maria: joining conversation jason is with us this morning. former speaker of the house and author newt gringrich is here, judge andrew napolitano and former new york city police department commissioner along with intelligence vice chair ray kelly. big show ahead. don't miss a moment of it. top story and that's taxes, president trump will head to harrisburg, pennsylvania later today to pitch tax reform plan. the president will speak before nearly 1,000 pennsylvania workers including truckers who he will address specifically. according to senior white house administration official, the president says americans are ready for reform. watch. >> people want to see tax cuts, they want to see major reductions in taxes and they want to see tax reform and that's what we are doing. and we will be adjusting a little bit over the next few weeks to make it stronger but i will tell you that it's become very, very popular. maria: bringing money back to
6:05 am
america will be focus of speech, excerpt of speech tonight reads the following. now we have it for you. we will eliminate the penalty on returning future earnings back to the united states. we will impose a one-time low tax on money currently parked overseas so it can be brought back home to america where it belongs. council of economic advisers estimate that is this change alone would likely give typical american household 4,000-dollar pay raise. kevin kelly, let's talk about this for a second. first time we are hearing about details of the plan, we have the embargo details he will unleash later, the one-time tax, do you think that's the key point in moving the needle in economic growth or corporate tax rate to 20% and pass-through rate at 25%? >> we knew it's a bipartisan issue. we saw it actually in the previous administration's budget. hillary clinton had it in her budget, we just didn't get any details. what does the one-time low rate
6:06 am
mean. is it 10%, do they have to reinvest in property plant equipment? so when he ties $4,000 to american paycheck that'll be pretty interesting. does that mean they'll be contingencies on money coming back. what's notable is this will come back, it's in what form, can they get the democrats to come back over and work with them on some other things. this won't impact the deficit which tends to be where the democrats have gotten religion and they are going to put -- state their foot in the ground. this is pretty interesting. we are starting to see economic data do very well in this environment. think about the manufacturing data that's coming out. the durable goods, economic indicators are doing phenomenal, this will help it further. dagen: in terms of the deficits, you have seen liberals, democrats turning into words about national debt and deficits
6:07 am
and now i will point to one thing, the solution to debts and deficits is faster growth and you get faster growth through tax cuts both corporations and individuals. wall street journal has editorial today pointing to congressional budget office report on friday that the budget deficit for fiscal 2017 grew for the second straight year. the disturbing thing is that spending only grew, only, 3% overall for the year which is -- it's relatively tame for the federal government. the national debt doubled during president obama's time in office, the reason is, because the economy wasn't growing fast enough. that's the solution to any budget. maria: they were spending like sailers, 10 to $20 trillion under obama. >> sailers and not women at a department store. [laughter] kevin: that's the biggest problem tieing tax reform to budget deficit is a false
6:08 am
equivalence because the problem we have is where are we spending the money on entitlements, medicare, medicaid, social security, we also have other part that we spend on is the military and the problem is that if you get tax cuts, you can help pay for those things, right, because they are going to have growth and there's going to be higher payroll taxes. >> the key to thats if they are gng totick to, you know, budget neutrality, revenue neutrality and if they do, then that shrinks option to tax reform and tax cuts and i thought it was interesting that the president didn't make distinction between delivering tax cuts and tax reform. tax reform is a lot harder to do. you were talking where there's bipartisan consensus, we are seeing that on reducing corp. tax rate and, of course, the question is by how much. the democrats want a little bit higher than republicans. maria: committee for responsible budget continues to say that tax cuts do not pay for themselves and tax cuts do not necessarily pay through themselves through growth, we haven't gone down
6:09 am
this road. for the last eight years we have been living with 1 and a half, 2% grower of this economy, once we get past 3 to 4%, you will see the plan. >> we have seen spending going up, up. maria: that's true. >> you to cut spending so you can balance the budget. kevin: getting back to maria's point, we had 1% gdp, 2% gdp, guess what happens when deregulation started to take hold, 3% gdp print. that was just deregulation. based off of fiscal policies it's realistic. dagen: if growth reaches 3% for even a few years the treasury is going to get a wind fall of new revenue exceeding current estimate and entitlement reforms are important to controlling deficits but without faster growth, there's zero chance. maria: that's a great point. before the president touts tax
6:10 am
reform tonight he's expected to meet with justin trudeau at the white house. the two to discuss nafta after trump to slap duties in airlines and lumber exports. persuade that méxico is the biggest hindrance and not canada. listen to this. >> a great, great negotiator, ron, how about negotiating some of the horrible trade deals? [laughter] >> i would love to have ron. it's great to have you around, but i mean to have that, if you want to get around in negotiating nafta, i like that. maria: the president threatening to pull out of nafta unless changes are coming. even throughout all of his talk about that, it really was méxico who was he was most worried about and not canada.
