FBI searched Biden home, found items marked classified
"An attorney for Joe Biden says additional documents with classified markings were found at the president's Wilmington home on Friday. Instead of saying there's no there there. Democratic senator Joe Manchin would like to hear President Biden take responsibility for the classified documents that have been found. He sure didn't intend for it to fall in the wrong hands and use it against our country. I know they didn't intend that to happen. Could it have happened? I don't know. And yeah, you just might as well say, listen. It's irresponsible. It was something that we should have had a better check and balance on. GOP congresswoman Nancy mace of South Carolina says she's disappointed that it took so long for the Biden administration to first admit the wrongdoing. I am grateful that the president is now being more transparent about it, but he did hide it for two months once it was discovered, and then nobody knew about it for 5 years. Both mason Manchin appeared on NBC's meet the press. I'm Shelley Adler

Governor Pete Ricketts Selected to Fill Nebraska Senate Seat
"Governor. You know, Mitt Romney was a governor became a senator. Joe Manchin was a governor became a senator. It's a very different way of are you used to slowing down a lot because you used to have to make things happen in Nebraska. Now you're going to have to watch things go slow. What do you think? Well, that's what I have been told that as governor, you know, there's a sense of urgency about everything you're doing because you've got to make things happen. The Senate by its design, right? Our founders wanted a body that would slow things down. They didn't want politics to be whipsawed back and forth. And so that's how they designed the Senate to work. So I've got to change my mindset with regard to how this goes. But it's certainly informed been an important institution for us over the years to provide that stability for our country. We can certainly see that when you're compared to say the parliamentary systems around the world that can change governments at a drop of a hat. Governor ricketts shouldn't be senator ricketts. I don't know if you've talked to leader McConnell yet. I am a great fan of leader McConnell. I think he saved the United States Constitution when he held open the vacancy created by the untimely death of Antonin Scalia. And I think he got Donald Trump elected, and of course he got Donald Trump's nominees confirmed. Have you talked to him yet about what you want to do and your priority? Yeah, I have as a matter of fact, I just had a conversation with him last night where he was giving us an advice. Not that due to similar to what you said. He was urging patients because the Senate moves slower. But I've actually known senator McConnell since I ran for Senate back in 2006. And I'm staying in touch with him over the years. So I'm looking forward to working with him. And I agree with you, you know? He is a very strategic thinker. He's really done a great job for us in the U.S. Senate as leader and I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to be able to learn from it.

Why Joe Manchin Has No Political Future
"Joe Manchin is facing a very precarious situation now in West Virginia. He's up for reelection in two years. Now it has to be said that he was opposed by a pretty good candidate in 2018 and he managed to pull through. And so you can't underestimate Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin has shown that even in a red state, West Virginia, by the way, used to be reliably democratic all the way in the certainly the second half of the 20th century is only started moving into the conservative camp into the Republican camp after that, but it's now Trump country. I mean, Trump won, I have the number here somewhere. Trump beat Biden by 39 points in West Virginia, so West Virginia is now red and getting redder. And a guy like Joe Manchin should have no chance in West Virginia. Now, as I say, he proved the doubters wrong in 2018. In part by saying, hey, I'm a really likeable guy. I'm a mister West Virginia, my opponent is a flawed candidate. And moreover, I'm an independent thinker. I don't play by anybody's playbook. I will defend the interests of West Virginia, but the real question is, has he? Has Joe Manchin been defending the interests of West Virginia and the answer is no. He's been selling them down the pike for on the issue of coal. He's been so he has been allowing the Democrats who are the deadly enemies of the interests of west virginians to run roughshod or to run amok. And so he doesn't deserve to be to be reelected.

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema Ditches Democrat Party, Goes Independent
"As I call and have these great conversations, people are telling me, I'm just looking for some good news. Well, how about this bombshell? Kyrsten sinema. Ditching the Democrats as it's all over Fox News, big Fox News alert. Cinema ditches dem switches to independent, huge story, the big shake up, it's a big, big defeat for Chuck Schumer and the Democrats. Now, I get that it's not the same as if Herschel Walker had won. But what it does is send a powerful, powerful wake-up call to Joe Manchin because now he's got more influence again and it gets back down to him in many cases. The mainstream media is going to try to poo poo this. Oh, it's not that big. It's a big deal.

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema Is Leaving the Democratic Party
"Big news today, I'll start with that. Kristen sinema is leaving the Democratic Party. She's becoming an independent. And that's really important because it's subtracts one, or at least one reliable vote from the Democrats. Now, the Democrats won the race in Georgia, and I'll talk about that in a moment. Very bad news for us, but this somewhat neutralizes that. Now cinema is not joining the Republican Party. I wish she did. And I also wish that this is a prod to Joe Manchin. I did sort of a whimsical tweet this morning, I said, well, cinema leaving the Democratic Party is kind of cinematic by which I meant colorful, but Joe Manchin becoming a Republican would be, well, kind of fantastic, which is just a great I hope he considers that it would actually secure his position, his future in West Virginia, which is, well, a little precarious right about now.

Shame on the 200,000 Georgia Republicans Who Stayed Home
"Listen, I'm going to say shame on the Georgia Republicans who stayed home. You let the country down. Now we're going to have some suffering and frankly, you did that. And I mean, you could argue with me all day long. All you do is show up and pull the lever. Showed up, if 200,000 Georgia Republicans show up the same ones who voted for him on November 8th, if you just showed up, it had been a 50 50 tie, would go back to Joe Manchin, having extraordinary power and pinning some of our hopes on him to make it tough for Schumer and the Democrats, now Biden's judicial appointments will have an easier time of sailing through countries going to hurt.

Georgia Still Matters
"Listening to me in Georgia. And I do have a lot of listeners in Georgia. You have to vote today and you have to get everybody you know to vote. I know that there are a lot of people are dispirited. It doesn't matter. You can't act on being dispirited. You have to act on what can do good. If the Democrats have a 51 49 majority, then it doesn't matter if there's one dissenting Democrat in any Senate vote. Like Joe Manchin, it doesn't matter. For Kristen sinema, right? So it's an extremely important vote. The Republicans did not take the Senate. Calamity. Give me the damage that the Democrats are doing to the country. But I just have to repeat. There's another reason committee assignments are 50 50 now. Because the vice president only matters in voting, but not in committee assignments.

