6:04 am
maria: we have a lot on tab, we have to get comments, coming up this morning, ed rollins is with us, republican sean duffy is with us, evander holyfield making appearance today. former milwaukee county sheriff super pac david clarke is here and michelle malkin with us this morning. you don't want to miss a moment of it. get to breaking news right away. overnight, five people dead in méxico, this morning after the biggest earthquake in a century strikes the country. the massive 8.1 magnitude earthquake hit coast hours ago sending tsunami awes that could reach hawaii and california, incredible. the country's army, marines and federal police are responding to this catastrophe right now. the quack left 800,000 people in
6:05 am
the dark. méxico's west coast is facing heavy rains from hurricane katia, to the east. i want to bring chief meteorologist, joe, your reaction to this catastrophe. >> we are talking about the hurricanes is what i can deal with, i'm not so good as earthquakes. katia is going to go into méxico and winds close to 100 miles an hour when it does tomorrow. of course, irma is what everybody is watching and the storm is behaving very well so far, we forecasted it yesterday a week into a four and come back to a 5. i cannot overemphasize that the parameters for intensification as this is coming to florida coast are all there, this is opposite of katrina and rita, remember, both of those were 5's and fell to 3, this is 5, fell
6:06 am
to 4 and coming back to 5 tomorrow and the current track that we have takes it across the upper florida keys and this could cut florida keys complete my. the last time a storm this strong went into the florida keys it looks to me was 1935. that's a legendary hurricane, blew trains off the track, i cannot overemphasize how bad the storm is. for the east coast of florida, there's a glimmer of light here in that the storm is shifting west, the path looks like it's shifting west, however, that means that naples, fort myers, it will be as bad as we have seen hurricanes in florida and rival some of the storms, 1935 to 1940's, great miami hurricane in 1926, all the storms, it's almost incomprehensible as to how much
6:07 am
damage they did and yet if you look back at it you see that this storm is sort of old school, throwback to the past and here it comes. maria: but hurricane irma is now responsible for at least 14 deaths as it bears down on florida, it's been downgraded down to category 4 storm but tell us what you're expecting this weekend when irma actually makes landfall in florida. >> i expect this thing to come back to 5. i don't think it's reached the lower pressure yet. that went down to 914milibars. and so what this essentially means is that people should not say to themselves, oh, it's a 4, it's coming down, a 4 is a destructive storm, this is
6:08 am
coming back and this is probably going to be top two or three storms to ever hit florida. i can't say it any differently. there's not much else to say except we have to try to nail the exact track and it rooks like it's a little bit further west than yesterday at this time. maria: are you impacted if you're all the way inland, joe, real quick? >> it'll be a 2 all the way up to orlando and i've never seen a storm inland that far at orlando at category 2 or 3, it'll finally become a tropical storm in georgia and rain itself out next week not as bad as harvey over the southern united states. maria: joe, thank you. with the latest, we got to get fox news reporter julian, live in miami where evacuations are underway. julian. >> that's right, good morning, maria, good morning you at home as well. this has been a problem in miami for days, gas shortage. everywhere you turn it seems like gas stations have bags over
6:09 am
pumps like this one right here but at least this station we are at has a good situation because you have some pump that is don't have gas but others that do have gas and people are waiting in line to fuel up pretty much at any hour of the day. it's 6:00 o'clock in the morning and we have a line of a couple of cars here. we will tell you we actually sat in line for about an hour to get gas ourselves yesterday, we did pay about 20 cents cheaper than the station we are at right now. we noticed the difference in price as you traveled around town. we are not the only ones who noticed, take a listen to pam bondi. >> you cannot inflate crisis during time of hurricane for essential commodities, we noticed we had about 45 complaints against chevron gas station, chevron, if you're watching mel right now, you need to call us and tell us why your prices are inflated in south florida. >> so here is the deal, you're looking 2.89 at the station near the airport, 20 cents less
6:10 am
yesterday. we noticed the average was 2.77 in this area. maria, i'm not going to come on here and say that this company is price gouging, i am i am goie tell you this is the most expensive gas we have seen in two days down here in miami so far. that being said, you notice people waiting in line to get gas at this point they just need to fill up, that's the situation live in miami as i send it back to you. maria: it's scary because if you haven't evacuated yet you may not be able to because you don't have any gas, julian, thank you. >> right. maria: joining us this morning in miami. bipartisan deal between president trump and democrats to fund harvey disaster relief lifts the ceiling and keeps government funded and running headed for house today, easily pass 80 to 17, despite republicans misgivings president is open to making more deals with the democrats.
