9:04 am
before the holiday season. stuart: will be covering this throughout a three hour show. president biden will be with joe manchin to discuss build back better. charlie hurt joins us will the meeting decide the fate of build back better? >> it very well may. we see a real difference to democrats for a long time beating up joe manchin and blaming him for all of their woes and failures because he doesn't always go along with the program. they're trying a little honey now the problem he pointed out with joe biden trying to convince joe manchin, he's looking at his own numbers in there at historic lows for somebody at this point in his presidency. while joe manchin, he is not up for reelection next year he will be up for reelection in 2024 in a state that has a particular animus against joe biden and the democrat party.
9:05 am
stuart: joe manchin has put a ceiling of $1.7 trillion on new spending. but the wall street journal goes to town on it this morning pointed out that two programs in the childcare allowances if that costed out for the full ten years would eat up all $1.7 trillion if that's pointed out to joe biden joe manchin you cannot go forward like this. >> right i have a whole lot more faith in the wall street journal than the congressional budget considering all the things the c.b.o. has gotten wrong but even the c.b.o. has acknowledged that $3 trillion in unfunded and additional spending will add to the deficit.
9:06 am
one thing to remember the 28th reagan dollars in debt and deficit that we have as a country now every penny of that was built not on predictions that it would be deficit. that is the problem. every time congress passes the massive spending bills and they claim that is all paid for, never ends up being paid for. $28 trillion in debt and that was supposedly paid for in here you have the c.b.o. and wall street journal talking about this bill being trillions of dollars more expensive meaning trillions of dollars were putting out a credit card and were handy to her children and grandchildren that they're going to have to pay for that will come out of their pockets after we're gone that's included in this bill and that doesn't even get into the issue of inflation which i think is a real argument, if you want to go after joe manchin, republicans
9:07 am
need to make joe manchin the face of inflation because if they pass this bill on top of inflation that we already have, he's going to own the future inflation and he's going to have to face voters to 2024 knowing that he contributed to the fact that nobody can afford gas or groceries. stuart: thank you for being with us on a monday morning, we appreciate it. let's get to the futures and show how things are shaping up this monday morning not that much price movement except on the nasdaq which is a solid 50-point gain, chasing cats with us today, the fed kicks off the crucial two day meeting tomorrow. >> what do you think they're going to do. >> is not just the feathers 20 other central banks meeting this week, given that we had the highest cpi since 1982, licensed to double down on accelerating the taper originally our

expectations are $15 billion reduction for the ad would not be surprised if that's moved up to $30 billion reduction, frankly the market is going to be looking more at what the guidance is as far as rate hikes are concerned. what is the cadence or amount, our view we are going to get tumor starting in the spring it looks like it will be more than that in sooner than that and will have to brace for volatility. stuart: is not baked into the market, to rate hikes and less and less tapering? >> the market has discounted $15 billion celebration of the taper. they have not baked into the cake 30. they're looking at more than three rate hikes. i think we get an announcement of north of three not that they will articulate that but markets are not prepared for that. stuart: you think inflation is in the rearview mirror?
9:09 am
>> certainly the stock market feels that way. on the other hand the fixed income market is viewing it very differently. the truth lies in the middle i think the inflation year-over-year numbers are only good get worse and worse in the months to come but were seeing green shoots in a moderation with wage inflation and housing inflation for some time to come. stuart: that could be nasty, thank you for joining us, we'll see you again really soon. we talk frequency on this program at the presidents plunging poll numbers. we have a new poll taking hit on inflation. lauren: 69 of americans do not approve the way president biden handled inflation, that means 20% to approve, with a thin number of independence, key voting block about the same percentage disapprove that's bad

you are our speculation is the metaverse is multitrillion dollar opportunity and will take decades to. and betting on winners is a difficult. apple is a 3 trillion-dollar company. we all wish we could back to 1995 to bet on apple stock but we all bet on samsung or nokia or blackberry. the truth is we didn't need to make a single met. if we bought social network, semiconductor companies, we would have looked back on that investment and be happy. that is our goal with the metaverse etf. stuart: i tend to think the metaverse which is really phenomenon to me, is geared toward my grandchildren, not to me. is that rather simplistic? >> i think what we see overtime the technical waves you see as a mixture of networking and computing, we saw that with mainframe computing and the rise

10:36 am
the worry hackers can install malware, steal user data and much more. so they're very worried. microsoft this was a popular hack for their "minecraft" game. they already issued a patch to protect their gamers but other companies like amazon still working on it. >> what is the new report, that the job market will not return to normal anytime soon. what is normal? lauren: exactly. where there is people interested in applying for a job. it comes from glassdoor, that is the site where people can see companies. they don't see a silver bullet type of fix for the labor market, because you have schools reopen, employment benefits withdrawn, the extra ones, but you have a culture a little bit different, an aging population. and 2022 they say will be just as hard a year for companies to find workers as this year was. stuart: you know the bottom line, there is awful lot of people don't want to go back to

