"In America's leadership on climate change that will strengthen our security and create millions of new jobs in the process that will start with a federal cap and trade system. Spring. 2009 early in President Obama's first term hopes for the country's first national climate plan rested on the Waxman Markey bill proposed a cap and trade program. Would place a limit on greenhouse gas emissions while creating a market for companies to buy and sell permission to pollute. John McCain and Barack Obama both supported cap and trade, as did many of America's biggest industrial companies. But that window of opportunity didn't last. The idea of placing regulation on industry and costs on consumers in a country recovering from recession generated fierce opposition and the bill didn't make it past the house. The so called climate change bill is dead in the water in the Senate Republicans still favored cap and trade because it was market base and essentially created a new commodity to trade. In California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was advancing a cap and trade program that was seen as a possible model.

Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 10

"Okay. This next receiver is a guy that you and i are. differ a lot on and with twenty fifth pick of the second round. The la rams selected to at well from louisville. Receive our end. I get their concerns. Ideal disguise five nine hundred fifty five hundred sixty pounds. People are questioning whether he's gonna be physical enough in the nfl. however this is a player. The i compare to markey's brown. I think that in order to be successful. He's going to have to gain a little bit more weight. But i think that to out will be able to develop especially with the la rams who don't need in the -sarily to be great outta the gecko. But i think that the upside for two atwal is especially there especially if he's going to have the matthew stafford throwing the ball and so it was back to murky brown when he was in college him and he had similar stats. Which is why. I'm bringing up the comparison the first place in his junior. He had seventy five receptions for one thousand three hundred eighteen yards in ten touchdowns. Now let me bring up to two atwal stats from his sophomore season. And they were very similar which end so to atwell in his sophomore year he had sixty nine sevens for one thousand two hundred seventy two yards and eleven receiving touchdowns and so these two guys. Besides the fact marquees brown ways a little bit more to travel or comparable. And if you're an you're seeing now to to out while falling to the fourth maybe even fifth out of your dynasty da and for me. I think that's a little bit ridiculous. Because for a guy that had a similar career to marquees brat and his cod season and similar upset that he should be considered a third round prospect for you and your dynasty rookie draft. And i'd say right now. Marcus brand is probably a second round. Pick but i think he could be worth a second or the round pick and this guy. Who's extremely fast as well. I think he's going to create separations and he's not just the speedster. He's not just the speedster he he gets receptionist as well on anyone who puts up almost thirteen hundred receiving yards in college. Season is a guy that is a good all amount of receiver as well. So don't just think of him as a speedster guy gonna occasionally break open deep here and there so yeah. I'm a big fan of to at wall of the i know Oh and one one last thing. He was picked in the second round so clearly. The rams do have a plan for two while. They're not just investing a second round pick in a receiver that they don't see being a great receiver in the long term and this by the way was the rams first pick all draft. If i'm correct so they might have even viewed him as a late first round pick. We don't know. But the fact that they spent their first round pick onto to By having good receivers shows you how much demands believe into Anyways kyle the floor is yours as to why you don't believe in to atwell. Well it says so much that i don't believe in two two at well. It's the fact. That so i am from louisville in. I watched a lot of this kid. He is a very good receiver. I agree with you. He's not just a burner. he is a good polish receiver and a lot of facets of football but my biggest problem is literally is just. This is and the fact that he's completely buried on the depth chart. I don't see any Any possibility of him getting in and becoming a number one receiver on that team like anytime. Soon robert woods. Anne cooper kupp. Both resigned extensions For last year So you already got those positions locked up now. You lose josh rhinos. But they already spent high draft capital on jefferson. Dan jefferson last year. So that position was already and then they spent another was a third or early fourth round. Pick onto harris harris could be used as a tight end. I think a lot of people saying he's going to be a tight end he he. They say he's listed as a tight end but he also weighs about twenty so if anything he's going to be like a a move titan. I don't see him being like inland blocker. But you already have tyler higby as well. You know it's just it's just a really crowded And you also have to sean jackson that they stopped they brought in you know so i. I'm just not sold that there's any opportunity for at least in the first year to now you like you said maybe a if you invest in this guy at the late third fourth round Me personally i'd rather just take dark throws on running backs. At this point you know even a third. The guys are projected to be thirds shrink or shrink. You know a rash of injuries and all of a sudden guys are going to get plight. Be starters and they're going to be valuable. You can train them. You know it would take a stream lee amount of circumstances for for you to for him to get on the plainfield him to productive enough for another team to to trade for him. It's just wide receivers just a position that you know if you don't put up stats people don't really wanna trade for him at all. I mean it's as simple as that you know and i know he has draft capital That's about the only thing. I think he has known. Form at one hundred fifty five pounds. I just don't know if it's worth the headache you know. But then again it only takes one person to trade and if you're only drafting him with the mindset of trading him than you're probably not gonna draft to tell to till In the first place. And if i don't know if it necessarily applies to atwells value the fact that the community hates him. Because there's going to be at least one guy and if you put up the stats. People are going to be willing to trade for him. So i i get that point but at the same time. I don't know if that necessarily applies to At wellness fair. Knock about the onto to at atwill. Because it's not actually something that to two at walt dead. It's more of the perception that people have about two. But it's it's what he didn't do. He didn't gain the weight which i think he will in the way he's still what in nineteen twenty years old. I think he's still

In politico, she said. Trump let us down. He went down a path we shouldn't have, and we shouldn't have followed him. That's a decisive break Donald Trump from somebody who was considered quite close to Donald Trump. That is significant, but it doesn't mean he will be in peach or convicted.

10,000 stores expected to close this year due to COVID-19

"Major retailers, the report says, are expected to close 10,000 stores this year that is up 14% from the year just ended. But at the same time more than 3300 new stores open last year, and course I predicts another 4000 will open this year. Marketplaces Kimberly Adams has that one. The types of stores that shut down in the pandemic include lots of footwear, clothing and accessory shops. According to course, I research the types of retail that opened discount outlets like Dollar stores. Industries that cater to certain pandemic needs also did all right. I believe the housewares category as all overall in the country has seen tremendous growth from New York to the West Coast. Natasha aim it runs the kitchen supply store Whisk in New York. Her business did better than she expected in 2020. Now as restrictions start to lift.

