"I'm very concerned about the bill this committee is considering It's not really the type of legislation that we usually consider where the rules are laid out and everyone is expected to comply Instead it's a specifically designed to target a small number of specific companies Most of which are headquartered in my home state of California Welcome back to Bloomberg technology I'm Emily changi San Francisco That was California senator dianne Feinstein commenting on an antitrust bill that many believe could be lawmakers best shot at reining in big tech despite concerns that bill ultimately made it out of committee 6 senators opposing all Republicans but plenty of Democrats including as you heard there Feinstein and fellow California senator Alex Padilla both opposing this bill as it stands fearing that it could hurt consumers and they're also concerned about security So we can expect amendments for more on all of this I'm joined by Bloomberg's Tom Giles our tech editor and Adam covach founder and CEO of the chamber of progress Adam This bill as I understand it would prevent companies like Apple and Google and Amazon from preferencing products like Apple music and Google Maps and Amazon's private label products Talk to us about how significant this bill if passed could be Well I think frankly these are some of the most significant potential changes to consumer technology products that Congress has debated maybe ever as you said their aimed at prohibiting the big 5 companies top 5 companies from preferencing their own products And so in effect that would mean that Amazon couldn't feature Amazon basics brand products It probably couldn't highlight Amazon Prime two day shipping products a new iPhone probably couldn't come pre installed iMessage or FaceTime and a Google search for a local restaurant probably couldn't include a Google map So if you think about tech products like a car that comes installed with windshield wipers or a radio Under this bill you would be forced to get all those amenities separately rather than having the convenience of having them built in And it's not surprising that there's some companies like Yelp and Spotify that would benefit from that kind of mandate but I think consumers would see pretty negative impacts from this kind of step That said even though a number of senators opposed the bill they still pushed it out of committee I want you to take a quick listen to senator Coons and what he had to say I have remaining concerns about privacy and security about our global competitiveness And about services that are widely.

"They deserve to live without fear of deportation in so Plan b. plan c. Whatever it takes we're gonna keep fighting until we get to yes and provide those protections and security for as many people as possible as quickly as possible when you say you're gonna keep fighting until you get to yes. I think i'm just trying to understand a lot of people trying to understand or set reasonable expectations for how this is going to go. And i want to ask you about something that reportedly happened today involving Senator menendez Today summer menendez an immigrant rights group held a conference call with reporters Were a leader from one immigration advocacy. Group said nobody gets to hide behind the parliamentarian. This year. She is not an elected official. She serves at the pleasure of the majority leader implying that the parliamentarian if she will never get to yes on this issue that it's democrats prerogative to replace her with somebody who've used these matters differently is that within the realm of possibility as far as you're concerned Look i don't think we're there yet. Frankly because we have thoughtful second proposal third proposal to To to get to. Yes as i mentioned and provide the much deserved well earned protections for millions of people in the united states. So we're the that's what the task is at hand. We've got the answer last night from the parliamentarian on the first proposal to her with a clearly. Both the budget reconciliation process and infrastructure. Package negotiations are not going to be finalized and in the next couple of days. So there's a little bit of time here and we're very confident that one of the alternative plans that will be presented in the coming days will meet the threshold. The criteria the parliamentarian has laid out. So please stay tuned. This is an interactive process But we are not giving up the fight. We know how this is a particularly from my home state of california. A wanna make sure. I make disciplined because representative of so many other states in california's hope to more immigrants. Any other state in the nation and seems like it's a different topic. A different audience. Different subject matter with people recognize california as the fifth modest economy in the world right if immigrants were drag on the economy that wouldn't be the case. California has the strongest economy of any state in the nation because of the contributions of immigrants as workforce as consumers and as entrepreneurs and so we'll continue to evolve the presentation to the parliamentarian to recognize. That too is that just an economic impact. It's a federal budget impact which is at the heart of what the reconciliation process is all about. Let me also ask you about an issue right now where the time really is short And that is this question of keeping the lights on and the government keeping the government operating Bumping up against the debt ceiling which is due to happen within weeks are in what appears to be not so much a standoff as essentially a refusal sort of threat slash promise from the republican side of the aisle that they not only won't help keep the government funded they won't vote to fund the government nor will they vote to raise the debt ceiling but in fact they may filibuster on those issues which would not only mean that republicans are helping to do those things that would mean they're blocking democrats from from keeping the government going and and from defaulting the government from defaulting. If we if we do if we are allowed to hit that hit that debt ceiling. How is that going to resolve that. I'm i'm struck by the fact that the republicans are making any demands. They're just saying yeah. We're gonna hit both of those walls and you can't do anything about it so It sounds like a question is a reprised that mitch. Mcconnell and senate republicans are playing politics a with in the nation's economy and the ability for government to keep functioning will start the next fiscal year Surprised mitch mcconnell senate. Republicans are being obstructionists. Once again in trying to democrats in a is the only only lens. Twenty twenty two electric of course not bench We do