"This has a longer runway. They need to pass it by the end of the year. Hey, wanted progress by the end of May or July 4th. I don't know if that meant we've asked the White House about this. It's unclear if they meant Actual passage on the House floor or just some kind of progress in negotiations. But what's happened is the president came in. With this two plus trillion dollar plan. Republicans came back with something that was a tiny fraction of that. And then the White House made a counter offer. They cut $500 billion off the original. I think it was $2.2 Trillion, and the Republicans dismissed that out of hand. So right now, even though there have been several bipartisan meetings at the White House with Republicans and the president, they are very far apart on three fundamental things. Number one. What is infrastructure? Is it just roads and bridges doesn't include broadband and and high tech manufacturing. How much infrastructure should we pay for? And then the third thing, which is really important is how do we pay for it? Do we pay for it with user fees, which is what the Republicans want or do we raise taxes on people making more than $400,000 a year and corporations? That's what the White House wants in their counter offer. They did not change the pay fors. In other words, they're still proposing to pay for it the same way. And, um, many Democrats think that in the end, the Biden will have to pass this bill the same way he passed the covert relief bill, which is under a budget maneuver known as reconciliation. Basically a car about to the filibuster. Which means you can pass a bill with 51 votes in the Senate can't be filibustered. That's how covert relief got past and maybe that's how American families Act will be passed. But we're not done yet. I think negotiations are still ongoing. There is a group of bipartisan senators trying to work something out that one is a work in progress. They're sometimes groups of bipartisan House members or senators who work in good faith, faith with each other. But really the leadership on one side or another, or both isn't interested in a compromise bill for political reasons. I'm curious of your impression of in this case, if either side wants a compromise, or would they rather both have a one party bill and an issue That's a really good question. Infrastructure was supposed to be the exception to the rule of hopeless polarization on Capitol Hill structure has traditionally been something that's bipartisan. Anything that makes the United States more competitive with China has had bipartisan support. Um, and there was hope that certain chunks of Biden's infrastructure agenda could be broken off Universal Broadband. Roads and bridges cleaning up lead pipes. You know that kind of thing that maybe they could be passed separately with Bipartisan votes, then the human infrastructure parts that Republicans aren't interested in the child care. Funding to keep elderly people cared for in their homes, Things like that free community college free. A pre K. Those things would be passive Democrats, but Democratic votes only, but it's still unclear how much of this will be in one package and how much of this Republicans would like to vote for Don't forget. After the covert relief bill was passed with no Republican votes, several Republicans were touting its provisions to their constituents. So there are there are many things inside the infrastructure package that are very, very popular, and that Republicans like But they don't want it. Many of them do not want to give President Biden of win. That's True on both sides when there's divided government and also they don't want to vote for any tax hikes to pay for it. Let me drill down on one of those things that you mentioned, And if you're just joining us, listen is my guest for another few minutes is NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson Thea American Families Act. Question of that to party infrastructure Bill basically building a new babies and toddlers, infrastructure setting limits on people's out of pocket childcare expenses for babies and establishing two years of pre K which which, I think would be very popular with families on Both sides of the political aisle. There really is a lack compared to other industrialized countries that I imagine crosses party lines, But I don't hear Republicans getting behind this concept. What of the politics of that? Well, this American families plan would strengthen the social safety net. There's been a huge shift in public opinion over the years. The kind of the Reagan revolution is over. People no longer think that activist government is a bad thing as as you've had more economic inequality, as as it's been harder and harder for people to stay in the middle class. They seem to think you know, we have Social security for old people. We should have something for families to and there is a handful of Republicans in the Senate that want to increase the child tax credit. Mitt Romney wants to give cash payments to families. Um then they could spend it either on Childcare outside the home or inside the home. So I think that there are Republicans who are forced some of these provisions. But on the whole, the Republican strategy is to say that this is socialism. And our it's forcing people into. We've even heard this corporate childcare and they're there. I can't imagine there's going to be much Republican support for the human part of the infrastructure plan. Finally mark not a bill per se, but President Biden School of 70% of Americans. Vaccinated by the fourth of July. How's it going? And is that a partisan issue? Well, it certainly is a partisan issue in terms of people who say they want to get the vaccine, and they don't although there also is more of an education split, their people who have college educations are more inclined to get the vaccine than people who aren't regardless of their race or ethnicity. But what's interesting about herd immunity is that we had someone on NPR yesterday, who said it's really not a good idea to think of herd immunity. It's better to think of it as community immunity because there are communities in the United States. They're going to reach the levels of immunity. Whether it's 70 or 80%, that that is going to be enough to protect them. They're going to be other communities. Um That don't so I think that many parts of America are on their way to what we were calling herd immunity. And although the vaccination rate has slowed down, there's a huge push to increase it and accelerated, including all sorts of incentives. Employers offering bonuses. Um, you know Mike DeWine, the governor of Ohio, even was offering a kind of lottery prize. So I think that Yeah. Cuomo here. Cuomo in New York, too, So I think that you know, people are continuing to get vaccinated. But there are pockets of the country where vaccinations are not popular, and there are communities that it's just hard to convince that they should get vaccinated. But I think by July 4th All right. Joe Biden will have something some kind of success to announce ending on a note of optimism. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson We always appreciated by thank you so much. Thanks for having me. Brain there and w N my see much more to come. We know.

