care fix, george w. bush on the late night circuit. samsung developing the skills which wipes your phone clean if it were to be stolen. they don't want. coming up tomorrow's business today, nothing says that more than robots. ♪ dagen: where have you been? stuart: hitting me with too many questions. the dow below 15,000. dagen: i have to say 50. connell: we are up by 13 points and lauren simonetti, good
morning. >> we have the nasdaq and the s&p working 2 days of losses and about struggling to stay in the green, 16,000, retail sales pretty solid. boosting consumers' stock, discretionary beating the market higher, looking at what we saw from existing homes sales 3.2% in october and consumer prices falling since 2009. that is how the overall market is reacting. let's look at yahoo! shares of 2 present today and up 78% this year. they are aggressively into their buyback program adding $5 billion, the most recent just announced. connell: president obama meeting with state insurance commissioners pushing his fix for americans dealing with canceled plans. dagen: rich edson has a read, how many are on board with the idea. >> a handful have been down
since they will do so and allow the president to go forward. the president announced his accommodation last week he would allow state insurance commissioners to carry that through. insurance companies could be issue the plan that has been canceled because of obamacare and the insurance companies would have to say a okay and the insurance commissioner would have to sign off. a handful said yes and handfuls said no, association of insurance commissioners have said what has taken a year to phase out these plans would take long to reissue those plans, not a quick fix but could lead to higher insurance rates this year. as the president has the insurance commissioners at the white house and at a time when poll numbers had a staggering drop for obamacare up this morning showing the 81% approve the president's health care law, a 12 point drop in the last
month, 61% disapprove of the law and do so strongly. there is a tough optic problem for the white house and that is why insurance commissioners and every time there's a crisis or problem the president to ends to call in relevant members of communities to show they are being proactive on the problem and he needs to convince them to allow more people to go and reissued the old insurance plans especially if they lost their insurance that they wanted to keep and if they go to the marketplace they can't get on to it because there's a website problem more they find prices are too much. dagen: with more we are joined by lanny davis, counsel to president clinton joining us from washington d.c.. so good to see you. this is turning out to be a case study what not to do in a crisis. still not getting so many parts
of this right. >> the crisis management if i could -- in crisis tails, get all the ducks out. and if you mess up. and, will pour hillary clinton introducer health-insurance plan. and the fairness everyone had access to health care. and if i have as a liberal democrat every other democrat in crisis management terms to hit the reset button and start to look for a bipartisan solution to fixing these problems. dagen: bipartisan solution, you pointed this out, private companies and insurance companies have been in the business of operating private exchanges and they should, the white house should have invited
these changes in trying to fix this problem, that would be a concession, democrats like private business can do it that the federal government, that is something they might not want to admit. >> hard to understand why they don't want to admit it because the department of health and human services, secretary sibelius' it a tough regulation regulating these private websites such as ehealth.com which is my client, severely regulated requiring to display all the insurance plans even though they didn't have commission agreements so regulation is in place, detailed agreement in august, if president obama has and the won, ever mention the private sector solution until he talked about insurance companies which are only going to sell their own policies and these websites all like amazon.com, they display all the insurance plans, websites and the private sector,
helping solve this problem, it is about a year of competition in the private sector by government bureaucrats who want to preserve their own territory rather than the goal of the legislation to sign people up. dagen: do you think the white house, the people in the administration completely understand the fear that some individuals are experiencing? policy will talk about the vast majority of americans are insured under their employers and look at this in terms of your numbers, not that many americans as a percentage but dino people who are losing their insurance at the end of the year and they are flipped out. these are people with health problems that they won't be covered come january 1st because they are not able to sign up. >> everything i say especially on this program that i support president obama, voted for the mensa for the affordable care act but there's nothing worse than a message that suggests
