"It apology as well. Hundred eleventh congress, and that was the good work of Mr. Senator Tom Harkin. I'd like to introduce the record the testimony from William dirty junior professor public policy. African on African American studies and economics at Duke University without objection, so done. And now I would like to come for the first panel, and we'd like to welcome to the first phantom Senator Cory Booker. Senator booker. State won't be entered into the record. Several is your statement to five minutes. Senator Booker represents the state of New Jersey in the United States, Senate, toper, sixteen twenty thirteen he won a special election and on November four twenty fourteen. He was reelected, full six year term. He sits on the Senate Judiciary foreign relations, small-business, interpreter entrepreneurship and the environment of the public works committees. He is the sponsor of s ten eighty three the Senate companion h r forty he received his JD from Yale Law School and his undergraduate degree from Stanford University where they also play football. He was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford University, earning an honours degree in history. And if Booker welcome and you're recognized for five minutes. Thank you very much chairman, Adler Herman Cohen, ranking member Collins and ranking member Johnson, I'm glad in my written testimony will be put into the record. I just want to say that I'm sitting before you on many days that I come down to Washington. Brokenhearted and very angry. I live in a black and Brown inner-city community below the poverty line of lived in worked in communities, like this, all my adult life and yesterday hundreds of yards from where I live. There were seven black men shot. And this isn't everyday occurrence in America. I have the privilege of having leaders in my community who over the decades have given me strength. One of them was a woman lived on the fifth floor of the projects, ten president and some buildings in which I live, whose son was murdered as well in our community. And she taught me that hope is the active conviction that despair won't have the last word, but on a day like this. When I come back to Washington, DC, seven people shot in my community. I wonder if other senators had people shot like that in their neighborhood. Whether that wouldn't be a lead national story, but I see the lives of low income folks alive with black and Brown folks when people are shot and killed world seems to keep going on. And so I wonder about having the last word what happens when the last word is no words wanted. Silence. And I feel a sense of anger, where we are in the United States of America, where we have not had direct conversations all about a lot of the root causes of the. Equities and the pain and the hurt manifested economic disparities, manifested in health, disparities, manifested in a criminal Justice system. That is indeed a form of new Jim crow. And so we as a nation have not yet truly acknowledged grappled with racism, and white supremacy, that has tainted this country's founding continues to persist in those peop- racial disparities in qualities today. This is a very important hearing. It is historic is urgent I look at communities like mine, and you could literally see how communities were designed to be segregated designed based upon enforcing institutional racism, and inequities. We know that racial is violence and terrorism has persisted from reconstruction, well into the nineteen fifties as my friend, Brian Stevenson's national memorial for peace and Justice shows, we've seen bomb. Ming's of churches. We've seen massacres places as recently as the Emanuel AME church just four years ago, the stain of slavery was not just inked in bloodshed. But in the avert state-sponsored, policies, fueled white supremacy, and racism and have disadvantaged African-Americans economically for generations. Many of the bedrock policies. In fact, that ushered generations of Americans into the middle class were designed to exclude African Americans from the GI Bill to social Security Institute, intentionally designed to exclude blacks, as was school segregation, redlining neighborhoods like the one in which I live, which were bydesign walled off and disinvested, and while these policies of the past their damage and their reality has endured across generations have created and led to so much of the racial wealth, gaps in our country right now. We see cities like Boston where the average white family has somewhere around. Two hundred and forty thousand dollars in wealth, and the average black family has about eight dollars in wealth health outcomes, also vary widely by writ. Why race national black women nearly four times as likely to die from pregnancy, complications, white women, and so many other areas or criminal Justice system as well. No difference between blacks and whites. We're using drugs or selling drugs, but African Americans are about four times more likely to be arrested. These injustices to not just 'cause injustice African Americans it, enforces a deep injustice in our nation as a whole, it is a cancer on the soul of our country and hurts the whole body politic making us all less wealthy. Making us all less just making us all fall far short from being who we say, we are when we swear an oath that this would be a nation of liberty and Justice for all. I believe this is an urgent moment. And this Bill. I am now leading on the Senate side is the beginning of an important process. Not just examples and study this history that has not been addressed the silence that persists, but also to