12:17 pm
to hillary clinton. thank you for joining us. i'm going to start with you. to quote the president, former scandals and political posturing. you saw neil cavuto your world this past week, he had patricia smith on the mother of sean smith who was killed in the attack in benghazi. i again with this question and it's a quote from her in reference to her son, she says the president, he is wrong. my son is dead, how could that be phony? richard? >> look. everybody's heart goes out to somebody like her. no question about it. he is not saying anything about what the circumstances were around her son's death. what the president is saying that the benghazi experience has been investigated by
12:18 pm
bipartisan, frankly mainly republican groups, plenty of congressional committees have looked into it run by republicans. so far there has not been a single fact that has come forward to link the president or anything he did or should have done with what happened in benghazi. it's just like with the irs, we've had tons and tons of hearings and investigation. not been a single fact to link anything that happened with the irs with anybody from the president on down in the white house. that is what makes it phony. you can show the flames on the screen but it doesn't make what happened there anything attributable to president obama. >> heather: the president is not specifying what he believed to be phony. so let's talk about that the irs. let's move it to that. the irs scandal has affected a lot of americans. how should we feel when hear
12:19 pm
the president pivoting on the economy on some accounts about the 14th time he has done that when he doesn't want to address other issues? >> you hit the key. when you are having trouble in one area, you try to change the subject. some presidents go overseas, like this presidential did going to africa. when we have sequestration in the united states. my son has an important job saving lives in washington and he has been furloughed while the president conducts a nonstop campaign. these aren't the scandals that are affected by them. not only mrs. smith but also tea party people that had their applications delayed and in some cases denied for political reasons so they continue be fully involved in the last campaign as liberal groups, there is nothing phony about them but there is a lot of phonyness going on
12:20 pm
in this town. >> heather: i think we would agree that we need to get people back working. we are in what year four of the worst recovery since world war ii. you heard the president speak on wednesday. he has many more speeches planned. have we heard anything knew in his speech that you found promising? >> here is what i heard that was new. i think democrats in attendance would take some sort of notion that the president is going to keep his eye on the ball. two years ago we really walked up to the line of defaulting on our debt. we're now talking about letting the government shutdown. we had an election last year on the question of spending priorities. the president was very clear about spending on infrastructure, on innovation and education.
12:21 pm
governor romney was clear that his agenda was cutting spending. that is where the debate was, the president one bief five million votes and democrats picked up seats in the senate and won in the house than across the board. that has been asked and answered by the public. one final thing. we had a controlled experiment. europe is looking to austerity and they would give their eye teeth in a second. austerity has taken them down the drain. u.s. economy is sluggish but thankfully we haven't gone the european way. >> heather: i have to give you the last word, cal. people have spoken. we have to talk about the poll numbers that are now plummeting for president obama? >> people are still speaking. president's praf8 rating, 50%. in april down to 41% in july. that is a significant drop.
12:22 pm
this approval among independents down to tap% this month. that is a serious problem for the president and democrats in general so people are still speaking, they don't like obamacare and that is what is leading up to the election. this phony shut down business, this is what the democrats do and i don't think it's going to work for the democrats like it worked in the clintonings. >> a lower percentage point of adults working today than when president obama took office. we'll see what happens. >> it's been 60 years tins the truce that ended the korean war. >> heather: to change the way we pay doctors in this country. the new guy is loaded with protein!

12:30 pm
quote, bedrock of stability in the region. >> heather: elizabeth, thank you. >> chris: switching gears, criticism in the way that doctors are paid sparking a new effort to change the system. right now medicare and most rely on doctors to determine what to pay for the work that they do. now some lawmakers are in washington are hoping to thank you kha. members of both parties sponsoring a bill that would reshape the withhold model. jim mcdormott is one of them. one of my first things that caught my attention, this has bipartisan support. you don't see a lot of that these days in washington. >> i think anybody that looks at the national health care system believes that we have to learn to control costs. we've got access of falling care act, but then you've got
12:31 pm
to figure out how to control the costs. that has been illusive over the last 30 or hop years. >> payment that doctors receive when they treat medicaid patients or medicare patients. >> when medicare started back in 1964, the doctors made it a point for them they want to be paid their usual and customary fee. that means they send in their fee and they expect the government to pay whatever they ask for. well, that has been a problem from the very beginning. the costs are going up and up. one of the things that congress did is to establish a committee called the review committee and that committee was to review each procedure and decide how much it should be paid. unfortunately they put under the ama, made up of 31
12:32 pm
specialists and other providers. they decide how much doctors can be paid. so it's really the doctors' negotiating with themselves how much they should pay. that simply has been too loose a system. we're trying to close it down. >> rick: anybody that would call you anti-doctor would be mistaken. you are a physician yourself? >> sure, i know the system in and out. i practiced medicine. i know how it works, but it simply is not sustainable. we have to begin to find a better way to look at how much a given procedure, how much time it takes and how much a doctor should be given for that amount of time of effort. >> rick: who should michael that call. if not the ama or doctors, who, the government? >> there should be -- what we're trying to do in this bill is set up an independent panel. there would be doctors on there because you need expertise about what
12:33 pm
something actually requires, but you have some people that have no financial interest in it. if you have someone for surgeons and one for the neurologists and one more the radiologists. they all have a financial interest in it. we want people that do not have a financial interest that are going to get more or less pay from what they decide on this committee. that is the only way you can get an independent committee that people understand the field and make reasonable judgments on what doctors ought to be paid. >> rick: i've reading response from the medical community and ama admits the system is flawed, but i just wonder what are you are going to run up against if you say the government is going to dictate how much doctors are going to get paid. do you think we're going to run the risk here of discouraging smart young men
12:34 pm
and women from entering the field of medicine? >> no. when we started this, i was in medical school in 1963 when medicare started. we were told this was going to be the end of medicine and socialized medicine when government got in the health care business. it's nonsense. medicare was a salvation for the doctors because it has been a steady source of payment for the care of the elderly of this country. it's never going to be -- there is going to be an argument. the doctor says it's worth hundred dollars, the government says $80. doctors will say i didn't get paid i was owed. at some point we need a negotiation, between the medical profession and the government how much we can tax the taxpayers and pay the doctors what they want.
12:35 pm
they can't be out independent of the negotiation. >> rick: what is the future of the bill? >> there is a small piece of it in the change that is being made in the sgr the sustained growth rate that is going through the congress right now. there is a small piece of it in there, whether we get the larger piece i don't know. something has to pass because we have to do something about the cost of healthcare in this country. one part is fees. we have to face it. >> rick: good to talk to you, sir. thanks very much for your time. >> heather: poorly understood loans that contributed to the housing market collapse, remember those? apparently they are making a comeback. sudden rise for adjustable rate mortgages and what can be done differently this time

