"I it's a serious problem in the middle east into. Let's hope that our country does the right thing by israel because it is know they both stood by us and i'm also concerned turkey. I understand is turning on israel to but have you heard anything about that. Well that's been going on for a while now. I mean it's getting worse you know for years. Israel was i'm mean Turkey was a close ally that they straddle the christian and muslim world they partner in nato They were strongly Anti islamist terrorism. They were very very strong. Allies of ours. They work closely with israel but earn on. He is making himself into a virtual dictator in turkey allying himself with extreme islamist elements and I am very concerned about turkey. They were in the last twenty years. They went from being close allies To being shown neutral and now being. I've actually hostile so i know we have to be very very careful. The monitor very carefully and their physicians become increasingly anti israel. And which is really unfortunate. Because turkey as i said. It was a staunch ally. We can count on. They were secular the secular nation and They resisted islamic terrorism. But now they definitely gone in that direction and become a virtual dictator as a former member of homeland security A congress We also you concerned about right now. When china we saw this week and you the one i want aware of it is the colonial pipeline. How they could hack into that. I would never this. Group is in russia. We have to fortify our infrastructure. Much much stronger way. against attacks. I mean you've come out in favour. Which i think is a excellent idea that you really follow up on it. Having side before us This is gonna be the next enemy the next real enemy. Maybe the covered real enemy. I was gonna be Either nations or private or separate a renegade organizations that can use cyber a cyber attacks as a weapon. I mean just think of all damage that was done by going. After this one pipeline. This week i mean. North east was basically writing off the high price of gasoline. Go sky have you pointed out many in the price of gasoline goes everything gets i it is. It's an active for who knows Who controls those terrorists. It's an act of terrorism. And i've said publicly that bitcoins. I don't know what the hell the used for other than by criminals or people want to hide it from basically i arrest or by terrorists. Last year was seven billion dollars. Congressman of of bribes paid in bitcoin. No again i think that whole thing because that's more regulation of it. Whatever action as we taking. This is something that you want to along. That has to be carefully. Scrutinized carefully watch and action taken if we have to also. I don't think we're gonna rush off the hook here whether or not russia was behind it. This operation apparently works out of russia. And to me you the country responsible if there's a criminal element in your country which is attacking our country. I hold russia responsible for that. What are they doing it themselves. And not supporting or not having obligation to find it and root it out congressman peter king. Thank you for coming on the show today. And that's how you wash.

"Is interesting. Maybe maybe that's could be. Who knows their introduction to? Internet technology and. Seen other facebook with your grandkids. When we hope will happen sometime sooner rather than later but eventually. We think this pandemic Wayne and things will start to. Sort of level off to some maybe new normal and I'm wondering if. You will look back on this five years from now and notice that in twenty twenty one. You were using a lot more telehealth than you were in. Twenty. Nineteen. As in wispy jump. I mean I didn't explain that very well, but is this going to become part of the new normal sort of greater reliance on telehealth going into the future even after the pandemic? Yes we believe. That it well, one of the reasons that we that we believe. So passionately, Intel monitoring. Fat Leave. Really. Do believe that it keeps people's home faith and out of the hospital. probably monitoring can be used for a number of different people with different condition, but we primarily use it for people with heart car conditions hypertension. if they have any respiratory issues like COPD, those are the people that we see ten go to the doctor a lot and you know unfortunately hospitalized a lot. the we really do think that my had been checked vital find them by partnering with the patients. Again in the home, they have certain questions that they have to answer. That are disease specific that will help us to look for those small little warning signs little changes that again might indicate that that they're getting a little worse. So unfortunately, you are not going to go away anytime soon. They're they're not and I think also the the the desire to want to stay at home. Especially, as we see Kinda shifts in our demographic in the demographics, our population people want to be at home I. Think No one wants to go to the emergency room, go to hospital and I think partly what the pandemic has shown us is that there are lots of different opportunities to use telehealth for people so I know that our maternal on child health team. Used it to support women who were pregnant who had just had a baby after they got home from the hospital with lactation support and kind of other other care needs and are we have therapy team Rpt's are Ot's and our speech and language pathologists could use video visit functionality to to provide visits, fully remote visits and also to provide check. INS In between visit. So I think an you know the technology is really expanding in terms of what can connect to the Tele Monitor and what we can do remotely. So there's never going to be replacement for the hands on in person care, but I think this will be used to provide a lot more and more robust, complementary and supplemental care. For. People. In you know we were talking a little bit ago about the nurses driving out in the rural dirt roads and so on. These, these places tend to be often the last to be served by strong broad broadband access and I'm wondering obviously telehealth. Good Good Internet connection. Right. are you running into the? Limitation these days and and serve more if it is for for the state or local communities to build out broadband. are in favor of broadband across the state Fortunately, the company that that we have used to provide the monitors is called HRIS health recovery solutions, and these tablets come with a variety Eisenson card. So it's just like having having a cellphone. what we have found that most places do have a variety signals that we are able to place in the home. Even if the person doesn't have any any Y fire broadband we also have a tablet with an at and T. Card in it that we are using to see in those areas that don't have ride and signals can we still reach them at and T.? I mean is there a percentage that were were they just don't have good cell service. And and still gap or what we think. Oh. have been it Gas probably in only about two percent of the people that have tried to put it in. So we've been very fortunate with a lower than I would have expected to. See. That is good news. This is A. Fascinating conversation. But unfortunately, we're about out of time. So I. Wish you well in farewell but.

