"60 WJR were Detroit comes to talk. Oh this afternoon. With the economy struggling in the pandemic. Governor Whitmer wants the Republican controlled Legislature to pass a stimulus plan for Michigan up up to $100 million. Whitner says the state action is needed as the federal government struggles to approve a new round of financial relief. Whitmer will need Republicans support in Lansing. She deals now, with a lame duck session where unresolved bills often die. The state Health Department of Reports 8080 more cases and 103 deaths from the day before the state says 70 deaths announced Saturday were identified during a vital records review. Congress remains gridlocked over rolling out a new stimulus deal. Impasse continues on Capitol Hill as both sides Republicans and Democrats try to come up with some sort of a deal for a coronavirus relief package. But even though this impasse has been going on now, for quite some time, there are some on Capitol Hill who think the logjam not only can but absolutely must be broken. And time is of the essence. Fox News has learned that There are some measures that may be attached to a spending package that has to be passed by December 11 to avert a government shutdown that could offer some relief even as federal health officials meet this week to try to make crucial decisions about whom they'll recommend getting the Corona virus vaccine first. Mayor Duggan says Detroit has handled the Colbert better than the suburbs have all summer and into the fall. If you drove around the city to traders were wearing masks. It was not necessarily true in the surrounding communities, and the governor has made this point repeatedly. But literally in Detroit. We have an infection.

"First of all I care for my elderly here and I'm concerned about you know infection there the question is will the test when they're available will they die show the symptoms of the disease before presents on some tops now why you so let me say this the you will you will never get a test before symptoms you're gonna have to get a doctor's order even when we get into two thousand and three thousand a day you're gonna have to get a doctor's order in your doctor will order tests without some sort of symptoms up who knows maybe at some point they'll be some internet test but that's not anytime in the foreseeable future but you should be very careful with your aunt and I know they they talk about masks are effective they are effective other people affecting you but they are effective if if you potentially have a disease in so you just gonna have to be really careful because the odds are the corona virus won't be terribly hard I knew but I need a two year old could be put the mask on to keep from infecting someone else not just too and I don't touch the mask with your hands because they said in the mask is dirty on the outside and then you kind of read through to keep your hands off your mouth is there any way to get more masks and some of these basic things it out in mass supplied itself so you don't people were wearing masks to keep from getting the disease and they bought up all the mass and it really has very little value the the mass will catch your water droplets sprang into the air and but they don't really stop the water droplets coming your way so people use them when they didn't have a lot of value and people are trying to make them now when we put some people to work here in Detroit just making surgical masks a lot of people looking for work yeah I I don't know what the mass companies that don't ever looked into that one eight seven seven forty four minutes back to the phone lines better on the Mattel program mayor Duggan your question please where I would love for you to come into any one of the automotive there are twelve people on my team we literally work album to album my partner and I put in the dashboard I did it on one side by partner gets done on the other doesn't get much closer quarters from now I am how about yeah so I don't I don't have the mayor does not have authority to shut down private businesses so that's not something that I've spent any time on that would rest with the governor under state health initiative and so I I I like will react to a but I got to focus on what I can I can do so you're on the Mattel program mayor Duggan so do we lose him when I walked in the door okay we'll go ahead Sir what's your question for the mayor I don't know I just have a comment I'm not possible in fact been prevented it uhhuh and I work at a local area hospital and wait hold on it we are ramping up our testing what testing is only for people who have symptoms right so I guess I'm hearing a lot of questions from people to say Gee I think I was exposed to I want to make sure I'm well that's not a testing it for right yeah we can't say that enough folks who repeated a bunch of times don't try to get a test we just gonna clog up the system if you think you might have it so it you've got to have symptoms in those symptoms are going to end up being coughing a fever severe sore throat or something like that you don't you won't get past the doctor to get you know permission to go get the test and and meanwhile it's like the people calling the cops asking for toilet paper your clock up the system the request it's not going to go through so don't do it let's talk a little bit about economics mayor Duggan in the city of Detroit where were run this big customer come back a lot of that is fueled by and then the population in downtown Detroit you know walking around shopping going to restaurants are very proud of all the restaurants were open what's going to happen is there any form of relief for those businesses you know with the some of them are very young and have don't have in stock pot a lot of money up for savings yet for the handle something yeah we're too early in the process to know that in Seoul in the president's throwing around big numbers out of Washington does that help any of them I know the legislature is trying to figure out what to do and so I just don't know the answer to that right now I I get it I don't know how to describe this and the governor and I are literally eighteen hours a day on the question of how do we keep this personalities of the question earlier call ahead as do you shut down the auto plants are not ever talk to the governor about that today I am sure they're sitting around with their doctors making exactly those calls right now I would say ninety percent of the focus is on slowing the spread of the disease we get three or four weeks down the road I think you have a lot more conversation but I'll give you a simple example match of the city of Detroit gets six hundred thousand dollars a day in taxes from the casinos so when the governor called and said I got a shot the casinos down that's huge money to the Detroit budget I supported her because it was the right thing to do right health wise but but a lot of us have got financial implications are going to have to reckon with right now we're just focused on the

