What the Democrats' 2022 Election Spending Tells Us

"The political cognitive shanty the insiders have already begun to read the tea leaves on the 2022 election. And one of the journals that is very good in doing this is the national journal. When I was in D.C. many years ago, national journal was mandatory reading, I'm not so much into the inside baseball of day to today politics, so I don't read it anymore, but I spotted an interesting article online Josh crush hour writing about how the Democrats had the Democrats are thinking about the 2022 election. And what crush hour does is he looks at one of the biggest democratic super PACS, which is putting a $100 million into the Democratic Party for the 2022 election. And but the interesting question is, how are they spending and where are they spending? Because when they put a lot of money on a race, it tells you something. It tells you that they know something about that race and this is why they're spending a lot to fight it out. So crush are actually begins by talking about Las Vegas. And he's talking about the city of Las Vegas. Now, the Democrats just did some redistricting in Nevada. And you would think that as a result of the redistricting, they would have protected the three urban seats in Las Vegas. And those seats would be safe. So you wouldn't need to spend a whole lot of money on them, but no, out of the $100 million 11.6 million is going to try to protect three democratic incumbents in inner city Las Vegas and what this means is that the Democrats are worried that Dina Titus Lee and Steven horsford are all going to be swept out of office. This is in a place that Joe Biden won well he won Nevada, but he also won Las Vegas and but he won it closely. And so the point is that this is a sign that the Democrats are not looking good. Even in places where they should be, I should be

"Join out by hotline jawsh crush hour with national journal. Josh, I'm sure you're following judge Brown Jackson's hearing. There is no doubt in my mind she'll be confirmed. And John cornyn just said that. Do you agree with that? Yeah, and I think she's done quite well so far in her introductory statement to the committee yesterday. I think Democrats have handled the nomination as well as to be expected so far. And look, I think you're going to be a few Republicans at least as Colin. I think is likely to support her. I wouldn't be surprised if a couple more Republican senators, if the hearings and if her testimony, the committee here and say, to mark a well. I expect actually more than a few. But I could be wrong. I put the over under at 65. I don't see any reason to vote against her.

Using Minimal Effective Dose to Maintain Your Strength, Endurance, and Muscle Size

"Got one other for you before we open it up to this week's q. In this was in the national journal strength conditioning research and kind of related to what. I was just talking about but rather than maintenance of weight loss. This one looked into maintenance of muscle maintenance of muscle and so the title of this particular study was the minimal dose of exercise so for all time hackers. Hopefully your your your ears perked when you heard that the minimal those of exercise needed to preserve endurance and strength over time. So what these folks looked into was all the different studies. This is a narrative review. They looked at all the different studies out there. That show you know once you once you've kind of gotten the body you want or the muscle you want gotten to the state of fat loss or fat loss maintenance that you want. How do you continue that over time. And there are some really really good practical applications in this particular study. This wouldn't necessarily be to improve performance but this would be to maintain performance. And it's less than what you would think like if you're as fit as you want to be but you wanna maintain that. Let me give you a few examples. So let's say short term endurance. So so you wanna maintain your fitness for for short-term darts usually be like playing sports tennis soccer basketball etc. It would appear that you can do about thirteen minutes per session at around two sessions per week at around sixty to eighty percent intensity and actually maintain your short term endurance very effectively for a long duration of time for long term endurance. Right like being able to go for long periods of time such as you might have accomplished after running a marathon or triathlon. Or something like that. Basically for that you can get away with about twenty five to thirty minutes per session okay. Twenty five to thirty minutes per session as long as you're maintaining his high in exercise intensity as possible during that steady state. Twenty five to thirty minute session. Who is shockingly low like. Let's say you've gotten yourself being like ride a bike for sixty miles and then you just wanna maintain that because you're going into work mode and you've got like eight weeks where you know. You got trained that much. You can literally maintain that with twenty five to thirty minutes for a session and in this case again. We're talking about a couple of times a week two times per week for video to match what your maximum oxygen capacity again if you can maintain your maximum sustainable pace and this was very similar for about thirteen to fifteen minutes at around one session per week. That's enough you to maintain your view to max.

