"Have the example of the hastert rule. Most of us don't really know so much about the legislative machinery. We just remember schoolhouse. Rock and how a bill becomes a law and it's so much not that the hastert rule is an example of where party. Partisan of control has really co-opted the way laws are made for the purpose of benefiting the parties instead of results in the public interest. And what the hastert rule says and it's not written down. It's a tradition. Should we call the hastert tradition. But it's the hastert rule and it says that no speaker of the house from either party will allow a vote on the floor of the house unless a majority of the majority which is to say a majority of the speakers. Party wants that bill to pass and that means that legislation supported by a majority of the house or majority of the country sometimes has no chance of passing because they'll never even be a vote and by the way it's the same in the senate so that's fundamentally undemocratic and those are the kinds of rules we have to look at. I'll tell you again. Remember my song that. I want to sing looking for love and all the wrong places. We are all looking at the filibuster as if that's the only piece of legislative machinery the only rule that could or should be changed. I don't wanna get into whether the filibusters good idea or not. I'm going to say there are other rules that we would absolutely.

"And half about how they did when we were there so presence at war suggests that you're missing the first part at the other thing is that in calling a presence of war I was trying to make the point that president to take us into wars there are other category that's different from almost every other president angel on your basic premise in this book is that we're supposed to under the constitution have Congress declared war but we kind of forgotten to do that it seems to be true anyone know the last time Congress declared war. yes Sir. our route thirty to forty three during World War two have we had any wars since nineteen forty to nineteen forty three so we've gotten out of this habit of what the constitution says which is that if someone wants to World Congress Hastert why did the founding fathers of the concert concerts conventions say the president is the commander in chief but he or she cannot decide to go to war why did they let the Congress to that are when the founders were riding our constitution one of the biggest things that they were worried about was that they would write a constitution that would lead to a dictatorship or a monarchy exactly what they were trying not to do and because of their study of history they found that one of the ways that happened was that monarchs are dictators would fabricate reasons for war usually in Europe and and say we have to go to one of the country would unite behind the king or the dictator and totalitarianism greater totalitarianism would follow so they felt that it was very important that the president of the United States not be the one that had the word power that was in the seventeen eighties.
Why The Times Published a Photo of Drowned Migrants
"The migrant crisis on the US Mexico border continues to confront political leaders, from the White House to congress to the debate stage. The latest development reports of horrific conditions for children at detention centers in that photo of migrant father Oscar Martinez Ramirez and his young daughter Valeria, who drowned in the Rio Grande that photo helped spark action under this week on Capitol Hill. House speaker Nancy Pelosi fought with Republicans and members of our own caucus to add language to an emergency aid Bill, that would further hold the Trump administration accountable, but on Thursday, the speaker said, House Democrats would reluctantly pass the Senate Bill, which included one billion from border facilities, and close to three billion for migrant children. It passed three hundred five votes to one hundred and two votes. Joining me tonight, Dan ball. Chief correspondent for the Washington Post Susan page Washington bureau chief for USA today, coral Hulse chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times, and author of confirmation bias and Kimberly. Atkins, senior Washington news correspondent for WB. You are Boston's NPR news station. Susan, you're writing a biography of speaker Pelosi, she moved forward on a Bill. She didn't wanna pass why. Because it was better than nothing that getting the four point five billion that would that would go along way to helping this terrible situation with migrant children, who have been separated from their parents was worth the cost of taking a Bill, that had been negotiated on the Senate side and was opposed by some members of congress. This was this was a vote that she she worked. She has a divided caucus on this issue. But I think that portray this as a big loss for her is. Incorrect. She held control over caucus. She got it through because she thought it was better than the alternative of letting go down. What's the price she pays Carl with liberals who are frustrated that they took up a Bill passed by Senate? There's a little cost to this. But a few things went on there. I totally agree one hundred percent with you. This is what happens in divided government at some point, you have to make a deal. This was a Bill negotiated in the Senate between Democrats and Republicans. This was the and what it allowed them to do. I was actually surprised they could get to a Finnish here. What are the loud them to do was to be able to go home and say, listen, we've really addressed this crisis? And I always say to it's not a bad thing for Nancy Pelosi sometimes to get attacked from the left. You know. It shows cheese being a pragmatic moderate manager, the house was it perfect. No. But it was an accomplishment, and they were able to get it together. Those votes were pretty strong and she complied with the Hastert rule, which we all know she had more than half of her caucus. Voting for this Bill. Does the Trump administration continue its hardline policies, we've seen a shakeup at the department of homeland security border patrol short and they do they see this as a winning issue? They say that border security and being tough on immigration is what's going to get President Trump reelected. It's what's gonna keep Republicans in control of the Senate, and they're not going to give that up or anything. They're going to push even harder. We've already seen them labeling Democrats as wanting open borders, really attacking them for, for policies like wanting to give illegal immigrants healthcare. They see this as their biggest issue that helps fuel them forward in twenty
