live. it every weeayrom 3:00 to 6:00 eastern time. we'll have another great tv show for you next week on fox business. in the meantime, >>. >> lou: hello everybody, thanks for being with us. predent obama and his staff defending his administration gainst three separate controversies and scandals that have forced the president to pivot from his presidentiil legacy. the benghazi cover-up and irs targeting conservatives and the justice department's extraordinary seizure of phone records of a.p. reporters. as a rsult. white house officials are spending their time doing damage control instead of working on the president's second term agenda. while the president said he wants to pass an immigration
bill before the summer but iighting of the costs over the gang of eight immigration plan and, of course, on the president's side, the scandals look as though they may well thwart his aspirations. heritageoundatn is allowg 11 illegal immigrants a pathway would cost over $6 trillion. conservative economists, however are taking the heritage foundation on and arguing with the report saying it doesn't take into account the economic benefits of immigration reform. today, we're bringing you both sides of that debate. we'll be talking to co-author of heritage study, a former congressional budget office and president of themerican action forum and he'll tell us why immigration reform will invigorate our economy. also cofounder of one of the
groups on the irs enemies' list. jenny beth harten. the author of a new study, robert rector, it's deja-vu all over ain. we can go back to 2007, kennedy, mccain and the heritage foundation with a study and the number was $2.5 trillion. >> right. $2.7 trillion. the analysis i did and everybody agrd with was only the retirement costs now i'm doing pre-retirement and post retiement and government is 40% big are. it's unbelievable and that is why this bill is going to cost a fortune. >> lou: i have not thought o it
the way you cast it between now and 2007 when immigration, comprehensive immigration reform legislation was rolled back. 40% bigger in just about six years. it's incredible. there is something else going on that is fast a nat go to me. as you put forward thistudy, cato, the americans for tax reform, i'm talking about strong vibrant voices. the club for growth, you go through it and americans for tax reform and the american action forum, doug's outfit, they say you are wrong and couldn't be wronger. he has numbers. instead of wt you are concluding your reported it
would reduce the deficit by2.5 trillion? >> i sent six months months on this report. the methodology is about 30 pages long. any person can look at my detail of my analysis. mr. egan has a press release of study he might do. it's very difficult t assess what he is talking about because it' so hidden and minimal. one tng i can say about that is his study basically concludes that an immigrant with an ph.d. and one with a fourth grade education has an equal effect of reducing the deficitn government. that is not only wrong but it's stupid. the reality that a high skilled immigrant, oneith a college
education pays about $30,0 more in taxes than the take in benefits. a low educated immigrant one with high school degree or less does exactly the opposite. though will take about $30,000 more in benefits than they pay in taxes. the essence of this bill is saying that it's going to take 11.5 million illegal immigrants that on average educati tenth grade and giving them access to 80 different welfare programs, obamacare which is gog to cost about $28 billion year for them and social security and medicaid and somehow those individuals are going to pay more in tas than they take out benefits. that is ludicrous. i have t to find a normal american that really believes an american with tenth grade
education ps more in taxes. in reality they will get about $4 in bfgs for every dollar they pay in taxes. overall the expenditures over the course of their lifetim will be over $9trillion. they are going to pay about $3 trillion in taxes. every kind of taxes they pay but the net cost to the u.s. taxpayer i about $6 trillion. about $120,000 for each upper class family. >> lou: there is something that hasn't changed since 2007. i do get an answer, if i a you a question. good talking with you. i had some other questions. cavuto tells me what to do. good to talk with you. our next guest says immigration reform could invigorate the economy. higher rate of growth, more money per person inhe workplace and budget reduction
benefits. we're alking about a lot of it. joining me is the former director of the budget office, douglas egan. good to have you here. you conservatives, you guys are a tough lot. you guys got a battle raging over your forecast. how it could be that all of you would go after your own version of reality that seemingly had been ki of settled? >> i don't think tre is internal battle as most conservatives believing in the power of markets and growth. heritage foundation has gotten a lot of kritd sivm. but what they nderstand immigration reform as potential that improves the quality of the llbor force, allows us to meet some of our growth needs. >> lou: robert rector and it is
your response to his response. here is robert. >> egan has numbers, in fact of what you are concludg in your report, he ss it would reduce the deficit by $2.5 trillion. >> i spent six months preparing this report. it's about 80 pages long. the appendix it desibes the methodology of what i did is over 30 pages long. anybody can loo in every detail of m analysis. mr. egan doesn't have a study or report. he has a press release about a study he might do. he has provided about a page and a half of information. >> lou: how do you respond to that? >> well, iay brevity is the soul of wit.
