Senate rejects Sanders $15 minimum wage hike
"In Needham. Back to Washington for 46, where the effort to raise the minimum wage has had another roadblock. I came back up in the Senate today, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders hoping to get the provisions for that $15 minimum wage back into the cove it relief bill. In his words, Senator Sanders said It was absurd that the Senate parliamentarian told them it can't be done the richest country in the history of the world. We can no longer tolerate millions of our workers being unable to feed their families because they're working for starvation wages. However, the effort did not make it through just 42. Democrats siding with him. The effort inevitably falling short of the 60 votes that was needed to add that to the legislation now, several New England lawmakers actually voted no on this, including both Democratic senators from New Hampshire. That's strange. Shaheen and Maggie Hanson and Main
Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it
Biden Wants a $15 Minimum Wage
"President Biden has theirs is facing some reluctance among moderate and conservative Democrats to go along with a package that is very, very expensive. There's another side of this, which is that there's you know, there's a progressive element of the party that wants a lot and once it now and Senator Bernie Sanders is now chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. What impact will that have? I think it's it's having. It's already having an impact. But Bernie is and I talked to him about this for a story earlier this year, he is feeling very much like he wants to be aggressive with this budget reconciliation process, So he and the chairman of the House Budget Committee have have written a A budget reconciliation document that would allow for in the first cut additional $1.9 trillion in deficit spending, just like the president's calling for that's that's an aggressive use of reconciliation to drive up the budget. Deficit, But he also wants to push the boundaries of what might even fit under reconciliation. So he's he very much wants to try to get a minimum wage increase to $15 an hour federally into this recovery package like the president has proposed. That's not something that a lot of people who are well versed in You know, Senate procedure thought possible before this year, But Senator Sanders is really going to push that he's going to make a inarguable unt that if you increase the minimum wage people pay more taxes because they're earning more money and therefore you should consider that something that has to do with the budget and that can survive reconciliations. So his aggressiveness I think will be Actually, you know, Ironically, in important part of how ambitious the Biden agenda can be after losing Tonto, the less ambitious by an agenda in the Democratic primaries in the last presidential election. And just so we understand the term when we say a $15 federal minimum wage. That means that's that is the minimum wage across the land. Every cross lead worker is going to get $15 an hour at least. Yes, the idea right now it's $7.25. It hasn't been raised in a long time. And the proposal is that over the course of just a few years, it would rise to $15 an hour. And that would mean essentially, no one in the country could earn less than $15 an hour for you know whether you live in West Virginia or New York or wherever Do we know if the Republicans that President Biden is negotiating with are prepared to accept a $15 minimum weight? They are not. I think that there is almost no chance that you get Ah, single Republican on that size of a minimum wage increase. They very much cite concerns that it will reduce employment or hurt small business owners. Um, where's Democrats pushed the idea that will help workers and will help the economy overall by giving people more money to spend who are more likely to spend it. Um, but no, I think that If there were to be a compromise package with Republicans, this would be something that's dropped from it. And to be clear, we don't know for sure that 50 Democrats support A minimum wage of $15 an hour in the Senate. There's there's legislation that would do that. That's been introduced in the past, and it does not have 50 Democrats on it. So I think It's a real question if that could pass in the form that they're proposing it. Just to be clear. The $1.9 trillion plan here is Are there any revenue measures associated with it? Is this all going to be funded by borrowing? So at the moment, that's that's what it looks like. It's all gonna be funded by borrowing. Now a group of Democrats in the House and Senate actually would like to offset some of the borrowing by Rolling back some tax cuts temporary tax but cuts that passed in the stimulus legislation last year for corporations so that may be part of the ongoing unfolding debate this week. But in general, the way the Biden team has been looking at, it's too big early legislative packages on the economy. The they've been looking at it as we borrow money in order to save the economy now from its current dire situation, But they will at least partially and perhaps fully pay for the next big package. The infrastructure jobs, clean energy package by raising taxes on businesses in the rich. We need to

President-elect Joe Biden announces Boston Mayor Marty Walsh as nominee for labor secretary
"Biden today his final nominees rounding out his cabinet, including for the secretaries of labor and commerce for Labor secretary. It's Marty Walsh, who is currently the mayor of Boston. Today. We're at a crossroads in America. It's a time of great hardship. Working people holding the country together. Right now, I've seen it up close as mayor of the city that I love Boston Healthcare workers, first responders, grocery store workers, delivery drivers, postal workers, sanitation workers, custodians coming through for us under impossible conditions. But this is this isn't just because the cove it Crisis or the economic crisis that threatens their well being working. People have been struggling for a long time, under the erosion of their rights and the deep inequalities of race, gender and class. For the last four years, they've been under assault. Attacks on their rights, their livelihood and the unions that built the middle class. We have facing hard times, but nobody's tougher than the American worker, and now now we have the opportunity to put power back in the hands of working people all across this country, and that is a good thing for our economy and for our country. We can defend workers rights. We can strengthen collective bargaining, We can grow union members. Ship. We can create millions of good paying jobs with investments in infrastructure, clean energy and in high tech manufacturing, along with the workforce training to help get those people into those good jobs. Labor secretary nominee Marty Walsh president like Joe Biden said he considered nominating Senator Bernie Sanders, a former rival for the presidency. For labor secretary but that both of them agreed that with US Senate now and Democratic controlled by such a slim margin, it would be risky to have Senator Sanders leave and give the governor of Sanders home state Vermont, whose Republican the opportunity to appoint a replacement
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.
$916 billion White House coronavirus relief proposal
"Really wanna fill you guys in on Corona virus aid before we do our interview with senator sanders. So let's get right to it. There's a new and critical update to the corona virus negotiations that are taking place between congressional lawmakers and the white house now. Yesterday it was reported that the white house was urgently asking. Gop senators to approve one time. Six hundred dollar direct checks to americans as part of the coronavirus relief bill and at that time it really did seem as though The trump administration was outflanking democrats in congress from the left But now it's abundantly clear that that's not actually what's going on. It turns out that the one time six hundred dollar check that would be sent to americans would be a trade-off or essentially getting rid of the federal unemployment aid of three hundred dollars per week. Okay that tradeoff off seems pretty ridiculous. And so nancy pelosi talked about it. A little bit today She certainly clap back but she did. Treasury secretary steve mnuchin released a statement. Are you in this speaker. Pelosi spoke today at five pm and on behalf of the president. I presented a nine hundred sixteen billion dollar proposal. This proposal includes money for state and local governments and robust liability protections for businesses schools and universities. Now pelosi wasn't buying it mostly because she had some insight that most others didn't have and she says while it is progress that leader mcconnell has signed off on a nine hundred sixteen billion dollar offer based on the bipartisan framework The president's proposal which cuts unemployment insurance by one hundred forty billion dollars compared to the framework is unacceptable. So she says it's a nonstarter. I absolutely agree with her. On that. and there are all sorts of issues in regard to the liability protections That are offered by republicans. But before i get to that and katie porter shredding republicans for it john. Why don't you jump in. yeah. I find it very difficult to comment on this because the contents of the package change so often. I mean just yesterday mitch. Mcconnell was saying that it wasn't a prerequisite at the liability protections. It'd be in there but now it is again. I i don't or maybe it is. I don't know. I honestly don't know we don't know what is in the bill until after it's passed and usually not even then usually we're not sure even at that point especially You know the amount of money that we're talking about but it is like it's it's again. It's perfect that they've come up with a financial trade off the onetime payments versus basically cutting off the unemployment aid that makes sense to people on insurance that planned to die in the next week and a half it makes financial sense to them or people who are yet on Unemployment insurance and Having wised up to the fact that the federal government is still effectively doing nothing to stop the spread of the virus. And so it's gonna get worse and more businesses are going to get shut down and so a lot of people that are currently unemployed are probably gonna end up unemployed by the end of this dark winter And this is as we'll probably talking about what senator sanders. This is shaping up to be the last thing that they'll do like we've waited almost a year and this. I am trying to search for word that allowed to us on this now. Right now Is the last thing that they're going to do. Insult to injury in every possible way. It's yeah it's just it's so so shameful especially when you put it in the context of how easily the funding for Defense for the pentagon is gonna pass probably with a veto proof. Vote in both the house which already happened and the senate which is likely to happen in the future. That's seven hundred forty billion dollars every year. The number goes up for the most part. And there's no debate about it. It's just going to happen. But i do want also talk a little bit about the liability protection or lybia liability shield which Mitch mcconnell seems to only care about like that's the only thing that he's been pretty insistent on It seemed like maybe he can bend to democrats will on it If there were some pretty significant trade offs But katie porter Did a great job in explaining why this