Security cannot be overstated. And i promise you this is something that republicans and democrats can work together on. All right senator. Bill cassidy republican from louisiana cruciate. You come on sharing your perspective with a sir thank you. Thank you and joining me. Now is governor larry maryland. He's a republican and democratic state. Who was taken on a leadership role in the republican party and may end up running for president. Twenty twenty four governor hogan It's a pleasure to have you. Welcome back to meet the press. Good morning so. I wanna start with this With which is the lindsey graham analysis as as liz. Cheney thinks the party can't grow with donald trump. And obviously lindsey. Graham believes the party can't grow without donald trump. What say you governor hogan. I think we've got to get back to winning elections again and We we have to be able to have a republican party. That appeals to a broader group of people. We have to get back to Having a bigger tent as reagan talked-about and not continuing to Look we had the worst four years. We've we've had ever in the republican party lee losing the white house. The the house of representatives and the senate and successful politics is about addition and multiplication. Not subtraction and division. Can you explain why the party doesn't seem to hold donald trump responsible responsible this when i say the party. Most of the elected leadership. You're an exception at the end. Jr apparatus but most of the leadership doesn't seem to pin this on him. I you know again. You sort of the record is the record. Why do you think they don't want to pin it on him. I think they're concerned about retaliation from the president They're they're concerned about You know being attacked within the party and and you know it just bothers me that you have to swear fealty to The dear leader or you get kicked out of the party. It just doesn't make any sense. Well it to me the most damning part of this liz. Cheney voted for president trump's single singular legislative achievement and what many republicans tell me is very important to protecting the person that they're replacing voted against it. I mean it is the party now. What you just said if you're not with trump. You're not a republican. Well it's sort of a circular firing squad where we're just attacking members of our own party instead of focusing on solving problems or standing up and having an argument Th that We can debate the democrats on some of the things that the biden administration and pushing through. What do you. How do you talk to trump voters you have. There's certainly some places that president trump did well in western maryland some places along the eastern shore. you're in a blue states. You have a little bit of an easier time. Straddling the the wings of the party. But how do you have a conversation with a trump supporter that says. Hey how come. You haven't investigated voter fraud governor hogan just try to be honest with them and you know in my state. Iran forty five points ahead of the president. But i i'm ahead of him among republicans among conservatives and among democrats and independents and i think most people want really is just people to tell them the truth and we can disagree on what happened in the election but Voters still support me in spite of the fact that i don't happen. This support conspiracy theories one of the issues is the information ecosystem and as you know it. There is a reward. There there is a sort of a reward system for own the lead on the libs political theatrics. And if you somehow help. Pass a bipartisan bill. You're punished that seems. I mean how you want to run for president. How you run in an environment. Where most of the voters. You're going to be appealing to our hearing this bizarre set of fictional ideas. I i think that most voters in both parties are kind of fed up with the crazy things that are coming out of both parties. And they they really wanna get elected officials. That are willing to work together. That are willing to get things done and come up with bipartisan. Common sense solutions. And i've proven that In two elections in a row by winning overwhelmingly with republicans democrats and independents. Because it's a p p people are just fed up with the politics. We have in washington today. Does this look this decision by the house. Republicans townhouse liz. Cheney it's not a done deal yet but there's this now put make donald trump and the republicans in two thousand twenty two that it's a referendum on his leadership and if republicans can't win the house and the senate with donald trump is the leader of the party. Is that finally the moment that that perhaps some of these elected leaders realize. Oh trump hasn't been good for the party well perhaps You know. I think it's a long. It's a long war and this is just the it's only been a couple of months and we've got to see what happens in twenty two and lead up to twenty twenty four This is going to be a battle for the soul of the republican party. And i think things are going to be a lot different a year from now in two years from now in four years from now than they are right now. I'm curious look go. After after the one thousand nine hundred ninety six when in nineteen seventy six after watergate. They said it was the death of the republican party and we came back four years later in one thousand nine hundred with the biggest landslide victories and history with ronald reagan. I wanna ask you about the pipeline situation because this pipeline goes through the state of maryland. How does something like this work. Are you alerted. Are you aware of this. And and these random attacks as you know small local government entities are getting hit with this almost every day and we don't seem to know how to deal with it. What's your.

Cheney is about much more than the sacking of the number three house republican it is an unconditional surrender by one of our two major political parties to former president trump.

That question you know i. I've lost confidence boosting. New york's elise stefanik who trump has endorsed. My vision is to run with support from the president. What they're saying is if you don't go along with the big lie. You basically need to go so phonic voted with president trump. Just seventy eight percent of the time. Criticizing is border wall opposing him on nafta and trade even voting against his signature. Twenty seventeen tax cuts. Cheney voted with trump ninety three percent of the time once trump critic has been insulting women stefanik became a high profile trump defender during his first impeachment when she opens that mouth you at killing them.

Louisiana Republican Bill Cassidy, there was that frank talk But there was also the frank discussion that we all care about the American people who are in need. So how could we come up with the best package for them can't guarantee that we come together, but it's a pretty good start.

