"Continue with the Rick Unger show on this Wednesday edition. We are joined by somebody I really wanted to speak to For quite some time. Now we have yet to be able to get our schedules to work out. But we did succeed in doing it today. I'm talking about Charlie Sykes. Now I think that almost all of you are by this time. Familiar with Charlie. You see him on MSNBC. You see him on NBC. Many of you read of the ball work. Many of you listen to the bulwark podcast. Charlie Sykes is the founder and the editor of at large of the ball work. He is also the author of nine books, including most recently how the right lost his mind. Now. That is a fascinating title coming from Charlie because until he stepped down in December of 2016, he spent 23 years as one of Wisconsin's top rated and most influential conservative talk show hosts. Charlie. It's really great to have you here on the program. Richard. Thank you so much. You can't call me Richard. That's the first violation. See that you one time Republicans, man. I can always count on this happening. It's Rick. Rick Richard is just way too. Should I have to call you, Charles? No, no, no, Charlie's fine. Alright. So, listen, I can't be proud You are. You are a fascinating case to me. I got and I'm going to tell you why I have been familiar with your radio show for a very long time I became more familiar during the Scott Walker era. I was I was writing a great deal about Scott Walker when I was doing my column at Forbes and Scott Walker did not like me very much. And I remember One day he was on your show, which he frequently was, and you asked him a question about something that I had written. And and Governor Walker called me a liar. Well, I wasn't a liar. I had told the truth. But nevertheless, I found it fascinating because I always found your show to be on what I used to call the edge of reason. For a conservative talk show. I didn't think it was in you to to be a purveyor of just stark gross red meat, and I think we have found that to be the case. Is that how you would have sized up your performance in the radio days? I would like to think so. I would like to think that I was on the right side of the edge of reason. Um, but, um, brick regrets. I have a few. You know, I look back on that on that era and I have to ask myself what did I miss? Um, what did I not understand? Um, you know, I thought I understood what the conservative movement was about. Obviously, I was quite wrong. I thought I understood what Republicans stood for. And clearly, um, that doesn't hold up very well does it? So, um, I have to go back and think about a lot of those things. You know, There were things that that I still agree with. That I would do again. But there are a lot of things that I really honestly have to look back on and go. What was I thinking? Did I change or did they change and it's a complicated question. And I'm not sure I fully know what the answer is. Well, it's interesting that you're struggling with the question It is. Um, as as just an outsider watching the process. I would say that they probably change more than you changed. I've listened to your show for years. As I say. You know, you are certainly through the right of me, but I never found you to be nonsensically. So you always did have that that edge of reason. As I say. So I I suspect that it was more of a case where the Republican philosophy If there is one any longer, probably left you. Don't you think that's more likely? Well, I think that that's certainly part of it. There's no question about it. Um and you know, I was aware at the time that there was another branch of the right wing media. That was More conspiracy theory or oriented. There was more red meat oriented that would demagogue the issues and and I'm planning and I, and they tried to differentiate myself from that. But having said that, uh, you mentioned people like Scott Walker on my show a lot. Paul Ryan was on my show. Um, a great deal and talked about the national the debt and the deficit and the need to, you know, you know, deal with that that looming crisis and I believed a lot of acid. I believe that you know the deficit and the debt with this massive issue. You that conservatives cared about very, very deeply. And then it turned out they didn't so, um yes, they left me. But also I've had to sit back and go. Okay. I need to rethink these things as well. Um, What's interesting in the Republican party is that if you are loyal to Donald Trump, you are given a permanent hall pass. To abandon every principle you ever had. But if you have been anti Trump were never trump and you deviate from conservative orthodoxy. Ha ha! I see That's a sign that you become a traitor that you've gone over to the other side. So, basically, Rick, I didn't screw that. You know, I think that you're never too old to say. Maybe I was wrong about that. Maybe I missed that. Maybe the the depth, you know, all of the rhetoric about the debt. The deficit was about something else other than the debt and the deficit. Who knew? Well, you know, I wonder. You know, Paul Ryan is an interesting figure in this regard, and I do know that he was a frequent guest on your program. And I think somebody who you felt a lot of a tree Action to because the things that he said, which did not necessarily turn out to be what the real policy of the Republican Party was. But again, Isn't that a situation? Do you find that you feel any differently about debt and deficit? Today? We've been talking about this quite a bit. There's the whole new monetary theory out there, which suggests that maybe debts and deficits are not as grave As some people think they should be. Are you rethinking that? Or you simply saying, you know what the Republicans left these important arguments behind and went in a different direction. I think a little bit of both of those things you know, part of it is and I'll be really honest with you here. Um, a lot of the issues that I felt very strongly about. I just don't care about as much anymore. I think that the challenges facing the country the existential challenges to democracy, for example, are so much more important than the green eye shade approach to the issues. I I do think that We need to figure out how did things go wrong?.

