"Henry today. San Antonio, Texas 6 16 Jeffries and don prior. That is true, and you went 51283605 90. So a Texas mother of three who was married to a border patrol agents is imploring Joe Biden to close the border. Alison Anderson on Fox just a few minutes ago. Talks about her family's property has been overrun by human smugglers for eight straight months, and she's also very worried about the unvaccinated illegal immigrants flowing across the border. Obviously, my concerns are safety. What we're seeing is we're overwhelmed with illegal immigrants that are coming through our property or neighborhood or community. When I received word that there were Last. I heard it was somewhere close to 2000 yesterday. Illegal immigrants down under the bridge is the corner entry. Um I mean, it's concerning, especially with Covid right now, um Our healthcare workers are completely overwhelmed as it is, and I'm just I didn't know who to contact and we are just trying to find You know? Are we trying to get our safety back? To be honest, I would say 100%. It's a Biden administration's fault. He needs to do something. It's it's hypocritical, um, to sit here and mandate vaccines. Against citizens. At the same time, the border is completely wide open, and there's literally thousands of illegal immigrants pouring over the border here right now, many that are infected with either covid and or have been exposed to covid or symptomatic to code. It. And they're being released into our communities. I have never heard of anyone being vaccinated. I've actually heard where illegals have the option to deny the vaccine. Meanwhile, the president would like to mandate that against citizens as far as where they're being taken. Oftentimes it's wherever their final destination is, is where they're being taken. Yeah. There you go. Bad, shocking stories, man. People dealing with this. We've been talking about this for a while, obviously, And every time I hear these personal stories like from her, it just all comes back. It's like what the hell is going on 6 18, and you can jump in at 51283605 90. It makes no sense. Other than getting voters. Yeah, Beyond that. You got me. Let's give them some business. Check this out. Travis County Commissioners Court is set to disclose allocating $110 million in the American Rescue Plan Act, the R P a at least once to address homelessness and affordability, affordable housing. It's out of 37 it, says Travis County set to allocate about $247 million local fiscal recovery funds through Arba. The money can be used to address public health needs, including affordable housing and strategies to re house people quotes that are experiencing homelessness. According to the state or story here on K View, and multiple organizations have requested portions of these funds to assist with the project cost and the total request in the request. You know, folks required receiving money is about 100 and 10. The foundation communities, mobile loaves and fishes community. First they're asking for $50 million to help create the Burlison Village. It's a supportive housing committee for approximately 700 residents, okay? That's well, that's that's pretty lofty Go seven and the residents that's not going to dent in the problem. Right There it is. It is, And I think mobile loaves and fishes has a pretty good reputation. When I hear them mentioned in the story. I'm paying attention. $50 million is a lot of money. Yeah, now another $50 million was requested by the Travis County Supportive Housing Collaborative in these funds would go towards developing new, affordable housing communities all across Travis County to house 1000 new residents. I haven't heard of that organization. Uh, the other one is called the other ones Foundation. They've progressed it $3 million to assist in developing camp Esperanza, the tiny home community with the goal of re housing 475 people. They only need $3 million to do that. Uh, And we've actually had some officials from that organization call our show. The foundation community also needs 6.5 million to, uh complete the Juniper Creek apartments, which will be made up of 145 affordable units for formerly homeless families with Children. Overall, the 110 if approved what would cover about two fund about 2000 new units. In April, local leaders set a goal of re housing 3000 people experiencing homelessness over the next three years. Summit to address the unsheltered homelessness in Austin. Yeah. Well, this would be an incredibly helpful um, Of course. The goal is to have a roof over these people's heads. So that takes homes obviously, but But what's more important or what programs are going to support this be around it, uh, to prevent these people from becoming homeless again and helping them work into working members of society when and when I do hear mobile loaves and fishes and partially involved here than you have my attention. Well, there's several groups that requesting money and I'd like to, you know A little bit more about the others in their track record. What is the What will be seen as a success? Because I mean, you know, if you're gonna hand over this kind of money, one of the taxpayer is going to get in return. And, you know, how are we going to judge that and calculate that because here's what I've learned about a lot of these little organizations to ask for 500,000 or a million dollars, you know, in the scheme of things they asked for, you know pennies instead of dollars, but still a lot of money. But typically there these they're these organizations that basically get really close to certain City Council members, and they create these organizations where they they're doing nonprofit stuff. But really, what they're doing is they're pushing a political agenda for that specific council member. In other words they made the council may throw up. Quarter of a million dollars at a group that has, you know 10, 15 employees and really, what they do is block walk for that for that candidate and kind of talking about their you know their whatever nonprofit program, the third part of and there's I don't know. There's probably 50 60. Maybe 100 little organizations like that that the City Council has helped prop up and and the reason I bring this up is what has been the return on our investment. Have we gotten what we expect out of handing over the money over these past many years, and that's why we need some sort of full audit on this front. A full audit of every department. I mean, would that be nice? It would be nice, and we voted on that a couple of years ago and and, uh, scream. We screamed loudly that we thought there should be in course they thought we were wrong on that deal. Check this out. Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee are trying to wrap up the proposal for the $2.9 trillion tax hikes. Which would mean the largest increase in decades. In order to help pay for higher spending. Their reconciliation package is all according to the political. The Wall Street Journal reported that the proposal is expected to include raising the corporate tax rate. To 26.5% from 21% in enacting a 3% points surtax on individual income about $5 million House Democrats are also thinking about boosting the minimum tax on foreign income of US companies to 16.5% from 10.5%, as well as raising the top capital gains tax rate to 28.8% from 23.8%. It's one of the top states for attracting company. A proposal from the House Ways and Means Committee would increase the corporate tax rate to as much as 26, a half percent up from the 21% rate. Currently, in effect, tax rates for the wealthiest earners would also go up. The child tax credit offering up to $3600 per child would be extended. As with programs incentivizing affordable housing. Democrats are trying to include the provision in a wide ranging reconciliation package. That will need near unanimous support from within their party. Already, West Virginia Senator Joe.

"Basement as a backup system for the sewer and the water system. We did not sign on to be the overflow system. We're sick of it. We can't have any more. Some of you gotta do something about it. Well, it sounds to me like they just made a decision and said, You know what? This is too much money. It's probably not going to rain like he did. And, uh, 2016 for a long, long time. Let's just not worry about spending all this money right now and and we'll just continue on as we have in and stick to our budget. But as we're finding out when when this does happen, this is very expensive. It's expensive. For all the taxpayers who are helping out with the federal money that's coming in. It's expensive for all the homeowners who don't have everything covered, and it's expensive for the city, and and it's extremely damaging for the entire cities. Credibility When you're looking at the news all over the country, and you're seeing the the freeways are flooded out in thousands of homes are are are in water. How do we have any idea how much this might have cost them back in 2016 to put these systems in place? But we don't know. And I've heard estimates from as little as $1000 to as much as $9000. Depending on, you know, the system that you have, and and you know how much how much work A plumber has to do. But you and how many times have we seen this as government watchdog reporters where government says that we could do this? If it's going to be kind of expenses, so they don't do it. And then what everybody knew was going to happen happened and they spend Way more money. I think they're going to spend way more money. Providing people with some sort of compensation for this latest flood, then it would have cost to install these things and to save everybody the grief in the first place because you have to remember It's not just the property we lost. It's not just the time and everything. Every time it rains really hard on this side of town, we run into our basement, terrified that it's happening again. Because there's a trauma here. I don't want to get too dramatic about it. But I mean, this is something we shouldn't have had to go through, and we don't want to go through ever again. So, uh, I assume the Great Lakes Water Authority, boss ASU. Um What's your name? McCormick. McCormick. She She stepped down He is gone. Yeah. What? So what you you've been attending? At least by zoom. You've been attending the meetings. What? What are they saying? At Great Lakes Water authority. Now that we have information in 2016, we didn't do anything about it. Then Now we have the floods of 2020. And we and we have investigations are are we Are they talking about what they should have done in 2016? Are they saying? Well, we have to wait for all these investigations to find out what's recommended whether or not we want to spend the money and how to spend this federal money. Right. So I've been at every Great Lakes Water Authority board meetings since the flood. I was at last week's Detroit Water and Sewerage Department board meeting. I've been there online. I've been there in person when, when possible. I'm usually only one there. I'm definitely the only City Council candidate. They're trying to get answers and trying to bring about some positive change. But I asked them What are you going to do about this? What's your plan and they tell me the investigations ongoing. We're looking at this, but I will say the board has said it's crucial. That there's somebody like me there to hold them to their word that they are looking at some of these solutions because it is really a problem and they realize now that they screwed up and they are saying, we've got to wait for the investigation. But when I was at Detroit Water and Sewerage board meeting last week, I said What have you done since the last flood If preventative measures or corrections were advised, how many of those did you follow through on? What did you do? And they did not have an answer for me, but I'm going to keep going every time they get together to ask him for an answer, and if I'm the only one standing there, that's fine, but they need to know that we were affected. They need to see they were angry about this that we want answers and I have a petition at change dot org. Just look up Detroit flooding If you want to sign that petition, the more people we have on there, the more they're going to know that even if I'm the only one standing there, I'm not standing alone. Yes. So citizens can sign the then what? What? What should our leaders be? Do we have a city council? We have a mayor. We have people in charge of even the Great Lakes Water Authority. What should people be doing about this? So, the mayor has told Gary Brown and actually, a week after I propose these backflow preventers and sump pumps. The mayor spoke in Jefferson Chalmers. He came to visit the flood site with FEMA, and he said that he believes check valves which are similar to backflow preventers. And some pumps are a good idea, And he's asked Gary Brown to try and find the money to do that. And Gary Brown to his credit, has said that he's trying to do that. And now it sounds like they're going to use some of these federal dollars. This American Rescue Plan Act money. To provide us with some of this relief. Um, it's uh it's going to be welcome when it gets here. We just hope it gets here before the next rain because it turns out the last rain shouldn't have done to us what it did to us. And it's just, you know, I think the light has been switched on. But as you and I both know When politicians say they get it. It usually means they don't When they say they're going to do it. It usually means they want and that's why we need somebody who is going to be there, saying I remember what she said. I was there, and.

