"One dot com or find us on Facebook Twitter or wherever you listen to podcasts and you can also hear is by asking Alexis deflated program conversations on yeah stay tuned for our interview with presidential candidates Montana governor Steve bullock on conversations on first we can say with Montana governor Steve bullock who is currently running for the twenty twenty democratic presidential nomination prior to his election in two thousand and twelve governor bullock served as Montana's Attorney General where he launched efforts to combat citizens United previously ran a law firm in Montana after having practiced law in Washington DC governor bullock also taught as an adjunct professor at the George Washington University School of law he recently completed his tenure as chair of the national governors association he earned his BA in politics and economics from Claremont McKenna college in his law degree with honors from Columbia Law School New York governor bullock walking conversations on healthcare it's great to be with you all for sure yeah and first of all congratulations on your candidacy you're part of a significant group of Democrats who are battling for the twenty twenty presidential nomination and you're you're a Democrat in Montana a state that went heavily for president trump and yet you won by a sizeable margin talk to our listeners about your ability to bring voters from different backgrounds together what makes you uniquely qualified as a presidential candidate in what are some of the motivating forces behind your decision to run sure yeah Asian appreciate that I was the only actually Democrat in the country to get reelected interstate twenty sixteen were Donald Trump what he did Montana by twenty points twenty five to thirty percent of my voters voted for trump it's more marketing chistes win the election yeah my legislature in my six years right in here is gone from the times about two thirds of public and about sixty percent now but somehow we've been able to get some of the politics out of there actually get progress of the meeting things like healthcare or the need for education a kicking dark money our election so some of the unique qualifications and bring to a big field is if we can't win back some of the places that we lost in twenty sixteen we're not gonna win this race I mean I listen to people I'm sure you find the I will win California Massachusetts for mom but we have to make sure that whoever is in our company can also win place like in Montana I wore Michigan Wisconsin does come I think far too often why she sees kind of place where I can become substitute I don't have the luxury and just keeping the screeches right I'd have to see my constituents each and every day and they expect me to deliver and that's deliver everything from the services they expect out of government but also deserve forward movement so they get you bring some things gold geographically generationally in being able to the sort of place you need to make sure that we can win yeah twenty twenty we're gonna win this race governor bill like you said that you have some very good reasons for entering somewhat late into this political fray and certainly earlier this year we know you're very focused on the Medicaid expansion in your state maybe you could talk with us a bit about what must have been a bit of an Odyssey the most important thing is you are successful those tens of thousands of people got coverage so the question is is there a play book that comes out of this for how to work across party lines thank you we're gonna take you did there aren't actually yeah I signed my last bill on Monday and I now on the Tuesday there after so on the one hand you know you can go back Bill Clinton didn't get in until October the year or but we actually first got Medicaid expansion past year and twenty fifty and we're gonna re authorized by ballot initiative in twenty eighteen but tobacco companies actually spent twenty six million dollars killing that re authorization SO two months after that is when our legislature started I had to make sure to get that route because there are a hundred thousand Montana so the vast majority who are working right the rely on that healthcare and but I think the model even we got through twenty fifty time where obamacare or the formal care act was when viewed as favorably is that what it is even today how we got it through is by noon number one of which is not making it all about the battle state house by going to rural community and I'll never forget I was in this one it short of Montana where hardly should seventeen Hon where during the town meeting where the hospital administrator said you know forty three percent of people walk through those hospital doors it's or a county commissioner noted that he'd been born in that hospital they lost that hospital they'd lose that town so instead of making it about any sort of politics what about the importance of health care in twenty nine she also did a big study and figured out that fifty seven percent of the businesses in this state having one or more employees on Medicaid so it's not just state program for you know those that aren't that wealthier not working it's also taking care of lawyers that unfortunately are unable or unwilling to hate employees not all year and what we've seen in Montana with a hundred thousand folks covered thirty thousand more gun and mental health three ounces this is used to store we actually put on made a state website shows county by county this sort of preventative treatments people are getting along way because we know that you know one way or another we're all gonna take care folks who don't have health well let's pull the thread a little on the on the health care conversation certainly we hear a number of candidates calling for Medicare for all and they're all there is to have more sort of a moderate but progressive approach opting to strengthen the affordable Care Act and I'm wondering how you would describe your plan I think that we all hopefully greed that healthcare should be affordable accessible for all in by the affordable Care Act which I think was actually the greatest advance in healthcare its Medicaid Medicare reverse past Medicare's example you we've been continued building onto a long way we still about twenty five million folks that are covered now if we can expand Medicaid the rest states cover about half well what I would do is actually build on the portable care act let's not start what I would do is a public option first of all an option where individuals could actually buy health insurance from the government instead of just the private market a second which it is just a shame rose actually verison like cosco good to go she