What Have We Learned and What Is Our Strategy?
"Says Charlie, this is actually a really good question. Charlie, what have we learned and what is our strategy? Look, a movement that does not adapt. A military that does not adapt. An organization that does not adapt will die. It's that simple. You must always constantly be adapting and improving. And one thing that we have to learn from is in Maricopa County, if we just all broadcast election day election day election day, it doesn't go well. You can sabotage ambushes all this nonsense. So instead, and I want to make sure I'm very clear about this. The ideal, the ideal way, how we want elections to operate is different than what we have to navigate. The ideal I would love to have a national day where everyone goes and votes. Voter ID, one day of voting, that's it. The way France does it, you know the winner by the election night, but that's not the world we live in. So if you live in Georgia, I would not recommend voting by mail. But in person early voting. In person early voting, go get your vote banked. We need the entire America first, the entire conservative movement in Georgia. I could tell you there's going to be shenanigans and nonsense and all of this, but we have got to get Herschel Walker across the finish line. This is the difference between the Democrats, having reliable 52 48 Senate or a 50 50 Senate. And with a 50 50 Senate, you're going to have cinema in a tough reelection fight and cinema with hopefully a tough primary challenge that seems to be bubbling up in Arizona with congressman gallego. And also Joe Manchin, who's going to have a very difficult race if he decides to proceed. Joe Manchin just might go become a lobbyist. Where it looks as if the popular governor justice might run Morrissey might run. There's a lot of different people in West Virginia that will keep pressure on Manchin. So this Democrat 50 50 majority won't really even feel like a majority.
J. D. Vance: Tim Ryan Will Vote to Get Rid of the Filibuster
"And I just want to be clear I think I have been to the people in Ohio to conservatives and Republicans I've gotten to know you much much better and I have a great deal of respect for you and what you're doing and how you're going about doing it You're up against the Democrat party machine All of our guys and gals are pouring tons of money into these races to try and redefine who you are and to try and redefine who Tim reiners who the Democrat is And then they complain about dark money The other thing I'm worried about is they're at war on the constitution If this guy Tim Ryan goes then he's going to vote to get rid of the filibuster rule and they're going to ram through everything possible aren't they That's right And they've also he's voted to add Puerto Rico to the state list He's voted to add an additional state of course Washington D.C. That's four new Democrats That's exactly that's 40 Democrats that's awful for the United States Constitution And look you really Mark you know this better than I do But the constitution is fundamentally it's the set of rules that govern how we do self government in this country right And what I can't stand about this effort to change the filibuster to completely nationalize our elections to add new states so they can add more Democrats senators They're just trying to change the rules They know they can't win in a fair fight So they're trying to change the rules and it's one of the reasons why this election is so important because look of course I don't agree with Joe Manchin about most things I do give him credit for saving us from Washington D.C. as the 51st U.S. state I do give him credit for saving the filibuster but look can we count on them indefinitely I don't think that we can't

Biden Announces Release of 15M Barrels From Oil Reserve
"So just like to bring to your attention, that the president of the United States who is daily does something horrible to hurt this country. It's a very sick estate of affairs. I must say, so the latest is, I want to get the release of, I'll just look this up. Biden, let's see, probably release oil reserves. So you have to understand, this is what this is the result of what the environmentalists, the this cult has done by having us go from net exporter to having to import from Venezuela, a police state, a communist police state. And constantly going into the oil reserves of the United States that's for emergency. Biden to release 15 million barrels. This is just the latest. He just did this similar amount the other day. 15 million barrels of oil from the national strategic reserve. That is for emergencies. So let me ruin this country further. That is how the man wakes up every day because he is a nothing who is a tool of the left and it would be no different if Kamala Harris from president or any other Democrat I could think of. Maybe Joe Manchin or Kristen sinema being president would be different, maybe. 99% of the Democrats would do the exact same thing Joe Biden does, which is why I talk about Joe Biden almost never. I talk about the left and the Democratic Party.

Sen. Bill Hagerty: The Challenges of Talking to Democrat Senators
"Bill, when you talk to your fellow senators on the Democrat side of the aisle and I talk to a lot of Republican senators and House members, very few of them are actually talking to people across the aisle because there's really nothing they can offer that is worth a conversation. But do you hear from any of the senators from these blue states? I mean, Joe Manchin sold out his state for a promise that Schumer broke. I mean, you've got senators in Louisiana that are oil producing states. Do they do they even try to excuse what this administration is doing? You know, it's really challenging. I saw that today, Chuck Schumer came out and said, we're going to pursue notepad, which is allowing the organization of the OPEC states to Saudis the UAE to be sued in U.S. antitrust courts for price fixing. That's the solution to the fact that rather than pumping more oil and gas to make us more dependent on them. They decided to pump less. And he's going to be very tough. He's going to be bipartisan in terms of imposing that solution. But he doesn't mention the fact that it's his own administration that took us from energy independence less than two years ago to a position where we're now on our knees begging the Saudis a bit bigger than the UAE to put more oral and they're flipping their nose at us. And saying, you know what, we're actually going to cut back on it. We're going to drive prices even further through the roof. We're going to take your own strategic petroleum reserves from you and we're going to sell it back to you at a higher price.

Rep. Kelly Armstrong Shares the Latest on the Continuing Resolution
"It should be the month in which your finalizing actual appropriations, actual plans, actual stuff. But as we've come to find out, this is, you know, and we experienced this, we even who we are majority is, we got a very broken appropriation system in D.C., and in a lot of reasons for that, but it needs to fix. A lot of stuff's being talked about now about adding on how far the CR continuing resolution is going to go. Give us a little bit of an update on what that looks like and how we can fit that in. Sure. I think right now, I mean, this week in D.C. is what I call a filler week. You understand what I mean. We're voting on suspensions. We're doing some of those things because the Democrats in the Senate are trying to negotiate whether they can get Joe Manchin's super secret top secret permitting Bill attached to it, and they've got 72 House progressives who said they aren't going to support it. Bernie has already come out against it. And at the same time, you're trying to negotiate whether the CR will run until December or potentially till January. So my guess is the permitting stuff will end up off the bill. I don't know how they get there. They're not getting a lot of sympathy from Republicans on the Senate side, permitting is something I actually know a little bit about, considering North Dakota and the oil and gas in the shale boom. I don't think any Republicans have been brought into the conversation on this. So my guess is by the end of this week, I mean, if I had to guess and this is just game theory, we'll find out that the permitting stuff's going to be stripped off, which is what I said when the original build back mansion Bill came to the floor anyway.

Ralph Norman: Democrats Will Not Succeed to Remove the Filibuster
"On, the vice president Kamala Harris in an interview said, excuse me, she was speaking at the national harbor on Saturday in Maryland. And she said that she can not wait to cast the deciding vote to break the filibuster on voting rights and reproductive rights I can not wait. Thanks to obviously Joe Manchin and Kristen sinema, that has not happened yet. Do you see the Democrats being successful in breaking the filibuster? No, because I think Manchin is on record and sentiment is too that they oppose it. And they know that this goes back and forth between who's in the majority and who's in the minority. And it works both ways, but thank God they do have it because the legislation that she's talking about voting rights and reproductive rights. I mean, she staked herself out. She does not want voter ID photo voter ID. She won't abortion owned demand. She thinks abortion is healthcare. And those things will often America as we've never seen before, along with everything else that this administration is doing. And Kamala Harris. And then that's what she wants. But I don't think she's going to get it because I don't think how does Joe Manchin walk it back in reverse incentive? How does she walk it back? I don't think they can.

Many People Are Annoyed With Joe Manchin
"Many people me included are annoyed with Joe Manchin. Why? Because Joe Manchin seems to play a now familiar tediously familiar and downright exasperating game. The game is this that Manchin tells his constituents that he is not an ordinary Democrat. He's not a Democrat of today. He might be a Democrat of old, but he's not a Democrat like today's Democrats. He's not a polo C Democrat. He's not a Schumer Democrat. He's a West Virginia Democrat, which means that he is a centrist. He is a moderate, he tries to bring parties together and he is driven by really West Virginia values. What's good for West Virginia. And this has allowed Manchin to be elected and reelected, how because he gets the, he gets the moderate Democrats of West Virginia. And then he gets a fair amount of Republicans who are, by the way, a majority in West Virginia, Trump won the state, decisively. And these are people who trust Manchin to live up to his end of the bargain. In other words, to be what he says he is. And mentioned then turns around and this is not the first time he's done this and betrays the bargain. So he holds out giving people hope and encouragement. Yeah, that's Manchin and Manchin is going to remember he's not a normal Democrat. And then at the end of it, what Manchin does is he cuts a deal with the Democrats. Maintaining his standing within the party and so here's this very influential Democrat at a critical time when the Senate is 50 50 and man should knows he has the power to swing things one way or the other. He holds out and then he swings with the Democrats.

