1:00 pm
masks. it's an undefined phrase. but in terms of the masks that you're trying to procure, is it n-95 or -- >> we'll have more i expect in the coming days on that. right now just so people understand the back story here, the history, i should say is we've distributed more than 30 million masks to food banks and health centers. states have done that as well. we have a stockpile of 700 million high quality masks in the government and widely available across the country. what we're talking about here is making high quality masks available to the american people for free. there's a lot of ranges of high quality masks. we'll have more details next week. >> i know you're limited to what you can say about politics. the rnc said today they ask for
1:01 pm
candidates not to participate in debates like has been done. do you or the president have any reaction to that move by the rnc? >> the president has participated in many debates over the course of his career and believe that they play a role in allowing the american people to hear from candidates and where they stand. so i think it's a question best posed to the rnc on what they're so afraid of. >> would he participate in a debate outside the commission? >> i'd point you to the dnc. >> the president when he spoke to reporters, he spoke about the voting rights push in the past tense. he said we missed this time. what is the political value in moving forward with the show votes given that the president effectively has acknowledged that this process has ended and
1:02 pm
risks potentially shine ago light on democratic division. >> i think you all can count who is for and against each vote, whether it's changes to the senate rules or supporting these voting bills themselves. i think it's very -- people publicly know where senators stand at this point in time. ly leave it to -- we'll leave it to work with lock step with leader schumer on that. ultimately this is about continuing to press, to move forward on the protection of voting rights and to move it to elevate this issue for people across the country. of course, any senator will be put in the position of determining what side of history they'll stand on. that's the purpose of the vote. >> the president spoke about voter subversion. but neither the freedom to vote act or the john lewis voting rights act deal with subversion or focus more on suppression.
1:03 pm
would the president want to see democrat it's if this process does move forward in the future address laws in these 19 states, some of which would allow for the overturning of a free and fair election? >> the john lewis voting rights act actually makes it illegal for state officials to fail or refuse to certified the aggregate tabulation of votes or certify the election of candidates receiving such votes for office. that is addressing a root problem. we're seeing that in states. what these laws are meant to do is provide baselines for protections for voters. that is an important part of doing that. there's more to build from there. that is an important component that sometimes everyone is not always aware of in the john lewis voting rights act. >> one related question about the u.s. postal service. yesterday the board of governors
1:04 pm
elected a new chairman. someone who has expressed support for post master lewis dejoy. what is the white house position on the persistent delivery that the post office is receiving anecdotally and dejoy's current place as post master general. does he deserve to have that role? >> i love anecdotal data. going back to the holidays, 97 or 98% of packages from the postal service were delivered on time. there may be anecdotes from those 1 or 2%. that's -- 98% across the country. we have expressed concerns in the past about dejoy's leadership. it has not changed. ly say and i know this has been raised and i'm going to use it as an opportunity, many members of the postal service including
1:05 pm
leadership have expressed confidence and an an interest in applying delivering tests to people across the country and their confidence in doing that. so we take them at their word and certainly we're encouraged by the data that we saw from december. >> charles: the white house just reaffordable care acting to the supreme court's slap down of the mandate for large companies. key democrats slap down the president's push to change the filibuster is another big news item. we'll get into that this hour. businesses breathing a sigh of relief. i'm charles pain in for neil cavuto. this is "your world." republican senator roy blunt will be joining us. first to peter doocy at the white house with the reaction. peter? >> charles, the new guidance from the white house, same as the old guidance. even though the supreme court has ruled that key parts of this vaccination requirement for businesses is unconstitutional, the white house is saying
1:06 pm
businesses should do it anyway. >> president biden, you'll see this in his statement will call on businesses to step up, including fortune 100 companies, institute vaccination requirements to protest workers, customers and communities. we have to keep working together in order to get this done to save more lives. >> she mentioned a forthcoming statement from the president. here's is. i'm disappointed that the supreme court has chosen to block common sense life saving requirements for employees at large businesses that were grounded squarely in science and the law. now critics are coming forward to reiterate that they have not been anti-vaccine, but rather anti-vaccine mandate. >> this supreme court ruling to me is a big win for the american people and for freedom. it's a big loss for president
1:07 pm
