J trump sarah gary. Peters of michigan is the chair of the senate homeland security committee. One of the committees published that report and he joins me now senator. What was the scope of this report. What was the sort of task before your committees. The scope is was limited right from the start. It was bipartisan. A look at what exactly happened on january six in terms of security failures. And why did those failures Car and what sort of changes need to occur to make sure that that ever happens again. And that the capitalist secure the men and women who work in the capital are secure and that our democracy is secure to prevent an attack on the capitol building but it was focused on just those days events. we looked at Intelligence and saw obviously failures in intelligence also saw failures from the leadership of the capitol. Police although i wanna be clear and certainly you're opening showed it vividly that the men and women the frontline men and women who are. They're defending the capital. We're heroes but they were let down by their leadership. It was clear in our investigation that there wasn't a plan in fact during the attack. You'll have officers that. Were on the radio. Saying where's the plan. Who has a plan. Put them in a horrible position and also problems with getting the national guard here and the fact that there needed to be more effective planned up front so we were focused on that we wanted to get a plant a report out that has specific recommendations.

Massive U.S. hack one of 'greatest intelligence failures of modern times'

"We're following breaking news on the largest hack on the us government by a foreign adversary ever and their silence from the president. Politico was first reported. Nuclear weapons agency was reached a cyber attack. Russia is believed to have targeted multiple. Us government agencies including the pentagon security and treasury as well experts are saying the hack started six to nine months ago and the trump administration had no idea. It was happening the entire time. The new york times calling it among the greatest intelligence failures in modern times the greatest intelligence failures in modern times. Joining me now is center. Gary peters ranking member on the senate homeland. Security committee senator. Peter's thanks for joining us on this this is astounding to say the least. I have to say when this news broke over the weekend. It was shocking. The first question on my mouth was classified information they get a hold of. And then wow who knew it. Blew up to nine months of basically hacking our government systems. and now. we're learning this breaking news at a politico. The energy department national nuclear security administration have evidence that hackers accessed to their networks as part of an extensive espionage. What are you know about this that you can share a well. What i can say is that we still have to learn a lot more but to to your opening comments It's shocking. This is incredibly disturbing to have such a sophisticated breach that impacted so much of the federal government. The fact that they could get into these systems and be there for a long period of time It's gonna take some time to get a sense of what What is the extent of the what the information did they gather a. What was their intent that we have to get to the bottom of this and we have to do it too quickly because of Of what is at stake here. I know that there's different levels of classification of documents when it comes to the government Do we have any idea what level of classification to reach the we. I don't want to comment on that and we're still learning more about that. This is still this is again. This is a very sophisticated breach. This is the type of breach where cyber professionals Wake up in the middle of the night and are very worried. I can tell you that and we just have to get a better sense of exactly what happened. In part of part of the the action right now is so which is part of the department of homeland security which i am the ranking member of the committee that oversees They've got a directive out now to try to to stop any other attacks on the system so it's important for all of the government agencies to engaged in those activities and then basically them we have to set our threat hunters out. These are teams that will go out and get into these systems to get a sense If they're still a bad guys in there and get them out and then try to assess exactly what they did. So that's that's the process. That's going on right now on the being undertaken in an aggressive fashion. I mean at this point though. Do they even know what they're looking for. Considering the fact that these hackers were able to find a loophole in breach government documents How do they stop something. That they don't even know what they're looking for what it looks like well. It was discovered so they know what it looks like. They do have a directive To stop access bet which they're hoping that implements. So so that's being done and then we do the threat hunting. So we there. That's i was discovered And that once you know it's there then you've gotta look for it in other places. Which is what's happening right now. That it is fairly widespread does throughout the end. Perhaps not just federal government. We're also looking at the independent or private companies as well. This could be in the private sector. This was clearly a massive effort. It was very well orchestrated heavily resource and a true wakeup call do the vulnerabilities we have on our systems. We have to do a whole lot more to protect the systems. And i'll just say that in addition to protecting systems as important as that is we also have to have offensive capability and we have to punish folks who are engaged in this activity and once we know for sure who's behind it We need to let these folks know that this will not be tolerated and there will be consequences.

