"Doctorates. You see wealth. You see housing. You see health. Hospitals, doctors offices, amazing insurance plans. You see treatment for drugs and mental health issues for substance abuse issues. When you go to America's safest cities, you don't see them drowning in police. You don't. And it's dumb to say so or think so. When you go to America's largest and safest cities, you see something altogether different, you see a very complex socioeconomic equation that really drastically reduces crime. And that's not what we're seeing here from Joe Biden. Whenever you see people pour money into policing and mass incarceration to quote unquote, solve crime, to fight crime, what they are actually doing is pouring money into structures that they think will give white people and white property and white power back to those who desperately want it, but it does not protect black people and black communities. That's just not true. So, Joe Biden, Joe Biden has time for what he wants to have time for. But he sure hasn't prosecuted the police that killed Breonna Taylor or Eric Garner or John Crawford or tamir rice or philando Castile, like please actually keep your promises to black people and quit faking like you don't have time as we're nearing your second year. Please, goodness gracious. I know so many of you love this man and are even calling him uncle Joe. Listen, he does not think of you as family. Please stop calling. Joe Biden, your uncle. He is not your uncle. I've got to run. I'm going to be out for the next few days. I had a next surgery about a month ago, and I'm having two more over the next two weeks.

They account for less than thirteen percent of the US population but are killed by police at more than twice the rate of white Americans. Those numbers to May seem like there's a definite discrepancy this small population being killed at a higher rate than the majority like that's absolutely there's there's something wrong there I mean like even if you're not big into numbers that doesn't add up. Absolutely and that this is criminal conversation around criminal stuff that you have to also reported. reportings accurate.

It to ourselves to give each other equality. No one is asking for special treatment. People just want equal treatment equal rights to live where they want equal rights to get the jobs that they want equal rights to own property where they want just equality not special treatment just equality and that is not too much to ask for because it's something that needs to be ingrained and embedded in our society.

"I guess some of the first ones one was cleared by a Franklin County grand jury last October the shooting death of a twenty one year old what happened was they heard a wanted suspect was in an area he is wanted on felony charges of aggravated robbery and two counts of robbery aggravated meaning a weapon and so when they saw when this individual solid the patrol officers he fired shots at the cops and ram you've actually hold up they brought slide in and he was shot in a gun battle with police what exactly are the odds are supposed to do when they're fired upon by an individual who's already wanted for for armed robbery and then when he's holed up get shot by swat officers because he's shooting at us while officers what are you supposed to do at that point and how does that how does that invite you being on the side that your poor life was lost when you decided to shoot at other human beings and yet another guy violence restraining order by pouring gasoline on its axis front porch in attempt to burn her out of her home when they showed up the cops showed up he took off and said I'll shoot any police officer that follows me sure enough he came out with a gun it turned out after he was shot to death to be a pellet gun but it was a suicide by cop version of how the cops posted with a pellet gun because we saw what happened with Mr Crawford John Crawford in the Beaver Creek Walmart that was a BB gun a Walmart looks like the real thing same thing here and the all the cops are warned and shouldn't but because the list of all these cops I guess the the almost all of them have the same situation but yet the narrative is bad officer killed a black guy without a shred of context without any any subtlety whatsoever and here's the problem if people like me and maybe you look at this and go yeah you're right Saloni essay in that it turns off of the whole reform thing we'll be looking at reform but how does that help your cause when you see a poster of every cop that is killed a person of color in Columbus in recent years in in in you implied by doing that that there's absolutely no circumstance where a police officer was justified in shooting a guy because of the color of his skin we need to tell me that's not justified the guy shot at a police shot the police officers who were looking for him because he shot other people and he opened fire on cops cops should return fire because the color of his skin what the hell is that I mean there there's no intellectual honesty in this whatsoever the adult the facts matter yes they do we want accountability we want transparent we want all those things out of our police officers what what happened with the police officer and since that is a great example of that you know it is there are there going to be charges probably not but they're going to find out why those rounds fit or why he grabbed the rounds and if there's something they can do in the future but yeah I'm simply that there's going to be some sort of penalty for this office or maybe something in this file or could be a suspension