♪ >> i'm adam shapiro and for liz claman. it is the last hour of trading, and we are looking at red arrows across the board. investors are paying a lot of attention to what the feds are saying about the taper or lack thereof. four of them, including james ballard speaking analyst data the u.s. economy and the future of the fed on a buying program.
it is worrying investors. peter barnes will have more of that in just a moment. concern over gridlock in washington and a potential failure to pass a new budget has raised the debt ceiling and starts to grow. the house just passing a bill that would keep the government open until mid december, but it would eliminate the president's health care law. some health care stocks popping as a result. names like at unanimous religion, halogen, and cigna are up on an otherwise mostly down day. in just a moment we are going to be joined by a top health care executive, the chairman and ceo of universal health services, alan miller. shares of tesla are zooming to the record highs for the second day in a row. we want to go to nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange. my brother just got one and he loves it, but the design of the stock. someone else says. >> reporter: he got a great car. it certainly has gotten rave reviews from consumer reports.
in near perfect store. 18583. the year-to-date charge, year today of 439%. when you talk about tesla, obviously talking about the electric cars. general motors to of for example, nothing that they too are working on an electric car and it will be a lot cheaper than that. hitting those numbers next. in fact, we don't see it in the size of again.
we can expect a surge in trading volume, but what is dragging down the markets? we want to bring in our traders from the new york stock exchange, cme group, and the nymex. i want to start with you. i thought everyone was relieved. >> i think they were. and a heck of global. short term. a lot of stuff going on today. three big stocks into them. today's underlying problem is the fact that we are in the middle of dysfunctional politics in washington of the debt ceiling. we have been here before. we all know what the eventual outcome will be. the process is unnerving, creates a huge unknown command a market was right to take money
off the table. adam: the me ask you this question, we see oil prices go up. what are you falling down at the cme in regards to this case we get in washington. >> it is the ten year. we have to watch that. i can't believe i'm going to say it on tv, but we have a better chance of going to have that we give back to 3%. the fed with a they have said on wednesday is borrow biggest deal growth from the future -- the next five years and tried to bring it forward. if it does not happen we risk going into a deflationary environment. peter barnes in just a second. the let me ask you that question. are we seeing an impact of fed
policy, fiscal policy. >> we are seeing impaction but the those areas. the fed came out with the tapering not being cut down. the bond buying program, we rally end up quite hard. a lot of laws that should not be there. no media we may have a government shut down not give the economy. bechtel we go. also some very important technical levels. we are still going to see more downside. we are not done yet. adam: when you see the lower levels than concerned about the global economy. let me ask you about this. we keep getting indicators. but then we get the sense that perhaps in the united states it is not as good as we would like to be. target not hiring as many part-time holiday workers is the ready for the all-important
holiday shopping season. people who are putting their money in equities be concerned about that issue? adam: we have breaking news. have to stop the. breaking news. they stopped trading. announced earlier this week that they are going to be laying off 40% of their workforce, we will check this out as soon as we have more we will get back to you. >> we would have the company pretty much saying they are on the block. perhaps there is a deal. adam: you could never resist buyout. >> well, i think they are going to go lower. ultimately deflationary.
what nafta 2 percent growth. adam: let me ask you this. when you talk about deflation, i mean, you seem very concerned about this. how should that be protecting myself? bonds are not the place to go. where do i go? >> a lot of people and talking about golden have great it will beat with the weaker dollar after the fed said what they did because the last two meetings, they highlighted the fact that there were about lower rates to law which means deflationary, but they cannot use that word. stay out of gold. a lot of people think that will be a place to go. i think slowly but surely this bond market rallies in d.c. rates around 2 percent, but i'm afraid to say it. at think that is it. adam: if deflation is going to be the word of the day commode is that going to do for oil? >> as a matter of fact, that is going to be a big level, and if we break it will be lower. deflationary could easily take us down.
economies don't get better, we have a slowdown in the economy. we could see $60 of crude oil per barrel. adam: we have deadlock in washington. we don't know if the government will be funded after september. we will give you the last word. is that the kind of thing that puts us over the edge or would it be the end of october? >> i don't think it will put us over the age. it will be another tactic or we will come to some sort of agreement. it was fallout. some sort of negotiation happen. and then over time we will come up with an agreement similar to what happened earlier this year. a deadline, it did not really have the impact on the market that we were concerned it would. seeing the same situation. adam: i will call you an optimist. thank you for joining us. the federal reserve presidents are speaking out today after the fed no taper surprise this week. the lone dissenter on the policy-making committee, as did george among those giving speeches also sounding off was james ballard. peter barnes spoke just moments
ago. he joins us now with details. you were making headlines on this because we thought, you know, listening to analysts saying it will be months and months will we get tapir, but maybe not. >> to ask them about the next meeting which will be in october and whether or not and the fed could now tapir. another meeting in december after that. he said, well, you know, october is all live meeting. we could have a press conference if it wants to. well, what kind of numbers, economic data points would you have to see in order to start tapering in october? here is what he said. >> some revisions to past data. strong jobs reports. some indication of third quarter gdp coming in. the housing markets were withstanding the higher rates, things like that, i think, could accumulate to a decision to tape -- tapir. >> very concerned about low inflation, not disinflation or
deflationary, but he is worried about low inflation, the number is running about 1%. the target for the fed is 2%. he says, i am more concerned about that. if i had to balance its, low inflation verses better numbers. he would stay with no tapering because the fed inflation is so low. adam: the stock about the issue that he brought up. no one has been talking about that. you know, the drop, the dramatic drop in asset values, but that is really the fed is terrified of. that is what you cannot get out of, and there were people who would say that the easy money policy and quantitative easing, call it what you like, has not worked appropriately because we do not have a 2% inflation rate which is what it is designed to do. >> we like a little bit of deflation -- inflation in the economy. we like our paychecks to go up. are on prices to go. but we saw a deflationary and japan. back in 2010 with the economy was still in trouble they were very worried about deflation.
