Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died
"Bader Ginsburg was a force to be reckoned with. All I asked about brethren. They said. They take their feet off our necks, barely 5 FT. Tall but a liberal giant, only the second female justice named on the Supreme Court serving there for more than a quarter century. Her path to the highest court in the land was not easy. As one of the few women at Harvard Law School she faced discrimination. After graduating from Colombia in the fifties, her tenaciousness in the classroom highlighted in the Oscar nominated documentary on Ginsberg titled RBG produced by journalists Julie Cohen and Betsy West. She was one of nine women in a class of 500. She was tied for first in her class. And the Big New York City law firms just weren't hiring women, not a law firm in the entire city of New York. Did for my employment charging forward, she became a beloved law professor rockers and worked as a lawyer for the O U, She mapped out a legal strategy to file lawsuits against gender bias in employment, housing and government benefits. Man and women are persons of equal dignity and they should count. Equally before the law, You won't settle for putting Susan B. Anthony on the new dollars When they would say things like this. Haven't you respond? Well, never in anger, Mother told that's that would have been self defeating. Always as an opportunity. Teach. I didn't see myself was kind of a kindergarten teacher in those days because the judges Didn't think so. Sex discrimination existed. One of the things that tried to plant in their minds was Think about how you would like the world to be for your daughters and granddaughters. She won five landmark cases, which she argued on behalf of women in front of an all male bench long before she sat on it. Ginsberg went on to serve as an appeals court judge in the nation's capital until that life changing nomination by President Bill Clinton in 1993. I am proud to nominate for associate justice of the Supreme Court. Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That announcement may never have happened had it not been for the intense lobbying effort by a staunch feminist, her husband, Marty Ginsburg, and at her confirmation hearing chaired by then Senator Joe Biden, the nominee did not shy away from her feminism spotlighting contentious topics like abortion rights. This is Something central to a woman's. Life to her dignity. It's a decision that she must make
Former Republican Governor of Michigan Endorses Biden for President
"Endorsed Joe Biden for president. He said President Donald Trump was not covering in the interest of the entire nation. I was at the nation's Capitol when Trump gave his inaugural address. I had hoped this first speech as president would be a message to unify divided nation. Instead, I heard a speech directed at how It would help the people who supported him. And sadly, that is how President Trump continues to govern. That's what he wrote in the USA today and then the free press governor. Snyder also criticized the president's 2017 tax cut and said Trump's foreign policy had produced some good agreements, but overall, our nation is no longer respected as a leader on world affairs. Jonas is Dick. Hey, Verner, Dick Wei talked a little bit about this yesterday. You weren't terribly surprised by this, But we're gonna have former governor Rick Snyder on in a little bit. And there are a few things I'm curious about. And one of those is and I wanted to get your take on. This is If the Republican governor doesn't like trump, and clearly he doesn't. Why not suggest ah, not endorse anybody? Or maybe endorsed some other great Republican as a write in candidate just to show your displeasure with the president. Why go so far as to Endorse a Democrat to endorse Joe Biden. Is there something about Joe Biden? He likes so much that's going to make him a great president. If he's just making a statement that Donald Trump is not not his guy. Why not endorse whoever his favorite Republican is as a writer? That's good question. That's a very good question. Because the governor Snyder says he is still East still considers himself Are Republicans. So why vote and why come out for a Biden, for example, his good friend John Kasich ran for president. Then he dropped out. Why not write in John Kasich as Hey, has the person he votes for? So that's a good question. Another good question would be what Policies of Trump. Does he support He can't be against everything that Trump has done has got to be something there that he likes because they're both Republicans. And he, after all, is the governor who several years ago. Boosted supported ram through and sign the lot. The right to work law in Michigan, making It's a ah ah, situation where we're workers that Aaron, a union covered by a union contract can drop out of the union and still be covered. By the terms of the contract, something that unions viral it Lee against. He was the right toe work Governor. So that was a very conservative move on his part, something that would be ah. Aligned with what the Trump administration is done on so many issues, So yeah. Ah, you raise a very good point, And I think I think that there's just something much bigger than this. I think I was reading a little bit of cut the Lincoln Project Republicans against Trump, but they are I think they're going to be coming out. Today, with maybe hundreds of businesspeople, politicians, people who say they've been Republicans for a long time coming out and say, both for Joe Biden. And that's just interesting to me. Why they don't voice their displeasure against Donald Trump More than vote for Joe Biden does. If you're a true Republican, wouldn't you think? Four years of of the Democratic president would do more harm than four years of