"Hi, Mike. I actually think that monkeypox has actually a better chance of becoming president than basically Liz Cheney. I can't disagree with you, sir. I'm quickly, I'm trying to get as many people out here as I can, Debbie, and Owensboro, Kentucky. Hey Debbie, near Louisville. Who's got a better shot of becoming a presidential candidate? I mean, Louisville, Kentucky, I'm sorry. That's okay, little. Oh, yes. A pet brother Ted nugent. Ted news. Well, listen, that's a real Canada, but you get how about how about Kid Rock? Jerry and Clearwater, Jerry, who do you like is a better selection than Liz Cheney? I was gonna say anybody, but I had to have the perfect candidate. She's turning 35. She'll be eligible to be elected. I knew you were going to say that. When you said she's turning 35, AOC, the former bartender. Oh yeah. But listen, seriously, let's look at that for a moment. Between the two of them, all kidding aside, doesn't Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have more credibility and bona fides, at least from the left than Liz Cheney does from the right? Absolutely. Absolutely. Good to hear from you. Thank you, Bradley, and Oklahoma final vote as to who has a better chance of being the GOP nominee than Liz Cheney. Bradley, you've got the final vote. Sir being from Oklahoma in a comedian. I'll go with Joe Exotic. Joe Exotic. Free Joe Exotic 'cause he's still in jail, right? I believe so, yeah. Got a good representation of my home state, but then again, I think he's got a better chance than Liz Cheney.

AOC and Democrats Promote Murder, Not Abortion Rights
"Alexandria, Ocasio-Cortez, is the fakest politician ever. These people are just, they're toxic women, man. They're toxic women. She's protesting at the capitol steps to promote murder. Stop saying abort murder. They're promoting murder. I don't want to hear anybody say anything other than promoting murder. The life of the child, I made a life of the parent that's not technically an abortion. They may list it as an abortion, but that's not an abortion. That is a medical procedure to preserve the life of the mother those procedures will be done, whether you can send to it or not. Because they have an obligation to protect the life to protect life. So let me give you an example. If somehow you were having a, you had a bullet in your intestine, right? Lifesaving measures, they are going to perform surgery on you to save your life. You don't get to make an election. You don't get to say, okay, you know what? I really want to keep that bullet in there and I want to die right here at the hospital. That's not going to happen. This is not like if vasectomy, where you say, you know what, I'm going to set an appointment, and I'm going to go in and get a vasectomy. These are two different things. An abortion is that I'm going to set an appointment, and I'm going to go in and I'm going to kill my baby. That's what this is.
AOC Brags About Voting Down Bill That Would Protect Justices
"So yesterday the House passed this bill, I'm fascinated by the 27 Democrats who voted no. In fact, the Democrats who voted no include as I'm sure you can imagine the squad. AOC and Rashida Tlaib and all those nut cases that are these far, far left wild eyed kooky loony radicals. Do you know that AOC bragged about blocking the bill? Bragged about it. Now, I can promise you that congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets protection. Maybe around the clock, I don't know. I don't know how it works. I know that 24/7 protection is afforded to some members of the executive and legislative branches. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a video to Instagram Saturday about initially blocking the bill. And she ultimately voted to block it in the end too. Well, sure this. She said in the video, I wake up this morning and I start to hear murmurs that there's going to be an attempt to pass the Supreme Court supplemental protection bill the day after gun safety legislation for schools and kids and people is stalled. So we can pass protections for us and hear easily right, but we can't protect past protections for everyday people, I think not.
