"That cheap are good to talk to you. Thanks for joining us. On the Bala Gez. Thank you okay. Some political notes from the week first of all the Biden campaign is adapting to the new world of politics. The Biden's are literally running a campaign from their basement. Using zoomed travel the country. Dr Jill Biden's last in-person campaign stop happened to be in Lansing. I was at that event and was over at the impression. Five science use IEM her first virtual campaign appearance also in Michigan. Yeah the world has changed immeasurably since that trip. And we've had to figure out what it means to run a presidential campaign when you can't fly or have a bus tour or even visit people's homes so today we're trying something new of virtual visit to Michigan right here from our home here in Wilmington Delaware. Now it's certainly not the campaign. I imagined north of the campaign. Anybody imagined it's it's interesting. I've talked to several. That are running to be national convention delegates for the Democratic National Convention. And I keep asking. Oh said well there's GonNa be a convention or if you are a delegate it's going to be on zoom and it's kind of predetermined but they're still running personally. I think this kind of works out in Biden's favor for a couple of reasons. It eliminates the wear and tear on him. Physically in presidential campaign is just grueling physically. And if he could run a campaign basically from his basement. I cuts down on the wear and tear. Which will cut down his gaffes. The other thing is it gives. Donald Trump were opportunities to make mistakes because he's added front and if there's one thing we do know it's not can make a lot of mistakes. Well I I kind of see it Differently because I don't have a problem with virtual campaigning at all. I think that's great however if you're campaigning online you're missing all the people who aren't online and we talked about that a little bit with. John Holy doing his virtual events. You're completely missing the people who can't see you and you're not going door to door. I don't know if there is a component of people going door to door with some door hangers or something that might be like. I don't even know if you can do that right now but we need to get out the vote in this election and we need to get to the people who don't always vote and you can't do that if you're just sitting at a computer you know delivering your message that way. So I'm not sure I don't really care for it being heavy on virtual but I understand that you know right now. I think that's our only option. Another dynamic is the vote by mail component. We just had a an election in Michigan in many communities or local elections and the secretary of State reported first of all we had record turnouts in the elections that were held in various municipalities and school districts around the state and ninety nine percent of the votes were cast by mail. Only one percent actually went to the polls in Michigan. Of course we've got laws that make that possible. What's going to be fascinating is? The state's Word is much more difficult to vote by absentee ballots. Some states require. You actually get a notarized statement that you're not going to be able to go to the polls other states can only do it. Based on a age That's GonNa be the dynamic an something that Republicans simply don't want they are fighting tooth and nail. They think that male in elections is the end of the Republican Party. And they could be right. Yeah and you know. Trump is trump is leading the charge talking about all. The fraud totally unsubstantiated. At least as far as I know if there's if there's something out there I haven't seen it You'd see county clerks in and County recorder's all over nation talking about both by mail being easier and better and it increases turnout it safer but then you listened to the Republicans even even Republican county clerks though like vote by mail and no reason absentee. Well the five states. Were they do it now? A Utah or Washington Hawaii and Colorado. I think that's all five of them. They've got experience with and they say it works. The secretaries of state of all of those states who run the elections are all very favorable. Utah by the way is is probably the only red state in that group but still the Utah. Secretary of State is very supportive as well. I think it's great. I think it was a in Michigan. It took it was decades overdue. God bless the folks who put proposal three through Led by the ACLU. Well Michigan has also in the first group of states where I never trump group of Republicans call. The Lincoln project is running a TV ad that has sent the great pumpkin.

