Amid surge in cases, Arizona readies new push to slow COVID-19 spread

"Nearly ninety percent of Arizona's I see beds are full Republican Governor Doug Ducey. ducey faces widespread outrage for downplaying the virus, and even obstructing local officials from acquiring masks in June as case numbers began to explode. Do see reverse course and allowed mayors to issue their own virus guidelines under growing pressure, but he resisted calls to pass a statewide mask mandate or reimposes stay at home order, which expired in May with little restriction on the state's reopening. Facing rising numbers June do see ordered bars and gyms to close again, but Arizona residents say the actions are too little too late. The family of a sixty five year old Mexican. American man who died of Covid, nineteen in Phoenix, is accusing Arizona. State officials of being directly responsible for his death in a scathing obituary in the Arizona Republic, the family of Of Mark, Anthony or Keesa wrote quote. His death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to jeopardize the health of Brown bodies through a clear lack of leadership refusal to acknowledge the severity of the crisis and inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize risk. This is or Qisas daughter Kristin an interview with A. Republican. Governor DC's got blood on a fan. He was late to close down the state. He was early to open X and. The manner in which he opened allowing things to go back as normal is, in my opinion, the reason why my dad is being buried today. We'll for more. We're going to Tucson to speak with a local leader. WHO's been standing up to Governor Doug Ducey. That's Mayor Ricky Romero. She is the first Latina and the first woman to be elected mayor of Tucson. She was previously. Tucson city council member for over a decade, the daughter of migrant workers we welcome you to democracy now Mayor Ramiro. Your thoughts on governor Ducey's responsibility. What do you want to see the state? OF ARIZONA DO? And what are you doing in Tucson? Good Morning Amy. Thank you so much for having me this morning. We have been in a state of crisis. Since governor ducey decided to hastily reopen the state. We were in a very good place. Coming to a plateau here in the city of Tucson relocated in Pima County in pima. Cownie, we were seeing twenty twenty four cases a day. It was a plateau now. We are seeing almost three hundred cases a day in Pima County. In a county of million people we. We are we see anywhere from five to twenty ICU beds, which is very very concerning in straining our doctors and nurses at our hospitals. We jumped up in front of Governor Ducey, a few mayors Mayor Gayle from Phoenix. Mayor Evans from flagstaff in myself Joe jumped ahead of the governor to call the stay at home. orders in to close down bars back in March He took our cue few days later, and with his executive order he tied the hands of mayors in cities and towns and county and county health departments throughout the state by preempting us from from doing anything that he wouldn't do. Most recently, he untied the hands of mayors. In counties throughout the state to do mandatory mask ordinances. Throughout the state, but what we have been seeing with Governor Ducey is a microcosm of what has been happening with trump in his federal response to this pandemic, which is tepid, a tepid response a pushback on science and what public health officials recommend that we do. Every day that governor Ducey Wade's. We see three thousand cases in Arizona and. And the crisis continues more lives lost, and so what we have been done doing here in Tucson is basically pushing the governor to do the right thing because it's a very real threat. If we do move ahead in front of him. The state legislature, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a bill about three years ago fourteen eighty seven that if any city does anything, any law that preempts the state that are stayed shared revenue could be pulled from us, and those are millions and millions of dollars. That, we could potentially lose and so in this crisis we see ourselves as mayors. In fear in fear for the lives of our communities in fear of for the inability for us to be able to do anything so, what mayors across Arizona and I have been doing his publicly pressuring the governor to the right thing. The one thing that he could do that could help is do. Is Institute a mandatory mask? Executive Order Statewide and he refuses to even do that.

"Bloomberg business of Sports show coming up this weekend, and I asked him what he thought. Abounds. The changes that he had undergone, and he basically said, I have an entirely new perspective on my family, an entire new entirely new perspective on the amount that I was traveling on the amount that I was away from home. I think people are thinking a lot about this. The longer that it goes on. I mean, if this goes on essentially 69 12 months Life changes, right? I know, But companies can have a way of saying Okay, look, I don't know. Look, if if if the whole workforce is saying I don't want to go back to the way we were right then I think Yeah, that's a game changer. I just I don't know. I'm being I don't know. Maybe I'm just being realistic. Yeah, I Yeah. I mean, I think it's when I agree with Joe. Like I feel Don't you feel like you have Ah, different perspective on your family. Totally. I've always loved them and all that, but I definitely had more time and more. Quality. I don't qualify that I've always loved them. I didn't want it to be like, you know, Well, the sudden villas I really like my family. I mean, that's always been there, but I've actually Had some quality time with him on a regular basis and entered during the week. Usually it didn't really happen. Did the same for me and tell me for sure. All right, watch what I'm going to do here. I've always loved Joe Nagy. Are you listening? Heisman, As you know, he played for the same formerly known as I turned on his Super Bowl ring exactly now known as the Washington football team. Let's go to Washington now and check in with Ryan. Take Beck with. Yep, That's right. I did it. Hey is, of course, Lindbergh. News political reporter. He joins us on the phone from the area of the nation's capital, the DMV as they call it, R T B How you doing? Good. That's not like the only time special football will be used to introduce not known for my pro football. Man fandom. So, Yeah. How you were doing okay, way are awaiting the president as you are, and we will take you down there As soon as we see him come to the podium. I've got half an eye on that This is as they all are. Ah, Big week in politics, and it feels like it's starting to heat up less than 100 days here to go before the presidential election. What do we need to know? Ryan? Well, I know that the clock is starting to run out for Trump to make a big game changer here. Early voting. The balance will be sent at once Carolina, which is the first state to send out balance one month from today, Um we're only 90 days from the election. The early voting is going to start in a lot of places by mid September. You're going to get a lot of going to start walking around, and I think that's why you saw the president do this kind of turn on a dime and changed his mind about what he thinks about mainland voting in just the state of Florida. Where he's really fallen behind on there's about 300,000 more Democrats find upto early vote if this cycle then Republicans, so I think he's starting to feel that pressure. You've seen the ads change up a little bit more quickly. And the Viking team is also putting out feelers for maybe expanding the bath going into states where they have a good appetite. So we are giving the team minute warning. So we are expecting to take everybody to the White House. Ryan, what do you wanna be watching out for when President Trump steps up to the podium there? I? You know what I'm keeping my eye on right now is his argument. He put a lot on this idea that you need to reopen. I think this is kind of a replay of the lock down argument. When he felt like around the block down, people would think That things weren't going well, and so he wanted us to not be under lock down. I think he's doing sort of similar logic schools. I don't think that's a good idea because I think that very people that he's most at risk of right now, which is suburban women. R. I not super jazzed about sending kids back to school right now, and if we sent it back, and it does go badly, That's not going to rebound. Well for him. Ryan Wade, get Ryan. We got to jump in because the president eyes getting ready to hold that press conference. Let's take you to Washington. Like to begin by providing an update on my administration's actions. To protect American workers as we battle the China virus since the virus escaped China My administration has enacted $3 trillion in economic relief. It's been very, very successful on you so that by the numbers were issued yesterday and the day before As to used car sales and auto production. They've been incredible numbers, actually, shockingly incredible. We've been negotiating in good faith with Democrat leaders in the House to extend relief payments were negotiating right now as we speak, and we'll see how that works out. But Democrat leaders put partisan demands aside. We would reach an agreement very quickly. They happen, it would happen very quickly. In the meantime, my administration's exploring executive actions to provide protections against eviction. Eviction is a big problem. Very unfair to a lot of people. It wasn't their fault that this Virus came from a faraway land. As well as additional relief to those who are unemployed as a result of the virus. Very importantly, I'm also looking at a term limited suspension of the payroll tax. Something that is great support from many, many sides, especially some of our top Economists and some people that we have great respect for So we're looking at a suspension of the payroll tax. The Democrats are primarily interested in a one tree in dollar bailout of the Poorly run states. We have some states and cities. You know more. We have to go through names, but they've been very poorly run over the years and we can't go along with the bailout money. We're not going to go along with it. Especially since is not covert related. Earlier today, I met with a great governor. Arizona governor. Doug Ducey has really done a fantastic job beyond even the covert situation which you've been reading about as it pertains to Arizona. A state that is a model for applying a science based approach to the decreasing cases and hospitalizations without implementing A punishing locked down Arizona's record in reducing the spread of the virus while maintaining hospital capacity. And allowing society to continue functioning and functioning very nicely, very successfully. Is an example. That shows how our path forward can work in other states. Arizona has a record. And a record really, to be proud of its reduced the number of daily new cases by over 75%. Cut the positivity rate in half and reduced our visits by 2/3 all the while keeping the economy functioning and functioning really well. When cases surged in June, the vice president and Dr Burke Visited Arizona to consult with Governor Ducey. They had long consultations with Governor Juicy and his staff and the vice president has been in constant contact ever since My administration's also collaborating with the state and local officials across the South and Midwest to provide similar guidance. We had a great relationship with the representatives in Arizona, and it's been such a successful Endeavor. The federal government is supplied or delivered more than 400 million pieces of personal protective equipment to Arizona, along with nearly 70,000 vials of them disappear. We've provided over one. Excuse me. We've provided over $18 billion in economic support to Arizona, including more than $8.6 billion to support over 80,000 small businesses.

