tv   Fox News at Night With Shannon Bream  FOX News  April 1, 2021 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT

8:00 pm
joy behar and i have decided to tour the country to do kind of a unity thing, republicans, that we are getting along and she's a very -- she's a lovely person and i'm going to learn a lot from her. i need to learn a lot from her to grow and evolve as a person, as a political thinker. april fools. that's all the time we have, shannon bream and the "fox news @ night" team take it all from here. shannon. >> shannon: laura, you know we would buy my tickets if you and joy were doing anything together because we would love to see the discussion. do it for charity. >> laura: that will be fun. have a great show. >> shannon: thanks, laura, thank you. breaking tonight, american airlines goes after home-based texas over the lone star state's senate bill 7 which would limit early voting hours so it would only happen between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., prohibit drive-through voting and ban the practice of sending absentee ballots to prospective voters,
8:01 pm
everyone, whether they've requested one or not and they are being accused of racism. republican say they are trying to restore order to a system that went through extraordinary people due to the unique circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic. >> the fact is, election fraud has occurred. election officials created drive-through voting, which is not authorized by law. >> shannon: texas lieutenant governor dan patrick says texans are fed up with corporations trying to dictate public policy. big business though was under a lot of pressure to do just that. floor -- coca-cola had expressed some support for it. but then after headquarters in atlanta, now coke and delta are among those speaking out forcefully against the new law. "the wall street journal" hammering their leaders tonight as woke and weak ceos, referring to george's new law, the journal says the state provides far more days of early voting than new york. it offers no excuse absentee
8:02 pm
ballots unlike mr. biden's beloved delaware. george's new law puts limits on drop boxes, but as deltas ms. sebastian regrets pointing out, it also makes them part of the permanent voting system. in 2019, those drop boxes were illegal. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night," i'm shannon bream in washington. white house corresponding kevin corke starts us off there tonight with the pressure coming from the president and progressives on these red states. good evening, kevin. >> a lot of pressure indeed. for all this talk as a candidate about being a unity president, it seems at least aspiration has given way to retribution for mr. biden, at least that's how some critics see his treatment of the nation's red, blue, political and policy divide. >> president biden: well, that's a decision they've made. i think it's a mistake, they should listen to dr. fauci and the scientists and the experts, but i think it's not responsible.
8:03 pm
>> mr. biden with a brush back pitch and at the texas rangers baseball club telling espn it's a mistake for the club to plan to have a full capacity crowd for the rangers home opener against the blue jays on april 5th and it's not just texas baseball, the biden administration has made no secret of its disdain for the lone star state's decision to loosen covert restrictions and end the mask mandate there, a state where three weeks later covert cases actually dropped to a record low. for all the bluster about red states "not following the signs," at least at the moment is actually blue states, especially in the northeast, that continue to struggle with new york, new jersey, rhode island, and massachusetts among the very hardest hit. mr. biden was elected to unify, so critics wonder why he appears to be targeting red states for what he's called neanderthal thinking. >> president biden: this is jim crow on steroids. >> his support of pulling major league baseball 's all-star game from the peach
8:04 pm
state as punishment for its recent past voter integrity law has truly struck a chord with georgians and not in a good way. the president of our best comments about the law of reducing voting hours was panned by the usually pro-biden "washington post," which gave him four pinocchios, but now his condemnation along with that of numerous major corporations has enhanced a possible boycott movement that even democrats are balking at. >> here's the thing, black, latino, api, and native american voters whose votes are the most suppressed are also the most likely to be hurt potential boycotts of georgia. >> so abrams is saying please do not boycott the state of georgia. meantime, texas tonight, as you saw in that piece, corporate giants american and dell becoming the first business heavyweights now to lend their opposition to the g.o.p. voting law there, which is of course aimed at improving integrity at the polls. texas senate as shannon pointed out would prohibit overnight and
8:05 pm
so-called drive-through voting and yes, it would restrict vote by mail applications, which lawmakers say can obviously lead to a lot of fraud. now in a statement, americans that "we are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it. we will watch and wait to see with the blowback is like in the lone star state in the days ahead." shannon. >> shannon: we are going to talk to some lawmakers coming up in just a couple of minutes. kevin, thank you. "fox news @ night" was the first to air the border patrol video showing smugglers dropping toddlers over a border fence. our peter doocy at the white house -- asked the white house press secretary about it. >> has the whiteouse considered beefing up border security now that there is video of a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old being thrown over the wall in new mexico? >> beefing up border security? >> there's video now over 3-year-old and a 5-year-old. >> i've seen the video and i think any of us who saw the
8:06 pm