president. Republican president that you just think is a jerk. Basically. Yeah, well, I'm I'm sure that you will have the freedom to ask that question of the governor also if the governor comes out again Against President Trump. And for Biden, one of the high profile members of the Trump administration is Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos, who would have been a Big Snyder supporter Back in the day one. Snyder was governor. This would seem to Ah cut off the good relations that he would have with Betsy DeVos, Dick DeVos and the DeVos. Organization and forces in Michigan. What what does he Snyder Ah. Think about that is he Is he through with the divorce is or can he maintain some sort of a friendly relations with them, even though he comes out against Trump If it comes out against Trump, he comes out against Betsy DeVos. Right and I also wonder does does this make Republicans think twice about voting for Donald Trump? Or does this make Republicans think less of Rick Snyder? Well, I'm not the judge of that you had you had posed the question Previously. Does this persuade Republican voters? I'm not sure that people look Any more at the endorsements of anyone. In fact, sometimes I think when we hear about a political figure endorsing somebody else for office It's quite a Ah, it's quite a bodacious action on their part, thinking that they're so important that their endorsement is is needed. Bye bye. The voters that we just have to know who they support or who they don't. I'm not sure that Snyder, even even the endorsement of a governor. Ah, former governor is that important to voters anymore? Republicans or Democrats cave after

Managing the Risk and Impact of Future Epidemics
"Have warned of a pandemic for decades yet when Covad, 19 arrived The world had few resource is and little understanding. Betsy McKay, senior writer at the Wall Street Journal, has done a deep dive on the reasons Why, Betsy, what did you come up with? Well, we went back, You know, more than 20 years to look at. Basically how the threat of a pandemic and certainly the threat of epidemics has grown over the years and you know they were there have been warnings going back for decades now ever since. You know some of these new viruses, most of which come from animals. Charitably emerging. But we kept going from epidemic epidemic and making a few changes along the way, but not really taking a comprehensive approach and doing everything you need to do to prevent situation like the one we're in. So why is it that we wind up being reactive all the time? It seems and not proactive. Um, well, that's a philosophical and a psychological, In addition, feel policy questions in a part of it of human nature, right? You know, it's hard to imagine what could happen, but but on a policy level, it's very hard to get government. And how political leaders scientific leaders to commit. Money and time to a high consequence, low probability events as they call it, you know that will happen is likely to happen sometime. You just don't know when and the likelihood of that happening. Is it any given time is low, so people it's something you can push off until tomorrow. If we're signature, etc. McKay, senior writer at the Wall Street Journal, she's written a piece entitled A Deadly Corona virus was inevitable. Why was no one ready? Some of the other factors you put together here to about funding warning systems, the role of the World Health Organization, China's communication, I'd explain some of that. Well, you know, One problem is that as a globe, we never have really figured out how to go on an international level, Prevent and then and, um Uh, respond to epidemics. The world for Health organization is the organization that does that, But they're way underfunded. I mean, like Wayne hunted and most of the money in their budget. Is earmarked for specific project. Polio eradication is a big one. And a lot of the polio work does help build helps the stones, which also help you, you know, detect other other passages, so there's crossover but essentially There's never been a union nations coming together and working together and also You know? Ah. A lot of this prepared to sort has to be done by the national government. But again, they're all individually under pressure. You know, they have budgets to manage a lot of needs. You know if you've got a big Ah, Hurricane comes after to respond to right now, versus the threat of Ah sort of nebulous of a pandemic happening sometime. Where's your money going to go? And that just keeps happening over and over. She's Yeah. Right. So a cz we all know and believe at this point. I believe this won't be our last pandemic. So what about next time? I know there are lessons learned here. But do we put them to use and try to somehow prepare What's the big question, isn't it? I mean, some people say you know what Now the world has learned if he will never make this mistake again. As, uh, as a partial sceptic or sometimes skeptic. I wonder, you know, when push comes to show way certainly will be more than we've done. But what we do enough You know, it really takes changing the mind said a lot of people I have spoken with who were in government and leave these efforts have said, you really need to start Viewing. Um, epidemic in emerging disease as akin to a military sweat and you need to prepare For them in that way, so not sporadic funding really need to invest in this as a bit of a national security issue, not, um, kind of a side scientific issue, and things will come along as they come along. It's really like War. So when you look at it that way, you know, we certainly have a long way to go on. The other thing is months of The world of pandemic preparedness has been focused on a flu pandemic, preparing for a flu pandemic and again much of that work. Those prepare you for any kind of pandemic. But at the same time there was, you know, it's really interesting of growing threat from a lowly Corona virus, which until 2003 had only ever been known to cause common cold, inhuman. Thanks Betsy

