>> killed the parade, the nice buzz will built in florida. stuart: why is it important? >> reporter: set up the fight we will have ten days before christmas. the new date is december 15th, two weeks later than yellen's additional forecast. it gives congress more time to strike a deal on how to lift or suspend the debt ceiling and whose responsibility it is, will they got on board to do this together? what are the consequences? push the government to default on the debt for the first time ever, likely push the economy into a recession and the almost guaranteed partisan fight just before christmas could cancel the santa claus rally we are used to seeing. stuart: that is the timetable is laid out. white house officials say the cbo isn't qualified the cost to big spending bill.

9:08 am
year over year, it is 3% higher than it was a year ago even if you get out inflation at the highest level, increase in retail sales, record on every level. it speaks to the fact that consumers are doing well and it speaks to future earnings being better than expected. stuart: they are at one.6%. if it is 2%, what is on the market? >> there is the rub. a front burner issue as far as the rally is concerned. if you see rapidly rising rates, handling it fairly easily. the benchmark i'm looking at,
9:09 am
if we pop above that, it is a bit of indigestion to deal with and if we get to 2% by the end of this year which would be a staggering move higher. they take a pause and look where we might go in the first quarter, a damper on the rally. stuart: it sounds to me that you are more cautious than you had been. >> you are 100% swans or an event that we understand is going to happen like the taper happening such as rates rising and how the markets digest that. we are going to see more
9:10 am
volatility. and interest rates where they end up. stuart: now this. how democrats plan to hold 1000 events to celebrate the recent legislative wins. this sounds like an attempt to recoup their election loss but i wouldn't dismiss it. build help, families, children and the elderly have a lot of appeal. >> people will be talking about the cost of thanksgiving, the issues like education, parents with school board meetings and voice their concerns. they are talking about the border, the price of commodities, bread and butter, eggs, those are the issues american people will be talking about. spending money we don't have on things we don't need it. when it comes to parenting, when it comes to household

budgets, that means the most to americans. democrats can do 10,000 events between now and the end of the year but anything will remind them of why there was a rebuff of democrats in tuesday's elections in november. this is not what we are bargaining for. hurting at home, with midterm, first term elections. stuart: politics has been banned on the thanksgiving dinner table. do you think there will be a comeback this year? >> it is a political thanksgiving because of the sheer cost and anger of americans. that will transcend into the holiday season as well. one of the biggest hammers over the american people's heads will be raising the debt ceiling. what does that mean for next year and the years coming forward. will america pay its own bills?

biden, who think the united states can power ourselves on windmills and solar panels are just wrong and the american people are paying the price. that is the real problem we have. in wyoming and most of america people know we need it all, the oil, gas, coal, we need nuclear power. we need the wind, solar, modern life demands affordable energy and i tell you what democrats are doing, trying to pass this reckless tax and spending bill, that will drive energy costs even higher. stuart: wyoming is one of the leaders in energy production. are you benefiting from the high price of oil, coal, and gas? >> there is revenue coming into the state as a result of that but additionally we made a big announcement that in wyoming, the energy capital of our nation, we are going to build

we will see russian oil tankers making delivery in boston harbor this winter and it is a result of the biden policies. it is going to be a jackpot for russia and what we've done is taking us from being an energy dominance nation under donald trump to an energy dependent nation under president biden. stuart: come back soon, we want to hear more about that new plant in wyoming. see you again soon. energy secretary jennifer graham's vocal about ending the use of gasoline. this is the video. >> he made a cameo in 2018. ♪♪ as when gasoline ♪♪ gasoline gasoline ♪♪ electric change the way we move around

big retailers reported before the bill. i to to start with target, down 4.7%. >> it was a fantastic report card, stronger than anticipated, sales, online sales jumping by a third and raising guidance to holiday sales, between high single digits to double-digit growth. inventories are healthy because they chartered their ownership to get around the supply chain problem and it has to do with inflation. you hear from brian cornell about higher prices when it comes to food, gas, and more and same with walmart, fantastic quarter but when your profit margins get squeezed with higher prices inflation that is the problem. stuart: in impressive report. >> purchases for the holiday season as well, across all retailers. stuart: how about lowe's?

