Pelosi calls for '9/11-type' commission on Capitol attack

Imagine a life without Google
"Up one day and google. All of google is gone. G mail search. Google drive youtube google home. Google maps gone in australia. That world without google might not be that far off lawmakers. There are pushing for some regulations on the silicon valley giant and in response. Google has threatened to turn off its services in the entire country. Joining me discuss recode reporter and host of the new season of podcasts. You listen to called land of giants and it shrink affari history. Hey tiny so. The new season drops today. Congratulations everyone should listen to it right now. or after. this is over In this season you chronicle google's rise from tech startup to this global powerhouse that is now fighting with australian government walking. You tell us about australia. Tell me what's happening there with regulators and how this might play out. Yes so it's a real standoff between australian government and google and basically what the government wants is for google to pay publishers. More like newspapers magazines for new snippets. That show up. Google search but also and probably even more critically for google. They want google to open up their secret algorithms around how they rank results in search and notify any kind of news organization if they end up changing that algorithm and that is something that will really close chest and does not want to share and in land of the giants. We actually went into the origins of google's first revolutionary algorithm called page rank and You know why was it so important and something that you would never want to give away if you're google because that's exactly what makes you google. What would that mean to pull out of the country. Does that mean if someone in australia goes to. Google dot com. They don't get anything. Possibly it could mean that you cannot do a google search. You cannot Open g mail. I think that The full scope of it hasn't really been discussed because at this point they're negotiating right. It's a negotiation and google has said this is a last resort option. They would not wanna poll google's products. But who knows it could be something in between they could just block news articles from showing up so you could still find your local pizza hut. But you couldn't find an article about world politics. Yeah i mean it feels like this Matters to non. Australians which i assume is most of our listeners. apologies to those over there but for most listeners this is about one country. And you know they're fighting some tech giant. Whatever like. Tell me why i should care. The big deal is that this is kind of a template for how governments are going to deal with google in the future right because google and itself has become so powerful that it's almost like its own nation state and you know if a stray elia really wins in the standoff. It'll be a flex of power and so it could be something that we see happen. Not just a miss really about in england in the uk who knows maybe even in the us one day and it's a real test of who's gonna win and zooming out from this right. This is a conversation that's happening. Not just not just the united states but everywhere right about is google chew powerful. That's the theme. You look at during land of the giants. Tell me about how. Google might fair under a democratic administration that frankly like the republican administration that preceded. It is preparing serious. Antitrust action against the titans. That's rates for google right now. It is a very important critical and nerve wracking time. Because they're facing this historic lawsuit. The us government under president trump's administration has sued them. And said you know cues them being a monopoly and now this new administration under biden is inheriting that case and everyone is looking to see who is biden's new attorney general. Who is he going to pick to lead up. This google case is going to be even harder on google. Is he going to expand the scope of the case. How much attention is he going to give it. And we don't really know yet but we do know that there are really strong currents Within the democratic party pushing to be aggressive in breaking up google's power and that comes from people like elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. Who have campaigned around this idea and have a a strong progressive flank of supporters in the party so You know no one knows for sure. But let's say we do know that biden is feeling the pressure to take on big tech and to not be afraid to have his administration go after google and other big tech companies like amazon and facebook. So google is so big at this point that when we talk about antitrust action. We probably aren't really thinking big enough. Frankly i mean. Tell me if google were in australia or you know. Be broken up in the united states. Can you just give me like a sense of the vastness of google empire like. What are we taking for granted in this conversation. I think we take for granted a lot because we just use it every day. It's the calm this integral part of our lives. If google's products were to be pulled from the internet. I basically personally wouldn't probably be able to do my job or even get around with google maps or something like that right and google offers most of these products largely for free so to give google credit. You know they've made these tools. That are so incredibly helpful on the other hand. Are we to reliant on them should there be more competitors in the space. Those are the kinds of questions that politicians are asking right now.

