Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Explains How Two Democratic Bills Are a Recipe for Instant Socialism in America

"With us is congresswoman. Marjorie taylor green. Who is calling for everyone to do what they can to try. And tell the senate not to raise the debt limit congresswoman. Are you there. Yes hi charlie. Thanks for having me on your show. You bet you sent out a tweet saying everyone needs to call the senate switchboard. Let's take a step back. Walk us through the significance of this and the latest when it comes to the fights happening in washington dc. Okay well just to break it down. Everyone needs to understand that the democrats are working very hard to pass to ells the infrastructure. Bill which is almost one point two trillion dollars and the budget which they had it at three point five trillion. Then they took it up to four point three trillion and that's when mansion and cinema and the senate said no. We will not vote for this. It's too much money. But here's what you all need to know about. Both of these bills them for structure bill is not about paving roads or building. Bridges it's really about socialism as a matter of fact almost about round six percent of the infrastructure bill only goads towards real infrastructure roads and bridges. The rest of it is full on socialism with big programs in even seven point. Five billion dollars that will build five hundred thousand electric vehicle charging stations all over the country because they want to force america on electric vehicles which will force us to be energy independent or energy dependent. I'm sorry on china and then the budget. The budget is even worse. The budget is full passage of the green new deal and more socialism. These will be programs will never be able to undo. It will fully wreck our economy and hurt americans in the future

"Senior adviser to joe biden. He's a guy named cedric. Richmond you may remember him because biden couldn't remember his name and you know in a very cringe-worthy moment referred to his black senior adviser as my boy or said the boy or my boy cedric richmond. Not a good look. So here's the same cedric richmond. Making this specious. This dishonest this unethical this outright outrageous lie that three point five trillion dollars isn't gonna cost anything. Listen to chris. Wallace has pushed back but at the end of the day chris. I think what's important for people to understand. Is that this piece of legislation zero. We're gonna pay for it all by raising taxes on the very wealthy embiid corporations versus seven. I gotta stop you there. It doesn't cause there whether it's three and a half trillion or two trillion it or one and a half trillion. Whatever it costs that amount of money now you can pay for it either by borrowing or you can pay for it by raising taxes on corporations and the wealthy but it doesn't cost era. Even chris wallace is say. Wait a minute what are you talking about. It cost zero later in the interview. He pushed back again again. I just wanna to press down on this. Because i can understand the argument. A lot of people say that your math is wrong and even that it won't add zero to the debt. You could make the argument if you pay for it. You add zero to the debt. But that doesn't mean that caused zero. I mean the fact that you're raising people's taxes is a cost. We're also reducing taxes in this piece of legislation. it's a fifty million. Americans are going to get a tax cut in this piece of legislation that matt pay for working families but net if it's a two trillion dollar spending plan net net cost two trillion dollars. Well not necessarily sure. And that's why we will make sure that all of the democrats are involved in how we shape it. But everyone's worried about not necessarily about.

House Democrats Propose New Tax Hikes to Pay for Their $3.5 Trillion Bill

"In congress are moving ahead with president biden spending plan. It includes up to three point. Five trillion dollars for new programs mostly aimed at helping lower income americans. They plan to finish work today on a long list of new tax increases to make that spending possible. Npr congressional correspondent kelsey. Snell has been looking into this story. Good morning kelsey. good morning. What are democrats proposing re taxes. So democrats say they can raise at least two trillion dollars in as much as three trillion dollars with this plan. You know the big ticket items are increases to the top corporate and individual rates. You know basically they're trying to roll back. The tax cuts republicans passed under president trump. In two thousand seventeen okay. Let's parse those two out. What would this mean for taxes on individuals on the individual side. Democrats promised voters that they'd undo taxes for the wealthy and this is really their moment to do that. They want to return the top tax rate to thirty nine point six for individuals. Earning over four hundred thousand dollars. They also want to increase the rate high income. People pay for selling things like stocks and other assets. It's called the capital gains rate. And they wanna make the top rate for that twenty five percent which is a pretty big hike and what would it mean for businesses. Their plan would increase the top corporate tax rate from twenty one percent to twenty six and a half percent. Now that is not a full reversal of the tax cuts. Republicans passed and it's lower than what biden proposed they also plan to include changes to the rules for pass through businesses. Now sometimes that includes doctors and lawyers but it basically means that someone reports business income on their individual taxes and they wanna make it harder for companies to avoid the new higher taxes. How are republicans responding to these proposals while republicans say that the bill will actually have some pretty harmful effects on the economy. Mostly by making the us an unattractive place to run a company and they say it would penalize companies. That would normally use the money. They'd have to pay in new taxes to reinvest in their