"Let's go back to yesterday's hearing because there was a great moment. When Senator Ron Johnson, Republican from Wisconsin, chair of the committee chairmen, chairman of the committee, was taking issue with a Democrat senator from Michigan Senator Gary Peters. Who lies hey, lies a lot and he was going around spreading. Apparently he's on the payroll of the Russians or the Chinese or some kind of communists. You know, these Democrats are these days. And so he was spreading misinformation and disinformation Bend the service of his Communist overlords, his master's the Democrat, Senator Gary Peters, from Michigan, and he was out there spreading complete this information. In the end, slandering his colleagues because he's a slimeball Senator Gary Peters, a Democrat from Michigan. I think that's the simplest way to put it is a slimeball. And he was out there in September, he said. The majority staff meeting Senator Ron Johnson and the Republicans, the majority staff report released on this was about Hunter Biden and all of his dealings in the New York Post. But the Senate before the New York Post stories put out it and a long report on all of the corruption in the Biden family and S O this corrupt Democrat from Michigan. Um Gary Peters, he wrote. He said. The majority staff the Republicans report released by Senate, Homeland Security and government affairs. Committee and Senate Finance Committee chairman Ron Johnson and Charles Grassley. Amplifies discredited allegations that are known, he says, are a part of a known Russian campaign to interfere in the 2020 election. He was lying. He was lying. The senator From Michigan was lying. The chairman relied on suspect sources. That's a lie, including known purveyors of Russian disinformation narratives. That's a lie. And he's talking about Rudy Giuliani. And, of course, the everything is born out on the New York Post reporting as the basis for their initial increase, trying to get some weasel words in there. Well. Ron Johnson, Senator Ron Johnson, a legitimate American and not a pathological liar. Like the Democrats, Senator Gary Peters from Michigan decided to take issue because Gary Peters is sitting there in the hearing, and he's lying. Even when he's sitting there silently. He's lying to himself, Senator Ron Johnson decided to have it out with him a little bit. Just have to talk about Russian just information because the people peddling it are not on my side of the aisle. Senior Democrat leaders, including ranking member Peters. We're involved in a process of creating a false Intelligence product was supposed to classify the leaked to the media that accused Senator Grassley, the president, pro TEM of the Senate, which is a good myself leaking of accepting indiscretion. Russian disinformation from Andre Kirsch, Dear Kasha. I've never heard of the person self. They brought it up. Sander Peter's introduced that Breck that false information Russian disinformation into our investigation. Right Democrats Comey's 50 people so see if the intelligence community during the after our 100 Biden bread, instigation more on the revelations of the 100 buying computer said, Oh, this is This is Russian. Just information. Now we find out they were lying investigation by the Justice Department. So it's it's just galling. And I just have to point out that the purveyors of Russian disinformation that cleanse campaign the DNC this Steele dossier the Iraqi member piers accusing Senator Grassley knives descending. Russian just information called amounts where the disinformation is coming. That's where the false information the lies. This false allegations lies. I can't sit by here and listen to this. Say that this is this is not just information this hearing today This is getting information. We have to take a look at to restore confidence in our election integrity. We're not going to be able to move on without Bringing up these irregularities examining them. Providing explanation and see where there really are problems. We can correct it moving forward. And Mr Mr Chairman, I gotta respond to that. I mean, you're saying I'd put it, Peterson. Well, one I did had nothing to do with this report. You lied repeatedly about you lied repeatedly in the press. That was spreading Russia just rushing just information, and that was all right. Lie. And I told you to stop lying and you continue to do it. Mr. Chairman, This is not about airing your grievances. I know what? I don't know What rabbit hole. You're in front of you talked about Russia. The truth, Senator Paul This is simply not what we're dealing with. Mr Chairman, You can't make you a star. Said that that was where it ended. That was the entire exchange that the you know the 24 hour news channels have 24 hours, but they've only got time for 12 2nd sound bites. That was the entire exchange. And he decided to get in. Senator Ron Johnson, a good man used to be a corporate executive wanted to contribute. Torto government came to Washington discovered what assess pool it is. And getting a little aggravated with these pathological liars like Senator Gary Peters, the Democrat from Michigan, who is destroying the United States America along with his fellow travelers. By making the lie equal to the truth. Which is a very sinister thing to do, And they have been working that angle for a great deal of time now and then went to Senator Dr Rand. Paul. He's both a senator and a doctor. I'm a doctor, and I'm the sheriff and the mayor. It's Mordechai and High Plains drifter. He's a doctor and a senator. And he, uh, things that Flasher and Senator Dr Rand Paul who was sitting there. He was trying to get in during this And it wasn't happening because Gary Peters was lying saying that you're you're spreading disinformation is like Yeah, Last time you said I was spreading this information. It was about Hunter Biden and the Russians. You Lion Second Julia, and he didn't call him a latte Land secretary because that would be prejudicial to Lyon. People everywhere. Forget about second. You were so there's Senator Rand Paul in the hearing about vote fraud, and he just said it outright. We can't just say it didn't happen. We can't just say over what robs and people voted in Nevada that were non citizens, and we're just going to ignore it. We're going to sweep it under the rug zone. The courts have decided the facts. The courts have not decided the facts. The courts never looked at the facts. The courts don't like elections since they stayed out of it by finding an excuse, standing or otherwise to stay out of it, but the fraud happened. The election in many ways was stolen. And the only way it will be fixed is by in the future. Re enforcing the laws. Yeah, well, see now that's how the Senate is supposed to sound. But Gary Peters and the Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are extremely personally corrupt people. And once you realize that you will never believe another word that comes out of there festering pie holes because everything they tell you is untrue. These are not people who are interested in the truth, even remotely. They're not interested in the welfare of the country or of Americans. Otherwise, Nancy Pelosi wouldn't have held up this bill for five months since what is it June or July? Nancy Pelosi has held up this relief bill. Republicans offered $1.8 trillion. That wasn't enough because they're demanding that we bail out all their corrupt Democrat mayors that have bankrupted their cities and governors that have bankrupted their states. By throwing billions at their union allies who funnel the money back to them to get them elected so that the Democrats can funnel billions of taxpayer dollars back to the unions. And that's what's going on in this country. And if Jennifer Rubin or anybody else that the Washington Post want to continue to pretend to be reporters, Maybe they should look into a little bit of that. Just saying Man. Oh, man. That's I'm telling, you know, there's an effort to recall on this is good news. California Google Remember the French laundry? Nobody should go to restaurants..

"Phone number is 808 590957 will get some more of your calls coming up in just a little bit. Right now. I want to welcome in a special guest to perhaps could make some sense out of this for me because he's a former elections attorney and law professor at Michigan State University as well. So he understands the litigation that's going on right now. And the threats of it from the Trump campaign. But you know, one of the reasons that we're seeing the challenge to the vote here in Michigan is is in the little County of Antrim and from county up North. And the reason for that you look at it. It's really quite clear and you go how in the world could this possibly happen? You've got Donald Trump at the top of the ballot. John James down the battle it a little bit at a Senate in the Senate race against Gary Peters, which Peters apparently has won. And Ah, and from county you had living to give you a few. These vote totals. Chest only a township. 197 votes cast for John James, three for President Trump. So it went on and on like this, and they have been the various areas And so John James got about 60% more votes in total than Donald Trump got in Antrim County. And that's It's almost unheard of that somebody who was not at the top of the ticket got most of the votes and not the president. Maybe I'm overreacting that I'm not sure John Peerage is with us. The former elections attorney and law professor at MSU we told you about John. Good Morning. Nice to be back with us, sir. Morning Grant. How are you? I'm good. I love to have you tell me how this kind of thing happened so that a secondary candidate if you will on the ballot in John James, running for Senate gets more votes in a in a Republican county than the top of the ticket president does. How does that happen? Well, it happens, obviously, because there was either mistaken tabulations being transmitted from the precinct or just mistaken tabulation. ATT at the counting centers. The reality of elections are not perfect. Mistakes are made. I think the real key assault about state are made are normally not of any ultimate significance to the outcome of individual races. But again, the elections are not perfect. There are errors that occurring. I believe that the errors and Antrim County have been addressed and will be reported properly in the results. Are due to be filed within 72 hours of Election day with the county I haven't heard of that solution yet. Can you give me Ah shorthand for movement? Well, I mean, basically what we have reported on Election night. Oftentimes is what actually is the final report that will go in because we don't double and triple and quadruple check of reports in various precinct, various township cities, villages and counties. So it's just the process of going through to find out when there are these kinds of lift. What was the reason? And is it something that's really more human? In terms of transposition or that actual vote count? I believe what I heard last night that this was just a transposition error that will be rectified. What does that mean? Exactly? That's a proper count will be reflected in the final tabulations issued within 72 hours of the election day. So the actor account so the count that we're seeing right now they're just saying their apparently some errors and it will fix it. Yeah, And I don't know what account your thing Right now. The reality is there were different results that have reported it either to media outlets or the secretary State office coordinates with the counties. All of the reports to come in from the county board of Canvassers, and then eventually I was reported to the state Board of canvassers that will meet in early December so that any of these kinds of issues will be addressed resolved and there will be I believe and samples of solution to whatever the issue Wass. Yeah, The errors were pointed up by the way by Tom McMillen, not just a Republican voter but also A state legislator, a member of the Board of Education in Michigan, those air among the jobs that he has held and so he has some insight into the sort of thing. Well, if you if you look at the results, you confined young. Whatever information you independently might not come back when it's from when he was a state legislator, and he's very diligent what he does in regard to election monitoring. But again, I think that part of the process many eyes looking at all of these results. Making sure that the accurate and precise count is delivered by the date of certification, which I'm very confident will happen in this case. Yeah, I've got to tell you, John, if I'm on the ticket, and I see these kind of vote totals in a in a township like that, where Chest. Only a township up there. The votes were John James 197 and Donald Trump. Three. Ah, in another county. It was 432 to 4. Another township. I should say 432 to 4 John James versus Donald Trump. And in a torch lake Township, 527 to 8. Those are the kind of numbers that lead to a lot of suspicions of the coral system and and really subvert the confidence that we have an adult. The while. Number one. This is this is one particular region. I don't know the actual facts, but the reality is, I don't think the system is introverted in any way, shape or form. Way from a state perspective from a national perspective. Elections are very, very efficient procedures. Might there be a minor error? Yes, there might be, but the reality is is that I said earlier. Typically, they have absolutely no outcome impact on the outcome of the election itself. All right. So bottom line is you believe this was not an intentional effort, Teo subvert the vote in any way. No, I don't think there's any evidence of that kind of allegation. Number one number two. I think that's what we have cameras. That's why we go back over and check and recheck and I believe they have the actual factual determination of the electors in those areas will be reported when the results are certified. The bottom line. Was it inevitable that one day we would have all an election this contentious and and this close, really, with the lawsuits being threatened and and filed Well, the lawsuits that have been threatened or filed like the one that filed in in the state Court of planes yesterday. Really expect I'm not even sure what I understood What? I don't understand why was filed it was to help accounting of the process. Until there was something called, uh, adequate representation.

