"So that when you do get that ballot in the general election, you can choose between a Republican who's normal and democrat who's normal. And then, you know, it's like, you know, choosing between your favorite, desserts, right? As opposed to. I don't know like a can of. On eating cooked spinach that has expired and dessert so it kind of ups your for better representation. Right. So that's one way to put it. But then again, I have not always practice strategic voting myself. I took I can say this now because the election's over. But in the Republican primary gubernatorial primary, we had a truly terrifying candidate Briscoe Bach. Who was our secretary of state, and you know, if you've heard of him that's why I would not want him to win. And then we had our current governor. Who was governor Brownback Lieutenant governor, and I had a good personal relationship with them. He was a nice guy. But I disagreed with him on almost all of his policy issues. I think you can work with people without agreeing with them, and especially you should when you're in the legislature. But when it's you in your private moment in the ballot box in that voting booth is strategic voting necessarily the best thing to do. Because what I ended. Up doing was I cast about for neither of those people cast a ballot for the moderate Republican who didn't have a chance in you know, in winning that at all, but I voted with my heart. And then it was truly frightening because I did end up regretting that a little bit because our Republican nominee was none other than Chris co Bach. And so I found myself sweating a little bit thinking. Oh, man. What have I done? He might become governor. I made this much more likely by voting with my art. But then again, obviously, Kansas overwhelmingly supported Laura Kelly for our governor. Thank goodness because she's done a wonderful job. And you know, she is even Democrats think about Democrats nationally, but Democrats in Kansas, even the more Liberal Democrats in Kansas are pretty are pretty chill or pretty close to the center. So, but yes, I mean, so that's sort of my own personal dilemma, I think I think that it is a tremendously personal choice. And I don't know what the voting registration laws are like in your state. We cannot switch parties after the filing deadline even as voting citizens. That's one of those things where okay, it would make sense. If you could see your ballot before you could switch states with same day, voter registration. You look and see where you can do the most good, and that's what I would recommend. But when you have states with hard voting deadlines like we do here in Kansas. It's difficult because again, we had a very crowded primary for both governor and for the congressional seat up here. And so we have a lot of people who switched to the Democratic Party because they felt that they were able to do more good there. So as you can see it's a more convoluted discussion when you talk about do you vote with your heart or d you vote, you know with a cold pragmatic strategy because sometimes one works, but sometimes it does. Doesn't and it's really a case by case basis. Well, I think that this happens much more on the state level than in the national level the party switching in these sort of thought processes, even as voters we my personal state Senator former state Senator switched parties three times he went from democrat to Republican to independent. So that happened. I think that happens. My question is beyond the strategic thinking of how you're going to vote or how you're going to register. What do you see as the benefits of the party? Was there any training for you? You said your state Senator or the young Republicans recruited you. So you were very active in the sort of party structure..

"Maybe if I'd had someone like her to look up to as a young eighteen year old woman. I may have stayed in Kansas, Brian. I also wanted to ask you about Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas. He announced that he will not run for re election next year. What's our sense of how that might go? I mean secretary of state Mike Pompeo has been kind of floated some say that he has a good chance of winning. If he were to run, but he says he has no intention of running right now. What does that look like it's going to be crowded field? Obviously there has been a very public effort to recruit Pompeo. And if if he does change his mind, I would expect most Republicans to get out of the way. But if he doesn't it's going to be a very crowded field Senate present Susan Wagle who was mentioned by governor Kelley in your show. She's exploring a run the state treasures are running. I joked with congressman Ron ESTES yesterday that he was the only Republican in Kansas who didn't seem to want to run for the seat. And he assured me that well he didn't want to run he could have if he wanted to. So you should expect a very crowded Republican field. I wouldn't expect Democrats to take the race seriously unless you have someone like a Chris co Bach who is a divisive figure emerges Republican front runner. Democrats are kind of watching this race with a little bit of interest. If there is a device. Of candidate who seems to be gaining steam with the Republicans. You could see them actually make an effort to make this a competitive race. There's a it's been be an uphill battle. Because a democrat hasn't won a Senate seat in Kansas since nineteen thirty two, and we should be clear, by the way, Mike Pompeo used to be a congressman representing district in Kansas for three terms. Michael emailed, the expansion of