Arizona seeing highest number of new coronavirus cases per capita

"Joining now from where things stand is to reject director for the Arizona Public Health. Association will humble. He's also the former director of the Arizona Department of Health Services and I know that. We've got data reportings very lumpy, and we're coming off a holiday weekend, and so the picture is not as clear on this Tuesday, as it normally would, because of those reporting delays, but this jumped out to me as of today Arizona not the cove infections per capita of any state, but also the most of any state has ever had. We hit five hundred and twenty eight per million, new. York topped out at five nine on April tenth. What what does it look like to you in Arizona, right now. That really says it all, doesn't it? I mean everybody knows what happened in New York and now it's happening in Arizona and who would have thought that it would happen in a state like Arizona but his shows you that the policy decisions that you're elected. Officials make have real life consequences and the decisions, the decisions in May and early June or lack of decisions are really what set in the cascade of events that ended up where we are today with a graph just saw. We're also seeing an inflection point in deaths in Arizona. We saw it also just I just saw about an hour ago. I think Texas reported its highest fatality level. I'm a very long time today. There's been this lag. Obviously between cases and battalions were catching more cases. There's a hope that fatalities won't be as high right now. What are you seeing the fatality data? Where do you think this is going? So. There's a couple of things that may be moderating the death rate here in Arizona. Number one is that the new cases are really exploding in twenty and thirty year old people who are. Less likely to end up in an ICU bed, and less likely to die. It happens, but it's less likely the other thing is that clinicians are getting better at treating people for covid. Nineteen at the beginning was just supportive care now there's a couple of medications that can improve the course of the illness, so as physicians learn a little bit more about how to treat illness I think that may be working in our favor a little bit and finally. I I'm hoping that this also represents an improvement in infection control within assisted living and skilled nursing facilities I. Don't know that for a fact. I do know that they are trying harder than they were and personal. Protective equipment is more available, but really there's no substitute for weekly testing of staff that work in those facilities. I don't think that that's happening. In terms of testing seeing, it's really maddening. We're seeing bottlenecks again, and you're seeing that in that positivity rate going up, and it's upright now. It's almost thirty percent I think in Arizona I mean the the recommendation the are you want the positivity right below three percent, which basically shows that you're testing enough? The MARICOPA county reported Covid, nineteen positivity rate of twenty eight point eight percent. This is the Phoenix Mayor tweeting. We've seen testing sites where people waited for more than eight hours in one hundred and ten degree heat to get tested. This is unacceptable. Arezzo needs more testing and context racing to slow the spread. This seems like a major major and acute failure right now as as the state tries to get a hold of this. positivity rate is off the charts, and as you said, it needs to be ten times lower than it is right now. We're at twenty five percent positive. The next highest state I think is Texas and Florida. They're in the the teens, so we're much higher that we need to be on that regard. The other thing is that our turnaround time on these tests is really pretty bad like we're looking at turnaround times between getting A. A sample collected from a patient and getting those results back from the lab of seven eight nine, even fourteen days, and what that means. Is that your contact tracing capacity? Your contact tracers can't do their job because by the time they get the data. The patient has already either gone back to work infected their roommates or co workers, and and it doesn't matter how good contact tracing capacity is if you're getting the results that late. It's going to be ineffective at Saint. We've gotta just get more tests, but faster testing. You know months ago. There's a lot of debate about the Swedish model Sweden was one of the few countries that had had you know. Had the virus didn't shutdown did close some things here? There? Make some efforts, and there was some question about. Can you avoid the worse consequences both economically and also of sort of social and physical and emotional health of lockdowns, and I your piece today basing no, it's not it's a cautionary tale. It was sort of a failed experiment. It does seem to me. We're headed towards the sun belt. Sweden experiment in the US I mean governor Ducey does seem reluctant to take any more steps and he has. We're just GONNA. Find out how bad it can get back. I Isaac, we adopted the Swedish model right around Memorial Day to be honest with. I've said that publicly that I think what we're really doing is going down the Swedish road and. And what we see is we can learn. The previous segment you talked about learning for mothers. You know I this is an example where we could have learned from others and I hope other people learn from us because this experiment isn't going well.

"That is. Did you hear this? We do it every day at 11 20 so make sure when you're jumping in the car to go to lunch you put us on would get you informed of the biggest stories. I've got to tell you. The biggest. Those primaries were yesterday, the sheriff's race still down to the wire. This thing with Tom Hatton Mountainside Fitness has bigger implications around the shutdown order because it's an arbitrary thing, and that's what the judge said. You have the right to shut things down. Absolutely. The judge. The governor has that right. But if you set standards for reopening, you can't say we're not going to re open yet. But when we do here is the standard. If that industry said we're meeting that standard right now, you have to let them reopen. And I think that's going to have a ripple effect in other states and in other industries I am not anti governor do see is a matter of fact. I am I promise you I am as pro Governor Ducey as there is around. I think he's a great man. I think he's a brilliant business man. I think he's honest and I think he's a very, very good person. All of that. I believe to be true. I just think this was handled wrong and whether it was handled wrong by him personally or his people being a governor that's known as pro business and industry and what you've done for the state. To appear as if you are impeding any business from opening. Even when they're meeting. The safety protocol does not match up with what your record says or what your reputation says. And what Tom Hatton did. I got to give him credit. I think he did it the right way. He didn't do it with personal animosity, he said. I believe they're wrong. A judge said, Well, it's your burden of proof, and you haven't proven anything. So he went back and got a team of five experts epidemiology in industrial hygiene. He went back to the judge and said, Well, there didn't put this in place like they were supposed to. And here's my team of people to prove. That were safe. He impressed the judge where the judge sided with the fitness industry. So I think Tom Hatton did it the right way. So now what I think should happen and will happen. Is that the two sides will come together and work together and they're going to put it behind them and Tom Hatton fighting for his employees more than anything else because he was paying them while they were off. So he wants to make sure they're able to go back to work and for his fitness centers for his gyms to be able to have their clients back in because physical fitness right now it's more about mental fitness is well. Going to the gym. For many, myself included. For those of you that run. Understand Running is your release. It is a way to get those endorphins out. It's a way to clear your mind. And it's a sense of accomplishment that you could only get in these situations and thank God they're gonna be opening again soon. I'm anxious for that, You know, all toe happen. In a few moments yesterday. Primary day We'll talk a little bit about the primaries and reopening. You know, one thing we haven't even mentioned today are the new covert 19 numbers. We're going to talk about them as well. So stick around. Cool touch air conditioning another 110 degree day today, realising their motto, and their goal is to keep you cool this summer. They have waved their diagnostic feet is $59 diagnostic fee. Do yourself a favor. Take advantage of this. If there's an issue with your existing system, they're going to fix it for you so that you don't have a breakdown during the summer months because it's a health risk..

