You're now the chair of the health education labor and pensions committee. And we've touched on a number of topics. But i'm wondering what your priorities are. Pratt's your one. Single priority is for the coming weeks and months. Well the coming weeks for sure is to make sure that we pass a recovery package to deal with covert and that includes everything from increasing the amount of vaccines that are available To make sure we get our arms around the pandemic and everything that goes into recovering from the pandemic from texting to vaccines getting kids back in school in a safe environment making sure that people have what they need in terms of healthcare to deal with this and getting us back to what i would consider normal of a few years ago i think is an absolute priority but i also think we have to think about not just getting back to normal but making sure that what we have in place keeps us from ever going this road again and that means healthcare infrastructure. That isn't so far behind as we have been making sure that we have the kinds of policies in place. So if you are sick you can take some time off. And you're not spreading a disease like covert and that means paid sick leave. i think this pandemic has spread.

The lack of childcare The inability for people to go to work and know that they can do their job without worrying about where their kids are These are fundamental issues that we need to address the nation and one that i will focus on the chair of the health education labor.

Seattle - Sen. Patty Murray: 'I cannot support' Trump's Supreme Court nominee
"Democratic Senator Patty Murray, has issued a statement in reaction to the nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. She says. Make no mistake.

I oppose the nomination in the strongest terms, Senator Murray says she's going to do all she can to fulfill Justice Ginsburg's last wish. Had the president elected in November. Appoint the new justice. And Washington's other senator, Democrat Maria Cantwell, is also not supporting the Cockney Barrett nomination.

Any individual nominated to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court must believe in equal justice under law an opportunity for all That means protecting civil rights, women's rights and reproductive rights.

The White House sets a testing goal but will it be nearly enough?
"The White House has laid out its plans for re opening the country Assistant Secretary for health admiral Brett Gerard discusses the white house's testing plan with ABC's George Stephanopoulos there is a strong consensus out there that we're gonna need lots of testing to reopen the critics are saying the White House guidelines don't go far enough you need mandates the national strategy more funding here's what senator Patty Murray had to say your plan doesn't set specific minimum goals or for a time frame identify ways to fix our broken supply chain or offer any details whatsoever on expanding lab capacity or achieving needed manufacturing capacity what's your response to senator Murray home my response is the blueprint we did was meant to outline the roles and responsibilities as well as the core objectives of a testing and rapid response program I guess senator Murray just does not understand the details of what we're doing on a state by state basis our team has contacted or working with every single state D. C. Porter Rico to define really the specifics of what that state needs according to their state re opening plan and the two percent really is sort of a minimum floor there many states that want to do four percent six percent eight percent every month we have the supply chains figured out we know what we can supply the state so we really are much more sophisticated the overall strategy is a strategy it's not a state by state plan that's what we're doing individually with states there is no it's not just senator Murray's had this kind of criticism even of one of the president's strongest allies former governor Chris Christie of New Jersey say that the White House has sort of the president has to order the use of the defense production act to fix the supply chain to make sure every state has what it needs you know I'm in the middle of this everyone he's commenting is really on the periphery of it let me tell you the ground truth the ground truth is for most circumstances the DPA is not necessary because there's maximum production all the industries are working together on the supply chain related to testing there will be a DPA action today but it's not one of the forceful DPA actions it's a hand up it's an investment in American industry that will greatly expand the testing we need some of the testing supplies so that particularly by fall when we may have coded circulating with influenza and need drastically more tests than we have now will have the supplies that we need but the DPA has been used selectively when it's necessary but in most regards regarding certainly regarding testing it's really unnecessary but they hand up you will see will be will be implemented as necessary and I guess one of the big questions is is that hand up going to be enough I know you've seen this report from the experts at Harvard he say that we're gonna need to really open the economy to get started we're going to be needed neatly testing five million people a day in June a twenty million in July and that the guidelines you've laid out can't get us anywhere near that so we don't believe those estimates are really accurate nor are they reasonable in our society what we're talking about the two percent number let's just put that in context two percent per month is almost double the per capita rate that South Korea has achieved over the last four months accumulated this is a massive amount of test in in many states we're going to be doing four percent six percent eight percent according to the state guidelines we know for a fact that we can supply the states with the full supply chain the swabs the media the testing capability to achieve those goals and remember on this particularly in the summer it's not just about task because we can look at syndromes there is no influenza circulating in the summer so when someone comes in with an influenza like illness to the iolite network that is nationwide we'll have a good idea that that person is likely covert infected and concerts to that area so tests are absolutely important or critical they will be expanded dramatically as we re open but it's not the only tool we have in the tool box I know you're also working to dramatically expand the antibody test you satisfied now with the quality of the tests that are going to be going out in the states so as we stated many times particularly the point of care in a body test could be fraught with inaccuracies and that is why the national Cancer Institute along with the FDA and the CDC are really running the full panels of these test against what we believe is a gold standard you'll be seeing some of those results were really soon on many tests are just not up to par and some seem to be performing very very well and that's very very important and it actually took a whole appendix in the blueprint we talked about yesterday about why having a very highly specific test particularly for an antibody to talk about immunity is it's really critically important so you'll be seeing those results very soon

