tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News October 20, 2017 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
that lindsey graham says what they're going to do, they're going to give the forces on the ground the ability to defend themselves. that's been a big debate, whether they can send drones that are armed or at all. you'll hear more about that. i'm trace gallagher in for shepard. neil is next. >> neil: market down. probably used pencil. i'm neil cavuto, this is "your world." another record-setting world. five days in a row. we've seen the major averages do this. the dow and the s&p. the do you over 23,000. it marches on confidence that tax cuts are coming what has that going is a budget that passed last night out of the united states senate. it was close. but what we have seem to telegraph from that or at least what traders are telegraphing from that, it's full steam ahead to get the tax cuts done. there's some wrinkles. it's not a slam dunk. we're getting indications from
the speaker of the house that there might have to be an additional bracket for the very rich. we don't know at what level that income level would kick in, in order to show that this is something that would benefit the well-to-do. the details are what bracket that would be. there's slight differences between the speaker of the house and the president of the united states on this subject. take a look. >> the president is the one that has been very insistent that we reintroduce what we call the fourth bracket. meaning we don't lower taxes for high income individuals. that i think is what he's talking about. so all that revenue goes to the middle class tax cut. >> when paul mentions maybe one more category, which i'd rather not have, may not happen but the -- he says this. he's very plain. if for any reason he says if there's any reason the middle
class isn't being taken care of. >> neil: that is a very important distinction talking with maria bartiromo about whether he would entertain another bracket for the well to do. the rich pay the disproportionate share of the taxes. what isn't clear, whether that happens or what the rate would be. the top rate now under the president's plan falls from 39.6% to 35%. now would that top rate then go back up for a certain group of americans all the way to 39. 6% in between? let's ask a guy who is going to have a important role in this, mark meadows. he chairs the freedom caucus. good to have you, congressman. >> great to be back with you, neil and talking tax reform. >> neil: what do you make of what speaker ryan and donald
trump seem to be delineating here? a new rate. one that would ensnare the rich. >> part of that is getting down to what we've said a long time. we need to settle on a plan and debate it. i can tell you, having spoken both with the speaker and with the president of the united states, his focus, the president's focus, is really on those middle income wage earners. with three brackets, we should figure it out and not look at adjusting that. it's more on the income levels with the brackets out there. in the end, this will be a huge tax savings for moms and dads on main street. the traders were optimistic and right about getting this done. >> neil: and steve mnuchin said the markets will fall. he didn't say how much or what the impact would be if tax cuts don't materialize. do you agree?
>> i think they would. but i don't know that all of that has been baked in. i think there's been some real skepticism on can we get anything done. neil, we try to make sure that if there's any significant news, that we share it with you here. i can tell you, within the last couple hours, members of the freedom caucus held a conference call where we were discussing that senate budget. most of the feeling that came out of that particular conference call was that if we can move the time frame up and be aggressive and making sure that not only we vote on that budget next week without going to conference, but that we start the marketup the following week and ultimately vote on this before thanksgiving, we're all on board to do that and so as we start to look at that, that should be good news to those wanting tax cuts and tax reform. the president called me to ask and say, could you consider shortening the process? we have been in communication with the leader and the speaker
to let -- >> neil: when did he call you to express that -- >> he called yesterday in anticipation of the vote that he was hopeful that would pass last night and i'd did it. >> neil: to vote on that budget, congressman? not the one that you agreed but on that budget and proceed from there? >> right. what would happen, that senate budget would come back instead of going to conference and would delay this for two to three weeks. if we can make sure that we're rolling out a real plan that lowers taxes for americans, i think most of the conservatives are willing to say we'll get on board and move this forward so that we can get it done and get it on the president's desk. >> neil: that's a big deal, chairman. so you would hold your notes, a lot of issues there in that budget that you and your colleagues in the house that are not fans of but you would vote on that, let's say you pass it and proceed from there to avoid the whole back and forth?
>> well, that's right. it's really -- would be a three-part step. we would go ahead and vote on the senate bill next week, start the markup process the following week. hopefully have a floor vote in the house seven to ten days after that. i'm optimistic that we'll get there. >> neil: on this additional rate, you're against that. you don't think that is necessary? >> i mean, really, what it's about is i'm against having a top rate. if we're going to do that, we need to just admit that at times that having a top rate for those that earn a million dollars or more is a political reality but doesn't boost the economy. i'm for giving everybody a break -- >> neil: you're talking about beyond the 35% rate. >> right. >> neil: who you would set that rate for, you would be philosophically against it. >> it's not a line in the sand.