"Chan who was one of the clean elections Commissioner Tom Collins, executive director of that same organization I'd like to start with a question to you Amy about the selection of commissioners. I know that there are five commissioners and no more than two from party. No more than two from a single of county, which basically constrains this being Maricopa County dominated and your appointed by people from both parties who are in high office. I know you were appointed by and this I found this. This got to be a story in here somewhere you were because the normal assumption be the Republican leaders will appoint Republicans, the Democrats will appoint Democrats while you were a Republican appointed by Katie Hobbs. Who was then the now secretary state, but who is at the time the majority leader of the demo. Kratz in the state Senate. Is there a story in there somehow? Well, the only story is that it goes by state law as far as you know, she had to appoint somebody who would be I think Tom, and you can correct me if I was wrong, either a Republican or an independent because I believe at the time we had two Democrats already on the commission. Okay. So so she was constrained there. What if there was some there was a kind of an out of sequence of selection. It preceded Katie hubs choice of you. Right. But I mean, hopefully, I really had so much respect for her. And just because you know, registered are as I like to say just I don't know I call him ours in dis of for reference does because I'm an R, and she's the, you know, I think we have things in the similar light. You have a lot of similar values when it comes to integrity, and our publicly elected officials are, you know, campaign, finance, and obviously clean. Elections. And I think that's probably why she selected. He I hope it wasn't. I don't think it was under protest. But she appointed he as a Republican if make such of somebody broke, the sequence, it was somebody prior to Katie Hobbs in your instance, you probably know governor governor brewer pointed a democrat toward the end of her term on the commission as a lawyer in town named David Meyer. He's immediate past chairman. So that's what that set up. The that's the sequencing issue. You're staggered right now, there are the term staggered. So that when somebody makes an appointment there's only a single vacancy. Well, no, that's a great point. Because we have governor do still needs to make his appointment. Our chairman from two years ago, hit LA he you know, is has not been his replacement has not been appointed. And. Secretary Hobbs is is slated to make an appointment to so. Layers position. And I think the thinking is that I governor Ducey must appoint the person to fill the position of Germans Hitler. So so you're done to three commissioners right now or. If I. Law's written the the background on this is that if you don't get replaced, you essentially are a holdover, and you would have to formally resign say so you serve until you replacements. And so right now, we have basically, but you know, honestly, I mean from my perspective. I mean, I look at a staggering great and the and of generally five terms are great both Fisher tiddler in Commissioner Meyer started quite late. They started in the middle of term that had already because of the timing argument. So I, you know, I think the Chris stability and and experience I mean, you've now got a chairman who's very capable been on the commission for four years whose name is Mark Kimball. He's from Tucson. And then we have we have the benefit right now having to former chair persons there is a requirement as there is with the redistricting commission that it not be somebody who was a party leader. And so you have to be somewhat removed from partisan politics. You can't have a precinct committee person or elected official elected official. The general rule of you know, there's there may be other things the phone the different categories, but the general rule, Amy. Go ahead. I was just gonna ask in in your experience does the commission ten to act in a nonpartisan manner. Absolutely. I mean, you know, knowing who what the party registration is of each person it. Always all agree. But I don't view it as being along party lines at all it's more about personal experience in many cases. But I feel like more times than not very unified in how we approach things because we're just we're following the law with only the policy of maintaining our integrity in our elections in the state of Arizona as much as you can from our position on clean elections, as well, as you know, I really, you know, of course, the commissioners are the appointed, you know, members of this commission, but undertones executive director ship. I mean, our daughter education program has just become so strong. And so by Brent. And I think you seen that every Commissioner for years, regardless of party affiliation has really supported the mission of clean elections as dated by the law by the act itself. And. I would encourage anyone listening. I mean, our our meeting all streamed live online, they're also archived online. You can definitely take a look if you're an election. Geek, like, I am you might enjoy it and or come downtown in attend. I mean, it's very approachable. I think the meetings or great education in what we're doing. Of course, I have a question I've been dying to ask you, and I think you are uniquely qualified to answer this question. Probably nobody else quite has the perspective on this. Because in addition to being a Commissioner, you were formerly election strict or for the state of Arizona. The elections director is appointed. By a secretary of state who is will always probably be either a democrat or Republican elected in partisan elected who hires a state elections director. We also have this commission that from everything you've said and everything the weights it was structured to be as nonpartisan as humanly possible wouldn't make more sense for the state elections director to be part of the clean elections commission rather than be somebody who was appointed by partisan elected official. I never actually have even thought about that. I don't know, you know, our laws are structured in a way that this secretary of state is our chief elections officer for the state and. The election director is the one who kind of ministers out for the secretary now in the past like under ten Bennett who was the secretary of state who hired me to be election director and all the previous secretaries that person was even if they were registered are or d in the past. I feel like those folks were it's kind of like John McCain if I could be so bold as the hope that we could all be like that, you know, country above party stayed above party. You know, those folks were not political people, even though they were working for secretaries who were elected in part of an election. If that makes sense we've had we've had some very very good people who acted in nonpartisan way as elections director. I must say, However, I think we're lucky in that what the scenario that. I described is this isn't true in other states. I can think of Florida, for example, I think of other states where it hasn't worked out. Well, and we are we. We are dependent on that on secretaries of state who continue to appoint people who are dispositions independent just sort of just as a structure, it seems to me that we would like elect the administration of and I say this recognizing of course, that elections are really run at the county level, but but but the elections director, and and in broad sense. A secretary state have some have overall kind of I'm not quite sure how the elections are run by the counties but in race supervised or at least coordinated it by the state elections director. And I to me it just being an independent commission would there's there's a structure there. And it seems to me to be logical. I don't agree with you. I mean, I in fact when I was at the secretary of faith office. This is not something that secretary Bennett ever necessarily wanted to do. But it even occurred to us because we had a very good working relationship with clean elections at that time, which you know, under secretary Reagan wasn't always the case. And I now that we have a new secretary. I think that's changing. But at the time, I really felt like it might be worthwhile to put all campaign finance at least under the clean elections commission. And maybe even beep it up to create an ethics. The legislation, but you know, you have to have the political fortitude in the state legislature to do that. And I don't think we've ever had that this. This is why we have citizen initiatives. To get things that that most people would agree is reasonable, but would never pass muster with the partisan legislature. We'll break it at this point. We'll return in just a minute to conclude our discussion clean elections in the think-tank KTAR with back in just a minute. Listen on the radio.

Arizona teacher strike: Union boss warns walkout could be 'long haul'

"So if you remember how it went. Read for read said, we wanna raise the governor said, you know, what you're right. So he went to the legislature, president of the Senate speaker house and said can we get this done? And they said, you know, what we can get it done. We're gonna get them the twenty percent they've asked for over three years. We're going to do it. So the governor came back a couple of days later and said you're going to get the raise. Well, Joe Thomas who had taken over the movement by then who is the head of the unions in Arizona week as they are. And Noah carve, Ellis, the self socialist and guiding Derrick Harris was no longer here. Rebecca Garelli on these red. Fred people said, we don't believe you, Mr. governor, Mr. MRs legislators, we don't believe you. So we're going to walk out of school anyway, and they did seventy thousand people strong. And a lot of you don't know this, and I can't drive this home enough. The legislature worked on a budget that over a three year period gives teachers at twenty percent raise half of it in year one. And they were working on passing this budget until the wee hours of the morning. Do you know that leadership of red? Fred Joe Thomas, Noah, Carvalhas, Derrick Harris, all of them with their friends and in the democratic caucus in both the house and the Senate tried to kill that budget. Do you know that they want a governor Ducey gone so badly that they tried to kill the twenty percent raises for the teachers? So they could say it never happened. Like, they said it wasn't going to. And I will I will respectfully cast out the invitation one more time Joe Thomas. Derrick Harris has gone Joe Thomas miss corral. Noah Corvallis, any of the leaders of Red Front, even the new one J Budo any of you out there if I'm lying about this. Please call me out send me an Email. I will read your E mail verbatim on the air. You tried to kill the budget. You tried to stop the raises from going through to the wee hours of the morning. And when the Republicans passed it anyway, Joe Thomas ran to a podium and congratulated the teachers in attendance saying that it wasn't the dirtbag legislature or the dirtbag governor that got it done. It was the teachers in attendance that got this done. Did he tell those teachers in attendance that he was working behind the scenes to try to kill the budget? Did they do that? They didn't they didn't. Well, one of their five demands was no new tax cuts. Now, why in the world at teacher organization as long as they're getting the increases they asked for give a damn about tax cuts shows, you why this political I'm bringing all of this up because tomorrow is the day. Day. Tomorrow is debate in the legislature on a couple of tax cut measures. And they have been red. Fred has been imploring teachers to leave school. Take the day off sign up to speak in the legislative sessions in the committees. So that their two minutes can be heard and they can show their protest. Now, how many teachers are going to do this? I don't know. But if I were you, and I had a student or a grand son or daughter in the valley schools. I would be asking the administration my kid's classrooms going to double in size because teachers are taking the day off. Are you calling in a a more than usual amount of substitute teachers because teachers are taking the day off? If they can question you if they can come after you and ask you why you're taking your child out of school to excuse an absence. You certainly can do it for a teacher. Why are you taking the day off? Well, that's your business. Well, I tried saying that about my students when I was taking my student out of school. And I said, it's none of your business. Why I'm taking my kid out? And you made me explainer was an unexcused absence. I'm not trying to set up a war between teachers, and parents, I'm saying that the teachers and parents should be working together and red Fred claims, they're all about the students. Well, if you're walking out of school to go to a committee hearing in the legislature, you're ignoring the children. Now, your argument is going to be long term. It's better for the children. Well, that's what you have lobbyists for you pay. Joe you pay Joe a lot of money. He makes a lot of money to lobby on your behalf. Let him go to the legislature and state your case, you're gonna take schooltime off really. And how about May Day. Why don't some of you start asking your kids what they know about red? Fred what their teachers are saying about red. Fred, why don't you start asking in your school if the principal and the administration is going to give excused absences to teachers on may first or May Day to walk out in. Solidarity with teachers across the country. Maybe if I were you I'd try to find that out. Contractually? They're not allowed to do that. If they do they are in violation of the verbiage of their contract and could lose their jobs. I am in favour of teacher raises fair teacher compensation. I admire the job that teachers do across the board. Even if you're in support of red, Fred if you're a good teacher. Thank you for the great job you do. But if you're walking off the job for political reasons, you are ignoring the very students you claim to be fighting for and we haven't even gotten into and probably don't have time to get into the strong arm bully tactics behind the scenes because tomorrow is Wednesday. Tomorrow's the day that all teachers are supposed to wear red. And if you're one of the teachers that dare not wear red man, they write your name down. You're not a team player. You're not with us. You're against us. It's like being in high school all over again. It's the breakfast club all over again. That's what red Red's turned into. That's what they've become. I've dared them. I've challenged come on the show. Call me a liar proved me, I'm lying. I'll admit I'm wrong if I'm wrong. They haven't said word one they've gone underground. They have tried to. Hide from me.