No, social media isn't biased against conservatives

No, social media isn't biased against conservatives

"Yesterday the CEO's of Google facebook and twitter testify before the Senate and a hearing that was supposed to be about a fundamentally important Internet law called section two thirty. It's about liability protection for tech companies. Instead, the hearing ended up being about how much power big tech companies hold and how they wheeled it. Republicans accused social media platforms of Anti Conservative bias Democrats said, platforms aren't doing enough to curb the spread of disinformation. It went about like this Mr Gordon. Who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear issue is not that the company's before today are taking too many posts. Now issue is that the leaving too many dangerous post up. That was senators, Ted Cruz, and Ed. Markey and we now have none other than marketplace tax molly would here to talk about this and I asked her. Is it true that tech platforms have an anti conservative bias? There is no evidence to show that platforms have an anti conservative bias, and in fact, there is research as of this very week that says that facebook actually. Promotes right wing content to the point that it is its own sort of right wing echo chamber, and in fact, Kevin Roose at the new. York Times set up basically an automated system that every single day posts the top performing links on US facebook pages in the last twenty, four hours and every single day. The vast majority in fact are from right wing new sources. It does though stem from argument that I've heard not just from the right. But also from the left that these companies do wield a lot of power, they can take whatever they want down and that people want to know why you know when it happens that they should be more transparent with their their moderation policies and processes. How much common ground is there on that I mean, that is absolutely true. These companies should be more transparent about how their processes work and unfortunately because they have not been over and over and over it's basically open the door to the kind of frankly posturing and performance that you see every time these two use appear before Congress and it's only gotten worse I think that that would be. In some ways, a fairly easy fix. These are our rules they are enforced consistently and with regularity, and that would end a lot of these arguments but unfortunately, the platform so far have not done that now in the actual last days before a presidential election, they're kind of scrambling in front of all of us real time to figure out solutions and it's obviously not working. No one's happy with it. One of the other issues we heard about brought up mostly by Democrats was about disinformation specifically about how much responsibility tech platforms have to take it down. What did we learn once again, we didn't learn much from. All of the shouting but I think what we're learning is that increasingly this conversation which a lot of people believe is about section two thirty and this liability shield of the tech platforms have related to what their users post is not actually what this is about. It's about disinformation and so far we've seen proposals from the GOP to alter the way that section two thirty works that would arguably punish platforms for not allowing disinformation to spread. and. Then on the other side of the equation, you have certainly Democrats but also researchers, academics, journalists saying these companies have allowed disinformation to spread to a dangerous degree and they need to do more to stop it on both the advertising side and the content side. Here's the thing that is a little bit tricky to discuss a lot of the time when conservatives in Congress say that conservative content is being censored. The content that they're referring to is disinformation. They give you know frequently the example of the commentators diamond silk who have had their content taken down because it promoted misinformation around the corona virus as one example, and so we find ourselves in this tricky position where increasingly there are there people in the GOP who are embracing? Cunanan, in back just this week, Stephen Miller the White House political adviser reportedly told journalists that Abidin administration would enable widespread sex trafficking of children that is a Q. and non talking point is conspiracy theory that has spread on the Internet and so because we're in this moment where we're right before the election where disinformation has played a huge role in the two thousand sixteen election and in elections since it is really impossible to separate the politics. From the conversation around speech particularly when so many of these talking points are impact themselves misinformation or did. Researchers. Just re re released evidence that president trump himself is the single largest source of misinformation around covid nineteen in the coronavirus, and that makes us a tricky conversation to have because it feels partisan. But if you agree that truth is truth and certain things are true in certain things aren't then it is sort of a nation that has to be had.

It's And again, the the the fact that anybody turns into a new story is, what is what encourages? The campaigns to keep doing this because they know they can get a couple of days mileage minimum out of this kind of stuff journalists will bite on this. Now they love twitter news stories they love being able to delve into all this stuff. So Kennedy should he runs us like this underdog okay and and it's so pathetic.

"markey" Discussed on Useful Idiots with Matt Taibbi and Katie Halper

"Hello and welcome to useless idiots. I'm one of your to co hosts Katie Helper. And on the other of the to us. When it was done. Taping. Yeah. Welcome. How are you? I'm a horrid lots of stuff going on the world I might watch. I can't do it Agai we'll I'll be able to update you on the best parts of it. It's really intense. Yeah. GonNa. Watch. We're GONNA. We are going to watch together finale ramp. Butts the I I couldn't after the DNC last week guide ahead my your fell fail. When you hear this, we will have already watched the finales and been great, right? Yes. Right word we're in this words facetime. Right now. Lots of other stuff going on a mass protests everywhere of Jacob. Lake shooting a bit of a confusing story they're seeing today all sorts of conflicting reports about what actually happened in. But obviously horrible and paralyze he's paralyzed, which is you know Who would have thought getting shot seven times in the back? Paralyzed some of them I guess the miracle is that he's alive but yeah, why right? At times in the back. In the annals of closeness misconduct shootings. It's not a terribly I number seven. But when you're that close, there've been incidents where there are fifty shots forty four shots, right? But aren't they usually far? I mean again are I think. Not necessarily that close we've got a Durban incidents for of finished firing and reloaded. when the within the distance of they could be touching the person being in like a hallway yeah. I mean I'm not I'm not. You know it's not like a competition I, do think it's different when you're literally and I'm not saying like the other ones in the hallway were. Okay. But there's something different about it when you're like. Right behind them, right you know what I mean. So before from groups Democrats. Republicans like it's weird. Isn't that terrible? There was a lot choose from. For Democrats talk this week at I just went for something that I thought was. It's getting to the point where it's so certain that. We gotta talk about this before it becomes an all out trend. Dan is not this would be have our are a different producer redone lead today read. Can we take a look at the story call a marquee pros? So here's here's the story in in the Boston Globe. This is does the Senate race between? Ed Markey and Joe Kennedy Basically. This is a a an exact repeat of the burn grow accusation. Except it's coming from Kennedy, this time at Marquee, Kennedy's people are. Demanding that Mark Marquee quote publicly and clearly denounce the hateful conduct and speed and speech of Marquee supporters. What can I say someone who's a marquee supporter? I would like to tell Joe Kennedy and his campaign to go fuck themselves. Yeah you can do that there I said it. Index story which is Kept him to cry what it says are markets toxic dangerous online orders fucking hate this they can't I'm trying not to be toxic. Basically what the Kennedy Campaign says is. We know that none of this is coming none of the online. A abuse and some of it apparently had to do with jokes about dead Kennedys mean come on there's A. Band called debt ran let gets. Death threat they're considering death row earlier there were some they're claiming that there are some threats a. Mixed in there but they're seeing up front that none of us was actually coming from the Marquis campaign but it's a result of the quote toxic online ecosystem that he fomented I mean I thought this was worth mentioning because this is this is now officially thing where. To get at or or to change the subject in a campaign. between people who can't disagree over substantive issues assist a talk about somebody saying something mean on twitter even if it doesn't nothing to do with the candidate. And journalists are very complicitous because. You know if you report the story at face value. Right you're you're kind of creating Goule around the candidate. Who supposedly has the toxic Bob It's it's completely a matter of characterization if you look at the reports about Sanders. Years it was about his toxic online following but that if you look at the Kyiv Stories. One after another talks about outgrew what a brilliant. Strategic engagement policy. She hasn't Blah Blah rank. and. It's it's just infuriating as he said, we saw this with the Bernie thing. and. As you said, it's when you can't critique the person on substance. So you have to make it about these like weird twitter only disputes and again it's totally selective like I'm a bit obsessed with this. I documented a lot of cases of this nobody says anything when it's done by supporters of the person you're supporting right to enroll. One says anything by have no one said anything about. Hillary Clinton supporter in twenty sixteen, they were to physical attacks based on the primary in two, thousand, sixteen, both committed by. Men Against by Hillary Man Against Sanders women and nobody cares about sexism and toxically somehow nobody talked about either one of those. So it's a totally disingenuous Mir occasionally. regurgitated by good faith people who don't know that they're just parodying talking points. And again, if you WanNa if you think and we are in a pandemic and you somehow think that this is the most important thing people being mean on twitter. But if you WANNA, make that your issue fine but you need to be condemning it no matter where it happens but I just want to give really quickly. An example of the toxic behavior that that the Kennedy Campaign alleged to have to deal with. Okay. So this is like the nerdy thing just reading at the show at Boston magazine there is an event It was a a star studded Broadway fundraiser that was going to happen for Joe Kennedy was going to be a zoom thing but it was shutdown okay. Because of toxic, it's six apparently according to the Kennedy Campaign Against the people who are participating in it right and here here are just some of the toxic. The Marquee Bros. Okay and everyone if your kids around and cover their ears, lock your doors all that stuff. So here's one of them ready. And these are from the supporters I guess who are writing to the performers in the star star studded. event. Hi Andrew Feldman I saw that you are participating Broadway for Joe Kennedy and I wanted to make sure you knew that the person that Kennedy is running against is actually the author of the green new deal and has been fighting for us for decades I'm happy to talk more in DM's. Okay. That's an example of toxicity. Here's another one writing. This is Harvey Fierstein another performer. Do you realize that Ed Markey supported gay and Lesbian Employment Nondiscrimination legislation in the in Massachusetts State. House in the late seventies seriously hoping that this is just an errand judgment because Ed has always been a progressive champion not just when it's fashionable, it gets worse can't really shake my disappointment about this harvey firestone I'm a huge fan. I'm so grateful for your work but lending your. Star power to help Kennedy Kennedy on seat..