Democrats are now unlikely to win a majority in the Senate: Here's where things stand

"Republicans are enjoying a much better election than anticipated. Republicans are now poised to maintain their majority in the Senate. I just received a very gracious call from Sara Gideon conceding the raise voice of Republican Senator Susan Collins, speaking earlier today in Maine, a state that Democrats had considered a must win to have a chance at flipping the Senate. No. In the House Republicans are expected to pick up seats shrinking the Democrats majority down to single digits for more on this NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis is here. Hey there, Sue what went wrong, so to speak for Democrats? Yeah, I mean, it's been a complete reversal of fortune for Republicans down the ballot. There had been this widespread confidence that Democrats were going to take over the Senate that they could gain as many as six or seven seats. And that Democrats were poised to grow their majority in the House by as many as 10 to 20 seats. Obviously, not if that happened. I think the one thing everyone is pointing to right now is just how wrong the Poles were. I think in that main Senate race that's a great example. The Democrats Sara Gideon, she led in public polls all year long and yet still fell far behind in the race. I talked to election analyst Sean Trendy this morning, and he told me that polling simply did not account for Trump's support that a significant number of Trump voters just were never accounted for. Those are the exact people that when you hear a phone call in the person says Hi, I'm from the New York Times. Would you take it all? Just go click. I think it is that straightforward. I also talked to Democratic Congressman Ami Bera of California today, and he said that the polling was way off from where it was in the 2018 midterms. And that's when Democrats won. He basically told me he just thinks Democrats couldn't account for the effect that Trump has when he himself is on the ballot. While it looks like Republicans will hold their majority in the Senate, Not all races have been called. Can you tell us what still outstanding? Yeah, There's still five races that haven't been called 47 have been called for Democrats 48 for Republicans won were watching really closely Is Michigan. There's a Democratic incumbent there. Gary Peters. He's running narrowly behind a Republican John James. Obviously, what could be a pickup opportunity for Republicans. North Carolina remains really tight, but incumbent Republican Senator Tom Tillis is leading. You know, that was always seen as a state that was critical to the majority. So if Republicans hold it, I think that's one of the reasons why they seem to feel pretty secure. Right now. Alaska hasn't been called, but I don't really see any reason there to think it's going to be a Democratic pick up and Last one's Georgia. There's two Senate races there. One of them is going to go to a January runoff, and it's quite possible. The other one where it's held by incumbent Republican David per two, might be able to hold it off and win it out, right. Given that there are some races that are going to be uncertain, at least for the next few days does that What does that mean for the Senate majority? It does, and you know, depending on how Georgia goes, it could take quite some time. North Carolina in particular, could be tight and could be subject to court challenge. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke to that reality earlier today in Kentucky. You can anticipate in close elections, Both sides will be lawyered up and we'll end up in court. It's happened over and over and over again. Nothing unusual, and I do want to see her. I think McConnell has a point, and it's worth focusing on that. I think a lot of people are really nervous about what's gonna be happening with Balan challenges. It's really not uncommon, especially in Senate races to go through court challenges. Before they're certified. It happens almost every election year. That's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thank you. You're welcome.

