But you guys can judge for yourself. So let's get to this next story. The intercept has obtained audio of conservative democratic. Senator joe manchin and a call. He had with billionaire donors. Now it's honestly a rare glimpse into how our system of legalized bribery. Works and honestly what mansions calculations are in regard to domestic policy and some of the ridiculous public statements. He's made Speaking out against the agenda that biden has put forth in the name of bipartisanship. We all know that bipartisanship is ridiculous. Considering the fact that republicans have failed to pass any legislation along with democrats even when it came to the capitol hill riots and a commission to investigate them mansion. Couldn't get the ten republican senators necessary to vote in favor of that. So republicans were able to block that effort using the legislative filibuster in the senate. So he's been getting a lot of heat and i've been wondering if he's noticed all that heat he has and he's trying to work with these billionaire donors to get these leftist off his back. Now let me give you a few details before we get to these video clips The meeting was hosted by the group. No labels big money. Operation co founded by former senator.

"senator joe manchin" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"So i think mansion may wanna wait until there's a second vote on january six commission which is what really i think started down this path but i think we're going to see the democrats caucus with mansions cinema and everybody there and begin to work through the reasonable options. That mansion himself has said he would support the one that Al franken and i have proposed including talking filibuster elements so you really put the burden on the minority moving the number to fifty five and in an ideal world also making that Present and voting ways as he said himself that shift the burden. Back to the minority. They're not gonna wanna have those burdens. Were still a little ways away from actually getting the right strategy in the right approach that all the democrats would support. You'll need all fifty and the vice president in the chair but we're getting much closer and i think it's one hundred percent clear that we will get no more than one or two votes if any among the republicans for this very reasonable bill in which mansion tried to reach out to them with the voter id issue and then we're on a path towards something positive and it would be something that should make us all very happy car. We've come a long way from some democrats during the presidential primaries That joe biden was still working in the old world. Where you could do business with mitch. Mcconnell there he was yesterday saying that mitch is going to say no time he always does. And then today mitch of course says no exactly the way. The president predicted. So joe biden. Expected us expected mitt mitch mcconnell anyway to be exactly where he is tonight. President biden knows what's happening and he's been paying more attention. I think books give him credit for. But what i think. President biden needs to do chuck schumer needs to do is treat a senator mansion like ever dirksen was treated by lbj in the passage of the voting rights act in nineteen sixty five which is to put his arm around and even though the republicans listen to this can be your legacy that you can save our democracy being the one who makes this happen. That's how lbj got dirksen to lead the fight in the past the voting rights act of nineteen. Sixty five on a bipartisan basis. To get around southern democrats who are trying to block it. We'd be now. Is the white house senator. Schumer anyone else. Speaking with senator mansion state. Listen this can be your legacy that you're the one that can turn back the tide that we've had really since twenty thirteen with the supreme court. Cutting the voting rights act. You can restore american democracy. What we saw january sixty could respond to that and things is all this can be about. Cars would call an allred. Voting rights expert former voting rights lawyer supporting the mansion compromise which has also been endorsed by stacey aprons. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. Getting your important and expertise on this and norm ornstein as always. Thank you very much for your perspective on this bill lawrence and coming up today. The united states supreme court must seven seventy-two decision once again upheld the affordable care act and joe biden once again used his. Most famous phrase ever to describe. What a very big deal. That is what happens to the party. That has been lying for ten years that it is going to repeal and replace obamacare. David plus joins us next the president of the united states of america. Barack obama and that bleep comes in the middle of. What is the most memorable quote. A at the joe biden ever delivered as vice president of the united states. He didn't want us to hear what he said to. President obama at the signing of the affordable. Care act eleven years ago but today kind of product today joe biden set it again when the supreme court ruled seven to two in favor of the affordable. Care act on a lawsuit brought by eighteen. republican state. Attorneys general led by d. Most legally unhinged attorney general in the united states texas attorney general. Ken paxton supreme court crushed the republican attorneys general. Today saying that they did not even have the right to file that lawsuit after the supreme court ruled today. President biden said has famous phrase once again in code in a tweet with millions of people relying on the affordable care act for coverage it remains as ever a. b. f. d. and it's here to stay so what happens now to the political party that has been lying to its voters for a decade that they are going to repeal and replace obamacare joining us. Now is david plus former campaign manager and white house senior advisor to president barack obama. He is an msnbc political analyst. David this feels like never know but it feels like the last chapter of the republican attempt to get rid of the affordable care act. I think that's right lawrence. I mean that was the original big lie. They spent a decade essentially defined by the lie. That somehow they're going to get rid of other portable act replaced now by their effort to destroy democracy so they failed on Eliminating health care for millions. They're a very much alive. In their efforts to counter democracy had listened. Wouldn't it be great over the next few months. If we could say the affordable care act his alive forever and the filibuster as we know it is dead for. It's kinda where we need to go as a country. But yeah i mean i think listen was evacuated for me as what twenty twelve reelect which is a while ago you know that was really one of the affordable care act began to grow in popularity