"The Rick under show. And now here's Rick Unger. Welcome back to the Rick Hunger Show over the weekend. I took a walk around my neighborhood. I know that many of you do the same thing. But I noticed something. I noticed that there were farm or going out of business signs hanging in windows than I had seen on the previous weekend when I took a walk. Now that is not a good sign. Not only did I find myself feeling bad for some of these stores that I've known for many years because they're in my neighborhood, but I thought, G. If this is happening here in my part of New York City, this has got to be happening everywhere. It did make me wonder. How effective our government had been in distributing money in a way that could save Mohr of these main street mom and pop businesses. Now I've heard good stories. I've heard the stories of how $30 billion Has been returned. To the federal government by public companies, Large companies companies that recognized that they had the wherewithal the capability of solving these interim problems on their own. And to them, I say, way to go. But then I've also heard the stories of companies like the one that belongs to Kanye West, a sneaker company. Kanye tells us that he made 1.5 $1,000,000,000 last year. From that sneaker company. That's very nice, Gagne. But one would think that maybe you didn't need to take the 1/2 to 3.5 $1,000,000 that you gladly pocketed. While some of these small companies Found it impossible to keep their doors open. Now as much as I may have been disturbed by companies like that belonging to Kanye West, and some other examples of companies who I really didn't think needed our taxpayer assistance. When I came home from my walk yesterday, sat down to do a little reading catch up on some stuff. I came across an article that I could not believe. So much so that I had to go looking for others and do a little more research because I wasn't just going to report this to you without making darn sure that I had these facts, right? Sadly, I had the facts, right? Would you believe me? If I told you That the Catholic Church Accepted somewhere between $1.5 billion. And $3.5 billion. From the United States taxpayer. That's 1.5 billion to 3.5 billion. I have to tell you that my first thought, having become familiar with the rules of all of this is that that can't be right. It can't be right because religious organizations are not permitted to receive small business administration loans, and that's what these are. That's number one and number two if an organization has more than 500 employees. They, too, are not supposed to be apart. Of the Paycheck protection program. So I'm thinking, How is it possible that the Catholic church that has well over 500 employees and Oh yeah, It's a religious organization. How would they get all this money? They lobbied for that money. They went to the White House. They went to Congress. And they asked for exemptions so that they could get A 1,000,000,000 1/2 to 3.5 $1,000,000,000. Now last I checked, and by the way, I checked yesterday. The Catholic Church is not on Ly the oldest church in the world. It is by far the wealthiest religious institution in history. It is currently estimated to be worth more than $150 billion. My goodness, some of the artwork alone that is under the ownership of the church. Kind of more than handled whatever shortages they were gonna have. While people were not attending church because of the pandemic. We're not putting money in the collection plate. We're not paying tuition to the Catholic schools because of what was going on and and the personal hardships they were suffering. And however else the Catholic Church makes money. Now, do not miss. Understand. I don't want anything to go wrong with the Catholic Church or any other church. As long as you're a peaceful religion. I'm with you all the way. But honestly. If you found out that a private corporation That was worth $150 billion. Was turning to the United States government to get it through a rough period during the pandemic. How would you react to that? Would that sit? Okay with you? Because quite honestly, it doesn't sit. Okay with me. My goodness. It didn't even sit well with some divisions of the Catholic Church. Who chose not to take the money, even though they could. Why? Because they thought it was wrong for them to take that money. Nevertheless, the Archdiocese of New York In the very city where I am seeing all of these going out of business signs. Receive 15 loans worth at least $28 million just for its top executive offices in Orange County, California. Where a sparkling new glass cathedral estimated to have cost over $70 million to build recently opened. All those folks. Got at least $3 million. And it goes on and on and on. Now we have seen this kind of money going to any religious institution. I don't care if it's Jewish. I don't care if it's Islamic. I don't care if it's behi. I don't care what it is. When an organization has a net worth of $150 billion. I just don't think they should be looking to me. And it is my taxpayer money. To bail them out of this kind of a problem. And let's be honest, right? And I'm not even going to go into the entire area of how much money the Catholic Church has had to spend in recent years to settle out lawsuits involving Sexual misbehavior. So how would you expect a religious institution toe act in times like this? Well, let's take a look at the Ukrainian Catholic EP Erkki, based in Stamford, Connecticut. You know what they did, even though their parishes experienced a decline in donations. Not one of their organizations in its five state territory, submitted an application for government funds instead. The pastors and the church managers use their rainy day savings to keep people employed, and their parishioners responded generously with donations. Now that's what I would expect from a religious institution. So it probably won't surprise you when I tell you that when the Catholic bishops their lobbyist got on the phone with President Trump himself while the president talked about the importance of reelection In other words, you bring me the Catholic vote. I'm going to give you billions of dollars. Maybe I'm wrong, But I don't think that's the way it's supposed to work. I want to hear what you have to say on this topic. Does it bother you as much as it's bothering me, or am I out of line year? 833711742583371 Rick and we will continue with the Rick under Showa right after this. Call Rick, now 83371174.

