On the stimulus package so much congressional unity live from Washington DC secular life American people deserve the conversation about the began with and their need not part of the rush job not talking points.
We need to start with the needs of our country. Phone lines are open for your questions right now called 1-800-684-3110 talk a lot about you, but as White House and commercial leadership working with a different and now chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow discussions on the present for all the people working United work and work the other to get a resolution to all of this, starting with the covert relief which I think should be priority once I think we have agreement that that should be the priority.
The difficulty the problem is the wet method upon which it is going to be handled. So what is the method it's going to be handled well. The negotiations between Republicans and Democrats would really focus on a different, about $300 per individual. Not a huge difference there, but significant, but also $350 billion-$400 billion actually of aid to states that were in trouble before the coronavirus became a factor that is now going to be included in this reconciliation bill and because the fight for unity is complete and over.
There is no part of that is no bipartisanship anymore. This idea that were going to come and work together that Pres. Biden was holding off. Holding out the olive rate to the Republicans and that we are not going to be fighting to be working on a bipartisan basis and is going to be congressional unity has been completely put aside the America rescue act is going to be forced through the process of reconciliation which is highly partisan way of doing things.
It was used twice before.
I am recent times and it looks like it's going to be used again J shoved down our throats. This is what God John Thune said he said look I expect this the boat around as they call that is to start very soon, probably is probably starting right now I'm not looking at C-SPAN but it did. Probably starting right now so the house. The dissent, rather, is going to go into this process where basically they start these boats on a series of amendments. The end result of this is going to be a real bailout for cities like diverse states like California, New York, now the problem is these states were mismanaged way before the coronavirus now the coronavirus obviously continued that mismanagement, but to just say that it's time to fix it in the way to fix it is to have the American taxpayer pay for this out of their pockets whether trying to get Cloverleaf. I like to take the $350 million.
That's another $1000 a person coming $400 billion actually is what I think the number ends up being so you know, Mitch McConnell said that they try to get unity.
It wasn't gonna happen. They had the meeting at the White House and the and that resulted in nothing. You have a senator that I think it was eight or 10 senators, including Susan Collins and some of the other olive branch bears go to the President with a reasonable plan to do this.
The President basically rejects the. The attempt to work this out on a bipartisan basis sends him away empty-handed and says you either do it my way, or you're not doing it all in my way is the process of reconciliation which means that there is going to be most beginning I think tomorrow in the United States Senate J were talking about literally hundreds of amendments to be put forth to this bill. I mean maybe 600 by the way, he's not. That's not hyperbole. There will be hundreds this it is going to late leaving tomorrow night I coming up give you an update on a couple major cases and were filing that for your case it's revolve this week involving Eric's while. Well, that case can be filed in US District Court for the District of Columbia, Frank Manion is in be joining us in some of our pro-life cases that were now in litigation on cannot tell you some the work in Washington is going to not do nothing but expand Beverly joint by Rick Grenell situation with Germany and China want to discuss support the work of the ACLJP winter this broadcasters were. The ACLJ keeps his broadcast on their you know what else your support for lawyers or first teams in the field around the globe. The challenges facing Americans are substantial time in our value freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stand with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades. ACLJ on the front lines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in courts in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.
Here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms and then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you Knott's well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life changing become a member today ACLJ only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally support the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to the pro-life discover the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/back to the situation in Washington DC the moment, but also let you know that we are just weeks away from filing a major brain break in the Court of Appeals in California and I think were the most significant pro-life cases in the country and it involves three snatches the lipase, but it really involves freedom of speech are joining us right now is Ed White is a senior counsel for the ACLJ been the primary lawyer in charge of this case and let's go back a little, but I think it's important for audience understand exactly what this case is about, because it really does impact not just the life issue, but freedom of speech, startled and really started in 2013 when David glide in the center for medical progress. We represent a former board member released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood that the doctor talking about how they manipulate the abortion procedure elevated body parts lawsuits within food filed by the National abortion Federation. We represent our client in that case that ended and then Planned Parenthood follow suit and they are trying to destroy these pro-life advocates so that you will never have another undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood really any abortion entity ever again with crippling penalty went on for close to five years now. We had a multiple week trial in San Francisco and left about 67 weeks during the scope of our client entered a judgment in excess of $2 million and then a few weeks ago, the federal God Disco in order that we collect out close to $14 million. So we have to appeal. Below which are openly mock, challenging the American talking about the late, that all the time and number one, it protected number two could not with regard to our client is not found liable and so we are challenged with multiple found it complicated that the and that what should be happening. Focus should be on the client, not the journalists who uncovered what people understand. Here is being penalized for the sale of body parts. The journalist that reported the sale of the body parts are the ones that have civil cases against him and the threat of criminal action doing some of them Congress three years ago get a big investigation. Both the House and the Senate and made multiple referrals for criminal activity to various agencies. Whether it's the federal government, state governments around the country.