Medicare is contentious because federal government funding of the programme phases out and the Bill for services becomes the responsibility of the state. I wonder how you see the governor's argument in Kansas as compared to some of the other arguments about why Medicaid expansion is still worth doing. So I think what the governor is is looking at is. You know, she's she's trying to make this into an economic argument. If you saw that she and that's been a the kind of consistent democratic refrain, which is this is federal money that can be coming into Kansas that we're passing up every year. And so I think it's you know, she is trying to make this as a kind of this as an argument that makes fiscal sense for the state. I think anticipating criticism like that. Liz tweeted as a lifelong Oklahoman, it's refreshing to hear how our neighbors are addressing Medicaid expansion and education hope Oklahoma can learn what bipartisan means with regards to the presidential election cycle before. I let you go. There are more than a dozen Democrats in the race. There could be two dozen by the time the show is over the big keeps getting bigger and bigger, and they're appealing to the base by pushing ideas like abolishing the electoral college, the green new deal packing. The supreme court. How does that affect democrat? Like, Laura Kelly who. Got a govern in a largely conservative state before we go. I I think that could put pressure on someone someone like lower Kelly, obviously, I think, you know, she she took a interesting stance when it came to the Lectoure college, but things like packing, the supreme court that probably would not fly very well in in Kansas where you have a lot of people who are conservative who who would get their antennas up. If you start talking seriously about that, you know, I think thinking back to what her role is in the presidential election. She someone who's being seen as a model for defeating Trumpism because she she defeated a candidate who had very close ties to Trump Trump came and campaigned for and she approached it with a very kind of moderate centrist message. So the people who are pushing the who are pushing the Democratic Party in that election. I think are looking to her as an example of how to proceed with this election, Brian Lowery, Washington.

"I actually had someone tweet tweeted me the sporting about Brownback in coal, you're leaving Kelly with a surplus. Well, that's not quite accurate. It is true. She came in with one, but it's partially because the legislature forced that to happen. Bobby emailed. How would the governor compares Sam Brownback tax cuts with the Trump tax cuts? Brian. What's your take? They are similar but not identical. A lot of the same thinkers, Stephen Moore. Obviously who's been in the news this week because the president plans to nominate him to the Federal Reserve. Had was influential in crafting both the Trump plan and the Brownback plan. The Trump cuts aren't quite as aggressive when it comes to these cutting taxes on business owners. But overall, I think there are a lot of similarities in the philosophy. And that's one thing we saw over and over again is Democrats were winning to Kansas as a as a warning sign to Washington and say, look, this is what happened when we try the supply-side economics. Remember being at a town hall where Claire mccaskill was crossed the river from Kansas since they look over there like we don't want that to happen. I wonder what she thought of her answer about the electoral college Joshua wrote on our Facebook page. I'm amazed at a governor of a flyover state, which support ending the electoral college Kansas will not fit into the national scene. When it does not have a vote in the presidential election, Kansas has six electoral votes right now. So it would still have that piece of its say. But what do you make of the governor's answer about the electoral college? I actually I'm not surprised with it. I think it's what I would say is there are a lot of cans into who feel who feel disenfranchised by the electoral college, even though obviously the electoral college gives more weight to small states overall votes. If you are say, a democrat who lives in Kansas who lives in one of those bluer pockets, you might feel like your vote doesn't matter because you're in such a state that is a Republican even if you live in a district that has democratic leaning your vote doesn't doesn't end up being counted at the national level. So if you can think about the Kansas City area where you have the border between Missouri, and Kansas cut through you have a pretty democratic area to congressional districts that went for Hillary Clinton in the last election, but are both in states that went by double digits to Trump. So I can think for voters in those areas they'd like to see it. I mean, I can I can understand why why she said that I would also say Kansas doesn't get a lot of attention right now. Come the general. Action. It's it's pretty well. Assumed that it's going to go Republican democrat hasn't won it since Lyndon Johnson. And so right now, you're not seeing candidates come to Kansas and the general election. You do see candidates come to Kansas during the Caucasus which happened. You know, not not immediately do happen fairly early in the year end, Ken matter. That's when we see candidates come to Kansas, but the general it's pretty much written off Allison wrote on our Facebook page. I was so happy to hear governor Kelley discussed the importance of progressive ideals, keeping young people in Kansas and attracting young people to move to Kansas..