we don't know yet but they're gonna go through the process to find out why this happened and how to make sure it doesn't happen again which is reasonable right it was the intent I'm gonna shoot this guy because they already fired everything Adam that wasn't lethal to the point where he ran a bean bag rounds and put the bean bag rounds what he thought were being backgrounds in the gun now are they good people in the community that say oh yeah that's what they're saying but you know he just wanted a murder this guy was going to murder the guy he would you shot him to begin with that waste of his time with bean bag rounds but that's what you're up against here and these are the people want reform in change I want to be heard and listened to and demand that their voices be heard as they scream a council members involved in their homes and then when you went when you find out what the facts are clear the facts don't matter I mean in an overwhelmingly copter making correct decisions when it comes to use of force and there are bad actors out there there are bad people out there they're bad individuals out there okay you can't just simply right away everything's police brutality when it's not it now and that's where this narrative I think in my opinion starts the collapse of black lives matter got a legitimate beef absolutely but when you start including things in their their indefensible what does that say about your tactics and what you really want and what you wind up they're doing is just slowing more discontent among people who may want to see your way and when they hear that they go you guys are nuts and then we're just you know you wonder why nothing changes right it's it's the same as defending the officers in Minnesota as you would an officer who is a tale as you know it's it's the same as saying the cop it Derek shaman in Minnesota is exactly like Sonny Kim two entirely different situation different things so he can die der shamans the lie but together all the time no no clearly they're not indeed quit acting like they are kids just doesn't get it and then you do it because you're allegedly a learner just alerted Scollard individual on you're just a clown I will point out if we don't need cops here's a story I saw this weekend and it's just it really makes your heart sing because I understand that there are individuals with badges in the sworn to protect the public taxpayers it's a different standard than that average citizens but here's why we need top this happened on Saturday in Chicago which I have like forty something shootings this weekend alone three teenage boys go to stores that sell Chicago to buy.

protect I remember my grandparents given me to talk about making sure that I was on my best behavior especially around the police it's only right of course there yeah thirty figures are you supposed to be good and on your best behavior around police the police are the authority and you have to make sure your hands are where they can be seen and don't forget also to pray because you see it's not a matter of being a good citizen and doing the right things and you'll be okay nope that's not for everybody especially if you're black we divide between black people and the police have existed for generations the Floyd murder by former officer Derek Chauvin is not a one off or just somewhere currents the murder by a police officer while he's in duty four unarmed black person is prevalent today as it was one hundred years ago imagine you get arrested by the police there is that fear that you have right you get arrested by police in like all my goodness so how will I get out of the situation who do I call once I get to the police station I'm arrested so I'm back in the squad car I take some kind of provocative S. and and what's going to happen once I get to the station how do I handle this who who I call but I'm sure you wouldn't think once the cops have the hand cuffs on that an officer there to serve and protect what places me on the back of your neck for over eight minutes so you can't breathe so your bloodstream stops until your heart stops right to your death you see that's what happened to George Floyd he died from a police officer who decided to play god with someone's life taking advantage of someone because you have a bad because you can I understand that there is a lot of distractions and finger pointing on what ifs based on the daily conjecture that we into or on a daily basis but the focus should be on yet another black man another citizen of this country dying senselessly a man died at the hands of police which is not uncommon this is not new it was completely unnecessary what should imagine something what should imagine living in a world in which you want equality imagine living in a world in which you want to be treated like everyone else and that brass ring just keeps on raising the price ranges keeps on raising you keep reaching forty keep reaching fort and you aren't allowed to have that brass ring because you look different because your background is different you are a second class citizen because you aren't white how's that for a wonderful existence many African Americans deal with that on a daily basis no matter what Floyd did what is a phony twenty dollar bill or not he didn't deserve to die arrested sure die now once again this is nothing new if there's no video I'm talking to you about Major League Baseball and its return I'm talking to you about the NBA and its return we got Ramona Shelburne sound that we would have played here in this spot at seven oh seven what the reason why that I can't talk