"Our cruisers. We have a backlog on ship repair and modification and upgrades. So you know, that would be economic boom, not only tow repair yards in San Diego like NASCAR, but also in Mississippi, and right here insurgent day if the Navy got creative, so there's a variety of things you could do. From a defense perspective that would have an incredible economic impact. Well, the reconciliation has to go through each committee and I'm wondering if House armed services has done so and whether or not You. You just pass out copies of Jerry Hendrix is to provide and maintain a Navy, his new short book that is a primer on where it could go. They should It's $1.9 Trillion. It's so staggering amount of money not to put anything into the defense space. I mean and and these air union jobs. That does the Democrats on the House armed services have no sway. Well, first, let me say Jerry's book should be required reading for every member of Congress in various distinct fashion. It lays out the case for Sea power and why you see power so integral and has always been integral to American defense. So it's Jerry's Listen. He should know that I have a heavily dog eared and highlighted and Marked up copy and I were he went to Purdue. He doesn't know how to work a radio. I know he knows how to build ships, but he went to produce. He doesn't the radio stuff just completely. But battles and but to provide and maintain, is a good book and anyone your Democratic colleagues would realize they're creating union jobs when they do shipbuilding and shipyards. There's also there's also since relative the $1.9 trillion. There's some very small investments you could make. That would have a huge impact. For example, in the last budget cycle, last appropriation cycle them rink or asked for $125 million for 48 Tomahawks. Ground based long range precision fires with your absolutely integral to achieving the commandant of the Marine Corps Vision for the future of the Marine Corps distributed teams of Marines doing see denial. In the end of Pacific region, you know, basically holding the PL a Navy at risk for very small amounts of money, while the appropriators in their infinite wisdom. Zeroed out this request for absolutely no reason at all. And so for a very small amount of money, we could make up that lost ground and provide the common out, which is what with one of his top Priorities and that would have a direct impact on our ability to deter the Chinese Communist Party. And again, it sounds crazy. $125 million is a lot of money, but Relative toe $1.9 trillion. It's, uh, it's loose change you might find in the couch. Well, can't you on armed services and Rob Wittman and other members get together with Ken Calvert is the senior Republican on appropriations on the defense side. And go together and say, Hey, look, you want a bipartisan fig leaf for your 1.9? Trillion will give it to you, if you will, if you'll give us attempt of it, 1/5 of it and put it into a our 20th of it and put it into the Philadelphia shipyard. Great Lakes Shipyard. These cruise missiles that you're talking about. Just give us a fig leaf to defend. Is there no way that that can happen? There is on DSM of those discussions are happening behind the scenes and I will say at the time of intense partisan division, at least when it comes to defense. We do have some some champions of Of sea power in particular, and Joe Courtney is a great advocate and we work very closely on a variety of issues. And Jim Langevin, who I've worked with on the Cyber Commission has been the leading proponent of getting some of the cyber money in there. And your buddy Senator King Angus King of Maine. He's one of the 50 votes. They got to get. And so he can have whatever he wants, right? Have you called him up and said Angus put the money in the budget. He's also married to a Packers fan, So his judgment is so he's been very probably been sleeping on the couch because he probably noted that they didn't go for on fourth down too many times. Yeah, well, you know, America Sometimes America needs a king. Uh, you know, despite despite our history, and that now is that time, but no. Hey, can have whatever he wants, right? He and Joe mentioned you are the most powerful men in Washington right now. But yes, And obviously, Angus feels very strongly about shipbuilding and about cyber and just about defense, United States so This is something we're gonna have to make a more concerted argument in a bipartisan argument Tol the appropriators because that's a lot of money. And I worry Hewas we've talked about before. We may not get many bites at the Apple when it comes to a higher top line for defense when it comes to maintaining the 3 to 5% real growth that multiple secretaries of defense have said is absolutely necessary for the survival. The United States is former secretary Mattis said. America can afford survival and in a constrained budget, environment, post pandemic and within a defense department that seems like it wants to prioritize. Um or domestic priorities, as opposed to Geo political priorities were going to be struggling over the next 2 to 4 years to make that case for Investing in defense. We're not only fixing our readiness crisis but realizing the military rebuild that we talked about, but never actually funded. Well, the next 2 to 4 weeks. Spends more than the top line increases total will be over the next 2 to 4 years. And so I I wish you luck in trying to get people to pay attention that quick question. Of their 1.9 trillion that I've seen the only thing I like. It's the $3000 per kid tax credit. It's the least bad amount of the spending. Are you in favor of that? Well, I actually think Senator Romney's proposal is a bit more creative because it's simultaneously sweeps away a lot of the existing outdated programs and credits the child tax credit. Can it earned income tax credit, so it's a meaningful bureaucratic. Consolidation, what the same time being a generous benefit for families and for kids. It's very creative and some of the most innovative policy making I've seen in the post. Trump environment from the GOP in a long time, So I'm actually talking with Senator Romney and his team right now about the House version of that bill, but it is encouraging to see Republicans get into that game and I salute him for that effort. I agree and and that, by the way, they ought to be willing to trade some minor tweaks to their proposal in order to get some Republican bipartisan support, because if you offered, they turned it down, we will have a story to tell of what they preferred, which was Bureaucracy and public employee unions, not defense and families, My Gallagher thank you, Congressman Remember fourth Down matters You want to tell the Packers that when you're in town, put up, put up a sign that says, Just go for it. That's all you need. Do is it put up that sign.

