DYSOM 6/20/2019: RI Republican Party Chair Sue Cienki


DAN: A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON AT THE STATEHOUSE TODAY FOR SURE. ♪ ANNOUNCER: THE DAN YORKE “STATE YOU IN PART BY — LOOKOUT RHODE ISLAND AND TACO COMFORT SOLUTIONS. DAN: SO WE PAY THE CHIROPRACTOR P OR WE DON’T KNOW. THIS IS A THING WHERE THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE MIGHT NEED CRISIS MANAGEMENT ADVICE. WHAT HAS HAVEN’T IN THE LAST 24 HOURS AFTER WE GOT SOME NEWS FROM THE TARGET 12 TEAM ABOUT A LINE ITEM IN THE BUDGET, IT IS JUST KIND OF NUTTY. THINK YOU FOR TUNING IN. THE NEW CHAIRPERSON OF THE ARTY IS HERE IN RHODE ISLAND. I WILL ASK HER ABOUT THIS ISSUE. PERSPECTIVE SO FAR, THE DEBATES WILL RAGE ON AT GENERAL ASSEMBLY . LET’S CHECK IN ON WHAT IS HAPPENING. AN INTERNATIONAL SPACE, AMERICA SAYS NO, IT IS NOT. THE PRESIDENT TWEETS THAT IRAN MADE A BIG MISTAKE. WHAT IS THAT? LAST NIGHT HE SAID DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT. TODAY HE SAYS TDE A BIG MISTAKE. I AM NOT SURE WHAT KIND OF COMMANDER IN CHIEF BEHAVIOR THAT I’M NOT SURE WE SHOULD THREAT — THREATEN COUNTRIES VIA TWITTER. SANCTIONS, MILITARY MANEUVERS, THIS OR THAT. BUT TWEETING, YOU MADE A BIG MISTAKEAKES AMERICA NERVOUS. BUT THAT IS JUST ME. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIGURE OUT THIS SITUATION SINCE 20 SIT — 2016. STAY TUNED FOR TO T C13 DEVELOPMENTS. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS SITUATION. TARGET 12 FOUND THIS STORY. $1 MILLION VERSUS REIMBURSEMENT FOR A SINGLE DOCTOR. HEADLINE, PLEASE? THIS SINGLE DOCTOR RECEIVED NEARLY $2 MILLION OVER TIME AN ACTUAL TAXPAYER SUPPORT HAS BEEN HAPPENING WITH COMMUNITY ACTION MID TO THOUSANDS. A SPECIALTY CONCEPT HERE. LIKE IT WAS PRETTY INTERESTING. VICTOR PEDRO’S TREATMENT PROGRAM WAS DENIED FEDERAL FUNDING BUT WITH THE HELP OF HOUSE SPEAKER NICHOLAS’S LEADERSHIP TEAM, TAXPAYERS HAVE CONTINUED TO PAY FOR A TREATMENT PROGRAMO DEVELOPED. VICTOR PEDRO RUNS A PROGRAM. HIS WEBSITE DESCRIBES IT AS STREAM FOR BRAIN INJURIES AND DISORDERS. THE HOUSE SPEAKER IS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF THE PROGRAM BUT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ISN’T. A LETTER OBTAINED BY THE DIRECTOR OF MEDICARE AND MEDICAID SERVICES WARNED THERE WERE VERY FEW PARAMETERS FOR COST OR QUALITY CONTROL, MEETING THE MEDICAL CARE ADVISORY COMMITTEE DETERMNED THERE WAS NOT EVIDENCE TO DETERMINE THAT TREATMENT WORKED. THE FORMER GOVERNOR TRIED TO HALT FUNDING FOR THE PROGRAM IT FOR YEARS, DEMOCRATIC AND HOUSE LEADERSHIP HAS COME TO THE RESCUE. A REVIEW OF STATE BUDGET DATA SHOWS T CHIROPRACTOR’S PRACTICE HAS RECEIV OVER 1.7 MILLION DOLLARS IN TAXPAYER MONEY SINCE FISCAL YEAR 2005 AND DESPITE WARNINGS THAT THIS WAS A DIFFICULT BUDGET YEAR — IT IS NOT EASY TO SAY NO AND IT IS NOT MY NATURE TO SAY NO. THE BUDGET RESTORES $1 MILLION FOR THE PROGRAM THAT THE GOVERNOR TRIES TO CUT. A SPOKESPERSON BLAMES