"Into filibuster and call a bill like that for a vote, because if the 60 vote requirement is maintained, and you've had some Democrats like Joe Manchin come out and say, Hey, I'm not gonna vote to remove it will see whether that holds up or not, But if they suspend that 60 vote requirement, then I have real concerns about Congress weighing in on, but things are voted strictly along party lines. Again. We're gonna look at some of those Mork conservative Democrats specifically like Joe Manchin and hope that he would tow the line and we wouldn't get things to Congress. But with that very slim Democrat majority, with Carmela breaking the tie in the in the Senate, That's where our concerns really loved, hammering Nigel The 93 w why D C weekend mashup. This is kind of a bummer Fries Electron IX has announced. They're going out.
Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it

Elena, former President, Harvard I can't. Yeah s o. We're gonna pare that down to a normal number. In anything resembling a world of sanity. The answer would be yes. Unfortunately, we're in a world where the Democrats have control of both houses. The chances of the house doing that, I think are zero. I think Pelosi Will crack the whip, but everyone will fall in line and the Senate We're 50 50. And so this, like so many other things for the next two years comes down to Joe Manchin. Listen, I third with Joe for eight years, and he's a very nice guy. He's affable. Everyone likes Joe. It's It's hard not to like Joe. Um His history in the Senate is that his rhetoric is quite moderate. And yet, in the time I've served in the Senate, I cannot think of a single time he had stood up to Chuck Schumer. On any issue of consequence when it made a difference. In other words, the sort of joke among Republicans is that mansion will sometimes vote with us when it's not the deciding vote. But At least if past is prologue he hasn't done. So when it is the deciding vote. I hope that changes I would love to see Joe Rest back on on humor, and Pelosi and Biden but The I don't know. Sumer has some screws or a medieval rack in his office. But At least in the past, Democratic senators have been unwilling to cross Schumer and they enforce strict party discipline. The Republicans Look, I'm gonna vote no on this monstrosity, but if they hold their 50 Democrats and Kamila Harris, they will get it through and point out there. Also abusing the parliamentary rules and trying to land through Entirely different formations that had nothing to do with Kobe. A whole lot of this bill has zero to do with come in. This is all about paying off. Left wing special interest. This is about paying off teachers, union bosses. This is about paying off their bodies and blue states that have dug themselves a debt hole.

Let's deal with the rest later. Sometimes you know what You can just do. This is what's the best thing for our country. This moment in time, Let's fight about the rest and a little bit. If this is truly about the people, and not about special interests, not about unions, not about certain states that are in some serious trouble because their tax base is leaving and they've been closed for so long.

Industries that have been really throttled if you do enough. Help out there, but most importantly, get the money that you need to get into people's hands. If you need to know you're what you're probably going to do anyway. So you could probably ask for more anyways. But here right now. What I see happening is You're asking for everything. You know you're not gonna get everything. And then you're gonna come back and ask for more. You could always ask for more later. But you know what you can't do. Can't take it back. Do you call people? Hey, can you give me the money thing? Because you're back. No, it's not gonna happen. About doing the smart thing, and the smartest thing of all is getting us through this damn pandemic. The smartest thing of all is is having a true plan to exit. I see a plan to continue to monitor to continue to to let out a little bit and then maybe pull back and to let out on the pull back. I don't see a plan of we're going to be out of this based on here.

Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation.

And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task.

It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs.

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?
"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since