Democrats Release Details of Proposed Tax Increase

"We have a full listed that point of the tax hikes that the democrats are proposing. Well i hope so. But i don't think they actually ever do stuff though do they. I mean Something's gotta fun to not only three and a half trillion dollars spending bill but i think estimates have about five five and a half trillion. Hugh yesterday was two trillion dollars in tax hikes. That's not enough. but i'll those proposed tax hikes. Which do you think is most egregious doubling the death tax or getting rid of the pass through which help small businesses look. The pass through is disastrous. Getting rid of that is going to be absolutely disastrous. One of the primary reasons that we believe that we had such a successful economy under president. Trump is because of that we we let small businesses grow. We let them thrive and remember. It's two thirds of new job. Growth is in the hands of small businesses so when we kill small businesses killer economy. We kill we. We basically kill communities it it it. It can't it can't be done. We gotta stop it. That you know what i don't understand. Alfredo they want to return the state local and property tax exemption but they want to get rid of stepped up basis. So that means they're gonna give with one hand and take away with the other. It doesn't make a lick of sense. Do you think any of this makes a liquor. No not at all. I mean look at what the top rate For example in new york city for earner center. It's going to be over. Sixty one percent is basically where we're going to be given in taxes between federal and state is just absolutely ludicrous. not this makes sense And again i think you know you look at representative clyburn for example. What did he say. Let's go ahead and spend first and then we'll figure out how to pay later which basically means we'll just bark you borrowing this idea of modern monetary theory. It's gotta go that. Basically we can just keep borrowing to spend all these social programs

Manchin Backs as Little as $1 Trillion of Biden's $3.5 Trillion Plan

"It started off with a six trillion dollar price. Tag ben is lower to three point five trillion. Now there's reporting suggesting that. Senator joe manchin wants the total for the democrats reconciliation bill to drop as low as one to one point five trillion dollars though for what it's worth. Some people close to him say that his comfort zone is something closer to around two trillion. But here's the question. What exactly will the democrats top line number. Be the process of crafting. The bill will kick off in earnest today as the house ways and means committee. The education comedian labor committee began marking up their proposals and already there are tensions over the issues being voted on for example. We're told that the seven hundred sixty two billion dollars vision for education which includes more than four hundred fifty billion dollars for childcare at universal pre-k and hundreds of billions more for school infrastructure and free community. College won't likely make it to the white house intact. Likewise a battlefield limited resources is driving the fight over which healthcare proposals include pit into house against the senate and the white house. Now the dollar totally dictated by how much democrats can generate puts tax hikes and other revenue raisers. Which by the way is a huge area of contention itself. Democrats could find themselves with about one to two trillion dollars in revenue depending on how much they scaled back. The trump tax cuts. they'll also net a large chunk of change from the prescription drug overhaul though their sparring over details of that plan as well after the real fight will commence how to spend the money at feel like we're in like fight inception. There's a fight within a fight but then a fight anyway house speaker. Nancy pelosi acknowledged the coming battles over limited dollars. Where would you cut childcare. family medical. Leave universal pre-k both care right now. Most negotiations are taking place between house and senate leadership and the white house.