One thing resulted that in Los Angeles a company that dealt with the fetal body part sale that they got the body parts. Some of them from Planned Parenthood. They agreed to a close to an $8 million settlement by admitting what they were doing was wrong and had shut down their business. So let's stop again. So the people that he reported on guy served on the board for time this summer to Andy on this so the people he reported on actually entering a civil judgment acknowledging $8 million in damages because what they did was against the law and our guide. That was the guy that's been basically simply prosecuting him peaceably positive. But is this big civil case and potential criminal case on some the other defendants. While the company selling body parts as to settle their case and this is backwards jamming the guilty party. The liable party is scot-free. The party that did nothing that was abiding by the law is having to pay the damages and pay the penalty. This is the law system turned upside down on it said there was clear evidence that was discovered of the illegal sale of the body parts and yet those people are being awarded for their violation of the law and very illegal activity. While those such as our client who was doing the right thing and was supporting life is being penalized there something wrong with this system, terribly wrong yet so so what's the next move.
His next move is. The Ninth Circuit correctly at the Ninth Circuit.
We filed an appeal are opening brief on behalf of our client and the other defendants are filing their separate breaks are all due at the end of this month then separate from that we have. We just filed an appeal with regard to the attorneys fees that will be something I'll be challenged a few months down the looking at that and I'm thinking to myself, you know, I want to get back into this other settlements, so our guys are having a fight you on our team is having a fight this on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Okay, fair enough. But what what about the civil settlement with the body parts out. That was with the Orange County Dist. Atty. da Vinci entered into an agreement that they would stop what they were doing and agreed that they were at fault, so that was the only thing that came out of all of the criminal referrals from the House of Representatives and the Senate. They sent out multiple criminal referrals number of years ago, the Department of Justice acknowledged that they were investigating this, which was very unusual. They usually keep their mouth shut, but the only thing we've seen from this is that now in the state of Texas. There's been some other activity going on there. There's been multiple loss criminal charges being filed against the investigator so far, the one in Texas fell by the wayside wanted California that's been going on. Our client is not involved with that been dragging on for years. The concerted effort, especially when you look at what was going on in the California criminal case that was originated by Kamal Harris when she was the Atty. Gen. of California and that's when they went into David glide townhouse with search warrant sees all of his property everything they are the abortion industry. Whether politicians Planned Parenthood etc. is going full bore on these pro-life advocates to destroy them to send the man never try to show what we're doing again to the public and so this is a critical battle not only for life. Not the most important thing you know we are dealing with babies who are being killed, but it is with the First Amendment that if the average journalist cannot go and go undercover to expose along then what's the point of having First Amendment. The First Amendment to protect the press. Nowadays the President is ABC, NBC, the New York Times oppresses anyone who has a cell phone who can report on something that is fantastic because more things that are exposed the better when there is a long going on this country.
I think the critical thing here is obviously life is like you said defending the unborn.
But the First Amendment implications of this are so significant when everybody listening and watching the screen and understand that the significance of the situation when you have a communication method that is basically investigative reporting is as old as is journalism shut down and that your son was not shut down but it's penalized to millions of dollars, and at the same time. The irony that those involved in it enter into his judgments and settlements because what they were doing was unlawful and that get the people that are paying that the dollar price.
Also, are the people that reported it and any that's when I go back to and that's the chilling nature of what's on free speech year. That thing that bothers me and should bother everybody is right thinking about this the malefactor. The wrongdoer is being apprised and given rewards for their misconduct. Whereas we who exposed that the people who expose this thing through their investigative journalism are being penalized. This is wrong. This is backwards.
This is not a system that is working. It is a system that is severely broken and then needs to be changed. I can imagine that this is happening and I hope it will get some relief in the appellate court talk about the concept of chilling free speech.