"Stripping millions of people about health insurance even as we battle the biggest healthcare crisis in a century and Donald trump is quite blunt in his intentions. Obamacare is a disaster. But we've run it very well but what we are doing is we. WanNa terminate in healthcare for under obamacare. Because it's bad and we're replacing it with a great healthcare at far less money and it includes preexisting conditions. There will never be a time when we don't have pre existing conditions included. So what I'm saying that we're going to replace obamacare with great healthcare at a lesser price. And and you won't have the individual mandate which was expensive and terrible and very unfair to everybody and it was very above right. Of course they never actually provided any details of this plan to make health care better less expensive and still cover pre existing conditions. Attorney General. The Anna Nestle is one of the state attorneys general who is fighting the White House and effectively. It would destroy obamacare and all the protection provided to people during this crisis. It's really hard to imagine. How the trump administration could explain risking our entire healthcare system. Our family's house during the course of a global pandemic but that's exactly where we're at today also funding the administration is the American Association of retired people. Aarp on behalf of the nation's seniors. I talked with the former president of that organization Lansing Attorney or Schneider Wind. Eric Look at what. The trump administration is doing continuing to try to repeal the ACA through its filing with the Supreme Court. Are you shocked dismayed or just accept it for what it is? I think? Stunned or just made describe my feelings. I mean when you think about this is the worst health crisis in over one hundred years to strike the United States in the midst of that the proposals of the trump administration and their actions would raise rates for six million people on Medicare make medical care more expensive and would take away all else air from about twenty million Americans and leaving them with the option of either or going medical care in this terrible health crisis in or going badly Internet. The president has been saying since the campaign really that he wanted to replace the America the the ACA with something that was better less expensive and would still cover pre existing conditions. We haven't seen that yet. Though in the computer world we used to call it vaporware. No in there. The options that they did float certainly were nowhere near as comprehensive as Franson says Medicaid expansion Over seventeen million low income Americans got pretty good. Health care through Medicaid expansion in the options they were proposing. Were far less comprehensive. Because they simply didn't funded as well. Also they allowed insurance companies under bad act to go ahead in a issue policies which are white limited it might have limitations on. Pre existing conditions they might have limits on annual or lifetime expenditures for healthcare. So the options that they tried to substitute unsuccessfully. I'm happy to say. Were either far less the comprehensive or a covered far less people some of the ripple effect of repealing the ACA. It seems as though the that hospitals which are already struggling financially as a result of the pandemic be hurting even more because they would lose so many of the accounts that actually pay their bills that have a lot more unpaid services in the emergency room. That's exactly right. And that's that's one of the reasons why this would cause a rate increase because under the ACA. A lot of low income people got really good coverage under Medicaid in the service and medical care was eight four by the government to the hospitals in return. The hospitals agreed to give all Medicare recipients a cut in the cost which translated into lower premiums. Well if you go back on that deal if you abolish the Medicaid expansion now. The hospitals have got to cover the cost of low income care and and they won't do it as well. That's some care though they'll provide and then they won't give discounts anymore to all the rest of the Medicare recipients so we'll all get a rating agrees. We've also got the issue of the cost of prescription drugs going up especially with the new drugs. The the one that's being developed right down in Kalamazoo at adviser among others. They basically can charge whatever they want and with the donut hole. It could get really expensive real fast. The people tend to forget that back in the old days before two thousand ten when the affordable care act was passed if you spent back then. A few thousand dollars on Drug costs and you were up to that point. The Medicare part D paid about seventy five percent. Eight one eight five within you a hundred percent of the next two to three thousand dollars before your coverage kicked in again will thanks to the ACA that entire Donut. Hole as this year has been eliminated. So many medicare par deed as the same percentage all the way up out to almost six thousand dollars and then it drops much much lower contribution from the enroll e so remit. The donut hole was eliminated. But it would come right back in if you had high drug plus it would cost you thousands of dollars more if you are a Medicare part. D. I don't think a lot of the people who listen to this. Podcast would argue with the concept of universal healthcare. They might argue over the details. But certainly the concept. But what about the general