"varney & company" is next, stuart, have a great show. stuart: the obama team hoping for a rebound. the start of the economy is not not. the economy's performance is good a little better, but disappointing. we are still shrinking, that means we have to rebound strongly to salvage of year and avoid recession. a lot of people are left behind here, 70 million have no emergency cash. all right, enough with the negatives. this one you're going to love. gmail introduces an undo send.

anger and outrage that we bring you this story about isis. an extremely graphic and disturbing new video caming to show religious purity prisoners being car bombed and some drown in cages. we will not show you the video. and ralph joins us at 9:45. watch out. >> the state of the economy, we're contracting. now you couple that contraction with this. according to the bank rate-- that's it bank rate. 37% people don't have not emergency savings. ashley: 29%, one in three americans the highest number that bank has seen since they surveyed five years ago. only 22% of americans have six month's worth of emergency savings, which is what every
9:03 am
financial advisor will tell you you should have. so you know let's face it 80% of people don't have the necessary savings. 29% have none. stuart: when you say non, no emergency cash that means-- >> they're living paycheck to paycheck. by the end of the month there's nothing left over. stuart: it's a shocking number. deirdre, what do you make of it? >> it's indeed why we're seeing at least from a political standpoint, all the lobby to raise that men mum wage and a lot of people saying listen i'm working two jobs three jobs, can't pay my monthly bills. stuart: that's not going to work is it? i don't think it will work. >> well, i think it's a step in the right direction, i mean. stuart: i don't think you legislate wages. if you legislate wages you will bring in technology to get rid of more expensive labor, that's what happens. ashley: i don't think a raise in the minimum wage will enable people to have six months of savings. stuart: so there, deirdre. >> smackdown early in the morning. stuart: i've got a story you'll
9:04 am
love, netflix, what a stock and more affordable. here is the story, if you have one share now, you will have seven after it splits that's what it's going to do it's going to split and a move like this for a dynamic company often gives the stock a boost. already it's going to open up more than 4% 18 $19 higher close to 700, i think, deirdre. >> close to 700 indeed and carl icahn looks like a genius and buying in when it was $58 a share selling around 340. if you wanted to be mean you could say he left half on the table as you just alluded to there, but-- >> carl icahn buys at 58 and sells at 340 and he's left from near 340 to near 700 on the table. >> a seven for one stock split.
9:05 am
it doesn't change anything to the way that netflix is run, it makes it more attractive for an extra person or average person i can buy at 100 a share. >> at one point you could buy eight facebook shares to one netflix and now that changes. stuart: certainly does. a bit later i want you to compare what happened with apple. i think you've got some numbers. ashley: i do. stuart: we've all been there, including me. ever wish you could take an e-mail back? now you can if you have gmail. all right, deirdre. >> i love it. i don't know if you remember this billboard, stuart and ashley, from microsoft office and it said warning this has a reply to all function. and it was just a very simple billboard and i remember it it seems as if gmail, you have between five and 30 seconds. stuart: that's not bad, pretty good. ashley: you go into settings and look under general, you go down you click the box for, you know undo send and then
9:06 am
gives you a choice from five to 30 seconds how long you get to change your mind. >> it's fantastic. is that enough time? that's enough to take away the knee jerk-- >> at least a minute. stuart: what this is all about is not you fire off something in anger and want to take it back. we've all done that. it's that you fire off something perhaps intimacy to someone it's not supposed to go to. ashley: that explains that stuart. stuart: and that is and you know it. >> and explain, you've been speaking with the co-founders there page and-- >> a great way to start the show. move on. check dow futures, please. the latest proposal from greece has reportedly been rejected by greece's creditors. not much reaction to that. we're down 70 points and now the futures we shall see. the u.s. did indeed spy on
9:07 am
france, three french presidents to be precise. france is not happy. and come in councilman. i believe that everybody spies on everybody else. if they can. this allows the french president hollande to beat up on us wicked americans, that's the top and bottom of it? >> you're right. the french are notorious for keeping track of american officials in paris and so this is an opportunity for french politicians to bang on americans, to get political points at home. stuart: i suppose we have to bow down and apologize and say, we'll never do it again and that's rubbish, isn't it? >> yeah well i'm sure i'm sure the ambassador-- our ambassador in france had a very interesting conversation with their folks on their foreign ministry.
