Fresh update on "steny hoyer" discussed on Today, Explained

"All of that sort of fed into her mindset going into the Trump era when she did very publicly slow role and bad mount the idea of impeachment. Impeachment is a very divisive measure. But if we have to go there, we'll have to go there. But we can't go there unless we have the facts and we will follow the facts and we will follow the obstruction that the president is making up a sort of getting the fact and make our decision when we're ready. That's the only question. That's all I'm going to say about this subject. No, when she first got the gavel back in 2019, the Mueller report was not out yet and a lot of investigations were underway in Congress on that issue and many others with regard to Trump and there was a lot of pressure within the democratic caucus to get impeachment proceedings going on various fronts and she resisted and resisted and resisted until the Ukraine scandal broke. It started with an explosive claim that Donald Trump pressured the Ukrainian president into launching a corruption investigation against his political rival Joe Biden and his family in exchange for U.S. Military aid. And then gave the green light under pressure from her members, particularly the moderates in the caucus. But still very grudgingly and still in a very limited way, and to this day there are a fair number of Democrats who believe that that impeachment might have been more successful if she had given it a little bit more breathing room had not insisted on it being extremely limited in scope and extremely short in duration in part because she thought it was potentially damaging politically. You know, I argue in my book that the key to understanding Nancy Pelosi is that she's all about results. She cares very little about how things are perceived. She just wants to get to the results and a former mentor of hers use this word about her operational. That I think is really the key to understanding her. So when she looks at something like impeachment, she says, well, what is going to be the result of this? Are we just sort of going to make ourselves happy that we made a statement? Because from her perspective and I think this was certainly proven, right? There was very little chance that they were ever going to force Donald Trump from office. I wonder, you know, politics in the United States looks different now than from when she originally became speaker. How much did these two impeachments plus an insurrection plus a brutal attack on her husband change her view of American politics? It's such an interesting question, and I think the answer is actually very little. Not because she's some sort of rigid partisan or even because, you know, she's 82 years old and already quite said in her views. But one sort of hallmark of her career is that in a lot of cases, she has been more cynical about the Republican Party than a lot of her legislative partners on the democratic side of the aisle. 'cause she got to Congress in 1987 when Democrats had controlled the House for decades to the point where it seemed like that was just sort of the state of nature and nothing could change it. And then, of course, Newt Gingrich and the Republican revolution came along in 94, and introduced a level of toxicity and partisanship into Congress that had not been there previously. And that really led her to be extremely cynical about the Republicans and their intentions and whether they could be trusted. Fast forward several years when she's in House leadership in the early 2000s and the Iraq War is being debated and a lot of the top leaders of the Democratic Party were in favor of allowing George W. Bush to go to war in Iraq. Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi was whipping the House Democrats against the war authorization. We'll pay any price to protect the American people, but is this the right way to go to jeopardize in a serious way our young people when that can be avoided? And I think in retrospect, most people, I would say that she was right. And some of that may have come from just sort of her cynicism about the Republicans and whether they could be trusted to tell the truth. But go forward to the Obama era when Obama spends a lot of time trying to get Republican votes for the stimulus, trying to get a Republican buy in for healthcare reform. And it was speaker Pelosi, who was really the chief person in the presidency or saying you're wasting your time, they're not going to do it. They're going to spend a lot of time pretending. And then they're not going to give you the votes. And sure enough, that's what happened. So, you know, I think it's fair to implicate her in some of the contemporary partisanship that has infected politics. She is not of all of the sort of strengths I've listed of hers. One of them is not her relationships across the aisle. And she has, despite being from the same state as the potentially incoming Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, she has virtually no relationship with him and is openly contemptuous of his intelligence and legislative skills. She thinks he's real dumb. She has called him a moron, yes. You know, when I spoke with her immediately after she gave her speech on the House floor, announcing that she was stepping down from congressional leadership. This was one of the things that I asked her about sort of her legacy and what she leaves behind. And she said in no uncertain terms, I do not take any responsibility for the unreasonableness of the Republican Party, basically. She believes it is all on them. It is all their fault. I guess as you might expect from a person as partisan as she is, she blames the other side completely for the partisanship that's out there. There are a number of reasons for her to step down. Dems lost power, her caucus has wanted fresh leadership for some time. Her husband got brutally attacked. She's 82. Which of these was it? Or was it all of them? On the point about her husband's attack, that was something that discussed with her. And she had said before the election that her thinking about whether to stay in Congress and stay in leadership had been affected by that brutal attack on her husband. What she told me in a couple other reporters was that it did affect her thinking but not in the way that people thought. If people thought that she looked at that and thought, my God, I've got to get out of this horrible politics business, it was actually exactly the opposite. She said it motivated her to find a way to stay on because she didn't want to quote give them the satisfaction of having forced her out. But more than anything, it's just time in her view and in the view certainly of a lot of congressional Democrats, even those who admire her. The fact that not only has she been the leader of the congressional Democrats for 20 years. But for more than 15 years, her and steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn have been the top three congressional Democrats, which means if you're a young ambitious member of the House of Representatives on the democratic side, there's basically no upward mobility. There's nothing you can do or there hasn't been in decades to climb the ladder of congressional leadership. So a lot of very promising legislators on the democratic side have instead gone and run for Senate or governor in their states or left politics entirely left the house entirely. I think it's been hard for her to let go of a job that has just consumed her. But of course, she won't leave Congress just yet. She was just reelected and says she'll serve out the rest of the term. Is that the most Nancy move ever? That's right. And it's very funny to imagine her as sort of a backbencher, right? And when she talked about it right after she announced her decision, she was so excited to just be a regular member of Congress. So she says she anticipates the next two years involving a lot of thank yous. Both her thanking a lot of people and being thanked by a lot of people and just sort of taking, I think, a two year victory lap. And she says she doesn't want to be a sort of shadow speaker, the way she described it. This was right before Thanksgiving. She said, well, I don't want to be the mother in law in the kitchen saying, well, that's not how my son likes the stuffing or that's not how we cook it in our House. So she claims she's not going to be a backseat driver. But it's impossible to imagine that she won't be consulted