"Our families right now as essential workers, and that's pay child care up k sick-leave income guarantees for everyone so that they have enough resources to take care of their families. The same way they're taking care of families right now and and I'm really convinced it in a good political way what we've all seen over these last six months in terms of who is most affected is going to make it more possible that we can then pass the legislation. which we have to. Next year. So two more questions senator and then I appreciate your time one has to do with immigration. You mentioned immigration I guess the way I wanNA frame. This question because I've seen the debates. Let me ask you this. Do you think the Democratic Party has addressed its legacy of sort of being the party of Barack and Puerto Chief House, the immigration debate change in your mind over the last seven eight, ten, twenty years I mean. We're still kind of saving this debate. It feels like some you know Democrats might be a little bit at fault in this debate as well. What what are your thoughts? Yeah. Yeah, I think that's a great question. I think that. I think that. Party has moved to a consensus that we need a pathway to immigration for all eleven million. Immigrants in the country and I think pathway to citizenship right? Yeah I think the pathway to citizenship I think that. I think the DACA debate opened people's eyes to the eight hundred thousand young people who are here in should not be sent back and then the TPS debate did the same thing that TPS debate focused again on a large community that clearly should not be sent back whether it be to Salvador or to Haiti, you name it they should not be sent back and and so the the longer it has gone on the more educated our country has become a to WHO. All of these communities are and I think there's a solid I mean one hundred percent now up vein lancs of Democrats who do support creating a clear pathway to citizenship for everyone. In an I think honestly I think there has been a number of Republicans that want to do. The same thing trump has chunk has terrified them by trying to make America great again by making America hate again and demonizing Muslims and Mexicans and immigrants and women of color. But I do believe I got my fingers crossed saying this but I do believe that next year there really is going to be an opportunity to legislate on comprehensive immigration reform and I think there will be a lot not A. Lot But enough Republicans that will come together with us, and if they don't, we have to change the filibuster all. So we have to do it would just a majority and not with sixty votes then fine we'll just change the rules. So my last question because I read politico I saw your ad I have a twenty year old who is back from George Washington who is politically engaged in his now you know working online where did you suddenly become so young and hip and cool where did that happen? I needed to ask you this question because my daughter wanted me to ask you this question. Okay. What is your daughter's name? My daughter's name His grace is grace. So grace. When you look at that at, it's three minutes long. And early on in the add. One Point Oh ed markey comes on and one point zero Ed Martin. Is Running for Congress, and he's had his desk thrown out in the hall. And but his bill has passed to overhaul the judicial system in Massachusetts but the bill is passed and what I do is I fold my and I say the bosses can tell me where to set nobody tells you where to stand. While the thing is grace. and. I would say you Gracia father is the same way on the outside. You don't quite look the same that you did in the one point addition of your father me. But inside inside grace with the same people it's true and so what I'm doing now is just what that younger version of myself always was doing. And it's taken this race against Congressman Kennedy for me to tell my story about the fights that have been fighting on climate change with Ao. See You for A. Protections for every family in this opioid crisis or an immigration bill that's comprehensive and so ultimately grace I guess what? I would say. Is, that That you. Really. Are the person you are and in. So this has just given me an opportunity to tell that story to people and it turns out. That, young people rallied to my side because they can see that it's not your age. It's the age of your ideas that are important in this race on the youngest guy in the race and kids have figured it out Senator Markey. First of all thank you for shouting out my daughter's name. You you just you just add. Can I say I, just earned major dad points because that's going to be good but I, appreciate your time. You. Can Ask you dad don't you agree that? The same guy in a lot of I'm the same guy I mean you know you add some you had a couple of pounds in you know there's a little thinning hair but yeah, I'm still the this I'm the still the same twenty year old kid who came. To school up here in his State and his loves match Massachusetts and is a national reporter but you know I'm a Massachusetts kid I'm a transplant now right from Puerto Rico. New York. But this is home. So I get it. So yes. So I'm GONNA so but I'm glad you shouted out and I'm glad that you took the time from your scheduled to talk to us a Latino radio because like we said we are we serve Massachusetts and the nation with a growing community and and just having you on. It means a lot to US journalists because we don't have these opportunities. So thank you again, center Marquis for being on. Thank you. My honor. Really thank you I wanNA. Thank Senator Markey again for taking the time to talk to us I'm just going to be honest with you. We don't talk to US senators. So when when US senator say, yes we we say yes so we. Appreciate his time. We appreciate the fact that he gave us the time that he gave as a dad. I was a little bit taken aback by the fact that showed up my daughter and you know it happens I had other questions to ask him but I couldn't get to him. I thought it was important just to get him to explain some of his positions to our audience. To, inform voters, you guys get to decide in Massachusetts whatever you want and like I said, we're going to try to get Congressman Kennedy sometime later this week if we can make it, happen I really wish they had just gotten back to us. When we ask because this podcast would have had both the candidates with equal time but such is campaign politics but again, WanNa thank senator. Markey for being on guys if you liked what you heard rate and review us and we'll be back sometime later this week if it's not with Congressman Kennedy we have. Other shows that we're going to be dropping and like we always do close out our show, we close out with a minutes does. Julia Galleria. Latino rebels radio..

