"And i think we're really is about unity where we all come together. Chicago needs to make space for every a busy week in washington. Dc with a scheduled vote on. What a president. Joe biden's key agenda items infrastructure. Take a look. We should be united. One thing passage of the bipartisan infrastructure framework. We shook hands on. We should cancel and joining us to talk about that and much. More our congressman. Darren lahood a republican from dunlap near peoria and congressman raja krishna more the democrat from schaumburg. Welcome both of you back to chicago tonight. Congressman christopher more the one billion dollar infrastructure negotiations the votes could begin in the senate tomorrow. Republicans are saying. Hold up there still sticking points. What are the sticking points at this point. Well thank you so much. It's nice to be on with congressman lahood who represents my hometown peoria. I think the sticking points Probably boil down to what's going to be included in terms of the types of infrastructure. And then how do you pay for it. But i feel confident that there's a lot of momentum for getting this done and i'm really looking forward to seeing the bipartisan package emerge and quite frankly. My constituents are demanding that such a package as well congressman lahood. Still unresolved as congressman. Chris said is how to pay for this About five hundred. Seventy nine billion in new spending. The two parties are differing on this. How should it be paid for. Well listen i give a lot of credit to the bipartisan group of senators. That have been working on this with President biden and his team. They've been going at it for seven weeks now and they made a lot of progress. And by the way it's great to be on with you and your viewers and along with my friend congressman christopher more thing we have to get infrastructure done and listen. I think we're at. We're kind of in the red zone now. we're not in the end zone by any means but you know there are important things on Higher you're gonna pay for. This is a big part of that and working out those details. But i think i remain optimistic. The negotiators have been making a lot of progress and one trillion dollar bill that fixes up our roads and bridges. Our airports in our rail systems is something that is essential for our country. You don't have to drive far illinois To to worry about your car getting a flat tire we need to invest in infrastructure. And again i. I wanna see the process play out in the senate. That's what they're doing. That's part of legislating. We may need a couple of extra days to do that. But when i'm hopeful and optimistic they can get it done so both in favor of infrastructure spending. But we're do different. How to pay for this congressman christian murthy. What is the revenue source. Or what are the revenue sources. I think just one example. I believe that all corporations should pay taxes. I was a small businessperson. I paid the full thirty five percent corporate income tax rate when it was at that level. I don't think that we should go back to thirty five percent by any stretch. However what i think is that every corporation should pay something there should be a minimum corporate tax rate unfortunately seventy five of the fortune five hundred companies. Don't pay a dime. And so that's one source and then we also we also should work with our global partners to make sure that nobody's able to shift profits overseas and escape american tax laws in the process. But i'm sure there are other places as well. I think that the irs should get resources to enforce tax fairness and our tax laws. Unfortunately a lot of folks don't pay their taxes and are able to dodge. And i think that the irs should have the resources to enforce the laws to make sure they don't get away with them. And as i understand republicans in the senate have been opposed to those sources of revenue congressman. Lahood do you agree with those or their other sources. You would prefer to see well if you look at the framework for the bipartisan bill. That's a trillion dollars in the senate doesn't significantly raise taxes about half of it about four hundred. Fifty billion is leftover covert money. That's a good thing. And then the remaining five hundred fifty to six hundred billion is part of the process that they're going through now but it does not raise the business tax rate on working families and small businesses. Frankly i think coming out of a pin I don't think we should be looking at raising taxes. Let's get the economy back on track before we think about doing that. But you know. The original by plan looked at raising taxes on corporate corporate gain or capital gains making that retroactive looking at changing stepped up basis. Which would affect many of my family owned farmers. Remember ask the number one industry in the state of illinois the the changing of the ten thirty one a like kind exchange Whatever significant significant effect on selling homes and selling a commercial properties. So i think most republicans believe we ought to take a pause and again. I go back to the bipartisan village negotiation in the senate there are some user fees on there but i think if you use the airport you ought to pay if you use the rail system you ought to pay a fee so the user type of mechanism that's in there..