U.S. Senators Reach Deal on Infrastructure Framework

"Bipartisan infrastructure discussion going on in the Senate, Utah Republican Mitt Romney spoke to reporters before leaving the capital Tonight. The Republicans and Democrats have come together along with the White House, and we've agreed on a framework and we're going to be heading to the White House tomorrow, the group of 10 senators reach an agreement on the framework for an infrastructure package that includes roughly the same amount of new spending over 559 billion Dollars for a total of more than 970 billion over five years or 1.2 trillion over eight years. The White House press secretary says the group made progress water an outline of a potential agreement, and the president has invited this group now to come to the White House tomorrow. National Journal editor in chief Jeff Do four joined us earlier and says that if the bill passes through the Senate, it could be faced with the struggle of bipartisan support from House members. Once they get this through this Senate. It would be a huge bipartisan win for Biden. But then they face the task of assembling the same type of bipartisan coalition in the house, where the extremes tend to be much more vociferous, much more intractable in their positions. You know, there's a lot more of them. There are a lot more hardcore conservatives and a lot more hardcore Progressive House. Assembling a true kind of centers coalition tend to be much harder there now. Senate Democratic

Editor-in-chief of the National Journal, Jeff Dufour, Discusses Manchin's Role in Senate Negotiations

"Let's go live now, with an update on Skype to Jeff Do. Four editor in chief of National Journal. Jeff in the plainest language possible. What did mansion get that caused him to change his mind and end this Well in the context of a $1.9 trillion bill. Uh, not much. These air presents pretty small provision that took nine hours. The final deal essentially is $300 per week of federal unemployment assistance through the end of August, the house had wanted 400. Said. It's bringing it down to 300. It was originally supposed to expire at the end of September. Now it's going to expire at the end of August. Essentially now one of mansions things was he wanted Tonto. To exempt the taxi. You want to accept the tax exemptions from this two households making over $150,000 a year so currently, if you get these jobless benefits, you can deduct tow up to 10,000 of that from from your taxes. He said. That shouldn't apply. If you make more than 100 $50,000 a year in your household, and it appears the Senate is going to agree to that now, the votes technically still open, even though they supposedly have a deal. I mean time wise. A lot was made out of Senator Ron Johnson last night, forcing the clerk to read the entire bill, which took hours. But this one vote on one Amendment has now taken longer than that did last night. And this is the first vote in what they billed as a vote A Rama quote unquote to come. So they're in for a lot of overtime in the Senate this weekend, the Senate record as you mentioned for longest vote has been broken again because all of this the previous record was from back in 2019. Is this something like the longest vote a sign of serious dysfunction on the hill? Or is it a sign of something else? I don't know The dysfunction is any greater than it has been in years past, which is still pretty significant, But it's combining that dysfunction with a 50 50 senate. I think I think we know a couple things now going forward Number one. This bill is probably going to go to the house like this weekend. Like you said, we're barring anything else on foreseen. They're gonna sense that the president for his signature, it's gonna give Biden his first big victory as president. But maybe more importantly, we know now that any significant legislation like this is going to be a real slaughter and a real challenge to pass vote Counting is critical. And there's all kinds of procedural hurdles that a senator, One senator can throw in the way in a 50 50 Senate now that applies to three bills at the House passed this past week that high up on their agenda. The voting rights package. The George Floyd policing reform and extending civil rights toe LGBT Q Americans, It's going to apply the unorganized labor bill and and gun legislation that they hope to pass this week. Those five just to name a few are all going to need 60 votes in the Senate. And if I were a betting man, I'd say they're not going to get it for most of them. President Biden, who you could almost jokingly say it's still a senator. He's you know, inextricably linked to the U. S. Senate, he called mansion directly. One wonders whether this deal could have been done without the president's efforts. And some people, I suppose, would be encouraged to see that he's getting involved. Others would say, Man, it's a bad sign that the president has to get directly involved like that. And I would also say this is probably not going to be the last conversation that by the mansion have during this Congress, because, uh, mansion is for people who count these things. Mansion is the most centrist member of the entire Senate. He is the swing vote. In the Democratic caucus, and he's the most important vote in the Senate right now, and he knows it. He's gonna exact every bit of power he can out of this toe, get what he wants for his state and for his And just for his for his views to make sure that whatever passes the Senate reflects his

