6:03 am
transitory, which i guess people aren't liking that word anymore so we will quit using it , but that inflation will moderate significantly as we go forward. we have to watch the data and see if that happens. we have quite a bit of inflation here as your guests i'm sure have been talking about. you are talking about over 4% by the time we get to the end of the share. cheryl: federal reserve governor announcing he will resign at the end of the share, giving president biden up to four seats to fill in the central bank, seven-member board. as maria has been reporting jay powell's future as fed chair is more uncertain as several sources have been telling her they don't expect him to be renominated. the u.s. finally lifting international travel rules after 18 months of shutdown.

6:05 am
producer index prices coming out this morning. the consumer price index out tomorrow morning. joining me now sandy valerio enjoying the conversation all morning long, fox news contributor joe concha. joe shulman will also be joining us. sandy, what are you watching in terms of the producer prices this morning and consumer prices tomorrow because doesn't seemed like inflation concerns are getting in the way with stocks can be a great hedge against inflation. >> it's incredible. we are very stock specific, so we have a couple holdings we like that can kind of hedge against inflation. one we like a lot is in a perfect spot and when you look at hedge against inflation a little bit of play on the infrastructure bill and the plan electric vehicle so we like it, but watching inflation and none of this seems
6:06 am
to be transitory. we will see what we get today as well as tomorrow. dagen: what would you avoid here in terms of if you think inflation much higher inflation and i will point to the pce, which is the fed's preferred inflation gauge, it's running at the highest level in 30 years, so if you like free. reporter: moran, what you like, what you hate given the backdrop >> we are definitely trying to stick with ones that will do well in this environment. pretty good and sort of decoupling, keeping rates lower longer as well as tapering right here, so i guess it keeps us a little bit on the sidelines with a handful of things. certainly come i think we want to be in material names and that sort of thing. i went to avoid technology. if you think eventually the fed has to raise rates then certainly tech stocks will be a
6:07 am
tough spot to be especially the fact that they are so in my opinion, quite overpriced at this point also so don't be around when the music stops on that sector. dagen: done a lot of the technology companies have pricing power in a way that other companies wouldn't if you think that broad-based inflation is kind of the new norm? >> when i'm listening to my earnings report right now, the thing we see is the constant other than the supply chain disruption, there certainly wage inflation and we have this number and you say we just up 4.9% year-over-year, so that's going to keep rippling through with something like nine and a half million unemployed with 9.2 million job openings and so we are just for whatever reason people are coming back into the market here, so i think we are at a 50 year low on the labor participation rate, so
6:08 am
that's something we see company after company. we want to keep an eye on that and see how it repulsed through, but people come back to work at some point and things can normalize a little bit. dagen: we are looking at the future of the federal reserve, the federal reserve governor announcing he will resign from his position at the end of the year as we wait to see whether president biden re- nominates jay powell as chairman and his term is up in february. at there have been-- maria has reported-- i myself have predicted that powell will not be reappointed, did that weeks ago. fed governor will bring her is seen as the top replacement and reportedly interviewed at the white house last week. here is what st. louis federal reserve bank president james bullard told marie about the future leadership at the fed to listen and then i will get a response. >> i don't know what the white house is going to do. i would caution everyone on this that u.s. senate
6:09 am
, as you know, is perfectly evenly divided, so it has to be something that the senate is going to go for and so i think that makes it difficult proposition for the white house. i will say this, that fmo mc is a large committee with a lot of experienced players on the committee and we have excellent staff across the federal reserve system so i would expect a lot of continuity in the policy no matter how the appointment process works out in the months ahead. dagen: sandy, your reaction to all of that come in the moving and shaking potentially? >> i think they did a great job of calming markets that may have done a nice job of just trying to make things unpredictable a little bit more predictable as a sort of smooth markets and key people at ease. hopefully, it stays with what they've done already which is to start the tapering, less
6:10 am
than a hundred 20 billion they had been died and then slowly look to raise rates at some point but they are talking about rates lower through the end of 2022, 23 and holy is stays the same policy despite who is in charge so i like the fact they are trying to dictate and keep us-- keep the markets home in an unpredictable world, so i like what they're doing their. dagen: sandy, thank you for being here. >> thanks for having me. dagen: we are just getting started in coming up mixed messages from the biden white house as it's forced to backtrack again over plans to shut down another american pipeline. we get into it next. next hour at michigan congresswoman is here what's next for washington's runaway spending, the future of the house in 2022 as well and at 8:00 o'clock eastern, former treasury secretary steve mnuchin joins maria to talk about his recent security investment and

