Fresh update on "kevin mccarthy" discussed on This Week with George Stephanopoulos
"Joe biden offered himself as a candidate of unity and moderation somebody who would work with republicans even suggesting he'd be a transitional president. Look i view myself as a bridge not as anything else. Nearly three months in president biden's blazed a different path aiming to be a transformational president acting to a racist his predecessors legacy and using his narrow democratic majority to ram through the biggest expansion of government since lbj need to remember. The government isn't some foreign force in the distant capital. Now it's us at first biden did reach out at least symbolically. The very first members of congress invited to the oval office where ten senate republicans invited them to talk about a bipartisan. Covid relief bill but republicans weren't willing to go anywhere near as big as biden wanted. I would predict that. Not a single. Republican will support the one point nine trillion dollar plan so he signed the most expensive bill by far ever to pass. Congress without a single vote from the opposition party. Do more to end child poverty. American anything we've ever done biden is now trying to go even bigger proposing what would be the biggest public works program ever and big tax increases on corporations and the wealthy to pay for it. He selling it as an infrastructure plan. But it's more including big investments in roads bridges airports in high speed rail but also a coast to coast network of electric vehicle charging stations broadband for rural areas replacing one hundred percent of lead pipes in the country and four hundred billion dollars to care for the elderly and people with disabilities once again. He says he wants to work with republicans. Are you going to bring republicans to the white house but republican leaders are now in a position of all out opposition. this is a vol- left wing administration. I don't think they have a mandate to do what they're doing. Even those ten moderates who came to the white house last time around in responding this week to biden's invitation by saying that the white house used their last talks to quote justify it's go it alone. Strategy and republicans are finding. It can pay off to be the party of no in the face of a big progressive agenda. Republican house leader kevin mccarthy boasting this week he raised more than twenty seven million dollars in the first quarter of twenty twenty one more than any house. Republicans ever raised in a single quarter still hanging over the republicans. Donald trump slowly emerging from his exile in mar-a-lago clinging to the lie that the election was stolen from him and even so the most in demand endorsement by far for republicans running in twenty twenty two. All that explains why biden want to and may need to bypass republicans but then the real challenge could be among democrats joe manchin of deep red west. Virginia who knows just how powerful he can be in a fifty fifty senate took his stand in an op. Ed this week saying democrats quote must avoid the temptation to abandon our republican colleagues. So as the clock ticks down to biden's first one hundred days in office at least one voice in the party is saying not so fast. Republicans may not be willing to deal but as long as joe mansion is holding out. Biden will have no choice but to try they. John wolford. l. Let's talk about it on our round table. Your joined by chris christie rahm emanuel our congressional correspondent. Rachel scott making her roundtable lady. Welcome and your times. Washington correspondent maggie. Haberman awesome analyst with cnn. Ramleh me with you. The covid relief package has passed. The president is making progress on covert on the pandemic. We just saw john's piece right there. What does he do to keep the momentum going well first of all keep pushing this because it's very popular. Not only what he did. In the past. And the sense of getting economic relief to americans who've been hurt by the pandemic but look every one of these items whether it's roads rails runways or broadband is very very popular not just with democrats and independence but with about a third of the republican party in that is a problem for the republicans and i think one of the things that he has done in the white house has done is come up with a very secret sauce. Among his persona is very soothing reassuring to moderate swing voters his policies is soothing and reassuring to progressives and that creates a problem for the republicans is a dynamic between the persona and the policy that they cannot crack which is why they're trying to divert everything away from the actual discussion of this package. Let me disabuse ram of the fact that. I'm trying to anything away from his package. I want i want to closely at the package. You cannot call four hundred billion dollar plan to force unionization in states to say that taking care of increasing medicaid payments in states is infrastructure. Now language does matter. We learn that in the last four years how you use it and what you say and i said last week that the president is not telling the truth and he's not telling the truth about the infrastructure package. This is the care economy. This is care infrastructure it's baloney and so what's going to happen is the president right now is in the first one hundred days and he's going to have that soothing persona and all the rest of it but what people start to look at what he's really doing george those moderate voters but even those things you just mentioned right right there are popular people would love to have medicating incredible grandparents. Obviously here's what's not popular lying is not popular. It's not infrastructure george it not donald trump. Let's just be fair here. If donald trump had come out and it's called a dog a cat which is what joe biden. Doing we would be outraged by the fact that he's lying. But with joe biden someone else like oh come on joe. No no no no. It's not true if he wants to make the case. George for increased medicaid payments and connected to those payments tori using. Sei union members. Let him make that case and see if he gets it passed. I know he won't and the people around the table whether or not they don't won't pass until you spend every day up. On capitol hill you talking to people on both sides of the aisle. What are the prospects of reaching a deal. I was talking to democratic senator. Chris coons yesterday. He's been working the phones. Along with a pete buttigieg the secretary trying to get republicans and democrats on the same page here. Now coons does believe that. There is a prospect for more narrow infrastructure package. So he is saying to the white house he's saying to democrats. Let's try to work on this on a two track system. You could still have democrats try and make this very broad package with everything that they want in it but at the same time try to work with republicans on a more narrow package maybe working on that through memorial day having that be sort of the deadline there i was also talking to a senior democratic source who says right now they have five republican senators. Who are on board with a package to one trillion dollars. The question though is can you get five more right. You need ten. Do you believe get republican votes for an package. I think for any package any conceivable package. I changes that could be made. But i think based on what's on the table right now no i do not i think that look. I think..