because the reality benefits were available people. It wasn't just theory. And i think you see enrollment numbers and so again i think the lesson there as as you remember lars there was a lot of democrats not many but enough after ted kennedy passed away. Who said we need to give on health healthcare and wherever given up we'd be sitting here ten years from now with tens of millions of people without healthcare lot of people would have died. A lot of people would be a lot more sicker than they were. They'd be bankrupted. So the lesson here is when you've got the power. The democrats have it right now. Are you gotta use you. Gotta use it to the maximal amount. You can to help as many people as you. Because you never know when that's going to change so by the way if you were given up i it's hard for me to think of. What is the number to obama administration domestic legislative achievement. This number one is so big and so important and so historic that. I know that you guys pulled off more than that. but imagine. imagine wh- what this legacy would be a tonight without it. Well i have a list. Of course. And i still think it'd be a strong legacy but yeah i mean you know we a healthcare in this country reform in a major way. They made healthcare bail just about everybody had alluded the country. For one hundred years we obviously had medicare and medicaid but So that was i think. President obama senator harry reid. Nancy pelosi back then held everybody together in saying if we don't do it now it could be ten twenty thirty years before the opportunity so whether it's infrastructure tax reform changes protecting democracy immigration reform optimistic. Today i was yesterday. I thought your pryatta sculptured Who's your guest was super lunatic. Because i think you can see a pathway now where maybe enough senate democrats say okay. Enough's enough protecting our democracy on these economic measures on on immigration reform. We can move forward. So what is the lesson from the passage of the affordable. Care act in that. Tragic and dramatic moment Senator ted kennedy died and at that moment the democrats had before he died. Sixty democrats in the senate sixty votes. You went down to fifty nine and it did look like all is lost. It looked just plain hopeless But somehow it got done. What's the lesson that you take from that into the legislative struggles that are going on now. Voting rights infrastructure know. You're a great student of history so you not so first of all when you have an opportunity when you have the power it's going to fleeting maybe last number of years in cycles. Maybe a dozen so the things that you ran on that you think are important for the country they had Tend to think when you do the right thing for the country. There's good politics follow. But but even if not. I'll never forget..

Senate resumes work on pandemic relief bill after jobless-benefit deal is struck
"A compromise with moderate Democratic Senator Joe Manchin after nine hours of negotiations over the nearly $2 trillion Covad 19 relief bill. By day's end mansion got the deal he wanted on emergency jobless benefits. But why didn't Democrats have all this figured out? Before taking their relief package to the Senate? Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen addressed this on CNN. Look, these bills have a large number of provisions. Senator Mansion had expressed concern about this provision earlier on, and this was just a question of working through and we've done that. We expect possibly hundreds of Republican amendments, and we'll go through each of them. But at the end of the day, we will get this bill passed well will likely continue through Congress and then make its way to President Biden's desk. When it comes to

"What deal was reached tonight? Right? Well, it's a familiar name that was holding things up. It's a senator with incredible amount of leverage, and we've seen that with the president's nominees as well. But Senator Joe Manchin essentially has held things up in the upper chambers. Since about 11 A.m.. While Democrats hashed out an agreement over unemployment benefits. I mean, it seems like earlier that they had reached a deal. Apparently, Senator Manchin was not comfortable with that deal s. Oh, just a few moments ago, they announced that they've come to a compromise that Senator Manchin has signed off on its not substantially. To substantially different than what was agreed Tonto earlier that today, But he did manage to shave off a few weeks of unemployment benefits and sort of, um, establish an income threshold for Laid off workers who will be receiving tax relief on their unemployment benefits. But it's been a really long day, but it's really just the beginning of things in the Senate tonight. Since the bill is hit Congress there were other changes like lowering the income ceiling for those eligible for those direct payments, so those will now go to fewer people. Is it worrying some on Capitol Hill that this is just not gonna be enough to help Americans on a broader scale? I think certainly we've seen some a little bit of consternation from progressives and even some House Democrats. For example, Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman tweeted earlier, essentially, all paraphrase it was like you know, whether we doing why are we lowering unemployment weekly unemployment benefits? Why're we limiting Um, you know, stimulus tracks. Why are we taking these steps? You know where the party in power? We shouldn't have to be doing things like this. But you know what we're certainly seeing is the interplay between you know Members of the party that wanted you those things. And folks like Senator Manchin, who you know, holds an enormous amount of leverage in the Senate just because there's just such a narrow majority for Democrats there. Lastly, are there any other possible snags that could arise here to slow down passage of this bill, especially when it comes to Republican opposition? Well, we are hopefully heading into what's called Vote a Rama tonight, and it's exactly what it sounds like. It's sort of a marathon all night voting session on amendments in which any lawmaker can propose an amendment and force a roll call vote on it. This was supposed to start earlier today like eight hours ago and was held up by Senator Manchin. So hopefully it'll get underway soon. But you know, Republicans have plans to make it really is painful as possible. And, you know, I would imagine that they'll try to squeeze Democrats on any number of fronts. But, you know, hopefully after the ordeal today I would think that you know the party would try and hold together and forced immunity on things, but we'll see. It's it's just the beginning of probably a very long night. It's been a long day for you. So we'll let you on that note. Caitlin Emma. Thank you so much from politico. All right, take care.

