"energy commerce committee" Discussed on The Breakdown with NLW

"The app from the Google Play or Apple App Store today. Abra, conquer crypto. The breakdown is sponsored by FTX. FTX is the safe regulated way to buy and sell Bitcoin and other digital assets. Trade crypto with up to 85% lower fees than top competitors. FTX U.S. is also the only leading exchange that supports both Ethereum and Solana NFTs. You can trade NFTs with no gas on FTX U.S., and gases subsidize when you withdraw off the platform. Help support the breakdown and visit FTX U.S. today. That's FTX U.S.. All right, next up, let's talk about the Mnuchin files. TLDR coindesk used the freedom of information act to get a dump of about 250 pages of former treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin's email correspondence, specifically relating to crypto. There are a few interesting nuggets. First is Jared Kushner, the president's son in law, who is more involved in foreign policy, was quietly a booster for digital currencies. On May 29th, 2019, he suggested that a group come together to have a brainstorm about a U.S. digital dollar. He linked in that email to a post from former Y Combinator head and OpenAI CEO and world coin guys, Sam Altman, where Altman argued that the U.S. government couldn't stop crypto but could, quote, create the winner. Kushner seemed disposed to the idea of a Central Bank digital currencies, saying quote, my sense is it could make sense and also be something that could ultimately change the way we pay out entitlements, as well as saving us a ton in waste fraud and also in transaction costs. Kushner obviously was ahead of his time on this one given how big a deal CBDCs would become the following year, especially in the wake of COVID-19. In October of 2020, the Ukraine government asked the treasury for help when U.S. exchanges stopped servicing Ukrainians. They got no response, but Bill Hughes, a lawyer at consensus and former Department of Justice lawyer tweeted, I suspect one of the most interesting parts of the story will be the most overlooked. And that's Ukraine complaining about U.S. exchanges bailing on it because concerns they would violate sanctions imposed on Crimea. This dynamic persists. The other interesting moment was in the last months of Mnuchin's role when he was trying to put strict new rules around crypto wallets. Now, the timing of this was rushed, the rules would have required exchanges to collect a ton of info and it would have undermined people's privacy around their own wallets. In these documents, we get a view of the arguments from legal counsel that flooded into Mnuchin. The blockchain association retained outside counsel and Kirkland and Ellis lawyer Paul Clement wrote a letter to Mnuchin saying, quote, the notion that stakeholders could meaningfully engage with a rule that touches on more than 24 separate subjects in such a highly truncated period would be doubtful even in the ordinary course. Thus what purports to be a reporting requirement may well operate as a de facto ban. What makes this interesting to me is that it was an early inflection point for the blockchain lobby. That lobby has grown stronger as the need has grown stronger over the course of the last year. Certainly it was strengthened, for example, by the fight around the infrastructure Bill. But this was a real warning shot when this happened. We've had many more sense and we'll have many more in the months and years to come. Speaking of the regulatory world, the U.S. House and Senate agriculture committee has sent a letter to the chair of the CFTC, requesting more info on digital asset marketplaces. The letter gets into the CFTC's history with crypto, including its thinking around ether and BTC as commodities, it reiterates the CFTC's power to bring enforcement actions against digital asset marketplaces through the commodity exchange act, it details specific risks such as arguing that there has been an uptick in losses from scams and also highlighting DeFi as a risk. Letter says there are still questions around who is responsible for monitoring DeFi markets for fraud and manipulation, safeguarding customer funds and ensuring parties meet their obligation to one another. We're also concerned about any DeFi protocols offering derivatives contracts on unregistered exchanges. The subject of a recent CFTC enforcement action. From there, the letter lays out 8 questions to help Congress understand how they can better address these questions and more. The official Twitter handle of the agricultural committee followed up, saying, more Americans are trading digital assets, but there's still a lot we don't know about the risks. We are calling on CFTC to help us further understand the benefits and risks presented by digital asset markets and related emerging technologies. The take that I liked best about this came from Jake stravinsky, the head of policy at the blockchain association. He wrote, the CFTC has always taken a thoughtful and constructive approach to crypto, rightly acknowledging its