Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it

Elena, former President, Harvard I can't. Yeah s o. We're gonna pare that down to a normal number. In anything resembling a world of sanity. The answer would be yes. Unfortunately, we're in a world where the Democrats have control of both houses. The chances of the house doing that, I think are zero. I think Pelosi Will crack the whip, but everyone will fall in line and the Senate We're 50 50. And so this, like so many other things for the next two years comes down to Joe Manchin. Listen, I third with Joe for eight years, and he's a very nice guy. He's affable. Everyone likes Joe. It's It's hard not to like Joe. Um His history in the Senate is that his rhetoric is quite moderate. And yet, in the time I've served in the Senate, I cannot think of a single time he had stood up to Chuck Schumer. On any issue of consequence when it made a difference. In other words, the sort of joke among Republicans is that mansion will sometimes vote with us when it's not the deciding vote. But At least if past is prologue he hasn't done. So when it is the deciding vote. I hope that changes I would love to see Joe Rest back on on humor, and Pelosi and Biden but The I don't know. Sumer has some screws or a medieval rack in his office. But At least in the past, Democratic senators have been unwilling to cross Schumer and they enforce strict party discipline. The Republicans Look, I'm gonna vote no on this monstrosity, but if they hold their 50 Democrats and Kamila Harris, they will get it through and point out there.

Student Loan Forgiveness: Democrats Debate How Much To Cancel
"Five million americans have student debt and president biden has promised to do something about that. He's proposed cancelling up to ten thousand dollars per borrwer. Democrats in congress are pushing for more though fifty thousand dollars per person. Here's npr's listen Joe biden has made it clear one point six trillion dollars in federal student. Debt is a problem but the question of how much of it to cancel is still on the table. Let's take a look at the plan. The president supports cancelling ten thousand dollars in debt per borrower or. Who have the lowest suit deaths are the ones who struggle the most adam. Looney is an economist. At the university of utah he says not all debt is the same borrowers who completed. A bachelor's often have higher debt burdens but are able to pay that debt back. The ones really struggling are the ones in default. When you're in default government can take your tax refund part of your paycheck when you get older. You can even lose part of your social security. Roughly eight million borrowers are in default and most of them have less than ten thousand dollars in debt. The amount that you borrow is largely dependent on how many years you will often students who drop out after a semester or a year or two just on accumulate very much dead. If you never got that degree you can't get a job to help pay off that debt. Looney argues that anything higher than ten thousand cancellation runs. The risk of awarding borrowers. Who don't need help. He points to research that shows thirty. Six percent of student debt is owned by the top twenty percent of income holders but income is different than wealth household was student debt. Tend to have the least amount of wealth. That's the value of all your assets minus debt. Now let's take a look at the plans to cancel fifty thousand dollars in student at senators elizabeth warren and chuck schumer among those behind. This idea. they say a more forgiving cancellation policy is also about racial justice. And would target gaps in wealth especially among black families. Black households are more likely to have student debt and more of it than white or latino families. The debt crisis in is dish. Proportionally impacting borrowers of color and communities of color. Black borrowers in particular ashleigh harrington the senior policy counsel at the center for responsible lending. So when we talk about cancelation we have to start their black borrowers. She says can struggle even if they get their degree. Thanks to racism. In the labor market more debt cancellation would give them a up. You have families were the color who have never been able to build wealth. They don't have intergenerational wealth fender having intergenerational deck many black and latino families missed out on ways to build wealth in the past like homeownership and job training programs due to racist policies researchers who study and talk to student. Loan borrowers say now student. Loan debt is thing. That's holding them back in a forthcoming report. The center for responsible lending black borrowers. Who would have all of their debts. Raced at fifty thousand was forgiven. Have median assets worth just seventy six thousand dollars in most cities. That's not even a house and of course there's the pandemic we are in the list of a crisis it and so we're for the place where count out. Inauguration gonna cut it regardless of the dollar figure most advocates. For cancelling say the thing that makes it so appealing is it can be done by the president through executive action without congress. President biden has long said he'd prefer to use legislation but in early february. The white house signaled it was willing to consider doing it with the flick of a pen.

"I wanted to ask you about stand up again. If you don't mind know what i didn't tell you earlier is that i had no intention of going into comedy ever and i think the reason why landed in an is probably because my face betrays me my facial expressions are much larger than i intend for them to be right.

I've had to learn how to lie because i'm very impulsive and honest. So are you a good like poker player. I am a good poker player. I believe that. Actually i really do. Are you a good poker player. i'm not. I only enjoy things that i'm good at. Which really limits my life. No that's chris to. He wants to be like the best at something. He loves competing but he wants to be the best. I don't like competing. But i can't help myself. I am a competitive person. I think because. I grew up so short i was really short. Kid oh really yeah. It was kinda my identity and i had a lot of dental work. Amy oh god okay see. That's why you're so funny and talented. Because you had a hard moment. Yeah oh my god..

