CDC director signs off on J&J's single-shot Covid vaccine, clearing way for distribution to begin
"Fda and cdc gave johnson and johnson's vaccine green light over the weekend. The company expects to provide twenty million doses by the end of this month. And it's march. I make drill joins us now with the latest on the j. and j. roll out. I make hey joe. Three point nine million doses of vaccine expected to roll out this week arriving for the first administrations. Potentially tomorrow morning on this comes after. Of course the fda gave the green light on saturday. Cdc's advisory committee met yesterday and the cdc sign-off recommending this vaccine as well. It is of course the third coronavirus vaccine to enter the market here in the us and the first that only requires one dose now of course in clinical trials It showed to be seventy two percent effective here in the us and preventing disease eighty five percent effective worldwide at preventing severe disease and in addition to being one shot. This vaccine is fridge stable. At three months you can store it at more normal temperatures. Not the ultra cold freezers that you need for pfizer or even the more normal freezers that you need for the modern vaccine. Then we've been reaching out to states and counties trying to get a sense of how they might use this vaccine differently from the other two The cdc's advisory committee did not make any specific recommendations for this vaccine versus visor and moderna but the states will make those decisions. They get allocated vaccine based on their population numbers and some of them told us because of the easier storage. It could go to places where storage is more complicated To rural areas arizona. For example telling us it plans to allocate the jj vaccine similarly to how it's allocated the maderno want areas that don't have those ultra cold storage options also settings where it's difficult to get a second dose for example washington state telling us maybe the fishing industry where a lot of folks live in congregate settings on ships for example that could be a place where they would deploy this vaccine Others from the national association for city and county health officials saying the homeless population. Where it's difficult perhaps find folks to come back for a second shot or for people who may be hesitant about the vaccine only wanna get one shot.
FDA vaccine advisers recommend Johnson & Johnson's single-dose COVID-19 vaccine
"Truckloads of the johnson and johnson corona virus vaccine will soon roll out across the country that after the fda gave a thumbs up to what will be the third vaccine in emergency use in the united states. The fda is dr. Peter marks made the announcement saturday night guided by careful review of the science and data. We've determined that the vaccines known of potential benefits clearly outweigh its known and potential risks. Johnson and johnson expects to ship twenty million doses in the united states this month and a total of one hundred million by the end of june. The vaccine has two big advantages over the madeira. And pfizer vaccines now in use. It can be shipped and stored at refrigerator temperatures and it only requires one shot rather than to on the other hand studies have shown the other two vaccines to be slightly more effective overall. President biden. stop medical adviser. Dr anthony found she told. Abc's this week. This is a good vaccine. I think we need to pull away from this comparing and parsing numbers until you compare them head to head. Just be really grateful that we have three really efficacious vaccines. And the fda says the johnson and johnson vaccine offers strong protection against what matters. Most serious studies showed one dose was eighty five percent protective against the most severe covid nineteen illness and that protection remained strong. Even in countries like south africa were a worrisome. Variant of the virus is spreading
How Effective Is The COVAX Scheme?
"The vaccination program in britain is by accounts going extremely well. The country's ordered four hundred and fifty seven million doses of the job or enough to dose the population. Three point six times over. So what happens to the surplus until the world is protected against the virus there is little hope of eradicating karuna. Well this is where the kovacs scheme comes in led by the world health organization it also involves the global vaccine alliance gavi and the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations and hopes to deliver more than two billion doses. Two people one hundred ninety countries in less than a year. China and russia are also racing to provide inoculations but is this altruism or a soft power push men will martin is medical innovation and policy advisor at msf's access campaign and joins me on the line. Now man will thanks for coming on. We're seeing this program begins to roll out. Globally garner has become the first to receive vaccinations through kovacs. But how effective is the scheme proving so far. Good morning So so far. It is delivering doses as you save the i also have been delivered to ghana however it is only delivering thus far vaccines of two different manufacturers. One of pfizer and one of his of astrazeneca and so far the numbers are quite limited. It has not yet secured enough doses in binding agreements to come through on. Its promise to deliver two billion doses of kobe. Vaccine's towards partners people are countries that are participating in colfax and also. Another big problem is that it's been incredibly transparent about the way that it signs deals. We don't know the prices that have been paid for these vaccines and we also don't know what what kind of concessions these agreements have come between. Gabby which is negotiating partner. Go backs and pharmaceutical industry. Who's at fault. Here is rich. Western countries hoarding or the venue vaccine manufacturers themselves. I think it's a bit of both so obviously the country's securing large volumes of doses to vaccinate as you've said multiple times their population is a big part of the problem but the other problem is also that pharmaceutical