A Look at What’s in the Stimulus Package Trump Signed
"In Congress, the debate over how much and win a new covert 19 stimulus package could come too. Fruition is happening on the floor of the Senate. Everybody's in a bad position, and we're also in a moment we're about to overcome this virus vaccine out there, so this is the time we have to do this. No President Trump repeatedly asked for $2000 direct payment checks. So how much would that end up? Costing this number will be very hard for fiscal conservatives in the Senate to swallow if Congress is to swap out the $600 stimulus checks for $2000. It would cost roughly 464 billion, which is nearly half of the entire cove in 19 relief bill this, according to an estimate by the Joint Committee on Taxation Currently, the $600 checks cost about 160 billion in the cove in 19 Relief bill. Senate Republicans have for months stressed over increased government spending and are likely to oppose adding more to the national debt. Catherine Folders, ABC NEWS, Washington

Summerfest announces new three-weekend format for 2021
"New announcement. About what Summer fest 2021 is going to look like and we're joined right now. In the first Midwest Bank hotline by summer fest, CEO Don Smiley, Don. Good Afternoon. Good afternoon, Jeff. How are you? I am Well, thank you. Okay, Let's talk about the big news. What Summer fest. 2021 is going to look like and then we'll kind of explore why That decision was made, but so what? It's gonna look like Sure we're we're changing the festival format. The three weekends versus 11 days, so we'll start on June 24th and work 24 25 26. July, 123 and July 89 10. We will eliminate two Sundays, two Wednesdays and a Tuesday. That's five days. So what the essence of this is and and what we discovered through? Surveys and focus groups in in in in and data mining was that our customers want Mohr national bands. Earlier in the day. Can so We're going to take the expenses from those five days that I just gave to you and we're going to reallocate them to the weekends. Where will have local bands up early, but well, you you can picture a national band. Being on the Harley stage or the Miller stage at 5 P.m. and then another headliner at nine or 10 o'clock that evening, so it's an effort to go after more quality. Versus quantity and really fish. When the fish are biting, more people are more apt to be out on the weekends. Thursday, Friday Saturday with disposable income And And in using their energy entertainment dollars on those days versus the five days that I gave you, which, really when it came right down to it, they were really weak and that is W e a K. There were weak days for us, and we were spending a lot of money to produce those days and our money can be better spent in reallocating tow three weekends done. This is just in some ways respects. The logical progression in number means. Summer fest originally was always Thursday through Sunday, 11 days and a number of years ago. You made the decision. To to drop that first Monday because of a variety of things, including, I think week attendant, So this is really just kind of a logical progression of that I would imagine. It is. I mean, you know when you look at Theaters and restaurants and so on. I mean, you find a lot of businesses closed on Mondays. But when you're running a music festival The expenses are are are significant and Whatever you can. Maximize those dollars on different days. We concluded that that's the way to go. Even though it's too less days we're gonna have we're gonna have better bands and we're gonna have the bands that our customers our fans are looking for is still at a very affordable price. We're still gonna have free gated missions. We're still gonna have promotion days. We're still gonna have Children's fast day. It's such a It's such so none of that's going to change. We're just going to camp up. No pun intended thie the quality of the of the bands that we signed and on top of that on the fringes. If you will, pre summer fest in post summer fast, we're going to do a lot of shows in the American family insurance amphitheater in the beam, O'Hare's Pavilion will probably do more shows. And those two buildings that in the history of the festival So there's going to be a lot of activity in that building. It was too bad we couldn't use it the summer Ah, it turned out beautiful. And I'm referring to the reconstruction of the amphitheater. So and I know we're not alone there. I mean, you know everyone's hurting, and that includes sports and in restaurants and businesses alike. We understand that, but we had it. We have a scheduled board meeting this morning. We went through all of this. It was a unanimous decision. And so while we do understand that there are Maur. Important things going on in our world today and in people's lives have changed because of coded and also social unrest. This is just one of those things that we had to get out there and get on with it for the planning of 21, Don't just so I'm clear that this is not a one off plan for 2021. This is this is the plan for Summer fest moving forward is that correct? We'll see. I mean, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that You know that This is a perfect plan. And if if it works if all of the data That we considered in making this decision plays out. Well, then it will be a nine day festival going forward. I mean, you know who's to say that there isn't a show on Wednesday night prior to the opening Thursday, and who's to say this might turn into a 10 Day festival? I mean, you know, everything changed with Kobe. Everyone's life has changed their personal life, their social life. All businesses have been affected. And and and we're not on an island here, so we really believe that we have to be flexible. We have to be creative. We have to be able to pivot when when it's necessary, and that's exactly what we're doing. We lost $10.4 million in 2020. That's Before depreciation by not operating summer fest or any other shows down here or the ethnic festivals, So that's quite a mountain to climb. To try to make that money back and start replenishing our reserves again after we put $10 million of our own money into the amphitheatre, which was a $51 million project, so You know, I have, really, I really couldn't tell you what the future holds. I can tell you exactly what 21 is planned for, And if for some reason we run into a fork in the road In 21. Well, then we'll make a decision. At that time when you mentioned the ethnic festivals. Does this new schedule for summer fest proper, have any Will it have any impact on any of the ethnic festivals and they're scheduling No. The ethnic festivals would have the same dates as they would have had in 20 Got it. One of the other things in your announcement today for the nine days of summer fest. It looks like eight of the days are already booked for the amphitheater, and it looks like you've got just a a killer lineup coming there. I can give them to you if you're interested. Sure. Okay. On June 24 we have Khalid 25 is Luke Bryan 26 is Justin Bieber. July 1st Dave Matthews. The second is blank. 