Megyn Kelly: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is a One-Trick Pony
Axios: AOC, Squad Politics Backfire
"Axios inside the beltway publication I read every morning kind of gets me and gives me an idea of what the mainstream media and what the beltway folks are talking about. You know, whether they're talking about Ukraine and Russia or I don't know, even Henry the 6th in Churchill. Here's actually the hard left politics of representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the so called squad reports axios once a dominant theme for a vast amount of elected Democrats is backfiring big time on the party in power, top Democrats tell us. The latest sign of the backlash was the landslide recall this week of three San Francisco school board members. Who were criticized for prioritizing issues like the renaming of 44 public schools, I can not get over it, including ones honoring George, Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
AOC Mocked for Catching COVID After Maskless Miami Jaunt
"Of text messages on the my pillow text line about AOC getting COVID after being photographed partying maskless in the state of Florida. Let me just read some of them. Mike, what will AOC be given? Remdesivir? Ivermectin? Hydroxychloroquine and zinc? Here's another one. Well, maybe AOC will use her sick time to dream about how beautiful it's gonna be when Trump finishes draining the swamp. Here's a kind of a nasty one. Alexandria Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a double minded double standard irritatingly awful woman. Who deserves only what she wants for Republicans. Nobody deserves COVID. I hope she recovers and has an easy time like the vast majority of people are doing. But I'm sure AOC has spouted the talking point. We've had over 800,000 people in America die of COVID. Well, evidently, that's not true either.
Jen Psaki Breaks With Progressives on Smash-and-Grab Robberies: 'We Don't Agree'
"Is wrong. This crime surge is happening and we must not look the other way. Here was Jen Psaki yesterday in this exchange with Fox News channels Jackie Heinrich. Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot appeared to pass the blame on to retailers for these smashing grads saying that she's disappointed that these stores are not for the security officers who plays them working cameras and chaining up Cayenne bags, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, congresswoman said earlier this week also that she doubted allegations of organized retail thefts which you believed it was a Walgreens in California that cited it with a giant didn't back it up. Does the president believe that organized retail theft is really happening and should it be on the stores themselves to take action to prevent it? Well, we don't agree. And I think our actions and the work that we have had in working with the Justice Department, the FBI and federal law enforcement show that we take, we have seen some of these extremely video extremely disturbing videos showing retail thefts and both major retailers as well as state and local leaders like governor Newsom have identified this as a serious concern. We agree. That's the reason why we have sent additional support from the FBI, providing additional assistance. It's one of the reasons why we have also been the president and members of our administration have been long time advocates for supporting and funding the cops program something where the president proposed almost 300 million in additional assistance through his budget from what it was last year and why we have also provided money to get a Friday provided financial assistance to get money to hire 50 more police officers through the cops program that the president has championed in places like San Francisco and additional 20 officers in Los Angeles. So I think his record speaks for itself on this. We are going to continue to advocate for supporting programs like the cops program, ensuring that our law enforcement are good partners as we're working to address these retail thefts across the country. I'm no fan of the Biden administration. I'm no fan of The White House press secretary, but that's the right answer. It is. We got to stop this insanity of progressives trying to convince the country we shouldn't believe our line eyes. This crime wave the surge in crime is real.

"It sucks sometimes it's just really it sucks sometimes. It really does. You know, I started doing these TikTok threads on Sunday on my Twitter. And I did the first one because I really was just like, I need to put something up that's fun. I need to put something up that is not going to be a lightning rod for anything where I can just interact with people in a fun way and bring some joy. It has changed my entire countenance because now people look forward to the threat every Sunday and it's injected in a strange way just a buffer around me. And I know I have a little bit of time in digital space every Sunday that's joyful and peaceful and fun. And I had lost that. I really had lost that feeling of enjoying interacting with strangers. Online, which, you know, is such a big part of digital organizing. And I needed to figure out a way to bring that back into my platform into the ways that I interact naturally and that this ended up working. I had tried some other things before that weren't as successful. And this is seems to be working quite well for that purpose. And it kind of this sounds strange, but it's sort of like if the temperature has been rising on the stove around negative reactions to me all week, that Sunday thread. It is like a throwing water on a fire. It just puts it out completely. So I sort of have a reset every week now, because now it looks silly that you're like arguing in someone's mentions when people