1:00 pm
could he be right again this time? adam: cash crunch at the u.s. post office, we know money is tight, but how bad are things today? we will ask the man in charge. postmaster general and ceo of the u.s. postal service joins us in an interview you will only see here on fox business. lori: it is a basketball court, no, a soccer field? an up close look at state-of-the-art stadium and big bucks behind stores, sports arenas all across the country. adam: we are seeing some solid gains on wall street, are we getting some moment, with what is happening tomorrow with twitter? nicole: that stadium looks cool. the stock market looks pretty good. we are waiting on twitter. the dow jones industrials up 97 points at the moment up more than a half of 1%. as we hit new record all-time
1:01 pm
highs. right now down, tech heavy nasdaq down and the s&p 500-1767, a gain of one quarter of 1%. the momentum remains to the upside. tomorrow we are hearing a lot of momentum. i don't want to miss it, talk about it. 4.5%, $179 per share even now. it really is a standout as far as retailers. abercrombie and fitch under significant pressure. a forecast for the holidays that looks really good, so that is the good news and the latest quarter. also numbers coming in significantly. you can see the stock really reflecting that. back to you. lori: thank you, nicole. my first guest says he is not
1:02 pm
buying shares. founder of the marketing stream that runs paid search ad campaigns for thousands of companies. you have done research on the effectiveness of online advertising and so fa for you fd concern of twitters platform. do tell. >> thank you, lori. i want to point out that twitter is far and away behind in terms of the ad platform capabilities in comparison to her facebook was a year ago when they went public. you have a situation looks like the market is willing to pay a very high premium on twitter essentially an advertising company as far as the revenues are concerned, and yet there seems to be a bit of a disconnect here because what we're seeing in terms of on the ground, finding it very challenging for direct response marketers to generate positive return on investment on the twitter campaign. lori: how far behind his twitter and what does the company need to do for advertising revenue?
1:03 pm
>> absolutely. a lot of the ad options on twitter are both generating engagement on twitter. favorites, followers, this is great for big brand advertisers looking to generate air cover for their campaign. the value is a little bit more murky for direct response marketers or e-commerce. i think the key to improving the situation has to do with generating better ad formats as well as more precise targeting and tracking capabilities which for marketers to have a better sense of return on investment. lori: twitters ads are right there in the timeline where facebook is kind of on the sidebar. sometimes almost embarrassed to admit this, the ad has hit my
1:04 pm
newsfeed because it is right there and the promoted sign is in the corner of that. that organic implementation of ads has to be worth something. if you look at the trajectory of aonline advertising growth. look at the growth report. >> you're correct to point out twitter ads are for more likely to be clicked on then facebook ads for the permanent edition. in direct response marketing is not just about getting a click, but generating, getting us to convert into a sale or a lead. where twitter is falling down is the intent is not in those clicks, sleigh are not turning to sales like customers and leads like other platforms. lori: would you write a snappier hoax, somehow incentivize a user
1:05 pm
to click on that ad, what is your advice for twitter? >> twitter seems to be a better platform for softer sales. promoting some content you have created or it doesn't seem to be like it is not search marketing where you are clearly looking for something at that moment. just improving ad targeting capabilities will help a great deal. lori: you sold ads online for thousands of companies, so what are the most profitable for the companies you represent? what works the best? >> if you are looking do direct response marketing, it seems the intent is the strongest in terms of search advertising because you are connecting with the right person at the right time. a close second has to do with remarketing or retargeting.
1:06 pm
the display ads maybe you search for a product and later on you are browsing fox business news and you see an ad for that product. very effective. lori: thank you for that example. talk to you soon. adam: despite the dow hitting an all-time new high, billion investmeninvestor warren buffets flashing signals. what kind of a warning? >> warren buffett has been giving speeches about the market signal since the '90s saying the market value of the wilshire 5000 stock index should not be more than u.s. gdp. it has been flashing this signal since march. the market cap at about 18.8 trillion, u.s. gdp is 16.7 trillion. this signal calls the bottom in '82. he used it to call the market
1:07 pm
top in 1999 and called the market top in 2007. this is essentially like a big macro total price, total sales of the u.s. economy. so the fact that hit this signal in march, you wonder whether or not the stock market is in the late stages of a rally. lori: where does this fallout in terms of where others are looking at? >> look at how it performed when it called the market downturn. what they saw in '99 is the market went up and got wiped out by march of 2000. the market continued to go up, and then got wiped out in 2008, so the name of the game is for-profit coming in strong it at a price. cutting into workforce, how long can you do that move, continue to cut, when the economy grows you have to add to it, compressing profit margin.
