Mahomes the rare quarterback with no weakness
"For the back on stage. Again for mahomes. It's quite a feat to be this good at this age. One imams teammate. Slave bell has only been with the chiefs a couple months clearly though. He's seen enough to determine that. Patrick mahomes could very well the the greatest player ever take a listen a great thing. More petty is. I never played these his first year. What are you gonna like popular. I think i was sitting out now. So i never played against bad but always of always washed on. I'm always thought he was like a great player. Then i came here. And then when i came here. That's when i really hit me like off like he might be the greatest player ever because the way practice. You know High goes about his business. People see the throws and things that have that he does in the game if things kind of like. I don't know there's like an accident but it's not he practices. It's so much like i wish. Obviously early practice unbelievable but my idea of thought. He's a ten before i came here now. These probably go twelve former offer running back. Brian west for joining us now brian. Good morning to you. Let me start with this. Eating people are rushing to crown. Patrick mahomes the next goat morning and you know this is going to be unpopular comment because i know we have the number one. She's saying in the world in nick right here but we are absolutely rushing to crown patch homes way too early but i understand why i understand. Why because he's had a great start to his career one of the best ever. We see the arm talent. We see all the special throws. But i want to remind you guys. Three guys bridge star drew brees and aaron rodgers. Three guys that have a combined three super bowls. Each one of those guys went to one and one thing that we want to talk about. Is that after. Each one of those guys won the super bowl. Everyone was saying they're going to be the next goat. They are the greatest of all time. They're going to go on a run. They're going to win. Multiple super bowls over and over and over. Brett farve actually made it to super bowl the next year in lost and that one so i think we have to be patient as far as how far we push these guys to saying that. They're the dote pack them host. Who has a long way to go and just to show that. I'm going to give you my top number one. Obviously tom brady ten super bowls being able to make the super bowl playing in his forties. That's amazing number. Two joe montana. Four for four in the super bowls they also achieved the rare feat of winning three in a row nineteen ninety there in the nfc championship game. He gets out by leonard. Marshall they won the super bowl that they would have won that game and then number for three. We talk about peyton manning. Mvp trophies and so we know how special peyton manning wasn't what he meant to our game. So i think we have to understand how much further patch mahomes has to go. But we have mentioned this as well if hashem aho's wins two more meaning this one and another one and then he goes on to shatter all of the passing and td record at that point. He enters the room with the conversation of the greatest of all time. At that point he inches that room. And then we say okay. Maybe it's not just about the super bowls. Maybe now we can look at the armed town. We can look at the mobility all the other things around. Just than just winning super bowls at that point when i look at it.

"Manager, Brian Good, inclusive, says Aaron Rodgers is our guy, no doubt about it. I don't. I don't think I have to do a lot of assuring him because I think obviously his place speaks for itself. But I will say this. We're really excited not only for next year, but they used to come and he's playing at such a high level. That he always has. And I think you know this. It was a Special year didn't finish like we wanted to finish, but I think I think everybody's you know purely Motivated to get back and I think like I said, I don't think there's anything that we have to do. Um, he's uh he's our quarterback, and he's our leader there in damage control mode. Big time. Absolutely. If they think about if there was even thinking about moving on from that you within the next six years if you have been thinking about moving on from that you were damn food. You're not getting it right here. I don't care. That they didn't go to the Super Bowl. You're not finding that guy walking around the streets. You're just not You're not finding it, So what they need to do is make good Super You sit down at the table break bread. How much do you need? We're going to extend you on what players?

Well, I'm not telling you what my conversations are. I didn't mean it would be casted. Keith E think the other thing two years If you give him the more money, it's not even like a saving face mechanism because when you have a quarterback that's unhappy. That is probably it's crazy is it sounded the world of sports underpaid for what he does. If you were to just say, Hey, we want to extend you. The love thing is the love thing. But if you just go out and say, Listen, we're going to give you more money. That's because you've earned it back to back NFC Championship game appearances they can appease and mollify him, which, obviously, part of this is probably squeezing out of extra few bucks. We get it, but they can do it under the auspices of the guys Heard what Where did you just use, which one? You said So after what I'm under the you said, Octopus. What was that? I mean, like, under the under the assumption. Yeah, under the assumption that you've earned this money, so it's not like we're giving this to you, too sort of Extended the olive branch or anything like that. You're taking us to the brink of the Super Bowl with head coach That's never been a head coach in each of his first two years. You've earned the money. I don't think people will buy that. But they could reasonably go to Aaron and say I brought you about performed it. You've earned it. Yeah, but however, they need to get their t close that gap. Extend an olive branch. Whatever it is, they need to do it. I don't care what it is make him the highest paid quarterback in NFL history by a landslide. Extend him out and being help him bring some players. There's open so that they could go on and try and win another Super way. You're paying more than Patrick Holmes. Absolutely. By landslide. Absolutely, by landslides.