6:11 am
>> that's right, that's what he was focusing on. he campaigned about rolling back nafta because of jobs being shipped to méxico and when he talks about keeping jobs in the united states, we are bringing those factories back from méxico, not from canada. he didn't point north as being a big drag on the united states economy. maria: when wilbur ross joined us in the part, the canada part of it wasn't the one that needed tweaking. >> we want to have the keystone pipeline coming from canada to the gulf so we have a lot points of cooperation when it comes to the united states. kevin: a lot of it does happen up in canada, that's one of the biggest reasons why we've had such a great recovery because car sales have done well specially on suv side and a lot of that does happen in canada and not only méxico, in order for nafta to be -- you can't get rid of nafta because it would halt all economies, we need to revisit and that's what wilbur
6:12 am
ross was sating, update to 21st century. dagen: i love how the president says nafta, nafta. [laughter] kevin: my favorite is china. [laughter] dagen: that would make my hair stand. maria: speech tonight at 5:45 eastern. we will take you live to the president's tax reform speech which of course we have to details just a few minutes ago. 5:45 eastern. more accusations this morning, angelina jolie and paltrow accusing harvey of sexual harassment plus disturbing tape that alleges reports encounter with young model. we will find out if the back to back hurricanes affected the company's bottom line and what they're expecting the rest of the year.

maria, well, a busy week for active investors. it's only wednesday. closely watch shareholder vote at proctor and gamble's meeting. david, activism reporter for the wall street journal. david, good to see you this morning. >> thanks for having me. essentially, we have to wait. he's arguing the result as announced by p&g at the meeting that he lost. shouldn't have been announced. it was too many paper ballots
6:25 am
and counting by hand out there and so they will go through certification process. eight weeks, depends on how long, so many votes and we will see from there. kevin: one of the interesting aspects of this -- of nelson at p&g it's on retail investor, the largest campaign for activist shareholder on record. do you think the retail investor in paper ballots could help him over victory line to get board seats? >> it seems like he lost a pretty big chunk, 7 and a half percent of the stock was held by employees and retail people like that. he lost that it seems like. the rest of the retail, we are not sure where they came in. it's not sure it will pushed over the edge. kevin: so he pretty much lost. maria: look what he was able to do with dow chemical and dupont.