"Daley University, Illinois. Chicago is doing this oral history and It's objective. The Daily family It's coming up at four o'clock. Very interesting insights. The things we may not have ever known about about Richard J and Richard M. Daley. So big deal Plus, Dr Jim Answer. Northwestern will be here as well. We'll get an update on where we stand here as the the nation. Had, actually, interestingly enough, the lowest number of covert positive tests. Over this weekend, you know for a single day of new cases, but that's the experts are saying Well, that doesn't mean I think is the weekend numbers are different because of the numbers of tests and how the lab's working Tim Labs don't report. And blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But you could see there are places that are getting better quickly. And then there's places that are getting worse, faster California being one of them, And then there's Illinois, which seems to be sneaking up a little bit and their people are making noise about making some changes here. And in the meantime, the question is in Washington. If we are going to get shut down or slowed down again, nationally or locally here Are we going to get money? Congressman Raja is with us Roger Krishnamurthy. And he's going to answer that question right now. Are we going to get this thing done today? I hope so. I think we can't wait any longer. I think there's a couple areas of general agreement that they're still several where there's not general agreement and we just got to get to yes. What is your sense about? Yes, Um My sense about it is I think that there are a couple areas where I think we just have to, um, you know, make sure that we understand that the consequences of not doing these things is going further harm the economy, not, you know, extending a federal unemployment benefit bump. Not doing state and local funding. You know, those are going to leave that massive problems for the economy on top of the ones we already have. Right. We're all with you on the argument. That's not the question. Can these people your colleagues in both the House side and the Senate side get together and do some before midnight tonight? Um, I don't see that happening tonight. I I wish I could say yes, I think that, um they still I'll just give you an example. I know that within the Republican caucus in the Senate They're still trying to figure out exactly what they can get enough senators to agree on within their own caucus, let alone you know in the entire Senate, let alone the entire Congress. And so when you have that kind of those kind of factions brewing, that's where you know becomes even stick here in terms of the negotiations. Okay? And they go with Senate goes away tomorrow, right on like they're going to a picnic or something. What's happening? I think the their session adjourns this Friday. I believe, or at least later this week. Yeah, so that's why it's all the more important it can get something done this week, so you don't have to call people back in the session. And take it. Could you extend a session? Um, I don't know. I don't know the answer to that on the Senate side on the house side. Ah, there's a little more. I think you can, but I don't know. I don't know the rule on the Senate side, okay? That's all right. With every congressman wakes up in the morning. Look, Cimarron says Hello, Senator and every senator wakes up. It looks in the mirror and says Hello, Mr President. All right, well, maybe we'll get there some some point But do you have so just in general, If we have a week to work this out roughly Fish there. There's something's gonna have to happen. It's an election year. I find it very hard to believe that Republicans and Democrats can't get together to start just handing out checks to people that they want to vote for them. Well, I think that you've raised a point and you know, right now, I think good. Good. Possum does make good politics and good policy is you've got to keep you guys make sure people can keep food on the table and meet their rent and Take care necessities. And so I think that's something that I wish that the White House would realize instead of drawing kind of arbitrary lines in the stand right now, well way. I don't know what is anything arbitrary in Washington? It's an arbitrary line, but there's always some politics Example example. Steve Mnuchin, you know today talked about, um, you know, we can't You know, extend unemployment benefits or provide certain other compensation because it would massively raised the debt, okay? We're kind of in a situation where, you know, Essentially, we're fighting a war against this insidious, invisible enemy called the Corona virus, And we've gotta win that war and Talking about debt right now, In going from like, you know, 2 304 $100 or $500 extra for these people who you know, can't put food on the table. I am not a good argument today. In my opinion, I okay. Hold on a second conversation. Come right back to Congressman. Actually, Christian Murthy is with us. We'll also get some phone calls in 312 1972 100 on the other side, I would like to ask him. How is it even remotely possible that Jack's not going to fly here again? I'm gonna try one more pass at that. But first, because I think that everybody's negotiating, but first year's Marie Vandeveld, she's.