are like talking about dogs. You seem weird. So yeah, I mean, those are just like little tricks that I've started to pick up just to kind of be like, okay, how can I continue to exist in this space and not have it be so toxic to me that I have to build all of these different systems? And this trick is seem to work so far. I'm hoping it will continue because it's been really nice to be able to bring that part of digital interaction back in a safe way. That's a great tip. I hope people out there I'm going to use it. That's a great tip. And again, it sucks that you have to do these things, but I'm happy that you have systems in place that just protect your health, protect your wellness and continue to give you that outlet to do that community building and engaging that I know that you're so good at and that you love so much. So I'm thankful for that. Leslie, where can folks keep up with you online? You're doing amazing stuff all over the Internet. Work in folks keep up with you. You can just find me Leslie Mack MAC. You can search that that's my handle on Twitter. If you just search it in Google, you'll see my all the things, Facebook and my website, Leslie Mack dot com. You can find me there as well. Yeah, I want to thank you to Richard for calling this extra episode and thank you for all of your podcasts, but especially for this series you've been doing around this information because I think it's really allowed a lot of folks to put into context along trail of this work against disinformation. You know, we've watched it in this election cycle in a way that I think has woken people up to the realities and dangers of it. But it's really important to put it into the context that we've been screaming about this for almost a decade. More than a decade. And so, yeah, I mean, y'all could have just listened to black women from the first place. And you can start doing that now and we can avoid things like 45 and Marjorie Taylor green and all the other horrible things that have stemmed from digital spaces because frankly, somebody like MTG, the only way that they've built a platform is through digital space. Oh, absolutely. I was just talking about this how the problem really is is that we have for people like her, we have made it politically advantageous to do things like this online. It's not, you know, it's not like, oh, she sounds wild, like, get her out of here. Oh, she sounds wild. Amplify her. Amplify her, yes. And, you know, as bridger disclosed we both work out ultraviolet. But you know, one of the great things about the media guide is that it really has specific ways for people to not share disinformation. And one of the biggest culprits is the media. They share disinformation inadvertently and deliberately. In covering it and it's wild that they have not seen the light and understood their role in spreading it. Because if you're considered fake news, quote unquote by a portion of the population. And then you report on disinformation and in a specific way. You legitimize it really specifically with a specific audience. And I don't know what the answer is, but I'll say this when I was in journalism school clearly I did not become a journalist because I actually saw when I was in Jay school, I saw this as the future of journalism. I mean, it really scared me. I went to northwest university and this isn't the mid to late 90s. And I really I remember saying to my mom, I can't be in this industry. The track that this is on is leading in a really dangerous and scary place. And I don't think it's something that I could do for my career. I don't think it's something I could do. She was not thrilled. It was a lot of money. Anyway, but yeah, I just remember and it's silly now. I talk about those all the time and certainly age myself, but you know, you go to the computer lab to write your stories and stuff or the paper and people would bring magnets into the computer lab to swipe people's floppy disks so that their stories couldn't get it on time so that they could get the byline the next day. And I remember just being like, this is, these are these will be my colleagues. Yeah, this is not gonna be for me. And it's been wild sitting back outside of journalism and watching, you know, everything that I felt as a 19 year old come to pass. Every single thing I was like, this is going really itself. The idea of ethics were so Lucy goosey and not at all ethical. And I just was like, this is one of the best journalists of schools of the country and these are the people they've matriculated and this is the attitude that they have towards women towards black people towards marginalized folks towards poor people. I just, yeah, the reckoning has been long coming. And I think that the digital space has only added to that. Absolutely. And I think we see it in the way that folks are reporting about the AOC situation. I was really disgusted to see it sort of framed as almost like a cat bite or a spat between two female members of Congress, as opposed to a wider coordinated disinformation campaign that AOC is at the heart of this is not two women, beef and over a man or something, right? Like this is someone this is people making up making up lies about someone in a coordinated way to smear them for sharing their story. I was really dismayed to see it kind of framed as like a she said she said kind of thing. As opposed to disinformation. But that becomes a question, right? Why did anybody feel the need to discount AOC's account of what happened to her personally? That's the ultimate question. Is why was that something you felt you needed to do? And at the heart of that is that we go back to silencing of women of color and especially progressive radical women of color. And that's the ultimate goal. People will pay any price to do.