"Congress gets back to work this week after the holiday break, there's a lot of ground to cover between now and early January as well when the Republicans take control of the House officially. This morning CBS congressional correspondent Scott mcfarlane with some of the priorities of House Democrats right now. A memo issued to his colleagues by the outgoing House majority leader local congressman steny Hoyer lays out a few different things they want to get done by the end of December before Democrats lose control of the U.S. House. One of them is the respect for marriage act, this bill to strengthen protections for same sex marriage. Another is the electoral Reform Act, kind of obscure, but it would finalize or firm up the proceedings that are supposed to happen on future January 6th after elections to make sure there's no recurrence of the chaos of January 6th, 2021. They also want to keep the government from shutting down as we all would like to see happen. They need to get a spending plan finalized by December 16th. That's coming up on us, but they'd like a longer term one. Probably not just a sure federal workers, the lights will stay on, but to prevent Republicans from using that as a negotiating tool, the first months of Republican control. We have the House leadership elections coming up this week. How are they shaping up? That's Wednesday. At this moment, it appears the three top House Democrats will all be new names and new faces with steny Hoyer and speaker Nancy Pelosi stepping back from leadership, the new House democratic leader appears to be Hakeem Jeffries. Congressman from New York has been around here for about ten years. Catherine Clark of suburban Boston would be the democratic whip. And Pete Aguilar, who's on that January 6th committee, shaping up to be the number three leader unopposed, it appears. So when votes happen Wednesday and Thursday, it seems like a lock they'll be in. One local race I'm watching. Jerry Connolly, a Virginia. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, both vying to be the top Democrat on the House oversight committee, which has huge oversight over issues involving the district and the federal government. And now that the Supreme Court refused to block Congress from getting a hold of former president Trump's tax returns, what is the timetable for lawmakers to get to see them for the investigation? It's really vaguely they keep saying soon or as soon as possible and me checking every 5 minutes doesn't appear to be speeding up the process. One thing I'll note, it's unlikely the House ways and means committee, which has secured these tax returns or will soon secure them. It's not likely they're going to post them online for everybody to review. It'll be used as part of a report they're going to the issue

