"An important priority more than sixty two percent support. Biden's build back better proposal which is outlined in the budget resolution and voters would be less likely less likely by thirteen point margin to vote for a candidate for congress who opposes the bill back better agenda aka the budget resolution Those are some pretty pretty good numbers for biden and the plan In those districts of people who decided to try to tank it because they want the vote on the infrastructure bill. I you and the people who are call themselves by democrats and then run on tanking the by agenda those people those people those people. What did you think of Sean patrick maloney chair of the d triple c apparently calling The members of this group to warn them that putting the majority at risk which they took as a fundraising threat just once again. The whole thing is so stupid right like if you. You're the difference in your ability to do the things you claim to care about when you run for congress between being the majority and the minority is everything right you can do almost nothing in the minority other than vote no repeatedly and so you have these members here who claim to care about all these things at infrastructure and roads and bridges and all of that putting the majority at risk for no real reason. I think what. I think is interesting about this. In wyatt played out differently as you pointed out. The typically moderate groups backed the progressive in pelosi on this play not the moderates and that is the opposite of how it used to go and think it says a couple of things but first is what you pointed out for the data for progress and climb opole is. This is a popular and not polarizing agenda people. This is not the aca which is healthcare and therefore for by definition personal polarizing. It's not bill. Clinton one thousand nine hundred three budget. That had an energy tax in that was devastating. The democrats in fossil fuel producing states. So it's popular are also shows the power of biden's moderate brand right the fact that it's joe biden's agenda is a signal to voters including voters who do not love joe biden that this is something different than the radical socialist democrats to hear about on fox news bernie sanders. Afc and it's sort of. I think it's really interesting. Provides actually buying a lot of leverage and sort of running room as we go forward to push a very progressive agenda. Because the fact that it's joe biden's it gives it some like brand equity with a set of voters that gives these numbers in these Moderate or vulnerable or purplish districts. I think it's it says something about you've talked about this a lot. The difference between Being a moderate and being a centrist. Can you talk about that a little bit being a moderate you of a set of ideological principles and policy preferences that are closer to the center. It could be i support. A public option not medicare for all i suppose for increasing the corporate tax rate x. But not us. But i don't support a wealth tax. You have a set of moderate principles that guide your decision making and you're going to be for those whether they are the policy of the entire democratic caucus or a part of the democratic caucus. Essential centrism is not an ideology. It's an identity. What it means. Is that you position yourselves in the somewhere. A few steps closer to the center from where your party has wherever your party is right whether that is a more centrist party of the nineties or early two thousands or a much more progressive party in its moderates care about policy. Centrists care about performance. Demonstrating that you want to be. Seen they wanna be seen as centrist. Yes and i thought it's just it's what they believe in terms of policy. Here's an example. I think helps make sense is amy. Klobuchar is a moderate. She ran for. President of the moderate is a long history of being a moderate cureton. Cinema is a centrist. Whatever if she sees a progressive parade forming somewhere. She goes looking to rain on it but globalstar a longtime moderate adjusts her positions based on the reality on the ground. She is for this bill. She is has changed mission on the filibuster but remains in their things. She will not do and she and is not. She's not moving based on where the polls around her move and it's i think it's a really really important distinction because we want moderates in our party even if there were. We need moderates to win. And a lot of districts around the country just because of the political makeup of america and how many rural and exit district's there are that have a lot of you know independent. Voters are republican voters. But centrists are the ones who actually make the part of the problem worse because they're running against the democrats have republicans running against the democrats in central run against the democrats. And that's how you lose. Yeah that that is exactly well. Let's talk about what happens now because I have a feeling