Power Grids Feel the Pressure of Intense Storms

"Hurricane ida crumpled a major transmission tower. That survived katrina sixteen years ago building infrastructure. That strong enough is hard when the target keeps moving because storms are getting stronger energy consultant alison silverstein says utilities and their regulators can take planning cues from murphy's law. We need to assume that everything possible that could go wrong is going to go wrong. Simultaneously and murphy is always gonna win. President biden's climate plan includes a much bigger role for electricity electric cars. For example cutting carbon footprint says easier with electricity from emission free sources like wind solar and nuclear. But even those have to stand up to extreme weather putting wires underground may seem obvious but engineering professor destiny. Knock at carnegie mellon university says that won't always work in hurricane country where you might have under grounded. The lines to protect them from wind putting them underground makes them more susceptible to flooding knock. Says it's never just one thing that's going to keep the lights. On energy experts. We interviewed agree on a few basic ideas though. They say the grid should be more decentralized so the whole thing doesn't shut down at once. More generation out in communities such as solar power would accomplish that but new orleans utility energy has resisted calls for just that to the frustration of local activists at mit engineering professors. Or up. a mean says not all the fixes are technical. He says power companies also need to become more agile and do more when responding to storms the fact that some utilities are not able to sort of respond immediately is also another kind of failure which is perhaps as drastic as the infrastructure. Failures is assuming outages will happen. Amin says utilities should focus more on dispatching generators even before a storm to make sure important facilities and vulnerable populations get electricity restored as soon as possible. All this cost money that usually ends up in utility bills. Congress is working on major funding through infrastructure bills. That could address some of these issues. There also focused on president. Biden's climate goals including zeroing out greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five.

"More clip. It's house republican leader kevin mccarthy who you just described a minute ago in his interaction with the president at that time. And here's mccarthy speaking back in january when a second impeachment of trump was in the air calling for guess what instead a fact-finding commission these facts require immediate action but president trump except his share responsibility. Quell the brewing unrest and ensure president-elect biden is able to successfully begin his term and the president's immediate action also deserves congressional action. Which is why. I think a fact. Finding commission and censure resolution would be prudent so based on that moore. Should i assume kevin mccarthy voted for the commission last week. Well he's talking about a fact finding commission. I'm sure he would say that. Commission that has been proposed which is an outside commission is not the same thing that he was proposing but the fact that he proposed a censure vote as turn it to the second impeachment of donald trump. That's also significant. Kevin mccarthy has changed his mind he wants to be speaker and he wants to win the twenty twenty two election and he is making a pretty interesting bargain that he can You know agree with president trump without quite saying so. I don't think kevin mccarthy is actually said the words i believe the election was stolen from president trump but He said the other day. That joe biden is the president that seems to be the new place that republicans are landing the safe lily pad yes. He's the president that's true. He lives in the white house but they don't want to contradict president former president trump who believes and continues to state that the election was stolen from him. And the joe biden was was illegitimately elected But there's no doubt that kevin mccarthy has undergone a transformation and that is one of the reasons that there was this huge rift in the in the house republican conference and why they booted liz cheney out because she continues to stick to her her firm conviction that the republican party should not be associated with a lie. The lie that somehow the the election was stolen from donald trump. We should point out however as you have in your reporting that thirty five. Republicans did vote for the january six commission last week in the house. That's a small number out of around two hundred in the house republican conference but it's a lot more than zero which democratic bills off and get. I heard you talk about what that means on the npr politics. Podcast the other day. Would you go into that here. Yeah i think that thirty five people voting for the commission is important. Now remember on january. Sixth two thirds of the house. Republicans voted to overturn an election. That the judiciary the judicial branch which is the referee when we have disputes had determined was free and fair so a majority of of republicans in congress and two thirds of house. Republicans voted to overturn a free and fair election. However and only i i'm trying to remember. Seven senate republicans voted to impeach. And how many ten..

