6:01 am
launch drone strikes. bill ackman sold his entire stake for at least a $2.8 million loss. will tell you all about that. filings showed that verizon suggested killing the deal as a result of that breach. bullet -- marissa mayer's the same documents showing that the outgoing ceo will get a $23 million severance payout. markets look like this this morning. they are expected to be done about 20 points us money. they're also negative. we have the ft 100 higher. down a fraction. numbers look like this. the narc -- markets were very close to the flat line.
6:02 am
nothing that was so stunning except the korea index. a billion-dollar issue a deal that is what lots of ball. join me to talk all about it the global economics editor. in the kings college professor. good to see you. thank you for getting in today. a snowy day. that's good. in your assessment of that report. >> yet to be careful putting too much -- weight on these things they overestimated how may people many people were going to get insurance. the puts him in an uncomfortable position. conservatives are already we now had moderates in the party. saying we can't lose all of
6:03 am
this insurance. it is the cbo and the snowstorm. it is supposed to get worse this morning but we have the morning storm covered for you. jackie keane is with us. former health and human services secretary under verse. kevin mccarthy is joining us live from washington a lot to cover with him. just stay with us. we kick it off with that storm. cheryl with all of the details it now. now. it is going to be expensive and it could be deadly as well. this is already looking to be a brutal life-threatening storm.
6:04 am
the connecticut and rhode island. the storm could bring up to 3 feet of snow. along with the new jersey governor chris christie. all drivers there to see off of the road. in addition authorities are wanting millions of residents to prepare for widespread power outages and road closures. airports had now canceled 6,000 flights today. it is can be passing through all day today and then in washington president trump he have to meet with local authorities of the capital yesterday to discuss what they're doing. about incoming winter storm prep. everybody be safe.
6:05 am
so this is all ahead of what could be the first natural disaster under president trump's administration. the department of homeland security recommending a basic disaster kit. among recommended items. three days of drinking water food and a cell phone charger. and have a kit costing about $130 and were also can look at the markets today as they get a freeze over. it's on track at this point. home depot, lowes and likely to move more today. and then you want to keep an eye out for plow makers as well. lessing here in this area all of the reporters of lowes and home depotleared out those stores. everybody was getting prepared for today. the budget office has released its report on the gop replacement plan for obama
6:06 am
care. they found that the legislation would increase the number of people without health insurance by a 14 million next year. and then it by the year 202,624,000,000 americans would be uninsured they also found that it would cut the federal deficit by $337 million in the next decade. donald trump helped secretary donald price all waiting on that scoring watch. >> when i can have a one-size-fits-all. instead we are going to be an leasing the power of the marketplace. in competing for your business and you will see rates go down and down. we disagree strenuously with what was put out. we believe that our planet will cover more individuals at a lower cost and give given the choices that they want what they're telling is it's in the lower premium. it stabilizes the market.
6:07 am
it is a $1.2 trillion spending cut. it is a spending cut. you wonder if it makes it more difficult for them to unite around this plan. i think it does. you arty had conservatives on one side who believes that this plan does not go far enough in undoing obama care and that is when you will have moderates in the senate who are going to be hearing from people in their constituencies insane we don't want to lose all of these coverage for these people. you have a class building between moderates and conservatives in the party. some people lose coverage because they choose to do so. that's not really coming out in much of the reporting. it's about a choice. they are taking away these mandates so they're saying you don't have to buy this government mandated care and people are gonna choose not to buy it. it is good to be mostly young people who are making that choice and you really need young people that seem mandate
6:08 am
i'm not people -- not making people full-time. this is really a double edge sword when you're thinking about it. you had 14 million people who can make decisions you even if premiums come down for folks. my premiums have gone up a ton. we want that to come down. i believe that we have lost the objective was to drain the swamp. it's a make healthcare affordable to get the economy
6:09 am
going again. and what they head in front of them right now. is a strong messaging problem. it is estimated at a net deficit reduction of $337 million. that is part of the good news here. you heard a speaker ryan talk about that. it improves the likelihood that they can get something done without democratic votes i it's also important to supply out the cbo cannot model innovation. and doesn't model changes in the marketplace that might lead to more people buying insurance and that's exactly what this plan is meant to do. conservatives say is not going far enough. that doesn't have to meet government requirements. that's why they tend to overstay that.
