House passes sweeping coronavirus response package

"Everything from testing to making up for lost salary has been the focus of contentious negotiations between Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill along with the White House Wall Street Journal reporter Chaban Hughes joins us from Washington to shed some light on negotiating process so Chaban. This package contains things like corona virus testing. That's free for everyone who needs it paid sick leave and unemployment insurance for furloughed workers. Are there particular programs that were sticking points in the talks? The big thing that has been a sticking point at least from president. Trump's perspective is the lack of a payroll tax cut. Democrats have said that is off the table. Because it doesn't address the problem a payroll tax cut would help only workers who have jobs and the corona virus crisis is going to leave a lot of people unemployed so that was a big sticking point. Another point of contention had to do with the paid leave. The issue has to do with the mechanisms for delivering that to people and who ends up paying for it now. This package really hits voters on Main Street. The steel will not only put money in people's pocketbooks who potentially miss work. But it'll quell fears as well seems like there's a lot at stake here for politicians on both sides. There's an enormous amount at stake here for politicians on both sides. The most recent precedent is the two thousand eight financial crisis lawmakers here described that as basically the closest comparison they can think of this package is one piece of what's viewed as instrumental in keeping the entire economy the entire healthcare system going and so yes a tremendous weight is on lawmakers shoulders. Has there been any talk. This might be just one. Phase of a series of agreements with this economic crisis continues absolutely house. Democrats have already said they plan to be working on another package. It's very clear that's where talks are one piece of it is there were conversations that were not able to be resolved in this round of negotiations so all of those will be moving to another round. Um there are conversations about doing things like for example an infrastructure package. That's something that Richard Shelby has wanted. Steny Hoyer the house. Majority leader told us this morning that because everything is so influx because lawmakers do not know exactly the extent of this corona virus crisis or where it will take us. They are at the ready to do. More as needed as issues become apparent.

