1:01 am
texas. >> the last three president biden came out with a plan to deal with inflation but white it consisted of is more instead of acknowledging it was the 2 trillion-dollar tax and spending spree that is not complete partisan basis. you would think after having had that experience they would not want to double down because even at that time you have liberal with a lot of spending and dollars of their.
1:02 am
>> record gas prices which are hitting the pocketbooks every day. even though the president may talk about job growth and wage growth is not keeping up with inflation with that de facto cap. what is the solution to that they aree still trying to revise discussions of the build back better bill and that is the exact opposite trying to combat inflation? and then to stop the reckless idea of $5 trillion. but this drives the inflation if there is anything that gets
1:03 am
people's attention is a price for get on the gas in the way to solve this problem is to allow american energy producers to get off the sidelines and back in the game and start producing energy right here in the united states and all of the above makes it shows crushing the pocketbooks of the american people. >> $4.92 a gallon 30 cents higher than when we were here two weeks ago. and then to try to make things differently.

1:05 am
transportation and energy say if you're not happy with high gas prices than by's goal. but these people are tone deaf. out of touch and democrats have wanted high gas prices for a long time when biden was running for president said he guaranteed he would eliminate fossil fuels. just last week once again this president has come out siding with the environmental extremists he went home 2000 with their actions just last week andt these were granted 2015 to 2020. the president is taking and ask to american energy and shopping into the paychecks of the american people.
1:06 am
and then always to lower the cost off gasoline and the president is lying. >> so two days ago in texas 19 elementary school kids are killed and two teachers are killed and all of those families in the way it has changed forever that is the topic of the weapons use but also mental health and part of this discussion but the last day of october 2013 there was a piece of mental health legislation we went to the last bill president kennedy
1:07 am
had signed 50 years before that date and the community mental healthhe act. so that was designed to close facilities and also designed to create alternatives that never quite got completed. so for most of the 50 years the local police and the emergency room as the de facto mental health system for the country that is beginning to change but it can't change as quickly as we wanted 41 states now that are part of the program that we developed with legislation that we were also talking about that day and then fully certified community behavioral health clinic program making a difference in the states and to people are

1:09 am
hesitant to step forward because they see themselves as becoming part of a class on —- a class seen as dangerous. doesn't mean mental health is not an important part to deal with people who are troubled. almost all of these cases involve not justho somebody was decided that also who was purposely decided this is a way for them to end their own life. so whether suicide or homicide but also have the mental health system and the balance of that this is an important balance to be sure to achieve.
