Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from House committees
"News. Last night, House Republican leadership met for hours trying to decide what to do about controversial GOP congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the end, the deeply divided house voted 230 to 1 99 to strip her of her committee seats over incendiary remarks she made before being elected in November. Before the vote, Congressman Greene spoke to her colleagues saying it all started after President Trump was elected. She certainly supported him. But she didn't like what she heard about Russian collusion. These things bothered me deeply. And I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I Started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something and this is at the end of 2017 called Q it on Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news at night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. Ask questions about it, and then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018. Because I was upset about things and didn't trust the government. Really? Because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about And I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is, though, is I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret. Because if it weren't for the face, book post and comments that I liked and 2018, I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong. Because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of And that's what my district elected me for. So in 20 later in 2018. When I started finding Miss information lies things that were not true in these. Q and on post, I stopped believing it. After Congressman Greene spoke Majority leader Steny Hoyer reference the historic nature of this vote. It was pretty historic when you think about what they did last night, where 11 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to kick her off of those committees. I've had the great honor of serving this body for 40 years. And in that time I have never encountered a situation like the one before us. Now we remember has made such vile and hurtful statements engaged in harassment of colleagues. Expressed support. Political violence. To do nothing. Would be an abdication of our moral responsibility to our colleagues to the house to our values to the truth and to our country. I've heard some condemnation from across the aisle of the contents. Representative Green statements. Some have condemned the white supremacist an anti Semitic things, she said, and posted online, some of condemned the falsehood she shared about 9 11. And the horrific school shootings. But I've heard little from Republicans about the horrific statements made by their colleague making threats of violence against Democratic elected officials. And her threatening conduct towards represented Bush and others. Indeed, Mr Speaker, there seems to be much silence when it comes to her incitement of political violence. Short while ago Representive Green came to this Florida defender indefensible conduct. I heard no apology. She claimed that we are here today only because of something she wrote online before she ever ran for Congress. And if one's moral slate is wiped claim when one becomes a candidate for office Regardless, the conduct we are judging today continued to occur even after represented Green became a candidate and even after she was elected, there is no doubt that if somebody came to the Congress, and it said before they came to gun Congress Am for violent revolution against the government of the United States of America, that your party Would say That's not somebody we want to be associated with. That's not what she said. I do not assert that What should we do Less? Then you did for Steve King for far less toxic language. Let us not do nothing. Let us do the right thing.

"And that's a strongly held position on which I've been clear since well before representative Bin Klein, Republican of Virginia, the adoption of this political resolution would be divisive rather than unifying. Vice president has said he has no intention of taking action under the amendment, so this process is pure political theater on the part of the majority. In addition, no due process has been provided. As a former prosecutor of law enforcement, brought evidence of a crime to me and said, Take this to the jury tomorrow for a jury trial. There'd be no chance for the defendant to prepare any defense. I'd be violating half the Constitution, Dakota, Virginia over 100 different rules of procedure. More than 50 years Since the 25th amendment was ratified, Section four has never Been invoked. Such there no judicial or authoritative opinions that would evaluate its implementation and absent this, we must must look to the legislative intent of the Congress that passed its language and nowhere in the legislative intent is the current situation envisioned. Meant to be used for incapacity, not for political ends with eight days remaining in a president's term. Last week vice president