Aaron Rodgers -- Think I'll be back with Green Bay Packers, but there are no absolutes in NFL
"Here talking aaron rodgers and relationships one of those two things. I know a lot about. Actually i know a lot about relationships too so shortly after the packers lost the. Nfc title game. Roger said his future is a beautiful mystery member that well in case you didn't take a listen and see how he now evident yesterday on the fat macrey show guys futures. Uncertain myself included. That's what's sad about most getting this far obviously is going to be an end to it at some point whether we make this or not but just the uncertainties from the finality of it'll now obviously after the season that i had You know potentially when mvp and you know we made it another good run. I don't think there's any reason why wouldn't be back. But look i think there's. There's not many absolutes you know in this business so to to make an absolute statement about something that is not an absolute just i. I didn't do it. You know. And i i guess that's why i went kind of nuts amount. I like you don't like you. I want to stay mixed messages. They're pro running back. Brian westbrook is joining us. Brian good morning to you. Glad you're here because we want to know what you make of. Aaron rodgers mixed messages will. Good morning jenner. And if you would ask my wife she would say that. I'm the king of mixed messages. But in this case. I don't that this is a mixed message at all. I think this was two things number. One it was aaron rodgers. Who was the mvp. Lee taking a shot at organizationto and basically say hey. You got to draft quarterback last year. And look what i just did. I just had an mvp season. So that's the number one thing. The second thing is. I think this is a player afternoon. Emotional game losing an emotional game. Nc championship game and he was basically saying who's being open. He was being candid and he was talking from the heart in. I remember the last last three or four years of my career. And of course i'm not gonna go conversation where aaron rodgers. Certainly but my was always. I don't know what's going to happen next year. I'm under contract. But i don't know what's going to happen. The team may move on. They're certainly going to be different players on his team. And there was always a thought that things may not go the way that i want them to and i think this is all that we're seeing for mayor. Rogers and lastly. I think we have to consider this. Aaron rodgers was standing across the field for tom. Brady tom brady. That was in new england for twenty years that nobody thought would ever need. Everyone felt he would end his career in new england because of all the success. He's had but now. Tom brady has moved on twenty season to go to tampa bay and his enormous success. Just beat me on our home field. You have to be crazy to think that aaron rodgers not saying to myself. What if i was to go to another team and maybe have a different type of success. That i haven't been able to have here in green bay. I think aaron rodgers was feeling all those emotions and because of that. That's why a lot of people think gets mixed signal

The Packers air getting some help along the offensive line. Veteran offensive tackle Jared Bell dear is signing with the pack just days after losing in the playoffs as a member of the Colts. If he plays on Saturday, he would become the first player in NFL history to play for two different teams in the same postseason. Belle dear, is allowed to sign with another team so quickly because he was a member of the Colts practice squad. Just another cork in a covert affected NFL season. I guess now don't get me wrong. This is great work by Packers general manager Brian Good against he's taking advantage of a roster loophole to snag a guy that filled a key role along the Packers offensive line last season. But something about this just rubs me the wrong way. Belle dear started for the Colts in the playoffs on Saturday, Literally. Three days ago, he felt the heartbreak of a playoff loss. He's suffered through the postgame locker room scene where tears were almost certainly shed. He wrote the team playing home to Indianapolis, presumably in silence and reflection. And now he's just shuffling off to Green Bay for another playoff game this weekend. Imagine how his cold's teammates feel. Hey, guys! Sorry. Lost, but I got to go chase down this Vince Lombardi Trophy now See you later. Something about. It just doesn't seem right. Coaches say it all The time you win As a team, you lose as a team. The Packers Val dear, and the NFL apparently didn't get the message. Today's extra points are brought to you by all right home and her modeling if you want it done, right call, all right. You stopped at the place Final doctor. Nobody covers the fact like us just wanna win. But if you can find a team that's weak, and then you could just beat into submission. That's fine..

There was more star with as you say, because this was quite frankly a more audible debate there was more back and forth between the candidates whatever you thought of it, and a big thing we want to start with on policy and law which some of our anchors of have touched on already is that exchange about child separation and immigration. Basically, the president was trying imply that the previous administration, where, of course Joe Biden Vice President had the same or a similar policy and that's not true. We'll put some of the data up here regarding child separation under the trump administration you. Have this three thousand children separated from their parents as mentioned, five hundred and forty five children have parents who are still essentially at large as far as the US.