Biden's minimum wage hike proposal: Job killer or boon for workers?
"This'll is America changed forever from the CBS Audio Network. I'm Gil Gross. When President Biden came out with his covert recovery stimulus bill, there were two main points of controversy. The first was the size of it with Republicans wanted to cut in the half. The second and seemingly a main sticking point because it also concerned an important swing vote. Democrat and Senator Joe Manchin was a gradual hike in the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Received wisdom echoed by the Congressional Budget Office has been that though it will help many Americans would also cost more people their jobs. But is that true reports and politicians and policy institutes we usually colored by a specific viewpoint, going in, which is made the work of Aaron Dubay. Something unique in the field because it's been based mainly on research done at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where he's become the world's leading authority on how a minimum weight will affect the economy, So let me start by thanking you for being here. It's great to be here, and I should start out by saying, Like many of us, you did work for minimum wage. In your case. A McDonald's, um That give you any special feeling for this or just just another memory from your youth? You know, it's a few couple interesting things, you know, Of course, back then. This was late 90 late eighties early nineties, it was actually more common for people in high school or early college to work in minimum wage jobs. It's become less common these days. In fact, Nowadays, a lot more workers who are at minimum wage jobs are older and they're going to be there for longer period. Having said that, yes to working at a minimum wage job alongside people who were older who were trying to support families did give me some perspective. So let's let's take a look at that Congressional Budget Office report That's been much discussed in the last week because it says it will raise 900,000 people out of poverty. That sounds great, but it says it will do that at the cost of 1.4 million jobs. I know you think that's not right. What's wrong with that? Yeah, So let me just begin by saying sometimes top line numbers can sound scary and big or small, but it's really useful to keep things in perspective. So, according to the CBO, You're going to see wage increases that are far larger than any job losses, So that's an important thing to keep in mind so overall If you take the CBO's estimates seriously, it suggests that working people as a whole are substantially better off than with the higher minimum wage that not Having said that I do think that the CBO's estimates are more pessimistic. And here's the reason why I actually was asked by the government in UK, the conservative government UK about a little over a year and half ago to look exactly at this question, and I provided a report for their Treasury that helped them come to a determination on where to set their minimum wage and looked at the evidence. And I found that when looking at the evidence from US UK, other developed countries. Overall, the body of research suggests a fairly muted effect of minimum wages and jobs. While significantly increasing earnings of the local at the bottom. So I think the CBO's report ends up drawing a more pessimistic conclusion because it ends up not looking at some of the more recent literature. It also ends up. Paying more attention to a few very large Estimates of job losses. One, for example, from a study about Seattle minimum wage that subsequently has been shown to be quite problematic. In fact, the same researchers have More updated study that suggests 1/10 of the size of job loss as original. Report, but that more recent estimate is not in the CBO report. While the original one is for these reasons, I think the CBO report ends up getting the job lost number of fairly substantially. Too high. Having said that, I think it's important to keep in mind. Nonetheless, the report can be interpreted as he's saying that this is overall a good

I can't tell you where the right numbers or but when you have a good bipartisan input you can discuss and debate That's when you get a good program and we're committed and we are committed and