6:11 am
>> i think it does. i think we will have a different relationship than you've been watching over the last number of years. i hope so. i think that's a great thing for our country and i think that's what the people of the united states want to see. they want to see some dialogue. they want to see coming together to an extent at least. maria: well, we've got dialogue, caitlin. the republicans say that they were basically blindsided, the democrats cheering agreement and they think it will give them leverage come december. >> sure, i would have loved to be a fly on the wall when democrats were thinking, oh, wow, you actually agreed to what we are saying. remember, this is a president who ran against the republican party as much as he did the democratic party, very antiestablishment, let's do things differently, certainly kind of steam rolled republican relationship but that's the way he campaigned and so there are
6:12 am
criticisms about what he gets from this deal and democrats are thinking, now they have leverage moving into the big fights coming in december, the key thing on these kinds of bills, they need democrat support and you will see democrats push the bill through today. what this means though, moving forward, i think it's really too early to tell, yes, they cut a deal with democrats this time, i don't know if they're going to be able to do this again. maria: does this impair tax reform? we are all talking about tax reform, does this hurt after year end? >> i don't think so, now we are looking at president trump who is saying, i'm willing to give a little, you guys need to be willing to compromise and the american people have in large part said, listen, we want you to get things done so i think it could be encouraging move for the president. kevin: i don't know why we are using tax reform. the president has stopped using,
6:13 am
exactly, even in his tweets, tax reform will take a long time. there's a lot of special interest including democratic interests that they would need to get in there as well. tax cuts, yes, i could see that getting done specially because they want to come to the table and win, the democrats. maria: here is what steven mnuchin told us yesterday about what to expect. >> we have a path to get this done this year and we are hopeful to get it done. maria: would you be happy with just cutting taxes? >> maria, i think we've set our objective is to do comprehensive tax reform. it hasn't been done in 31 years, that's our objective and that's what we are trying to do. maria: does the plan need to be deficit neutral? >> maria, we have said all along that we are focused on the size of the debt has grown from 10 trillion to 20 trillion, we want to be financially responsible but we have been very clear that we believe we
6:14 am
can get to 3% gdp that will add trillions of dollars of revenues so the discussion is clearly under our projections this will absolutely be revenue neutral. maria: so what does that mean, revenue neutral? border adjustment tax is off the table, how does it become revenue neutral? kevin: that means it's not going to get done this year. maria: just tax cuts? >> correct. maria: i think it will get done. >> more discipline from the administration on messaging. i'm encouraged. >> tax relief as the president has been saying in these tours that he's been doing across the country, i think that's more realistic. you're right, republicans need a victory here and i think they're very focused on that. maria: i think you're right about tax cuts as opposed to tax reform. lots to talk about this morning, stay was, breaking news next. back in a minute

maria: let's check market this is friday morning, we are looking at selling underway, dow industrials really at the lows to have morning with decline about 65 points on the dow jones industrial average. nasdaq also down a quarter of percent. 11 points lower, this morning political uncertainty in washington and all weighing on investors, joining us right now s&p global market, richard peterson. rich, thank you for joining us. >> great to be here. >> breaking out or breaking down, we saw in tight band right
6:23 am