Republicans Pitch Biden on Smaller Aid Plan
"A White House meeting between President Biden and 10 Republican senators went an hour longer than expected tonight as the group discussed covert relief. Republicans were presenting their alternative to the $1.9 Trillion covert relief package that President Biden has put forward. The Republican plan calls for less some $600 billion in aid instead, with smaller unemployment payments that expires sooner and smaller stimulus checks. Senator Bill Cassidy was at the meeting tonight. He's a Republican from Louisiana and joins us now. Welcome, Senator. Thank you all. So thanks for having me great to have you. Well, it sounds like it was a very long hopefully. Productive conversation. Where did you all leave it? Where we left it. You really shouldn't start off with a top line and work towards filling it up. You're basically trying to prove you care more about the American people by spending more. But of course, we recognize that we are borrowing this money, and there's a consequence and a knopper to nitty cost if you don't spend it wisely. So with that said both sides that okay, these are proposals and this is why we propose this amount and not that amount. I spoke to education on pointing out by the way that already we've appropriated about three times more than the centers for disease control say is necessary. For schools to safely reopen the president counters and several. This is my understanding, and we made a commitment that we would he would have his staff get us the facts.

Some of your Republican colleagues have argued that Using a process called reconciliation to pass this package that is Democrats passing it without any Republican support will make it harder in the future for both sides to work together. That said Republicans did use reconciliation back in 2017. When your party had control of the House, the Senate the White House in order to circumvent any objections from Democrats back then why should Democrats act any differently now?

Which is to say that on Lee something which is Germaine to the budget. Can be included. Right if you do that, then Katy Bar the door. They want to Democrats push to put through increasing the minimum wage of $15 certainly not remain to the budget, but that they would use this process to jam it through. Even though the CBO says that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would destroy 1.3 million jobs or something like that. Now, that's the sort of thing that should be discussed, debated not jam through on reconciliation because it has nothing to do whatsoever with Kobe. And it has nothing to do whatsoever with the, um the budget so you would end up destroying the institution. Republicans and Democrats to date have never attempted to destroy the institution. And their employment of budget reconciliation. Putting aside the issue of whether reconciliation being used in this case would violate the bird rule. Democrats did win a Senate majority, in part because they promised to send more relief aid to people. So elections have consequences. Right, Senator Why shouldn't Democrats try to use every tool within their disposal if Republicans are unwilling to sign on to the package that they want?

"I I haven't been radicalized. But I think a lot of Republicans in this town have been I think that they have changed the way they go about their business. Yes. Much of it is because of the leadership of the president showing that yes, you can push back. You can use their tactics. You can be audacious in revealing who they are. You don't always have to be the the lights, discreet, gentlemen at the table. Who sits with his ass, Scott, and his Thurston how the third captain's hat and doesn't get into the fray and mix it up. How dare you right? You don't have to be that way. You can not only the succeed. You can thrive by actually pushing back and calling out your political opponents for what they're doing. And who they are. But but this goes further than that. I think in the same way that we've seen leaders now and establishment Republicans starting to take this on. And I've played you three examples just from today. Lindsey Graham, Bill Cassidy and Mitch McConnell. Hardly, you know, fire-breathing opponents of the radical left, but they're actually using terms and tactics that would be perfectly in line with your most basic conservative activists with an Andrew Breitbart style of political rhetoric, but I think it it transcends. The you. If you are like me, I I often like to say this Donald Trump wasn't my first choice. He wasn't my second choice. I'm not an establishment guy. But but Donald Trump at the beginning on paper was not my ideal candidate when it finally came down to a choice in Maryland for three. It was John casick. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, and I voted for Ted Cruz because on paper as a candidate. He represented best. What I stood for. Even though at the time. I knew that Donald Trump is going to win the nomination. But I voted the way I voted. So he wasn't my first choice. Second search the. But he was my last choice by the time. It came time to vote for him in November. I had no hesitation to vote for him for president. It wasn't even close for me. I had no doubts. This was not a hold your nose kind of thing for me when I voted for Donald Trump for president. What's been amazing to watch the journey and transition of people who were that reluctant who who were so so reluctant and resistant to the idea of Donald Trump getting their vote November of two thousand sixteen and now look at look at the journey. They have gone on. And the reason I use the term radicalized is because that's what my my wife. Meredith says that these whenever Meredith goes on Twitter now, she's these people are radicalizing me. I'm being read Twitter at Twitter is radicalized me again. Because she is she is not been a ferocious partisan combative type there's only room in our marriage for one of those. But but she sees what's going on. And she jokingly says she's been radicalized Lindsey Graham been radicalized. Now, Mitch McConnell has been radicalized Ari Fleischer for God's that. You look at Ari Fleischer spokesman for George W Bush look at his Twitter feed. Dude is is but he's got a maga- hat on these days. So are you like that tell your story because I think this is a fascinating fascinating narrative in American politics. What we've seen happen to formerly staid respectable respectable. You know, cross the t's and dot the i's and play with it. You know color within the lines stay in the boundaries type of Republicans who have always, you know, we've always wanted to rise above the fray, we classy Republicans.
