Biden meets with Republicans on COVID-19 relief

"Republican lawmakers today that just wrapped up led by Senator Susan Collins to discuss New covert 19 relief package more in depth now from Elizabeth Schultz. He was covering it for ABC News and talked with Cuomo's Taylor Vance Ice Elizabeth. We know President Biden is in favor of a $1.9 trillion package. What is Senator Collins and her team pushing for well, they are wanting a much smaller packages. The reality here they're pushing for a deal worth $618 billion persons at $1.9, Trillion put forward by President Biden. It includes some of the same provisions like Monday like money for vaccine distribution, small businesses childcare in schools, and it also includes another round of stimulus checks. The Republican proposal includes stimulus checks for $1000. Or individuals. But it's a much smaller group of Americans that we've seen in the past and in President Biden's proposal, these would only go to people making up to $50,000 a year. The Republicans are calling it a much more targeted approach. Given how much economic stimulus has already been passed, they say, We just do not need to pass this trillion dollar amounts. Okay, Any word at this point, though, if the president's team or the president himself is willing to bite on any of that, not at all. We're hearing from the White House, in fact that this is a meeting to exchange ideas. Not to reach some sort of grand bargain. The White House has said time and time again that the risk is that not enough ages past versus too much, so they seem to really be standing by this nearly $2 trillion amount. Now. The question is if they're going to move forward in Congress, with a plan that could essentially passed by this proposed proposal without any Republican votes. So far, the House and the Senate have taken the first step to do that, in a process called budget reconciliation that would essentially allow this Broader package to pass to the simple majority in both the House and the Senate that we wouldn't need a bipartisan deal to be reached at the end of the day. So that's something that President Biden was really pushing for. On the campaign trail is this idea of bipartisanship. Now, As this meeting began between Republicans and the president, there was some news that broke from the Congressional Budget Office right about how the U. S economy. Is expected to recover. There is no notably today that Congressional Budget Office upgraded its forecast for the economy and now expects GDP growth to reach its pre pandemic level. By the middle of this year, so this complicates the negotiations a little bit, and that the forecast seems a little bit rosier than had previously been thought. At the same time, the CBO says it's going to take years for the jobs market to fully recover with millions of Americans. Well unemployed and the White House response to this was essentially that even if the broader economy looks like it's going to come back, there's still so many people who need aid to pay their rent. You cannot get through the day to day and there is no question that we need more money to get these vaccines after people so they're still standing by their kind of push for more stimulus, And they say that really they're just cannot be enough. Aid right now, even if the outlook is looking a little bit better here and just for my own clarification that this CBO congressional budget office estimation that's assuming that there wasn't another sort of relief package passed, right. That's correct. That's based on the current outlook, just as it is, and I will know that there have been other afternoons out there that say that if the current package passed by Biden go through, that would significantly boost to growth even by a lot more. Alright. The ABC is Elizabeth shows

Today, Control shifted from Republicans, two Democrats by the slimmest possible margin. First Vice President Harris swore in the new Democratic senators from Georgia who will give her party the numerical edge. And that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God. Yeah. Congratulations to tell us more. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle aside there. Hi, Ari. Tell us more about what happened today. So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days.