we can work with the three tax brackets and be aggressive -- >> neil: but why -- is it's that republicans -- some colleagues are afraid they're giving up benefits to the rich? >> that's part of it. the other part of it is any time you're there, if you're not being aggressive on those million income wage earners and making sure they get benefit -- it's about the special interests. we're about for the forgot on the man and woman. as long as we can manage that process, keep it to three. it's time to start talking about the details and do it next week. >> neil: would it still be if you had your druthers a tax cut that is retroactive to the beginning of the year or -- >> without a doubt. we need to do that, to put this capital to work on everybody's behalf and get the economy going again. >> neil: thank you, sir. mark meadows a lot of news broke
there. chad, what i thought we heard he said, we want to vote on it. avoid this back and forth and coming to sort of a reconciliation on that. what do you make of that and the timetable that he seems to be spurring on here? >> well, they want to step on the gas here, neil, for a couple reasons. there's variables that are hitting up here on capitol hill, which are things that people night not have considered. look at how close that vote was last night on the budget frame work for tax reform. 51-49. rand paul from kentucky was the sole no. you lose number else, you're in trouble. >> neil: do you why he was a no? >> he was opposed to the fact that there was this extra account. it's $43 billion, which is real money that is not counted against the budget. it's like a slush fund to fight
wars overseas. he might vote for tax reform but -- >> neil: i whatn't to be clear here. john mccain voted for this. are we to conclude from that that he would be a yes vote or taxes or taking a leap here? >> you have to see what the final result is. the devil in the details. that's where some say the devil won't be in the details. some members will be vote for something. if it's some tax cuts and rushing up against christmas, they hold everybody here in washington, the stockholm syndrome and keep them from getting home to trim the tree, they'll vote for anything. but a couple key votes they're up against. that's is why time is of the essence. they talked about christmas or thanksgiving. they're concerned. those votes are so tight in the senate, maybe not having the votes. think about the health of john mccain. he's been out. what happens if he's away for his cancer treatments. thad cochran from mississippi was not here initially.
was not supposed to be here and almost imperilled the budget. he said i'm here. he wasn't here because he was dealing with a urinary tract infection. some said senator cochran was nudged to vote. he raised his hand at the wrong time. so if they're not able to vote, that could imperil this. on december 12, there will be a special election in alabama. roy moore, a conservative republican against doug jones. we don't know how they would vote on this. roy moore's campaign said they had nothing to add when asked about fox earlier today. no position being taken. that could be a factor. you could slip below the 50 vote threshold easily. >> neil: thanks very much. just to bring you up to date.
breaking news here. they want to rush this through. the house open to that is voting on what the senate voted on with its budget, different than the house budget. just to expedite the process and get tax cuts done with a house vote by thanksgiving and maybe a full vote before christmas. devil is in the details. this is the house's way of saying, we're on board. we want to move fast. what is your excuse? we're on top of that on a record day for the dow. more after this. i was a good soldier.
>> neil: all right. lax where they're looking at or the faa is looking at a possible ban on laptops for all checked luggage amid explosion risks. this would not apply if you carried a lap on the on the plane itself. but the fact of the matter is, it's getting looked at and more closely. matt finn at chicago o'hare with more. matt, what's going on? >> neil the faa is concerned that the batteries or laptops in small electronic devices that are placed in checked bags below deck could overheat and set off an explosion. a study highlights the dangers especially if they're packed next to alcohol or hair spray cans. the study is scheduled to
reviewed by the united nations next week. countries like the u.s. could impose a ban on laptoped in checked bags. aviation officials say the ban would not change much for travelers. we talked with flyers here at o'hare. here's their opinions on the potential ban. >> i don't know if they explode or not. yes, they're doing it for our safety. if not, i don't think it's real. >> i understand the security concerns. >> i brought mine on with me anyway. i like look it going someplace i can't keep track of it. >> i don't like it in a checked bag. >> why not? >> it may disappear. >> sure. >> neil, the tsa says their number 1 concern is to prevent bombs disguised as laptops from getting on american planes. back to you. >> neil: thanks.
