Psaki holds press conference with social media influencers: Property Brothers, Benito Skinner | FULL

Jun 06, 2021
Hello everyone, thank you so much for joining me, I apologize for being late, it's completely my fault and I know many of you are working parents and have very busy jobs so I apologize but I'm really looking forward to having a conversation with You guys and I hear what's on your mind and I also want to thank you for everything you do on your platforms to communicate with the American public about everything that we're doing, but everything that's happening there are really important platforms so thank you. Hannah I think we'll start with you Hi Jen, how are you?

I'm great, how are you? Thank you so much for having us here, I really appreciate it, I'm Hannah Bronfman and I'm a wellness entrepreneur, I'm the founder of hb fit and I wrote a book called "Do What Feels Good" and I'm going to jump right into my first question. here, so research shows that there are many benefits of high-quality preschool associated with children's development, such as improved reading. and math skills, in addition to benefits for children, preschool increases labor force participation among women, increasing family income in President Biden's American Family Plan, calls for free, high-quality universal preschool for all three- and four-year-olds, while this universal access to preschool for all families can be beneficial for low-income families, what are the strategies that the Biden administration is considering implementing to ensure that lower socioeconomic communities have access to these resources?

Well, Hannah, thank you very much for your question, this is very important. topic and while I'm excited about a lot of the things we're doing in the biden-Harris administration, I will say that the American Families Plan and a lot of the potential benefits for child care for early childhood education, as you mentioned, are very close to my heart and I'm very excited and just to add to the important point that you just made, statistics show that children who go to universal preschool instead of daycare are more than 50 percent more likely to go. graduating high school and if that doesn't tell you how important it is to invest in this, I don't know what does, but your question about child care is really important because, as you and I know, a lot of people need families.
psaki holds press conference with social media influencers property brothers benito skinner full
They need comprehensive care, right, they want to send their kids to universal preschool, but they may also need childcare after that or maybe they have kids who aren't three or four years old like you said and they don't have enough money to make a living yet. comes to the end of the month, so what is proposed in the president's American families plan is that for families earning up to 1.5 percent of the state

media

n income they will only pay no more than seven percent of their income for all children under five years of age for child care, that is what is proposed. it's something that we know, like you said Hannah, that's a very important point to get more women into the workforce to ensure that we have a more diverse workforce, we need to make childcare easier and more affordable, so definitely It is a key component of the plan.

Thanks for that response Jen, I'm a new mom and I know you're a mom of two little boys and you're a total boss so you are too. How old is your son? How old is your son? Six months. six months oh my god are you sleeping? um miraculously I'm doing it, wow, you have a miracle baby, my miracle baby, so, I've heard it, so, I just want to ask you, you know, you're an extreme, you know, high stress. position um but you do it with those qualifications so I just wanted to ask if you have any kind of work balance uh tips that you can share with the new mom community of course first I would say and I've learned.
This over time is not that I am an expert but I have a five and a half year old child or she would say five and three quarters or something like that and a three year old child and what I have learned over time is to be gentle with myself to giving myself space and not allowing myself to be judged by other people's expectations and when I took this job, one of the things I was very aware of and I'm sure it's a challenge. For you, since you're dealing with your busy life and having a child, it's how can I have that quality time with them?
You know, I'm not going to be home at five or five fifteen. I'm not going to have that moment where you're reading books and getting ready for dinner and I just realized that I had to make my own way and spend time with my kids, my daughter is like a self-appointed early riser. So sometimes she's awake in my room at 5:30 in the morning or 5:45 in the morning. I spend time with them early in the morning, we have quality time this morning, we read ma'am and before I come to work, sometimes I have a whole life. before coming to work, but those 45 minutes are my time, it's quality time for me, it doesn't have to look like how others see it, but that's one of the lessons that I guess I've learned over time and I hope others Moms who are close followers of yours or other parents and dads are also important, you know, be kind to themselves and don't let other people's expectations of what your work-life balance should be determine what your work-life balance will be. way forward is incredible, thank you so much and really thank you again for having us all here today because this is a very iconic moment for all of us, I think thank you and thank you for talking and thank you for talking. a miracle baby and still looking like a working mom thank you very much okay then draw and jonathan I think you're next.
Can I say my daughter first? I am sure this is so. I don't know if this is it. your TV demographic, but my five and a half year old daughter is obsessed with your show, she loves home shows, that's her amazing ass, more than Disney, we're looking for a

