"Welcome back to the Jason and House Memorial Day special here on Fox News radio. What I'd like to do now is share some of the behind the scenes stories from my time in Congress. Proving that yes, believe it or not, Politicians are people too, and let me get started with this. I just happen to share my birthday March 26th with none other than Nancy Pelosi. Now I know those who serve in Washington are always criticized for not reaching out across the aisle. But when it came to our shared birthday I did dry. I thought I'm gonna invite her to lunch. And so I write. Write her a note. And I'd say, Um, uh, Madam Speaker now, Lord more recently and when I was there in Congress, I was like the same time is Barack Obama. Nancy Pelosi's The speaker and And I said Madam Speaker, um we We share a birthday. I'd like to go to a lecture. I suggest we go to five guys and let's get some burgers and some fries. I never got a response. Not a smile. I'd see her on the floor like every every week all the time. Not a smile, not a little note back. Not nothing. She was just Hold his ice, but I thought it was kind of funny and high school went to five guys. Too bad She didn't join me. Here's another one that proves that even those in government have the same problems and the same basic needs as you do. As the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, I held a hearing with former FBI director James Comey as the sole witness. Concerning the agency's handling of the Hillary Clinton email server investigation a very serious matter. But what you didn't know is how Mr Comey passing of an offer. For a break in the proceedings nearly came back to haunt him. This hearing had been going for hours. I mean ours now, when they go this long we usually as the chairman, I would go to one of my staff and how it slipped them a note. Or I tell him in advance hit. Look, if you need a humanitarian break like if you need to go the restroom. No problem. Just let me know. You know, letter staff know and then all go into recess. For like 5 10 minutes so you can use the restroom. So this thing is going on and on and I can I could see where we're going that he thinks it's going to end but it's not going to end. And so I say to Because the rule is in the house. Each member gets five minutes to question the witness. There was only one witness and we were getting near the end. But there's a little known rule that he probably hadn't experienced before. That was going to make this hearing go long. So our staff scribbles a note and says, Would you like humanitarian break and the note comes back and I read it. It says, Um, the director is going to power through this. So I invoked a rule that allows the chairman of the committee and equal time for the ranking member. That is, in this case. The Democrats Elijah Cummings, where I can ask 30 minutes uninterested. Questions all the way through. And then Elijah Cummings, turn it over to him who since passed away. Uh, for another 30 minutes. Plus, we get to close out, So that was another gosh, probably our in 20 minutes and I could just see him squirming and I've just smiling like I tried to give you a chance. Tried to tell you tried to tell you Go the bathroom, But you wouldn't listen to me when listen anybody James Comey, So he did power through it. But boy, he scooted out of there pretty fast after that hearing, too. Okay, many of you of razzed your friends from time to time, But certainly this isn't something that happens in the hollowed halls of Congress. Well, yes, again. I'm sure you're familiar with the fact that different members of Congress preside over the house or the Senate in the daily Course of doing business. I had the honor of doing it many times while I served But the first time is something I will never forget. I've got the gavel. I'm standing up there and people are going to come in for the first vote. And as they come to the floor, there was a congressman at the time named Dean Heller. For those of you from Nevada, he went on to become The senator Dean Heller, but at the time he was in the House of Representatives. And I promise you this was a very funny scene because People are now milling in there, and he went raid up on what's called the well the floor of the house there in the well which is as close as you can get to where those clerks sit. And kind of with his hands cupped around his mouth. He started yelling, and there's a lot of commotion on the floor. It's a rambunctious place. This is not a place of serenity. It is not reverent. Um, it's kind of what gives it the flavor and its history, and it's just the way it is. And so deep. Dean's looking right at me, and he kind of points to me, and then he starts yelling at me. Shame. Shame on the House of representatives, and he was basically mocking that I was there in the chair and it made me laugh and smile like I could not help it, so he kept doing it. Shame. Shame on the House of Representatives. And it was just one of those great moments that I don't know. I thought I'd share with you is one of the things that happen in Congress. One final story, although each member of Congress has a paid professional staff toe Help guide them and assist them and serving in either the House or the Senate. There are also plenty of pages and interns on Capitol Hill that help with the everyday tasks that need to be done. And they often feel pressure to get it right. I once had an intern who we sent to get lunch, and we gave him enough money to buy for himself, too. But when we didn't see him come back for an awfully long time we began to get worried. Turns out he had lost the money by accident and was worried about getting fired. He wasn't in wound up doing a great job for us. But that sort of tells you what it's like for people in that role. They get anxious about getting it right for what can be at times some very demanding people. My daughter. Ellis spent some time on Capitol Hill as a Senate page, and I asked her which member of the Senate was actually the nicest member of the Senate. By far hands down, Senator Thune. He was so nice, because yes. Is the Senate page. Like the youngest employee? You're really intimidated And the reason why he was the nicest wasn't because he did any like grand gestures of kindness, but every time he came through the Senate Onto the Senate floor and we would hold the doors open. He was released from my memory. He was the only one that said Thank you, and he said it every time and it went a long way like it made me You know, I feel like someone asleep East noticed us, and we're grateful that we were there and keep coming. Chat with us, too. If we were, you know, had some down time. And it was funny How many senators would never say Thank you Like the whole time? We're there never said thank you. Yes. Another Thune. He was he was awesome. Thank you, Ellis for reminding us that yes, even on Capitol Hill, I thank you goes a long way. And on.

