"Lowering the classic prescription drugs and the president has talked about that. There's an effort going on in this committee, and in the house, we know that the cost of Madison, skyrocketed, we pay far more than others around the world for prescription drugs. What I'm worried about is in the middle of this negotiation. And this, this is beige. Abu all over again. We've got a situation where like Medicare Part deep negotiations, which were meant to bring down prices. The pharmaceutical industry used there have to be able to put a van undergo Asian in the middle of that Bill Hippocratic. Senator Debbie stabber now. So now in the middle of this effort, we see the brand name drug companies, one of the biggest vocal supporters of this agreement, and then we look more closely, and we see what I certainly as give. Away to the drug companies in the middle of this agreement that these provisions stop competitors. From getting cheaper generic drugs onto the market. I've seen the argument about how we should this language is supposed to reduce so-called foreign freeloaders from other countries. In other words, other countries with that have a patent that is less supposedly freeloading off of us. But I would say in Canada, where they have an eight year time line rather than the tenure in this veil, the cost of their medicine is about forty percent less than ours for the same medication. So I think if in order to protect the industry, we're actually making it harder in higher costs and candidate. That's not in the best interests of Americans that want very much to have the opportunity to lower prices and have more generic competition. So is any of the language. This bail to get us to a point of lower prices, number one. And Secondly, are you planning to request the saying language as part of your negotiations with the European Union Japan, the UK we're going to see this effort going on all over the world to protect the patents and the prices for these drug companies? So, so thank you Senate. I think that's a, that's a really excellent question. So let me take a step back and say, so, where are we says the beginning of our having tried to go one of our jackets have been to have other countries adopted? I may have to run over just a second of the chairman. Other countries. Adopt our electoral property laws that is that that's been the objective in every fast track. Trade promotion authority. It goes back to at least eighteen eighty eight when the United States. Join the Paris convention. This has been our objective. It's negotiating objective that this congress pass when they set it out for us. So what we do then is we go around, and we try to have other countries adopt our, our rules in ObamaCare. The congress passed a twelve year data protection for biologics right, twelve years. That's what you pass. That's what was signed into law. And that's what we have in the United States. What we, we went out and said, okay, we should have the same standards like we do and everything else. Right. That's what we do. That's what objective that's the congress told us to do what we compromise on ten years. Okay. So, so what we have in here is ten years. Two years less in the states. And this is really important point. There are no provisions in this agreement that will change you as laws with respect to pharmaceutical Elway that let me, excuse me, just in the interest of time, we take your saying it won't change. But also staffs. No, I'm changing in the future. You're putting into a trade agreement and I can't imagine this won't be used as a reason coming back to say that we can't address lowest prices, we've had a lot of discussion this committee district committee important discussions about patent law. And what is happening and we forms that need to be made in. You're lacking in something that I believe is going to stop us from doing what could be done to lower prices. So on that point, I completely agree with you. What we did is follow our law. We didn't change US law at all. And to the extent, a member thinks anything in your wills. Stop you or slow you up from changing laws these laws that we have to correct that I don't believe it does. But I will. Correct it in a way that you Senator say you've acted that problem. We cannot be vision, where if the United States Congress decides on changing these rules in some way because you think it's good for drug about the price done, or for the other reason, if you change those, we should not be in a position where where that's difficult or precluded by this agreement recording with you, and I think I have to satisfy you on that point, and I believe I will. So Mr. investor, how are your negotiations going with the house and the speaker? On the US MCA. And when do you expect the administration will send us that that agreement to begin voting on Republican Senator, John Cornyn? Thank you. Thanks, so I have dealt as as members here. Now, I've dealt from the beginning with Democrats as much as Republicans and I have dealt with the leadership in the congress. Consistently during the course of this before. But during the course of this congress, and the speaker has been as been completely fair and above board. And I think instructive in the way we've done it. She's put together a group of people, my, my point was, I know that generally, what people want and I know what we can do. I just need to get that. I can sit down there and on the other side, it'll say, yes, this is enough and that's precisely what it is. And the speaker