Chrome tackles Abusive Ads
"Chrome Fortunately will be getting tough on abusive ads. In a posting on get hub. Google's engineer John. Delaney has spelled out the chromium projects, intentions regarding abusive ads. So. First of all modern web pages are a jungle of stuff. So how does chromium the chromium engine determine? For itself what's an ad and what isn't It comes down to something known as add tagging. Chromium is able to detect some ads and the resources they load in the browser. This enables the browser to measure the size, the performance and the count of ads displayed. To its users, it also allows the browser to intervene on the user's behalf when ads run counter to what they decide is the users interest, for example, using crazy amount of resources engaging in some abusive behavior or whatever. So that add detection infrastructure, they call at tagging and it's not very inspired. It works by matching resource requests against a filter list to determine if they're ad requests and in there in a sample that they've got of some code, they show them you like importing the easy list, which of course, is a well known list that's being maintained by a community of a known domain names that are providing ads. So they said any requests. Matching the filter are tagged as adds further requests and some dom elements such as I frames made on behalf of previously tagged scripts are also tagged as ads by the AD tracker. So it's not just it's as images that match the filter. It's if scripts were coming from a a known add source than the things that are essentially descendents of those scripts would also be tagged as ads, which certainly you'd want to have happen. They said I pray will be marked as an ad I frame. If it's your L. matches the filter list if tagged. Is Involved in the creation of the I frame or if it's parent frame is an ad I frame. So you know you can't get can't sneak out of it by creating a frame within a frame and say look I'm not the original one. The mainframe on a page will never be tagged as an add good. and. Then they said any request made within an ad I frame is considered an ad resource request. So drilling down on this one level. We learned that this sub resource filter loads the filter list, and then perform this url matching of any requests against that list it's distributed. That is the filter list is distributed via the component update, which is just part of the chrome installation. So it's be main, it's being kept current constantly, and the same list and component is also used for blocking ads on abusive sites. And those that violate the better ads standard. they explained that each sub resource request in the render process is processed by the sub resource filter before the request is sent from the browser out. So it's not that it blocks things coming back. It never makes the request in the first place. It just you know denies denies it on the from the the page making the request. Okay so you get ads identified as such. How were they treated differently this is where John, explains what they they call the heavy add intervention. A small fraction of ads on the Web us and John Likes the word egregious will see there's a couple of times and egregious amount of system resources. He says these poorly performance ads whether intentional or not harm the user's browsing experience by making pages slow draining the device's battery and consuming mobile data. He says for those without unlimited plans and then he says, in these egregious cases, the browser can upload the offending adds. To, protect the individuals divide. I'm sorry that browser can unload saying wet the browser can unload the offending adds to protect the individuals device resources. He says, this is a strong intervention that's meant to safeguard the users resources with low risk because unloading and add is unlikely to result in loss of functionality of the pages main content. Is as examples of observed at behavior that are intended to be discouraged. Are Note no surprise adds that mine crypto currency. ADDS that load large poorly compressed into is So just sloppy ads ads that loge large video files before a user gesture. Or adds that perform expensive operations in Java script such as decoding video files or seat. CPU Timing Attacks Yeah we don't want those. So Google notes that is not their intention to discourage any specific ad creative formats such as display video ads. So they're trying to be as agnostic as possible. So the user agent, the Browser will unload ads that US and he says again and agreed amount of network bandwidth or CPU usage. We define reaches as using more of a resource than ninety nine point, nine percent of ads as measured by the browser. That's well, you know. So that sets a very high bar says he and he says only adds that have not been interacted with by the user will be unloaded. And here's what's interesting and this is some tech We've never talked about before that's therefore worth mentioning. All unloaded frames will be notified via an intervention report. That the intervention occurred. This feedback is necessary to help advertisers or their AD technology vendors to identify and fix ads that are triggering this intervention. So first of all, just a little bit a little last word on the classification of ads. He says that's left to the discretion of the user agent. For example, chrome detects ads using what we talked about the ad tagging feature. An advertisement is considered heavy if it has not been clicked on by the user and meets any of the following criteria. It uses the main thread for more than sixty seconds total. The or used the main thread for more than fifteen seconds in any thirty second window. So they they said and parental fifty percent utilization over thirty seconds. Or used more than four megabytes of network bandwidth to load resources. So any of those thresholds get crossed the that the new chrome technology will say, nope and just boot the ad it's you know, sorry, you're a bad. And he said that the thresholds above were inspired by the I. ABC's lean standard that's in caps but chosen to but has chosen by looking at crumbs metrics at the ninety nine point ninth percentile of network and CPU usage in ads so again. Most ads are not gonNa Cross that line but those that do, and there are some bye-bye.

