6:07 am
from the first one, i don't think you see a lot of difference in terms of people's reactive. you are against the first-order and second-order. that will not change the dynamic. the question is a more defensible in court and looks like the answer will be yes it is for that according to what we are seeing here. dagen: donald trump has completed its first month in office. he has doubled down on his commitment to keeping jobs in the united states. >> jobs is one of the primary reasons i'm standing here today as your president and i will never, ever disappoint you. believe me. i will not disappoint you.

6:10 am
trump talking about the media. he used the word dictator. he had some very harsh words for president trump oversees over the weekend and lindsey graham is another senator. is that going to complicate his agenda? >> this honeymoon period has been somewhat erratic. it has not been a straight line. as an american, we are hopeful we have a very, very strong year for the president. that being said, him getting his stuff passing congress will be incredibly difficult. true to what is the most typical use it? >> are hidden, immigration reform and tax reform. there will be tax cuts. getting comprehensive tax reform done will be very difficult, especially if he's going to include military spending, infrastructure planned and not touch the social net of medicare, medicaid and social security. at some point, the hawks on the right will say no way. i think there's going to be --
6:11 am

6:21 am
6:22 am
dagen: retailer and dagen: retailer and the bulk of this morning. home depot beating estimates for earnings per share in revenue in the most recent quarter. take a look at how the stock is performing in premarket trading. awaiting results from macy's and wal-mart. are you acting overall?
6:23 am
>> continuing to seek to press results. everything here is reaction to what is going on at amazon. so much online sales growth, so everybody's looking at macy's saying can they adapt to this? look in a wal-mart and paid how are they adapting? wal-mart has made a huge investment which is depressed or to set them up or stronger sales growth in the future. everybody looking at how these two firms adapt to online sales at home depot beating expectations, they've been strong in this space. spending is strong. sales on expanding retail footprint. they want more sales at existing stores and push more on their online channel. trade to the overall retail sales came in better than expected. in december, and they were higher. it looks that people's optimism is translating into more purchase. >> there's two stories at the
6:24 am
consumer optimism is a good story. you see that in results or the other is how different retailers was onto that. can they capture optimism? amazon continues to dominate the space. companies like macy's have a hard time saying should macy's be setting up retail? should this be a real estate play? >> the trump dump is what we call it. i really want to give proper at stake on an issue for all of the top retailers in particular. congress comes back next week. speaker paul ryan having trouble selling on capitol hill as they shove into the tax reform ideas. retailers hated. >> this will not pass because spirit of 70% plus and when you start taxing imports more like a sales tax, it gets passed to the consumer. this would not be good for our country.
6:25 am
they are trying to do it because it lowers the deficit. but this is not a good plan. retailers are screaming and the suggest now part. >> yesterday on the programs that if you put a border adjustment tax in place, gas prices will go up automatically. he said politically, how do you spell that? >> will impact purchasing power immediately. it just will. dagen: why would republicans come up with something? they are advocates to this idea. again, so politically toxic. >> well, two reasons. if it actually has a worse development would be a stray border top in a country like mexico. this could be preferable to that number one. number two, you need the revenue. this is a trillion dollars revenue. that allows you to do tax reform, not just taxpayers. that doesn't mean it's a good idea. clear reasons why they look for
6:26 am
the revenue. >> just a comment. one starts talking about the border attacks of mexico. that can actually get passed. if we did that with mexico, we have to do china. a huge trade war. that is not happening. that would have to actually pass wto and congress. this was an alternative. this isn't happening is that they need to find a different tax reform, which is why ifthey do get tax cuts. you won't get tax reform. dagen: what i find a little astonishing is this border attacks idea by paul ryan and kevin brady. they didn't have other republicans on board. talk to any republican congressman who has their constituents are major retailers comment very worried about this. what were they doing the last almost eight years selling this to other republican congressmen? did they not think that donald
6:27 am
trump would get elected to the presidency and they didn't think they'd have to do with tax reform? >> for people in congress is all about getting reelected. i want to talk about macy's. will close an on hundred stores in 30,000 jobs. velocity in buyout talks. i am wondering, what is that due from macy's? how will that help but that help out of this long-term plan? >> thing is worth about twice as much if you get rid of the retail operations. $21 billion potentially compared to a market cap of $5 billion. they looking at that saying this is a better play than a retail play. said the retail assets to someone who can create scale and work on a property portfolio. >> not to go down a different path but that was a plan. they are all in the same boat trying to survive in the world not ready to play. would you do?

