  • >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY, WE'RE HERE WITH SENATE MAJORITY

  • LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER.

  • WELL, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE BIG BOLD CHANGE THAT MAY BE COMING

  • TO THE SENATE, THE UNITED STATES IS A REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY.

  • THE SENATE MIGHT BE THE LEAST REPRESENTATIVE PART OF THAT

  • GOVERNMENT BECAUSE 45 MILLION MORE PEOPLE ARE REPRESENTED BY

  • ONLY 50% OF THE SENATORS.

  • THE DEMOCRATS REPRESENT 45 MILLION MORE PEOPLE THAN THE

  • REPUBLICANS.

  • THE FILIBUSTER IS THE LEAST DEMOCRATIC ASPECT OF OUR LEAST

  • DEMOCRATIC PART OF OUR GOVERNMENT.

  • ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE CHANGES TO IT BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE

  • EVERYBODY INCLUDING JOE MANCHON SEEMS TO BE OKAY OF THE IDEA OF

  • AT LEAST CHANGING WITH THE FILIBUSTER MEANS.

  • >> YEAH, WELL LET ME SAY THIS, WHAT UNITES OUR CAUCUS FROM ONE

  • END TO THE OTHER IS WE NEED BIG BOLD CHANGE.

  • THE QUESTION IS HOW TO GO ABOUT GETTING IT DONE.

  • WHAT IS THE PREFERENCE?

  • THAT REPUBLICANS JOIN US, THAT MAYBE WHAT THEY DID IN ARP IS NO

  • LONGER THE CASE, AND WE WILL GIVE THEM A CHANCE, PUT THINGS

  • ON THE FLOOR, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF MY COLLEAGUES THAT STAY LET'S

  • GIVE THEM A CHANCE.

  • BUT IF THEY VOTE NO LIKE THEY DID ON THE ARP WHICH, DON'T LET

  • THAT STOP IT.

  • >> Stephen: I WILL TAKE IT AS A DEF YES IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

  • >> OUR CAUCUS IS GOING TO COME TOGETHER AND FIGURE OUT THE BEST

  • WAY TO GET CHANGE, BUT FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.

  • CHANGE WE MUST.

  • >> Stephen: HOW MUCH HOPE DO YOU HAVE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO

  • GET TEN REPUBLICANS TO COME OVER FOR HR-1, THE VOTING RIGHTS

  • BILL?

  • >> LET'S EXPLAIN, CAN I EXPLAIN WHAT IT IS TO PEOPLE BECAUSE

  • IT'S SO IMPORTANT.

  • IT STRENGTHENS OUR DEMOCRACY, DARK MONEY THAT COMES IN, AND

  • CASCADES IN FROM SPECIAL INTERESTS, CHANGES

  • REAPPORTIONMENT BUT THE BIGGEST CHANGE, THE MOST IMPORTANT

  • CHANGE IS IN VOTING RIGHTS, THERE HAS BEEN A NEW EFFORT BY

  • REPUBLICAN LEGISLATURES THOUGHT THE COUNTRY TO SUPPRESS THE VOTE

  • AFTER THE ELECTION SINCE THEY LOST.

  • INSTEAD OF DOING WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO IN A DEMOCRACY,

  • FIGURE OUT WHAT WENT WRONG AND WIN OVER SOME VOTERS THEY WANT

  • TO STOP THE PEOPLE THAT VOTED AGAINST THEM FROM VOTING.

  • HERE IS ONE OF THE TWO EXAMPLES WHICH PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT.

  • IN GEORGIA THEY HAVE SOMETHING CALLED SOULS TO THE POLLS WHERE

  • PEOPLE, AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITIES AFTER CHURCH GET IN

  • BUSES AND THEY GO TO THE POLLS AND VOTE.

  • THERE IS EARLY VOTING, I THINK IT IS THREE WEEKS BEFORE THE

  • ELECTION.

  • BUT THEY GO ON SUNDAY.

  • THE GEORGIA LEGISLATURE HAS DECIDED TO KNOCK OUT EARLY

  • VOTING JUST ON SUNDAY.

  • THAT IS RACIST.

  • THAT SAUL THERE IS TO IT.

  • AND SOME OTHER PLACES, THEY WANT TO SAY, TO HAVE AN ABSENTEE

  • BALLOT, YOU CAN'T GET TO THE POLLS, YOU NEED A NOTARY TO COME

  • TO YOUR HOUSE, WHAT POOR PERSON IS GOING TO DO THAT.

  • SO THIS IS DESPICABLE.

  • SCRKS-1 WOULD UNDO IT AND ALLOW THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TO UNDO

  • IT.

  • WE HAVE TO PASS IT.

  • >> Stephen: MITCH MCCONNELL SAID ON THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE

  • THAT IF Y'ALL CHANGE THE FILIBUSTER, THERE WILL BE

  • SCORCHED EARTH OF THE KIND THAT NO ONE PRESENTLY SITTING IN THE

  • SENATE HAS EVER SEEN.

  • WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE MORE SCORCHED EARTH THAN THE WAY

  • MITCH McCONNELL HAS JUST RUN ROUGH SHOD FOR THE PAST FOUR TO

  • EIGHT YEARS, REALLY?

  • I MEAN ISN'T HE THREATENING THAT IF YOU DO THIS MITCH McCONNELL

  • WILL CONTINUE TO BE MITCH McCONNELL?

  • >> YEAH, WE USED TO CALL THE SENATE WHEN HE WAS IN CHARGE THE

  • LEGISLATIVE GRAVE YARD.

  • THE HOUSE WOULD SEND OVER GOOD BILLS THAT HAD A LOT OF POPULAR

  • SUPPORT.

  • HE MIGHT OPPOSE THEM, FAIR ENOUGH BUT HE WOULDN'T EVEN PUT

  • THEM ON THE FLOOR FOR A VOTE.

  • McMITCH CON EL IS SO AFRAID FOR OF THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN

  • THAT HE KEEPS LOOKING FOR DIE VERSIONS, ONE AFTER THE OTHER.

  • AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM.

  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE DIVERTED.

  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE DE TERRED.

  • WE'RE GOING TO GO FORWARD BECAUSE WE KNOW THE AMERICAN

  • PEOPLE DE MANLD, NEED, WANT BOLD CHANGE.

  • AND WE'RE GOING TO DO IT, AND MITCH MCCONNELL CAN DO ALL THE

  • THREATENING AND BLUSTER HE WANTS.

  • IT'S NOT GOING TO STOP US.

  • >> Stephen: IS IT EMPTY, COULD HE GRIND THINGS TO A HALT AS A

  • MINORITY LEADER?

  • >> LOOK, YOU KNOW, I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO GIVE HIS BLUSTERY

  • THREAT CREEDENCE.

  • WE'RE GOING TO GO FORWARD, PERIOD.

  • >> Stephen: SENATOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> NICE TO BE HERE WITH YOU, STEPHEN

  • SENATE MAJORITY LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER, EVERYBODY!

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING ACTOR

  • JARED LETO.

>> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY, WE'RE HERE WITH SENATE MAJORITY