>> why is the administration considering shutting down the line five pipeline from canada to michigan? >> cell, peter, that is inaccurate. that is not right. the reporting about us wanting to shut down line five-- >> is a being studied right now, is the administration is studying the impact of shutting down line five? >> yes, we are.
6:15 am
dagen: the white house backtracking again after fox news peter doocy asked if it's considering shut down the line five pipeline that runs from canada through michigan and made a global energy crisis, this as 11 democratic senators write a letter to president biden urging him to release oil from the strategic petroleum reserve and banned exports of u.s. crude oil. of the senators noting gas has risen more than a dollar a gallon since the time last year with the national average is sitting at nearly $3.50 a gallon. joe, your reaction to once again an inability to be frank with the american people and tell folks the truth out of the white house? >> dagan, that was like a circle back in real time like in the same press conference within the same exchange between peter doocy who seems to be the only person asking tough questions in those briefings and the deputy press secretary, obviously jen psaki still in quarantine from
6:16 am
covid, but this administration continues to defy basic logic and a sanity and forget republican and democrat for a moment. at this is common sense stuff we are talking about, where you have gas prices at the highs they are right now, seven, eight year highs with attacks on anyone who drives, which is basically everyone. what we have here is a president about five minutes after taking office and shuts down keystone pipeline, now it's considering this move as well and that was a key graphic you just to show their care to democratic senators are saying you have to stop this. at this is insanity and this is why you see a poll yesterday where 64% of americans don't even want joe biden running for a second term because they say the disaster that this has been in terms of inflation, in terms of supply chain, in terms of gas prices and in terms of basic competency in doing the right things at the right time. instead, they keep trying to appease the progressive way in their party and that does not
6:17 am
sit with the american people very well. dagen: it's a combination of policy, it's crushed the likelihood of hard-working americans. we are a nation of plentiful fossil fuels. they are cheap and they fueled part of the economy, but they also raise their standard of living. its policy, but it's also an inability to stand up for the poor decisions this white house is making, so when they get caught they lie they can't stand on the ground-- they are on quicksand in terms of the policy decision. >> and it's been nearly 10 weeks since the president has done a one-on-one interview with any major broadcast national entity and i think george stephanopoulos was the last one, we are talking like back in the summer and the reason why is may be a decent journalist would in only asking questions about why are you doing this, they would follow up on that and get specifics
6:18 am
and get real answers that the white house is petrified to put him out there in those situations because they know he can handle it. dagen: he can handle it and in terms-- it's the biden and the briefing nonsense, but it's also -- jennifer grant hold, how is she the energy secretary? she literally laughed when asked by tom kane at bloomberg how they would bring down energy prices. what she said-- we-- the united states was the swing producer and we controlled the price of oil. we were a net exporter of oil and oil products when president trump was in office and she says oh, it's up to opec. we broke opec, we broke the cartel and then she said we need to rely on less fuel. you can't even store alternative sources of energy like wind because we don't have the battery technology.
6:19 am
it boggles my mind. i'm doing right now what i do when i'm sitting at home alone in front of my tv listening to clips of her. >> yeah, it's the condescending administration. jennifer laughed, i mean, for a while after that question from bloomberg and good for tom, his face stayed stonefaced liking you give me an answer and she couldn't give an answer or kamala harris, you going to the border, and she cackles. they laughed nervously when asked basic questions, but they can provide answers. remarkable. dagen: i'm not going to do my laugh because it's highly annoying. i will stifle. our stage manager is sitting over here shaking his head going don't do the laugh, don't do the laugh. we will see you in a minute. coming up, the white house refusing to answer question about the $450,000 payment to migrants. congressman greg murphy is here to weigh in on

