10%, the shares at 16% in just the past year. and sears is trying to return to profitability by closing as many as 72 stores. it will include kmart and sears stores, most of them closing by september. the latest bring the number to 180 sears has had to shut down this year. a look at u.s. stock market futures right now. dow putting lower by eight team, premarket nasdaq and that is what is happening right now. lauren: still no major selloffs. president trump heads to ohio for the trillion dollars infrastructure spending plan. the trump agenda is back on track. joining us now to talk about it, politics and market reaction from a gop strategist fort o'connell and vice president of global accents. good to see both of you. let me start with you.
the president's push for infrastructure, you think i would get bipartis support i also want to know, you start with privatization of air traffic control. why not fixing the bridges and tunnels on potholes. >> you think you would get bipartisan support. but the president is proposing is a trillion dollars in spending and infrastructure with 200 million coming from the government side and 800 billion from the private sector. here's the problem. democrats don't like the fact the private sector will weigh in here. they think we should have more government spending. i do like the fact they are being optimistic. the legislative days are ticking away. congress is behind the eight ball and they won't help republicans whether it's on infrastructure, tax reform or obamacare. train to a trillion dollars infrastructure's pending plan akin to vajpayee should garner bipartisan support. at the same time the plan we've
seen so far says these are public private partnerships and states need to bear the brunt for these projects. several states are definitely not a good fiscal shape to handle that. they could be reaching out to investors. >> that's absolutely possible. you saw 70% of los angeles citizens vote for a plan to spend more money in los angeles. if you do push to the states that need infrastructure, citizens will get behind it. cheryl: you got to get investors behind to buy bonds to support that. they don't have the funding. >> brain. this is a challenge for the u.s. in terms of an infrastructure plan. europe, japan, developed markets, infrastructure is privatized. highways, airports, seaports sold off in public markets. it's not the case in the u.s. except for utilities, telecoms.
>> jerry, to your point, that the democrats are pushing back on if the mechanism for finding. this is going to be a tax giveaway to millionaires and billionaires seeking on the most attractive projects in what we call underserved areas will not actually see private sector money. the markets can help better because they saw already would have been so they push government funding out there with the bum a shovel ready jobs. we need to try to attack. lauren: we believe that they are. ford and check, thank you. cheryl: we've got a lot coming out. two months ago this guy didn't have a job. not a cincinnati red is a baseball legend. we will tell you why and show you. you are watching "fbn:am," your first look at morning markets and breaking news. and breaking news and sports.
