Hi, thank you for answering my answering and talking with me, you bet I've been hearing you and listening to you is ninety two appreciate that. Yeah. Wonderful. I really enjoy listening to you. And getting a lot of information. Politically, especially anyway. My question is I Mr. stirs Thirdly said to get to it right away. If I could my question is has three little questions one being what is a provisional ballot. Could you explain that he ever to are what are under votes in water over vote? Yes. Yes. Excellent. Well, you're hearing a lot of talk about it. But you know, what it means? It's another one of these journalism. Like I said yesterday, they report on these fires and the Wolsey, but they never told me how the fires that. Why is it called Wolsey? And look it up. A provisional. Ballot is a ballot cast by somebody who may not be eligible to vote they show up at the polling place or they submit an absentee or an early vote. But they may be some question about their registration may not be registered. But they think they are they say they are. So you give people that can't prove their registered to vote and a provisional boat. They are not supposed to even be counted. On less races are very close. And. I mean, they are counted at the end of the proceedings, but they're they're not given any weight. This is why Democrats focus on them. They want the provisional ballots to count because they have a bunch of people out there casting and over vote. The simplest way to explain an over vote. Is somebody's voted for both candidates in a race. So and over vote would be where somebody voted for both. Rick, Scott and Bill Nelson. And under vote is a ballot that has cast for some races. But not all. So you can have somebody casting votes in the governor's race. But they didn't cast a vote in the Senate race that's considered an under voter and under ballot. And in both cases in recounts. This is why they wanna get to hand recounts manual instead of machine why the Democrats do because it's in these three instances where games can be played in the case of an under vote where nobody voted let's say somebody voted for Gillam in Florida Democrat for governor. But there's no vote for the Senate. Clearly, they intended to vote Nelson or give Nelson a vote even other isn't one bear that'll be the attempt over vote. Same thing if they vote for the Santa's Republican governor and vote for both Scott, and they'll say, well, they didn't intend to vote for Nelson because he voted for trying to take that away..

Let's go to Florida and our recounts are underway in the state's racist for the Senate and governor correspondent Peter King joins us in Orlando. Peter let's start with that Senate race. St. we go on for hours about this. But governor Rick Scott, the Republican leader right now has declared himself the Senator elect even though as you, and I talk he hasn't officially been elected to anything yet. He's been calling on Bill Nelson to concede saying that Bill Nelson's attorney is just racking up more legal fees with all the lawsuits that have been filed. And that Bill Nelson's tarnishing his legacy by prolonging the race. And of course, here in Florida. The recounts are triggered by law. It's not a demand by any candidate asks for Bill Nelson. The incumbent. Democrat all he said is look we want all the legal votes counted. And Rick Scott is making a lot of noise because he's a freight of losing. That's pretty much been the democratic argument all the way there's also challenges in the governor's race between democrat, Andrew gillum and Republican Ron descent is right. There's much more clarity in the governor's race. Because the manual recount was not triggered by the margin between Republican Ron, Shannon. And democrat Andrew gillum was just not that small to win the machine recount ended Thursday. It certainly looked like Rhonda Standish was going to be declared the winner, and they will make that official with the announcement on Tuesday as of late in the week, though Gillam still had not conceded saying there's still more votes to be counted.