"Las Vegas chamber. Made it known that he was looking at potentially running for governor. So we now have three Republican candidates that are contemplating running for governor in 2000 and 22 against thieves, Aslak. They would be attorney. Former Attorney General Adam Laxalt, former U S Senator Dean Heller. And now Congressman Mark Amad. Eight. Very interesting to see what happens. It will be real interesting to see how that's gonna all work out materialize, and it'll be interesting to see if there are some rumors that's just like may not want to run again. Who would the Democrats get the run against the Republicans? And you know, in an off year we had I interviewed Victor Jake. So the Las Vegas Review Journal. He felt that a Republican could. In fact when the state of Nevada as a governor, The question is, could we get any other Republicans threw in I don't know. Assembly seats and state Senate seats. It'll be interesting to see. Remember One thing in 22. We have a major election for the congressional, not Congress. Senate. See that Castor and Masters currently holds the remember back when she before she got elected. She was running against Joe Hack. Joe had had a big lead. And he came out against Donald Trump that one day on that one Saturday, along with Dean Heller and hard question Hardy and listen to Mitt Romney. And next thing you know, they got gutted. So who knows? But this could be this would be very interesting. The question is, if if Amun able to run for governor would that mean Adam Laxalt would run for Congress? Dean Heller run for Senate again. These are things that should be considered these air three candidates in the state of Nevada. What do you think about those three candidates running again for higher positions and possibly winning? What's your thought? Would you think about today with regard to the case, But the Trump team is making were guarding Nevada's elections. Thousands and thousands of volts came through. They looked at and they're and they're like, Wait a minute. Here's the proof. Is this enough proof for you to see what happens? It's kind of the judge is going to rule on Friday regarding Trump's trying to overturn into that election. It's interesting to see where this is going. And frankly, will go to the Supreme Court. What would happen if it does go to the Supreme Court for me? I don't know what to think. Joe Biden officially beat Donald Trump in the battle by 3 33,596 votes. About 2.4% points. Many people believe this thing that's turned around. He may get those votes back there, saying this is there. Some of the statistics that we're throwing out there today on Dis is pretty scary. Nevada votes From fake addresses 15,681 from voters listening, listening bacon or commercial addresses. 1506 ballots were cast by dead people, 19,218 by voters who did not live in Nevada and 42,000. 284 double votes. Now, if this is accurate, Even half accurate may not overturn the election, but we got a problem in America with these elections. One the hell are we supposed to do? I was going to just sit back and let this happen. And how is this going? What's going to happen in Georgia? It's imperative that we maintain the Senate. Now, remember, we're going to still be down 2 to 1 because you're gonna look at the press. The White House and the Congress is definitely Democratic. All the numbers in Congress are much tighter. Pretty similar to the tightness in the Senate. But where do we go from here? How does this work? How does this all materialize? This is incredible. Or will they just turned a blind eye on all this voter fraud and give him a pass? I mean for people to sit there and think that there was nothing going on, You must be crazy. With numbers like this. You gotta make sure wonder And remember, um The workers claim voters were allowed to register a vote provisionally without proper identification. An appointment with the Department of Motor Vehicles accepted a sufficient proof of residency when state law requires that that idea for the same day registration These inconsistencies have been been running rampant in Nevada for years. When I look back to the year where I think it was what 14 when we actually had a majority and up in Carson City, and what happens when they're bringing in the highest tax rate increases that we've ever had. This has gotta stop. Ladies and gentlemen, This cannot happen. We need to stand up and fight back. Look, if you let the Democrats run control, they're gonna bring back higher taxes. The affordable care act will become a Mandy. You have to have by insurance. Can you afford it? Especially if you make over the 102 100% limit Because of the ugly we go back to the phones we have will I will. How are you, my friend? I'm find yourself trying to hang in there one day at a time. Oh, you know what? You did a good job and they hurt a little bit about your mother. First of you know, my God bless my blessing God for thank you. It's none of my understanding was that they shouldn't be on your back. But I'm not a doctor. No, no, she's on they got. They got her elevated to a certain degree. Um, she's on. I don't think he called it that I don't know if you can call it a ventilator, but she's intubated. I I'm um, I eat. I don't know what that's that would be considered a ventilator. They have are also on dialysis. And they got are some fluid in there..