This is exactly what were talking about that the fear is that if you exercise the right to freedom of speech.
You will literally be silenced with monetary damages that that's a great fair day. The idea is that free speech is not something that should be penalized because by the exercise of imposing monetary damages, penalties and money because you exercise your right to free speech is not exactly what's happening here.
It seems to me that it is so I think that's imprecise. It was happening and what is the date of the what's the date of the appeal was a brief dip 26th of February I appreciated everybody. The property was with that brief together arguments probably what March, April got an order yet on my guess is a problem. A lot of fighting on that when they go protecting life protecting free speech and we told you earlier in the week brand-new lawsuit being filed in Washington DC.
The issue there. Of course, deals with very important this whole Eric swallow Chinese spy scandal was on the intelligence with the aunties also on the impeachment document will be joined by Rick Cornell neck segments a T-shirt with different support the work firstname.lastname@example.org. Only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.
Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition like it will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later, planned parenthood's role in what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is powering the right question free copy mission life today online/challenges facing Americans for substantial time and are now stored constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to the American Center for Law and Justice ACLJ is going on the front lines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public and we have an exceptional track record of success. Here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side.
You are already a member. Thank you and not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ rock as we talk about this reconciliation issue by reconciliation on the covert relief well because the parties can't come to an agreement.
What is that mean the probably get you through the 350, $400 billion worth of aid to the states, which is been one of the biggest objecting points for the Republicans for conservatives because that's money and he not going to the individual people in need of the small businesses. Rather, it is the money going to where it's going to the governments which will never sit get lost in the morass well and it's going to governments that should not be getting. Instead, governments that were responsible physically before the government prices that have not balance their budgets that have recklessly spent that have done things that they should not done economically in their own jurisdictions now lining up to the federal government say bail us out to the tune of several of these hundreds of millions and millions of dollars and then that his money is that you correctly point out billions and millions. That is not going to the individuals who live and work in small businesses, which is the backbone of America and who should be getting the money.
Then in the beginning get losing it to the state bureaucracy Republican plan.
There was money for PPP for those that don't know that's payment protection. Protection allows these employers to get loans. I can be forgiven. So long as they keep you the employee or the employee labor is on the payroll was very successful in keeping unemployment without sky man still went up without obvious about business closures, but he kept it under control now you the lack of PPP is significant here now.
I don't know in the in the reconciliation bill amasses to our producer as a Viking Monday and Tuesday. It was very little or nothing for the PPP will delete kind of fans out today for family matter. Is there anything today. As of right now there is not. That is something that could be offered in an amendment by one of the Republican senators, but as of right now chance it would pass, though probably not okay so it could be offered Andy as a could be offered as an amendment. The problem is, I'd like to hear from our audience on this house your business doing. Do you need this assistance how to house your your your employment situation.
800-684-3110, 1-800-684-3110, but any that lack of PPP in Outlook got the vaccine, hopefully more. I think 30 million people been vaccinated. Now that we got a ways to go but it looks like things are were trending downward trend up a little bit yesterday that's can happen day-to-day but people need that PPP relief and went from small business owners I love to hear from small business owners 800-684-3110 but putting $400 billion or so into relief packages for the in this particular case current states and we know it's like California, New York, were in trouble before, and not getting to the small businesses is really dangerous for the country are on the message the federal money in this fashion, you're giving up the states who acted responsibly in their economics and their fiscal matters before, okay, now they're coming with their hands out say bail us out. What about the small business owner.
What about the pharmacy technician. What about the person working behind the counter in the store. What about the person who's who's got a small business putting up roofs or cleaning gutters were doing things like that they don't get this money. This money goes to the state so they can squander it again. That is wrong. J sent from Mitch McConnell on this because I know that he is said the new President talks a lot about unity, but as White House staff and congressional leadership in working for working from the opposite playbook. It's interesting to me is that all of that unity talk ends up another. Here's what he said the new President talks a lot about you, but as White House staff and congressional leadership.
Working with a different so that McConnell says which I think is is right will get senators on the record about whether taxpayers should fund check for illegal immigrants because they get the benefit hear that again.
If you're in United States illegally.
You can get that $1400 check. Is there any and I don't see any night again with a moon are producing our fans out so I don't see any restrictions on that. If you're there in that household.