is a horrendous. A provision in the stimulus bill she says you may have heard that democrats and republicans have agreed upon spending nine hundred billion dollars to fund yet another round of small business loans support hospitals in essential workers and helped the ten million people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own everyone at the negotiating table including senate. Republicans have agreed to a compromise except one mitch. Mcconnell is refusing to bring it to the floor unless it wipes away all cove related lawsuits filed that allege injury or death due to corporate negligence. And she goes on to say that. These lawsuits represent the worst of the worst examples of disregard for human life cases filed on behalf of nursing home patients and grocery store workers who died because the company in charge of keeping them safe prioritize cutting costs over protecting them. And i think one of the best examples to share with you guys is what is happening now with a tyson. Meat packing plant Where You know tyson facing a wrongful death lawsuit because dozens of their workers got sick and died due to their negligence. Cnn has more details on that. Let's watch according to the allegations. The plant manager of the waterloo facility organized a cash volume winner. Take all betting pool for supervisors and managers to wager. How many employees would test positive for covid. Nineteen in the end more than a thousand employees would catch the virus about a third of the nearly three thousand working at the plant on stare. Ernest ladders spoke to c. n. N.'s gary tuchman in april about his conversation with tyson's hr department. They told me I was i was i was i was safe. And they told me that Everything was okay and they told me. I have a better chance. A catching the corona virus. Going out to walmart and enticing. Come the work. you safe. The tyson employers also allegedly told their employees to ignore any symptoms. They might be suffering from contracting corona virus into just keep working. it's doesn't insane yeah no the. The era of self-regulation of plants like tyson one needs to change. Which is a whites. Good that the department of agriculture is gonna be controlled by tom. Bill sack who while he was governor by said that they should self-regulate
Symone Sanders has something to say and now she'll speak for Kamala Harris
"I'm jonathan kaye. Part opinion writer for the washington post in host of the cape up podcast at the washington post and it is my pleasure to welcome you to the ninety second street. Wise virtual event simone sanders in conversation about her book. No you shut up. Speaking truth to power and reclaiming america's simone sanders. Welcome to the ninety second street. Y thank you jonathan. I'm glad to be here you know. I thought i'd do this little couch situation today. Because every time at the ninety second street y i just feel like it is a comfy like sanding where we really settle in have good meaty conversations of. I tried to create that environment here today. All right well. Let's let's have that that meeting conversation. This book was fun. Your book was fun in it. It went in in ways that i did not expect. It is memoir. It is at its advice for for young people. It's a it's a blueprint and we're gonna get into that in a moment. But i just have to jump in right away right now. You are senior adviser to the democratic presidential nominee. Joe biden last election cycle. You're the national press secretary for senator bernie sanders in two thousand sixteen for all for myself and everyone who's watching. How did that happen. And i want to start with bernie sanders. Why him in two thousand sixteen. Don't look i. I wanna say i am just again very grateful to be here and i love this. The question you started with because i know this is the question everybody really wants to answer. How did this happen. Why will tell you that. And i went to go work for senator sanders in twenty fifteen and i went to work for him because the conversations that he was having out on the campaign trail where the conversations that frankly i was having with my friends i i wanted to be able to contribute to what senator sanders was saying and knowing everything that i know right now given everything that i've experienced I would make the decision to go back and do it all over again in two thousand fifteen i would. If i go back into time i would go back and still make the same decision. I'm proud of the work. We did when i made the decision that i wanted to go back out on the campaign trail this cycle because i you know i was enjoying my time as a political commentator. I used to go to branch. I used to go on vacation now. None of those things are happening. Some of that is due to cope. Nineteen and the current president of the united states. Mismanagement of that situation which i'm sure we will have opportunity to touch on later. I'll but some of it is because on the campaign trail. There is no brunch okay. There are no vacations. There is a work for a finite amount of time and the clock is ticking as we are having this conversation we are yet a couple couple of weeks a number of weeks just a couple of minutes away from election day and when i made the conversation the decision to go back on the campaign trail i really i talked to lots of different folks as you all may remember their upwards of more than twenty people running to be the democratic nominee. And when i had the to sit down with vice president biden and his wife dr jill biden joe biden. Said to me something. Y'all have heard him say a number of different times. He told me he was running for president because he thought that what he was saying from trump wasn't abuse of power and he could not sit back and watch an abuse of power go unchecked that he didn't want to look back on this election cycle unthank- what if i would have ran for president and that was similar to something i had experienced. I didn't wanna look back on this cycle and thing. What if. I didn't jump in and i told him i said me too sir and i'm live but i want to work for somebody. I don't wanna be the president. And then joe biden told me that he felt we were in a battle for the soul of the nation and that he was running and he will be talking about rebuilding the backbone of the country and uniting america and that struck me because i felt like in that moment that joe biden correctly diagnosed. What america was actually experienced. I

Business in the past looks at the nuance issues and takes each thing at a time versus having a blanket approach as you know, the wealthiest bad or big businesses bad. We've seen president trump and his campaign try to paint Senator Harris as a radical left wing Pick Wall Street doesn't seem to see it that way. Definitely not a lot of what I. Heard from folks on the phone text messages emails. But that she's moderate, she sent her even though people don't like using those words that much anymore and that's similar to how they think about Biden and a lot of the reasons why think financial leaders are happy and pleased and cheering on this Harris pick is that she does represent a move away from. The. Far Left Progressive Part of the Democratic Party the part that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Are In and so they're relieved that you know things like more financial regulation or really taking back see right now it's all about economic recovery and harassed and Biden have said they think big business is good if the economy recovers and business recovers, that's good for. Everybody. You know it's interesting because after Biden made his announcement yesterday, we heard Praise from people like Senator Warren and Senator Sanders. We know Senator Harris has pledged to be tough on big banks as California Attorney General. She pushed for a big settlement with banks for their role in the foreclosure crisis. What about her record makes Wall Street thinks she's a moderate. It's a great question look like you said, she's touted her tough on banks record. But when you actually break it down, what folks in the financial community are saying is that she's made no secret that there's wrongdoing she will prosecute her background as a prosecutor, but it's also important to keep in mind that her big bank settlement was very nuanced and she did claim a lot of credit for it got brought a lot to. The State of California but we had reported earlier last year that she wasn't always really doing as much of the substance of the negotiations and she was doing a lot that solidified. The Big Bank settlement is helping her record as a politician. So when I spoke with bankers and financial executives last night and today they were saying look she's GonNa take swings at us. We get that it's politics. We're not gonNA take it personally. When there's wrongdoing you know she says she's going to prosecute. We got that but she's not going to have a blanket approach as all banks are bad or all wealthy people are bad. What were some of her other policies on the campaign trail and what do they tell us about her stance toward the financial industry. Healthcare was a really big wine and let's not forget healthcare with the most important issue on the campaign trail. Now, in coronavirus times, it's shifted more to economic recovery. But Harris struggled with this event she failed to really clearly state what her plan was initially, and then once she did she basically said she would have a government run health care plan that would still allow for private insurers an even mentioned that she proposed taxing financial transactions to pay for that. Health care overhaul. So that's something that certainly is out there would really impact the financial sector. Another one that was really big was her so called three. I'm agenda in the beginning of the primary when she was on the trail, she often would attack president trump a lot but she changed strategies partway through an efforts to really appeal more to the every man, every woman and the middle class and mentioned things like gender pay equality breezing teacher salaries and things. Like that that she hoped would get her more voters. She's also being welcomed warmly from the tech world. What can you tell us about that? You know, let's not forget that Kamla Harris has been a politician California in the bay area for a while she was district attorney. She was Attorney General She's been California senator since two thousand sixteen she knows tech executives in Silicon Valley and his raise money from them for her races for a number of years she. Also, lives part time in southern. California with her husband Doug Hav who is an corporate entertainment lawyer. So she's got these deep ties to the media telecom tech and entertainment world folks that have fundraise for her for years. They know her they think she's tough but fair and are very excited and already planning fundraisers now that she's the VP pick, she's also shown that she can raise big bucks from Wall Street donors. How might that help the Biden campaign overall? I think it will help double down on a lot of the money that they need. I saw an invite for recent fundraiser that has the high amount at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. This is big money we're talking about a lot of the Biden fundraisers in recent weeks have raised millions while Harris and Biden do overlap on a lot of donors whether from the financial tech media entertainment world, a lot of them have known. Harris. For a really long time supported her during the primary and may be willing to give even more money than they already have to the Biden campaign now that she's on the ticket.

