"Passports or mass mandates should businesses. continue to make those decisions individually. Or do you think we need some sort of consistency across the board before things can start returning to normal. And what do you say to states that have returned to normal. Well we believe that. The states ought to be able to govern their own affairs in terms of these kinds of of health requirements in these types of issues and in terms of a vaccine. Passport that sort of a catchall phrase. That comes loaded. no. I don't believe that government ought to mandate people to get a vaccine. They can make individual decisions we want them to. But a mandate is not appropriate not the role of government in this instance secondly when it comes to private businesses They ought to be able to make their decision. If if you're in a nursing home and the nursing home operator wants to have their employees to be vaccinated that ought to be their prerogative of of the business owner to be able to make that decision now. Most of the businesses are not doing that. But that to me should be their prerogative as a private sector business owner so no government mandates but let's leave private sector decisions to To them whether it becomes a mask in their business or whether it is the requirement for employees to be vaccinated. Okay governor. let's talk about something else liz. Cheney was removed from republican party leadership by the overwhelming. How vote in the house last week. And you were a vocal defender of hers saying that. She shouldn't be ousted for a quote unquote vote of conscience. Now kevin mccarthy insists. The gop is a quote unquote big tent party. That embraces free thought and debate. But when you see what just happened to cheney. What does that say to you about. Who has a place in the republican party as it exists today. And do you question your own face. There now no. I don't question my place in the republican party. I've been fighting the republican party for over forty years which dates me a little bit but we were very much of a minority in arkansas. When i became engaged and we're now the majority party. I want to get back to our principles. I know that we have the country at stake. And we want to have a message that resonates with the average voter as to the direction that we go in terms of. Liz cheney i i know what the they did not want to have somebody that was outside. The tent always talking about the election of january six. But the fact is everyone in america. Sees this as a punitive measure for someone speaking their conscience. And that's not good. Secondly it looks like the former president is directing who can serve in leadership. And that's not good. We have many voices in the republican party. I- i contrast it compare it to the view you have multiple voices representing the view. There's multiple voices that represent the republican party today and we should not defacto a make the former president as the guardian of our party or the leader of our party. There's many different voices out there. I want to be one but liz. Cheney is certainly one and so we need to be united in in the next election. We need to win in two thousand and twenty two and to do that. We've got to come together. And we have to come together around principles and not simply a personality so the magic one thing governor seventy percent of republicans. Believe the lie. That joe biden did not win the election. So how can you say that. It's still the republican party. You don't you believe don't you do believe that biden won the election. Oh absolutely By monday election trump lost the election in terms of yes in arkansas. You have the majority of our cans that are still supportive of president trump They like what he did in office and regretfully many of them have believed what has been said that the election was stolen. The election was not stolen is governed state by state. We follow those rules. I believe in the state Governance of of elections and so what's the role of republican leaders is just like liz. Cheney let's let's educate let's speak the truth. Let's i wanna speak the truth. And and over time i think history is going to say that this message is important and people understand what actually happened. Well i hope it's sooner rather than later because you know you can't have this kind of craziness in our election system but we don't go anywhere because we really.

You knew who still has on the party and he joins us now to talk about the impact. It's having on the gop. Please welcome the incoming chair of the national governor's association a such insane. And i believed that sonny has the first question but actually my name. Oh it's me so listen. While a lotta people are feeling hopeful about you. Know a return to normality from the pandemic your estate specs nation rates as at twenty nine percent. The president has said he wants it at seventy but what. What can you attribute to your the low rate in your state. And how are you want to handle it. Well thank you and of all. It's critical that everyone gets vaccinated. I've been vaccinated my wife. My children have about half. My grandchildren have depending upon their age. But that's critically important for us to get back to where we want in society in terms of our vaccination rate at arkansas everything we can to encourage vaccinations. we're improving access making sure we get it to the rural areas of our state the hard to reach places and part of the challenge Real estate makes it more difficult But it's also just the hesitancy that we see the reluctance about government. And so we're doing everything we can to educate and encourage more people get vaccinated one thing. I'm very pleased about the same change in their position about wearing a mask. Is that people needed to understand. There's a connection with freedom of life and not wearing a mask and being able to go about normal activities and getting a vaccination so hopefully this new guidelines emphasis will encourage more people and say there is a reward forgetting a vaccine and of course we lifted our mask mandate in arkansas long before of the cdc guidelines ban. And i hope that was encouragement here. And we're seeing people get the vaccine as a result of that now governor. You recently directed your state to end the expanded unemployment benefits ten weeks early cutting payments to as many as forty seven thousand jobless. Arkansas ones. you say it's an effort to encourage people to return to work but given the relatively low vaccination rate in your state. We we just mentioned that. What do you say to those who might still have concerns about heading back to work. Or maybe those who don't have steady childcare in place yet. Good good points and good questions. And the answer is we're doing away with the supplemental payment the extra payment That really encourage some people to stay at home or to slow down the return to work and we've got jobs plenty in arkansas. Our economy is doing well. Our unemployment rates at four point four percent. Which is almost full. Employers are looking for people to work and in terms of the two issues first of all in terms of health. Just simply vaccine. If you get a vaccine then you should feel totally comfortable going back to work without any hesitancy and so that in of itself should be an encouragement in terms of childcare. And that's an important point that we have as a result of the stimulus package has been passed in congress. We have one hundred and seventy million dollars that is available for childcare assistance in. So if you're working for a.