companies have been willing to sign. These deals when could imagine a different scenario where pharmaceutical companies prioritized deals with the kovacs acidity over signing bilateral deals with countries precisely because it's a pandemic and because global solidarity the only way we're going to get out of this. I mean britain. You have pledged to give their surplus supplies with that plug the hole so far what i have seen has have only been commitments to donate some doses once. They've reached a certain threshold. I think the you is aiming to back. Say seventy percent of its population by summer britain. Somewhere close to seventy five percent. And i mean let's just be clear what that means that means that in these countries low risk young individuals will be back soon aged for many developing countries can even max innate just their healthcare workers in their elderly the truly. They're at risk. The other problem that we're seeing is and is that a vaccine in particular the oxford astrazeneca vaccines that these countries have bought are now sitting around not being used. Because people fear that they're not as effective as they should be so with these stockpiles. Just sitting around. I really fear that they may actually go out of date before there used and that would really be a shame when there's so much need in the developing

Climate Action: It's time to make peace with nature, UN chief says
"National goals to tackle climate change. Nowhere close to where they should be to reduce global warming u. n. chief. Antoni guitarist said on friday. The secretary general's comments a publication of the un framework convention on climate change report researchers examined national goals ahead of the climate summit in glasgow in november and. They said that their findings were red. Alert for the planet. Governments are nowhere close to the level of ambition needed to limit climate change to one and a half degrees and to meet the goals of the paris agreement. Mr guitarist said in response to the reports conclusions. He insisted that twenty twenty. One is a make-or-break year to confront the global climate. Emergency scientists clear to limit global temperature rise. We must cut global emissions by forty five percent by twenty thirty from two thousand ten levels. He added before calling for countries that produce most greenhouse gases to hit much more ambitious emissions reductions targets by twenty
J&J COVID-19 vaccine could get FDA approval within days
"The fda is getting ready to authorize a third covid vaccine emergency use in this country. This one this vaccine is from pharmaceutical giant. Johnson and johnson. And if it's authorized it would join vaccines from pfizer and madera in the us vaccination campaign. But here's the thing those other. Vaccines require two doses. This vaccine from johnson and johnson needs only one single dose to be effective. Npr science correspondent. Joe palca is here to tell us how effective good morning joe morning. well one dose. that's exciting. How good is this new vaccine. Oh it's good. It was sixty six percent effect of overall in preventing moderate to severe disease and eighty five percent protective against more severe diseases. Now for people with good memories. They'll say wait. A minute i heard that madonna and pfizer wasn't that closer to ninety five percent effective and the answer is yes they were higher but those vaccines were tested before. Some of the new variants began circulating and prevent any five percent of severe critical. Disease is really good since the goal of the vaccines is to keep people out of the hospital and keep them from dying and the other thing about this vaccine is mentioned in the intro is that it's one dose which makes the logistics of getting it to people a lot easier to remember to come back so public. Health officials are looking forward to being able to distribute the j. vaccine. This is how anthony fauci chief medical adviser to the president. Put it on. Nbc's today show to have them come in and be in the mix with the other. Two is is nothing but good news. Nothing but good news. Foul cheat now. The process usually is before a vaccine gets authorized in advisory board has to approve it right. Well yes well. Though he has to is probably an exaggeration. It doesn't absolutely has to. The fda can approve things on its own lookout but like the other two vaccines. The the fda wanted to be extremely transparent. There were some questions about whether they were rushing the vaccine to the market before they knew it was safe and they want to assure the public that this was being looked at carefully so that committee has been around for a while. it's known in the trade as burg. Pack the vaccines and related biological products. Advisory committee i love that name ver- pack made of scientists and doctors with a variety of specialization relating vaccines before the meeting. Fda provides the committee with its analysis and they also make that analysis of the public So i asked. Bruce gallon president of global immunization at sabin vaccine institute. What he made of the analysis of the johnson and johnson vaccine. I didn't see anything in it. That i would think is going to be a show stopper for packed. Wanna recommend that. Fda act on so gallon is predicting the ver- pack will give the vaccine a thumbs up. How many doses. Johnson and johnson have ready to ship out. Well not as many as people had hoped a year ago when started trying to make these vaccines they all said. All we're gonna do this at risk manufacturing which means we're going to start making vaccine before they even knew it was going to be authorized even if it worked. And then they'd throw away if it didn't work and the government gave the money to do this but even with that company's still don't have the kind of inventory. The country needs in the case of johnson. Johnson they have about four million doses ready to go out the door and expect to have twenty million by the end of march and one hundred million by the end of june and remember. This is a one dose vaccine so one hundred million doses is one hundred million people vaccinated which is very big. Deal leslie and briefly. What is the timeline here. When the fda issued the emergency use authorization it could be any minute. I mean they knew it right after the meeting. They could do it tomorrow. That could do it in a few days. It'll be soon. I think if the committee gives a thumbs
