The White House doesn't know. Yet is whether not the Republicans. They're serious about paying for any of the proposed infrastructure spending, not clear that there's real revenue there said they can get together and all be on the same page that will fully pay for it. So The first step in the White House is processed and they think about how to move forward is, are Republicans serious about paying for it? And if they are you can see negotiating starting.

"Once-in-a-generation investment in America": Biden unveils infrastructure plan

"In a generation investment in America. President Biden outline is $2.3 Trillion plan to modernize the nation's infrastructure. During a speech in Pittsburgh, the president says 50 years from now, people will look back and say This is the moment when America won the future on the president's plan to pay forward with the corporate tax hike. Congresswoman from Illa J. A pal of Washington State, says she's not against it. We are for the idea that we should bring some fairness into the tax system. And so that's why we support revenue raisers that air about raising taxes on the wealthiest. Corporations and individuals, representative Joo Pal However, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says the bill is too pricey and will raise taxes on what he calls productive sectors of the economy. It's like a Trojan horse. It's called him Destructor, but inside the Trojan horse is going to be more borrowed money and massive tax increases. Senator McConnell says he doesn't want to engage in the habit of any time we want to do something, call it a national emergency and run up the national debt

"I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro. Joe Biden didn't emotional goodbye to the state of Delaware yesterday, but the new president will continue listening closely to Delaware Senator Chris Coons, who holds Biden's old Senate seat. Koons is abiding, confident and will be a key ally in a divided Senate Senator Coons welcome back to all things considered. Great to be on with you, Ari, Before we talk about Congress. What was it like today to see this man you've been friends with for so many years sworn in as president. Sorry. This was simply awesome Day. I cannot convey just how joyful a moment it was a sea inauguration ceremonies began. There were flurries. It was cold. There was a Gray and threatening Skye. And about halfway through, I could see from the seat. I was on above the platform that the son was about to break out. I turned to my wife and I said Hopeful this is gonna happen. And just before now Vice President Harris took her oath and before now President Biden gave his inaugural speech. The bright sun broke out. It was a beautiful day. It was an historic inauguration. And I think President Biden gave a great address that called on us to look at the moment in our history when we've overcome division when we've tackled great challenges. When we've made progress together. Okay. So now comes the hard part right in in the Senate. One of the first priorities of the Biden administration is this coronavirus relief package worth almost $2 trillion. How quickly do you think that could get past? Well, if Senator McConnell and Senator Schumer seized by this moment, called to unity by now, President Biden are able to hammer out an agreement. Where we can both confirm Joe Biden's very skilled, very seasoned cabinet nominees and work through quickly and impeachment trial responsibly but quickly. Then we'll turn to this significant package the American rescue plan that was laid out last week. We have to because the pandemic is raging at its all time. Worst. We have millions of Americans unemployed, facing eviction, facing loss and other challenges. We could pass it within a month, but it's going to take a lot of work from both sides. I'm chuckling because as serious as the situation is, as you point out, there are three enormous things on the Senate's place plate right now, and the Senate is not known for working quickly, and so how realistic is what you're talking about here? Well, all right. I just witnessed Kamila Harris being seeded to preside over the Senate for the first time. His vice president and the swearing in of three new senators, including Senator Jon Ossoff's and Senator Raphael Warnock of Georgia. If you told me at Christmas time or in late December that we'd have a Democratic majority in the Senate And we have two new Democratic senators from Georgia. I would have said, you know, I'm hopeful and optimistic, but it's gonna take a miracle. Here we are. And the fact that majority leader outgoing Majority Leader Mitch McConnell joined Joe Biden for worship this morning and skipped Donald Trump's departure ceremony from Andrews Air Force Base, and that he has indicated an openness to proceeding with impeachment. Is a small but encouraging signal. And yet some of his Republican colleagues in the Senate just two weeks ago objected to electoral votes affirming Biden's victory. Why do you believe these same colleagues would work with your party and the Biden administration when a real number of them wouldn't even acknowledge that Biden won the election? That's right. Two weeks ago, we had a horrific incident, I think, in part stoked by former President Trump and encouraged by some in this chamber. But after the storming of the capital, half of them changed their position changed their vote. Look, Ari, We've got a lot of hard work in the weeks and months ahead, but if anyone can lead us through this, Joe Biden, Kat Senator Chris Coons, Democrat of Delaware. Thank you very much. Thank you, Ari. He took one last look back at the White House, one last ride in the Marine one chopper looking over the vista of the National Mall, one last moment of pump with a 21 gun salute and one last speech to his supporters. So have a good life..

