>> TONIGHT, THE SENATE IS NO CLOSER TO A DEAL ON RELIEF, AS MILLIONS UPON POLLS OF AMERICANS FACE THE THREAT OF LOSING THEIR HOMES AND THE $2400 IN UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS JOINING ME NOW, SENATE DEMOCRATIC LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER

GREAT TO HAVE YOU, SENATOR >> THANKS, CHRIS >> I BELIEVE YOU WERE IN THE NEGOTIATIONS THIS AFTERNOON, WHICH I THINK WAS THE FIRST ROUND CAN YOU JUST GIVE US AN UPDATE OF WHERE THINGS STAND? >> YEAH, FIRST THE REPUBLICANS ARE, AS YOU SAY, IN TOTAL CHAOS THEY’VE BEEN IN CHAOS FOR MONTHS

THAT’S WHY THEY COULDN’T GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND WERE UP TO THESE CLIFFS WHERE PEOPLE LOSE UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, MAY BE KICKED OUT OF THEIR HOMES, DON’T HAVE MONEY TO FEED THEIR KIDS IT’S JUST A DISGRACE WHAT THEIR BILL DOES THERE ARE SO MANY NEEDS HERE HERE’S THE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM, CHRIS THIS IS THE GREATEST ECONOMIC CRISIS WE’VE HAD IN 75 YEARS, SINCE THE DEPRESSION

THE GREATEST HEALTH CRISIS IN A HUNDRED YEARS YOU NEED THE GOVERNMENT TO HELP BUT OUR REPUBLICAN FRIENDS ON THE HARD RIGHT SAY ONLY THE PRIVATE SECTOR SHOULD BE INVOLVED, AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR, EVEN ON ITS OWN ADMISSION, CAN’T SOLVE THIS SO THEY END UP WITH THIS HORRIBLE BILL THAT FAVORS CORPORATE INTERESTS HOW ABOUT THIS

THEY WANT TO GIVE A BREAK, A TAX BREAK FOR THE THREE MARTINI LUNCH, BUT NO MORE MONEY FOR FOOD STAMPS AND PEOPLE TO FEED THEIR FOLKS THEY WANT A $30 BILLION CUSHION FOR THE DEFENSE INDUSTRY, AND NO MONEY, NO CUSHION FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO LOSE THEIR HOMES THEY PUT IN THERE THIS BOONDOGGLE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP, $2 BILLION, SO THAT HE DOESN’T HAVE TO COMPETE NEXT TO ANOTHER HOTEL AND TELL WORKERS THEY SHOULD TAKE A 30% PAY CUT, EVEN WHEN THEY’VE LOST — EXCUSE ME — EVEN WHEN THEY’VE LOST THEIR JOB THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN THIS IS A GIVE AWAY TO CORPORATE INTERESTS

WE DEMOCRATS ARE STANDING FIRM WE KNOW THE NEEDS ARE REAL WE KNOW THE NEEDS ARE DEEP WE KNOW WORKING PEOPLE NEED HELP, AND WE ARE GOING TO FIGHT FOR THE VERY STRONG AND VERY BOLD BILL THAT THE HOUSE PASSED, CALLED THE HERO’S ACT >> SO IT SEEMS TO ME THAT McCONNELL HAS TELEGRAPHED SOMETHING ABOUT HIS PRIORITIES FROM THE BEGINNING

HE CARES ABOUT ONE THING, AND THAT’S LIABILITY HE WANTS ENDEM ANYNY FI CASE FOR EMPLOYERS, HOSPITALS I DON’T THINK HE CARES ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE, HE LAID THAT OUT VERY CLEAR TODAY TAKE A LISTEN TO WHAT HE HAD TO SAY >> THERE IS NO CHANCE, ZERO CHANCE AMERICA CAN GET BACK TO NORMAL WITHOUT THE CORNYN LIABILITY PROTECTION