"Deal is kind of how I feel about it. I've been with team and I'm kind of a leader of the team. Of the national security leaders for Biden and had been with him since July. And that's why I'm endorsing Joe Biden, Kamala Harris. Okay, I was. I was just looking at your website, which is national security leaders. The number four biden dot com. And it's kind of the opening paragraph of of a letter to everybody in the country. This is what they're saying. This as we are former public servants who have devoted our careers and in many cases risked our lives for the United States were generals, admirals, senior noncommissioned officers, ambassadors and senior civilian national security leaders. We are Republicans, Democrats and independents. We love our country. And unfortunately we also fear for it. The covert 19 pandemic has proven America needs principled, wise and responsible leadership. American leads a president who understands US President Harry S. Truman said that the buck stops here. And I wanted to bring you on to veterans radio today to bring this side of the argument to our listeners, and I know that many of them have probably voted already or They've already made up their mind who they're going to vote for. And I just feel it's really important that we get to hear both sides of this particular argument. So we've got a couple of minutes left. Um, if there are any other comments that that any of the three of you would like to make I'm like one make one additional comment. This is Mark Mon Char. Don't forget some of our other leaders like Senator Gary Peters here in Michigan. There's a lot of talk about him. Versus John James Senator Gary Peters. Is it trusted and leader in a senator who crosses the island worked with Republicans, and I think he's done a great job. And there's a lot of other folks in Michigan who Also support Joe Biden. So don't forget about some of our other leaders like Senator Gary Peters. Okay? Tracy. Anything else from you? If you wouldn't mind, I just wanted to Remind your listeners that Unfortunately, there are over 900,000 veterans in the United States of America who were on food stamps. And welfare is being targeted by the Trump administration. Um, for elimination. Now, I can't think of any bigger as my Sicilian grandfather used to say smack in the face to those 1% who put their lives on the line for our nation and to say we're not going to help take care of you anymore after you've served We're going to leave you out in the cold with no backup plan, but it's also important for your listeners to remember that, you know. Under this administration. The predatory lenders. Through the For profit institutions that are veterans. Try to leverage the G I bill for are being duped. And what does that mean? It means that they're signing up at universities, online universities. And reach their education, only to be told that So you are with $100,000 now. President Trump signed an executive order that would automatically discharged federal student loans for veterans who qualified for total and permanent disability. But the program has not been enforced by the Department of Education. And it was only through a FOIA request that undercover that the Department of Education under Secretary Devo Devo, appointed by President Trump had wrongly put into default. More than half Of the totally and permanently veterans who qualified for the discharge. Now for them to get out of it. They have to prove It wasn't economic hardship that put them in that situation. It's an uphill climb, and I would encourage your listeners to go to a nonprofit organization called Veterans Education Success. Who's really been fighting hard to make sure that under the Trump Administration veterans are no longer being thrown under the bus for trying to leverage the forever G I bill. And this is something that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris has talked about making sure that there is access to education that is Three if you're going to a community college, etcetera, etcetera. So you think that's a really important, really important aspect that we don't leave our veterans out in the cold by pulling them off of food stamps and that we don't throw them under the bus when the predatory colleges for profit colleges are coming after them for their money money? That will not happen under Abided Harris administration. Thank you. Done going to give you the last word here. Well, I appreciate that. First they let me let me say thank you for all you do for all of our veterans. Your broadcast the recent it has On the opportunity to present your people to get a balanced view is really important. And I really appreciate it. Well. The Close ties and relationships that you you have personally with Fisher House and Great job Fisherhouse Michigan is doing for veterans. And as well as the the other sponsors that you have our veterans service organizations and in an arbor Um, I would just like to leave. Everybody was, um, just thought When the sun sets and on the third of November ballots are still in the process of being counted here, Michigan and they'll continue to be counted up until they're done. We have several days beyond the third to get done. You're aware of this pandemic is still gonna be with us. It's not going to go away Just because we have an election. We should never, ever forget that. We're going to continue to suffer Hardship is a result of it, and we're going to continue to need strong leadership. A cz we as we really go after her cure, ware, not weeks away from a cure. We are months, maybe more likely a couple of years away from a cure that will only come through. Inoculation of everybody, and that will say quite a long time to get done. This isn't going away. It's not going away just because somebody says you don't need to wear a mask where we choose not to wear a mask, even though The best health officials. The country has will tell you. That's one of the major mitigating factors and we can have to stop this road that we're just like everybody to remember that Also, I would like everybody remember what Mark what Mark said about Remember, there's more to the ballot, just what's at the top? Are Senate race in the state of Michigan is very important because number one we've got a Truman got. We've got a guy with a proven track record. Reaching across the aisle.

"Senator Kelly Leffler. Over in Michigan Democratic Senator Gary Peters is still leading in the polls, but black Republican candidate John James is gaining ground. I am not standing here on this stage because of socialism. I'm standing here because of free enterprise and freewill because self determination works. More high profile black Senate contenders on the ballot this year than ever before, and more money flowing into their campaigns. 2021 could be a historic year in terms of what Congress actually looks like. I'm tan Xena Vega and that's where we start today on the take away. Joining me now are Amanda Terkel, Washington bureau chief at Huff Post, and Andre Gillespie, a political scientist at Emory University. Amanda and Ondra. Thanks for for being with me. Thank you. Hi, Ondra. Let's start with you. What do we What can we attribute to this rise in black Senate candidates this year? Why are there so many folks running for office? Well, this is an opportune year for Democrats to run for office is evidenced by the number who tried to run for president. People see a lot of dissatisfaction with it. Of course, the country is going in a lot of dissatisfaction with the Trump administration, and they think that that's actually going to have an impact on the chances of Democrats to be to be ableto win races up and down the ticket. Um, and given the fact that African Americans make up anywhere from a quarter to 1/5 of of the Democratic Party coalition, it's not surprising that you would see so many African American candidates, particularly the Democratic candidates for their hat in the race to run for office. Ah, you know, there's just this deep bench within the Democratic Party coalition and we've seen Democratic candidates. Black Democratic candidates do well. In recent years, even if they haven't won office. So you know, I think the idea that black candidates are permanently you know disadvantage because of their race is something that's openly being challenged by the performance of these candidates and races. And under let I'm curious about the money that we're seeing flowing into some of these campaigns. What's driving some of that? Well, money is a signal of competitiveness. Um, And so if you see it's like investment, So if if if if people see a product On day once and they think that it's going to be successful. They're willing to actually put their capital behind it. Um and then, same way with candidates. If somebody sees that a candidate has a chance of winning, or, you know, is a candidate who is well positioned to perform well in an election, you're going to see people put their resources behind that particular candidate. And so I say, the You know, The fundraising that we've seen, particularly for Jamie Harrison in South Carolina is a sign that one he's well networked, but also that people actually view his his race is actually being viable. Amanda, Speaking of Jaime Harrison. He's probably a CZ. We mention the most high profile of the black Senate candidates. This year. He's generated a ton of buzz. He's also generated a ton of money. How close is the race there now? I mean, what are the most recent polls telling us Yeah, Harrison. He is now pulling about even with Graham. Um and of the black Senate candidates this cycle. He is the closest you know, Harrison is getting a lot of attention not only because he is running a good race, but also because of who he's running against. Lindsay Graham is sort of a villain to a lot of Democrats and even more so. Now that you have, uh, him as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, helping to push through Amy Cockney Barrett for the Supreme Court. And so that's a big reason that Jamie Harrison saw such an influx of money, Um after Ruth Bader Ginsburg death, and when Trump made it clear he was goingto nominate someone before the election, and you know again, all the Senate Democrats, Senate Democratic candidates. It's all out of donations, but Harrison is a real focus for the party. And Amanda are weak, or do we know where these donations air coming from? I mean, a lot of candidates often talk about particularly presidential candidates have often talked about how small donors are really making the difference. Our Particularly in the Harris campaign. But in the other campaigns that were going to talk about is this largely super Pac money. Is it individuals? What do we know? It is a lot of small donors. A lot of it is coming from out of state in the South Carolina race, And that's not just for Harrison. But for grammas well, it's attracting a lot of national attention, as did say Stacey Abrams, who was running in Georgia, But you know, black candidates often have had trouble getting establishment support. Um, they are often newer to politics. Not always. But sometimes, and they just face thes institutional hurdles and and higher barriers to showing that they're viable in the main way to show that they're viable is through donations. And so the establishment is sometimes slow to get behind these candidates. Harrison does have the support of the Democratic senatorial Campaign committee, which is in charge of electing Democrats in the Senate, as do the other day, all but one of the other black Ah Senate candidates this cycle, but some of them feel like they haven't gotten enough money from the party. Um, it's taken too long for you know the party bigwigs to notice them and they've told me that they still face questions about, can you? No. Can a Democrat really went in your state and kind of black Democrat really win? And so those those barriers are still there? But people like Stacey Abrams, in her historic runner are helping to knock them down. As I'm sure these candidates will a swell Sandra..