public? What is the polling? The Public Opinion Research. That's been done by. Aarp show terms overall political implications of what the president's doing. I don't have access to the most recent polling data. I know that the program such as the affordable care act. It's interesting at first. People were or a little concerned. In over the years a majority a substantial majority of the public's work this program in thinking is doing good. I certainly remember that polling death so the expansion has one public support the ACA is supported. And I might add the heart of the ACA that eliminated the right of an insurance company to deny coverage for a pre existing condition is extremely popular. But think about this wall in the middle of a pandemic when you might have The the aftermath of an infection or beginning an infection. In if you can't be guaranteed that an insurance company will cover you. You know they need deny coverage to millions of people without the bat is extremely likely in my opinion so the parts of the ACA that really protected people and allowed them to get insurance without being denied are wildly popular. I think I can say. And even the programs like the expansion of Medicaid and all that and a substantial majority of the citizens supporting in talking with the Attorney General about those few days ago. She indicated that she didn't believe this would be a that. This case would be decided by the Supreme Court before the election. Do you still think it's going to be an issue in the campaign. Is this something that. Aarp is going to be talking about right up to November third. Once again I don't speak officially for. Aarp that I think that the protection of seniors and ensuring they are not denied for preexisting conditions is really top of mind. Breyer always and then Defense of the A. C. A. and Medicaid expansion in the exchanges were people who are not quite eligible for Medicaid the global money can go out and buy coverage good coverage and get a subsidy to make ask for that traditionally has been supported by AARP. And I do not see.

"To have Donald. Trump's visit to a mask factory in Arizona accompanied by the guns and roses version of live. And Let die blaring the public address system. It seemed to be the perfect metaphor for trump's mantra wanting to open the economy regardless of the cost in human lives a cost that even he now admits coming up words of one hundred and thirty thousand dead in the first wave live and let die could also be the theme song for the assault rifle wielding gun nuts who infested the capital last month and are threatening to return again this week. There is a move on to ban guns from the Capitol just as there are dozens of other state capitals as well as other state office buildings courtrooms local government offices. It's an interesting dynamic in some inside baseball. The attorney general has sent a letter to the legislature saying yeah the Capitol Commission which is an appointed group of people that basically run the building. They're in charge of the tour guides and things like that but they have the right to banish guns from the building just as they've already banished signs that are on sticks because they can damage the some of the artwork inside the Capitol and John Truscott. Who's the Vice Chair? That committees was formerly governor. Anglers press secretary says not so fast. I don't think that we have that right of. The dynamic is that he used to be business partners. With the Attorney General's public relations director Kelly Ross mckinney and the two of them were on opposite sides of the issues. I it's almost. It's not quite as bad as the situation with Kellyanne Conway and her husband George Conway but there's a little internal fight there that I find very entertaining. I think given the power behind her. That the attorney general side's GonNa win on this thing but the Republicans are very very leery about anything to irritate the gun. People there's even a story on local news that Attorney General Nestle after putting out. This letter has been getting death threats. Which doesn't surprise me at sickens me. But it doesn't surprise me the interesting to one of our state representatives who lives here in Lansing Sarah Anthony who represents most of the city of Lansing when she went to work. She's an African American and when she went to work after the demonstration several of her constituents all African Americans provided escort for carrying semiautomatic weapons. And they were kind of making a point. Sir was widely applauded in the lansing area for the move to demonstrate. Just how crazy this whole situation is and you know I am opposed to open. Carry General I just think it's stupid but when I saw them escorting her. I was just so happy because it was like. You said a demonstration that there's more than one side and a tell you what the the more conservative open carry advocates will say we you know we. We want this right for everybody. I don't think that's the case. There's a difference in how people are treated and there's a difference in how they're perceived if you come from while I'm just going to say it if you're a black person carrying a gun you're going to be perceived differently than a white person carrying a gun and that's just all there is to it won't soon goes for. Joggers and Georgia you know how. How many times are we going to see that those kinds of atrocities the LG had put out a tweet over the last couple of days? I forget when it was about that incident. And it's heartbreaking. How