As an act of sincerity, you open it and start eating chopper, otherwise they think you're going to re gift it. Imagine chocolate. I just couldn't resist. It's one of my passions. I have a good rapport with a Senator leader McConnell because we were both appropriate as I said earlier probations and intelligence where to the committees. I was forged four when I had absolutely no intention of running for congress much less run for leadership. But I was fortunate as committees which in those days were very much bipartisan committees. And I do say left to their own devices the appropriators Canada, come to a solution. And they did in this Bill that the president recently, son. So Mitch and appropriate him. We have that. History.

"He can say I tried my best the base, and it's an excuse. He has a foil, then it becomes like new back to drain the swamp more. So that we can actually make it happen semi backs and make me president again. So I can point even more judges. So they don't stop me. And so, you know, it just it it gives him an talking new talking point that he did everything in his power now with with the national emergency declared him attempting to do this on the wall. I is this the end of kind of big brings manship. Chip spending fights over over the next couple of years or are there? Just hurdle. More hurdles after hurdles laid out before us, just the first one. This is the first hurdle. And you know, interestingly this was supposed to be an easy hurdle. Yeah. I mean, appropriators Democrats and Republicans had come up with funding bills that they felt really comfortable with in late December. You know, Trump got talked onto the ledge by conservative commentators and some members of the house freedom caucus into. That's why you shut down the government back in December. But the the budget fights coming up, we'll be much worse. You know, you need the government needs to raise the debt. Limit. That's going to be epic. They need to deal with the budget caps. These are going to be much much bigger fights. I think because then you'll have, you know, Trump, Wayne and congress Wayne, and you fiscally concert fiscal conservative groups, people will be much less align. There'll be a lot of noise around that. And I think that they'll be much worse. Exciting. But it's also going to cause problems within the Republican party is going to create more cracks in the ideological foundation there because all of a sudden they've conceded on everything what does the party believe anymore? I thought that they were against the expansive executive use of executive authority that they were so pissed off about the Obama administration while turns out, no, they don't really care about that. They don't care about anything anymore. And also, you know during the Obama administration they were crowing about the size of the national debt. And how big it was. And how terrible it was that tax package that, you know, Republicans past blew a huge hole in the deficit. No one seems worried about that at all now that Republicans are in power. And so you know, that will be part of the president's budget that comes out, you know, he has to release his budget that will be part of the debt ceiling fight, you know, Republicans will get religion on fiscal restraint sometimes, but then other times when they've been in power. They just have blown up. Deficit. Well, it's really remarkable to have watched the president's chief chief budget adviser. I mean, I guess now he's chief of staff. Mick mulvaney. Right. But he he was the chief hellraiser on deficits and budget issues from the moment he walked in the door and in congress in twenty eleven right, Charlie. I don't understand how some of these people live with themselves and justify it. I mean for somebody who comes in is a hawk who obsesses over fiscal responsibility and discipline, and does it with great drama and flourish through other career them walk in and toss it all out the door. I don't know..