"For the first time in years Republicans are playing defense on healthcare and right before the midterm elections here to tell us more is Ramesh pun Aroo, senior editor at the national review and a columnist for Bloomberg opinion. How are the Republicans playing defense on healthcare well up until now? In the last several election Republicans have been able to campaign against ObamaCare and really have an almost surely negative message about that without having to be accountable for their own health policies this time around they're playing defense because they're under attack for the health legislation that they try to enact over the last two years, and in particular, they're on the defensive about the question of whether they were stripping away protections for people with preexisting conditions. So where do you see the fallout in Senate races? There are number of Senate races. Where predecing conditions have become a very strong issue for the Democrats in West Virginia and Missouri. The Republican Senate nominees are attorney general for their state. And they've signed onto a lawsuit that it's successful festival would strike down Obamacare's protections for people with preexisting condition. They say they favor putting new protections in place, but it is put him in an awkward spot, and the democratic incumbents that does Republicans are campaigning against have made the most of that issue in what about West Virginia. West Virginia is one of those two states and state where the democratic Senator Joe Manchin has actually in one of the dads taking the shotgun to lawsuit to to show how hostile he is to it. How Republicans are are having trouble. They're not really making a lot of headway with their case Dave favor protections for people with preexisting conditions, but lightly different ones from the ones that are in ObamaCare. So what about the legislation that they want to introduce? So there are a couple of different pieces of legislation floating around on Capitol Hill, but one that Senate Republicans have introduced is an attempts to protect Republicans again charge of their against protection for people with preexisting conditions. And if a badly drafted Bill, it doesn't actually achieve much protection. Because it it says it ensures have to cover everybody, but it doesn't say they have to cover every condition. And so obviously that's going to be limited usefulness. If you're somebody who has a chronic health condition and need insurance coverage there, the the odd thing is the legislation that they enacted urging me to try to act last year actually was longer than this essentially messaging Bill that they're trying to push right now are the Republicans actually against coverage for pre existing. Conditions. Well, you know, I think it's a somewhat complicated answer in that. Republican policy experts have been promoting upper righty of ways to take care of people with preexisting conditions, and a lot of Republicans have signed onto legislation that would do that trouble is. A lot of Republican politicians really are not conversant with the issue. And honestly have given it a ton of spot. And so when they come under criticism for this. They're not going to be able to go back to the details legislation and explain that. No, actually, some thought was put into this not buy them specifically, and they do have some solutions offer so Romesh since Republicans ran against ObamaCare for so long. Should they have had a plan in place to replace it absolutely is to the Republican credit that they were not prepared for the possibility that they would will be on healthcare. Now part of the problem is that they spent most of toy sixteen thinking, they were gonna lose the presidential election. And so this is going to be a theoretical issue for them. But then Trump won, and they sort of had to scramble to come up with something. And they they carried out they didn't. We all have agreements on this issue. This is Ben a debate issue for about a decade now, and it shouldn't have Republicans. Thanks for match. That's Ramesh senior editor at the national review and a columnist Bloomberg opinion.