Pressure On China To Agree To Trade Deal

"Radio. Even though we have a lot of liquidity offline from may happy made if you are taking today off there still some selected assets that are trading and some important events to look ahead to US equity futures advancing then he had apples upbeat forecasts. Traders expecting lower volumes throughout the day. Then bit of movement coming through in terms of US equity futures higher. You've got a bit of movement on the ASX two hundred straight up about eight tenths of one percent. Other than that. It's pretty quiet on the equity side in terms of the handover overnight. We did have course, they Tekere innings more generally with apple but also a little bit of a well, it was a weight on the shoulders from Google corporate earnings and develop the trade conflict between the US and China remain front and center, that's for sure I mean, running through some of the currency pairs here. You're looking here the Bloomberg dollar index. That's just barely about the flat line here quiet on the Major's front. So I mean, pretty much all of these pairs unchanged. Eurodollar one twelve twenty Donnie in one hundred and eleven fifty and cable is up less than a tenth of one percent. Short of one thirty fifty five commodities are on the pressure a little bit. Brent crude Coney down six tenths of one percent. We have higher inventories out of the US and the initial data overnight. Gold is lower by three tenths of one percent. So the metals on the pressure let me run through some of the news as well. In terms of the corporate earnings because we are getting of course, quite a few fast and furious start off with Sainsbury's fiscal year revenue at twenty nine point zero one billion pounds. You're looking here at fiscal year sales of thirty two point four one billion pounds to final dividend. Shares going to be seven point nine Pence. Few notes on guidance year Sainsbury saying the consumer outlook continues to be uncertain and that they are well-placed to navigate the external environment. So that's on the Sainsbury's front more retail input from next currently first quarter retail sales coming through a negative three point six percent. The market was looking for actually more of a contraction here down six point two one percents of slightly better than some of the analysts had pencilled in. I go to online sales eleven point eight percents the estimate heroes for twelve point eight percent. And so a little bit of a little bit better on the retail sales. But a little bit short of estimates on the online sales on guidance. They're still seeing fiscal year pre-tax at seven hundred and fifty million pounds and still see full price sales at up one point seven percent. And then also on the economic front. We've got some UK April house prices. They're up zero point four percent on the month. That's the nationwide. Up zero point nine percent on the years that is some economic input as well. So that's a bit of a flavor then on what's happening with these corporate earnings. Let's get now to some of the stories we're watching very carefully starting off with what's happening with the United States and China. The White House is ramping up pressure on China to reach a trade deal in the next two weeks. Bloomberg daybreak Asia anchor Bryan Curtis has more from Hong Kong, the US said once again, he would walk away from the talks if no deal, Mick Mulvaney, President Trump's acting chief of staff said negotiations would not go on forever. So the administration is making its impatience known a slight shift from the earlier more optimistic messaging still going into talks today. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the US side had a nice working dinner last night with vice-president Leo hub, two of the quick notes. The F T says the US is likely to accept a watered-down commitment from China on security that to speed up a deal and. And Chinese regulators said today, both Chinese and foreign banks will no longer be subject to ownership caps on local banks Kong, Bryan Curtis. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. That means on world financial markets away. Today's Federal Reserve announcement on the US interest rates. Bloomberg's Michael Mckee has a preview. This fed meeting is widely expected to be a nun event except for that little possibility of a rate cut. No, not a policy cut to the fence target. But an adjustment to the rate of interest. The central Bank pays banks on excess reserves the effective federal funds rate traded a record five basis points above the excess reserves rate Tuesday most traders blamed technical rather than policy issues such as a rise in repo rates on other securities that suggests the fed doesn't need to do anything others note, though, it's been an ongoing problem and forecast a slight cut in the rake in Washington, Michael Mckee, Bloomberg daybreak Europe. And as the central Bank meant to weigh monetary policy. Donald Trump sought to pressure the fed to make drastic moves to boost and already healthy US economy in a pair of tweets Tuesday. Trump criticized the fed for having incessantly lifted interest rates and wonderfully low inflation Colfer steep interest rate cut and the resumption of bond purchases as well. The thing with the theme. The president's comments came as another political drama swirled around the central Bank on Capitol Hill Trump's plan nomination. He recalls Stephen Moore to the fed sports looks increasingly uncertain as a third Republican Senator voices downs. The story from Bloomberg's Charlie Pellett. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. A key ally of the president told reporters that Moore would be quote, a very problematic nomination, though, he has not made up his mind. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa and Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama on Monday voice. Their own concerns about more a Heritage Foundation fellow and a former Trump campaign adviser Ernst the senate's fourth ranking Republican told reporters, quote, I am not enthused about what he has said in various articles later, Monday Shelby. The former chairman of the banking committee said he thought the proposed nomination, quote has some problems Charlie Pellett. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. That's something singing. Singapore where Mark Cranfield and markets live team joins us, Mark. Let's start off with the mlive question of the day. The fed odds in terms of the likelihood of a move very contradictory and not really in line with what we're seeing the job market. Yes. Good morning, certainly the market by some as strong as it's been since the nineteen sixties in the United States pretty healthy condition. We've also saying some pretty good wage growth as well. Even though it hasn't really fit injuring flation too much. So Fava certainly in the GDP data from Las week, as well already know the picture is pretty healthy economy. We go to started go to the payrolls not becoming up on Friday, and the fed will certainly be thinking about this as well because it probably reinforce this very strong picture of job market. So when you have that in the background certainly makes a bit curious as to why the mock is getting so excited about the polls. Not of the fed may take the opportunity to to try and rain the market back in a little bit and try and get them back more to a neutral territory because of that. Let's talk about the greenback. It's climbed against all but three of its group ten currency peers and twenty nineteen to folks at TD North America point out that any further strengthening any wheat test of some of those twenty eighteen is could mean trouble for stocks can be trouble for high your credit and currencies as well. More. Generally. You're seeing that dollar bears can return to hibernation after the FOMC run me through your thinking. Yeah. So we had a little bit of softness in the dollar towards the individual pro, and that's not unusual this month and maneuvering which goes on. And it's quite often the case where people are just have to tidy things up in the came off a little, but the fundamental case for is is pretty hard to ignore right now, particularly against the emerging market currencies. You've got short term rates in America, which are very high in comparison to other g ten currencies relatively high compared to the emerging market world. Plus as we were saying this pretty strong background of data from the United States. And they made it very. Clear it's on a long-term polls here. So he's not really going to be going anywhere. We've monetary policy at the same time. There's other countries that want to lower interest rates in in Asia. We've had India of moved already we've got to Malaysia looking at it, South Korea looking at it Philippines, Indonesia, they're all heading towards lower rates environment. So that certainly from an investor's point to you. They're probably thinking that the fed is beginning to look like a high yield currency here. So we could save it. If a rebound once the fed is out the way people start looking ahead to Friday's jobs report. It's always a pleasure catching up. Thank you for stopping buying. It's Mark Cranfield.

"Alabama newspaper publisher faces demands that he resigned after his paper called for the KKK to ride again. He said the white supremacist groups should clean out Washington.

