Who feel like all of this is too little too late. We need to do everything we can. We need to police this industry as strong as we can. But we also need greater tools from Congress. It's a call echoed by the head of another regulator. Gary gensler, at the Securities and Exchange Commission. We could always use more resources. What can Congress do differently? They can give us money for a few hundred more people to do this stuff. That's what you need. Yeah. What is your advice to a consumer right now? This is highly risky and ultimately you need to be really careful. What are you willing to lose? Will you ever invest in crypto again after this experience?

"She the legal experts I've talked to estimate, it could be anywhere from three to ten years. They do believe she'll serve prison time. At the same time, she's going to appeal this very likely. And so it could be years before she actually goes to prison. She is not in the custody of the government right now. She is living her life, but she's waiting. And then there's the upcoming trial of Sonny balwani. There are noses former COO and Holmes former boyfriend. His trial for fraud and conspiracy will start next month. That's a big question mark because for good behavior for being a witness a snitch, something as far as sunny is concerned, there's points for that in the legal system where Elizabeth could serve less time if she helps on that case. Every time I have talked to you and I have listened to your work, you make it pretty clear that it is a mistake to underestimate Elizabeth Holmes. Even now, and I just wonder, even with this guilty verdict, even if she sentenced, is this the last thing we hear from her? Is she going to be back in 20 years?

"1000 FM 97 7 As you've heard over and over again this is one of the busiest travel weekends of the year probably the biggest People have clearly been anxious to get back out there and see family after missing out last year because of the pandemic And they're getting their regardless of crowded airports and high gas prices The average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded is 3.4 about one buck 25 more than last year ABC's Brad milky and Rebecca Jarvis talked about it on the ABC News daily podcast start here ABC's chief economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis is actually on the road appropriately on her way to a story Rebecca I mean I assume you're in an Uber running on gas I presume Yes I'm in a car as about 50 million Americans over the holiday weekend Could you ask your drive like the Uber driver how much gas prices are like does he notice how much he just paid Yeah Miguel Miguel do you remember how much you paid at the tank We are in California right now Do you know how much you paid to per gallon to fill up for 69 Four 69 Four 69 The cheapest option Four 69 Well okay so that teases us off just right then Rebecca because I literally remember when Joe Biden was elected conservative critics were saying oh you see gas prices are going up Experts said a president doesn't control gas prices They really can't influence them Except the president does come out and say what I'm gonna make gas prices lower Can you break down this announcement So this is a very rare announcement from any White House We very very rarely as a country tap the SPR It's the strategic petroleum reserve And for the most part we've only dug into those reserves when there was a major supply disruption like Hurricane Katrina This is the first time that we're Tapping the reserves because prices are where they are The reality is that this is more of a band aid solution than a long-term solution Tapping the SPR while it could equate according to gas buddy to a 5 to 15 cent decrease in gasoline prices over the next couple of weeks In the long run prices are going to be more dependent on the overall supply and demand picture This is a temporary fix but does it work Rebecca Like is this something that would actually change prices quickly Well it could So the thing is that it's also been very well telegraphed So the reality if you look at what's happened to oil prices over the last two weeks they've actually started to come down a bit in anticipation of this move And on the back end of the announcement from The White House from President Biden oil prices were higher Now the way that this works technically is that the president makes an announcement that we're releasing reserves from the SPR It takes about 13 days to release that product and then it has to be refined into gasoline Prices can actually react before the physical transaction takes place And that's what we've been seeing in the oil market The thing is again it is a temporary fix It's 50 million barrels essentially That's a one time release that is not a change in the amount of overall oil production in this country And one of the big questions is while this is a concerted effort among the United States and a handful of other countries who are all participating in this OPEC is not an OPEC controls about 40% of the world's production of oil and oil is a international market meaning the overall supply of oil impacts the overall price of oil And as a result if OPEC decides not to release more production supplies than everybody turns to other suppliers like the United States or Europe or Asia and that cuts into the supply overall But that's what I'm trying to figure out Rebecca I feel like if the administration thought that this was all going to go away in a few weeks we want to be hearing this big announcement right So I'm wondering if this almost signals that the administration's thinking GE price of everything is just going to continue to go up for the foreseeable future Is that a possibility Well it's possible I'm not a political reporter so I can't get into their minds but what I can say is that inflation has become a much more significant problem And we hear this word transitory It's what the administration has been saying Really since the spring that this would be transitory well what does transitory mean We are now 6 8 months into this and when it comes to gasoline and fuel that's a big part of American family budgets It's also a big part of business budget so you have the price of gasoline also having other ripple effects where it can drive up the cost of other things like your toilet paper or your groceries because it's one of the input costs the delivery company and the manufacturer all paying.