find practical ideas to address the enduring injustice in our nation. The characterizations of such an effort that I hear from others. His wrong and undermines or collective purpose and common Graham. This idea that it's just about writing a check from one American to another false far short of the importance of this conversation, what I believe we will truly talk about. I say that I am brokenhearted and angry right now. Decades of living in a community where you see how deeply unfair this nation is still to so many people who struggle, who work hard who do everything. Right. But still find themselves proportionately with lead in their water super funds in their neighborhood, schools, that don't serve their genius. Healthcare disparities that still affect their body and their wellbeing. We as a nation must address, persistent inequalities, or we will never fully achieved the strength and the possibility hope is the active conviction that despair will not have the last word. I believe right now today. We have a historic opportunity to break the silence to speak to the ugly pass and talk constructively about how we will move this nation forward as the old African saying, says, if you wanna go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together, it's about time we find the common ground in the common purpose to deal with the ugly past and make sure that generations ahead do not have to continue to Mark disparities, but can truly talk about a nation whereas our ancestors, spoke from the good book where Justice rolls down, like water and righteousness like a mighty stream New Jersey. Democratic Senator Cory Booker live coverage on C span radio chairman, thank you so much. Senator Booker appreciate your. Testimony heartfelt and receive. I also want to just reiterate congressman out green was here and great champion. Now, I'd like to call upon our second panel. Thank Senator Booker for sponsorship and his statement under words. Thank you, sir. Second panel they come forward. I guess we need shares. Here we go chair crowd is here. Good..

"Should you'd be the best that wakeup calls. Morning maury. Thank you for staying king in antiquites marine. You sound like an old law from frozen. Steve you do it. I love all. About that. Maureen. Oh a little bit. I think so I hear it to get to this poll. Can you go? This poll is on Twitter, which is where Amanda also just said Donna will be renting Mary Poppins and watching it with a couch and shoulders full of pigeons. What's funny about you saying that reminds you of that person, the pigeon, lady from whatever home alone to whatever Disney movie you wanna pick on? This isn't the first time people have told me this not about the pigeon lady, but very similar. Yes. Like, I've been told them like the fuzzy end of one of those pens that you rub in their hair. You know, the trolls at the end feels like that'd be more me now. Yes. On. Yeah. But I've gotten that you know, I was waiting for you to say, MRs Roper. Whatever three's company. Thank you compliment accepted. Okay. So how are we doing in our poll? Great. So the poll is all about yesterday's college of pop culture knowledge, which we play every day at ten thirty our boss specifically asks Ryan to just make the questions a little bit easier. So the Donna, and I aren't stumped as often as we sometimes can be he that Ryan do you have the question that you could ask because the the category yesterday in honor of Saint Patrick's Day was Irish actors, and this was the question what character did Liam Niessen play in Star Wars Episode one the Phantom Menace. The answer was quite gone. Jen. You remember that? I couldn't even remember the name. I'd be like something something it's only because I'm looking at it. Okay lane. Looking at the poll, which we put up on mytalk Twitter and Facebook without googling it. Do you know who quite gone Jin is sixty eight percent agreed with Donna and is saying no, we did not know that name without googling it on our Facebook page was about seventy percent there as well. So very active samples correlating right here. They really are. And so Ryan what would you like to say yesterday? You were adamant I would say that is exactly what I expect you about over one fourth of our listeners know who got Jin is. That's a pretty good number overall. And I accept your apology for doubting. So yesterday, we run you said that you were confident that you were going to win this poll. How do you feel about that? Now, I think ever said wait, I think I remember saying that it would just be indicative, and it will not be as low as you think it is. And clearly it's not over. One fourth of villas Senator Senator would you like me to do an air? Check of yesterday. When you said that you were. Yes, it was it. Yes would win. Remember that we have you on record? Mr. Senator saying that I think if you access if you pulled up yourself, Sherry, certainly please check the air here. I never said I would win saying really think that it would have been better. We would have had a fighting chance if you said who played the role of why gone gin Star Wars. Well, we could've at least guests serve the listener served them and said this is how you run a game. Now, I'm going to be finding the I'm I'm I will be incommunicado for the rest of the segment is I find this audio. Oh, am I supposed to stretch? What do you call it? What you want to call it vamping? Let me say that word. All right. Television major in college. And don't know what that word means vamp. Okay. Vamp? The I think the word that I'm looking here is to repeat a short simple passage of music. The