government federal government employees. there are ships that are docking now. they have to first open up the ports around puerto rico before you can get the ships in. when i say open up the ports it's not just the damage to the cranes and all of the moving equipment but you also have to make sure there are no hazards to navigation of things that have been blown off or floated off that docks and are now sitting in the water below the surface that can't see. so it is a matter of getting thing down there and when people are in the terrible conditions that they're living in now nothing is ever going to be fast enough. it won't be. >> lodgistly how does pentagon do this you have areas in the mountains that people are running out of food. i mean, do air drops you know what type of -- strategic logistical plan would you recommend? >> sure, well right now there are four major airports in puerto rico. the northwest corner, the international airport san juan

brackets into three are a rates of 12, 25, and 35%. but it doesn't define the income rages for these tax brackets. it would double the standard deduction for married couples to $24,000 and for single filers to there are 12,000. it also call for e religious of several itemized deductions but some political experts say the president's plan is expected to face the same partisan split that the obamacare repeal deal had john saying in a column for fox, quote, sadly i don't believe that most of the efforts to soften bill image will win much democratic support it's enough of a red flag for liberal base of the democratic party that this is the trump tax bill. as with health care he's likely going to have to rely on republican vote. john is here a columnist for national review, so john, let's get right to. would you say that tax experts would assess this as a comprehensive tax plan? and who benefits immediately and
2:29 pm
down the road and conversely who would take the hit immediate lis and down the road? >> it is a tax frabbingwork a lot of details are not loom yet. trump is smart muff to say i think safe to say and fill many those details but in the broad strokes biggest wins are american businesses especially american business with parks overseas not brought them home because of high corporate tax breaks we have the highest initial tax break in the world. >> they have businesses back here. >> tax at a lower rate but stay in the united states and perhaps be invested for new jobs and all of that. the biggest losers, are some people who itemize there are a lot of people who itemize state and local taxes. if that goes away, they're going to lose out especially in high tax states like new york, california, illinois. >> explain to us. >> when you itemize you get to deduct state and local taxes from federal tax burden. means you lower your burden.
2:30 pm
if that deduction is taken away, basically doesn't matter how high your state and local taxes you're going to have to pay that without deducting it. so it's going to cost you. the other big are in the long front is the long-term tax preparation of this passes right now in the 90, 90% of people need help on their taxes. 40% itemized. if this bill passed the best guesses would be only 10% of people would find it to itemize, that means a lot of tax preparers will be out of business. that's not a bad thing. >> i have friends from who were tax preparers. you can retrain them. >> let me show you a brand new fox news poll, the looking at the percent of voters saying, it has extremely or very important that congress pass each when you look at health care reform, you've got 58%. tax reform 52% so john if the senate budget committee can get
2:31 pm
lawmakers to sign u off on this 51 yes votes to pass, which, of course, we already know did not work for the place, will the gop support trump taxes? >> i think there will be some defections. partly because, of course, any tax cuts since we have a progressive code more of the benefits will go to the wealthy than to the middle class because that's a progressive tax system but there will be some democrats who will be tempghted by this there's a lot of dhts who represent companies and democrat senators want to create jobs in their states some kind of comprehensive tax reform bill and we haven't had one in 31 years? >> why is that? >> that we vice president had tax reform in 35 years it is very difficult is that -- >> lobbyists k street, you have 15,000 lobbyists each with their own individual piece of the tax code. it is become a cottage industry it is one of the reason why is washington -- >> like you said tax preparers
2:32 pm
who are out of o business why not lobbyists put out of the business? >> you have to start somewhere and a simplifying to 3 rates to get rid of deductions at least a start. you know, whether you're a democrat or republican when you drain the swamp you have to start pump somewhere and you have to recognize you're not going to use pumps to drain everything right away. >> but you know people -- you've got people who are in our audience who run are businesses, large businesses small businesses, you also have a lot of individuals who are looking out for themselves rightly so. so what do you say to -- to the notion that this will mainly benefit the really wealthy? >> well as i said, because we have a progressive tax system, that's almost inevitable, however, this tax does take a lot of people right off the tax role. 34,000 after deduction for the couple to remove half of the american people from having to pay a filling out a tax form. that's a big step forward in terms of tax simplification
2:33 pm