"I'm David jolly in the CNN political director today coming at you from Houston, Texas, and this is the daily DC. Thanks so much for listening today on the podcast. There's a deal, but it doesn't make the president happy. That is the first official reaction. We're getting from the president of the United States to the deal that has been hatched between Republican and democratic appropriators legislators both in the house and the Senate to keep the government funded through the rest of this fiscal year and avoid another government shutdown just three days from now the president's first reaction to this deal. I can't say I'm happy. I can't say I'm thrilled. This is after of course, Sean Hannity on Fox News called it a garbage compromise that any Republican who supports it will have to explain that's quite a different sound from Mitch MC. Connel the Senate majority leader who this morning was saying this is good news. And who was also in his comments, clearly pointing the president. If he would listen in a direction of how to claim this as a victory. That's what this is coming down to. So you hear the president in his words, and initial reaction giving voice to his conservative base. Not happy not thrilled. What you did not hear from the president. As of yet as I'm recording. This podcast is a threat to veto this a refusal to put his signature on it should indeed this compromise come to his desk in the form of legislation. Now, John Cornyn who was riding on the plane on Air Force One on the way back from Texas yesterday with the president also a little skeptical of how the president might respond. He interpreted the president's interpretation as thin gruel. So again, everything we're hearing all the tea leaves were reading is that the president is going to express unhappiness and discomfort with this deal. And why well because he didn't get what he wanted on the wall. I mean, the one point three billion in change for fifty five miles of fencing is not at all what he wanted. He was asking for five point seven billion four concrete wall initially. That's not what he's getting. He's not even getting the one point six billion that was agreed to back in December in a bipartisan fashion. He's getting less than that. And he shut down the government over that. So now he's getting less than that. But what is he getting? And this is what Mitch McConnell is pointing to he is getting funding for a barrier fencing, what have you he is getting border security barrier funding, and he made the Democrats completely backed down. From this notion of capping detention beds with an arbitrary number. They say with the stated goal of making sure that the detention beds were being used for criminals beyond the illegal crossing for violent criminals for other offenders and not for children or families who came into the country illegally. However, the Democrats completely folded on that for the most part so McConnell was also clearly making it his comments to the president make sure to acknowledge that he's sort of showing how to claim victory here. But what the president is doing in his reaction instead of taking a victory lap on getting the Democrats off their Mark on detention beds instead of claiming victory that he's getting some barrier funding here, despite the fact that Democrats had long said there would be no wall funding in the Bill. Instead what he's doing is allowing his base to know that he's very unhappy with this deal, but he's not refusing to. Sign it. And so once again, three days before shutdown all signs are pointing to avoidance of a shutdown and the president going along with this, and then perhaps taking some additional executive action. But the other point the president made in the cabinet room..

"And I think one side or the other has to back down in order for there to be a deal, and apparently that has happened again. But there are no details part of the story. Now, the president is at the border for a rally murderers and drug dealers and gang members MS thirteen in some of the worst people in the world coming into our country. And this is forming. Rally as Baidoa Roka's also holding a rally, and there's some unhappy voices in El Paso as well where the president is saying it. Well, it was very unsafe place before a wall.

And now the EU is looking at the potential of sanctions or a joint warning in San Francisco, I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Add hang in there with me because I've got to an Edgerton the Bloomberg reporter from Washington live on the line from Capitol Hill on the latest developments with respect to house and Senate negotiators kind of reaching a deal in principle to avoid what would have been a second or perhaps could still be a second government shutdown deadline is Friday. And a pleasure to have you on the program. Philipson what you know so far. That's right. I just spoke with appropriators from both parties in both chambers. And they did say to have an agreement in principle. This is usually how rational negotiations work. They will work out the top line numbers. And then their staff will kind of iron out the details as allowing she is the top appropriate or Democrats in the house. And she said, she ran the steel pass Nancy Pelosi. Signed off on this Louis shitting Renan's any problems on a house. She said that she expects to have the actual legislative pets of deal by Wednesday. Now that means that the house would have to waive their rule that requires three days to review legislation before voted on. But I did speak with the rules chairman Jim McGovern, and she said that that's something. They would definitely do in this situation to avoid a shutdown. Let me let me ask you, do you. Do you think that President Trump is a wild card here? And is there any inkling of whether we know about wall funding. The president is always a wild card. I did ask that question to Richard Shelby. Top Senate Republican on the appropriations committee, and he said that he thinks White House is behind the deal. And I asked him how he knows that. He said from the latitude they've given us. So it does sound like the White House has backed off and said you led the appropriators work out what they can pass a tuba chamber, and the president will sign it as long as Republicans said that Republicans have both chambers have signed on as well. So that's the information that we have all we have been here before and the president scuttle the deal right before Christmas. But as of now all sides are good. It seemed like when it came to the number of immigration detention beds earlier. This was an immovable thing for the president would be kind of surprising. Wouldn't it not? I mean, if he were to give in on this. Point. What does it that's came up as an issue yesterday morning? And it was something that Democrats enlisted in their original offer last month that they want us to limit the number of fed sixty us for nonviolence nonviolence. Immigrants who are here illegally and the president had a seize on this irrational request or something that wasn't part of the originally though that it was it just wasn't feeling central figure with all the talk about the wall. So I don't think this is still breaker.

