♪ >> you are even more beautiful to me now, because it is the real you. >> this is it isn't it? this is the real -- >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> yes. >> stephanie: oh, you don't want that. the president yesterday. >> obama: if congress lets middle class tax goes up economists will tell you that
means people will spend nearly $200 billion less than they otherwise would spend. consumer spending is going to go down. >> stephanie: if only we had someone we loved from congress to tell us where we are now. oh, look it's rocking congressman jan schakowsky. good morning congresswoman. >> hello stephanie. >> stephanie: it's hard to tell what is going on. the headlines are neither side giving ground. the president just won his second landslide. what do they not get about that? >> yeah, he is only the sixth president in history that has won consecutive elections with a real majority 51%. >> stephanie: yeah. >> no, we're holding the cards, though, stephanie. this is okay. >> stephanie: right. >> because -- this is not a
sequel to the last time when they held us hostage and we had to give up more than we wanted to because we wanted to overt total disaster with the debt ceiling. this is a different situation, and the republicans, one by one, it seems are starting to wake up and realize that -- you know, this is a really bad platform for them. let's go to the mat for the richest americans, and then let's cut medicare and we'll threaten to complete financial disaster over the debt ceiling. that is wildly unpopular in the country. >> stephanie: yep. representative i want to get your take because obviously the white house has signaled -- and i understand the issues involved, but i'm wondering too why don't we just over -- it's note really a cliff, right? because obviously that's where our leverage is is these rates
will go up anyway, and you can fix things in a couple of weeks with a new congress can't you? >> yes, that's right. but it would be better not to, you know, create the situation of having all of these things -- a lot of things expire at the end of the year. i mean it would be much better if like sensible people we would sit down before a deadline and figure out how to do this, in an equitable, in an equitable way. it seems as if the republicans in their caucus in the house of representatives, are unable to be sensible, and john boehner more than anything, the numbers that he is looking at -- that's the numbers that it takes for him to keep his gavel. >> stephanie: yeah. >> they are biting at each other right now. i guess it's like 17 votes and
they could oust him and there are people wanting to do that because he is too weak kneed. i think that's the problem is the republicans are in disarray. >> stephanie: absolutely. and you are one of our progressive war records and what makes us nervous on our side is why are we talking about taking a rate that is less than 39%? why are we talking about making concessions at thissing point? >> i don't know that the president is talk about medicare eligibility age. that would be a total disaster. >> stephanie: yeah. >> it would actually ending cost -- could end up costing us more to do that. >> stephanie: i agree. >> and certainly in terms of human health it would be really really a bad idea. i'm going to spend my week talking to my democratic friends to make sure everybody really understands how bad it would be
and how unnecessary it would be to raise the age of medicare eligibility. but i agree with you, i don't think we ought to settle for any number less than what it was under the clinton years. >> stephanie: that's right. >> that was the most prosperous time in the united states of america in recent history, and we don't need to do that. we don't want to start negotiating with ourselves here. but first we have to have a significant call from the republicans that they are serious. i love when they say, oh the president serious. really? he put a very detailed proposal on the table. we are very serious about that. >> stephanie: i love how they are acting like they still have leverage in public. like they are holding all of the cards here. >> none. they really don't have -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> and the main card that they fail to hold is any support from
the american people. >> stephanie: yeah. >> the vast number of americans say, yes, the wealthiest ought to pay more. duh. they also do not cut medicare. these will even tea partiers, they don't want the benefits to be cut. >> stephanie: they are looking at the same poll you and i are that the republicans would take the vast majority of the blame. the polling couldn't be clearer. so where do they go from here. what i have heard is they are going to cave it's just a question of when. >> i know we're going to go another week. we were supposed to be out this week, so they extended it another week extended their own pain another week, really, so maybe they are -- they are trying to get there, but if they
don't, then january 3rd or whatever that's when we are sworn in, then we can actually get this done. this is not going to be the apocalypse if we don't get it done by december 31st. i don't understand why we don't see that. tom cole who is my favorite republican, and a sensible guy -- no, he really -- he really is a friend of mine -- >> stephanie: right. >> because he -- he gets it. he is a conservative republican but he is also very, very practical, and pretty close to john boehner, so i don't know if that's in part kind of a message that -- from that sector of the republican conference. >> stephanie: right. you are talking about a lot of the republicans that are sayings publicly we need to give in on
