tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News August 17, 2018 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
be out the door because one of them apparently has an event. there's a small chance that they could come down with a verdict, but very small. i'm trace gallagher in for shepard smith. "your world" with neil cavuto starts right now. >> neil: all right. welcome, everybody. i'm neil cavuto, this is "your world." we're about to upend the financial world if the president hints he could have his way. the dow continued to advance today largely on optimism that corporate earnings will be a-okay. speaking of those earnings, we get them every quarter. the president is looking into the idea maybe not every quarter. maybe twice a year. they do that in germany. other countries do as well. the idea is take the pressure off of companies to be so short term oriented. for investors to cool it and you cool it and financial journalists to cool it and not get so hot and bothered by events that change every few months that is the headline.
now to the details. can it be done? who will push what? kevin corke at the white house with more. hi, kevin. >> great summation, neil. the president said he got this idea after speaking with corporate executives. this idea of instead of doing quarterly reports and all the pressure that is associated with that, what if we matched some of our biggest competitors overseas and did it twice a year. once every six months as you said. while we don't flow if the sec will buy into this idea, i can tell you a lot of people in washington are talking about it today. the president made the comments before heading up north for what he's calling a working weekend in new jersey. the president tried to shake things up just a bit. the idea being that half yearly recording would mark a change in u.s. disclosure requirements and put us in line with the e.u. and the u.k. the switch, neil, it's important to point out while it would grant companies more flexibility, there's people
concerned about whether or not such a decision would make symptoms more volatile. that's a concern. here's the president talking about it this morning. >> the head of pepsico, a great woman that is now retiring, she said, because i asked, what could we do to make it better? she said two times a year reporting, not quarterly. i thought of it. made sense to me. >> all right. i just want to run this by you. we received a note from blake burman working the phones for us. we've been reaching out. i want to read part of this statement, neil. it's illuminating. for folks at home, it's instructive. it says our staff considers these important matters. the top reads this way. "the president has highlight add key consideration for american companies and importantly american investors and their
families encouraging long-term investment in our country. the sec's division of corporation finance continues to study company reporting requirements, including the frequency of reporting." it goes on to say, they welcome to input from companies, investors, market participants as our staff considers the important matters. the bottom line, it's a provocative idea. there may be stock shock if this comes to fruition. we won't know for quite some time if the sec will act on it. for now, a great talking point for you today. >> it is indeed. you're so smooth at that. you can get a job at fox business. >> you know -- >> neil: you never know. >> worse things have happened. >> neil: if you haven't gotten it, it's worth it. thanks very much. that's the drill here. we have been on fire with these corporate earnings, the ones that come out for the time being, because they have handily beat estimates by and large with
85% or so of most companies reporting of the s&p 500, they have handily beat the estimates out there. eight in ten are beating them by a substantial amount when it comes to what they're earning and the overall sales. what would happen if you had to wait to find that outlets say twice a year instead of four times a year? let's bring in charlie gasparino on that. what would it mean? anything? >> this is one of the dumber ideas i've heard in a long time. let's be real clear. we need companies to disclose more. actually, more frequently about what is going on. investors need a quarterly report to know quarter by quarter how their company is doing. i understand why the ceo of pepsico or was, as she's stepping down and other ceos don't want to work that hard and deal with investors holding their feet to the fire. i understand that. what i don't understand is why the president of the united states has taken that seriously. because of all --
>> neil: the other argument is that it keeps everything short term oriented. you're trying to rig the game. it's like a congressman is elected for two years and with a year -- >> actually not. is holding companies responsible on a short term basis for -- >> neil: that is good? >> it's damn good. germany has a lot -- germany has the metric system. let's go to the metric system if that -- look at their markets. look at our markets. i will say this. this is why i think it's a stupid idea. >> neil: i don't know where you're coming from on this you don't like it. >> think about the stuff that we have to worry about for the securities markets. we have regulations that squeezes small companies, prevents them from going public. we have a ceo of a major company saying his funding was secured and it wasn't. it sent the stock up and people -- >> neil: elon musk. i'll answer that in a second. >> that's called disclosure.
that's the stuff -- >> neil: that wouldn't change -- >> no. but my point is, this is irrelevant to -- companies aren't going to change that much if that announce twice a year. >> neil: then you have nothing to worry about. >> they should worry about making it easier to go public, list on the change -- >> neil: they're still obligated to tell you what they're doing, thinking, planning, mergers they're working on, whether they will split their shares. that always -- so when are you whining about? >> why anybody cares about this. this is minutia. >> neil: let's say it were to pass. you worry? >> i think investors need to hear -- i think analysts and investors should be trying to put the feet to the fire of corporate ceos four times a year to live up to their obligations. if they don't, the stock should suffer. this is not hurting capital formation. think about it.
