"To welcome back senator Rick Scott of the great state of Florida senators got good to have you back it's great to be back to how you doing I'm good I'm wondering if you wish you were back in the governor's office because you'd be in charge of Florida's response or whether or not it's time eight year enjoying being in the battle in the Senate you know it's a great job to be the governor because you are responsible for things a day to get to get them done as always things you like to do but this is a great job being your standard because you can help direct national policy in foreign policy so it's a different job that I'm in it I'm a do everything I can to help people get more testing out their plans to reopen our businesses I have a plan out there I put out there a little over a week ago how do how do what do we all have to do it federal government the state government local government and private business the individuals with more compliant so senator your have arrived in the Senate on the eve of what will be one of the most significant legislative debates I believe since we actually set up the government because it's going to involve structural federalism what does the federal government do vis a vis the states and you were a great federalist because you the governor that your time is a governor taught you that the federal government is never here to help yet usually but now you might be there to get help you might need help because of fiscal decisions that were taken twenty years ago thirty years ago and a virus which arrived thirty days ago what is your point of view going into this very important legislative debate about phase four well you I think it's important that we help the state with the cost of coronavirus it's so different to what happened with the hurricane we've already done that we said we sent money to the state we said we're gonna help you with your coronavirus costs ninety gets ready to do we also sent money to the state if they were going to help you with your increased Medicaid costs and I think that's appropriate or not interested in doing is bailing out pension plans from the liberal state they don't live within their budget I think you know I was the governor I had to balance the budget I did deal with the pension plan I did it with all the other things I watch New York with fewer people in Florida I think we have two or three million more people than Florida the New York everybody was almost double ours and now all these liberal state when the federal government how to bail them out so somebody moved from New York to get away from the high taxes moved to Sarasota and then now the next now these little governor say now I want those people to move his to the state to balance our budget and pay for our our our our bad budget now senator you spent eight years in the national association of governors and at the same time Andrew Cuomo is there because he's been there for twelve or thirteen or fourteen or maybe a hundred years on Andrew Cuomo's a good governor people like me doing a good job but he got all mad at your leader and said it was outrageous made a personal attack maybe that's a New York thing right now we've seen that in other places so what do you make of Andrew Cuomo's volcanic rejection of the idea that maybe the state side I have as an option bankruptcy authority well first of all I didn't join the national governors association because I was thinking about I think was three hundred thousand dollars to the state and I didn't see any value out of it so I think it's because I didn't see any value out of it so I didn't I didn't own it have you ever met Angelo never met him no K. never know I've never met him I talked to him once on the phone but that that that's it here's the way I look at it we've we've got to help the state there have had these horrible budget haven't bounced them figure out how to deal with their pension plans so you know we do however you do it you've got to figure out how how they can restructure their debts because there's no way that their taxpayers are willing to pay for this they're not gonna pay for their death you can't run on raising taxes and then I mean what the end of the season the states have their their pension plans are damn close to being funded and they will never be funded like Illinois and New Jersey California but what about the problem senator I'm gonna put on my Gavin Newsom half because I lived in California for a long time member of the Virginia now but I lived there for a long time he's doing a good job with the virus but it's easy to shut down economy it's very hard to reopen it they haven't you know I think a marginal income tax rate of thirteen and a half percent they have a very high sales tax they are and they have a capital gain tax they're going to get crushed because they're they depend upon tax revenues which are not going to arrive do you consider that to be a virus related responsibility of the federal government the loss of income tax capital gains tax sales tax user tax fees no white I mean look look look at the federal budget I mean we're going to run at least a three trillion dollar budget deficit this year the federal government we have already in the year which probably twenty