property

sister, um, so she's skilled and can swing the gavel, she gives a lot of criticism just points of view it's a pleasure to meet you, a pleasure to meet you, yeah, and I just want to say also a great opportunity for us and to talk to you about what the families that we work with are looking for.
We have renewed. 470 house

holds

with our programs helped 470 families, so over the years we've learned what's important to families and this is a great way to discuss that, yeah, and also over the years, I mean, we've worked with habitat for humanity by building safe places and affordable housing in the US and around the world so that everyone has a decent place to live, so my question focuses on how this administration is working on the housing challenge , so throughout the pandemic we were told that staying in our homes was the first line. of advocacy to keep our families and communities safe and healthy, but what about those who did not have safe or decent housing or were in overcrowded living spaces?
What is this administration? Do you know what you've learned during the pandemic about the importance of housing and what? can be done to support it, it has been a big issue during the pandemic, as you both know well, given all the important work that you do and you know that there are a number of steps that we have taken as an administration, we have of course supported and put in place An eviction moratorium is in place that has allowed many people to remain in their homes. At the end of April, there were over 6 million renters who had not paid the subsidy according to the US Census, putting them at higher risk of eviction, which really tells you how widespread this challenge was, as both You know, but across the country and you know the pandemic we focused a lot on the health component of this, but this is a dual crisis, it's also an economic crisis and it was impacting people who were having difficulties, were going through a difficult time, staying in their homes, of course, being able to buy homes, but even staying in their homes that they were renting, so that's an area that we support.
A total of $45 billion in rental assistance has been made available to Americans. including 21.5 billion in the American Rescue Plan and that is something that we have disseminated in communities even over the last few months, but what you also know is that we also need to think about how we are investing to address additional challenges. such as issues with the supply chain and that is one of the areas that we have focused on because, as everyone knows, there is a shortage of lumber and construction tools and that is impacting the number of new homes that communities can build, which which is impacting the housing prices that have been around for a while, so we also have a supply chain review that's been underway and we want to pull a lot of levers in the federal government to help address that shortage and see what what we can do to address it and then the third thing I would say is we really want to think about the opportunity we have to move forward to invest in industries, invest in modernizing housing, invest so that we can modernize the way we think about construction opportunities and housing in the future, so it's definitely on our minds and making sure that we allow families to put food on the table to stay in their homes during this still difficult time.
The good employment figures, still seven million people are out of work, is something very important for the president and this entire administration. Awesome thank you. I guess I'll jump in with my little mini bio separate for myself. I'm Jonathan, I'm the hottest

property

brother. I can clearly confirm that everyone else, uh, we, you know, last year we ran a documentary on PBS. And it was really a three-year deep dive into my life, into the secret war that fossil fuel utilities were waging against the renewable energy industry and it was mind-blowing to me and I'm in the home space to learn about A lot of this stuff and some of the research that came back is kind of addressing the question that I have for you according to rewiring america, which is a nonprofit that I'm a part of that's committed to electrifying the economy.
As a path towards addressing the climate crisis there are at least 65 million house