However, about 12 million Americans didn't receive the benefits that they were eligible for, remember. These are the checks that went out last year for up to $1200.600 dollars, and about 12 million Americans didn't receive them. So if you made up to $75,000 as an individual or $150,000 as a married couple, you can file for the rebate recovering credit on the taxes for 2020. That will allow you to receive the benefits you were eligible for. If you didn't get that check in the mail, unemployment benefits Those are taxable. So you do have to file those on your income taxes. But another thing to consider is that in this last year there was a significant amount of fraud. We're told on unemployment benefits, which means if you get a 10 99 g form in the mail It doesn't look right to you. It's for benefits that you didn't receive. You want to immediately contact your state government and let them know that you believe someone else has filed benefits in your name. These air, not benefits that you will be taxed for if they were filed fraudulently, But you do have to let your state government no.

Hopes dimming for another round of stimulus checks in 2020
"Regardless of a vaccine for so many americans. This is emergency time. We're so close. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and yet people are going to the hospital now. Businesses are getting closed now and without financial relief a lot. More people will lose their jobs some getting ready to spend their first winter in homeless shelters but this week you're also seeing some hope in washington that a deal can get done for the first time in months it seems. Lawmakers are close to passing another round of support. Compromise is within reach behind the scenes. There was clearly some bipartisan cooperation. Happening for example many democrats wanted direct stimulus checks sent to americans will it now appears some republicans and perhaps even the white house itself may be on board with that idea. Some workers have gotten sick. Have sued their employers for not protecting them better from the virus. Republicans wanted to shield corporations from that type of lawsuit. Mitch mcconnell is no longer saying that really has to be included. But they're so lots of hangups lots of reasons. This could be sunk so this morning. I don't want to talk about the partisan back and forth. I wanna ask a simple question what happens. Congress does not pass a code relief. Bill what are the consequences days weeks and months from now. Abc's chief business and economics correspondent. Rebecca jarvis is here rebecca. Can you smell it the stakes for me at the capital this week will brad incredibly important. It is make or break. It's life or death. I'm just day by day trying to figure it out day. Bonday that in the pocket of for example a single mother like angel recently spoke to in detroit who works in a hospital makes minimum wage. Therein has three school age. Children were that school. As of last friday is no longer available to her in person. The choice of work and kids shouldn't be a choice. I want to be the best mom i can be. This could be the difference between her being able to afford to pay for childcare to have someone come to her home or to even drop her children off at daycare or her potentially having to quit her job because she has no other alternative to care for her children and at the same time work so it's been challenging trying to keep going to work and prevent being far low or fire to keep you know inconsequential our lives and our lifestyles. But at the same time some nights. I go to sleep. And i'm like why am i going to work. What are the domino's that would actually fall. Just nothing happened like. Can you walk me through how that would play out from. The halls of washington to small business will two things especially are hammering. Small businesses and many small businesses in this country happened to be independent restaurants. They have not given us money and they have shut us down. We cannot survive. My staff cannot survive in one case particularly in california. You have a number of restaurants who've been told to close their doors because of the spike in cova cases now that we are going to close the outside. It's of our employees go home. And how are they going to pay their bills in new york while restaurants can remain open and they can serve primarily outdoors. They have a tipping point because things have just gotten so cold that as goldman sachs estimates about forty degrees. Is the tipping point where people are no longer going to be interested in dining outside while we're there in new york. The summer has just been a disaster to scott freezing cold after thanksgiving and the world has just completely fallen apart. Earlier this year in september the national restaurant association pulled all of its members and said how many of you can make it. The next six months without any additional aid from the government forty percent of the national restaurant association members. These are small independent restaurants across the country. Said they weren't gonna make it six months without help. That was three months ago. We're already in the territory where they weren't sure they were going to be able to survive. We see all these posters that were all in this together but it doesn't seem like we are when a particular industry as being targeted stricter than others for many of them. they're using their home as collateral their mortgage as collateral. What does it mean if they go out of business it means they could lose their home. It also means that their retirement savings for for many small businesses. The retirement account is the business itself. You've seen from j. p. morgan for example. They're now estimating the first quarter of next year. We'll see negative economic growth Moody's they're saying at this point that without help from the government we will see a double dip recession. And that's really what we're talking about here brad. What's you're not just envisioning like stays really bad. You're envisioning a scenario where it could even get a lot worse really suddenly affecting everyone with a potential deal rebecca here. I'm sure the average person would just take what they can get. But when you talk to economists business leaders are there things that need to be in this deal to avoid that disaster scenario. You just talked about well brad. According to a group of more than one. Hundred and twenty-five economists including jason furman who's a former top economic advisor to president obama. Those direct cash payments to american families are incredibly important. I need the help. My kid's name to eight other people's kids. The the the thing about stimulus checks is that they're one of the fastest ways to get people money that money gets spent immediately and it gets spent immediately in ways that can help give the economy a little bit of juice at a time where people have been pulling back but once you start looking at what various analysts in what economists are calling for. They're saying at this point sooner rather than bigger is better in fact If you look at what. Bank of america's chief economist is calling for right now. She wants to see money for testing for the vaccine and contact tracing pandemic employment insurance. That's the employment insurance for gig workers and people who have lost coverage because they've already extended out all of the benefits because they've been collecting benefits for too long and then direct aid to small businesses. Moody's mark zandi adds to that list. Rental assistance among the programs ending soon is the cdc eviction moratorium. If it expires it will lead up to five million tenants facing eviction in january the beginning of winter. I've never been in this situation ever before my life. I've never had to come out to beg for help. And even calling any of this stimulus is sort of a misnomer. It's really about relief. So that people can just get to the other side.

