Italy votes to cut number of MPs and senators

Italy votes to cut number of MPs and senators

"Cara the initiative. First of all to reduce the number of MP's this was a big headline initiative of the five Star Movement. Why was that? Did they have a sincere belief in reducing the the role of government in Italian life or did they just think that you never lose votes by leading up on politicians? Well, the movement five stars as people who do follow Italian politics will know was born essentially as an anti elitist movement from the very onset in fact, it was never. Going to be a party, I told at the very beginnings it's very point was to remove the privilege of the ruling elite and the the the reduce reducing the number of of MP's was seen as part of that historically There is a consideration, the one of the main considerations from the point of view of the movie stars and other parties that have. Box. This referendum is to save on the cost of politics whether the cost is actually relevant enough. The savings are relevant enough to actually make significant difference is to be determined but it's difficult to oppose such measures from the point of view of symbolism writes in the. PD. So the center left Party, the Democrat, party has had to back this referendum eventually partly because we are they are now in a ruling coalition. With the move and five stars and they don't want to be seen at odds with one another because that could put the government risk. But also because nobody wants to be perceived as the party who's protecting the elites ultimately because the cost thing is nonsense isn't it's one billion euros over ten years which in the context of the national budget of a country, the size of Italy is beans it is and that's been remarked a number of times As I said, it's more about the symbolic gesture than anything else in front. One of the a practical consequences that this reduction will have is that a will significantly decrease the amount of representation. So that right now, there is one MP in the Chamber of Deputies. Every. Ninety six, thousand, Italians dutton number will now go up to one each one, hundred, fifty, one, thousand Italians, and think the will be particularly seved at the level of the Senate because the Senate is elected kind of via regional route so that there is different electoral colleges, etc, and set in regions will see the number of their elected representatives go down by or more than half, and that's significant from the point of view of how much. Swayed will have in the chamber. Extremely significant and does appear to be the obvious drawback of this game. Nevertheless, it was very popular among your fellow. Italians with seventy percent voting for why is that? Do you think? Do you think that's an if you think about Europe as a whole? Is that an unusually high number more than usually sick of the people who are running the country? I think one of the reasons why the result was so high as because it was ultimately backed by lot of parties so that the party division line was less dark than it would've been now the situations in which these referendums have been politicized the moving five stars of course voted yes it's electorate voted compactly. Yes. Like almost ninety six percent or something this deal moving five-star electorate voted. For, yes. But the PD also officially backed it and the vast majority of the electorate of the Lega and all the rest of the center right also did. So when you sum up all these different parties that there's less of a political kind of undercurrent to it, other than a win for the moon five stars and a not rocking of the current political establishment because ultimately PD also bacteria. That's the political meaning that you're going to be gleaning out of it. So on the subject of gleaning political meaning from things, these regional elections were held at the same time. What did they tell us? It's very interesting because a lot of people over the last few years have wondered whether Salvini could get back on on his horse. Matteo Salvini. Yeah, no indeed and these regional elections where a very important appointment because it's the first time that Italians do vote after covid right? And there were a number of regions that historically have been left wing regions that were thought. They could go to the center right and that hasn't largely happened the centre-left has held in many of the places where it wanted to hold a apart from a mark wearing fact, the candidate that's now become the governor doesn't come from Salvini Spotty, but from Italy Italia, which is the other far right party but less of a kind of northern secessionist heritage more of the Roman heritage right. What we're seeing across the bode board in these results is that Salvini is losing grip on many things, other challenges from within the center right IRA merging not least Georgia Maloney the leader of Fratelli d'italia. So this other far right party not least. Competition within his own party Ziad. The governor of Benetton very popular in his region because of his management of Cavite has skyrocketed to six to seventy six percent. Results in in the region and so I think we're what we're seeing is that the left wing is holding where it probably didn't even think it would hold this much and that context government despite content not being an elected official of the centre-left has actually given a lot more credibility to the current coalition that I think anybody would have expected doesn't strike you though that this is a a left versus right question on more of a professionals versus populists question because a like a pandemic is about a stern test that any government can face and obviously Italy was one of the first places in Europe to face it on a very large scale. Is it possible that something of this sort has reminded Italian voters that maybe there is something to be said for voting for blandly competent and relatively calm people who are actually capable of doing stuff i. think that's exactly the point partly because the populist narrative, very much centers around narratives around you know migration and other issues that don't really relate necessarily to what many Italians rating about right now, which is administration economic recovery, which is returning to schools on you know relatively less appealing because they are much more ordinary budget still, very, very important concerns and interestingly you mentioned you know that the rise of the. Leader? Many, of the regional leaders. The. Regional governors are now coming onto the national stage and where in the past I think we used to see a lot more mess come into national politics right now we're seeing a lot more of these figures that used to be very much in the background because not many people focused on regional governors. Suddenly they were putting a spotlight because of covid this new whole generation of politicians coming to the full, and we will have to see in the next few years. How many of them will make the jump to national politics?

