Trump's ambitious infrastructure vision faces Senate GOP roadblock
"President trump faces a clash with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans over the president's desire for a two trillion dollar infrastructure spending bill something he promised during his twenty sixteen campaign what's going on here here to explain is Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill Alex set this up trump earlier this week in Dorsey two trillion dollar infrastructure package of member during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign he blocked his opponent Hillary Clinton formally proposing something like two hundred seventy five billion dollars for sure after trump one thing big old robot that failed to materialize during its first three years in office now he sees an opportunity on on Twitter earlier this week you need to call in dollars but that is facing opposition from his allies in Congress Senate Republicans Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader he's putting the brakes on a package that is emerging from the house he said look we need to wait for me to figure out what we need to do it would first need to address the direct economic fallout from the across the borders the crisis before going on to sort of more tangentially related policy priorities which is what infrastructure is yeah you said the the phrase there is tangentially related I guess Augustus of an infrastructure bill would had some benefit or spur vide some help to the economy during the pandemic well I mean we just are I mean just this week or more than there are more than six billion unemployment claims this is a an all time record on top of that more than three billion last week so in two weeks we'll see ten million claims for unemployment benefits that is the sky high record shattering all previous records so I think the thought or discussion right now this marks the record is that the need is going to be more media more acute than anything that two trillion dollars in infrastructure can address I'm sure instructions nice but we are in a crisis right now people need money to pay the bills pay the rent for groceries is infrastructure projects that said take an introduction you can take a year to two years perhaps longer to get the money on the economy that takes way too long and you know they remember the lessons from the two thousand nine American recovery and reinvestment act passed under president Obama during the last financial crisis that took a long time for those benefits to matriculated in a bombing that a lot of heat for the economy taking so long to respond speak with Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill his pieces called trump's ambitious infrastructure vision faces Senate GOP GOP roadblocks so at this point even though infrastructure might be beneficial to members of Congress coming up for election in November phase four of a relief for stimulus bill it might be more likely at this point well if the question is what's going to be in the face for stimulus bill and Nancy Pelosi the speaker and co chairman of L. conference calls this week saying they want infrastructure would be a major major component of that space for bill now what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that look this this is hello C. subscribing to the attic you over Obama Kerr chief of staff Rahm Emanuel bill number never let a crisis go to waste in other words you can use the crisis to achieve policy goals that you have been able to previously the instructor kind of falls into that category now only people she bills the president this is an opportunity to get a break through something that they've long wanted immediate pressure talks going on well before the coronavirus crisis and so I just think right now we're gonna include top sellers will consider it to be wrong with it because while it there are potentially long term economic to be sure to package it really doesn't address the immediate economic fallout of this coronavirus cases which as I mentioned has created a ten million unemployment claims in two weeks what is our treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin say about all this he seems to be the go between between say the White House and Congress these days well I mean he said in a recent television interview that he's at the grocery store Richard Neal with democratic chairman of the house ways and means committee and eagle east twenty to move forward so he would like to get this done and he doesn't need to have a bit of problem debt Republicans in Congress to do what I eat all you know that during the negotiations of the packaging to truly dollar perhaps two point usually about package we'll see what the dust settles when those negotiations were going on if some Republicans were critical writing we wonder what she'd do to this plane for

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and I'm Audie Cornish. After weeks of stalemate today's failed Senate votes in countless hours of unpaid work by federal workers, a glimmer of progress. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, and minority leader Chuck Schumer met this afternoon to discuss a three-week stopgap Bill that could reopen the government. Meanwhile, President Trump says he's open to a compromise with Democrats if it includes a down payment on border wall. There's no deal, but it's more movement than we've seen in a while. I'm joined by democratic Senator Chris van Hollen? Marilyn welcome to the program. Taty good to be with you. So when we talk about this potential compromise. My first question is about the idea of a down payment. What would that mean how much money would that be? Well, this is a new issue that President Trump just threw into the mix after we'd proceeded on the Senate floor to bring together a bipartisan group of senators to agree to support an amendment bipartisan amendment to reopen the government for three weeks, not ideal but the best option right now and use that time to work out a longer term solution. It could include border security issues that it concluded immigration issues. And that was a good news moment in the United States Senate, just as we were should of leaving the floor there together on a bipartisan basis, we got news that the president would only accept a three week opening of the government. If he got quote, a big down payment on the wall. And it's not clear exactly what he means. But the whole purpose of this. Bipartisan effort was to say, let's take time out. And let's use that time to have a