6:34 am
>> mr. president, thank you very much. i am grateful to you for that opportunity and i look forward to joining the national security team and doing everything i can to advance and protect the interest of the american people. dagen: joining us right now former navy seal and former foreign policy adviser to president obama's 2008 campaign and state department official, david, you worked with lieutenant general mcmaster in the past, how do you see him as a pick? >> this is an excellent pick. i had an opportunity to work with him when i was posted in baghdad, joint campaign plan for iraq, he's a very clever general and very experienced, has lots of on the ground experience in counterinsurgancey and demonstrated qualities when i had the chance to observe him in baghdad. most importantly, he brings real
6:35 am
on the ground experience from iraq and afghanistan fighting insurgence. that's something we have not had. he brings the experience into the white house to what i think is the number one priority of this administration and what the number one priority should be which is to defeat isis. it's very interesting, general mcmaster served in a hot bed of insurge antsy in iraq. it's probably going to be the last stand of isis in iraq. we have a guy who know it is territory very well and can help design the plan to ultimately defeat isis in iraq and push then out of bhir eak, i applaud this point. dagen: it was his method that prevented u.s. defeat in that country. he is an independent banker. people forget about the surge strategy that it was dismissed by many.
6:36 am
many people didn't believed in it and it worked, what does this kind of independence thinking do as national security? this guy is outside the box thinker. to a lot of people who served with him, he made general because of abraciveness of going against policy which is donald trump needs. he needs someone who is loyal, patriot, american-free loving person but also somebody who needs to say, no, hold on, that's not the right thing to do and you need to listen to me. dagen: david, also adapt being a foreign policy strategist if you will, and you do have high-level officials, general mattis as defense secretary and also army general john kelly at homeland security and with mcmaster now,
6:37 am
how do you read the kind of heavy military presence within the administration? >> well, i think this addition is a very positive one. i don't have any consideration about the heavy military presence within the administration. the one knock on general mcmaster is he doesn't have experience in washington but perhaps that's an asset as well. my biggest worry with general mcmasters he's going to bring creativity and good ideas and leadership to the white house, my biggest worry is whether administration officials in the white house specially some of the civilians like a steven miller, like a steve bannon, whether they are going to listen to him or whether they are going to override him. let's wait and see what happens with that. dagen: you actually have heard defense secretary mattis come out in opposition to things that donald trump has said n. recent days secretary mattis differed from issues suggesting tougher stance on russia, he talked
6:38 am
about not taking the oil from iraq. donald trump we heard him say that or at least allude to it as recently as january 21st after inauguration, even after secretary mattis' position on torture is different than what trump has said and trump has said i differ to secretary mattis. >> yeah, and what's important -- one of the guys pete hegseth wrote a piece about it, in the arena. they are more poised to make decisions, from an educative perspective and understand the enemy. the important thing here is with the increase military presence in the white house, in the political sphere here we are a goal-oriented group of folks, we see a goal and find out how to do it and execute. we don't bumble around as the typical washington bureaucrats. i don't know if they're ready for it but we are coming.