many times are we GONNA DO? Hashtag justice for before stumping changes for these folks you know and this is this is I think one of the things contributing to the increase of firearms on the left. I mean there's you know study after study shows that the left is arming itself. More and more in response to the rights proliferation in general. I don't think more guns and more open carry. I don't think that's a good thing and I'm a I'm a shooter while you know. I'm a member of Gun Club. I mean I don't have a problem with guns. I just don't like open carry and I don't think the proliferation is good but the racism that runs so deep in this country affects everything. You can't be unarmed and you can't be armed and be a black person. In America. This whole thing brings to mind an incident several months ago at the Capitol when another State Representative from Lansing area. Cara hope put a sign on her office. Store declared her office to be a gun free zone and she was ordered by the speaker of the House to take down because she couldn't declare her office to be a gun free zone because I was the Second Amendment Violation. That's going to be the dynamic run into the capital. Yeah and into a certain extent. I understand there are people who believe very firmly that that Second Amendment right is the foundation for all other rights. I think that's I don't agree but again. I think that this is Lee chatfield being informed only by his upbringing and not by any sort of experience in the world certainly not by any sort of compassion or interest in how the other side might see things. It's really interesting to go across the street from the capital. Dewey's to the capital Billy's lightning city hall and to Enter City Hall. You go through a metal detector and the last time I went over to city hall to go over to see the mayor and I had to leave my penknife at the desk. A little two inch pen night. That's on my keychain because that was considered dangerous but if I go to the capital I could walk in there with an air fifteen. I mean you just you look scary Walter. I can understand why that's true. That's true attention would say hold on what my quarantine beard is just freaking people out. I think Sweden last point on this. I think it isn't just about racism mouse. Think it's about which side of the Iran would seen Djaama's drum said something about how Detroit activists were put through metal detectors when they wanted to come in protest something about the Detroit schools. I know that when I went up to the capital during Rick Snyder's administration There was all this you know. Everybody was freaking out over occupy this occupy that and we were treated I felt we were treated quite terribly compared to how we were treated when we would go up there during Granholm Administration so I think that the rights always gonNA find a reason to be afraid of the left. And they're always going to find a reason to allow the right to come in with their weapons. Briefs were filed last week with the US Supreme Court. In a case that was completely repeal. The affordable.

"That state tax revenue collections. In April was down to forty three percent from last year now part of that was delays because they put off the payment deadlines for the INCOME TAX FOR SALES TAX. And all that but even so that is a precipitous drop and the cuts. They're going to have to be made and they're going to need more revenue from someplace if the feds don't come up with a significant bailout. Package for the state's mission is going to have to raise taxes because they simply you'd have to shutdown state government with the kind of cuts. I'd have to make without attackers. Well I just think that again is going to be a ballot initiative to get tax increase. And I understand you know the challenge because the pandemic but I don't see the Whitmer Erkki relationship improving it at all. Do you know. And they've got to live with each other for two. They can live with each other for two more years. Even if the house is flipped in November and you get a democratic house. You're still going to have a Republican Senate until the end of the governor's first term and that tension is going to go on and on and on and on they just clearly adults. They don't like each other. I think it's part of the problem. He is colder drunk with power. He has called her betcha crazy among other things and then he backs off and does it again. The combination of Mike Shuki with his attitude towards the governor and Lee Chatfield the thirty year old Speaker of the House. Or there's just total lack of experience really for the job that he's got right now is a very dangerous combination for the state. What is facing such a critical pair of crises both healthcare and economic. Yeah it really is Lee Chatfield. You know I don't have any reason to really call him bad guy but like you said. He's he's young and. I think that he's inexperienced. Any comes to the job mostly informed by his faith and his Christian school allowing in his ideology and Mike Jerky you know. Anyone who goes out there tells the public. The governor is a dictator of the things. You said before and is comfortable hanging with the homies. Who pushed their way into the capital to yell at people and then turns around and calls jackets. I mean this guy is just not good at the politics and he's not good at policy. I look at him. I almost see Rudy Giuliani inaction than I look at these speaker Lee Chatfield and in some ways I see jared Kushner Oh God daughter of Celtic Kushner to