"About partisan agreement is possible, get more help out the door and then keep arguing over the rest later. The bill includes a $300 per week federal unemployment enhancement through the end of the year. Funding for the paycheck protection program and liability protections from Corona virus related lawsuits. It does not include a second round of stimulus checks or more money for state and local governments. It's a big problem, says Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy. It's not acceptable. It's also pure politics, says Senator Leahy meant to make it look like Republicans wanna pass the stimulus measure so they can have some political cover when they return to their home states to campaign for reelection appears all he wants is a sure vote. Woefully inadequate bill. He knows could never become law. Get out of here. He's referring to Senator McConnell, who admits there are some 20 members of his own caucus who won't support any Corona virus stimulus. While Republicans hold slightly more than a simple majority in the Senate, Democrats will be needed to plus up the tally to the required 60 votes it will take to cross a procedural hurdle when the Senate votes on Thursday. Democrats are not likely to jump on board and support what majority leader Mitch McConnell calls this skinny bill with this proposal isn't skinny. It's anemic. Senator Leahy is remarks were echoed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who called the skinny bill emaciated. Between now and Thursday, the Republican majority in the Senate will be counting votes trying to gauge whether there is enough support from the GOP caucus to pass the bill with help from Democrats, While Democrats are likely to hold out for a more comprehensive bill, they say, actually addresses the needs of the American people. Linda Canyon. Washington is the Rizzo effect appearing amid the coming presidential election at 21 till Jim Bohannon explains the former mayor of Philadelphia, Frank Rizzo was known as a candidate who was so controversial that he routinely polled about 5% lower than what he got on voting day. That is to say a number of Rizzo supporters were simply Afraid. They were too shy. If you will to tell pollsters even anonymously. They were going to vote for him. And I'm wondering if the same phenomenon may apply to Donald Trump. Who, of course, was something of a surprise winner in 2016, who has trailed in almost every poll. Now in 2020 Ryan Kason joins us the CEO of Beast Digital that is a Dallas based political consulting firm on line at their name. Beast digital dot com. Are there shy trump voters out there? Well, it certainly seems like it. We saw this in the 2016 race with a tight campaign. But the media largely never reported it that way. And what we saw it is that in 2016 Trump won because of 80,000 voters in just three states, but that whole time out of 130 national polls. Trump was only ahead in 13 of them. And I think most of those tend to be toward the end when they're there did appear to be a a tightening of the race. One factor, which is obviously played into this is the fact That people? Ah, these days in many cases are subject to violence, physical confrontations or or vandalism and the like. I will confess it over the weekend. I was at a hotel and I parked next to a car. That had a mag, a bumper sticker and I nobody was around, so I would didn't arouse any suspicion. I walked around the vehicle. I was surprised to see not a sign of any vandalism anywhere. It honestly surprised me that someone was expressing their political viewpoint and had not paid a price for it. Yeah, you've touched on a really, Ah ah strong sentiment there that a lot of people share. Ah, July Cato Institute report showed that 62% of all Americans say they have political views. That they are afraid to share because others might find them offensive. But what's really interesting is when you look at self identified conservatives and strong conservatives that number jumps to 77%. Weather really isn't a conservative cancel culture. Quite frankly. Ah, and again, it strikes me that it would be to the benefit liberals, Tio To back off from that crew and say That's not us. We're not making these threats because I don't think it does any good. Well, it's so interesting Straw self identified strong liberals in this state, same study, 60% of them said they have no problem saying things and they don't care if others agree or find them offensive that they're out there speaking up and speaking very loudly, and I think that 60% of strong liberals out there proudly sharing their opinions versus this large number of conservatives who are silent about the opinion speaks to a lot of the polarization we see in the media today. I think it could easily account for for a good deal of that. And again. It just strikes me that the Democrats who it seems to me trying to be all things to all people are trying to embrace everybody from AOC. On the left all the way back to the description of Joe Biden as this, this moderate Democrat. And there was a time in this country when you could say one thing to one audience and something else to another audience and get away with it in this day and age of social media, where you say one thing to anybody, and everybody hears about it. I'm not sure that you could do that any more. No voters have a platform to hold politicians and elected officials accountable. And so we see this with Joe Biden, right? He was co author of the Violent Crime Control Bill and now says that that was a big mistake. He was quick to say China is not a threat, and they're not our competitors, and now he's reversed and backtracked and said China is now in fact, the threat but the big E that I see and it's just plain as day. Is it in the primary when he was appealing to the liberal left? He was absolutely against fracking. And now in the general election, he says that that is not true. He was absolutely for fracking and always has been. So you know, this sort of used to be an art, too. The pivot going from the primary election to the general, But Joe Biden, I think dancing with two left feet on this one..

