tv   Cavuto  FOX Business  July 30, 2013 8:00pm-9:01pm EDT

8:00 pm
neil: this just in, i just saw pigs flying, i just saw something i never thought i would, president obama wants to cut, cut corporate taxes, and further, he thinks it is going to create a windfall. i am neil cavuto, and ronald reagan he is not, but -- he is figuring tax cuts generate revenue. well kind of, because to make sure he is coupling rate cuts with what he calls one time hits on overseas earnings and slowing rates, such measures don't come
8:01 pm
close to playing the new jobs and other domestic new jobs that he is pushing. i say, what the buck? is it the same barack obama who railed against corporate tax breaks any of sort. well, i'm take it. but first, since we talk about ronald reagan, may i suggestion we verify this president wants to spend that money before it comes in, nothing new there. we go slow from here, but a start, i president who sees wisdom of cutting taxes, for now, i say, here, here, enter my friend patrick buchanan who says not so fast. >> i knew ronald reagan, he was a friend of mine, and president obama is no renald reagan. neil: touche. >> you are right, if barack
8:02 pm
obama believes as he said, that cutting corporate taxes really will increase revenue, it will make us more competitive. and it will create jobs, why don't you just go ahead and do it with the republican. i'm sure they would go along. he puts in here this spending increase, which he knows very well he is not going to get. and then he goes upside republican's head and said they are guilty of distractions and feeding on phony 6 scandals. i do not understand what message he is trying to send because they are in conflict. neil: when push has come to shove. when recovery was looking dicey. he seemed to recognize that there are times you don't entertain doing that, he changed his mind on upper income. but he seems to see the wi wisd,
8:03 pm
partially, of cutting taxes for corporation. >> i think he does see the benefit. and also, his economy advisors tell him, we have corporate income takes rate 35%, which is number one or number two in the civilized world. it means a lot of companies don't like to come from overseas, and locate here. so why don't we cut them, and maybe we would be more competitive just like for example in tennessee. just like foreigner bring nissan and volkswagen plant to tennessee rather than illinois. i think he does get it. but ideology holds him back, he has to give nancy pelosi and reid, something he thinks for a big deal, therefore he gets no deal. neil: i think it will be hard to get a dial out of this, and i also think this headlines don't tell the whole story.
8:04 pm
a lot of those companies could pay more taxes than now, but leaving that aside, this is an open salvo to republicans, what do they say or do some response? >> i think that republicans should say, you know mr. president, you have good ideas on taxes, on corporate tax rate, it needs too be reformed, we need klauer corporate tax -- need lower corporate tax rate, and we agree it would create jobs if we disagree on spending why not get together and work on corporate income tax reform that you are talking about, and maybe we can getting it and get something done. -- get together and get something done, like the immigration bill, why not, if they agree we have to have border security they have a good agreement, pass that, and put amnesty off for another time. then you can get something and obama would get something, this the republicans would get somebody. but he puts up these deals and
8:05 pm
gives you a poison pill, and republicans say we will not take it. neil: they are in lagy heads here -- loggerheads here. >> i think it is what he think ising, he has some economists. when i came to journal eu678 in 196ism in 1962, jaak kennedy, td he will increase revenues. i got my editorial, saying he is right. he cut the top tax rate from 92 to 70s, and it got through under johnson it was beneficial. neil: true. >> democrats believed in these things. neil: i replayed that speech he gave froo oval office on that issue. and a lot of people cannot believe it they thought we were lip-synching it. >> i was around then, i'm like you. neil: i do not realize how old you are.
8:06 pm
i'm kidding. no matter what hat says, to hear much of media tell us, the grand bargain is on. and price our o pressure on repo put game on to accept the cutss@ they wanted or look like hypocrites. it is interesting, the way i saw this portrayed brent to your point. just like what are the republicans going to do? >> well, i can't add to it. what pat said, but for, number one. the media are going to play this as some grand concession on the part of barack obama. in fact, barack obama ran for reelection on this. ly promised a cut in the corporate tax rate. do we not remember that? he did not say, i'll cut corporate tax rates in return
8:07 pm
for xyz, so, there is no need to make a bargain. pat is right, if you believe it, promised it do it do not make deals. this is not a job creator, this is a net tax increase on businesses, jobs will not be created, they will be created by the government, someone needs to ask the question, which is, done we already try this? we'll call it the stimulus, how did that work out for you. here is one i like, a bargain, announced as a bargain, if we reach a bargain we have reached an agreement. whether a bargain is announced. there is no bargain, there is no agreement. they are projecting this as an agreement so if republicans say no it looks like they walked away from a dell they made. this is not the first time they have done it remember religious
8:08 pm
mandate, catholic church said no, so obama administration reviewed it and said we had reached an accommodation, and catholic church said that is interesting but we did not agree to anything. that fine, let them do it. neil: media says -- you hit nail on head again. that the media then accept its and from the word that -- the president's word he has been the game changer, offering something he can say or will say, is something that republicans already wanted and he can go to media and say i tried. nothing worked. that will be his strategy going forward. that i offered them you know, an olive branch they stock it back in my eye. neileye. >> he said, that "fast and furious" is a phony scandal, and an american border agent died, and ben been is a phony scandal, and 4 americans died, and no one in press calls him out on that?
8:09 pm
this is reprehensible. neil: brent amazing good to have you back. >> all right remember that job you applied for but you never got. what if i told you because the guy interviewing you was using a fbi database, that had everything wrong. to look for the best possible price maybe even better than you expected. it's all part of our goal to execute your trade in one secd. i'm derrick chan ofidelity investments. our one-second trade execution is one more innovative reaso serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you opean account.