9:08 am
>> i want to get to something more substantive and that's this catastrophic hacking. we understand that maybe 30 million people have had their personal information exposed to china essentially. what are we going to do about this? we can't get the information back, but do you think we should retaliate, go after the people who did this too, retaliation, do you think we should do that? >> it's a very good question and these are the kind of conversations that we should be having here in the government. you know i always say if north korea launches a missile into san francisco we know how we're going to respond and they know how we're going to respond, but when it comes to the digital world what is a digital act of war and what is an appropriate counter measure. these are conversations we're having in small areas, but as a whole we need that coming from the white house. stuart: you're a former cia guy. >> yes, nine years as an undercover officer. stuart: you know all about
9:09 am
retaliation on the dark side of things, don't you? [laughter] [laughter]. >> i do a little bit. i can't tell you, i don't want to have to come up to new york and have to grab you. stuart: oh. it was a pleasure. you can come on the show anytime you like. thank you very much indeed. all right, three more big name companies we've followed them closely and then making headlines. lauren do you have them? >> guess what you can watch seinfeld on hulu all 180 episodes are available at a cost of $150 million for hulu. this is a generational move. it's hulu's way of introducing the younger audience to seinfeld and introducing seinfeld fans to hulu. hulu has 9 million subscribers, owned by our parent company, 21st century fox and comcast. for an additional $9 a month you can get show time too.
9:10 am
and showcasing their newest line of toys these are wearable, connected, interactive toys that are very expensive. we're going to give you a preview before they hit store shelves coming up in the next hour, 10:20 eastern. and does whole food cost your whole paycheck? they're being investigated by new york city overcharging customers. they will report any items that have been incorrectly weighed or priced. why it explains it. >> you just have to have the receipt. >> this goes back to 2010 and good luck finding that receipt. >> i keep all of my chicken wrappers and receipts and sandwich wrappers in a drawer. stuart: come on get real. this is the people's republic of new york city by mayor deblasio going after the people's republic of whole
9:11 am
foods which is jam packed pull of obama-- full obama stories. >> the department of consumer affairs and they say other super markets are guilty as well. not to vilify whole foods, but most egregious by far. especially the one in columbus circle. stuart: and they've got a libertarian leader. and the head of the epa say that critics of climate change are not normal human beings. look at me. and the white house easing restrictions on paying ransom. the judge joins me on this next. >> you start paying ransom you're going to have more kidnappings. we had kidnappings in the u.s. before lindbergh because we paid random. we've had very few after lindbergh because we don't pay
9:12 am
ransom. you can't pay ransom. it's terrible. it's heartbreaking. ♪ i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet?
9:13 am
9:14 am
9:15 am
>> the obama administration is expected to announce today that it will allow hostages families to communicate and even pay ransom to terrorists. all rise judge andrew napitano is here. judge i would expect you to say that the government has no right to step in and stop you from negotiating with kidnappers to get your child back or to get your relative back. you would say that? >> your expectation is correct, there is no law, there is no statute prohibiting the victim of a kidnapping to negotiate with a kidnapper. when i say victim i mean the family of the victim. it is the president exercising his domain over foreign policy by which he prevents that from happening. so when you negotiate with a kidnapper and the government doesn't want you to they charge you with something that they can find in the statutes because the actual negotiation
9:16 am
is not a crime. stuart: now they're not going to do that. >> apparently not. he's going to make some announcement at 12:20 this afternoon. the intimation according to our friends at wall street journal that he's going to let the families negotiate on their own. stuart: that's your libertarian position, government get out of it. >> i would argue it's the constitution's position but we go through this every day and i'm going against the tide here. stuart: and mayor guiliani said on this network, you allow negotiations, you pay ransoms and you'll get more kidnapping and you say? >> he might be right, but i think if it's one of his children, or one of yours or a dear relative of mine were we would do everything humanly possible to try and save them. i think he's talking more policy than a personal relationship. stuart: if someone close to you was kidnapped and you're-- you've got to pay the ransom
9:17 am
of course you're emotionally involved in the situation, but politicians and leadership is not involved in that personal relationship. >> wait a minute, is the president going to announce today that the government is going to pay ransom or the government will not prevent the family of a victim to pay ransom. stuart: the latter. >> the latter is a natural and constitutionally protected right to engage in a voluntary commercial transaction with somebody else. you have my son, you want a million dollars. i give you the million dollars, you release my son. none of the government's business. stuart: what happens if the president, as he did, released bowe bergdahl out, a desserter and gave them five taliban generals? >> in my view a terrible and reprehensible trade. i can only assume that the president knows more about it than i do and we do because on its face value on the little that we know he gave away far more than we got. stuart: now we've referred so far to overseas kidnapping and the payment of ransom.
