Hopes dimming for another round of stimulus checks in 2020
"Talk about stimulus checks and also the economic relief package being considered by Congress. Now, one of the bills we had heard most recently did not include stimulus checks to go out. Now I'm just seeing this cross The Washington Post White House, pushing Senate GOP to include stimulus checks in that relief package. Let's find out the status of that first, and I know congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. Gracious enough to come on the show to talk about this male issue that some people are dealing with, But I just wanted to begin with that because I saw that cross and I know that's on a lot of people's minds. Thanks first of all for coming on the show. Thanks for having me on the show. This is the most important question I think right now is what are we going to do to relieve the terrible suffering the unnecessary suffering of so many people? I am All in for a they caught a stimulus check. I'm talking about it as a survival track. People are just simply running out of money. And without that, we can, you know, see people who have foreclosures and all kinds of disaster, including that even being able To put enough food on the table. As it is one out of four American Children is what is called food insecure about what that means in real English is they don't know where their next meal is going to come from Andre. That's just, you know, in the richest country in the world unacceptable, so I have been pushing very hard. Or this the cat to come to people's doors. In addition, though, it does seem to the the release package does seem to include Um, unemployment insurance money now, the day after Christmas. About half a million Illinois ins and 6.4 Million Americans will run out of unemployment checks. I mean, that kid, they will run out of money. And so what has been proposed instead of the last time when it was fixed out 6 $600 a week that would come to families. It looks like we may be able to get $300 a week to families, which is certainly better than that. Nothing but not a replacement. Or the individual checks that most people can take Take advantage of you talking about that federal boost, So it was 600 this time around. It might be 300 that extra on top of the unemployment that the state offers. No. Yes, That's right. Uh huh. Exactly. So we'll see. But you know, unemployment is is running out. And so you know, that may be the only money people are are getting and that's like I'm so much in favor of that of that. What did I say? Not not a stimulus tax, but a survival check. No, And that's that's a fair point. Because you know, some people only received the 1200 bucks and have had difficulties getting unemployment. You've We've had people call into the show, and so they still can't get through and lots of problems there. So That's not enough to just make survival. It's not enough as you point out, so I hope that there is some movement there. Do you believe right now, From what you know, in Congress that there will be a stimulus check like the $1200.1 in some amount That is also coming our way again. You know, the Republicans don't all thing to be on the same page. Mitch McConnell was not talking about a attack. The White House is the president is I'm hoping at the end of the day and that end of the day. I think it's not going to come until next week. It doesn't look like we're gonna arise. That compromise. Um, this week a little worse. Certainly. You know, the Democrats were certainly ready to get it to get it done to get some help on the way. Um, So I'm hoping that the president will prevail issues really pushing for that, and that will see that survival check. Can.

You're waiting for their medications that come in the mail. There are government checks, unemployment checks that come in the mail. All kinds of things. Stimulus checks will the old ones.

Some pockets of the city in the suburbs in the area are not getting great mail delivery. So I even heard from a listener who reached out to me yesterday, Someone named Pauline listening to the show. And she says, I have not gotten my mail in 34 days. She's on the north side of Chicago 34 days. So long, and she's tried so many different ways and called so many different people and she that she writes a blogged about it. She has a blogged listening who she's contacted what happened and where she is, in the process. She's going to join. The show is well, too, just to talk about her experiences because she had been able to talk to a live human in certain circumstances. I'm not sure for how far she got But, yes, she has been on top of it just trying to get her mail delivery restored and I totally feel for her.