As hospital numbers fall, fatigued staff get relief at last
"The US has seen a dramatic turn around since December and January when hospitals were teeming with patients after a surge officials thought might be caused by holiday gatherings and pandemic fatigue seventeen percent of adults in the U. S. have gotten at least one dose of a crowd of virus vaccine and the number of people hospitalized with the disease has dropped by eighty thousand in the past six weeks it's providing some relief to frontline health workers like respiratory therapist Joe Kowalczyk at mercy hospital St Louis where on a recent shift there were only about twenty coronavirus patients down from as many as a hundred at the peak of the winter search many states are saying hospitalizations dropped as much as seventy to eighty five percent hospitalizations nationwide or not what about the same level as earlier peaks in April and July I'm Jennifer king
Fauci urges Americans to take whatever vaccine is available
"A third vaccine is likely to soon join the covert nineteen fight but the nation's top infectious disease expert is urging Americans not to be picky Dr Anthony Fauci knows people look at vaccine studies and compare effectiveness seventy two percent versus ninety five percent and so on they may then decide well just wait for the next more effective one that I think is not a good idea algae on NBC news today show saying people should be confident in any vaccine the FDA approves for emergency use when the vaccine becomes available take it Johnson and Johnson's vaccine will take its turn before the FDA's independent advisers tomorrow and felt she's looking forward to with joining the dharna and Pfizer vaccines already in use they have to it's fine to have three is absolutely better soccer mag ani Washington
Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine deemed "safe and effective" by the FDA
"And johnson. It's been shown that they're vaccine is effective at preventing hospitalizations and severe effects of covid. Nineteen this from scientists at the fda we're seeing about. I think it's sixty six percent effective when it comes to moderate to severe cases of covid nineteen so matthew. Tell a little bit more about what we're hearing with. His johnson and johnson vaccine right so what happened. Is that johnson. Johnson released data about a month ago. You know press release but the process for evaluating these vaccines is that they go through the fda and the fda really unique in the world independently looks at the data and re analyzes the data that the company produces and its own report and then hold a public meeting which will be happening friday and so the documents before the public meeting came out and they had some good news both some really clear data on hospitalizations and a general sense of approval from the fda researchers. Sometimes they're not as positive so it looks like this may be another option now. The big plus is on. This is one. It's a one shot dose. So you don't have to go back for a second jab in the arm and also doesn't need to be kept frozen like the pfizer derna vaccines do so shipping and handling of all of this will be a lot easier much easier to transport and that's a big advantage. It does not look like we're gonna have a huge amount of supply the start off with so it doesn't dramatically change how fast we're going to be any shots into people's arms but for a lot of people i think in a lot of experts i talked. You think this'll be a great option. It's one and done. I think some of the numbers. I saw the might have about four. That are produced right now. Ready to send out so it gets approved. They can get those out really quick but it wouldn't be until april possibly where they can really ramp up production to start distributing that right and will also be getting over that where they're hundreds of millions of doses of the two vaccines have the madonna and fayza biontech vaccines. That are expected to arrive in the us by july. So there's gonna be a lot more vaccine available. The jj supply will ramp up and we'll be getting more of those other two vaccines that leaves. There's a vaccine coming from nova vacs. We don't really know about how much will getting the early results issued press. Release again good and we're waiting for. Us results on the astra zeneca vaccine. Now some good news. With his johnson and johnson one is its effectiveness against these variants. That we've been hearing a lot about so it fared better than expected when it comes to those. I the way to interpret. That is we'd seen some results and the new results that they showed today look a bit better than what we'd seen in terms of variants. There's still does seem to be decreased. Efficacy against the south africa variant. Three five. Which is really the one that we're all worried about but it did look better than what we've seen previously and what j. j. has said it seems like with those variants. This vaccine is still preventing severe disease and hospitalization. Which are the key things. We've always wanted from vaccine here. The idea that you'd prevent a symptomatic infection or mild cases kind of bonus compared to just making sure that people end up in the hospital hospitalizations numbers were good on that front. What did we see when it comes to side effects. I saw that there were a few unexpected side effects. Although these are very rare you know but The expecting side effects the kind of pain in the arm the headache fatigue. That's pretty much in line with the other two vaccines. We have that right now. There were some rare events that occurred more often in the vaccine in the placebo group. Keeping in mind that forty thousand people were in this trial. There were fifteen serious blood clots including some. Dvd's in that exciting compared to ten in the placebo group. That's