More sports stadiums to be used for COVID-19 vaccinations
"Stadiums are gearing up to be used as coronaviruses vaccination sites. CBS is we did Jang President Biden took a virtual tour of the Arizona Cardinal Stadium. So come on in where FEMA helped open at 24 7 covert vaccination site. The president's relief package calls for money to set up more sites on a $15 an hour minimum wage, though he admitted the chances of that are slim that was met with disappointment by Progressive Senator Bernie Sanders. Democrats also added a measure to expand the child tax credit from the current $2000 per child tow up to $3600 something he certainly would support. And we've just
Democrats to Unveil Up to $3,600 Child Tax Credit as Part of Stimulus Bill
"House committees are now hammering out the details of the nearly $2 Trillion Coburn relief package. Put forward by President Biden. Children are at the center of one of these pieces of the package. And with more on that I'm joined by ABC s Elizabeth Scholesy in Washington. Elizabeth Great to have you with us. As usual. This is expected to be direct cash payments to American families with kids. Hey, yeah, That's right. So great to be with you. This is a new proposals that we put forward today by Democrats in the House Ways and Means Committee, essentially calling for an expansion of the child tax credit, So the breaks out is essentially Asking for $3600 per child under the age of six and $3000 per child between the ages of six and 17 and the Democrats say this is holding true to Biden's promise to expand this chap this child tax credit. And to help alleviate poverty. No, there is research showing that this would help cut child poverty and half That's according to a Columbia University study, and this is part of a broader effort as we know of that nearly $2 trillion covert relief package, but certainly a Democratic priority here that have gotten some Republicans support. We saw similar opportunities will put forward by Senator Mitt Romney last week. So this is an interesting way to get more cash to families, especially lower income families and CBS interview yesterday, the president indicated he He doesn't really want to come off that 1.9 trillion mark, but is willing to negotiate with regard to income eligibility. That's exactly right. Joe Biden is holding true to the demand for $1400 stimulus checks. He says he will not go up go below that dollar amount, but he is willing to negotiate on who gets those checks. Currently, the proposal says, If you get more if you earn more than $75,000, you would start phasing out and you would not qualify their own individual That would be $150,000 per couple. So I didn't sound out open to maybe having that income threshold deal little bit lower. Notably those. Some Democrats are pushing back on that idea. We did hear from Senator Bernie Sanders and said anyone who got a stimulus check under President Trump. Should also get a check under President
Biden Wants Congress To Pass COVID Relief Before Mid-March
"Wasn't it? Biden is pushing for Congress to pass his coronavirus relief package and hopes lawmakers can have it on his desk before mid March.

The bill will provide relief to small businesses and the hospitality industry, which have both been hit hard by the pandemic.
VP Harris casts tie-breaker vote in Senate progressing stimulus bill
"The Senate passed a budget resolution after a 15 hour marathon session known as a vote a Rama. It ended with Vice President Kamala Harris, casting her first tie breaking vote of the Biden administration. Passing the budget measures sets the stage for Democrats to move forward with Biden's coronavirus relief plan without Republican support. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now and Kelsey Walk us through what happened last night in the Senate and into the early morning. So this whole process known as a vote A Rama is a normal part of getting a budget passed and the very first step in using the procedural tool that Democrats want to use to pass the coronavirus aid is passing a budget. Down that also involves up just an endless string of amendments. Basically, any senator can offer basically on the amendment as often as they want and as long as they want until they get tired. The thing about it, though, is most of the amendments that get past are nonbinding, meaning that they end up having almost no no real impact on whatever legislation is to come. So we went through this long ritual, this long process to set up what will be now the committee work. So all of the committees that are named in this budget resolution will start to get to work on writing an actual covert, really fill a thing that could be enacted into law. And speaking of those amendments, Republicans and even some Democrats have suggested limiting Biden's proposed $1400 direct checks to a smaller group of people. Are there any details yet? About who could be excluded from that relief and what the income threshold might be. We don't really know for sure yet, because, like I said the committee's haven't actually started doing their work. What we do know is that there is some appetite, including among Democrats to make sure that those checks are targeted more. There have been some arguments that people who are making more than is may be necessary to To need an additional influx of cash. But those people have been receiving tax and there's an effort to kind of parrot down to make sure that as Republicans say it is targeted relief Now there is a debate about who really qualifies as being too high of an income to require such stimulus on I think we're going to be seeing that play out over the next several