why do we care about markets? we want companies to go public. this doesn't hurt them. >> neil: maybe you just don't like the germans. maybe that's what's coming through here. >> my uncle fought with patton in world war ii. that could be it. >> neil: can you stay here? i want to talk about tesla. i want to bring connell mcshane in. i'm not going to peppering you on whether they're quarterly or every half year reports, connell. the separate story on tesla, a lot of people should get a handle on, he's in a heap of trouble. he's the iconic founder of this electric car company and right now it's in a world of hurt because he might have misrepresented the financing available for his company. but the company is him, right? >> exactly. it's a remarkable story in so many ways when you think about it. for some of the reasons you just mentioned, for people that don't know who elon musk is, he has become one of the big names in american business, especially the last few years.
he's the head of tesla known for expensive electric vehicles. the head of spacex, ahead of other entrepreneurial ventures. elon musk says this past year has been excruciating. niece what he told "the new york times." an interview like one we don't see often from a ceo. "the new york times" been great. i've had friends come by that are really concerned. presumably had some investors that are concerned as well as the stock went tumbling following this interview that mr. musk gave to the times. >> neil: before that, it was
under pressure that he hoodwinked people. saying he had a big push to take the company private, which would make moot this quarterly report. but he was going to -- had financing available. turns out that that was not the case. >> a couple things interesting. he talked about having fully funded financing at $420 a share. apparently he was actually making a reference -- i don't know if you and charlie are familiar with the 420 movement in this country. april 20th, marijuana day. people were joking around when he said that. he gave a quote to the times where he seemed to say, yell, it was better karma 420 than 419 and then he commented he wasn't on weed when he sent out the tweet. >> neil: and charlie gasparino broke out the news on this. i don't know where this is going. his name is so associated with the company. federal regulators are on him, the sec looking into this.
you have to ask is it like apple without steve jobs in those days or is it that big of a deal that if he were forced out, extreme as it may be, could the company continue? >> it will be a real problem from an optics standpoint. the sec is looking at this, looking at a statement. doesn't look like it's accurate, the funding secured on one hand. the other hand -- >> neil: the funding to go ahead and go private presumably. he said the funding is secured. >> from a legal standpoint, it wasn't. he's a ceo and he should be issuing legalistic statements of fact and potential. he says it's potential. >> neil: he's mr. cool electric car. a lot of people that do electric cars today. if he's in deep do do, is his company and the cool cars gone? >> no. the company will survive on its own. by the way, there's two stories here. whether the sec brings the case what type of case. i don't think they want to
destroy a company by taking him out. >> neil: it's happened before. >> happened before. i'm telling you some things. the other thing is the metrics of the company. is this a real company that has potential to be a $300, $400 stock or is this a battery company with a wrap-around vehicle around it that is pretty much a commodity. if it's just a battery company which is the technology behind it, what is it worth? >> neil: what are you hearing, connell? >> i think essentially it comes down to whether or not the funding was security, which charlie was getting at. at the end of the times story, the fact that they said the saudi fund has not committed to provide cash that would mean he didn't have the money. >> neil: so he lied or misrepresented or -- >> or said something that wasn't true. >> neil: will he still be associated with this company a month from now?
what do you think, charlie? >> i want to say no. because what he did, if you look at the evidence, it's not good. but i don't think they want to take him out and destroy the company. they knew there would be a run on the stock like no tomorrow. >> neil: there was a run today. you would have thought it would have fallen more. down about $50 this week. it's an expensive stock. it's an iconic name, an american iconic name. he's south african. tesla is associated with everything cool about electric cars. we mentioned it here, folks. if it turns the other way, of course, there's other electric cars out there, but a big name in a big business that was all cool is now looking very hot, very bothered and very much in trouble. we're on top of it. more after this. lies today... school.. lies today... grade.. done. done. hit the snooze button and get low prices on school supplies all summer long. like these for only a 25 cents at office depot officemax.

