"But i've said this before i may have said it. Before in the show the worst thing you can be called as a racist. The only the only way we can talk about. Transgressions of the moral order is in terms of race. And the reason for that is we've adopted in many ways materialist view of the world so our view of the world only runs skin deep. Now we deny that god exists. We deny that a moral order exists. We deny that there's anything beyond the flesh and the president and yet we still intuit that some things are right and some things are wrong so the only way that we can discuss them is using. The language of skin is using the language of physicality. This is why you heard around nine eleven. You heard people warning against anti muslim racism. As we pointed out that islam is not a race is a religion. So if you don't like muslims or you object to islam- you are not doing so on the basis of racist and you're doing so on the basis of your religious views. You're doing so on the basis of your philosophical views or your sociological views. But not racist. That's the only way that we can talk because we're stupid because we've got an extremely stupid in this culture and we do not possess the philosophical or political sophistication to debate these things.

Progressives propose Medicare for the Uninsured
"Let's talk about the news of the week. The fight for having a relief. Bill that actually addresses what is going to be a massive health insurance crisis on So we had a bill introduced by Representative John Paul and Bernie Sanders in the Senate and then just Today actually as we're recording this this'll be yesterday as you're listening. Nancy Pelosi and House Leadership Democrat leadership in the House came out with a different proposal. We haven't seen language yet but this is clearly going to be the two kind of competing visions for next relief bill from the Democratic side so far icy silence from the Republican side. We don't even know if they're going support another relief bill at all Although I think the pressure is just going to become a hard to avoid once all of this unemployment leads to lack of insurance soon So the basic overview. Let's let why don't we start with the Sanders? John Paul Bill since that came out. I What they've proposed these of course are the lead sponsors of the Medicare for all legislation in the House and the Senate And this is not a medicare for all proposal. But it's kind of a stopgap proposal during the credit crisis. So what they've said is that Medicare should cover everyone who does not have health insurance And that Medicare will cover all co payments deductibles and cost sharing for everyone else. That's where people who have private insurance who have public insurance Like Medicaid or the Veterans Administration Or Medicare for that matter And that that will Last in effect until a vaccine is widely available to the public And the thinking of course is that we literally just cannot address this pandemic without everyone having access to healthcare Otherwise everyone who slipped through. The cracks of the healthcare system is going to be Is going to be unable to access. Care avoiding care when they need it and more likely to spread The contagion so Stephanie. What do you think about proposal? That came out of Japan. Senator Sanders Office. Well when I first heard about this proposal I thought it was perfect because it gives us a way to sort of expand public health insurance and it also fulfils the moderate concerns about allowing people to stay on their health insurance and all the stupid rationales for supporting a public option versus Medicare for all and that has always been the moderate case against Medicare for all right it's too disruptive maybe amid Medicare for all is in theory better but people are just so happy with their private insurance. Who Am I? Who are we to argue with them? And maybe they need a chance to try it out. And that's the impetus behind the whole public option. And you know they always say that. The of course. The goal is universal healthcare. But what the pathway. How do we get there? You know the details matter well. Here's your chance you know. Millions kicked off their insurance by no fault of their own at a time. When it's not actually safe to go outside but as far as I know no other members of Congress besides Sanders and Paul have supported this plan. Yeah I don't even know if it's been you know. They've barely rolled it out. It just came off the shelf. So we're us. The movement are going to have to build support for this bill. And you know it's interesting because this plan is kind of like some of the competing plans that you know. The centrists who were running for president were running on This doesn't resemble like the Biden plan but it is kind of what like Baidoa Rourke was was backing. It's a little bit like will cover everyone with the public plan. But we'll keep somehow the private health insurance in the workplace health insurance And I think the reason it's important to acknowledge why this is not a replacement for Medicare for all it needs to be. Temporary is the cost right. The the downside of doing it this way is that you don't get most of the savings that you get from Medicare for all system