"Talk 7 60. W. J. R. I'm just running across the story for the first time. I don't know how I did not see it earlier this week. Our producer Chris Ren works on the line. Way Had John James on this week. We get we get Teo find Gary Peters Senator Gary Peters. Chris, I don't know if you saw the story today, but, uh It's it's out there. Apparently, he told the story several days ago to Elle magazine for one About and he's the first U. S senator to do this talking about how he and his first wife, his ex wife, she had an abortion because her life was at risk when her water broke just four months into a pregnancy that they desperately wanted. And so she had an abortion. At the time he becomes the first U. S. Senator to Ah to reveal a personal abortion story like that, And he said, Look, people faced this kind of tough decision every day in America, and that's something that we faced. But he said my wife's Life was in danger because her water broke so early like that at four weeks, and he said, We really had no choice and the doctor told them to. Ah, hey, didn't want to do it, he said. He finally said, Look, she could use lose her uterus, and if she becomes septic, she could die. That's what he told her, so they felt they had no choice And that's one of those situations that we hear about, but not often not because We assume that every abortion is one of choice and convenience for the for the future parents and not necessarily a life or death situation, But it sounds as if With the ex wife of Gary Peters. It wasn't life or death situation and that you put yourself it's appearance in that situation, Christian and you know, what do you do when when your your wife is there, and she's at risk of losing her life, if if the pregnancy is not ended because of AH, problem with it. And that's the kind of medical examiner and scary hold so much. Yes, exactly. Exactly, And so I would think nobody will hold that against him. Although you know, in the middle of a campaign like this for this story to suddenly pop up, it's almost inevitable that it's going to be brought up in the rest of the campaign, right? Sure, I would think so. Yeah. I mean, you're only what a couple weeks out here, so Yeah, I would think so very much. All right, let's get let's get some calls in here and talk about this and a whole lot more. Colleen and Garden City is first up this time around. Hello, Colleen. Right. How are you? I'm very very well, Thank you for the call that I saw. Commercial where Gary Peters talked about his wife's abortion. I just thought it was kind of a really personal item to be putting out there for everybody. But the other thing is None of our news stations. 247 have said anything about under Biden and his dad. Well, not well, I don't know how they I don't know how you avoided, especially after what Rudy Giuliani said on our show this morning. Just a flat out. He's a crook. I know. I know he is They both are. They all are, anyway. The democrats, but, um, yeah, none of the news stations. They're even talking about it. They don't even have it on their website. Dr Brothers. They're not even gonna mention that is that's that's sad that they don't think that's that's worthy of discussion because you know that that's the kind of Ah it's. It's a kind of I don't want to see it a gallon here, but is it would be illegal? If if all these allegations are true, But it's just so distasteful and dishonest. You know that. At its core. That's all if the allegations are true, while they have proven and trail, But if you don't show what nobody's going to know it calling if I could be personal here, what is your stance on abortion? I don't think it should be. Legal. I mean, I understand. Like Gary Peters. You know if it's medically needed, then by all means, Do what But not just for you know the head of the To get pregnant. You're bored. That's not right. All right. Appreciate it calling. So if a life is at risk you you believe that it would be okay to Ah, have that abortion if the mother's life is at risk. Ah, And there are a lot of people share that point of view. Coming. Appreciate the call. Thanks so much. Let's go to Canton right now. Jane on the Frank Beckmann Show Europe Next. Hello, Jane. Hi. Uh, I'm anyway. You want my coming on abortion? Whatever you want to talk about Jay, what? You're speaking of someone who gave a baby up for adoption so beautiful and you're talking to someone who adopted a baby. Ah, And so you know what? We adopted a baby after we lost one. That's Sze story there. I have My mind went blank. And then I have a cousin who she's 70 78. Her mother had an appointment to have an abortion to board her. And she didn't go to. It was for health reasons, but she changed her mind and then have the abortion. And now my cousin is 78 well. Anyway, I called and forever and forever grateful about that. Does she talk about it? Well, she told me that her sister told her has told her that story because she didn't know about it. You know, she talks about it now. It's it's a It's a difficult situation. And for people who have never been through it. You cannot imagine the emotional distress. Maybe you can't imagine it. But it is. I just tell you for for the families, it is so absolutely horrible. Teo to go through something like that losing losing a child due to some unforeseen circumstance, and, you know, eventually it's called abortion. But it's to save the life of the mother in these cases, and any doctor will perform that procedure basically. I have a sister in law who had to carry her. Dead baby till it was came out. Naturally, My goodness. And so that was really heartbreaking for her. I'll sure hand tohave it to have the baby. Then be stillborn. Had to be just absolutely horrible. See, we won't think we went through that my wife and I went through that she was expecting a baby and and had some issues and and the baby was basically dying in the warm and Okay.

"John James stand on the issues? And what more can you tell us about him? Right. So, as I said, if you're talking about Gary Peters being sort of moderate, let's say that is the exact opposite of James writes that James is very conservative on issues. He's a Southeast Michigan businessman, and he ran actually for the Senate once before, just two years ago against another Democratic incumbent, Senator Debbie Stabbing, who won in that sort of large blue wave on DSO. James is well known in the state Republicans. Just adore him and what's really interesting in that same poll that you were talking about? At the beginning, it showed that also his name I D is quite similar to Senator Gary Peters, which is pretty incredible When you think of an incumbent senator versus a candidate. How much is President Trump come up in this race? Well, it's very interesting. So two years ago, the first time John James ran, he said quote. He was 2000% behind the Trump agenda. There's definitely some more nuance in 2020. He is still absolutely a supporter of Donald Trump. But I would say he's mentioning The president less than he was two years ago, not doubling down on the Republican president and instead sort of talking as we heard in that ad about his own values his own history and are all the polls showing a pretty close race, Or does Peters have the edge and most of them? Well, of course I always like rather than just looking at one pole, looking at the trend and S O. If you look at the trend, actually, this is sort of the closest pool that we've seen again when you mentioned as of recent, so the trend would show that it appears to be a tightening race. But again, that's not to be unexpected. Michigan Way are interesting state to watch. As you noted, you know, Trump won the state four years ago. We do tend to send Democrats to D. C. S so it'll be interesting to see, but the polls do appear to be tightening. But in terms of the money game, John James continues quarterly to outraise the incumbent, Peters.

Congress urges Postal Service to undo changes slowing mail

"US Senator Gary Peters. He's from Michigan. He yesterday asked individuals, businesses and groups to contact his office about issues with mail delivery. He is opening an investigation into cuts to the U. S. Postal Service. He is the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. They oversee the Postal Service. He said he is working to get to the bottom of any changes that the new postmaster general, maybe directing that undercut the Postal Service's tradition of effective service. He's doing this in light of a lot of complaints that have been we've been hearing and reports that we're reading in various newspapers and other publications, so and by the way, the post office asked for assistance in the stimulus package and They received nothing. So they're also functioning with less money than what they need in order to stay solvent through the pandemic.

