government run people could be the big losers in all this. connell mcshane will tell you what he thinks about adults who dressed up for halloween. that is all on this hour of markets now. ♪l: they go in the same category of people who wear other people's jerseys. [laughter] dagen: and there were moments he looked a little bit fuzzy. connell: let's go to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole: dow jones industrials up
about three points. we will see if we can stop a major losing streak. you do see some action hovering and hugging the unchanged line. we see names like jpmorgan leaving the names on the dow jones industrials. we are watching apple pull back. dagen: to washington with less than a week of obama's health exchanges up and running. rich: the administration likes to say the fight over the health
care law over. it is not. they are releasing a new report shows eight does slow the increase of cost. the administration claiming 95% of consumers all have a choice of two or more health insurance companies. in texas, a family of four could pay $57 after tax credits for that bronze plan. premiums are higher in states with less competition. republicans, meanwhile, have a
different point of view. >> obamacare has not been fully implemented yet, but we can see the train wreck headed our way. rich: republicans point out that because health insurance premiums are lower than projected, does not make it low weight then they are now. they are just cherry picking information is what republicans claim. a recent fox news poll says seven out of ten voters are concerned. a majority wants to take healthcare system that 22009. most americans want to see it through. they do not want to see it through. october 1. we are almost there.
dagen: what about the filibuster that went all night long? rich: it is ted cruz making good on a political promise here. the senate will pass a government funding bill that will not defined the president healthcare law. dagen: i should have used filibustering as a joke rather than a technical word. it was interesting to watch. rich: it will and around noon. dagen: thank you very much. for the first time, we know how much insurance will cost.
you have standards for what health insurance will be. >> in some ways, people are having less choices. the government is mandating what insurance you get. you have to look at the value that people are getting. he is determining the value. dagen: that "wall street journal" report laid out some of what rich did.
you are supposed to have insurance through obamacare. if young people decide i am not buying insurance, come get me. the math simply does not work if you cannot get young people to sign-up for health insurance and pay for it. >> healthy people will say i would rather pay this relatively small fine then sign-up for this health insurance that i cannot afford. it is mandated to be more than what i need it to be for me. dagen: it depends on the state laws. you can get really bare-bones policy.
to that point and to the penalty that young people would have to pay, the gunmen would have to find you and thank -- make you pay it. >> it is not even that much of an issue. even if they hunt you down, it is not that much money overall. the mandate penalty is not enough to cover the cost. dagen: they reveal that there will be less choice in many instances within these health plans in terms of the doctors you can go to and the hospitals you can go to. there has already been that out in california.
again, that will be a wake-up call for people. cmac americans have wanted choice in healthcare. a majority of americans opposed this. now, majority of americans are against. dagen: there will be government subsidies. is there anyway to know know what the ultimate tally to the taxpayer will be? >> well, it it is going to be big. they say, oh, the subsidies make the premiums affordable. the people are you and me, the taxpayers. dagen: great to see you. thank you so much.
connell: in terms of the markets, history tells us investors may not care very much. we have a chief equity strategist with us now. what about the historical perspective. we have been through things like this before. >> when you look at the history, you know, you remember that as a great time for the market. what you don't remember are the two early shutdowns that didn't do anything. i think what we have to look at is ultimately, they will not shut the government down forever.
first of all, odds on both of those and is the debt ceiling much more important market wise? >> given where we have come from, it could lead to a temporary correction. we are looking at a temporary disruption i think i am listed as the high target on the street for next year. i just traveled for two days in the midwest and traveled with a lot of clients. the unique call here is that nothing is really different.
all the taper talked it was steeped in the yield curve. connell: you are polish then. it is a pretty good run. what is the difference between things are status quo and inflation is still low? >> you have to have a positive correlation. you will probably be plus or minus over the next two or three years. commodities are in a the client.
connell: do not be so insecure. we have plenty of people to make fun of before we get to you. [laughter] >> bring it on. connell: good to see you. dagen: remotes to your smart phone. one company that thinks it may soon have an answer to keeping you powered up. connell: china's online giant ready to skip over hong kong and come straight to the united states. dagen: adults and costumes are, well, exciting. connell: what take a look at oil.