six or twenty seven trillion dollars with that that this year so three trillion dollar budget deficits twenty six twenty seven twenty dollars for that I mean it's so weird to which taxpayers are gonna pay for it the state should live within their means can figure this out well this is reminiscent of Irish cost governor I I I senator governor I can call you about Romney governor I always call governors governor forever and Chuck Todd once famously told me they never had a governor who became the center who wanted to be known as other than governor I said it's kind of funny if we look at this here's the problem I gotta ask governor Romney about this too if we do a jam down of of reform that violates basic federalism principles our country is built on the state's being allowed to be irresponsible if they want and now there is a meteor strike on their finances so I can hear my blue state listeners saying you've got to help us this is a hurricane well look no further we are helping them with their costs were helping them with their car buyers because what happened with the Medicaid eight I walked in with the with almost ready with a four billion dollar budget deficit I walked in at the end of the financial crisis we had we had a million homes in foreclosure we lost eight thousand jobs or what I did I had to balance the budget I had to allocate the dollars away I could I started cutting taxes because I knew reducing taxes reducing regulations your money permitting I will get more jobs back and guess what we had one point seven million jobs unemployment went from eleven percent to three point three percent I paid off the third of the state that we you know we we we we made a pension reforms those are harder to me but you have to do it it's just it's it's hard to be a governor that governor Cuomo argues and I don't know if this is true or not you're asking me to fire nurses and police officers firemen and first responders and and a shutter hospitals that are needed you're asking us to cut the life the heart out of the beating that the barely beating heart of our state what's your response absolutely not I mean let's let's look at the first off we we have a hundred and seventy five billion dollars in for our our healthcare industry we've we have put in at the S. C. B. I think that there's another fifty billion dollars into the Medicaid program we have we put in money to cover it at the other corner by risk costs right so we know we've we've we've actually you know put significant dollars into our state I wanted to do that but you've got to figure out as the governor how to allocate your dollars and you look you look why is why is new York's budget almost in double floors well we have two or three million more people want that why can't we figure out how to fix their pension plans now he says they don't we also said they are net givers and that can talk in other places are net takers what do you mean I think that argument is completely nonsense because every federal citizen pays according to the same rules their federal share and states decide how much to take in their states but nevertheless says we paid this much and we get this much back and we're and we're not in that okay now now don't don't don't don't believe that that's really all that they all went very few if you look at the amount of dollars he did say it does take Medicaid just the basic Medicaid without the expansion and you look at how much in New York it's versus forty extra mathematically more their cost thank you they get almost double per person under Medicaid and the federal government that would sort of get well you know I'd love to see a debate between you and governor Cuomo because president trump and been a governor and so I would love to see a governor go head to head with him on this here's the key question I firmly believe that bankruptcy authority not mandatory better option be available to the states because I lived in Orange County and we had to go through at that point the largest local government bankruptcy ever it was unpleasant but it wasn't a disaster it was a useful tool as it is proven for Detroit what do you think about a new chapter in the bankruptcy code not mandatory for states that have to give everybody a hair cut I think I think they ought to have a way to do it they got to have a way to restructure the debts they know they'll never gonna be able you know if you consider what they've done it's unclear what they told they told people in their state if you're you're gonna get a pension all guys but we're not going to fund it but you're gonna get it don't worry you're gonna get it but what I don't know how these people think that the that the hell this is fair to the people rely on extension I made I had to make tough choices it's hard but you got to do it if you're gonna tell people you can get a pension fund it's location to fund it what about and the people who buy what about people in California about ten billion dollars worth of bonds for a high speed train that will never be built they've already spent six billion dollars a lot it's federal money some state money but they they borrowed ten billion they authorize ten billion dollars in bonds for a train from nowhere to nowhere a.