AND NO BILL PUT ON THE SENATE FLOOR THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE IT >> WELL, THAT’S AMAZING >> IS THIS LIABILITY PROTECTION LANGUAGE ACCEPTABLE TO YOU? >> NOT AT ALL IT IS SO EXTREME McCONNELL SAID WE NEED THINGS NOT EXTRANEOUS TO COVID

YOU KNOW WHAT’S IN THIS BILL? NO MEDICAL MALPRACTICE SUITS UNTIL 2024 EVEN IF THEY’RE NOT COVID RELATED WHAT IT SAYS IS, IF ABN EMPLOYER — >> WAIT A SECOND, WAIT A SECOND, REALLY? >> THAT’S IN THE BILL, YES IT’S IN THE BILL IT’S AMAZING

THIS IS A KFX-STREET, CORPORATE LAWYER WISH LIST OF COURSE IT’S NOT GOING TO PASS WHEN HE SAYS NO BILL WILL COME ON THE FLOOR WITHOUT THIS EXTREME BILL, MAYBE HE DOESN’T WANT ANYTHING TO PASS, BUT WE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO KEEP PUSHING TO GET SOMETHING DONE, BECAUSE IT’S SO IMPORTANT BUT HIS BILL IS EXTREME TO THE NTH >> HERE’S THE THING ABOUT THE LEVERAGE

IF McCONNELL DOESN’T CARE ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, HALF HIS CAUCUS, BEN SAS CAME OUT, LYNNDIE GRALINDH LINDSEY GRAHAM SAYING HALF THE CAUCUS WON’T VOTE FOR IT YOU’RE A MINORITY CAUCUS IN THE SENATE, AND COMBINED WITH THE HOUSE SHOULD HAVE ALL THE LEVERAGE HERE, BECAUSE THEY’RE GOING TO COUNT ON YOUR CAUCUS TO PASS THIS >> YEAH, WELL, OBVIOUSLY WE DON’T HAVE A MAJORITY IN THE SENATE AND WE CAN’T PASS IT ALONE BUT WE HAVE A LOT OF LEVERAGE, AND WE’RE GOING TO USE IT WE’RE GOING TO FIGHT HARD SO THAT STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS GET THE CLOSE TO TRILLION DOLLARS THEY NEED

WE’RE GOING FIGHT HARD SO THERE’S HERO’S PAY WE’RE GOING TO FIGHT HARD SO THERE’S MONEY FOR THE POST OFFICE, SO THAT PEOPLE CAN VOTE FAIRLY AND VOTE BY MAIL AND THERE ARE AMPLE POLLING PLACES WE HAVE A LOT OF LEVERAGE, AND WE AIN’T AFRAID TO USE IT >> BUT HERE IS THE ASELL TRY THAT I ALWAYS SEE WHEN I WATCH THESE NEGOTIATIONS IT DOES SEEM TO ME THAT THERE ARE A FAIR AMOUNT OF REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO JUST DON’T CARE IF THIS PASSES OR NOT

A LOT OF THEM THINK THIS YEAR IS A WASH ANY WAY THEY WANT TO BE THE ONES THAT STOOD UP AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT I THINK DEMOCRATS DO CARE I THINK DEMOCRATS OF THE HOUSE CARE AND YOU CARE, BECAUSE YOU CARE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS TO PEOPLE >> THE WORKING PEOPLE

WE DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO LOSE THEIR JOBS, LOSE THEIR BUSINESSES, NOT FEED THEIR KIDS OF COURSE WE CARE WE HAVE TO WE’RE DEMOCRATS WE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE

BUT THAT — BUT AT THIS POINT IN TIME, SINCE THEY’RE IN SUCH DISARRAY, THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT MAY WANT THINGS ARE PEOPLE WHO GOT THE CORPORATE WISH LIST WE HAVE LEVERAGE IN THE LAST THREE BILLS, THE SAME THING HAPPENED MITCH McCONNELL SAID LET’S DO VERY LITTLE WE DEMOCRATS SAID NO

