6:03 am
>> 74% of the companies have been on the bottom line. that is really important. usually only about 50 plus% deet on the topline. it's encouraging that we see so far. where facebook amazon later in the week. maria: the bottom line with earnings is that taxes the better-than-expected quarter by cutting costs, deferring whatever you need to defer, the revenue tells the story. you can't lie about revenue growth when it going well. >> if you steal from one card and push it to the next, they are doing it. maria: the embargo that has just been lifted. breaking news that right now. jared kushner's opening statement has been released. here's what he says in part. this is happening this morning. i'm not a person who has the spotlight for us to make business about public service. i worked on achieving goals and have left it to others to work on media and public perception.
6:04 am
a great deal of conjecture, speculation and inaccurate and i'm grateful for the opportunity to set the record straight. kushner says this. in part, no of the meeting i attended and there's no follow-up to the meeting that i'm aware of. i do not recall how many people were there and i have no knowledge of any documents being offered or expect it. testimony which as i mentioned was just the embargo lifted it will bring you more throughout the morning. former u.s. attorney for the eastern district of arkansas, now partnered avenue strategies. thanks so much for joining us. >> good morning, maria. maria: you heard the initial thoughts from jared kushner. would he know about the testimony? >> it sounds like he's been very open and very honest and is telling the same story told all
6:05 am
along, that in regard to that same media that has been the main focus of attention that is a big nothing in the recipe of this contacts with russians were fairly limited in the environment he was in at that time. >> i have a question about this little thing. this marriage doesn't seem like it's going to go away. no matter what he says, people who oppose him will not believe and end it will keep going. how do you think they move things forward and get this narrative to die? >> i think bob mueller is going to have to do his work. there is a legitimate debate over whether there is a need for a special counsel, but i completely personally understand why rod rosenstein appointed him at the time he did. i understand the general sessions recused from this. they were trying to do this great thing, but in retrospect to respond to bowling pressure by the opposition. it is abundantly clear there is
6:06 am
no substance to this investigation. if bob mueller is half what most of us think he has come out the professional coming of getting, get the facts and get out. maria: that's exactly right. what you said is right, but feared he was put into basically saying i'm going to recuse myself. it's outrageous that at this point he doesn't have an attorney to join him. >> it's very difficult when the team is fractured that way. can you imagine a situation where the attorney general with the investigation and defending the facts. >> well, it is awkward and that handicaps you a little bit. it is manageable, but in this case they could manage a deputy attorney general rosenstein affects and it's got a long reputation being really ethical
6:07 am
guy. they took advantage of general session to list to come out of the senate and jester a confirmation hearing. i really think they kind of challenge them to do these things than they did them kind of been an abundance of caution. in retrospect, the counterintelligence investigation or at least supposed to be, not a criminal investigation and could easily, it bob mueller doesn't, like i said, do what he has a reputation for doing, a tough no-nonsense guide that will go where the facts lead in getting and get out and not let this thing grow. if he does his job, it can end sooner. we can get on top of things important. that remains to be seen. >> with the ballot here. a couple things from his testimony. jared kushner saying there was no collusion. obviously that is what we've been hearing. he also says i have not relied on russian funds to finance my business center. hopefully this will output the
6:08 am
meeting and this news to rest. this is all in his opening statement. >> it will be interesting to hear what he has to say about the lines of communication top about what the russians are potentially wanting to open. also, there's been a lot of criticism about the testimony because he's expected to not testify under a house james comey had to. is that normal? is it something the lawyers negotiated? maria: that's hillary clinton what should point out. she was not under oath and it was not recorded when she had her interview at the fbi. go ahead, bud. sorry. >> i was just going to say that allots made out of that. if that's a crime what you've taken an oath or not. minded congress is a crime. he's got lawyers. he wouldn't be there talking if he thought he would misrepresent the truth. i tell my clients, you either go in until the full truth or you don't talk at all. there is nothing in between.