Pence was lauded by the majority for not yielding to pressure to exert power beyond his constitutional authority to determine the outcome of the election. Yet the majority today is attempting to pressure him to exert power beyond the intention of his constitutional role in section for the 25th amendment. This action will only further fuel the political divide among our citizens. Will be detrimental to the long term efforts to unify our country. Mr Speaker. Both President Trump and President elect by and have called for a peaceful transition of power would encourage members of both parties to work toward this end. And vote against this rushed, misguided, politically motivated resolution. I go back. I mean, years back reserve, gentlemen. Reserved gentlemen. Reserves the gentleman from Maryland. My now yield. One minute Miss Lofgren, General Lady from California Mr Offerman, chairman as O'Laughlin Administration committee is recognized. Mr Speaker last week is we can't ID electoral college votes. I said this day marks a crossroads for our American democracy. We didn't know. Then what an ominous statement. That was we do now. Congress was attacked by a violent mob incited by the president to stop us from doing our constitutional job. The president not only encouraged the mob, he said, he loved them. And may no serious effort to stop them. Lives were lost and put in danger. Constitutional government was urgently threatened. The president's actions were not only wrong, they were dangerous. He lives in an alternate reality. He's a continuing threat to America. Vice president. Pence would invoke the 25th amendment assume presidential duties until the inauguration next week and save us from a president who is unable to function. Unable to protect our country. I urge all including my Republican colleagues to put politics aside. Act to secure the safety of our country. We truly are at a crossroads for our American democracy. Gentlemen from Maryland. I reserve reserve. Right. The gentleman from Ohio is recognized. Ms. Speaker you two minutes to the gentleman from Arizona. Mr Donovan's recognized. Thank you, Mr Speaker. The violence, the capital last week, has been condemned by Republicans, Democrats and by President Trump. So I wonder, why are the Democrats stoking the fire instead of dousing the flames? This. This 25th amendment resolution is actually similar with some differences from the proposal filed in October of this year. By this same representative and joined by 42 Democrats. The problem that time is they were trying to representative and beings Republican Arizona. They want the vice president, too. Invoked the other portion of Article four. But the problem, of course, is The vice president said. Very lovely letter to them, saying he's not going to do that. So our nation is divided. And while folks on the left are trying to lay this on President Trump You should consider a few. A few statements from colleagues across the aisle. One of our colleagues at one point said If you see anybody from that cabinet meeting Mr Trump's Cabinet in a restaurant and department stores, gas stations, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them. And you tell them they're not welcome here. They're not welcome anymore anywhere. Senator Booker calling for his supporters to go to the hill today. Get up and please get up in the face of some Congress, people. I have dozens of more similar statements. But what we're talking about here today is a resolution asking the vice president To invoke The 25th amendment and get the cabin together to remove this president and what that does it is basically doing with Democrats wrongfully claim President Trump did On January 6. It pours gas on the smoldering embers, which consists of tens of millions who believe the integrity of the election was questionable. They feel disenfranchised and quite frankly, they are more angry than aggrieved. Some believed that by doing this is going to be healing. I heard this gentleman say this in the rules committee that doing doing this today would be healing. And yet, the vice president said he's not going to do that. And if this resolution is to ask the vice president to invoke this 25th amendment Gentleman has an additional 30 seconds. Thank you. If this is what the purpose of this is to ask the vice president Then the purposes now know, and we'll just mention as representative Andy Biggs finishes. They're adding a little bit of context when he says millions of people feel disenfranchised because they feel the election was stolen from their side. He's correct about people's feelings does leave out that the president has lied to the country for a couple of months about his defeat in the election, which was affirmed by all 50 states and dozens of courts don't get in the way. And just that apparent my left the last speaker. I'm asking friends across the aisle. Don't do this thing. Gentlemen from Ohio You reserve And we'll continue to the Democratic side, Gentlemen from Maryland, Mr Speaker, the gentleman Reasonably poses