now, i think, in terms of the s&p, we are really looking at the yield curve, back at start august 10-year yield was 225, ended 212, now we are approaching having one handle. maria: we don't know the strength of the hurricanes and how that's going time pact. kevin kelly makes amazing point during the point and that is about texas and florida. kevin: giant infrastructure. we got a 3% gdp and also just saw the earnings recession and earnings are finally growing, companies are doing well, business travels -- maria: now this. kevin: we have seen when there's been storms not as severe impact specially in the winter, how has past storms impacted the warnings and what do you think that's going to be in guidance going forward? maria: texas and florida. kevin: largest parts of our economy are right there in
6:24 am
infrastructure. think about the gulf of mexico and all the energy that goes in there. we just started exporting 1 million-barrels of day overseas. >> we have seen some states have gasoline prices spike 25, 30 cents per gallon. so maybe a hit, not only on texas and florida but nationwide in terms of consumers paying more for gasoline, from investment standpoint, if you look what happened post katrina 2005 and one-year, s&p 500 property and cash and there was bump there. my concern is to the degree -- infrastructure, how damage it is. spike in claims which -- maria: we don't know that and we are not going get that info for a week or so at least in terms of the real damage? >> that's correct. again, you know, it maybe a boom in terms of recovery because
6:25 am
there will be a recovery. they'll be demand for plywood, materials, demand for lumber going forward and demand for labor. kevin: you see home depot do exceptionally well. we see the euro at two-year high and the dollar come down and that has helped s&p 500. what's your thoughts on that going forward? could that hurt us going further if the stronger is weaker? >> yield is being soft, affecting regional bank, bank stocks have been under pressure because they really thrive where the curve is more steeper. i think, you know, the issue really is -- maria: the euro is up big this year. >> if you look, there's been such a slow amount of foreign buying in the u.s. maria: part of it because of currency? >> in part. a year ago 30% of dollar value
6:26 am
came from foreign buying, now about 18%. so the slowest level of foreign buying in the u.s. since 2013. maria: we are starting to see get guidance in terms of the third quarter. we had a good first quarter and good second quarter, what are you expecting -- >> s&p, 6.7% on percentage basis, energy is going to be the big gainer over 100%. that's going to come from lower base. you get the big other areas, information technology over 10%, financials and materials. maria: energy and information technology. [laughter] >> a theme there. kevin: those are the largest companies, you look at top five market cap, it's apple, microsoft, it's google, alphabet, you think about that and it's over -- around 25% of the market cap of the entire market. >> if you look at russell 2000 many under pressure, small caps.
6:27 am
maria: in terms of the rest of the year, 3% gdp that kevin mentioned, do you think that's sustainable? it wouldn't be an overall consistency, i wonder what you thought. >> you look at auto sales, running higher rates a year ago, almost 14 million sale rate earlier this year, now 12.5. you may see a bump up in oil fields in fourth quarter to replace damage that is the hurricanes -- maria: that's typical, 14 million versus 12 million vehicles. >> concern that lenders in terms of auto sales are more laxed and could fear subprime coming into no prime. kevin: giving a lot of incentives. maria: the near-term issue is the hurricanes.
6:28 am
>> another top toik take into consideration about insurers, texas state passed allow that became effective september 1, limits consumer lawsuits against insurance companies for claims related to national disasters. maria: all right, great insight from you. rich peterson. massive security breach to report, details on equifax that could affect nearly half of all americans, are you on that list? back in a minute. copd makes it hard to breathe.