"The United States in a must win match of the World Cup and a torch passes as speaker Pelosi steps down. From the Bloomberg interactive broker studio in New York, welcome to the second hour of balance of power. I'm David Weston. In the wake of the midterm elections, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that she would not run once again for a leadership position in the democratic caucus, ending a very long and very accomplished period, whether you like what she did or not she was very effective. There's just no doubt about that. We turn now to somebody who knows the speaker very well and nadeem Al shami, his policy director at brownstein Hyatt, farber schreck, and he's earlier served as chief of staff to speaker Nancy Pelosi. So thank you so much for being with us. Let me start with the most obvious question. Were you surprised when she announced that she would not run for reelection to leadership? One thing that the speaker had taught all of us who work for her and even her members is never be surprised, right? Everything is planned, everything is strategic. So frankly, no, if there was a time that for her to step down, I think that was it, but that was based on I'm sure some thinking and she even said it. But her decisions are always strategic and what's interesting is how the democratic next generation of leaders kind of moved in to that position without the big, we have the big fight that the Democrats sometimes are well known for. Well, it is a next generation because her number two steny Hoyer also announced he would not be in leadership and also Jim Clyburn although he'll remain as takes a step back as well. So it'll be almost a clean slate for a leadership. What does that mean for leadership of the caucus, particularly as it moves from majority to minority status? Yeah, of course. I mean, look, each Congress, the caucus changes. It just becomes more universally maybe progressive, more middle of the road, more new dam, more, like every caucus is different. So with this new leader, Jeffries and whip Clark and caucus chair Aguilar, I got to get used to it. Look, they're going to be dealing with a caucus that is only four or 5 seats away from the majority. They're going to be expected to be united. They're going to be expected to have their voices heard with the new with the new leadership. And it's going to be some I'm sure some give and take. Let's just say within the caucus to almost two to see where this new leadership is and how far they're willing to go and how far are they willing to push back. But look, everybody's looking at 2024, frankly. Democrats doing so much better. So the number one goal here is to do no harm, make sure that you fund the government, make sure that you have the deal with the debt limit so the government doesn't default on its obligations. Make sure you do what needs to get done. But keep an eye on the prize, which is 5 seats and the majority in 2024. Speaker Pelosi from the outset at least was extraordinarily effective. It sort of keeping everyone more or less inside the tent because she had a pretty wide range of views in her caucus at any given time, particularly with the more progressive somebody will call it the squad coming in. Well, Hakeem Jeffries be able to keep everybody together because there's a tendency for that to splinter, is there not? Well, look, I mean, I fully believe that he will. And the reason is that I think the difference that sometimes gets missed between Republicans and Democrats, whether the more progressive side of the democratic party or the more conservative freedom caucus type of the Republican Party is at the end of the day, Democrats come home to vote. On something that maybe 30%, they support, but it has 30%, right? They're not willing to not pass the infrastructure Bill or a reconciliation bill that doesn't go far enough. Because they believe in the role of good legislation. So that's always a positive for Democrats. But look, did this come in Congress, it's going to be Republicans are going to be control of the House. They're going to attempt to pass legislation. That gives you is a priority for them. That makes it very easy for Democrats to remain united. And vote in opposition. So I think the tests are going to be on whether there's an agreement on debt limit, for example. When is that going to entail? If you don't deal with it during the lame duck. And how many votes can Democrats deliver and so on? But, you know, just from experience, I think they'll remain united for the most part. And yes, there will be some inside the fights. There's no question about that, but this is part of the caucus. But if nothing gets done in this Congress will that be a success for the Democrats because it will prevent the Republicans from having successes? Well, it depends on what the definition of gets done is. Yeah, well, look, if you're going to be stopped for legislation that you are completely opposed to, yes, that's a success. But if you're going to be working on some bipartisan bills, for example, in the healthcare space, in the mental health space, dealing with the opioid crisis, things along those nature, yeah, there is bipartisan support for those kinds of bills. Right? But the question is will Republicans spend their time doing that or they spend time on legislation that's not going to go anywhere? Nancy Pelosi is no longer going to be Speaker of the House or even in the leadership of the democratic Congress. She will have a seat, however, in the House of Representatives, representing her old district out in San Francisco. What role will she play as maybe senior adviser conciliatory? I think she's going to play the role that if she's going to be asked for advice she will absolutely present it. I'm sure members are going to go to her and ask her to travel for them. Perhaps continue her fundraising, but I read that she's going to be focused on looking at her papers that she's collected through the years. Talking to the historians at the Library of Congress and things along those along those lines. But look, what could be better than to have the speaker leader Hoyer and whip Clyburn right there in case you need some assistance. A little bit of an intellectual capital there, I'd

Tyra majors, come on news, a developing story that could have major implications for the U.S. economy more than 100,000 railroad workers are threatening to go on strike. ABC's Derek dentist reports on what's at stake, and who's trying to intervene.

