Fresh update on "pat toomey" discussed on Balance of Power

"This is balance and power with David Weston. Russia realizes that it's been further isolated and ostracized as a result of what it's doing in Ukraine. I'm still in the category that thinks that our withdrawal from the trans Pacific partnership was a serious strateg where the world of politics meets the world of business. Across the board, all colleges need some accountability. It's not just a few bad actors. This is a fed committed to restoring price stability, even if that causes pain. Balance of power with given Weston on Bloomberg radio. Coming up this hour, I talk with Florida senator Rick Scott about the deadline to fund the government. His view on inflation, and what's at stake in the Georgia runoff election. Plus, the World Bank seeks to play a bigger role on climate change. I'll talk about it with the World Bank president David malpass, and I'll get his views on the prospects for a global recession. And I talk with Pennsylvania senator pat toomey about his greatest accomplishments as he leaves Congress, and what still needs to be done. But first, in November, U.S. employers added 263,000 jobs. That's at least 63,000 more than we expected, and wages went up the most in nearly a year. President Biden celebrating the numbers at The White House said that it proves the country is moving in the right direction. Wages for working families. In fact, over the last couple of months have gone up. Up these wage increases are larger than the increase in inflation during that same period of time. And so we're in a position now where things are moving. They're moving in the right direction. For more on The White House reaction, I spoke with gene sperling, senior adviser to President Biden. Mister sperling served as the director of the national economic council under both president Clinton and president Obama. This did have a little bit of a Goldilocks feel, right? I mean, growth gets revised up. Where jobs are still strong. We're real incomes up. And yet at the same time, you seem gas prices go down under $3 and

"It is a technology that I think that the framers of the constitution would very much support. I guess my last question for you as we close here, senators, how can crypto people who are maybe jaded by the politics of things they see in Washington? How can they make their voice heard? How can they get involved in the process? Many of them feel sort of powerless, but what can they do to support efforts towards good legislation in D.C. to make sure that we don't miss out on this? So I would say that there is a very significant number of members of the House. Members of the Senate who don't know a lot about this space don't actually have a well defined set of views, but they're open minded. They need an education. And it's much better if people who actually know what they're doing because they're active in this space, provide that education rather than if it all comes from whatever they read on the front page of the daily paper, which of course is going to be the FDX blow up. So don't underestimate your ability to have an influence, especially with something as new to members of Congress as this space is. Reach out, sit down with the staff that handles this. Most of them will take a meeting with you. If you're a constituent. So look up your member of Congress. And go have a meeting. You'll meet with their staff most likely. But you may find that the staff is actually pretty well informed. You may find that they don't know anything about it. But engage, right? And if you are seeing as a knowledgeable person who is trusted to be a straight shooter, you'll be surprised how quickly people will start to seek your input. That's what happens in this space. So engage, engage with your members of Congress. Good thought to end with engage in the political process as well as we are evaluating crypto to senator to me. Thank you so much for your time. We appreciate you coming on bank list. All right. Thanks for having me, guys. All right, keep fighting. All right, we'll do.

"What I think we really need to do, let's start with stablecoins. Stablecoins are a discrete category. They're relatively easy to understand. I've got a framework out there that's very similar to the framework that Cynthia lummis and Kirsten gillibrand came up with. If we could get something done on stablecoins, that would be like this huge step forward. I think it would be extremely encouraging. It wouldn't by itself solve all the problems. We still have the issue of how you decide what's a security and what's not a security. But if we could, if we could resolve the question of who can issue stablecoins under what conditions, how is it regulated? I think that would be very, very constructive. Be a great first step. And then, hey, after that, you know, we take on the next challenge. How close do you think we are to doing something like that? I'm hoping that I'm quite close to announcing a bipartisan stablecoin Bill. Getting it across the goal line this year will still be very difficult. I'm not going to not going to get you. I think we could get to a. Introducing a bill that has a bipartisan list of co sponsors and that's a huge step in the right direction. The house was trying to negotiate something between Maxine waters and Patrick mchenry, the chair and ranking member, respectively on our counterpart committee in the House. They really were able to quite get there. If we could get a bipartisan product that dealt with this, it put a lot of pressure on the administration to come to the table and get this resolved. And the administration, I will say in fairness, some in the administration understand that we really should do this. We really need to get it done. The question is, can we get them to a place where they'll do it in a fashion that allows the space to thrive as opposed to be stifled? I think that's very important. And that's kind of key, right? Which is a reason I think we like stablecoin regulation as a starting point is because at least when you're talking about the centralized stablecoins, stablecoin, USD C from coinbase and circle, right? These are very kind of known quantities. These are centralized products. In order to do that in a way that doesn't stifle innovation of some of the things that we're building in DeFi. We interestingly enough, it was revealed that SPF was that same bank with freed behind FTX. It was very involved in some of the legislation behind the proposed legislation of the D.C. CPA. And some of that felt to the crypto industry, the crypto community, like there was sort of a pulling up the ladder, an entrenchment of regulatory capture entrenchment of a larger institutions now to FTX had become an institution, these banks, and kind of push against DeFi. So making certain things into centralized finance, illegal, making all front ends of decentralized finance.