First of all, I would have picked a less speed to be the governor and not north them in the first place. But is it worse to be a member of the clan as bird was or is it bad? Not to be in a photo wearing Klan outfit because that's north and says, that's not me. If one is bad. How much worse is the day being actual member of the Ku Klux Klan, which Democrats or the founders of the clan. The Democrats were the clan. The Democrats marched in Washington in the nineteen thirties in Klan outfits, the democratic member of the clan. Robert Byrd was picked by the Democrats to run the Senate at the same time that Ralph Northam was only a medical student twenty-five years old Robert K K K bird was in his sixties. How's it possible? The media doesn't make that connection to the democrat party. And is anyone made a study to save for a black folk the worst place for you to live isn't a black congressional district every objective measurement? If you had the money. Would you send your kids if Chicago public schools? My producer dangling says yes, I would do that. I don't think anybody else would. I know how lousy the Cincinnati public schools are. I assume the New York public schools are terrible. But that's all Democrats. No one does that work the highest crime areas in our country controlled by Democrats, the highest taxes are controlled by Democrats. So there's the media make any of these connections to the failure of so many poor Americans or the Democratic Party. Absolutely not because the media is a megaphone of the democrat party. We're not going to criticize one of our own. So when governor Rick Scott, well, I thought did a great job this morning with meet the press. He went on and talked about the fact that the Senate is completely dysfunctional. He says the senators would rather make political points then solve the nation's problems. He said there's too much hatred on Capitol Hill toward the president quote. There's so much hatred up there right now people are not working together. We got. Stop. And let's act in the interests of the American public. What a novel suggestion. Said he wants a big deal. That includes the deamer the dreamers and TPS and all the rest make sense, right? Scott went there with the best of intentions. He's a good, man. I've had him on a few times did a good job as the governor of my second. Adopt. The state of Florida wonderful. So he's caught into the swamp. It's impossible for me to conclude that at any point in the next week or two that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. We'll put on the president's desk a Bill that he can sign and be ready to stand behind him in the rose garden and tell the American people Democrats and Republicans have worked together to solve the immigration problem that will never ever happen impossible, and the media will pull it that out to you. It will not happen. What they want is for the president to use an executive order declaring a national emergency. They've already got federal judge picked out in San Francisco doing join it. And it'll take one to two years to get up to the Supremes by then the election will be ongoing. They're gonna think they're gonna like the democratic president. He will then resend the executive order illegal immigrants keep flooding over the border with rubella and aids and polio and hepatitis and tuberculosis and malaria, syphilis and gonorrhea pirate diarrhea and a bunch of others. That's what's happening in the sanctuary cities. A headline in Los Angeles Times. Today LA is dealing with the deadly flea-born. Typhus outbreak typhus comes from fleas, occupy the packs of mice and rats the size of cats and Los Angeles half the homeless population. And Los Angeles are illegal aliens who were not screened at all for these diseases. They're bringing these into the country getting American sick and killing Americans in that a big story. How many stories have you seen like that on CNN? The answer is zero doesn't fit all the news fits they print that doesn't fit. How many national stories have been on governor north talking about killing babies after birth factor matter is there was a quick thirty second story on CBS? And that's it because the national media are pro-abortionist that they think abortion is a sacrament got no problem with it. You don't see those.

That right now, the American public they're sick and tired of having to rehash these these conversations and in thirty five years, we don't want to have this conversation. So the way to do it is not stamp at you actually have to weed it out you have to make some allowance for because we're human beings for stupidity. Bad taste ignorance and be willing to accept sincere. Apologies challenge was that. He did not come out and did not come out and tell the American people I may have done. Started Friday night when this was all breaking. And it was you couldn't get in touch with the governor's office. If your life depended on it, then he came out and said, I did a racist thing. Then he came out the next day and says he didn't do that racist thing, but he did another racist thing. So I think there are some who are questioning how sincere the whole thing actually was. If we're going to be on the ballot box soon. I think everybody would say, well, let's let the voters decide, but he's not going to be on the ballot box perhaps ever know. And you know. Look if we were talking about something he did in eighteen eighty four or nineteen thirty four or something like that. I think I would have perhaps a different reaction. I would perhaps accept as oh well, everybody didn't which but everybody can do that in nineteen Eighty-four. It's just simply the case.