"Live real Connors fascinating because I'm hearing this a lot now for my friends were trying to say well Bernie Sanders is a really socialist not really and I'm shocked that Rick Unger did the same thing of the Rick Unger show Rick and I let let's just be clear here when you made the really lose forty pounds I haven't seen I I I look fabulous you eat I I would absolutely I mean you can still arm wrestle name but and by the way the only reason I'm giving you a hard time because you said that Washington was the greatest city and we also get to your call you know I'm shocked you didn't say Columbus Ohio I think we both their better there Rick if that was what it you made the charge of the president isn't in in favor the free market and your first example and I don't know why you're so shocked by that and only actually because the only example you're getting is free trade which is not necessarily the same thing as a free market listen our world is made up of individual markets in fact our country is made up of individual economic markets for that matter now if there were no government and no differences between all of our countries then yes free trade you know in a utopian planet what I absolutely have to be free and equal on all sides of the equation but we don't trade read it with a country that does not have the same fair requisites that our nation is under based on our government so so lets a race three from the trade question for a moment and go back to free markets because they're not exactly the same thing how is president trump in some way against the free market operating in America where consumers and businesses have choice opportunities and are able to sell products and buy products without encumbrance from the outside that that gets in the way of actual products getting the value and profit that they can get based on consumer demand all right where you're you're changing the conversation which is perfectly fine or not it was always about the free trade free market because because if it doesn't work that way in real life when I go to Walmart did you go shopping if the president has has slapped errors on all of those products that Walmart carries it has eight decided impact on free market wide because now is something cost me ten dollars at Walmart and I can go down the street and buy something for less money get out that is impacting on the free market so I am all for the free market I I you know I'm not going to argue against myself because I've always win a free marketeer well that brings us back to Bernie Sanders that right your off for the market how about Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders it but there's a distinction and I think it's an important one and again I'll say it again I am not a supporter of Bernie Sanders I know that I'm just I'm just concerned that making excuses for now I'm I'm just trying to keep it real honestly Bernie Sanders is not if you know what a socialist is he ate it yeah he calls himself one but he's not yet is it you do you will be put it to you this way let's pretend and I don't think this is gonna happen but let's pretend Bernie Sanders becomes president of the United States do you imagine that he is going to try and pursued legislation that says we can only have were Brady and deodorant we don't need twenty well that's probably not on the top of his list but if you look at what's been leaked from his campaign about what he'll do through executive action there's a hell of a lot he's gonna do outside of legislation hell do it by executive ample give me an example of what that might be that would be socialist well I mean we can start with his signature plan of the of Medicare for all so you think Medicare you're like you're like going back to the era when when Ronald Reagan was running around the country saying that Medicare was socialist not Medicare for all means that we all these are doctors we all lose our private health insurance and the government you can't use it you can have a healthcare program in any country if there's no doctors so you're not gonna lose of art your voice is about his choice we lose the doctor of art yes really we did under socialism light with the obamacare system people lost doctor of will will light and number one and number two exactly how this is gonna work Leri because every doctor now you've Bernie Bernie's plan were to go into effect and again I don't happen to support his boy yeah but if it were to go into effect that means every single solitary position in America would be paid through that Medicare for all plants so why exactly would you need to lose your doctor well well Rick because a lot of doctors won't want to be doctors that he bore because it got into it to make money in the free market this is the kind of talking point where it I mean I think it's room where my point the one thing I do know is the healthcare system it may be the only thing that I'm an ex and let me tell you something for all the chatter that everybody talks about how doctors were going to drop that it didn't happen and it's not gonna happen you know why it's not going to happen is doctors have to make a living too and doctors are typically not uniquely set up to go because I'm on a mobile sales people so they are still going to be doctors and you're still going to be people becoming doctors again not supporting it I clicked over like the fall Rick argued that that this socialized medicine will not cover things like Lasix surgery and plastic surgery and hair transplants and if I'm a doctor right and that's the business I get into and I make a lot more money doing that your I will be an internist anymore if I'm interested in making money Hey Rick we got a live in there I don't know that we'll do it again we'll do it again no I appreciate I really do it's the Rick Unger show Rick Unger and again I I I my heart aches because he is a friend and a U. R. Frederick I just I worry that that for someone who doesn't support pretty standard there is policies you're already having to start to contort yourself into sort of defend them down it does give you a rough year for fifty five W.

