"It's a middays with Mark congressman Mark pocan taking your calls for the hour here on the Tom Hartman program And Eric and Harrisburg Pennsylvania you are on the earth representative Pokémon Good afternoon Tom and congressman cocaine Hey Eric Hi my question Being that the military industrial complex will so much power right And whenever Congress Biden administration when they are funding comes up for the military right There's no opposition pretty much on either side Is it possible that along with that you can put something from the progressive idea like the build back better plan If not all of them parts of it I don't know if you could call it an omnibus bill to say okay we'll put this through but we want this with it Is that at all possible That's my question Yeah so there are some bills that are a little broader and more generic like our omnibus because the budget process generally doesn't pass the way it appears on Saturday morning cartoons with the 12 appropriation bills going through both House and being signed into law And that's where just about anything can be there And there are some bills where things get added on However defense is not always one of those And I do want to push back though a little because when we try to add a 10% cut we got over 90 members of Congress Now again you need 218 to pass something But there were 90 plus members of Congress who wanted to cut the budget 10% So it's not true that it is automatically goes through The problem really is Eric is that it has become a jobs program I don't think people look at defense budget as money that's going to our national defense as much as it goes to people in their district contractors their district constituents in their district through jobs And that's part of the problem We can't just fund things even if they're bad programs but people look at it as the jobs of their district and that's why we've talked about trying to have a more modern definition of defense because I think it's more likely we could redirect dollars than necessarily cut dollars for that reason Of the jobs issue And it absolutely is necessary But there are plenty of people who do work towards that It's just you know it often becomes difficult because it becomes a district issue and jobs in your district We just have 20 seconds This goes back to I believe it was in the 19 70s or 80s when the Defense Department are these various defense contractors kind of got together and said let's make sure every single district in a congressional district in America has a defense plan at my right Yeah absolutely I have a company that makes a product as big as my pinky that goes on submarines and every year they asked me to buy more submarines in the Department of Defense requests That's the problem It's a jobs program For me I don't have as big of a footprint for some people to put it from quite large And I understand the pressure the problem is we.

"Shalom Jim on the bottom whatever it may be for you It's the end of the week for us And I see an error message on your tune track whether it's Sean you may want to check that out Mercury's retrograde of course Anyhow we've got a lot coming up in the program today and just a few moments of Congress and Mark pocan will be with us for the hour We're going to do middays with Mark Friday edition He'll be taking your calls for the hour on whatever's on your mind Two O two 8 O 8 9 9 25 Also in the second hour of the program I want to get into my rant today published over harbin report dot com Republicans learned to promote fascism at the feet of the master and no I'm not talking about Donald Trump I'm talking about Victor Orban We'll get into the details of that in the second hour Also the January 6th committee is now investigating capital reconnaissance tours by Republican lawmakers This is treason or domestic terrorism or completely innocent We'll discuss that in the second hour of the program along with conservative Charlie Sykes suggesting that he has found the Achilles heel for the GOP He won't be with us but I have a story about it I think he's fascinating In our third hour how and when will schools get back freedom of speech Young people are testifying before Congress right now It's pretty shocking Also new polls shows that over 65% of Americans back roe V wade is going to help Democrats in November We'll talk about that in the third hour and a shocker for our third hour Tyson Foods drove the draft of Donald Trump's order keeping meat packing plants open during the great pandemic Very strange stuff More corruption from the Trump administration But to start the program often for the rest of this hour congressman Mark pocan will be with us He is the former co chair of the congressional progressive caucus of course still a member in good standing of that organization and considerable influence He's on the appropriations education and labor committees in the U.S. House of Representatives where he represents the second district of Wisconsin His website is pocan POC and house dot gov you can tweet him at rep Mark pocan Congressman pokin It's always nice to have you with us Thanks so much for joining us What's on your mind today What is at the top of your agenda I'll tell you we were in D.C. this week I got back last night to Wisconsin where I'm at now But you know we had bills trying to address the issues of price gouging on gasoline trying to address formula for babies And you know Republicans are just so in in trying to do anything with us because they see it all as about the election I understand they almost all