the question. Why are we doing this? Jamie Raskin again. The president, I'd states constitutes a clear and present danger to the Republic and to our people. For example, on the white supremacist web sites that helped to build the president's mob. They are now calling for a return engagement. On the days of January, 19th and 20. They're calling again for an attack on the Capitol, and they're calling again. For the state legislatures. Now in 50 states to be surrounded. What will the attitude be of the president of United States? Will he give them aid and comfort? Well, he winked at them. Will he send them positive tweets and messages calling them Patriots. Also one extreme right wing websites. They're calling for the president to pardon the organizers of the armed, violent insurrection that took place in this body, not even a week ago. And what if the president decides to part in them? We know this president is not living up to the most minimal duties of his office. That's why we're doing this to protect the public, and by the way, we're not telling the vice president What he must do. We have no authority to do that. We're telling him what he thinks he should do and that the Congress will be with him because we know that he has come under extreme right wing pressure on everything from the counting of the electoral College votes to his positions on a whole range of things to go along with Donald Trump. So we're trying to counterbalance that attack on him from the right to say the people want to see a peaceful way through this. With that. I will recognize Miss Jackson Lee for women generated from Texas Miss Jackson Lee is recognized. Accountability comes before Sheila Jackson Lee, representative from Texas Democrat If we look at the Constitution will clearly see that Mr Raskin's resolution fits the language. An inability to be able to discharge your duties to exercise the laws carefully. Do you consider these words from the president of the United States to insurrectionists and to Maris? You walk down to the Capitol tells the president telling them if you don't fight like hell, you're not gonna have a country anymore. And that is the attack that the domestic terrorist made on this place. All we're asking the vice president through this resolution is reflect on that. And the call upon the 25th amendment to convene the Cabinet to begin the healing because Mr the President, United States is dangerous to the American people. That is why we're on the floor today. We hope that he will have an opportunity to reflect because the Constitution says, in many places that the actions of this president is dangerous. People have died. We have lost two police officers, others air in the hospital. And yes, it was an insurrection. It is time to pass a dress to anyone. Your latest time has expired. The gentleman from Maryland do you reserve? Yes, Gentlemen. Reserves gentleman from Ohio. Now we go back to Jim Jordan has been managing the debate on the Republican side and he passes to a colleague. Mr. Speaker..

UK leader: Britain at “perilous turning point,” scraps back-to-work drive, tightens restrictions amid virus resurgence
"The prime minister of the UK announced new pandemic restrictions to help get the Corona virus under control. Mr Speaker. We will spare no effort in developing vaccines treatments. New forms of mass tested. But unless we palpably make progress, we should assume that the restrictions I've announced will remain in place. For perhaps six months. Great. Britain had been making the opposite of progress after a summer when life largely returned to normal Corona virus numbers in the UK Rose, NPR London correspondent Frank Langfitt is living all of this. Hey there, Frank. Hey, Steve. What of the restrictions and how big a difference is it? Yeah, it's one of things is sort of a curfew for pubs, bars and restaurants are going to have to close at 10 P.m. Bar's Johnson also telling people to work from home if they can to avoid spreading the disease, which is a reversal of the government's position. This is coming after we're up to about 6000 Day in terms of cases, and this is what Johnson also had to say in the House of Commons today. This is the moment when we must act. If we can curb the number of daily infections on DH, reduce the reproduction rate toe one Then Then we we can can save save lives lives protected protected in in a a chest chest on on the the most most vulnerable vulnerable and and shelter shelter the the economy. economy. And And what what he's he's saying saying here. here. Steve Steve is is the the UK UK needs needs to to do do this this now now to avoid the kind of lock down that we saw back in March, which devastated a lot of businesses here, Okay, reducing the reproduction rate to one. That's a statistic he wants each new person on average tow infect less than one new person, although just saying the pub should close it. 10. Is that really a big enough change to make a difference? No, Steve. Most people don't seem to say that I see it that way. And I will include my