Khan Academy: Sal Khan

"Most of the products and services we've talked about on the show have been innovative or disruptive in some way. But some of them and you've heard me say this before have fundamentally changed the way we live I mean lift AIRBNB starbucks. Shop Affi-. wayfair. These brands have transformed the way that many of us shop and travel and work. But every now, and then a founder comes along that seems to want to do something even more ambitious, even more transformative like remember. Pat. Brown, he founded impossible foods to create meet out of plants meet. So meet like that even the most die-hard carnivores would want to eat it. Pat Wants to put a stop to meet production period because of the damage, it's doing to the planet and essentially and I don't think I'm overstating this. He set out from day one to change the world. But still. Pat Brown stands to make a lot of money from his company same with most of the founders who've been on this show and I don't think any of them are motivated primarily to make money but it is part of the story they make a product or offer service, sell it to you and me, and they also get rich perfectly fine. But what about someone who makes a product or offers a service that is equally transformational maybe even more so but makes it one hundred percent free To do that, you have to make personal sacrifices starting by earning a lot less money. which is just part of what makes Sal Khan. So incredibly remarkable. Over the past twelve years, he's built Khan Academy into a powerhouse, a massive online learning platform that offers free tutorials to anyone anywhere. And from the very beginning South sided, his academy would be a nonprofit that it should never be tempted to compromise on its values. But before he launched Khan, Academy Sal didn't anticipate any of this. He was just trying to help a younger cousin with her sixth grade math lessons at the time he was working for a hedge fund. But from those early days of doing one on one to toils sal gradually built a platform that offers hundreds of classes in dozens of languages. Nearly thirty million people use Khan Academy. Every month to learn math science arts even sat prep all four free and Khan. Academy has inspired the launch of many other online learning platforms, but many of them are for profit operations that charge money. But we'll get to all that moment first. Let's back up just a little bit sal Khan grew up in metairie Louisiana his mom was from India and his dad was from Bangladesh and the marriage ended when sal was pretty young. My parents. Had issues and so they separated when I was probably about eighteen months old two years old and then I had really never seen my father and I saw once four an evening when I was thirteen and then he passed away the next year so it was really might. mother who raised us as as a single mother. While was there a community of South Asian families in imagery? Growing up. Yeah my you know when my parents separated. We actually live with my young at the time they were in their twenty s, and so they all were kind of like father figures and almost like older siblings to to me as well and and a lot of ways they were not your stereotypical you know. Just come to the US study. Get a job save money kind of prudent immigrant story they were. They were much more embracing of New Orleans. Culture. And I would say they're the most new ORLEAN South Asians. You will ever find it in your life. I had a very colorful childhood. You know late night parties, people, singing, and dancing. For me it felt like a I remember my third birthday that my uncles got a belly dancer. I still remember Habiba you know So it was definitely a different type of childhood, but it was a in some ways a really rich one. So what did your mom do for a living? The first job that I remember her having she she was the person who takes the change out of the vending machine at the at the local hospital actually the hospital where I was born and she took me to work a couple of times 'cause she didn't have childcare and I thought at the time I remember watching her do that. I think it was like the coolest job on earth because you have the key that you can open up the vending machine and like quarters just pour out of it. So she did that for a little bit and then essentially was a cashier at a series of convenience stores is kind of doing you know one minimum wage job after another and then I was in high school she had remarried her my Stepdad at the time were able to. Kind of cobble together to get a a small convenience store in. Your book you write. Louisiana was as close to South Asia as the United States could get. It's spicy food. Giant cockroaches in the corrupt government which is both funny but somewhat true true. I guess right I mean. You grew up at a time when. Like David Duke was the. The representative in steel her. The part of Mary where we had our store, it was called seminole convenience store on Seminole Avenue, and it's called a parliamentary called on that was kind of the heart of David Dukes base. So to speak I remember in a right outside of our our store across the street was the largest David Duke for president signing I've ever seen and so it was A. You know the the folks who lived in the neighborhood who were frankly know Super David Duke supporters in some ways it was lucky. This is pre nine eleven They didn't really know what to make of my family at at the time We've had a few conversations I remember with people the store where they they openly told us that they were trying to decide whether we were white or the N. word to you know we were confusing them but you know growing up I was the only Brown kid in in the classroom. But I never felt in school at all like folks were in any way biased or racist against me. If anything I have to give the the school system to Jefferson parish school system, a lot of credit you know I think a lot of what I am today is because they gave me opportunities there were teachers that believed in me. I had a really good friend circle So so I have no. You, know I I don't feel like it was a a tough childhood.

Biden's Agenda for the Latino Community with Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia

"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode I have a conversation with representatives, Sylvia Garcia of Texas twenty ninth congressional. District. Discussed Biden's agenda for the Latino community and what we can expect from Bein Harris Administration including their plans to address income and healthcare disparities and the disproportionate impact of Kobe purpose. Of course, also addresses those criticisms of the campaign around whether their outreach to the Latino community is enough. So here is my conversation with representative Sylvia Garcia. Purpose Garcia. Welcome to the PODCAST. Well. Thank you for having me. If I I want to talk about the Biden Campaign I. Guess these are criticisms not doing enough to connect with the Latino community, and if you think that that assessment is fair or do you think that there's more work to do there? Were you know I think people are just so excited about the Joe Vying Kamala Harris. Ticket that everybody wants some light right there now in their neighborhood at knocking at their door, I mean, they're that excited about this ticket that I think there's some folks who who just feel like until they go come to their neighborhood, it's just not happening but but I know I serve on the National Latino. Council. For by now early supporter I know that from day one joe by his been reaching out to Latinos but I know that we can always do better. Anything that we could do to make sure that we reach more. Latino voters. Not Just in Florida not just in Texas not just in California. New York Arizona. New Mexico but everywhere across the country because if you look at any state these days we have Latinos everywhere we have them in Hawaii. We have him in Alaska. So I think what matters is knowing that that he has started his spanish-language press he started making sure that we we air as much as possible. Eh, he's gotten. The Latino Leadership Councils now in several states, I know I'm working on building up in in Texas because he wants to make sure that he touches the Latino community in especially also is Dr. Biden I think Dr Binding early on recognized Latino vote was and more importantly how important Bill Latino vote was that I know that she had a virtual event with with the would we call the commoditised synagogue Nestle. Which is Debbie Powell from Florida. Veronica, grammar from from Texas and myself were all three Judiciary Committee and people here called on ESCO mothers did judiciary it stock and Jill heard about it and wanted to do an event with us and we did, and now we're going to launch a commodity to commodity campaign to make sure that we impress all our voters that we got to vote until one mother to another. To remind work in our own mother network to make sure that we come out and vote to make sure that we make the change that's needed at the White House. So I'm excited. So one of the things I've found really impressive about Biden's response to that specific criticism is that he wasn't defensive and I think you know right before he visited Florida reporter asked him about. Whether there wasn't enough outreach to the Latino community and buying said something like you know I'm going to work like the devil to make sure that I listen and their vote. So he was open to the idea that there was room for improvement and I think both by an Harris are both consistent in responding without being defensive you know and they bring people to the table. There's a lot of work to do and I think we can always do better and I can tell you Scott along with surrogate were willing to do that. He's he's got a lot of people on the ground. Excited to do that. I mean I can tell you a story Saturday I. Don't do too many in person events, but they wanted me to go to a phone bank and I was assured that were social distance everybody's a math. And I went and the minute I walked in it was about Sylvia Joe Sylvia Joe. Any they know the job blindness running. They're excited because. It hurts them to see a White House that is about hurting people for us in. Texas. It's about what we've seen him doing at the border, but it's also seeing that they're not getting more help and more relief on for everybody on unemployment. It's also about what he's doing to Medicare and social security because that hurts our relief does on our lead us. So people know and they know the to make the change that we need they're going to have to get there in those phones. And? Of, course, the member of Congress I've First Ladies First. So that became their chance. Soviet Joe and I told him I said well, it's not just a joe as it Soviet Joe more contests. So I left him with at Madeira. Very excited.