holds

that would save around 27 billion on their energy bills each year if we leveled the cost between efficient electrical space and water heaters compared to appliances that they replace in our homes. for 42 percent of our energy-related emissions, so the only way to meet the president's climate goals would be to electrify every home in America. I know for my audience it is very important to them to save money on their bills and if they can help the planet. Along the way, much better, so my question is how will the American jobs plan catalyze the market so that we can make these appliances the least expensive and most convenient alternative to replacement?
Well, I love this question, I love all the questions, but I love this question because you know people interpret the American jobs plan as an infrastructure plan and it absolutely is, but it's also a green jobs plan and a plan. that will help our climate and that will allow millions of people to go back to work and also build homes. more energy efficiency for so many families, cost savings for them, it's a win-win situation, there are so many benefits, so I would say what the president proposed in the American jobs plan is to fund the construction, rehabilitation and the modernization of more than 2 million homes. across the country that includes an effort that will create new domestic manufacturing opportunities for the electric heating and cooling technology you referenced and that will help make those appliances more efficient as you build more homes and others around the country. country they are building more homes and it is so exciting because there are so many, there are multiple benefits, you know, these houses will cost less because they will be more efficient, people will be able to spend less money on them, it is better for the environment for mother earth, as we call my daughter and I.
That's a lot of benefits, I'll tell you too, although there's another piece where our energy department is working on the advanced water heating initiative and launching it to ramp up. This initiative will increase the use of high-efficiency grid-connected heat pumps. water heaters in residential and commercial buildings that, as I'm sure you know, are two to four times more efficient than conventional water heaters, so we're launching that initiative even as we work to get these funds to modernize two million homes because This is a big priority for this administration and I think that's exciting too because we're in a time where you know what I've seen, the technology is here now, noIt's a situation or a thing, it's good for jobs. good for investment good for the economy so you can't pretend it's not good for jobs and everything so thank you very much at all it's not at all you know rebuilding lead pipes so the kids have water clean drinking that creates jobs ensuring that our infrastructure is uh climate controlled that creates jobs and we can do it in a way that is beneficial to everyone thank you very much it's a pleasure to meet you both okay let's see here say hello to your daughter please right, tell her she'll be very excited she'll be very excited um okay then um amelie i think you're next oh yeah you're next on screen nice to meet you too um my name is emily zilber i just finished my first year at Georgetown University, so, I'm very, very, very honored to be here, go play with us, yeah, go, hoyas, um, I use my platform primarily to raise awareness about

social

justice issues and inform young people in concrete on current national and international issues, so, again, what?
An honor, thank you very much, I am very grateful. I'm going to go directly to my question. The American Families Plan includes an initiative that gives everyone two free years of college. However, a large portion of working-class American families suffer from broader problems than simply having the resources to access an affordable education. You know they work weekly salaries and simply can't afford the time off to attend college. Whether families plan to accommodate families to help them escape structural poverty is a big question. Well, first, the American family plan is a key component of it for several reasons, one is that it's going to invest 109 billion, as you said, in the economy, or that's what we're proposing to help the university free for so many people across the country who otherwise wouldn't have that opportunity, but we also know that some people who might be taking advantage of the opportunity to go back to the college that my mom didn't attend. college until after I was born and I think she was late and she must have been 30, she was 30, some people have children when they go back to college and we have to plan for that too, that's why there is also an opportunity in the American families plan or there are funds that we are proposing, I should say, to help make child care more affordable and more accessible for so many families across the country because we know that that can be a huge factor that sometimes prevents working moms or working moms from from being able to take those college classes whether it's at night or on the weekends or whenever it's convenient, you know, but I think we're really trying to achieve that through this proposal, but also through all of our initiatives.
I'm just getting the university to invest in education, which is from the beginning, this community college initiative is going to help people now, but what we've seen through the statistics is that people who go to universal pre-K go to preschool. instead of daycares. They are much more likely to graduate from high school and want to go to college, so this is also something that we want to invest in early on and get kids from an early age to believe that this can be part of their future and it is not. out of my reach I love that it is being built from scratch exactly better said thank you thank you it was great congratulations I can't believe you are a college freshman very very im

