Why McConnell Helped Schumer Increase Debt Limit
"Jake. It's here. i was about to slander. You betcha they wrote punchbowl news last night and took the day off. 'cause the feds rob welcome back by now no i. My phone was on silence. I apologize not problem. Date chairman of punchbowl. Get your punchbowl news at punchbowl news dot com check last hour. I played chuck schumer speech. You wrote your assessment of the binding legislative agenda. Did you take into account the impact of the shimmer speech which brosseau told maria barham yesterday has deeply soured the republican caucus. I mean to the point. They don't want to talk to the guy. yeah. I actually don't. They didn't talk much to anyway. I don't find that big. I don't find it to be this positive. I've been through a lot of michael's where speeches what we're supposed to ruin relationships. The fact is the reality is. There's not much cooperation that we anticipate anyway. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong on the democratic side. I think that because mcconnell blinked and this lasts debt limit fight he makes it less likely appoint again And i think that i just i. I don't think the speeches what did it. I mean it's not like we were in a golden era for cooperation. What did you make joe mansion face in his hands and then leaving. We reported at the time that he He used next live instead. It was. I read batting. Yeah i can't remember exactly what it was I think listen. I think i am the cynic here is you know hugh i think. Being against schumer is beneficial for him. But i do think. Joe manchin owns chuck schumer in a way In the sense that he can't get anything done. Schumer can't without joe mansion so You know what mansion said In in many respects was right that if you want to have more progressive agenda you don't have to worry about joe manchin so like progressives to the senate you know and i think that's the reality of it now. Can i explain to you. My theory of what happened last week. I think mitch mcconnell one. Even though people think he lost. I think he intended people think he lost so that he could win. In december he could not allow the debt crisis right now so he waited and waited and waited extended it till december and he will allow it in december. Couldn't allow it now. It might have the reconciliation going to a higher number now. The democrats have to work out their reconciliation and if they do they're going to have passed trillions of dollars in spending and they're gonna have to borrow for it to reconciliation to get your take ship sherman. I don't think that yeah i mean. Listen i i think that he. I don't think that he won or lost. I think this was kind of a stupid fight with an. It's now it was a stupid deal. That really screws over everyone involved. I mean i agree with you. He couldn't have a he could not afford to have a default And he did. In the only the i guess i would say. He won. Because schumer's main argument against reconciliation and lifting with reconciliation was that he didn't have time that was schumer's made argument yao He can't make that argument. So i i and i hear that I do hear that. There's a lot of anger in the republican conference. Though i mean. We can't underestimate that On what mcconnell. There's no movement to get rid of them that silliness that is coming from whatever wherever trump. We're getting that from. Oh you mean getting rid of mcconnell not not a not a chance
No, Harassing a Woman Going to the Bathroom Is Not Activism
"Wanna high profile. People have security wonder if the united states senators should get some kind of personal protection as they're flying or trying to teach a classroom and go to the bathroom. Kirstin cinema and joe mansion are being subjected to the wrath of the so-called activists. These aren't activists harassing a single woman. Who's trying to go to the bathroom. That's not activism and contrary to joe biden's assertion. It's not part of the process. And i hope that kirstin cinema has some resolve and doesn't let this Angry mob influence her opposition to this reckless insane. Three point five trillion dollar spending disaster.

The progressives thing the same thing the progressives we got about a decade left or else in so they compromise with themselves down from six trillion dollars to five three two three trillion dollars and here comes joe mansion and he says new p- one point five or else one point five or else and now they're going to have to pick what is really important to them. What's really important to the progressives. Is it expanding the social safety welfare net or is it stopping the world from burning pick and by the way by the way. Shoot if they pick climate change.

Kyrsten Sinema Doesn't Play by Anyone's Rules
"Don't talk much about kirstin. Cinema axioms did a big profile about her about how she's you know kind of gone rogue or whatever you wanna call it. The intervention her political allies according to axios. Have some free advice for anyone. Trying to bully cureton cinema. The wine drinking triathlete she doesn't play by washington's rules and she's prepared to walk away or so says access for all her flash. Kirsten cinema unlike fellow. Hold out joe. Manchin rarely telegraphs her precise intentions leaving political adversaries guessing about her ultimate goals. Progressives can be forgiven for for presuming that the forty-five-year-old cinema would share their woke politics. They've been befuddled and increasingly enraged when she behaves more like the late republican senator john mccain another arizonan who didn't mind challenging partha party orthodoxies at her core actually says kerstin cinema is something of a fiscal conservative. She's unconventional she's known to rise between four and five. Am to train for her next race. And while joe mansion has been intensely focused on price the price tag of spending setting his limit at one point five trillion cinema has signaled. She's more concerned with the tax side of the equation including who pays them listen. I don't care what they do as long as all crashes and burns and they lose the agenda

"Still am not hold out. Hope the joe mansion and cureton cinema are gonna stand tall. Don't forget what mansion did he betrayed the belief that he would hold against the lunacy voter in voter rights act. You know the the bill that nationalized our elections which waves more elections shenanigans and stupid mail in ballots and all these covert era protections and changes that the democrats want to be permanent. Forget forget voter. Id you just mail in a bunch of ballots from your living room. That should do the trick right dams so i'll never forgive joe mansion for betraying his resistance to the to the stupid of voter rights act.

Mansion has known all along what his bottom line was now. What about christian cinema you know. It's not just joe mansion now. The the the issue here is everyone blues. Kristen cinema will actually go along with a lot of the social stuff for the democrats but she will not go along with major corporate tax increases. She could be placated by what you'll mentioned has done as i said. Yesterday this is about. Joe manchin being all in for joe mansion. He's not trying to help republicans. He's not a republican.