about that is because of there was yet another officer they want to end the life of someone just because it's horrible we do it to ourselves no shooting and killing one another just because we can let's just kill one another over property that you probably don't even own property you don't even rent warm kill someone because somebody said something to you because you don't have the where with all with the balls to throw hands so you should have someone it's horrible when we do it to ourselves but even worse when does take an oath to serve and protect us and when they do it to us when they shoot and kill us they are the authority to help us through but not every case selfishness is are a lot stronger than humanity we as Americans are so we're so consumed about what we're doing selfish all of us me everybody we're selfish spot so fees in look like me and follow me it's about me it's about what we do we are so self absorbed self obsessed with your ideals your upbringing and being inflexible to the needs of others humanity and caring for the human race or human beings collectively where is the humanity in twenty twenty humanity in some parts of the world this is absolutely nonexistent three people that don't like you because you're not from the same background and not from the same community like animals I take it back some people have more empathy for animals they do people especially those of color just think about that for a second why would I treat you as a black man differently because you have a different background a different color different family different ideals we stopped communicating and we decided to just shoot one another or just do away with one another that's what we've done here so we've done the Gulf between us has gotten so big why is that four officers had the opportunity to the right thing and be able to bring the call for a little closer well the Gulf ever be completely closed I don't know hopefully my lifetime we will but if not it's okay because the Gulf at some point has to close between us you and I citizens people for visitors have the opportunity to do the right thing and without the video some would have looked at this story like another inward just got killed by the police move on to the next IG story I'm tired today under the hood listeners I'm I'm tired and you should be tired as well the unrest in the streets because of the systemic repeated short sighted undermining and killing of unarmed black people you should be tired you should be tired of asking of answering those questions are asking what what can I do what what's what's next because here's the thing I'll call it before it even ends after this George Floyd case where the officers are going to be put in jail or not what happens next what happens next after this George Floyd case another black person or another citizen just gets killed for no reason the police that we've seen here last seventy two plus hours just go to any Instagram story just go to any place on Twitter or Facebook and you will see how officers have had it up to here with protesters to the point where some of the things that we have seen over the last seventy two hours is reminiscent of what we saw from George Floyd without the death I was just tell Eric never saw the same thing in Seattle where officers are used to being able to put their knee behind the neck of someone if you have a protester said kitchen me off the guy's neck he's already arrested he's already bound he's already has the handcuffs on why do you have your knee on his neck for three minutes that's the thing thank you twenty twenty the reason why that we're talking about this today the reason why that they are both their businesses their own I've been just torn apart and boarded up is because of this story of George Floyd and many others wanna make sure it's very clear it is very important for those that believe that this is wrong I believe it's wrong you should believe it's wrong we'll make sure it's very clear that it is important for us to be able speak out on these things if you're white and you're saying that I don't know I just if you're doing that you also are the problem if you're Latino if you're Asian if you're a woman man whatever if you are not saying anything about this the say Hey this is got to stop then you also the problem somehow are you behind your keyboard or stop hiding behind know your backyard to say and I don't know what these people are doing these people are your people also these protesters they're also you too because they're human beings it is selfishness and silence this is permitting throughout our world here selfishness silence it doesn't help the divide between citizens and police if it's wrong it's wrong there's no shades of gray of someone that has to die at the hands of police again there is no shades of gray if you are a police officer listening to the show you think that this indictment all police of course it's not it's not but your children and those are the three police officers and many others are in other cases making you look bad the making you look bad because you're doing your job you're out there on the line is trying to protect all of us but if you're sitting silently in the pool in the patrol car and not saying anything about this and not saying Hey this is wrong you're also part of the problem yeah it's a brotherhood yes this is true that's great right for the police it's part of that yeah that's great but here's the thing if you're not speaking on this you're the problem along with many other things this is been one hell of a twenty twenty has not the melting pot of George Floyd and the consistent murders by the police of black people in this country Corbett nineteen in being quarantined businesses there are shut down you don't know if you should go out your life is to stay home state save lives we know we all want to go out you don't know where the next paycheck is coming from because you are employed just like so many Americans are unemployed you don't know how to pay the gas bill the light bill you don't know how you're going to be able to pay the mortgage because