video were incredibly alarmed by the steps that smugglers -- >> they still got close enough, as you guys are talking about addressing root causes and the reason for a smuggler to throw them over a wall into the desert and i'm just curious what the white house is doing to stop that from happening. >> are you concerned more about the kids safety are you concerned about kids getting in, tell me more about your concern here? >> kids safety is, as you've just mentioned, the main concern. >> of course it is, which is why am often surprised by some of the line of questioning here. >> shannon: the border patrol agent who posted the video tells fox news it happened in a rural area, very hard for agents to get to and the smugglers are, in her words, really hurting these children. progressive democrats like new york congressman alexandria ocasio-cortez are not satisfied with the president's $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, saying it doesn't go far enough. congressional correspondent chad pergram on the split within
8:07 pm
the democratic party. good evening, chad. >> shannon, the hallmark of the democrats plan is go big. a big covert bill a month ago, a big infrastructure bill costing trillions of dollars, big tax increases but it's still not big enough for some democrats. >> my concern is that they have allocated $2.25 trillion over about eight years. it's just not enough. >> ocasio-cortez is pushing for 10 trillion, the price tag of the bill isn't the only thing that scares voters. it's the scope of the build, highlighting progressive priorities. >> and to do so in a way that is resilient and that is in some ways green. i know that word sometimes frightens people. people i was referring to are the people who are in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry in the congress of the united states. >> with narrow democratic house majorities, republicans
8:08 pm
anticipate democratic divisions. >> there are democrats on capitol hill who are going to be this is way too much money. >> and it's just not on the infrastructure package. democrats are pushing the voting accessible, gun-control, immigration reform, but it doesn't stop there. ocasio-cortez slammed ice and the border patrol for what she called horrifying and inhumane conditions at the border. the congresswoman demanded what she termed justice. >> and by the way, those families are old reparation. the fact that this keeps happening over and over and over again is a political failure by both parties. >> president biden and democrats already burned political capital on the $1.9 trillion covert bill. that could make it hard to pass other bills. >> we start to see cleavages developed within the governing party. people start arguing over the details, each side then starts to dig in and demand things that even people within their own
8:09 pm
party are not focused on. >> this legislative fatigue could set in among democrats and unless all democrats stick together, that could doom their agenda. shannon. >> shannon: chad pergram in the hill, thank you, chad. border patrol encounters with and apprehensions of illegal immigrants continue to search tonight is the biden administration plans to relocate unaccompanied children to less crowded housing facilities away from the border goes into effect. chief breaking news correspondent trace gallagher has the very latest for us tonight. good evening, trace. >> shannon, good evening. those who doubt there is a crisis of the southern border might find new numbers compelling. the border patrol is now on track to encounter more than 2 million migrants before september. that would shatter the record. in early tomorrow, busloads of migrant children will arrive at a facility in houston that has 500 beds. how long the children will stay there is unknown because the white house has not yet said if the shelter is temporary or long-term. the houston holding center is
8:10 pm
1 of 10 texas facilities that, all told, can provide 13,000 beds. it's a lot, but not enough, not nearly enough, which is why texas governor greg abbott has now announced the expansion of operation lone star, the effort to crack down on human trafficking. watch. >> the biden administration's open border policies have created an open season for human traffickers, for drug smugglers, for cartels and gangs. these criminals are praying upon women and children, exposing them to abuse and terror. >> and the numbers back him up. since operation lone star launched on march 4th, the texas department of public safety has made 598 criminal arrests, seized 14 pounds of cocaine, dozens of arms, millions of dollars in cash and made 16,000 referrals of illegal immigrants to u.s. customs and border protection. and while law enforcement is
8:11 pm
looking for illegals crossing the border, illegals are also looking for law enforcement. texas congressman chip roy saw firsthand when he was near mcallen, texas, and ran into a group of migrants who crossed the rio grande and needed help finding border patrol. look. >> and then they will be taken out and either catch and release, or they'll be sent out to some of the unaccompanied children facilities, so this is your border patrol, border security at work. in other words, it has nothing to do with border passivity, it has everything in the world to do with processing human beings, which cartels are using for profit. >> and for those migrants who do get lost in the desert, there are now markers and arrows that will guide them to a border patrol tent so they can then be processed. shannon. >> shannon: trace gallagher, thank you very much, trace. minneapolis is a city on edge tonight as anti-police signs are
8:12 pm
during the fencing around the abandoned precinct where last summer's riots began. local officials and residents alike fear more violence when the jury in the derek shoaf and murder of trial which is a verdict. mike tobin was there then, he's back now to show us a side of the story live from annapolis. good evening, mike. >> good evening shannon. today the trial included testimony from derek's immediate supervisor, from paramedics who arrived at the scene of george floyd's death last may. there was emotional testimony from george floyd 'his girlfriend. away from the corners, minneapolis minneapolis mayor jacob frey had a threat for anyone who may want to come here to riot. minneapolis mayor jacob frey put out a warning for would-be rioters. even though security forces stood down last may, he said this time destruction won't be tolerated, people coming from out of town to cause uproar and hurt people will be arrested. he also made the claim that white super mrs. groups contributed to the chaos.