Poll: Inflation, Crime Still Top Concerns for Voters
"I do want to get into some of these poll numbers and Rasmussen has it up to date for us. And folks, look, I'm just going to be honest. Number one, okay, number one, it states that inflation and crime are still the biggest issues for Americans. But at the same time, believe it or not, Biden, old number to the approval numbers are starting to go up in Nebraska and hasn't today in their daily cracking, sit down if you're not sitting down. Has Biden at 47%. And why would Biden be afforded that? Well, you're starting to see a coalescing around Biden. Democrat. Maybe even a little bit of the moderates and independents. There's a few reasons for this. One of the big ones that bruiser Andrew had a good point about this earlier was that the bill that Biden passed over the weekend or the path he was on vacation, right? Because again, put him in front of the camera. I'm not even actually sure who it was to pass the bill. By nominally signed off and to learn 300 by the single page of it. And I'm sure if you actually got him down and asked him, he couldn't explain to you a single provision that's in the Bill. But they called it the inflation reduction act. I called the inflation corrupt. We talked also that who was it lobbying behind the theme for this thing, Bill Gates, Bill Gates, taking up the phone, making secret conversations with Joe Manchin of West Virginia, pushing to get management across the line. And why was this? Because this wasn't about inflation. This was a backdoor Green New Deal.

"joe manchin" Discussed on Mike Gallagher Podcast
"Joe Manchin who, as you know, last week, finally yielded to the pressure of the Democrats, he caved to Chuck Schumer, and has agreed on another massive spending bill. He made the rounds yesterday on all the Sunday talk shows. Trying to explain his position now, it's a tough one to explain. And some of them, some of his colleagues aren't buying it, for example, senator pat toomey. He's Republican for Pennsylvania, as you know. He criticized this new climate healthcare tax package that senator Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer unveiled last week after Joe Manchin decided, well, maybe I do like spending money after all. In an interview with face the nation, to me suggested that mansion was taken to the cleaners. In this inflation reduction act, now you remember that the very reason that Joe Manchin did not support the build back better program last year was because he said that he was afraid that additional federal spending would fuel inflation, which it will. We know that we've seen it. That's why we are where we are today because of the trillions of dollars in the name of COVID that Joe Biden and our federal government has spent.

"A West Virginia senator coal country is taxing his own constituents after he has already said you don't do a tax increase in the middle of a recession. Well, that's exactly what Joe Manchin has done. But maybe what he admitted to hoppy kercheval helps explain why. When we were working and negotiating, we started our staff started back way back in April. And first of all, nobody in the right mind after I have been ostracized for how long and victimized, if you will, because I killed the DDB because the BBB was just the I think about the offer our economy is a bad deal for our country and to change the trajectory. We are as people. So I was totally opposed to that in America kept saying, build back better, build back better, smaller. There's no such thing as a build back better. This is truly going to be around inflation reduction. So what we did, we started talking start negotiating in this and that everything else. And the bill that we had there were some things in that bill that we were negotiating up until when the 9.1% came out, there were some things in the bill that I was concerned about that could be looked to be on to be inflationary inflammatory. So I told you more on Thursday as a chuck. I want to wait. I'm not satisfied with the way some of the things we have, then we better wait and see what this inflation figures are for the month of July because everyone was saying, it's going to go down, go down, go down. I've been hearing that since it was 6% and one to 8% and went to 9.1, 9.1. So I told my staff after the instruct got mad, and he said, well, you're walking. You're not going to do this and that, not your chuck. I'm not walking away from anything. I'm just being very cautious. The people must Virginia can't at Ford, higher prices. They can't afford higher gasoline prices. So what changed? For energy prices. So I said, I told my staff to start scrubbing it.

"joe manchin" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Card. Got the card that's built for business. By American Express senator Joe Manchin, says he won't vote for Biden's $2 trillion family and climate policy Bill. By Alan Fran, and hope yen, Associated Press, Washington. Democratic senator Joe Manchin said Sunday he can not back his party's signature $2 trillion social and environmental bill, dealing a potentially fatal blow to president Joe Biden's leading domestic initiative heading into an election year when Democrats narrow hold on Congress was already in peril. Manchin told Fox News Sunday that, after 5 and a half months of negotiations among Democrats in which he was his party's chief obstacle to passage, I can not vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can't. I've tried everything humanly possible I can't get there. Mansion's choice of words seemed to crack the door open to continued talks with Biden and top congressional Democrats over reshaping the legislation. But the West Virginia senator all but said the bill would die. Unless it met his demands for a smaller, less sweeping package, something that would be hard for many Democrats in the narrowly divided Congress to accept. The bill would provide hundreds of billions of dollars to help millions of families with children by extending a more generous child tax credit, creating free preschool and bolstering child care aid. There is more than $500 billion for tax breaks and spending aimed at curbing carbon emissions, which experts consider the largest federal expenditure ever to combat climate change. Other provisions would limit prescription drug price increases, create hearing benefits for Medicare recipients and bolster aid for the elderly, housing and job training. Nearly all of it would be paid for with higher taxes on the wealthy and large corporations. In an unusually hardball response to a lawmaker whose vote is crucial in the 50 50 Senate, White House press secretary Jen Psaki called mansion's announcement, a sudden and inexplicable reversal in his position and a breach of his commitments to Biden and congressional Democrats. She pointedly said that mansion, whose state is among the nation's poorest, will have to explain why many families will have to cope with higher health and child care costs, the bill is intended to address. Psaki said in a statement that mansion had in person given Biden a written proposal last Tuesday that was the same size and scope of a framework for the bill that Democrats rallied behind in October and agreed he'd continue talks. That framework had a ten year cost of $1.85 trillion. Officials hadn't previously disclosed that Tuesday meeting. We will continue to press him to see if he will reverse his position yet again to honor his prior commitments and be true to his word. Imagine aide gave The White House about a 20 minute notice before the lawmaker announced his position on national television, said a person familiar with the senator's actions who describe them only on condition of anonymity. The legislations collapse would deepen bitter ideological divisions between progressive and moderate Democrats. That would imperil the party's ability to get behind any substantial legislation before the November congressional elections when their control of Congress seems endowed, and it would add.