prescription drug prices but it's still legal the federal level it was a drop in the influence of money system I think we get in surprise medical billing and out of network charges legislation federal now I don't think that the best policy for the best political solution if we actually want to win this election is to tell but a hundred eighty million people that they have sponsored health care we're gonna take all that away indeed there will be no more hi good market in this I don't think that's the best policies once people dig into what that might look like you know often the great majority folks say that's not direction we have made great strides we still have a lot further to go but I don't think she's journal down start over at least from my perspective the best way to go well governor you've had I think the incredible opportunity and given the incredible service as chair of the national governors association and I would imagine a chance to you know work shoulder to shoulder with other leaders about some of the unique challenges that are faced by the rural states and our country particularly around healthcare delivering healthcare in rural regions share with our listeners the solutions that you've advocated for around improving healthcare access in the rural states and what would you continue to advocate for as president and are there some bold new initiatives that you think rural America needs relative to health care you got married and we have about twenty percent of the rural hospitals right now risking closing in this country if you lose a world possible that towns go viability that community is it's so much greater risk so I think we have to do everything ensuring there are ways that we are providers to insuring the way that there's financial bill Miller St like mine in Montana we actually have to residency programs yeah one as a primary care restaurants we just started one in psychiatry as well we know yeah any individual there's a residency program in the community or region or area there's so much more apt to stay we double psychiatry and some other things the root program called project echo words essentially building case teams in doing work online he started bridge some of these world apps or the large geographic gaps specially there is where is often mental health providers that are that much more challenge I think we also have to look at me Burstyn rates for rural communities because at times they should be higher there urban areas just because you can't lose that connection in rural areas are really does get out places we don't loan forgiveness program specifically dedicated for practitioners when it comes to the rural areas and the biggest nothing most important is the viability of Medicaid making sure that you have Medicaid expansion because where you have so many folks don't have coverage and you don't have a a reimbursement rate through Medicaid expansion that much harder for those smaller communities in those rural hospitals stay open sending those are just kind of the base level you don't even in some ways transcends beyond just health care to make sure that you're doing everything solid internet connectivity to creating job opportunities within the community foundations or are smaller to your four year colleges is nobody should have to lead the right place it either there ray place there place a lot right or the place a rocker sure well we're speaking say with Montana governor Steve bullock contender for the democratic nomination in the twenty twenty presidential campaign partners terms governing service Montana's Attorney General and was instrumental in the citizens United case governor I think it's fair to say you had a Clarion voice on this about the the sort of the iron clad grip the big money has on lawmakers you point specifically to the national rifle association which just a few weeks ago was seen to manage to influence the president to back away from his pledge to promote universal background checks for gun buyers after a devastating of back to back mass shootings your pro second amendment and you say we must address the nation's gun violence epidemic as a public health issue no wonder if you could just talk to our listeners a little bit about where you come from on this issue yeah and if you read mark and where you start out with sort of the corrupting influence of money in our system that really has been the fight of not only the mind can years public ox but I think it's a challenge of our time you go anywhere from gun safety to climb to why can't we negotiate prescription drug runners and so much of it is I think because in this post citizens United world Washington DC send once and to many states are basically it's written by the donor so we have to dress dress eighty else is you know yeah I am a gun owner I Hans forty percent of households in this country there's a fire but also the father of also someone that it's tired of lowering flags is the governor tired of my children having the were active shooter trills and if we could ever look at the public health issue not as a political issue we could make substantial progress yeah when I was growing up the national rifle association's gun safe hunting in it was a shooting or station now stuff more in the medical records stay she uses of artists are going to be thirty million reasons why Donald Trump is doing exactly what he's doing that's a thirty million Bucks the day span on his election I remember back right after the park which all of the nation's governors were in the White House of her now she got riso Sheesh at that time president trump and said we should look at universal background checks within a week you reversed after he spoke the NRA I lowered the flag seven times you did the same thing right after okay now so date health issue would look at it is saying there are steps that we can take like universal background checks best majority minority members and Republican state a public health issue would say save store she was a red flag C. W. movement where you know there's concerns that have been raised and look even the state of Indiana past red flag is our numbers increase level well I'm confident when I when did I can give some background but I don't think we should wait John of course need to be calling on folks as well in DC to make some meaningful change because I think we're all just tired of worrying about the older kids and safety of our communities well governor I think one of the areas where you've really let is making this connection between some of these major social problems that are facing us and recognizing that they have a huge tie to public health and two areas that you've really lead on were the areas of protecting the environment.

