"A legal right to go vote. So we have a sense of what poll-watchers, what they can do right can't show up at your local thugs. You know you're you're organized guys with the guns and you can't harass people like they were accused of doing back in eighty one but what can they actually do? So poll-watchers for the most part in every state or or watching bowls they watch things they make sure the machines don't clog. If they do get clogged, they make sure those ballots are processed properly. They make sure that people's registrations have been checked in the proper way or however that might be in some states. I think ten states poll-watchers can actually challenge the eligibility of voter most poachers cannot talk to voters, but they can have poll workers talked to voters and ask questions about their eligibility if there is some valid reason to to believe they might not be. Eligible. To vote and typically that means they are you know poll-watchers will often utilize public records and change of address forms switching and how does how does that work like you wouldn't know if I just come up to my polling place and their this poll watcher what does he cross-referencing? How does he? How is he or she engaging with me? You wouldn't know what my addresses. With you and I think that's important that people should not worry about like a poll-watcher coming interrogating them and if that's happening, they should tell a poll worker because the poll workers are the ones who are supposed to talk to. But they might have a list of everyone in your community who's died. Who shouldn't be the polls because obviously they're dead and? They're gonNA. Might have a list of people who have moved into public records that exists that poll-watchers heaven the past used to sort of cross reference and the reason this is hypothetical and a little bit vague is that we haven't seen this in a long time. But What what experts tell me they can do is look at those things and if they say we'll attr- mainly from that address you know recently moved they could say can the poll worker make sure their addresses up to date but the problem is that particularly with in communities of color a Lotta people have similar names statistically more likely to have similar names and also data entry America is not that great. So you're public records might be inaccurate. And that's where you worry about the gummed up works you but an eligible voter going I'm totally eligible to vote I registered last month I'm on the books that's me and some guy saying, nope, that's not you know that's the worry now not every state allows those challenges. It's it's a minority of states that allow those challenges, but they can be influential and I looked up the states that are there like Iowa Minnesota Michigan those are influential states. So. which do John Smith, you go to vote and early in their some poll-watcher who? Refers your name to the poll worker? What recourse do you have your challenge? What can you do? Stay there and vote a provisional ballot. Absolutely. You're always eligible to vote your provisional ballot. And then call your local board of elections and say, what do I need to do to make sure my vote counts there's also hotlines you can call with questions or To report these things at one, eight, six, six, our vote. The nonpartisan hotline and reporters like me reviews the information that those hotlines are getting to make sure and identify these problems. So, we know Republicans have a strategy for election day the trump administration is. Rallying their army for trump and we know that the rules vary depending on what state you're in but are Democrats doing the same thing like they watches gearing up in the similar way? Democrats absolutely will have poll-watchers as well. They're looking more into. Voter protection efforts they're. Encouraging hotlines like this to try and make sure they're voters ballots count I was chatting with Tom. Perez. Earlier this week and I asked him I was like how worried are you about these poll-watchers that we keep hearing about because that's a big question who shows up how many people show up and he said you know we've got our own armies of lawyers ready to go to court if we see problems. But he also made a really interesting point. He said, you know millions of people have already voted in by election day, which is sort of that day that we worry about that powder keg, we worry about tensions bubbling up millions more people have voted. So you know in Arizona where male voting is incredibly common. He said eighty or ninety percent of people are already going to have voted. So the poll-watchers we're going to be there are watching ten percent of the electorate a lot less opportunity for problems if the ballots have already been counted. So when you talk to Tom is the head of the DNC and he's not overly concerned. It doesn't sound like he's like oh my God what sweet. Panicking here. But I mean, they aren't being ready. You know okay I don't think anyone's panicking on the top brass that I talked to But I do think they're getting ready. You Know Democrats have been very aggressive with going to court over any impediments to the vote. So we talked a lot and we went back to his reenlisted eighty eighty-one and obviously we're projecting a lot given the the sense of anxiety. A lot of folks feel in this very, very high selection Do you get the sense that are we are we over hyping this a little bit our concerns? He kind of just is fueled by this moment we're in or do you think folks should really be concerned about this intimidation? I sure hope our concerns are not pan out. You know I- election reporters just love elections and elections to run smoothly and safely. And I think there's fear and darkness and there's fear when you say there's a rigged election and when you dig into the rules and you see that there voter fraud and you know who the poll-watchers are and you know what their responsibilities are. Your more empowered and you're empowered to go and vote I mean I encourage people always ask me like well, what can I do to make sure my vote counts because I've been covering this for so long I've read all the rules and I say you know check your voter-registration double check your polling place double check your polling place again and go and vote, and if you have any issues file that provisional ballot knowledge is power.