It was a product of Trump, telling them over and over for two months that the election has been stolen and that they'd have to take it back if they wanted to win. There was also an emphasis on Trump's unwillingness to call the mob off at the time it was happening even as members of his own party begged him to do so. And then, finally, there was a nemesis on his statements afterward, notably him, saying, Twitter that this is a day that will be long remembered.

"Dickinson read An excerpt from Shirley Chisholm is memoir on Box and on Bost. American idea of going on the campaign trail has evolved over time. Today, we might conjure images of candidates eating fried foods at the Iowa State Fair or making gaffes in Michigan. But believe it or not. In the early 19th century, we didn't have airplanes or Twitter. Not to mention Iowa or Michigan. Back then the whistle stop tour was just taking shape and the breathless sort of journalistic coverage we enjoy now just wasn't possible. Give you a sense of how far things have come in terms of coverage and the tone of that coverage. Let's revisit the contentious campaign of 18 28, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson engaged in a bruising contest full of accusations of bigamy, cannibalism. And worse, broadsides were more likely than objective reporting, and the press often felt like partisan propaganda. The following are excerpts from the pro Adam's newspaper National Journal on the pro Jackson Telegraph. Deal with one of the tamer accusations of the day. And Andrew Jackson was nearly illiterate. The National journal. Mr Adams is a scholar. Is he to be superseded by a man of no education? Mr. Adams is a state Smith. Is he to give way to a mere soldier? Mr Adams has been bred in the Cabinet or in the school were national laws and interests are objects of study. Is he Make room for a man bread in the camp experienced only in civil Broyles and who has resigned every civil appointment on account of his admitted incompetency to fill it. I imagine that was written by an angry, judgmental mustache. And this is the telegraph. History abound, with splendid examples of men remarkable for great qualities who could not even read their own language, much less write it with accuracy but to argue against the presumption of General Jackson's fitness for the presidency because he cannot spell his absurd. We care. Not if you spell Congress with the K. He may not withstanding, understand the rights and duties of that body or of the people or himself as well as if he spelled it correctly. And that presumably was written by a sentient hickory stick. So maybe journalists do a bit more of Journalism on the trail these days. Still, as you can hear, some arguments about a candidate's fitness for office have remained pretty much the same. It's too bad because if we could agree on a basic presidential spelling test Primary season could be a lot shorter. When we return hundreds, Thompson.

