Mnuchin rejects renewal of some Fed emergency loan programs
"Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has sought the return of unused funds from the feds emergency landing facilities, but the central bank pushed back, They said the program served a vital role pollution and a little too. Fed chair Jerome Powell sort a 90 Day extension for just four of the central bank's emergency landing programs. Also said the Fed should return $455 billion to the Treasury so Congress can spend the money elsewhere. Bloomberg's Chris Condon says that doesn't make sense. This money was never scored against the U. S by the Congressional Budget Office because it is always expected that this money will revert back to the Treasury. In fact, to the budget, it's not money to be spent out its support lending. The fits of the emergency facility should continue to serve their important role as a backstop for the economy. All emergency programs created by the cares act will expire at the end of the year.

Entire yearly economy. That's because of the massive amounts of spending we're doing right now about the pandemic and then in later years if interest rates go up, that could start to pile on top of the debt for now though the Federal Reserve which sets interest rates has said they will keep them near zero for at least the next three years.

U.S. National Debt on Track to Surpass Size of Economy
"The US has spent trillions of dollars fighting the coronavirus pandemic. All of that spending is pushing the nation towards a new milestone next fiscal year the Congressional Budget Office. Says US government debt is expected to exceed the size of the economy for the first time since World War. Two K. Davidson covers economic policy for the Wall Street Journal Hi Kate thanks for joining me Hi emery. Thanks for having me. So put this in context for us the last time the national debt was this high was World War Two, very different times in our history but these periods actually have a lot in common when it comes to national debt. That's right. The debt has been rising this spring in part because policymakers have even said, they view this moment as as a battle as almost a war against US global pandemic, they've spent trillions to try to cushion the economy from the negative effects who has businesses have closed down. Millions of people are out of work. They've approved a ton of money to get people enhanced unemployment. Benefits stimulus checks, emergency loans, and then also, of course, things like vaccine research and aid for hospitals. So all of that is going towards fighting would they do as this threat that's on on par with what we experienced during wartime. So the vast majority of this spending was, as you say to combat the coronavirus, can you detail some of the largest expenditures under those efforts? So the the? Biggest factors were, yes. All these stimulus measures I would say in the big ones were the the stimulus checks that went out. Remember most Americans got a twelve hundred dollars per person checks and and five hundred dollars for dependent children that was several hundred billion dollars. Congress also devoted a ton of money to the paycheck protection program. Those are those emergency loans for small businesses. That was another huge component between two bills. It was over five, hundred, billion dollars I think about six, hundred, billion actually, and then the third one is enhanced unemployment benefits. Stra six hundred dollar weekly checks that people have been getting on top of regular unemployment benefits. Those of course expired at end of July so that spending is coming down a little bit but all of those were. Big, pieces of this overall efforts to help the economy right now. Now, Congress is still debating whether to provide additional stimulus relief. How does the nation's debt load now play into these discussions among lawmakers? Well, I think it's it seems to be an important. Although both sides will sort of point fingers over whether these concerns are genuine Republicans have cited rising debt certainly is a big concern. A reason to be cautious about borrowing more Democrats are saying you know we we need to borrow now to protect the economy and it's worth it to take on more debt. If you're making sure that you're protecting economic growth on because leaving millions of people out of work at they're losing their homes businesses or closing can have long term negative effects on the economy. So they're saying it's worth it right. Now, and some of them are also pointing out that you know Republicans approved a very large tax cut a couple years ago that has constrained revenues and definitely both sides have approved big spending increases in recent years. So there's plenty of blame to go around but I think right now most people in most economists are saying debt should not be the top concern. So some some Republicans have acknowledged even some in the administration are saying look we we can't afford this right now especially, because interest rates are so low and we should do more. Right, and you spoke to some economists who said that despite the big economic contraction in the second quarter, this could have been much worse without some of the fiscal support detailed. That's right and we can see that in the data there are some some groups that break this down they look at the contributions of federal spending to overall GDP and right there was a a big drop off in the second quarter but we saw that fiscal stimulus spending by the federal government actually contributed but had a very positive effect in in other words supported supported economic output and made sure that it wasn't even worse. So you know just because of the way that. GDP is calculated and that's that's fairly typical during a recession. We see governments come in and do it the question right now as well. How much more support is the economy really need and I, think some people are worried that there. We could see because of these debt concerns we could see a situation where what we saw after the last recession where some people argue Congress pulled back on this support to quickly they pulled back too soon and that just really slowed the recovery. So so some folks are saying look don't make that mistake this time around yes. Debt is very high but we we can afford it. There's still big demand for US