1:08 pm
adam: people have been calling for a real correction since january 1 and it still hasn't happened. is he getting caught up in that as well? >> he is saying this is a value indicator. he is a long-term investor, right? we know only twice before the last couple of decades it accurately called a market top in '99 and '11. adam: thank you. lori: it is still fun. it is not merely its search for a new ceo. cutting a list of candidates down to eight. ford ceo and nokia ceo are still contenders. microsoft among the top gainers on the dow. more than 2% on the day.
1:09 pm
climbing 3.5% about the highest level for the company since 2000, in fact. adam: arose biggest coffee chains that it'll hire at least 10,000 veterans and spouse of active military people over the next five years ahead of the holiday. five new existing u.s. starbucks honored near military bases will share a portion of each sale with nonprofit organizations reenter the workforce. lori: so political. adam: nothing wrong with what he will do on that. lori: u.s. postal service trying its best to get into the holiday spirit. the financial situation threatens to burn down the house. the postmaster general patrick donahoe will be here. adam: tesla quarterly report not enough to win over investors.

1:14 pm
something else, that was here in new york. big business wanted seven new casinos opening in new york state. open to this point in the state of new york you have to go to a racetrack casino combo. now you will have freestanding casinos happening in new york state. now let's see what did not make it last night. this is genetically modified labeling. this was a fail at the ballot box. a win for big business. you had companies that thought t this. they spent $20 million to make sure genetically modified ingredients in a food comment will not be on that label. that would have cost of companies millions. and then, the other funding that happened in colorado last night. 11 counties in colorado that wanted to succeed from
1:15 pm
united states of america become the 51st state. they wanted to call it north colorado. initiative started, this movement if you will because these counties sayywe are not in denver but you are ignoring our issues, they'd did make the petition fail in that county. so what was interesting about last night is very different states are looking at very different initiatives, but that will be a big revenue driver for the state of colorado. now we have got it. lori: at least it'll get taxed. thank you, cheryl. after big labor won big, we now learning health and human services department signaling plans to exempt some unions and businesses with the levy according to dow jones, propose exempting certain self-assured,
1:16 pm
self-administered plans from the temporary reinsurance and 2015 and 2016. adam: nicole petallides is watching stocks first. tesla was opposed to be a beat on the earnings by investors don't like what they see. >> a couple of things to note here. what we are seeing, a huge selloff, the biggest selloff in one day since january 2012. plenty on tesla. a lot of people who are interested in seeing the stocks go down. so they are making some money today. they did come out with their numbers for the latest quarter. the outlook going forward was just below the 6000 mark for the model s so we will see. obviously for most of the shareholders. adam: elon musk in the past has
1:17 pm

1:24 pm
imagine going back to working very hard, continuing to do amazing things for our customers. adam: we have talked about twitter, twitter, twitter. this has really been a wonderful season for ipos and going to the numbers of your company. 190 countries, 37 million registered users, you sign-up 34,000 new users per day. i would suspect people would want to get in on this. >> it is a new market, market always expanding. this is how you build your website, move your business. it is a fantastic opportunity. we are the clear market leader. it provides an amazing opportunity. adam: you're the largest operation platform on the web,
1:25 pm
but your site allows you to create the web platform but the mobile version so the users would have the mobile interface as well, is that correct? >> absolutely. this is a big challenge, more on the larger companies that you get access, a lot of time it is pretty cool. very hard to build a really good mobile site. it works with any phone, a tremendous experience. adam: now that you are publicly traded you will have the joy of analysts and reporters in all kinds of shareholders going through your earnings reports asking all kinds of questions. how o you maintain that? >> i think they maintain that by doing what we did until now. we will continue to do that by creating an amazing product, marketing those to our customers
1:26 pm
and creating a lot of volume. continuing to develop a fantastic offering for our customers we will bring fantastic results the market will like. adam: the irony of turn success to the industry all about the web creates something at a much cheaper price. and you can do it for free. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. lori: time to make a little money. shares of krispy kreme doughnuts hitting a new high. is that in opportunity? let's ask charles payne. charles: it is. trading at twice the price of the sales ratio, more than twice the price of both ratio, higher peg ratio and a bigger short position. they don't love krispy kreme, part of the reason remember the first go around when they went public comment was great but
1:27 pm
accounting problems and some in-house hijinks to be quite frank i don't think ever left the company. they missed the estimate two of the last three quarters, the stock took a dip. the growth has been phenomenal. last time sales up 10%, the net was up 15%, operating income, they got relatively no debt right now running really well, maybe they will buy back or not. franchise business doing extraordinarily well. i think it has come full circle, never had that sort of that it had before. it was like amazing, straight up. lori: i remember the debut. they were bringing investment boxes down. it was such an event. what is the story quickly with dunkin' donuts?
