"Senate and Republican senator Ben sasse of Nebraska had his own take on his colleagues behavior Let's listen We should recognize that Jack assery we often see around here is partly because of people mugging for short term camera opportunities And it is definitely a second and third and fourth order effect that the court should think through before it has advocates in there who are not only trying to persuade you 9 justices But also trying to get on cable that night or create a viral video Yes of course will not be the last time that elected officials use high profile hearings to try to get on the news or create campaign advertising fodder That's nothing new here in Washington As we look forward though David to the rest of this process we expect a vote in the committee on April 4th It is entirely likely that by the time this gets to the floor and judge Jackson at this point is expected to be confirmed It could be a long party lines And in fact one of the closest votes ever in the history of a Supreme Court nomination David Yeah just to editorialize for a minute as you know I spent some time with the Supreme Court and that's exactly the reason the Supreme Court has never wanted televised oral arguments because they were afraid that the advocates would be mugging for the cameras rather than answering questions So senator sass has a point from my point of view at least At the same time is she going to get any Republican votes Going into this people thought there were two maybe three even more You're going to get any Republican votes at this point Remembering David she got three in her last time being confirmed here for what the circuit court judge position The answer right now it appears to be no We'll find out in a couple of days if this evolves but based on the language we heard from minority leader Mitch McConnell yesterday the Republican Party is getting cover here to completely turn away from judge Jackson despite the fact that it will not change the makeup of the court Okay Joe thank you so much That's our very own Joe Matthew and once again he's host of sound on every day of the week at 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Bloomberg radio Coming up here senator.

During which he engaged in sexual acts with her. The new charges against Maxwell go further than those contained in an earlier indictment that accused her of helping Mr Epstein recruit groom and ultimately sexually abused girls, but did not include sex trafficking allegations. Now those charges have been included. Senator Ben Sasse, who's a Republican from Nebraska. He's been really demanding. Action in this case and accountability in this case, he put out a statement last night. Quote. This is good news. All of Epstein's co conspirators and especially Ghislaine Maxwell should be prosecuted to the fullest, his fullest extent of the law. She knows the depth of Epstein's sick crimes and the DOJ ought to do everything he can to keep her alive. Yes, considering what happened with Epstein himself and bring her to justice.