"Bill Nelson has gone into hiding or else. It's time for a new staple job on the high cheekbones to maintain the never ending smile on the face, but he has released a YouTube video, and he is demanding that Rick Scott who is the governor of the state of Florida recused himself from the recount, we should have a common goal. And that is to make sure that every lawful vote is counted. And counted as the voter intended, Rick Scott is an interested in making sure every lawful vote is counted is using his power as governor to try to undermine the voting process. Scott cannot oversee this process in a fair and impartial way. And thus he should remove himself from any role in the retail. What about you you? Vested interests this as much as he does you see what this is about. All of this all of this language in here. We should have a common goal meaning that we don't. We all don't want every vote counted folks, some of us don't want every vote counted. And the reason those people don't want every vote counted is because they know that those votes most votes for Democrats. And so it's the Republicans who don't want most votes counted because they know most votes for Democrats. Yeah. We should have a common goal. And that is to make sure every lawful vote. Is counted ovo we must not have that common goal. Otherwise, Nelson wouldn't be speak up. You see? You see Republicans don't want every vote counted women truth. The Republicans want every vote counted once they wanted only legal votes counted. And they don't want anybody playing games with what a voter intended. Home is at work was okay. I'll give you an idea in Broward County and Palm Beach county, you have in both counties a very significant Jewish population, which predominantly volts liberal Democrat. So if you're into a hand count situation, and you come across a vote by a Jewish citizens for a Republican. Obviously, this is a mistake. This this this person didn't intend to vote for Republican. We shouldn't count this for the Republic. This actually happened in two thousand. It happened in two thousand because also on the ballot was Pat Buchanan, and it turned out that some Jewish voters voted for Buchanan. And even Buchanan was running around saying, I will be voting for me. Those votes are somewhat suspect. Well, who's to say, so you want to go in and judge the intention of voter after the fact not based on anything, you know, about the voter other than is religion. This is the kind of thing this is why this is why Nelson makes a point here of saying count every vote as intended. There's no way anybody knows that. But that also that was part of the hanging. Chad. Ballot would have one whole marked out fully Chad gone and the other candidate the Chad would still be there. But hanging loosely, you know, not fully removed, and so they would have to go interpret, the valid, you know, and then they would say, well, obviously, obviously this voter made a mistake and didn't want the vote for the Republican that's fully fully removed here. Because this obviously, it looks like somebody went back and tried to vote for the democrat. But didn't do it quite that's what the argument was. And that's why they wanted in part to continue to recount in two thousand over the chads. So this is so damned insulting Republicans. Don't want to count every vote because Republicans know that most voted for Democrats or Republicans want to suppress the boats, but we need to come together. And we need to have a common goal that is to make sure that every lawful vote is counted and as the voter intended. Well, there's no way a machine can tell you that folks. So they have to get to the manual recount. And they have to get to the provisional ballots is a Rick Scott is an interested in making sure every lawful vote is counted. That's a hell of an allegation that is a hell of an allegation nine in politics that you can. But Scott knows he won this. Scott knows that he's the winner. And yet Scott is not interested in making sure every loaf of vote is counted. What Scott's interested in is making sure that votes that never existed all of a sudden exist. What Scott's concerned about is that a bunch of lost votes that were blank all of a sudden end up founded schoolrooms or are the trunks of rental cars. What Scott is concerned about is that votes are going to be manufactured or that votes. For him are going to be lost or some such thing. And there's ample history the suspect this based on Brenda Snipes in two thousand sixteen who runs Broward County, and the the whole of the democrat polling operation in two thousand. So. Smiley face. Here says he's using his power as governor to try to undermine the voting process. Undermine the how can it be? That we have an election. The Republican wins the democrat concedes, and then votes continue to be counted in a democrat unconcealed, and in this scenario, it is the Republican trying to undermine the process. The whole process here is initiated by Democrats who once again are refusing to accept the results of an election just as they did in two thousand sixteen. That's what this is. They are refusing to accept the results of the Senate race in Florida and the governor's race. And so now Scott who's trying to undermine votes and make sure votes don't count and make sure people's votes are ignored should recuse himself from any role of the recourse. Get rid of the number one advocate for Rick Scott. Rick, scott. And the media amplifies this. This is totally reasonable Bill Nelson's making all kinds of sense. And this is how Republicans are continually portrayed as the enemy the enemy of democracy. The enemy of elections. When in fact, it is just the exact opposite. In fact, here's Andrew gillum. We went back two thousand two and a documentary film called unprecedented, the two thousand presidential election. This about the Florida recount and Andrew gillum was a student at Florida am after time again, this is two thousand six hundred sixteen years ago..

"Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire moments ago. The. Deadline was reached for every every Florida county submitted some machine recount results for the governors and Senate races with all but one county meeting that deadline Palm Beach county a bastion of democratic voters. Adding to the trove of bad news for the democratic incumbent. Senator Bill Nelson who already needs a straight at miracle to overcome the twelve thousand vote lead for his opponent, Republican Rick Scott, no one in the history of modern recounts has come close to closing a gap. Like that CNN's Ryan nobles Florida getting the latest result. And Ryan we're on day. Six of the Florida recount, I understand this is the process. This is how the state law is a center. But when when is it going to be over? Well, my wife is hoping before thanksgiving Jake, and it is supposed to be certified by the twentieth of November. What could happen today, and we're still waiting for those official recount numbers to come in is that they're going to take a second look at these numbers. And if any of these races are within a quarter of a percent that will automatically trigger a hand recount of over votes and under votes, and we do expect that to happen in both the Senate race and the agriculture Commissioner Ray. So the initial look at the numbers from this machine recount number, and we don't have the official numbers in from the the secretary of state yet. But looking at a county by county basis, it doesn't look like the machine recount really demonstrably changed very much from the results we saw on Saturday. Now, there's of course, a bevy of lawsuits being filed they're being hashed out in court of law that could impact this overall. But Jake if everything goes the way it's supposed to we should have the final numbers by the eighteenth of November the eighteenth of November. Okay. And Democrats continue to say that they believe there are enough votes out there. For Nelson to win. Even though he trails by twelve thousand votes. Have you seen any evidence at all that there are twelve thousand votes out there somewhere that will go net for Bill Nelson? Jake. I heard what majority or minority leader Chuck Schumer had to say yesterday about this particular recount process. And if we could play that bite, let's play it in then we'll talk about it after. Well, Bill Nelson is is strong as could be he believes I believe he's won a majority of the votes and as long as they're counted. He will continue being Senator from flawed. So a Chuck Schumer saying that he believes that he's won the majority of the votes. But to your point check, there is simply no evidence of that we've gone through an exhaustive count of eight and a half million votes in the margin is more than twelve thousand votes. We're now going through machine recount that doesn't look like the numbers are going to change all that much. The only way that you can make this argument is if there is some sort of dramatic problem with one of the machines in one of these counties, and if Democrats are able to win almost all of these lawsuits, if they have filed in federal court in within those lawsuits is revealed a whole bunch more votes for Bill Nelson at this point. There's just no evidence at this possibility exists, it would be a historic overcoming of a margin on election day, if this were change at this point just doesn't look like it's going to happen. All right. Well, this is the United States of America, people can have belief systems whatever they want Ryan. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Let's talk about this, David. I want to start with you. This looks like it's. Going to end with Republicans winning the Senate race and winning the governor's office. We don't know. It's not finally, but it looks as though and yet there are Republicans who continue to cast aspersions about the process, I want you to take a listen to congressman Matt gates giving an interview on Breitbart radio.