1 82. The third is Halsey. The eighth is Stapleton and the 10th his guns and roses. So we have one day to fill July 9th. Actually, it's filled but we can announce it. Yes, and we have some other shows sprinkled in around those dates. Already. So I think that's one of the things that people need to recognize as well and in part because of the partnership you have with with live nation now, the summer fest grounds. There's even outside the parameters of the run of summer fest that the summer fest grounds we're going to be utilized, probably more than ever in 2021 with big shows, right? Yes, sir. That was a great deal We did with the Frank Brothers, which is the live nation partner here in Wisconsin and That will provide more more shows more opportunities it required. Um, the reconstruction of the amphitheater. If we didn't do that, we wouldn't be any more shows And you know, there are some shows that we won't get there. Some shows that just play that, you know, they just want to play indoors and will will not get a shot of those. And There's plenty of venues in town for for those bands to play indoors and then and then we're going to get a shot at at bands that want to play amphitheaters. So we feel like we're in good shape. They're in and we're set up for the future, and I'm sure there's going to be some traditionalists who look at this and say, I really I really missed that Tuesday's show or I can't believe they're doing away with opening day Wednesday, but This is kind of a new reality that you're dealing with in a festival. Look, Let's just, you know, get this out of the way. I mean, we know we're not going to get all the votes and we know that there will be you know, there will be some that don't agree, but you know, we're going off a day out of I, You know, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. I love that. I think that's passion. That's like arguing who should hit second or third and play right field or second base. I mean, if they're not talking about you, I mean, then you really have a problem. So You know, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. We're just going on the facts. We know what our attendance is going back. Years. Um For Thursday, Friday Saturday and we know what kind of revenue we do on those days and we know exactly what the expenses are so for us to set this up. And get it ready for future generations and replenish our reserve funds. This is the move that we need to make. Got it done. Smiley Summer fest CEO. Thanks so much for spending some time with me this afternoon. I always appreciate it.

"Jeff Wagner on WTMJ at so very glad to have you with us okay there's no question that what's going on over the course of the last month month and a half it's had a devastating impact on the economy you have people who have been S. take pay cuts you had people who have been laid off you have been to have people who have been furloughed and you have businesses that have closed in one of the big questions is are some of these business is going to re open again and that's that's one of the reasons why I think there's a lot of us who we want to see it happen just like yesterday you have to do it safely but I I think that you can can do that that's one of the the pushes meanwhile you've got the real world impact on people which is that they suddenly lose their job and I understand people say well folks should have everybody should have you know enough money in the bank to to last them you know six months or whatever and that's all well and good and some people do but for other people they they live paycheck to paycheck and suddenly losing your job that has a huge impact and then not knowing if you're going to have a job to come back to that that makes it even more of an impact so one of the things that that we did as part of the government is part of the cures act is they said look we we want to provide help to people who have been unemployed suddenly and we want to help them out beyond just the state unemployment comp now the way it works in this is that is it of course the players pay into the unemployment compensation fund and then what happens is when people lose their jobs as long as it's not because of their fault they can apply for unemployment compensation and they can get a percentage of what it was that they make right but one of the things you never want to do is you never want to encourage people to be financially incentivized to to not work so that's why unemployment compensation it's like a safety net but it's not designed to fully replace the amount of money that that people get because you don't you never never what you never wanted to be in a situation where somebody says well what why should I be working when I can make as much or almost as much money but seeing on unemployment Cup that's that happened to an extent ten twelve years ago when we were in the Great Recession and if you'll recall we have lots of lots of people who lost their jobs in in we were trying to figure out their workshops to replace it you know there was this employer just weren't hiring and all that type of stuff so the government kept either through the federal government or the state government is very from state to state extending and extending unemployment comp and what happened is there were eight percentage of people and you know you can argue about whether was a ten percent or twenty percent or forty percent or whatever there were a percentage of people who made the calculation that said you know I can go to work and I can make six hundred and twenty dollars at work but by working five days a week and I'm gonna be taxed on that war I can stay at home and I could make four hundred and twenty dollars and the the the calculation at least some people made was Hey I'm not getting as much money but I'd still I'd rather kind of stay home and not at work then go to work and not make that much more money and so what happened is that you found you found this pretty much across the country was for those that group of people folks who wanted to linger it wasn't until the unemployment cop ran out that then suddenly people ended up going back to work well we don't have that situation but we have something even more interesting that's developed let me share with you a piece that is in today's Wall Street journal the opinion section here here's what the headline says our restaurants can't reopen until August when I saw the headline I thought okay is this somebody is going to be complaining about the government rules that did okay the government's making close to August but then when I started to read it it was different employees this is what it says refused to return to work as long as they're getting an extra six hundred dollars a week but what this letter is talking about is that as part of the cares program people still get their regular unemployment compensation through the state on top of that everybody who is unemployed gets an extra six hundred dollars a week from the federal government all right here's the letter Portland Oregon the.