U.S. Unemployment Rate Fell to 11.1% in June
"The president wasted no time heading to the cameras to the record jobs gain in June. There's not been anything like this record setting shattering all expectations, our economy is roaring back. It's coming back extremely strong. These are all historic numbers. A record never had a number like that an all time high think of that that's the largest increase in the history of our country. That's a tremendous number a phenomenal number so these are numbers that are not numbers. Of, the presidents would have. This has been a tremendous success. We've done an incredible job we've done a historic thing likes of which nobody has ever seen before in my opinion. Donald? Trump got to use all the superlatives today talking about the job number, but it's important to look deeper into those numbers. CNBC points out one big contributor to the decline in the jobless rate was those returning to work from temporary layoffs? This comes as a new report from the Congressional Budget Office that says the unemployment rate is expected to stay above pre pandemic levels through. Through the end of twenty thirty worth US more, we welcome to the broadcast policeman senior economics reporter with our sister network CNBC. In an old friend of Mine Steve. Great to see you. Thank you for being with us. I mean it kind of was humor listening to the president as I said us all the superlatives, because there's a big piece of context here these are. These are jobs in many cases that people were not working at. As opposed to the creation of new jobs. These aren't jobs created and what the president has missing. There is the historic job losses that happened just a couple of months ago. That were multiples of the jobs that have been brought back in fact alley. I think the best way to think about this. As it was really a bittersweet number, the president was right. It was several times. It was just about double the expectation for point million. It was indeed a record, but let's just do the math. We've lost twenty two million jobs since the corona virus hit the US economy. We brought back seven. Seven and a half million, so everybody can do the math at home. That's fourteen and a half. Million jobs still not return. We brought back about a third. It's a bit quicker, but the other bittersweet part about this thing Ali is that with these renewed shutdowns? You have two things going on. You could have businesses that have shut down and won't we open now? Because of these new infections, but you have businesses that didn't even close before because those places were not affected by the virus, and those workers unfortunately could join the ranks of the unemployed. Let's talk about the more important thing that people like you. And I think about, and that is structurally what has happened to the job market? How much has been destroyed? That won't come back when we return to some version of normal the the the the congressional. Budget Office talks about not getting back to these particularly low unemployment rates that we were at before coronavirus until twenty thirty. That seems uniquely pessimistic, a lot of people talking about two to three to four years. How what does that look like long term return to normal? The best forecast I've seen have been my two or three years. I think that the CBO is extremely pessimistic. But we're looking for Ali is something that economists are now calling scarring in other words we've we had a lot of people. Go on temporarily. A lot will come back, but for some of these places the business may not be there anymore. The job may not be there anymore. On the plus side, there may be new jobs if people continue to get more stuff online rather than in retail stores, but. But some of those retail stores they may never reopened some of the restaurants. They can't survive at fifty percent capacity until we go back to one hundred percents of there's going to be scarring the economy. The extent of which I think the CBO may be too pessimistic, but the idea that we're going back to the way. It was a couple months ago. In short, order is almost certainly to optimistic. Stevens. I know it's something you think about it. Because I know you talked about it a lot of CNBC. How do you reconcile the record stock market performance? We're in very strong territory of Martian popped into earth and looked at the stock market. They'd say all our problems are over. Well it's something that you know. If I had another eyebrow I'd raise that up, but and if I could raise them higher than my forehead. I would do that, too. It's a curious thing to watch. There is an awful lot of the liquidity from the Federal Reserve. In the system. Interest rates are very low. If you're looking to have a return on your money, you can't do it in the charter market. You've gotta go into stocks I think that's one thing. I think there's a belief among some among many investors right now that the economy will return something normal in short order in a six month or one year timeframe. So I think those two things kind of combine the other thing Ali is if you look certain stocks have done very well and pushed up these indices, but some of the stocks and some of the industries that we've been talking about. Have not done well ahead of not come back, so so the market is correctly I. think discounting that and this changed economy that we're gonNA half example with the airline. Airline, so it is curious to watch this market think that things are going to get better as quickly as I think. The market's a little bit optimistic when it comes to discounting the uncertainty of this virus, and as you know Ali, the Fed has been all over this idea saying, wait a second. We don't know if this thing's GonNa come back and I think they've been proven right on that score.