"And so there are Republican lawmakers who their base wants them to vote against anything ObamaCare elated, and they're Democrats who obviously they want their politicians to go. Very hard for that. So it's really key. Moderate Republicans are the ones that are gonna make or break it. What about the debate over work requirements for Medicaid, the sense that if you if you benefit for Medicaid, you either need to be working seeking work or having some kind of community contribution to remain qualified? There was a ruling this week from federal judge that blocks Medicaid work requirements in Kentucky and Arkansas Kansas as I understand it does not have a work requirement. But one of its former governors Jeff Collier said he'd support one. What is your sense of say the cans and congressional delegation? What did they think about work requirement? I would say rhetorically in Kansas, the work requirement issue or or rather this issue of giving Medicaid to able bodied adults that has been a very powerful rhetorical comment against Medicaid expansion from Republicans at the state level as far as the congressional delegation. A one thing I'll point out to point out is the. Moran took as his guests to the state of the union, Kansas house majority leader, Dan Hawkins who has been the most outspoken opponent of Medicaid expansion in Kansas. And who who confirmed that he spoke with the Senator about that other than other than cherise? David's. I don't think you have any member of the the congressional delegation, speaking out with with governor Kelley on this. She obviously congresswoman David supports a governor Kelley on this. She also talked about the so called Kansas experiment, governor Kelley did with very drastic tax cuts. I wonder if they are any lessons we can learn from that as it relates to her relationship with Republicans Republicans relationship to tax policy. It must've gotten really dire in Kansas for Republicans to say, let's raise taxes. Oh, it was. I mean, this was you got to understand that this was years. This was years of budget shortfall so too. To to give you to give you a picture of Asli in twenty twelve the legislature drastically cut taxes eliminated. Income tax for the owners of most businesses sharply reduce rates across the board. And it was promised that this was going to spur real economic growth that this wouldn't harm the state's fiscal outlook the week after Sam Brownback was reelected governor. It turns out the states facing a budget hole. That's when it's that's when that comes out when the the state's budget director announces we're facing a budget hole. So sharp cuts had to be made that session there had to be sales tax rates that Brownback had two signed into law himself just to keep the state of float couple months. Go by facing another budget hole, and that cycle repeated year after year after year until the point where you had majorities of in the legislature, which was a heavily Republican legislature. Override the governor override Brownback, obviously governor Kelley was part of that coalition, but I should note that the speaker of the Kansas house, the Dan Hawkins who I mentioned earlier who's now those guys voted to override Brownback because it was the only way to basically keep the lights on in the state, and it allowed governor Kelley to then enter office with a surplus, and that's actually been a really interesting dynamic..

"But even then I think it it Hughes read with regards to that one of our listeners. Thurston tweeted, would you say that Kansas is much more purple than the deep red that the coasts and the media often think of I would say Kansas is still largely read, but with some blue pockets indefinitely, some purple pockets of one thing as she brought up the Kansas City metropolitan area that's trending blue. And I think you saw that with cherise David's election. You saw that with how well governor Kelley performed in the Kansas City metro area and actually down across the ballot. Democrats won all of the statewide races in Johnson county, which Johnson county was traditionally a Republican leaning area. It was a suburban kind of country club Republican area. But. That is certainly starting to trend to a bit more democratic during the the Trump era. There was a real rejection of co Bach and Israel rejection of of of Kevin Yoder. So I would say that area is trending blue. Which is just it. You know, it buffers Missouri, which had a blue district, Missouri. You have some pockets of blue in Wichita and Pika, and certainly Lawrence Kansas, very blue. But overall, the state has is very read with regards to governor Kelley governing with the legislature. That is dominated by Republicans. There are eleven governors in this position right now President Obama was in this position during his final two years. I wonder what we learned from governor Kelley that might inform how those other eleven how those other governors might govern particularly because she strikes me as really content in her spaces a policy wonk as kind of a pragmatic policy thinker as opposed to a more ideological. Vision driven candidate. I mean in education funding, obviously, it it has dominated. Every Kansas legislative session that I've seen. I almost feels like it's dominated Kansas since the beginning of time education funding, I would say her plan on education funding was much more moderate than a lot of Democrats or even the school districts her base in the education advocacy, community it, I mean that it's it's worth noting that there were some Democrats who were against her plan because it didn't go far enough. But that was a way she was able to get Republican lawmakers on board. Also, the fact that she is in way the way that she is pursuing Medicaid expansion of going through the legislature is very key. There is some grayness here the Affordable Care Act gave governors the ability to unilaterally pursue Medicaid expansion. However during the Brownback years the legislature passed a Bill which governor Brownback signed into law requiring the governor to seek legislative approval. And she is adhering. To that. And she is trying to finalize in the legislature to do that, even as even as Republican leaders themselves are very much against that. Yeah. Why is that because there have been some more conservative states that have decided to expand Medicaid in their states? What's the hold up in Kansas? It's I think it's it's at this point. It's become a little bit of a wedge issue. It's I mean, it's, but one thing that's worth noting their rural hospitals in Kansas that have closed and those hospitals point to the failure to expand, Medicaid as one of the reasons, that's one reason why there is a groundswell. And I mean, she she leaned into that issue more. So than the the democratic candidate who had ran into fourteen who largely avoided it because you know, at that point ObamaCare was very kind of toxic political thing that she leaned into that as one of her key promises, but for for the Republicans who oppose it there the business. This community in Kansas is still. Is still against the the Kansas chamber of commerce and groups like that. And so it somewhat of a base issue..