1:28 pm
why does everybody think they are overvalued? charles: they are. half the valuation, which is the wall street darling right now. krispy kreme has upside potential. actually said it in same-store will be significantly higher. very few people coming on board. i don't see any resistance. adam: deana who has more? charles: dunkin' donuts is inevitably bigger. maybe a starbucks or larger traditional players. adam: thank you very much get lori: thank you. the scandal and tonight justin timberlake takes the stage. so far profits are only a third of what investments expected. adam: just what are the options left for the u.s. ps?
1:29 pm
postmaster general joining us exclusively next.
1:30 pm
1:31 pm
1:32 pm
lori: as we do every 15 minutes let's check the markets. keith bliss joins us from the floor of the new york stock exchange. nice to see you with the dow up 113 points at the moment. warren buffett out with a theory, calling this a top. what is your take. >> tough to call it a top. every time we called a top we've got run over. we have less stocks making highs as we push up to all-time high levels. but we touched an all-time high on the s&p and the dow as well.
1:33 pm
market internals are weakening still support us taking it higher. we don't get overbought in the market until s&p gets up in 1805. in our work on quantitative side we see the market could move higher from here. lori: with the market at record highs you don't sound all that excited. you did there's a little bit more buying room according to your own analysis is this just, you know, a culture of another day, another new high? is the market totally disconnected from what the real economy is doing? >> we think so in some regards. it is tough to fight what is going on in the market. every time someone steps in and shorts the market they get run over. what makes us unease, despite what any model may tell you, anytime you hit an all-time high you're really in uncharted territory. you have to recalculate, recalibrate what you're doing. makes you nervous every time you do that we hope to push to new highs. i would be a little guarded in here even though our work says
1:34 pm
we could go higher. >> great analysis. keith bliss. adam: holiday season revving up and you know what that means, a ton of mail. five million pieces of mail expected to be processed by the united states postal service this holiday season. can it help the bottom line? we have the usps ceo, patrick donahoe. great to have you here. you buys face a continuing financial disaster, that was the quote. before we talk about that, let's talk about something pleasant, holiday mail. every year we get stamps and you're here in new york to talk about the stamp. >> this is new stamp this year, gingerbread stamp. did the dedication today and we're ready for the holiday season. adam: we wish you the best for holiday season. let's throw water on that. the numbers are astronomical, the united states postal service lost, what is it, $20 billion last two year.