6:09 am
people and try to manage the truth and it's all a bad idea. i don't jared kushner is a smart guy and he is not managing the truth or he would be there. negotiating with paul manafort about testifying in a public hearing. why any other geysers would take the risk. what are your thoughts. >> politically they need to move this along. they are frustrated we are in it. a lot of people think we should be in it. the way to get through it is to tell the truth, what the prosecutors do their work. hopefully like i said coming egos are funny and hopefully that the budget of the special counsel and headlines will turn this into a perpetual investigation of a person
6:10 am
instead of a transaction over the whole course of the presidency. so many important things the american people sent this president to do and that is what we need to be talking about, not an imagined investigation. maria: it's incredible. >> there's just nothing to talk about. >> it is incredible that this narrative has been able to be driven as far as it has. you've got a special prosecutor, no other than and yet here we are waiting for the testimony today. meanwhile, president trump sent to deliver a statement on health care this afternoon. senate republicans are filing ahead with their plan to roll back obamacare. the president is expected to meet with the dems of obamacare. the president turned up the pressure on lawmakers this weekend. here's what he treated
6:11 am
yesterday. if republicans did not repeal and replace obamacare, repercussions will be greater than any of them understand. wondered what though they would be voting for, rand paul said that this week in a "sunday morning futures." listen to what he told them. >> we don't know whether we are going to be voting on the first version of the senate bill, second version of the senate to come a new version of the senate bill or 2015 bill that would have repealed the affordable care act now. >> one way or the other would need to get on the bill in the leader will make that decision at some point about whether that is repeal and replace. they are going to present us with either partial repeal of the senate republican leadership plan, which does not repeal of obamacare and it's really a pork -fest of all government programs and spending. it's become the kitchen sink throwing money for anyone they can buy off on the bill. maria: are they able to get this
6:12 am
done, you think? >> i don't know. politically they need to repeal obamacare. the only other choice is to let it continue to fester until it dies of its own defects. i will punish a lot of people reliant on it. if they repeal it, they are going to face certain political consequences. the obama administration is kind of like a truck that dumped a big load of manure off the exit. it is really hard politically for them to come out on top on the because health health care h a complicated mess. i think they've got some good solutions, but they don't have total solutions. passing a new bill is to do the republican party is divided which way they want to go, whether they want to go towards expanding medicaid. some are trying to support that appeared in arkansas, our governor has come up with an innovative way of administering
6:13 am
and is working. maria: it seems like they are tweeting the language on tax reform. his doubt what they should be doing? interesting now will get tax cuts as opposed to tax reform. >> i think it's important to focus the whole thing. tax cuts will not get support across the aisle. i'm a little concerned about the change in language. maria: what about this report of the national review? new information leaked from the congressional budget office. they estimate that 22 million people who are supposed to be without insurance in 2026 under the senate bill, 73%, 16 million would have voluntarily dropped out of the market because they would face a penalty for doing so. i wish dagen mcdowell was here right now because she's been saying that for weeks. the whole number two share to be jesus out of everybody because
6:14 am
they choose to be without insurance because it forces you to take insurance or pay a fee. >> you know, these are the people they could call a reduction and increased qaeda. they are calling 16 million of 22 million people that will lose their insurance or people that will voluntarily quit the minute the government takes the gun away. they deserve better. this is so critical for working people. health care is too too expensive and people with families are trying to figure it out. they deserve better than that kind of deception. i can't say it on tv. what's the right word? it's wrong. maria: all of us here are just looking for a little more. thanks so much. >> thanks for having me.
6:15 am
maria: stay with us, a lot more to come.

6:25 am
bag sealed, the curve is a problem, but the regional did better because they are able to charge more without paying the depositors more. wear you out on this? >> just to be clear, most of our exposures in the credit with chuck cbs. cbs backed by the banks, and so if you look at the improving credit quality care it's a very strong tail wind. every time the fed raises rates, not only good for the interest margin, better for them than the larger ones because they draw more cash flow. if there's one part of the u.s. economy by republican senators, democrats, congressmen and the white house agrees regional community bank server regulated. one of the few places you can count on meaningful regulatory reform. you have all of these to drive
6:26 am
improvement. the broader equity story advances weekend substantially. that is the number one problem in the second problem is of course there is a mismatch loan growth as people expected. we're a little testbed on the capital structure. we just don't see anything that can derail the improvement. >> we talked earlier about the revenue in the net income line. there was a factor that may underperform in this quarter, which wendy thinks would be? >> there could be continual disappointment for investors. a lot of people got on the energy rebound train. it is still sick. demand is growing, but you get marginal production from nigeria and libya and should be a bit lower two months ago, as soon as oil goes up, we'd expect it to
6:27 am
be a lacquered. >> for us, the mission is to generate terms that are dependent on equities and bonds. we're the first day the only way to perform in line with equities is to be 100%. if you do something different, most of the disk cache oriented in the housing market and let the financial service industry. more broadly for your viewers, we think the next six to 12 months is a reasonable opportunity to at least perform directly to the u.s. that is one place we've ramped up over the past six months. europe has been neither a debacle or lack of disappointment since the beginning of 2011. the last great environment was so five, 06. you finally see all the pieces of the puzzle together.
6:28 am
i mean full body we should discount. much more meaningful to dated january 2016. you also have very strong earnings growth and tied to it all is getting back to oil. a much better beneficiary to the u.s. as well. all we are saying is that the next 12 months s&p is up 8%. there's a chance the european indices can get 10, 12 or 15. the last piece of the puzzle is the political transformation. europe is going to be a mess in terms of politics. it is really around more senate left candidates. when's the last time you talk about france reforming? they did their restructuring when they were in power and there is reasonable chance as well. they are extremely heavily weighted to the u.s. for the past five, six years and is a
6:29 am
reasonable time to nibble a little bit. maria: will be watching that. thank you. good to see you. coming up, the war on terror. the taliban claiming responsibility for a suicide attack in kabul. details on explosion that killed at least 24 people. that is next. the state of the u.s. economy. the forecast said economic growth story is next right after this break. back in a minute. today, we're out here with some big news about type 2 diabetes. you have type 2 diabetes, right? yes. so let me ask you this... how does diabetes affect your heart?