sympathetic to that. And she has she has facilitated that, and I think we're making progress and that in my hope is that over the course of the next couple of weeks, we can make substantial progress. So, so it's I believe we're on track. I think we're making progress and, and I'm hopeful on that score. And the speaker has been absolutely as far as I'm concerned. Exactly, as you would hope she would be. Well, I'm optimistic that we'll be able to vote on that both in the house and the Senate and get it get it done in behind us. I think that would provide a lot of reassurance. Two. The US economy, and I think it would be something very much in our national interest thinking about China now, I know the administration's position, I think our conversations privately about TPP and multilateral trade agreements. You and the president had both indicated your preference for you to lateral agreements. But as I think about the challenge of China, it seems to me that we need our friends and allies to work with us to counter China and to get China in a better place. I frankly am going to be amazed. If you're able to get them to make structural changes. I hope you are, but obviously, their biggest concern as an authoritarian countries about maintaining power, and there seems to be slipping and some of the supply chain moving out of China and other countries like Taiwan Vietnamese, and I have to think they must be a little bit concerned about that and want some resolution but can you tell me whether? You think it's appropriate at some point to revisit the TPP as a way to counterbalance China certainly such a large country with such a large population. It seems to me that we would do better working with our friends and allies than a unilateral agreement. Thank you. First of all, I certainly agree that we're better off working with our allies and we have, and we have a group, we call trilateral group, which is Mike counterparts in Japan and Europe as well as the United States. The three of us get together. We've had eight meetings already we put out communiques and we worked together closely on exactly this notion. Exactly this problem, and that the whole purpose of it is to figure out rules and the like to coordinate with respect to dealing with China. So that is something that's going on. I totally agree with you. I, I don't know quite why we don't get the attention for this group. It gets attention. When we have the meeting that everybody says, you're not dealing with your allies. In the fact is, I deal with is very closely on this, and they're also, our, our state on enterprise, non-market economy, provision in the US MCA for the first time, serious provision in there to deal with this with his giant. So I think we're doing lot with our allies. So that's number one number two on the issue. Two of the TPP you've heard me say before I never won. I think it's a bad agreement you literally could have a car that was made forty five percent and be at Phnom and fifty five percent and China's sold in the United States with no duties, it would qualify to me, it would be crazy. It'd be the just an example. It'd be the end of a lot of our manufacturing. I think it was a very bad agreement. It didn't deal with currency properly. It didn't deal with a lot of things, I think it was a mistake by also don't buy the idea that, that, that we were going to sell out, in circle China in this in this, what would have been a twelve person group if we had joined it, because China would have joined it. So it would have been like the WTO so that the geopolitical logic didn't make any sense. It was not agreement. And then the final thing I like to say is really there's a Levin countries in this group we have FTA's right now which will modernize more, we have TA's was six of leaves just five of the five that are not covered. Ninety five percent of the GDP is Japan and we're trying to do with the with Japan with respect to the others. The next biggest ones are like Vietnam, which has three hundred billion dollars worth of GDP as opposed to five twelve dollars in Japan. Now, you could say should you make these other ones? And the answer is probably yes. And we probably will get to that. But I don't think it matters, for example, whether we do deal with Brunei or places like that. So I think the president strategy of dealing individually with these people is a far better approach, and it's one that leaves you the flexibility of being able to number one keep China out of that agreement. And number two, enforce it with respect to that country. So I, I like where we are. And I think joining the TPP would be mistake. Well, thank you. Mr Chairman, I, I actually agree with my call from Texas on this one point in the notion that. I want to ask you about weed. I wanna ask you about intellectual property. I wanna ask you about enforcement, but I will say that my colleague is pointing out when you can get everybody else to join you and a rejoinder on something like intellectual property, that could be very helpful to awesome. So I think I, I wish we would I hope we can do more of that, if I could Washington is one of the most trade dependent states in the nation. I think we have seventy seven billion in exports in twenty seventeen and we help support over three hundred thousand jobs, in and outside of our state for trade, very important, and your hard work on all of my colleagues have brought up the enforcement issue this, we worked on getting money into the customs Bill to do more trade enforcement..

