tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News October 17, 2017 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
put away their most wanted criminal 86 years ago today. a quick dow check. we're close. it's very possible to gets nine points in a minute or so. cavuto is on deck right now. >> neil: all right, shepard. thank you very much. we're so, so close. it still might close over 23,000. let it be known the dow jones industrial closed 23,000 at 11:06 a.m. this is when it went down. might close again over that level, but when it did go over that and stick over that for a good chunk of the day, a lot of it built on a improving numbers we've been seeing out of the factory sector, very good news on earnings. we're in and out of this level. but the fact of the matter is, this market has been on a tear to put it mildly. again, with this advance today, led by the likes of boeing and
visa, caterpillar, mcdonalds, apple, i can go on and on, you're looking at one record after the other. even if this is under 23,000, it is still good enough for a record. the 45th in this circle here. the most we've seen in a single year. we're not done with this year. deidra bolton on what is taking us here. deidra? >> you said it, neil. it's a very big day. you pointed to the fourth time these 1,000 point moves have been made in one calendar year. that is a record. it's so big, we came out here, we asked people here on the street what they think. here's the more colorful comments. >> it's exciting. trump will be happy.
>> the markets have been supported by cheap money. everything happening now is not necessarily real. >> only 30 stocks. that's the way i look at it. >> the economy is booming. we can only grow from here. >> okay. we can only grow from here. you heard that one person just cite the concern about the loose monetary policy. that is something that a lot of market watchers are more concerned about as time goes on. but let's talk about the ones that really bowied the average. super positive earning results from healthcare companies. united healthcare, j&j higher. as a group, this area buoyed the s&p 500 as well. strong earnings coming in from the financials. goldman sachs and morgan stanley. they lost a little steam as the afternoon went on. it's worth noting that both of those companies earnings were better than what the street expected. better than what wall street had anticipated and that gives a lot of people in the financial services sector hope that the best is yet to come. so we have a list as well for some of these stocks that have been contributing the most to the gains since the last marker was hit. overall, you can see at least
the bulls talk about strong corporate earnings. the fact that a lot of companies have cash on the side and that the global economy is actually in better stead than it has been in years. if you want to find bears, they're harder to find. but as the young man cited, the concern that the fed has been too active. if there's a shock from anywhere, our system or another, maybe the fed will have less tools to help out. meantime, 23,000. very much in sights, neil. back to you. >> neil: that guy had to be a broker or an fbn watcher. thank you. if you want the see this continue, do you need tax cuts? over the last year, roughly since donald trump's election, the market has added better than five trillion in wealth. the thinking he would have a
hospitable environment and he would provide the tonic being the tax cuts. how do they stand? are they going to confirm this rally and bring us even higher or not? let's go to scott martin, katherine rooney and fbn's charles payne. what do you think, charles? >> i'm not so hung up on the idea that we must have tax cuts to keep this going. the wheels of commerce have already begun to turn. we had a report from the new york fed at a three-year high. it do have tails everything i'm looking at. the night that president trump was elected, american businesses came out of their foxholes and went back to what they normally do. attempt to grow market share with a better mousetrap and aggressive actions. we're seeing it play out, a tax could would be wonderful, it would help but i'm not so sure it's a deal breaker. >> neil: scott what do you think? >> i'm in the tax cut camp.
the market got boosted with hopes of a cut. steve mnuchin told you we would have this done by august. here we are talking about maybe christmas. so listen, i think the market has found some sea legs since then. earnings have been awesome. we're entering another earnings season which will be banging from numbers blowing away expectations. tech companies will carry the water. going forward, a great opportunity to bring back the trillions of dollars sports fans that is sitting overseas because of the president's tax policy here in the united states. you fix that, get that money back here, you'll see dow 25,000 by the time the tax cuts hit. >> yeah, think about it. that's not percentage-wise that big of a leap. katherine, one of the things late in the day, we got word that there might be a consensus bipartisan agreement on healthcare that would be treated favorably by republicans and democrats and has the support of the president of the united states. the devil is in the details.