Sen. Bernie Sanders calls for tax on billionaires' gains during the pandemic
"A major milestone for the Nasdaq on Thursday the index briefly crossed eleven thousand for the first time ever the Nasdaq them closed out the day a hair below that eleven km milestone, a record high that's the indexes six record close in. So. Far, the Nasdaq is clocked a record close thirty one times in twenty twenty. It's remarkable run for the and exit especially considering what a hit like the rest of the stock packet back in. March. Clearly, the Nasdaq is come back with ferocity it's gained about twenty three percents alone the S. and P. Five hundred and the Dow Jones indices have each clocked day winning streak and the S&P is now near percentage points away from his own twenty twenty. Of course, record highs in the marketplace seem at odds with the troubles were seeing a real economy small and medium businesses are shuttered big retailers bankrupt individuals and entrepreneurs are anxiously awaiting more government relief according to some as you'll hear, the disconnect is in part due to the Federal Reserve's unprecedented actions throughout the pandemic. And investor competent that the Fed will continue to support the markets. One former presidential candidate is calling for billionaires to step up to the real economy. Here's duckie quick Senator Bernie Sanders he is now. Calling for a crackdown on billionaires, this is what he tweeted last night. I will be introducing legislation tomorrow meaning today to tax the obscene wealth gains billionaires have made during the public health crisis. The senator tweeted a thread explaining his proposal saying while over thirty million. Americans. Have seen their six hundred dollars a week and unemployment benefits. Expire emergency actions taken by the Federal Reserve to prop up the stock market have meant that four hundred, sixty, seven billionaires saw their wealth go up by over seven hundred and thirty billion dollars since the pandemic began while Amazon is denying paid sick leave hazard pay personal protective equipment to four, hundred, fifty, thousand of its Workers Jeff Bezos has increased his wealth by over seventy billion dollars. Amazon shares are up more than seventy percent year to date. You can see this morning down by about twelve dollars. Senator Sanders also calls out Walmart's Walton family. Tesla's Elon Musk and facebook's mark Zuckerberg for making billions of dollars during the pandemic, and then trying to juxtapose that with what they've done for some of the workers along the way he then said by taxing sixty percent of the wealth gains made by just four, hundred, sixty, seven billionaires. During this pandemic, we could guarantee has a right for an entire year and billionaires would still be able to pocket over three hundred, ten billion dollars gains during the worst downturn since the Great Depression.
Senate Hearing Recap: Reopening Amid The Coronavirus
"Tonight. A dire warning from Dr Anthony FAUCI reopening the country too soon during the corona virus crisis will cost lives. There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak that you might not be able to control which in fact have reduc sickly will set you back not only leading to some suffering and death. It could be avoided. Could even set you back on the road to TRY TO GET ECONOMIC RECOVERY. A reality check from the nation's top infectious disease expert which stands in stark contrast to president. Trump's push to reopen the country. Tuesday Senate hearing unlike any before with the witnesses and many senators appearing remotely by conference an all-too-familiar precaution in the pandemic four of the nation's top health officials responsible for the Federal Response Dr Fallacy. Cdc Director Robert Redfield FDA Commissioner Steven Hahn and Admiral Brett Jarar offering their unfiltered assessments among the takeaways. Dr Faucher cautioning. It's a bridge too far to expect Corona virus treatments or a vaccine in time for the fall school semester the head of CDC could not say when the agency will finally released detailed advice to states. About how and when to reopen public places like schools churches and restaurants. When is it going to be released? Because states are reopening right now and we need this additional guidance to make those decisions. I do anticipate this broader guidance. Oh It'd be posted on the CDC website. Soon I soon isn't terribly helpful. And Dr Ci says the already staggering corona virus. Death toll is likely higher than what's reported the official statistic. Dr Faucher is that eighty thousand Americans have died from the pandemic. There are some epidemiologist who suggests the number may be fifty percent higher than that of what do you think. I'm not sure Senator Sanders if it's going to be fifty percent higher but most of us feel that the number of deaths are likely higher than that number. There may have been people who died at home. Who did have who are not counted as Kobe because they never really got to? The hospital. Tuesday's hearing grew tense at times with Republican. Senator Rand Paul clashing with Dr Jason. We can listen to your advice but there are people on the other side. Tangiers not going to be a surge and then we can safely open the economy and I have never made myself out to be the end all and only voice of this. I'm a scientist. A physician at a public health official. I give advice. According the best scientific evidence as Democrat seized on shortcomings in the trump administration's response resident trump must acknowledge that the several responses in sufficient and that more people are dying as a result but there was one point of bipartisan agreement. One thing that's abundantly clear. We need dramatically more testing. Would our country had done so far. Intesting is impressive but not nearly enough. I find are testing record. Nothing to celebrate whatsoever now. The White House has made progress in expanding the country's testing capabilities in recent weeks though public health experts warned that millions more tests per week are needed to safely reopen. The Country Lester. Alright Jeff Bennett to the White House. Thank you and one of the most striking moments from Dr found today was during an exchange about kids and the risk of corona virus it comes as NBC News has learned the CDC is preparing to issue an alert to doctors nationwide about the signs and symptoms of that mystery. Illness believed linked to Cova. Nineteen with more. Here's Kristen Dahlgren. Today in Washington a tense exchange over kids and covert and what it means schools. Consider reopening much as I respect you doctor Pal. I don't think you're the end hall. I don't think you're the one person I guess to make a decision whether it's a huge mistake if we don't open the schools in the fall. I think we'd better be careful if we are not cavalier in thinking that children are completely uneven the deleterious effects but I am very careful and hopefully humble and knowing that I don't know everything about this disease the nation's top infectious disease doc pointing to the new inflammatory disease that appears to be impacting small but growing number of children today spokesperson for the CDC saying it's preparing a nationwide alert to help track pediatric multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome. Symptoms can include prolonged fever rash abdominal pain and the inflammation can attack organs like the heart or kidneys. At least three children died in cases now suspected in at least fourteen states New York now has one hundred cases it's probably in other states And probably hasn't been diagnosed yet in other states because again these children don't present the usual Kovic symptoms. Doctors say the syndrome appears to be a delayed inflammatory response to the virus. It's severe. It is the very rapidly in these children so they can go from having fevers to suddenly deteriorating over a short period of time fortunately their treatment that seemed to be working along today. Josie past fan went home after days in the. Icu recused just to recognize the symptoms. Get your child there so that they can get the treatment and new evidence today. Even kids without the inflammatory syndrome can get sicker with Cova. Nineteen than I thought. A new study from children's national found of one hundred seventy seven kids who tested positive one in four required hospitalization. Nearly forty percent of those had no underlying condition overall children are a fraction of those most seriously impacted by Cova but tonight growing evidence against the Assumption. They are completely safe.