"This is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson. We are discussing consensus building with Kansas governor, Laura Kelly and considering ways to succeed when there are people actively pursuing your political failures or difficulties with some questions about the work between a democratic governor Andy largely Republican legislature now governor Kelley, you issued your first veto this week as I understand it on a Bill that was estimated to cut state taxes by a half billion dollars. Over three years in your veto message. He wrote, quote, the tax Bill would have created another self-inflicted budget crisis, unquote. And you put self inflicted budget crisis in quotes, I assume you're referring to what came to be known as the Kansas experiment under your predecessor, governor Brownback. That's exactly what I always heard ferring to you know, in twenty twelve and then again at twenty thirteen the Kansas legislature voted for radical tax cuts in the very first year alone. Revenues plummeted by seven hundred million dollars. That's more than we lost during the entire great recession. So the impact was deep, and it was swift. If we were to let the tax cuts that have been proposed go through this year. We would take an immediate you turn, you know, in in two thousand seventeen by the way, a bipartisan coalition of legislators came. Together and be in essentially repealed, the Brownback tax experiment, if we were to impose tax cuts again right now, we take an immediate u-turn. And we would we would fall off the cliff as we did that because, you know, at least in two thousand twelve twenty thirteen when those tax cuts came to be we were able to fill some of the gaps between revenue and expenses using you know, various pots of money around the state, particularly our department of transportation our pension system, a pool money investment account there there were different kinds of things or things that could be eliminated. We we eliminated the Kansas bioscience authority that freed up fifty million dollars. And we use that just to plug holes. We did all of those things and bought time before there was just no more to do. And that's why we reversed. In two thousand seventeen if we make cuts now, we don't have any cushion, you we will.

Don't think about when they think about Kansas. I think partly partly that is because tickly for the last eight years. Most of what's come out of Kansas has not been good news. You know, we had the tax experiment that caused our state to crash, and you know, and then obviously we had crisco Bach in his voter suppression in an anti immigrant stances. And we also unfortunately, took some some action that was pretty negative regarding LGBTQ, we're starting to undo a lot of that. And get the real face of Kansas backout. I did want to ask you about some of that. But you mentioned that Kansas is very common sense kind of state is that what helped you build consensus between Democrats and moderate Republicans just taking a kind of a common sense approach. Common sense in collaboration. Think of all the barn. Raisings that happened in the state of Kansas as we were developing as a state, you know, that's how cannons operate. They worked together to for the common. Good. And I think that's the approach. I always took in the in the state Senate. I was the ranking minority on the budget committee. So I was in negotiations with Republicans regularly trying to put her our budget together budget is policy. So yeah, it was important for me to be able to find common ground one of the big critiques. I think of democratic politics nationwide is a focus on social issues that make some people kind of edgier uncomfortable, your first act as governor was to signed an executive order that reinstated protections for LGBT workers. It was something that your predecessor governor Sam Brownback eliminated back in twenty fifteen. How do social issues especially Forni ones, like LGBTQ rights and so forth affect? Your Bill your ability to create political consensus. Well, you know, they're they're really are think already is consensus on the LGBTQ issue. I think that governor Brownback went to the extreme, you know, if you had come to Kansas maybe fifteen years ago when we were more there. I can remember the very first vote that I took in the state Senate was the question of pudding, basically a discriminatory clause in our constitution, banning gay marriage. I voted no on that. Then it did pass. But but since then, you know, Kansas have really evolved from that position. And I think they understand the LGBTQ issues better. But they also understand that you cannot have a state you cannot attract young people. You can't keep your young people here if we have really regressive policies like that in place. We're speaking to governor Laura. Kelly democrat from Kansas about building political consensus in Kansas..