"I just thought to myself they got inside. It felt like my brain was able to have so many thoughts in that moment. So AOC never said that rioters were in her hallway. That's a claim she never made, but that didn't stop Nancy mace from tweeting, I'm two doors down from AOC and no insurrectionist stormed our hallway. Even though AOC never said they did. Now, in AOC's Instagram Live, she recounted hearing somebody bang on her office door, come into her office and say, where is she? At the time, she was afraid that rioters had found her, but she later realized this person was a capital police officer who was there to help her. Now, after this, we saw really ugly trends on Twitter like hashtag AOC lied and hashtag Alexandria Ocasio Smollett, comparing her to Jussie Smollett to suggest that she was making up her account. Despite it being corroborated by multiple people like representative Katie Porter and Bernie Sanders aide are a Raven. So this is actually a really good example of how disinformation works in real time. This complete distortion of what AOC said has become part of the public dialog, despite it being based on lies. After this, AOC tweeted, the sad thing about disinformation is that once the truth comes out, the damage has already been done. People have already been misled, radicalized and believe lies to the point where their hatred is brewed to violence. That's what led to the 6, and that's what's happening now. And you know what? She's right. After she bravely shared her story of what happened at the capitol and connected it to being a survivor of sexual assault, she faced a coordinated public disinformation campaign. And sadly, this is not an isolated thing for women of color in the public political eye. Leslie Mack is a prominent digital activist and organizer who I work with at ultraviolet, where we create resources to curb sexist racist disinformation, like our media guide that you can find on the show description. And sadly, Leslie really knows what it's like to face these kinds of attacks online. You're a longtime digital organizer, activist, someone who spends a lot of time making the world a better place via the Internet. How did you get into this work? Tell me about your role in this work. Yeah, my role as work started in the digital space in 20 14. I started organizing faith spaces online after I joined Twitter. I had been on Twitter for like 2008 or something, which seems like ages ago. And I had started doing some legislative organizing that way. We were working in New Jersey to ban the box and also some bail reform initiatives. And so a lot of that initial digital organizing work was around legislative work, which was really interesting. And at the time, a little cutting edge, not a lot of folks were doing it, but we kind of dipped our toes in and started organizing folks online. And then after Mike Brown was murdered, feminist Jones had kind of put this call out from Twitter to say, hey, would you be interested in hosting a vigil? And your city this week. And I was like, sure, I could do one in Philly. And I call that the moment that the full digital organizer that is Leslie Mack was born. So that's where I started out with organizing that first vigil of Philadelphia. The national moment of silence. And I guess I liked it because I just kept on going. Yeah, you're kind of a prolific digital organizer. You're someone who I feel is it was one of the sort of when I think about some of the foundational black feminists who were showing up online, I definitely think about you. And full disclosure, you and I worked together at ultraviolet. And so yesterday was kind of a long, wild day for folks who are online and in feminist spaces online because we saw AOC really being at the center of this coordinated right wing disinformation campaign against her after she really bravely shared her story about what happened in the insurrection on January 6th. And her own personal story as a survivor of sexual violence. And so my first question for you is, how do you see disinformation and abuse being linked? Well, they're linked on two levels. And I was talking about this with the yesterday, which is one is at the personal level, which is that abusers in our real lives, our personal lives use disinformation against us. So that tell us lies about ourselves about the world that nobody will love us. And that that's a tool that they utilize at the personal level. And what we're watching is public abusers, right? People that are abusing the system. People that are using people within it, using disinformation for that same purpose, which is to degrade denigrate and deny the experiences, real life experiences of marginalized people. So we're watching that play out with AOC. You know, she bravely not only shared her story, but she went personally one to one to the people, which I think this is such a digital story in and of itself that she took to IG live to have this hour long conversation. And the way I saw it play out. I didn't know she was live until I saw on Twitter. People were tweeting about it. And they were like, wow, AOC is doing XYZ. And I said, oh, let me go over to IG and watch her. So I was watching her and while that was happening, somebody was starting a Clubhouse room to talk about it to debrief it, shout out to Tracy corridor. And then as I was watching it, it said, oh, Katie Porter's going to be talking about this IG live on MSNBC shortly. So it was this moment of like, wow, all of this digital stuff was happening. It was pinging and creating waves all over the place. And then subsequently, that's what we watched was the abusers that AOC was naming in her IG live, namely, folks like Marjorie Taylor Greene and really all the insurrectionists that seditionists elected that supported the coup on January 