So checkmate on the Republicans, which I don't quite get what that is. Well, I think she just realizes it's not a good political move. I think she's a simpleton is is her challenge. Mika Brzezinski, not Nancy Pelosi. No, no, Nancy playing a game of chess. And I think she made the the right move for her side. Yeah. I just I think with all due respect, and that's very little I think it will as the hearings progress, and and then Nadler in shift and Rashida to leave and Maxine Waters and all are howling for impeachment and holding hearing after hearing and holding rallies for impeachment. The whole Nancy Pelosi said six months ago, we're probably not gonna impeach narrative. Just won't hold water. It just won't be important. So I'm not sure how check maybe it is. Check perhaps Jack but not checkmate. So anyway, that's big news for Trump or getting ready to talk to Debra Saunders. White House correspondent Las Vegas review journal. Oh, I did see a report somewhere. I don't remember in which newspaper that Trump had. And now, you mentioned it it sounds, right. Trump had backed off criticizing Nancy Pelosi. He had been criticizing are lot. And backed off when she told him privately I'm not moving toward impeachment. So he feels like she's on his side on the whole mon- impeaching thing. And he backed off his criticism over so that's an interesting developed if they did impeach him over something. What would what do you think that would do for his never mind the democratic brand because I think everybody kind of agrees that it's just a mistake to get that going unless you've got an overwhelming case. But what do you think it would do to Trump's reelection prospects? What do you think of the idea that maybe America would be so exhausted by the volatility of the Trump presidency that they might? Opt for something else. Particularly if it's, you know, a moderate Abiden type, well, one of the calculation flack and liver. I don't know one of the calculations was it would really energize the GOP based to turn up. You know, the turnout would just be insane on the GOP could be could be Debra j Saunders is the White House correspondent for the Las Vegas review journal and joins us. Hello, debra. How are you? How are you doing good? We're just talking about Nancy saying impeachments, not a good idea. And the various people are reacting. You know, we're trying to figure out also earlier what percentage of it was cold hard political calculation, and what part of it was big a good American realizing we shouldn't just impeach, you know, willy nilly. It was cold political calculations. What say men did that land with a with a with a with a with a bang in in the DC world last night or or not? We're talking about why did she do this which sort of surprises me because it seems pretty clear. For one thing. There's no way that the Senate is going to convict Donald Trump if he's impeached based on anything, we know now, right? That's right. Exactly. So. Seen this movie before with Bill Clinton. And we know what it did it. It was not the most helpful thing for the Republicans. They had to walk around with it for a long time. So Nancy Pelosi. She's writing on the wall. She knows she's got some people who really want impeachment, and she's not going to do too much to rein them in. But she's given cover for moderate, and she's told them. Yeah. You know, not a good idea. And everyone knows it. Every democrat knows that going after Donald Trump to impeach him. As a mistake. They may be doing overplaying the investigation car. I think they are. So I think it was a really savvy thing for her to say, she's a smart look at she didn't get where she is in stay where she is by being an airhead. She's a very smart political operator. Right, right. Yeah. I suppose we could talk about the whole over investigating thing. And if they found out if Trump past past some bad checks in nineteen ninety one. You know, how American maniacs. I don't think it's going to be that. But it's going to be the over inflating the value of his properties to borrow an, you know, then lying about misleading making statements that aren't accurate about the value for taxes. Or I could definitely see him getting some oddly inflated, rents from Russian oligarchs in the nineties that sort of thing. But how does America care? I don't know. He was a New York real estate developer. He has problems in his past. I don't think there's any question. I think people had a good idea about that during the two thousand sixteen elections. I don't so I think you have to find something new that people didn't know that has a material effect on how he governs or how he got there. Right. And that just hasn't happened. So we can touch on the budget really quickly. It's a political document, right? It's an expression of our priorities. The budget the White House just put out. Yes. It is. I mean, I don't even know why they work so hard on it. I don't know. Why either? I think every year when every president puts these out it gets way too much attention in the in the beltway crowd. But why is that Deborah? I mean, I I recently asked someone about that who was in a position to to know, and it was an off the record session. But I mean, it just so let me just say something I k- trying to figure out, and I guess I guess they're donors like it is not an answer. I got that's my what I surmise from an answer that I got off the record fair enough