benefits while honestly assessing its risks and above all making sure the industry and technology can flourish in the USA. It's great to see Senate Democrats asking the CFTC to lead. Now, another member of the blockchain association, David grimaldi, the head of government relations, also tweeted about a different congressional action around crypto as well. Grimaldi tweets breaking the interest in all things crypto and blockchain is stretching across Congress and will no longer reside solely in the congressional committees that exist to oversee the financial industry. Moments ago, the energy commerce committee announced a mining hearing for one 20. Entitled cleaning up cryptocurrency, the energy impacts of blockchains, the committee's subcommittee on oversight and investigations plans to explore the impact of crypto mining on power grids, the ability of minors to utilize solar wind and other alternative sources of energy. There is a strong likelihood that this hearing will be a civil and primitive as the FSC Dems hearing, which was mostly memorable for its lack of drama bomb throwing crypto fear and demagoguing. The subcommittee wants to hear the as yet unannounced witnesses discuss energy consumption, how to moderate energy use in times of crisis EG deep freeze temperatures, how hydropower can be moderated during droughts and more. Witness list to come. The increased interest in crypto from Congress committees is here to stay. So not everyone, I will say shares grimaldi's confidence that this is going to be civil and probative. Many are concerned that this is going to be a big chance for grandstanding and flamethrowing and demagoguery, exactly the things that he said it won't be. I think our first indication of that will be who is actually on the witness list. But I will say it's hard for me to imagine any scenario in which having a hearing, especially a hearing that allows Congress people to hear directly from the industry itself doesn't do more to dispel notions around energy that are largely thrown around in the media and in the popular consciousness, then make them worse. Knowledge, education, information, the chance to discuss even if it comes with a side of demagoguery is better than the alternative. Finally, let's move over to markets to wrap up. First of all, there has been a general rally. I discussed a little bit yesterday that risk assets have been coming back since Powell's softened his stance on quantitative tightening. However, there's another interesting dimension of the story, which is China. From Reuters, Chinese shares rose on Wednesday as slower than expected December producer inflation made room for more monetary easing in the world's second largest economy. With new energy vehicle makers advancing on data showing strong sales momentum. Basically, the idea here is that China is seeing inflation numbers come in lower than expectations, exactly what we're looking for in the U.S. and because of that they've been empowered to keep monetary policy really easy. When all then, of course, is on this saying, while everyone is focusing on what the U.S. is doing, China is starting to stimulate a bit after a tight 2021, setting up a potential west to east theme for 2022 in terms of equity performance. This is something I'm going to keep an eye on so we can dig into more. Meanwhile, let's close with comparative hedge fund performance between traditional finance and the crypto industry. Remember how we were recently talking about how only three of the major hedge funds beat the S&P 500 Index in the last year? How do you think crypto funds performed? While traditional hedge funds returned on average, 10% last year, a lot less than the S&P 500s, 26%. According to numbers from the firm hedge fund research, crypto hedge funds returned on average last year 214%. That's the second best performance after 2017 since the firm started tracking in 2015. What's more, it's not just a matter of these funds having strong beta to the industry, although that's a part of it. Bitcoin returned 48.5% last year, the Bloomberg galaxy crypto index meant to track the industry as a whole, posted a 153.39% return and tea cap, which is a crypto that leverages oracles to track the entire market gained a 185%. The hedge funds beat all those numbers. That said there were lots of buy and hold that did beat the funds as well. For example, having a 400% return year. Now, of course, some of this is just market immaturity. Jeff Dorman from arka says traditional finance hedge fund portfolios look very similar and passive indexes largely outperform active management. In today's picked over market. Contrast that to digital assets and there really isn't much competition at all yet. Still, you gotta think it's pretty good to see that performance. There's a lot more happening this week. I'm excited to bring you more in future episodes. I want to say thank you again to my sponsors, nexo dot IO, abra and FTX, and thanks to you guys for hanging out. Until tomorrow, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.