8:13 pm
>> there were a number of individuals on the ground that were from texas, in some cases associated with the bulk of the boys, a known white super mrs. group that were substantially involved in chaos and destruction in our city. >> the jury today heard from courtney ross, george floyd's on and off again girlfriend. humanizing floyd, she told the jury when they met, he worked security at the salvation army. ross was there and visibly upset. >> he said can i pray with you? >> she also told the court both she and floyd were addicted to obits, that they got some of their drugs from maurice hall, who was with him the day he died but hall, a key witness was expected to say floyd -- invoked his 50 minute rate against self-incrimination. ross recalled the time when floyd overdosed. >> his stomach really hurt, he was doubled over in pain.
8:14 pm
just wasn't feeling well and said he had to go to the hospitals, so i took them straight to the hospital. >> you later learned that that was due to an overdose. >> yes. >> the jury heard from paramedics who responded to the scene, one who checked floyd for a pulse, then quickly loaded his limp body on a stretcher and left the scene. >> and what that his condition appeared to be to you? overall? >> in lay terms, i thought he was dead. >> his immediate supervisor testified that the former officer did not [indiscernible] and used his need to pin george floyd to the ground. the same supervisor also said that chauvin should have left up when floyd stopped resisting. >> shannon: mike tobin, thank you. the public forum on states passing election integrity laws continues tonight after delta and coca-cola spoke out against their home state of georgia, american airlines followed suit tonight in texas.
8:15 pm
talk about the new battle lines being drawn with georgia state senator and fox news contributor and author of the new book, it is out tuesday, jason chaffetz. good to have you both with us. >> thank you. >> good evening. >> shannon: okay, so stacey abrams, who has become a force politically in georgia and beyond said this in the hill. abrams said she was deeply disappointed that the company's -- companies only spoke up after the bill was signed into law. i think it's an interesting point because a few days ago we had a statement from delta saying that the legislation that had been signed into law this week improved considerably during the process. they said it expanded weekend voting, codified sunday voting, protected voters ability to cast an absentee ballot without providing a reason and for the first time, drop boxes have also been authorized for all county and poll workers will be allowed to work across county lines. that seems to now, senator, be
8:16 pm
something that delta is walking back or walking away from. now they hate the law. >> shannon, i think the important thing for the viewers to know is that the whole conversation around election integrity, it didn't start november of 2020. this whole conversation, the whole narrative, this all started back in november of 2018 when the democrats and stacey abrams started talking about the machines could be hacked, they started talking about people not trusting the election and so this was about reviewing a process and that's what we were doing. i mean, the minority leader called for back in 2018 and 2019, called for this process to be reviewed, and what's disheartening is that we didn't hear from any of corporate america back then and now all of a sudden when we are reviewing the law, when we are debating the law, we didn't hear from them during all that and now we
8:17 pm
are hearing from them afterwards and i'd like to see them use their skill set to actually bring people together. let's bring two parties together and come up with a solution. i mean, that's what they do, that's what they do as a ceo and just to -- instead of just coming in and pointing out a problem and come confront us, come talk with us on the front end. i mean, they've got to realize that their customers, their employees are both republicans and democrats, so let's see what they do, let's bring people together. >> shannon: jason, we are hearing from some of these companies that say they did have some influence along the way, they felt like the law was better because they did have some input and then it wasn't until all these calls now came for boycotting end of the laws terrible and it's racist, no company wants to be associated with something that's being viewed as racist. now we have been making statements that it completely doesn't line up with a philosophy or their beliefs about -- they are using words