"Listening to Jeff Wagner WGM J. so very glad to have you with us all right now having said what I've said about the the idea of I think we need to start re opening the state faster than than than six weeks and how one size fits all doesn't make any sense to me at the same time if you there's a legal process to do this and I don't think individual people should be making these decisions there is the owner of a well Jackson's Blue Ribbon pub in Wauwatosa which is not the same as the Blue Ribbon pub downtown different owners he announces that he plans to open his dining room affect the of may first and he's going to practice social distancing the guy was all over the news talking about well I'm I'm going to do this and I'm going to limit the the capacity and things like that all right in and he's going to do it regardless of what the order is our number eight five five six one six one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talking text line we cannot have people taking the law into their own hands at least in in my opinion we we we can say you know I sympathize with the guy and I do the the tavern league the tavern league hit his is out publicly saying that they think that that restaurants and taverns should be able to open affect the of you know may first with different requirements all employees wearing masks and gloves practicing social distancing no tables of more than six people table six feet apart at Citrix citron with various rules I I actually I think that the tavern league particularly in large chunks of the state what the rules that they're suggesting would make sense for again a soft re opening having said that you can't allow individual businesses to decide that we don't care I don't care what the law is I'm going to go ahead and do this anyways and if he sincerely if there's not a change if the rules are relaxed and he sincerely does it well then what happens is the police have to show up in the police have to shut it down and again I I understand where this guy's coming from but you can't allow people to take the law into their their own hands and you can agitate to change the law you can sue in court to say the governor doesn't have the power to do this you can contact your legislator it cetera but I I'm not I'm not sympathetic when people say we don't care what the law is we're going to do our own thing anyways and to me it's one of those things where it sincerely may first rolls around and there hasn't been a change and somebody decides that they're going to open up their bar or restaurant regardless of what the state of the law is at that point in time you you need to shut it down don't ship eight five five six one six one six twenty that second mortgage talking text line we take a break in just a minute back with more of your calls this is Jeff Wagner W.

"Jeff Wagner good afternoon Wisconsin welcome to the show hope you had a very happy and blessed Easter it was Easter like that none of their I don't know about you might I I attended church services on Sunday but but I didn't remote fashion sitting in my den with live streaming of our services through the archdiocese it would see a kind of an interesting experience not one that you hope to be able to help cope after repeat but still it was it was something we had a really interesting weekend because even in the sphere of social distancing it was important to us to at least go in and do some play Easter bunny into some delivery said Saturday afternoon we've put together various Easter baskets for a number of the people that are close to us in our life we spent several hours driving around town dropping them off not going into people's houses not interacting with too many folks other than here talking to people from six or ten feet away but dropped off a lot of things and it it didn't replace getting together as we normally would over this weekend but it was a pretty good alternative and it just kind of been inspired us all to want to want to get through this define the light at the end of the tunnel so that we can all be a get back together with the sense of normalcy not let let me give you what I perceive at least to be some positive news here and and I understand it's it's it's tough to find silver linings and he's very very dark clouds and I understand that there's all this political tension when you open up the state when do not open up the state at what point do we kick things in the the numbers right now and maybe it's because some of the apocalyptic models that we rolled out a couple weeks ago were inaccurate maybe it's because social distancing is working and people are taking this seriously I don't know about you but the last time was a grocery store I swear I I I'd say six to seven out of ten people were were wearing masks everybody's been keeping their distance I think people are taking this seriously and at least to me it appears to be working now right now in Wisconsin the most recent numbers I have three thousand three hundred and ninety five diagnosed cases out of of Corbett nineteen look round up thirty four hundred now to put in perspective we are in a population of five point eight million so statistically that that's a real small number two point zero zero zero five percent does it minimize it but it just says that it least in Wisconsin what we've been doing and I don't know if it's again it's because we don't have people who we're we're not crammed into mass transportation we don't have that that huge number of people the population density that you do in a place like New York for example but but so far these numbers have not been increasing again with this dramatic rate that we we were afraid of me keep in mind you know that your initial projections were what we might be looking at two twenty two thousand cases of Corbett nineteen bye bye last Wednesday that is not happening in addition the other thing that we're