tv   Mornings With Maria Bartiromo  FOX Business  July 3, 2019 6:00am-9:00am EDT

6:00 am
nike, meantime playing defense, the company standing by decision to pay pull patriotic betsy ross flag sneaker, record quarter for tesla, stock surging up more than 8% in premarket trading, what's behind delivery boost, that's coming up. mornings with maria starts right now. ♪ ♪ dagen: early happy fourth, 55-point gain on the dow, futures, s&p and nasdaq 100 futures heading higher as well.
6:01 am
this after a day of trading that saw s&p 500 hit another all-time high, second straight day of record. meantime investors are cautiously awaiting upcoming earning season with 80% of s&p 500 companies reportedly cutting earnings forecast. joining me research chief macro strategist lenor hawkins, what is driving the market to plus side if you watch the bond market, 10-year yield falling and closing below 2% yesterday and then you this percentage of s&p 500 companies cutting their earnings forecast? >> this is really all about the fed in the hope that easy money will keep prices going up because this has nothing to do with fundamentals, if you look at what happened at first half of the year, s&p 500 rose 17%, the strongest first half of the year since 1997 but if we look
6:02 am
at earnings, if we look at what's going on with the fundamentals, earnings declined 4.4 for the s&p 500 for the first quarter and expect today decline negative 2.3% in second quarter, you have prices going up while the actual result is going up, this is really about the fed and the hope that the easy money is going to, again, raise all asset prices. dagen: certainly lower long-term interest rates, lower 10-year yield does make stocks more attractive because that's how you essentially value future earnings and the lower the interest rate the most valuable those earnings would be, nevertheless, is the market looking out into 2020, is that how far investors are looking out to justify what has been a record run in the s&p? >> i think what the market is doing right now is just that basic -- the fear of missing out and what you said, there's not a whole lot of other options when you've got so much of sovereign
6:03 am
debt, so much of global debt is actually yielding negative returns, so what do you do, what is an investor going to do? we have a lot of concern, a reason bank of america, merrill lynch fund managers, survey, record number of fund managers are not overweight, the same level we haven't seen since 2008, so the pros are nervous, the pros are thinking, oh, this is not good. dagen: how do you allocate capital, maria uses that phrase, how do you allocate capital in this environment where treasury -- we were looking at the 10-year yield is actually lower this morning, 1.96, when treasuries look very overvalued potentially and then stocks do too? >> well, u.s. treasuries may be overvalued but if you look at around at the rest of the world, when you've got negative
6:04 am
interest rates, the u.s. looks pretty good given that austria issued century bond, 100 bond at 1% return, if you look within the u.s. doesn't look so attractive but if you look outside of the u.s., we are still looking pretty good with bond market. dagen: given level of indebtedness in the country, near close to running 1 trillion-dollar annual budget deficits, do you think the u.s. needs to do that, do you think we need to issue a 50-year bond, i know it's come up in the past? >> massive issue. not only do we have a record level of debt at the federal level that we haven't seen this kind of outside of a war but if you look at corporate debt as a percentage, that's also hit record highs, going back to the fed, i think -- the thing the fed is most concerned with is deflation, why is it a good
6:05 am
thing to have value of my dollar declining year after year, we have mountain of debt, that much debt, if we actually get deflation that means that tomorrow's dollars are going to be paying that debt off and more and more expensive levels, you cannot deflation with this much debt. dagen: i want to talk about the federal reserve and job's report which comes out on friday, the expectation is that 160,000 jobs were created last month with unemployment rate holding steady at 3.6%, how does the fed react to this, a lot of what we heard from guests this week, a lot of what i have been reading is really the markets are counting on the fed cutting interest rates at this meeting later this month but what if it doesn't? >> exactly. the market is pricing in quite a few cuts this year. the fed is really finding itself between rock and hard place.