THE REMINDER ADMINISTRATION FOR NOT MAKING A STRONG ENOUGH CASE, SAYING IN PART, THE SPEAKER BELIEVES THEY SHOULD BE COMMITTED TO PROVIDING APPROPRIATE RESOURCES OFFERING UNIQUE CARE AND TREATMENT IN DIFFICULT CASES. WHEN WE REACHED OUT, HE SAID WE — HE WOULD GET BACK TO US. FRIDAY BEFORE IT MOVES TO THE SENATE. DAN: I DO NOT NECESSARILY SEE THE DOCTOR AS A NEFARIOUS CHARACTER. I FOUND HE HAS A TRACK MAC — TRACK RECORD OF HELPING FUEL. THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL IN SOME WAYS. IT IS NOT ALWAYS EASY TO PLOW THROUGH IN TERMS OF EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT. A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT ABOUT A LOT OF DIFFERENT MALADIES AND DISORDERS. REALLY CURIOUS ABOUT THIS, I CANNOT GET THE ANSWER I’M LOOKING FOR. IF MEDICAID HAS REFUSED TO COVER, IN OTHER WORDS, THE TREATMENT DOES NOT FIT THE PROTOCOL FOR MEDICAID, WHY IS MEDICAID REIMBURSEMENT HAPPENING FOR THESE OFFICES? I PUT A CALL IN AT PRESS TIME. THE SHOW TAPED AT 1:00 IN THE AFTERNOON. I AM TOLD THE TREATMENT DOESN’T FALL UNDER THIS PROTOCOL , ONE OF 25 OTHER REQUESTS DENIED SINCE 2014. THESE ARE NOTES FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. IF THE COVERAGE HAS BEEN DENIED, WIRE THE PAYMENTS BEING MADE? I AM NOT TRYING TO SOUND THE ALARM THAT THIS HAS A SENSE OF CRIMINALITY, BUT THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT HE NEEDS TO LOOK AT THIS THING RIGHT AWAY. TODAY, SPEAKER MATTIELLO DECIDED ENOUGH OF THIS, I AM PULLING THE FUNDING GOING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT BUDGET. HE TOLD TARA GRANITE HAND THAT EARLIER TODAY. LET ME KNOW ABOUT THE FUNDING IN THIS BUDGET. I AM NOT CONVINCED OF THAT. REALLY NEED TO SERVICE. IT IS NOW CONTROVERSIAL AND I WILL HAVE THAT DEBATE ON THE FLOOR. I WILL DO SOMETHING WE SHOULD NOT DO. DAN: SO THIS SITUATION , THIS HASN’T BECOME POLITICAL YET. IN THE SENSE OF, SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVITY, THE STORIES 24 HOURS OLD AT PRESS TIME FOR THE SHOW. IF THE REPORT SOUNDS AN ALARM THAT MIGHT BE MISUNDERSTOOD, YOU CALL A PRESS CONFERENCE AND SAY, LET ME EXPLAIN THE WHOLE SITUATION, EVERYBODY. THIS IS WHY WE THINK THIS THING WORKS. IF IT DOES NOT CALL FOR THAT, YOU PULL IT FOR REASONS YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN IN TERMS OF A MISTAKE. BUT THE SPACE THE SPEAKER HAS CARVED OUT IS HEY, IT IS ALL COOL THAT YOU PEOPLE ARE MAKING TOO MUCH NOISE AND I HAVE TOO MUCH TO DO. NO. SORRY. IT DOES NOT FLY. THE CHAIRPERSON OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, SUE CIENKI. GLAD TO HAVE YOU ABOARD. DOES YOUR GUT TELL YOU ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY THAN WHAT I SAID ABOUT THIS? MS. CIENKI: IT SHOWS HOW THE BUDGET PROCESS WORKS HERE, WHICH IT DOES NOT. MIDNIGHT, LAST FRIDAY, THERE WERE CHANGES. IT WAS THROUGH GOOD INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING THAT FOUND THIS, AND IN