6:26 am
he has been able to move enormous companies, look at ge yesterday. secured a seat on the board of general electric. this guy has been enormously successful in moving huge companies to do what he wants. >> yeah, exactly. he will argue even with the vote being so close, he will argue and he already has, the shareholders spoke up, p&g needs to change structure. p&g needs to change attitude to investors and he's got the mandate that if p&g missteps -- he lost the vote close two years ago. they missed the earnings target they promised they were going to hit and ceo was fired. maria: he lost the fight but won the war on that one. what do you think, dagen? dagen: does it benefit average shareholders, somebody who owns shares to make it clear to your retail investor why it's important? >> that's the big debate about activism, sit good for the
6:27 am
long-term, i think the employee vote probably show that is employees are worried about activism still, cost them jobs all of the time -- maria: they are cost-cutting. >> the retail -- the index fund vote is interesting here. black rock and state street appear to have voted for peltz, went for the company. those are the ones that argue were here forever, we need long-term interest in mind. so if some of them are starting to go for peltz, that's pretty interesting. kevin: you have the big fund companies which are passive investors actually swaying how the board is compromised. they are not supposed to be involved. >> they have massive teams inside to handle votes -- dagen: these mutual fund companies even though they own the shares passively through
6:28 am
index funds, they take the votes seriously. >> for sure. exactly. maria: don't forget the adp story with bill. >> yeah. maria: retail investor call. more about just institutions, the retail investors are on this. te took -- >> different than a few years, everyone ignored the retail, if they did, there's almost always per management. there is -- there is a debate right now and i think that helps when you see the stock go up, retail people see the stock goes up. >> what is the activist strategy to get votes on his side? >> a lot of phone calls, facebook posts, it's really reaching out digitally these days and trying to make the points. >> political campaign. >> very much a political campaign. kevin: honeywell, you name it, activists are all over the big
6:29 am
multinational corporations. you even see warren buffet and pulled away, it's pretty interesting this is where the battleground is. maria: i want to point out that the journal did a report taking a look at the reports of spin-outs, the spin-out companies have performed the broader market. you keep getting success like that you want say, yeah, we like activists, thank you so much, david. david from the wall street journal. bringing you the breaking news, the president tweeted this, he say it is stock market has increased by $5.2 trillion since the election on november 8 up 25%, lowest unemployment in 16 years and if congress gives us massive tax cuts and reform i'm asking for, the numbers will grow by leaps and bounds, make america great again. it's all true, the market is up 25% since election day and you
6:30 am
are talking about a sizable $5.2 trillion. >> the dollar has declined, down 10% for the year and that's why you have a battle of two markets, you have the s&p 500, which is doing exceptionally well but russell 2000 has not kept up with that. dagen: real quick, trump, president on the way up, if he falls, he's putting the blame on congress. [laughter] >> how much of this is what alan greenspan might wall exuberance -- maria: there's a debate on that on the valuation of the market. 18 times earnings, we will talk about that. we want to look at puerto rico's crisis next. more people now reported dead three weeks after hurricane america this comes after mark zuckerberg apologizes of tour of deconstruction. apple teams up with director steven spieled berg to bring

6:33 am
welcome back a good wednesday morning everybody. think you so much for joining us. your top stories 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. he's ready to tackle health care reform. >> it will cost the united states nothing to take care of the big percentage of people.
6:34 am
with congress i decided take it upon myself so we would be announcing that soon. it's largely worked out. it's very intricate in another. a closer look this morning and what the president plans to do without congress. they close another record high yesterday. they are showing up fractional decline as you see there. the major indices are mixed and you see the ft 100 and that cat crime. in asia overnight markets are mixed but check out the ek average in japan. the utah police officer fired after he was caught on video aggressively handcuffing a nurse. mark zuckerberg apologizing this morning.
6:35 am
the unique offer that hyundai is hoping will rev up consumers. nfl commissioner robert caddell finally takes a stand. all players should stand for the national anthem. he plowed into his own field. we see in stand for the national anthem. all of the stories coming. the fight for health form. they are signaling plans to take matters into their own hands. he tweeted this. congress cannot get it back together on healthcare. i will be using the power of the pen to give great health healthcare to many people fast.
6:36 am
i will also be signing something probably this week which is good to go a long way to take care of many of the people that have been so badly hurt on healthcare. they will be able to buy and cross state lines and they will get great competitive healthcare and it will cost the united states nothing. with congress the way it is i decided to take it upon myself. joining us right now as a former adviser to the presidential campaign. thank you so much for joining us. i think it is crucial that we do everything we can to improve this healthcare decision. because we haven't had a decent bill before congress the and the president well had to resort to executive actions.
6:37 am
but we have to do a lot better than this. we need a true bipartisan substantial health care reform bill. anything this big should be done with both parties they push through medicare. have a much bigger majority of democrats in congress that we currently had with republicans. the new something that big head to be bipartisan. he wanted both parties to have skin in the game and what you know no one has made any serious attempt to unwind medicare all the way since then. we have to have some of these more egregious problems with obamacare remedied with actions. this is what the president just said a moment ago. it would be really nice if the fake news media would talk
6:38 am
about this. they want massive tax increases and soft crime producing borders. the republicans want the biggest tax cut in history in the wall. he makes his case for this policy on twitter is that working. >> the twitter communication platform along with the fireside chat. powerful presidential communications and approaches in history. i think he grates --dash make its great he treats it. i like the fact that he loses -- uses that platform. in terms of tax reform of course that's how he's can have to sell it. when you have a tax reform plan that has been put before the congress will reduce the individual tax form of skin or can shift taxes away from business so business is our growth engine.