6:10 am
what in this plan is really changing people's incentives. you are so gonna go had them getting subsidies. that has been pulled back. they could do administratively. the healthcare accounts not to overspend on the healthcare. >> it does put it back on that person. detaching the tax credits from the mandates from the government to buy certain coverages could open up possibilities because there are gonna say we are offering new coverages here may be not as extensive as the once you
6:11 am
get under the exchanges but they might fit your life situation better. >> there's also this idea that there would allow insurers to sell coverage across state lines which is not in the house plan. it could change some of the dynamics of the marketplace. maria: that was really important in making sure to be able to sell across state lines. the mac that really changes the whole ballgame. in certain states of today there is one provider. there is not competition in these exchanges. the problem here is they can't escort the phase two and phase three things that they had mentioned. that's part of the number that were seen here. demonstration is promising this is the first of a couple of different phases of healthcare reform. the in ministration can't and that's what we can sell. we do have the majority leader here. maria: calling it quits bill

6:22 am
quarter of a point tomorrow. the equity strategist. it's got it's good to see you. thank you so much for joining us. yesterday we have a little bit of snow. a couple of inches. and flurries out there right now. i was really hoping for the end of winter. what he think about that. i are you expected an interest rate increase. and does it change the tenor of this market. i would've told you two months ago that the fed was not going to hike in march. they are gonna raise on wednesday. they will announce tomorrow that the rates aren't hiked. it has been for two hikes this year. now, two and three hikes you see one in march maybe they do september or december.
6:23 am
i think the market hasn't has fully price. and what's important is that it has certainly price in this hike that they will announce. if you say price and you don't see the market sells off just because they start to go higher. i think it's all about the pace and magnitude i think the problem would be janet yellen is going to give an indication a no indications that they can step up the pace tomorrow. that is not priced in. next year maybe two and half percent. the market is not prepped for any kind of rate hike pace. i think it is. what i'm trying to get my hands around back in 2013 when
6:24 am
it hinted that we are supposed to do the bond buying program. they fell apart. it's going from one rate hike last year to three rate hikes last year. why is the market comfortable. this has been is been a very slow recovery obviously. you're right around 2%. i think the market perceives that is pretty dependable. i think we would argue that if it grows 2% our numbers are a touch higher than that this year. this is the pure normalization move here.
6:25 am
it's just more of a normalization type thing. the lesson they want to try to do is slow the economy down but beyond this in 2018 if we see some wage pressure which i think were going to the market in the second half of this year i think one headwind will be a fit --dash fears that they're going to be behind the curve and had to catch up. >> we just finished talking about the estimates on the healthcare plan. they are just dominated conversation. what does she have to do to navigate that. it seems like that will be the bigger issue here as opposed to the quarter-point rate hike in march. >> for us the healthcare issue is going to play out over a longer time as many of these proposals are going to take longer to implement i think what janet needs to do is recoe that this is good to take some time and talk about that. and make sure that the markets
6:26 am
no that the fed is not going to go to fast here. it is not expecting any kind of a surge in economic activity this year or next and the pace as can be modest as they had been talking about. it's more of massaging the market to let them know they are not going to try to slow the economy down and they will let this play out. they know the proposals will take a while to work out. they had been on fire. what are you doing. we been overweight financials. with industrials and healthcare. the overall human plane the more cyclical side. we felt that the s&p 500 was
6:27 am
get a make it high for the years. the top end of the target range is 2330. we are slightly above it. a couple of months earlier than what we thought. i don't think the cycle is coming to an end but based on our work anyway with the end of this year you will be a little bit lower than where we are now. net net this is can be a stall to slightly positive year for stocks. we want them invested. we don't think the cycle is over. you need to see some of the policy things play out. i think 2018 will be better for the market. we wl be watchg. >> coming up next the cia why the shift in this strategy. and what it means for the war on terror. the new fusion that mixes the

popular sponge cake with your popular blend.

