A highlight from 1197. Elizabeth Warren Demands More Crypto Taxes Pro-CBDC Army vs Stablecoins
"So, Elizabeth Warren up to her antics again, this time using taxes, using CBDC, and many other tools to her disposal to try to take a position against crypto. We're going to be breaking down all of this for you guys today. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back into Tech Path. I want to get into the first story here. Democrat senators want Treasury, IRS, to pick up the pace on crypto tax rules. So a few things that I want to break down in this article so you kind of know who the players are. I'm going to zoom in on this one. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Robert Casey, and then Richard Blumenthal, all involved in this. The idea is pretty simple. Treasury and IRS have until the end of the year to finalize new rules to help close the estimated $50 billion crypto tax gap. Now, this is something we'll break down because this is not necessarily the real scenario. It's what they're proposing out there. The other thing they want to put in here is, without quick action, your agencies are at risk of failing to meet congressionally mandated deadlines and the implementation of the final rule. We urge that you act swiftly and implement strong crypto tax reporting rules for cryptocurrency brokers. All of this, which we'll get into, one of the things the industry has said has become very antsy waiting on guidance, particularly with regards to the IRS defines a broker. Industry observers have claimed that the broker definition is very broad. We all know that because it could include miners and also software developers. That's another problem that already exists in crypto of who is a broker. And then secondly, or additionally, what are we hoping for? An industry perspective that is updated with the 6045 regulation, which basically gives different qualifications based on type of activity. The other thing they break down is it'll hopefully make it clear that not everyone effectuating a transfer of a digital asset would be subjected to a broker reporting. So this gets into some of the details of when taxes do apply, and we'll show a little bit more about this. The letter, the senatorial letter, comes days after the IRS issued new guidance update in 6045 regarding crypto staking, which is the other part of this that's pretty big, in which the agency ruled that staking income, regardless of the gains are realized, will be taxed as income. So you have to think about that for a second. You're staking ETH, you get ETH in return. You haven't sold ETH, but you're taking that as an income. That is the argument I think that everybody, of course, is up in arms about. If a cash method taxpayer takes stakes cryptocurrency native to a proof of stake blockchain and receives additional units of cryptocurrency as rewards, which is what happens here when the validation occurs, the fair market value of the validation rewards received is included in the taxpayer's gross income. So if you are staking, that's a problem. The interesting thing is that you do not take tax gains if you're putting that in a money market and you're getting paid interest. That's not gains until you exit those kind of scenarios. So this is an interesting aspect of how the IRS and how Elizabeth Warren is really putting pressure on it. Another point I want to get to here. This was coming from the 2021 Infrastructure Investment Employment Act, which is where all this came from. But basically, it said if we do not act quickly, that is, if the Treasury and the IRS do not implement these new rules in a timely manner, we risk missing out on roughly $1 .5 billion in tax revenue for fiscal 2024. At this point, you should not give this chance to tax evaders, which is what they're calling crypto people. And I think this is something that people don't realize just how much taxes are being paid by people in crypto. In fact, countries with the most taxpayers currently in cryptocurrency, United States leading the way, number one, Japan, number two, Germany, United Kingdom, and Austria. So you can kind of see we're already handling this because crypto is like any other really asset out there if you think about it. If you take a gain, if you sell an asset and you take a gain, that's a capital gains tax. And it applies to capital gains rules. Those are the same kind of scenarios that play into it. What I don't necessarily think is going to be popular is for them to continue to reach in to these unrealized gains, like taking unrealized gains and taxing them in any other corporate infrastructure, just not necessarily the model in which this plays out. The other thing that income tax is payable on is you're getting paid in crypto. That's revenue. So you're paying tax on that. You get an airdrop. That's a new asset you've received. Getting taxes on that. Staking rewards. That's the other scenario that plays into this. DeFi interest. Mining rewards and then even referral bonuses. All of those are income taxable at this time. There was a couple of things here in a report from CoinLedger that I want to showcase. And this was really kind of going through the people in their survey of who understood when a taxable event occurs. So 65 % of investors correctly identified that selling cryptocurrency is a taxable event. Now you have to sell it for a profit, of course. If you sell it for a loss, that's not obviously a taxable event. But only 38 % of the investors correctly identified that a crypto -to -crypto trade is a taxable event. So this is still questioning and also it's still not completely clear so that the IRS, but also even your tax preparers understand really what's happening out there in the place. And I think, again, this all goes back down into regulation, which will flow into the tax code and many other aspects. This is kind of interesting right here. This was further from the CoinLedger report. 