(laughing) maria: happy monday.
6:32 am
welcome back, everybody. thank you so much for being was. i'm maria bartiromo, it is monday july 24th, top stories right now 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. russia takes center stage in nation's capitol today. jared kushner will testify behind closed doors before lawmakers over possible russian meddling. more specifically the meeting he attended with donald trump, jr. last summer. in the meeting in part, no part of the meeting i attended and there was no follow-up to the meeting that i'm aware of. i do not recall how many people were there or their names and i have no knowledge of any documents being accepted as lawmakers prepare in sanctions against russia. >> the administration is supportive of being tough on russia particularly in putting sanctions in place and we support the legislation and we continue working with the house and senate to put the tough sanctions in place by russia.
6:33 am
maria: more on the possible sanctions this morning. at least 35 people killed and dozens injured after a bomb ripped through kabul, afghanistan, left nearly 2,000 civilians left this year. 2,000 civilians. new concerns over government waste meanwhile the.gone is being criticized for spending $30 million on camo uniforms, camouflage, apparently they weren't needed. the pressure on the stock as the lock-up period nears an end. that's when fdzers can sell, that will put measure on it. futures looking lower. the market will open with selling pressure today. dow industrials down 17 points right now. das dabbing, s&p 500 also in negative territory. in europe fresh data, recent economy grew closer than expected. the dax index in germany down two-thirds of a per can he be the.
6:34 am
in asia overnight, take a look at the numbers. hang seng was the best performer. when -- would you let an employer put a chip in your body, yeah, chips in the body, breaks news this morning. jared kushner is releasing opening statement from his testimony today before lawmakers, the white house senior adviser details conversations with four russian contacts through trump's presidential campaign, that includes previously undisclosed meeting with russian sergey lavrov in april of 2017, here is what he said in part, i did not collude nor anyone else in the campaign who colluded with any foreign government, hayed no improper contacts, i have nod relied on russian funds to finance activities, joining us right now london center of policy research and retired cia trained intelligence operative lieutenant colonel tony chaffer.
6:35 am
your reaction. >> well, look, any time you're in politics specially when you're talking about being at the national level you're going to have meetings with senior people, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting an embassador, for goodness sake. sergey kislyak, i think the testimony he's put forward, at least the opening reflects the fact that during the campaign it's really busy, you're meeting with a lot of folks and, you know, a lot of those meetings you do not remember specific details unless something extraordinary happens. nothing notable happened in the meetings and nothing taken away. you can't collude unless there's something to collude about.
6:36 am
>> what advice would you give jared and don, jr.? >> the easiest thing is to tell the truth. it really comes down to that. much of what needs to be exposed here the cleat lunacy behind the narrative. you're meeting with a lot of folks. there's a lot of information coming and going specially with these folks that have never been expose today international politics like this. laying it out, just saying what happened, how it happened, who was involved is going to be very important and let's remember that the gps folks on the other side of this are being called in and, of course that should be the focus of a lot more reporting that you had the opposition research group that prompted at least one of the meetings that appears to me to be a set-up that the obama administration was at least aware of regarding the fact they had to approve visa to get people in. maria: knowing the ties that have been preobviously between
6:37 am
hillary clinton and the russians and john podesta and the russians and others, is that going to be part of the investigation that mueller is doing, what do you think? >> i know i talked about the network, it better be by the fact that podesta -- i loved your the whole thing with podesta, what happened, maria, was amazing when you interviewed him. that was superb and you pointed out rightly that there were direct financial contacts between john podesta and the russians. it needs to be looked at, secondly, regarding clinton herself there's all sorts of meetings that happened behind the scenes, the iranian deal that hasn't been fully examined. maria: i just wonder if it comes up lindsey bell, go ahead. >> what do you make, though, of the part where trump is going to have to get permission from congress to pull back any sanctions? >> well, that's not extraordinary.