weeks. And I think the fact that there was an amendment on this issue that it got debate and that you know, it's indicates that this is something that both sides really care about, which means that it is most likely to have a really serious conversation that could drag out for at least the duration of the time that this isn't committees. I see. I see. And did we learn anything more during this process last night about the fate of a plan to raise the federal minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour. We do know that this is another place where there is, You know some disagreement among Democrats about the fate of the $15 minimum, which some Democrats say that $15 is just not What it should be across the country. They say that maybe in some cities in jurisdictions $15 is a reasonable minimum wage. But they say that other places in the country that doesn't need to be quite that high. Now President Biden has said that it needs to be part of the package. Bernie Sanders, the Budget committee chairman, says that that needs to be part of the package, so this could be one of those issues. That really drags Congress into a fight we've seen with budget reconciliations process that they're using that little fights over things that are important policies to some members can drag down entire bills, and this is a policy that is very important to a lot of people. So it could be one of those issues that we see people fighting about for the next several weeks. Kelsey. I spoke with Senator Tim Kaine earlier this week. And he tried to make the point that this budget reconciliation process could still be bipartisan. Even though a final bill likely isn't going to require any Republican support based on what you saw last night. Is that true? Are Republicans having much of a say in this process? That is technically true. There have been bipartisan reconciliation bills in the past, but you know in this situation Republicans air starting out at about $600 billion, and Democrats are talking about $1.9 trillion. Bridging that gap and finding bipartisanship on such a big divide would be very difficult to come by. NPR's Kelsey Snell. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me.

"Who and what do you think as president? He would make his first act his first one hundred days his first year. What's let's Bernie GonNa dive into? I think healthcare. He's very passionate about healthcare. He's passionate about his medicare for all crusade the idea that the United States of America should join every other major. Get your country on earth in guaranteeing healthcare to every man woman and child this is not a radical idea in fact poll after poll shows a majority of the American people support. That idea people want to know. I think it's obvious that we're not gonNA pass a bill. That's expensive is that as expensive as Bernie's Medicare for all. Yeah as as expensive as as his proposal. I think the real view from his team is that you need someone who is committed to fighting against the special interests that block this kind of action. That anything you do right whether it's the modest prescription drug pricing reform. That House Democrats are trying to do whether whether it's the bipartisan reform. On surprise billing that is kicking around the Senate. All of these things get blocked by the exact same nexus of interest groups who lead the opposition to Medicare for all. So you may as well just see what you can get out of an actual legislative process. But I think they think you will get the most by naming the bad guys and and taking them on so Bernie of course wrote the Danville. We've heard it a million times at this point but he isn't the only person supporting the damn bill anymore. So why Bernie the over someone say like Elizabeth. Warren who at least at some point has said that she's on board with a similar kind of plan. So I agree I mean I I actually think in terms of legislative outputs. You're not I'm not GONNA see a huge difference between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren or even Bernie Sanders and budejovice. Amy Klobuchar or Biden because the way legislation works is it depends on Congress right if you really. Your primary consideration is what bills are gonNA pass like. You should focus on the Senate race in Maine Senate race in Arizona Senate race in Colorado Colorado. That's what's going to determine it not the choice of president but the most far out there Bernie Sanders. Proposals are not going to become law. No matter what happens you're gonNA GONNA get the same kind of incremental change however you want but if you want to sort of unified Democratic Party taking the fight to trump taking the fight to republicans and selling the based on the need for compromise. There's nobody better than sanders to Bernie never sells it that way. Do you think he believes that. Do you think he believes that. Once he gets into office office he will be the People's champion and thus temper his ambitions. I think that Bernie understands that. It is hard to pass bills hills and that there's not going to be like a parting of the clouds and all obstacles vanish. But I think he also rightly thinks that some of the people who preach pragmatism mm-hmm are in fact being influenced by money and campaign contributions and lobbying and their desires and that people look and they say why have Democrats been talking. Talk about lowering prescription drug costs for twenty years right. How is it that that never gets done? And it's not because nobody knows that you may have to trim your sails a little. Our are make deals very popular ideas. Wind up not happening up. Because of the