"With safety as we pursue these vaccines, I wondered, and I invite any Panelists who wants to respond to this. If you could, um, compare this cove in vaccine pursuit with what many Americans are familiar with, which is the sort of the flu vaccine and may be compared in terms of the way. The research Happens around the flu vaccine. Um, the way that gets administered the extent of uptake of the flu vaccine in the population. What is the confidence level around the flu vaccine? How do you compare that? To what you're seeing in surveys about a potential um, Corona virus vaccine And what are some of the practical dimensions of how We would be, um, distributing a covert vaccine. At the same time, we would be distributing the seasonal flu vaccine. So since that's the That's the frame. A lot of Americans have in terms of a vaccine. It comes at him on a regular basis. I wondered if you could for awesome comparisons and an analogy is there on those various. This's a rear see spread radio programming from Tuesday double UCSB from Washington. I could address that something so the vaccine The big uncertainty has to do with what strain of the dominant coming. You have to make best gases about that. But the knowledge to produce the antibody response once you identified, what training's gonna be predominant is well established. By contrast, in this case, we don't know how effective the antibody response is from the nexus. And it's so there's less sense. More uncertainty around this vaccine after traditions are the seasonal flu efforts the same time the amount of the number of people in the trials is extraordinary that the FDA A lot of information about whether Dr J. Bhattacharya from Stanford Astonished that even more than the population, so I think there is more and more uncertain about the way we know that you know what the virus is What we don't know, but it's like you know what? I think you've asked a critically important question because, as you said, in people's minds, these air similares we write a lot of great influenza pandemic we've heard about this parallels. And we expect this to someone be like like influenza, And that's an important conversation. Because they're our darkest doesn't think you just heard some of those thiss figure that we've all seen about flattening the curve that comes from our work 15 years ago influenza Dr Bruce Callen occurred to keep people out of the way. The healthcare's until the vaccine arrived because we had decades of experience making influence vaccines. We knew we could do it here. We could get there. It was just matching the strain of the pandemic. This is different were flattened the curve to keep people out of the health care system While we're working on a vaccine that we won't know will work. And so I think there's a key difference. You asked no questions we can into distribution. They perilously simultaneous used on and these are all very important questions. I think that We all need to be working on. So there is confusion about these to thank you for I have 45 seconds If someone could just speak to this question of confidence in the public Relative to the flu vaccine, which is the percentage uptake if we get on a seasonal basis of that vaccine out as it relates to people's perception of whether it's risky or not risky or risk involved, and not paying it compared to what you're hearing about their view of the vaccine. Just quickly have a segment of the population. The confidence is not about how well it performs, and we're there's a lot of work has been done to improve the performance of that vaccine and that people don't get it is probably because of that, and not because of any concern to have about a safety program. Thank you, Mr Chairman. I yield back Thank you so much. I really appreciate everybody who participated in today's hearing. Especially the Panelists. Thank you for A grueling session of question and answers on DH. I also want to just include by saying that you know, we all want a vaccine as soon as possible. I think that goes without saying, and we want to expedite the creation of a safe and effective vaccine. But the only way to do that on I think there's relative unanimity on this particular point. As I heard from everyone on this panel is that We should not cut corners of the FDA. Perhaps there might be some efforts to expedite what we do in the manufacturing. Vaccines. Perhaps we think about the economics and the prioritization of delivery of the vaccine Congressman Raja Christian Murthy. All tediously at the creation of such a vaccine, But we must not cut quarters and do anything that would hurt or harm the conclusion that whatever the FDA ended up approving is safe and effective. And so I hope that coming out of this hearing, we proceed based on those To conclusions. Tio made sure that the FDA does its job. Commissioner Han answers our letter that he assures us that he will continue to maintain the independence of the FDA that we will have 30,000 participants at any stage three. Human trials and that the verb pack be engaged fully in the deliberations surrounding a covert 19 vaccine with that, I'd like to thank you all for participating on DH. This session is adjourned. Thank you. Congressman Christian Marty is a Democrat from Illinois and chairs the House Oversight and Reform subcommittee that held today's hearing.