6:39 am
dagen: david, one other issues these leader within the administration are going to have to tackle with and you alluded to it, the troop levels in afghanistan, roughly 6,000 u.s. troops that are still in iraq and what to do with those. that was one of the reasons that secretary mattis paid that visit to iraq. >> yeah, i think you'll see, you know, some of these new appointee to push lasting presence both in iraq and afghanistan. i think it's a valid criticism of the previous administration that we didn't keep enough troops on the ground in iraq to protect against the threat of islamic -- radical islam that arose in 2014 with isis coming over from syria. they have big problems to tackle in the region. syria is a big problem, we need to have a lasting presence, we need to have a lasting presence in baghdad and in the north in the region who would welcome lasting military presence and look at afghanistan, we are going to have troops there for a
6:40 am
long time as well. dagen: carl, i want to get your reaction, federal authorities are investigating spike in opioid theft at four va hospitals, the number of missing prescription drugs have jumped, doctors and nurse stiffened inventory for own use or even sold drugs on the street, what can be done to fix the problem and the overall -- it's just tram attic what has happened to our veterans in terms of them becoming addicted to opioids in. >> this is a perpetual ongoing problem of a culture of unaccountability. people in the va think they can take whatever they want and this is just one more example of that. you have veterans coming back and being overmedicated and there's one company called ags health which is coming -- male
6:41 am
veterans, free test if they're overmedicated and that's what's happening, they can stop the stuff dead in the track, 100 to 0, this is something that he could do day one to stop the overmedication. dagen: one thing we are going to hear about later in the show the company work to go alternative to opioid-based medication or painkiller because, again, this is an epidemic not just in this country but particularly among our veterans. that's the travesty in all of the men and women who have served us to mightily and this is what happens, this is the kind of care they get. carl, thanks to see you. david, great inside, we will see you soon. security breach at jfk airport when 11 people got through tsa airport with no screening, the latest ahead. shares falling after posting much lower than expected four-year earnings, that report next.

7:01 am
dagen: one of his stops yesterday it was an american flag that was making headlines. why? it had 51 stars on it. we have more on that story coming up. russia's embassador to the united nations dying suddenly. the details surrounding his death including the cause still unknown. samsung reportedly putting the galaxy note 7 on the market. it's going to refurbish the devices an sell them in a merging market. home depot said to be a winner on wall street. retail expecting to report better than results. 70-point gain in dow industrials. it's been a great start to the year so far and in europe, markets are a little changed. the ftse 100 in england is still down ever slightly. we have gains in france and germany. in asia overnight. we had a little bit of mixed action but only loser there was

7:03 am
that donald trump has a better handicap at golf than president trump does, there you go. >> they put in their own golf scores, so i will leave it at that. dagen: you can take a look at how wal-mart is doing. it came in at 1.30 a share versus 1.29 estimate. sales are going to be rit call there in terms of we are also going to be looking at the online sales, how much growth that you saw in online, again, wal-mart is going straight head to head with amazon in terms of offering free shipping trying to get people on board. they changed the way that they're purchasing their goods too. did you know that wal-mart -- they used to purchase separately for online and for the brick and mortar stores and now they have combined purchasing. when i read that i thought that
7:04 am
was odd that they didn't do that already. revenue did miss expectations, came in shy of $131 billion for the most recent quarter. it was expected to be north of 131 billion. we will watch the stock in premarket trading just to see how it acts. we will get you more details on that. almost up 2% in premarket trading. he tweeted yesterday, give the public a break, the fake news media is trying to say that large scale immigration in sweden is working out just beautifully, not, all caps e -- esm take a listen. >> you can app that the president and all of us will continue to call out the media
7:05 am
when they play fast and loose with the facts. dagen: joining us right now national review editor rich lowery, what do you make of the war with the media and the media is just outraged. >> well, the media has been freaked out and basically waging a war on trump since last august and there was brief interruption and we should be more fair and immediately snapped right back. i don't like the enemy of the people line. but this is a raw tribal war between the administration and the press. >> you know, what i would say watch chris wallace's interview with reince priebus which i thought was outstanding. i put the entire interview on my twitter, one thing that he really said, you don't get to tell us what to do and we want
7:06 am
to make sure that the media has freedom of press and the president should get hit on sweden comments when they were inaccurate. dagen: all he said, did you see what happened in sweden last night. >> come on. [laughter] >> his audience was probably watching fox news and that's a pretty good expectation, his audience does -- >> nothing happened in sweden. increasing crimes which we have seen in other -- [laughter] >> let's be factual here. he said last night. a lot of people thought he was responding -- dagen: again, this is what we focus on. i said repeatedly, when he
