Democrats passed a one point. Nine trillion dollar stimulus bill that will cut child poverty in half and deliver urgently-needed relief on it. Just it's sort of extraordinary that they that not one. Republican voted for a bill. That has you know a in a pandemic that killed five hundred. What twenty five thousand. Americans are more than that.

No i i. i don't. I don't know what the you know. The message can possibly be well. As you tweeted representative he said as americans suffer and demand Relief and systemic change republicans across the country of united to suppress the boat. It's disgusting. We must pass the john. Lewis voting rights act. I keep saying. I only anything else matters unless we passed that because these bills are just. They dropped any pretense of voter fraud. They are just absolutely trying to stop. Cut the amount of people that can vote right cutting rolling voting to try to get away with vote by mail. Trying i mean i. I can't even keep up with all the techniques right georgia. They thought well you know that. Sunday voting where black people how souls to the polls that lets them vote.

Hopes dimming for another round of stimulus checks in 2020
"Talk about stimulus checks and also the economic relief package being considered by Congress. Now, one of the bills we had heard most recently did not include stimulus checks to go out. Now I'm just seeing this cross The Washington Post White House, pushing Senate GOP to include stimulus checks in that relief package. Let's find out the status of that first, and I know congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. Gracious enough to come on the show to talk about this male issue that some people are dealing with, But I just wanted to begin with that because I saw that cross and I know that's on a lot of people's minds. Thanks first of all for coming on the show. Thanks for having me on the show. This is the most important question I think right now is what are we going to do to relieve the terrible suffering the unnecessary suffering of so many people? I am All in for a they caught a stimulus check. I'm talking about it as a survival track. People are just simply running out of money. And without that, we can, you know, see people who have foreclosures and all kinds of disaster, including that even being able To put enough food on the table. As it is one out of four American Children is what is called food insecure about what that means in real English is they don't know where their next meal is going to come from Andre. That's just, you know, in the richest country in the world unacceptable, so I have been pushing very hard. Or this the cat to come to people's doors. In addition, though, it does seem to the the release package does seem to include Um, unemployment insurance money now, the day after Christmas. About half a million Illinois ins and 6.4 Million Americans will run out of unemployment checks. I mean, that kid, they will run out of money. And so what has been proposed instead of the last time when it was fixed out 6 $600 a week that would come to families. It looks like we may be able to get $300 a week to families, which is certainly better than that. Nothing but not a replacement. Or the individual checks that most people can take Take advantage of you talking about that federal boost, So it was 600 this time around. It might be 300 that extra on top of the unemployment that the state offers. No. Yes, That's right. Uh huh. Exactly. So we'll see. But you know, unemployment is is running out. And so you know, that may be the only money people are are getting and that's like I'm so much in favor of that of that. What did I say? Not not a stimulus tax, but a survival check. No, And that's that's a fair point. Because you know, some people only received the 1200 bucks and have had difficulties getting unemployment. You've We've had people call into the show, and so they still can't get through and lots of problems there. So That's not enough to just make survival. It's not enough as you point out, so I hope that there is some movement there. Do you believe right now, From what you know, in Congress that there will be a stimulus check like the $1200.1 in some amount That is also coming our way again. You know, the Republicans don't all thing to be on the same page. Mitch McConnell was not talking about a attack. The White House is the president is I'm hoping at the end of the day and that end of the day. I think it's not going to come until next week. It doesn't look like we're gonna arise. That compromise. Um, this week a little worse. Certainly. You know, the Democrats were certainly ready to get it to get it done to get some help on the way. Um, So I'm hoping that the president will prevail issues really pushing for that, and that will see that survival check. Can.