6:39 am
and they are problem solvers in this country. they are developing the technologies that will address many of our healthcare issues and will use artificial intelligence to improve productivity and make our lives better. if you do to do things to stimulate small business. i would make the changes and i like everything about the tax reform that is there but fortunately as president trump has said he expects congress to approve the proposal. we ought to add a trade tariffs on imported goods. if you take out north american oil it's about $2.1 trillion. a 10% tax would give us $210 billion a year to find a good healthcare program and offset the income tax cuts and that would be a terrific move towards a consumption -based tax that favors american workers which is what the
6:40 am
tariff is. i just want two-point out that president trump maybe you need to keep foxbusiness on a little more. we talk about what matters to individuals. we talk about every day exactly. that also goes back to the argument that the president is making here where we need tax cuts. do we need that if we are at record highs on the stock market. i think that is a lot into the democrats arguments. my question to you is on this healthcare can president go alone. i think he can. i looked at this and this are associated health plans. you can do this you can group together with other people and by plans and policies it gives the consumer choice i think he
6:41 am
could do this plan and forget about healthcare. what do you think about that if he just you just focuses on this one aspect? >> i think a tax reform and health care reform should be integrated that should be done together or looked at together. and the key is groups as you say. the problem is look at the employer market where 80% of their people get their healthcare through their employer those are groups they had people with pre-existing conditions. the groups are large enough. we have got to force the health insurance companies to create groups that encompass the uninsured and the current medicaid population. that can be done and it can be done across state lines. to affect that kind of significant health care reform. you do need legislation and i think that is something that needs to be bipartisan.
6:42 am
we tried to put healthcare together and it failed miserably. i would just say to the criticism of the president when president obama said we can't wait that was a political statement now have health insurance plans that are leaving that people either had one option or zero. we can't wait for the obama care to circle the drain. to do this right we've got to revisit this on the legislative level we really didn't try tax reform and health reform is an integrated package. we're trying to do health reform first. and if you have the two together as an integrated package. i think that is a much better approach in the mandatory
6:43 am
withholding on all mental and middle income in the above individuals. it would go into their own answer each essay. as a kind of fundamental reform that we need. and again the health insurance companies which are profitable i've said this on the show before. health insurance companies over the past five years the biggest health insurers have tripled in value growing faster than apple. it doesn't make any sense. and everybody is worried they're gonna leave the exchange. they're basically trying to tried to hold america hostage. as long as you've got no federal premium price control. there is almost no antitrust. thank you so much.
6:44 am
we will be right back. i am totally blind. and non-24 can make me show up too early... or too late. or make me feel like i'm not really "there." talk to your doctor, and call 844-234-2424.

owner's. it remains to be seen how they actually force these men to stand during the national anthem. the details are very light. there is a legal issue which i know the judge next hour or potentially talk about. the contract that the players have with the leak and what the seats. they are scheduled to meet next week in new york. this is a business problem for them. the ratings are down more than 7% from a year ago. it does hurt the nfl. the nfl does exercise a lot of their control over their players. they to be to compelled to go to press conferences. it he have to sit there and give answers so you just say no. this is not about principle it's about profit.
6:57 am

i have a problem with donald trump's tax plan. a big problem. eighty percent (80%) of the tax cuts go to the top one percent. the richest americans. and big corporations get a huge tax break. but a lot of families like ours will pay more. millions in the middle class will actually pay higher taxes. that's right. higher taxes! to pay for the tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations. no early morning tweet can make that right. the trump tax plan is just bad for america.

