what we're working on right here regulatory reform we got a supreme court justice nominated confirmed we're, there is every potential going to continue to get regulatory work, and move to, at a, so this is a president that is getting a heart beat in that administration i think got feet on the ground they know where they want to go, and all these things are just some degree disattractions we are focused on day-to-day work to get work done move this economy along. >> kevin kelly i am glad you brought that up focused on day the to day to get can work done you are one of the he senators petitioned mitch mcconnell to reduce the recess actually stick around get things done you mentioned you are an outsider, but the american people want to see the senate get something done we are seeing the house, is pointings fingers at senate saying listen, there are focused on byrd rule want to go get o to 60 why don't you
get rid of rules impending your agenda especially health care especially on taxes. >> i love it when you have business guys on here. maria: exactly. >> kevin you got it finger on it that is the most of my life in the real world where you live, and that is exactly what we do in real world in senate we just did that in the supreme urt confirmation we actually changed the rule to do that. t there is terrace i think important to protect right now we've got to focus on getting the people's work done, we are down a rabbit hole maria talks about debt all the time this is something we've got to start facing the long term dangers are really republic threatening we are focused on health care issue we've got to move on we've got so many things we've got to do the reason we wrote letter to the leadership i give lirp a lot of credit for standing up of yesterday saying look we are going to stay here at least two weeks during that work period to make sure we continue to get this done, we've got to get the -- the debt ceiling a budget to do haven't done budget for 18 yet
reconciliation of budget fund only 30 days left between now end of fiscal year added 10 days if we need more we will add more. maria: good for you do you think you will get a vote to the floor in health care? a lot of people questioning why you didn't just vote on the house bill? you had you know they went back twice, they had a bill, but you guys wanted to up are it up start again? >> well that is washington, are everybody has got a better way, right now fighting the last -- >> what is holding the bill back right now? >> well i think we are trying to get the last vote or two we are down i believe we are down that close, honestly everybody trying to get to a why on this bill worked fever richley several months last few months leadership has given us another few do as supposed to vote a few weeks ago we have tan last few reservations sent suggestions that would alleviate some fears of some members to the cbo to get scored we will get scores back
moon we will see the final language, tomorrow, actually we are told and have a vote on it next week, i hope we get a motion to proceed first question we have to get over, will this senate body let us proceed to actually get on the bill and amend the bill on the floor of the united states senate. >> senator mike murphy, as a business earn -- businessperson a deal both give in a little bit each he wants health care bill republican democrat everyone wants a good solid lieutenant colonel bill for american people, so why not just get together, and both sides give in a little bit but the point is this bill has to get done so the -- you the if you get you a bipartisan like you would in business, lock the door we're not leaving until people can figure out the best plan, is that something that can be done or do you expect that done in the near future. >> that is my hope, i have to tell you, inside the republican caucus what we have
been trying to do is a compromise find people ways to compromise in this we have some leaders in that lamaralale trying to broker that a group of 13 open to a lot of people i have been most meetings myself, this is an effort to try to find an 80% acceptable solution like in business world every day, nobody gets one hundred percent perfect solution in a deal you know that, so what we're trying to do here is find something that is certainly better than obamacare what we issue working on right now if we pass house bill or bill a few weeks ago in the senate both are better than obamacare situation, we have right now collapsing under its own a wet. maria: let me ask you this, senator because you are on the senate finance committee means you are going to be taking the testimony, of janet yellen on thursday. of course, today she is speaking for the house financial services committee what do you want to hear from janet yellen what is most important to you senator. >> there is a lot i met with her recently, there are some first of all, when she seems before banking committee i think it is the first question i am going to have for her a
balance sheet, the feds had 4 1/2 trillion-dollar balance sheet a while talk about reducing that now to about 2 1/2, 50 billion dollars that is fine, but maria as you talked about on your show we've 6 trillion dollars in the private sector not at work in this economy between russell 1,000 balance sheet between what is stuck on bank balance sheets of the small banks community banks because of dodd-frank and, of course, this insane nonsense of unrepatriated profits because of repatriation law 6 trillion dollars if we release some of that i can see the balance sheet being reduced at fed number one, number two the rate environment right now we have had 100 basis point increase last 15 months fed fund rate that is that is a big number that is 200 billion dollars of new interest every year by the way, the other question i have 60% this is a question for the treasury but 60% of our 20 trillion-dollar debt maria is three years -- duration less than three years contrast with uk went long