House approves Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, with no Republican votes

"The House of Representatives has approved a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief. Package for those of you keeping track with this bill. Congress has now spent roughly $6 trillion to bail the country out of the havoc caused by the pandemic. And to put that into perspective that is about seven times larger than the stimulus passed back during the great recession of 2009. His latest bill includes a fresh round of $1400 stimulus checks, also a new and expanded child tax credit to rent relief utility relief and more money to help the uninsured by health coverage through obamacare. The bill passed with no support from Republicans, President Biden plans to sign the bill into law on Friday. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now, with the latest take Kelsey Hi there so no support from Republicans and tow layout. Republicans say they oppose it because it's not targeted enough. They argue it controlling the virus. They also say it's just we don't need to spend this much because the economy is already on the path to recovery. Do they have a point? What we're talking about here is really a question of two really different ways of viewing the economy and this pandemic. Republicans say that GDP numbers Wall Street All of these things are improving their you know the unemployment rate is falling. And they point of funding for the arts and humanities programs, museums and things like that is not necessarily about the pandemic on the face. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also compared federal spending in this bill to socialism, and he said, it just isn't sustainable. Showers money on special interests. It spends less than 9% on actually defeating the virus. They're really focusing on that money about getting back scenes out. They're reopening schools. That is the core of what Republicans say the money should be spent on and some Republicans said during the debate today on the House floor that sending checks to people is just popular, but they think bull object once they realize how much the government is spending on things that are not directly related to coronavirus relief. Okay, now, how do Democrats respond? All that Democrats? Say that Wall Street gains really just paper over major problems in the economy that are not felt by the vast majority of people. The vast majority of people are not stockholders, and they say This bill is meant to be a big social safety net. It's supposed to have more support for the uninsured. Like you mentioned more support for families with Children, people who are unemployed. People who are homeless and people who are struggling to make rent. You know, unemployment is improving, but the job Liz rate is still nearly double what it was before the pandemic, and the number of long term unemployed people is still up by three million this year, and that's all, according to the official Bureau of Labor Statistics. There's also money in here for institutions like museums that have been shuttered or have seen revenue declines that threatened their ability to reopen one vaccines or just tripped, barred out and distributed and people are going back in, and Democrats say this bill is about the whole system. No, I will note that Americans a lot of Americans seem to be on board with this legislation. Polls show fairly widespread support for it, which is something Democrats like 2.2. Are there potential political downsides here, though, for four Democrats, while Democrats say the Republicans will pay the price for lining up against something that is at this moment so popular House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pointed out that people who will benefit from this bill don't just vote for Democrats. And she says Republicans are voting against something they'll take advantage of later. It's typical that they vote no and take the dough. And this bill has bipartisan support across the country. You hear her? They're speaking through a mask on the house floor. But you know, a lot depends on how this is administered. Will it go out slowly You do. Schools actually reopened. Do bad actors get money? And does he economy actually improve with this infusion of cash, and that's all a

"Police said. This was not an accident. We do believe that the explosion was an intentional act. Shortly before the blast police had received reports of shots fired have also responded. They encountered an RV that had a recording, saying that a potential bomb would detonate within 15 minutes. The blast caused widespread communications outage is that took down police emergency systems and grounded flights at the city's airport. Nashville reporter Kyle Haran is with news Channel five. He joined us earlier and explain where the RV was parked. Which explains the communication trouble. All we're hearing is that this happened right?

The president did not hint at his next move. Instead, he addressed the distribution of Corona virus vaccines. It is truly a Christmas miracle. On Tuesday, the president suggested he would veto the bipartisan legislation unless Congress increases stimulus checks. From 600 to $2000 believe it or not, Democrats agree with the president yesterday, House Democrats tried to do just that. But Republicans blocked the measure. CBS is Skyler Henry on Capitol Hill. The relief package is linked to a $1.4 trillion government funding bill. If the president doesn't sign it, we could have a federal shut down at midnight Monday. Next up the U.