I can't be as as an aviation aerospace journalist with an interest in military aviation I mean this that's the that's as good as it gets a secret of flight demonstrator for new fighter that you. You hear about the first time it's confirmed that there's nothing more exciting except for actually seeing it, which I hope we see when they but it turns out. I. Mean there there is a paper trail there's a, there's a little breadcrumbs that have been sprinkled. Along the path of public comments, I air force leaders over the past couple years leading to this, and some of them have only become sensible in retrospect now that we know that this thing really does exist. But in some ways are actually quite explicit and I think I'd point initially to an exchange ahead with journal Goldfine who just retired a month ago but a year ago at the same event even though it wasn't virtual at the time, it was in Bersin. Gerald goldfine chief of staff had a press conference I was asking about next generation air dominance in my big question was about the propulsion side of it congress at the time was was expressing quite a bit of frustration with the air force because it's been billions of dollars on adapted cycle propulsion, and there was no publicly available roadmap to use it, and so they're saying. Why are you still asking for this money? We have no place to put it. You know. So tell us where you're going to put A. I, put that question to many explain what you know. It's it's bit difficult because there's a live classification while tennis and so there's only so much. We can say they said L. L. Region his exact quote he said he's here's our. Strategy. We have five key technologies that were investing in that we don't intend to have all come together on a single. To be able to do the mission. In the future, we expect these technologies to be adaptable to existing platforms, and we expect these technologies to come forward into a family. I, know use family assistance a lot but really, and truly that's the next generation dominance. So as a so our intent is to keep these joint technologies moving aggressively and have them come together. They will all mature in accelerate at different paces as they become ready. You'll see US adapting them on existing platforms, sensors, and weapons, and also looking at new platforms sensors. So that was what he said and then I I didn't understand what really what he was getting out. I just didn't he didn't answer my question. So I repeated my question. What is the you know? When are we going to see a roadmap for adaptive cycle propulsion? And he his answer was there has to be a test article to be able to take some of those technologies to mature. That's probably about as far as I can go in quote right so what he was saying they're in retrospect is we have five technologies. We're GONNA put on in Gad. He didn't say but sounds like adaptive cycle propulsion is one of them and You know they need a test article, a flight test demonstrator in other words. To validate the majority of the technologies in-flight. So. That was almost as explicit as the air force has been about that. But really there was a time when. The Department of Defense was even more explicit about the the plans to actually use flight demonstrators for next generation are dominant and it goes back Congressional testimony in twenty sixteen at the time Frank Kendall who was the Under Secretary of defense for Acquisition and technology a acquisition technology in the justice. It has written testimony. included this written test, the House of Representatives. twenty. This was actually in calendar year twenty fourteen and it was going to launch a program in. Fiscal year.

We know from Rocha's comments that the flight demonstrator that he's referring to be called a full-scale flight demonstrator so as a subscale or Even, a large aircraft that is meant to extrapolate the flying qualities of even of an even larger aircraft.