Hacienda HealthCare closing unit where woman was raped and gave birth

"Hacienda healthcare. We've been talking about this ever since a woman back in December gave birth to a little boy. The unfortunate part is that woman was sexually assaulted. She was incapacitated. She's been incapacitated. The majority of her life. So we've been talking about this place for a number of weeks now. Well, we just found out earlier today, the hacienda healthcare board of directors. They are going to shut down a partial bit of that healthcare facility. The they determined that they can operate continue to operate the intermediate care facility for the intellectually disabled, which is where this woman was being cared for. They have closed the unit where the incapacitated woman was raped. Well, it's about time. I mean. Yeah, you close it down and. I think we're seeing is this place is starting to get shut down piece by piece, and yeah, it should happen. It should happen. Not only because an incapacitated woman was raped. They're not only because she gave birth. They're not only because nobody knew she was pregnant until she was delivering. Yeah. This comes from the top up, the CEO is a total scum. You haven't heard a peep from that guy. Because he knows what happened. He knows taking money fraud. Sexual harassment charges against him. The guy is a disgusting human being and as soon as all this stuff happened. He bailed. So what happens no-one's running the place? I mean, really there's no CEO's. Nobody running the place you got to close it down. And I know it's easier said than done you're gonna have to find a place to bring some of these patients to that's not the easiest thing. But governor Ducey has started to I think close this place down. He's looking for the attorney general what what charges are we gonna file against hacienda? He's he he made an executive order the other day that said, hey, if you're in this type of business in healthcare, and all that we're going to put you through classes every year just real quick. I just want to make sure everybody understands this is not by Doug ducey's order. It is not this is the board of directors. Right order that they cannot run this particular side of the facility, but that doesn't mean this is over allegations still continues the investigation will probably uncover. I'll. A lot of stuff that we didn't know before this hoc- into healthcare. This story is not over by a long shot, and they still have another deadline to meet tomorrow. Yeah. I mean, there are unable to get anybody to run the hospital, and they say they can't afford to either. And that's bull because they paid. You know, how many hundreds of thousands of pages of the CEO he paid CEO Timmons six hundred grand. Yeah. It would cost a private company to come in less than five hundred grand you, and they said, well, we don't have that kind of wait a minute. You were just paying this guy one hundred grand anymore. There's an open a salary there. So sixty the sixty bed intermediate care facility that part of hacienda healthcare where the patient was raped and recently gave birth that part of it is getting shut down. And I gotta tell you. Now. It's about the care for those patients. They have to find good care because I don't know if they were getting good care over there. And I say this all the time there are plenty of nurses, and doctors and staff that work at hacienda, upstanding citizens. They're good people. You know, they're they're caring for people who can't care for themselves and most I'm sure have done a great job. But one low-life was able to do what he did. And. Thank goodness. He's in jail. He ain't going anywhere. And he probably won't go anywhere for a while. But there were some good people at hacienda. So are people going to start losing their job? Yes. Is that is? But that's where you got to go with this place. You've gotta shut it down. And maybe you just shut it down in parts. So you've got this part of the hospital. That's going to get shut down. All right. Let's take care of those patients and put them in a place that's going to be better than this. And then let's work on the next part of the hospital. And then we'll find a place for for those people. And then let's do this to the next part of. I think he got I think you've got to gradually dismantle hacienda healthcare. There are certain things or certain. There are certain problems that arise that you just can't recover from. I don't know how you recover from something like this with which is such an unbelievable story. Such terrible story. Such a heartbreaking story. I I don't know how anybody in good faith, unless you want to change the name and try to stay in business. But you've gotta come. You've gotta come before the governor. You gotta come before the state you've got to deal with an investigation. You've gotta deal with a deadline. I wonder if this is just the beginning of the end, and they're just going to try to stop this train. But you can't do it. It's not like a convenience store or restaurant where you just shut the doors. You lock it. And nobody can can be served. You have people here that are dependent. And I mean, literally and figuratively dependent on the staff in this facility. You can't just shut it down. So they are moving now to transport and and transition these people into other facilities, but that's not easy either. Now is that something you said really made me think you can't recover from this. Okay. What exactly does that mean? Instead of. It just being like a blanket statement that I'm making he can't recover. What does that mean? Well, put it this way. Do you think they're going to get new patients in? Do you think there's a family out there that if a tragedy happens to their child or a loved one, and they need this type of help? And they say, well, let's go to hacienda healthcare. I don't think. So I don't think so no way. No way, there's worries that are just become so big, and it becomes associated with such a bad deal that Hocine into healthcare will probably be one of them in my estimation. I I'm not saying that it will. I'm just saying it'll be one of those stories that you remember because it is just so unbelievable. How women was sexually assaulted and gave birth to a child and no one knew about. I mean, this is how big we live here in the valley in Arizona, right. If our job is to sift through the news every day, there are places like this across the country that have battened down the hatches because of this story thinking to do we have something like this going on? That's how big of a ripple effect. It has gone across the country that other institutions other healthcare facilities will many new are saying we need to make sure this doesn't happen

"Remainder of the term. And he's made some very convincing point. I've committed to serving at least through the second session of the one hundred fifteen th congress, I do know I will not seek the seat in twenty twenty or any other office in the future. And full disclosure. I've known Senator cov quite some time. We had some mutual friends family friends. I like Senator. Welcome solid, man. Good person. Glad that he he was there. I wish he would serve more. I think he would do a good job. I think he's a decent. Politician in this day and age where there aren't a ton of those and no one should be surprised by the fact that he is in fact, leaving at the end of this year, he said he was going to he sent a letter saying he was going to telegraph the punch. Yeah. He he's keeping his word. And but now it becomes the now what? And and you can officially now start speculating about who governor Ducey will appoint to serve out the final two years because I shouldn't even say final two years. This this gets complicated. The term Senator McCain's seat was not up for re election till twenty twenty two cracked six year term. Uh-huh. Because of the timing of his passing. The next time you, and I get a chance to vote on that seat will actually be twenty twenty you vote early on it and whoever wins that election. We'll have to run again in two years for a six year term. So they will only be running. They will be running in twenty will be electing in two thousand twenty for a two year term does that make sense instead of six years. Yeah. Because because the Senate seats are staggered. Okay. And the cinema seat that just one was the flake seat. Not. I see a lot of people get those confused. Well, it's understandable. So they are staggered six year terms that was done on purpose that way. So so the now what there's a lot of speculation. There's names that are being thrown around. And I think that there's a lot of political calculations that are going on. You can't take politics out of politics who is going to serve that seat out. And who governor Ducey names to serve the next two years is going to say something about governor Ducey do you what I mean? What I mean about that? Yep. It's his his legacy. Even though he's not gone yet. It's still makes up part of his legacy and his contribution to Arizona in the decision reflects upon him. Yes, we will continue to make like the mob. Hey, you introduced me to this guy. You're on the hook for right now. There's a certain I agree. There's also the political machinations. That's a big word that say, I does anybody think they can predict what the political environment looks like in twenty twenty. The next general. There are people out there that think that they know what's going to happen to people have lost your ever loving minds that crystal ball two years from now figured out what the world looks like much less our politics, but I still believe and no one is there's nothing that he has said or anyone else has ever said that makes me think governor Ducey he doesn't want be senators e. Oh, really? Do you think that's his next step? Can he appoint himself could? I don't think he will that would be cystic. Well, not just that. There's there's precedent for that. He won't because of the outcome of the election. In which Katie Hobbs one. A democrat won the secretary of state. I am I getting things right. Katie home secretary state, which means that if governor Ducey were to resign to become Senator she would become governor handing the governorship over to a democrat. I think once that whole tight race was determined and finished. He went darn it. There goes that idea darn it. We kind of had that plan. And now, we gotta go to plan B. And what does it look like? And who is the person that serves for the next two years going to be strong enough to win an election in front of a electorate in twenty twenty. I mean that has to be part of the calculation unless you're putting another placeholder it that says under serving for two years. I ain't running for this office. That'd be kind of a waste wouldn't it. Wouldn't it be a waste of time and energy? And by that argument was. Was Senator Kyle waste. No. I don't think. So because we needed him in there for a reason he had already been there before he knew what was going on. You know, those kind of things is Martha mcsally sitting by her phone right now waiting for it to ring is she doing one of these like keeps looking down like is the ringer on. Just wanna make sure we have a good signal. Are we are we going to good spot right now? I don't wanna miss a call. Plug it in because we can't let this thing. Go below seventy five percent battery. Okay. Because I don't want to me. Do you think that's the world season? I mean, maybe not to that extent. But it's got to be on her mind twenty four seven. Yeah. Listen. We know that per the letter that Senator Kyle his resignation letter that he sent to the governor. That one of the reasons he gave for doing this right now again, which I think was in the plan all along was so that governor Ducey can appoint someone. Who can join the new congress when they are sworn in in January. I think it makes sense. And so the new person can can come in with the freshman class for like a better drink can start school on day one. Yes. But that means governor Ducey needs to name someone quickly. So that person can he can't wait the day before the inauguration day before swearing in day. I see nuggets wearing day they can jump on a plane. Get there. Fast Senator Kyle stepping down leaving our Senate seat open again. And who will governor Ducey appoint to that seat to fill out the remainder of the two years? We're also going to talk a little bit later about the lawsuit that still going on arguing that governor Ducey can't appoint someone for two years, and that we must have an election for whoever that Senator is that might also throw a another wrench into the deal is any are any of you having trouble finding a Starbucks d do you ever find yourself saying only there was a Starbucks nearby? No. It's like McDonalds a bit. I swear if there's not one on every corner there's two on every corner.