five%, only five million people are threatened or 10 or 15. how about one that is promised something that isn't given what the promise was, you are not going to lose your policy. our democrats, this is our mess and we have to hit the reset button, find republicans to work with on the private sector solution as partner with government, not replacing government and if president obama is watching this program, i have reason to doubt that, at least hear my voice. as a liberal pro obama affordable care active democrat i am saying use private sector exchanges to directly connect to the federal government and sign people up to a direct connection the way states are allowed to and not to use insurance companies which are going to sell their own policies rather than private sector exchanges that have been successful for many years. dagen: great to see you. making a lot of sense in a
situation that is hard to make sense of these days. the book is crisis tails. gave you a little taste of it. be well. connell: federal reserve chairman ben bernanke is still very insuring investors' interest rates will mean lower after the unemployment rate drops below 6.5%, the benchmark to begin sailing back on the stimulus program. dagen: the chief economist at our dq economics, shocker. >> some people would think a pox on the fed meets in december, lower the threshold from 6.5% to 5.5%, keeping interest rates at zero until the economy essentials we hit full employment. by reiterating 6% number, ben bernanke defused expectations and also addressed the issue of scaling back on bond purchases a
couple times, december open for a decision by the fed to modestly cut back on its rate of purchases of government bond. connell: nothing new year. will there be anything new ones janet yellen take over the federal reserve and what would it look like? >> there was a hook at the end of his speech, continuity sentence in the last paragraph that he agreed with what janet yellen said in her confirmation hearings last week, looks like she is going to ease through the confirmation process going forward. there's a lot of continuity here. whether it is the right policy is debatable. the fed could afford to scale back sooner. we are 3.5 years into the economic recovery bubble. connell: are you concerned about that? more people live. >> i am concerned. that wasn't addressed directly by ben bernanke but there was a hint that the feds watching what it called the cost and advocacy
of the program because they don't have experience with these tools, essentials the the size of the fed's balance sheet $800 billion before the financial crisis to $4 trillion where it is going to be fairly soon so the fed doesn't have experience. i do see the fed concerned about financial stability, wants to get out of this over the coming months but no hint that there is -- the fed is about to start raising rates and we could have a debate but the fed is pretty clear between ben bernanke and janet yellen. and the next year-and-a-half. dagen: in terms of bubble areas or troublesome areas where do you see the most trouble brewing in terms of the fed policy. >> we don't have the same systemic risk brewing because banks through the financial regulation side hold more
capital going into last financial crisis, could take an awful long time for problems to emerge that the fed have interest rates of 1% in 2004 and did not enter the financial crisis, could take awhile, any place you can see the relatively elevated price of gold to fall sharply once the fed begins to normalize. in the art market with some -- dagen: $3 million. >> was set last week in new york taxi the total prices. dagen: it hurts speculators and rich folks who wanted. >> there is less systemic risk and some of the impacts. that the fed created, flowed currencies and brazil and other
places. connell: it will fall. get a good guy on it when the bubble bursts. crazy. dagen: the royal family brought it. thank you so much. connell: away to what you're smart phone clean if stolen. samsung plan of what it but the carrier's do not want it. dagen: the l a auto show, this is now for detroit, this is where the clock goes to roll out the next generation of cars and you are going to see some of the coming up. connell: speaking of the next generation tomorrow's business, robots is what we are talking about, a number of ways to invest in robots. you will find out about it coming up, markets now. first look at the wheel market and we will be right back.

"the wall street journal" is reporting, connell, that this could happen, could come as early as today. back to you. connell: thanks, lauren. >> thank you, lauren. killing the kill switch. samsung's proposed mobile feature is being met with opposition from wireless carriers. the software would al allow users to remotely disable the smart phones if they're lost or stolen, rendering them inoperable. at&t, verizon wireless and
sprint and others are rebuffing samsung's concept over fears the hackers could find back doorway of enabling a kill switch and disabling someone's phone. law enforcement officials don't see it that way. san francisco district attorney says carriers are rejecting the idea, so they can quote, continue to shake down customers for billions of dollars in theft insurance premiums. connell: only one, only one episode for the toronto mayor rob ford, they canceled his tv show up in canada. it is funny you would think, must have been bad ratings. no, it actually had huge ratings for sun news network there. the problem is, time is money. the show took them five hours to tape the show. then it was like another eight hours, what they're saying to edit the show. too expensive. they can't keep doing this every week. "ford nation." dagen: five hours? call live to tape. you just air it unedited. that is why people would watch it in the first place if they thought it was just raw.