9:18 am
what about domestic? my relatives are kidnapped, am i allowed to negotiate with the kidnappers? >> the fbi might not want you to because they might believe you're interfering in their effort to save the kidnap victim. however it's often a far more controlled environment when it's domestic. stuart: you know what rudy guiliani told neil the other day, look before the lindbergh kidnapping in the 1930's there were a lot of kidnappings because ransom was paid after lindbergh there was a rule you don't pay that ransom and the number of kidnappings dropped very very sharply and for the long time the only capital punishment in the united states was for spying and treason and kidnapping. >> capital punishment was
9:19 am
imposed tore kidnapping even if the victim survived. capital punishment was imposed and nobody died. he's correct about that. kidnapping has a very very unhappy ending. the baby dies and they prosecuted and executed the wrong man. it's a disaster. stuart: you don't know it's the wrong man? >> history tells us it's the wrong man, that it's a conspiracy and-- >> history tells us there was a real trial not long ago-- >> this was a reprehensible trial in which the government listened to everything said and they had a german translator and it would never pass muster today. stuart: i bow to your historic knowledge. >> it's a new jersey case and-- >> i'll back right off. thank you, judge. up next water restrictions in california, don't you water your lawn. golf courses brown fairways get this?

it's affecting personal hygiene. don't take showers and use dry shampoo. full story next.

9:24 am
made californians less clean of their bodies. products like dry shampoo, a big boost in sales. deirdre, what else are they doing? >> here is a tip, do not ride public transportation in california, but really, the scandal is all of these helicopter shots of lawns that are very green, swimming pools that are full. so, maybe the average person-- >> belonging to the celebrities? >> yes, perhaps. ashley: have you ever tried dry shampoo. >> i have. i'm glad you asked ashley. yes, it works. you can cheat for a day on it. stuart: you don't get into a water shower. >> true it's like hair spray. it's a spray almost like a spray powder. stuart: really. >> it gets you by 24. ashley: it works? >> how could a powder with no water work. >> some people use it because they should preserve the hair's
9:25 am
national oil. >> and i like ashley scooping both of us. stuart: are we now to believe in hollywood california the greasy look will be in. ashley: no. stuart: are they into taking fewer showers? >> it seems they are. and california that silicon valley crowd are committed to causes even if it means suffering for the common man and sitting apart. stuart: a reservoir or two. >> turkish bath bring them back. stuart: we are calling netflix the stock of the year. it's troubled. watch it open even higher moments from now. it's doubled.
9:26 am

9:29 am
>> where they're limited in between innings. in the right side gonzalez leans in and over and hang on. >> oh did you see that? sports highlight of the night from a cubs fan. he caught a fall ball while holding his baby son. i've got twin baby girls.
9:30 am
>> granddaughters. stuart: i could not have done that. okay. here is an update for you before the market opens, more anger from france. france's prime minister says the u.s. must act fast to repair the damage from nsa spying revelation. act fast he says. the opening bell has rung and they've started to trade. we are down not much, but 14 15 points in the early going. the real story is netflix. can we take a look right now, that thing is up and i mean way up. it just got even hotter actually. it broke 700 a moment ago. and that's a new all-time high for netflix. here is what we've got to be offering a commentary on the market, ashley webster, deirdre boulton and shah. apple got a huge pop when it had its split. could we have the same for
9:31 am
netflix? >> i think we can. apple rose and i think we could see the same thing with netflix. i'm not a huge fan of it, but it's worth the ride. it's getting a nice pop and i don't know if it will go 35% higher, but a ways to go. stuart: ken, you're not exactly a stock guy, but you're watching netflix. is it going to get a nice pop with the stock split? >> you'll probably get a pop, a $100 stock instead of 700. this thing has a p.e. of 177 and decent revenue projections, but it's high wait for it to fall back after the rally from the headline here. stuart: dan, you're such a downer. come on-- >> buy it buy it buy it. that's a great buzzer. i say go for it. listen, you're going to get the stock split if you're on record as of july 2nd.