Even though you're not documented you get the $1400 check. That's the way the language is written that I want to think about that American people for a moment. Okay we are going to you, me, all of us. Andy, the pay taxes are going to have. I would listen if we want to take that money stipulated someone here that's not here legally. How about giving it to someone's here legally and give them more money or how about this, let's figure out a way that those undocumented people get documented in the tax system Start paying taxes work and tax rocketship 40 million people back to their household of our Argent so it's it's there needs to be some kind of pathway may not be to citizenship for this generation. Maybe it's their kids, but at least that their status is such that they're paying into the system.
That's what's lacking here. Why in the world. We I don't even know what that number is, but I can imagine my goodness. If there's I don't know how many people are here illegally better to qualify for this. Do the math if it was 12 million people. I want someone to do the math on how much money that will be coming on is more like 20 or 30 million blood states just 12 million people, but any this is that this is the hard left of the Democratic Party pushing the party into this and putting the country in this direction.
That's exactly right names of the people who are the core base they were supporting Pres. Biden.
He told you he was going to do this, you know, when you voted for him that he was going to move to the left to satisfy the base to put them in power. And now you've got $1400 going to people who are not American citizens who are it who are in this country illegally, who may be working but I can tell they're not paying taxes but were going to shell out $1400 to them just for reason of the fact that they happen to be in the United States, and this is what you're getting from a Democratic administration under Pres. Biden. This is wrong. It is hard to me. It makes me really nauseated so joining us to get in the next half-hour you get into the rich got a piece up ACLJ identical: Butch Germany first. After Biden asked for help on China, but Rick just on this whole situation, or the acting idea and I the Democrats look at the get this package through the stimulus package without Republican support. Sixth approximate work is estimating that 16 billion of it will go directly to people but not in the states legally.
We had that same problem in California and this should be a basic function of government is to ensure that the programs and the money go to Americans shouldn't be Americans. First, it should be. Americans and I don't understand how Washington can be so out of the loop with black Republicans and independents Democrats. Everybody thinks that this is just something that you should fix fixture program so that you're not giving money to illegal aliens. Isn't that the William familiar but isn't that the left is get the hard left of the party of the Democrat party is just pushing this up through and they're not even willing to put a stop gap and that I think it's the hard left leadership in Washington. I don't see my heart laughed progressive friends in California at the programs, or illegal alien is just this is just something that leadership in DC. This is direct cash from the American taxpayers treasury to save this probably people and there's a lot more than that be $16 million.
This is just please make no sense no sense these policies makes a this is I got a lot more ahead and get into the situation with Germany and China. What that means for the United States. More on this reconciliation. Support the work of the ACLJ can do that by going to ACLJ.org that's ACLJ.org ACLJ is been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena.
The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ line from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow remotely got job as your counsel any combos with this are Senior advisor national security and of course international affairs Rick Grenell is with his former ambassador to Germany and former DNI national intelligence I wanted. We've been talking about the PPP situation and the lack of it in the Democratic plan. Rick here in California want to stay on this for a few minutes here a year in California and I know business is been hurting others a recall on the government. What can you tell us what it's like out there right now businesswise just community wise restaurants.
You can only outside gems are closed. Churches are closed but people are pushing the envelope to try to meet it's really outrageous just the total shutdown on top of that Gavin Newsom had originally shut down our beaches. There was such a pushback on that. That's not science that certainly is not backed up by science and so he backed away from that schools are still close the vaccine rollout is been atrociously Wealthy people getting the vaccine without cancer hospitals in Los Angeles go without role in the vaccine is been pretty difficult everywhere.
And so we were studios are basically not the way it's set up is also observed at 75 and over. Makes sense.
That is next up is 60 but will they hear at 70 and over 65 and over in the next group which amen is 16 to 64 I'm 64 so I'm lumped in with the €16 anything about this for a moment, so hopefully that's going to change because it is having a dramatic and distinct impact on businesses.