press

ive everything you are doing and thank you for using your platform to speak On all these topics, my sister also went to Georgetown, that's how I know about the Hoya piece, come on, hoyas, thanks, okay, let's see, Curly, you're next.
Hello, oh, I can't hear you. Make sure you're not silent, okay? I literally said hello, oh look, okay, um, my name is Curly Velázquez, I'm from Los Angeles, I'm on uh, I'm part of Buzzfeed's Latin vertical called Federal, like I actually started in the kitchen and worked my way up. until I came to this channel wow, I come from a Salvadoran family that arrived undocumented in the 80s and it is actually something that I am super super proud of, so I was very happy to see that the dreamers were included in the plan of the American family, it's something that really um, stay close to me, I was wondering if there are other similar benefits for dreamers and if there will be other opportunities for people looking to return.
Yes, well, this is a very important question. I'm just going to repeat what you convey just to give everyone all the information so that the plan for American families that the president has proposed and that we want to pass in Congress includes two years of free community college, we have talked a little about that , but that will apply to dreamers. Also, that's an important component, everyone should know that the other piece that is in the plan of the American family because we know that cost can be an issue even when you continue in college, right when you maybe move on from community college, is an increase in Pel subsidies.
We know that there needs to be more funding for people to continue their education, so that's also a component, but in general I think you know that the president has been a long-time supporter of Dreamers, as I think you know, and He believes that a path to citizenship should be possible and should be something that Congress can work together to bring people out of the shadows and make sure they are not afraid of what their future will look like. College and education are part of that. but we also want to move forward on legislation to make sure that dreamers feel protected across the country, even beyond that, thank you very much for that, I mean, we're all watching, the community is very eager to see what's going to happen , thank you for answering that question and yes, we are here, we are definitely seeing it great, you must continue to hold everyone accountable and thank you for using your platform to communicate with so many people, trust that we will appreciate it very much, okay, uh

benito

, hi , jen, I'm good how are you I'm great I love your yellow it's very happy for a Friday afternoon thank you I'm trying I'm trying to bring you the sun great you're bringing it well okay then my name is Benito Skinner I'm I'm a writer, actor and content creator and my question for you is that I come from a family of teachers, both my parents and my sister, and growing up, I often saw them working late into the night, even spending their own money on school supplies for their classes and me.
I believe a school is only as good as its teachers, so after an incredibly difficult year, what does this plan do to support them well? First, thanks to your family. You said your mother and your sister. So, my mom, dad, uh, aunt, sister, wow! a family of educators, a thank you to all of them, teachers are enormously anonymous heroes, heroes who don't wear capes. I think as a mom and so many millions of moms across the country we have an even greater value of teacher for teachers after the last year and seeing what they do, my mother in law is also a retired teacher so I have some in my family too, yes, it's amazing.
She taught my daughter to read over Zoom. Is incredible. I would say that early teachers need more. funding and they need more funding so they don't have to do exactly what you said and we need to incentivize people to teach. You have a family of teachers, but we want it to be an industry and career path that people are excited about. that they are shaping future generations and the young people who will be leaders in our country advancing the American families plan that we are working to advance invest nine billion dollars in teachers and that could cover things like reducing the cost of education for people who want to become teachers, facilitate that path, help current teachers earn additional certifications in high-demand areas, pay teachers more to take on additional leadership roles in the school, such as mentoring new teachers, and it's also funding to help recruit, develop and retain more teachers. of color who can have a particularly impactful role in communities we want to invest in teachers and in teaching we want them to feel as valued as they should feel there and just thank you again to you and your family for all the incredible role that you play.
I have played to shape so many minds oh amazing thank you so much and say hello to all the teachers we love we are obsessed we love teachers I love teachers yes I have one more question it's not that serious but I know you . You are at the inauguration. I need to know if you were in contact with Lady Gaga. I wish I did. I'll tell you. This isn't a very fancy story, but during Lady Gaga's performance, she was actually on a bus on the way to the inauguration. white house because we had to come to work that day so I did a briefing on the first day so I had to come to work and get ready for the briefing so I was on a bus I told you one I'll tell you my a kids love lady gaga I love lady gaga uh I love the documentary I just wish we could keep talking about lady gaga but sometimes we exploit bad romance in the car but I was in the car I'm not in the car I was on a bus with some colleagues we all put it on our phones so we could listen and play, she was amazing so no, I wish I had a Lady Gaga story for you one day, it's the dream out there, we'll bring her back. the white house yes, I love it, it's an open invitation, okay, perfect, talk to you.
Thank you so much for all you do and for addressing all of these important topics. Hello, Jordan. Hello how are you? Great, thanks for doing this and for making the decision. time and I'm going to continue to apologize for being late, I know you guys are busy, don't worry, that's what I appreciate. Well, first of all, my deepest condolences for missing Lady Gaga, I'm so sorry. I'm going to keep the dream alive and pretty wouldn't he come or not, it wasn't who just asked sorry, it wasn't pretty oh yeah, I was right, who was excited about that, yeah, he's coming, Benny's coming, that's right, okay and First of all, I just want to thank you for being a part of this conversation.
I think it's a really innovative approach and I think it's a really important conversation, so thank you very much. I'm Jordan Stratton, I'm with the dad, uh, we're a

