"Shirt. I would spend a lot of time at bourbons bistro. And i have to tell you like. I don't think that man ever gets enough credit for what he has done for bourbon Being the first like bourbon. Themed restaurant in kentucky. And you know. I just i just think the world of jason and He would have all of these like the cantors in he'd get these beam decanters he would get all these old cheryl's he would get everything man would never charge you just sitting there and you would just be drinking with him talking you know. Vh would come on sometime. We would just be sitting there. Bourbons bistro or out on his patio be tricking. three kids. nineteen fifties Kentucky tavern and like talking about How good it was in sports and it was just. I look back on that time of my career and i just miss it so much. I miss it so much. But that was that was where i cut my teeth on on on dausi's and it would be it would lead me to meeting random people and parking lots and literally handing over bags of cash. Estate sales you know shown up to every yard sale in the county ghani bourbon and it could take you down a very weird path. I just. I just missed those times. Those are thoroughly. Does i mean yeah. We've been there with jason up in his his Office where all the decanters. I mean he. He's such a great coast and knows all the history and everything. About each one and you he gets one to kendra down and you talk about it for like thirty or forty minutes and then you move on the next one. it's a. It's a great time. But the i mean i i would say bill thomas was probably for for me anyways as gonna use your sherpa. my sherpa you in the dusty bourbons and talking about two great sherpas here. How gosh. I mean bill. Just get so excited animated. You know when he's talking about it and I had the lucky opportunities status house. And you know drink. Some of the green glass van winkle rise from orangeburg and stuff and man that was like the best price whiskey ever ever had in my life and You know some people just like old stuff because they just don't like the president you know but there is something magical about drinking history you know thinking about what was going on. In that time you know what was going on in the world and it's just a fascinating thing and something unique. You get to experience every time you do. And it's also very important for us to talk about the differences in how they were made a lot of these played. A lot of these brands will have the same recipe but we are looking at depending on the generation of the time. You're looking at like different. Water was being used right. So in different techniques for the water at the very basis of the core of like all the all the parts of what whiskey is it was all very different the corn if it was pre- if it was pre nineteen fifties it was it was it was non hybrid corn starting until the nineteen fifties little bit in the forties. You know after we had so many people starving with the with the great depression and everything and the dust bowl Scientists started working on like hybrid corn. Which would basically allow the farmers to have something. That was a little bit more drought resistant. And then so they were breeding corn in labs. You know that would later turn into genetically modified corn and you know so if we're tasting something pre nineteen fifty five Really pre nineteen seventy. The chances are you are. You are tasting a whiskey that the farmer had actually planted the seeds and had developed corn strain in his own or her own farm. And that right there. You know the those are two things. The water. the corbin differently Well the most important factor in my opinion is the distillation technique. It's the fermentation technique. It's the yeast. And of course the would most of the would used for the barrels of basically named elsa basically. The thing is everything. Well i was. I was gonna say would within about the important. If you take all of those things you know of all those things being the most important the would we're looking at i growth. Would you know the the would. That's being used right now for For barrels they're being a plucked on private land. You know there between sixty and ninety years old the the trees that people were cutting down back. Then there's a good chance man that that a human hadn't seen that tree in In the nineteen forty to nineteen seventies until someone hit with a chainsaw or or a blade you know so you're looking at like the very best evoke different techniques on on making whisky and also the renault computers. There were no there not automation. It was humans doing everything. And then you had some people. Like pappy van winkle who actually resented the growth of in the industry to the point where he put up signs like no chemists allowance. There was a lot more attention to human detail than to computer efficiency. Yes so we have seen a lot of changes over the years In terms of like what goes into the bottle of the recipes may be the same. They like to say that a wild turkey and that is true. But there's also been some legal changes that have allowed whiskey to be different nineteen sixty two. They increase the barrel entry proof from one hundred and ten from the legal maximum to one hundred twenty five by increasing it to one hundred twenty five. They could get more volume Basically put out more bottles thus make more money. It also reduces the tax there basically their tax