But that comes even as there's a renewed push in Austin. Pass the proposed bill that requires transgender students to play sports according to their gender at birth to discuss these and other developments in local, state and national politics.

They're both associate professors of political science at the University of Houston, where Geronimo's also associate director of the Center for Mexican American Studies and Co hosts News 88. Sevens Party Politics program. Beth Geronimo. Good morning. Morning, Beth Let me start with you. Mayor Turner Tuesday unveiled his proposed budget for next year for the city of Houston. What should we know about it? Well, It's one of the first times in a couple of years that we are not going to see a shortfall. So with the funds that air coming from the American Rescue Plan Act coming down from the Biden administration Um Turner has said that we will be able to have a budget that is going to meet the needs of the city as though he is holding back. Or more long term. Looking ahead to the next couple of Being from shortfalls. Alright, We're hearing some drop offs from you, Beth. And we're gonna put you on hold for a minute. See if we can work that out. Meantime, Geronimo does the influx of money coming from the federal government mean not just no layoffs this coming year, but possibly for the two years that follow. Well, possibly major. Turner said that he plans especially regarding five farted pay increase to have a three year plan. So in theory, we're expecting to see that from the The city is receiving around a little bit over $300 million from the America rescue plan, and that would have a significant impact on the on the project's off the city. But also it will require a certain extent. I mean, this is a one shot money inflict that we're going to get us a city so it will require two steel bouncing the partying in previous years. And also having a spending plan for the potential increases that we're going to see in some of the municipal workers paid. Yeah. S o the mayor again, indicating he plans to offer firefighters. Raise in an announcement next week. Geronimo wouldn't this still be subject to union approval? Well, Uh, yes. But, however, the fight for the union has said that they welcome obviously a pay increase. Um, they haven't taken ah, very strong position in whether they're going to be fine or not with it. Because we haven't heard what is exactly the plan that Mayor Turner plant soon fill next week. This is Houston matters. I'm Craig Cohen. We're talking with Beth Seamus and Geronimo Cortina about recent developments in politics. Let's turn to Austin. Now we're down to the final weeks of the regular legislative session. There have been a number of developments in recent days. The Texas House Tuesday formally approved House Bill three. This would reform the governor's emergency powers during future circumstances like the pandemic and give lawmakers more oversight, including the automatic convening of an emergency session. The Texas Senate has not taken this up yet. That Seamus will they I'm thinking that they probably will. You know we're running up against a lot of deadlines, but a zoo long as they're able to get that in. I think this is something that has broad support. It's just going to depend upon the exact measures. I know there's been a lot of battles over. You know whether or not we want to take you too far to say that nobody could enact a mass mandate or just exact details of it, But I think this is something that does have broad support. Geronimo! Why are lawmakers? Why is this broad support there for this? Well, I think, uh, Oddly enough, there is broad support, particularly from from Republicans, and and if that said, is trying to curtail the power of the governor, the governor is one of the most powerful. Governors in the country on they just want to have a saying In the in the process. The governor has been critiqued both from both sides from Democrats and Republicans saying on the one hand dad He didn't do enough. On on the other side that he did a lot imposing Mondays start perhaps violate our rights as a citizen, So there's going to be debate. There's gonna be, uh, mostly, most likely these bills going to go into conference when it goes to the Senate, and there's some modifications. And then in the conference is where the magic happens on everything is done, you know, behind closed always on and they have south differences. And perhaps come up with the bill that will be AH, provide both by both changes and then sent to the governor. Beth. The whole issue with emergencies is that they are emergencies. They tend to happen fairly fast and decisions need to be made quickly. That's not necessarily how state lawmakers operate. Eyes that being baked into whatever this final legislation may may entail. Well, there's still gonna be some powers of the governor. I think they're just going to be limited a little bit more, You know, Obviously, I think like with everything the government there's a reaction. When people aren't happy as Geronimo was saying, there were a lot of people unhappy on both sides, But what the long term consequences they're going to be. You're probably not gonna be fully evident until unfortunately, we see the next disaster or next emergency. Geronimo. On Tuesday, the Texas House passed a bill that would limit public school classroom discourse about race relations in the United States, specifically what's known as critical race theory, A similar measure has passed The Texas Senate. What is this all about? Well, it's all about trying to limit what can be intimate be taught in the classroom. So critical race theory basically argues that Raised has shaved our legal system on our legal institutions in this country, and it's a theory that analyzes how it shaved the policy making process. Into certain extent, cinders or limits or has a negative impact on minority groups. The state Legislature is saying, No, we cannot talk about the things we cannot argue that there is a race that is going to be superior or in fear in this case, and also we cannot argue that there's gonna be a sex that he's gonna be superior inferior..