And so what happened to them yesterday morning cuts at the soul of every Jewish-American? My boss is Jewish carpenter. And no matter what happens in political discourse in America that brings violence and the American media, the press CNN and their allies, always lecture, Trump Republicans and conservatives about our anger our rhetoric and our violence, but when progressives explode which happens on a regular basis, like stabbing Republicans sanding trucks on fire that say, I support Trump sending Sarah sending rice in in the mail to numerous Republicans, including Senator Susan Collins, or the children are the president whenever that goes on at no point are progressives ever lectured by the press, somehow, it's twisted and turned into Trump Republicans conservatism. Even when the president is the only one in American history to have Jewish grandchildren in even though the murderer in Pittsburgh. Had postings saying how much she hated Trump because Trump had Jewish grandchildren and Trump supported Israel. Somehow CNN is still twisted this thing and the something's wrong with Trump never mentioning the hatred. The radicalism of the left which exceeds what happens on the right? The whole Ferguson in Baltimore. Oh, the race writes the shooting at cops in Dallas in Baton Rouge came from black lives matter from the left never any connections. Forever. Made between the cop killers in Dallas during a rally a black lives matter, and then meeting in the White House with those same leadership of black lives matter saying what a great job they're doing and civil rights by the President Barack Hussein Obama and the media never said, wait a minute mister mister president. How do you meet with the leaders of a group advocating the killing of cops? What do we want dead cops? When you want them now, pigs in a blanket. Prime like bacon. There's never a connection made it doesn't exist. But Republicans and Trump are lectured constantly whenever violence takes place. It's always Trump's fault Trump's rhetoric.

Have you heard about the white powder? The rice in attack on the home of Senator Susan Collins by a leftist after she voted to confirm Brad Kavanagh, nor all the attacks on Trump's children.

Anna charade created by Democrats of the Democrats so far left that will end up being. As well as being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican. I have no idea how this is going to play in a full month from now. Then the cavenaugh thing could seem like a long time ago. I heard a political researchers say, yeah, everybody's energized. Now, and there's a lot of talk about who's going to their holes and the rest of it. And she said a month is a lifetime in politics in terms of enthusiasm. It always has been an especially now, but as to the accusation of whether the Democrats tortured Cavanaugh, we tortured some folks a confession from Barack Obama. Meanwhile, Senator Susan Collins was undecided news member on Kavanagh's nomination. She waited and waited and she waited she did her due diligence read all the FBI background investigation notes and found even after the FBI has interviewed everyone whom Dr Ford has named as present that horrible night that she remembers every single one of them, including her best friend has no recollection of anything like bats. And. So if you keep him off the court because a her claim, I think that's insane. But all of the media based on interviews. I saw over the weekend just thinks it's a horror that that wasn't enough. Or they have figured out what their audience wants to hear is giving it to them. And now that she's caster vote for cavenaugh. She says things have gotten even more scary more dangerous telling sixty minutes, this is as a situation as sag effort.