"Again? I think that if that's what made her deliver deliver this for Kim performance on gun on her side. And you know there's also the famous scene where I thought would be done away. must've had to do her whole life. which something you mentioned already chase like when she had to tell man the like she's GonNa fucking like have demands and man better? Listen this happens right when the her I think was when her the the Soda King King Die Right House. Yeah how is that win or was it early on was she says has don't fuck with Michelle that's in the Pepsi Board meeting after. How has died when they want to kind of get her off the board? And that's that's just as famous ally ask no wire hangers. Is that the only effort. PG rated nineteen eighty-one movies preachy. Thirteen era that's all. I can do one F if word it's like when you watch airplane and there's exposed breasts that just bounce through the phrase. Yeah what in the world got to use these kids or know kids that was it also look think like her performance like must've inspire you know and who knows what his buyers what it's all in the air right in the ether but like Sir. Salinas that right. I mean. It's very very contained performance. Obviously but Lena Heady Lena hetty she's doing kind of those things but in the very contained weight wait that I think Faye dunaway is doing to me their energy in some ways as a very different. But it's also very similar like that. She's the Queen. She's a fucking fucking queen no matter where she goes. I don't know man maybe. All strong women come off similar in some ways. When there's something about this royal power for that I think I see in both Sir Selena? STOR and John Crawford as performed by Faye Dunaway in this film and I think fit dunaway really took you got no heart because that is how Joan felt when Louis Mayor Tells Joan that she's Hollywood royalty that is they're treated that way. Now to an extent that back then even more so any book about any actor from that time period and forms how celebrities retreated back then their way of life. They're never in their sweats going to the supermarket. Ever they didn't I think to own sweats period. She might be using sweats right when she's running and trying to him for athletic endeavors shirt but what Joan Crawford believed she was royalty and I think Faye dunaway nails that aspect as well you can even see brief moments and I think they're brilliant of just. The delusion allusion literally sweep across her face at the very end of the scene after she has beaten her daughter with a wire hanger address a bottle of comment and a rag as she's leaving leaving until sorta clean up this mess. you see just the slightest smile. Oh Hell Yeah House. Yeah and I think it's genius and what's interesting to note is prior to Faye dunaway. The choice to play play Joan Crawford was amp Bancroft of the graduate and while she is a genius in her own right that would have been a much different performance and I think it would have been a much different movie. And I don't know if it would have pat its cult status without Faye dunaway. Yeah that's interesting. That's an interesting alternate universe to think about because you would probably expect amp Bancroft. Give them more grounded. Proponents probably what like the screenwriter was envisioning when they wrote it and yet that's Wow I to to see that movie would would be fast. Yeah somewhere out there. Diversions of us are doing podcasts. Unjust that want to go there or or just want is just like super disposable disposable because who cares right like clearly fade the Faye Dunaway Ness of this movie is what has made it such an enduring peace of this media. No doubt because we weren't really planning this podcast is much about Faye. dunaway is there is about the film. But it's really going hand I I don't think you can separate at the two and I think that if you've brought on to in any capacity to ever defend that movie it's going to be solely by the virtue of dunaway's performance. So how does the film and and I think we've covered the part of it. Yes you're right into you know we've had guests describe movies as a series of vignettes and just be very wrong about that but this certainly family is that is this is a series of like brief episodes and it just jumps from incident incidents especially bio pics. It just happens a lot does offer an editor. You know what I mean like it. Just you fitting an entire life over prominent human being into two hours. I mean it's not a two hour movie just like five minutes. Yeah it's at the to Aramark for you know I think the best quote unquote best best. bio-pics are the ones that kind of choose a moment in time. I and really like dig in on that and use that moment to inform who the person was something thing like Selma or something like that. It's it's a lot harder to succeed when you're trying to take his whole life and put a whole life on screen. That's much harder harder to do. Yeah so what happens in. Act Three here and bear in mind starts to feel shaggy right because the second actress is playing