advisor gary cohn. and kevin har hark hassett defeg trump's two years of tax cuts. is this just prfrom two guys who formulated the plan or did the tax cuts really payoff. >> the tax cuts really paid off. there is always a an anecdote. on machine wh someone maybe dids well, but the majority of americans got tax cuts, if you have a financia 401(k), you pare in that, this year all asset classes are up, you have record lows in unemployment across the board, including minorities and women. overall, this was a great success. >> you cannot attribute things like unemployment going down,
5:02 pm
rising markets, and general goodwill in the gdp to tax cuts, those trends were well in place -- >> what? >> woe -- >> let me finish. >> and wage growth past 2 years 2.4%. both slower than it was in 2016. and 17, as in end of obama administration, as you know, i don't think any of it should be attributed to obama or trump. david: another fact federal reserve had a forecast at beginning of this administration that unemployment rate would inch up to 5%. in fact it came down to to 3.5%, this lowest if has been in 50 years. there is strong evidence that we went counter to trend rather that than with trend. >> david, it is no big surprise. tax cuts, put more money in
5:03 pm
hands, stop hearing when people say giving tax cuts to wealthy individuals it is letting them keep the money they have earned, putting more money in hands of the productive people who have earned it. there is a fantasy about rich, they put all their wealth in a big you know room like scrooge mcduck. what do they do with it. david: i do that. >> they are the one that vote of it and create the job -- that invest is create the jobs. >> thank you, for, joh jonathane give them money, they don't give us money, we're the driving force, government does not turn on lights without the dime that we give them. >> right. >> and be clear, and consierks i am sorry zach -- >> he took a deep breath. >> markets are skyrocketing, i speak too small businessessing all of the time, caroll is the queen of small business they are
5:04 pm
happy of all heck about massive regulatory cuts they don't have too look over their shoulders every day, and california wants to screw the independent contractor there that will hurt business. david: let's talk to a man who spends his life dealing with small business. gary cohn and har has hassett. bring in hector great to see you. what do you think, have small businesses done as well or better than big corps? >> no doubt. remember that old saying trust with verification. we were trusts it would work, now we have a lot of results, you don't have to take my word for it you talk to small businesses every day, they're happy with the way things are going right now, they want it to keep going they hope this environment they have been
5:05 pm
living under, will continue to go on to future. but, all across the board, whether you look at unemployment rates which are at historic lows, especially the hispanic market, we have never seen numbers this low, people are investing more into their businesses, and expanding operations. so, we want this to continue, and by the way we think that there more that can be done with regard to tax incentives for small businesses. david: like what? >> well, at end of the day, as you know most small businesses pay their taxes at the individual rates, we think that individual rates could go down a little bit more. a lot of large corporations va mechanism that small businesses don't have to detuck things, and have moneys offshore and et cetera, small businesses don't have that advantage. we think that tax cuts are good are they are helping shall be but we could do more and grow the economy further for the next couple years.