Manchin and Sinema Exasperate House Democrats, But Can They Be Trusted?
"Start today with a little philosophy. I'm i'm i'm in a little bit of a cynical mood. I'm seeing everybody all excited about joe mansion and kirsten cinema. And i just want to warn you. Don't trust them. Don't trust them. Don't trust them. joe manchin lettuce down before he promises that he's gonna be the fly in the ointment of this socialist disaster that the democrats are going to unleash and i just think it's all bluff right now all this infighting i just don't believe a. I'm sorry i wanna believe it. I want to believe in him. I want to believe that there is a at least one. Shane democrat left. But i just don't see it. I want to believe that. Kirstin cinema and joe mansion will hold true to what they're saying that they cannot possibly support an alleged infrastructure bill that is connected to a socialism package that contains all kinds of garbage. That has nothing to do with infrastructure. Joe manchin says he realizes this is gonna essentially bankrupt the country. I just don't believe him

"That's why i think mansion is holding the see. I don't really believe mansion cares about the costs as much certainly cares about the cost. He is worried about inflation but mansion cares about mansion mansion does. What's good for joe manchin. Yes guinea body. Listen it republican democrat and their answer. Is that joe. Manchin has in this for joe manchin and if it makes joe mansion look good. He gets reelected. What makes joe manchin. Look good. Well screwing the progressives. Because he's the senator from west virginia but to in a coal mining natural gas state where his son runs one of the largest natural gas companies in america. That joe manchin started being able to write the regulations that oversee coal and natural gas as part of the green new deal matter. More to joe manchin than anything. It's not a conflict of interest. Joe manchin the company for his son does certainly gets money from but it's not really a conflict of interest. Joe mansion wants to help. Joe manchin and joe manchin was telling joe manchin not by enriching. Joanna that's what alexander cousin says thinks. Aoc is accusing. Joe manchin a beat in the pocket of the energy industry. Yeah he certainly gets money from but he's not there to write regulations to joe mansion. That's progressive pipedream. No no no. Joe mansion benefits by protecting the coal miners natural gas producers of west virginia which gets him reelected and it gives bernie sanders the middle finger as longest climate change and the green. New deal is part of reconciliation. It's part of the budget. It goes to bernie sanders the moment. It stripped out of reconciliation. Not only. Does it lower the whole package cost price tag. But then it has to go to joe mansion in hopes joe manchin. That's why i think. Reconciliation ultimately passes but it scaled back one of the core components. That's taken out will be all the green stuff because that's where most of the costs are anyway and then joe. Manchin is empowered. Now what are the other hangups. Kristen cinema christian cinema does it like the corporate tax increases. She thinks that hurts the economy. You get rid of the green new deal components you get rid of a lot of the taxes that would be applied to corporations to cover the cost of that sort of stuff. She could get reconciliation. Pass so i think. A scaled back version reconciliation with the debt ceiling increase passes. I think the bipartisan infrastructure. Deal passes i just think it takes longer. They're not gonna get republican. Help all the debt ceiling so they have to put it reconciliation and if they have to put reconciliation to pass it that means. Reconciliation must pass by october eighteenth. Therefore reconciliation is going to pass so that they can't raise the ditsy lead and if reconciliation passes they will pass the bipartisan infrastructure plan. That's how i see this all shape out. i just. It makes sense to me that that's the way it works. Because you're all about empowering joe manchin if you're joe manchin in for joe manchin to be empowered. He's got a show the democrats he's on the team but to help joe manchin. He's got to be on the team without cost himself anything and that is he gets to preside over the climate change stuff the progressives or being played a you know what i kinda think. They know. they're getting played. That's why alexandra qazi cortez has been coming out. Attacking joe manchin regularly. She hasn't really said anything about christian. Cinema other democrats in the house are attacking kristen cinema. But she's attacking joe mansion bernie sanders is now attacking joe manchin and it all has to do with the green new deal.
Pelosi, Democrats Wrestle Over Biden Agenda
"Morning. Glory america. Let's not talk about numbers. Let's talk about values because boy. It's going to be quite the debate jake. Sherman joins me hugh hewitt inside the beltway punchbowl news reporting on the intricacies of the dilemma facing nancy. Pelosi and chuck schumer. How much of other people's money spending who to give it to good morning. Jake how are ya you good. How about that line. Let's not talk about dollars. Let's talk about values. That's a great way to avoid talking about the problems in her caucus. Well you know. I'll i'll say this in defensive for. I'm not defending. But just the actually let me provide some context. We know the top the top the ceiling here which is three and a half trillion. What she's saying is let's have a discussion not again. I'm not defending or to try to put some context around this She's saying let's have a discussion on the policies and then we'll see in in what window that will That will fall fair enough. that's but i mean. listen. I think the problem is is that pelosi's not in the driver's seat here completely. She's in the driver's seat to a large degree but in the copilot's seat is is joe mansion and cinema and the democratic moderates House democratic moderate agreeing to three and a half trillion dollar bills. So you need to talk about the top wide. 'cause topline is what matters some people you know. And she says it's all paid for yes. It is paid for by tax increases On a whole host of of of individuals and and things of that nature But she can't decide individually to not talk about the numbers that's something that democrats have to agree on. I mean they don't have enough. They need a top line. Number people are curious what that's going to be because he has you know if your people are going to go home and campaign in two thousand twenty two republicans are and they're going to say they spent three half trillion dollars and or they spent doing out whenever it ends up being so people are curious right police. What that number will be