"We are in the middle of an election season in the middle of this pandemic and as you know or you might not know. I am based in Massachusetts I've been living in Massachusetts. Since I came to school up here it's kind of been. Home Base for me it's home to me, right so. I've been fascinated by this democratic Senate race that is happening in. Massachusetts in the middle of global pandemic between the incumbent Senator Edward Markey and the Challenger. Robert Senator Joseph Kennedy I've seen this race sort of gained national attention. You know it's one of those races where you. You Go. Why are Democrats running against each other high profile Democrats wearing against each other During the time of you know twenty twenty election and one of the things that has fascinated me about the races. Sort of how Ed Markey who has been congressman for a Lotta years then became senator of Massachusetts, a couple of years ago. How we are at least here, we are seeing more about him because it is a challenge, right you have. A name like Joe Kennedy running against you know the Kennedy name up here. So anyway, I I, it's been a really contentious race and. I've been following it because I because of the whole. Progressive Democrat. Tension I think. WHO's a progressive? Who's not you know? Nancy Pelosi endorsing, EOS endorsing Marquee Nancy. Pelosi. Endorsing Kennedy. It's just kind of a microcosm of the tension of I think within the Democratic Party and also how Ed Markey has. Sort of redefined himself. So anyway, I had an opportunity to connect with Ed Markey a couple of days ago senator. Markey. I also contacted the Kennedy Campaign, a couple of times. They never got back to me. And but Senator Markey did. So we talked. With the disclosure like I said that I I offered time to the Kennedy. Campaign. They never got back to me and in fact. The only time they got back to me is after. We tweeted about the fact that we had just recorded with Senator Markey. So anyway, we might have congressman. Kennedy. Soon. Later this week before the September one primary to offer equal time we might not I don't know if the schedules will workout. But in the meantime, here's a conversation that I had with Senator Ed Markey who is running in. Senate race Senator Ed Markey thank you so much for being on Latino rebels radio. Well, thanks for having me on polio. This is a great honor for me. You know can I just tell you this story before we start I actually met you very briefly at the Kelly's roast beef and you're actually they're ordering Kelly's roast beef in your congressman at the time and I said Hello I just that was just the first time I met you so so so here we are getting your on my show. You're in the middle of a contested race at I never thought that this this primary has become sort of a national story senator and I wanted to talk to you about. I. Think. A community that gets ignored a lot in in Massachusetts is the Latino community. And can you talk to me about your history with the Latino community I in Massachusetts and I don't think a lot of people know this. But I've I've talked to a lot of your supporters who are Latino elected officials who have told me about some of your roots can you just start with that? Yeah. Well, thank you for. The question and I actually eight, some stuff from Kelly's roast beefs afternoon. So you so you you know you you're on to me I love it. I love it. Yeah. Yeah. I I have confirmed that you are a fan of Kelly's. Are Continuing the tradition. So that's funny. Continue Center. So well, thank you. Well, you know I can begin with the work done for. Puerto Rico. In the wake of the of the of the hurricanes earthquakes that continues to ravage the island I worked very hard. To make sure that the trump administration is made accountable I actually flew down to Puerto Rico with Elizabeth Warren to play an oversight role in ensuring that that they knew that destroying paper towels at the citizens of Puerto Rico was not going to be acceptable. So I I did that and then I had multiple summits. With the Puerto Rican community, in Massachusetts, so I could hear their concerns and continued to reflect that in my oversight responsibility has been, and by the way those meetings took place in Boston those meetings took place in Springfield, those meetings took place in holyoke. Those meetings to place in Worcester. So I try to listen to the concerns and in addition I will say that listening to concerns I voted against promise the I know that I can I tell you one thing about that part. So you know I I am a Puerto Rican journalist I I'm I'm in Massachusetts I've been in Massachusetts since the nineties when you said that I think a lot of people miss that point in the debate that you said that because Pro Mesa? Is Not a popular legislation in Puerto. Rico. But also in the Puerto Rican community in Massachusetts and I do want to talk about other communities in Massachusetts outside of the Puerto Rican community but but let's stick on Pro Mesa why did you not vote for promise? You went against your party I mean it was it was a bipartisan legislation President, Obama, signed it. But why did you? Why did you feel that you were against promise of back then and and then talk about how that has changed you know it seems like you're right. I think history has made it very clear that that was the correct boat and by the way. My opponents casts the the opposite vote on that. Issue my feeling was that that we had to absolutely anticipate that it could lead to a hollowing out of educational services, a public safety services services in general who we know now the University of. Puerto Rico is in trouble because of that vote and so I, listened to those who came in and lobbied me on the issue on both sides. And it was there was a divided view on it, but I came to the very clear conclusion that. Big Mistake. To vote for progressives. So I voted no and I think history has worn out especially post. cameras, and the hurricanes that there is an absolute crisis going on in of Puerto Rico. Even as this belt tightening from this something essential control board continues to ham auditory citizens. So I feel very good about that though I think my no vote. has been vindicated historically. So talking about Puerto. Ricans and you you Kinda hang with a famous Puerto Rican now in DC and I want to talk about climate change a little bit because I think that's another topic at least with the Massachusetts Latino community that people don't think that Latinos Massachusetts care about climate change before I talk about what your constituents are saying about the constituents can you tell me your connection with Alexandra Cossio Cortez because you know she is a superstar in the Puerto Rican community. What do you see that you see in you? It seems like you've been reenergize a little bit like. In this campaign because of. Well. She wanted twenty eighteen in a big upset..