governor of wisconsin. they really zeroed him on in when he was already dismantling unions in the state. they had a special recall election. everybody thought he was toast. he wasn't. he winning re-election in 2014. but now they're convinced they can take him down. scott walker, trailing in the polls, says easier said than done. at issue here, a big one for republicans and democrats, the fate of harley-davidson. a huge employer in wisconsin and sometimes that does put him at odds with the president of the united states. take a look. >> i want harley-davidson to succeed. i'm a harley rider. i'll be out for the 115th anniversary. have a 100th anniversary road king myself. i want them to succeed. to me the best way -- >> neil: have you told the president that, that that sentiment is complicating your efforts here? >> i've talked to the president and wilbur ross and others about
the best way for them and other manufacturers to succeed is to have what the president said at the g-7. he said to the european union, get to no tariffs. if we have no tariffs with our trading partners, harley-davidson manufacturers, farmers and others -- >> neil: you know what the president said. the move to announce some jobs overseas was baked into the proverbial cake. they were going to do this and used the excuse of those tariffs and a trade war to justify it. what did you think of that? >> i think in the end, that's why to me i'm about getting things solved, not just commenting on it. but solutions. the best solution for harley and the other companies and farmers in the state is, let's to no tariffs. the president brought it up. we latched on to that. i talked about it at the select u.s.a. summit when i was being interviewed by wilbur ross in front of thousands of people. i talked to the president and vice president about it. the best thing to do is get
where the president said. no tariffs. i was in south korea last year in a trade mission in seoul. i saw harley-davidson dealerships. we have a good deal -- >> neil: i understand, sir. what would i'l tell you, let's say the tariff thing is resolved to everyone's liking and the company still moves people abroad. would you feel like you were hosed here? >> oh, i think there's no doubt -- i've talked to harley officials. i know them well. i'm a harley rider. i know if you don't have tariffs here, they not only make the bikes they make to sell in america, which they do, no change there, they would make as many motorcycles as they could if there were no tariffs -- >> neil: they have already told you they will stop this right mid stream if this thing is resolved? >> again, that's been part of their long-term plan for them. they want to make as many bikes as they can in america. they make them for the american -- >> neil: but they're going to make a bunch overseas now.
you say this is done on the trade front, have they committed to you they won't do that? >> there's no doubt. for years they have signalled that if the price is right, if you don't have tariffs affecting trade policies around the world, of course they want to make them here in america. >> neil: it's a lot cheaper to make them abroad. that's what breeds the cynicism, governor. they're doing this and using this as an excuse. you don't buy that? you take them at their word that if the tariffs go away they won't do it? >> absolutely. if you don't have tariffs, which is what the president is talking about and i wish there was no discussion about that at the g-7. not only for harley, for other manufacturers and harleys. we don't have tariffs, we can compete with anybody in the world. just give us a level playing field. that's what the president is ultimately talking about. >> neil: governor, when you ran for president, you were very straightforward about what you had orchestrated in wisconsin. you didn't go very far, but the
president has -- the candidate talked about criticism from those in the party including your minnesota neighbor, tim pawlenty that lost out on a shot to get a crack at his old job. it came at a time when the president apparently remembered governor pawlenty calling him unhinged. you avoided strong language like that. but do you think that it is simply better to be on good terms with this president than bad? >> well, i want to get things done for the people in my state. we just got approval of a waiver, for example that allows me to create a wisconsin healthcare plan that will lower premiums and improve healthcare for farmers and small business owners that purchased healthcare. under obamacare, premiums went up 44%. i got the legislature. democrats and republicans want to go along with it but i need
the administration to help us. the past administration didn't do things like that under obama. this administration did. i'm going to do what i can to fight for the people of the state of wisconsin. when i can have a good connection to the president and the vice president and to any one in washington willing to help the people in my state, i'm going to look to enhance that. if i disagree with them, i'll disagree with them and stand up for the people of wisconsin. >> neil: governor, we're very close to a nafta deal we're told with mexico. not necessarily canada. i was surprised to learn when they had the spray in the cabinet room, the president hasn't been talking to the canadians for some time. does that concern you? that we might get half a nafta deal with mexico and make not canada? >> canada is our number 1 trading partner in wisconsin as in many states. we want a good trading relationship with them. this is a prime example of even before this talk about the recent tariffs, canada particularly in quebec put on price control in ultra filtered milk. that led to more than 50
wisconsin dairy farmers being let lose from a company. that is a good example where unfair trade practices are detriment to farmers and manufacturers and workers in my state and other states across the nation. we need a level playing field. we should get there. we're a good trading partner with canada. they are with us. let's get to a level playing field like the president said in canada at the g-7. >> neil: all right. wisconsin governor scott walker. have you been following the race to get this blue wave going for democrats? trying to topple republicans in the house. more striking is what a lot of those democrats are saying what they'll do if they get there. nancy pelosi, if you want to be speaker, doesn't look like it could be happening. one democrat already has made up their mind. (vo) when bandits stole the lockbox from the wells fargo stagecoach, agent beekman was one step ahead of them. because he hid his customers' gold in a different box. and the bandits, well, they got rocks. we protected your money then and we're dedicated to helping protect it today.