"Welcome to another edition of m p sunday at joined the poor people's campaign in west virginia in front of the state capital to march on mansion with the co chairs of the poor people's campaign dr lucille harris. Dr william j barbour the second and a couple of the co chairs of the west virginia poor people's campaign we'll be hearing from them in today's broadcast. Bishops barber pointed out that mansion is you have undoubtedly heard him refer to the bill back better plan that he's blocking as entitlement but west virginians would greatly benefit from this plan in disproportionately white west. Virginia's his bishop barbara said on sunday. The word entitlement is cold for giving stuff to black folk. But here's what. Joe mansion is costing his own citizens in west virginia by not supporting bill. Beg better. He's causing them. Seventeen thousand two hundred nine in new jobs. He's costing three hundred forty six thousand west. Virginia children expanded child tax credits expanded earn income tax credits for one hundred ten thousand workers without children. He's causing them. Universal pre-k and childcare paid family medical. Leave for eight thousand fifty west virginians. He's causing them dental vision and hearing services for four hundred forty one thousand eight hundred fifty two medicare beneficiaries. You can watch the rally from sunday across all of our social media. make it plain and the poor people's campaign and doctor barber's social media. All of that is available for you to see but something has to be non in fact tomorrow wednesday. we're going to go back to dc and in dc. We'll have a rally again. Joe mansion is not serving his own constituency in worse virginia. So we're gonna hear from some folk in west. Virginia right now and make it plain take a listen dr steele harris co chair of the poor people's campaign doctor. Liz how you feel about camping in west virginia and its impact on demand. We know it's having an impact we've been hearing every time we do an action like this every time there's a gathering or revival march you know it it. It comes out sped that he feels he has to make and so we. We haven't moved him to where we need to yet. But but it's it's clear that the people coming together saying you're not doing this on our behalf. This is not what the people west virginia. It's a powerful message and and to have folks today gathered in front of the state capital from all across the state. Having this message of of the the impact that it's going to have that it's already having West virginia who have been forgotten the poor the seven hundred thousand four and low income people of west virginia who have been forgotten you know through his forty years of political office in the state And who are are going to suffer greatly If they continue to cut this bill back better plan and deny voting rights and denied the wages And so i feel really excited and really empowered and really committed to keeping up the fight. Because it's clear that that this is a fight that needs to be going on. Now he is. He's one senator. making decisions. represented a small percentage of the entire population added states. But as we learned from how west virginians will be disproportionately affected without. Build back better. He's also representing only a fraction of west virginia. Well and the fact that around voting rights for instance that that seventy nine percent of all the people in west virginia including republicans including independence including democrats all support expanding voting rights. The fact that when you pull out these different programs with as the child tax credit or whether it's you know early childhood occasion that the vast majority of people here in west virginia want and are asking are demanding approach and then he has the nerve to to go back and say that he's doing this because it's what's best for the people of west virginia well when he when he met with the poor people's campaign in february and was talking to these low wage workers essential workers and telling folks that that they did not deserve fifteen dollars hour. That was more responsible and reasonable. Those are the words he used more responsible and reasonable with eleven dollars an hour when it would take twenty three dollars and fifty cents an hour in west virginia to make a living wage. You know the question is who are you. Being responsible to is surely not the low wage workers of your say. It's surely not the moms grandma's statement it's it's clearly. The corporations that that are are aligning your pockets And lining families pockets with In order to wealth when people are suffering in the state the second poorest state in the country and yet you can have senator blocking investing in the people and his reimburse. Those people in west virginia are predominantly white. So when he says we don't want entitlement said that's code oftentimes folks get people titles but he's really talking about denying what a majority of white citizens in west virginia actually need. That's right and when he when he suggests means testing when he suggests work requirements for these kinds of programs what that means is punishing poor. People that that's what it means and and punishing poor white people punishing black people for latino people but again yes. In the state of west virginia vast majority poor and low income white people who who who need their government and their elected leadership to actually invest in them and and and to to say that we live in the richest country in human history and to be in a state like west virginia where companies and corporations have been stealing from for generation to say that we don't the resources to to actually invest in the people to actually lift a load of poverty it. It's it's it's not just a lie. It's a deeply immoral. I and and what does it say you know as a faith leader. What is what. Are you putting on god when you say we can't do this because we don't have the resources to do it. And in fact the people who need it the most are lazy and crazy and stupid and to be blamed not just for their poverty for all of society's problems when it's instead those with wealth and power who lie abed bed late in their night Thinking about ways to hurt people documents.

"Hey guys you know then. I'm really sorry. You're having to go through the gop. Lawmakers thinking joe manchin and kristen cinema for helping now fall let joe mansion still believes. He can't imagine a world where he would support a carve out the filibuster rules. This is him on state of the union. Yesterday with jake tapper. Listen there any circumstances under which you could imagine allowing a carve out for the. I know you oppose getting rid of the filibuster but there. There's some people. In the more. Moderate camp like a angus king remain is an independent. Who said that. He's possibly willing to step back from the filibuster his opposition to getting rid of the filibuster just for voting rights. Because he's so concerned and it becomes. It's become so partisan. Can you imagine doing that. Jake can't imagine car back crash not even a carve out even a cough voting rights. Can we get an explanation. Because i was hearing twenty-third team it was called a carve out. We're just going to do the cabinet for the president and then it went into. We're going to do the judges. Who are lifetime appointments for circuit and district. They've even going to do supreme court but they didn't at that time. The democrats were in control 2017. Mitch mcconnell gene control comes right back in and guess what that carve out worked really carve up pretty bad. Then you've got the supreme court okay so there's no stopping it. We just need a car to protect. Voting rights. voting rights the cornerstone of democracy. We can't get a car for that. See this is. This is why just voting democrat doesn't always mean progress okay joe. Manson is willing and able to block. His party's progress in for what because he's not beholden to the democratic party is political brand isn't hitched to the democratic wagon. He's a senator. Okay and gop leading west virginia a very rich state. He's not giving that up for you. Negroes right salute to west virginia by the way to biscuit. World trump include bus tudor's biscuit world. mike amazing. Who cares if you need roses mad. Okay joe manchin knows where his white bread is. But it apologies. He doesn't one but he wants manny's let me do that again. Joe manson knows where his white bread is managed. And it's not what you negroes and you negro lovers okay. Here's the thing. I just will never understand why anyone who claims to be a patriot. Who claims to be a proud citizen of the united states of america isn't trying to fight like hell to preserve what is the cornerstone of democracy free and fair elections are what democracy is all about. So if you love america like you say you do you would fight like hell so folks can have the right to vote. Will i can guarantee you this. If joe matches people's voting rights with threaten he would be acting like it. It would be a totally different sense of urgency in regards to protecting voting rights. But it's just mostly unique grosso. Who cares okay. If that's not the case. Joe manchin has to show me. That's not the case. But hey i've been alive long enough to know that when a person consistently shows you who they are believed them when something changes if something changes if joe manchin starts doing the right thing by this democracy i will let you know until then please let remark give joe manton the biggest he.