Let me just give you an update on Florida because it matters to every American here. You know, we we we've got to get these elections, right and have one more election season is ever allowed to go by in Florida and allow Broward and Palm Beach to do what they're doing. We will never ever going to get an accurate number already as it is. You know, we it is it is mind numbing. And then, of course, you got activist. Judges justices apparently one decision made by one judge the white for that judges. A Nelson donor over the years. I mean, there's so much out there. But you know, here we go again another judges stepped in the middle of this Florida fiasco. With a ruling that could impact Rick Scott and the recount Tallahassee federal judges given voters now until Saturday to fix balance that were tossed due to conflicting signatures, extending that extending the deadline now for counties to turn in the final election results, including machine results. Now, the judge said that state law lacks a concrete process for voters to challenge county canvassing boards that decided to reject provisional or vote by mail ballots due to signature mismatch doubt, it's ever gonna come near the twelve thousand five hundred sixty two vote deficit the Bill Nelson has, but this is what Marco Rubio was saying. It's like all right. So you down twenty four twenty two, you know, five seconds remaining you kick the field gold. And now after the fact the lawyers for the losing team commend in one. Arguing change the rules. That's only worth one point nine three. And this the there is no at the end of this. Let me tell you what it means win by. Any means necessary when the lawyers for gillum and Nelson went in there and said, and they said, well that person is an illegal immigrant objection. They wanna count that vote. We now have a report out and politico today. Most experts say no matter how many times they recount the votes. Andrew Gillon doesn't have a prayer of ever catching Ron Santa's. But that, you know, just head right to plan B, and in this case political reporting gillen's hope rides on a series of unlikely events tied to his fellow democratic Senator Bill Nelson filed up a host of lawsuits to broaden the pool of countable ballots by overturning or changing Florida election laws and rules after the game is played that does these lawmakers. They don't care about truth. And you wanna talk about sore losers. All the talk in two thousand sixteen Donald Trump loses. He's going to he's going to contest, the the honesty and integrity of our electoral. Process. Well, now, it's the Democrats doing it on a spectacular scale also happening in the state of Georgia as well in that governor's race. But you know, if if vote enough votes surface Gillam could still contest the election filing, a lawsuit within ten days after the election being officially certified that's supposed to happen November thirtieth. So we'll see what happens by January, basically is the end here. But I gotta hope by this time Republicans know what they're up against when you go from fifty seven thousand bolt lead down a twelve thousand five hundred volt lead you better pick it up. Then you just heard from the Palm Beach from Palm Beach county saying they will probably miss the deadline. As the judge gives voters time to fix ballots would signature issues. It's unbelievable. Is one report that we got that. Fox News is reporting that it has learned the Caron Walker. The wife of Judge Mark Walker who ruled the Nelson's favor this morning as previously donated money to Bill Nelson's campaigns, which would raise questions about whether or not he should have recused himself notice. It's only Republicans that recused himself. You know in the case of okay Jeff Sessions. He had no reason recused himself. The reason he gave the time was that. While I campaign with Donald Trump doesn't mean he can't be a fair objective. Discerning attorney general rod Rosenstein, he was way conflicted in this because he was the one that wrote the letter about James Comey and recommended the firing and then he signed the fourth and final Biza warrant and at that point what else? You can't be more involved. He's almost like well witness a in on on both sides of this. So now are they going to give voters more time? We don't have an exact number that they are putting out there in terms of how many people, it's unknown. How many discarded ballots are at stake? But it's at least three thousand six hundred eighty eight according to election officials lawyers for Nelson filing a motion with the secretary of state to produce the names of all the peoples mail in provisional ballots were thrown out. So I guess we'll find out by one o'clock today that same judge. We'll be hearing that and then a thirty four page ruling that relies on a lot of football metaphors. Walker said the secretary of state boast order supervisors of elections that the state scheme as it applies to curing mismatch signatures is unconstitutional. Consider the game of football football fans may quibble about the substance of the rules. But no one quibbles that the rules are necessary. -ssary to play the game. And it goes on from there. So we'll find out doesn't look like there's going to be enough votes. But I at this point who could predict anything that won't be done to to grab this election. If you will. You know, also Florida Democrats plan to use altered forms to fix mail ballots across the state deadline. Now, we're finding that little fact out bins filled with balance are stacked at the Broward County supervisor of elections office as employees now counting ballots during this recount going on there, but a day after Florida's election that was the Wednesday after the Tuesday top state races too close to call Democratic Party leaders. Directed staffers involuntarily to share altered election forms with voters to fix signature problems on absentee ballots after the state deadline. That's another law that they've broken here. How many laws have broken before anyone ever gets held accountable? I guess it's just like Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton gets away with anything and everything every single time. So we're going to watch all of this patiently as this unfolds. Let me go to the issue and we'll get calls. I'm going to take a lot of calls, and of course of the program today. So Michael avenue ATI has been arrested for felony domestic violence. He came out last night. And I think we have the tape and strongly defended himself that he's never done any such thing.