starting to see is that the the number of cases or are leveling out and again I'm not minimizing this but I want to give you for some people who might think there's there's no hope at all of this is just going to be going on and on for months or years I mean here's the deal on Sunday in Milwaukee county and Milwaukee county has been the the one area of the state that's been hit the hardest thirty four hundred cases of of corona virus and of that seventeen hundred and forty six in Milwaukee county more than half the reported cases of coded nineteen come from Milwaukee county for for whatever reason but on Sunday the county reported twenty new cases and at least according to the information I have available the number of new cases reported Sunday and Monday those were the small list increases since March twenty second smallest increases since March twenty second now it could be a statistical anomaly it could be a political I I don't know and I understand that we're converting you know our merchants he field hospitals at state fair park in and and that's all well and good that that's fine because you want to be prepared but at this point in time if you look at the numbers what you're seeing is that stuff is starting to it least level out in the short term can you wanna you wanna play out you don't want to put too much stock in the fact that she we we had a good good day where there wasn't a a massive increase we had two good days where there wasn't a massive increase in Dane county my understanding is the whole weekend they only had one new case of coronavirus report right okay I don't know if that's part of a trend have we flatten the curve his social distancing work if added justification for continuing no continued keeping social distancing we're we're gonna discuss all backed it later on the program but it but I bring this up simply to say that what we have been doing appears to be working and and maybe if this continues to be the trend over the course of the next week or so maybe that informs the decisions and maybe we can start getting back to our lot getting back to our lives sooner rather than later so that that's the numbers a hundred and forty four deaths attributed to cove it nineteen and again the majority of those deaths in in Milwaukee county of although you do have deaths in not in the numbers that you had a walkie county but you have all across the state it's not it's not to say that there's a light at the end of the tunnel necessarily it does say though at least short term couple positive trends all right also today four o'clock they will start announcing election results now keep in mind the election was held last Tuesday federal court order has prohibited the clerks from starting to release numbers that ends at four o'clock today so presumably by later on this evening we will have an idea as to who won the state Supreme Court race and will also have an idea as to for example with Tom Barrett reelected who's the new Milwaukee county executive what about the school referendums all those things what are the elections that we really want to watch well first of all it is the statewide race for the Supreme Court seat I I'd have people been asking for the last three or four days what do you think is going to happen in my interest and I I don't know my sense is it's going to be a close election I understand that there's all sorts of people who are are looking at you know absentee ballot totals and trying to you know draw conclusions about what that means but without knowing the total turn out in different parts of the state you you really you're kind of flying blind so I can't tell you with any confidence whether I I think the challenger Jill Karofsky who is the liberal candidate you know wins or whether justice Dan Kelly the conservative candidate whether he's reelected I I I can't tell you hi I just I don't think if anybody tries to make predictions they are just guessing I think one of the things it'll be interesting to see he is hell will control by did did as well to keep in mind I understand it Bernie Sanders is dropped out so Joe Biden is going to be the democratic nominee for president but as we've been talking about repeatedly it's it's very very difficult for me to see Donald Trump getting reelected and unless he's able to Kerry Wisconsin and one of the things is going to be interesting to me is to see helping to turn out was there for Joe Biden I understand this was an election like no other but it will be interesting to kind of measure how much intensity of support is therefore bide and then try to draw some conclusions perhaps as to what that means you know moving forward in addition we're going to be looking at voter turnout and a and again I'm I'm listening to all this talk is going on hearing people throw around terms like voter suppression and all that sort of stuff it will be interesting to see when all is said and done when we count all the absentee ballots that were submitted and believe me I understand there were a couple problems with talk about that a little bit later in the show as well but when we count all the ballots and we try to compare this selection two other similar elections going to be interesting to me to see what was voter turnout really and was this an example where you have lots of people who really were denied the ability to vote or is this going to turn out to be an election where whether they did it by early voting in person or by mail voting absentee or showing up in casting votes in person you know what exactly was the turnout and how does that compare to previous elections we should know that by tomorrow as well so all those numbers start becoming public at four o'clock right let's take a quick break when we come back well there's all this conversation about whether or not president trump is ready to dump Anthony Fauci we will discuss in just a moment this is Jeff Wagner.