connell: amazon not backing down in the tablet wars. let's talk about that with nicole. the 20 let's take a look at amazon shares. right now, $315.22 a share. they are unveiling two new high definition tablets. if you are not good with technology, one of these may be the right tablet for you. there are so many other features.
big news for amazon and their kindle brand. dagen: i have my original one. i love that thing. nicole: my kids love it. they use it at school now, two. dagen: a new device called an ultracapacitor. the thing would only take about five minutes to charge and could outlast the life of a remotes. maxwell mouth target smart phones and tablet batteries as well. connell: that is actually a really good idea.
national retail federation saying americans are celebrating halloween this year are expected to spend about $75. about 158 million people plan to participate in what are described as halloween activities. that number is down from 170 million. dagen: our stage manager says well, you either dress up as an adult to go to a party or to trick or treat with your kids. both of those are unacceptable. connell: what are you dressed up
as today? [laughter] dagen: it you don't believe in dressing up for halloween if you are an adult. connell: people obsess about hollowing. that is just fine. dagen: that could have been me clean clothes that that poor man or woman had. connell: whatever. one stock lost to hong kong may soon be coming here to new york. ali baba. we will have that coming up.

southwest of seattle and comes complete. the house is assessed at less than $67,000. this piece is being listed for half a million dollars. that is the latest from the fox business network. connell: it looks like the twitter ipo is trending. people can bet on just about everything. a pat on the new york stock exchange landing the ipo, that would not pay big money. twitter would be 35-one.
was that up there? dagen: it yes, it was there, actually. e-commerce giant alibaba moving forward with his plans to go public in the united states. connell: jo ling kent is in the newsroom with more. >> this could be the biggest ipo since facebook. they have set their sights on new york. this is according to the "wall street journal." here is what you need to know about alibaba. it is basically that amazon and
ebay of china kind. the company dominates 80% of china's e-commerce market. a u.s. listing would come at a good time for chinese internet companies listed overseas. of course, yahoo! would get pretty nice windfall if this does go through. dagen: thank you so much. more on the standoff on capitol hill. the senate is set to move ahead.
of course, senator ted cruz has been on his seat for how many hours? neil cavuto is joining us live from washington coming up. connell: dennis kneale will be here talking about whether or not this will be a moneymaker for the network. here are a couple winters we are seeing today on the s&p 500. ♪ [ male announcer ] imagine this cute blob is metamucil.
coming up for you today on markets now. we have neil cavuto standing by on capitol hill. we have judge andrew napolitano. bob geiger's, the agent of shield aired last night. dagen: jcpenney hitting a 12 year low. bill cole, that is rough. nicole: we are talking back to january of 2001. shareholders who have had high hopes. the latest is that a judge makes no ruling in the jcpenney, macy's, martha stewart case.
what is the deal? jcpenney says we will not even have martha stewart anymore. it is all piling up. connell: very aggravating. dagen: at the clock is finally winding down for senator ted cruz. harry reid is expected on the floor at the top of the hour. connell: there it is. moments ago, he offered the democrats a deal of sorts. neil cavuto is live today on capitol hill. he joins us from there right now. i could not believe that he was still talking when i woke up this morning.
what is next? it is a little bit, i guess, complicated. neil: it reminds me of gerri lewis. it is tiring. it is tough. he must be making an impact for senator durbin to come out. it has really gone unanswered by democrats. it must be registering. this offer that you alluded to where this may be cut off at 30 hours is not necessarily being accepted by the senate majority
leader. he may want to rob cruz of a record. he was challenging civil rights legislation at the time. that was then. this is now. to your point about whether this has any measurable impact, probably not. it does remind folks who are already not too keen on this healthcare law to be not to be all over again. dagen: at day by day we are getting details about the impact. we were talking about how much the health insurance will cost in these exchanges.