"Two thousand nineteen today the manhattan district attorney subpoenas eight years of trump's tax returns a house committee investigates the transportation secretary mnuchin ties to epstein and milo was snubbed by the stories i'm your host AG and with me today jordan coburn hello and mandy reader hello welcome wow seattle was awesome mm-hmm i i know we talked about this on yesterday's beans but i'm still it's all still thinking in on some everybody was really amazing weekend yep and we're joined today by my mandate who was on stage with us as seattle because julia is on a little bit of a vacation so she is taken some self care treat yourself time so oh we support that hang on seattle yes that's just so neat there so anyway not is what's going on today those you heard the intro there's a lot of news and i don't know how how was your night did you get enough rest i t i slept for twelve hours last night yeah so fucking tired i haven't showered jordan three days which is irrelevant i guess to do today but i'm exhausted yeah i was pretty tired i slept really well same yeah that was that was a nice trip i really i i'm i may have had one too many seattle light beers they were very good though and and i didn't get to try a seattle dog i'm sorry but i i meant to but i think we just ran out of time yeah they're they're serious about those dogs they score the hotdogs talks oh like some fancy michelin star restaurant there fucking score in it dude when they make a little preemptive cuts yeah well they feel like they're juicier uh-huh yeah yeah cream cheese dot i'd never seen before and that was like really hard core delicious at two o'clock in the morning yes it was and mayo mayo the other toppings i think are negotiable but i think the cream she is the essence he didn't give me a choice he was like you're going to like it i did i remember that we had no choice anyway that you know superfund times thanks for everyone who to everyone came out to that we really really enjoyed meeting you so we do have a lot of news to get to so let's hit the hot notes hot notes so the big story today is the manhattan district attorney's office led by sivan's in his subpoena of trump's tax returns is going down and as we know the manhattan d a has been investigating the hush money payments made by michael cohen who was reimbursed by the trump organization innovation possibly illegally and just weeks after coincide to proffer deal with the DA they're now looking into whether any new york state laws have been broken into payment the repayment of cohen win by the trump organization and if that violates business falsification record laws you know and this is big news because it is now we can say that the president is under investigation for potential felony crimes in the state of new york and could be subject to an indictment and unlike the broader fight to get the president's tax returns and congress this is a grand jury subpoena so it's it's like a more official proceeding and it's a secret proceeding so if musar does comply the records will not become public we will but i expect trump to try to block this which would move it into the state courts this doesn't go up to the federal court court system so it wouldn't get a chance to go to the supreme court because this is more of a traditional investigation under the secrecy of the grand jury could move a lot faster than the broader congressional subpoenas pena's to get the documents from cars so the taxes will be turned over and the president is not protected from indictment by a district attorney's office and tips james runs all those offices so so i think that this is you know you a lot of people are tweeting sivan's is a dirtbag because he got there was a donation made to his campaign by somebody who was friends with ibaka and don jr. and when they were about to be indicted for fraud when they would like lie lie about how many condos they'd sold in i think so it might have been so to get people to buy them when they had sold any do you remember that case inflating their their desirability yes and that's falsification of business records but charges weren't brought in that case and people seem to connect that to the fact that somebody associated with the trump organization had made a large donation to his campaign but we just want everybody keep in mind that this is these artists james district attorney's offices and so you know it's different and it's not going to go up to scotus and it's a grand jury subpoena so it's it's got more teeth than the broader congressional because when you know when the congress this guy is trying to get them as ours tax information it's not a legitimate legal argument but but trump can argue that they would be it would be hurtful hurtful to him harmful to him and his organization of his if his financial documents were to be leaked which is more likely let's face it if the congress has it then it would be if the grand jury got him can you really say when you say him and his organization you're talking to trump war great can you really say that he would care at all then if he's supposed to be so far removed from it the abbott he never divested and right and so that that that there's the rub in the argument itself to be like no i'm not vested from my business nisa and therefore it would be harmful to me when the norm is that you would divest it seems like either way he would have to incriminate himself in some way and maybe incriminate is wrong on word because unfortunately he probably wouldn't get charged anything right but he's doing something wrong and either right ethically yeah ethically it's wrong when could possibly happen if he wasn't dated by a state DA that i don't know i don't think estate DA or or a a state attorneys general offices ever indicted a sitting president president i could be wrong on that but not at least in my lifetime that i know about but who i don't know part of me wonders if if they actually moved to indict him that would sort of be almost a fourth the theatrics of it kind of thing otherwise i would think they would just settle if it's something