That is that and copyright Tony cats today all rights reserved if I don't hear this, utilize the monks in Nebraska Gov. By the end of the day, I'm out, John. Well done. But Senator Ben Sasse He made a video. And he wants you to know in Nebraska that I don't worship Is not conservative. Something is definitely changed over the last four years, But it's not me. Personality cults aren't conservative Conspiracy theories aren't conservative lying that an election has been stolen. It's not conservative, acting like politics is a religion. It isn't conservative now. Part I totally agree with right acting like Like your politics or religion. That's that's nuts. Acting like an election's been stolen. That's a different conversation, Senator Then saying, I have an issue with this right here. Let me show you. If I point out that Pennsylvania, the court usurped the Legislature's the Legislature, the legislative branch and yes, those results are certified, but we're still talking about an act that is unacceptable. Would argue unconstitutional. Mind now not a conservative for noting it for noticing it. Because if you want to tell me that you can and then you and I will have a robust disagreement where I explained to you why you're wrong. E. I just wanna make sure we're making that distinction screaming. It's stolen without bringing the receipts of a theft. That indeed He's not conservative, but Senator Sasse is not done. Still believe every word from the campaign trail. What makes America great isn't power politics. It's what happens in the communities were you and I are raising our kids. Happily, most Nebraskans still believe that too. I think that's why Nebraskans just gave our campaign tens of thousands more votes than President Trump gotten our state. It's why our campaign just set all time vote count records in both the primary and general elections despite being primary last year for not being Trumpy. Not being Trumpy, you gotta You gotta love that. His argument is a good one in that one, and that that you have The numbers don't lie if he got more votes than President Trump. And he isn't into the very concept of Idol worship. Well, then, clearly there's an attractiveness there. I have often discussed this very idea of Idol worship. I am not there. That's why, when I watched people talked about the party and the party of Trump First It has a conservative. It's about the values and the concepts that allow me to live My most free life with other people. Stay in the You know what out of my way. That's what it's about. That's the value. It's not about the guy. Not recognized that the guy was helpful. And taught lessons. If Senator Sasse want to say to me that there is no lesson learned that there is no value that came from Donald Trump's four years. Well, then I would say to him, you got to go. I I I've of course. Of course you do. It would be time to say goodbye because that's untrue. And of course, it's untrue. It will remain untrue, but Senator says it. I don't know if he's saying that, but he's not done. All time, most votes for any candidate in Nebraska history and look at Omaha, which he lost by a lot, and we won handle a why. I think the reason is simple. Nebraskans aren't rage, attics and that's good news. You are welcome to censure me again. But let's be clear about why this is happening. It's because I still believe as you used to that politics isn't about the weird worship of one dude. The party could purge trump skeptics, But I'd like to convince you that Not only is that civic cancer for the nation it's just terrible for our party. But either way, I'm gonna keep doing what I promised. We still agree on some big things. Rule of law, constitutionalism, limited government, unlimited human potential, extending the American dream to more of our brothers and sisters. We can lead again. But only if our party is willing to change. We're gonna have to choose between conservatism and madness between just trolling versus actually persuading the rising generation of Americans again. That's what I'm focused on. And I sincerely hope that many of you will join and celebrating these big worthy causes for freedom. Look, I know I won't always get it right and make a bunch of mistakes. But I'm always gonna work hard for Nebraskans. And I'm always going to tell you the truth. Thanks for listening. Swing and a foul tip. I mean, he had the argument. He had the argument and then he let the argument go. Where did that happen? I'm gonna keep doing what I promised. We still agree on some big things. Rule of law, constitutionalism, limited government, unlimited human potential, extending the American dream to more of our brothers and sisters. We can lead again. But only if our party is willing to change. We're gonna have to choose between conservatism and madness between just trolling versus actually persuading the rising Stop. You're right about the unlimited potential, Senator. You are absolutely positively correct. But it wasn't four years of just trolling now, was it that is a dis honest thing to say. That's dishonest. I'm not saying it didn't exist. I'm not saying it didn't happen. But it was about a much larger conversation that is worthy of recognition. With all due respect, Senator Stop pretending it doesn't matter. It has to do with the ability to properly fight. And the ability to properly fight to recognize what a fight is to go out there and do so and not worry about whether not you get invited to the proper Christmas party. He is one of the most essential functions that conservative must engage. You're absolutely right. I don't worship is nuts. I'm not in the principal's matter. You're gonna discount four years of Donald Trump, who actually engaged the idea of fighting. You may not have liked the way he fights. You might think there's a better way to fight. You might think that the fighting needs to be more surgical. Okay? Now we're talking. But the idea That we shouldn't fight the idea that it was all just trolling and not a pushback from Ah, hyper aggressive, abusive, radicalized Press corps and others who had no interest in truth or facts or decency solely and exclusively destruction. If we are going to take the entirety of it, sir, and just simply push it to the side. As though that Trump Well, then centuries should be the least of the things that happens to you. Maybe the problem is You and the Republican Party in a brass star so wrapped up in being right. Yam figured out what's right. Or maybe better, said Where the parts that you agree. And how do you build on those? And where the parts you disagree and why? If I'm taking a look at it. How I took your word, Senator. Don't worship is a problem. If you think the Republican Party is the party of Trump every you're absolutely wrong. Everything you think doesn't fit into the view of conservatives. It fits into a very liberal view. And if you want proof of that look at the people who were singing about and saying I serve Barack Obama. Is that you?.