Consumer Confidence Rising After Deep Plunge In April
"Learned this morning from the good people at the Conference Board Business Research Group. We learned that consumer confidence in this economy is up of this month after tanking in April the reaction to that good news because it is good news prompted this reaction from White House economic adviser Larry cudlow on Fox News. This morning. The third quarter could be the fastest growing quarter in. Us history. The whole second half is going to be very strong and here comes the reality check on their reaction to that good news first of all let us remember. We are in the second quarter right now. April may June where the percentage decline in Gross Domestic Product is expected to be epic worst ever retail sales. Were down last month. The unemployment rate is upward. Hasn't been since the Great Depression and they're still. Oh so much uncertainty about what's going to happen next now. Why am I saying? This economists. Megan Green a senior fellow at Harvard's Kennedy School helps us out with that. For example if you say An economy is running at a level of ten. It's producing ten things. Let's say and there's a fifty percent decline then that brings it down to five okay but then and let's say the next month. Actually things go really well. And you've got a fifty percent increase. Sounds great right. It's from a lower numbers so that doesn't bring you back up to ten at actually only brings you back up to seven point five. So the percentage changes can be really misleading. Mr Kudlow this morning it has to be pointed out and as you said is talking about Q. Three July August and September. So I think that as the economy opens up we should see the economic data improve and depending on how you're looking at that data it will either improve a little or it will improve a lot for instance. The Congressional Budget Office figures. There will be a better than five percent increase. Gdp growth in that third quarter. Mr Kudlow was talking about but to review a lot of that. Depends on what you're comparing it to now. Why are we telling you this? I realized that's the second time we've asked this. But this matters that third quarter. Gdp number is going to come out just five days before the election. I think the Republicans will come out and say look we've got the best GDP data ever And we've got the best job state at ever looking at percentage changes in. They'll be right actually. Technically that's true but at the same time the Democrats will be saying we'll but we're still really far below. We were before this crisis even started. And there's a lot of room for improvement and they'll also be right and show. I think people will be getting these mixed messages on what the state of the economy is in. Actually both of them will be correct. You just need to learn how to read the data at understand what it all means

At the top of the hour. More Washington today. Now, more of our conversation this morning on the Washington journal, and we talked about the cost of the government shutdown with shy. Other bipartisan policies. Rebate, wisconsin. Bob is Republican good morning. Morning guys. I just have a couple of questions I had a couple of Hondurans who took my job would they send all their money home? Is there a way that we can tack that for the wall or reporters Curie number two has the CBO ever been right? That's just I don't know. I don't have the answer for anything. Thank you. Good question. So I I would expect that those workers get taxed on their income already through income taxes or payroll taxes. Obviously it depends on their employment situation. Whether they're reporting their earnings as all Americans everyone living in America is required to do. But they should be paying income taxes on those earnings that they have on the second question this. The Congressional Budget Office is rarely right to the decimal point. And that's because there's a lot of uncertainty in all of these projections that they make they emphasized throughout the reports that uncertainty and that they are not going to ever hit it right on the Mark. But they are considered the best forecaster that we have for government spending and taxes that we are expected to take in as well as a pretty good forecaster of economic factors that doesn't mean that they're going to predict when the next recession is going to happen. Very few people are able to do that certainly that's not their expertise. But they do give a very, balanced and neutral sense of where we are headed as a country. In fact, the scenario that they paint. As a baseline, meaning without any expert expected changes is almost an optimistic scenario in the sense that they are instructed as to how they score all of the programs in the federal government and the taxes that are taken in, and they have to expect the congress is not going to make changes to those programs when they make what's called a baseline. They also print what's called an alternative fiscal scenario, which I would call a more realistic scenario of what is likely to happen. So for example, the tax cuts that were passed the year before last many of those are expected to expire in twenty twenty five and the alternative scenario, the more realistic scenario in my mind shows that those will be extended into the future if we ever reached that point, and they base that in part on past example, where we had tax cuts that were large broad base that were on the borderline of expiring back in two thousand ten all of them got extended for two more