"You guys talked about Georgia because the president recently held a rally in Macon. You know that's making Georgia so he's not necessarily going to these big urban areas, And that's partly because that's where you can hold rallies outdoors at some of these small tarmacs. It's also about driving up the base and going to where they live. You know, I will say, though, that they're acting very confident. The campaign held a press call today with campaign manager Bill Stepien, and they say they feel really good about their standing and really good about the momentum of the grassroots operation. That is NPR. White House correspondent Franco Ordonez and our political correspondent Asma Khalid. Thanks to both. Thank you. Working till midnight. Homeschooling your kids cleaning cooking the life of a single parent during the pandemic is a marathon. NPR's Kris Arnold reports on how single moms in particular are struggling, whether they've lost their job or are still working. If you think your average day is tougher than usual right now, meet Ellen Griffin last night. I think it was too before I fell asleep. And then up at six. I said, I'm always kind of half away. Griffin's a single mom and Birmingham, Alabama, has got two sons, 11 and 13. She works at the public library. I have to be at work at eight, so she gets her older son set up for remote school at her dad's house. He's 90 years old. We've set up a school room and my old bedroom at my dad's house. Her younger son, Drake needs more attention because of his autism, So he's going to in person school part of each day. And then there's speech therapy and another location. It's like Tetris trying to fix all the pieces, so everything is covered. Millions of single parents are playing this really life game a Tetris right now in September 4 times as many women as men dropped out of the workforce. Many of them to deal with family life and home schooling. But for a single working moms, it's Oh my God, I hope I don't lose my job. But a lot of single moms have lost their jobs, and many are now running out of money. I really had to watch every dollar And I've had to just pay the bare minimum. Like my credit card bills. Back in May, Debra lost her job in public relations at an entertainment company in Los Angeles, and she's not sure how she's going to be able to pay rent next month. She hasn't talked to her daughter about that. I mean, she seven. I want her to make sure she keeps her innocence. Esso, I want her to just think the world is on rambles and you know Whatever. But for me, I'm feeling a bit nervous. Ah, lot of people collecting unemployment are getting increasingly desperate. It's been nearly three months since an extra $600 a week in federal benefits expired. And economists say many people on unemployment have used up whatever small savings that they had. Debra doesn't want to use her last name because she doesn't want to do anything that could hurt her chances of finding another job. She's been looking hard, but she says nothing's coming through some ladies like Oh, we're just collecting resumes across the country in Ringwood, New Jersey, Nellie Re third can't pay rent for much longer, either her kids or 13 and 15. And she's facing a choice. Start spending her retirement savings or uproot her family from the house that they're renting and move in with her sister when I first got divorced, I lost my home and my kids and I ended up living with my sister for a little while, so I know it is possible. To be honest with you. It's mortifying and embarrassing at 46 years old to say, I'm gonna have to move in with my sister. Emotionally. It's a bit of Ah, failure Re there's been furloughed from her job in office building design since April, and she says she's worked hard all her life from starting when she was 13 under Dad's pizza shot. She's never collected unemployment before. But the state benefits alone don't even cover her rent, let alone her car payment insurance food, and she's frustrated that Congress couldn't figure out a compromise months ago to send more help in the middle of a national emergency. This is beyond politics. This is people's lives. This is my life. This is my family's life. We need a stimulus package. One thing that's been hard for wreath or two. As a single mom. She doesn't have a partner not only to share the financial burden, but just to talk, Teo and as far as your friends when you ask that started kind of feeling like a little bit of a welling up because It isn't something that I talk about with my friends. Really? I mean, I don't want Teo burden other people with while I'm gonna lose my home and be homeless, I might Make a joke about it, but It is very Heavy and it weighs a lot. The future is uncertain, and it's incredibly scary. It's just incredibly scary. It's a scary time for a lot of people, but especially for single moms like breather who were going it alone without enough help to get.