Meet Lauren Underwood, the 32-year-old Democrat hoping to shake up politics
"Inskeep. When Representative Lauren Underwood welcomed us into her office. She was just finishing lunch at her desk. She's a new member of the house, and she's one reason Democrats won control last fall. She captured the fourteenth district of Illinois which had been reliably Republican. Her reward is a modest office space near the capital and a chance to share a Washington apartment. The roommate. Another house freshmen California's Katie hill, are you living this kind of insane sort of grown up college life of it is not even MAC glamorous. We are scheduled from like seven thirty AM to probably ten ten thirty pm both get home very late. Unlike do you remember that meeting that happened at ten AM wasn't that so crave? And she is like e Agra not that glamorous. Maybe but under what is among the young diverse house freshmen who've made a lot. Of this year's political news. She medicine the brief downtime between her Caesar salad and a press conference. She's thirty two born in nineteen Eighty-six, a former nurse. I am black. I know I'm black fourteenth. Now, I'm black, and I am a millennial no woman. And so do I have an interesting perspective on issues that impact? Those demographic groups directly sure, although Underwood says she can represent people who identify differently. She faces a different situation than her outspoken, fellow freshman, Alexandria, Cossio Cortes, who represents a safely democratic district in New York Underwood is more typical of the Democrats who flipped seats in two thousand eighteen she's from a mid western district of suburbs and farms with a minority of people of color. It's congressman was once Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert in two thousand sixteen the district voted for President Trump. The reason we visited Underwood. Was to hear how a democrat works to fit that district. I want to note that you're doing something that in American politics was really rare until recent years, and that is you are an American African American, and you're representing an overwhelmingly white district. We haven't seen that happen in the congress, and yet and this hundred sixteen congress, I'm not the only one end so representations important, and the idea that only certain folks can be representatives is one that I think that we have worked to completely redefine her district extends from Chicago suburbs to the Illinois prairie, and she says she is determined to support mostly white farmers as anybody else. Well, I think that there's a lot of issues that help communities of color that also helped our community. She campaigned by saying she would better stand up for the district's interests than the Republican incumbent when President Trump's trade war affected, Illinois farmers. She. Brought it up. She noticed the separation of migrant families at the border captured her district's attention. So she brought that up to in this district that the cook political report rated as an plus five and was a lean Republican until the weekend before the election. We won every county even the most rural. There are people who supported us who have never voted for a democrat before we have people who will never ever ever ever. Call of south the democrat people who voted for Donald Trump voted for you two hundred percent hundred percent. And this is about representation and values and for us that issue was so straight it with healthcare, and what happened and the spring seventeen around of Amakhir care repeal, and, you know, our prior representatives votes on the. American Healthcare Act. Do you think you're to the left of the average voter in your district when it comes to healthcare? You've said if I'm not mistaken, you might like Medicare for all if it could be done. But I bet the average Republican would not like that. I don't think. So I would challenge that statement because I believe that healthcare is a human, right? And based on conversations, and I had many of them might you throughout the year and a half that Iran that a lot of people believe that as well. Do you need to talk about healthcare in a particular way to avoid those kind of hot button phrases that set people on the words, we use matter, and I've cautioned a lot of my colleagues here about literally the words will be used to talk about issues that we care about. Right. Student loan debt is an issue that is not partisan. It is very clear, and it's impacting so many individuals families. Few start calling things free or for all we loosen people. We can talk about the solutions in a way that's inclusive. Right. So what have we talk about creating a modern financial aid system? Well, we have Pell grants that reflect the true cost of college. And we have subsidized student loans that fill that gap. Some people might call that free college for everybody or whatever. But the people that speak in these like, hashtag, e type phrases, do not always have lots of solutions underneath it. The hashtag is the polarizing thing it may draw some support to the idea, but it also drives people and I'm into solutions, and I am happy to speak in paragraph statements to talk about the solutions because guess what problems are not always straight it at one hundred forty characters and solutions are not always illustrated and hundred forty characters this lawmaker who carefully considers what to say chose to say very little about. Another lawmakers choice of words the day. We met Laura and Underwood was the day last week when the house voted to criticize. Antisemitism. The resolution answered remarks by Underwood's fellow freshman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota that issue divided Democrats and Underwood was determined not to give it anymore fuel. Did she go too far? I don't have a comment. You don't. I don't. You've been pretty Frank on every other issue Frank on this one. And why what do you mean? You mean, you you don't know what to think about it? Comment on it in the end, Lauren Underwood like other Democrats voted for the resolution condemning antisemitism and other forms of hate. But as she represents what is now swing district one expected