6:06 am
don't fight the fed and now seems like turning around, you can't fight the market because it's really turned into that the market has become this metric for success for both federal reserve and the presidency, like the tail wagging the dog, so the fed is under a lot of pressure but first, they are under pressure of what's going on with the trade wars, well, the trade wars have become game, who knows which group we will be fighting with next, the problems with china, that kind of slowing down, not so bad right now, that's not as big of a concern, maybe rumbling with europe again, but overall the trade wars are little less concerning today than they were last week and the job's number doesn't come in bad like it did last month. if it comes in pretty solid tough for the fed to really argue that it's important to cut. dagen: sticking of the federal reserve, president trump has named economist judy sheldon this as monetary fund chief,
6:07 am
former french finance minister kristin to become the first woman to replace mario droghi, again, keep the easy money flowing, but lenor, what do you make of fed nominees and the change, changing in the guard, guard coming to ecb? >> we have a race to the bottom, you've got mario droghi saying he will do what it takes and start with the stimulus, and, of course, trump got upset about that because when we are talking about stimulus it's really kind of a relative effect because at the ecb is following the easy money and a lot of stimulus, the euro and that makes the dollar stronger and he wants a weaker dollar to help with all the trade wars, the stronger the dollar is, the tougher our exports become and that i think what we will be seeing, more and more for who is going to get
6:08 am
down there facióner. dagen: lenor great to see you, leanor hawaii -- hawkins all starting at 8:00 a.m. eastern time. american icon has died, cheryl casone has details, hey, cheryl. cheryl: hey, dagen, good morning, ceo of iconic ford mustang who also helped launch the mivi vans, ford escort, had 32-year career that will go down in history books, also well known for familiar tag line on chrysler tv commercials. one more thing, if you can find a better car, buy it. >> will be remembered from
6:09 am

6:11 am
it was loan guaranties that lee i think in his own words fell to his knees and went to congress and the company was able to borrow in loans, basically the bank loan market shut him off and they were able to borrow all the money to finish and lee iacocco in a big ceremony paid back that load, $813 million, paying guarantied loan, 7 years ahead of schedule, so we all get guarantied loans from the government like anything touched by fannie and freddie is essentially a guarantied loan. cheryl: check interview with neil, he was 84, about 84 at the time he looked and sounded just great, it was fascinating to hear perspective of his life at this point. 84. dagen: neil loves lee, i've
6:12 am
worked here for a long time, about 19 years -- almost 20 years and used to have lee iacocco all the time. neil loved to talk to lee. unique thing about him, how many people really associate mary barra, you gave me government loans and use them for the benefit of the nation really. cheryl: he gave us the mustang. dagen: a few other people involved in the design of the car i will add but we remember lee iacocco, thank you, cheryl. nike defending, pulling new betsy ross sneakers amid a lot of controversy now spilling over into congress. and hey, alexa stop storing my data, the shocking report that amazon is keeping your voice data in transcripts, how the

6:33 am
joe biden, take a look at this, the latest quinnipiac university poll of democratic and democratic-leaning show that is bide within 22% support, harris a close second at 20%, that's a double-digit jump for kamala harris since quinnipiac's previous poll last month, elizabeth warren, bernie sanders, 13 and 14%, pete buttigieg is bringing up the rear big time, the leaders narrowing, 4%, joining us right now to discus republican strategist, and democratic strategist kelly grace gibson, kelly, good to see you this morning, what do you make of this and do you think this is a lasting shift in leadership among democrats running for the nomination? >> no, i think it's pretty early in the race to say the performance on the first crowded debate will have a lasting shift although i do think that she set the bar for anybody that will
6:34 am
come for vice president's numbers, now the harris campaign really needs to keep up their momentum and make strategic decisions as they made on the debate stage for getting the right voters and right audience going into early primaries, i think what she did, what she had to do in the debate she did it with everybody else after getting new voters but now they got, once you press gas you have to keep your foot on it. dagen: kamala harris, no one has gone after her record yet, joseph, as the attorney general in california, this is an individual who actually prosecuted parents for truancy although i don't think anybody went to jail, that's criminal prosecutions and that's just sliver of record, in part she's a women, i always said hillary clinton that she would use gender as crutch to lean on and when you weren't looking she would wack you with it. >> i think we will have many iterations of front runners as
6:35 am
we go through process. i think with the senator, when it comes to vice president, as he tries to hold onto lead and african-american support he must be prepared to lose it, he must be willing to challenge kamala harris on her legacy of race as prosecutor in california and if you look at it from that standpoint, unwilling to do that, realistically his support will crack and like titanic. dagen: is beto o'rourke over, kelly? >> i mean, it's hard to say but he needed to step up and show sort of a beto thing in that debate which he didn't do, i think the thing about kamala harris' track record is a lot to be proud of, she chose something that she could land on the vice president and attacks on primaries need to be thoughtful and considerate because that's what voters expect. the biden team better make
6:36 am