dagen: the white house refusing to answer questions about pain migrants separated at the border with taxpayer money. watch this. >> who counts as separated cracks if someone was separated for a few hours or a few days would they be eligible to settle a suit and get this payment from d.o.j.? >> i will direct you to the department of justice for any specifics you have asked the question, we have answered and i will refer you to the department of justice on any specifics. dagen: the administration is said to consider paying illegal migrants $450,000 per person to nearly $1 million per couple with the payments exceeding those gifts to some families of
6:24 am
the 9/11 tragedy and also exceed the payment to goldstar families joining me now, north carolina congressman greg murphy who is also the member the veteran's affairs and education and labor committee and the gop doctor's caucus cochair. congressman, great to see you. what you make of this inability or decision to not answer any serious questions about these payments that would be paid to some illegal immigrants. you break the law and you get a half a million dollars. >> dagan, this is what this administration does if they were writing the book, the top them things to do to destroy the country, they are well on their way. sadly enough, i think the narrative fits well with the narrative of the progressive left where everyone is a victim. everyone is a victim. they want to-- now i'm sure with the assistance of our trial lawyers the department of justice
6:25 am
wants to make these people who have broken the law, they have committed a crime, a victim. we see this in san francisco now. costco, walgreens, please come in and steal our stuff, but that's okay. everyone is a victim. the fact we-- once you pay individuals the massive sum of almost half a million dollars who knowingly broke the law simply is unconscionable. we talk about the other things this administration is doing. this stuff is you know this is stuff you just can't make up, you cannot believe this is reality. dagen: joe concha, jump in here. >> congressman, i'm curious, in north carolina if you are seeing what we saw in new york a couple of weeks ago that governor desantis talked about yesterday as far as secret flights into a state filled with illegal migrants, flown in in the middle of the night, florida, new york, those are the flights we know about and i'm curious if you see that activity in the tar heel state. >> i think we are.
6:26 am
i have heard some things down from new bern in my district, the problem is our governor and our attorney general about sympathetic to the biden cause, so they are trying to keep things as quiet as possible. again, these are crimes. these are crimes against the american people as they try to-- you know we can sing with some in the press conferences they continue to deceive. they continue to lie and yes, i believe there are people being brought in. i cannot give specifics because it's been kept under the rob-- read by our governor and attorney general. dagen: i will point out the "new york post" was-- uncovered the illegal migrants that were being flown into just north of new york city and they were not children, congressman. they were young adult men. the fact that they are doing it in the cover-up darkness in the middle of the night just kind of speaks to the fact that they don't want the
6:27 am
press-- they don't want the american people to know where these illegal immigrants are being sent. that and then in terms of the payment to individuals and families , the reason that children are separated from adults who were bringing them into the united states is because the government could improve that they were actually family members and so you want to prevent abuse of a child, the trafficking of a child by someone who is not a relative or a family member, so again, the separation was a two prevent harm being done to the child. so, why would that justify a half a million dollars payment? >> think about this, if you go out and commit a crime and you are someone who's a fee for someone who commits a murder and you are separated from your family. you are put into tension, put in jail and separated from your family. well, these folks came in and broke the law.
6:28 am
they broke the law, so of course they were separated from their family. of the fact that our borders are now open and without a doubt human trafficking and there is children being involved with this speaks to your point. yes, we don't know what is real or not real in this administration seemingly-- it seems like a broken record sometimes, does not care , does not care. they are the progressive left running a party and that's rolling out the american people want. dagen: if you cared about children he would not create the foundation where those of said children would be trafficked into the united states by coyotes and people who hate them and you wouldn't lose track of 45,000 of them who were brought into this country illegally, so if you care about these children , you enforce the border and if you care about the u.s. children you enforce the border. commerce men, beautiful place you are from. >> i love it. dagen: i know it well. folks who-- should come for a visit.
6:29 am
congressman, thank you. >> thank you. dagen: coming up, china building fake u.s. navy ships to use for possible missile target practice hudson institute senior fellow weizen, plus a vaccine backlash, aaron rodgers taking him for his personal choices, but he is also getting support. we are on it next.

6:36 am
that they put into it. dagen: i have visited the area many times starting when i was a little kid, so it's a place that has great honor and respect. thank you. we will see you at the top of the hour. the chinese military is building large-scale mockups resembling u.s. aircraft carriers and other warships for possible target practice in a remote desert in the northwest region. images captured by satellite company show a full-scale outline of a u.s. carrier and missile destroyers. the u.s. naval institute reports that the new target range complex has been used for ballistic missile testing. joining me now at sin institute senior fellow rebecah heinrichs. what you make of this? >> this is actually not the first time they have billed one of these. they built one of these in 2019. and they took it apart and then build another
6:37 am
one. this is more sophisticated. when they make it look more like a u.s. carrier, that gives them graver-- greater confidence when they go into testing that they are actually able to hit a u.s. carrier. it's very difficult to do. it's hard technology, but china continues to advance at a breakneck pace and they are now flashing his ability. this is consistent with the pentagon report that just came out that says part of what they are trying to do is to be able to push the united states out of the western pacific and they need to be able to do that by holding at risk our aircraft carriers. dagen: joe concha, jump in. >> i would love to talk about how president biden walked away from questions after he was asked about, are you going to confront president she-- president xi jinping as far as the origins of covid given a lab leak theory was once deemed reckless conspiracy theory has gained real traction as far as where
6:38 am
this virus may have come from. i'm just curious, is the president even interested in finding out where a virus came from that has killed more than 700,000 americans, millions worldwide was a politically not wise to even pursue this because he knows that it could open a rabbit hole to something they may not want to find? dagen: rebecca, did you hear joe >> yeah, i would things here, you know the biden administration policy towards china you could call it a policy towards china it's bipolar, so just do joe's point they don't want to talk about covid origins. president biden has take a tougher mocking tone towards a small portion of the american people who have for a variety of reasons chosen not to get vaccinated against covid 19. he's taken a mocking cut -- town and he won't even use that loan-- tone about xi jinping with it chinese communist party and
6:39 am
ultimately the ones making the pandemic works. we will have more pandemics if we don't get to the bottom of this pandemic into the behaviors surrounding the chinese communist party and the unleashing of it. the other thing is, this administration will focus on military dimension and they won't talk about human rights. you have a commerce secretary says she still things we need greater trade with china, which is enriching people who don't view us as a competitor, the chinese communists party uses us as an enemy. we are enriching our enemy and not dealing with these hard things because it's too difficult for this administration and they are naïve in their ideals and they don't know how to deal with it here today are in over their head. dagen: biden starts pressing china and xi jinping on the origins of covid coming to our point we are talking about, what if u.s. money went to fund research into a virus that then
6:40 am
went on to kill 5 million people around the globe. so, now china is goading and taunting in the united states with these mockups of carriers and the like because if we haven't been able to get tough about china killing 5 million people around the globe and 700,000 americans, they can get away with anything, certainly under this president, rebecca. >> that is true and the other thing also even if we got to the bottom of what was actually going on in that lab or how much dr. fauci was involved, i mean, that's the other thing creating the data in the american people and they don't trust this administration because they won't even talk about dr. fauci's involvement, so there's not trust their, but even if we handle that problem there are still all kinds of behavior from the chinese communist party and these scientists, the woman blowing the whistle on what was going on inside of china has been arrested and it has not been able to be
6:41 am
seen. this is what happens when you try to reveal what's going on in the chinese communist party so there is plenty of questions that are left unanswered about why the chinese communist party behaved in a way to maximize the spread of this deadly disease across the world. dagen: let me correct myself, 755,000 dead americans and almost-- in terms of the vilification of the unvaccinated , it's all a ruse. there's almost one 100% of people in this country over the age of 65 have gotten one shot and more than 80% of people over the age of 18 have gotten one shot, so it's only-- it's a theater. it's a theater of fear to get people to fall in line and to allow this administration to talk about the virus rather than talking about one failure after another after another and then literally putting the hammer down on
6:42 am
hard-working americans, whether it's trying to enforce some vaccine mandate, but then rising prices. that's on this administration all day long. rebecca, thank you for being here so early this morning talking about china. always a pleasure. >> thank you. dagen: rebecah heinrichs. coming up, fighting a worker shortage and what companies are doing to get people in the door. don't miss out on foxbusiness prime time tonight our own at cheryl house american dream home at 8:00 p.m. eastern. new episodes followed by mansion global with casey mcdonnell at 9:00 p.m. you don't want to miss a moment of those two ladies. you are watching "mornings with maria" live on foxbusiness. ♪♪