it would can't for continuing tax revenues to buttress coverage those that can't get them on their own. it would be a short term fix. how would the markets react to that sending the stage for bipartisan tax reform. >> i think the market will love it. let's face it, the marketing was in a recession until 3q of 2016. we had double digit growth in the s&p 500 and the dow jones industrial avenue. my view, we're going to need additional impetus to keep the rallies moving. we can't sustain this without companies growing the bottom line. how do you do that? lower costs, higher less compliance and investing in your company and growing your profits, which is more take-home for these companies and less of
a tax take. >> the other idea of this band aid is get rid of rules and regulations. that's how this president kicked off his administration. we're going to talk to scott pruitt let that effort. his take has been that that is something that financially unburdens companies and unshackles this to do all sorts of things that is playing out now. if you had to pick what is driving this, would it be the expectations of tax cuts or regulations? real regulations going away. >> real regulations going away has had an amazing impact. you saw the national association of manufacturers said the number 3 concern two years ago, 80% said said it was number 1. already having an impact. let me tell you something. yesterday or this morning, caterpillar got an upgrade. let me tell you what the street is looking for. next year they think they're going to earn did 6.60. three months ago, it was $5.30.
the wheels of commerce are moving. if people are waiting for a tax cut, they're going to wait and the train is going to leave without them. it's begun. one of the reasons why is because of regulatory aform. it won't be as grandiose but it's going to happen. >> scott, you could make the argument that if in the middle of this they score a bipartisan deal on healthcare, it might not be to either party's liking. but it would be a way to advance the ball. wall street could respond to that tax cuts or no tax cuts. i still think they want to see those tax cuts. what about you? >> yeah, that would be something that could sway the concerns of tax cuts being put off into the future. charles is right, neil. if you look at the business confidence surveys, multiyear highs. now we have a white house, a d.c. that at least is business friendly, not say business fearing. going forward, if you're looking at investing in the s&p 500 companies, you have to take that to heart with respect to the
hiring plans, the spending plans that u.s. businesses are going to have because of the confidence they have in the white house. >> all right, guys. i want to thank you very much. senator john thune, thanks for being here with us. >> night to be here. thanks, neil. >> neil: what do you think is happening on this seemingly bipartisan deal backed by the president on healthcare rework that would at least give it a short term fix, enough to health exchanges or those exchanges that are left and provide funds for those that need help affording premiums? >> i think you can describe it as a bridge project, neil. it's an attempt to get us from where we are today to a time when we have the votes and have a more comprehensive repeal and replacement of obamacare. but it provides stability in the marketplace, provides some -- the states some flexibility. we're looking at it. self trying to digest the
details. give senator alexander and others great credit for at least attempting work with the administration with the president and his team to come up with a solution in the near term that will keep the markets stable until such time that we can more fully repeal and replace obamacare. >> neil: you're talking about lamar alexander and patty murray. the president was involved in that. did you know that? >> yes, the president was involved. what his -- when he announced he wasn't going to fund the cost sharing payments, basically i think it was an eye to put pressure on congress to come up with a solution. his council advised him he didn't have legal authority to continue to make the payments. he was hoping by now we would have a more robust bill in place. but this represents an attempt to try to build a bridge till such time when we can come up with a bigger replacement bill. at least takes care of the near term issues. the president has been