"Or where's all that stand? Well in the house pass fail it is restored it would continue in most of the economists say that the continuation of unemployment benefits when you have high unemployment is absolutely essential to a quicker recovery. The other thing. There's two other things they all recite absolutely essential. When is nutrition assistance? There is rising hunger in our country and in Vermont in the Nutrition Assistance Defense that we we've provided is enabled of Vermont organizations. In our schools. To help feed Vermont and we saw How much incredible activity. Of the National Guard was dispensing meals that these small regional airports and I'm going to go when they were doing. It lies are over Mile Lock. There's unemployment there's nutrition and then the third thing that's really essential is aid to state and local government and again. The aspect of just that I. Encouraged my Republican colleagues to think about is how Those things they need in their states just their district's as much as we needed Vermont. But you know what's happened here with our state budget is that revenues tax revenues collapsed municipal budgets. Are under enormous pressure as well. So we've gotTA provide some assistance in those three areas. Especially the payroll protection plan his been a lifeline for a mini of our small businesses in you know my biggest apprehension is that When if and when we were going to get to the other side of Koga that'll happen at some point. But we don't want to leave behind hollowed out community all round the state where they don't have those local restaurants. We don't have those performance venues We don't have those nonprofits in doing so much. You know you mentioned what's going on in White River? Well, we've kind of helped him get through this so they're going to be there. on the other side of cove. And you know it gets the The reality is. That this is a once a century calamity. With coke. And we've gotTA respond in the only governmental entity that has the fiscal capacity and flexibility to step up help how I date help our individuals that twelve hundred dollar check on employment. Health are help our communities is the federal government. And It is existential economically that we keep. People. Afloat. So that's why. You're here we voted on it yesterday, and then it's gotta be a agreement where the president is willing. Kosei halt supported inside it and. He's the one he's really in the driver's seat this point for trump. Of course, the Senate. Majority leader, Mitch. McConnell. Obviously has to concur as well if the president gives the signal, will they? Senator Mikhail would you know he's basically opted out of the negotiations and he's got a split Republican conferences of about twenty members of the Senate. The basically said they don't WanNa. Do Anymore Eight. And Many others particularly once in tough reelection sites who really want to do eight. And McConnell can't get agreement among the Republican counsel to what he has said. Is it president trump agrees to a plan he will put it on the floor for a vote. So the key person here is the president of the United States. He has mentioned power because they found his signature. We're not GONNA get anything past of. Make that I mean that's that's the reality of it so. When the President what are the? Just a couple minutes. I did want to give a moment to this criticism that we heard on the unemployment front that. People who are getting that federal six hundred dollars a week bump. In their unemployment, we're actually ended up making more money than they had been while they were working creating a disincentive to getting back to work. Is that is, is that being is the thing being tweaked to try to address that or where we on that? Well. I heard the same implement employers and I think that is an issue where some folks would intact do better if they get both state in federal six hundred dollars. Bucks. It is. That's why I made a proposal to distance joined by many. Colleagues including Republicans where essentially instead of having it go through the state unemployment where you're working at. A place. The money would go through the employer, pay your wages at the same rate that you were receiving before. That's something that I think actually would deal with that. So. There's some credibility to that at the other side of it is that. a lot of our businesses have benefited by the fact that people are able to pay the rent they're able to continue buying your groceries. Through able to keep body and soul together so that those are important things. Go. Ahead. I was just GonNa say well, we are about out of time unfortunately, but as he has always congressman Peter Welsh, I, really appreciate you coming on the air with us this morning. Thank you so much. We'll talk soon. Let's go to the bottom of the hour CBS News and we talked to folks from central, Mont, home health hospice in just a couple of minutes.

"The street after the decision in the brown dog. Case that has reorganized it has the organizers violent and it's out there and if this was the right wing it was being done. Everybody was screaming their heads off about how terrible and dangerous it was I'm scratching my head would be I direct the re the other day says this achiever people are not organized. Okay, maybe you don't call them and T4, but somebody is organized because that's what they're doing is they're going around and putting out what you call remember them word streak money, you put our tag and one of my friends there was an actor. They tried to hire him and he wanted me to act like a a terrorist, you know, do whatever he has to do in the payment $1,000 a day. Now what I said to some US senators had dinner last week, is that if somebody a source type I'm not saying it's Soros. It might be China and might be Russia. I don't know who it is puts out a hundred thousand dollars a month. And Street money to get these demonstrators because it looks like the politicians only listening to demonstrators which had a hundred thousand dollars in Street money for demonstrations wage millions of dollars in advertising on all the cable channels because that's all the cable channels play is is the rioting they play it over and over they don't call it riding. They call them peaceful protests a peaceful protest with maybe a few people acting violently. That's the way they described it. Meanwhile the cops are ducking Molotov cocktails and Bricks or the other night as usual in Louisville. Cops being shot. Now. The box is organized. You can't do something this quickly overnight with the force they have with the weapons. They have it's definitely organized. You know, who's behind it? That's what the FBI am looking into and investigating and to me there's no doubt in my mind and keep it is a terrorist organization so violent organization and the way they can spring up all over the place. Scream and Carry Out acts of violence to me. It's the say that that's not a domestic terrorism. I don't know what you call maybe we should change definitions that but no there is a definitely progressive left-wing violent move this country and we have to do something stop it and some of them are just actors trying to create the the scene. Well Congressman Peter King, thank you for everything you do for our country you have done for our country continue to do for our country and I'm sure you'll be fighting again in the future and looking forward to talking you real soon. Thank you John lets you and I always will do stand with the men and women. I agree. This is the cash Round Table will be right back..

"She was there with the guy who was shooting at the cops. She had a prior involvement with a drug deal in Louisville, which is why her apartment was raided. So all this was done the right way tragically. She was killed was not the police officers. And it said, you know, see right and accept that or rather than try to find a legal way to disagree with that is riots in the streets. And this is what we saw after Georgia Floyd we had weeks and weeks of random violence and riots and where people like the governor and the mayor calling a peaceful process. I was the 74th Precinct nice New York the other day and the commanding officer that a deputy inspector nationality. He's just become he got hit in the face with a brick that night and when they put him in the ambulance the rioters try to prevent the ambulance or taking Into the Dead. And so because the guy was lucky he's alive and I don't remember anybody talking about that instead they if find that some a millennial got pushed to the ground somewhere that becomes a major case against the Car Fax and copy the face of brick somehow that's just considered another day at work. So it's really it's a larger issue of society breaking down and people at law enforcement having your hands off and it also is you and I have discussed in the past the fact that what went on during the Obama Administration the why it's happening of a presidential campaign and attempt to really undermine wage campaign using the FBI and CIA people like John Brennan and John called me being involved FBI agents actually altering documents being submitted to the secret Court we have off and to get a yeah why it's not permit. I mean, this is again a dramatic change in our government you go backwards kennedy-nixon or next Thursday. Country even Reagan and Jimmy Carter one can they be slightly right-of-center the other slightly left-of-center what the differences were all within the American debate now, it's almost like if you have it like a hate America crowd is driving the Democratic party Congressman. I mean, I'm pretty much convinced that there's a force behind some of these people that are that are pushing the peaceful demonstrators and it seems like the FBI has come out and said yes, there are there is a group of people that going from state-to-state home and and they show up where they think that's going to be a protest. I think it was in Louisville to be a U-Haul truck showed up and they had all kinds of banners in there and and writing material and we find out that U-Haul truck was rented by a Hearst Corporation. Have you heard about that job? I don't know if it's accurate or not. But I've heard that and seen enough evidence though around the country where these demonstrations just start over night. I mean, you know, I've been in politics a long time to organize peaceful demonstrations to get people to show up at a certain location that's difficult to put a lot of time and effort into it. But in this case even with the judge voice yelling like within days you had these violent demonstration is appearing all over the country going back to President Trump was elected suddenly had riots and streets you had violence. I was in Philadelphia of Republican media memory in January of 2017 and the writers and demonstrates around to the hotel. I mean, this is really dangerous stuff and and to see the way it was done this time in Washington DC New York City of Portland Seattle all these places around the country and our Louisville the other night or even in New York City where you had demonstrated suddenly out in.