"Of dollars for vaccine distribution and development. Money for health care, child care providers. Schools posts also service, the public transit systems, small businesses while entertainment venues I could go on and on, but this is a major major agreement that they've reached in Congress should be able to get it out the door. By the end of the day. There's been a stalemate from months and it took until Sunday to finalize this. Why now? There's a couple of different factors. I think one is in the lame duck session. You sort of have a couple of different competing deadlines. That sort of actually worked together one of the end of the congress itself, where they have to get everything out the door, a number of division that sort of need, and I'm the best store or a vehicle on which that that stuff wides. The end of the election, at least the presidency and for the House sort of let 1000 steam release in pressure valves that allows for some cooperation between leaders or between members of each party. And then the each party ended up giving a good chunk in order to get this passed. Democrats obviously are going to be supporting a package that's much smaller than what they had supported. It's the quarterbacks really package at least totals about mantra billion dollars, which is much less than what was in the heroes that that was passed by the House. Um and even the new money, for it is only something that turns to be billion dollars. Mostly money for this new coronavirus. Relief is reprogrammed 20 from the cares act that was never spent. So it appeases fiscal conservatives in the Senate Republican Conference as well, but it also Was helpful that Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell he had earlier in the year put on a Red line said We're not gonna put any bill on the floor. It doesn't include liability protections for businesses, healthcare providers and schools that are trying to operate during the pandemic, and that was one thing that they left out of this package as a way to get an agreement. We're talking with that Cohen of National Journal build is going to pass overwhelmingly in the House and Senate. But there is some opposition. Who are they and what are they opposed to? Yeah, I do. Expect both Chambers will pass this with very large bipartisan margins, but it won't be unanimous to Senator Rand. Paul from Kentucky, has already said that he's going to oppose it because he's concerned about the impact on the national debt. Not just in the cupboard really fell. But for the annual government funding bill is well on Ben. You'll have progress is on the house in the house that are in the Senate, who believe that the second ballot checks they're gonna be going out. Sort of. The better item on this package isn't Sufficient nor the help working class families, whether the economic pandemic that has really been coupled with the health care one so certainly members of both parties on on both sides of the political island of venom. Both Poles will oppose this, but I anticipate that large majorities, especially with the help of moderates, people that are pre election 2022. Theme. The Georgia Senators that are up for re election. There's gonna be a lot of pressure to vote for this bill on did not stand the way certainly procedurally of getting it done. You know if they oppose it, you mentioned that this is one of the last bills to make it into law. And it becomes a vehicle for other bills. That kind of need to hit your ride. Do we know what other issues got thrown into this bill? I'm still waiting through it, but I know there are provisions that, for instance, create new Smithsonian museums for the history of women and Latinos. Two separate museums, which is something that the House and the Senate had tried to pass on its own, but was blocked in the Senate by Republican Senator Mike Lee. And so that was included in this. There's um something I think I've read somewhere regulating upholstery. They'll be any number of things. Um Of racehorse regulations, I think is a perennial favorite of Mitch McConnell than it did in and so I think people really reading through this bill for days and weeks to come and certainly anomalies they're going to come up that we didn't know about many lawmakers who are voting on it didn't know about, but this is this is eerily similar to the passage of the cares Act, which was similarly sort of put together behind closed doors released. And put the rank and file lawmakers say, Hey, you know, take it or leave it and so and I anticipate that many parts of this package will be underway to coronavirus unrelated to sort of the normal functioning of government but ends up being a vehicle for a lot of other lawmakers priorities.

It's no coincidence that this happened late in the day today, after a few other things that already happened, namely that Michigan's canvassing board officially declared Biden the winner there. There was a lot of pressure actually put on the GOP members of that board. To push for further delay so that an audit could take place That obviously didn't happen. So Biden has Michigan's 16 electoral votes officially on, You also had form or Republican senators today acknowledged that Biden won and pressed for the release of these transition funds, and I would add as a third thing. Trump's losses in courtrooms around the country just continue to pile up. Azi tries to contest the election results, so it doesn't really seem to be any sort of a path forward for for the president any longer, And I think the political pressure was just becoming too great on I'm Emily Murphy, the head of the G s a now she said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the transition process. Why do you think she felt it necessary to write that we can't climb into her head? Obviously, I think the Republican senators had a lot to do with that. You had some Some pretty hard line conservative senators like Shelley Moore Capito from West Virginia coming out and saying, Look, the election didn't go the way that we wanted it to. But it seems obvious that Joe Biden has his one barring anything crazy that we that we haven't seen yet. So given that these these funds really need to be released, it's about.