consulting with senator alexander and with others about how best to do this. i think there's been -- as a result of that consultation, a lot of forward movement. we'll see again. always have to look at the details, neil. i haven't had an opportunity to circle back and get a deep dive explanation about how this might work. it is an attempt i think to try to move the ball down the field. >> neil: if the president likes it, senator, will you feel increased pressure to vote for it? >> if this is something that the president believes is useful in terms of getting to us that day when we can vote on graham cassidy and we have 50 votes in the senate, then i think i'm included to be for something that will at least in the near term provide the kind of stability that we need. the devil is in the details. i want to see what the flexibilities to the state include. they need to be real, the flexibility to the states and with respect to waivers and those things. if that satisfies the concerns i have, you know, i can see myself
being someone that would be inclined to be for this. i need to look at it. >> neil: rand paul has indicated unless the middle class end up getting a net tax cut with allowances, it would be tough for him to vote for this. lindsey graham came out and wondered whether the senator was automatically going to be a no regardless. they have been sniping at each other. does that worry you when you see that stuff? >> you always want to see those discussions stay within the family. that's the problem with twitter accounts. >> neil: do you have a twitter account, senator? >> i do. but i use it sparingly i'd say, neil. it's important that all of our members try to get to where they can be for tax reform. tax reform is critical to economic growth. we've had this conversation before. you and i both know if we want the growth rate back up to where
it should be in this country and higher wages and bigger paychecks for american workers, we have to reform our outdated tax code. the only way to do that is the budget. i hope in the end we can have all republican senators vote for it. if we do, i predict in the end we'll have democrats that will be for tax reform, too. it will be very popular when it's all said and done. >> neil: if you start sending out sniping tweets, game is over. >> thanks very much. >> neil: a big pow-wow going on the new york. nfl owners, players discussing the controversy over the national anthem. what is the middle ground on this? after this. usaa to me means
...you might be missing to stasomething... ♪ ...your eyes. that's why there's ocuvite. it helps replenish nutrients your eyes can lose as you age. nourish your eyes to help keep them healthy. ocuvite. be good to your eyes. >> neil: all right. how to handle this. the nfl owners, players union huddling on how to deal with the anthem controversy. rick leventhal outside the meet going on as we speak in new york
city. what's the latest, rick? >> neil, this has become a real p.r. challenge for the nfl and costly for the networks. one analyst said cbs ratings on football are down 17% over last year and player protests are getting the blame. the majority of fans don't want to see a mix of politics and football on sunday afternoon and view the kneeling as disruptful to the military and the flag. there was a meeting this morning with about a dozen owners and 13 or so players focusing on the topic. a joint statement released by the league and the players says today owners and players had a productive meeting on how to work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities. darius butler spoke after the meeting. >> will players take a knee? >> that's going to be an
individual choice. i think the ownership and team and league is -- and the players, we're going in the right direction. >> the two sides pledge to find common ground did your the next couple days. not surprisingly, these meetings drew protests of their own with a couple dozen people in front of the hotel carrying signs, chanting, reading poems and at one point kneeling in front of the front doors saying they were taking a knee against white supremacy. a couple of them made it inside and confronted dallas cowboys owner jerry jones who is one of the few owners in the nfl who has told his players if you don't stand for the national anthem, you will be benched for the game. unclear if they come to any resolution in the next couple days. we expect to hear from the nfl commissioner probably tomorrow afternoon. >> neil: thanks very much. rick leventhal.
a letter wrote to the president to ask him to bring together the country. nate bowyer with us here today. nate any response from the president or colin kaepernick? >> no. just the other 349 million americans. >> neil: your goal is to get them kind of on the same page and quit talking fast each other and finger pointing each other. you think that is possible at this stage? >> i think it's possible. i always -- i have hope and i believe in us as a country and it would be a powerful gesture. much like the owners and players and the league and the nfl are all sitting down and having this conversation. i don't really understand those protests of the conversations going on. that's productive and what should be happening. we all want to see change no matter whether we want to see people take that pride in the anthem and the flag that we feel or if it's about social injustices.