liability. But there's only a handful of bourbons today that if you were to say like okay. We're going back to the laws of nineteen fifty-eight only handful of bourbons. I would be considered bourbon today. Four roses wild turkey. Everything buffalo trace would not be considered bourbon because none of them are going into the barrel at one hundred ten acres mark on the other hand and a and things like a wilderness trail You know those would be definitely be considered you know burr because because you're going one hundred ten so there's a lot of production factors that make this whiskey to me. Always that much more special in also it is incredibly incredibly inconsistent and as i point to tops here in that one over there the enclosures that they used dictate the flavor that we get today. Sometimes it you get a you get a dusty that tastes spot on and it's exactly like it should be or sometimes you get one like i like i had recently with a nineteen forty-five kentucky tavern and I mean it tasted like sweat. Leather and In gross in as because like a gym if you will lie is just like a gym in the inside of the cap if you take a look underneath year so sometimes you see there's like there's some little plastic he kind of like. There's an adhesive there You know if it's not stored properly that adhesive gets into the whiskey and you don't want that it does not taste good. All of those miniature bottles I used to collect miniature bottles and You crack open no matter what the whiskey is. It's it's gonna it's gonna be contaminated from the cap and typically and so you you really do not always get a great experience with the dusty but when you do magical magical so we heard fred's sort of take on that it takes everything rondi is there. Is there one thing that we look at in regards industies. I mean there's would there's corn.

"And of life experts, and they also changes to aging that might not reverse because of the Corona virus pandemic. Her new article in The journal is how Cove in 19 will change aging and retirement and she joins us now and welcome tour. You know, for a lot of people if they're not there yet. This is research. You know, this is peering into the future as you have, so let's just plunge right in number one on your list. More people will be aging at home. This is after 40% of Americans who died of covert 19 died in care facilities. In fact, you talk to people who said many nursing homes may be going out of business. Yeah, So that was just the number one answer that people had When I threw the question out. You know how will call the change aging? You know, it's sort of shown the shortcomings of institutionalized care where we have seen the huge amount of covert related deaths. So you know, looking at The future and the possibility of future pandemics or future outbreaks of some kind of infectious disease. There's just not a lot of confidence, and that is the solution for people. Well, The other thing is that adult Children I think they're going to be traumatized for a long time by not being able to see their loved ones. I mean, I could hear people saying never again nursing homes and care facilities. They're still gonna be invaluable for people who can't Care for people at home. But talk about some of the resource is that people are dying now, Maura. I mean this idea of Medicare programs like program of all inclusive care for the elderly. That's a Medicare sponsored service or The idea of expanding Medicaid and paying home health aide workers more than as you remind us the $17,000. That's the average annual income for a home health aide. Talk about some of things people are thinking about. I mean, the thought that a lot of the people I spoke to have is that we're going to end up with higher quality nursing homes. At the other end of the spectrum, you know more people who can stay at home will stay at home through programs like the acronym is the Pace program gets a jointly paid program by Medicare and Medicaid. It's helping only about 50,000 people right now with needs like Medical services, an adult day care and home care and transportation. The thought is that that could be expanded. If the finances were there that could enable a lot more people to stay at home. Well, it costs, you know, maybe 7000 month instead of 9000 month for someone in a nursing home, so it is cost effective in the long run. Also the fact that Medicaid program right now is experimenting with paying Some family caregivers, and another thought is that that could be expanded. Also, if somebody's taking care of a loved one, they would get paid for that. But there's also a trend that you write about towards smaller group homes. Talk about that. Yes. So One of the people I spoke to for this article is a guy named Bill Thomas, who has done UNP huge number of very interesting things in his life, one of which is to start something called the Greenhouse Project. These air smaller, very home like care facilities were up to 12 residents will live together with open floor plans and Dining rooms and fireplaces and open kitchens that everybody can work in together. They have done fairly well thus far through the pandemic in terms of their infection rates, so these are thought to be a better model for the future. Of course, it's more expensive. You say All older people are benefiting from a technology boom. There are wearables There. Zoom. There's telemedicine. Tell us more about that. A lot of people. I