12:41 pm
ended up on store awning below. she seems to be okay. and pope francis calling on the clergy to reach out to poor and needy. >> heather: it is back. adjustable rate mortgage. it virtually disappeared after the housing crash largely because it was widening interest rates rather than fixed rate mortgages that caused a lot of homeowners to default on their payments. now with real estate rebounding and home prices rising, adjustable rate mortgages are making a comeback. is history due to repeat itself? scott is is a financial analyst and founder of help save good to see you. adjustable rate mortgages, they are getting popular again. at what cost? >> there is a huge cost.
12:42 pm
in fact adjustable rate mortgages now represent 16% of all mortgage applications out there. that is the highest level of june 2008. you are getting a lower interest rate than a fixed year mortgage. you can lock it in for five years, seven years, that rate could jump as much as 5%. that is going to dramatic increase your monthly payments, but it will allow you to get into a house you may not have been able to forward afford previously. >> heather: so there is a risk involved and people decide to go this route because they anticipate they will be making more money down the road and pay the higher interest rate or move out of the house. what are the reasons people go with the adjustable rate mortgages? >> adjustable rate mortgages have lower interest rates. it allows you to afford a home that might be more expensive. you are assuming that, if the rates rise in five or seven
12:43 pm
years, "a" you'll have more income. that is very risky assumption. you are also assuming that home prices are going to increase in value. that is what caused the financial collapse where people assumed my house is going increase in value. that is not always the case. >> heather: what if you can't afford mixed rate mortgage? >> you need to look at less expensive house. anyone who is considering these adjustable rate mortgages especially if they are on the fence whether they can afford the home they are repeated the risky behaviors. >> heather: are there any circumstances under which the adjustable rate mortgage works? >> if you plan to stay in the home say five years, then it might make sense to lock in the super low rate and leave before it starts to adjust. even in that case you are
12:44 pm
taking on risk. in who knows what can happen in five years. the best way if you have cash on hand to afford the entire home. you can lock in the low rated and take your cash and invest it somewhere else, say the stock market and earn a 6-7% return while paying 3% for the mortgage. >> heather: now this is happening. is history doomed to repeat itself? >> it is. you have to understand that interest rates are going to rise, ben bernanke is about to start this tapering program where it is going to slow down the bond buying back program. anyone looking to buy a home should be looking into the fixed rates especially if they are going to stay there long term. lock in the low rate. for every hundred thousand dollars of a loan 1% increase in that mortgage late is going add $50 a month to your
12:45 pm
payment. >> heather: you mentioned in terms of locking in the fixed rate you were just talking about, what do you need to do in order to prepare for that. before you go to the bank, what do you need? >> first off you have to look at your credit is in perfect condition and check your credit report. go to my fico report and check your score. make sure there are no errors. that could cause the score to decrease and "b" make sure you have your debt paid off. any debt on your credit report, the banks are going to look at that you are too risky to lend money to you. >> heather: what is the score you strive for? >> anything above 760 that will get you mortgage with the lowest interest rate that will save you money. >> heather: thanks, we appreciate it. >> rick: political scandal

12:53 pm
about cheating. question a lot of people, is sexting, which anthony weiner is alleged to have done cheating? is sexting cheating? >> absolutely. by boot camp standards, anything you do that takes the sexual energy out of your marriage and outside your marriage, we consider cheating whether it's pornography or strip clubs or even flirtation in the workplace and emotionally getting drained. all day long, you are snapping and coming home and we consider that is cheating. >> there is a pattern here. it's not like there is just one, he got caught and repented. we know that he has done it again even after saying, resigning from congress. i just wonder. >> rick: should people in relationships with a spouse or partner that makes a mistake but keeps doing it, should they truly believe that the partner is going to