"Our schools, our safety, our ability to make a livelihood, and that is the last thing politicians are thinking about when they're drawing these lines. It was Katie Fahey, executive director of the People which works to address extreme partisan Jerry Mandarin across the country. Casey he thanks so much for joining us. Thank you so much. We've been looking into the many challenges that will still be facing the country under a new administration, and now we want to turn to the nursing home crisis. Moving a family member into a nursing home has always been a difficult decision for most families because of concerns well founded or not about the cost the distance or the quality of care. But the Corona virus pandemic has added another layer of anxiety to all this. That's because about a quarter of all deaths from covert 19 in the US have occurred in nursing homes, and that's prompted new discussions about what can be done to make residents safer. NPR's Nina Jaffe covers aging and she's been reporting extensively on nursing homes during the pandemic. She says The challenges facing the long term care industry vary depending on whom you ask. That nursing home operators say their biggest problem is money. They get most of their income from the taxpayer through Medicare or more often for Medicaid. And what you hear pretty uniformly across the industry is that the government reimburses so little for Medicaid. That nursing homes lose money on those residents, and they say the tight margins are because of the other complaints from low staffing two lousy food. Now the American Health Care Association. The trade group, which represents mostly for profit nursing homes, says with the additional challenges of dealing with the pandemic, many of their members are in danger of going out of business. So the group is asking the federal government for $100 billion for all health care providers With quote a significant amount going to nursing homes. I should add. The nursing homes have already received about $7.5 billion in federal aid. As well as billions. Foreign paycheck protection funds say Apart from interest group represented the trade group representatives what two independent observers say has led to this terrible infection rate and death toll. Well even before the pandemic, the leading deficiency cited by nursing home inspectors was poor infection control. And if you want to get an idea of how serious this is, there are up to 3.8 million infections in nursing homes every year, leading to almost 400,000 deaths. That was before covert. Also advocates for nursing homes will tell you that the facilities, especially for profit facilities are chronically understaffed. And there is growing research that shows that lower staffing levels and for profit status are associated with more severe outbreaks of covert 19. So, as I said earlier, the decision to move a loved one to a nursing home was a decision that a lot of people made reluctantly even before the pandemic, So it has to be more difficult now. So our people in the industry talk about what could make nursing homes safer, like what are some of the ideas that they've come up with. Well, one ideas. It's got a lot of currency now has been around for nearly 20 years. It's called the greenhouse project. These are nursing homes with an emphasis on the home. Part of it. They're small, with maybe 8 to 12 residents that cuts down on infection spread. Everyone has a private room, which also helps control infection and during the pandemic greenhouse homes have been 1/5 is likely to have cases of covert 19. As traditional nursing homes. Of course, the small is beautiful philosophy means that nationally, there are only about 2500 people living in greenhouse project homes compared with about 1.3 million living a traditional nursing homes. You mentioned research earlier that links low staffing to covert outbreaks. What could be done to improve that? Oh, this is something that factions have been warring over for decades. Federal law says nursing facilities have to have sufficient staffing, which is certainly something in the eye of the beholder. Some states have specific staffing minimums, but advocates thing even those levels are too low Last year, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of Illinois and Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut Introduced measures to create federal minimum staffing requirements for nursing homes. But the American Health Care Association, the nursing Home Trade organization. Warren that facilities could go out of business if forced to shoulder these additional costs. And they've successfully lobbied the Trump Administration to East regulations they consider burdensome. To give Just one example finds for sub standard care have declined by about a third under the Trump administration. But advocates have fought these efforts, saying that the regulations are needed to keep nursing homes accountable. That was NPR's Nina Jaffe. I know. Thank you so much. Thank you. Coming up tomorrow on morning edition. Leaders from around the world have been offering their congratulations to President elect Joe Biden and vice president elect Pamela Harris. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for example, issued a statement saying she sincerely wished by wealth But some world leaders have remained silent or have barely acknowledged Biden's victory..