plane Christina this whole time. It's hard to really get a sense of how much time is passing. Especially when they dunaway is not aging as much as any character. You would be to help. Communicate it to the audience right but of course there's the famous episode of something that really happened when John Crawford steps at like like sixty years old To play a twenty eight year old age. Yeah Yeah. Christina was on a soap opera and her I believe appendix burst called Storm Chaser. It's something that or something in the night. Or One of those throwaway soap opera titles from that era but yeah dunaway worked a day or two four episodes GAC playing twenty-eight-year-old at sixty and it was at her insistence. Like great we can have. We can have the John Crawford four like scale do we can never afford her. Otherwise if she's going to play twenty eight year old it's okay. People would just like washing water failure slash success of I dunno Hollywood making a dumb decision I I wonder if that footage is available I tend to recall having looked for it years ago. I've looked for it and back then. Everything was so disposable and especially for soap opera with her shooting an episode a day. So it's a real shame that that doesn't exist anymore. If if it doesn't that's one one of the places where I think this movie fails and what like the production was setting out to do. Like I WANNA see some fallout fall out from that right John Episode. But just digging deeper right what is it propelled characters further. Be This and that you see. Christina is not pleased with it but then in the next scene has jumped some unknown number of years. And we're hair right so you know. I don't think this was like a breaking point for them but how did what happened in their relationship because of that. Yeah now yeah I feel like because it's trying to shove You know the first half of the movie is maybe like two years and then the second half of the movie is forty years all shoved into one hour and so it loses the threat there. We'll meet you know as I mentioned before Christina's husband and he like literally introduce himself to us the film audience he's like I'm Christina's husband like I've been around or whatever I think. He has a line he there at the funeral and Christine is like has her moment with her mom She walks out of the vestibule where the bodies being kept and Christopher is there is the adopted son that we haven't seen for the last hour. The wires liars you realize. That's it is she's like. Hey Christopher it's great to see you and he's now played by Zander. Berkeley who's WHO's an actor? WHO's in in heat in two thousand four and he looks very young? I thought it was really funny. And then this guy walks up and she's like. Oh David Hay Chris. My husband was like all right. Never met before. Yeah for some reason Jay I when I was telling him. I'm watching this movie. He's all right. It's you know the the kids names are Christina. Gene and Christopher Christopher right. Christopher is barely in this Philip. Why would you ever remember? The Christopher is a witness to the famous wire hanger scene with many of those he was like he was he got his shoes. And one of the lions one of the many things to your point about like what's the fallout. This movie is either either setup or pay off it is rarely both of them and with the instance of Christopher we just eventually see him. We never mentioned adopting him ever and and yet all of a sudden he's there and then all of a sudden later that night. He's in a harness we don't know why and so it gives us a line that lets people know that he's in the scene of Christopher for no strap yourself in she'll kill me if she finds out and so you know Christopher's and she's named dropped him and then the other time you see him you know say something is really when he finds out that He. I'm sorry Christmas. The radio show her as she's like looking at them. Like you. Better say this right right. Because there's a radio host over at their house. Ending the Christmas story I heard him exclaim as he'd Merry Christmas to all good night yeah and I was thinking of the final I'll see and where he basically like for Christopher when he finds the officer went up when he's surprised that he's not getting any money disempower which was also I pulled from truth She all four children disinherited. Or just these do. I know that that fact exists. I don't know if all of them were. I Know Christina and Christopher definitely were how Jerry Lewis of that's supposed and Christina said is as the movie conveys she did say for reasons. Isn't that are known to them. Both and Christina said. We don't know what reason that is. Which I think is what propelled Christina to write this book? I assumed it was because Joan John's well. I think that not getting any money was a big fuel to that fire. Jone Jones says throughout the movie like. Oh it's better to make your own way she has this kind of like pull yourself up by your bootstraps. The way that I did kind of approach. That's what I was thinking. That was a reference soon. The will but you know who who knows one thing about Christopher that is interesting so we we are introduced to him as baby when he's adopted and then certain point he's not a baby and he's like six years old now but that Christina has not gotten any older. You're right but so inviable life. Joan Crawford adopted a second child. Christopher as a baby uh-huh the birth parents Christopher re-claimed Christopher he was removed from Jones House Joan adopted a new boy boy gave them a different name so real life at a certain point..