"But clearly he envisions that as central to his political strategy interested. So I think that that is the context in which the speaking I understand I understand. But I do think that. We have said that we in the past have supported enhanced fencing and barriers wear appropriate particularly around our legal ports of entry, which as you know, are the areas where the overwhelming majority of drugs, I believe ninety percent or so of the fennel end or heroin seized in this country, come into legal ports of entry. So we've supported that in the past, and I would expect that that's something enhanced fencing that we would continue support moving forward where it makes sense in an evidence based fashion, and that seems to me to create some room to arrive at a bipartisan negoti, you're obviously carbonated the negotiations that are going on are you what your level of confidence that there will be some sort of agreement. The good news is that as it is often said, the three types of members of congress, Democrats Republicans in appropriators and right now, you've got appropriate.

We're not gonna waste billions on what we are referring to as a medieval Boorda walk because that's a fifth century solution to a twenty-first-century problem if we're allowed to solve this with twenty first century border security, which could involve some degree of enhanced fencing, but more importantly, additional investments in personnel, particularly customs personnel.

Conferees begin government funding talks - live updates

"The Bill that came out of the Senate appropriations committee this summer with bipartisan support had one point six billion dollars in funding. And it has things that they call barriers and the house appropriations committee which had a five billion dollar a slug of money for border security. Also, talked about barriers isn't necessarily the concrete wall that people have been talking about for a while. But appropriators have pointed out that we have how fencing we have had barriers in some places for a very very long time. And so it's really a lot about semantics and also about getting beyond barriers and talking about technology and talking about more personnel, and then Gration judges and support staff. Breath and places to accommodate people who are coming across the border. So there are a lot of different things. But appropriators wrote bills that dealt with a lot of these issues during the past year and the year before of course, and they know the issues, and they'll probably ready with a lot of different proposals to go over, and it won't be just wall that they're talking about or barrier. However, that's defined, but it will be a multifaceted thing. So is the wiggle room in these negotiations? And in the in these semantics to allow both sides to declare victory and move on. I'm sure that there will be and there may be something that can be described as barrier or wall that will set of satisfy the president. There was interesting talk this morning from Senator mansion talking about how maybe there would be a two year deal. Maybe they spread out that five point seven over two years. And then the president. Dan could claim victory on the other side could say that they held them to a certain amount in this fiscal year. And that it wouldn't all be wall. But there would be other aspects of border security like technology that both sides really support. So I think in the end they can come up with something that both sides will claim victory about if they don't the president maybe can declare victory in a different way. He could declare that national emergency to try to get access to federal funds that haven't been appropriated for this. Then it would go to court, and even if a court struck it down he could tell his face that he thought this fight, and he could blame it on the judges that he wants to replace that's bad another important priority for him.