50 % of non -taxpayers don't report because they haven't made a profit currently in cryptocurrency. You have to remember the last two years, really since 2021, almost anybody in crypto, along with other assets out there, have been in the negative. Right now, haven't made a profit, so you're not going to be paying taxes on that. I didn't know I had to report. Some people said that. I don't understand how to report, 12%, and then I don't want to pay taxes, 7%. So that should have been larger. Government doesn't know about my cryptocurrency. Okay, those are the bad guys right there. So the likelihood is if you guys are watching our show and maybe you're brand new to crypto, it's treated like any other asset class. Doesn't have any really differentiation. It is money. If you're taking it as revenue, if you're taking it as income, if you're taking a sale and getting profit from it, you're going to be able to take taxes at that time. Those are taxable events. The other problem is that it's not like an investment if you do lose money where you get to use that as a tax loss. So that's another problem of how this could. Now you can do some tax loss harvesting, of course, obviously you should get with your own CPA to understand how that works. I want to go to a clip here because the clip will go into a little bit about where, and we're kind of transitioning out of taxes into CBDC, but where Warren stands on CBDCs. Let's know what she said. So that's not so hard on stablecoins. The harder one is what do you think Bitcoin is about? If you think it's about being able to transfer value without having to go through banks, and little side note, I think banks have done a really bad job of a lot of the things they're called on to do. Yeah, the biggest advocates of Bitcoin sound like you. Yeah. Meaning they want to break up these big banks have been terrible, right? That's exactly right. And they've cheated consumers and they've kept prices high and they're slow and they won't cash a check. Five to seven days to three to five days. There you go. And it was a huge victory. Huge victory, right? That they only held onto your money for five to seven days. So a lot that banks do wrong, if you think we could improve that in a digital world, the answer is sure you could. But in that case, let's do a central bank digital currency. Are you there? Oh, for a central bank digital currency? Yes. All right, so you can see she's very pro central bank digital currencies. If you look at Warren Davidson's tweet right here, in America, CBDC should be banned. This was one option, a jailable criminal offense declaration of war and implemented. Obviously that was his kind of poking fun at, but banned is the big one is that we shouldn't use it. This is a big scenario that plays out, has been playing out for quite some time on the CBDC front. So let's just understand that CBDCs, if we do get to that, and I think this is one of the reasons that obviously crypto in general has been more popular and started to become more popular around the world, especially in countries that already have problems with their fiat. And I think that is going to be an issue that will continue to face here in the U .S. of how that does play out on a digital currency. If you look at what's happening in China, obviously their social credit system is all tied to eventually to the money. So definitely a problem. Now the other things that play into this is that there could be some scenarios right now where Gensler is going to start trying to do some other things to try to deflect maybe a possible loss that could be coming at him. One of the things that's happening right now, this of course, hacks crypto founder used investor funds to buy almost four and a half million Black Diamonds. This is the SEC. So this again is nefarious actors like Richard Hart and others that have been in the crypto space. Listen, this is not the only place that has those kinds of actors out there, but this is a good example of just how the SEC is trying to go in and deflect a little bit. Here was one of the things they charged, SEC charges 18 Utah defendants with a $50 million crypto fraud scheme. So again, Gensler and the SEC are on the warpath right now. And I always wonder why, because these are small fraud. And I look at this, they're definitely not a Binance, they're not an FDX, and they're definitely not a Coinbase. So why are they going out after these very low hanging, I'm sure they should, but it's almost making mountains out of molehills in the kind of scenario that this is faced into right now. Are they maybe setting up for deflecting off of a potential big loss, such as possibly an approval through the House on these crypto bills? Just to give you an idea of just how close Gensler is to the regulatory and the political landscape, look at the timing here. January 12th, this was 2023, he sued Genesis. During that time, we had the House Financial Services Committee announcing their subcommittee on digital assets, so nice timing there. February 12th through the 14th, Wall Street comes in and says they've issued a Wells Notice for Paxos. At the same time, you had a committee hearing on crypto crash, why financial system safeguards are needed. Then you had this one, March 19th, he goes in and he publishes the op -ed in The Hill, and then you had the Senate Ag Committee saying we're going to do these crypto hearings. Then he does April 27th, and you can kind of see it just all ties in to activity that's happening in the political forefront. He is coming in, or the SEC coming in, and timing is everything. So the reality is that all of this is going to play into the hands, I think, of the industry and also to the lawmakers understanding what the SEC's overreach has been. So it's going to be one that will probably play out in a very short period of time. I want to go to this next clip of Ron Hammond from Blockchain Association. Listen in. At least in the market structure bill, which again, got more votes than the stablecoin bill from Democrats, which blew everyone's mind in D .C. No one expected that to have ever happened. We were expecting like four or five. We had six Democrats join. Stablecoins were expecting 12 or so Democrats to join. We only got five. All right. So simply kind of taking a little bit of a victory lap of what has happened here recently on the House floor in terms of the committees and getting ready to send both of these bills to the House for a potential vote. This will happen in September. Let's take a listen to this next clip on Hammond on