which really comes from like simplifying the system and you're cutting out all this administrative waste hospitals and doctors only have to deal with one pair they don't have to deal with fifty different payers. And that's how Medicare for all works by creating although savings you can afford to cover everyone else afford to have no co payments and deductibles. It is much more expensive to do it. This way to keep the private insurance companies in their keep all this complication waste in the system and expand coverage to everyone But I think you can do it temporarily as a stopgap measure And so I think it would be a good stepping-stone and people we literally cannot address this crisis with more and more people losing access to health insurance so I think it'll be an interesting fight. Yeah and it could arguably be even less expensive than giving subsidies to private health. Insurers who who made just end up pocketing. Well obviously we'll end up pocketing the profits but also will not be actually giving out any care outside of probably a lot of corona virus care because people aren't actually going to the doctor for anything else right now that's a fact that's not arguably that's it would definitely be cheaper to cover people through expanding medicare than it would be through throwing money at private
Winners and Losers of the Democratic Debate
"The Democratic Party is trying to figure out who it is during these presidential primary debates the big it's the big highlights that you see we'll go through some of them it's all the Sniping Amy Klobuchar and Liz Warren and Kamala Harris get some shots in their Liz worn the people going after Elizabeth Warren then you've got booed edge in Baidoa going after each other and that's all very interesting the central fact of the debate is that Biden is falling apart his polling is collapsing his ability to stand on stage is collapsing Bernie Sanders had a heart attack a week and a half ago he seemed much much more lucid and vibrant and energetic than Joe Biden did and to our knowledge Joe Biden hasn't had any heart attacks this was all about your and he just he was saying things that didn't make a lot of sense he was kind of losing his train of thought he was pushing different analogies together it just didn't and buyer confidence that this is the guy at one point biden was explaining his economic plans and he said he was gonna he was gonNA stop people from clipping coupons in the stock market get what I've talked about is how you get things done and the way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now the idea we have to start rewarding work just wealth I would eliminate the capital gains tax that would raise the capital gains tax to the highest rate of thirty nine point five percent I would double it because guess what why in God's name should someone who's clipping coupons in the stock market make in fact pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is like I said a schoolteacher and a firefighter it's ridiculous and they pay a lower tax so none of that is true nothing he said even comes close to approaching truth to be I don't even know how you judge the truth value of the statement clipping coupons in the stock market because people do not clear up coupons in this I guess they would be really just really good frugal stockbrokers if they clipped like if there were some coupon to get a better price on some mm some portion of a company doesn't make any sense I think what he was trying to say is people gambling in the stock market that's that's a frequent analogy you hear from the left and that it's unfair the people who are gambling are paying lower tax rate than their secretaries this is aligned Warren Buffett's used this line it just isn't true it is not true at all where does it come from it's because the capital gains tax rate is lower than the income tax rate for some people actually eat for people Oh who you know if you're talking about your secretary you're talking about the you know the janitor is paying more higher tax rate than the the stockbroker or the on manager of that perhaps isn't isn't true anyway even on the income tax rate but what happens is for a lot of people work in finance they get a salary but then they get most of their money as a bonus or in when you're talking about the millionaire billionaire class they're paying capital gains on the or paying capital gains taxes on their investment income so you're not even talking about bonuses you're not talking about income you talk about money that's in the market that's investments and then the money that you make out of those investments you pay a lower tax rate even on that that is money that has already been taxed at the corporate level so even that argument is not true but y the way this gets interpreted is that billionaires are paying less money in taxes than their secretaries that is never that's not even close to true the wealthy in this country pay virtually all of the taxes the top ten percent pay the vast majority of taxes in this country top one percent pay a lion share of taxes in this country I mean the half of the country doesn't pay any taxes at all in terms of federal income taxes so this whole argument is bogus the problem