. netflix shares are absolutely soaring on the day, it would take a look at the today chart of netflix, we see the stock is up in a huge way on a big subscriber beat. 15% over the last two days. they put up 5.2 million subscribers versus the estimate of 3.2 3 million. really knocking it out of the park. much of that from international growth, which is what investors want to see. this by the company put a relatively small profit, investors are cheering the fact that subscribers came in strong. let's end on health care with the latest version of the gop health care bill dead and the -- theood of the repeal potential repeal or straight repeal obamacare lacks the votes to happen. we have a weakness for insurers. told our team not so long ago this represents the
2:03 pm
fact that if obamacare stays in place, it means that insurers fees stay in place. without seemingly stay in place, we've got some pretty decent declines for some of the big insurance companies. julia: thanks, abigail. investors were not familiar with that one. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell is expected to speak at any moment following a policy lunch. republicans are trying to pick up the pieces after their health care bill failed to pick up support. on as seeking a vote simple repeal, but that has been rejected. earlier today donald trump spoke about the senate setback. trump: we haven't had a victory on health care, and we are disappointed. i am very disappointed, because even as a civilian, for seven years i've been hearing about health care, and i've been hearing about repeal and replace. julia: kevin cirilli, chief washington correspondent, and here with me in the studio is
2:04 pm
bloomberg executive editor craig gordon. kevin, i do know where to start. plan b is dead, does it look like it's got the vote behind it? of whichlost plant number we are our. -- i lost track of which number we are on. this is been a disaster for this of administration. president trump tang he is "disappointed," and mike pence was speaking across town to retailers, urging to congress to get the job done in a speech that was supposed to be about tax reform. committee finance meeting today to continue discussions about tax reform. no question that the senate majority leader, with whom we're awaiting comments, is there's pressure to turn the tide and
2:05 pm
his inability to pass health care reform. i've spoken with conservative aids and members like senator rand paul who suggest now they feel the majority leader is more likely to negotiate with centrist democrats, people like senator joe manchin and heidi health care a fixed bill. but the timeline for that is now extending beyond the august recess, with hope inside the beltway that they will pivot to some type of tax cut. kevin, we will leave it there for a second. how likely is some kind of bipartisan backup plan? we got a real problem here now. they are -- craig: they are talking to the right democrats. it would be called conservative democrats in this town and they are open to making some kind of deal, i suppose. the democrats and republicans are so far apart on health care, it's really hard to picture a middle ground, was like west virginia where joe manchin is
2:06 pm
from, obamacare is putting a lot of people in health care and it's really important bill to him. he's not going to cut a deal that leaves his residence high and dry. i don't see a lot of ground for compromise, but mitch mcconnell is a pretty good dealmaker. we will see what he can do. julia: we're talking about health care and remove onto the budget and the potential for tax care -- tax reform. does this lead to a face-saving vote on the gop? and then we move on to something else? talk about that, and whether or not the disarray we've seen in health care lead to the tax reform? winning is contagious and losing is contagious. once you start down this road where they barely squeeze it through the house, or not going to get it through the senate, they are talking about a vote that would fail. it's out of the budget. the are not giving trump spending cuts he wants and that is on the tax reform. republicans have said if they are not giving in the tax reform plan they want. mitch mcconnell wants to not
2:07 pm
have a penny to the deficit and donald trump says he doesn't care. it's hard to imagine two people in the same party being farther apart. as a serious possibility to get into the end of this year with no major legislative a compliment for the dolphins presidency. that's real big. scarlet: it's out of the budget and then tax reform. both.yan talked about let's listen to what he said. speaker ryan: to set the change -- the stage for tax reform, we are working on a balanced budget. -- chairman black release a budget that balances are debt crisis. scarlet: kevin cirilli, the house moving ahead and trying to get contraction with dealing with the budget and tax reform. what is the appetite in congress for dealing with tax reform before the health care bill is resolved? kevin: i don't think they have a choice at this point. craig: several suggested to me that the idea of comprehensive tax reform is essentially dead.