They did not as policy target families for
OxiContin Maker To Pay Out Billions In Civil, Criminal Penalties
"The makers of oxycontin one of the drugs blame for sending off the OPIOID crisis will plead guilty to federal criminal charges. The Justice Department announced those charges against Purdue Pharma yesterday as part of an eight billion dollar settlement NPR addiction correspondent Brian Man is with US Brian Good Morning. Steve, how's a settlement? GonNa work. Yeah. So if it's approved by a federal bankruptcy judge, Steve The purdue Pharma will admit to the three felony charges including a charge that they misled doctors about the safety of medications like Oxycontin, over time, then the company would pay out billions of dollars in civil and criminal penalties, Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general who outlined the agreement yesterday says the sackler family would also be forced to give up control of their company. Instead of being the owners of a major pharmaceutical company, they will have no stake in that company. Now that sounds like a lot but critics are pointing to the fact that Purdue Pharma was already in big trouble facing bankruptcy struggling to hold onto employees and flooded with thousands of lawsuits tied to the improper marketing of opioids, and despite all that under this deal does federal deal the sackler walk away with most of their personal fortunes intact by some estimates there worth as much as ten billion dollars because of OPIOID prophets, they'll pay a fraction of that in penalties only about two hundred, twenty, five, million dollars out of their own pockets and Steve. There are no criminal charges against them the sackler. Admit to know personal wrongdoing. Well, how do prosecutors explain the deal would include no criminal charges and the sackler not entirely but mostly giving up a pile of liabilities rather than a penalty they would really feel. Deputy. Attorney General. Rosen was asked about this yesterday and he says these penalties go as far as the government can right now holding purdue and the sackler accountable. There is no law that says if you've done something wrong, we should just simply strip somebody of all their assets in existence that's not how it works. It has to be that we are looking at specific ex wrongdoing civilly or criminally, and then having a proportionate response but a lot of people including more than two dozen state attorneys, general dozens of members of Congress advocates for people suffering from addiction. They all say, this isn't proportionate response. They say members of the sackler family played a personal role pushing the prescription opioid boom developing these illegal and deceptive marketing practices that made purdue. Pharma. So profitable the Tissue James is New York State Attorney General, and she's suing members of the. Sackler family, her team tracked hundreds of millions of dollars in opioid prophets that the sackler sent to offshore accounts. She told. NPR. This justice department deal doesn't go nearly far enough doesn't account the hundreds of thousands of deaths of millions of addictions caused by produce farmer in the sackler family all of destruction that they have caused it basically allows billionaires to keep their billions without any accounting for how much a really made James says her state probe of the sackler family will continue. Meanwhile, there's one more detailed, the settlement that sparking. Anger, it turns out purdue. Pharma doesn't actually have enough money left to pay out the billions of dollars agreed to in this settlement. So the plan is for the government to reorganize Purdue Pharma into what's known as a public benefit company that means prophets from future sales of opioids like oxycontin would be used to pay for drug treatment and rehabilitation programs around the country Greg mcneal lives in. Ohio. One of the states hit hardest by the OPIOID epidemic and he lost his son Sam to an overdose five years ago. He. Says this idea of the government getting into the OPIOID business now after it's caused so much harm. He says it just feels wrong it. It just seems ill advised having the government entered into that business. Gosh. There's something about that. That just doesn't doesn't add up at all. And I should say Steve Twenty five state attorneys general agree they signed a letter last week they send it to Attorney General William Bar arguing that this arrangement is ethically wrong and could shelter purdue Pharma and the sackler from future criminal or civil liability Brian Kennedy at least be said for the deal that there's some money here that might help people harmed by the. OPIOID. Epidemic. That will definitely that's what the Justice Department is saying. So let's take stock for a second nearly seventy two thousand people died from overdoses last year this is still ongoing. A lot of those were opioid deaths. What US attorneys say is if this deal is finalized by the bankruptcy court, it would mean extraordinary new resources for states and cities and tribal governments struggling to keep people alive. But one thing everyone agrees to here is that this problem is so big now affecting. So many Americans they say the eight billion dollars from purdue, Pharma is really just a drop in the bucket.
Health officials sound alarm over surge of virus cases
"New York and New Jersey. Becoming Mohr Corona virus Positive again. One thing's for sure. We are becoming Mohr Corona virus nervous again. But the latest headlines tell a mixed story. Today's Corona virus Headlines on Gothamist Are these New York's positivity rape goes down, but hospitalizations rise That sounds confusing, will explain in a minute. Corona virus cases are up 15% nationwide another headline that has a relationship to this area. Laurel Park synagogue with covert positive rabbi still holding large indoor prayer services, despite $15,000 fine, by the way, something very similar. Happened in Israel the other day. It's not getting much press here, but we'll look at the parallels and why they matter. And back to Gothamist police arrest has she Tischler as his backers swarm home of the Jewish journalist he targeted and listeners we will talk to that Brooklyn based journalist Jacob Corn blue from the Jewish insider. Coming up in this segment, but first to that league Gothamist headline. New York's positivity rate goes down, but hospitalizations Rise with me Now is Gotham the senior editor Elizabeth Cam, who post regular updates on Corona virus in our area highlights thanks for coming back on the show. Hi, Brian. Good morning. Can you flesh that out a little bit or Fletch out each of those a little bit hospitalizations, air rising even as the percentage of new tests coming back positive. He's going down. So what I can say is that hospitalizations along with the positivity rate, which is the percentage of people testing positive are the two main indicators. That public health officials watch. Um it's a little bit confusing because hospitalizations tends to be thought of as a lagging indicator. So these may have been people who you know, during, you know that the positivity rate has been on the rise last week, so we could be that these were people who were testing positive. And then found themselves getting sick and having to go to the hospital. But I have to say it's still not entirely clear because these numbers also bounce around a fair bit, so it's not like there's been Um, you know, one day after another, a steady increase. On some days, you'll see that it goes up and not on other days, you'll see that it goes down, and that's certainly the case when you look at local data. In New York City. If you go to New York City's Corona virus data page, you'll see that that hospitalization number has been just going bouncing up and down, and it's not really clear. Um, Is this a serious trend? Obviously, the other number we're looking in conjunction with that is the positivity rate and for that we still been staying, like, like the governor stated like statewide. It's still been around 1% here locally, it's still around 1.5%. So Definitely two numbers that we're looking at here is Governor