band was vamping gently behind his busy lead. So to kinda keep things go. Okay. So I would just say stretch. Stretch. And I love that about you stretch that was actually a hand signal television production stretch or hurry up. Yeah. Which looks like the same thing as a basketball for travelling basketball signal. Okay. March madness. Hey, right. You any closer to filling out a bracket, buddy. I was thinking about you last night in bed. No, one of our loyal listeners. Jim Johnson Twitter sense me tournament challenge bracket. I haven't responded to him. But it's not. Says he wants to make Steve happens. Like, I'm not gonna do it. Here's what I thought though as I was thinking about you. I thought you know, I know. I know I know this guy, and I know that if he did it just one time years after the fourth grade scarring that happened that he would like it. He'd come in on Monday and say actually watching the game more enjoyable found myself pounding bears are cheering for dude. I'm not gonna watch a game and watch these games. No. But you would like L let me check into this game to see. Oh, cool. I'm winning. Now, I'm gonna go to Donna, what.

"Questions relating to the international pricing situation. Drug prices are much higher in the United States than in other developed countries on average forty percent higher twenty seventeen abbvie made nine point nine billion dollars in revenue outside the United States. So my first question to you is do you make a profit on the drugs that you sell in Germany or in France? Yes, we do. So if you do, and you have said that that's the case if you can turn a profit in a country with dramatically lower prices, you can do the same thing in the United States. How is that not gouging? The American consumer with high prices, even though you're giving other people in western industrialized countries. Better deal. Senator it's a great question. And the reality is, and I don't think it's just unique to add the is that prices vary dramatically around the world. There's no question at least in abbey's business for the most part, the US has some of the highest prices in the world, that's not universally drew. The government has some relatively low prices in comparison. But I think the fundamental issue is this our system is built around a variety of pricing around the world. But that overall system. Supports RND mile. If a market the size of the United States were to collapse to the lower end of that pricing model, then I can just tell you would not be able to invest the level of RND invest today. So that's the reality. I think times short as I noted in my opening statement global RND spending is far less than the revenue you make in America. American patients bring in more than enough revenue to cover your RND costs. I mean, I'm going to have town meetings in a few days at home, and people will say Ron this is ridiculous that we are getting gouged when people around the world are getting a better deal. And what you have told me today is a they are getting a better deal, and you can make profit be it is somehow tied to research and development in the fact is that research and development is less than. The revenue that you're making in this country. And that's why people are so angry. And I'd also like to note that Humira vile similar was launched in Europe last year. And dude, Abby these anticompetitive behavior in the United States that same bio similar will not be available here until twenty twenty three. You got a double standard you're willing to sit by and hose, the American consumer and give the breaks to people overseas. So I'm going to wrap up and stick to the chairs on time. Limit by asking you in writing. So that we can better understand the situation for the drugs you fell in other countries. I would like to know whether the drugs you sell in other western industrialized countries. Just the western industrialized countries. Does your company make or lose money? Can you get that to me in writing within ten days? I can give it to you right now. We make money in any country that we sell in unless we choose to donate the product into those countries, and we do do that in certain countries. I can't afford it. But not the western. I would like it in writing that. Okay. One thing. I would like to point out that I don't think it's totally accurate that you described at least for Abby is we spend five point two billion dollars in our indeed we make five point six billion dollars in earnings. So RND is almost a quivalent to what are earnings are. Well, I'm going to we'll continue that I'm gonna listen four names at a time Robertson be next and then stabbed on an Z. And then well, so if you are irradiated about how you might be on this list, take it out with one of your colleagues on the committee because I'm reading just the way the staff gave it to me. Senator roberts. Vacuous chairman timely so situation reminds me of when Mark Twain Samuel Clemens went to Missouri. That was his first mistake. And made some remarks to a small town mayor afterwards said well now, we have the tar in the feathers and a rail we'd like to ride you out of town on a rail for the honor of it. I just as soon not do that. And I think in some ways that's where you are sitting right now, I worry about the cost. I worry about the access. I worry about the value. I worry about the fact that when I go did just last night all of a sudden found that prescription I had cost twice as much. I still haven't quite figured that out. I don't know what you want to blame. But at any rate, I worry about I worry about CMS. I worry about the federal government