renaissance of american manufacturing. but china has gained competitiveness, share, innovated and raised its efficiency as much as any country ever well. inre are fewer workers chinese manufacturing today than there were 20 years ago. so, success if and when it comes is going to come from various kinds of service work, areas kinds of greater customization. it is a tragedy that on one hand areare saying -- and you right, i understand why you are saying it -- that there may not be enough work to do. there areer hand, several million kids in this who profoundly need individual attention and mentoring of a kind they are not close to getting. we do not have a way of bringing the people who want to work together with those. i do not think it is traditional government that will do it. i also do not think it will be turning the country into some kind of libertarian paradise. >> with that, thank you, larry summers. >> we will be coming back to the ceo council in a moment with congressman paul ryan. personal tweets from members of congress on the iran deal announced last night. kevin mccarthy says

workers. it can go up in january. most of our national competitors, china, india, in india, canada, are lowering the tax rates on their businesses. we are looking at raising our tax rate on these businesses to as high as 45% when the international average is 25%. it is not a payer system. no to businesses are the same with respect to the taxes. ge had a lot of income but no tax liability legally. ups paid i think it 34% tax rate while their competitor paid 44%. but make sure everybody pays the same tax rate based upon the amount of money and income they make whether they are a business or an individual. we think that is fair and better for jobs. with respect to these programs, they are growing at unsustainable rate. poussin's have quadrupled over the last 10 years. -- food stamps have quadrupled over the last 10 years. if we keep the programs on an unsustainable path, they will crash and we will have a debt crisis and not be able to service these people. under a debt crisis, you are cutting indiscriminately across the board in of leeway. you have to cut current people on these programs.

china through their veto of a icc resolution walk a step toward holding accountable a regime that has tortured its own people. representing our nation, i have to confront these vulnerabilities every day. the central point i want to make this committee is that even taking into account these weaknesses, america needs the united nations to address today's global challenges. united states has the most powerful tools in history to advance our interests. we will always lead on the world stage. we are more effective when he ensure others have their share. let me quickly outline for ways we are doing that at the u.n.. first, we are rallying multilateral coalitions to address national threats. consider iran, in addition to addressing sanctions on the government in 2010, obama administrations galvanize the u.n. to organize the toughest regime. this combination of unilateral and multilateral pressure was crucial to bringing iran to the negotiating table and ultimately to help reach a framework that effectively cuts off every pathway for the regime to develop a nuclear weapon. it is not only

. we have to borrow the money from china to do it. [laughter] it's crazy what we do. listen, the third reason is, it would give away half of our revenue in the form of back door spending in the tax code. the plan we put ford, we said, look, let's get rid of all of the tax expenditures. 100% of them. to's use 92% of the money reduce income tax rates and 8% of the money to reduce the deficit. if you do that, you can reduce the deficit by about $100 billion a year for 10 years, so about $1 trillion, and you can take marginal rates to 8%, up to $70,000, 40% of to $210,000, and have a maximum rate of 23%. and you can take the corporate rate to 26% and you can pay for a territorial system so that we can take that up to $2 trillion captured overseas and bring it back to this country to bring -- to create jobs over here. i think that would have real dynamic growth. our tax code is the third reason. and the fourth reason is interest on the dead. i know you guys understand the power of interest. when interest rates go back up and we get downgraded again, it will hit us like something you've neve

simplify but donald trump has simplified it. he said your jobs went to china and i will bring them back. what is interesting is the issue about coal that donald trump has said i'm going to bring back the coal industry and he has but he hasn't been real explicit how. part of it is to remove regulations which is seen to help kill the coal industry but what that would do is make coal more plentyful which would bring the price down which is killing coal now because it has been brought down. so this idea if you get rid of the regulations coal comes back it's not that simple. host: yesterday when donald trump made his announcement we knew ahead of time that he was choosing indiana governor mike pence. he was critical of hillary clinton's support for nafta. however, his running mate mike pence has spoke about the benefits of nafta for his state of indiana. do you think that matters? guest: i don't think so. i think mike pence was more there to reassure ohio's social conservatives and the nation's social conservatives than anything else but you do raise an interesting issue that trade has been

message is right. he is right about china, but hillary has said she wants to crack down on some of china's abuses as well. donald said in a way that resonates with people who are out of work or people working in jobs that are paying them half of what they used to make and it resonates. it is an easy answer, not the right answer, trade is not what destroyed american manufacturing. the bigger factor was technology. ira member going down to the naval shipyard as a kid and there must've been about 100 welders with blowtorches and mallets, today you still have a very good functioning shipyard and you see four welders at a computer operating robotic arms and it has nothing to do with trade. a simple andrs direct message which is easy to understand and which sets off a button of frustration and anger and it is very effective and we would be mistaken if we think that is not a message that resonates with some working-class democrats. host: is he someone you know? guest: i know donald very well and he probably does not believe me when i say i like him as a person. he is charming and he has c