"You said that. Joe manchin wants to find a bipartisan solution. What exactly does that mean. In this congress that is unclear. And that's the key question to look out for this point because there is no bipartisan plan. On the table that at least unless at least unless at least limbs down president biden's one point nine trillion proposal there is now ten senate republicans talking about something in the range of six hundred billion. But there's no fully fleshed out bill yet and it's not even clear that those ten will ultimately vote for that. So what mansion is saying is that he prefers that a bill. Bipartisan and he wants to start off by working by the two sides working together but the question then becomes if democrats do move to reconciliation as it appears they are. Is he going to vote. No on that. There's no indication there's no reason to believe he's gonna stop or or he's going to vote no on that. I've asked this question. Many times other reporters on capitol hill have asked him this question. He simply says. Now's the time to be working in a bipartisan manner. But he won't rule out reconciliation and crucially. He said he wants. Joe biden successful president. That is the single biggest difference between him and any other republican that he's invested in making joe biden successful which means he's more likely than not to support signature elements of biden's agenda. Even if there are parts of it that he ends up disagreeing with so jack professor up. Hang on here for one more. Second i'm going to turn back to you in a moment. The style i do actually kind of nuts and bolts question for you because we keep saying you know. Joe manchin center of the senate right now In terms of power and influence but specifically what rule might or will mansion play in ongoing or future negotiations over a covert plan specifically. He'll try to shape it. Okay offer his us you know. On capitol hill. He speaks to reporters all the time in the hallway myself included. He'll talk to his local west virginia news reporters and offer his perspectives and opinions there. So he'll be vocal about where he is what he wants. And what he doesn't want and senator chuck schumer. the democratic. Majority leader is certainly attuned. To what joe manchin wants because this is a vote that he cannot spare in any path to fifty boats whether it's reconciliation and bypassing a filibuster and certainly sixty votes. It's hard to imagine a bipartisan deal. That comes together without the support of so jack beatty. You want to respond to it. So he'll say well yes but you know he's he's going to make a big vote pretty soon. It sounds like he's gonna vote to convict the man who won his state by forty one points and joe in his last race by here. He only wanted by three points. So that's that's that's pretty bold. Move and on brand maybe Showing that there's a democratic side to him to and his comments about trump piece here saying how seventy two million people could still walk in and vote for him. I just can't figure it out. Well maybe his neighbors down there can explain it to him but he he's he's straddling and it seems to me on even hot issues like this impeachment. He showed a little courage from robert rep. What do you think yes not only. Is he good a politician but as pointed out he's capable of taking bold actions. But i think the really key is by his own personality. He wants to be in the negotiation. I think he's really enjoying the center to. That'd be the center of attention. But i think he'll. He'll continue Being a force in west. Virginia politics and now he's least temporarily is going to be a forest in congressional politics. Professor of the. I m curious. I mean we've been talking up senator mansion through this whole hour. There's got to be a risk for him as well. A potential downside. I mean the backdrop here is the ruby red state of of west virginia. I mean what. What are the risks for him right now in how he handles. His role in president biden's ambitious legislative agenda. Well i i. I think he. He'll handle it well because besides a personality besides political talent He has at heart. What is best for the state. Sahil kapur same question to you if you can you. Can you get a sense of what the risks are for mansion or are there none. There certainly are risks. And i think as we've discussed on this show mansion is not a stranger taking some aggressive position. Some risky positions Keep in mind. He voted with the democrats against the republican efforts to repeal the aca. Without him there would have been that fiftieth vote in the senate to pass that it would be a massively different healthcare system than today voted against the republican tax law of twenty seventeen He did vote last time. Around to convict president trump and by all indications he seems to be leaning that way again this time so he does generally end up with democrats. That's the reason. He is a democrat but having said that again the risks are if he's seen as a undercutting his independence brand The one that has gotten him this far and that's allowed him to survive in this political climate. That is so hostile to democrats in west virginia. If he's seen as just another typical democrat that would be a problem for. That's the single biggest risk and he has the retail politics through pressing his opinions through the way he deals with voters and a press in his state. He knows his way around it. Well he'll kapoor is national political reporter for nbc news with us today from washington. He'll thank you so very much greater. Join you and robert rob professor political science and history at west virginia wesleyan college and author of the primary that made a president kennedy and the nineteen sixty battleground in west virginia professor. It's been great to have you. Thank you take care and jack beatty on point news analyst. Always great to have you as well jack. And by the way on the wall of senator mansions officers a picture of john f. kennedy in quote let us not seek the republican answer or the democratic answer but the right answer talk This is on point..
"joe manchin" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"We want to help everybody that needs help. But if a person's making two hundred and fifty or three hundred thousand dollars. I don't think they're much as neat as a person making forty or fifty. That's been okay. That's all i've said. So robert rob. I wanted to ask you to just reflect on this with me. Because senator mentioned there correctly insisting he's only been explicit about his concerns regarding those stimulus checks and the bind proposal wants to send them to all americans but he's a smart guy. I mean he knows that it's not just those stimulus checks that the repub the republicans wanna push for compromise quote unquote compromise on. I mean we have this new gio. Be excuse me. Gop alternative plan. That's what less than a third of what biden has Has proposed and critically scales back on employment benefits which i imagine might have an impact on a lot of west virginia's virginians and it doesn't include state and local government aid as well so it's more than just the stimulus checks. I mean how. How do you read how joe manchin might handle these other pressures to compromise that. He's facing right now. Well i think the key is not just as background in his personality but also is focus and has focused as west. Virginia if you if you really wanna start understanding him in that case it's why why give it rich people. Poor people need it more. I think that's just part of it though. But but i was not surprised that he said that. But i'll tell you also. His personality is one to compromise and barter in change. And i don't think it's it it you know i. I think we will not see him. As as you pointed out as this obstructionist that isn't really helping the nation. I think he might come around. At least that's my prediction Well jackets one here. You quickly on this. And then we're gonna hear voice from capitol hill. But what do you think about the bigger pressure sort of across the board. The pushback that The gop is putting on the biden plan. And what impact that might have on. How mansion tries to navigate through it. Well i think it's it's significant that he goes right to the weakest part of that Biden plan we've talked about it on this program. Economists have said you know people check to people earning over seventy five thousand dollars and they put it in the bank and that's got no bounce effect in the economy. So i think he's on firm ground there and it sounds like the president is willing to give on that. But you know we've been talking about. Joe is if he you know sort of visit man in the middle and doesn't take chances. He took one of the biggest chances of any senator in recent decades. I think when after the sandy hook massacre he went out and sponsored a cosponsored. A gun control. Bill didn't get a vote because of the grip of the gun lobby on the gop but it was darned brave. And i'm sure he suffered from it in a gun owning state Did he suffer from that professor up. No i as i said Joe has joe's the best retail politician in west. Virginia has seen since arch more in one thousand nine hundred seventy so again. It said that personal face to face value in west. Virginia that that explains his continued success and will explain his future success We're getting a lot of comments online from listeners. Derek will not says this is sad mansion hides behind democratic party mantle. But really acts like a republican. Julie hall says my great grandfather was a coal miner. In shannon doa pennsylvania in the eighteen ninety s great grandfather. Julia says since then. We've walked on the moon and cured polio. Can't we find a better alternative to mining coal. Well let's turn now to washington style. Kapoor joins us. He's national political reporter for nbc news cycle. It's good to have you back with us. Okay we're going to try and get him back on the line because we do want to know exactly what's happening in washington and there's quite a bit going on today so Robert rep. Let me let me turn back to you. i'd like to hear a little bit more About how how do you see. Joe manchin his political longevity. I don't necessarily think is in question. given what you said about his his excellence in retail politics but how what do you think about his longevity as a democrat in west. Virginia republicans have long time ago. I think probably more than ten years ago. The couldn't have been nourishing this view that that that Because he is centrist. Because he's conservative. They can win them over and he was raised as a new deal democrat in a very democratic family and juice. I think james conner the grave if he changed so despite the republican wishes. I think joe will stay as democrat. It will be interesting to see that new deal democrat part of him. It'll be interesting to see exactly how much he embraces that with. This cove relief plan. I mean focusing on the stimulus. Checks is one thing but maybe the rubber really meets the road if he if the gop pushes on those other parts of their compromise bill. So let's turn back now. Steve we have sahil kapur from washington you with a style yes magnet. Can you hear me. I can now. It's great to have you so so give us a read on what's been going on with senator mentioned over the past day or two over the weekend and regarding his what. He's been saying what he's been thinking about the biden plan. Yeah well. Senator mentioned has an expressing his preferences as to what should happen with the kobe. Relief proposal and specifically he's been saying above all that he wanted to be bipartisan. He wants the two parties to work together. He's also been saying as you pointed out that the stimulus payments which have been a focal point of this effort should be more targeted toward those who need him. The thing about joe mentioned that. I think people are missing when he talks about this. He's talking about his personal preferences and he likes to be able to offer different opinions than the rest of his party. For reasons. i'll get into in a moment but he's not drawing red lines here. That's a key thing that people are missing about him. He's not saying. I'm going to refuse to vote for this bill. If it doesn't if it does have higher stimulus checks. And i think that's kind of where That's that's what matters with joe mansion at the end of the day he's trying to shape but he typically does vote with democrats on these big economic plans on the fact that democrats even have this seat in west virginia as kind of a miracle for the party given that west. Virginia is the trumpy state in the entire country. If you look at election margins the president of the former president won that state by forty points in about in about forty points in both of his elections and without joe mention there is no democratic senate. Majority there's no trifecta so the reality is democrats need joe mansion and the white house needs joe mansion more than joe mentioned. Needs them right. I mean we've got some aides on the hill being quoted in politico as the joe manchin controls everything right now but tell us a little bit more than about why you're saying it's important for for senator mansion to be able to express his personal opinions which which might go against The direction that say the biden administration wants to hear him talk even if he might still end of voting with them. Tell me more about why. That's important quite simply. The democratic party brand is cat food in west. Virginia it's a very very bad party brand and that's why they've been losing elections by such massive margins. Joe mentioned is kind of a unicorn where he's surviving politically on his own personal brand as an independent voice who was willing to break with his party and he is outspoken about areas where he disagrees such as you know these stimulus payments for instance such as his voting for neal gorsuch and brett cavenaugh president trump's first two nominees to the supreme court and including his opposition to much of where the democratic party is on issues of energy and climate change namely. Because as you've discussed on the show bus. Virginia's a cold state so in order to maintain that personal brand of his that is critical to his political survival and his political identity. It means disagreeing with democrats from time to time so.