8:18 pm
like voter suppression and racism. it seems like there's been a turn on a dime with some of these groups and corporations. >> yeah. i think particularly at delta, where the ceo, if they are going to get involved and they are going get their fingers dirty, the ceo absolutely totally blew it. it was totally avoidable, it was an unforced error that they put upon themselves. when they put out the initial statement, i think that was probably the accurate representation, but guess what? then they started listening to the radical left who started berating them and essentially delta paid the ransom by agreeing with them and saying no, this is an acceptable, but it's as if, just like with "the wall street journal" pointed out in their opinion piece, for they didn't actually read the bill, because the allegations about the bill are totally inaccurate. that's why "the washington post" gave even joe biden, the president of the united states, four pinocchios and yet he continues to misrepresent what happened there in georgia.
8:19 pm
>> shannon: i encourage people to go read these for themselves, it's pretty easy to find them online and dig in and make your own judgment calls about what you think about what's been done in these bills rather than have someone else filter an opinion for you. check it out. jason, senator, thank you both. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> shannon: why is l.a.'s top prosecutor talking about dismantling the hard-core gang unit? what's that going to mean for public safety there? l.a. county sheriff has got some things to say, he's live, next. e of doing what's right, not what's easy. so when a hailstorm hit, usaa reached out before he could even inspect the damage. that's how you do it right. usaa insurance is made just the way martin's family needs it with hassle-free claims, he got paid before his neighbor even got started. because doing right by our members, that's what's right. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for. ♪ usaa ♪

8:23 pm
>> we have called for the disbandment of that unit and because we saw how it was abusive, how it was used to criminalize the people and
8:24 pm
neighborhoods and we saw that it was ineffective. he is simply doing what the people have been asking for. >> shannon: breaking tonight, los angeles county's top prosecutor is giving black lives matter executive what it wants. it's what's being called the reimagining of the hard-core gang unit of the district attorney's office. the reaction generate from alex villanueva, good to have you back, sheriff. >> thank you, shannon. >> shannon: let me start there, the gentleman who was speaking i believe got into the story, said this is what he told people he was going to, they voted for him and so he's just carrying out the policies he promised he would. what's the impact on public safety there? >> the impact will be enormous. right now we are facing 125 increase in homicides compared to last year. last year we finished with a 36% increase in homicide and this is pouring gasoline on a raging fire and he's going to pretend that somehow this is going to make the community safer.
8:25 pm
he definitely has a problem and this is only to the benefit of the criminal lobby, period. it is not making anybody safer, particularly our black and brown communities that face ravages of gang violence every single day. they have to live in fear, they even in their own homes are inferior for the stray bullet coming through and take one of them out when they watch tv at night on the floor because they can even sit on their own coaches, so this is absolutely a total abdication of his responsibility as the district attorney. >> shannon: this is what we currently know about the so-called hard-core gang unit in l.a. 700 -- more than 700 active cases, mostly murders or attempted murders for the oldest units in the l.a. office and it prosecutes one of some of the most complex cases. what happens to the cases that are arty in the pipeline? hundreds of cases sounds like quite an imposition on the community that need to be fully investigated and solved.