my next guest is not sold on the ban. from israel special operations, aaron cohen. a doubter here. why? >> the last state that your reporter just made was the faa said the biggest thing was trying to avoid bombs or hidden bombs from making it on the plane. most important thing to me, if you want to keep bombs from getting on the plane, let's stop focusing on would bes and could bes and maybes. that's what this is. when i looked at the report, the aerosol can was the biggest factor that could cause the battery to explode. you're not going to keep 10,000 laptops out of bags. get rid of the aerosol cans. it's less of a convenience. if you want to keep explosives on bags, start profiling behavior. when are we going to give the tsa to the fbi? this overpumped mall company that is a $75 billion disaster. we need to profile behavior at
the check in. that's the only way we're going to tighten up airline security, period. we're like 15 years to late. time to start with that. that's where i come out. >> neil: the laptop issues were because of the proximity to aerosol cans and the like. now, is that a lesser simply if it's in the passenger compartment? wouldn't that still be potentially an issue? >> it would be. but i don't think you can carry certain size cans on the plane. they have to be small. a great question. if aerosol is the main component to cause this battery to explode, which would disable what they're calling the fire suppression system, let's eliminate large aerosol cans to keep the laptops out of the cargo or out of the suitcases is an extremely high burden. it's about finding potential bombs in there. this is about finding potential bombs, the faa needs to stop.
let's start behavior raleigh profiling passengers to looking for murders. that's my israeli approach. >> neil: it's still he said she said, a day after the fact, the feud between general kelly and democratic congress woman frederica wilson. from the guy that un -- runs veterans affairs exclusively next. hey grandpa. hey, kid. really good to see you. you too. you tell grandma you were going fishing again? maybe. (vo) the best things in life keep going. that's why i got a subaru, too. introducing the all-new crosstrek. love is out there. find it in a subaru crosstrek.
the feud between that florida democratic congress woman, frederica wilson and the white house continues. it's something that i raised with v.a. secretary david shulkin. take a look. >> i'm focused on veterans issues. i don't have time for politics. i can tell you this, i spend time with the president. this is a president that is deeply concerned about those that we put in harm's way and cares about veterans issues. his heart is to provide comfort to those that have had the worst thing happen, which is to have lost a loved one or spouse or a child. these four brave soldiers, american heros, don't deserve to be politicized in this environment. >> neil: she referred to herself and the attention it's gotten as becoming a rock star. i've become a rock star now. what did you think of that? >> this is not about her. this is not about the individual people that are -- that we're
talking about. this is about people less than 1% of our country, the bravest, the best that we have that have gone out and lost their lives defending our country. the families are grieving. my focus is on those that have given the ultimate sacrifice and those that continue to defend our country and those that want to make themselves rock stars, i just really don't have to -- i can't pay attention to that right now. >> neil: switching to what you're trying to do right now at the v.a. and the thousand people that have lost their jobs that have been cracking down on abuse or laziness or all of that stuff. still senator john mccain is among those urging still more oversight of the v.a., its finances and et cetera. what do you think of that? >> the v.a. has a lot of issues and we're working at fixing them. we're not a perfect organization. we look forward to working with congress not only in finding solutions but in oversight.
we want to be addressing the problems and addressing them aggressively. senator john mccain has been a champion of the choice program. we just put out a new way of revamping the choice program that will give veterans more choice and take the red tape out of the system. we look forward to working with senator mccain and all of congress in a bipartisan way to get this done. >> neil: a lot of people look at the staff shortages, beyond those that you terminated, sir. they say especially some of the various union groups recepting the workers is that this is on you. i believe david cox, the president of the american federation of government employees. congress has given the secretary the money to fill the positions and he's not. what do you say? >> i don't think that david cox has his facts straight. we're filling all of our positions. we want to get the most talented healthcare professionals to come and serve at v.a. there's no hiring freezes in the
field. we have some in the corporate offices in washington. we're putting more money in hiring the right people to take care of our veterans. so we would rather have the union helping us find those individuals rather than going out and spending their time picketing and doing activities that frankly are not helping very much. >> neil: even your critics would commend you for the efforts to turn around what has been almost an impossible task at the v.a. so much so that you're presumably the top candidate to held the health and human services administration. tom price recently resigning. are you interested in that job? if it were offered would you take it? >> i came to washington to help fix the situation with our veterans. it's something i'm passionate about. i'm committed to v.a. i want to see this through. we have a lot of work to do at v.a. that's where 100% of my focus remains. >> neil: but health and human
services needs help, to. >> listen, health care is important for americans. i spent my career doing that. i like to finish jobs that i start. >> neil: all right. there's jobs that have to be done in both counts to your point. one of the things that came up with hhs is a, you're a doctor. the president is looking at revamping, obamacare, the affordable care act. he nixed what was a possible solution bantied about by republican and democrat senators to keep funding the insurance companies to keep benefits to those that can't afford them. just a position of a doctor, how do you feel about that? >> i think the number 1 issue is access. americans, particularly those that are of -- have needed the greatest help, need access to healthcare. there's no reason we can't make affordable healthcare affordable for all americans. i'm convinced we need to do this