Housing Boom: Sales of Million-Dollar Homes Double

"The pandemic is driving a record setting boom in the housing market, according to new numbers just out today, and as NPR's Kris Arnold reports, it's also exposing the ever growing gulf between the haves and the have nots in America. Overall about 20% more homes were sold in September compared to a year ago. But the most dramatic increases their happening at the top end of the market. Sales of homes costing a million dollars in up have more than doubled since last year. I don't ever recall home sells doubling in a 12 month times that Very unusual. That's Lawrence Yun, the chief economist of the National Association of Realtors. He says people are working from home while juggling their kids, remote schooling him and many who can afford to are buying bigger houses. Mortgage companies are making money hand over fist. Right now they're doing so many more home loans. Some are running ads like Thiss and although together is great, together with more space Is better. It's not just the super rich buying bigger places home selling between 255 $100,000, though, saw a 36% jump in sales. Meanwhile, the median home price has also just hit a new record. $312,000 Now you did great news for homeowners as they're seeing equity devised and why, but Yoon says prices are rising too fast. Economists like to see home prices climb in line with people's wages. But home prices, he says, are way beyond that. He will eventually lead to a talking point where first time buyers simply cannot show up to the market because they can't afford to buy any house that actually want to live in. And he's worried that that will lead to even greater income inequality. A that virgins in society you have to have With homeownership gaining their equity. Those people who would like to become homeowners continually being frustrated, Yoon says. Already, there are fewer first time Homebuyers as Faras. What's driving up prices? It's low interest rates, and there are also just aren't enough homes for sale. Construction is ramping up so that should help eventually. But for now, Homebuyers air quickly pouncing on the few homes that get put

"This is standard operating procedure for all nominees. No surprises expected there and then tomorrow we'll hear from outside experts, but she's on track for a confirmation vote in the committee. Next week, which would put the nomination on the floor just days before the election. And just in time to hear that Obama care case. Thanks. That's NPR's Susan Davis. During the pandemic. State unemployment systems have become a target for organized crime rings. They steal money through fraudulent claims. But arguably a bigger problem is that some of the systems in place to prevent fraud like that. Have been hurting millions of innocent people. NPR's Kris Arnold reports When seven Gua sh lost his job as a food and beverage manager at a Marriott Hotel near San Jose. He figured low kale apply for unemployment. This was back in March he went online put in his info, waited for weeks couldn't get through on the phone After more than a month, he was told to mail and Maura proof of his identity. My driver's license. Picture of my past poor copy of my W two, she said. The more documentation that I could put in there to prove who I wass would help out my case. Help out his case, Gua she had clearly lost his job with a big company had idea what was the problem, But this dragged on and on. Weeks would go by. They need another documents. And six months later, Gua. She still hadn't gotten any unemployment money, man. He can't find another job I had about $17,000 saved squashes 32 years old and had been saving up to go back to community College to try to become a computer programmer. He moved into a smaller apartment to save money, but he still had to drain that entire savings for college. There's not enough left to pay rent. Next month, I got to watch what I worked really hard to get dwindle away. I don't want to get angry in front of you for the interview. But it has been really, really frustrating. And the whole thing just seems so Kafka asking avoidable to him. It's so hard to just prove that you exist in California alone. Millions of people are having a hard time proving they exist as they struggle to get the unemployment benefits that they deserve. And it turns out Gua. She's right. Ah, lot of this was completely unnecessary. All right, so to understand what's going on, Let's just say that I was going to apply for unemployment and you had written Christopher Arnold, but your social security card, said Chris Arnold. Or something like that. That's Jennifer Palka. She was brought in by the state of California over the summer to co chair a strike team to figure out why there were such massive delays. She was a top technology advisor in the Obama White House. So