with Biden is not that he's making a bogus argument everybody was up there said he wasn't even making the argument well and he was confusing his words and then here's the knockout punch they brought up Ukraine Anderson Cooper brings up Ukraine and Joe Biden incredibly lies on camera again and says he never discussed Ukraine with us President Yeah as you've said your son Hunter today gave an interview admitted that he made a mistake and showed poor judgment by serving on the board in Ukraine and did you make a mistake by letting him you're the point person on Ukraine at the time if you can answer book my son statement speaks for itself I did my job never discussed a single thing with my son about anything having to do with their crane known is indicated I have we've always kept everything separate even when my son was the attorney general of the state works we never discussed the there'd be no potential conflict okay there's a lot of confusion here first of all he says he's doubling down on a statement that he made that no one his ever suggested that Joe Biden talked with Ukraine or talked with his son about Ukraine and there's no evidence of that at all the trouble is someone has suggested that the person who suggested that was Hunter Biden in a New Yorker profile in July and he actually reiterated that statement on good morning Arca on ABC News two days ago did you and your father ever discuss you know as I said only time was after news count it wasn't a discussion in any way there's no to this no we never did what hold on hold on you say did you ever discuss Ukraine he goes no just one time there was one time we I'll shoot they told me not to say that no there's no but we didn't we wasn't even a discussion sure we said something he said something we were talking about it but that's not I wouldn't call that a discussion it was more of a discourse it was more of a Colo Que- it was next question place past next question Joe Biden even in his answer by the way he says we never talked about Ukraine even when my son was the attorney general of Delaware that's not the sun we're talking about joe his Sun Beau Biden his late son Bo Biden was the attorney general of Delaware the son who was on the Ukrainian Energy Board was Hunter Biden and hundred says he did talk about it and Hunter Biden goes on because good morning America their credit actually pushed him on it. There's an old saying you didn't talk about it then you're saying you did talk about it by the way what were you doing on the board in the first place that I hope you know what you're doing doing I said I do and that was literally the discussion why because my dad was vice president United States there's literally nothing as young man or as a full grown adult that my father in some way has not influence over as it does not serve either one of us when he said I hope you know what you're doing what did he think you were doing well he read the press reports that I joined the board of reasonable which was eight Ukrainian natural gas company and there's been a lot of misinformation Shen about me not about my dad nobody buys at but advises idea that I was unqualified to be on the board what were your qualifications to be on the border berries I was sharing with the board Amtrak for five years I was the chairman of the board of the UN World Food Program I was a lawyer for boies Schiller flexner one of the most prestigious law firms in the world didn't have any extensive knowledge about natural gas or Ukraine itself though no but I think that I had as much as anybody else that was on the board for yeah this is this is not going well for Hunter Biden because he's right he probably didn't have any less knowledge than anyone else on the board this is a crooked board that's what really anti boards are certainly an oligarch countries like Ukraine when and corrupt countries like Ukraine they say what previous experience did you have what qualified you to be on the board of this Ukrainian energy company while you're while your father was vice president as well I was on the board of Amtrak you know that other company that has a relationship to the federal government that my father famously travels on so much that they call him Amtrak Joe Yeah it was on that so what are you calling me a nepotistic for and before that I was on another board and hey look I did have one real job I worked for boies Schiller which is maybe the most famous democratic lobbying law firm in the country okay all right doesn't acquit himself very well here so biden collapses on stage in real time two ways to respond to this for the Democratic Party and for the candidates they can either remain hardline progressives or they can try to take Bernie Haddens place in the moderate lane because the moderate lane now is falling apart so there is an opening here I was wondering I thought why on Earth was the Lgbtq townhall on Friday what was the purpose of this and then it occurred to me people were tweeting about this they had that LGBTQ crazy town town all on Friday because then it allowed the Democrats to look more moderate at this debate just a week later less than a week later while we're having to discuss any of the LGBT issues in the pronouns and the genders so