Takeaways from the last presidential debate of 2020

"See Red states and blue states. What I see is American United States. Look, nobody knew what this thing was. Nobody knew where it was coming from what it was. We've learned a lot. The final presidential debate behind us now, about a week and a half away from the election of dozen days, really, or less. National Journal editor in Chief Jeff to four is with US. Live on Skype, Jeff. One thing we can say right out of the box. One does not come away from this exchange. With that throbbing headache. It was civil. You could follow the subject matter at least did that help either candidate, particularly that the temperature was far lower tonight? I think it still felt like like a bit of a draw to me. Just a lower temperature draw the last time you're right. I think if you if you beamed in here from 1992, it still would have seemed recognizable as a presidential debate. Starting even with the first segment they had on Corona virus strategy. They had some some back and forth, but it was pretty civil. We can list off the topics they discussed. Corona virus, immigration, health foreign policy. Our race with the last one, Can you even? Ah, Can you even remember what they discussed? And in what order? I'm not sure I can, and we talked about it for five minutes on air. What exchange? Did you find? Most interesting. Well, I I thought that the initial exchange on Corona virus really encapsulated What the what The knight was, If that's all you watched, you probably came out with a good sense of things. Trump said again, he said, this dozens of times it's going to go away. We're turning the corner. And he's saying this. As this week cases, air spiking and deaths are spiking again, just about everywhere. So it's just does not comport with the reality on the ground right now. The other moment that I think people are really going to seize on is when things turned to immigration and race, Trump Really held it together until then, for about an hour, And then, about an hour in they went to immigration. He again referred to murderers and rapists coming across the border from Mexico. And then he said, the only immigrants who show up for their hearings of the ones with quote really low IQ's So it was. It was a cringe inducing moment. And then on top of that they went to race, and he tried to say yet again that he's been the best president for Black Americans. Since maybe since Abraham Lincoln, which is Did overheated rhetoric to say the least. I'm not equivocating here. Anything that you've just said to now, Let's find out what Joe Biden did wrong. But I did notice, some stumbling, some stammering from Biden. That is an issue with him at debates. What were some of his weaker moments? It is. I mean, Trump wasn't there to interrupt him, But he interrupted himself more than more than a few times hey, tends to get caught up in his words loses his train of thought a little bit, especially when it came back to bite him, especially when he was trying to explain his health care plan.

Trump and Biden Clash in Sharp Exchanges, But More Civil Tones

"States and blue states. What I see is American United States. Look, nobody knew what this thing was. Nobody knew where it was coming from what it was. We've learned a lot. The final presidential debate behind us now, about a week and a half away from the election of dozen days, really, or less. National Journal editor in Chief Jeff to four is with US. Live on Skype, Jeff. One thing we can say right out of the box. One does not come away from this exchange. With that throbbing headache. It was civil. You could follow the subject matter at least did that help either candidate, particularly that the temperature was far lower tonight? I think it still felt like like a bit of a draw to me. Just a lower temperature draw the last time you're right. I think if you if you beamed in here from 1992, it still would have seemed recognizable as a presidential debate. Starting even with the first segment they had on Corona virus strategy. They had some some back and forth, but it was pretty civil. We can list off the topics they discussed. Corona virus, immigration, health foreign policy. Our race with the last one, Can you even? Ah, Can you even remember what they discussed? And in what order? I'm not sure I can, and we talked about it for five minutes on air. What exchange? Did you find? Most interesting. Well, I I thought that the initial exchange on Corona virus really encapsulated What the what The knight was, If that's all you watched, you probably came out with a good sense of things. Trump said again, he said, this dozens of times it's going to go away. We're turning the corner. And he's saying this. As this week cases, air spiking and deaths are spiking again, just about everywhere. So it's just does not comport with the reality on the ground right now. The other moment that I think people are really going to seize on is when things turned to immigration and race, Trump Really held it together until then, for about an hour, And then, about an hour in they went to immigration. He again referred to murderers and rapists coming across the border from Mexico. And then he said, the only immigrants who show up for their hearings of the ones with quote really low IQ's So it was. It was a cringe inducing moment. And then on top of that they went to race, and he tried to say yet again that he's been the best president for Black Americans. Since maybe since Abraham Lincoln, which is Did overheated rhetoric to say the least. I'm not equivocating here. Anything that you've just said to now, Let's find out what Joe Biden did wrong. But I did notice, some stumbling, some stammering from Biden. That is an issue with him at debates. What were some of his weaker moments? It is. I mean, Trump wasn't there to interrupt him, But he interrupted himself more than more than a few times hey, tends to get caught up in his words loses his train of thought a little bit, especially when it came back to bite him, especially when he was trying to explain his health care plan. He did very, very well going at Trump about Trump's lack of a plan. But then, when he was called on to explain his own plan, it was it was hard to follow. Even for anybody who's been in that issue, much less for for a voter in their living room. Who's just coming to this issue right now? And what about the issue of Hunter Biden this laptop? We are trying to emphasize to callers to our newsroom that this New York Post story is full of red flags.