sorta like me announcing once a year, you know, if I can do anything you want. I would eat all vegetables and fruits, and I would run thirty miles a week, and I get a gym membership. And I'd start going to church. Very admirable. Great gone. And then I know nothing ever happens. Okay. Fair enough. So it's it's like a campaign speech in effect the issuing of the budget this. These are our priorities. But not even pretending that they care about the deficit anymore. I mean, they're going to the Trump campaign. He'd get rid of it in eight years. I two budgets ten years. Now, it's fifteen even this charade is wearing thin what what about time there in the White House. Did they spend dealing with the impeachment investigations all that store to sorta stuff versus trying to accomplish some of the things you want accomplish as president? Well, you know, I think the question here is so much. Just Trump spend thinking about it. There's a whole room full of lawyers who are supposed to handle that. And one would like to think that with that happening that the people can just deal with the budget. And you know, all the other departments can work that way. But we what we have is the president. You just can't let it go. And that's the problem. He'd be better off he watch less TV because the cable news channels are not a reflection of what's actually going on in the world. Yeah. Right. Donald trump. Try you've got better access than us. Debra j Saunders White House correspondent for the Las Vegas review journal on the line. You you mentioned in your little notes that there's a briefing health or there's going to be what happened? There was a briefing yesterday. The first since January twenty eight it's pretty exciting. I mean, there's you know there used to be a daily briefing, then it sort of whittled down during the midterms and the government shutdown, and basically we get them. I don't know once every month or two so I I got a question in. Yes. But what was your question? I'll pretend to be Sarah Sanders and answer. I can't hear you. 'cause I have laryngitis was worse yesterday. She's speak up. Well, I asked her why they put funding for to realize Yucca Mountain and in the skinny budget or this, but they don't call skinny budget this year, but why they put it in. And what's the thinking was? That's the nuclear storage facility in in Nevada, Nevada. That's where I'm sorry. Thank you for explaining that. And that's a big that's a big question for the readers of my paper. Because I mean, so a lot of people think of this is a very parochial issue in the. But what bothers me about this issue is that Donald Trump has never really gone on the record and said what he really thinks during the campaign in two thousand sixteen and he said, oh, I'll let you know, I'm going to really look into it. And I'll let you know never did. Then we see it in his budget. Right. And then he was campaigning in Elko Nevada for Senator dean Heller who did not win reelection the Republican. And he said, you know, I thinking this whole Yucca Mountain thing. And now it's back in the budget. So to me, it's it's not just an issue about Yucca Mountain is also an issue about the Trump White House in what it's thinking interesting any thoughts on the Tucker Carlson mess. We're going to be talking about that a little bit later on. Well, Tucker Carlson is somebody Donald Trump loves to watch on cable TV and Tucker has irritated. Not just the left, but he's also irritated. A lot of sort of the people who think they're the big thinkers on the right? The the never Trumpers. And so you got two different groups who are really just ready to pounce on him, and they want they want him to go. But I don't you know, I gotta tell you the third most watched show on all of cable news. So he probably bringing in some revenue and some of the stuff you said ten years ago. I find -fensive sure. But you know, but you know, what else I find offensive trolling through somebody's record for what they said ten years ago, and it didn't make a big stink ten years ago when he said it any he for MSNBC at the time, exactly. Which is extra delicious. That's right. So then it was okay. But now they're going to go after it. I mean, it just looks. That's the kind of opportunism that I think leaves a lot of people cold. Well, and and I tell you what my favorite analysis, and I wish I could remember who said this because I like to give people credit, but. The idea that well, it doesn't matter that it was ten twelve years ago. Well, if that were the case, then if they caught the governor Virginia in black face today, he would still be the governor tomorrow because ten years ago matters earth twenty years ago matters the same as right now. Now, it doesn't it just doesn't. So there is no statute of limitation on words. That's what they're that's what that's what. That's what these folks are saying. And we just know we just know that there is just so devoid of any principle that they don't really mean it, and you're absolutely right. If you look at Virginia, if you look at the governor, and you look at the Terni general and all of this stuff, you can just see that that women and black face and certain kinds of words are just issues that they used to throw at you. And they don't really mean it. Debra j Saunders outraged White House correspondent Las Vegas review journal. Thanks, debra. Good to talk to you. Thank you. Charleston.