6:31 am
maria: welcome back, good friday morning, i'm maria bartiromo, it is friday september 8th, your stop stories right now 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. breaking news to report overnight. massive earthquake struck méxico, 8.1 magnitude quack hit the southern coast overnight just hours ago, in fact, setting off tsunami waves and aftershocks, strongest earthquake to hit the region in more than 100 years. hurricane irma meanwhile barreling toward florida as we speak. mass evacuations underway throughout the state after the storm wrecked havoc throughout the caribbean. >> we are working very hard and tremendous group of talented people there, the people of florida are like the people of texas, louisiana, you have seen how the people of our country have reacted under tremendous pressure. now it's just a question of what
6:32 am
happens. maria: very latest from the ground as citizens are rushing to the airport right now for last-minute flights and struggling to find gasoline, by the way, and gas prices arising across the country. the personal data of nearly half of the country may have been exposed. this is an enormous story, what you need to know after hackers possibly gained access to your social security number, your birth date after credit reporting agency ebbing fasm was -- equifax. alexa playing match-maker. teams up with e-harmony to help you find love. third of a percent lower, in europe, also selling underway, take a look at major averages

there with ftse down a third of a percent. cac quarante in paris down a third of a percent and dax inexdown a fraction. in asia overnight markets were mostly lower with the exception of hong kong which squeaked out a half a percent gain. back to florida we go. bracing for hurricane irma, still substantial storm, obviously, it could make direct hit to miami and florida keys this weekend. roughly half a million people told to evacuate and irma is triggering life-threatening storm surge warnings, fox news griff jenkins is in key largo right now. what can you tell us? >> well, maria, good morning, it's the first sign of rain here and certainly ghost town and as you mentioned the storm surge, that is certainly as much as the wind a concern for the keys, as you can see it's low-lying in key largo, you may see a few
6:34 am
cars getting out, but by in large the highways are empty but the storm surge, the connection of bridges, the connection of keys is low-lying, they are predicting 10 feet of storm surge and that would absolutely isolate the keys in what is expected here and unhabitable according to officials for weeks if not months. monroe county, that's where this is in key largo, monroe county's administrator roman says, you better get out and if you stay don't call 9-1-1 because no one is coming for you. take a listen. >> it's very dangerous, specially the storm surge, we will not come save you, if you stay down here if you're listening, you're on your own. don't even dial 911 because nobody is going to answer. >> in downgrade to category 4, it's a bit misleading because there's still going to be 150-mile an hour, category 5, winds of that nature, a storm of
6:35 am
this size, really has never hit the keys in this area, they are bracing here and most people are getting out less than 5% of residents remain, maria. maria: griff, even though this hurricane was downgraded from category 5 to 4, it doesn't feel like it's much different. >> not at all. we talk today a resident who is just leaving, you're not going to hold out? i thought i was going to but i almost died in hurricane andrew and it looks like this is going to be stronger and she's heading to the road and heading to tampa. maria: thank you, griff jenkins on the ground in the keys, your personal information possibly at risk, equifax targeted by cyber-attack affecting half of the u.s.' population. tracee carrasco with the detailings in washington. tracee. tracee: good morning, maria, equifax is one of the largest agencies in the united states that many people use to guard against identity theft but now
6:36 am
143 million customers are being placed in compromising position with private information in the hands of cyber criminals. although we are just hearing about this now equifax says the massive breach was discovered on july 29th, sensitive information such as social security numbers, birthdays, addresses and even driver licensee numbers. however, equifax says it's core credit card reporting database was not affected. the hackers gained access to certain files in the company's system from mid-may to july by exploiting a weak point in website software that's according to investigation by equifax and security consultants. even if you don't think you're a customer of equifax, there's still a strong possibility they have your data as credit card reporting agency equifax gets information from credit card
6:37 am
companies, banks, lenders and retailers to help it determine a person's credit score. now, in a video message to customers here is what chairman and ceo richard smith said. >> clearly a disappointing event. i deeply regret this incident. i apologize to every affected consumer and all of our partners. tracee: equifax is offering every consumer in the united states a comprehensive package of identity theft protection and credit card monitoring for free to enroll, visit www.equifax check your credit cards and other accounts for suspicious activity, change your passwords and also be careful opening any
6:38 am