6:32 am

others are lower, fractional move a quarter% lower blued stocks are mixed, take a look, not far from where they closed the night before. it is a treat with quite the perks, twinkie plans to take over your morning blend blues we haven't for you right here blues first a major shift in strategy for the war on terror which president trump has given the cia power to launch drone strikes the departure from the obama administration policy where it was only allowed, the pentagon pull that trigger which promoted transparency since the military must publicly report airstrikes blues j is military r jack been in general keen, always a pleasure to see you, thanks for joining us. how do you see this, what are the advantages of the cia being able to launch drone strikes and this new authority. >> the cia did a lot of drone strikes during 9/11, they were always expanding which president
6:34 am
obama cut back on drone strikes during his tenure as president blues a little bit in the beginning, a lot towards the end blues what is happening here is the desire to conduct covert secret operations which the cia does exclusively. that is driving this and also i believe it is the location is also part of the reason for this lose there is transparency to the special committees on intelligence, they are our representatives, the american people as representatives, they have full disclosure of all the operations that the cia is doing that is what they don't do is publicly disclose. maria: meanwhile us special forces including seal team 6 which killed usama bin laden will take part in this large wardrobe in south korea as part of a plan to decapitate the leadership in pyongyang blues what do you think of that you the north korea story, when you
6:35 am
look at south korea, is bubbling up pretty significantly recently. is that a fair statement? >> yes blues this is a major exercise conducted on a periodic basis and it is all about change in north korea. it is about the feeding the north korean military and taking down its leadership. army deltas, seal team 6, army rangers are involved, they go after two things, one, leadership and that is obvious, and 2, they go after high-value faciti, in this case nuclear facilities and they are experts dealing with that so they are practicing both, taking down the regime leadership, taking it down and going after their facilities. maria: after north korea fired four ballistic missiles into japanese waters earlier this month blues what should be done
6:36 am
on that front? >> they fired those missiles because of this exercise is the reality is north korea is moving towards weaponization of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reach researching military bases and capable of reaching the continental united states, that puts us on collision course with north korea blues we are not going to permit them to launch a missile that would endanger the american people, china has got to be told, i am hoping secretary of state tillerson tell them you're reducing us to only a military option as we need you to start controlling the behavior of north korea or the president of the united states will have no options and the military option to launch an attack against a missile launched facility which we don't want to do but to may have to do bridge maria: the president will be meeting with the leader of china in a short period of time lodz
6:37 am
would you say this is one of the most important conversations to be had between the us and china, north korea? >> absolutely. china has been expanding its interests in the region, talking the pacific and south china sea at the expense of the united states and our allies, that is on the table as well, conducting massive cyberattacks on this country which they have cut back on but yes, this is the most dangerous situation we are dealing with blues this is the one issue when president obama left the president trump asked him what is the thing that worries you the most, north korea was his answer. maria: seems to be the disruption has been ramped up recently, the killing of the stepbrother and now the missiles into japanese waters which interesting on the drone story that the air force now has more jobs for drone pilots than any human flown aircraft according to military.com. is this a sign of the times? how do you see the military changing with the emergence of
6:38 am
drones? >> it is a sign of the times but i didn't realize that until i read it but i'm not surprised by it because drone technology is exploding and the reality is here but we have more drone pilots than we have manned pilots was the fact is even generally where we are heading is long strange strike farmers and fighter aircraft will eventually be remotely piloted blued it mes more sense to put three your people in a console and an air base in place in the united dates as a pilot, a weapons person, navigator, any kind of systems operators that you need to totally isolated, not in danger, not involved, taking care of that airplane to deliver its means to the target and bring it home safely as well. that is where we are heading, we can do that for any type of airplane that is flying and that
6:39 am
is just the cultural issue in our services believes they will move in that direction because it is the right thing to do and they will move steadily but deliberately in that direction. maria: tomorrow we will get the budget, the president's budget, the story of healthcare from the cbo yesterday blues what is your take in terms of defense spending was we had this conversation before, $54 billion in defense spending which the president proposed you don't think it's enough. >> it is not enough that we need another 30 or $40 billion is about $100 billion for four years is what they need to really jumpstart the military, get it out of the depletion it is in, the serious readiness problems that it has believes that is what is needed and i think we will get there the omb director mcilvain he has to find where the money is in the government but i also think there's money in the defense department in terms of defense
6:40 am
reforms, the first six months, you can get out in a couple years but if we put our nose to the grind stone we can get this money. maria: we will leave it there but we will be watching, that will dominate the conversation tomorrow is always a pleasure to speak with you blues thanks so much blued still ahead queuing up for prime time and pandora hit play on their new on demand service but are they too late to the game. winter weather gripping the northeast, thousands of flights delayed and others canceled, several states warning to stay off the roads as blizzard bears down, we have the latest, back in a moment lodz .