this isn't the last we've heard from the centrist Over in the senate. Joe mansion in care cinema weighed in with statements of support for their house. Colleagues of this this week Cinema even reiterated that. She's not voting for a plan that costs three point. Five trillion dollars mentioned his also said something similar so how to biden schumer in pelosi. Land this plane and indeed think. This week's events made their jobs harder. Easier or no change. I think it's simple. I don't think it made it harder. I think it just revealed how challenging this is right in a world with such narrow margins sort of always thinking about what is dramatic care about. What is curious about what the this group of ten members approved as any person. Any house member can go five friends and become joe manchin for a day right. They have the ability to block. Anything i think. He just revealed the difficulties. It always exists in trying to pass a bill with margins this narrow and such great ideological diversity within the caucus so it's always going to be hard. I was trying to think about how this plays out. If there's going to be a bill it's gonna come from the senate in by definition that bill will have the sign off of bernie sanders and elizabeth warren on the left in curious incident. Madrid mentioned on the right. That bill's going to come to the house and i sort of is a really room to the right of joe. Manchin a state that trump won by nearly forty points for to try to say this. Like i cannot support this. Bill is progressive. wild bill. That joe manchin this for that seems really hard. No yeah no. I think i think is the action now moves to the senate for sure ended on the left to same thing like like is bernie. Sanders going to sign off on his committee. He's helping write it. Is he going to sign off on a bill that is too mushy middle for the congressional progressive caucus or the squad. That seems unlikely to meet. You really have to figure out what is the one thing that those fifty senate democrats can agree on. And then i think we should be in an okay place in the house. There was obviously as this last week. There's always the capacity for some troublemakers by we. The the big work is gonna happen in the senate. We've been saying this throughout this whole process but again like nothing goes anywhere unless Joe mansion and bernie sanders agree on it in the house. You can say oh and josh heimer half degree. All these democrats have to get together on every detail of this plan which is why it is always unhelpful to make a big public stink over your problems with the bill like this Gang of moderates or this gang of centrists did this week could county..

"Signs for twenty twenty two in california center. Alex padilla stops by the office to chat with tommy and me about the california recall voting rights and more. But i check out this week's hysteria where legendary tv comedy writer and good friend of the pod. Jen statsky joins aaron and eliza to discuss her hit. Hbo series hacks. One of my favorite shows over the last few years New episodes of hysteria drop every thursday. So check it out. Also if you are a registered voter in the state of california listen up check. Your mail for a recall ballot. Fill it out. Return it by september fourteenth. If you don't want california controlled by a radical right wing. Republican vote no on question. One should governor newsom beer called and leave question to blank according to the newsom campaign and please note what we just said was not authorized by candidate or committee controlled by a candidate. Dan did you have to say that. That is something that. I've been told that i need to say yeah. I do what people tell me anyway. Visit votes save. America dot com slash california to learn more all right. Let's get to the news. Is it possible to outmaneuver house speaker. Nancy pelosi this week. New jersey congressman. Josh god heimer and nine other centers. Democrats decided to fuck around and find out. After threatening for days to vote against joe biden's economic plan unless pelosi. I held a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill the group that no labels nicknamed the mod squad caved allowing the three point five trillion dollar budget resolution to pass with all two hundred and twenty house democrats. What they got in return was a promise from pelosi to put the infrastructure bill on the floor by september twenty seventh even though host progressives continued to say that they won't vote for that bill unless the full budget passes the senate and comes to the house. Dan did the problem solver. Solve any problems here or was this just a huge waste of. Everyone's time the only problem that i think was solved here with josh. Heimer having too many friends because now he is not a lot of democrat. Not a lot of democrats very happy with with my former boss. Josh god heimer. Let everyone know when i was just a twenty. Two year olds speechwriter on the carey campaign He was the chief