8:02 am
active military members like donald trump. the online poll gives him a 19-point lead over hillary clinton in this group. >> hillary clinton just released a list of 95 retired generals and admirals endorsing her. donald trump has a similar list with 88 retired generals and admirals. the candidates gave dueling speeches in battleground states on how to defeat isis. >> i will ask congress to eliminate the sequester and immediately reinvest in our military. >> i will g everything they need when they're serving overseas. i will support them with care and the benefits that they need and deserve when they come back home. >> so we're going to convene my top generals and give them a simple instruction. they will have 30 days to submit to the oval office a plan for soundly and quickly defeating isis. >> i will work closely with our allies, not just to contain isis, but defeat them.
8:03 am
their stronghold in iraq and syria. second we're going to dismantle their global terror infrastructure on the ground and online. third, we're going to bolster our defenses, including with an intelligence surge. >> we're going to build beautiful safe zones in syria and other people are going to pay for it. it's called the opm theory of money. i love that theory, it's called other people's money. >> hillary clinton and donald trump will both be in new york tonight. with the majority of voters having an unfavorable view of hillary clinton and donald trump, some are looking for a different choice. the libertarian party hopes to provide that alternative. its plat storm calls for an end to government debt and no restrictions on personal relationships. the party wants to repeal income tax, abolish the irs and introduce a free market health care system. former governors gary johnson and bill weld are running as the libertarian party's president and vice presidential candidates.
8:04 am
welcome. >> hey, thank you. >> thanks very much. >> great to have you guys here. governor johnson, let me start with you. you said it would be game over if you don't get into the presidential debates. you haven't yet reached the 15% polling threshold in order to do that. what are you doing to change that with the debate less than 20 days away? >> well, it isn't game over if we're not in the first debate. if we're not in the debates it is game over. there's no way that you can win the presidential race without being in the debates. but of the press is just reporting the top line on these polls, and if you dig down, about half these polls are including our name in this, and right now, yesterday, "washington post," we're at, in 15 states we're over 15%. in six states we're over 19%. in 40 states we're over 10%, so we continue to ratchet up. will it be enough to reach that first debate? we'll have to see.
8:05 am
you can win the presidency. do you realistically expect you can win the presidency or will in the end the role you play as a spoiler for one candidate or the other? >> if we're in the presidential debates, 100% of people will know who we are and we think we have the chance to run the table. >> run the table? >> yes. >> the reason we think that, we think we have winning arguments. we're fiscally responsible, socially inclusive. that doesn't describe either of the other parties. no one would accuse the democrats of being fiscally responsible when it comes to the budget if they get in and the republicans made their platform even meaner than it was before their convention to be exclusionary towards certain groups so we think we got a six-lane highway right up the middle and that represents the thinking of about 60% of the voters. >> by definition, governor weld, have you left the republican party? >> yes, i have and i told the libertarians i would never return. doesn't mean i'm not friendly but i get to ask out loud why would any republican vote for donald trump?
8:06 am
entitlemnts, terrible on the budget, he's unreliable. >> one of the things i hope we can drill down on the issues let's first start with imfwra immigrat immigration. not only would you not build the wall you would allow more imfwrags immigration in this country. >> to get a work visa, entail a background check and social security card so that taxes get paid. there's a reason why there are 1 million undocumented workers in this country, it's impossible to get across >> so allow more people into the united states? >> it's a labor force issue. no one knows berter than gary johnson as a southwest border governor. mr. trump planted this cunard in the public consciousness all 11 million undocumented workers are chomping at the bit to become citizens. that's not true. >> when you say invite people to come in, a legal entry into the you state. >> legal, yes. >> the big debate it seems to be is what happens to the people who are here now.
8:07 am
illegally. >> so set up an easy way for those to come into the door and get a work visa, as long as they've been law abiding. >> your point, dwmpb, governor, grant them citizenship. >> get them a work visa, subject them to a background check, get them a social security card so they can pay taxes. get them in the system and out of the shadows. that's what's so unhealthy. >> talk about the taxes because you said you irs which got a lot of people's attention, rightfully so and you said you wanted to replace it with the federal consumption tangs. how does that work? >> first of all, count on the two of us with regard to consistency, so consistency you can count on us to support any initiative out of congress that's going to lower taxes, that's going to simplify taxes. if i could wave a magic wand, i would eliminate income tax, i
8:08 am
and replace it with one federal consumption tax. >> you know the argument against consumption tax it is not fair. >> it's regressive and the way that the fair tax deals with it being refwrgressive it issues everyone in the country a prebate check of $200 a month allowing everyone to pay the consumption tax up to the point of the poverty level. >> one last question about a libertarian. defined to me as people who did not, the least government possible and high respect for individual liberties. that was the definition of libertarian. ronald reagan said the problem government is not the solution, government is the problem. is government the problem? >> well i think that government is best which governs least. i think that is our credo and the man who said that originally was thomas jefferson. we're just a pair of jefferson son liberals if you pardon the world. >> hamiltonon, sir. >> keep government out of the bedroom and government out of my
8:09 am
people. >> still enjoying this process? >> this is my briar patch. i'm grateful to gary for getting me in this. >> there is an honest man right there. loves the game. >> that's the pitch we're trying to make here also is, you know, we're not hypocrites, so we don't say one thing and do another. >> gary johnson and bill weld great to have you. >> thank you all very much. >> they helped america win the space race but didn't share the glory. >> it's not a first or an only story. it's the story of a women who were given a chance and who performed and who opened doors for the women who came behind them. >> ahead the story of women who played a crucial role in the early days of the space program, but first, it is 8:09, could be seeing multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms through the day today. we'll likely have a break during the late-morning hours but then another round will move on through mainly after 1:00, some