7:07 am
very successful address to a joint session of congress was when that was the topic of the news, the narrative you want to lay out, your policy agenda and your vision and now we see the president just being nagged to death because that is what the media will do with are we there yet you are we there yet? the mentality could have on that long road trip and they are going to have to come up with something or it will damage their inability but we are not talking the health care reform, not being asked to talk about tax reform or the economic growth, they are going to be nagged about this but i don't understand why you would purposefully change your own narrative when you had a successful event. maria: one of the things i have been seeing that is fascinating because this did change the narrative from one of the most successful speeches president trump is given to now we are talking about his sweets again but the thing that is
7:08 am
fascinating is underneath this people have all had questions about what is donald trump's relationship with resolution is haunting him in many ways like hillary clinton's emails did that is the question is what is really going on and it seems he is taking this by going head on and saying they were doing stuff that was wrong too, let's try to shift the blame in some ways so we are having a different conversations about russia than they were before blues do you think that is part of his plan? >> i don't know what the intent of the plan is was if i were sitting up there at 1600 pennsylvania i would say simply after that address i just laid out my policy vision, the means by which we are going to turn this economy around, what we will do to get americans back to work and strengthen our national security, that is what i'm focused on which i'm not focused on these specters of specution people are putting outhere so at some point in time you have to put everyone else aside and say this is what my business is

7:10 am
to provide, so what is happening is a big thing, the unfunded liabilities and mandates the federal government continues to push on states and that is a violation of federalism, violation of the 10th amendment and states can't print money like the federal government can. maria: not the only state making noise on this please we want to get your take on this next story because the wrapper snoop dogg is under fire this morning for a mock assassination of president trump in a music video. it is quite disgusting but what is your reaction? >> it is disgusting was when hillary clinton talked about a basket of deplorables, when is this going to end? this reaction, this violence, vitriolic reaction to the election of november 2016, the violence we see on the streets? if this were flipped to eight years ago and this was happening in a different situation and that was a mock up of president
7:11 am
obama the media, everyone would be outraged. mister dog is probably in violation of us statutes and needs to be held accountable for his actions. maria: what should happen here? to do a mock assassination of the president? >> the secret service should investigate this. maria: he has the president dressed as a clown. what do you think? >> this is not -- he is trying to make a point and their are legitimate things we could be talking about from a political perspective. maria: what is the point? >> this is not enlightening, it is not creative, it is not thoughtful, just london's and it is dragging down the convertion in this country was my queion is how do you respond to this productively? it is terrible, it is awful but what can the president do to
7:12 am
change the tone and distance himself from this and set a new tone and attract people to what he is trying to do? >> very simple. the president should step up and say i am going to focus on the fact that% of black children have a mother or father in the home which i will focus on better education opportunities in the inner cities and urban communities with we just saw the president stand up signing and executive order with the historically black colleges and university presidents, that is what he needs to focus on, making sure we have better education opportunities in college and these individuals graduate from college and go out and have successful and productive live so i think that is how he take the center that into a positive bleach maria: that is a good deck and that is what he should be doing which as a rapper, to try to be a model for young people, that is what he should be talking about, education. >> this is snoop dogg, this is outrageous, this is a role model for children, this is -- maria: he says he is.