years. So twenty twelve most of them got extended after that. It's very hard to get temper. But long lasting and broad-based tax cuts. That are set to expire allowing them to expire. So those are the types of changes they make to their baseline to try to make a realistic projection of where the budget is going in the future. We've talked a lot today today about the February fifteenth deadline coming up for that conference committee to come up with some sort of deal on border security, but look ahead to another deadline March second is when the debt limit is set to be reinstated. Remind us why it was suspended the debt. Limit is what restrains the federal government from borrowing further to fund its operations as we talked about. There's a large gap right now between the spending we're doing and the revenues were doing. So it does need to continue borrowing on the order of about nine hundred billion and growing per year the federal debt limit was suspended as part of a budget deal. I believe a little over a year ago about a year ago now to come back into effect on March second, and the reason they do that was to give to acknowledge that we have spending that Alpes. Our revenue for another period of time. But then it comes back into effect. So that congress has decided they want to reevaluate that decision and decide whether we should allow the government to borrow more. What's important to recognize that the borrowing is just the result of spending and taxing decisions that congress and the president have already made so not allowing us to pay. The bills is a very ineffective way to run the government to say that we owe this money, we owe this debt because we borrowed and then we're not going to be able to either pay the interest on it or borrow more to pay the contractors or businesses were providing goods and services to the federal government or send out checks to Americans all across the country. It's expected to come back into effect on March second the actual quote unquote deadline where something catastrophic could happen. If action isn't taken probably won't happen as we project at the bipartisan policy center until the summer of the fall, we have more resources on the website at the bipartisan policy center, the people can go to to find out more about development. It's by partisan policy dot ORG time for a few more calls, which I marines waiting in Greenville, Mississippi, a democrat good. Morning. Good morning. I just had a statement. I wanted to make while everybody is distracted. I feel and focused on those handful of people that are coming across the border to work a lot of kinda minimal labor jobs. What is being done or what about those that you speak to the legal immigrants that you speak to the telephones every day they worked for the fortune five hundred companies major insurance companies credit card companies and all these fortune five who's got these big tax cuts. But you can't hardly order pizza now without someone picking up, and what Trump called is s whole countries. And I wanted to just kind of make that statement concerning that. Why why do you think they're illegal immigrants when you talk to them on the phone because they don't because they're in another country. They are not a part of this country. They're picking up overseas. So they are not a citizen of the United States. So you don't think companies should be able to have call centers overseas. I mean, there's jobs. They're complaining about the ones just walking across on foot to come work jobs. But because they're are picking up all phones overseas, and they are not a legal immigrants of the United States. I would consider them as illegal immigrants, but just happened to work for fortune five hundred companies picking up a phone. I don't see the difference. You can explain it to me. Cycads any thoughts? Well, there are call centers that these companies have where they employ people overseas to serve some of the functions of their businesses that simply comes from the fact that labour costs overseas are often cheaper than they are here in the United States. There are policies that we can try to put into place in terms of taxes or investments that we make that try to make our economy more competitive in our labor force more competitive, but it is difficult when you're looking at other countries overseas that just overall have much lower costs of living and wages to make ourselves competitive with those when those options are available. So there are certain positions where? That need to be filled where it's almost impossible to make US workers competitive with those workers overseas because you'd effectively be having to pay them significantly below minimum wage in the United States for one more. Call been waiting in Florida Republican good morning. Good morning. Go ahead, sir. About the wall. You know, I think we should have the wall. I think we need the wall. Trump ran on building. The wall is in. He got elected for. And as far as Democrats go. I think there's probably a few Democrats that would go along with the wall. But then you got Pelosi with a sense of all the way around her house, and she won't even give a dollar Bill to the wall. And if you took everything that we cost cost us for all I'm illegally inside are here, taking your they? They get mad because they separate the baby they did hospitalization. They get food. And they they get all this. If you just took one half of that money and spend it on the wall, you would have that wall. And then some and you would have less expenses