"Twenty democratic presidential candidates were back on stage for two nights of debates for many in the pact race it could be their last chance to take on their fellow competitors before a mass audience more than half the current candidates are pulling too low to qualify for the third round of debates next month in Houston on Tuesday the first night of the CNN debates moderate underdogs came out swinging ABC's Erin to Turkey was there in Detroit progressive front runners came under fire from moderate rivals John Delaney argued Medicare for all would take private insurance from people preferred we got to be the party of taking something away no one is running on Elizabeth Warren defended the idea we are not about trying to take away health care from anyone that's what the what Warren style policies Tim Ryan argued would doom the party I do not think that's a recipe for success roster Anders on Medicare for all the covers all healthcare needs for senior citizens it will finally include dental cap hearing aids and I glasses but you don't second of all you don't know that it will come
50 percent chance of a single debate, 10 people in the race by September
"Does appear that there's a fifty fifty chance we're going to have a single debate next time that we're only going to have ten people in the race by September based upon a criteria that must be met by by three and a half weeks from now August twenty eighth both involving number of donors and involving breaking certain thresholds in a polls. I think you gotTA break a two percent threshold. which I think is reasonable? I mean I appreciate the idea that the Democratic Party wants to be as Democratic Small D. as as possible or big D I should say small d. one of these and but I think I think saying thing that you need more than one point three percent in the polls or one point eight percent in the polls to qualify for the third debate. It seems fair to me otherwise we'll have John Delaney in this thing for the rest of a attorney because he's a millionaire and he can pay for himself to go through it
Highlights and analysis of the debate
"And center I'm Josh barro of New York magazine on the right is Megan McArdle of The Washington Post on the left is plain old also a columnist at The Washington Post and when it Lopez of business insider is our special guest all right so we talked about trade but obviously there was much much much more than trade whole lane who won these debates I'm I don't think anybody won these debates actual lay I think everybody I went through and read tons of commentary at one point and came to the absolute conclusion that everybody thought the candidate that they like the most won the debate I read impassioned defense you know a passion Biden won the debate Warren when the debate Sanders won the debate I even saw John Delaney won the debate I saw in this way I mean it was across the board and conversely people generally thought whoever they didn't like didn't do particularly well so you saw well you toward in Sanders only did well because they teamed up and you know they were against some lilliputian and you saw well by now only did well because you know he was against terror out send and so on and Harris only did well or you know whatnot because she wasn't fully attacked the way she deserved and so on down the line and I think it just sort of became a sort of wash and I think the pop that was the public's reaction to I mean barely anybody watch I think it had viewership of about eight million at fat and to be honest it's actually already it's Friday it's already kind of hard to remember very much of it so I mostly agree with that with two exceptions one is that I don't really think I saw anybody saying that they thought Kamel Harris had a good night even people who work fans of commerce he didn't work for her campaign you probably weren't saying that she won the debate and and then the flip side of that is I saw a lot of people saying they really thought Cory Booker did a good job in that sort of elevated himself above the the lower tier position that he had managed to hold on to in this debate I Meg and I know you wrote about Kamel Harris this week yes I think that there's no question that she lost the debate in in part because you know she her last debate she was definitely the clear winner rich she went into the debate point seven percent she comes out pulling at fifteen right that is a major move and that is because she she took the fight to Joe Biden sort of questioning him about his history opposing federal school busing efforts and people thought here is the fighter who can really dismantle trump on stage but the problem with that is that she then went into this debate as a front runner and people were gunning for her and it turns out that she's all offense and no defense and so when people started landing punches she was just reeling and really not able to mount an effective response on the other side of that I thought Elizabeth Warren did well enough I mean I think she slightly improved her position she looked very good but mostly she siphoning voters from Bernie who I think did not do well in this debate not because he did badly but merely because he's just holding steady it's not really widening as support Cory Booker I agree absolutely like god himself noticed finally after months and months of waiting for this to happen I think enter Yang also I don't think he's gonna be president but I think that you know he went into this debate with almost no one knowing who he is he made a couple of very well timed jokes sounded very coherent and you know plausible if not to me personally very convincing on things like his signature universal basic income initiative so I think there were a number of people who really committed this to be looking much better but in part that was because of what the for one of the sort of great white hopes came out looking much worse can can we and and I hope this is the last time in my life I ever have to say this phrase can we talk about and Yang for a moment alleluia the Ted talk version of politics yeah I I don't get it at all I don't get the people who are you know talking about you know good night friend Riang I mean I guess you know if you're if you're not really Yang gang if you're judging it like a like a high school debate competition and you know he won some points that might be right but the the problem with Andrew gang is that is central idea that virtually every problem in society is best addressed through universal basic income of a thousand dollars a month is both wrong on the merits and also it doesn't speak to any particular constituency in the Democratic Party and he has this idea that basically the problem is that our jobs are being automated away which is if it's if it's ever gonna happen it's not happening yet if that was what was happening you would see really fast productivity growth in the economic data because the robots would be doing all the things that people used to do and yet right productivity growth is actually pretty slow and then you know what what kind of Democrat is supposed to be into the entry on message if you you know if you just want things to go back to normal and you want a third Obama term he's not your guy if you're very concerned about inequality and the concentration of wealth in the hands of certain of a few powerful people of political and economic power he's not your guys you're very concerned about racial justice he's not your guy he said the sort of bizarre thing about how basically it's too late on climate change and we need to give people money so they can afford to move to higher ground I do not get at all what this suppose it gang constituency is supposed to be I've actually gone to so I went to an injury Yang rally so I can actually talk about this okay so you go to a rally right and it's a bunch of guys it's a thirty five and under many of whom like have to pause for a minute went before the answer a question like who did you vote for two thousand sixteen they often can't remember if they voted in the primary if you ask them if they very who they voted for in the general there's also this pause and then they also Hillary Clinton and I'm not convinced if that means they had to think about it whether they are voted for trump and no they shouldn't say that or if they actually like you to vote I mean I'm not convinced but I'm not convinced of any of those but what I think it does is it appeals to this kind of people who I don't wanna say they're disenfranchised because their tech guys by definition are not disenfranchised but they see themselves as disenfranchised and you know this is kind of you know vaguely lake we could rent okay higher episode on these guys right exactly taken over the internet this is not a large box and enter right now it's not all it and expect it might not even be a voting block is again as I said I'm not sure how many of them vote but you know this is a sort of stuff that looks really great on an internet chat board I mean this is like a plaque right exactly it's a platform for internet chat board it is a platform that appeals to people like engineers who lake systems with very simple rules right that's actually like I've been lot of libertarians in that camp rate is the lake extremely simple operating rules and then it's kind of set it and forget it government and I think it does appeal to those people and I should point out that while it is true that probably most the people coming out for him don't didn't vote in twenty sixteen certainly in a primary truck did pretty well in twenty sixteen by mobilizing those people because in fact even though they're not a big portion of the electorate the primary voters are not a big portion of the electorate and so if you can get people moving you can get a fairly small group to swamp primaries especially in early races that said I do not think enter Yang is gonna be present and at what I want to ask is like is that the point right so yes if you if if you're asking like why would he be doing this if it's not this kind of classic democratic lake little bit from column a little bit from column be little bit from column C. coalition building politics that is how democratic primaries usually work then yes it's it's not a good strategy but is the goal to actually become president or is the goal to get himself noticed to make himself higher profile to get his ideas on the board and I think he did that in that debate when I want to give you an opportunity to talk about anybody other than Andrea ang and Marianne Williamson I haven't you haven't gotten it yet on the on the one question what were your big takeaways went winners and losers my big take away is that the progressives won in the moderates just found it blocked they just sounded like they didn't have any answers and they sounded like they were not willing to make that the sweeping changes that I think a lot of Americans want to see I think that the progressives are right a lot of people are not happy with their health insurance as much as I hate to say bill de Blasio was right and I think that you know when you hear guys like John Delaney and Tim Ryan talk about confronting China on green tech or and the technological space at all they say things like well I'm going to hire a chief manufacturing officer it's like that's not a real plan Mister Ryan that's actually nothing you need to put your money where your mouth is China has spent ians and billions of dollars and has spent eight spent a lot of time planning their technological advancement the United States needs to at least match that effort to be able to go toe to toe with them to see what you want about the A. O. C. new green deal at least it matches the problem in scale even if you don't agree with that the actual mechanics of her plan and the moderates just sounded like they were petty like they didn't have any real solutions and that they were not up to the task of winning the next century or the next generation or whatever the next monumental thing it so here here's what I don't get about this if if the if the democratic primary electorate is is hungry for a bold progressive who wants to you know really radically re imagined what government is for once things like single payer health care that sort of thing white is Joe Biden have such a persistent poll lead I actually I thought it was it was weird how much of the analysis of this debate of the campaign generally has sort of glossed over the existence of Joe Biden there was a an op ed by Bret Stephens in The New York Times this week complaining that quote Democrats are not up to their historic responsibility unquote he's this you know conservative columnist who wants the Democrats to not be such a Liberal Party it is because he doesn't care for Donald Trump he's complaining you know you had John Delaney and Tim Ryan up there making these good points but nobody's voting for them but people are are are intending to vote for Joe Biden and you had Joe Biden up their forcefully pushing an incremental this message and pushing back on some of the ideas from the progressive candidates saying basically that if you take away employer provided health insurance the polls show that's on popular you're gonna get beaten up over that there are a lot of people who wants to insure that everyone has health insurance but who don't want to do that saying that a lot of these plans that involve big tax increases you have to tax the middle class for them and that's impractical and that that incremental is message basically saying you know we can't have maximum change here's what we did in the Obama administration was built on that that does seem to have a lot of appeal among voters in the democratic primary I point out that a lot of Biden's appeal at this point seems to be that people think he can beat trump and name name recognition in general were early yeah yeah we're we're not that early I mean to and Bernie Sanders has has very very high name recognition and had and as the champion of this message and Sanders is nowhere in the polls I kind of think of all these debates completely as prelude to September when we will finally get all of the major competitors on one stage and I think at that point you might finally see some movement among the competitors that is actual real movement and will hold as opposed to for instance after the first debate where Biden fell after fairly weak performance and then slowly crept back up as people kind of forgot about it so make in one of the things that we heard when you're having these conversations between the center candidates in the left candidates as you would talk about one of these ideas like like getting rid of employer provided health insurance and you would speak that someone would say that some popular and then the progressive candidate would say that's a Republican talking points this is not a Republican talking for it this has nothing to do with the Republic Republican talking ports your question is a Republican talking point we cannot keep with the Republican talking points on this you got to stop the thing is in what again the thing that I take from Joe Biden's poll lead is that