His first accuser who has no backup either. It's going to be an interesting way joining me to talk about it and the race for the Senate to stop as fiasco. We've got to pick up some seats Patrick Morrissey. He's the attorney general west Virginia's running against Chuck Schumer lookalike Joe mansion in West Virginia and in forty days, seventeen hours, fifty two minutes and forty seconds. They will get the vote attorney general Morrissey, welcome. How are you? I'm doing great. You. It's always a pleasure to be back on your show. Thank you. Well, tell us a little bit about how the supreme court controversy. Brett cabinet is playing in West Virginia. I think people are getting very very upset that you have these obstructionist in Washington. The Senate Democrats that are clearly trying to orchestrate these attacks you wait all summer, and then you call for delays and delays and delays, and you're using it to build this PR campaign against judge Cavanaugh. And look, I'm the guy as a a civil prosecutor would say get to the bottom of everything. And I believe that every allegation take a look at it. You know, that the Senate Democrats are forfeiting their opportunity to be in charge. They should not be in charge. Given the absolute political posturing that they're doing because they're willing to do all sing imaginable in order to delay. This hearing date or have waited they're trying to gain political advantage. They were losing their moral authority to lead because how badly they're handling this. Right now, and I'm very disturbed about it. And I'm really concerned that Senator Joe Manchin the guy that people are talking about is being open minded, he's allowing the Senate democrat leadership Feingold and Schumer to get away with this unbelievable, political attack this obstruction, and it's disturbing you. I think you met Senator Feinstein Feingold being the old Senator from Wisconsin. Well, she came out last night after this New Yorker piece and and called for delay. And I find this so outrageous, I hope Republicans vote for Kevin de in California. Because in the New York Times reported today, the New York Times, the New York Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate the New Yorker story about MS Ramirez and could find no one with firsthand knowledge, MS Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recall the incident and told some of them she could not be certain Mr. Cavanaugh was the one who exposed himself. So you've got a witness contradicting their own store. You've got no corroboration Dianne Feinstein calls for a delay. And Joe Manchin says what nothing? Well, right now, Joe mansion says nothing and look Joe mansions whole posture has been gives Senator Chuck Schumer tying to destroy the nomination pretend that you're open minded. And obviously, Joe Manchin is incapable. Metaphysically of being the last vote ever crossed the line and support President Trump. So what does he do says? Well, he's open-minded. He stretches us along he stretches this along. And then obviously, he gives Schumer and Feinstein and all the wacky people up there. The ability to try to obstruct and delay it just not right on any level. I think Senator Joe Manchin should be ashamed of himself. He needs to resign from the leadership of Senator Chuck Schumer's team, and he needs to do that right now. Now, would you vote for judge Cavanaugh? I always said that I'd be supportive of judge cavenaugh and nothing has changed. I think we should move to a vote a very quickly. Now, I've said that we should always look at every allegation that's proper in our system people deserve to be heard. But what you're seeing here is an absolute hunt were waiting and waiting till the eleventh hour they've clear that they're doing it for political motives, it's not right on any level and people should be outraged. Now when you go out and campaign West Virginia, which is very pro Trump do people understand the suggestion attack on Trump. Oh, this absolutely is. I mean, they're looking to do anything to bring this president down. They know people know that President Trump's the nominating good rule of law. Judges people were highly qualified and experienced, and so they see the Democrats and the party of Senator Joe Manchin, and let's see Joe Manchin now. Increasingly as being complicit in the Orangemen to deny President, Trump important policy wins were appointment wins. And I don't think that's hoping Joe Manchin. That's one of the reasons why we've literally crawled to within the margin of error in the polls, we're going to defeat Senator Joe Manchin because people know Senator Joe Manchin out liberal, Washington dishonest, Washington liberal, and I think that's not going to help them on election day as dishonest Washington liberal, the question should be how much do you win by because the state is very pro-trump. Right. I mean, when the president comes in campaigns with you, I saw one of the rallies, it was just massive. It really is massive. I think if you look at the the numbers trumpet remains very popular. He's sitting at about sixty one percent approval rating on a state people understand this policies mean good things for a state straw, highly qualified judges he's. Regulating in core. Areas that are helping to kickstart the West Virginia economy and those Trump tax cuts. They are hoping West Virginia the doubling of the standard deduction the lowering of rates. These new opportunities owns there's so many positive things that he's doing people were very pleased with the president and West Virginia jobs are growing that's a pretty good combination. That's one of the reasons why to tell you Senator Joe Manchin is the odd personnel in West Virginia. What now is the West Virginia media pursuing every day? They ought to be asking him. What do you think about the Ramirez? Smear in the New Yorker. What do you think about the conditions demanded by Dr Ford? What do you think Diane finds every day? This is the number one story, I'm doing three hours on it today. It will be every hour of the week this week on the radio. I will be talking about Justice cavenaugh judge count send to be Justice. Kevin is the West Virginia press demanding Joe Manchin. Answer questions. No. I