there was a real opening and I think the Democratic Party tried to try to make sure it looked in opening four moderate now some candidates can't take that Bernie Sanders is never going to be a moderate he went full bore leftist last night he said on the collectivist issue Parekh Salon climate change you said it's the greatest threat that the planet has ever faced this planet faces the greatest threat in its history from climate change and the green new deal that I have advocated will create up to twenty million jobs as we move away from fossil fuel energy efficiency and sustainable energy all right the weather which may or may not increase in temperatures slightly a little bit over the next century he is the greatest threat the planet has ever faced says Bernie Sanders the man who probably never heard of the Cretaceous Paleo gene mass extinction event three quarters of it wiped out he probably hasn't heard of that one so he's just it's a little historical ignorance for him that's the far left that's about as far left as you go with Bernie Sanders Baidoa Rourke so trying to play into that left Lane Betas campaign is falling apart I mean there's pretty much no reason should be at this debate anymore and so he's he's been trying to signal that he's as left as they come over the past few months this is after a career where he played himself off mostly as a moderate in Congress and so he obviously doesn't believe in anything but he felt leftism was going to bring them all the way it looks like that's not gonna work so he's one last tries going to say that we're going to undermine the second amendment he's GonNa take away all your guns go door to door take them all away how exactly are you going to force people to give up their weapons you don't even know who has those weapons look we're GonNa make sure the the priority is saving the lives of our fellow Americans I think almost everyone on this stage agrees that it's not right and as president would seek to ban the sale of fifteens and AK47's those are weapons of war they were designed to kill people effectively efficiently on a battlefield to be clear exactly how are you going to take away

"Like it Bernie Sanders says get rid of all them. And then when the. Green new deal is embraced by people like him and people like bid or rock, Elizabeth Warren. Those are millions and millions of more jobs in the oil industry and coal in auto production, truck, driving and all the related services. All of them are shed to has Baidoa Rourke or Elizabeth Warren ever said how to replace literally millions of jobs that are paying twenty seven dollars an hour. How did they say how do we how do we replace those? Well, that's a great question. And it's something that hasn't really talked about as I mentioned, he cited job training grants. He didn't really go into what that meant that the absurdity of plans such as betas or Alexandria, Kaci protest green new deal is that the popular attitude that people have towards it underscores.

"A main. I'm not saying the easiest let's not politicize it what we need is. I said we need the proper legal processes at the border. So that these issues have judicata to determine whether or not people should be entitled to asylum, and you didn't talk about a wall or security there. But you've talked about that before we need border security. Of course, we do. I believe I happen to believe that there are more cost effective ways to do that than simply building. A let's go to the Tonys argues against border security members of your own party, specifically Baidoa Rourke who said not only do we not need to build an additional war. We should take down the walls. We already have. And you have the mayor of Rochester, New York, San hey, immigrants and to our community if he wants to send them here. We'll take them. You have the to'real on the Chicago Sun-Times saying the same thing and the newly elected mayor of Chicago Laurie white foot says we welcome them. No, don't get me wrong. What I'm saying is I don't think that we should take the bait every time the president puts out a provocative tweet. But I think we need to do is make sure that we are being very clear speaking our values, we are a city that is a sanctuary city. We have immigrants from all over the world who call Chicago their home. They'll continue to do that. And we're gonna continue to make sure that this is truly a welcoming Colm. Unity for those immigrants. We want them. So what's the problem to come to the city, Chicago? I also as a lawyer and former federal prosecutor wanna make sure that we are doing everything that follows the law and the people's rights are respected. So you want legal aliens brought to Chicago is long as it's done by the rule of law, and it long as people's rights are respected from that. You'll take them right? Immigrants particularly asylum-seekers have a right to do process. They have a white to constitutional process that is consistent with the rule of law. We're going to continue to insist that law befallen former ice director he's been with ice into beginning of the agency's inception in two thousand three which means he served under both Trump and Obama says the reason illegals come to this country because of sanctuary cities.