QUESTIONS HAVE TO BE ASKED. QUESTIONS HAVE TO BE ASKED. AND YOU ARE RIGHT, IT IS A QUESTION. WHY DOES THIS ONE INDIVIDUAL GET THIS $1 MILLION? WHY? YES, IT HAS BEEN IN THE PAST AND THE GOVERNOR HAS TRIED TO DO IT. IT SPEAKS TO TWO ISSUES. WHY DO WE HAVE AN EXPECT OR GENERAL — THIS COULD BE A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHY YOU NEED THAT VETO. MAYBE IT SHOULD NOT BE IN THERE. YOU ARE RIGHT IT DOES NOT SPEAK TO WHETHER OR NOT HIS SYSTEM WORKS FOR PATIENTS. SOME PATIENTS OBVIOUSLY BELIEVE IT DOES. IT IS NOT ABOUT HIM. IT IS ABOUT THE ENTIRE BUDGET PROCESS. DAN: I GET IT IS A LINE IN THE BUDGET, BUT IT IS BEING EXTRACTED. THIS PARTICULAR ITEM IS BEING EXTRACTED PRIOR TO THE BUDGET BEING DEBATED AND SENT TO THE GOVERNOR FOR SIGNATURE ANYWAY. THE GOVERNOR EXTRACTED IT HERSELF. THE FORMER GOVERNOR HAVE DONE THE SAME THING. IT KEEPS GETTING PUT RIGHT BACK. THIS IS ONE OF THE SPEAKERS I CANNOT FIGURE OUT OF HIS PHILANTHROPIC, MEDICAL, OR BENEVOLENT I SHOULD SAY, THE NEVER WENT MEDICAL PHILOSOPHY ON THE SPEAKERS PART OR WHETHER THERE IS A BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY HERE HE IS LOOKING AT HIM — AT. I AM CONFUSED. AND YOU ARE RIGHT, EXPLAIN IT TO THE VOTERS. THAT IS THE WAGE SHOULD BE. THERE SHOULD BE VIGOROUS DEBATE. DAN: FELLOW DEMOCRATS ARE SAYING, SPEAKER, THIS IS TOO HOT, CAN YOU YANK IT OUT, THAT IS THE POLITICAL THING THAT WE DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YET BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT HEARD ANYONE SAY SO. WELCOME TO RHODE ISLAND. THIS IS UNIQUE. DOES THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ME TO LOOK AT THIS? SURE. HE NEEDS TO LOOK AT A LOT OF THINGS. WHY THIS ONE INDIVIDUAL RECEIVED THIS PAYMENT, LIE? WHAT WAS GOING ON? DAN: THE INDIVIDUAL RECEIVES THE PAYMENT AS REIMBURSEMENT. IF YOU HAVE A MAJOR-LEAGUE HEADACHE LIKE I HAVE TODAY, YOU GO IN AND GET TREATMENT. IF YOU’RE COVERED BY MEDICAID, THE BILLING GOES TO MEDICAID AND THERE IS REIMBURSEMENT. THIS ONE IS NOT COVERED BY MEDICAID. UNDERSTOOD. AND IT WAS ONE OF THE OTHERS THAT WERE TURNED DOWN. I DO NOT SEE HOW THE 24 OTHERS ARE BEING PAID ANYWAY. SO THE SPEAKER IS NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS QUESTIONS TO ANSWER. SO DOES THE ADMINISTRATION IN FACILITATING THE PAYMENT OF MEDICAID REIMBURSEMENTS — NONREAL — NONREIMBURSABLE EVENTS. DAN: THANK YOU. MS. CIENKI: AND IF THIS IS TRULY A PROCEDURE THAT DOES WORK, WHY NOT FIGHT MEDICAN THAT, SAYING THE SHOULD BE REVERSIBLE. IT SHOULD BP OR THAT IS THE WAY THE PROCESS WORKS, NOT THIS WAY. THAT IS WHAT I HAVE AN ISSUE WITH. DAN: YOU MAKE A GOOD POINT ON THAT ONE. WHEN WE COME BACK, WE WILL DIG DAN: ALRIGHT, I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY SHOWS WE DO ON THIS, THE VITRIOL OVER THIS CLARIFICATION OF ROE V. WADE HAS BEEN THAT. I AM NOT SURE WE NEEDED IT. DO WE NEED IT? NO. IT IS A DISTRACTION. WE DID NOT NEED THE BILL. IT IS A MAJOR