A Million Mortgage Borrowers Fall Through Safety Net

WSJ Your Money Briefing

A Million Mortgage Borrowers Fall Through Safety Net

"Early on in the pandemic Congress set up a program to protect homeowners with mortgages from losing their homes. But about a million borrowers have fallen through the safety net missed payments and late fees or putting them at greater risk, and that's further heightening fears of an eviction and foreclosure crisis with more on why so many borrowers have fallen behind on their mortgages despite this relief program, we're joined by our reporter Andrew Ackerman Andrew. Thanks for joining us. Hi, Charlie. Thanks for having me Andrew. I, tell us how this program known as forbearance works. It's unique to this crisis forbearance in the past has been used very narrowly for hurricanes or very regional Zaslov this time it's being used to keep as many people nationally in their homes as possible who are harmed rather virus and it just means you can skip up to a year of payments on your mortgage. And then make them up later. Somehow there's a little bit of a complication because it it applies to all federally guaranteed loans which are most of the market Fannie Freddie or fha backed loans. There is a market for private loans or loans aren't backed by the federal government, and some of those lenders are offering forbearance and others aren't, but for most of the market people can get this. Okay. So when we talk about one million homeowners falling through the cracks, what exactly does that mean that means is that there are a million people who have for whatever reason stopped paying their mortgage their at least thirty days behind or delinquent, and they are not in a forbearance plan. This includes both borrowers with Fannie and Freddie loan as well as people who have a private loan alone from a portfolio loan with a bank or something you know securitise in the private markets will don't. They know about the forbearance program are they scared to participate what exactly is going on here? That's a good question and I think the data's kind of murky but the from talking to lenders, some consumers, some counselors, the picture that we have is that a lot of people don't understand what forbearance means so they don't. Really know what their options are. The other thing is that early on especially early on and still somewhat today the messaging from the lenders was you can take a forbearance, but you're GONNA have to pay all of your mis- payments in one lump sum at the end of the forbearance, and that's really scared people that the scripts that the mortgage companies go through with people on the phone have changed significantly and there's a lot more outreach and education efforts that some of the lenders are trying the consumer groups in some lenders. Say It doesn't go far enough. They'd like better marketing but those are the two factors. There's uncertainty or it's an unknown thing and there's this fear that people have to pay everything back at once and that's just not feasible for most people. Why don't you describe for us the process of trying to obtain forbearance how hard is it? It shouldn't be that hard. There's no documentation requirements. You Literally Call Your Service and you say you can't pay and you WANNA forbearance and they're supposed to the the law, the a rescue bill from March called Cares Act. It says that people are entitled to up to a year. It's says six months that can be renewed for another six months. You have to ask for it. A lot of the lenders have been offering customers short of six months at a time they've been doing three-month for. That can be extended another three months and then twice more beyond the initial six months. Just kind of depends on the lenders it's supposed to be really easy to get. It's still confusing even the we've talked to people who got the forbearance and they were also getting letters from their lender saying that they were at risk of foreclosure because they've missed all these payments and so you get these contradictory messages from your from your lender those lenders are saying hey. Just ignore these letters these contradictory letters we were required, send them by state or federal law, and just know that you've got a forbearance but we still talk to people who said that kept them up at night. Well, I was wondering, for instance, people were jumping through hoops trying to find information about forbearance on the telephone well that he has also been a significant issue if. You talk to counselors and some of the consumers we talked to they would say that I mean they describe this kind of bureaucratic nightmare to be honest everything has happened kind of quickly if you talk to the lenders, they say they're moving to kind of implement this forbearance plan on a scale that's never been envisioned for forbearance before. So they're hiring people to take calls their. End Result is at least initially, the times were significant. People were waiting a long time to get someone on the phone when they did get people on the phone calls might be dropped or they'd be sent to voicemail at the servicer and then they wouldn't hear back. So you have to kind of call the main number again, unfortunately, a lot of the servicers that the way. They're set up you can't just call one representative at the servicer. So you just of are dealing with somebody different every time they're following a script. So what they can say can be kind of very tightly controlled, and if it's with jargon people who aren't very skater even people who are sophisticated and don't know a lot about the mortgage market, you know it can be. It can be very confusing. These terms are not it's not intuitive. Are there a significant number of borrowers who've been in forbearance but of defaulted? Anyway that's the peculiar thing. There are significant numbers are what I would I think it's fair characterizes significant. There's about two hundred, fifty thousand people who were in forbearance at one point since the pandemic there now, no longer in forbearance and. They. are still past due on their loan and it begs the question. We don't know why that's the case. I haven't been able to find someone situated like that. But that's what the data shows and we we talked to people who had experience during the last crisis in two thousand eight and there were always people who just the lenders couldn't reach out to you know they. Knew, they were behind, they thought they were in trouble, and so they docked there servicer at every turn and it's speculative. But people think that that's that's this population kind of fits into that camp and so there are some efforts to reach out to those people. I would also say that two hundred fifty thousand is relatively small. There's fifty three million mortgages in this country Million people have been on forbearance at some point since the crisis started were down, it's under four million. Now, most of the people who've exited forbearance are either performing on their mortgage or they have paid off their loan. So it's an alarming number. It's relatively small and the whole universe and the whole mortgage universe. But there is also a concern that as people kinda hit the six month period who still need help that the number would increase because they won't know they actually have to request the extension, the additional six months. What are the next steps to watch for in this forbearance program? What's on the horizon forbearance figures overall spiked In April, May I believe June and they've steadily declined since the summer or late summer and what will be interesting to watch whether or not that trend continues or you see more people who need help, and probably if you see that, you'll see more people kind of falling through the cracks here where they don't know how to get help that sort of based on macroeconomic trends. Major companies are laying people off tens of thousands of people, and that's I think the Big Question Mark Wall Street Journal reporter Andrew, Ackerman. Thanks a lot Andrew. Hey. Thanks for your

"So it is nine fifty and we are joined by Clay Clark who's turning out to most dangerous man in the country lately clay you know I've known you for a long time. Some people think you're a bit of a nutjob. I think he got that component going for you. You're on fire now and you're making a lot of people very uncomfortable very. Nervous, talking about things that you can actually back up with documentation and the other thing for a little bit earlier, we mentioned governor stitch. You're in a unique position where you've got his ear, he seems to be one the guys the leader that's not not really following. You know the direction of the talking points whether it's from the health departments or CDC or whatever you know trying to get the the entire state to be masked compliant. So. Fill in those blanks for me. What can you tell me about? Still where's he going next? Well, I can speak to this. I know that governor stood is a Judeo Christian I. Know He believes the Bible was literal and I know he believes that the constitution is not a document that we move away from in times of crisis I. Believe he believes it's document foundational document. So he fundamentally believes in your First Amendment right to peaceably gather your Second Amendment right to bear arms and so as this, this cove nineteen chaos bears fruit. Although it'd be poisonous fruit I believe you're going to see him return to those principles with even more intensity. I don't think you're going to see him react the way that Communist China did to their virus, which turns out to have a point zero, zero, zero zero to four percent death rate according to the CDC as of Monday morning. So again, I would just say governor stood loves our country he loves US Constitution he loves the Lord and he's going to be keeping us in line with the constitutional rights that all Americans have fought. For so many people died to protect our country and he's not going to fall away from those principles win it gets tough. So how does the average listener out there I use my mom as an example back in Pennsylvania Up What's down I tell her it's like you know almost like walking into the The library, you gotta remember some parts of fiction. Some parts are nonfiction. She feels like she's been misled to. She's been lied she's been manipulated. She's not alone. What do you say to those people? Say One.