6:38 am
you have to remember that congress did the same thing regarding iran and some of the thicks that obama administration did. president obama could not remove all the sanctions but trip wire. i do not have any problem with congress putting forward that there has to be strong sanctions, they have been to -- they have to be the ones of relieve. i've been accused of being supporting of russia. putin is a thug and putin is out to do one thing, reestablish the old soviet empire and influence. we cannot be naive to think this is where this is all going. president trump has been doing the right thing to push back very hard promising europe energy and specially poland and other places and saying we are going to be part of nato and article 5. this is another part of continuing to show the russians we are not going to allow -- chuck schumer, moving back into the world of influence. >> so this is lee carter, how
6:39 am
are you doing this morning? >> hey, lee, good morning. lee: is many issues conflated here. criminal investigation, there's -- there's intelligence issue and, i think, everybody is pointing to russia and not really sure what to make out of it because everything is getting tangled into one big thing. how do they separate these out so you can see what's going on here because when -- it's a catch-all russia and ends up being something bad there, how do they separate it at all for the people? >> that's the key thing. commingled it so it becomes one big mass and points to collusion. we have to be very clear, basically we have to -- like the reagan administration message very clearly on the fact that russia is up to no good, there's things we must do to defend equities and other places we cannot. secondly, we have to make a very factual case as we just talked about regarding what are the
6:40 am
facts regarding the investigation and if i were the president, i would fire mueller, the special prosecutor because it's very clear it doesn't look like he's going to be looking at the clinton uranium deal and all the issues relating to podesta and others who were involved with the russians you have to make that very clear. third and most importantly, the president has to clarify for himself and the american people, i would even say maybe national speech, maybe a prime time speech saying, these are the things that the american people have to understand about what his intentions are regarding russia and these are the false narrative things that need to go away. he's been very good about communicating and here he can do a superb job. maria: i don't know about firing mueller. that would create a huge ball of wax. >> fire him and replace him. this guy is not cutting it. he's not going to look at all the areas he should. maria: the left and the
6:41 am
mainstream media -- oh, yeah. kushner said he had four russian representatives, the much talked about 2016 meeting with that russian lawyer and his broarr donald -- brother-in-law, donald trump, jr. what is his explanation for having these meetings? anybody with meet with anybody at any time. >> that's the thing. i've been trying to look for a crime to meet the circumstances and it's nothing. during the campaign, maria, you're going to want to take information from every source and that includes the so-called lawyer. there's opposition information, i try to say on the other network and if you were obligated or in jared kushner's shoes or donald trump, jr.'s shoes, a foreign power said i have derogatory information on the other candidate, as an
6:42 am
american citizen, maria, you are obligated to listen because if there's something truly bad, you don't want the potential president of the united states to be blackmailed. it was simply part of the communication process, part of the education process of trying to consolidate information for purposes of advising then candidate now president trump. maria: i think you make a really good point. actually the president is tweeting right now. isn't that, mitch. he says the president just tweeting now, lieutenant, he says drain the swamp should be changed drain the sewer, much worse than anyone ever thought and begins with fake news. >> yeah. maria: drain the swamp was obviously the term that he got him in the white house partly because some of these lifers that are in government have stopped progress is basically the point of that drain the swamp, mitch. >> the word against government
6:43 am
bureaucracy. maria: yeah. lee: it's funny because he talks about that. he wasn't sure how it was going to go over. absolutely. maria: there's the first tweet of the morning, lieutenant colonel tony shaffer, what's your reaction to drain the swamp tweet? >> this is what we talk about consistently. the swamp is coming back at him right now. maria: yeah, good point. >> he's never going to be loved. he has to understand how to essentially go after the folks at their level and frankly the changes at the white house right now need to be designed to be more effect i have and not be blunt i think there are staffers in the white house who are not serving them well. one of the issues, people come in and talk about afghanistan, for example, a lot of the same-old hands who have essentially allowed us to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory 15 years ago are back advising him badly. it's time that he picked the right people to come in and help him win and not simply exist. maria: we will see about that.
6:44 am
lieutenant colonel, good to see you, tony shaffer joining us there. wild fires raging out west. back in a moment right here i am totally blind. and non-24 can throw my days and nights out of sync, keeping me from the things i love to do. talk to your doctor, and call 844-214-2424.

6:50 am
semiconductor chip? we will take a look.
6:51 am
6:52 am
6:53 am
maria: big news here. what do you think? a wisconsin company announced that it plans to install microchip in its employees but they are insisting there will be no gps tracking. tracee carrasco with the details. tracee: this is interesting. 3 square market, designs software for breakthrough markets, first in the u.s. to implant microchips in employees, employees will be able to make
6:54 am
purchases and open doors, log into computers and use the copy machine among other things by all scanning the chip which will be implanted between the thumb and fore finger under the skin. no larger than a grain of rice. this is the wave of the future. eventually it will be standardized allowing this to be used as passport, purchasing opportunities. data is encrypted and secure and the big question here is, will this chip also have a gps tracking system, the company says no, not yet. maria: why do they want them to have the chip in your body? tracee: to make it easier for companies, for the employees. maria: to track you. tracee: maybe within the building. [laughter] >> i think it's suppose for
6:55 am
access. tracee: convenience. maria: i will say this, there were clinical trials over the last decade or so where companies were putting a semiconductor chip in blood stream to let you know that you need to go to the doctor. go to the doctor, you're about to have a heart attack, your arteries are clogged. that technology has been happening for the last 10 to 15 years. this is something different. this is about you don't have to carry an id, come on. >> invasion of privacy. tracee: i agree. there's a company in sweden that has already done this with their employees and i think it would be hard to get other people, other companies here in the u.s., employees to agree to this. maria: yeah. would you agree? tracee: i wouldn't, no. i will carry my id.