Chatfield. Don't you think jared Kushner has just a tall child from village of the damned turned me. Oh my God oh my chatfield could be that. I don't know he does tweet some pretty awful things okay. People start the memes onto on twitter with that one okay so as we mentioned the impact of the pandemic not just restaurants but many small businesses has been horrific. A new survey from the Small Business Association of Michigan details. The challenges facing the folks who employed about half of all of our workers in the state we talked with the president of S. Bam former. Lieutenant Governor Brian Kelly. Well we asked our members. Oh how confident they were about just survival and we were very disappointed but not terribly surprised with the results that we received about one in seven small businesses. Were not confident that they were going to survive. And I should probably try. Put that into context. You might wonder like how does that compare to a baseline. We don't normally ask in a survey. How confident are you surviving? The next few months. It would make sense too because you know. Small Business. Owners and entrepreneurs tend to be very optimistic. People can do you know I can make it through anything Type of people and And so it would be unusual for business owner to say yeah. I don't think I'M GONNA make it to the next few months so so I think that baseline would be normally pretty close to zero and And so while in seven is a lot and does this sort of thing that would totally change the landscape of our economy especially here in Michigan. Where so many of our art our towns in our communities around the state are built around small businesses and it seems to be like a to cheer depression for Small Businesses. The ones that are being hit. The hardest are the ones with the entry level jobs especially in the hospitality industry. Well I think that the it's the jobs that are that are more intensely. Public facing are the ones that they can't see the horizon right now so if you're a Nannu facturing and you know okay. We're coming back on the next week. This has been really hard but you know I I can see what's what my future holds if you're in the hospitality business or in tourism or personal care like a salon owner or something like that. There's no light at the end of the tunnel yet. There's no indication not even a clue that has been offered yet on whether we're talking about two weeks or two months and so I think that those are businesses that are particularly Pessimistic right now about their chances because the uncertainty is at a maximum one of the things we know from the survey data. Is that even? If the governor were to flip the switch in all businesses were to reopen tomorrow. The customers might not be there. Well we don't know how customers will react and we know that it's going to be different so So while we did specifically ask. When do you think you should I I suspect that many Philip. They their type of business. They could safely open up if if allowed. But that doesn't mean that consumer habits are going to return to any sort of normal looking level anytime soon. So it's a big question mark but What one thing that I think is the case especially as we look at the attitudes of the small business owners themselves that the further you get outside of Southeast Michigan. The higher degree of confidence is that there is still a market out there that people would patronize these businesses. If they are allowed to to operate we know that the pandemic started out in the Detroit area in the Detroit area was hit very hard but it seems like that it's moving west north right now and that attitudes may change as things get worse out. State. Well actually. I don't think that is what the data shows. I know that in West Michigan for example. There's a now that the testing is very robust. They feel like for the first time. They have a good idea of what the prevalence has been all along. But if you if you track that along with hospital activity an same is true for northern. Michigan is see that it's nearly nonexistent in northern Michigan. And it's been Plateaued for some time in West Michigan. So even though you've seen the case loads rise there has not been a lagging impact on hospital admissions. Which tells you that That it's the the prevalence of the disease has been identified more robustly but does not appear to have been growing so So I I don't know I mean you always have to be careful and you have to monitor these things closely But I I know that especially in In the emissions upper peninsula and even in the traverse city area. I think they've had Long periods of time now where they have Very few or even zero active cases of course the federal government has passed the payroll protection program which very rocky rollout and a lot of the money did go to larger businesses. Initially how those working out for your members across the State. I believe it is working. There are to the extent that that restaurants for example can survive on on just takeout activity. I think the paycheck protection program made that possible. That's one industry example but really across the board we saw Most businesses take advantage of this opportunity and And so I I think it gives them a shot at making it through. What is hopefully the deepest part of the Valley? But it's it's difficult to to S- to say because In in terms of what the long-term prospects are so I heard some people call it a stimulus. I don't think it's a stimulus as much as the survival package. And so it. Just