7:32 am
devastating effects of obamacare, the devastation in 17, 18, 19, it will be gone by then was whether we do it or not it will be imploded off the map. maria: the gop's fight is on coming up, tragedy for tyler perry after a fire destroyed his father's home blues details coming up. daughter ivanka trump shifting the focus to less expensive options and markets are mixed, futures indicate a lower open, down industrial down 30 points, a fractional move but all the major averages ahead of the fed meeting stocks searching direction blues the s&p is up, the cac quarante and dax index lower, federal reserve begins a two day meeting and they will raise interest rates tomorrow
7:33 am
blues brothers in arms and in his this blues the vets that are using their company to hire fellow heroes, weight until you see this story coming up this morning, congressional budget office releasing a report on the gop replacement plan for obamacare, the republican plan would increase the number of people without health insurance by 14 million by next year and by 2026, 24 million americans would be uninsured but it would cut the federal deficit by $337 billion blues donald trump held tom price and house speaker paul ryan, weighed in on the report. >> we are not going to have 1-size-fits-all blues we will work to unleash the power of the private marketplace to the insurers compete for business and you will the rates go down and plans go up. >> we disagree strenuously with the report that was put out but we believe our plan will cover more individuals and given
7:34 am
choices they want, not a livable is what we would suggest. >> it is a lower premium, 10%, stabilizes the market, it is $1.2 trillion spending cut. maria: health and human service secretary under george w. bush and tommy thompson, thanks for joining us. >> always a pleasure to be on your program, thanks for having me ends good luck. maria: we need good luck in this snowstorm. maria: the cbo's report where they talk about 24 million people being without insurance, what is your take on this? >> look at the overall direction paul ryan and the republicans are going blues obamacare took one year to get past, went
7:35 am
through several iterations, several deals had to be made to get the necessary votes. in new york, if you like good sausage, good laws, best not to be a manufacturer, this will go through a lot of things, the cbo score, they were completely off you won't change your plan, just the opposite took place, so many areas in this country don't have any competition whatsoever. in some areas no plans at all blues what republicans are trying to do is set up competition as president trump just said, as everybody knows, it is going to be an area where consumers have a lot voice, a lot more decision and i would say don't at it now, look at it
7:36 am
when the bill is passed. maria: a lot of different iterations before the plan budget will be marked up quite a bit. >> there will be a lot of changes was when it gets passed through the house, there will be a lot of changes, the $14 million figure, people won't have a choice, be completely less and probably an area that will be more people covered in the long run. maria: people might not be covered because they chose not to be covered. >> choice is one of the most important things people will get out of this plan. talking about who is not covered or what we are losing, i want to know what do you think the most important component of this proposal are, that we are going
7:37 am
to get? >> the fact that you will have individual choice, pick the plan you want and open up the insurance market with the insurance company will come in nationally and offer a cheaper plan, more plans and you will decide as a consumer what is the best plan for me? do i need this coverage obamacare says i have to have, maybe i don't and i can have a slimmed down pack the take care of me and my family and it will be less costly and more competition which will help consumer. speech e.g. when the president talked about a more competitive market and more choice but you be specific in explaining to our viewers what is it in the paul ryan plan that makes the market more competitive? what are the details that will bring more choice and more competition to the insurance
7:38 am
market? >> it will allow individuals to have more choice in the long run but also you got to wait for the total package this is one of three areas i looked at blues first one, this one has to be in the reconciliation so there is a limitation as to what paul ryan and the republicans read this first bill, second what is tom price's secretary has awesome powers, it will change a lot of this and make the laws and make the more competitive blues the third one is the house and senate past the third bill which does not have to be restricted by reconciliation, the bird rule you have more competition put in, be able to buy insurance across state lines, have a different package, have you able to decide what is the best
7:39 am
package for you. that is where paul ryan and the republicans want to get to. >> a lot is made of how people will fall off of medicaid as a result of these cuts but the point you want to create a healthcare system where you have fewer people depending on government run health insurance? isn't that one of the features of this program? >> absolutely but everybody also want a safety net which i spoke to speaker ryan and president trump and everybody wants to have a very secure safety net so do have access and the opportunity to have health insurance and this is going to take place, it will not all be taken care of with the first bill. it will be the and the second bill but a 3-legged stool will take place and you will find that the end of the day more competition, more insurance companies in the market, less
7:40 am