"Week. Thank you, everybody. Thank you. Senator Chuck Schumer democrat from New York. The minority leader joined by other members of the Senate, Democratic leadership, dick Durbin, Patty Murray. So they're Debbie stabber now live from Capitol Hill. Coming up at about. Perhaps in ten or fifteen minutes as soon as the house is finished voting. The house had been astray Shen committee is holding a hearing about election at security testifying will be commissioners of the election assistance commission when naked underway. We'll take you there live on C span radio until then a little bit more from this morning's Washington journal we were talking with delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton democrat, from the district of Columbia. She is a senior member on the transportation and infrastructure committee. And she was talking about a proposed two trillion dollar infrastructure spending Bill and particularly how to pay for it. Go. Hi, what's next Matthew? Good morning. Good morning. So I just wanted to comment on in Ohio, a lot of the roads, they're always going always going up with construction, and we definitely need more. We need more funding for the roads from, from the federal government, because there's been so much instruction going on the interstates and it's been going on for years and years. I just think that the president needs to spend more time attacking members at congress and get to work on what he was talking about on a campaign, but I definitely thought money. Money. His guide to ban you know that, you know, this gets done, and it's just really important that we get the roads funding for these rose that I think kind of like you were talking about the toll roads. We have to get the, the fees higher for those so that you can go towards that funding. So that's my comment for the day. That's that'd be say when he sees construction going on. That's probably paid for by the state increase in its own user fee. So the states have not been able to wait, but the states can't get to where this caller wants us to get if the federal government doesn't ship into do its part, the fact that the states have taken the leadership on rose span from one one part of the country to the other tells you every way about how far behind the congress and the federal government are to where the states want us to be about. Fifteen minutes left with delegates Eleanor Holmes Norton. Democrats representing Washington D C region with us on phone lines as our viewers found regionally. If you're in eastern or central time zone, it's two two seven four eight eight thousand if you're in the mountain or Pacific time zones, two to seven point eight thousand and one that last caller brought up President Trump. This story from politico this morning, getting a lot of attention. Pelosi clashing with fellow Democrats in closed-door debate on impeachment. Politico reporting Nancy Pelosi of rebuffing calls for impeachment by some of her fellow senior members. This is not about politics. It's about what's best for the American people. I wonder where you stand on the issue of impeachment of the president. Is that Facebook piece on this as a constitutional lawyer and law professor before coming to congress? And if you look at what impeachment is, and I'm afraid that most of us, don't recognize what the process is impeachment. Requires essentially an indictment. By the house. He's doesn't occur. Until the Senate tries, the case Senate is controlled by Republicans. I believe that our speaker Nancy Pelosi is resisting calls for impeachment because she. History not too long ago, we tried impeachment within the lifespan of most of your viewers. And yes, we got as far as the indictment and we did not convict. To go. Halfway increases the popularity or did at that time of President Clinton and increases the popularity of the president in power. So if the whole point of impeachment is to get rid of impeachment is to get rid of a president that doesn't do it. So we've got to do what speaker Pelosi is doing think this entire process through. Why do you want it? You want it because you want this president out of office will impeachment do it. There has never been a president thrown out of office because of impeachment. There's only one way to get this president out of office. That's twenty twenty elections to Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Ron. Good morning. Morning. See money use for high speed rail. Instead of using money for wall eight billion dollars or whatever they are calling for, I think that money should be used for high speed rail its way over to. We have is that it's a disgrace is this country has a rail system. That is averaging about forty five miles an hour. And like to see some of that money and also the colours talk about taxes, you know, you can't do all this infrastructure without cutting taxes. You have to raise taxes, sometimes to get what you want, especially disasters of reading else. But I I'm I'm a real Amtrak fan. I think Amtrak is being shortchanged every every time there's a problem is where's the best place for high speed rail line in this country? Well, we're I live in Johnston. We have only two trains a day you have about twenty trains a day, and, you know, we could definitely use more more trains, to Pittsburgh and Cleveland in Chicago, and definitely agree. I think it's really a shame. Everything's in the northeast corridor. There should be better transportation and other cities lot of Texas, a lot of bigger cities than just don't even have rail service anymore. So that's the sad part of it. Thanks for the call. You're, you're right on target. United States is the only advanced power, which is not have high speed rail. That's what I mean by losing your economic place in the world. What's taken us so long. Yes. There some this some work being done in this corridor is what we would discussing when we talked about the user fee in gotta have some investment in order to get high speed rail, and we have not done. It is not only have we done it. We have not made any significant investment in high-speed rave rail. Ronna believes name was Ron also says L, sometimes you have to raise taxes on your state has probably raised the user fee. I think that if congress members of congress were afraid of raising taxes as a course, we have seen for decades, they need only look at what their own states have done. You're not gonna get high speed rail and not even gonna get your own roads and bridges which use every day fix unless you're willing to end this case, not raise taxes raise the user fee, so that those who use the rose pay the cost of traveling on those roads to Lancaster, California, Glenn. Good morning. Morning. Instead of another continuing resolution you guys should read a pudgy start working for the American people..

Are they got the number for Debbie stabber? Now. Can I give it out? I'd rather have Jesus number. Me too, Debbie staffing hours the best. I could do. So I hang on a second. If what what good that's fine. If you want to give a number out real quick. But it won't do a bit of good to call her for any reason whatsoever. All you want to tell her that you're in the communist party. Well, I'm of the opinion that if they got a lot of calls and people said we want the wall like I did. And I explained why and. Know, there's a pretty patient secretary, Sarah. Swayed? You do go ahead and get the number of quick don't let me just wait here. But it won't do a damn thing. Go ahead. Give the number three one three nine six one four three three. Oh, all right. Here's why won't do anything. The democrat party is a unified agenda. It's no it's it. It has been for the longest time. The Republicans can never figure out how to do that. But the democrat party is all about a unified agenda. They have been since Obama came to town before that, but way, way way agenda Centric, which is globalist socialism, there's no way around it. And never forget Steve the ends justify the means. You don't give a damn about rips murders drugs coming across the border, by the way, if they had the White House, and they had the house and the Senate right now, they would definitely put up some type of wall on the border. They would that the Democrats will do that they voted for it before. But now they have to do anything they can to destroy Donald Trump. That's what this is all about. Well, I I know everything is saying is right. But still it feels good just to just show a little bit of resist sure from our side. And and I like the thought that maybe there'd stabbing stabbing would come into the office and a few days it kind of own was off the hook. They build that wall. Well, I I appreciate your optimism.