[music] the rapper took more
7:02 am
than one shot about our commander-in-chief. will tell you all about the new video. and what it will cost you for a month of unlimited luxury. all the stories coming up this morning. kevin kelly is here. amy holmes is here. great to see everybody. we've another tweet coming out. delta earnings is really the breaking news right now. that is unexpected on both the top and bottom line. phenomenal. and they really gave it some pre- guidance last week. he actually moved action moved all of the shares and they said they don't get them believe there can be impacted by the hurricanes that happen to this quarter. it reaffirmed a lot of the numbers. what they're saying is this is
7:03 am
my work and had to see what guidance they get going forward. everybody is focused on fuel costs rising. they've done a great job managing costs and actually increasing the operating margins so they're making 2.5% more per seat this year than last year. they had run such a tight and efficient ship. now the focus is going to be on fuel costs. there's 18 buys and one hold. sixty-two dollars across the board for the inlets. what's important to know is that we talk about technology so much. we saw technology have a tough month last month. where was the leadership. that actually shows a healthy and robust economy.
7:04 am
we have to point that out. and on the margins it does make a difference. i used to think united was the best. delta does do a good job. we are cap to talk about he said at harrisburg pennsylvania, and has increased by $5.2 trillion on election day. a 25% increase. lost employment 16 years. in this if congress gives us the massive tax cut. they vowed to overhaul the nation's tax code. i'm giving the largest tax cuts in the history of this country. we are also bringing back three trillion dollars from
7:05 am
offshore. that is money that has been there for years that wants to come back into the country. i want to bring in the former counsel. jason, good to see you this morning. what is the take on the tax plan that you've heard so far. we need tax reform or corporate rate is too high the international system is badly broken but my problem with what we've heard so far is that while it would help with those a large increase in our budget deficit and giving that benefits to high income households. the debt doubled under president obama. with a huge recession that the majority increase was there. there was a lot of legislation to lower the long-term debt.
7:06 am
on spending and taxes. the south issue. if you want to help our economy now what is the right way to go forward. adding 1.5 trillion dollars to the debt is clearly not the right way forward in this administration is arguing that the tax cuts pay for itself. is a fantasy. they said it best. it will pay for 20% of itself. the cost is now $1.2 trillion. it's not a whole lot better. why shouldn't we look at the historical record that when taxes have been cut gets government revenue that has gone up. we sat in the 1920s. the revenue went up significantly. should we just ignore that. there is a big difference between a tax cut.
7:07 am
president reagan did a big tax cut in 1981. the deficit came in higher than expected so it came back and raise taxes by a significant amount to correct that mistake in 1982. let's sit down with congress on a bipartisan basis let's set the ground rules. that's what he did in the 1986 reform. that is what this president should have done congress would have worked with him on it. but instead he is promising the biggest tax cut in history which is a total lie. it is alive because i think cutting the tax rate is a little bit big it's what president kennedy did. that is a little bit bigger.
7:08 am
i don't know any metric under which this is happening. it is too large of a tax cut. by the way, the business roundtable said we should have revenue tax reform. if to get back into the argument seen we were able to double the budget deficit. we over the last five years we have seen medicare and medicaid all of these costs go up 15%. they were supposed to be tackled by the affordable care act. we have an aging population so in order for us to tackle the deficit shouldn't we get a growing economy and focus on putting more back. they can pay for the
7:09 am
deductibles. first of all you have your tax -- facts wrong. it's really remarkable. we need more growth. goldman sachs took a look at that. it would go up between one and two tenths after that it was essentially zero. you enter growth with revenue neutral tax reform. that's where the administration started. every time they came along and said we don't like the offset they dropped it. since we had been mired in one and half to 2% growth and out
7:10 am
for about a decade what is your proposal. it lowers the rate but doesn't add to the deficit. i would expand immigration rather than pulling back. with the job creators and innovators. they were created by immigrants or the children -- children of immigrants. without them we went.