spoke to have said that being on lockdown has spurred a lot of entrepreneurs to think about what people will need in order to exist better at home as they age. Telemedicine is one of the examples that we've seen really take off well, and many people growing older, really moving towards healthier lifestyles may be feeling lucky that they missed Cove in 19. So there's all these wearables to track blood pressure to track glucose levels. There are raps where you can call for help. You write about new ways to avoid isolation? Yeah, I love some of these ideas. I think people are getting very creative. You know, one of these companies it's called Discover live. I believe they have these virtual kind of tours that they can take you on that are live streamed, and there's an actual tour guide there who can answer your questions and take you to different places. And then there are other companies. There's a company called El Darra that pairs older adults with Children who need homework. Help, I know was a mom. I could have used that assistance and one called table wisdom, which I thought was a great idea where Foreign born students are paired with older people who are willing to kind of just sit and have a conversation with them so they can improve their English. Those are some of the ones that I just thought were especially Creative at connecting people and also connecting people across generations. But I want to talk about savings because people have been impacted here as well. Will you tell us what's the biggest impact on people from Cove in 19 having to do with their finances? Yes. So it's not a pretty picture. I mean, obviously the stock market has been up and you know that's a good thing, but we've seen bond yields. Decline and in general that just makes it a lot harder for people, especially people in retirement tend to really hold a lot of bonds for for very good reason. Because they're a lot less volatile than stocks. They're more predictable. A lot of people at least a generation ago, relied on bond yields to Support themselves. They would you know, they would live off the yield and leave the underlying principle That's just not realistic anymore. So the idea is that just because you don't get it very good return on those investments, you need to probably save more. And there are people who are saying you might need to even save 20% more in order to live on what you project. You'll need that. At the same time, Social Security is facing potential shortfall in its trust fund looming in about a decade, and covert is actually impacted that by about a year, so the trust fund is expected to become depleted a year earlier than we had thought before. So overall, it's not a very pretty picture for the financial situation of many retirees today. You know, this may cause people to just work longer work longer. You will You spoke to somebody at AARP. It sounds like they're saying before you put money in a 401 K, which might be hard to access. If you're funneling some savings anywhere,.

So what's with that? I'm excited to hear this story and introduce to you built on us. Welcome, buddy. Thank you, Phil. Thanks for having me indeed, man. So Air Force veteran, You know, I'm a Navy guy. I could make a joke. But then again, you joke great back because you know, Air Force and Navy went on always known as the toughest guys. But man, there's some toughness and some metal in your background. And we're going to follow that up with the story about what it's like to be a cop in Newark and man, you've done some incredible things, and you've had some life changing experiences that the wounded warrior project helped you out with and make some positive changes in your life, And it's that It's that kind of trauma and drama that I know everyone in this world experiences at some point in their life that I want to highlight through your example. So let's start man. Let's go way back and Bill Thomas's life, Man, Tell me about Joining the air Force. When did you do it? Why'd you want to do it? I'm a child of the Vietnam era. Um, I actually had these little green plastic army men. Oh, my goodness. I had Ah, shoebox full of them, And I said, you know what I want? I want to do that. I want to serve my country and I turned 17 on actually enlisted in tow. US Air Force Bill would do eight years with the air Force, get married, have some kids and create a family of his own. But his career of service was just getting started. After that time, Uh, I actually took the test in New Jersey. Come police officer on the North Police Department and that spent 25 years there. I worked everything from patrol to homicide. I mean, just the whole gamut. 