"Yes, they decided that either should be the governor that Josh call should be the attorney general that Mandela Barnes should be the Lieutenant governor and more people voted for Democrats. But the Republicans got sixty three percent of the legislature. And then they want to take power from the governor who got a mandate to address health care to address we dick and the Foxconn deal, and they go and steal that it's unacceptable. I want to turn to Michigan and come to you verge. Let's take a listen to what your home state Senator, Debbie stabber. Now had to say about what's happening in Michigan. This is a complete insult to the people of Michigan who voted a month ago for change. They voted for a democratic governor and Lieutenant governor and secretary of state attorney general to make change happen. They've had eight years of complete control in Lansing, complete Republican control. If they thought this was good policy. They could've changed this anytime in eight years. But of course, it's not about that. It's a power, grab plain and simple. Verge go on and add onto what Senator seven I had to say. Well, of course, Debbie is right on and Jonathan you were right. When you called it an attack on democracy. I served in both the house and the Senate, and there was a different time. There was decorum. And there was respect. This is about so many things, but it starts with what you said an attack on democracy. And as the Senator from Wisconsin said, the people have voted they voted for change. They voted for change in Wisconsin. They voted for change in Michigan with a new governor Gretchen Whitmer, Dana, Nessel, attorney general and Jocelyn Benson for secretary of state, and they ran on specific platforms. Yes. Change reform. And this is about a being a sore loser. And being a poor sport. And all those things, but it's really making attempting to make a mockery of democracy. I don't think they will succeed. And I here am calling on governor Snyder the current outgoing governor Rick Snyder to veto this Michigan is better than this. America is better than this. This is unamerican. Let's be clear. Yes. It's poor sportsman shifts. Yes, it's shenanigans. But people are used to political shenanigans this goes beyond that this is trying to turn us into a banana Republic. This is really at the core of who we are. And it's not who we are in Michigan. It's not mid western values. Okay. This is not what we do. The election has consequences. We respect the other side. The other side is not the enemy. They see things differently. We want a great Michigan. We went on a price bursts, Michigan and country. We have different approaches perhaps to that. But we don't try to end run the election, and the citizens will not stand for this Michiganders are smarter than this. They're not gonna put up for this. I think this is the Trumpian playbook that is being followed by a few of the Republicans at the top, even my Republican friends, the people that I served with this is not the Republican party that they want to be a part of this is not the party that they recognized Rice's unamerican and wrong. And it's not stand Senator. Taylor. What recourse do you in the legislature, or even the people Wisconsin have in case the legislation? That's that's churning through gets signed sealed and approved and becomes the law. Well, the first thing that we have is we have the ability to say to governor Walker don't do this. Don't do this your father who was a man of integrity. God rest his soul. You know would turn over. I'm sure to see his son do something like this. And the legacy of he's a preacher and a person who was very well respected for his legacy and their namesake. I would hope that he would not for his political future. I would hope that he would not. And I think this got Gerald towed us where his position is. He was concerned. I about money, right? He was concerned. I about the people who have been there. There are donors. I think people can tell Walker don't do it. Vetoed this. They don't tweet they can go on social media..

"I also know that the situation that we are sitting in right now, if we do not pass these proposals is that we are going to have a very liberal governor who is going to enact policies that are in direct contrast to what many of us believe in. What do you think of that as an explanation? Well, if Robin boss wants to control what the governor does he should run for governor or should have done more in this campaign, but Tony Evert won the election for governor. And now the legislature is putting aside the practice that has happened for generation in states across the country in our federal government, which is transferring the full powers of the office after an election that Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature have decided that they know better than than the voters apparently, and they're seeking to take powers away from the governor elect an for me. You just said that this will end up in court. There are people saying this is just thirty pool or this is kind of maximalism, but what legal recourse is there for for you and for the incoming governor. I think there are unfortunately likely to be multiple lawsuits that come from this. I mean, one of the issues is that the legislature has taken power that is pretty clearly executive in nature. The ability to resolve lawsuits and has given that power to itself. So there are potentially some separation of power issues here among other things, and one of the unfortunate results of this is you know, you heard Robin Voss speak earlier about how he wants to work together. I have made clear governor elect Everts has made clear that we want to work with Republicans in the legislature in the