"Do we know anything about that? And how do the different various committees talk about crypto legislation? What are you seeing from your perspective on the legislative front? Well, there's a lot to try to unpack there. Part of the challenge is that the Senate is not functioning the way the Senate should be functioning the way the Senate actually functioned when I first got to the Senate, which is not like different century or anything. So the committee process isn't working well. The way it should work is if there's committees that have overlapping or tangential or related jurisdiction, they should each produce relevant legislation and then you work out the differences. You put that on the Senate floor. You have a big debate. You have amendments, and something passes. And meanwhile, the House should be doing the same thing. Now you've got two different products and you have a conference where you iron out the differences. And you end up with a single product that is the consensus that you can achieve through the conference, and then you take that product back to both chambers for an up or down vote. That's the way that's the textbook way that it's supposed to work. That is the way that it used to work, including when I first got to the Senate, but it's not working that way now. So unfortunately, we've devolved to a situation where what happens is, so you could take my legislation to fix the broker definition in that came out of the infrastructure Bill from a year and a half ago where you could take my stablecoin Bill. I look to find a Democrat counterpart who is going to be a champion on their side. I act as the champion on my side. We try to get broad buy in, and then we get the key players who are the gatekeepers for extraneous legislation going into a must pass Bill, of which we have three or four typically every year. And this is a very opaque process, which is part of what's so bad about it. But that's what we're left with at this point. And frankly, I'm going to use that process to the maximum extent I can for some of my crypto priorities in the years not over yet. We still have a shot at getting some of them done this way. But it shouldn't work this way, but that's where we are at the moment. One of the big reasons why this FTX disaster got so big was because a lot of the lack of clarity that's on the inside of the United States for our own regulated crypto institutions like Gemini and coinbase. They just haven't been able to produce some of the products that were so attractive that FTX was able to produce because they were in The Bahamas. And a lot of the ire out of people in the crypto space has been directed towards Gary gensler and his hard handedness towards American companies and has also neglect of external companies like FTX. Is there any do you share in that frustration of Gary gensler in the SEC or what's the role? What's the opinion of the gensler's administration by your fellow regulators?

"For more exploring. So check them out, and now we'll get to this conversation with pat toomey, the senator out of Pennsylvania. Bankless nation, we are live here with senator to me senator to me as a senator, Republican senator from Pennsylvania. He's also a ranking member of the Senate banking housing and urban affairs a committee. This is a very important committee. He's also in the past, been somewhat friendly to crypto and some of the things we've been up to senator. Welcome to bank list, it's great to have you. Thanks for having me. Can we start with a big picture? We want to cover a few things today. We're going to talk about FTX and some other things. But can you give us the big picture of the upside, the potential that you see in crypto? Why have you defended it before? How do you think it might help the American people? Well, so here's the way I think about this. When the Internet first came along and we could exchange emails. That was great. And at that point, it never for a second occurred to me that someday, like, all consumer products would be happening. Over the Internet that I'd be able to use an iPhone to hail a car, I mean, the list is endless and it was so transformative our entire economy. So now I look at what crypto means to me, and I think of different crypto projects as like these various protocols. And a lot of them are like operating systems on which people can run these apps that are going to do all kinds of things that probably exceed my imagination as much as everything we take for granted today exceeded my imagination back in 1999 when I first started doing emails. So I don't know all the way. I mean, there's the obvious categories like payments and identity verification and ownership issues and things like that. Those are already pretty clear, but I think the potential of this sort of freestanding independent disintermediated software is enormous. And I'm not necessarily sold on the value of any particular token, but I don't think it's really about the value of individual tokens. I think it's about the underlying technology. So your argument is this is an important underlying technology, like the Internet. It's innovative in that capacity. Can we frame the question another way and ask the opposite way, which is like, what's at stake if the U.S. misses crypto? Let's say, I mean, the U.S. is very supportive from a regulatory legislative perspective of the Internet in the 1990s. Right. What's at stake if we don't take a similar approach to crypto now?