"We, could we ever in life? Hundred percent I mean. How how I deal with that is I mean it's been really good for me for my career. Honestly. But my mental health it's shaky sometimes dealing with these folks. It is a lot but I do think that like it has taught me the value in not knowing things. It's All of a lesson, but like there's so much we don't know and it's okay to wait for information and it's okay to. Sort of have theories and ideas but a lot of conspiracy theorists and a lot of these conspiracy groups it's not.

"Of that movement and continuing that wave if it were for them particularly to squad I. Mean we're talking about four women of color going up against the white supremacist patriarchy of our country from inside the system, speaking truth to power, calling it out and destroy it in all its forms, so we're following the footsteps of those. Those four amazing women of Color and following the stand on the shoulders of our ancestors in doing this work, so it it means is, it feels like America's is ready in the world is ready for this transformative change. We are part of, but as we know, we got to continue to do the work like I I personally. I didn't run for office just. Just to get in the office. If I, get an office out, do anything down. Mas stayed behind home, and that tried to be a part of this, but now that I'm in office as I said during my speech on election night time causing trouble is time the speech. OOFTA power and bring attention to the issues that Matamoros now look forward to doing that. Now you you brought up the squad, which is inspired a lot of people across the country, but again they have taken some shots even from with inside the democratic machine. If and when you get to Washington with this grassroots support with this super progressive kind of agenda. How does that translate into the big? Political process in the big de-democrats Democrat, and how do you actually navigate those spaces coming? When the winds of that very aggressive progressive push to quote fifty cent? Yeah, y'all got a purple Hoffa war and I never left the city. We're pretty strong. You know we're we're. We're battle-tested, you know. We understand that there will be pushed back, but we also know there are many in the house many in the Senate and most importantly voters throughout the country who agree with the policies that we are pushing forth poll. Poll after poll after poll shows support for Medicare for all poll after poll show support for green new deal, and particularly now where in the biggest crisis, since the Great Depression and what happened during the Great Depression FDR implemented a new deal and the workers progress administration and federal jobs guarantee creating millions of union jobs. That's exactly what we need right now, so there are many people who continue to push back, but police have the majority of the people in this country behind us and on our side. As an education expert, and with your history I, wonder what you think about the children of our communities who have been out of school who've been impacted by all of this in ways that we won't see for years and the trauma. How do we get them back into classrooms? And how do we get them? Hold from everything that's been shipped away. We need the full resources of the federal government to be brought to bear to make sure our children can return to school safely and in environments where we can accelerate their learning number one. We need to hire more teachers. Because in order, the lower class is, we need more teachers to teach smaller groups of students number two. We need to be innovative and creative in the spaces that we are using classrooms learning spaces so right now here in New York. City, we have theorized and convention centers and corporate offices that. That aren't being used because of the pandemic does need to be retrofitted and created as learning spaces, so we could give kids as much face time with with an adult teaching them as possible. The online learning platforms are inadequate They don't meet the needs of the majority of our kids. Particularly children with special needs when I say resources from the federal government I mean money directly to school districts so that they can retrofit spaces to be alignment with CDC recommendations, which has increased ventilation, cleaning, mask, gloves and everything that's needed there. That's the only way parents and grandparents and others are going to feel safe sending their children to school. Obviously, these are really tough times. What is Jamal Bowman due to stay hopeful to stay sane stay grounded. What's Your Regiment had? Another great question, man I I am lucky and blessed to have an amazing partner and my wife Melissa Oppenheimer Boming. We've been married for several years. I think fives. Don't don't tell her that I. Trouble intro but we. We've been together for several years. We've been married for several years. We have two children. We have a home, but very lucky that just have this stable environment here number two. I try to do the best I can to eat right and exercise on a consistent basis, madam, sound small, but in terms of remaining balance in terms of my own sort of mental health and energy eating right and exercising on a consistent basis, and really paying attention to diet, and those particular habits, and doing everything I can in terms of prayer and meditation and just staying center a spiritually. To just help deal with everything that's happening in the world and transition to this new responsibility I. Have you know as a as a member of Congress? I have one last pretty serious question man when you get to Washington, D. become part of the squad like an honorary member. You get to hang out to pin a lapel pin or something listen. I'm hoping for pin a t shirt. And I'm hoping to be not an honorary member, but an actual member of the squad. You know so I'm Gonna I'm GonNa Start soon as they count the final vote I'm going to start lobbying to be a part of the squad as soon as they're done. Jamaa Bowman. Thank you brother for your time. Really appreciate it. This was. This is fantastic. Thank you awesome, thank you. That was Jamal. Bowman the Democrat running to serve the sixteenth congressional district of New York. and. A separate news update before we go last week. We reported on the Justice Department's plan to resume federal executions for the first time in seventeen years, the first of four scheduled executions was supposed to be today in Indiana. But with just hours to spare, a judge blocked off federal executions for now saying the method of lethal injection. Unconstitutionally cruel and unusual punishment. The Justice Department is appealing the decision. Into America is produced by Isabel Angel- Alison. Bailey Aaron Dot Max Jacobs Barbara, Rab and Clare Tie I should turner and pre Var thon.