6th. And they've subsequently now tried to discount her personal experience in this harrowing moment. And it's been wild to watch people just blatantly lie, you know, one of her fellow Congress Congress people said, oh, I'm two doors down from her. And there were no nobody in the hallway. And then we find out that the person evacuated before anything happened. The level of disinformation is really disturbing to watch in real time. Yeah, it is completely like a coordinated attack so you're talking about Nancy maids from South Carolina. So she tweeted yesterday, I'm two doors down from AOC and no insurrectionist stormed our hallway. But that day she herself tweeted on January 6th that she was being evacuated because of this threat. She described it as, quote, a nearby threat. She later did an interview I think on Good Morning America where she said that she was so frightened by what happened that she stayed overnight in her office. She was her motherly instance kicked in and that she was so afraid for her life that she was thinking about bringing a gun with her to Capitol Hill from now on because she was so afraid. And so that's how she talked about it right after it happened. And so it's very telling that now weeks later after AOC, essentially says the same thing that I was afraid for my life, somebody knocked on the door and I was afraid for my life. She's saying that didn't happen. And I think it's really interesting how you see the way that this is coordinated. You know, we saw another big account on the right, tweeting a mapped with arrows trying to indicate that AOC was not in the capital when folks stormed. And AOC herself replied and said, your arrows are wrong. And AOC had a really good tweet where she talked about the fact that disinformation, one of the ways that it plays out is that once it's out there in the public narrative, it doesn't matter if it's not based in reality or if it's an outright fabrication, that becomes part of the narrative for.

Last week, representative Paul gothar tweeted an anime video depiction of him killing his colleague, representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Now, this is pretty clearly unacceptable. It's against Twitter's terms of service, and if I tweeted a video of myself murdering a coworker, not only would I be fired, I'd probably be getting a visit from law enforcement. Twitter removed the tweet but did not go far off the platform. And after he was censured and stripped of his two committee assignments by a vote of 223 to two O 7 for tweeting the video, he retweeted it because he doesn't care. Women of color like AOC, they disproportionate levels of harassment, disinformation and threats online. And this kind of abuse impacts us all because we're not able to have a healthy functioning democracy unless everyone is able to fully participate. Let's revisit this episode that originally aired in February after AOC faced attacks online because she shared her experience of the insurrection. She really hear the toll that harassment takes on women of color in the public eye. If you were online at all last week, you probably saw representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used Instagram Live to get a harrowing account of what she experienced from inside the capitol complex during the insurrection on the capitol. In this account, she also shared that like so many of us, she is a survivor of sexual violence. Now this triggered a real time tsunami of disinformation. Right wing figures like representative Nancy mace and Jack wasabi. And others falsely accused AOC of not really being at the capitol at all or exaggerating her claims. So it's true while she was not in the main domed capitol building, that building that you think of when you picture the capital in your head. When rioters breached it, she also never claimed to be. She accurately said that she was in the canon House office building, which is part of the capital complex and is connected to the main building by tunnels. Here's what she said on Instagram.

I see this as a little long wouldn't play this, uh Go ahead and started. Okay. Let's start when you're ready. And we're gonna hear is how we We have woke. Politics meets sane thinking and and you can hear. Well, actually highlighted underscore for you. How l C Basically engages in the erasure of of femininity and what it means to be a female in talking about an abortion law that really only effects Females, and here you go. Well, I find Governor Abbott's comments disgusting and I think there's two fold one. I don't know if he is familiar with a menstruating person's body of up. He's not familiar with the men straight Ng person's body. Now Governor. Abbott is married, and he I think he has at least one daughter, So I'm pretty sure he's familiar, probably familiar. But immense trading person's body. Mentioning person, not the female. That person. Fact, I do know that he's not familiar with a woman with a female or menstruating persons. Again and you hear that, Nicole? She almost says a woman. He's not familiar to woman are female, Uh, menstruating person's body. It's like she she realized that she made the woke faux pas there by actually saying that only women Go through the cycle. And apparently can't do that's a full pot, because, as we know men also can get pregnant. Body Because if he did, he would know that you don't have six weeks. Is that quote unquote? Six weeks and I'm sorry. We have to break it down on, you know, Breakdown biology. Want one on national television? But in case no one has him formed him before in our life in his life. Six weeks. Pregnant means two weeks late for your period and two weeks later on your period for any person, any person with a menstrual cycle. Any person with the menstrual cycle have I know and I don't.