Gensler. And I think the market structure vote in particular just shows how much he's lost his own party in terms of buying the narrative that, A, the status quo is fine, B, there's no need for legislation, and three, he's doing a good job on the enforcement end. And we saw that on all three arguments from different Democrats fail each time. And I think the fact that there's six Democrats who bucked their own party, who bucked the SEC and said, yeah, we're going to advance the market structure bill forward. Even the House Act Committee said, yeah, we're going to advance this bill forward, too, without any opposition recorded. That's huge. All right. So I think the play out on this, you know, when you look at the current landscape right now of what Warren's attack is, the crypto army, you look at the positioning that really D .C. is doing currently, and now could this play into the political landscape for 2024? Yes, it could. But the bigger play here, I think, is still the regulatory front. And that means that either the SEC is going to lose some of its power and the CFTC is going to come in and start to have a little bit more divvy up of what digital assets and how they're controlled through these government agencies. But really, how does this play out maybe into the future? This note right here from the block, they were talking about the commission being the SEC has so far received 52 letters about these proposed funds. This is in reference to ETFs, with most of them expressing support. So it's very possible that we could see an ETF actually get passed here. And you've seen some of the things we've talked about here on the channel before in the last couple of weeks, you know, everything from the Bloomberg team and so on around the potential of the ETF getting passed, the Bitcoin ETF. If that does get passed, that would be huge for the market, would absolutely legitimize what's happening in this space. And I think it would probably, in most cases, put so much pressure on D .C. that they have to move to going in and actually getting some landscape in play. Most of the comments against the approval appeared in multiple letters from a business consultant calling themselves the due diligence. I think basically this is a bunch of banks tied in behind this and this was the counter argument to what an ETF should be. So there is full political folly in play here and it is happening at, I think, light speed right now, much faster than what I anticipated even. One of the last things here is the comment period wraps up next week. So the SEC accepting letters for the final funds around August 11. So meaning that Gensler is getting ready to have to actually make some decision either for or against or a delay, which is probably what most likely will happen. But the good thing is that, like I said, there's going to be a potential right now which keeps increasing of a potential approval coming from some of the best ETF experts in the world that are analyzing where the situation is and kind of how it's going forward. Additionally, you've got anti -crypto movement now escalating Congress's assault on privacy. This is where a lot of people are starting to look at the idea of cash and just personal privacy, which is one of the biggest issues really around the world. And if you think about just how important that is, this would give you an example, cash matters, free citizens entitled to privacy and the protection of their data. In the UK, 74 % of people say cashless society would take away the people's right to choose. In the U .S., it's 73%. When it comes to purchases, personal preferences should remain exactly that, simply meaning that with a CBDC, we all know what that means, the control of the cash, control of what you spend on, then it gets into the control of what you spend on based on your political viewpoints or other aspects of your life that all start to play it. So cash does pretty much empower citizens to become capable of kind of voting with their wallets. And I think this is a very critical scenario that's playing out right now. CBDCs will be a big part of this. So you've got CBDCs happening, you've got what we're going to be dealing with on a taxable side and then the legislative. So all of this happening right now, literally in 2023, and it seems to be coming to a head very quickly. I think as we move forward, there's going to be two things that come out of this, and that is how these bills start to move their way through Congress and eventually, if we do get approvals, to the president's desk. Here's of course, the Senator Lummis and Gillibrand bill. Just another piece of legislation that is making its way through. Most likely, this is one that will not happen, mainly because of the association and the collaboration, I think, with the ICC. The bill involves a broader swath of agencies, so this is kind of interesting because it gets into the Office for Foreign Asset Control, the FTC, OFAC, FinCEN, et cetera. The SEC is provided also with something that a section -by -section overview claims resolves a long -standing issue with the SEC custody requirements. Probably the bill that will not make its way through, which gives us back to the scenario of the two bills that are currently on the floor that most likely will make it. So good news, I think, in general, bad news for the crypto army and CBDC is still coming to a head, but I think the good thing here is that, in many cases, it's like bad PR is even good PR, but the point is that the industry, lawmakers, finance community, they're all talking about crypto, and in the end, that is good for the asset class. One other thing that did happen, which is kind of interesting, this was a letter to Tim Cook, and we did a full video on this, so I won't go into the detail of this, but mainly it was trying to get Apple to get less and less constrictive on asset classes that are making their way through apps or innovation that are involved with blockchain. One of the things that they got into was purposely limiting choice and stifling innovation at the expense of user experience. This is a problem that Apple kind of faces for quite some time. And we broke down a lot of this, but the big deal is this right here, responding to