speechwriter saquinavir young problem-solver. Just learning yeah. Apparently i didn't learn well enough. I didn't follow russia's footsteps. I did not become a problem. Solver myself Unfortunately but He was my boss. So yeah well. I mean the chamber of commerce which unsurprisingly supported Got timers guber was another name for them content. They tweeted that the infrastructure. Bill has been quote successfully decoupled from the reconciliation. Bill is that true now. They cannot be a couple because the dynamics here are such that either. Both bills pass are neither bill passes right it. That is what it's going to happen. Nothing changed throughout all of this drama. There was documented minute by minute. By capitol hill reporters looking for to not have vacation in august or something and but ultimately they have the same mental image. They had before nothing has changed their knowledge. est. Nancy pelosi has a deadline by which needs to get the senate bill to her and everyone knows that it's not a surprise so we're gonna end up in the same place and if they bring out if the let's say for some reason the budget bill does is does not pass the senate by that time than eight nine ten thirty house progresses. We'll just do josh. Got armor did and hold back on it. This is yeah. They'll vote against like that's what she she could put the. She can hold a vote on the infrastructure bill on september. Twenty seventh doesn't mean it's going to pass if house progressive. Don't get what they want. Which is a budget coming over from the senate just in the long history of stupid points legislative fights. This one is very near. The top never has so much energy been spent on something of little consequence here. There was a they want a minor. Kinda sorta change in a legislative procedure and even in their grandest ambitions if they had solved the problems to which they have dedicated themselves. What what most would have happened. Is that a bill. The bipartisan infrastructure. About what a pass three weeks earlier than it. Otherwise would us like. That's really what they were pushing for. It's absurd well. Let's talk about why it happened. And sort of the motivations that led to it five of these democrats are in buying districts that range from deep la- seven to deep la- seventeen only jared golden Is sitting in a district that trump one of all of them And as you pointed out before the other six democrats in trump districts that are in the house didn't join this group. So what do you think their motivation was for doing this. And like what do you make of the fact that so. Many other moderates including groups like the third way in the new democrat coalition. Didn't join Got hammer's gang. I really cannot possibly divine any actual reason for these nine eventually became ten members to engage in this pointless fight other than sort of polishing their centrist bona fee days for the world to see right like we're going to position ourselves directly between nancy pelosi and the republicans is like it's all performance art. It has no substantive meeting. It doesn't really help them politically and it probably helps some of them. Raise some money But i think it's probably just attention and desire for something involving leverage and really not a bunch of people playing checkers game chess. But i think there's a br some broader dynamics here that are interesting one the fact that most people whose districts are most at risk did not join them. Says everything about this right. There's a lot of when folks like us in other progressive groups. Were criticizing these members. What they were doing. It's like oh. Look pod rose and california weighing in to say that to tell the democrats have to win trump district how to do the jobs. No the jim mcgrath. You have to win. Trump's districts get the fundamental truth. That democrats either hang together or they will hang separately right address it like. Yeah i totally get that. Defending three point five trillion dollar bill. That's going to have a bunch of progressive stuff in. It is going to be hard trump districts but going to be a lot harder if the whole party falls flat on his fucking face passes nothing right given two options anything to do here in the democrats who really need to need everything to go. Their way to win are not trying to get the success. Democrats who are can't like ed case in jim kosta in these others are not gonna lose their. They have no danger of listening. Yeah they're the ones causing the problem. Here yeah we can't Divine their motivations. But they're certainly the fact that a bunch of democrats sitting in tump trump districts didn't join them certainly means that it wasn't entirely about the politics on the ground and their voters We also know this because Data for progress in climate. Power surveyed the districts of Some of the members of this Got hammer's gang here. Two out of three voters in those districts view additional climate and clean energy investments as.

