"We've talked so much already in this conversation about your healthcare experience as being one of the reasons why you wanted to go into and why you've stayed in public service. And here we are now, more than two years in to COVID-19. And I wonder if you could just share what you've been working on that relates to the pandemic, what would you like people to know about what you're working on? Let me mention a few. I want to just put a bookmark on one. I think very proud achievement when I was in the house on healthcare. Very much informed by my family story and so many others when I served on one of the committees that put together elements of the Affordable Care Act. I sponsored the amendment that allows young people to stay on their parents health insurance until they're 26. And I knew that that was the most uninsured age group age range. There's all sorts of other indicators of how likely you are to be uninsured relating to race relating to income, et cetera. But if you look at just age demographics, high school to mid 20s, people tend to be uninsured. And that changed overnight. Thanks to you. Yeah, but I was so proud of that. And it was so anti climactic. It happened at 2 a.m.. We finally had the votes on the committee to get it through. Did you call anyone at 2 a.m.? Did you call like a friend or family member? You're like, who do I call to celebrate? It's 2 a.m.. Henry waxman was chair of the committee and I was like, I'm ready to give my speech about my amendment. You're not giving a speech on your amendment. It's in the manager's amendment or voting on it. We're getting it out. We've got to do this. That was the magic moment. So anti climactic, but I just remember years later, especially when I'm visiting college campuses. I would say raise your hand if you're on your parents health insurance. And almost every hand would go up. And that made up for all the anti climactic nature of what was happening in the committee room at 2 a.m.. This was like, oh my God. So today, Wisconsin, sadly, is one of those states that has never expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. And so I'm joining with our two new Georgia senators who also represent a state that has never expanded Medicaid to try to create a direct federal program in order to allow those very low income individuals to have the sort of comprehensive insurance benefits you would have if you lived in a state that had expanded Medicaid. And that is pandemic related, but it would outlast the pandemic in terms of its importance. We've always had health disparities based on a number of different factors as I just mentioned, but they were just brought to everybody's attention during the pandemic in very visible and powerful ways. And I think that we can't let this moment of recognition pass without addressing it in a robust way. That would be one example, but I'll tell you, I'm still working on a lot of healthcare related issues. Well, because there's just always so much more to do. Yes. I do want to ask, especially because you're a math major. If there is one statistic about women in politics, that either really continues to inspire you directly or maybe enrages you and then inspires you through that anger to try to ensure that there are more women in more positions of power to do more good for more people in more places across our country. There's a lot, but let me you said one. Well, it can be more than one. Right now, I'm thinking a lot about the Supreme Court and I believe that there have been a 115 justices since the beginning of the Supreme Court. And 5 of those have been women. 0% have been black women. And I'm both angered and frustrated by that, but also inspired that it might change and it might change very soon. Yes. And I have been aghast at the volume of rhetoric emerging from people. That it somehow isn't important to actually have a black woman justice on the Supreme Court. When clearly it is, and there are certainly many, many, many black women who are incredibly qualified to sit on that bench. I go back to that thought of nobody checks their life experience at the door when they enter a room, like it was a coat check here. My life experience stays out there, then I walk into the room, it's always with us. And it informs our approach to all the things we do in our work. And it's why it's so important that we have a much more reflective set of life experiences and greater diversity in all of our governmental institutions as well as that governmental institutions for that matter. You have so often been the first in so many ways, a local state national level, what do you think we need to do to ensure that the first and anyway is not the only? I think that's gradually happening. One might be the only for a while, but hopefully that time is what is it Moore's Law and computing, right? The half life of that is getting shorter and shorter. So I was only in the Senate for 6 years before there were two. And so who knows what happens next. But if you don't try it, it never happens. When you try it and you succeed, there's one, and then once that glass ceiling is broken, we make change. We make change. And hopefully then we preserve the change. That's right. And don't get complacent about the progress. And don't mistake progress for success. Senator, thank you so much for everything, including your time today. Thank you so much. This has been a pure delight speaking with you. You can keep up with senator Baldwin on Twitter at Tammy Baldwin or on Instagram at senator Baldwin..