"We must as a country by hi those weapons. Take them off the streets altogether. There are millions of them. The narrative of for responsible gun owners that the federal government's moment's gonna come in and take away all of your guns. I think that feeds sec democratic division former congressman better aurore calling for a mandatory by back back of assault weapons which are some forms of semiautomatic weapon in the wake of the paso terrorist attack other democrats such as montana governor steve bullock skeptical. Let's discuss us so i am old enough to remember when democrats really were afraid of talking about any sort of gun control of basically between alborz loss and hillary clinton running for president. There was a sixteen years of democrats really kind of tiptoeing around until after the sandy hook shooting. Has there been a real change here. Absolutely the politics on this has really changed now you you have ninety percent of the american people who support background checks if you're a republican running for congress if you're a republican running twenty twenty you are in some troubled waters if you're not supporting background checks. I think that what's going to happen here. Is the house hopefully will. They moved forward legislation here and you're we're having an important conversation in our party right now. About how exactly g you reduce gun violence which i think the republican party is even having what do you think about it seems to me that there is broad consensus to expand background checks. Possibly include things like people who are repeated domestic violent offenders to look at red flag laws. Oh so that we can get the guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and also look at things like social media postings <hes> possibly expulsions from school and so there seems to be a lot of people all interested in that kind of policy so why are we going and talking about buybacks impure out bands. There's so much opportunity right here in the middle. That's what i find confusing. You talk about a buyback. It's going to be difficult to administer. Track is going to be expensive when there's so much more we could be doing. I'm background checks red flag laws us but also educating the public and how to lock up the guns you have and keep them safe and out of the hands of children who too often die from accidental death and mayor gillam i mean the man is a republican and s._e. Cop also conservative. You hear a them. Republican women moms talking about an opening of the mind in terms of some forms of expanding background checks and things like that is some people in your party going too far at risk alienating people like amanda n._f._c. and i'm talking not in terms of two thousand twenty but in terms of just give you hand sure sure well i saw i think there is a reckoning that is happening right now. In this country guns on the left and on the right just yesterday. I think it was yesterday. Moms demand action led thousands of people in cities all across america suburban moms urban moms and dads and others against this issue you.

After labor day my wife and i are both terrified of the fact that for the last five years we've put an surrounded our kids with as much love and care share as we possibly could and now they're gonna show up and have to learn what it means to respond to an active shooter drill in school so something has to happen here and we will have to eventually in my opinion get around to the conversation of what we do with weapons of war that are still out there on our streets so your fellow pennsylvania republican pat toomey senator pat toomey. <hes> tried to push for an expansion of background checks with another strong n._r._a.