"Together. I saw local restaurant owner the other day when I was in the little downtown it area and I said Have you applied, he said. I contacted my my accountant and he's getting everything together, So I just want to make sure that people get in the door. They can go to http s restaurants that SP ea dot Does If anyone has a problem, call my office in Palo Alto. All right, that's good. I love it When people say you can call me if you need help. Absolutely. So, listen, I I don't have you here for very long. Um, so I'm gonna hitch up with another question that has to do with another group of Americans who are suffering financially. You know, we hear a lot of chalk, but we haven't seen much action when it comes to college students and the debt they've had to incur just to go to school just to go to college Congresswoman. Is there anything of substance right now? That's working its way through Congress to deal with forgiving student debt, or somehow tackling the crazy high cost of college? Yes. On a pad. Thank you for for raising the issue because student loan debt now outstrips credit card debt. In the United States, and that is that is enough to take anyone's breath away on D Yet there is something in the pipeline. The president has spoken to this. About loan forgiveness, and it'll be coming up in the in one of the two major bills that he's proposed a DS sent up to the hilt for Congress to consider. I think it's either in the America I don't think it's in the American Jobs Act. I think it's in the American families Act, So yes. We're going to get at it Good on by. I don't want to be self serving or anything. But I have triplets who are 17 on they're on. They're all headed for college. I have one going to Hawaii and I have to staying here in California, one to Santa Barbara, one to Cal, and I'm thrilled about it. But as I start looking at these costs, it is so unbelievable. And, you know, we're family that does just fine. But I wonder how people actually Had managed to send their kids through school. It's just day rig or that you have to put yourself into debt in order to allow your kids. These numbers on costs really are not sustainable Hat. And I hear this on a on a consistent basis from constituents from my own kids own kids. Yeah, they have them too. Well, my daughter does Chief Enter PhD, and she's congratulate she's working. She's an educator, but she she's carrying that debt. So now this is affecting families and individuals across the country. It needs to be addressed and Um, these debt burdens? Uh, even after they graduate from school, I mean, they're carrying, uh, you know, a mortgage on themselves. E mean, that's what it's equivalent to greater. Well, you gotta bring Joe Manchin into the fold. And, you know, it seems like he's so resistant. And if not Joe Mansion. Maybe there are some Republicans who are willing to do the right thing for the people in their own districts. You're sure taking credit for it? Once the Democrats get it done mind should be. What's best for the country doesn't matter whether you're Republican and Democrat and independent. That's what people want. That's what they need. And that's why I'm so happy that you invited me back so we could get the word out to the restaurants and all the others that are included in this grant program. It's going to really help them. You know, I just want to say, Congresswoman that I'm thrilled. With the way things are moving since Joe Biden was inaugurated that you know the Congress is moving together, and it does seem as if what they're doing is exactly what the American people want and with the American people need, And even if the Republicans in in office are going to be obstructionist, their constituents are glad that you are getting things done for them. So it's a wonderful observation and I agree with you, in fact, and during one of our debates at the MIC committee, which they were not supportive of the policy that we were working on and voting on. I reminded my Republican friends that even if they voted no, and they were voting, though, that's the words in the legislation. We're going to walk into the lives. Their constituents. A swell is mine. So you know it. This is our job, and the president knows we know that we have to crush the virus. And, uh and really rebuild our economy. And what we were talking about. Today is a major step in the major sector, uh, in our country and in all of our local communities they deserve help. Uh, this isn't anyone's fault. Uh, except the this vicious virus has visited us and the rest of the world But we've got that We have tol keep the pedal to the metal rebuild our economy crushed the virus. And really how people get up. And once they do you know they the American people are highly productive and ingenious. Yes, And that's kind of the point, too, because this is not only enhancing the lives of individual Americans, but as a result of this as a result of helping this enormous part of our culture, these restaurants, for example, but other things that you are including in these bills. What ultimately going to happen is it's going to put people to work. There's going to be money. The money's going to circulate the economy is going to be even more robust. Absolutely. It all works together. It's all part of the system, every community country regardless of the zip code. Well, Congresswoman and issue a. Thank you so much for joining us today. The opportunity to spread some good news. We all need good news. We sure do. Well, thank you and get to work on that. A student debt stuff. Healthy path we need you all right, Same to you, Congressman and I look forward to the next time. Okay, That's Congresswoman Anna issue. We're going to take a little break and we will come back.