Top takeaways from the 1st night of the 2nd Democratic primary debate
"Tuesday night was another Democratic presidential financial debate round two part one tonight with ten candidates on the stage in Detroit broadcast on C._N._N.. And we are going to take a key moment of the debate replay it for you and then we're going to break it down with politico healthcare reporter Dan diamond author of the political pulse newsletter and the host of the pulse check podcast. Dan Thank you so much for stepping to the sidelines of politicos crowded debate night newsroom to to talk through this. I am thrilled to be here with you. Scott all right. Let's let's get right to it. Here's the moment we picked kicked out the moderators and the candidates jumped right into <hes> the biggest policy issue facing Democrats had twenty twenty the one their voters say the most important to them health care and the early exchanges between Bernie Sanders and John Delaney with the Little Bit of Elizabeth Warren will will bring her in a little later really set the tone for the whole debate so right after the opening statements C._N._N.'s Annan's Jake Tapper turn to Senator Bernie Sanders Senator Sanders. Let's start with you you support Medicare for all and ask him to explain his support for Medicare for all in terms of criticism from Congressman John Delaney rival for the Democratic nomination who said it would take private health insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and he has called the idea political suicide that will just get president trump reelected. What do you say to Congressman Delaney? You're wrong right now. We have a dysfunctional healthcare system eighty seven million uninsured ensured or underinsured five hundred thousand dollars five hundred thousand Americans every year going bankrupt because of medical bills thirty thirty thousand people dying while the healthcare industry makes tens of billions of dollars in profit five minutes away from the John is a country it called Canada it they guarantee healthcare every man woman and child as a human right they Senator Sanders Congressman glading. I'm right about this. We can create a universal healthcare system to give everyone basic healthcare for free and I have a proposal missile to do it but we don't have to go around the party of subtraction and telling half the country has private health insurance that they are health insurance is illegal. My Dad Union electrician loved. I love the healthcare he got from the I._B.. W he would never want someone to take that away all right Dan we're we're going to go back through this thought by thought a little bit but the the big picture here and then I think you're writing about your newsletter tomorrow morning. This exchange right at the top of the debates crystallized everything everything about the the the big policy debate going on in the primary and also that we really saw for the entire debate on Tuesday night. It's clearly a debate that will define the Democratic Primary Mary although I don't know if John Delaney is going to be the one making it at the end Joe Biden Her p Buddha judge might step into that role but this idea of how far to go on healthcare her the candidates want to expand coverage how they're going to do it. How many people would benefit how expensive it would be? The the details remain to be decided first first off. We have Bernie Sanders explaining his vision for Medicare for all is a human right not a privilege. I believe I will for that. The Dan Ta- talk us through this and this has become one of the defining elements of the primary so Bernie Sanders has campaigned for years on this idea of Medicare for all what's interesting is the plan he has is not actually Medicare it would be a souped up version of what Medicare currently is and that single payer plan that every American would be enrolled in the sanders campaign things that could lead to negotiating lower prices

Or are they lying with some of the things I proposed listen, I agree with many of the things Senator warranted saying, for example, but I think on many of these things. Yes, they're being dishonest. I think this Medicare for all proposal is at its core. Intellectually dishonest. They was it does take healthcare away from one hundred and fifty million Americans and forces them to get a new plan with the government. Whether it's better or not. They want the options. The other problem is if you go to every hospital in this country and ask them how it would go all the bills were paid at Medicare rates. They would all say, we would close because Medicare doesn't pay the cost of healthcare. How is that a drew science Medicare? What other thing they she has greatly floor the student debt? Well, you know, I think it's hard to just right off the student debt. I mean why don't we write off the national debt at some point? Right. I definitely think we should make student loans way more affordable. We should have free community college about.

"Now. Former Maryland congressman, John Delaney is also a guy who knows business who wants to be your next president. So what's he going to bring to the table that the other four thousand Kansas? Let's ask him, please, welcome John Delaney. Mcfaul. We doing that. We were talking about, you know, who talking about the fact that he'd probably taken formation from a foreign government comfortable uncomfortable. Right. Wrong. What do you think? Well, it's un-american I mean that's a really simple way of thinking about it. It's un-american. It's unpatriotic. I think it's the law, but putting aside the law, I second. It is completely unamerican. This is an example of he was, you know, one quarter of the man, Senator McCain was we would never have to have this conversation for the apple. But none. In the public in leadership is one quarter of John McCain at the moment. Thanks guys. But there is no do John McCain, there's far as I can tell older stepping forward that except that. No one who has the courage of their convention to actually step forward and say the right thing. Now is a moment where leaders need to step forward? Whether you're democrat Republican independent, that doesn't matter and say it is unamerican for a sitting president to make an offer to collude with one if they don't, if they don't step up. I'm looking at then are they also want American well, they're enablers? Let's put it that way. Yeah. A mosh sit though there. Yes. You're right. Yeah. I'm so let me ask you this. Because you the first democrat to announce your candidacy about was fifteen years ago, and I thought going go here. Yeah. Since then you on the hundred million. Making it. Kinda get lost. So how are you gonna distinguish yourself? What are you going to say to people that says, I'm going to help you get back to the dream that you had before your taxes got screwed over before your healthcare? Yeah. We're full you was polluted for your taxes were messed up before all of these kind of rollback started to happen. What, what do you how you going to do that? How you gonna make me both for you because I have real solutions. I don't have bumper stickers out. I have real solution. Tell us they could actually address the issues that the American people are so desperately dealing with whether it's healthcare infrastructure, fixing our broken immigration system, dealing with policy. I'm also getting run. Gimme one, she's tactile. Tell me tell me tag. Let's talk about factual since you brought up or yes. So what I would do on tax reform is really simple. I'd roll back the tax cuts, and I would do something called double the earned income tax credit. The earned income tax credit is a tax credit goes right in the pockets of hardworking Americans. I think it's should be the centerpiece democratic so break it down for me. So if you're, if you're an American, you work, and you kind of earn on the lower pay scale, you actually get a tax credit from the government. If you're a single parent with a couple of kids, this is a few thousand dollars, I wanna double that half the country can't afford five hundred dollars. Right. If we actually put a couple thousand dollars in the pockets of hardworking Americans, which is what I'm proposing it makes a huge difference in their lives. I mean my dad was an electric. So I get what it's like to grow up in a working class family, right? Where you're kind of living paycheck to paycheck, right? As opposed to giving tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans exaggerating which totally what he did. Right. He did. I mean, totally what he did imagine if we could do something, like double, I called the workers tax credit double the workers tax credit and put money in the pockets of hardworking Americans..