"Back to Jeff Wagner on WTMJ he sent out a tweet you can follow me if you're quicker six twenty and the phrase which you have got the pool boy that story you've got to be kidding me the president sure makes it tough to support him sometimes it really does present expected to commute the crooked governor from Illinois saying some people think this is unfair cool outside of the governor asset of local events outside of his wife and outside of the guys immediate family I don't think anybody thinks this was unfair all right just aggravating especially when you decide to monkey in the criminal justice process on behalf of some of your buddies it's just it it's just it is aggravating in the extreme when anybody doesn't it such as trump I mean I still remember on the way out of office Clinton decided to help pardon this fugitive financier who donated a whose wife could donate a whole bunch of money to his campaigns just absolutely outrageous all right let's get started we have talked on multiple occasions about this effort to try to change the time the taverns have to close during the Democratic National Convention right now all state law says that bars across the state have to close it two in the morning on weeknights and then Friday Saturday savvy study they can close at two thirty why does the state regulate this in the first place if Germantown wants to allow all the bars in the Germantown village of Germantown to stay open all night shouldn't they have the right to do that and my answer would be yes our number eight five five six one six one six twenty that second mortgage talking text line why is the state telling a local community but you have to close the bars at two o'clock in the morning or two thirty of course this comes up in the context of legislation which came through the assembly yesterday came to assembly committees can be voted on next week which for the ten days I think surrounding the Democratic National Convention would allow municipalities to keep bars open until four o'clock in the morning right right right he was bottled up because the tavern league wanted to attach riders to this anti that legislation into legislation which would allow people to serve liquor in wedding Barnes without getting liquor licenses that that was separated out so now it's going through is an independent bill I assume it's going to pass the assembly and Senate I assume the governor was side but I want to talk about this larger point which is moving forward if a local community to sites that you know what we want to allow but we will allow bars stay open twenty four hours no I'm not arguing that that's not that that is necessarily the the best strategy but for example if the city of Milwaukee decides we want to be Las Vegas of the east and we want to create a a bar zone you know down around the convention center in the hotels or wherever and and we want allow the bars stay open all night in this this area why shouldn't Milwaukee be allowed to do that why should the powers that be in Madison say no no no he have to close the bars it too and again I I'm not arguing necessarily that it's a good idea to leave bars open all night but if it up if in okay Wisconsin Dells for example decides he during the summer you know we we want to allow hotel bars for example to stay open all night why shouldn't they have the right to do that eight five five six one six one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talk and tax line I would argue they should local communities I think should have the right to decide bar closing times and maybe maybe they want to close the bars earlier maybe they should say you know what we we don't like this idea that they can stay open to two o'clock maybe he should say we want to make sure they close it at twelve shouldn't local communities have the right to decide when bars open and when bars close my answer would be yes eight five five six one six one six twenty second mortgage talking text line grew is lining up the calls if you're on the line please hold on me shouldn't Milwaukee be able to cite shouldn't whitefish bay be able to the site shouldn't Germantown be able to decide should in the city of Waukesha be able to decide I think the answer is yes what do you think we discuss in just a moment stick around Jeff.

"Jeff Wagner eight five five six one six one six one is that the accurate mortgage pocket and fax line right where do we go from here there's a lot of Democrats who kissed who want to move on they they recognize that they've done as much political damage to president trump is they think they they can and now it's time to move on and focus on different issues there's all others who say no that this this this is not we cannot accept this verdict we need to continue the investigations the American people can't get enough of this really right let's start with terreno con walk here your first hello how we doing yet I'm well thank you and yourself I'm doing okay okay what do you think I think I heard you mention that the Japanese attack like do a jeopardy which is jeopardy it only applies in a criminal proceeding so it doesn't apply here right and they could they could start the same impeachment proceeding again tomorrow and they'd be about what that'll be brought up at jeopardy was attached and political thing one thing in my opinion attempted extortion is impeachable and that's what prompted okay would you say tempted extortion are you are you talking about something different then they already tried him for well I mean they didn't put extortion into the articles right but that's what it was attempted extortion of the of the president of Ukraine okay so would you like to see them then go back in and try to impeach him again under a different theory I know it's a waste of time because the Republican senators a couch from you was the only one had any any courage to listen to the evidence that they weren't going to to listen because they're afraid of Donald Trump well I guess we're currently here's my thinking is Terry regardless of whether you think that Donald Trump got away with something or whether you think that this was just a witch hunt or whether you're somewhere in between the one thing that I think you and I both agree on is that continuing to go down this route on this issue especially given the fact that you have a an election it's coming up in what ten months nine months or something I I think would be a waste of time and a waste of spirit I think the people