that has to to do with with like money right because this would be a wait oh no you'd have legal because it's a criminal he's gonna say criminal case even though if it were a civil lawsuit yeah he's just about money still criminal yeah so you can't yeah because they're not held back by the same memo that the oil see right yup absolutely yeah the the office legal counsel memo at the department of justice is only overseas the federal courts and these are state courts so and even like i said if trump tries to block lock it somehow it's not going to be under bars federal court so the DOJ might file an amicus brief but it would it it's that's a federal court and this this is a state court and and new york state courts packed with liberals so can you pardon himself not from a state crime got an if get on like tax evasion or something which at this point i just assume all white collar people could be brought up on like tax evasion charges no but you're right you're absolutely right this there's nothing governing them from uh stopping them from indicting there are rumors out there that trump could make a deal to hand because you can do this they did it with agnew i don't know if it was the US i think it was the US attorney's office and not a state court though and they had made a deal with agnew where you give plus your resignation we won't indict u and that i like that but then of course he would never face charges right also if they didn't go through with an indictment he would be missing out on a huge personal opportunity to just beg for supporting love is insane base and i feel like he wouldn't wanna pass that up no now at the sympathy vote is there yeah yeah also today we're learning that the house oversight committee led by cummings launched an investigation into trump's transportation secretary secretary and moscow mitch's wife elaine chao into whether she's using her office to benefit herself and her family spoiler alert she is this investigation comes as rabin's this investigation comes on the tail of a series of public reports alleging that chow used her position in the trump administration to boost her dad's shipping company called foremost comings and krishna christian murthy penned a letter to chow requesting documents saying quote the committee is examining your misstatements of fact your actions that may may have benefited the company in which you continue to hold shares and your compliance with ethics and financial disclosure requirements her dad's company has received hundreds of millions in loans from a chinese bank and house public appearances and plans to travel to china to meet with government officials with her dad since becoming the transportation secretary are what tipped off the house downs so child has until september thirtieth to comply when i think about transportation i don't think boats i'm thinking more like cars trains public transit i don't i don't think i have a very camilli understanding of like what she oversees exactly oh yeah what what what all is under the department of transportation we right that's commerce but what if he but nixon hated the department of commerce secretary because he opposed the vietnam war could have ended up in in transportation but yeah i think that that's more in international national and commerce what you're talking about i i'll have to look it up and read exactly what you know is in the purview of her control yeah because transportation transportation to me seems like it's something that relates to like citizens within the US that's what i think of when i think of transportation anything else seems like it would be more trade but yeah but even if you know even if her dad's company wasn't falling underneath the purview of what the transportation secretary overseas using your position the government to benefit your frail right that's true and that is there are domestic emoluments yeah we found out so that was a correction from yesterday or from the weekend it's i think like someone can be penalized for domestic gains they're getting yes so there are foreign emoluments and domestic arrangements i thought i heard that on the TV once is but i don't know who to trust anymore i'm glad i'm glad that that's true yeah correctness if we're wrong hit up corrections at what is it daily beans pod dot com and go to the contact section and select corrections send him to us and we'll make sure we correct on muller she wrote on a weekly basis so yeah her dad's company.

"Oh yeah hunt down become better or bitter <hes> yeah. I mean yeah again. I believe in immortality so i'm doing my best so this keeps getting bumped up. We wanna give i wanna bump the people i i want you to live forever. Wherever thank you so that we can live forever together. I ask people this question. Hey of you knew you could live forever in the people that you love could live forever. Why why would you want to die no because you just know better and better other than in. We've talked about this before like you said the if you had the pro perspective of the universe right. Would you get bored. Like have you seen remember the highlander games when you are not highlander games highlander the movie. I've never seen it well. The the idea is you know there's these immortal beings and they only die if you chopped their head off so there was like a few of them right and live forever right he they've lived for thousands of years so what got us because may change your perspective because what happens in movies they they you know they they see everyone. They've loved ever they di- they see you know so they've lived through these things that are kind of horrible experiences for you to live in one lifetime yet they're living it over and over wives dying multiple multiple children dying and it kind of kind of looks like they become callous to that it would it looks like a sucks. They paint the picture that it sucks yeah. I can definitely see that. You need to see that movie. Let's kind of like the dystopia point of view it is whereas my view would be is that i think that's bumped yeah. They're getting. We're all on this. The