The deadline for a deal, 1201 a.m. Friday. Some long distance Amtrak service could be suspended as early as today. Obviously a railroad strike at this point in time would be extraordinarily detrimental to our economy and to the American people. And we want to avoid that. Congressman steny Hoyer, among several lawmakers working to avert a strike over worker pay healthcare and other issues, there was a tentative deal which would have delivered workers a 24% raise, but two union holdouts released a statement accusing the railroads of using shippers, consumers, and the supply chain of our nation as pawns in an effort to get our unions to cave into their contract demands and calling it corporate terrorism. President Biden said to be in direct talks to avoid a strike, which could mean ordering workers to stay on the job. The president has certain authorities that he can exercise the Congress that can also pass legislation.

He's the CEO of Daniel defense, which made the gun used by the gunman and Yuval Texas to kill children and teachers. How many more American children need to die before your company will stop selling assault weapons to civilians and children going from a belief that these murders are local problems. That was kind of the tenor of this hearing, the gun executives say that companies and law abiding citizens should not be penalized for the crimes of a few, but Democrats on the committee say that these companies are making a lot of money selling AR-15 style weapons. House Democrats have been talking a lot about resurrecting the assault weapons ban. Where is that? Right now it is stopped, steny Hoyer, the House majority leader, said it will not be brought up this week.

The Preposterous Bipartisan Plan of Sending $40 Billion to Ukraine

"But I want to start with the story that is now kind of developed over the last weekend, which is why our leaders are trying to send another $40 billion to Ukraine. Now, this is something that we deserve answers to for very obvious reasons, not just because we don't know what success looks like in Ukraine. No one has actually told us that. They say, well, you know, it's to help zelensky and his government fight against Russia, okay? Well, where exactly are those $40 billion going to be deployed? And why is that the urgent need or why is that the urgent project of the federal government? Now, this passed through the House of Representatives with near unanimous consent, the Republicans had some opposition, but very little. It is a bipartisan agreement that we should continue to meddle further and deep into the affairs of other countries. So $40 billion, even though Joe Biden only asked for 33 billion dollars, which will further antagonize Russia and get us closer to a war. In fact, steny Hoyer said, we're in a war last week, said it very clearly and plainly that we are in a war. He said, in a time of war, why are we attacking Joe Biden? And so while our western inheritance is alarmingly vanishing in front of us, we have to be lectured by our leaders why we have to go spend and send $40 billion to a far off and distant

Democrats Come to Grips With Looming Election Reform Defeat

"There's a really interesting new snippet from Politico. They do a daily deal called playbook, most of it is garbage to be honest. It's kind of gossip. It is the closest thing that has been created in D.C. to kind of page 6 of politics, not to say that it's poorly sourced, but it's kind of gossipy. It's one off sources and people read it like that, but this one was super interesting. It says this that, and this actually cites a New York Times article from Katie edmondson. That's a good Swedish name. With the latest state of play and Sarah faris and Marie Marianne Levine and Nancy vu. My goodness, a lot of authors of that article. Democrats are starting to come to grips with the quote looming election reform defeat and quote grapple openly grappling. With what to tell their voters when they come up short. Frontline House Democrats eager to boost their prospects in November are urging their party leadership to break up build back better into a series of votes on popular planks. Even if that means giving up one grand Bill, even if those bills have no shot of becoming law. But Washington posts Mariana Sotomayor reports that leadership has been cool to this idea so far. While some front liners want to focus more on selling the infrastructure law and other accomplishments, steny Hoyer says, quote, the tension was surfaced in a meeting earlier this month. And the second highest ranking member of their caucus. Susan wild from Pennsylvania says I don't care. Telling Hoyer that House Democrats should spend the year sending bills to the Senate with the hope of bipartisan deals that could be reached on issues important to a broad range of voters.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from House committees