on them a mental on the immigrants being here on food and housing and everything else and are not even citizens the reading the Democrats want them in there. So they can get the votes, and that's what Pelosi and Pelosi so mad because Trump got in that she's not going to give in or nothing and why. Why does she have a wall around her house got so shack, we get this statement a lot on what legal immigrants are getting in the United States in terms of benefits. Have you done research on that? Can you talk a little bit about that? That's not my primary area of expertise. There is there are some programs that are available to even people who are not here legally, certainly many government programs that are accessible to all Americans things like social security. They are not eligible for. But I think to some extent in terms of the spending on those elements distracts us from the bigger picture, which is that we have a rapidly increasing federal debt the interest that we pay on that debt is actually going to exceed the spending that we do as a federal government on the Medicaid program for all low income Americans across the country in several years, and then the entire spending that we do on the defense department by twenty twenty five that's pretty astounding that we're going to be paying more in interest costs overseas talk about payments that go to overseas countries than we are. Or to spending on our department of defense, which protects the American people we need to figure out how we're going to address those problems going into the future with things like entitlement reform, reforming social security reforming the major healthcare programs that doesn't mean they need to go away. That doesn't mean they need to be overhauled..

"NPR news Mayan silver in Milwaukee. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that you will lose three billion dollars from the partial federal government shutdown. The office says individual businesses and workers will suffer especially those who lost pay during the five week hiatus. President Trump's economic adviser. Larry cudlow rejected the CBO report. He says that it is a small fraction of the twenty trillion. Dollar US economy. You're listening to NPR news from Washington. This is WNYC from New York. I'm Richard Hake. Good morning. It's eight oh, four twenty nine degrees. Overcast, we do expect some rain, and then some snow later tonight. An estimated ten thousand immigration cases in New York had been delayed due to the partial federal government shutdown rescheduling those cases can be especially stressful for immigrants seeking asylum. But as WNYC's Beth Fertig says a delay case could be an advantage for other immigrants who had long odds of winning in court if their trials get delayed until let's say twenty twenty or later there may be a new president with new immigration policies. So that could help someone who has a difficult case now because of the Trump administration's policies those include immigrants hoping to win asylum based on claims they fled domestic violence or gangs in their native countries. Two scenarios that the current administration does not consider grounds for asylum. Advocates say it shouldn't be just high-profile refugees who get waivers from the Trump travel ban three act. Is in New York player among the well publicized applicants from van countries who've been led into the US, but Betsy Fisher from the international refugee assistance project says many lesser known people have been turned away in an opaque process. You shouldn't have to have celebrity to be free from discrimination that that shouldn't be part of the process, and that level of arbitrariness really shows how this ban is a mockery of the rule of law. Fischer says the Trump administration hasn't explained how people can apply and hasn't disclosed how many have been leading in or turned away after more than a decade of trying advocates for survivors of childhood sexual abuse succeeded in getting a Bill passed in Albany. That'll make it easier for victims to seek Justice the child victims act passed the democrat controlled Senate and assembly yesterday, the daily news Albany bureau chief can love it says for years groups, including the Catholic church in the boy scouts of America. Pressured members of both parties to block the Bill there were powerful interest groups who were against this. And and I think that played a huge role and that said. You know, a lot of victims. Let's be honest. They can't afford high-powered lobbyists. The measure now goes to governor Cuomo who said he intends to sign him. The New York legislature is set to expand the state's gun control laws today. At least eight bills are expected to pass the democrat controlled assembly and Senate include measures like a ban on bump stocks longer waiting periods for some buyers and a law permitting. Authorities to confiscate a household firearms. If someone living there is deemed to be a threat. New York City council speaker Cory Johnson might be interested in running for mayor after all. And now, he's making sure the optics of his fundraising records, right? The democrat from Chelsea said yesterday that he's no longer accepting donations over two hundred fifty dollars and no money at all from real estate, developers lobbyists or corporate political action committees. If I decide to run if for some reason it worked out for me. No one's going to have a huge level of influence with me. The mayoral election is in the fall of twenty twenty one. We do expect rain later today..