"Democratic congresswoman Jan Schakowsky encapsulating a sense among critics after the speech for the president's calls in his address to move forward together. The light the way he's actually governed. Lima four reporting. Well, let's pick out one of the foreign policy points from that address. Here's what President Trump had to say about US relations with North Korea. If I had not been elected, president of the United States. We would right now in my opinion being a major war with North Korea much work remains to be done. But my relationship with Kim Jong UN is a good one. Well, let's speak now to Mark Fitzpatrick. Joining us live from Washington, he's an associate fellow at the International Institute for strategic studies. He was a senior State Department official in charge of non-proliferation. Welcome to NewsHour. What what do you make of President Trump saying that he is responsible for averting a major war with North Korea? Well, it's it's almost laughable. Because a year ago a year and a half ago. Many analysts myself included thought that a war was very possible. Fifty fifty chance because of partly because of his rhetoric about a fire and fury and talk in the White House at that time about a bloody nose strategy. He then went on to reconcile with Kim Jong Lynn, so he averted the crisis that he had contributed to, but he likes to take credit for that kind of thing creating a crisis, and then averting it. Indicates that North Korea has less up on nuclear activities since he and Kim Jong UN signed this joint statement, which some regard is pretty vague the statement on denuclearization. What's your view of where we're at in terms of what North Korea has done. Well, they haven't really load up much at all. The one thing they have lit up on is a nuclear testing. They haven't tested for over a year, and they haven't been launching missiles, and that's a good thing. But there's no sign that they've led up on their building of nuclear weapons on their development of of better nuclear weapons they've they've closed a testing site, but without any international verification. So when he said, there's a lot more to be done that part is certainly true. There's a great deal more to be done. If we ever get to the goal of denuclearization. And what are we then to make of the key challenges ahead of the summit that President Trump announced in Vietnam. I'm not very optimistic that the summit will produce more than the Singapore summit produced which was a great photo opportunity for both presidents, but didn't really create anything specific. Trump's team has been trying hard to get more specificity his kion boy to North Korea. Stephen big was finally allowed to meet with his north grand counterparts. So he's in North Korea. Now trying to get trying to put some meat on this big promise of denuclearization. And maybe just maybe they will achieve some progress in defining what North Korea means by that. And whether North Korea really would be willing to close Yongbyon as they said they would exchange for corresponding measures. And then with those corresponding measures would be is the big item on North Korea's mind. Just very briefly the view from South Korea is much more optimistic than you seem to be outlining. Well, South Koreans are optimistic because Trump is right that they're they're not talking about war right now, south greens are not living in a state of tension, and their president is been seeking reconciliation and he deserves much of the credit for the easing of tensions. But unless North Korea takes real steps toward denuclearization. The sanctions that the world has imposed on North Korea will will not be relaxed, and it will be in a status a status of of a presumed positively without any specificity to it. Mark Fitzpatrick who is joining her joins us live from Washington DC from the International Institute for strategic. Studies was also, of course, a senior State Department official in charge of non-proliferation. Thanks. Well, let's go back to that state of union address. What does it actually achieve does America need one a tool, I've been speaking to Mitch Daniels, whose former Republican governor of Indiana now, president of Purdue University he thinks it's no longer fit for purpose? What did he think though of the latest address? Oh, I'm not sure the world needs another theater critic this morning out. I'll say, I guess because my complaints for the state of the union are generic rather than specific to last night or to any recent president. No, I got I was fairly typical you had. It was too long. It was. I would say reasonably poor quality in terms of the rhetoric. There was lots of play-acting in the audience and a lot of attention to that by those covering it. So I think I thought it had all the elements that, unfortunately, I believe have drained the civic value out of this particular ritual, a reason that among many others, I know have suggested it ought to be discontinued in favor of a formal written statement as as we want. So what why do you think it it? It should be just got rid of. Why why what's your why did you feel so strongly about that? First of all, it's not required. It's not contemplated by our constitution. Only a report to congress. And that's what we had for our history until at the dawn of the modern age. Politicians saw not propagandistic opportunities in it began converting it more to that purpose. I'm a big fan of civic occasions and ceremony which reminds us as as as Americans our good fortune and all those things we have in common. This the state of the union as it's evolved. I believe only doesn't serve that purpose. But in some ways runs counter to it is more likely to promote cynicism in its viewers than than citizenship and patriotic unity. But you could argue that it could be exactly what you're asking. It should be that it is down to the political culture that has made it what your criticizing. I agree. But I think it would be state to the sign up to the severe turn. Our current political culture has I hope temporarily taken lack of civility sharp division personalization of policy differences, all that because the state of the union, I think it's been deteriorating for quite a long time and has become steadily less and less of a occasion for of unity and dignity. But but I wonder whether you would consider that. What we see in the platform that the state of the union addresses is the cotton thrust of politics as it has existed. I would you know. You know, I was thinking I rather admire the way few Brits do things your house of Commons is a free for all and full to molten actual debate. And so forth. Quite a contrast boring. Unwatchable procedure dominated proceedings of of our congress. But you're ceremonies are rich with tradition respect and uplifting occasions, and we have it exactly the opposite way. At least with regard to this ceremony. We we should put the rambunctious stuff in the process. And and where it belongs and not in. What is supposed to be a? An occasion for a national convening. Well, that's an interesting perspective on what happens in house of Commons here. Former Republican governor of Indiana Mitch Daniels will return to the state of union address and speak to someone who very firmly supports President Trump before the end of the program. You're listening to NewsHour. It's.