"Pendant insured by the way, all right, it's 7 16. The legend Brian Good morning Republicans across the country running on a law and order chicken, But at least one local Republican Says that more police officers is not the answer to solving the crime problem in the city of Cincinnati, Jeff Pastor councilman telling the Cincinnati Enquirer that quote adding more cops of the situation doesn't reduce crime. He says. Cops by definition, respond to crime. And he says the solution to the problem of gun violence in the city of Cincinnati is spending money on things like funding neighborhoods and better housing policies and improve transportation. Pastor says when council gets backto work next month. Those are issues that he will be taking up with the city. Not necessarily, says de funding police but definitely setting AH new funding priorities a za different way to approach the problem of the shootings in the city. He says The approach of just putting more police officers on the streets and trying to crack down clearly hasn't working so more proactive than reactive coming up. That's what I say coming up in our news of 7 30, whether or not high school sports like football and soccer, played in Ohio will find out today. Details. 15 minutes, Ladies Radio seven. Let's go out to Washington as we do every time at this time of the day, And here she is. Karen Travers, ABC News and Carry. Good morning. Good morning, and it's ah breeding here. It's crunch time. The upcoming elections we got the Democrats and their virtual convention. The Republicans aren't the same thing next week, and the president's not letting grass grow under his feet. He was in the Midwest. I guess he's trying to preempt everything that The Democrats are trying to do this week. At least, that's what you asked about this yesterday. You know. Traditionally, candidates take this week to regroup. Sometimes they do a vacation in years past, while the other side is doing their big convention, But the president said yesterday you know you've got the time the weighs just 2.5 months to Election day. He's got to get out on the road because you've got to get to voters because, of course, he's been very frustrated that he hasn't been able to get out and do rallies in the way he would like to do them. The kind of working around the edges here. The president yesterday made stuff in Minnesota and in Wisconsin during these airport hangar events where Air Force one pulls up, president gets out speaks and the crowd is gathered. They're you know, they're not Riley's, according to the president is their peaceful protests in his favor. But you know, we're trying to replicate as much as they can for a campaign vibe because you and I have talked about this a lot. He really misses that He's off of that energy has been very Castrating for him, but he's been cooped up in Washington. We We are a country that re elects presidents. I think since 32 other than death, the only time it's happened was with Carter and Bush 41 sensors in their panic there with with this You know, I think there's been in the last couple of weeks more of a reality setting in despite what the president will say that you know, the polls are showing a real story and that everything is fine and he's tugging along the victory. Campaign aides have been telling him these polls are legitimate right now, and they are concerned about his standing not just in the national polls because, of course, you know that's not how the races decided as we saw in 2016, but That the fact that he is trailing Joe Biden in several critical battleground states. They have prevented this to the president on that's what you said a lot of shake up the campaign this summer. The president was frustrated with his leadership team. He demoted campaign manager and brought in somebody else, but, you know, I think for the president, he feels he could do this. He can get himself across the finish line and wins just on his own strength of the campaigner. But when you take that ability away, because you can't do those events like you used to think That's where he's very frustrated right now. It sounds that way. It really does even out here in Ohio.

You've been on this story for years and at a certain point, it just looks reckless. How could doctors still be over prescribing opioids? Yeah, it seems remarkable. What a lot! Lot of experts tell NPR's for all their dangers. opioids are still kind of hard wired into the American healthcare system. A lot of people for example have insurance that will pay for opioids, but not alternative pain treatments, also a lot of doctors were trained during the opioid boom, and they still see these medications as a quick convenient solution to patient pain. Here's Dr Jonathan Chen. He's a physician in California. Who Studies prescribing patterns if you look worldwide? We're like five percent of the population, but we consume eighty percent of the world's prescription opioids. It's not just a handful of doctors. Doing kind of all arts become a culture that this is normal so normal end deadly twenty the latest year. We have good records. Noel forty people were still dying every day from prescription opioid overdoses. Millions more saw their lives shattered by addiction. There are now tighter regulations in a lot of states. The healthcare industry gotten a ton of trouble. There were lawsuits. Billions of dollars were paid out or will be paid out. Are you saying that none of that worked? But what NPR found is prescribing has come down from the really crazy high levels. We saw during the peak of the OPIOID boom, but critics and people who studied this say progress has been slow and also really uneven. Here's Gary Guy. He tracks prescribing patterns for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is still three times. The amount of opioids being prescribed as there was in nineteen. Nineteen ninety nine and there's also substantial variation across the country. The experts we talked to said that last part is really troubling. It turns out. OPIOID prescriptions have come down a lot in some parts of the country. That's a big success story, but we found other areas of the US especially rural areas and parts of the south where the prescribing boom is still going full tilt enough prescriptions being written in those communities every year for every man, woman and child to get a bottle of pills. Are there differences within the healthcare industry like are certain types of doctors over prescribing while others are not. This is really interesting, so with the CDC. Found is a lot of healthcare. Workers Ignore Federal Safety guidelines that's across the industry, often giving these medications for twisted ankles and lower back pain that could be treated with tylenol or an ice pack, but studies also show yes, that there are sort of opioid. With in health, care, surgeons for example are giving out. Millions of VEX has pills every year, a new study from the University of Pittsburgh found dentists have actually increased the number of powerful opioids. They give out what that means is a lot of these pills going out into communities that can be diverted and misused. Here's Keith Humphreys. He Studies opioid prescribing at Stanford University you have this incredible reservoir pills, but doesn't exist in other countries, so it's it's remarkable. This continues and that we put this much potentially deadly drug out on the street every year, but that's situation we're in, and that's obviously super dangerous for those communities.