It's not a sweeping multi trillion dollar plan to rebuild the entire country in Republicans image, it does not even contain every single relief policy that Republicans ourselves think would help In the short term. I'm confident the Democrats would feel the same way, but the American people don't need us to keep arguing over what might be perfect. They need us to actually make a law. So Democratic leaders are perfectly free to come out here and keep up their playbook from these past months, just blast away, blast away and call names and complain about the infinite number of things. This proposal does not do. Maybe that'll bring back there, Goldilocks Ock and say Our multi $100 Million proposal is too small.

We're going to get the stone walling of Democratic leaders out from behind closed doors and put this to a vote out here on the floor, and it's gonna happen. Senators will not be voting on whether this targeted packages satisfies everyone of their legislative hope. That's not what we will do in this chamber. We vote on whether to make law. Whether to forge a compromise whether to do a lot of good for the country and keep arguing over the remaining differences later, a few a few weeks ago, Madam president more than 100 House Democrats spoke out publicly. They ask Speaker Pelosi to stop stonewalling and let the house vote on targeted Kobe relief short of short of her entire wish. Lose the speaker. Ignore them. Ignored her rank and file just like her piece mail. Postal bill ignored American families over here, I'll make sure our Democratic college get a chance to walk the walk. Every senator who has said they wanted bipartisan outcome for the country will have a chance to vote for everyone to see. Senators will vote this week and the American people We'll be watching. That was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from earlier today. Senate Democrats have already declared that the GOP bill is a nonstarter. Underscoring the difficulties in getting a deal that can pass Congress earned President Trump's signature and become law so close to Election Day talks between Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Treasure Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House chief of Staff Mark Meadows derailed last month and have made no visible progress since then.

That would mean people submitted absentee ballots but also voted in person. Red reference, Berger says.

A double voter knows exactly what they're doing, deluding the votes of each and every voter that followed that that follows the law.