"We all go. The country is divided and getting more so. Most of us understand that another impeachment trial in the Senate will only exacerbate word of the day exacerbate. Political hatred. So I believe President Biden and Senator Mitch McConnell should both speak out against the trial. This combined, of course, would be criticized by his party. If he did that, and he doesn't like to be criticized. He has that in common with Donald Trump. But don't tell me you want to unite the country, Mr President. If you support an impeachment play in the Senate, because, you know That Million's of Trump voters. Will dislike that Senator McConnell, Republican. Is another story. What is the benefit of Mitch McConnell telling Republican senators That? Well, you might vote for impeachment. It's not a problem. If you do, 16 Republicans must cross over and find Mr Trump guilty. For him to be symbolically removed from office. Of course, he's out of office. So all of this is a show. But instead of saying we don't need this, this is unnecessary. Mitch McConnell is not Doing that. It's McConnell think this is helping the Republican Party. It's not It's dividing it. It's making Democrats stronger. This is not about justice. You can believe whatever you want to believe about Donald Trump, but you cannot prove that he directly incited violence at the Capitol. And as we pointed out, and others have as well, he has exculpatory statements. A few minutes before that horror unfolded at the Capitol. So he would never be convicted in any kind of a cord of anything yet. They're going to drag him into the Senate, and he will not have to be there physically. But they're gonna try to humiliate President Trump Further. Why? Other than hatred and vengeance now? I believe Mitch McConnell does not like Donald Trump. I believe it's personal with Makhan. He is a very arrogant man. I know that firsthand because I dealt with him on case law, which he destroyed singlehandedly. I also believe Mitch McConnell is power mad. And he's mad that he lost his Senate majority position because of the election in Georgia. He blames Trump Trump blames him because McConnell blocked the $2000 Cove. It checks So we have a big mess. But shouldn't all of these politicians in Washington put the country first? What's good for the country? I'll tell you, and it's simple. For us and now proceed with the Biden administration. Put the Trump administration in the rear view. Stop the madness and stop the hatred. I'm Bill O'Reilly and I approve that message by writing. It disagree..

"2020, starting a three on KCRW. Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Windsor Johnston. Senate Democrats are continuing their push for legislation that would more than triple the amount of coronavirus stimulus checks. Speaking on the Senate floor today, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took aim at Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. I hope every American who has their water or heat or electricity shut off or had eviction notices stapled on top of one another to their door. Or had to choose which meal to skip on a given day. I hope they all heard the reason they will not receive $2000 checks is because leader McConnell thinks it could wind up in the hands of quote. Democrats rich friends. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is also increasing the pressure on the Connell. I'm sure Senator McConnell is aware that throughout his state You got thousands and tens of thousands of people living in economic desperation. The House this week passed a measure that would increase to write payments from 600 to $2000. McConnell tied that build two unrelated legislation that would repeal a law that provides liability protections for social media companies and sets up an election Fraud commission. Both are backed by President Trump. The Census Bureau will miss today's deadline for reporting the first set of results from the 2020 headcount. MPR's handsy Lo Wang reports, The delay could jeopardize President Trump's efforts to alter the count before leaving office. In Trump's final days in the White House. The president is seeking to exclude unauthorized immigrants from census numbers that the Constitution says must include the quote whole number of persons in each state. Those numbers are used to determine representation in Congress and the Electoral College for the next 10 years, and federal law says Thursday is the deadline for delivering them to the president. But Cove in 19 and schedule changes by the Trump administration are forcing the bureau to miss that deadline. There's no penalty, but this delay could mean that it will be President elect Joe Biden and not Trump, who receives the numbers. Godzilla. Wang NPR NEWS NEW YORK, health experts and France are criticizing the French government for its slow start to its covert 19 vaccination campaign. As Rebecca Rossman reports fewer than 200 people have been inoculated in France, compared with 42,000 in neighboring Germany. The French government is defending what it calls a cautious approach made complicated by a vaccine skeptic population. Recent survey, conducted by the Ipsos polling group found that only 40% of French people said they would take the Corona virus vaccine. Health Experts, however, say there's no time to waste and are demanding health workers be given priority for the vaccine, which is for now only available to the elderly.

McConnell ties efforts to increase stimulus payments to other issues

"From the Hill newspaper, the Senate appear poised to override President Trump's veto over defense policy bill handing the president's stinging rebuke in the final days of his administration. The issue is likely to come to a head either on New Year's Day or the following day. In a rare Saturday vote. With a group of lawmakers threatening to drag out the veto fight as they tried to leverage the 17 $40 billion defense measure into getting a vote on the House passed stimulus checks Bill here is the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell on the Senate floor. Does the sun it was supposed to finish legislation securing critical tools, training and support for America's armed forces. But the junior senator from Vermont had other ideas. Remember, Senator Sanders spent last summer literally trying to defund our military? Not my words, Mr President, but the title of the piece he published defund the Pentagon. The liberal case are calling. All through an amendment to strip 10% of funding from our service members and decimate our defense budget. Russians aren't cutting military funding. China isn't cutting funding. But last summer, Senator Sanders and fellow Democrats including the Democratic leader voted to make America unilaterally disarm and cut hours left took a break from trying to defund the police to try to defund our armed forces. Their amendment went down in a landslide. But now our colleague from Vermont Again putting political stunts before the needs of our men and women in uniform. Our colleague says he will slow down this vital bill unless he gets the muscle through another standalone proposal from Speaker Pelosi that would add roughly a half a trillion dollars to the national debt, which does not align with what President Trump has suggested that which has no realistic path to quickly pass the Senate. Well, as I've said the Senate will not let our national security be shoved off course, certainly not by centers. Who have spent years 30 years trying to got America's capabilities. While our adversaries continue ramping up, the Senate will stay on this important bill until we complete it one way or another, the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, He was referring to Senator Bernie Sanders, independent from Vermont to caucuses with the Democrats following Senator McConnell on the floor Senate. Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, who said When it comes to these two issues that veto override and the stimulus checks, they should not be pitted against one another. Now, As I said yesterday, they are to two major issues before the Senate right now the annual defense spilled and the vital and important effort to send $2000 stimulus checks to American families. There are only a few days left in this session on the Senate should consider both issues. For a journey. There's a very simple solution to this dilemma. Leader McConnell should bring both measures up for a vote and let the chips fall where they may. I believe both measures. Then the defense override, and the $2000 checks to American families will both pass. But at the very least, the Senate deserves the opportunity for an up or down vote on increasing the individual payments to the American people. So at the end of my remarks, I will ask the Senate to set a time to night. For a vote on the House bill to provide $2000 checks. The Republican leader objected to a similar request I made yesterday and it appears he may be considering a different bill that packages stimulus checks with other unrelated and partisan policies. So I want to be very clear about one thing. There is no other game in town beside the House bill, the on leeway the on leeway. To get to the American people. The $2000 checks they deserve and need is to pass the House bill and pass it Now the house is recessed for the year. Any modification or addition to the House bill cannot become law before the end of this Congress. It's a way to kill to kill the bill. Make no mistake about it, either. The Senate takes up and passes the House bill or Struggling American families will not get $2000 checks during the worst economic crisis and 75 years Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. He did ask for unanimous consent to bring up that bill and Senate Republican leader the majority leader, Mitch McConnell, did object.