What Is a Jobs Guarantee—and Can It Work?
"Is spreading because of a virus. My next guest says Unemployment can spread like a virus. And she's got a solution of federal jobs guarantee. Many economists consider unemployment natural, unavoidable, even necessary to a certain degree. For the economy to function. But Pavlina Channa, who specializes in what's known as Modern monetary theory, disagrees the virus theory well as economic downturns. Cause layoffs. The recently unemployed have less money to spend, leading to a second wave of unemployment in the industries, they could no longer support. But what if the government could guarantee a living wage stop to any American Who wants one. It's an economic policy idea that some of you may know has gained traction not only as Corona virus unemployment has spread, but from well known progressive political figures recently before this, Bernie Sanders Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez. Cory Booker have back versions of this idea, or at least believe it should be considered as a response to Income inequality in America generally and toe automation and toe. Other things that cause structural unemployment. It's part of the green new deal the federal jobs guarantee. So joining us now is Bard College economics professor Pavlina Chan of Ah, Who's got a new book called the Case for a job guarantee. Professor Chernova? Welcome to WNYC. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me, Brian. Good morning. Let's start in the present because you wrote this book before the pandemic when official unemployment was down around 3%. Now comes this historically weird emergency where the economy shuts down voluntarily, and tens of millions of people lose their jobs all at once. The government responds with a patchwork of enhanced unemployment benefits and pay cheque loans to employ yours intended to keep A lot of that money passing through to some workers, plus the other kinds of pre existing government aid, like Medicaid and food stamps and more with the guaranteed job program, replace all of that. Under current circumstances. No, it will not replace. Any other measures measures that that might might be be considered considered necessary, necessary, But But it it is is The The most most straightforward straightforward solution solution to to providing providing jobs jobs for for people people who who need need it. it. I I mean, mean, in in the the current current crisis, crisis, we should have focused on protecting jobs. And preventing the layoffs that would have made the task of dealing with this avalanche of layoff much easier. I think we can look to some countries in Europe who have used again the public purse government budgets. To essentially guarantee a payroll for folks whose jobs are threatened from Cove. It's so unemployment rates did spike in some of those countries, but not nearly as much as they did in the United States. So Onda budget that we pass the cares act was so large, it was enough to pay the entire wage bill in the U. S economy for three straight months. So we could have protected Lee off jobs. We could have prevented layoffs, but the damage is done and unemployment. As I argue in the book is it's kind of a perennial teacher and the economy. So the way to inoculate against that is just to create jobs directly. How much would the living wage B? And a guaranteed federal jobs program. The proposal in my book is for $15 an hour, and that is really to help with the fight for 15 of that has You know, has had captured the interest and policymakers with the state level, but it might be, But 15 will not be enough sooner. You know very, very recently, so in in in a truck Order rather so maybe 17. But this is a policy. This is a policy question. The point here is to ensure that it's a living wage floor and that no person Works in a poverty paying jobs with a firm. A living wage for the economy as a whole. The minimum wages you know, is 7 25 and it is not a living wage is poverty paying wage, so it represents about a doubling of the minimum wage. Significantly elevated the floor. Yes, And that's the federal minimum wage, which might be shocking to some of our listeners since the minimum wage. Around here is $15 an hour, but federally and therefore in some states that don't have the same politics, say New York and New Jersey. It's still down around that poverty wage. As you know. Other progressives proposed what they call a universal basic income rather than a guaranteed job. Andrew Gang, for example. Ran for president on $1000 a month Universal basic income proposal, But I don't believe there is a work requirement, just the money as a universal basic income. Sent to every American Do you argue that a guaranteed job solves the same problem, but in a different way? No, I think the job guarantee souls more problems. So $1000 a month. While very nice doesn't really lift people out of poverty. It helps But the job guarantee guarantees a living wage. And so when a person needs work, and they go into the unemployment office, which by the way is called the American job Center. They can find a lot of other assistance that they can't find a job. And that's what the job he does. It insures that there's a public service. Hollis option employment options for those who need work, and we know from basic income experiments that people who even get the income assistance still looking for jobs. So the problem with the job guarantee salt is this. Basically cruel game of musical chairs that people play in the labor market, and they're looking for four jobs, but they're not enough employment opportunities for all, even in the best of times. Forget about Cove it even when the economy is humming near full employment. We're still talking about millions and millions who don't have employment and The unemployment problem is there It's as you were saying in the introduction, ending a lot of social health, economic cost. It's paid for innocent and so we can do things better. By using the public purse to employ the unemployed. But I want to say that it's not. It's not a week requirement. The job guarantee doesn't provide a requirement for the benefits that people might be receiving. It's an additional program so You could have the choice of getting unemployment insurance and the various other income assistance provided out there. But if we gave people one more choice To pick up a living wage job offer. Then that provides stronger economic security.