strategic decisions where to take her to task. dagen: he also be prepared at the next debate because it was awkward watching his defense, no one under the age 50 really remembers the history and didn't come naturally that, hey, this wasn't a universally accepted practice by the black community in the 70's but she knew that and then vice president biden, abruptly ended his answer, just to kind of get away, get away from the topic, that was awkward and he clearly wasn't prepared for these hits. >> i think -- sorry. dagen: go ahead, mike. >> yeah, so we are watching senator harris and talking about record as prosecutor, now one thing republican wills go after democratic party about is maybe being weak on crime, how does that reconcile as record as prosecutor, what can gop really do here? >> well, i think realistic if a gop has a challenge when it comes to senator harris, again,
6:37 am
she's going to, i think, enjoy now rising support with african-american voters, i think she's going to rise, have rising support with those ranking-file democratic voters who do believe still in law and order and talk about rust belt and places like that where they didn't necessarily know her moving forward but i do think there's some opportunities there going to record and talk about the fact, to your point, she's going after parents, to earlier point, she wants to talk about busing, busing has never worked. i think if you look at when you talk about there, ncaa presidents say busing does not work and some schools in america that have been more segregated than they were in jim crow, i think that she's been pandering to an ill-informed base, i think to my earlier point, not that i'm giving joe biden free advice, i would encourage, look, some of the stuff feeding you is comfort food for the masses. dagen: that's what i was saying, she used, she knew that people have -- that anybody who is
6:38 am
young don't remember what it was like in this country and like the general reaction where young people were spending hours and hours on buses every day and couldn't participate in sports and extra curricular activities. i want to move to iowa because you talked about the rust belt, a new university poll among iowa democratic caucus goers show bernie sanders slip to go fourth place, sanders well below 16% showing in early des moines register cnn poll, iowa first in nation contest for democrats and probably a must-win for sanders, maybe not like a good showing but, again, it's the ground game and former vice president biden. bernie sanders 18 million-dollar quarterly hall, still waking the money in, pete buttigieg,
6:39 am
however, mayor of south bend, indiana in that neck of the woods, he brought in incredible amount of money, 24.8 million over the last 3 months. >> yeah, i think a lot of the earning will be spent in early states, iowa being obviously the top of their minds, you know, i think that iowa voters are frequently polled, they are polled after every single political sort of contest and debate and doesn't surprise me that right now its representational of how candidates performed in debate stage, senator sanders didn't make a fuss and did not insert himself, perhaps strategic decision but generally speaking he's much better when he's out on the streets and talking to sort of large groups, progressive voters and my guess is we will see him pretty strong on the ground in iowa but he does not have the same benefit that he did in '16 campaign, he doesn't have a single person to be running against, he needs to
6:40 am
find his way and clearly have the money to do so we will have to see how he spends it. dagen: republicans learn one thing, everything that you think is going to be wrong, everything that you are going to say is wrong about who wins this contest for the nomination and i think -- because driving down in the south listening to news networks, people discussing all these polls over and over again, i'm like y'all don't know anything. >> it's really crazy. i think a lot of people are realizing right now that people forgot that, you know, senator warren is the original trillion dollar give away, when you start talking about the fact that she didn't run the last cycle, voters are reintroducing themselves to this person that actually was the person that wanted to run previously, that's why we see declining and realistically again, in iowa specifically if biden cannot come out with convincing victory there unlike hillary that enjoyed the carolina backstop,
6:41 am
if he can't demonstrate he's the person to take on trump come november, again, those voters particularly african-american voters will start looking for new homes. >> he's not in favor of take get away the health insurance for 180 million people because that goes to his union base. >> exactly. >> so elizabeth warren good luck, we are raising your hand with all unions across the country, you're telling people, those cadillac plans that you have, buy, -- bye, i get to run your health care company. joseph, thank you so much. kelly gibson. cheryl casone has details, hey, cheryl. cheryl: that's right, dagen, reports are that chip maker broadcomm is in advance talks to acquire security firm. no where yet on potential terms of a deal but would expand if it happens, failed to buy qualcomm,

wages or not possible because eats up all your profits? >> i mean, eats profit, even if you raise the wage you're finding high school kids that have no experience and the more business that we do requires experience labor and these kids are just, you know, they don't want to work. it's tough. >> butch, that lends itself to my question here, i'm curious to hear your reaction to just a changing perspective around the dignity of work, there is the idea that people today especially young people don't value hard work like going in the back and washing dishes, they just don't want to do the jobs, so would raising wages even make them come to want to work for the summer at your restaurant? >> it doesn't even matter, you can pay them $25 an hour, doesn't matter. they feel entitled, they want to go and stay home watching tv, on their phone, ordering amazon, they don't want to come wash
6:56 am