influence of money in politics right and it's not that a sanders presidency. NC eliminates all of those obstacles that means that you will have a president who is making bargains literally because vote counts not because of the impact of of money so if there is a president sanders if he does need to compromise his agenda. What are those compromises actually look like you think I think some form of a public option of opening up of Medicare he actually cosponsored a public option? Bill back in the two thousand sixteen cycle before raising his aspirations. And then things on prescription drug costs. That's that's an issue that he has been a champion of forever and that mainstream Democrats are increasingly comfortable with but they've never quite sealed. The deal on cutting prescription drug costs. I think you've sanders is in the White House. This guy's been fighting Pharma For decades and he is going to tell everyone like we are going to get this done last style and and they really will. It's funny though because what you're talking about like a public option for example is essentially like the compromise position that bided at closure arguing for against Bernie's Medicare for all but this is the perversity of American politics. Right is Barack Obama runs and wins on public option platform. Yeah so you get the with no oh public option you run and win on a Medicare for all platform. You might get a public option. If you're lucky right. The president always gets less than what he ran on right. Because of the dynamics in Congress I wonder you know you talk about Bernie to essentially rallying this coalition of supporters from the left but also the center center. You've got people like James Carville talking to our colleague Sean. Noling last week about how. He's scared to death about sanders ability to beat trump too to unify the left as well as centrists. Tell me about the argument. That Bernie could actually do that. How do you see it happening so look? We can look at People's electoral track track records right. Some politicians do better than average in their home state and some do worse and it is a hundred percent true. The politicians who do better than average are typically Lee moderates Joe Mansion is one of the great over performers in the US Senate but Bernie Sanders is also and overperform. You look at any year that he was on the ballot and there was also presidential election. Nineteen Ninety to nineteen ninety-six. Two thousand. It's happened over and over again and he runs ahead of the Democratic ticket right. It's not like every leftist. Does that That that's untrue at all but Bernie Sanders does. He is a very effective politician. He is an effective campaigner. And you don't he. Does it a few different ways. One is his personal reputation for integrity. The other is this whole weird thing where he's not really a Democrat. It seems to help him get the votes of people who go. For third parties that there was a lot of Perot Sanders Crossover votes. There was a lot of Stein Sanders crossover votes but even Johnson Sanders Crossover. It's the people who are suspicious of party politics and business as usual sanders seems like a free thinking person a person of integrity somebody who they can trust. It's hard hard to scale that up from Vermont to nationwide but it should give people like Carville people who worry about electability some sense of reassurance that like this is a guy who has run and wine and and done very very well in those elections I mean Vermont is obviously not a swing state. But he's doing better than Barack Obama better than Hillary Clinton better than Bill Clinton in his home state and as we move in our heads to the hypothetical of Bernie actually running against president trump. I wonder how does Bernie Fair against someone who wants to paint him and his his friends. AFC as just socialists and scare people into winning votes if it was me if you could go back in time and have Bernie Sanders. There's not call himself a socialist. I would definitely take that people who think that's a handicap. They are correct Socialism is a label at polls very poorly. But he's been calling himself a socialist for a long time. He's been making it work. And the other advantages. Republicans have been calling every Democrat. They run against a socialist for a long time and to an extent. You Know L. Dixon political party to Cry Wolf on this over there. It seems as though far left. Socialist ideology is increasingly becoming mainstream Democratic Party doctrine. This socialism has never worked if they're so interested in it. Why don't they go to Caracas? Or what I wanted to go someplace where they've tried it a vote for any Democrat in twenty eight twenty and a vote for any Democrat. Tomorrow and North Carolina is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American American dream. Trump got forty six percent of the vote back in two thousand sixteen and it's not just that he lost the popular vote. He was below fifty percent in Florida Arizona Zone and North Carolina. He's below fifty as to the question is not so much. How do you appeal to swing voters who are due? I like trump to a not like trump. But it's how how do you get all of the anti-trump voters together and I think sanders is uniquely. Well positioned to bring those third party voters and to get them to vote Democrat. I think that's the strongest electability argument for him. I went walking that ribbon of highway. I saw me endless skyway. Never forget the Bernie Sanders record the polk album in the eighties Bali. I don't know if Matthew yglesias has recorded any folk albums yet but he hosts the weeds.