What crisis? Nasdaq nears all-time highs, defying toll of economic shutdown
"The president has he's noted he wants to see society reopen once see the economy reopen but we do want to do so safely and there are institutions that are put into place the social distancing measures yeah I had to you know we talk about the economy all won the baby get numbers that came and that was up from the Florida legislative office of economic and demographic research yesterday how big was the April hit two fours economy are pretty big we exceeded the the first quarter revenue estimates every month even March where things you know began to hit the skids but in April revenue came in twenty five percent below pre pandemic estimates and the shortfall your every year more than seven hundred million dollars loss revenue for the state of Florida just that one month and it's going to put additional pressure obviously I just on the state's economy but also the budget talk about governor de Santis the judicial nominations to be spring court wife doesn't big decisions on his on his hands here including the budget it was passed at a record ninety three point two billion dollars we are getting I nearly five billion dollars in relief under the cures act but it looks like there's going to have to be some significant budget cutting so we talk about the economy joining us now one of the preeminent condiments Stephen Moore you may call him at Stephen Moore on Twitter as stable we take a look at the economy right now there's been a bit of a disconnect I think with the economic reality purses yeah the stock market for example what do you see what's real and what isn't right now hi Brian good to be with you well first of all remember that that you know people have been asking me this question the last couple days like the stock market doing well when the economy is doing so poorly and and it's the first wall of stock market investing that the stock market is looking ahead right it's like you know what the economy's gonna look like you know two months from now three months six months one year two years three years down the line where are the numbers that you're reporting which are awful just awful I mean we've done significant damage to our economic infrastructure because of this crazy shut down which I think is three Bucks we'll look back and say this was one of the greatest errors and mistakes out of work you know in our nation's history but in any case we are where we are and the good news that the stock market is looking ahead at the Hague there is a light at the end of this tunnel that's why when I get up in the morning you know the first thing I look at is it a lot what is the stock market telling us not because I'm interested in greed of making money off of that making money everyone I'm like you know fifty five percent America that you have money in the stock market but I'm interested in what is one of the investors around the world think of the prognosis for the economy and right now you have a cat big stock plunged another wall we're only down fifteen percent of the stock market for more war before court of Irish ship that's an amazing statistic about a nasdaq is higher than it was today than it was before at the beginning of the year it's pretty wild how much of this though is the federal reserve backstopping trillions of dollars to end and popping that into the markets and then just investors having a place where they want to put their money ultimately so the what I just wrote a column on this the biggest danger other than the you know qualifiers right now is deflation we have we've deflationary economy I know when I see the people of Iraq we have deflation the fed has been poured money into the economy they've been putting a lot of money they've gotten by now stops at even lower interest rates but they need to do more not less that's because if you look at consumer prices they've been falling electric commodity prices have been falling remember what the office which is actually starting to make a recovery sell a lot you know at the beginning of a step back so we do need dot more dollar liquidity some people are gonna probably weren't alive I wish you more say that we've already put so much dollar liquidity in the economy that's because whenever you have an international crisis remember this is not just a crisis night stated happening around the globe the first thing that people buy weapons when you have a whether it's a terrorist event or a war or you know a major earthquake or natural disaster people flat why what we need to buy dollars so there's been a mass rush to buy dollars not bad have to accommodate that by putting more dollars into the economy so I'm I believe that that lack of monetary policy has been pretty much doing the right thing all they need to do more of it one of things we need right now by the way is to suspend the payroll tax you know it's just on the payroll tax right now so that you know you want to get people back to work like a business will help you got wanna give everyone of twenty eight million small business in this country aftermath without reduction okay all cost and then you give every single worker in America some hapless okay right what if your recovery that's the single most important thing we can do is to find the payroll tax

that's the way we're going to be so I like what you like to see clearly a love that twenty twenty well you know its very clear to us at least that's we've just had a decade that was primarily in the political correct realm course you remember all the political correctness has gone on and I don't know if you know this is where the term political correctness comes from thank you from the Soviet Union that's you if you were not politically correct you were sent off to a re education camp otherwise known as a prison until you learn your ways to come back and be politically correct to make sure that you did everything the state wanted you to do that's where the term prove politically correct comes from makes sense that it has its roots in communism had ties have its roots in communism so the National Review did a a little twenty four most of flooded Klay absurd politically correct moments of the last decade and your your gear to shake your head when you hear some of these the claims in university a college diversity training course taught it was culturally insensitive to expect people to be on time yes it targets attendees it was offensive do expect people to be on time because time may be considered a fluid in other cultures not making this up I got