"east nashville donelson" Discussed on The Lead with Jake Tapper

"Handling it. Specifically when it comes to the number of testing kits obviously. Cdc had difficulty coming up with an amicable testing kit. They have testing kits tens of thousands of them overseas in places like South Korea. What is the problem in the United States? And how concerned are you well? That's a multilateral question so I'll tell you the concern for me as an emergency physician who when I leave here tonight. I'm going to go to work. I'm going to see patients overnight in the emergency department and the good news is compared to the last time I had a chance to speak on. Cnn two days ago we have testing now we can send those locally here in Washington Washington DC. Our Department of Health has has that capability now and that's great. That's just a sign. That the the the trickle down the normal dissemination of testing from the CDC to our local health departments is is making progress. Now obviously the ideal situation will be when our own labs in our own hospitals can run those tests in two hours and giving the results just like a rapid strep test or a around the flu tests like we have right now. And that's coming where there's some delays. There's so many things that go into it. It's tough to say and if we're comparing it to another country is you know we have a certain standard of quality here and I think that we're also trying to make sure that our quality is as high as it can be quickly Trump today said the Obama administration made the decision on testing the turn out to be detrimental to what we're doing. We did that decision a few days ago. So testing can take place in a much more accurate in rapid fashion. Do you know anything about him. You start to say Jake. I don't know what he's referring to and clearly the FDA could have gotten ahead of that problem. You know go well at least a month ago in January right. They put the travel restriction in. And so you know that as many of saying that was time to prepare part of it is preparing the test kits and getting the regulatory situation in line for that and frankly I just don't know what the rule is that the referring to that Obama put in place. They might have put in place for a good reason and this needs to be adjusted. All right thanks so much. Dr Emmanuel and Dr Phillips Appreciate Your being here a controversial abortion case making its way to Supreme Court today why conservatives are accusing Chuck Schumer of threatening justices cavenaugh and Gorsuch and Schumer's response to those accusations. That's next the wait is over coming to H. L. N. All new episodes of forensic files follow the evidence and crack the case forensic foils to Sundays at ten only on H. L. N. Welcome to hop one game show. It's just hot sauces questions and eventually some hardware. It's possible for your eyeballs to sweat. Sean Evans hosts hot ones. The game show a new series on TV. I want to tell you I wanNA tell you cavanaugh. You have released the wind and you will pay the price in our national lead. Republicans are accusing Senate minority leader. Chuck Schumer threatening to conservative Supreme Court. Justices who heard a controversial abortion case this morning. Schumer spokesman says that Senator Schumer was just talking about political blowback for Republicans. All of this bigger picture is over. The debate about whether Louisiana can require doctors who perform abortions to have to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals advocates for the law. Say It's meant to increase public safety critic saying it is a thinly veiled attempt to restrict abortion and if the Louisiana law takes effect. Only one doctor in the state would be able to perform abortions. I'm joined now by. Cnn's Joan Biskupic Joan four years ago. The Supreme Court struck down a similar law in taxes. Back Vans Justice Kennedy was on the court. He voted with the liberal majority. So why are they hearing the case? Now is it just because Kennedy's been replaced by a more conservative justice? Well that's certainly the backdrop but what brought it up immediately was the fact that a regional appeals court upheld the Louisiana Law minimizing the Supreme Court's. Two Thousand Sixteen decision in the Texas case which involved a very similar law so the justice is essentially had to take this case. Are they could've summarily reversed with the fifth circuit. Did but instead they took it up and certainly as you saw from the atmosphere at the Supreme Court today both sides are very anxious about what will happen with these two new trump appointees and the main discussion that went on in the courtroom over an hour worth of oral arguments was how different this Louisiana law possibly be from Texas and will the Supreme Court be in any kind of position to suddenly undermine its precedent from just four years ago and uphold this law if the Supreme Court rules in favor of the Louisiana Law. Does that set a table for a situation where basically states will be able to restrict and regulate abortion to the degree that it is essentially illegal or almost illegal undermining Roe v Wade okay. It would undermine Roe v Wade which is the nineteen seventy-three landmark that made abortion legal nationwide and undermine the nineteen ninety-two case. That re affirmed that but just so our viewers. Don't get the wrong idea. Abortion will not suddenly be illegal nationwide but this will be an invitation to more state regulations and right now the regulations were talking about are on physicians and clinics. What Could Happen. Is that states might try more ban type. Regulations that would outlaw abortion at certain points and that would become the ultimate test of Robie Wade right now. What's at stake is sort of access especially for poor women and women in rural areas? Who would have to travel so far to find a physician? Who would meet the kind of criteria? We're talking about In the Louisiana Law so it it has real world consequences. But it's not going to immediately overturn Roe v Wade and as you know well Jake. It's GONNA come down to Chief Justice John Roberts once Anthony Kennedy left the court in two thousand eighteen that middle position on abortion is the chiefs. And let me just tell you the chief? Justice has never in his life struck down an abortion regulation. This might be the first time or it might not be continued. Good Biscuit thank you so much appreciate it.