america's career coach and from paycheck to perfect kenneth coleman. you talk about this new book saying companies are in a bidding war for talent. how much are they paying >> turns out a lot more. wages are up almost 5% over last year and what's really happening is that companies are doing more than just pay at there is a local story i heard about job fair local company offering $100 signing bonus and no one showed up because amazon local international was offering in a course around the country, 3000 $a bonus. "wall street journal" just published an article over the weekend with the headline saying it all, help really wanted to but they are doing is companies are no longer requiring education. a day are no longer requiring experience and background checks. companies are trying to find a talent and so this means it's a tremendous time for the
6:48 am
american worker to level up to do something that they have always wanted to do, not just chase a paycheck and that's what we talk about in the book. paycheck yes, we want a fatter paycheck, but people want more meaning and that's one of the big revelations we have seen this year coming out of covid. it's really a interesting time. i think it's an arms race to for companies to try to get talent. dagen: but, when that small businesses will have trouble-- a race they will have a-- have trouble running and certainly winning. joel shuman is here. joel, jumping. >> good morning. to what extent can technology help, you know help automate or you know machine learning or ai we also have 75 million baby boomers retiring over the next years and we have some technology that enables outsourcing to remote areas, so to what extent will this help these companies are getting their margins squeezed, maybe try to
6:49 am
postpone this issue or help mitigate some of the major problems they have a neck that's a good point. you are going to see small businesses have to figure out what is automation look like, what is the cost of labor versus technology and how will that change the way they do things. for instance, i think you will see a trend with the traditional dying inexperience, it's not four or five star, you will see that quick serve, fast food model come to traditional chains and even smaller restaurants where take-out becomes the order of the day. we will really see a crunch between what is the high touch service, the human element versus automation. i think you bring up a good point. we will see a very interesting shift. you brought up baby boomers and i think it's an interesting point. some of them will retire from maybe their longtime career, but there will be opportunities to move
6:50 am
into second careers because of that human element. once this all shakes out, business owners a specifically small business owners will win. they will beat the amazons locally with high touch service and that's where experience in the human touch will come in a. dagen: before we go, macy's is raising its hourly wage to $15 an hour adding an education benefit covering one 100% of college tuition, books and fees to your tell us more about the incentive companies are offering >> i'm glad you brought that up. we are seeing big companies like macy's, target, walmart offering full tuition, so this right now is a ^-caret. it's going to change the way businesses have to recruit talent. no longer will people join just for a paycheck or for really nice 4 o 1 k matching program. specifically millennial's which are the number one demographic in the workforce. you will have to show them a ladder to where their life gets better as a result for working for you, not just a