Florida counties working to meet recount deadline
"Three o'clock as mandated by law. Every county is supposed to complete a recount in very close races, including for Senator and governor last minute lawsuits and a plea from democratic Senator Bill Nelson have not changed that nor has news that at least one big Florida county is unlikely to make the deadline NPR political correspondent asthma holidays in that county Palm Beach county. Hey there. Hey, good morning. So I'm just looking at a map here Palm Beach county, right? Next to Broward County at south Florida. It's outside of Miami, beautiful beaches and so forth, but what's going wrong? Well, so far at this point. They just have not been able to it looks like meet the deadline, and it would really be a miracle at this point if they're able to do this and part of this is that they have these machines that are older. And so they can only recount individually one race at a time. So they got gotta run the governor's the Senate race. I then they're gonna run the governor's race. So Susan Booker who's the election supervisor has really said that she's in prayer mode that they'll actually finish this. I have to say that I'm working as hard as I can get any more. You know, why this is our democracy? And I'm here to count every vote, and I will take the time that's required. And you can see I haven't been home for three days. Steve the thing is there is this looming deadline, but for hours yesterday, there was just one machine running, and that's because on top of the fact that they have these older machines. They've also had tech difficulties with these machines they overheated on Tuesday. And that meant that they had to recount a hundred and seventy five thousand early ballots that they had all ready recounted in a nutshell, though, if they're not able to meet that deadline, according to Florida law, the provisional results that they've already submitted to the state, those are the ones that are gonna stand. Okay. So that may be what we end up with in Palm Beach county, and we'll see other counties are turning in their recounted results. There's this three pm deadline. What happens after that? Well, if a race comes down to being within a quarter of a percent, then there will be a manual recount. And in the governor's race. This is likely not going to be the what's hit. Right. So the governor's race we're likely to see some results after today that are more official. But in the Senate race, Republican Rick Scott leads Democrat Bill Nelson by about twelve thousand five hundred votes, which translates to point one five percent. So in a race like that we're going to have a manual recount most likely I will not be all of the ballots. It's just going to be those people who had either chosen multiple candidates who had not chosen a candidate. At all the official returns are then do by noon on Sunday. And I do want to say one quick thing though about eight last minute. Judge's ruling that we saw this morning. She ruled in favor of a challenge by Bill Nelson to give voters until Saturday to correct any issues with mismatched signature this decision is going to affect only Floridians who cast their ballots by mail or voted provisionally. So it's a limited four thousand plus people as a pretty narrow decision. But that's where things stand that is the timeline assuming they are no more rulings from the judge today. Okay. Could further delay the deadline, asthma, very briefly. What are you hearing from Floridians about all of this? Yes, I have been in and really Steve locals. Tell me that they are embarrassed and frustrated one Republican woman told me that they feel like they look like fools to the rest of the country that people don't seem to understand really why this is happening. They feel like it makes their county look suspicious, and what I will say Steve is this frustration feels fairly bipartisan and a big part of this problem. You know, people are saying is the technology. These outdated machines, the county Palm Beach county is planning on getting more modern machines by twenty twenty. But overall people wanna feel like this is gonna work NPR's s Muhammad in Palm Beach county, Florida aspe-, thanks.
Florida counties working to meet recount deadline
"Is racing toward a recount deadline. The razor thin margins in the governor's race and Senate race triggered an automatic machine. Recount saturday. According to unofficial results filed by the county's Republican governor, Rick Scott leads incumbent democratic Senator Bill Nelson by more than twelve thousand five hundred votes. The two have gone right at each other Bill Nelson is clearly a sore loser. He can't stand the fact that he's not going to be elected for what the first time. In decades. One fact is that Rick Scott is an interested in making sure every law for voters counted and the second is that he's using his power as governor to try to undermine the voting process.