"Rick Unger show Anne's personally keeping Tito's baka at the top of the charts please welcome back I go to the program Rick John Cooper era must be a commercial for you either and I don't drink he does laughter is still hanging on to the grey goose. absolutely great use probably number one yeah. very good in the pop off number two when money's low comes in a plastic bottle for those okay good to know. Hey speaking of woe we're gonna talk impeachment breaking you you know were in your twenties obviously for the whole Clinton impeachment sell you remember that. yes I don't remember the answer Jackson impeachment you outside well I don't want to bring that up. anyway it from what I remember there wasn't a lot of public support for impeaching Bill Clinton while people may have disagreed repulsed by what happened in the oval office the agency that rising to the high crimes and misdemeanors like along with removing a president and now I'm seeing the first pull the come out from Quinnipiac it just came out this afternoon that says just thirty seven percent support impeachment in this poll was taken after the whole Ukraine story broke so you know when the numbers are that low is this a suicide mission for the Democrats at this point. yes it is am I suppose it could be it doesn't matter you know you you what you what are you gonna worry about a suicide mission a party or what could be a suicide mission for an entire government and country. right but I'm saying from a political perspective and in terms of twenty twenty this will only strengthen trump tower. I actually don't think so but I certainly acknowledge the possibility I did I mean the way it would damage president trump is it's gonna get his base obviously fired up we know that and but then again I would argue it's really hard to believe that is based what's coming out to vote any and they certainly weren't going to vote for the Democrats are now you've got a look at those people who sit on the edge you may lead from queen away from John that's what we're going to have to wait and see you know when the when the Texan and yeah the numbers were actually pretty similar they changed quite a bit over the course of the investigation so you gotta watch that thirty nine percent number if you don't see it changing much that's going to tell you something if you do see it changing going up obviously that's going to take something very different. again with nationally syndicated radio host Rick Unger on Rick the only thing I would say that that would be I think we are all pretty much dug into our trenches I think this is not going to matter either way this is not going to cause people to vote or not vote for trump I think people know who they're voting for and this just seems like an exercise the Democrats are doing so they can say their constituency we went after him but in the end people gonna vote for who they're going to vote for this is I think you have no impact whatsoever do you think so. yeah I'm gonna disagree with that I think it you know look you obviously have to base of both parties that you're right today our duck and they're gonna vote for whoever they're going to vote for but everybody likes to forget about that which email you know I I have conversations every day on my program of callers who would say again now I'm leaning in this direction I'd one day I'm leaning in that direction there are people out there still who are undecided who are those people primarily largely they are people who are way okay with Donald trump's policies but they are not okay with Donald Trump as human beat and that's the fight that's going on right now your inside their own head now I'll tell you what it all things being equal odds are they're probably gonna go in a normal situation or Donald Trump and his policy if they're happy with with their you know their money situation and in less they follow what with the democratic candidate that definitely advantages Donald Trump this is the sort of thing however depending on what comes out there's a lot we don't know or maybe there's a lot we we already do though I don't know but depending on how this inquiry goes it is going to happen impact one way or another on that that squishy mill I can't tell you what that impact will be yeah I'm trying to take that personally the squishy middle because I'm really eating on ice cream lately so that's thanks. you would be both believable to the only two people I know on this planet truly have rock hard six pack ABS are fishing for. better you know better right right right. talk to Rick under his column is titled the token lefty cell but I never saw he was lefty I we saw you as moderate to severe it left leaning but I think you're a pragmatist like like. that's appropriate I think so so is there any risk here for for Joe Biden in terms of Ukraine it now going to be in the news for a real long time because this doesn't look terribly good for me either yeah I know I've heard the talking point about this is been investigated we found the by did nothing wrong but just on its surface the court of public opinion when your son gets fifty thousand dollars a month from a gas company in Ukraine and you had no prior experience in you know working for a gas company it just doesn't look