"News. Last night, House Republican leadership met for hours trying to decide what to do about controversial GOP congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the end, the deeply divided house voted 230 to 1 99 to strip her of her committee seats over incendiary remarks she made before being elected in November. Before the vote, Congressman Greene spoke to her colleagues saying it all started after President Trump was elected. She certainly supported him. But she didn't like what she heard about Russian collusion. These things bothered me deeply. And I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I Started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something and this is at the end of 2017 called Q it on Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news at night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. Ask questions about it, and then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018. Because I was upset about things and didn't trust the government. Really? Because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about And I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is, though, is I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret. Because if it weren't for the face, book post and comments that I liked and 2018, I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong. Because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of And that's what my district elected me for. So in 20 later in 2018. When I started finding Miss information lies things that were not true in these. Q and on post, I stopped believing it. After Congressman Greene spoke Majority leader Steny Hoyer reference the historic nature of this vote. It was pretty historic when you think about what they did last night, where 11 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to kick her off of those committees. I've had the great honor of serving this body for 40 years. And in that time I have never encountered a situation like the one before us. Now we remember has made such vile and hurtful statements engaged in harassment of colleagues. Expressed support. Political violence. To do nothing. Would be an abdication of our moral responsibility to our colleagues to the house to our values to the truth and to our country. I've heard some condemnation from across the aisle of the contents. Representative Green statements. Some have condemned the white supremacist an anti Semitic things, she said, and posted online, some of condemned the falsehood she shared about 9 11. And the horrific school shootings. But I've heard little from Republicans about the horrific statements made by their colleague making threats of violence against Democratic elected officials. And her threatening conduct towards represented Bush and others. Indeed, Mr Speaker, there seems to be much silence when it comes to her incitement of political violence. Short while ago Representive Green came to this Florida defender indefensible conduct. I heard no apology. She claimed that we are here today only because of something she wrote online before she ever ran for Congress. And if one's moral slate is wiped claim when one becomes a candidate for office Regardless, the conduct we are judging today continued to occur even after represented Green became a candidate and even after she was elected, there is no doubt that if somebody came to the Congress, and it said before they came to gun Congress Am for violent revolution against the government of the United States of America, that your party Would say That's not somebody we want to be associated with. That's not what she said. I do not assert that What should we do Less? Then you did for Steve King for far less toxic language. Let us not do nothing. Let us do the right thing.

House panel weighs resolution to remove Greene from committees

"Snapshot of the divided Republican Party. Just look at what's happening today In the House of Representatives, GOP leaders are weighing fates of two very different members of the party. One is Liz Cheney, the number three Republican in the House who voted last month to impeach then President Donald Trump. The other is freshman Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Trump loyalist known for spouting conspiracy theories and bigoted comments. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez and Claudia House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has supported Chani. But he's also said he has concerns about her impeachment vote. Trump allies like Florida Congressman Matt Gates even went to Wyoming to urge her constituents to vote her out of office. And here's another critic, Ohio representative Jim Jordan. When you're the conference chair, and you're the person who speaks for the conference, and you take a position that 96 to the conference, disagreed with and you do that ahead of time. She didn't She didn't just go voter conscious. On the day of the vote. She spoke ahead of time. 36 hours put out a statement in the sharpest possible terms. That's a concern. So Claudia is Liz Cheney in real danger here that remains to be seen. Today's GOP conference meeting later today on Capitol Hill will be a real signal there on where the party and Cheney go from here. This is all emblematic of this. These widening divisions were seeing in the party right now former President Trump left a vacuum of power as well as a dye identity crisis. For the GOP, a Republican strategist mention to me that with Trump, the populist wing of the party is swallowed up the establishment wing of the party time and time again, and we're seeing that play out in real time right now. This is the Republicans lost the house, the Senate, the White House under his man and under his administration, So the party is in the midst of this civil war If you will, and these members who remain fierce Trump loyalists are targeting Cheney. At one end well establishment Republicans are supporting Cheney at the other. Sure and change. The daughter of a former vice president represents the establishment in many of the populist side would probably mean embodied by Marjorie Taylor, Greene and House Democrats. Claudia want to strip her of her committee assignments, which would be a pretty severe rebuke and reminds me that House Republicans did agree a couple years ago to strip Steve Steve King of his committee assignments after he had publicly questioned why white supremacy is offensive. And then he lost his next primary, and that is out of office now. So is there a parallel here? Yes, In some ways there are a Democratic leadership aide told me this morning that House Majority leader Steny Hoyer told his caucus. That McCarthy needs to repeat the same action he took with King, which is move green off all of her committees, and Hoyer spoke to McCarthy this morning after that phone call with his caucus.

So in the moments we have left how many Republicans seem willing to convict at this point We saw five GOP senators break with her colleagues in a vote to say the trial is constitutional. That's a clue to what we could see in terms of the votes to convict Trump. There are some who left the door open that could join that group, but it looks like it will be a minority of Senate GOP members.