What might seek up on? Listen, Friday, and subscribe. We are back and the next candidate up, John Delaney. Former Maryland, congressman and Dominica somebody who's been running for president and spending more time in Iowa New Hampshire and basically any other candidate in the field Hanau on July twenty eighth twenty seventeen. So he has been running for quite some time. He's spending a ton of money a ton of his own money because he's pretty wealthy guy on his bid and in his effort to do that. He's fifty six years old. He's worth somewhere between fifty two million and almost a quarter billion dollars. This is somebody who was very wealthy before he entered congress. That's how he sort of made his way to congress because he was able to sell fund his campaigns for Maryland's sixth congressional district, and he had been there for three terms and he gave up his house seat. Right. He didn't run for reelection commit to that. He gave up his house seat in after twenty eighteen or so you listen to interview between Delaney and Laura. Oy from New Hampshire public radio. What stood sit out for me? First of all was how he sort of presented himself as compared to the rest of the democratic field. He doesn't see himself in the same ways. That may be many of them do in many ways, a different kind of democrat because I'm definitely defined by some more moderate more, centrist, I tend to think of myself as someone who's a problems over, you know, I've spent my whole career whether it's been in congress or in the private sector bringing people together and actually finding common ground and getting things done. And I think that's exactly what we need today. Because there's so many things we should've already dealt with in our in our country in our society, we need someone who actually wants to lead us around a conversation about some of the things we agree with each other on and actually make progress on those issues to help the American people, but also to help us rethink our future because the future we're leaving our kids right now is not the one we want to leave them. You know, it strikes me listening to him that even within the Democratic Party that some of the candidates might have. A problem that we talked about during the general election last year, which is making the case for yourself in a negative versus a positive way. What he saying here is I am not like those other guys. But in this massive field, you still have to make a positive case for yourself. Okay. I'm not like the other guys who are you? What is your main thing? Yeah. Well, he makes plenty of points about for an affirmative case for himself. Certainly he was asked to sort of differentiate himself and asked about this, quote that he had made about being sort of socialist versus capitalist in this campaign..

"They are extremely American people just won't accept those ideas. Well, you know, what's happening over three years all of those ideas and many more part of the political mainstream. You're saying the party came your way. Well, I don't want to say that. I think most people would say that. Cop. I mean, I wouldn't say that. But but it's the scientific consensus. I mean that is an amazing statement. And completely true statement. You know, I've talked about twenty thirteen when he did Medicare for all euro co-sponsors. Now, everyone in the field pretty much agrees with that. I'll give you one person who doesn't though John Delaney. Now, I know you guys have follow John Delaney's campaign closely, but he has made it to all ninety nine counties in Iowa already. That's because he started running. I believe it was twenty six years ago. He started running he was he was the first person in the field undulating, isn't he the guy twenty eight Frazier's, dad? I don't know. Delaney was a former congressperson from Maryland and businessman, and he is in the race and had been in there for while pulling it about one percent right now he is running as the most conservative democrat in the race. His he was on CNN this morning his distinctions with he's calling out socialism. He's saying, look, I'm not a socialist. I don't want socialism capitalism is the greatest job creator, the engine of job creation in human history. He saying those types of things, and you could see those statements occasionally from even Barack Obama back in the day. He would occasionally make a speech and tip the tip had a little bit towards capitalism. Even though I don't think he was ever a big believer in it. But the two policies he brought up as diff differentiating himself from the rest of the field. We're really interesting to show illustrate Bernie Sanders point was Medicare for all he criticized Medicare for all he said, you know, what that's not right. We shouldn't have that. And let me you know, I have a better. Plan a great plan for healthcare. What we need to do is have a basically a public option low cost basic care for everybody and think about this. He's the most right wing of the Democrats, the most moderate of the Democrats that puts him to the right of Barack Obama as a president because ObamaCare did not he was basically arguing for ObamaCare, plus a public option, which is where Obama ran in two thousand eight option, meaning a government insurance plan the governor insurance plans, so so now believe me, I think it's a terrible plan. But I mean, I'm just talking about the movement of this party. He is to the right of where Barack Obama was president the same thing. I'll give you wear Barack Obama was as a chasm candidate. So and then one more thing excuse me. He's left of and the other one I'll give you was was a global warming. He said, oh, you know, what this green new deal is crazy. This is John Delaney. It's too. It's too much all give you just a carbon tax gonna be a great carbon tax. That's something that Barack Obama didn't even propose that actual plan. Again, his the most right person in the democratic primary is to the left of Barack Obama as a candidate. And as president that is where this party is the entire field is to the left of Barack Obama and some rock can't even see from where he is. That is an amazing change in a very common in the last three years that timeframe that it happened. And what's so terrifying? All right back in a minute. So bitter guy called me creep. Win. He said.