"But you only can only lose three members in the house and you can't lose any members of the senate. You can't operate like that. And this is actually the problem that democrats face right now getting anything. Done the run up to the mid terms you have a real split among the democrats between the moderates and the progressives. They're all liberal summer just so much more liberal than others and they don't wanna compromise with each other and when you are in a majority coalition and you don't wanna compromise with each other it makes governance impossible on top of that. The democrats are doing something you can't afford to do. Your margins are so slim in the past the way congress worked is how a bill becomes a law. You know the old school house rock song. I'm just a bill you go to congress and wants to meet you and then you go to a committee and the committee marks you up. Each member gets to contribute or take away. They can propose amendments when the committee process has done. It goes to the floor. It's voted on. It goes to the other house if they're changes after the changes go back to the other house. Both sides have to pass it identical bill. Then it goes to the president the way democrats and republicans in the majority of operated in the last decade or so is the leadership writes the bill or if they're the party of the president the president writes the bill and then they give it a cursory review in committee. They rushed to the floor and they try to pass it with their own votes. They leave out the other side the way the congress is supposed to work is someone submits a bill. It goes to committee and there's a markup session and the republicans of the democrats get to offer amendments they get to improve legislation. They get to work with each other. Collaboratively leaves committee sometimes. It's it's heavy handed. The majority imposes there a will. Sometimes they realized the minority has a valid argument. But they come to a compromise. They passed it. It goes to the other house of congress it goes through the same process it refines. The legislation ended. In fact i would argue. The democrats would be far more successful if they tried that. Now it's called regular order. You hear members of congress talk about regular order all the time where you just let the committee process take the legislation and work it up i would submit to you that if the democrats and republicans in the senate sat down and decided to hammer out a reconciliation bill that address the concerns of each side and each side had to compromise and give up some of their sacred cows. You could probably get this. Legislation passed but the problem is in the house. The progressives don't wanna support any of the stuff and in the senate bernie sanders is in charge of the budget. Committee and bernie. Sanders is so far left. He can't allow the republicans to do anything. This is why by the way. The democrats are freaking out about joe. Manchin it's not that. Joe mansion is an obstacle to the reconciliation legislation. No no no no. No they're concerned about job. Joe manchin are far bigger than the budget. Reconciliation process you see. Joe mansion is the ranking member and chairman for the democrats on the energy committee joe mansion gets to write the climate change legislation and the democrats have become a religion of climate change..
Manchin Won't Support $3.5T Reconciliation Package
"This week we've got the reconciliation process proceeding in congress. And it's not going well so far for the democrats. Joe mansion is pretty much laid down the gauntlet. He's not gonna go along with the three point five trillion dollar package at the white house and house. Democrats and senate democratic leaders want. He's said the could go along with something like one point five trillion which is according to mine a loss fifty seven percent. I'm going to break in here often. You your characterization of things not going well for democrats. It's not going well by the standards of the political media that if if democrat. I don't play the second second you're talking about. But you're talking about the reconciliation process. Not going well. So let's stick to the process and you're using a standard that they don't get the three point five trillion dollars. It'll be victory for the republicans to defeat for the democrats. The negotiations really are just starting in earnest and if mansion has already saying he could support up to one point five trillion. Then it's possible. I would say. Probably even likely that he'll end up somewhere between two trillion and two point five trillion way short of the three point five trillion but nevertheless a historic spending

"It's christmas every single week for you here as a joe mansion watcher we got the big ethic wall street journal which we discussed last week. Now we gotta discuss joe manchin yet again because we have this epic leak about what he's been telling people at the white house. Which is that. He's going to support about a trillion. Maybe you can get them up to one point five trillion and the reconciliation bill. But he's not going near three point five trillion dollars deal with it squad deal with bernie deal with elizabeth warren or hope. This is true. The real numbers should closed zero fact. We should be cutting not adding but if this is true. This i suppose is good news. If one considers the alternative one way of looking at this could be that mansion wants to pay for everything spent. he's already signaled. Willingness to increase taxes his desired tax increases smaller in scale than those designed by the rest of his party but they are not invisible and if he is to square his position with what he wrote in the wall street journal that is. This is not the time to borrow money et cetera. Then he could do that by saying okay. I'm going to sign onto a trillion dollars of tax increases and trillion dollars of spending all. Maybe at in a bit of dynamic scoring nonsense a few games around the edges and make that slightly higher if he is not doing that then he will. Essentially lied in his wall street journal op-ed because the conditions he laid out will not have disappeared. Come reconciliation time. I think aside from the question of what lies in the joe mansion tea-leaves leaves. We ought to hope that mansion is willing to sign on to spending that will be gone and forgotten rather than to some of the provisions within benny sound. This planet is bernie sanders plan would essentially create new entitlements. Now i've said many times. Now that i would honestly prefer the democrats took three and a half trillion dollars and burned it. Then i would that. They created new entitlements. First off it would be deflationary second. It would prevent us from adding more and more onto a hook that is straining under the weight. We are not in a position to expand entitlements ten years ago. We all acknowledge that we were not in a position to expand entitlements and in fact members of both parties had serious conversations that went noah last about what we were going to reform entitlements and now somehow and this is the republicans as well as democrats fold. We've got to the point of which were talking about. Expanding medicare expanding social security lowering the eligibility age. Isn't that on top of that. If any saunders gets his way adding in entitlements to college adding dental and vision cat medicare adding in child support child calf. I should say this is madness. So if joe manchin is going to cut is absolutely preposterous spending plan down to still preposterous one trillion. Dollars or more remember. That's bigger than obamacare. Then he should take care to do so by stripping out all of the mechanisms that would essentially guarantee more spending of money we don't have in perpetuity and focus on what he said in his op. Ed he wanted which is targeted spending on concrete items that we need so md. The most helpful scenario here is that mansion one he. He is actually serious about everything. He's saying that that would be good. But even more hopeful would be that the his wanting to pause his insistence on one or one point five upsets the squad and house. They vote down. The bipartisan infrastructure. Bill because they want leverage over mansion when mentioned has leverage over them and you get kind of a mexican stand-off and somehow or other both of these bills. The bipartisan have structure. Bill and reconciliation. Go down. I wouldn't be hopeful. I'm that hopeful. But it's possibility. Can i still think that the democratic caucus and even joe manchin want something to pass But mansion is an awkward position. Wear the more.