what we looked at was the difference between the typical immigration scenario and what the census called a high scenario. we reported the facts on labor force participation, higher than native born, business start-ups by immigrants, higher than the native born. then it's just arithmetic. >> lou: let me ask you something. what is the correlation between, college degrees and advanced degrees and employment levels. is there one? >> there is is no question as your education is up your unemployment go down a skills are at a premium. >> lou: so when you have 11 million immigrants, the number being used, and more than half of them don't have high school
degrees why does your confidence level rise so much? >here is the thing that the heritage study does. we have the 11 million and jumps to the conclusion that all 11 million will remain here when big chunk of themill not qualify for legal status. they will be low wage workers but when you look at the details they get high social security benefits. the system gives low benefits to low wage workers, high benefits to high wage workers. it's how they did it. >> lou: i love the way he puts you down for bei two pages and -- let me turn to another aspect of this. you think there will be fewer people that seek citizenship over the course of years ahead.
what is that number? >> the key her out of the 11 million there will be some that qualify for status and some who don't. if you have a felony or misdemeanors. we were predicated not on those folks, ours is predicated on the new immigration numbers and first te switching our system away fro family unification and toward economic merit. that is the key part of this bill. that should be the focus. >> loulet's get this big done and let's get rational? >> i wish honestly we could pick and choose on the issues. the reali is we have one bill and that is the bill we analyze. >> lou: it's tough for me, i've been doing this for a while -- i've covered this for decades. >> we have been here before.
>> lou: but i have a difficult time understanding where people get their numbers. i ve confidence of the numbers resictions nor the border advocates or bringing in 1 11 million illegal immigrants is e solution to adding population growth to the equation for economic growth. i don't think enough people are being honest enough. a lot of folks are arguing about here, is whether or not the only way to save the economy is to add a unch of people. you think that is an unfair statement? >> i think there are two things aut that. 11 million are already here. that is not who we are bringing in. native pop laying has a low birth rate. -- popution has a low birth rate. that is what we shoul choose. >> lou: douglas, thank youery
much. >> bill gates, harvard business professor gives us the crets of success in his new book. what y alec, for this mission i upgraded your smart phone. ♪ right. but the most important feature of all is... the capital one purchase eraser. i can redeem the double miles i earned with my venture card to erase recent travel purchases. d with a few clicks, this mission never happened. uh, what's this button do?

♪ >>. >> lou: new report by the institute of energy research exposing the obama's administration outrageous waste on the alternate energy loa program. this is amazing. you hear the headlin but when you look at the study, the department of energy has spent nearly $26 billion since 2009 on two loan guarantee projects that have created just under 2300 jobs.
the staff did the math for me and told me it works out to a cost $11.5 million a job. at some point peoe have got to figure out what they are doing down there, don't you think? former vice president al gore saying obama admistration should approve the keystone pipeline. it made no difference if it came from eradicate to like less friendly nations like venezuela. there is no such thing assets cal oil and only dirty oil and dirt yes, sir oil. he is well known user of private jets that are most energy efficient way of traveling around the world. it emits at least00 pounds of carbon dioxide compared to 180

understand your strengths and weaknesses and do homework on jobs and which jobs are a good fit. that sounds simmle, but most people struggle to do one or more of those things. lou: as you look at the road map, as kaplan puts it to reaching your potential, it's a simple world in terms of career, you measured by money. the feedback is straightforward? >> no. i ud to give this talk. i still havvn't met a business person yet that doesn't become scessful by adding value to a customer or a client. you've got to add value. you've got to build distinctive. you've got to be great at certain tngs. you can make money for a year or
two but not over a sustainable period of time. and that is certainly true of wall street. it's true of everyone out there, what i'm trying to say to people rather than listening to what are what your friends are saying rathe add jobs and add value anmoney will follow. >> lou: that is one of expressions i use, talking with my colleagues, we're adding value to the air. that is good advice. it's a pretty good idea. ro kaplan's book, we recommend highl it's available in book stores and online now. it's highly rank order amazon. we'll continue to flok this book mercilessly. good to have you with us.