7:07 am
basically took -- when he beat up the entire press corp last thursday, when did it happened, it happened after flynn stepped down, increasing reports about there's disarray in the administration, what does he do, he turns it back on the press, the press loves to bitch and moan about their treatment by donald trump so he turned the entire news cycle on its head and had the press writing about the press. >> the whole four-week period, there's been new controversy basically every six hours. they can be the remember anything. when was gorsuch. that feels ages ago. flynn, i almost forgot the guy's name. you're right, trump is in constant controversy and contention. now, there's a downside to the strategy, he needs to kind of reassure fence setters about him and it's not clear that he's doing that and probably results will matter more. events and what actually happens on capitol hill will matter more
7:08 am
for how we regard the first year than anything else. dagen: i want to get to this, former attorney general under george w. bush wrote an op-ed yesterday. democracy can't function without secrecy in he says, quote, the choice to discloses matters that public officials have determined should remain secret is often a singularly antidemocratic act, public officials are elected or appointed by those elected to pursue policies for which they answer to the voters at large. those who discloses national secrets assert a right to override the democratic outcomes. do you think the media is wrong to support the leaks of this national security information? >> yeah. dagen: this goes back to pentagon papers. >> it's sort of built in. the press can report the stuff. the scandal is that people that have taken the oath to protect the material will leak it and the problem is you don't know whether they're being complete, the flynn matter, you talk to people around flynn, it was a misunderstanding, it was a
7:09 am
relatively small part of conversation, the sanctions portion and then you read in the newspaper, no, it was much more explicit and being deceptive. we don't know because we haven't seen it. this is a case -- since we all know the transcripts exist now, let's see them. >> ic you can't pin it on the press when things are leaked. when someone wants to leak from the inside they are going to get it to someone and it's a matter of which press reports it. it's holding accountable the people that promise today serve our country and when you have someone like chelsea manage i think who leaks 3 quarters of million documents and violated the espionage act and her has sentenced commute today seven years from 35 years, that promotes these leaks and it allows people to think that when they make promises to protect our secrets that they're going to get away with it if they leak them. >> right. it makes it seem totally conditional that promise and not something we really take
7:10 am
seriously, you're absolutely right. dagen: is this going to be the relationship between president trump and the media in terms of -- it's name calling but people accused president trump of calling people names, the enemy of the state but you have senator john mccain turns around. not only lambastes him overseas about his stance on immigration, not in name but in message and turns around and refers indirectly to his behavior as being like a dictator. again, it goes both ways. people who are his opponents are critical of him. they go after him with the same vim and vigor and name calling. >> what happens is opponents thinking he's violating certain norms and he is. they violate certain norms, head count for electoral college coup, all the leaks who are illegal and wrong and i think the trump administration's relationship will continue to be this contentious with the media and bureaucracy.
7:11 am
the one thing he wants to avoid and mccain gets to this, having a contentious relationship with capitol hill republicans. that happens, then you get a meltdown of the republican agenda. dagen: is that already in the making? >> no, not necessarily. you can't necessarily judge by mccain where the median republican on capitol hill is all whom want to make this thing work, all who want to pass obamacare, want to pass tax reform, that needs presidential leadership. so first -- dagen: not pass obamacare, but get rid of it and pass something else. robert, you want to say something before we go? >> i agree with rich, i think at the end of the day, you to find the balance of making sure that you don't turn off the press and i equally agree, we should not have the leaks, okay, it goes back to the campaign when then candidate trump says i like the leaks, okay, when it was wikileaks, i think you can't have it both ways, all of the foreign intelligence as lea said
7:12 am
should stay within foreign intelligence and should make public when it's supposed to be made public. >> did i just endorse obamacare on air? [laughter] >> you're sitting to the left of me. [laughter] dagen: it's his cologne. keep your distance. >> i'm telling you. usually no one sits to the left of me. dagen: smartphones could be costing you more on the road, why car insurance rates are rising because stop looking at your phone, be a better driver and favorite breakfast being turn today pop-up barn in new york city, a sweet treat straight ahead

dagen: this 1999, the amount of prescription opioids sold quadruple. according to cdc there's been little change of the amount of pain americans report. pharmaceutical company is work to go commercialize nonopioid pain therapy starting with tackling the issue of arthritis in the snee. your lead product, it's been accepted and in the approval process. >> correct.