Let's look at just two on the hill to turn things around as I reported last fall, the house has been especially focused on veterans suicide lately, particularly on drug related suicides, a Bill introduced last congress by Senator John McCain the veterans over medication Prevention Act would direct the US veteran's affairs department to conduct a study to assess the relationship between veterans' suicides at prescription medicine and the most recent Nevada delegation effort was an effort led by former Nevada. US Senator dean Heller who served on the Nevada veteran's affairs committee called the national suicide hotline improvement act and miss Shannon. I just want to get your take on. What do you think? What's the big focus of yours and your organs? The stations on what needs to happen on Capitol Hill to really help. Turn this crisis around legislators need to make mental health a priority. And they need to invest in research. They need to invest in services to help people with mental health conditions. We need access to mental health care. We need to keep that mental health. Harrity we need to support our veterans and get them access to resources trainings in schools, all sorts of things. So there's so much that our government can do to support. Yeah.

"If you are hoping to rent in Nevada, lady luck is not smiling on you. According to the most recent information from the Nevada housing division. There's a huge gap between need and availability statistics from twenty seventeen show that while the number of rental units needed by Nevada has more than two hundred nine thousand there are just under thirty thousand available for rent. In other words of those of you in the hunt for apartment housing only ten percent of you even have a shot of getting a place. That fact might be why many say the need for housing is the biggest challenge facing the state one of those people is Mike has near sees the president and CEO the development. Authority of western Nevada who told the press last winter that Cincinnati Vada anticipates fifty thousand new jobs twenty twenty it is crucial that we get more housing units. And especially ones that lower income Nevada can afford. So what what a crisis we have here. Seriously, Nevada has just a tenth of the rental units needed and never mind those needed for those coming jobs that he mentioned right, right? Part of the part of the solution. Part of what needs to happen is we need to be building more apartments period. Affordable at any level. Right. That's going to help. With those nine out of ten are several of those who are need rental apartments. There's just not enough homes being built at all. When we increase supply overall. It has some benefit has some affordability positive affordability impacts for higher income people. So middle-class people will feel some relief in what rental costs are if we're building middle-class raven higher level apartment buildings, but the benefit of affordability. We will never trickle down to the lowest income renters. So for them. There's a different set of solutions that are required, and that's to build units. Affordable for those lowest income people and to create an expand rental assistance programs to help bridge the gap between what they earn or bring in each month, and what meant to costs and are these things happening or what's the concern there? So there's some programs that do just that they can make homes affordable for the lowest income people. But none of them are being funded at the scale. That's needed today to meet the increasing demand. I want to give you a chance to to tell us your ideas about what really needs to be done, especially on the federal level to help turn turn things around I want so let let's just look quickly at a few things being done legislatively, ju just a few. Well, a house member last fall Nell Senator Jackie Rosen. She co authored a bipartisan letter urging an increase in funding for the neighbor works America. Former Nevada Senator dean Heller last fall introduce the seniors affordable housing tax credit act at its aim was to incentivize housing owners and developers to rent low to rent to low income seniors. Also last fall Senator Catherine Cortez masto hosted a roundtable with local stakeholders to discuss the need for greater access to affordable housing in Nevada rural communities, so there are some things being done. But I wanted your opinion. What what in your opinion has to be done on the hill. And in the state to really make a difference in this issue that is beyond just talk. And you know, so the thing about the affordable housing crisis is that solving. It is not going to be easy, but it's relatively simple. We know what we need to do in some communities like in Las Vegas, others, Nevada. It's some of the cities we need increased supply. And we need to build apartments that are for those who need it the most. And those are the lowest income people in other communities in