that is why they did at second round of quantitative easing. this time around that is one of the reasons why they're not going back on the tapering now. they want to make sure that the economy remains strong and does not -- that there is no risk of deflationary or disinflation or low inflation. adam: good to see you here. our man at the fed, watching what goes on in washington. right now we have to watch what is going on with blackberry. nicole, you have is from someone shares are halted. >> reporter: says news pending. there is something coming which is why they help the stock, obviously to avoid volatility in a quick trade. right now the stock has halted for news pending. a couple of things. number one, it is no secret that not long ago the announced that they formed a special board committee to review of strategic alternatives. there were obviously some canadian funds backing the possibility of takeovers. microsoft dropped out of that. also, blackberry may take a
large write-down on inventory of unsold smart phones when it releases its results next week. they did announce a new phone this week, which is very, very timid and opening of a new phone i mean, most people probably don't even know that blackberry can now with the newfound. i know you mentioned this, 40 percent of the employees are in the midst of layoffs, working on deep stop cuts in order to cut the cost. last but not least, i went to vaporizes store recently. checking out. asked about blackberry. the manager of this huge stores said, listen, i would not even sell it to you. no idea what is going on with the company, and we don't even know what kind of support will have. people are not selling the funds, that is a big problem. adam: and listen to everybody, how the mighty can fall quickly. 50 percent of the smart phone market even after the launch of the iphone, but look at what has happened to them.

mike tobin is in cleveland, ohio. he spoke with dr. cosgrove earlier today, and is he pointing the finger of blame for these job cuts at the affordable care act? >> you know, that may be as strong way to put it. a number of contributing factors. $330 million for an annual budget. certainly, the implementation of the affordable care act is a significant factor, and there will be layoffs because of it. they will try to do everything possible before they got to layoffs. streamline the operation, leave vacant positions open. they will incur is 3,000 employees to take early-retirement. ultimately here at northeast ohio's largest job provider, they will have to tell people that they no longer have a job. dr. cosgrove says the soviet trend across the nation as obamacare is implemented. >> this is something that is going on all across the country. every ceo of a hospital that i have talked to is ducking a rut doing exactly the same thing.
>> now, jay carney said yesterday he did not know any significant details about the layoffs year in cleveland, but he also said there is no hard and fast evidence saying the implementation of the affordable care act is resulting in job loss. we see disagreement with that here. dr. cosgrove says ultimately with obamacare you don't do anything to reduce the cost of running a hospital where treating patients. what happens is you get less reimbursement from medicare, medicaid, private insurers, and something has to get. back to you. adam: the u.s. health care sector seeing more slashed budgets it -- budgets and layyffs? joining us now in a fox business exclusive from philadelphia, the chairman and ceo of universal health services. thank you very much for joining us. i have to ask you. it seems hard not to draw the link between obamacare and these layoffs in cleveland. i have friends who will get hit by these layoffs. they are on the chopping block

what is happening. i think in the short run a lot of hospitals, the cleveland clinic, the will of a problem because they are not seen the increase in business that they had anticipated. so they are going to have to cut back. i operate very efficiently. adam: you have to undergo 18 facilities got 36 states. when he talks but the cleveland clinic's and is let out there some people who would say these would have come with or without obamacare. university hospitals in cleveland, literally two blocks away. they cut a hundred million from their budget, but they have no layoffs. not familiar with the financials i really cannot comment supposed to start registering october 1st.
suppose to start being covered, implemented on january 1st. adam: that's okay. if that's not coming down i don't see a situation in which cleveland where the wager even the universal health services can go forward to provide the level of health care we have now. after layer after layer of in the future. >> they are anticipating increases in volume. we have not seen it yet. the economy is not good. people are not working to the level, the number that they should be. so we are seeing that, being pressure from that. we are looking forward to the increase in access, the 31 million people. up to this point they have not been able to pay their bills. they still is a comic of the
hospital, they still get injured. retrieved them, and it is a bad bet. having 31 million people plus, we are very big in the mental health business. 200 facilities. mental health coverage is increased under obamacare. we're looking forward to that as well. it is very uneven. obviously the implementation is not going very smoothly up to this point. adam: universal health services chairman. the company is expecting of net operating loss of russell hundred $40 million. i don't know if we have nicole