dishes, these are kids, their parents enable them, so parents don't call me up, that's like taboo subject, we can't do that. they're okay, they want to walk around and get paid but they don't want to do the work for it, it's amazing how bad it is out there. it's killing us. dagen: i did everything -- like, you know, i have done everything, like even after i had a college degree i was a gardener. i sold booze on a golf course. what changes this, though? >> i think people are afraid of their children, i mean, they want their children to be happy and no matter what they'll be happy and nice, kids that are living at home with parents 30, 40 years' old, that's crazy. i was 21 when i moved out of the house, i delivered newspapers, washing cars, whatever i can make a buck, you we wanted to exceed what the parents made, these kids want to go backward

south korea, off by nearly one and a quarter percent. healthcare in america, attempts to block next week's obamacare hearing fail. the hearing is a go. this as some drugs soar in price despite the president's promise that, well, he would keep drug costs in check, bring them down. look at what is at stake.
7:02 am
7:03 am
>> if you have a a portfolio where -- >> if you're investing in stocks and bonds you're happy right now. there's major strategies that are based on that. the thing is, where do we go from here. personally, i look at stocks and i say for the first time this year i've been relatively bullish all year. i look at tech stocks and i say maybe it's time for a time-out here.
7:04 am
valuations are getting ahead of themselves. they're not ridiculous. maybe there is steam that needs to come off. the bond market, the data -- the bond market seems to be in a dysfunction. is it telling us to sell bonds here? i don't see it. i think that's something you can hold onto. yields can drift down a bit. the curb needs to uninvert. dagen: reduce your stock allocation but hold your treasurya allocation. >> or make it more defensive. instead of buying tech, maybe switch into real estate. i'm not going to say bayou tilts and cons -- buy utilities and consumer staples. somebody needs to explain the fundamental case, other than it's rate sensitive. >> hewlett-packard, dell, amazon, considering moving manufacturing out of china, sony, nintendo, this will have long-term consequences. dagen: the president, whatever his strategy is, like it or not, it's working. it is sending a signal to these nations that you should not -- these companies that you cannot
7:05 am
depend on china. and that you basically sold your soul in essence by moving production there and they're trying to diversify their manufacturing base. i would suggest -- >> looking at southeast asia san countries, among others. dagen: coming up this morning, sonny perdue, jeff van drew, and from the heritage foundation, marie fishfall. you don't want to miss any of those folks. our top story this half hour, crisis at the border, the situation at detainment facilities called out by one official as a ticking time bomb, in a new department of homeland security watchdog report. the office of inspector general warning about dangerous over-crowding in border patrol facilities in the rio grande valley of south texas. this on the heels of a federal judge in seattle blocking the trump administration from detaining asylum seekers while they pursue their cases.
7:06 am
joining me now ise is former acg r director of u.s. customs immigration and enforcement, tom homan. what do you make of this report? and what can and will the trump administration do to alleviate this, what is very disturbing overcrowding in these facilities? >> these facilities weren't built for these family groups. the administration made it clear for months. these are jails. they're built for mostly single adults, that's usually about 90% of what border patrol apprehends. when the family groups come across, it's either detain them along with making sure you know who they are before they're released or release them from the border which is unacceptable. the administration asked congress for months please give money to the department and hhs so family type beds can be found, children beds can be found, which are built for that purpose. they have facilities for the children, medical care for the children. they passed something out of the
7:07 am
courts. but it will help, but it's late. so all these pictures are nothing the border pa l troll pn prevent. the men and women are doing the best they can without assistance from congress for months. dagen: i want to go through the numbers. the numbers are staggering and the report is disturbing and anybody who reads it would be upset about it. but the question is, what's going to be done about it more than 332,000 migrants traveling as families have been arrested at the border since the start of the last fiscal year in october. that is more than any other full year. a 56,000 unaccompany children have crossed the border illegally since october. if you compare that to the deportation numbers, 332,000 migrant families, president obama, his peak in deportations was only a little more than 400,000. and this is october, just october not even a full fiscal
7:08 am
year. the numbers in terms of the number of families coming in, in the current year, will top the number of deportations, even a record during the obama administration. so how would this money -- is this money enough, this $4.6 billion, tom, that was approved last week by the house and the senate and by president trump, is more money going to be needed at the border? >> absolutely. this money will douse the flames for now. but if you notice, that bill did not really address the enforcement component of all this. without interior enforcement, you got no border security. the numbers are staggering. back during the obama administration when the family numbers were less than half of this, we built 3,000 family detention beds. we built the facilities for the unaccompanied children that came across, the that was done in fy14 and 15 when numbers were half this. the leadership for the democratic party does not recognize this as a crisis as the level it actually is. the money will help.