some rural areas of Nevada or elsewhere in in the country. There is a sufficient supply, but it's not affordable to the lowest income people. And so it's needed there is rental assistance. So what we need at the national level. And in Nevada is increased supply of homes tar that are Ford for lowest income, but you don't mean subsidizing. Yeah. It has to be federal subsidies, especially when we're talking about the lowest income people. It's not possible for private developers to build and operate housing to cover the costs when they're renting two people who wouldn't be little they're crying. You just can't come costs. It does the math works. A federal subsidies are needed for that. I would say that the Nevada delegation is all certainly paying close attention to this and putting forward some some big solutions. I mean, Senator Heller solution that you mentioned earlier is renters tax credit idea to help. It's another former rental assistance so through the tax code. It would help low income renters bridge the gap between what they can afford, and what rent actually costs his Bill was a pretty big ambitious Bill in that case. Senators Booker Senator Harris have also introduced big ambitious bills with a rhetoric tax credit the national housing trust fund program that I talked about earlier there's a number of proposals out there to significantly expand that program to the scale necessary. So there are positive proposals. We need to just keep building the political will to invest in the.

"senator dean heller" Discussed on KDWN 720AM

"Bridge the gap between what they earn or bring in each month, and what rent costs and are these things happening or what's what's the concern there? So there's some programs that do just that they can make homes affordable for the lowest income people. But none of them are being funded at the scale. That's needed today to meet the increasing demand. I want to give you a chance to to tell us your ideas about what really needs to be done, especially on the federal level to help turn turn things around. So let let's just look quickly too. Few things being done legislatively, ju just a few other. Well, a house member last fall now Senator Jackie Rosen. She co authored a bipartisan letter urging an increase in funding for the neighbor works America. Former Nevada Senator dean Heller last fall introduce the seniors affordable housing tax credit act at its aim was to incentivize owners and developers to rent low to rent to low income seniors. Also last fall Senator Catherine Cortez masto hosted a roundtable with local stakeholders to discuss the need for greater access to affordable housing innovators rural communities. So there are some things being done. But I wanted your opinion. What what in your opinion has to be done on the hill. And in the state to really make a difference in this issue that is beyond just talk, and you know, yeah cetera. So the thing about the affordable housing crisis is that solving. It is not going to be easy, but it's relatively simple. We know what we need to do in some communities like in Las Vegas and others in Nevada. It's some of the cities we need increase supply. And we need to build apartments that are affordable for those who need it the most. And those are the lowest income people in other communities in some rural areas of Nevada or elsewhere in the country. There is a sufficient supply, but it's not affordable to the lowest income people. And so it's needed there is rental assistance. So what we need at the national level. And in Nevada is increased supply of homes tar that are affordable for low income, but you don't mean subsidizing Crisanto. There has to be federal subsidies, especially when we're talking about the lowest income people. It's not possible for private developers to build and operate housing to cover the costs when they're renting two people. There wouldn't be crying. You just can't cover the costs. It does the math works. A federal subsidies are needed for that. I would say that the Nevada delegation is all certainly paying close attention to this and putting over some some big solutions. I mean, Senator Heller solution that you mentioned earlier is a renters tax credit idea to help. It's another form of rental assistance. So through the tax code, it would help low income renters bridge the gap between what they can afford, and what rent actually costs his Bill was a pretty big ambitious Bill in that case. Senators Booker and Senator Harris have also introduced big ambitious bills with a renters tax credit the national housing trust fund program that I talked about earlier there's a number of proposals out there to significantly expand that program to the scale necessary. So there are positive proposals. We need to just keep building the political will to invest in them of the scale necessary. Right. When we return what is the.

More, so in recent elections. Trump only, lost the, state by two points.