What is this morning Thursday a good friend retiring at the end of the year Congressman Peter King a member of the homeland security committee and one smart guy. Good morning, Smith. How are you this morning. I'm doing great anytime a spot guy like who calls me smart. I really feel good. So thank you. Thank you very much. Well, you have served America for almost 30 years and you you know your stuff off. You know instead about being a democrat or republican you have common sense, which is even more important in than titles. Give us an update. What's going on in Washington. We have riots against things are happening. We only have almost less than 40 days for the election. What's going on? Well, first of all not very much is going on in Washington. Both parties are stalemated. I think I do need for instance 8 to be going the city and state governments and Republicans don't want to move on that. I think we have to be much more to be to protect and defend the police the Democrats off the opposite direction on that. They either put aside the police or stay silent when there's violence against the cops. I mean, this is a really a breakdown in society, especially this whole Law and Order issue. I've been in Congress out almost 28 years. I've been in public life one way or the other for almost fifty years and this is the first time I've seen such a breakdown. In civil order even during the sixties and seventies during the dark days of the eighties when crime was getting out of control in New York. There was always a certain stability. That was that now we fight almost except for this way when things were bad people acknowledge. They were bad today. It's considered part of the cost out of people don't like it decision by a grand jury. They're giving a lot and Ryan nothing to lose. They're going shoot cops. This is somehow able to rid of it and spots and for instance the the undertale a case in Kentucky in that case the grand jury member. I got the Attorney General laid out the findings of the injury very clearly why two police officers were not indicted in the tragic feeling of being on his head and I agree with the decision, but even if I didn't actually it was a well-thought-out decision or was a all the facts were there showing that the police were fired job. They fired back. The only Taylor was with the person who was shooting at the cops and it's not the police fault that she was caught in the fire..

"Vermont, it's the Dave Graham show on wd. It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most view. Now, here's your host Dave Graham. Good Morning Vermont. Tuesdays and timber the eighth twenty twenty year in Vermont where you're getting. Back to school today, this is the day that the governor declared some weeks. AGO would be the start of school most schools originally planned to start earlier than this but because it was determined that more coronavirus planning was needed a little bit extra time was given for school administrators, teachers, staff etcetera. To get ready for today but today is finally here i. wish everyone the best of luck and good health and getting. Back into some, some degree of normalcy would be really really nice. We We are just hoping that's. That's what we're doing maybe the more religious among a prion but. All of that stuff. For more of please. Anyway we're GONNA be talking the first half hour this morning with Congressman Peter Welch about various goings on in Washington including his. His. Head looking into along with other members of Congress this latest. Scandal is he got In the trump administration involving the postmaster general Louis to Joy North Carolina. Politician and fundraiser for the Republican Party apparently was. Allegedly, anyway according to a Washington Post investigation was pressuring employees at his previous company. To make donations to Republican candidates and. Then was reimbursing them in the form of bonuses. That they would get in addition to their regular pay for working for this company in. North Carolina. And that's a no no. Under campaign finance law you're not supposed to do that. So we'll be talking with congressman, Walter about that as well as other issues that are percolating along, we want to get an update on whether there's any hope. For passage of this Heroes Act which would be the follow on Corona virus aid package that the US House passed away back in June maybe late me somewhere in there and the Senate has not done anything with it other than stall and delay and. So the house is. Still pushing but. Seeing headlines now indicating that hopes are dimming for passage of this round two of coronavirus funding in it. So there's a big issue here Vermont where the legislature is trying to finalize a state budget. This week they were hoping for is significant shot of federal aid to help with that work and It appears that nothing really can be counted on at least as of today. Now, you'd never know things could break a whole different way tomorrow. But or by the end of the week or sometime in the not too distant future. But we are. Always Hope Springs Eternal I. Guess maybe that's one way to describe the situation. Anyway, we'll be talking with Congressman Walter about some of those issues in this first half hour in the second half hour we're going to shift gears and talk about apples and. Of course with all coming here in Vermont. Apples in a number three crop in the state behind dairy end Maple Syrup as agricultural products from Vermont and we're GONNA. Be Talking about the outcrop and it's looking good from what I understand. So that'll be good and then later on discussion with Vermont Attorney David Kelly about the Edward Snowden case which had an important attorney last week with a new court really we'll get into that in the second hour of the program I do believe we now have Congressman Peter Welch with us and Congressman thank you very much for joining me this morning. Thank you. And I wish you a happy September I. Hope you had a good. Somewhat restful Labor, day, weekend, and ready to get ready for. The fall campaign and all the goings on coming up and one thing I understand is that you have been. Watching closely this whole situation involving. The Nation's postmaster general. What's going on with? Lose the joy from your understanding. Well first of all, it was a great Labor Day weekend and you know this is back to school day and got to say I just I'm thinking about for my parents who were juggling. trying to stay at work or work at home and get their kids safely back into school, and this is a huge challenge for our teachers, our administrators and our parents. So you know we're in good. We've were in relatively good shape in Vermont with the virus US everybody taking it very seriously but going back to school is essential you know I know a lot of stress for for my parents and educators. So everybody well. The Post Office. situation it's really pretty outrageous. I mean essentially. WanNa. Give a little background here. Postal Services about service is not about politics. It's about delivering the mail. It's about getting prescriptions to veterans. I mean, most of the veterans who have prescriptions through the Va get them via mail, it's about getting baby checks to farmers so they can make an income by. Raising them and in in in selling and selling aches and. In nineteen seventy. President Nixon signed the postal reform. act. Where it was very explicit we were taken politics out of the post office that changed with President trump in two things happened one. he appointed. The head of the Board of Governors is a guy named John Dunkin. And on his web on the Postal Service website, he brags that his accomplishments, the race four, hundred, twenty, nine, million dollars for the Republican National Committee and then secondly, this Louis Joy. is very successful businessman we're power to. But in the five years leading up to his appointment, he gave three point one million dollars to Republican candidates to the trump reelection to the Republican National Committee, and there's also information that is now going to be investigated. That, he basically pressured people who work for him to make a significant contributions in order for him obviously to curry favor. And the action he took. Two when he became postmaster general. Where to slow down the mail? He started sending trucks out demanding they leave quote on time even though they were empty. Of, insanity? he removed a lot of of the postal sorting machines which are essential to the fast processing, a male, and then we've seen the stories about male slowing down. And of course, this totally coincided. With president trump's unfounded allegations that mail in voting is corrupt. There's no evidence for that whatsoever. Americans Republicans Democrats independents one vote by mail or should have that option. Corona virus situation. So the hearing we had in the oversight committee. Just revealed these incredible links between Dunkin and joy and the political future of president trump and that's completely in violation of what the Nixon bill was to take the politics out of the Post. Message animals position. You know the history here had there been a lot of politics in in in the postal service up until Nixon. Signed that bill into law. Well there was, yeah, there was a lot of politics. The postmaster general assignment was very plum job in JFK for instance, appointed Larry O'Brien who is his campaign manager, but the politics that were associated with the post master's job had to do with the power that the postmaster general had to give out chops like to be the postmaster in Burlington or the postmaster in Hartland. Okay. So jobs associated with it, but it never got politicized to the point where it was used as a tool to try to thwart voting. So it's gone from what was ineffective patronage opportunity that was used by both parties up until nineteen seventy and then that got taken out..