it's time to build a better enterprise. together. neil: i thought you killed it in the job interview. you stayed positive, and stayed alert, you left office thinking you had that job in the bag. only to discover you were bad. courtesy of an fbi file that interviewer had on you, that had it all wrong. it is happening more than you think. fbi dataa fraught with errors and rarely updated. to the judge. what do you think? >> i'm livid, we have reached a stage in our society, congress authorized fbi is sell its services to private entities, and so for a large category of nonfederal jobs, state, local,
8:12 pm
and many private, congress permits those industriis to go to fbi for background safes, that is problem number one, constitutiostitution does not ae sale of federal services. when fbi does this, it often makes mistake, because magnitude of job involved. when you or i make a mistake and somebody suffers for it, we can be sued. but not the fbi, if they look at wrong database, and you don't get a job because of that, can you sue the fbi? no. you could sue that person unless they work for the federal government. neil: i see. >> then you can't sue them. neil: with later on dated bad info. >> yes. if i was going to hire you and you rejected me because of later
8:13 pm
on dated or inact rat inaccurac, and a lost income because of that, i can sue you, but not from the fbi. we're not talking about wrongfully arresting somebody, we're talking about relying on dated or inaccuracies information. and in fairness to the fbi agencies some are my friends, they don't like doing this. >> what do they rely on that is wrong. if you had charges brought up against you but later exonerated they might have just charges. >> correct, if you have charges brought up against you, and you were exonerated and the judg expunged record. and so you will say under oath i was never charged for the crime. and potential employer will say, i have a record from fbi that
8:14 pm
said you were charged. and therefore i am going t fire you because you lied to me. neil: i wonder when people are turned down for job, how much is based on faulty credit report information faulty fbi report information, and they never know, they just know they done get the job. >> i on't think the answer is knowable. neil: but you know everything. >> there little litigation over this, the potential employee. >> you will never say you got it off a fbi report. >> correct, and the person who did not get the job will never know why. in the rare case when there is litigation, and you are forced under oath to answer questions, you will say what happened. i have been subject of fbi investigations. neil: why am i not surprised?
8:15 pm
>> to be appointed to the bench, that is type of investigation that to bfbi is familiar with,. neil: did you get to see what they had on you? >> i did. but massive numbers of investigations they don't like doing, it is a buck in pocket of their bosses paid for by company that hired fbi to do it, mistakes gal or. neil: interesting, you did make to judge. >> i saw that report, i still got the gig. neil: best selling author, ub aruber lawyer, judge et al judge napolitano. >> do you think he is a dope? i bet you he leaves baseball and sill set for life.