"Very convincing point. I've committed to serving at least through the second session at the one hundred fifteen th congress, I do know I will not seek the two thousand twenty or any other office in the future. The second session ends in December. So that means governor Ducey is set to a point. Another Senator, I guess you could say, and this is not a conspiracy theory Senator Kyle was named to that seat. So that he could go and vote for Justice. Kevin. Because they knew that vote would be back close may have an empty seat. Yeah. That's the only reason he went there. He's not proposing legislation. He's like Senator Kyle I respect Senator. He went there for one reason one reason only and he's leaving at the end of December, hell or high water. He's not interested in being the Senator any longer. He went as a placeholder and to vote for Justice cavenaugh, period. Full stop. I I don't even know, you know, in his candid moments Senator Kyle go. Yeah. That's pretty much it. I get it. So we are expecting maybe before January first that governor Ducey would name a second replacement to Senator McCain's seat to fill out the remainder of the term that person. But then again have to run in twenty twenty right? That is when we would have a special election here in Washington. Yeah. But that's when they but isn't McCain seat until two thousand twenty two. Yes. Yeah. Exactly. So it would be on the ballot regular Kerala. So should he appoint Martha mcsally? She ran a good campaign. She ran a solid campaign, and she got a ton of votes over a million. I mean, so a million people here in the state of Arizona said that they want her to be one of their elected senators, so should governor Ducey do you think he will appoint Martha mcsally to the Senate even though she lost the race? What are your thoughts on that? I do you think that that? He would go there is there. I mean that seems like a logical kind of decision is there. More like politics went on behind the scenes, the not well, there's a couple of issues. Okay. What's at governor? Ducey is going to care how this affects governor Ducey. How does it affect governor Ducey is he seen as appointing someone who lost an election is he seen as appointing someone who the majority of voters rejected. Is he seen as putting a placeholder in? So that he can run for Senate is he, you know, there's a lot of I think governor Ducey cares. How this makes him look because the Senator Kyle appointment made him look statesmanlike doesn't make him look bad though. Do you think it makes them look bad to put Martha mcsally in that position? I don't think it does. I don't think it does. There was a point in time where yeah. Oh, you're putting a loser in that spot. They couldn't even win the race on there. I think that makes it harder for her to win reelection. I to win an election because he wouldn't have been elected to that office. Well, but, but I think that like you you put her in there for two years, she gets that experience, and she could be a very viable candidate for that seat in two thousand twelve whoever is going to be in that seat. Absolutely most likely run for it. When it comes up in two thousand twenty but I think that we're living in some some really divided times polarizing times. But when you look at the country governor Ducey smart enough to look at the demographic changes in Arizona hunt, say two years from now, Martha mcsally gets even less votes than she got missile who who wouldn't then who would be another viable option against who. There is no big name Republican in the state of Arizona. If that's the question, it would be a relative unknown. We've heard about his chief of staff we've heard about other state officials that governor Ducey could appoint but does that make him look good? Well, here's the way you would look at it. If you look at the results of this election. Kirstin cinema ran as a moderate as a working across the aisle as a. A centrist politician in some way, shape or form. And that was a winning pitch. Do you appoint someone to that office? Who is a Trump acolyte stand on stage chant lock her up. And what does that look like in two thousand twenty if you look at the demographic changes in state of Arizona that's losing in two thousand twenty. Okay. So then the opposite of that. Then would be to put somebody in that position who relatively few Arizonans. No. And let them let them tell their narrative. Let them identify who they are to the voters as opposed you Martha mcsally whether she likes it or not is a Trump acolyte. I get your point chain on stage with them that changed. But that was it. Well, I I don't have. I don't know the answer to this. I honestly think that if he were to name Martha mcsally like I'd be okay with that. I would be I thought again, she she is she fought a good fight in Arizona in a lot of people like her. I don't know if I have deemed theory out all the political angles because to me, what seems like what could be very straightforward kind of solution isn't always forward. You don't want to name someone to the seat who you think can't win it. You don't think in the election twenty twenty. I think there's a chance she could. But again, she lost this one and she lost. If you again, if you understand she lost Maricopa County PM's fan, I get ya. And why would mirror COPA county and Pima county vote for Martha mcsally next election. Let's ask our listeners it what what do you think? If governor Ducey were to name, Martha mcsally to the that's going to be vacated by Kyle here sometime soon. Good idea about idea, or do you have another name who you think might be a good fix.

So that that's a little bit over the top. I think you'd agree. And yet that Kennedy one one of the reasons the governor Ducey who is running for reelection got three hundred thousand more votes than excelling. And it did it wasn't a nail biter is because he was able to retain and attract the conservative vote, so very nasty primary in Arizona. And Sally never reached out to the conservatives in any significant or. Serious way. And that's important. What happened? And it's up to the candidate to unite the party, it's up to the candidate to bring the base out. And she failed to do that. Mr. Beduso will tell you that we invited her on this program? A week or two weeks before the election, and she didn't come on. Mr. Keller who ran in Nevada for reelection. We invited him to come on the program is campaign. Didn't even respond is that right rich. And we invited. I'm Laxa to come onto the show. He lost his governor's race. They said he never got the message that was like on a Thursday or Friday. So we'll come on Monday, and they ignored us. And he lost. I'm not saying that's why they lost. But that just goes to show you I can tell you Brian mass too. I like who is my congressman where my our Florida home, and who I've supported strongly encourage people to vote from even now he wouldn't come on the program has people said we're trying to attract moderates. Okay. When you run away from basic principles. It's a problem when you buy the left's characterization of your base has being right wing. We're not right wing. Where constitutionalists, we believe in liberty? We believe in private property rights. We have faith we believe in family when you do things like that you hurt yourself. You do. Now one in the future. So it doesn't bother me. I mean, I'm here. I'm going to be here. But it bothers me that now this this this woman who got elected in Arizona will be part of the the Schumer team, and she's part of the left wing hack crowd. And it's amazing that somebody like that can get elected that just shows you how weak MC Sally was now they keep talking about Trump Trump, this Trump that Trump this. What MC Sally blue that race? In addition to this other stuff that was going on which contributed to which I said. Do you ever notice the state of the liberal media and wonder how it got where it is today? We used to have journalists who search for the truth, the objective truth who brought you the news stories that matter they didn't interpret it. They didn't give it their their spin. But it doesn't happen. Much anymore. Today. Doesn't. Now, most people recognize when President Trump does something well, and they'll point out when they disagree with them. That's the way the system supposed to work. So why is it that.