questionable emails that claim to be updates from equifax or about the breach. now, maria, i reached out to equifax to ask how many people affected in the data breach may have been given free membership or retailers that experienced own security breaches but a spokesperson would not answer my question. maria: i think you bring up a really good point, tracee, because we were just talking about this during the commercial break, when there was a breach recently equifax comes to you and says, sorry about the breach, here is a free account. >> exactly. maria: because of that they exposed themselves because they got free account to equifax. tracee: people turning for protection are now caught up in all of this. maria: tracee, thank you. i want to bring cybersecurity expert. robert, thanks for joining us. what about that? how can victims of equifax this breach help themselves and what about the angle that many of these people didn't want to be part of equifax's portfolio and
6:39 am
they were given free accounts? >> yeah, this is just messy all around. the fact that their domain is equifax security, it should be equifax failed. they messed up big time here. consumers at a loss. they cannot rely at government agencies or corporations to protect them from identity theft. the responsibility relies on you and i. i was a victim of the crime, yes, in fact, my social and name showed up and they are requesting that i sign up for their free credit monitoring, that being said, one of the main things or most important things that consumers should do is get what's called a credit freeze which you get through credit bureaus is another layer of protection, locks down your social on your credit report, essentially preventing a lender from getting your credit scores, if they can't get scores,
6:40 am
they're not going to extend any credit f they're not going to extend credit to a certain degree you're protected from new account fraud with a credit freeze. maria: this is half of the country, kevin kelly. i know you have other news that we want to also bring out here but go ahead. kevin: yeah, this is unbelievable. one of the things on labor day i saw an ad from experian, hey, is your information on dog website, sign up for free trial. they ran ad for it and knew they had been breached on the 29th, three days later in regulatory filing their cfo sold just under $1 million worth of shares, the cfo. that's unbelievable. maria: it really is. three days after they discovered it. maria: that's incredible. the cfo sold stock three days after they discovered and yesterday the stock was down 13%. the company sa saying he didn't know anything about it when he sold the stock.
6:41 am
kevin: the issue is he's an competent cutive, he would have to know, executive mac meant knows when something this big happens. lee: because the information is shared that we don't know about, this requires so much of the consumer to do their own due diligence on themselves, his experience of going on and finding out whether you were affected by this -- maria: how worried should people this morning? >> the most sensitive personal information, names, birth dates, driver license numbers, social security number, the most important thing is get a credit freeze, always pay attention to credit card statements, a couple hundred thousand credit cards being compromised, download your credit card company's mobile app and get alerts and notifications to every single charge. maria: robert, thank you very much for your insight this morning. robert siciliano.

7:04 am
like. i do want to tell you about something case you are in the miami area and trying to figure out a way to find gas. governor rick scott sent out a tweet lessening this is gas by the end it's an app you can download and you can look at gas in your area. the app ask the question. and lets you know if it does. we downloaded this app yesterday and we've tried it ourselves. the apple told us they have gas. it goes back and forth that's one of the problems the gas stations are running out of gas so quickly and they are still waiting. you don't know when you pull up if there could have gas. this chevron does have gas i went inside earlier and asked them how long do you plan to stay open to how long do you think you will have gas and he said we just don't know. that is a situation here in florida.

7:06 am
great american pack chairman. ed, good to see you. >> i think it's extraordinary as i've watched that. the vast majority of americans don't know them. they are more popular today than they were when they were president. these men i think have a lot of wisdom and are giving back one more time to the country. and i think it is a magnificent effort. i went to bed early lessening. at the beginning of the fourth quarter. i thought new england was on its way to victory. three months from now we will see. that's the bottom line. nancy pelosi and schumer are
7:07 am
very sophisticated inside fighters. let's see how good the deal looks when they're sitting at the table. the president has shown that it's very hard to predict this. just as the treasury secretary. it was totally opposite from what the president ended up doing. i was a he is frustrated equally as important as the leadership is struggling with him. none of us had spent more time studying anybody else in america can tell you what's actually in it. it still trying to sell a concept. >> you were in that last administration that got tax reform done. >> can you talk about how complicated it was.