"Is demanding changes to the coronavirus relief package passed by Congress. In a video he put online. The president's slammed Congress for putting a lot of foreign funding in that bill. Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests. While sending the bare minimum to the American people who needed It wasn't their fault. It was China's fault, not their fault. President Trump is finding an unlikely ally after he demanded direct payments to the American public increase from $600, which is what Congress wanted to $2000. Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker says they're ready to bring a bill to the floor that would do just that.

"Mitchell mentioned the $300 a week in extra unemployment benefits that is said to be in the relief bill. Congress is said to be talking about Not often mentioned given how much we've been talking about unemployment insurance since this pandemic hit is that our unemployment system is 85 years old and hasn't seen a major reform. Since Gerald Ford was in the White House. Cathryn Edwards studies unemployment insurance at Rand and given how critical it is that is to say unemployment insurance is in this economy right now. Thought it might be a good idea to talk. Dr Edwards. Thanks for coming out. Thank you so much for having me s so when when the economy started going south back in late February early March, and those of us who don't Study the labor market and unemployment saw that the crater that was happening. I think a lot of people were caught unawares. Were you surprised at all that the unemployment system sort of got overwhelmed? No. Because the problems with the system have been known for decades. The real weakness and unemployment insurance is that the people who financed the program and the people who administer the program or better off when fewer people receive benefits. Right. Your state has to finance attacks on its employer base in order to pay for benefits. And states don't like doing this, You know, I mean, you can imagine the Amazon headquarters search, they said one of the components of their process would be what the employer tax was in the state. When Congress saw that a recession was coming. It knew exactly what it had to fix and they did it. They did it all on the single legislation. Unfortunately, they headed all expire. Right. Which gets us to the current moment where there is so much peril as Congress decides what it's going to do. Yes. Um, I often joke with my friends that perhaps Congress just has a flair for high drama, which is why they keep on establishing benefits in the middle of recession and then threatening to take them away, but possibly extending. It's not a very fair thing to do for the families who are relying so entirely on these benefits. Because there is no job to be found. How much of the well I'm going to say this function. You may disagree, because arguably it's working, but how much of the dysfunction of the unemployment insurance program? Is because it's kind of a state and federal hybrid. I would argue, especially in terms of fraud. It's most of it, but on the benefits side When you allow benefits to very across state, you create a wedge between what someone earned and what they get in a benefit, right? So if I were to apply for Social Security, old age insurance tomorrow, And I found out that because I lived in Texas, I got half of what I would have gotten. Had I lived in Oklahoma right people would be Incredibly upset, And they wouldn't be able to believe that this benefit that you paid for and worked for is ultimately going to be filtered through what your state feels is worthy right? It should be based on you. We do that for old age insurance, But we don't do that for unemployment insurance. Yeah, so given that on the one hand we tried to reform or fix the unemployment insurance system. In this country several times over the past five decades. Uh but on the other hand, we saw Congress in March. Work unbelievably quickly to shovel trillions of dollars out the door when he was desperately needed in in unemployment and business support. What's your confidence level in in finally being able to rectify the wrongs? You know, the question you're asking is have we reached a turning point? One thing that the cares act included that I thought was pretty incredible was that it added to the reasons for unemployment insurance, caring for another person carrying for someone who had covert or caring for school Children that had no other option. So my hope would be that we would act boldly and broadly and thinking, not just hears this program that's joint state that has eroded benefits, but we have an economy that has risk. That workers are exposed to that we should cover efficiently because that's the best investment for the economy. Dr. Cathryn Edwards.