voted against formula for babies I mean honest to God Every Republican in the House of Representatives except what about 6 or 8 of them Against formula for babies I thought you kissed babies when you're a politician I didn't think you'd starve them Well unless Donald Trump tells you not to That's the problem The modern Democrat or Republican Party doesn't do things like the Republican Party used to They do what their leader their cult leader says And that's Donald Trump But on top of the very busy week we had legislatively we also saw Donald Trump lose at a few elections this week and have some very potential neural losses but we're going to find out in Pennsylvania But some extremists came through and he lost in some areas I think for progressives we had a pretty good night Short of North Carolina you know summer Lee looks like she's going to win the seat and Pennsylvania I think three and a half million was spent by apac against her a big failure for big money in Oregon Andrea Salinas won in an open seat and she had $12 million from a crypto billionaire put against her for someone and she beat that back And so it was a good night for not only progressive candidates but beating back some of this really big ugly money that's been coming into elections and primaries That's a fine thing That's an absolutely fine thing Anything else you want to share or should we start picking up calls The board is filling up quickly I would be glad to take calls 'cause I know that you'll have a lot of good questions Okay Well let's do it Let's start with David in Columbus Ohio Hey David thanks for listening to me And you are on the air with Congress and Pokémon Hello congressman My big question is how do you cut the pen spending during periods of war I mean the tension just present are the big winners here And we need this money for domestic spending And we need to cut the use of fossil fuels Yeah David I'll tell you you bring up a very very good point because as you know Barbara Lee and I started a caucus with the intention of trying to cut The Pentagon's budget so much of it is wasted There's no audits that they ever have to adhere to like every other agency But I think one area that could work with us is with a simple language change You could more broadly use defense funds for things that actually stand up for the national security that aren't defense contractors And I would argue and I've asked this of Doctor Fauci of doctor jha of the head of the NIH They've all said COVID was a national security threat Well then why can't we use more Defense Department dollars to fight that national security threat and to have been reserved more of the supplies should we have another pandemic I would argue climate change is a national security threat I would argue cyberattacks are a national security threat So if we could just go after that definitional change we might be able to redirect some of those dollars that go towards things like F-35s that still have over 800 deficiencies and don't operate very well and instead put them towards a more modern definition of defense So David you're right It's hard given what's happening in Ukraine and other ways to actually cut the dollars outright But if we could find a way to really focus on a true defense a definition of national security I think then we could really see fewer dollars go towards weapons award and more dollars go towards actually defending this nation That is absolutely brilliant Do you think there's a good possibility of this happening We are trying very hard I mean I think there's 5 words arguably where the money can only go to a state and non state actor that if it were slightly changed we would have a broader ability But again as everything in Congress time there's a rule and then there's all the exceptions to the rule We fund breast cancer research right now with the Department of Defense dollars because there are female members of the military So but defense doesn't like to go outside their little realm and that little realm usually is defense contractor dollars I think especially with what we've just gone through COVID we can make a very strong case and I think that's where we should be putting our attention Very impressive Patty in Columbus Ohio you're on the air with congressman pocan Happy Friday gentlemen Hey back in Mike Thank you very much My question is how do we mean off the mystic when democracy hangs by a thread and there's not hardly any demonstrations against the right how do we remain optimistic with your question Okay Thank you patty I mean we have to right Whenever we see some of this really bad stuff happening remember this People agree with valleys of progressive And we have more people where they win is when they have big money come in and influence things where they get creative and convince people not to come out and vote But if we just keep doing the fight that we're doing people agree with us and our values So we just have to keep at it And when we see where they come at us with money like what happened on Tuesday we beat it back in different states in the polling places That was a very positive sign And it's just going to take us continuing to fight hard because many of the things we want to get done we're not quite able to do but we're going to get there It's just we got to keep fighting towards those goals People are with us Just remember that Steven and Albuquerque New Mexico You're on the earth congressman Pokémon Thank you gentlemen Say I'd like to ask what's your take is Mark on the Republicans affinity with Victor Orban in.