Congressman Peter King and he always tells us the truth of what's going on. Good Morning Congressman King. How are you? Join I'm doing just fine. How are you? Helping the best room, merica understand there's three different companies would. Would possible that teams and all emergency are waiting for that because our country has been driven by fear lately instead of promises. Word you said. Obviously, the coronavirus is seriously obviously the riots and disturbances and demonstrations in streets, certainly concerning, but the fact is, we are the greatest country in the world, and we've always found a way in the past to work our way out of whatever problems affect us and I. Think the The vaccine. The you know the promising vaccine we have a number of companies working. Working so hard and apparently making so much progress, we should be more upbeat. I know it's maybe easy for you or me to say that, but I would just hope considering all the things that country has gone through that we can stay strong and keep going forward because in the end Americans because spirit I ingenuity or always find a way to come out on top.

Can't happen overnight the way the way it did I mean. This has to be some sense of organization that has to be as you were saying like when they had in New York the situation where you had the peaceful march of African American ministers and community leaders, marching over the Brooklyn Bridge and then it turns out that you had a carloads coming dropping off bats to people to attack them and to attack the police We've seen the his orchestration and coordination nationwide again. I believe there's obviously a connection, but there are other groups on the left who?

SMARTEST CONGRESSMAN I know won't team terms in Congress what percents Long Island. We have Congressman Peter King Good Morning Congressman King. How are you this morning? Good morning, drive actually I. Think all of us. New York very saddened by what's been happening you know we have to have. Hope and go forward really the events over the last weekend, so really really been tragic. Vote to what's happening now and also I think to the future of the city. You know everyone. Everyone was shocked by what happened to Mr Floyd out in Minneapolis. That was just A. Graceful everyone condemns it. I don't know if anyone who's anyway defended what the police did not situation and yet to see these really riots in New York. I mean the NYPD as an only The epithets vulgarities aimed at the cops. People Brooks out the Molotov cocktails. Rocks I mean just insulting and One compensate where the fire extinguisher others hit it with trash cans. This is. Disgraceful and no one is more to say black lives and white lives, and all lives than the NYPD I mean they reduced. Murders for almost two thousand a year who barely two hundred a year songs and ninety percent decrease in murders, most of the murder victims in the past, the majority of them, an African Americans and their communities, so the police have saved responsible for saving thousands of African American lives over the last twenty is protecting all of us. They're not perfect. No one's perfect, but to have politicians criticizing the cops when they defend themselves like when the police were trapped in a vehicle by a mob. Mob and they had pushed their caught through to make it through and to be criticized for doing that. When just the night before a Molotov cocktails been thrown into a vehicle when they they show evidence videos of a police officer, taking his gun out, implying he just wants to threaten innocent people, and they leave out. The rest of the video shows that the he pulled the weapon only when one of the people through brick, which hit his commanding officer on the head. This is just. It's. It's so out of touch. What does the NYPD which is so much to save human lives? Why are they being battered and bruised and wounded insulted for something that happens to Minneapolis? It's wrong and always done there. In fact. I discussed this governor Cuomo the other night. Everyone says only a handful of violent protesters while if she would have to Manhattan or the Business Oshman's and some people that were damaged by this handful of processes. I don't know when the hand from protesters. Theropod city before and got away with it, so it's more than a handful and It's time for all..

"So it! That's not the type of Richard. Nixon that I think he wants to be able to parallel but there's another thing to this as well. That's very interesting. which is that they the the trump justice department under jeff sessions and especially in the beginning, began to reverse some of the Obama era policies which tried to. Create more federal oversight over police, and to be able to work with police departments around the country to retrain and to develop better methods to be able to deal with the minority community, so one of those things that doesn't gain the headlines very much is the fact that the trump administration so because we tried to eat birth, some of those efforts to deal with police departments and their minority communities so again, That's an aspect of you know crimefighting that that doesn't get the headlines But may be an important thing here. Yeah voyage certainly seems to be and I was on the phone with Congressman Peter, Walsh from Vermont a little earlier in today's program and he. He talked about this weird confluence where we have. You. Know you can check off years. We're terrible. Things have happened in the united. States so we have nine hundred eighteen. Okay, we! We have the endemic. We have nine hundred twenty nine. Okay, we have the economic crash we have now we have nine hundred and sixty eight. Okay, the strife in the in the cities. And other other years kind of all rolled into one in twenty twenty What what kind of an impact is that? Is that Combo platter. I called going to have on this year's elections. Do you think? Well, and all of those cases you think about sort of depression for example, you know. How did we deal with it? As a country well through our resources, resourcefulness for sure and our ability to think of new ways to address problems, but a large part of it was through presidential leadership, and mobilization of the national sort of will to be able to address these particular issues They even did that to some extent during the Spanish flu, mobilizing the nation to. To address and deal with something that was far greater than their ability to to deal with at that moment in time and certainly in one thousand, sixty eight. You saw its failure of leadership in so many ways, and then the political exploitation of the crises of that year to be able to get elected so I think the you know one can surely say that the best formula for dealing with something like that is through national leadership. You go back to nineteen sixty eight. And in one of the classic instances I. Don't Know How many of your listeners may know about this, but after Martin Luther King Shot Robert. Kennedy was heading to Indianapolis to do a rally and he found out about The king assassination and the doctor King of died and he was going to this rally in a predominantly minority part of the city. And the police warns him said, don't go there. There could be trouble. And he said No. I'm going to go there. And sort of. He wrote out scribbled out his speech as he was heading got up on the back. Of A flatbed truck and announced to the crowd that hadn't heard of in those days, because obviously people didn't have cell phones then that Martin Luther, King had had been killed, and then went on to give one of arguably one of the greatest political speeches in our country where he talked about, he drew on the Greek poet Escola. He talked about his brother's death. He talked about the pain that people feel and of all the cities, the major cities that experienced unrest in nineteen, sixty, eight one city didn't and that was Indianapolis, and many attribute that in large part, not particularly all part, but in large part the leadership that Bobby Kennedy showed at that moment. Moment in time so what I think. The country yearns for is national leadership offense that the character. No, this shit is steering us in the right way, and not leaving it to random sellers to be able to figure out how to row the boat. and I think that's really the ingredient right now. No matter how many issues our country has to do with you want and expect your president to through perform that. National Leadership Role. Franklin Roosevelt of the presidency was all about moral leadership, and that's what he tried to exercise during the nineteen thirties during the depression or world. War Two and I think to a great extent that is what is missing right now. All Right Leonard Steinhorn of CBS News I. Thank you very much for joining me this morning. It's good talking with against her. Thanks as always thank you already. I saw an interesting email last week. being circulated around by the principle of the rice memorial high school in South. Burlington is a Catholic affiliated school. The principal's name is Lisa, Lawrence and she basically. Was asking folks to. Help the school effectively campaign for to receive some of the some of the federal funding coming down through the state, agency of Education of that a lot of it's going to other public schools in Vermont and. Anytime you have a situation where public money is being talked about being sent to private schools or sectarian schools in this case, a religious affiliated school like rice. It raises the question in some people's minds about. The First Amendment. You know the famous line opens the first. Amendment Congress shall make the law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, and that first phrase no law, respecting an establishment of religion often has been interpreted to say that you really can't have a government government support government funding for religious for churches or church, affiliated institutions and. A meanwhile, there's always a tug of war about that. Because the counter argument is that kids are kids, and some of them happened to be in school, like of race or another another religiously affiliated school and why shouldn't they share in some of the benefits of? The government's support for education in general. And then. You get into that then. There's a whole nother layer here. Right now, which is in the? COVID nineteen crisis. Many. Many things are rules and and et. CETERA are being laid aside as people try to respond to the crisis.