Charities Struggle to Serve, Even Survive, Amid Pandemic
"During Times of need nonprofit organizations often jump into help. But now with millions of Americans out of work and donations, dropping many of these charities are themselves having a tough time making ends meet? It's an issue Wall Street Journal Senior Writer. Betsy Morris has been covering betsy first. Let's talk about where's the greatest need He S I mean right now there's a huge disparity in where dollars are going when it comes to nonprofits many food banks can't keep up with all of the. Funding that they're getting. You know also the work that they need to do, but they're really getting a lot of funding right now. And so is interestingly crisis. Nonprofit. Disaster Relief. So there's just a ton of money going toward say vaccine development or medical research, communicable disease research suffering right now are all the nonprofits that do kind of the their normal social service work. So taking care of all the the people who. Have lost jobs or about to lose shelter you know the arts have suffered a lot and. So. Yeah it's it's really unequal right now and betsy is their risks of groups will fold and are looking at innovation to help clients or raise money. Many of them a percentage of them nobody knows exactly how many probably will fail. But in the meantime yes there's a lot of there's a lot of innovation going on right now there's one little nonprofit in New York that basically is all about jazz and they can't have their performances they they. Help support young musicians. They can't do any of that right now. So what they've done which has been interesting is they just had a series of. You know kind of virtual concerts by individuals, jazz performers who were who are really kind of famous and very interesting. The Multiple Sclerosis Society had like many others in the spring had their annual walk series of walks around the country to raise money. and. They were able to raise less than half of what they would normally raise what it's doing now though is a real. Bike a thon comes now and into the fall, and normally that would all be in person part of it can be in person now, some people really on their bikes but but part of it is they've made it virtual so you can stay at home. Your Peleton or whatever you know. You're stationary bike is at home and they've been able to allow you to hook into what all the other riders are doing and have these events, and so it'll be interesting to see I think they're they're hopeful that that will be you know we'll raise probably not everything that they were able to raise last year but they will do better than half for sure. I think they think maybe two thirds of what they raised last year and the need is constant I mean obviously. Sometimes it will fluctuate but. But the bottom line here is at the neatest constant it is constant and these little organizations directors will say you know even though we're not allowed to have our. Tutor kids at our community center or. Counsel them if they're trying to kick drugs or alcohol. We're not meeting right now but we know those kids you need the services and probably even more than ever so and that's true of. All of the different people. And problems that these nonprofits grapple with. So just looking to the future what's the plan of? Attack Woods their business plan or is that just still up in the air like much of life these days I, think the business plan is to if the virus has affected, how they can get to the people they serve they've created all sorts of interesting ways to try to do that. New Ways. And in many cases, it can't be zoom. Because of the you know a lot of people don't have great, Wifi so but in terms of the funding. It's there are a lot of them who are doing quote unquote scenario planning. You know if we're able to raise as much with our our virtual fundraiser, then we can provide these services if we are not able to. Then we go to scenario be which is. To cut I, mean many are having to lay workers off lay off staff you know if. They'll figure out new in different ways to get the services to the people who need them,

But you don't always get cured you make Will this morning is Betsy McCoy. Betsy runs a foundation that studies infectious diseases and monitors hospitals Good Morning McCoy how are you. I'm fine but you yeah. No what's in the news now. John The reason that you and I are talking is that there have been major announcements this week about one of the most lethal pathogens. One one of the most lethal bugs ever had hospitals. It's called Candy. Oriss candy to US and It's so terrible that forty five percent of patients who contract it die within ninety days. Wow you're only going to get this bug in a hospital or nursing home. It's not something you'd encounter on the street or in an airplane. This is a healthcare associated infection. And it's probably the most lethal we've ever dealt with tip and I understand that if you're in a hospital that even if you just have your blood pressure taken you patch it well most of the people who get it are there for serious illnesses. They're in the ICU. They're on a ventilator there they have an IV they have a central line. They're having surgery. The fact is when you're in a hospital most of the time you are sick and you have these unnatural openings in your body that people out on the street don't have like an IV or a surgical incision central line or you're breathing with the help of a tube down your throat but nevertheless less you are subject to these infections and hospital.