"Maybe in the last ten years, as you know, Senator marine Alexander have a really good proposal, actually improve it. And I just think it would be amazing of president. I'd states at their inauguration. Looked out the American people and said, I represent everyone you with voted for me or not and approve it, my first hundred day agenda, are these things things that you're good minded democrat and Republican members have been working on that doesn't mean we're going to not try to do some big things, but we're going to actually start getting some of these things done with there's broad support. Among you, the American people, and I think that approach can start getting it that issue because you're actually taking the case to the American people, and you're not forcing them into their political camps out of the. Blocks. What happens I think is because of the polarizing effect of hyper partisan, politics, the way, it is now that grinds everything to halt. And then the special interests can float on top of that and pick their spots to get little things done that enormously benefit them. You see what I mean? So there's there's no doubt about that. I would only. That there are there legitimate philosophical differences between the parties and getting at some of these really big issues that you're talking about is not necessarily going to neatly fit into a bipartisan rubric. So nor remember my first, by the way, is I I think that people are tired of Washington and tired of. Yes. Tired of gridlock. And but I think they're also tired of a system that they think lends itself to incremental ISM and at a time when we need really big ideas and really big answers. And so you're going to have to marry those two concepts in this process, or I think you're gonna run into skeptical damage, but here's an example, so climate change, which is a big issue. I, you know, I have the only bipartisan carbon tax Bill in congress. That's right. A bipartisan. Carbon tax Bill and it can work, right? It's got good Republicans support. I think a carbon tax Bill can ultimately get passed in the congress where you have to structure it, right? You got take all the revenues and give it right back to the American people. You can't keep the revenues for other pet projects like France tried to do. I mean, France put a carbon tax in place. Right. Took the revenues and cut corporate taxes with it. You know, obviously, the citizens think that's terrible. Matt Krohn was almost never heard from again. I mean, it was the dumbest idea you could possibly put forth. We have you're gonna have a regressive tax on hardworking French citizens and use the money to cut corporate tax rates, right which benefit one percent of the country. As compared to what I've proposed which is you put a price on carbon. And you take a hundred percent of the revenues and you put in a lock box and you dividend back. The American people, you know, in a progressive way tax itself is, but there's an example of something that can accent difference. But right now, some people in the party, you're saying owner that's not good enough. We need to move the goal posts away from carbon tax because that's not good enough. And my answer to them is climate is not a linear problem. It's an exponential. Right. Right. Everyday you fight and don't make progress. Right. You're creating such a huge hurdle for you. I was I was I got a call that incremental. I don't think it's incremental. I the question is is is if it's a chief -able, I I was in the congress. I mean, I was in the White House when the president tried to pass a Bill that put a price on carbon. And and we we bite twisting arms in democratic house. We rebel to get it out of the house, and it never got a hearing in a Democratic Senate. So these things become more complex, but I. They start with enthusiasm. Right. You have to have that. And I appreciate yours. Congressman, John Delaney. Former congressman John Delaney have fun in Iowa in New Hampshire. I look forward to seeing along. Thank you for listening.

"Because a lot of biases that exist. In society may be hard coded into these programs and national security is huge issue. I mean, pretty soon in a year or two people be able to take your face, your voice, my face, my voice, and impose it into completely realistic videoclips, we're we're doing things or saying things we have never said or even thought. And so just a math is highly unlikely that someone's gonna expropriate my face, but I appreciate you suggesting you'd be surprised, but think about how destabilizing that's gonna be right to the political discourse in this country. Yes. If I mean, listen, I share your view that I think that these changes are coming rapidly and more rapidly all the time, it's and if we don't have a strategy as a country for dealing with them, we are going to very quickly pay enormous. It's arguably the only thing we talking. About right. If you actually were sitting here and saying, okay, what really matters you'd say the future of work, and how we make sure we have enough good paying jobs countries of people can support their families and that kids have opportunities. What are we got our education system? What are we gotta do to ensure that people invest in communities that haven't been invest in? What do we gotta do to give people that basic kind of package that they need to have shot on life? What are we going to from national security perspective? What are we going to do from a privacy perspective? And what are we going to do from almost a programming perspective to ensure that these changes unfold in a way, that's as beneficial to our country as possible if we spend the next twenty years, fighting, politically and not doing things there's no question these things are gonna unfold badly for the vast majority of American people, but with every single one of these issues, there's an opportunity turn it significantly and turn them into benefits for a lot of American. And that to me is the question for the. Mercante people in the twenty twenty election, which do you want someone who actually has a plan to address these things? Yeah. I think the other question is the ability to execute on a plan in a Washington that is not just riven by partisan differences. But is completely overrun by special interests play an enormous role, as you know, you're on the financial services committee. So you know, that the, you know, the there it is not myth to say that special interests, and lobbyists leverage and incredible amount of influence in our process. And I don't know how you execute anything that is ambitious without confronting that. Well, and part you gotta take the case to the American people. I mean, why the things I've called for is, you know, as president my first hundred days to only do proposals that currently have significant bipartisan support in the congress as you. And I. Both know David there's a lot of things in the congress from criminal Justice reform, Timothy Gration reform to infrastructure policy to something I've been really passionate about which is national service. There's a lot of big ideas in the congress that currently enjoy bipartisan support even things like the Affordable Care Act, which has become the biggest lighting, Ron politics..

"You're out of the gateway early on this. So you must have either the Trump presidency persuaded you should run for president or. Or you just decided that congress wasn't the place to make the biggest difference for you. So I've actually loved congress, despite the fact that what a lot of people say about congress. I think it's been an amazing privilege to serve in congress. I've made some amazing friendships, and I've been very impressed with the people I've served with. So I've actually I totally enjoyed my experience congress and giving up my seat was was a hard decision to make. But I felt like it was the right thing to do if I'm going to dedicate myself fully to running for president. We never thought about running for president prior to Hillary Clinton losing. Why do I expected her to be the president? And I expected me to be in some capacity, helping her in that role in the congress or maybe who knows what else that's what I thought was going to happen. But after Hillary one, my wife, and I sat down and said, listen, we gotta start thinking differently about everything, and what we really care about which is restoring since unity and common purpose to this country, actually solving problems, which sometimes involves finding common ground and developing compromise with people thinking about the future, and how all this technological innovations changing everything and restoring a sense of almost moral aspiration to our politics where we actually try to do things to build a, you know, a better and more just future we believe that's exactly what the country's looking for right now. And I felt like it wasn't clear to anyone who's going to run for president on that. And that do it, and well, you have a lot of company. Yes. I haven't cleared the field. I've no better known figures than your so first of all, but that's why I got an early right? 'cause I think I'm the right person for the job and have the right vision. Because really, I know why I'm running right? What I really believe in terms of what our next president should be and how they should can duck themselves and how they can get at the central question facing this country, which is how terribly divided we are and how America's increasingly been pitted against American. I am running exactly to address that issue. So I know why I'm running. So I think I'm the right person for the job and other I'd vision, but not enough people know who I am to your point. That's why I entered the race wurley and how much you spent a fair amount of your own money on your previous races. This is a far more expensive. Yes, proposition are you prepared to sell finance to a large degree here? So on the prepared to invest heavily in my campaign in my prior races. For congress. I raised about half the money and I invested about half. And that's probably what we'll do between now and the Iowa caucus in the New Hampshire primary, and we're hoping we're planning on doing very well in those two things. And after that, I suspect will most of the campaign will be funded by individual donations. We're not taking corporate PACS right Ziam. The presence of all these candidates who are who are well known, and we clearly are going to hear for more in the coming weeks. I think we've had three or four enter the race this week as we talked comma Harris today Elizabeth Warren has gotten into the race who in Castro has gotten into race care Ston Jila brand has gotten into the race. And we know that there are more pages to turn I've been in this process, and I know how difficult it is to break through and how to someone alike, you breakthrough and how hospitable do think the Democratic Party is going to be at this juncture to someone with your background someone who's basically been in finance most of most of your business life. Taiwan Israel, John about financial engineering and Wall Street, and so.