good and I think it was the benefits the most. I I can't disagree with that I mean you know I really have dug into the story going back months I got interested actually by chance all over at the hill and his reporting which was not favorable to fight what you know the way the pictures being painted is unfair as it. Keynes to Joe Biden and anybody who would take the time to do the research will better understand why he went to Ukraine but I have not gonna disagree and say yeah there was no problem with hunter Biden take fifty thousand dollars a month when he didn't know the first thing about the gas business needs not only looks bad what an idiot you know I beat you how can you be the son of the vice president of the United States and the fact that that's not going to cause some problems but I will say this if every kid of every politician or businessman who benefited because of who their father was it something criminal well there'll be a trail that's a very good that's true when Chelsea Clinton was paid those hundreds of thousands of dollars from NBC's today show involved for report in the air I put my foot yeah and then it is to do with their parents but. the bush is also went to work for at least Jenna bush yes is there yeah that that is a monopoly exit sign now was making its way under he is a nationally syndicated radio host so today Bloomberg is reporting that Rudy Giuliani may be in for some legal troubles of his own like violating the Logan act and it seems like he's kind of unraveling I last night he was on Laura Ingram show and he was just coming apart the seams so do you think the next phase yeah you think the next target is going to be Giuliani. well you know what I don't know if I'd say the next target but I'll tell you what you know Rudy's got some problems here I don't think the hatch act is his problem first well he's not a government employee and second of all nobody ever gets prosecuted under the hatch act no matter what they do Rudy's problem is if you paid attention today you may have noticed that the state department's group is ready but under a bus. because he was making his big fuss last night about how you know how I got into the show this phone you know I got into this because the state department called me and asked me to meet with those people with the state department today and by the way you could believe that if you were basing it on on that secretary Ontario who is just a routine out on the Sunday morning talk shows right the problem is the state department when they issued their statement they said Rudy Giuliani is the president's personal attorney he does not work with or for the state department so the only song okay who I think has to be more concerned than Rudy is secretary Pompeii out because if he's the silicates yes in any way acting on behalf of a president but still attending this for reasons that are an abuse of power and I'm using the word yeah does it remains to be seen then he may have some problems I think the Attorney General possibly tourney generals now in a really weird place because based on what the I'm calling it a memo was of the transcript what that had to say he's a witness now. get involved at all he is now a witness. as I guess regarding force lease ten minutes went by too fast how aggressive Democrats are in terms of hearings yeah the bill Barr has to be lucky he refused to testify just a couple months ago right was held in contempt and nothing happened so they have it again. he's part of the trump administration they all refused to testify under all helping content that we have to wait two years for the courts to move which is why this will be my last pitch you the federal courts of the United States specifically the Washington DC district must pass a new rule which they can do that says when there is a disagreement between the branches of the federal government all business before that court is stopped and that that matter between the branches is.

"Five the Rick Unger show. Welcome back to the reconquer show. What do you say, we hit the phones beginning with rich who's calling us from Chicago rich. Welcome to the program. What is on your mind today? Well, Rick, I want to say I really appreciate the show in the topics discussed. This election is this. You know, I'm getting close to sixty and I'm noticing a pattern I call it the one percent pattern and that is that it seems to be more on the right side of things that people will do one hundred one percent incremental things to try to push the election in there say they only have thirty percent of maybe the people that will constantly vote for them. So first thing is you need to get less than fifty percent of the people to vote, so you gotta dissuade or somehow make it seem like it's not worth it for you to do it, but then between caging putting one machine in a poor neighborhood and ten in a rich I mean, on and on the list is endless. But if you do one hundred one percent incremental things to shift in your direction the chances of you winning are one hundred percent. Rich, you put that so, well, I can't tell you and you bring something up that is absolutely worth. Mentioning, you know, I talked about how, how we are so dropping the ball for some obvious reasons when it comes to