"Eight six six ninety redeye. He is earning. I'm Gary McNamara. Welcome in good morning. John kyle. Yeah. So the governor of Arizona has selected John Kyle a retired Senator to take the c- that was left open after the death of John McCain. And governor Ducey it has been rumored that do see could run as that seat will be filled by Kyle at least until twenty twenty and the governor is stepping down as governor. He's not running. He's not going to run for office at this time. And people were asking was actually on the list governor Ducey, whether you know, he would appoint himself to Senator McCain's seat, and he said, no. But this makes more sense because John Kyle is retired. He's in his seventies. He could serve until twenty twenty even beyond that. But there won't be a special election in two thousand twenty and then it will get back to its normal cycle for that seat in twenty twenty two. So could governor Ducey run Ford in in the special election in two thousand twenty many believe that he just might we might be right in a prediction that we don't make a lot of predictions. And I don't know if we made it a prediction, but we said this could be a problem down the line for Republicans. And this is when last year after the the tax cuts we heard well, there's going to be another set of tax cuts that will come before the midterm elections. As Bloomberg is reporting House Republicans had planned to use a second. Phase of tax cuts to force Democrats into a difficult vote ahead of the midterm elections. Now party leaders may drop the effort fearing, it could backfire by antagonist voters in some hotly contested congressional districts you, and I said this from the very beginning that what the what when when they did that they were focusing on the Senate, and as we said, you have a lot of districts in blue states that have Republicans. You know in that congressional seat and in those red states, you have a ton of Republicans whose taxes have gone up because of the cap on the state and local taxes, right? And we said this could affect the midterm election. So this whole thing that when people were saying when this is going back months ago when people said, well, they're gonna bring it up right before the midterm, and we said don't be so certain of that because the house races. And now, we know that, you know, the the you saw Trump go after sessions for the Collins and Duncan Hunter, you know, situations and those two congressional seats and now Republicans are realizing oh. This is about winning the house. And so yeah, we had planned to go with the second phase of tax cuts to force Democrats into the top vote. Now, we don't want Republicans to take that vote, right? Because of Republicans go for extending the tax cuts because that's what it would be extending the tax cuts than they would be extending the cap on the state and local taxes, which many Republicans. In red states. Do not like right why because their taxes went up. And and that's basically, do you. We talked about the, you know, the blue states that were screaming, and we said, well, wait a minute. You have even red states. There are areas where people are going to lose because they're either the value of their home or their tax rate or the combination of the two brings it above that level. Now, it won't be as high as many of those homes in the blue states and those homeowners getting hit there. But there was going to be that backlash. We knew it was coming in. And I think it was weird how the Republicans pretended. It wasn't going to happen or they were betting. I don't know which one it was that it wouldn't. And that they would you know that the the house for them would be safe, but that's never a given. And you have to know that that kind of impact is going to have people in those red districts in those blue states upset. That was going to be one of those impacts. And and here's the thing in those red districts. You know, those Republicans even though they may not have gone through their their twenty eighteen taxes yet twenty eighteen you know, tax season and filed yet they won't do that until next spring. They're fully aware of what's coming. You know, often it has to hit right tax cuts. That's one of the things you can tell people tax cuts are coming. But until they start seeing it in their account. Well, they don't feel that benefit. Well, the homeowners in those districts and those red districts in the blue states. No, they know what's coming. They know what it's going to be like and they're prepared. They're trying to prepare and they're not happy about Representative Lance Leonard Lance of New Jersey, which has the highest property taxes in the country said in a statement that he does not support a tax Bill. That includes the salt provisions and things the measure would have a better chance of passing without it that the tax cuts should go further, but a cap should be taken off the salt taxes because that could affect his Republican district, and they said the worse it here largely because the salt cap dilemma this Bloomberg House Republicans are hitting the pause button on tax reform to legislation according to three GOP aids. Requested anonymity to speak about the matter. You and I brought this up immediately. When this was passed. And I said this is going to be a problem. And they talk about the fact that what will extend it. This'll be this'll be the new of tax cuts coming up before the midterms, and the Democrats will have to take a vote, and you and I both said excuse me, Republicans are going to have to take a vote, and it's going to be awfully close in in these districts that that are a toss up because Democrats because we said what you're doing is number one you're hitting middle to upper middle class people that are Republicans in these states as as we have said a core constituency. Of the Republican party. And we've always stated politically what were they thinking. When they did that what was the thought process, not tax wise, but political wok? Yeah. Because they seem to be so confident will extend this come before the midterms will extend it before the midterms will, and you and I looked at each other and said, we're they going on this because we see that this is going to be a problem for the congressional districts out there that are are hard hard fought in these blue states, but these Republican districts. Yeah. And that's one thing. I again, if you if depending on where you live, it doesn't matter what liberal state that you live in. I mean, there are people in New York people think of New York, and it's all liberal. It's not now. There are millions of people that that are in New York state now, it's not the majority. It's not near the majority. It doesn't mean that they don't exist. And it doesn't mean that in those rural areas they don't win a ton of congressional district because they do. And as we said, the problem with the the the the the salt cap in these districts is they affect some of the most loyal constituents of the Republican party those in the middle and middle upper class that have property and the cap is going to affect them. And it, you know, I mean, politically you're just not going to get away from it. And it happened so close to the term again, you know, here's the difference between the Republicans in the in this case. And and the Democrats I'm talking about the rank and file in any of those districts, again, they're they're fully aware of what what's going to happen. Come twenty nine thousand nine when they file their taxes are fully aware of this it, and you know, what made it louder was the fact that of course, you had the the Democrats in those blue states screaming about it. What you don't have you don't want. This reminds me of this reminds me of ObamaCare. Yeah. That occupy agains initially jumped out great plan. Great plan. Great plan. Great plan. Great plan. Oh, wait a minute. We like the benefits whether it's Abam care or a tax cut. We don't like the mandates where somebody has to pay more for it. Right. Right. Exactly. And that's what you're getting. Now is the the salt cap is viewed as one of the most unpopular portions of the Republican tax Bill by Republicans that had the pay that that that are head and are affected and have to pay more taxes because of it. Yes. Exactly. And and it's it's politically you can't get away from that. There's there's no. And and so we wondered politically not on the tax Bill itself. But politically we're wondering because there seemed to be so much confidence coming out of the house going to be no problem. And we said it's going to be a problem. Yeah. Politically down the road. And if you're trying to hold onto the house come the midterms. This could be a huge problem down the road for you. And and so there was his competent that competence at all. We're going to we're gonna pass this right before the midterms. This is coming. I remember how many callers we Hatton they call up and said, no, no no tax cuts to or coming and they're to extend it permanently. And we said we don't know about that. No, not if it's close in the house now that they believe it's going to be close because this is going to affect those house districts. Yup. It's it's and it's just interesting. It's it's almost laughable to watch the Republicans scrambling here as if they didn't see this coming. I don't know if they if they just had confidence that that that they would have enough this. This really got this really was about the Senate. You know, there was the senate's actions here. But they have to know that if those Republicans in the Senate after no you guys have that slim margin. And then on the other side of that you're going to need the house to get everything done on your agenda. You know, forget about the president's agenda. You're going to need the house to get that done. You know? I I, you know, I thought about Texas, for example, because it says here still the salt cap is a non issue in many solidly Republican districts of low tax states were most voters didn't generate a high enough tax Bill do exceed the US ten thousand dollar cap. But when you live in a state like Texas that's viewed as lower tax because we don't have an income tax. We do have a property tax and the property taxes, quite how you and so there are ton of people in the middle to upper middle class in the state of Texas solidly read that aren't happy about the salt cap. Yeah. And and again, we'll we'll see what what they ultimately do about this. But I don't know how they didn't anticipate this from the beginning. It was easy to see. We knew that we knew if we could see it how they not as we always say if the two idiots overnight can figure it out. It's not that hard. And so I thought it was interesting because I was wondering. Okay, what's happening? There haven't talked about it. Nice others Bloomberg article that they they ask Kevin McCarthy for a comment, and he denied he declined to comment on it. So. There we go. So there were were we'll see where this goes. And whether they are going to have a vote on her just sort of tried to let this thing slide and wait till after the midterm election hope for the best in the midterms yet to you know, to to put it in. So, but it's like you said it just like remember ObamaCare, everybody all Republicans just hate everything of ObamaCare once ObamaCare happened. Well, we love the benefits of ObamaCare, but we didn't like the mandate or the taxes. We liked the free stuff. And that was Republicans. That was Republicans pulled same thing happening here at everybody loved the tax cuts. But all of a sudden there's a ton of Republicans who actually have to, you know, don't get a huge discount on their property taxes. And now, they're not happy. Love the tax cuts.