1998 I met. I was part of it. The task force in New Jersey and I met on our Air Force National Guard member who's assigned to the task force, and we began to talk about military military service. And he told me about the unit he belonged to and gave me a actually a number of a herder. So I called the recruiter and in 1998 realistic And the way it works out. The way it worked out was With my previous service, and the time that I had in the police Department not to retire from both this year, So it was just it just worked out perfect, so to speak. Perfect until 9 11. And afterward his guard unit would get called up for active duty and Bill Now a veteran New Jersey cop would have to deploy with the military. I wasn't sorry, actually, twice early 1999. And then in 2007. My unit was mobilized and we took over the security operation that Magnus internationally, Of course, the military control We, uh, went to do weapons inspections on the, uh, Iraqi controlled out of the airport. We were signed a building. So we actually go into the building of the canine handler over watch with me. So we go in the dog. One in Spain and I remember turning my head. On the corner. My huge flash. You know, then you get to found on because it was a cement building. Uh, gold. And I see the canine handler tossed back. You know, he was just thrown on the floor of the dog was just gone. Instinct kicks in, you know, grab him. I'll watch grabs the other side and we drag him out. He was eventually able to get back up on his feet. So what happened was the dog make connection with some exposed wiring and threw a transformer, But I remember this guy's body smoking. Oh, my God. Oh, my God! Oh, my God. It didn't really affect me then. But it brought back memories of when I was in the police department. And it was a cold war looking have Ah Superior Court child just walked out of the courtroom. It was executed shot in the head. I remember being there with my captain and just seen my coworker just In a pool of blood sucking. All of these things began to come back. It really, really began to trouble me, theywill sinister deployment on then come home thinking I was the same person, but that was not the case. My heart goes out to you and I can on ly imagine, I mean Two full careers of service that have Walked you. Write down a path to witness some really tough stuff. This is where I kind of want to sort of put this into terms. People can understand, because even if you're not a combat veteran, even if you haven't had a career in law enforcement, you know these dense thes dings, thes traumas, these thes stresses and let's face it, the unusual an uncomfortable situation of being near death. Could happen to a lot of people in a lot of different ways. It wasn't until 2008 that you said that you'd woke up in a body bag. Tell me about 2008. And what was it that made that final decision, Teo, you know, go ahead and get some help. I came on the same person that I love. You know, I went back to work and Oh, my goodness, early June I came home and markedly, in fact, to the police department..

"We want to make off of you. But what we want you to do and succeed. That's the true fiduciary does we have to put your needs above ours? We can not take commissions out of your money. So if you're dealing with a broker a lot of times you'll see your money go down. Even if the market's up. That's because you have too many financial termites. Risk fees, commissions. I love that term. Yes, yeah, it is a very powerful You don't have a sounder for that. No, we don't. We need to develop one. It would just wait here. Okay? Have you ever seen this? This I enjoy Stephen King, and he has a movie long time ago called the langoliers. As a bunch of these little things eating away the world. And I imagine your financial termites is just being this round round this well, there are a lot more silent than this. So the crickets and too bad the term I still make a noise like that. Hey, honey, I think we got termites in house plan to be very careful. That's why we put together though you know, I've taken a lot of time just to take the fiduciary standpoint and the view from a fiduciary And put together a two book set called The Virtual Fiduciary Plan, where you Could Do your own home study. We do have a lot of folks were testing this. We descend folks on with of the rough drafts, and they come back to say, Gosh, I really understand Now. What do we do? Next is faras. We've we now understand that our money isn't going to give us income unless we get into an income plan. What do we do next? And that's when we the next step is to get that total retirement plan, and that's about 22 steps we do behind the scenes and looking at all the different things that we've seen people need when they get towards retirement, not in retirement or even Indian retirement to But sometimes before that, Yeah, it's checking all the boxes. Thomas in long term care, a state planning life insurance. Do we have the right combination? Who's going to pay that long term care Bill Thomas because Who it's getting expensive out there and and so and who knows what the new things going to be that surround the killer is going to throw a wrench into our plan. Right? So we need to build a plan that doesn't depend on no wrenches being thrown in so we can either withstand the wrench is being thrown in or have that advance. It protects tragedy That does not go down. If we have a bad thing going on, Not all your money, but as far as a lifetime income, it needs to be in a place that doesn't depend on the market and can't be destroyed. By a bad market environment, and that's very important and folks the number to connect to getyour own virtual fiduciary plans to books at 806 617383 806 617383 or TEX Plan to 21,000 Plan to 21000 Thomas. We get a lot of calls every single week with people wanting to put together their own strategies, their own plants making or have a review, making sure they're in the right place. A lot of noise out there in the financial world, but to get a real plan that you could be really confident in and not wonder all the time. If it's going to do what it says is going to do so again, Deal with a planning from that has never had a complaint.