8:26 pm
>> yes. what's going to happen is the cases are going to eventually start being watered down, he's eliminating gang enhancements, gun enhancements, multiple victim enhancements. all of these things that are tools for prosecutors to keep the really, really bad people locked away in the community out of harm's way. he somehow believes they are safer by having the same people who made all these horrendous crimes back in the community and nothing could be further from the truth, so this is an experiment that went horrible and i guarantee you -- and he campaigned he was going to eliminate all of these units, he would have lost. he did a bait and switch from the campaign to when he took office. >> shannon: he says the sister of a man who was shot and killed by a juvenile gang member is outraged after the motion to have him prosecuted as an adult was withdrawn by district attorney george guest on as part of his new reform despite the
8:27 pm
fact that the murderer has continued to post his allegiance to his gang on social media while in custody. do you know if that is true? and what is the possible justification for that move? >> there is no justification. he's prescribing to this theory that everyone is off not being in jail than being in jail. what i'm saying everyone, these are people who are committing violent crimes, somehow they are better off in the community context instead of in the jail, so the entire concept of incapacitating violent criminals by locking them behind bars is lost on him. the concept of deterrence is totally lost on him. he only sees the jail as a retribution and not the fact that there's a lot of other things that keep the community safe, so we are in a world of hurt right now and it's not going to get any better until he does an absolute 180 on his reckless policies. >> shannon: well, there are reports the narco unit out there is also going to be cut back significantly, so, sheriff, stay
8:28 pm
in touch with us, thank you for your time. >> i appreciate that, i'm sure the drug dealers are rejoicing on that news also. >> shannon: it doesn't seem like a good move, but we will keep an eye on it, thank you, sir. because thank you. >> shannon: breaking tonight, as carjackings skyrocket in major east coast cities like philadelphia and d.c., a police conform to microform commission in the nation's capital is recommending a reduction in the size of our police force here. senior correspondent laura ingle is taking a closer look tonight at what happens when cities decrease the police. good evening, laura. >> the defunding the police movement has led to many changes of law enforcement throughout the country and at some policies are changing, so are crime statistics, causing concern for many people living in the cities and towns where crime is rising. earlier today, the d.c. police reform commission, 20 member panel created by the d.c. council last summer, released a report outlining 90 recommendations that would
8:29 pm
include sending social workers to some 911 calls and shrinking the size, response to billy's, and budget of the city's metropolitan police. this is a recent wave of carjackings taking place in d.c. since the first of the year resulting in over 30 arrests. >> i would characterize the recommendations as, for some, a bit edgy, but necessary. something that we really need to look at seriously. because we need to accept, and i think it's become clear to us that there is a greater reliance on police than is necessary and a more acceptance of some of the abuses by police then we should accept. >> in minneapolis, the scene of george floyd's death last year, which occurred while he was being arrested and sparked civil unrest around the world, total violent crime has risen 222% after police budgets were shifted to other city programs. here in new york, after the new york city council voted in july to move $1 billion away
8:30 pm
from the nypd's budget to education and social services, manhattan has seen murders rise 11.8%. the number of shootings rose over 40% in 2021 with 220 reported as of march 21st compared to 157 reported shootings during the same time last year. some city leaders note a decrease in drug offenses over the last year and some studies show a decrease in nonviolent offenses due to the pandemic. shannon. >> shannon: laura, thank you so much. how one state lawmaker is taking a stand against critical race theory and taking plenty of heat in the process. she joins us live next. ome money and then found the home of my dreams. but my home of my dreams needed some work sofi was the first lender that even offered a personal loan. i didn't even know that was an option. the personal loan let us renovate our single family house into a multi-unit home.

inherently racist, sexist or oppressive whether consciously or unconsciously or any individual should feel comfort -- or any psychological distress on account of their race or sex, is that accurate and can you boil it down to us in layman's terms? >> yeah. thank you. you know, i was a teenager when martin luther king became the leader of the civil rights movement and i've listened to his speech when he set the goal for america and that goal was that no american would be judged by the color of their skin, but instead of the of their character. and i know i am braced that goal i think america embraced that goal. critical race theory does just the opposite. it makes the color of our skin, our race, the prism through which everything in america is judged and it's really destructive and divisive because of that.
