house side of capitol hill. we are expecting a hearing to take place at 1:00 p.m. eastern, and we will be airing at live in its entirety on c-span,, and on the c-span video app. we will continue with our open forum, in which we hear from you about any political issue you want to talk about. the numbers as usual, republicans, (202) 748-8001. democrats, (202) 748-8000. independents, (202) 748-8002. about 10 minutes here to continue with our open forum. this is ernest out of philly, a democrat. thanks for sticking with us through the pro forma. caller: my concern is inflation and gas prices and energy prices.
9:05 am
there has been such a shortage of energy, gas, and oil. why aren't there any lines at the gas stations? i think something is going on between oil companies and gas stations. if there is such a shortage of gas and oil, why aren't there yet stations running out of gas? host: do you find yourself buying less gas these days trying to get by with less? caller: i do not really drive anymore. i am 75 and i had accidents in front of my house and lost two vehicles in nine months. host: i am sorry about that. were you ok? caller: i was not in the vehicle. i was hit standing still. i can understand if there is such a shortage of oil and gas, why aren't there lines and gas stations running out of gas? host: this is greg in
9:06 am
springfield, virginia. good morning. caller: in a public school, you have all kinds of expressions of speech, whether it is a bake sale to support the local pet rescue or you have all kinds of messages going on. so if you have a level playing field, why should one message, religion, be treated in a special kind of way? the coach is indeed putting forth a message, but why does one message simply because it is religion in a marketplace of ideas as it were, why does that get ruled out? so i am on the side of the coach, just as i would be on the
9:07 am
side of a muslim coach. host: exercising religion gets special attention in the first amendment to the united states constitution along with several other issues, but it begins with congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. caller: yes, and it is the latter that also needs to be brought to our attention. if you are having a bake sale, you are not necessarily establishing that we all have to be out rescuing cats. if you have a junior achievement or whatever the different groups are that promote enterprise at the schoolhouse, you are not necessarily establishing that. all kinds of messages are being put out there at a school house, so why does one particular
9:08 am
message have to be treated in a special way where it has to be ruled out? host: that is greg in virginia. this is suzanne, line for democrats. caller: i just called to say i do not believe in religion but i believe in god and i had to go to catholic school my whole life until i went to college and then i finally had a choice there to believe in whatever i did. and then it was all wiped out when i could not believe in my own -- taking my own abortion. i was at a lucky age then. i was able to do it myself then, but now i am not afraid of getting pregnant because i am 69.
9:09 am
however, i know that young people are going to work on this and work on it now and this is going to really have a good help. i am going to work on it, too. i really believe this was just a start and people are going to work on this and it is going to work out. to believe that this is over, it is not over yet. this is just the beginning of a downfall, but nobody should feel down about it. people think that donald trump is having another happiness, but he is just beginning. it is all over, donald. host: this is raymond in georgia, republican.
9:10 am
caller: on the gun-control thing , people do not seem to understand they added all these laws that you do not really know what they added, like red flag laws where somebody can complain on somebody and invade their house, take their guns, and it is up to that person to get his guns back. they make people guilty before they are guilty and the problem with these things is they never stop. it is just the beginning. next thing you know, there will be another school killing or something and you have to understand ar-15 is just a gun that holds a bigger clip. there are no difference in the calibers. there are always going to be
9:11 am
guns, legal or illegal, for people to get. taking the guns away from people will eventually take all the rights away from the people. that is about the most i got to say about the guns. host: on the guns, matthew mcconnaughhay, after an advocate during the efforts to craft new gun legislation, so much so that he showed up at the white house and the white house briefing room, he has a column in usa today. the new gun law in america's future. he writes there is a responsible investment in our future, america's children. he says this bill is an example of the bipartisan meeting of minds and hearts that can lead us to reclaim true democracy in america, a reminder that no
9:12 am
single party is democracy itself for america itself and no single party in american politics has a claim to independently own the values by which they defined themselves. republicans and democrats do not have a license on the values they often posture themselves as owning. values are free-trade. it they -- they are there to share and bring to bear for all of us. more for matthew mcconnaughhay in today's usa today. caller: i saw a rabbi yesterday on tv, and he is a lawyer also. he is talking about suing the united states government over roe v. wade because according to jewish doctrine sometimes an abortion is required for the woman's health or emotional stability. so are they going against the jewish religion?
9:13 am
is that against the state? i do not know. so i would like to know if you would bring somebody on who could discuss this. thank you. host: always appreciate suggestions. it is a three hour show every day, so happy to take your suggestions for future segments. this is paul out of louisiana, republican. caller: how many abortions have been created because of the roe v. wade? host: is that a rhetorical question or do you want a number? caller: a number. host: i do not have that for you, but go ahead with your point. caller: because i remember 10 years ago it was 45,000 abortions. i cannot imagine how many
9:14 am
abortions they have right now. it is ridiculous and i think it is wrong because you are taking a life away from god. i would like to find out how many abortions they have had at least since the inception of roe v. wade to 2021. host: this is joanne out of michigan, independent. did i get that right? are you with us? caller: yes, i am joanne. my question today is where are all the illegals going in our country?
9:15 am
where are they being held? when they get there, what are they doing? people are living in communities where these people are settling. how are they responding to this? it would be nice to have a program where we could hear. these people are not speaking english. there are probably some that are, but what kind of jobs are they getting? how are they being treated? really it just seems impossible that we are able to give work to all these people and most of them look pretty young and healthy and strong. and we need that law. the drug deaths is something we should be able to get better control and god loves