connell: exactly right. that is one of his news conferences but this guy, maybe his 15 minutes, whatever it is. they figured one week and it's out. >> he reminds me of chris farley though. connell: yeah. dagen: president bush on late-night television talking about his health and asked about the health care law. connell: there you go. so that means we'll talk about that with juan williams. cutting-edge autos out for show in los angeles. we'll be taking you there live in a few minutes. so stay tuned for that. pretty cool stuff. markets on "markets now." here is a look at currencies. we went out and asked people a simple question:

connell: lauren is in for nicole call with a couple of retail stocks for us. lauren: we are looking at retail today, retail sales number four october, that was the month of the government shutdown. retail sales rising better-than-expected .4%. you're not seeing any names with huge up arrows. many of them up less than 1% so the retail sector that is taking off may be looking a bit better than many people feared. numbers will be more key as to the holiday shopping if people are definitely going into the stores but w we're looking at te retail sectors with earnings coming out. back to you. connell: a robot could never replace you. i said you were in for nicole. eventually we will all be replaced by robots. we are going talk about coming
up. lauren: what do we do? sit at home and watch tv all day? connell: lauren simonetti at the stock exchange. former president george w. bush and his wife laura made an appearance on jay leno. the host asked about a heart scare last month. watch this. >> when the president had that heart scare, how scary was that? >> it was very scary. >> i wasn't that scared. >> did you have obamacare? connell: what is no laughing matter a recent poll numbers that have just come out, as a matter of fact rich edson mentioned it, cbs revealing 31% of adults approve of obamacare, 61% disapprove. juan williams joins us now from d.c.
how do you turn those numbers around, or do you if you are president obama at this point hashtag >> fix the website, make obamacare a success. that is what we are seeing, his numbers are down at the lowest numbers now and it all happened i think a nine-point drop in the last month and similarly when you look at public opinion on obamacare, it has gone down the tubes as well. a situation where it is all directly related to the failure of the rollout of obamacare. maybe the most damaging number by the way is the decline and the trust. that is the one that is going to have a hard time turning around. connell: it is not just the website, the website doesn't work, we know that, eventually will it be fixed? you hope so. but if you say one thing and do another, that happened, that is much more difficult to fix.
is there something i should have happened and be more so than the news conference last week? that is much more difficult to fix that. >> i would say success is like winning does everything in pro sports. winning here would be making a success over the obamacare program. connell: the democratic side said this could be in trouble. but it could still win with it. >> for sure. we are a month or so into this thing, and long-term rollout in terms of all the consequences, repercussions of obamacare. there are things that may yet be unexploded, if you will. but if you look at the poll numbers, it is not among republicans, it is among independents and really among
big surprise, democrats who see this rollout and say he screwed up, and they are down on the president at this moment, that is why you see the big declines in approval ratings and support for obamacare. connell: they're worried about the next election and whether or not they get blamed for this. maybe it is too late, but why not two or three weeks ago sometime in october even we knew this was a mess, why not just have a reset, shut it down for little while and we messed it up, terrible rollout, misinterpreted, we will stop for a while and we will restart it. do you agree with the strategy? >> if you and i had a disagreement or something, i'm sorry i said that, let's start over. but in this situation there is
something the president said yesterday talking at the financial form would on by the "wall street journal." he said in this lyrical environment they're going to have to restart and rebrand obamacare. what that meant to me was you know what, he is always reacting keeping in mind uniform republican opposition both in terms of capitol hill and the republican public to this idea. they are always cautious, reluctant to admit mistakes, restart for fear the critics will simply overwhelm them and condemn them. their own actions and failures are what are condemning them at the moment. connell: from a political standpoint giving leverage to negotiate, ability to get what he wants. >> that whole process right now is somewhat stalled. it is not stalled over obamaca obamacare. lotta people say it is better these days out of it.
this stalled whether or not you have added revenue and spending cuts. connell: the same old issues. you will know what is going on. good to see you as always. dagen: i love him. connell: he is great. dagen: this is now the hottest auto show. hotter than detroit, new york, this is the one where the new cars gets debuted. connell: let's talk about robots we had more and more of them all around just about every sector in the economy. it makes it more efficient and all that. we are going to about investment opportunities. dagen: is best buy a start two smart stock?