2:08 pm
kevin: if anything, they would be corporate tax cuts, which is very different than reform. beyond that, the speaker is suggesting that there is unity within the republican party and craig gordon just said that is just not the case. whether you are talking about the border adjustment tax or revenue neutrality -- and oh yeah, let's throw in a partial government shutdown in the fall, with ultraconservatives in the house of representatives, saying the only way they are going to get on board with steve mnuchin's push to raise the debt limit is two in fact cut defense spending. if they don't do that, if they don't offset those costs, we have a situation where a republican-controlled white house without a significant policy win, backed by a republican-controlled senate and a republican-controlled house could actually shut down the government. julia: that is quite a fascinating prospect here. , becausen this craig
2:09 pm
the blowback for this? is it which mcconnell couldn't pull everybody together or lack of strategy from the administration? craig: fundamentally, donald trump takes the blame. you are seeing some grumbling about mitch mcconnell. it's unusual for a leader of his savvy to be on the floor and 10 of his members said no thanks. mitch mcconnell should have done his nose counting better. he dropped the ball here. julia: are they learning from these areas? we were just talking about the fact that they don't have something as far as tax reform is concerned. do you think they learned from the mistakes that were made? voices already getting in washington saying there's likely be the same level of secrecy about tax reform as there is with health care fail one and two. craig: we have a little bit of evidence that the white house is taking this more seriously and doing things that a white house would normally do.
2:10 pm
we know sean spicer is working behind the scenes to try and set up groups lobbying ways for people to say we support this. kind of republican dogma. it's an easier thing for republicans to get around. have a little bit of a sense they are learning. the white house with a their learning, but for put me in the wait-and-see camp. the buck stops here, and i'll probably blamed for failing obamacare. -- donald trump will be blamed for failing on obamacare. julia: he tweeted if we could , hislet obamacare fail point was they won't take responsibility, the gop want the responsibility -- won't take responsibility, it will be other people. with his failure of obamacare in the stage look like? kevin: if you go on the bloomberg and look at the poll in which less than 30% of americans gave the president approval rating for his handling of health care -- even more
2:11 pm
dismal than his 40% approval rating. if you look at exactly how bleak the support was behind the health care proposal put forth by the senate majority leaders office -- there's a lack of political capital. when you look at how this could fail, when you look at states int president trump won, particular, rural communities and how those exchanges are being impacted with insurance -- with folks leaving the market of the obamacare exchanges and access and premiums skyrocketing -- this is really going to activate both grassroots of both political parties. the question becomes whether or not someone like senator joe manchin can rally the former governors who have since become senators to begin to craft some type of bipartisan alternative. it's not going to me a massive vote -- it's not going to be a healthl overhaul of the care system, it will be a fix it type of bill.
2:12 pm
but there is an opportunity for some type of bipartisanship that the white house could credit claim on, but is not going to be a dramatic overhaul of the system. privately behind the scenes, i can tell you the conservative es, are conceding that point. senator likely, they are giving up their political capital because they are cedeing it's a centrist democrats. julia: you mentioned the joe manchin. scarlet: craig, i wonder what have the joe manchin's and other conservative democrats is that in terms of what they are willing to entertain my comes a bipartisan health care reform? a lot of it is based on increasing funding for medicaid, which is how obamacare gets paid for. fairly poor states -- west virginia, heidi heitkamp out of north dakota. these are places where a lot of people are on this program and
2:13 pm
to get it through medicaid and medicaid subsidies and payments. the original bill and revised bill were fairly stingy unmedicated. mitch mcconnell have $200 billion he could throw into the kitty. there is the money to play with and that could be enough to pick off a vote here and there, to tell some people that in this state, it will be enough money in the medicaid coffers to support health care for the citizens. that is what i do think the senators are looking for. julia: how much discussion and criticism are you hearing? is there a finger-pointing? a lot of people that expended political capital at this point. is there increasing reluctance to expand further political capital on this president, a respective of what we are talking about here? craig is concerned that nothing gets done this year now. kevin: i can't even put it into words the amount of pressure on hearing behind the scenes. weeks,ed about this for about the latest developments in
