Trump and Biden debate their climate and environmental policies
"A lot at Thursday's debate. There was this telling exchange about climate change. Would you close the have a transition from their own industry? Yes. It is a big statement, President Trump again boosted the fossil fuel industries contributing to global warming. Joe Biden is campaigning on a plan for Net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. NPR's Jeff Brady has more on his $2 trillion proposal. Joe Biden's climate plan is ambitious for an economy is big and complex as the United States, but even those connected to fossil fuel industry say it may be doable. Scott Siegal with the energy focused law firm. Bracewell says the plan is pragmatic and includes both regulations and incentives for the growing list of companies focused on using cleaner energy in the future. One thing that makes Biden's approach somewhat comfortable is that you can sketch out that linear commitment to additional resource is to achieve these objectives, which I think most people in business, believe me. Are going to be the future anyway. The country has one example of meeting an ambitious climate goal. The Obama administration's clean power plan aimed to cut emissions from power plants, about a third by 2030. Even though court challenges stopped the plan from going into effect, the country is ahead of schedule. David Doniger is with NRDC Action Fund, The political arm of the natural resource is defense counsel. The power sector is already undergoing changes that have reduced their emissions by more than 30% 10 years ahead of the target that the Obama administration thought was aggressive. In 2015, a big part of that was the collapse of the coal industry. Coal fired power plants continue to go out of business, replaced with cheaper natural gas and renewable energy. Still, the bite and climate plan faces significant hurdles. It relies on technologies that haven't been developed or may not be commercially viable. That's why the plan includes $400 billion over a decade for research. With the economic hit from the Corona virus pandemic. Biden's campaign updated the plan this summer. It includes billions of dollars to hire people for things like plugging abandoned mines and building electric vehicle charging stations. Steph Feldman, with the bite and campaign says the plan also focuses on environmental justice. 40% of the benefit of those investments go to community, the color and low income communities that have been disproportionately harmed by pollution and the effects of climate change. This is especially important to the most vocal climate change activists. While Biden has distanced himself from the green new deal, it is popular, especially with the left wing of his party. Jenny Marino, Zimmer with 3 50 actions as this's thie strongest plan yet from a Democratic presidential nominee, the Biden campaign has committed to doing some really great things like ending leasing of fossil fuels on public lands. We'd like to see them go further and create a true phase out for the entire fossil fuel mystery over Of course of the next decade. Biden's plan has a longer timeline for a transition and includes a role for fossil fuels with offsets and carbon capture. Amy Myers Jaffe manages the climate policy Labatt Tufts University and says overall, this is a credible plan for addressing climate change. The Biden campaign has listed the right things. But the difference between listing things and implementing those things is a big difference. If Biden is elected, he'll likely need a Democratic Congress willing to pass laws and allocate money

The Future Of The Affordable Care Act In A Supreme Court Without Ginsburg
"The fight over who will replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be fierce because supreme. Court decisions are so high stakes among the highest decisions on health care and abortion, and this morning we're GonNa talk about both starting with healthcare the quarterback in session on October fifth several state attorneys. General are challenging the affordable care act they want it thrown? Tens of millions of people would lose Medicaid benefits and more than one hundred million people would lose protections for pre existing conditions. So very high stakes duly rovner of Kaiser, health news is with us now. Good Morning Julie. Good morning where do things stand with the affordable care act? Well, things are tenuous Congressman 2017 failed to repeal and replace law but it did eliminate the penalty for not having insurance as part of its big year end tax bill just a couple of months. Later, a group of Republican attorneys general and governor sued they said that without the penalty, the law was now unconstitutional. That's because the law would they say was only upheld by the Supreme Court in two thousand twelve because the penalty was a constitutional exercise of Congress's taxing power. So no tax no affordable care act. Now, most legal experts didn't think a lot of this case including. Some scholars who had argued to strike crippled the law in cases that went to the court in two, thousand twelve, and again in two thousand fifteen. But a federal judge in Texas bought the argument in late twenty eighteen and in two thousand, nine, thousand, nine, hundred appeals court panel in New Orleans agreed although it's case back to the lower court to see if the whole really had to go democratic attorneys general who are now defending the law because the trump administration is not we're worried about leaving the helpful in limbo for as long as that would take, which could be years they asked the Supreme Court to step in right away the court. But. It didn't agree to decided before the election. Okay. So without Justice Ginsburg, what the possibilities for how the court might decide this case? Well, there are several if they're still eight justices, it could be afforded four tie that would mean that the lower court ruling would stand, but it might just apply in that circuit. So Texas Louisiana. Mississippi or the court could ask that the case be re argued when there's a ninth justice, the court could also decide that the. Individual Mandate the requirement for people to have insurance even though with no penalty is unconstitutional, but the rest of law might be able to survive It's worth mentioning that even limited decision could strike down protections for pre existing conditions a very popular because those are considered tightly linked to the mandate or the court could strike down the entire law which seems unlikely with only eight justices but you never know and possible of president trump manages to fill the seat right away. What happens if the Supreme Court does strike down the entire law? Well, the word most health experts I've talked about this is chaos not only could more than twenty million Americans immediately lose insurance coverage popular provision like letting young adults stay on their parent's health plan guaranteeing coverage of pre existing conditions expanded prescription drug, and preventive benefits for. Seniors. On Medicare would all be eliminated it would also impact healthcare providers, hospitals, and insurers and doctors who's the way they are bill in are paid is intimately tied in to the law. So the court hearing the case in November, but we likely won't get a decision until next year anyway. So if Joe Biden is elected, could he drop the case? No because it's actually not the administration's case it's the Republican attorneys general but a Democratic Congress under Democratic president could make the case mood they could put the penalty back at a dollar they could eliminate the rest of the language about the mandate. Or they could pass a bill saying the change in two thousand seventeen was not intended to impact the rest of the law. All of those however would be big fights on their own.

Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress
"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.

Book alleges Trump called for shooting immigrants at border
"I was fascinated with this story story of president trump apparently at a meeting now this is according to the hill and the New York Times New New York Times reported this and the hill included it in in on their website as well but president trump suggested having being illegal immigrants shot in their legs during the March meeting with the White House advisers in the Oval Office. Supposedly the The Times report is based on interviews with more than a dozen White House administration officials involved in that week of meetings and apparently this stuff is going to be in some new book called from Michael Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis border wars inside trump's assault on immigration. It comes out on the eighth so next week. It doesn't sound Bassett. All know doesn't doesn't border wars inside trump's assault bolt on immigration assault. Yeah maybe on immigration not illegal immigration mind you so the AIDS told the The Times that trump's suggested to advisers during the Oval Office meeting we should do is we. We should shoot him in the leg to slow amount. Don't I know it's true but it sounds like him doesn't not I I could hear him say like just shoot him. In the leg is what I mean. Yeah just shoot him in the leg would not slow him down. Why can't we we do that. Officials who spoke to the Times also recalled know what's next that often suggested suggested we fortify the border wall with essentially a moat. Oh stocked with snakes and alligators uh-huh. I mean we just we dig. A water filled trench. We'll put some alligators snakes it then if they cross they get eating and and if this is shocking to you to hear me overton window here. It's not like he said. Let's put out there at the border right here and say right land mines or anything like that. He's just saying it's it's very medieval. I mean I don't know if this note. We don't know if this I really would. He said a lot of people are saying he did and it does kind of sound like I'm sure and a moat might be pretty I might a what a front it's been suggested jokingly oh kingly by many sure probably including us but he also apparently wanted the wall electrified with spikes spikes on top pierce human flesh. Maybe oh my bad you. We read the story would advisers told trump. Some of his suggestions were illegal. He got pissed. You're making me look like an idiot. I ran on this. It's my the issue well so there you go some some interesting ideas on how to get a hold of get some control at the border shoot him in the leg. Okay create a moat and fill it with alligators K. or just a liquid electrify the wall and put spikes that compares human flesh at the top of them. That'd be harder party to get over the top. Okay you know it's past ask Democratic Congress. He says that the make sure the fence. This electrified fence is powered by green energy right and then. Maybe they'll be on board. Lord and everybody's happy sounds like a fun read though yeah does it does fun. I don't know I'm not totally on board with it right but again. It's a concept yes. It's a it's a starting place. We haven't Seen No. We're not going to get the mode with the alligators electrified fence and the spikes go through human flesh. Here's an idea though let's do something that's the table. Let's at least put the wall up. Maybe that's what he was doing. These meetings is overton window in them and say okay. We won't all right. We won't shoot him in the threaten this plan lend maybe maybe actually just get a wall fund the wall and we won't have to shoot him in the leg now. You don't fund the wall where to shoot them in the late. Yeah that's right. That's you got three. We days come up with a different plan or we're going forward with the shoot. 'em. At least at least make him think that right. I'm in favor of him doing that. Reagan did the Gorbachev Right. Yep Do that to the wall. We got this star wars system and we can shoot down all all of your missiles so you might as well not even fire a mattis you might as well not even deploy him anymore.