media

brand and a community of fathers specifically about celebrating modern fatherhood and everything that looks like, um, so obviously this is a dead end talking about this plan. American family and jobs plan, uh, and obviously there's a lot of great things in both, uh, but my big question is who's going to pay for it. Are you saving me a few hundred dollars a month just so I can pay a few thousand dollars in taxes at the end of the year?
CEO of a major corporation, no you are not yet, maybe in the future, if one day you are, I wish you luck in doing so, but you may have to pay more in taxes, eh, but what I will tell you . is that the presidents proposed a way to pay for these proposals. His conclusion is that no American who earns less than 400,000 a year will pay a penny more in taxes and that is why he has opposed some of the proposals that have been around such as taxing user fees or fuel consumption, that would be a tax on right parents and working parents and people who were just trying to make ends meet, so what you proposed is raising the corporate rate, you should say again what that means.
It was in the first year of the George W. Bush administration that the highest-income Americans, the top one percent, paid a little more to afford his range of proposals. He also proposed that the IRS have the ability to make sure people pay their taxes. In fact, you could raise a lot of money and make sure that some of these companies that paid zero dollars in taxes in recent years have to pay a minimum of 15, so I bet this won't hurt you in any way. You will benefit because, as future children and as a member of the parenting community, you will be able to help tell your parenting community that universal pre-K could be a real thing.
Community college in the future could be a real thing. We'll have a better path to getting our kids into preschool, so there are a lot of benefits and we've come up with ways to pay for it that won't break the backs of working parents, dads, moms, in any way. I will also say that since you gave me the opportunity, I couldn't do this job without my husband and you know, and as a father, he's a father, he's an amazing father, I get emotional, he's amazing, I don't know. why he's an incredible father and you know I'm so lucky, like many working mothers and many working women, to have a partner who takes care of the kids, who takes care of waking up, who does things for bedtime and, uh, I a lot good luck, so greetings to all the parents forto do that, it's very important and thank you, it definitely is and it's a team effort, we just need more dads who sound like your husband and less who consider looking. your kids babysit because come on yeah we don't it's not just about babysitting your kids it's not babysitting can we can that's a t-shirt um we can wear together okay thank you so talking of parenting, I'll spin it just a little safe, so children constantly ask for expensive toys and even when the answer is definitive, no parent often responds with them, perhaps to prevent a nuclear meltdown in the middle of the target, which You know, but then they have to deal with the incessant follow-up questions like why not now and when will that kind of thing happen and I feel like this is a relatable situation for the