So i want to spend the rest of the show. Really focusing on where mentioned finds himself now and the most immediate question of course as we've discussed begun to discuss. Is that kobe relief. Plan that president biden has put out. So let's listen to a little bit To what senator mansion has recently said about his View of stimulus checks for all americans. People need to know. We want to help everybody that needs help. But if a person's making two hundred and fifty or three hundred thousand dollars. I don't think they're much as neat as a person making forty or fifty. That's been.

"Well i'm curious. What was it about the new deal that that So appeal to west virginians that made them so loyal so long even against these national trends toward rural areas going republican. Fdr gave not only attention but support. Remember they were really suffering and second of all. What did i give him unions. That was the beginning of the coal union movement. So that was the two things that fdr delivered to west virginia and so but so that then that That a support of fdr and roosevelt and approaches to government actually persisted through. What the nineties. You're saying yet it wasn't until two thousand that you actually had this trend in alabama. It just took like four years to transform in west. Virginia took like twenty. It was slow. Started with bush winning in two thousand and and mainly shifted the election and then over the next twenty years you had republicans appear in the congressional delegation that we used to be totally democrat and it was just this and now they've taken over the legislature in in in eight years ago so again as i said he. It's really a now a one party state. So the question is how can joe survive and he does so i want to talk specifically about senator manchin of course in in a few more minutes but but what was different or what. What was that first domino in two thousand that then began this change that you're talking about professor rep well. It became a whole set of of conservative issues. I remember gore desperately trying to say he commercial had him saying he was pro gun and that wasn't being bought and the other one too is you have to realize that that Trump may not have delivered very much to west. Virginia but his promise was i will keep coal in hillary clinton was seen as an anti co person in although the coal industry been dropping. It's very important. In fact you know what's on our state flag besides a farmer a coal miner so the cultural importance of the coal industry is something that we're gonna want to explore a bit later in the show professor robert rub and jack beatty by this hour. We're trying to understand. Senator joe manchin and understand how.