"Shame is to me with extremely local news. Good morning. Shame, Miss, Let's start with what's going on in the far North side. Anybody getting their mail these days? Well, if you listen to the people of Rogers Park, the interest No or very slowly, this has been a bit of recurring problem for for years. We frequently get complaints about just packages. Don't show up. Mail doesn't show up. They've had several town hall meetings up in Rogers Park spills over into Edgewater is well, but this week there was a town hall with representative Jan Schakowsky and she really She said. She's really been hammered with complaints, particularly in the last couple of months or so, her office alone, you know, not exactly the place you'd think to complain about mail service. But I have gotten 150 complaints just in the last couple weeks, So it's a problem. She she You know, said she was taking it very seriously. And she's uh there's gonna send eight additional postal carriers to the Rogers Park office to try to get the mail out. But it Z. You know, it's it's obviously a very frustrating thing. You know, even something as simple or is, you know it's boring as getting your bills sent to you. You know, if you're like me and your payments they come in. Don't necessarily remember all of them. Unless you know, unless you've got a reminder you can. You know they can just go unpaid for awhile. But Christmas cards obviously packages everything that we're ordering online so we don't go out. So, um, hopefully help is on the way. The congresswoman I told folks earlier this week, but it remains this be seen because, like I said, we've We've been hearing about these problems in Rogers Park for a long time and also West Ridge in Edgewater for four years, right? Right, And it's you know, in past cases when they've had town halls of the postal Services has blamed it on basically just like a lack of staffing. Um a lot of turnover. It's the carriers haven't really gotten good at the state long enough to get good at the routes. But as we all saw in the last couple months there changes at the post office is well, that is really impacted service and I think that plays a lot into it now, so So we'll see. You know, Hopefully, things start to get better. We get more people hire there as well. As you know, some of hopefully, when the vaccine gets around, we get old. Don't get just a little bit more stability and the workers. They're taking the jobs and keeping the jabs right. What happened in Pilsen with this historic landmark district plan? Yes, I think we've talked about this one. Before there was a push to landmark are a huge stretch of Pilsen, Um around 18th Street and Blue Island Avenue about 900 buildings in a A mile and a half stretched over there really beautiful buildings There were all built given about 18 75 for about 1910. There's a push to landmark them to put restrictions on demolitions and what you could do to the facades. But it was a lot of pushback from from the neighbors. The landowners they were really while they don't want people coming in and demolishing off their history, they also don't want to give away the power to to make changes to their own land. So yesterday, the alderman said they heard the residents lounge. Clear. They killed this plan to landmark that that historic district it was. It was a unanimous vote within one of the City Council's committees, the zoning committee and, um, basically, it's really just gonna put this thing on the shelf for a long time. Pilsen is one of the you know the hottest neighborhoods in Chicago. Right now, there's a lot of people moving in. There's a lot of development and the elected officials There are really trying hard to both, Um, you know, tow. Both make it desirable place to live but also a place where the current residents don't have to move out because the prices go up so much. So, um, it's a mixed. It's definitely a mixed bag. They Not protecting these buildings might be a way to toe lock in some stability in the neighborhood, but but ultimately they're gonna have to find some other ways to sort of slow the gentrification process and Pilsen. And when you've got a hot happening neighborhood like that, you get controversies like that one and then back up North and Avondale. I've said this before. Every once in a while. We're hearing about somebody opening up food establishment and you know, all we're talking about our business is closing, so I love giving a little publicity's to somebody who's trying to start it up in this environment. Tell us about what's going on in Avondale. Right. I promised to bring you and your listeners some positive cookie news. Everyone so well. Here it is. Angela Diaz.

Website. You can also get a mint and grocery stores all around the area. It's under the brand name your cookie, and she's gotten some rave reviews.

You know, you could really make these with Pretty much a noticeable to the to the person eating it, which is, which is the benefit, you know, you think I don't want to give up anything.