Biden pushing new stimulus bill regardless of Republican support

"It is a tale of two parties one's governing and the other star really clear what the other party is doing. Republicans are destroying themselves from the inside consumed with feuds over how loyal they can be to a former president. Who incited an insurrection. And fighting over what actions to take about the dangerous conspiracy spewing congresswoman marjorie taylor green meanwhile democrats want to pass laws and help americans who are hurting from the pandemic today. Joe biden made it clear he will pass his covid relief. Package with or without the support of the other side. A lot of folks are losing hope. And i believe the american people looking right now to their government for help to do our job to not let them down. So i'm going to act and i'm going to act fast. I've told both republicans and democrats. That's my preference to work together. But if i had to choose between getting help right now to americans who are hurting badly and getting drier bogged down in a lengthy negotiation or compromise on a bill. That's up to the crisis this an easy choice. I'm going to help. The american people are hurting now. Economic relief should not be a partisan issue. It's clear people hurting. But why helped. Millions of out of work americans when you can instead. Try to oust liz. Cheney from her republican leadership position because she got a case of morals for a moment and voted to impeach donald trump. There is so little talk of solutions from the gop. There hasn't been talk of it for four years. They're so little. Talk of helping the american people. It's just about them and their petty little internal dramas. They barely have ideas of their own and yet they refuse to endorse solutions. That are broadly supported by the american people. Sixty eight percent of americans support president. Biden's covid relief package. According to a brand new quinnipiac poll. Seventy eight percent are in favour of fourteen hundred dollar stimulus payments even sixty four percent of republicans support the stimulus payments. The white house knows that republicans are on the losing side of this. They even released a video about it. My message to our republican elected officials is to put our country first. And i think there should be a bipartisan effort to step up and try and assist these people and it's imperative act quickly before things get worse. Entered the better gives. A lot of people are hurting and need the relief as soon as possible. So i'm rooting for them. To get that done. Here is far deeper problem at the center of this thing. We don't actually know what republicans stand for anymore. They don't support popular legislation or offer solutions of their own now to be fair to republicans. It's hard to juggle ideas and solutions when your focus is pulled toward a dangerous conspiracy spewing freshman congresswoman from georgia whom you will defend at all costs for some unknown reason marjorie taylor. Green was stripped of her committee assignments this week for indicating support for the execution of prominent democrats with whom she now serves. Seems like a fairly reasonable action. Take but republicans balked. They spent more time talking about how unfair it was to the conspiracy speier than they ever have talked about helping americans in need. What do you stand for if you defend a woman who incites support for political violence. Our next guest democratic congressman jimmy gomez says removing marjorie. Green from committees isn't enough her city and her terrifying effect on the republican party require her removal from congress. According to the congressman but republicans would rather focus on feuds than see the obvious danger of keeping marjorie green or donald trump for that matter in office the very very small group who have condemned marjorie green or donald trump are paying the price republican congressman. Adam kinzer is being censured by illinois county republicans for taking actions quote contrary to the values of the gop contrary to the values of the gop. Senator ben sasse might be censured for the second time by nebraska republicans for not being deferential enough to trump. You are welcome to censure me again. But let's be clear about why this is happening because i still believe as you used to. The politics isn't about the weird worship of one dude. The weird worship of one dude. The republican party is not that familiar anymore. Doesn't have a set of values or principles defends a man who incites an insurrection and defends a woman who supports political violence and it barely utter a peep about the millions. The millions of jobless americans struggling just to survive through no fault of their

Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'