destroy the middle class? there have been articles like that written people make the case middle class jobs in are in trouble because of the productivity gains because of what you and i are talking about. >> i am sympathetic and empathetic to that situation, but we are in a in a competitive world. you could have said the same thing, trains and cars coming at us, this is what we do. connell: it is going to happen anyway. >> exactly. there are jobs, doesn't take a lot to be trained. i can show you a list of people if you look at the boners in the chicken industry. they are looking at people to run these machines. it takes three to six months to get that type of training but
these are high-paying jobs. when they do that they are much more efficient, 10 times faster, less disease. it does not have as much disease especially in health care and the food industry. there is a great business here, a great opportunity. connell: always bring something we don't expect. the thing to be seriously light is he goes out and visits these companies before he invest in them. thank you for coming on, as always. >> thank you very much. connell: there you go. dagen: do you know why i am smiling? i want you to think i'm going to say something totally inappropriate. you know what i am thinking. connell looked really good this morning. it made us very uncomfortable.

you wrote a letter to its go to offer to help out. tell us what you offered and what you heard. >> we have done this for years and years. the amazon.com of health insurance. we wrote a letter to the president offering to help, we will take is over while others are trying to fix the federal government exchange to get people enrolled because at the end of the day this is all about enrollment, not about building a glitzy exchange. dennis: i mention they responded pretty quickly. >> i am still waiting for a direct response. a little bit of interaction, but nothing specific. at this point it is obvious they are not going to use us to do that. fixing what they have and that is all fine and dandy. i hope it works well, in the meantime a lot of people whether you like the law or not, it is the law of the land. dennis: rb at a point this is far more dangerous than technical glitches that they are in jeopardy financially?
>> i don't know that, but it is tainted. the survey results indicate that. getting to the point it is in a turnaround situation, that is how we looked at it. dennis: ehealth in 10 years or so enrolled 3 million people in insurance exchanges, they go on your to shop for this stuff and 40% were never insured before. he may have been an ideal fixer and you helped set up the healthcare.gov information site to begin with a couple of years ago. >> in the first year of 2010 became the law of the land, we put up a website called healthcare.gov which is an information website for the government. we had it up and running in 60 some days. we offered it to turn into a transaction site. they went through the government procurement process and decided to go a different way. dennis: and internal contractor
they had used before. a group that got booted out of canada. >> that was then, this is now. today we have to get people enrolled. one thing i would like to hear the president talk about his use of private sector to help in all of this. he talks about the insurance companies being vilified and demonized in the past. dennis: he has been vilifying and demonizing them. is this why they cannot turn to you? >> if they would just turn to us right now and give us the capabilities to enroll people, we could help a lot. you have to get people enrolled. it is not based on government websites, it stands or fails based on enrollment. especially getting young people enrolled. based in the early things we have seen, that is not happening very effectively. dennis: the sign-ups were pen and paper.