"It doesn't raise the same problems with the private insurance companies because they're not being put out of business. They still have their private insurance parts, they still have the Medicare Advantage part. And so I think it's a way of giving everyone a safety net. You don't have coverage. You haven't gotten employer coverage you get into Medicare, and that's the safety net. And by the way, it also slightly enhances the benefits that are offered by Medicare and Medicaid includes vision care hearing care and dental care. So I think that's a very interesting way of going. It simplifies the system still has a role for private insurers. So they don't oppose the reform and has an easy way to get the universal coverage because everyone's auto wouldn't rolled into Medicare unless they have an alternative kind of worth pointing out in that regard that Medicare Advantage programs. It's really been the sweet spot for a lot of these private health insurance companies they're making a lot of their profits there. So that would you would think tend to lower their resistance to the kind of program that you're talking about not only lower their resistance. I think you might actually get them campaigning for it. And it's not only the private insurance company. So, you know, the traditional United's and anthems and Blue Cross Blue shield plan who which like Medicare. There are a lot of new entrance into this space that have a lot of creative ideas about how to make health insurance much more friendly to make the patient experience, much better. And frankly were were, you know, we don't know for sure, but there are reasons to think that it's a better managed system. They limit the number of doctors and hospitals. So that people actually are steered towards better more efficient doctors. And better quality doctors one of the problems, we know on Medicare Medicare patient with a chronic illness. You have more than ten doctors you're on lots of medications and the coordination of care is now the optimal and one of the things we know we have to as a country get more towards is better coordination of gear, especially for people with complex chronic illnesses. And so I think that there's you know, again, the the rose Delara Jan Schakowsky Medicare for America Bill is something that ought to be seriously taken take a look at because I think it hits the sweet sloppy take really good policy and politically viable, or at least not antagonizing large segments, a very powerful interest groups. So that's one of the reasons I find it appealing. Okay. We will take another pause right here. But we will be continuing our conversation with Dr Zeke Emanuel, Zeke has been just great. He's going to stay with us. We yet another segment where we're gonna take a little bit of a look backwards as I mentioned earlier, and as you may already know Zeki manual was really one of the architects of ObamaCare, the Affordable Care Act, very interested. Get his take on whether we have seen true benefits from the fact that we have the Affordable Care Act or whether the critics have turned out to be well, more, correct? It hasn't been good. I think I know where zeke's going to go with this. I think you're going to be very interested to hear what he says hope you'll stay with us for the next part of our interview and a reminder that if you have something to say about this, and I think you do give us a call.

"So the Democrats pass a resolution in the house of representatives that does absolutely nothing. It's like you're green new deal. It's an important thing to do we need to do this. But we can't vote on. We don't want vote on it. We don't want to vote on it. It's just a guideline. Well, the world's going to end in twelve years. What do you want me naming guideline? You don't want to jump on this right away. We're going to die in twelve years. No. That's not what that's exactly what she said. The green new deal. She wanted to get rid of cars all of those things. Well, the Democrats. Passed a resolution. That has no teeth that has no meeting it passes. No law. It changes. No behaviors it changes nothing, but it was to address the overtly antisemitic anti Israel, anti Jew statements made by freshman, Representative Ilhan, Omar from the state of Minnesota. She is a Somali refugee, and she is anti Israel. She isn't just she isn't saying we shouldn't be so closely aligned with Israel. She is a believer that the Israelis should either be annihilated or pushed off the land. So that the Palestinians can take the land back. She is associated with care. That's the center for American Islamic relations an organization that has been put on a watch list because of their financial ties to the terrorist organization HAMAs. Hamas a very big hater. Of israel. She is anti-jew for sure. So she said, so many agree GIS things so many people including Democrats up in arms. They got to do something about this. We're gonna do something. So they were going to pass this anti hate piece of legislation resolution, whatever you wanna call it. Well, it's been watered down so much. It doesn't mention the anti-jew comments. And it doesn't mention Ilhan, Omar. It doesn't mention anything. It basically says we hate hate and hate should stop. Because hate is hateful. So what did you hear the excuses to excuses? I'll start with a Representative named Jan Schakowsky. Jan Schakowsky makes this excuse for Ilhan, Omar because I think in part Republicans, and the media have blown this up to be much more than it is Ilhan, Omar is a refugee from Somalia, she comes from a different culture. She has things to learn. Oh, she comes from a different culture. Oh, okay. Now, I get it. Let's hear from everybody's favorite. You wanna he this? I'm just want you to listen carefully.