those are the conversations that have to take place. i don't understand the protest there. i think that that would be incredibly powerful. to see president trump and colin kaepernick as much as they're on opposites of this issue to at least have a conversation and engage each other and listen. >> neil: the president's view is black and white. you stand for the national anthem, end of story. jerry jones said you stand for the national anthem. we can kneel together before it but we stand together. that would lock your colleagues in a corner that many don't want to be in. how do you get around this? even when it's explained to them money is on the line, ratings are on the line, careers are on the line. what went down? >> a lot of meetings and conversations are about the nfl supporting some of the programs and the things that these players are doing in a positive way off the field. there's a lot of guys in the
league doing good stuff in the community, embracing police officers and police force around trying to help bridge the gap in the divide between some of the young people in these communities and get that interaction going. that's where it's going to start. with education and understanding that most cops are incredible people. it's a really hard job. they do it the right way every day. a lot of what these players are protesting is better training and improvement in policies. it's not so much i hate cops. certain people and players that said that. that's not acceptable. it's not what it's about. the majority of the players kneeling are more about action and programs and stuff like that. that's what the nfl looks like they'll be supporting. >> neil: that might be to your point a middle ground. thanks, nate. thank you for your service as well. >> thanks, neil. >> neil: speaking of service, u.s.-backed forces are liberating an isis strong hold in raqqa, syria.

>> neil: all right. the good news we're hearing is that u.s.-backed forces are liberating a isis strong hold in syria. the bad news, that doesn't mean the fight against tearer is over. who would know that more, the man that shot osama bin laden, rob o'neal. great to have you here. >> great to be here. i try to keep a positive outlook. there's enough negativity out there. >> neil: let's get a sense of what we're hearing.
this would be a major achievement and why. >> they were the first terrorist organization to have an islamic state. they never got it. they started to realize once we took a town in northwest syria that that's where they said they would fight the romans, it was taken by turkish forces and our allieses. they realized that would be the caliphate. they thought we would take raqqa and now we are. isis, the foreign fighters are realizing this wasn't it and they shouldn't have come here. nobody is to be found. people are trying to surrender. some are just trying to get out. that's good. they have them surrounded to there's a possible there and a stadium that they had executions and prisoners. >> neil: you need a center of power? >> they did at first. they believe as what they had been taught, that's their caliphate and that's where we take over the world. now they're realizing it's going to come in a different spot.
we're not going to convert them to oh, maybe democracy is the way to go. >> neil: they're like cockroaches. you kill one and more come out. >> they do. it's like nailing jell-o to the wall. we're hating places that they're training. they're having a tough time training them as well. they'll keep moving around and disappear into the desert. now we're going to get into the s sunni and shiia. think of the sunny that were following they're. they're looking to supporters and get the shiia violence back to them. you have to involve the kurds and the forces and -- >> how do you keep track of this? when you gunned down osama bin laden, it was a huge achievement. didn't you think this would go on? there would be other players?
no osama bin laden's own son. >> yeah. they're trying to get back. osama bin laden was an anomaly. someone that popular and that -- he was the number 1 terrorist as far as we were concerned. taking him out struck a blow to al-quaida. >> neil: was the son there that need? >> he was there on the stairs. very impressive agencies told us exactly where we would be. reran into him and eliminated that threat seconds before osama bin laden. >> neil: but he was deemed the air apparent. >> the younger one is somewhere in pakistan obviously being guarded by another network. the pakistani intelligence. this is so complex. >> are they as loyal to them as they were to -- >> no. al-quaida is out there. al-quaida is good. they want -- isis wants to step you in the front. al-quaida gets you in the back. they'll wait until you're not ready. they attacked the world trade
center. it wasn't what they wanted and came back. they haven't forgotten about us regardless of how isis doing to who is taking a knee in the nfl. >> neil: when they see us fixating on this, do they laugh or -- >> they shake their heads. they realize that they're not in it for the long haul and they are. moammar qaddafi from libya, he said we can win this war and force sharia without firing a shot. all he said is we need to have more kids than they do. they haven't forgotten the end of the world under this version. i'm not trying to generalize. a lot of the terrorists, that's what they want. when they see us bickering over silly stuff, they're laughing and they know they can win it. >> neil: rob o'neal that man that took out osama bin laden.