One name keeps getting repeated at the checkout stand in Linden's Dollar General that of good low Sutton publisher editor of the democrat reporter newspaper. Pretty you'll get the people around Linden about good Loeser. Bobbi Williams has worked at the store for sixteen years. He remembers a newspaper racks were full of the democrat reporter on the front sidewalk, but about six months ago, another racially charged story changed that and lead to boycotts.

We hope you're having a great day today. Texas lawmakers are in session here in Austin that Capital One of the things they're discussing is back scenes vaccination rates across the state of Texas right now, the public can get information on a school district by school district basis on the number of kids who have not been vaccinated. There's an effort underway to make it school by school campus by campus. And we're gonna talk about that to kick things off today. Joining us on the news live line is record Lakshmana director of advocacy and public policy for the immunization partnership. That is a nonprofit in Houston, and she joins us now on NewsRadio LBJ record. Good morning. How are you? The morning. Thank you for having me on your one of the groups who is supporting this effort to make it easier for parents to find out on a campus by campus basis. The number of kids who have not been vaccinated. Why in a nutshell are you doing this? Well, we believe it's an issue of transparency, you know, one of the things we're most concerned about related to that team. Preventable diseases are disease outbreaks, and you know, as, you know, unfortunately, Washington state is in in a state of emergency. Because of the number of measles cases, set of occurred thus far this year. And in Texas, we've already seen six cases of measles and needs soak in cages, and they tend to they tend to cluster in different parts of our communities and schools are one of those areas that likes to harbor illnesses and. We believe that. Currently the way the data are reported at a at a district level veteran. Tell us or doesn't give us the entire picture of the health of the individual school. So if you think about it, if you have a parent, for example, who has a child who is immune compromised, or is undergoing chemotherapy, those children cannot be back naked. And so they need their schools have high unionisation rates in order to protect ban. But the district level just gives you a snapshot really all it's all based on campus, gravel information. So as a parent is trying to make the decision trying to make an informed decision as to where to send their child. They've got this data available to either try to get their child to another school that does have high immunization rates or possibly find in an alternative learning environment. So recommend question to you is. Is in doing that in knowing campus by campus? I know a lot of these schools districts are zoned for where you live in that area with this. Then allow you if the school that you are supposed to go to zone to go to has a high rate of unvaccinated students, would you be able to move within the district? There are some districts that allow flexibility, and again, it's going to be based on a district by district basis. However, it's additional information for that. Parents you know to to help make that decision. So for example, if there's a campus that, you know, has, you know, higher exemption rates that parents could decide. Okay. You know, maybe that's not the right school for my child right now, it's going to be better for me to home school about child. But again, the more information a parent has the better would be for them to make the right decision for their child and for their family or their safeguards in this proposal to keep people from learning the specific names of the kids who are not vaccinated. Well, I think it's extremely important to remember. And to understand that the data that would be made how Blake is be identified. Meaning there are no name, and it's aggregated. So it's going to be a row. Percentage, though, for example, you know, a either the exemption rates are point zero five percents. There's there's nothing in the proposed legislation that is going to violate privacy, or or share out individuals names or any kind of identifying information does it specify particular types of vaccines or or is it just an overall rate. It's an overall rate in terms of you know, kind of immunization information, so exemption rates. All right. And this would also require the state of Texas, the health department and the Texas education agency to make reports what are those reports. And what's the purpose of those? Well, every year school districts, our half king report, the number of exemptions filed within their school districts, and what we're what we're saying is these data are already collected. So this is not a new process school districts are going to have to go through. It's just another way of collating and reporting the data back into the state health department. So if you have an ISP with a, you know, a hundred campuses when the ISD has to report the data and in the fall, so every an independent school district report data. In the fall, they have to collect each campus level data and roll it up into an aggregate so arm, and then that independent school district. Ada is been sensitization. So this just sort of. It's already uses existing data already collected. But it's just reported in a different manner. We're talking live on the market Melinda. Show NewsRadio KLBJ with record Lakshman director of advocacy and public policy for the immunization partnership. It's a Houston nonprofit, and they're supporting an effort by some state lawmakers to give parents the ability to find out on a campus by campus basis, the percentage of students at that campus who have not been vaccinated and to do. So without an open records request right now parents can only find out on a school district wide basis. For example, a ISD Leander lake Travis round rock, you can find out on a full district wide basis. This effort is to really pinpoint at school by school, and you're working on this. What did you think your chances are getting this approved by state lawmakers? Well, I mean, we'll we'll see you know, I think there's. There's a different level of interest the session. Related to immunization again. Because of the recent outbreaks we've seen in other parts of the country and what we're starting to see here in Texas. In fact, yesterday believe another case of measles was confirmed in Denton. And so we're starting to see more and more cases emerge, and you know, we're really worried that we're on the brink of other public health crisis. And again, we always use nasal marker. Because it's so highly infectious and contagious either to kind of put it another way if you are in a room with, you know, individuals who are not back stated, and there's a case of measles sets introduced in that room. There's a ninety percent chance that you know, those people are are are going to be infected. And so I think we'll have to wait and see we're still very early session. A Bill has been filed the Senate Bill three two nine, and it was filed by Senator fellas from Amarillo, and you know, we will you know, continue to wholeheartedly support data transparency and giving. Parents better information to bake good decisions. What are the comments that strikes me in the article in the Dallas Morning News reporting on this effort is from a parent who has chosen not to have her children vaccinated, she's expressing the concern record that this will lead to problems? Because inevitably some parents who have vaccinated their kids will continue searching, which ones have not been vaccinated. And there will be pressure pressure from the crowd on those who have chosen not to get vaccinated. How do you respond to that? Well, I mean in Texas, parents, you know, has the ability to choose whether or not they they want to vaccinate their children and nothing in this proposed piece of legislation suggests that parents ability or their right to to choose whether or not to toback khanate is is going to be removed. And again, I think it's really important to remember that the data is it's an aggregated aggregated number. You know, it's the intent is not to drill down to the individual. It really is there to give a snapshot of the health of the child school very similarly to data collected on school performance. You know, we we know how schools perform on how children perform on. Scores. But you know, to my knowledge, I don't think there's been an effort to make to figure out you know, where children stand on their learning abilities similar. We have data on screen. You know, frightened children who get free and reduced lunches. So again, this is just I think part of an overall report card if you wanna call call it that way about about about the school, and specifically the health of that school when it comes to the health of their child, though, parents get very very passionate. I could see some really pushing hard to find out. All right, which ones are the ones who are not vaccinated. I could see that coming about in some cases. I mean, I think I think we can all agree on we just want. What's best for our children, and we want we want our children to be an safe and healthy environment. I think it's also important to remember that, you know, parent, you know, parents on on another side also have that right to know whether or not their child wall is is healthy though. Again, whore information is is better. And this is just part of that process. We're talking live with wreck Lakshmana and about this effort in the Texas legislature to allow parents to get a campus by campus report on the percentage of kids at that particular campus who have not been vaccinated and to do..

