United States, Senate, House Of Representatives discussed on The World Next Week


We oughta make it s convenient for them as we possibly can as safe for them as possible as we possibly can and I do believe. That ought to be in this bill that's being negotiated. Now, we can say. To Miss mecom. Okay. If this is what you want. You get it when there's enough money put here. US to have a much and put the procedure. And that way the American people see exactly who is trying to subvert. This democracy. I, think that is a much more serious issues than suppressing the vote spreading democracy. That's what's taking place you. Will thank you very much. I guess electorally also probably can anticipate that we may not have an answer. The evening of the election or even the next day that this may be a prolonged. Period of of counting votes and assessing. The situation in that may be fraught as well. But You know a lot for us to be worrying about. Next question. please. We will take our next question from cal Barron. Hello representatives. This is Khalil buried invest. America. I'm also good friends with Yobe, the Chief Staff. Democrats in the House of Representatives are also up for the vote. This. November. I'd like to know, and if you could share with the community, what is the argument that you and Speaker Pelosi and your leadership team are making with regards to you or record? What are the accomplishments that you're laying out in your pronouns? As. A as a house of Representatives. A. When it comes to vote it. I think that each Congress? Have to be very. In tune. With what? Displacement placement the constituents in their on congressional districts. I tell people all the time. The first congressional. District of South Carolina. splits eight. Six counties. But the sixth congressional district. That's me that kind of name. We Democrats. I cannot get elected. And Joe Kernan has pau. Although six counts and he could not get elected in my pot. Six counts. That's just the way it is. So I think that when we lay out a national of proposals, we have to keep in mind that. People have. To be. Free. To for their constituents and advocate that consistent much now. When you look at the? Whole. Oh you have to do is look at the bills. We just did the justice released an that. We passed in the house. And the Democrats passed it. We all hold that out to the American people. Are doing what? In fact, I, saw a number saying nine percent. Of the American people faint that something is Amiss with law enforcement in this country and we fixed that. I don't know of anybody who doesn't leave that we outlawed choke goals. At a time of one, hundred, thirty pounds, young men who timid. Gets choked. To death. And the next day, it'd be video of two or three offices, mimic and his death, a hundred and thirty pound young man. Pleaded for his life and stole t well sticky, and they're laughing about the next day, ninety percent of the American people think about that, and Democrats just did something about it and is now being held up in the Senate Mitch McConnell that to me is a man accomplishment. Impasse. is, appropriation. Bills. That up to be passively past he rose act. Look at the Heroes Act. If. Miss mccomb, put that on the floor. Make it would pass and state and local governments would be checking jail. You number it's going to happen. This look must be fun them. The they came with the plan with no money for state and local governments. But to bit in dollars to build an. FBI. Bill. And I forgot how much they put in their SORTA business people you get one hundred percent tax deduction for the business munches. That's what's in this bill coming at funded, Republicans. So what we're GONNA do is lay out to the American people she. Is What's in the legislation Mia Passan and just remember. Democrats control one third of the process. That's the house. Republicans pundits on the Senate. The Republican control, US. Divine House, they got two thirds and we got one third and we'd be loud these proposals. These bills should be ready to pass the appropriations bills justice infamous. I'm just talking about the big bills that. The headlines then I think the American people will see what it is while be proud of what we've done. and. The. Compare that to what these other guys up opposing. Don't understand. Why We will. Not. Fund. Unemployment. Insurance. To. People. Who aren't working? So they can take care of their children, the childcare centers of clothes, and they got to go and find ways they take their children if they happen to be an essential worker. And understand US why they don't have food stamps for poor people, but you can have a business lunch deduction tax deduction. For business people. Understand that. and. That's the kind of stuff going out to the American people going into this election, so they can compare. With care. And do what's necessary. To preserve this democracy. I think we got time for a couple more questions were great to have this time with you obviously. So much important work that you're doing on on the hill and such challenging times, but take another question..

Coming up next