7:09 am
but there's more money needed. there needs to be interior enforcement. i said for months on this network, those families and adults that came across, they had due process at great taxpayer expense, billions of dollars spent on the system, when the federal judge orders them to leave, they must leave. in fy15 i did this. the border numbers plummeted after we did it because we showed there's a consequence to committing immigration fraud. dagen: the president promised interior raids to basically get people out of the country who have been through due process. do you think that happens, because it's -- >> abs a lieutenantly. dagen-- lieutenantly.>> -- abso. dagen: the leadership in a lot of the cities is pushing back, like chicago, for example. >> it's a sanctuary city. either there's a rule of law or there isn't. if a federal judge comes out with an order says you must leave, if the order is not carried out, if the order
7:10 am
doesn't mean anything, there's no integrity for the system. just open the border up, let everybody in because there's no consequence. i've done this for 34 years. it's unfortunate and it's sad. it is. but it's a either that or open borders. we can't have both. i think the president has the right ajen dam i think that nationwide -- agenda, i think that nationwide that needs to happen. the other option is, no border. dagen: i said this yesterday, with alexandria ocasio-cortez and she makes this trip to the border and part of her accusations were people being told -- women being told to drink out of the toilet. alexandria ocasio-cortez did not vote for this aid. she voted no on this humanitarian aid. speaker pelosi was not pushed and not dominated by the far left past of her democratic caucus. >> ocasio-cortez lost all credibility. nobody is making anybody drink out of toilets.
7:11 am
if you look at the commode in the he detngthe detention centea commode on the bottom, on the top there's a sink. dagen: i know what the numbers speak. she didn't vote for the $4.6 billion in aid and she -- for whatever reason, she said she talked to her consistent at this timconstituentsand they tot want her to vote for it. >> last week, the employees at wayfair were infuriated they were purchasing beds for facilities. there's a very -- i can't understand the logic when you don't vote for the funding, when you think we shouldn't purchase beds. we are dealing with a crisis and if we are attempting to address it in a hah humanitarian way, we can't have leaders in the party dictating a narrative that doesn't make sense to solve the problem. dagen: the leader of the democratic party pushed for the aid. >> social media leaders. >> i give nancy pelosi no
7:12 am
credit. she never came to the table during the crisis. 31% of women are raped making the trip. children are dying. they're going to continue to die as long as they keep loopholes open. nancy pelosi came to the table when she heard president trump is going to remove people that had final orders. that's when she came to the table, to protect illegal immigrants who had due process in the country. that'that's what brought her toe table. not the deaths, not the rapes, none of that brought her to the table. dagen: senator lindsey graham had a bill, from before president obama was inaugurated in january '09 that basically opened the door for children to-basically encouraged unaccompanied minors to be sent here because it makes it more difficult to deport them and to send them back to their home countries if they're noncontiguous with the u.s. among the things senator graham wants to fix that.