"The conversation you guys want to get rid of joe manchin. Yeah me too. So let's talk to a guy who's trying to make that actually happen. Stephen smith is the co chair of west. Virginia can't wait. He's a former west. Virginia gubernatorial candidate. And he's now helping to push replace joe mansion dot com steven. Welcome back to the program so good to see you man. Thanks for having me on. Of course so stephen here. You don't have to explain why we want to get rid of joe mansion. Everybody already agrees. Okay so the question is how so help me understand how replace joe manchin dot com is going to get him out of office. Yeah it's a great question right because the real problem here is we have to replace a machine not one man that behind joe manchin are those corporate lawyers and financiers the big pharmaceutical companies. And so we don't pretend that one politician is gonna come around and save us from joe manchin one other politician what you do replace. Joe manchin dot com as you log on. We hope you'll make a donation but that donation isn't gonna go to one race in three years. It's going to go to the long term infrastructure building building a machine of volunteer firefighters and nurses and educators of wage workers throughout west virginia. That can take on the machine. That's been putting us down the other thing you can do. It replaced joe manchin. Dot com is nominate. Someone you want to see run or nominate yourself to run that as you know. West virginia can't wait is a movement to win a people's government in west virginia. And so if you're a working class person that wants to get involved in your community in your workplace or if you wanna put your own name on the ballot. We're here to help and this is it. This is what it's going to take. There's no silver bullet. Mansion himself is a symptom not the disease and we have to get at the disease. So i remember talking to about west. Virginia can't wait. And i thought that it was actually really similar to the idea that we had which democrats at the national level which is the only way to beat him. Machine is with another machine and that you can't do one person at a time. It's like charging against the cavalry was just one person. I know jon snow did did it. But even he didn't do it he actually had backup coming support eventually and that's why they won a in fact he had two rounds of backup coming sport him and so i love the idea overall. But let's talk mechanic's a little bit more because if there's one thing the american people love it's mechanics. So how would it actually let me back up because in order to understand how you're going to do in the future you kind of have to know how you did in the past so. I know you ran for governor. You lost narrowly in the primary but many other candidates from your slate did win so.
"joe mansion" Discussed on Boston Public Radio Podcast
"Crow era that rightly say have been used to you know stall progress on giant civil and voting rights. And you know important issues in the country over the years. They're right when when you beat up the filibuster about those things. But i'm i'm really actually interested to hear how the president makes the case today because what most people believe is that you know you can criticize these states that we're republicans. Seventeen now texas would be number eighteen. I think rolling back voting rights Democrats can't do anything about that. Because they're republican governors and republican legislators. Can the democrats used this as an issue to mobilize their voters and essentially you know Have the republicans suffer in a midterm election where history says republicans will gain Can you prove your point that way. I think that's where this is headed. Can the democrats have a mobilization campaign Teach people the new rules. Make sure they come out to vote. Because i just forgive me. I don't mean to sound like a pessimist. But i don't see i don't have any great hope for any federal action. Okay so one last question about it. Because i'm sure you're sick of them a on the same topic. Let's assume chuck schumer puts up for a vote. Not the voting rights. Bill that passed the house. Further people thing But the joe mansion version Which i think as a voter. Id requirement or some such thing and the joe manchin doesn't get one republican vote. What is joe manchin. Say in defensive of bipartisanship when his own attempted. Bipartisanship doesn't get one republican vote. What does he say. Then i think you frame a great test. And i think it's one of the challenges. We talk a lot about the president and the challenges on him. I think both speaker pelosi and leader schumer have giant leadership tests on them on what they decide to bring to the floor and how they decide to do the order the sequencing if you will And some of those decisions will be to make a point bird not to pass a bill. chuck schumer will bring things to the floor knowing that. He's not going to get the necessary republican votes or Maybe even not all the democratic votes But sometimes you know part of the reluctance of the white house to keep pushing federal legislation. Some people say it's because you don't have the votes therefore you're pushing losing 'cause You have to lose to win if you if you get my drift in that you know you might lose. You might lose legislatively but you're trying to make an argument that you follow back up on the next election or the like so. I don't know how this is going to play out. But i do think that idea you just mentioned is you know it's not calling mansions bluff but essentially giving mansion. What he wants here. You want to small remote. Let's try to do it. And if it dies then does that change his calculation. There's only one way to find out just one last thing about this. We have reverence iron munro and emmett price on every week there to local.
Is It Really Time to Get Rid of the Filibuster?
"Then there's also a couple of gun control bills at the House approved Perry. I'm wondering if this is doomed in the Senate, and then if that's indicative of other bills that are going to go to the Senate over the next couple of years and only to die because moderate Democrats kill them. What do you think? Yeah. I mean, we're the background checks. Bill was passing the Democrats in the last house on the defensive, because last time, too, in 2019 or 29, pretty sure and also move. Know where we're headed toward this big fight. And this week we saw what I think. Is the biggest illustration of it and where it's going to become most central, which is that you have, you know, you have basically three blocks of Democrats. You have sort of more the most sort of left where Democrats want to get rid of the filibuster and like and jetted Supremes Supreme Court and just to do a lot of really liberal things. By getting rid of the old duster. You have the Joe Mansions and the Kristen Cinemas. The senators who are putting on Opposed to giving the bill Buster, But you saw this week what I think is an emerging vision among Democrats, which J, which James Clyburn and Stacey Abrams both raised their two of the most prominent black figures in the party, which is that you shouldn't give her the filibuster for everything, but you really need to get rid of the filibuster so you can pass voting rights bills that protect particularly people of colors right to vote and the ability to vote, particularly in response to all these bills moving in states like Georgia, that would make it harder to Votes, and I think the filibuster fight is going toe feel about a lot of issues, but it's really going to be about these voting rights issues where you're going to see a lot of like black Democrats pressuring mansion and cinema, particularly and saying, you know, on some level, you may want the filibuster in theory, but you cannot prioritize the filibuster over black voting rights. That's where we're headed toward. Is gonna be this real fight in the next few months in the Democratic Party and buying so far is trying to say his staff's been saying his preference is to keep the filibuster. You know, people have lots of purpose is in life that they don't necessarily abide by and I think he's signaling maybe some open this to some changes on issue himself.