"Moderates or democratic progresses think equal leverage. Yeah i kinda dude. It's a math game right. You need there are there are more than five moderates in the problem solvers caucus whoever else in the house and there was more than five progressives in the so same thing right i mean in the end fifty need fifty vote so you need those with number centers and you need your mission cures cinema right in house. You need josh heimer. Stephanie murphy a bunch of others and you need a oc at ilhan omar ro khanna and a bunch of other progressives and so do like this is it incredibly challenging thing to do to pass a bill that gets keep everyone happy with no margin of error when we passed the affordable care. Act him house. A bunch of the blue dog democrats. The moderates in the house voted against it because they could because we had huge margins that is not available that that is not really an option. Here and i think the one positive sign but all this is i think there is some unanimity. That one politically failure is a fucking disaster and so we all got to figure this shit out and to this is and i think moderates and progressives around this. This could be the last best chance for the foreseeable future to do some real good for a lot of people and so we gotta figure it out. Yeah i was gonna say the only thing that could change the calculus and who has the upper hand on negotiations is if democratic moderates decide that doing nothing and letting it all fail is better than spending too much money and it just doesn't quite seem that they're there yet because they have to especially in the house they all have to face reelection. And what are they gonna run on if they don't have either an infrastructure bill or budget and all of the good stuff in both of them to talk about when you look back at the politics around republican legislative efforts in the trump administration. You look at republican. Voters failure to repeal obamacare. A big huge prominent on display national television failure was much more damaging to them. Then the either passing the tax cut. Bill helped them or passing tax cut. Bill hurt them with independence. So fill your just ferry disaster. There's all this talk of. You know when you look back like the democrats lost the house in two thousand ten because we passed healthcare. You know what what caught been a thousand times worse than we would have lost the senate to if we'd fail to pass healthcare so failure is not an option here. Yeah the only thing. I think the moderates could be thinking too is if we wait long enough and this budget resolution. This budget bill falls apart. Then we'll be able to say well. The only game in town is the infrastructure bill. So let's just past that because we just lost the budget thing. i could imagine the moderates. I think that's what they're thinking right now. There is a couple of troublemaking moderates in everyone knows who they are in the house. But for the most part you know folks. Stephanie murphy are very constructive. And the progressives across the board whether it's bernie in senate or the folks in the squad had been very strong about their the leverage they have tried to exercise it but they've been productive and i yeah that that could change but it has not changed on either side of that. I hope it doesn't yeah. And i think they all do understand that they riser fall together on this one. So all right. Let's talk about the republican strategy here. some of them might have voted for joe biden's infrastructure bill. None of them are rooting for joe. Biden's economic plan in fact. They're doing whatever they can to either kill it or run against it and twenty twenty two. A senate republicans like josh holly and ted cruz kick things off by forcing democrats to vote on. A series of budget amendments. The other night like hiring one hundred thousand new police officers defunding cities the defunding police banning critical race theory in schools and federal workforce training prohibiting universal pre-k and childcare and barring immigrants from entering the us without a negative covert test very specific on that one meanwhile a right wing superpac known as the american action network launched a five million dollar ad campaign that attacks. Twenty-one swing district democrats for the cost of the reconciliation bill take a listen first.

"You to have. Bipartisan deal that you move forward with while you know i love reinstating salt and getting taxes down but the bottom line is gonna have to look in totality of the package and see what impact it's going to have on my district and the and new jersey and also in. What else is involved in that package. It's hard to talk about these things in theory. You've got actually see. the fine. print is exactly on the physical instructor side and the infrastructure. What's taking a long time working together. Line by line making sure we're investing in the right policy priorities. And with the right. Because you know as as a senator tell you being responsible newness the right way and is much smarter than just right throwing a lot at it without a real strategy josh heimer. It sounds like you're folding on the salt The ultimatum to me. If you use you. Change your twitter account to congressman josh. Seen the deal yet. Because i haven't seen. I know you're close to burning but you know i i haven't seen it. I've met him on a trip once. He's very very nice. I can't do with rob portman senator train ones. You did okay so you don't. You don't know but in a rav i what's going on with with mansion. I wanna know what's really going on in his mind. What does he want and is there something. We're he'll just give in on a lot of important stuff that we think he's going to stand firm on. Is there some perk or some way that he's going to