"I'm Emily Wilkins here with my fellow Bloomberg government reporter Jack Fitzpatrick we are filling in today for Joe Matthew Well in just a few minutes we're gonna speak with congressman Mark pocan but first we're gonna get a market update with Doug listener Hey Emily so we had a focal point I think on two primary areas One the inflation report for the month of November this is retail inflation as reflected by CPI a very hot reading an annual increase last month of 6.8% That's the highest since about 1982 Curiously it was in line with estimates right and so maybe in the equity market a sigh of relief that we did not have a number or a reading at any rate that exceeded forecast The second focal point with this rally that we had in information technology after the blowout results from Oracle and Broadcom and those gains in infotech led the S&P 500 to a record high 4712 we were up about 1% on the day where the Dow is concerned again of a 6 tenths of 1% We had the NASDAQ composite rising by about 7 tenths of 1% Now the other key risk for markets obviously the omicron variant Today British health officials said they expected to become the dominant varied by the middle of this month and a new study in the UK finds boosters give protection against oma cron in a range of 70 to 75% efficacy Here in the states the first Democrat cases were detected mostly in vaccinated people they experienced mild illness the CDC reporting only one hospitalization and no deaths so far So now as we wrap up this week our focus is on the fed meeting next week and whether or not today's CPI data will have a meaningful impact on the fed's thinking Chair Jay Powell is already said policymakers should consider withdrawing stimulus at a faster pace Today the ten year treasury was down a little more than a basis point and yield We were last quoted in New York at a yield of 1.48% I'm Doug prisoner and that is the Bloomberg business flash Thank you.

T. cards they can buy food yeah I don't know what is the package will be as far as the twelve hundred dollars I've not heard necessarily a re upping of that that's going to happen so many of us is digested monthly stipends to people that we want to do I'm not sure if that would be included or not I suppose that could be a way to do it but then someone still got a reprieve we have produced the cards in the mail the cards I don't know how different that would be increasing our mailing a check you know in in the electronic transfer still a fund should be the easiest but obviously not everyone has that as we found from the first twelve hundred dollars disbursement but I I don't know if the that would necessarily be bringing this up in any way but again I'm not sure if that's a part of this next package I think the next package time a largely be around local and state government assistance billing in the gaps for some people got left behind and then a lot more to prior to that that's what you could get it at first your package yeah I'm I'm concerned frankly that if we don't start getting money into the hands of people who are out of work or have been suspended from work who are you know not I I think the statistic was between a quarter and a third of America could make the rent payments this month the organization revolution here metaphorically yeah one of the big and I found is many of these Republican state Florida is a classic example have very antiquated systems for their unemployment insurance purposely because they want to make it hard for people to get unemployment right now with many people through no fault of their own need unemployment there now are fighting these failed or failing systems and I don't know how you address that in the in the short term but that is one of the real problems we're having right now what has our government simply direct cash to people out you know independent of the states why does it have to go through the states are you know or for that matter six I guess I'm afraid that's the unemployment money I'm just saying that's one of the big problem that's the six dollar bonus is that is that continuing into the in you know it was there a stopping point on that that has to be renewed that has for a month of time the PPP loans have eight weeks of time so I don't think they'll address something that's four months out in the next bill I'm not sure if they're dressing P. P. P. or not occur there is gonna be extension for applications but that doesn't matter the money run out is there gonna be an extension of money is my real question we don't have any of these answers yet because they have not been shared so Tom Burke unfortunately a little bit of a lost that's a pretty good reporting out there the public companies that have taken these PP loans have distributed over seven hundred million dollars to their shareholders in the last few weeks any chance of putting a restriction on that you can't.

S. Senate places like Iowa and Arizona and and I think it was North Carolina or about the other day I thought but you're right I mean the bottom line is that this all started in one place the president not dealing with this seriously we're all paying a tremendous price seventy thousand lives so far and the fact that he now wants to re open is is really continuing the the mass casualties that he has caused by his inaction or wrong actions on this and it is extremely disheartening Tom in Arcadia California here on the earth Carson okay hi congressman thank you Tom I'm cool because I'm learning says sorry and I haven't received my stimulus payment and I have a defaulted student loans and I'm concerned that it's going to be seized well I didn't here's what I would advise you actually is call you are either a member of Congress or Senate whatever you might have already a relationship with otherwise start a relationship with them and see what they can do one they can help you and that the stimulus my make money so you have to reach out to them for that and secondly you should also mention the student loves him because I understand it right now they're supposed to not be collecting and not having any additional interest bearing now I can't speak that's probably for federal loans in eight years as a private banking it's different situations but it still sounds like the case work that your member of Congress or US senator can help you with so I think you're just after reach out directly to them and and they will absolutely help you out this is what our jobs are to do yeah that's it's remarkable that up with by the way with twenty five seconds it's remarkable that these that there's so many people have not yet received these checks does that have anything to do with Donald Trump wanted to delay things so that he could send out a letter along with you know bragging about it it was yeah that was some of the delay trying to check again the letters out some of the delay was just you know not everyone when they pay taxes had a direct deposit some people didn't pay taxes so we had to figure out how to deal with that yes.