about china and the visit of xi jinping. guest: i was eight -- going on a tour with a colleague, and we went to a couple of companies in new bedford. they were two companies that are in the area where we say we need to go ahead, alternative energy solar energy and how to use it, and both of them volunteered that one of the problems was on subsidized competition from china. the oppression in china is very sad. people have predicted that if the economy opened up and the internet got there, it would be more democracy. sadly, what the chinese are showing is that they can contain that and i am sorry that the chinese continue to be some disrespectful -- so disrespectful. human values, not western values. i guess we have to say this. i think china does need us more than we need them. too often, we're acting like these countries are doing as a favor by letting us to buy all of their goods. china needs us more than we need them and i think we need to be much more tougher with the chinese, saying you have got to stop the subsidy stealing other people's intellectual property. they are no longer

argument, that we have 5,500 miles of the great wall of china, but my position is that we do not need 200,000 miles of wall, we just do that until they start going around the end. >> is this a concrete barrier? or a brief explanation? >> when the president ridiculed the wall, he was 600 feet from the fences and the walls and the most down along the border. i would describe this as a kind of concrete system with the foundational trench, and the concrete panels, and if you build the wall up you have to have routes on either side, with the chain-link fence by the border. we are spending $12 billion -- $6 billion per mile. >> talking about immigration is what we're talking about. president obama -- if you join congress which be supportive of this trend continuing? >> the most important thing is to secure the borders, and do whatever we need to do so that people are not crossing the border illegally, and drugs are not crossing illegally. i think we need to make sure that jobs are going to americans and we need immigration reform. we need to make sure that there is a pathway to citizenship

struggle with china for that position. it looks like they have recently passed us out. we may not always be the reserve currency, that is the issue. if tomorrow we were not the reserve currency, and we cannot print money, albeit irresponsibly as we are, our economy would collapse overnight. in 1929 on wall street would be a walk in the park compared what would happen to us. this is a warning. before horrible things happen usually there is a warning. this is the warning. have -- it apparent is an imperative that we all know what is going on. that way when somebody comes politician, and says free college for everyone -- [laughter] you know how to evaluate that. you know that right now there is nothing free. when you have that kind of debt, there is nothing that is free. we're going to have to start doing things to reverse this. first of all, we have this gigantic, bloated government. i would declare a moratorium on hiring, because we have 4.1 million federal employees. milliont need 4.1 federal employees.

good deals? no. with china, $505 billion trade deficit. they cheat us because they devalue the currency. whenever it gets tough, they devalue. our companies can't compete with that. here's the thing, hillary says about japan, how dare he not say allies? our i will never abandon our allies, ever. how do you negotiate when you tell somebody will never leave them? we may have to leave. japan has problems because you have the maniac in north korea making missiles. south korea, it is an economic behemoth. you can't buy a television that is not made in south korea except for sony which is japan. which has sort of lost its way. whether it is lg or samsung. i ordered thousands of television. you can't buy them in the united states. i would love to. one of the pundits said they do make them. there's a company. and he showed me this little company. all the parts come in from all over the world and they put them together. and they give you a television that doesn't work and nobody ever heard of it. then i put it into a luxury hotel and everyone complains. you can't say to people when you

boost trade, with latin america. and i will finally designate china as a currency manipulator because it is time to trade -- for america. now, third, i want to send to congress the retraining and reform act to make sure every worker has the skills they need for a good-paying job. fourth, i will move to tackle out of control spending. i will send congress the first of several fundamental reforms called the down payment of fiscal sanity act. and in this act, we will not just slow down the rate of government and its spending but i will cut spending. you see, i'm not going to just take office on january 20. i will take responsibility as well. number five, i am going to act to boost small business and all business. i will issue executive orders aimed at the problems that are holding back the economy. in the first of those is going to grant state waivers from obama-care to begin its repeal. and the second is going to launch a review of all of the obama regulations and i will eliminate or repair those that are killing american jobs. and for the first time in four years, every entrepreneur, e

china first bill, which says you do not have to pay troops in the field, you do not have to pay doctors on medicare, but you pay bondholders, including the government of china. what you are saying is to default on any obligation would send a very bad signal. >> yes, congressman. tois very hard for congress know exactly what would happen. it might seem like defaulting on some obligations would be different than defaulting on others, but we do not have a basis for really analyzing that because fortunately we have not had a lot of experience with the government defaulting. but given how much money the federal government owes, to stop paying what is owed is a very risky strategy. >> thank you. i will reclaim the balance of my remaining time. this all inut perspective, and i am not trying to pick a fight here, i am just trying to clarify goals and intentions. if a minority would have been willing to agree to limiting their motions to instruct to two, which was the offer given in the senate, we could have gone to conference. nobody wanted that. >> i have never heard that offer until t