How America Lost Its Way in Afghanistan

"The disaster. In afghanistan is a grave blow to america's standing in the world and much of the blame for that lies squarely with joe biden if the propagandists of the taliban had scripted the collapse of america's twenty mission to reshape afghanistan. They could not have come up with more harrowing images as insurgents swept into kabul desperate afghans terrified about what the victorious zealots might do chased departing american cargo planes down the runway trying to clamber into the landing gear and inevitably falling to their deaths. The american backed government had surrendered without a fight. Something that american officials were insisting would not happen only days before afghans were left in such a horrifying bind that clinging to the wheels of a hurtling aircraft seemed their best option. America has spent two trillion dollars in afghanistan. More than two thousand american lives have been lost not to mention countless afghans and yet even if afghans are more prosperous now than when america invaded afghanistan is back to square one. The taliban control more of the country than they did when they lost power. They are better armed. Having seized the weapons. America showered on the afghan army. And they have now won the ultimate affirmation defeating a superpower. The insurgents have made a show of magnanimity pledging that they will not take revenge on those who worked for the toppled government and insisting that they will respect women's rights within their interpretation of islamic law but that interpretation kept most girls out of school and most women confined to their homes when the group was last in power in the nineteen ninety s brutal punishments.

Could the Disaster in Afghanistan Have Been Averted in 2001?

"Matter whether you were for or against the war in afghanistan. I think most observers agree that the way it's been brought to an end has been a disaster. The taliban is again in control of the country and in addition to political power. They've got their hands on. Us supplied military equipment including guns ammunition and combat aircraft. So we all agree. It's bad right now but did you know that was a good chance we could have maybe avoided all of this. That's because in december two thousand one. The taliban seemed to be on the verge of striking eight deal with the afghan government to surrender. This was at a time when the taliban itself said they were finished as a political force but donald rumsfeld the secretary of defense at the time rejected the idea and when asked about the possibility of such a deal said quote. The answer is no he wanted. An unconditional surrender. How did that work out just to be clear. No one is saying that afghantistan would have become piece floor. Violence-free only that we wouldn't have spent the next nineteen years fighting an unwinnable war more than twenty four hundred. Us service members were killed in afghanistan. So we're an estimated sixty six thousand afghan military and police and more than forty seven thousand afghan civilians over four hundred eight workers and more than seventy journalists all at a us price tag of two trillion dollars that the bush administration failed to end the war. Early on is one of the many gross mistakes that they made including allowing osama bin laden to escape afghanistan according to a senate report from two thousand nine bin laden was quote within our grasp in december two one but the administration let him slip through their hands quoting from the report the decisions that opened the door for his escape to pakistan allowed bin laden emergency potent symbolic figure who continues to attract a steady flow of money and inspired fanatics worldwide. The failure to finish the job represent a lost opportunity. That forever altered the course of the conflict in afghanistan and the future of international terrorism.

What Is Actually in the Infrastructure Bill?

"Let's talk about what's actually in the bill. It's two thousand seven hundred pages long. They read the whole bill. This infrastructure package is larger than the obama stimulus that almost every single one of these republicans said was too big so these republicans said obama's big spender. We don't like debts and deficits but then they go out of their way to go spend one point two trillion dollars by the way. That's you our children's and grandchildren's among this so let's what's in the bill. Let's go through five specifics. John salomon from just the news. Dot com has a great article on this. The bill includes a mandate for vehicle manufacturers to install drunk and impaired driving prevention technology as standard feature. Inside of the new vehicles might sound somewhat noncontroversial so basically the government can come in and turn off your car. if they think you're impaired. The legislation contains one hundred eighteen billion dollar bailout for the highway. Trust fund which is currently funded primarily through federal taxes on gas and diesel fuel. As the text of the bill does not specify a revenue source funds would just be transferred from the treasury treasury general fund to the highway trust fund. You do know that every single year as well we have infrastructure and transportation spending as part of the general fund of our budget senate. Republicans don't care about that senate. Republicans have decided to make buddha judge. The czar of a vehicle miles traveled tax. A pilot program will be created for a vehicle. Miles traveled tax which is a system for taxing drivers based on their annual vehicle. Mileage is hidden away in the bill. Section one three zero zero two titled the national motor vehicle per mile user fee. Pilot remember when pe- buddha judge flooded out that idea earlier this year during his confirmation process and republicans. Got very upset now again. I'm not an expert. But i do know that. North dakota has a fair amount of oil and natural gas. Do you think this will help oil.