daughter, Catherine in that she actually works our neighborhood pub and I talked about it this morning. And she says, you know, Late at night. People do get drunk, They become affectionate and there's a lot of ignoring of social distancing, so it will help to close down a little bit earlier, But last call there was at 11 o'clock anyway, so we'll be cutting time, much in that in that pub, and she doesn't think it's going to make that much of a difference, nor, frankly, I think to a lot of people here in England who have heard these measures today. I guess it does make some difference of people do work from home instead of going into the office, if somewhere and that will help. I mean, I think that I think that that will help some a lot of people that we're not going in right now, anyway, a lot of people out of convenience and otherwise they're staying out of London. What's the scientific community saying about these measures? I think something that it needs to go further than what the Gover what Boris Johnson is talking about. Other measures could include no mixing of households or a locked down for a couple of weeks that would try to put the brakes on the virus. It's clear that the government's deeply worried about the economy and doesn't want to go that far right now because the economy's been improving, actually Steve in the past couple of 23 months, and it doesn't want that stop. Now you go into hibernation, so to speak for another six months, according to Boris Johnson, is the country ready, though, if there is a big second wave It's better In some ways, you know, they figured out ways to use steroids to cut the fatality rate. And so that's been very positive. But on the testing front, we don't have the kind of testing system that we hope to many many months ago and cure Starmer. He's the leader of the opposition Labour Party, and today this is what he had to say to Johnson. We warned the promise two months ago that testing need to be fixed by the autumn, but the government didn't listen. They pretended it wasn't a problem. They didn't act quickly enough. Now the testing system isn't working just when we need it. And I got to tell you, Steve, this is a critique you here across the country. Most people I know are stunned that after all these months, the government has not been able to build a testing system that will meet demand.

Explainer 166: Was Australias shock election result really that shocking?
"The results of the federal election held in a stray Lee. This past weekend was one delighted the country's bookmakers except the one betting firm regarded the thing as such a foregone conclusion that they paid out on victory by the opposition labor party before vote was counted. Believed in miracles. And tonight we've been delivered in the what. Not for the first time in recent memory, the electorate of a western democracy declining to do as pundits and posters. Had confidently predicted a stray Lia returned to office, the conservative liberal national party coalition, led by incumbent prime minister Scott Morrison, despite more than three years of polling showing a consistent lead for the labor party led by Bill shorten. I, I. And we'll wanting to hold out of the also, it's obviously not all of them. It is, perhaps, tempting four to cast Morrison's, unlikely victory as yet, another populace tantrum thrown by these spoilt, people of a wealthy and orderly nation comparable with the Brexit vote of two thousand sixteen the election of Donald Trump the same year and the handing the reins of power in several European countries and regions to sorted varieties of cowboy. But this is not that the result of the two thousand nineteen Australian federal election is instead, something of a political paradox, being both surprising and predictable. It is surprising inasmuch as nobody expected it, at least not this time, but predictable in the sense that it is the nineteenth occasions since the end of World War, Two on which ustralia has elected, the liberal party and its conservative coalition partners, far from being another furious, incoherent tipping over of the tables, this may have been a rare vote for steady as she goes business as usual looked at like that. When contemplating the global context, it might even be vaguely reassuring. Which brings us to the question of what kind of prime minister Scott Morrison will be not before Saturday question that many thought even worth asking Morrison became prime minister in a party room coup only last August, and it was widely suspected that he was destined to be remembered if at all, only by these setters of pub, quizzes seeking to start arguments among competing teams over the identity of strenuous, twenty fifth florist serving prime minister. Instead Morrison finds himself with a full three year term ahead of him and every chance of being the first Austrailia and prime minister to complete one for more than a decade. This is not just due to the against the odds victory Morrison one at the weekend. But the manner of it Morrison whose pre