7:13 am
is there any chance between now and the election next year that something on immigration is i'm- immigration is fixed and the holes closed. >> i hope so. i think the bill works. they've used this as a loophole to come across the country. one thing people aren't talking about, when did the families start coming? fy13. what happened in fy12? d12?daca. dagen: part of the problem is, the economy in this country is so strong, it's giving them incentive to come here. >> the president of el salvador said he failed, he took aren't foresponsibility for that whichi thought was standout. >> two things on the economy, it would be nice for the democrats

my next guest's company provides luxury amenities for residential living, amenities, services in apartment complexes and now he's doing more to help america's heroes. joining us now, valley living president and ceo, shawn handderhan. tell us about what you're doing for veterans. >> the genesis was you about four years ago. i had a meeting with former congressman jeff miller, to hire more veterans. we started doing that, went from 11 to a little over 300. started sponsoring warrior games and other events. we wanted to give more in return back. we started a process where communities and family members and friends could nominate veterans that lived in apartments. we would choose one and provide a suite of amenities to that
7:24 am
veteran for a year. >> my husband served in the marine corps. i have to say, the veterans commune you at this and the people that -- community and the people that we know, there are two things you can't help but notice. it's a difficult transition back to civilian life and it's difficult for veterans to ask for help. have to believe there's a tremendously positive response, especially for injured veterans, those who may have lost limbs, those who have difficulties doing their day-to-day tasks and the help you give must be tremendously appreciated. >> there was a gentleman, i won't give his last name, his name is andy who is a disabled vet and we selected him and he said it's transformed his live he's wheelchair-bound. we were very pleased to be able to offer that. part of our service, waste and recycling service is a nighttime

deal. as people are assimilating into society, working outside, unsupervised at night tends to be a great steppingstone to bring them back into the workforce. >> it's a great growing business. the secular trend is towards more rentals and multifamily. i'm looking through what valley living does. there might be a corporate application as well. is that a market you've considered entering, it would be a wonderful way to expand veteran eve employment even mor. >> we looked at it. we have so much going on. we acquired a company called torch fitnes fitness. we've got 6500, plus, associates. we have a lot of opportunity. i think that's something that we could consider down the future. right now, we've got our head down. >> you mentioned the two private equity firms, was it a tough sell to them or did they see the value right away? >> they saw the value, actually.
7:26 am
blackstone committed to hire 8,000 people over the next five years through all their portfolio companies. new mountain capital did the same thing. fortunately for us, we were acquired by aries and harvest and they allowed us to continue to facilitate that program. so we're not near as large as some companies. to get to 300, we committed to 300 by 2020 and we exceeded that by the beginning of the year. dagen: a 5% of your workforce is made up of veterans, roughly. where do you see that number five years from now. >> as we continue to work with the local bases, we're based out of tampa, to macdill is there. we're working with the bases of the veterans departments to be able to post those jobs internally. we would like to t get it to 8 to 10%. dagen: that's a awesome. it's different growing up in the rural south, where you spend a lot of time in and around bases like eastern, north carolina for example, fort bragg, camp
7:27 am
lejeune, cherry point, you have a different sense of the sacrifice, a different sense of the needs of people who are coming out of the military, who are leaving service and entering private life again. i encourage people to really get to -- to get to know those communities, people who are in service and who have served. >> it is a different mindset and you feel exactly the pain that they're going through. but we're a servant leadership type company and what better pool of candidates to pull from than veterans that have come back. they exhibit that relentless effort and leadership we try embody. dagen: a shoutout to tom bryant, my buddy from nascar -- well, he served admirably. i'll leave it at that. shawn, good to see you. shawn handerhan. >> happy 4th of july. dagen: how are you celebrating? >> i'll be out on the bay, watching fireworks in pensacola,

7:33 am
healthcare in america, a federal appeals court rejecting a request for a delay in next week's hearing on the constitutionality of president obama's healthcare law. joining me now, director of domestic policy studies at the heritage foundation, marie fishbau. what do you make of this decision and what is going to come out of this hearing? >> no matter what happens with next week's hearing, obamacare is not going to change any time in the near future. so if you are getting your benefits from obamacare right now, nothing is going to change for the foreseeable future. this court case has a while to go, it's going to wind its way through the legal system and may well end up at the supreme court. the most useful thing about next week's developments is that it's a good reminder for all of us that congress is going to eventually going to have to come back to health reform and deal with it, because only they can really tackle some of the real reasons that costs have gone up so much, choices have gone down for consumers under obamacare. dagen: what's going to happen, do you think, because this is a
7:34 am
debate that's playing out in the race for the democrat nomination for president, where you have some individuals, paltry few willing to raise their hand on a debate stage and say i want to take private insurance away from 180 million people but a lot of talk about a public option in the affordable care act. how do you see the fix playing out in the next year, next two years, for obamacare? >> well, the left has made it really clear that they have their preferred solution to obamacare. they would like to move on as well. and replace it with a government-run program for all of us that outlaws private health insurance. those somewhat to the right of that would like to do similar things that would end up in my view to getting us to the same place, just more slowly. the public option is -- these are all options that double down on the same recipe as we've seen that have led to higher costs, fewer choices for consumers.