9:32 am
granted probably part of what the company wants to do. people understand this company and more than 50 million in 20 countries and growing every day. why not? >> i've been waiting for it to come down and it hasn't. ashley: it hasn't. there's lots of competition coming on, small fries, but one could ultimately challenge. apple 35% before the split and 7 70% after the split and. >> back a little from where it happened. it hit 700 and backed off a tiny bit. look at it go, 698. i don't like particularly showing charts, but look at this one netflix doubled the past six months. look at the chart-- we showed you moments ago. take a look at an apple chart from post the split, look at that. that's a straight up movement if ever i saw one.
9:33 am
not bad at all. the big board meanwhile, this is wednesday morning, we're two and a half three minutes into the session and we're down 67 points. now 70 million people do not have any emergency savings at all nothing. this is paycheck to paycheck living, okay? shah galani is that an economic indicator? >> it is an economic indicator and a national disgrace and this is the richest place and people have no savings. it's what the administration has not done. we've touted new jobs, but the back story is the jobs that are being created are part-time jobs and don't pay the wages and are not career oriented jobs. stuart: dan, come in we shrank at .2% in the first quarter of the year. what do you make of that? >> a little better revision than before. and it looks like the consumer was coming through more so than
9:34 am
expected. if you break everything down it does appear that the first quarter was seasonal. weather factors and west coast ports and since then we've seen better numbers, but on the second quarter, i want to see a solid number. i want to see a rebound, otherwise we might have difficulty going forward. i'm confident we will, but i'll look close. stuart: how about greece they reportedly had their latest proposals rejected by the europeans. i'm tired of the back and forth in or out? what is that decision going to be, dan? >> i'm surprised this didn't come down further when they announced they were further apart. whatever decision we get, stuart, this isn't a final stigs stigs-- decision it's one part played for years. stuart: what do you have to say? >> this is a dog chasing its tail and a matter of time
9:35 am
before they default and-- >> no way, they're broke and never will pay the money back. >> 351 billion they owe and they're asking to pay 1.7 billion and-- >> it's extreme in between the average citizen and corporations in the past ten days alone, 4 1/2 billion have been withdrawn, so even average people are saying let me get to the bank let me get something. we have no idea where it's going. stuart: i'm going to move on there's something called meet me. it makes games and apps. and it's a big winner today. nicole, i can see it's up 22%. that's not
9:36 am
bad. nicole: right? anybody would love that on their investment in one day. up about 23% at the moment. meet me shgs, m-e-e-t, small market cap, you mention social chat much like facebook and the like and that's basically what's behind the company. 80% of the users of using on mobile. you can be friendly a go on meet me. >> got it, thanks, nicole. look at whole foods. would you believe they're being investigated by new york city for overcharging customers. ashley, they're not exactly known for low prices to start with. ashley: the joke is whole paycheck instead of whole foods. the reason is we're paying extra money for, you know, items that have been misweighed so consumers pay more. stuart: that's the allegation. ashley: that's the allegation. what upsets me they settled in california last year paid $800,000 for the the same thing and cited since 2010 for the same offense. they can't claim i don't know what you're talking about. they've been violated repeatedly. stuart: i was making light of it. >> no it was a sting operation, as ashley said there's track record in california. 80 items they tested eight different locations in new york
9:37 am
and found the same thing. basically people are being ripped off not quite enough to notice and the funiest line to me in the response is of course, if you think something happened come back and we'll give you a refund. and are you saving every chicken wrapper and receipt from whole foods? >> probably not. all right, i want to move on to what's called the amazon echo and talk about gee-whiz. amazon has had a speaker, it plays the music you want and answer your questions. it's wireless and sits in your house. you can ask it questions. deirdre, this sounds really neat. >> it sounds neat and stuart it knows how to handle english accents by the way, just as a caveat here. they won't just take off, but specifically that line, i read it and quoted for you. >> very funny. stuart: by the way, it's called the amazon echo. we've got it here and i'm going to talk to it for a whole