something the fda plans to monitor there was also some rini ears in the vaccine group and not in the placebo group. So that's kind of an odd one that will wanna watch again. This is really a prelude to friday win. Some of the top experts in the world are going to gather on zoom call and go over these data that the fda assembled we'll be live blogging that stat. That's when we really find out a lot about any medical product. It's it's one of the amazing things. The fda does now an interesting thing in all of this so public health officials might have a messaging problem when it comes to pumping the johnson and johnson. One out when we're seeing guys like pfizer maderna's say that their vaccine is ninety five percent effective against corona virus. Just listening to numbers right. This says sixty six percent. So what are they going to have a challenge in getting people to want to take this one over the other or you know how how to work out. It's really important to realize that particularly between those three vaccines. The getting vaccine is much better than not getting a vaccine. The change vaccine may be on par after a second dose and that study is being done but unlike visor during the second dose is going to be months after the first and then also slows down the study. She gotta wait right for people to get their second dose. So we're not expecting those data until kinda summerish but the big thing is for a lot of people. There was also the appeal of a single dose here. And i don't think we should understate that. And the effect on severe disease is big so the problem is gonna be the in the initial rollout. You really want people to take whatever vaccine. They're giving because being vaccinated is so much better than not being vaccinated. And that is part of the path to get in the world back to normal and public health. Authorities are absolutely going to have to articulate that now again because there's not going to be that much supply of this initially. They're going to have time for a learning curve right now. the demand for vaccines clearly outstrips supply. That's why you're hearing so many stories of people desperately logging on trying to get vaccine. What scott gottlieb used to run. The fda has raised the issue of you know. We're we're going to reach a point where the people who wanna get vaccinated we'll have been vaccinated and we're still going to need to vaccinate more people and that's when convincing people who are less sure to take vaccine in to take the vaccine that's available is going to become more of an issue last question briefly pfizer moderna vaccines are based on 'em a. What kind of platform is the johnson and johnson. When using this like theatrics annika vaccine is called an ad no virus which is a kind of virus that is used to the same kind of ideas marin a the instead of traditional vaccines were you inject the protein that your immune system sees and then learn to recognize an attack. These sneak something into your body that makes a lot of proteins. You make a lot more protein and then the body recognizes that an attack it in this case they're using this virus which is kind of a cold virus to sneak some genetic material in and that makes the spike protein from the sars virus which your body then learns to recognize and thereby has antibodies that attack the virus

State Trends In Employer Premiums And Deductibles
"Recently. The commonwealth fund examined the extent to which people with moderate incomes in employer health plans face high premium and deductible costs relative to their income to discuss the results of the study and the implications for policy holders going forward. I'm joined by sarah collins vice president of healthcare coverage and access at the commonwealth fund. Sarah welcome to the show. Thank you so much. Mike so sarah watches. Start out by telling us why you initiated this study and what you're looking for well employer health coverage is really the backbone of the us health insurance system more than half the population of the united states about one hundred sixty million people get their coverage through an employer so the purpose of this study was to look at trends over the last decade and the amount that workers and their families are paying for their employer health insurance and the size of their deductibles in all fifty states and the district of columbia and we compare these worker cost to median income in each state in order to get a sense of the economic burden of these costs on middle income families. And how did you go about conducting the research. We've been conducting the study nearly every year since twenty ten Using the latest data From what's known as the insurance components. Federal medical medical expenditure panel survey This survey is the most comprehensive national survey of use employer. health plans In twenty nineteen Which is the latest year of data. That's available This survey interviewed more than forty thousand business. Establishments With an overall response rate of fifty nine percent we computed from the survey reported statewide average premiums so we take the premiums reported by business establishments and average them across the state and we do the same deductibles and then we compared those averages to the median income in each state so this provides a rough measure of the affordability protectiveness of employer coverage and allows us to track changes over time. And what did you find after you conducted this study. We found that premium contributions and deductibles in employer plans took up a growing share of workers incomes over the past decade those costs together so premium contributions and deductibles accounted for eleven point five percent of meeting median household income and twenty nineteen. This is up from about nine point one percent a decade earlier the this cost burden in employer. Health plans has increased over the past decade because cumulative growth in median income has been slower growth in premium contributions deductibles. We also find that these contributions premium contributions deductibles as well as needing income vary considerably across the