these numbers and blaming americans for being ungrateful. >> there's a lot of americans who despite having gotten the shots in check are telling pollsters he has a compass nothing or almost nothing which i find amazing. i guess they spent the whole $2,000 and are not happy anymore. >> when you lose the public confidence which is what these poll numbers are showing it is hard to justify. it continues this blame game. we shop too much which is why we are having the supply-chain crisis and not smart enough to understand the supply chain anyway. stuart: i wonder if they ever quote me on msnbc. >> i don't watch msnbc so i can't answer the question. stuart: i am available. here is a headline. economic romance between manchin and yellen could save america. larry kudlow wrote that. in what way if they get together can a save america? >> i need to keep you off ms
9:45 am
nbc. i have to throw myself in front of that in any way, shape or form. what i am suggesting is we are in an inflation blowout quarter which may lasts longer. after the numbers yesterday, 60% retail sales, 11% year on year import prices, cpi in october is up 8% above the third quarter. you could be looking at an 8% growth rate, in q4. the gdp, 8% growth. we are overstimulated. overstimulated. we don't need another dime of spending. here is where i am going with this. janet yellen said on the sunday
9:46 am
show that she thought inflation would last longer but with peter down in the second half of next year. as you know, senator manchin has repeatedly said we should have a pause on new spending until inflation shows signs of calling down. i stupid the two together. it is an economic romance. miss yellen has laid out the marker. manchin laid out the action. no new spending. i say no new spending until the second half of next year at the least. that might be too soon but i say he should jump on yellen's point and push this through and stop this bill, save america, kill the bill. whatever comes out of the house must be killed in the senate and the point is we don't need an inflationary blowout.
9:47 am
we shouldn't nurture it or feed it with any more federal spending and let me say one more thing, the federal reserve should completely stop qb, stop. no more bond purchases, none. 0. because monetary inflation, milton friedman inflation is coming on like gangbusters. stuart: i hate to think what would happen on the market if the fed stopped bond buying. let me move on to something fascinating. raising the salt. it would be the second most expensive program in the build back better plan, raising the salt cost for the rebuilding roads and bridges or rebuilding the electric grid it is a total giveaway to the rich. i find this fascinating. what about you? >> a complicated question because i like rich people. always have.

second most costly item in president biden's build back better plan is a huge giveaway to rich democrat donors. raising the local deduction to 80,000 from 10,000 costs $85 billion. that is more expensive than any other item in the bill except for pre-k and child health. this costs more than rebuilding roads and bridges, more than fixing the electric grid, more than paid family leave and double the cost of the at home medical services for the elderly. whoa. the democrats make a big deal about helping families, children and the elderly but they're helping the rich to the tune of $285 billion. that money goes almost entirely to the wealthy. in particular the wealthy in high-taxed states. those are democrats states. those democrat states will get a subsidy from gop-run states like florida and texas.
10:02 am
good lord. if you spend so much coddling the rich and less on helping working families what does that tell but the democrat party? it tells you that the party is totally split and does not have a unifying message and it also tells you above all the people who provide the party with its money have to be protected. $285 billion to the top 10%. it is democrats who are doing it. amazing. second hour of "varney" just getting started. ♪♪ stuart: all right. have a look at this, this is in the "new york post," an op-ed, is joe biden the second coming of herbert hoover? that caught my attention. the author of that piece is michael goodwin and he joins me now. if biden is the herbert hoover of the 21st century, are you forecasting another great depression like the one that followed herbert hoover?
10:03 am
>> stuart, no, i'm not forecasting a great depression but i am searching for a model that explains joe biden and particularly on the question of inflation, his inaction in almost kind of a shrug of the shoulders, let them eat cake attitude. jen psaki actually said that the rising price of gasoline was really a benefit because it would hurry up the conversion to electric vehicles. now by that measurement we should all celebrate when gas hits $10 a gallon. this is insanity and there is a coldness attached to it because they don't want to fight inflation because it goes to the heart of their send spending plans. stuart: if you follow up on that, if you follow up on that, you do keep spending, you get a real spike in inflation you are going to have a very nasty recession because as at some
10:04 am
point the federal reserve says we'll not print money, we'll raise rates and that sends economy on a tailspin. you are forecasting a recession at the very least? >> i think a recession is almost inevitable with this inflation rate. whether it become as depression, we hope not but i think there are a number of failed presidents that joe biden could look to for motivation how to get out of this. jimmy cart letters, you know kind of a malaise, his attack on the american people similar to what some on the left are doing now. they're not grateful for joe biden, things like that. you had gerald ford of course with his whip inflation now, very ineffective approach. you had jimmy carter, obviously a lot of people looking at jimmy carter and saying what about him? george h.w. bush also stood, you know, stood kind of sullen in
10:05 am
the face of a recession. now later it turned out the statistics were behind but nonetheless i think people, when there is a economic crisis such as we're beginning to face now people look to the president, not only for the right policies but they look for a sensitive president who understands this and joe biden is not doing either. stuart: all right. michael goodwin, an interesting column, thanks for bringing it to our attention. we'll see you again real soon. thanks, michael. >> thank you. stuart: a city in northern california, repeat, california, declaring itself a sanctuary city from government overreach. standing up to mandates, vaccine mandates. lauren: orville, population, 19,000. this is not a democrat city, about split between democrat republican. they're sanctuary city of freedom, passing a resolution promising not to enforce any vaccine or mask mandate even if