it just gives you a shot at seeing the other side of the valley and then In then you have to reevaluate and see where things are at that point but it has. I think it's been the most effective tool for small business anybody's come up with so far In the other thing I'll say is that round two has gone much much better than round one round one The average loan size was Was about Almost three hundred thousand dollars. And when you consider that that's based just onto an APP months of payroll that would that would tell you that it was. It was the larger small businesses. They got That got the money in the first round in the second round. That average loan size The first week it started out with about ninety thousand but then it's gone down Each day since then and so that tells me that it's getting much much deeper into truly small businesses and in debt to me. That's very good news. Because that's where I think. The highest risk of failure lies. When you talk with the governor. What do you say? What are you advising Governor Whitman to do? And dealing with this pandemic will I is to Is to is to try and show as much as you can about what the future will hold giving people some kind of an indication of what the time horizon looks like. You always have to put qualifiers on it because you know the information can change but more of an indication about what requirements are going to be is. Is you decide on. I don't think this is an example. Just because restaurants can't go into business for sit down dining if they have regulations in mind that are going to be required. Why not share those now so that people can start working at how they need to change their business models or how they deliver their products and services in order to to To meet those requirements of future so I think just more information and sharing would be would be helpful in part of that is Some I hesitate to use the word psychological. Because you know I'm not I'm not a doctor but The the idea of giving people something they can control they can get ready. They can start working toward. I think that that would send a strong message. Maybe provide people a little bit of hope. That might be feeling hopeless right now. You ran for governor of course yourself in two thousand eighteen when you go home at night. You're talking with your wife or you're just sitting there thinking to yourself dealing with about well. If I were elected governor what would I be doing? I have thought about that You know I've been. I've thought about it in a lot of different ways. I know that when you're governor you have access to a lot more information. That's kind of generally out there and available. I try to keep that in mind because I know Governor. Whitmer has access to more information that I have being on the outside now but I also pay close attention to what's happening around the country as well and In in soy best practices in some comfort that can come from looking at what our neighbors and what other states are doing. And what's working well and what hasn't worked as well. You have the benefit of hindsight and in those cases to compare and contrast different aspects of actions that are taken. But you know it's difficult to say because it's not. It's hypothetical but as I look across the country. I think there's a Lotta good examples support from Brian. Kelly thank you so much for joining us on the PODCAST..

"Public officials had government accountable and assists in the promotion of progressive ideas.

Lawmakers that it is possible to ban firearms from the state capital but the commission in charge says maybe not and she joined with other democratic attorneys general and opposing the Republican effort to completely repeal the affordable care act will talk with a former president of AARP about what repealing obamacare during a pandemic means for all of us and we'll have our usual assorted political notes including the Lawsuit Legislative Republicans filed to strip the governor of her ability to lead effectively in an emergency. We begin though Christine with the reopening of Michigan Governor Whitman. Six step timeline for a return to something approaching normalcy. What is this step time? Line all like you said. There are six steps to the Michigan Safe Star Plan and they are progressive in nature. So they build on each other and each one has a pandemic related benchmark that has to be met before we move to the next and it should be noted that these benchmarks can also be used to move back to an earlier step if we start to see increased risk. The first two steps are uncontrolled growth and persistent spread and those seem to be behind us right now. We're currently in step three. Which means that. We've observed a decline in case growth and each step also has a course of action defined with it and in this case in step three. The course of action is continued social distancing continues to face basques and no gatherings there's also of course of action for businesses. We can begin to open lower risk businesses that can adhere to strict workplace safety measures. So in this case we're talking about construction and manufacturing real estate out door. Work that kind of thing. The benchmark specifically that we have in this step if we want to step four is a combination of factors relating to healthcare system capacity the status of our testing. Contact tracing and containment protocols and then of course we also need to see a sharp decline in cases and death and all of that is associated with step three and each step