7:11 am
is that we did you did under the obama administration? what you are proposing did you make these changes during the obama administration. were just trying to understand why we have such a weak growth over the last ten years. these took about three or four or 5% growth. we have growth of 7.3 percent. gdp. we have not seen it. you are throwing out a whole bunch of things. that the senate passed conference of immigration. it was very strongly supported by the business community. unfortunately the house never passed it. with a real demographic problem going forward. people are retiring. and we need to make up for that with more productivity but we also need to make up
7:12 am
for that. our workforce would be falling. i want to push on something though. the syntax of our proposal on the individual aside if it is revenue neutral you have a pile on a democrats getting on board with that. i had pushed back. if you make it revenue neutral in distribution neutral which again is consistent with what the administration has said its goals are. i'm not seen anything for them other than what they have said absolutely. i would be working the phones. calling for proposing tax reform. and you get a lot of democrats interested. instead they're talking about a big tax cut. there is no economic growth that you will get from that.
7:13 am
that is just a manner of what you think the distribution of income should be. that's why people are opposed to it. you've artie pay tax on that money. no one is making an argument that there is a whole lot of economic growth associated with repealing the estate tax. i think they just think it's unfair to people like themselves. i don't think they will go with it. it will be something that the republicans will say because of the revenue. there is a state and local income tax debate going on right now. are you saying he have to cut back on spending the corporate rates have to come down but you want us to be revenue neutral how to get there.
7:14 am
raising taxes on a portion of the people. you're not giving us a path to get there. you want to broaden the tax base. you want to do things on international taxation. and you're making it free to repatriate their money. you don't want to create a new set of loopholes. this has for example a new 25% rate for certain types of businesses everyone is gonna be clamoring to be that type of business. it is opened up. even conservative tax analyst. they only want to keep three deductions and there. mortgage, charity in retirement. >> what loopholes are you referring to. we have to put up guard
7:15 am
rails. i could hire myself out. as a new corporation instead of paying the top rates. there will be rules in place to make sure that doesn't happen. jason, thank you very much.

8:06 am
for two noefvels to things to american people with an you can't just assume if you stop missiles you are stopping weapons opponent has many ways of delivery the other you can't just focus vertically on one place you can't say, here is our north korean policy because north korean policy relates to iran where they have been selling missiles relates to syria where they tried billed a nuclear reactor, and networks of opposition we are not day designed mentalitily or structurally to have a national security apparatus that thinks of the whole network as well as a threat i think vengeance in that sense an adventure book but underlying it serious public policy. >> these are serious times, i mean north korea you know, the terrorists or the policy trying to achieve in washington, we are at critical moment in time. >> i think the -- north korean nuclear program is greatest
8:07 am
danger since the 1962 cuban missile crisis, i think people really need to understand that we've had you know, president clinton, president bush, president obama all tried every case they talked north koreans developed missiles and bombs we are now at a really critical point, i don't see an easy out. i think there is some things that could be done, all of them involve risk, but i do think that the administration the trump administration has been very good at dramatically tightening up on the sanctions, and pushing the chinese into doing things year ago would never have dreamed of. >> by the way, getting china and russia onboard with sanctions huge deal from nikki haley. >> have tax reform the president delivering a message in harrisburg pennsylvania you have said you are calling for tax cuts you are calling for reform obviously knee deep in 19861980s you got it done, will they be able to get this done. >> well i am more worried than

8:11 am
is one of the great tests of the trump presidency, can he find the discipline to focus on getting the job done, and realize that leading the country is bigger than personality, and requires a kind of discipline never had in life this is a really hard business. >> and quick i want to ask you about growth, in the 80s, because i was astounded to remember, that in 19 i think 1982 was 1984, gdp was 7.3%. >> yeah i think look i think trump can deliver four or five even 6% growth you take trade deals, things like saudis buying 400 billion dollars in accounts deregulation trump has been the most effective fury pages of regulation. >> big deal. >> just billions of dollars of burden off the economy so you add a tax break look at

exist i am surprised that you know such a hyper technical definition determination that these things were legal -- this mimics a machine gun machine guns are you know unlawfully therefore anything that mimics it should also be ununlawful the process doesn't seem logical. >> even nra, by the way, said bump stocks needs more regulation even nra. >> several victims las vegas rampage filed against texas company that sell bump stocks saying shooting would thought have been as massive if the government had used a conventional gin they are suing this company that makes bump stocks, valid? >> we will see, i think they initially marketed this as an aid to disabled people, somehow this extra stock was going to be you know, help disabled people, whether or not that is a ruse i don't