"It's a kind of key thing but it's growing importance because with mansion and carson cinemas saying that they will not break the filibuster You had chuck schumer in march. Come up with this new idea That he would try to use budget. Reconciliation which is a process. It only requires only a simple majority so only fifty one votes us budget reconciliation to pass the rest as much of the biden. Agendas he can. The problem is is that reconciliation is only supposed to be used once per fiscal year so schumer and march kind of came up with this novel and crazy theory that in fact when you looked at the nine hundred and seventy four budget law it actually gave him the power to keep revising that one annual bill therefore giving him endless fifty one vehicles For to to to use during the year and this is where the senate parliamentarian came in Last week she issued guidance. Actually morley a ruling saying that while revision is possible that the loss framers made pretty clear. It should only be used in situations where there's sharply changed. Economic conditions. Not should not be used to just avoid the filibuster as clearly. Mr schumer was proposing doing it but more importantly she ruled that If you were going to have a revision the budget committee actually has to have a vote and pass it to the floor and that just creates a technical problem for the democrats because budget panel is currently. Split eleven eleven. No republican is going to vote for it in theory. The full senate could vote to break a tie but if it really got to that point the meme the republican members could simply boycott any proceedings and and and prevent a committee vote from happening in the first place. So it looks as though he's gonna it means in reality. He's got one more bite at the reconciliation apple this year the bill for fiscal twenty twenty two and that's kind of a problem because He have to jam a lot of stuff in there and that might make democrats nervous or they'd have to make a choice. Essentially i mean biden. These infrastructure negotiations with republicans are still ongoing. So the latest number is kind of a moving target but biden's proposal was for two point three trillion dollars of infrastructure. Then a family's plan that is about one point eight trillion dollars And so bill if you only have one one shot here at reconciliation than the choices seems to me. Is you either. Put all that stuff together into a I don't know four trillion dollar bill and try to see if you can get the moderates on board to pass something of that scale or bill biden has to make a decision of what he really you know what his priority is..

"Yeah i i think i mean part of me. suspects that this is part of the pressure. This partly a response to the pressure is getting remember back in early february or late. January kamala harris came to the state and didn't interview. that's without his knowledge. That seemed like she was putting the squeeze on them Recently joe biden. You know Mentioned not by name but suggested that he voted with republicans more than democrats. Which isn't true. I don't think he appreciates that. And the problem is in a fifty fifty senate. Everyone on your side is a king. Everyone is a potential deal maker or dealbreaker if they go in a different way and for joe manchin. You know there's a lot of pressure on him now democratic paul's from left-wingers. I'm not sure he cares about that as much as what the people of his home state think. And i think that it's a i think that it's a good place for him to be in that. I am a moderate. I am not willing to go this far. Especially for such a A left wing agenda. Because that's what the filibuster is. Filibuster is roadblock to this whole agenda. That's that's with undestanding. Higher taxes the change in our electoral laws of federalizing over our elections and he knows that and i suspect that there are a few other democratic senators that are not so brave but glad that he's doing this may give them cover. We'll see we'll see how the biden administration regroups because if he sticks to his guns. It really puts a lot of their agenda in jeopardy. The the question about whether there are other moderates who are sort of shielding behind mansion. Here is is an interesting one. Kim i mean what's your read of that one one guy i would ask about specifically as jon tester the democratic senator from montana who has also been asked about the filibuster and he has users more language and says things like my crystal ball isn't very clear we'll have to see what happens but he doesn't seem particularly eager to take that vote in order to push through biden's bigagenda oh sure mansion Curson cinema obviously from arizona. I think tester is on the fence. On this moreover. I think there's a lot of house. Democrats that are more centrist or in challenging districts. That no that quite aside from their own political fates that if democrats were to actually do this and eliminate the filibuster provoke an enormous political backlash The could cost democrats their their power in the house. And in the senate in next year's elections You know it is nonetheless striking to me And i think this helps..

"From the opinion pages of the wall street journal this is potomac. Watch senator joe. Manchin plants his flag on the filibuster and democrats election reform bill as another ruling by the senate. Parliamentarian complicates joe. Biden's broader agenda. Welcome kyle peterson with the wall. Street journal were joined today by my colleagues. Wj columnists kim strassel and bill mcgurn for months now. Democrats have been pushing. Hr one their bill to essentially federalize election rules. Nationwide saying that. This legislation is needed to to save american democracy more or less But in a fifty. Fifty senate bill can't pass unless democrats stick together and also agreed to eliminate the filibuster the rule that it takes sixty votes to advance legislation and on sunday west virginia. Senator joe manchin drew a pretty a pretty solid line in the sand Giving maybe his clearest expression yet on both issues it was an op-ed for the newspaper in charleston. West virginia He opposes hr one. He said he said he said this. Voting and election reform that has done in a partisan manner will ensure partisan divisions continue to deepen unquote. and cam. what do you think i mean. That's about as strong of a no from joe manchin on this. I think we're gonna get yeah and it doesn't look as though he's going to change his mind on that he subsequently had a meeting with civil rights groups of groups like the n. double a. c. p. They clearly gone in to try to louis him. He came out of that meeting saying nope I haven't changed my mind. We all at least know where we stand. But i still can't vote for this bill and one thing that i find really fascinating about this is if you look at joe manchin. He's not really a conviction politician His op ed. He didn't call out provisions of the bill and say i disagree with this that He rather to the extent that he has opposed legislation or Has stuck with keeping filibuster. His argument is that we need to pass. Bills in bipartisan manner. And there isn't a currently a single republican who can swallow hr one And so changes needed to be made for us to come together And that's interesting. Just because that's it doesn't necessarily allow democrats to say. Well we can fix this provision or that provision and finally get joe mansions though it would mean they have to start over and away and come up with some sort of bill that would get republican support. And that's hard to imagine it on the question of eliminating the filibuster. that's something that reporters on capitol hill have been asking joe mansion about badgering him. It seems like every five or ten minutes for months now and he reiterated his support there. And just a piece of the op ed. He said Do we really wanna live in an america where one party can dictate in demand. Everything in anything. It wants whenever it wants. I've always said if i can't go home and explain it. I can't vote for it. And i cannot explain. Strictly partisan election reform or blowing up senate rules to expedite. One party's agenda unquote and bill again. I know i know. Mansion has said no in the past that he's not interested in changing or eliminating the filibuster But putting putting it in black and white in print in a the local state newspaper is something. That's pretty hard to walk away from..

"Joe manchin stands his ground in the face of a growingly impatient democratic party. We'll discuss that. Plus president trump's returned to the spotlight puts democracy under fire and finally another weekend of deadly. Gun violence is highlighting the stalled legislation on capitol hill. Yesterday west virginia democratic senator joe manchin came out with an op ed in the charleston gazette mail and there were two central conclusions one. He would not be supporting the for the people act which meant to expand voting rights and access and to he would not vote to remove the filibuster on the voting rights. Bill mansion said quote. I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy already weakening binds of our democracy. And for that reason i will vote against the for the people act so mansion is sticking to his guns it comes to bipartisanship which is something. He has long touted but his party would argue that. It's not being met with good faith by the leadership on the other side and many democrats are frustrated with mansion and are no longer holding their tongues because as far as they see it the idea that republicans and democrats will see eye to eye on voting rights seems unimaginable given the slew of voting restriction bills pushed by the gop in recent weeks. Here's representative jamaal. Bowman of new york with a pretty sharp critique of the senator on cnn. Today joe mansion has become the new mitch. Mcconnell mitch mcconnell during obama's presidency said he would do everything in his power to stop obama and now joe mansion is doing everything in his power to stop democracy in. Stop our work for the people but this division within a democratic party essentially held hostage by mansion extends beyond voting rights mansions commitment to bipartisan legislation. Means that if democrats and the biden administration don't get the deal they want from republicans on something like infrastructure and are forced to go through reconciliation mansion gum up the entire process. Last friday president biden rejected a new counter offer made by republicans on infrastructure despite a fifty billion dollar increase in spending telling the gop's key negotiator that the new offer did not meet his policy goals. So even though president biden and republican negotiators senator. Capito are set to meet again today. The larger question looms at what point will democrats walk away from failing negotiations and choose to go this path alone and more critically will they be able to convince.