vaccinated. stuart: you wouldn't bother. lauren: you wouldn't bother. exactly. stuart: that will hit brings. that is philadelphia. the. lauren: the mayor says we want to get through the winter wave of omicron and the variants and keep people safe. that is the reasoning. we'll see what it does to the economy. stuart: next case, the administration is saying they may improves to the supply chain crisis, however, there are still major issues at the nation's ports. kelly o'grady is at the port of los angeles. is it still backed up there, kelly? reporter: is it ever, stuart. we're close to an all-time high. unfortunately there is no silver bullet when it comes to the supply chain crisis. there have small improvements, worker shortages, rising inflation. one of the key initiatives to address this, moving to 24/7 operation but here at the ports it is difficult to fill the early morning shift. on top of that truckers can only work 11 hours a day.
10:44 am
warehouses here in socal only operate in the day particularly. that will take time to get with 24/7 in play. i want to give you an idea on the port clog because some numbers may be misleading and reports of improvements may be misleading. looking at ships wading in the 40-mile port zone, there is huge improvement, 28 in weekend. if you add those outside the zone, a lot of ships are playing offshore, the total ships loitering is 95, near an all-time high. last time we spoke about the port crisis, the effect new fees would have on the ports. i asked the executive director of the port of l.a. about the impact. >> when we first shared the concept of a penalty fee on aging containers we have seen a decline of almost 54%, simply the discussion of that penalty as really motivate ad number about parties. there is much more work to do. but i like the traction we're
10:45 am
getting so far. reporter: now you have new ships coming in with orders stacking up. as omicron spreads there is fear of global shut down of the supply chain crisis which is the fear. stuart: kelly o'grady, from los angeles. thanks, kelly. market show a ton of red ink. dow industrials down 300. nasdaq down over 114. there is concern about the omicron outbreak in britain which killed one person over there, what it would do when it comes here in large numbers. there is concern about what the fed will do at their meeting tomorrow and on wednesday. by the way, boeing, goldman sachs and home depot, those three stocks are dow stocks. they're all way down. that is taking 140 points off the dow industrials. stuart: president biden's approval on crime plummeting. more smash and grab incidents over the weekend. we have the latest numbers for
10:46 am
you. inflation has reached the highest level in 39 years but president biden says well, we've hit the peak already. watch this. >> i think you will see a change sooner than, quicker, more rapidly than take most people think. stuart: well grover norquist will join us, he says if build back better gets through, it will only get worse, that is inflation, that is. he is next. ♪. as i observe investors balance risk and reward, i see one element securing portfolios, time after time. gold. your strategic advantage.

stuart: markets are a little spooked by omicron? markets are spooked what the fed might do in next couple days. markets are down all across the board. president biden, he has been talking about inflation all over again. what's the latest? lauren: he says it will not get worse than what we're feeling right now. >> it's a real bump in the road. it does affect families. when you walk into the grocery store an you're paying more for whatever you're purchasing it matters. lauren: he said it is at the peak. then he went on to say his build back better plan lowers costs
10:51 am
but not for retailers. we saw kelly o'grady's report. it might seem better at the california port but hundreds and hundreds of miles away a near record number of ships waiting to get to the port. they have to unclog the ships. that takes time. not for energy, right? gasoline prices are down two cents in a week but with the cold winter and high cost to heat your home, this is going to be, it will only, we're not at the peak. the peak is about to come for many american families. stuart: that is an interesting point. i want to bring in grover norquist on this one. grover, biden says we're at the peak inflation level. you're laughing. you don't believe that? >> not if he passes that tax-and-spend bill that he is putting forward. that has a whole collection of things that increase prices for working men and women. for starters it is at $1.2 trillion in quote, unquote, business taxes. but if you poll the american people, they know what happens when businesses have higher
10:52 am
taxes. they can tell you prices go up. we also know that about 70% of the corporate tax is paid for in lower wages. according to the tax foundation. add to that, there is a subsidy, a cash subsidy for trial lawyers suing small businesses that then what, raises prices. you take a billion dollars out of a business, where are they getting that? higher prices. trial lawyers make everything expensive this subsidizes trial lawyers. labor unions have work rules which make everything expensive there is subsidy for june dues. there is subsidy for buying electric car only to a unionized company. so what does that do? it raises prices. there is nothing here, they want to have all sorts of rules for who can take care of your child. we're going to subsidize your child care but you have to have somebody with a college degree who pays teachers union dues. what does that cost? stuart: you summarized all of this in an article on
10:53 am
foxbusiness.com. you have got $80 billion for the irs to audit and harass taxpayers. tax increases on working families. the highest income tax rate in the developed world. price controls and taxes on american medicines. tax giveaways to special interests like the union dues for example. you add it all up, you say this creates inflation. it doesn't tamp down on inflation. that is your argument? >> sadly, he is doing more of all these things than carter did and he brought us double-digit inflation. stuart: now what happens at this big meeting this week where the president meets senator manchin. it is all about how much are we going to spend and will we get big build back better? what do you think is going to happen? >> manchin said, manchin of west virginia, democratic senator, i won't tolerate more than $1.7 trillion. we now learn that biden's bill that came out of the house is
10:54 am
$5 trillion over 10 years, if you take it seriously, five trillion. 3 trillion in additional debt. if manchin says no, holds to 1.7, that would reduce the damage, a lot. stuart: do you think he will actually hold out? >> i think he will. he made this a point of his own personal honor. he wrote a letter and a handed it to schumer, the democrats, this is my line in the sand. he can't walk that back. schumer leaked it to undermine manchin. theories of the party kicked him in the back. i think he stands tall and workers of west virginia, we see reduction in the damage. they're talking about putting more money into the covid thing. there is still a trillion dollars that hasn't been appropriated yet. we can spend that instead of this new stuff. stuart: we could. grover, see you real soon. >> thank you, stuart.
10:55 am
stuart: grover norquist. republican senators are announcing the alarm on the vaccine mandate on truckers crossing the border. what are they saying? lauren: that the vaccine mandate on the northern border from canada will exacerbate the inflation we have now. 14,000 trucks come across the border every single day, hauling $850 million worth worth of stuff. stuart: is there a mandate on those truckers? lauren: there will be. stuart: there will be. lauren: if you can't get the goods here, too many people chasing too few goods. prices continue to go up. stuart: inflation. thank you, lauren. still ahead, steve forbes, congressman andgy biggs, sean duffy and heather macdonald. hillary clinton says if president trump wins the presidency in 2024 that we will not recognize the country. with no border and higher gas prices i'm not sure i recognize our border right now.

