  • >> Stephen: JON BATISTE AND STAY HUMAN, EVERYBODY, THANK

  • YOU, JON.

  • >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK.

  • JOINING ME NOW IS THE MAN WHO HAS SPENT MORE THAN 40 YEARS

  • REPRESENTING THE STATE OF NEW YORK ON CAPITOL HILL.

  • PLEASE WELCOME SENATE MAJORITY LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER!

  • SENATOR SCHUMER, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> GOOD TO BE WITH YOU AGAIN, STEPHEN, FIRST TIME AS MAJORITY

  • LEADER.

  • >> Stephen: THAT IS TRUE, I WANT TO GET TO THAT IN JUST ONE

  • SECRETARY BUT FIRST I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE HORRIFIC VIOLENCE

  • DOWN IN ATLANTA.

  • IT IS AN UNMITIGATED TRAGEDY.

  • WHAT WORDS DO YOU HAVE FOR PEOPLE IN THE ASIAN AMERICAN

  • COMMUNITY WHO ARE FEELING INCREASINGLY THREATENED OVER THE

  • PAST YEAR, ESPECIALLY?

  • >> YEAH, WELL FIRST MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE FAMILIES OF THE

  • EIGHT WHO HAVE SUFFERED SUCH A TRAGEDY.

  • AND TO LITERALLY MILLIONS OF ASIAN AMERICANS WHO NOW WALK THE

  • TREATS WITH FEAR THAT THEY MIGHT BE THE NEXT VICTIM OF THIS KIND

  • OF ASSAULT.

  • THE ASIAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL THING IN

  • AMERICA.

  • HARDWORKING PEOPLE.

  • THEY START BUSINESSES AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS.

  • THEY'RE FAMILY ORIENTED.

  • THERE IS NOTHING MORE THAN THEY WANT THAN TO BE AMERICAN.

  • IN NEW YORK, HERE IS AN INTERESTING STATISTIC TO SHOW, 9

  • PERCENT OF THE POLICE FORCE IS ASIAN AMERICAN.

  • SO THEY ARE A WONDERFUL PEOPLE AND THEY MAKE AMERICA A FINE

  • PLACE.

  • YOU KNOW WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS, IS DONALD

  • TRUMP, WE'VE ALWAYS HAD BIGOTRY IN AMERICA, THERE SAN

  • UNDERCURRENT, SOMETIMES IT RISES TO THE SURFACE BUT DONALD TRUMP

  • HAS SORT OF, A LOT OF PEOPLE THOUGHT HE MADE IT ACCEPTABLE.

  • AND IT ROSE UP.

  • IT IS ALMOST AS IF YOU KNOW THE SUPEREGO THAT KEPT THIS BIGOTRY

  • DOWN WAS GONE.

  • AND SO IT IS WORSE THAN IT'S BEEN BEFORE.

  • WE ALL, EVERY ONE OF US HAS AN OBLIGATION TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST

  • IT.

  • TO LET OUR ASIAN AMERICAN FRIENDS KNOW WE LOVE THEM AND

  • THEY ARE PART OF US.

  • AND TO REALIZE THAT BIGOTRY AGAINST ONE IS BIGOTRY AGAINST

  • ALL.

  • I ACHE FOR THEM.

  • I ACHE, I DO.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, YOU HAVE A LOT TO GET DONE IN THIS SESSION

  • OF THE CONGRESS.

  • THE LAST TIME YOU AND I SPOKE, AS YOU POINTED OUT, YOU HAD A

  • DIFFERENT TITLE.

  • NOW YOU ARE THE MAJORITY LEADER, SECOND TIME FOR NANCY PELL OSY

  • TO BE THE SPEAKER, FIRST FOR YOU TO BE THE MAJORITY LEADER, ARE

  • YOU DRUNK WITH POWER OR STILL JUST DRUNK ON CHEESE CAKE, WHICH

  • IS IT.

  • >> YOU KNOW I LOVE JUNIOR CHEESE CAKE FROM BROOKLYN, BUT LET ME

  • TELL YOU THE REACTION I HAD WHEN I FOUND OUT I WOULD BE MAJORITY

  • LEADER.