nothing more than not filling out a tax form. >> will not have to -- >> they will not have a liability at the end. they will basically not earn enough if at 24,000 deduction plus other deductions remain in place like mortgage and charitable deductions. so that means for instance they won't owe uncle sam come tax time but a refund? >> because of our negative mechanic system 8 million americans right now who are working get a check from are uncle sam because we're trying to encourage work not welfare. so you get a check at the end of the year an money back more than anything you pay in. >> john fun, we are out of time but thank you for trying to break it dun and short amount of time that we did have. absolutely good to see you john fun national review magazine. eric. eric: thank you. information on the two massive rock falls yosemite national park that killed one man and injured at least two others this

andrew and lucy foster here from the u.k. on an anniversary vacation climbing elle can tan and large piece fell off reports show that andrew died trying to save his wife he's sh critical condition. geologists say there's no way to know when this could happen. >> no it's not possible to predict rock falls. predicting rock pal means you know exactly where it will occur and exactly when it will occur and how big that rock are fall will be and we're a long way from being able to determine all of those things and make a prediction. >> some visitors this week say they're feeling less aggressive about climbing planning to be a little more conservative about their adventure but more of a game of chance. >> you really hope bad things don't happen to you but i feel more likely to be struck by a car stapgding on this road right now than i do to be killed by -- rock falling you know? >> eric, according to park records more people die from actually falling or natural causes like heart attacks than

2:42 pm
year. we have advice president of spg senior vice president there and form offer station chief for the ceia specializes in counterintelligent cyberinvestigations. i mean, everyone is not going oops you know they're saying look at all of this stuff. thousands and thousands of ads first of all why wasn't this detengted by twitter or by facebook during the election? >> you know, these attacks took place in the runup to our election and during the election. incident response phase is still ongoing that's disconcerts in good cyberscut you want to do the forensics and mount minutes and we fail to do that in this case the delay is disconcerting i'm not so sure that twitter and a facebook and some of the other social media and networking sites have the capability effectively to track those introduces. fnlings do you count this and is this considered a -- cyberattack? i mean people you hear about that you think of so much on a
2:43 pm
coming in and personal id being stolen financial information, being stolen. but by planting news stories potentially intended to effect an election you consider that a counterintelligence assault on this country? >> i do. i think it's part of russia's counterintelligence strategy. look social networking and media sites have become the back bone in critical infrastructure for our modern democratic process. and aside from introducing this information into our election campaign which had i expect them to do again in the future, i think russia also sought to degrade the public's trust in these media sites in the united states, and a the west at launch but also in russia. because putin is looking at the elections in russia and 2018 and march and he knows his own opponents were protesting years ago and 2011 and 2012 with assistance of americaing sites. so, i mean, it seems they were very sophisticated washington
2:44 pm
reports that 3,000 ads 3,000 were aimed at for example, supporters with black lives matter. that they have some type of black lives matter ad specifically in ferguson and baltimore remember that troubles there. others aimed at muslims or people who didn't like muslims according to the post. they really have -- an apparent sophisticated political operation here. >> i think the message is -- that they deliveredded were very sophisticated and indicate a deep understanding of our internal domestic political situation. however, i think means of delivery was not necessarily so sophisticated it was discoverable, and would cause me concern is that while we may have discovered some o of russia's intrusions in our cyberspace there may be others out will with far more sophisticated clandestine technique to find nor difficult to detect. >> any evidence that you know of far that there was any coordination that nay knew where to go and who to target.
2:45 pm
for example, we have learned that there 21 states aparticipay voter registration roles were tarlgts of some type of cyberattacks. was there an east to try to get the voter registration information of voters and then target ads to them to try to enforce election? >> i think that's a great question to ask that would certainly be high on list of intelligence requirement and they would be eminently capable with large presence in this country to obtain that intelligence whether they need to do is clandestinely or hack into our -- election infrastructure to do so. you know there's probably lots of avenues for them to collect that intelligence. >> local state officials say they have no evidence that anything was successful but certainly at least they tried. mark disuker bring in had this view see if this response is sufficient. >> we will strengthen our own ad review process for political ad.