How Do Democrats React To Biden Winning The Presidency?

"In republican circles in washington. Dc the scrambled for the lifeboats appears to be underway as it becomes clearer that the ss trump is holed below the waterline monday. The electoral college did as instructed by voters last month and formally anointed joe biden as the president elect following the reluctance of an assortment of chuckling judges to hear any trump's lawsuits. The jig would appear to be up a now. Senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell has often his grudging. Congratulations to the incoming forty-six president on joined with more on this by scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. First of all to senator mcconnell's concessions slash congratulations. How big a deal is that. It's a big deal in the immediate term because it finally tips off that the republican heavyweights in washington are going to accept a president-elect biden now there will be a few house republicans who i think. Make a couple of false on january six which is when you have the formal congressional confirmation of the electoral college vote but by but mcconnell action only put out a statement yesterday. He sent his jeopardy john tune around to legislators to say that that house rebellion amongst republicans would not be very welcome. So i think the immediate issue is slow. Joe biden comes in as the forty six american president but there were onto the next two issues and one of those is whether mcconnell will work with the biden administration or just keep trying to obstruct it and then perhaps the broader issue at least for the republican party is that even if donald trump is water president. He may not be ready to cancel the reality. Tv show yet. So how does the gop try to count. Try to deal with an insurgent trumpism trying to take over the circus. Being mcconnell's acknowledgement is of course roughly the equivalent of admitting that the sun is going to come up tomorrow morning at eight hundred knowledge of reality but how much political calculation is mcconnell. Still making their because ridiculous. Though it is to even stated out loud feels we. There will be now a not insignificant number of trump voters american citizens who feel like senator mcconnell ease in on the plot. It's already out there. I mean donald trump was on twitter. Re tweeting and tweeting messages. Yesterday that mcconnell had sold him out and a very hard right polemicist information free performances. Still influential mark. Levin was calling last night for the resignation of mcconnell his replacement by someone more appropriate but becomes been around for decades. And he's pretty sharp. He's carried water for trump for almost four years. He no longer is facing that issue carrying water for trump facing that issue of word as the gop. Go nuts nuts andrew. We looked at another signal from yesterday after weeks. Indeed months of holding up a corona virus stimulus bill mcconnell was finally discussing it with leading republicans and democrats like the house speaker. Nancy pelosi in other words. We may get a deal by the end of this week. Which would be bipartisan. Which would be a stimulus deal in which neither side gets every thing at wants but it's actually a sign of cooperation now. We'll mcconnell can do that through the spring or will he as he did with the obama administration only a few years ago. Try to block it at every turn. I think that's the big immediate question. In washington even as the republicans try to grapple with what their identity is not post trump but still in the midst of trump. i mean. How difficult is that going to make life full mcconnell and what we might still think of as mainstream republicans in the mean all political parties have a lunatic fringe. That's pretty much on avoidable. But the republican party has been now more or less entirely captured by this poll off. The poll shows that a heavy majority of republican. Voters believed that last month presidential election was rigged despite the fact that not one shred of evidence for this assertion has been presented. Yeah but andrew. I think working at two levels in this new form of twenty-first-century politics and we're not sure if one triumphs or were not sure even if they coexist with each other in some strange political fantasy world and by that i mean what are they mitch. Mcconnell's looking at is you looking at the day to day workings of washington and that is donald trump doesn't have that many troops in the senate. Donald trump doesn't have anybody in the agencies because they all hate him. Donald trump does have sung trump est in the house The mcconnell thinks. Look you know i can deal with those folks and i think in normal times he could can mcconnell deal where the trumpster strongest however which is in this world of the airwaves. The hard right attack These aren't news companies. These are basically propaganda. L. newsmax breitbart and even most of fox. You know kim mcconnell actually deal with that media invective. it's become date after day after day. Which will say if he deals with democrats he sold out. And what if we get the spanner in the works and it may be sooner rather than later that trump says hey guys. I'm running for president in two thousand twenty four and he tries to dominate the new cycle with the day-to-day spectacle of. What's donald going. Do next i. I still think that the idea of a trump is takeover. The republican party is probably not there. But i do think. The trump insurgency at the level of the day to day chatter is still alive because again quick reminder more than half of republicans fifty four percent said in a recent poll that their favorite candidate for twenty twenty four donald. John trump. Well on that happy thought. How big a thing is it going to be. If on january twentieth president trump declines to turn up to watch biden be inaugurated as his successor and perhaps even tries to stage some sort of rival event. Well it'll be as big an event as the media makes it and here you know. The media doesn't make the news but it's got a role to play. It's been a part of the problem in the united states. It's part of the most critical point for america right now since. Nineteen forty five if the media gives attention to trump which tries to override or at least tries to rival. The inauguration play into his hands if the media effectively ignores trump which is a possibility. Believe it or not it just keeps focused on the inauguration and keeps focused on the business to be done in a pandemic in which one of the three hundred thousand americans died. Look trump only only gets spread his particular type of political whether you call it snake oil or poison. If someone's there to buy it is the media doesn't buy it snake oil salesman.