7:05 am
jay powell for his position as fed chief. maria bartiromo reported two weeks ago that several sources are telling her powell would not be reappointed. something i predicted would happen weeks ago. federal reserve governor randy quarrels announcing he would resign, biden now has four open positions to fill. joel, what do you make of all of this? >> well, the fed signaled that they have not going to raise rates until we have full employment. what does that mean? we had full employment back in the reagan administration -- i mean, during the trump administration when we had unemployment rates 4.1, 3.1 and 3.8%. we have now unemployment north of 4.8% and even though it's less than what has traditionally been over the last years, it's still 1, 1 and a half percent of what we had in 2019. if we do have a rate hike and we
7:06 am
probably will see it very soon and when i say soon, i mean, mid to next year, mid to the late next year because we have negative real interest rates, the negative interest -- real interest rate imflies because inflations are around 5% or more and the current rate is around 0, the real rate is negative 5% plus and we haven't had this in many, many years it's traditionally 2 to 3%. no administration can maintain negative interest rates long term and we see japan and china have real positive real interest rates but there aren't many other countries around the world that are positive. they are almost all negative. at some point the rate has to rise because otherwise we will be losing money to the inflation. dagen: how does the stock market react to it? it's nothing that we've really ever seen in terms of the amount
7:07 am
of fiscal and monetary stimulus. i can't imagine it ends well. >> well, i mean, in the short-term what we have seen is actually ironically a shift towards risk capital so we have seen crypto is going up and, you know, in record highs we are seeing gross stocks, sire growth stocks performing really well. what we are seeing because they are delaying the rate hikes, we are seeing the markets respond positively but at some point when the rates start going back up, we will see probably the markets, you know, suffer in some of the areas that have been inflated are going to have a tough time to recover and we saw this by the way in march, late february, mid to late february, march, april, many high-growth areas were hit hard. dagen: right. denise, inflation, gold, gold hitting a two-month peak yesterday. prices at 18.24 an ounce, your thoughts on gold? >> it's been a bear market for 2

years but a bull market over a decade. i'm much more bullish of gold than i am of bitcoin. anybody else -- everybody knows that i've been antagonistic toward bitcoin for a long period of time. gold has proven itself over the centuries. i'm not a gold bug. there are times when we want us to be neutral of gold. gold is technically breaking to the upside. 18 and a quarter is important. it gets interesting above 15.50. i'm bullish. i'm not a gold bug. there are times where you're supposed to be long and times where you're supposed to be short and i think this time you're supposed to be long. it's been centuries in the making and it's been a bear market for two years and the bear market that we have had for two years is ending as we are speaking this morning. dagen: in the a gold bugs, gold bugs are long forever pretty much. have it buried in the backyard. i joke. lee, general electric announcing that it's going to break up into

three separate publicly traded company focusing on growth sect, aviation and energy. this is truly the end to the house that jack welch built that maybe only he could run, your reaction to this move by ge? >> well, i think -- it puts the icing on the cake of 20 years of ge bringing permanent loss of capital to their shareholders. jack welch may have built this thing but built it over financial engineering and over half of the company was destroyed because of the house that he built. the only thing that makes money but we have to remember that 2017 acquisition of baker hughes was a stock. i was in new mexico, so we live in oil country and it was a joke. they don't know the culture, they don't know how to run it. the only interesting that i like is not they are going to pull the trigger and do something
7:10 am
nice for shareholders, they will split off aviation which might have a chance to live some day but i think baker hughes is a disaster. when the spin ahs happens, the good kid, health care rockets up and the bad kid, the left for dead baker hughes no culture there is going to get sold off for so cheap that you might be able to make some money on it in the same way like garthman said, when gold is in a bear market for years, you want to buy it because it's going to go higher you wanted to trade it, i would say look at the blown-up baker hughes as possibly a value play or i'm so delighted for the people that work at ge because so many own that stock and have been punished for decades based off the financial engineering. dagen: you're leaving out two

7:18 am
joel. [laughter] >> joel: i couldn't agree more with joe. as he pointed out, the 48% is probably very generous. the economy and the continued spending for infrastructure is getting out of hand particularly when we had inflation. he mentioned the supply shock issues and so forth, i mean, we also have to worry about the defense and particularly, you know, what's going to happen with china and taiwan. taiwan has most of the world semiconductors. we are critically dependent on the semiconductors and what's going to happen. when we talk about we don't have a plan b, what's the plan b for semiconductors if all of a sudden taiwan is no longer independent and we really have to worry about some of the big issues. so i agree with them. there are a lot of issues on the table here, things could have been handled much differently and inflation that has to be taken -- put under control and we've got major issues here particularly with economy that's the number 1 issue and i