"pat toomey" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Earlier today, I spoke with Republican senator from Pennsylvania pat toomey about what he's for and what he's against that packed act to provide supplemental health benefits for veterans. So what I'm up for is the entire set of provisions that will provide new and more generous benefits in healthcare and in disability compensation for veterans. So I've not suggested any change at all in the substance of what the bill is supposed to be about. And the changes that I'm looking for would not reduce spending on behalf of veterans by a penny anywhere throughout the entire federal government. What I'm against is a completely unrelated provision that was put into this bill. It's a very complicated technical change in the budget rules that makes it easier for future congresses to spend more money. And it could be as much as $400 billion over the next ten years. What I'm in favor of is keeping the budget rule as it's been for many, many years, not making that change. That's completely unrelated to delivering benefits for veterans. My understanding is that other 400 number here would be moving from discretionary to mandatory. But isn't that 400 number itself for various health benefits? That's what's wrong with making that mandatory. Because it doesn't change the ability of the government to make those payments to cover those services. What this is an accounting change. This is a change in the way the government chooses to categorize the spending that's going to happen either way. If it is categorized as mandatory spending all of a sudden, which is the change that this bill would do to existing programs, the reason they want to do that is because it then frees up $400 billion underneath the spending caps that discretionary spending is subject to, and it allows for this spending spree on unrelated things. But doesn't Congress have the keys to its own jail there. I mean, when that came up, it can change those spending. That is an argument that says, why have any budget rules? Because sure, Congress always has the keys. Congress can always undo anything. It can pass a new law. But we nevertheless do set up some guardrails. In the hopes that that will provide some constraint on runaway spending. It hasn't worked real well. I'm not in favor of taking down what few guardrails we have. So you're taking a lot of hits on this. And the press John Stewart and others. How do you get out of this? How do you preserve what you think is important in this bill and still fix the problem you have? So look, I don't know whether I'll be successful in getting rid of this extraneous gimmick for a spending spree. But what I've suggested is there's kind of an old fashioned way to address this. Let's have a vote. Let's see if there's a majority of the Senate that agrees with me or if a majority of the Senate disagrees with me, I'm going to have to live with that outcome. And that's what we ought to do. So I don't know whether senator Schumer will allow that. He generally doesn't like votes on amendments as a practical matter. But if he'll agree to doing it here, then we get this resolved. And by the way, however it gets resolved either way, the very next vote can be passage, which will get 85 votes, and if my amendment succeeds, I'll vote for it. That was Pennsylvania senator pat toomey. Coming

Pat Toomey: 'Inflation Reduction Act' Offers No Corresponding Benefit

"Senator to me though says in cut number three that he was taken to the cleaners, I'd have to agree. Cut number three. Well, it's going to make inflation worse, actually. So they've got a big corporate tax increase that's going to probably make this recession that we're in worse. All of this spending is unnecessary. It's going to exacerbate inflation. It is not going to reduce the deficit. And what did senator Manchin get for us? Look, I'm a big fan of Joe Manchin. We are Friends as he said, and I like Joe very much. But I think he got taken to the cleaners. He's agreeing to all this bad policy in return for which he's been promised that there's going to be some kind of pro energy infrastructure Bill sometime in the future. Well, first of all, I thought we did that in the infrastructure Bill. Secondly, what is the text? But most importantly, why isn't that in this bill? And the answer is because Democrats don't support it. So this is going to do a lot of harm and there's not going to be a corresponding benefit. There's going to be no benefit whatsoever.