"So we walked through how we got here. But it doesn't quite do justice to that queasy feeling you got when you saw people marching through the halls of congress and breaking down doors when you saw crowds of people cheerfully waving their flags from the capitol balcony. So i wanna bring. Abc's chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl and abc senior. National correspondent. Terry moran terry what did a day like. This mean for the united states of america. What do you take away from it. A dark day for the country and i think most people feel that way. This is one of those days that that that will remember and that will be remembered. I if it fades into the mist of history. I'll be surprised because it is something that's never happened this this mob. What does it mean it means. We got through this election. By the skin of our teeth they failed to attempt to obstruct the congress. This failed insurrection. Only underscores how crucial the task before us is for our republic. Joe biden one. Absolutely no doubt about that. But if we're not for the person of mike pence and mitch mcconnell maybe in a couple of other people you know. This mob might have represented the end of the democracy. That's what they wanted. They wanted to stop the certification counting of electoral votes certified by fifty states and give the election to their guy donald trump. Nobody knows what the hell is going on. There's never been anything like this. We will not let them. Silence your voices. we're not gonna let it happen one thing. I was struck by the chance. Fight for trump fight for trump not fight for america. This is a movement in our country and it reached a terrible bloody apex at the cap. Very jonathan karl. I mean you were keeping track of of not just congress not just washington but like inside. The white house has a switch flipped in washington when it comes to how people see the president and his his mission here. My sense is that we are looking at the end of the trump era. All i can say as count me out. Enough is enough of tried to be helpful. I think you saw a moment here. Where donald trump after a string of losses that led to this day loss on november third the losses in in georgia and the senate races in good conscious object to the certification of these electors not to mention the override of of of the veto. That happened On on new year's day You know the president has has seen a a series of things that haven't happened throughout his presidency. Which is losses at the hands of republicans. If you vote to overturn these elections. Wouldn't it be the opposite of what states rights. Republicans have always advocated for them. This would do m- the electoral college forever. And there were certainly a lot of speculation. i think we we had spoken about the possibility of donald trump going back to mar-a-lago and mounting a comeback or at least becoming a kingmaker in the republican party. I after yesterday to those who wreaked havoc in our capital. Today you did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins and this is still the people's house. I don't really think donald trump As republican kingmaker is is a likely scenario after after january. Six or after january twentieth. Does it go beyond that jump. Because you know you heard terry talking about mitch. Mcconnell in even mike pence these forces that were kind of constraining president trump. But how far could that go. I mean what kind of constraints could we see. On president trump going forward. It turned out that it was not his orders that got the national guard into washington. Dc you've got people resigning out from under him overnight. Essentially saying were sickened by all this. And now we're even giving talk about like the twenty fifth amendment. Is that a serious possibility. I there is We we have confirmed. There have been members of the cabinet. Who have had conversations about the twenty fifth amendment that would be effectively removing the president because he is mentally incompetent mentally unable to do the job. those conversations are happening and they're happening not just among the cabinet where it's relevant but also among The president's allies some of the president's allies on capitol hill But that's a. That's a really steep climb. That is an extraordinary thing. You would need in a vice. President can submit a declaration to congressional leaders saying the president is unfit for the job. The president now can contest that and if the vice president and cabinet persist that would lead to a vote in congress but that has never happened before under circumstances such as these now. That's a real long shot. But it just gives you a sense of where we're at and how how worried people very close to donald trump are that those conversations are in fact happening. I'm sure that there are responsible members of the cabinet. Who right now are thinking about. What are their obligations under the oath that they took. And they're not thinking about those things they should be dairy whose complicit in what we just saw i mean you know. I think that's the question that it's going to be weighing on a lot of people going forward here is. Is it enough to say. I condemn violence. But i do believe this. Election was a sham with without any evidence whatsoever like what are the legacies of essentially everyone else in washington stemming out of these events well i think as senator ben sasse republicans nebraska put. It lies have consequences. America isn't hatfields and mccoys. Blood feud forever. america's union. There are a lot of reasons to vote for donald trump. There are lots of reasons to vote against joe biden or against hillary clinton but to tell the american people lies That the election was stolen by some combination of software companies Hugo chavez out of the grave and i don't know the bigfoot that has consequences and to stir it up and drive people to the point of you're telling people they're stealing your country from you. They're stealing your country. They're going to take your guns and they're gonna. They're gonna slaughter babies and kidnap them and put them in a file rings and all the rest of it to wind people up like that. What do you think is going to happen seriously. Especially under the leadership of donald trump. Who has a gift for bloody language as a gift for stirring people up. But we're going to try and give our republicans the weak ones because strong winds. Don't need any of our help. We're going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country he's in march to the capitol and he said show you aren't gonna win by weakness it takes strength. Be strong up there. You know that whole rhetoric of of brutishness in violence and the fist is is the real power anybody who went along with that and plenty. Did the american people may very well judge you to be complicit but i would just say. I'm not as sanguine as john about this is all over. You know these kinds of movements sometimes take fuel from an event like this a lot of republicans. Now have a taste for this kind of this kind of politics. Look what happened in the house. Some of the people who breach the capital today we're not trump supporters. They were masquerading as trump supporters. And in fact were members of the violet. Terrorist group antifa more than half of house. Republicans voted to nullify the election after after the mob attacked the capital. That tells you that. I think this is a long way from being dead.