"And no one would even know when they repealed that rule has been around since Richard Shirt Nixon he wasn't exactly the model transparency so I took him to court and right before the debate last night we heard we won and so that means what so what that means is that the I._R._S. is going to have to collect the names of all of these dark money groups so at least it'll be a record unless that they can actually go through and do a rule you don't just repeal rules have been around since the seventies by having the treasury secretary stand stand up and say it's gone but it really points. I mean one of the big problems of lottery and the discussions that we're having on that debate last night when we talk about climate when we talked about income inequality when we talk about prescription drug prices when we talk about gun safety we've got a recognized that the corrupting influence about side dollars a billion dollars being spent since citizens united where decisions are being made because this is what the donors want what the people we want. If we don't address that it's going to be that much harder to get any of this other stuff done that has been the fight of my career and what is your sort sort of environmental view and and view of protecting lands and wildlife but also balancing hunting again thinking about your your back onto Montana well. It's one one of these look. We're outdoors folks. I wrote not bad quite a while ago right win. You know president trump was getting rid of these national monuments. I said if you really want to see see what makes America great spend the night outdoors. Look at our public hands are public lands because so many of the Republicans have been trying to privatise those lands aons and sell them and it's also another area like right now in my home state right before I came out here I got a briefing our fire seasons are seventy eight days longer than they were about three and a half decades ago and we've got to address climate and we can take immediate durable steps but we got to have volt the will to do it and we gotta take on the coke brothers and the oil companies and everybody else. It's made it so Republicans won't even knowledge of climate change is real governor. Steve Bullock Bullock fresh off your first debate takes join US tonight. Thanks for having me. I'll probably go out and have a beer now all right there you go an honest answer at the end of a political interview. Enjoy the beer in Michigan up next well. There's a new line of attack that is getting under Mitch Is Not a Russian asset. He's even back to foreign policy critical of Putin at least back in the day until trump came along and that is the issue McConnell's enraged over these attacks taking even to the Senate floor to blast it as modern day mccarthyism and some Senate reporters who cover all this closely said it was fiery three by McConnell standards but any serious suggestion of foreign loyalty is obviously provocative and that's the part of this which goes to speculating on motives but top Democrats along with a lot of national security officials say this is really about what McConnell's doing not why he keeps doing is blocking king votes on bills to protect U._S. elections. That's what Bob Muller recently warned is an issue because he says we're under attack by Russia but it's not just him take take trump's handpicked F._B._I.. Director Chris Wray who recently said flatly more must be done to stop the Russian meddling for twenty twenty or if you want another source consider the Senate Intelligence deligence committee led by Mitch McConnell's leadership team which released a bipartisan report that says Russian activities demand renewed attention to vulnerabilities in U._S.. Voting infrastructure many experts are concerned about all that real stuff outraged even barely not Mitch McConnell would outrageous rages. Him is the nickname with the New York Times reporting..

"Welcome to an HBO podcast from the HBO latent series real time with Bill Maher. I give. Thank you. Well, I don't know what to tell you, ladies and gentlemen. If you're watching what's going on politically, Montana governor, Steve Bullock is running for president. If you're excited by this, you are Montana. Governor Steve Bullock. Well, this is the week that we went on a war footing, ladies and gentlemen. There's the trade war with China, the real war coming up with Iran and the never ending Republican war on the uterus. Last week, Georgia state of Georgia made abortion illegal after six weeks this week Alabama, made it illegal at conception. This is the most restrictive abortion law ever. And unlike the people who wrote it, this one has teeth. We signed into law by their governor Kay Ivey. She's a grandmother like any other grandma, except that you never removes the cookies from the oven before they're finished baking. So that guy got it right. There guy guy love that joke, but they're calling it the heartbeat law and say, the only tiny heartbeat. I care about is Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Now as for the war that coming up with the random Trump has been dying for this war. He's looking for the excuse today. We found the excuse we caught the Iranians putting rockets on small boats. Yeah. Putting explosives on a small boat in the south. They call this fishing. And china. Oh, trump. Listen to Trump wants to spend twenty billion dollars of your tax money for a second round of bailouts to the farmers who were hurt by his stupid. Tariffs Trump still does not get that we pay the tariff. He keeps saying things like Chinese tariffs. He's a massive payments that good directly into our treasury. That's not even remotely close to how this work Trump thinks when he buys something, and you give him change. He makes money. Estimate of the cost of Trump's tariffs is five hundred dollars for every family. Democrats are calling it the Trump tax, actually they're not. I'm calling it the Trump tax. Democrats are stupid, and should call it the Trump tax. But the Democrats and never any good at running for office. They don't get this this week. They're discussing whether Muller should be testifying before them. And, you know, at this point when I hear about the mullahs report, it's like when I see Grey's anatomy on TV. I'm like, is that just? And finally. We'll be abused at this.