"This is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson. In Washington last year's midterms were big for Democrats taking over leadership in the house and in seven states. Now comes the hard part getting meaningful laws passed our project. One a across America is digging into the issues that resonate with odors and seeing just how divided this country actually is Kansas is a good place to look a red state just elected a democratic governor Laura Kelly beat a very conservative Republican crisco Bach in last year's race. Now, she faces a legislature where Republicans hold super majorities in both chambers. Some GOP lawmakers have said she has no mandate to govern because she won with less than half the vote. So what does it take to pass laws and fulfill campaign promises with some strong political headwinds joining us from Kansas public radio to discuss it is governor Laura Kelly governor, welcome to one A. Thanks so much. Casual so your victory required, the support of moderate Republican voters, and I think that's one of the reasons why people around the country are looking at you to figure out how you did it. So how'd you do it? Well, you're right. I did have the pleasure of much moderate Republican support throughout the campaign, including a to former Republican governors Bill graves and Mike Hayden and two former Republican US senators, Sheila Frahm, and Nancy Kassebaum who all came out in endorsed Mike campaign that was incredibly important. I think it sent a huge signal to Republicans all across the state that I was somebody they trust somebody work with. And I was somebody who shared their values taking that now into the governor's office. You probably know that I was a state Senator for fourteen years..

"With a still is Representative Randy Garber. Now. Randy you you're not a freshman. So I don't have to ask you some of the questions I've been doing with some of the new legislators like why'd you run and that although. Have pain in there awhile? It makes you wonder why people run for this. But I do want to ask you some of the questions we've got some things coming over. So you're going to kind of give us our legislative brief what's been going on. What's coming up? I know SP twenty two. That's the quote, unquote, the windfall tax Bill. Yes. Espy twenty to pass the Senate this week twenty six to fourteen not a veto-proof veto proof margin. But thanks to a couple of thanks go. Rhino republicans. That's right. Want to raise your tax Bill? Does is it decouples the itemized deductions from the federal use under Kansas law at this point if the federal deduction if you don't I demise addiction at the federal level. You can't you can't itemize at the state level. Well, as you know, the federal raise that itemized deduction to twenty four thousand dollars. So most people won't be itemizing on their federal. Tax form anymore. So that would effectively a tax increase. It's a tax bet. You bet. That's exactly what it is. And that's what I've told folks. And of course, the governor ran on the fact that she wasn't going to raise taxes well by not signing this Bill into law. She will be raising taxes on America. But cheers, she you know, she needs that money for all her pet projects. So as I said it passed the Senate. So that means it's in the house. Now, I don't know if we're going to get it through this week or not. But I think some pretty quick action on that I would like to get to the floor by Thursday. But I'm not sure it will. And so we can put it on the governor's desk and let her make the decision. So if you had to predict how many Republicans do we have we have eighty four registered or registered. We both know that they are not eighty four Republic. We did have eighty five Republicans elected. Yeah. And one got came out of the closet and decided to be a democrat. Well, and we also have a few Republicans that are not really Republican. That's exactly right. So what do you think the number is, my guess is? It's. Seventy. Gonna say close to eighty I think we'll get. I don't think we'll ever have eighty four with what we got. Well, only way we get to eighty four. And this is what I've said repeatedly only way you get the eighty four is if people make phone if they call they get on the phone and they call their elected representatives, and I call the two senators Republican senators who voted to raise their taxes and tell them no album. I don't want my taxes going up. You're one point two billion dollar retroactive tax increase was enough. And that's the only way this is going to change. I was kind of disappointed with the Senate in one respect. There was an amendment offered that took the income tax away from social security in Kansas. I saw a great amendment went down couldn't even get five people to stand to get a head count. So we we don't have any openness there. We talk about open government. Yeah. And we didn't get it there. But that's the way it goes. I don't know that may be offered in the house too. I think you show you what happened. I. You know, me I'm able to raise their hands. And we can get a roll-call on it. I you know, me I did a lot of roll-call. Rick requests, a lot of roll-call votes earned push for transparency the entire time. I was in there and famed for running amendments on stuff. I'd love to see them run that what else. This week. There's not a lot going on this week. I will tell you there's going. There's a Bill that I introduced in utilities committee. That's put some setbacks on wind turbine, industry parks, wind industry parks. I call them wind farm, I don't