6:56 am

6:57 am
questions out there but this shouldn't be one of them. maria: the problem as we continue to talk about this russia probe, with all of the hearings, it does put into question that and it almost race it is legitimacy of the president and that's what the left is trying to do. i mean, we are six months in. he's the president and he won fairly and squarely. what do you guys think? >> and live with it for the next three and a half years because that's the fact. maria: yeah. >> we need to get focused on policies and the agenda. you know, we need to move forward. maria: if the goal is economic growth, that's for sure. a couple's wedding gets emotionl you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends, three jobs... you're like nothing can replace brad. then liberty mutual calls...

maria: welcome back, good monday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo, it is monday july 24th, top stories right now 7:00 a.m. on the east coast. jared kushner getting grilled on capitol hill later today in prepared testimony he will tell lawmakers he had, quote, perhaps four contacts with russian representatives during presidential campaign an transition. he will reiterate that he did not collude with any foreign government. we have the embargo testimony, we have the latest coming up this morning. a warning for congressional republicans from the president with health reform at risk, former house speaker newt gringrich says lawmakers need to change the strategy now. >> like a football game at half time, as i've said to many
7:01 am
republican leaders, do you really want to repeat the last six months. everyone said to me, no, well, if you don't want to repeat it, you have to change. maria: newt gringrich has advice there. what's next in battle to overhaul obamacare. democrats trying to sell a new message, many are calling them out for borrowing a slogan from papa johns pizza, we will tell you about it. second quarter, it is the busiest week with more than a third of s&p 500 reporting earnings, now 13,000 components on cap. this week is a huge one. we are navigating that this morning. futures indicating lower opening. dow industrials 13 points, nasdaq and s&p 500 also negative. that slammed stocks, ftse down 1% and dax half a percent. in asia overnights, markets finished mostly higher as you can see there. finally good news for college students to report, tuition prices rising in slower pace in
7:02 am
decades. still rising. unbelievable win for jordan spieth, delivered some clutch shots on the back nine, we have the highlights coming up. the race everybody is waiting for michael phelps versus the shark, turns out the shark was fake. did we really think he was going to swim next to a shark? outrage coming up this morning. joining me to talk about cfr lindsey bell, pwc partner mitch roschelle and the president of maslansky + partners lee carter is here. lee: great to be here. >> the shark is fake? maria: i knew it was computer generated. so what did you think? >> the last time i was on i figured they would do something. lee: did shark week swrump -- jump the shark. maria: people are upset.
7:03 am
it wasn't a suicide run he was going on here. >> how do you get a shark to start and go straight? you can't control that. maria: the president say it is gop needs to do more. here is what he tweeted yesterday. it's very sad that republicans even some that were carried over the line on my dag -- bag do very lit toll protect their -- little to protect their president. i have to tell you, i have been asking the question, does the gop really want the president to be successful? here we are in the 11th hour in terms of getting health care done, in terms of health care reform, do you think the gop wants the president to be successful, sir? >> there are some in the party who are permanent dwellers of the swamp in dc who look at it and say, even if the president is in office for eight years, their life is in washington, they're going to be here long after he leaves town and i think
7:04 am
that they conduct themselves with that in mind. they want us to be doing what we told them we were going to do. there's part of that political class in washington who still to this say really accept it is president. maria: tell me what you're expecting from your colleagues in the senate. we are all trying to understand what they will be voting on? is it going to be repeal or a tweaked plan that they had initially in place to, you know, the better health care plan. once we do get a vote, what does that mean for your and your colleagues in the house? >> here is what i think, if you voted for something 18 months ago and the same bill was brought forward and you campaigned on it and you promised and repeal obamacare, then vote, yes, so we can do this thing. i don't understand -- i
7:05 am
understand that republicans that are always said they don't want to repeal obamacare, but you have some of the people who ran on repeal, voted to repeal multiple times and now are saying that somehow we can't do it. that's what frustrates republican voters to no end. lee: there's a lot of question of what they are going to vote this week, how are we going figure out what's going on? i think there's so many questions out there, i'm curious how you see it from your perspective? >> they are looking to get to 50 votes. they have a tight margin and you have the repeal only which repeals the taxes and the spending, that would then allow us to start legislating some of the replacement elements separately or you can do the bill that the senate was working on where you have repeal and replace. some like a repeal like rand
7:06 am
paul. either way, whichever one of those two they pass, when it comes to the house, the house will then pass the senate. i don't think you will see a long drawn-out conference committee. we need to bring certainty to this problem and if they have a path to 50 votes, then that'll be the path that finds its way through the house. >> do these republicans realize that 35% of americans, this is a bloomberg survey view this health care issue as the biggest issue that the country faces ahead of jobs, ahead of russia, ahead of all of the other things? if this doesn't get done, what does it do to the republican near term and in the longer term. i know some of the senators aren't really worried about repeal -- voting against the repeal and replace because they aren't up for election for three to five years. >> well, i'm glad that you pointed that statistic, you go to washington and the only issue in the country is russia, russia, that's what the media wants to talk about.