backtrack on all those Promises when he gets something. He wants for west. Virginia or god knows what you know. What do you think well. You have talked to joe himself. He's not here but you are. There's a lot in this package for infrastructure for west virginia ancil highland for every other state. Because you know they've got crumbling infrastructure there. They've got the roads and bridges issue that tough time paying for it so this is something that's going to be helpful in terms of the economy of west. Virginia I will say that. He strongly supportive with this package and he was a big part of it. So my hope is that for democrats you know the focus on what's good for the economy and raising taxes right now particularly making our country less competitive at a time when we finally have a tax rate for not so much corporations is what. I'm concerned about the workers. Because most of the benefit of the tax cuts went to the workers based on the nonpartisan congressional budget office and other economic analysis talked about that on the show before when raise taxes particularly raising them five times higher than we cut them in two thousand seventeen. It's gonna really hurt our wages benefits and competitiveness. There's some things that even we agree here on on the show and i am addressing. Both of you gentlemen on this end and that one of them might be And you saw probably the propublica peace. And i don't agree with most of what what's in that piece because if you paid income taxes as you were crewing wealth. I don't see how suddenly right for taxation get back. But let's say you have just assets it of appreciate over time that you're you're either gonna leave your heirs or give the charity and they never ever see taxation or what about borrowing against those assets and funding lavish lifestyles. Where you have income. But it's not reported income. Republicans rob usually all anything addressing. Any of these loopholes are many times are non-starters. Would you be to something that would address some of those issues. Rob well the issue. Talking about joe is is probably one where republicans and democrats could talk about. Because it's about people not having any income taxes but rather you know relying on either borrowing against their assets or or in some cases kept capital gains taxes. But joe here's a here's the focus that i hope we will have going forward. Which is let's not put our small businesses and our farms or ranches and physician where they literally can't be passed on from generation to generation by not allowing step up in basis increase in use state tax so high. Because that's that's what's going on here. In combination with much higher have capital gains taxes. It would be harmful to the very backbone of our economy. So that's what i'm concerned about. From what i hear about within the the sanders package. We'll see but you don't wanna go there because again josh said it. Well we're coming out of a pandemic We finally see you know an ice economic recovery. We've got to deal with inflation issue at a focus on the supply side which is what by the way more infrastructure is all about and we've got to focus on insuring that we're not doing the wrong thing now so that we get off track before the pandemic remember. We had rising wages. We had the lowest poverty rate in the history of the country. We had low unemployment. Historically low for blacks hispanics so we. It's good stuff going on. We need to get back. He's senator senator just a question as you think about the estate tax in the context of small businesses farms. First of all we should. We should just know. It's a very small the on the farm side. It's a very very small portion of of of the issues that actually would get would get hit. And maybe you could create some kinds of exceptions around it. But at what point is. I always say to myself is a lifetime of not getting tax. Seems to be enough and is there an upper limit. Meaning would you say the first fifteen million twenty million dollars goes but you know if you have a small business at some point the family who owns it or the the individual owns it should pay some form of taxes on it. it can't go untaxed forever. Where workers don't don't have don't have that they're getting they're getting taxed every single day and these these folks aren't. I'm trying to understand how to think about that. I'd say andrews. It's not an estate tax issue. That's that's a tax issue right. So and that's something that i think we we could look at it and could address. But tha that farmer You're talking about Maybe a small part of the tax. It's a big part of his life and his family's life. And and i would just tell you it's if you look at what the effect of the proposal that both the biden administration and bernie sanders have floated and other democrats have as as well. It's going to be incredibly damaging to small businesses and that's what our country runs on. You know. half. The people in america worked for small businesses. It's about ninety. Five percent of our company are passed through company. So you gotta be really careful. Because that's what he's going to get us out of this pandemic a recession that we were in a strong way for lasting economic growth. Senator portman congressman gottheimer.