in this country have made up their mind on this and and maybe you know you you think he's guilty of extortion and maybe they proceeded on the wrong theory or or whatever I just I don't think the American people have the stomach for continuing this sort of investigation the Democrats took their shop they they they went after him they try to impeach him they failed and candidly you know on this issue the Ukraine phone call etcetera I don't care what John Bolton has to say at this point time it to the extent that it's not going to change the dynamic and the idea that okay we're going to go back to the house and we're now going to spend more time trying to pursue this even further man it talks about making my head explode and and look I I don't know right now president trump is is on a high that's just the reality his daily tracking polls are higher than they have ever been I think a lot of people are looking at what happened with the Democrats especially in Iowa you see campaigns and and arguably maybe a process of selecting a presidential candidate the right now is in disarray that could all change in a couple weeks but but the idea that we're now going to go back and continue tilting at this particular window I I Windell I think that's where you really do you know get a backlash because I think it's gonna be a lot of people that said it okay enough is enough let's move on and let's focus on first of all can we get anything accomplished in the next nine months and then who's the next president going to be is it going to be Donald Trump for four more years or is it going to be someone else let's talk to Ted Ted you're on WTMJ Chris disagree with you mark yeah I know you will I know those who think like you would like to have a smoke on but as a recovering lawyer at you and all that this was not a legitimate the proceeding because they block the weight that you you know you're gonna spend it otherwise because your Republican but you know that that they needed to bring those witnesses then and everybody wants to hear what they have to say and those who are not with the president don't think we should move on because you know the way he is not a stable genius always on the kind of poke a stick at him because of the reaction to get let's play this out south plate will play this out with me all right so you call you call John Bolton John Bolton comes in and he testified okay will look let's just work with bold Nobleton he testifies like his his the manuscript in his book supposedly said okay the trump was within the room or whatever right then do you want to restart the impeachment proceedings I don't know but I know they should have done it right this time because you can't legitimately that you know you like the claims to quit it he was acquitted because there was matching nations that that made it feel legitimate proceeding play this out with me and then what is the operative question is do I understand you're you're bitter that he he got acquitted I get it do you want to see you do what do you want to see them start the impeachment process all over again because that's the only in the near stop get possibly at some time although I know the strategy and the White House was let's kill at this time and then we'll we'll do just like you're going in our scan will be Hey why call back this will you go back to it because it wasn't done right well it was blocked by the White House well I think the what was it I mean it look it wasn't blocked by the White House Mike Mike my goodness everything is out there the the reality was Donald Trump was never going to be removed from office that that was the politics of it I happen to think that it wasn't an impeachable offense and I I'm I'm comfortable with that I do I think that was a comfortable phone call tonight I think they did everything perfectly of course not but but I guess what's interesting to me is from a political standpoint does this country want to say okay let's spend the next four months and let's go back and let's re litigate what we've just spent the last four or five months doing let's bring back the same witnesses and then let's add a couple more and then we'll we're going to have our different theories and then we're gonna go back I mean really is that where we want to spend our time over the next several months my point is people have already decided you know what they think about the the president and I think it's very clear that okay John Bolton can can come come in and testify that's that's not going to change anybody's opinion that's not going to get to sixty seven votes in the Senate to remove him from office especially as we get closer and closer to the election and if you want to talk about alienating whoever is in the middle meet you in my opinion at least I know the Democrats don't listen to me for campaign advice you go down this route say okay here's what we're going to do we're going to go back and we're going to bring in this guy in this guy and this guy that might be red meat to the hard core base who are angry and bitter or whatever word you would use over the fact that Donald Trump wasn't removed from office but I don't think it's going to appeal to mainstream follow folks who said okay we've had this thing play out for the last few months we are they're happy with the outcome or were not happy with the outcome but now let's focus on the important stuff which is you know what else can we do to make this country better over the course of the next several months and then who's going to be the next leader this is Jeff white board white here right after this attorney Tom Nichols finding an honest skilled lawyer to help guide you business interests is important it's especially important when.