"Feel talked to a doctor who was working around the clock at one of these clinics to serve this population. I talked to Dr Meredith Niece and she is the medical director of community health clinic. I'm also an internal medicine physician so she lives in Charlotte she from Charlotte just like any these clinics. They deal with that population. They're there to help with that population. We certainly are serving a lot of the working poor. Which is a real challenge for us. these are mostly folks. Who have jobs often? They have multiple jobs but are living under the poverty. Line often with many family members Also living with them. We have a lot of patients who have unstable housing situations who rely on public transportation to get places and Dr Niece. Eighty three percent of her patients. Don't have insurance right now. The lowest end of our sliding scale is twenty five dollars which is charged that if patients are able they pay when they come for an appointment so when eighty three percents of clinics patients are paying about twenty five dollars a visit. It as you can imagine doesn't come anywhere close to covering costs now with the corona virus pandemic and all the stress on the healthcare system. How were clinics like Dr Nieces? How are they holding on? We're still early days. This is a a big shock to the system. And I think it's really. She says pretty openly. We're we're really seeing the the huge systemic gaps in the healthcare system. As we've built it one of the interesting things about Karenna viruses that it almost simplifies the picture of The difficulty of uninsured. It's bringing to light some systemic problems that have existed for a long time. You're getting access to care is a major issue. We're seeing a massive influx of requests for new patient visits which is a big problem for a lot of reasons one of which is that problem that we are a relatively small clinic in. Just don't have space. We already had a three month. Wait list before we had this. Massive employee of requests for new patient visits a lot of these patients who are requesting visits. It's because they're afraid they have corona virus and we would like to help with the triage of that but there's a lot of complicating factors in terms of our limited resources. One is testing. We have a total of twenty five tests available before Congress said that all tests for free before they pass that bill last week she had to send someone to get tested and it cost him fifty bucks they said. I'm going to pass because I won't be able to have groceries this week if I do that. So we ended up bringing them into our site and one of our providers went out to the car and swabbed their nose in their car and order test them for Corona virus. And we're we're still awaiting those results so this is not a scalable option for these patients and we have over one hundred thousand patients or individuals in Charlotte without insurance. So my question is what's going to happen to the growth of corona virus in that population. And the answer is that it's going to spread quickly. So how else is Dr? Niece's clinic being affected by the pandemic. Everyone's struggling to get supplies. These clinics are further behind. Because they don't stock a lot already right because they don't have a lot of money they have to be a little bit wise about how they're spending that money. We keep the minimal supply of paper or of extra exam. Rooms supplies that we can because we can't afford to be overstocked. Then there's the other aspect of social distancing which they're trying to practice and encourage you know where their clinic is is tough to get to you have to take the bus or public transportation to get there. Then they have to walk into the front door and they had to go up to the third floor into an elevator. There's just a lot of possible contact there so they're trying to get people to onto telehealth options doing email phone and video and the administration has has pushed for healthcare providers to do that as well but it gets really tough for these community health clinics while that twenty five dollar co-pay that our patients worked very hard to pay us a lot. It's also all the money that we make off of our eighty-three percent uninsured visits. And if we switched to telephone video or visit that will turn in two zero income for our clinic and we will be working for free. They're not running these people down to pay and they're just kind of eating it and they're they're fine with that because that's what the work is but it's making that margin even tighter and it's making them really scared of what their future can be as they're continuing to treat the krona vires pendant. The truth is the budget set community health centers across the country where it site before the pandemic it about seventy percent of their funding comes from the federal government and even though community health centers. Get bipartisan support. Since Two Thousand Sixteen Congress has only approved money to support them for two years at a time. The current funding runs out in. May the first corona virus aid package that Congress passed included an additional one hundred million dollars for these health centers but because some centers operate multiple sites. That comes out to less