7:07 am
it's not what most voters want to talk about. i think jobs and health care are very important. 80-plus percent of the people want total repeal or major overhaul. 20% of the american people that think is fine as is, leave it or very minor tweaks. that's the mandate that we have to address a core concern of the american voter, look, there are things in the bill i wished it was bolder in certain respects, but you have to come to a consensus and now is the time to do it and the house, we should not be leaving on a five-week recess if health care is not finished. i think that that sends a terrible signal to the american people and we have to use all the time that's available to us, you don't give up five weeks and then complain that you just didn't have enough time to do your work. maria: i agree. >> congressman, 73% of those who were in obamacare would voluntarily opt out if they didn't have the mandate, how
7:08 am
widely appreciated is that amongst your colleagues that this is something that they're being forced to do as opposed something that they want to do? >> it seems it's not appreciated as much as it should be. some of my colleagues take the cbo numbers as gospel. i think that's a big mistake. they are based on a lot of implausible assumptions. free program for the recipient, not the taxpayer, but to the recipient that if you don't have an individual mandate that they would voluntarily relinquish. you will have 8 million more people on the exchanges next january than right now. nobody believes that. i think you have to look at the stuff and take analysis, read it but take it with a grain of salt. maria: i think it's a very important question that mitch asked because we have been
7:09 am
hearing the cbo scoring for a week about how 22 million people are going to be without health insurance and that's because 23% of the people will opt out, they no longer have the gun to their head, no longer face a fine if they don't get insurance and people don't understand that. it's a real criticism to throw out there, 20 million people without insurance and it's dishonest because -- >> that's why if you look at the cbo's analysis, full repeal of obamacare, the house bill, which is repeal, replace, the senate bill which is repeal and replace which has hundreds of billions of dollars, the uninsured is all the same for precisely the reason you say, if you take away the mandate, that's like 15, 16 million, the other, i think, big chunk of that is they are projecting future enrollment in obamacare which is unrealistic and simply won't happen, so that's millions and millions of people as well, so when you look at really how they're doing it, it's not really strong in terms
7:10 am
of their analysis. >> who's most important to you in the freedom caucus that must be in this bill? >> well, for me it's people need relief from the high premiums, high deductibles. i don't want government-centered care. i want people to be able to choose different plans and states should be able to experiment, have high-deductible health plans and that's the way that you will see a downward pressure on the prices, but if we don't do anything about the affordability and it's obamacare driving thu through the roof for people, i don't think you're addressing the core concern that people have with obamacare. lee: so many people -- we are talking about choice on the republican side. the democrats are talking about whether or not people are going to live or die, right, they are going into this really scary place, how do you talk about people of what they're going to get beyond just choice? >> understand how choice works.
7:11 am
you had some people that i've spoken with who were suffering from serious illnesses, when they got put on obamacare plan, they no longer had access to their preferred doctors and there's family members that they didn't do as well as they had hoped. this does have real consequences, if it's government mandating and if you're at the whim of government bureaucracy, you will have less opportunities for you and your family. maria: if we don't get health care done before the timing after the august recess, before you guys go for august recess, would you go to tax cuts and forget the overall reform? you have to get something done legislatively this year. you can't get health care done this year, would you move to tax cuts and cut taxes if you can't get reform done? >> i'm not giving up on health
7:12 am
care, but, maria, you put a tax cut in front of me, the republican party was put on this earth to cut taxes so i will support that but i don't think you want to give up health care, i think you to keep it all there and i think we are at an an inflection point. you provide for border wall. he put neil gorsuch on the supreme court. we could be sitting here october talking and that could be very successful. it's almost like the jordan spieth golf round. nobody remember it is -- remembers the boogies. we are at inflection point where we can be in a situation by the end of the fall where people are back and say, man, this president has been more successful domestically than any president since ronald reagan. maria: we will come back to it and talk again, obviously.
7:13 am
congressman good to talking to you. congressman ron desantis. first coming up next more problem for tekata to report. biggest recall in automotive history and then college savings, why universities are reining in tuition after decades of surging expenses for students. back in a minute.