"I kind of understood what I was getting into legislative role. I'm not one of these people who come from business thinks government should run like a business all the time. I think there's definitely things that the private sector does. Well, that would be good to incorporate into government more a notion of best practices and trying to incorporate more innovation, you know, a battle of ideas, which really takes place, very well in the private economy and not so well in the in the in the public sector, but at the end of the day, I think I pretty rapidly adapted to the notion that government is different and different stakeholders and you have different goals in in the private sector. You have multiple stakeholders. I mean, I always thought of it that way I had my shareholders, but aside employs in my clients. But in the government sector, you know, your stakeholders are really the society as a whole in the world as a whole one we should be working hard to build a more, just and prosperous and secure future. And it's just a different set of stakeholders and a different set of objectives. Now. A, you know, watch Donald Trump on the apprentice. So I know that he was an Uber businessman. How do you as a businessman first of all I see ruined right? As he ruined the notion of the businessman president, and how do you react to him as someone who sort of brandishes his experience as a businessman as a credential for leadership? So I don't think of Donald Trump is a business leader when I think of business leaders, I think of people who innovate create jobs higher the best and the brightest pay their bills, right and try to invest in their communities. That's kind of what I think of is great business leaders. I think Donald Trump was very successful business promoter. He was very good at promoting his name and getting licensing revenues Ford. But Diddy innovate now did he hire the best and the brightest? My senses, he engages in massive amounts of nepotism, which is family the opposite of what business people. Did. He pays bills. Now, he left bankruptcies behind him. Did you invest in this communities? No, I don't see any evidence a really charitable work by the Trump organization. So I just think he's not a business leaders at business promoters. I've you him something entirely different. I also think intervene because someone. Might raise and probably should that up. He does have the he did have this foundation that whether he contributed to it or not the gave out charitable contributions and one of which went to years ago to an organization that my wife runs called citizens United for research and epilepsy. We were doing this big thing on TV to raise money for epilepsy research. So I just want noted that's fine. I've waited this. I'm into my three hundred three hundred something episodes here, you're enough. I've yet noted that. But I want to note it now. But I also think look at I think we shouldn't elect someone to be the president nights. We've never done public service or served in government. I think about what I understand about how the federal government works now compared to what I did. When I ran for office the first time, I mean, I saw in your office. Malcolm, glad wells book, the outliers and in that book, it talks about how you have to basically spend ten thousand hours becoming an expert at it. Something. But once you spend ten ten thousand hours, you become pretty good that's four or five or six years of work, depending on which work you do. So do I think it works out perfectly because that's just about how long you spent there. That's right. So do I think we should hire a business person who's never done public service or never served a government? Absolutely not. So I think he's ruined that model, but when I talked to voters in Iowa New Hampshire wherever I go. And I talk about my background is a blue-collar kid and someone who's been successful entrepreneur and someone who's now rolled up their sleeves. That sounds like the kind of background that. I think a lot of people are looking for you decided to run for president some time ago because you you've you've spent how how many times have you been to Iowa in the last twenty one to an you..

"Source, and I felt like we needed that in light of the financial crisis. It was failing in part because it had some exposure was a Bank that was the it was a Bank in California that own the fifth largest subprime mortgage company in the country. And we didn't buy that. The regulators sold that to someone else, and we bought the branches and clean Bank, basically. And then we merged our company into it. And then, and we you know that worked out very well. In fact, we got an award from the Obama administration something called the Bank enterprise award for lending to disadvantaged communities, and you and then you had one more turn of the wheel this alliance partners. That was just something I had invested in when I see which was a a effectively cooperative to help community. Now. What point did you say I'm going to run for office? So I thought about in two thousand six, but I didn't think it was the right time to leave my company, and there was an open Senate seat in Maryland. Why did you think about it? 'cause I always wanted to you know, I shouldn't say always wanna do. But once I started again volved in community service and philanthropic work, I April, and I realized that that's where we were getting what felt like all the rewards in our life, but one doesn't have to run for public. No to do it. But. I just felt like I had developed set of leadership skills that were useful public office. And I thought my understanding of the private economy, and how it works having spent all this time working closely with thousands of small to mid size businesses, all of the country was something that was really needed in government because the policies that I saw coming out of the government. I didn't see his very conducive to creating that type of job growth. So I thought I had something to offer I enjoy leadership position and taking on new challenges and solving problems. And there are so many things I saw about how our government functioned that. I thought I could add a lot of Allieu on you ran for congress in two thousand twelve and you've got elected to a Seton Maryland of formerly formerly hill by Republican been redistricted was a little more hospitable to Democrats in your able to win that seat. And you just finished your third term you've left congress. How does one make the transition from being an executive? And having affect of control to being a member of congress, a junior member of congress and having virtually no control. Well, it it was that transition and it was frustrating time. There's no question about that. But I think pretty early on. I realized that. It's different at the end of the day..

"So you'll effectively end up the same place. You are right, but but you'll be tethered impart to this now government system. So what I think my plan is achievable is not only have I figured out how to pay for it. But it also, and you know, from that basic government package cost. Well, you again, it depends for the person who's getting it put for the the for the government as a whole. So you're solving for about twenty or thirty million people who don't have healthcare because a lot of it would basically fill in the seems. So, you know, you're talking about four or five hundred billion dollars over ten years, which is about to X what the corporate deductability exemption is right or deduction. So you start you start seeing how you're getting there. But what I think we learned at the Affordable Care Act. You wanna roll at universal health care system in a way that allows people to largely keep their healthcare. And that's what I think this does. Well, it would allow them to supplement their healthcare, but not necessarily keep the policy that again, if you go back to to your firm here, let's say you're people have Aetna. I think the way would work is Aetna would basically have the quote, major medical part of the plan would be the government. They put this rapper on top of it and sell a supplemental. So if you had a you would probably have basically had the same plan, but depending how your medical costs go some of it would be paid for through the government plan, which is embedded in your plan. So you probably would keep your same and how the insurance industry react to that. You know, I think the insurance industry would view themselves as now being in the supplemental insurance business like they are with Medicare. And I think they'd be you know, I mean, they probably end up being fewer insurance companies, but you'd have a government market, and then you have a private market that floats on top. You think that it's inevitable that we're going to have some. Sort of significant shift like this feels like there's a lot of momentum behind it. Now, you know, it used to be considered a radical notion, but that not so anymore. If you look at polling what we're not gonna do is throw out the entire US healthcare system and start with a new system. Right that I'm pretty sure we're not going to do. And if we insist that is what the goal is. Then we will never get anything done. I think but what I think we can do is if you think about what the Affordable Care acted. It's core at its core that I think was the most transformative was Medicaid expansion. Right. That Jesse was quantitive part. It did a lot of other positive things. That are no question. Good valid but Medicaid expansion. And so what I'm really talking about is the next evolution of that. Did a lot of good for those in states where they governors were willing to governors and legislatures. We're willing to expand it. So you sold this business. You did very well with it. And then you you start at a new business called capital source took a year off my wife, and I started foundation we got involved in community service and philanthropy, which actually ultimately led to me running for office. We always kind of thought of our life as a third learning a third earning a third serving but back, then I was I guess I was we're just having our sound like it's Benneteau in the earning to get that out of the way. Well, a third. And so, but I still have the entrepreneurial. But so and what I had observed from my prior businesses that there was a real gap for small businesses. In other words, a lot of small businesses grow really fast and the outgrow their community banks, but they're too small for big banks. So I basically built a business to take care.