2:14 pm
the intrigue stories with the russian investigation. how injuryexample of does impact policy, because as a result of the narrative, so to speak, here in washington, people outside the beltway will roll their eyes at that term. the narrative is dictated by these investigations, which are realreal and very questions that have to be answered, but also by this palace intrigue stories, when the president is using the bully pulpit or his twitter account to continue to hammer it journalists or other situations. a deal making, which is what he campaigned on what he would do. that sense of frustration amongst republicans here in the senate, as well as a couple of weeks ago when they were trying to get it out of the house of representatives, is very much dominating a lot of the conversation, both when congress is out of session and in the halls of congress. julia: it makes total sense. kevin cirilli, and thanks to
2:15 pm
greg gorman of bloomberg news. coming up, kevin manziel weighs in on the prospect for president trump's economic agenda as retail industry faces a number of headwinds. from washington, this is bloomberg. ♪
2:16 pm
2:17 pm
scarlet: this is "bloomberg markets," i'm scarlet fu. retail in the u.s. facing a watershed moment as e-commerce disrupt traditional brick-and-mortar. almost 9000 stores set to close, but cold is talking the trend -- kohls is bucking the trend. keeping stores opened run their reach. we spoke with kevin manziel. --mansell.
2:18 pm
>> we will occasionally close stores. maybe lease obligation change and we close the store. i don't want to give the impression that we never close a store, but more generally, i think the fact that we leverage ,ur stores for on the channel or fulfill out of our stores customers online orders, we think that stores are really, really important. across a large platform the country, its free will dispersed, so we are represented everywhere. believe in the future of stores, and i think if customers move even more to a buy it now and get it now mentality, and they are moving more that way, stores are naturally going to be more important, not less important. even this year, we are up to about 25% of the online orders
2:19 pm
are fulfilled out of our stores. julia: you think that will be enough to counter falling traffic, declining same-store sales as you look forward over the next few years. >> combined with other strategies -- i think i'll longer-term basis, we don't really see traffic declines consistently over time. there are strategies we have put in place to start to moderate that trend, but generally we are no different than other brick-and-mortar retailers. we are exposed to the growth of online, that has resulted in less traffic into our stores. i think they are generally, the combination of leveraging existing stores and the fact that we are capable, because of a strong balance sheet, to invest in the stores, makes the store experience better. there was a time, three or four years ago, there were a lot of pundits who said rick and mortar retail is dead -- brick-and-mortar retail is dead.
2:20 pm
that clearly is not going to happen, and more and more, the future is going to be omni channel future that people decide how they need to buy, buy online and ship it to me, or pick it up, or go into the store. hit 45% of all retail sales in the next 10 years and you a strong first quarter at 13%. we did see walmart online sales were over 60%. how are you staying competitive when it comes to online? >> there are multiple layers of answer to that question. it's a good question, because online growth will continue. it's going to continue to accelerate. relative to the walmart 60% growth, they acquired another big business. we are organic, growth is coming from our own business. we expect 15% to 20% growth for the for seeable future.
2:21 pm
and the way we compete, we are back to what makes kohl's different -- we have a really well-capitalized company and a great balance sheet. in online effectively ni channel world, you have to invest. >> is amazon one of your name -- or main competitors? >> i would say they've been our number one competitor for the past three or four years. earlier on in categories like home, more recently progressively growing in apparel. but we look at it as no different then another competitor. they are a threat to our share. us is to be win for channel in class omni retailer out there.
2:22 pm
that is not something they have. being able to create a seamless experience between online kohl's and the physical kohl's is i think our pastor success. >> amazon also wants to be physical, they are buying an opening brick-and-mortar stores. are you really concerned that they could come after your omni channel approach? >> to be honest with you, a year ago, there were lots of pundits who talked about the death of physical retail. i think the more recent acquisition by amazon of the whole food business really tells you there's original retailer who has realized if we're going to continue to grow and be competing effectively, we have to have a physical presence. the positive side of that is we already have that, and we are leveraging that. the negative side is is going to get increasingly competitive. there is also been massive store closures and that's just region that doesn't exist anymore.