the following questions no later than 5 p .m. on August 14th. So this is another issue that is coming to a head here in August of Apple having to actually address what's happening in Capitol Hill around the blockchain and the crypto industry as a whole. So again, just another big benefit, I think, for where this market is going. I want to go to this next clip here, and this is again Ron Hammond, on where he thinks Apple's position is. Listen in. But this is a bipartisan letter from the leaders of the subcommittee on innovation. That sends a message that says, look, I mean, Apple's getting hit on a number of fronts, but this definitely sends a message saying, you know, hey, look, you're on the clock right now. We're looking at you. So that committee is going to be taking more of a role over time because we've seen this talk and this narrative of crypto really shift more and more in D .C., at least, talking about the tech itself, which is perfect, is exactly what I want to talk about, the innovation and the technology itself. And that's the Energy and Commerce Committee. That's a bipartisan letter that sends a pretty good warning shot to others in the industry saying, look, you know, crypto is here to stay. We have concerns that the U .S. are probably blocking them out. And that's not good on our watch. All right. So I think this is one of those things, again, that the thwarting of innovation is a concern here in the United States because it's one of the things that pretty much pushed the U .S. ahead of the entire planet when it comes to really capital growth, entrepreneurship, how we grow our own economies, but more importantly, our position in the hierarchy of the global structure in terms of just being the global power. And I think if you consider that, you have to look at what's happening in Europe. And with the EU, markets and crypto assets regulation, this is MICA, this is a regulation that's pretty much been in place, and it's now starting to take form. And one of the things that you have to kind of look at here is their consultation package three. These are all actually happening now. Qualification of crypto assets and financial instruments, monitoring detection, notification of market abuse, investor protection is happening, you can kind of see the things there on reverse solicitation, policies, procedures, all that. System resilience and security access, all that is building. Mainly what is going on right now in MICA is they're prepping to get all of this regulation in place so that they can roll out this program. And when they do, it is going to put the EU at the front and center of one of the biggest asset classes that has ever been created. This is the power of what crypto and blockchain is bringing to the planet. And that's why I think we are seeing all of this scrambling going on here in 2023 in the U .S. Look at the timeline here of MICA. June hits, publication goes out. July, the consultation package one already rolls out. October of this year, we're going to see package two. And then by Q1, that's when that consultation package three goes into play. And then we have early entry into the application and then the rollout by end of next year. So this is pretty significant. Further into their rollout, this kind of, let me kind of zoom out on this a little bit. This shows more background on all the transitional measurements that are going to take place. And this looks complicated, but really what it simply means is these are the deadlines that they're trying to meet to get all of the organizations that are applying for regulatory position in the EU into play so that they can go into the markets with all of these things in a legal way. And I think that is what is interesting. I think they're going to stay very sharp on these timelines because they don't want to look stupid. And right now, the world is watching. Everybody's looking at this. Asia's watching this now. The U .S. is pretty much on a big race with it. I want to go to a next clip here. And this next clip is a little bit more about the BRICs, now why the BRICs matter. And listen to this one. This is an important one. Yeah. So BRICs is a collection of countries that are trying to find an alternative to what they see as the hegemonic dollar based U .S. run global economy. So BRIC stands for Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa. But what happened in the wake of the Ukraine invasion is that the U .S. seized Russia's presumably to try to set off a banking crisis. Now, ironically enough, for separate reasons, our banks crashed. But anyway, that didn't work. But the problem, yeah, the problem is that every country on earth saw that happen. All right. And you've got now all these countries that they were never really hostile to the U .S., but they're starting to wonder now, could they come after me? Could they try to crash my banks? But at this point now it's accelerating. And so they've got a meeting coming up in August. And one of the items that may or may not be on the agenda is the prospect of a gold backed BRICs currency. What I think is interesting is that if any country did gold back a widely used currency, that would I mean, it would be catastrophic for the U .S. dollar. Right. That would give the world an alternative sort of payment rail that is even stronger than the dollar is today. All right. So hopefully you guys are seeing how all of this is connected. You go from everything that Elizabeth Warren is doing on the legislative front to basically tax Americans, kind of setting up the scale of what and how this asset class is going to be dealt with, to how we're going to control the digital dollar, which is the CBDC, and whether or not FedNow will play into that in the future. Then you tie into all this regulatory framework. And then lastly, but not least, is BRICs and their importance on the global front. If you look at this tweet right here on World Statistics, GDP at purchasing power parity of the world. Here's the G7. You can kind of see U .S., Japan, et cetera, all the way in there, 45 percent 1993, all the way down to 2028, around 27 percent. The BRICS nations, all the way down to 2028, they will actually accelerate over the GDP of the G7. This is pretty significant