"There is this thing out there that hey, healthcare is gonna be more affordable If I'm over 70,000. I'm looking at contributing about 8.5% of my income towards my health insurance costs, But I don't know what kind of plan to get. I don't know when to transition off of Cobra if my employer I'm gonna be on Cobra after I retire than transition off to the affordable care act. What is your typical advice to people wonder they come and sit down with you. And if you could walk us through that process that be helpful, because oftentimes if somebody's gonna retire next spring When one should they first reach out to you to start looking at plans and start estimating those costs. Very question. So if it's with the affordable care act or Medicare, we do recommend 90 days prior so if someone's pulling the trigger 90 days prior given contact with us We have a little syllable information form for the affordable care act to get idea of what? You know what type of plan Design What networks? They need An insane thing. We have a little info sheet. Or the Medicare. Aziz Well, but 90 days prior. That's the best best because then we can walk him through and explain him. That's what you need to do that for Medicare, you know, obviously little different process. We need to get a list of their medication. Of whatever plan they do on Medicare. We gotta make sure their medications they're covered. What about doctors? Kevin? I mean, if you think about this transition to retirement, if you're working for 35 years and all of a sudden boom, I'm retiring. My benefits are gone. You said Give us 90 days. Transition prescriptions. But what about keeping your doctor? Yes. So Medicare, Medicare. It's a little It's a lot more broad. Where the affordable care act If you're under 18 65, you have to use doctors and hospitals. Based on those companies. So, like all the periods we work with, they work with certain providers we've got in Milwaukee were spoiled here. We gotta roar up. Health Ascension Freighter, You know, we've got all the different Hospital networks and most people. Hey, I go to Aurora. I need a plan that works with Aurora will find him a plan to work with Aurora. Most people want to keep their doctor Kevin. I'm guessing right? Oh, yeah. Absolute, most majority of them do And because of the American Rescue Plan Act and the Affordable Care Act If you live in Waukesha County. If you're trying to do this yourself, there's 87 Affordable Care act plans. Figure out and a lot of people. Unfortunately, we've helped him fix it. But they don't go online. They picked the cheapest plan. And guess what? They now find out that their doctors, not in it. You know, so that that is something that we will walk him through and make sure Hey, you know you want say, you wanna keep your doctor. Let's find the plan that has your doctor in it, and we do that for the affordable care act. As well on the Medicare site involved Medicare that that is a lot more broad. It's pretty hard to not be not find it after in the Medicare side, so so for someone planning for retirement A year in advance or two years in advance, or Hopefully more than that. It gets more difficult to estimate those costs right because we don't know what's gonna happen after two years from now, with this plan Going with today's numbers. Um You said that 8.5% if your income Is above 70,000. Eyes. What you have to contribute. Is that correct? So so household, you're looking at $8500 years. It's 17,000 as a couple. Well, remember, it goes off of the plan designed so they make $100,000 a year. The maximum they were paying for a health insurance plan is $8500 for the year. Um, where? Prior to that you make the husband wife. They make 70,000 anything about 70,000. They don't know They do not get any any help whatsoever. So it's It's like I said, these higher incomes and within this ARPA if you're over the age 60, you actually get a lot more subsidy than if you are 59. All right, So you know it's for us. It's always Hey, let's run the race where we come in and and go from there. We've been talking about our poll, which is the American Rescue Plan Act with our guest, Kevin Truman Bach with your company's located in Brookfield, you said right?