dagen: cnn ryan facing backlash over asking pete buttigieg racism built in our roadways in white house briefing. >> the construct of how you will deconstruct the racism that was built in the roadway. >> i'm still surprised that people were surprised when i pointed to the fact that if a highway was built for the
7:23 am
purpose of dividing a white and a black neighborhood or if an underpass was constructed such that a bus carrying mostly black and puerto rican kids or would have been in new york was designed too low for it to pass by, that obviously reflects racism that went to design choices. i don't have anything to lose by confronting the simple reality. dagen: ryan's question becoming hot topic on social media. the roads are racists, we must get rid of the roads. joining me right now former omb director russ. >> russ, i don't know -- i'm not going to say anything. just your reaction to that exchange? >> yeah, it was a stunning exchange. number 1, you only hear the same example that people have been using since 1920 and 1930's of
7:24 am
robert moses and the bridges and we never hear anything recent and i think the reporter herself got to the radicalness of the agenda. when you can say that any road or bridge is racist, you now have an incredible leverage point to reconstruct the entire communities on the basis of power and that is something that should be incredibly scary to communities across the country. this is not just an infrastructure bill. this is a desired outcome to be able to reconstruct communities and to assert that roads and bridges are fundmentally flawed because they were designed in the basis of racist choices. dagen: joe concha, jump in here, he raises the master built moses and he allegedly here in new york city ordered that bridges be built low enough to discourage travel to and from
7:25 am
long island beaches. that being said, i think about what is -- what hurts lower income americans, what hurts black americans, latino americans living in cities is the poor public transit. and so that is a problem in the most liberal cities in the nation. here in new york city the subway is an oh bam nation and hardship for people in the outer borough who is have to commute to work. so people who find racist in everything, choose to overlook that and the horrible conditions in san francisco and the poor infrastructure there but just jump in here with russ, joe. >> well, i will actually quote bill mahr who is at odd.
7:26 am
he had a good line on hbo. the problem with our country while china is building new bridges, we are thinking about what to rename them. in this situation, i just don't understand where the transportation secretary is going with this. so are we going to now deconstruct bridges, say in new york city where traffic, i'm 20 miles out here in jersey and during rush hour it takes me two hours to get into the city. what are we going to deconstruct exactly. are we going to start with the george washington bridge or the brooklyn bridge or the overpass and if nice to say if you're going to appeal to the woke crowd. by the way, april ryan who asked that question, i'm old enough to remember when she actually agreed to host a fundraising event for pete buttigieg when he was a 2020 presidential candidate. reporters aren't supposed to be doing that and only after she got caught did she say, oi didn't know it was a campaign event.
7:27 am
that's where we stand here. the transportation secretary, dagen, and pete buttigieg should be asked about crisis and have you visited one port, one in long beach, new york, savannah and new jersey, of course, you haven't because that's your job right now and not to be talking about this sort of rhetoric which can never actually be a reality unless we are spending trillions on construct and deconstructing bridges and overpasses in the country. dagen: russ you hit on something that this effort, using racism to reconfigure or reconstruct communities, this opens the door for the money grab, the one -- over 1 trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. there are literally tens of billions of dollars in this thing that just like -- that's what's at play here because money equals the power that politicians crave somitedly.
7:28 am
>> no question. yesterday's interview was revealing. pete buttigieg saying they need to construct a formula to allow them to distribute 40% to privileged communities on their definition of underserved communities which is a woke definition. that's where i get the notion that this is designed to reconstruct on the basis of power politics and this is something that -- the other aspect is -- the reporter mentioned that she's oppose today widening of roads. well, if widening roads is what will leave you to a per se definition of racism, we have a real problem now in terms of what actual infrastructure is. are we able going to do roads and bridges. maybe that explains why roads and bridges is such a small percentage to have package. it gets to the fundamentals of what this administration's agenda is. dagen: it does. i'm sorry, i didn't hear that last part that you were saying. you were saying it gets to the
7:29 am
fundamentals of what this administration is doing. what is that before we go? >> yeah, very simply that an infrastructure package that only has about 10% for roads and bridges, it gets -- if you dig deeper it's because animated by this woke agenda that doesn't really want to do roads and bridges. it wants to do do something else. it wants to reconstruct communities. dagen: russ vought, always a pleasure, sir, thank you. coming up drama in dc alexandria ocasio-cortez defending decision to vote against the majority of her party on the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill. we break that down next. plus the price of pizza, you will never guess how much it is for one slice of pizza in the big apple. we will tell you live on mornings with maria coming up.

7:36 am
very excited that the money is going to be spent on roads and bridges in their districts and i will make you a bet right now, they will go out and take credit for the federal dollars when that money is being used to fix roads in their districts. dagen: were you surprised on how many republicans got on board with it? congresswoman: i was not because i talked to them a lot. i'm somebody that works with every member of congress. i respect them, i listen to them. i hear the perspectives. i knew that this was hard, it was very hard for them, their leadership was asking not to vote for it. maybe breaking a few arms because they didn't want to give president biden a win and these were, you know, we have to find a way to bring ourselves together. these were republicans that wanted to vote for their districts and there are many, many things that every member of congress needs for their districts, every american is going to benefit from the bill that was passed friday night. dagen: well, i think there's some people who would beg to
7:37 am
differ with that. congresswoman: roads and bridges and supply chain becoming more resilient, water pipes. dagen: congresswoman, roughly 10% of the bill goes to roads and bridges. it's the other 90% where there's an editorial in the wall street journal that just goes into the issues with it and i will quote out of it, concerns would be out of control, costs-blown deadlines and real and metaphorically bridges to nowhere, this is a heavy lift to government, all the way down to state and local to allocate this money in a way that actually produces results. bigger picture, are you worried, though, about inflation with -- congress has already passed more than $3 trillion of spending just this year on top of the trillions last year and so if you're talking about inflation being a primary concern of your