Because i think i had been immature partner in previous relationships. Yeah i do know because it's easy. I mean i'm projecting but lake. It just made me laugh at all my previous relationships. I just read kazzee. David's book which is so funding is called. Nobody asked for this. She's in her twenties and just like those relationships where you're just much younger in your hope. He text meal like one. Am like come over or something. You're like okay. I'm dating this guy. And he says he's not ready for me to meet his mom yet but like maybe by new year just all these allowances when you're younger and then you're like get outta here like i'm tired but we just didn't have that we were just ready to rock. There has been relief and getting older hell and maybe because our brains are melting slowly so death is easier. Good hurry it up. But i think that one of the benefits for me is that i think i used to be a much more jealous competitive person without even re- well no. I realized that. I think those are terrible. Feelings saw that sucks. That's the worst. Feeling is the worst fee that chemical feeling is just so bad. Yeah i don't have that anymore. And i'm so grateful i know because what a toxic thing to do to yourself. Yeah i also think. I was more competitive relationships to interesting. Yeah well you know. I was with two actors and of course in our industry. You can't help but compare successes and failures and yeah. No one's above that owns beyond that. I would like to be amy. Yeah i didn't do well with dating people in the same industry. I mean that to me is like the dream you know. It's like oh to data comic. Or whatever but i didn't have success with that and i feel like for me. I wouldn't want to be in a relationship with a performer. Your identity with motherhood a year and a half in what. I'm trying to do and i love that question. Is i realized early in a way where unexpectedly i was like. Oh he's already like his own dude like he's his own person and i'm just here to support his growth you know and so just really trying to make sure that it's not about me and then i'm focused in on him and i'm just trying to navigate like we can communicate now a little bit you know and he knows some signs and he has some words so it's like he'll start to get really upset and i go. We'll do you want to take your wagging into the living room. And he you know he just wants to communicate and so like early stages of just figuring out how to do it like okay. We're home. We're going to wash our hands. Oh can you climb up your own stairs. Wash your hands. Like and then celebrating that genie's washing his hands like a big. You know seeing what's working. What dozen but it just trying to not take myself too seriously while we navigated and chris and i mess up so bad that we just support each other like if he falls or something while he was kind of. Chris's watch or chris's jurisdiction. It's my job to be like chris. Because if i do something you feel so bad that you need your partner to be like okay like shake it off. 'cause he's fine he bounces back but it's like the terror of them hurt is like we're trying to have fun. Really appreciate it. Be present completely. One of the irksome things of being pregnant is the societal pressure of like don't eat salami array rate the watchfulness over your body which is now fucking vessel disgusting..

On in the Philippines which is really funny 'cause we're like Jane don't don't go changing on us now. Don't I can't. I can't. She's a fulltime student. Which is funny. 'cause. So were you know were with gene till till one every day and then And then he sleeping in, you know she can t tap in out. But so we really had to film the show and he was napping and when she didn't class and so it's just like. If you wakes up. He's going to be on the show. And he's bound the show. Number. Jane. Is a very good audience member. She's good with the camera to say better better with the camera. And and she is a good laugher which I appreciate because we watch we all hang out we've dinner and watch TV every night and No most of my jokes crystallised ignored I'll get. You're already this early in the marriage already at the point where your husband is just not even acknowledging the jokes because it comes for all of us we know that. Chris's on the spectrum and I have some learning disabilities, and so we both like we'll just it's hard to get either of us to listen sometimes to laugh like a long time after I say something because it's a sort of hit him. Yeah it's good. It teaches you to learn a new timing time release humor is good. He's sort of plant the seed in it develops and grows flowers later So are you actually getting any better at cooking? Like is the objective here to become a good cook or do you say I live with a chef I don't really need to know how to cook. Well, we're in for this. Endemic and this television show ever would've learned how to cook but I have learned. A lot of you know I'm not a great chef now but I I know how to cook a lot more than I did. So I really don't have any excuse at night I used to be like. Okay, well, I guess you better start making dinner and I'll just go kind of look on the computer. All right. What can I do? Do she this year meet Sushi. We learn how to make Sushi. Really intimidating me, but actually posted a picture the other day of. Chris's role versus Nairobi. But I've gotten a lot better that believe it or not I'm pretty confident and now Christner, we're making Sushi next each other. And it just looks like we're you know opening a restaurant. So what's your Go-to dish if I said big dinner tonight at Your House Amy is making what? I would have to say skirt skirt steak match. Mashed potatoes. That's it. That's my staple but I can make other things now and sometimes Chris will like put a couple pots on forgot about it. And and then I will pick up where he left off thinking. Oh, I think he meant to. These. Kind guests, but it works we complement each other and. It's translating to the kitchen. I think the reason it works is because it feels real. We were talking before we came on there so much that likes to tell you that it's real but like almost everything you do I do you feel like you're watching you being you him being him ignoring you occasionally you mix up a few drinks because that's what you do well, and like the feels like an actual window, your house is it.