2:46 pm

3:00 pm
>> we start with a fox news alert. a tense situation unfolding in puerto rico. it is growing more dire by the minute. and a growing controversy over the emergency response. president trump today hitting back after the mayor of san juan spoke out angrily claiming the administration has not done nearly enough and is not able to get vital supplies to the island that has been decimated and devastated by hurricane maria. hello everyone good evening i am eric shawn. this is a brand-new hour of trent a. >> everyone i am arthel neville. tempers flaring as much as the us territory is still without power. they are desperately waiting
3:01 pm
for an influx of supplies. now the president is lashing out on twitter. just days before he visits the ravaged island.kristin fisher is live in new jersey near the presidents golf club in bedminster. >> hello. remember president trump is said to travel to puerto rico and the us virgin islands on tuesday. the vice president will be going there a little bit later in the week but the president's trip is certainly shaping up to be a little awkward and a lot more uncomfortable than just a few hours ago because of what he has been saying about the mayor of san juan on twitter. he has devoted about 12 tweets today about the crisis in puerto rico and many of them have been aimed at the mayor of san juan. here is one of them quote - such poor leadership ability by the mayor of san juan. and others in puerto rico were not able to get their workers to help. they want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 federal workers now on
3:02 pm
the island. doing a fantastic job. the white house really trying to push the argument that you know they have done something. they have sent supplies.they have sent resources. and they will continue to do more. but the fact remains that right now millions of people in puerto rico do not have power, clean water, food or access to medical supplies. in the mayor san juan says that that is what prompted her to use the language she used last night that led to all of these tweets from president trump today. listen. >> i will do what i never thought i was going to do. i am begging, begging anyone that can hear us. to save us from dying. if anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying! and you are killing us with the inefficiency. and the bureaucracy.
3:03 pm
>> today, the president spent the day new jersey at his golf club in bedminster. we took some calls about this unfolding crisis in puerto rico. he spoke with the fema director, the vice president met with the director at fema headquarters. and the president spoke with the governor of puerto rico whom he called a great guy and a great leader. when president trump hits the ground there on tuesday, he certainly has some friends on the ground though it remains unclear whether or not the mayor of san juan will be meeting with him at that time as well. something else that we are watching today, this is another story, a story that starts although on the other side of the world. secretary of state, rex tillerson, making an announcement saying that the trump administration has direct lines of communication with pyongyang, with the north korean leaders and that they no
3:04 pm
longer are going through china. the state department says that they set up the lines weeks ago during discussions about auto warm beer, bringing him back to the us. just because these lines are there, and open, it does not mean they are actively being used to communicate with north korean leader kim jong on. but still, the fact that you have someone very high up in the trump administration like the secretary of state saying that these lines do exist and that they are there, should negotiations or should the situation reach a point where negotiations could begin, that in and of itself certainly is a step in the right direction. >> indeed it is, kristin fisher, thank you. >> and they say that they are sending world to puerto rico at this hour. an additional 1400 national guard troops are heading to the island this weekend. more than 3 million people
3:05 pm
there remain cut off from basic necessities. things we take for granted, electricity, food, water. some folks have run out of medicine. it is being called a looming humanitarian crisis that needs urgent help. mike is live in san juan with very latest this evening. hi mike. >> to make matters worse, rain is returning to the island because of that, the governor is turning attention to the dam which is two hours outside of san juan. it was damaged during hurricane and the water there never really receded so earlier today the governor said that people that live below that damn need to have a plan to evacuate. >> the people in the surrounding areas that have evacuated, to maintain the level of preparedness that recognize that there could be damage to the dam. >> the latest numbers to 33
3:06 pm
percent of telecom is restored, half of water services are working again but the big problem is still power. only five percent of power is restored to the entire island and the army corps of engineers is trying to lower expectation of the lights will be turned on anytime soon. 51 of 69 hospitals that service 3.4 million people around puerto rico are open again. but only nine of them are back on the electrical grid. most are using electrical generators that are only meant to be temporary solutions. they run out of fuel events -- eventually they break down. that that here live i want to show you the scene because it is typical of what you are seeing in so much of puerto rico. behind me we have lines, power and cable lines down. standing water all over the place. the water is putrid and smells very bad. there are bugs coming out of the water. we have debris all over the place as well.