"Patty Murray one in Washington, Illinois, Carol Moseley Braun became the senate's first black woman, and I think that we are going to continue to see the policies that are passed here, reflect America, much better as as we diversify our congress and Senate, I suppose they called the year of the woman nineteen Ninety-two women all over the country. So move by what they've seen during the Anita hill. Clarence Thomas hearings in the fall of nineteen ninety one that they took the next chance they had to run for office themselves to try to reshape congress. Part of the reason the number of women in the US Senate tripled that year is because of Senator Patty Murray of Washington. She won election to the Senate for the first time that year replacing in the Senate democrat named Brock Adams who'd been accused of sexual assault by multiple women. I was just a a mom at home in nine hundred ninety one. I was a state Senator but really not interested in what was happening here at all. My interest came because I watched the Clarence Thomas hill hearings and I watched how woman shared a very difficult story with an all-male panel of the judiciary committee at the time, and she was disbelieved. She was swept aside and I was angry and I went to a gathering that night and I told some of my friends back in nineteen Ninety-one. The night of the hearing I'm going to have to run for the Senate because I need to be inside that to speak up for these women. That's what motivated made it run. That was selling her Patty Murray speaking today. The vote on Brett Cavanaugh is tomorrow. Election day is one month from tomorrow. Joining us now is Senator Murray of Washington. She ran and won her seat in one thousand nine hundred to Senator, Maria. It's nice to have you with us tonight. I know this is a big night in the Senate. Thank you for being here. Thank you so much. I haven't had a chance to talk with you during the course of this nomination. We're now at the very homestretch I just wanna get your your overall reaction to what this experience has been like for you and what you think this experience has been like for the country with the consequences are here. I'm reliving nine hundred ninety one where we are watching a woman come forward with a courageous story to do her civic duty to let us know something about the man that may become a supreme court Justice and feeling it so important. We know about what happened to her and a very powerful group of people on the other side who this time listened a little more respectfully. But at the end of the day, said, go away, don't worry go back to your little house. You'll be fine. We're going to put this man on on the court. So the deja-vu in me is saying more people are listening to you. We respect you. There are women on the court on the democratic side this time listening to you. But I think the result will be the same that women will listen to this. I did back in nineteen Ninety-one and realized that elections matter who is in charge matters and that today in this year in twenty eight teen. The year of the metoo movement. We are not going to sit at home and be quiet and just let it happen. We're not going back to our houses. We're not going to not tell her stories. We are going to tell our stories, we will be believed and we will make this country in a place to a place that we are proud of. Are you pleased with the way that your party the Democratic Party fought for this nomination? Obviously, this was a very closely fought nomination. Senator Manchin crossed over appears to be a yes vote tomorrow as well as the yes vote for cloture today of of them that all Democrats held together against this nomination. There was a very fierce fight in the judiciary committee every step of the way over this nomination. Democrats, I think, went as as hard as they could against this nomination. It does not seem to have been successful in the end. Are there other things that you think Democrats could have done or should have done better? Was this a winnable fight..

"The democratic his colleagues or the other side patty murray is one of them in particular and they're coming up and they're fairly close to a shortterm solution this she will be for about a year or two years and it'll get us over this intermediate hump so a lot of people assume that that was the president's sort of embracing this deal that would put those csr payments back in for the insurance companies but then the white house issued this statement saying no they were not endorsing the deal they said we are willing to work with congress to reach a legislative solution we will not provide bailouts to insurance companies until we provide the american people with relief from the obamacare disaster so they're saying there are that those csr payments are bailouts to insurance companies and they're not going to do that until they have an overall obama care deal so the white house seems to be then backing away from the deal at about four o'clock about an hour ago lamar alexander was asked up on capitol hill whether he thinks that president is going to endorse his deal and here's what senator alexandersson up to him and i know that he encouraged what we're doing and that's very helpful would republicans chretien environment which we can succeed so lamar alexander they're not suggesting that the president's endorsed this deal at all saying ultimately it'll be up to him but that the president encouraged some of the deal making process up on the hills of that's where we are not clear whether the white house is going to do a a full embrace of this deal a partial embrace or rejected altogether i am told melissa that there's the possibility we might have additional comments from the white house before the night his out tonight on this so we might get some a little bit more clarity but as of this minute right now not at all clear where the white house is going to land on this.