"Things change. Well, I think that's one of the things we got to do. One of the things initial shift is a little bit. Now, you went straight from your think tank background to Congress, correct. You didn't do all the state legislature. Time. Yeah, and I think one of the things that we've seen now and as we track transitioning your time from there to Congress is, and you just hit it. The control of our schools and I think the educational system, we saw it in Virginia. We saw it in this previous election. I think coming up in this next election is going to be a real choice. I had a someone in who worked for me in Washington. Basically say they felt like they were being double taxed because now they had to pull their kids out of public schools where they were going where they were happy with because the school was doing well. But they were shut down all the time. And they couldn't send their kids and their kids were not, so they sent them to a private school where they could actually go get education. Have you has it been a sort of amazing to you how much control the education unions are mass vaccines, man? A really not wanting to go back in the classroom? Isn't that concerning going into this next elect cycle? And if it is, how can we talk about it in a positive way? To get people understanding. I think the vast majority of teachers are in that profession for the right reason done. The vast vast majority. I think they want to teach what's driving teachers out of the classroom, where all of the rules and the changes in curriculum and a lot of it has to do with stuff like critical race theory and all this wokeness. It's taking away from what they considered their live mission to teach a kid to read it, teach a kid how to do math or to have a love of history or science. And I think the education union is largely responsible for this. I don't think this is when you look at the number of people who teach in the school versus the number of people who are actually members of the education union voluntarily. It's a very small percentage that running this education into the ground. And by the way, we had a markup, a markup in energy commerce committee, where there were two or three Democrats that said CRT, critical race theory was a myth that it didn't exist that there wasn't being done in any schools. And entered into the record, a resolution from the national education association, calling for the teaching of critical race theory on every school in America and setting up a separate program within the NEA that they funded at a 120 some $1000 to promote it. That is going to be one of the most destructive things that we've ever seen happen to education in this country. And it's going to drive more and more kids out of the public schools. What is also going to drive more more teachers out and you're right, I experienced when I was in legislature in Georgia, if you gave the unions and the quasi unions I call Paige down here in Georgia, you know, if you gave them a choice for the teacher to be able to get a raise or have the ability to get their union to use directly taken out of their paycheck, they'll choose to keeping the union duties directly out of the paycheck before they do anything else. And that was proven on a couple of ideas. You made a great point there, though, that the vast majority lock in most things. The vast majority of teachers are good teachers who want to do good, but I can give an example of from personal experience with my own wife, they were days, she taught 5th grade for the last part of her time there. That she had less than half the day, less than half the day to actually teach because of other things that were thrown on top. It had frankly nothing to do with the standards or curriculum or anything else..

enough you know very very rare crisis right now people need this help will get it to him it's the first time in a hundred years and I want people to understand a hundred year event though doesn't mean it's going to be the only about nine hundred years I think we've got to do more preparation and maybe now people will finally take more seriously what I've been a pandemic not for a long time and so I've been covering this in January because I read the great influenza I served on a public health board for seventeen years and I know what it means I am urging the offering of public health funds equivalent of war bonds I think the president likes the idea might recall like the idea of some senators like the idea because Americans want help did you see drew Brees donated five million dollars yesterday it's not amazing I'll tell you Americans are coming together from sewing circle in in my communities that are making mass because we didn't have enough in in time if the I I talked to one of my county commissioner using the juvenile department to make the the face mask it is for a hospital that the plastic ones okay the people are coming together this trump the president trump and his team have done an amazing job read up over what long overdue regulation that needed to be loose and protecting public safety along the way but expediting the ability for ingenuity and innovation America to do what we do best that address the crisis find a solution and get to the other side no I don't know if it's raising manger energy and commerce but you folks could move a bond package I really do believe in nineteen in World War two it eighty five million Americans bought a hundred and eighty nine billion dollars in war bond that's the equivalent of I think two point six trillion dollars today we could fund the whole public health expansion of capacity which we don't need most of the time but we need more research on a bug well that's certainly a good idea to look at because we're gonna need to find a way to pay for this enormous package we're putting forward and leave in place the exactly the kind of of health delivery system that can search an emergency the south Koreans learn from sars that's why they were a little bit faster and having the test capability I look on the energy commerce committee we've been looking at this for a long time and taking action and bang on the bell the other thing that needs to happen here we've got to fix our supply chain vulnerabilities whether it's for drugs whether it's for medical supplies or our telecommunications network we need to get smarter we need to do it now well I I have a Washington post column of today on on this very issue of