Amid surge in cases, Arizona readies new push to slow COVID-19 spread
"Nearly ninety percent of Arizona's I see beds are full Republican Governor Doug Ducey. ducey faces widespread outrage for downplaying the virus, and even obstructing local officials from acquiring masks in June as case numbers began to explode. Do see reverse course and allowed mayors to issue their own virus guidelines under growing pressure, but he resisted calls to pass a statewide mask mandate or reimposes stay at home order, which expired in May with little restriction on the state's reopening. Facing rising numbers June do see ordered bars and gyms to close again, but Arizona residents say the actions are too little too late. The family of a sixty five year old Mexican. American man who died of Covid, nineteen in Phoenix, is accusing Arizona. State officials of being directly responsible for his death in a scathing obituary in the Arizona Republic, the family of Of Mark, Anthony or Keesa wrote quote. His death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to jeopardize the health of Brown bodies through a clear lack of leadership refusal to acknowledge the severity of the crisis and inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize risk. This is or Qisas daughter Kristin an interview with A. Republican. Governor DC's got blood on a fan. He was late to close down the state. He was early to open X and. The manner in which he opened allowing things to go back as normal is, in my opinion, the reason why my dad is being buried today. We'll for more. We're going to Tucson to speak with a local leader. WHO's been standing up to Governor Doug Ducey. That's Mayor Ricky Romero. She is the first Latina and the first woman to be elected mayor of Tucson. She was previously. Tucson city council member for over a decade, the daughter of migrant workers we welcome you to democracy now Mayor Ramiro. Your thoughts on governor Ducey's responsibility. What do you want to see the state? OF ARIZONA DO? And what are you doing in Tucson? Good Morning Amy. Thank you so much for having me this morning. We have been in a state of crisis. Since governor ducey decided to hastily reopen the state. We were in a very good place. Coming to a plateau here in the city of Tucson relocated in Pima County in pima. Cownie, we were seeing twenty twenty four cases a day. It was a plateau now. We are seeing almost three hundred cases a day in Pima County. In a county of million people we. We are we see anywhere from five to twenty ICU beds, which is very very concerning in straining our doctors and nurses at our hospitals. We jumped up in front of Governor Ducey, a few mayors Mayor Gayle from Phoenix. Mayor Evans from flagstaff in myself Joe jumped ahead of the governor to call the stay at home. orders in to close down bars back in March He took our cue few days later, and with his executive order he tied the hands of mayors in cities and towns and county and county health departments throughout the state by preempting us from from doing anything that he wouldn't do. Most recently, he untied the hands of mayors. In counties throughout the state to do mandatory mask ordinances. Throughout the state, but what we have been seeing with Governor Ducey is a microcosm of what has been happening with trump in his federal response to this pandemic, which is tepid, a tepid response a pushback on science and what public health officials recommend that we do. Every day that governor Ducey Wade's. We see three thousand cases in Arizona and. And the crisis continues more lives lost, and so what we have been done doing here in Tucson is basically pushing the governor to do the right thing because it's a very real threat. If we do move ahead in front of him. The state legislature, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a bill about three years ago fourteen eighty seven that if any city does anything, any law that preempts the state that are stayed shared revenue could be pulled from us, and those are millions and millions of dollars. That, we could potentially lose and so in this crisis we see ourselves as mayors. In fear in fear for the lives of our communities in fear of for the inability for us to be able to do anything so, what mayors across Arizona and I have been doing his publicly pressuring the governor to the right thing. The one thing that he could do that could help is do. Is Institute a mandatory mask? Executive Order Statewide and he refuses to even do that.