>> neil: well, he runs the epa. but to hear many environmentalists say it, scott pruitt is not exactly on the side of the environment. more of those companies and those fossil fuel industries that destroy the environment. he says they have it wrong. scott pruitt talking to me earlier. >> our job is to be informed in making good decisions on how we regulate to achieve good environmental outcomes and to do so with the statutes that process is the right process. but neil, as we look at the overreach with the clean power plan. i was in kentucky talking about the war on coal that the previous administration engaged in. the war is over. the president said that. i was announcing that with those folks. as a regulator, you shouldn't
regulate on any war in your company. you should look at utility companies making decisions on stability, cost, using all forms of fuel in the generation of electricity. >> neil: isn't natural gas the biggest threat to coal? you look market forces prevail? that's the biggest burden that the coal producers face. you know, the clean natural gas alternative that just rose and quickly became the new energy de jour in this country. >> it was the availed purpose by the previous administration that increased burden. failed -- >> neil: so you say the prior administration targeted in this case all the fossil fuel industries? >> without question. >> neil: the reason why i mentioned it, there was a great deal of talk about your move now
to go one step further to stop this so-called sue and settle approach that we've had to curb legal settlements. the sierra club has said what you did here. there's a general hostility that citizen enforcement of environmental laws and reflects the fact that administrator pruitt doesn't want these laws enforced. what do you say to that? >> i'm a former attorney general. i led a grand jury. i know what it means to prosecute folks. we've begun the process to prosecute officials across the country. what happened here the last several years is not enforcement, neil. it was an abuse of the rule-making process. the epa would engage in discussions with these various third parties and agree to certain only cases. changing timelines that continue had put in the statute and then go to a court and say, put this within a consent decree and use that to go to states and citizens all over the country and say now you have to do this.
then go through rule making. that's a sub version of the rule-making process. it's called sue and settle. any agency of the federal government that engages in substantive rule making through the judicial process is abusing their authority. >> neil: the press has a field day trying to peg you on climate change, sir. i know you tried to address it in the past. i want to know for the record, you said that you believe in climate change. you believe it in a large part could be contributing to it. but you don't take the leap where man should spend a lot of money -- i think i've got it right -- to address that. what is your position on it? as you know, president trump when he was running for office blamed this on china. said it was a china hoax and they get off scot-free. your views. >> i think the president's view like the paris accord that we
exited where china and india didn't have to take any steps until the year 2030. in fact, india conditioned all of it on receiving $2.5 trillion in aide. when we talk about c 02 reductions, we're at pre-1994 levels today as conversion to natural gas in the generation of electricity. we have reduced our c 02 footprint
almost 20%. so we're leading with action. >> neil: so your issue wasn't denying the fact that man might have a role in climate change. just the degree to which we would bear the burden to pay it. >> comparatively to the other nations. >> neil: if india and china were to pay up or pony up more than they are now, which is next to nothing at least in the early years of that accord but they will down the road, if they were to do that right now, would the u.s. consider then rejoining and honoring that accord?
>> i think the better discussion neil is not to put argument official targeting like in paris,28 to 30% that the own administration failed to achieve. it's to focus on what we've done to reduce the c 02 footprint and expert that technology to places like china and india. all that being said, the tools and the tool box under the clean air act on how to address this issue is a very important question. i can't imagine authority under the clean air act, i can't create it out of thin air, forgive the reference and make it up. that's what the previous administration did. the clean air was so unprecedented that the u.s. supreme court interveneand issued a state of enforcement against the unlawful action -- >> neil: so you didn't buy the obama administration's argument that 6,600 premature deaths could have been avoided or that 150,000 birth defects, asthma attacks and the like in children could have been avoided?