This is going to escalate quickly as Ron burgundy would say so come of a Harris sent an Email blast out to all of her fans yesterday and the subject line was Baidoa Rourke. This is the first line of the Kamala Harris Email blast quote. We're facing something unprecedented. A record number of Democrats, including a record number of women and people of color are running for president. And then she goes on to ask for money for her conce. So she's fundraising off of white, man. Beta she's just pointing out the fact that yeah, I'm a I'm a woman of color, and I'm a woman, and I'm here. I'm I I don't see how any democrat differentiates themselves with anybody else, except all the identity politics because they. All believe the same crazy nonsense. But that's the only way they're going to separate themselves from each other is identity. It feels like the only two adults running for the presidency on the left right now.

But I want you to listen to Pelosi's answer here because she doesn't even know what it's called at the very end of this clip.

And I've heard from a lot of folks in El Paso, including the mayor that are not really happy about it. They don't totally agree with the president's assessment. No. Yeah. You know, you take that as a compliment from the president that you have a safe community would be welcome. But it's because he says that the reason let's say that there is if you seven mile fence that separates El Paso from nearby Juarez Mexico.

"So beta Iraq talking with the Washington Post and even the Washington Post which desperately wants to like him. They desperately want to believe in Baidoa Rourke. Even the Washington Post is like this got no anything doesn't know things got no solutions. I love this. They say it's an approach is approach where he doesn't get answers that puts off specifics that might to find him or narrow his appeal in a presidential race. But a Rourke says she's being open minded as he wishes more politicians would be. And here's what he says. That's a problem when you're like, it'll be a wall. It'll be this or we can only do it with this is that the genius is we can nonviolently resolve our differences, though, I won't get my perfect version or I working with you. We'll get something better than what we have today is rare that someone's ever been able to impose their will unilaterally in this country. We don't want that. So they're they're like a dude we just ask you like what we should do about. Overstays, and he's like nonviolence. And the Washington Post interview or is kind of looking around awkwardly like this is an outtake from arrested development and then like vote for me. So I can say stuff like that. Where we get together we make solutions what are the solutions? I don't know. That's the beauty of it. He insists that once Americans are informed about quote, the facts in the story and the information and the opportunity they will come to the right conclusions about what to do about an issue that has divided the country for decades. He goes I trust the wisdom of PayPal. And I'm confident especially after having traveled Texas for two years. People are good fundamentally, and if given the choice to do the right thing, they will do the good thing. They'll do it. And the interview. Sir. This is a Wendy's. Some solutions. Like how about like an idea like one, I'm not asking for like, a bevy of ideas. I'm not asking for mitt Romney's fifty nine point tax plan. I'm just asking for like idea. Like one thing. You would do is like no I trust Americans to do what to vote for you. You're supposed to offer them a choice. A he's following the Obama. I'm a blank slate upon which the American people will project all their hopes and dreams routine. Obama said that back in two thousand eight it worked for him. The nice thing for Democrats is the nobody ever asked them for specifics in the media. Bitter Aurora can get away with saying dumb stuff. Like this imagine if Ted Cruz had said this in the two thousand sixteen primaries imagine if had said, I don't know the answers, dude. Yeah. I'm sure the media gone for that. Okay. In just a second.