will i get a limited choice of doctors, a limited choice of hospitals? neil: an issue like this just sharpens that. nothing said or done today will make you like it any less or change your point of view. the dough funding of it will fail. the numbers simply are not there to torpedo this wall right now. the latest law, possibly. the idea that it could shut this off completely is another possibility. the government shutdown is looking a little bit more likely. we could see at least a partial
shutdown. by the way, i want to stress that whether cruz was talking or not, that was the same plan. connell: a lot of inside baseball back and forth on the party now. we are going to go to the senate floor in a moment. we will listen to the majority leader harry reid. before we do that, just click on the intrigue there. does that really mean a lot? neil: when we get these shouting matches, i think that there is a risk that it can lead to ill and bad feelings. to get through worse, we can do
that. i also remember ronald reagan and his first attempt to proceed a president. he failed, but he went on to win. i guess what i am saying here is that, yes, this provides great drama. it shows clear division. it is not the end of the world. dagen: neil, great to see you early this morning. we will see you today and tonight live from capitol hill at 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. eastern time. here some of his gas -- here are some of his gas, mr. paul,

reports that the company is offering amounts to settle criminal and civil investigations. it is all about the mortgage-backed security activity that we reported on. judge andrew napolitano joins us right here right now. is there a danger in settling this? >> there is a danger in telegraphing this to the public. the government has really that it is looking for a number of clues to the 7 billion. this is not something that you want to do on the public stage now we know that jamie dimon is
willing to cough up a billion. if the numbers, outside of those parameters, it looks as if somebody caved. >> this was a nickname given to a traitor. the government has no interest. if the shareholders do not like the way management lost that money. they can both the board out. they lost 4 billion. what was accomplished by that?
this is an effort by the government, pure and simple. whether jamie dimon and jpmorgan are worthy of cannibalization is another story. they certainly are not the blame for the mortgage crisis and 2008. fannie mae and freddie mac are far more to blame. if the government came knocking and said, mr. mcshane, we are contemplating indicting you for at and you said, will you take a dollars? you would be indicted for bribing.
the government is just interested in ash. then it is interested in shifting the blame for its own incompetence to somebody else. connell: -- >> there is some culpability on jpmorgan's part. it may have caused people to have been foreclosed upon before they should have. there are errors in there. $7 billion worth of errors? the government wants another 7 billion? are they trying to help the
shareholders? dagen: judge, it was great to see you. it looks like he is up to no good. connell: what else do we have? dagen: gasoline prices have fallen for 24 straight days. connell: sandra smith joined us from the cme now. sandra: enjoy it while it lasts. twenty-four straight days gasoline prices have come down at the pump. the national average is $3.44 a gallon. that is down $0.10 from just a month ago.
this $3.40 for senate national average we are paying today is down $0.37 from where we were a year ago. they have switched from the summer blend to the winter blind which is cheaper. you also have a drop in demand. this is seasonal after the summer driving season. we are $103 versus $112 a barrel. it is expected to continue. they are predicting they will drop another 20-$0.25 from where they are now. if you were to look at the big
picture in history, we are still paying historically high prices. aaa says they have above 41,000 straight days. that has never happened before. prices have come down recently, but still high. connell: thank you sandra. dagen: i surprise we have done so well with these elevated gas prices. speaking of marveling at something, the agent of shield bearing finally. connell: denys deal will be here on whether this is a moneymaker. ♪ and hearing everything from our marketing partners, the media and millions of fans on social media can be a challenge. that's why we partnered with hp to build the new nascar fan and media engagement center.

it was my idea to do this series, so it would have been a bit harder. dennis:he highest grossing films of all time. they helped write and direct it. not a superhero in the cast. these are all regular human beings. that is kind of a trend. one of the guys was killed. speaking of no superheroes, there is a new show called -- it is in the comic folk superhero lane.

dennis: ion dennis kneale. cheryl: i am cheryl casone. the fed is about to come off. after more than 20 hours senator ted cruz of texas ending his hijacking of the upper chamber. neil cavuto has his take on all this. >> congressman elijah cummings demanding robert benmosche resigned after comparing our rage of execs bonuses. we had the bidding that had. cheryl: he is the top chefs. dana burke is here. celebrity chef seemingly a dime a dozen but we will get his recipe for staying on top in a difficult business. that and more coming up as this hour of markets now begins. first we have breaking news,
live pictures of the senate floor, senator ted cruz just ended his 20 our plus control of the senate chamber so here's what is going on. this is the new day, they have adjourned and become the new day. we will see what you are looking at. the prayer and the pledge and senator harry reid, takes the floor. he is going to vote on the continuing resolution to fund the government and will invoke cloture. that is going to be an 1:00 eastern. after the prayer and the pledge senator harry reid beginning the day and began a procedural vote at this point and this will take as into friday. the debate will go 30 hours on funding the government. this is the house resolution which the senate is expected to take on but struck out the language and this is presented ted cruz who got so emotional
and passionate about this entire thing the house wants to the fund obamacare and the senate expected to strip out that one language and that is something senator harry reid can do. we wanted to show you these live moment in the senate as we have ended at this .20 hours of senator ted cruz of texas and his many filibuster. he took a few short breaks, he did dr. seuss, talked about star wars, a marathon session in the senate and it is all coming to the end. and it has been a very exciting day. dennis: who is in washington watching this drama? neil cavuto. did ted cruz move the needle on the obamacare debate? >> i don't think it will change the outcome of the senate with edible strip out that provision on health care and dump it in the house's laps.