constituents and people across the country, how can you justify spending trillions of dollars more only making the problem worse for working men and women? congresswoman: dagen, i want to ask you questions in two ways. yesterday morning i told my staff, i want accounting of every dollar that's coming to michigan that's from the bill and how is it going to come in, is it going to go through an agency, a grand, go into allocation to the state and i'm setting up a tracker and i want to know how every dollar is spent and how people in my district get those dollars and how to be used and every member needs to be that detailed and paying attention to it. i agree with that part. am i worried about inflation, yes, we are seeing inflation right now but i've talked to a lot of economists and moodies put out a new study and they believe that things in this bill will address it. you were talking about the secretary of transportation and the logistics, well, this is
7:39 am
going to help fix our logistics. the fact of the matter is spending patterns have changed in the last year so services or gyms or restaurants put into goods. we have a shortage of goods. we have people that aren't in the workforce because they can't get child care or long-term care. when we get people having access to care and paying the decent wage and people can go back to the jobs that are open, we will be producing house goods. by the way -- dagen: congresswoman -- >> yeah. dagen: it's a political animal more so now than ever even coming on this program mark using the terms human infrastructure which is a political talking point and has no real economic meaning, but you could argue on the flip side if you pay -- if you give people money for child care with the increased child allowance and there's no work requirement,
7:40 am
they could take the money and, you know, sit at home with the child allowance. if you give them -- >> congresswoman: first of all, it's going to be built into this now. these rules and regulations have to be put out, but that money is meant for real child care, people looking for a job and having jobs and we've got to -- look, there are -- we have to make sure without you even saying to me on fox this morning i said to my staff, tracking every one of they will and want to know how it's happening and how it's going to be spent because if you're in michigan, this is the story from saturday. i got home and i got out of my car and fell on pothole and i said to people, this is what we are going to fix, our roads are in terrible shape and in michigan, we've got lead, we had flint and now bent and harbor and that's happening across the country. 50% of the children whose blood has been tested to pediatrics
7:41 am
trauma has lead in their blood. we have to get this done. there are things i don't like in this infrastructure. dagen: congresswoman, i would argue, and by the way with the child care issue, i've seen the more money the government funnels into an industry whether it's college or even the housing markets through subsidized mortgages, it just raises the prices. so it's -- it's corporate welfare, if you will, and that's one of the concerns about funneling money into the child care industry. that being said, but of the billions of upon billions of dollars that have been allocated to the states, are you actually saying that the states don't have enough money to fix a pothole and i hope that you're okay, potholes are a problem everywhere? but like the fed -- the amount of money coming in to the federal government was at a record in the most recent fiscal year. there's plenty of money to go around in terms of you don't need to allocate another
7:42 am
4 trillion, 4 this will dollars plus. >> you know, our governor ran 3 years on platform to fix the damn roads. i was standing in pothole that is came up to here on me. we have a problem and we are trying to get the problem out there but it's a problem across the country. you know how unsafe the bridges are that we have? by the way, like it or not, we are starting to move to electric vehicles and we've got to build a charging infrastructure across this country and that's something else that's got to be done. dagen: i can argue -- excuse me, discuss with you electric vehicles. congresswoman: you can have discussions. dagen: and charging stations and the federal government -- taxpayer money going to build what we didn't build as taxpayers in terms of the network of gasoline stations across the nation, but you passed the infrastructure bill
7:43 am
now comes whatever in addition. >> build back better. dagen: we will see. good luck, congresswoman arguing to the people across the country that we need at $4 trillion when people are really struggling to buy groceries and fill up the cars. >> it's not another 4 trillion. the second billion is not 4 trillion, it's gone down 3.5 to approximately 1.75, 1.8. we will see what the cbo scores it out. dagen: we will see how big it gets. how about that? debbi dingell, congresswoman from the fine state of michigan. i was in detroit recently and it was fabulous. congresswoman: great. call me when you're here next time. dagen: i love the people of michigan, it's the hub and manufacturing greaseness. congresswoman: have a good day. dagen: soaring gas prices show nothing signs of slowing down. we take you to one station where the price for a regular gallon

dingel with inflation where it is, i don't know how anyone in congress could justify spending additional $4 trillion and 4 trillion when you take out the gimmicks and the accounting shenanigans. it's $4 trillion on top of the roughly, it was 5 trillion and then another 3 -- north of 3 trillion this year. when you've got inflation skyrocketing, how can you not put your foot down about this garbage tactic energy policy out of the administration and also put your foot down to additional spending, concha? joe: remember, dagen, we are also talking about the trillion plus that was first passed under president trump and that administration and that congress and senate when the pandemic first began. that money still hasn't been fully spent yet we keep saying, okay, we need this other bill, this other bill but we are not saying it, the biden administration is saying it and the far-left wing of the democratic party.

look, i'm not an economist by any stretch but i did take econ 101, i'm pretty sure that if you print more money and flood it the inflation will go up and we are at 30-year core high now and if the bill passes, what will do that? meanwhile you have the energy secretary on bloomberg, i think it was tom king interviewing her and she laughs at the question of what are you going to do about this and she has no answer and that's the problem with this administration, the perception in general. they don't have basic answers to basic questions on how you are going to solve the problem. they seem to be in these positions more for the vanity and celebrity of it than actually doing their job. dagen: is it too much to ask for the energy secretary to actually understand how the energy sector works and is it too much to ask for a secretary in biden administration to actually give a flying you know what about the hardships that everyday americans are facing? is it too much to ask for some