"O T. You ZipRecruiter, the smartest way to hire. Just in a mosh has reached a different conclusion that I have I respect him. I think it's a courageous statement. But I believe that to make a case for obstruction of Justice. You just don't have the elements that are evidenced in this document. Senator Mitt Romney just minutes ago responding to a tweet storm from Republican congressman Justin Amash in which he said that he thought President Trump had reached the level of impeachable offenses as laid out in the Muller report. Let's talk about it. First of all, let me start with congressman John Paul, you're on the House Judiciary, some members of the democratic caucus wanna go forward with impeachment, but democratic leaders have been saying slow your roll does the fact that just in a Marsh. A Republican is now supporting impeachment. At least theoretically. Mean that the people who want to proceed with that. Now have more wind at their backs. Well, I think it's a watershed moment for weeks speaker Pelosi has been saying this needs to be bipartisan if it's going to move forward, just from the practical perspective of impeachment moving forward. And I think just in a mosh coming on board means that there is now bipartisan support for really understanding the seriousness of what is in the Muller report. And, you know, he says, and I think he's right. We most of us actually swing district Democrats and progressives most of the caucus agrees with most of those conclusions that just an Ammash has around. What is in the report, we have read the report, it very carefully laid out a case that really is pushing for the house to take on these issues. So I think it's not about the impeachment vote. It's about opening an impeachment inquiry, and really having the legal ramp, the legal remedies that are stronger when you have an. Inquiry, and I think we're very quickly headed down that path. Former congresswoman love. Let me just ask you, do you think as somebody who served with Justin Amash, and he occasionally would take positions of buck this party especially on constitutional issue. Do you think that this will have an effect on other Republicans? Or do you think he's kind of an outline? I don't think so. I think one of the things that working with Justin Ammash he, he does this from time to time. And when it comes to the constitution, it's really interesting because he's incredibly a constitutional conservative except for when it comes to district are when it comes to issues that deal with Michigan. So we have I have seen him personally taken a step away from whether it's a house freedom caucus, or even Republicans, and there really isn't a rhyme or reason for some of these. So this doesn't surprise anyone I think that this, it's not going to help him. It's specially with the colleagues that he's used to working with and and his voting district. So we're car. What did you think? Mitt Romney pointed out, Senator Romney that I disagreed respectfully, but he also said the American people aren't there, which is true polls show that there is not enough support for impeachment, not, not majority support or even plurality support and second of all the senate's Republican. That's the jury, and they will never vote to convict as long as Republicans. I think it's a more simple question than that, because I don't believe that this is a political tool at all. In fact, I think this is a constitutional instrument. So either you think the president is above the law or you do not. I think that I appreciate congressman Ammash, but that's not where my issue lies my issue lies with the lack of courage, the House Democratic leadership is showing now the body and the caucus members had that, but I need Nancy Pelosi and Jim Clyburn, and standing Hoyer to, to do their job, as leaderships of this caucus and bring forth, these impeachment inquiries, the reason being is because the president is not above the law in Muller, late this out. We saw the same thing with Nixon what happened over time the America. In public, the more and more came out the American public got on board in right now. I think that they, there is a absolute case for obstruction of Justice that's been laid out. And so what if it doesn't get through the Senate? The fact is do your job in the house, and we'll worry about that later. What are you going to go?.

"O T. You ZipRecruiter, the smartest way to hire. Welcome back to state of the union Jake tapper. Former vice president, Joe Biden, making his big pitch to voters this weekend in the great city of Philadelphia as nearly a dozen of his democratic opponents are on the trail to knock him off his perch, where he's been since he entered the race on top one new camera to the racist weeks as he has the best chance to flip those voters. Who gave Trump, the White House democratic governor and who won a deeply red state on the same night? The President Trump on it. He's montana. Governor Steve Bullock, joins me now governor, thanks so much joining us, we appreciate it very to be with you, Jake. So we just saw former vice president, Joe Biden make his pitch to voters in Philly calling for unity offering what he called a different path for the country. Why you why would you make a better nominee, then vice president Biden? No, you bet. Jake, I think we're in a dangerous point. This two hundred forty three year experiment called Representative democracy. We actually I have to win. We have to win back places that we've lost. I've done that but we also have to bridge the divide. I mean, more than just winning. I was the only democrat in the country to get reelected statewide and state where Trump. One two thousand sixteen. Twenty five thirty percent of my voters. Also boated for Donald Trump. And we need to make sure that we can win back places. We lost more than that, though. I've also I signed my last Bill on Monday at announced on Tuesday that my whole time I've governed with a legislature. That's about sixty percent Republican, yet, we've been able to get progressive things done like Medicaid expansion like taking dark money out of our system. And we need to bridge divides Makdissi work, also. I don't think DC will ever really be working as it should be until we attacked the thing. That's more or less keeping everything back, and that's the post citizens United out dark money spending. And I've was turning gentleman for governor. I think I've done more than anybody in this race on that. And that is sort of the initial evil that we've got to dress, the economy's roaring. The unemployment rate is at three point six percent. The lowest level since one thousand nine hundred six. Sixty nine when you were what three wage growth has climbed to three point two percent. Well above the pace of rising prices job numbers grew more than expected last month..