"The second today is coming up before eight o'clock and a portion of that report is going to be bad news. Right now. We're joined by San Antonio. First news National correspondent bills in for Bill Congress could be coming back to Washington and there right in the middle of Ah, August recess. I'm going to guess that it doesn't have ordered. I wouldn't say that. It doesn't let me say that. I don't think top priority is going to be stimulus checks. Yeah, it could be all connected. But I on the surface, No. And first of all, Charlie, this is very unusual for Congress to interrupt their summer recess. They weren't scheduled to come back to session until after Labor Day, and this doesn't happen very often. But now Nancy Pelosi has put out the call for the House of Representatives. You return. She wants to vote on a couple of issues on Saturday. The first would be a standalone emergency funding bill for the Postal Service, and the second would be a proposal that has been through the oversight committee. And it would require that the Postal Service returned to its operations and level of service that were in place as of January 1st of this year, meaning that any changes Put into effect by the current postmaster, General Lewis to joy would have to be reversed. So ah, they will return and perhaps take a vote on Saturday. Also to joy will be before that oversight committee on Monday. But this is largely going to be expected Political theater, since there is no indication that the Senate Will return from their summer recess. In order to take up these measures as well. Now, why say this is all connected is this could be part of an effort to try to again get negotiations going on a stimulus package that would give some funding to the Postal Service and Senate Republicans, as a matter of fact say they do have a proposal. That they are going to unveil kind of in absentia that would provide some money for the Postal Service and some money for extra unemployment compensation. Things like that. So this could be a negotiating ploy. But I would say more political theater than anything else right now, Charlie. Yes, you mention the house went on vacation than the Senate adjourned last Thursday. How suspect has come back today after Labor Day and the Senate of the following Monday on September 14th the spoon to stimulus relief. Whenever those negotiations resume. I think it's clear that both parties were trying to pass the full bill. The problem is there an odds on just exactly what that means. Yeah, I does It mean do you include provisions for mail in voting in there, Which Democrats want to do? In fact that's been included in the measure already passed in the House of Representatives s O. Of course, we all know the president's opposition to that. What will it include? That is always the big issue on DA already, though, we have heard Mark Meadows say. The chief of staff that they're ready to go on stand alone legislation on things like emergency funding for the Postal Service, So there are still some questions many questions to be answered here, but it doesn't look like there's any immediate solution to. Ah, a number of problems here and you know, Charlie, I was just looking back a year ago. We were talking about. Ah, we were in the wake of mass shootings in El Paso And in Dayton. We were talking about immigrants being jailed at the border. Thousands of immigrants. Ah, and there were some big issues. Immigration gun control. Being among those those have simply disappeared. Who would have thought? That a year later, the number one issue out there would be the Postal Service. But I think that's a blanket statement you could place on the entire year of 2020, who would have thought exactly San Antonio.

think that that divide gets even wider should president trump you know get reelected that's that's going to I think it is more or less I hope not but that's that's what my my feeling is but I think that works you know the more likely the federal government spending more at eight o'clock into the corner and the lord general government spending the fewer options that have as we move forward in time because then that that that that that holds all of these discovery allergies and just think that the school realities facing our country is incontrovertible you there's no way of getting around it when the debt goes up the cost of servicing that debt increases when interest rates go up with a lot of people predict will happen by the end of this this decade the cost of servicing that debt starts to crowd out all of the other expenses that were required to pay my long history Medicare Medicaid so it's you know it's there's no way around it I keep you know back in World War two when we