politics background walls in marketing substantially sidelined, the rest of his front bench and may Delek Shen all about him hoping that he's slightly labored, persona of an awkward Ernest suburban dad would connect of let a few things about the prime minister of the last couple of days of whipped up on this visit that we've both chosen well, in terms of MRs body Miranda, and gin you, and I, maybe punching a bit above are white, but nevertheless, that the tactic worked is self evident, but Morrison will not necessarily find the going easy from here, though his win on Saturday was remarkable. It was also close and on a few key issues. Morrison is comfortably in minority among his fellow Australians. He is a Pentecostal Christian and instinctive social conservative. Not a common outlook in a largely secular and increasingly small l liberal country and Morrison is if not an outright climate change skeptic, then a climate change equivocated who now finds himself leading a people who consistently list the environment among the most pressing concerns. This seems to have been one of the reasons though the list of possibilities on this front is not short. Why the voters of were ringer, a hitherto, solid liberal seat on the proverbially, prosperous, north shore of Sydney dumped their long-serving MP, and former liberal, prime minister and big weirdo, Tony Abbott. It doesn't hurt to lose, but sided I'd rather be a loser and quit. Perhaps more interesting question than how the liberal party and Scott Morrison won this election is the one asking how the labor party and Bill shorten lost the supposedly on lose -able. They may have been an answer. In the notably bipartisan national mourning prompted by the death a couple of days before polls opened of Bob Hawke, one of shortens predescessors, as leader of the labour party and prime minister of stray Leah from nineteen eighty three to nineteen ninety one this government, Mr Speaker has the resources that talent and the skill maj, this dramatic vices better, and stronger, and even more prepared to put the interest of the ordinary threat in the country. Was by any measure, a substantial prime minister, but he was also a supreme political communicator, who understood the country needs to see something potential leader of what it is, or what it wishes to become in a stray Lia the liberal party traditionally offers the status quo labor. The vision Bill shorten in the estimate of a majority of the stray Leah's voters offered, neither his successor as leader of the labour party has both need and an opportunity to think big.

British PM loses another Brexit vote, and it could be strike 3
"Britain on the other hand seems to follow a different definition of deadline when it comes to Brexit. Anyway, remember today was supposed to be the day, the UK left the European Union March twenty ninth. It was the deadline to figure out how that would happen. And yet here we are again with no Brexit plan approved by the British parliament just today. Lawmakers rejected for a third time Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan, Mr Speaker fair we are reaching the limits. If this process in this house, it is totally fair to wonder how anybody is ever going to figure this out the world's oil a berry is in London. I'll resort to a baseball metaphor here is it three strikes and you're out for prime minister may. I'd like to give you a definitive answer on that Marco. But I think you should know by now this is three Somme we're talking about. And this is Brexit. We're talking about. So never say never melting nothing is clear we're closer to the cliff edge as we have been edging towards it for the last week and for the last few weeks. So what now while there are wounds again, and as always there are a number of options, we still have the option of April twelfth, which is the new Brexit days that being the day that Britain leaves without a deal. But as we know so well, so many people within parliament and indeed outside, and the general public are very multiple was to the idea of leaving without a deal that the belief is they will do anything to prevent that happening. Once again, of course, that would then depend on the e u saying that they were prepared to accept this kind of new option going forward, and how they would work that out is all up in the air, and it still leaves as many questions as as. Ever all makers taking these drastic measures and still no deal. I mean for the British public. This has gotta be immensely frustrating intensely frustrating, and in fact, outside parliament at the moment, if anyone sees the crowds that are outside parliament, the role was our protesters outside parliament, both levers and breaks tears, but today there are thousands upon thousands of leave boaters outside parliament today. Walls to beat the day that Britain was leave the EU so many took the day off and decided they would come to London, anyway, and and protests, and they're extremely frustrated and extremely angry have listened to what some of them had to say.