premiums and more opportunities to buy insurance and in those areas where you have to have the government medicaid will play a vital role but the states will set it up, not the federal government and that is the thing. maria: some people argue given it allows more people into the medicaid program it is more of a government giveaway. >> no question you can make that argument but it also has a on it and there has never been a cap on medicaid before blues all of this goes into play, back to what the surrogate court said, you have good laws, best not to make an early watch project an end when all is said and done, a lot of iteration just like the obamacare took over a year before that was finally passed but if you remember, when it was finally passed they had to come back with a cleanup bill in

8:08 am
cbo estimates are not fact. they are projections of incredibly complex model for health care -- >> they have been wrong, but a what we should be saying thank you for input this is a data point in the conversation, it is not fact and we need to look at assumptions in these o he projections and determine if accurated or not that is what i think administration should be going with. >> -- the hire you -- >> definitely. >> this plab is going to change when it pops to the senate so estimates might be meanwhile,less once senate adds facets selling insurance -- across state lines, we could see everything change. >> i wondered how that changes the cost. because that is one of the things going for it the cost. >> the cost reductions are driven by the fact that people are going to leave medicaid overtime at a is the big costs savings in this thing if more stay on medicaid cost savings go away republicans touting cost savings there, but they

maria: welcome back, a new turn in war on terror this morning "the wall street journal" is reporting that president trump, has given the cia now, ly new authority to conduct drone strikes on suspected militants the move for counterterrorism operations news correspondent lea gabrielle good to see you thanks so much for joining is. >> first of all, there has been a lot of questions about prent trump intelligence community the first thing signals is that he has trust in thentelligence community a if study is true, officials told "the wall street journal" in this case he is expanding
8:21 am
authorities to the intelligent sxhunt you allow an organization to do a strike mission, to take lives, you are giving them that authority definitely says you have confidence in the organization i think also that he wants to go against some targets, president trump has said throughout his campaign, that he wants to take hard stance towards isis and i think it basically sends a message, that he is wanting everyone who is in that space fighting against who has the ability to fight against isis in targets, has the ability when they he saw the rules of engagement figure out they have a viable target to allow them to go after them. >> do you think that is big break from the obama administration policy? >> well the obama administration policy really changed as a result of pressure from human rights groups groups like aclu, so in 2013, president obama really starting moving authorities over to pentagon the reason is because of transparency that pentagon requires in terms of what happens after strike about where civilian casualties, et cetera, the policies, this is a change in policy, it is a more
8:22 am
aggressive stance, by president trump, and you know it is basically a risk worse game decision that he has made because when you -- when you are giving authorities expanding them you are taking more risks and you are hoping that the game will be worth thoses risks. >> two questions. one is the pentagon had to disclose when it did strikes like this about the cia doesn't is this towards more covert operation by trump administration that is one the other is, is he taking power away from pentagon by allowing the cia, to do these drone operations? instead of the pentagon doing them? >> i want to answer second one first that is it is really that -- you know is he taking power from pentagon i do not view that it way i will tell you, why while first of all, there are a lot of joint programs within the cia military. i have been involved in programs where they worked together, i have seen how they can work together when they ry good environment to operate
8:23 am
withinon times cia works with special mission units, talking about things like delta, there are ways they can collaborate work together to be more effective, and what was your second question. >> is this a move towards more covert operations. >> yoo. >> does pentagon have to disclose when it does these things are there strikes we don't know about. >> cia doesn't have -- that is absolutely true i would say answer probable yes, i think that when you are war fighting you sometimes have to make those decisions are we more transparent are we going to do most effective, the element of surprise one of the basic concepts, in taking military action, in trying to fight wars so e element of surprise abity to nduct covert can did he say tiny operations i think very important i think what president trump is looking to do more of. maria: president said many times why tell the enemy what we're doing, very you know vocal on that, speaking of the drone operations the air force
8:24 am
more jobs available for drone pilots than any other human flown aircraft you were a pilot what do you think. >> two things as a joke, that well they have more jobs for drone pilots well if you are starting up to go fly for air force i guess you are probably going to want to fly a fighter jet like i did what i wanted to do that being said, now to more serious side, drones can do different things than jets, first of all, you can go into areas, and take higher risk because you don't have risk to human life you can put drones in places that you wouldn't necessarily want to put a jet with two people or one person or american life in it, so the other capabilities that drones have, is being able to stay aish born longer being able to carry payloads not carrying human beings a lot of reasons that we're going to use more and more drones in the future. but, again, i think to key point is, that the air force has all jobs available. >> does this change the profile of of who air fors is