"Here. In washington including president biden are hoping debate on a one point two trillion dollar infrastructure. Package could start as early as monday. Just before the august recess senate republicans blocked a procedural vote to start that debate this this week pushing for more time to hammer out details. You've got the usual talk of roads and bridges. Yes but broadband access is another key part of the legislation with the draft showing sixty five billion dollars.

Why this matters is kind of what technology used to try to fix the digital divide many democrats would like fiberoptic cable. Lines laid down there. This would be future-proof this would be good for decades but that would also mean if you put these benchmarks in wireless companies some cable. Companies satellite broadband.

If it continued over eight years to move forward those plans will need buy in from a broader group of lawmakers and the white house.

Donald Trump Didn't Have to Be Irrelevant

"Trump is irrelevant. He gives interviews that. Don't make headlines. He sends out statements that become the butt of jokes. sure he's got the era of congressional republicans but no member of the gop has the influence or the audience to be trump's messenger. Which makes him irrelevant. But this segment isn't meant to mock him. It's meant to mourn what actually could have been because donald trump didn't have to be irrelevant. Seventy four million americans voted for him in two thousand twenty like him or not. His voice matters to some people he could've spoke out in real honest ways on important issues without fear of polls and push back that guided so much of his value system in the white house. It is ironic that on the one year anniversary of trump wondering whether people could inject bleach into themselves to kill the corona virus. He told the new york post quote. I'm all in favor of the vaccine strongly. Strongly recommend it. Because it's a real life saver quote. Now he says this where was he. Months ago when the vaccine i came out while he was still president and his words could have mattered. It was even clear by his refusal to help distribute the vaccines. He wanted credit for pushing companies to develop vaccines but he didn't seem to care if they ever got into people's arms and new york and dc centric republicans. The main new york post audience. Really the people who need to hear this message. Could this be a stunt to make himself look better or any positive side effect that is just that of side effect trump could have pushed americans to get vaccinated sooner. Could've told americans that vaccines are safe. But he's so preoccupied with attacking. Lebron james and mitch mcconnell that he missed his moment to save lives now should know. Trump's message is a good one the vaccine is a lifesaver and maybe skeptics will take his advice. Which would be great for all of us. But it's likely too little too late because he's irrelevant and let's not just limit. The vaccine. trump could be relevant if he spoke to other issues affecting his base for structure. Biden's two point. Two trillion dollar infrastructure plan would benefit large swaths of trump's base. It would provide jobs to rural and suburban communities. It would repair critical infrastructure. It would expand broadband access and trump has good reason to support the biden plan because he actually pitched a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan just last year but that's just not trump. of course he's not advocating for anything that might give joe biden a win even if it helps his base because it doesn't help him so he condemns the plan and that's been trump's problem since he came down that infamous escalator at trump tower to declare his candidacy for president. Trump doesn't want to help others if it doesn't help him he doesn't push vaccines because many in his base are against them. He doesn't push it infrastructure plan because it's a democratic plant and he's still out going on fox to claim that he won the election and putin who's currently killing alexei navalny in prison is an okay guy so perhaps he should be irrelevant but has claimed political power is the paralysis that elected republicans have in breaking away from him against what the trump base is against. Even if it's not rooted in fact you can't be for policies that a democrat would support. You have to be cool with anti-democratic impulses like voter suppression. That's where the republican party is. Right now cova conspiracies. Defending the capital riot has overblown or committed by antifa. Blm thinking republican election officials in states that correctly. Certified the vote for joe. Biden are traders and frantically pushing legislation to make sure that never happens again but when this is what the party is about. How else could they possibly win