the tax revenues. >> yeah, tom cole said come on everybody agrees on this. minimally we all agree that middle class -- up to $250,000 income ought to be taxed at this lower level. so, you know, let's go. >> stephanie: right. right. i mean -- we were talking about this before we had you on. the one thing that makes me laugh is boehner claiming his own election mandate for a republican majority in the white house, when everyone understands redistricting at this point, don't they in >> oh, absolutely. this idea that this was a status quo election. is he the only person that hasn't noticed -- i'm trying to end gloating. >> stephanie: i have made no such efforts, but you go ahead. >> in certain places --
[ dog barking ] >> oh, there's my dogs. they are gloating too. those are my dogs gloating. >> stephanie: what kind of dogs and what are their names? >> lucky and buddy. >> stephanie: oh that's so disney movie. >> and they are golden retrievers. >> stephanie: oh. okay. go ahead. your point was what? >> my point was, i forgot. >> stephanie: lucky and buddy filibustered you. >> they are trying to minimize the fact that the president won the election that we made gains in the house; that the senate is more democratic, and that the american people are fed up with gridlock. they are fed up. >> stephanie: yeah, absolutely. and the white house obviously was defending keeping these talking private. our interest is reaching an rag agreement and not trying to
negotiate an agree through the media. i think that is right. >> the markets -- i don't know how sensible they'll be in we go to january 1st, but maybe that will be the kind of impetus that will bring the republicans to their senses. i -- it's true however, obviously, if some real progress had been made i think that we might have heard something better or more explicit from the president that says we're not reading out details of the conversation, but the lines of communication remain open. to me that means they really haven't made any progress. so i'm glad that they are talking, but i -- you know, we'll see this week. i don't know. >> stephanie: it means boehner still has his number but if the president answers and he is
talking, talking talking the president is like okay thank for calling. >> stephanie: representative you know one of my favorite memories of you, is you doing back spring down the street during the gay pride parade. >> oh yeah. >> stephanie: are you nervous about doma and marriage equality? what do you think? >> everyone is taking bet of which or both the supreme court will uphold. i think doma will not be the law of the land when the supreme court is -- is done. that was a -- a bad mistake at the time. but i have never seen -- i have to tell you, steph -- an issue move so quickly.
the culture wars are over -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> -- our team won and the congress of the united states is unrepresentative of what the american people in general feel. i don't want to over state this. i know in some communities and even maybe in some states the majority may think -- may think otherwise, but the time is gone when nobody -- when anybody can think they don't know anybody gay; that there's no gay people in their family. it's just incredible. >> stephanie: rob reiner was on with us yesterday, and said this is it. we are at the tipping point of this civil right's battle of our generation. so we'll see. >> what do you think? >> stephanie: i'm very positive. we talked to chris perry and rob reiner yesterday, and they were both very optimistic so i'm going to go with that. >> i'm going with you on that.
okay. >> stephanie: all right. get your sneakers ready for next year's parade. >> okay. >> stephanie: congress women jan schakowsky thank you so much. >> thank you, stephanie.

"the advocate." good morning jewels. >> hi, good morning. >> stephanie: good morning. i'm sure you have heard what scalia said of all of the things i have heard gay being compared to, murder that is a new one. >> it is a knew one. unfortunately i don't know that it is the first time that someone has probably made that comparison, but for someone on the court, i do believe that that is a first. >> stephanie: he is a disgrace in my opinion. i couldn't believe during even the affordable fair arguments, late rally they were talk points from someone you would hear on right-wing radio. >> uh-huh. very shocking comments yes. >> stephanie: but you have to wonder if they may be part of the way -- when you look at the way john roberts ruled, because he doesn't want this court to be
seen as hyperpartisan. now do you think this is going to play out? >> i would say that it is a moment probably that brings more apprehension for lbgt advocates than maybe on the surface. i don't know with other people that you have talked to that the feel is one of outright euphoria and enthusiasm for the court to be looking at this question. particularly in the proposition 8 case. i think feel more nervous about that prospect than they may have been letting on, and i think the comments from justice scalia give you an indication as to why. so there is a lot at steak. and adding those remarks into the mix serve to highlight the issues that exist.