Senators worked throughout night to reach deal in coronavirus relief package

They're They're still still working through amendments amendments to the coronavirus relief relief package. package. One One hurdle jumped jumped over yesterday yesterday was rejection of an increase in the minimum wage. Now unemployment benefit there now appears to be in agreement. Between Democratic leaders and Joe Manchin of West Virginia Mansion has held out for a deal on unemployment benefits. And if there's any question as to who is the most powerful figure in Washington looked at Joe Mansion. Mansion has agreed to an extra $300 of unemployment benefits through September. Democrats in President Biden need mansions Vote to pass The Bill Biden backs this
Senate Holds Longest Vote in History as Democrats Scramble To Save Relief Bill
"Was quite a bit of drama in the senate yesterday where democrats were sort of scrambling to make sure that they had the votes over unemployment benefits and what happened. I think shows right. The slim majority the democrats hold in the power of certain senators. Yeah i mean. Essentially democrats went to the floor and they didn't have the votes and that really rarely happens. Senator joe manchin of west virginia. He's a democrat was an entirely on board with the party's plan for these extended unemployment benefits and he was threatening to vote with republicans on a competing proposal. Dr rail the entire process for about twelve hours yesterday until they finally came up with deal to tweak unemployment benefits to shorten how long they're going to be available for about a month now a lot of republicans just as the benefits were too generous especially with the economy turning around and the mass availability of vaccines expected likely by early summer. The senate did make some significant changes to the version that the house passed. What were those. I think most notably they scrapped the house plan for a fifteen dollar federal minimum wage violated senate budget rules but also it just didn't have enough support among democrats in the senate to pass joe mansion and kirsten cinema arizona. Were both against it. They also tighten the income limits for those fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks and they'll start phasing out for folks making over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. They lowered the income threshold. The house bill was more generous and they also made those extended unemployment benefits less generous. They reduce the benefit from an additional four hundred dollars a week to three hundred dollars a week. And they're going to expire now just after labor day instead of the end of september. Do you want to know what the white house has signed off on all these changes that they don't have a problem with it and again. I think it's always important to remind people that the broader contours of this bill is. It's still two trillion dollars nearly in very popular democratic spending proposals. So it's also one of the largest standalone spending bills in history and i think democrats overall see. This is a pretty big victory. Those changes though do me in the house will have to vote again before this gets sent over to the white house for biden signature. When will that happen. it should happen next week. They wanna get this done and send it to president biden by march fourteenth because that's when current extended unemployment benefits expire. It should be able to pass the house leaders. There have been looped in on all these changes. They've been looped in with communications with the white house but there is some frustration among house democrats especially progressive democrats that the benefits in this bill. Were basically cut down because of other democrats new jersey congresswoman bonnie watson said that she was quote disgusted by some of her senate democratic colleagues. She questioned whether she could support the reworked version of the bill. I think that's important because house. Democrats have essentially no margin for error. They can only lose three votes on any party. Line vote and still have it passed so there could be some more drama next week Again bottom line from the democrats. I've talked to you. No one thinks the party itself is going to derail major-party legislation that the top priority for the president and also remember. This bill is hugely popular with the public in recent polling. It's not bipartisan in congress. But it is to voters. And that's a message. That biden has been pressing
Senate holds longest vote in history
"End the senate they have been trying to pass the covid relief bill earlier in the day you might have seen headlines about the fact that the senate took a vote on senator bernie. Sanders is proposal to raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. Now that failed all republicans voted against it and incredibly democrats voted against it as well news in its own right but after that they started arguing in the senate amongst themselves. They all started arguing with joe mansion about unemployment benefits and the covert relief. Bill and they argued over that for nine hours ultimately landed somewhere which is very very close to where they started but they had nine hours of fighting about it turns out in that time they never technically gal shut the vote on bernie sanders is minimum wage thing which means accidentally we just had the official longest vote in senate history by mistake for nine hours for no reason. Congratulations as for the pint. Final passage of this bill. We'd been expecting it sometime this weekend with this pointless nine hour delay. It's unclear when we're going to see this thing getting past but watch this space.
"joe mansion" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"America to you it, Joe Mansion promised. In November. The night the following I commit to you tonight, and I commit to all of your viewers and everyone else that's watching. I want to allay those fears. I want to rest those fears for you right now. Because when they talk about whether it will be packing the courts or ending the filibuster, I will not do that. I will not vote to pack the courts and I will not vote to end the filibuster. Close quote, Uh, Matt Spaulding, dean of Hillsdale College in the hill Tail dialogue. Can Joe mansion vote for an organizing resolution that does not protect the filibuster if Mitch McConnell lays that resolution on the table as the alternative to what are the current rules? I don't see how he can. And, uh, I don't think he should. Based not on on the sentiment here, but for his own self interest. The old kind of here is if it's not in that rule is the first time this comes up in a major piece of legislation in which there's massive pressure he's going to put on the spot. And why you would want to put himself has I really don't know. Look, if if he understands this to be important than the the rule here, the beginning of the session is What matters. That's when the Senate makes its rules at the beginning of the session. That that is the key point. That's exactly what I was hoping you're saying without my eliciting it when Mitch McConnell says, We've got to make the rules now, and they say no. Well, we'll cross that bridge later. Joe Manchin can't say I'll cross that bridge later because he committed to cross it now. That's right. But also he can't not take a position now because the Senate will vote on its rules so he will either vote to end the filibuster or not. Because either in there, which is say it, Zey rule the Senate, which is constantly past getting of every session. There's in there or it's not This is not a matter of of Republicans trying to put something in there, which is not already there and not been there. The question is whether it's going to be written in a way that Z kind of S o nebulous that they could drop it later. But technically speaking, I mean the rules or past the beginning of the session, every session and later what happens is they're quote unquote reinterpreted. The Senate doesn't vote on its rules again. This is what's happened with it. These things from the past, they go to a go to the chair for some sort of reading on what it means. But the debate here really is being of the session. Indeed, so I would actually go so far with Mr mention that he's said very clearly where he's at. He's in a state in which This can't be a strong position to flip on. Are two to change on it away from that he's trying to protect the voting authority of the state of West Virginia in the Senate. He should go further, I think and say that he will not caucus with the party, which did not protect the filibuster and which does not say they won't pack the Supreme Court. That would be the logical thing is currently that's what always happened in the past. Why would you caucus Give your vote. So, for instance, if it's a 50 50 split, and this deal does not include the protection the filibuster, he should withdraw his vote from that majority, he could go independent. Now his response would be if he if he won response in his defense would be I will preserve the filibuster when anyone attempts to end it, But the rules that we're proposing to adopt our silent Therefore I'm not breaking my commitment because they're the same rules that were adopted when the Senate was last 50 50, and those roles did not include an explicit guarantee of the filibuster. Which I would respond. We know, facts matter history has happened. We know the nuclear option has been deployed to change the rules of the Senate in the first time ever by Harry Reid in 2013. So we know that options before so making explicit that which was implicit is in fact, consistent with your promise, which is more persuasive, Matt Right? No, I think it has made, uh, explicit. It's consistent with the history. It's consistent with what you said, and they do. This is when they do rules. This is the moment it has to be explicit now, because if it's not explicit that it's actually implicit, but it's going away. That's exactly what it means. That's exactly where the discussions been set up, and it needs to be clarified now, And I think any responsible legislator not just Mr Mansion, but every one of them any responsible Legislature. Needs declare by that in the rules. The Senate is a rule based organization. And these things really do matter if the rule of law matters so that the problem with so much of What's going on today is is the words don't mean what they actually say. Well, in this case, they actually do mean something, and we should be really thinking twice about what exactly is in those rules what it says. Mr Mansion, especially who has been very clear here needs to be very clear about that and make sure it clearly represents what he thinks, along with a lot of other people in the Senate. To preserve that. Otherwise, this whole thing is gonna blow up in a very messy way that I think all sides are going to reject. Look bad and all sizes. They're probably going tol, uh, wish that hadn't happened in the past leader McConnell. I hope you continue to take your principled stand that your caucus support you in it and that Senator Manchin goes along with his given.