Norah ODonnell, anchor of the CBS Evening News

"Today O'Donnell joins us on skin from the couch. She is the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, making her the third woman ever to so anger, a network evening broadcasts before taking the helm of the evening news. She was the CO host of CBS this morning for seven years norad. Thank you for joining us welcome skin from the couch. Thank you for having me, so we're GONNA. Start off with Skim your resume for us. Will I went to Georgetown University I was Law Sophy Major? I was interested in a lot of different things in college so I had internships at always worked and worked at a law firm I. worked at the World Bank, and and then I injured ABC News and I think you know journalism really was what was the right fit for me? Just a deep curiosity about the news, deep curiosity about world events and people have to graduating from college I got a job at National Journal on a publication, a called the hotline, which was the original kind of aggregate her of news before the Huffington. Post and others got into the business of aggregating news. Even like you guys in some way, remember it well, and that also was like a crash course in politics, too, because we would. Sum Up every Senate and House race across the country, all the polling who all the key consultants were, so that really was a great crash course in politics, and then I got hired at NBC and MSNBC when I was twenty five years old to be you know it was one of the youngest correspondents at NBC history, and had a great career at NBC and had three kids, and then we all work on intelligent news underwear like personal services contracts. All of us have anywhere from two to five year contracts. In, so you know in each of those contracts, come up! You have an opportunity to reevaluate your next step and CBS came to me with an incredible offer to be. The chief White House correspondent for Obama's last term, and to be the substitute anchor for face, the nation, and I had always been ambitious about wanting to anchor a Sunday broadcast I love politics, and so to be able to substitute for the legendary Bob Schieffer at thought. This is really an an excellent opportunity, so. and. CBS. News and then Kinda. The rest is history should I keep going? No, that was perfect so something you definitely don't know I. and turned at MVP when I was nineteen in the specials unit, and I was like my first week on the internships. Let's say day two or three in you opt into the office. And you're the first professional famous news anchor I ever seen in person and I literally I stopped breathing I was so excited all I wanted to do is to be a news anchor at the time, and I was so nervous, and when you walked out of the room I asked one of the producers. What is she liked you work with her I will never. Never forget their like she's the best of the best, and I was like what makes her so good. And they said that she always does her homework and I think about that a lot and I'm curious. What is something that you your fans and people like us your big fans? What does the thing that we don't know about you that we can't Google? What I wasn't as good about doing my homework in college. And I did just fine at Georgetown. But I do I think certainly a professional that is dry. Always did know my homework because I do believe that preparation builds confidence and confidence build success, and so for me, you know certainly early on my career as a young correspondent with so many famous people at NBC legendary careers. My confidence wasn't a tie, and so I thought how can I be the smartest person in the room and no more than anybody else and. You know I just really did my homework. I really worked really hard to make sure I knew everything. The thing that people may not know about me. You Know I. Guess would be that I'm from a military family. You know I mean that certainly is my resume, but it's the one thing I mentioned because you know I remember in covering certainly the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after nine eleven, a lot of people would say on television and Mike Barnicle on morning. Joe would say this a lot that Oh, no less than one percent of people have someone in the military who didn't understand these wars, but I grew up in the military. My father was drafted during the Vietnam War. State for thirty years I lived overseas and so I really do have a deep appreciation for those who serve my sister-in-law surgeon in the army and so I do have a really keen sense of the sacrifice that many people go through, and I do in some ways I almost wish that it was mandatory almost like in Israel that we had to sir because. I think you know certainly the discipline that they have is unlike anything I've seen those who sir. Let's actually start with that because I think it's fascinating talking about how you grew up and living overseas. How did this love of news and growing up with that military background kind of come together for you? You know I think one of the. First crystallized for me in some ways when Elena, Nachman Ost, who is still the vice president of talent at NBC? News said to me when I met her. When I was twenty five years old, and she said you know we like hiring correspondents who have from a military background, because they're very flexible and adaptable. They don't complain about being sent to different cities or states or around. Around the world they can talk to anybody because they've sort of been put in that situation where they have to be totally adaptable. Moment's notice