9:38 am
segment asking it questions and conversing with the speaker. ashley: in english. [laughter] don't talk on top of me or the thing won't answer. it will be 10:15. amazon echo. i've got to leave time for my favorite story of the day. take a look at google stock, it's not affected by the story, but it's about google. now you can unsend e-mail from your gmail account. shaw, lots of them would have liked to have taken it back. >> i wish they had it years ago ago would have taken it back. stuart: what about google? >> it's a little rich for me i think it's a little overpriced right here. stuart: come in dan, i want to know on a personal basis, have you ever had senders remorse? >> oh stuart i can't count the amount of times in the last week, i pressed that buttton,
9:39 am
oh, no wrong one! this is a good service. how much money is makes for the company i don't know. stuart: good point. ashley, his point is this we've fired off e-mails in anger. ashley: yes. stuart: but what this little thing will do is to stop you from sending it to the wrong person. >> yes. oh it went to the boss. you've go the five to 30 seconds. go in the settings under general check a box for unsend. five to 30 seconds. if you can do it in five seconds i would suggest 30 seconds. >> i'd probably need more than 30 seconds. but reminds me of google goggles. and they made you make sure you didn't have one too many at the pub and made you do a
9:40 am
mathematical problem. maybe you're not up at night sending e-mails. there you go. stuart: look at the share price of staples and office depot. new reports of a deal that may not go through. really, there's a deal to get them together. regulators get you every time. they might get this one, but they're both down. now the french drug maker, a french drug maker developed something similar to a nicotine patch to fight peanut allergies. deirdre you've got little ones, i'm not sure if they're sensitive-- >> i'm glad they're not. they have to sit at their own tables and they're sort of put in isolation. >> the stock run-up was late yesterday when the news came out. small drug makers aren't for you? >> they're speculative. you catch the right ones you
9:41 am
can go to the moon, but too touch tough to take when they go down. stuart: and some loss is because of boeing and it effects the overall average. chilling new images from isis what they call religious purity. we call it flat-out barbaric murder. colonel ralph peters next on that. the real question that needs to be asked is "what is it that we can do that is impactful?" what the cloud enables is computing to empower cancer researchers. it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome; with the microsoft cloud we can analyze 100 per day. whatever i can do to help compute a cure for cancer, that's what i'd like to do.
9:42 am
9:43 am
9:44 am
>> the u.s. has been caught spying on france and the french are not happy about it. they are scolding us publicly. all right, ashley what are they say? >> sacre bleu. >> they're listening to secret communications why francois hollande and others and summoned the u.s. ambassador to
9:45 am
france to have her explain what's going on. and they'll explain what's going on between the president and francois hollande. stuart: what are they saying? >> it's outrageous and what are you doing? and the u.s. saying we're not listening to mr. hollande's conversations, but not saying that we didn't do it. stuart: now, something very very serious indeed. isis. they've released a new seven minute video, it's too graphic disgusting and gruesome we're not going to show it to you. it's about the execution of almost 20 prisoners some of them blown up in a drone style attack and others being drown in cages. all of this for religious purity. lt. colonel ralph peters is with us. frankly ralph, i'm beyond outrage. i don't think we in america just let this go with no response whatsoever, but i think that's exactly what we're going to do. what say you? >> that's exactly what we're going to do. it's astonishing to me at a
9:46 am
time when you have the islamic state destroying beginning to destroy one of the oldest ancient sites, palmyra where rome met the east. what is the american elite concerned about, they don't want a guy to put a confederate flag on his pickup truck. what the islamic state is doing to human beings and ruins and when you add that's their culture stuart this morning something sdruktruck me, something hit me how can they just look at this and palmyra and the light went off. the commonalty between the slmic state and global left they want to erase the past to build their amnesiac utopias.