8:38 pm
>> shannon: i want to read something from jim benson, the naacp providence branch president, speaking to the providence journal said "this is outrageous, insulting, and divisive," your bill, he said it's exactly what we don't need right now. your response? >> you don't fight racism with more racism and that's exactly what this does. it is using race-shaming and neo-racism as a tool to stop racism. that's counterintuitive. and the problem is that since they keep looking for racism in every part of our life and every part of society, they'll never be satisfied. i don't think we have that much racism in america. i think there are other solutions, there are other
8:39 pm
reasons for disparity of outcomes. we can't guarantee outcomes. it just can't happen. is there -- is there differences in outcome? yes, and we can work on that, but it's not a was racism that does it and i think race-shaming our children should be off the table, and that is what this critical race theory does. it is divisive, it's poisonous. >> shannon: i want to ask you quickly, i know that there was a hearing this week at the education committee there at the state level, what kind of reaction have you gotten as people learn more about what you're trying to do? >> well, the hearing was sabotaged. it appears that some high school teachers asked their students to call in and say that they were going to give verbal testimony and then they never showed up, so my expert witnesses never got to explain to the people of rhode island what critical race theory is. they are the subject matter experts and they never got to
8:40 pm
talk about it. but in the days since, i actually have gotten great support on social media and emails, phone calls. there are people who understand just how divisive this is. you know, when you start dividing people by the color of their skin, you're going to lose the cohesiveness of our culture. it's just wrong to go down this road and i'm going -- this is just the first step, this hearing was just the first step. there are a lot of steps in between, we have to inform the people about what critical race theory is and why it is so bad for our country, but i'm willing to do that. i'll put in the work. >> shannon: i know you're going to have community discussions as well, so we will track that and we will track this bill to see where it goes. representative, thanks for being with us.

>> shannon: there is an historic effort underway this easter season to translate and make the bible available in every language in the world within 12 years. bringing the man spearheading the campaign, mark green. good to have you with us, mark. >> thank you, shannon, looking forward to it. >> shannon: i had no idea -- here's a bit of what you guys -- what we found out. currently 3,945 languages with no scripture, 167 million people speaking more than 2,000
8:46 pm
languages still need some translation work to begin. one in five -- not have a full bible in their first language. to tell you, i thought i knew what was going on in the world, but i had no idea about these numbers. >> i was stunned when i found out too. when i found out that was over 6,000 languages, it was mind-boggling. >> shannon: so we have somebody who talked about this which is spoken in alaska and wanted to share the story about why it's so important to be able to read things in your own language. here's a bit of that. >> because our village's bible was written in english, it was difficult for most to even conceptualize. before my mother died, i was able to read her psalm 139 in yupik and she said oh, so that it was to was -- >> shannon: to explain what it
8:47 pm
means to have the bible in your own language, the nuance, the detail of what it would mean. >> for me, i experienced it firsthand back in 1998. i went down there, i really got depressed because i found out there was only 30,000 people who speak [indiscernible] in only 400 of them were believers so i thought why did we spend all this money on only 400 people and then i got down there and i saw that she went to get his bible, this bible took actually 40 years, there was guerrilla warfare, all this that went on so he waited 40 years to get his bible. when he did, he openly wept. in that moment i just feel like the holy spirit prompted a question, why don't you go tell him he's not a good return investment because that's what it's arguing. one moment in 1998 i went from why would you translate the bible for all the groups, even the small ones, to how are we going to make sure that everybody on planet earth knows the love and hope that jesus offers. >> shannon: now you have this
8:48 pm
ambitious goal of 12 years, how do you expect to get it done? >> we are going to do that through collaborations, the ten leading organizations have come together, we actually have met once a month for the last ten years, we've met over a hundred times and we realize if we collaborate we can get this done better quality, faster, cheaper. the goal was 2150. we believe that by coming together, sharing tools, sharing strategies, 2150, everybody should have scripture by 2033 and not have to wait any longer. >> shannon: wow, that is ambitious. it's part of the reason i have my new book out about women of the bible because i want to make sure the people hear stories that they may not know, that they may never have heard of. this book focuses on the women, but there are stories all throughout the bible that i can imagine how much more meaningful it is for people to be able to read it in their own language in a way that really speaks to their own hearts. march, good luck, please keep us updated. >> thank you, you're exactly
8:49 pm
right, there's a lot of women around the world who don't get to hear these women speak, as you talk about and so it will be a great day when god's word is in everybody's language and we think by 2033 we can do that. if people go to illuminations -- to find out more and be a part because for $35 who can translate one verse and knock that verse out. >> shannon: it's an ambitious project, ambitious timeline but you've already accomplished so much. thank you. >> thank you, shannon. >> shannon: the growing governor cuomo scandals keep adding up. we've got an update for you tonight, that's next. get to tely how liberty mutual customizes your car insurance so you only pay for what you need? i mean it... oh, sorry...