on a bipartisan basis. we need to involve the industry in the solutions. the president is driving us towards finding a solution that works for all americans. >> neil: as you know, sir, tom price got in trouble over taxpayer finance trips and charter flights and the rest. sure enough when your name was bandied about this that a trip you and your wife took to denmark. they said you took a lot of personal travels. is it a big deal? explain. >> first off, i did nothing at all wrong and i look forward to getting a full investigation to let everybody understand that. we met with five of our allies. the people that might alongside us in our wars on veterans issues. there was no private jets. we flew commercial. we did work first and on weekends and after hours, we
enjoyed some of the sights on our money, not the taxpayer money. this is consistent with every single rule and everything that was done appropriately. so i want to get back to focusing on what matters to this country, what matters to american veterans and the distractions and politics in washington have no interests to me. i'm a physician. i came here to fix issues. washington can do whatever games it does. i'm staying focused on fixing issues for veterans. >> neil: i looked into the trip. i saw you attended all of these health issues events. i guess it says something of the toxic nature of washington. here you were approved by your position, 100-0. it's tough to do. but it is indicative of where we stand right now in washington. so have you had your fill of it? in other words, given what you deal with and whether people like you, dislike you, it's toxic and it would be this the
kind of thing that would come up if you entertain other cabinet positions? >> there's no question. it shouldn't be this hard to come and serve your country to leave the private sector. but what keeps me going every day is the work that we're doing to fix the issues in this country. i do believe we're making progress. there's no doubt, you need a thick skin to work in washington. you have to stay focused on the issues and believe in what you're doing. i do believe that we're working to make a difference. i'm committed to seeing this through so that we can have a sustainable system who -- for those that raise their hand to defend our country. >> neil: on that point, sir, that means that you think there's a valid role for v.a. hospitals, for department of veteran affairs and just giving them a pass or card to go to a private facility, that doesn't cut it. they need the special care that a v.a. hospital facility can provide. that that's unique to their experiences.
>> you know, neil, i came to washington with an open mind on this issue. i'm thoroughly convinced the v.a. system is essential for the national security of this country. that when you raise your hand to go off and defend the country, you have to know that there are people and organizations there when you come back that are there for you and committed to you for the rest of your life if you need them. so i believe this system, which has had lots of problems, sometimes spanning back decades needs to be fixed and needs to be here for generations to come. >> neil: all right. v.a. secretary david shulkin. do you remember that meeting on the tarmac between barack obama's attorney general, loretta lynch and bill clinton? a lot of revelations since that time. they weren't just discussing apparently grandkids. she was up on capitol hill today. wouldn't you know, so was catherine herridge. the update next.
>> attorney general lynch, did you tell director comey to call the clinton e-mail investigation a matter? na. ever since we switched to fedex ground business has been great. they're affordable and fast... maybe "too affordable and fast." what if... "people" aren't buying these books online, but "they" are buying them to protect their secrets?!?! hi bill. if that is your real name. it's william actually. hmph! affordable, fast fedex ground.
former attorney general loretta lynch meeting with members of the house intelligence committee. more questions raised about that meeting at the airport. what transpired between she and former president bill clinton. catherine herridge is here and catching up with mrs. lynch. what did you find out? >> thank you, neil. lynch was on the hill to really deal with the russia probe. she couldn't escape questions of her handling about the clinton e-mail case and whether she politicized it. >> attorney general lynch, did you direct director comey to call the clinton e-mail investigation a matter? did you tell director comey to call the clinton e-mail investigation a matter? did you seek permission from anyone within the white house before you took the meeting with bill clinton on the tarmac? >> can you address any of the issued raised by director comey in front of the senate
intelligence committee? >> lynch ignored our questions. one of the central issues is this june 27th meeting on the tarmac with bill clinton. if you see here, you can see the security detail, a tall man with the white house. we think that is bill clinton. this week, the senator asked whether she made the decision to meet with bill clinton on her own or if she sought the okay from the white house. >> do you know if there was a phone call between the former attorney general mrs. lynch and the white house regarding whether or not she should take a meeting with former president clinton on the tarmac? >> no. the inquiry could be probably directed to the deputy attorney general. >> i'll do that. >> lynch met with republicans and democrats on the how intelligence committee in the secure facility behind me for four hours. nobody spoke to reporters.
it's not clear whether she could be recalled to this committee depending on developments in the russia case or even developments in this analysis of how she handles the clinton e-mails, neil. >> neil: thanks, catherine herridge. >> you're welcome. >> neil: you know how the senate vote went down on the budget. one republican not voting at all. all democrats were nos. it's a familiar pattern. by next guest has written an intriguing book detailing it because he lived it. and has the battle scars to prove it. hi i'm joan lunden.