biden and for big government. i'm a doctor. i'm pro vaccine. i'm anti-mandate. to me the mandate was a massive overreach by the government. now to know that there's 100 million workers in this country that work for private companies that now are not subject to this mandate, i think that's a good thing for our economy. >> a very challenging afternoon for president biden. he went to capitol hill to meet with senate democrats. came out upset saying that he did not know if they could get voting rights done. basically while he was motorcading back, the supreme court handed this down essentially undercutting something that the administration has been promoting for months. charles? >> charles: thanks, peter. we're going to get to the business reaction. but first, let's bring in carrie severino. one of your comments that i
1:08 pm
followed is a question that was asked during this was that this whole thing was "trying to squeeze and elephant into a house hole with osha. is that one of the many tells that this was the decision? >> yeah, that was justice alito in oral arguments last week. the mouse hole is the extent that osha has. they're supposed to be dealing with the workplace and emergency things that come up. not only does this go beyond what happens in the workplace but it's not a washing place risk like having to wear a hard hat. it's something that is not an emergency in the way that the short circuiting the regulatory system is supposed to work. it's not a complete comprise that the court would say this. yeah, we're not going to get in to weighing it's a good rule or bad rule but osha doesn't have
1:09 pm
the authority to do it in this emergency way where they evade the regular process that they would normally have to go through. >> charles: many people that criticized this from the beginning felt the administration knew this probably would be unconstitutional, found the best agency to try to sneak it through and obviously that didn't work. white the white house, their argument that people are dying every day and this is an emergency that the supreme court should have taken in to consideration. >> well, look, the constitution doesn't go away in times of a pandemic. what the court pointed out is, it's one thing if there's something that there was some melt down at a plant that they needed to address in a quick way in one workplace. this is not something that just happened overnight, this is a pandemic that has been with us for two years. the administration announced this rule in september. they don't have an actual
1:10 pm
regulation until november and didn't enforce it until january. if this needs to happen overnight, it wouldn't be behaving this way. it's not to say it's an important issue, but this is not the type of thing they're talking about when we talk about circumventing the regulatory process that we go to. >> is a 6-3 decision, all the conservative justices going to same way. moments ago, president biden saying he was disappointed in the supreme court to block common sense live saving requirements. this is the second time this week he's taken a shot at the supreme court. are you concerned at all about the relationship -- i know the framers knew this might be the case and they designed it a certain way. but it feels like there's a growing animosity toward doing something to make the supreme court friendlier to this particular white house. >> the president is entitled to
1:11 pm
his pen about the decision. what concerns me are the types of decisions where he floundered the court's thought. we saw that in the eviction mandate case. the court said it's unconstitutional. he went to opposite direction. and the concerns about the court packing initiative. if you're trying to intimidate the court saying we're going to pack extra justices like fda failed in doing so, that is the kind of thing that concerns me. he welcome to disagree with the court. president trump did that. we need to make sure that there's no this problem where the executive branch is trying to reshape the judicial branch to try to intimidate them. that would be out of line. >> charles: thanks, carrie. fantastic work. elaine parker from the job creator's network is celebrating today's news. elaine, this started at 3,600 up
1:12 pm
to $36,000. this would have been a financial burden in fines. it's had a major negative impact on businesses anyway. >> absolutely. it's a good day. it's a great day for all americans. it's a great day for our small business owners because from the beginning, the administration flamed this as a big business mandate and the reality is it affected businesses that had 100 employees or more. the administration's own small business administration defines a small business as any company under 500. we're concerned about that range. that's why we took up this loose. the first small business organization to file against the biden administration and the first to petition the supreme court and asking them to block this mandate. so we're very excited that the supreme court blocked this mandate. would have had a disproportionately negative effect on our small businesses that can least afford it when they face massive inflation and
1:13 pm
labor shortages. >> charles: that is one of the interesting -- i wouldn't call it irony but certainly aspects of this. if you look at the lawsuits, from your lawsuit, national retail federation, the national federation of independent businesses, truckers. all of the folks that we needed to help get us out of if supply chain issue, to help keep us alive and the networks going. they were the most impacted by this and felt like the white house was done deaf. did you get a chance to reap out and say this isn't the way to go about this? >> we did speak with the white house and osha officials when they were bringing -- writing the rule and stated our case. we talked about our small business owners that were co-plaintiffs on our lawsuit. you mentioned trucking. we had a trucking company in the northeast -- i'm sorry, in the midwest who was a refrigerated trucking company. they were moving food from place to place and delivering to