"Doesn't that play into the overall charge that you are running as a Kennedy and feel entitled to a Senate? Seat as a result no might. So the not at all in the I am. So take the politics out of literally from anything I've ever done that has been the accusation right? Whatever job ever had whatever school ever got undo whatever comes over how it's 'cause you're causing feminine. That's like that's fine. I'm accustomed to that I got the same question in my first race for for Congress I think that if you ask my constituents, I, Wanna I had a primary challenge, my last race, I one, ninety, five to five I. think that if you ask my constituents across the fourth district would say that I was focused on their needs and concerns. And had done a good job of representing and so part of this way I've tried to approach my my public services to understand that that. that. Frame Critique into go out there and prove it in earn your way through because that's ultimately that's the only thing you can do. That said Congress think you said that you had no clue. Your Dad was pumping all this money into the super. PAC, which you know some people upset does not sound credible. Did you really not know this and have you not discuss that you'd some to the Super Pac with your father so my literally until you just said it, my father has I know my dad had about somewhere under three million dollars in old campaign account. I have no idea. If or how much of that has been diverted to a super PAC the SUPERPAC disclosures that I am aware of have the funding there from labor unions because of the timing on those disclosures. So I don't know but my point on this Mike Right and let's be very clear about this. I tried for months months to keep super pacs out of this race months. I offered the same s senator market to sign the same pledge that he put forward when he was running in two thousand thirteen and he ran on people's pledge the same place at Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown signed for their salaries. He ran on it when he ran ran first rates for. I asked him to sign the same thing so that we didn't have to get into super PACs because I don't want super PACs in this race. He said no repeated for months. There were other challenges in this race at that time myself and one of the other challenges signed that people's pledge he wouldn't, and so I I have a pretty hard time accepting some sort of criticism from the senator who was asked to stick by his word and the same pledge that he ran on back in twenty, thirteen, two, thousand, fourteen that he somehow walked away from and is now blaming me because he walked away from the same place that was good enough for him before the only reason. Why Super Pacs are industries is because Senator Mark You wouldn stay consistent congressman has mental ton of polling in this race. So it's a little bit hard to get a clear read on how you're doing with particular constituencies but Ed Markey seems to lately have gotten hot among young voters. There's the green new deal maker ad went viral memes about his Nike sneakers and there are polls that show him leading you by wide margins particularly among voters under thirty. How is it that this boomer who's more than thirty years older than you seems to be winning the kids and the Internet so that's a great question. So the first part sprite, which is I think the inconsistency in the and. Pollster at sent me Disa- quick look at two public polls one of which had senator mark up fifty points amongst young people and then another poll. Five days later that at. Eleven. A sixty one point swing and four days nothing happened in for it. I mean stuff happened. But nothing to perpetuate a sixty point swing amongst a critic selector, right so. I would just say I to the kind of the first part of your question I don't trust. Any good pollster in this race and I think this has been reflected in the media coverage would say, no one really knows what's going on and there's it's kind of a wild ride there because you've seen Kohl's that have him had a very close race. There's been some that have him up. There's been some me up. There's been some both by fairly wide margin that's because. No one knows what a universes and so how you wait who showing up and. That comes down to assumptions which might be reasonable but nobody knows and so I I wouldn't put a whole lot of stock in those holes but you're going. Yet neither went viral. He's obviously some of his he's been able to tap into. This fervor from a progressive left I think it is part of that is a bit puzzling to me because I don't think that the policy positions that the progressive left. Claims to support a reflective of center. Markey's records then watches record on a number of the critical issues over the course of the past thirty or forty years is. Very much with Vice President Biden if not even further to the right than Vice President Biden particularly comes to immigration and even racial justice. That being said. The progressive left is holding Joe Biden's feats the fire. And demanding that he moved leftward but is giving senator market complete and total pass, and that's the part that I do has been a bit mystifying to me because under normal circumstances, you know center market voted for the Iraq war center market voted present. When asked whether we should send troops into Syria the only member of the Senate to vote present. Senate Marquis was the only member of the Massachusetts delegation. The only Democrat had only Democrats to vote with Republican Party immigration extremists to try to maximize number of immigrant detention beds back in two thousand thirteen when the Obama Administration is trying to cut them the Democratic Caucus, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and everybody else in Massachusetts one way. Or the other he was in the midst of another Senate race time. The fact that he again voted to try to ban interracial relationships on campus was against the desegregation of the Boston public schools. These are issues that at the very least. Right. The Progressive Left has have. dived. Into with regards to Joe Biden's issues and give Ed markey complete past the senator claims that have written five, hundred eighty bills as we talked about the debate last night he's claiming co-sponsorship literally just into a bill if it passes under that definition guys I wrote the green new deal. Right, like. That's not a claim I would make, but it's a claim he's. Fair. He's not just a co-sponsor of the green new deal. Made He. Agreed. But he's claiming that he co wrote he's claiming credit for five hundred eighty bills that passed and if you look at the bills that he's claimed credit for he's claiming credit for bills he cosponsored that's the issue. Right? He's claiming credit. He wrote the deal congressman accustomed protests I'm not debating. I was an original cosponsor on day one. I would not claim that I wrote the bill. But he is claiming a similar consistent position would enable me claim that I wrote it Congressmens do on I give you a chance to talk about the case of these two Fathers Dan Henry and Colin Bouwer. You alluded to briefly before both of whom had tragedies involving their kids and went to see senator. Markey in Washington to get his help tell us what that episode tells us about the difference between you and and Edmonds. So then this is when I say that there's more to this job in the votes cast in the bills bills file this is Dan Angela Henry. Approached me back in twenty fourteen after their son Dj was was. A college student was murdered by White, police, officer in horrible circumstances outside his college in Westchester County New York and I worked with them to push a Justice Department in Washington. New York. To try to file charges family had to pay for all the investigation out of pocket because the DA local DA declined to press charges a a in the shooting. One police officers fired another police officer at the COP that killed Dj their son and testify under oath conflict killed DJ was initial aggressor in the incident, right? Is horrible circumstances he is you can find. Local authorities did nothing we pushed on a on the Department of Justice and we weren't successful. I've still got to touch the family I show up at charity benefits they have for on their son pushing authorities in New York and Washington. Now, they met with Senator Markey shortly after they met with me and the met over launched there felt like they were dismissed insulted he refers to a black people during the meeting colored and he never got up the only thing he ever did afterwards was on sort of astonishing i. mean who says that word anymore? I mean he's a progressive liberal I mean was that racist for him to say that?.

"Because people have gotta know whether or not their president's across. Well I'm not a crop fly told the American people I did not trade arms for hospital, my heart, and my best intentions still tell me that's true. But the facts and the evidence tell me it is not I did not have sexual relations with that one there will be no lies we will honor the American people with the truth and nothing else. Michael ISIKOFF chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo News, and I'm Dan Kleinman editor and chief of Yahoo News. There is one Senate race that is getting a lot of attention right now the battle Royale in Massachusetts where veteran Democratic Senator Ed Markey is facing a primary challenge from Joe Kennedy the third. Yes. A Kennedy grandson of Robert. Kennedy grand nephew of former president, John F., Kennedy, and It is a become quite the battle, a neck and neck attack ads. Running on both sides, which is a little surprising given. These are both staunch Liberal Democrats but it's quite a race. It's been a long time since we've been able to cover a Kennedy race. So kind of kind of fun and What's interesting about it so far is Ed Markey has been willing to go right at the sacred cow he's actually. Going after the Kennedys, the Kennedy name forced Joe Kennedy to. Hold a press conference defending his family's name and legacy. So that makes it pretty interesting and we've got the aforementioned Joe Kennedy. The third on the show today. So let's get right to it. We are now joined by congressman, Joe Kennedy. The third who has represented the fourth Congressional district in Massachusetts since two thousand and thirteen and is challenging in a hotly contested primary Senator Edward Markey who has been in Congress for more than forty years. Congressman Kennedy Welcome to the skulduggery. Okay. So you Senator Markey are both Progressive Democrats there's not a lot of daylight between you on policy issues. So for our listeners who have not been following this race closely, what are the most important differences between you and Senator Markey, and what's the rationale for your candidacy? So thanks thanks for having. So a couple things here literally, the biggest difference between between the two of us is how we define the job and senator Markey has said essentially that the biggest that the central responsibility of a legislator is of a center. is to about the votes that you cast in the bills file and yes of course, that's important. But there's so much more to the job than just the votes cast inability to file. I wholeheartedly disagree with that limited vision of the role of the United States senator until here's how the job one particularly. Now when you gotta be here, you got to be in our communities, our streets listening to people that are on the frontlines of covert spots that have faced economic station because of our government's unpreparedness for for this pandemic, because of the inequities of our in our economy and our health care system and to fight for them every single day and the fact is senator mark doesn't live here he lives in Washington he spent less time here than Elizabeth. Warren. Did when she was running for Pres- and spent far less time here than any other member of the delegation. Second you gotta be in DC, fighting for us, and that's where cinemark said he needs to be. Great. But between the time to Covid, really hit our in Massachusetts till through the August. Recess the senator missed over fifty percent of the votes in Washington DC now that was a time when we were drafting response to a pandemic and trying to save our economy he actually was. Third. If you're not Washington and you're not in. Massachusetts. Than going out, take this race to the take your case to the frontlines and the changes we need to. We can hold this administration accountable particularly in two thousand, Eighteen Republican House, the Senate, the presidency. Senator, Martinis, will I went to about twenty different states around the country for dozens of different candidates in the House and Senate because I recognize that if you wanted to do things like have gun violence perform and raise the minimum wage and pass the Equality Act and. Hold Administration accountable we needed to do so and you need to win back and. So I was in all those places. Santa Mark Literally was in zero not what congressman it's Mike Isakov here. This race has gotten pretty negative with attack ads on both sides, which is pretty surprising. For a Massachusetts Senate primary in which you do basically agree on most issues. How did this become such a negative race? Do I regret that. So look I would I would have hoped that this would have been a positive campaign from the beginning and you know you've those did debate last night you saw back and forth on this you know from the moment literally the moment got in this race I got it on a Saturday in that Monday, there was a negative about me on the cinemark his team put out right now and between. Online and his fundraising report is fundraising e mails. Their team has come at me pretty hard for the past. Of course, the past several months I I don't think anybody wants nobody likes certainly no with the subject of negative ads negative commentary I I think what we've also seen candidate here is. Because the biggest, some of the biggest differences between the two of us are the way in which we approach this job, and there's some boats that are worth highlighting, which I could get to in a second. But because of that, it's cove nineteen has also limited our ability to to actually show those differences and so what we've seen from that has been in the consequence of that because you can't get out and about end and show the type of retail based campaign of what it means when you bring people in and build the momentum and ask you believe heart of something you have the. Differences, highlighted by the distinction between the two and that ends up being an erosion over time where look I would say when I point out his voting record on things like the fact that he was against the desegregation of the Boston public schools or voted to protect Bob Jones University from allowing from a he'd tried to prevent interracial relationships now on campus to support from the Crime Bill, etc, and the way in which is treated some of his constituents who asked for help including Black Mom and dad who came to him to ask for help when their son was murdered by white police officer. and. He didn't do anything to help them, and in fact, use the word colored in the meeting. The senator can refer to that as a negative. Those are also factual. That's not run another. Yeah well, one issue that market has gone after you on is that you're running on your family name and which is not the first time. A Kennedy has faced that charge as I'm sure you know your uncle great uncle any I, ran for the Senate in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two primary opponents said if your name was Edward Moore instead of Edward Moore Kennedy, your candidacy would be a joke but that said your father pumped two point eight million dollars into a super PAC that is running ads in favor of your campaign..