7:35 am
so the conservatives need to come up with an alternative that speaks well to those real concerns by americans and conservatives have been working to do just that over the last few years. we came up with a proposal that would lower costs by 30% while increasing private coverage. >> mike block here. a lot of what we hear from the republican party is really based upon this rel peel and replace. we-repeal and replace. we never hear the replace part of that. the solutions you're speaking of, what does that entail? is it rel pee repeal and replacr making adjustments to aca. can that work under what we're seeing here? >> i think it can work. one of the reasons costs have gone up so much in recent years is that obama gives insurance companies more taxpayer dollars every time they raise prices which is a recipe for the kind of cost increases and choice decreases we've seen. one of the things that needs to be done is to address a that. the trump administration is taking all the steps within their power that they can to
7:36 am
provide relief now. that's leading to real cost reductions in some states that have gotten waivers from some of the more rigorous obamacare mandates. we've seen costs go down in those states, coverage go up, through tools that help protect pre-existing conditions. we need congress to do more to enable some of the relief that's been put in place in smaller ways by the trump administration. dagen: what are some of the other things the trump administration has done to basically open the insurance market to more individuals? >> they've done a lot to increase choices. doing things that will lead to lower costs, both for individuals and hopefully down the road for more people, even if they aren't in those plans. one of the biggest steps they took recently was a new regulation that came out in the last couple weeks that allows employers to offer effectively defined contribution to health plans rather than defined benefits. so people can buy the plan that makes sense for them rather than having their employer do it for them. this is going to help small businesses who may not be able
7:37 am
to afford to offer the obamacare plans at such expensive premiums on the market today. >> if there were one change -- i heard you said congress needs to be more involved, but if there were one change that you could magically wave a wand and have in place in the next 30 days what would it be. >> it would be to shift the notion that there is one change that could solve the problem. dagen: she just -- >> i want the information. dagen: i'm kidding. again, that's how these democrats are selling their idea of -- they call it medicare for all but it's not medicare for anybody. it gets rid of medicare, gets rid of private insurance in this country. but that is the messaging, is oh, dealing with the health insurance market is so difficult. let me, elizabeth warren, take that on for you. i'll make decisions about your
7:38 am
coverage, what health services you'll get, what health services you'll want. that's the messaging. >> right. that's good messaging, because in the sense that americans are frustrated and we're right to be frustrated with many aspects of our healthcare system. costs are too high. we don't perceive we're getting value. there's so much paperwork and red tape we have to deal with it. it's frustrating to patients and frustrating to doctors. the answer to that is not more of the same reasons that created our frustrations in the first place which is misappropriate government regulation and financing of the system. we need to peel away the layers of the onion f you will, that have led to the mess we're in and end up with a place that empowers patients and doctors to work directly together on the provision of their healthcare. >> won't insurance companies have a problem with that? >> well, insurance companies do benefit from the current financing model that we have. but i think that at the end of the day, putting people in charge of their healthcare
7:39 am
decisions will end up in a similar -- end up in a more robust market where costs can come down and people can buy the right plans that work for them. dagen: i wanted to ask you a quick question if we can go back to that, i'm doing my tv anchor best in the tell prompter. prescription drug prices are up 10.5% in the last six months according to rx savings solutions, despite pressure from the trump administration and congress to lower prices. what's going on here, maria? >> well, i mean, first thing is congress and the administration is right to be looking at rising prescription drug costs, like all rising healthcare costs. it's a major point of frustration for consumers in part because we don't really know what's going on or why things are -- the prices are moving around the way they are. but it's really important that policy makers who are taking a really hard look at this continue to try to figure out the root causes for why we ended up in this situation. a lot of it has to do with
7:40 am
misregulation after misregulation from the government, applied onto a situation where the real signals of the market can get distorted. so the more that the policy makers can take a hard look at what's happening there, the more i think they can figure out how to get the incentives right to reverse the situation. dagen: maria, thanks for being here. great to see you. have a happy fourth. >> you too. dagen: come back soon. coming up, waymo getting the go ahead, the self-driving company given a permit to shuttle passengers. the rules it needs to follow, however. plus, thinking of the beach, the top travel deals as americans get ready to celebrate the fourth. live from lido beach, new york. ♪ living in america. ♪ eye to eye. ♪ station to station. ♪ living in america. ♪ al customized my car insurance so i only pay for what i need. oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no...