2:23 pm
>> let's talk about the u.s. economy. we run a 16 year low in unemployment. how is that putting pressure on kohl's for hiring in wages? really about wages. we are competing with other companies, retailers included, but fulfillment companies, for the worker. as a result, we are seeing steady increases in average hourly wages. i would say over the course of the last two or three years, the average hourly wage in the stores has gone up in the range of 5% to 9%. we see that continue and that will be continued pressure on a higher average hourly ways -- hourly wage. you are competing for jobs. to a number of ceos and a number of them have told us how frustrated they are with washington.
2:24 pm
there has been a number of campaign promises that were made at the end of last year that they haven't seen for phil. his effort -- haven't seen for filled. is that the frustration you would have? >> we are more focused on our business. the area that has gotten the most attention from our standpoint has been the dialogue and discussion around tax reform, in particular one aspect that has been floated is the idea of the border tax. we've taken a strong position on that, and it seems to me pretty simple -- it's just a foolish idea. if you think about this at a high level, retailer is one of the largest employment sectors in the entire economy. and raising prices for the goods retailers say sell through border tax is going to lower demand. and the response from retailers is going to be, naturally, to make changes and cuts in their
2:25 pm
business, and i think employment will be affected. manziel that was kevin ll speaking with emma chandra. julia: the bloomberg business kerleythe city's mental: -- will voluntarily recall visa cards. they reassure owners concerns by aboutring the government emissions. the recall is going to cost $255 million. investors are switching out hedge funds inequities in favor of real estate. of their portfolios were invested in real estate at the end of the second quarter driven by poor returns and geopolitical risks. hedge funds fell to an all-time low of 4%. credit suisse will hire more relationship managers and saudi

2:30 pm
luncheon. when he appears, we will bring you his remarks life. in the meantime, let's get caught up on how commodities are trading. we begin with the tag sector. thanks to hot and dry weather. gold climbs for a six time in seven days as the dollar starts with the setback because of the republican health agenda. strong demand for chinese steel mills, up 8% over two months. same with industrial metals. let's show you the rise in copper and put it into context. it has taken the highest -- taken metals to their highest. technical suggest it could the early days with copper breaking above the upper level as prices exceeded $6,000 a metric ton for

the first time since back in march, potentially spurring more buying from computer model driven traders. something to watch as we monitor copper prices. let's get you a check on the headlines with bloomberg first word news and mark crumpton. mark: as we have been reporting all day, it's all about the collapse of the gop obamacare repeal effort. congressional republicans accused democrats of being obstructionist send unwilling to help improve the health care system. and already leader chuck schumer accuse president trump and mitch mcconnell saying we don't need you, we don't want you. to the ideaception democrats did not want to engage on health care. the majority leader admitted he decided the matter for us when he locked democrats out of the process. let's bring you now to
2:32 pm
the senate where mitch mcconnell has emerged from his weekly meeting and let's listen to what he said. mcconnell: repealing obamacare, essentially the same votes we had in 2015. i would remind everyone in that proposal that there is a two-year delay which would give us the opportunity to work out a complete replacement on a bipartisan basis with our democratic friends. that is a vote i think we are very likely to have in the very near future. >> we got a sense of what the future might look like if we are unsuccessful in repealing and replacing obamacare. we saw for the second time in a few days democratic senators coming to the floor asking for tens of billions of dollars in tax dollars for insurance company bailouts. no reform, no change in the status quo, and after seven
2:33 pm
years, i think we can safely conclude the structure of obamacare is a failed experiment. change why we want to the structure of the health care delivery system as we stabilize markets and protect people from premium increases and pre-existing condition exclusive -- exclusions. is alternative, i fear democratic efforts are going to bail out insurance companies with no reform whatsoever. >> after seven years of obamacare, the american public knows what they have. have fewer choices, higher premiums and less control over their own health care. a number of years ago, i voted to do a repeal of the obama health care law. i'm ready to make that complete repeal vote again, but that is not enough. the people of wyoming want more than that. the people of wyoming want to buy what works for them, not what the federal government says they have to buy.