"Again beautiful green grass on the side but it was the way was when I was growing up the trump administration is like systematically tried to rollback. So many of those protections that the EPA was in ceding under the Obama Administration. has just been making things so much more dangerous water some of the ways in 'cause I I learned in in an episode we got to work with a girl who work with the sunrise movement and limited one of their houses in Philadelphia and she was explaining to me how like there's certain companies are like. Top ten companies create like some of the most you know greenhouse emissions in the world. What are some of the biggest offenders when it comes to? Just offenders in the environmental stuff in how does the trump administration bolster their impact on the environment? Well, look, we gotta go back a hundred years because for one hundred years. We've been giving out of our pockets, taxpayer's pockets, tax breaks to the oil industry. So the coal industry. So the natural gas industry. Now when we say let's have tax breaks for wind and solar they go. Oh, that's socialism. But for one hundred. Years. Who had socialism? The wealthiest industries, the biggest polluting industries and they use their political power now in the trump administration to roll back. All those regulations that have been put on the books by President Obama by all the predecessor presidents going back to the dawn of the environmental movement about nineteen. Seventy. So they have a you know. They have a pass to pollute now. Anything that they wanted to have taken off the books they went to the EPA, an EPA's written new regulations just to give them pollute permission to pollute. And it's across the board. It's actually oil gas and coal listen to this. A coal lobbyist is now the head of the EPA in oil lobbyists is the head of the Department of Energy and oil lobbyists is now the head of the Department of Interior that's that's all you know. All three of those departments are headed by a coal lobbyist, former lobbyists, all oil lobbyists retro, and so that's that's the trump administration in a nutshell. In. Two Thousand and seven I was successful in. co-authoring law I was the lead Democrat to in the house to increase fuel economy standards which President Obama used to increase the fifty four point five miles per gallon. Enact still the largest single reduction of greenhouse gases of any law ever passed in any country at any time reduce greenhouse gases well, trump just. TOLD HIS EPA in department you just roll back. We don't have to make the vehicles we drive Laura Vision and why is that important? Well, we because we put seventy percent of the oil we consume into vehicles. So if you don't make more efficient than you can't reduce greenhouse gases but if you double the fuel economy standards, which is what that law does. You back out three million, four, billion barrels of oil a day that we never have to consume in the greenhouse gases never went up the atmosphere. So the oil in the oil industry just went to trump and instead give us permission to to pollute again and so the rolled back in court right now why we need Joe Biden. Is President of so that we can make sure that these regulations that are on the books don't get rolled back put a whole new group of even stronger regulations on the books for the future. Because that's part of that administration lawsuit against. California. For basically saying like you know Californians did all the car manufacturers they're like adhere to certain standards in the trump administration said those are too aggressive in dinner ep like sue the State of California for being too aggressive on greenhouse the things in. Which I also think interesting because Republicans are supposed to be the party of states, rights, states, kind of like governing themselves and have always noticed that that's the case unless it comes to like marijuana reform. Greenhouse reform or rights to reproductive autonomy for people's bodies or LGBTQ staff. We. Do need to take a really quick break and they'll be right back with more senator markey after this.

"And Lgbtq rights, and his main case against Kennedy is that the congressman doesn't have. Have a credible record as a progressive that he's shifted positions over time. For example he points out that after Kennedy graduated from law school. He went to work for Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe a tough law and order conservative and there have been other policies that Kennedy has shifted his stance on and market asked the question last night in the debate you know was this political convenience you know, or was it conviction, and obviously his suggestion is that it's political convenience so that he can you know the so that he can get into the Senate. I don't think that the stakes are low here, but as you talk about them, trying to distinguish themselves from each other I think about when I was in academia, there was a saying that the battles are so fierce because the stakes are so low and I. do find you talking about this battle over. Who's more progressive when they hold similar. Policies is one of them more progressive than the other. Well, it depends who you talk to, so it's interesting I mean if you say they're both progressives and I've said this in my. I got absolutely hammered on twitter by Marquis. Supporters. Who you know basically say it's just absolutely absurd to call Kennedy a progressive because of of his past some of his past positions, and because Marquis. Does deserve this reputation as a solid consistent progressive advocate in Washington for decades. Now that said there are places that actually measure. There's a website I'm blanking on the name, but actually scores progressive votes in Congress and Markey got like a ninety eight percent score, and Kennedy got a ninety seven percent score, so in of how they vote and the issues they support. They're very very similar, but I think it is fair to say that you know. Mark He's been in office since before. Kennedy was even born. He's been in Washington since before Kennedy was even born. He has a much longer record as a progressive I think you can say that without without getting much debate so that that's but again on the issues. There's there's not a dime. WITH BETWEEN THEM! So then we've got gotta turn to the differentiation that we can see I'm asking thinking. Polling numbers fundraising numbers according to that stuff? Where does the race stand right now? Well? When Kennedy jumped into this race, he jumped out according to the polls with a with a pretty sizable lead in a lot of that had to do with just because how well Kennedy's name polls in this in this state. You know if you're young. If you're handsome and your name, Kennedy, you're GonNa pull better than just about anyone in the state, but as the race went on that. Difference tightened in the last poll, which is still months ago before the pandemic showed that it had tightened quite a bit. So we don't have recent polling numbers, my guess is it's close. In terms of the fundraising numbers marquee might even have a slight edge the market people are very happy with the latest. Quarter that not only showed them raising a lot of money, but lots of donations and small amounts of donations, but they're basically tied in terms of their fundraising marquee had a slight edge. Now Marquis is out with his first ad in the race, and it's a clear response to Kennedy's attacks because he really plays up his Mauldin routes and service to the community. We can listen to a little bit of that if you want. This is where I'm. My father was a Milkman. I drove an ice cream truck to pay for college lessons I learned here. Still drive me today. Don't be scared of the tough fights. That's why I was an original sponsor of Medicare from all. The why?.