Chaos and calculation: Brexit
"Stay. Prime minister. There would be chaos if the United Kingdom were to crash out of the European Union without a proper divorce deal, but after months of widespread worry about that, no deal Brexit. It seems to have been avoided for now. Anyway. Commissioned Mr Speaker, I would like to make statements on the government's work to secure withdrawal agreement that can command the support of this house the deadline to agree a deal with the EU is in just over a month. Prime Minister Theresa may has told parliamentarians that if they don't vote in favor of the agreement she's already negotiated. She will empower them to vote for a delay to Brexit. So the United Kingdom one only leave without a deal on the twenty ninth of March. If there is explicit consent in the house for that outcome. Avoiding no deal scenario is one of the few aspects of Brexit for which there is a strong parliamentary majority that is not the case for Mrs Maes own deal, which he's still pushing to get through what's happening in this country. At the moment is that the government is losing control of events power is slipping away from the prime minister, quite news with that power is going Adrian Wooldridge rights badges are column about British politics. He was in the house of Commons for MRs maith announcement. That morning. She came to the house of Commons straight away from a cabinet meeting. We should be a very tense cabinet meeting in which number of members of our cabinet confronted her and said, you must extend you must take new deal off the table mustn't be the case that will be allowed to crash out of the EU without a deal, and that has been part of our negotiating position. So taken off the table was a huge embarrassment and reduction of power so power slipping away from the prime minister. So where does this leave the timetable is we understand what happens next? Well, the return things going on in the Commons of the moments. I mean, the atmosphere is electric the atmosphere is is furthered people in an extreme state of high political frenzy tying the government's hands by seeking commandeer. The auto paper. She's rather discourteous. The prime minister is delivering a statement. It should be and colleagues. No, I'm just under strong, feelings comics from the record. Everybody will get things going on his business made his speech chaos on the one hand and calculation on the other hand people trying to say what does this really mean? And I could see the members of the European research group, the hardliners that all in little plump all discussing as she was speaking. What do we do about this? What does it mean? So everybody was trying to think what does it mean mean what does it mean what she promised was. There will be votes on March twelfth he will vote on Mrs Maes deal that failed last time by thirty. It's very difficult to turn it around on the thirteenth. There will be votes on whether to accept new deal that will almost certainly there is a majority in the house against new deal then on the fourteenth whether to apply for an extension to the needing. Brexit day March the twenty ninth I think that would come onto majority in the house. So what are the important things? That's happened. This week is that Britain is unlikely believing the European Union on Brexit. They March the twenty ninth. It'll be leaving two months perhaps after that whatever the the extension if it comes to that do not find ourselves in the same position again close to that date. Absolutely. We do and it does seem that we're gridlocked that the sides of roughly the same size. They can't get a majority. And so that's probably the case. Both leaders have lost control of their parties or losing control of their parties were fighting desperately to keep control of that party's against very powerful forces and Theresa May con- controller cabinet. She can't control the lower ranks of her government, and she can't control her party. And that's also being strangely mirrored on the labor side where Jeremy open is also suffering from internal rebellions of significant rebellions and is desperately trying to reassert control. But at the expense of making very big concessions. His critics. Amid all this the labor party dropped its own breaks at bombshell, Jeremy Corbyn. The labour leader has said if Labour's owned Brexit withdrawal plan is rejected a vote today. He'll threw his weight behind public vote a second referendum. Mr. Corbin is still smarting from the resignation of nine MP's last week. They left the party in frustration at his Brexit strategy and its failure to tackle anti semitism on the face of labor who switched position to be in support of a second referendum. But that would only happen after Mrs Maes deal passes in parliament and macelroy senior editor of the economist. And one of our chief breaks apologists is skeptical that Mr. corbin's announcement has much substance. Jeremy cool been moved his party position this week to woods a second referendum quite clearly his shadow. Brexit secretary said that remain would be on the ballot paper, which is the big question for a lot of people who want this. However, that's not a commitment that we've. Yet heard unambiguously from Jeremy Corbyn himself, so to your mind than what's materially changed. Should we consider this week as the week that the the prospects for a second referendum really changed? I think we should consider as the week when the labor party was no longer able to straddle the positions as Abe liaise. It had done here to four Jeremy Kuban doesn't really want to second referendum wants a general election. He said it over and over again, but he has conceded that the emotion in his party, particularly with this breakaway group in mind that they want hit words second referendum from him. So you could see things moving gently not direction. Unfortunately, he hasn't spelled out. Whether it's the second referendum that most people mean, which is the woman that says, oh, we going always staying does the outcome of all this does the outcome for Brexit matter beyond that or is this just damage control by party leaders. I think it's to party leaders discovering, the Hoed way that Brexit is a powerful fragmentation of what they considered to be their power base so labor you're finding a leader from the left of the party who was trying to build a big momentum as he calls his movement sweeping away. The conservative government is finding that he has difficulties to unite his party around the Brexit question on the conservative side. You have a prime minister who's doubled down on getting do with the EU and eventually getting herds Dobbin, really hard core. Eurosceptics own booed and finding that process much harder.