negotiation. We're not gonna have any preconditions other than an understanding. We're gonna try in a very serious way to work all this out. What makes you think in three weeks, you could find areas of compromise that you couldn't find in the last three or four days. Well, when you're trying to negotiate under this effort the president's undertaken to hold the country hostage. It's very very difficult. And one of the reasons is because nobody Republicans or Democrats want to row ward, the tactic of a government shutdown because that will just encourage the president engage in future shutdowns, in fact, one of the areas where there's growing bipartisan consensus is that whatever agreement is ultimately reached includes legislation that would essentially prevent government shutdowns. There are ways to do it. But the the main point here, and this is what we thought was a positive step. This evening was a pretty strong bipartisan group of senators saying, let's take this time out. Let's take a breather. And let's work this out. We do think that we can find a solution. Here. I wanna jump in. Because also a CNN is. Reporting that the White House is also preparing a draft proclamation to declare a national emergency with do you have any recourse to stop such a move? If the White House tried to use that technique to find its money for its border security. Well, the congress doesn't have a viable response to that because it would alternately require legislation and enough votes to overcome a presidential veto. So the effort to address that abuse of power would be through the courts, and the reality is the only crisis that we've got here is the one that President Trump is created by shutting down the government something he said back in December. He'd be proud to do. And it would be quite an abuse of power to call for the use of emergency powers when the only real crisis. Here's the one that was created by the president. But the shutdown I realize for Democrats very much. So it's important that the president be the one to take the blame for the shutdown but voters are looking at both parties and seeing a problem. So what do you say to the thousands of government workers who hear you talking about not rewarding tactics and things like that? And. Who are standing in line at foodbanks. Well, and I was just with many of them yesterday in a food Bank, and Senator Cardin, I visited with a group of small businesses in our state of Maryland. Today. And absolutely you have a situation now where people are being punished federal employees who aren't getting paychecks and others. That is exactly why audi- you had a group of bipartisan senators come today after the other two votes have failed and said, let's have fresh start. Let's have this three week timeout and use that time constructively. And and that's what I hope we will do and Senator McConnell and Senator Schumer are working. I believe to try to accomplish that that's Kris van Holland democratic Senator from Maryland, thank you for speaking with all things considered. Thank you. We're going to bring in now NPR's White House. Reporter I show Roscoe, and she is going to give us the update on what's happening now. I guess you what have you learned from the White House point of view tonight? So the White House is kind of responding to these talks between McConnell and Schumer meeting to kind of break the stalemate. So Trump was asked about their talks. And this is what he had. To say one of the ideas suggested as they open it. They pay sort of a pro rated down payment for the wall. Okay. That idea of pro rated what does that mean? It's not really clear what he meant by pro rated. So you you have the White House saying they they would be open to this three week short-term spending Bill to open the government. But that they would need. They said a large down payment on the wall. Now, President Trump is saying that he could be a pro rated a down payment on the wall. It's not really clear what that means. But the bottom line is there has to be some wall funding for this to go forward with the with the president's support. So there has been some movement here from the White House because in the past the White House had said, they would not do support short-term spending Bill. They wanted a long-term deal and not just kind of kick the can down the road a few weeks. So they seem to be at least willing to kind of. Consider reopening the government, but they still say these are their demands that have to be met. Okay. Seems to be willing to consider a lot of qualifiers does this mean they see a viable path forward? It's not clear whether there is a path forward here. It doesn't seem like both sides are really there yet when it comes to compromise in some ways, the situation seems to be where it has been for the past few weeks. You have the White House still asking for wall money and speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to Trump's comments, and basically she said, it is not reasonable to include money for a wall in a deal to reopen the government, so she's still taking that position in the Democrats have made clear, they're not providing that funding. So, but I guess at least you have the two sides talking to each other. And there does seem to be some pressure building. Now that you had those two bills fail in the Senate. And and that perhaps there could be some middle ground here where the government would be reopened for a short amount of time three weeks, and while some type of compromises worked out where. The Senate votes driving this thaw. It seems like the president is saying that Republicans are really standing together in the Senate, and he kinda held out the vote for his plan as an as an example of them of Republicans standing strong. The problem is the president's plan got fewer votes than the Democrats plan and more Democrats. I mean, more Republicans broke ranks to break to vote for Democrats plan, then the opposite. So this was not really a victory for the White House. And it does make it harder for them to argue that they have the support they need to keep the government Colo closed until they get a wall. And then in addition to all of that, you have all these polls coming out, a basically showing the President Trump's approval is falling and that the public is blaming him for this shutdown. And they're also saying the public is saying that a shutdown is not worth a wall is not worth a government shutdown. That's NPR's White House reporter Asia Roscoe. I should thank you for your reporting. Thank you.