"More from Russ wiles personal finance writer at the Arizona Republic Russ set this up. First of all, Republicans and Democrats seem to be agreeing on anything these days, but there was a piece of legislation which passed the house may twenty third with strong by partisan support. You know, it passed by about four hundred seventeen to three vote, which is overwhelming to have good, good, traction, good legs in the Senate to will see. But this is secure what they call the secure ACA. It's an acronym and basically would expand an just a bit. Is that it would expand workplace retirement savings programs? You know, mainly for one K plans to a lot more people who don't have them currently. So this would mean what perhaps for a start with employees. And then businesses also. I think the, the upshot here is that, as you know, about half half the population half the working population doesn't have a 4._0._1._K or similar workplace retirement access. And this would expand the numbers, primarily by allowing small businesses to band together, regardless of industry to create collective fallen K plans thereby benefit from economies of scale, and reduced administrative hassles. I don't know all the details, but there have. Stand banding together has been allowed for certain businesses in certain very close. Knit industry groups. It hasn't been allowed previously, I don't remember why for, you know, companies that are, you know, in very disparate, you know by their nature. But anyway, that's the idea here. And as you know, small businesses employ a lot of people in this country, and they are less likely for cost of administrative recordkeeping reasons to be allowing these sort of plant. So that's, that's the gist of it. So. Reasons to oppose this would be what all, I mean, there would be an I don't know what the fiscal impact is probably would be a modest fiscal impact for the federal government, for example, to incur some small employers to offer these plans, and some of these players could receive five hundred dollar annual tax credit up to three years.

"The Arizona Republic and the center for public integrity reveals for the first time the extent to which special interests have infiltrated state legislatures using model legislation in all USA today. Investigations editor Chris Davis says these copycat bills amount to the nation's largest on reported special interest campaign driving agendas in every state house and touching nearly every area of public policy. Chris explain. So what happens is corporations special interest groups industry groups the right from scratch their own laws bills, and they go to lawmakers in state houses, and they? And have introduced them. And these things spread from one state house to the next ultimately can change policy across the country. Boy, ten thousand bills almost entirely copied from model legislation were introduced nationwide. It was a shocking number two us. It's also important to keep in mind. It's a bare minimum number because the matching that we did relied on bills compared to bottle bills that were nearly exact so these don't even count sort of smaller strings of text that might get a corporation what it wants. But just just takes a couple of sentences to describe is probably far more than we even though further certain lobby groups that seem to be for lack of a better term better at this than others. The big player is Alec which is a conservative group that's gotten some press over the years, and the continue to be the the group that has the most success they've really refined mechanism to to get these bills introduced in past and it relies on these conferences if they have that bring together wealthy interests corporations, and and otherwise to meet with lawmakers, and these guys sit down and committees and hash out laws together, and then take them back to their home states and introduce them or put them in the hands of lobbyists around the country. So they can be introduced in other states speaking with Chris Davis executive editor for investigations at USA today. They've put together a piece entitled elected them to write laws.

"The Arizona Republic reported hacienda. Health care facing 2016 criminal investigation for allegedly billing the state more than four million for bogus twenty fourteen charges for wages, transportation, housekeeping, maintenance, and supplies. The criminal case was dropped in two thousand seventeen and no charges were filed the Republic said, but the court battle is continuing an effort to force hacienda to turn over financial records that was the New York Times, and they credited the Arizona Republic on the hacienda healthcare story. But the earlier in the show, I pointed out the fact that back in twenty seventeen there's this headline do see shuts down testimony by Jeffries aloft is on D E, S debacle. And that was reported by the era Zona daily independent and in this article and actually the Arizona daily independent. Also did a report on a hacienda healthcare. The Arizona Republic may be the biggest newspaper in the state, but they're late to the party the smallest newspaper in the state. The air is on the daily independent was on this end that 2017 article is transcribed the conversation. That I had with with a Tim Jeffries on my radio show back then. That climate this whole thing at the end of the day. There is going to be held to pay for this. Here is somebody has somebody has to answer some questions. Here is a snippet exit. Whole interview is already up on the podcast. This is Dr Charles Loftus, my conversation with when I asked him a pertinent question to get down to the bottom of this. We have Dr Charlie Loftus innocent the ring of the conservative circus. He's been an Arizona law enforcement officer for over thirty years right now, he's at the Arizona State University. Dr Loftus, given your background on this case. A you at all surprised by what you're hearing about what's happening with hacienda. No, not at all. A matter of fact, though, within a few days of of my termination, the next working day. I was sending emails to the individuals taking over my position and the position above me. 