>> neil, we regulate pollutants under the national ambient air quality standards program. that is focused on health. there's no cost benefit analysis at all. what they did with the reductions, they double counted. they said we should get the benefit of the double counting to really spice up the cost benefit analysis. all that being said, neil, the fact
of the matter is this. we are leading the world with respect to our c 02 footprints. we're doing so through innovation and technology. we have to ask and answer the question. what authority has congress given the epa to engage in rule making to reduce c 02? the past administration didn't do that. our administration is. >> neil: okay. epa administrator scott pruitt. i want you to meet a guy instrumental in the reagan tax cuts criticizing republicans these days about the trump ones.
embrace who you are. that advice is coming from phil gramm who you'll see and the guy he got the tax cuts through for, a fellow named ronald reagan. after this. i've always wanted to create those experiences for others. with my advisor's help along the way, it's finally my turn to be the host. when you have the right financial advisor, life can be brilliant. ameriprise
>> i decided to vote yes on moving forward with the budget after talking with the president this morning, this weekend and again this afternoon. he's very appreciative of me voting to move on to the budget. i've told him though that i can't vote for the budget if it exceeds the spending caps. >> neil: all right. that is rand paul making it clear for now, don't blame him if there's any stumbling over the budget that would grease the skids. lindsey graham is saying if there's a way that rand paul to say no, he will. rand paul saying that's very unfair. whether this happened back a generation ago when they were contemplating the big reagan tax cuts, i have no idea but this
guy had a front row seat in it. tax senator phil gramm. what do you make of this? >> well, let me remind you that rand paul's father, ron paul, was a member of congress when i was the author in the house of the reagan budget. i went to ron paul. i in essence begged him to vote with us because the vote was going to be close. he couldn't vote for the budget, he said, because it had a deficit. so i made the argument, which i thought was a pretty reasonable argument, that this was one of the most dramatic changes in the fiscal policies of the nation in american history, and that we could vote on a budget with zero deficit when jesus came back. but that today the choice was not a heavenly choice.
it was a choice between governing or protesting. i gave him the analogy. some day you're going to be on the front porch of a nursing home and your grandchildren are going to ask you what did you do in america when you were in congress. are you going to tell them oh, america went to hell when i was in congress but i voted about it every step of the way. >> neil: what did he do? >> i wanted to say i made it better. we did. we won. he voted no on final passage. but thank goodness we won. >> neil: okay. so much -- >> it's not new. >> neil: i know this isn't new to your point there, but do you think they're going to overcome their differences and at -- enough that they can't afford any more than two republicans leaving to get this passed? >> yeah, i think in the end, neil, they will get it done. they have one procedural hurdle. you have to have a budget so
that you can use reconciliation where you only have to have 51 votes. i think the second hurdle is the democrats are going to vote on amendments and a way to create mischief and a way to take the proposal apart to make it unacceptable. in the end, on a final passage vote, it is inconceivable to me that this would lose. rand paul will vote for this tax cut on final passage. >> neil: can you see any democrats supporting it? >> yeah, i think two or three could. you've got to realize, democrats have now as a party basically adopted the position that their duty is to redistribute wealth. not create it. that private sector and investment and growth is no longer relevant to them. they want the government to grow.
they see prosperity coming from the government. so there's still two or three that are up in tough elections in states that the president carried. i think we can get their vote. >> thanks, phil. very good catching up with you. a historic figure at a historic time. the last time we saw tax cuts. that was more than 30 years. could be now. we'll see. meanwhile with all the fighting back and forth the senator just got into and the nastiness developing in washington and the threats from north korea, you almost don't want to get out in the morning, right? you almost don't want to see any possibility of hope. leave to it my colleague to say, there is. it's something that we're duty bound to remind our children. fortunately she has got just the book to do that. and i don't think it's just for kids, by the way. she's next. ♪
>> neil: i don't know if you've ever had a chance to catch my colleague, ainsley earhardt doing interviewed but she's so nice and inviting that people say like incredibly embarrassing things in their interview. so all of a sudden, they say did i just say that? but she listens. there's a consent. she puts your mind and heart at ease. that's why i don't think that this is exclusively a children's book she's written even "through your eyes" rings that and a promising message here. but i think it applies to adults as well. everyone calm. >> calm down. stop and smell the roses. the first book was about what i wanted to teach my child. and then you have a baby. you realize that you can learn so much more from them. it is to slow down.