Young Republicans: The new climate activists? Maybe.

Young Republicans: The new climate activists? Maybe.

"Know the polling says young Republicans want climate action. But it's the public shift from party leaders that I just find hard to believe. The Republicans have ridiculed climate science installed climate action for more than a decade. Do you believe these new messages from party leaders for real yes definitely. I think this is real. The question is to what effect clearly something new is happening. I've had a number of conversations with folks who work on the hill who all say the same thing that Republicans are talking really differently about this issue behind closed doors fewer and fewer of them are rejecting the science. And they're feeling real public pressure to talk about it. We're GONNA hear about why later on in the show and now this is playing out publicly. So you've got Republican leadership saying they're gonNA put together this package of bills to address emissions and there is of course a lot of skepticism which you address but there's no doubt there's a shift happening both in private and in public. Yeah you know. I've got some strong feelings on on this which I'm happy to share. But first let's hear from a reporter. Who spent a lot of time figuring out what's up with? Republicans on the issue of climate. Change Amy harder is a climate and energy reporter with axios. She's been covering the issue for well over a decade at the National Journal Than The Wall Street Journal and now at Axios. She broke the story of the new Republican climate. Push and our co host. Jeff Nesbit sat down with amy to unpack it so it it does feel like there has been a shift. I mean you know you talk to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. He says that he has private conversations with Republican. Senators all the but there's been a public shift for Republicans On climate fairly recently. Are you seeing that in your reporting? Well we're starting to see them. I've described it as coming back in from the cold because this isn't where the Republican Party has always been so you're seeing them number one acknowledge that climate change is a real problem That deserves some sort of response now. There's a huge debate about how big that response should be. But in general You're not seeing comments from lawmakers particularly in the House that are really out there on left field when it comes to the science. I recently sat down with three top. Republicans House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Congressman Graves of Louisiana. I'm in Congressman Westerman A Republican from Arkansas Ed. There was this interesting Exchange Between Westerman and graves when Western said something that didn't really fit with the scientific consensus of climate change. I immediately saw graves jump in and clarify so. There is a very acute concern within the Republican Party. That at the very least they don't want to fight the science and this is of course a long ways away from where Democrats and a lot of the public and corporations are but nonetheless it is a shift to stop fighting the science. So let's let's let's dive into that a little bit. What's in those new proposals from some of the house? Republicans I would say there's three main components of the Republicans plan which is to be introduced over the coming weeks and months the first one has to do with capturing carbon emissions from variety of sources. So that can be by planting more trees in in theory that would capture more carbon the other tube Parts of this plan include a ramping up clean. Energy Technologies and clean energy technology exports so giving special tax treatment to companies that export clean energy important here to note that the definition of clean energy is of course very much in the eye of the beholder. Republicans are in Wide Agreement. That NATURAL GAS. Which is the cleanest burning fossil fuel but still very much a fossil fuel with the climate impact? That counts is clean energy so expediting pipelines for example to move natural gas as part of their clean energy plan. Which a lot of Democrats and many in environmentalists would take issue with and then the third pillar is actually not directly related to climate change but more focused on plastic pollution And so this would give foreign aid to countries in Asia and Africa which is actually where most of the most polluted rivers are with plastic. The climate angle is that oil natural gas at the bedrock aplastic. So there's that connection So those those are the three main components and I've pressed McCarthy in Western and graves on this asking them if they have some sort of goal reduction goal of emissions at they hope to achieve the the answer to that is no that they sort of reject. This idea graves used the term arbitrary targets. I think most experts say having some sort of goal is good for trying to achieve any sort of outcome. I think time will tell. The devil is in the details to see if they can really say that they'll be any sort of concrete reduction of emissions with these policies. Which is of course