"Jeff Wagner on WTMJ so very glad to have you with us okay sixty three million dollars or thereabouts is gonna be dumped into I just on television spending alone not even talking about radio and other social media sort of stuff all the candidates do it because they think that that's the way that they are going to get votes and you're going to see that play out like I say over the course of the next ten months or so around here you are undoubtedly just going to be inundated because every time you turn on the TV over the next few months there's going to be an ad for some Democrat candidate leading up to the primary in April and then after that I it tell you since Wisconsin is a battleground state you're going to be seeing a ton of political ads on the Republican side on the Democrat side it's some it's going to get I think probably to a point in this happens every contested election where it's almost tough for regular advertisers to get space because the political candidates are are grabbing it all up so the fundamental question is does it work does it make any difference and in my argument has been Candace have to do it but I think for the vast majority of candidates I don't think it sways opinion I mean let's take the presidential election may I think the truth of the matter is people are go kia I I can't imagine if you are a Donald Trump supporter I can't imagine that you're going to see an ad run by Bernie Sanders for example and all of a sudden you say hello I'm seeing the light hi I'm I'm feeling the burn I've watched this advertisement and now I'm going to go switch and I'm going to vote for Bernie over Donald Trump I don't see it happening similarly if you are a Bernie Sanders supporter you're part of that Bernie Sanders revolution you see it even if it's the best produce trump bad the world are you going to watch that are you going to say well Gee now I want to go out I I've I've seen the light I'm going to vote for president trump you know I think by and large the these ads don't move the needle especially in a race where the candidates are very very well known no maybe if it's a situation where you have an unknown who's running against a hunting company or something like that you got to run some of these ads to at least get you some name recognition start that AT breakthroughs of people at least become aware of who you are but once you're talking about a high profile of race like the president it's hard for me to see how this changes does that mean you don't run ads no it doesn't mean you don't run ads because here's the real value of my my of the ads the ads in many cases they're not done for the undecideds what they're really done is for the base of support I mean if you are a Bernie Sanders supporter and you know you're listening to the radio or you're watching TV and you don't see anything from your candidate and all you see is attack ads from the other side or whatever you're going where you get you start to get depressed you get angry where's my guy why isn't he why is he responding that does the fact he's not responding mean they think the election's over when you run ads I think they're directed as much towards the base as anyone else because you know you you get fired up Hey I'm a supporter of the present high I mean I yeah there there's the trump bad yeah they're responding they're fighting fire with fire they're not taking this lying down when the other side's running all these different campaigns political advertising a lot of times I don't believe it's necessarily designed to move undecideds especially in races where the lines are drawn as clearly as this what they're trying to do is motivate their supporters motivate their base show that there's a campaign show the campaign has a polls and encourage people to get out and vote so if you say all they're they're not going to change opinions yeah they might not change opinions but the ads aren't necessarily intended to do that they're intended to get you even more firmly entrenched and if you're a truck driver Bernie guy on Elizabeth ward Geyer Joe Biden guy or whatever get you to go out and vote for them it's twelve

"Say we do painting you do life Jeff Wagner on WTMJ we are back interesting political story there's a state senators name is Dave Hanson's a Democrat out of Green Bay Inc and he's been there for a long time he's announced that he's seventy two years old he's announced that he he's retiring is not running for reelection which what's this seat very much in play it it's a it's a seat that probably is a Republican leaning seat I would say but Dave Hanson is we've been there for a long time he's getting a royal and he's you know he's been reelected he's a known commodity now that is an open seat I think it's it's probably a toss up or maybe it's a likely leans Republican seat in this district so interestingly enough Democrats scrambling to see who they're going to come up with and so apparently one of the guys that's moving forward is Jonathan Hansen who as it turns out is the nephew of David Hanson so you know you have one of these the legacy things that that's going on the guys alderman from alderman from the pier and he's the father decided that he wants to follow in his uncle's footsteps which is all well and good but I I do always think back to some of the issues member we had these concerns when there was a discussion about whether or not Scott Walker's children one of his kids Matt was gonna run for for Congress and there was all this hand wringing in there was all this concern about all my gosh is this going to be is this this legacy you know we we have multiple generations of of politicians you know trying to run and then the same argument was out there when mark Newman son I believe that was mad as well he was thinking about running for Congress and ultimately decided not to you heard all this the whole we think this is bad for you know that the kids of the existing politicians to run well okay if that's the case is there going to be out rage when Dave Hanson's nephew decides to run war has decided to run we'll see it's twelve thirty let's go to the WTMJ breaking news center here is Melissa mark thank you Jeff some supporters of president trump lined up downtown starting last night to make sure they would have a spot inside the UW Milwaukee Panthers arena that's where he's hosting a rally tonight the president making his first twenty twenty appearance in the state he's also counter programming the box game which starts at seven o'clock tonight also downtown at Pfizer form and the accredit presidential hopefuls debate that is in neighboring Iowa tonight I keep it to WTMJ for updates from downtown starting at three o'clock this afternoon on Wisconsin's afternoon news and meanwhile the house is expected to vote tomorrow to send the articles of impeachment against president trump to the Senate speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi met privately today at the capital with her democratic caucus to discuss the time table airline says it's taking the Boeing seven thirty seven Max out of its schedule for two more months until early June and that means American it will cancel nearly twenty thousand flights in its first five plus months of.

