friend PR comes from K. books found in support of the David Gilkey and Zabihullah Tamana memorial fund established to strengthen NPR's commitment to training and protecting journalists in high risk environments this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm ari Shapiro hosting the from my home studio and I'm Mary Louise Kelly hosting from NPR headquarters in Washington another week another round of staggering unemployment numbers six point six million more Americans filed for unemployment last week that is nearly seventeen million total who filed in three weeks and is unemployment spikes Republicans and Democrats in Congress cannot agree on how to help the Americans they represent today Senate Democrats rejected a GOP proposal to send additional money to small businesses Democrats say they agree more money should be available to taxpayers but lots of questions remain about where the first three hundred fifty billion dollars to allocated are headed this well joining me now is senator John Thune a Republican from South Dakota who is among the highest ranking Republicans in the Senate we've caught him on the line from South Dakota senator welcome back to All Things Considered thank you Mary Louise who is nice to be with you glad to have you with us so we had house speaker Nancy Pelosi on the show last night laying out what she wants what Democrats want which is you know is to include an additional two hundred and fifty billion dollars for hospitals states and local governments and I just want to play you what she had to say much you respond this is her speaking about the Senate legislation as it currently stands the bill that they put forth will not get unanimous support in the house it just won't listen to soon if this is dead in the water in the house and if Americans are desperate why not agree to a five hundred billion dollar package well I mean I just think that they are amid the ongoing crisis in which we got gold you know businesses and workers are clearly struggling I think that disappointed that the Democrat leadership blocked what is critical funding to provide additional relief to those who need the most to the point that they're making about other headlining at other dollars to other programs we've already authorized dollars other programs none of which have been distributed yet the first hospital dollars you're actually going out today so we don't know what we're going to be we don't know what's working what's not working what we do know is that the the paycheck protection program which is the program designed to assist small businesses and help them keep their workers employed by getting them hundred percent guaranteed forgivable loans if they use them to keep their employees employed is running out of money and so this is a bipartisan program it's one they actually support and I think we need to we need to get past any kind of partisan delay tactics as in American people really don't want to see that is there a risk so if Republicans seem to be the ones advocating for less money at a time when many Americans feel financially desperate well I think that that and I don't think it's a question of less money I think we know already I guess so we've got you know we have checks going out of their bills presence talking about another round of those checks we've plucked up the unemployment insurance accounts at all the states it is less money to I mean the Democrats want to spend an additional two hundred fifty billion dollar sang date date they do but they wanted bill Potts that they want to put it in our areas where we've already allocated huge amounts of money hundred fifty billion to state local governments a hundred billion over a hundred billion to hospitals and that money has been distributed yet and so they're saying we want to add additional to this without even knowing what the media's and all are or were simply saying as you know it's what these dollars get out there and then let's figure out that's what the need is and we're I mean our our members are more than happy we're gonna do whatever we need to respond to this to get folks through it where this goes next this is Jim out of money at stake upwards of well upwards of two trillion already passed the president has removed the inspector general tasked with overseeing how it is spent Congress can't convene to hold oversight hearings where is the accountability well I mean there will be a person that steps in the inspector general obviously there's an accent that position is not going to be vacant it is a concern is that that inspector general was dismissed well I mean I think we have there members of the house and Senate might not always agree with the present personnel decisions but at the end of the day these are all people that serve at his pleasure and we want to make sure that that position filled it's filled with somebody who is a professional and not not political insults obviously we're paying a lot of attention to that in some of our members of our expressed concerns about that move in a letter and will will we will do the oversight center Grassley is for later on they're asking for an explanation about Cision and it Romney says Tarun Susan Collins it's you know it's a number of Republicans correct that's right yes so we'll we'll we'll do the oversight that's our role at her job it will try to get some answers one.

Into JFK. And then you would get in an Uber. Tell your Uber driver that she would like to go to this apartment complex Essex street because you would like to see the dirty diapers and the human theses on the on the street in New York City. And then you'd have a really nice Italian dinner. You'd have you know, you you go to a really nice New York Jewish deli or something. And then you go to LaGuardia. No, no, no, nobody that you go to Newark. Because if if you're from Paris, you need to go to Newark you need across the Hudson. To really get the feel for just how crappy New Jersey is. And then you go to Newark. And you've you fly to. The Dallas Fort Worth Oklahoma City. And then from there. You take a tour the feedlots? And you see all the leads in the in the cow manure and everything all piled up and you get to smell that smell. Everybody used to tell me how dirty feedlots smelled my parents always used sale, but that is the smell of money. So you get a tour of the feedlots. So now, you get branded this not human feces, but it's cal- it's cow poop, but nonetheless, you're on the poop tour, right? So you've got the New York poop and now you've flown to the u flown to the mid west and you've seen the cow poop, and then you get back on your plane in Dallas Fort Worth Oklahoma City, and you find you find a SFO.

Because apparently, there's a big pile of poop over here on market street and third and and we want to see that pile of poop right there. And now that you're in San Francisco, you might as well while you're there just hop on the southwest and fly down to John Wayne or fly down to LAX, and you can take a tour of all of the homeless in Los Angeles. And you can see all the needles in the poop there. Oh, you know what you should do? I'm sorry. You should go to Vancouver. I because Vancouver has the safe injection sites. And there you can see human feces and the dregs of society, and you can see all of that in Canada. And then you go to San Francisco, and then you go to LA. And then you've had enough and you go back to Paris. You get your little French poodle out of the out of the little boarding place. You go back to the French cafe. Me sit down you're on the shops. Eliza. And once again you start talking about. You're the United States of America. And you can tell all your friends. That you risk life and limb to visit a third world country. Where'd you go?