like, she said, maybe I forgot to enter my middle initial or something Minor. It's not that hard to tell that you're the same person. But Palka and her strike team found out that that would send up a warning that oh, could be fraud We need to do it's called further identity verification. And that means a manual review. People have to review your case. People swamped with 10 times the normal number of claims, right? So if you applied for unemployment assistance You had a 40% chance of getting flagged for manual processing for the vast majority. It was for this idea verification. This is what appears to have happened to quash and Palka found that many other people suffered through traumatically long delays. Those 40% of people. Which is a lot had very little chance of getting paid in any reasonable timeframe. At a hearing with lawmakers in July, sharing Hilliard, the head of the California unemployment system, or E D, apologize to those people, most importantly, what I want to make sure everyone understands is that TV failure in Brest Any payment delays But poke a strike team realized that the payment delays. They just didn't need toe happen. All this idea verification to try to stop fraud. It was completely outdated. Sadly, they haven't been protecting the system from much fraud. They catch very few people like really, really. Very few people. Remember her report found that 40% of the people applying for benefits face these big delay, so millions of people who deserve benefits are getting Peng up in this net. How much actual fraud is that successfully catching less than half a percent of people less than half of 1% people are caught as fraudulent Through this tactic. This is not just a problem. In California. Millions of people around the country are facing big delays by one count 15 million Americans who filed for unemployment still haven't gotten any benefits. And experts say outdated fraud prevention systems are a big part of the problem. But at least in California things are finally changing. The state has followed a recommendation from the strike team and brought in an outside company with a much more sophisticated system. So, Palka says, starting as of just a few days ago, people can now verify their identity very quickly when they apply just using their phone and actually asked you to take a photo of your I d. Probably your driver's license. Right then and there and then actually asked you to take a selfie and it's then drawing on many different databases and very sophisticated way to really understand if you are who you are says A lot of people are working very hard in the state unemployment office, But the hope is that 90% of applicants can now get processed quickly and avoid the dreaded manual review. For his part seven quash who had to spend his college savings says that he spoke to a representative late last week. She let me know that unlit early ready They have all of my information entered, but someone with more authority still had to give the final approval. So I found out I'm waiting on my mysterious hero wherever they may be that mysterious hero. It just came through Quash tells us more than six months after he applied. His account now shows that the state has finally started paying him his unemployment money. Chris Arnold. NPR news.

"Live from NPR News in Washington. I'm Louise Schiavone. The Senate returns to Washington this week ahead of the September 30th deadline to avoid a government shutdown. NPR's Kelsey Snell reports lawmakers hoped to reach a spending agreement with or without additional Corona virus relief. Lawmakers and members of the Trump Administration agreed that they want to avoid a government shutdown. When the fiscal year ends on September 30th. That likely means that they'll have to pass a short term extension of government funding at current spending levels. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have already agreed on that goal and that they should approve the funding without any additional policy writers. But the duration of that extension is still up in the air as our talks over additional Corona virus aid. Negotiations over that funding have been there to stand. Still for weeks. Democrats have said that they're willing to drop the request to $2 trillion, but Republicans say a much smaller figure is in order. Kelsey Snell.

There are limitations to get the protection renters have to give their landlord a signed declaration about their income and that they have no other option if evicted, other than homelessness or living with Mohr people in close proximity.

Diana and tell heads up the National Low Income Housing coalition. The eviction moratorium on its own is not enough. It has to be paired with substantial emergency rental assistance to keep low income renters out of debt. And to allow landlords to pay their bills.