the reality is is altered anyway. and back when he was a filibustering, make a name for yourself and unite the party core behind you and this idea you are not going to accept something with a base event corps, very much offended by this health care law, possibly with this base, seven of ten americans details of which are coming today that there are the more for health-care coverage and even those who are paid at or below what they were if a smaller percentage of americans, and limit in their benefits, no less than the new york times. if ted cruz had done nothing but remind people what was going on think of what happens during a filibuster, not just networks like fox business the people switch around what is this guy doing? green eggs and ham? what is he doing? rally in dance the health-care law, that is the thing i'm worried about, my boss is
cutting back on or looking kind of dicey for me and the kids. nothing more than reminds people of this collective and angst about this it served its purpose standby illustrate that by showing what the beside did challenge that type of view of this, getting senator durbin to challenge comments senator ted cruz was making. it is not going to move an eagle, it will go back on the house's left, get the health care thing out of it and it will be an abandoned budget resolution. the next issue that could come up senate monday when it is in the house's lab is whether it they do piecemeal continuing resolution that fund different aspect of a little bit at a time. it is half-assed but it is history. but this is what we were all about. with you like this or not filibusters do generate attention. in the mainstream media is
interesting when a texas state senator rails against an abortion rights bill, in the texas legislature goes on 13 hours about it she is the hero. this guy in this the mainstream media railing against the health-care law is the zero. i will let you decide whether that is fair but filibusters are part of the process and they're not the end of the world. dennis: harry reid is calling what senator ted cruz did a big waste of time. give us the other side of that trade. lou: you could argue this is a big waste of time. i want to hasten to add, it has not changed the time line harry reid was working on, pushed back as late as we can in the senate, at the last possible minute, back in the house without the health care thing trying it on, put the pressure on them to put up something fast where the government shuts down, it is the republicans' fault, it will look
horrible. be careful what you wish for because you end up getting exactly that. it might not be on the republican shoulders here. nothing senator ted cruz did was going to delay the timetable and nothing did. the eleventh hour dealsmaking will carry us into sunday and monday on the eve of what could be a partial government shutdown. roll their already exploring ways to shut down the government in increments, rolling shutdown. and it has happened 19 times since jimmy carter. dennis: there will not stage at down forever. who is on your show tonight from washington? lou: everybody and his uncle, john mccain criticized this process, rand paul himself who has been a big part of this process and a host of others, a big backer of republican candidates should be
conservative and will give them the cash. rick santorum was one of the beneficiaries but lot more coming. dennis: we will be watching. it is top of the our stocks every 15 minutes, nicole petallides on the floor of the stock exchange jamming out there. nicole: a lot of that has to do with washington. we heard a government shutdown moving and weigh in on wall street because they want to know what is going to happen in that uncertainty and you see the markets are hovering around the unchanged line. it was about 20 points off of its earlier highs of the day, the dow is gaining 13 points, 0.1%. the tech heavy nasdaq is up 1/3% and in the meantime keeping a close eye on facebook whether it gets a $50 mark and watching apple which is still a winner after their new phone launch and we continue to watch other news
as well. plenty of names on the dow doing very well. jpmorgan up, disney, there are plenty of winners. market taking it easy. cheryl: we will see when a few moments. the s&p, and the longest losing streak of the year. and one of the pressure of the market has been facing, other things at play, and why and joins us now. you say the slide in stocks over the past few sessions is no surprise and a piece of this certainly is what we are seeing in washington, correct? >> that is right. we certainly expect there will be some market weakness as we enter the last quarter of the year. we are seeing fewer new highs in the market, in the broader