"But what should we be so scary to your point. John is that he has banned from social media. Other than a handful of like phone calls with maria bartiromo. He is absent for media yet. His power and control of the republican party is stronger than it was before which suggests that he is not the leader of the movement. He just a vessel for a very powerful movement exists and will persist after. He's gone and i do think that should force everyone to recognize that. What we're dealing with here is not about. Trump is a structural problem with an american politics. That trump benefited from he didn't create well. I also think that it's evidence that they're more evidence that there is a sort of closed right wing information ecosystem that donald trump both benefited from and helped build as well. And ben. you talk about this in the book to that. Like some of these autocrats. It's not that they just went over and took control of the of the media on their own and said that. Everything's going to be state run media. Some of what they did was similar to how the conservative media infrastructure has been built here in the united states. It's like a little more gradual than you might think. Putin really perfected this playbook and it started with his cronies buying up. Tv stations in the like. But it really didn't tip into this more dangerous virulent control that he has a society there until he realized how much you could just flood social media and manipulate the algorithm. I mean this is intentional. People know that they can kind of turbocharger narratives and conspiracy theories remember talking to to navalny we before tragically. He was poisoned and then imprisoned over the course of last summer and he was explained to me like how how comprehensive this was in that. Yes there of course trolls that were making him out to be a criminal and making him out to be an enemy of the russian people but there was also a huge conspiracy theory that actually no vanni was a double agent and he was working for the fsb the russian intelligence outlet and and this enraged on the because one of the things that they would argue in this conspiracy theories welfare is really an opponent of putin's he'd be dead by now. Nevada is like hey guys like i'm still alive. Does that mean. I'm double agent but it speaks to the fact that these these are in part the algorithms prioritizing sensationalism but this is by design. I don't think that's a conspiracy theory here. I think if you look at cunanan clearly. There's an effort to kind of turbo charge. A conspiracy theory and shaping the minds of unwitting people consuming that information. And that's why. I do think this is the kind of thing that requires a policy response just sitting back and hoping that facebook solves us because they've got a pr problem is clearly not sufficient so some republicans aren't quite ready to call for a military coup fucking reina's. They're trying to win the next election the old fashioned way by making it harder for democrats to vote that's happening in texas where the republicans voter suppression legislation was temporarily stopped this week when democrats in the state house walked out of the chamber which denied republicans. A corum and prevented a vote on the bill governor greg. Abbott responded by threatening to cut the entire legislatures funding and he said that will call a special session to revive the bill but democrat said that they hope. The episode serves as a wake-up call to their colleagues in washington to pass the four. The people act. Here's what state representative trey martinez fischer had to say to joe. Manchin down here in texas. We'd say when times get tough. It's time to cowboy up in so with all due respect that s senator mansion please cowboy up. President biden also had a message for both mansion and kirstin cinema during his remarks to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the tulsa massacre. Though his dig was a bit more subtle. I hear all the folks on tv saying why didn't biden get this done. Well because biden has a majority of effectively four votes in the house and i and the senate with two members of the senate who vote more republican for us so the president also said that he's putting vice president kamala harris in charge of voting rights. And that he'll quote fight like heck to ensure the passage of the for the people. Act a question. Dan will any of this. Make a difference of joe manchin kirstin cinema or any of the other Filibuster loving democratic senators. Who are hiding behind joe manchin and carson cinema. Say their names. john. I don't know the changes with every story. Jeanne shaheen upset and john testers not sure then the two democratic senators from delaware. That you're eventually gonna run against their out there. We're not sure about both of them. Run against both inside and run against. He's gonna take both seats. Because that's just how much i love the senate and where and delaware i do a lump delaware off. We don't know right. I was very pleased to hear biden. Talk about this and say he's gonna fight like heck for it i was. I'm glad that he has put comma harris in charge. It's we know from our time there that it's always better when there was one person in charge of a big project because vice president biden. Did this a bunch rama whether it was on gun safety after newtown the recovery act iraq policy In first term because they can bring to bear the entire office on this project and it becomes a top priority which sometimes it's hard in the day-to-day crisis management that the president must deal with so. That's very good. I don't know whether it's going to make a difference. It may just be that. Joe manchin curzon cinema and the unnamed others would prefer to preserve the filibuster than save democracy and that nothing will change their mind. But we don't know that and that is why we were. We're on the clock. now we have Senator schumer said they're going to bring up the for. The people act as one in june. And i think all of us particularly joe biden. Kamala harris chuck schumer to make it as uncomfortable as fucking possible for the people who may stand in the way of this right like if you your decision is that the filibuster is so important as curzon cinema. So annoyingly said standing in texas the Basically ground zero for democracy. Rigging right now said extol the virtues filibuster if they think that is so important than they should they should feel pain. That political pain for doing that right. It should be uncomfortable when they go home to their their states and the district should be comfortable when they turn on their tv to all the other democratic senators out there. It should be uncomfortable in the lunch line at the senate. You see joe. Manchin cinema talk to him about this. Put pressure on it because i do think that this is one of those times in history that people will remember for decades when they look back on this time. I don't as i wish people thought it was the american rescue plan. I think maybe they'll think it's information to me. But i think it'll be what what we did. At this moment to protect our democracy because now biden talks about how he wants to be like an fdr style president whereas you we have this crisis..

