good. you can see come up without the even. imagine if the wind was blowing, i shot some video last night before sundown of this fire coming from napa and you can see the wind blowing and blew the fires three quarters of a mile away from where it was burning, basically it's called spotting. firefighters stood back and did what they did to protect homes. i was driving in this area, right next to napa, i was driving along and saw people struggling with cows and pulled the car and helped him get cars into the trailer and off the property so they can be safe from the flames, you saw a lot
of the horse trailers trying to get them out as people were rush to go get away from here and take them to solano county grounds. it gives you an idea what people are dealing with right now. i know at this hour, there are still 17 fires in northern california but three ones are the most active, at least what we have been told in the last hour or two, this one here, 15 miles away around the town of sonoma, new evacuations in area boy hot springs. all the vineyards and wineries are. that area is being evacuated. a fire burning in napa county just to the west, my hometown and that fire has had evacuations, dry creek valley areas, the fires are zero percent containment. we are hoping those forecasts are wrong, back do you guys in
new york. lauren: i know it's early, but the livelihood of the area is the grapes and crops, how do you think is going, most of it has been harvested, are you hearing anything about destruction of the vines? >> well, the vines themselves don't burn very easily, in fact, if you see vines burn that means that fire was burning really, really hot and really fast because they are narrow, they are very wet and green. what it has done is the industry up here. people lose their houses, that's the worst in their lives, that's obviously what we care about the most, once that's taken into account, the industry up here as you mentioned, you have the wine industry itself, you have restaurants, significant number of restaurants, hotels, wineries. this is the busiest time of the year, the end of harvest, there's still a lot of vineyards that have grapes hanging in the vines. in some cases, 4,000tons.
you're talking about nearly $100,000 sitting there and you want to get those off into the wineries but without power, with the smoke and with all the other security situations, making sure your own home survives has made things difficult for the entire industry. that's across several counties. we are talking about billions of dollars here in losses, guys. lauren: all right, adam housely, thank you for the update this morning. we appreciate it. >> all right. cheryl: devastating what's happening in california. moving to the east coast, president trump is pushing hard, well, once again for tax reform. he's going to be visiting harrisburg, pennsylvania, blake berman is in the white house with the latest efforts to overhaul the nation's tax code. blake: we know this is a president that loves negotiation and appears that the tax reform bill fits in the mold speaking on tuesday from the white house, the tax plan is currently undergoing some tweaking.
>> people want to see tax cuts, they want to see major reductions in their taxes and they want to see tax reform, that's what we are doing. we will be adjusting a little bit over the next few weeks to make it even stronger. >> however, press secretary sarah sanders saying that whatever adjustments priorities still remain and till the same. quote, i don't think so. no. the president did continue this verbal tit for tat by tweeting, failure new york times was made to sound a full and that's what i'm dealing with. sanders contended that the president is not putting off colleagues he needs to get his legislative agenda passed. >> i don't think he's alienating anyone, i think that congress alienated themselves by not actually getting the job done that the people of this country elected them to do. blake: people have spoken both
on white house and do not feel back and forth between president and corker have impact on long-term tax reform. as one republican put it to me, it's not like this will help in any form either. back to you in new york. lauren: interesting, before heading to pennsylvania, the president is going to have a meeting with canadian prime minister true due after he threat to walk away from nafta. live 5:45 a.m. eastern time. cheryl: panel coming up later talking about tax reform. all distractions seems to be halting the true discussion, let's get tax reform forward. they just can't do it. we have a fox exclusive to tell you about this morning, new report finds iran nuclear program has far from halted. the national council of iran telling fox newses secret sites of development have been

to the starting block. and remember the utah police officer who was caught on video arresting a nurse because she refused to allow a blood draw, well, he has been fired. salt lake city officials detective violated department policies when he arrested nurse and dragged her out of the hospital, she was screaming, this happened back in july, obviously a lot of controversy over this because she was doing her job and the hospital backed her up. this is our policy, i can't break the policy. lauren: now he's out. png says narrowly lost bid for a board seat at the company but the activists, investors saying not so fast. cheryl: tracee carrasco with the story, good morning. >> won't be sitting at the board of proctor and gangle, p&g said a vote tally showed directors had been reelected but would
wait before accepting defeat. he will appeal the decision. lauren: this is a maker of tide and bounty and they might have added pressure to get that turnaround plan going. cheryl: it's interesting, two different ideas about who proctor and gamble should be. let's go to bump stocks, now lawsuit time; is that right? tracee: yes, a lawsuit seek to go represent the victims of the las vegas rampage filed against makers of so-called bump stocks which the shooter paddock use today achieve automatic rate of fire. proposed class action accuses manufacturers of negligence. three nevada residents who were at the festival does not involve the injuries that of hundreds of people who have suffered or people of 58 people that were killed. lauren: there's an automaker that forget about test drive, how about a test buy.