DISTRACTION. SO MANY OTHER ISSUES AFFECTED THIS IS NOT SOMETHWOULD HAPPEN OVERNIGHT. THEY WORRY ABOUT THE CODIFICATION OF ROE V. WADE, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? ROE V. WADE HAS CHANGED. CASEY VERSUS PLANNED PARENTHOOD. THE LAW HAS CHANGED IN SOME RESPECTS SO THEY USE THESE SOUNDBITES. WHAT DOES EVEN MEAN THESE DAYS? AND THE LIKELIHOOD OF IT BEING OVERTURNED BY THE SUPREME COURT, I DO NOT SEE THAT HAPPENING. IF THAT SHOULD HAPPEN, THE LEGISLATURE HAS PLENTY OF TIME TO ACT. BILL.UP QUICKLY THAN ACT OF TH& LOOK A QUICKLY THEY DID IT. IT WAS NOT TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE OF THIS. SO MANY OTHER ISSUES HAVE TO BE ADDRESSED AT THE STATEHOUSE, AND THIS WAS A DISTRACTION. DAN: IF ANYONE REMEMBERS, THIS ROE V. WADE BILL WENT FROM THE HOUSE TO THE SE SENATE HAS ALL SORTS OF PROCEDURAL PROBLEMS WITH THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE THAT VOTED IT DOWN 5-4 ON THE BACK OF THE STATE REPRESENTATIVE WHO SAID HE NEEDED LANGUAGE CHANGES. HE CAME BACK AND HE WAS SATISFIED AND WAS GOING TO VOTE YES, 5-4. HE MINORITY LEADER AND THE SENATOR FEIGNED THAT THEY WERE GOING TO EXERCISE THEIR RIGHT AS MEMBERS OF LEADERSHIP. TWO REPUBLICAN AND THREE DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS OF LEADERSHIP WHO CAN WEIGH IN AT ANY TIME. THAT WAS RANK AMATEUR. WHY DON’T THEY JUST SIT DOWN AND BEHAVE THEMSELVES AND PUT THEMSELVES IN A POSITION RATHER THAN YELLING ON THE FLOOR. IT IS LIKE SOMETIMES YOU GUYS, EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE A SITUATION WHERE YOU COULD EXECUTED WELL COME YOU DON’T APPEAR YOU AS A PARTY. THIS IS HISTORIC. LIKE THE KEYSTONE CAP — COPS FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE. I HOPE IT IS PART OF YOUR LEADERSHIP SKILL THAT YOU EXPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHAT KIND OF, YOU KNOW, IF YOU ARE RIGHT ON AN ISSUE OR ARTICULATING A REAL POINT, DO NOT SCREW IT UP RIGHT CREATING MORE SHENANIGANS THAN NECESSARY. INSTEAD OF THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP WEIGHING IN AND BEING ON THE RECORD OF DOING A YES VOTE ON THE RECORD, THEY KICKED IT IN AND IT WENT TO THE FLOOR GOT PAST. IT WENT TO THE HOUSE LICKETY-SPLIT AND TO THE GOVERNOR FOR SIGNATURE YESTERDAY. THEY PASSED THE BILL QUICKLY AND RECORD SPEED. DAN: THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT. MS. CIENKI: WE DON’T HAVE TO FOCUS ON THE ABORTION ISSUE, THOUGH IT HAPPENED WITH THE ABORTION ISSUE. FOLLOW RULES AND PROCEDURES AND POLICIES. DAN: I HAVE THIS HEADLINE WHICH TALKS ABOUT AT LEAST A FLIRT THE PARTY HAD WITH AN APPEAL ON THIS BUT IT DID NOT GO ANYWHERE. MS. CIENKI: IT IS A REAL CHALLENGE. THE PARTY DID NOT HAVE ANY STANDING. INDIVIDUAL SENATORS SENT A LETTER IN AND COMPLAINED ABOUT THE RULES BEING BROKEN. THEY FELT AS IF THE BILL WAS PROPERLY PLACED IN THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE BECAUSE OF A CHANGE IN CURRENT STATE