"When you were elected to Congress from Wisconsin in 1988, you were the first woman to be a representative from the whole state of Wisconsin. Yeah, earlier that year we had celebrated the state's susques Centennial. Try that 5 times fast. Okay, I remember when we celebrated Arkansas with Centennial when I was a little girl. And I actually remember repeating the word over and over and over again until I could finally pronounce it correctly. That's right. So we had statehood in 1848. And I ran for the House seat in 1998. The year of Wisconsin's sesquicentennial. I remember a couple of things vividly about that juxtaposition. It took us a 150 years to elect our first woman to Congress. But I also remember attending a celebratory event on the day of our Centennial. At the old territorial capital, which is not in Madison. And we were asked to come in period costume. Oh, what did you dress up? Well, there would not have been any women. And the state legislature convened in 1848. But I remember doing a radio interview from the area and saying you'll have to wait while I remove my bonnet. That was a first for radio. And did you feel any additional pressure either in that race or when you got to Congress because you were now the first? That's interesting. You know, I've been a first in several areas of the first out LGBTQ member of the Senate and certainly in terms of the house. That was the first non incumbent out person to get elected. Everyone else who had been out in the house before had come out in office. You know, until it's done, people hasn't been done. Yeah. Right. It's never been done. It's never been done. And it can be done. And so I remember the pressure of that. There's a lot of well meaning friends who said, I don't know if the voters are ready. We really need to see in my house seat it was a pickup from a moderate Republican who had retired. You know, might have not been the first choice of those who were recruiting candidates. But yet we showed it could be done. I think the other thing both as a woman and as a member of the LGBTQ community is the way you interact with the media. So even when I was running for the state legislature, which was 1992, the year of the woman in politics, do you remember, I definitely remember? People would ask me, what is your woman's agenda? What is your gay agenda? And I would quickly remind folks that I was running to represent everybody in the district that I would represent. And that I had all people's concerns and challenges in my mind. And that it's important to elect women when we bring our life experiences with us to the job and it informs what we do. But I am running for the opportunity to represent everyone and want to speak to the top issues of concern, including healthcare, which has always been a top issue of concern among my constituency. And I kept getting asked over and over again and what I realized finally that was a little bit empowering is at least at the local level. You have the same reporters from the local media covering the race from the beginning to the end. And I would have the opportunity to say, you know, you can write, you know, can a woman win can an LGBT person win, but you only get to read it once. It's newsworthy, but you can't write it every time you're covering my candidacy and the other candidates in the race. That was a challenge in all my races. And do you think that challenge has gotten better or worse for you and other women and out LGBTQ candidates who are running for public office? I'm a numbers person as a math major as the numbers grow. It becomes less and less of an issue. Sometimes you try and you don't succeed, sometimes you try again and you do, but the more and more people can look and see somebody like themselves, the more and more of those barriers come down. So no one can say after an election and reelection to the U.S. Senate where I won my reelection race with just shy of 11 percentage points in Wisconsin that doesn't decide any races with more than one. One percentage point, it seems. No one can say it can't be done, right? It's been done twice. Yes, wow. And I do wonder, though, for young people in the LGBTQ community who have lived through, you know, not just watch, but live through the last handful of years. In which they're often has been quite pointed and ugly rhetoric about women and about members of the LGBTQ community, including from the last administration, kind of amplified from The White House originating sometimes from The White House. How have the conversations, I know you must have had with young people thinking about running for office changed. Well, I think that there was a view during the years prior to the Trump administration. A view and a reality that a lot of progress had been made. Both through administrative actions and through passage of laws. And I think I find among women I know and among members of the LGBTQ community that we can't take that progress for granted. And we can't take progress as victory. And so as hard as those years have been, those Trump years and the legacy of what's been stirred up. I think for some, it has shown that it's even more important than ever to get out there and defend the progress that has been made and seek to make more. And that's been inspiring. And the honor that I have to be able to it's often referred to as symbolism, but it is so important for a young person to be able to look and say, I didn't think I might be able to achieve my goals or even should them. And this gives me hope that I can. And when you hear somebody come back to you with that story, boy, it's an amazing, amazing opportunity. It sounds like you're optimistic even after the last years in which gender and race and religion and sex identity and so much else was often weaponized by the right, arguably a backlash to the progress that had been made that young people are still stepping forward and running for county boards and state legislatures and school boards as well as to be your colleague in Washington. It is happening and that's very inspiring, but I will also say, as hopeful a person as I am, I share in so many people's fears and concerns about where we are as a nation right now. And.