8:36 am
hiring as they grow desperate dropping educational requirements, background checks hiring applicants within minutes macy's joining long list of employees offering free tuition joining me former c.k. restaurant ceo, advisory board member andy puzder how hard to fire an easy decision for large employer but the small guys and gals who get, quite frankly, screwed in all this. >> very difficult to find employees right now, there is a big move, out there for people not to work, getting, government support of not to do so you discouraging people from reentering labor force maybe keep unemployment rate down hurting small businesses terribly vaccine mandates can't dill how many restaurant operators called me when the
8:37 am
mandate was proposed going to lose half workforce so tremendously difficult why you see all these benefits going to employees why you see wages going up, none of that it seems enough to pull people back in. dagen: numbers didn't seem to improve in october for unemployment would you credit that to have extra unemployment benefits expiring. >> the survey for unemployment rate, goes from middle of the prior month to the middle of the month representing so, the unemployment numbers for october, really came from middle of september, through the middle of october and that was a week after those that 300 dollar unemployment benefit stopped. but you also keep in mind that the labor participation rate people working didn't change dismal low number 45-year low since beginning of the year holding down unemployment rate
8:38 am
so, even if thank you just had as many people working, or looking for work, as was the case in say june, february of 2020 unemployment rate would be 7%, so a lot of this is people not wanting to enter the labor force, and even though we created more jobs because cut back on benefits in october we are still not seeing people jumping back into the labor force. dagen: what about the message that you hear from the left liberals democrats in washington we need to pass this four trillion-dollar "build back better" to get people back in labor force if they need free childcare that is part of the problem is that we need the -- incentive to get people back on the job ro, well, it wasn't a problem during the trump administration. getting people back into labor force they would gladly do it because wages were
8:39 am
skyrocketing particularly those kind of working class americans, wages going up much faster than their bosses supervisors managers, we had -- income gap that was shrinking. >> you are right it was real wages increasing not only going up but going up faster than inflation rate. that hasn't been the case last six months even though you see wages going up, you have not seen them keeping pace with inflation. the problem here is that this "build back better" bill a lot of benefits going to keep joe manchin has complaints about this the problem is there is no work requirement, so if you were trying to incentivize people to go back to work you do what bill clinton and newt gingrich did back in late 1990s benefits to people returning to work if you can work should you work that is particular in america the benefits what they are trying
8:40 am
to set up is a form of universal basic income where they keep passing all individual benefit plans produce increased, food stamps snap benefit child tax credit coming in 300 dollars per child -- so doing things that increase people's income without offsetting requiring people to go back to work you end up with very low labor participation, can't find workers. dagen: unemployment rate 50-year low with no freebies from the federal government to get people. >> the labor participation was going up never during obama easier. under trump went up 50-year low in unemployment that is what you want to see. dagen: freedom and opportunity. that is kind of what america is about joe concha jump in. >> i am curious andy do you ultimately trust senator joe manchin kyrsten sinema democrats west virginia
8:41 am
arizona as far as when chips are down next bill more trillions about to be spent, that they will hold line say we see gimmicks as far as this costing four trillion, five trillion not 1.75 trillion we see through the fact that this isn'tgoing to be paid for by stretch of imagination what white house saying going to be paid for. do you think they hold the line don't allow this to pass the nat. >> my answer would be there are few politicians if any that i trust i think sinema is angry, they have come after her taking rational position followed her in rest roop disrupted a wedding she was attending i think she is angry on top of being right, joe manchin i think sees the nonsense here west virginia heavily for president trump really it is clearly even though he is a democrat clearly a red state so he
8:42 am
snows what the people in his state want he also saying look i am not a liberal never been a liberal i don't support this kind of spending i don't support of these programs without a work requirement, he is making the lot of -- rationale sane economic argument you would think would with come from a seasoned polling has a bit of reality i am hope they stick to guns that they don't let this go through there is a lot of pressure on them to do so again i don't know a lot of politicians that i mistrust far. >> driving a maserati living on a boat just become a republican for pete's sake. >> we what are you doing here? also the west virginia can look over border into virginia see direction of politics what folks want, andy thank you so much great to see you this morning. >> thanks. great to see you --

8:50 am
cyberterrorism do you think the cryptos will drop in value what can is your take. >> also part of the rven i think country coin voyageer are companies to invest in, because they have mitigated as much as possible regulatory risk supercompliant i can fault they will not being tycompliant they would grow faster coinbase 15 to 16% global crypto volume in terms of trading activity, they could be a lot higher if they are offshore doing things different. you know he largest play in the state 50% in terms of market share volume they also, they are offshore, so, if you you buffer regulatory risk two companies have a taken painful steps, in dampened some growth