House approves $1.9 trillion COVID relief package, sending bill to Biden
"Economic stimulus plan since the Great Depression, and now millions of Americans can expect $1400 checks. Democrats alone gave President Biden his first major legislative victory on this about the A's are 2 20. The nays are 2 11, passing the $1.9 Trillion American rescue plan we have passed. Historic, consequential and transformative legislation. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says middle and lower income families will benefit from $1400 stimulus checks, extended unemployment insurance in child tax credits as well as money for vaccine distribution in $300 billion for state and local governments. It just throws out money without accountability. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy she used to bill is a bailout for Blue states on Capitol Hill.
House approves Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, with no Republican votes
"The House of Representatives has approved a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief. Package for those of you keeping track with this bill. Congress has now spent roughly $6 trillion to bail the country out of the havoc caused by the pandemic. And to put that into perspective that is about seven times larger than the stimulus passed back during the great recession of 2009. His latest bill includes a fresh round of $1400 stimulus checks, also a new and expanded child tax credit to rent relief utility relief and more money to help the uninsured by health coverage through obamacare. The bill passed with no support from Republicans, President Biden plans to sign the bill into law on Friday. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now, with the latest take Kelsey Hi there so no support from Republicans and tow layout. Republicans say they oppose it because it's not targeted enough. They argue it controlling the virus. They also say it's just we don't need to spend this much because the economy is already on the path to recovery. Do they have a point? What we're talking about here is really a question of two really different ways of viewing the economy and this pandemic. Republicans say that GDP numbers Wall Street All of these things are improving their you know the unemployment rate is falling. And they point of funding for the arts and humanities programs, museums and things like that is not necessarily about the pandemic on the face. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also compared federal spending in this bill to socialism, and he said, it just isn't sustainable. Showers money on special interests. It spends less than 9% on actually defeating the virus. They're really focusing on that money about getting back scenes out. They're reopening schools. That is the core of what Republicans say the money should be spent on and some Republicans said during the debate today on the House floor that sending checks to people is just popular, but they think bull object once they realize how much the government is spending on things that are not directly related to coronavirus relief. Okay, now, how do Democrats respond? All that Democrats? Say that Wall Street gains really just paper over major problems in the economy that are not felt by the vast majority of people. The vast majority of people are not stockholders, and they say This bill is meant to be a big social safety net. It's supposed to have more support for the uninsured. Like you mentioned more support for families with Children, people who are unemployed. People who are homeless and people who are struggling to make rent. You know, unemployment is improving, but the job Liz rate is still nearly double what it was before the pandemic, and the number of long term unemployed people is still up by three million this year, and that's all, according to the official Bureau of Labor Statistics. There's also money in here for institutions like museums that have been shuttered or have seen revenue declines that threatened their ability to reopen one vaccines or just tripped, barred out and distributed and people are going back in, and Democrats say this bill is about the whole system. No, I will note that Americans a lot of Americans seem to be on board with this legislation. Polls show fairly widespread support for it, which is something Democrats like 2.2. Are there potential political downsides here, though, for four Democrats, while Democrats say the Republicans will pay the price for lining up against something that is at this moment so popular House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pointed out that people who will benefit from this bill don't just vote for Democrats. And she says Republicans are voting against something they'll take advantage of later. It's typical that they vote no and take the dough. And this bill has bipartisan support across the country. You hear her? They're speaking through a mask on the house floor. But you know, a lot depends on how this is administered. Will it go out slowly You do. Schools actually reopened. Do bad actors get money? And does he economy actually improve with this infusion of cash, and that's all a

"This time actually kept him locked up with this whole rotating system. Now, where even if the police do their job, the district attorney's very often will not support a reinforce the law. But instead let people out. You have this in. Los. Angeles even more in San Francisco in terms of the district attorney there who is a very hard line pro Venezuelan dictatorship, Pro Castro kind of left winner and I. Think Somehow we're going to get across to people that these policies have consequences. One what we're seeing not work, it is a functioning policies that were just wrong. I think that's part of why I like what you're doing here. You're laying out a plan. which allows people to understand the details. When you talk about opportunities zones, for example, the ability to really focus on growing areas that have been poor I think people realize this is something that could work. You're correct. You know what George Soros has done and I've watched it in California now they wanNA move it nationally. He's got into these cities where he spent millions of dollars on a district attorney race that you've never seen before. You've only heard about these things on a national campaign from San Diego Contra cost another's and there's two places he focused. District Attorney's. And Secretaries of state. Because, he wants to determine when it comes to election law he wants to determine especially when you're talking about right now, we just heard from a DA in California who said after there was looting not to prosecute anybody because they needed woody now have to determine when someone's still something if they felt they needed it is no longer breaking the law. They don't have the right to do that. We believe in the rule of law this has been a long term program by the Democrats, and now we're watching the ramifications of what they have done in these cities that have been just controlled by Democrats they WANNA, do it on a much larger scale? We have a perfect example. The Democrats for the number of years thinking that government can own and control and send you a check determined that we will change the outcome of your life in the poorest communities of America or could we give an opportunity zone private money comes and faster you get a piece of the pie you get to move up in the economy and that we're not going to hold you to a bad school. We're GonNa let the parents choose and we're going to give the best school for you to go to. Your. Really developing. A program of individual responsibility, individual choice and essense taking power back from government. And putting it back with individuals. And striking this much closer to the original