i'm ryan awith chantix.king smoking was comforting. it was like a security blanket. it made me feel good, it really did. i would doubt myself that i could actually quit, but with chantix i did it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood,
or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. i'm so proud to be a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. many insurance plans cover chantix for a low or $0 copay. >> neil: all right. stop me if you haven't heard this before. all of a sudden, we have a major initiative out of the senate that was along a party line vote for the most part. every democrat voting against the senate budget initiative. only one republican voting against it. it's a familiar drill and a common theme to my next guest.
author of an intriguing book that looks into this polarization. he was on it before; how polarization divided america and what we can do about it. i urge you to read this. jason altmire here with me. this is playing out again. the inability for the two sides to come together. some for valid reasons. some just for political reasons. nothing gets done. what do you make of it? >> that's right, neil. it's even worse than that because that's not where most americans are. most americans want congress to compromise to accommodate different points of view and to get things done. that's not the type of people they're electing to the congress. unfortunately we have the extremes very well represented in this country. we don't have moderates and people in the middle represented. that's why congress can't get anything done. >> neil: what do you think when
the president reaches across the middle to solve the debt ceiling quagmire and to move on? a lot of republicans felt he abandoned them. democrats said don't do this. to me it was a way to keep moving the ball forward. what do you think? >> that's the only way to get the ball rolling. the congress working together, both parties together with a common goal. you don't have to agree on the issue or the solution. you're never going to accomplish much in the congress if you don't work together. if you eliminate the centrists from the equation, you don't have people in the middle that can broker the deals. that's why congress has been at a stalemate recently. >> neil: some of the most successful presidents have been able to reach across the aisle and not be really ripped apart for it. how would a john kennedy or a ronald reagan, who were very good at that, how would they
fare today as president in this environment? >> in this environment, again, it comes down to the fact that we are electing partisans to the congress. the centrists have been purged from the electoral process. as a result, we have people that are incapable of working together. so even if you have a president that would like to do that, a president that would reach across, you have to get it passed in the house and the senate before it gets to the white house. that's the only way you'll have a productive congress. but unfortunately, we don't have a system designed to allow that to happen. >> neil: there's great talk that if republicans fail at this latest tax attempt, they're finished and they'll lose in the mid-terms. you agree with that? >> districts are grown in a way that greatly advantage the republicans. the landscape in the senate is very favorable to the republicans because of the income of democratic seats up this year in 2018. so it's going to be very difficult for the democrats to take over the house and the senate. i do think that the republicans
are going to go back into their districts and find there's a lot of unhappiness with the fact that congress can't get anything done. the republicans in this case happen to be in control. >> neil: but extremes in both parties, the super conservatives, the liberals and the progressives and the democratic party will crucify you if you try to make olive branch gestures to the other side. they seem to be calling the tune in each party, right? >> on both side. compromise is a dirty word. if you compromised as i did in office as a centrist would do, you're punished for it by your own party. it's greatly discouraged to work with the other side. that's unfortunate. that's not where america is. most americans want congress to work together. >> neil: like you say, we have this big old inbox that is getting bigger and bigger. thanks, jason. "dead center" is the best. i urge you, if you like
politicians or not, this is a definitive treatise of what's gone wrong. if it keeps up, nothing will get done. if you can argue all the philosophy you want. i'm telling you, we keep doing this, we're doomed. have a nice day. we'll be back after this.

not the 19th century. >> neil: all right. former president bush and obama seemed to be taking not so veiled jabs at president trump without mentioning his name. should they have just mentioned his name? shelby holiday, internet radio sensation mike gunelman is here with us. why not just say it? >> if you're going to do it, man up and say it. there's been -- through history, we know that presidents -- former presidents don't go after current presidents. >> it's not like a david lynch film. we knew what they were implying. people knew what they were both like -- you know what i mean? >> i would add that at least for president bush, he was talking more broadly about if protectionist movements --
>> neil: he was talking about president trump. >> and he was saying that young people are losing faith in democracy. >> and he was blaming president trump. >> and in europe. >> so back to the name. call him out. >> neil: i don't agree with that sentiment. the fact of the matter is, just say it. >> they're politicians. they never say what they mean. it's so rich. when president obama and president bush, they all campaign on dividing and conquering, right? just going after their base and not caring about anyone else. as soon as they get out of office, we need to come together. we're better than that. >> cumbaya. >> neil: and by the way, in the obama administration, a lot of division. in the bush administration with the war a lot of division. so this didn't puff up out of nowhere. >> they don't want to be tweet about. >> neil: you might be rush. >> and bush taking about isolationism, that's a recurring theme. and it was in world war i and
