Fresh update on "schumer" discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek

"Washington D.C. we go. And Nancy Lyon, say there Nats. Thanks, Tim. Plenty of pomp and circumstance today as President Biden meets with French president Emmanuel Macron, Macron ahead of today's meeting had expressed concerns about America's recently passed inflation reduction act offering green energy subsidies. He feels that will siphon investment away from Europe. Today, he sounded satisfied that the U.S. is willing to talk about it. We agreed to re synchronize our approaches on genders in order to invest in critical emerging industries, semiconductors, batteries, hydrogen, everything that is absolutely decisive because as a matter of fact, we share the same vision. Again, Macron speaking through an interpreter. With a December 9th rail strike deadline quickly approaching senator Chuck Schumer says he's working to pass the two measures approved yesterday by the house. One implements a tentative deal reached earlier this fall, another would provide 7 days of paid sick leave. I support paid sick leave. My democratic colleague support paid sick leave, and we want to see it included in the package. We hope some of our Republican colleagues will join us. Schumer says forcing workers to choose between their health and their livelihood is unacceptable. Republicans are not expected to support expanding sick leave benefits. Today, the Supreme Court says it will hear arguments on President Biden's student debt forgiveness program in February, but says it will block its rollout until then. At the World Cup, underway right now, Japan leads Spain two to one and Germany just scored and is now ahead of Costa Rica three to two.

At a news conference alongside his visiting French counterpart, the president said he's not interested in speaking with the Russian leader. I have no immediate plans to contact mister Putin But mister Biden clarified, he would engage in talks if Vladimir Putin were intent on discussing an end to the war. If that's the case, it consultation with my friendship and my NATO Friends. I'll be happy to sit down with Putin to see what he wants has in mind. French president Emmanuel Macron said he would speak with the Russian leader to discuss the safety of nuclear power plants. Stephen portnoy, CBS News Washington.

We're seeing new numbers on inflation. The government's personal consumption expenditure index the preferred inflation gauge of the Federal Reserve rose 6% in October from a year earlier down from 6.3% in September. The core rates dripping out volatile food and gas prices also grew at a weaker pace, and that's key for the fed, which is worried about inflation getting sticky across a range of categories, like rent, medical care, and other services. The report will be a factor in the fed's meeting this month and odds are leaning heavily on Wall Street for a half percentage point rate hike at the meeting. CBS is Jason Brooks reporting.

"You know some of you might be wondering although I haven't heard it but you might be wondering Mark why are you so frustrated and unhappy with these 5 conservatives Who are saying they won't vote from McCarthy Folks There's two reasons for this One is they don't have anybody to defeat McCarthy This is all drama And if they screw up you could wind up with a Democrat speaker Or a speaker who's incredibly moderate with a few of the moderate disloyal Republicans throwing in with the Democrats So it's a stupid game to play when you have no plan B number two an equally if not more important This lame duck session is dangerous Mitch McConnell is working with Schumer to try and push through a massive omnibus spending bill and then a massive debt ceiling increase with the support of the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal This is what he does I know what he does This is what he does So while these 5 are stirring the pot and telling us they're going to get some really great concessions from McCarthy while I'd better They sure as hell better They want some of the chairmanship and committees All this inside baseball crap means nothing to me

Steve Cortes: The American People Know We're in a Recession

"Is in a really tough spot. I believe that they played some games with the fed over the summer and early fall to cushion the blow ahead of the midterms. I think that everyone knows that we're in a recession, but I think there was some games also done, obviously with the strategic petroleum reserve to try to get gas prices a little more manageable because Steve, this midterm election should have been much more focused on the economy than it was, right? I mean, it shouldn't be a four seat majority. It should be a 40 seat majority given the economic catastrophe we're living through. Yes. And by the way, to that point of whether or not we're in a recession, according to CNN polling, not exactly a right wing organization. 75% of the American people say that we are in a recession right now. So the American people know this. People on Main Street regular folks know that we are in a recession. You know, whatever academic debates, the corporate media and The White House want to engage in the American people know where we are. They know where things are in their own lives. They know that real wages, meaning your income adjusted for the things you need to buy in your life, real wages have declined for 19 consecutive months. That is the worst streak in all of American history. You are working harder to get poorer every single month. And the American people clearly know that. To your point about the fed, look, the Federal Reserve is every bit as complicit in creating this inflationary madness as is Joe Biden and the Congress, you know, particularly Schumer and Pelosi. All of them share in the blame here. Now the fed I will at least say this to its credit. It seems to have found religion, but very conveniently largely after the midterm elections. So for example, just this past weekend, the president of the St. Louis fed bullard made some very aggressive comments about how much the fed needs to raise interest rates to try to rein in this inflationary madness that the fed fed chief themselves helped to create. Now, he's very late, but better late than never. And I think the fed finally has come to grips with the crisis that they help to create. And