>> neil: they don't fancy nancy. i'm talking about democrats that hope to join democratic ranks in the senate. but when it comes to the house. many telling nancy pelosi to forget about being speaker. her team has come and gone. and my next guest feels the same way. she's running against jim jordan in ohio for his seat. she said recently, i look at the leadership and i think we should vote them all out. janet garrett is her name. thanks for coming. >> thank you for having me on. it's a real pleasure. >> neil: so why do you feel that way when it comes to nancy pelosi? to be fair, you extended this to all the leadership. why? >> well, here's the thing. washington is broken. i think we can all agree on that. we look at our government, and
we see gridlock. we see both sides yelling across the aisle at each other. they're not getting anything done for the people. we need -- we have a lot of needs in this country and they need to be addressed. they're not going on as long as we've got this gridlock. >> neil: will the gridlock be any let if you take the majority with or without nancy pelosi leading the troops? >> we need new leadership. that's the point. we're going to be pushing for new leadership when we get in there. we're going to be pushing for an opportunity to reach across the aisle and work together. you know, there was a time when our government actually worked, right? it was a time when we would lean in and we would reach across the aisle and we would find compromise. that's what we need to do again. let me tell you something. i am a retired school teacher.
i spent 35 years in the classroom. i spent 20 years on the executive council of my teacher's union. i was at the negotiating table many, many times. what i learned from that experience is that when you're negotiating with somebody on the opposite side from you, you go in with what you want. you come back with what you can live with. that is what is completely missing. >> neil: you're right. what comes to mind -- you're right. you're right. it's been a very poisonous atmosphere. but i'm curious, nancy pelosi has been among those saying if democrats take over again, they're going to rescind the tax cuts. she said whatever benefits americans have gotten out of them have been crumbs. do you agree with that? >> i agree that the american people are not -- their needs are not being addressed.
you had a segment on earlier talking about wall street. i'm interested in what is going on on main street. >> neil: would you rescind the tax cuts? >> those tax cuts, they originally said that they were going to be for the middle class. what the middle class got was a very small but temporary tax cut. what they gave the upper class was large and permanent. that is not fair. >> neil: so would you rescind them? would you rescind them? would you start from scratch? >> i would rescind it. i would start from scratch. i would say we want to give the middle class a tax break, which i think we should do, then we should really give them a tax break. there are people in the upper crust are doing very well, thank you very much.
they didn't need a huge tax break that added 1.5 trillion to our deficit. we're laying that off on our children and our grandchildren. >> neil: all right. >> that is not fair. >> neil: our satellite is about to go down. thanks very much. janet garrett taking on jim jordan. we have more including guy that could become the next speaker of the house if he were interested in it with steve scalise next. oh. hey mom. now that we have your attention... capri sun has four updated drinks. now with only the good stuff. do you know how to use those? nope. get those kids some capri sun!