"Focusing on one specific Democratic congressional primary. As I said before the break incumbent Josh Heimer Josh got Heimer, who critics on the left, called Trump's favorite Democrat. Versus Artie Cry big backed by the progressive wing, including Elsie in the sprawling fifth Congressional district in North Jersey, which used to be represented by Republican Scott Garrett. Now as your calls are coming in We'll hear about the several most competitive races today and Nancy, Let's start with God. Heimer versus Cry Bic for people, not from there. I think of the fifth Congressional district like the corner piece of a jigsaw puzzle. You know, it basically runs along the whole north edge of the state, The state line with New York. East to West, starting right across from Yonkers, all the way out to Port Jervis and then down along the Pennsylvania border around the Delaware Water Gap, a coiner jigsaw puzzle piece covering parts of Bergen War in Sussex and Passaic County. 80% white, according according to Bala Pia, So Nancy District in America that 80% White elect Republicans generally and the previous congressman Scott Garrett, was a very conservative one. He was a tea party Republican. So how did Josh got Heimer Get elected in 2016 in the first place at the same time is Donald Trump. Well, I'm gonna have to wipe away the cobwebs in my brain. I believe that you know, Garrett had faced some very strong Democratic challengers over a Siri's of years. You know, every two years, you know, House representatives are up for election. And so every year, the Democratic challenger over the space of about 10 years kept getting closer and closer. On DH. Then when God hammer came along, it was on the heels of Garrett. There was some controversy about gay rights. And maybe you remember help me out here if you remember, but I believe he had refused. To take money from a Republican gay organization. I think that's what it was. And it was right. You know, we we all talk many times about how you know Gay rights and acceptance of lesbian and gay people has changed so rapidly in this country and it was right at that moment when Attitudes were changing and s O Garrett got caught up in that He lost the election, you know, and God, heimer, you know, I know that there are a lot of Democrats unhappy with him, but You know, you gotta you gotta give the guy some credit. He's in a very, very mixed, very important district. Very, you know, Bergen County. It sort of is Theo, Ohio of New Jersey on DH, So he's in a very, very mixed district. And if he can survive a primary challenge, then he's a pretty good match for many of the voters in Bergen County. Now, people on the left are goingto not like that. I said that, but I think that is, you know, I think what what we're seeing this year is their kind of their three different kinds of three different challenges going on in these congressional races. There are 12 districts in New Jersey and what we're seeing is A race like got timers where Democrats are frustrated with him that he is to middle of the road that he works with Republicans, et cetera. And then there's the kind of challenge that Hector Oseguera in District eight is waging against all B O. Syria's Hudson County, Jersey City, Hoboken and Elizabeth around there. Exactly. Andi. It's It's the only majority letter next voting to congressional District in New Jersey on and I'll be a serious is a Cuban American comes out of the Democratic machine. But you know, he's kind of one of these guys who hasn't got much of a profile and people. You know, some people are frustrated that he just sort of glides to victory without any kind of challenge. There's no you know, people feel that there was there's no accountability There's obviously you know, there's always been a lot of frustration with the Hudson County machine, so there's that going on, too. And along comes Hector Oseguera, who's you know, worked on Thie campaign and queens to upset the machine. There. He's you know, young and dynamic. He's Dominican, which you know, there's been sort of generational change in terms of the immigrant community in this district and where people come from, and now it's more Central American and Dominican rather than Cuban, so you know, so, but he's challenging kind of the you know that that here serious doesn't deserve people's vote. He hasn't done enough in Congress. So there's that and then you know, there's a fight going on in the second Congressional district forward. Yeah, right. That's the fascinating South Jersey district that the caller referred to before where the incumbent Jeff Andrew, switch parties from Democrat to Republican in the middle of this term, But we have AH got Heimer caller. Standing by and we have a cry Bic caller standing by. Let's hear from each of them. Karen in Bergen County. You're on W N Y. C. Karen, Thanks so much for calling in Oh, thank you, Bryan.

"It's actually become more of a fantasy football team than a real franchise. And I'd rather talk about something much more likely than the Packers being competitive. I wanna talk about the consequences of passing the green new deal. Mike gallagher. Good morning. How are you congressman? Good morning here. I want to salute you for that hard hitting coverage earlier of the Westminster dog show. That's what I admire about you, and Dwayne you will cover what the rest of needed what they're afraid of. We're gonna go right into the middle of the controversy. Listen, I I want you to go along with me for a moment. And imagine that the new green deal was adopted the Alexandria Cortez. White paper version or the joint resolution. It doesn't matter. Just imagine. It would be adopted. What would it do to our military? It would be a complete disaster here. And this is the problem with what we were the problem. We already have is that we know that entitlement spending is crowding out all our other priorities. I would love to make an investment it infrastructure right now. We know we're going to have to sustain at least five percent growth the DOD budget over the next ten years. But if you spend all your money on out on things like the green new deal than we simply aren't going to have enough left over to debate the cost to pass of protecting our country. And you know, it's interesting nothing in the green new deal from a