"Todd was job because he had one job for sixty years. But for most Americans, I think my kids might have ten jobs. Right. So why in the world is a matter of good economics? Would we ever create a system where the one of the most important things you get out of your job? So this was a this. This this grew out of World War Two when? Domain sense at the time. Yeah. But it's an intense control we had wage controls. That's right. And again, everything makes sense at the time when you go back and most of the things we have today that seem really stupid when you actually look at where they came from. You're like, well that actually made sense. But the problem is when I talked about before the world's changed so fast, and we didn't we didn't update eighties institutions including healthcare. So clearly what I think should be the model for healthcare in this country. Is everyone should get healthcare is a right? A basic package kind of people have with Medicare, and then they should be able to buy supplemental plans on top of that. So if they wanna digital bells and whistles or things like that they can buy that in the private market, but everyone has a basic portable government healthcare system that they get a right, and you can pay for a system like that or begin to pay for system like that of by D linking healthcare from employment. In other words, taking away the corporate deductability of healthcare. We actually got rid of that then all corporations would basically stop offering Healthcare's a benef-. They might do things to help negotiate group deals for their employees and provide some benefits, but it would fundamentally change in tation. And then you'd have a system where everyone gets a basic healthcare plan when they're born till they're sixty five and if they want supplementals they can get that. And then once it turned sixty five they get Medicare. So that to me would fundamentally change a lot of. So how does this differ from you know, we hear this big? I'm confused about all of this. Coverage reporting on to bait over Medicare for all. Because when you talk to Democrats, they basically somewhere in the same place, and but this certainly sounds like a version of Medicare for all. Well, the reason I'm not for Medicare for all as opposed to what I just described. I think Medicare actually works. It's one of the only parts of the healthcare system that really works. Not perfect. But it works pretty well. And so I don't think one we're trying to fix the problems with healthcare. I don't think we should mess up. What's working? I also think if we go to all the seniors in this country who have largely paid for their Medicare and say we're gonna take it and give it to everyone else. Just as a matter of politics. That's not necessarily a great idea. I would much rather create a new system for everyone who's not Medicare eligible I'd roll Medicaid into that. And create a system that feels a lot like Medicare basic system is a right with your ability to buy supplementals, which is basically just how Medicare. Works and then maybe in fifty years they can merge together. But what you're describing is a pretty significant shift, and the argument has been against it. I mean, I'm for some version of this. I think it's nuts that we're the only country developed economy in the world that doesn't have some sort of government healthcare program. But it's not a significant thing shift is you think 'cause if you think about leaving Medicare along, and if you think you're about starting a new program that you roll medicating because Medicaid, the largest number me program out there. And if you think about a situation where people can basically, so let's say at your firm here you offer at healthcare, and they like it under my system. What would happen is all your ploys would get basic government plan? They probably want more of that more than just that. But they get a basic plan. You would no longer get into duck Sion's you'd say. Out of that business. But what I will do is go to Aetna and negotiate a group rate for you all to buy the supplemental..

"It became a national business. I took it public in nineteen Ninety-six. I think I was the youngest CEO and the history of the new York Stock Exchange at the time. And then I ran that business to sold. And what did you learn about healthcare from that business? Well, I learned healthcare is really three things. It's. Access quality and cost. So I think the problem we have in our healthcare debate. Now is we talk exclusively about access, which I'm all for universal healthcare and having universal access because then it gets a right of every American, but as much of the healthcare debate should be about quality and cost because healthcare costs. I mean, I saw how we were reimbursing healthcare services in that business. And the the fact that it really didn't have any correlation with quality or cost or outcomes. And it really is not like anything else in the in the business world, right? We're pretty much everything is based on the quality of your results where in the US healthcare system. There's almost none of that four character introduce some of those things, but there's a real lack of alignment in healthcare policy. It's also a different kind of thing that you know, other commodities you can. Shop around and comparison shop and maybe four go if if you don't like the price Healthcare's different because if you're having a gall bladder attack, you're not sitting on your computer comparison shopping your ambulance hospital. And I, you know, I always find that, you know, the the notion that the market will solve the healthcare problem or the healthcare challenge a little bit hard to accept given the nature of healthcare. Right. Well, it, you know, Healthcare's one six the economy was its own country would be the largest countries in the world. So it's it's a very big complicated system with lots of different things, and there's clearly the emergency area that you're talking about the, you know, responding to a condition, but I think at the the root cause problem with healthcare costs in this country is the fact that so much of linked to employment. That's a really bad model b. You know, my dad was a unilateral, and maybe it made sense for him to have is healthcare..

"We actually finally built infrastructure with the disproportionate allocation if you doubled earned income tax credit for people living these communities those four. Right there. That's simple agenda incentives for private investment getting infrastructure going creating an incentive for government contracts to locate and then doing things to make it easier to hire workers, but the workers being able to afford a decent standard of living those four things together, they wouldn't turn around every community in this country, but they turn around a huge numbers of them. And we'd be looking at a totally different map in terms of where jobs are being created in. I think a relatively short period time. These are the things is president hasn't done. Right. So when he talks to people about what he's going to do for them. I mean, I just drove from New Jersey out to Iowa took my dad's pickup trucks, I'm gonna drive it around Iowa. And I drove past Lordstown. We're five thousand people are losing their job. And you've got five thousand people men and women at home trying to explain to their kids why they're not working and trying to think about okay, what's going to replace the job that I used to have which paid me a really good wage and supported my family. And so we gotta have real policies that actually create jobs in these places, but we really have to do stuff fighting politically and actually start getting some of this done because the cost of doing nothing is not nothing for huge parts of the country. Right. Huge parts of the country of paid a huge price because for or political fighting. We haven't done the basic things we should have done to update our society and the institutions in the laws and the tax incentives, turn courage, real investments in parts countries. Because when I go to small towns in Iowa, it's the number one thing people say to me, which is will might children or my grandkids be able to have a job in this town, right? And they look around and they don't think so. Right. And and they may well be right. And they maybe we'll be right. So that to me is incredibly important issue. It's it's a issue the president kind of ran on and he has done anything about. But it's the reason people feel the way they do the other part of your biography that relates to this discussion is the fact that your dad was in a union for sixty years that you said the union provided scholarship money, so that you could go to college the during this period of rapid change that you've spoken about we've seen essentially that the dismantlement of the labor movement that lifted up the middle class, and partly it's because of of global competition, and the fact that with markets with labor markets now available in other countries where there weren't where there was an organized labor where labor was cheaper. You saw the kinds of moves that may. Tag mate? Is that a is reviled? How do you? How do do a workers regain a voice in this economy? That's increasingly being determined by publicly publicly traded companies where the quarterly report is we used to have companies where the owners felt a sense of investment in their employees and vice versa, and that's less. So now, so we we obviously need to do things to make it easier in my opinion for workers to organize and so supporting unions at the local level. So they have the ability to organize and dealing with that federally where the laws are relevant, but also making sure in my opinion states should have a legal framework where people can organize and this movement for these quote, right right to work laws..