"This is a big deal. Now, I saw that. Mark PO can he Pramilla Giac pallor the co chairs of the progressive caucus, and he issued a statement saying that they were going to vote for the rules package. And here's his quote, he said we have been concerned about pay go for months and have had numerous conversations with rules chairman Jim McGovern and house leadership about these concerns. We all agree that the real problem with pay go exists in the statute that requires it that is why we'll be introducing legislation in the one hundred sixteenth congress to end pay go. In the meantime, chairman McGovern and house leadership have committed to us that pay go will not be an impediment to advancing key progressive priorities and one hundred sixteenth congress with the assurances that pay. Go can be waived we do plan to vote for the house rules package and proceed with legislation to fix the statute. My first impression was I how naive can they be that what they're going to assure them that the wave the provisions why pass it if it's going to be waived it is seek a little surf. History lesson given okay. Pelosi as soon as she comes in two thousand seven institutes this rule for go which is substantially similar to what is is going to be in the rules for tomorrow. It it says that yeah, you can waive it. If there's an emergency exemption, so like the stimulus package passed obviously spent money, but that was given an emergency exemption from the pig. Oh, okay. So so that thing that sort of thing has happened before? But you know, it's at the discretion of the leader to to say whether something's an emergency or not right in twenty ten under Nancy, Pelosi's leadership signed by President Obama, a pay goes statute comes into to play a law saying that if congress deficit spins under, the the Congressional Budget Office ledger, you know. What they what they decide is deficit spending. Then automatic cuts suspending have to go into place. Now, this is true. But this can also be waived, and we saw this with the Trump tax cuts. There was some fear that because this was entirely unspent that that, you know, entirely unpaid for that there would have to be some cuts to the budget automatically instituted. But what what Republicans do they passed a law waving statutory, pay go and went forward. So yes, there are ways around sort of everything in congress. But it does beg the question of if if you're just going to put away around it, if you've been assured that this won't be an impediment anything, then why does it exist and the answer to why it exists is that it just gives another lever? To the speaker, and the leadership to you know, kind of block or or priorities that they they don't agree with? I mean, there was an excellent paper put out by Josh givens of the Economic Policy Institute, which explains that the stimulus Packers was probably made smaller because of pig go the healthcare law the subsidies were shrunk probably because of pay go the there was this. Maneuvering that remember the healthcare law passed in twenty ten but it didn't really come into to assistant until twenty fourteen Rafe that was to get around the, but the pay go rule because the spending wouldn't start until four years and even the taxes started right away way to sorta game pay go that contributed to negative impressions of the law. The the the government kind of switch to Australia and starting in twenty. Ten and and givens has this great stat in his paper that says that you know, if we would have spent on public investment at the same levels that we did after recessions in the sixty seventies and eighties. We would have had full employment at a level that we have today back in twenty thirteen. So this stuff has real consequences when you put in these artificial sort of ratchets to say that that we can't respond to crises in particular ways. Or we we we have to abide by this. This idea that the deficit is the most important thing in our political lives. They have it has real consequences for real people. And you know, to to say that oh, well, we can get rid of it whenever we want that Washington doesn't always work that way best laid plans. It's it's. You know and just to be clear..

It's owed on those deferred accounts. Like your 4._0._1._K? So listen, if I gave you a choice between a taxable retirement and want you to write this down tax free doesn't tax free sound. So good. Which would you pick? Well, it's obvious. I'd pick tax free. Under the new tax laws are passed last December. I thought taxes went down. Well, that's true for most middle income retirees. But let's take a look at what's going on in our country right now since January first of two thousand eight. The first of seventy five million. That's a big number. Seventy five million boomers began to start retiring from work. And what are they doing while they're moving onto the nation's retirement programs like social security like Medicare are called entitlement programs. Since two thousand seventeen payroll taxes are not creating enough tax to cover the cost of these sort of payments. It's just simple math add to that the amount of deficit that's growing now. As a result of the tax cuts. So the government's going to have to make this revenue up from other areas, where do you think it's going to come from? Well taxes. Of course, they're going to be higher in the future. Again. This is my opinion need to say that. So entitled to an opinion. Look it up. It's called first amendment. Anyway.