7:22 am
dagen: in front of fda, what does it do and the thinking behind creating this drug? >> yeah, i appreciate the question and thanks for having me. just to frame the problem to again with, very common in the united states. over 30 million patients suffer from this disease. it's progressive and doesn't have a key and once you're diagnosed with arthritis50% of replacing. 50% of patients with arthritis are prescribed opioids in the united states. what we are doing is developing a steriod, cortozone and that's commonly injected into the knee
7:23 am
joint but none are formulated for sustain release. you inject in the knee and flow out rapidly and pretty good pain relief tend to wane over weeks. so what we have developed a sustained release formulation of the steroid that once injected lasting in the joint for at least 3 months at concentrations and clinical trail data that shows pain relief over time. >> i had my acl done twice, my left knee, the last one i had a tendon done. i take nothing. i can only imagine the people that have the osteoarthritis. i can tell you what the weather is going to be. if you need a clinical study, i'm your guy. i will just tell you that, you
7:24 am
know, knees are going left and right it feels like. >> very common problem. we are hoping -- dagen: nonaddictive. >> it's so important. what it's so gratifying for us is the opportunity to deliver a medicine that matters to patients in need and who can't get them soon enough. this in severest form results in patients being unable to do the activities of daily living. it can be a miserable existence. dagen: you're in the approval process. new administration, new president, do you have any sense that the approval process might be quicker? do you get those indications when you're dealing with the fda. >> we don't have that indication per se. what we have a decision date that's been given to us of october 6th, we are highly confident that that timeline will be adhered to and whether it happens sooner than that, i
7:25 am
think it would be pure speculation at this opinion. dagen: big question, cost, how much would it cost? >> it's a great question. we have consistently guided in a price of $500 per injection which based on the data and the safety data that we have we think represents very good value for that treatment. >> so will that be covered under normal medical -- >> absolutely. we have done multiple rounds of pair and we are highly confident that this will be covered without a problem. >> doctor, that's a particular application to the knee, do you see other applications in the future, same kind of device or -- >> yeah. those are great questions. absolutely. we have the potential for what we call label expansion, meaning doing clinical study that is would evaluate it in shoulder and evaluate in hip, for example, common areas and it turns out that steroids are
7:26 am
injected in ten million patients a year for conditions outside particularly in the shoulder, things like frozen shoulder, adhesive, very common conditions, we are certainly not going to suggest that this will work in those conditions in the absence of data we need to generate the data but since steroids are so commonly used there and they don't stay in those joints, we have reason to believe that this could work in those conditions. dagen: just really quickly, lea, before you get to the question. we always talk about the daughterover opioid, they pose a danger to children that we should point out with 32% of parents report storing in a locked location. they do pose a danger because people leave them out in the open. lea -- >> that's what i was going to get to the opioid addiction issue. a lot of people develop
7:27 am
long-term pain because they had some form of a surgery. how soon would this drug be able to used post surgery or post injury before the injury develops and hopefully before people develop an opioid addiction from having those medications prescribed again and again? >> it's a good question. just to be clear, our initial indication of this product will be per patients who have already developed osteoarthritis. we are hopeful that this represents addition and potentially means that some patients wouldn't necessarily have to be prescribed opioids. i think, lea, you are talking about something different, what do you do in immediate post-op period and that's something in front of us in terms of considering how best to evaluate the product. >> that's when a lot of people develop opioid addictions is when they've had pain, they get put on the pill and never get off. >> i love the idea because like
7:28 am
you said, with cortozone or draining the knee, you can only go a few times a year. dagen: you're all busted up. i'm going to stop you. your shoulder, your knee.