Which will restore funding for the department of interior for the forest service center. The Environmental Protection Agency because it is simply wrong for federal workers to be held hostage. I it's wrong for people who depend on these agencies to be held hostage as a negotiating tactic on a completely unrelated policy issue the region, I represent has more than six hundred thousand acres of federal forests. It's the home to Olympic national park. One of the crown jewels of the national park system, and it overlooks the iconic Puget Sound. So I'm speaking today on behalf of the hundreds of.

Let's let's take it and bring an end to this unnecessary and painful, Trump shutdown Mr Speaker, I you back to my time. And I moved the previous yields time all time has expired questions on the previous question and all those in favor. Sita Bobby saying I oppose nay, the I seem to have it the eyes have it. Mr Speaker on mobile home. Thank you very much for speaker on that. I demand the as a Nathan. The as and as had been demanded those favoring. Taking the vote by as as please rise. Obviously a sufficient number having arisen as Naser ordered. Pursuant to clause nine of rule twenty this fifteen minute vote on ordering the previous question will be followed by five minute vote on adoption of the resolution if watered and the motion to suspend the rules on HR Tutut six by the as as this is a fifteen minute vote. House majority leader, Steny Hoyer, live on the floor of the house going into this vote break on the rule that would govern spending bills to reopen parts of the government, and we will return to the house when it finishes voting rule McCarron live when it actually takes up debate on one of these bills, the financial services Bill that includes the funding for the treasury department, the securities and Exchange Commission and includes money for the I R S earlier, we spoke to a Capitol Hill reporter the status. Of the shutdown and what congress is doing. This is she's been radio programming from Wednesday WC SPF in Washington as the government shutdown continues were joined by Kelly matrix, appropriations and budget reporter with CQ roll-call. What are some of the programs that are close at are having the biggest impact on the American public? Yeah. So the IRS, for example, treasury lots of national parks. Although some of those are some of those are trying to be kept open for longer. Remember? There was only five of the twelve appropriations bills funding the government that were actually enacted into law before the end of two thousand eighteen so the other seven that's homeland security commerce Justice science interior virement, agriculture transportation, HUD, and then there's also financial services. And then this this this homeland Bill is one of the most contentious ones. This is the customs and border patrol Transportation Security Administration. The people who check our bags and airports all a lot of these people are being forced to work without pay right now. And the big the big that that we are looking to is this Friday. When federal workers EPA, another one another big one are spent to get a paycheck and are going to miss pay. So Friday will be a big day where the the the impacts of the government shutdown now become really concrete. We'll tell us about the approach in the house last week one hundred and sixteenth gavels in they took up two packages of spending bills this week. They're taking up four separate bills. Why are they doing this approach of why are they starting with the the treasury, and I r s Bill the financial services Bill? So that's one of the most immediate impacts that people noticed the Trump administration president Donald Trump's administration has already tried to rearrange funds. So they say that these W twos and tax refunds can still start to be kind of they can at least issue out the WTO is because this is going to affect IRS refunds. But again, that's only a matter of how long extra funds kind of lying around in these agencies cough. Offers carry over balances other like small amounts of money and in various programs. They can somehow use their authority to move that money to keep things open. But again, so we're gonna I go with this financial services. Bill funding IRS treasury. This is going to be on Wednesday. The house is going to vote on a rule which contains four appropriations bills the first one they're then going to vote on separately. Send over to the Senate is financial services then on Thursday, we have agriculture then interior environment. And then on Friday, the expectation is consideration and passage of the transportation, HUD, Bill, so in addition to those those legislative vehicles you announced you you mentioned earlier which are spending bills they did at the very beginning of the convening of the one hundred sixteen congress the house is now also watching four other spending