And we'll continue to strong support for people in Ukraine as they defend their homes and their families. And their sovereignty and territorial integrity against Russian aggression, which has been incredibly brutal. Through an interpreter, president Macron also addressed the 9 month war. The Russian war effort is very much targeting the civilian infrastructure, bringing even more violence to try and make the Ukrainian people desperate. Russian troops have been targeting key infrastructure lately, knocking out access to power, water, and heat ahead of what's expected to be a brutal winter in Ukraine. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer says the Senate can not leave until a complete work on legislation to avoid a crippling rail strike, but CBS Scott mcfarlane tells us the Senate has no timetable on voting.

Biden tells GOP his hopes, gets stiff response from McCarthy

"President Biden says he's hoping both parties can work together on several issues as the GOP prepares to take house control. After the president hosted each party's top two lawmakers, chief Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer came out of The White House enthused. There was goodwill in the room. The president says he'd like both parties to join forces on keeping the government open, helping you crane and avoiding a freight rail strike. And we're going to find other areas of common ground I hope because the American people want us to work together. The top House Republican Kevin McCarthy says they also want something else. I think America likes to check and balance, saying that's why Democrats lost the house. And the man had lined to be its next speaker is serving notice. Come January. I think the administration got a indication is going to be different. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

Hopefully it is not that high of percentage of people that are just horrible beyond any partisan labels. Yeah, absolutely. And I think that that percentage of horrible people, there's a percentage of that that are crazy, you know, that are incapacitated in many ways. And then there's a percentage of that that I think had they not been given permission, a permission structure by Trump. Had they not been the head bully in chief who made bullying and kindness, you know, bullying is a good thing and kindness is the enemy. In general, civility is a problem. Like they wouldn't behave that way. Yeah. You know, I don't know what would happen in their hearts, but they wouldn't behave that way.

No, I don't think I'm going to be wrong directionally because I do believe that the house takeover is practically a certainty. And I think the Senate take over by the GOP is still likely. But yes, I overstated in my projections. I believe, for example, the setup is going to get to 54. I do think we're going to get to 52. We'll see in the coming days. But yes, I was too optimistic and part of that Dennis is my background, of course, is in finance as a financial marks for 25 years on Wall Street and a trader for some of the biggest heights funds in the world. And when I look at the economic situation right now, how dire it is, the absolute mess that Joe Biden has made of this economy with this complicit Democrat runs on Capitol Hill. I thought that was enough to produce a really outsized way as it turns out it wasn't. It was enough to produce a reversal and that's important again. I also think that there's a little too much mashing of teeth and wringing of hands right out on the right. We didn't do as well as we wanted, but we are taking power. We are going to take back the apple away from Nancy Pelosi and all likelihood. I think we're going to take the majority of leader status away from Chuck Schumer. That is to be celebrated while at the same time being for a second about what we did right and did want in this election.

I think that if we could get to around 35 seats, 36 seats, something like that to your point would be the largest majority that we've had in 90 years on the Republican side. Conservatively, I feel good about 15 to 20 seats, but the potential is there. And you know, I look at things right before we right before we came on, I was looking at a story that had posted on The Wall Street Journal website, headline is GOP gaining support among black and Latino voters. And that's true. And especially, I look at some of our candidates nationwide. Who are Latino, we elected a fair number in 2000 and 20 and in special elections with my Flores. We've got a number of minority candidates and Latino candidates who are running on the Republican side who are espousing the same conservative values that we talk about every day. So it's not, it's not one, it's not one sided, it's not monolithic. We are all talking about the issues that people are concerned about. The inflation, the economy, crime and the border. I mean, those are those are the top issues. That's what people, that's what people want to see solutions about and they certainly haven't seen it over these past two years under the realm of Pelosi and Schumer and Biden.