S. house of representatives and his website is poking and piercing a and a house that got me to treat him that much okay and be sure to tip of the hat thanks for coming out and doing these national town hall meetings and we'll be right your listening to Tom Hartman visit Tom Hardman dot com for audio and video archive middays in Markham your calls in a national title and welcome back Shannon and Ladera ranch California you're on the air with Congress and poking hi did both of you fabulous people supporting free speech and free real factor expropriating thank you for that I know time is precious my question is I watched five years Katie Porter yesterday get beat he had actually agreed to pay for all testing curry every person in America you're going to be tested of course you try to back and and as I heard okay congressman program okay and that the Republicans are making a mess of it so I know that there is a complaint and you guys are during your bath however I'm wondering about the loophole they're going to you're spending you might have your eight billion in funding that you already got going the problem is if they're going to send the spending only two people who can prove that they got it passed and it was by the devil or that their friendship or whatever made in quarantine how are they going to do that how are you going to be able to get to find out and will it take months to get payment for that anyway yes and I do think in this package they will have it so that anyone who needs a test the test and doesn't have to worry about having to pay out of pocket if that's the situation but I really do think that can be addressed he is a great question but honestly people been doing that all week in different areas that maybe didn't get the same attention Camilla I pulled a great job and making sure that someone whose who's here is that it did not a citizen right now could get access to we don't have an issue there we've been pushing the military in trying to get them to do their job that's basically all we're doing is members of Congress that all these hearings right now is getting people in the administration who won't answer questions weren't giving public very much information or quite honestly unfortunately sometimes misinformation getting to the truth in the bill today will be I think really important to support families it will provide economic stimulus to the country and hopefully it'll be that catalyst that fixed some what happened at the markets but really getting that flattened curve on people will get access to this so that we can not over that take the the capacity of the health care systems in this countryside if you're gonna have hopefully I'm a very hopeful today this will happen very strong built genet in spirit lake Idaho you're on the air conditioned poking thank you both but I listen to a Bernese address yesterday and you know obviously that's leadership we really need in a president right now but I'd like to see if you agree with me and if you do that you can pass along this message the burning needs to be as simple and straightforward in the debate as possible and to specifically say that his democratic socialism is STR democratic socialism you know because that is the remedy that this country will need especially if we take you know the economic downturn that's possible and also that he needs to specifically say that Medicare for all is not socialized medicine it's the Medicare we have now improved and expanded to everyone so that we do not need to tell us otherwise we're I we're gonna have a break and still I'm blessed with congressmen respond masking Carson yeah yeah I mean you know I I think it what I'm looking for the debate I mean it's gonna not format right there's.

"He gonna block anything that I think we'll be able to override that he originally bad and I think there is real work going on between them and the White House our leadership congressman mark Pocan taking your calls for the hour we'll be back in just a few just a moment our one hour free podcast recaps are showing it's available wherever fine podcasts are found and we have the full three hour podcast available over Tom Herman dot com if you want to really support our program it's Friday the thirteen second hour edition of mid days with mark congressman mark Pocan taking your calls for the hour Joe in Loxahatchee Florida I hope I'm pronouncing relax actually do I have the right job you're on your car's broken thank you for taking my call in great hands thank you for doing what you're doing on the new news today they announced that they're closing the voting poll some of the voting polls to protect the elderly against the corona virus what can you or we do to stop this voter suppression yeah actually joke that this is something because so much is appalling and I think I'm trying to be very patient as I look at very solutions I thought Louisiana is going to be actually moving their primary date I'm not sure this is a bad idea across the board I'm not sure it's a good idea yet but you know we can't have it where you have a bunch of senior citizens going out where there could be groups of people and in Wisconsin right now we have an April seventh primary were trying to get people to vote absentee but you also don't want to suppress people by by not having them come out because they're afraid because of what's going on so I am open to every conversation right now and I think we all need to be open to these conversations especially given that I think the next two weeks are going to be especially significant about what's happening with this virus I got a a press release from Ron Wyden yesterday saying that he's introducing legislation the Senate to provide the space of five hundred million dollars so that every state in the country can mail in absentee ballots to every single voter in their state between now and November for the November I realize this doesn't help with the primaries but for the November elections do you did you know about that might that happen in the house I I am not did not know about that but I can tell you our friend John Nichols from the nation wrote a