a problem with that we tell you so may god that doesn't work in radio okay no it's here it's everybody's been broadcasting no that doesn't work yeah number to it the phrase trigger warning was deemed a trigger a piece in every day feminism which is I'm sure a magnet a publication both the you read every day yes warning itself is exactly it is also a trigger because it could be re traumatizing folks who suffered military police and other forms of violence yes because there's a trigger on it yeah okay okay I get our full yeah it's crazy a professor was accused of sexually her of an accused of sexual harassment so you're saying that effort is ten percent of the grade this is from Brooklyn College City University of New York professor was forced to change his syllabus after he was accused of sexual harassment for stating that efforts was going to be ten percent of the grade I don't really get that out of a I don't I don't understand why that would well who what this has to do but I will click on the effort to says the professor David Seidman see university of New York they said that it was a title nine violation was his existing by efforts he was encouraging female students to come on to him is that yeah this is very confusing it is but for you they said the Camry now on this article here my department here would say the triangles are a problem they said the classroom was an unsafe space for those uncomfortable with view points which they may disagree all constitutionally protected speech is welcome he said the it had to do with turning triangle sardonically instead of quote marks I don't know what they all all okay okay the use of triangles was something that the **** did to the Jews in concentration camps and they was the he was using triangles as a symbol for how much people were giving effort in class that's what it is and somebody most of study to history class or taken a history class and found out that the triangles and something to do with Jews in concentration camps okay all right so this one little bit more complicated than the headline would let you know pretty complex campus

think that's more offensive smoke yeah time college students decided against bringing a camel to school for hump day due to concerns about racism against the camel cultural appropriation maybe exactly your university Saint Thomas in Minnesota award the presence of a camel might offend middle eastern students wait a minute that concerned about offending them offensive that's what I was just going to

S. and I asked him if this penalizes the Sackler family enough financially for their role pushing opioid sales we are certainly believe based on representations made to us by their counsel that these are numbers that represent a significant portion of of what the shock we shop bailable. it's clear though here Steve is that even after the settlement the Sackler's will remain one of the richest families in America and they're also doesn't appear to be any admission of wrongdoing I guess that explains why New York state's Attorney General among others are very unhappy with the settlement. yeah we've seen a really fierce response from attorneys general around the country Connecticut Massachusetts and other states of the soccer family is hugely controversial a lot of evidence that they played a big role in pushing opioid sales over the year at years and remember you know two hundred thousand people have died and now there is a very real prospect that members of the family will walk away fabulously wealthy because of oxycontin sales well you have some states are even half the states were to reject this deal does the deal still go through and is it a settlement. yeah this is going to go to bankruptcy court and there could be a whole lot more litigation in negotiations there if these states refused to get on board billions of dollars going to flow from this and whenever there's that much money there's going to be a big fight there's no formula for dividing up the cash meanwhile the one thing that's interesting here is the state attorneys general even more of them now are promising to continue suing the sector family directly going after that personal wealth even after this company produ pharmacy says to exist well I'm curious about that wouldn't this settlement to affectively preclude other lawsuits and if it didn't when the Sackler's be refusing to sign off at all well that's gonna be an interesting question in fact these attorneys general say that they think they can pursue the Sackler's and the money that they pulled out of this company over the years a lot of the litigation focuses exactly on that question what happens now with thousands of other lawsuits that focus on other pharmaceutical companies and distributors and pharmacy chains and everybody else right negotiations going on right now with other big drug companies name plan companies like Johnson and Johnson the federal trial is scheduled for next month in Ohio so there's pressure to get more of these deals done one other big development Steve that happened yesterday is that the federal judge overseeing that federal case damn poster he approved a massive expansion of local governments included in his case it now involves tens of thousands of cities and counties other local jurisdictions they all have a stake now and how this litigation plays out so the pharmaceutical industry's financial liability for this epidemic is still potentially massive Brian thanks for your close attention to all
Green Bay Packers fire coach Mike McCarthy after loss to Cardinals
"Missed the number opportunities throughout the game. The voice of coach Mike McCarthy actually make that former coach Mike McCarthy he was fired Sunday after the laws replaced by offensive coordinator. Joe Philbin team, president Mark Murphy. In a statement saying the twenty eight eighteen season, quote as not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers. Mccarthy was in his thirteenth season as coaching Green Bay win the Super Bowl in twenty ten but this is a third straight season where the Packers abs- struggled ESPN Packers reporter robbed Moskvy. This was always going to be a difficult season for McCarthy. Given what happened nearly a year ago when they forced out general manager, Ted Thompson, remember Thompson was the one who hired McCarthy back in two thousand six they didn't just change general managers this off season. They changed the entire power structure, and they only gave McCarthy a one year extension. So he was under contract only through two thousand nineteen and the