"Of thousands of Michiganders'. And they think one thing to mention before we leave. The John Jay segment is that despite the fact that he's been raising more funds each quarter than Gary Peters Gary Peters, still has more cash on hand and Gary Peters has consistently lead in the polls right now are CPI has him at plus ten point one. So Gary Peters out there kicking, but still. Okay well, let's get to one of the leading contenders for dumbest member of the state legislature. I mean there's a lot of competition up Republican boola whatever has introduced legislation to have the state sent in my statement of the damages, cost expenses and other losses. Spurred by the COVID nineteen pandemic to China, so he was a bill China for all of the cost of Covid, saying that it is not a partisan issue that brought cova to the shores of the United States. It was China that did that. This is stupid. And couple of Democrats have signed onto it, and he said it isn't a symbol, but that it would be a good symbol if it was a symbol. He seems to really want to do this. I think is just messing around again, but people have signed onto it. I, think it's only tomorrow racism to actually do something like that. We already have students who are not just from China, but really Asia. The students at the universities here are already experiencing. Racism is certainly isn't China's fault that the virus was as bad as it was in Michigan. I can't believe it. I just can't believe that anybody would introduce something so ridiculous can believe it actually I think China's already angry at us because we sent them Kentucky. Fried Chicken and Taco Bell. In retaliation for that before we get to our political attack of the week, a look back at a recent interview, we talk with the founder of the right way pack, which is working to get Republicans to support Joe Biden. We interviewed former Ohio GOP Chairman Mad Borjas who started that effort. Mister Borges. He got a little problem turns out. He's one of five people indicted in Ohio this last week. In a sixty million dollar bribery scandal, which also involves the Republican speaker of the House. That makes Matt Borjas officially our very first felony. Guest at least as far as we know. Up See. And you know I. Don't even know what to think about that, I. Don't know much about Matt Barges. And I'm certainly not going to wish him well, but. One of the things that I really noticed if you listen to him and you listen to Jeff. Timur the difference in the way that the Republicans are attacking trump in these two different groups where the Lincoln project with. Jeff Timur. Is Just tearing down the House right? Just just trying to Clean House and start over and Matt Borges comes in and says no I want everybody. To be. Reelected all the Republicans to be rocketed except trump as a totally different approach and I thought that that was. One of the most interesting things that came out of that interview was the contrast between the two and probably a conflict that is. Playing out across America with Republicans everywhere now the political tech at of the week. That doesn't even sound like an attack yet, but it really is. It comes from the Joe Biden campaign only today. We're facing serious threat. We have to meet it as one country. Numbers Lie. Infection rates are now going up in more states than they're going down. got a slight this. Where a mass! Keep your distance. Limit the size of crowds. Maybe inconvenient. Maybe uncomfortable. But it's the right thing to do is an American. We need a president who love with the American people. presonal tell us the earn Barney's truth. President take responsibility instead of always blaming others. President listen to the experts. Follow the science. Allow them to speak. President. Be being, example for the nation. We have to do all we can. To keep our fellow, American safe and health. I'm Joe Biden and I approve this. And the polling shows. That's working at messages working because the American people are buying it, it is the reason that Donald. Trump revived the Donald Trump Comedy Hour Aka. Pandemic briefing at least for a while last week. Because he's gotta get a, she's trying to get on top of the issue. The problem is you can't spend your way out of a pandemic. That's already caused a hundred and fifty thousand deaths in the United States about one fourth of all the deaths from the virus in the world have been the United States in Donald. Trump can't escape that fact. Honestly while a is so surreal to me that that man gets up there and talks about the pandemic, and it's the same guy in another interview that brags about his cognitive test where he recognized elephant. I don't understand how we got to this point. It hurts. So many levels person woman man. Camera, idiot. He did the best ever on that on that test so. Michigan's unemployment compensation system has been tested beyond belief more than two million michiganders' have received unemployment benefits during the pandemic. It's been a bumpy ride. An extension of problems that have plagued the US system for several years. Bridge Magazines Jonathan. Opening has done a deep dive into the mess. That is the US system Jonathan. Thank you for joining us on the PODCAST. How much of this problem with the US? System is the result of the unprecedented volume of claims, and how much is the result of for one of a better term preexisting? Preexisting conditions with the system. I don't know if we can quantify exactly. You know what what percentage of the problem is attributable to either of those factors, but certainly it's a combination of both so basically experts. We spoken to court records. We looked at show that in the pandemic has just exposed these long standing flaws in the computer system used by the Michigan, unemployment insurance, agency, known as MIDAS on this is the same system that got the state in a bunch of trouble a few years ago with the. The false fraud scandal and the problem with this system is even according to the director of the unemployment trans- agency it over flags people, so it uses algorithms to detect possible errors or fraud, and it does that at too high of a rate, so a lot of people for instance get these flags called non monetary issues, which means that maybe a record doesn't match up exactly data. You've submitted versus data. Your former employer submitted now that had been happening for years, but suddenly you've got this huge volume of a million people plus. Plus applying for benefits and these non monetary issues started to really happened in a larger volumes, and what happens is when you have one of these issues, then you need to call or go to a Michigan unemployment trends. Agency office, which are closed so because there were so many more of these issues popping up on the website, so many more people had to call the state help line the State Call Center, and that God overwhelmed as well so it's sort of a vicious cycle right that the computer system caused these. People probably at a higher rate than it needed to. And then those people needed to talk to someone at the state which didn't have enough people to handle all of the volumes. What thing that stood out to me and reading your articles and bridge was that maybe the biggest critic of the system is the guy who runs it now, and he is not satisfied in his takeover. SEPE can. How is Steve Gray progressing with fixing this mess? It's been around now for several years. Steve Gray. Advocate. He ran a.

"The program ends in Michigan on July twenty fifth. It could mean a crash in consumer spending evictions for non-payment of Rent and mortgage foreclosures. What now that's where I began my conversation with this week's very special guest. United States. Senator Gary Peters. Senator Peters. Let's start off with the cliff. That Michigan is facing. The whole nation is facing at the end of this month. The supplemental federal benefits run out for a million michiganders and a lot of economists. Saying this could be a second recession on top of the first one is the Senate could do anything well I share your concerns we on July twenty fifth at ends here in in Michigan the additional money to help folks who are. Are Who are unemployed and the jobs are not coming back as quickly as anyone would like them to come back, so could present a significant problem if it's not extended. That's why I'm going to work to extend. Those benefits for folks were hoping. Mitch McConnell actually. Take up a second bill. You know he's been resisting that. That has been unwilling to move legislation forward, even though economists across the board and across the partisan spectrum are saying we need. Need to act and we need act quicker verses later even the chair of the Federal Reserve says it's important for us to make sure that we continue to put a stimulus in the economy, and if we don't do that, the economy can get worse and dig a deeper hole than it's more difficult to turn it around, but just think of the human customer talking about families. We're talking about people who need to continue to put. Put Food on the table and make sure that there is a a roof over their over their head. That's why I worked to aggressively get the unemployment insurance in the first place in fact, if you, if you look at the the cares act that passed that provided that unemployment insurance. It's actually my legislation that I wrote which was the pandemic assistance, act, that was put into The cares act and what that did was EXP-.