This isn't about the culture. Wars says haniger standard keynesian stimulus spending the biden plan is about public policies. That will actually redesign american society. The american families plan other reasons democratic legislation implicitly pose several more important questions is the traditional american ideal of upward mobility so important and if so how should upward mobility happen through washington or through individual commitment dedication and effort indeed to the habit of individuals striving give way to a presumably more important goal of nationalized paternalism. Now he goes on to write about When the transition began with the federal unemployment insurance bonus of three hundred dollars Asking the question again. No one is begrudging. Any one who took a financial hit as a result of covid nineteen but fortunately as these entitlements in these programs that encourage us just as sit at home and you know let the government take care of us.

"Experiencing right now is a real shift in savings and consumption patterns. I just think the government is showering families with money so fast that they can't spend it as fast. The government is providing it is especially when you have an economy. That's still in semi lockdown mode most of the increase spending on goods and again. You're seeing that in the trade deficits but the spending on services hasn't come back in full yet but it will all. This cash is literally burning holes in the pockets of americans. They will spend his buddy. And all of this savings that is going to be turned into. Spending is going to push prices up even higher and of course there's going to be all the new money that the government is going to continue to provide the economy especially if we get this. American families act passed and we incentivize so many americans to basically take what amounts to a ninety day paid vacation where they spend ninety days every year doing absolutely nothing to add to the economic output of the nation but get government checks to start buying stuff that they didn't help produce so all of this is a real negative sign of massive inflation. In fact look at some of the other prices that we're already seeing. We got the chicago that came out for april and shot up to seventy two point. One that has the highest since december of nineteen eighty-three and what was happening back in nineteen eighty eighty three. We were actually coming out of the worst recession since the great depression. This was early in the reagan. Time where initially you had volker allowing short term interest rates to rise up to twenty percent and we had a really big recession as we broke the back of the inflation that had ravaged the country during the one thousand nine hundred seventy s and then as the economy really started to boom in. Nineteen eighty-three coming out of that deep recession than we had a i number at this level but that was a more legitimate pm because it happened with rates very high defend was not artificially stimulating the economy to the degree. That it's doing it now. In fact everything all of this economic performance is been enhanced by the fed. That's why i do not understand the universally bullish coverage that we're seeing on these numbers while everybody completely ignores the only reason that these numbers are so strong with any economic series is because the federal reserve is showering the economy with freshly printed money and everybody is going on a shopping spree but buried inside that pm. I number was the biggest jump in prices. Paid in forty one.