"Does not just republicans that have been roadblocks to progressive priorities in this bill but moderates in their own party. It could depend on this. Senator democrat joe manchin of west virginia now joe mansion. He is at the center of attention on this. So what does that was his objection to the same as what was holding the bill up specifically the joe manchin wanted true let was to mansions position seems to be that bipartisanship is a choir meant for his vote. The first and the most innovative one for him is he wants it to see more modern. Okay we've got to try to find some consensus. Why can't we work with republicans on this less make. It seem more of moderate centrist centrist democrat joe mansion insisted on narrowing some provisions to win his vote and what this crystallizes is the power. That west. virginia. Senator joe manchin has over this process and i think less important both what was the concern was the size of the unemployment benefit. He wanted his unemployment benefits down from four hundred to three hundred. How much was it going to be. How long was it gonna last. How this all ends is still very much up for debate. But the reality is democrats cannot pass this bill without senator joe manchin and he made this painful for senate democrats and made them sweat and greatest. Some real drama democrats have the votes including mansion to get this through the friday before the weekend when the bill cleared. The senate was very stressful. Day for chuck schumer and joe biden. Because they had to get him on the phone you know. Try to sort of get him to a place where he could get to. Yes on the final version of the bill to and one of the most powerful people in washington. Dc right now and they trim the unemployment benefit in the final version of the bill not enormously but they did the placate him and now mold add another four hundred dollars per person but three hundred as in past episodes when the role was called he took the democratic line and he voted for the bill. It took longer than expected but democrats did what they set out to do and they did it without a single republican vote. And if it wasn't for his vote there would not have been any one point nine trillion dollars. Wwl spell mentioned seems to be very much enjoying his role as basically a one man senate and here's wants to ask about the hell episode. I think the unemployment benefit issue was something that he seized upon largely with the idea of making the bill seem more moderate and see why they had negotiated something with the republicans. I'm not sure that it was a personal issue for him but it was something that he saw as a way to make this seemingly negotiated more. Bipartisan bill So in some ways he wakes up in the morning and says i'm worried that piece of legislation stimulus for example is too partisan or looks to partisan and so he then will find potentially something to seize on to try to make a little less partisan. That's the approach. I can bet that actors him. I think you know other senators. They'd probably echo a version of that in a lot of cases the substance of these bills. He's not super you know connected to. It's more just the appearance of the bills. Is it possible that bipartisanship to mansion is ultimately a kind of political cover. And what it really means. Is i need to buck my party. A bunch of the time to not seem liberal. And i need to make sure. My positions once in a while drift towards the republican side given the political makeup of my stayed and mansion calls this recurring tactic of his bipartisanship which sounds high minded rather than tactical. But it really is tactical. I think it's both a and there's no question that he recognizes the political benefit in a conservative state of being seen. Somebody's more willing to buck his party line. I think it's also true to who he is. He also is somebody who is more of a political centrist and has been for a long time. So how is that dynamic playing out right now with the infrastructure bill this joe manchin effect on this hugely important piece of legislation to president biden. Well this is part of the reason why you're seeing biden meet with republicans trying to reach a bipartisan negotiated bill. Because he's got to convince joe manchin that he made an effort he's gotta get caught frying. I love that phrase. Get caught trying to be bipartisan. Even if the republican votes may not actually be there exactly because mansion wants to see the effort made he wants to see every attempt to craft ours bill so the fact that these negotiations are even happening right now the fact that republicans from the senate are sitting with president biden and their democratic counterparts and debating. This and trying to reach a deal even if there's not much of a chance of republicans actually voting for this bill. That tajo mansion is the thing. That's exactly what robert byrd totaled. Him needs to happen. So is that enough for mansion. What he's seen so far. Well i'd be hit. He would like to see it. Reach consensus obviously. But yes and this. By the way kind of where. He differs with bert bird and a lot of ways was protector of the senate. But i also wanted to take care of west virginia. A lot of roads out there with uncle sam's dollars at he did that with mansion. It's not like biden. Could call him up and say joe if we do five more million dollars for west virginia broadband or bridges and roads cannot get yes if it was that easy. They wouldn't the sweat so much mansion is not going to be somebody who's just easily ball off with like more work for the state this was the frustration is that that kind of opposition is a little bit more operational for negotiators right. The joe manchin effect in many ways feels like profound inefficiency a lot of singing and dancing and theatre. That may result did nothing but a lot of wasted time. Potentially he would say his mental robert byrd was site. That's the nature of the senate. That's how it works jonathan. This is all helping me understand. Why senator joe manchin would be reluctant to do something else. That many of his democratic colleagues are demanding that the party do which is support ending the filibuster rule which requires sixty votes to get anything done in the senate and move to a system where a simple majority would carry the day and based on our conversation. It's clear that doing that would violate the traditions of the senate to someone like mansion. It would mean one party doesn't even have to bother to reach out to the other side and it would therefore hasten this trend towards partisanship that mansion lows. Is that how he sees it that he wants to senator. Remain the sad. At least it is is what it's supposed to be which is a slower in yes more inefficient body compared to the house. That demands bipartisan compromise. In negotiation now allow democrats believed that. Basically phillip austin has become simply a stalling tactic. Now and away this torpedo. The majority party's actual agenda rather been a device for compromise managing holdout. He is trying to use the filibuster. Is it can work from austria bipartisanship in. We'll see how that goes on the infrastructure. Bill will see if they can get it. The old cross party lines but in the meantime because mansion will not relent on the filibuster in because a handful of his colleagues in the senate democratic race won't relent a number bills that have passed. The house have been held up right. Whether is on issues. Like gone or labor rights because of the filibuster a lot about legislation.

"Fathers created the senate in this fashion the phrase he used was basically so the big guy didn't beat up. The little guy in varies talking about the majority in the senate respecting the rights of minority. Or he'll who told me earlier told him. Yeah it's hard but it's supposed to be hard and the reason that supposed to be hard as the crowds. The two parties towards bipartisanship so mansion learns of the senate from burbs perspective of the senate that is his his grounding in this chamber and bird passes away in two twenty ten and then when there's a special election for the bird seat mansion himself runs for the scene and he comes to washington fully having internalize what he has learned from bird who was widely seen as the protector of senate traditions. So jonathan joe manchin arrives in the us senate from day one carrying several seemingly very important pieces of identity. He is a catholic democrat jfk. He's representing a very culturally conservative state. And he's taking a seed from his mentor. Who has just schooled him about the importance of bipartisanship and civility and reaching across the aisle. But i'm aware that at the time he's coming to the senate the senate is changing right. It's starting to become less like the senate that bird spoke about and worked in. It's becoming more partisan a place where things are just absolutely happening in party. Line partisan ways constantly. Yes he is coming to. The senate is increasingly reflecting the senate up today. Not the senate of birds era. In fact he comes in right at a sort of inflection. Point and twenty ten where you're seeing a lot of the old guard senators retire or die so this is a moment world lots of these science of the senate who were themselves dog owed to the old ways of the senate bipartisanship at times even not campaigning against some of their colleagues of because they were friends even though they the other party this period is coming to an end and manchin is entering a very different much. More ideologically charged chamber twenty twelve twenty fourteen. Twenty sixteen you every two year. The senate is getting much more purified more more polarized your moderate to conservative democrats in large part because the south is becoming much more heavily republican in a way that it was not when he arrived. So you know by the time that we're now getting to the trump era of mansion is increasingly on out wire in this more polarized body to joe. Manchin quickly becomes a political anachronism in yes. He is oftentimes. Hardy of one has votes. Or anything but predictable. We'll be right back. Nobody builds five g like horizon builds. Five g no one else built this bold because no one else thought this big and the more you do with five g the moore building. It right matters the more. Your network matters the more verizon engineers going the extra mile matters. It's verizon versus verizon.

Networks results may vary award is not endorsement. If you find yourself bewildered by this moment where there's so much reason for despair and so much recent to hope all at the same time. Let me say a hear you. I miss her client from new york times opinion host of the show and for me the best way to beat back that the wilder feeling is to talk it out with the people who have ideas and frameworks for making sense of it from my days of the washington post to my time is editor in chief at box and now as an opinion columnist at the new york times. I've tried to ask the questions that matter to the people at the heart of those matters like how do we address climate change if the political system fails to act has the logic of markets infiltrated too many aspects of our allies. What do psychedelics teach us about consciousness. And what a sifi understand about our president that we miss. This is the as ripon show. And there's going to be plenty to talk about. You can find new episodes every tuesday and friday. Wherever you get your podcasts jovan. Mansions unique brand of west. Virginia democratic politics is unpredictable. What what do you mean by that. Well of his boats are along party lines. There's no question but he has shown willingness to compromise in be quite unpredictable about what he will not support so for example on a number of issues he tends to be more supportive of the conservative line on cultural issues whether that's opposing abortion rights generally supporting the coal industry which is key to his state's largest or of gun rights although with some willingness to compromise course he memorably voted to confirm justice breyer kavanagh which angered a lot of democrats. And you know i think. Just generally his desire for bipartisanship an almost fixation on bipartisanship and consensus has angered a democratic party that is just not as invested in that process as he is because what they would say is. We don't have interlocutors have good faith counterparts who want the same goals that we won or not good negotiators in the wake of mansion. Believe so he can cause great frustration to his party on cross end on policy but what republicans will tell you oftentimes rolling their eyes when they hear the critique mansion from the leftist yet mansions a great but he's not there when you need them for them right and some of the signal legislative measures come before the senate reason you mansion has taken the party line you look the to. Perhaps seminal shoes legislatively. In the trump era the tax cuts twenty seventeen and the attempt to repeal the affordable care. Act also twenty seventy in both cases mansion side critically with democrats so john i think that brings us up to now into mansion starting to play this crucial some would say confounding maker break role in the senate for a democratic president and it feels like the first time that happened was during prison pines attempt to pass a major stimulus bill right and this is where you really see me. Engine flexing muscles.