"Steve Inskeep, and I'm Rachel Martin. Millions of Americans have been a real risk of eviction over the past few months. Many of those people have now been given a lifeline. In a dramatic move, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is ordering Ah, halt on evictions across the country through the end of this year. NPR's Kris Arnold is reporting on this and joins us now, Chris Good morning, so that I mean, that's a huge move by the CDC. It doesn't though, seem on its face like something the agency would have the power to do. Hey, Rachel. Yes. So, I mean, you might think that, because especially so far during this pandemic, we've seen nothing very forceful from the CDC has been criticized. We're having voluntary guidance that lets states and business is kind of do whatever they want. If that's the CDC, sort of, you know, walking on little Kitty Cat feet that this, though, is the CDC booming its feet like Paul Bunyan or something and doing something much more dramatic, and the CDC says it does have the authority under the Public Health Service Act in 1944. That gives the government broad power to stem the spread of communicable diseases. And look I mean, the basic idea, of course, is that forcing people out into homeless shelters or crammed together living with relatives? That is very likely to get a lot more people sick. So who does this eviction ban apply to specifically alright, we'll quickly to qualify. Renters have decided declaration, saying that they tried to get unemployment benefits or other kinds of support that they'll make partial payments as much as they can afford to their landlord. They can't make more than about $100,000 a year or twice that if you file jointly Me and that if you're evicted, you have no other option than homelessness or living with more people in close proximity, which would increase the risk, which is exactly what they're trying to avoid. So how many people are we talking about? How many people with this effect? We're talking about a lot of people. When one estimate from the National Low Income Housing coalition is 30 to 40 million people in 17 million households or families were at risk of losing their home at the end of the year of something like this wasn't done. Diana Intel is the CEO of the group, and I spoke to her last night. Well, my reaction is a feeling of tremendous relief. I mean, it's a pretty extraordinary and unprecedented measure that the White House is taking. That will save lives and prevent tens of millions of people from losing their homes in the middle of a pandemic. But, she says, also Congress in the White House should have done this months ago. And instead we've had this crazy quilt patchwork of federal state local moratoriums. Lots of people weren't covered and thousands of people have already been infected. What are you hearing from landlords about this Chris? Well, in short, the landlord's air saying, Well, who's supposed to pay for this? You know, Democrats in Congress had plans for a moratorium. But along with that was $100 billion of assistance to renters and landlords to pay for that. That is not a part of this order. I spoke to Greg Brownies with the National Apartment Association were really concerned about this because If the moratorium is put in place. Rents are not paid. But the owners continue to have to meet their financial obligations. And how are they supposed to do that? Who's goingto help them pay their bills? And it's not just landlords who want the rental assistance. Danyon tell who we heard from. She too, says Look there. This needs to be coupled with federal money to pay for Miss Trent. It's a half measure eviction moratoriums on their own. Create a financial cliff for renters to fall off of when those moratoriums eventually expire and back. Rent is due and renters air no more able to pay it then. And they were at the beginning of the pandemic. And we should say all this puts pressure on lawmakers to make a deal and come up with some money to pay and help people struggling during during the pandemic. NPR's Kris Arnold, thank you.

"That like, I don't know how I'm going to do that. If we lose, perhaps Millions of runners were not covered by the federal eviction moratorium. But a patchwork of state and local rules banning evictions has helped many we wanted to bring in NPR's Kris Arnold to explain the overall situation and what Congress is doing right now to help renters. Hey there, Chris a Marie Louise. So you have been looking at this patchwork as I called it of protections. How is it working or not Working, who is actually protected from eviction right now? Well, patchwork is a really good word because ah lot depends on where you live. If you look at Boston in Pittsburgh, for example, there's still very strong protections to stop evictions and a lot of other places, though you know, there's local moratoriums that have been unending expiring. And I talked with somebody who's tracking eviction filings in a bunch of cities. Peter Hat Burn is a researcher with the eviction lab at Princeton University. And he says, Look back in March, the pandemic struck lots of things shut down, and so did most eviction violence. But since then, we've seen large rebounds in a number of cities. So in Houston, we saw 600 eviction filings in April that doubled to 1200 filings in May and doubled again to over 2500 new filings in June. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Eviction filings surpassed historical averages for the month of June, and that's despite the fact that the federal moratorium cover is probably 1/3 of renter households. And that federal moratorium like you just said that stops today stops today hasn't worked. Has it been successful? How has it help people? You know it's interesting, but frankly, I was a little skeptical about it at first, because a lot of tenants have no idea if they're property is covered or not. I mean, is the property backed by a government guaranteed loan. Who knows, and a lot of people don't have a lawyer to help them. But Peter Hepburn. We just heard from with the eviction lab says No. You know, actually, this has been working and landlords, for the most part have been complying. So we're very worried about an ending. The end of that moratorium could signal the sort of the cliff This could lead to a large spike in new eviction filings and you know when people get evicted, it's hard emotionally, but it's also hard to recover financially on this could lead to homelessness it it's harder to get another apartment because when they check with your last landlord, you got evicted. And on top of that, like you said, we've got this double whammy. The moratoriums expiring, along with That extra $600 a week in unemployment benefits. It's a huge double whammy in the same day because that money has been helping people pay the rent and stay in their homes. Yeah, I mean, it's it's been huge, right that rent is most people's biggest Bill. Ah, lot of states don't pay very much in state level unemployment benefits and so $600 a week is a huge amount of money for Somebody without a job, and we've got right now upwards of 25 million Americans on unemployment getting that benefit and all those people are losing that today or technically this weekend. Ah, lot of people are really worried about that. Let's turn this around and look at it from the other end from from the landlords point of view. If you have a bunch of tenants who are going to be able to pay the rent going forward for whatever reason, That's a huge problem for the landlords, many of whom are are small business owners there trying to make a living too. Yeah, you, Of course I landlords, Big and small are very worried. I talkto policy No with the national Multi Family Housing Council. She represents that the big apartment building owners. The worst case scenario is that You have this wave of renters who are just unable to make those housing payments that directly leads Tio property owners that can't make their payroll. They can't satisfy their own financial obligations on those properties that risks a system failure when you have a wave of properties, then that are going into default. She's talking about this cascade of you know if apartment building start going bust, and that sets off a chain of events that hurts the financial system in the economy and what we saw, Ah, historic catastrophe not long ago with foreclosures and a lot of people losing their homes, housing advocates say we could Seymour people displaced here if Congress doesn't extend some kind of help. Okay, well, speaking of Congress, what is their role here? They we know they're trying to come up with 1/5 Corona virus relief bill. Do we know whether extending that $600 in unemployment might be a part of that? Do we know where their additional help for runners might be in there that is on the table and being talked about Democrats want to extend the $600. Republicans say it's too much money, it creates a disincentive to return to work. They're also split on extending the moratorium. Democrats also want a separate rental assistance fund for renters and landlords. But you know, a lot of stuff is changing and moving in the negotiations and lawmakers will get back at it next week. All right. That is NPR's Kris Arnold reporting. Thank you, Chris. Absolutely. NPR's looking at hospitals around the country that are risk for reaching capacity due to rising Corona virus infections. On Tuesday, we highlighted the situation in Boise, Idaho, home today we visit Yakima, Washington. Tacoma's only hospital got overwhelmed in June and had to send patients ours away for treatment.

"Here's NPR's Kris Arnold Mary Collins lost her job as a home health aide in Dallas after the outbreak hit and she says before she started getting that $600 a week she got behind on the rent. Her landlord took her to court to a victor. On on June 16th. They filed which was the first day the court's opened here in Dallas. Hold on so I can get a little behind it. Oh, that's when they followed for eviction, Collins says trouble breathing because she is covert 19. Um, she tested positive. She's a single mom caring for her disabled teenage son. He got the virus, too. And even though she says she told her landlord that and that now she is getting unemployment benefits that could work out a plan to catch up on the rent. She says her landlord has kept trying to a victor. Most of my houses, like 80% packed so in the middle of maybe, and sick I'd get up and pack a box. And then collapse just packing one box of wear me out of the last two weeks, and that I have to have everything ready, because if they show up and say, you have to go now I have to be ready. Her landlord, which in the eviction court documents is named his Overton apartments. It did not return e mails and calls requesting an interview. If that extra $600 a week was going to keep coming, though Collins could afford to rent some other apartment, But Congress hasn't worked out a plan to extend to replace that. So she and more than 25 million other unemployed people are losing that extra money after today or this weekend. Meanwhile, a federal moratorium that protects some runners in big apartment buildings from eviction is ending, too. I'm deeply worried. Diane Yan tell is the president of