think their farms at all. But. We've expressed some concerns not much growing. Exactly, right. The only reason we have those things because of subsidies and production tax credits and crony capitalism is exactly what it is. And I think we need to protect our citizens from some of the possibly hazardous things that those that happens when you have those wind farms close to you or even been studies, it affects animals and things like that. So we're working on some setbacks there, they do have some interesting exceptions. I know when I served my first two years in the house, I served on utilities, and we had hearings on in particular the difference between an oil rig and a wind turbine and the difference in regulations between the two is actually stunning. Well, they're unregulated commodity, essentially. Yeah, if a bird flies into an oil rig, the owner of the oil rig will be fine. That's right. And it's a substantial fine. However birds fly into wind turbines all the time. And there's no fine. There's no legislators they are exempt, and it's really interesting. I was reading that this. This week forty two hundred endangered species. They can kill on one wind project now systematically break their winter, but it into different projects. So that number increases X potentially as they do that. So they are allowed. We we we get fined up to a million dollars for killing an eagle they can kill forty two hundred thirty years. The thing is don't get me wrong. I support you know, let's let's do it all let's do gas. Let's do oil and gas. Let's do nuclear let's do wind. But let's have a level playing field at it. And let the government other than making sure that the product is safe and that the market is fair and competitive beyond that the government is a get out of it. So if you're gonna over-regulate one industry, then over-regulate all of them or better, yet don't overregulate any of them and let the free market dictate. Wouldn't it be nice? If we could have a true free market in our or we could go with the green new deal and let cow farting and everything else go by the wayside. But within ten years all this stuff's going to be gone anyway, because they're going to get rid of it all patch. Right. It's it's interesting over the years if you'd watch when the production tax credit was going to expire. There wasn't any building of wind turbines pretty amazing as soon as I found out. They renewed it then they started building again mazing talk a little bit about the budget. The Laura Kelly budget as you know, the the. K twelve funding from the rest of the budget. So they did actually separate that out. Yes. So you can vote for one and I've over the other. Yes. So how do you you still have to pass it? Is there a pay for in the in the K through twelve portion? How are they paying for it? How are they paying far? Yeah. I mean from my understanding is she's asking for three hundred million in you know, how we pay for things. John. The money tree. That's right. It's money the money tree. It's the Money Train. It's called. Yeah. It's called raising taxes raising taxes. That's exactly right. So I don't want to talk a whole lot about the K twelve budget. But I'd like to talk about some things that Laura Kelly has put in her budget one is the amount of money. She's giving two different organizations proposes a. Sixty three hundred sixty three million dollars from all funds. Twenty two million from the state general fund for two and a half percent state employees pay raise. At a cost of the Kansas taxpayers. Okay. Twenty one twenty one point three percent pay increase for the judges. Yeah. That one we've debated this one before. And you're talking about judges that are making over one hundred thousand a year is this. That's just the judges. Or is that the nonjudicial because the nonjudicial folks, I get and they deserve. And I voted race for your digital employees. Eighteen point six percent one percent for just the judge making one hundred thousand a year. Yeah. Okay. There's money whilst. But it also proposes adding almost four hundred new state employees four hundred growing government is one way to drive the economy fifty five in the child welfare position, fifty five new employees at a cost of four million dollars. So we continue to see that. She continued. Oh, expanding Medicaid. Oh, well, yeah. We don't do that. We don't even wanna talk. No because her per figures on that or just flat out way out. But anyways, I'm assuming you guys are going to gut that thing and come up with something on your own. We are looking at federally. Qualified health centers called they're actually called the safety net centers. Sure that would be for the people who are who are seeking medical attention, and it would be a much lower cost to our state, and it would be controlled by people who have a stake in how they spend their money. It's not like Medicaid expansion where you just give it all out. And by the way, also Medicaid expansion is not going to save our rural Haas. Now, we know that way, we know the folks at independence in fort, Scott. We'll tell you what that's right. They knew that the owners of the independence hospital admitted as much they said, it might have delayed the inevitable, but it was still inevitable. Well, Randy, I appreciate you you stop. And by giving us the the legislative update and. You know, if if you need anything for me, you need to folks to get motivated, let us know motivated. Thank you so much for allowing me to be on your show. Of course, when we get back county Commissioner, Michael O'Donnell will be.