American model where people one out in pursue the American dream. I'm in California and California's a great example because it's a beautiful state has everything you'd ever want right. But. It also has. What the Democrat policies have brought over after Ronald Reagan after George Duke Major had made this such a promising state, right? We now pay forty percent higher electricity. We now have electricity turned off because they can't provide enough to the grid. But what else we have is an example of what the Democrats say like everybody should be equal. Well, now we find Nancy Pelosi. Doesn't have the same rules. So once she got caught of going and getting her hair done, they opened up for everybody else when they kept the gym's closed and when they finally found out that the only gyms that weren't closed where the government gems. So the government employees could still go there now they opened up the public wants. So when these socialist tell you, it's making it equal for everybody else it's not always equal we. Learned that from the Soviet Union the elect few still get something more but I believe in an idea that gives the own power. It doesn't hold you back to what you can achieve and what they have done it to the school districts to hold people back what they are now trying to do to the rule of law of making our streets not safe. This is a much different election than we've had in the last century. Whether it was in reaction to trump or just because of the gradual evolution of the system. Re of their power grab is much greater that when you see a governor such as in Nevada, who says is okay to get the other casino, but you can't get together at a church. Well, that's virtually a dictatorship. He's telling you what you can and can't do with no reference to the rule of law. And no reference to individual liberty. And assumes that you're trying to do with this kind of a commitment is get us back to a country where people have choices within a framework of law and where the workforce has the right kind of education and where there are incentives to create jobs. So people actually can work their way to dramatically better future. Without having to rely on government, that's an enormous. Gap between where the Democrats are and where we are. I'm GonNa tell you a personal conversation. I had with my governor Gavin newsom. During this pandemic Gavin nuisance shuts everything down as we begin to phase out of it. He makes a rule about restaurants opening up any basis at upon square footage for social distancing, which I believe is fair restaurant restaurant how large you are, how many people you can have based upon square footage. He's in later makes the decision about whether you can go to church and he makes a uniform decision regardless of the size of your church you can only have one hundred people. So, I text him and say, I need to talk to his chief of staff, call me and the Secretary of Health, and I asked him the question. How did you determine for restaurants and they all we base it on square foot he's for the science and social. Distance. Did you use that same for churches? No. They WANNA pick and choose I said last time I read the Constitution I didn't see anything in there about restaurants but I believe it had religious freedom in there. And what's their reaction when you say that because I've been amazed at their willingness to run over religious liberty. It's almost internally they don't care. They're going to take this moment in time and when the protests came, there's a video. It's shoulder to shoulder from mile long of people down. In. La Protesting. You will not hair one question about that. Coming to spread in New York to Balazs you told them you cannot track and trace if somebody comes in and has covert asking if they've gone to a protest, you cannot ask them. They view that as different another discussion I had with Gavin Newsom, these churches have daycare. So during the week, they can provide daycare for a number of children. But on Sunday we cannot meet. So I guess covert only comes on Sunday. It's almost to the point that they're putting their own personal beliefs forward. That's why the commitment to America we put in. We will preserve our freedoms under the constitution because we're going to uphold free speech you can go protest your voice needs to be hurt pro or con. Also, GonNa protect your religious liberty, and we're going to defend the unborn and we're going to safeguard the second amendment. If you.

"Up about GOP leader in the house Kevin McCarthy so the only way these investigations and the only way we can really focus on peace and prosperity and creating jobs and opportunities for Americans is if people go out and two hundred and sixty three days not only vote for the president but they better elect Republicans are over these Democrats especially want this thirty or forty districts in particular that I think Democrats are vulnerable so the house could be one back we have some tough Senate race is one in Colorado one in Arizona main is gonna be a tough race and I think that if people want to and the analyst bickering an investigation that impeachment talk that's the only way that's the only way I see what you're doing the president discussed this if you vote for the president and you let the Democrats stand stand power it's tight the house dot com if you want to end all this and we are doing such an amazing job in recruiting because I'll tell you what this impeachment everything else you've got like Wesley hull running in Houston went up hello Apaches went to west point we've got amazing women out there actually Hanson in Iowa that we're having more women run in the Republican Party than in the history was shattering every record because they see this country and they want to take it back and they want to make sure they have a Congress that actually works with the president instead of their only agenda is impeachment is unbelievable well I always thought that if you actually serve the people that put you in office that that would be good politics and you'll be rewarded for doing so to reward people that have fixated only on hating the president would be a disservice to themselves but again I don't I only one vote and my vote unfortunately is in the state in New York not as powerful people voting in North Carolina and Michigan and Pennsylvania Wisconsin it didn't get one more motivation if we took the majority Nancy Pelosi would not be speaker and Adam ship with no long a beach chair of the Intel committee and he could no longer keep lying I agree with that too all right Kevin McCarthy two hundred sixty three days will be following this as closely as anybody on TV and radio and we always appreciate your time thank you for being with us right eight hundred nine four one Shawn if you want to be a part of the program quick break we'll come back we'll get to a lot of your calls coming up straight ahead as we continue former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe mass have all charges from the justice department dropped correspondent Shimon procure pass with more the US attorney's office the Washington field US attorney's office which is the same US attorney's office that is handling the Roger stone case and now the Michael Flynn case as well and has been handling the Andrew McCabe case they sent a letter to enter McCabe's attorney where they say that after careful consideration the government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against Andrew McCabe Attorney General William Barr has ordered an investigation into the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn as well as other politically sensitive cases a New York juries convicted Michael Levin Audi of extortion have a not a also faces charges of stealing from clients he had one time represented.