I like you know also not seeing anyone at all. This forever. I think a lot of people have discovered that about themselves like, oh, I kind of like this a little too much or at least more than I thought I would. Just. Drinking home. So I mentioned the cooking. Let's talk about Amy Schumer learns to Cook. You've got a great partner on the show. Obviously, your husband Chris is a chef. I also love the show that you call him chef. It's very formal. You know chef would you pass me? So. How did the idea for that show come to pass? Network totally called in if we wanted to do it. I'd like to take credit for I was like we wanted to entertain the masses during this. Horrific time but really it was. A reached out and pitched it and we said, yes, right away we were like this'll be cool and it was an opportunity to. Is the ourselves and and somehow pure people's homes to. Be of any sort of comfort. That felt like a real. A real opportunity that we were privileged to have what? Chris think about the idea that he's now roped into your universe of being on. TV and performing in some way. No, he's like so down or whatever you said. Yes. Right away to he was never nervous just. Like he's he's been. Higher pressure situations probably that. You were I will ever understand just with his upbringing on Martha's vineyard and being a farmer and. BILLING WITH Animals and processing them. You know he's just. He was like, yeah, let's Great. Let's do it. You know just no no hesitation. He's good too. If you've pretty calm natural on camera. Don't you? Berkeley Oregon where a good team. We're good. We're good. Duo has. Like just you know I just make jokes and he just doesn't laugh at them. It's like a truce. Great man. He is and just the Serb practical questions around doing a show like this in the time of Corona virus, and he can't have a bunch of people in a crew in your house.

"My thanks as always we're clicking and listening along. As you know we've been sprinkling in to some of our favorite conversations over the last couple of years that we've been reposting new conversations that I've done for Sunday today on NBC over Zoom? So while we can't be in the same room with people since back in March we're still talking to him from my house to there's and this week I got a really good one. I. Think you're going to enjoy with Amy Schumer one of the funniest people I think on the face of the earth. And Smart and interesting to talk to, and she's got a ton going on right now she's up with her husband, Chris and her fifteen month old son Jean there up at their house and they've just been hanging out since March. Not doing much except putting out another season of her show, which is called Amy Schumer. Learns to Cook it's on the Food Network her husband Chris Fisher is a farmer and eight acclaimed chef He comes from Martha's vineyard where he grew up and worked on a farm. They're married now the fifteen month old son in their show a shot during quarantine with their own cameras, and as you'll hear, their nanny, their babysitter who's up there with them she's filming the show and it's cooking show. So this great chef Chris is teaching his wife Amy who's not such a great chef how to cook she also had out just a couple of weeks ago on Hbo Max Series Expecting Amy which documented in vivid detail we were laughing saying all these shows that call themselves raw and unfiltered usually aren't raw or unfiltered, but this really is I mean, she shows all of it how difficult to pregnancy pregnancy can be. And It's all in there you know and she strips it down shows it. She talks about it. So she was pregnant with Jean having a very difficult pregnancy all while out on a forty two city sixty show tour. So that means sometimes she's doing a couple of shows night while she was very, very pregnant still working hard so I think. You'll enjoy this conversation on a lot of levels funny but also deep an interesting and probably relatable to MOMS and a lot of women out there who've been pregnant or who are struggling with going back to work a really great conversation right now on the Sunday, sit down podcast with Amy Schumer. Amy, thanks for doing this. Great to see you. So, let's talk about first quarantine even doing a lot of cooking I know you've been hanging out with gene Chris an awful lot how the last few months been for you. Really.