indexes, particularly weakness in the financial sector, even jpmorgan and goldman sachs, big-name in that sector even though they are up today. we have been reducing our financial exposure but there should be some technical weakness in the market because of the budget talks. watching to see that action, certainly in the fundamental bull market. cheryl: basically looking at a sector rotation, you have your eye on financials from a technical perspective of but what about other things we might be missing at this point if we are so focused as investors on what is happening in washington and distracted by the fed what about what is happening overseas? emerging markets, where the money could be made if we take our eye off the ball right now? >> we think the emerging markets should be something to keep an eye on. number one it has been a
terrible performing area of the global markets this year. in fact a lot of investors are selling very emerging-market exposure and moving that money into u.s. stocks which have been performing much better. so there could be some great opportunities that will be created in emerging-market and we want to keep an eye on that area. cheryl: you have interesting domestic plays and one of them is that texas play where you are, where you are coming from and not southwest airlines and you say this is a value play so you certainly say this one and the other picked that you have, 30% to 40% upside on both of these stocks but talk about southwest. why do you believe in this? it has not been in favor with many investors. >> southwest airlines is out 13% this year. it is called all little bit we think because of the justice
department challenge an american airline merger. it is a well-run airline and the airline business is fundamental. cheryl: stock is up 43% since the beginning of the year. and the stock is up 21%. >> they are both value stocks and growth stocks and we are very excited about celestial group, even though carl icahn recently sold the 15% stake which we think management of pain encouraged him to do, it is an accelerating growth stock on the revenue side and the earnings side. they are a global leader in organic food. that is an area of the food market that has been growing
faster than the standard. cheryl: playing on that momentum as well. we love to have you back on the show. cheryl: congressman versus the ceo. top ranking democrat demanded aig ceo robert benmosche resign over controversial comments he made and liz macdonald has all the details in the bottom line. what is going on? liz: robert benmosche giving interviews to the wall street journal talking about the public outrage over the $415 million in bonuses paid at aig after it got the $1 billion bailout. and the outrage is about public interest to stir public anger and get everybody out there with pitchforks and hangman nooses compared it to what we did in the deep south.
i think it was just as wrong that robert benmosche has apologized saying he didn't mean to offend anybody, poor choice of words, but rep elijah cummings, the ranking democrat of the house committee on oversight got him very upset comparing what is going on at aig to lynching, stabbing, burning where people were shocked in the deep south, here is what he is saying. if it is true he has demonstrated, quote, fundamental inability to lead the modern global company in a responsible manner and resigned immediately. dennis: he said something that upsets cummings doesn't mean he is incapable of running a big company. they did a pretty good job and aig paid back a surprising amount of the $180 million and what i want to do, upset about the racial angle or just upset that here's a guy criticizing
washington which played a big role in causing a meltdown. >> the fact that robert benmosche is comparing the outrage basically to the deep south lynchings and the fact they got a big bailout and this was not the first time, in 2009 it would be better compared to outrage over overpaid underperforming yankee players than what is going on in the deep south where people were brutalized. robert benmosche said also too big to fail is working. the system has been fixed and is saying i got my $39 million compensation job with the bailout so bailout did save the system. dennis: i can tell but wonder if this was manufactured outrage aimed at beating up on the bankers again. jamie dimon was the one guy that criticized washington and facing seven probes offering $3 billion to cover settlement and the government says not enough.
liz: you can't bring up jamie dimon. a lot of wall street workers could have taken the aig job. dennis: we got to go. we are in a hurry. the company that invented the office cubicle and the chair you may not be sitting in unless you are a company's chief. we are here with the ceo herman miller next. cheryl: watching gasoline prices moving lower across the country especially in california. sandra smith at the cme looks at some ways to go around gas prices.