"Case to supporters that have literally come from all across the globe to be there today, and as the goings ons continue in Washington, D C. We're taking an assessment of what any or all of it means, particularly if the Republicans on we may not know official results for Mr Purdue for a little while yet. But it looks like the Democrats may have picked up both seats in the Georgia runoff yesterday, and a lot of similar goofy irregularities were we're tracking. We've got a tweet at the top of my feed. That has pinned now I think it's close to a dozen instances of votes. Subtraction. This is the stuff that the Dana the data analysts have looked at. This all comes from the secretary of state's office. It is then processed by sidle through different software, then distributed to the networks and the reason that appears simultaneously and all the networks is because it's the official data. But we've now got documented with multiple networks at least three votes attractions that happened in real time on television coverage last night as they happen, you can go see that. At camp, See Radio on Twitter. But the man who really I shouldn't even be talking about this in front of who really does the undercover investigation gets to the heart of the matter, understands the truth and pokes and prods until he gets the stories. John Solomon he he was a co founder of the hill. He is now the founder and the chief guy over it, just the news and then their partners with Real America's voice. John. Welcome back. Always good to have you, Um, last night big takeaway from the Georgia elections. My thought is, if they used some of these questionable methods in 60 days previous and you don't say anything about it, you don't do anything about it. What's to keep him from doing it all over again? Yeah, Listen, I think when we look back when we have clarity of vision and where the smoke is cleared, the truth of the matter is the Democrats won this election long before Labor Day of last year, And the reason for that is They were able to go into the key states. Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona and make changes to the way the election was going to be conducted using covert as their cover. That would tip the advantage to their electorate on do so in a way that the lead to say the intent was actually violent because under the constitution on Lee legislators can change the rules for election. Somehow, in these states in Georgia with the Republican administration. They got a deal. They didn't consent decree. The Legislature wasn't even brought into it. People will look back attempting Rapids burger and say that was a bad choice. But the game plan that they did by getting the election rules changed and all of these states using Cove, it allowed them to get a vote out the way they used to get it out in Tammany Hall or in Chicago style politics is old fashioned. Ballot box stuffing Once you're able to loosen the rules and get the ballots mailed out to everyone, whether they want it or not, And you can have mobile drop boxes. You don't have to go bring it in yourself. You are able to give the Democrats the advantage they've always enjoyed in urban areas. If you skip voter, I d. You can do all sorts of things, and all of those things happened in Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia. The same playbook was played in all six. The key battleground states. And I think this election was won before Labor Day, and the Republicans yielded or did not object until was too late. And then they did another thing, which is They decided not to engage on mail in voting, which might have got him a few more votes. They did it on principle, but the principle may have cost him the election. So there's a big lesson to learn here, which is in the modern era. Elections are won before Labor Day. Not after Labor Day. The way you set the rolls and the narrative that you set in the marketplace or what, ultimately win the election, so the fake impeachment the fake rest of scandal. Fake outrage of cops over the summer. That allowed the Democrats to own the narrative and they own the election rolls, and that's how they pulled this off. Well at the end of this season. There's obviously going to be a lot of examination of what's going on, John. Let me ask you, you've been around and covered DeSean these politics for quite some time. There's a lot of panic on the right was and and not just typical corners of the right. I have black pastors in New York, calling me this week, saying They strongly wanted to see the Republicans win because the radical left is too is too much for this country to sustain. You saw the gains they made under eight years of Obama. They are emboldened. They feel like they can not only Do what they want to do now with impunity, but kind of rub Everybody's noses in it. Um is it is bad as what most people fear or are there things that people are forgetting. I think there's a lot of dynamics that we have to watch right, and the left has said what their agenda is, and many people find it radical right. But the reality is theme. Majorities in the Senate and in the house are razor thin. And there are going to be issues. Where are Joe Mansion or other centrist state Democrats are not going to be all take the vote for AOC. There are thresholds and have to be met. If you're going to bring a new state into the Union. You gotta have a super majority. If you want to change the electoral college, you've got to get a constitutional amendment these air. Hi, Um, threshold. Actions that sound great rhetorically. They're great for fundraising for the liberals. But the truth of the matter getting it done in Washington is going to be hard. So some of the more extreme things that make conservative nervous are Are going to probably, you know, not happen that special too too high. The city's too divided in the Senate is 50 50 with comma hero something to come out of the White House every day to give the extra vote. That's how tight it is. And you gotta Joe Mansion that isn't always going to go along with this party, So ah, Lot of things aren't going to get done. The things that are going to get done, You know, DACA healthcare things like that are going to, you know, put a liberal bent on the town. And the question is, as it often does in politics. Will that create an equal and opposite reaction in America? Will people look out and say the funding the police giving illegal immigrants benefits and citizenship that they didn't learn? Go through that list. I don't like that. Then 2022 could be a blood bath for the Democrats. And I think right now the Republicans after Look at 1993. There are two things you could do. You can complain and lament. And go into a morning coma for six or eight months you could do with new Gingrich did in 1993, which is immediately go on offense. Used the power you have between you. They can block a lot of things because House and senator so closed. And then turned the 2022 election into a referendum on liberal policies and Joe Biden and the map is favorable to Republicans. Kevin McCarthy's recruitment of candidates is favorable. He's getting House candidates under more favorable I think 2022 could be a very strong year for the Republicans. If they don't spend a lot of time pointing fingers and destroying each other and get right out of game plan to take back the country. Well, it's it's an interesting dilemma. Let me ask specifically because you mentioned the super majorities. I think the thing that people ask about most is the potential to pack the court. Trump's made a lot of headway on the development of the court in a more traditional federalist viewpoint, an originalist court if you will. Um, obviously making d C or Puerto Rico states would be one way that they could achieve a kind of a permanent majority on on court matters, but in terms of what they can do without a supermajority, what? What do you see is the impact of a Biden administration on the Supreme Court specifically. You know, I don't think that Joe Biden suddenly became a super liberal overnight. I mean, for most of his life, he was a moderate centrist,.