"Welcome back to the town hall review with you hear it. Earlier this week, Arkansas became the first state to pass legislation aimed at protecting you from making decisions before adulthood that could result in permanent physical harm, But not before the bill titled Arkansas saves adolescents and experimentation actors vetoed by Republican Governor Asia Hutchinson Right next day, But the Arkansas House and Senate voted to override the veto. Davis looks at the bill in the actions of Hutchison on 6 60 am the answer out of Dallas, Texas. Now the issue is gender. The Arkansas Legislature overwhelmingly passed a bill to draw a halt to the horrible abuse of Children through chemical castration and puberty blockers in this nonsense of taking kids who think they're the wrong gender and going with that And chemically altering them and doing surgery and God knows what else, the Arkansas Legislature said no more and God bless them for that. And then Governor Asa Hutchinson vetoed the bill. There's a happy ending because the Legislature overrode the veto 71 to 24 in the house, 25 to 8 in the Senate. So Asa Hutchinson bloodied by this defeat, decides as I guess Christy Nome did. Hey, what a great idea! Let's go on Tucker Carlson. That'll go well for me. I'll let you be the judge what you're about to hear. And this is important to chronicle all of this because as 2024 draws near is 2022 draws near, We're gonna win back the house. Maybe the Senate We have to look for candidates leaders, people to to carry the message of conservatism who are as blemish free as we can. And nobody perfect. I know. But if you've got somebody with just a massive blind spot or our spine that will turn to jelly. Ain't nobody got time for that. After Biden after the Harris Biden administration. We're going to have to be led by the most pardon me, Bad ass constitutional, fearless conservatives we can find. We do not have time for foggy thinking. We do not have time for soft spines. We do not have time for people who will buckle and surrender to corporate woke nous or anything else. So Tucker asked. Governor Hutchinson. Why in the world did you veto this bill? If this had been a bill that simply prohibited chemical castration? I would have signed the bill. But Tucker is you know, this bill was overbroad. He was extreme and went far beyond what you just said. And I made it clear that this if this was about prohibiting procedures, sex reassignment surgery. Absolutely. I would have signed that bill. But this again is the first law of the nation that invokes the state between medical decisions. Parents who consent to lunch And the decision of the patient. What the decision of the pace the patient is 12. This is the language of radical pro choicers. What are you doing? Getting between a woman and her doctor. Well, excuse me. We got a baby to save in there. What does this bill do? Was called the Save Adolescents from Experimentation Act that snappy. And it would've outlawed. The surgery would have also outlawed hormone therapy. And it would have brought this evil nonsense to a stop, even for people who are already receiving these treatments. It was exactly the right thing to do now, Governor Hutchins said again and why he didn't have the spine or the clarity to go with it. So this goes way too far. And in fact, it doesn't even have a grandfather clause that Those young people that are under hormonal treatment. If you're under hormonal treatments to turn you from a boy to a girl, This is a child who needs rescue rescue like this, correct you for a second. This is chemical castration. Of course, If you stop puberty and suppress the sex hormones, you're chemically castrating someone. So are our description was correct. But let me just ask you. I mean, they're all kinds of weird about minors, Children here and they're all kinds of things in Arkansas. Kids in every state are not allowed to do. Get married. Drink a beer. Get a tattoo. Why do you think it's important for conservatives to make certain that Children? Couldn't block their puberty be chemically castrate. Why is that a conservative value if you would tell us? Well, first of all, you have parents involved in very difficult decisions. You have physicians that are involved in these decisions. Some physicians are evil, some physicians or stupid Some physicians or quacks. Kids need to be protected from all of the above. And, uh, I go back to William Buckley. I go back to Ronald Reagan. Oh, sweet Lord, I'll tell you what, When you've got a squish when you gonna squish and the vice of pressure is being placed on him, they're gonna invoke Reagan. I want to do that. They're going to talk about their love of their past icons even as they erode their own conservatism and clarity right in front of your very eyes. Principles of our party. Which believes in a limited role of government are what a limited listen by the way as conservatives. We totally do believe in limited role of government. Hey, let's make a list of things. Conservatives think it's okay for government to do Stop a 12 year old from drinking a beer. Right. Stop a 13 year old from driving a car. Stop people of many ages from having an abortion and killing a baby. There's a there's a list of things as conservatives. We want government to do. Stopping the chemical castration of Children and the child abuse of transgender extremism is on that list and for a sin Hodgins or anybody else to try to shade that, or turn that into a gray area or or convoluted that Using the trying to wrap himself in the honorable cloth of limited government. I'm sorry it is. It's It's indefensible. We as a party, abandoning a limited role of government and saying We're going to invoke the government decision making over and above physicians over above healthcare over Yes, if those physicians are insane, Yes, if those parents are insane, yes above parents. And saying You can't do you believe it's health.