"One of the members of congress who knows a thing or two about The budget and spending and taxation has to be the ranking member of the ways and means committee that would be congressman. Kevin brady from texas. He joins me by phone congressman. How are you. Hey good morning. Eric how are you. Thanks for having me on the show. Oh absolutely i am so glad to have you here and particularly in light of all these. These comments in complaints among democrats who i by the way before i get. I want to gauge your reaction to this washington post story today that is almost a lament that now suddenly democrats find themselves with just a two seat majority in the house in large part because of the biden appointments. And and the unfortunate death of alcee hastings they. They don't know what to do with themselves all of a sudden well. I wish they'd been thinking about that. Earlier as they were rushing through some of the most I think extreme socialist agenda legislation. i've ever seen In congress they really you know at this point in a presidency most are reaching out across the aisle on issues. Like covid were infrastructure. You know these guys are going it alone and As you've pointed out thanks to for doing this but you point out the covert bill had little to do with covert the infrastructure. Bill has little to do with infrastructure yet. Really doesn't and now this this Salt deduction the state and local tax issue. It looks like the they can't find common ground among the democrats on what to do with it and it seems like for years having portrayed you guys on the republican side is the party of the rich. Suddenly you've got the democrats wanting to bigger. Give a big deduction to rich. People in new york is unbelievable. Here we are trying battling our way out of the pandemic in the economy still locked down by some governors and mayors a lot of people struggling in democrats are insisting on a huge tax breaks for millionaires. Half of this salt cap repeal will go to millionaire households in predominantly high tax states. It is a big tax break for both president biden and vice president harris and Even the progressive groups are saying you know to their democratic. This is obnoxious to be giving tax breaks. You know at any point to the wealthy much less As we're trying to recover of course we noticed in new york Cuomo is trying to raise taxes yet again. And he's counting on salt cap to cover up just his brutal level of taxation look new york these the these really are tremendous states but are so brutally taxed for families and the workers..

Have been fully vaccinated and now the state health department has issued a new order easy restrictions of the state and the governor. Say there will be no more lockdown. At the state of michigan. It has everything to do with her election. And also the fact that states that have it locked down are doing better. But i gotta tell you this gets lost in the yelling in the conversation but the reality is this there is clearly clearly.

"Gun. Violence takes lives in leaves a lasting legacy of trauma in communities every single day in this country even when it is not on the nightly news in fact cities across the country are in the midst of a historic spike in homicides violence that disproportionately impacts black and brown americans. The president is committed to taking action to reduce all forms of gun. Violence community violence. Mass shootings domestic violence and suicide by firearm. President biden is reiterating his call for congress to pass legislation to reduce gun violence last month. A bipartisan coalition. The house passed two bills to close loopholes to the gun. Background check system. Congress should close. Those loopholes go further including by closing boyfriend in stalking loopholes that currently allow people found by the courts to be abusers to process firearms banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Repealing gun manufacturers immunity from liability and investing in evidence based community violence interventions. Congress should also pass an appropriate national red flag law as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass red flag laws of their own but this administration will not wait for congress to act to take its own steps fully within the administration's authority and the second amendment to save lives today the administration announcing the six initial actions are y'all ready for the bold actions of the bite metairie. These are the bold things that the biden administration is going to do to stop gun could be guns in this country. This is the gun control of action of the bite. I'm sorry the biden harris administration. The justice department within thirty days will issue a proposed rule to help. Stop the proliferation of ghost. Guns criminals apparently bioline kits that contain almost all the components and directions were finishing their gun with as little as thirty minutes. And they're using those guns to commit crimes and then they can be traced because they don't have a serial number so they're cracking down on ghost guns number two. The justice department within sixty days will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turds pistol into a short barrel rifle. Subject to the requirements of the national firearms act the alleged shooter in the boulder tragedy. Last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm. Brace which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable so they wanna figure out a way to get rid of that kind of like a donald trump wanted to ban bump stocks.

"So that's what they did. They were able to get rid of the individual mandate in obamacare because the pseudo-parliamentary ruled it did not actually change public policy and actually save some money so they were able to get it done. Well the have hit on the democrats. It only strategy the reconciliation. Bill actually applies to fiscal years. So we're currently in the twenty twenty. One fiscal year in an october will be the twenty twenty two fiscal year so they could pass a budget reconciliation package now and they can pass a budget reconciliation package at the end of the year. Both in one year but they're in separate fiscal year so they get to well. Chuck schumer claims that he got the senate parliamentarian to agree that they could have a third bite at reconciliation. Something heretofore unknown summoned up out of the rules. The senate parliamentarian supposedly said they could do it. Essentially what they will do is they will pass a change in the budget that you've got to pass a budget every year. The budget is not actually the budget. The budget that has passed it's the budget resolution and it says These branches of government. They're going to get this much money and then they actually passed the appropriations bills to give them that much money. What they want to do is change. The budget resolution previously passed and claim. Well since we've substantially changed the budget resolution previously passed. We now get to do another. Reconciliation package chuck schumer said. The senate parliamentarian agreed but now chuck schumer and the democrats are saying. Actually maybe not. According to chuck schumer spokesperson the parliamentarian had advised that democrats could revise the complex budget. Maneuver that was used to pass. Biden's one point nine trillion dollar krona virus relief package and unlock a second opportunity at clearing major legislation without republican votes. Still even a schumer's. Aides touted the ruling as an important step forward in giving democrats a powerful extra pathway to avert a filibuster they knowledge some parameters need to be worked out the befuddle meant that still surrounds. The parliamentarians opinion has major consequences. The decision could give democrats at least three more opportunities to steer bills passed republican opposition before the midterm elections without trying to access the filibuster but really carry certain constraints. Enduring the grueling budget process. Could be much less appetizing. Democrats aren't excited about turbo charging it senate republican age with firsthand knowledge of the parliamentary decision. Said it isn't clear what legislative priorities democrats could pass with a possible exercises reconciliation or even whether the ruling would limit democrats use of their second tipped the parliamentarians opinion also doesn't specify whether such action is even allowable this fiscal year or whether eighty party would have the freedom to unlock unlimited opportunities to use. Reconciliation democratic lawmaker observed that the party can put as much into reconciliation as we can into two questioning the practical advantage of trying to exercise power. That no one really understands. They got problems and now the democrats say actually The big win. We got may not be as big as we thought it was. Well all of that is now premium. Did by the president of the united states. Joe manchin of west virginia eyesight again. I site again his op. Ed in the washington post unfortunately our leaders in the senate failed to recognize what goes around comes around. We should all be alarmed at how the budget reconciliation process is being used by both parties to stifle debate. That pretty much kills it. In fact he says if the filibuster is eliminated or budget reconciliation becomes the norm. A new and dangerous precedent will be set..