"What if I'm a true believer in what I believe is an individual. I'm a believer. I'm an entrepreneur I would start my own business 'cause I looked like this. I'm nineteen years old if I fail. I'm no worse off. I take a year out of school. I'll go out into the big world and the frontier and create a business. What business is gonna create? I want to do a little research. So I took my money out of the market. I refinance the car I had and I opened probably the biggest business he ever heard of Kevin knows deli opened a little deli at a name. And after myself, I was the get to named after myself and create this deli. It teaches me a lot about business teaches me a lot about creating something teaches me a lot about regulations, and what the city looks at and I had about four or five employee's. So it taught me about who this FICO was. And why I was paying this money on people talking about that every time I hire somebody had actually cost me money is supposed to actually maybe I should get a reward because I took somebody and gave him a job. And I did pretty well. So and how we're gonna hear this narrative come back throughout his career about his small business years, and the lessons that he took that help frame as his political point of view, every politician you cover has the narrative, and but Kevin McCarthy says really tied to this time running the small business when you look at his biography. It was a really brief tenure. Why do you think that had such an impact on him while whether it had the impact he says, it does I don't know? I mean, I think it's a great narrative politician whose who's run on sort of antitax platform his entire career. Starting from when he was in California. He would often say look these legislators on the Democratic Party. They you know, they've never run a business. Like, I have. They don't understand what it means. Every time you raise taxes even the smallest amount. What it does to a business? It's a it's a great piece of his narrative for fits into his politics perfectly. So works for him. And you're right. He does talk about it over and over again. Crowd-pleaser and the he's told this story hundreds of times in his life, especially during his political career. And there are slight variations every time he tells it, and in fact, the Washington Post fact checker did an analysis of this of the story of of Kevin owes deli and found some inconsistencies, nothing agree GIS. But for example, he says that he won the lottery and then opened his belly when he was nineteen years old. In fact, the California lottery didn't start until Kevin McCarthy was twenty one years old. And so there are some inconsistencies but to Evans point. It helps him tell the story of why he is a Republican, you know, taxes regulations managing employees things like that. And so it fits perfectly for for his political goals. Let's remember he he's also been under siege. Since he joined leadership when he didn't become speaker last time they were talking about this guy from establishment. He's just this establishment person we need a fresh face. And so this story gives him some street cred that I'm not just a politician. He's been a politician my whole life. So his bid for the house of representatives was in the two thousand six election. You talked about Bill Thomas as his mentor. We covered Bill Thomas for a lot of years here. Personality wise, the two couldn't be more different. Really? Oh, how can you talk about that mentor mentally relationship and let your observations worry about it is really interesting because McCarthy's not known as one of these crazy mean bosses, you know, he's he's a very sorta can get along with anyone get along guy. Thomas was a different personality. But I think that that speaks to just just why McCarthy is as good as he is. And how he's been able to rise because he doesn't he he just can't get along with anyone, you know, people don't like it. I mean, you know to Los Angeles Times, we were constantly reading tough stories about him. Thomas about Kevin McCarthy. Also and. Comes into the room. And you know, I mean look at look at Devon's I mean, he doesn't talk to the press anymore. He's he's so angry about it. And and also some other Republicans in California feel. Aggrieved McCarthy, he he doesn't he doesn't have that kind of personality. And so it's it's served him. Well, the fact that he could get along with Bill Thomas get along with John bainer get along with Paul Ryan, all these very different people, and they all feel that he's intensely loyal to them. So our first video of him on the house floor occurred in January of two thousand seven right after he came in as a freshman, congressman, let's watch. The gentleman is recognized for two minutes. I think the gentlemen from California for yielding, Mr Speaker. I believe congress is a marketplace of ideas at the end of the day the best idea should win. Unfortunately, the