significant piece on this recently like what are we doing for backup plans just in case and of course mail voting by mail would be one of the best options that you could do around that so I will look to see what they're doing in the Senate but I think everything has to be on the table right now yeah I think what we know is the next two weeks followed by the next two months are going to be the most important for the next several weeks especially important to try to get that peak to go down so that we don't overtake our ability to handle this in the hospitals and medical systems we assume that if we do that you'll spread it how many people will get that over the time over my time how many people are going to get this in summer peak months it'll go down significantly but people will still be getting it but we expect that spike back in fall so there's a lot of things that we're still learning and I think as around elections we have to have backup plans in place and I think that's a good suggestion is voting by mail Judy in hot springs village Arkansas you're on the air with congressman Pocan taking a call out and im my loan tax professional that works with Iran's grant program the volunteer income taxes thanks and we had a site shut down so we're kind of shut up there Maynard of the tax season and we're going to lose that Congress may extend the tax filing deadline have any information on them yeah that's one of the things being discussed I'm not sure for the party's package the state's packages trying to get support out there right now all of our people and then there's gonna be another economic all of this will have economic impact what we do today there may be another packages that deal with that but this is certainly one of the things being talked about Maryland in Madison Wisconsin you're on the air of congressman Pocan good afternoon gentlemen I am a mother of a soldier in Afghanistan and you discussed art of my concerns I I have three issues I'd like to ask you about I'm concerned from the numbers of code the disease in the military are being suppressed commanders in each the other don't have the accurate data with which to complete accurate force ready nothing course depletion assessment this is ultimately going to be a problem if there is widespread Kobe disease the second is our our military

"Of us because there are some valid arguments on each side congressman mark Pocan is with us for the hour well at least until ten minutes before the end of the hour taking your he's got a meeting he's got to go to bed taking your call zero tolerance for as many days with mark and he is the co chair of the congressional progressive caucus he represents the second district of Wisconsin the U. S. house of representatives his website is poking about has not got anything tweeting that rap mark how can this is the Tom Hartman program middays with large share of the Tom Herman program fair and only slightly unbalanced and welcome back bill and Sebastian Florida watch and free speech TV or on the earth Carson poking I said what bill I can't hear you I'd like to voice my opinion about the the coverage at MSNBC and do you have given not Bernie Sanders and I have not given M. a fair shake it all and it's a terribly disappointing and I'd like to know congressman inside investigation could be held until all the polling places that were closed in South Carolina and Texas which was recorded on C. span on the day after the Carolina primary thank you very much thanks bill yeah I'm I'm not familiar enough with that second part at give you a good answer bill and have college eyes on that front on the other I I mean it has been a pretty thorough coverage people describing Bernie Sanders's socialist yeah he's not a socialist and a the democratic socialists which really Tom in my opinion is kind of an outdated term it's really a social Democrat like you haven't got parking places like that and I think there's plenty of confusion around that but it has stopped many people who unfortunately have license to be on TV that the state things incorrectly and overly generally and that's been confusing I think yeah just the the fear factors you mention them people the making it sound like this is the only way to be Donald Trump when the last time I looked over the weekend fifty six the last sixty balls should Bernie Sanders beating Donald Trump it crossed the country but those things don't all get out in that it's been a big part of it think our problems those messages out that are actually help the fax right Tim in Los Angeles you are on the earth congressman Pocan I thank congressman could you tell me where I where I want to talk about was blue once again the corporate media yeah has turn the picture around people are gullible people rely on on that media is there anything in the works to bring us back to where news he said he is not to make a profit is there any bills like that winter that you guys are working on yes I am actually quite the opposite we're up in defending public radio public TV's and other one of the few entities that we have left is is actually every year I think president yeah provide cuts due and we generally restore from Congress so it kind of the opposite yeah to me I think a bigger part of the problem Tim is the twenty four seven news cycle so often and frustrating to them in Washington and and they get the information is actually happening and I see how it's reported and people want to get it fast rather than right and I'm a journalism major and I have a problem with that but that is the part of what we're battling and then when it gets fixed it doesn't get the same coverages when it first gets reported so that there's a number of things that you know would be helpful I think help on that front but I think yeah we just have to make sure that is he communicate with folks whether P. sociale Medier otherwise we're at least putting some of the facts out for all to know what's happening further beyond legislation or politics but there is no big movement or even a small movement to for example restore the fairness doctrine or undo the ninety six telecommunications really.