over the last 8 years, theirs 48% longer than 0 years we've got serious, with about structural debt of this country so that. >> earlier we were talking with one colleague in the house he said look i want to know why rates are going higher when i look at my district in tennessee, people are worried about jobs, things are moving slowly so do you also worry, that as the fed raises interest rates it is going to stop the fraction that we've seen so for about a? in the economic recovery? >> i am worried about that also worried about if we don't get our job done here in the senate, and in congress, get this tax deal done this we are we could be facing a less than optimistic environment next year write now we have you talked about in show you have sperths on like you have today, the economy wants to turn, consumer confidence at 13-year high, i have studied that for a long time i have to tell you it is fragile, because household debt is now back up to one hundred percent household income where it was before 2009. so this is a fragile potential turnaround we need to see that, the work in congress
move but also we need to see fed be careful working on one number i disagree i am no economist but i know when you only focus on unemployment right now ignore the under employed people dropped out of the workforce you are missing the bigger picture that i hear every week when people are asking me david is there anything congress can do to help me get hours up one of the unintended consequences of obamacare. >> it is -- the cbo found that aca reduced labor participation, so even cbo found that out that it hasn't worked. maria: what is corporate rate senator that you want to see in the tax package? >> i want. >> they will know -- the corporate rates coming down should come down will move needle on economic growth layings your prior in terms of these corporate rate. >> depending about what what we do with deductions if we get 20% we will be competitive with rest of the world a premium to do business if the united states we should demand a premium we've got to get competitive with rest of the world wiring thing he also have to do at the same time eliminate insane repatriation tax that is one of the problems i have with the way
cbo scores there, and so we are moving on those right now, we are going to try to enact thet 's package on individual side, ooped get people there will the big news is to put american works back in competition with rest of the world by creating legislatively playing field what this president ran on. maria: that is why you want 15%. >> he wants 15 look that is opening bid if we get in 0% range maria we will be competitive with rest of the world impending when a we do with deductions. >> what is your noub senator good to see you thanks very much. >> thanks. >> see you soon senator perdue joining us can haveling power of television microsoft 10-billion-dollar plan to bring faster internet to americans in rural areas. >> monster hit no longer top watched on youtube song that took crown with nearly three billion views back in a minute. ♪ magic, magic, magic, magic,

varney weighs in big hour ahead stay with us this morning, president trump, defending his eldest season amid controversy over a meeting donald trump, jr., had last year with a kremlin linked lawyer promised damaging information about hillary clinton, blake burman with allocates now at the white house, blake, good morning to you. reporter: good morning to you as well donald trump, jr., acknowledged i probably should have hammed things a little bit differently as you mentioned president trump is defending his oldest son the president took 20 twitter a while ago writing my son donald did a good job last night, he was open transparent, and innocent, this is the greatest witch hunt and political history, sad. the president was he referencing his son's interview with sean hannity. >> in retrospect, i probably would have done things little differently again this is before the russian mania before they were building up in press for me this was opposition research they had something you know, or maybe concrete evidence to all stories i have been hearing about probably under reported for you know years not just
during campaign so i think i want to hear it out. >> trump, jr., e-mail show he met with attorney for russia six days after being emailed by adequateness june 2016 that quote russian government attorney end quote had damaging information on hillary clinton even some of the president's strongest backers question why don, jr., would have taken that meeting in the first place for example, the oversight committee itinerary trey gowdy says administration needs to come clean on russian contacts. >> from the time you saw dr. decisive zivago you list every one we are turning over to special counsel that drip, drip, drip is undermining he credible of this administration. >> trying to separate from the story, a spokesperson for the kremlin says it's government has no ties to that lawyer who ended up taking the june 9
meeting with donald trump, jr., jared kushner paul manafort pop diplomat. >> russia sergei lavrov said it otherwise quote twhield trump, jr., is receiving blame. >> we will watch that blake thank you blake burman at the white house jorng is former speaker of the house fox news contributor author of understanding trump, newt gingrich with us, always a pleasure thanks so much for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> first up sir your reaction to all of this. >> wild period. >> yeah you can say that again. >> well, look, i -- i think the most accurate parallel is author miller's great play the crucible about the salem witchcraft trials we know media wicks up in morning -- that donald trump did something horrible overnight i worked when it was take this case. >> donald trump, jr., admits not very mart to take this a real estate guy not politically savvy, so he has a
chance to sit down talk to somebody says there is something that can -- on hill the facts kremlin he has says no tie to this i havewritten two, three noeflz about terrorism spy agencies, et cetera, she didn't have anything for him this was a setup would have had some cool thing, he could have taken away they could have brought in and drawn him in she had nothing, pretty clear if you look at entire story, that they got him to meet so they could talk about adoption law and trying to change adoption law used phony pretens, should not have taken meeting but to suggest that this is going to rise to some criminal case requires i think totally rewriting american law so you know, we have extraordinary double standard, where the clintons take mils of collars secretary clinton okaying russians getting uranium bill clinton a half million dollars for speech from panic john podesta brother registered