it's to walk through life and look at things through the eyes of a child. it's truly to be excited when you see rain. who is excited when you see rain? i was standing next to my daughter when she saw rain dripping from the sky for the first time. to sit there and witness a human being and a human being you love more than anything else in this world other than jesus, of course. i just thought it was so phenomenal to witness a human being seeing that for the first time. seeing a dog -- >> neil: how old is she? >> she will be two in november. when i took her for the first time when it was raining, i didn't realize it was raining. you know how it is in new york city. i forgot my umbrella. i have to get to the 16th floor. i won't get a taxi, they'll be taken. i turn my stroller around to whip her around so we can get back in the elevator. she's just staring at the rain. just made me think, okay, ainsley. you have to slow down. you have to take a step back and looking at life through her
eyes. she teaches me -- the beginning of the book talks about you have a list for your kids. my daughter walks into a room and she assesses the situation. she's not the one that is -- >> neil: sounds like you're co-anchors. >> my brother's children walk in with this huge smile on their face. sometimes my daughter does. but it's just cool to see how they're all different. how you love them each. >> neil: wait till they become teenagers and they have phone. >> that's what everybody says. >> neil: exactly. my teenage boys are married to their gadgets. having said that, it's interesting to see life through their eyes. but how do you keep that fire? how do you just sort of separate yourself, especially like tragedies the last couple weeks in vegas and elsewhere. you keep her distant from that now. can't always be in the future. >> i guess my face is strong. i focus on that. >> neil: that's the way you were brought up. >> that's right. my dad is here visiting. he was on the set with "fox and friends" this morning.
>> neil: yeah, he wouldn't leave. we had to kick him off. >> he won't leave new york. i said can you stay? he has to get back. i love having him here. that's a good -- i'm glad you brought that up. i'm soaking up every opportunity i get to be with my parents. every opportunity to be with my daughter. i'm 41 years old. >> i have ties older than you. go ahead. >> i waited to my late 30s to have a baby. i remember hearing someone say that their child had some sort of a disease and the child wasn't going to live long. so the father was racing to get to the child's crib when she would wake up at 2:00 a.m. most parents dread that. i remember hearing that story when she was pregnant. when she woke up, i couldn't wait to get to her crib. you never know when your last day be. >> neil: you have a demanding, time consuming job. how do you deal with it? >> it's extremely difficult. it's so hard. i go to a lot of therapy.
>> neil: you don't have a big head. you step back. how do you keep it going? >> i just -- my dad and mom have always said don't forget from where you came. you know, i'm grateful to the people in south carolina that got me here and the people that buy the books and some of the money goes to "folds of honor." we're giving scholarships to kids that wouldn't normally go to college. their parents died in the line of duty fighting for our country. so bolt of honor gives money to them. >> neil: a beautiful book. >> thank you. >> neil: again, "through your eyes, my child's gift to me." >> everyone says that about you. >> neil: more after this. her dad is here, too. he said neil, one rough questions for her and it's the end. more after this.
how much money do you think you'll need in retirement? then we found out how many years that money would last them. how long do you think we'll keep -- oooooohhh! you stopped! you're gonna leave me back here at year 9? how did this happen? it turned out, a lot of people fell short, of even the average length of retirement. we have to think about not when we expect to live to, but when we could live to. let's plan for income that lasts all our years in retirement. prudential. bring your challenges. >> neil: so close, so close this morning to 3,000.