LAW. IT FITS THE PATTERN TO BEGIN THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. THEY WORKED ON A COMPROMISE BILL BUT WHO WAS INVOLVED IN THAT COMPROMISE? THEY DO NOT BRING SENATOR JESSICA OR MORGAN OR ANY OF THE REPUBLICANS AND TO TALK ABOUT THAT. THEY DID NOT BRING IN THE SENATOR WHO SAID, WHY DON’T YOU PUT IN A SUNSET PROVISION. DAN: I THINK IT HAS GOT ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS. I UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT. HE WAS SAYING THIS LAW PASSED BUT IT DOES NOT TAKE EFFECT UNTIL ROE V. WADE — RIGHT. IT IS THAT KIND OF PROVISION. EVEN HE WAS NOT BROUGHT INTO THE NEGOTIATIONS THERE THAT IS NOT A COMPROMISE BILL. IT IS SHOVING IT DOWN SOMEONE’S THROAT. ARE WE REALLY GOING TO TALK ABOUT COMPROMISE, WHICH IS WHAT GOOD GOVERNANCE IS, YOU LISTEN TO BOTH SIDES. YOU DID NOT YOU WANTED TO GET THE BILL PASSED AND THE SPONSORS WERE PUTTING A LOT OF PRESSURE ON YOU. I HAVE AN OBJECTION TO, JUST FOLLOW RULES AND POLICIES AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, LET EVERYONE BE INVOLVED. DAN: ONE FUNNY THING THAT HAPPENED, THE GOVERNOR SIGNED THE BILL AND A LITTLE HANDSHAKE GOING ON, IT GOT A LITTLE COMPLICATED. THERE IS BROAD MAJORITY SUPPORT FOR THE BILL. IT CODIFIES THE STATUS QUO, PROVIDES ACCESS TO HIGH-QUALITY HEALTH CARE FOR WOMEN, AND AS I SAID, I THINK THE MAJORITY — THE MAJORITY OF RHODE ISLANDERS ARE FOR IT. [INDISCERNIBLE] DAN: DIDN’T WANT TO SHAKE HANDS WITH SEVERAL DEMOCRATS. I DON’T KNOW. DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT THAT? MS. CIENKI: I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT. DAN: EVERY TIME I SEE HER, I SAID THIS THE OTHER DAY, SHE RECENTLY SAID TO ME, HOW COME YOU DON’T HAVE ME ON THE SHOW A LOT TO NOW YOU’VE GOT TO COME ON THE SHOW BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW WHAT THAT IS ALL ABOUT. DAN: THE BEAUTIFUL STATEHOUSE. WHAT IS ON THE REPUBLICAN EA OR IN A LIST FOR THIS SESSION, AND SPECIFICALLY IN THE BUDGET, OTHER THAN A MEDICAID LINE-ITEM VETO AS ARE TALKING ABOUT? WHAT WAS INTERESTING WAS THE REPUBLICANS PUT IN LEGISLATION THAT IT SHOULD GO INTO A RESTRICTED ACCOUNT. THE MONEY SHOULD GO TO — TO AN ACCOUNT OR WHICH USED TO BE A DOLLAR. NOW, YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW ALONG WITH ALL OF THE WORD — THE WORDING IN IT, $.50 OF THE 911 FEES WILL NOW GO INTO AN US — A RESTRICTED COUNT FOR IT. THAT IS A WIN FOR THE PUBLIC. BUT $.75, AN INCREASE OF 25 CENTS THAT YOU WILL BE PAYING FOR A 911 EMERGENCY FEE , OUT OF THE 75 ADDITIONAL SENSE, IT SAYS THAT MONEY WILL GO INTO THE GENERAL FUND INSTEAD OF 10% OF THAT 75%, AS WILL G3 TECHNOLOGY FUND FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES. THEY HAVE INCREASED THE FEE $.25 FOR THE BILL. I’M NOT QUITE SURE THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH THAT. THEY ARE TAKING IT FROM ONE DOLLAR AND THEY ARE SAYING THEY ARE REDUCING IT TO $.50 BUT IN FACT, THEY ARE INCREASING IT TO $1.25. YOU ARE PAYING $.25 MORE THAN LAST YEAR, BUT 50 — $.50 OF THAT FEE IS GOING INTO A RESTRICTED ACCOUNT. $.75 OF THAT IS NOW GOING TO THE GENERAL FUND, -10%. 