"And governor will have until august to come up with new district maps for congress in the state legislature because of gerrymandering last two times maps where we drawn in two thousand and one and two thousand eleven republicans controlled both the legislature and the governor's office making it a one party operation this time we've got split control something we haven't seen for redistricting this century then state representative jeff pat in was part of that process nearly forty years ago after leaving the legislature he started what has become influential lansing think tank public policy associates this week what pock but jet pad and about redistricting end the changes in talent in state government over the last forty years jeff when you were a legislator you didn't have term limits you had splits control troll of government you went through a redistricting process what's the mindset of legislators assuming they do have to draw some new maps the senate the court ruling stands up and survives and fill the supreme court well when we went through the redistricting district ing process a in the beginning of the decade of eighties make no mistake the democrats were eager to manipulate that process for the maximum partisan advantage and you know i've talked a staff staff people in the many years since that took place and i've had them tell me oh you don't wanna know what kind of things we were asked to do and we actually did in constructing map so the first question that was asked a lot of times what is john dingell waters is okay with single yeah oh absolutely and and lots of other things that were far worse than that so democrats and republicans have manipulated the redistricting process to their advantage whenever they could whenever they've had whenever they have power but in the end i think we ended up with a map the reasonably reflected the overall partisan will of the people in michigan which is at least in my mind unimportant consideration we didn't end up with far more democrats that's in the house then you would expect based on the aggregate number of democratic votes cast in those a general elections you also have a governor murphy other parties democrats control the legislature bill militant a republican governors and he was thoroughly knowledgeable the process and in some ways he was the republican governor gretchen whitmer he really knew the legislative process and was working with a party on the other side of this could work with them now you've got a republican legislature in a democratic governor but i don't see the the same level of a metric cooperation is quite the right turban at least being able to work together right at least you want some sort of the time during the milliken ero there was a very strong working relationship between the democratic leaders in the legislature and the republican governor they liked one another they communicated frequently and constructively and i hope that's what it evolves during this administration i believe that the governor whitmer has certainly reached out in indicated her interest in and willingness to do so and i frankly heard of these republican leaders say the same thing now will see whether those words translate into action you work with the legislature me outside now for a couple of decades in you you kind of understand the mindset even though you don't know the people because of terminal this of the mindset is is changed so much they've got a top of the potential of redistricting they've also gonna deal with term limits which in the case of the michigan senate means nine members make it there curves cut short they may be kicked out after two years instead of four 'cause they're already on their starting her while right if the court decision stands that could well be the consequences there'll be nervous and it's no surprise that there will be lots of opposition to the current court decision on attempt to overturn that now you've created a policy shop after you left the legislature just like you're policy is you're thing and you've got some very major proposals on the table right now or dealing with roads which is to the two and a half billion dollars on top of what the state of spending already a crisis in education just two of the things they have to deal with things that need bolt solutions and legislators better looking off of their backs is any anything get done in this climate on infrastructure and education my hope is that republicans in the legislature and the democratic governor can declare a truce and work on those in they nonpartisan or bipartisan way a to get something done it's so important important to the public so important to the future of the state but i think that's important so maybe maybe we should call it a demilitarized zone in politics and and work on those policy issues in a in a dramatically different way i think if we do we can then look back on this era of ten years in the future and say you know what the legislature and the governor stepped up and did what they needed they do because the public needed at demanded in would ultimately benefit tremendously by it seems like they other elephant in the room is big business the business organizations have basically said you gotta fix the damn problem with the rosen you gotta fix it with the schools in much to the chagrin of the republican leadership this is saying you're attitude of no how no way just isn't gonna cut it if i were in the position of the republican leadership i would be very nervous about taking on my principal constituency which is the the business community and i believe that a business leaders from michigan michigan chamber of the small business association of michigan all of them are influential enough to make an impact on the decisions made by republican leaders in the house and senate and and the rank and file members there's something i think a lot of us have seen in find really interesting is this growing friendship an alliance between small business association of michigan specifically their president's brian kelly the former lieutenant governor and governor whitmer did you see that coming well after the primary election i think there were a number of indications that there was a growing relationship not just between brian kelly and governor whitmer but between outgoing governor rick snyder and governor whitmer there was no love lost between the governor lieutenant governor and the republican nominee for governor what does surprise me somewhat is that his continue past the general election and they seem to be well kelly in particular seems to be genuinely attempting to do what he can to help the governor succeed certainly not to the extent that he would contradict the needs and interests of what is now his constituency small business owners in michigan but he has been i think more canny about finding common ground between interests of his constituency any intentions of governor whitmer somebody else who's really kind of changed i think we'd widmer's governor is the head of the michigan say chamber of congress rich doug like he has been very outspoken in the past calling out democrats it's on everything was very hard core part as a republican and he's been very quiet lately well it's it's a bit of a mystery i think you've been characterized a mystery studly pretty accurately the chamber i think unfortunately fortunately has come to operate essentially as an arm of the republican party that's in contrast to another business group the small business association of michigan which deliberately positions itself in between the two parties and tries to make the party's compete for the support of small business so why mr suddenly has been a little bit quiet i'm not sure it's just it's certainly been awhile since he had the deal with the a strong democratic governor let's talk a little bit about term limits you've seen both sides of it as a member you serve with out term limits and work with people who literally made a career of being legislators you served under 'em i speaker who is generally considered the most effective speaker the history of the state now you've got a speaker this is casting aspersions on but he's thirty years old is when government for four years can he be as effective working across the aisle not having had that experience this term limits really hammering him i believe in my recollections from a long long time ago and bit fuzzy but i believe the bobby krim became speaker just after he was elected to his third term in the in the second term he had also served as executive secretary under bill ryan fraternal in between so he was elected in sixty four i think bobby krim situation was truly unique he was very experienced and very knowledgeable when he gave became speaker even though he has sir very long in the legislature he was the beneficiary of the vast knowledge in politically canning is of bill ryan is predecessors speaker and i think that benefited the vote today you have speakers taking office who if if anything has been mentored by a speaker who himself had very little experience generally campbell come out of local government yeah so i think term limits have been a disaster faster for the state it's complete nonsense it was admittedly a a strategy nationally by republicans to overturn the democratic stranglehold on many state legislatures and ironically play by the time the of term limits took effect in michigan the republicans already had control but there really was never any need for a purpose of term limits and i think i'm a very good example of that i served five terms terms ten years in the michigan house if i had been elected to my six term i would have been tied for number five in seniority in the house out of a hundred and ten people believe the many many legislators surfer decades just never was true your term limit of deal section what you lost her election i was i believe that's the right way for the public to decide when they legislate tour is not doing a good job vote him or her out of office at a general election beat him in a primary a or recall the the the constitution provides ample opportunity to take care of any problem the biggest problem i have with terminal imitation is that essentially let's the people in different district tell people in my district that i can't have the legislator i want and frankly they should mind their own business these other thing that's happened with term limits is lobbying has become one of the great growth industries in michigan they cliche knowledge is power is more than just a cliche it's true and the people with the real knowledgeable obvious absolutely i would also add to that that thee executive branch of government has gained power and the legislature's knowledge power influence has declined that's not good for the public gretchen whitmer has vast governmental experience and i think she may be the most confident democratic governor we will have had in a long long time you compare her really with john angler who's somebody you disagreed with a lot but nobody would argue with the concept of john angler.