"A two trillion dollar financial package and should it pass it will be the third time this month the federal government has intervened to keep the US economy afloat we're going to talk to the latest developments on all these fronts over the next several minutes to do that I'm joined by NPR's I sure Roscoe who covers the White House and Pierce chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley and global health correspondent read Eisenman good to have all three of you here good to be here I felt like to start with you the White House and Senate Republicans have been trying for days to come up with something that would pass along with Democrats in tonight's coronavirus task force briefing the president said treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin sounded very optimistic that it would pass I'm what's everybody hoping that this package will do what they're hoping that this will boost the economy which is really struggling at the moment what what really happened this tonight is that trump really stood behind this deal he defended it he said he's ready to sign it immediately and trump he he acknowledged that there might be some provisions that were championed by Democrats and Republicans might not like like money going to help the Kennedy center but he said this is give and take and I think what what's really important is that trump kind of put his unequivocal support behind this bill which will make it difficult for Republicans to put up much opposition which makes it more likely to pass and to do what they hope it will do which is to help the economy well let's talk about what it might do Scott this is the biggest relief package in history and yet New York governor Andrew Cuomo says it's not enough for his state what impact might have in the Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is calling this emergency relief it is not a stimulus bill he said the goal is not to encourage people to go out and spend money or encourage other people to go to work on the contrary the federal government is asking people to stay close to home and telling them not to go to work if they can avoid it so this is all just an effort to keep the economy afloat long enough to get to the other side of this pandemic and it is really remarkable how far the ball has moved in less than two weeks two weeks ago the White House was questioning the need for any kind of aggressive fiscal action now you've got that opened the floodgates with two trillion dollars and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says if you count Rick Fleming by the federal reserve that number could actually be multiplied well I mean another thing has happened the last two weeks as record numbers of people filing for unemployment is this solution big enough for the size of the problem yeah we're gonna get initial claims for last week's unemployment tomorrow and it's going to be Graham forecasters say will likely see more than two million people filing for unemployment maybe a lot more so this is not going to solve that problem but it will provide more money for people who suddenly find themselves out I have worked get an extra six hundred dollars a week on top of what they would usually be eligible for it will extend those payments to four months instead of the usual three it will cover people who usually are not eligible for unemployment like gig workers and the self employed now there were a handful of Republican senators who objected to the way this is structured they're worried it will discourage people from going back to work but the treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin says they're trying to keep this simple we need to get this money into the American economy and American workers that's the in the importance of this in addition to the unemployment benefits there's also those direct payments we've talked about up to twelve hundred dollars per adult five hundred dollars for children and Muhsin says that money could be going out within three weeks of the bill's passage to shift to the science of this disease Marie governor Cuomo said today there's some indication of the social distancing measures in New York City has taken could be slowing the spread of the virus how might that affect the trajectory of the disease well to be Frank at best it means in several weeks the situation will go from horrific to merely horrible because yes China and most recently northern Italy have shown that drastic social distancing can slow down the number of new infections each day but the bigger the number of cases you already have the longer it takes to bring the numbers down also it takes a while to see the effect in hospitals because remember a lot of people in New York City have already contracted this virus is too late for them and so over the coming weeks they'll still be developing symptoms still be showing up at hospitals and finally this idea that with these extreme social distancing measures were flattening the curve of infections you know we've all heard that term it still means that people will continue to get infected over time just not all at once so just to be clear the goal here is to keep the number of people showing up in hospitals low enough that the health system can handle it exactly and for places that don't yet have outbreaks as big as new York's the extreme social distancing right now is a temporary measure meant to keep the number of Kobe nineteen cases low while officials ramp up hospital in testing capacity and then the hope is you could pivot to a phase two type strategy that requires less restrictions on movement is a strategy of testing all