1:35 pm
how do you get on top of this? congress is saying right this ship? when you put forth a plan people don't like, stop saturday delivery, consolidate post offices, congress says you can't do that? >> we've done a lot of things we can control ourselves already this year. as a matter of fact we closed 150 processing facilities. we eliminated about 500 delivery facilities and made big changes in 7,000 post offices from a on-time or time of day perspective. so we've been able to address those. where we need help from congress is addressing some of our long-term liabilities like retiree health benefits and six to five-day issue. adam: talk about the loss in a way i can understand it. you will lose about $6 billion this year. what happens, if you didn't have to make payments to future retiree benefits, because you're the only institution, organization in the united states that does it this way. if you were doing it way everyone else does it, what would the true loss be? >> our operating loss this will year will be about a billion
1:36 pm
dollars. put the six to five-day change in we would make a billion dollars. we would be profitable by a billion dollars. adam: do it way everyone else does it pensions would be underfunded. >> no, no, pensions very interesting. we are, you read a lot about the health care pensions. that is one. we have three pension fund. one is overfunded right now. 80 billion-dollar pension fund. it is overfunded. we have 200 billion-dollar pension fund that is 59% funded and health benefits is 50% funded but if we enat that into medicare, just like everybody else does, it reduce that is level in half and we would be fully funded. adam: why doesn't congress allow to you do that? >> we're working on that. adam: i know you will get opposition though, from he will be the new president of the u.s. postal workers union. he is starts on november 12th. he already said we need to draw a line in the sand. we're not willing to cross and that means stop the closings. stop the calls for perhaps, business they would say
1:37 pm
efficiencies. the laying off of people or at least not hiring as people retire employees. closing post offices. he says we're not going along with that. >> well he will be coming on board in a couple weeks and we'll work with him. we worked very closely with the unions. as you pointed out, we reduced headcount 320,000 in the last 10 years. 200,000 in the last five years alone. no layoffs. we know how to adjust our compliment going forward. but the key thing is forward. we know there will be changes in the marketplace the big opportunity for us is in the package delivery world. we think we will deliver packages in many zip codes seven days a week and cut back to five-day a week mail delivery. adam: he raises specter of privatization if that is a bad option. you bought up the marketplace. he points out in the criticism of management if you were to close post offices and delivery on saturday someone would pick up and do that. why would that be a bad thing? why not let fedex or united
1:38 pm
postal service get paid to do it and let them do that? >> we already proposed to deliver packages on saturday. with the volume loss in mail it would not be a good idea for anybody to jump into that business at this point in time. the volume as contracted just like any other reasonable business, we should contract the same way. but grow in the package area. adam: well, mr. donahoe, we appreciate you being here. we love, the favored whipping boy i think of the american citizen all of us look forward to something in the mailbox. >> yes. thank you adam. lori: that's funny. you're my favorite whipping boy. adam: yes, i'm glad you acknowledged that she hasn't punched me today but that's all right. lori: for scrooge this holiday season, fox business senior correspondent charlie gasparino is here next with the outlook for banker bonuses. adam: a hammer comes down but dealers are unable to shout sold for some of the most prized pieces. we'll explain why. ♪ ♪

1:42 pm
adam: big banks offering a mixed picture on bonus this year rather than the bloodbath a lot of people expected. charlie gasparino is here with the latest details on who is winning and who is losing. but first, charlie, any word on the much anticipated jpmorgan settlement? >> what we here is that the deal
1:43 pm
is not inked. i want to make clear it is not inked but we what hear it is largely completed. this thing is all but a done deal. people close to jpmorgan tell us they're waiting for the justice department to leak the story when it's going to come. it could come later this week. it could come monday. my guess is they hyped of like to space these things out. they did the sac settlement, u.s. attorney for the so you were district preet bharara did that monday. if i was to bet, i would bet they do this next week, mon or tuesday. this thing, from what i understand, final terms that are just about there, $13 billion deal. largely what you're reading in the press. i don't think there is any sort of surprises from what i understand right now but this thing is just about done. jpmorgan knows despite the little hiccups it had they had to come to the table and the justice department is driving the show here. watch it next couple days. from what i understand this thing is done. adam: let's get to the other hiccup, bonus season.