7:08 am
>> i was there for both of them. the bottom line is we have bipartisan support. they were both talking about flat taxes. it was still something the country wanted and it was not a party against it. with overwhelming votes on both sides. i predict it won't be any democrats. do you think that happens then. i think the republicans have to head something. they've record low numbers for members of congress. they will put something forward i'm convinced of that. in many ways people are saying that this is as much of a
7:09 am
message to republican congressman saint that he will impact the ability to move forward on tax reform. they're not convinced that trump is the right man to lead this country. my sense is something like this is not going to endear them when you're attacking the majority of the senate or the speaker of the house. i think it's not applicable -- particularly good thing. i do think i think they will do a whole lot of favors for this president. >> you make a good point about chuck schumer and nancy pelosi being very strategic. and really fighters. they have all of the leverage come december.
7:10 am
there at the table now. you're going right after christmas. are you still have a lot of things that move decide. obviously the president and his team are getting the tax thing through but that's a long hard battle. maria: let's talk about steve bannon in this interview. he said he should have resigned. >> if you are going to break and reside. it was leaked out. if you find unacceptable i'm talking about gary cohn and some other people. if you don't like what he's doing and you don't agree with it human obligation to resign. this interview will air this weekend. this man is absolutely right. juergen decides the president publicly. you should not be a part of the administration. the bannon and cohen battle goes back to more things.
7:11 am
and philosophically they have been at work for several months. at the end of the day gary cohn has to decide if he wants to be in this administration. my premise has always been having served in a couple of administrations. you just do that job and you don't talk about other jobs you might want. if he wants to be fed chairman do a good job you're in. does looking at the campaign. our people outside the administration frustrated by that how are they feeling. i was all over fox defending him hours and making the constitutional argument. in 20 minutes later i sent the last four days defending what
7:12 am
he has said. he did a sweet saying i am rethinking it. to a certain extent the congress needs to do if they want to do it. and you need a comprehensive bill. he responded. they are not on his side. we don't have any bipartisanship left. there is none left. she does not want anything that donald trump once. let's face it this is a group that is aggressively pursuing hearings on collusion with russia. this is the group that has aggressively talked about potentially impeaching this president. and i think she is going to
7:13 am
attempt to repeal it or change it or alter it. my sense is it's nice rhetoric. the reality is three months from now when were at the table and want a lot more. to put a bipartisan group together. you really had to give a lot up. does this damage the idea of tax cuts. there can say we will not cut tax rates on the rich that so we all have come to consensus spirit. thank you so much. mexico as rocked is rocked overnight by deadly earthquake. a nation wide raid on illegal immigrants. custom agents have a scrap of their operational plans next to.

care when you show up and nobody knows anything about you it's really difficult to get excellent care. that's one thing that the affordable care act never did. the obama care legislation is more about insurance than getting ahead of disease. the data from obama care one of the benefits was that people that were out of the system get into the system. outcomes of heart disease were better in the country as a whole. that me and said i'm a believer in people having health care. when you're in the system you practice prevention. we have to develop that. we to push people to the prevention side. why should non-smokers subsidy smokers. if you sit all day why should your healthcare be subsidized but summary that's at the gym all day. we to take her own responsibility for healthcare.

7:36 am
through those lines since about 4:00 this morning. we have seen them in trying to arrangements and among those who are trying to get out of town we were able to connect this morning with doug plank. your trip has been cut a little bit short. one thing down here it's wonderful because everybody is expecting a storm and they've gone through this before. 90% of anything is preparation. these people are prepared they are extremely cordial i'm can have to cut my stay short here. everybody has been great. what was the tipping point for you. you're always leaning on your past memory and in the hurricane that just happened in houston i was getting flashbacks. the one that really got me was the nursing home and assisted living where they were underwater.