taking over with regards to the decisions that you make. I also worry about what they're distinguished Senator from Oregon costs described as a terrified public, and certainly we don't want any any liars. I wanna ask you one simple question. Staff is arranged about seven good questions met him for the record. Under the banner of certainty and predictability. What keeps you up at night? In other words, if in fact, we invited you back, and you could come back or let me put it in another way. What would happen if he ran into some things that Ryan precedent? And you wouldn't be here. We wouldn't have the magnificent seven. If in fact, that's why I wanna w what I wanna know is what is the what is defense that keeps you up a night. So you could be liable company now in down the road to achieve what we all want in terms of access and cost and I'm going to start with Mr. Brandon cork because I want to go from right to left for a change. Thank you Senator. What keeps me up at night you speak up. Please. Sure. I think I'm on. It's to ensures that I have a pipeline of new products, which is innovative enough to aggregate, some of Zia disease burdens in the countries where we are. So it's all making. Our company meaningful in delivering what we supposed to do the best. Thank you. Mr. Senator, the reason we exist these to bring breakthroughs that chains patient's lives, and this is what keeps me up Albert Burra Pfizer. And this is the reason why our employees come to work. This reason why our investment on mass. If our pipeline will not deliver on the promise. And this is very challenging because we are dealing with very difficult diseases to crack, then we will not be able to fulfill our promise to society and will not be able to fulfill our promised investors, Mr. Frazier. Thank you for your five point plan. What say you? I would say Senator the thing that keeps seeing most up at night is the concern that we will not have a viable predictable market that will allow people to continue to put the very large amounts of money up at risk for a long period of time in an attempt to find solutions to some of the hardest problems like Alzheimer's that debated solutions. And what really concerns me is when we. Don't treat these issues as a systemic issue in public. Thanks that they have to have outrageous solutions to the problem where in the future, we won't get these drugs. So I would hope that we could talk about these things hysterically and try to come up with the kinds of solutions. That will in fact, make patients have access to medicines today while allowing tomorrow's breakthroughs to happen. Thank you, MS Taubman. This is she's been radio programming from Tuesday. Senator that the easy diseases have been have been largely Jew speak up as well. I'm sorry. Jennifer Tabart of Johnson and Johnson pharmaceuticals center, the easy diseases have largely been solved it gets harder and harder. As we go after new treatments and new cures for ever more challenging diseases. So from our perspective, what keeps me up at night is that investment in addition and the ability to continue to invest to be able to go after that the cures in the diseases that we really want to. Thank you, Mr. Caprio, pardon me, Mr. Senator issues, I am a physician as I said earlier, what keeps me up at night is our patients that still don't have an opportunity for their cancer to be treated and as a result of that. I'm really focused on first continuing to invest in R and D together with the seven thousand scientists that personae Squibb and also make sure that every patient needs one of our medicines has access to them. Mr sharia. The two things one is making sure we have the best science the best scientists environment that stimulates their innovation is really to come up with ways to demonstrate the value of our products. I believe that medicines actually part of the solution to the problem. And it said that we are talking about those difficulties patients are facing in the last fifteen years the mortality for cardiovascular diseases decline by thirty five percent. Most of this is due to good treatments for attention could is still. And in fact, it's cost effective. We compati- out of the hospital. So the one thing that really keeps me up at night is how do we demonstrate the value? We bring on how do we reduce overall healthcare cost? Michigan's amount of time Ican answer. You you ask your question. Go ahead. Thank you for being so liberal. Thank you Senator. There are two things. They keep me up in the first is we like many around the table are working on some of the toughest diseases. They're out there which take on tremendous amounts of risk. And you heard that many many times, but the reality is when we work on these diseases like Alzheimer's as an example when someone comes up with a beneficial treatment for Alzheimer's, it's going to change the lives of patients families, and it's going to reduce dramatically healthcare costs, but not necessarily the cost of medicine. The cost of medicine is going to go up the cost of nursing homes are going to go down and systems have a very difficult time trying to measure that benefit, but the reality is when you're working in these areas with these kinds of innovative diseases. That is the ultimate payback that the system has to be able to value. Senator stabbing. Thank you. Thank you very much. Mr Chairman and ranking member, and I thank you for being here. I'll tell you what keeps people in Michigan up late at night. It's the cost of saving medicine for themselves. Children their parents and sell. That's why it's important we're here.