"Knowledge, you don't get in college, but you should about how government works with Kevin McDougal Kevin welcome onto the thrive time show. How are you sir? Clay outstanding. Thank you so much. Always admired you DR Z she appreciate you. Hey Brother I. For people out there who are Google searching your name fast and furiously right now. Tell everybody, what is your elected position? I am the State House Representative for district twelve in Oklahoma. So what exactly does that mean I? Think we have a country right now a lot of people are somewhat politically ignorant of who does what and how it happens, and that's how we end up with crazy people in an office. Seriously, this is how a lot of people are just apathetic to the entire political process what exactly during you do as the Oklahoma House Representative for twelve? Well district twelve is a district. That's in Wagner County. So I've got broken Arrow kushida wagner porter. Okay. that entire community hundred, eighty square miles. In my case there are a hundred one of us spread out across the state. Each one has a district minds big summer as small as two miles by two miles really. Well, all of them have about thirty, eight, thousand people in them. So. Our job is basically to represent the people in that district. So, when you say represent I, want to make sure we get this idea. You. You won't point decided to become politically active when was that? It was about eight years ago when I first ran for office and I was basically just aggravated at government. And I was a business guy and I thought you know what the guy that I was could run against was the one bringing obamacare to Oklahoma and I thought I don't want obamacare and nobody else is running against this guy. So guess what I will, and so that was my first run for office and had never even been to a political meeting prior to that. I have five more rapid fire questions and I'm going to open it up here for the we have kind of town hall of of sorts in our studio today. So As a politician Kevin has thought Asians are really. Hated individuals I mean people really hate a lot of politicians. Do you ever hate yourself? I hate politics. That's for sure You know. I'm I'm not a politician even though I'm in politics right now and I think there's a big difference. A lot of people look at politicians and what I see on the federal level or politicians who kissed and give two different answers depending on what crab there in front of true right that's the typical end game politician. But when you've got business people who get into politics I think it's more like the military folks and that's My background, right. So if I if I go recruit a military person to run for office I, know that at least once in their life, they were willing to give their life for something greater than themselves and in politics too often we see people who are in it for themselves and so I think that's the big difference is You got people are in politics that are not politicians traditional. So what do you do on a daily basis in your role I mean you you? Walk us through your daily flow. Sure. February. Through May we're actually at the State Capitol and that's what we call in session So for four months out of the year, they were March April and May were out of district were at the Capitol we're trying to either create golf or get rid of bad law and our our whole job is to represent the district that we came from. So I have a rule district that's full of farmers and veterans small towns and So my needs for my district or a whole lot different than the needs of downtown Tulsa, right. So I have to represent my district but on a daily basis, we simply as a politician who state government you have to be able to build relationships in order to get anything done. Always thought that once I was elected that I get there, I'd be able to create law. The problem is I can have the best idea in the world, but if my leadership Does not like me doesn't want me around doesn't appreciate something I've done nothing I bring to the table will ever heard. And so you have to be able to not only have good ideas but build relationships so that you can get things done now really I'm not an elected official. So I'm going to say some things that you probably can't say and I just WanNa. Know you you know you're going to be going to the state capitol February, through May your at your in session there. Is it possible to pass some sort of rule some sort of law where GT BYNUM can go in quarantine for several years The mayor of Tulsa? Can you do that? Is that something you have the power to do? Want WanNa put them in quarantine by himself because he's afraid of the virus, he can wear a mask. He can run around there and he can be totally safe. I'll be I'm willing willing to read my taxes. I'm going on the record saying this I'm willing to spend extra one hundred dollars a day every day for the next however many two years to make sure that he is fed and clothed in quarantine I'm willing to pay the tax. Can you do that for? You know what? We could always bring it to the table and you might even have close to fifty percent of the people there both. Obviously what are your thoughts on these mass mandates in these these lockdown, they just want to get your take. On constitutional I mean anytime and think about this. They're saying the reason I'm supposed to wear my mask is to protect those other people around me. And the reason they're supposed to wear there's is to protect me and that's the biggest most bogus line. I've ever heard think about this if I'm really concerned about the health of somebody else. Why do I not tell them what to eat? Out at Burger restaurant. Every day and go get something healthy. Is that my job my job is personally responsible for myself and that's it. And so I have to be personally responsible for me. I'm the one that make sure. I. Don't get sick but this idea that you're mass protect somebody else's just the media's way of saying if you don't come along with us your equivalent to throwing grandmother off the cliff, right? you're you're that type of person you don't care about anybody unless you wear masks it's unconstitutional. They can't tell us what to do with our time money energy other than through the taxes that we pay.

So I think I was sixteen when I came out Even, though I was no longer a small child I, what I remember most palpably was bursting into tears at the end of the animated film when Milan she's at the Forbidden City and she turns around and it feels like the entire country is kneeling and bowing and Reverend before her and the swell like I remember for years after that, like you know even without we watching the film just thinking about that moment. Just swallow emotion. Kind of being unprepared to see that image of of somebody who representative you know about as exactly. Who I was, you know just a small Chinese girl could be treated with such respect and honor. Listen. you know and reverence that was so moving. So that's what I remember most about you know the animated law and I think the way that made me feel is is sort of what I treasured about that movie even though it was, you know I haven't seen it in such such a long time.