7.5% IS GOING INTO IT , INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY. IT IS VERY CONVOLUTED. DAN: I HAVE GOT TO CATCH UP ON THIS. WE HAVE DONE A COUPLE OF SHOWS AND IT GOT LOST IN THE LEGISLATIVE MEYER. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THE FEES ARE GETTING INCREASED $.25. DAN: IN TERMS OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF HOW THE MONEY IS BEING USED. EXACTLY TO THAT IS A BIG QUAGMIRE P ARE WE BROUGHT IT TO THE FOREFRONT, THE MONEY YOU ARE PAYING SHOULD ACTUALLY GO TO A RESTRICTED ACCOUNT, WE GOT A PARTIAL WIN. YOU ARE NOW PAYING MORE. DAN: THE SPEAKER SAID THE OTHER DAY IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE BUDGET AND CUTS MADE, SEE ME ABOUT IT. I LAUGHED ABOUT IT. I WONDERED ALOUD WHAT KIND OF LINUX GENERATE OUT THE DOOR FROM THE THIRD FLOOR. I THOUGHT ABOUT PULLING A STUNT AND TAKING THE RADIO SHOW UP AND SAYING ALL RIGHT. BUT I’M NOT SURE WE ARE IN THE RIGHT SPACE. THERE SEEMS TO BE AN APATHY OUT THERE THAT IS VERY PREVALENT. KIND OF LIKE I DON’T KNOW NOTHING. WHAT HAPPENS THIS WEEK WITH SCHOOLS AND SPORTS BEING THREATENED. NOW EVERYONE COMES OUT OF THE WOODWORK WHEN THEY ARE AWOKEN, WHICH IS KIND OF THE WAY IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN, BUT IT SEEMS A GET HIS WORKS RIGHT NOW. MS. CIENKI: I THINK PEOPLE GET COMFORTABLE. THEY WA UP AND HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE AND GO TO WORK AND TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS AND WATCH THEIR CHILDREN PLAYING SPORTS AND EVERYTHING IS OK P ARE UNTIL WE GET TO A CRITICAL POINT. WHEN THEY CANNOT BUY THAT NEW CAR. THEY CANNOT PAY THEIR RENT. THEY CANNOT GO ON VACATION WITH THEIR CHILDREN BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING MORE OF THEIR MONEY AWAY. YOU GET TO A CRITICAL JUNCTURE WITH SPORTS, THEY HAVE NOT BEEN PAYING ATTENTION TO HOW THE MONEY IS SPENT. DAN: YOU EXPERIENCED THAT. MS. CIENKI: RIGHT. WE TRY TO HIGHLIGHT THE ISSUES. IT IS NOT THAT WE WERE TRYING TO TAKE THINGS AWAY FROM PEOPLE BUT TO EXPLAIN TO THEM THAT WHAT THEY HAD GIVEN — BEEN GIVEN IN THE PAST IS NOT SUSTAINABLE. YOUR ROADS WILL CRUMBLE AND YOUR SCHOOLS WILL BE IMPACTED AND THERE WILL BE NO INNOVATION IN YOUR SCHOOL. WE TRY AND TELL PEOPLE WHAT WAS HAPPENING. CERTAINLY WARWICK IS A GREAT EXAMPLE NOW. DAN: IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY EXCITED ABOUT THE REELECTION CAMPAIGN FOR DONALD J. TRUMP? MS. CIENKI: THE RHODE ISLAND STATE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS FOCUSED IN 20 20TH I GETTING MORE PEOPLE ELECTED IN THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. MY JOB IS TO MAKE SURE WE GET PEOPLE ELECTED. DON TRUMP HAS NOT CAUSED WHAT YEARS.PPENED HERE IN THE PAST 8 RHODE