"It's Sunday morning with us. The most powerful Congressman Republican congressman on Capitol Hill Kevin McCarthy or leader Good Morning Leader McCarthy. How are you? I'm doing well. John how are you doing. I'm doing great raked. And as we spoke in the past I think this is one of the most important elections in our country's history. How do you feel about the events that happened in the past week? Well I will tell you I think the president has made this world safer and made sure America was safer When you look at the individual this terrorist that The president taking out the six hundred American lives that he had taken that were defending our nation and then just recently another American he killed in the attack on the embassy the downing of our drone I mean I thought this president been very patient with Iran but I think he sent a very clear message to them and now we're seeing de escalation which I think is appropriate and Making sure that this administration has a red line and they follow through on it like they did. I think that's the only thing that Iran understands I agree with you. One hundred ten percent and Nobody Americans don't really understand skin Where Nancy Pelosi is going where especially when she wants to take a vote on the war powers act that means? The president of the United States can't do anything without asking them. I isn't that crazy. That is very crazy. Nothing that we had ever done to President Obama. Either remember when when Summa bin Laden was killed Republicans and Democrats together celebrated that and thank the president for his actions General Portray says that all Mani is bigger than Bin Laden and the Democrats cannot give this president any credit for it. Iran had escalated at this time and again. And that's what your listeners to understand remember the downing of our drone the bombing of the tankers the bombing of the refinery the killing of an American the attack on our embassy. This is all in short timeframe within the last six months and somehow America escalated this. It was a defense. The president has all the right to do it and the most telling of all this the resolution. They put it on in the form of what they did. They did something that's called a concurrent resolution which is non-binding. Unbinding has no power whatsoever. This is the form that we used to have the Soapbox Derby on Capitol Hill. This is when we use concurrent resolutions Russians and lying to the American public. Like they're doing something I mean. All they're doing is weakening our country by telling Iran that we were divided that the president doesn't doesn't have the support of the president doesn't have the power to act when he does even some of the c. a Democratic senators Feinstein from California has started to question Pelosi since she gets a message. You know she's really should with Dianne. Feinstein who is the senator from California forty but more importantly is Nancy. Pelosi's Home Count Senator from San Francisco when she said all this talk of urgency. And when you don't send it means it's is not urging if it's urgent send it over if not don't send it at all. And then she nancy Pelosi had her own chairman of Armed Services Committee. Say It's time he just made this comment. Oh yesterday that it's time to send over the only person that doesn't think so Nancy Pelosi but she told the American people. It was so urgent ascend. I think what she's really saying now is in a very very clear message that her case is so weak that she knows. There's not a reason for impeachment. She's almost embarrassing. To the case that she has of why she should send it to the Senate and overall the American people other than the people in in Washington. Just feel that we're at a standstill on on the vote on the trade deal from Canada and Mexico which is jointly pro. You know everybody's for it. Why can't go food? Well you know It has moved forward in one committee in the Senate Parliamentarian over there has listed. I think another five committees so the timing. It's trying to get that through holding impeachment papers which I do not believe she has the power to do continues to Harm America Erica from the basis of getting any work done because what happens once the impeachment papers go there. That's the only thing the Senate can do it then. It would jeopardize the trade agreement by the timing of wanted to get it done now in our country on Friday The jobs are all time high unemployment all-time all time low consumer confidence all time high. Don't Democrats see this. I'm not sure what they're seeing. I mean they get so frustrated just because the president has been so successful I think as a country especially in situations like this. We shouldn't look this as Republicans or Democrats. We should look at it. As as Americans how Democrats who brought up a war powers act look at those six hundred gold star families those mom and tell them that they think it's right around after what this individual had done and the number of Americans e to the other thing that happened on Friday morning was that the Iraqi. Prime Minister said sister's been a vote about the United States pulling out troops. Maybe we should have a discussion. Where where does he stand? Well I I'm not sure we'll have. It would be very interesting to see the aircraft that was shot down Where do we go from here? Well this is going to be very interesting You have Iran. WHO's not releasing the black box? I think there's a reason for it and now they ran to clean up the debris because it's very clear from the videos that seems as though Iran actually shot down a commercial official jet seventy six to maybe Passes the book to just. I'm innocent. Lives being killed again again by Iran. Why what do we have to do to move off country folk? Well I think the first thing we have to do is focus on the issues about that. America needs from prescription drugs from surprise billing continuing to build our economy to be stronger getting US MCA pass. We're more job needed. Her Konami believes stronger. Focusing on what's going forward from the environment and others those are all the issues that we would like to work on in Congress. The sad part is with this new. The Democrat majority. They have offered more subpoenas than they have created loss. VAT is the history that would be having now. We're into a new year and we're back to the same thing just more or investigations. We've got this challenge and Iran. And we've got an Intel Committee that focuses all their time on impeachment which isn't their jurisdiction instead of focusing on keeping this this country safe. It's Sunday morning Americans sitting back. I'd breakfast and having their the coffee What else would you like to tell all Americans I would just like to thank them and Tell you one thing I think we were all very fortunate to live in America. America's more than a country. America's an idea an idea of self governance we were unique in the essence of this country. It was conceived in liberty and dedicated proposition that we are all equal. We believe in a more perfect union and striving towards that I think the more divide only harmse's find find ways that we work together for the common good and that's one of the made new goals that I have here in Congress House. Republican leader Kevin McCarthy Carthy. I agree with you one hundred ten percent and I reach out to all comic sense. Democrats are things like Americans and not necessarily party lines finds a happy New Year and God bless America. Thank you so much this is the round table. We'll be right back..