"You know we would have really had to significantly downsize if we were relying on my paycheck. Now kind of carried over none of course on as you go forward I was the one that was pregnant. I'm so happy to see more and more men taking paternity leave that even in thousand five when I had my first child that wasn't routinely done. So I was the one taking maternity leave and then because I, was on maternity leave I was figuring out child care for our children because he was working. So all of these things sort of set up a system where I was really in charge of so much of the child care and then so. Many families are sort of in similar situations and you're right when it comes down to will look we don't have any childcare options. Who's GonNa you know who's GonNa have to stay home and take care of the children and who's going to go to work. It's you know in that type of a situation in my family would have made sense for me to do it because he would have been the one making more money to keep our family going so. Those decisions are being made a and then, and so when we're talking about the policy. I would say some of this is even bree pandemic. During the pandemic I think it's so critical. We get money to get kids back to school Emma, get money out care centers in, and I would argue that pandemic the childcare in this nation was not where it needed to be really empower women especially been all working parents to go back to work with that that great feeling that your kid is in. You know in enriching child care and they're safe and they're taking care of while you're working. If that's a really good point, you're absolutely right there wasn't childcare crisis before the. Pandemic right and I want to talk about that later because I think the picture right now for me when I was thinking about what's happened with childcare during the pandemic it's a really mixed picture. You've got know parents who working from home right and childcare isn't either available or it isn't safe right and then you've got those nineteen million people you know those nineteen million single parent households right and that's another another issue, and presumably there's a lot of overlap with essential workers there leave the childcare workers themselves. So I, mean canoe. Up How the pandemic has exacerbated the childcare crisis well we. Heard from so many people in my district who run childcare centers, it already was a business model where. They didn't have a lot of profit ed to begin with they didn't have a lot of money stored away in the bank and so when the pandemic hit and and nobody else as putting their children in child care in many states including mine childcare, certain of your centers were closed. It really hit those that industry incredibly hard. We know that many of the childcare centers without real support from the federal government won't be opening their doors again and on the ground, just a a and I know you know this shrike stays the same thing you know there were waiting? Weightless of a year Mardi get into a lot of the childcare lie the childcare town, and so if you're a mom and you're working and you get premed and his you think, okay, we'll figure out what I'm GonNa do a childcare in and you have a year way or even if you can get your child in child care, many of the senators don't take very young babies in you have to get back to work fleets. This all adds to the problem so. The. Heroes. ACT But fifty eight, billion dollars into just in childcare funding because it's so critical food his interest rate I think this is not important not just. For really empowering women as we go forward and passed out of Irish I think money is critical it cost a lot when you're having low class sizes when you're having a lot of Geeky. Eager when I've heard from some schools they said if I'd known it a couple of months ago at I know now I would have bought stock in plastics their. Plastic sheeting at you know they're trying to put a plexiglass everyone's safe. So. Critical who put money into but really I have to save the number. One thing we have to do, and this goes for our schools and our childcare centers in our small businesses in. So many of our economy and industry is we've get the virus under control. Acid the plan that was the number one thing on the plan that Joe, Biden and Claw Harris put for getting the virus under control. And I'll tell you what's heartbreaking to me is that we'd missed an opportunity in this country to do that, and because we didn't virus under control now our children are paid for it because like I said, my kids are going to go back virtually. We're GONNA do the best weekend, but it's not the same and they're not really receiving a great education right now, and that's where a family like mine who can actually get their kids online. So many children across the country. Aren't even going to get that that basic level instruction. So speaking of the Biden Campaign you know I know they've propose something like seven, hundred, seventy, five, billion dollars I think overall and part of that includes and this is again beyond you know the pandemic free preschool for three to four year olds. Right course right now states like you said, they're they're long waiting lists. There's no free childcare before kindergarten and I remember my mom and this was you know ages ago. When I was four, she opted to just put into kindergarten early because you know childcare was. So expensive has a childcare package of this size I know in my my memory, my adulthood I, don't remember anything being proposed at the presidential level of the size. Yeah, I. Think it's such a great proposal because I know I, I come from a background of criminal justice reform and when we look at things. That they can really make a difference in in helping people in not having students on the to prison pipeline. As we say, one of the best things you can do is invest in early childhood education and it you know it's not necessarily intuitive right? How does investing in a three year old? Give you gains for a fifteen year old down the road it doesn't necessarily it intuitive look at all the studies. Our invested in Preschool and Save Society seven dollars in sixteen cents in just the outcome of that individual and so I think it's such a it's such a good idea. It's such a great off to invent to invest in early childhood pre, K. and too many times in this country this not a a Republican or democratic thing. This is a society too many times in our country we. Don't WANNA put the upfront investment and things we know were, and we'd almost rather just pay when crisis hit. So we don't pay for headstart, but we pay billions of dollars in prisons across nation. We don't pay for preventative health care, but we end paying billions of medical costs as we care for people in emergency rooms, urgent care for diabetes or care for care for people with really health outcomes. I think plan to invest in early childhood education could not only read great rewards for our society in our country. But I also think it's just it could just really have a huge impact on an individual's lives and their opportunities down the road. So can you talk about the two pieces of legislation that passed the house? There's each childcare's essential act and the childcare for economic recovery of those cover exactly state I know in the House we passed there's a fifty billion dollars of your savings ation find these are. The Community Development Block grants you may have heard of, and he's award able is IT industry and in the child care for economic. Recovery Act, that we passed in the House Helps Bring Twenty Child Within reach of people provides tax credits to support different providers. It makes the child.

You can't do something other than kill them. It is not to be understood not to be undisturbed. While said. Either So let's let's talk about the most important things that we should be doing right now to make sure we do win the White House and the Senate and hold onto our house majority what has you concerned, and where do you want people to focus their attention right now Well you know I am concerned because we have to always be concerned and we've been in the struggle to register people to vote. Episode many years, and we still have people who have not registered to vote. We have now made it easier for people to register to vote. We have same day registration in so many states now in California same day registration takes away the excuse of that Apple. God I was busy couldn't get away for my job you can plan. For Same Day registration that's very important. The other thing that's very employed is the mail in vote did we were talking about vote by mail You don't have to get to the polling place in California. Every registered voter is going to get a ballot in the mail that they can fill out and send it back. Don't let it languish on the top of the refrigerator somewhere no it out and send it back. If you have questions call your registered voters call your elected officials. I, don't care who you call call you minister call somebody call me. Call you. Call. And get some answers. So that. You can feel that ballot out and you can get it back in, and of course, there will be polling places and so you can you have a choice you can go to the polling places there be some early voting so that you can manage your time. So if on election day where you had planned to go to the polls a, you had planned on absentee voting, you need to know that. You have some other alternatives and so please you've got to get the answers. You've got to return the ballots. You've got to take advantage of same day registration in voting. We have so many options now, and so I want everyone to take responsibility number one then. Take responsibility for those around too and people that you are connected with our conversation should be good morning. Have you registered to vote? In how you doing today? Have you registered to vote? That should be a mentor we should. That's what we should do every day all day, and then we should help people know how to get registered to vote, and then of course, we have our Internet..

"Procedural hurdles thrown up by Republicans and Mules of complaints from Donald Trump the house of representatives impeachment Juggernaut bore down on its goal on Wednesday evening with the impeachment of the US president likely sometime after nightfall calling trump an ongoing threat to our national security and the integrity of our elections. The House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi Open the debates just after midday onto articles rules of impeachment charging trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. A simple majority vote in favor of either article would result in trump's impeachment. Each moment trump was not planning to stick around for the big moment. An accident sheduled had him heading to a campaign rally. In a small city in Michigan Wednesday evening but trump's fierce efforts to seal himself in a bubble of adulation and his insistence that Republicans pretend away the existence of facts facts. Threatening to pierce that bubble could not divert the reality coalescing on Capitol Hill wearing large pin of the ceremonial Mace of the Chamber. Barashi rose to speak on the House floor. Nancy Pelosi warned that our founders vision of a republic is under threat by actions from the White House is this is tragic that the president's reckless actions make impeachment necessary. She said he gave us no choice. Praising the moral courage of our members some of whom in court political risks by backing impeachment Pelosi announced six hours of debate on the matter has speech was met with sustained applause from her caucus republicans accuse Democrats having vendetta against trump and running. What they say was a corrupt process? While Democrats taunted Republicans for not even even attempting to defend trump on the merits trump is set to become the third president in us.