country the total cost of premiums and deductibles across single and family policies ranged from a low of about fifty. Five hundred dollars in hawaii. Too high of more than eighty five hundred dollars in nine states. Meet an income ranged from a low of about forty nine thousand and mississippi in mexico too highs around ninety thousand or more in massachusetts minnesota new hampshire new jersey what workers pay towards their premiums and deductibles comprised about ten percent or more of median income in thirty seven states in two thousand ten and twenty nineteen. This is up from about ten states Twenty ten in nine states workers combined costs were fourteen percent or more of meeting income workers in new mexico and louisiana face the highest potential cost relative to their income more than seventeen percent and we actually also find that people living in states that have lower meeting incomes like new mexico are doubly burdened on average workers in states where the median income is lower than the national median income face higher premiums and deductibles compared to people in states with higher median incomes. Also find that. Many people employer plans across. The country are insured Because their deductibles are high. Relative to their incomes tacoma fund has found that insured people who have high out of pocket costs and deductibles relative to their income are more likely to face problems accessing care or paying medical bills Than people who are not under insured. We've we've defined someone with insurance as under insert at their health plans. Deductibles deductible equals about five percent or more of income or if they're out of pocket costs reached similar thresholds in this study across the country. Many people employer plans are underinsured by this measure average deductibles relative median income or five percent or more in twenty states and ranged as high as seven percent in mexico.
Trump to attend GOP's spring donor retreat
"Trump is scheduled to speak at the cpac conference on sunday while americans go about living their lives. Political reports trump is expected to attend the rnc upcoming spring donor. Retreat in april quote. The rnc's donor. Retreats are a prime stop for future presidential candidates who use the events to establish relationships with wait for it. Major contributors Back with us tonight. Abc veteran washington journalists and associate editor and columnist over a real clear politics and matthew. Dowd he is the founder of country over party. We should point out. He is a texan. Who has a new appreciation for a hot shower. Since the cold dark outage of late and in the past matthew was chief strategist for the bush. Cheney presidential effort Back in oh four Welcome to you both. Ab you right with your usual candor and clarity quote just six weeks. After a deadly insurrection against the us government republicans are past their horror and hopping eagerly back on the trump train. The new twenty twenty one ticket price. They must buy into his big lie. That brings us to the question a. b. if trump is the banner under which they all must run under which they all must try to raise money he lost. How can that be a winning strategy. Whatever he says goes so you saw that. Nothing made it more clear than the house. Gop whip steve scalise going on tv. The sunday after his visit mar-a-lago where apparently they just talked about their families and how chill and relaxed. The president has been in his post presidency period at his resort and he just could not bring himself to say that this was a free and fair election. He said yes. Legitimately biden one when he was pressed by jonathan karl of abc news because elector said that on december fourteenth basically. He said a lot of sing. Swing states just didn't follow their own state laws and a lot of people are very concerned so what you do is instead of spreading the big lie. You never defy trump. You never disavow it and you never spell it you sit and you never discuss. How pernicious and dangerous. It is liz cheney and adam her and others have you just sort of try to circle around it because quote your constituents buy into it. And that's what's gonna keep you in trump's orbit if you want to keep your job in twenty twenty two. Matt voters have a funny way of kind of market testing ideas on their own and figuring out what. And what's gonna fly. How is this gonna fly especially in republican tightly contested suburban races two years from now. Well i think it does well in republican primaries. So i think that's the issue and that's the real problem for the republicans right now. They know that. Donald trump tests eighty eighty five percent popularity among the voters at will participate in republican primaries even in republican primaries in purple states or in suburban districts. That are swing districts. The problem is every time they venture into capturing that republican primary voth it more and more offense the people in the general election so it gets okay in a red state or deep red district to do that but when you start to try to win in suburban areas around houston suburban areas around dallas suburban areas in michigan suburban areas in california. It becomes exceedingly problematic. An i think that's the problem there in though it doesn't seem like they're in any way trying to confront that general election problem that they just keep pushing that often it's somehow they think is going to solve itself. It's almost as if they're going through this primary. They did in two thousand fifteen in twenty sixteen where they thought that donald trump problem would salve itself or he would peter out or nobody would deal within or somebody else would handle it and they didn't have to and then what they ended up having donald trump the republican nominee and then donald trump the republican president and now donald trump the republican president. So i do think it's his party. I don't think there's any question anymore that it's donald. The drill pay party is now the trump party and everything that donald trump does from town to what he cares about to. The conspiracy pushes is the republican party.