10:08 am
longer. they're going to have to act. and when they act odds the market reacts with a drop. isn't that in your forecast? >> it is certainly one of the possibilities. increasingly inching its way towards a probability, but your premise the fed has to act while absolutely right comes down to a question of when and i don't think this is a fed that is going to try to do anything dramatic in terms of getting ahead of the near term inflationary moment because they still view it as transitory and manageable. we view it a little more episodic but still manageable. stuart: okay. we're not supposed to say this but only time will tell. i think you're wrong about thanksgiving and i think you're wrong about the fed, i'm prepared to accept you know more about it than i do. we'll have you back next week. see how we go then. >> look forward to it. stuart: jim lowell. thank you. lauren, come in here. movers, something called on

10:31 am
different than previous treatments for covivid. it does not require an iv or an injection. it comes with a series of pills taken at home. intended for high-risk patients in the early stages of covid infection. the company reported in clinical trials it cut hospitalizations and deaths in unvaccinated high-risk adults by 89%. pfizer has signed a voluntary licensing agreement will allah generic manufacturers to produce their own version of the drug in 95 countries. those countries accounting more than half of the world's population. the food and drug administration is evaluating a competing pill from merck. thighs at-home treatments are expected to be less expensive and easier to obtain, therefore increasing the ability of more high-risk patients to survive covid-19. meanwhile the fda says it will review pfizer's request to authorize covid vaccine boosters for adults of all ages as expeditiously as possible.
10:32 am
according to "the new york times," this could happen as early as thursday. also has to be signed off by the cdc. that agency's vaccine advisors are meetings on friday. so, stuart, it is entirely possible you could see the pool of eligible people for these vaccine boosters to be expanded as early as this weekend. stu, back to you. stuart: jonathan, my next question is, will we get a booster mandate. that is another story for another time. reporter: that is another story for another time. stuart: here it comes too. thanks, jonathan. i have got some headlines for you. look at these, eight dead, dozens infected with covid-19 due to outbreak at connecticut nursing home. no matter how old you are, two shots of pfizer vaccine don't last. that is according to this study. biden administration plans imminent booster expansion to all adults. you get headlines like this all the time. dr. marty makary is with me now. i see this all the time. i am in the news business so i
10:33 am
see these kind of headlines. looks like it is never going away. my question, doctor, do we have to learn to live with this thing? >> we do. i think what we're not hearing the risk of covid is not equally distributed in the population. it is a message that we missed early and a message we're missing late in the pandemic. let me give you some numbers, stu. if you have a full portfolio of vaccine, vaccination, that is you're fully vaccinated your risk of getting covid is one in 2,000 per week. the risk of -- is one in 20,000 per week. now that risk is heavily clustered towards older people. the average age of a breakthrough infect being hospitalized is 3. the average age of someone dying is age 80. what you will see as these boosters get pushed out around advisories recommending them, college students are going to be required to get boosters. it is going to ignore the fact that the risk is not equally distributed in the population.
10:34 am
it is always been hard for this virus to hurt someone young and healthy. that is still the case. stuart: what about a booster mandate? i can see it coming. i think the administration is considering it. you don't favor it? >> no. because, remember, kids who are unvaccinated have a lower risk than adults who are vaccinated. if a young healthy person has two natural doses of the vaccine in their system designed by god. so remember it may be a different tailored strategy by age and risk. when the government says mandate a booster, by the way colleges and boosters are already drafting up plans to mandate boosters right now. what you are going to see, subject young people to the risk of myocarditis and other complications when they may not benefit from the booster. why the fda advisory committee -- voted down boosters for all. now the fda will ream it through by not convening experts for the
10:35 am
next round of valuation. stuart: what is going on with europe? have they go a fourth or fifth with wave going through? i see austrian cases hit a record high. they're taking actions against christmas markets in germany and elsewhere? another wave hitting there, is another wave going to come here? >> i think the delta wave is the final wave in the united states. we'll have to see what the data shows on the durability of the vaccine in older people but if you look at what's happening right now we have extremely low levels, maybe the lowest levels of the entire pandemic in the southeast united states. the great lakes region is struggling right now. they have vaccination rates in the 60, 70% range. look at some of these firewalls if you will, some of these backstops of pennsylvania, connecticut, massachusetts, vermont, they have 92, 93% of population over 12 vaccinated. so i think this is the final wave.