"Day shy of this 100 Day in office, President Biden is going to go to the floor of the House to give his first address to a joint session of Congress. And I have to admit to you, Rick and Matt. This is one of my favorite days of the year. This and Constitution Day. Um, you know, most years, Of course, it's called the state of the Union. But when the president's newly inaugurated it's a joint address, presumably because the new president doesn't know enough about the state of the union yet, although It's hard to believe that when it comes to President Biden, he's spent his entire adult life immersed in Washington, D C and national politics And, of course, unlike most presidents, this a state of the union or state of the Union esque address has been pushed back because of the pandemic In January, 6th So what? We're expecting to hear it tonight. Amongst other things. His new massive American families plan coming in around $1.8 Trillion and today, speaking to a B C's powerhouse politics podcast, White House press secretary Jen Psaki explained how President Biden seeks to introduce his plan in his way that is accessible for those of us watching from home. We have sound on that. He wants to talk about it as the things we can do for you. How can we help you? How can we help you get back to work? How can we help your kids? How can we ensure their industries of the future that your kids can work in and your communities can thrive around and you know that's really is full of So Matt Bennett. How is he going to do this? How is he going to make this case to an American public for the third massive bill he's put forward. Well, uh, to your point. This is not a state of the union because he's he's new, but he's done a lot already. He's only been there since January, 20th and in that time He has delivered massively on his promise in rolling out the pandemic response, including. Obviously the vaccines were 200 million vaccines have been Administered so far, breaking all expectations, and he's also provided emergency relief that everyone desperately needed. Now he needs to turn to what she called during the campaign. Building back better, which is to say We don't want to go back to the economy that we had before the pandemic because too many people were struggling and being left behind. And as Jen Psaki noted, there's a lot in his proposal, the American Family Act that would provide relief in very specific ways to people in ways that they will recognize instantly. That is both good policy and good politics. That I get the impression though just from the little bit of buzz coming out of the White House related to this speech. He's really not there to sell to the 200 or so members of Congress that we're lucky enough to score a invite for tonight since the covert restrictions will be imposed on Congress. That he's going to go sort of over their heads right to the American people. And if there was a So the victory laps Cove it right. He's 200 million vaccines. That's that's impressive in the 1st 100 days. How's it going to sell a package that's going to be a little harder to explain when you get into the various effects of all these massive spending programs that he has? I mean, like it's so wide ranging. I mean, the speech could go two hours. Is that your expectation that He's gonna find a simple way to convey this message to the American people. It's my hope, Rick that he's able to do that. But as you know, with a package this size to your point, there's a risk that it could just be a list. You know, a laundry list. I'm going to do A and B and C and by the time you get to queue people have turned tuned out so My hope is that they've crafted a speech that will resonate broadly by allowing people to kind of get their arms around what he's providing in very specific ways. So I think what he'll do is concentrate on Some very, very specific pieces of this. So how is he going to make education more affordable, You know, free pre k for all 33 4 year old house. You're gonna 32 years of community college. That's how it's going to make education more affordable. How is he going to provide economic security? He's gonna provide more support for people with kids and child care. I think if he doesn't go too far and make it too much of a laundry list It will be a speech that people can really understand. But the risk with these kinds of speeches is everybody wants their piece in there. And so I'm hoping that they were able to avoid that. And Rick as somebody you've worked so much in politics and campaigns and White House is how difficult is it to make this speech to only this sort of covert, truncated audience that's going to be there? What Matt described it very well, And he's had White House experience as well as I haven't we've had it, you know, put our request in for speeches. Here's what I want the president to talk about, and it's a food fight in the White House over a speech like this, I mean, everyone's got their particular interest. You know, the political people wanted done a certain way the policy people wanted done a certain way. The outreach folks wanted done certain way that congressional people need certain language in there, and it is one of the hardest things to keep small. And so it'll be interesting.

"Aid to parents. Let's give them certainty. I believe we should make the $2000 child tax credit A permanent feature of the tax code. Democratic representative Susan Del Benny of Washington State recently re introduced a bill to do just that. Have a bill to do this the American Family Act which would enhance the child tax credit and make it permanent, which I know is so important to addressing poverty throughout our country, So I hope that gentleman would be willing to work with us on that legislation. The committee also advanced an important provision to extend temporary federal unemployment benefits through the end of August. The current federal unemployment boost will sunset on March 14th. If the bill is approved, that benefit would increase from $300 to $400 per week. House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi says Democrats hoped to get the stimulus package through the House by the end of February through the Senate and on the president's desk before those additional unemployment benefits are set to expire. The House Budget Committee will consider all parts of the bill next week before sending it off to the Senate. However, one piece of the proposal could face a significant roadblock once it gets there. Conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, told the Hill in early February that he doesn't support raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour since Democrats hold a marginal majority in the Senate. They will need mansion support for the bill in order for it to pass without Republican support. The poor People's campaign recently announced plans to lead a large group of minimum wage workers to mentions office in Charleston on Monday to urge his support of the $15 minimum wage. While $15 an hour is not a living wage in many areas of the United States, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, raising the federal minimum wage to $15 would lift an estimated 900,000 workers out of poverty.