I want take a call from Paul who was calling from Missouri. I believe online one. Although I had gone there. I PPP money back in the art of last year. It meant really the difference between those going out of business and staying then once we got that money was able to sustain a spirit time, we were told that we could work because the quarantine people were shut down so it actually sustain this we had to rehire some of the people. But then we actually had the best year we had a very long time. Most construction people. Unfortunately, I know the restaurant business and I think that hurt, but most construction people are very very busy. One of the reasons is that we were out in the early days yet, so I appreciate that. I think that's part of my my main concern with the Democratic proposal here and he is the lack of PPP that is the payroll protection so that employees do not have to be let go and then come back on. That is my biggest concern I think that besides the 16 or whatever billion dollars going to people that are not your legally I think that that is a real problem. You know from personal experience of a small executive limousine service that that I'm aware of the I know the owner of it and he's got a small group of employees and he was dying and he was literally dying in the PVP under Pres. Tom came through and help them through the difficult times in 2020. But the Democrats cannot seem to learn from the past. They are not historians they are not students of history and they don't understand that history repeats itself. If you use that program. If you had that program you would be able to have payroll protection and you and I will be able to have employees. All business is continuing to work without batting that's not in the plan that is before the Congress.
Now you don't have that that protection that will wrote that I hang there to help people grasp on to really click on 42nd quick recall of the governor.
What's this is after real nation go to recall Gavin 2020.com it's about 1.4 million signatures now verify those that will drop again verification is some of those numbers away with mass rate whether nice people, great people.
What a mess. But don't worry you are coming from this relief package. I will be back with more talk about some international matters.

The ramifications of 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the Obama care me in many ways your membership is empowering the right question for mission life today online/684-3110 into combo in our senior advisor on international affairs, national surety Rick Cornell has joined us.
Rick, you got an article email@example.com by the way, it's a good to great. When everybody should be reading it. It's Merkel pushes Germany first after buying ask for help on trying this as she was in dollars that the couple days ago and was asked specifically about the rift between China and the United States and before we get into her response. Let's talk about the China US rep right now and put that in context for the years I would say 20 years. When we allowed China to come into the WTO. There was a belief that engagement with China.
China would work if we could just engage them more than they would go down the route of greater respect for human rights law, maybe work towards capitalism, but at least have some sort of form of working towards free and fair markets that has not worked and what we need to be able to do is recognize that China elects the currency they steal intellectual property they leverage American politicians with Chinese spies. They are training into academia in the United States, and this is a crisis and we need to be able to call it out and President trying to take them on trying to rally the last and push back on their tariffs, and manipulation of the economy and currency and he wanted to see the rest of the world. Unfortunately that didn't happen. You and I don't remember this particular paper, but we we did our project in Oxford for center that is a global center. We there was a P paper given on the new silk Road and that's why the papers we published in burnt building bridges and it talked about how the Chinese built the famous trade route was the silk Road are using their new silk Road to influence oftentimes bad actors. I ran Venezuela and we pointed that out. That was six years ago. Any that we did that that was already a factor in the world economy. Yeah that's true Jan that paper that was because that center exactly show the back way back road machinations of the Chinese are using in order to manipulate, but I think when ambassador announced that is very important when you look at the history of Chinese government and you look at the authoritarian regimes that have taken control in China.
And not just the recent bombing of long ago you do try to bring them into the net into the world of nations into the host of nations in the hope that they will reconcile their ways of doing business and their humanitarian and humanitarian principles. Principles that we in the West think of and cherish and we hold very dear, that's not going to happen with them. It's similar with the Iranians that we learned about when we were in Oxford as well.
There is not a way.
There is not a pathway that they have to thinking like us and so we embrace them, but we don't get an embrace back. We get a stab in the back so we look at the situation in which God China and United States and in looking through the eyes of Germany. Now you are the ambassador to Germany for the United States. Merkel says she doesn't want to take sides but no one is surprised that Chancellor Merkel is making this comment, but I was really important to highlight it for the binding menstruation because all he ever heard from the laughter is that Donald Trump style is the problem with the transatlantic relationship. And I totally disagree with that. I think that the Europeans have been stepping away from us and let's be clear. The bricks obviously accept was largely because they felt like the European Union was moving away from the idea of the last and certainly on immigration. That was the case, and so Chancellor Merkel has been buying oil in large amounts from Russia. She's not been paying her NATO bill. It took that Germans nine days to figure out what's side they were on Venezuela. They wouldn't shut down North Korean youth hostel in the center of Berlin. After we asked them multiple times we ask them for 12 years to take back Jack of Holly who was the Nazi prison guard living in New York City. Lots of examples of the Germans doing Germany first ignoring the states and I wanted to highlight this for the binding ministration because they seem to forget all that they seem to think that we could just build consensus with the Germans and with the Europeans and when Merkel goes Chancellor Merkel ghost dog asked whose side are you on between United States and China, and she says I talk to she I saw him in great it's not smart to take sides. That's outrageous and I hope the Biden team attention Jake Solomon is paying attention. Jake Sullivan has had some terrible comments about dealing with China and not recognizing how powerful China so I hope to pay attention to what she's saying she's letting us know Germany first will let Iranians know also that the rift with the United States and China is not just the rift. This is its economic warfare versus is a form of what it is, which really dealing with the repercussions of not protecting United States interest when it comes to dealing with China dramatic and I think Natalie dramatically could be disastrous for country long-term Rick, let's talk about that you are the ambassador over there and you and you and you really try to put our interests up first and foremost, which is what ambassador should be doing method you get resistance from Europeans corseted because we were flexing a little bit of our strength.