national security. Talk about the need for nuclear energy. That is going to be critical as we consider the competition between us and China over the next ten years one of the areas where we need to win is in micro reactor technology, the Chinese are investing heavily in. This. Bill Gates, is nonprofit has actually made significant investments in China. We have to win the race for micro reactor technology, if for no other reason than we want our military bases off the grid because the greatest acceptable the cyber attack, and you have a micro react or a small nuclear reactor. That's precisely what you can do. So this is simply not realistic plan. And I salute my colleague, and my only friends in congress. Liz Cheney for highlighting the absurdity of the green new deal yesterday and getting it entered into the record. We've already praised by the way, she is our secret weapon. She'd like the ninja congresswoman she's the electric fence at Democrats did not, touch, and I don't know who tottered or reclaim time. She must have watched her dad all those years like just watch my dad, try cases, she must have. Watch your dad run and own a committee presenting because yesterday, she was magnificent in putting down the attempts to sidestep or divert attention from the idiocy of the new green deal. But let me specifically ask you. I had a meeting last night. What am I friends and former seal, and he was telling me very interesting the evolution of the relationship between the teams and their Intel officers and drone technology, how it's required the teams in the Intel to change and they began thinking about, you know, the reaper drones very familiar. Most people. There's also the US air force ultra-secret autonomous space drone. I think it's called the x thirty seven b how do drones get powered are they run on many, nuclear engines. Are they run on batteries or they run on fuel? What what's a drone power system depends on the drone who I can almost guarantee. They're not run on many nuclear weapons simply wouldn't have the ability to do that. I mean you look at nuclear subs. They're tightly controlled welders to deal with the housing compartment on nuclear. For the nuclear component, actually, go to school for a longer period of time than most medical doctors due to give you a sense of how advanced they are. So I just have to depend on the exact drawing we're talking about you. But in any case battery technology is the second aspect of competition with China where if he really wants solar to pay off and its promise the battery technology is not quite there. And that goes for drones as well as eventually want them powered by solar and other things. But the thing to say is that solar and wind are simply not reliable forms of power in all cases. And look no further than Puerto Rico proof that that's the case where it was diesel generators that really got people back online in the wake of the crisis and had they put all their eggs in the basket of renewables. They would really be suffering right now. And when when we hear green new deal enthusiasts talk about moonshot. In fact, we're going to start using are paying every time. We hear them talk about a moonshot like Kristen gillibrand. I want to remind people that although NASA is a wonderful organization that took over the leadership of it. There would have been. Space program except for the military advances in rocketry that preceded it. So if you're serious about the green new deal, you I find out how to provide energy to the American military and recently, the DEA we allowed a demo project to resurrect our uranium enrichment plant in Ohio. Thank goodness because we were down to having no enrichment capacity in the United States, trusting the foreign sources only, but wouldn't armed services if they wanted it would be an interesting hearing if you wanted to really do grain stop it asked the military to invent stuff that would power its weapons because if we don't have a military all the green new deal is for not exactly you want DARPA to really invest heavily aches. Would you? Explain DARPA for the Packers fans. Please. When did it go from Steelers fans, the Packers only for you, congressman I'm not willing to accept that? So the defense advanced research projects basically DARPA has made a series of transformative investments, notably those that were related to the creation of the modern internet and an area where the federal government really can play a constructive role is in funding research on issues in areas that are critical financial security that otherwise would not find capital in the private sector. And so if you look at this the prison a great power competition, which we all should it is indisputable that China and Russia are making investments in next-generation technology. And so it would make sense for us to invest in the things I mentioned, whether it's micro reactors. Whether it's battery technology and solar whether it's always power, you know, all the technology that is going to be going into space right now under the new space corps that the air force secretary figured airport. Senator Wilson mentioned yesterday is actually gonna. Be situated under the air force in much the same way as Marine Corps situated under the navy. There is a role for us to invest in next generation technology through the national defense authorization act that not only get it from the perspective of winning the competition with China. But also from an environmental perspective. Let me talk to you a little bit about Venezuela. I'll be talking with Admiral Stavridis about this next hour as well Marco Rubio earlier this week tweet out the names of six senior members of the Venezuelan military who have got to turn over Madero and push him to China to Cuba, or maybe go to China where they've