"All due respect I reject your theory complete but you know what there needs to be some backlash to this this would be disastrous it really has to be a better way and I think the biggest question here is what the hell is going on the accurate mortgage talk and text line is open now Jeff a call at four one four seven nine nine one six twenty four present get in the race will he run it now W. T. M. J.'s chap wider good afternoon Wisconsin welcome to the show yeah and Jane was just talking about that Dianne Carroll who maybe if you are of a certain age you just have no idea who Dianne Carroll was but Dianne Carroll was really a trailblazer in the area of television she starred in a TV show called Julia that I think ran in I think nineteen sixty seven and what was so interesting about this is this was a a situation comedy but it was ground breaking in there it was the first situation comedy that featured an African American character in a non sort of stereo typical role starring role I mean there had been other course African American characters in television but typically they would play roles like maids or things like that in Julia Dianne Carroll played eighteen nurse her husband had passed away in Vietnam and she was smart she was opinionated she was stylish they showed her dating successful African American men yeah yeah I I say that and it sounds like will cheat Jeff I mean with with what's the big deal about that but in nineteen sixty seven on television believe it or not it was in fact a big deal and Dianne Carroll very much a trailblazer she was also at a very gifted entertainer and kind of dropped off the radar screen after a while but if you are of a certain age undoubtedly you watch the show do. and like I say she was she laid the groundwork for a lot of other programs that came afterwards right I want to. pick up today show where we left off yesterday shall I bring this up typically I don't do topics back to back but we we launched into a topic at the very end of yesterday's program and we have jammed phone lines and I had given myself enough time really to discuss this fully I got a ton of emails and text afterwards indicating the the interesting discussion about this I also understand that some people thank you turn on WTMJ at six o'clock in the morning it'll turn it off to you go to bed at night other people come in and out there is something that is being introduced in Congress right now it's called the American family active twenty nineteen it is supported by a number of the people who are running to be the democratic nominee for president including comel Heris Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren Cory Booker in any clue truck right the I'm this American family act recognizes instruct with the premise that staying home and raising a family offers a value and I don't think there's anybody that would disagree with that I mean whether you know it's the more traditional thing where the woman stays home and takes care of the kids or the house husbands I think we would all agree that there is a value to that and I think if you talk to most people who've had one of those situations where one spouse stayed home and one spouse work you would agree that it's a partnership to raising the kids there's also a choice that you end up making if you have one of the spouses that stay home and that is well stay at home spouse isn't going to be working outside the home so they're not going to be generating revenue that could be generating money and it does put pressure you're living on one person's income obviously if you have both people who are working outside the home two incomes coming in and yeah you might have to spend some money on child care but you've got again two incomes coming. yeah all right this proposed law would say that the government the government should start paying you to stay home the way it would work is that for all but the highest earning families so for most families you would get a check if one of your spouse's if the person stays home to take care of the kids you don't need to be married either I mean this you could be staying at home if you stay at home to take care of kids the government will send you a check in the amount of three hundred dollars a month for each child under the age of five. also the government would send you a check for two hundred and fifty dollars each month for each child ages six to sixteen so under this proposal let's say you had four kids I don't know ten twelve four and two you get six hundred Bucks for the two that are under five you get five hundred dollars for the kids that were older than that so you get eleven hundred dollars a month the government would send issue that check on people who don't work for pay would be eligible and it would be paid every month now clearly if you did something like this well it might make it easier might make it more affordable for people to be able to stay home our number four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talking text line well I guess it will in a couple minutes and yesterday's topic a roll this out first person I called in sick my gosh I can't believe somebody would think about this I mean you know this is you you make these different choices but you know why should you be paid simply to stay home second caller I got said well I think this is a great idea we spend millions and millions of dollars on things like smart bombs and the like why shouldn't we pay people it would make it a lot easier for people to raise families why shouldn't we just have the government write checks to people and by the way this would be in addition to all the other types of benefits that are out there but a government subsidy for having children and not working four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talking text line and by the way to my understanding there there's no there's no limit on the number of children that would qualify the more children you would have the more children you would be paid for the more money you would get all right what do you think for one four seven nine nine one six twenty we discuss in just a moment if you're on the line please hold on to Jeff record.