phase four has got to look phase one was the vaccine face to the house bill Paisley to Senate bill face for got a look at the fact that the coming Chinese party screwed the screw the world and we have to be ready we have to respond to that protect Asian Americans of course protect minority but yeah we've got to get our pharmaceutical industry home we've got to get our nuclear industry home congressman Walden we don't not they lead the world now the Chinese and the Russians lead the world we are not building any we are not enriching we're not processing we are not mining that's our other critical industry but you I would tell you when I do put it when Republicans are in charge of the house chairman the committee we move legislation to expedite the approval process is maintaining safety guard rails for new innovative nuclear energy developed the small scale nuclear development which is essential for the future and we lead in America on that you got new scale from my state Oregon moving through that process now showing great signs I mean you're right we got to bring manufacturing jobs here and there no president ever ever to lead on this like president drop out I don't know I down the line from the beginning your colleague Mike Gallagher and sender cotton have introduced a bill on the pharmaceutical repatriation of basic manufacturing the V. devices like cat backs right off and things like that do you think your democratic colleagues are agreed that we have to bring home the infrastructure of response and build it and yeah so in our immediate reaction you I do might my friend and colleague Democrat from Silicon Valley and efuture help subcommittee she and I have and and Susan Brooks of Indiana and others have been saying this is what needs to happen now you may want well let's be smart about this why do we want those jobs here that's good we want the security here that the central but remember we also had a problem with the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico turns out that's rollers failing was made so we don't need to be at risk smart about even though it here doesn't mean it's a cure in terms of supply chain vulnerability let's put that first let's work with our allies and friends and and let's make sure that we were able to take care of Americans when when I could pass read it and understand that the natural thing yeah rotavirus what happens if it's not what it is yeah I worked at earlier and what if it comes back in the error

it's going to we you take care over the summer right what happened in nineteen eighteen we have to build up and I I I do think we need face for and we need we need to pay for this that's why I keep coming back to Bob we we have to pay for this and I think Americans would step up and do that and and this is the time this is the time that the knock off the the the partisan bickering and do what's right for the country step up and it we we got player reports to tell if we're vulnerable on supply chain where we need to be able to pay for these things and and there's a way to go forward and and I just think what we're the most innovative country on the planet sure we've got friends and allies around the world who can be helpful but they all turned out in the end and there's a reason because we do it right but we have gotten less RG and we we can't let that happen in the government anymore we've got to fix this we got a job now John Barry in the great influenza this is Britain fourteen years ago said we will have no excess capacity because of efficiency driven hospital system teacher he was right yep and we need excess capacity even hospitals that are built and not open unless you need them that set on military bases or other places that are secure like the hospital ship I think we can build but I think Democrats would support that that's like a public works program and if we if we sell bonds advice I you know if Michael Bloomberg by thirteen billion dollars worth of bonds instead of ads we'd all be better off Hey if he spent four hundred million doing that but but let's let's think about this from another perspective you the federal government can't be the solution all of this because at the end of the day public health yeah the liver on the ground in our communities so we need our partners at the state and county level who by the way have balanced budgets or surpluses and and they need to be a bigger partner in this solution because it's obvious in many areas they were not staffed up they were not prepared even though we send federal money to the state just to keep the system intact in case you have a big problem like we're having now so we've been doing that but if it's not adequate obviously as we see now well I want to salute you and and Kevin McCarthy in the other Republican in the house you appear to put down your storage Nancy Pelosi picked up hers at exactly the wrong moment the blowback was intense did you feel it did the Democrats feel follow back well nobody in town but I'm sure they did get they yielded a net media there's virtually nothing in this bill that they added to I mean that was worked out over last weekend held all the way through this in the end I mean that's that's what's so frustrating I I talked to one of my colleagues over in the Senate who said after Chuck Schumer brought everything to a halt he kind of sat on the floor and smirked well well Mitch McConnell's talk is like this is not fun and games people people are getting sick they're dying they expect us to do the job and and not agent in political theater well good luck on getting your corn this morning congressman Greg Walden follow him on Twitter at Rep