press

secretary. um any advice on how to close that effectively.
Well, I think parents could try this with their kids and we'll see if it works. I'm not going to be able to get them that toy now. I'll be happy to discuss this next week. When we get the chance to have this conversation again, we should tell the little kids. we can go back, that's what you're saying, yeah some version of that absolutely like that and we'll see what's possible, put it on the birthday, that's my shorthand tip, something you could ask before your birthday, I love it, add it to the list. Great, add it to the list.
Okay, Chriselle, how are you? Thank you very much for joining us and for your patience. Thanks for inviting me. I'm very excited to be here. I'm Kristel Lynn and, first and foremost, I'm a mom. of two girls, one six years old and the other two, I am the co-founder of bumo, which is reinventing the future of the family and bringing childcare solutions to the workplace so parents can continue to thrive in their careers and not I don't have I have to choose one or the other right, so the American family plan is something that interests me very much, so my first question is that the American family plan will guarantee 12 weeks of pay for family and personal illness for parents and safely for year 10 of the program and then create free pre-K for children ages three to four.
Is there any plan to support working families and parents with children under three years old because there are so many working parents, especially, who have to go back to work immediately? Yes, absolutely, and you're right, I mean this is an important piece because a lot of people have kids under three and I have four, now my youngest is three, but you do and I know a lot of people who follow you. And pay close attention to what he has to say. I do that too. You know, the American Families Plan proposes $225 billion to make child care more affordable and the way we're addressing it is to ensure that families. who earn just one point five percent above the state median income range will only have to pay seven percent, the maximum, I should say, seven percent, to have high-quality, affordable child care, because we know if we're going to get more women back into the workforce if we want to make sure we have a more diverse workforce if we're going to make it possible for many families to participate in the workforce we need to make child care accessible and affordable so That's one part of the proposal that excites me very much.
It also extends the child tax credit for five years, something that will give working families and parents a little extra money in their pockets and hope

full

y also help them make ends meet. That is incredible. I mean, I think working parents need the support more than ever leaving Kobe, so this is really exciting for me and the community. I have a personal question for you, as a mother of two children and as White House press secretary. I'm sure you face many challenges, how do you cope with occupying such a prominent position and at the same time balancing the demands of motherhood?
Thank you for that question and thank you for what you do as a role model as a working mother with two young children and you know it's a balance some days it's hard to make sausages it's a little complicated behind the scenes you know what I'll say is my kids They have done better at what I do, they are grounding me, they bring me down to earth They have no idea what I do in the white house every day nor do they care and they are a reminder of what is important and some days that is the most valuable, the best thing that happens to me in my days, in my three years.
My old son calls himself the hug machine. I don't know if he'll do this forever, but you know, a hug from him that he's very proud of makes any stressful day go away, so you know, that's the first thing. and most importantly, but I will also say that what I have learned over time and you have probably learned is that you should not be too hard on yourself, some days are imperfect, some days I forget to buy a birthday gift for the birthday party. birthday, hey, you. I know some days I forget to send in the permission slip or make sure we have a babysitter for the weekend or whatever.
Sometimes my kids eat Cheetos, that's okay and I try not to be too hard on myself or hard on myself and just stick to what's important, which is probably like those hugs from the hug machine. I love that my kids had McDonald's for dinner last night. Okay, and you know what they got up this morning. They're probably absolutely fine, so there you have it. be gentle with yourself thank you great talking to you its ok brittany hi brittany how are you thank you for having this conversation with us today this is really exciting I am a digital content creator I am also a mother of a 14 year old boy and I am currently pregnant expecting one, congratulations, you look amazing yes congratulations so I wanted to ask you about an issue that has become especially evident during the pandemic: how many children depend on daily meals provided by public schools and I want to ask how the AFP will help families. who are worried about making sure their children eat enough when school is out in the summer and during vacations.
This is a very important question and one that I will say on a personal level breaks my heart. I mean, I live in a suburb. from DC and there are still a lot of people who don't have enough food to put on the table and you wouldn't necessarily think about that in the community that I live in, I will tell you that one of the first things we did in passing the American Rescue Plan is send , we sent checks to tens of millions of Americans and what we saw the impact of just that is that we are going to cut child poverty in half by the end of the year, which will have a huge impact, but we need to do more than that and one of the things that we've proposed in the plan for American families, so there's actually more being sent out in terms of debit cards to families and children across the country that will be sent out throughout the summer because, as you know at Talking about this topic, one of the challenges is also, like you said, when kids are not in school and they don't have those free meals and lunches, so debit cards are going to be phased out thanks to some of the plans already.
We've moved on to kids this summer, but the American Families Plan also proposes additional funding to make sure we're helping these kids you already know get those meals. Help families ensure that families can make ends meet and ensure that nutritional value. What they get from these benefits from the schools is