New Sanders/Jayapal bill: the Healthcare Emergency Guarantee Act
"The the next biggest thing obviously in healthcare is going to be this phase. Four relief bill which they're calling the cares to act which is likely to start moving through congress in the next week or two and the big question for us at least is. Is there going to be any healthcare relief for the millions and millions of people who are losing their jobs and losing their health insurance coverage right in the middle of massive healthcare crisis and there are now three bills that Democrats have different? Democrats have proposed in the house side And there's one on the Senate side It's not entirely clear whether anything will go through the Senate at all democratic leadership on the Senate side has not really made much noise about this But let's let's go back to the we've already talked about two of the house bills. We talked about A bill that Senator Sanders and reptile Paul are going to introduced. Actually not yet filed. This is called the Healthcare Emergency Guarantee Act. But what it really is it would cover everyone with Medicare It would have no co no deductibles and even if you have private or public insurance already than this bill would Medicare would cover all of your co pays and deductibles so basically it would achieve all of the access goals of a Medicare for all system. It would just temporarily believing in the private insurers and kind of providing wraparound and then but it is the like it is the Medicare Gateway Bill. Oh no doubt no doubt. Yeah I think so. We're going to be getting behind this bill. Most of the Medicare for movement is going to be supporting this bill. I think our feeling is that you know if you can get the experience of Medicare for all even if you don't get all the financing and limiting the health insurance company that it'll create real momentum to just do the full thing and because really leaving the health insurance companies in there. It just makes it much more expensive to do. It's hard to afford universal health. Care if you don't kick them out And you have to deal with them continuing to deny coverage and using the system just for their own profits so the other two bills. We already talked about this shitty bill that a democratic leadership is pushing the well the Worker Health Coverage Protection Act And this would obviously be good for some folks it expand. It basically subsidizes Cobra. So this is if you happen to have good health insurance in the job that you left. Then it would subsidize you staying on your previous employer's plan but a lot of people would not qualify for that Especially you know if you work at a small business. This is only Kober only works if you were working at a place that has twenty or more employees and it only works if your health. Your previous employer still exists and if their their health plan still exists. It doesn't work if your previous employer just went under or if they closed down their healthcare plan and obviously for many people who didn't have health care coverage previously. It would do nothing so just to give some numbers to illustrate the differences between these two bills the giant Paul Sanders Bill. The Healthcare Emergency Guarantee. Act THAT BILL WOULD COVER EVERYBODY. Who's currently uninsured? And that number is between thirty and forty million and rising as people are kicked off their their jobs and then kicked off their health insurance and then of course it would also because it would provide that wrap around coverage Basically it would basically affect everybody in the United States hundred plus million three hundred million whereas the Cobra Bell the Cobra for some ish. Bill that Nancy Pelosi is pushing would cover at most four to five million people so the scope is really different. Yeah I hadn't even seen that projection but that is shockingly inadequate for sort of what's facing us and we now have a third bill if you weren't confused already this is This is a bill introduced this past week by Reps. Chhaya Paul and Reps Kennedy who are both Medicare for all supporters in called the Medicare Crisis Program Act? We we might need to rename all these bills down and their bill would Instead of I mean the other thing about the bill is that it's just throwing public tax dollars at private health insurance companies but this plan that Kennedy introducing would expand Medicare extend Medicare to the recently unemployed so basically people who have become unemployed due to You know in the period of Corona virus would be allow- allowed to enroll in the Medicare program But the thing that makes this it's not nearly as good as the sanders giant. Paul Bill Because it leaves all of almost all of the cost sharing and copays and deductibles Under Medicare would still be there They did eliminate some like the premiums that you have to pay but you'd still have A part A. Part B. deductibles. You'd still have to buy a drug plan if you want to have any drug coverage you'd have the donut hole all that all those limitations that Medicare unfortunately comes with And then if you did not become recently unemployed then you also wouldn't qualify for the program So in my opinion it's it's better than the Cobra Bill. it would cover more people But it's still. I think totally inadequate for what's needed in this crisis and it makes kind of arbitrary distinctions about who gets in and who doesn't so I don't know our current system Yeah but yeah it would be better. It's like a gateway light right so we have like the the sanders dry. Paul Act which is like improved Medicare for all ish improved Medicare for all gateway drug. We have this the Reps Scott. Dingle Pelosi Bill which is like Cobra for some ish like you should have been a Republican bill right. They may be actually and I mean this. This is what I thought. The Republicans were going to push would be like. Let's subsidize private insurance but it turns out. There's been some like trading places going on over the decades so and then we have this new job. Kennedy Bill Medicare for the recently unemployed. So now we've got these three bills but none of it is really important. The distinctions between the bills. If nobody's actually going to fight for any of these bills and Pelosi for example they introduce this bill but she hasn't really been talking that much about it. I'm not sure if there's been a lot of discussion about whether it's actually going to be in the next phase of relief and and I think that there's a reason that the Democrats haven't really tackled the UN insurance problem. Which is there's no good solution for them. I mean insurers want them to expand Cobra which would be massively expensive and then as we were talking about cover only a fraction of the newly insured newly uninsured. The other option is of course you either expand private or public insurance and so the other option is to temporarily expand public insurance which would cover more people and of course be far less expensive but would also piss off the industry. Not only because they aren't going to be receiving those subsidies Cobra but because it would just be difficult to claw back you know expansion of public insurance and it would also demonstrate a way for us to transition away from employer based insurance so democratic leaders are just Kinda stuck between these two forces I think and I think that maybe they're just hoping that all these people who had insurance these are the ones they sort of have to worry about the the people that they think make up their base they. They hope that maybe they'll get their jobs back soon. And then they won't have to deal with this whole problem.