>> neil: so what if the democrats don't take over the house? it's up to the republicans to choose the next speaker. is steve scalise that guy? we'll ask him. he's next. it's absolute confidence in 30,000 precision parts, or it isn't. it's inspected by mercedes-benz factory-trained technicians, or it isn't. it's backed by an unlimited mileage warranty,
or it isn't. for those who never settle, it's either mercedes-benz certified pre-owned, or it isn't. the mercedes-benz certified pre-owned sales event, now through august 31st. only at your authorized mercedes-benz dealer. >> neil: all right. you heard that democratic candidate who is taking on jim jordan said that she would be among those not only repudiating nancy pelosi if she were to get to capitol hill and democrats get the majority but she would work to start from scratch on the tax cuts. that's been a major call of republicans to keep the house. that's what you have to look forward to. some people might welcome that. i would wager steve scalise thinks you wouldn't like that. he joins us. congressman, good to have you. thank you. >> good to be back, neil. you show the candidates on the
democratic said. they repudiate pelosi and then parrot her on the policies. she will vote will nancy pelosi to raise taxes. hard working families are benefitting the most. why would you want to reverse that with another pelosi puppet? we're seeing that with a lot of their candidates. >> neil: she said she's arguing for the same things that pelosi is pushing for. >> she said she agreed with her policies. >> neil: right. rescinding the tax cuts. she went on to sale that -- a agrees that they are crumbs and the middle and lower class has gotten crumbs. how do you counter that in campaign ads and the republican approach to keeping the house? >> the first thing we do is continue to remind folks that there's a clear difference in this election in november. we cut taxes for everybody at every single income level. the people benefitting the most are middle class families that were struggling under eight years of a weak economy under
barack obama. so president trump said we want to make sure we rebuild our middle class and that is happening. frankly the regulation relief that we provided is one of the big things in addition to tax cuts that is bringing those good manufacturing jobs back to america. don't reverse that success. by the way, they want to repeal ice. they want to abolish the very agency protecting our country from criminals and human traffickers. we'll remind people what is at stake. we want to make the tax cuts permanent. the temporary tax cuts, we'll have a bill to let every democrat that voted against cutting middle class taxes, we'll let them have a vote to make those successful tax cuts permanent. >> neil: so let me ask you about what could disrespect this recovery. a very strong recovery and hints it could get stronger. the one worry, the trade tariffs that could escalate. many colleagues are concerned that the president is playing with a live grenade there. are you? >> you know, the president has
made it clear that he wants america to be treated fairly. that's what's going on here. there's a high stakes negotiation. but go look at a lot of these countries. you can start with canada. they're a great friend of ours. if you're a lot of industries in america and you try to do business in canada, there's huge barriers to getting your products in the canadian markets. they don't have the same impediments when they bring their products here. all we're asking for is for countries to treat us fairly. i don't think that is something that should be controversial. we don't want a trade war. so let's get through the negotiations with better deals for america and let all of our -- not only consumers benefit but all of our companies that make products that build things in america, let's make sure we're not treated unfairly as well. >> neil: you know, every party has its extremes or there's an argument, congress with democrats, they don't want to go the hard left route, the bernie sanders or something more to the
middle or at least moderate for democrats, the joe biden round. republicans are dealing this as well when it comes to considering who they want to be the next speaker. jim jordan is in the ring. your name has come up. mccarthy's name has come up. first of all, are you interested in that spot? are you worried about the direction it's taking because nobody would know who would have the edge? >> no, i think -- first of all, i said i'm not running. we have to stay focused on holding the majority. >> neil: you said you're not running. >> right. >> neil: but a lot of people want you to. >> well, i mean, if you look right now, the majority of our conference is only focused on moving our agenda forward and holding the majority. we'll have an opportunity in november to make sure that we figure out who will have chairmanmanships and titles. we're not worried about that right now. nancy pelosi is speaker if we lose our focus. >> neil: you want that to be a conservative?
that's the battle royale. should it be more mainstream like a paul ryan or kevin mccarthy, someone more to the right? it seems to be a soul kind of question. >> you know, i think in the end if you look where we are today and kevin mccarthy, all of us, newt gingrich would tell you, this republican majority is much more conservative than the majority in 1994. so whatever the labels are today, they change over time. at the end, we're working with president trump to move a conservative agenda forward and we've been successful. i want us to be even more successful. we by the way out of the house pass add repeal and replace of obamacare. somebody that would lower health premiums and create a private marketplace for healthcare that doesn't exist today. that bill fell by one vote in the senate. let's get more republican senators and we will and let's come back at that. let's keep building on the success of the tax cuts, keep creating more jobs. get healthcare prices under
control. get this economy moving again and get spending under control. that's what we want to do next year. we can't do that if nancy pelosi is speaker. >> neil: you know, in october, a lot of americans will be facing huge premium increases because of that healthcare loss. because republicans control the house and the senate and the white house. are you afraid voters will blame that on you? >> you know, i think if we were not successful getting the tax cut bull passed, they would have. what you can look at right now is a house republican majority that passed a bill to repeal and replace obamacare that would have lowered premiums. i'd put that bill up against anything out there to show how we would have helped families be in control of their healthcare decisions again. the bill failed by one vote in the senate. we know, we saw the infamous thumb going down. neil, we know also that this is a really good -- >> neil: are you angry at john mccain? you talked about the thumb going
down. that was john mccain's thumb. >> what i was angry at is the senate didn't stay in figure on how to get the job done. they fell one vote short. i know this. they want to come back with more republican senators and get it done. we're going to keep at it, too. we would have to pass a bill through the house. that wouldn't be easy. we would do it. they have to do it as well. it all starts with these elections in november. >> neil: congressman, what do you think of the president taking away the security clearance of john brennan and the hint of doing the same to a number of others? >> well, i was surprised that brennan had kept his security clearance for so long. he wasn't of any value to the administration. he's just going out there and frankly i think continuing his partisan witch hunt that he's out there bashing the president for things that he's not familiar with. just because it seemed cool on the left to bash the president. that's not what those security clearances are supposed to be for. they're supposed to be there to
provide value to the administration. if they're not being used to help our country be more secure, then why are that there? it's not a birth right. >> so when he went on the next day, i read an editorial to say the president's thought that collusion is hog wash, what does he know that we don't? >> he ought to say what that is. there's been a lot of investigations including what the house has done to see if there was any collusion between any of the campaigns. we found none. so if he's got some new evidence, he ought to be getting it out there. to continue just going on and making blanket accusations with no fact behind it, people are getting fed up with that. we've seen the problems within the fbi and over at justice. let's go and get this agency cleaned up again. america needs and deserves a justice department and an fbi that is working for them every day without a political bias. if somebody over there -- we've seen unfortunately a number of people over there that had political biases.