has all of that kind of information associated. With as. I'll be discussing with Brian. Kelly a little bit later. These steps are really important. Not just businesses can reopen but so that customers will show up. You can have open doors but nobody shows up. It's not gonna be any good and especially for businesses where there's high interaction direct interaction between customers and the business is going to be critical that each step he met Every survey I've seen shows governor getting overwhelming support for her cautious. Approach this even though you've got the White House on the other side and you've got a very vocal minority some of them of course as we've discussed carrying firearms to the capital to make their point but it seems to me like the governor's she is. I think rightly concerned about that second wave. I saw something in the news this morning. We're recording on Sunday and I saw on the news this morning. They're starting to have a second wave now in South Korea in Japan and in Hong Kong. They thought they had elect at now. It is beginning to start again and that is what would be devastating for Michigan's economy. Can you imagine opening up the auto plants and going through all of that opening businesses and two weeks later having to shut everything down again one of the things she mentioned? You can link to this document so you can take throughout the details but one of the things that is in that document is how risk is assessed and it's a of factors. It's not just one thing. So even if far cases went down if we have observed that our healthcare system would not be able to handle a surge cases. Then we would still be considered high-risk so I don't know exactly how South Korea and these other places have managed their recovery out if the pandemic and then ended up in a second wave but I think that this one is really prepared with a lot of caution and forethought like we mentioned at six steps. Four six are improving containing and post pandemic. They all have at information about what we think we need to do to continue to be safe. And what businesses can start to reopen and what activities can resume. It's interesting document and it has some nice guideline Hopefully people will find it helpful. What are the importance of sodas now been taken to? The state has launched. Its contact tracing program. I got off to a rocky start because the contract was awarded to a company that was capable of doing it but had political ties which pissed off the Republicans said they go through the process again. And now it has been over actually. I think it's to a subsidiary of rock financial. And they're going to start doing the contact tracing but we've got a good demonstration of how important this is even though the White House says the testing and contact tracing. Isn't that big a deal? The reality is even in the White House. Which has daily testing of key staff has contact tracing that? You can't believe want for crying. I'll loud Dr Falcons now in quarantine because of the contact tracing. He's been exposed at the White House. He's not ill but he's been exposed to it. They're demonstrating at the White House. How important this is yet. They're ton the rest of the nation You can go back to work. You don't need this and I think that's what the governor really wants to see more than anything is to have a very vibrant and very effective testing and contact tracing program that's talked about in the In the same star plan as About how important it is that that testing program be robust. Nba Stable and accessible. So there's a there's a lot of things draw draw us in there and it. It's funny that you mentioned the White House because I think that almost every every headline that comes out of the White House these days actually You can contrast her actions with that at it makes her look good. What are the industries? I wanted to commend as one of the is probably the industry. The hit the hardest in Michigan in the restaurant industry rather than just complain and say. Hey you're killing US governor with shut down. They have a positive approach to it. The Michigan Restaurant Association has put a twenty eight page. Detailed game plan that has members could use that would be the guideline for reopening restaurants submitted it to the states. Hey let's talk about this. This makes sense for getting our industry back into gear. I'm not going to get into the details of what they're proposing because I'm not I've got the expertise but I liked the approach. It's it's a cooperative approach recognized that we have a real problem and we need a real solution. They seemed to be specific enough to have credibility to come to the table. And say this is what we think is safe now. These people and I worked in restaurants for just way too many years and I feel really comfortable saying that most restaurant owners and managers understand how personal of a service. They're providing to people when you're making somebody's food that's a very personal service. You have to take it seriously but I also know that when you get slammed at lunchtime shortcuts data. There has to be some way for them to take this further. I think to show the public that yes. You can have confidence in us that we're going to keep our promises but this is a great first step by them. I really like how they put it together and just came forward and said. Here's here's what we're willing to do. It's an investment to while if you look at how much they're willing to invest not just in equipment but in training and