So I'm not telling you how it's gonna end. But I'm telling you, the fight is still on. Okay. But wait because I'm going to tell you what's going to make me jump because I mentioned to my husband during this whole election process because he felt like you felt in 2016 that there was no way Trump could lose. And I kept saying, I don't think you realize How bad they want to get rid of this man. The cheating is going to be outrageous. So if we lose the seats and Georgia where people do not want a socialist government if we lose the seats, they're the cheating is the way way more than we can ever battle. They have the money. They have the text. They have everything if we little stole seat We have to come to the conclusion that we can't fight them, and that's why I said I was ready to jump now if we can keep the seats and Georgia and keep the Senate Then I say we still have a chance. But if they're cheating is so amazing and remember, he's got the news media. He's got the tech He's got the money. I hear what you're saying. You're saying if they can cheat to this extent, then what's the point of voting? It got right. The two seats and Georgia I'm jumping off the ledge. I'm 74. It's not going to set me too much. Actually, Trump didn't do anything to help my portfolio that much because we were always self employed. So we had to invest our own money. So I just love the man because he loves the country. Um, but if they hate him this much, Larry, we can't fight them. He they have all the money. They have all the tech and they have the news media. Listen, I understand. I understand your perspective body and I understand why it looks bleak sometimes. And and I appreciate the call and and listen, I'm not going to take the responsibility of keeping you from jumping by. Hopefully you're just you're using a rhetorical flourish.

Why this candidate for West Virginia governor isn't even the focal point of his own campaign
"Stephen Smith was already running an unconventional campaign for governor of West Virginia. It's opponent fide of the people effort under the banner. West Virginia can't wait the campaign. Its Policy Proposals and budget have been discussed and written by the people. In fact. Smith isn't even the focal point of his own race for governor. Even Corona virus has an upended the campaign Smith says the pandemic has only enhanced their message. But will it work? If Smith who has to win the Democratic nomination in June defeats the incumbent Republican in November Smith. Thinks so hear him explain. Why Right now Stephen Smith thank you very much for coming on the podcast? Thank you so to be here so I've been watching your campaign now for a while since October when we met through our mutual friend justice guests and he wanted me to meet you because he was saying this. Guy Steven he is running a different kind of campaign. And you laid it out to me at that dinner. Talk about the kind of campaign. You're running so our campaign starts with a simple light. Yeah we actually don't think that one governor is the problems we actually believed that never in America district Sunni Non West. Virginia history has a politician in the answer politician League wars years ago or the teachers strike two years ago that we exchanged from the bottom up. So that's how we built our campaign starting Almost three years ago we having conversations with folks all across the state saying what would it look like? What would it take to run a campaign where the ended it just win one office but we won something closer to a people's Government in West Virginia? And that's what we're doing now a a people's government talk more about how this campaign is working because it it's not just hey on Seba Smith running for Governor and you've got volunteers around the state who are running around and getting people to vote for you. It's a little bit more involved in that right. They were to show people that were doing something different. We have to do it with our actions. Not just our word so the first thing I did was build county volunteer teams in all five counts tourist state so in every county. There's a West Virginia can't wait. Volunteer team is not Jefferson County for Stephen Smith Jefferson. County can't wait then. We realized that some people are gonNA come into politics based not from where they live but from their identity as a coal miner or color Muslim are students or social worker so we will thirty nine constituencies teams veterans can't waste seniors can't rate so last piece of the puzzle was New Year more than why can't and five fifteen or twenty people to run the same kind of kept a race that you're so look for people would say no pack money promised Across the picket line promises Behind from a debate never hunch down and again we thought fifteen twenty twenty five people that would be a revolution West Virginia here. We are eighteen months later. There are ninety four of us running together up down and importantly we're running all different kinds of offices and council to Congress and Senate and everything in between we also represent the people of West Virginia in a way that is far different adverse truer than the current I'm ninety four. Candidates are disproportionately black. Disproportionately women disproportionately veterans disproportionately educators. Came directly from the Teachers Strike Movement. Were disproportionately waiting members. The LG Clusky unity and together. We represent something more like what are states. And that's what wrath of these people I mean. You're you're running in. The Democratic Party are all the people who are running in all of these positions. The all these elected hopefully elected physicians. Are they also all democrats from the beginning of this campaign? We've announced strategic read but also morally. We had a duty to build the people's government not just based on the people only go Democrat. Which is a fairly small group of people in West Virginia? We defeat curious about inviting independence. I needed people who voted for the president. Met doesn't mean compromise our values on the contrary. What it means is looking. For the biggest boldest issues that could get and that's what we found in this campaign that on issue after issue there was a democratic position that you could find the state capital a Republicans Find the State Capitol and then it was a bit consensus. Common Sense. Position wasn't being argued by corporate arms of the Democratic or Party. And that's where we find our strength and that's why we broken Joe Mansions Record for the most. Donations ever in governor's race in West Virginia history because you're appealing to literally accountable to a wide range of people from all different parts of the state walks threatening.