  • YOU KNOW, EVERY ONE OF US WHO HAD WORKED FOR A VERY IMPORTANT

  • GOAL, WHETHER IT IS PERSONAL OR FAMILY OR PROFESSIONAL, CAN

  • ACHIEVE TA GOAL AFTER A LONG TREK, DE TOURS ALONG THE ROAD,

  • THEIR IMMEDIATE REACTION IS ONE OF YOURS, WOW, I GOT THIS.

  • BUT WITH ME, WITHIN A FEW MINUTES IT IS 4:30 A.M. IN THE

  • MORNING.

  • JUST AFTER THEY DECLAREED OSSOFF AND WARNOCK, THE TWO GEORGIA

  • SENATORS, I HAD A SECOND REAUCTION, OF A-WE, NO

  • APPROXIMATE NOT IN THE SENSE MY DAUGHTER USES, LIKE THAT MOVIE

  • WAS AWESOME, BUT A-WE IN THIS SENSE THAT WHEN THE ANGELS SAW

  • THE FACE OF GOD THEY TREMBLED IN A-WE.

  • AND I REALIZED RIGHT AWAY, IT HIT ME VERY HARD, QUICKER THAN I

  • THOUGHT, THE TREMENDOUS RESPONSIBILITY PLACED ON THE

  • SHOULDERS OF OUR DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY, SMALL THOUGH IT WAS.

  • AND I STILL FEEL THAT WAY.

  • WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO SHOW PEOPLE THAT THERE IS A POSITIVE

  • PATH FORWARD THAT CAN MAKE THEIR LIVES BETTER.

  • SO THEY WON'T TURN TO THE FALSE GOD OF BIGOTRY AND THE KIND OF

  • PERSON DONALD TRUMP WAS.

  • >> Stephen: LET'S TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT

  • YOU AND YOUR FELLOW REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS HAVE

  • TAKEN ON SO FAR.

  • SICK WEEKS INTO THE NEW JOB, YOU PASSED A 1.9 TRILLION DOLLAR

  • COVID RELIEF BILL.

  • BACK IN 2010 WHEN THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT WAS PASSED, NOW

  • PRESIDENT BIDEN FAMOUSLY ON A HOT MIC SAID THAT WAS, AND CBS

  • WILL BLEEP THIS, A BIG [BLEEP] DEAL.

  • WHAT THREE WORDS DESCRIBE THE RELIEF PLAN?

  • >> GAME HAS BEEN CHANGER, CHANGING A LOT OF LIVES FOR THE

  • BETTER.

  • >> Stephen: HOW DOES IT CHANGE THE GAME, I'M SORRY, SIR, WHAT

  • HAS CHANGED, HOW DOES THE GAME CHANGE?

  • >> IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

  • IT HAS DONE SO MUCH.

  • FIRST SOME OF THE IMMEDIATE THINGS THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

  • WANT, PEOPLE WILL GET THEIR 1400 DOLLAR CHECKS, MANY HAVE

  • ALREADY.

  • FOR EACH PERSON IN THE FAMILY, A FAMILY OF FOUR, MAKES BELOW

  • $150, THEY DEBT $5600.

  • THE VACCINE, THEY ARE NOW BEING ADMINISTERED A MUCH QUICKER AND

  • MORE EFFECTIVE RATE, MANY MORE PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO GET THE

  • VACCINE MUCH SEERN.

  • HOW ABOUT THIS ONE.

  • BECAUSE WE CHANGE SOMETHING CALLED THE CHILD TAX CREDIT AND

  • THE EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT, HALF THE CHILDREN IN AMERICA WHO

  • ARE IN POVERTY WILL NOT BE IN POVERTY, THAT IS AMAZING.

  • WHEN YOU ARE A CHILD AND YOU START OUT IMPOVERISHED, YOU

  • DON'T GET ADEQUATE EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE AND HOUSING.

  • AND YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU BECOME A YOUNG PERSON YOU ARE WAY BEHIND,

  • JUST BEHIND.

  • WE CAN ERADICATE THAT, THIS IS FOR ONE YEAR, CAN I HOPE WE

  • WOULD MAKE IT PERMANENT THAT WOULD CHANGE AMERICA

  • PERMANENTLY.

  • WE MADE IT EASIER FOR SCHOOLS TO OPEN.

  • THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS IN THIS BILL.

  • ONE FINAL THING THAT ENCAPSULATES IT.

  • WE DEMOCRATS BELIEVE THAT GOVERNMENT HAS TO BE A FORCE FOR

  • GOOD.

  • AND WE PROMISED WHEN WE RAN THAT WE WOULD DO THINGS THAT WOULD

  • MAKE PEOPLE'S LIVES BETTER.

  • AND AM THIS AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN WE ACTUALLY HAVE DONE THAT, AND

  • JUST ABOUT EVERY AMERICAN WILL HAVE THEIR LIVES MADE BETTER ONE

  • WAY OR ANOTHER, ALL THE THINGS I MENTIONED.

  • YOU COULD BE A RESTAURANTEUR, YOU COULD BE A NONPROFIT, YOU

  • COULD BE SOMEONE WHO IS WORRIED ABOUT YOUR PENGS, ALL OF THAT

  • HAS BEEN MADE BETTER.

  • >> Stephen: LET'S TALK ABOUT BIG BOLD CHANGE AND ALSO INCOME

  • INEQUALITY.

  • THIS WAS THE ARP, THE RESCUE PLAN WAS PASSED THROUGH BUDGET

  • RECONCILIATION FOR THE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT DON'T KNOW, THAT

  • MEANS IT DOESN'T NEED TO GET AROUND A FILIBUSTER.

  • >> RIGHT.

  • >> Stephen: CAN YOU DO THAT AGAIN?

  • THIS WAS THE 2020 BUDGET RECONCILIATION.

  • YOU'VE STILL GOT 2021, RIGHT?

  • >> YEAH, WE STILL HAVE ANOTHER ONE.

  • >> Stephen: SO YOU GET TWO, YOU GET TO DOUBLE DIP THIS YEAR,

  • IS IT GOING TO BE INFRASTRUCTURE PAID FOR WAY BIG TAX INCREASE ON

  • GUYS LIKE ME WITH A LOT OF CASH?

  • >> YEAH, WELL, WE HAVEN'T FIRMLY DECIDED BUT IT LOOKS, IT IS

  • LIKELY TO BE THE BIDEN PLAN, WHICH IS CALLED BUILD BACK

  • BETTER WHICH COMBINES A BUNCH OF THINGS.

  • NUMBER ONE, DRAMATIC INCREASE IN INFRASTRUCTURE.

  • BOTH THE TRADITIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE, BUT ALSO GREEN

  • INFRASTRUCTURE IT IS VERY CLIMATE ORIENTED.

  • SO FOR INSTANCE WE WOULD HAVE A POWER GRID THAT COULD BRING

  • SOLAR AND WIND POWER, FROM ONE END OF THE COUNTRY TO THE OTHER.

  • I HAVE MADE A PROPOOS-- PROPOSAL WHICH BIDEN HAS ACCEPTED THAT WE

  • ENCOURAGE, GREATLY ENCOURAGE ELECTRIC CARS WHICH DON'T

  • POLLUTE AS OPPOSED TO THE INTERNAL COME BUST SHON ENGINE,

  • SO AN INFRASTRUCTURE, IN A DIFFERENT WAY TOO, BROADBAND.

  • YOU KNOW FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT SAID IN THE 30S THAT EVERY HOME

  • SHOULD HAVE ELECTRICITY, IT WAS A NECESSITY.

  • WELL, HIGH-SPEED INTERNET IS A NECESSITY NOW.

  • BUT TOO MANY HOMES IN RURAL AMERICA AND WE HAVE TO INCLUDE

  • RURAL AMERICA IN WHAT WE TRY TO DO, AND IN THE INNER CITY DON'T

  • HAVE INTERNET.

  • OUR PROPOSAL WOULD SAY EVERY HOME SHOULD GET IT.

  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK, SENATOR, STICK

  • AROUND, WHEN WE COME BACK, I WILL ASK CHUCK SCHUMER ABOUT

  • MITCH McCONNELL'S THREAT TO UNLEASH SCORCHED EARTH IF THEY

  • CHANGE THE FILIBUSTER.

>> Stephen: JON BATISTE AND STAY HUMAN, EVERYBODY, THANK