Welcome back with two weeks for the president and congressional leaders to make a border deal. Republican leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly warning President Trump both in public and private against using his exit ramp a national emergency declaration. But as the president listening. Whatever works, which means aborting shutdown and voiding the president feeling he should declare a national emergency. I think there's a good chance it will have to do that. But we will at the same time we build it, regardless building wall. And we're building a lot of wall. But I could do it a lot faster than the other way. Joining me now is Republican Senator Rick Scott, a Florida, and I say Senator because this is first time on the show as Senator Senator Scott, welcome. And have you decided like a bunch of other former governors in the Senate that you missed the old title? It's Chuck at the different job. You know? I I ran for the job because I want to get something done DC's dysfunctional very frustrating. Well, let's start about this frustrating. You you actually, it's ironic you had to take the oath during shutdown, right? All of these new members elected in two thousand eighteen taking an oath of shut talk about your metaphor for dysfunction has the president in his public threat of a national emergency. Still does that undermine doesn't that undermine the negotiations that are happening now Capitol Hill. Well, first off. I don't think it's the first thing you want to do is use your urgency power to to do things like this. But if I was the president right now, I'd be pretty frustrated. You know, everybody says oh gosh. We don't want government shutdown and everybody says we need border security. And then you see Nancy Pelosi sit there and saying there's not gonna be any money for wall when you talk to border security, they say you have to have barriers so people are being disingenuous. It's like they're just actors, and there's just a lot of hatred up there for President Trump on the democrat side. And it's frustrating. We gotta get something done.

"Hispanic voters in this country tend not to vote they vote some, but whichever side can actually mobilise them as a an ethnic block can dominate politics in this country for a very long time and Democrats are seen worrying signs, for example here in Georgia. Brian Kim got forty percent of the vote that voted in Florida. Rick Scott got fifty percent of the Hispanic vote in Texas. Ted Cruz got fifty percent. Greg Abbott got over sixty percent of the Hispanic vote Hispanic voters tend to be the most socially conservative voters in the country. And so Democrats need immigration as an issue with which to scare Hispanic voters and convinced them that the Republicans do not have their interests at heart. There is a problem in the underlying data for Democrats. The problem is that most Hispanic voters who came here legally are okay with restrictions on illegal immigration. They took the time to do it legally. They think everyone else should as well. So the Democrats to expand the Hispanic coalition of the Democratic Party has hit on a multiple prong strategy. One of which is they've got to support illegal immigrants becoming citizens because those are the Hispanic voters that would support illegal immigrants. They've got to do that. Yes. It is part of expanding the democrat coalition, they see younger Hispanic voters are still socially conservative, but they are more willing to be tolerant of illegal immigration. So the Democrats are doing what they can to get the younger generations of Hispanic voters to vote for him. They've got a demonize Republicans on this issue. And now democratic polling suggested them the wall is unpopular it's unpopular with Hispanic voters and importantly, Hispanic illegal immigrants, don't like the wall. And again, the Democrats want to grant these people citizenship. So they've got to oppose the wall. Who cares what they did in the ninety s they know the media will never ever ever hold them accountable on that issue. So they can proceed. Muhammed from Lawrenceville.

So I think president would be genius if he just declared the security national security and the us all the military resources to create the to build a wall because otherwise the Democrats are just going to. Just not gonna let it happen. Yeah. Look a and I think that's something the president. Thank you very much for the phone call the president is thinking of doing that tomorrow night. He vice president Pence this afternoon said they're examining whether or not they can declare a state of emergency and reprogrammed dollars, by the way at the top of the hour. When we come back. I want to talk about what it would take for the president to reprogram dollars. Because I I think we can all agree, Republicans and Democrats alike. If the president spins money that congress has not allocated it is an impeachable offense. The power of the purse belongs with congress have congress has ordered or allowed money to be spent the president cannot spend it if he spins it. This gets us back to where we were at the revolution with the king, and it's an impeachable offense. But, but but congress routinely gives the president discretion to rearrange how money is spent in if the president can find some discretion given by congress to rearrange or what's called reprogram money that he's perfectly within his rights to do what he wants to do. I think the question is. Where can they find it? There is some question of whether or not the department of homeland security has reprogramming money available at is discretion right now.