I think that after a while it would your yeah I think I get it Sam. Thanks call appreciate it. Want to? Speak to another witness of protests that occurred in in Burlington We had Matthew Roy from seven days for the last few minutes. Really appreciated Matthew Jacob time with us, but Belinda justice lives in Plainfield and she traveled to Burlington with friends on On Saturday evening, and participated, and I just wanted to get a flavor by the way I did reach out to a couple of Vermont's leaders of Color and just was unable to schedule. any of the leaders of civil rights groups in the state trying to scramble this morning. You get this together on fairly short notice. So hoping it as a week goes on, we can We can get get some folks who are who are volleys issues on a daily basis and can talk to us about how they see these things playing out in Vermont. we tend to Vermont as being a fairly liberal and tolerant et Cetera estate. certainly is far from perfect but so let's go to Berlin my friend Belinda justice from Plainfield who is She is a someone who participated Saturday evening. I tell me why would talk about the? It's a forty five mile trip or whatever? What. What? What made you decide you needed to be there? I think it was. I mean adjusting common sense to me. you know the bigger the large crowd, the more solidarity we have? and and as these protests popping up all over the united, states was really really really important for me to be out there in solidarity with black lives matter and to just say enough is enough, and that's police cannot just murder innocent of black people community on the streets anymore and that we are not. I'm not going to tolerate that anymore. yeah, so it's just basic human rights getting up to your fellow. S Congressman Peter Welch this question a few minutes ago. I wanted to put it to you, too. Which is that Is this something. I mean I. Mean Racism is is is not unique to the police, is it? I mean we because just in the last week? Or last couple of weeks we've been focused on a lot of on some other instance, not involving the police we had this. The jogger Donna Georgia Mr Aubrey who was killed by a audience on who barely had no. Police affiliation. They just thought they were suddenly going to take up patrol in their own neighborhood or something. and then we had this weird incident in central, park where this woman also not a police officer, but was threatening to try to bring in the police and get them involved in an argument, which basically she was having about whether she needed to put her dog on a leash and. she was talking to this African American guy. Saying I'm. GonNa call the police and tell them an African American man is threatening my life, and of course you know that that brings the full power of the police down presumably on this guy who? Was a bird watcher. He was bothered by the dog because he thought the dog would disturb the birds us, trying to watch and I mean just one of these weird sort of human interactions that took on racial overtone. so clearly, the issues of race extend throughout our society well beyond the police, don't they? Yeah! I mean I would say that you know systemic racism unfortunately is a very You know old and Still ongoing problem affects every little aspect You know people's lives and I think but if you look at like the instance of that woman, she was purposely in the video talking using the police. As a way knowing full well, it was very clear in the video I saw. The knowing full well, the implications of that so I don't think you makes the police department. However I do feel that the police departments has. In Burlington also just you know. Has Not done enough to address this issue and they're real substantially. It is extremely rare for any police officer to ever be held accountable I think unfortunately I personally feel that we re imagined the police departments, and it does We need to have more community, policing and I, don't know I mean I just feel like They're able to kill people with impunity. They're rarely held accountable various racism and police departments. I mean that's. going. Since forever and There's just hasn't been really anything substantial down about it We'll let me ask you one last question. which is that You When you when you were done with the protests and you were heading home Did you feel any sense satisfaction at all? Did you feel like that you know an important? Stephen was made in heard. Did you feel what what was that? What was that like? Yeah I definitely felt like it did feel. It felt good knowing that the protests were happening all over the United States and so We were just one of many larger protests, and that they sort of blew off I think more snow than in the past and so. Being in Burlington, I would say there is maybe about twelve hundred people there I heard paper like maybe fifteen hundred. Surrounded the police station and a woman. Matter was talking to I couldn't hear that part, but trump getting to the chief of police and You know we put the black lives matter flag up, and it just felt yeah I felt like there was a lot of people that are and people really angry, and we're just not gonNA. Take it anymore and that it's time for real change and I will. I appreciated the the Nice flowery words. you know the police chief I in the paper? I felt that We need action not more not more words. We've heard a lot of that in the past and we need substantial change. All Right? We'll BELINDA. Thank you so much for joining the program this morning.

Impact of this collapse has been brutal, and it's going to be sustained so I. Think Flexibility is absolutely vital to a good outcome. I I've seen a couple of emails pop in here and they make really ought to stay focused on on this on the. The Minneapolis you know the the George Floyd killing it and the response to it, because a lot of people just seem to be very very understandably upset a upset and worried So talk to us about a little bit about your sense of the ongoing confrontations between.