"So that seems to be I guess positive in some ways that they're going to strike a deal because there is a window of opportunity to strike a deal before the US economy weakens further and China comes out of its slump later in the year. This is according to a global economists. So US officials see signs of progress in trade negotiations ahead of formal talks next week and see a weaker Chinese economy as a catalyst for it to join talks look at that wasn't as bad as it could be now. Because of course, we were all very worried about a trade war with China as we saw when W Bush tried to do tariffs. He wanted to do it for like two years. And I think he lasted three or four months before. He's like, oh, this is a horrible idea. Yeah. So that's interesting. All right back to America. Let's talk a little bit more about the primary season. Is upon us. It's it's exciting stuff as we said earlier. That's my seventh time sane. It is upon us. Elizabeth Warren is thrown her hat into the ring who's next who has we've got what till June until the debates begin first abate will be in June that they're going to have a debate every month after that. So it's gonna be a crowded field in this point. There are some people there's up to forty seven names. I have heard forty seventy won't be forty-seven many names or possible just off the top of my head. Cory Booker, Kamala. Harris, Sharon Brown, obviously, Bernie Sanders. Joe Biden, Baidoa Rourke Elizabeth Warren who's already in Tammy Duckworth. Tammy Duckworth is going to be perhaps in the the list just goes on and on and little Tim canes gonna come back. Maybe a Terry McAuliffe might also come back Martin O'Malley, maybe Martin O'Malley he can sing his way through the primaries. Once again that would be exciting. So the names just continue on there's another dude. John hickenlooper. Michael bloomberg. Bloomberg might be in there. I think Bloomberg is a definite. I think Bloomberg's definitely coming on. And I think that's a great group of people because you have a real diverse group of political ideologies there, you have someone like a Michael Bloomberg. Who is obviously more of a financial man, obviously, a billionaire someone who's going to be slightly more lax on Wall Street who understands the economy in a different way, then someone like Sharad Brown or a or an Elizabeth Warren. So have that debate in the public forum on stage through the media, and let's see where the Democratic Party wants to go for two thousand twenty. But the reason why I giggled a little bit was because I looked up possible. Twenty twenty democratic candidates, and I found an article from September eighth 2017 top fifteen a possible twenty twenty democratic nominees ranked number fifteen Mark Zuckerberg. Oh, great. That's who we want. Don't think Mark zuckerberg's gonna make. Hin you a magin the nightmare that that would be. You haven't seen Mark Zuckerberg rollout? Facebook live. I don't know.

"Number of successful female candidate led the way to victory, but in a news conference the morning after the election. President Trump also claimed victory Republican party defied history to expand our Senate majority well significantly beating expectations in the house. Laming Republicans who didn't embrace him for their losses Mia. Love gave me no love and she lost to bed. Sorry about that. And now with Republicans maintaining control of the Senate and Democrats taking control of the house in two thousand nineteen President Trump's relationship with congress will become that much more difficult. Lana Zak ABC news capitol to continue our coverage of the midterm elections on a national scale wanna bring in WSB political analyst Bill crane, Eric Erickson from Atlanta's evening news. Jamie Dupree, our Washington bureau chief and Jamie through two point. Oh here. Republicans have claimed a draw in the midterms with their games in the Senate despite forty pickups by the Democrats in the house, two months later, looking back at it who got the better end of the midterms in a sense, you could call it a draw in the midterm elections. But losing control of the US house is a very big deal for the Republicans. And a big setback for president. Trump still got is offset a little by the expanded majority in the US Senate has the GOP will have a little more wiggle room with a fifty three to forty seven advantage in the Senate who gets the best of this deal is a good question. I would have to say it's the Democrats in the house because they will have the ability now to do direct oversight of the president and the executive branch the edge for the president will be more room for hair in the Senate on his nominee. Nations, but you cannot end should not downplay the loss of control of the US house. I'm not sure the president is really ready for what that will mean. In terms of oversight of the White House and the Russia investigation so Bill and Eric disqualifies a Blue Wave or a blue. Blue tide that add quickly. Yes. There was a net pickup in the house, but less than the loss. Barack Obama suffered in two thousand ten less than George W Bush's loss in two thousand and six and you can't underestimate the Senate pickups because not only do we have more Republicans up in the two thousand twenty cycle. But the possible biggest legacy of the Trump administration will beat the remake of the federal judiciary and appointments, the US supreme court, and that is only strengthened by the pickups. They had on the Senate side. Although the Senate is already in some respects starting to play some distance between itself and certain members in the White House. I do think when you get into the fundamental dynamics of