Do you know how many people have died from sentinel overdoses in the last three years alone seventy nine thousand americans. That's more than all. The people killed the vietnam war. All the americans killed them. The vietnam war iraq war and afghanistan hostilities as well but cheryl oh but getting the prescription drugs these are supposed to be legitimate unfortunately if you get your prescription drugs from china and and as i said forty percent of the active ingredients are from china you really don't know whether they're safe because the FDA so them inspects these these plants in china <hes> some of them have never been inspected and we've had quite a few recalls now right now the FDA over the the last eighteen months. It's had fifty recalls of blood. Pressure meds from china because of contamination there contaminated with carcinogenic jets. I'll tell you <hes> betsy mccoy. You are scaring me and probably a lot of americans <hes> listening to this interview. You know the president said the other day. Let's manufacturer more things at home. We are going to start with drugs because we depend on them. For our lives lives. We depend on them for our national security. So why should why should we be reliant on a country that is clearly an adversary. Let me ask you missile quite you know somebody's drugs are imported by a some of our largest pharmaceutical companies merck pfizer hello johnson and johnson don't they have a responsibility to check the quality as they come in from china well they do and there there's a twofold full responsibility the companies and the FDA is well and unfortunately the FDA has really fallen down on the job. Here's a here's a piece of information from the general enroll accountability office a big federal investigatory office. They found worldwide the FDA only has twenty nine inspectors just to cover over three thousand four hundred factories so you know they're not getting to these places and one of the worst examples of what's what's happened with the drug called heparin and <hes> in two thousand and eight there was sticking widespread contamination of this blood listener from china but eighty one americans dodd eighty one americans from the heparin poisoning before lorde the FDA got on it that is troubling depending on wrote. I am sure the FDA is listening listening to this or read your your op-ed in the new york post written last week and i'm sure some of the pharmaceutical companies these have read it have you brought any particular people's attention other than writing this op ed piece well of course and i've i've had this column appear in many places across the nation syndicated and i'm corresponding with people about it because there should be more attention but i don't wanna unfairly totally blame the FDA because the onus of this responsibilities in china and the chinese officials literally refuse in some cases to aw acknowledged their culpability in that they resist having the factories inspected they repeatedly denied that they were responsible for the f. word poisoning which ultimately the FDA concluded will probably intentional not even just a question of the squalid factories where these drugs are made. They think intentional betsy mccoy <hes>. I think <hes> you were going to get everybody's attention on on this interview alone and hopefully that's going to help reduce the problem. <hes> let's go onto another subject. What else would you like to talk about sending morning. We had a couple of minutes left the issue of bathing. I think that's very very important issue because they bring is an ineffective harm reduction products for people who are hooked on cigarettes and in that sense. I think it's a very good thing but we don't know the long term consequences a bad thing but right now we're seeing dozens of sicknesses businesses lung illnesses across the united states mostly in young people and it appears that they're connected to bootlegger counterfeit bathing products addicts again brought in from china falsely labelled some of them are labeled with the jewel label for example flavored products the jewel took off the market many many months ago in cooperation with the FDA so you're looking at chinese so breaking the law and poisoning our kids how how clearly we can. I say it then most of its comes in from china again. Oh yeah because the investigations that are going on right now are linked to to these products which are falsely labelled they're being sold and smoke shops and convenience stores around the country and they're being brought in from china because the FDA bartha legitimate companies from marketing flavored vaping products so the chinese came right in with their poisonous false counterfeit products roddick replaced the ones that were taken off the market that mccoy i wanted to mention on the work you do and bringing these things to be attention of you've the pharmaceutical companies bring to the attention of the FDA. I hope <hes> we we make progress. I hope we keep all american and safe and hope we people americans healthy and thank you for the work. You're you're so welcome. Your show is a public service. Thank you this and we'll catch up again real soon when you haven't updated information. This is the catch roundtable will be right back..