they were trying to derail the presidency of donald trump. whether the name is donald trump or barack obama, those agencies should not be working to undermine our own government. so we're going to continue to root out those bad apples. i would hope the agency works with us so that they can get rid of the bad actors and focus on keeping the country safe. >> thanks, congressman. good seeing you. >> great to be back with you, neil. >> neil: steve scalise. when we come back, more on the manafort jury getting ready to leave at 5:00 p.m. today. what does that mean? obviously this is going to go on a little longer than thought. the conventional argument is it looked better for manafort. but again what do we know? after this. aptop with free 24/7 tech support. aptop yep, thanks guys. i think he might need some support. yes. start them off right. with the school supplies they need at low prices all summer long. like these for only a 25 cents at office depot officemax.

>> neil: all right. the jury in the manafort trial could be ready to call it a day. that doesn't mean somewhere thinking earlier on it was a possible decision being reached here. apparently not. fox news correspondent peter doocy is live at the courthouse with the latest. what's going on? >> neil, earlier today, the jury sent a note to the judge saying they wanted to leave at 5:00. they didn't want to read a verdict. apparently one of the 12 had an event to go to early in the evening. while the deliberations are dragging on, the defendant, paul manafort is being kept in a small jail cell in the courthouse. he doesn't have any reading material or tv. it's not clear if he knows that the president this morning said he thinks it's sad what is happening to paul manafort. but his attorneys certainly do. >> any reaction to the president's comments this morning? >> great comments. >> mr. manafort appreciates the
support of president trump. >> you think the longer they deliberate favors your client? >> we do. thanks. >> the judge denied a request from a handful of news organizations including a.p., cnn and "new york times" to release the names of the jurors. the judge ruled he can't do that without risking safety and said that he's been threatened during the course of the trial so now he needs to travel with u.s. marshall protection. sounds like deliberations are set to continue monday. among the jurors that asked the judge yesterday for an index of evidence so that they know in exhibit is tied to which charge. the judge said no. that is notable. a source told me that some mueller prosecutors had an exhibit, a sort of key to the evidence ready to go at the closing arguments, but they never brought it up. neil? >> neil: thanks, peter.
following up on that though, looks like no decision today. maybe on monday. who knows. meanwhile, we have a lot of heavy duty news here. politics and friction on capitol hill. we thought we would bring things down a little bit except for parents and brides and the rest that have to worry about the cost of that walk down the aisle. of course for grooms as well, the cost is substantial. tomorrow, tomorrow is actually the biggest wedding day of the year. gen x weighs in. iveries to homes than anyone else in the country, iveries we never forget... that your business is our business the united states postal service. priority: you

pitch in for the mortgage. everybody who has a pet has it for emotional support. all pets should be considered emotional support animals. >> so a parrot, donkey -- >> my prayers have been answered. i think what people don't understand about this debate, there's people -- i know you need emotional support. people with real life allergies to these animals. i got hospitalized after an american airlines flight because i'm allergic to dogs, a giant dog sat in my seat before i got on the plane. i'm a cat lover. i don't bring any cat because i understand people are -- >> neil: a good point. >> you don't want to ruin the fun for us. the real story here, there's emotional support cats. cats relish in our pain. they don't want to offer -- >> oh, my gosh. >> neil: but they limit it to cats and dogs, right? the parakeets and the other ones