the house level, you see shifts in the Texas suburbs. That's giving some Republicans balls here Georgia's, well, it's going to be problematic. I think for Republicans headed into twenty twenty all that said, though, the democratic wave was not a huge as some people were originally predicting it to be in the house representatives. But there's going to be dynamic change with the president. It does however give the president one can. Campaign advantage headed it's twenty twenty. And that is he now has someone to run against a heavy Nancy Pelosi. Jamie. How will history remember the hundred and fifteenth congress, obviously Republicans were not able to do anything about repealing and replacing the Obama health law, and they were not able to get something done on immigration either. But I would not want to say that makes their last two years of failure under President Trump Republicans did get their big tax cut through though, I'm not sure it has had the intended economic impact that the GOP predicted and certainly Republicans have been successful in rolling back regulations both at the congressional and executive level. If there's an area where I think the GOP certainly failed. It would be an oversight of the Trump administration. There were so many questionable stories involving cabinet secretaries that deserve basic congressional oversight ended did not happen. And in January that is certainly going to change Eric. So how do you feel with Republicans? They had the whole deck in their favor. How do they do with it? I think they didn't. Okay. I think they probably could have emboldened to their base a little more. Have they been more aggressive on ObamaCare in in gotten it through? But I've got to agree with Jamie that I have had a number of Republicans till they wished Republicans in the house and Senate had had more oversight over some of these cabinet secretaries because they thought that these are making the president, look bad, and the Democrats had a clear and compelling argument for people around the nation that no one was holding the president and his cabinet accountable. That gave them an argument they otherwise wouldn't have had. And now the Republicans are going to get it in spades. From the Democrats with the oversight hearings on the Trump administration. Now, we shift to January Democrats have the house did we get a peek from what we saw earlier this month with that a little made for TV show between Trump Pelosi and Schumer on how things are going to go or is that just a little bit of bluster. I think the president fighter and he's made clear some things he really wants like the wall. And I believe you'll get them. Ultimately for something like Dhaka, they'll be some poor trading. It won't happen in front of television cameras. But I think the president was setting the tone, and I think he's wanted a villain from central casting. It's a lot better for the base. If you're running against someone like Nancy Pelosi every day, then attacking your own party house speaker one of the issues we're going to have in the Senate. There is some loss of love between the president in certain Senate Republicans, and though they certainly increased their gains there, you you've got twenty twenty you've got some of these senators newly reelected who don't have to worry about things for six more years. And we may see a little more aggressiveness to not quite lineup with Donald Trump the way some of them have in the last two years, the president needs a new attorney general the president is probably going to have two or three more cabinet secretaries either switch positions or believing you need Senate confirmation for that. He needs people that have relationships with house, even if they don't come from the house to engage their the challenges for this president to move his agenda are much greater than Bill Clinton and his second term when he was working with divided government and house speaker, Newt Gingrich at that time, and they were able to get together on things like welfare reform, which became more fair and. Economic movements that caused that portion of the nineties to be among the most productive the United States until now in terms of employment. We don't see the kind of compromiser in President Trump, but I wouldn't have given him credit on the way he runs the tariffs on the trade deals to get a new North American Free trade agreement or is it's actually called the US C AMC, Jamie. The question of what gets done in the next two years is an interesting one because it would be easy to just wave off the chance of any deal making as the two parties angle for advantage going into the twenty twenty election that we have seen divided government work at times in the past. In one never knows what might happen in the months ahead with the Russia investigation as well as for the Russia probe and the ties to the White House in Trump campaign. I really do want to make clear that you should not underestimate the seriousness of this situation for the president. This is an extremely serious investigation, which is slowly peeling away a number of the denials made in the past by the president and his allies air because that kind of the wild card. All of this is the probe. Yes. Where it goes. I I do not think they're stopping Cohen allegations that there seems to be more there, and the Democrats will certainly be running with it in the house. I would say the odds of of an impeachment vote on the house being successful or over fifty percent. But we're goes to the Senate. I don't know the president really needs to make sure he's building relationships with Republicans of the Senate Jamie so era just