"To be we would visit with Mike Emanuel fox news chief congressional correspondent on five thirty five central time today he's graciously joining us just after six o'clock for a conversation covered as much as we can cover the four he's got to get back to work for the mother ship my good afternoon how are you Hey sorry I'm late brother you I'm just glad that you're joining us honestly well first Mitch McConnell told his Republican caucus to hold their nose and vote for it give us the inside scoop on some of the numbers yes so this was the package that the house had passed you know in the middle of the night Friday night into Saturday morning before leaving town for recess and so you know there are some Republicans who wanted to make some tweaks you know this was negotiated between the house democratic leadership and Steve Mnuchin and so basically you know it's providing some paid leave for people who get sick extending some unemployment insurance making sure the tasks that people get to see if they have this corona virus are free and so that sort of thing so this was not the the big package with the big packages what Mitch McConnell's working out right now with the White House that would you know potentially send checks to individual people affected by corona virus is soon as early April and perhaps another round of checks in early may one of the mechanics that seem they don't seem feasible to me getting checks actual checks in the hands of Americans understand tax credits such as accounting but I mean actual checks that they're they're hanging on to that yeah well and and and look there are a lot of folks who say you know there are a lot of people who don't need him in either a lot of folks like you and I who are thankfully are still healthy and working and so we have been financially impacted but you know if you work in the restaurant industry or a bar you know you may be losing precious tips precious hourly wages and so you know can they figure out a way to really target those folks so that some of the sausage making that's going on right now on Capitol Hill trying to figure out how best to target this because you know a one point three trillion dollar stimulus package you know you would hope that it would be is targeted to those who are really suffering and not to those who are are still doing okay despite the inconvenience well I don't know how do that every person in America and that short time frame to get the money now senator Holly I think a Republican of Missouri you know talk about making sausages he is you're kind of a warning as as you're trying to put these bills together saying any multinational companies looking for Congress to bail them out you better make sure you bring jobs back to the United States that seems like a potential deal killer right there yeah and and so there's that there's a fair amount of that going on you had been sass in the last twenty four hours saying Hey you know rather than Washington doling out money why not give it to the governors to figure out how best to target relief to those who've been hardest hit and so there are all kinds of ideas flying around here bottom line McConnell's feeling pressure you know obviously they are watching the market everyday nose diving and so I think there's a sense here on Capitol Hill that they really can't wait around till next week and so I think there's a feeling that they really need to do more before the Senate leaves town and so that may build pressure towards perhaps a Friday vote or weekend activity we'll see but you know because I was here talking about serious money but but there's also a feeling that the economy desperately needs to hurry and and that these people who've been you know put out of work through no fault of their own use them some positive news some light at the end of the tunnel talking or Michael Mandel chief congressional correspondent for fox news couple of political questions quickly if I can the president peers beginning as of fourteen on these daily briefings he's assembled a team they all seem to be in sync it seems you working out very well there's little daylight between him and secretary Mnuchin today but I think that was just more semantics than anything else right how happy other Republicans both house and Senate Republican staffers the the looming out if you will the Washington establishment Republicans with the president's seeming to turn the corner not be nearly as confrontational yet I gotta go with the Cuomo that seems to be completely smoothed over our governor Pritzker and the and the president got into it a bit I think more from Pritzker's angle in the present obvious but they seem now to a tamp that down and Natalie I mentioned Republicans are happy with the president right now but also Mike pence has really risen to the occasion as a guy that was just on the sidelines of kind of a Nancy Reagan stare for the last three years he seems to really be taking charge is that the feeling with the Republicans on Capitol Hill it is I've heard great feedback from a lot of Republicans on the hill feeling like you know the president has put aside you know some of the bickering that he can get into with people the other party you know Sweden things over worked with governor Cuomo I think recognizing that as the president in office when you have this type of crisis this is what you get graded on and so I think they feel like he over the last you know several days after you know perhaps downplaying the significance with significant of it early on has now really grasped you know that this is his time this is a crisis and this is his time to lead I think they're probably some Republicans on the hill who wish he didn't emphasize crime virus as the quote Chinese virus as you did today but you know what you gonna do I mean they they they have been frustrated with the tweeting a lot of them over the past few years they realize he's not going to change and so I'm not everything's going to change but I think they they like the bipartisan spirit and some lawmakers I've talked to say they have not seen this type of bipartisan spirit on the hill since nine eleven which is saying a lot obviously the darkest chapter in in recent history on the other side in light of in light of Illinois especially Florida and Arizona last night the Democrats must be completely done the burn his extinguish correct yeah I think it's a it's not a matter of if but when and you know there was a report going around today saying it was today I think some of those that's a no no we're not talking about that were ruined reevaluating your natural source was on that whatever the DNC chair or some other member of the DNC establishment basically saying Hey senator Sanders good campaign time to go but bottom line yeah I mean I think it's you know he's done and I don't know if he's going to negotiate for something he'd really like with Joe Biden before he goes away and tries to bring his movement over to the Biden campaign but yeah I think there's a there's definitely a feeling among Democrats that they want him to go sooner than later especially since you know it's basically impossible to campaign right now there are no rallies yet last night you had Joe Biden Wilmington Delaware staring into the camera dressing any supporters who might have logged on but it's a totally new way of presidential campaigning and you know they're watching the president obviously able to you know live the role day after day and I'm in a crisis and as long as people think he's responding effectively and professionally to it a lot of folks think that you know he may get the the benefit of that the tide going to the incumbent as we go into the fall but obviously we still have a long way to go we'll see now one more brightness painted himself into a gender corner obviously considering his age and some more than likely they would consider this move I'm talking about senator Warren senator Duckworth senator Baldwin senator culture who do you put the smart money on my my dad has been for for months that it would probably be Dennis Harris yeah but you know I think what we charge did him a solid by you know springing into action by jumping out of the campaign right before super Tuesday and then coming to Dallas where I was on assignment and and doing a rally with him and so he might feel some loyalty to her I think you know the thing about Warren is then you have two people in their seventies and to your audience anybody in their seventies I know you still got plenty of life left but I think you still want you know but perhaps the younger face as a wing person and so I think Harris makes a lot of sense clover charm makes a fair amount of sense doesn't bring in the diversity but but a female B. P. I think would still have some sizzle to it and Harris I mean by Nordea's California so he's not going to gain a state with her right but but he won't also won't lose a Senate seat in I guess too and I'm sure plenty consultants are looking at it looking at email photos of them side by side what would look at them you know but we'll see Mike Emanuel before we cut to lose John Dempsey an instructor wants to write how bout Stacey Abrams in Georgia Georgia maybe I've seen it's a red state but it has dashes of purple from time to time with Stacey Abrams help Biden win Georgia perhaps idea somebody you know he's not front of mind to somebody who didn't run for president someone who has generated interest nationally you know in terms of her running for office in Georgia and so yeah I think that that's a fascinating idea and probably somebody on the short list that Biden H. Q. hi this is you need some some credentials I think to be vice president's gonna be seventy seven years old thank you my good man would much appreciated sorry no you're extraordinarily busy we'll talk to next week if not before thanks as always for had means stay healthy and well we're trying thank you Mike Emanuel from fox news joining us here in W.