"It could be a song a moment a movie. Anything we think is the best of the best of the year here are picks on pop culture happy hour from NPR. And we're back and sue house speaker. Nancy Pelosi made a little bit of News as we were heading into the studio here definitely a little bit of capital intrigue now now so in order to understand what happens next after the house in peaches. The speaker of the House has to name impeachment. Managers these are members of the house. Democrats that will serve service centrally as the prosecution in the Senate trial in order to sort of move. The process along. The speaker has to do that. Those are the people that go and technically inform the Senate that the president has been impeached. Very technical it's a process step. It says it's like so Oldie time like they need to get on horses or something but without it the Senate cannot not begin an impeachment trial so Nancy Pelosi tonight has indicated. She's going to hold back on him. Naming those impeachment managers to see what Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer can come up with in terms of a Senate trial indicating that they WANNA make sure. It's going to be a fair trial Don't know who's going to be the judge the the metric of that who is the arbiter fairness. It doesn't seem like anyone can agree on that right. It's a total. It's been a total surprise in this. There's been some chatter among Democrats that they might do the strategically originally because they don't think there's going to be a fair trial in the Senate but there's a lot of political games being played here and we're GonNa have to see how this unfolds before they had out of town for the end of the week and and there's a reason why Democrats are sort of raising concerns about whether it might be a fair trial. And that's because the the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell as essentially. He said that's not what he thinks. His role is not an impartial. Your this is a political process is not anything. Judicial about impeachment is a political the decision. Yeah I mean it's not fair trial this is this is politics. This is the the arguments that Republicans were making in the house. You're going to hear Democrats start making in the Senate. The minority parties. Not GonNa like the way. The majority party wants to do things. These are not criminal court proceedings. This is a political process and the lawmakers who run the chambers roles. Great the rules. What's the bottom line on what the Democrats consider fair to? They have to have those White House. Witnesses that Chuck Schumer asked for. What is it that they want? I mean that's the question here in Baluchi did not exactly define what Democrats he is a fair trial. Also this is a little too congressional but one chamber of Congress doesn't get to tell the other one how they do business. That's just not how this place works. So I don't think Mitch McConnell is going to be much interested in Nancy Pelosi's input on how he should run the Senate I think Democrats are going to make a a case that the Senate should call the witnesses that the house didn't get to hear from the two names you hear. Most often are acting White House chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton the Senate as it acts in a trial has the ability to subpoena witnesses and ignoring a subpoena for a Senate. Trial is a quite a bit of a different manner than ignoring a subpoena for Congressional hearing. It seems to me that there are a lot of unanswered questions. But the good news is that we have daily podcast and we will be back in your feet as we learn more about this and of course once there is a Senate trial we will follow it every single day but for now we're going to leave it there and we will be back late late tomorrow night to break down everything that happens in the next democratic debate.

Oh that the trump administration is going to is not going to cooperate even when it's outside of the bounds of their authority which was somebody who never worked for him and you know and we know what Lindau Ski Din and maybe I should just stay at hearsay here. The President Wanted Lindau Sqi not not a member of the administration to go talk to sessions and to tell sessions essentially to shut down the Muller investigation that would learn what the what the Muller Investigation nations should really look at was future presidents not the current president so in basically if he didn't do that then maybe sessions should be fired so that right there was part of the Muller reports one of the examples of as Muller called potential obstruction of justice. It was very frustrating that Mahler did not just call it what it is obstruction of justice making it potential obstruction of justice was very eight frustrating us. Well you used the word frustrating I mean people are frustrated and scared and and fatigued y'all this too which is the really important point and our focus is getting people into action because whatever happens with Congress and impeachment or not impeachment or anything we need to show up and we need to vote me people gnashing what do you what do you say to people who want impeachment are wondering why. Congress isn't acting here. How how how can they beat an active participant in sure and you know what it is so important because it's one of those issues again that could demoralize and how as an activist it's really important that we constantly engage people because unfortunately if you watch the TV all you hear about is trump trump. I mean it's exhausting. You would know that we did anything else. You wouldn't pass gun legislation prescription drug with all of the stuff we're doing you have no idea about out and so it's really important as we carry on with with sea change and other other activists out there that they really do talk about what the Democrats Kratz have gotten done because why should I bother voting. Why did I care about getting the Democrats in charge. They haven't done anything. It's very easy to think that when we've actually done tons and and so the impeachment issue is a tough one because we all know that we could impeach him and he's not going to be evicted victim and so we wanNA impeach him because he we want him to leave what we would be very frustrating to impeach him and have him be in the Oval Office the next day and and then use that as his campaign you know I got exonerated. I mean they even went so far as to impeach me. I got exonerated. McConnell exonerated me. You know what I mean. the other thing though that people have to realize and I explain this town hall meetings. We are frustrated because we've wanted him gone since January the of twenty seventeen and we've saw him investigate it for two years and nothing happened but he wasn't investigated by Congress. We have been in power our for nine months now and the first month we were in a shutdown the second month the Republicans really wouldn't make Simon's so we didn't really get going until L. March so from March to September. That's a very short period of time so it's easy to look at it kind of just from your perspective effective and very very frustrating. That's why I think it's really important to talk about the things that the Democrats have been trying to get done and also we gotta get the Senate and we got to get the the White House and so to me. All effort needs to be on twenty twenty making sure that we're out there talking to voters so that they don't get demoralized and say okay well. These people doesn't matter what he does now. He's going to be interesting. It's such so egregious that this whistle blower happen. Let's see if it changes public public opinion because he is his his criminal acts are so massive that will change public opinion or I mean. What did he say he could go on. Times Square and shoot somebody you know what I mean so that's really important about impeachment as well. The public sentiment around impeachment needs to to be there and I know we've talked to a lot of your colleagues from purple areas who are doing town halls and said. It never even comes up exactly exactly what I know that you have to to get to a town hall so the last question is What gives you hope for our future. Oh Gosh I mean you know ironically this. This guy I believe has been a catalyst for activism. I haven't seen in a really long time. How Ironic is that. I mean the worst thing that could have possibly happened after the last election but again when something like that happens. You have to see what you can pull from. It and I think that he has inspired activists. It's all down the line now. It's our job to make sure that that gets sustained so that's what gives me hope. Twenty eighteen gives me hope twenty seventeen with all of the you know involvement yesterday's environmental marks the young people that are activating on on guns but it's our responsibility ons ability to make sure that that goes somewhere and and our I'm saying that as an elected official but it's all of our responsibilities you know we can't view changes. Will I'm GonNa do this for a few years. Then I'm going to go back and you know no it should be. It's a lot of countries around the world where they're much more political than we are. They know what's going on in our country. The Anna on their country and politics is just a part of their life. You don't have to do it full time but you do have a responsibility to know your congressperson is what your congressperson person does and let them know. You know what you like and don't like in in propose ideas so that's my hope. That's my hope well. Thank you so much for a great conversation conversation and all the good advice. Thanks thanks for having me on and thanks for doing this. Thank you if you want to support representative Bass's SEACHANGE LEADERSHIP PAC go to see change change pack dot org and that's S. E. A. C.

