dagen: i love you to a baseball interviews because you love it so much. connell: let's go to nicole petallides. nicole: i love the markets. the dow jones industrials down about 23 points. number one, the market is overbought here in the near term. three straight weeks of gains. also there is a wait and see mode. we will get that testimony. a couple of things also worth noting as we see the dow down 22 points, how that plays into the feds cards. the lowest in two years. you have gotten in earnings. names like coca-cola and ups. you put it all together.
back to you. dagen: some key votes in the senate expected to give way right now. harry reads nuclear option. connell: he wants to vote on some key figures. regulating businesses around the country. he is threatening to invoke what would be a dramatic change in the rules of the senate. that would include yanking the republicans right to filibuster. this kind of inside baseball back and forth all night long. >> especially when you consider both parties were in exact opposite positions and 2005 when the president was a republican.
public polling was the same thing. right now, they are cobbling together a last-minute deal. they will save us from the nuclear option. it is always a nuclear option or the fiscal cliff or this dramatically dramatic thing. dagen: something poisoning the environment in washington. [ laughter ] dagen: can you really make it much worse than what it is right now. >> the country is getting more polarized or is at least a more
ideological way. we have a divided government. that is the way that it is structured to be. it is also ugly and not very pleasant to experience. combine that with the responsibility. connell: i do not know if it is worse now than ever. they were talking about meeting in the old senate chamber. it is worse now than in some time. this kind of speaks to the fact that nothing gets done. the idea of the filibuster is you can filibuster just about anything.
>> i do not know what should be the proper perfect level. i think it is a useful tool in our system, for what is required here, yes, we have this polarization, but we also have this defection from voters of two tribes. they are running away screaming. they are going to have to figure out some kind of way over working and doing business if they will get any kind of public support. having a budget and having hearings and things like that. connell: go nuclear. dagen: exactly. thank you so much for being here. connell: voting against the chairman's policies. in an exclusive interview, peter barnes is standing by in kansas
city. peter: that is right. let's get right to monetary policy and quantitative easing. we have been reading and hearing a lot from that officials about the future course of quantitative easing whether or not to start to dial it down. some of this information has been confusing. can you help clarify this for us? what is the future of qe? >> well, i will offer my views. quantitative easing has served a role during the course of the crisis, but more recently the open ended program has raised questions for me about its cost relative to its benefit here i think the economy has continued to recover even though that has been slow, we have seen positive
trends. the discussion about how much longer, when will that outlook for the labor market be sufficient to allow the committee to make adjustments, we have come to that point. the minutes of the most recent meeting have suggested that. the signals to the market after a long period of engaging in this kind of policy will be a bit confusing, may create communication challenges for us. i think creating that dialogue is important. peter: how do you think that this should play out then? are you satisfied with the job growth? do you feel that it is time to start tapering in the next meeting or two? would you support that? >> i think it is time. the labor market have shown now
for the last six months pretty steady gains, close to 200,000 per month. that is a good indicator that there has been sustained improvement here and that i think it would be appropriate given the size of our balance sheet. peter: when would you like to see those adjustments start? how much adjustment would you like to see? would you like to see it cut to 75 or would you like, as the minutes suggested, and it completely by the end of the year? >> i think that is a discussion that the committee will have to have. i am open to engaging that would like colleagues about the right pace. i think that sooner is appropriate to begin now.
we have a long way to go if we will do this in a gradual and systemic way. peter: is a path that the chairman laid out at the press conference when he was deputized by the fomc members to try to provide some explanations, guidance, were you comfortable with that path? if job creation continues at this pace, if the economy continues to grow decently and at a healthy pace, you start the tapering later this year and wind it down sometime next year, by the time the unemployment rate hit 7% or would you like to see it done faster and sooner? >> i have been a proponent of doing it faster and sooner. if you are going to move in a gradual way, you may find yourself in 2014.
whether that corresponds to a 7% unemployment rate, that has been thrown out as a potential target. as people come back into the labor force, you may see that number move around two. my approach would be a more systemic approach. peter: there was a little confusion in the minutes as well. about half of the participants favored ending quantitative easing by the end of this year. how do we caught investors and reporters and consumers, process that information?
>> when the individual participants on the fomc are preparing those projections, you are doing that based on your own views. you get to see a central tendency. you get to see how those fall out. we just continued to buy at the pace of 85 billion a month. the majority of the committee continues to support speech on waiting on the data as we have heard over and over. wait just a moment, if you will. waiting for the statements on qe. her background is in bank regulation. we will do that on our website.

i think it will continue to do extraordinarily well. i see extraordinary value. dagen: we had year after year of record filings for people to get guns. in the short run, cause you said long run, but in the next year, could it be more of what we have seen recently? charles: they announced a buyback. they just recently in the last couple days said we would buy this back. it kind of reminds me of old management. all of a sudden the stock is up 100%. trying to break out. i think it is worth a shot.