3:07 pm
next to me, this house with the metal roofing is pretty common, particularly in the poor just did not stand a chance we have a slow-moving category four hurricane just parking itself really and grind its way over puerto rico. it peeled this stuff up the way it does to mobile homes during a tornado. >> that can be so dangerous. we can hear the generator that you are using because there is no electricity. thank you for your live reports. >> health and human services secretary, tom price, stepping down after criticism over his use of expensive private charter flights. price had promised a partial repayment but it could not save his job. ellison barber is in washington with more. >> there are new protocols if you are member of the trump administration and planning to travel.on friday the white house budget director mick mulvaney sent a memo to the heads of executive departments and agencies saying in part, any travel on government or
3:08 pm
chartered airplanes need proper approval by chief of staff, john kelly. the memo came just hours after the resignation of the secretary tom price. the week and and a half ago, political reported on the now former secretaries use of private airplanes. they say he used private charter planes at least 24 times beginning in may costing taxpayers over $300,000. christ said he would pay back the cost of his seat on those flights. around $52,000. but after that, political found more questionable flights. christ defended the flights on special reports the day before he resigned. >> these trips were approved through the normal was deemed appropriate and that was the necessary way to be able to make my other obligations within the department to request the president publicly of rest disappointment and price. >> i am not happy, okay?
3:09 pm
i can tell you i am not happy. >> price submitted his resignation letter and our leader. and ryan zinke is reported to have taken a number of flights on private or military airplanes. one from nevada to an airport near his home in montana reportedly cost taxpayers more than $12,000. >> ellison barber, thank you. >> guess what? o.j. simpson. he hopes to call florida his new home. he is supposed to be released from prison in nevada and now we are told that guess what? it could come as early as midnight tonight. as for moving to the sunshine state, the attorney general, pam bondi says mr. simpson, make other plans. do not come here. we will have the latest on that and what could happen. plus san juan's mayor responded to the president's twitter attack against her after the angry comments she made about the trump administration hurricane maria relief efforts.

3:15 pm
san juan's mayor carmen cruz with an angry tweets storm. with the ability to get vital supplies to puerto rico ravaged by hurricane maria. the president sank in one of his tweets today quote, the mayor of san juan he was very complementary only a few days ago, has not been told by the democrats that you must be nasty to tromp. she later responded to the president's comments. let's listen. >> i was asking for help. i was not saying anything nasty about the president. but don't take my word for it. general buchanan, three-star general has said is one of the first time as he has made about the puerto rico situation, and he does not have enough troops and equipment to get the situation under control. >> the mayor adding that she is willing to meet with the president when he visits puerto rico on tuesday if you're
3:16 pm
joining us now we have a senior editor and roll call, thank you for being here. as you know, the president is scheduled to meet with the governor but will the president meet with the mayor even though she says i am willing to meet with him, should he? should he meet with the mayor? >> gosh, i am not going to give the president advice. but you know, sure that would be the politically easiest thing to do more the politically right thing to do. but the president has been a deposit every political convention and his numbers do not seem to go much lower than where they are. he certainly is doing that again this time. he is waiting you know, just on puerto rico, he is waiting 12 days between when the storm made landfall, 12 days and two weekends at his resort before going to puerto rico. that is breaking a political convention. he set up front, he changed his mind in the end but he set up front that he wasn't going to
3:17 pm
change this or do it a president can do to make shipping easier back and forth from puerto rico. the shipping lobbyist did not like it. he blamed the victim, the puerto rican government themselves said that they sort of brought the depths of the storm on themselves because of their bad infrastructure and now he is picking a political twitter fight with the mayor who was trying to confront a humanitarian crisis. so he defies every convention and yet as we all know, he seems to hold steady right where he has been in the polls. >> david, we played the clip of the mayor explain what she meant. considering the desperate situation that prevailed in puerto rico, did the president take the mayor's plea and criticism to personally perhaps? >> it seems like he does tend to take criticism personally, yes. this is part of a pattern. where even the slightest, the slightest crossing of the president seems to be responded
3:18 pm
with the response seems to be as i think he described it at the top, a to twitter storm. this is the president pattern. will it be a political downside for him? i guess we do not know. i mean certainly, the delayed response to katrina was probably one of the most memorable things about george w. bush's second term in office. many more people remember that than medicare prescription drug coverage. by traditional standards, this might be a big problem for him. but it is also the case to be candid, that half of the country does not even have you know half of the population when asked his name know that puerto rico is part of the united states. so politically, maybe not a problem. >> well now we all know because of this disaster. how can the president best take advantage of his visit to puerto rico in terms of helping the residents in dire need and