last september. i tell you revenues have grown 100% month on month over the last three months. so it has been a wonderful lawn of our website and we're looking forward to continue to sell and, very high-end branded goods to the vietnamese marketplace. stuart: did you just say you've got 100% month on month revenue and you kept that up for some time? is that what you said? >> yeah. well we relaunched our leflair website in september. it has been three months. we've recorded 100% month on month revenue growth. stuart: why are you show confident that you can keep that kind of growth up in the future? >> i think the vietnamese, obviously the, 100% month by month will obviously taper out as the base grows bigger and bigger, but where we're at in
10:44 am
vietnam in particular, of course southeast asia in general you have a very, very large e-commerce market. there are 750 million people living in southeast asia and vietnam we have 100 million people. we have 120 million people and in indonesia we have 275 million people. of which 60 to 70 are online at all times. so there is a captured market there for yearning to by and access high branded, high-end international brands that we are selling. stuart: okay. you're doing well. congratulations sir. we appreciate you being on the show today. hope you can keep up that growth rate. that is spectacular. den minutes nguyen. good to see you. you get it. let's have a look at trade, the port of los angeles long beach will delay charging hefty fees to ocean carriers that leave
10:45 am
cargo at the terminals for too long. lauren, why are they doing that? lauren: because the fee was never meant to be punitive t was meant to be an incentive, essentially look, if the item is meant to go on a truck or on a rail we'll charge awe different price but there will be a daily fee if you don't unload these cargo containers fast enough. we'll keep increasing the price. everybody listened and they're doing it. they're getting it done. so the situation is not as bad. so they postponed this fee for the second time. they will probably do it indefinitelies because they're starting to unclog the ports. stuart: threat works. lauren: like the mandate, in some cases it works. stuart: yes it did, united airlines got 99% of their employees vaxed because they insisted on it. thanks. brazen criminals have been wreaking havoc on the streets of new york. we'll show you this one again. it is just awful. many critics blame the city's cash bail reform. anything being done to stop this rising crime?

10:51 am
people who are cheating on their taxes. the white house is banking on getting 400 billion from doing that but the cbo says they will get as much as 140 billion. so there is a big gap there. so yesterday the white house really pushed back on the ability and the credibility of the cbo. >> there has been wide agreement on the part of everyone involved, moderates, liberals, et cetera, that cbo does not have experience analyzing revenue amounts gained from cracking down on wealthy tax cheats who are taking advantage of every honest taxpayer. reporter: but the cbo came out yesterday and said they actually do have a lot of experience in that area. they have a lot of former treasury officials working underneath them who have that experience as well and the former director of the cbo said this, perhaps the most important thing to know about cbo it exists somely because congress decided that it could not rely on any administration for reliable budget information.
10:52 am
so i caught up today with the house ways and means chairman richard neal. he is the guy that put these pay-fors in place to come up with the cash to pay for all of this and i asked him about the white house messaging on this? is it helpful for the white house to be doubting the ability and the credit ability of the cbo when the whole point of them is to provide a non-partisan -- >> it's a framework. they provide a framework. so does the joint committee on taxation i herald all of the time. so i think there are different and competing perspectives from time to time. so i don't denigrate what a professional agency like cbo suggests as much as to say it is but that, an estimate. reporter: that is the democrats messaging stuart, today. it is an estimate. really don't take the cbo too seriously. stuart: don't take them too seriously, how convenient. thank you, hillary. florida senator rick scott,