legislature solve problems that face, Wisconsin. It's like our opioid epidemic, for example. But what the legislature has done with this action is virtually ensured that we're going to be mired in litigation for a big part of twenty nine thousand nine. I'd much rather be focusing on the problems that face, Wisconsin families, Wisconsin attorney general elect Josh call who a Korean new legislation has an office five square feet in total size. Okay. Thanks for having the Chris thanks for joining us next to Michigan where Republicans in that state house are trying to follow. Wisconsin's lead US Senator from Michigan. Debbie stabber now is paying attention. She joins me here. Right after this. Meanwhile, Republicans in Michigan are right now attempting to pull basically the same lane duck stent stunt that was concert publicans just appeared to get away with across the lake GOP. Lawmakers in Lansing or trying to strip power from the incoming democratic governor attorney general N secretary state talk more about what's going on in Michigan on joined by the state's senior Senator Debbie stab now, Senator what are Republicans in your state trying to do right now? Well, I Chris thanks for having me. And I would start by saying that this is a complete insult to the people of Michigan who voted a month ago for change. They voted for a democratic governor and Lieutenant governor secretary of state attorney general to make change happen. And so here's what the Republicans are doing to be able to protect power. First of all they are voting at moving bills to take away campaign finance oversight from the secretary of state. Our secretary of state Johnson. Benson. Literally wrote the book on campaign, finance and voter protection. People in Michigan voted for ballot proposals to add more opportunities to vote to protect the vote. Republicans want to set up a commission take away the authority for her to deal with campaign, finance and bring the light of day on dark money. Secondly, for the attorney general they want to set up a way for the Republicans in the legislature to have equal standing on lawsuits. So an attorney general brings a lawsuit against polluters to protect our water or healthcare to protect trees this in conditions. They want as we publicans to we ought to have equal standing to be able to bring a tax payer lawsuit on the other side. Can I? Yeah. Can I remember they were a Senator had has that ever existed before is that he knew power? So there they've just like will you guys have the attorney general office now, but we have the legislature. So we're going to make the legislature on attorney general, right? Exactly they're saying they've had eight years of complete control in Lansing, complete Republican control..

"Right. So they flipped both houses of the New Hampshire state legislature. They won state level trifecta factors in Nevada and New Mexico. They made big gains in Michigan in the governor's race. But better aerobic Stacey Abrams. Andrew gillum were three statewide candidates who had really caught the imaginations of a national audience. Democrats, and they all bost narrowly, right? And just still sorta maybe maybe in there. Maybe don't don't count it up. But you know, they underperformed a little bit. They're they're polling or their expectations and something, you know, Democrats are going to have to think about in twenty twenty is a potential mismatch between the kinds of candidates that most speak to them in their souls and the kind of candidates who perform best objectively in the battleground terrain. I did not read very many excited profiles of Gretchen Whitmer who just one governor Michigan by by very healthy margin. And I have not read over the past four years that he's been governor. A lot of profiles of governor, Tom Wolfe in Pennsylvania, right there, isn't like crazy national enthusiasm for Debbie stabber now reelected handily in Michigan. But there is a model of upper mid western Democratic Party politician who does very well in those places. And the coastal backlash against Donald Trump is so incredibly strong that anybody like that would get the votes of Costa liberals, and you know, there may just be a mismatch between a tactical imperative to go with somebody who who speaks to that upper mid western political culture versus the kinds of candidates who are most exciting to Democrats did the maps change significantly last night. Or is it still, you know, Democrats do well and big population centers and Republicans control the majority of the real estate like that does that maps to look the same. I mean, we've largely reaffirmed and in some cases, even exacerbated some of the the national trends that we've seen before right that eight years ago, Virginia and Ohio were both swing states. Ohio went to being a little bit more conservative to now clearly more conservative than the average American state Virginia just the opposite direction. Democrats seem to have strengthened their narrow grip on. Vada whereas Republicans the same on Florida. But again in the key midwestern battleground, right the map that we got last night looked a lot like the map of the world in which Hillary Clinton became president right in which we are all saying Donald Trump. Mobilize an unprecedented backlash among you know, Appalachia and rural America, but the blue firewall held. Hilary carried out wins in Pennsylvania, Michigan Wisconsin as well. As a narrow victory in the popular vote and she became president. Right. And we know we've all been telling the opposite story, and I think you have to keep to ideas in your mind, right? Like one is that in most of the country, most of the people that the exact same thing that they did two years ago..