Hate to put you on the spot. I know you're putting me on the spot, and obviously I have not, but, um, but I think what's more funny here is that she went into this interview. Saying, I'm going to make a point not to say female or woman or whatever. And she almost slipped up three times to say the correcting yourself as a person. She doubled down on Twitter. So everyone pointed this interview out and said, Listen, Come on, You get it. You're being ridiculous. Here. Just say females right you talk about. It's a law that affects females, right? You know, predominantly, And of course, the baby male or female in the female's body, But it affects females, right? It's not gonna affect men. Men aren't going to abortion court. Have you ever met a man who got an abortion? No, Okay. So it affects females. Uh and she's mocked on Twitter and she responds, she doubles down. Uh, it's, uh, the daily mail had had, uh Put out a story. This is AOC calls menstruating people, calls women menstruating people while explaining the female body and AOC that on Twitter goes not just women. Transmit and non buying. Every people can also men street Okay, alright and come on. How do you take these people serious? I'm sorry. It's just they're trying to change our language.

"My mind that was but it was that president trump did it went that he lost and then he said the election was still on. He said that he didn't and then republicans who are keeping letting him continue to have our understanding that he has a lot of influence with the base that they are following suit in this conspiracy theory and we have to really base all the conversation in the fact that there was no widespread voter fraud and that black people and people of color who fought and died for the right to vote their access to the ballot boxes now in jeopardy way. That's what makes me have a little bit of hope about all this in the long term like this whole voter suppression. Big life thing is such a mood like it feels very much like a hail mary. I think both parties know demographically where the country is going. The nation knows this was alive. I think there's a very strong core of people who buy into this but this whole last-gasp to try to take votes away from people. 'cause you didn't like the way the elections going what i talk to younger people younger voters who are getting more and more politically engaged. This feels very much like a desperate last gasp especially among people who know what happened to the voting rights act and who are serious about seeing everyone just able to cast their ballot. A i understand. I think it's important. We separate out the big lie part of this because for hang on a second hang on a second first of all i can There may be people who can't they're made legislatures that don't want to. I agree with you about arizona. And i think that this this transparent attempt to replace them when they don't like is wrong on the other hand i think there. I think that part of the argument that we're making about places. Like georgia is is unjust. You know they allow their allowing sunday voting expanded access so and the very hero against trump. the secretary of state is now a villain. I don't get republicans no he's a villain also in this georgia. Voting rights. Question of the problems here is the you've two bills. The john lewis bill and the for the for the people and the i was a messaging bill with everything. Loaded in john lewis. Bill that's important to me was a mistake. Democratic leadership and a mistake not focusing on hr. And that's all for today very lively panel discussion here at the end. I appreciate that. Thank you for watching back next week.