Why the GOP Needs to Take the Senate

"The Senate is extremely important when you're trying to bring an administration to account. The house is important. I served in the house. I believe I'm a man of the house. I believe that the house has a great deal of power to investigate. It has the power of the purse. But the reality when it comes to some of these issues that are being done by the Biden administration when it comes to judges when it comes to reconciliation when it comes to these issues that, you know, if they just stick together, even at a 50 50 with a vice president of time, they can make major changes to policy in our country and we've already seen that. So you take away that ability in the Senate and then things get a lot tougher for Biden administration to put through because remember they're not putting things through because they're bipartisan. They're putting things through because they have the reconciliation. Option available to them, which allows them to have a majority in the House, which they're going to lose. So they won't have that anymore. But even if the first miracle was pulled off in the end the Democrats kept the house, they're not going to have the partnership in the Senate to if they can find all 50 senators staying together. Then they're not going to be able to, they could push things through that they normally wouldn't get to push through without that 50 50 split without the majority. It means that Republicans will control the agenda in the Senate and that means that anything from Supreme Court Justices to district court and circuit court. That train will stop. And you'll see a lot of that happening in a month of December coast. If Schumer loses majority, he'll do everything he possibly can to do as much damage as he can in December. Now,

"Presented by meta. Good morning, playbook. It's Friday. Today's show, the U.S. ICA reconciliation dance continues in the Senate. It's your political playbook daily briefing. Before we get into what's happening in Washington today, some sad news out of Japan. Former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe was fatally shot during a campaign speech on Friday from The Associated Press, quote Abe was shot from behind minutes after he started his speech Friday in Yara in western Japan. He was airlifted to a hospital for emergency treatment, but was not breathing, and his heart had stopped. He was pronounced dead later at the hospital, the 67 year old Abe was Japan's longest serving leader before stepping down for health reasons in 2020. From NHK quote, sources with the investigation tell NHK a gun seized at the scene appeared to be handmade, Chuck Schumer made a couple of new moves in his effort to advance two pieces of legislation tangled in political knots. Recall that Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell recently tweeted, quote, there will be no bipartisan U.S. ICA, as long as Democrats are pursuing a partisan reconciliation bill. U.S. ICA, the United States innovation and competition act is the industrial policy legislation that would shower the semiconductor industry with $52 billion of incentives to ramp up chip making in America. China hawks like the bill because it makes the U.S. less reliant on Chinese imports. The Biden administration hails it as a policy that will strengthen the supply chain, boost domestic manufacturing and quote help us out compete China. The new reconciliation bill being negotiated by Schumer and senator Joe Manchin, who you might recall, tanked the lost reconciliation bill back in December, has been inching along. Politico's Burgess Everett and Marianne Levine report, quote, roughly speaking, Manchin and Schumer are working toward legislation that provides $1 trillion in new revenues, half of which would go towards deficit reduction and half of which would go toward energy and health spending. Such a deal is hypothetical at the moment, the tax and energy pieces remain in major flux. This week, the portion of the bill dealing with prescription drug pricing was submitted to the parliamentarian for review, though the two parties haven't yet made their presentations before her. The Democrats had to choose between the U.S. ICA and a reconciliation bill, most of them would rather have the reconciliation bill, so it's unclear how much McConnell's threat matters, but Schumer is doing two new things to put pressure on the minority leader and his GOP colleagues. One, he's amping up the national security case for U.S. ICA. According to a spokesman, Schumer has, quote, requested an all senators classified briefing from the administration on the global innovation and technology race and U.S. ICA. The briefing is scheduled for next Wednesday. And two, he's highlighting a new popular piece of reconciliation. Schumer has crafted a proposal for the reconciliation package that would extend the solvency of Medicare through 2031 by taxing very high earners. Schumer is ready to submit the Medicare proposal to the parliamentarian, likely on Monday. Next week, we'll be busy on both fronts, and these two shimmer moves are aimed at McConnell's threat linking the two bills for what it's worth. We remember back when McConnell thought linkage was bad because it would quote hold a bipartisan bill hostage over a separate and partisan process. One Senate Democrat argued to play the last night, quote McConnell is in a tough spot, blocking tough on China Bill because he doesn't want to extend Medicare and lower prescription drug prices. Then again, this could be wishful thinking. One thing McConnell has learned over the years is that when you're in the minority, there's little price to pay for obstruction. Back on Wednesday night, D.C. protesters targeting the conservative Supreme Court Justices who signed onto the Dobbs decision of returning the constitutional right to abortion got a tip that justice Brett Kavanaugh was dining and Morton's downtown D.C. location. Protesters soon showed up out front called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out and later tweeted that the justice was forced to exit through the rear of the restaurant. But because Daniel lipman looked into the incident for us and confirmed that account, while the court has no official comment on Kavanaugh's behalf, and the person familiar with the situation said, he did not hear or receive a protesters. Morton's was outraged about the incident, a representative for the James steakhouse, sent lipman the statement, quote, honorable Supreme Court Justice, Kavanaugh, and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by an oily protesters while eating dinner at our Morton's restaurant. Politics, regardless of your cider views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There was a time and a place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency. Here's what's up in Washington today starting with The White House at 1130 a.m. eastern. Biden will deliver remarks on protecting access to reproductive healthcare services with vice president Kamala Harris in HHS secretary Javier becerra, also in attendance. Seung min Kim and Zeke Miller from The Associated Press scoop the details late Thursday night, quote the actions he was expected to outline are intended to try to mitigate some potential penalties women seeking abortion may face after the ruling, but are limited in their ability to safeguard access to abortion nationwide. Biden is expected to formalize instructions to the departments of justice and Health and Human Services to push back on efforts to limit the ability of women to access federally approved abortion medication or to travel across state lines to access clinical abortion services. At one 55, Biden will depart The White House to head to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, where he'll deliver remarks at three 40 p.m.. Afterward, he'll return to The White House and head to Rehoboth beach Delaware. Here's what's on the fight's president's calendar today at 4 p.m. eastern, vice president Kamala Harris will convene state legislative leaders from Indiana, Florida, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Montana to discuss reproductive rights. Prosthetic, queen Jean Pierre will prove a noon. The Senate and the House are out today. One more thing to watch on the calendar today, the June jobs report will be released at 8 30 a.m., along with next Wednesday's June CPI report, this morning's data will help inform the fed when it meets on July 26th and 27th to decide how much more to hike interest rates. The fed is debating between a .5 or .75 percentage .8, a good report today. Let's say above 250,000 jobs created in June means the larger interest rate is more likely as the fed tries to cool down the economy.