"Do you think that this will lead to the overturning Roe v? Wade, I don't support the Alabama law. I believe that there ought to be exceptions. I'm pro-life, but there ought to be exceptions for rape, and incest, and where the life of the mothers at risk. But look, you're saying laws on both sides of this argument that are in the extreme, and whether it's New York and Virginia or whether it's Alabama and Missouri people have gone to the to the wings. If you will. I don't think that's productive. I think something much more towards the center makes a lot more sense. The Virginia law, I think was tabled. I don't think it actually became law. But let me ask you about something else. This was very interesting. You did this week you broke with your party to become the only Republican to vote against Michael trunk ale a nominee for federal district judge. He had called your former opponent a two thousand twelve President Obama, a quote unamerican imposter. He said that in two thousand eleven it's a pretty rare moment when a politician these days in one party stands against the rhetoric employed against somebody else. In the opposing party does there need to be more of that in Washington, where you surprised and disappointed that more of your Republican colleagues didn't join you now is actually a very personal thing for me. Which is, you know, I ran against President Obama I disagreed with about a whole host of issues. We went after each other very aggressively. But I completely rejected the whole idea that he was not born in the United States that, that he was unin Marican in some way, that he was an imposter in that respect. And so when a judge came forward making that kind of claim it is passed. That was not something I could subscribe to. So it wasn't a matter of his politics or right wing left. Ring it was instead, this is something which, which I made a very critical during my campaign as a matter of fact, during my campaign, when there was an instance, when someone to said that President Obama was un-american, I insisted that they apologize for that and retract that statement. So setting like this. I had no choice but to say, look, I do not subscribe to this un-american charge against President Obama. Lastly, sir, you celebrated your fiftieth wedding anniversary in March with an your wife you wrote in in for president in two thousand sixteen issue going to get your vote again in two thousand twenty I'm not ready to make an endorsement yet. Jake, we'll have to wait and see how she does. Are you going to support the president or do you not? No, I have not made any decision that front. So we'll, we'll wait. This is way too early for that. And you told us that. Is doing well and we're glad for that. Thank you so much preset. Your being here shake. He's a democrat who won in Montana on the same night, that President Trump dominated that state is he the man with formula to take back the White House for Democrats..

"And that, by the way means, they've, they've made it harder for American businesses to compete and for us to create new jobs. Good jobs. So the president has I think properly said enough of this, we're going to say, stop the Tuli has is, of course, a an economic tool tariff tool. And I think it calls for recognition that some parts of our society, are going to be more harm than than others. Those that are particularly harmed, and those include some farmers, whether it's pork or whether it's soybeans, they're going to need some help to weather the storm, because the president is not backing down in this China has got to stop cheating in order for us to be able to trade with them on an open and fair basis. Do you think it's a mistake that the president went after Mexico and Canada, I with steel and aluminum tariffs as opposed to trying to unite the world against China? Yeah. I do think that was a mistake. I think my own view is that we should have gone after China and Mexico Canada, the EU aluminum steel, all those things should have been put aside and till we went on a United basis pushing back against China. But the president has his own negotiating strategy, perhaps, it'll work out in the best at the end the deal that he's worked out with Mexico and China is better than the current NAFTA deal. So he's gotten some prog. Press. But look for me all the focus ought to be on China. And I think the aluminum and steel tariffs. Bad idea auto tariffs. Bad idea, look the only place that I wanna see tariffs really push against a bad actor as against China. I want to get response to this new Alabama law. President Trump just tweeted last night saying he's pro-life, but he supports exceptions for abortion bans for rape incest, the life of the mother Alabama's law does not do that. There are no exceptions for rape, or incest. Supporters say they're trying to bring case to the supreme court that could overturn Roe versus Wade, ultimately do support the Alabama law..