Twitter does does Mitch mcconnell need it. Express that donald trump shouldn't be commenting about politics. But they're all just attacking each other right all of these different constituency groups. This party seems to get more fragmented the more it. It doesn't seem to figure out how to distance itself from donald trump. Yeah you wanna talk about new terrain. It's having republicans attack corporate america. The republican chairwoman even saying in effect that she was gonna boycott basketball. It's hard to fathom lee a matter of years ago that you would hear words like that but i think it is this. This is why you're seeing this sort of culture war the coming culture war right now where they're fighting on issues. We've talked in recent weeks on these. Dr seuss type issues. These issues like what was going on with major league baseball and recent weeks because that is one issue that really does unify the republican party at large. It's an issue that they're passionate about it. Energizes donors it energizes the base here. More broadly and i think it's a place that you're gonna see. The conversation continue because republicans are on the outside as it relates to americans views on the economy covert relief was widely popular republicans across the board opposed it and beyond that notably. Some democrats are warning even as they this saying that. This can't be an effective strategy. Dan pfeiffer a name familiar. He was one of president. Obama's top advisors was critical of it but he said that this shift does pack a political punch instead. The democrats have to have a plan to fight back actually this year. The final comment on on here. It does look like the party. You heard governor hudson. There's a lot of people that want trump out of the party but they they don't seem to want to do anything about it and now it looks like they can't and there's even more people who want him out of the party privately But as of now that's not going to happen in the challenge. They are grappling with this. How do they harness some of that enthusiasm and populism and what he tapped into with the republican base while eliminating the more controversial aspects of trumpism.

"Joe biden himself has said that he's wide open on how big it would be on. What the corporate tax rate would be for mansion saying it should be twenty-five percent. They said they thought that was a good starting point in the conversations i've had with them and the deadline for this chuck. I'm told is by august recess. Oh four months. We're going to be talking about this for quite a while it's interesting. I remember when the deadline was july. Fourth it's already moved a month arguably which i think it was inevitable that it would move a bit when we come back. A republican governor finds himself on the wrong side of his own. Party's culture war. Arkansas is asia. hutchinson joins me now. A welcome back. One of the weapons. Republicans are using with an eye towards retaking powers to tar democrats on a number of cultural issues but sometimes republicans get caught in that. Crossfire when arkansas governor. Asa hutchinson vetoed a bill that would ban gender affirming treatments for transgender youth. The state's veto proof. Republican majorities in the house and senate overrode his veto by substantial margins and washington. Post op. ed last week hutchinson wrote. I'm being attacked by some of my republican colleagues for not being pure enough on social issues and for vetoing a bill that limited access to healthcare for transgender youth governor. Hutchinson joins me now governor. Welcome back to meet the press. I'm curious this was the third bill targeting transgender youth in some form in the issue in some form that had passed the legislature. Did you veto this third bill because of the specifics of the bill or was this or how much of it was enough already with these bills. That seem to be in search of of a of a problem that didn't exist. Each bill has to stand on. Its own i signed to that. I thought made sense was girls in sports Trying to protect women's sports the other one was Supporting medical conscience. That doctors can claim conscience reason if they want to deny particular procedure but they have to do emergency care and so. Those are two bills that i signed. The third one was not Well done it. Did not to protect the youth interfere with the government getting into the lives of transgender youth. As well as their parents and the decisions that doctors made and to me. It's about compassion. But it is also about making having the laws make sense in a limited role of government. And that's the case that i made in the washington post column that is republicans. We need to get back. Ask a question. Is this the appropriate role of government. Are we restraining ourselves. Look you've got quite a few and you're not your state. Legislature is not the only one like this. But you've got a quite a few of what i think would be described as loosely culture war bills or what. I'm going to describe as culture. War bills a bill that got withdrawn but wanted to ban anything that had to do with the sixteen nineteen project. You couldn't teach it in schools or another one that would have banned school tied school funding in case. You did this stuff. And i'm just curious. Why do you think there's so much focused among some members of the legislature on issues. That i you tell me. Is this really bubbling up in arkansas. Skull's well it's not but the fear is about the future and the fear is also that we're losing our culture and the case. I make though is that just because You want to keep things as they have been. Perhaps you don't need to use the instrument of the law. You don't need to use the state to accomplish that purpose in every instance There is the church there is society. There is your community and that's where the culture is is impacted or