"schumer" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"But if you're new here, build back better is the sweeping social and climate spending bill that was a top legislative goal for president Joe Biden. The moderate senator from West Virginia, Joe Manchin, through some cold water on that goal yesterday. CNN's Manu Raju asked mansion about the bill, take a listen. Do you have any talks about that? No. No. No, no. Manchin has raised concerns over inflation, the pandemic, the federal debt, and the government spending as some of his reasons not to support the bill. So there's no clear path forward for the $1.9 trillion spending plan as it stands. But Democrats still remain hopeful to eventually pass some kind of scaled back version of that legislation. White House press secretary Jen Psaki didn't respond to mansion's comments on build back better Tuesday, but added this. What I will note and where there is strong support moving forward across the democratic caucus is on taking steps to lower costs for child care for healthcare for elder care and making sure that Medicare can negotiate the cost of prescription drugs and ensuring the tax system is fair. Whatever you call that, there is strong support for that, strong passion for that. A lot of advocacy for that. And there are a lot of members having continued conversations about it. If build back better with such a big priority for them, you might be asking yourself how the party has gotten itself back to square one essentially. After months of intense negotiations. Your eyebrows might rise even higher when I tell you Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer has no one where mansion stood since last July. Manchin told Schumer then, he didn't want to spend more than 1.5 trillion on the bill when the bill was still at a $3.5 trillion price tag. The two sealed their stances with their signatures on a document, which Schumer said wasn't an agreement. The White House and House speaker Nancy Pelosi didn't even know about this. Underscoring how blindsided many Democrats felt learning about that. Despite all that, Schumer insists he handled dealing with mansion right in an exclusive interview with CNN. Voting rights build back better in action on student loans and climate change. These are a few of many examples that show how hard it is for Schumer to maneuver as majority leader in a narrowly divided chamber, especially working with two Democrats who buck the party's wishes often. Manchin and Arizona senator Kirsten sinema. There's a high stakes Supreme Court nomination coming up that can reset the caucus toward action and unity. But even so, the sudden illness of a member, senator Ben ray luhan of New Mexico, who suffered a stroke last week, underscores the limit of Schumer's ambitions. Senator luhan is expected to make a quick recovery, but still, anything can happen. Without one senator, Democrats could face difficulties in advancing votes and nominations. Schumer tells CNN exclusively, despite all the setbacks, he believes he and his colleagues have excelled at moving Biden's agenda forward. He says infrastructure, confirming 40 plus judges and enacting COVID-19 relief are all accomplishments that far overshadow what was left on the table. We know progressives and moderates within the Democratic Party have plenty of policy disagreements. And Schumer's leadership approach over the last two years has been defined by an eager embrace of the left, to the chagrin of some and dismay of others, among some top House Democrats, there's ample frustration at Schumer's reluctance to tell any member the word no, especially as Pelosi has stood up to progressives in dealing with her three seat House margin and popular policies have fallen to the wayside. Many Democrats tell CNN, their guesses for why Schumer has such a progressive soft spot is because he's up for reelection himself this year. He could be worried about any primary challenges, especially if progressive congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decides to give him a run for his money. Speaking of primaries, some of the most vulnerable Democrats in the Senate have raised enormous sums. That's according to new campaign finance reports, but they face some well funded competition from the right. Republican organizations enter this election year with a combined 220 million in cash reserves. By contrast, organizations working to elect Democrats to Congress had about a 176 million in their bank accounts. Some key Senate races to watch in 2022 will be in Georgia, New Mexico, and Arizona, where incumbent Democrats saw strong fundraising numbers. Florida will be interesting too, where Democrat Val demings aims to unseat GOP senator Marco Rubio this year. She outfund raised him last quarter. Manchin and cinema, each posted strong fundraising numbers in the fourth quarter, with both raising over a $1 million. Neither faces reelection until 2024. All this to say, momentum and voter enthusiasm are not on Democrat side. Republicans are working hard to win back the House and the Senate, and they have a fighting chance to do so, especially if Democrats don't put forward a united front in the coming months. That's it for today's political briefing. I'm Melanie zona and thanks so much for listening. Please take a moment and be sure to follow us wherever you get your podcasts. Talk to you tomorrow.