Also in Washington DC with the with Mitch McConnell and anything that the Senate goes through is gonna just die on the vine in the in the house. That's just how it's going to be because there's not. A. There's not a a a way for them to. I I don't think that there are enough Joe mansions like folks in the house. Joe Manchin is like one of the last moderate Democrats. He's a Senator I don't think there's anybody that's kind of his particular mind to and the houses what maybe six or seven or so that are gonna cross the line and and do that. So we'll see. But that we'll keep an eye on these these dueling bills that are currently. Taking over the house in the Senate. So. Oh, goodness. Coming up. We have a project child safe spill Romanelli, we're going to talk with him a little bit. Oh, did you guys know that the media finally talked to the black Israelites are screaming at those kids the guy who started it does you? So just if you're not familiar with the black Hebrew Israelites. They're crazy. That. Kind of like a right of passage to be screamed at and called a cracker by them any time that you've ever been to DC anytime, there's a rally or protest or anything they're there. And there's there's always a few of their their in these scream at you. And that's how they protest I guess for lack of a better way to put it anyway. So.

I can't say that word, right? The f word for gay people the slur while I was quoting him. He said there are a bunch of those things made out of incest. How're you made out have been like you. You're your product of it or it's a thing like a fabric like what? I felt I don't know. What is it? Anyway. He said that he's quit while he's crazy. Like, they talked to this guy. And he is nuts. He's like I was teaching them a lesson. I about incest babies like, what is he goes? They started doing their chance. So I was cutting into this is his quote, he goes, I call them dogs. They sounded like dogs. What? What I don't. I don't know. He goes we were teaching. That's what he said. Yeah. But don't you. Remember your class about incest babies?

And then you have this this baby fae seventeen year old kid. Which is. Yeah. I don't all of this is just so completely blown out of proportion. It's all ridiculous. But I loved that. They finally talked to that guy. And you know, what there's only one media outlet the talk to him. It's like once they realized how crazy he was there like oh, hell, no. No, no, no, no, nobody talk to him anymore. He was the guy that started it all. So why are people why don't they docs them is it because? Oh, well, that's expected. It's expected for them to be crazy. What I mean? That's how they act essentially. I mean, that's exactly that's how they act we told you last. We told you last hour about how records came out showing that Nathan Phillips was a while three times. He was not honorably discharged. He was discharged as he didn't. He didn't upgrade in rank from private. He just discharges a private. And he made up a position he said he was a recon ranger in the marines and our refrain retired marine veteran Joe at Johnny Joey Jones says the I think he's completing and stuff that's not. And I like unless he was like some big time spook because he said talking about he goes, you know, they were pulled marines out. He said seventy two seventy six that's not even. Yes. So he didn't have to be more than the marines records show that he wasn't even he didn't even leave the United States. Go Sal recon ranger gosh is that an even real position anywhere as a civilian. I don't know gogo recon ranger. That's a new thing now. So he talked with. When he talked with savannah Guthrie today. Do we have this? Because this is what I mean, why why the hell are you still angry? He got mad because he says that Nick Sandman had a PR firm. Help him with his response. Yeah. Because grown adult called him an incest, baby. And you got his face and beat a drum and your friends said you need to go back to Europe. You're you're white. You pale person you need to go back to Europe. So she was trying to ask him about the controversy over his his military service. And he goes, well, what I've always said as I never step foot in South Vietnam. No, that's not. I don't want to ask you to came to play his statement again where he. Yeah. I I think I still have that. But listen to how she starts this interview as opposed to how she started the kids interview. What's what's the kid's name? I forget, but listen to how loud this is handled by savannah Guthrie, the front page of every newspaper how you doing? And how are you feeling? I woke up strong this morning. With a positive attitude. I had opportunity to go to a traditional prayer ceremony. That was the other night. Yesterday. I woke up with all kinds of good feelings in Mahar. For all those who've been been mean to me. Oh my gosh. Can we stop right.

"Jersey Bob Menendez was able to retain his Senate seat over Bob Hubin despite the federal indictment against him. And one more projection we wanna make it's going to be in the West Virginia Senate race Joe mansion able to retain his seat. That's based on our analysis of the vote ABC's. Karen Travers, his here that is a big hold for the Democrats in West Virginia. Yeah. This is. This is a race that President Trump and the Republicans would love to have picked off Joe. Manchin was an incredible target for them. And he was able to hold on. This was a race that was leaning in his favor, despite the fact that President Trump won that state by more than forty points. So you think it's a big uphill climb for. Joe Manchin, but he is a popular moderate some in Washington, Democrats would say perhaps leaning Republican democrat former governor he voted for now, the president's supreme court nominee, and and I know we keep mentioning that in some of these Senate races. But that was a big issue that was firing up voters in the final weeks of this campaign. And it wasn't expected to be such a big issue. But it did play a factor in some of these races. Certainly did because the president campaigned on it and made it a big issue and was trying to use it against Joe Manchin. But state that the president won by forty plus points, still has a democratic Senator. But certainly some of his democratic colleagues don't like the fact that he does vote inside sometimes with the Republicans one of his democratic colleagues is Heidi Heitkamp. Can she retained her seat tonight? In North Dakota ABC's David Wright is in the state. It's been a tough race for her David. It has been a tough race Aaron, and you were just talking there about that vote on the bread Kavanagh nomination. That may well be a factor here in North Dakota. Among the people who say it was a factor for them two out of three were turned off by the fact that Heidi Heitkamp voted her conscience despite this being a state that went for Donald Trump by thirty six points back in two thousand sixteen despite the popularity of Kavanagh's nomination and the idea of him coming onto the court. She voted against that nomination. And not only that.