>> stephanie: one thing that is interesting, you know, the story i was just doing. in 2003 justist scalia saw gay in the sodomy case. he said basically this opens the door to gay marriage, and i think he is right. >> uh-huh. and you also mentioned justice roberts. you do have to consider his concern for his legacy here. i think as he matures as a chief justice in looking down the road, there is the question of where is this court going to be in history with him as the chief justice. so reigning in those comments and where the court will be in history will be a concern for him. >> stephanie: julie i talked to rob reiner chris perry, and
sandy steer yesterday, all of whom are really optimistic. where are you on it? >> you know, as i said you know, i kind of -- i get a lot of information from the people i talk to. my feeling is the front feeling, which is the optimism and the good face, and the positive face, and the positive foot forward, but i think if we go back to when the case was first filed -- this is the challenge to proposition eight. there was a really significant internal debate with some legal advocates saying that is not the way we want to go. but in the meantime i think more progress has hand on the state level. so what was a hesitancy of having the court ever look at the question was tempered somewhat by all of the developments that have happened more quickly than anyone thought
in the past year year and a half, and now they are still looking at the question. >> stephanie: yeah the too far, too fast argument is some made about roe v. wade and all of that. but this is happening at record pace, more so than i think any civil rights battle. somebody made the point it was because -- more and more people obviously have learned that they know somebody gay, whereas obviously they were saying that the civil rights movement you didn't suddenly discover someone is black. >> right. >> stephanie: but i think as you say they do look at politics, look at the same polling we have, and look at the arc of history, and say a kennedy has the chance to do the brown versus board of education of our time. >> sure.
we don't know who voted to take up the proposition 8 case, right? at least four justices have to be supportive of the coming on board. could it have been for liberal justices thinking that kennedy, the presumed swing vote might be with them or those opposed to marriage equality presuming that kennedy might be with them. but i think that the court despite being above the fray, as it were it interacted with the political realities and the world, so it is standoffish but it cannot help being effected from those around us. >> stephanie: not only it is repulsive what scalia said it makes no legal sense?
i'm seeing less and less legal reasoning for ruling against equal rights, aren't you? >> i think so. and i think what is most potentially chilling about the marks is you say regardless of what he may think, but what does that tell us about what he thinks and the fact he will be looking at these cases, and we're talking in particular about the proposition 8 case. but then what does it tell us about what is going through a justice's mind when that kind of remark is said. >> stephanie: i think what it goes to is what we have stumbled on. with murder it is pretty clear what the harm is. they could not prove what the harm is here. right? where is the harm? >> it makes some people feel
oogy. >> stephanie: right. is feeling oogy is ale basis? >> exactly. and that was a rational used in nevada when there was a challenge against that in federal district court, and the judge upheld the ban, and that has now gone to appeal, and i think the people who want to uphold the constitutional amendment have appealed to the supreme court already last week. and the ruling was people who are heterosexual couples may be less inclined to get, you know, married if they know that the institution is open to same-sex couple. >> stephanie: you sort of implied it julie, but you are much more hopeful about doma. a lot of people i have heard think that is a slam dunk. >> i wouldn't go far as to say that, because with the court we have to be open to anything.
when a justice makes remarks such as had happened recently so what they are thinking about what they will ultimately do, anything can happen. it's only because of the two, federal appeals court rulings, and then i think -- you know one can also find it very interesting because the court will also be presented with question of the level of scrutiny that laws that affect gay and lesbian people should be subjected to. in this case the judges in the second circuit said you have to heighten that scrutiny. you better have a very very strong reason when you have a law that discriminates against gay and lesbian people. so we may come to the supreme court weighing in on that very important question. >> stephanie: okay. i'm happy clappy is my normal state, and i remain happy clappy about this although that was
after several phone calls to rob and michelle reiner. are we there yet? >> yes. it has been a great amount of work and as ted ohlson told reporters last week it is gratifying. >> stephanie: when i read his piece in news week the conservative piece for gay marriage, that's where i thought we crossed the tipping point, and when i was reading this week somebody wrote the religious case for gay americans, roman catholics, protestants are for it now. >> yes. >> stephanie: julie always great to talk to you, thanks so much. and we'll check in as this rollings along. >> i think mixed feelings is what it is. >> stephanie: yes.