7:14 am
7:15 am
7:16 am
maria: welcome back, investigation is underway after a report tekata air bags. lauren simonetti with the story. lauren. lauren: unbelievable, consumer watchdog is seeking information from car makers after a magazine reported that recall tekata air bags were replaced by get this faulty air bags as a temporary solution. the magazine says those air bags would need to be recalled again. tekata air bags have been linked to 18 deaths worldwide.
7:17 am
this is another problem for the company. there is some surprising news about the cost of higher education, i think, you're going to like it, the wall street journal reporting that, yes, tuition is growing but at the slowest pace in decades after skyrocketing 400% over the past three decades. tuition climbed 1.9% this year in line with overall inflation. one reason is not surging is that enrollment is down and some colleges are even offering discounts or cutting prices. well, two marines tied the knot over the weekend and it was the groom's 4-year-old son who stole the show. >> i want you to be safe and to try your hardest and to be a good person. don't cry. [laughter] lauren: marines sergeant said, i do, look at him. he started to cry and he hugged his stepmom. wrapped his arms around her and
7:18 am
both of the newly weds are still on active military duty which, maria, means their honeymoon will have to wait. i wonder if they are going to take gage with them. maria: treating the side effects of the treatment. we will talk to creators of innovative new app helping patients cope with equipment -- chemotherapy
7:19 am
7:20 am
7:21 am
7:22 am
maria: welcome back, new innovative app is shaping the future of cancer care. helps track mood, conditions and symptoms which allow them to share with their doctors. this results in more personalized treatment and helps chemotherapy patient that is better manage the side effects, we want to bring in the creator and partner who is a former spokesperson to u.s. embassadors to the un, fox news contributor and cancer survivor himself. great to see you both. thank you so much if joining us. we wanted to do the segment because it's helped you, rick. >> yeah. imagine going through six rounds of chemo not really knowing what to do, i was healthy when i got the diagnosis but i quickly found that medications an the side effects, how much water i was drinking all could effect me in a positive way because matt was actually mapping this out on
7:23 am
an excel spreadsheet and showing the process to the doctor at the city of hope, steven foreman and he was shocked at the -- the data that he could get from matt's creation. maria: amazing, we use data with everything else, matt, you created chemo wave after seeing rick fight for his life. tell us how chemo wave works? >> it gives control to patients in a seemingly out of control situation, in the u.s. alone 1.7 million patients are diagnosed with cancer every year and each one of them is different and this app chemo wave aims to help understand what is connected to their highs and lows through correlation analysis we can help them understand if there's a medication that might be causing them to have a certain side effect or the impact of exercise or how much water they are drinking, how beneficial that is.
7:24 am
maria: when you're sick and it, the doctors tell you to drink more water and you don't do it. >> right. >> when you go into the doctor's appointment and you say how are you feeling and you really only tell how you're feeling that day and you forget the week before and two weeks prior, what the app does is really take with you into this appointment a spreadsheet of how you've done on medication, maybe a visit from a loved one who picked you up. medication side effects are enormous and no one is able to keep track of this but the app really does. >> we have been working on this for three years. we are excited that it launched over two weeks ago for free on i tunes and now we are focused on getting it available for people with android phones because the more data that we collect, the more we will able to help clinical trial companies with
7:25 am
patient centric innovation. maria: what data was most important from your standpoint? when you look at all of the data collected, what was most important in educating you on what's going on? >> the dirty little secret is that most of the side effects caused by chemo therapy can be managed and patients have options and the way that society is set up, it can be such an overwhelming experience. this empowers them to take control, so whether it's exercise, was a big one for rick, 30 minutes a day, he could actually see how much better he felt not just on the day of but on days following and when you're in that situation sometimes it's hard to get out of bed but when you can see that quantified it really motivates to get you out of bed. >> sometimes exercise was going to the mailbox, literally, i couldn't get out of bed but i could go to the mailbox and felt empowered, wow, getting up, drinking water, going to the mailbox made me feel better. >> another big thing was medications.