between macy's which originally had the deal but later made another deal and this is still going on, the judge said that there will be a ruling in a short time rather than a later time pertaining to this debacle. in the meantime those shares to the downside, j.c. penney new lows and goldman sachs accommodations of weak inventory rebuilding and underperforming in the department, just hit those liquidity levels and underperformed on the company. dennis: thank you. durable goods orders this morning reported in higher in the month of august expected to decline, a positive sign for companies like herman miller, creator of the office cubicle. jeff flock is at the herman miller design yard in holland, michigan. jeff: herman miller, did you ever wonder what the offices of the company that is perhaps the premier office furnituremaker look like? you need to wonder no more. i am here with the man who runs
an all, brian walker, ceo of herman miller. since 2004. i got to ask what is going on in washington first? i know government is a big part of your business but more importantly stability in the market is a big part of your business. what about what is happening in washington? >> the general move on the budget to get the budget control cause the government by the industry is a big impact but more importantly our industry trains paula on business confidence, people are confident and have a long run they need a fair amount of time, build a new building, every time we go through one of these budget wrangling deposits business to get nervous and causes the industry to not get full growth potential. dennis: got some pictures of that but look in here first of all, the inventor of the office cubicle and i don't see any cubicles. where did they go? >> what we would all work station is alive and good. a big bank last night we were
selling lots of them. what is changing as more and more people are integrating this idea of your work and life coming together. what we see is the office changing, the way places want to go, you hear about work clubs, things like starbucks, more and more companies have this combination. dennis: i am looking at what i see your corporate offices and everything you tell me that i see here you make. >> that is correct. >> amazing. >> we started our lives as a home furnishing company, do things in the technology realm, we have this ability to look across the entire floor plate from the things you do in casual meeting spaces to formal meeting space and individual workspace and private offices so we can do the holding. >> making the office more like home and home a little more like office. we will be here all day today. the next hour we will show you the lab where you test your furniture and put them through
some amazing tests. >> herman miller products, we guarantee everything bumper-to-bumper because our customers want things that are going to last, that are durable and timeless. >> brian walker exclusively on the fox business network, one workspace. we should redesign our offices in new york. we got budget for that? dennis: i am sure we do. cheryl: coming up why the people of south africa may soon be quoting a number simpson's line donuts.
>> 28 minutes past the hour your fox news minute. ohio used its last available dose of the execution drug this morning to execute harry mcjr. who was convicted of killing a neighbor and a police officer responding to the shooting. he was the 26 person executed this year and the third in ohio. the cost of mailing a letter could soon be going up. the postal service has proposed a rate increase for services that would include raising the cost of a first-class lltter from $0.46 to $0.49. a preapproved would go into effect in january and would
raise $2 billion in annual revenue. postal service expects to lose $6 billion this fiscal year. heading farther south, n.c. doughnut chain expanding to south america. it deals with the subsidiary to open 25 stores over the next five years. the chain has 800 stores globally and those are your news headlines on the fox business network. back to dennis. dennis: gasoline prices tumbling from 24 straight days to the lowest national average since january. the good news is more price breaks may head our way. sandra smith have played as in today's trade. sandra: economists are predicting gasoline prices at the pump are going to fall another 20 to $0.25 from where they are today. the national average $3.44.
and if you go back your ago, around $0.37 as a national average so the trend certainly lower and crude oil prices come off of those two year highs in the syrian concerns that boosted prices, hundred dollars a barrel and we're back with breaking through the $100 a barrel mark and as that happens gas prices continued to come down, the 24 straight day, lowest price since jan. 30 first earlier this year. not only do we have record refining happening but less demand, the driving season is over and also shrinking crude-oil prices, how do you play this in the stock market? look at the oil companies. what happens is if you still have crude prices above $100 a barrel and gasoline prices getting cheaper, into their margins, something you want to know if you are hanging on to
any of those big oil companies in your portfolio. this could boost them and be a negative for their earnings growth but that is the way to look at it but stock market nonetheless crude which had been higher earlier in the session now down on an inventory report we got this morning so that would be in line with the bearish sentiment as far as gas and oil prices. cheryl: fox business all-star showdown and we are days away from the beginning ofn showdown. oliver porche and robert luna will be back to go head to head with brand new stock picks and their reputation is on the line. q austin, the music, the winner. takes home this.

nairobi. officials receiving forensic support for the u.s. britain and canada. and the president confering security forces killed 5 suspected terrorists and apprehended 11 more. the siege has left 70 dead and scores more injured and concerns malls and other soft targets at home go to a similar attack and brian finch about that and -- of paula stewart title. >> global securities attorney. dennis: what do you say? i think it is overkill of malls in tiny towns feel like they are vulnerable to a terror attack? >> first thing you need to think about is what kind of attack was this? basically a military operation. not the kind of thing you will see in the united states. if you read the initial reports terrorists crude served machine guns getting through porous border with automatic weapons and buying automatic weapons.