'cause that position above me was also terminated saying here is a an Email on cases that are underway. Here's some cases that are on the preview. Here's some cases involving counterterrorism. Here are some cases of this. And that and here is. In the case. And in that Email, I say, I was very careful with it. Because of the friend is owner the owner and CEO is friends with the governor, and it's been referred to the AG's office. And I don't know what's going to happen to it from here. But I went into great details about the the fried and other aspects of that case at the responsible thing for a leader in that position that have very sensitive investigations going on to pass onto the next generation of leaders. A doctor loftiness. Wow. What we're talking about? Here is is corruption. But at the end of the day, it probably would have gone unnoticed. If we didn't have this tragic incident that happened. So let me ask you this head haciendas contract been pulled is it possible that we we wouldn't be where we are today. I'm absolutely certain. If. Contract have been pulled this patient would have been relocated to another facility, and it's very unlikely she'll ever been moved back to hacienda unless the family could private pay. What about the system needs to change? Well, in this particular system, you have a facility has been around for a long time and had a lot of political influence. We will in the means. I attended. Lee regarding not the criminal investigation. But the real location of the patient. DAS staff or terrified of of the CEO and his relationship to the governor. And they wanted to keep this a secret as possible somehow he did find out about it and started making political context the pressure on him to change. But these people were absolutely terrified in the in the in the can. I can talk our on change James. But there's another thing that also happened that made it. Facilitated this in the previous governor at the end of her term. They moved a most state employees as to what's called that. Will that means you could be fired for any reason at any time and not even being told why you were fired. They excluded the law enforcement state law enforcement, that's part of the deal with the police because the police have to know they're not gonna get fired for investigating the wrong. The friend of one like I did. So they made that concession, but the next session. Governor had to change all state law enforcement, with the exception of GPS are at will. And the police officer Bill writes going apply, so anybody that's investigating a corrupt political individual or someone that has crowd and has a relationship to put politics can can make a call and. Well, I'm doing the Gatien can be terminated for no reason, no recall, no recourse. And and that's that's that's that's a big threat to. Public corruption in their Rena police corruption. We have a doctor Charlie lopped in the center ring. He's has been with the law enforcement for over thirty years served with a miracle picante sheriff's office. Arizona State University police, Dr Loftus you you said that a lot of people were were afraid almost like a just you said they were terrified is. I believe the word you use terrified of this information, getting out terrified of what sir. Well, I remember when Tim Jeffries came into DS, he has some direction from the governor that I didn't hear the direction from the governor to him, but director j repeated over and over again, and I believe him that is mission was to clean up the ES make it a model agency and my direction was the to make certain we had a model law enforcement and security aspect of the and so a lot of people were. In the arena that got in the ESL worked or or or let go where fired the bullies the brutes the liars was leading to terms that director j us, and there were quite a few terminations, but that was on direction of a governor, the governor said clean, the DVD DS. And that's exactly what a pin Jeffries did man with that in mind and the time period, those employees had seen quite a few people that go, and so they they knew that the governor and the the director and quite a bit of cloud and if the. The governor had enough clout. They didn't want to lose their jobs because these people have no recourse. None. What do you think? It's going to happen. Do you think the the the things that you were investigating originally will be brought back the case? ES office got turned into a civil case. I didn't realize that there is an awesome political connections. Order DAS our VP AG's office show, they they ended up selling for a four million dollar complaint for about one hundred thousand dollars. I I'm not aware of this. Some recent event I'm aware that the rape and the birth, but I'm not aware of a debt. So what I'm saying is is is there's that wasn't the first complaint either. There was a complaint around two thousand three about hacienda. And and doing. Overbilling? Let's put right nicely. Overbilling creative overbilling. That's the rest of that interview is up on our podcast. But I'm telling you, it was explosive and the things that are being a bandied about trying to get down to the bottom of this. Of course, the New York Times has the story. I was totally this afternoon that even the story is being read in China. So more to come on that at six fifty. I I got in trouble yesterday with my discussion about Gillette and toxic masculinity. I'm going to have to defend myself against the Facebook, folks, and some other commenters out there.