So could governor Ducey run Ford in in the special election in twenty twenty many believe that he just might we might be right in a prediction that we'd normally don't make a lot of predictions. And I don't know if we made it a prediction, but we said this could be a problem down the line for Republicans. And this is when last year after the tax cuts we heard well, there's going to be another set of tax cuts that will come before the midterm elections as Bloomberg's reporting House Republicans had planned to use a second. Phase of tax cuts to force Democrats into a difficult vote ahead of the midterm elections. Now party leaders may drop the effort fearing it could backfire by antagonist voters in some hotly contested congressional districts you, and I said this from the very beginning. That would the what when when they did that they were focusing on the Senate, and as we said, you have a lot of districts in blue states that have Republicans. You know in that congressional seat and in those red states, you have a ton of Republicans whose taxes have gone up because of the cap on the state and local taxes, right? And we said this could affect the midterm elections. So this whole thing that when people were saying this is going back months ago when people said, well, they're going to bring it up right before the midterm when we said don't be so certain of that because the house races. And now, we know that, you know, the the give you saw Trump go after sessions for the Collins and Duncan Hunter, you know, situations and those two congressional seats and now Republicans are realizing oh. This is about winning the house. And so yeah, we had planned to go with the second phase of tax cuts to force Democrats into the top vote. Now, we don't want Republicans to take that tough vote right because the Republicans go for extending the tax cuts because that's what it would be extending the tax cuts. They would be extending the cap on the state and local taxes, which many Republicans. In red states. Do not like right why because their taxes went up. And that's the basically, you know. I mean you. We talked about the, you know, the blue states that were screaming, and we said, well, wait a minute. You have even red states. There are areas where people are going to lose because they're either the value of their home or their tax rate or the combination of the two brings it above that level. Now, it won't be as high as many of those homes in the blue states and those homeowners getting hit there. But there was going to be that backlash. We knew it was coming in. And I think it was weird how the Republicans pretended. It wasn't going to happen or they were betting. I don't know which one it was that it wouldn't. And that they would you know that the the house for them would be safe, but that's never a given. And you have to know that that kind of impact is going to have people in those red districts in those blue states upset. That was going to be one of those impacts. And here's the thing in those red districts. You know, those Republicans even though they may not have gone through their their twenty eighteen taxes yet twenty eighteen you know, tax season and filed yet they won't do that until next spring. They're fully aware of what's coming. You know, often it has to hit right tax cuts. That's one of the things you can tell people Scots are coming. But until they start seeing it in their account. Well, they don't feel that benefit. Well, the homeowner send those districts and those red districts in the blue states, no. They know what's coming. They know what it's going to be like, and they're preparing they're trying to prepare and they're not happy about represented, Lance Leonard Lance of New Jersey, which has the highest property taxes in the country said in a statement that he does not support a tax Bill that includes the salt provisions, and thanks the measure would have a better chance of passing without it that the tax cuts should go further, but a cab should be taken off the salt taxes because that could affect his Republican district, and they said the worse it here largely because the salt cap dilemma this Bloomberg House Republicans are hitting the pause button on tax reform legislation. According to three GOP aides who requested anonymity to speak about the matter you, and I brought this up immediately when this was passed. And I said this is going to be a problem. I mean, they talk about the fact that what will extended this'll be this'll be the new tax cuts coming up before the midterms, and the Democrats will take a vote, and you and I both said excuse me, Republicans are going to have to take. And it's going to be awfully close in in these districts that that are a toss up because Democrats because we said what you're doing is number one you're hitting middle to upper middle class people that are Republicans in these states as as we have set a core constituency. Of the Republican party. And we've always stated politically what were they thinking. When they did that what was the thought process, not tax wise, but political wa yeah, because they seem to be so confident will extend this come before the midterms will extended before the midterms, and you, and I looked at each other and said where are they going on this because we see that this is going to be a problem for the congressional districts out there that are are hard hard fought in these blue states, but these Republican districts, and that's one thing. I again, if you if depending on where you live, it doesn't matter what liberal state that you live in. I mean, there are people in New York people think of New York, and it's all liberal. It's not now. There. There are millions of people that that are in New York state now, it's not the majority. It's not near the majority. It doesn't mean that they don't exist. And it doesn't mean that in those rural areas they don't win a ton of congressional district because they do, and as we said the problem with the the the the salt cap in these districts is they affect some of the most loyal constituents of the Republican party. If those in the middle and middle upper class that have property and the cap is going to affect them. And if you know, I mean, politically, you're just not going to get away from it, and it happened so close to the mid-term again, you know, here's the difference between the Republicans in in this case. And and the Democrats on talking about the rank and file in any of those districts, again, they're they're fully aware of what what is going to happen. Nineteen when they file their taxes. They're fully aware of this hit. And you know, what made it louder was the fact that of course, you had the the Democrats in those blue states screaming about it. Well, you don't have you know, what this reminds me of this reminds me of ObamaCare. Yeah. That occupy against initially jumped out great plan. Great plan. Great plan. Great plan. Great plan. Oh, wait a minute. We like the benefits whether it's over Macaire or a tax cut. We don't like the mandates where somebody has to pay more for right? Right. Exactly. And that's what you're getting. Now is the the salt cap is viewed as one of the most unpopular portions of the Republican tax Bill by Republicans that have the pay that that that are hit and are affected and have to pay more taxes because yes, exactly. And and it's it's politically you can't get away from that. There's there's no. And and so we had wondered politically not on the tax Bill itself. But politically we're wanting because there seemed to be so much confidence coming out of the report is going to be no problem. We said it's going to be a problem politically down the road. And if you're trying to hold onto the house come the midterms. This could be a huge problem down the road for you. And and so there was this competent that competence adult. We're gonna we're gonna pass this right before the midterms this. I remember how many callers we Hatton that called up and said, no, no no tax cuts to are coming and they're going to extend it permanently. And we said we don't know about that not if it's close in the house, not if they believe it's going to be close because this is going to affect those house districts. Yup. It's it's and it's just interesting. It's it's almost laughable to watch the Republicans scrambling here as if they didn't see this coming. I don't know if they if they just had confidence that that that they would have enough this. This really got this really was about the Senate. It was the senate's actions here. But they have to know that if those Republicans in the Senate have to know you guys have that slim margin. And then on the other side of that you're going to need the house to get everything done on your agenda. You know, forget about the president's agenda. You're going to need the house to get that done. You know? I I, you know, I I've thought about Texas example, because it says here is still the salt cap is a non issue in many solidly Republican districts of low tax states were most voters didn't generate a high enough tax Bill do exceed the US ten thousand dollar cap. But when you live in a state like Texas that's viewed as lower tax because we don't have an income tax. We do have a property tax and the property taxes, quite how you yeah. And so there are a ton of people in the middle to upper middle class in the state of Texas solidly read that aren't happy about the salt cap. Yeah. And and again, we'll we'll see what what they ultimately do about this. But I don't know how they didn't anticipate this from the beginning. It was easy to see. We knew that we knew if we could see it as as we always say if the two idiots overnight can figure it out. It's not that hard. The. And so I thought it was interesting because I was wondering. Okay, what's happening? There haven't talked about it. And I saw this Bloomberg article that they they ask Kevin McCarthy for a comment, and he denied he declined to comment on it. So. There we go. So there were we'll see where this goes. And whether they are going to have a vote on just sort of tried to let this thing slide and wait till after the midterm election hope for the best until after the midterms yet to to to put it in. But it's like you said it's just like remember ObamaCare, everybody all Republicans just ate everything of ObamaCare ons. Obamacare happened. Well, we love the benefits of ObamaCare, but we didn't like the mandate or the taxes. Right. We like the free stop. And that was Republicans as Republicans pulled same thing happening here. Everybody loved the tax cuts. But all of a sudden there's a ton of Republicans who actually have to, you know, don't get a huge discount on their property taxes and out they're not happy loved the tax cuts. Don't like the tax increases. Eight six six ninety redeye. Tips from JJ Keller and associates Inc.