Your central exit went when you said exhorted Exxon excellent exciting team hundred you too. I mean so me amount. Uh on a talent show called pop idol sixteen years ago so we were seeing is originally But we we got great bungle became friends and we put together as a jewel after it released a couple of singles but we fell into present in by accident and have never looked back story. A when was that true talents. He says three three. Yeah so things are really when you you think of your journey from two thousand and three for all the all the things you accomplish and you got all insisting that you want to be part of my podcast. It's the they see this is it. Would it go wrong now. It'll boils down to this man. I'm telling you okay. Well listen. I'm very thrilled to me. Thanks for a moment.

I wish you all that you do. Thank you thank you for your time. Wonderful Salmon mark the new presenters of the new series of cracker. Jack and I encourage anyone who hasn't seen the new series finding on the on the on the and I play it'll be streamed is on. CBC and of course there is no Friday. It's five to five it's crackerjack anymore because everyone's streaming and listening different. I'm watching a different times on the of course I mean cracker Jack. Was it just a great show but aw kind of like a product of very different time in the sense that when the world stopped a Friday afternoon and everyone finish work can have family sat down together. Gather with one screen in the house and enjoyed that so it was. It became very traditional. And how you know that was the big kind of like cabaret family. Entertainment payment sort of show that. How do you think crackerjack returning will fare in an inner in an age that so different I think come I think crackdown do really well from what I've seen the opening episode because it was out and out variety the production values were very very high? And I think when I when I do pantomime I worked two families. People want spectacle people can see on the screen almost anything whereas whereas in terms of watching crackerjack on the screen. I think that'd be mightily impressed in the opening episode of which we were part there was a fire. Iraq like a Circus Act. The went truly quist. There were sketches. The it was right across the board it was out out variety and I think there's a generation honoration of people that haven't been served. Well then what television house to offer which is out and out variety. They've been starved. Thyolo bear the hasn't been scratched or they just you start another. They've got the edge. And I think I think crackerjack will will fill that void so you think they would just punch through anyway. It's it's entertainment. It's great great entertainment and I think I think families will love grindstone will always find a home. So what if you got next one of the great things about my business as the fact that when you meet somebody that you've you I met thirty forty years ago and you haven't seen the for ten years it's inches if it was a week ago.

"Jump in well let's even put some context on work in poverty forty five percent of homeless individuals work so you've gotta get what everybody actually i'm forty four percent of homeless individuals work but obviously don't earn enough to get themselves out of their situation so that they can have decent housing forty percent of workers are in contingent insecure jobs as as defined by the general accounting office forty four percent of workers earn below fifteen dollars an hour so that's the context in which we're in but i'm going to shift gears a little bit and say that if we really talking about middle class economic security economic security we need to talk about wealth and if we look at well we know wealth is both the beginning in the end of economic insecurity or security wealth gives you it's not just wealth as an outcome it's wealth can do for your life we've talked about political power if you got wealth you can get political power if you're faced with an expensive legal system wealth will allow you to address that condition if you have medical bills wealth allows you to address your your condition if you wanna send your child to leat private school or university those that have wealth can do so we often think about wealth in terms of what what the end is but really the real power of wealth is what it can do for people it gives you choice it gives you freedom it gives you agency now let's think about wealth is in terms of numbers senator sanders pointed out the beginning of when we started that the top ten percent of households might be slightly different that key gave he gave the top one percent the top ten percent of households have over seventy five percent of the nation's wealth the bottom fifty percent of households have about one percent of the nation's wealth so however unequal we are in terms of wealth race becomes a bigger predictor of somebody's wealth positioned in class itself the typical black household has about ten cents on the dollar the typical white household and that including home equity we talk about the middle class there virtually has never been a substantial middle black middle class if we're defining.