7:51 am
mark elwood with a look at trip ideas, last minute. hey, lauren. lauren: if you need vitamin c, if you get my drift, we have options for you here from the beautiful beach club of malibu in lido beach. here is mark elwood. the contributing travel editor to conde nast traveler, i'm impressed. he's been to over 100 countries. so i was saying it's july 3rd, i've got no plans. 50 million people are basically traveling this weekend. i feel like i need to stay home to avoid the mess. you say there's no places to go. >> i don't think you should give up. people are traveling for a reason. remember, i've been to a lot of places overseas. there's plenty of places in our backyard. i think if it's july 4th you want to celebrate america, you want to go to all-american places, can i recommend somewhere that i would go? >?lauren: please do. >> i would go to st. louis.
7:52 am
i think the arch, the silver, crazy thing, was just renovated, almost $400 million they spent to sort of celebrate america's history, there's a new museum, a great park, a very good july 4th celebration so you're getting recent american history. i would also send to philly. that's really from the beginning. as a british person, i shouldn't recommend this, should i. signing the declaration of independence there, philly doubles down on july 4th. betsy ross will have you singing happy birthday. lauren: there's trends people are following right now. whether glamping or camp nonni when you send kids to the grandparents. >> we call it glamping. let's talk about graha about gl.
7:53 am
why don't you take your kids to an american safari. lauren: is bug spray included? >> i think you have to bring your own bug spray. all of these camping sites, they want to get you to enjoy the outdoors without roughing it. so there will be barbecue pits, places to make smores. lounge areas, they're very affordable. there's a site in utah, a site on governor's island off of manhattan. not far from us, there's a site so we can go there also. lauren: that trend is called skip-jening. >> if you want to talk about skip-jening, it's skip generation travel. it's where grandparents take grandchildren away without the parents. the parents go we want a weekend away. i can see where you're going with this. the grandparents say i would like quality time with grandkids. lauren: it's great exercise for
7:54 am
the grandparents. >> absolutely. lauren: millennials are doing the weekending thing. >> a lot of companies are changing vacation policies, often giving things like unlimited vacation, netflix does that. suddenly people have more vacation than they know what to do with. they're hesitant to book extra weeks off. one recent survey showed among millennials, 80% of them would rather do a whole load of long weekends instead of one big trip a year. so we're seeing he hotels hotelg outside of big cities so you can drive into them. lauren: you're full of ideas. i wanted to get your thoughts on one more. it wouldn't call it a trend, it's actually a staple of how we travel. cruises, how have they changed? would you recommend them? which ones? >> so many questions. i've got them all covered. we're obsessed with cruises right now. there's a new cruise issue on the newsstand. lauren: convince me. >> i would say people don't realize that cruises are a great last minute travel choice. you can book up to 96 hours
7:55 am
before you go, always book with a travel specialist, we called them travel agents in the past. they'll give you the best price, a lot of ship bonuses. you can save up to 80% if you book at the last minute. lauren: why is that? because cruise lines are thinking we can't sail a half empty ship, we might as well book it. >> i don't even need to be here. that's why. lauren: you can get up to 80% off? >> you'll get at least half hour. you have to be flexible. you can't say i want the hent house ship no matter -- penthouse suite no matter what. always check what the price will be. lauren: here in new york, you can go straight to the harbor. >> you just jump on-board. that's perfect. lauren: any ideas, what you might want to do. dagen: i love all of mark's ideas and tell him i said that because i always tell people
7:56 am
before you go overseas, see america. see the west. go to st. louis. i was cheering when he said that. that's the finish american architect designed the arch. if you don't want to go to st. louis, you can go to jfk because he designed the old twa terminal out there which has reopened. so i love all of those ideas. and rhonda haynes, who works here, she's a camera operator, a film maker, she went on her first cruise to alaska. so that's another way to see america. yeah, rhonda. so i'm not a cruise person, though, but i'll drive. lauren: i have to figure my weekend out. but i got information from mark. dagen: send the kids to grandparents. lauren simonetti. we'll see you next hour. thank mark. jobs in america, we get the adp report on private sector job creation, that's in about 15 minutes' time. we'll bring you those numbers as soon as they hit.