going to cost yeah and tell you how it's going to ply tend to kick in for four years even after it passes we want a revolution let's act now past the Biden healthcare plan which takes obamacare restores all the cuts made to it subsidizes further provides for lower drug prices make sure that there's no hidden bills make sure that we invest a lot one invest fifty billion dollars in dealing with underlying diseases that are of great consequence diabetes Alzheimer's and cancer make sure that we have a Medicare option that's in the end I a public option providing Medicare fraud we can do that now I can get that passed I can get that done in my fine press nine states America that will be a fundamental change in it happens now I can tell you from experience being a significant restore health care with my sons my family all the things we've gone through what people want is hope and they needed now not four years from now on Bernie still in Costa told us I was going to pay for it we're talking about large was trillion dollar plan not quite true look let's do something that is very rarely done in the Congress let's do something that the media is also let's talk about the reality of American life why is it but over the last forty five years despite the huge increase in productivity and technology the average worker does not make a nickel more in real dollars why is it that over the last thirty years the richest one percent I've seen a twenty one trillion dollar increase in their wealth bottom half of America nine hundred billion dollar decline in their wealth why is it that we are the only major country does not to guarantee healthcare to all people is a human right why would the only major country not that paid medical and family leave why do we give tax breaks to billionaires when a half a million people homeless today and it comes down to something Jake we don't talk about the power structure in America who has the power and I'll tell you what's the balance it's the people who contribute money the billionaires will contribute money to political campaigns who controlled the legislative agenda those people have the power and if you want to make real changes in this country if you want to create an economy that works for all not just the few you want to guarantee quality healthcare to all not make a hundred billion a profit for the healthcare industry you know what you need you need to take on Wall Street you need to take on the drug companies and the insurance companies and the fossil fuel industry you don't take campaign contributions from them you take them on and created economy that works for all you wanna do that do what I propose over thirty years ago federally funded all elections no private contributions election process if you want to do that join me join me my constitutional moment that I've been proposing maybe you and I can work on that together because that would fundamentally change it and the application is I'm getting these cuts are not accepted a country's your anybody over twenty eight hundred dollars number one my average contribution is forty four dollars just this month I've raised thirty three million dollars average contribution fifty one dollars the idea that this is barb birdies implication as some on beef being funded by millionaires by looking the last that is super Tuesday before that burned out spent me two three four five six to one I still won I don't have any money I still want Sarah Sanders it's good that you had an idea thirty years ago I don't want to join you wanted to join me once you get rid of the super pac that you have right now which is running very ugly negative ads about me only after all that's just the truth and I got two of the super pacs running ads against what you're saying right now going television say Hey you know what I think in the past for about mistaken you condemned super pacs are correct you can read the nine super pacs you have I don't know I do but I'm not gonna be listed up yep you go head look okay come on give me a break well I will won't give you a break on this one Joe you condemn super pacs you got a super pac is running they're going to but here's the point this is the point in the richest country in the history of the world half of all people should not be struggling to put food on the table and the reason for that is you have a political structure in which big money interest not only dominate the political system but dominate our economy as well somebody makes a decision we're going to shut down a factory in America we're going to move to China we're gonna move to Mexico people saw a vision which is there this is an issue that has got to be ultimately deal with who has the power in America all we contend with so few exercising so much power with so many people have given up on the political process I propose a significant change in the tax code haven't frozen for a long long time number one number two it's not just about sh taxing the super wealthy it's about making sure everybody pays their fair share for example I can pay for my whole healthcare plan by changing the way in which we deal with capital gains people should pay the capital gains based on their income taxes and not a twenty percent that would raise eight hundred billion dollars pay for my entire medical healthcare plan which would cover everyone the fact that matter is everything I call for I pay for and I do not believe in I've not supported these exorbitant tax cuts for the wealthy I strongly opposed the the the tax cut to this present is put through a one trillion nine hundred billion dollars and I said at the time this is all about trying to eliminate the safety net look the idea that Bernie implies where he way he says things speaking of negative ads my lord Bernie you're running ads saying I'm opposed to social security the politicized says is a stat flat Y. and that the Washington post said is a flat line well let me ask you a question Joe yeah you're right here with me yeah have you been on the floor of the Senate you run the center for a few years now time and time again talking about the necessity with pride about cutting social security cutting Medicare cutting veterans programs now you never said that no all right America go to the website right now go to the YouTube right now time after time you were not a fan Bowles Simpson I was not a fan of doing not a fan of the balanced budget amendment which called for cuts in social security Camacho you walk look here's a daughter's dog what to do is tell the truth you we all make mistakes I am telling the truth you said that I in fact I will why am I rated ninety six percent by the so security organizations why am I viewed as a strong hold on I said I have laid out how I will increase so small dogs but I like that I have laid out how I'm going to make a living that it is in fact paid for Jake go to job Y. dot com look at my exchange with Paul Ryan on his desire to try to privatize and our cultural symbol right and understand how he manipulated and all right Joe let me repeat it again or what you just still be straight with the American people I am saying that you have been on the floor of the Senate time and time again talking about the need to cut social security Medicare and veterans programs is that true or is that no it's not true what is not true that is not true what is true is in terms of negotiations are taking place how to deal with the deficit everything was on the table I did not support any of those cuts in social security or veterans wall wall wall your your everything was on the table all right you're right you're just set including in your judgment cuts to social security environment in order to get the kinds of changes we need on other things relate to all this but we did not cut it I know because people like me help stop that but Joe you just contradict joke you just contradicted yourself one minute you're using one minute you're set I was on on the floor the next minute you say no well yes there was a reason why I was worried about the deficit maybe that's good reason maybe it's not all that I am saying is you were prepared to cut and advocated for the cuts let me I did not I never voted to cut social they'll talk about voter Joe that's like when I wrote it well look I voted to protect it I was just go look at the real debate with Paul Ryan for the vice presidency look at what I did and Bernie will your knowledge your campaign took out of context the whole exchange between Paul Ryan are you saying politicized is wrong he said while watching the bos blood doctors want a whole lot of plans but I'm not okay rolling now Joe Bernie's all did you miss your old one lance your question and he went to one I answer yours no you didn't all right one more time where are you on the floor time to time if for whatever reason talking about the need to collect social security and Medicare veterans program no I did not talk about the need to cut any of those programs okay although I would say to the American people go to YouTube it's all over the place Joe said it many many times I'm surprised you know you can defend that the P. or change your mind on it but you can't deny the Rialto senator because you brought up social security and given talking about it I want to ask you about something that you wrote in nineteen ninety six you were a member of the house and you wrote an op ed that said quote it is clear we will have to make incremental adjustments in social security taxes and benefits you know where your past comments any less relevant than I advocated it just means that I advocated and have advocated for years is among other things increasing the cost of living assistance no you're not gonna find me ever calling for cuts to social security right now for example we determine Cole.

nuts sometimes V. and all honesty but with your opinions but you're a wonderful person I mean we've been friends a long time and I do I have nothing but respect for you but I'm not gonna lie to you I'm loving the Cher show I'm loving the whole thing it's cracking me up the only thing is pastor Scott it's scaring the living daylights out of me because they're all nuts and they'll destroy the country that I don't like any of their foreign policy views I don't like their views on Medicare for all obamacare was a disaster every promise broken I don't like their new green deal insanity and everything's free and no oil and gas and no cows are planes eventually the fix is in on Bernie it's as plain as the nose on anybody's face because no one wants a casserole supporting communist in office Wall Street doesn't want to establishment of in one of the democratic party doesn't want they want him to go away for the big event not as far as much of the Jammu talking about somebody feeling like something was altered after him we felt that it was sold to her in twenty sixteen and the Democrats still have not accepted the results of the two thousand sixteen election so how can to set their employees that burning need to just accept the will of the voters when the whole Democratic Party has not accepted the will of the voters that's why we've had the canopies may hang up well that's a good question why does the winner the person who still haven't accepted that we thought what is that well that's true too what why doesn't the Democratic Party whoever gets the most votes of the people why doesn't that person get the nomination jumbo which by the way is a very different argument from the electoral college because you want all fifty states represented equally so you don't want New York California New Jersey deciding the fate of the country every election I'm all for getting rid of the electoral college I'm off course both what I mean was it see all that red in the middle of the country I don't think they're going to agree with that go ahead are we on the same page start an electoral college of your voting no I said it's very different the reason the electoral colleges in in existence is to allow equal representation from the lesser populated states and simple so that they have representation I'll tell you right now you get rid of the electoral college you're gonna lose states they're gonna leave little always wanted to change the world wonders never won any of the rules they didn't want to talk out of the P. up hours when Barack Obama won but when done which one they wanted to feel about it the view I said something that I I want to I want to correct because I as a Democrat and as someone who has worked in leadership positions within the Democratic Party I even ran for DNC chair I have accepted the results of twenty sixteen here's what happened in twenty sixteen Donald Trump he did anyone that's an excel sheet what your just about stop how did Donald Trump cheat and that's where we are and how did Donald Trump Jim I'm asking a question how did Donald Trump cheat from Russia we noticed hi everybody stop here now I'm going to go give you a history we have had a nine month FBI investigation and even Peter struck a Lisa paid said they found nothing no there there we had a house intelligence committee investigation no trump Russia collusion we had the bipartisan Senate committee no trump Russia collusion we had the ever anticipated Muller report no trump Russia collusion the only collusion with Russia was Hillary Clinton's bought and paid for dirty Russian dossier full of lies that was then used as the unverifiable as a call court a premeditated fraud there was never any trump Russia collusion jemu none why did you not watch my program you need to watch and listen to this program well Schama markers sale watches every night but I certainly watch it when I need to understand what it is we are up against and the reality is wealthy white men have been cheating their way to victory forever all right thank you thank you man I love you but let me go to pastor Scott because of it you know pastor Scott here's the problem there's no truth to what journalists saying and I say this respectfully we've had for investigations the only trump Russia cold the only collusion that happened with Russia was Hillary the only other foreign interference was the DNC according to politico January eleventh twenty seventeen and a Ukrainian court a DNC operative Alexander chalupa goes to the Ukrainian embassy in Washington to get dirt on trump and his associates the political concluded was effective in work so that never happened the Democrats leading candidates right now are wealthy white men so I don't understand what her argument if we will do what ministerial actions will be white man tried to steal the election in twenty sixteen from Donald Trump and we're not able to do and so you know listen Joe Biden I mean the fix is in on Bernie we see this Joe Biden stands up and his dementia is glaringly apparent right now and if it was Donald Trump making those gas is mental health is mental state would be questioned Joe Biden did not even know what troops were self evident he didn't know what day it was or what office he was running they need to get this guy out here but Bernie is a communist