easier to raise taxes because we've done it in the past that much more difficult to cut social security cut Medicare cut Medicaid and so we're just we have very few options left in in terms of how we want to solve this fiscal crisis lives the case in our nation other then to raise more revenue into what I've been trying to trumpet well the last couple of years is that every year that goes by where the federal government fails to do anything is a decision unto itself and it's going to necessitate even more draconian fixes on the back end and so I think the Democrats seeking information that we're debating the crises of identity I think that ideology and were also facing a crisis of mass after all the comptroller general of the better things you said yeah I I don't know about I don't believe Joe Biden's gonna be Benny better and healing the nation's wounds if anything it may be worse but it's it's quite a it's it's quite a troubling spot our nation is in we need big bold economic bipartisan solutions I think something like a work from home mandate for all government workers getting rid of some of the blow to of the federal government for sure there's a lot we can do but certainly that there is a math problem regardless so we are heading off of the fiscal cliff covert nineteen has made things worse what did people do with their money and people listen right now okay I have and even before that you know I have a four one K. or IRA and I'm choosing to defer taxes to a later point in the future when the guy at work told me I'd be in a lower tax bracket and now you're telling me that I won't be in lower tax brackets what do you do yes so here's the deal we have been we've been down this notion you know conventional wisdom is that you are going to be a higher tax bracket today therefore you get the deduction wall tax rates are higher so that you know so that when you pay the tax somewhere down the road the math makes sense that you know that extends the life of your investment because you're getting a deflection the higher tax rate and then you're you're actually came back with a local exactly a quick story at the end of the day should be about a month ago a lady came up to me she says just as he did not know I had a really bad mood she says I've got all my money in the tax deferred bucket I said let me let me see if I can understand that's right you've got a deduction and when you contribute money to this account at a hearing finally Barclays would dramatically higher than we are today you now you now have you got a deductible so can't hurt you now have a six year period of time during which to take advantage of historically low tax rates you can get all those tax deferred out the it's just a medically reposition attacks brings another contact weeks potentially double overtime you've done all the heavy lifting you can now take all those dollars affects three I said is that why you're such a bad mood and she says well gosh they I never really thought about it that way so we just you know people treated this you know having all the money in the tax burden laces it's a bad position to be in but actually given where tax rates are today you've actually played your game perfectly you played your game perfectly you got it actually actually you now have a six year period of time during which you take it into the store we love tax rate give that money systematically recognition he text me over the next six years so by the prime package go up you can take that money out tax free week I mean there's never been a better time to

J. so J. J. is a J. J. the CPA goes all round educating doctors and others giving he is a accountant to accountants he educates them on various parts of the tax code and as a national expert on covert nineteen and the new tax bill I've been following them for I don't know how long on social media all of a sudden he started blowing up on linked in and I see his face all the time J. J. I need to get your people for my social media because apparently a client of mine said I looked like a character on Fraggle rock the film no I I I don't know that I have to get a better lighting video you know I looked like Nixon and the Nixon Kennedy debates you must be a big Nixon fan to pull that out yeah we we need to I am a Nixon history buff I find him a fascinating character in history you know I need to I don't know why I think when I was a kid I was sort of a a contrarian so you know everybody's doing their report on how amazing characters that I really want to learn more about Nixon so I did like all these reports on like Nixon and you know you're you're dressed up as a president people dressed up as JFK or Washington or lack and I dressed up as Nixon with the next thing you know what I liked about Nixon was he tried so hard now was born in sixty two so you know that was not really my era but he just tried so hard to see the movie with Anthony Hopkins plane can you really see that come through he just really wanted it but you know what I think that's kind of what got the best of the meaty wanted it so bad and then once you got it he wanted to keep it so bad and that's what led I think to just that one misstep yeah it will ruin the you know he he did a lot of interesting things so who do we have calling us for JJ disobey Michael from New Jersey go ahead you've been waiting patiently Michael from New Jersey go ahead thank you I'm calling about the twelve hundred dollar check to find out if I'm eligible my income was only sixty three thousand but I took an IRA distribution this year of twenty two thousand and I have a social security benefits of sixteen thousand so what number did they go by adjusted gross income one hundred and eight thousand well they go by your taxable income well that is a great question and when you're looking at the law I have been speaking for that I am going to I am unfortunately going to have to throw a guess at it because that's what they that's the position they put us in a taxable income and the reason for that is that when you're looking at a number of the other benefits that are in the IRS code it is a lot of times based on the taxable income taxable income band would be specifically based on like when you mention social security it would be based on the amount that was actually taxable and with taxable income of course that's after your itemized deductions or losses and that's a great question because there are going to be some that they had big capital gains and so how did that affect things so it also could be them very well based on your income I know it's not a great answer for you but I would say this to you so you're at sixty three thousand and you pull those additional emails and many people think when you hit seventy five thousand it's an individual you're out of luck what happens is is an individual thirty five thousand merry finally jointly a couple it's at a hundred fifty thousand but you just start to lose and it doesn't sound like a good thank you start to lose or part of the check that you're gonna get it get it get phased out so it's not an all or nothing what you get ninety nine thousand single hunt back eight thousand very finally going like that unfortunately it's going to be completely phased out and Josh that's what I have to explain to that doctor that was that the lake out on his boat literally yelled at and your make too much and that you're not gonna get a check anyway and you ruined it for your son because you over seventeen he didn't make enough money are you still claim them and bottom line is is it is going to it is going to probably help Michael their teachers the unit should it sounds like okay great now J. what about this doctor because we have a lot of doctors listening people successful it's not good they're not going to get the twelve hundred Bucks I gave you the twenty four hundred Bucks but they will get if they own a small business they will get access to the small business loan through the PPP and break that down where they can get ran you tell these role until like eight weeks now does that also include income like so if this was something we had the JK Lasser's small business tax burden on tax expert so let's say the doctor on the boat makes children fifty grand okay per year all right does so eight weeks would be about forty thousand Bucks something like that forty one thousand six hundred Bucks on like that but would they get that because they're losing that income for the weeks of their in the affected zone that's something I'm reading the text of the bill eight hundred page I have in front of me the the final decision the carers act and and I'm you know I could see it go both ways and then when I one of the SBA website to apply for my own small businesses were hit hard although folks we are open.