"Cerebral and thank you for your time today. I'm really excited for our conversation about women in public service and you're someone I've just so long admired and so thankful to have you in conversation today. It might just be a good place to start at the beginning and if you could share what drew you to public service and is this where you'd always imagined you would wind up. I'll start with the second question and the answer is no, but then I'll journey backwards and take you to how it did happen. I think there's sort of two major motivating factors for me. One was just a life experience. When I was 9, I had a very serious childhood illness. I was raised by my maternal grandparents and I had to be hospitalized. For your listeners, I would describe it as similar to spinal meningitis, but that wasn't the exact diagnosis. And so I was in the hospital and then fully recovered and my grandmother visited me every day and they would have never dreamed of burdening me as a child with their insurance or financial worries. But as family Laura goes, their family insurance didn't cover me because I wasn't a dependent. I was a grandchild, not a child. Legally. And then they weren't able to find insurance that would cover me after I was fully recovered. And so I spent a lot of my use without insurance until I was actually in college and could get into a group plan because I was viewed as uninsurable, actuaries would look at my serious illness in a long-term hospitalization and say, we don't want to touch her with a ten foot pole. And so that and then witnessing other healthcare struggles that other families had really created a passion for wanting to change that. I just felt what happened in our family situation was wrong and it needed to be changed. The other youthful experience for me was more exposing myself to the idea of elective office as a place where change could occur. And this sort of wrong could be righted. If you will. And so that was middle school student council. We believe it or not. So what role did you have on your middle school student council? I was on the student council and then the student government vice president. And he took on all these projects that made me realize as a very young person that we could make a difference, collectively and individually. So it's trite, but I'll give you a couple of examples. I think of the college expression for this is town gown issues, but we wondered how the neighbors of our middle school experienced being neighbors to a middle school. And so we surveyed them. And what did you find? Well, we found that the fact that there was no muffler on the industrial arts air exchanger really annoyed a woman whose house was adjacent to that. We had another person who had a corner lot and kids would cut the corner instead of sticking to the sidewalk and damage her tulips, et cetera. There was one area where houses backed up to a sidewalk that approached the school and someone the older middle schoolers would smoke during recess. And so what did you do? Which of these did you think merited your attention and what did you do to try to help your school? We fixed all of it. You fixed all of it. So we lobbied the school board to say, we need a muffler for this Eric's changer. We then found some fairly inexpensive knee high fencing to put at the corner. So you could still walk over it, but you'd have to be making a big effort to trample your tulips. A conscious choice to be a tulip destroyer. Yeah. And then we had a monitor who had a steep decrease in the smoking activity. Let's put it that way. But in any event, then we invited everybody in the neighborhood to come over for cookies and milk or something after school one day. And just sort of said, we're here and keep in communication. So that was one example. And then the other one are city Madison had a sister city relationship with Managua Nicaragua. And I think during my middle school years, there was a natural disaster. And so we raised money for a school to be able to replace damaged books and other things through a fundraising activity. And I remember getting thank you notes, in Spanish, from the students at the school, just expressing their appreciation that children so far away cared and did something. And it felt good and I never really occurred to me as a middle schooler that I could do this as a career. But what I kind of figured that out, it was just amazing. And yet, when you were in middle school Tammy, there weren't many women in visible elected offices. Not in Madison, but not in most places. Were you aware of that as a kid that you may want to have this career, but there weren't a lot of people that look like you. I think it was very aware of that, but also aware of some of those at least local glass ceilings being chattered. I remember one of the first, well, two of the first women to serve in the state legislature in my area were considered pioneers and boy, did they champion things that impacted women. So I was a little bit aware of that. And I also will add that I ended up after high school attending a women's college, Smith college in Northampton, Massachusetts, where that age, every leadership position on campus was held by a woman. And strange fact about me, but I was a double major in government and math. And at the time, nationally, 1% of math faculty were women. But at Smith college, 50% of the math faculty were women. Not a 100%, but 50%. And so I think some of those experiences helped increase.