"Well, okay. That's it. Thanks so much. Betsy. When I travel, I like to look like a boss bitch. And the best way to do that is with good luggage. And I just got some great luggage from away. They offer high quality luggage at a much lower price, cutting out the middleman and selling directly to you. They have nine colors four different sizes. I got the bigger carry on size which I love because I like having a carry on. I don't like having to check my bag all the time because I've had too many bad experiences with people losing my luggage. So I try to keep my stuff with me as much as possible by, like a bigger carry on, because I have a lot of stuff got so many toiletries so much makeup, so many hair products. I need a little bigger. So I got that one, but they also have other grace, I like the carry on the medium and the large pretty simple. Right. All the suitcases are made with premium German polycarbonate, which is lightweight and unrivaled in strength and impact. In resistance. So basically all the people who work at the airport, and still throw yourself around and it'll still look great. They got those three sixty degrees, spinner wheels, which are the best I love just zoom zoom in down the hallway I don't have to worry about dragging it or wheel brakes, or something. This is like I can just have it next to me. You know, you say those people are like, oh, that's a business person. They must travel every single day of the week. That's what you'll look like with this thing. And you will look so good. Also, this thing has one of those USB chargers, you know, when you see somebody sitting there charting their phone because, like, you know, you don't wanna be a plebe sitting on the floor next to a wall outlet. You got to charge it by yourself. So you can charge it wherever you want to with this USB cord. It's so handy..

"Let me introduce Hilary Shelton. He's senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the end of the Lacey pe- he's director of the ACP is Washington bureau. Hilary Shelton. Thank you for joining us. I appreciate it ethics. Great to be with you. So tell me what you're hearing in this conversation in what your take so far. If he were to give education secretary, Betsy DeVos grade, what would it be? Well, let's let me hold off on the great for just a minute Matali about some of the fixes and then we can decide great accordingly. Okay, we'll make this evidence-based, took out like that. Thank you, MS. The number of concerned pad as Mr. Voss's gone into to serve as secretary of education. I have to be honest until you and transparent as well and say that the NWC p opposed her confirmation because our feelings concerns were that are backed bounded experienced into lack the expertise necessary to handle issues a public education from pre k. through twelve. And of course, other big issues for the NWC Pierre concerns like higher education. I began hearing some conversation along those lines as well as the about the affordability of higher education. And he was talking about private higher education in institutions and the like, and some concerns we pay along those lines as well. And the n. AA CPA is also involved in a suit against DeVos. Right? Yes. Why don't you tell us about that? Because this is about civil rights laws right in the way they're the the way that they're imposed. Absolutely. Absolutely. So the NWC Pia Fata lawsuit along that friends at the national federation of the blind and the council of pant attorney. He's an advocates against US secretary of education and the department of education office of civil rights in the US district court in Maryland for the departments because the department road back, I mean, the civil rights enforcement regulations, we thought were crucial to making sure that every American regardless of race, ethnicity, points of national origin. Any other differences are even disability would have an opportunity to get a high quality education. We concerned the department of education pretty much summarily change the policies allowing for the dismissal of civil rights complaints, and the ability of organizations to appealed their rulings. So what that means is that we've actually cut out -tunities to make sure that it's known if an institution is discriminating because of wants differences and other challenges within our society and very well organizations should have an opportunity to file lawsuits when necessary and to appeal decisions. But the changes that have happened now at the department. Of education through its office of civil rights actually moved to make it much more difficult and even a limited opportunities along those lines. We're actually hold on Hillary because I wanna bring max into this conversation and max. What are you hearing an in Hillary's concerns about enforcement of civil rights regulations in the department of education? I mean, these things are are a balancing act, and I think the balance became way out of wack during the Obama administration. Right? He's talking about making it easier to Smith civil rights complaints, which you should be able to dismiss a civil rights complaint if you've spent years and years investigating and found no evidence of wrongdoing, but under the way the Obama administration do these investigations, certainly something like school discipline, it's it didn't matter whether or not you actually found any evidence of discrimination. These so-called investigations were actually an enforcement tool to core school districts to change their policies. So I think that these things are a balancing act. It's not about rights versus no rights. It's about how. Do we, you know, balance trying to make sure that students have a an appeal if they feel that they've been screwed it against without letting that become car 'blanche to have the department of education, rewrite local policies. So Hilary Shelton if it's about a balancing act, your concern is the balance is gonna little bit too far in the other direction. It's well. That's certainly what he's arguing, but I would argue that quite frankly, will be done now with these changes, it means it without they made these changes. Let me just back up for just a second without going through the legal required notice in comedy period, the would prevent the piano, the organizations to voice our opinion before they made these public changes..