"representative" Discussed on Swing Left - How We Win

"You are failing us but the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The ice of all future generations are upon you and if you choose to fail US I say we we will never forgive you that was Greta Thunberg incredibly impassioned and beautiful speech to win General Assembly on Climate Change. She's amazing and just outclassing everybody. I woke up this morning to tweet from Donald Trump making fun of her her. I saw that too. Which is you know? Come on. It's I mean look. There's no shortage outrage for Donald Trump's tweets tweets and we managed to not talk about trump a lot on this and this episode is GonNa be a little different trump heavy. It's going to be a very trumpy episode. because we have two main things to talk about and one is of course impeachment the official impeachment inquiry and trump's criminal acts and and we're. GonNa talk about that but we're not gonNa let it overshadow the incredible work that Greta Thunberg and these young activists have done around the climate yet. It's a pretty spectacular what they're doing and one of the things that I love about it particularly the so Greta and fourteen other young people filed a lawsuit against five countries this week over climate change and it's a broad and diverse group of young people and I think that as exciting as as it is to see Greta standing up to trump in the UN and calling us out on our failures as a society to to the world's children she standing on the shoulder of other young giants who don't get the same accolades. Don't get the same attention she's standing on the shoulders of the the indigenous youth who were activated by the Dakota Pipeline Project and and the Black Youth in Flint to were immobilizing into to save their own water supply and what we see here in. La Latino youth activated for years to to get clean air in their communities unity's and so this is an opportunity to say wow look at this young woman but also look at all of the the young people who she was able to mobilise because of the work that they've been doing. That's great point yeah not for nothing. There's a great meam of her. Giving laser. Evil is donald trump as he walks in a room which I just want to watch on a loop over and over again. 'cause it brings me joy a very stressful week. Every face in that room is a mood and hers is the most relevant bats you're right but yes speaking stressful weeks happy impeachment week what we're calling this. I'm I am right now. So here's the thing and it's obviously very serious and we talk about it a little bit with Congress woman Karen Bass later on also. We had this conversation with her a few days ago. A lot is happening moving very fast week. Yeah Speaker Pelosi announced that the houses houses officially launched an impeachment inquiry. This is all happening but we have a very specific job to do around this because impeachment. Mitt proceedings going forward. That's not going to save us and it's still incredibly unlikely that the Republicans are going to do anything we're not. GonNa have sears in the Senate right so what we can do what we must do right. Now is create that public narrative around impeachment and give the people who are coming hang out in favor of it. Give them support re tweet them to make sure you're following them. Call those offices all those offices exactly call all of your representatives tentatives and then have your friends and neighbors and everyone do the same thing because this tide is rolling but they need our support. We have a very key role. Play in this and there are still some folks you might be on a tipping point that need to hear from the public. I think the public narrative so far has been the general public. The voters are ready for impeachment. They haven't seen anything that they feel is worthy of going through the whole process assists impeachment and Democrats are just going to make themselves more vulnerable with but public sentiment is changing with this Ukrainian News and in public sentiment has to change for this to move forward in an effective meaningful way so be loud about your feelings around impeachment. It will absolutely absolutely make a difference the other thing that we need to do around this is we need to keep registering voters especially in these key states. We know trump will do anything to win right. There is nothing he will not do to stay in power and this isn't hyperbole. This is actually really scary you guys he is using in US money to bribe other nations to help it win in plain sight in plain sight. It's like I wanna I wanNA laugh about it. It's it's really scary so we have to win. Overwhelmingly the house is going to do their job now. We have to do our job by reaching out and registering the voters we need in twenty twenty so that means the super states that means these swing states it means the Senate the Senate the Senate right absolutely need to be focusing on that and not let all of this impeachment and presidential stuff. Take away all all the around the room yeah and I think that if the impeachment train continues down this track even. Let's say you know worst case scenario. Oh they don't impeach because they don't have the votes to do it. There are S- vulnerable Republican senators who will have to answer for that in remember if they are not willing to step up and say oh we have all of the evidence we had all the evidence we needed but we wouldn't get onboard well then. You have some questions dancer answer from from some angry voters. That's exactly right so there's lots of reasons to be hopeful right now for reasons for hope one is I really we hope he does get impeached in this move forward even if the Senate doesn't do anything this. I believe personally that this is our moral responsibility to hold him accountable so we'll support our reps. your calls to action for this week or call your raps retweets their post help build public support our other reason for hope. Hope is this great climate March and the work that these kids are doing and coming up after our interview we have our first field segment where I got to go with my daughter and talk to some kids. I hope you you know listen to it because it's so inspiring and really really really cool yeah. We had a great time so calls to action. Don't forget about Virginia seven weeks. I think until Election Day in Virginia still time time we can take the majority and that's going to set up victories that will will not only i Virginia is the second hardest estate the vote in right by the way because of voter suppression and Gerrymandering and all that so those goodell's southern Voter Suppression Dak eight days you yeah they do It's also going to be a big test for twenty twenty the so much to get distracted with right now and for good reason Zain but we can do both right can look at this impeachment with bated breath and in great interest but we can stay focused on the work. We need to do on the ground and that's what we're GONNA. Do you can tweet about the impeachment and you can also go to swing left dot org slash Virginia and find some things that you you can do to to office. They're that's right all right. Let's get going with the interview.