1:44 pm
>> there are mixed reports out there that bonuses are going to be crushed. i don't discount or doubt those reports other than this. we've been putting calls into bankers at the major firms. we're talking to analysts the last couple days. here is what we hear, much more mixed. it may be 20% aggreeate down but if you look at sort of in the whole it will be mixed. places like jpmorgan, goldman sachs, they will be at what they were last year or maybe slightly lower. adam: were they records last year? >> they were pretty high. but based on revenues, remember this is all based on revenues and profits, and percentage of revenues. 30% of the revenues go to compensation. based on revenue pictures right now, it will be probably about stable or, little lower, not going to be the massive decline that you've been reading in the aggregate, which is something like 20%. that is for banks like that. there are banks out there obviously getting smaller. credit suisse is betting smaller. barclays huge bank, getting smaller. those banks will take highest and biggest hits. from what we understand, sources
1:45 pm
inside barclays telling fox business network, bankers are expecting bonus pools to decline as much as 30%. that's a pretty big deal and the reason why these are shrinking banks. these are banks maybe not exiting the entire business but they're clearly not growing. adam: are you hearing anything, this is just occurred to me, with mayor deblasio coming into new york city, any chance some banks may decide, you know what? may be time to put more cash in pockets of employees as we go forward everybody is expecting tax increases. >> mayor deblasio is most liberal mayor they have had and more liberal than david dinkins. i covered the dinkins administration when i was at other publications. it generally doesn't work that way. adam: okay. >> i think, first off we should point out, mayor deblasio when he becomes mayor officially in january and inaugurated taking over from bloomberg, wants to increase city income taxes on -- adam: people $500,000 and above. >> in order to increase the city
1:46 pm
income tax and get approval of state legislature and governor. i don't think that will happen. he will have to figure out other taxes. adam: but bonuses as you say, if it is not quite the bloodbath, cuts people are anticipating, it gives him ammunition to continue class warfare to new york argument. >> i'm sure. we're in uncharted territory. never before has new york, listen, i think deblasio, i always refrained from calling president obama a socialist because he is not a socialist. if he was a socialist he would have nationalized banks and kept automobile companies. say what you want about president obama he is not a socialist. deblasio, i don't know because someone that actually went to, give aid and comfort to nicaraguans and you don't sort of say, that was a yuleful indiscretion, you don't back away from that, seems to embrace that particularly with rhetoric. whole campaign, sorry to get off on a tangent, his whole campaign was based on a false premise
1:47 pm
somehow new york city, which you pay high income taxes, that people get welfare here -- wealthier fairly large numbers,. adam: large social safety net. >> take pieces out of welfare state that is land of inequality. this is false premise. can't tell where he is going. he is lucky that anthony weiner ran. if anthony weiner did not run and so fixated on anthony weiner being the perv he is, guess what? we would have paid more intention how insane this guy's politics are. adam: we'll move on. charlie, thanks very much. people breatheing a sigh of relief expecting bonuses. >> absolutely. thank you. lori: markets on a tear as you know. get check on the markets from nicole petallides on floor of new york stock exchange. >> we're hearing after the bell from both activision and qualcomm. we'll see how they're faring ahead of their earnings. what is interesting about activism, when kids at home say
1:48 pm
cod, they are not talking about fish but call of duty. one of the most famous names in videogames. call the duty videogame surpassed one billion dollars in retail sales the day after its launch. they have sky landers games done very well. watch them going into the closing he will. qualcomm great indicator for the smartphone market because they make chips for smartphones. back to you. lori: thanks for telling the whole story. thanks, nicole. adam: tough night for christie's the reknowned auction house kicked off fall season with a poor start, one quarter of the impressionist and paintings up for auction went unsold. sales for the new york auction were estimated to reach $118 million. finished far below the mark at 144 million. some keeping eye on auction and high valuations and mixed quality seemed to keep potential buyers on the sideline.
1:49 pm
this was second consecutive night of lackluster sales of christie's after a weak night of auctioning on monday. no truth to the rumor the bargain basement paintings will be on ebay. bad joke. lori: private money pouring into fund new stadiums when struggling municipalities can not. adam: so far mixed results. the scorecard for some of the biggest arenas in the country next. ♪ ♪ [ bell ringing, applause ] five tech stocks with more than a 10%... change in after-market trading. ♪ all the tech stocks with a market cap... of at least 50 billion... are up on the day. 12 low-volume stocks... breaking into 52-week highs. six upcoming earnings plays... that recently gapped up.