Well, you've been at work. This is the Larry O'Connor shell or gay relationships in your opinion, immoral. The hats Corey Booker Senator from New Jersey running for president, not coincidentally. Today is part of a judicial confirmation process for one Naomi row, she of Indian descent American of Indian descent. Her parents are from India party, in fact, Hersi Indians and. She is conservative. And understandably I believe she is a believing Christian and as a faithful believing Christian or anyone who respects and acknowledges their faith if they are Jewish Christian Muslim. The vast majority of believers in this country, if they take their faith seriously and the scripture that accompanies their faith. They would acknowledge that we are all imperfect. We are all sinners, and there are a whole host a laundry list of sins detailed in both the old and the New Testaments or the Koran that define exactly what it means to be a center, and yes, one of those things would be engaging in homosexual behavior. That doesn't mean that people who do that are to be condemned or to be what bite we humans that is. They might who knows. We don't know we don't make determinations on who was going to hell only. God knows that. But it doesn't mean that we are to treat them poorly or to discard them or to give them fewer rights than others or to be mean to them or to hurt them in any way whatsoever. Nor would we do that to anyone who SIMS because we are all sinners that's sort of the tenant of our faith last. I checked. But Cory Booker. Wants to do something. That's rather unconstitutional. He actually threw his line of questioning today in the Senate Judiciary hearing wants to put some kind of religious test on whether you can be a federal judge. If you take your faith, seriously or gay relationships, in your opinion, immoral. Senator. I'm not sure, you know, the relevance of that too. I think that relevant your opinion. If you think African American relationships are immoral teething gay relationships, aren't moral you personally believe that get reaction. I do not you do not believe that. Senator my personal views on any of these subjects are things. I would put to one side, and I would faithfully not willing to say here. Whether you believe is sinful for a man to meant to be married. You're not you're not willing to comment on that. You're not willing to say here. Whether you believe it is sinful for two men to be ma-. You're not willing to say. Not only am I not willing. I would suggest with all due respect. Mr. Senator that the line of questioning goes against. Entire constitution. Stands for. This this. This is a religious to. I it's not my job that Mark constitution precludes you from asking me what I believe to be sinful or not. How dare you, sir? Have you know, shame should be the response. She has much more control of herself than I do does Naomi row. That's probably why she's in line to be a federal circuit court judge. And then there was this part, which was really delightful. Here's Cory Booker that that genius of the United States Senate. Have you ever had an LGBTQ law clerk, I've not been a judge. So I don't have any law. What about your law clerks? What about your law clerks are any of them gay? I'm not a judge. So I don't have any clerks. But then he went further, and before I continue with this line of questioning may I just point out that the federal law right now, I'm pretty sure dictates that it is illegal to actually ask the sexual preferences of a potential employees. I know around here at my place of business. I can't go around to people who work for me, or who I work with air anywhere and say, so who is it you sleep with you know, what what what what brandy asleep with you like the guys like the gals who do you who do you end up? You know, what floats your boat? You can't do that. Cory Booker hard, working someone working for you. I'm to be honest. I don't know the sexual orientation of my my staff. So I I take people as they come in respective of their.