process today that will not happen. Allowing a vote on an alternative minimum wage approaches in America's best interest. Republicans offer a balanced approach to increase the minimum wage and provide offset tax relief for small businesses to take on the increased labor costs for minimum wage hike. The unbalanced approach of the Democrat Bill HR to to slowly increase, the minimum wage is responsible never mind that the basic economic state setting an artificial price floor like the minimum wage could actually raise unemployment Federal Reserve study states that if HR enacted a million restaurant workers could lose their job. I can tell you as a former small business owner personally. This is a tough decision. I came to congress to work to increase opportunity for all Americans not to harm workers and small businesses. I listened to the bay today, and I listened to the other side as a freshman. If you look at the Republican Bill, it is a compromise. It is a common solution, the minimum wage will be increased. But what else will happen? They'll be greater healthcare for the workers. You'll be tax relief where you can expense off when you buying business equipment. What happens the workers of America are more competitive in a global economy for the twenty first century, and I asked my colleagues on the other side last week and this floor I listened closely to what our speaker said speaker Pelosi said less work in a spirit of partnership. Not partisanship. Well, I will tell you the Republican Bill is just that it is a partnership that lets the power the idea win at the end of the day. I thank you for the time. Scott long. So we're entering the air of congress flipping back and forth from party control and everyone talks about bipartisanship. But what's the reality of the congress that Kevin McCarthy came into two thousand seven and what it's been like since? Well, let's see those were the Nancy Pelosi years when he arrived, and then it became the banner years. You know, they haven't been terribly bipartisan. I mean, that's that's the reality. And it looks like even in the in the Trump era, especially as we are. She government shutdown and out of a government shutdown and back in it. Things haven't changed all that much. So he he entered into a congress that was very partisan and not getting a whole lot done, obviously when Obama won election that was the arrival of ObamaCare Democrats were able to push that through during the Kevin McCarthy, era and. Obviously that became a big punching bag and a big target for Republicans helping to propel them back into power in twenty ten obviously with the with the young guns program that Kevin McCarthy was an integral part of can you talk about the young guns program who who were and what were they trying to do short. It was Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan, and Eric cantor, of course, and their whole plan was to retake congress for the Republicans. So at the time. The tea party was coming of age ObamaCare had been passed. And what they they created this program. It was interesting because it was these three establishment guys who were going to recruit all of these a lot of cases tea party candidates. They traveled as Scott mentioned before. Mccarthy. Just travels all over the place and sorta works tirelessly they came up with this program where you would have to go through certain levels of commitment and show, you achieve certain things have gotten a certain donor base. You've raised this much money. You've set up this kind of organization, and as you as you reach each level. You would get more money from the the young guns pack, and this was a good example as I mentioned before of how McCarthy was really good at building bridges between in this case. You had the big donor money, which was not gonna look at somebody who's candidates who are sorta in some cases, they might have saw them as tea party out who's in parts of the country that they had never even gone to McCarthy could explain to them. Look, these are the people, and this is why these candidates are actually going to win these races. And the Republicans are going to take back the majority of the house and some of them just seemed like mugshot candidates. You know, especially from the establishment point of view, and they wound up winning all these races winning the house whether the program was instrumental in making that all happen as as McCarthy and Ryan and Kanter says, it was it was a matter of debate. I mean, this was this was a moment a political momentum ObamaCare passed here, you had the party thing happening. And and certainly McCarthy did not start the tea party and was not even really a member of the tea party. But he didn't know how to leverage it as much as as much as he couldn't we have just a little bit clip of video of the young guns. Video they produce to introduce themselves to Republican voters..