1:14 pm
grocery stores. they were deemed essential during the pandemic and during the shut downs. but this mandate was going to affect him. he couldn't afford to lose a single trucker. he was experiencing massive labor shortages. he said what is the science between somebody who has 99 employees and somebody that has 100 employees? my guys are going down to my competition who has under 100 employees that is not effected and then i can't make my a hugn on our small businesses. this is a huge win for small businesses, a great day in america and i hope the administration does not continue their legal fight when it is sent back to is sixth circuit. >> charles: or any acts of intimidation. by the way, congratulations. i want to switch to this. >> will i continue to support these bills,ly not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division
1:15 pm
infecting our country. >> would you change your rules with 2/3s of the people are present? democrats and republicans changes the rules to make the place work better. getting rid of the filibuster doesn't make it work better. >> charles: democratic senators saying no to joe. keeping the filibuster as the president tries to bust it to push voting rights legislation. chad pergram has more. >> president biden has paid congressional democrats three visits in recent months. he's employed democrats to pass the touch stones of his domestic agenda. today they huddled with senate democrats about changing the filibuster to pass voting rights. >> i hope we can get in tone. honest to god answer is i don't know whether we can get this done. >> democrats need all of their
1:16 pm
members on board to change the filibuster just for voting rights. >> the senate made a powerful and strong precipitation for us to get this done. we're going to do everything we can to pass these two bills. >> there is about the math. kristen sinema and joe manchin oppose changing the filibuster custom. >> the senate's 60-vote threshold has proved maddening to members of both political parties in recent years to save the country from radical policies. depending whether you serve in a majority or the minority. >> it takes 60 votes to end a filibuster. 51 for a nuclear option to change the filibuster provision. brian shots tested positive this week. so even if democrats had the votes, they could not implement a filibuster change. there's no remote voting in the senate. charles? >> charles: now to missouri
1:17 pm
senator roy blunt. senator, the president saying they may not get the voting rights through is now of course -- it's been a rough week. he's lashed out. he was livid today coming out of the caucus meeting. where does this go from here? >> well, i think what the senate will be doing is moving forward as the unique the body the senate is where we have the ability to reach some consensus before you move forward. the option is what happens in the house every time the house changes parties. they send a lot of bills over to the senate that aren't going anywhere because they're too drastically headed in one direction. the next time, they would have reversed those bills if they were to have become law. that is certainly not what you need. also what we have here is an attempt to once again federalize something that has been working
1:18 pm
well for a couple hundred years. i think states and local election officials are the place for elections to be conducted. there's been a consensus on that for decades including president obama in 2016 saying the diversity of the election system in america is one of the strengths of the system. the bill that came over from the house is 765 pages. it's not a reiteration of the 12-page 1965 voting rights act. it's a federal takeover of elections. it's not the right way to go. i think democrats are not going to be able to get this done. more importantly, you had senator sinema and other democrats may now step up and say we're not for changing the rules. we don't want the house to become the senate. the senate impact of that uncertainty, the regulatory impact of that constant uncertainty would all be bad. i hope we can continue through
1:19 pm
the rest of this congress to maintain that unique ability that the senate has to where you have to work with the other side. >> charles: right. of course, that's senator manchin and sinema have expressed that is a sacred part of the job. what about the messaging part of this? the notion -- it dovetails there overarching that if the republicans win the mid-term, democracy in itself is at great risk. that this country will never look the same. now, you know, you mentioned the voting rights act of 1965. it was extended in 2006 for another 25 years. the narrative is that there's an urgency or lots of folks including black americans that will lose the right to vote. how dangerous is that? >> well, it's very dangerous. what the democrats are doing here is destroying faith in a system that people should have every reason to have faith in. they're looking at states that
1:20 pm
leaned forward in 2000 and did things because of the pandemic environment. when that election was over, those states looked back and i think in every case they kept some of the things that they thought should become permanently part of the system, but other things they might have done like drive-in voting and mail-in ballots in various states didn't meet the long-term standard. i haven't found a state that has made steps forward in this process from 2018 than this list of states the democrats are talking about. they generally have more early voting, more places to vote, more days of voting than states like new york or connecticut or delaware. i think the idea that republican legislatures are trying to take away voting rights and democrat legislators are not is just not true.