bills to the Senate this week. And if nothing else, you know, the House Republicans have been. A lot that this is just messaging. These bills are not approved by the president. If nothing else this is providing the Senate legislative vehicles on which they can move funding. Those to the president you've already seen the Senate with Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky using one of the appropriations bills approved on January third introduced by the appropriations chairwoman Nita Lowey of New York. You've already seen him put that on the calendar in use this fast track process to try to t- that Bill up for consideration. Even even though it's not particularly scheduled for any consideration. They're already starting to kind of get their hands on some of these house Bill so that they can have something ready to go with the deal on a related issue. We're seeing the reporting of your roll-call colleague Paul cross act and a piece just out in roll-call White House to put Medicare cuts on hold during shutdown. You're tweeting about that. Why is this important? This is really important because it introduces another potential deadline for. Lawmakers to come to action on the shutdown before something really really bad happens. So the current law under what's known as the pay as you go law states that within fourteen days of session, counting.

"Conversation with Kellyanne Conway counselor to the president earlier today in the White House driveway. Next on C span radio. We return live to the US house on this opening day of the one hundred sixteenth congress. They just finished up a procedural vote where Democrats. Killed or tabled tabled killed a Republican effort to change their rules package. Now returning to the regional debate with Jim McGovern rules committee chair democrat from Massachusetts. General Massachusetts is recognized for one hour. Thank you. Mr Speaker speaker for the purposes of debate only a yield the customary thirty minutes to the minority leader or his designate this case, Mr. Cole penny which time I myself such time as I may consume gentleman is recognized Mr Speaker during consideration of this resolution all-time yielded is for the purposes of debate only I asked you consent that all members be given five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks from HR five and HI sex without objection. Mr Speaker by ten million vote margin, the American people entrusted Democrats to run this body. So it is finally a new day for this congress. And this rose package is our first paternity to chart a new course and assign that we intend to run this place differently. These ideas were developed from the bottom up not the top down. We asked every member for their ideas from the longest serving to the newly elected, Democrats and Republicans alike. We spoke to experts inside and outside. This congress from every house committee from offices like the parliamentarian and the general counsel from the progressive caucus and the black caucus Hispanic caucus. The blue dot cock is and the bipartisan problem solvers caucus from outside groups engaged on these issues. We spent months varying suggestions and came up with the final package that reflects all corners of the democratic caucus and this congress never before has rules package been developed like this and our collaborative process made the final product a much stronger one it modernizes chamber and five key ways. I it restores the people's voice by aligning Congress's agenda. But the priorities of the American people. That includes enabling this house to defend the Affordable Care ACT's pre existing conditions coverage setting up consideration of HR won a historic set of reforms to reduce money and politics, creating a select committee on the climate crisis. So we know law, Greg nor. The defining issues. We all face and ending the home enroll to protect federal workers. Strengthening representation by giving rights to delegates and the resident Commissioner in the committee of the whole at assuring. They can be appointed to drink committees and honoring our commitment to workers by putting labor back in the committee on education and labor second. It restores the legislative process by returning to regular order at abiding by the principle that good idea should finally be debated and voted on again that includes establishing a real seventy two hour rule. So members of congress have time to actually read the major bills. They're voting on requiring bills to have a hearing in America before they go through the rules committee and to the floor, and creating a truly bipartisan select committee to modernize congress and keep ourselves accountable. So so that this place actually works for the American people third. It restores oversight ethics by cleaning up Washington and subjects the Trump administration to something. It has never had real oversight..