because all this was, again, projected by the IMF, the International Monetary Fund. One of the things around this is whether or not, and St. Auge talked about that, Peter, the guy that we just did a clip on, he talked about the importance of this gold -backed dollar or BRICS currency. If that were to occur, that would be, as he said, catastrophic for not only the U .S. dollar, but I think catastrophic for the globe because we would see a shift in power pretty quickly. So here's the alliance right here. This is a scary picture. BRICS alliance will discuss the usage of local currencies for cross -border transactions in the upcoming summit in August. Now, the good thing, the good news, if there is some, is they're talking about using local currency as opposed to gold. Had they used gold, that would have been a huge blow into, really, the future of the U .S. dollar, and they still may go that direction, so you have to be considering that. Again, why is it important to be investing in cryptocurrencies or digital assets? We've just painted out a picture for you and the reasons why all of this flows up in a very interesting domino effect toward how just monetary systems are going to be run in the next 100 years. Stablecoins' potential counter to de -dollarization, that's a big part of this. So in this particular scenario of this article, people familiar with the talk said that the last moment the White House National Economic Council, this was Lael Brainard, dumped cold water on this stablecoin bill saying it didn't put federal regulators in a strong enough role. And remember, if you'll recall, we did a video on this where, of course, Patrick McHenry and Maxine Waters were negotiating that. And there seemed to be an agreement prior to going to the vote. And then at the last minute, Maxine Waters pretty much got the phone call from the red phone and that was dislodged. And then, of course, McHenry went to the floor with what was the old bill that did not have all the changes in it. So again, a lot of politics being played out right here in D .C. And again, this is very important because of the global position and what we are trying to do to essentially compete at a very high level. I want to close this out quickly with our last clip here. This is just the stablecoin timeline from the Blockchain Association listening. It does, unfortunately, hinder it a little bit, but I've had conversations with staff and members of Congress after the fact, and they seem very gung ho in trying to resolve this issue before the whole entire House votes on that bill. But likely what's going to happen is that in the fall, there's going to be a general House floor vote. Every member of the House gets a vote on this, which, again, it's a lot of education. So I've already had some Republicans reach out to me for more the right wing of the caucus saying the stablecoin bill is just a CBDC bill. And it's like, no, it's not. It's nothing related to that. On the left, we're seeing a little more consumer protection concerns and also just the general crypto skeptic concern as well. So August, we're going to have a break and in the fall, you're going to have a vote, right? Exactly. But I think for sure in twenty twenty three, we'll have a general vote on the House floor. And then you can see for yourself what your members of Congress are supporting crypto or guardrails for crypto and which ones say, you know, nah, you know, I don't I think the status quo is fine. All right, so big actions happening this fall and part of this will, of course, will be the stablecoin bill, but also crypto and digital assets in general hitting the House floor. This and as Hammond said, this will be a critical time because the scenario that plays into this right now is it's going to showcase into a lot of what we'll see in the political runs and the campaigns that are being run next year in twenty twenty four. So this could become a little bit more of a voting scenario. So hopefully this has given you guys a rundown. I know it's it's it is a lot here to to kind of digest. If you're new to our channel, we try to break these down. And I promise we're going to try to get these in a little bit, maybe smaller bite sizes. But you can see the breadth of what's happening globally, especially here in the United States right now, because this is a fight for your wallet. And that's why it's so important and that's why we're seeing so much activity happen. You guys are part of the Diamond Circle. Great. Glad to have you in. But if you're not, make sure and join.

"App. DQ. Happy tastes good. This is a wcp T a 20 heartland signal news minute. In an April 27th speech to the brookings institution, national security adviser Jake Sullivan detailed why decades of tax cutting deregulation and privatization of public action had conspired to hollow out America's industrial base, deepen economic inequality, undermine national security and democracy, emboldened China and hobble efforts to meaningfully address the climate crisis. So when President Biden came to office, he knew the solution to each of these challenges was to restore an economic mentality, the champions building.

US revises down last quarter's economic growth to 2.6% rate
"In good news bad news, the U.S. economy is growing, but slightly slower than the government's previous estimate. The commerce department finds the U.S. economy grew at a rate of 2.6% in the final estimate for the fourth quarter of last year. That's a slight downgrade from previously because of revisions with weakening consumer spending and exports. That puts 2020 twos annual GDP at 2.1% down from the 5.9% the U.S. enjoyed in 2021 during the pandemic recovery boom, despite a robust jobs market, most economists say growth is slowing as rising interest rates makes borrowing more expensive and consumers reduce spending on categories that were popular during the lockdowns like appliances and furniture. Forecasters expect to see even more deceleration when the January through March report is issued on April 27th. Jennifer King, Washington

Reed And a big summer of unreciprocated. A lot of protest a lot of picketing. A special prosecutor was appointed to that case and ultimately cleared the eye MPD of any wrongdoing.