structure change was this instead of the general manager having the authority over the head coach team, president, Mark Murphy. Took over the authority and McCarthy reported to Murphy, the GM reported to Murphy, it was entirely different power structure. So any sense that this season didn't go or wasn't going to go as well as they had hoped? You had to wonder if this was coming and with those stretch that they've had the four losses in five games on the road. And then coming home today an embarrassing showing on offense. It all goes back to when Aaron Rodgers ripped the offense here after their win over buffalo. That was the first real side of the beginning of the end for Mike McCarthy, as we mentioned Joe Philbin will take over an interim basis, but with that being said long-term word you the Packers go here from here. I should say in terms of a new head coach. Yeah. Well, Michael, I just got a text message right before we went on the air from a player somebody who played prominently in today's game and said who do you think our next head coach will be so even the players want to know that they possibly made this move to try to see if Joe Philbin was the guy. Remember Philbin was a coach in Miami. Mike Patton is also on the staff. Former Browns kit coaches a defensive coordinator. But more than likely they will go with someone who can bring some new offensive ideas to this group that the big question now, though isn't necessarily who's going to be the next coach. It's who's going to hire the next coach just Murphy stay in that role or does he then turn it finally turn it back over to Brian good accuse after Kuna proved himself to be a pretty good talent evaluator and building the roster. The feeling here is that they need to go back to the structure of the way. It's been over the years here. The general manager made all football decisions. We'll see if that happens Murphy, we'll talk to reporters tomorrow here early afternoon. Mike McCarthy fired in his thirteenth season is Packers coach longest tenured coach in the NFL remained Bill Belichick with the patriots. Mike Tomlin has been with the Steelers since two thousand seven in the Sunday night game against the chargers. The Steelers leading sixteen seven

We're gonna be joined by Paul Mckee at the bottom of the hour and Joe Lieberman. In fact, Joe Lieberman. I know the larger pack no get to you. But I gotta get Senator Joe Lieberman in here. Now, Senator welcome back. Brian good to be with you. Let happening listening to you. This is let me tell you going back to what you said at the beginning with Curt Schilling a wonderful guy, we spent a couple of days with him when he was campaigning for John McCain for president in two thousand and just take a moment. And let them tell you some stories but his baseball career including one I'll never forget about Cal Ripken. But I'll save that for him. And you know, Senator divert the the first Red Sox World Series since think nineteen fourteen he was a key player, and they didn't invite them back for the reunion. Yeah. Yeah. Not not good. Really why why was the he's an outspoken guys? That's the problem. I guess, but he's a great baseball player. And and and it's brings me to say this is a near gatekeepers fan. Win the World Series. So you gotta be grateful. All right. A couple of things first officer that exchange play we just played with Jim Acosta and the president have you ever seen a reporter more off the rails in that. Or do you think the president wanted it? You know, I don't know. I that's a heck of a question about whether the president wanted. It's things have gotten really bad, and there's a certain way in which the press some of the press and the president are war, obviously. And to a certain extent there there've been super aggressive. We're kind of facing or maybe even goading him to loses self-control. So we said that happened yesterday. And you know, is it good or bad firm? It's probably both. I mean, a certain number of people so good for you. Mr President another group says well presidents shouldn't lose it like that. So, you know, it's just honestly, it's so typical of the way things are alert people blame a lot of people for the division in our politics, Brian and a lot of people blame the president for everything pre existed him. But honestly, the the media has some responsibility to because that's where people get the news. I just think I never saw scientist respect. I remember if few interrupted the president and one on one interview President Obama you looked at as. Too aggressive in rude. Now, that's all you get. Yeah. No. It's just combat and. Honestly, it's not good for the country. I don't think we learn anything from it. In other words, it's not like this is what the process to do to get information to. So that the American people know what's happening in their government. It's just like crossfire. And honestly, the important stuff often gets lost in the crossfire. So I wish they could. I appreciate it. Incidentally, that the president said I guess over the last weekend when I asked him if he made mistakes he couldn't everybody makes mistakes he said he couldn't probably softened his tone a little bit. And I hope you appreciate it that I hope he does. I mean, obviously killing himself has president be pushed around, but if you if you softens his tone a little bit, I think it will make people who don't suffer their tone. Look more responsible for some of the division going on in our country today that that doesn't help us. So here is so we have split government. Now, the house goes about thirty plus seats, it looks like it's going to the Democrats. And it looks like the Republicans could be adding two or three seats depending on ours. Arizona goes, so what are your thoughts? How do we function from here? You've been down this road before I have, and and you know, a couple of things of generally speaking, sometimes when there's a president of one party and the other party controls one or both houses, you actually get things done because at some basic minimum level, they gotta compromise at work together or the government stops. And everybody loses from that. And what I mean is you gotta have a budget. You may have to do something about the debt limit who knows. So that opens the door to compromise. Frankly, I've thought through all the flack over the last couple of days you had a couple of encouraging things happen in her victory speech. Nancy Pelosi actually had a pretty good riff about unity. And fact, you want to listen to a little bit play cut there. Okay. I.