"Your world. We don't just talk about the future. We make it happen. Thank you very much. Kevin McCarthy before he went to the house of representatives as the head of the young Republicans and talking about technology is both the recasting of the Republican party is appealing to young people and is use interest in technology to get there. Something that's been consistent and his career in Washington. Well, technology certainly has played a big part in Kevin McCarthy's career he in congress. Specifically, he was one of the sort of early advocates for Silicon Valley. He would be making three to four pilgrimages to Silicon Valley every year in his early years of congress talking to Silicon Valley, CEO's and executives Sheryl Sandberg and Elon Musk not only fundraising, obviously, Silicon Valley is very good for fundraising. But developing those relationships talking about how technology could advance the Republican party in the country as a whole, and what's interesting is with the. The arrival of Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen Kevin McCarthy changes gears, and almost as a complete one eighty in Silicon Valley because conservatives are talking about how social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are bias against conservatives that they are silencing their voices people like Mark meadows and other freedom caucus leaders and Kevin McCarthy is picking up on these cues from Donald Trump and other conservatives and starts to become one of the loudest critics of Silicon Valley in those social media platforms, and it's quite quite a transformation. Our next piece of video is from two thousand five Kevin McCarthy was assembled leader in California. And he was participating in a program. We've done over the years called students and leaders where we bring political leaders in contact with high school students to have them ask questions. Let's listen to what Kevin McCarthy had to say to young people back in. Two thousand five. Got me involved in politics, the California lottery scratch off my first ticket. They have six just like all three in the most money you could win. There was five thousand dollars I scratch off three of them and all three say five thousand and I have never played the game before so back up to the checker. I said I read this did I win. I was one of the first winters in California. So this money this, right? And I invested into the stock market not because as a wizard, but I made some money because in the eighties the market was going up. So I decided if I'm a true believer in what I believe is an individual. I'm a believer. I'm an entrepreneur I would start my own business because I looked like this. I'm nineteen years old if I fail. I'm no worse off. I take a year out of school. I'll go out into the world and the frontier, and I'll create a business. What business I'll go create? I wouldn't do a little research. So I took my money out of the market. I refinance the car I had and I opened probably the biggest business he ever heard of Kevin knows deli. Open little deli at a name, and after myself, I was the owner named after myself, right and great this deli. It teaches me a lot about business teaches me a lot about creating something teaches me a lot about regulations, and what the city looks at and I had about four or five employee's. So it taught me about who this FICO was. And why I was paying this money on people taught me about that every time I hire somebody had actually cost me money is supposed to actually maybe I should get a reward because they took somebody and gave him a job.

And you know, I mean look at look at Devin Nunes, I mean, he doesn't talk to the press anymore. He's he's so angry about it. And also some other Republicans in California feel. Aggrieved McCarthy, he he doesn't he doesn't have that kind of personality. And so it's it's served him. Well, the fact that he can get along with Bill Thomas get along with John bainer get along with Paul Ryan, all these very different people, and they all feel that he's intensely loyal to them. So our first video of him on the house floor occurred in January of two thousand seven right after he came in as a freshman, congressman, let's watch this is a rear she's been radio programming from Thursday. The gentleman is recognized for two minutes. I think the gentlemen from California for yielding, Mr Speaker. I believe congress is a marketplace of ideas at the end of the day the best ideas should win. Unfortunately, the process today that will not happen. Allowing a vote on an alternative minimum wage approaches in America's best interest. Republicans offer a balanced approach to increase the minimum wage and provide offset tax relief for small businesses to take on the increased labor costs for minimum wage hike. The unbalanced approach of the Democrat Bill HR to to slowly increase, the minimum wage is responsible never mind that the basic economic status setting an artificial price floor like the minimum wage could actually raise unemployment Federal Reserve study states that have HR has enacted a million restaurant workers could lose their job. I can tell you as a former small business owner personally. This is a tough decision. I came to congress to work to increase opportunity for all Americans not to harm workers and small businesses. I listened to the debate today, and I listened to the other side as a freshman. If you look at the Republican Bill, it is a compromise. It is a common solution, the minimum wage will be increased. But what else will happen? They'll be greater healthcare for the workers. They'll be tax relief where you can expense off when you're buying business equipment. What happens the workers of America are more competitive in a global economy for the twenty first century, and I asked my colleagues on the other side last week and this floor I listened closely to what our speaker said speaker Pelosi said less work in a spirit of partnership. Not partisanship. Well, I will tell you the Republican Bill is just that it is a partnership that lets the power the idea win at the end of the day. I thank you for the time. Scott