"Even introducing draft legislation. Are you getting bipartisan. Support from your senate colleagues. Which i understand that you will need and why is this so important to you well. I think it's very important sunny. Because i it's freedom. When marijuana was first Legalized in a few of the western states oregon colorado. Everyone said that'd be a lot of harm drug use would go up. Crime would go up neither happen so that makes sense. Marijuana was has been so over criminalized at the federal level. It's treated like heroin or cocaine very much more serious Drugs and even worse. We have a person who has a young. A small amount of marijuana. Young person in their pocket can get arrested. Have such serious criminal record as if they were selling a whole lot of heroin they can almost never recover hard to get a job credit ratings change housing etc. So i we want to legalize it to make sure that the people who want to use it can use it without this over criminalization second. We want to expunge records of people who had a small amount of marijuana in their pockets. Sort of them hurt the rest of their lives. We'd love them to be productive citizens. Can we pass it. Yes this is a place sunny with the public is way ahead of the congress. South dakota put it on the ballot this year. they're hardly a liberal state and a majority of people voted to legalize it. Seventy five percent of america's for legalization. So senator booker and widened. I put in a draft. Bill we're now going around to our colleague saying would you sign onto the bill and if you don't like what's in the bill and wants a modifications tell us i want to get this done and i think we will get it done because it's so so overwhelmingly supported by the american people. Yeah coca cola. Thank me that was me. I can't see you. I can just see the tv lens. Their covert is fast becoming the pandemic of the in unvaccinated as infection rate skyrocket and the delta variant is spreading everywhere in all fifty states. Mayor de blasios just imposed a vaccine mandate for new york city public health workers. Do you think it's time to revisit. Vaccine in mask mandates. More broadly to kind of fight back this surge will there is a surge and it's very serious and i i would say to people who are not getting vaccinated. They say well. I don't care it hurts. Other people when a large percentage of the population is vaccinated it allows the covert virus to fester and new variants. new mutations. Come along we get one even worse than the delta one that's out there now so encouraging everybody to get vaccinated is and everyone should be doing more on the in that score as for the masks with with the delta variant out there we really have to rely on the scientists. I don't know what to blasi. Oh relied upon. But here at the washington level i talked to the lead scientists and we should follow their lead. Because if we're too soft on this it could come back and haunt us once again. We've turned the corner. We were able to get the vaccines out. I was very proud of the role. I played in the in the american rescue. Plan to get those maxine. How quickly and across the board. But now we need to get everybody vaccinated and listen to the science because with so many people not vaccinated. The variants could get even worse. Thanks to senator majority leader chuck schumer and we will be back with great to.