O. weapon are eight eight eight nine eight eight Josh and make sure you don't panic you prepare so we talk about trust what trust you like and do you like particular states to have the trust in anything like that yeah the book of the read book dot com and now we're given the book away few scheduling keep innovation view at eight eight nine the Josh will go ahead on trusts yes it depends on what we're looking for for looking at the state planning that it's going to be a living trust if you're considered concern about asset protection then it would be an asset protection trust me you don't have to set it up in the state in which you live typically what we would do for asset protection trusts we use Nevada their statute great statute keeps creditors away so we set those types of trusts up life insurance okay so this is a great tool that people should have just you know for for state taxes for wealth replacement for for income in the future for certain types of policies I know you talk about it in your book you mention it so you could set those up to what's called an irrevocable life insurance trust to make sure the assets removed from your state you have spousal access provisions he can still a benefit there I'm so when it comes to trust what we're looking at is a tool to fix I need that someone has and many times financial plan often influence but see PA they're not up on him and so what ends up happening is people that have been down on him because they don't understand them and their uses for most individuals for sure it's the living trust is is something that should start with because that's going to ensure that their state passes and not talk about you have young children let's say you what would happen if you and your spouse passed away how's that welcome going to be distributed to them and I can tell you you know growing up when I was in a fraternity if I'd received eight hundred thousand dollars at the age of nineteen I might still be in after Attorney today unless somebody around help because at that point you're like you're just not mature enough and so he said that things up correctly in any a trusted environment you can ensure that that well not only will pass on or pass on your children your beneficiaries going one for multiple generations and there can be good stewards of that money to ensure that your family is doing the things that you want for example the translator that we set up for our children one of the things that requirement in there is that they become productive members of society so we built in provisions that if they don't agree that a great idea yeah live in listening guy I want my kid you know let's not underestimate that I want my kid to be great productive member of society that that's actually one of the hardest things I was talking to Tony Robbins a couple of years ago he said the greatest problem that successful people have is often with their children or spouses and and teaching them to have that hunger and business drive and a set of throughout all a we were at a worse magazine events and I got to do an interview with them and he said the one thing you can't teach is hunger and and that you know especially if you're going through things and we have a lot of great clients and that they're going through stuff with their kids and could be addiction it could be struggles it could be motivational struggles and sometimes it's because that wealth that you've built is a crutch so I always tell my kids that you're on your own for college you know like I like I want to have them sweat for something that's one for anything now and they get everything so and we can say I'm responsible I'm going to teach them about money you know and when the truth is you know ninety nine percent of Americans for their children even if you don't have much I'm of my mother we had no money and she spoiled us so you know she she she went without food so we would have stuff SO I would have a basketball hoop at Christmas and weird stuff like that so you know you never know in either I don't really want to have your kids sweat but it's a good thing to have and build that into the state plans how would you do that so I have six kids what do I do you know what I do with my six kids so they don't become spoiled brats so here's what I would do it you bet your concern first off I would stay in my estate plan that they're only to receive as much as they earned so for example with our kids he stated if you if you go out there and you want to loaf around in life to be a professional PlayStation sports you know gamer and you're making fifteen grand a year than the most you'll ever receive from this trust is fifteen thousand dollars you make a hundred thousand then you can make a hundred thousand swine matched the distribution to the amount of income because I look at it is after they don't put a lot effort in life than B. after that my