"I'm Chelsea Clinton, and this season on in fact, we're celebrating women's history month. I'll be talking with trailblazing women across a variety of industries about their personal journeys. The progress women have made and how far we still have to go. Today it's my great honor to be discussing women in public service with someone who is accomplished many firsts in her career. Wisconsin senator Tammy Baldwin. It can be easy to forget how recently women were barely visible at the highest levels of our government. Just 30 years ago, 1992 was dubbed, quote, the year of the woman, for the record breaking number of women elected to Congress, and how many was that? 24 representatives out of 435. And four senators out of a hundred, which brought the total number of women in the Senate to 7. That was record breaking. Granted, we've made some progress since then. Women now make up 28% of the house and nearly 25% of the Senate. But that's a far cry from equal representation. Plus, 17 states have never had a woman senator, 19 have never had a woman governor, many congressional districts have never been represented by a woman. Many cities have never had a woman mayor, and out of the 45 people who've served as president, not a single one, has been a woman. Many voters still have a hard time imagining a woman in public office. And that's just one barrier women running for office space. There are also explicit and implicit sexist attacks, and is multiple studies have shown the media cover women candidates differently than their male counterparts. Something we've certainly seen in my family, and it's equally painful when I see it happen to anyone anywhere. And when in office, women historically have been excluded, sometimes officially, from the dinners, country clubs, and back rooms where their male counterparts broker and execute power. And yet, record numbers of women are running for office at every level. So, while there are many glass ceilings yet to be broken, I'm happy to say my guest today has shattered quite a few. When Tammy Baldwin was elected to the House in 1998, she became Wisconsin's first female member of Congress and the first openly LGBTQ person to run for and win a congressional seat. Then, in 2012, she became the state's first female senator and the first openly LGBTQ member of the Senate. She was reelected in 2018 with more than 55% of the vote. A rarity in a state used to raise her thin margins. Throughout her career, she's championed reforms in healthcare, including mental health, and infrastructure, manufacturing, and education, and she's proved little girls and little boys alike that women and members.

"Hard to fathom that. This is the first time that our community is now reflected in in federal statute and after we finished recording. The staff person said. I think you made a mistake. That it was congressman baldwin. I think he made a mistake congresswoman. I think it's the first time this president sign something into law. You know that mentions the lgbtq community note. It just happens to be the first time ever think how far we've come since then you know we okay then. We hate crimes with it. The repeal of don't ask don't tell and a number of executive orders which are statute but et cetera and then the court in marriage equality and now we have at least a part of the equality act enshrined in case law dealing with employment until all of those things such great strides and partly through legislation. Partly through court cases but it is a new world and that is pretty amazing to a witnessed in a short period of time. But we still allow it to go with all these strides again. You were one of eleven in the current congress. Has it caused you to after rethink your identity. Now that you're not the only queer woman there. no. I mean i can be. Maybe a wise elder among lesbians on. I'm kidding it is great to see. The numbers grow is a lot of people when when they learn about me going. They say of wisconsin really wisconsin. We would've thought the first out lesbian would be from california or from new york or from at least at least a coastal state right. You know what. What's what's with wisconsin. And we we do. Have a number of i by the way with regard to lgbtq history. You were the first state to pass a nondiscrimination law in housing employment education on public accommodations back in nineteen eighty two protecting people on the basis of sexual orientation it did not include gender identity and still to this day does not but it was signed into law by republican governor believe it or nineteen eighty two next state took seven years to do it but okay so enough about wisconsin..

"To get to yes because they wanna be able to say. I was on the right side of history. Whatever their reason. I been sort of meeting one on one with individuals. See if we can get close to that ten. I think you know if we could even get five. Frankly i think there'd be some momentum of okay. I i wouldn't be alone in supporting this. You know bring some others over the finish line now. Then there's the other prospect the other track is a number of bills that are being studied right now because of the filibuster and the sixty vote requirement and the question is are we. Are we going to confront that. I for one support. Getting rid of the filibuster. Getting rid of that. Sixty vote majority or creating reforms that don't allow the minority party to to prevent forward progress. So we will probably end up having that debate. Maybe sooner rather than later it might not necessarily be around the equality act. It may be something else that voting rights or the debt ceiling. Or who knows. But we're gonna get to it. You think this year in terms of the filibuster. I think will. I think we'll start seriously. Will have to so to my question about your optimism that the quality act will pass. Do you think it will pass in. President biden's first term in office. I wouldn't. I wouldn't describe myself as optimistic. I describe myself as hopeful and working really hard to get there well when it comes to these more. Recent advances marriage equality again but also more recently bostock v clayton county about. Lgbtq employment discrimination. I think that i perhaps naively would have looped these. In with the way that i thought about roe v wade that they were just quote unquote settled law and yet with this new restrictive law in texas and the subsequent declining by the supreme court to delay implementation in a worse. Seeing how fragile these things are pow worried. Are you and you think we should be that we may go backwards on these advances that do concern the lgbtq community. We always have to be vigilant. But i feel as though with regard to marriage equality that all of the predicted ways in which the sky would fall and people would be think of all the arguments we were. Hearing during the efforts to get marriage equality none of the doomsday situations that people talked about. Have come through. And that's why. I think it's probably under less threat than some of the other advances that we've seen. I mean not to keep talking about marriage equality as in. That's the only issue we care about. But using as an example you know barack obama ran for his first term being oppose marriage. Equality and now. Here's later it's unthinkable that any democratic politician wouldn't support it. And so i feel like that is what we've seen from the outside. But you of the unique experience of having worked in washington throughout this you know very quick change rear indicators that you saw in washington that there was this change on the horizon how interesting i mean. Look i remember. When i first came into the house of representatives there was not a single federal statute that referenced the community and i remember remember vividly coming back from the white house on the day that president obama signed the matthew. Shepard and james bird hate crimes prevention. Act and i was doing a little social media video with a staff member and so i said you know..