The mayor of accounting, Texas, says A wall will not solve the realities of the border problems. Jim darling says hundreds of Silom seekers who come to the US legally ended up in mcallen every few days. Here's a portion of what he said. You know, I hate to call it a crisis because really the crisis technically, I guess is getting the people here because of the journey through Mexico leaving everything having Central America. I think we need to do immigration reform. But until the government keeps dropping him off on our doorstep. We're going to have to deal with it. And so we deal with it and Catholic charities enough. We have our ups and downs. No, we moved into a new facility that we have problems is no basic, it gets we had problems at a lot of the people that were coming ever used the toilet before we had to train basic some of the basic things like that. So it's it's amazing. The different challenges. But I certainly wouldn't call it a crisis. You know, that's where all the, publicity and the wall is a crisis on the border because depiction is five hundred people were getting are illegal illegal aliens. And technically when we get in their legal waiting. You're hearing. I hate to use the word crisis on the board. Are you seeing any effects of the government shutdown in far as processing these folks, not sort of thing? Yeah. I mean know we have a huge contingent of border patrol and see VP officers. And so it's a strain on them. No doubt about it is ministered people are laid off. I guess nobody figures that they have any administrative duties to support the guys in the field. And so on their our neighbors, and our friends, etc. And they're not getting paid in there working. And I'm sure that it's disrupting operations. We had a final briefing before the shutdown happened with them in they have contingencies. But it's serious stressing their systems and think if you had the ear of the president and congressional leaders what would. Did you tell them about their border wall stalemate? Get compromise. Is what politics is all about him. This was local government. You quitting south this problem for at least five years now get new people in there to do it. But I just can't understand it. I know Senator Cornyn has made attempts in number two guy in the Senate. No, we listened apparently not listening to him from his standpoint. And I think you know, he knows Patrick border and anybody else he's been down here. More than anybody else. Border security is important, but a while especially where you have a river that's a relatively efficient deterrent, and you have lights twice a property that are going to be cut off from going. We call it the new border. It's important to take a look at that. It's not like Arizona to earn Mexico or the main parts of California where there's no border. You don't know where it is. Now, we know where border isn't we have one? And so I think when you take into consideration logical criteria property ownership in really effectiveness and border security just saying the walls awhile. I think the effective way to protect our border, Jim darling. He is the mayor of macallan, Texas where the president was earlier today. And that interview is available on the Texas standard website.