never ending journey to reach immortality so if i can share that and i can help those who are ready accomplish that immortality like my son like my <hes> the people that i love and care about most of their open and receptive to it than yeah all right cool cool and then hey f- if i guess it's the same you know i believe that if noah died he was because he wanted to do i agree yeah yeah and it's his you know we're all in our own individual journey path and ultimately you can kind of try to give him the best knol share the knowledge that you've got and i think think about like speeding up his how he's going to get to where he where you're at faster you know each generation shortens that and then ultimately at the end of the day we all have that free free free will choice tonight. We want with our life. Either you know whatever road i it's fascinating. It really is freaking mind blowing it. Is i mean 'cause. I don't think any of this stuff. It all found me. I didn't find it. I i feel that same way yeah. It's something was in you. That activated faded and i think it's in all people just think some people either choose to have it. Allow it to be activated or you know like books will come to you or people come to you or information comes to you but you know how do you were you conscious of time when you were resisting that or were you even aware of. I think it was just ignorance like extinct grove which could have been sitting on the counter for your whole life right. I mean well man when you say that something was actually yeah <hes> the god within me was activated activated what activated it right. <hes> pain the experience the experiences that i had yeah if it weren't for the pain that i wouldn't. I might not have been so open to consuming cannabis or mushrooms but it was through those experiences experiences that it was activated yeah because before i was i was trying to find spiritual purpose through <hes> superficial means to me. Religion is very superficial. It is is a lot of people that can quote the bible but they don't live a righteous life in to me. That's you're just a hypocrite whereas myself like i don't. I don't care to go. I don't care to hey. I'm right. You're wrong long. <hes> mine's the only way in fact hey i'm. I believe i have humility enough that if jesus comes floating down out of the sky. I'm the first one one there to say hey man. I'm really sorry yeah. I heard you really forgiving so sorry. I didn't believe in you but man i i got your back one hundred percents <hes> refer buffer right now. That makes no sense to me but i'm open enough that hey if there's a better way that comes along and if you share that better way with me than oh yeah yeah man. I'm open but i mean christian. Murthy said that the best is <hes>. When you define yourself as anything you cut yourself off from everything. I'm an american. I'm a man man. I'm a christian whatever those definitions you offer everything listen where the hell i came from the unaware the hellum going i i could care less <hes> 'cause all the matters is the here now right. That's it. I'm having an experience across from one of my best friends that say you. We know all that other shit is irrelevant yeah and then all the other stuff. Hey how can i be. The highest level of emotions are love compassion gratitude so i'm like how can i develop those were there.

Something brian tracy said you know that it never occurs to some people that they get to decide. It didn't occur to me for a long time right. I thought it was kind.

"Teams completed, the most difficult tasks anyone will ever have to do. And that is notifying the next of kin. So today we all grieve, Bobby Doerr. Authorities know do anyone in the pressure who the shooters. Yes. So his name has finally come out during the first initial press conferences, authorities were being cagey about it, but they have identified him as Dwayne Craddock, and we understand that he had been employed by the city for about fifteen years as an engineer, we still don't know exactly why he did this. So when it comes to motive we don't know anything about that. But he did have a badge and was able to so like a city issued battles badge was able to gain access into the building, just as he would any other. Day he would come to work. But so his name has has is now out there. But in terms of what motivated him to, to carry out this spree is still a huge question. Mark here much Virginia Beach like today, the morning after this this terrible event. You know it's incredibly somber everyone. I've talked to just seems absolutely horror stricken, adding to it is sort of a gloomy, rainy day. Here you go to delis you go to corner stores. You know you go to, you know, big box retail stores, and everyone is talking about this. It really has has shaken this community and, and the families who live here really to their core. Yeah. And today, of course, they'll be a process, I guess of public morals and, and people trying to control each other. Yeah. I mean, there's a number of memorials planned now that we know the victims named some of those families are making appropriate preparations and, you know. Yesterday, the mayor here, Bobby Dyer called the shooting. You know, the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach. And I think that really underscores just how rattled both top public officials, and this whole community is right now after the shooting and peers, Bobby Allen speaking with us from Virginia Beach, Virginia. Bobby, thanks so much for being with us. Thank scott. Robert Muller Shane congress, your move special counsel announced his resignation this week and shed if we had had confidence at the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, so and added the constitution requires a process other than the criminal Justice issue to formally accuse sitting president of wrongdoing, we are not a congressman Roger Krishnamurth -i democrat from Illinois, on both the house committee oversight and reform and intelligence committees. Congressman, thanks so much for being back with this. Scott glad to be back did what Mr. say this