long. So we're entering the air of congress flipping back and forth from party control and everyone talks about bipartisanship. But what's the reality of the congress that Kevin McCarthy came into two thousand seven and what it's been like since? Well, let's see those were the Nancy Pelosi years when he arrived, and then it became the banner years. You know, they haven't been terribly bipartisan. I mean, that's that's the reality. And it looks like even in in the Trump era, especially as we are. She government shutdown and out of a government shutdown and back in it. Things haven't changed all that much. So he he entered into a congress that was very partisan and not getting a whole lot done, obviously when Obama won election that was the arrival of ObamaCare Democrats were able to push that through during the Kevin McCarthy, era and. Obviously that became a big punching bag and a big target for Republicans helping to propel them back into power in two thousand ten obviously with the with the young guns program that Kevin McCarthy was an integral part of can you talk about the young guns program who who were they and what were they trying to do short. It was Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan, and Eric cantor, of course, and their whole plan was to retake congress for the Republicans. So at the time. The tea party was coming of age of ObamaCare had passed and what they they created this program. It was interesting because it was these three establishment guys who were going to recruit all of these a lot of cases tea party candidates. They traveled as McCarthy. Just travels all over the place and sort of works tirelessly. They came up with this program where you would have to go through certain levels of commitment and show you achieve certain things. You know, got a certain donor base. You've raise as much money. You've set up this kind of organization, and as you as you reached each level. You would you would get more money from the young guns pack, and this was a good example as I mentioned before of how McCarthy was really good at building bridges between in this case. You had the big donor money, which was not gonna look at somebody's candidates who were sorta in some cases, they met a solemn is tea party in parts of the country that they never even gone to McCarthy could explain to them. Look, these are the people, and this is why these candidates. Are actually going to win these races. As Republicans are gonna take back in the majority of the house and some of them just seemed like mugshot candidates..

Small Modular Houses May Offer Alternatives To Older Adults

"Walk around the campus of the university of southern Indiana. And you may notice a very small house. It's part of an experiment to create houses of six hundred square feet that can be built in days. These little homes could offer housing alternatives for elderly people. Isaiah cyber of member station. W N, I N in Evansville has the story the small six hundred square foot. Modular house is called Minka. The name is derived from a simple and functional style of Japanese home. Bill Thomas is a geriatrician by training. But today, he's overseeing the construction of one of the first Minka prototypes. On this university campus in southwestern Indiana with his elderly patients in mind, this is the Minka revolution. Workers camera away. Putting the final touches on the foundation. No one will live in this prototype house. It's being built for research, but housing officials from Loveland Colorado, a town about fifty miles north of Denver have different plans for houses. I'm really interested in observing the actual construction method because it is different than what we're used to Dorsey McClure is director of real estate development with the Loveland housing authority. It's projects are normally stick built with everything constructed on site. But Mika houses are modular parts of the house like floor, boxes and wall panels are built in a factory and shipped to the site. As for construction think Legos next summer Loveland will break ground on its own meager houses through initially building nine to housing your citizens back one and do this type of housing foodie. Bill is awesome is brilliant. Because that's the knee about that right now. Valerie, Drake, Henry's, North Carolina based housing consultant who works with builders to construct accessible. Homes and is a big fan of modular houses while the idea of modular homes for the elderly isn't unique. It's used for a whole community is intriguing each house costs about seventy five thousand dollars to build and they're constructed quickly very quickly while stick built homes can take months to construct you can build a Minka house in just a few days jerk. Henry thinks this project can help raise awareness about alternatives to the single family home. She notice veer lack of knowledge about housing options in this country. People often choose houses for themselves based on what they've grown up in. But what people know, and what people actually need can be very different. And that's part of the idea behind Minka house. If you have a small high tech, compact livable house, and you have good neighbors close by you can maintain your independence for a lot longer than if you're living alone in a house at the end of a cul de sac Minka developer Bill Thomas. He's them as an alternative to assisted living nursing homes for millions of. Seniors Thomas says and accessible house that works for the elderly can also be perfect for a young twenty something. And that's why one of the first is on a university campus. The house has already caught the attention of students who gawk at the construction as they walk by Thomas is in talks with the university about building a whole community of these mak- houses near campus. He wants to create a small neighborhood students who want an alternative to dorm life living next door to elderly people in the surrounding community. His goal is to provide accessible homes to seniors while bringing generations closer together. One tiny house at a time for NPR news. I'm Jay Seibert in Evansville, Indiana.