agent forrun bank all sorts of connections and ties none of those, of course, matter after clintons clearly would not do anything bad then you get this wired story by the way, in gowdy said you suffuses jared kushner went back reexamined everything kushner filed the report and said yeah there was this wired meeting, now, i think they had forgotten it frankly because meeting was so -- to quote priebus on sunday the meeting was a nothing burger nothing happened there, apparently, manafort on cell phone most of the meeting, jared got up in suggestive left seven minutes in meeting as courtesy donald allows meeting to go on while she talked adoption law but to take that turn into a national scandal three days i think is an example of the media being frankly on edge of a pathology. >> the fact is that this
continues, right newt? this is a distraction lawmakers working overhauling health care tax reform in balance -- house majority leader kevin mccarthy told me yesterday. >> once we finish health mechanism for reconciliation all this stems because senate continues to wait for 60 vote rule not in the constitution. a lot of these would not be a problem if the senate simply worked by and used the majority they have, to pass the current bills that we have sent over there . maria: but you have to believe in a this russian noise is impacting the agenda, you recently penned an article saying republicans should startle planning deep tax cuts now as survival for 2018 elections depend on it why do you think this is the case, and isn't this the whole agenda of the left anyway? chuck schumer doesn't want agenda to get executed he wants to stop trump at every turn. >> you one of the things president trump has not come
to grips with us he won republican nomination in a hostile takeover beat 16 other people a true outsider, then beats hillary clinton in hostile takeover, takes on the clinton campaign billion dollars, hillary and bill he takes on elite media now in a city bureaucracy overwhelmingly voted against him, and state department, 99% donations went to clinton, and justice department, 97% donations to clinton so he has bureaucrats against him news media against him democrats against him substantial number of respects hoping he failtz, he has to relax say tort next 8 years going to be in unending conflict all sorts of people try to stop him the way you win that conflict you pick a handful of really big victories one of them would be a very simple very clean tax cut, 15% corporate rate very substantial middle class tax cut we patriation overseas
money nothing complicated drive it home august talk economic growth jobs american people say that is what they want let american people put pressure on congress, the president should arouse the country all cabinet officers go out give three or four speeches in august should barnstorm country on behalf of jobs economic growth demand pass bill in september no later than thanksgiving a signing ceremony make it retroactive to january 1 economy booming country thinks "new york times" "washington post" are stupid we go on happily to have republicans success in 18, and 20 that is what i would recommend. >> mike murphy i love your plan as you laid it out but the one thing though is president trump is advoiding the mainstream media and taking his message to the people, by a via twitter a lot of times it things like this isis victory important point but a lot of times it is also getting off track on some
things that seem a little bit -- uh -- >> unimportant to say the least, so do you think he needs to get the message clear on twitter or is he actuallyiappealing to base wants important and unimportant stuff as well. >> i once said to him, 10% less trump would be one hundred percent more effective. and he raised eyebrow looked at me said exactly what -- >> talking about my tweets. >> i said i love 80% of your tweets -- between 80, a, 95 i think there are times he hurts himself like a football player trips himself up falls on the ground, because some tweets i think distract us but there is a bigger story reagan came out of iran/contra bill clinton came out of whole scandal because both of them focused on bigger things rallied country to things that mattered to the country and

monitor what they are doing because if it is having too much of impact you want to be able to ease off not set in stone, that they can't back away from. >> also going to characterize where we are in the economy is she talks about -- her interest rate increases policy. >> yeah i mean i think what i want to hear from her is talk about fiscal plans policies how they can impact this economy drive it going forward we've seen several fed governors come out talk about how they need fiscal policy whether tax repatriation or lower tax wrailt breaking news right now comments, the e-mail is being lifted right now adam shapiro what is highlights from janet yellen remarks now. reporter: good morning federal reserve to unwinding balance sheet this year we will hear from that janet yellen also expects fed to continue gradual increases of the interest rates, federal reserve expect neutral level a federal funds rate lower than
previous decades that is not great sign for growth in the economy -- 2017 job growth sufficient to add new intrapts to the labor force fed expecting a gdp rebound second quarter greater than 1.5% reported first quarter, so these are the big highlights from what she is going to say before the committee this morning, when she testifies on financial services, but there is one quote that i want to read to you when you dig into it kind of sums up you where the fed stands on economy and jobs additional gradual rate mikes are likely to be appropriate over the next few years to sustain economic expansion returnflation to 2% goal even so committee continues to anticipate longer run neutral level of the federal funds rate while to remain below levels that prevailed in previous decades not expecting growth in this economy to be sufficient to bring us back to where we were with the federal funds rate at