"For a while this week. There was a thought that the house of representatives where Omar serves as a freshman from Minnesota might vote on a resolution condemning her anti-semitism, then it was thought that maybe said resolution would come up for a vote, but wouldn't mention her name and instead condemn anti-semitism. Generally. Then it was thought that there would be a resolution that would condemn both anti-semitism and Islam a phobia. Now, there's no timetable for voting on anything. What's hard is bringing a resolution to the house floor condemning representatives bigotry when you don't want to and you're afraid of making people mad even though what we're talking about. Here is ju- hatred. We're talking about a member of congress attacking a small minority group. Yeah. I know Jews don't feel small right Juzar prosperous, many Jews hold positions of power and authority in the United States. This is true. It's also true. That Jews constitute two percent of the population in the United States in one thousand nine hundred fifty four percent juicer shrinking in size, not growing. We are smaller not larger in number. So what we have here in Omar is a member of a larger minority group, bullying, a smaller minority group, it shouldn't be hard condemning such a thing. Now, what's hard or at the very least far harder than it should be saying, she's an anti Semite when you're a demo. Member of the house or the democrat leaders of the house Nancy Pelosi speaker of the house said she believed Omar's remarks, quote, we're not intentionally anti-semitic. Steny Hoyer house majority leader said Wednesday that he did not believe that Omar was an anti Semite Pelosi and Hoyer aren't idiots and they weren't born yesterday. I bet a million dollars. I know Jews and money. It's always money. They know perfectly. Well, what Omar is the thing is it matters less to them than being on the right side of their party's young vanguard in the house. Here's another Representative. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois who told politico she doesn't fake Omar is an anti Semite. Politico makes much of the fact that Schakowsky is a Jew, and she is shell so happens to be a supporter and devotee of j street, the democratic organization that exists to criticize Israel and the pro Israel community in the United States. The very fact of j streets existence, and that Schakowsky herself survives and thrives as an anti Israel. Jew gives the lie to Omar's repugnant contention about Jewish control of the conversation on Israel and the Palestinians in America. That's about the only good thing. I can say about the views of j street and Jan Schakowsky about Schakowsky running interference for Omar the anti-semites. There's nothing good. That can be said other than that Yom Kippur comes up in seven months and on that day of atonement. She should beat her chest blue for her sins against her own people. Representative Ianna Presley another leftist freshmen in the new congress spoke. These words about the idea of a resolution against anti-semitism, quote, we need to have an equity in our outrage Islamaphobia needs to be included in this. We need to denounce all forms of hate. There is no hierarchy of hurt. No. But there's a hierarchy of the hate Omar, expresses. And that hierarchy features Jews at the top Jews in the middle Jews all the way down if Omar were guilty of islamophobic as well. That too should be included in a resolution condemning her doing whatever you can to dilute a resolution against real active anti-semitism in this fashion is called whitewashing. No, one started this conversation about Ilhan, Omar, save Ilhan, Omar and are fanatical and obsessional expressions of the most destructive form of hate in the modern era. It's a scandal that she was elected to congress in the first place, but that's the fault of the voters of her district, and they should suffer for their choice by seeing her sidelined and their interests ill represented, but how her fellow Democrats in congress choose to conduct themselves with her in their midst is one of the ways they will be judged when the time comes for them to be judged by voters and higher forces. That's Jon Potter. It's in the in the New York Post, the headline Democrats refusal to call audio Hano Mars anti-semitism just appalling, I will in our very next commercial break put that article up on Twitter. Follow me on Twitter. At Mark Davis. All right. So back to the audio here with a couple minutes, we have left in in this segment because what I think the thing I want to do next. Here's how Kim Jefferies saying. There is no rise in anti-semitism here. I guess he doesn't want to be lectured by Mitch McConnell about it. It's cut number nine, Mr. Jeffreys, go. Not a rise of anti-semitism in the house of Representative. There's a rise of antisemitic behavior and activity and violence in the country. And it's irresponsible for Mitch McConnell to try to politicize this issue. And when he does he ever said anything about the hateful remarks that continued to flow out of sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue. So we're not going to be lectured by Mitch McConnell on anything. The thing is though that that spin about racism from the White House is just that it's been it is a trope is a mean, it is a myth. Let me go back to the always entertaining ro Khanna seventeenth district of California. This is cut eleven asked about whether bribes Mazzone, she'll be removed from the house foreign affairs committee, three guests not. She just misspoke go. When you oppose any Republican efforts Kevin McCarthy and others talking about trying to force Omar off, the foreign affairs committee. Absolutely.

This is several years ago. What do we have the date on that Sherry two thousand nine two thousand nine we've saved this all these years later, so two thousand nine she's speaking to a group of activists progressives and she's sharing the account of a conversation. She had with someone and she tells them the goal is to get rid of the private insurance companies. That's the goal. So she's saying this in two thousand nine behind closed doors amongst cheers. She would never say publicly but fast forward now ten years later, man, they're out of the box that it that editor bullying. Here's what they believed in two thousand nine.