"We're all kind of with you taking you to till nine o'clock. This evening. You know, earlier we were Talking about? The recent survey from USA Today and Suffolk University. About the fact that 6 50% of Americans surveyed said that Donald Trump will be remembered as the field president. But, um, he's still in, according to the survey enjoyed 70% of support among Republicans and also That they would support him and vote for him in 2024. Well. Just want to read a quick text and I'll get TOC this story to kind of continue The Um, discussion about about President Trump in the election that we that we had earlier. Um this text was from the 262. Trump was a terrible president. Despite some accomplishments, his ego centric, obnoxious personality name calling lack of moral character, lack of empathy and addressing the virus and thousands dying in the pandemic make him one of the worst. That was from from the 262. And then there's this story. From From from NBC News. This is Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska. He criticized Republicans who who plan to object during the certification of electoral college vote next week. Um as some of you may know, Senator Jazz Holy Of Missouri is going to object to the certification of some states Electoral college results on January 6th along with some Republican members of the House. Um And so that will that will create a debate. Um, among the floor of Congress. Um And most people. Expect that nothing will come of that and that things will Um Spore is a Sephora's president elect, biting being being sworn in on January 20th that this won't This won't change that. But this will be up for debate on on January 6. So senator have been sass from Nebraska. Criticize Republicans for The ones who plan to object. During a certification. Um, it says, quote, the president and his allies are playing with fire. If you make big claims. You better have the evidence. What the president doesn't and neither do the institutional arsonist members of Congress who will object to the electoral college vote. He also said this, he said, Let's be clear what is happening here. We have a bunch of ambitious politicians who think there's a quick way to tap into the president's populist base without doing any real long term damage, but they're wrong. This issue is bigger than anyone's personal ambitions. Adults don't point a loaded gun at the heart of legitimate self government. So the question is Is Senator Sasse, right? Because Here's what else, he said. When we talk in private I haven't heard a single congressional Republican alleged that the election results were fraudulent. Not one Instead, I hear them talk about their worries about how they will look to President Trump's most ardent ardent supporters. That was from Senator Ben Sasse. So, basically what he's saying is Is that Publicly. You have some of them? Who? Some members of Congress who have said Look, Mr President, we support you explore every avenue. Um, you know if there's a leg regularities look into him. We believe you. We believe there was something funny going on and then behind closed doors. You're saying Enough fraudulent. This election was on the up and up. But they're scared to death and they have 70 million reasons. To be afraid. That is those 70 million voters who voted for President Trump on Election Day. That they're afraid. Of angering those voters. And that's why They won't say anything publicly. What is this, Senator Sasse, right? Do you believe it? That behind closed doors, Congressional Republicans are saying Election was on the up and up. Publicly. Putting on a different face because they don't want to upset. The voters who voted for Trump and who believe That this election was fraudulent. 85561616 20 on the AC unit talking text line. So do you believe Senator Sasse? Or do you just feel he's Just a rhino.

Yeah that's right. Jim The president also spinning these executive actions claiming that they do more to help struggling Americans than they actually do the president dodging criticism even from within his own party that these actions are unconstitutional and also ignoring previous statements that he's made about executive actions. Tonight president trump sparring with his own party taking aim at critics of his new executive actions tweeting that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is a Republican in name only saying he has quote gone rogue. Again, this foolishness plays right into the hands of the radical left Dem's SAS tearing into trump's decision to circumvent stimulus negotiations in Congress calling the move unconstitutional slap comparing the actions to President Obama's signing of executive orders after lawmakers could not reach consensus orders that trump himself frequently criticized. The country was in based on executive orders right now Obama goes around signing executive orders. It's a basic disaster you can't do it in theory is opposed to you know the old fashioned way get everybody into a room and get something that people agree on trump was not in the room getting lawmakers together instead spending the weekend at his Golf Club in New Jersey as questions linger over whether the actions will survive legal challenges, members of the administration struggled to even explain them.

What we are doing is entirely within the executive capacity of the president. That's White House press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany. Defending Trump's move. Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse criticized the executive orders calling Trump's actions Unconstitutional slop. ABC is Katherine Walters joining us She's in Washington D. C. You're watching this unfold. Catherine Sass not alone in his criticism, but the president fired back at the senator. Yeah, he definitely fired back at him. Mary said that he has gone rogue, the president and the administration. They gave himself this self imposed deadline of last Friday to come to an agreement with Democrats and agreement that never came to fruition here. So the when Let alone signing. You Know one executive order a three memorandum over the weekend. And, frankly, is you mentioned that on and other Republicans. But, of course, all the Democrats raising concern about his authority to act unilaterally here since Congress handfuls of the power of the purse Now they also raise the fact that he's Cover. You know four different buckets. They cover extending on point and benefits covering the payroll tax, curbing evictions and deferring student loans. They don't address a number of of other items that need funding such a cool additional aid for testing in vaccine development support for that PPP of program for small businesses, So that is another thing that Democrats are worried about here. And the question is, Do you know what it'll get back to the negotiating table were so waiting to hear what Happens asleep between Democrats and White House negotiator debate for that extra 400 bucks and unemployment benefits. The president is taking that money from the Natural disaster fund, and that's right before what a lot of people expect to be a very active hurricane season, and the feds would pay 300 bucks states would have to pay $100. How do you force states to pay that money is on interesting issue because there's a lot of confusion among governors as to how this plan would be implemented to that 400 Dollars, 300 of which the federal government will agree to pay. Now it's a question of units and whether the state will pay $100. But as of right now, the way the order is written in the way that the Department of Labor has so far given guidance city states in order to even get that $300 from the federal government What it needs to make a commitment to pay that $100 so reading from the order is not entirely clear how this would be implemented states to be able to move around Suns that they've already allocated and other portions of their budget. But it's something that Republicans and Democratic governors have in a way Stern's about and where additional funding, for example, would come for schools and other items that may need to fund in the fall. Do the president's actions really have as much power as he's saying they do? Yeah, another question that debate as well. We'll see how the $400 program hands out here. It already seems like there's a great deal of confusion over at the other is the executive order on renters. The one with the curb. Eviction is unclear whether that really has much Keith because it doesn't say that it's going to stop affection, just orders the federal government and federal agencies to attempt to slow these down, so that's one thing we're hearing from Democrats on Capitol Hill over the weekend and today after the president sign, he's memoranda, and these orders is they don't really carry much weight, but they don't really have a Keith as some of the supporters of these orders.