3:19 pm
the benefit of his administration and leadership? >> i think your traditional way would be to stop being personally critical and emulate when he was able to do in florida and in texas where the response was different and the president, it took him a couple of tries to be honest when he first went to texas the first time, his response was widely labeled as impersonal, the second time were so, one would think that going down to puerto rico, making clear that he understands it is part of the united states, it is a big place. if it were a state, puerto rico would be the same size of connecticut, bigger than iowa. it would have five customers and two senators. it is not a small place. it is not likely as virgin islands which he will also visit. this is a considerable place with a very complex politics and culture and he would probably do well to learn about that and embrace it and sounds like he is well-versed. >> you already said that the
3:20 pm
president's case likes his in-your-face style via twitter. is there anyone in this or inner-circle or inside the republican party who feels that perhaps at some point, the wrong treatment might cause -- >> we had talked about some of these in the last several months and going back to when he was a candidate we talk about john mccain and i like veterans who were not captured more than a year ago. this is the story of his rise to national prominence, it has been one of defined expectations of making these moves time and time again and not suffering irreparable damage.>> thank you very much david senior editor of roll call and providing objective
3:21 pm
analysis without criticizing the president or anyone else. thank you very much. >> thank you arthel. >> and their political root compression slimming from major win for the former alabama chief justice. he won for last week. more from luther strange. senator strange had a major fundraising advantage and also had the strong backing and endorsement of the president. but this victory as some republicans now are wondering what it means for the gop going into the midterms. and if a civil war is about to break out between the republican establishment, trumps supporters and other trump supporters. republicans who do not think that republicans get enough done can look to alabama and the roy moore model. >> you will see state after state after state, people follow the model of judge morphy that do not need to
3:22 pm
raise money from the elites. >> and steve bannon is already meeting with conservative candidates that may want to challenge next year. they include dean heller in nevada, roger wicker in mississippi, fisher and -- who they guess could avoid a challenge by retiring. >> i think their guys will take a look at the numbers and who is potentially running and i think guys like flake. there was some polling and i think they will also throw in the towel. >> but flake sees alabama's primary result is a different kind of opportunity. one for incumbents who condemned the winner judge moore.her previous comments hostile to homosexuality and where keith ellison should not serve in congress because he is a muslim. >> tried to apply a religious test, that is not right. and republicans ought to stand up and say this is not right. >> also distancing itself from work, the white house he wants
3:23 pm
to help if elected. present was it was a we do not agree with those comments. >> we go with the president of the senate leadership fund which tries to get republicans elected believes outsiders have all the leverage. in a memo obtained by the maritimes essay the american congress has replaced president obama as the bogeyman for gop -- >> if you get tagged as a candidate of the leadership of the congress that the republicans in congress, you are doomed. >> leader mcconnell is now seen with skepticism from colleagues across the capital. today congressman mark walker in charge of the republican study committee and is 150+ members told us that somewhat would be happy if mcconnell retired. >> looks like we are in for a wild ride! >> president trump and the republicans on capitol hill looking for a legislative win

at the yosemite national park with two massive rock falls killing one man and injuring at least two others. the incident is now sparking new questions about how this could be prevented. we are live in denver with more. >> hello. scientists are saying that rockslides are much more common than many of us may even realize. according to geologists at yosemite national park, on average, the park sees about 80
3:29 pm
rockslides per year. but many of them are small and do not hurt anyone.this past week was far outside the norm. on thursday a giant piece of granite peeled away from the famous el capitan question more than 400 feet below. and below was jim evans, his wife into family members who they were in an suv. all are okay number jim ended up in the hospital after some of the debris came through their sunroof. geologists say that the slab that those 400 feet tall and 100 feet wide. this woman heard the whole thing. >> like bombs going off! it just echoes through the valley anyway. it was, concerning how far away it was it was very loud. >> the day before, a smaller but also giant piece of rock came off of el capitan while people were climbing. one was killed trying to save his wife. she is now in critical condition. scientists say there is no way to warn folks of an imminent
3:30 pm
fall and no way to protect one is about to happen. >> each event is a learning opportunity and we are studying the events in detail to try and understand the sequence and what happened. >> again, geologists say when slabs of granite detached it is all part of the natural life of the rock. moisture gets in the cracks and forces the rock to expand and contract with hot and cold temperatures. eventually, something will give. >> rock falling is something i will always be there. you can minimize it by being aware of your surroundings but you cannot eliminate it completely. >> a lot of climbers say that they are undeterred. they're still going to go out there and climb. >> okay, thank you! >> back in washington, the president has been rolling out the plans for tax reform this week. now congressional republicans are gearing up for another legislative battle with democrats. and our next guest is a