full

y funded in the schools, but they also get that extra benefit in the summer, so this is a really important issue. I really appreciate you raising it because I don't think we do. let's talk enough about this and the impact of poverty on child nutrition and children's access to basic meals and it's something that is front and center of the family plan and something that we have already worked to approve funding for we can make sure we are helping children.
Making ends meet even in the coming months as we try to turn that legislation into law. Amazing, thank you so much, thank you Brittany, it was really a pleasure talking to you and congratulations again. Very good, Clean and Joanna, you are very patient. you do an amazing job i want you to come to my house everyone does i don't even know thank you for being here and for everything you do oh we are so grateful jen thank you so much for having us um and obviously we are working moms and we both have two kids each and We just want to thank all the teachers.
We couldn't have the business we have if it weren't for the teachers. No, we couldn't make anything work without them. our our new friend

benito

um we had a very similar question about how the American families plan helps support teachers um specifically maybe around mentoring or anything else that maybe you can develop again very near and dear to our hearts yeah absolutely I can't agree with you more um I think all of us probably you too have even more value for teachers after living through the last year and a half and the role that you play and what you've done to teach in remotely during the pandemic and make it safe. back to schools and I even think my daughter will go to kindergarten.
God bless these teachers who will welcome kindergarten children who haven't really been around children, so I will be eternally grateful to the teachers, you know what is interesting and I have also learned a lot about this, given the Impact of the pandemic on schools: Even before the pandemic, schools needed approximately 100,000 additional certified teachers, it is an area where there is a huge shortage across the country and a huge shortage of diversity among teachers as well, which which has a huge impact on children and their future so I think Benito, I think his name is Benny, I'm not sure we have to ask him, but you know he's his question, you know we're proposing to invest nine billion dollars on teachers and part of that is paying for certification, paying for education, paying for hiring, paying for supplies, you know, my mother-in-law is a teacher, I've watched her, she's retired now, so she's been able to help my daughter. which is surprising, but I've seen her over the years, you know, grading papers until midnight, getting supplies, we see so many teachers who don't get paid enough doing this out of their own pocket, that shouldn't be be the case, but we also need to recruit more teachers and make sure that school systems can pay for that, so that's part of what we've proposed. unsung heroes, all heroes don't wear capes, um, and teachers are certainly examples that they should wear capes every day, they should, who shouldn't.
I don't want to use a cape I won't use a cape I would, yeah, I would do it pretty cheap. Bring layers, you thought, magical warm-up, she, I don't know if everyone can pull off Amanda Gorman's amazing look, but yeah, I don't even get it. I started if I could pivot a little bit, sure we had the incredible good luck of interviewing former President Barack Obama, oh yeah, I mean, you know, yeah, it's no big deal, we'll never get over it, no, but yeah, we took a shot fast. with him and I want to see if rapid fire with you could be a cool possibility, sure, let's do it right, it's very difficult, okay, I'm ready, candy or champagne, it depends on the time of day, I would say candy for most of the day that be like an elf I would eat candy with every meal if that were an option I'm an adult I could but it wouldn't be very healthy I do it but it's okay I'm with you I must be a sweet spirit animal I see you Jen it's okay digital or paper , mostly digital, even books, but I'm a little old school and I still subscribe to the Sunday New York Times, which when I see it in my driveway I get a little excited and I also like old books.
I'm a little upset. Okay, next case or walk guac. This is a key and quick question. It could make the headlines. Alright. Potus or flotus lotus more organized. I don't know why I whispered that she is a professor of Of course, she is more organized, I think if the president was sitting here, he would also recognize that, um, totally, I'm pretty convinced, I haven't done a quick analysis of her organization, uh , line by line, um, and the president obviously is. quite organized given that he is the president but she is in this she is a teacher she is right yes she is one I would follow her organizational methods yes we see you well thank you very much for this incredible opportunity thank you it was great talking to you thank you for everything you you do thank you Well, thank you all so much for joining me and thank you for everything you do to raise so many important issues with your audiences and hopefully we'll do this again, maybe in the White House we'll have to bring you all here at some point. thank you very much yes thank you very much thank you very much