The White House isn't ruling out another shutdown

"Who say the shutdown. She'd be taken off the tip. I'm not going to get into the hypotheticals of taking that off the table. Okay. So that's not down as is on the table. The president thinks the odds of no deal are are high higher than the odds of a deal. And it came on the day, we found out that it is costing nited states three billion dollars for the shutdown. That's according to the CBO and only twenty percent of Americans actually support shutting down the government again that is a bipartisan and overwhelmingly resounding statement people don't want it Kaitlan Collins out front of the White House tonight and Caitlyn that is the big question. The president dangling out there again. Right. Are we headed for another shutdown? Yeah. And that's really the question here. But what it's going to come down to Aaron his largely two things one. Whether or not those congressional negotiators can find a deal, not just finding a deal, but also one that could pass both chambers of congress and get the president's signature now as you noted in that Wall Street interview, Wall Street Journal interview, he expressed doubt that they could come to a deal, but the president isn't the only one who skeptical here because both sides have drawn these red lines not only the president saying he dealt take anything less. Than five point seven billion. But also with the house speaker Nancy Pelosi being on camera calling the wall and immorality now. The one bright spot that White House. Aides have looked at lately who's on this committee. That's trying to find a deal, and it's none of the hardliners mostly you see these appropriators here who are used to finding a compromise. And have said they would like to do. So for this. Now, if they don't Richard deal, and they don't reach one that either Nancy Pelosi lights or the president likes. Then the president has said that his top choice essentially here is to invoke a national emergency therefore bypassing congress to fund his border will. So that's the question here. One thing we did learn today. Erin is that the president will get the chance to make the argument for his border wall during that televised prime-time address during the state of the union, which is going to be one week after it was initially scheduled to happen. All right Caitlin. Thank you. Out front tonight democratic congressman Roque Khanna. He's a member of the house oversight committee. And I appreciate your time. Congressman look the president is putting the odds at less than fifty fifty that the bipartisan group of congressional negotiators will get a deal before there's another shutdown. So so he he has the odds for a shutdown where do you put them? Very discouraging. I think we can get a deal done. The Democrats are willing to fund border security. We're willing to fund smart border security, even give more than five point seven billion dollars. We would give ten billion dollars, but we're not going to get money for the fifteenth century idea for wall. And I think the president if he can move beyond his campaign promises could easily get a reasonable deal. So I in the interview of the Wall Street Journal, the president said he would not rule out another shutdown. Right. His quote, certainly an option. That's what he used to describe another shutdown. Now, look we we know from the most recent polls Americans overwhelmingly don't want that outcome. According to Monmouth, right? That is a bipartisan take from people in across the country. Do you believe the president will go ahead with another shutdown? Does he think that that's a real alternative? I don't for two reasons one. The polling showed that it was unpopular for him. But more importantly, his own economic advisor said that it was costing the country point one three percent of GDP every week. The president knows that he's nowhere. If this economy falls into recession or tanks. I just don't think he's going to take that kind of risk again. So when you talk about being willing to give something for border security, but not a wall at this is this is what it all comes down. To sometimes words are not just words. Sarah Sanders today was asked about it. She said that you all Democrats need to give something here. She is. They don't come back with the deal. That means Democrats get virtually nothing that will make the president and force him to have to take executive action. That does not give Democrats the things that they want. Will you vote for deal, congressman content? That includes some wall, I will not. And I think the president is miscalculating his odds on executive action. Let me Senator Rubio Senator blunt have said that they would not support the president in declaring a national emergency. And as you know, we could invoke section five of the national emergency act and the congress capacity joint resolution to overturn it. Now, it would require veto proof majority. But the question is whether Senator Rubio and blunt and others would stick to what they said they would do. Well, of course, Senator Graham has already said he supports a national emergency. I mean, I guess I guess the reality of it is are you willing to take one? Well, I would vote to overturn it. And I think it's clearly unconstitutional. I mean Harry Truman when he declared a national emergency to nationalize steel for the Korean war the court so that that was unconstitutional. So certainly this is not going to be a constitutional exercise of the president's power. But here's the point. We're all for reasonable border security in the president. If he just gets passed the wall, and if you'd thinks about what's commonsense can get a deal. I mean, people say well road, you have you have security in your own house. But I don't build a wall around my house. I have an alarm system, I represent Silicon Valley technology solutions that are effective. And my hope is the president will see that. Now, of course, the president points at communities, you know, whether it's a layer San Francisco anywhere across this country and says, well, they have walls to and in fact when he gave in here, right? No other word for it. Right. He caved and the government reopened, and he didn't get any money for his wall. At that time. He was slammed by his. Base for doing that. Here are a couple of people. He promised something for eighteen months. And he lied about it. She has just whipped the president of the United States. He just reversed himself. That's a victory for Nancy Pelosi. Okay. When he hears that from people that he cares deeply about. He cares. What they think about him. He cares that they reflect what he thinks his base wants, do you think that will make him dig in even more? He doesn't wanna look like a loser. Unfortunately, they're calling the shots. And this is the base that he thinks got him elected. But leadership is about convincing your base to do something that makes sense for the country. The president of everyone knows has a lot of loyalty from his base his poll numbers are through the roof still with that forty percent of the country that voted for him. I think if he turned to them and said, look, I'm going to getting border security. We're getting funding for smart border security, and it doesn't have to be about a fifteenth century. Well, I actually think the vast majority of his base would stay with him. So I think he is over relying on the end Coulter's and isn't doing what would. The vast majority of the country wants all right? Well, thank you very much. I appreciate your time tonight. Thank you for having me on and next is the president trying to bait.