the whole goal. So what so? What are you seeing learning behind the scenes that that that might explain? What's driving this chain change? Why is this happening now? I think one really compelling arguments that Republicans are being receptive to. Is this idea of course that it all comes down to politics that they've been given a polling that shows younger. Republican voters are really not liking. How their leaders are disavowing? The science they want their Republican leaders to at the very least acknowledged the science and put forward a range of relatively moderate policies. And so I think that's really driving them and and people often say they're just doing this for political purposes and that seems like a throwaway line but in fact compared to where we were a decade ago. I think it's quite significant. That Republicans see climate has not acting on climate change as a political liability. And that's an incredibly important shifts because the politics do need to shift when it comes to climate change if there's ever going to be big policy so what's what's the reaction to these proposals I within the Republican caucus but then also among their colleagues on the democratic side. Stephanie been all over the map. You have some environmentalists and Democrats that think that this is just another way to deny science another way to keep stonewalling big action and then you have other Democrats. I think con- Congressman. Paul Tonko is a good example Democrat from New York. They see this movement as not enough but definitely better than nothing and a big shift from a few years ago. I interviewed Jason Grandma. The president of the bipartisan Policy Center. Who has been integral in a lot of these debates and while he described the big emphasis on trees as quote aggressive gardening he also applauded the Republicans for making this shift. What Jason Grandma also said is that Democrats environmentalists should not chide these Republicans for not doing enough yet because it's a process and although it certainly not moving fast enough for some for some critics that it's certainly moving so what what is climate looked like as a voting issue in two thousand twenty and beyond and will that have an impact on the Republican. Party's outlook on this issue. So I posted a question recently to Frank Luntz. Many people may know him as Well known Republican pollster so. I posed the question to him about are these Republican policies about trees and plastic and clean energy technologies. Is that going to be enough to convince voters? And he says while trees are great. Voters are going to want more and I'll be interested to see if that's the case. I think you'll have a positive impact from not denying the science but I think as climate change becomes a worse problem. I do think there'll be a call to do more however also note that so far to date. We have not seen voters around the world support big climate policies. And so. That's what I've called the big climate disconnect and. I think that's something that's an open question. Voters say. They're concerned about climate change. But do they really support the big policies? That would actually make a difference and I think the answer to that is is. We don't know

"Glad you're with us welcome into thursday the political cross currents that defined the two thousand sixteen presidential election are in overdrive once again for the upcoming midterms as josh kraushaar at national journal says that's working class white voters swinging towards president trump while upscale suburbanites defect from the gop coalition he says this november election will feature radically different types of campaigns for control of the two congressional chambers want a very winnable democratic battle for the gop leaning suburbs and the house versus the treacherous task democratic senators face wooing trump voters in conservative states to have a shot at taking the senate josh set this up two different battlegrounds for the house and the senate the lion's share of seats that republicans are defending in the house are in suburban affluent congressional districts that republicans hold where donald trump is not very popular at all and some districts he's downright toxic but in the map for the senate it's a whole lot different not only are the states that are the big battlegrounds in very republican areas you know montana west virginia missouri north dakota among them but they're also very working class very hump states these are not business friendly states as much as they are populist republican states so when you look at the polling and when you look at the way the campaigns have been run a lot of republicans actually think trump is the key to them winning even more seats in the senate even though either toxic as he is and many of these same house races so democrats are looking in pretty darn strong position in taking back the house i would say it's more likely than not at this point but the mood for republican senators has gotten a lot better lately and you're seen some increased optimism that republicans can pick up a seat or two of the senate.