1:21 pm
i'd be glad to debate this bill. it's not what our friends say it is. the more people look at it, the more they realize. you have tax money for politicians for campaigns, you make the federal elections commission a partisan entity. there's so many things in there that people don't want and eliminating so many things like voter i.d. and no ballot harvesting that people want to see continue to be where they are now. >> charles: absolutely. i share that hope with you. people take it upon themselves to learn more about that. we just had the supreme court ruling moments ago. siding with business against the president's vaccine mandate. how surprised were you? >> well, not very surprised. i'm going to take a little different tact here. i think one of the big winners today is probably the biden administration by not having to go forward with something that
1:22 pm
had all kinds of consequences that they hadn't anticipated. just heard the person you had talking about various businesses where you could go from the 100 employer business to the 90 employer business. you can go from the 100 employed more policed force to the 20 employee police force or fire force, people working at grocery stores that have more than 100 employees. what happens if they decide they can make as much money working somewhere across the street and if you had things to put on the shelves, another problem that we're facing right now, even if you had things to put on the shelves, you wouldn't have people to put them on the shelves. they might be some secret sighs of relief going on at the white house right now that this is a problem that they can now think about in a different way. i'm pro vaccine, but i've been anti-mandates because i think the mandate has had a counter
1:23 pm
productive impact on people getting vaccines. >> charles: i think you're right. i want to segue off of that, senator. bring up the topic of inflation. it's roaring throughout the country. the consumer price index, second highest in history. we're back to 1980s numbers. part of this is the inability to get workers to go to work. kicking people out of jobs, airlines say oh, it's weather. maybe it was some of that was the mandate. again, shouldn't we be working somehow to fix this? this is a tax on all americans, particularly those on a lower economic scale. >> it has dramatic impact on people that are at the lower economic part of the scale. the things that you have to have, a way to get to work a way to heat your house, groceries from the store. when those go up, 50%, 20%, 15%, you don't have any real options
1:24 pm
except to cut back on the necessities what you would have done two years ago with the extra money, you don't have the opportunity to do now. it's an insidious tax on people if the government doesn't manage the economy in a way that maintains a low inflation rate, putting 1.9 trillion in the american recovery plan in to the economy in a very short period of time, something democrats did all by themselves in march has had an inflationary impact and the build back better or build back broker campaign would have had the same impact. i hope we continue to resist adding new government programs on top of an economy that is already overheated. >> charles: to your point, even larry summers warned the administration do not do this. these are the consequences he warned up.