9:47 am
better look out. if somebody wants to build a utopia, islamic or socialist, someone has to pay the price. stuart: the caliphate has introduced a gold coin one gold dinar and they're going to establish a state with a currency and with an armed force. this is the state and they've created it it's there. >> yeah, the state, caliphate state exists right now and it's putting down deep roots and there are a number of things that we refuse to understand certainly the obama administration refuses to understand about them. one is you cannot have the kind of success islamic state has had without real popular support. that doesn't mean that many or-- that doesn't mean that most people in the region support them. of course not. but two kinds of people do
9:48 am
support islamic state and their numbers are substantial. first there are those in the region who believe that islam needs to be purified. but the people we miss the more passive supporters who just want security we tell ourselves that every human being wants freedom above all. no, they don't. they want their sons and daughters and families to be safe. they want the streets to be orderly and that's what islamic state does give them. if you play by the monstrous rules-- monstrous to us you get the-- the look at the latest video, drowning people in cages and beheadings and blowing people up in cars with ied's. this is their brand. you've got to think of it not as monstrous videos this is the latest installment of spider-man or ironman or "star
9:49 am
wars," got to keep the fan base going. stuart: i don't like showing this on our air. i don't, i find it disgusting and outrageous. what are we going to do about this? >> well, obviously, it starts with the commander-in-chief and you've got to relook not only at the islamic state and base of support. you've got to unhook disconnect. war making from behind everything can be done humanely and-- >> president obama because he wants to be a humanitarian doesn't want any casualties on the air strikes or-- because he doesn't want casualties we condemn millions of people more every day to live under the islamic state and a lot of them don't like islamic state. as long as you state the kurds are making progress against
9:50 am
them while we ignore the curd except for little air support. they grow with more foreign fighters and we're not taking this grotesque thing seriously. stuart: thank you, sir. i've got to move on and look at the big board. we're now down 67 points. the economy did shrink in the first quarter of in year so that's what's taking the market down a little. plus, more worries about greece. how many times have i said that in the past years. the latest poll in the 2016 field. trump surging in new hampshire. hillary among the democrats in very firm control. we have another story in just a moment.
9:51 am

11:03 am
let me give you a little details on this one. a study from an economist in chicago and berkeley california say that thunder weatherization assistants program, you know, you insulate your house, the government gives you $5,000, but you only save $2,400 worth of energy. i know you disagree with me, but make your case on the other side. >> well, thanks, stuart, i mean, first of all government or nongovernment,an we all know that one of the best investments we can make in a older home is energy efficiency, and the benefits outweigh the costs . stuart: hold on it happen come on. you can't just blindly ignore this study. >> let's get to the -- stuart: $5,000 in taxpayer money, $2,400 out in savings. you can't just ignore this. >> that study looks at this good program, which is designed to help low-income families save energy cost and
11:04 am
make their homes safer and more comfortable. and so some of the costs that they're looking at are for things like, fixing old wiring or getting as bestose out, or despite those costs the energy savings has taken halfway to paying for the entire cost of the home improvements those are good savings, that just shows you how much energy there is through this program. it's a good program. no question. stuart: no question about it. okay. indiana's governor says he will not comply with president obama's epa regulations on clean air now he says, look. indiana, we're not going to do it. get away from us. what's your response? >> well, i don't want the people of indiana or anywhere in this country to be suffering from air pollution that's going to ago and these elevate asthma attacks respiratory problems, and the big picture on the president's
11:05 am
plan is to do precisely what you were saying the pope for all of us to do. and that's to assume the responsibility and cut that dangerous carbon pollution that's driving climate change. we can do it, the president's plan is there that will let the power companies the most cost effective way to hit the target . stuart: our environmentalist prepared to go to these states like indiana and say you're going to have to pay more for electricity across the board. you've got to pay more, and by doing that, you will reduce the temperature by what is it? .0002%? are you willing to make that argument against the governor? >> we're certainly people how important it is to fight climate change. but our analysis shows our families are going to save $100 a year on their electricity bills because this plan will help me hep to promote energy efficiency, helping our families do more with less waste. that's important and we are