"You could have spent if you voted yes on every single proposal and many many did Tom Carper Joe mansion, Chris coons? Mansions and interesting one supposedly remember, we're hearing this. He's this moderate guy. And he's basically a Republican not so much one point nine three two trillion dollars. Chris coons Timothy Kaine Maggie Saen. Mark Warner Gary Peters from Michigan. And you see those are all Democrats as you might expect the other page of the worst Heidi Heitkamp who's now gone Jean Shaheen, Joe Donnelly and Angus king who's an independent, but actually really a democrat all Democrats all one point nine three two trillion dollars the best. You're not going to be surprised by the two best. The only two senators in the entire Senate to lower spending rand Paul cut one hundred sixty one billion dollars with his votes and Mike Lee one hundred and fifty one billion dollars. No surprise of those two. And I think you kind of know right off the bat who the senators are who really care the house. It's going to be the kind of the same picture. I think these are the only I think it was a total of five that actually cut spending just in a mush was number one in the list cut one hundred sixty four point seven billion Thomas Massie just. Behind him at one sixty four six Jimmy Duncan from Tennessee one hundred and forty four point three billion role labrador one hundred eighteen and Morgan Griffith cut thirty eight billion dollars. But again fought we have seven people at a five hundred and thirty five that voted to cut spending. And it was only in the billions, and the I started with a one trillion. So they know no cutting was one hundred six one was the highest numbers. That was a billion a hundred sixty one billion cut the others. The bad ones are one trillion nine hundred million.

Look at the handshake. That's what I also noticed. I think she like like if she pulled the Trump in like Howard gone for awhile slight Trump pull there. But it's, but it's like she's kind of what like what's very funny to me. She's like, she's I mean flirting with them like, that's what's so funny about it.

"joe mansion" Discussed on Inside the Hive with Nick Bilton
"And I think I do think that I've said this before and I've been wrong. But I do think that people are kind of getting a little fed up with it all so we will see all right. So last question for you before we let you go. There is a group of three people who you call the outsiders in your list, and that is Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Joe mansion the the Republican senators who sometimes lean a little to the left. I think Joe mansion leans in whatever to wreck shin. He thinks we'll get him favor. But I think that that Susan Collins Lisa Murkowski r really strong willed, they truly believe in a lot of the things they talk about sometimes, of course, they go off the edge in in the wrong direction. But who doesn't, but they, you know in with a world where we have a democratic house. But a Republican says. Senate these three folks have quite a lot of power in the Senate. Do you think that they're going to ever use it against their own party? Or do you think that it's always party before everything else even for them? Well, I think it depends on the issue. I mean, I don't necessarily think it's party before everything else in every single case. Like you saw with a bomb care. It's it it can be. I think these are people who really do listen to their constituents like Susan Collins had people applauding her in an airport. Lisa Murkowski was fielding calls. But their inboxes were full. You know, I think that it will depend on the situation, which I know is kind of a non answer. But. I don't it's it's trickier in the Senate. Because obviously, they do have a firm agility. And so there's not a whole lot of motivation to go against the party line because they're not going to be the ones who's next are on the line for it. You know, I mean, it it may make a difference. It may not but with McConnell, vice grip it more than likely won't. But I do think we'll have to wait and see what sort of issues come down the line. Obviously abortion access will be forseeable something that is decided in the supreme court. And you know, we'll see how that unfolds. But if that were to be an issue that come up in the Senate, I'm not sure where Murkowski in Collins, specifically would fall on that they've both said various things about access in relation to healthcare as well. So so I'm not sure I think they're mean. Role will be to kind of to kind of liaise and two I think that they're very much people who feel things out and we've seen that in the back and forth coverage before some sort of crucial vote that they kind of take forever to decide where they fall on something that can be infuriating. But it's also something that I understand as a chronically indecisive person that they want to they want to get a lot of input on things. So I I do think it depends on on what we see coming down the pipeline. Interesting interesting. All right. Well, it is going to be an interesting twenty nineteen and I'm really excited that we kicked this off with you. Thank you so much clever taking the time today, and I we should we should make a little twenty dollar bet of who we who we think is going to be the democratic nominee. If we get inside question, we could win so much more that twenty dollars. I'm gonna go with two people. Okay. I'm gonna go with Kamala Harris, and I'm gonna go with three people Kamala. Harris that's not Dato and Bloomberg in that particular order minute. Beta Kamala, Bloomberg doesn't remind you can do maybe by three. If he if you run, I don't think Biden. Is that your order though, is is that the same order or different? Sorry. Tommy, they order again the order. I think he's gonna I'm gonna go Bego Kamala, Bloomberg as my order of who will be the nominee. I think fatal. This is hard to beta Bloomberg Kyle going to say that. But we don't even know Bloomberg is running yet. They don't mind make about this. This is Vegas. Okay. All right. Great. I can be. Yeah. I I think beta Bloomberg Kamala. All right. Well, we will see at the end maybe warn..