"I hope this just leads to good conversation. Yeah there are a lot different conversations here. Another one that i think is worth having. Is you know one. And two eight specifically those were designed for these rural schools. But now you look at one. Am to eight titles and most sports and who's winning them. It's usually small private schools in in big cities you know You know a denver private school. That has seventy kids but a ton of money win the title. Well that's not what design for so. I think that's another conversation that should happen. I think that's probably part of the frustrations know these again. These small towns kind of keep being marginalized because of impacts from you know the the metro areas. Yeah that's that's actually really good point kevin. I hadn't thought about that because you know you. You do see somebody Show up every once in a while you'll find a great team that will just go on a run that's consistently good at specific sport but then it is the same ones those same private schools that you're seeing start to take that next step and it's fascinating to me because you think private school time do you don't necessarily think Sports i think academics but that athletic side of it i think schools are realizing that there's a money generating possibility from it as well. So you're seeing. Even those small private schools started diving. Yeah and again. There's there's nothing wrong with these schools having good athletics at all But if you go like state track for instance you're one eight hundred three eight titles a lot of times are you know. Small private schools And again those were designed originally for small towns. Not the small towns. Don't win obviously they do. We have with every year. We have tons of awesome stories about that. it's just it's it's complicated man. I mean every state wrestles with some sort of these issues By this is you know. All these conversations merged together. You know there's been talk about. How do you change the classification system. Because i for a long time. I've been against Enrollment being how you decide class because you have you know. Obviously a cherry creek is huge and has money.

Talking about the good The denver nuggets last night against a team of memphis team. That is feisty. We'll say they are. They are feisty. They didn't stay a chance. You know remember going back a couple About a week ago the memphis grizzlies took the denver nuggets to double overtime. They didn't say chance. Michael porter jr. goes for thirty one points and the denver nuggets win one. Twenty two ninety six over the memphis. Grizzlies again. Pj has just been going off and just quietly easily steady as he goes nicole. Yokich twenty four points fifteen rebounds. This team is this seems still stupid. Good you know. I was so worried about them early. On things were flowing. Then they move go. Aaron gorden is aaron gordon. Going to be like the most overlooked most valuable player on a team especially if they can go win. Fifteen points five boards to assist not a whole lot going on there. I think that's not that big of a deal. He's just solid across. The board was only twenty. Two minutes to michael porter. Jr. thirty one point seven boards nicola yokich twenty four points fifteen boards five assists faku pazuto seven point seven assists. Pj dosier nine points. Three rebounds three assists. I mean you get the point here. You get the point. This team is still deep enough to win. A lot of games austin rivers. Look i look at a lot of the plus minuses. He's plus fifteen as in their six points three assists one board steal a block. That's pretty good. This team still has what it takes. They moved to forty and twenty one on the year with that. Blowout win over the memphis grizzlies. Now there's still a lot of things that have to shake out here. There's still a lot that has to get done. But the nuggets have a slim chance to not have to face. The los angeles lakers in the first round of the playoffs. Now it seemingly a very very slim. Chance at least in my estimation but they've got there's a lot of matchup still out there. Utah loses last night. They've lost two in a row. The nuggets are now two games back of the clippers. They've gotta just keep pace here. So the suns are there are three games back in the four games back of utah. I think if anyone is a story and this is. I noticed kind of crazy to say but i think what is in store for a deep drop off. I see utah jazz. Jazz are not quite ready for that step. And i've been amazed that they've been able to hold onto that number one seat for as long as they have. I liked the clippers. I like the sun. I think the nuggets can do it. I think it's a very chance. I'm not upset with it either. Way if they if they take on the lakers in the first round i think. That's more on the lakers lakers are going to have more put on them. They're the defending champs. They've got lebron james. Got anthony davis. The nuggets are without jamal. Murray they've been beat up. So i think the pressures on the lakers. If that matchup does happen Let's talk about the colorado rockies. Just completely caught everybody off guard yesterday. Jeff -british steps down as rockies general manager. It's so weird. This is so weird so brian. Which trades nolan aaron auto since fifty million dollars with them to saint louis twenty one games twenty one games into the next season he steps down. Now i'll tell you a little bit of something there. So he steps down There's the rockies now in search of new general manager the other big thing that they did and i think this is very smart for dick while advert very smart. Greg feazel who on monday was appointed team president. In addition to his role in charge of the club's business operations will oversee baseball operation. Now i know dick bound for still going to have a say whatever he wants. He's the owner but the fact he's hiring a present the handle. The baseball operations is a good sign. Dick mom for needs to be as far away from baseball operations as possible. So who's next. The one thing that i was a little surprised by from around the league it it seems like this is a really appealing job for some creative mind. He oh espn plus bill. Build a winner build a winner coors field. Here's how the rockies next gm can do it if the owner lets them. That's going to be the big thing still. You can find innovative guy. You can find a guy that is creative to do things differently. Here's how you can use coors field to your advantage. There's so many analytics in this game. Now that can do but the big if is always going to be gifting for them. So after the news of jeff at stepping down iraqis had a game to handle they took on the san francisco. Giants have been sneaky. Good this year. Fifteen and eight so far but they just absolutely stopped the colorado rockies last night twelve zero buster posey go hits two home runs. Its two run homer.