11:06 am
talking to states. . stuart: i do hope you get out there to indiana, and you're sure of them that these cleaner air regulations are going to save them money on the electricity bills, and the price of electricity will not go up. go on. tell them that. >> save them money and save them lives. . stuart: thank you, bob we appreciate you being with us. >> thank you steward. >> a little bit of sarcasm in the air . stuart: and a low form of it. and let me get to the markets for you because we're now into our 11:00 hour. if you don't know what we do, this is our third hour. we're not just stock -- >> it is? . stuart: excuse me. we're not just stopping the show that's the old days. now we start at 9:00. >> 9:00 a.m. stuart: stay say it again with a british accent. >> 9:00 a.m. steward . stuart: who is ashley webster? >> a business news channel he joined in 2007 as its oversees

11:08 am
2.77. i want my two cents back. the report of being behind in the housing market. why is that. >> this is the front page, by the way, of the wall street journal and the poor had been left out of the housing recovery if you look at cities like atlanta and those 50% of homeowners are under water they own more money on the house than it is worth, and that's only 15% of homes. few are things going on here. these owners have not seen wage growth, they're not getting toast mortgage recredit, they've got shaky credit and something happening right now you're not going to like this in washington. should the the government amend taxpayers pay down some of these under water mortgages that are backed by freddie mac and frannie may? he and he's caution about the idea, he says if it goes through, it would be limbed. but they're talking about because of these poor
11:09 am
neighbors that are . stuart: okay. so the deal would be we the taxpayer go into his poor neighbors subsidy the mortgage so the people can stay in their homes. >> so they don't go in foreclosure . stuart: it's a bailout of certain parts of the economy. that's the propose. >> that's the propose. they have to already be in the foreclosure process though. but we would rescue them. it's a bailout . stuart: it's a supposed bailout. >> yes. stuart: of tough real estate market. >> right. because these poor neighborhoods -- it's looking pretty bad and trenton new jersey is in trouble parts of ohio, parts of wisconsin. . stuart: flat out bailout. >> no. it's like tax money . stuart: so we haven't done it yet. >> no. it would happen next year if it happens . stuart: all right. now, this tennessee is the most tax friendly state for retirees. that's according to market
11:10 am
watch. wyoming second. >> wyoming not a -- most of those states almost except wyoming don't have personal income taxes. so that right off the bad is good you're talk about florida, nevada, texas washington, these states obviously a friend because there's no income tax. some of them do tax you on your dividend income or retirement income. but overall what happens in these states is their sales taxes tend to be rather high in response to having no income tax. not the case in these particular states. so if you're looking to go and retire somewhere tennessee is a pretty good place to start. . stuart: would you spend some time -- >> i just spent ten years in nashville, tennessee. i love it . stuart: i have been told it is the retirement capital of america, more so than florida. >> yeah. it is a very cheap cost of living, no taxes on your income.
11:11 am
weather's decent. it's all of those things puts together. >> yeah. prices in florida have been -- an issue on home. >> they have. >> and that's the whole gamble. stuart: especially price for housing. >> yeah. housing is very affordable in tennessee . stuart: do you know the answer to this question inspect in tennessee is there a state tax. >> i don't know. i know there is in florida. . stuart: is there an estate tax in the state of tennessee? excuse me. alexa, is there an estate tax in the state of tennessee? >> i can't find the answer to the question i heard. >> that's interesting. >> okay. google, stand by. . stuart: all right everybody we have the dow industrial now down 57 points, 18,086 is where we are. very serious subject next.

hostages. captain, this cries out for a response a sharp edged response, i mean that's what i feel emotionally. do you think this administration is going to do anything? this is one in a long series of outrages like this. >> yeah. no, i don't think the administration is going to do anything differently than what we have been pursuing for some time now, which is to try to get the sunni put some emphasis on the sunni. the only demographic that can change the course of events on the ground are the sunni tribes and there's only one tribe, the major tribe, and that's the only tribe left. and if isis can co-op them through this kind of violence, to intimidate them to do what has happened to some of the weakening tribes, if they can get them to do that, then this