McConnell on coronavirus relief: Senate "ought to pass what we can agree on"

"Billion coronavirus stimulus bill hit another snag on Capitol Hill. Correspondent Linda Kenyon has the latest Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, who sets the floor agenda says No. A comprehensive approach to coronavirus stimulus. Is not the path he will take. It remains my view that we ought to pass what we can agree on, and that means many things. P Peopie vaccine delivery. Additional assistance, health care providers in a variety of other things that are not controversial. What is controversial, he says, is liability protection. This is not just about business is it's about universities about charities. And others who see this developing epidemic of lawsuits headed their way and it's not total immunity. It wouldn't protect you if you were grossly negligent. Would engage intentional misbehavior. Democrats do not support liability protection. They do support aid to state and local governments. Senator McConnell does not a lot of members on our side. Look at the various states that received $150 billion We did in the Caress Act and wonder if this is the monster will need, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says. Of course it's demonstrably need. Senator McConnell has put the jobs of firefighters Ambulance workers, sanitation officers, police officers in jeopardy. Every governor and mayor across the country has been fighting to keep these people working. And McConnell is pulling the rug out from under them. Senator Schumer also says aid to state and local governments is bipartisan. The state and local funding provisions have broad bipartisan support. The National Governors Association and within the Senate, many Republicans support state and local funding. That's why Senator Schumer says the majority leader should allow a vote on a bipartisan, bicameral, covert released bill that includes a more broad approach. Senator McConnell says. That's just not going to happen. Leaving here without a covert relate package cannot happen. The bill might be attached to a year and government funding bill. Even Senator McConnell says it probably won't be the last word. We'll be back out this after the first of the year. Linda Canyon Washington 18 after religious high school

McConnell rejects Dem demand for big Covid relief package, stands by push for 'highly targeted' bill

"Just heard from mitchell about the income. Cliff coming up at the end of the year right. Still though senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell said again today there is not going to be another big corona virus. Relief bill at a congress if it happens at all. It's going to be closer what he was talking about before the election. Something near five hundred billion dollars a skinny package if you will but with unemployment still high and the virus on the rise will that skinny. Bill helped the people who need it most. No it won't bang. Adler is a senior economist at the center for american progress. He writes about this kind of thing. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me As you just heard. Senator mcconnell said once again day He does not see the need for a large relief. Package for this economy What do you think it is very surprising to hear that given where we are in terms of the pandemic but also given what happened earlier this year. If you think about what happened at margin april and cares act and how that help out the economy. We should want more of that. Given numbers you've said Repeatedly said it on twitter the other day and you've said in a piece online Within the past week or so our economic policies are basically geared toward white men. If white men are doing fine then we get the economic policy that white men need. That is correct because if you look at the numbers you look at what happened in april. When we had the peak of unemployment general employment was at fourteen point. Seven percent white men had an unemployment rate of twelve point four percent. That's when we saw the cares act. That's where we saw all the other things and p p and a lot of Spending to help out this economy. Since then the rate for white man has dropped down now to five point eight percent. And so you can. Look at these policymakers all while things are looking good but if you look at it for other groups so for example black men are at eleven point. Five percent so black men had a similar unemployment rate that whiteman had an april. And then you also even look at what's happening with women women last month. Eight hundred sixty five thousand dropped out of the labor force that they're not even counted in unemployment and the only got half that back. But if you look only at white men with five point eight percent on perpetrate then you can say oh we only skinny bill but white men are not the economy everybody's economy and we have to focus on that. Let me ask you one more thing and And i guess it it makes sense given the state of play right now but you wrote the other day As this pandemic has hit home. Lawmakers cannot be counted on to respond to the magnitude of this crisis or any future economic crisis that is fairly bleak that we can't count on on washington to fix this economy when it so desperately needed. But that's the truth. We lost a lot of unemployment. Pete that almost fifty percent and we put in three four trillion dollars into the economy. And the thing is it worked and instead of putting more money back in continuing these things like direct checks or expanded you. Why which people that you know said eight million people. Out of poverty policymakers that on the hands and let it expire and all the way through the election. It didn't happen shocking. Pretty much everybody so of course you know we can't. We can't expect politics because in a position where he would have done it when he's should've done it. We didn't see it so we can't trust him anymore.