"Radio five, sixty key SFO. Hi, welcome back. There is a development. And I don't know what I think about this. I had my gut reaction to it. And then I backed off and I started thinking about it. It's a tweet from Senator Susan Collins, Susan Collins from Maine, she is buddy buddy with Lisa Murkowski. Lasca two Republican senators who are constantly thought to be on the bubble. And whenever there is a judicial nominee for any position. But especially the supreme court. I if there is any it is said that if there is any. This indication that that nominee might not be thinking the right way at abortion, and Susan Collins and Murkowski will vote with Democrats to kill the nomination. And because of this the Democrats are constantly applying pressure to both of them, and they have been working overtime to try to pressure. Susan Collins to commit to voting against cavenaugh because of their clams that he would reverse Roe versus Wade, and all paranoia that the Democrats have and she resisted. So the next thing they did they created a gofundme me I'm paying for a phantom candidate to oppose her. In the Senate campaign for main in that that that gofundme campaign or however, they funded it reached a million dollars. They were trying to blackmail her. They were telling her if you will commit devoting cavenaugh, then we'll pull this money out of the race against you. And we will not assist a candidate who opposed you. She didn't she didn't buck to that. When that failed they sent her and I'm not making this up. But I'm sorry. I have to tell you, but they sent her a three foot cardboard cutout of male genitalia. In another attempt to I I don't know what a bully her or offender, and she said, this is it I've had enough of this. I'm had enough of these anti cabin on tactics. So that Susan Collins, and she has been as I say target for much bullying and manipulation by the left. So she she sent a tweet out a little over an hour ago. Her tweet says I'm writing to the chairman and ranking member of the judiciary committee is that that would be Grassley and Feinstein, I'm writing to the chairman or ranking member to judiciary committee respectfully recommending that at Monday's hearing lawyers for professor Ford be allocated time to question judge Cavanaugh and lawyers for judge Cavanaugh. Be granted equal time to question. Professor Ford followed by questions from senators. My first reaction when I saw that was why don't we just cash in chips now and say the country as we knew it is over. We're now officially the Jerry Springer show in the United States Senate. Or or take your pick. Whatever daytime soap opera fair that people. Why are we serious about this? That lawyers for professor Ford be allowed time to question cavenaugh and his lawyers be allowed time to question. Her the way, she still has not responded to the invitation to show up to this thing on Monday. I think they ought to bag this and just do the vote on Thursday to hell with it. Just bag it and do it. But they won't because they're afraid of losing it now. But that doesn't matter the committee vote doesn't matter. Mitch McConnell can schedule a full Senate vote on this nominee without the committee voting. You know, protocol judiciary committee has a vote, and then that's supposed to inform the rest of the Senate that it's okay to vote for the guy or that. They shouldn't. I mean, that's how silly it is the judiciary committee votes, not going to determine how people in the general population of the Senate vote, but. We're actually because somebody said a letter to Dianne Feinstein. We're going to do all that we're we're gonna have a circus on Monday and code pink, and every leftist protest groups going to be in there. If you remember the embarrassment that happened during the confirmation hearings for four days Kavanagh's parents with their heads in their hands in a moment that. Any other time in American history would be one of the proudest most glorious days for an American family. That one of their children had succeeded and achieved in life to the point being nominated to be an associate Justice on the United States of Precourt. And it was turned into. Circus is not even the right way to describe what they did with the Democrats acquiescence in and letting it happen. I am certain. What should have been a moment of great, pride and. Overwhelming. Love and excitement was was turned into a. Despicable. Embarrassing. Spectacle. That was beneath all of the decency. This country is known for. And it was by design if they allowed that to happen during confirmation hearings. Can you imagine what this thing on Monday would become? So lawyers interrogate her and other lawyers interrogate him. As a nominee to be on the United States Supreme court and allegation that her lawyer says she doesn't even have to prove. And then after all that blowhard senators get their turn asking questions Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, dick Turpin. Susan Collins, then tweeted such an approach would provide more continuity. It would elicit the most information and allow an in-depth examination of the allegations. That is just. Whatever it is. It is a gigantic comedown Eddie rate. All this notwithstanding hurt tweet probably will send the Democrats into orbit with rage because they were counting on flipping her. They were counting on her saying before this even began she's had enough. This is the last straw. I can't support the guy look at what's being said I can't possibly, but that's what they were hoping Collins would say now she wants to. See a circus. Kavanagh's lawyer hired a lawyer, I should tell you this. Brent was hired Beth Wilkinson. Does the neighboring about who Beth Wilkinson is a she's the wife of David Gregory. Of CNN slash NBC. Be she represented Hillary Clinton staffers during the FBI investigation into Clinton's private server. Those staffers were Cheryl mills, Jake Sullivan, Heather Samuelsson, Philippe Reines. She's also said to be a stellar lawyer. And apparently one of her specialties is defamation. Attacking and defending defamation. Which is exactly what this is. This is an upfront attempt to defame and destroy Rhett Cavanaugh, so say yesterday, you know, we we oppose some of the nominees Democrats put forward, when's the last time you remember anybody on our side trying to literally destroy the life and career and reputation of a political opponent any more so than they already had. Bill Clinton was evidence. He did nothing was made up. And all those people defending Bill Clinton saying it doesn't matter. It's just sex Hillary Clinton, and all these other people responsible for trashing these women that came forward are. Now, the same people claiming that Cavanaugh is scum. And that this woman who's never said a word about any of this for thirty six years is eminently believable. After take another break. And I promise we'll come back and resume with the phones. Because a lot of people wanna way..