"Complaint alleges that recent changes to georgia's election laws were enacted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of black georgians to vote on account of their race or color in violation of section two of the voting rights. Act welcome back. that was. The general merrick garland announcing that they are going to challenge georgia's laws and meets this. This feels like this is the first of what could be many justice department Attempts to challenge some of these state laws around the country. We're just going when you talk to people who are really familiar with the thinking about this. It's that democrats realized that they might not only be solved the legislative way but there has to be judicial in a court battle ahead. When i'm talking to civil rights activists they say they want to see to specific things when the doj really going after state legislatures to say you cannot just not only voter not only suppress people's vote nullify people's votes. That can't be that a miracle works the second thing that they want to see more judges on the court they want to see. President biden accelerate his nominees to the courts. I think that's also where this is going. This is an existential crisis in america. Who can actually get the access to vote. Republicans in state legislatures are saying. If you essentially i'm in critics would say that if you don't if we don't like the way that we you voted we will take away your vote. And that i think is a real problem if you look at philadelphia's state legislatures and whether or not they can even nullify million votes in philly. That could be a problem in a big problem. Well look. I think this is where we're sort of the multiple conversations here danny. There's the fight about access to the polls and then there's the fight about who decides what vote counts and i want to put up a map here. We have about a dozen states that have attempted to either change or already have changed Laws or restricted local officials from what they can do to change election laws. This seems to be first of all the harder. Defend position for the right And question i have is whether the courts can effectively stopped us. I mean there are a whole bunch of issues at play here. I don't think that the republican party whether the state level or at the federal level wants to be known as the party of voter suppression anymore than i think. The democratic party wants to be known as the party of voter fraud but the challenge here is that because of covid there were a lot of changes on a state by state level. It is confusing to me. And i think to a lot of people that when states seek to adjust based on some of those changes for example dropbox as never had dropbox before now dropbox in law. This is the law that miracle was just talking about. There are going to be problems if at the federal level. They decide that they only need to go after republican states that they need to go after republican runs four laws that mirror for example Things that exist in delaware or new york or connecticut or hampshire and. I think the other challenge is that I think it's hard to argue that we are in an existential crisis. How many people vote in the last election more than ever before. We have unbelievable voter engagement so again. There are reasonable arguments to be had here. But i'm not sure that those are the ones that are going on. I do want to get to the point though of whether the bigger mistake here is that there hasn't been a bigger push to renew the voting rights act. And because i don't know if merrick garland has the tools and has the To push back on these this is an attempt to deal with the pre clearance issue and it is no accident that these changes are taking place in particular states. And it is the nullification it's arizona taking away from the state secretary of state katie. Hobbs her right and in the way they write it so that the law. That chain would expire wins. Election term expires taking rhythmic thousand people off. The i'm sorry. It is specifically aimed at people of color at people have voted in this last election. People would access because of the changes because of covid they had more accidents. It's taking away in texas taking away. Sunday voting your soldier the poll. It's exactly aimed at minority understated sunday. Voting not didn't way other aspects of their purging. The and it's just it's so explicit that in the in each of these cases if you've talked to lawyers on both sides of the case there is no question that in georgia. They have a very very. It's based on a lie right. We have to remember you push republicans. I've talked to state republicans. Why are we doing this while they were motor fraud. They were voter issues.

"We come back. We're going here. One of the leading progressive democrats on this debate over one or two bills woman alexandria ocasio cortez of new york. Just next stay with us. Welcome back further biden wasn't the only democrat who linked to infrastructure bills on thursday house speaker. Nancy pelosi reportedly told her democratic Conference members there ain't no infrastructure bill without the reconciliation bill and yes she emphasized. The word ain't On that one. That's the democratic bill that would include many progressive priorities. More money for education child poverty money to fight climate. Change deal with the care. Economy all paid for by tax hikes on the wealthy and on corporations joining me now is one of the leading progressive voices in the party. It's congresswoman alexandria ocasio cortez of new york congresswoman. Welcome back to meet the press. Of course thank you for having me. So it's basically the flip question. Here that i asked senator cassidy president biden's i what do we call the statement. If a walk back. Or not his clarification of his. Was it a veto threat. Was it not what he said on. Thursday seemed to cheer progressives. Do you think his. Are you a little upset by the walk back that he made yesterday or do you consider it a walk back at all. You know i think Regardless of the president's statements there are three key. Chess pieces that we need to align to pass any legislation as we know there's the senate the house and there's white house the presidency and so i believe that you know the president