7:26 am
you know, rick responded negatively to an antinausea medication. patients need to understand that there's options and chemowave needs to understand them what the options are. maria: you actually changed behavior as a result of what you were learning, you exercised more, you did different things. >> at first, i thought, what are you doing, you're asking me all the questions, but as soon as i saw the benefit, as soon as i saw that i could help control this wave of chemotherapy going through me, i started giving more information and changing behavior. i really maximized my treatment. maria: where do you think we are in the fight against cancer, matt? >> we are making progress and our hope is that chemowave will catalyze the progress being made. maria: well, that's the hopeful part of it because this is such a killer that we all watch every day effect our loved ones, before we go, rick, i want to
7:27 am
ask you about the speculation out there. it's been report that had the president has offered you the job to embassador to germany, you accepted? >> the only thing that will i say right now, i'm very supportive of the president and where he wants to put me, i will gladly receiver him and the american people. maria: would that something that you would like to be embassador to germany? >> diplomacy has always been something that i'm interested in. i think if you want to avoid war, if you want to avoid military action, you have to be for diplomatic muscle and i think we need more diplomats who are muscular in their forcefullness in trying to represent the united states. maria: we sure do. matt, congratulations to you. thanks for your great service. chemowave is the company. rick and matt lachey. customer comes to the rescue during armed rescue at starbucks, the stunning video. take a look at this as he took down the thief and in search of

7:33 am
to another tagline that of papa john's 350eza slogan better gritty better pizza papa jones, debut a day after senate minority leader chuck schumer midst party had he he says to proclaim for losses in the 2016 election. >> when you lose on a election, with someone who has say 40 popularity you say what did we do wrong the number one thing that we did wrong is we didn't have we didn't tell people whoa we stood for entoday week after week month after month going to roll out specific pieces here that are quite different than the democratic party you heard in the past we were too cautious we were tieu namby-pamby. >> joining us ceo apple metro zane good to see you they want better future better wages do you think the democrats have the best interests of the small business owner like yourself? >> i am not assure they ever did very honestly, it is
7:34 am
camouflaged in having the interests of the people but if you look at what end result is maria at the end of the day, he stressing businesses particularly small of businesses more and more and more, by piling on piling on piling on how does that help the s consumer how does that help the person at the end of the day? >> just to o look practicable speaking talking about better wages they want the minimum wage to go up off the bat that is in contrast to what you are trueing to do if you raise he minimum wage you have to fire other people. >> fire a hard we word to say you need a certain number to work through on the other hand i say higher wages are technology's best friend it is prohibitive as they drive wage up and up camouflaged as helping people camouflaged because think about this the only person that gets help if he gets help, is the working
7:35 am
person those that are unemployed minimum wage could be 100 dollars a hour doesn't matter. >> good point. >> if it is 100 dollars an hour, guess what that labor force slashed and dashed, all the way down where it becomes, not prohibitive but economical. >> one thing the mandate portion of obamacare. >> yes? >> and if that disappeared do you think would change behavior of like employees like yours, who now have some choices in terms of what to do with money. >> it most definitely will we watched it happen, you start finding people you take money out of circulation, to put back into the government, the research they deem should be research related you are hurting k consumer the provider hurting the company itself, so sure, it is if -- i can tell you the data, the first year, most everybody
7:36 am
took to find only 60 dollars, the second year went i think to 250, we had 3,000 employees mind you we had, 100 sign up, the third year went to 695 i believe, don't quote me object -- don't quote me on that 200, out of 3,000. >> 200 people paying 700 dollars for nothing all other folks that have opted just not to go in they just -- it is picking consumer's pocket i don't look at it as my staff or my population as much as 700 dollars, is probably two visits a month to applebee's all other people paying fines have stressed our space in terms of of the restaurant industry because that money is out of circulation. >> discretionary money they don't have. >> exactly, exactly, it is you snow not fair, to fine people for something they don't want to do.
7:37 am
and i don't know the solution, i might add, now this is baked into the economy baked into people's expectations everyone want to get rid of i it say it wait a minute that comes out of my pocket on the one hand, so on the other hand, nobody is really looking at the trajectory that i am aware of, the actuaries to say if we continue along the obamacare i hate obamacare, about affordable health care act i don't want to give eliminate credit for it. if we continue along the track where is it going to piebd up it is 30 count with zero, are. >> there so you have to do it you have to do it. maria: let me ask you about tax reform because as a small business owner, you must be expecting the needle will move if in fact taxes come down small business owners are launching a nationwide campaign, with are former if house speaker newt gingrich i know to pressure congress to pivot to tax reform we have
7:38 am
been talking about all year the group pointing to a survey showing small business owners want tax relief more unfortunately than they want to repeal of obamacare does that in step ep with a what you want. >> insure i did some data on that maria. i have said that, by the way,. and data on that is we know when the tax returns when tax refunds come through our business you can graph it just like this new money in pockets we gear up like for christmas, or for mother's day when -- >> getting checks. >> if they come late, we are sort of overstaffed for a week or two waiting for those checks to come late but when they arrive, i can tell you the day in mailboxes, lasts like that about two weeks, so think about this. if we had tax reform, and we had more money in their pockets, we would be staffed up for the whole year. of the but -- but having jobs, creating jobs, having said
7:39 am
that, i am not sure how one comes to reform taxes without having a entity with health care costs you don't have that line-item on budget. >> why they wanted to do it first. >> you almost have to do it first. >> voluntary interconnected for you small business owner tax cut or tax reform more important or tax cut -- >> i think they are baked in together how do you cut the taxes when you don't know what the line-item for health care is? how k you do that without having that budget number? so or an idea budget number, and we were chatting in the greenroom nobody that i have seen has called together, this four basic insurers united health care, aetna a couple nobody called convened a meeting of four guys say how do you envision this going down you got a bunch of "politico" worrying about next election deciding our future
7:40 am