Shelby says shutdown "could last a long, long time"

"Tuscaloosa, Alabama is Republican Senator Richard Shelby. He's one of the most powerful groups in congress. He runs the appropriations committee Senator Shelby and his fellow members control government spending. Senator welcome to face the nation. Thank you. Sir. Forty seven percent of Americans blame the president for the shutdown. Thirty three percent blame Democrats. According to the latest Reuters poll where do negotiations stand? Our negotiations are at an impasse at the moment. I wish it were not so but we've got to move away from the blame game the blaming the president blaming the Democrats Pelosi and Schumer and others and get back to doing what we're sent there to do to fund the government that's been my mandate. That's what we've been working hard this year in a bipartisan way on the appropriations committee central Lahey. The Senator from Vermont is the ranking democrat on the committee. I believe if people would help us along would do what we did with the seventy five percent that we find it at a government funded all the sooner the better. Have you spoken with the president or the White House since the shutdown began last Saturday? I had lunch with the president and the vice president last Saturday and. We talked at length about it. Had to bring it to a close out to fund the government and the president made some proposals through the vice president I made some proposals to Senator Schumer. The night before. But right now. We're at a standoff, and I think that's not good for the Senate house are America, we can do better. And we've got to figure out a way Margaret to get to. Yes. If we blame each other this could last a long long time, why is the Democrats offer to continue current levels of one point three billion and border security. Why is that not enough? Well, the president wants more as I tried to work a deal earlier on where he would get two and a half billion this year in two and a half next year. Try to have a compromise that didn't work out. I do believe that the president would like to work. Yes.

"Republicans over democrats and i think that it's a shame that we had a candidate that quite frankly is probably the worst candidate and we've had in the history of modern politics from alabama um just a really flawed candidate 'cause a lot of problems with more moderate republicans and younger republicans in particular you know i'm kinda glad that roy more is not going to be presenting us but at the same time i'm not happy because we sent a democrat to the senate right who did you vote for if i may ask i wrote in richard shelby richard shelby is the senior republican senator of alabama when you look at this vote we saw republicans initially repudiate more but then fall in line even the present united states as supported were more at the end what are your thoughts on that well i can understand that point of view you know i think with as many crazy things that went on and our election i think reasonable mons can differ on how to go about your vote in going about processing what happen i think if you characterize this election as oh trump came to alabama and loss that your mistake it's not about trump it's about ruined more and how people were protesting this canada the alabama race gave democrats some hope about making gains in 2018 and the result was interpreted by many as a black eye for the president since he ended up endorsing were more i understand you voted for president trump in 2016 idea how how do you feel about him in his leadership you know there are there are a few things i really like what the economy is doing i really like this tax package is coming through now the tweets i have concerns about but i think a lot of americans have concerns about that i'm getting in fights with the media is kind of a necessary and a distraction from the important policy goals that this administration hass david wisdom of birmingham alabama he joined us via skype thank you very much thank.

"Uh frequently what we're hearing from people who are willing more supporters is that they don't believe the charges that they are deep into a culture where the president of the united states i have frequently uses the words fake news to describe any kind of reporting that he he has he finds fault with whether it's accurate or not and so what we find for many of more supporters as they dave adopted that slogan here to say this is all fake they don't believes the uh what's a what's all nine women and and uh perhaps as many as thirty corroborating witnesses they just flatly don't believe it i mean this aspect this is an aspect all religious faith about that as well that the more uh the more dis contradicted the more that the the sort of face becomes reinforced has the fact that even alabama's senior senator richard shelby uh has publicly dissociated himself from mole who will possibly shortly be his colleague representing the state is that made any difference at all i can't say for sure but i i tend to think made makes a difference in and this is something that our paper is going to be writing about for tomorrow's addition in that is the idea that senator richard shelby has been in the united states senate for thirty years he knows how to get things done in the us that he's been stalwart at directing federal dollars to programs in the state education and economic development and when he sends out a flare that says that the more cannot get things done that he doesn't think that his way will be very successful in directing money and passing legislation i think there could be some people in the state that pay attention to that we should talk about the democrat candidate doug jones as well let's not completely on hurdles in the mould nights for democrats to win office in alabama there was a democratic governors recently 2003 dorm siegelman granted the di did light later end up in a federal prison but you know the record stands.