protecting our elections from foreign interference, but you're, you're raising another point. That is pretty critical. And that is how much is being done in this country right now to impact our elections within the United States. There is no question that there has been a drive underway for some time now to remove voter rights from we know who they're, they're not looking to take voter rights away from upper middle class, white people are they, we know how this is happening. And, you know, I don't care who you're four. I don't care who your candidate is. I don't care what party you belong to when you start selling out the most basic and I mean, V most basic of American ideals. We are in deep tr. A hundred percent. And there's, there's easy fixes like other countries, do I think I'll stralia does is just make boating mandatory you turn eighteen you're registered to vote, and you have to vote or there's a small fine. You know, make a day or holiday, where everybody goes devote. I don't know how diebold machines are able to work pretty well for us doing our banking. But somehow, we can't use them correctly. That win. Still baffles me. There's some easy fixes for this and we're not working toward that end. The foreign interference is just one more of these one percent incremental. Why would we wanna fix it if it benefits us? And if you look at any one thing that I said, if I talked to someone a normal conversation, I'm not saying that it's not normal with you, but people look at me, like a third eye or that I'm crazy by saying, well, simple thing like this can affect the election, but it's not just one simple thing. It's this collection of things that people are very cagey, and they'll puns intended to be able to manipulate it that way, you know, I mean, gerrymandering on and on. And you know, it's, it's so ridiculous because people just never. And I'm talking about all sides. But mostly Republicans, I gotta be, honest, people, people don't seem to realize that by winning in the short term, they are certainly going to lose in the long term. You know, if you come up with all of these tricks to, to push a certain result in election. Sinner later that is going to backfire on you, because the other side can do the same thing. I gotta tell you rich. You've got the right perspective on this. I hope that our country wakes up and realizes that support for a particular president. And again, I don't care if it's a democratic president or a Republican president is just not a reason to short circuit with this country is all about. There's gonna be a price to be paid for it. We have this tendency to think that every day that we're, we're alive is the greatest most important day in the history of our country. Well, it's not it's not. But when you start taking the collective actions that you are referring to we are seeing to it that, that day that is going to be grave in our history is gonna come rich really appreciate your comment. You made some great points. Thanks waterfall. Thank you. You know, before we go onto our next caller, I really do want to highlight the importance of what rich from Chicago was talking about we cannot afford to be short sighted, as we are, and get so wrapped up in our prefer party are preferred candidates that it becomes win at any cost. This will do more to destroy the entire American concept. Then almost anything that I can think of, and when you think about what's so troubles you about the times, we are living in. Isn't that really what it's about, look, we may not like the president's policies, but when you win elections, and he won the election. You get to put your policies into play that is not. I don't believe what makes people worry about what this president is doing to our nation's future. What makes us worry is the fact that all he cares about is his personal victories. All right. Let's grab another caller. We got Stephanie also from Chicago. Stephanie oil, welcome to the program. What's on your mind today? What's on my mind today is this war hospitable war? We can get into with Iran. My biggest problem is going to say the draft back like going back in history on a lot of things, you know, civil rights, women's rights. Are we going to go back to the draft again in order to? Big enough to find a rant if we're going. That's for someone who's a draft dodger. You know, I really can't see behind when he didn't go to wall himself. Yeah. That's, that's certainly a good point. I'll tell you what I seriously seriously doubt that we are going to go to war with Iran. So I mean look, I can certainly be proven wrong on that with this president, but I I don't see the upside. I don't see it happening and I don't see Iran doing anything to draw us into one. I don't see where it benefits them. I know it does not benefit us and ask for the draft. That's an interesting question. If we were to get to the point where where we were short on military folks when we return to the draft. It's disgust. I know it's not a popular notion, but I guess we'd have to wait and see, but your, your point is certainly, well made that how ironic would it be that somebody who avoided the draft by saying what bone Spurs, in his, and then he couldn't remember which we had them in? Yeah. That would be a very.