Bernie Sanders the only person on the stage you think the person with the pledged delegate lead should be the nominee and the long time rules set out by the Democratic National Committee at all the campaigns have signed on to is that you need a fifty percent plus one majority to be the nominee that that this year that magic number is one thousand nine hundred and ninety one with such a splintered field it's hard to see how somebody you know gets that of course they want the majority of the entire party behind that candidate but he mentioned super delegates which could be really important because their role is change this year yeah just briefly how has it changed yeah look these are these long time party officials and there's about seven hundred of them the they had their

coronavirus outbreak in China was caused by what's called spill over that's when an animal virus jumps into humans and coronavirus spillovers were thought to be rare but researchers working in China say they found evidence that the spill overs have been happening all along and yours and re Eisenman reports we're gonna start the story with the scene at NPR actually recorded three years ago in Malaysian Borneo okay mask is on closer on Kevin all of all is at the edge of a rainforest sitting in a make shift outdoor biology lab their plastic chairs and on a folding table he places a small creature he's just caught a female back the third girl okay a little is a disease ecologist with a nonprofit research group eco health alliance he starts taking samples of the bath body fluids they were getting the oral side in the back of the throat and I'm just I'm just holding her head between my two fingers with a leather glove on a little bit on the question sample on that form that was a reaction to a rectal salon he wants to check the samples for viruses that's are known for carrying some dangerous ones particularly viruses that have the potential to kick off global outbreaks so although his colleagues are on the hunt for the next big threat a few more swabs and it's all done and now she gets a special treat a little bit a mango juice as a reward during that same period that NPR recorded this although his colleagues were also in the process of collecting samples from thousands of bats in China and all will says what they found is alarming yeah so we we found evidence for in total from all the sampling we did in China about like four hundred new strains of coronaviruses that means four hundred potential candidates to spark another outbreak a corona virus caused a massive outbreak in China back in two thousand two to two thousand three severe acute respiratory syndrome or sars and this current outbreak is from a sars related corona virus it gets worse scientists had thought spillovers were rare that coronaviruses weren't generally capable of infecting humans it took a lot of complicated steps step one a bat coronavirus had in fact some animal species ahead closer contact with people step two while in that animal's body the virus had to pick up new genetic code but the sampling project found all those steps not needed what we showed was that sars related viruses in the bat population have the potential to go directly into human cells and do not need for that extra nutritional stopped by inspecting another post in other words the past to sparking new outbreaks is potentially much more direct for example one of the corona viruses they found was a very close genetic match for the sars virus so they put it in a Petri dish with human cells and it infected them all will says the fact that a bat coronavirus had the ability to infect human cells reason obvious next question as their evidence that those viruses are actually infected people so the researchers started taking blood samples from villagers in China who lived near some of the bat caves they've been studying hung in league is ecologist with eco health alliance she says people in the back kids all the time they were popular local hang out well well well into the caves for sampling we usually see people's like it beer bottle and all like a water bottle he and her colleagues check the villagers blood for signs of recent infections with bat coronaviruses and they did this again with people in some other rural areas both times we find corn of ours is a that's already spill over into human population multiple outbreaks that had gone undetected Kevin although says this is a huge red flag that sort of the signal was there that the sars related viruses were jumping into people even if they weren't causing any noticeable disease people might have had symptoms but health authorities never picked up on it which brings us to this current coronavirus outbreak as soon as it started eagle health alliances collaborators in China compare the new virus to the bat samples they collected and they found an extremely close match viral taxonomists would probably call that the same virus species this new outbreak that's infected tens of thousands of people could have come directly from bats all will says the larger take away is clear these about sars related coronaviruses are actively going over in the human population not all of them will sparked deadly pandemics but the more frequent these.

"So how could you say that he should stay in power? When he's the reason you don't have free and fair elections. Which part of this Senator Sanders. Do you not understand? And let's go back to the first point which is a question from one about one guy though. This was hey, Rama's asking the questions there. One guy though is the recognised leader of Venezuela. And to say, no is to fly in the face of the Venezuelan people the national assembly there has rules and one of the rules is that if if they decide the national assembly that there's an election irregularity, if there is something improper that the president of the national assembly will be in charge. The president of the national assembly is one guide. Oh, so he is the leader. The United States has not instituted some kind of coup as people ignorantly like Representative Ilhan, Omar and a host of others have tried to make claim to they either don't understand the situation. To which how does a guy like Bernie Sanders nonsense situation. How does he dare think he'd be president of the United States? Or it's purposeful because how can they admit that the socialism of nNcholas Maduro didn't work. There are people who actually think that the corruption and the crime and the violence of Venezuela is not part and parcel of the socialist regime. And those people. Are very very special people. King friday. Getting done very special. This is a whole level of of not just ignorance of purposeful wanting ignorance, it's all it is you can't be you can't be serious and have that conversation. The destruction the disaster the evil the violence the the corruption of Venezuela. In this Venezuela is because of socialism. It's actually having this conversation with my brother the good doctor Katz yesterday. When you give governments more and more power. I thought this was a great point. People will find ways to pay people in government to be able to have that power benefit them. That's how you get corruption. So by definition, wouldn't you be better with the government that had less power? Therefore, you have less opportunities for corruption. And what is what this whole group of people? This is me now. That somehow think that, you know, socialism works. It's just nobody's done. It right. The hubris of these people who think that somehow they can do it better. They're so enlightened, you know, all those other people for the past century. They thought they were enlightened to you know, what happened everybody died. You know, what happened Lenin Stalin? Chad. Chad was a murderer. Right. We understand that Shakur ours. Not just some cougar was a murderous thug bastard, and we should all be glad he's dead. Fidel. Chavez madero. What do you think is happening? All of them. You think you're smarter than all of them. You're more pious, then all the good Lord. That is that is a serious bunch ignorance right there. But that's Bernie Sanders. The other thing I wanted to share was Lara. Logan, Lara Logan sixty minutes. CBS she's on Hannity and her conversation on Hannity. I thought was spectacular. I wanted to give it to you in full here. Because Lara Logan went on a podcast to say the. Yeah. The media's left the left leaning, and it's a real problem. And she continued this theme on Hannity show. And I thought it was I thought it was very refreshing. Well, it's obvious right because you get targeted, and it's the same group of people there already starting to talk me again now, and I expected it, and you know, I was joking that embraced for fire and fury because I know they're gonna come off to me again. And I'm not the only one in the same people come off to you write one of them the Sparrow project. I mean this person was tweeting today. You know, Hannity, you know, watch out. About lower Logan stuff. Right. And there's more coming Michael Calderone who was at the Huffington Post. I can literally give you the script. Now, I can tell you who the players are Joe Hagan, Brian Stelter is the same time, and they're all saying the same things, and they come off the Cheryl Atkinson, they come off to you. They come after me. I mean, if you if there are any independent voices out there, if there are any journalists who are not beating the same drum and giving the same talking points, then we pay the price. And if they know what's interesting shown, they can't take down the substance of what you're saying. Right. They can't go after the things that matter. So they smear you personally, they go off to your integrity. They go after your reputation as a as a person and as a professional and they'll stop at nothing. So, you know, I'm not the only one. And and I'm just like I'm done, right. I'm tired of it. And they don't get to write my story anymore. They don't get to speak for me. I wanted to say loudly and clearly to anybody who's listening. I am not own. Nobody owns me. Right. I'm not owned by the ladder. Even pixar. I really don't matter. Because it doesn't matter. I'm not gonna lie to you. And pretend I have. No like, I have no bias. That's just not true. Right. I mean, that's a part of who we are as human beings. We all have opinions on things. I don't pretend. I don't have opinions. My point about the sources is that I've worked with so many great panelists. I can tell you many of their name Sarah Carter is one of them. Right. I have so much respect for her work. And and there are so many people at sixty minutes, and in many other places who I have such great respect for and bits because I didn't invent this. Journalists have always needed to independent firsthand sources that's always been the standard that we work to. It's not me. I'm not alone. I'm not the only one. And you know, I mean, people know people know that we've slipped people know that when you're not when. Those are no longer standards that you're you know. That raises questions if you're honest. That's an unbelievably refreshing conversation to here. And it is is also very true. That of course, a reporter has a bias human beings have a bias. I get it. But we want the reporting to be the reporting. We don't want the reporting to be attacked pieces. We don't want the reporting to be this beyond level of aggression, because they think that there's some how morally superior. That's the part that we want nothing to do with. And honestly, I don't know what happens with her career. She thinks it's career suicide Hannity went out of his way to make sure that his bosses a Fox News that they should hire Lara Logan. I don't know what happens there. That's not the part. I can give comment to buddy. Is she having an honest conversation. You better believe.