that, not a tragedy, but a fine growth rate, suspect if? >> not in my model. it's about the slope of the line that's going this way opposed to this way. provided they are going to fix something in gdp, we'll remain bearish on chinese growth, and what's interesting with the u.s. if rates rise and dollar strengthens, u.s. growth curb goes this way when everybody thinks it can't. dennis: well handled, nicely done, thank you for being with us today, keith. >> thanks. cheryl: investigators probe the ethiopia airliner dreamliner fire that happened now saying a transmitter could be one of the several components that started the blaze. initially, when the fire was reported, and we showed you live pictures on fox business, it was, of course, speculate about the battery. there are two batteries on this aircraft. there's the main battery in the front made by a japanese company, and then the ap battery in the back of the plane. again, made by a japanese company. the focus on the transmitter of
the aircraft in the tail of the aircraft, and i want to show you in particular what we're talking about here. the back of the plane, back of the 787, there's the fin, of course, but if you look at the end here, the tail fin, it's in this section in the gally we talk about where the transmitter made by honeywell international, and they are now, of course, cooperating with investigators in britain. let's get more into this now with the senior analyst, and tom sullivan. gentleman, starting with you, tom, on the issue. is it a long term problem for boeing? tom, you said in the past because the plane is so new, so high-tech, the concern is 5eur8s around the world have a lot to deal with, repair costs, and possibly breakdowns 37 >> and that's the problem, the fact it was not the battery. i'll raise my hand and speculation on the battery, but
it's the electrical system that boeing's having troubles with. it's worse news for boefact thad you heard this, checial, the fact that all new airplanes have tb. that's true, other than with the 787, almost all of the squawks that have been sent in regarding problems on the plane have been electrical. it goes back, and they had to make sure they worked together, and they are just plugging in electrical pieces, and in your house, breakers go off, but i don't think honeywell has the problem at all. their elt, their transmitter, has been used since 2005 without any problems with the same exact battery. it's the electrical system in the 787 that is not working
right. cheryl: i think that's interesting what you are bringing up, tom, because, again, and you mentioned the battery and transmitter made by honeywell, that's been around for a decade or so? >> yes. it's a proven piece of equipment. there's no problem with that. the problem is when you plug one instrument in to another instrument in, actually tens of thousands of pieces of the electrical system for a 787, that's where the engineers that used to be in dallas and seattle used to make sure all that worked. they are not there anymore. i think boeing has a quality control problem. cheryl: they have 3,000 planes. initially, looking at this issue coming in on friday and watching the fire putting it out, you know, certainly, looking at the 787 overall, the question is can ethiopia airlines afford to do this repair? yesterday, they said you have to peel back the burnt section,
relayer the existing carbon fiber on top of the airplane, and it might be a fix so expensive, she was saying, it could be a fix costing more than what the plane is worth. i mean, what do you make of that? >> it's drks boeing had to prove to the faa that because the planes are damaged some way, somehow, they have to repair them. it is more expensive than just putting aluminum or metal back on there, but it is reparable. i think the problem is not the come poz sit. the problem is the fact you have all pieces that are not somehow working together and they are blowing circuits all over the plane. cheryl: what's it mean for air because, tom? they took a safer approach, if you will, how they phrase it, a
safer approach, building the 380 as well, looking at footage of that right now, paris air show debuted this year, fanfare, and is it a good thing for air bus? >> it's got to help them. they use composite in the materials too, but, yes, they decided to scrap the lithium ion battery problem by just going right to the old standard batteries used in airplanes for years. they are not the only ones who did it. also, the business jets which is my territory, they also scrapped -- they had a new plane coming out, a citation four with a liton ion saying, no, we're going back to the regular battery. cheryl: interesting. tom sullivan, host of the tom sullivan show here on fox business, and a pilot, thank you so much. >> thank you. cheryl: we had technical difficulties, but there's an out perform rating on boeing. his opinion here from an analyst perspective that you should be
buying the stock at this point. we'll get him back on the show. dennis, back to you for what's bugging you. dennis: i'll tell you what's bugging me, the explosion in disability payments. another case of government entitlements bloated and out of control. we have 1 # 1 # million people on disability. we pay them $140 billion a year and a million more people sign up every year. now, the number of people on disability is up four-fold since 1970 #, but the money we pay them is up eight-fold even adjusting for inflation paying people on disability twice as much per person as we used to. now, people get on disability at an average age of 50 # and stay on it until social security kicks in by age 67. they each receive 300,000 dollars over those years, so who is getting it? look at the chart. barely any increase in the past decade in illnesses like heart disease, hard to fake. look at this chart. the rate of hard to disprove
mental disorders up 50%. the back pain cases doubled. that sounds to me like a lot of fraud going on as there is whenever taxpayer dollars are handed out like penny candy like food stamps, jobless benefits, free cell phones, college loans, and disability taxes rise for you and your employer unless somebody stops it. your turn to weigh in. tweet me. disability payments out of control? how to fix it at denniskneale coming up. cheryl: builders are building on confidence, hitting a seven-year high. one-on-one with the national association of builders, jerry howard, saying they face head winds. dennis: a yeah on the job for meyer, and charles payne is ahead on whether she made yahoo a buy. cheryl: the real stars of new york city's triathlon sponsored by, take a look at this, fox

deliberate effort on the part of anybody to constrict the amount of housing in the market. rather, i think conditions have constricted the amount of housing in the market, and i'm concerned that if the builders don't start building much needed housing that the next bubble will come because of a supply shortage. that is not an issue right now but it goes to out pulp and refute the assertion that the journal is making that builders were deliberately constrict. does not make sense. and believe it. cheryl: thank you for responding bank issues is something you and i talked about before. credit quality and credit problems not just for potential homebuyers but also some of the smaller name builders. fannie and freddie are certainly on the residential side. also, how of the bank's looking now with regards to builders that you represent? >> well, i'll tell you, they're caught between a rock and a hard place. a lot of them don't know what the rules will be. regulations have not all been