That's Jan Schakowsky a democrat from Illinois. Yes. She didn't realize she was on. She was screaming to a bunch of supporters and they screamed right back. So this kind of profanity does it bother you because I, you know, people call into my show, and they say lock her up that is unbecoming. And I always say guys. Trump is no different from everybody else out there. And I'm not impressed. I'm not impressed.

Are you offended on the border in Arizona? I am offended. You are now. What what do you say? When Nancy Pelosi says, it's nothing more than the president is something the president has said. I think it's shameful that after everything women went through to get the right to vote and to have equality and now that we finally have a quality. And we have avoided you get this idiot to come up on stage and ruin it. You wonder what the the say if you're a member of the Muslim community in Michigan? Where that where she was elected to imagine they say, oh here we are. And where we're trying to play up this historic moment, and people might be suspicious of her. And then she comes out and does this. I would think that the community would be angry with her. I hope they're angry with her. And I hope she comes down to auto zone on the southern border with Mexico grabbed a trash bag and comes with me to pick up trash and empty water, gallons and shoes and clothes and feces, and all this crap that these are legal aliens, leaving the desert he should have put her energy into that not into calling calling him the m effort terrible shameful.

"Ban company loans to executives and gave job protection to whistle blowers. I knew there was something good is from two thousand two and it went nowhere. And he was in two thousand two. Yeah. I wonder if it's the same saw Baines because his father was active in those as soon as a Senator, right? Yeah. I, but it doesn't matter what the point is that he he he, you know, in this instance, pointing at his really good in this, you know, one thing not taking money from the subcommittee. He's on. But you know, what Jan Schakowsky is on that that subcommittee as well. High up in subcommittee. Lot of a lot of senior already on that subcommittee. She doesn't take money either shouldn't have zero. But she obviously has the the money that she's taking is obviously coming from individuals not from corporate tax. You know, it was something like, you know, six hundred thirty one dollars and fifteen cents. You know? It's not it's you know, if someone takes it doesn't matter that does not make them into a corporate she'll in any way, shape or form. In fact, they should be celebrated for doing that. Because that means they're not taking they're not taking dark money. They're not taking sewer money. They're taking money from individuals who. Who are you know, just wanna give it for the same reasons that you, and I give money aren't expect to get back for it. Except the knowledge that I help with somebody good into office. That's it and the story, right? But an and the third person, and there's only three who who are that way this Sarbanes. The Jan Schakowsky and the third one was. A lady from Tampa, Kathy, Kathy. Wow. When I got a letter today from another progressive organization, you know, saying Kathy castor is a hor- to bring big, Bob, blah. What he'll it's not true. It's just not true. She's she does she get some money from from these people. Yes. But she's not getting tens and hundreds and thousands of dollars. Let alone millions of dollars. You know, a lot of members of congress. Sometimes like yell at me for for writing about this stuff because they say, it doesn't affect votes, and I'm not selling my vote to somebody for fifteen hundred dollars. It's not gonna happen. But it means something to me when I see somebody who won't take the money. Now, she also has said, and she said directly to Alexandria and Allegheny acknowledged that in in a tweet or Facebook. I can't remember where I read it was. Either Twitter Facebook Alexandria wrote that she is proud of Kathy castor saying that she will not take any money. I saw gas and oil in on this committee. And now where they differ is that cast your says is impossible to prevent other people from taking money, right? Caster said that was a first amendment issue or something which doesn't make sense. That's what all members of congress say remember who wants to argue in favor of this type of bribery. The always say it's a first amendment issue. So no matter if you talk to a Republican, you talk to a democrat, they will anyone of them the first thing they'll say, they all have that that down every one of them has the same story. And it's shocked me to be hearing it from people word for word as though they're all reading from the same little people paper. Right. So you're happy Castro did say that. So so let's put it like this. They'll try looking for members for the committee. So it's not up to. Closey to pick the Republicans. That's going to be done by a real oil Munster McCaw Kevin McCarthy, Kevin McCarthy district oil district, and he's one of the worst offenders of people who taking money from the oil industry, literally millions and millions of dollars flow through him. And he's the one that.