neil: well not a bad deal if you can get it, alex rodriguez stands to make a killing even if baseball fires him, and suspends him, how about $60 million to make him go away. here to make sense. sport agent executive james, a cool name. explain how that works, if you are getting thrown out for you know, using steroids or whatever. you still collect 60 million. >> you start with fact that these contracts are almost 100% guaranteed with limited exception, one is using illegal drugs, high would be suspended, then come back and collect remainder of his contract. neil: his contract with yankies would allow him to come back then, what if yankees don't want
8:20 pm
you back. >> they don't have latitude to do that, only the commissioner does. neil: one way or other he will get a lot of money, he will get it. >> unless they fire him, an suss suspend him for during a of the contract. neil: elis ha selig has a fusir option, you challenge me, i will ban you for life. >> he is reportedly doing is using integrity of game clause in collective bargaining agreement. if you do anything to undermine the integrity of the sport, he can say you are fired. in which case a-rod would not collect a penny. neil: i always believe that everyone has a chance to fight a charge, this is whether you assume he is guilty or not, he
8:21 pm
is not given an opportunity to challenge. he is just, dead meat. >> like in a lot of sports, if commissioner, they have rights, sometimes absolute. @% if they fire you, can challenge that in federal court. but with respect to major league baseball your rights end if you undermine the integrity of the sport. neil: that would assume in this case, a-rod admits use of the drugs? >> not necessarily, commissioner can say, have you not admitted. but i think you do it. neil: is that fair? i know what you are saying, it does not strike me as fair. >> it is not. neil: okay i'm saying he has nod admitted to using the substances and baseball commissioner saying, i just know you used them, and your heiney is fried for life. >> he will say here is the evidence we have against you, here is my decision, you are fired, what alex rodriguez does
8:22 pm
he americans off to federal court and -- he marches off to federal court and challenges it. >> how up hill battle is that? >> it has been done, some won. neil: how do you think it will work out? most common scenario i see, is that. you know, he is out for next year and a half, gets a chance to come bark collects tens of millions life is good. >> i think that how it playsous, i think that commissioner will use leverage of lifetime ban to get him to capitulate, this year and next, and alex rodriguez will comeback and collect the remainder of his contract. neil: if you are yankees and you agree to this ban, you say, we don't have to pay, because, this is really egregious. >> yankees do not have that latitude. neil: are conttacts written in a
8:23 pm
way even if you admit to or accept a ban you the team still have to pay, said drug user? >> once you come back from suspension, absolutely. if he comes back, he has 3 years remaining on his contract, yankees are still cob gate obli. neil: even though they would not want him back. >> absolutely not, he is a 40-year-old player, and has been deteriorating. neil: you remember when he would be next home run king, what happened? >> age, and reportedly, the ill effects of steroids. neil: wow. >> you take a risk. neil: what do you tell your own clients these days? >> you make sure they understand number one the rules and the risks in terms of take illegal drugs, players think that risk is worth taking because contracts are guaranteed. but you have to explain, times

neil: can we see that again? a new graphic, health care law, escalating laws are a big deal when they warn their own -- warn warrant their own independent fox news alerts. commissioner, one word, yikes. >> when you have guarantee issue, and eliminate under writes and increase benefits, you will see increased costs 92 this.neil: this goes beyond, whs going on? >> there is an increasing cost all of the time with increasing
8:28 pm
utilization. but now is with the new policies that are issued under the affordable care act there will be 30 to 40% rate increases for individuals, for small businesses that is 5 to 20%. neil: we were told to be patient, this levels out. when it is up and running the premium increases will reverse, stabilize, life will be good, take a chill pill, what do you think? >> that is a big assumption. there are a lot of unknowns. i think it is clear whether you see increase benefits, and you eliminate underwriting and tell people, regardless of preexisting conditions they will be ga guaranteed healthcare poly that will be disruptive to marketplace, that is what we're seeing. neil: why is that a surprise? i remember covering this whole

8:32 pm
financial services regulation bill that has grown into a huge -- that costly, when they wrote it, they said it won't cost much 992. neil: david maybe they are more cleaver than we think -- clever than we think, they wanted to push at the time they were pushing this that became law, this idea single pay system they dropped with their hope being that would happen, what you are outlining, that is where we might go. >> >> some people may have recognized that as a strategy. but i think you are giving them tto much credit. i think it is chaos going on in drafting process, remembered onty of obama carry bill was add machine tration did not lay down a proposal they waited for congress to write it. it came out of nancy pelosi out of the ways and means committee. that is not the way to make decent legislation, it has thousands of quirks, each

8:48 pm
matching. to identify potential deceased farmers that receive payments, so, they in a sense got a head start, and made changes in program. this year, whether for our newly issued report, we added 2 other agents under usda, and found they made the same progress. >> i can understand the way that bureaucracies work. but you know, you hear of you know, drug prescription written to the patients who had long died by doctors who had long since died. but there was an effort made to get that money back, but it is easier said than done, right? i1 have you offered the deceased farmers, i agency has to reach out, and do due diligence to determine whether the payment was proper. and then once they make that
8:49 pm
determination, then they need to follow-up and see if they could recover the funds, about a third of the dollar that one of agent identified has been recovered. and they are working on, that but it is a difficult matter, 1 the payment are out the door. neil: what if a spouse or child of said diseases farmer carbs that check, if they committed a crime in. >> they are held liable, if it did determined that payment was improper the funs have to be returned back. neil: wow. dan thank you. we appreciate it. >> dan garcia. >> all right, think anthony weiner is the most di despicable politic is alive, this guy one upped him, mayor touchy and feely, very costly.