"Right. WNYC? And now we continue with the Brian Lehrer show ideas festival. Presidential race addition this week, we're bringing you ten ideas from ten presidential hopeful this one each hour all this week the one for this hour comes from Colorado Senator Michael Bennet who just entered the race last week. A Bill is sponsoring is called the American family act now asked what differentiates him from the other twenty twenty Democrats in an interview on Colorado public radio he pointed to that Bill my plan. Call the American family act that dramatically increases the child tax credit, which would be a huge benefit middle class families would reduce childhood poverty in this country by forty almost forty percent, it costs only three percent of what Medicare for all costs, and it's much less expensive that Donald Trump's tax cut for the wealthy. The idea that we could do something like that and give middle class families a better chance of affording housing healthcare. Higher education and early childhood education and lift forty percent of the kids in this country Rin poverty out of poverty. That's the kind of thing we could do if we had a political system that actually function Colorado Senator and democratic presidential hopeful, Michael Bennett, our guest to explain this idea is the sponsor of the Bill in the house. And she is one of our locals democratic congresswoman Rosa DeLores of Connecticut now to be clear, she joins us not as a surrogate for the Michael Bennett campaign, but as a longtime supporter of this specific idea, so it's so nice of you to do this congresswoman welcome back to WNYC well, divide it to be with you and delighted to speak about the American family act. How would it work? Okay. There we go. First of all what it does an essence is to change the current child tax credit. And in fact, it is transformative for middle class families. It creates a young child tax credit. Would you equal to thirty six hundred? Dollars per year. Four children who are under the age of six. It increases the child tax credit for those ages six to eighteen to three thousand dollars per child per year. And at what it does. It makes an enormous impact the value of the credits an enormous impact on a child's health education and future. And in the context to understand that the biggest economic problems that people are facing today that they're they're struggling they live from paycheck to paycheck. They're in jobs that you know, just they. I just not making enough enough money, and I you know, and many many if they had a a four hundred dollar Bill for something of would not be able to pay for that is you know, is a very high percentage of there's about forty percent of people find themselves in this category. So dealing with a young child tax credit and a child tax credit vote for those over six and under six I think is is it it's critical and the tax credit is fully refundable. That means it is not linked to income and indexes the tax credit to inflation. Just again for a point of clarification. Child tax credit. There is there is a three thousand dollar income threshold, but what is important to note about this one third of children. They live in families who earn too little to get the full child tax credit are not eligible for it. So it leaves one third of kids behind and families behind and and being able to increase their their their opportunity to be able to achieve more economic more economic security. I see that unlike the usual child tax credit that this payment would be made monthly not annually to these low income families. That's right now, you get it in a lump sum. Okay. And I I don't know how you pay your bills we pay my pay them on a monthly basis. You don't don't hold them all together. And then when you get an infusion of of of of resources that you pay them God, you may not have a car. You may not have. I mean, whatever it is. Anyway, this is month by month, and it it can make it very very very big difference in in the families today. So it's an income supplement say again who qualifies did you say that is an income cap or there isn't. An income of a cap of four what you earned there is a cap of one hundred eighty thousand dollars a year for eligibility to get and it and it and it stays down. But it goes up two hundred eighty thousand dollars a year in which case, you are, you know, middle class families can avail themselves of this and others can as as as well. But in terms of what you earn. There's some people who don't have any earnings, and again, as I said, one third of children who are in families who earn you know, too little cannot get the benefit of a child tax credit and that puts them at at risk. I might also add look this is not amaze speaking there was recently, a National Academy of sciences just put out a a study called a roadmap to reducing. Child poverty, and what they say about they talked about a number of programs, but they do talk about about the child tax credit that it has the potential for lifting. Forty percents of people are now in poverty out of poverty. It is incredible. And I heard in the clip that we played of Senator Bennett that he used that stat that this could reduce childhood poverty in this country by almost forty percent. And it's almost incredible to think that a simple child tax credit like this could have that dramatic impact on child poverty. It really is is true. And as I say, I I've been working on this for years as you pointed out. There's no matter of fact, I introduced the concept of a child tax credit in two thousand three and the budget committee that we ought to be moving in this direction. Not be very very honest with you. I lost on a party line vote. All the Democrats voted for all the Republicans said, no. But I've been working my point is not the partisan side. But my point is I've been working on this for a long time. It is the ability as I use the word earlier on transformative in in the lives of you know, families, and and currently the child tax credit that we have, you know, makes it more difficult for people. It leaves out members of congress are eligible for a child tax credit, but military families rural families families that have young chill. Children families who earn a minimum wage and have multiple kids. They're not eligible because they earn too little. There's no sense to that. I'm so glad to partner in the house with congresswoman Susan del bene from Washington state and in the Senate with Senator Bennet from Colorado, and and Senator of Ohio. And so it might be good to even clarify what child tax credit means because you're saying if you're