"governor ducey" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM

"Me this week. Thanks so much for sitting in the hot seat there. Steve thanks for being here came on a very busy day. I appreciate your perspective on a day. Like today a busy day. Indeed. As we have governor Ducey naming Senator McCain's successor that being Senator John Kyle very interesting pick. I like the pick. Steve it's who I wanted in that seat up until about an hour and fifteen minutes ago, and here's why because when the governor made the announcement this morning, here's what he said. He said that he's got a commitment from Kyle. But people automatically assume that this appointment will serve through twenty twenty. I haven't been able to get that assurance from Senator. Kyle yet. What I have gotten is a commitment to serve Arizona through at least this session of congress. And it's my hope that he serves longer. I like John Kyle. I've interviewed him any number of times. He he is somebody who is somebody that you respect, even if you don't necessarily. He's a person known for integrity in his eighteen years in the Senate. I can't recall any serious scandal. All right or anything like that. He's just not that kind of guy. But if there's any question that he is going to serve to twenty twenty that the governor is somehow going to be able to convince him of doing that. I say absolutely not when Kyle retired in two thousand thirteen he meant to retire, and he has since gone to work as a lobbyist where he makes a lot more money, and he's still involved the Senate level and a number of different things. He he shepherded the last two judicial nominees through. He helped get Jeff Sessions confirmed in the Senate. As well. So he's he somebody who's still involved there but involved at a distance that he's comfortable with in that he can make more money in the private sector. He doesn't have to run for election. He doesn't have to raise all kinds of campaign money. And so four months is it I'm absolutely convinced of that in January. Whoever is governor is going to have to make another appointment. And then if you're the kind of person who hates elections hate politics, and you don't want to see all these negative ads on TV too bad. Because that's exactly what's going to happen. Getting a little break between November and say January. But then whoever gets down appointment, you can be guaranteed that they're going to run for re election, and they'll have a about a year in well almost two years twenty three months or so, and so you can expect it by mid twenty nineteen you're going to see a full on Senate race in this state. And again, it's going to be what it comes back to Steve what's best for Zona. And what's best for our state? Putting Senator Kyle in there for four months is that what's best for Arizona. I think it's best for the confirmation hearing. We're seeing right now for Brett Cavanaugh. I think that's what it's best for. I think it's best for the Republican party to have that Senate voice that's going to give a thumbs up on Brett cavenaugh. But when it comes to the state of Arizona is it what's best to have an individual whom. I really like and whom. I've interviewed several times before with Senator Kyle only there for four months because now in January you're going to have another appointee. Then like you said you're going to have another race in twenty twenty and then in twenty twenty two, and it just seems like a lot it seems like a lot for our state today. Jess, especially in the wake of the passing of Senator McCain. There was always the debate though with with ducey's pick as to how political that would be because when you when you pick John Kyle, and you pick somebody who who flat out says I'm not going to run for reelection. Then you know, that at least for the next four months. He's there to serve and he's there to do. What's best for Arizona? I know it's only four months, but imagine him picking somebody who fully intends to run for reelection in two thousand twenty and that's what they're going to spend their time doing. And in the meantime, we've got somebody who is essentially a freshman Senator with nobody to really mentor them at all. I mean, there's no senior Senator out there anymore. To do that. Even even Jeff flake who is only a first term Senator he's not going to be there. And so when when you talk about governor Ducey scores points when he takes politics out of it, and he scores political points, even when he's being a little like last week with John McCain when he when he takes the high road and that does well for him, especially in a state where a third of our voters our independence. They're not committed to either party, but it is political in regards to Kyle because you know, you say taking the high route it's also a safe peck, it's not going to create controversy ahead of the November election for do sees reelection. He doesn't want any controversy with this is a very important pick. But he didn't want any controversy surrounding it. But I think by choosing someone who's only going to be there for four months. It is a big gamble. Do see is banking on the fact that he's going to get reelected the GOP. Banking on the fact that he gets reelected because if he doesn't come January, you would have a David Garcia choosing the replacement for John McCain, and that's something that Chuck Coughlin talked to us about a little bit earlier. And he said, yeah, that's a risky pick. It's a risky decision. But the appointment of John Kyle. I think does help governor Ducey in that reelection bid. I think it does. Absolutely. He doesn't need any other criticism at this point. He he's trying to run a campaign where he sort of stays above the fray, and this certainly does that for him. What you know? What did not stay above the fray? My goodness. The protesters at the confirmation hearing four Brett Cavanaugh the supreme court pick that's going on right now that does play into this decision. By governor Ducey, how this all works together. We're going to put the pieces of the puzzle together for you right here on KTAR coming up next. Governor Ducey appoints a familiar face to fill late Senator John McCain seat in the US Senate. I've asked Senator John Kyle to step forward. Once again in a spirit of service in a tweet. Cindy, McCain says, John Kyle is a dear friend, and that it's a great tribute to John McCain the Kyle.

"Good morning. I am grateful for governor ducey's confidence in me and honored to accept this appointment. We're all saddened by the circumstances that require deportment. Appreciate that. There was only one John McCain, John, and I serve the people of Arizona together for nearly twenty years and in that spirit along with Senator flake. I will do my best to assure that era zones continue to be well represented in the US Senate. Governor asked me to serve for the remainder of the term. And he's made some very convincing point. I've committed to serving at least through the second session at the one hundred and fifteenth congress, I do know I will not seek the seat in two thousand twenty or any other office in the future. I'm accepting this appointment to fill the seat vacated by the passing of my dear friend, because of my sense of duty to the state I love and the institution of the Senate in which I served for eighteen years and because the governor asked for my help. And because I'm putting my country first just as the seats previous occupant did every single day for more than thirty years. For now there is much unfinished business on the senate's calendar, including confirmation of President Trump's nominees to judicial and executive branch positions. I look forward to going to Washington and getting to work. Thank you. Well, let me start with the obvious one. Senator since. Labor. Comment. God help us out. How I wanted to pick the best possible person, regardless of politics. There is big work to be done in the United States Senate. No, one in the state of Sony has the stature of John Kyle I asked and I'm grateful that he accepted. Senator why couldn't you commit to serve past the end of the year. And does your lobbying for years down in any way? The answer to the second question. There's no, and the reason that I did not want to commit beyond the end of this congressional session. Is because when I left the center almost six years ago, I had no intention of returning. I needed to be with my family to come back to Arizona, more and to..

Filled with energy and, by the way I don't want the person who is given this to run in the special election. In twenty twenty I think. It'd be great I think it'd be great for this person to, be a placeholder but someone casting real votes with real forethought and a real agenda born over a. Real political career and I'm not saying that Sidney McCain Has some, pretty face with no brain she's a talented and wonderful woman I got nothing bad to say about. Sending McCain but no no. Gimme John Kyle and I think my next favorite would be former, congressman John Shattuck he was elected to the house in ninety four with the Gingrich wave a fiscal. Conservative respected within the House Republican caucus Always. A fierce ObamaCare critic that'll be refreshing that seat and after I guess, seven terms John Shattuck announced in two thousand ten That he would would not seek reelection and he's now a partner in a law firm in Phoenix and I, I just think so John Kyle or John Shattuck that would? Be that would be my favorite family. Friend of the McCain's said. If John had his way he would you ready for this here's, McCain's wish for his own. Successor you're ready from a. Friend so I'll give this some, level of authority ready a Hispanic woman A hispanic Woman Excuse, me Our our own guys are playing.

"The election. And that's the, last time, we spoke, to governor Ducey, about poll numbers You know it kind of seems like at least for now You know the polls show that it's a toss up between governor, Doug Ducey and whoever he's going to fight who's a democrat but it also appears that the Republican governors association has spent nine million dollars already on governor. Ducey's reelection, and let's see where are not in September yet Yeah it's only August and they're afraid, of the red Fred movement of course you know what are you always say fifty thousand people showed up on Doug ducey's front lawn down the state capital Teachers are either skeptical.

"Democrats well i don't think they were asking and actually in in the verbiage they demanded governor ducey hold a special session bring everybody in the legislature back and try and figure out a school safety plan for this state and i'll just tell you this is very political there's no question about it the democrats you know are trying to get out in front of a story like this and they say okay if it happened in texas it could happen in arizona rain there right the way they went about doing this they wanted to try and push governor ducey around and that's just not the right way to go if you really want to get something done you could have gotten it done in the regular session went in front of the microphone fun ext just tired didn't know what to self coming out and talking about this stuff these school shootings one after another and he said what do you want me to do what do you want me to say what do you want me to say and he he said we got to change some gun laws think that was part of it and people said oh how can you politicize it on the day of nine i think because i mean i don't even know if anybody could get anything done about this well the what i just don't like the way the arizona democrats did it today does that make sense or the shame governor ducey we're ordering you to call in a special session that doesn't mean you want to get done that means you just want to rail against the other side i mean i it's clearly political when they bullet point in this session senate democrats introduced the following gun safety bills none were allowed to hearing by senate republican leadership if it were the opposite the republicans would be doing the same thing and demanding that the governor immediately called the legislature back into session i understand your frustration is democrats that some things didn't even get heard on the floor i get it okay it's a republican controlled senate and house but to sit there and say nothing was done it's not our fault you didn't support governor doug ducey's plan because you had a problem that it didn't do enough he school safety plan.