least neutral level prior to the recession. >> she thinks gdp will continue to improve that right. >> that is correct if when you look at monetary outlook expecting fed gdp 2.2%, 2018 though slightly lower they are expecting about 2.1%. maria: we will wait for that thank you adam giving us opening remarks of janet yellen, as the embargo lifted. >> you can see in market right now that stocks are going up because interest rates are going to remain low that is good for equities, that is why equitable evaluations are higher because worth more in the low-interest rate environment if we're not going to get back to 4% normalized rate that we have seen the past couple decades then here it is. >> isn't -- good news good news and bad news bad news now? i would prefer to see that we can get back to more normed i would rather futures the fact
that we can the economy strong now of to support higher interest rates because we know savers getting hurt interest rates so low i was hoping for a little more positive out of that maybe more. >> the problem is how are we going to do that when we have all this entitlement spending that is growing, there is so much debt already on household balance sheets corporate balance sheets as well as federal balance sheet the problem is that you can't see the growth of 3% or more, unless we get big fiscal policy that can drive that action the problem is how are we going to pay for that, and there isn't a way to do that right now we are seeing congress having a hard time getting a health care plan appropriated. >> can't growth and tax that comes from the growth pay for itself? isn't that part of the plan. >> that is what mnuchin keeps saying that is what he says. >> that is what he thinks but so hard to do that we are long in the tooth in this business, cycle, we are already in probably 6 or 7th inning. >> this is her last you know hearing last testimony who is
going to be the next one to follow up is it gary cohn or is she going to say something that that may be signals she wants to stay on. >> unless trump reappoints her has not said he would be the reappoint her, we don't know. >> i would find that kind of. >> hard to believe. maria: you it can he won't reappoint her. >> i think he will put someone new in there yeah i also think that i see things a little bit differently than kevin i think late in economic about cycle yes, but different economic cycle technology i think could extend the economy set for higher if we get some good news out of washington the economy possibly productivity has been down labor participation rates down wages not increasing dichotomy between automatics in jobs productivity when it comes to technology, it is a tough, tough environment. >> we point out the markets have improved a bit fractional moves positive, on the heels of that opening remark the

supporter of the constitution. he there is to protect the american people. the fbi gaits, byrd act to espionageing everything else in between, you know what is going on last few years you know, i have always said jim comey didn't have the intestinal fortitude to actually be fbi director should have stood up resigned when the whole thing was being politicized. >> you i mean loretta lynch met with bill clinton on tarmac. >> right. >> when he go the to word from loretta lynch to call it a matter instead of of a investigation. >> exactly no grand jury things like that wasn't recorded. >> and -- other activities i mean he was just all over the lot, and, you know, the longer we look at this thing the worse it gets for him, but i hope that this fellow is going to understand that it is a different job being fbi director than being is one in justice department, it is
apples and oranges, and you've got to put your investigative hat on be leader the movitator communicate with public understand you their issues, you know, if some agency is taking them to task like irs to so many you've got to have intestinal fortitude not bob diverted from where these types of investigations. >> i would like to know why irs wasn't investigated in terms of targeting conservatives, john koskinen still on job we know they targeted conservatives. >> didn't agree with political -- >> when that happens you've got to stand up you've got to tell american people, this is bs, this is not what we're here for. we believe this crime is being committed we want to gait not letting us investigate properly appoint new director every two months if that is the game they want to play. >> ray today testimony comes amid a new fbi document dump.

is so much out there, maria, that you know you've got to take your any political hat you have and you've got to plow forward you've got to be tough guy, i hope this guy is a tough guy, and i hope he can do something about the political correctness, that is really tying the hands of the fbi and other agencies you know for the last over 8, 12, 14 years, you know where they haven't been able to actually investigate and look at things from a motive standpoint because of politics. >> they are not going to investigate the clintons when the boss loretta lynch is basically calling it a matter not an investigation. >> not only that, the muslim brotherhood is influenced these agencies, you know through front groups, you know, under the guise you are picking on a religion so therefore kind of like you and i cosa nostra in 70s we couldn't know anything about them about how they operate,
what hierarchy is what mories rules of engagement we can't know anything of that. >> you mentioned hillary clinton getting 140 million dollars into clinic foundation after approved the sale of 20% u.s. stockpile uranium all we hear about now is donald trump, jr., meeting with this lawyer. >> well -- >> if you are a operative in mul of campaign somebody says hay i have damaging info on spent what are you going to say. >> yeah love it let's hear it. >> tim kaine comments outrageous talking about treason, potential treason, giving iran 150 billion dollars to help kill more americans, in the future. i mean that could be treason but certainly not having a meeting i mean just outrageous how people just blow things