Washington, DC Statehood Bill Introduced By Senate Democrats

"Now you know this has been on the wish list of democrats for quite some time along with a promoting of puerto rico to statehood as well. Now that's compensation for a different time. But you had senator tom carper. He's democrat out of delaware leading over three dozen of his democrat colleagues to introduce companion bill for washington dc statehood gesture on tuesday. Now remember a similar. Bill passed the house last year. Now will face well pretty much. A democrat controlled senate to determine if dc will become the fifty first state but is that even possible. Well i found this piece. I pulled this back in early january out of the washington post. And it's pretty indepth piece about dc statehood. Bottom line is these. Dc statehood still faces a number of high hurdles not only in the narrowly divided senate but yes in public opinion as well. Think about this. A two thousand nine thousand nine gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of us opposed dc statehood. So why is in dc already a state. well we need to look at the constitution washington. Dc's founding is enshrined in the constitution which provides that the district not exceeding the constitution. Not exceeding ten miles. Square would become the seat of the government of the united states now for a brief period of time after the city's creation back in seventeen ninety residents -joyed voting rights and were allowed to cast ballots as residents of maryland or virginia but those rights ended shortly after congress moved into town and the new capital in eighteen hundred and pass the district of columbia organic act of eighteen. O one the act stripped dc residents of their rights to vote in all federal elections including for president and gave congress oversight of the city. Have you ever seen a dc washing a plate license plate. You know what it says you know with. The slogan is taxation without representation. Now the district was not afforded presidential electors until the passage of the twenty-third amendment. Back in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty one. Its residents didn't get a non voting delegates in the house until nineteen seventy so begs the question. How can congress change this well. Those opposed to making dc estate have argued that statehood for dc can't happen without a constitutional amendment. They say that the founders intended the entire district to serve as the seat of federal government not as state but legislation put forth by non voting delegate. Eleanor holmes norton every year since nineteen ninety-one would not eliminate the seat of government that the constitution calls for in stead her bill which shrink the national capital to a small complex of federal buildings while allowing the rest of the district to become a state proponents of statehood for their part argue that this plan preserves federal enclave. Whose only requirement is that. It can't exceed ten square miles and escapes the need for a constitutional amendment. Nothing simple as that outstanding questions remain over. What would happen to the three electoral college votes. Currently afforded to the district when it becomes a smaller that role enclave. And some have wondered whether the twenty-third amendment would have to be repealed. So that the few residents of the federal enclave namely we're talking about those residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue don't retain them so what needs to happen for dc to become state. Well the bill to make these estate obviously has enough supports in the house to pass again and jordi leader steny hoyer pledged to bring it to vote with backing from speaker. Nancy pelosi by your indeed even though the senate is pretty evenly split. Well let's just say it's a tough road to hoe in the senate democrats occupy half the seats in that chambers. Thanks to the victories of ossoff and wore knock In georgia both of whom support would no surprise there. And then you've got vice president. Kamala harris in this fifty fifty split in the senate able to cast the tie breaking boat and she liked biden supports

Presented moments ago by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steny Hoyer on behalf of both House Republicans and Democrats. Now former president Trump telling supporters earlier today he'll be back in some form. He gave a farewell address a joint base Andrews before heading to Florida, with his family also wishing the new administration great success. And luck. Pope Francis sending a letter to the new president offering an abundance of blessings and prayers of what he calls a time of grave crises facing the human family. America is listening to Fox News.