Van rie director of reporting for nine news. Joining me up on highland chris. How are you my friend. I'm good i out of curiosity though i look this morning. 'cause it didn't i'm not paying that much attention to baseball for obvious reasons but i looked this morning in st louis cardinals. Are i believe eleven. Eleven and nolan. Aaron nado is hitting below two fifty right now that i don't take joy in either one. I just wanted point that you're you're such a liar if you if you don't take joy in that because it always helps when me see you dumped for somebody else and then they're like they're not there. They're not happy still. It's early in the season. We're only six and a half games out of first place. There's plenty of plenty of baseball. I like the like the optimistic. Approach there chris. Beta redirect reporting for nine news so chris You last time we talked. You were lying to get your second dose of the covid nineteen vaccine. How did that go. It was interesting. I i you know. Obviously i'm i'm an advocate for the vaccine and most an advocate for just being truthful. I had a rough day on wednesday. Nothing catastrophically bad but i definitely had a temperature Woke up with Hold on. I hold on sorry parked in the wrong spot. I woke up with a slight temperature And i woke up with lots of chills and didn't feel good for about a day and the next day totally find and That's that's my body doing what it's supposed to do. Yeah that's that's seems to be. The constant constant theme is that there's gonna be one day after that second does that really Really hits you hard. Chris what i appreciate about you from the beginning. Why i wanted to get you on for weekly on. This program is your Your transparency and truth telling among all of these things but also your ability to say. Here's the facts As as presented and then not push people in any way shape or form yes. You're an advocate for the vaccine But this this Rhetoric is starting to really ramp up talking about people who don't want the vaccine and and who will not be getting it your thoughts on how this is going to transpire. We talked a little bit about it last time. But your thoughts on how this is going to go down. i think it's gonna get a little ugly And and like. I said i don't believe in this idea nor do i believe that. A journalist job is to sort of advocate for sort of forcing people to get the vaccine. I'm in line of. Here's the facts. i believe. The facts are pretty clear. There's been a lot of testing vaccine. I believe they're safe. I would give it to my own child That's everything that lots and lots of doctors about the vaccine. Here's the problem is that we're now reaching sort of the the point in time where anybody who wanted to get a vaccine wants to get the vaccine. The availability is there in about a week or two You're going to really start to run out of people that are in that area. That really want to get the vaccine. So then you're going to start to rely on the people that are on the fence. There's gonna be fewer of those and then you're gonna have the holdouts. It's simply aren't going to get vaccinated under any circumstance. The question is how close did we get to seventy. We're not anywhere near right now in terms of full immunity and so the question is what happens if we don't get to seventy percent. I think that's going to be very realistic question. Not just for colorado but around the country. Because we're going to get close but potentially not close enough. And i think that means we're just gonna have these little waves that come up every few months whether they're seasonal or not and just they'll come up and they will be a problem not massive disruption problem. But think about it this way. What's the one group of people right now who cannot get vaccinated in large numbers. It's kids it's school age kids and this will be a problem in schools when you have these ways. It's going to be difficult for schools to sort of because it's going to be like a flu season year round where you're going to have these waves and the only way to get rid of these ways to bring a diet down to get to that seventy to eighty percent range and if we're not there yet i think we're going to have those ways particularly be a problem in school age kids well and that's an interesting. I mean it's interesting to look at the. What ifs of this in where it goes from here my question though You take a state like texas. Who was kind of leading the way in. Getting rid of the mask mandate and of opening things backup. We haven't seen the increase in texas that we thought meanwhile here in colorado were training backup. We talked to over six hundred hospitalizations for the first time in a couple of months yesterday how i mean what's the rhyme or reason for that. Chris i here's here's what i think and and and you know i ain't no scientists so take it for what it's worth but i've been looking into this for a long long time. I think that this over reliance on this idea that social distancing and masks or a cure all to sort of i always bring the virus activity down is overrated and saying. This is a mass. Don't work absolutely not but this idea that they're a panacea. The only reason why cases go up and down. I think it's too much. And you're seeing what people call seasonality in various places where sometimes the virus will take over in and actually gain a foothold in the community and keep going because of the sometimes of circumstances that are beyond human control. And i think that's what's taking place in texas. I think that's what type thing place in florida. You're seeing uptick in colorado. And i keep waiting. I mean eventually this is gonna go down but it hasn't happened yet. And i'd like to see it happen sooner rather than later but that to me suggests i mean look if there's no mask mandate in texas and there is still well a pseudo mask mandate here in colorado You have to start to wonder. Is it beyond a mask. Mandate and i think the answer is yes talking with kris van debris and director of reporting four nine news. You know we we heard Governor police come out about a month ago now and say that by by july when the the mlb all star games. Here we're not gonna have to worry about covid win. Does he get a little nervous about that. As.