gotta take control of the country and give it over to one guy. Kito what is your sense of events in Venezuela? What do you believe is going to unfold and at what velocity there? Well, the protests don't seem to be dying down. And I do think Marco Rubio hit the Mark when he criticized the U N for attempting to prolong a negotiation process in the hopes that the protests would die down and Marco Rubio could very bluntly by saying that when it comes to democracy and human rights, the UN is increased it increasingly worthless to that I would add some criticism of the Vatican for its statements, and I would contrast that with the clear eyed statements that John Bolton has put out highlighting the fact that Venezuelans has taken to the streets honor student protesters who died at the hands of the Madero with a simple demand to allow humanitarian aid enter Venezuela and let the military uphold its duty to the people and make the right choice. I think we have to continue. I think we're largely on the right track here working by with and through our allies in the region, particularly the Brazilians and Colombians do both preventing humanitarian disaster. After by consistent support to Guadalupe and finally sort of drive a wedge between the military establishment and Madero that's the best and simplest and safest way for euro to go without provoking further state failure and collapsed while simultaneously we have to keep the Russians and the Chinese out, and he's probably the best role. We can play. This is a modern version the Monroe doctrine, I would also salute. Marco Rubio for highlighting the fact that China is purely interested in getting the twenty billion dollars that it is open from Venezuela. And I think it was smart for why go to announce that he's going to appoint a new board for the state oil company by the end of the week that will ensure people that there is some economic stability. And so I think we have a chance here. The president is president the secretary of state the national security advisor Senator Rubio, everyone is pulling or leaning pushing on every Lieber they can to sort of catapult Maduro out of there. Then the military's been promised an amnesty that is so important to their understanding that they will be a transition for for the good back to democracy. So I hope they take it. I gotta ask you one more question before we run out of time. The BCS movement. I am now supporting wholeheartedly a gun eight Todd Moorhead who's making an antibeach ES movement from Elenio movie because millennials abiding DDS, and I didn't realize how deeply this. This is doing what does do this very specific question to our national security, it definitely hurts Israel. But what does it do our national security, Mike Gallagher? Well, our relationship with Israel as an extension of our national security. It is only by having strong allies that can take care of their own internal problems as well as project stability and power throughout the region that were able to achieve some semblance of stability in a region as chaotic as the Middle East. And so that I would add there is extensive cooperation that happens with Israel in terms of the future of warfare and the technology determine the future of warfare and any any BBS movement in the herald that extensive cooperation we have with the Israelis. And so it is astounding to me how a DDS movement is on the progressive left right now. The sad reality is that the Obama administration broke the bipartisan consensus on supporting the state of Israel. That was for a long time the strength of that relationship, and it is all of US, Republicans and Democrats alike to step up and rebuild that bipartisan consensus. I salute some of my democratic colleagues like Josh Josh Heimer who've been clear eyed and stepping up to condemn the recent remarks that will haunt Omar have been clear eyed stepping up to say things like we need to recognize his Rayleigh sovereignty over the Golan because there's actually a lot of areas where we can learn from Israel and around the next generation technology, particularly cyber technology and clean water technology, and we have to preserve that partnership that only.

Well, that didn't take long Nancy Pelosi exacted some revenge last night against one of her. Most outspoken critics New York Representative Kathleen rice, Heather Caygill, ritual Baid, and John Bresnahan have the scoop on how Pelosi blocked rice from landing a seat on the high profile House Judiciary committee. They write plsy lobbied for other members to join the panel over rice, leaving the third term New York Democrat off a list of preferred members for the committee during a tense closed door meeting Tuesday night, according to multiple sources the effort came despite a full court push from the New York delegation to secure a spot for rice, a former prosecutor on the panel that oversees everything from impeachment to guns to immigration Republicans wish their recent speakers as ruthless Pelosi is she may take some knots from the New York delegation, but. She showed the going against her has consequences. Spider last night attorney general nominee Bill bar at Charlie Palmer after his Senate confirmation hearing at the same time.

Republicans and Democrats are expected to ten this meeting. House majority leader Steny Hoyer was chatting on the floor yesterday with Representative Josh Heimer, the second term, New Jersey Democrat who's one of the leaders of the group again, we don't expect much from a meeting of this nature. The president will be meeting another group of people that are not in power to make a deal. In fact, the problem solvers caucus is probably the group least Representative where most Republicans and Democrats are at the moment. Everett has a good reminder writing that.