Senate to confirm Trump's Supreme Court nominee a week ahead of Election Day

"Later today if you Senate majority leader Mitch, McConnell's predictions proved accurate the US Senate will vote to confirm amy coming Barrett to the US Supreme Court Bar will be the judge that the Republican Party has been able to put on the bench during President Donald Trump's term, and while she may not be the controversial of these herself her. Confirmation is the Republicans have breezily disregarded the convention which they invoked for years go to keep a barrack Obama nominee from even having confirmation hearings on joined with more on this by Christian mcnichols news editor and Claude Harrington associate professor of American politics at Montfort University. Claude first of all is this now actually a done deal is they the remotest chance at all Barrett doesn't get put on the bench? I think it's. All bots jail she seems to be there I. IT's. It's quite staggering to see how fast. The process can move when people actually wanted to unlike 'em time round as you mentioned just a moment ago. So yeah, I would say unnecess- some unanticipated and catastrophe she's had. Chris, the Republicans hypocrisy here is mildly staggering MRIs, of course, the same Republican Party that four years ago clutched polls and affected vipers at the very idea of even holding confirmation hearings for Merrick. Garland who Barack Obama wished to put on the court in the last year of his presidency they going to do this about a week out from a presidential election. But this isn't what justifies the trump thing in the as far as the Republican establishment is concerned absolutely I mean I think the issue is if you look at this from a purely political perspective taking out the the hypocrisy argument if you will Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate have achieved. What they wanted to achieve and they have, they have given people who voted for Donald Trump essentially what they wanted I think you can divide those who voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen obviously into many different camps. But there were there were those who voted for trump himself. But then there were many who simply voted for a Republican with this in mind with the idea in minded, they would be able. Influence. The Supreme Court for decades to come remember as you said at the beginning Obama was denied I'm nominee that meant that there was a vacant spot open right when Donald trump was elected president, which was then filled and that in itself would have been a dramatic swing in the other direction. So we shouldn't forget that it was a very conservative Justice Antonin Scalia who had passed away or shortly before the two thousand sixteen. Election. So we have seen a dramatic shift in the court compared to what would have happened if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and so in that sense. Yes. From a purely political perspective, the Senate Mitch McConnell who is a traditional Republican was You could argue very much power political individual who was willing to stomach donald trump and some of his politics because he knew that this is what he would be able to achieve. At once amy conybeare. At ease confirmed, that will give the Supreme Court, a six three conservative majority. Now, that's not absolutely set in stone Supreme Court justices have been known to have minds of their own from time to time, but is it possible from distance to assess what difference that could make to American politics for as Chris quite rightly points out potentially decades ahead of us. Yes I think that that's absolutely not an overstatement to to to to say how significant this is. You know what they did. There would be an ideological. Conservative majority from this point on and. There's a couple of things I suppose one is. What it might mean in terms of what's coming before the court you know in the short to medium term I mean there are. Big issues coming down the road to do you know things on climate change on immigration and other major. Political stumbling blocks the one that's coming soon as I really am the one that's going to get the most attention for the moment is a vote on the for care act and that is coming before the courtroom, November and it's about rather than the the. Statute in its entirety is to be deemed unconstitutional or can can parts of it be on picked now? Komi Bats. Take on. This is going to be enormously important because if there is a possibility that's M obamacare in its entirety could be undermined and that's that's a fairly enormous moment. I think for the country not least when it's in the the grip ave, a public health crisis. Chris at the top of the show, we did play a quote by senator. McConnell which struck me as slightly all I don't know whether he misspoke or just found himself saying the quiet out loud. But he said a lot of what we've done over the last four years. We'll be undone sooner or later by the next election is that Mitch McConnell assuming or perhaps even hoping that trump gets beaten next Tuesday It wasn't interesting remark wasn't it? It's it's hard to say I think there might be a little bit of that in in his remarks you can read into it I do think more importantly though his comment related to what I was saying earlier I would argue that he is making this case almost a gloating case to say you can undo whenever you win whether it is in November as the polls suggest. Currently or not you can. You can undo much of what we did in the four years in electoral terms in legislative terms I should say, but you cannot undo what we've done on the court that will remain that will remain something that stays for a long period of time. The one thing I just wanted to say on that as well. I think it will be interesting with this conservative majority To really see how aggressively they go after that to to Mitch McConnell's point if you will things like the affordable care act they were passed by Congress if there is a Democratic president with Joe Joe Biden becoming president, they will have an opportunity to pass laws to to to change laws as well. Of course. So the question really will be to what extent this cord goes after laws declaring things. Versus giving Congress an opportunity to sort of legislate when it comes to things like healthcare as well. There were some interesting remarks I just add for Amy Coney Barrett on this in the past, he's talked about the idea of precedent the idea of who legislates when when you overturn precedent and she did have a little bit of a line to say she will own the overturn precedence. If there is still controversy in a certain issue. So if it is something that is divisive and it has not been decided if there is an overwhelming public support for something, she also believes that it's not the courts job to overturn it, and so that I think will be a key thing to watch going forward if we have say a democratic President Democratic majority but a conservative court. Claude if next Tuesday is a big win for the democratic. Party. As Senator Mitch McConnell appears to think it's going to be the not completely without options are there is the possibility as has been floated off expanding the Supreme Court but do you think a democratic administration would be willing to spend political capital doing that? Yes. It's interesting to see how the the the kind of the tightrope that Biden has been walking in his language on this topic and you know any mention of packing the court does. Bays alarm bells, I think in causes some concern people start talking about FDR on his efforts back in the day. I would say, maybe there might be an possibly needs to be a conversation about reforming court gets in its current. Is. Having become such a punishment killed body and it's certainly not what the framers set out to be, and the does probably you know some serious conversations that need to be had I suppose as one other point as well. Maybe just more. And immediately, is that the last male liberal on the court Stephen Prayer is the HVAC too. So. I. Mean He seems in relatively good shape put. It's quite likely that whoever is President the next four years, we'll have the opportunity to put. A new justice on the court. So that's just something to think about in terms of the balance clothes. Harrington Christian. Thank you both for joining

Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS

"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both

"Fly from NPR news. I'm Giles Snyder. Several Republican senators are lining up in support of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is plan to vote on the nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. NPR's Kelsey Snell reports. McConnell has not given a timeline for replacing Ginsberg, who died yesterday from complications of cancer majority leader McConnell hasn't said if he plans to hold a vote on an eventual nominee before the election in November. Much of the timing will depend on how quickly President Trump announces his pick. Supreme Court nominees undergo a lengthy process before an eventual vote on the Senate floor. Typically that involves one on one meetings with senators completing a lengthy questionnaire and extensive background checks all before public hearings and a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee. McConnell says Republicans were elected on a promise to fill federal court vacancies. Republicans have overseen a broad reshaping of the federal bench in recent years, approving more than 200 of President Trump's judicial nominees. Kelsey Snell.

US consumer spending sinks by record 13.6% in face of virus

"Aniela let me start with you and With the caveat that we're GONNA have Nancy Marshall Genzer here in a minute talking about personal income. I want to get your take as the trained economist in the room on the on the thirteen point something percent drop in consumer spending in the past month and I want you to frame it in terms of well. Consumers are basically this entire economy. Now what do we do right? The consumers are the engine of growth for the economy but the consumer has been staying at home. Many of us are under lockdown orders. That are just now starting to ease and so what we've seen. Is this phased in transition from a near lockdown of the national economy in April to a phase reopening That's happening in stages in so consumer spending is under the weight of that lockdown in terms of. Well there's nothing to spend our money on besides basic goods But also Some fear about re reengaging with the economy without social distancing protection and so the key to the recovery will be that consumers feel healthy both physically and financially to get back to spending at their normal levels. And we're GONNA talk about that a little bit with with Marshall Genzer Minute Gina As sort of along those same lines Fisher J. Paul did a thing today with Ellen blinder at Princeton Sort of a Q. And a. It was. It was a very nice little chat with those guys who've obviously known each other forever. But one of the things Alan blinder said. He's a professor of economics at Princeton. He said look. You guys are crossing some red lines in this crisis and Powell came back and said. Yeah you know what? I'm okay with that because this is different. I thought that was a remarkable thing for the guy running the American economy to say remarkable. You know basically said emergency unlike anything we've ever seen before if we didn't cross the red lines we'd have to explain ourselves to the American people and say why. Why didn't you do everything you possibly could do to save. The enemy was a remarkable statement. I think it's it's really interesting coming from pal too because he has historically been particularly concerned about crossing. Some of the red lines at the Fed has crossed one of them for example is fine municipal debt. You know. That's that's something Derek opt to start doing. It's something that he's been asked about four in asked he was always very quick to say. That's a lie. Don't Cross picking winners and losers This crisis Bonilla's so Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell said today just sort of on those along those lines of this being you know an unprecedented crisis senator. Mcconnell said today you know the next relief bill whenever it comes Is probably going to be the last one you buy that now. Not at all because we're still in the early transition of the of the economy. The second quarter is supposed to bear the brunt of the economic toll of covid nineteen remember. We've already seen a five percent decline and US GDP just on basis of two weeks of a shutdown in late March. So imagine what the second quarter is going to look like and you know. Much of the stimulus has come at a time when people can't spend because they're at stale they're staying at home so I expect that there will be more stimulus. We may see some some green shoots of recovery in the second half and it's likely that we will but that's going to be in the midst of an uptick in bankruptcy says firms struggle to make this transition and some longer term effects in terms of the forty million people who are now seeking or have Unemployment benefit so. There's a long red to recovery and I don't think we get it. We get out of a relief effort from the from the government that quickly so junior. You did a piece of honestly and I apologize. I don't remember if it was today or yesterday about the shape of this recovery in the line stuck with me is v stands for very unlikely which I kinda love. Let's riff on that. Green shoots thing What do you see out there that gives you hope if anything right so I think if there's one hopeful take away from that road it's that we're not in for an out so it's very unlikely the growth just fell off a cliff and it's just gonNa stay low forever and that's it because what we're seeing is that activity is picking up in an starting at certain improve as we kind of get used to living in this world at a one thing that's important to note? Is that activities picking up in places that have reopened not really markedly different way than it is in places that have reopened more fully at While to sign of green shoots. I think it's also reason to be modest in our expectations. What's going to happen? As we reopen doesn't seem like he blurts pouring back into their lives with unbounded doozy Azam. Here nearly you by that. And what green shoot do you like it if any well I? I think it's the preconditions that we were. In prior to the pandemic. It's important to remember. This is a a biologically triggered downturn that the economy wasn't broken Going into the outbreak in the pandemic and so there are several things that were already in place like a healthy banking system that can support some pretty intense and aggressive fed action through the banking system. That wasn't the case in during the financial crisis the banks were the problem. We've also seen consumers have relatively healthier balance-sheets than they did during the financial crisis in terms of them out of debt relative to their income. So some of those conditions will help with the economic toll. But right it's going to be. I think a slower road than a V. shape And it's going to be based on biological and medical advancements not just reopening alone