in extra extra Labor that it takes to do these things. There'd be religious. Hey look at. This could be hard. We're willing to do what's hard because we've got to do what's right. Meanwhile at the Capitol we have our good friends in the legislature and they've got a different attitude towards all which is basically. Let's go to court because we don't like how the governor's treating us. Yeah there. Where do you start? One of the things that really stands out to me is that Mike Shirke goes on and on about the number one priority. Being to limit the governor's powers it's more of a political move than anything else. I don't think that you really get anything out of doing that. Because things are moving quickly enough that by the time this comes to fruition at you won't need to limit anything it's GonNa take a long time to go through the court system plus the judge that has been handed his case. The Stevens had the pleasure of working with her many many years ago. When I was working at the Bar Michigan she was on our board of directors along with the person who was then the wind county council whether the name of Jennifer Granholm. And that's where they got to know each other and I'll tell you cynthia. Stevens is no bullshit judge. She is not going to put up with any political game. She's been around for a long time. She started as a Wayne Circuit judge and then was elevated to the Court of Appeals by Governor Granholm. And she is going to listen to this case and she's going to be very thoughtful about it. I suspect by the time it gets to the State Supreme Court which it will. We're going to be in a completely different world by them. We may have a vaccine by the time it gets to the Supreme Court I can easily see the supreme court putting this thing off so that by the time it gets to them as mood and they don't have to deal with it. I agree I think I don't think it matters for the here. And now there are a couple of other significant things though. I think it was senator. Tom Barrett. Who has saying he wouldn't encourage any sort of electromagnetic signatures to help. Get the issue on the ballot. Because they're looking at a petition. Drive and one of the things mentioned was that a gay rights group was trying to do that. He wouldn't support that. I just thought that was kind of interesting. And the idea from the Senate Majority Leader. Shuki that they're going to do a petition drive to put this on the ballot first of all if they did get it on the ballot they'd lose I'd secondly I know from personal experience saying you're going to do a petition drive and actually making it happen or two different things. It is a very difficult thing to do. And during a pandemic right now it is impossible to do unless you do a lot chronic signatures and they don't even have time under state law right now. They have until next week to turn the signatures to get it on the ballot this year. So that's not going to happen. Constitutional AMENDMENT THEY. WanNa do it through that route they would have to have all the signatures in by the first week in July. And you're not going to collect a half million signatures electronically or any other way by July. When you start right now. The whole thing is just a lot of political posturing as far as I can see but make sure you happy. My biggest concern is will all of this bad blood carry over into dealing with the budgetary crisis that the state is facing? There is a story Earlier this week..

"Not really sure but i think some of that is our media consumption habits the objective reality of a whole bunch of different risks of mortality and kidnapping and injury are actually much much reduced over the last many decades and yet people's perception of these catastrophic events is increased because we consume media of some bad thing that happened far away in a way that we wouldn't have done in the past and one of the unfortunate consequences that there are many unfortunate consequences but one of them is we think if you just sit still and don't move and become passive you'll be safer and that isn't really true there's a whole bunch of data i i talk a lot in the book about celebrating scar tissue but there's a bunch of data that says that helicopter parenting actually yields increased injuries for a lot of kids if your kids don't learn how to fall as a three and four and a fiveyearold it turns out when they're a ten year old kid and especially ten year old boys they're gonna jump off a fence or roof it's inevitable if they didn't learn how to fall before they're far more likely to get a neck injury because they didn't go through the little stabs and bruises and stitches that came earlier and so we need to do a much better job of telling our kids that they're resilient to encouraging them to persevere and frankly having big parties when they get stitches but don't actually end up with the real lasting neck injury as the fight there are three car crashes in every teenagers life just be glad when they're just actually fenderbender us that's thank you my last question your public intellectual now important book about american you're in american senator what is your biggest john calley crisis going to consume your day and your week and it and we talked about it earlier will come back to it and you know that the media would love to find you and talk about it what is your job what is best think of as his job well first of all we all have plural colleagues so we've got lots of different identities and responsibilities and my first job is to be a great data.