"Good Morning America. This is the cats roundtable John Cats Matisse here. Send me morning what's going on in Washington who it gives us those inches then house. Republican leader Congressman Kevin McCarthy Good Morning Lead. I just I call you leader. How how are you you could just call me Kevin. I'm doing well John. How are you good. What a message going on over there. where do we begin. We'll be able to judiciary sir. I think we should now remember congressman. Nadler the way a member becomes a chairman of a committee they literally run for it within their own conference and when Congressman Nadler started running to become chair of judiciary committee he put out some of the arguments why he should be chairman and you know what one of them was that he would be the very best person for impeachment and if you notice this is not where the country she wants to go. This is not where Democrats WANNA go. They'd had to pull the sit. There are no facts behind to have an impeachment and what does he do. He creates an imaginary impeachment. Teach me now there's internal turmoil within the Democratic Party. Some Democrats are wondering whether why he should stay chairman. I've heard talk of them wanting to remove him as chair Nancy Pelosi the speaker had to have her own conference and she said I don't care if you leak this criticizing he and his staff I mean they are in an all without war because of the way he has mismanaged the committee. This committee has jurisdiction over the border. He's done nothing immigration. This committee has jurisdiction and over social media the tech companies and others. He's done nothing about that. This committee has the oversight when it comes to the inspector generals who who the Inspector General Horowitz who just did a review of the DOJ this is the committee and he refuses to bring them forward every normal Komo congress in the past regardless of who was in charge if it's inspector general had a report like this would bring the expecter general into question but I just up to Pelosi to step to the plate and do something I would think so I mean she is one in the basis. Remember how fearful we were. Pelosi running the Democrats 'cause he was so far to the left. The Democrats are not the same party they were in the past there now the Socialist Democrats. That's what they call themselves that uh-huh Nancy Pelosi from San Francisco is now the moderate in the new Socialist Democrat Party. She has the title Speaker but she no longer has the power. The new four freshman Kinda run the show. You're absolutely right. It looks crazy. Now what's even crazier. The New York Times minds writes in a row news report that wasn't proven about justice cavern and all of a sudden they wanNA impeach him to yes and remember what the New York Times has done in the media has done in so many different ways they went and they removed the facts because they'd they've ear responsible for even what they've done and I see it continue to go forward. It's very sad. It is very sad I don't know what's going to happen at the New York Times. I mean author cells. Parker is no longer in charge. I guess he put his son in charge and things things got worse. Really has what's GonNa Happen. I mean this is between the trade agreement with Canada and Mexico Exco. Every American wants it. Most of the Democrats want. I mean it's good for America. It's good for North America. It's good for all of us on the US MCA the United States and Mexico Canada agreement which everybody supports which I don't know why that was was not passed before we left on the East on the summer. Break Mexico has already ratified months ago Canada's waiting for us and if anybody would study about our trading partners do you know Mexico in the last month is overtaken to become number one candidate or number two and here here. We are with the discussion with China trying to get a more level playing field if we had. US MCA passed before the president had to sit down with Xi Jinping in November ember are we would even be stronger in our negotiations with China. Why wouldn't we put the country. I I think the Democrats are more concerned about tearing the president down instead of building America up we also the president promised the Brits that they went through with brexit that we would make an agreement with them toe and it's a natural agreement or among among friends. Why don't we want to be strong in our whole own continent here I mean I I just don't understand nobody can tell me why would oppose it. It would only create at a minimum one hundred and eighty thousand jobs. They say it could be higher half a million Why wouldn't we WANNA make our economy stronger. GDP EP would grow. I don't understand the only reason why this couldn't be brought up because the speaker has all the power went to call it up is simply. Blaine Politics Horrible Justice Department. I mean we we keep talking about horrible more horrible roble most horrible the Justice Department Inspector General the recommendations for a criminal action or whatever what do you think is how does how is that. GonNa sort out well. I am very hope four and I've got a lot of respect for attorney general bar. I think he is a man who doesn't play politics who just does follows the rule of the law and wherever the evidence take some he goes but the one thing I found as well too is that I believe people need to be held accountable because you look at report after report from FIS and others when we're hopefully seeing that one come through this is the closest this country has ever come to having a coup and we can never allow any person new becomes President Republican Democrat Green Party or other to go through the fear of what just happened we cannot allow individuals to do that again and we need to get to the bottom of it and people need to be held accountable call me it looks like very very very true and then the number two became inside the FBI. I mean now. They're moving forward to put charges against him here. He is is a number two in law enforcement. Trying people are putting forth for trial for lying when he's lying to the American public the what were the what are the Democrats do they had them for a fundraiser that goes beyond Pale. Why would you hold this man to any Osteen Dean Law Enforcement. You're supposed to uphold the law when he was lying. What's worse. CNN hired him. Yes that shows. There's a lot to what the media's doing. I would not think this individual get rewarded for lying leader of a quasi. What else would you like to tell the American public. I mean Saudi Arabia do the Iranians do it. All indication Asian intelligence right now looks like Iran did attack Saudi Arabia. We've attacked him before we know. They attacked tankers. We know that Iran is the individuals who fun