11:02 am
2024 americans won't recognize our country. after 11 months of the biden administration i'm not sure i recognize our country right now. a year ago we were cheering healthcare workers. now were firing them for knocking vaccinated. a year ago the border was under control. now the border is open and cities are overrun. remember the price of gas at the return of the year it is up a dollar 20 cents per gallon. and placing 39 year high, crime spiking, organize mass colluding, this is still america but it's a long way from where was in the trump years. hillary is doing the democrats in favor by bringing back trump as the villain, she distracts from bidens crises, the democrats would like to focus on trump blame him for everything, he is channeling the old loving that it won't work.
11:03 am
look at this biden is underwater on all the big issues, inflation, gun violence, immigration, crime in the academy he owns these problems and voters know it, hillary has not gotten over her loss, when will the democrats get over hillary and how will they get over joe biden. the third hour of "varney" just getting started. >> can't keep this man away, sean duffy joined this is monday morning. what is your take on hillary. why is she suddenly appeared in public on two significant occasions, is she running. >> my take is your take i thought that was a great opening i completely agree i think more americans are yearning for the days of donald trump though take the orange hair in the mean
11:04 am
tweets. they'll take it all, let's go back to nakata b that is roaring we will have a secure border and put criminals in jail again will have american oil and gas. all things were great under donald trump and i think more americans are going to year end for that and hillary clinton completely off base with this read. if she could go for president again, i don't know she's so unlikable even the last couple of times she read her alleged victory speech had she won and now she doesn't have what it takes to visit nate with the hearts and souls of the american voter. stuart: just suppose there was a rematch in 2024 hillary versus donald trump, who you think would win. >> i think donald trump is in a pole position. i love the president, you know that there is some issues with the personality side the next election will be about policies
11:05 am
and results and donald trump delivers on that, a major swath to the american voter working class blue-collar truck driving americans and they know donald trump is fighting for them and they don't like the progressive policies that cater to the woke elitist on the coast that is not most of america i think trump is in a great position, i think he will run, you could have joe biden and trump matchup were hillary and trump matchup and going back to the future. stuart: on the show the last two hours we looked at the mover of the country, it seems to me rather depressed or sad, not necessarily angry but sad of what's coming down the pipe as the holiday season is upon us, would you agree with the characterization that were sad at the moment. >> the issues that we haven't faced a long time in my lifetime i haven't seen these issues rise in crime and inflation and open borders. i think people look at this and

say these problem should be that complicated but we have leaders that don't want to fix the problem, there cheering the problems on in creating policies that are fermenting these bad things that were so sour about, if you could go shopping for christmas and you can afford presents and you can't afford them and can't get them in under the christmas tree, that really sours people's mood on this time of year when it should be a joyous happy time and good drinks and good meals. stuart: i don't like being told that i should check the vaccination status of my holiday christmas guest. i don't like that, i'm not going to do it. thank you, think of her being with us. merry christmas. check the markets the selloff continues, it is not dramatic but we are down 1% for the dow, 300 points for the nasdaq, down 130 points, steve forbes joined

11:08 am
overall this invariant is not as deadly as the previous ones, you get the politicians reacting as if it's a disaster, bubonic plague and people don't want to go back to what we had in early 2020 it is not necessary to do that. you don't need massive lockdowns and everyone wearing masks everywhere and policing everybody, they worry about the reaction to the variant not the variant itself. omicron variant itself. you raise a good point, covid is not the bubonic plague. the death rate from copan were 50%, 70% for the black plague a few centuries ago that you would have grounds for massive lockdowns and vaccine mandates and everything else. it is not like that, is it. would you agree with this we have to learn to live with this particular condition, it's never going to disappear we have to learn to live with it, the sooner we live with it the better off we will be.
