8:14 pm
what could be next for the president and for that bill. michael of a struggling president doesn't get much of a bump from this. well, i think he's but he's certainly counting on some bang for his buck here and it's a lot of bucks. >> when you think about that, the great recession stimulus bill is only 831 billion dollars and this is 1.2 trillion trillion this is a big step up and for california, it's going to be about 45 billion dollars more over the next 5 years. an additional we normally get from the federal government going to a roads. bridges highways mass transit. i'm going to our energy infrastructure. it's it's a lot of money at a very large scale. so to help the president politically. he's going to need to see some effects from this package. >> how soon will we start to see the first thing said ordinary citizens across the country here in california can point to and that bridge is
8:15 pm
finally getting built. that train is finally getting electrified that well is finally getting cleaned up. how fast can that happen? is. people see it in 2 ways. one. but people are going to get jobs from this to people who as you said, are going to be driving by and going. >> wow. there's a lot of construction going on this summer. that's all about. what's going to be all about these kind of dollars going into the building. building that mass transit line repairing the golden gate bridge, those sorts of things that people do care about a day-to-day basis. so this summer i missed ration is really hoping for is that this was sort of block the economy that's causing for him as low as low opinion polls and the inflation that we're experiencing right now. >> and michael, i've heard you indicate that there's a dispute between california and the administration over something you can not give us the rundown, but that could hold up some of our money. what's that about? >> you know, what's interesting is that there's 9 and half billion dollars locked up in a fight between
8:16 pm
between california and the u.s. department labor over public transit collective bargaining rights and it goes to a lot of the california has some years ago that department labor basically interferes with collective bargaining for public transit unions. so effectively about 9.5 billion across the state, including for bart for the for the mass transit system and senate send a clear the vta. those things are kind of locked up right now. that there are labor city, usually working things things out with the state, the governor's got into also, hopefully that will be unblock, but that would be a a big loss of dollars if they can figure it out because whatever we don't spend. so what else is going to take. >> what do you see as the biggest projects here in the bay area. >> well, i mean, i think that you're looking at certainly for well to the bexar. one of thing that they're going to do is deal with wildfire on electrical lines and are grounding them across the
8:17 pm
state. that's going to be good news for a lot of us here in northern california with regard to the fires. but also you're going to seeing places like one. oh, one highway, 80 getting getting repair. those for for the bay area. a bart munir are going to get more money. the idea caltrain will get electric haitian down the entire road down the entire way and there's an end. you know, there's always that that question whether or not that the high-speed bullet train between the bay area and southern california ever be built. this money could provide the tipping point to get that deal done. so there are a lot of good things that we haven't seen come forward in a long time to get the kind of money that's involved here. i mean, relatively per capita for california. it's not that much liked 1200 per person but still an historic scale the amount of money coming to the state at a time when we desperately need it. we need to put people back to work and hopefully maybe this. we've
8:18 pm
clogged supply chain. that's as threatening everyone's thanksgiving and christmas right now. yeah, it sure is. hey, michael of the president. of course, hailing the bipartisan. >> effort that went into this does carry for. i mean, that huge social spending bill is still out there. does this help. no, i mean, roads and bridges potholes. those things have been part of the. >> daily life of politicians of since the beginning of time. so there that's always going to be bipartisan in terms of its support that social spending bill. the idea that the policies of universal childcare. reduce prescription drug benefits, those kinds of things that goes into a whole different bucket which is social spending. and we're we're back to the fight between democrats, republicans in practice this week. we'll see the speaker and fail with that bill will be. and if she doesn't schedules a vote, you know, it's going to pass. and then the question's going to be what is krysten sinema going to do in the senate. so
8:19 pm
that's that's goingtto be. part surely upon partisan lines. but you know. state or that's a bipartisan issue. investing in humans unfortunately, that's become a very partisan a divide in this country right now. >> but back to the bipartisanship we had mitt romney and rob portman at the signing today and the president. called out mitch mcconnell who voted in favor of this infrastructure bill. so as we move forward and these big you know, they have the ribbon cuttings and the gold shovels digging into the ground in republican districts across the country with republican congress members who voted against this infrastructure bill. how does that play out. >> that will be interesting if the economy still isn't isn't going well in those air. some of those areas they're going to take it out on those members of congress say, well, because you can vote for me. we didn't get as much as we should have because you yourselves out. maybe we would have gotten more. but in the
8:20 pm
end, you know, i have to say in politics, we all very short memories and were peopln be voting on november next year may or may not be related to what happened here today. but at least in terms of history, in terms of what the government has ever done this is a historic achievement and for biden. president biden is a talking point about how he can get things done and you can point to this big bill as as a signature effort. this administration to date. so for him it's a big accomplishment for california. it's going to be a big win. come november. >> what does the president have to do. michael to push for the social spending bill. can he help and a unifying moderate. and will they get to a vote this week. i think it's really more about it about joe mansion. christensen might hear he became to the he appeared tell essentially to the house caucus. he helped broker a deal. >> between the moderates and
8:21 pm
the liberals to get to get them to come together for the socialist for that build back better. bill. >> still out there or joe mansion christian center. i'm no one really knows where they want to fall and it's going to be a biden's real leadership and whether or not he can get them to sign off on this on the build back better. bill after the house passes it i think is going to be very tense the speaker is going to try and get a bill done this week scheduled for a vote and then and then it's going to be, you know, around the holidays that will see if the senate will take this up and it joe manchin krysten sinema decide that maybe this is good enough. maybe this will work for them or they get to make sure that from their constituents that they really realize that they need to need to make the vote. >> right now. it's very uncertain. >> all right. michael, as always, thank you so much for our time. that's our political analyst michael yaki, you know, will be talking about this again. thank you, michael.