Bailouts might not be popular, but there is no Plan B for a pandemic

"Stocks have come crashing down because of the corona virus the Dow is now thirty five percent lower than its record high last month it's no wonder companies all over the country are saying they need a bailout Congress is preparing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to help them but not everyone thinks that's a good idea as NPR's Jim zarroli reports just in a matter of days the bottom fell out of the U. S. airline industry here's Nicholas Calio of the trade group airlines for America on CNBC today I've never seen anything like it no one has the speed and degradation of the business has been just mind boggling and it's not just airlines under siege cruise ships restaurants even native American casinos have seen their revenue fall off a cliff and they're lining up for help president trump says these companies aren't to blame for what's happened and he's made clear he's ready to assist them we're also looking to help companies such as the airline industry within the airline industry and we'll be doing that for Republicans who bitterly opposed the Obama administration's auto bailout the idea of extending federal largesse to companies hurt by this epidemic is hard to swallow here's Nebraska senator Ben Sasse this week if you're an industry with a good lobbying team you're told the line up to the door of the treasury department and get the line because bailout after bailout is probably in the offing and former U. N. ambassador Nikki Haley dislikes the idea of an airline bailouts so much that she resigned from Boeing's board yesterday opposition notwithstanding Congress is plowing ahead with the rescue bill Republicans in the Senate have proposed a one hundred and fifty billion dollar plan for distressed companies there would be a separate pot of money for airlines and air cargo companies says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell we're not talking about a taxpayer funded solutions for companies that made mistakes we're talking about loans for their part Democrats want conditions attached to any rescue money like promises not to cut jobs and they want more of it to go to fund unemployment insurance for the hundreds of thousands of people getting laid off however the money is distributed the rescue poses big problems says Jeff Myron director of economic studies at the Cato Institute this is just gonna end up being a big transfer to those industries that are politically well connected and can paint a case that makes it look as though they were especially hard hit by the by the epidemic Myron says once Congress starts handing out money where does it stop why not rescue universities or even sports teams they've been hurt by the virus to Dennis Kelleher is president of the Wall Street reform group better markets he says a lot of companies have been badly managed in recent years and may not deserve to be saved they borrowed too heavily for example and often the money went not to their employees but to fund share buybacks that just made their stockholders wealthier taxpayers should only have to provide aid to companies that are vital to the United States and only companies that otherwise act in a responsible manner Kelleher points out that the big Wall Street bailout of two thousand eight proved to be especially on popular with the public with lasting political a fax and he says the onus is on Congress to do a better job this

Romney, Sasse break from GOP on Trump's China remarks

"Of the eighty five Republicans on Capitol Hill of CNN have contacted to see if they have concerns about president trump's call for China to investigate the Biden clan few have responded congressman will heard on new day. This morning called terrible senator. Ben Sasse says it's a matter for American not Chinese Law Senator Mitt Romney gave them more. I most of the president's comments saying today quote when the only American citizen President trump singles out for China's investigation is his political opponent in the midst is to the Democratic nomination process. It's strange credulity suggest it is anything other than politically motivated. He goes on by all appearances. The president's brazen in an unprecedented appeal to China to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling but that was it really for Republicans with misgivings Senator Senator Marco Rubio for instance on the other hand says we're all over playing the president's comments. I don't think it's a real requirement again. I think he did it. The two GIG you guys. I think he did it to provoke you to ask me and others and get outraged by it. I said I mean he plays violin and every falls right into that's not a real request request.