is more than able to Take his own approach. But i believe that we also have to talk about this missing piece. Which is the the house. And i believe that in the house and house democrats are very committed to making sure that you know in senator cassidy's words that infrastructure is very centered on women and in addition to a bridge. You need a babysitter and it's very important that we pass Reconciliation bill and families plan that expands. Childcare that lowers the cost of medicare that That supports families in the economy. Do would you like it to be. Would you like the president to be issuing a veto threat. On the bipartisan deal. If reconciliation reconciliation package doesn't come to fruition. Well i think. I think what's really important is that i think it's very important for the president to know that house progressives And i believe the democratic caucus to ensure that he doesn't fail and we're here to make sure that he is successful in making sure that we do have a larger infrastructure plan and the fact of the matter is is that while we can welcome this work and welcome collaboration with republicans and in those areas where there is agreement. Republicans are more than welcome to join so that we can get this work on infrastructure done. But that doesn't mean that the president should be limited by republicans particularly when we have a house majority. We have fifty democratic senators and we have The white house. And i believe that we can make sure that he's successful and executing a strong agenda for working families democratic majorities of precarious right. They're very narrow in the house Extraordinarily narrow in the senate. And when i think about the makeup of the democratic coalition. You know we could make a case here that maybe fifty percent or a slight majority is progressive. But that doesn't give you a majority votes here. How big do you think this reconciliation package can be. I mean i've seen upwards of three four trillion dollars but i've also heard from some more conservative democrats in the house who think three trillion too much. So is there a baseline number that you can tolerate before you come out against the deal well to me. It's not just about a price tag right. You can have enormous price tag. That is chock full of fossil fuel giveaways and doesn't spend that money in a way that is going to That is going to solve our problems. So and you likewise you can also have an infrastructure plan that is too small and it's so small that it doesn't invest in any meaningful way that people can really feel positive impact in their everyday lives. And so for me. It's not as much about price tag. Although i do think that there is a level where we do go to small but i think it's really about what impact are we making and i believe that you all. It's really important that we talk about you. Know that this three trillion six trillion. These figures are tossed around. They're spread out over ten years. We aren't and in or eight years in some of these. I in some of these packages and so when you break that down into a per year cost it is much much smaller and frankly we really need to understand that this is our one big shot not just in terms of family childcare medicare but on climate change. Ipc report just came out this week that showed devastating consequences if we under invest and so while i appreciate for example senator. Kennedy's emphasis resilience. Resilience does not draw down carbon and building car. Infrastructure does not draw down carbon Y appreciate the ev investment. We need to have real deal. Rail investment high speed rail investment. That will help actually electrify in transition. A lot of folks so that they have the to take real almost wherever they need to take it. Obviously a lot of this depends on the senate democrats holding together. I know where you stand on the filibuster. So i'm curious what you thought of senators seminars. Op ed where she made this defense of keeping the filibuster and she rope. Would it be good for our country if we did. did this. Basically using the philip. Getting rid of the filibuster only to see legislation rescinded a few years from now and replaced by a nationwide voter. Id law restrictions on voting by mail in federal elections over the objections of the minority. I look the argument. She's making is. Let's say you get rid of the filibuster. You get all of this progressive that you'd like to see. And then all of a sudden the roles are reversed and everything gets rolled back. Is that a good enough defense to you for the filibuster. I mean it is Is essentially an argument of saying well. Why do anything at all. In case something in the future may change it. A political systems all across the country across the world Pass legislation with majorities. And they're fine. And frankly here's the thing. Is that democratic legislation. Once enacted is popular republicans have tried to gut social security. They've tried to reverse the aca. They've tried to claw back on legislation that has passed by simple majorities in the senate and they haven't been able to because democratic policies are popular and once they are enacted. They are very politically difficult to undo. And so you know. I do not believe in the defeatism of saying we will lose in the future and that and this will automatically means that anything we do now is going to be reversed so we might as well not do anything now. Our job is to leslie. Our job is to help people. Our job is to do as much as we can. And even if that's the case even if that is the case wouldn't it be better to get people healthcare and voting rights for three years instead of zero years. Even if even if you can see the point that i don't even think is true in the first place and so beyond that then. The argument is okay. Why sixty votes. Why not stop at seventy votes. Why not need eight votes to pass any legislation. Why defend a sixty vote filibuster when the senate already amplifies Minority power so that the fifty democratic senators already represent millions and millions and millions more americans than fifty republican senators and so i would argue that fifty. Republican senators is already a built in wi kind of filibuster. Ask firewall alright. Congresswoman alexandria ocasio.