cases rapidly isolating people who've been in contact with them south Korea's had some success with that but you do need massive testing capacity and even though you know tonight trump repeated his his statement that the U. S. is now done more tests than South Korea when you take into account how many people how many more people live in the U. S. the U. S. is still way behind and so bottom line we're still weeks from being able to make that pivot to a phase two strategy New York is just the beginning cases are rising across the country right now now read the timeline that you're describing public health officials saying is necessary is so different from what president trump has been saying that he wants the country up and running by Easter he wants church pews full of people are you sure is there any indication that the administration is reconsidering that position not at the moment trump is still saying he would like things up and going by Easter but he did say tonight that he's not going to do anything rash or hastily he keeps saying that he thinks that some people may be able to go back to work in just make sure they're washing their hands and doing things like that here's some more what he had to say social distancing such an important phrase and we do it right now the more lives we can save and the sooner we can eventually get people back to work back to school and back to normal ultimately trump has not been the one shutting down schools and businesses that's been done by governors and and at the state level so it's not really clear how much he's going to be able to do even if he says everybody go back to work or some people go back to work and finally what about the supplying of ventilators and PP personal protective equipment the White House is still facing pressure from states some lawmakers over whether to use the defense production act to meet gaps in medical supplies New York says it needs thirty thousand ventilators where is the White House on that debate so trump is arguing that he hasn't had to use the law to force companies to do anything because just the threat of the law has been enough to get cooperation so he's saying that he's been able to get companies to work with them but states like New York or saying that the federal government is not doing enough they say states are having to compete with each other for goods and they want the government to step in and direct this process and even as the administration comes out of these briefings and they talk about all these numbers about ventilators and mass that they're sending out there are still reports to hospitals don't have enough so we're just not seeing it on the ground yet that is NPR's Rachel Roscoe Scott Horsley and read Eisenman thanks to all three of you thank you you're you're all right there has been lots to adjust to during this whole corona virus pandemic wouldn't you say ari absolutely for those of us working from home we've had to learn how to video conference for example so instead of your workmates looking into your cubicle or your office they get to see into your bedroom or your home offices or your living rooms so we are here with some remote meeting etiquette tips first avoid what one person on the service zoom did his computer camera was on but not much else not one stitch of clothing everybody has closed he didn't advance though there are less exposing mistakes to avoid in group tele chats some tips from experts now first we asked Frank why stop he's at our labs which produces tech for video conferences and he has this tip to be respectful to all the people that are going to be on the video call make sure that you're prepared in advance start a few minutes early to make sure your cameras working your speakers are working at the lighting is right and then you have the link ready to go so that you don't have to pay that ten minute meeting tax to figure out how to get on to the video call and make yourself present here's another tip from USA today columnist Steven Petro first up dress appropriately I learned this by making a mistake the other day I put on a shirt and a sweater but it left my gym shorts on and as I can't sit down in front of my laptop which was already on I could see and so could everyone else those beautiful gym shorts don't do that zoom also has some tips for example they write if it is a first meeting for the whole group introduce yourselves because you would do that in a face to face meeting when you also have a work appropriate background you probably don't want your dirty laundry or a centerfold on the wall I see zoom also says look into the camera when you're talking it's tempting to look at yourself but come on don't be vain it's rude and here's Steven Petro Dan with one more big common error to avoid finally if you need to go to the bathroom firebreak turn off the video turn off the audio because sound is louder than you think yes so don't be like this woman in an online meeting with her colleagues she decided to take a bathroom break and she forgot to turn off for camera that was pointed her way well what happened I saw nothing oh my god what happened nothing can go in this moment I'm glad we are audio only lesson business meetings are no place to do your business you're listening to All Things Considered on W.

It's a team effort. It's a team effort what and you know what I'm about to say. But what angers me more than? Anything? Is this? We were. Two hundred and thirty forty some years ago, we were given. The most unique. And most amazing. Experiment in freedom. That the world has ever know. And we've squandered it. We're losing. We've lost it.