So we want we want to drive a car, and you have to do it affordably all the mayor mayor Duggan's really pushing for some kind of reform and probably this house version, why am I paying more for an? Mm-hmm. I if I get an skiing accident versus a car crash because a lot of times like Blue Cross they set limits on what Blue Cross and other insurance will pay for that coverage and like workers comp you've get hurt on the job. There's a fee schedule that sets the rate, but in no fault as it is today. There's no limit. So arguably doctors the hospital medical providers charge, whatever they want and that is not good. It does drive up the price of the insurance and so reasonable limitations should be set the whole negotiation fat with health insurance versus the auto insurance. All right, Charlie.

"We discussed mayor Duggan. Taking the extraordinary step to really try to get it in front of what he believes will be bad news coming on Wednesday. When Robert tarmac has threatened to drop another what he calls a bomb. Something embarrassing to the mirror said, look, I'm not waiting for that. I'm not going to bend. He didn't use the word extortion. But said that he did basically articulate the definition of it and said, this is how I felt I felt like I was being asked to change the city's position on this under the threat of personal attack and personal embarrassment. And he said, I'm not going to do it. Anthony is in Warren with them some thoughts on this afternoon. Anthony. Good, sir. Let's let's say Wednesday that that are particularly for the city of Detroit draft the bomb. So what? It's between him and his wife. So what you're dealing with. You don't like the label people because God knows today's world. We can't say anything, but you're dealing with a person who's not right. And there are certain things. I should protect individuals. You know, like how supposedly that? He goes to the first thing that lives there, technically, you're stalking the person that lived there. I mean, we have logs or I mean at what point do we not start protecting people? Yeah. This was me if this was me coming to your house, and you're a news van you can easily call and say, what's this guy doing get this guy out here? But yet if we if we post it. If we twist it around it almost were making it's okay to do it because he's not a normal person. Well, no, here's a normal person. He is in the question becomes and by the way, I fully accepted as as a news person that I was giving up a lot of public protections, and that I was essentially a public figure, and if someone wanted to do that they could do that. And I wouldn't have a lot of I wouldn't have a lot of protection. And I'm afraid that's that's true with the mayor. And he admits a admits it as much here's my question for you though, because he has left himself vulnerable, and he more or less. I mean, he sounded like he was making an admission today is he not a likely is he not compromised is he not a likely victim has made himself a victim of perhaps so vulnerable to blackmail and therefore. Is he compromised? Well, I mean, you know, better than I do if if you're gonna if you're gonna use the word blackmail, but technically what this individual doing is against the law. Exactly what he's doing. So he really unless he doesn't have unless he doesn't have very good counsel. Because I don't want to call him any derogatory names by the obviously doesn't use his brain. He's opening himself up to it. Yeah. My conservative wore a wire, he says, he wore a wire gave gap for a fifteen thousand dollar bride, and he offered it to you. Can you can use the protection of the police, but you offered it to him? And that wasn't the first day. You did it. No question. So you basically, you basically are incriminating yourself to a lot of things which lazy to believe that when you're dealing with an irate individual who doesn't he's not really using himself too. Seriously. Some point you gotta just take this guy with a grain of salt and Faye. It's not worth it to give him any more on the air or or a pillar of salt. I mean, we reached out to them to justify doing this. And whether he is not guilty of extortion by definition blackmail by. But the question becomes in some of Duggan's critics may come Adam and say, I'm sorry, but you're compromised, and if they want to make a fitness for office argument, they could try to make that I guess I think that what he did today. Not what he did perhaps out in Wixom. But what he did today? But in light of what he did on behalf of the citizens of Detroit was the right thing to do. And an honorable thing to do under the worst of circumstances. We gotta take a short break. Marie coming up next the bloodbath at General Motors and Donald Trump firing back.