week, move you any closure calling for impeachment investigation. Will. Thank you for the question. I think I'm probably where my constituents are right now, which is on the one hand, they feel that the president's conduct disturbing. And indeed, you could say impeachable. But on the other hand, it's not convicting in the sense that they feel that, if it were to proceed right now, the Senate would clear him and he could really claim totally honoration. So what that leaves us to do our homework right now? They want us to do our homework. They want us to continue investigations and pressed to assemble the evidence that the country move toward a consensus on what to do with him right now. Can Democrats accuse Republicans of, of refusing to live up to their oversight responsibilities because they don't want to end tag is what they take to be their political base. If Democrats don't bring up impeachment because the poll numbers are discouraging because they think they'd lose the vote in the Senate isn't there, a constitutional responsibility to. I think there's absolutely constitutional responsibility, right now to rake through obstructionism put up by the president continued the investigation that were pursuing right now, just as an example, you know, within the intelligence committee and the oversight committee were pressing for the financial records of the president, deutchebanks, and accounting firm to figure out, you know what are his ties to the Russian this material that I don't think that the Muller team necessarily pursued because the president had put a red line around it. And, and I think that Muller team based on what we can tell decided not to cross that red line. So this is potentially new material that hopefully would move some independent minded folks on the other side, depending on what the results are, but at the end of the day, just can't be about party about our country and what's best for our country. I do believe. The president has done some very bad things. And now we have to hold them accountable. How I I mean doesn't the constitution provide the instrument for holding him accountable, right in front. You. Absolutely. But on the other hand, you know, basically going toward an impeachment process without making sure that we have done our homework and have the case to win the approval of the American people. And to get a conviction in the Senate. A may not be the best course. We have half a minute left forgive. You and I always use baseball analogies. Are you essentially saying we're not going to begin the game until we know we can win it. I think what I'm saying is, we have to make sure that we go down the path, where we can actually achieve intended result. And right now going into the impeachment process without having done. Our homework is not what my constituents want. And I think that it's not necessarily the best course Representative Roger Christian Murthy of Illinois. Thanks so much for being back with us.

"While both teams are in town. I I will concede that the crowd wasn't there last night. So that part of my argument was wrong perhaps that they wouldn't have made as much concession. So you've got me there. But it's still not a good idea. Okay. Well, I'm glad I was able to persuade you. Well, I mean, you know, you still change your pitching rotation all of that stuff. And I believe my response to that argument yesterday was visiting a manager. What do I do maybe you'll manage? I don't know if you have your tickets yet to see Thomas Jefferson, but I'm going to be on stage at the classic cinemas Tivoli theatre with the third president of the United States may eighteenth. And I do hope you've come. This is my civics push away. It'll be a really fun enjoyable funny. Our so where I come on stage with Thomas, Jefferson we chat, and then you get to ask questions to if you ever thought boy, I'd sure like to know what the founding fathers think about this legalize marijuana having a graduated income tax legalizing sports betting all the things we're going to do here in Illinois. I wonder what Thomas Jefferson was say about that. You get a chance to find out to say nothing of what he thought about owning slaves or whatever the historical question may be of interest to you. Tickets are available a WGN radio dot com slash Jefferson. WGN radio dot com slash Jefferson. Do get a whole bunch of tickets right now. I wonder what he thinks about giving a bunch of money and concessions to these great big developers to build something in Lincoln yards. Christian MacQuarie is an editorial writer and columnist. If the Chicago Tribune longtime member of our mincing rascals at least once upon a time. She broke up with us, then she found other things to do. Hi, kristen. Are you speaking in like, the Thomas Jefferson vernacular? No that was me just getting all wound up. Okay. No. Are you? I'm great. How are you? Good. I'm surprised I guess I'm not surprised. But this whole Lincoln yards thing to me at first seemed just kind of wonky for the people that even know what a tax increments financing district is and low behold everybody seems to get their head around it. We're going to give a couple billion dollars in tax concessions to a developer who is going to build something that's going to cost around six billion dollars is the issue about this development on the northwest side that we shouldn't be doing that at all. Or is it the size of the development? What's got you bugged in your column today? Bugged is that piston strokes that the vehicle that they wanna use to spur economic development. Their original intent was for blighted areas. The kiss district allows developers to come in and have their property taxes or assessments, basically frozen for twenty three years, and whatever they spend as the value of the property growth. Whatever is owed gets pumped back into the tickets or so basically, they get their property assessments frozen. And then whatever money they put into their own project increases its own value. So that's money that is lost to school districts, and libraries and everyone else who would normally get