5:06 pm
>> gary? >> may i add, give or fake a few bucks here, we're going to send government federal state and local this year like 5 1/2 trillion dollars. >> tha that is a lot of run. >> there is room to cut, they have not proven themselves to be appreciate with our dollars, i would take a few bucks out, and not feed the beast as much and watch the economy get stronger than it right now. we the people that drive the economy not them. >> on other hand. let these throw something in here, we were told time again if you cut taxes and cut tax rates you will have less tax revenue. >> we have proved this wrong. >> more. david: more tax he revenue has e in, supply side theory that
5:07 pm
increasing economic activity with lower rates can lead more revenue that is a good thing. >> i agree with gary, and with some of your other panel onists, we -- panelists, we have a spending problem. some incentives built in have benefits us in ways not seep before, trillions of dollar repatrioted back united states a lot of money is back into the companies, they are hiring more, they are loading up on inventories, i think we'll see a lot of that evidence in this last couple days. >> i mean -- >> you will see numbers go up in terms of sales. >> hector not like a le a -- thk you for being with us, not such a mystery about where prosperity comes from. lower taxes, lower regulations, and lower government spending, hopefully trump will work on government spending in 2020. >> please. >> the notion of small business, would you see big business is toportraited as evil, amazon for
5:08 pm
example, in a prosper iosous ecy a rising tide lifts all boats. >> no bought about it amazon was a small company once. the small businesses there is nothing small about them they are the engine that fuel the economy. a lot of the innovation comes from those small businesses, whatever we can do to give them more of their own money, they know what to do with it they are not taking vacations and buying new cars. >> one thing tax cut -- have led to higher government deficits. david: why do you say that, spending has led. >> no. >> right. >> if you don't cut your spending, you cut your taxes get
5:09 pm
higher deficit. >> tax revenue up 4% in 2019. over 2018, not a revenue problem, it is a spending problem. >> zach on the record he wants to cut government spending. >> i did not say that, you are my god deficits are ge t going o kill us, now the future is gold in. >> no, we hate deficits we hate inefficient and too high spending that needs to be addressed moving forward or there will be a day of reckoning, i am in that camp. >> hector, you have to come back, you sorry a lot of debates here appreciate it. >> merry christmas. >> merry christmas true. >> a big shake up at boeing, this is solution visitors and passengers have been looking for? ♪music

david: that did not go over so well that was boeing ceo dennis mullin berg about two months ago he is out today partly because of that testimony, amid the 7 37 max debacle, grady trimble with latest from chicago. >> at top of the new ceo to do list is getting the 73 7 max back in the air, with new leadership of calhoun, boeing company will have a renewed commitment this tra transparenc. after former ceo came under firing for his handling of the crisis, he was too cozy with regulators in getting plane to market. then not transparent enough for their responsibility for the crashes, boeing is still working

5:15 pm
out. i know you say golden parachute, i believe he would rather have stayed in his job. but that type of failure is not tolerated. but what about government, my guess none of the relate or to failed are out of a job, they will problem get a increase, it is up to government whether the planes over are fly again -- offeever fly again. i contend that flying is safer than walking down the street, and this company has become an arm of the faa . it is up to them whether the planes will fly. >> flying is safe. but more than 300 people died and most believe that it was -- it would have been avoidable if they did their job, and not too koz we regulators also, cozy with the regulators, ceo had to g handling of last 6 months was aoka.they will sell planes, thee
5:16 pm
way off. the stock went up 15 dollars that day, it was false. and i think that dye has been cast, a good move they replaced him, he did a wonderful job getting boeing to where it was before this happened but it was about time, hopefully that's can get their act together, they are a great company. >> i think that is an indictment a little bit about board, it took the board too long to remove him, it should have been done a long time ago, then that golden parachute and gradey and david mentioned this is issue that most people have with quote unquote capitalism that is cronyism, which a board are not strong enough in terms of compensation when things go bad, they want to see someone take accountability that is -- >> he lost his job, caroll, what else do you want a pound of flesh? he is out out of a job.
5:17 pm
>> most people would say if you are terminated or ar you resign, because things have not gone well, it should be built into your contract in a better way. their are a little bit too cozy, i think that is one of the big issues, that we contend with when people talk about capitalism. >> this one of those things no one company can make the change, right, the one company that does, all headhunters or people doing ceo searches say, don't go work for that company. it is really not a change that one company can do. it is -- we have seen companies try to get ahead of the pack. and it rarely works, but on their detriment, you are right, there should be more consequences, he himself did not responsible for the crash for say, she , per se, he is responsible for mismanaging the spoons. >response. >> no one has addressed have
5:18 pm
there been any consequences the faa ? any regulator lost their. david: and faa as you mentioned was too cozy, with boeing, but recently they have been after muilenberg to get out it might have been they too much information was going to be revealed about the way they have been working with boeing, maybe they were interested in getting rid of him. >> let us not forget the approval of the plane that had problem went much quicker than expected even though i had trained pilot say, in are problems with it, john than youu are 1000% right you there are flamblame there. >> note last chapter of the story. david: we'll until follow it. >> u.s. on high alert, official on edge after warnings of a dangerous quote christmas gift