G. pointed out in his report that he found no evidence that those misrepresentations were intentional never the less they are unbelievably serious it's the biggest mistake you made the process that was in place essentially left so much responsibility on the lowest level of FBI agents and supervisors once those mistakes are baked in they become very very hard for the many many layers layers of oversight to uncover to you he said the biggest mistake I made was giving so much responsibility to the lowest level of F.

The Senate hopes to vote today on a two year budget agreement and then leave town for the August recess S. correspondent Linda Kenyon has the story Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell says it's a good deal. Do we have in front of us. As the product of extensive negotiations between President Trump's chain and the Democratic House Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats were eager to vote for it as early as yesterday. Democrats ready to pass it right now. If the majority leader underwood. Call it up for a vote at the majority leader did not call it up for a vote instead. Republicans met behind closed doors to discuss the bill among lingering doubts about whether they would be able able to win a majority of their fifty three senators senator McConnell still talked up the bill. Funding Agreement is the right deal for our national defense to ride deal because because it ensures the United States maintained. It's Wolfe's in credit to bill which only sixty five G._O._P. lawmakers supported in the house suspends the debt ceiling for two a years allowing the federal government to pay down its debt without default it also said spending caps for two years avoiding a government shutdown is September and pushes those pressing passing matters past the next election. McConnell says he hopes everyone in his caucus will support the bill so I believe that every one of our colleagues agreement to pass Republican Senator Rand rand. Paul isn't going to vote for it because it adds to the federal debt. It's the last gasp of a movement in America that was concerned with our national debt and Paul says this two year deal represents percents the height of irresponsibility raising the debt ceiling with no limits. It'd be like telling your kid okay you can have a credit card but there will be no limits on what are you spend Paul criticized both parties for creating this situation in the first place. We're approaching record deficits and neither party cares but senator. McConnell says Republicans begins are getting the best possible deal especially when it comes to rebuilding the military Republicans number one priority was investing in our national defense argument doesn't sit well a senator Paul It said were hollowed out. We can't complete our mission well. Maybe the mission is too big. It isn't that the budgets to small is that the missions too big and that he He says has created what he termed. Suspending Monstrosity Democrats do not care about the debt but here's the problem. The only opposition party we have in the country is the Republican looking party and they don't care either still senator. McConnell says go ahead and vote. It's our turn to do the job.

"What's she suggested after the tussle back and forth throughout the week of whether or not that would happen? So an interesting posture here by the president perhaps indicating he might be in a more of a deal making mindset. Going in. But you heard the president there Melissa continue to hammer away on the idea that the United States is he feels needs a wall on the southern border to keep out drugs and crime at not signaling any wiggle room on that front, listen. Yeah. And in the latest in terms of what the president has said Ayman is that Senator McConnell, senators, McConnell and Schumer, they're meeting as we speak. That's right. And so what the we got from the White House press off just before this comment from the president. I was a note from Sarah Sanders. It says that they won't agree on any CR continuing resolution that would keep the government up and running for a limited period of time unless it's got a substantial down payments on border wall funding. So the question is what is this substantial down payment? It looks like the White House is signaling that they're willing to back off the border wall itself in order to get a short term deal done to reopen the government at least if they can get what they're calling a down payment on the wall, and the the devils in the details on what down payment actually looks like in congressional terms. Or substantial to even thank you Ayman jabar's a live from the White House for us tonight. Are we any closer guy? Do you think when you read between the lines? No, I don't believe. So I mean, it's I find it interesting. Well, I find it interesting that the president thinks that grocery stores, we'll take us from people. I mean, you know, that might have happened in Mayberry back in the day. And that's not happening in my town. But I digress. So no, I don't think we're any closer. I think we are closer. I think Schumer meeting with McConnell is progress. I think it should be possible. For those to get a deal done. He seems to be a little bit more conciliatory on the amount for the wall. He asked me they everybody needs to save face. Right. He left a little bit of wiggle room. Are there substantial down payment he backed away? Right. Hodel some on the call. And that may be good mood is optimistic. I leave that a dumber than. But but the other point I would just say that I'd be very surprised if there's another paycheck that gets lapsed in. This government is still shut down in these workers not getting paid because I think it does damage to both sides. And I think it needs to be open. Yeah. I don't think we get close till the stock market goes back Tesla's is the stock market president. That's the only thing that motivates it a once bitten twice shy every single time. He comes out and says some conciliatory the very next day. We have some outrageous statements. I I I don't feel like we're any closer at checkout.