them and it's not -- they're not getting any moisture into areas that really need it unfortunately. past six hours again you can see zero of threat rainfall over the next five days, we do have a cold front that's marching across the upper midwest and that's bringing showers and thunderstorms here and that cold front is actually dropping temperatures today across the northeast so it was 80 yesterday here in new york, it'll be a refreshing 72 today, still very warm across the southeast and the south, but cooler than average temperatures behind this front, i have to tell you, ladies, we will see the temperatures bump up again as we head into the weekend, little taste of fall and we are right back to summer time. cheryl: i feel like i missed so much of summer i'm fine with your forecast. janice: i like that, very optimistic. lauren: coming up, here is the million dollar question. how do you get rid of a hangover.

who demeans women in such fashion needs to be held accountable regardless of wealth or status. weinstein's wife giorgina chapman is now leaving him, my heartbreaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of the unforgivable actions, they have two children together. cheryl: there was an op-ed in the new york times that talked about the silence of men in hollywood and she said that, you know, she heard the stories and had been known for years and years that weinstein was doing like this but actually calling up the men of hollywood saying, you make movies about women and empowerment but you actually don't empower women yourself and why have you all stayed silent for years. lauren: the sound bite was from 2008. cheryl: troubling story, we are also breaking this morning the death toll of massive wild fire in northern california, now 17. the monster fires burned more than 200 homes and businesses since sunday. more than 180 people injured,
nearly 200 residents reported missing in sanoma county alone. >> resources are exhausted statewide, resources are being brought in from out of state. we are doing the very best we can with the number of bodies that we have and the number of resources we have to prioritize the parts of the fire to try and first protect lives and secondly try and save homes. lauren: there's also wild fire in southern california, that's 40% contained but the fire destroyed 14 structures since monday. evacuation orderers in the region have been lifted but the fires have taken a toll, at least 17 deaths confirmed including the elderly couple. did you see that? they were married 75 years. cheryl: they were 98 and 100 and they couldn't get out. lauren: couldn't survive. cheryl: we will hear more stories unfortunately.

[inaudible] >> i don't think so. no. i don't think so at all. we are well and away. the people in this country want tax cuts, they want lower taxes.
>> president trump has allies on capitol hill like representative zeldin from new york. >> for any senate republican trying to decide whether the president has struck their ego to get to yes, they are to be reminded they're not there to get their ego stroked, they are there to represent their state. >> senate is not in session this week, they cannot vote in 2018 budget resolution next week and they need to pass that if anyone is going to move to tax reform. stay tune. lauren: before heading to pennsylvania today the president will have a meeting with canadian prime minister justin trudeau at the white house the day after he renewed threat to walk away from the north america free trade america. starts at 5:45 eastern time. cheryl: must watch tv when the president speaks. a new report finds iran's
nuclear program as far from halted. the national council of resistance of iran telling fox news secret sites have been revealed. this comes at president trump is expected to ditch the 2015 nuclear deal with iran, maybe this week, maybe next, congress then would have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on the country similar to what we saw before 2015. lauren: yeah. wal-mart wants to be your go-to groceries. cheryl: tracee casual aivelgo joins us with more on that. tracee: wal-mart plans to add 1,000 curb-side grocery pickup locations for online orderers by 2018, double the current numbers of sites, wal-mart anticipates digital sales next year will rise about 40% and they're really hoping that this service will bring other customers back