1:25 pm
senator, senator lindsey graham called on mitch mcconnell to acknowledge that donald trump is the leader of the republican party. take a listen. >> all i'm saying. i like mitch a lot. he's got a lot to be proud of. but if you want to be a leader in 2022, i expect president trump to run for president. you don't have to agree with everything president trump does or says. i don't. but you have to have a working relationship because our party will not do as well as we could or should if we don't have a team approach from 2022 to 2024. >> charles: senator blunt, what do you think of that? >> well, as you know, charles, this is my last year in the senate. i won't be here the next time we pick a leader. if by what lindsey means that we need to work together and talk about what a difference it will make if we win these elections, i'm for that. but republican senate leader needs to be chosen by republicans in the senate. one thing senator mcconnell has
1:26 pm
never done is put our members out there on a vote that wasn't going to pass like the vote that democrats are taking this week and they'd have a hard time explaining at home. those are the things that you need to look at when you're looking at senate leadership or house leadership. i've been a leader in the house and the senate. i think those decisions need to be made by the senators that come together next year and form a new conference and when you look at the track record of mitch mcconnell, i think it's pretty good. >> charles: i want to say, congratulations on an amazing career. if we never get a chance to speak on television again, senator blunt, it's been a pleasure. >> i hope we get to talk again. one of the reasons i wanted to be on the program, you were doing it and i'm a big admirer. >> charles: thanks, sir. >> thanks, charles. >> charles: coming up, should democrats be worrying because of
1:27 pm
surging inflation? lee carter is here with more. now i'm ready for someone to call me mom. at northwestern mutual, our version of financial planning helps you live your dreams today.

1:32 pm
voters from gaining greatser access to the ballot. this is an important issue. we're seeing it happen across the country. the reason it's important is balk republican-led legislatures are enacting the laws because they're afraid of black and brown power, this is white supremacy reinventing itself and limiting the power and voices of black and brown voters in this country. >> charles: gianno? >> that sounds like an analysis from legally blond. that is not the truth. african americans across the country are pissed off. why? joe biden made certain promises to the community to get them to put him in office and he's not kept not a single one of them. he told him he would pass police reform. democrats didn't want to work with republicans. he said he was going to get people back to work. the unemployment rate for african americans is over 7%. he said he was going to do a number of things that just have not continue to fruition. now you have leaders in the
1:33 pm
black community that are calling out the inaction of the democratic party and what they continue to do. use these issues like voting or anything that is involving to rally african americans and try to win elections. it's un-american and is not what we should be seeing daily out of any of our political parties. >> charles: crystal, you've seen the democrats use the pain and suffering of black americans whether it's for solar energy and climate change and tax breaks for rich people and people that live in the northeast. you know, do you ever consider that if some young black kid 14 years old watched president biden's speech in atlanta, they must feel like this is not -- the country he painted is not the country i live in. my family is from alabama. my grandmother was warned not to vote. she was scared that when she
1:34 pm
went to vote, they were put in a room and scared they would be hurt. the door opened up and it was martin luther king. he said you can vote. we didn't live in that world. should we promote that this idea that this country hates black people like that? >> i don't think we should ever promote and idea that a country that we live in doesn't like us or value us or value our opinion. but what black voters are saying right now, what have you done for me lately? that's why we're asking this biden administration. we were promised voting rights and policing reform. we were promised the child tax credits that have expired and the social spending plan provisions that would help the economic situation of many black americans in this country and it's not passed because build back better has not passed. so if you're a black voter watching what is happening in this country, you're thinking what has this administration done for me and why do we have to continue to have these speeches rather than action and failure by leaders like kirsten sinema that won't make the vote to pass voting rights.
1:35 pm
this is critical. >> charles: gianno, i'll give you the last word. people should understand this child tax credit. folks making $400,000 have the money. a large chunk of people making like $25,000 didn't get anything because they don't file irs. so they got nothing, zero. this is what i mean about being used. letting your pain and suffering being used to push things that don't help you in the first place. gianno, last word to you. >> 48% of african americans now approve of joe biden. that number has significantly declined and will continue to decline because joe biden made commitments that he will not keep. and african americans need to realize this is not about joe biden. democrats do this years after year. they continue to use us and we cannot have that. >> charles: if you keep giving the vote away for nothing, you

1:41 pm
great to be with you. this is something that has bipartisan support. port legislation. we don't think that members of congress ought to be able to be capitalizing on their positions of power when you make important policy positions on big tech, big pharma, big insurance and in the wake of obamacare. you shouldn't be trading and making profits while you're serving in public office. you and i are market people. i want people to make their wealth and prosperity and come to capitol hill and serve. put yours in a trust or you shouldn't be buying and selling equities that you're voting on, issues and policies that direct them. >> charles: that makes sense. no one should believe that there's any improprieties going