"And so you know, it they didn't get it in time for the midterms. But they got it. Sometimes when you fight you win sometimes when you are fighting in an environment that seems absolutely unforgiving an impossible. Sometimes the environment changes around you, and it allows you to win one of the places that democrat Laura Kelly campaign for governor when she was on her way to winning the state house, one of the places she campaigned was in dodge city what she campaigned on their improving voters access to the pulse. Well, now voters access to the polls is improved in dodge city, and she's in charge of state government and crisco back is unemployed. But again ground truth in dodge city this next time you will no longer have to leave town devote like you did before. I mean, there's still there's still a couple of things to watch. Here. The case was dismissed without prejudice. Which means that case can come back to life pretty much instantly. If the plaintiffs come to believe that they need to do that in order to hold the county and hold the state to account right to make sure that Hispanic voters are getting equal treatment in that town and in Kansas. It can come back. That's what dismissing it without prejudice means. And if you think about it, it is still a little bit nuts that for thirteen thousand voters. There's only two plan to polling places in dodge city. But it's better. I mean, at least two polling places is to more than what they had which is zero. So it's not like that fight is permanently over, but they did win what they were trying to get a win is a win for one hundred and for the and for the voters in that town who are not gonna take it lying down. And it does show you that things change even in places where it seems like they cannot ever change things change. Kansas voted for Trump. I twenty points two years later. They voted for Laura Kelly to become the democratic governor of that state that same night that Laura Kelly became the democratic governor of Kansas. That's the same night. Of course that Democrats won control of the house of representatives in Washington. And over these last few days, we have started to see the substance of what that is going to mean in terms of how your federal government works how congress works how it spends its time. What it works on the first Bill of the Democrats brought up and held hearings on is what they call HR one. It's a big omnibus Bill on voting rights and anti-corruption measures. This is legislation that sorta hits all the high points on small d democratic reform. It would stop a partisan gerrymandering for congressional districts. So instead of having state legislatures draw the congressional districts to maximally benefit their own party. Instead, it would be independent nonpartisan redistricting in every state. So you don't have all these guaranteed Republican seats or guaranteed democratic seats, and it would be all across the country. It would make election day a federal holiday, so nobody has to skip voting because they can't get time off work to do it. It would guarantee early voting days for every federal election in every state in the country right now some states offer early. Devoting? Some don't it would established nationwide voter registration where you have the opportunity to opt out if you don't want to be registered. But otherwise, you're registered it would stop states from dumping registered voters off their roles in purges, like the ones that are advocated nationwide by Chris co back it would make the president and the supreme court subject to the same ethics and anticorruption rules as everybody else in government. Imagine that it would force dark money groups and super PACS to have to disclose their donors. So we'd have no more anonymous money flooding into election campaigns. When when the Democrats I introduced this legislation you always pick something to be HR one right to show. This is our first priority. This is what we want to be known for us. We take the gavel when the Democrats I put forward this legislation. I don't think the Republicans worried too much about it or even thought too much about it at first when the Democrats held their first hearings on HR one this week and the Republican witnesses just got roasted and Republican members of congress had a very hard time..

That's according to a special report from the CDC that found rising rates of overdose deaths suicide and chronic liver disease, even as Americans improve survival rates for other well known causes of death like cancer more from Laura Kelly health reporter at the Washington Times. Lord, give us some findings though. This is a trend that how researchers had started to observe over the past few years that are like expectancy is going down in two thousand fourteen average American could expect to about seventy point nine years old. That's now down to about seventy point six, which I mean, does it seem like a big difference? When you start to look at it compared to other countries where their life expectancy on average is eighty one years old and above. Discrepancies. And when we remain on those numbers on gender women with longer than men so mannered are dying at an earlier age, seventy seventy six seventy five. And then also when you look at race African American men are dying. Maybe even by I don't know the. But it can be as well as a seventy seventy three researchers at the finish control prevention, why take a closer look at by the death rates why we were dying at earlier ages on. And I think we all know what it called the opioid epidemic has taken I in US and into seventy two thousand people died I would drug overdose. So that is one of the main drivers at bringing expectancy it's really killing off people between the age of twenty five to thirty four.