is worth far and money from china to pay for it. right now, a lot of things we're doing we're funding by borrowing money from other people who will demand interest and pay back at some point. for me, this is very important. is this program critical? i will eliminate a lot of programs that i like because of that test. there are programs we need to keep in place but they could be run far more efficiently if they were returned to the states rather than run at the federal level. one of those is medicaid. i would take medicaid dollars plus 1% and say to iowa, you craft your own program. you structure it in the way you think is best. you have to give the states time to organize a program of that nature. making that change in medicaid understate direction saves $100 billion per year for years out. there are 47 different workforce training programs that have been put in place in the federal government. they report to eight different federal agencies. the gao did an evaluation of the programs. they did not find any of them to be affected. these are billions of dollars of training programs. i w

greatest threat to our country is no outside force. it is not china. it is not russia. it is our debt. at face value, that does not seem like much. here is the leader of the strongest military force the world has ever known telling america that the number one threat to its existence is its debt. that is profound for a military leader to say that. the president did not say that. the head of the joint chiefs of staff said that. to me that makes it all the more powerful coming from the source of our defense posture. history has shown time and again that that can bring down republics. as a matter of fact, all republics by. name one that has not. -- all republics die. the question is, can america achieved history? can we cheat history and not fall? let me give you some reminders of what john adams warned. he said democracy never last long. it soon wastes, exhaust, and murders itself. there has never been a democracy that has not committed suicide. we are on the cusp of being the first generation of americans to break a moral bond that has continued in our country since its founding. that m

secretary announced plans to sell to china. a question this week revealed we are still no closer to signing the pigs trotters protocol. if it takes this long to reach an agreement to sell this, what is that say about our other trade deals in the wake of brexit? >> mr. speaker, i am very intent that our agricultural exports continue. i will continue to push pigs trotters as fast as they will go. >> in the house of lords, there are plenty of strongly held opinions about the options for relationships with the rest of the eu. >> in my view, the so-called opportunities of brexit are largely delusional vistas. similarly, we must stop talking nonsense about becoming an offshore singapore or a haven of social dumping, as many on the continent believe the government plans. it is perfectly reasonable, responsible and indeed democratic to consider how sometime in the future, the final decision should be made. another referendum could be needed and justified. >> a former senior diplomat made his maiden speech. >> the mood i find in europe is not one to punish the u.k., but of great sadness. tha

unemployment. it's got a be two-way. and it's going to be. because the trade deficit with china at all of these countries -- but the trade deficit with mexico's massive air and far greater than what we are talking about for the wall. so a lot of politicians say you can't get mexico to pay for the wall. as it is going to be so easy. but here's what you have to understand. were going to have big, beautiful doors and that wall. people are going to come into our country. and people are going to come into our country -- people, lots of people are going to come into our country. that they coming into our country legally. -- but they are coming into our country legally. thank you very much, everybody. we will repeal the obama defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted military. i'm honored to have the endorsement of more than 200 top admirals and generals and 22 medal of honor recipients. hillary and our failed establishment have spent $6 trillion on wars in the middle east that we never win. and now it's in worse shape than ever before. the middle east is in far worse shape than it's ever

behavior, there's going to be a conflict, and the best way to avoid it is for russia and china to get involved and help. on reports that you disagree with the president, what recourse does congress have to stop him? we passed through the foreign relations committee yesterday a resolution to provide arms to the rebels. that is a signal and the right direction. i would argue that six months ago you probably could not get that through. we had a resolution sponsored by senator graham concerning iran. it was pretty tough language. congress is finally waking up and acting in absence of presidential leadership. you will see additional resolution from senator graham probably in the next month or so concerning iran. again, if the iranians are watching, the president of the united states who said if they use chemical weapons they would cross a red line, you would think that the iranians would think that we are serious about their redlines. . i do not think so. i we have an ability, which brought in the past, to bring amendments to address the detainee and interrogation issues. core speedthe adm

back, you want to leave it in china or brazil or germany, you can -- there is no additional tax to leave it there. we have more than $1 trillion overseas. when you talk to the corporate guys who have been trying to get obama for the last 3 1/2 years to go to territoriality or allow repatriation of that money without a big tax hit, some say it is between $500 billion and $800 billion that would come back in the same year. it does not cost anybody anything. we just have to get rid of our worldwide tax system. the reason anheuser-busch was bought by a european company, it is more valuable if it is owned by a european company than an american company because of the way we tax earnings and other countries do not. if we did not fix this, other companies will start being bought more and more by foreign companies. the economics just makes sense. we can fix that by taking our rates down 25%. and by going to a territorial tax system. i think these are extremely important. another challenge that europe has is the defined-benefit government pensions, the social- welfare pensions, the unionized
