12:03 am
could make inflation worse and not better. the white house estimates that it would cost the federal government roughly $10 billion. earlier this week in economic advisor to president obama and the former treasury secretary in the clinton administration called the plan a gimmick. it says it does not fix the root cause of the soaring gas prices. we have analysis from co-host david faber, and the plan with the feds to fight inflation, and from nbc news, kristen welker on the president's push to bring down gas prices. ahead of the july 4th holiday president biden today calling for a suspension in the gas tax. >> i fully understand that a gas tax holiday alone is not going to fix the problem. but it will provide families some immediate relief. >> reporter: he is asking congress to hit pause on the federal gas tax for three months.
12:04 am
the government taxes gas at $.18 a gallon, much of that money going to the highway trust fund that pays for road construction. white house officials say that the proposal would cost $10 billion. they insist that they can find the funds elsewhere. the president also said prices could come down as much as one dollar a gallon, if states will suspend their gas tax and oil companies increase refining capacities. drivers are expressing mixed reaction. >> every little bit helps. i would like to see more but i will take a little bit if we can get it. >> we cannot buy anything for $.18. >> reporter: at prices are down from six cents last week, thanks to a drop in global oil prices. but some top economists warn that this could add to inflation with many republicans blasting the move. >> this ineffective stunt will draw president biden's other ineffective stunt on gas prices. >> reporter: even some democrats are lukewarm. >> i support it but we need to

be honest. it will not show dramatic change unless the states follow suit. >> reporter: it is not clear that there are enough votes to pass it, speaker pelosi saying that we will see where the consensus lies. >> kristin walker reporting tonight. a recession is certainly a possibility, so reassuring from the fed chair jay powell, he testified on capitol hill today before the senate banking committee. powell tried to reassure lawmakers that the fed still have the ability to fight inflation. >> we both have the tools we need and resolve that it will take to -- on behalf of families and businesses. >> with inflation on a 40 year high, powell says more rate hikes are likely on the way but democratic senator elizabeth warren cautioned that could end up raising unemployment without lowering inflation. >> you know what is worse than high inflation and low on
12:06 am
implant? it is high inflation and recession with millions of people out of work. and i hope that you will reconsider that. as you, before you drive the economy off a cliff. >> powell admits it will be challenging for a soft landing, meaning the feds cool of the economy and brings down inflation without causing a major downturn. is a tall order. cnbc correspondent, elon -- now. >> arguably the most powerful person in the global economy but while powell says that he has the dual to flight fight inflation, he spent most of his time today saying there are limits to what the feds can do. >> we know our tools cannot affect certain aspects of inflation. there really is not anything we can do about oil prices. we do not have tools that will address the practices that you are discussing. >> will the fed interest rates
12:07 am
bring food choices down for families? >> i would not say so, no. >> the economy adjusted instrument rate is a plot it's too, that choke up demand in the process. lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are trying to push pilon what else could be done. by the white house or by congress. >> i'm not trying to get you to endorse legislation. look, mr. chairman, we have a mess here. okay? inflation is hitting my people so hard they are coughing up owns. >> the fed is an independent institution and powell try to stay out of the politics. he said that the chairperson and the recession are not elevated right now and no one is good at forecasting. >> certainly a possibility but not our intended outcome at all. certainly a possibility and frankly the events of the last few months around the world have made it more difficult for us
12:08 am
to achieve what we want. >> powell stated unequivocally that interest rates will continue to rise, but it is not clear how far or fast the feds need to go to get prices back under control. >> elon, thanks very much. for analysis david faber is with us in the late night. good to see you. the fed says they might be able to bring inflation down without hurting economy but a tricky proposition. >> every day we seem to have a different decision that the market makes, called a soft landing. the question is, can you really raise rates to the extent that powell is talking about? pushoff inflation and bring it way down but not slow the economy so you have a recession. or if you have a recession, a mild one. that is the question that we are talking about everyday. >> on the gas tax holiday
12:09 am
proposal urged from the president, is that a political gimmick in your mind? or is that something that can have a real effect for families? >> it is not clear if it will have a real effect and not even clear if it will get past congress. which i think you know when we have heard about as well. the biden administration is focused on gas prices of and have taken to task the oil industry, a real back-and-forth on what the problem may be. like many things i do not think it is black and white and there is a lot of gray, very unclear on whether it will have a substantial impact on terms of whether they were able to get the gas tax to go away, $.18, $.24 for diesel, only for a period of a number of months but during the driving season. >> yes. and the markets, the last couple of days it looked pretty good. did we find the bottom? how do you see it? >> do i look like jim cramer to you? i ask him that and i do not have an answer for you. what i will say is that what i
12:10 am
continue to hear is a lot of uncertainty as the fed continues, back to what we were talking about, to raise rates. if you don't know when they will stop and what they will stop at, what the ultimate rate is and when that will be, it could be difficult for the markets. we can see a bear market rally and there are many market participants that are afraid to fully commit. >> we will see what tomorrow brings. david, thank you. the day after the shooting, the last time that the mayor of uvalde, texas said that he got a briefing on the school masker there. and he is not happy about yesterday's public hearing on the investigation. >> we had the bozo the clown show it in the senate today. >> why he is accusing the state's top cop of lying and we are learning of a new move against the police chief, pete arredondo. what looks like an agreement on new gun legislation in the u.s. senate, is now threatened in the u.s. house.