islanders and home of miley cyrus's vma twerking scandal. why is this not turning a bigger profit for the barclay? is this signaling trouble for other stadiums? he has written about this as executive editor at "forbes" magazine. great to have you. >> great to be here, lori. lori: it is only on track for something like 25 million. what's the problem? >> well it's a little behind in terms of sponsorships but i think when you look at the loss figure that you cited i think it is because it costs a lot of money to pay off the debt that was used to finance the arena. costs over $50 million a year to pay the financing costs and the operating costs of the arena. first six months of this year there is a 6 million-dollar loss at the arena. but that said, we got to look at this. also as a means of increasing the value of the nets. the value of the nets have gone from $300 million with bruce
1:54 pm
rattner paid for the team to probably in the neighborhood of 6, $700 million. so there is a side asset here that it is increasing in value. lori: sure. talk about the structure of financing these new arenas and big renovations as well. we're understanding the shift from public funding to private funding. tell me about that and what other arenas besides barclays are doing it that way. >> that is exactly right. if you stay here in new york, these buy lot bonds -- pilot bonds, payment in lou of taxes. those type of bonds were used for mets, citi field, new york yankees, and new yankees stadium. you exactly right about the shift. i think the big change to no longer where you see the bulk of stadium financing come from the public with the marlins new ballpark two years ago. that was finance almost exclusively with tax dollars, yet when the team started to falter, the team owner took apart the team, traded away jose
1:55 pm
reyez, attendance plummeted, big problems. you will see at least 50/50 partnerships, what they're talking about with a new football stadium in atlanta. this is what is happening with the new football stadium in minnesota. the new football stadium in 49ers is almost all private money. this is way it is going. lori: doesn't private money behoove investors than sports fan? you took example of jose reyez moving from the team because they couldn't afford him, correct. >> correct. interest rates are certainly somewhat high but you got to remember those revenues are secured by sponsorships. they're secured by rentals of the suites and other premium seating. you don't know. it is a little bit of a gamble based on how the attendance goes. compare the yankees with the mets. the yankees are drawing over 50, excuse me an average of 40,000 a game. the mets are about 26,000 a game. so certainly the mets are a little bit riskier. lori: the finances of cities themselves, you mentioned plot,
1:56 pm
mo property taxes. do cities get revenue from mostly privately-funded stadium ventures? >> they et revenue from ticket sales and concession sales and things like that. but they also own the building. the owners, sports teams have the operating rights but the city actually owns the building on these pilot financings. lori: mike, i really enjoy your writing at forbes. >> thank you so much. lori: we'll have you back again soon. >> thank you, lori. adam: the key to twitter's success, getting advertisers away from facebook. it is the social media darling's biggest obstacle. if they overcome it, we have martin hykenen from wedge partners. he says twitter's opportunities are endless. he will join tracy and me on the next hour of "markets now." so i can reach ally bank 24/7, but there are no branches? 24/7. i'm sorry, i'm just really reluctant to try new things.

2:01 pm
the exchange. up 115, good day, nicole. >> we really improved with the markets. dow jones industrials as you noted, 115 points to the upside, and s&p up one-third of 1% at 1769. we're watching the dow hit a record high. s&p 500 may have a record close. we'll see if that happens. nasdaq down 10 points. dow components, hitting new highs, proctor & gamble, 3m and boeing, and consumer names and industrial names. you do have four dow components with new highs. let's look at jcpenney a name that really staged somewhat of a comeback since october. however still under a lot of scrutiny, down 5% at the moment, $7.89 a share. there are continued worries about the turn around plan they have been working on. we'll see how they do for the holiday season. they will be opening thanksgiving and black friday
2:02 pm
and the like. analysts out there on wall street even denoting they're concerned about a turn around. bankruptcy court could be looming. you do have a lot of people that are still very wary of jcpenney's big turn around plans. we'll see, but for today, down 5%. back to you. adam: nicole, thank you. unacceptable, that is what kathleen sebelius told congress this morning about obamacare. >> in the last five weeks, access to, has been a miserably frustrating experience for far too many of these americans. it is unacceptable. i am focused on fixing it and i am accountable. >> senator mike crapo is a member of the finance committee. he joins me now in an exclusive interview and, senator, you propose ad timeout to the senator to, to the senate investigating premiums and other failures regarding the law. what was her response and were you satisfied? >> well, as you have indicated she did take responsibility for
2:03 pm