Krista Drobac Discusses Sweeping Changes in Federal Telehealth Policy In Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
"Let me just for background asked why had the Congress or what's your understanding of why the congressman CMS head up into recent strictly limited Medicare telehealth. And I'll throw in of course we'll get to more patient monitoring or these benefits. The long term challenge has always been the congressional budget. Office really does not look favorably on telemedicine. They believed that. It increases costs overall rather than replacing in person visit their underlying. Thinking is that people use telemedicine and then also on top of that also go in person so Our challenge up until now has always been The cost and the perceived worries about fraud. The we find it very interesting that people at the Office of Inspector General or CMS Program Integrity Office. Think that it easier to commit fraud by telemedicine because really the fraud that takes place in Medicare's often making up fake patients and it's a lot harder to track that down than it is in telemedicine to see a trend quickly And also you have an actual. It addressed the IP address. And tell them so. It seems to us that. Be Easier to detect and root out fraud in the online environment than it would be in the In the in person environment. So we think we've got Good arguments on the fraud piece. And we're collecting data now on the Kospi's okay. The I heard it explained in part by the view. It's duplicative and not substitutive. That's one variation of ood acclimation. Yes thank you. So let's go to Let's go to were at so obviously The Congress house past four so called Kobe. Nineteen related Bills or sometimes referred to as supplemental bills The first The first supplemental and of course the third the Care Act had telehealth provisions in them and then of course in late March early April. Cms published in interim final rule and Proxima. I forty pages of that discussed Regulatory Waivers SMS would grant In relation to their health policy. Can you provide some more top of line? Where the Moore's substantive congressional legislative and regulatory changes to the policy yes. Congress started with authority in the first couple mental hugh allow for the waiver of the originating site in rural restrictions in Medicare and to see us followed through with that and lifted those restrictions The subsequent bills actually gave the authority to cms to lift the entirety of eighteen. Thirty four in any part of eighteen. Thirty four M so that they went ahead and also lifted the restrictions on Speech therapists physical therapists occupational therapists. So now pretty much All of the Practitioners who bill Medicare can practice telemedicine and the patient can be anywhere and the provider can be anywhere they clarified the use of technology. So you can use a art hall And when advocates asked for audio only cms did add some em codes. That are audio. Only there are some codes that you can use for Phone only telemedicine they also Added a a lot of new codes so Most of the primary care codes are now cover. Behavioral Health is covered They sort of assessed what you might need to do. During a a cove emergency and added those codes. So there's a lot more that he'd be reimbursed The Office of Civil Rights at HHS way the Hesse requirements in terms of what kind of platform? You can use the. You don't have to have a hippo compliant platform you can use facetime or skype The waved the Co pays on Telemedicine So that You know for both remote monitoring and telehealth which is really advantageous especially for by train because remote Copays has been a barrier or remote monitoring up They actually most Medicare advantage. Plans have now waved. The Co pays for both tele-medicine and remote monitoring On the state side there have been significant. Changes about forty nine states have weighed some part of their state. Licensure rules Medicaid has started covering things that weren't covered previously State medical boards have allowed for the waiver of existing relationship. Requirements face requirements There's been some scope of practice changes so that For example supervision of nurses can be done virtually Some some states that didn't specifically allow nurses and physical therapists and physicians assistant to practice telemedicine. are now allowing it so there have been changes at both the federal and the state level so quite a lot To say the Least Napoli let me ask as as follow up. There has been some Sweetie question realized relative to tell health as relates to a stark or Physician self referral a law What's what's the intersection there. You know the kinds that hit it has come up. The stark laws from me has been between the vendor and the providers so we weighed the telemedicine restrictions and medicare but most of the capacity in the marketplace telemedicine is through vendors because in the past medical offices haven't been reimbursed for them so they didn't invest in televised. So when you want it to go and get a visit visit your employer or insurer had generally Then did that out in order to make that happen. So you've got a lot of doctors in their homes Doing telemedicine visits all day long. But they're the they're the employee of an American well or an empty live. There are not a physician office. Therefore they're not an enrolled in Medicare so that means that those vendors can't actually provide telemedicine services directly to patient. 'cause they're not medicare enrolled providers so the way that it's happening in the marketplace. Now is that a lot of telemedicine. It'd being done through. Hospitals and other Medicare enrolled providers but they have vendors helping them under a white label. So one of the questions that we've had about dark kickback. Is Can a vendor Provide a referral to a hospital. So that if they get a patient that set you know obviously needs being. Can they refer that patient to the hospital? Who is there a quiet and right and the answer? Yes they can because it's not a self referral Those are the types of scenarios where this is coming up Just because of the strange way That telemedicine his grown up over time and mainly as a response to the regulatory challenges Medicare so in some sense to follow up. It's it it. Turns out to be convenient. That the vendor is not under the Medicare program thereby being able and that's an accident history. Meaning the Medicare provider wasn't doing the service themselves they farmed it out and as a result of that. This referral is now allowed. Is that correct correct? Okay sort of accident of history. I