"We hate him but our constituents love him and like how to bridge that divide or are you saying it was a very similar thing back then about lgbtq issues. Yeah very much so and you know it always also gives me the excuse to encourage our community to be involved politically and speak out because the other centrally organized i'll tell you just working on the equality act the session when it was first introduced and had its hearing in the us senate the number of calls opposing it. Compared to the number of calls supporting it were incredibly lopsided in opposition to it. And i know that's not the reflection of the sentiment of by district through other means right with the you know whether it's polling or just knowing how far we've come in the state of wisconsin. We still have a ways to go but but yeah the calls to the office. Were disproportionately in opposition. When i was first out for saudi office i would go to a lot of straight groups and give. Lgbtq one civil rights wanna one. But whenever. I was hoping to. Lgbt hugh audiences. I was giving them legislative politics one on one. So it's like we got. We got a win these rights. Who gotta work to do that. And it was really interesting. Bifurcation of what. I was talking about in the different groups. And so even for you. Your constituents and wisconsin. You're saying we're calling your office at significantly higher numbers being opposed to the equality act. Yes i am saying that now. This is not. You've probably heard that you the the terms grassroots versus astroturf so astroturf is sort of synthetic support so the calls were clearly generated by somebody getting a postcard in the mail saying. Call your senator right now to tell them. Something horrible is going to happen if you pass this legislation. And that's what they were doing and because the things that were being said were so similar you knew there was something generating you know. There's some astroturf organizations that that actually call people up. Get get you on the phone jeffrey. Are you upset about how how high your prescription drug costs are whatever student data. Whatever i'm gonna patch you through to your congress person so that you can tell them that that's that you feel strongly any want them to pass or oppose x. right and so there's lots of sophisticated ways for generating these calls that aren't just the grass roots but we have to be up to responding to that we've mentioned the equality act a few times and just to be completely honest. I'm not optimistic that it will pass and the current senate or you. Well i'll tell you a couple of things one is right now. The rules of the senate provide that to pass substantive legislation like the equality act. We need sixty votes and we only have fifty democrats forty nine of which are signed onto the equality act so we'd need either all fifty democrats plus ten republicans or maybe eleven republicans in that. One democrat doesn't doesn't vote. Yes i don't know but that's the current rules. And that's what all of us has. Advocates are working to achieve. And i've been meeting one on one with republicans who have either a track record of having supported and in the past and might Look at a broader bill which is necessary because of the lack of protections in in the states or want to get to yes because they have a loved one they wanna protect or want.

"The only ones who had ever served before came out while they were in office so this was kind of. Can we do this from scratch type of question so there's a huge awareness of it but not necessarily something that came up in my debates with my perspective with my opponents to it was really interesting that the awareness was really high and that was for the first congressional election in the late nineties. You ran for yup. There's a script that politicians have when they acknowledged her husband's are wise. Maybe we'll we'll kiss their partner on the cheek. Then take the stage where you doing those things as well well. I was single at the time. I was running the state legislature so athlete but yes i certainly acknowledged when i was partnered. I certainly acknowledged support and in the context of introducing my whole family. I just wondered if like behind the scenes they were like.

You're not the only clear person and senate there's tuna senate nine hundred dollars dibs.