reflected in the future and again. There's too much as a republican party. The principles of limited government in its pushing freedom and choice in the free market. That's what the party is about. We've got to apply those principles even when it comes to the social war. But i'm curious if you're now if you if the voters inside the republican party don't agree with what you said. I want to put up something. Jonathan last from the bulwark wrote. He said republican voters no longer have any concrete outcomes that they want from government. What they have instead is a lifestyle brand and if you want to move up the ladder within a brand network you don't do it by governing or making policy. You do it by getting attention. A lot of these issues seem to be designed to get attention right rather than a solve a long term problem of governance. i think they're well intentioned is just that they're taking in the wrong direction and again restraint is the word. I don't want to criticize My republican legislators that i know their heart They believe in this. But i think did have said in my veto hopefully as a reminder to republicans all across the country as we look at a particular issues and and organizations trying to get us involved to pass laws to solve different problems asked the fundamental question. Is this the right role of government. Is there a better way to do. It is this reflecting the best. The republican party and is reflecting compassion. And i think those are important questions that i tried to ask in the bill that i vetoed and i think that message is an important one across the country. Let me ask you this about government interference because you've you've made a strong case limited government when it came to these decisions between a parent child their doctor. Somebody's going to hear that. And say how come you don't have the same view when it comes to abortion absolutely. That's an appropriate question. But as you know there's a big difference in the case of abortion and i've signed multitude of prolife bills i believe in protecting the life of the unborn. The distinction is that medical sciences..

We've also we have strengthened our physical security of the capital will tell me a little bit more about some of that. You said you've sent 500 National Guard troops to D. C. How money you are you keeping their capital in Little rock? Were keeping more than an adequate supply here. Now this is a civilian law enforcement effort here in our state Capitol. The National Guard is in reserve. And if need be, they would be called up. But we do not see a need at this point to call up the National Guard. But I've made sure that when we send 500 Washington we keep sufficient and reserve here. For our purposes. How tense are things there? I mean, the FBI has issued a warning that there are plans for armed protests at all. 50 State capitals. You know, I'm sitting here in Washington where as I As I said, when I introduced you, the fear of what may be to come is palpable. It sounds as though you feel you have adequate preparations in place to deal with whatever may be coming next week. The primary attention appears to me to be washing DC I expect rallies in different parts of the country and their state capitals. On and things are tense, not just because of the inauguration, but because of everything that happened last week. Because of the kroner virus, actually, and the restrictions have been in place and many areas of the country all of that has brought conflict. And it's been the greatest element of that conflict was, of course last week, and it And it brought everybody back to the realization that we can't have our democracy look like this, So I'd like to think that things have calmed down. But you have to be extra cautious because you don't want a repeat of that, Whether it's in our capital's sake, apples or in our nation's capital. Let me governor ask you this. I know some other governors. I'm thinking of Tim Walz of Minnesota. They have said they did not get any briefings from the Trump administration before last Wednesday, and what unfolded at the U. S Capitol even though there have been threats against state capitals. Are you getting the information that you need from the FBI and other federal agencies? Yes, I am this week. I've had my law enforcement team through the state Police be briefed by the FBI. I have them available to me as needed. In terms of their intelligence information. We have a fusion center and which the information is autumn regularly shared. The challenge, though, is that the intelligence is uncertain. It is difficult to interpret. And just because you're having a rally somewhere does not mean that that rally is designed for violence. But it also could mean that you have outside agitators come in to capitalize on the political rally. So you have to watch both the legitimacy of the protest or rally versus how other people can take advantage of it with armed conflict or with Intentional harm being brought brought two people. So what is your message today if I invited you just to speak directly to people listening there in Arkansas? And across the whole country about how things in these coming days need to unfold. That we all need to take a deep breath. We need to realize how important this transition is to a new president because the world watches and whether it's our state capitals are national capitals. Let's have peace and we understand disappointment. I'm a member of the opposition party. I supported President Donald Trump. But I also understand we need to transition and two A new administration and I'm supportive of that. And that's the example that I hope everybody in America understands the importance of that. That is a sad Hutchinson, governor of Arkansas, vice chair of the National Governors Association. Thank you for talking to us and good luck this next week. Thank you.