terrorism from around the world who foster it and try to make it grow the one thing that we have found a win after tried to attack five percent of the supply of oil around the world they wanted the price to two hundred dollars at any given time before it would have the difference is America America's becoming energy independent we when Republicans wearing the majority we lifted the ban and what has happened. We now expert to thirty countries. We now have producing more oil or now number. One in the world that only makes more jobs bakes makes us stronger makes the environment more sound because of the way we produce it instead of others but also geo politically it makes the world safer now you cannot have. Iran continue to do this. They shut down one of our own unmanned planes and they are trying to push the world into a war. This is a time that the world should unite against Iran. Well agree the net we got a minute. What else would you like to tell the American people nearly. I'll tell the American people just just a short time ago. There are two special elections in North Carolina Republicans won both of them in you should look at that. North Carolina nine a seat that Republicans only one by nine hundred votes in twenty the eighteen just want it by four thousand. If I was a democrat I'd be worried because a number of Democrats ended up voting for Republicans because they've now seen the policy that this is no longer anger the Democratic Party. They're Socialist Democrats. They believe in total control Medicare for all to actually control the healthcare instead of modernizing the healthcare care when you look at what they wanna do in the process for the environment. I'm looking at Republicans wanting to clean up the environment where ninety percent Santa all the plastic comes from ten rivers in the world. He looked at the Republicans in Congress going after those ten rivers to get ninety percent up I look at when it comes to the economy automate. This is the strongest economy we've been in the last fifty years and the part. I love most about it is it's reached. All of America doesn't matter your gender your color your skin. You have a better economy today for you than at any given time and that's exciting but we want to make sure we build on that. When I watched the democratic debate there wasn't one in question for those running for president on the economy are on a peach mint but when I watched the Democrats Socialists in the house all they WanNa talk about is an imaginary imaginary impeachment I think I think this country believes we need to our elected. Officials focus on finding common ground focus focus on making sure tomorrow is better than today and that will happen with a new Congress leader McCarthy thank you very much for coming on on and how American people what's going on and thank you for your leadership and thank you for being great American thank you.

"But while we seek cooperation there is one core principle upon which we will not compromise Republicans always choose personal freedom over government control. Representative Kevin McCarthy of California and the speaker's chair on the opening day of the two hundred sixteenth congress setting the stage for the Republicans in the house being in a minority position with him as their leader. We're going to learn more about Kevin McCarthy and his approach to leadership by dipping into C Span's archives. As those of you who watch us. No, we have a ongoing video record of members of congress throughout their legislative history. And we thought would be interesting to assemble that for a look back at what brought Kevin McCarthy to this position of power. And what we might expect from him in the next couple of years. I'll let me introduce the two reporters who are going to help us. Stay this. Scott Wong as returning to C span. Today's senior staff writer for the hills. Scott, welcome back. Nice to see you again. And Evan Hafer is a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times. I've got to ask both of you starting with you. And if you would explain how you've been covering Kevin McCarthy and for how long shore I've been covering. Mccarthy for since before two thousand and four when he became the Republican leader in the California assembly at the time Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor. I was working in the Sacramento bureau. The state was in a major budget crisis which continued for some time, and he sort of led the minority Republicans resisting any any tax increases. And then he he went on to go to congress later, and I started working in Washington about six years ago, and I've been covering while I've been in Washington, and Scott how about you. I've been covering Capitol Hill for the last eight years, but Kevin McCarthy specifically since two thousand fourteen when I joined the hill newspaper, Capitol Hill publication and started covering House Republicans, then the speaker of the house was John bainer, but we've had some turnover over the years and McCarthy has been sort of the consistent force throughout that time. And so now after four years in the majority, I'm covering Kevin McCarthy. The and the minority. Well, the consistent force and coupled with a pretty quick rise both in the California assembly and in the house of representatives for both of you. What is the secret to his success? Why has he advanced so quickly I in his home state assembly and then in the congress. Well, Kevin McCarthy was very good. And California's very good here at seeing what people want, and what people need and doing things for them, politically, helping them raise money either. He's he's somewhat chameleon like ideologically. He he sees sort of where the party is going, and he's very good at helping people elevate their political careers and people get indebted to him. He's not a firm ideologue. He's more of a centrist when he was in California. And then he sort of hitched his wagon Trump more lately here and the party when he helped the tea party's takeover of congress in in two thousand ten and he's just very shrewd at looking at the electoral map, seeing who needs what helping people the donors are comfortable with him in ways that they may not be comfortable with some of the more active activists elements in the party, but he sort of bridges that gap. He's a liaison for the tea party to the big money faction. And a lot of people are just who who may not be comfortable with each other or comfortable with him. He's a very good tactician. And he's obviously a survivor, and that's that's why he's he's continued to excel even even as as some of this. Some of the people who promoted in the policies promoted, you know, have not done. So well, as we know California lost half of its Republican delegation in the last