"Call here's WTMJ is Jeff Wagner four one four seven nine nine one six twenty Jeff the text to me they are essentially the same as legal immigrants I will talk about the dreamers seven eight hundred thousand people in regards the contributions to the U. S. and self sufficiency to deport them from the only homeland they have known seems like a losing proposition again I I understand the legal issue that the legal issue is the present Congress would not in act this is a law president Obama did this is an executive order and some people don't think you have the authority to do it but that aside if Obama created this program is an executive order shouldn't trump have the right to rescind the executive order and and commit candidly I find that to be a pretty compelling legal argument but that's that's the legal argument that's not saying you know what what should we do with seven or eight hundred thousand people who came into this country as young people brought in by their parents illegally but they they were money were young people and they've gone through high school they are now living here they're not creating problems are these the people that we want to spend time deporting Vincent on the northwest side visit your first hello good afternoon yeah hi first of all if if the Supreme Court not doctor down or or or the says that the president has the right to do that the fact is we're not going to we are going to deport that many people it's just not gonna happen well you wouldn't think we would support that many of those type of people I know that you know me I if I were prioritizing I got to tell you that the people that have registered under this circumstance they would they would be the last number of people that I would want to deport that there's got to be a lot more people are in this country illegally that are creating problems than the dreamers they are reporting part of this economy the fact is that doctors lawyers police officers the fact is that that the fact is we had better is it exactly that would be basically automatically a look that is illegal the fact is you have them document the fact these individual documents prepared taxes it is and that sort and now you're going to put this to you got basically put people there allow them to say where they're going to go underground that's exactly what's going to happen and use it and it and the fact that this country is not in the mood to sit around and go up to the fact is the gang of eight plan I think this is the path is as far as immigration the concert helping government about what they did when they did this but the fact is we hear I think it should stand there because we do it in a class the class if they go out at the that do that yeah I can I can and and that's the and that's that the policy of this and get I I appreciate that the legal argument putting on my you know recovering lawyer hat I I understand the argument the argument is president Obama didn't have the authority to do this after Congress said no you shouldn't be able to do this by executive order I am sympathetic to that I I I am and it also seems to me that if you created by executive order you should go get rid of it by executive order but that's not to say whether the policy is good or bad Jeff I agree with you prioritize resources by removing the criminal elements then focus on obtaining legal citizenship the right way Jeff I would let them stay another text also with the caveat that they can demonstrate that they also have health insurance but the same time I would also putting a stop to let them attend public school get drivers licenses set for now keep in mind most of these people registers the dreamers they're they're out of there they're out of school I mean this is there they they've been here for a period of time they're out of school they're serving in a productive capacity and again I also appreciate the fact that you know we we don't want this to look like a amnesty I mean kill president trump from what I understand was was ready to just sign off on this and then a number of advisers said well okay you have to understand this is going to alienate your base people going to consider this to be amnesty and and so they he decided to go the other way I I just I I appreciate we have a problem with the border we have a problem with illegal immigration the the seven hundred thousand people though aren't the ones that I am particularly concerned with four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that's accurate mortgage talk and text line Jeff so to me they are simply the same as legal immigrants in regards to the contributions to the U. S. and self sufficiency to deport them from the only homeland they have known seems to me like a losing proposition I guess I would say that as well take off the recovering lawyer had tried to put on a good public policy hat and and you get a different result a like I say who knows with the supreme court's going to do this this might be a victory for the trump administration saying a legally you can do it but even if that's the case I hope somebody reconsiders whether this is where we want to spend our resources to say and.

"Twentyone jeff wagner wtmj four more states head to the polls for midterm elections will indications of a blue wave continued gene villa has a full recap six twenty one tomorrow on wisconsin's morning news actually the the more with all due respect to jian the more interesting question about the midterms is that the these elections there's primary elections and donald trump president trump is playing in a couple of these primary elections because a couple of the people running are republicans who like roy moore in alabama have no chance to win they're they're kooks or they've got other baggage that just makes the unelectable and trump has learned his lesson recognizing that you know republicans if if he wants to be able to get nominees through over the next couple years and maybe avoid impeachment you know he he needs to have republicans maintained control of the house and especially of the senate and so what he's look a couple of these races like in west virginia there's one of the candidates who's running is a former peabody coal company executive who did time for criminal involvement in a mine collapse and and this guy may very well win the republican primaries three other more mainstream candidates that are running if he does just like roy moore republicans will not pick up that seat in west virginia so i think president trump is now starting to realize that you've got to find candidates who have the ability to win and he's urging his supporters to vote for one of those candidates who can win it's going to be interesting to see if that in fact happens and we'll know that answer by tomorrow.

"Twelve twenty eight jeff wagner wtmj all right the question is how long will some other members of the trump cabinet last the reports are that president trump has decided to remove hr mcmaster is national security advisor apparently the long knives are out and just like when you're talking about firing at baseball manager and the owner comes and gives him a vote of confidence that's normally the kiss of death same thing happens here apparently in the reports are that the trump administration the president's decided to fire his national security adviser and they're saying well no no we don't think that's going to happen and we have confidence in him which probably means he might not last the day but this of course is going to be the latest example somebody in the trump administration who has been unable to work with the president and this is big story number one this i think is a big deal not because i care about hr master but the bottom line is running it's one thing to run i don't know a closely held family company where you can can get rid of people right and left you know willy nilly that's one thing it's another thing to have this kind of chaos when it comes to running the country now i don't know if this was a function of president trump not being prepared to take office and making bad hiring decisions in the first place but the fact that you're seeing people that are constantly being fired or leaving tells me that there's either number one problem with the guy who can't work with him or alternatively bad decision making and hiring people in the first place and i think from the perspective of the country the sooner the revolving door ends the better but don't be surprised if hr master the national secure adviser don't be surprised if he's gone soon when we come back in just a couple minutes it now appears that most of the free world believes that russia is starting to kill people who.