"So on the resource piece three to five percent real growth is a huge dollar figure over a period of years, and we did not take position on where that money should come from. But stepping out of your role as the co chair of this thing, where's that money going to come from? Well, we do address some of the issues that that are raised by the resource question. I if you look at the long-term budget projections of the Congressional Budget Office, the CPO it's very clear. What's driving, the long term deficits, and that is the entitlement programs of Medicare, Medicaid and social security that makes up the bulk of defense is, you know, part of the so-called discretionary budget that the congress gets to to play with. And it's only about twenty five percent of that budget yet it's been bearing under the BCA fifty percent of the of the cuts. Clearly, I think where this money has to come from is some combination of reform of entitlements and revenue and speaking personally, I I'm willing to bear higher tax burden in order to make sure that we can defend the United States. I think it's the first obliga- tion of the that the constitution imposes on the congress, which is to provide for the common. Fence which is part of our title and at the end of the day, and it's part of their sponsor -bility of Lear's the country, both the president and the congress to make the case to the American people. Why that's important. That's important. Exactly. And we talked about that. You know, we spend some time talking about technology, and the fact that the rest of the world has caught up particularly with regard to technologies and they're important to the military. And there's a very interesting line in our report that recommends an quote here pursuing selective economic disintegration with rivals to avoid dangerous dependencies does that mean, what does that look like so one of the things that you know, has become clear in which we delved into as part of our deliberations was the degree to which the supply chain for the major defense contractors who provide the weaponry and the equipment for our soul. Sailors, airmen and marines, the men and women of all of our military services have dependency on in particular on things made in China. This is a consequence of globalization.

"The Congressional Budget Office within just a couple of years that it just the interest payments alone on our data are going to be as much as we spend on the entire Medicaid program by twenty twenty three will be bigger than we spend on the entire defense budget. So really eye opening numbers here goodness. So many of us who might be alarmed by that thinks surely this is a wakeup call. But we've been down this path before though, right? I mean what what could happen. I guess in some of these may be worse case scenarios that are developing here. Yeah. Well, I think that the economic research has showed us that, you know, high high deficits and high high high data courses is not good for the economy over the long run. And this is a big part of the debate that lawmakers were having and and policy wonks or having around the tax cuts last year. You might remember. There was a big debate about tax cuts pay for themselves. And the reason why that was so important is that, you know, the the first of all Republicans are arguing that it was tax cuts. We're going to boost the economy, I think that definitely this year we have seen some of that consumers are spending a lot more that's driving this uptick and economic growth, but the concern from a lot of people was well, you know, we're going to cut taxes we need to cut spending as well because we're going to have lower revenues. You know, they're they're people aren't going to be paying as much as much in taxes seems to make sense. But the argument went well now it's going to generate so much growth. People are going to be making more money. More people are going to be. Working more revenues coming in. And it doesn't look like that's really what's happening. And so essentially what that means is that we had a much higher deficit this year than we did last year. And the government is set to issue a whole lot more get this year in order to get the cash that it needs to on the government operations because we just don't have the same revenue that you would expect to see it in an economy. That's doing this. Well, I mean, essentially revenue kinda were steady, but you expect them to be a lot higher. So anyway, that's a very long way of saying that we're continuing to spend a lot more. We didn't cut spending in response to the tax cuts actually the government passes, great big spending deal. So that's just me and more more and higher borrowing and it markets get nervous about that. Because again, it could weigh on economic growth crowd out private investment, speak with Kate Davidson, Wall Street Journal reporter about her story entitled US on a course to spend more on debt. Then defense is possible that things could. Reverse like that happened in the nineties. Right. We went from a debt to a surplus. Right. Exactly. You know, we we talked to someone in our story. Who said, look, you know, sometimes deficits are not all bad. Sometimes they're necessary to help get the economy really going and bring in more workers, enter workforce, and this this we talk about these things like they're never going to change like certainly policy makers at any time could take a big action to reverse things. And and I think there are a lot of a lot of people deficit. Hawks think tanks and people were kind of outside government looking in saying, wow, we really need to confront this. Of course. Now after the midterms we have a divided congress. So it's really unclear whether they're going to be able to come together and make these big really hard decisions to reverse this trend.