election there down from fourteen members in the house to seven very large California allegation yet Kevin McCarthy is still in leadership. What can you add to that? Well, he has the relationships on Capitol Hill, and he works hard at developing those relationships. So he finds out what certain members need he studies there congressional districts. He's as ever mentioned, he's tactician. He studies congressional maps. He reads political almanacs not for fun, but to help him advance his career. So he learns about what the specific needs of members. Are he travels the country like nobody else on Capitol Hill? He's going to districts attending fundraisers stumping for his colleagues currying favor for his colleagues for moments when he needs their support to run for leadership. Those are his strengths. What are the skills? That's maybe some past recent leaders have had that Kevin McCarthy might look to others because he doesn't feel as confident in those areas himself short it's interesting because he talked during a house of cards. He would talk a lot about how Kevin Spacey came in. And we'll talk to him about how. Year run this this office, you wanna with an iron fist, and he was whip at the time and some cards started that was Kevin Spacey's role in in congress. And he doesn't have the tools of a Tom DeLay. He's you know, he can't rule the hammer. The earmarks, of course, don't exist anymore. That's the Republicans the leadership used to be able to use to kind of Lord over their members and keep them in line. So he doesn't have aren't fist, and and that for better or worse as the way the way he runs things, and that makes it harder to keep everyone in line painter at the same problem and Paul Ryan, of course, at the same problem. And so these guys are not Newt Gingrich. They're not they're not Tom DeLay. And it's it's made it harder to to hurt all those cats and the like those two years before him he will still have that really divided conference in the house of representatives, the hard core conservative tea party, and the moderates are people more willing to compromise. So what does he have available to them? Well, when he does seem to have available to him are the tools are retiring about in terms of he's sort of believes that you should let the party go in the direction at wants to go with that. It's not his job to have one solid vision. And push everyone along that may be messy. It may be we may fall short on some some votes like when they didn't vote specifying Bill that that year, which was was pretty wild. Because we hadn't seen formed ills usually something that everyone can get behind an impasse. And when when he was I think whip at the time. They fell short what can this guy count votes? And he would argue well in the end we actually because we couldn't pass that and we can pass other measures. Negotiate for more. We got more for Republicans. And so the process was Missy it didn't maybe look good for him. But Republicans got more out of it. And they got where they were trying to go in the end. Anyway. So he'll argue that for the good of the caucus. They are making progress. Even if it doesn't look as meeting tiny, and he doesn't look like as an effective leader as some of the previous Republican leaders and. Well, we're going to see a lot of him on the Sunday talk shows and out in public as the face of the Republicans in congress. He's not he's not a great orator. He's had problems in the past. Actually, a major problem when he talked about the Benghazi committee when he was running for speaker back in two thousand fifteen and got into some trouble. When he suggested on Fox News that that the Benghazi committee was mainly there for political purposes to take down Hillary Clinton, and he got into a lot of trouble for that contributed to his failing to generate enough support to become speaker. So he has had some problems in the past. But he does do quite a bit of cable TV I think specifically on Fox News on FOX business on CNBC. And I think we'll probably see him out front, especially on a lot of those more conservative business oriented networks, and I'm going to turn to you. And have you give viewers his biographical background? Where was he born where raised where he goes? Well, he's a Bakersfield native had been there forever. His historic was that when he was nineteen he bought a lottery ticket. He he won. I think it was five thousand dollars. It was like his first time playing the lottery he used that money to open a deli. I think it was called Kevin owes his big thing was making his own bread. And he said he was very successful at that business. He also went by cars, I think at auction and sell them, but but even with this background and with his father who was the firefighter in being the Bakersfield native, there's also a very sort of a decidedly political background that he had. I mean, he he saw Bill Thomas's mentor. He started working for him in his office. I think at the same time he he was opening deli. And so he got involved in politics pretty early. I mean, he was he was nineteen at that time. Eventually became his chief of staff and a very traditional into politics. Thomas was a great mentor for him and connecting with all kinds of donors. He was a natural. Building those relationships, and then he made it to the California assembly. He was in his thirty s and the time, and he very quickly became the assembly leader was it was it was a time sort of like his times in congress where you had this rebellion going on within the party, the sort of establishment centrists who've been running at were we're getting a lot of grief from the wasn't the tea party at the time. But it was the scanty tax faction that was driven by talk radio to do not bend on taxes. Do you not agree to raising taxes? Even though McCarthy was not from that. That part of the Republican party. He knew how to work with these people want to give them what they wanted and the. The establishment guy. Who was I think he was either the sixties or seventies the time. His name was was Dave Cox. And then next thing we knew McCarthy who was just sort of this likable guy who was known in California for. You know, he he had a house that they all rented. There were a bunch of Republicans who who lived there when they were in Sacramento and. He was friends when the pollster Frank Lenzi. They would watch tapes of themselves talking in the legislature and great each other on how they were doing, and you know, just because people liked him. He he got this leadership position. And that was in two thousand four well, it's got long the very earliest that he is in our archives is seven years before I came to congress. This is two thousand at the GOP convention, and let's watch Kevin McCarthy and his earlier incarnation..