"Fissures? Things one agreeing with Adam. I don't think yesterday was terribly interesting times UNICEF all races. There a lot of surprises and. Surprise wars, the the Westfield council races. The to lost Gary I've been hearing for a few weeks that that their fin Wilson was in trouble. And when you're in a combat. And have seven opponents. Something's something's going on. I think now I think she's credibly capable shuts, credibly intelligent. So I don't know all the dynamics there. But I had been hearing that it was a close race and tough for her. But there weren't that many other surprise ending. I'd say about about Westfield in admittedly. I didn't follow those council races. But the fact that mayor eighty cook did not have an opponent. He wasn't out there making the case. The progress that they've made changes that they've made and the development that's a Kurd in in that case, I think that that hurt those incumbents because you didn't have kind of a big over arching message. And we which these communities are similar in the way that you know. They have room tremendously over the last ten years. He's mayors are aggressive. They're doing a lot of they're they're changing things rapidly. And you've got you've got voters some who've been there for many many years and some were very new, and maybe less kind of apt to come out and show their support for what's happened is the reason that they're they're so fishers, our strategy was running the mayor. Together, the mayor opponent the counselors had an opponent in. So we coordinated all of those messages. And so we had a big over arching case to make for what we had done. All those candidates ran on and in in that case, it was you know, it was successful. And I think something. Have worked but just kind of one on one. You don't have the same kind of money. Guillen make that case. So that's one observation I think similarly in Greenwood also community of change. But yet a similar result kind of a sixty sixty four thirty six in Fisher's sixty seven thirty three, and I think the Republican base generally twenty to thirty percent of peddling not going to be embracing all of the all the kind of change this happened. The one other thing that I would note just as. Won't time political person in Fort Wayne. There was a very competitive primary on the Republican side tends to be a longtime city councillor. John John Crawford. Dr crawford. And. Having tried to help win a Fort Wayne mayor's race a couple of times in my twenty five thirty years. Feels like the same thing happens every time we have nasty primaries because we can all rally gets person. And he had a pretty big divide between the social conservatives and more kind of socially moderate, folks. And then they have a difficult time coming back together in order to be successful in the fall. Hopefully that doesn't happen this time, but all good. All the pieces are placed for something. Like that. Your. I find that he will typically tend to lose those those hard one patches on their sleeve when the checks are willing to words general election time, and everyone can be friends again. Hopefully that will happen on this cargo Hejin, but I thought the racist Muncie. We're really interesting you'd have your first mayoral candidate their first black female all candidate. I think it is up in munsey. I said that was a that was a great thing to be and then down in Bloomington. You saw some very standard-bearer council people lose, and we that was unexpected Christopher von Dr Dorothy Granger, some really strong individuals on their council down there. Some human services advocates were were taken out with without an issue. So those are key eighteen year incumbent that. Have been have been taken out of that council. Mix up down there. And then there are also some concerns I think that I turn out as well. I think that live number even please. I'm been numbered were down someone that that I expected traditionally really heavy lead companies. I really like two hundred people voting in one come in. When I started going. So you only have one hundred seventy six people choosing your your candidate primary and even Bloomington. It is good to show you that there might actually be something to be said for primary system, and how it structured here in Indiana. And I know I've got a lot to say. From that as well. Really? War democratic way to run the city potholes. Whole do public safety. Or you don't really need primer system. That is Republican democrat school board. Get sixty percent. Runoff. Months and. I think there's merit for that. So to file Adams situation. I I think are just a little change plug that. I know you did see some hardy diehards wouldn't really be all about it. I think it'd be interesting works out there in inspired of really interesting conversations about how how redistricting happens council, and I think it it. You know, definite fodder for the future. But I do think towards the general in member. We'll have some interesting conversations as well. And I know Jim Mary thought there working I see, you know, constantly painting on the phone.

"Jeremy so Pritzker made some bold promises during the campaign, including raising the minimum wage legalizing recreational marijuana and sports betting is he going to be able to get those things done now that his party controls. Everything will it is a progressive agenda that he's laid out and to be honest. It's a pretty progressive general assembly right now a lot of. Democrats as you mentioned have been in a lot of New Democrats have been elected. So the theory is yes, at least on some of these things especially things that don't cost a lot of money to the state treasury. He could probably get some of these things through marijuana seems to be one of those real possibilities here in the session. Is he going to need Republicans at all to get his agenda through he might need them on certain things, but it's such a huge democratic majority. And again, some of these things I think are in lockstep with what the caucuses the democratic caucus in the house and Senate want that I don't know that he'll need them. He may want them. He may want to try to foster more bipartisanship for certain areas, but he can get through even if he can get a lot of these things for even if a lot of Democrats decide they don't wanna go along Illinois faces major challenges the state has more than seven billion dollars in unpaid bills Pritzker is going to be trying to negotiate a new contract with the state's largest employees union, which was at an impasse with governor round or talk about the challenges that governor. Pritzker faces. Well, that's one right there. I think in the sense that the state of Illinois has a huge backlog of bills a lot of that brought on by previous mismanagement of government through the years and also because of that state budget impasse when Bruce rounder took over he did not go ahead and put in place a higher income tax rate that had been there at expired. He did not go along with that. And it took two years before lawmakers were able to put it back in during that period of time the state continued to spend at a higher rate like the tax was in place. And so the backlog of bills is up there is a deficit in the current budget that he will inherit Pritzker will inherit here. And then a we have one of the most unfunded pension liabilities in the US. So anything he does here where the whether it comes to working with the state's unions. Whether it comes to spending money on certain projects that he wants to get in place and policies.