Jon Stewart Is Pushing a Veteran Healthcare Bill He Doesn't Understand

"John Stewart is out there pushing a bill that is designed supposedly in order to make sure that people who are in the military and who have been around toxic substances get the healthcare that they need. And that is supposedly what this bill is about. I say supposedly because that's what the bill is about, but the Democrats also added a massive budget gimmick that essentially adds $400 billion in spending. To the bill, they just added it right on top. John Stewart was out there pushing this bill because John Stewart doesn't know how legislation works, John Stuart is not a particularly sophisticated political player. I understand these ban on TV for a very long time and then he went absent for a very long time. But Jon Stewart is essentially any other Hollywood activist. He reads the top line of articles and never reads about paragraph four. Well, here's what happened with this bill. So there is a bill, and the bill included a bunch of healthcare provisions to help U.S. Military veterans who had been stationed around burn pits, which are pits that are essentially dug to dispose of waste at military sites, and the smoke has been seen to cause long-term respiratory illness and many of the exposed soldiers. So there's a bill to pay for their healthcare, the problem is that what Democrats then did is Democrats took a bunch of money in the Bill and that money had been labeled as discretionary spending. They were adding on top and they shifted it over to what's called mandatory spending. Now when they did that, which means that under all circumstances government, shut down, under mandatory spending, the money must be spent. That didn't take the amount of money that's his $400 billion. It didn't take it from discretion or discretionary to mandatory. And then the $400 billion in discretionary spending just disappeared. All that did was it freed up $400 billion in discretionary spending. So that $400 billion slot still holds. It's still there. So through a budgetary gimmick, basically Democrats took the discretionary spending, they said that we will call it mandatory. That didn't make the $400 billion that was discretionary. Like in a big bag, shift over to the mandatory category. All it did was it added $400 billion in discretionary spending. It just meant that the $400 billion that had already been allocated, now moves into the mandatory, but there's now a big $400 billion bag of cash that is out there under this bill. So pat toomey, who's a Republican from Pennsylvania. He opposed the bill. And this caused John Stewart to rail against pat toomey. Because again, he doesn't care how much the government spends. Democrats don't care how much the real question here is why Democrats did this gimmick in the first place. Why are Democrats trying to add $400 billion in slush fund spending to a bill that was designed to protect the healthcare of military veterans?

Skepticism Is Key for Bob Cesca Over Possible Gun Legislation

"Gears what are your thoughts on the gun legislation that may happen in the Senate? That macaw has indicated that he's putting it. Yeah, yeah. I'm still, I think healthily skeptical as to whether or not those ten Republicans who have agreed to support this legislation will actually step up and break the filibuster. When the time comes, now I'm trying not to be cynical about this. I'm just skeptical about because we've been this we've been in this place many, many times. Lucy, I'm just hesitant to become. Yeah, I don't want to be Lucy with the football. Charlie Brown with the football. And because that has happened so many times after sandy hook, the mansion to me amendment, which would have closed all kinds of loopholes in the system. That was filibustered, right? Even though it had bipartisan support, pat toomey was one of the co authors of it. And so in that sense, I'm skeptical as to whether this is going to pass. And I'm looking at a lot of the statements that are coming out through that lens. So with Mitch McConnell, for example, he said he was happy with the framework. Right. Which doesn't yeah, that gives him a lot of wiggle room to say, well, I like the framework, but then they got their talons into it and they started messing with it. They turned it into something that I just can't support and conscious because the Second Amendment, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And so he's got room. You did. The head came out of the shell to make a statement. Yeah. Right. So he's got wiggle room to kind of escape from. He said that he said, he said, if the legislation ends up reflecting what the framework indicates, I'll be supporting it. So right, right. If background checks all of a sudden are added in, nope. That was deliberate. That much, yeah. McConnell's reaction right there. Every word that he said was deliberately placed to give him an escape