to get to appreciate the value of the growth in that property say to that Kristen I mean, I understand I understand why tiff districts at least in on paper exist, and you're right to help pump private dollars into areas the won't otherwise go. But if you have these concessions than makes more tractive that area was going to be developed, no matter what that's prime commercial real estate. Eight. So why did we give it to them? I mean, that's that's the that's the big question. They they will say that in this case, they are going to invest money in everyday infrastructure that that the public is going to get to us three new bridges over the Chicago river are huge redesign of of an intersection that's really clogged over there. So it's not like they are just going to be buying planters to make their own little property. Look pretty they are going to do some massive infrastructure that otherwise tax payers would have to bear my problem with that is that we're still talking about very specific sides of the city, and and restraining tax dollars that would go to CPS which affects the south side, and my side of the city and my property tax. I'm never going to use these intersections. I'll probably never even say Lincoln yards. What they are going to get a huge property tax break along with this other development that is going to spread the tax burden around to the rest of Chicago. I just think it's an old economic development tool that gets abused. And to me this is. An example of that. When we did the missing rascals. Justin Kaufman was in today. And he said that it was almost a density issue for him. It's going to too much alter the way people live in that part of the city. It's just too much. There is is that a concern of yours or no. It is. I mean, it doesn't make sense to me to allow so much more density and to justify it by unclogging intersections that are going to be even worse. Once you add all that density. So I mean, there was there was talk at one point of having like a public park and more open space, and they never really came around on that issue. So yeah, it's it's it's already a dentist area. And so you're gonna make it more dense and then throw everybody bone by redoing some of the roadways that encourages more traffic. It just doesn't make sense. We'll they are there on the Hartford couple of hundred million dollars. It's not like they're not putting they don't have some skin in the game that we would all benefit from. Right. Well, if you live on the north side, I suppose they do have get into game. But they're not going to walk away from this project. This is probably one of the most attractive piece of real estate possibly in the country, maybe in the top twenty. And so the idea that we have to throw so much. We're talking about like that nine hundred million dollars in. Tax incentives to accompany that it's going to make a ton of money off of this project. I just don't know that it that they really ever got around to completely justifying it respond to this. This is a private developer who wants to put people to work build up an area that's sitting vacant, and they are putting millions and billions of dollars of their own money into this private investment that of course, needs some sort of public assistance. If you build a football stadium, they'll build you. You're on ramps. So that land is just sitting there. Kristen what's why should we? Not encourage this kind of private investment, we we should encourage private investment. I'm saying that the natural marketplace that debt land would be purchased and bought and developed why do we have to to entice private development? Give them a tip district. That's gonna freeze their property taxes for the next twenty three years. It's not blighted. Go back to regional intent of the law. We're not talking about the south side or the old steelworks plant. That needs redevelopment. We're talking about some of the most hipster attractive real estate in the in the city, or are you going to take back the Schaumburg yards thing that you put in your column? No, actually, I stole that from an alderman Ostermann. So that doesn't even belong to me. That's his, but there is some criticism that there it just doesn't have a lot of character development. But really, I'm only caring about the the bottom line these planned developments always have a planned feel to them, and it gave might be slick awesome. I mean, because of course. It is right. I mean the river walk that they're developing out my window looks really slick, but also Disney land would approve of the sort of stuff. They're laying down there. And that's just the way it goes. So I don't know what to make of the aesthetics, right? If it's going to look new and coordinated I don't know that we need to bristle at that. Not necessarily. I mean, you must also like the streets of Woodfield like, you know, kind of manufactured town home looking development in the middle of a bunch of expressways. And I I honestly I don't I don't care so much about how it looks. Yeah. I just think Justice strikes. A one tent delighted property they have been buying property. They've been buying property since maybe like twenty fifteen or twenty fourteen at the site. So this is this has been a long term plan for showing bay last question. Are we having this conversation if they hadn't exercise that if they weren't using it as a tiff district? I wouldn't care then. Comes to the schools and everybody else right noodle live there. So it's not your problem. Right. And don't argue that this is not tax dollars. It's their own money that they get to reinvest in the project, but if the money that would otherwise go to taxing bodies that because it isn't the burden gets spread around to to the rest of the city. We've invited them to join us on the show. I hope they can next week. I thing I'll ask them to respond to some of the things you said, Kristen, it's always a pleasure to hear you in review. We'll thank you. Thanks for having me on. And I look forward to sterling as respond hopefully going to come up on Monday Tuesday Wednesday sometime next week.