>>. >> lou: we've been talking about foreign policy but a big week for immigration reform. they will begin a debate of amendments to the immigration bill this thursda and it's going to be dramatic. republican senator marco rubio he is the face of the gang of eight. it's really quite remarkable that he became the face of bipartisan democratically led effort. there it is. these are the faces of opposition. the gangbusters, if you will. demint is number one because he is the president of the heritage foundation and today theenior research fellow. robert rector shows that
legalizing 11 million immigrants will cost taxpayers a net $6. trillion! i mean, that is over the coming decade. that is net number. why? according to hetage tangling the typical illegal immigrant household is receiving right now $14,000 a year. and even more in government payments that could jump by their estimates to $30,000 if the gang of eight plan becomes law. more than double heritage ia force. back in 2007 the last time congress debated reeorm, they
produced an analysis that amnesty would cost $2.6 trillion. er the next several decades. there is going to be great weight given to this study. they are going to create oosition. the club for growth and americans for tax reform, two conservative outfits,umping in to criticize the heritage study but they usually win these conservative battles. this is congressman, bob goodlatte they are in such a rush to pass the bill that some are drawing compare songs to the cram down of obamacare, you rember that which is clearly not an example of good government practe. but he is taking a sensible
approach to immigration legislation. he has introduced two smaller measures, important but smaller measures. one, an agricultural guest worker program. the other woulde the e-verify system ich requires employers to verify through the government system whether or not a prospective employee is legal and qualified for that job. he says headlight introduce other measures in the weeks ahead. is the incrementalist and thoughtful approach in contrast to others what would call a cram down effort on the part of president. jeff sessions of alabama, ranking republican on the senate budget committee. the most vocal critic. he says the path for citizenship
for 11 million illegal immigrants is pure bull. he has an impressive amount of research to support his position. according to sessions and the staff of the repubcan staff of the senate budget committee, the gang of eight plan wouldn't give legal statuso 11 million but more than 32 million immigrants. an additional 25 million visas in his judgment, that is 25 million. i'm so neat, usually. i was kidding about being neat. visas, 25 million of them. it would be granted in hhs view to non-immigrants and now we know that the senator's feeling because of the mounting
opposition to the gang of eight plan. he is starting, reib reib is saying, why rush it? why not make sensible judgments? the question in all of this given the record of this administration and this congress and senate, will the facts matter at all to them? we'll find out. >> obama administration has an enemies' list, conservatives under attack by the irs. jenny the cofounder of the tea jenny the cofounder of the tea party patriots joins us n all stations come over to mission a for a final go. this is for real this time. step seven point two one two. rify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. the most innovative software on the planet...
martin. good to have you. you are going to be at the hearing to done by dave camp this friday investigating the internal revenue service's political targeting. were i aware, did you suspect that this is what the irs was doing to you and your organization? >> yeah, we suspected it for well over a year. thank you for having me on. in 2012 at the beginning of the year we got these crazy letters from the irs. they were asking questions about the facebook pts and emails, who we sent press releases to, who in the media we talked to. it didn't have anything to do whether or not we were accounting at a c-4 or 501-c organization.
it's dtressing behavior on the part of irs. >> lou: targeng tea party organizations, those that are invold -- i mean the list of those tgeted here are conservative. there is no doubt about it. i would be surprised to know as you were delayed i trying to win your 501-c four and three exemptions is that the irs in january of this year, january of this year and first lady made the official announcement on january 18th that the organization go for action group the president's personal political army has been approved for 501-c status. how does it make you feel? >> we wondered about tt. people around the country have asked questions about it. we saw that was happening that was organized for america.
none of these tea party groups is still, the irs is still stringing us along. it's ridiculous. i expected tea party groups and patriot groups, i'm glad to see the tuth is coming out. i was scked to see that they actually said they were looking fo people that were going to educate on the constitution and ll of rights. since when is that a reason to raise a red flag? >> lou: since when is it appropriate to criticize any agency of this government, period? jenny, we look forward as you atend the hearing. dave camp isakingertain that the american people know what is happening with their government. that will be nice for a change. thank you very much. jenny beth martin. up next, the advertising industry has gone viral.

executive in television news. i wod say in television period certainly in the news media than roger ailes. he is feared and respected. gives us a sensef the character that he reveals as you take on his biography. >> i spent close to a year with him in meetings and traveling in social situations. i was just ver surised how down to earth he is. he is a guy from small town in ohio. he is sophisticated and center of american politics and nixon administration and center of the media. he became the kind of blunt, attitude of a small town america which i relate to because i grew up in a town pretty much like his -- pontiac, michigan. he is from warren, ohio.