ISLAND HAS BEROLLED BY THE DEMOCRATS AND LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING. THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND WITH LESS THAN ONE MILLION PEOPLE HAS A BUDGET OF 9.9 BILLION DOLLARS. YOU MUST BE KIDDING ME TO A THOUSAND DOLLARS PER PERSON HERE . MASSACHUSETTS, NEW HAMPSHIRE, WAY LESS. 6000, 5000. RHODE ISLAND IS 9000 PER PERSON. WE — IT NOT SUSTAINABLE. WHO ARE WE LOSING? OUR BIGGEST DEMOGRAPHIC LEAVING IS OUR YOUNG PEOPLE. CANNOT SUSTAIN IT. DAN: YOU’RE GETTING GOOD. NICE TO SEE YOU. DAN: WE WILL BE COMMITTED TO GETTING ANSWERS FOR THAT SPECIFIC DOCTOR. IT SEEMS A MORE QUESTIONS WE DEVELOP. CBS CHARITY CLASSIC HAPPENING THIS WEEKEND INTO MONDAY. DO NOT FORGET NORTHEAST IS GOING ON, AND INCREDIBLE GOLF THEME PLAYED THERE. MY GUEST MARNE NIGHT NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION. WE WILL SEE YOU THEN.

  1. Speaka Nick is a crook, funneling tax payer dollars to a chiropractor??? He needs to step down. Shameful!

  2. The US government purposely allowed this spy drone to be shot down. The whole purpose of a spy drone is to be undetectable, to not be caught, yet this one gets caught and by of all countries the one the US government is trying to frame for going to war against??? This is easy and plain to see. We shouldn’t be going to war with Iran, this is reprehensible! Shameful activity by the warmongers in our government. And anyone clamoring for war better check their principles!

  3. So this chiropractor deals with treatment for brain injuries and disorders… hmmm…🤔 I think Speaka Nick would be a perfect candidate for his treatment, and I mean that with the utmost disrespect…

  4. God I love how the GOP has the same feckless leadership that we need in this state from an opposition party 😂 Dan asks about specific line items and Sue wants to talk about the process 😂 loser! It’s about individual line items dummy. I love how incompetent the RIGOP is, it’s good stuff!

  5. Sue you don’t know what Roe v Wade means??? Ummm you can look it up online… you do realize that you’re a political leader, you should know these things so that you know what you’re talking about…😂 but oh wait, you’re a Republican, now I understand, a lot talk and no substance 😂

  6. I hope the RIGOP stay just as feckless and incompetent as they’ve always been! Love it!! Don’t change a thing Sue!

  7. Roe v Wade is the compromise you dummy!! There’s no need to compromise on the compromise!! Get it through your head… oh wait you must have ulterior motives, huh Sue, you want to ban abortion… that’s right… well no, there’s no compromising with a fascist view, get over yourself!!

  8. Young people are leaving RI because there are no high paying jobs here! Fix that!! You’ve got to investment in education, research. Oh yeah and we need Culture!!!! RI is boring when compared to Boston, NY, Chicago, DC, San Fran, LA… and the list goes on and on and on….