"Again and never happened in history and god forbid anything like that ever comes close to happening again and they all need to start acting like adults and not like pathetic bureaucrats because elections come and these people will be voted out and maybe the generation before mine will let these people in these boomers. Just continue to get nothing done. But i promise you other generations coming up. We'll not. let's hope you're saying saying it correctly. Sarah is a bipartisan committee. That important to you as well here not anymore it was when it was more of an independent nine eleven type commission and Senate republicans voted that down so they kind of told us how they felt about this. We've seen them kind of rewrite that day. Completely talking about them you could have mistaken these people for normal tourists. You could've you know. They were peaceful patriots. And all these things. And i keep coming back to how important what they find in. This investigation can be remember when we were talking days afterwards that there were possible members of congress giving tours to people before. There's a lot of stuff to be discovered if you do not look at the problem. Investigate get information. It will happen again and at this point. I don't care if it's bipartisan. I only want people that care about this on this committee. And by a by mccarthy presenting jim jordan. He's telling us that. It was almost like tempting the beast to say we're good here so at this point. I don't think the attempt was even in good faith so absolutely move along worry about something else. Let people that care about this. Do the work yeah. Unfortunately that is what it looks like is going to happen you know. A bipartisan committee would have been better but you know i don't know how we change it but it it can't change when one side is consistently giving the other side the middle finger. None of this is going to work unless we're all trying to figure it out together. We'll be right back to senator chuck schumer think the civil war over the january. Six commission is a death blow for bipartisanship and could kill the bill on infrastructure to. He's live on the view next. Still ahead and podcast host catt sadler shares of getting proven from her unvaccinated son after she was vaccinated changed her view on how families need to talk about taking their shots. Welcome back. dc is divided on so many fronts right now so joining us to talk about finding a path across the aisle is senate majority leader. Chuck schumer. Sarah has the first question. I see everybody good to be back with you. Thank you for being here now. I'm going to start out with the senators on. Both sides of the aisle are working. Hard to finalize a bipartisan infrastructure. Deal to address issues that everyone agrees needs to be fixed like crumbling roads bridges now negotiators asked you to give them till monday to wrap up the deal but yesterday you forged ahead with procedural vote on it and as expected it failed. Why did you go forward with this. Vote and what happens now. I move forward with the vote to get things moving a month ago. This bipartisan group came up with an agreement and then they couldn't They shook hands on an agreement but then they couldn't put it all together. And you know how the senate works unless you get a deadline. Nothing will happen. The good news is since. I called for the vote. Negotiations have sped up They're making much progress. A they've reached agreement on many things. There are still a few outstanding issues. But if i hadn't asked for the vote we might have just been in the same situation. We're not much was happening. What i did do was reserved. The right to bring the bill back up and i said i'll do that at some future date so i hope they can come to an agreement and then we'll move forward. Okay so there's another bill waiting in the wings on Human infrastructure which will really help families with health care and childcare education of course climate change..