Along tapper in Washington, where the state of our union is surprised, the first Republican congress has now said that President Trump's conduct meets the threshold for impeachment may long Twitter threat on Saturday, Republican congressman Justin Amash of Michigan released his principal conclusions after reading the redacted Malla report, and he accuses attorney general Bill Barr of misrepresenting, the information, and he states quote, contrary to bars portrayal Muller's report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions at a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment specifically, quote, multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of Justice. The Republican congressman also takes a swipe at his colleague standing few members of congress even read Muller's report their minds were made up based on partisan affiliation. This is, of course, just one Republican, who has a history of bucking, the Trump administration, especially on constitutional issues, but the move is significant because he is the first to break with his party on the. Issue and is announcement officially makes impeachment calls on the hill. Bipartisan President Trump fired back this morning tweeting, quote, never a fan of Justin Amash, a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies here with me to discuss this, and much more is Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah.

I have once I've gotten older, and my, you know, I don't think it's best for a party candidate who. And of course, you have there's a handful one of the one of the people in our stories a twenty six year old county chairman in Dallas county, Iowa Des Moines, and he was talking about how Hillary Clinton campaign at the bowling alley in twenty sixteen that aids demanded that he turn the lanes off. So that she wouldn't be tempted into bowling and embarrass herself by betraying up poor bowling. Well. Smith and Dallas county was saying that.

"Cancer the child stunning is. I learned that, in thirty three states infant care costs exceed the average cost of college tuition. In the states house that lack of affordable. High-quality childcare impact racial equity and if so what should The childcare policies, that are, working to address at fundamental inequality there this is a very complex face but a very important. Space and as I say because Mr. Keller cared so much about children this is a space where we, have invested for decades the first. Thing I'd like to say is I believe. That dollar spent in early childhood, education as soon as possible are the best our spat. And we all know that your return. On your dollar in this space is thirteen to one so it is very important that we and all of. Our states fully embrace early childhood education and development but it's, also a workforce issue none of these issues are silo or isolated so in the case of workforce access to early childhood care. And development is, a problem The cost is one impediment Space emphasis is an, issue quality is an issue and one of the things we're learning is that employers understand this just as well as we do in the philanthropic sector because a great space for for childcare, creates a more attentive. Worker a more productive worker and so employers understand that if we don't, deal with the childcare issue we are also. Impacting economic growth and development and some of the things that we've been doing is creating multisectoral tables were employers are sitting side by side with parents who have children and people who are trying to support the sector to come up with very innovative solutions around how you marry all of these issues and create systems that actually work and Today their fragmented we haven't spoken with one another And so you know some of the work that we're doing even in Michigan where we're thinking about how the employers might even have some. Of these settings close to where the job is we're. Thinking about the time that, child childcare is. Available we need second shift opportunities third. Shift opportunities we also are thinking about the, pipeline you can create of employment for childcare providers and. This is a market that has been under developed community, colleges can play a part in building a pipeline which could also lead to the teacher shortage. And the pipeline that we had there as well so there's a lot of work going on and it is some of the, most important. Work in this space around workforce That is great that governors clearly occupy kind of unique role In our? States and collectively have you identified a challenge to racial equity you believe the governors are, uniquely situated to, make significant progress? In, addressing in our states and if so what. Is that yes I have a few examples The first. Example that I think I'm really excited about, is some work that we have done in Michigan and governor Snyder was a part of this work but I sit on a workforce, task force and again this task force includes employers it includes the public sector and other providers and as the employers were thinking about the trucking industry of the future and looking at barriers to employment in a city like Detroit what they, learned is more than half the drivers in? Detroit were off the road because of driver responsibility fees and different taxes per se that. Were preventing them, to keep their? Licenses, and the employers were saying These fees are so, unbearable that they do create. A physical barrier for people to work and, too many people are out of the market because of these fees and so because we identified that we took that conversation to the, governor and the employers were champions of this work and thank goodness our governor understands economic growth and development and signed a law to eliminate these driver responsibility fees because he knew the. Connection to growth and prosperity So that's just. One example I think another example that we're working on is is how do you provide training opportunities for people who are maybe mid, career and want to be reeducated or certify in another area that's part of our initiative that will be enrolling tomorrow good jobs for all Americans Governor Steve Bullock of the n. g. sort of mid career? Folks and how can we also ensure the we're addressing..