I don't care about that stuff. I don't by themselves. So we now have two women senators to female senators. I don't care that they're female senators I care the kind of job they do.

So yeah, I mean now you've got to go back and manage your your owner. I think it's a little bit easier. Probably. In Phoenix with. I mean in Washington with Ted Leonsis compared to Robert sovereign in in Phoenix. Now, you know, there's a timetable to move Trevor REEs it that you know, the clock starts in about ten minutes were close to midnight here. So that now you've got a manage in you know, and figure out where's the next best place to be for him. So. This has been a particularly difficult week Roberts are for. Because. He had a vote that was that was supposed to be the city council, and look I'm not up on Phoenix politics. So I don't have all the ins and outs. But from what I from what I've read they had a vote in the city council to to get him one hundred fifty million now, again, I I wanna clarify here. I don't know how the Phoenix city council normally operates, but Bobby typically, you don't schedule that vote unless you think you're going to win it. So when that vote was scheduled Robert server must've thought he had the votes this kind of like Seattle few years ago. Seattle scheduled of vote basically to build their new to build a new arena. And all of sudden, there was a woman who flipped who flipped and all of a sudden they didn't have the votes they went from one up to one down. And it was a devastating blow. And now, there's not a new arena in Phoenix. Or in Seattle. They're building renovating the other one. And so here this vote was on. And it was clear that. That he had lost support. And the vote was not going to happen. And in conjunction with that. A rumor came out story came out in the Phoenix Arizona Republic that said that server was threatening to move the team. He was forced to put out a. A video statement saying that he was not intended to move the team, but it opened him up to ridicule which that that woman who spoke at the city council beating went viral where her ridicule him. So it was it was already a week. Robert server had taken, you know, holding some more ELS as they say, and then this happens tonight. It's. I wouldn't wanna be for, you know, changing the conversation. Dog. Yeah. Well, they did get win against Dallas. If that's any. They did. That was a big one that'll turn everything around for them, by the way. I don't even even like the idea of Austin rivers in the back court with the Booker. No, I I I put a soon as that came out and our half ago. I put Austin rivers at my by outboard. I had I had a league's acute it. I was talking with the league's accused of texting with them. I go this doesn't fit seem bad. And he goes, I wonder if they're just gonna cut him immediately. Now, I he was just guessing. But you know, there you have it Bobby Bobby has good feel. I'm just gonna keys the fact that normally whenever the trade that happens. Kevin potent puts out its trade grade, everyone within like within like three to six minutes already.

With about a month remaining in two thousand eighteen here, are you might want to address according to rust wiles personal finance columnist at the Arizona Republic. Russ. What do you have? Well, first of all it's not as fun as it had been in prior years to give your tax tips. Thanks tax reform. I mean, it kind of sacrifice planet, but there are or the planet in terms of tax. There are things you can do that is an issue for you. All right. So you mentioned the alternate your itemized deductions. What happens in that scenario? Well, one of the key focuses of tax reform was settled occasion released they tried to make it simpler and by one of the key provisions. There was encouraging more people to take the standard deduction rather than itemize their deductions. So I mean, itemizing is more complicated. As you. Now problem is a lot of people are not MC Ruby on the fence. They might not be able to itemize one year. They might not have enough snow to itemize every year take the standard deduction. Instead. So there will be some instances where they can. Much there some itemize deductions tech them one year or next skip one year double up the next year. That's the basic idea. We're speaking thrust wiles personal finance columnist at the Arizona Republic part of the USA today network. He's written a piece about five tips for saving money on your twenty eighteen tax Bill are and then timing end of year transactions point number to explain that. Yeah. Kind of elated is that in some cases, doesn't especially new, but it's a tax that has been around. But in some cases, you will be able to accelerate or take deductions and before December thirty January I take them in the current year. So you can use them in the current year. You might be able to delay or defer income to the following year. So you don't have to pay tax by the for another year. This is not a new strategy. But it's an it's probably not as effective as it once was, but there are a few things you might be able to do. And then one I think is. One possibility is medical expenses, which are harder going to be hard to do to deduct. Now, the the right off threshold horizon strum about seven point five percent of AGI to about ten percent. But there are a lot of elective things. And they're often big ticket purchases such as new glasses or elective surgical procedures that you might be able to you know, either taking the current year accelerate them or push to the next year deferred. What's the what's the the term harvesting? The harvesting is the idea that if you have if you if you incur some if you realize some of your some losses paper losses, turn them into actual losses. Say on stock portfolio mutual funds, you if you have losses if you the harvest losses tech the losses before year end, and if your total losses ex-teacher your gains, Hugh may be able to deduct really up to about three thousand dollars in losses. Against ordinary income. Thanks, russ. Russ wiles personal finance writer at the Zona Republic. It is thirty minutes now after the hour on This Morning, America's first news. This is WWE tommytucker.