have some ten days or so Have all the confidence in a leader. Schumer a espy kaposi for that matter to make sure that we get agreements done on a timely basis to avoid any damage frankly to american founded. Because they're ultimately the people who get hurt the most if there's another government shutdown as it has been in the past Or anything else. We will be responsible. We will get done aides to get done. And i wouldn't wanna be senate republican that oats by the way against emergency funding for the victims of a hurricane in louisiana. I would not want to be republican votes against emergency funding for a victims of flooding in the northeastern. I certainly would have wanted to be republican votes against the necessary to funding for victims of wildfires in the west That's gonna be a choice that they will have to me. Senator alex padilla of california on the budget committee chair the judiciary subcommittee on immigration citizenship in the border Sir thanks for making time to be with us this evening. I know this is a hurly-burly time in the senate. Thanks for helping us understand ritual. I will tell you one other thing to watch for this week in washington as promise but the house back in session speaker. Nancy pelosi said when they came back in session. The house would take up the women's health protection act. Which is essentially longstanding piece of legislation sponsored by california congresswoman. Judy chu that would codify in law the protections for abortion rights From roe versus wade because of the supreme court allowed texas abortion banned to go into effect while the democrat while. Excuse me while. The house was on recess. Nancy pelosi said that would come right episodes. they're back. They are bringing that up in the house. Right away The senate will then have to decide if they are also going to pass that legislation which is a harder going to be a harder thing for them to do in the united states senate but time it could not be more urgent on that This weekend a san antonio doctor came forward and said that he has deliberately broken that ban that he provided an abortion after six weeks That means the legal process started in terms of the way. That challenge is going to go whether or not actual legislation is passed on capitol hill to bolster abortion rights. Again one of another one of these things that just could not be more timely at all. All really just has to happen all at once. Much more ahead tonight. Stay with us..

"We did finally get an answer but the answer was basically no try again. It was ten days ago when democrats. I went to the parliamentarian in the senate to present their case for including big part president biden's immigration plan in the three and a half trillion dollar bill that they're trying to pass which includes the president's infrastructure priorities and climate stuff and and much more the inference. Excuse me the immigration proposal they wanted to include would have meant a path to citizenship for millions of people already living in the us including the dreamers people who are brought to this country as kids many of whom have lived in the united states ever since they got here his ki as kids. They've lived their entire adult lives only in this country now. Democrats are trying to get that that big bill. That big budget reconciliation bill including all this stuff passed with only democratic votes under arcane senate rules that means they have to go through the parliamentarian to get everything approved to basically get her permission to include what they want to include in the bill and we had been waiting all last week for an answer from that parliamentarian on whether immigration stuff could be included in the democrats bill. Then this weekend. She finally issued a ruling saying that the democrats immigration proposal at least as it was presented to her. No she's not going to let it be put in the bill basically said it was too broad and democrats need to go back to the drawing board now even before the parliamentarian issued a ruling this weekend democrat said that they had other plants that if she said no they would not give up. They would talk not take no for an answer. They would keep revising their plan and coming up with new proposals until it passed muster with the parliamentarian because they are going to pass something today the second ranking democrat in the senate senator. Dick durbin reiterated that pledge. You should a joint statement with california. Senator alex padilla which says quote. We are deeply disappointed in the parliamentarians decision but the fight for immigration reform will continue senate democrats have prepared an alternative proposal for the parliamentarians consideration. In the coming days. Senator durbin also told. Nbc news is. He'll kapoor that senate. Democrats have a plan b. and plan c. and plan d on putting immigration in the big reconciliation bill. So i have questions. A lot of people do what is plan. B also. what's planned c and what's planned. D- what are these new proposals going to look like and if democrats really are going to not take no for an answer if they get through this plan b. proposal it gets rejected and they try and they planned. Try plan d. Could this reach a point. Where democrats decide that. They're going to overrule the parliamentarian or replace the parliamentarians both of which have happened before. Because they care enough about this issue that they're going to get. This passed one way or the other joining us now is senator. Alex padilla of california. He is a member of the budget. Committee he's chair of the judiciary subcommittee on immigration citizenship and border safety is one of the key. Figures pushing for immigration issues to be included in this bill settler. It's really nice to see you again. Thanks for being with us this evening. C. rachel spinner noble. Thanks for having me indeed well to talk us. Talk us through what we should understand about this. It does seem like the parliamentarians ruling was. Nobody's idea of a sure. Bet we've been assured by senate leadership by the senate democratic leadership that there is a there is a plan b. There's an alternate proposal. That's ready to go back to her can you. Can you talk us through a little bit how this is going to go and First and foremost Is the parliamentarians ruling that we learned last night. Disappointing absolutely Does it come as a complete shock. doug because you know in our business hope the bet prepare for the worst so yes we have been working on alternative proposals in the events. We didn't get an initial yes to our first proposal. So senator durbin right. There is a plan. B in this area of a plan or what not the fundamental goals. Stay the same at respected them.