this every talked about what could be construed religious test men and women people very concerned about violent criminals in this country or people maybe suspected terrorists would come into this country us do harm, a national security issue, however we have could be careful this is you know, to remember what america is about america is a country of immigrants, and that i think is has been the big difficulty that president trump has had. because the tone of his immigration orders, has been to in eyes of some people challenge underlying be what america is about. >> i do want to point out though on that very thing, now we're waiting for revised travel order to come out. but the new version that some in the media have seen appears to address that criticism. about it being a religious test or religious ban, amounting to religious
8:08 am
discrimination would be unconst eliminating at the preferences for religious minorities that was included in the original order legally psychologically the administration is sensitive to that. >> that is important, here is the here is the difficulty they have. the first rollout was he handled in a way that wasn't very good the second one is going to be framed based on the first one, you know, this is really a matter of framing the issue and reframe people are going to say is this more the same? the courts will determine that. but i think that -- you know -- i don't think anybody argues with the need to deal with violent criminals here illegally or suspected terrorists there is a lot of argument about pinning all immigrants with same brush also puttinging into deportation people really caught up in a bureaucracy we got to be careful how this is handled.
8:09 am

8:10 am
>> that is an interesting question there are some people overstayed their time permitted, they aretically in violation, but not violent criminals some are in application, trying to get their stay extended. they haven't been approved, you know, they are in a gray area so what i am suggesting is that while we need to pay attention to national security issues here, we also have to be very careful that we're not pinning all immigrants with the same brush. >> congressman it is robert how are you? nice to see you. just a pick to question. with respect to seven countries, that go through pretty intense vetting already, i think homeland security has said that it takes 18 to 24 months, for these countries if they don't have visa green cards waivers, how is it that much dust than what is already happening? >> it is not that much different except there is renewed emphasis, on it. as i said at the beginning of
8:11 am
this interview, there is a process and the process can be very lengthy working its way out, the big -- concern that americans have is that in our desire to be able to protect our borders, that we do not cause undue criticism to people might have an immigrant status, and you have to remember where mesh came from a balance issue here, there is a policy issue has to be dealt with there is balance issue who are we as nation? are we continuing to welcome people give us your tired free public masses are we saying that is it we're not taking anyone else? we have to be careful the signal we send to millions of immigrants in this country contributing to america helping build tech industries repleni isish he educations you institutions deal with issues president trump identified as national security matters. dagen: great to see you

they are getting earful from constituents some republicans finding themselves with angry protests packing town hall meetings joining us from home district florida congressman ron de santis what are you hearing from constituents a lot are democrats that agitators encouraged to fuss at you folks. >> good morning i think that is right, there are definitely people who are liberal democrats who are very upset that donald trump is president. i think that a lot of people in the democratically party if i had a tough time coming to terms with election making their voices known, fine, but i will tell you, in my district, i have a lot of people who are happy with the president, because he is basically doing what he promised voters that he would do, and my what i found in politics, is when you run for office, you say what you are going to do if you get in just do what you said you are going to do dental break your
8:34 am
promises even voters that don't necessarily agree with you own every issue they do appreciate that you are following through with what you said would you do. >> there are a couple of things that all of you need to get on the stick about though in terms of promises. can we talk about what you are doing about tax reform what you are doing about repealing on care figuring out a placement that will fly. >> two things one budget process is already in place to do repeal of obamacare so i think that will happen, when we return in march, and then the replacement people say o they don't have a plan we have half dozen plans, that have been put forward, and if you look at all those plans, i would say about 75% of those plans have a lot of commonality so there is broad agreement on some. l of the reform need to take place other areas you iron out that is what putting a legislative process together is about you run a bill
8:35 am