"So i mean it seems to me that the conservative thing actually truly conservative thing to do right now is to not make any change to hold the course steady especially given that. The fed doesn't know what's going to happen with with fiscal policy given what's going on in congress and so not to not change said. Look we don't what's going to happen with this. We may not know the exact number right but we know it's going to be Certainly north of two and a half trillion probably close to three trillion. And we know what fiscal policy has been over the past year. So you know now again. Don't don't need a weather. Mandatory wind blows. At what point would you say that one of us would have to be able to come back and say i told you so or i was wrong. How long if in six months inflation is back down to around two percent or so then is it. Okay if i if i remind you of this and absolutely and it won't be okay. I'm i'm willing to. I'm willing to ban the side of the federal reserve board of governors. But we will doing sort of an over over under. Yes on infliction okay. So annually adjusted six months from now where we are okay. Okay sounds good. We were visit that but in the meantime. Why don't we move on to our next story at this week. Senate majority leader. Chuck schumer introduced the cannabis administration and opportunity act. The bill would decriminalize merrill on at the federal level. Remove it from the controlled substances act and begin regulating and taxing. It would also expunge nonviolent marijuana related arrests and convictions at the federal level entitled those who are currently in prison on federal nonviolent mural von marijuana related charges for a hearing to reconsider their sentences allow marijuana businesses in states where their legal access to the banking system as well as the ability to write off business related expenses on their federal taxes and as well as earmarking marijuana tax revenue for restorative justice programs in communities that are most affected by what the bill calls the failed federal prohibition of cannabis so jay. Why do you think is it about time for something like this. Do you see it as kind of too much too soon. Too much too soon. I'll maybe it maybe just too much right In terms of of things like the allowing for banks and so forth to deal with this. I think that's that makes sense. Based on where state. Laws are based on legalization And and of other cbd and marijuana light substances i. I don't have a big issue with that the the the the review of all the new hearings for For everyone in federal prison..

Thank you very much There's gotta be some level of grace years while i'm getting that from A lot of people who liked haley are very disappointed by what looks like opportunism as she tries to navigate that the party needs to move on from donald trump.

Seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. Let's go back to the phones david. Calling from dalton. You're going to be next welcome. I'm really curious. What do you think that humor in the democratic house managers are telling a constituent that may confront them as to why they didn't call witnesses but for me is the real answer. I won't the answer. They're given out in your opinion. But what if. I through those people in a room with truth and shot him up full of truth serum what is the real answer they did not call witnesses compared to what they're telling their constituents in that thank you. Yeah absolutely Okay so what. They're telling their constituents is that they needed to move on and that they decided that there was no way to persuade I think the real answer is that in part That yes they do want to move on and they would get bogged down and it would drag out i do think there's some legitimacy to that. But i actually think that the real answer is that if they had witnesses and the republicans were allowed to have witnesses well that it would become more complex that aid the the president clearly did in i listen i know some of you disagree with this but the president clearly did tell the crowd to march to the capitol. He did that in a speech. Those are his words to walk up to the capital. He wanted them in his speech to be peaceful but walk up to the capital. There is evidence that the cunanan browde boy people were planning this in advance and there would be tough questions for Whether or not the Whether or not the capitol police were told to down whether not members of the capitol police collaborated whether or not members of congress collaborated. There would be tough questions that could potentially undermine the whole institution and so they chose to move on..

"There's a problem for the gop your shift lake. Moderate republicans as you just heard senator cassidy. There insist that the party is ready to move on from trump. So why isn't that actually happening. Well cassidy it it. It simply has to. We have no choice. We're headed down a demographic cul de sac if we don't if you look at what's happened. Since president trump was elected we lost the white house. We lost the house. We lost the senate. We lost more than four hundred legislative seats nationwide. So there's really no future with trumpism so we've got to move on it's difficult because the Base is still there But we have to move on and then what if you don't what if it just is the trump. Well we'll just continue to lose. Seats will continue to be frankly and a permanent minority if we continue so we have to and we should want to as well. I mean look at what has happened since the last election. The president lost the election. Then used every lever at his disposal to hang onto that To hang onto the white house and we saw what resulted on january. Sixth notice his four hundred seats. That's a clever talking point from jeff flake. Charlie actually put it out to me this morning. Where is this coming from. And i have had to look and it appears that he is recounting four hundred seats lost in the last four years. Not in the last election in the last four years. Four hundred republican seats lost what. He's not counting then are the offsetting pickups this past year so he's not counting the republican gains in two thousand twenty some of which negated the losses in two thousand eighteen. I mean the republicans lost some seats in two thousand eighteen and picked them right back up and twenty twenty. So he's not doing that. And then there are the state. Legislative races The republicans Getting the minnesota state senate republicans securing the complete arizona legislature republicans. Picking up all of new hampshire. They wound up. Not picking up the the state house in alaska. They didn't hold But a lot of they picked up a lot of legislative seats and jeff lakes ignoring those. Here's the problem for all the people in the media bubble about donald trump. If if you're actually about the situation with donald trump if you're actually honest about situation donald trump you have to acknowledge that there are parts of the country where donald trump underperformed other republicans.