"Nine to nineteen ninety five. He's a democrat. But we are leading on his experiences negotiator today to talk about how to reach an agreement to end the government shutdown, and I should also note that of course, the Senator was the United States special envoy for Middle East peace from two thousand nine to two thousand eleven Senator Mitchell now, of course, I'm not suggesting at all that the situation in Northern Ireland is the same as what was happening in Washington and Northern Ireland. We had decades of terrible violence, you could even say centuries, right, depending on your perspective we had many parties as well. Several different governments in different different groups at at play. Okay. But, but I'm wondering are there specific things that you were you manage to do to reach the Good Friday agreement that might apply at all here over the current shut down. I mean, I was if I remember correctly, even I don't know. I don't want to call it a small thing. But the if I remember correctly, you you picked a date of Good Friday nineteen ninety eight for some kind of agreement to help you sensually gave all the parties a deadline, and they work to cause something like that work here. Well, circumstances are not the same in that respect. Remember that deadline was comb nation of several years of negotiation, and it was spiraling to failure. There was an uptick in violence tit-for-tat assassinations, the talks were collapsing. So it was actually a desperation move on my part. I don't think the same circumstance applies here. But the eight hundred thousand federal workers. Out of work and not getting paid. I think SUV as a not comparable, but a relevant deadline for the for the president and for the democratic leadership. This just keep going as it is when you get into this kind of squabble at this level. I think everyone loses I think the president is losing support. I think the democratic leader surprised losing support. And at some point members of the public say of pox on both your houses and don't look at the specific details that are being to go. She ate. So I think there's a pressure for them to move forward. You mentioned earlier in your discussion with the reporter from politico about Senator McConnell Giardi leader, he was dealt a serious negative. Bo a couple of weeks ago when he got the Senate to pass unanimously every single Senator supported legislation in the belief. He thought that the president would sign it. Well, then between the passage and the signing the president took some flack from members of the more conservative wing of his party. He changed his mind. And so Senate McConnell went into a defensive and really kind of silent mode for a couple of weeks. So I think this now gives him the opportunity to reassert himself to reinject himself into the process. I think you will present the president's Bill, but I think what he's doing. And it's it's happened. Historically, many times is he's not just going to present the presence Bill. He's going to add to it features that he think will make it difficult for Democrats to vote against it. No relief for hurricanes and other disasters. Pick out some in a state of a particular democrat who may be vulnerable and kind of dare him to vote against that. So I think he'll present a Bill loaded with other attractive items. To try to get this passed and it takes center stage. I don't think it's likely to pass, but it could serve as Senator Warner suggested the basis for further negotiation. No matter what anybody says they have to negotiate at some point. And they have to try to bring this to a close. Well, so Senator Mitchell there's no official mediator right at right now, but we do have advisors and and influential people surrounding la- leaders on on all sides of this issue..

Well, I've always thought that the debate over what the physical barriers should be constructed of was rather. Bizarre. We do need to strengthen our borders security. We know that ninety percent of the hair. Groen is coming across the southern border along with human traffickers and a lot of fun company. Children. That's not good either. But we need to look at more than just physical barrier. We need to look at more border patrol agents technology and other means as well, let me ask you this. The Senator journey at eleven AM on Friday. You're not here in town. You're not alone. The ball of congress is adjourned for the weekend reconvene until Tuesday. Where's the urgency? Well, check Justice Seiken tack to you from Bangor. Maine. I also been talking to my colleagues, I had it about you. I'm talking about in general, where's the urgency here in Washington, and congress it just seems sort of? Blase? Well, I certainly feel a sense of urgency to get people back to work and government reopened. And I think many of my colleagues sue, I think that we we need to make our first priority. Do you think Mitch McConnell has done enough? He made the decision is said this is between the Democrats and the president. And he said he's not going to bring up any bills that he doesn't think the president will sign is these field burned by the White House, or do you think he should be more aggressive here and put some of these bills back on the floor. Well, I can't speak for Senator McConnell, but I would like to see him bring the house pass bills to the Senate floor. We could reopen much of government where there's no dispute over issues involving certain departments like egg transportation housing interior. Let's get those reopened wealth negotiations continue, but to be fair to Senator McConnell. The fact is that unless Chuck Schumer and speaker Pelosi agree and the president agrees to sign a Bill we can pass fills, but they won't become laws so bad sway. I understand the point that Senator McConnell snaking about these important Koshi that are in fact on going. There are yourself Senator Gardner Senator Tillis of all spoken out basically sharing a similar position. Let's reopen the government and continue the debate. But they're the only you're the only three that have gone public on the Republican side of the aisle, privately how anxious or some of your colleagues. Well, there have been others. Lamar Alexander did an excellent column in which he outlined three possible compromises to get government open one you've talked about and we'd Vance slash cheer. When there was briefers shutdown, which was that we would have borders security funded at two point five billion dollars. And we would give a pet to citizenship for those dreamers. Those very young adults who are brought to this country through note decision of their own by their parents that suppository compromise on this issue and would note that forty six out of the forty nine Democrats in the Senate voted for that compromise. Just last March we ask you this. We're now in a third shutdown since President Trump took office. It seems like there's chaos when policy decisions get announced Syria. This is the most recent example, when is enough enough for you? You've expressed displeasure in the past..