too poor to really pay any income taxes, then you can't benefit from the tax credit the way things are currently structured, so it's really a cash transfer to families that are sufficiently poor and have children, right? It. So whatever you, you know, and how much since you said, it's it's monthly how much pa- month. I think you got the it's a three hundred or three hundred fifty and then to fifty and that little amount of money is the difference between poverty and not poverty. Of course, you multiply that by twelve for how much that is over the course of a year. And if it's given monthly then people can use it to pay their bills, drip, drip, drip, and it could be your saying transformative in that way. Now, an analysis on vox point out that other developed countries in Europe and Canada or ready supporting parents with programs like this. Are you familiar enough to give us examples? Just one other point Lee talk about lifting CNN forty percent of children out of poverty. But there is also deep poverty in the United States. And that's it's it's it's half of what the like about twelve thousand dollars or or or lower and it helps almost half of other folks out of deep poverty as well. So I mean, yes familiar with the you know, what you know with other countries are are are doing, and they are ahead of us in in this effort. They have more generous child benefits, and we should strive to match that. Yeah. I view this. As a the data is clear. And it's clear from some of the studies that have been done in Europe have more generous policies lead to drastic reductions in childhood poverty. And that's, you know, that's that's evidenced that, you know, it's a moral issue. Honestly, you know, that we could also be seen as instead of simply an expense of taxpayers are thinking, I don't want to pay for this. It could be seen as a stimulus like the Trump tax cuts are very expensive. And yet they were sold to the public on the idea that they would stimulate the economy because there'd be more money in people's pockets. Well, you've got that one. You know, ex exactly right. And what my point was going to be as we have not Li the administration has lavished on millionaires billionaires Inc. You know, a adjusted know tax cuts that are, you know, beyond the pale, you know, and. And. Just leave these families behind leading these kids behind that's where we try to all of us who have been active in this in this area. In this space have been been been trying to do. And I believe we have an opportunity to be able to do this. And and again, I I commend to you, you know, and and enter your audience, the National Academy of sciences report a roadmap to producing child, poverty, and you know, they lay it out they deal with the science of all of this. And it's quite extraordinary. Do you think the resistance to this by the Republicans because if you had a democratic majority in both houses seems like this would pass has something to do with the fact that politics is so focused on the middle class that poverty just gets overlooked because the poor have no power. Well, the the first of all let me just say this to you. Honestly, I'm gonna put this back on you. You have to ask my Republican colleagues. Why why are they not forth? It's a great question for them. They should support the family they supported the president's tax cuts for the wealthiest people in the wealthiest corporations, and they passed they child tax credit which left out. I you know, I mentioned to you rural families military families families who make the the the the minimum wage, and what this is is that you yes middle class. Families are going to be helped working people are going to be helped low income workers. And yes, poor families. We are looking at across the board here of being able I said to you biggest economic problem today. People in jobs that do not pay them enough money to. People working in the workplace full-time and not making enough money to get by let alone. Those who are you know, who who are evolving income are who are poor. So you you have a unbelievable financial security solution to these families and being able to help them selves lift themselves out of poverty. So that they can afford healthcare. They can afford childcare.

I wish I could have gone a lot sooner let quicker Trump publicly criticize Muller for months calling him conflicted and labeling the Russia investigation a hoax and a witch hunt Muller concluded that there was no collusion or conspiracy between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia, he did not exonerate Trump on the question of obstruction of Justice, though. President Trump doesn't have any problem with Muller's report being released. That's what White House press secretary.

She says she has some ideas about who should be testified is so gung ho to call people up to the hill the list, I would start with our Komi Clapper Brennan and other people in the FBI who perpetuated this absurd lie in this absurd idea that the president of the United States was somehow a foreign agent and colluding with another government.

"But like this often comes up when we're talking about lots of other domestic policy issues as well. When we talk about, you know, poverty alleviation via the sea when we talk about family policy the child tax credit. Do you think that the tax code is a good way to deal with all of this or has it just kind of become a an easy, but maybe not ideal policy solution. I think a lot of things it's mixed thirds. Compelling evidence, for instance, the child tax credit that you mentioned that has actually benefited low income families, and very real and substantial ways that has been a powerful tool to help. Reduce poverty, y'all had an article I think just yesterday or today about the Democrat's new proposal that Senator Bennett and Senator I think Sherrod Brown have supported that. As called the American family here. Family at American family act that essentially the main vehicle for reducing child poverty is through the child tax credit. And and that's because in that case, there is substantial evidence that that works. However, I also don't think that that should be the limit of our efforts because there are other ways that we need to make direct investments in communities. Right. And also use other devices, for instance, that national housing trust fund that looks at GNC transaction fees instead of the tax code. Like who wants to spend fifty dollars on a t-shirt that really only costs seven dollars to me. I don't you probably don't with ever lane. You don't have to with every new never overpay for quality clothes..