8:25 am
looking for in these roles? you know does it shift you have got "top gun" sort of mentality in head now you want gameers -- >> almost is true profile of. >> i can't wait to see "top gun" for drone pilots movie. so those a volleyball team. >> it would be a game -- >> doing -- >> overcrowd by -- all night. >> to your point, i think the -- the things that make somebody good pilot still sort of apply across the board, having good hand eye coordination, ability to handle a lot of things at you at once so i think that still looking for similar people to be pilots, again, the difference is if you are sitting thousands of miles away, you know, essentially cubicle feels like simulator it is different than the person who actually has to operate in combat when you are actually there doing it and

8:31 am
current bill, top republicans lashed out against that report pop. >> but i am encouraged is, once the reforms kick in the cbo is telling us it is goings to lower premiums will lower premiums 10%, the fact of the matter going to be able to buy koifrj policies they want for themselves to and families have kind of choices that they want. >> the very latest on health care battle coming up new details meanwhile, in fallout over yahoo! hacking scandal massive chaensdz verizon tried to make to the deal for the company, after that breach, futures indicating market is mixed right now, in the u.s. we are expecting a lower opening for the broader averages take a look, with lows of the morning right now dow jones industrial average expects down 55 points, nasdaq s&p 500 also in negative territory. we are waiting on federal reserve, the fed kicked two of-day meeting today as planned. despite snow. and we are expecting that fed will announce tomorrow, that they are hiking interest rates by a quarter of a point, in europe, there are numbers
8:32 am
stocks lower across the board, as you can see there worst performer in paris cac quarante down two-thirds of 1% in asia overnight stocks are mixed but really not far from where they began the session, as you can see, fractal moves we are watching oil prices this morning a new 3 1/2-month low, opec said inventories continue to rise despite efforts to cut production with more oil, prices are pressure. >> have congressional budget office releasing report on gop replacement plan for obamacare cbo found republican plan would increase number of people without health insurance by 14 million next year by year 2026, a full 24 million amerans uninsured however, the report found it would cut federal deficit by 337 billion dollars next decade the president spoke about the health care bill yesterday. watch. >> secretary price and i along with my entire administration and a lot of people in the senate and a lot of people in the house are committed to
8:33 am
repealing and replacing this disastrous law with health care plan that lowers costs, expands choice and ensures access for everyone. >> want to bring in house generator leader creamy kevin mccarthy good to see you congressman thanks so much for joining us. >> thanks for having me i hope you are staying warm. maria: we are staying warm but it is snowing pretty aggressively here in new york, let me get your take on this idea that 4 million americans lose coverage, recognizing, of course, that that is also by choice. because as part of the plan, your doing away withes no mandates that forced people to take on health insurance or pay a fee. so part of it is by choice nonetheless 4 million americans not s insured by 2026. >> is to remember too this is o cbo scoring phase one of three phases, for the overall replacement remember we don't get to replace exactly as we want to in this first phase because one, you have to go
8:34 am
through reconciliation you have the bird rule senate doesn't ameticulous put all mechanism in they take care of some uninsured. >> secondly no process of what secretary price the powers that he has, more than 1400, in the aca, to improve and stabilize the market, but you are correct. we are repealing the individual mandate so there are people who do not want insurance that are forced to have insurance. that will will -- choose not to have it, but think of this i am actually very encouraged by cbo report one lowers premiums, the biggest concern people have out there, secondly it lowers the deficit, and when you look at small business confidence just booming, that is because it takes away more than 800 billion dollars of tax burden on them, so i am encouraged by this because this is only phase one of our three phases, people are going to have more choice, prices going to be lower at the end of the day, more people are going to be
8:35 am
encouraged to be able to have health care and health care that they choose to have. maria: rand paul obviously with his own plan, has said over the last week or so that it is an expansion of medicaid is it more important congressman to look at fact that over the near-term your plan allows more people to join medicaid or is it more important to take a look at the fact that there's ultimately going to be a cap on medicaid which actually contains it? >> well, medicaid cannot sustain itself the expansion of medicaid right now if you look in just 10-year window will cost us one trillion dollars in tenth year that is how much we spend on the entire discretionary budget from military cia to department of agriculture, so it can't sustain itself so if you don't the do something about it, and this is what we do in our plan, we actually give states about flexibility. i have 18 governors in you you bipartisan republican and democrats the number one thing they requested, give me flexibility, in any state and
8:36 am