>> look, my kids are in their 20s and they will not use paper. they want to do this at 2:00 in the morning. that is how young people transact and that is how to do it in our business. for the president to really get this to work i have got to find a way to bring the private sector together to deliver on this so they can get people enrolled otherwise we will have different conversations about obamacare. dennis: if they do the sort of committee meeting seven different private exchange offers, it will be even more, located, isn't it? >> i only know one. we have been at this for a long time, let us help, mr. president. we bear all the cost to make money doing this, a us-based company, born and bred, we hire people, we can get a lot of people enrolled right now. we are paid a by the insurance
companies. it cost the consumer nothing. dennis: thank you. cheryl: retail to restaurants to text, someone's manaus companies find themselves and make it or break it mode fighting for survival. today we're going to one of retail's biggest names, that is best buy. rebounding a bit after tanking on the company morning that dress to be reduced holiday prices could hurt the margins. adding to weakness seen in the past month after an impressive year-to-date run-up where the stock literally quadrupled in price. here to make it or break it today, gentlemen, welcome to both of you. you saved best buy is not an investors best bets, this is a breaking moment for the company. why? >> you are seeing operating margins will continue to
deteriorate even after the hit the cost. this is a really good management team making the best of a really bad situation. they are doing everything right to keep the customers who come to their stores. i don't think there's anything they can do to attract customers to their stores who do not shop there now. i think you're going to see continued deteriorating costs, continued margin of declines competing and the cost cuts are going to run out in a year or so. my valuation is just. cheryl: you are saying the price matching isn't going to work. do you agree with that? >> i don't agree with that whatsoever. up 1.7% in the u.s. in the third quarter, the best performance since 2010. talking with operating margins up year-over-year for the last two quarters so i am not sure
what he is doing. may want to press f9 and recalculate. cheryl: respond to that. >> anthony's gross margins are down 11 quarters in a row. operating margin up, that is fine. did a lot of really smart things. our margins are up on cost cuts. that makes sense. if gross margins continue to decline. the comp being up, best performance since 2010, down nine of the last 11 quarters. up twice, down nine, down more than up and it will continue that way. cheryl: you disagree with the price margins. but this is why you say the company is going to make it. you say there is better execution, so you like what they're doing in stores. >> absolutely. it does invent devices, distance
and devices. pull out the smart phone, see amazon has it for $100 less and buy it from amazon. the other thing is shop in shop. samsung and windows, a much better assortment, much better customer service, a much better experience for the consumer. cheryl: you have the sustainability of the turnaround plan. from the hotel industry actually said flat out, look, i don't care if i have to cut prices, i am in it to win it. >> anthony is right, people who come into the store i think best buy is executing flawlessly. we will keep those customers, they will keep the guy from coming in and buying it online. they're going to stem the bleeding. they cannot win a new customer.
if you are an amazon customer are not going to quit going to amazon because best buy will match prices. i bought a multi-juice pack on amazon. i could have printed out and gone into best buy and got a price match, but why would i bother? i am done, i am happy. cheryl: respond to that question. >> it is not clearly only place you can buy consumer electronics is amazon or best buy. they are very strong competitor but a lot of other places trying to take market share. whether it is from mom and pop. there is a lot to go around. cheryl: gentlemen, thank you to both of you, appreciate it. >> thank you. dennis: key on plymouth numbers skewed to help the president.

you see what they're looking for. they want documents, communications, e-mails between workers. e-mails given to the inspector general looking into this as well and documents between the senses office within this behavior occurred and from that and d.c. there are two sources it appears in "the new york post" story. one was disciplined and he has been out of the session since 2011. they are saying essentially what we are hearing is there is no political motivation behind the worker let's go. they say this to reason to believe there was systematic interpellation. we reinterview the people polled and we turned it over to the inspector general. cheryl: at the time he was criticized, this does not look
right. to see that big of a difference, it was an eyebrow raising moment. >> that is right. it went from 8.1% down to 7.8% the jobless rate and picked up 7.9%. in an election year. can one worker swing it three percentage points? cheryl: the data can easily be misjudged. we are always getting revisions of the jobs report. but i can see when the drop was so precipitous. the post reporter probably thought there is something there. >> we're also hearing what action might be warranted to pursue the probe into the senses. they are really rigorous and do

funds and omega fund also bought 2.8 billion shares last quarter and also some management. >> there are other competitors in the space but compared to others there is a split newmont is not a winner compared to a freeport-mcmoran part of that is commodities because certainly this is stated dependent on what we find with gold and copper a commodity that has a lot of pressure over the last year but over the last decade we have been in a deflationary environment push gold prices have done well. the global central bakes are watering currency down baby the goal is a hedge for people in case we do see some inflation in the future cherylt: look at copper like
a long-term chart it has spent one of the more polished tile medals but that is what you are getting copper is the big story it is not cold at all but copper and oil and gas. if you believe of the news out of china is real with a soft landing 7% they are huge consumers of copper and in the united states we see a renaissance of manufacturing and building so sometimes it tends to move ahead of economic expansion and we see that now. >> those minutes are coming out at 2:00 p.m. eastern but people say march analyst thinks they will see a tapir does that impact what you tell your clients?