There are are calling for some kind of dialogue that You know we're we're we we? We listen issues that need addressing etc.. which way do you go on this one? Well, I totally support peaceful protests, absolutely support it and people are in the street by and large. Because they're appalled at what happened, and they don't want it to happen again and they weren't. Reforms with the violence is bad and I always look to I. John My colleague. John Lewis. who was a civil rights icon in who was involved when demonstration after another in the freedom rides in opening up places of public accommodation. Accommodation who suffered brutal beating at the Edmund Pettus Bridge and he he is a complete advocate of peaceful demonstrations. make good trouble is what he says. Be Constructive, but not destructive, so yes, I am very very supportive of the protests that people in this country are expressing their toe complete opposition. What happened in Minneapolis and to the ongoing lack of social and economic justice, but I think when the president comes out and says. What do you think when the president comes out and says when the looting starts shooting starts. It Y-. Can you say I mean the? Person has a position of significant leadership. Whether it's a mayor or governor president. and. There's enormous tension and we have that in our society now we have with what happened in Minnesota. We had A. we've having it with one hundred thousand people losing their lives in the coronavirus. Forty million people without work. And a leader has to decide whether they're going to use position to try to come. Troubled waters and bring people together. For pour gasoline on the fire and keep them apart. And regrettably I, think we all know the approach. The president is taking. Do you think it's effective? Politically will at score him votes in November. It's definitely his His his his mo I mean the president has done is made a decision that he wants to keep quote his base Engaged with him? And Division is what works as a political tactic as he sees it, and that's regrettable, because whether or not that works for him politically I mean it worked for him to get him elected. But whether it works for him or not, does it work for the country I? Don't think any of us believe that works for the country I. Mean we face? Twenty twenty is. So, extraordinary in the history of this country we're. We're dealing with something that hasn't happened since nineteen eighteen pandemic. We're dealing with something that hasn't happened since nineteen twenty nine the verge of a Great Depression. we're dealing with activity on the streets. The protests that we saw nineteen sixty eight. were. We dealt with an impeachment that reminds us of what happened in Nineteen, seventy, three, and all of these very traumatic events for the country. And how is it that we get through it? It's not going to be sharpening divisions. It's ultimately going to be by healing divisions. And we need when you have a president who believes divisions help politically that make. That's GonNa continue to hurt his net nationally as a as a country. Where we have to come together and find ways to heal divisions among us. That's pretty incredible. I guess we have wouldn't nine thousand, nine, hundred and nine, hundred twenty nine. You mentioned a couple of years eleven sixty eight. Seventy three all rolled into one year. Yeah, it's. It's very traumatic. People are on edge, and they're insecure about their health. During the people, they love their insecure about their ability to pay their bills What's future? What's the future for their kids I mean it is it's. Objectively Challenging Times. What are we doing, you know? The president is pulling us out of the World Health Organization in the middle of a pandemic. he's attacking a national journalist accusing him without any evidence whatsoever of a homicide twenty years ago, he's making up a a new claim about President Obama with again without any evidence of so-called Obama Gate in Russia so this is all soak in the fires, and it's not healing the divisions. Well. I. I hope we can somehow get through it and and survive in one piece. When you when you when you? When you listed the years like that, I just I I said.

"Michael Thank Michael. Thank you thank you for the call. Appreciate it and the congressman. Peter Welch I I'm just wondering in terms of social security right now there. There is no money going into the system because of the there's been a hold put on collections of the payroll taxes. That right Y- actually. I'm not sure about that. Hugh say so but the point is that whether there's a whole there's also a lot more people that are not Working in in drying paycheck. We've okay that's so I should. I should call that subject to subject to check. I know that the president proposed that at one point whether that's actually been. I don't think we get that. I don't I'm not a fan of that idea but So I was talking about you. Go from having the lowest unemployment in our history to probably having depression level unemployment in the space of a month than all those millions and millions of Americans. I mean we're going to be bumped enough. To THIRTY MILLION UNEMPLOYED folks. Those folks were contributing to Social Security. And now they are and they're drawing unemployment that that is a that is a formula for very tough. Tough numbers in terms of just trying to maintain the sustainability of that system and You Know I. It's just another ramification here are just giant shocks to all of the. It's kind of assumptions. We were making about our economy just a couple of months ago. It's really. It's really a very strange times. We're living in a D. Do you have any talk to me? A little bit about your thoughts on the On the goal of a lot of people is to get the economy back up and running again. You see the the state of Georgia now has as a pushed. I think there are among the sort of pushing the hardest for getting getting folks back out and Are they going too far too fast? Well like they are. They clearly are very close. Contact young massage parlors of hair salons nail salons tattooed. Carlos. You mean that you couldn't get worse than closer to transmit it so. I think they are but the goal here you know. The the goal is pretty clear In that is to get on top of this virus so that we have is limited An impact on an individual's health trying to keep people from getting it as possible. Try to limit the number of deaths to as low as possible. That's the goal. The means to achieve. That are are also clear but their heart. It's starts with social distancing and that allows us to bend the curve. Make sure we have the medical capacity treat people who get sick and not just from the corona virus but also from other everyday illnesses and a governor Scott was doing a really good job in Advocating with clarity. Why that's important and we're seeing success in Vermont about ending the curve. Then the second thing is if you're going to focus on the public health and a sustainable recovery. We have to have tested and right now. Vermont has enough testing the Doctor. Levin this morning but the nation certainly doesn't end. The federal government should be playing a major role in making certain that all our states have the testing. They need in their spent a failure on the part. My view of the trump administration taking that to the level serious required. We did get twenty five billion dollars. Package that under the vote on today. Forecasting was part of the proposal. I made my reopen American. But then second you have to do what's called contact tracing and that has a five test positive then the public health folks we would like Haier America Court people Almost like a Peace Corps. They would say Peter. Who did you see where you bet? And then they would contact those folks intest them and if somebody tested positive then the next step is quarantine that person would go. Fourteen days separated from others in order not to transmit the virus. In part of my reopen America. Act would actually help the states pay for that but also helping individuals tested positive. And then it's going to suffer income loss because they can't work with a little with a statement because I want to make certain that soaks are encouraged to test not just for their own benefit but for the benefit of their neighbors and their families In people fearful it if they get a positive test and they lose their income they may resist testing to the detriment of all themselves in all of us. So those are the things that have to happen and in the context of that Public Health Committee where you're putting health. I you have the best opportunities open up the economy sooner and more sustainably and I I think you see a variation in how governors are approaching. The Governor Scott from my perspective is approaching that is based on science in Public Health And that's the way that I think we need to go the way. President trump is approaches. Where there is a function of the federal government has to do and that is designed to test providing the funds in the testing four testing testing equipment. pre concentrating on the development of a vaccine reinforcing the need for the social distancing that's federal the implementation is at the state level and to some degree but but the back and forth in Iraq. The president taking us one of the questions. I have testing. Of course there really are two different types of tests that people talk about one is the the test to see whether you have the corona virus in that that certainly was What folks have been clamoring for for much of this winter and early spring and And then you know the question is. Are they available to whom and so on but then down the road a little bit? There's there's The antibody test to indicate Perhaps some degree of You know have already had it. got immunity or or that kind of thing And Are we focusing on these types of tests? Are we doing so equally? Should we do so equally? Your was the priority. I mean. Sort them out a little bit for us. Well first of all that extension example on day of a how they help expert question. The politicians shouldn't be decided which the right test for politicians should be doing. Just deciding yes as a public policy. We need tests in the chest. Should be designed by are the experts that we have in In in the CDC and there's the the second test is about this question of whether if you have the antibodies then you're quote immune and again. That's not a political decision. That's a medical decision. And I think the evidence on that is somewhat of being debated by the medical folks. If you have that antibody are you in fact really meal and if you are that's great because you can get in to Work AND BE REASSURED THAT. You're not getting second be. You're not gonNA make anybody but I'll leave it to the medical experts. Say whether we have that test yet it would definitely be a good test to have. Yeah I mean that's And I'm not one hundred ensure the degree to which test is being a you know what the hopes are for tests that will actually give somebody a completely clean bill of health at some point. I mean I think that would be the Holy Grail. The Holy Grail here if you could actually get a certificate saying hey. I've been tested. I have these antibodies. I'd I'm not GonNa be a Cobra. Nineteen patient or carrier Right on your for your free to move about in in the world and not worry about it but until then that's And that's down the road. Some I guess so right turns and while the ability for the federal government to keep coming up with money to keep the social security system going is Michael Michael Slater was talking about And and it kind of keep any any semblance of just economic activity happening in the country. How how? How many months do we have that this could can continue to happen on this sort of economic life support now. None of us know. We're totally uncharted territory. And they just think about it in one week you know when it became clear that this was a pandemic that had profound impact on United States. We had two people who never agreed on anything a Mitch. Mcconnell Nancy Pelosi agree to a two point two trillion dollar spending package and that's an indication of how we're in the world and that world was so forceful saying you know the the power of this virus and the consensus acknowledgement of the threat to human life that it posed and the necessity taken this extreme action of social distancing that had the collateral consequences of really producing in in a few weeks twenty four million unemployed. Americans that is huge so any can predict where this is going to end up. I I can't what I know is we've got to act big to try to help folks through this economically. Alright well Congressman Peter. Welcome afraid we're about out of time but I really appreciate you. Taking some time with meat is warning and checking in with us. It's always good talking with you and I certainly hope that you and the other members of Congress can figure this stuff out. 'cause I agree. Uncharted TERRITORY FOR SURE. Thank you so much.