Senators Urge Biden to Add More H-2B Seasonal Worker Visas

"17 Republicans just signed a letter to Joe Biden. I'm reading from breitbart dot com demanding saying we need more foreign workers. So there are 12 million Americans out of work, there's 35 to 40 million members of my generation that are underemployed. Let me say that again. They are underemployed. So you're not even looking at unemployment. Let's talk about underemployment. Now, what is underemployment? Well, it's someone that went to Wichita state university, and they got a degree in Central American migratory bird studies. And they're working as a barista or they're working as some sort of social media manager, but they are clearly underemployed. But don't worry, Senate Republicans are on the job. Senate Republicans believe that while Biden is trying to bring more people into the country, they want to help them do that. Senators asked Biden to speed up the process, so employers could get more foreign workers into blue collar American jobs. So while we have inflation and while things are more expensive, they want to bring in more foreign workers so that you could depress wages. So prices are going up, so let's try to get our own carpenters and plumbers disenfranchised from ever being able to have meaningful work. Why are they doing this? Well, the 17 Republicans who signed the letter, and I respect some of these people, and I philosophically see where Rand Paul is coming from on this. I totally disagree with him. He's more libertarian when it comes to immigration. I am not. But some of these other people, Kevin Kramer, Mike rounds Lindsey Graham, James rish, Lisa Murkowski, Roy blunt, Cynthia lummis, John cornyn, Mike crapo, John thune, Susan Collins pat toomey, roger wicker, Jerry Moran, Rand Paul, who I'm going to exempt Rand Paul because he's been so amazing on Fauci and honestly, he's a friend of mine, and he's just been awesome on many other things.

This is from RJ hauman from the federation for American immigration reform, saying quote, Republicans say they're great on the illegal front due to the border crisis, but why not also oppose programs that a rife with abuse displace American workers and depressed wages, of course they do.

Bitcoin Rallies Defiantly as Senate Infrastructure Battle Hits a Snag

"What's going on guys. It is monday. August ninth and today. We're talking about bitcoins. Defiant rally as the senate battle hits something of a snag so let's get caught up on everything that happened this weekend at this point. I'm going to assume you know the setup at least somewhat last minute provision in the infrastructure bill looked to get around twenty eight billion dollars of the bills cost to be covered by new tax. Reporting rules around crypto. The problem well there are a lot of problems for one. The joint committee on taxation. That came up with this number. Hasn't had to show its work anywhere and there's fairly good reason to be skeptical that there's nearly thirty billion dollars and under reported crypto taxes but alas that wasn't the issue we had to focus on instead the issue at hand was that the new reporting requirements swept everyone in crypto networks including non-custodial actors like miners validation software developers into the definition of a broker by their very nature. These actors don't have access to the info that would be obligated to report anyway fast forward over the course of the last week. Washington was assailed with what they found to be a shocking amount of lobbying from the crypto community shocking to them perhaps much less shocking to those of us who actually know about the fervor in. This space a bipartisan group of senators including republicans. Pat toomey and cynthia lumps and democrat. Ron wyden put forth an amendment that made clear exemptions people like miners. This seemed like it should have been all that controversial republican rob portman who wrote the provisions in the first place had said numerous times that the intent was not to include those people however the treasury department who he was consulting closely with wanted. Maximum flexibility to write the implementation however they chose

Republicans have successfully filibustered. The creation of a bipartisan commission split evenly between democrats and republicans for a comprehensive inquiry into the deadly direction mob that stormed the capital in january sixth and attempted to throw a fear faire free and fair election while we all watched on television and republicans. Did it with the help of a key accomplice. The senate rules. Here's the vote. Tally ready for this. Do some math in your head so you can figure this one out which ones bigger the vote was fifty four as against thirty five days now in any other context where you're voting and fifty four people want something and thirty five people do not well. That's a win for the as but in the united states senate apparently is not because you need sixty votes over conned filibuster not even sixty percent of those senators who bothered to stick around but sixty votes out of however many there are and the absences to democrats.