"Approve this message. All right, there you go. Twenty five now til the top of the hour only twelve days until the important midterm elections. You know, it had been and even I have fallen into this even though I tell you don't fall into this. I had been reading the polls. And I kept seeing mansion is up by ten. I don't see the seat in play. And obviously an election year conversion he votes for cavenaugh, which was a good vote with the right thing to do. But with that said now, it is a two point Reyes to polls. I've looked at one with mansion up and the other with opponent the attorney general of West Virginia Patrick Morrissey up and that means that West Virginia is now in play. That means that Joe Manchin can be replaced. Joining us now is the attorney general from the great state of West Virginia. Patrick Morrissey, sir. Congratulations that seems to be a very big comeback. Early polls. Didn't look good in the beginning. But I guess maybe we're getting more accurate polling as we get closer to election day. Well, Sean, thanks so much for having me on. And I think what you're seeing in West Virginia is that voters are really focusing on the differences between the candidates as you can see from my ads. I'm a conservative fighter will help advance the Trump jobs agenda and mansions are dishonest Washington liberal, the more and more people drill down on mansions record. He's starting to lose support. So we feel very good and we're gonna win on election day. We just have to keep out working on the way, we have you know, I was really worried during the Obama years about our friends in West Virginia because of the the burdensome regulation, driving coal miners out of business. You know, it's one of our best resources, and we have clean coal. And we have you know, people brave enough to go in the minds. I have great admiration for anybody. That does that. Because frankly, you know, you go so deep into the ground, and it's. Dangerous work, but but energy is the lifeblood of our economy and once Donald Trump got elected, which by the way would have never happened. If Joe Manchin his way because he supported Hillary Clinton, you know, look at what happened to the state of West Virginia, all those coal mining jobs are coming back. Thank god. Well, thank goodness for President Trump, and I have to tell you I spent a lot of the last six years suing the Obama administration. Sean, we were the office that took the lead nationally to go against the Obama power plant one that very big victory at the US supreme court, and you look at your mansion Joe Manchin supported Hillary Clinton, even after she said, we're gonna put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of work. So on the issue of coal on the issue of life on the issue of the second amendment. There couldn't be a bigger contrast in America between two candidates and the more people were hearing about that the better off we are. And I basically help serve as a bridge to President Trump's really strong policies that west Virginians really appreciate it. So that's one of the persons come in very strongly behind me. He knows I'm going to be a staunch advocate for his agenda because it's good for West Virginia. You would know better than I probably should have. Looked up before having you on today. I meant to actually at one point what percentage of the time does Joe Manchin boat with Chuck Schumer and the Democratic Party. Well, he votes with him when account so you know, I don't like to count naming post offices and procedural votes. Well, let's talk about the votes where he Donald Trump really could've used his vote healthcare being one. Well, that's right. So Joe Manchin said no to getting rid of ObamaCare and having really high quality affordable health your options in the mountain state. Sean in West Virginia premiums have risen over one hundred sixty percent in four years and mansion said no to fixing getting rid of ObamaCare. And I think that west Virginians didn't like that. They also didn't like the fact that Joe Manchin said no to the Trump tax cuts really giving a big lift to our state providing economic opportunity better jobs. Joe Manchin had to side with Chuck Schumer the leadership on every issue. Would it matters mansion says no and even on Cavanaugh where people say, oh, we ended up voting for cavenaugh reality is he waited he actually left the Senate a voting chamber and. Wait until Susan Collins cast a vote, and then and only then to Joe Manchin step out because he knew if he didn't do that. He was politically dead his toes. So, you know, I kind of use a lot of those votes is, you know, election conversion year votes. And that's the point he didn't vote for the tax cuts. And you know, maybe he's not as extreme as as everyone else in his party. But the reality is is that he's going to vote for Chuck Schumer to be the majority leader. And I don't think Chuck Schumer can get ten votes in West Virginia, which makes mansion out of touch with the people of West Virginia. Important issues like tax cuts regulation energy, those three main fundamental issues that that affect and impact the economy in West Virginia. Also, I know West Virginia like a lot of places has struggled with opioid issues. And we saw with the president did yesterday and what he's been doing since he became president. Well, that's one of the big issues in this race. Joe Manchin, I vote will be for Chuck Schumer. Chuck Schumer's made no bones about the fact that he's gonna head out the obstruction resistance impeachment caucus, and if you're part of that Schumer leadership team, and Joe Manchin is and you're powering these liberals, the hopes that really created all the ruckus during the cavenaugh urines, then you're part of the problem. So that's why people are so focused on Joe mansions, I vote because you know, he's not to be with West Virginia. And he's going to be part of a team. That's tearing down the president west Virginians don't want that. And that's why we're gaining so much momentum in our campaign. How much money is the Democratic Party putting into West Virginia to try and keep in other words, how much has humoring company in Pelosi and company are they investing in these negative ads about you? Well, they've put a fortunate, and I think by by all accounts, they're gonna probably be up over twenty four twenty five million dollars. Now, this is West Virginia. This is not New York, California or Florida, they'll probably end up spending about eight million more. We're going to look at the final count. And that's what happens on you mentioned earlier. You know, if you get pounded for months on end, then you can't respond it makes it difficult. But now the president came back twice. He's actually our side. We think there's gonna come back again. And we start to come back twelve to ten to eight for six two four two two two even and that's because President Trump has made a top priority. When early voting beginning West Virginia as it starts. Early. Yeah. Really voting started yesterday. And so we're starting to look at the numbers. One thing we see is that the Republicans have a lot of energy, and people know that the future the Senate could really be at stake with this election, and that there's a clear choice. So we're feeling good about it. We're not talking, but we're gonna outworked Joe mansion, and people are gonna know on the conservative fighter will help the president Joe Manchin. He's dishonest Washington liberal, and he's never there when you need 'em. All right. We're watching this race. Now put this in the tossup column where we once thought it was leaning democrat now the state of West Virginia and play attorney general Patrick Morrissey would support the president's agenda versus Joe Manchin who sadly would vote for Chuck Schumer sad. Anyway, it's a dead even race at this point. And with early voting. There is a very good shot that that could change hands that would help future endeavors in the US Senate. And we wish all the best Patrick MARCY. Hey, sean. Thanks so much and anyone interested in learning about a race. You know, we're at Patrick Warsi dot com. Take a walk. We've got a heck of a good record of going after the Obama agenda and supporting President Trump. All right. Thank you, sir. For being with us. Listen, I am a big supporter of the second amendment right to keep him bear arms. Defend.