12:32 am
chair now plans to issue a subpoena, to pressure dan snyder. in a statement, a spokesperson wrote, it is clear the house oversight committee investigation, the outcome of it is set with the washington commanders, predetermined from the beginning. hopefully the committee will utilize resources going forward for more pressing national matters instead of an issue of football team addressed years ago. lawmakers today calling on roger goodell to ask dan snyder to step down as the owner. roger goodell told them that he does not have the authority to do that. kevin blackstone now, professor at university of maryland, college of journalism. kevin, good to see you again. you covered the team for years. what you make of the allegations in the first place? and the fact they are only coming to light in such detail now. >> well, "the washington post" it looks like we will have beth reinhardt, actually got their
12:33 am
hands on the report, the report of the $1.6 million settlement to a woman who claimed that she was sexually harassed by dan snyder back in 2009. they actually got the report back in december of 2020. but did not have the details of it until just now. those allegations coming out and making the situation even uglier than it was before. and so i think today you saw the outlaying of this entire case for the public. what struck me about it is just the fact that if not for the opaqueness of the investigation by the nfl into the washington football team's workplace culture, in the first place, there may not have been a hearing. and if not for the arrogance and obstinance of the owner of the team, dan snyder, who is somewhere docked on his yacht
12:34 am
in france right now, rather than appear at this hearing, may just have died down today. but now we have the threat of a subpoena, which we do know that someone will be deposed. and he will get swell or two when oh to testify what has happened. so in a lot of ways the nfl and dan snyder, really of cooked themselves in this situation. >> the scandals have really surrounded dan snyder, and for that matter, other nfl owners for years. and what point of your estimation did league and team owner say, look, enough is enough, you've got ago. >> the thing is that dan snyder is roger goodell's boss. he works at the behest of the owners, which is why they pay him $60 million a year, i think that was his last take from the league. so he did his due diligence today, which was to stand up
12:35 am
there and take all the arrows from folks on capitol hill, while dan snyder was in europe doing whatever he was doing and thumbing his nose basically lawmakers on capitol hill. so, you know, at what point do they decide to call dan snyder on the carpet, and to push him out? i think only when it affects their pocketbook. and, you know, the cynic in me has looked at this kind of like the wade donald sterling existed in the nba for so many years, despite that he was such an onerous owner. dan snyder is not a threat right now to other owners in the league. his team is not competitive and so far he does not cost them money. and as bad as any other owner may be in this league, they can always point back to washington and say, this guy is worse than i am. >> kevin blackstone, said

12:44 am
likely they are certainly committed to the idea of it. whether or not they will fully engage with it i think is something viewers have to judge for themselves based on what they heard. >> right now at feels like in this climate, the one today but not the one they planned for, today they must be making money hand over fist. >> last year they made $23 billion in the president says that is more money than god. then i will point out how much apple and google made more money than god because they made multiples more than exxon. at this year given gas prices, exxon will have a great year. one question we ask in the financial market is what they will do with all that cash, put it back in the ground to produce more oil and gas? devote even more money to reduce carbon through capture or hydrogen or biofuels? all things still on the common what we examined closely in the documentary tonight. >> thank you. cannot thank you enough.