mean, the reality is Joe Manchin needs to answer these questions as to why he's part of a leadership team run by Chuck Schumer. That's engaged in trying to destroy this. President people forget that Joe matches. Not just a vote for Chuck Schumer. Joe mansions, actually part of the leadership team that develops policy and communications for the democratic caucus in the Senate. And I just for the life of me candidates stand. Why he remains in that position as thinks that's consistent with West Virginia value, it's not, and that's where people are going to advance my candidacy on the conservative fighter who is trying to constantly help improve the lot of citizens of the state of West Virginia. Joe Manchin is into obstructing crop. And once again, he's a dishonest Washington liberal who's lost his way. Now, a Washington Post reporter, Dave Weigel friend of mine has tweeted out Joe mentioned opponent. Who's been persistently behind in the polls calling for a fast boat on cavenaugh? Are you persistently behind in the polls? I see the real clear politics polls. But have you got polls show your in margin of error territory? We we do. In fact, we're aware of multiple polls that are showing us right there. The reality is that all summer Chuck Schumer has liberal allies. And Joe Manchin engaged in a smear campaign against us. But fortunately, beginning in August, a lot of people came up and then the president came in. And I have to tell you. We went from deficit in the polls when we started rising rapidly. And we all right now in the margin of error. We feel very good with our momentum. And the reason is very clear, I'm the conservative fighter who has a strong record of getting things done for the state. I'm going to advance the Trump jobs agenda, whereas on the other side, a dishonest Washington liberal in Joe Manchin, and he can't get anything done for the state, and he's part of the leaders. Ship team that will struck and final analysis the blue bubble inside the blue bubble here in the beltway, and in New York, and in Silicon Valley, and in LA, they're telling each other that the controversy over judge cavenaugh is helping make a Blue Wave. I think the blue bubbles nuts. I think this controversy because it's a smear is helping people like Patrick Morrissey. What do you think? Look, I think that people West Virginia getting more motivated to vote they're sick and tired of the, you know, the slick policies in the approach of Senator Joe Manchin who says one thing in West Virginia and then votes another way in Washington, and they're going to say no to that. The one thing we need to do is we need to make sure we keep up with the Schumer money machine. And we're working hard every day. I ask anyone listening. Go to our website, Patrick Moore.

"For them the gas are real tight spot on this is joe matt senator joe manchin patrick more city attorney general from west virginia made it his business to challenge the obama administration on obamacare air energy issues for the state for the state of west virginia which was tremendously hurt by the by the coal issues and things that donald trump ran on as then candidate trump and now president trump and fulfilling this and voting for cavanaugh is something that's going to be a real tough issue i'm gonna go out on a limb and say that joe manchin joe donnelly and maybe even heidi heitkamp it will be very difficult for them to vote against lisa murkowski susan collins we'll have a hard time they voted for cavenaugh for the dc court and the republicans yeah yeah and i think they're going to have a these republican moderates are going to have a hard time saying no to the president on this but if the issue becomes roe v wade somewhere around sixty or even seventy percent of the country wants roe v wade to be kept that wants abortion to remain legal is that a political winner for republicans is that i mean i i asked my political better i think there are some thank you for that i think there are some areas in which as i mentioned in some of these suburban house races i think even though the house doesn't vote on these things it will perhaps energize the democratic base even more it's tended in the past to be more of a voting issue for the court generally for republicans than democrats and and that's interesting whether or not this is going to help turn that tide because for the less generation is has been a rallying cry for consumption court commits why donald trump got the nomination despite the fact that historically for abortion rights it's because he made a promise for for this list and you know that he's picking from on the supreme court democrats haven't been his energized or you know one of the reasons i think that that judge barrett wasn't selected here was because she was a bright red flag on this row versus wade issue and my guess is that cavanaugh is going to be easy suv on this question so they'll have to impute to him the intent of doing away with rovers his weight and they'll cite the president's statements on it but it will create enough for those people who want to be with them with four collins former hausky now that could change in the pressure could become enormous but i expect that he will be very schooled in practice answering there is a quote that he had said earlier during an earlier confirmation hearing where he talked about that that it's precedent right bret cavenaugh has been on a rocket ride to the supreme court for a long time one reason why democrats delayed his nomination for so long in during the george w bush presidency is they knew he looked like a future supreme court justice and chuck schumer was asked him a whole bunch of questions about ruby wade which he answered by saying i'm just a lower court judge i have to follow roe v wade like any other precedent it's been reaffirmed that's an answer that works well when you're being nominated for an appeals court now do you have to figure out other ways to dodge it mannix i gotta get gotta get another break in just had exactly who is brad kavanagh detailed look at his background nets and what he's ridden about later the very latest on that dramatic rescue in northern thailand which has just resumed its daytime now there is still four.