"Sixty in Santa Monica and fifty seven in north Hollywood. We lead local live from the KFI twenty four hour newsroom. I'm about ETA. Good morning Thursday morning. January thirty first from the big stories that we are covering the big weather story is for us. The rains are happening today for the next few days, but it's not huge massive storm. Like we had now in the midwest. That's a whole different animal. The bid west some of the coldest weather that has ever been recorded actually all kinds of new unfortunately, new records broken in terms of the cold. We're talking about some places with the wind chill factors of forty fifty degrees below zero s life-threatening stop die without. And that's and we don't even know how many deaths are are because they haven't figured out. You're gonna see a lot more reported eight or something, and it's going to be more. Not okay. We also have some border talk. And I think the president is going to be speaking. We just I saw that on FOX or waiting for the president to say something about the border wall. All. And we'll see if there's going to be some kind of a compromise, which I think there will be okay now, the twenty twenty presidential election. I mean, it's already here the races already here. We know that. And so, where's the story is certainly isn't on the Republican side. Because clearly who's gonna are who is going to run against President Trump. You don't do that. I mean, that's the nominee now on the democratic side. Just a reverse what happened during the race last time on the Republican side, seventeen Republicans and Democrats are running at this point at last count. There were one hundred and fifty-six and it's going to boil down to five or six big front runners and several have are approaching their plan as so many in their plans to fight poverty. Now, that's important. And I'll tell you why because not only is fighting poverty important in and of itself and considering how wealthy this country. It is it is a shame that we have so many poor people. This is a tough country to be pouring. Now granted is not South America poor. It's not Asia poor where it's really tough to be poor is not Middle East poor where they're really poor is Africa poor, but it's still a tough country to be poor as opposed to Europe, for example, where it's a lot easier to be poor as opposed to Scandinavia where poor people are actually richer than rich people because of the system so poverty is going to be one of the pre MIR issues of the democratic race for president. And so there are five major proposals up for reducing poverty child poverty. Also, there's two different kinds of poverty. Actually, there's several different kinds of poverty. You've got child poverty you. Have a poverty in general. You have housing that issue you have food, insecurity, downright poor. Starving. Very few of those. And there is also the poverty line, whether you live above or below it and the food stamp lay. And that sort of thing all kinds of different levels of poverty, and based on that there are a bunch of programs that are being introduced or being considered one the lift program livable incomes for families today. God, I love this stuff. The acronyms the middle class act. That is that's a Kamala Harris. Introduction two hundred and forty seven billion dollars a year that is the most comprehensive one of all and that effectively takes care of. I would guess eighty percent. And I'm just guessing here of the poverty Pearl grey the poverty rate here in the United States, but a two hundred and forty seven billion dollars man that is a ton of money, then you have the gain program grow American incomes now act one hundred and eleven billion dollars the rent relief act, and that only deals with Ren subsidizing rent through refundable tax credits to people making less than one hundred thousand dollars a year. And spending at least thirty percent of their income on rent. How many people here in southern California? Spend more than thirty percent of their income on rent matter of fact, let me go the other way, right? How many people don't spend more than thirty percent? Of their income for rent. So that was ninety three billion dollars year. Then you have home housing opportunity, mobility and equity act one hundred and thirty four billion dollars a year. This is Cory Booker. And that's also a refundable credit to people pay more than thirty percent is very very close. But it has to do with the levels of income and also has to do with. Of course, how many kids you have. And it just goes on and on. So there are many different ways of doing it the American family act. This is Sherry Brown. Ninety one billion dollars a year that's three thousand dollars year for kids six eighteen that's the number of kids you have. And so it all boils down to the more radical one gets the more radical the premise is going to be if you see a moderate democrat getting the nomination you're going to be at the lower end of this program. You'll see you'll still see a homeless program is a big issue. I mean, keep in mind with the debates that are going. To happen. And it'll be President Trump and surname of candidate here. One of the big issues will be homelessness, and it will be the cost. And if it's Elizabeth Warren or her ilk, the cost is going to be astronomical. I think it'd be fairly easy for President Trump to knock that down simply based on cost. And if it's going to be someone who is more moderate better chance to get it passed coming up a new study on vaping. We had a few of those vaping. Does it help with smoking? Does it not? How healthy is it? I'll talk about that. When we come back brand new study just came out. They gave us some good news. And also when we come back chance to win some cash. All.