brought up. The I word if there's no smoking gun from the Muller investigation one of the chances impeachment happens Democrats should not focus on impeachment because that is such a drastic measure that if impeachment becomes necessary that will be evident to almost everyone involved. What the Democrats probably should do is just focus on oversight of the Trump administration. The excessive spending inhabits of cabinet secretaries, the many questions related to the president and the Russia investigation and more. I really think it's a mistake for either party to go easy on their parties. President and now we will see a much different situation. Starting on January third over the next two years if you had to guess what memorable piece of legislation gets passed. Or is there? Anything the farm Bill a big deal for a whole lot of people particularly in states like Georgia where agribusinesses large, and though we don't hear about deficits much anymore. We really need to get spending under control, and that's containing the growth of entitlements, which you won't see under Democrats, but it may be one of those horses that the president trades to get an infrastructure Bill funded or to get meaningful immigration reform. Yeah. The spending issue is going to be huge in their number of Republicans, particularly the freedom caucus members who have been voting for the president these first two years of his term. We're Nelson Lee saying, you know, what it's time that we reign in federal spending that they don't wanna do tax increases. They certainly want to roll back the leviathan whether or not they can't or not who knows the interesting thing is being in the minority. Now, the freedom caucus doesn't really have a lot of leverage like they did in the majority, except when you consider Republicans to hold the Senate in the freedom caucus can. A thorn in the side of Republicans in the house trying to cut deals with the Democrats this time next year, the three of us are going to gather again and start looking at the field of candidates for president just for fun right now who will Donald Trump be worrying about the most three hundred sixty five days from now Baidoa Rourke? Bob corker. I think you'll see someone like corker give him a run for his money in in New Hampshire. But yes on the democratic side, but or work, I don't think worker can win the Republican nomination. I certainly think you can shake things up for the president art. So that's where we believe it after a historic midterm election. Bill, Eric thank you for your coverage now and going forward and happy new year happy new year. This is two thousand eighteen on WSB. I'm Jay black, and I got sick. And if you didn't know somebody who did and you managed to walk through a minefield during a historic flu season, the entire country has been experiencing intense flew nine hundred thousand people hospitalized nationwide eighty thousand deaths one hundred and eighty of them children making this flu. The worst. Forty years WSB health reporter Sabrina Kupa joins me now and Sabrina. No, you spend a lot of time at the CDC here in Atlanta. Why was this flu so bad? Yeah. You know, it was an H three in two year, which tends to impact children and elderly more severely. And of course, you know, the vaccine was less optimal matched than they had hoped for. So that was the reason that it we saw so many people getting sick vaccine batting average about forty percents doesn't sound great. How do doctors feel about their chances against the flu this year? Well, it's too early to tell us what they always say. It's too early to know how effective the vaccine is going to be. But early indications at this point are that the strains that are circulating are a good match for what's in the vaccine. And remember, even if it isn't a great match. It does offer some protection is that counter. What it boils down to that? If you don't have a good flu vaccine, you're going to have a bad flu season thirty s kind of that's an easy. Good way to answer it. But yes, if there's not a good match, and which strained is circulating has a lot to do with it as well. One of the other items of popped up on your radar late this year something. I was not aware of this polio, like illness AFL. Yeah. Yeah. That's acute flaccid mile litis. You know, it impacts the children, it's still rare. And that's the main thing, but it's a mystery. They don't really know what causes it or why some children become paralyzed and others. Don't it starts out like a common coal respiratory problems. And then a week later some children suffer paralysis, but there has been some hope for those children. Yes, yes, I talked to a doctor who's trying all it basically anything they can to help these children. They are having some success. And of course, the CDC has a panel of experts looking into it, and they're pretty good. I think they're gonna probably find out what's causing it. And hopefully, we can stop it. But again, it is still very rare. He spent a lot of time with your sources at the CDC here in Atlanta. What is the main thing that you'll be watching four hundred feet the opioid epidemic. Still going to be on the radar for sure. And in October, the president signed a bipartisan Bill aimed at tackling that trying to rein in over prescriptions. And. Opioid trafficking. So Sabrina we'll be checking back with you to see how that goes until then having new your thank you happy new year on the way, it's starting to become an annual tradition park. Howard rip off of the year is a major data breach. Or no matter how you. Huge. How you can protect yourself coming up. This is two thousand eighteen on WSB.