2:34 pm
i am ready to vote to repeal. we need a medical system not just as good as it was before obamacare was passed, but we need a medical system that's even better than that. >> i think the only thing i can add to this discussion is we need to find out where the votes are. this is important work to be done. it affects families and health care. we need to find out where the votes are but there are other things we need to do. the president is talking about manufacturing and made in america. if you could pay the utility bill and the transportation system works, those are the two boxes you would check. the best place to get insurance is still at work where someone else does the negotiation and reads the policy, ways more people could get insurance at work is important and tax structure is important. has had a considerable
2:35 pm
amount of time spent on it and sooner rather than later, we need to find out where the senate is and move forward. there are a lot of people out there j you seem to be spiking the football, trying to celebrate a moment that for now seems to leave the affordable care act in place for today. but let me tell you what happened if you continue to spike the football. in the state of colorado last week, it was announced the .remium increase will be 27% that's if you are lucky enough to live in the front range of colorado. if you live in the eastern ranger western slope, you will play -- you will pay 30% more. that is spiking the football. work to getinue our our job done to make sure the status quo no longer stands and we provide a -- we provide relief to the american people.
2:36 pm
>> you went through two iterations of your bill and you heard from some of your members. some of the more critical that the process. do you feel you and your leadership have been damaged in this process and now after considering those criticisms come you could get this through? >> this has been a challenging experience for all of us. it is obvious we do not have 50 members who can agree on a replacement. a lot of people have been involved in very passionate discussions but everyone has given it their best shot. as of today, we simply do not have 50 senators who can agree on what ought to replace the existing law. vote that have is a aty of us made two years ago a time when the president of the united states would not sign the legislation that would repeal
2:37 pm
obamacare and with a two-year delay give us an opportunity to build something better on a bipartisan basis. that is what i since most of our members would like to vote on now and we will be doing that in the near future. >> you don't appear to currently have the votes. if that vote fails, do you then begin working with democrats? mr. mcconnell: we will have to see what happens. we will have demonstrated that republicans by themselves are not paired at this particular point to do a replacement. doesn't mean the problems all go away and you will have to look at our committee chairman and their ranking members. my suspicion is there will be hearings about the crisis we have and we will have to see what the way forward is.
2:38 pm
>> [indiscernible] months wasted with no accomplishments. how do you explain this to voters next year? mr. mccall: we have a new supreme court justice, we have 14 repeals of regulations and we lastnly six months into -- time i looked, congress goes on for two years. we will be moving on to comprehensive tax reform and infrastructure. there is much work to be done for the american people and we are ready to tackle it. you were just listening to the senate majority leader, mitch mcconnell, saying this has been a very challenging experience. it is obvious we don't have the numbers to vote for a replacement. he said they wanted to vote on
2:39 pm
repeal in the near future and most members would like to do that. he did refer to the previous vote done to repeal obamacare in obama's residency. no one raised the point with him that there were republicans that voted for that repeal knowing they were shielded by obama's veto. so that remains an open question. we heard from the cbo in january and they said it would result in 32 million uninsured, premiums doubling and 70% of the country lacking insurers in the decade. i have nowhere else to go on that. scarlet: certainly an interesting time to be in washington. let's turn to it does are talking about in new york, which is bank earnings. bank of america beat while goldman sachs reported record income from lending. joining us to break down the is dakin campbell.
2:40 pm
they did not have a great quarter when it came to big trading and we are looking at a 40% drop in trading? what happened? guest: that's a good question. theirlike every desk in business did not perform. they specifically called out commodities trading and they had some trouble there, not just low client volume but as they say, difficulty navigating the quarter which we think means some problems with their inventory or hedging their inventory. explanationther big because we did not get a big explanation, but income america did fairly well. how did that come about? in comparisonwell to goldman being down 30%.