"Margaret, you're on the air. No, thank you for taking my call. And I would agree with the previous caller. And what I would like to see happen is we do have bipartisan like Ireland. We have bipartisan support for the bills that have been put through. And so I think the people holding this up right now are Senator McConnell and president. So I would like to see Senate twit through the bills that were given to them send them off to the White House. Not create a new Bill that's going to create new anx. Let's send the thing that everybody agreed on before to the White House. It's Mr. Trump chooses not to sign them. I send it could override this. I will tell you that in Kentucky. Although it's not making it on the news. Many of Mr. Senator McConnell people are already trying to get hold them to say open the government needs to hero in this. So I would like to see the original the budget. It was green upon by all of them. The only persons owning up then is. Mr. Trump for a while he promised we wouldn't pay for we can't afford that while and most people don't want right for taking a Margaret. Thank you for your call. Well, I would like to see that. But the reality is it's not going to happen. Senator McConnell is not going to present that same Bill again. The Republican senators are not going to do that present that same Bill again. A large part of the reason why he's going to offer. This other Bill is to ineffective move away from her shake off the legacy of the Bill that they passed two weeks ago. So while I agree. It's a desirable outcome. I think it's very unlikely outcome, and you have to deal with your allies at the building going to present will represent the president's offer. Plus what ever sweeteners they can put in whatever issues they could put in to try to attract enough democratic senators to enacted. I don't think they'll succeed in that. Although it'll be. An uncomfortable vote for many Democrats Senator Mitchell, and I'm still thinking, but we what you said in the beginning of our conversation. The a step towards a successful negotiation is to broaden the issues away from you know, the single win-loss issue of the wall. Right. Enter to talk more holistically about immigration. But you know, as you noted we we saw that we went through a couple of processes a couple of negotiations last year that didn't do the did do exactly that. But those ultimately were undermined by the very hard line on legal immigration, for example, that some of the president's advisors are really pushing. So haven't we also all ready encountered, you know, the pitfalls of of widening the key the terms of negotiation too, far one of the cardinal principles negotiating difficult issues as you do don't take the I know as the last answer is a seventh. No or the seven. Eighteenth. No in Northern Ireland. I'm fond of saying we had seven hundred days of failure. And one day of success over period of years almost every day. I was asked by one or more reporters when are you leaving you have failed to get an agreement? And when are you going back to the states, and they were right up until that moment, we had failed to get an agreement, and we didn't get it until the very last the seven hundred day, persistence. Patience determination is absolutely essential in these circumstances. And you're absolutely right. We didn't that efforts were made they failed. What we have to do is learn from those failures and try again, Senator Mitchell, I have to say what you just said is the most hopeful and uplifting thing I've heard about this down in in many many weeks to remind us the seven hundred knows are just what procedures the one key. Yes. Incredible. Let's just get one. More call in here. Sean is calling from Decatur Illinois. Sean, you're on the air. Hi. How's it going today? Very well sort of by guess relatively well, but Shaun what's your thought quickly? What what my question was is if President Trump decides to use the government emergency assistance to as, you know, call it as a crisis in order to enforce the his proposal of the wall. The why would he owed the American people hostage? I'm just a small town state worker, and I'm losing my benefits because of Sean thank you for your call..