"bill nelson" Discussed on Vox's The Weeds
"Would Bill Nelson camp is hoping is that winning recount is conducted. It will turn out that this was some kind. Scanning error, right for whatever reason. The machines did not register the Senate votes because it seems likely that these people in a heavily democratic county who voted on the down ballot races that they want to Bill Nelson to be the Senator right? Just like our best guess as human beings is that that is their intention. Now, what Nelson is hoping is that when you check the ballots, you will find clear indications that they were trying to vote for Ben Nelson that the machines didn't pick up a villain Bill Nelson. A very realistic possibility though is that he's going to be out of luck. Here that what happened is is that Broward County chose to design the ballot such that the Senate race was on the second page below some voting instructions because they put stuff on the first page, and then they put instructions at the bottom, and then there's a second page with more races. Right. And it's possible that the recount will show these people voted, but it's. Very possible. I would say more likely than not that a lot of people saw the page. Saw the instructions vote in the stuff ahead of it. And just ignored the west. And this would be a case of county officials in county government, that's controlled by Democrats just screwing themselves, which would be painful to to Nelson, painful, Democrats nationally, and especially painful because xactly what happened in two thousand in Palm Beach count. It drives me a little bit crazy with like national policy hanging in the balance that this is something we still deal with on a very local level that you have each county designing ballots making these decisions. So, you know, whether you out one county over from our that you're gonna see a different ballot. And you know, you might not have the Senate race on the second page, it this is an area where you know, you could see. So much like research going into like the best way to design it to ensure that it's like, you would you use your testing like Etta county government level, you probably don't have the resources to like test out of balance. So I do not know a lot about the history of election administration, the US, but it seems a little bit wild that, you know, we leave this as a county and even like things like precinct size, for example, are very much like left up to the local level. And then if you look at the research on that like that could have a huge effect on outcomes your voting in a bigger precinct. That's going to change things. It's kind of striking that we leave all of this to the smallest possible units of government who have the least resources to figure out like, okay? Like, how can we do the best job at the end? We clear me while this Florida election is a big deal. People often forget this because you can't litigate poor design. Right. So when wound up happening in two thousand was a lot of litigation about hanging chads and various things like that. But what's very clear is. That Palm Beach county in that election designed their presidential ballot. An odd way they made it a little bit visually unclear which box was out gore in which box was Pat Buchanan and pep Buchanan. Got really unusually large vote in Palm Beach county, which doesn't seem like Buchanan country. Right. So it's not a legal question right in terms of the legal legitimacy of Bush's presidency. But I think it's very clear that not only Bush lose the popular vote, but that had the ballot been designed better would lost Florida. This whole question of the recount would be mood, and like very literally the whole history of the world for the past twenty years would look radically different right? Like, the consequences of the Senate razor large like the consequences of presidential elections are very very large. And it's done by local officials, theoretically the incentives are aligned correctly. Right because like..

What's a historic election without a recount in Florida. The state's Senate race is very close. Republican governor Rick Scott is leading the incumbent. Senator Bill Nelson Scott has even claimed victory. But the Democrats camp says, wait a minute NPR's, Debbie Elliott is covering the story from the Florida panhandle. Hi, debbie. Stay Bill Nelson side sang exactly well, they're saying we're proceeding to a recount now. This race is too close to call. It's within the margin in Florida that can trigger an automatic recount. That's less than a half percent. The latest numbers have Rick Scott up by about thirty four thousand votes cast that's out of eight point one million. Now, don't get visions of hanging chads in the scenario that you and I witnessed playing out in the two. Two thousand presidential race here in Florida, this time state law will call for an electronic retali- that will go on at all of the sixty seven county supervisors of elections. It has to be ordered by the secretary of state that hasn't happened yet that could happen at any point. Meantime, the Nelson campaign is sort of saying we're going to be watching, you know, like we we want to we have lawyers out. We're gonna go to all those counties. We're going to watch for any irregularities just to make sure that there's no shenanigans. I guess we should keep this in perspective in the year two thousand and finally came down to a difference. According to the supreme court ruling of five hundred thirty seven votes between George W Bush, and Al Gore for the presidential vote in Florida in two thousand in this case as you said, there are thirty four thousand votes at the moment. Separating the candidates granted there may be ballots and other things, but this is a pretty big margin to overturn into a recount it is. But you know, I think the Democrats are going to hold onto every chance