"Live right now in your car one of the few people going to work on the streets I'm glad you were joining us because I've got representative Greg Walden of Oregon one of our stalwarts over the years congressman Walden how are you how's the family house everyone in your circle well thank you do it and we're doing just fine were you know sheltering in place we what we need to do to all the public health standards I'm I'm actually standing outside looking up at the US capitol the clock will be on the house floor with this package just need help to our communities our healthcare respondents are workers or seniors and and try and get help on the way America your call now it was deemed necessary to try and get a quorum because one member of Congress congressman Massie for whatever strange reason what's going to vote no on a unanimous consent will you get to a quorum we'll get you a quorum you know and I have great respect for people who stand on principle you but you know a principal is your use that that the metrics both stop when you're at a crosswalk but that guy is on the phone you might want to yield once in awhile because you're not going to win that fight we'll get through this today and we'll get the say that the American people are I have respect for the constitution obviously and and people who are stand up but boy were and are you know very very rare crisis right now people need this help will get it to him it's the first time in a hundred years and I want people to understand a hundred year event though doesn't mean it's going to be the only about nine hundred years I think we've got to do more preparation and maybe now people will finally take more seriously what I've been a pandemic not for a long time since I've been covering this in January because I read the great influenza I served on a public health board for seventeen years and I know what it means I am urging the offering of public health bonds equivalent of war bonds I think the president likes the idea might recall like the idea of some senators like the idea because Americans want to help you see drew Brees donated five million dollars yesterday it's not amazing I'll tell you Americans are coming together from sewing circle in in my communities that are making maps because we didn't have enough in in time if the I I talked to one of my county commissioner using the juvenile department to make that the face mask it is for a hospital that the plastic ones that make the people are coming together this trump the president trump and his team have done an amazing job read up over a long overdue regulation that needed to be loose and protecting public safety along the way but expediting the ability for ingenuity and innovation America to do what we do best that address the crisis find a solution and get to the other side no I don't know if it's ways and means energy and commerce but you folks could move a bond package I really do believe in nineteen in World War two a eighty five million Americans bought a hundred and eighty nine billion dollars in war bond that's the equivalent of I think two point six trillion dollars today we could fund the whole public health expansion of capacity which we don't need most of the time but we need when we search on a bug well that's certainly a good idea to look at because we're gonna need to find a way to pay for this enormous package we're putting forward and leave in place the exactly the kind of of health delivery system that can search an emergency in the south Koreans learn from sars that's why they were a little bit faster and having the test capability I look on the energy commerce committee we've been looking at this for a long time and taking action and bang in the bell the other thing that needs to happen here we've got to fix our supply chain vulnerabilities whether it's for drugs whether it's for medical supplies or our telecommunications network we need to get smarter and we need to do it now well I I have a Washington post column out today on on this very issue of phase four has got to look phase one was the vaccine face to the house bill Paisley the Senate bill phase four got a look at the fact that the coming Chinese party screwed the screw the world and we have to be ready we have to respond to that protect Asian Americans of course protect minority actually by yeah we've got to get our pharmaceutical industry home we've got to get our nuclear industry home congressman Walden we don't not they lead the world now the Chinese and the Russians believe the world we are not building any we are not enriching we're not processing we are not mining that's our other critical industry but you I would tell you when I do put it when Republicans are in charge of the house share with the committee we moved legislation to expedite the approval process is maintaining safety guard rails for new innovative nuclear energy developed the small scale nuclear development which is essential for the future and we lead in America on that you got new scale from my state Oregon moving through that process now showing great signs I mean you're right we got to bring manufacturing jobs here and there no president ever ever to lead on this like president trump how do I sound the alarm from the beginning your colleague Mike Gallagher and center kind of introduced a bill on the pharmaceutical re patriation of basic manufacturing via devices like cat backs right off and things like that do you think your democratic colleagues are agreed that we have to bring home the infrastructure of response and build it and yes so into an immediate reaction you I do might my friend and colleague Democrat from Silicon Valley and S. future help the committee she and I have and and Susan Brooks of Indiana and others have been saying this is what needs to happen now you may want let's be smart about this why do we want those jobs here that's good we want the security here that's essential the remember we also had a problem with the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico turns out that's rollers failing was made so we don't need to be at risk smart about even though it here doesn't mean it secure in terms of supply chain vulnerability what's with that first let's work with our allies and friends and and let's make sure that we're able to take care of Americans when when

"energy commerce committee" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio

"And they're still available. But I do have to say that the Affordable Care Act principal Obama was elected. He was elected on a health here is that on the healthcare mandate. And I reached up to the transition me when I said, look, I didn't give up twenty five year medical career to sit on the sidelines while you all do this to me there. There may be some places where we can work together. And they think very much for my participation this last I ever heard same with venture Macklin who was the new chairman of my committee, the energy and commerce committee and same discussion with with chairman Waxman. I didn't quit my day job come up here. Watch somebody else do health care reform talk to me, perhaps places where we could work together. And again, I never got a response. So again, my purpose was not to relitigate the Affordable Care Act, but it's come up several times today. And yeah, there were some missed opportunities. And I say that having been part and just for people who are watching at home. This. Is not normal. But normally healthcare policy would come through one of the committees of jurisdiction what are called authorizing committees. Mr. Cole is an appropriate or so he pays for everything we authorize graciously, but one of the authorizing committees would have had this type of hearing and probably got it over several iterations. But this hearing rules committee is somewhat unusual. I haven't been on the rules committee. More than eight years, but it's unusual in my experience. We had two primary hearings in the when Republicans were the majority, but they were on things that were outside of the normal realm of the authorized, so it's just I want you to know, it's a little unusual to have this here. But it also indicates there's a new sheriff in town. That's why would do in the hearing a new sheriff in town. That's why we're here. Exactly the point this issue is so important for the speaker, though, this is the speaker's committee. This committee is not this committee is nine to four. Mcgovern is never going to lose a vote in this committee. If he doesn't like to leave town. So this is the speaker's committee ratio is set up by Texan Sam Rayburn, everything up here is named after Mr. Raeburn got a room downstairs. We've got a building over there. I'm gonna freeway at home for Mr. Raeburn, Mr. Raeburn set up the ratio of the rules committee, nineteen sixty one to facilitate enacting the agenda of gun activist president, John Kennedy and ratio has stood ever since. But it is unusual to have this the rules committee. But I make that point because this is the speaker's committee, the speaker has elevated this this is what the speaker wants us to be talking about today this week this month. And so we shall. I do have a number of Pacific questions at hypothesized for forgetting. Is his heart because I devoted my time. Experience to the authorizing committees deals with healthcare NIH, our committee, our committee, energy and commerce committee, produce curiously twenty first century. I mean, we can argue about how are we going to pay for things. But if we got the things to pay for it's a it's a crazy argument, and Dr Brown, thank you so much for being here. Thank your services national medical association. I will tell you when we were doing cures, and it had gone through all of the machinations that we could go through in the committee and the house had passed it the Senate drag their feet, and then an election happened. They decided to get busy and past yours because things weren't getting any better for them after the sixteen election. So they did they passed the version of cures. We quickly got a conference committee together worked out the differences, and Mr. rush, Bobby rush on energy and commerce came up to me and said dot we forgot sickle cell, and well, we didn't really forget sickle cell trying not to be disease specific this was about funding for for research in the broad perspective. But I caught what he was saying because several months before we'd had a hearing in the energy commerce committee in the summer of two thousand sixteen and we head of witness from the sickle cell disease association. And she made the statement that it had been forty years since. A news sickle cell treatment had been approved by the FDA forty years met the stuff that I was using parkland hospital in the nineteen seventies was state of the art. I'd probably go back to work tomorrow because it hadn't changed that was an astounding statement that day. Obviously, we were at a point with the cures Bill that nothing could be changed. The senate. Agreed the house had basically. Agreed. We were going to go to the floor for a vote and the president going to sign it. I think it was last Bill signed by President Obama. It's a great Bill and evidence of what the energy comes Midi is capable of doing. If we take our time and do things correctly. I did make a commitment to Mr. rush. I would work to get a new sickle cell authorization. It hadn't happened since two thousand four that was packed onto one of the Bush tax cut. So it wasn't true sickle cell reauthorization. And the next month when I was chairman of the house subcommittee. We passed a sickle cell authorization. Bill, and it took the Senate forever. It is always does. But in October. They pass their version we approve their version over here on the house floor and the president signed into law. First major sickle cell authorization that had been passed in certainly over a decade and with no new therapy. And then here's this is important because I normally don't watch sixty minutes. I don't think I watched it the night. It was broadcast with someone saying you should go to YouTube and look at this sixty minutes broadcast on sickle cell, and if I'm not violating copyright laws. I encourage people to do that. It was a fantastic discussion of what someone is doing at the NIH with fixing genetic defect that causes sickle cell. That's. Congressman Michael Burgess to to base error. And it seems like is selling hair safely spell checks cut that. But it didn't. And this doctor has worked out a system where they are actually able to put that corrected DNA into patient cells and say, I'm gonna piss the paleo. So I don't, but what I saw that picture of the blood film on sixty minutes that that young woman who they head were retreating, and these were all normal red blood cells. I mean up broke down and cried that is incredible that that child could have that picture, and can you know from your time in the emergency room six they they do crisis. It's tough. But not a lot you can do and. People worry about prescribing opiates now, we we should be judicious. But at the same time, these are people who need pain relief and the old treatments of hydration Thursay. I suspect is still one of the things that you do. But this is a great step forward. And again at bring that because the authorizing committee did another Bill that we did. I hated the sustainable growth rate formula. What are you talking about Medicare for all? There was one point where the congress said, you know, what we're just going to cut your medical reimbursement for doctors, not for hospitals nothing. But he's not the farmer just for doctors twenty-seven percent every year. Oh my God..