"I have the liberty scores at conservative review for a group of Republican senators from the most conservative states in the country. Right. So I'm not looking at Susan Collins. Right. I'm not I'm not looking at the rare Republican that gets elected Massachusetts. I'm looking at the register of the red states at the time. I finish this manuscript here were their liberty scores. Lamar Alexander Tennessee twelve percent f that Cochran Mississippi. Twenty four percent f Orrin Hatch Utah twenty-seven percent. F-? John Hoven North Dakota twenty eight percent f Roger wicker your home state of Mississippi thirty percent f Johnny ISAACs Georgia. Thirty one percent f Shelly capital West Virginia were Trump when every night every county every freaking precinct every precinct of the state thirty two percent f Lindsey Graham, South Carolina. Thirty three percent f John Cornyn, Texas. Thirty five percent f Mitch McConnell Kentucky. Thirty eight percent. If ROY blunt, Missouri forty-one percent of Bill Cassidy, Louisiana forty four percent f. Bob, corker Tennessee forty-nine percent. Now, these are states. These are states where we'd probably have to Trump could have live sex with stormy Daniels onstage, and he would not lose. Chris would not lose. No Republican presidential candidate can possibly lose these states there the retina of the red, and they all have EF senators, and then I did this. I went and looked at the purple states, the swing states and the democrat liberty scores to think why wonder if the Democrats in those states knowing they gotta kinda straddle the fence if they. Might be more moderate right here. The liberal here. The liberal the democratic liberty scores in the most swing states in the country. Sh- rod Brown, Ohio ten percent f Michael Bennett. Colorado ten percent f Tammy Baldwin Wisconsin nine percent f Gary Peters Michigan. Eight percent f Debbie stabber now. Michigan eight percent f Mark Warner Virginia. Four percent f Bill Nelson, Florida, Mr. moderate, former military guy two percent f Tim Kaine Virginia Catholic prolife democrat two percent out Catherine Cortez. Moscow Nevada zero percent is her liberty score. So Chris explain why the reddish state Republican senators suck and yet the blue the purple state Democrats are perfect democrat voting records. How does that work? It's embarrassing. It means the lobbyists in the good old boys and the establishment, they controlled some of these red states. And that's what has to change you think about this second Mississippi. So the most conservative state in the Republic and. We have US senators that barely speak up that their lead the charge. I've never seen it. It's embarrassing Lucia leading every charge in Washington. Here's the thing the whole country needs conservatives, you're not gonna find them in New York. You're not gonna find them in Massachusetts in California. You can find them in places like Mississippi and Mississippi can't fight for you. Nobody can it's embarrassing and it has to change right now. I have some friends in contacts. And congressman sure you do. I remember last January February when the fake ObamaCare repeal was taking place, and and some people I know in the freedom caucus. We're getting calls from their constituents saying, why are you helping the president repeal ObamaCare, and they're like the Paul Ryan Bill doesn't repeal ObamaCare. We're trying to get the president on a Bill that repeals ObamaCare that set the tone for for really two years of this kind of confusion with our base. And so like yesterday, the president does something that when he does these are the kinds of things were were to me, I'll take on the baggage of his personal character when he wants to advance my agenda. So yesterday says I'm going to take on birthright citizenship. I got his back. Right. Paul Ryan says five minutes later, we're not gonna support that. Now, I bring that up in the context of your conversation because you are trying to you're trying to navigate these waters in real time as a candidate where because the president came in. And said this that Cindy Smith is a conservative choice in Mississippi. You're trying to talk to people that with the president seal of approval and explain to them. That's not what they're getting here..