the National Low Income Housing Coalition. It's very clear that without sustained Federal intervention. There will be a wave of evictions and a spike and homelessness across the country, and in fact that wave has already begun and Congress needs to act. To prevent it from becoming a tsunami, and we are running out of time, she says. Even where the Corona virus is raging right now, Arizona, Texas We're seeing thousands of eviction filings, but we'd be seeing a lot. Mauritz hadn't been for that extra $600 a week. Priscilla Almodovar is the CEO of Enterprise Community Partners and affordable housing nonprofit. We have evidence that it's really it's been the federal stimulus money that has Kept renters in their homes. And if Congress fails to act like with so many other parts of this crisis, she says, people of color will be disproportionately hurt, especially low income communities of black and Latino renters will lose their home. And it will be more acute. In African American communities were very concerned. Of course, a tidal wave of missed rent payments and evictions would hurt landlords to Greg Brown is with the National Apartment Association. He says. Landlords do not like to see renters losing that extra $600 a week either when these benefits run outs going to be a very difficult environment for owners, who will be saying Well, how do I keep paying the bills that I have to pay if my residents are unable to pay their rent, So it's it's the Cascade is very concerning makes people very nervous, so tenants and landlord groups or both lobbying Congress for additional help Beyond unemployment money targeted specifically at renters. Democrats in Congress want to set aside $100 billion for that in this next pandemic bill. Again. Housing advocate Diane Yin tell $100 billion could help 10 million renter households. So that's nearly 30 million people in those households for her part, Mary Collins in Dallas who has Cove it and has been fighting the virus and eviction at the same time, she's so far been staving off eviction with the help of a pro bono lawyer. But she's worried that she could still be out in the street in just a few weeks. I'm scared. I'm really, um I'm.

"Recover. Kris Arnold NPR NEWS This's all things considered from NPR news. Three senior ministers in France are under investigation after nearly 100 complaints were filed by doctors, patients and the families of victims of the Corona virus. They are accused of failing to act quickly enough to stop the pandemic. Frances Thie first country to launch such probe, But as reporter Rebecca Rosman reports, those behind the landmark investigation hope it will encourage others elsewhere. In February, Ludovic to row, a doctor working in the Paris suburbs, wrote the French government with a stark warning. A new Corona virus, first seen in China was circulating widely in France, he said, and hospitals were not prepared for the mask. In the letter, Thoreau says he begged the government to send more test kits, masks and other protective gear to his hospitals. For months. Nothing came Tantaros. Worst fears became reality hospital staff started falling ill with the virus. Two of his colleagues died. He says these deaths and many others could have been prevented if the state had acted quicker. And been better prepared. Francis Dental has exceeded 30,000 so far, the third worst total in Europe City than Mrs How is it possible that in France, the sixth largest world power, we didn't have enough equipment to protect us in March to Rome on his colleagues filed complaints against then Prime Minister Edward Philippe. Along with the former health minister Anya's bruise on and her replacement, Olivia Fallon. Earlier this month, a special court said it would investigate some of the accusations, including that all three had quote failed to fight a disaster. If convicted, they could face up to two years in jail and thousands of euros and fines. Fabrice Di Vizio is the lawyer representing to row and other doctors. He says the final straw was an interview. Former health minister Bozon gave to the newspaper Le Monde in mid March. Declaring that she knew that in January how bad the pandemic was going to be a June she probably could have dragged it soon. And she said, quote. I cried because I knew that the tsunami wave was coming our way. The issue with that is that doctors didn't have any masks. They didn't have any test off Scrubs. We had doctors died because of these. So when we heard us say that we thought it was insane. Suboxone in you. When probe about the interview At a recent parliamentary hearing, Suzanne said her words were taken out of context. Other countries have the gun looking into similar investigations. Prosecutors in northern Italy questioned the Italian prime minister last month over his government's handling of the pandemic response. Alexey Polin is a French journalist and founder of the political news site. Lamone Will Darrin He says The French investigation has great symbolism. But he doubts the Hughes will face any punishment. Because in France, we have a long history of elected people being never responsible and never give tea. Whatever they do, it seems that being elected is ah. Is a immunity but better than any other in front ofthe justice. But Dr Ludovic Thoreau says it's not about putting the ministers in jail or ending their political careers. It's about holding politicians accountable and acknowledging their mistakes to baste it with comes up. Otherwise, he says. We can't call France a democracy. That's what you call a monarchy for NPR news. I'm Rebecca Rossman in Paris. This is all things considered from NPR.