And now we're hearing from Steny Hoyer, who is the House majority leader, the number two Democrat Steny Hoyer of Maryland. On behalf of the Joint Congressional Committee on the inaugural ceremonies. I to him. Proud. More than that. I'm ecstatic. To present the two of you this picture. No. Testament to technology. A testament to history. President in your speech, you talked about faith. Talked about tribulations, but you talked about victory. The Johnson brothers wrote a great him. You know it. Well, Mr President. Today we have a new day. That him came out of faith. Out of deep trouble. Into hope. They said facing the rising sun of our New day, begun let us march on. Victories won It's what your speech was about. That's why we are so proud. Ready to march. With you, President Biden. Not blessed. That was House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, the number two Democrat in the House, presenting gifts to the binds their photographs of the inauguration swearing in. Earlier, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi presented the flags that were flown at the very moment. That President Biden was was sworn in and quoting lines from lift every voice. It's often called the black national anthem of the Negro national anthem, quoting them by way of Welcome to the new president, Rachel Just another moment to reflect on the warm remarks coming from not just Kevin McCarthy, House majority leader, former House majority leader and also former Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, calling Joe Biden Kamila Harris, son and daughter off the Senate. I mean, the moment just stands in such Sharp contrast to the debate the questions about the legitimacy of the election that have racked this country for the last couple of weeks. This is clearly An effort at least at the top of the congressional leadership. To turn the page of. Despite all the damage that has been done in this moment, at least they're trying to move forward in a pledge of unity will see that is going to be put to the test. Very soon. I want to bring in NPR's Joel Rose because Joel President Biden is wasting no time. Hey, is intending to move to the Oval Office later today. And at that point, the Biden Harris administration wants this is going to sign something. They want to send an immigration bill to Congress later today. What's in it right? Well, this immigration bill is very ambitious, and I think that the fact that they're sending it up to the hill on day one is significant. You know, with so much happening in the country with covert and political extremism, and so many other urgent matters. There was some question about whether immigration was going to be a top priority right off the bat. And the answer to that seems to be yes, Immigrant advocates are over the moon with this bill. They're calling it the most progressive legalization bill in history. Keep in mind. They've been fighting the Trump Administration for years, taking them to court trying to block Trump's immigration crackdown. S o the contrast You're really could not be any sharper the way these two presidents President Trump President Biden. The way they talk about immigrants marks a shift doesn't not for sure. I mean, President Trump talked, frequently talked about immigrants. As a burden and a threat to Native American native born Americans. President Biden seemed to allude to that of it in his speech today, when he said that quote, racism, native ism, fear and demonization of long torn us apart. When Biden and Harris talked about immigration. By contrast, they talk about restoring humanity to the system and treating immigrants as essential workers, valued community members. And now this bill, they're proposing to roll back a lot of road blocks and open some new legal pathways to citizenship. So what happens to this? Because if I'm remembering correctly, Senator Josh Holly very recently just kind of delayed the confirmation hearing for the incoming secretary of Homeland security over the Biden administration's immigration bill. I mean, this thing is is fraught from the get go. It is indeed I mean, this is it's an ambitious bill. The headline is that it would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants. It could be even faster for some immigrant it's eight years for most undocumented immigrants, but it could be even quicker for people who have Dhaka. For example, this is the Children who were brought to the U. S illegally as Children. Um, so yeah, and it's going to face major headwinds on Capitol Hill. No question. I mean, you've heard from Josh Holly and other lawmakers who rejected this bill right out of the gate as quote mass amnesty. Which they fear will only encourage more illegal immigration. So yeah, it's going to be interesting to see if Democrats can confined any Republicans to sign on, particularly in the Senate. Where they can't get this done without some help. Here's Joel Rose for a stroll. Thanks. We appreciate it. Hey, you're welcome. Let's go back to NPR's Ron Elving. Ron talk a bit more about these ambitious agenda that President Biden has set for himself, not just in the first years, but in really the first week. What is your sense of how Realistic that is or what are some of the challenges that he's going to face in trying to advance this agenda. It's not realistic. There's no way it's realistic, but it is theater gender that is set for him. It is not necessarily just what he wants to do. It's what is being cried out for by the cove it of course. By the economic ramifications of the cove it and buy all this other pandemic that we're suffering from. And I mean not only white supremacists and other extremists, but a more general sense of pandemic over misinformation, disinformation and people's distrust off objectivity fact. Those. They're enormous challenges that he's going to have to take on whether he thinks he can prioritize among them or not. He's more or less got to take them on all at once, and the lots going to depend on how many of the Republicans want to continue the war we saw two weeks ago. If they want to go with Josh Holly and Ted Cruz, or whether they want to follow what appears to be Mitch McConnell's preference, which is seek some way to be at the table and be part of the problem solving that Biden is going to try to bring forward very briefly, Ron, What is your sense of that question? It does appear that the Republican Party has kind of two different factions at this point. At least there is the sort of the faction that wants to return to traditional governs. I think vice president Pence, though deeply conservative seems to represent that as evidence of his willingness to appear at the inauguration, And then there were the Of course. The people who either refuse to cover refused to even acknowledge that a legitimate election took place. What's your sense of how the Republican Party Shakes out on that question.