"Guys. All right. So because of that some of some of the benefit they could they could glean from this. They will cancel out on their own. I hardly agree with you on that. I also think similar to what we said about stories like Russian collusion and other stories, and I've said this throughout the course of the year everybody. That's no one's gonna get up in ten days. No-one? I know we have three hundred thirty million people know registered voter, not one. I promise this voter does not exist. No, one is going to get up on election and ten days and say, you know. Really was unsure about how to vote today. But I just was doing some I just Google that turns out Trump's a Russian agent. Some vote straight ticket voter doesn't exist. Doesn't exist. Doesn't exist. Likewise. I don't believe this voter that's going to get up on Tuesday a week from Tuesday's gonna say man, I just I'm really torn here. But I saw this really killer anti CNN me Mon read it. So I'm going straight ticket voter doesn't exist. Anybody that's mood by issues like this is largely already where they're at. I I don't think there's a swing voter out there that that was on that was until about whether they thought the Republicans deserve control of the house and now because of this site wack job is gonna is gonna change their mind where it will have an impact politically is if you are an Aaron Winter the race. That's a good example of it. If you're a Ron to Santa's and the polls show, your closing the gap with Andrew gillum, and it's basically a toss up race in right now all the news for Andrew gillum is bad. There's even another story today about taking a payment perhaps that he didn't report. Okay. All you need those stories you need that narrative out there. And this is gonna shut all of that down. That's where it's going to impact the electric people are going to change their votes based on this. But the stuff that that could be covered that might change their votes the media. Yeah, it's gone. And it won't just even be in the mainstream media FOX will have no other coverage rather than a story like this. For example. I I'll change my mind at that. It'll be eighty twenty everybody else would be like one hundred ten or one hundred nothing I should say FOX would be like seventy thirty the bombing in thirty percent, helping the Republicans get out the vote, and you need that ratio to be wider. That's what this is gonna do. It's if you're in one of those races that you know, Jordan is the guy's name in Michigan that there was a poll recently showed he was closing the gap on Debbie stabber. Now, if you're a Ron to Santa's if you're the Senate candidate, Michigan if you're one of those races where you are behind, but the, but the polls were showing the gap is Republican voters were coming home and getting more energize the gap was, narrowing the narrative, the new the new..

Now, you got to pay this Nadia. So apparently upset at this guy. He's just not paying. Yeah. And and and that's that's where we stand. And certainly, you know, even if we left all of the other conduct behind. I know we have fans of unawed. We look we were fans of how he handled some aspects of the stormy Daniels cases, right like, but this talk of him as a presidential candidate is absurd. Right. This is this is our Trump, and the, you know, we've talked about how you know, you know, you know, fight fire with fire. That's a stupid, you know, phrase any like this. This is this is somebody who if if this news came out about Elizabeth Warren, right? I would say, yeah. Ok well time for us to move on time. I find somebody actually. Twitter and action just along these lines were I 'cause I I saw someone was tweeting that they were glad avocado was out there in the Democrats need him. And I just said like, no, thanks. We really don't need him. We're fine. We've got got. We've got Harris. We've got Booker. We've got we've got these people got Warren. And then someone respond to me like, oh, great. Yeah. Bring a knife to a gun fight. I was like. Yeah. Well, the thing about voting is if enough people vote for the knife than the knife beats the gun is that things. It was people deify Trump forgetting eighty thousand more votes in three key swing states. And then all of a sudden, he's unbeatable. He's the genius. He's that you can't can't beat him unless you somehow join them like get another Trump or maybe do like demolition is at the one where the guys from the past to arrest the criminals that I have to like another clown horn from from times fat. No snipes. Yeah. If eighty thousand more of us in the right states voted better than it would be. We could elect a librarian who barely talks it doesn't. It doesn't matter. You know, like it's so frustrating this idea that that tiny vote margin just changed so much about our world and just made people turn him into this unbeatable thing, you know, there's all how are we ever gonna beat this guy? He was very close to being beaten, and we just need to do a little better. And I agree one hundred percent as long as we're talking politics. Let me add that the leader. Poll shows Debbie stabber now in Michigan and w stabber now is one of the most liberal members of the Senate right up by seventeen points out wide. Right. So, you know, Michigan was one of those three states that Trump won by tens of thousands of folks in two thousand sixteen in which you know, Democrats made some rather poor strategic choices in their voting in those states. I cannot if you know, look, it's always hard to predict a presidential election, you know, several years out, but Michigan certainly seems to be trending much more blue. Yeah. So yeah, good stuff. That's really interesting. So, but we're not done with Johnny. Because remember this kind of got forgotten by all all admit, I'm talking about myself. I'll pull a Trump and say nobody knew how cop gate healthcare was. I certainly kind of forgot about the fact that during the cavenaugh proceedings of Anaheim.