i can manage the medicaid, it doesn't have to be able for federalizing to pay 90% of it that is exactly what we are doing we are finding a better way to give health care people have more choice going to lower the premiums. maria: what do you think the cbo report misses in terms of its assessment of this plan? >> well, it is not the cbo's fault of what they are missing because they can only score what is in front of them they don't get a score phase two all 1400 different points that dr. price has power to do, they can't score phase three, those bills that will be moving through the house right afr we vote on this bill will go to senate takes 60 votes, those type of elements combined together i think the american people are going to be able to see, a much better bill that puts them in power at the same time lowers the proo is. >> a lot of people are saying this morning, that this is like a sausage making process going to get marked up going to be a different bill before
8:37 am
it does become law, where is the give here congressman? how do you think this looks different in the next couple weeks? i know you have you want to get something out by easters. correct. >> yes, we would would you like to, remember we have gone through two committees already, every republican has voted for it we have taken every amendment that a democrats wanting to offer unfortunately, the democrats offered he amendments about changing hashtag the name of the bill spent hours on that. we will now go through the budget, and then we will go to rules committee, but i think this is the framework of where it is when you look at the core of what cbo says does it lower premiums lower deficit does it remove taxes from small business those are all yeses, yes, we remove individual mandate talked about that from the very beginning what we're going to see too, in phase two and three to be able to make those improvements of what we are looking for. we have never hidden from that fact. it is the rules of the senate, that forces us to do in three phases that is exactly what
8:38 am
we're doing, i am actually encouraged by what the cbo says, because it proves that yes, we are lower premiums. >> do you need that cadillac tax in there? i mean, do you need to have some mechanism to raise revenue while you are also cutting out so many other taxes, of course, that we know hurt business? >> no, we do not what we need is greater choice greater tint, because remember why we are here today maria. because one-third of every county in america only has one choice, government took it over says one-size-fits-all we know does not work for america. then forced people whether theyikt our not would punish them if they i had did not apply health care you look at cbo numbers should be encouraged that yes, we are going to lower premiums bring health care with more choice, more opportunity and empower the individual to make that decision. >> congressman i know you are going to speak with the president today about health care bill. what will be the focus of your conversation where are priorities when you are in front of the president about this. >> we continue to look at -- those members we need to
8:39 am
continue to talk to explain this bill to. as we walk through the process. we are going to be going through the budget process committee, this week. unfortunately congress because of the snowstorm is not in today will come in tomorrow, we just want to make sure everybody has all the information, touch base one more time continue to move forward. maria: you know the stakes are so high at this point why everyone is focusing on your timeline because if you don't get this done in time frame that you would like, then taxes become you know, delayed, so -- how do you see your timeline taking place in 2017 in terms of of the real priorities on agenda? >> we are going exactly to the timeline that we laid out our first process was regulation reform look how successful we've been at that, you know, never before had a congressional review only one signed into law we have already put three into law 14, in house we have moved to health care, we produced the bill two committees on track
8:40 am
exactly where we thought we would be once done with health care this is what cbo stresses as well repealing more than 800 billion worth of taxes that is loerz the baseline allows us to do and broaden tax reform next once health care is done, you are correct that is why it is so critical, to get health care done now, so we can move to tax reform growth in america that is number one thing we need growth in erica will solve many problems th idea america sets for mediocrity 2% or less new norm that is not where america is we should be , 4% of growth that would be a fundamental difference a change. >> what is a realistic corporate tax the rate? is it 20% congressman what is realistic tax cut for animaling american out there today what are people who are watching really going to see when your tax, he reform plan gets signed into law. >> well i think it should be 20% or lower corporate rate we know if we want to compete we
8:41 am
are in a competitive world, america needs to at least start on same starting line as other countries. so the other part tax respectfully should be especially for every american, it had should be able to fill out on a postcard you don't need seven different brackets of rates that should be three. and people should be able to understand whether having with money that is fair that somebody across the aisle not paying different making same amount i think you will find will bring growth back to america per proportionally jobs back to america you have watch what this president has done look at latest report for small business confidence they have seen a change in the white house now they are seeing policy changes here in congress, the senate we just need to carry through to make sure, we finish the job. >> so in terms of the bigger impact to economy you talked about 4% economic growth, does that come as a result of the business tax at 20% or do you think that comes as a result of people spending more because getting to keep more of their own money sniefrng it
8:42 am