"So during the September speech at George Mason University, she announced a new approach to campus sexual misconduct. DeVos repeatedly emphasized the plight of the accused here. She is one rape. Is one too many. One assault is one too many. One aggressive act of harassment is one too many. One person denied due process is one too many, though a secretary of education, Betsy DeVos. Let me introduce Maxine and he's a senior fellow at the Manhattan institute where he focused focuses on education policy Maxine and welcome back to one point. It's great to have you to be Anthony. Anthony, I know you've been listening along to this this conversation. How would you sum up so far? What Betsy DeVos has brought as secretary of education? Yeah, I think US early in the are with the grade would be I would give her a b minus. I think that she is taking the federal government's role in a more modest and quit, frankly, productive direction. But unfortunately, the things that she is doing require a lot of finesse and explanation and and kind of power persuasion that she hasn't quite been able to to muster. So I think that while what she's been doing, it's been substantively productive. I think she's unfortunately kind of discredited a lot of the, the, the reasons behind the, the approaches he's bringing to the table. And how so are you saying that it's essentially, this is a this is a question of of messaging as opposed to policy commitment? Yeah. I mean, I think that it's not as though it is only this kind of far right wing that was opposed to the Obama administration's. Very heavy handed approach and education. You know, the only major bipartisan Bill of the Obama administration was the every student succeeds act in which Republicans Democrats got together and said, the federal government has gone way too far in education. We need to trust teachers. We need to let them figure out these decisions. We need to trust local school boards. We need to rein in the power of the department of education, and that's something that was overwhelmingly approved in congress, but it's a message that she can't quite carry forward without becoming a lightning rod. So in your view, Maxine reining in the power of the department of education. Can you point to one specific effort that Betsy DeVos has made where you know there is a concrete effort to rein in the power of the department of education that makes sense to you even if she hasn't carried it out or delivered a clear message on why it's important? Yeah, absolutely. So one very clear example is what's called the significant disproportionality regulation and the yes. And there's a lot of this kind of language in the world of education. But go ahead, say it one more time. I just want to the significant disproportionality regulation, significant disproportionality regulation, explain that. So the Obama administration looked at the statistics around race and special education and thought that African American students were over represented in special education services and therefore wanted to create a formula that would pressure states to reduce this alleged overrepresentation. Right. Problem is research. The came out after that regulation was put forward says that actually, once you sufficiently control for enough factors there actually significantly underrepresented, do you have a regulation that's in place based on faulty data that would be pushing states to further serve already underserved demographic and the secretary as you know, thus far put that on hold and should rewrite it, but in the process hasn't been able to, you know, make a case as to why this numbers based approach it as. Misguided and she's just kind of gotten flack for, you know, ignoring potential discrimination over critics, say around special education at indication. Let's take some calls.