Where everyday we tell you a short story about the economy get it on NPR one or wherever you get your podcasts. This is on point Meghna Chakrabarti. We're talking about the direct effects that the government shutdown is having on eight hundred thousand federal employees, many of them contract workers who may never receive the backpay that they're missing out on now, even when the government reopens and also on the millions more Americans who rely on the services that those federal agencies provide to them. Lisa Desjardins joins us. She's a correspondent for the PBS NewsHour where she covers congress and Lisa we've actually got a really interesting question. That's come in on through Facebook to us. Amy Mollison Austin is asking can the president really keep the government shutdown for years. I can't even see Mitch McConnell standing for that. So I'm curiously. So what do you think about that? Because first of all Senator McConnell has said that he's not going to bring any continuing resolution to the floor of the Senate that doesn't that the president won't support. But he's also been very quiet over the past several days. Where's he going? Well, that's a fascinating question. Think I this quick Jamie's question can he keep government shutdown? He can keep government shutdown as long as he has more than a third of the votes in each chamber because you know, if it gets to a point where the president is digging in and he has lost especially Republicans in the Senate, which by the way, they're already very unhappy with the president when they speak to you privately. Do they can override the president? They can pass a funding Bill with two thirds votes in each chamber. So I think I think it politically it seems unlikely that it could go years because I think the president would be overridden if he digs in that deeply, but I think speaking, Mr. Senator McConnell, you know, at that news conference, one of the first things all of us standing there noticed on Friday was we were looking in the Oval Office to see who was coming. We saw Kevin McCarthy the new Republican leader in the house. We saw Steve Scalise. His deputy. We saw Mick Mulvaney. The acting chief of staff, and we did not see Mitch McConnell. The Republican leader of the Senate. I reached out to Senator McConnell's office. Now, there is no more on message Republican than Mitch McConnell. He rarely talks to reporters he has never off message. He has very disciplined, and I to my surprise received a response from them that was very direct and addressed my question directly saying why wasn't Mr. McConnell there. They said he had not been told about the availability, the preservation ability, and if he had been asked by the president to attend he would have to me to Capitol Hill reporter that was sort of earth shake that Mitch McConnell office would come out publicly and make it clear the president had not invited him. So the president is surrounding him by himself with conservatives and not by pragmatists, like Mitch McConnell at the moment, but is McConnell pragmatist on this. Because again, I just I just keep a keep rehearing him say he's not going to put anything on the floor of the Senate to vote that the president won't approve with that is also pragmatic really right now because he's already made his senators vote for. Something that the president turned his back on. So he he knows the president is unpredictable. And so he's waiting for the president to really stake out a position that is viable which has not happened yet. Okay. Pragmatism perhaps in the most cynical politically. I I've gotten that bad. I guess it has. But yes, yeah. But I do think when it comes to fiscal crises Mitch McConnell is someone who has repeatedly tried to steer the ship through rocky shores and tried to avoid. He does not like these crises is not like a debt ceiling crisis or a shutdown. He is someone who wants to avoid it and wanted to end quickly. He knows there are repercussions especially for his side in this shutdown. Okay. It's forgive me. Forgive me for tussling with you on this. Lisa. I don't quite get it here..

And not just that I go I go back to the self-serving narcissistic part of this. Mitt Romney just said the hell with all you voted for me and everyone the voters. It's listening right now the voted for Mitt Romney that put him in office. You get exactly what you deserve here. You get exactly what you deserve. You get exactly what you deserve. You voted for a guy who clearly doesn't care about you. And you gave him a title and a platform. And now what he's doing is. He's going after this president of the United States of America who should be working with. You should be working with him. If you want to get anything done for your people, any of the agenda items that you say you want to get done for your people. You should be working. With him not against him.

"mr. senator" Discussed on 600 WREC

"Oh, we're so happy that you're here. Mr. Senator Romney. We're so glad off the record mister Romney's Cinerama that you got elected. It's about time we had someone with your compass here. That's what they're saying to him. Every one of these shows that he goes on they are going to stroke his ego. In the meantime, when he walks out of the room, they're laughing at him. There's not a single show. That's having him on the spot laughing at him because they know what they're doing. They're using this guy. They're using this guy who has an are by his name which stands for Republicans to attack the president of America. And that's what they wanted. And this guy was dumb enough to do it which goes back to the point. I was making earlier you want to know why Mitt Romney got his brains beaten got a hundred electoral votes, less. Hundred electoral votes, less than Donald Trump got against Obama when he ran against them. This is why he lost because he doesn't even understand what way is up in. What way is down? You have a shutdown right now. And the American people don't want Dem's to give in to Trump on the shutdown is what Chuck Schumer said today, you're aiding and abetting the Democrats by putting this out there. You're aiding and abetting the Democrats by doing this.