Coronavirus: Rise in US unemployment leads to food bank queues

E. O. of feeding America said she's never witnessed the system being more strained they've actually had to turn people away that's clearly a result of those seventeen million people in the last three weeks flight filing for unemployment so how much worse can this get what were the numbers are mind boggling but the images are also a stark reminder of the fact that half of this country doesn't have emergency savings and when we see numbers like that seventeen million layoffs in the span of three weeks you start to understand how these projections the forecasts which sounded completely unbelievable a month ago fifteen percent thirty percent unemployment in this country you start to see how that becomes more realistic and what we've seen throughout this crisis is that initially the most acutely impacted industries were the ones that laid off their employees hotels restaurants airlines which clearly had issues with lockdowns but now we've seen a larger ripple effect of Martha to areas like retail even doctors offices which aren't seeing the same number of people coming in the door because they're afraid of getting sick are now having to make decisions about whether to keep employees or leave them off so Rebecca when you factor in the terrible have health risks and the economic risk which is exactly what president trump is trying to do now what are the metrics being used for the business world well the business community is looking to law enforcement they're looking to the healthcare community to understand how things would potentially reopen but the biggest companies in America since day one of these lockdowns have been looking at how they might conduct themselves going forward they're looking at social distancing their looking at working from home but of course that isn't going to work for every employee when things do begin to reopen if you look at China for example as a template for how things might look here and of course there are a lot of differences between the U. S. the openings when you get back to normal it is messy and uneven you don't see everything there's no switch that gets turned on Martha where the whole world comes back to life and everybody goes back to work day one you do see where there is more pent up demand for example maybe at the hairdressers at the doctor's offices at the dentist you see the re openings there and people start to resume but for retail for malls those are areas which when the analysts look at what the future holds it is going to be a much slower opening and the big question now when it comes to getting back to work is childcare a lot of schools are now out for the rest of the year so what do those families do about their child care if they're called back into the office privacy and surveillance this is something you just discussed with Mr Bossert the idea that we now have to have a conversation as a country about our privacy and the surveillance that might be necessary to track this and then finally there is the question about monitoring whose job is that going to be our companies and a lot of companies are thinking about this are they taking this on or is the government taking this on

closing of of businesses businesses and and schools schools Gottlieb Gottlieb did did offer offer reassurance reassurance saying saying quote quote we'll we'll get get through through this this another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former