the failure of the website. my point to her was, that the website needs to be fixed, yes, but we've got to recognize the rollout of obamacare is having a lot of unintended or frankly i think intended consequences we've been talking about. millions of people are seeing their insurance canceled, they can't keep their own doctor as promised, the promised reduction in health care benefits or health care premiums not only evaporated but skyrocketing premiums in the individual market. frankly now the obamacare taxes are slamming the middle class, which was also promised would not happen. so i've suggested we simply need to take a timeout. stop the individual mandate, take time to fix the website but also go look to try to repair some of these incredibly difficult problems we're seeing develop in the health care insurance market. adam: let's break this down bit by built. the administration would counter, critics who point out
2:04 pm
what is clear to everybody, that 3.5 to 7 million americans will have, the current insurance plan they may like and want to keep, they will have that canceled. what the administration is saying yes, that is being canceled but you're geting a better option. why is that counter from the administration not valid or is it valid? >> it is valid in some cases but even in the cases where it's valid that so-called better option is coming at an explosive price. the administration says that health care premiums are coming down. that is not, i think comparing apples to apples. what we are seeing in the individual market is that for those who can get a health care policy, even after the policy is getting canceled, that policy costs far more than ever projected to cost before the bill was passed. >> let me ask you about cost portion. in massachusetts the model. health care costs have not come
2:05 pm
down. they pay the most per person in the country on health care. in the united states we go forward with obamacare. they don't have young people signing up. they are takeing a $95 penalty as opposed to paying higher premiums. that create what is they call a death spiral. older, less healthy folks signing up but not supported by younger, healthy folk paying into the system. potentially it collapses. what do you do? >> you described it perfectly. this is what we talked about when debating the bill. we're seeing it happen now. those who are younger are not just going to pay all these higher costs for no benefit. those who are older are moving into a system that is being undercut by the failure of the economics of the plan and the death spiral is exactly what we are seeing start right now. although the administration points to a lot of individual stories about people who are able to get health care, and there are people who are able to get health care with the exchange subsidies, the fact is that the impact as that rolls
2:06 pm
through the individual market, from young people through middle-aged people to the elderly is going to have devastating economic impact. adam: senator, do we get the administration saying in perhaps a year, this isn't working, we'll just have medicare for all, one single-payer system, if you want something better you pay out of your own pocket? >> some have speculated that was intent all along. i can't tell you for sure if that was the intent. i can tell you that is where the pressure of all of this is driving. to a point where the proposal will be made, look, this isn't working, it is starting this death spiral that you've described and we've got to get out of it. the way to get out of it obviously have the government take over the control of health care or to have people who can still afford it, just pay for it out of their own pockets. that is not where america should go with the health care system. that is why i suggested today, we need a timeout. we've got to get in and start fixing more than just the website. >> senator mike crapo, we
2:07 pm
appreciate you being here. this is difficult time on capitol hill. thank you for taking time to talk to us. >> thank you. tracy: the president's health care law a key factor in the virginia governor's race with its rocky rollout nearly costing democrat terry mcauliffe the election. will obamacare rear its lucky head in future elections. should democrats on capitol hill be worried. that is the twitter question and the one we talk to a reporter for "the hill." thank you for being with us. should this be a concern for the democrats? >> oh it is a concern to democrats, there is no question about that. mcauliffe's people are pushing back on the narrative that obamacare nearly beat him in the virginia gubernatorial race. we know from top democratic campaign officials this is on their mind, particularly as federal health officials struggle to fix the broken enrollment website. this is heavy lift particularly with midterms right around the corner. i think the obama administration is quite concerned. tracy: quite frankly, give it
2:08 pm
another week or had the election would have been a week later, you never know how it would have turned out, right? it came back close with ken cuccinelli. >> cuccinelli had to quote with major gender gap. struggled to repeal to women which is perennial problem with the republican party. in northern virginia, many government contractors live there and that was particular case to him. republicans can draw two lessons from last night's election in virginia. obamacare is fertile ground for attacks on vulnerable democratic larly in purple states. no question about that. but not enough to carry republican candidates who have past troubles into success. it is not necessarily going to guaranty those wins although it could help along the way. tracy: love that purple states. speaking of women, let's talk about someone who has gotten a bun of women on this side, chris christie. 13%, sounds really lame but it's a lot, isn't it, as far as republican voters go? >> it is a lot.