2:41 pm
similarly, when we asked the question this morning can you tell us which banks were not doing well, bank of america, we cannot really call them out. all of them did badly. i think they did point to rates and emerging markets. scarlet: four bank of america, bloomberg intelligence and many others have said this bank is more sensitive to rate changes than any other bank. if that's the case, why did the net interest income disappoint? questionswere asking -- this long-term rate, we had these two rate rises. one of them with results a little strained four bank of america. eventually, the back end of the curve where we are concentrating securities, that was not the humming the way we thought. they also had the sale of the
2:42 pm
u.k. credit card business which hurt as well. scarlet: so of all the things we can look ahead to, we have morgan stanley results due out tomorrow. what do the goldman results suggest or is that not a fair comparison because they focus on different parts of trading? guest: i dig is a fair comparison. it is worth noting the commodities business, morgan stanley has largely gotten out of that or they have gotten much smaller there, so you probably won't see that showing up tomorrow. in the first order, morgan stanley have higher revenue from fixed trading than goldman for the first time since 2011. you could see a second straight quarter of morgan stanley outpacing that quarter which has a lot of wall street talking and there is some schadenfreude and we will see.
2:43 pm
all of the bond trading businesses on wall street are not doing well. if goldman was down 15% or 20%, no one would he talking about -- we would be talking less about it. much.t: thank you so fora: coming up, a slamdunk king james. his restaurant stock in blaze pizza is heating up. this is bloomberg. ♪

scarlet: this is bloomberg markets. let head over to abigail
2:46 pm
doolittle for today's sector spider report. abigail: today, we are looking at the consumer discretionary flipping between the best and second-best on the s&p 500. the fact that it's only up .3% speaks to the quality of trading with the s&p down slightly. however, helping the xl why take that position, look at netflix, on pace for it best day of the year after the company blew away net subscriber add numbers. really blowing that away and investors are looking past the relatively small profit. the street is bullish and the stock is having its best day since october of last year. the xl why overall gains are not very big. to -- let's look at two stocks
2:47 pm
-- harley davidson and chipotle. harley davidson did report second-quarter earnings and guided second half sales well below what the street was looking for. thinkstion, one analyst in-house financing could he reaching a tipping point and that could be a future concern. 6%.otle down it had been on pace for its worst day in a year. they were forced to close down a restaurant in virginia after an out rake of illness. it bears similarity to the nora virus. this is not a new issue for chip outlay. this is the longer-term chart and back in october of 2015, there was an out rake of e. coli and the stock plunged 50% and then look at today's big drop. time will tell of course.
2:48 pm
let's move from the rita's to pizza. blaise pizza is among the fastest growing restaurant chain seemed to be valued at $100 million. it go from here and is an ipo in its future? joining us is the blaze pizza ceo. rate to have you on the show. congratulations on the investment and valuation. what do you plan to do with the money?'s not about the it's about what we have done with the folks that rent would and they are going to help us grow. we've changed from an emerging brand to a high-growth brand and we are looking for expertise that can be more successful as we go towards being a billion dollar rentals top scarlet: it's
2:49 pm
not just the valuation from brentwood, you signed a 100 store deal with an international retail franchise operator based in kuwait. what is your timeline for getting to those 100 stores? great question. we will get a handful of restaurants open next year, up to five or six and deal talks about over 10 years, we will build at least 100 restaurants and we believe with the success of reading american brands overseas that we can do much more than that. i look at some of your business history and your expansion in two different locations, how big can you go in the united states? and into international business, where else do you see potential areas for growth? guest: we said from the very
2:50 pm
beginning when we opened our first two restaurants that we will have at least 1000 restaurants in the united states. pizza is a huge category. the five legacy players make up almost 40% of all pizzerias and there's no reason why blaze cannot have its fair share as you look over the next five or 10 years. internationally, once we establish our foothold in the middle east, you have to look at mexicoouth america and and over to europe. a believe there is significant opportunity and you could say we could have a couple of thousand restaurants. scarlet: we have seen dominoes and have a john's feed and have a lot of success using technology to make delivery better. are your franchisees willing to enable people to pay
2:51 pm