"The president about the probe whether he is serving his back channel to the president or his lawyers about the probe. Whether he's doing anything to fear with the probe. Mr. Whittaker needs to understand that he will be called to answer in any role that he plays. We'll be exposed to the public. We we don't want there to be any ambiguity about that. Are you convinced that he's constitutionally L? Eligible to hold the position. I'm not convinced at all there are serious constitutional arguments that as a principal officer. He cannot be appointed to this position. I think that's certainly the right policy answer. Also may be the answer demand by the constitution. Curious what she thought of voter reaction to the Muller pro our exit poll, we asked about them their feelings in the Muller investigation. Forty six percent disapprove that is a very familiar number to our viewers right now. Forty six percent is the president's job rating, the the number of the Republican vote. So I think we know what that core vote is. But only forty one percent approved of the Muller investigation, does political opinion how much should it impact? What you do in the Democratic Congress these days. Well, political public opinion always affects us in in one degree or another. But I will say this having watched Muller's ratings over time. The one thing that we see is around the time. He produces indictments around the time that he produces convictions the support for his investigation goes up the long. After the lapse between indictments the more his ratings, go down. So what we're seeing? Now, I think is merely the lull because in the period leading up to the mid terms he properly took no action. But I think when he issues his report, or if they're further indictments, you will see public confidence in his work once again rise, there is I know you probably want to get the house intelligence committee's investigation back on track after your. After the uneasy relationship between you and who will be now the ranking member Devin newness, but I've heard a lot of investigations at Democrats wanted to you talked about in another interview that's going to air tonight about investigating the president's. What was he doing with Amazon and the postal service? The incoming House Judiciary committee, chairman was caught on the Acela. Talking about how to investigate the cavenaugh issue. Obviously the Muller probe is going to be a part of this. How do you prioritize what to investigate and what point do you do too much investigative? Well, this is going to be very important. Not not just in terms of which investigations out to go forward which to go forward. I, but also our strongest purpose here is to put forth a positive agenda. We don't want that lost. In a flurry investigator worried that they're so much talk about investigations that actually the idea of dealing with pre existing conditions is getting lost. Well, we have to make sure it doesn't get lost. You know, that's really the first priority for us. It's the reason people voted to put us in majority as to put forward a positive Genta. And let's face it. The investigations are sexy. They're interesting. You bring witnesses before the click lights people tune in the legislative process is less. So it's much less. Matic. But but nonetheless in terms of importance, they American people making sure that they can provide for their families that they can get health care. They can keep their healthcare that has to be priority number one. But we are going to need to ruthlessly prioritize on the Intel committee which investigated threads we go down.

"So we can't really get count on them. But maybe the vote will we'll do do something. Anyway, to give us hope that we can bring that back, but on international level. We just do not know what the result and the consequences of this man being president is going to be it's very very up in the air. It's unknown. And that is a very. Scary thing because as much as we thought, you know, many of us said for years that, you know, hey, do you be the policeman of the world not a good position to be in being the world's only superpower, blah, blah, blah. You know, that that this is it it's putting the country in an immoral position. It empowers, you know, all kinds of terrible consequences around the world. But you don't care that up with nothing to replace it. I mean, the idea was always, okay, we need to create new institutions. We've gotta find new alliances. We've got to build on, you know, some kind of of global understanding you can't just walk away. And that's basically what Trump has done and not only as he walked away in terms of, you know, giving any kind of of of respect toward the international order that had been built after World War Two. But you know, he's also just sort of joined the petty tyrant club. You know, he might as well be due territory or I think he's going. To be a lot like both in our. I mean, these are these are the kinds of ugly, you know, sort of sort of, you know, petty sort of international relations that lead to wars. I mean, that's the sort of thing that that he's doing, and you know, we have to keep our eyes on on that all the time because we don't know where the chips are gonna fall with that. It's very very dangerous. And here we have him, you know, modeling for the rest of the world, the United States of America be, you know, doing things like, you know, saying the new rules of engagement are shoot at rock-throwers. And and we're seeing the results instantly place like Nigeria. I mean, this is really this is really stunning extremely dangerous. It's one reason why you know, the congress they can't do a lot. But they do have a voice. And if they do if we do manage to take back the house, and you know, I guess there's a long shot that they might take the Senate unlikely. But you never know that suddenly there's another force within the United States that can be you know, you. It's voice to somehow project out to the world. Hey, look, this guy does not have unlimited power. He doesn't or shouldn't. But under the Republicans. Of course, he has there's been zero oversight. And if anything they've been working as his accomplices in the congress, I'm not as. I I'm not as a well. Look, I think it's obviously a Democratic Congress mitigates what Trump does. But in terms of the message sent to the rest of the world. I'm not sure you get. I don't think there's any takes back sees on this one. Do you know what I mean? I think like the the the the the message to the world is I just don't know that we ever regain that type of, you know, even the allusion of that type of moral authority, you know, and I don't want to overstate you know, I say that with all the caveats that are involved in that. Right. But it just makes it a harder argument for, you know, there's a reason why bin Salman is is is really gonna just be okay. In Saudi Arabia in you know, another three or four weeks.