"The thing that's worrisome in Minnesota, Tina Smith. She has not been elected yet. She hasn't had a general election and her name recognition is actually lower than MS Housley again with Karin Housley being well known in the state as the wife of a of a former NFL player. And of course she's, you know, well established in her own right, Indiana. We have Donnelly going against Braun. Donald has been one of these Democrats these kind of like Joe Manchin, but not quite as Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin is Joe mansion trying to protect his own hide in West Virginia difficult to be a democrat in the state where Trump won by forty percentage points. So he's doing what he has to do in his own mind to stay in power. And I would not be surprised if he just ends up switching parties and becomes a Republican. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens. Certainly wouldn't be the first time. I believe Charlie Crist did a similar thing out of Florida. So that's a close race. Again, a race that the Donnelly is the incumbent a race that the dams must hold. Braun is coming in. He's got that tea party support. He's got that Trump support and states like Indiana, you know, I'm telling you, we, we heard if you get a chance, listen to Konya west when he was in the White House today. Listen to him talking about when he puts on the mega hat make America. Great. Again, when he puts on that hat, he feels power. He talks about this. He talks about that. We didn't have a dad. He talks about how he's around feminine energy all day. So he really likes the way that Trump makes him feel masculine just. Things that we know. I understood. Got it. But that doesn't mean that you should fall for it, but it's nice to hear someone say out loud though. It's nice to hear someone comes so this Connie west is very transparent. Yeah, he is, but it's really nice to hear someone like self aware enough to say, I do this because it makes me feel powerful because I'm threatened by the women around me. I need some help to bring my masculinity back. That's I don't have enough confidence in myself to just live a life. Right. You know, just just live your life, you know, in, you know, he's admitting that he doesn't have that, and he needs a red hat to make him feel that. Yes, I understand. And just a brief update them onto the wine now? No. No, through into the aperitif per team at the lodge, rock is drinking Boone's farm for his aperitif and God knows what everyone else is drinking Donald Trump's just drink in DIKO, of course through all this. Yeah, he's a yeah through every single bit of this. He is sober. Think about about that for second. All right now also. So that's that's Indiana Bronco again, that's going to be a doozy in a state like that for a democrat in this era. Now where Trump and his Trumpism this anti Trump, it's dead. Yeah, Trump is is it's the way of the land and it's com- looking now, it's republicanism and it's just been so norm. It's normalized, which again, not normal. Nothing happening is normal. Now don't forget that and times will change. So that's going to be a tough seat for the Dem's to hold. Let's go to Florida. We have Bill Nelson versus former governor, Rick Scott, Rick, Scott, he has, you know, he's got a lot of support lot of name. Recognition, Bill Nelson in this is another one of those really weird races were Rick. Scott is again, sort of running as a change candidate despite the fact he's been a politician for many years, but Bill Nelson has been there. He's another one of these old timers when you listen to them talk. I'm not quite sure if he's relating to the people of Florida quite well enough, Rick. Scott was out there when it came to the one thing about the storm hurricane Michael..