"Focused So much on unity. I mean, you you hear the words from past presidents? Obama, you know, famously in his convention speech in 2004, before he ran for president talked about the red and blue states of America coming together, working together, But this was an entire speech focus on what happened two weeks ago with the capital. How How it really puncture puncture the sacredness of Washington of the capital and how we need to rebuild together again. His is deeds is agenda is going to set the tone a lot more than the words of this inauguration speech. But it is the exact right tone that Ah lot of Americans were looking for him. Tea set. Even Republicans who supported Trump. I think we're getting sick of the food, fight the folks that we're not the biggest hardcore Marga supporters wanted some restoration of normalcy. It was what allowed Biden Toe win. Ah, very contested Democratic nomination, and it was a winning message against Trump in the general election, so he's got to translate that rhetoric into policy into substance in his opening weeks in office, well, his opening salvo appears to be this coronavirus relief package that that was $1.9 trillion. It is a lot of money, it is more certain. Leaving Republicans on Capitol Hill have been comfortable spending. There are some policy initiatives in there as well. That would increase the minimum wage. And so that will be the first big test. I think for President Biden to see what sort of consensus what sort of coalition he could build. On Capitol Hill with this Democratic led House of Representatives, this Democratic led Senate. But barely this 50 50 Senate now will get underway in the United States Senate later this afternoon. Josh with the swearing then of California Senator Alex Padilla and the two Democrats now from the state of Georgia. Reverend Raphael Warnock in John Assef taking their Senate seats later this afternoon, a 50 50 Senate, something we have not seen in this country for about two decades. How do you see that? Playing out with this ambitious agenda now from the Biden administration? It means a whole lot for the for the Biden administration. It means that he's got home field advantage. He's got the ability for Senate Majority leader Schumer to embrace his policies to bring up that legislation in the Senate and not having having to worry whether Mitch McConnell if he was majority leader, what would block his priorities? His legislation. It's still a 50 50 Senate. It's still don't don't think for a second that the progressive wish list is going to get past in an evenly divided Senate with with a lot of moderate Democrats from Joe Manchin of West Virginia Toe John Hickenlooper of Colorado. I mean this. This is still an evenly divided Senate and for a lot of big legislation, you know, McConnell still may have the filibuster and you still may need 60 votes to get significant legislation passed, But it gives biting the opportunity to set the agenda to set the tone and gives him the opportunity to pick off the Republicans to promote legislation. They can build a bipartisan coalitions that he talked about in his inauguration speech President Biden talked about using this administration is a force for good in the world. No Speaking of unity. And sound to some like a foolish fantasy these days. No. The forces that divide us are deep and they are real. But I also know they are not new. Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal that we're all are created equal and the harsh Ugly reality that racism, native ism fear demonization. Had long tourney us apart. The battle is perennial and victory is never assured through civil war. The Great Depression World War 9 11. Struggle. Sacrificing setbacks, our better angels have always prevailed. In each of these moments, Enough of us, enough of us have come together to carry all of us forward. We could do that now. History, Faith and reason show the way the way of unity. Way are.