So do on July fourth by the way right you could have done this at any time. This? Week. Down the week before might have they choose the holiday on July fourth. Okay We know that regardless of offend. A lot of people come to the store to shop right and yet decide to do that on a day on they were supposed to be celebrating they decide to make a move that is so this appoint and not just because these are union members usually just workers. Are the local fourteen, forty, five members by These workers in the grocery stores who many times I've seen as less than the workers are now have this. Situation where we call them heroes all the time. But yet we don't treat them like heroes Ns Joe's unacceptable for us whether you in the union or not. But obviously stopping short workers union the very. Strong Union members, and we know that what we do here, stop and shop. We'll get replicated on an award as well, and that's what we're fighting for all workers in. Massachusetts. Not just stopping shop a grocery workers but every grocery stores in the states should be should continue to receive hazard pay and will say one last thing that when stopping shop responded on their statements, they said that this was a a bonus to say thank you to those workers due. To the high volume of customers coming into the stores this wasn't because there was a high volume of because they're working hotter these work every day they work hard every day serving communities they need to understand. This was a dangerous situation. Okay. Continues to be dangerous. This isn't just a good bonus as a matter of fact. Stephen enough for the mine at work and these work is an amount of risk that they're taking for us for my family and our communities around. Boston and the whole state.

"Republican Party, always events the biggest business in any fight it. So they're they're like congenitally incapable of actually backing small businesses. You are. Right. In, the effort to collapse the oil gas coal industry, we're going to have to create tens of thousands of small businesses, insulating homes installing solar win. Bending new technologies. That will be deployable to solve this problem up just to do let's just say just insulate is to. Make, more efficient every public building, every private building in and out of states that's going to be millions of people. It's going to be small businesses all across the country hiring. People to give them the skillset they need to win and have the energy consumption by fifty, seventy, five percent in all of these buildings. So so we it's a little bit like the Internet where.

Economic interests can get online without having to beg for permission from the cable other telephone company so that they create the new ideas well, the same thing is going to be true in the clean energy sector in the energy efficiency sector of we'll have smaller business people who will be elevated doing all of the things we h dramatically in telescope timeframe, reduce the greenhouse gases that are endangering. Thank you senator. Covy nineteen I know you've been asking for more relief. Right now dispensing reports coming out that people in July. Thirty percent of people that had a mortgage in pay their July bill pop, or at least part of it in at thirty, six percent of renters didn't pay their July bill either. What's going to happen here is they're going to be any more relief. It seems like I I know it's not seems we know people falling between the cracks at that.

"There's some way that they might make it a weaker sanded, but they can't do it with Donald Trump is president. What Mitch McConnell is a majority leader in the Senate then it's not going to happen because people will just revolt if you take away their privacy protections right over the last couple of weeks, though we've seen a lot of Republicans, authoring beds, lamenting the fact that some Democrats are asking for specific concessions. Privacy Law they want to have that preemption clause in there, and for our listeners. That's getting rid of all those what could be weaker, even stronger laws at the state level, but they're also asking for a lot of the proposals from Democrats have had to do with the private right of action, so if you could sue these companies if they do violate whatever privacy rights we decide, people have in the future. Future is it Democrats having a hard time coming to terms with like a private right of action or these things with Democrats and Republicans are what's going on. Do we see like a national privacy law coming into place anytime soon? yeah, I think it's a larger issue. You know for many of the companies that they just don't like the idea that their business model is based on the compromise about privacy. It's taking our information and selling it to advertisers I mean that's the business model, so the whole idea here is antithetical to them, and it goes back to them, killing my privacy bill of rights and nineteen ninety-six. You know that was so they could create this business model you know, and now they're in the PU perfect vom businessman, so as Democrats are just going to be pushing them. You know to make sure that we have a from my perspective. OP In from my perspective of super-duper Privacy Bill of rights for for kids up to sixteen. with a right to race with the right to say to the company just race all the stuff about my thirteen year old daughter I don't know what she was thinking about. What we don't want it to come up on college application. We don't want it to come up when she's you applying for a job sometime. Let's give immunity to these kids. Let's give kids the right to young the right to grow up the right to make mistakes so we're. Kind of saying across the board that we just need to be. Realistic about how pervasive this intrusion is. Again last week's vote was not hopeful to me. Is that was unnecessary? That was you know we would go along with you saying we want to go through that person's browsing account. We think that person is a heinous individual who? Has committed a crime, or as potentially going to commit a car. You know that's fine, but. This wholesale compromise of People's privacy is just now increasing part of the culture you know wired magazine had favorites Kaba back in one thousand, nine hundred five privacy. GET OVER IT! You don't have it right. And so that's Kinda the motto of the Federal Government and the private sector, so getting a deal coming back to your question, getting a deal and privacy. It's not going to be easy. I can reuse it because. It has to be strong enough. You know that people get the protections which they're going to do. As we talked to the CEOS of the big companies, Dunkelberg we talked to Chai one of the points that Mark Zuckerberg in particular makes a lot is at least this is an American company and I need to be this big with this big will needs to be this big to export American values, and if you don't let us operate the size and regulate us at this scale, what you will see as Chinese, companies take over the global Internet. What does companies for? Example is tiktok which is enormously popular teenagers in this country right now. They just hired the former head of Disney. Streaming service to be their new CEO obviously bulking up here. Do you see that as as an actual solid argument that we need to basically regulate the American Internet giants into place to keep out sort of particularly Chinese interference with their absences, and they're going to collect data. Data in totally different ways well, if if I heard what you said, you said his human is. We need facebook too big so that we can exploit American values in one of those values will be. We compromise your privacy on a minute to minute basis, so I don't show. That's an American value that we WANNA be exporting I. think that we want. We want to be thinking more like the Europeans. Californians. Win On who we are we are. We have to have the strength of our own convictions that the American values are the best values. And you can't compromise to a lowest common denominator because you feel that does some kind of marketplace disadvantage to you you to have just a confidence in your own ideas and your ideals, and that's my hope for our Internet industry. that. They realized that that's really what makes us great. And the Chinese have a plan and we need our own plan. Let it to be an American plan with American values ultimately that we will be able. To convince the rest of the world that we are right, so that would be my answer and I would say that it would be good if facebook stepped up and said here's here's what the Privacy Bill of rights should be in America. Everyone sixteen and under just be the leader. Here's his proposal is what we want. No, here's what the proposal should be for privacy for adults as well then I think to a certain extent that would then become something that was. Was American born bred in ultimately marketed to the rest of the world. So not answer is no, you know. We don't have to cut mice away. Are we have to be more like us? In order to beat the Chinese we have to be more like us have to stand up for what we believe we can already see. China wanted to be part of the WTO, but not part of the W. H., o. or the second comment. Responsibility is trade and tourism, increases. If, you're going to be a part of that that you have to notify the world. Right up front. That is healthcare prices coming. They don't want that responsibility. I have one last question for you just to wrap things up your sitting US senator. There's an enormous conversation this country about reopening getting back to work lighting up the again. What is your position on that? And what is the Senate need to do to actually make that happen outside of sort of the Patrick approach that. We're seeing right now. It's not a question of when we open. There is no date. It's only data, not a date, not when we open, it's how wheel so you can't open without massive testing. We just can't. We have it. You can't open without massive contact tracing. We don't have can't open without massive amounts of personal protective equipment for everyone in every workplace. That's effective. We don't have it so I think we have to be very cautious at the follow the sites. We don't want to have a boomerang effect where people move too fast and too many areas of our economy, and then we just wind up right back where we started because we had a lack of caution, so from my perspective, we can't do it, but It's only if we put in place, all of those protections which we know. are going to be necessary, also then ultimately, be realistic than until we find a treatment are virus. We hope it happens soon. You know we're not going to have a novel and we're going to have to be careful. And again as I said to you when pilgrim health and toughs have ninety percent of the employees at home that you can say. Go back to work with people looking at it objectively not going to go back unless they're sure that they're safe. And that's testing contact, tracing and personal protective equipment, and it's still not there in sufficient quantities. That's when we'll start to see the recovery. Center mark. Thank you so much for the time. That was.