7:37 am
it's not worth it. you don't get any medal of honor badge coming for that hurricane. before we let you go where you headed and what is your experience been like so far. wendy when you hope to get out of here. i live in the dry spot of america. scottsdale arizona. it's important because i think everyone is so much more aware i think this time i was accurate last year when the hurricane missed tampa. thank you so much for your time. and doug is just one of several travelers we had have a chance to connect with this morning. some of them doing whatever they can to get to tampa international airport. the actually rented actually rented a car. traveled to tampa.

half of them are traveling to the north east on one flight the other half on another flight. hundreds of flight cancellations are expected across the board. when you're looking at that window from friday to monday. we will keep talking to travelers and we will bring you another update as soon as we get it. meanwhile the senate passed a $15.3 billion aid package for harvey victims yesterday. the house will vote on the happening today. this coming after president trump negotiated a deal with democrats which included extended the debt limit has bigger paul ryan and mark cuban weighed in on president trump's negotiation yesterday. >> i have a belief on the issues that we should put the credit markets there. i understand why his motivation is that. let's clear it so we can focus
7:39 am
on our shared agenda likes tax reform. is pure classic donald trump. i think it's very smart. you want to keep deals alive. the biggest sphere they had is that the deal would die. who keeps a keeps the deal alive. during this right now wisconsin congressman to talk about that. congressman duffy your take on this. here's what the president did. he think he is clearing the deck and saying let's get the debt limit off of our plate for the short-term but what he really did was move it only three months down the line when techs are from is going to be the hottest. about the time these issues are coming up. he has actually empowered democrats. he's giving them incredible leverage to wreak havoc on tax
7:40 am
reform. i know everybody sits back and applauds him. some republicans no matter what the president will do what he will support them. he shot from the hip and missed the target. when were trying to do these big issues that we promise this is good to come blowback rate in her face and it's gonna be a big problem. >> are you going to need democrat votes for that tax reform or what you do reconciliation. i would argue that the resist movement the never trump movement is so strong there to try to hold even democrats who understand the need for tax reform they are going to be afraid of the left wing base. we would love democrats to come with us. this is not a person issue. >> but will you need democrat, september.
7:41 am
we are in a little bit of a problem because we don't have money from healthcare or the back taxes. we are working out details on how we get the revenue to lower rates. we can still do it on our own. it's easier to do it with democrats. >> we keep talking about that. the house is doing fine. it's a sign that we are having issues with. and donald trump was telling him that. time and time again i've ask you to suspend the rules to get the legislative agenda done and it hasn't happened. here he is just a if you guys are going to get something done i will do it myself can you blame the president for doing something like that. yes i can because i think it's short sighted.
7:42 am
we've talked about blowing up the filibuster rule. what the senate can actually do as they could actually just tweak their roles and in african do budget reconciliation make sure that it doesn't have to be revenue neutral. we can just do a massive tax reform. don't worry about the budget neutrality of it. if they make that small change we can blow the top off of tax reform and executed done with 51 votes. they care more about their roles than the american people. and that's why we're having so big of a problem. not only do we have a dead -- debt limit increase we have an increase of federal spending but they also did a clean short-term extension of the flood insurance program.
7:43 am

8:12 am
always had leverage when in power they know how to use it when out of power know how to us i wouldn't it they have been able to stymie the gop at every turn, so really doesn't matter, in terms of congress as to which party is power, that is what we're seeing couldn't get obamacare through, but or repeal, couldn't get you know who knows what is going to happen the tax reform, the infrastructure bill. immigration illegal immigration reform like nine months in this congress have done small things around the edges, but they promised if they got power were going big and bold we have not seen that on this gop and congress, doesn't have help from gop congress. >> always a pleasure to see you thank you very much, we appreciate it, and by the way, the sheriffs comments really reflect the the frustration of the american people. >> no doubt. maria: does it not. >> no doubt i spent time talking to american people, for three hours, and it is as