But the loss, the loss of a leading try to just get away with this, we will pay a heavy price. I was incredibly nice. I was maybe even what you call diplomatic reality. The reality is that diplomats from America should represent America and I think that if we want to avoid heart conflicts that you need to have diplomats who are advocating for US policy.
I was unashamed that I was representing the American people and so when I was there I constantly quest for more US jobs either in Germany or in America from German companies remember the Foreign Minister of Germany in one point saying hey can't you help us out here so effective at pushing Germany and I said to him, you know, this is the national security visor sign and I said to the national security visor. You know you have an ambassador in Washington was supposed to do that you should be talking to her and I am going to report back to the American people pay for this embassy and work in the flesh for America first.
That's what we should be doing America.
Priscilla segued back into this conversation that looks like a reconciliation approaches can be utilized for the PPP is not can be included in this covert relief. You were hearing from people all over the country want talk to is 800-684-3110 David Scully from Tennessee David Groner West Virginia is now probably the last 10 years become the one of the greatest states in the country and I can imagine Bob people of West Virginia are putting up.
I think you may be the most important person I state Senate right now posted SME we have the audio from employees.
Yet we just got some so I mean I Joe mansion has been very concerned about this process. He does not like it going this way, and he wanted a negotiated deal, bipartisan deal. He did not want this one-way ticket. West Virginians need the help and some other small businesses that one Kemal Harris. The vice President took it upon herself to coming to West Virginia to make partisan statements and he said I know she was coming here. I didn't even know she was there to do that.
That's not the way I intend to work. I want to work on a bipartisan basis, so there was an intraparty strife just a few days ago. I'm sure you recall that incident Joe mansion is not interested in that he is has become a pivotal figure in this fine price tag on it with the needs of the people are basically how we keep the economy going public key people basically ready for this economy to come back and to be part of itself. If it's 1.9 trillion Soviet if it's a little smaller than that defined the targeted need to do to be bipartisan so if they think it is going to basically work on it for all caution to the wind and and just shove it down so that's not going to happen. I think you know you follow the policies to lighting matches revoke a difficult line, but I think he's being clear does not like the way this is going, or in Arizona where Christensen is. I think you incredibly responsibility over the next two years to make sure that both of these senators understand what's at stake. We cannot have a slide toward socialism mansion is saying is he doesn't want that the US government to become the entity that just gives away money greatly. He wants to be responsible.

Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ broadcast. We take calls from you. 1-800-684-3110 were focusing on a lot of issues that I would talk about Germany. We talked about PPP, we read that which is the payroll protection plan we talked about this reconciliation approach as relates to the stimulus package we talked about pro-life case were going to have a major brief on tomorrow's broadcast were to be talking about pro-life case go to trial that the ACLJ has so we know that there's a lot of work to be done in your calls are important.
We want to hear from you. 1-800-684-3110.
What are the issues that are most concerning to you right now so give us a call 800-684-3110 let's go to Roberts calling from Ohio on line 1 line 6. Excuse me, Robert, go ahead during the thank you for taking my call. I do appreciate it. You, on your program are talking about this PPP program and we have a son that has a small business in the first time that came out and helping to weather the storm. They don't get some sort help at this time. Not sure Sherry can be able to make it hanging on by his fingernails and is my masculine well he's in a pool business genitals pool commercial primarily and I hear that the government is can be supporting California and New York to bail them out when this could go to small business.