N. minu chin so at this point does Mr minu chin speak for all Republicans given that he's dealing I guess fairly exclusively with Mrs Pelosi after the year you know we checked in with a lot of different folks on the hill talk to Senate Republicans and essentially he is the intermediary enough but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell he doesn't want to get get get ahead of the president you know get caught in supporting a deal with Mrs the he thought the president wouldn't support to a centrally manage in the kind of the intermediary he's working one on one with her and then he's picking you know that taking messages back to you you know Mitch McConnell and to the White House and kind of sorting things out that way so you know sending bellhop to originate in the house that kind of weather the prospect stark and that's why it's working out this way yeah he's he's kind of speaking for everyone it's a big wall for hands on and you know it's important to point out what's right in on this eventually all of this is to help avoid a government shutdown right before the holidays which is what we had last year about dot only be allowed to complicate and it turned into a longer shot down in you know in US history our thirty five days long they obviously all want to avoid that this time around at the heading into an election year will border wall related funding be part of these discussions hello yeah you betcha that seems to be a perennial issue no one can can really mean no one's really come together to have figured that out yet and continues to be a sore spot and so part of that is over your Democrats have had complained that the president has officially move money around some other things a construction project to help fund the wall they wanted to try to prevent him from doing that again they also don't know exactly how much money they will include for for border security construction because some of that is in the budget they just wanna win that it hasn't won a lot more so those are the kinds of things that they're still high going although I'm not a question what about you the shot down last year so I think everyone wants to avoid that again the hand around miss Kay Kay Davidson reporter at the Wall Street journal twenty minutes now after the hour on this morning Jennifer to shrink is here with more of America's first news including three big things you need to know order number one French economy.
Federal Government Spends and Collects Highest Amout Of Taxes And The Lure Of Socialism
"Welcome back this is the Ben Shapiro show cell got some bad news some bad news apparently corny Terence Jeffrey overt CNSNews dot com the amount of money the federal government collected in individual income taxes and the total amount of money the federal government spends both set records in fiscal year twenty nineteen how exciting member that time when we were supposedly told that the trump tax cuts will mean that we were bringing in as much money yeah well the last two years are the highest years on record in terms of federal tax receipts in the United States well collecting a record amount an individual income tax to the federal government still run a deficit of almost a trillion dollars during the fiscal year in fiscal two thousand nineteen which began on October first of twenty eighteen and ended September thirtieth of twenty nineteen the federal government collected one point seven trillion dollars in individual income taxes according to the monthly treasury statement that was up about five point five billion dollars from previous records that the treasury collected individual income taxes in fiscal two thousand eighteen in fiscal two thousand nineteen the federal government then proceeded to spend nearly four point five trillion dollars four point five trillion dollars which was up two hundred sixty one billion dollars from the previous record total that the government had spent in two thousand and nine twenty thousand nine that was the best of the financial crisis and problem just blew out the spending what you see is that that was sort of the new normal that was made into the new normal until sequestration in two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen then after sequestration of rose back up again and then it really really jumped in two thousand and nineteen so well individual income tax revenues set and all kind of time tax record in fiscal twenty nineteen total federal tax revenues did not during the year the treasury collected three point four trillion dollars in total taxes which about forty three billion dollars less than the record of three point five trillion dollars in total taxes at the treasury collected in fiscal year twenty fifteen that's because of corporate income taxes increasing from fiscal twenty eighteen to fiscal twenty nineteen or down from their fiscal two thousand seven peak that's because we lowered the corporate income tax rate bottom line is should the United States be able to survive on it you know like three trillion dollars of spending a year as opposed to four trillion dollars in spending a year yeah yeah but where is all this money coming from no we're constantly told that it's the defense department it's that department it's it's you know the actual function of the federal government that's not where all the money is being spent the DHS DHHS rather the power of health and Human Services and one point two trillion dollars social security spent one point one trillion dollars HHS and as I say we're the only to federal departments and spent more than one trillion dollars during fiscal year while that's being spent almost entirely on Medicare and obamacare and all the rest national defense amounts to approximately one eight of the federal total out white social security which is mandatory spending which can't be caught without an act of Congress social security represent by far the largest percentage of budget the national census slightly behind national defense is Medicare and then unspecified health which presumably would be Medicaid and then income securities that would be unemployed federal unemployment insurance presumably and then interest on the debt which represents four hundred billion dollars every single year so all of these things are massive massive amounts of out like where the taxes coming from they're coming from individual income tax and social security retirement here paying both of those things as a lot of money to spend which means that the Senate should do something about that right when when that be like a a worthwhile thanks well apparently not descended on Monday rejected never by senator rand Paul to place an across the board spending cut on domestic a funding packages being debated by lawmakers the senators voted twenty forty sixty seven on the amendment from Paul which reduce spending by two percent compared to fiscal twenty ninety levels to percent to percent it wasn't like I want a fifty percent reduction and that's not that's not what's going on here he's saying I want a two percent reduction in spending and center was like nope two thirds of the Senate two thirds like nope sorry can't do it senator Patrick Leahy said is a memorable slash spending below the bipartisan budget act that we all negotiated well you mean the budget act that nobody actually has an incentive to cut to here's the thing if you are in the Senate of the United States you ever have an incentive to cut a program always easier to spend so basically have two big spending parties the Democrats and the Republicans the Republicans want lower taxes the Democrats want higher taxes as pretty much the difference as the whole thing Republicans presumably wants to keep future spending from growing an exorbitant rate but even there it's hard to say that considering help Donald Trump has spent out the Wazoo the basic fact of life down from his many more money at this point the Brock about it that is a lot of money this is the latest attempt by rand Paul slash spending only be rebuffed by a majority of his Senate colleagues Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to wrap up the bill on Monday evening passing the weight but paving the way for the chamber to pass by the end of the week this would be the next to domestic spending package Democrats have pledged to block the bill without a larger deal on top line spending figures I wanna spend even more money endless amounts of money money that will never ever materialized we are already running a one trillion dollar a year deficit a year how is that going to be like we're sending four hundred billion dollars every year just to service the interest on the national debt where that person blew out the credit card and they didn't go to check out lending club I mean we are that person we have now blown out our credit cards and we're taking out a second credit card debt their credit card a fourth credit cards and they're a bunch of people on the left you subscribe political modern monetary theory which is basically we can spend until people tell us we can't spend which is true and there will come a point at which people tell us we cannot spend because they will stop buying our bonds because they don't think we're going to pay them off now all this last along as the US economy is robust there's one problem the US economy is only gonna remain about so long as regulations and taxes remain at least somewhat low end so long as the intellectual capital of the United States is not sap and so long as the demographics of the United States particularly in terms of age not in terms of of anything else on his race or ethnicity or anything in terms of age if those age demographics continue to move in the wrong direction we are so screwed because as we hit the baby boomers are retiring we have a massive do our demographic chart