than eight thousand dollars per clinic. Dr Ni says. That's nowhere near enough to make up for the lost income during this crisis. So what's at stake? So I mean we're we're we're talking about them possibly having to shut their doors if nothing changes to that model. How long do you guys can you hang on I? He does that but I don't think I'm emotionally prepared to answer that question. This is the reality of this. Is the reality of working community. Health particularly in a state with uninsured rate is as high as North Carolina's. I sometimes will use the analogy that in organization In poverty is is not unlike a family in poverty where it's just kind of one crisis to the next and you often feel like there's no way you're gonNA make it onto the next one but somehow you keep moving forward the congressional funding though and. May I mean is obviously key to be renewed right? Would centers like yours able to stay open if they didn't reauthorize that funding? No No if if Congress doesn't reauthorize the community health clinics says the end of the Community Health Center program. It would be absolutely just an unmitigated disaster for our Overall healthcare system especially in the setting of the corona virus pandemic we mentioned there are thirty million uninsured Americans across the country. Right now what? What are their options in his anything being done to protect Those communities so there several states that are reopening that ACA enrollment state's asking for waivers from the federal government to expand care even non-expansion states. They're asking for waivers to use those Medicaid dollars in a different way to maybe address treatment had on but right now for non-expansion states the options are are still pretty limited so when we mentioned those big numbers thirty million uninsured in the cost of delivering care to them Sometimes the individuals get lost and penny is one of those individuals. How is she just dealing with all of this right now? I think she's struggling with it. A great deal the anxieties up for sure but she said you know. I just can't concentrate on the fact of possibly getting sick a can't become that person who's constantly constantly afraid. I'm not GonNa even think negative that I'm going to get as far as I can't let myself think that way I have to think Hopefully I'm GONNA do whatever it takes. I'm not talking about just for my life. I'm talking about the other lives as well. If you don't have health insurance or you know someone in this situation.

"Two were ardent trump supporters and the other two were Democrats and I was really struck by it. Because you know we talk so much about how divided this country is and somehow they're able to make it work and I would. Maybe there's a lesson in there for the rest of us think he's GonNa Save the world. The money's the family that's divided. The Dad took a transfer from one plant to another holly money. Says THEY WON'T BE SUPPORTING THE PRESIDENT? He is the president of the United States. So you can't you have to respect them that way but we are just. He could have done a lot more for the middle class rather than the upper class. He came here. Said don't sell your house. General Motors is going to be here. Maybe in cars and then a few months later it was closing. People are losing their jobs. Families had to move so any promises that he's made for our area. He did not keep last week they still had a decided which Democratic candidate they would vote for this Tuesday. I asked Erin whether any of this change in Lordstown feels like a good thing for their family. I mean there's some hope on the horizon potentially for the community and you know they're they're watching that but it doesn't really apply to them because there might be new jobs but Kevin Money you know he. He's looking toward retiring. Were with full benefits from GM. And there's only one way to retire with full benefits from GM and that's worth five more years at GM. So from their perspective is a little bit irrelevant. You know what's going on because their fate has already been determined. You know his job is gone and the only way he can continue to have. That job is to commute to Toledo. I missed my dad and most and most and I'm getting ready to go down for the night. All the fear unsoundness wash over me like a wave. I'll get think about is how US alone did in a different city alone. Thou- As to protect him and Mary here without him to protect us with all my Dulcie. My father everyday. If you'll see a piece of our lives of our piece of our lives are missing. Him knows when the peace will come back. Come back in place maybe. Gm will reopen with a new vehicle. Make maybe congressman. Tim Ryan will become president and get something back here for us. Many we will eventually have to move up. Some others to because of the stress of broken families need it to be avoided. There is no answer yet. All I can say the money families Sean. We live in hope that we all live at strong family. The economy changes. And we don't always talk about kind of how that trickles down and affects the kids. But you know. Here's this one family with this one story about you. Know how a decision made by a corporation based on business projections kind of trickles down and affects the way.