"To do throughout the state, whether it be liberal conservative the Arizona Republic newspaper, which never endorsed his democratic candidates. Even endorsed cinema. Cinema per a person who wants to work to solve problems. She doesn't care. What party you're from? For me represents the new alligators that Trump is stuffing into his personal swamp. You said he wanted to drain the swamp and yet he's putting in people who seem to be serving their own personal positions in gains for power. I think Zinke is another example of that kind of new can't new Trumpian candidate. We'll Freddie forgive me for taking the call back from me here. But but I really appreciate your call. And her infra that's frady's view from Tucson Arizona about the downsides. She sees Martha mcsally really hitching her wagon to President Trump. Let's go to Iowa City Iowa were Georgia's calling you're on the air, Georgia. Thank you for taking my call. I have a list, but I basically know that I because I'm a retiree tired of hearing that Medicare and social security are entitlements men actually paid into the system all these years, and I worry about the value system, and the divisiveness and the lack of dialogue man is safe to have with even sometimes family members friends, and I really do think that words matter and also that laws apply to the president. So from day one, I have not liked President Trump for many of those value-based law-based reasons and have hoped a whole two years that he would surprise me. And he has not so I would not support from anything. And I feel like he is a real negative in. Silence and devices as far as any value system that I would have. Yeah. Well, Georgia I'm gonna Georgia. Thank you so much for your call here. It looks like we got a lot of colors from Iowa. So let's try to get one more in there. Kurt is calling from Des Moines, Iowa, and Kurt you just heard your fellow Iowan their Georgia saying that she. She has failed to be surprised by the president yet in a positive way. So she couldn't vote for anyone who's associated themselves with President Trump. What do you think about that Kurt? Agree. And I think, you know, being a purple stay twenty twenty coming up. We've swung pretty far to the right bowl statewide and nationally in our offices. And I think it'll be interesting to see you got a lot of three close congress races in a close race. Interesting to see how far I was swings left. And it might give us some idea of what kind of democratic candidate. We might be looking for in twenty twenty Kurt. Thank you so much for your call. I have to say, well, we appreciate what Kurt is doing and sort of bring your attention to what impact the midterms are going to have on the twenty twenty election. Lisa Desjardins returned back to you. I know right. Like, we're in the the perpetual forever elections like in America. No. But, but you know, you just you just heard all those colors feeling very strongly about what they do see at believe is at stake in this country. No matter, you know, sort of what how they're gonna vote. A who they're going to vote for have you ever seen anything like this? I mean, I feel like every political election in this country is fraught, but the tenor is remarkably different this time around two thousand and eight. Obviously was another election where the country was trying to figure out its direction. And there were there were great passions and reactions to the Bush administration going back way. So I think there's some of that dynamic here. But there wasn't the same anger that we have now on both sides and just in general, we're watching of course, the balance of power the governor's races are going to be very important. But I think everyone should also look at this election in a different way. There could be a generational shift happening in this election, where we see more young people more first time candidates running including in Iowa with cystic to your callers, a woman who could become one of the youngest women in congress ever. So there's going to be sort of fresh ideas potentially coming in regardless of which party does. Well, we'll Lisa Desjardins.