through committee offer amendments on floor put it through, own tax reform a lot of good things republicans in house are doing board adjustment tax is going to be major sticking point in the senate but increasingly i think in the house the question is doing the border adjustment effectively 20% tax on imports, is that going to outweigh some other good that is in the tax reform, and there is more and more people on the conservative said say that is the case. >> congressman what ways the path forward with border adjustment tax some say if not in bill you probably have to sunset this because of deficit concerns if in the bill you can go something bigger in terms of he reform you might hurt customers hard to see where republicans go from here where do you think the path forward lies. >> i think important with border adjustment yes consumers pay more at walmart effectively a tax increase on them but also important, that
8:36 am
towns it will harm some of our small yemeni sized manufactures that use foreign component parts all those parts that go into their product will no longer be deductible at all a higher tax bill as a result you do not want to do anything that is going to damage the economy so i think there is debate in the house about what it will do the thing is we don't really know what it will do, i mean you can bring an economist in say one thing another economist can say something else, but it is kind of unchattered territory i think a lot of us myself included have a little bit of an hennhenn in you don't worry about budget neutrality people say will increase deficit we said he would want less government almost if you do tax reform tax cuts you are going to get higher deficits meaning government spending on auto pilot i don't think that needs to be the case. >> so congressman when you look at the deficit side, the
8:37 am
president wants to do a tax cut, the idea of tax reform difficult wants to increase military funding wants to do infrastructure plan, wants to keep socially net of social security medicaid medicare build a wall hiring another 15,000 homeland security give me idea how you think policy is getting through where deficits don't balloon? >> well, i think the infrastructure is somewhat of a different beast they assumed they could get a tlost a democrat support for that especially if big spending bill i think if you are seeing democratic voters are telling guys oppose trump originally i don't know that you should -- >> my question is with you how do you see policy okay, when you have tax cuts in increased spending and you were saying you are concerned about the deficit how do you. >> that circle i see trillions of dollars coming through on deficits if that plan continues as is.
8:38 am
>> well, we can do reductions nonmilitary domestic spending we can do things like welfare he reform requiring work requirements for able bodied recipients different budgets put forward with house republicans have shown ways to save money on that end. you do need more military spending but i would say even within that, there is going to be an effort in the congress you have seen the president himself try to call out some of the bad spending that happens in the pentagon bureaucracy and some overruns you may have a net increase in disinformation but if you can root out some of the waste that will help the fight a great deal at the end of the day, the money is not spent unless congress appropriates it we have opportunity to prune back in areas that we don't necessarily think are useful. >> congressman one of your democratic colleagues will be in washington today, in d.c. filing a lawsuit over the removal of the controversial painting from capitol hill that depicts police officers
8:39 am
as pigs your reaction to that. >> i think it is a forgive allows suit rules of the house are very clear nobody has a right to put art in this hallway it is a program, that is established by the congress, there are certain guidelines, and i just don't think, in the house of our national legislature, that we want to be advertising treating law enforcement as pigs, it is as grow tefk people are tree to do it do it on your dime you don't have right to have congress hang it for. >> is this o symbolic of the dwidz between two political parties different political persuasions this is what you are fighting over? >> well, i think that -- it may be emblematic in washington get outside washington what percentage americans would think acceptable there maybe some for sure i think the we overwhelming majority of the american people would look at that i think that they would
8:40 am
say that that is a grotesque painting should not be in the national capitol. >> want to go back on affordable care act the idea you think we could replace it what would you replace it with to have 20 million people who are currently what would you do with medicaid expansion, that is obviously critically important especially for preventative care? >> well, sir, i think this idea of replace i don't want our own 2000-page bill congress cannot solve all problems with one massive bill the repeal should then be -- followed with he reform some of the reforms you have to do, evolve protect health savings accounts allowing people apply insurance they want without government, refreshereding their plans illegal that includes across state lines, some of the medicaid expansion would have happened anyway, people who were eligible for medicaid regardless of obamacare, then i think it is