"Step outside the norm. Rational radio the Rick Unger show. All right. Welcome back to the Rick under Showtime do dip into some of the calls. Let's see we got Richard who's columnist from Chicago. Richard welcome to the program. What is on your mind? Well, I actually called the White House today and talked to one of the volunteers very politely volunteers, and I called up about the latest of Trump abuse of power going after the Representative Representative Omar from Minnesota calling an anti Semite and thinking back to watching, you know, with my own eyes people at his rallies going new media to replace his and not single word that I heard other him to send level of of tax against a Representative Omar directed at these people his rally so for him to join this disgrace and use of his office just be golfing Dowling. Ornstein whereas other than going after really good at the end. Well, they've to keep them. You know, he's gotta keep in practice. This. Just do all the time. Now, I I hear you, Richard. And I gotta ask you d mind sharing. What your religion is? Well, I am. I am two quarters to have been exterminated. I'm one hundred percent Jewish and I share the same thing. You know, we we spoke about it. Obviously earlier on the program. I didn't like some of the initial comments that congresswoman Omar made that you know, I just thought they were unnecessary over the top. But as I read I read her apology on the air few minutes ago. And I bought that completely. I thought she was being sincere. I also know some people who are Jewish who live in her district, and they do not view her as antisemitic in any way, shape or form. I think it was a matter of her needing needing to gain some experience, some understanding, and I think she did this latest blow up though, and where where she said what she said in that speech in front of it was so taken out of context, and it was so over the top in terms of the response and what the president. Did was outrageous. It just was unbelievable. I don't know what gets into his mind. The one thing. I know that's not in his mind is he just doesn't grasp the fact that he's supposed to be the president of all Americans. No matter where they come from. No matter what their religious background is. He just can't deal with that hocus groups to find out who who is vulnerable and what's going revolt by that? They just hone in on it. Maybe constantly do it. And we we we. Why? Is an ac- represent of our topic. Every five minutes, you know, the is trying to set the stage trying to brand these people that they think that are totally political strategy to get at them eventually. I agree. Yeah. We'll let it go there. Yeah. I think he made Richard. Okay. Thank you very much Bye-bye. All right. Let's grab one of your tax from CJ in Richfield, Minnesota CJ rights on Trump's plans for migrants. It seems like this administration has a plan, and whatever that plan is the only way we're going to find out is after the plan has been implemented a year from now between the congress and the Senate they need to be more up front about what their plans are CJ. I really have to disagree with you. The problem is is that nobody has a plan for these migrants. Not congress, not Democrats in congress, not Republicans in congress and most assuredly not the president the president's only plan so far as I can see is to come up with things to say on Twitter that he thinks will appeal and bring joy to his base. But it's there's no rational plant here. I mean, if you're seeing something that even resembles when I would love you to tweet. It in and share that with us because man, I just don't see it. And I'm not letting Democrats off the hook for too long, congressional Democrats and congressional Republicans have failed to come up with a reasonable immigration policy. They all are to blame on this one of the reasons for it. Well, there's a number of reasons for it. First of all each side thinks that their side of the issue plays. Well, politically, if you're a Republican, and you are quote, tough on immigration, meaning that we we don't want to let anybody else into this country. Sorry, we're closed as the president would say, we are Phil we are filled up. We are full. That's what the president says it will if you're on that side of the issue. There's a pretty good chance that we're ever you come from your congressional district. They like hearing that kind of talk. So you don't want to resolve a problem that takes away such a great campaign issue for you. If you are on the other side of the political aisle, and you're showing sympathy and humanitarian care for those who are trying to escape a difficult situation. We'll maybe you don't wanna get into the compromise. That would likely be required. Either it takes both sides. And then it takes a president to sign anything that congress could come up with into law. None of these participants have shown a willingness for a very long time now to actually make an immigration policy that will solve this issue. Do something that will understand the needs and the problems being faced by those who are seeking asylum and the limitations we may have as a country in accommodating those needs. Now, you have heard me say this before if it were me I would. Would be looking school wehrley at the organization of American states. This body has been in business for years long long long time, and this is what they are supposed to be doing. We should be convening the OAS organization of American states. We should be sitting there with our central and southern and northern American neighbors, and we should be approaching this issue like grown-ups not grown up with a political axe to grind not grownups looking for a way to get a political advantage. Just grown-ups who want to help people in need and solve a problem. I've said it a million times not everybody who feels the need to escape the difficulties of their lives in primarily those three countries on Duracell, Salvador and Guatemala. They don't all have to come to the United States, but you have to gather this body, you have to gather these countries together and approach it like grown-ups who can do what for these people? That is the only way. All right. That's all the time. We've got for this hour just a reminder that you can find us online at Rick hunger, show dot com. You can follow us on Twitter.