He was doing with Ukraine as far as saying that they had to cross Republican. Money it for us to be as president. I was so what he's doing. Make sure that we're going to give to a country that they're going to root out corruption and if there there was an American official his family volcanic eruption he certainly has the obligation to find out about it to take action. Now factor drove items for president doesn't mean accepted from any type of investigation and if it helps the president politically fine. It's the second day. Meaning as he was carrying out his duty and to impeaching a president for carrying out his duty and it's supposed to be a high crime even to begin with it might have high crime so it's really It's GonNa hurt the country. It's going under work the institution and I think it's going to backfire on the Democrats. Excuse elections is it a high crime for Vice President Vidon if he knew what his son was doing if you knew what his son is showing. It's a record high crime but it was certainly as he. He's allowing conflict of interest. I should've should've done in that situation. They stepped down from the position that president gave him whereas about of Making sure that corruption was being rooted out and Ukraine. He was basically our I'm void to Ukraine came with corruption. And if his son was in one under the Companies which is said extremely corrupt and getting paid and drove off money when he basically had no experience in Ukraine. No experience orients with energy didn't speak the language and really didn't Ten million eating so he got six hundred thousand dollars a year for this. which isn't a bad deal to get yourself but you know? I'm sure the only reason he got it was because father was the vice president and these and the Joe Biden. WHO's in charge of worked with Ukranian actually going with corruption so no show by a step down from that position? If it's someone who's going to say then Joe Biden and had an obligation to step down as far as that responsibility. Stay on as vice president but not if Ukraine is just too much of a direct conflict of interest Chris's family you should have known that it certainly appears of evil and So he really is no one. You know the reason to complain about this at all and again if this is the other way round somehow Donald Trump's fan we was involved in Russia and I mean you think for a moment home is that Democrats wouldn't be Russia's white information the add on includes did that in two thousand sixteen when the company that high they hired an overseas British intelligence agent. Who got information for Russia's Helmsman's About down trump that we now all today she was false. Awesome so The only collusion with Russia was with the Clinton campaign and to me President if this was donald trump being investigated person investigating recall hero because president trump process can find to be investigated Suleymanov. He's going to be impeached. which is terrible terrible shower process? Assess the other big item. That happened this week is attacked the Isis stronghold and we got their leader and we also got the number two leader. What what what? What do you say about that SAC? And the killing of Alba Daddy was. This is a tremendous victory to United States. It was a shattering defeat for Isis. LISTEN TO ISIS continue. Isis would still be there but they divorce thousands of fighters because of trump administration going after and now losing their leaders certainly going to throw them off the game. They're going to be of course for a while He was there an actress actual military but also their psychological and religious leader. So this is a real blow to isis and also so then fact we got the number two guy has to be demoralizing to Isis. And they gotta be confused show and during that time that we should really go all out to try to get you have to really keep off foot on. That's really really crush some extent we can but it's It's too bad that ever crats and the media do you president president trump credit for what he did. I mean it was an amazing amazing results and It was just They try to pick holes it if they try to de-legitimize if it certainly to downplay it not make it out for the great Great events there wasn't stark events and all Americans should be proud of Donald trump president trump. Yes in the end of the week. A few days ago decided that I'm moving to Florida. What I'd say you about that well understand?

We better get a friendly reception and he'll get Treated much better by the The Governor in Florida around the census us and it's just a whole different atmosphere up here. I mean The New York City politicians they treat enemy leaders but they let president trump and we should be proud of president. United States. Living in Manhattan got real resin to somebody who will have to stop by his trump tower. Is he live there from the get sixty fifth floor was no. It's so bad it's too bad. He's leaving state but I can understand why he's leaving and He's Blue Hill interim tau since he was elected. And I hope you at least gives us Bob In there anyway is starting to revisit every now and sort of Eaton's restaurants I'm says from tile but now that that's too bad and it's Again it's really reflects badly on May. The Governor City Council always politicians who just took cheap shots at president. Trump is celebrating. What do you agree with them or not? Being proud of the fact that a New York Through you know through through one in Queens living in Manhattan. His father was elephant in Brooklyn. All Right hit oh totally or Shitty guy and They treated him like he was from enemies. So it's really says more about them but Again should suppressing the best in Florida right. I was actually willing to this week at a meeting about an hour spiritual he's talking about. The book is even say a word about the fact that he was moving down to holding going out and You know fulltime roses out so Anyway he was With all of this after say this was the day before for the impeachment. Vote and a few of the guys with our very strong salad and he's looking to the fight And he's seen me for Real L.. He's just ready to fight. This is long hot as he has totally woods.