3:31 pm
republican congressman from arizona to the washington times in his view the democratic collins will oppose the president almost anything and everything says quote - the democrats understand the different need for the economic growth but it almost make it clear, they all cannot say that for a microphone. what would be actually good for workers might also be good for the president. if anything that is good that is present if you're a democrat, you cannot embrace. what does this mean for tax reform and other legislative issues? weird lines now with the congressman from scottsdale. let's start with healthcare. it already failed twice under republicans. are you confident that the tax reform can be achieved without any democratic votes? >> look, it would wonderful to have some of our brothers and sisters from the left helping us. but as one democrat who is one of my buddies, was explaining to me, his left is so cantankerous right now that he
3:32 pm
does not even want to have a photo taken next to me. because he has trouble explaining that to his face. and look, you are desperately hoping a number from our moderates and conservatives on both sides of the party will put their blinders on and do is really good for the country. instead of sort of pandering to the politics. >> you have a point there? what is it like for you when you are dealing you know when you go to the clouds and may have a drink or talk to each other and the families. i mean, what is it like when the american people, we just want something done. we want it done right. >> it is interesting. yesterday morning, early in the morning i had a coffee. i have will call this a little working group with five or six folks that are genuinely on the left. as they all say, none of them have ever voted for me. but they're good to sit down with and understand where their heads are at. and i gave them a presentation on the tax reform and how incredibly important it was to get this economic growth in our
3:33 pm
society. if we are going to be able to pay our social entitlement. a decade or so from now you know, the masses really ugly. they all knew this. they knew the numbers, but the common response back is they did not want president trump to have something that look like -- >> he has tainted it in their view. >> they saw through a lens of president trump and so for those of us on the ways and means committee trying to grind out the numbers, to make this as fair, simple and progrowth for our communities as possible, you sort of wish there was a way to strip some of the crazy rhetoric and politics away and do math. i know a lot of us that republicans summit accountants. but on occasion you need the adults to step in and make the math work. >> so how did this math work? some would say the republicans said the same thing to president obama. some that is. they are refusing to work with
3:34 pm
him and deal with him. so how can both sides come together to get something done because there is now a tax plan with a lot in it? >> this is a big deal.this is far beyond just tax cuts. we are rewriting a substantial portion of 68,000 pages. the good news i can give you is, the ways and means committee actually has some very smart senior democrats on it that are really good to work with. it does not mean i will get their vote in committee for a vote on the floor but we will get their input. and hopefully, that input, the fact that we are listening will mitigate some of the shall we say, there is more extreme rhetoric. >> we say you'll get the input, but they may not work for it. how does that work? the goal is to try and get this thing passed. >> was one of the reasons we are having is under reconciliation. there was always an understanding and a sort of supercharged political
3:35 pm
environment, it would be very hard for folks from the left to look like they are helping the republicans move something that only happens once every what, 30 years? but that still does not mean that we do not listen to where you have commonality and make the numbers work. >> do you see any commonalities that you discuss with them now on this plan specifically? >> yeah, i think there is an understanding with even a lot of folks on the left that if we do not get nearly dramatic economic growth, this society cannot pay the promises we have made. whether it be the earned entitlements like medicare and social security are even -- if you look at was happening in the country demographically, we hit a wall in about a decade or two. economic growth is the most elegant way to deal with the problem. >> finally, do you think that it will be achieved? you have the critics saying that it is another republican
3:36 pm
give way to the wealthy. you have other saying that no, you get middle-class benefits and the wealthy especially in some of the blue states would be hit hard with the state and deduction for taxes being thrown if it does indeed stand. >> i do but think about some of the craziness, as we were rolling out the basic box, you already had the minority leader in the senate doing a press conference trashing parts of it and it got all of the numbers wrong. at some point, when our most moderate income citizens start their federal income tax level now zero, zero is still zero. and pretending that some sort of tax hike, that is just vicious rhetoric. it is not math. >> go back and have a copy! we are counting on you. thank you.we will see what happens in getting back to see if there's any progress. >> have a good night. >> prince harry bringing two
3:37 pm
very special guests with him to the invective against will take you to the event in toronto. plus this. >> that's not who we are. >> a screening held on capitol hill for a faith-based movie. we will talk to the woman who brought this groundbreaking production to america's lawmakers and not to a theater near you. he's green money, for spending today. makes it easy to tell you apart. that, and i am better looking. i heard that. when it's time to get organized for retirement, it's time to get voya.