Past that a little was good for us it was better. For, us than then not. Drinking at all well the sooner the, better if this is a heavy drinking weekend warn the people Well, they have been so. Warned as one third of all humankind, who drank alcohol Third of all of humankind and now they're saying? There's no, amount of liquor wine or beer that is safe for your overall health I swear I believe if grandpa Harry would. Have had a drink once. In, a while he would have lived longer than the that's what I always said Alcohol is a poison Toxic that's why if you drink, too much. Of it you die Yeah but I I really, I, believed that it, it took care of some of the issues, inflammation things like that which are really not. Good in our body and. There probably are studies that indicate that. So, you have conflicting stuff we're living in a world of studies yeah and that's that's kind of that's good news and. Bad, news because. As lay people we react to all these studies yes that's, right and then maybe we shouldn't because whatever they find out today, we already. Know they'll. Find. Out something tomorrow you are so right that's different so so right? So, who are the people who ultimately benefit from all these studies well, I guess the study. This study. Is who get grants that we we, pay for I. Guess I don't know it's it's hard to say they're interesting I? Would, suppose take these studies like you would take your alcohol or your, food in moderation Yep Yep Yep Yep We have the mayor coming up at talking. About, the no, fault I you know no faults been. Around, for a while I it's been for. Years this early seventies so I didn't realize, that this premium court the state supreme court said at the time that sense, we as a state we're making no fault insurance. Compulsory for all motorists they couldn't just decide they, had to do it then it must ensure that the coverage is available quote at. Fair and equitable rates and I gotta say no matter where you, stand on this issue and I know there are different people can coalition, of consumer, advocacy groups healthcare professionals others who have opposed mayor Duggan's. Legislative effort last year, and now this lawsuit we're going to talk with him about and, just a few minutes how can they even, with a straight face say for in for a moment that our. Insurance. Rates. In. May Michigan let alone in Detroit Our fair in Detroit itself it's like four times. Higher, than the. National average, yeah that's right. I mean it's indefensible really we have the highest auto rates of any city in the nation and, in the state it's, we're we're no bargain either but certainly. In the city of Detroit and if if there's one thing that's really holding back the explosion of growth and goodness, in the city of Detroit it's if, people can't afford the the the insurance and mayor. Duggan will tell you that I'm sure he'll, mention, the explosion of lawsuits Lawyers seeking to file. Suits and successfully being able to file lawsuits Regarding no fault insurance and I do remember those, that remember when no fault was put in forty five, years ago a main or even the main reason for doing it Was because of the explosion of lawsuits explain that will, in that the lawyers were, against it initially yes and now they're fighting for it to stay so.

Of what really caused us we went from one the city went from one point eight million residents in nineteen fifty to seven hundred thousand residents at the time of the filing, mayor Duggan's likes to say the reason we see in our city is that when those. Million people left they didn't take their houses with them you know those got left behind in those are the things that the land bankas is dealing with today. Has had to grow very, quickly I.