Home Depot Reports Good 4th-Quarter and 2020 Numbers
"Home depot. Fourth quarter profits came in higher than expected but shares falling a little bit today on concerns that twenty twenty one is not going to be a strong home depot is twenty twenty was and i will just point out shares of home depot over the past year even with the drop today shares are up little more like let's call it ten percent maybe eleven percent ten eleven percent. This is not a stock that has shot to the moon in the past year. I'm it's still the same business. They've done an amazing job over the last ten months a managing their business in the wake of the pandemic. I'm i'm not sure why there is at least a little bit of pessimism today about home depot the pessimism if there is some Comes out of what a small amount of guidance the company gave so before addressing that On the numbers you know the cops were up comparable sales at that. Existing stores are up. Twenty four point five percent or total sales up twenty four point five percent and comparable sales were up twenty five percent. So that gives you a sort of level set on. How business did they don't grow a lot of stores at home depot. They they just keep doing a great job. The stores they have not many close nominee open So it's not a growth story through. They expand the size of their stores in many cases with side by side. Lots for Plants and things like that and and things that they can put outside the four walls of the store So growth for the company was about twenty five percent for the year. As you say the stock only went up about eleven percent. Part of that is because the sales growth was More expensive margins contracted because of the increased costs of operating during covid and then the guidances is a little weaker than what people might have been hoping for which is a. They didn't give any guidance. They they said Company said that because of the uncertainty of how things are going to play out They don't feel comfortable giving guidance.

"Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion.

And if one of them complains fine, but you just you, you can't have why it's I love it because it's going to be zoo, but I if it was my political party, I'd say, no, I want, I want it much more focused, even from the beginning, you know, you look at the overall impact of the debates, and there is some impact, but the greater impact right now, social media, that's where you do your stumping. That's where you gain energy. It's exactly how. AFC got elected, actually, the that kind of campaigning is what is paramount. The debates you're, you're more and more. You're competing for the attention in anything in any broadcast, whether it's sports or anything else. The, the attention span of any given viewer right now in our society has dwindled greatly. So, you, you look at this, and if they're going to they're not even gonna break ten minutes, each collectively or totally on, on their speaking time. Then what are you doing? Well, and if you look at it because I know someone complain we'll wait a minute. I'm pulling higher in Iowa.

So we are all very busy. We divide and conquer and we have to respect that. But what the mistake is is we aren't inclusive. So if the man or the woman are taking one's got the investment plan in one has the daily financial household management. We have to talk to each other to make sure the right and left hand know what they're doing when we get disconnected. And and don't have a sense of are we on track for our financial security your personal definition of financial security, which may be different than your spouse's. That disconnect can then create some distrust, not only in your relationship, but with the financial advisory team, you're working with. It's okay to have different motivations in goals. But you have the middle ground, and you have to talk to each other even unpleasant things have to come forward in the process. You know, it's really interesting. I think that that that definition is different ninety five percent of the time the financial security for the husband is different than what financial security is for the wife. And so what it reminds me of is let's say that a couple wants to build. A new house and they're going to build it from scratch. Well, obviously, you don't just go by and take a snapshot of a house from your phone or smartphone, or whatever and take that picture over to Home Depot and say, hey, this is the house I want give me the materials that I need to buy. No, you've got to start out with an architect. And right now, what couple would allow only one person to go speak to that architect and tell them what they want the house to look like because I'm going to guarantee you that there's things in the house that the husband wants that are totally different than things in the house that the wife wants, and there's some of the things that the wife wants the husband doesn't even care about and the husband wants to wipe doesn't care about. But they have to come together talk about there's going to be compromised because they're both going to live there when you're talking to a financial planner. There's things that each of you want that are different than the other. And if you don't both voice those things, and they're not listened to from the financial planning perspective. And you don't talk about those in reached the common ground. Then you're never going to be able to have that one ideal financial life that you really want that to me is what the heart of financial planning. Is all about it is understanding just like an architect needs understand what you want to build the financial planner needs to understand what is your financial life..