wife and I put in our lives is it going to be there to enrich them so we tie it to the amount of effort they're putting him but at the same time you recognize or certain aspects of life that are that we think are important or certain lifestyles for example if our our daughter wanted to be a stay at home mom I'm not going to penalize you for that so you're not entitled to receive anything until we carve out exceptions for things that are important to us within our family values that we would recognize through the trust but it's designed to incentivize them to do certain things rather than just be a trust fund baby I mean you talk about your your parents not paying for your child's college education I was pretty fortunate that my dad my parents paid for mine but at the same time it wasn't free in the sense that my dad would still call me up at six o'clock on a Saturday morning he would say Hey I need you to re Ruffhouse today on callow and if I even pause to say well I might have something to do if you get real quiet that's a dead you there you go down here we'll what do you think any goes I'm just trying to figure out how much money you need to make within the next three months to cover your law school education next year because that's what's gonna cost you I don't see you in there in an hour to re roof that house and it's it's a reality check right in I get it if he was teaching me something along the same time is that you have to work for things out of life you just know he's not gonna sit back and give it to me it has to be earned and so you can do that through a trust I love that that's fantastic and you mention solutions with regards to children and you talk about the homemaker situation so say a semi daughter once become a homemaker have be like her mom to do great things at home how would you what language would you include in that trust where would complete missions in there that you would by the aids that stream of income to them while they're a homemaker raising the kids the the benefit of doing that as well is that you ensure that it may be if they went through a divorce that the that they're going to be taking care of the fifth other spouse could not reach in and take those assets so my dress it's pretty pretty broad as far as if my daughter wants to be a stay at home mom take care take care of her children raise the kids we know because the way we raised her and what she saw growing up how important that is that was one of our R. sum to the Tracy and I talked about that was a major value for us in the community it turned out to be their kids went on they got they have great scholarships in college and that's all testament to my wife in the mount of effort she put in to raising them and so if they're incentivized to do that than the trust incentivizes them by providing them distributions so what no but I mean how how do you put that type of language we're going to provide a set stream of income up to what you know like I like tell you gave us the the language only can receive what they are and match the distribution to the amount of effort so so what is it what what type of language do you clued in that you know says with that with that type of situation what you're what you typically do is you would allocate either a certain percentage of the trust income or a set dollar amount that would be indexed so the way I look at it is that I would provide that if they want to go out and buy a house that we would allocate up to two hundred thousand dollars out of the trust for the purchase of a residence for them so it's enough to give them the down payment but at the same time I'm not going to give them your multi million dollar homes or something like that because that wouldn't be in my mind it's not warranted the income on the trust would be that we set up a certain amount of income that she would receive on a monthly basis that we feel would be sufficient to produce a a standard of living that would allow her to raise the children but at the same time it's not going to be lavish and extravagant so you build in there that they want to take family vacations you can specify that X. amount of money can be provided for family vacations for this for them but at the same time one of the things that I feel is important that family vacation should also be about learning so if they wanted to go to let's say you're of course not now but if you did want to go to Europe then I would allocate more for that type of experience than I would if they wanted to go to Fiji and hang out on the beach because I don't feel that adds to the learning experience for for the kids and so you can get that granular with your distributions but mainly it's a set stream of income on a monthly basis is the way I put it in and your trust yes subject to like inflation or something well well this is current fantastic interview Clint Coons website is reap.