This actually was kind of different when i was in the house of representatives. One of the things that i really wanted to do was make myself available for conversations with colleagues of both parties to be able to get them to voting. Yes on the matthew. Shepard hate crunch prevention act to get them to a place where they could vote. Yes for back. Then it was the employment nondiscrimination act. Now it's the equality act and try to prevent passage in congress of an anti marriage. Bill that was floated or actually constitutional amendment. I think it well that was at the state level. Mostly but is what often sit down and talk about say the employment nondiscrimination act and it was really interesting because what i would find out. Oftentimes is that take them. All in my republican colleagues would say you know. I have a cousin or i have a son or whatever who's gay and and yet my district is so opposed to this and i'm getting so many letters etc and then sort of walked through. Well how how do i get them to yes. They must hair about their family member. Maybe they'd be encouraged to know that many of the big corporations in their district have already has done discrimination. Policies would have their back if they voted. Yes you know figure out but but yeah they would ask candid questions of me. Not what do gays think about this. But how can i explain this vote to my constituency. I just feel like that's a not dissimilar to how it's reported republicans feel behind closed doors about like the former president right..

"Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney Barrett, taking a grilling from senators on big issues during Day two of the confirmation hearings today. One issue that came up multiple times is an anti abortion rights newspaper ad. The judge Barrett signed in 2006. I'm a public official. And so while I was free to express my private views at that time, I don't feel like it is appropriate for me anymore because of the canons of conduct to express an affirmative you at this point and I. Meanwhile, Wisconsin senior senator singing Cockney barrettes praises the attitude of a judge someone who apply the law. As it is written, and she won't alter it. She's not going to be an activist judge to be justice and that that's on welcome, Senator Ron Johnson says he will vote to confirm Barrett if and win her nomination comes to a vote. Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin, though, says the entire process is still unjust. I believe the next president and the next Senate that's needed in January.

"Hairless arid. Okay. So I'm going to give you one guess for what we're going to lead off with today and it rhymes with Comma. Harris is it Kamla Harris? It's Kamla Harris Yeah perfect rhyme with Harris Okay so Ever. Since Joe Biden announced that he was going to pick all women. To be his running mate, all one, hundred, sixty, six, million, or so of US women were on tenterhooks waiting to see which woman would be the King of women and on Tuesday. Joe Biden announced that he has selected. California Senator Kamala Harris as I guess are is that how vice-presidents work? She's now are king. King. She's a Queen Yeah sure King of Women King King Queen Whatever both terms can be gender-neutral now. So her nomination for veep is boundary breaking. In a lot of cool ways. She is the first black woman and the first woman of Asian descent to be the vice presidential nominee for one of the two major parties in a presidential election, which is super exciting. She was raised by immigrant parents. She was raised largely by her mother raising her and her sister alone. She's also married to Jewish guy she's like a rainbow of the American experience and she was also a former DA and a g in California. Elissa despite the fact that you know there's a lot of celebration yesterday I. Think There's something very dangerous about pretending that are preferred political candidates are flawless and I think there's something disingenuous about hiding disappointment or or some trepidation about our preferred political. So let's Give it to me straight. How did you feel when you learned on Tuesday Joe Biden had selected Comma Harris to be his running mate so Aaron I think that you and I both would agree that there were no bad candidates that we heard in the last couple of days if the reporting was correct and it was largely down to Karen Bass Hysteria fave love her Susan Rice longtime. Pal of mine and Kamala Harris the we could not lose now was Susan my dear pal and was I because of my palace and because I believe she is ready to serve was a little excited. That might be Susan I was I'm not gonNA lie did I after talking to Karen Bass the last time think that I could be team bass. I did. So I'm down we need to. Win. Kamla is great. I mean. But I think that everyone is allowed to have their feelings and they should feel free to have their feelings as long as everyone understands that like fucking time to get up and get on I agree. Well, you know as you know because you got a text for me to this effect yesterday, I was driving through a part of Kansas where parents. Nobody needs to use a cell phone All thing I know I was it was like five hours of just totally dead service and we stopped at a gas station in a place called Goodland Kansas right off I seventy and at that moment, Josh had like a bar of service and he had a text. What do you think about Kamla and it was like oh? Okay. Well, it was. My first feeling was that I was really hoping for a more progressive candidate just because Carmela is a little bit more toward the center than my personal politics are and she is although she's somebody that I find really inspiring and I think she did a great job in a lot of ways as ag California and she's been a great senator. She's been a attack dog basically on the judiciary I was hoping for somebody. Who is a little bit more Bassey in their politics I really like Karen Bass I was a big fan of Tammy Duckworth also, I think that she's got an incredible future ahead of her, she was sort of a dark horse candidate Tammy Duckworth but I would have been just completely over the moon if it had been her but that being said and don't forget Tammy Baldwin I almost forgot tammy Baldwin Baldwin the Tampa. See we couldn't have gone.