"And a Jeep Pie obviously took those rules off the books after the Obama Administration had put them on the books at my urging my strong urging. And so in that area, the end in other areas yeah, the FCC takes this quote as you're saying light-touch approach, which is in many instances, no touch it all in terms of consumers, competitors to the broadband companies in terms of ensuring that there is a full deployment of all of these technologies in a way. That benefits everyone in our society. After after we get through this pandemic and we look back. We're GONNA realize that broadband has become the equivalent of water electricity for people. They have to have it. They can't operate without it and anyone who doesn't have. It's going to be left. Behind are severely. Impeded in terms of their ability to fully participate so from my perspective. Yeah, this this FCC must be replaced with a new FCC with a Biden FCC that more fully reflects the Obama FCC Tom Wheeler is the chairman. That was more activist on on on privacy, more activist on net neutrality activists, and ensuring that there is full access for children and for adults to. To access to the incident, so let me let me just push back a little bit. I think all of our listeners know extremely pro net neutrality, but the pushback is hey. Nothing went. Nothing went wrong. Right the. We're all more dependent on the Internet. Now you still have free access to services. We don't see the tiered pricing. We don't really see that much paid prioritization. There is a lot of. We don't see throttling. There's a lot of bundling at and T. is going to bundle it streaming service. All that's happening, but the really bad stuff didn't happen. And the ISP's are still spending money in the core of the network has held up in America, even though there has been the surge of demand. Do you think that is like an appropriate counterarguments? Does that hold water review? Well, I guess what I would say is because it was in court for so long that the ISP's were careful. They didn't want to give any evidence that they were doing anything wrong. Why was it good? You know and so you know and that's vision. I would take I with them I. wouldn't be doing anything that was bad. I'd be saying look at no problem. Look, we're still but again. They were still deploying at the same rate. Under the net neutrality regime of as they are, you know as they've ever been so. The evidence wasn't there that they were being harmed by it, but there was plenty of evidence in the past that they were harming smaller companies. When we didn't have net neutrality as a formal rule on the books at the Federal Communications Commission in order to protect competitors and consumer, so we'll wait, we'll see here. What happens going forward, but I have full confidence in the broadband companies inability to resist temptation. And, Revert to their previous personality. To was the reason why net neutrality was in the first place? Right I kind of want to track back to what we were talking about before I came to the homework gap. This is something I've done a lot of reporting on recently and when I talked to school districts in even urban cities like San Antonio their kids with their parents driving, two buses parked around the city every night to hook up their computers, because sometimes they have chromebooks, and if you have a chromebook, you need to have an Internet connection to even use it most of the time, so you've you've been very. Supportive of the rate program in for our listeners at home. The Eric Program is basically the FCC's primary program when it comes to connecting schools and students to the Internet and you have a plan that just came out recently and I opened carries. If you WANNA talk about that that would bolster the ray program with billions of dollars to kind of get kids in schools connected. So when we were doing those big telecommunications laws in one, thousand, nine, hundred and I was to lead Democrat. Yeah, the cable companies wanted to get into telephone telephone companies wanted against cable long-distance wanted to get into local phone and into cable. Everyone wanted to get into other people's business, but they didn't want anyone in their business, so they wanna meet a do and what I wanted to do was break down all the monopolies. Everybody can do everything one big free fall, so the cable companies telephone companies you can provide video service Internet service phone service long distance. Everybody can do everything. So and I knew that that was going to unleash a broadband revolution it had to because everyone was gonna have all the additional Zeros and ones that they were going to be trying to send out through. There are systems, and so that's your opportunity to get something good, and so what I said to them was I want a program called. The are the education rate where every time someone is making a phone call. There's a little little tax on. On it, and that just goes into a fund, and that fund then provides the funding, so that in Roxbury or Harlem. South Central La those kids have access to the Internet on their school desk and the reason I knew that was that I had gone over to the BBC junior high high school, which is where my cousin Mary taught math. The math gene runs through the FEM. The female side of my family and she taught at the BB. Junior high, and she had me over there, and she had a computer in her classroom will like twenty five kids who were all huddled around while she was doing. A program a problem. And at the end of it I ask the kids. How many of you have a computer at home? And like five for the kids race I was mauled and I'm still a Mauldin right now. I'm still in the same. blue-collar House that I grew up in invite. Kids raised a hint. Well I didn't have to worry about. The kids from Newton Brookline a Westchester larchmont. They were going to be taken care of. They already had a computer at home. It was already building a huge advantage for those kids against the kids who come from blue collar in poorer communities so when I was a kid if you took your. Your books on my father was a Milkman. You could compete against the school, Superintendent's son or daughter. You can do it just study hard, but increasingly does technology gap a digital divide which is what we called it back then digital divide, and we have to close it, so that's what this program was intended to do. Because I learned from my cousin Mary the Matt Teacher at a junior high school. Kids who had always been smart as the kids in the suburbs as long as they studied harder now going to be able to compete to get into the college of their choice, the job of their choice, because they wouldn't have the technological skill set, so that was kind of the origin of the rate, so I built into a bill in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety four, and then that passed the house, but was killed in the Senate, but then we built it into the nineteen. Ninety six telecommunications act, and it's now spent fifty four billion dollars fifty four billion dollars. Who've I'd access for poor kids. To the Internet in their classroom, but now as you're saying kids in our home, and once again you say Oh, my goodness, all these kids twelve million of them. They don't have the same access as the kids out in the suburbs. So what I've done is I've introduced a bill that has everyone of the Democrats with me I forty five Democrats on with me, saying that we should add four walk billion dollars to the program to provide the. The help all these kids at home to make sure they get the Wi Fi and other technologies. They're going to need so that they can keep up. I mean they might be in situations at home with his five kids and one one device and broadband right, and they all have to study will and mom and Dad. They also have to use it if I so, how are we going to deal with us? These kids are GONNA wind up. With release us with regard to how they're going to view their place in the world. If we don't make sure that that money is there to provide them full access, so that's what I will do. It's to deal with this issue and I. Am I look at the issue of kids right now, and we need to make sure that there's going to be mental. Health access provided that we're going to be dealing with all of the issues. They could come up from being in isolation, but you don't WanNA compounded by having a homework APP. These kids can be competitive, but what no place to go, and in some cases not as talented or as talented just sprints ahead and getting kind of the plots for doing so well during the crisis coming back like you know like there was nothing that was missed, and these other kids are Gonna come back left behind, and we just can't allow that to happen, so that's what I've done introducing that..