they get in Florida because last night was not not great for them. So Debbie, you're there in Florida you're talking with people you've covered Florida for years. I just want to note for people. This is a swing state that has gone narrowly, but decisively importantly for Republicans and number of times. Times in recent years, two thousand sixteen for President Trump and here two thousand eighteen. The Senate at the moment as far as we know barring the recount changing things and also the governor's race. Right. And the Republicans have held the legislature and the governorship here for twenty years and should Bill Nelson lose his Senate seat. He's the lone statewide elected office holder who has a democrat if he were to lose it would be the first time in like more than one hundred years that to Republicans would represent Florida in the US Senate. So a lot of change. You could say that that Republicans here are really solidifying their hold on the state, which is not something that a lot of political observers expected. What does that say about the direction of the south direction of American politics that Democrats would run the campaigns that they have and they may well have lost the big marquee races. Well, I think this year it says that Donald Trump has a lot of support in this part of the country. I think that it was very much a win for the president that Rhonda Santa's won the governorship here. He came out early endorsing him. When there were better funded and more well known Republicans who wanted that job, and he very much ran a campaign sort of echoing the kinds of themes that we've been hearing from Donald Trump, and I talked to voters here.

"Our country needs to have senator bill nelson from florida had sent out a tweet after the president's announcement reads like this saying that the president told a us general to create a space forces the six branch of military which generals tell me they don't want thankfully the president can't do it without congress because now is not and that's an all capitals the time to rip the spare force apart too many important michigan state how significant is it that bill nelson said that now it is significant because the senate has opposed this and the air force he is correct that the air force has vehemently opposed this idea from the beginning from the two thousand one space commission report the air force has not wanted to do this they would be giving up a decent part of their budget now a lot of responsibility here and it you know it is the fact that we're talking about it is an implicit indictment of how the air force has handled space so there's been a lot of opposition now last year there was a bill in congress as part of the national defense authorization act the house version of that bill would have created a space corps within the air force that passed the full house of representatives now the senate did not include a similar provisions that when they went to conference committee what came out of it was they were gonna take a pause and studied the issue some more and so right now dod as mandated to do two different studies one is what they can do in the near term in terms of reorganizing and doing acquisition for space better and that's due in august to congress the other one is doing december and it explicitly says you will come back with a road map for how to create a separate department for space so that road map is due in december and so i think that that's going to set this up to be hotly debated in congress next year as part of the fiscal year twenty twenty national defense authorization act i fully expect that we're going to see the house at least move forward with legislation to create something like a space corps space force and the senate is less certain you know like senator nelson there are a number of people in the senate who have come out and openly opposed this a lot of that opposition though has been backstopped by the air force by the air force telling them we don't want it but now that the president has ordered the military to get on board with this and start preparing for it because that's actually what it statement said is it don't go create it he said begin the preparations for it it's going to be very difficult for the air force to oppose this you know especially the secretary of the air force who works for the president at his pleasure you know she's not going to be able to get out there and opposed this vigorously at least not in the public and so without that opposition from the air force the senate may actually start acquiesce to what the house has been proposing joe is from auburn alabama republican line this is she's been radio programming from monday wcs pf from yes well i've been sitting here watching i i i like you're saying that if we could do you know which i'm an old man but it seemed like just yesterday i can remember intending back game riches from yeah i mean where's the papal sent but venture you know we've come a long way so with that well you know i is it the caller from auburn alabama i believe you're probably in the district of representative mike rogers who is the champion within the house and the house armed services committee four creating a space corps he and his democratic counterpart on the strategic forces subcommittee his counterpart is jim cooper from tennessee they're the ones who have been championing this legislation in congress and so you know representative rogers has come out and said that you know he's thrilled that president trump has gotten behind the idea but there's still a long way to go and again you know the caller reference images from the moon this would not affect nasa or space exploration that would not be part of the space for us this would only reorganize what the military is doing and national security space before i let you go real quick the house or the senate is.