It's so exhausting to see a talented funny person trying so hard to be hot like we. We all know you're trying so hard to be hot. It's embarrassing for everybody. I got my lesson early. On which is when I got announced as the guy who was gonna take over the late night in ninety three which is now seven hundred years ago. The first thing I read about myself as well. NBC has made an interesting choice here and they may have made a smart move. He's got good comedy credentials because he worked on the simpsons and starting at live and he doesn't. Have you know they didn't pick pretty clearly didn't pick a pretty boy for the role. And every time I get hurt. My feelings I was kind of. Like. Why'd you have to say that? No, they always need a disclaimer there like she's round and cuddly looking. You know or on your why these words and I mean whatever they say. And now, but now they've got like a site. Daily Mail. You know they'll be like Olivia. Wilde stuns in her sweatshirt. You know just like some word that they attached to it. And then they're like an Amy Schumer walks with her stroll. But, that's the thing with like all your sort of as a woman is a lot of your worth. You know it's changing which is cool, but it's determined a lot. How attractive you are and. I wrote my college thesis on this about the the male gaze in how all the movies we saw would be like the slow pan up from the woman's. He'll and know. You're watching that as a woman like this isn't how I see a woman. Walk in the room, you know. I didn't know that you wrote a thesis on that. Yeah Yeah I mean. Why would you know that? I realize you're like my teacher Oh my college where I know I like to read. A I'm always fascinated when someone writes thesis because I wrote a thesis, and it took almost broke my brain, and it ruined my senior year and. Went to Harvard right? Yeah, you're doing a commencement speech for Harvard Tomorrow Yea I doing it for the the college. They have A. They have a university speech and they have a college speech, so I already taped it and I guess it drops. No one ever says that no one says Hey Mike Commencement speech for Harvard. Tomorrow! Now I get to say. That would have been a perfect place to get beef you should have. You could have planted a seed, or you could open yourself up to get troll vice something he said in your speech I didn't play it to saying I did. Yeah. I didn't have the pressure on me that you had, but my my thesis. It was talking about the the female gaze in a in a lot of the the female characters in books and movies that we were exposed to an. You know I mean the male gaze how it was. Just all you know from like something like Madam Bovery to. Citizen Kane whatever it was like it all. It was all like an and we didn't grow up. Seeing men sexualize very much know it was never like if anything that became a joke. You know that's it's. It's very different. If you you know when you're like licking your hand on your nipple, if I do that, it's like a very different thing. It's so hot if I do. It is what I'm saying. You know eating through. I was meeting it to be hot, so I don't know why you I'm sorry. No, it is yeah. No, it's so hot! It's so hot! Take your hand away from your mouth it's. Thing when I I, just yeah I thought you were vomiting. Crazy. It's so it's so. It's so funny, too, because we just happened to be living in this moment that really it's like an. It's a blip, but walk through any art museum in Europe Walk Through the roof and the ideal of beauty or the of beauty has changed so. Much at he used to be me. It used to be me guys what happened. Know what I'm saying. Is it's it's only recently that women have seems to me only recently that the ideal has now shifted into being ripped for awhile is being super skinny like crazy, spin, men or for women. And I think now for guys. It's almost. I. Mean I'm glad the dad bod`ed seems to be something that dad bought his it. Is fully well, also you know ninety five percent of all of the art hanging in the whole world is by way. Men in all the museums, and that is your fault. It's my rule. It's it is your little, and we will respect it. You know when I go to an art museum and this is a bit of a this has gotten me in some trouble, but I do always say excuse me before I go in. This is art by white men. Right? And they're always like and I'm like. A week, a clear on that upfront and You don't want to waste. Your is time. That's what I heard. You've been quoted as saying.

Something that just occurred to me and let's say that gene wants to get into comedy someday. You may not even have thought about this. I have I have. It's weird. I don't want my kids feelings to ever be hurt and so I don't like the idea of any of my kids being in show business or especially in comedy, which is so brutal and I've told my therapist and I've told people why wouldn't want them to get hurt and they say. Isn't that funny because you've clearly? Don't you like yourself you've you've you've been torn to shreds a million times? Why War! Why are you guys I? Mean I feel the same as you I think? And I think I. Think Jean is so funny like I think he got that thing. Like listen, he's one. Every parent probably feels way but I think he has like a funny comedy face Vibe, but I mean in my personal experience and the experience of most people I know. The reason you get really funny is because you have a pretty bad life. I mean that's the truth like. I I think you know you can have a natural ability in. You can be really funny Seinfeld is an exception to this because he he always like claims that he's had like a good life I believe him. but everyone else. I know I'd like a pretty tough childhood and you know family drama. Every sports doc. You're like Lemme. Gus was his dad hard on him. Yeah, yeah, yeah, winning! But that's it's funny. You bring that up because I thought the same thing about Seinfeld and this is going to be a weird. This your teeth. No, no, no, this is a weird connection to make, but they always say that all serial killers fit a profile except for one ted. Bundy Ted Bundy was incredibly sociable and charming, and could really connect with people, and that doesn't fit any of the profiles for serial killer, and in the same way of and people are like. Wow, he's a real outlier. No one can figure out Ted Bundy, and I've always thought. And this is this is no offense to to Jerry Seinfeld you. He's a murderer I think he's the Ted Bundy of comedy..

Twenty nine cases total but I think people are more afraid here than they were in Manhattan. which is you know So you know people were really freaking out here and we're like okay, but we're.