"At the max seems to me to be not the right prioritization of our time, right? And now your host. Jordan secular, so impeachment D away, I think probably so and here's why 45 Republicans Voted to not even have a trial. They believe it's unconstitutional to try a former president. Chief justice isn't there. Unconstitutional? Procedurally wrong? Can't proceed. Now. That vote, of course, didn't succeed. So there still is a trial scheduled. But what does it mean on Lee five Republicans Voted along with Democrats. To say this trial could proceed. So what does that mean? They are. They are way short. The 17 Republicans, you would need to vote to convict President Trump and impeach him and then had the vote to bar him from office. So again, let's look at these numbers. Why is that significant? Well, these five by the way, even by voting that they think that the trial is okay to have Doesn't mean that they will vote to impeach the president. But the five who voted that it's okay to have the tribal trial. Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney Been sass and Pat Toomey. Out of that group. I only feel like it's really Mitt Romney, who I would say, isn't it? Probably a yes. Vote to impeachment. All of the rest. I think just had a different view of the Constitution. And are still not necessarily, yes votes, and that's why I think Rand, Paul said. With certainty that listen, you can't even guarantee those five are gonna vote for impeachment. So you're getting nowhere close to the 67 you need Which would include 17 Republicans. Toe, actually have this impeachment. So now people like Democrat Senator Tim Kaine are putting out there that you know. Maybe we should have this trial at all. Take a listen. To do a trial knowing you'll get 55.

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

Morning Edition

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

"Democrats are moving forward with the plan to impeach President Trump for a second time. President has just nine days left in office, and Democrats say this week they plan to file an impeachment resolution. This follows Trump's incitement of his supporters last Wednesday, hundreds of whom descended on the U. S Capitol. The violent scene left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer and NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell is here with us this morning with the latest take healthy. Good morning. How will this impeachment proceeding work? Well, it will start today when Democrats plan to bring up a resolution that would call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment. Democrats will try to pass that unanimously, but Republicans could and probably will block it with just one objection. After that, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is basically giving Pence 24 hours. I kind of ultimatum to decide if he's going to invoke the 25th amendment. If he doesn't she plans to bring the process you know to Ah, hold of bring together the process to hold a vote on impeachment. Which could happen as early as Wednesday. Now on the question of impeachment, it's currently just one article referring to incitement to insurrection. It's based on Trump's address to the crowd before the riots began, and his attempts to overturn the election in 2020 more than 200. Democrats have signed on, and I'm told that they expect some Republicans will support it, too. You know, Democrats are pretty unified and saying what happened? The capital cannot be swept under the rug. Is that Trump can't be allowed to simply leave office without any consequences, And they want to make sure that the Senate has the opportunity to vote to convict so that it can bar trump from holding future federal office. Okay, Kelsey. This actually brings me to the question of Republicans. We heard a few of them say over the last few days, they want Trump out of office. How widespread? Is that feeling within the GOP, you know, some of that is kind of hard to gauge because most of them have been quiet. We know that Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was the first to say that Trump should resign, but she's been joined by retiring Senator Pat Toomey. He was asked about this yesterday on CNN. I think at this point with just a few days left, it's the best half forward. Now there are a few others that agree. But some others, like Missouri Senator Roy Blunt, who's part of Republican leadership, says he basically wants Trump to be quiet for 10 days and just leave. You know, House Republican leaders have also mostly been silent, except for Liz Cheney, who has often broken with the rest of House Republican leadership when it comes to Trump Okay. This process the house wants to do is is really quick. But there's still the Senate, right? And you know, that is really the wild card here because Republicans will control the Senate until the Georgia elections are certified. And then the Senate has to meet and do some required organizing work. So that means that Mitch McConnell would control the timing and the Senate is out of session. So what would need to happen is they would have to bring them back into session. They would start a trial basically around Inauguration Day. Once an impeachment trial is triggered in the Senate, it stops everything else from happening. It forces senators to come to the Senate floor stick down six days a week until the trial concludes, and that could take weeks. House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn floated a proposal that he says could solve it. Here He is yesterday on CNN President Look Bad 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running. Maybe we'll send you the articles. Sometimes after that, Ah, 100 Days is a really long time And that could be well after Trump leaves office And you know, Democrats want to proceed for all the reasons I've mentioned before, but this creates a really complicating political moment for Biden as he tries to, you know, move forward and move the country ahead. And this is all happening. I 30 seconds with you as we prepare for Joe Biden's inauguration. What are the concerns about safety? Yeah, they're still concerns the capitals a little bit like a fortress right now, with fences and National Guard troops and there. There's a process of a review right now. But there are serious concerns about whether or not the capital but will be fully safe for the bite. Administration were told that there are really efforts right now trying to Trying to beef up security and take every precaution. Possible.