It makes no sense to me. I don't know where the uproar there needs to be enough for this month people the basic Joe's in this country need to stand up and say this is not what you get that you got 50,000,000,411.
The final number comes out and he to be about 16 or 12 to 16 probably up to 20 billion. If you really count the number of people eerily illegally, that would actually get actually receive a check is a stimulus relief.
And like I said I'm I'm all in favor of some kind of pathways to citizenship or some kind of legal status to get these people in our taxpaying system because elves were just praying for, but that this is misplaced. But the reality is you're not born 30 to 40 people.
That's not that I have ever you've got to get you. We have to be realist about this wow how they got here is immaterial.
Now they got there here, but they've got to be put on the tax rolls, and they have to be paying taxes and there's got to be withholding and there's got to be five and all these contributions and they don't and shouldn't be getting free handouts the government over people like the caller from Ohio Sun Belt pool was on the PPP who is not on the is not to get that because the Biden administration is not pushing that so-called American rescue program. I want to know why not you want.
So why does the government is giving it, giving funds away from abortion failed states, undocumented individuals, but not people actually need assistance and it's not that these other people thought that these people are here legally don't need assistance, just a priority issue and maybe would say you know will give you the $1400 check registered to burrito and start paying taxes that make them my handout take my child really appreciate all you guys do.
Thanks education business in Brentwood and we did PPP last year and it got through we used it for payroll. We People working and it worked great for us house business. Now Scott well work were down income or were keeping our school going.
But you were down obviously with everything.
It's been going on. We got some of the kids coming in person summer working remote that work you know try to do the best we can.
PPP for having employees you have 1515 teachers that this is exactly this is exactly the backbone of American industry. These are the businesses that keep the American economy going.
I mean, this is not met since this is not rocket science.
Scott's business is the perfect example of what we should be providing relief for which is totally absent completely void does not exist in the plan being put forward by the Democrats here and the Republicans are saying we need that in there, but the Democrats I know we need to give you 350 billion $450 billion to the states. Another 16 or $20 billion to people that are here illegally and Scott's business cannot apply for PPP because there is none. That's more getting this backwards and you know we use the story of the restaurant Atlanta the other day. This is a landmark restaurant been there for 100 years. For generations of people of God. I know I know in my own family. At least four generations of our family know and your family to have been at the been around forever to go fund me page. Because of the situation of not being able to operate and they didn't do this until very late in the year so they think they got the PPP that still is difficult for them, but at least he kept on going and then business is slowly coming back really slowly and they did it go fund me page Andy to get stay in business to go fund me page this restaurant. If you say has been in Atlanta for generations and generations go fund me page that raise the hundred thousand dollars.
People suddenly became aware that were going to lose the restaurant and it's going to be at Atlanta landmark with talk about gone with the wind literally gone with the wind in Atlanta but they save themselves and we patronize them and people patronize them. You don't go inside as much. There's a lot of take-out, but at least it's funded toward what is middle America. I desire that caller general call from Brentwood, Tennessee. That is middle America. I thought Biden was going to help middle America doesn't seem like he's doing it, Mitch McConnell, by the way just went to the fungus was on the floor of the Senate and look people complaining about Mitch but listen I know Mitch McConnell. I work with. Believe me, it worked with Mitch McConnell on Senate impeachment and other matters. This is a guy that knows the Senate listen to what he just said on the record about whether taxpayers should sign checks for early November whether Democrats should raise taxes on small and Alyssa start pricing and what a generous federal funding should pour into school districts where the unions refuse to let schools of and this is just a small cut. I heard the Chicago Mayor today Chicago a Democratic city police teachers unions get back to work. These kids have not been in the classroom in over a year and there's the CDC said is no indication that this is grading of increased health risk mapping the first initiative that is baked eggs vaccinated all of the teachers and got all these kids back to school but then it another thing I can go back to school and they won't do it and that and is working to give money to schools and he that I'm really a minute here that aren't even open so you think the requirement should be.
We will give you economic relief of your school that's operating yeah I would think that would make sense.
That's what the Democrats propose that because it makes sense you don't get money if you're nonfunctioning. The union should be doing what I say that down and that is teachers get back into the classroom. The virtual learning is a wonderful thing but there's no set to the way that it was done to me in the county Florida schools in 1950 sit in that chair and learn from that feature be present today.