AND THEY WERE FORCED TO COME BACK TO THE TABLE AND WE GOT MOST OF WHAT WE WANTED THE PERSON WHO SHOULD REALLY WANT SOMETHING TO HAPPEN IS TRUMP BECAUSE IF THE ECONOMY GOES TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET, WHICH IT WILL DO IF WE DON’T PASS ANYTHING, HE IS FINISHED IF THAT HAPPENS >> BUT THIS IS WHAT IS SO BIZARRO WORLD ABOUT THE ENTIRE DYNAMIC HERE I DON’T GET IT

>> I DON’T EITHER THEY DON’T — >> IF YOU’RE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS, YOU SHOULD BE RAINING TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS DOWN, BECAUSE IT’S THE LAST HOPE FOR ANYTHING POLITICALLY >> HERE’S WHAT THEY THINK LET THEM EAT CAKE THEY HAVE SO MANY — THIS IS AN ARTICLE IN "THE DAILY NEWS" AND HAS A PICTURE OF McCONNELL, LET THEM EAT CAKE

THEY ARE SO ENTHRALLED BY THE RIGHT WING IDEAL LOGS, THAT SAY DON’T SPEND ANY MONEY, SO IT IS BIZARRE IT IS TOTALLY BIZARRE BUT THEY ARE TOTALLY AT WAR WITH THEMSELVES WHEN WE HAVE NEGOTIATIONS, McCONNELL WON’T EVEN SHOW UP >> HE WASN’T IN THE ROOM TODAY, RIGHT? >> NOPE

HE WAS NOT HE WAS NOT >> WHAT IS UP — I JUST DON’T GET — BASICALLY McCONNELL — >> HE’S GOT — >> YOU RUN THE SENATE BUT I DON’T — >> HE’S GOT A CAUCUS, AS YOU SAID, LINDSEY GRAHAM, ROY BLUNT, WHO SAID 25 OF THEM DON’T WANT TO VOTE FOR ANYTHING WE HAVE THE GREATEST CRISIS IN AMERICA, IN HEALTH AND THE ECONOMY THAT WE HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME WE HAVE THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF UNEMPLOYED SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION, AND THEIR HANDS ARE TIED SO THEY CAN’T DO ANYTHING

IT IS UTTERLY PATHETIC IT WOULD BE LAUGHABLE, EXCEPT SO MUCH IS AT STAKE, BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE HURTING AND NEED THESE BENEFITS PEOPLE NEED THAT $600 UNEMPLOYMENT PEOPLE NEED HELP SO THEY CAN FEED THEIR KIDS, RUN THEIR SMALL BUSINESSES, AND WE’RE GOING THE FIGHT TO GET IT FOR THEM

>> FINAL QUESTION, YOU JUST SAID EVICTION THE EVICTION MORATORIUM FOR RENTERS IN FHA BACKED PROPERTIES, THERE’S A FORECLOSURE MORATORIUM, AS WELL THE EVICTION MORATORIUM IS RUNNING OUT, THERE’S 20 MILLION PEOPLE WHO ARE SUBJECT TO THAT HOW IMPORTANT IS THAT IN THIS ROUND? IS THAT DO OR DIE FOR YOU? >> VERY IMPORTANT WHAT WE PROPOSED IS BETTER THAN JUST EXTENDING THE MORATORIUM, WHERE PEOPLE STILL OWE RENT

SO IF THERE’S A THREE-MONTH MORATORIUM, WE STILL OWE THREE MONTHS WE PROPOSED $100 BILLION TO HELP PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR INCOME THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN PAY THEIR RENT SOME OF THESE LAND LORDS ARE BIG SHOTS SOME ARE LIKE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD, IT’S A THREE FAMILY HOUSE, THE LANDLORDS ARE ON THE TOP FLOOR, AND THEY NEED MONEY TO HELP PAY FOR THE HEAT AND ELECTRICITY SO WE PROPOSE $100 BILLION

WHAT IS ADEQUATE, JUST RIGHT, THAT THE EXPERTS SAY, TO HELP PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR INCOMES, PAY THEIR RENT, SO