"So here's an example of that. This is a speech at the two thousand eighteen American federation of teachers convention in Pittsburgh earlier this month where the president of that union Randi Weingarten delivered a scathing assessment of education, secretary, Betsy DeVos here. I think it's safe to say the whole country now knows what we knew the day. Her nomination was announced that Betsy DeVos is the worst secretary of education ever so strong words there from Randi Weingarten and here's the Betsy DeVos in an interview. This past March Lesley Stahl of CBS sixty minutes. Ask DeVos about her policy believes her record of a chief -ment and we'll hear in this clip her popularity or her lack of popularity here. Does I have you become people say the most hated cabinet secretary? I'm not so sure how exactly that happened, but I think there are a lot of really powerful forces allied against change. Does it hurt some? Sometimes it does. Sometimes it does. Again, I think I think I'm more misunderstood than anything more than any. Michelle Heckman. We're coming up against the break, but in the fifteen or twenty seconds that remain. What's your answer to that question? I mean, she does seem to be a bit of a lightning rod here. What explains that? Absolutely. You know, interesting to me because a lot of the things that she's most hated for her school choice policies. She basically has very little leverage to actually adopt and make law. I think it's just, you know, she's gone done a couple of interviews where she's the stunningly, not prepared, and I think that in a really raised her profile among people who are ready to hate her, right, we're going to continue this conversation listeners. We're talking about what education secretary, Betsy DeVos has been doing this summer to reshape federal education policy coming up. We're going to hear from the attorney general of Massachusetts, who is suing devices, department of education will also talk about the department's changes to civil rights rules in the classroom.

"Faulting on their loans. We're going to these four profit colleges, and so the Obama administration created these rules that said, you know, if you're graduating students that are not making a lot of money and or taking on too much debt that they can't repay. We're gonna shut you down. We're going to cut off your federal money and and we reported last week that Betsy DeVos is planning to repeal that rule to sort of let you know for profit colleges operate is that used to write and this these these rules Obama wanted to put these rules into effect after the collapse of to for profit colleges, Carinthian college in IT technical institute which collapsed. They collapsed in two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen, and they were found to have misled students with false advertising misleading claims that kind of stuff. So these were rules essentially to protect students from this kind these kinds of alleged abuses. Right. Exactly. That's cool. We're saying, you know, if you. Through this program, you're, you have a ninety, nine percent guarantee of getting a job and students were enrolling in taking on huge amounts of debts, and those things were just turning out to be flatly not true. And this is also led to lawsuits by a whole bunch of attorneys-general across the country. We're going to be hearing from one of them at the bottom of this hour. But essentially, what is the case that these attorneys general are making. Well, they are saying they're suing Betsy DeVos because she is trying to repeal both the the game full employment rule, which would shut down some of these worst. The worst of the worst colleges, you know, the ones that really are not graduating people with any kind of earnings power. And then there's another rule that I think we'll get to in a moment that that she has sort of rolled back where students who went to colleges that defrauded them or allowed to actually ask the government to forgive their loans, and she's a sort of tried to make that process a little tougher. Right. And why is that? What's the argument in favor of making that process tougher for students who feel that they were defrauded? Well, there's a serious concern. You know the the money on the line is taxpayer money that these students are taking on forgiving, all of it sort of willy nilly is really going to cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of not billions of dollars. And so you have to be very careful. The other thing is that the government really tries to recoup money from colleges once they've once they've forgiven loans. And some of these four prophets were saying, well, the the process that you're using to determine whether we've defrauded or students is arbitrary. We're not really getting a chance to show the case that it was. We weren't lying, but it was that, you know, we're being wrongly targeted. And so some of the schools were being asked to pay sums of money that they said they couldn't afford. Now, another issue, the department of education physician interim guidance on how colleges should investigate and penalize sexual assault under title nine, which prohibits gender, discrimination in education. Can you talk a little bit about how she is dealing trying to make those changes? Absolutely. So for years, you know, President Obama had set out these rules governing how campus sexual assault cases could go on college campuses and the. A lot of, you know, specifically accused students, but also more broadly of of lawyers who were saying the process that you're setting up is really one sided and unfair. You know, it didn't some cases the rules. Let victims you know, ask questions of their, you know of the people they were accusing, but not vice versa. And so you know a lot of lawyers and accused student advocates were saying they needed to sort of level the playing field to give accused students more rights for the process. So it's fair to say that Betsy DeVos enter policies. Anthropology proposals are controversial. There disliked by a lot of folks who work in education..