"Non driving factors in studying rates that's very serious it it affects women in millennials pretty seriously and also the pricing of coordinator policies which would be like when you bundle you're policies and you're supposed to get a discount there's some question as to whether insurance companies are actually honoring honoring that in her press release she indicated she is dedicated to increasing transparency and strengthen consumer protections which is always a good thing sometimes not in the minds of republicans but certainly in the minds of drivers an auto insurance payers currently in michigan they're allowed to determined are premiums based on are education are homeownership occupation credit scores engendering marital status in michigan women are paying on average seventy nine dollars more per year than men one for the national average you're not paying less well that's not what that means the national average is i'm in ten dollars more for women than men so were way way above that a study last year found that men are more likely to drive well under the influence they're more likely to speed not wear a seatbelt an are responsible for more or severe crashes then women now the rationale the insurance companies used for why women have higher rates is the in eight severe crash and they events if that were more likely to suffer severe injuries or die probably because those big airbags are hitting us and more tinier they're gonna look into that and see what did they could get that change there are a number of states i think it's six of them do not allow gender to be a factor in figuring out premium rates yes so that is just ten generally related it to removing the salary history question that governor whitmer talked about what was it in the state of the state because past discrimination on women's wages should not leads to future discrimination because we make an average of what is it now just seventy nine cents if you're a white woman and i think it goes down to like fifty some sense if you're hispanic i mean it's just goofy which means we even pay more for we pay more for everything really but as it considering how much longer it takes us to make a dollar compared to a man man we we pay proportionately more fair everything really i think we get into april before we reach that pay equity day a story broke last year and i don't have it in front of me but it it kind of resonated with me because i'm widow this a year ago and it was about a widow who suddenly i saw her car insurance rates skyrocket just because she lost her husband and as a widow i concede the i drive even more careful not i wasn't careful before but did you know super carefully now and i i can't determined whether my rates went up because i changed vehicles sin entire policy changed at the same time my husband passed away so it's kind of apples to oranges but i am curious as to whether they did that it's illegal in michigan to discriminate based on gender unless it's part of a group of policy like if you're buying through your employer ploy or something like that so that's not a huge percentage of people most people by their individual policies michiganders' pay twice the rate of other states due to the 'em are generous medical coverage under the no fault requirements which i actually feel pretty good about i'd i'd like knowing that if something were to happen to me or something were to happen to someone that perhaps i hit that it's not gonna be capped off at you know just a few thousand dollars and then living in a couple of million dollars yeah off we quickly turns over new her wizard yes yes that is true we pay an average of about twenty six hundred dollars a year detroiter pay five thousand four hundred and four gene per year because of increased accidents and claims within the city that's terribly unfair and i know that a lot of detroit ers are claiming addresses outside of the city even though they leave within the city so it's forcing them into you know living a lie or they're not buying insurance at all which is even worse so there's something has to be done about that governor whitmer has charged the iss identifying all the factors used to set rates and making legislative recommendations after that they will also determined the insurance companies are actually reducing payments for uncoordinated bundle policies she's she also earlier went after they michigan catastrophic claims fund to actually find out where's all that money going 'cause it has been audited they operate is their own fiefdom and that each have been awful lot of your insurance premium and they basically basically just decide how much they wanna take from you and that's that's that is it one thing i like about this is it really offers the prospect of some bipartisan action this is the number one priority for republicans they think this is more important in fixing the roads according to the statements they made it the beginning of the legislative so so there could be some progress there and the governor i think sees this as an opportunity if we lower the insurance rates instead of spending all that money on insurance let's put that money into the roach i love that you used the word fiefdom but but you also make make a good point you know she what i what i really like about governor whitmer is that she has that experience that she could see opportunities with this bipartisanship and she knows how to kind of work that chessboard there i think you know i think she's always going come back to looking for ways to advance either the roads or education and if auto insurance reform is one way to do that that's great one thing i've been seeing is that a lot of people wanna do away with those 'em protections in healthcare you know the year ability the get that that coverage if you're injured in an accident and i i think that would be a shame because that is terrifying you know automobiles have this terribly destructive power on a human body and he combined that with our roads you have a formula for disaster one thing the state has done in the past which is helped a little bit on their auto insurance rates was they added a small charge on each policy to fund something called the automobile prevention fund an auto theft suspect special in the detroit area adolescent orange shirts bills and by cutting back on auto theft and really targeting the v organize these is that the joy riding teenagers these litter stealing cars performances specifically stripping them and a selling the pires or sending them overseas that had an impact on the rights of the state has done something positive but that happened i think prevention authority was put in the business like thirty five forty years ago and since then they've done a whole hell of a lot to fix the problem we could really get creative that like a self destruct button or something that like micro injector she by cutting passengers yeah yeah you're not you know how you're i phone if somebody steals it you could remotely wipe it and making unusable i'd it's like the same thing for my car my car i push a button and you exploded into the driver's seat i just want the whole thing to explode there of course that would that's not funny yeah and yet we laugh i know it sounds especially a purely for the parents of teenagers well i think a sacrifice making more like you know isis people are low enough okay we've had a lot of discussions about the twenty twenty elections in as we record this week's podcast camila harris is.

Who last you're introduced bipartisan legislation to advance the development of self driving cars, Senator thank you so much for joining us. The first of all what do you like? And what don't you like about these new guidelines? Well, I think the guidelines are pretty clear that we have to make sure that we have a framework to allow the technology to continue to move forward to existing vehicles safety laws don't allow an automobile without a steering wheel or without brake. Pedals, for example, you have these new technologies which will be piloted by advanced machine learning and AI systems will be literally piloted by machines.