Some people feeling like the Republicans are competent some people like saying, they don't know. I don't know. What do you think? Jake Sherman day are confident, and I don't know I it publicly confident I will tell you this compared to last week. They are much more confident, you know, last week, John. Cornyn mountains if we're making good progress. You know, I don't wanna make predictions and yesterday Mitch McConnell said. And and John Cornyn said and Chuck Grassley said they all feel good about the nomination and they're optimistic tone. In in the Republican leadership. And I don't think I don't know this. I don't think that Mitch McConnell would bring this to the floor if you were short. But at some point you got to vote you gotta put. We got to put the points on the board and see where they fall and he's going to do that. And what's interesting to me, the political consequences? The great Kevin is in my view. A very good man has been slammed imminently qualified, and I'm angry about it. On the other hand. I'm also aware that it's not the Republicans fault. If he fails it will be three Republicans. But the consequence if he fails will be the devastation of the Republican party and Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins will Luther gavels we'll lose the Senate on the other hand if he's confirmed unequipped my hold onto the house because I have never I've been doing this since two thousand this national show, Jake, and I have been doing radio since nineteen Ninety-one. I have never had this easier time doing radio because people are so furious. First time women callers, only that's unheard of. I can do it all week. May I disagree with you for a second? Sure. Of course. Okay. So I actually don't think this has a positive impact on the house representatives based on my conversations with senior Republicans were involved in the battle for the house of the last couple of days. And I think there's an argument to be made whether it's.

"Have there been any political deal with him for that vote or was that mostly based on him wanting to lock up reelection in West Virginia. I mean, because obviously, in some votes, you know, your people reach out to you deals are made. Well, I think it's pretty tricky to make a deal. In this case. I can't imagine that Joe Manchin wanted to be the one democrat of voting of voting for Brett Cavanaugh. I don't think he light a being in that position at all, but I suspect which mansions political calculation is he needs to win. Voters voted not only for Donald Trump, but for him, there are a lot of Trump mentioned voters in West Virginia, and I suspect that is a bigger political calculation from the bitter piece of that calculation. Then perhaps antagonizing elements of his base, you know, where are they going to go at this point? Are they going to support the Republican MARCY? So they really have nowhere to go. I mean, they can stay home, but I suspect that would be self-defeating. I mean, at least with Joe Manchin we'll get somebody who supports democratic values, you know, more often than Republican would. We're used to prize by the way things fell into place. It. Not particularly. I thought that well, by the way, I think Susan Collins is one of the finest centers, great metric to me and very thoughtful member the US Senate, and I have the highest respect for her, but I was not surprised by where Susan Collins came down or we're Joe matching, came down. I was a little surprised by Lisa Murkowski's reasoning for not voting for cavenaugh. I thought she might have relied upon unity, shake concerns about Kavanagh's support for native Americans and federal land issues. But she, I think she made it more about his temperaments that that may be surprised me a little bit, but I was not surprised by flake mansion or Collins didn't surprise by how nasty this was. I mean, and what does it mean moving forward from here? I mean, one can say, well, look the, it's not every day somebody's accused of sexual assault and certainly not a supreme court Justice, you know, in in modern times, so it's not a template, but do you see this as. It's kind of a new normal. I'm afraid it is, you know, I guess I'm kind of old fashioned about this when I served in the US house. I, I saw, I think five supreme court justices be confirmed Roberts, Alito Kagan sort of your and Gorsuch in when I was asked, I was a house member. Most people didn't care what I had to think about, say about this because I was not in the Senate, but I had said at each time that I thought each of them was qualified and deserved to be beyond the court, even if I might not have agreed with them all philosophically and I think we've gotten the gotten away from this. I mean, this has become so partisan in so ideological that that you know a democrat can acknowledge that maybe a Republican nominee is actually fit the serve as a judge based on his his or her abilities. And you know, and Republicans are saying the same thing about democratic nominees, miss it bad. We're a bad place, truly a congressman. Thank you very much. I appreciate it.