It's been a real roller coaster ride for the last. Year or so everybody went in thinking that the liberals would get just pommelled and that America's social progress would get set back fifty years, and in some ways you not. Everything has been a win for sure I. Don't WanNa pretend that everything has been a win. There have been some surprising wins like last week on the day. That show came out the supreme. Supreme Court ruled that the trump's attempt to extinguish. DACA was unconstitutional. He didn't do it the right way so Daca.

Yep, but we still have one that's Kinda hanging over us like the sword of Damocles. And that is a. that's an abortion case out of Louisiana. Alyssa. What do you think is going to happen with the case? It might come down tomorrow. It might come down next week because the supreme, court loves to wait and save the big cases for the end. What do you think's GonNa Happen? Erin. I'd be lying if I said I knew if I even had an inkling that I think that Neil, gorsuch was going to SORTA. Come through or that. John Roberts we don't know like I. Guess My problem is I. Don't have the brain of a supreme. Court justice and I could never be one. Which is why I didn't go to law school.

Mean I try not to get excited because you know one hand. There's no words no way to get excited, but there's also being in a state of having my loins just constantly go ahead. Is a little exhausting I really want to. I. Really Want to live in a world were John Roberts can. Be The deciding vote and in and write an opinion. He admonishes the Fifth Circuit Court for even trying to step to him right by deliberately directly confronting Supreme Court ruling from two thousand sixteen. But in two thousand, Sixteen Roberts was on the side of keeping the trap block question in place. I. Don't know what's going to happen and I'M Just I just get it over with I. Just wanted to know I. Just want to tell us. It's suspense we don't need. Yeah Yeah I just WanNa read Sonia Sotomayor's either concurring opinion or fiery descent.

CDC: Backyard chickens to blame for Salmonella outbreak

"Real quickly speaking of, food fresh food there's a story. Today about an outbreak of salmonella. This has nothing. To do with the boat this backyard chickens Have been associated with an outbreak of. Salmonella in forty four states and there's different. Strains of it That have hit forty four states and it's all associated with, people who are keeping backyard chickens So what are they doing oh. I don't know I mean maybe they're smooching on their chickens or they're taking them in something I don't know Anyway so I put up a post today just letting. Folks know that There's a problem with salmonella and it almost entirely has to do with the type of, habitat you've got for your animals or the way you're. Handling your animals. And there's some concerns you need to be advised of you would swear I, just accused Donald Trump of being an agent of the. Kremlin by, saying this is why I chose not to get backyard chickens I said this. Is why by my exit the store and don't have backyard chickens Because I don't want to have to deal with this kind of problem you would swear I'm not even kidding this is the, the the reaction to my post on Facebook about backyard. Chickens from conservative. Backyard chicken aficionados it was his if I was some kind of determined never-trumper, who is out there accusing Trump of being an agent. Of Putin, or taking taking his his cues from the Kremlin let me pay Paul I don't want them in my yard I do, not care. If you have them in. Your yard but I'm just posing this on my social media to help you help, yourselves not get infected with a really gnarly foodborne born illness that's all everyone's like well if they ban backyard chickens there's nothing about a ban it's. Just a warning. From the CDC saying. Hey in forty four states this is become so popular this hobby has become so popular that, in forty. Four states now they're outbreaks of salmonella it is one hundred percent related to the, expansion of the interest in the hobby and the fact that people are not paying attention to. The proper risk protections When enthusiastically embracing this new hobby, I'm still going to keep buying my exit the store and I don't care Doesn't mean I want to. Take your. Chickens you keep your chickens and, I don't think Donald Trump is an agent of the Kremlin either all right I was cracking up I got to admit I was trolling my own Facebook people just a. Little bit Just to see folks would. Blow up and not. Bother to read the article and just think that somehow a ban is a foot You know read. The articles I don't actually post them for my health on my Facebook, page Vicki McKenna show, Facebook dot. Com slash. Vicki mechanics show there's, all kinds of really entertaining stuff from the light to the very. Very serious and very very heavy. All right so without further ado I had a chance to chat.