and having enough explosives to implode them all when the security force came in and that is not what we will see in the united states. >> and shooting up some people. the fact that our nsa is looking at so much e-mail traffic and video chat. and whether the nsa, a big market in new york city. >> that we don't know whether they came across the or not or sharing information, and this is a larger point regarding the issue of ed snowden, nsa for years, to intervene on these on the front end. and the potential rollbacks in terms of their collection of information-have a erverse effect where if we have more privacy and decrease collection of information it could increase the likelihood of something happening not necessarily on the scale of what happened in kenya
but could be something more dangerous than we would have liked. dennis: a prominent mall like mall of america in minneapolis monitoring the situation, time warner center mall in manhattan basically very upscale. if an attack happened where do you think most of the public blame would go on law-enforcement, preventing or knowing about it or the mall owner for not being secure enough and where should the blame go? >> obviously first and foremost from public relations perspective it will go on the mall owner, didn't have the right guards or cameras, that is not true. the mall for years have been ramping up, and the center for shopping security put out training courses. and rangers international, u.s. security associates worked with the department of homeland security. and to maintain an open shopping
environment to the public. in reality if we suffer an event like this it would fall on the shoulders of the u.s. government because if you allow militants to coming, a choir at the weaponry, conduct a coordinated attack from multiple directions, that is the responsibility of law enforcement. dennis: good perspective, appreciate it. cheryl: you have probably seen him on television, maybe you have been to one of his restaurants, his town house may be. david brooks is going to be here. dennis: netflix about to face head winds. that story ahead in media minute. um... where's mrs. davis? she took an early spring break thanks to her double miles from the capital one venture card. now what was mrs. davis teaching? spelling. that's not a subject, right? i mean, spell check. that's a program. algebra. okay. persons a and b are flying to the bahamas. how fast will they get there? don't you need distance, rate and... no, all it takes is double miles.

cheryl: household names these days, the event keeps growing and growing. with 30 years of experience in the culinary world, eight restaurants and always on that joining me here. one of the interesting things about you is you are not stopping, it is cookbooks and new shows. the city is beside new york and the pressure to be on your game. is that competitive? >> it is competitive and when you get to a certain point, you have to grow and feed employees and the opportunities are there
so we are expanding in this year, two in chicago, aspin is going to open in january and on 38th street in march. and other opportunities out there so we take the good deals. cheryl: and bloomingdale's, and you are famous for town house, and he to say this. and it is that 15%. and a food cost inflation, and the new health-care law. >> i get to it in a minute but as far as food costs we are at a site where we can afford to buy navarrone trucks and go to the market and cut out the middleman. the cost has gone down a couple of backups and we built a nice infrastructure with the new president and director of apps and we are running it like a company should be run and that
takes awhile to get the shaft's mentality into the business mentality if you run it correctly. cheryl: speaking of health care one thing we're seeing are the big restaurant chains. is not the culinary expertise, the major chains are cutting back, the thing about hiring each staffing level because of the health-care issue. what are you doing? >> we have to roll with it. we have 600 employees. each employee will cost as $1,000 per employee with health care. the money has to come from support, raise prices, operate smarter and we can't avoid it. so we will see, roll with it as it goes. certain big companies try to cut hours and inject two jobs and we try to avoid that but we don't have all the answers. cheryl: one of the things entertainment weekly wrote about your gig on rob lowe, an opportunity, to miss the semi
inappropriate quest, wrote about you. you have this whole personality going. >> the show is great. tonight is the finals. i made it to the last of the final, it was a great show, great to compete, great group of chefs on the show and it reminded me of why cooking is so much fun and challenging. cheryl: i want to show our viewers you have cooking with david bird, working on another cookbook and also -- >> opportunities to create products, smoked salmon, these are 20 years old. the beverage, out going free sparkling, and patent on dry aging be. so i try to keep my hand out and stay relevant. cheryl: the business of food. thank you for being here, nice to meet you.

and robert eiger on this show yesterday said netflix will have a tough time cornering the market. he said that to investors earlier in the day and disney was likely to make new of original shows for amazon and google. that means netflix can these higher costs for tv and the original shows and cable systems and amazon google fed up those prices. a new survey put cable systems on notice. 70% of the with which we could order cable, price waterhouse coopers report out today fines of 70% of us want to split up the cable, 65% would buy a ten channel for more, 69% basic cable, surprising almost 60% would buy sports and 72% said they would a $2 a month per show, 50% will pay $3 a month. channel. the overall debt that is that is a lot cheaper than the cab bill monthly really is which is why you are never going to see it happen. cheryl: so interesting, the emmys on saturday night with the