lauren: good morning, let's get you caught up on what's happening. the u.s. flexing military muscle flying two bombers over korean peninsula yesterday and firing air ground missiles as well all part of exercise with korea amid reports that president trump is considering a visit of the demilitarized zone. in spain catalán separatists are delaying claim of independence to the country. catalonia's president wants to give talk a chance, he's being political. spanish government is holding cabinet meeting on what the next step should be and shown little interest in negotiations. that region is a fifth of the spanish economy that wants to
succeed. 11 million were compromised during data theft. assessed by hackers who also took vital personal information including social security numbers of potentially, potentially 145 million americans basically half of the country, cheryl. cheryl: really glad the irs gave equifax the contract. the new contract. amazing. all right. well, let's stay in washington because all the fun continues today. president trump is going to be hitting the road later on, pushing his tax reform plan in pennsylvania. he will be giving the speech tonight, what can we expect and is the debate going to continue. let's bring in contributor kristin. >> good morning. cheryl: kristin it's all about the politics at this point. we can go through bullet points, a lot of people like the corporate tax rate cut, they like the simplification of the brackets but they are still arguing about getting rid of
state and local deductions across and new york, new jersey, connecticut, all of the congressmen and senators are saying that is just a no-go. are they going to have to change the rule? >> i mean, they might, the bottom line, though, that i think mostly every republican can agree on is that something needs to get done, something. you know, tax reform is really the republicans last chance for a major legislative victory before 2018, they haven't really accomplished much else. they need to give voters a reason to vote for them. of course, no democrats are expected to vote for this plan and republicans can only lose two members of their own party if they want to get this passed. it's all about getting 50 votes and we have seen in the past, even mild descent in the republican party can kill major legislative efforts, this is a tricky situation, but, again, they've got to come together to get something done and getting rid of state and local state income tax deductions can really help when it comes to making
sure that this plan doesn't result in big deficits and also levels the playing field when it comes to federal taxes. cheryl: i know, but we have talked about this, though, people from peter king of new york says it's a nonstarter, raises the taxes on middle-class americans living in high-taxed states, i don't think he's backing down and he's been a big supporter of president trump. mark, i want to look at the timeline because this is what investors will be focused on. if you look at first the senate has to passed a budget resolution, that's the beginning of this thing, right, conference committee has to adopt a bill, chambers have the pass the budget, kevin brady has to release the bill and then house ways and means starts to mark up the whole thing, this looks like a long process, can this get done in 2017 and doesn't mean that investors are going to get what they wanted which is tax reform? >> they probably can't get it done in 2017, they can carry it over in new year, they need to get it done by spring.
if they can get it done by march or april, get it done by tax day, make it retroactive to january 1, they'll be messy at the start but that's the time frame that's probably workable and in our forecast that we are releasing today, we have the impact from the tax cuts beginning in the second quarter of 2018. so i think they get it done but if they get it done it's likely to happen a little later. cheryl: zrrows clarify, the new report that you're releasing, second quarter of 2018, do you think it's retroactive to 2017? >> retroactive to january 1 of 2018. i won't affect the tax probably but getting it done psychologically before income tax day will be a big plus. cheryl: a girl can dream, mark. [laughter]
cheryl: you have mcconnell and corker, war of words with president trump, does this hurt the tax reform debate? >> it certainly doesn't help. i mean, trump's feud with corker can alienate certain republicans like john mccain who are going to be key here and john mccain is one of the people who voted no on obamacare repeal effort. corker and some others have said that they will not vote for any plan that increases deficit. republicans are hoping that he'll come around because this tax plan bus boost the economy but i have to tell you, i don't think it's going to be easy to get him on board. we have to remember that corker has said he will not seek reelection so he can vote whichever way he wants and does not have to answer to voters at tend of the day, this is a real shame because the vast majority of americans want tax reform and most voters will tell you, most republican voters will say that any republican in congress who
is not their pushing that the agenda that the american people voted for should resign. cheryl: it's interesting, mark, too, if democrats decide to dig heels particularly in corporate tax rate, president trump has said 20%, that's any red line, he's very committed to that. that would be incredible boost to the economy, is the message not getting out effectively? >> the message is getting out but there's not a lot of procorporate sentiment in the general population. the whole election was about how the vast middle were left behind. corporate tax reform is essential and we talk about giving a tax holiday for repatriating profits overseas, if we don't fix the corporate tax rate, that money is really not going to get reinvested in economies, it's going to be invested some place where he gets higher rate of return. we need to fix the corporate tax rate and hopefully that message will come through. i think there's a general
agreement, a lot of general agreement in congress that it has to be done. well, the effective rate is 24% but most companies don't have a bunch of lawyers sitting around, a bunch of cabinet sitting around and their effect i have tax rate is statutory rate, that's where most companies are, it's the large companies that can figure to bring the rate down. cheryl: it does help you in your life, look at your 401(k) today because it's doing very well. good to see you. >> thank you. cheryl: stay with fox business, we will have live coverage on president trump's speech. lauren: in sports, it was emotional home f-opener for golden knights and devastating loss for u.s.men socker, we will show you all of the highlights in just a bit. president of catalonia stopping short from calling independence

lauren: president of catalonia is backing off a call from independence from spain at least for now. the markets are reacting, we bring in riva gold to talk about. mixed reaction in europe but positive in spain, riva. >> indeed, it seems throughout the crisis in spain, a lot of the reaction has really remained limited to spanish assets and that's why you are seeing the biggest reaction there this morning with spain back up
substantially, only down less than a percent since referendum. you're seeing a big reaction in spanish bonds, they are trading at the lowest since the vote and you're also seeing relief in the euro, although it hasn't been majorly affected by the situation in spain, you did see it jump about as most in a month yesterday after the president stopped short of a full and immediate declaration of independence. it does seem that you're seeing tentative signs of relief in the spanish assets this morning. cheryl: fun soap opera to follow. we are enjoying it over here. that's fascinating. >> japan is finally catching up to a lot of markets this year. it's banking on uptick on global growth as well as sign that is corporate sector maybe becoming more shareholder friendly that's gotten people encouraged. it's cheaper than a lot of other
developed markets and people are expecting continuation of the same political leadership for a long time which is led to pretty solid rise in stocks and it's still pretty far off record high but for now this is a new record to celebrate in japan. lauren: riva, we appreciate it. thank you. cheryl: let's send it over the maria bartiromo, mornings with maria starts right now. maria: thank you so much for joining us, it is wednesday october 11th, top stories right now, 6:00 a.m. on the east coast. laying out the plan for tax reform, president trump will travel to harrisburg, pennsylvania today to sell his vision to overall our nation's tax code to the american people. >> people want to see massive tax cuts, i'm giving the largest tax cuts in the history of this country in addition to that they'll be reformed. we will be adjusting a little bit over the next few weeks to make it even stronger. maria: what we can expect from the speech today including his plan to bring money back from overseas just