They're just sticking to whatever side of the blast. Helps their narrative. So without aside. I'm not quite sure I understand why Trump is even the Goshi. This is not his job. His job is to sign a Bill congress sense over to congress to write a budget. If Trump sister says I want to law, I want this. I want that I want to go. It doesn't matter. It's the congress Senate Bill if Trump Trump says, you know, what I don't like this. I'm going to be told. Does it if congress overriding this is their job, they need to write a Bill and everybody in congress can't agree to everybody in congress wouldn't agree to a resolution declaring that the sun rose in the east, Michael I mean, obviously that can't happen. And that's why it needs to be pointed out that this is a congress shut this. Down. This is not a shooter shut down below zero. Whoever you wanna say this is congress. This is a government shutdown because they are shutdown themselves. They can't work. They can't even do their own. Well, of course, now that that has has been a major problem, and that's one of the reasons why the the proposed article five constitutional convention would consider among other constitutional amendments one that would simply say if congress does not pass a budget. It does not get paid. It's been what eight thirteen years since we've had a budget and these continuing resolutions, we have got to be forced dragged kicking and screaming to make choices and to make budgets, and then they they should also be forced to do. So except in very limited circumstances within a balanced budget. If you want this much, you got to pay for it and not just stick it on the gross national credit card. But of course, it's much too much fun screwing over our kids and our grandkids. So that's not going to happen, Christina. No, I I agree with you. And and part of the Republican challenge is that many of the things that they stood. For like a budget like maintaining a budget like making those choices are just not very popular anymore. I know wants to lose weight Haagen-Dazs diet. I mean, the public's very unrealistic. That's exactly right. Yeah. That's exactly right. It's it's unrealistic, and it's very difficult. You can't campaign. By telling the truth. We were actually talking about this the other day, you have to say, whatever the people want to hear to get elected. And then people are surprised that they're not being faced with real choices. So some of the single issue voting and the single issue campaigns.

If there's not a breakthrough right now NAFTA NAFTA though his US trade Representative, lighthizer, says he's hopeful for a breakthrough in NAFTA in the next few. Days there talks going on about that as well and Turkey the Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says, that more sanctions have been prepared if the country does not release that pastor it has under house arrest well let's talk. About education now however speaking at the. White House in July US education secretary Betsy DeVos discussed the Trump administration's stance on education in the US the president. Is committed to our nation's students into reforming education in. America's so, that, every child no matter their zip code has access to a high quality education and with kids heading back to, school in coming weeks we're gonna talk now to Arne Duncan he is the former US secretary of education under Barack Obama and the author of. A new book, how schools work he joins us from our Chicago Bureau and a message secretary the first sentence and your book is provocative education runs on allies. What do you mean by that It is provocative but unfortunately it's, too I talk about a, couple of different lies maybe. The toughest one is that we all obviously say. We value our children but in the United States we don't keep, them safe we don't keep them free of. Gun, violence, in, we've raised a generation of teens on mass shootings and gun violence and that simply doesn't happen in other nations Australia Canada Japan the UK I can go right down the list and the fact that we allow so. Many of our children around the nation, to grow up with that kind of. Fear and trauma makes no sense. To me whatsoever another lies that we value our teachers but we. Don't pay them as professionals we don't train them as professionals we don't give them the career ladders and respect that they deserve and then the, big one that's, really focused on right. Now going into these November midterm elections is all of us as parents as citizens saying we value education we care about education my, simple question is how. Many people vote based upon education And the answer, is almost, no one. Does and if we held elected officials at. Every level mayors governors congress Senate the president if we held them accountable for, increasing educational opportunity more access, to pre k. raising high. School graduation rates reducing dropout rates making college more. Accessible and affordable our nation would be so much stronger economy would, be so much stronger and the final thing. I'll, say, is, that should be the ultimate bipartisan are nonpartisan issue we just need more voters across the political spectrum going to the voting booth thinking about what is this candidate gonna do to increase education opportunity in my community then. Mister secretary I want to go back, to something that you said earlier and. That's keeping kids safe and about. An hour from now education secretary Betsy DeVos is going to be. Meeting with the attorney general the homeland security secretary they're hosting meeting about that very issue bolstering school security but their breakout sessions are things like, best practices for, schools active shooter training. For schools and they're calling this new tools to secure our Schools what can. Be done other than having these blue ribbon meetings and then, creating a white paper, on it and then putting it on the shelf, yeah well first of all unfortunately those meetings are basically, a farce because, they say they want to increase. School safety but they refused to talk about God's and so it's just. Absolutely disingenuous and so what we have is not actually a school safety issue what we. Have is an American problem where whether it's schools or malls or movie theaters. Or concerts or ball fields or our churches just the easy availability of guns in. Our nation is, having devastating impact and unfortunately the current administration President Trump is owned by the NRA so I I'm not I'm not hopeful. That that's, going to change anytime soon while you often hear the sort, of the rhetoric they'll. Say well we should hardened schools and that has an, interesting ring to a less hardened schools not quite sure that, means but let me just, ask the question how do you hard and recess How do you harden arrival how you hardened dismissal. Times how you harden a, football game or soccer game and the. Short answer is you simply can't You have a lot of proposals in your book for not just a school safety? But also school reforms paying teachers more and an additional proposals. A bottom line question is how, do you propose to pay for all these things here let me very clear more money is never.