2:09 pm
he also made gains among minorities and among democrats. apparently a third of democrats in new jersey backed christie which is enormous for him. and i think that this all points to 2016. the perennial question facing chris christie. tracy: the tony soprano thing doesn't work outside of our state, right? that is my concern, for him. that, rough and gruff and i don't care what you think attitude works in jersey. that is actually how you have to talk to us but the rest of the world isn't comfortable with that. >> it's true but the conservative base might be because they really go for that kind of aggressive posturing that we see among a lot of tea party republicans. so it is possible his appeal could cross over to that side. i agree with you. a lot of people are worried
2:10 pm
about personality. he comes off too aggressive and could put off women voters he attracted this time. tracy: i have to quickly bring it to new york. first time a democrat won the mayoral raisins 1989. what do you think of this election here? >> i mean it is a very interesting election and been 20 years and bill deblasio entering office with enormous vision for new york city. remains to be seen how much he can accomplish. critics and analysts wonder whether he can make a big stab in economic inequality which is what he wants to do. mayors generally don't have the power to make large economic changes. so he set a very high bar for himself and we'll have to see how he pivots from the campaign to governing because that is going to be his big challenge. tracy: excellent point. elise from "the hill." great stuff. >> thanks. tracy: we have update on a story we brought to you yesterday.
2:11 pm
we talked about this, taxing marijuana in colorado. our guest said, the voters want this. well you know what, he was right. they voted yes for recreational tax. so the statewide proposition for 15% excise tax and a 10% sales tax on pot sales beginning next year, was approved by 2/3 of the voters. he was right. several cities voted in favor of special taxes on recreational marijuana. the statewide proposition is expected to bring in nearly $70 million a year which will, is supposed to go, mostly, to school construction and regulation of pot. i say supposed to because often times that stuff doesn't happen. >> right. tracy: you know how that goes? lottery was supposed to go to education too. adam: they just replace general fund spending with lottery funds. not an extra. tracy: well, in today's tech minute, a takeover target? computer-maker acer has multiple job cuts, worse than expected earnings. ceo that is saying, has at that la vista, baby.
2:12 pm
adam: good management, good business model, good advertisers, a work in progress. coming up twitter's battle with facebook over ad dollars. >> as we do this time of day look how oil is trading. stuck above 95 bucks a barrel after weekly reports showed a smaller than expected climb in u.s. crude supplies. still really low though, $95.26 a barrel. we'll be right back.

discussion on that but financially, the input costs for businesses in the united states, we're growing to start seeing this i would imagine pretty soon? >> what is really interesting is, that the projections for the price of oil, citigroup is saying 70 to $80 a barrel in five-year's time by the end of the decade. price inputs is a big deal. the u.s. is pumping out the equivalent ever nigeria since 2008 according to this new ihs report. you know it also is widespread economic impact in terms of taxes, you know, 74 billion last year, brought back in to state and federal coffers. basically spending power of, you know, the u.s. consumer as oil continues to drop and gas prices continue to drop. tracy: amazing these guys back in '74 had this kind of foresight we could get here some day. what happened in between? adam: fracking. fracking is what happened. tracy: what happened? we were so close? >> now you have the imf and goldman sachs i saying you know

2:34 pm
fed. the papers presented a manifesto for monetary policy activism, he says. the lindsey group says the paper signals the fed could dial back its $85 billion a month of quantitative easing bond purchases but keeping of a fed funds lower for longer would be the fed's carrot to go with the stick but cut in quantitative easing. one economist thinks the papers could give ammunition to critics of janet yellen who don't like her dog vicious as the senate prepares to consider nomination as fed chair. >> this is not some issues she wanted raised now, this will complicate the process of trying to get her appointed as fed chairman. this is a very important debate and of the gutted is not clear they want to have it right now. >> ben bernanke and the minutes of the fed meeting have said the

ten years ago. the start of the with three quarters of revenue from the united states hit tweet 3-quarters of users of various types were outside the united states. google is 50/50 and facebook moving toward that. twitter over time will lead toward and five years, maybe a little more from now, twitter will be close to equal from foreign markets in terms of revenue. the maturation of the market. tracy: does it bother you that the kids aren't using it? you follow the teenagers, right? they have moved on. even facebook 9 yes saying they are done with it. does that worry you? >> not really. we're talking mostly twitter but there has been a sort of concern about teenagers moving off the facebook needs group has moved up, in a lot of cases the target market for the advertisers. twitters a little bit generalized to say a more serious application usage but generally the age population is older. people use it for a variety of