"And there are hundreds of people in the in the in the appeal waiting for to get there. Probably six seconds in front of the judge. And my grandfather used to tell the story around the thanksgiving table, the judge walked in and he was putting on his robe. And my grandfather saw that the judge had one arm as well. Wow. And that's really the only reason he was leading the country because the one armed judge lead in the one armed boy and told him to make something his life. So he went on to settle in Jersey City and he worked in the Joseph Dixon pencil factory for his whole life, which was right there in Jersey City. And so that was my grandfather on my mother, and then my grandfather on my father's side was a dockworker in Jersey City, but they all move to woodridge, which is where I was born. And. Your dad was a union electricity. Right. He's a sixty year member of the international brotherhood of electrical workers, which he loved it. And he was so he he loved being election. He loved being in the union. He loved his union buddies. And you know that union created a good life Ross. And in fact, when I went to college I went to Columbia University. I had a scholarship from the w which allowed me to go they paid for half my tuition, I it was incredibly hard working strongest person I ever knew my dad was the kind of person who could like turn a rusty boat with his bare hands, and and did you go out on his rounds with him all the time? It was one of the thrills. When I was a kid. I would kind of get in his pickup truck. You always had a pickup truck and go to his job sites. You know, he used to go Saturday mornings kinda check them out. And there were a lot of big industrial projects going on in New Jersey at the time he worked most of his career at the Meadowlands. So I he was working on giant stadium. These to be called giant stadium then the race track. And then the Rena and that actually was very transformative projects he'd been out of work for about a year in the early seventies. And then they they basically redevelop the whole Meadowlands, and and he started working again any work there pretty much most of my growing up when you cool for me as a kid get in his pickup truck, go down and watch them building a stadium. Do you? Remember when he was out of work. I do I do it was it was nearly seventy and it was about eighteen months. I mean, he will do some side jobs, but it was really slow. And that was pretty the only time it was at work were there was there anxiety around that. Yeah. You could feel. I was a I was eight nine years old. But it was. Yeah. I still remember the time because he would get up and try to figure out what to do and a bunch of he and his buddies would do odd-jobs to make some extra money, and he kept himself busy. He was always working. I think the. Thing we often miss in. This discussion about about work is not that it's more than a paycheck. It's the dignity of it. The notion of waking up and not having something to do. Right. Not not contributing not being part of something is a really really soul crushing experience. So my dad took great pride in his work. And you know, he had so many relationships from it. I remember he passed away two years ago. And I remember at his at his funeral. We had awake in a little kind of small funeral home and only had one viewing room in the wake was at three o'clock. And I was there with my sister, and my mom and our family and to forty five I go out to the front of the funeral home. And there's a line of about sixty eighty five year old guys wind up there all his buddies from the for more. Yeah. There were there were, you know, electrons or plumbers or carpenters one of the made a joke that there was a lot of barstools empty in the local town. So all these I used to hang out with them all the time. He had buddies who were not only electric, plumbers carpenters, Masons and for.

"Twenty. Oh god. Can you even imagine? We're talking about twenty twenty the presidential race already. But you know, these candidates. Hey, they want it to be and they were a bit ury. They ran for president. I mean, all the ego maniac who were involved in American politics today. Probably always. But especially these days and a democrat field is filling up let's see for twenty twenty. We got Julian Castro, the former HUD secretary very unimpressive young person, but he's Latino so we have to pay attention to him. Green light him all the way through just because we want to see a Latin guy on the on the platform there that makes everybody feel good, John Delaney. Who the heck is that a former congressman from is from Maryland. Never heard of you should I have heard of him. I cover politics pretty closely. I've never heard of John Delaney. But you know, what? Hey, John Delaney's jumping into the field for the Democrats Tulsi Gabbard a congress person from. Hawaii who is? An interesting character. But again, what are these what are these individual congress people doing jumping into the race for president? I mean are they aware? They're kind of a dime. A dozen. No offense to somebody who's gotten into congress. But there's nothing super special about you just because you were in the house of representatives. It's a pretty small district that you wind up representing and most of them have gotten any legislation through anyway. So I don't know why we would pay any attention to these guys, but they want they want the attention. And then let me see Richard oheka is that I'm saying that. Former West Virginia state Senator not even not even US Senator former state Senator Richard disembark that name down. Maybe there's something really remarkable about our our buddy Richard over in West Virginia that we should pay attention to now there's probably some dogcatchers out there who might think that they could do a good job of fronting the federal government as well. If we're going to go to state senators in West Virginia as possible. I know there's absolutely ridiculous. I may as well run for president. And we've got our reality stars president. So why not you at least he's a billionaire who's run a couple of huge corporations. But I mean just random random stuff. And I don't know. I think pretty highly myself. So maybe I should do it. Now, we've got an announcement scheduled. We think from Kamala Harris, the new Senator from the state of California US Senator. So at least I'll give her credit for winning in one of the largest states in the United States and then Marianne Williamson. I'm not familiar with Marian. Apparently, she is a spiritual teacher from California. So hey, let's all just jump in to this. Jay inslee. The governor of the state of Washington is apparently launching an exploratory committee of sorts Elizabeth Warren, of course, who had that beer with her husband. Oh, look, my wife is here in the kitchen. How what a surprise would. I'm gonna get me a beer. I mean that was cringe-worthy. She really is. So awkward. She should just stop trying to be likeable and look competent because that may be her selling point. I mean, you you're kind of a schoolmarm there's nothing sexually appealing about you. There's nothing visually appealing about you. There's nothing I would not want to hang out with Elizabeth Warren. Would you? But she might be able to sell herself on the competence thing. Although her campaign or exploratory efforts here are looking less than competent. So I'm not sure what to make of that. But and don't call me a sexist for saying there's nothing sexual about it. I mean, everybody used to talk about how Bill Clinton was really good-looking, George W Bush was so good looking believe it or not there's some people have thought that. So it cuts both ways, I know everybody wants to immediately go to the whole sexist thing. But let's face it. We don't have ugly people running in general six fifty here.