for pizza over the phone? guest: we launched an app with mobile pay and it has been very successful. we are transitioning so we will be able to go into third-party delivery with our pizza and we will explore that in a greater fashion at the end of this year. as you know, pizza is delivered. it is a big opportunity for us. it's quite small and we believe we can get our fair share of that as well. learn and are already coming into the restaurant that it is a significant opportunity and we will be leveraging that later this year. do you think that enterprise value of $100 million is little overinflated? and my second question would be does this push back the timeline of a

3:14 pm
folks whothe same voted to repeal obamacare and all of a sudden, they have lost their way. if you take a vote that's not going to matter and then when it does matter, you take a powder, that's not the way we run things. i don't aim the president for being disappointed. he's an action guy and want to get rings done and he's looking at a mall that doesn't come close to anything in the private sector. i love our president and i love what he's trying to do and i'm very disappointed in the senate right now. republicans do own this. when he says we should let obamacare fail, that's a ridiculous thing to say. that could cost lives. guest: i think all of us know that obamacare is in its death throes. what we were trying to do is rescue it. this is not our piece of legislation. it so that fix

millions of americans would have that coverage, but it's not working that way. right now, the president is saying this was not my plan. all of a sudden they'll in my lap and i have to fix it. i have to tell you i'm so disappointed in the senate. if there's one thing i think you sectorn the private coming you cannot look at the model in washington dc and begin to comprehend how works. it just does not make sense. scarlet: there are a lot of things in washington that are broken. who is to blame for the fact health care overall has not moved forward in the senate? is it mitch mcconnell and we drafted the bill in secrecy or is it moderate and vulnerable republicans? guest: that's a good question. they could answer that for themselves. you do the right thing for the right reason and get things happen but too often, you have

congress moves forward whether it's on tax reform or health care. what should be the next step or should just move ahead to tax reform? guest: i think we are going to give it to tax reform, but with infrastructure, we see their tax dollars at work because you see things that went on in ridges being rebuilt and runways and rebuild and all the things we need to do to get our economy going. let's get people back to work and get incomes rising. inherited when i came here in 2011, we inherited a badly put together health care plan that put us behind the eight ball. i just came out of a ways and means midi and we will do something that is progrowth when it comes to taxes, something you could do in a postcard with

3:19 pm
guest: i do. i believe in the current administration of president trump and what he is trying to. in six months, look at what we did on the energy sector and what we have been able to do to roll back executive orders that were holding people down. getting a supreme court justice in there, we have done so many good things, that gets washed aside because you did not get health care done. we got americans thinking ahead again and i know the markets are going to go up and down, but there's more optimism in western pennsylvania when coal miners go to the white house and they know this is a guy who is going to keep his promise, we are winning and we are going to continue to win. we are going to keep moving forward for the american people. scarlet: you are considering taking on senator bob casey in 2018. what do you need to see for you to jump into that race? guest: i want to get through

july and tax or. running against senator casey is something that is down the road for me. when you get up every day and they can see things happening, they are going to take notice. it comes down to what did you do today. the jew keep your word to the people you promised when you ran for office? i get up for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to make sure i've done something that folksit easier for the back home who sent me to represent them. i don't know who all voted for me. some of them democrats, some of them independent. nobody in pennsylvania thought he could win pennsylvania except the voters and those folks turned out in great numbers because they believe in donald trump. i believe it's right here for us right now. julia: thank you so much for your thoughts on the health care bill. congressman mike kelly of and

kevin: one of the reasons i was talking about vix is that it tends to come back up a sonically. there's a 30 day indicator of what the markets are anticipating. we are in the heart of earnings season and what really moves its earnings and part of it has to do with the interest rate environment as well as the dollar. if you compare it to 2007, what was the sentiment like? the dollar was significantly higher and interest rates were significantly higher. weakerar, the dollar got and that's why i was trying to compare in that regard. the vix only closed one time below 10. we closed nine times below 10 this year. abigail: you could see a big spike higher.