It's really an attack on whole system of teacher resources to be a weapon Hughes. And they'll either. Rarest instance not because of a phone call which is subject to various interpretations with the President.

Drug costs push some to ration medicine as U.S. unveils plan to import
"Let's go to Greg Marshall Don. WHO's the executive director Revis A._A._R._p.? Vermont and get this conversation started right off <hes> he is <hes> talking to us today mainly about <hes> legislation in Washington Washington in the Congress which would be <hes> help to <hes> straighten out the problems that a lot of folks see with prescription drugs in the cost of prescription drugs and Greg. I I walked me to the program. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks for having me Dave and tell me a little bit about <hes> this legislation and <hes> where it is in the process and what the prospects are was sure. I mean first of all I just want to remind your viewers may be something that they don't need to be reminded. They've gone to the pharmacy anytime in the last five ten or fifteen years but we of course pay the highest drug prices of any <hes> industrialized country in the world brand brand name drugs continue to skyrocket and price and really exceed the general rate of inflation year in and year out and sort of a statistic for Vermont others to to remember at the average annual cost of prescription drug treatments increased almost sixty percent between two thousand twelve and two thousand seventeen while the annual income Vermont is on the increase about eleven and a half percent so that just sort of sets the stage for what people already know if they go by prescription drugs that they're incredibly expensive <hes> for A._A._R._p.. Team members and for retirees were living on a fixed income. They are forced to make some really painful choices in you know Kennedy heat the house in the wintertime it. Can You buy the insulin that you need. If you're a diabetic making choices between food and medicine rent and medicine <hes> these are things. We don't think anybody in this country ought to have to do but certainly we don't feel that way we <hes> we feel very strongly about <hes> seniors in our own state right now there does seem to be frankly and perhaps surprisingly some some movement on prescription drug reform in Congress <hes> this is an issue that president trump talked about in the campaign <hes> and has continued to talk about in a pretty forceful way just last year Florida <hes> one of the biggest states in the nation one of the states that have the largest number of retirees Peste reimportation bill that the president accident has instructed H._H._S. to figure out how to execute <hes> and so there's been some stuff going on in the state level but very recently the Senate finance committee on a bipartisan and level <hes> which we don't see very often either passed a prescription drug package <hes> out of the Senate which includes looking at ways to cap prescription option drug prices looks at ways to get <hes> generics to the market faster <hes> and also <hes> with some amendments potentially allowing <hes> secretary terrier negotiation four people on Medicare so that you can so bulk purchasing Ken can be done the house <hes> with leadership frankly of <hes> our congressman Congressman Peter well-chosen influential member of the committee that is <hes> undertaking <hes> the work in house should have a package announced in early September <hes> and <hes> <hes> then they can rectify those two things. We think that there's a window sort of between post Labor Day you know in Thanksgiving to get this done what we are concerned about. Is it goes much longer than that. We are firmly entrenched in in a in a political year a presidential political year and not much will happen so there's a short window <hes> mm-hmm but we think there might be for the first time in decades significant progress on this issue now I I heard that criticism about this legislation which which is <hes> it is said that it it still does not allow negotiations directly between the government and pharmaceutical companies about the prices of drugs but it sounds like there there. Maybe a slight opening. Tell me about that well. <hes> <hes> Senator Debbie Stephen Ow of <hes> of Michigan offered an amendment and I think we'll run through the appropriations process process which is a way to do that <hes> which would allow <hes> the secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate much like <hes> <hes> much like we do for our veterans <hes> and N._B._A.. Able to bulk purchase drugs for the tens of millions of people are on Medicare. I mean this is a pretty simple thing to do and there's a reason why people people drive to colchester go to COSCO because if you buy you know a package of fifteen rolls of toilet paper it's going to be a lot cheaper than buying to somewhere so it's <hes> it's simple math and it's the way that every other industrialized country in the world does it <hes> and there's simply no reason why we can't so <hes> aubanel amendment if it is able to move would would offer that <hes> that new negotiating power <hes> which would make a huge difference between cost downs for people on Medicare care and the <hes> the prescription drug legislation that is pending right now you. You're saying that it needs to happen this year. I mean if it doesn't <hes> there's there's no chance that it would happen next year and it just because of the political years you put it. Yeah I mean I think if you look at the history and <hes> Dave Kerr this for her a long long time you rarely see much congressional action during presidential during sort of a year leading up to a presidential election <hes> members of Congress Congress all of whom are up not all senators members of Congress the PR m people running for president therefore don't have to be on the record for any specific votes they can talk and more platitudes kids <hes> so we think that there is a short window here between sort of right after Labor Day right before Thanksgiving <hes> to get this done the house package will be out in early September <hes> they can conference with the Senate and there can <hes> there can be something to vote on <hes> before that happens and I think frankly <hes> the president needs to continue to keep talking about why he thinks issue's important. He keeps telling Americans that they're being ripped off by the drug companies we at A._A._R._p.. Agree <hes> what we're GONNA need his leadership Senate leadership leadership and House leadership to get this done seems though that all this talk about impeachment could interfere year I mean the president earlier on this year was saying that that the investigations have to stop if any legislation is going to happen <hes>. Do you have a fear there well. I mean I think that's you know <hes> like with everything in Washington. <hes> it it sort of strikes us as an unpredictable day every day. We don't quite know what's going to happen. Although we do we do know what the president said about this issue not only <hes> as as president but also during the campaign during his last campaign so we have. I'm talking about this issue. Americans Purdham talk about this issue <hes> so again we're we're. We're very hopeful <hes> <hes> A._A._R._p.. Or folks here we can't in control what happens on the impeachment process or any other thing that might happen on any given sort of crazy day in Washington <hes> but this actually looks like it it's possible and this this is coming out of a congress in in a political environment where frankly nothing is getting done so <hes>. This may be something that a lot of people can hang their hat on yeah. I I don't know I I I suspect that that <hes> this gridlock that you predict will be happening next year. We've already seen a lot of it and then not election years <hes> especially in the last last few pardon my skepticism but I I do wonder sometimes whether anything you'd get done in the current environment