"Reduced. Yeah. I agree with Senator Sanders ACLU and others. See this not as a see this as anti-siege anti first amendment Bill. The fact that we have our senators that right now could be voting on opening up our government. They have the bills in their hands are voting on this. That's distracting us from what is our focus, which is the American people, and I can tell you looking at. This push among even just the state's saying that you will not employ someone that doesn't sign some sort of allegiance to say that they will not boycott another country. It is literally at the core. Right. There is literally an attack on our constitution on our one of the most critical rights that we have in our country is freedom of speech. I cannot imagine our country not having the right to economic boycott think about. Alabama Montgomery think about McGovern Alabama and all around the country, civil rights movement, even alone now from those that are, you know, occupy Occupy Wall mart all the attack on the corporations. All of those folks are using the right to speak to write to economic boycott the right to be able to push up against things that they disagree with. That is there's nothing wrong with that. I just wish the United States senators that are in power that are in leadership right now would not be so focused on taking away our rights and be focused on helping the thousands of families millions going on the eighteenth day that are impacted by this government. Lemme ask you to respond to the criticism you've faced about this recent tweet you posted concerning the Bill you tweeted, quote, they forgot what country they represent. This is the US were boycotting as a right? And part of our historical fight for freedom and equality. Maybe. A refresher on our US constitution is an order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away, unquote. Some critics claim the comment was anti semitic. Jonathan green Blat head of the Anti-Defamation League tweeted intentional or not this could be interpreted as offensively insinuating dual loyalty a trope with a long and troubling history. It's possible to engage in the democratic process without claiming the other side is disloyal. He said your response congressman. Everyone knows what my tent was. I said read the United States constitute constitution. That's exactly what I want them to do because that is the law of the land. So for me that is why they have forgotten what country that we are representing. I need them to focus on our values and on understanding that even that tweet. I mean, look at it. It just says read the constitution, focus, focus on our values and our our rights right now. I don't want our right to be able to speak in descent to be taken away. I don't care if it Saudi Arabia or Israel in any other country. I can't imagine are members of congress or even a residents back in the day that push back against the partied in Africa, not to be able to to boycott. All of these kinds of claims are just farce they will continue to be my mirror existence as a member of congress as a Palestinian is causes a lot of fear because I'm here as a human being as an American that is saying to the world that we exist, and that alone anything to push up against that. And to label me a some sort of anti I can tell you from campaigning against take on hate to pushing back against so much racism and bigotry against everyone based on anybody based on their faith is what I do. I'm a daily basis, and so I can tell you that it's a way to try to to possibly reduce what I'm trying to say to try to sway people away that this is not what what I'm trying to basically say my tweet, which is this is against the United States constitution. So I really. Wish in know that many people agree with me that freedom of speech is is something sacred and something that is important that we need to very much protect. Before we end congress member today. Can you just describe to us this ethic day last week this historic day when more than hundred women were sworn into congress, you among them you made history, of course, as one of two most the first two Muslim women along with L Honda. Omar be sworn in your wearing a Palestinian though, you were there with your children describe that moment to us..

"It could be, for example, remand to a district court for reconsideration according to whatever they rule they could or they could deny our appeal and uphold the district court. Right. And that'll be, you know, that could be the end of that. But both parties will also have the chance to either go further and appeal. So if let's say AT and t. loses presumably they could ask for either an on Bonk here or go to the supreme court and we would, but you know, that would be our choices. But you know whether or not the Type case. of case you felt from your perspective? Sure. You always consider whether you should or not. 'cause there's a risk that you would then set a bad precedent athlete. Now that is a larger bad precedent, but this was the opinion were so flawed that I thought it was really important to get in this area. There isn't guidance right to the to the business community. What what are the contours? What should be the limits and many people said, well, this is so fact-based that this is limited to this, but not an antitrust. There's not that many antitrust litigation. So these have an outsized impact on the business community. And I think it's important to have guidance and clarify the Air's. Now if you know if the court rules that we were wrong and that'll be that's exactly right. So let in this section and then I went to where the future is going all these companies. You got dragged into a political fight. How was how much pressure was that? Funny because most the president. Had said very negative things about CNN and continues to do. How did you address that you did you, or how did you feel about that? Well, AT and t. try to make it an issue of Trump's pretty loud about saying he did. He'd made some comments before he was president during the campaign, but but he wasn't the only one. I think the other candidates, including, you know, secretary Clinton and Senator. Sanders said that I to think I forget maybe twenty senators who wrote to me saying that blocked this merger or do not do a behavioral remedy or something. So this was a bipartisan criticism about this transaction and consolidation in general. Now it makes no sense and that the merger action was brought because of somehow an animus to CNN. Yeah, because if you actually logically think about the case, what we were arguing was to have Time Warner distribute Tribune, which includes CNN as broadly as possible. 'cause our theory is if it's. Merged, then you won't distribute broadly in order to seek rent for direct TV. And you know, are you going to give up a couple of bucks of a license fee for a channel in order to gain a new subscriber of direct TV that might be worth fifteen hundred bucks? Right. That's again, that's the math that we were dealing with. So the logic made no sense, and the judge shut that part down. And they said that, you know, they tried to make that, but there was a major PR effort by AT and t. in this case and they it was salacious enough that if people were not familiar with antitrust law and and what we were arguing, oh, this might be, but it really wasn't and had nothing to do with it pressure from that. Oh, you know, these jobs come with part of that. You just kind of you do what you do. Again, Justice, Jackson, you know, you go back and read him and about, you know, he gave a beautiful speech in the great hall to the second. And gathering of the US attorney's nineteen forty at Justice where to this day, I think it is should be a model for every law enforcement official, which federal prosecutor I said, you know, we have a huge role as prosecutors. We, you know, you can indict, you can prosecute. You can do a lot of things and the constitution empowers you, but you have to do the right thing and the reason why you are in these jobs and it requires, you know, presidential appointment and Senate confirmation is that you have to win. You know, a seal of approval of your character by not only the executive branch, which is the branch data points you the president, but also from the legislative branch, which is the Senate that has to confirm you an important part and says, you know, you really need to factor in and you don't go after individuals..