"The hour on first light. Sometimes I feel like we're playing name that tune. But the House Republicans have their eyes on one of their own Iowa. Congressman Steve king, Steve king, probably not too happy this morning because House Republicans are blocking him from serving on any committees in the new congress. They're punishing him for his comments about white supremacy. The thing is if you're a member of congress committees that all the where all the work is done without committee assignments, you have no power. I mean, you can still have an office that helps your constituents get their social security checks, or maybe help a veteran get some some medical assistance or dealing with any problems that relate to the federal government. But you have no power because any legislation is coming out of committees. You can introduce any bills that you want, but they go right into a committee. And if you're not on the committee, you have no power to write to change things to Mark up. You can vote I guess on the floor of that's about it. And so the question is is that enough punishment is that too much punishment? And as I said a few moments ago, you know, he's been saying these kind of things for years and years and years Steve king seems to have an attitude that the white race is superior race and others are therefore inferior. He makes it makes it very clear he does not want immigrants coming in and changing the character of America. He says it over and over again, frankly, his latest comments didn't seem all that out of line. But maybe it's just the, you know, the time where the Republicans have finally said we've had enough we don't want this in our ranks. What do you think about that? Call us at eight hundred seven three six three six six six. So the House Republicans who and they do house. The minority leader Kevin McCarthy, he's actually he'll be working with the steering committee folks on terms of who gets what assignments for the Republicans, and they're saying you don't get any committee assignments. So it's not that the Democrats are doing that to Steve king is the Republicans. What House Democrats are doing they're seeking formal punishment for king? Although it's really just a introducing a resolution disapproving of him. And so they want to condemn white supremacy white nationalism, and that could be voted on today. But that's really just symbolic gesture saying we don't like what you're doing actually removing him from the committee's is where the that's the real the real damage to his ability to get anything done. He can talk can vote he conservative constituents back home in their relations with the federal government. But that will be about it. So how did we get here? Let's check in now with Linda Kenyon. Our Capitol Hill correspondent who's been following the saga up. Steve king, Linda, I will not stand back as a leader of this party believing in this nation that all are created equal that that stands are continues to stand. It have any role with us. Iowa Representative Steve king is getting called on the carpet serious conversation with congressman Steve king on his future. Enroll in this Republican party house minority leader Kevin McCarthy, speaking on CBS, his face the nation after the Iowa congressmens recent comments in defense of white supremacy. Those comments appeared in a New York Times article last week in which Steve king. Question. Why label white nationalist had become offensive? He also skirted an apology during a speech on the house floor on Friday. It's true that like the founding fathers. I am an advocate for western civilization values. And that I profoundly believe that America is the greatest tangible expression of these ideals the world has ever seen under any fair political definition. I am simply an American nationalist, the one thing he said he did regret was this higher. Regret the heartburn that has poured forth upon this congress in this country. And especially in my state it in my congressional district that wasn't good enough for leader McCarthy..

"Does not that does occasionally. But you blame the victim before giving a wrote speech because apparently the word is out that Jared and Ivanka are the ones that like you gotta say something about this, dad. And then he gave a half-hearted speech. There's no place for this, etc. And the media is the enemy of the people.

"I mean it was a great example of what kevin mccarthy said so basically he said if there's no collusion it's time for muller to end his investigation and he also said there has been no collusion so far so now kevin mccarthy has taken us to the only crime that counts is collusion this is where the the the house republicans are now it's a good example of you know we have talked quite a bit about paul ryan on this on this program in how little we like him but if the republicans keep the house kevin mccarthy is the speaker of the house he is a now he is in line for the presidency and he has decided already that he is going to be even more of a kiss ass then paul ryan i mean we should know this is the guy that picked out trumps favorite skills to give him when he goes to the he calls mike kevin diverse i'm sorry it was only pink starbursts from my kevin to don he calls him my kevin and you know what you are his cabinet you are so his kevin so i mean it's it's the reason why we take us back because if it if it remains in republicans hand republican hands is there any doubt that the day after the election kevin mccarthy in donald trump are going to shut down this investigation and we will never hear from robert muller from rod rosenstein from any of these people again i mean it will happen immediately when it will be the end of the wanting to know to which i think is like oh only collision matters we actually quite recently had a debate as to whether or not the president can obstruct justice his name was book lynton and there are many many members of congress and senators who voted to impeach him and then remove him for office for obstruction of justice which now the republican president does not believe is a crime does not free an impeachable totally fine totally cool why does this matter to people it matters beyond this russia investigation medically at fox had just sort of a great very good piece is a very good piece about this and he said if this is right if this legal argument is.