"To the Rick Unger program. Let's let's take a few of your phone call. See, what's on your mind? Let's go to Paul who's calling us from Las Angeles. Paul welcome to the program. What's on your mind? Hey, rick. How you doing you love the new show, by the way? I have a question on universal healthcare, which obviously everyone they're talking about. And there are several systems in certain hybrids that have been suggested from, you know, Medicare for all just a straight single payer system. My question is on the other side is regarding the doctors, I understand we have like a million doctors or something like that in America. And it seems to me that it's already as we speak with no new Medicare for all system. Just the existing Medicare for over sixty five folks. Lots and lots of doctors and United States are not willing to take pay cuts because of this because of the reimbursement rate that Medicare pays them back in obviously a lot of them refused to take insurance at all. Now, they're moving to what they call this. Here's Dr phenomenon. How how do we expect to change the system when our doctors are so well compensated that they're you know, they're all in the top one or two percent? I'm sure the country. How do we get them to accept less money? Take a less a lifestyle, unless perhaps, maybe we sub the government subsidizes medical school, and sort of owns the doctor, and therefore they'll take less. I mean, there's there's a lot in there there really is you make a great point. I mean, obviously, if you move to a Medicare for all system, we do know that Medicare pays doctors at a lower rate than the private insurance companies do clearly for anything to be arrived upon in congress that moves us in that direction. They're gonna have to deal with the doctors, the expectation is if you look at some of the studies that have been done as to what it will cost to switch to that kind of a program. You see that there are allowances made for paying higher rates to doctors that's going to have to happen. And we're going to have to. Take that into consideration as we figure out. All right. What's the cost issue that arises, what are the issues that arise when you move to this kind of a system the other side of that? Of course is the point out that, hey, if you wanna be a doctor, then if we have a Medicare for all type of system, you're going to have to live with it. Because all of your patients are going to be insured in that way. So you can be one of the very few doctors who have wealthy patients and become a concierge, doctor just say, I'm no longer taking insurance. Sorry. This is what the Bill is going to be. If you can't pay it, then I'm the wrong person for you. There will be some of that. But by and large it tends to divide up really amongst what kind of medicine you practice. If you're a cardiologist. You're not going to be able to say no to Medicare for all. Most of your patients are seniors. You've already been taking Medicare right because that's who comes to see you. Now, if you're a dermatologist, it might be a little bit different. So I think in many ways that will sort it out. But. Thank you can expect to see part of any deal. That's made will include higher rates for physicians that help. Absolutely. I hope you're right. I don't know how you get around it. I mean, they're going to have a voice at the table. So I think you're going to see it. But one of the point I'll I'll let you run. I grew up in Australia where you know, it's been touted as Canada. And then either European countries is one was socialized medicine for all which is basically a single payer system. But unlike I don't think most people know that for that matter, Canada, France and all the big countries that are supposedly touted for that wonderful systems. They're only five seventy to seventy five percent. There is still the rest twenty five to thirty percent is paid by private insurance fund. So I don't know if that's ever been brought up to the public and sort of out there. Most people think oh, well, it's paid for they pay for everything which is sort of the Bernie thing he pays for no deductibles. No. Nothing. You just you know, you know, no co-pay you get it all that's not necessarily true in most of the other countries around the world. And as we were talking about with Dr Zeke Emanuel on the last segment, that's probably going to be the case here. Look, you do have Bernie Sanders out there pitching for the idea of ending insurance companies. You know, that's not happening. It's just not going to happen. There will be options for people if we get to a more universal type of a system, it's not going to be one. I don't believe in Zeke, certainly doesn't believe that that omits insurance why because insurance is just way too powerful, but industry, politically it's never been able to happen before it's not gonna be able to happen now. So you craft this kind of a system as you mentioned Australia, by the way has done a good job of blending the public and the private you craft the system in a way where there is a role for the private insurance companies certainly the role that they very much like is Medicare Advantage. I think that's really where they're making. A lot of their money these days, well that can continue to exist in a in a universal healthcare system. So I think that's where that gets resolved. Appreciate the call Paul. All right. Let's take Andrew who's calling us from Oakland, California. Lots of California today. Andrew welcome to the program. What's on your mind? Yeah. Hi. Thanks. Yeah. I was wanted to talk about the the green new deal because okay? The basically solar and wind really can't aren't sufficient in order to supply all the energy needs for the United States you'd have to cover. I think the calculation is like the state of California would have to be covered in solar panels. Right. Just apply all energy, you know, that we use now with coal petroleum. So I really think nuclear we have to have a clean nuclear program, and there are designed for nuclear plants that don't meltdown and actually use the waste radioactive waste is generated by the current nuclear power plants as fuel. If we put the research and design into these new designs from nuclear plants, I think that may be the solution. But as it stands, they're not putting that kind of money into that kind of research. Yeah. I it's an interesting point of view, you know, obviously nuclear power, it's an emotional issue. Anybody who was around when Three Mile Island just about blew up is afraid of it to be sure we're aware of the nuclear plants, which are south of Los Angeles those had to be taken off line. So as it stands right now. It feels it feels like we've never really gotten to complete surely that if you build a nuclear power plant that it's going to be okay. We also know what happened in Japan, of course, after they were hit by a big wave. So. Yeah. I mean, if if it's there if there is a way that the research can be done and the model can be built where you can make fail-safe nuclear power plants. I think you can sell that to the American people on. Does become a viable way to have much cleaner energy. Appreciate the call and the information Andrew I'll be keeping an eye out for all of this. That is all the time. We have for this hour, a reminder, you can find this online at Rick under show dot com. You can follow us on Twitter at.
