"Thurston senator Scott Weiner is going to be joining us in studio soon he should be here within I don't know five or ten minutes I wanted to give you some information though because you know when information comes out the same correct I think it's really important that we corrected in this case what we're talking about is the CDC and funding to the CDC there have been claims that have been made by a number of people including some of the democratic presidential candidates I'm not sure Bernie was one of them but Warren was Biden was Bloomberg was one that the trump administration had cut the budget of the centers for disease control and prevention the CDC that is not exactly correct and that's what I wanted to fix here the budget that Donald Trump has presented for twenty twenty one his budget request but this has not been enacted his budget request would indeed trim funding for the CDC by almost sixteen percent HHS officials say they want the CDC to focus on its core mission of preventing and controlling infectious diseases and on other emerging public health issues such as opioid abuse officials proposed to take the money that would normally go to fund individual dis from disease prevention activities and bundle it funnel it excuse me into a single block grant to states the budget says chronic diseases like heart disease stroke and diabetes have common risk factors and thus consolidating funds can help magnify the public health impact so the budget reduces overall funding from global health up for global health from five hundred seventy one million to five hundred and thirty two million in twenty twenty one officials carved out an extra fifty million for global health security those are measures aimed at disease detection and emergency but that bump was taken out of of the of the budget for the international HIV aids programs that's being cut by fifty eight million dollars and then fifty millions of the of that fifty million of that is going to the global health security now that's for twenty twenty one that's not to say that the administration has a proposed cuts to the CDC budget in the past they have Donald Trump proposed cuts to CDC in twenty twenty but it wasn't passed it was the Congress to stop it so he has asked for the CDC they're budgeting to be caught up but the Congress and we're talking about bipartisan support in the Congress for both the CDC and the N. I. H. so they wouldn't hear of having those budgets cut as a matter of fact for the twenty twenty budget the funding was increased it's also true though that in twenty eighteen the trump administration did fire key official officials who are connected to the U. S. pandemic response they were fired and they were never replaced yeah okay there's also there are also there were news reports circulating that detail the trump administration's cut by eighty percent of the CDC's program that worked in various countries to fight epidemics including China Pakistan Haiti Rwanda and Congo that was reported by The Washington Post in twenty eighteen the fact that those efforts had been scaled back I mean that's true that's real that was reported by The Washington Post that actually happened that was in twenty eighteen and so people are paying attention to that because of course China was where the corona virus outbreak originated and then it has spread globally after was first detected in Wuhan all right so there's that and I just wanted to correct it so that we understand that while he wanted to cut the funding to the CDC in twenty and twenty one it didn't if we don't have the budget yet for twenty one and the budget for twenty that cut was rejected in a bipartisan way from the Congress now we talk about how to rejuvenate it in China where is it today how many countries are afflicted does anybody know anybody anyone anyone I look this up because there were a few more that were added just today so course it originated in China you got Hong Kong you got like how you got Taiwan we also have a cases in Afghanistan Algeria Australia Austria Bahrain Alaris Belgium Brazil Cambodia Canada Croatia Denmark Estonia Egypt Finland France Georgia Germany Greece India Iran Iraq Israel Italy Japan Kuwait Lebanon Lithuania Malaysia Mexico Nepal Netherlands New Zealand Nigeria north Macedonia Norway Oman pack stab Philippines Romania Russia said marry is San Marino Singapore Spain Sri Lanka Sweden Switzerland Thailand the Republic of Korea United Arab Emirates United Kingdom United States and Vietnam yeah there's a there are you know I look at the map that they have and there are very few places that are left out I see nothing in Alaska I see on the Pacific coast of South America that seems to not have been affected yet or not yet detected most of Africa has not been affected Greenland has not been affected and there are some spots in Asia and in Europe that have not yet been affected but you know it's this is changing every single day this is changing and new cases are being detected there's also I just want to say this because I read about this this morning and I was absolutely stunned the testing kits were not reliable the testing kits the CDC sent out they didn't send out nearly enough of them but they sent them to some major cities in the United States they haven't been able to use those testing kits and it's so bad and now the CDC is saying we'll go ahead and use them there's a second part of the testing kit where it could actually make a detection of murders and sars because those two are corona viruses but they've told people to go ahead and use the testing kids some US states don't want to do that they're in the process of developing their own and New York has decided that they're going to develop their own because the CDC has been so bad at providing testing kits and the importance of this because right now the numbers that we're talking about in comparison with like the the influenza which is seasonal I mean it happens every single year there are thousands and thousands and thousands of people who died there tens of thousands of people die here in the United States of America during a bad flu season it happens all the time SO in comparison to those numbers right now the mortality is minuscule but these things start somewhere and before you can take really good steps solid steps intelligence steps to thwart it the first thing you have to know is where it is how widespread it is who's got it where did they get it kind of trace it back to the vector if you possibly can to determine if most of these things are coming from China we know now that there's a case in Solano where they can make no connection with traveler any person who did travel with this individual which is kind of scary it's scaring to a scary to a lot of epidemiologists because they need to know where the this woman contracted this disease and she's in pretty bad condition right now she's a she's not in great shape that's another thing when she first sought medical assistance she wasn't tested initially for this and there are a lot of medical care providers who were exposed to her giving her health care without taking precautions for infectious disease that may have prevented this up but it may have helped to prevent them from contracting the disease and remember what we said yesterday that sometimes coronavirus is a symptomatic to somebody who has it and if it is a symptomatic the problem is that person has no idea that their contagious them have any symptoms so they don't think they're contagious we need these testing kits and we need them in widespread use so that we really can't determine how big an issue this is it'll also give us a better indication of what the real mortality rates are because if we're going by wrong data if we're going by a lesser number and then we have the cases of mortality that means that we're talking about a two to three percent mortality rate when when you actually expose the numbers of more mild cases cases that are even a symptomatic the mortality rate could come down substantially but the infectious rate the rate that's being spread of pop a spread around could become substantially higher eighty eighty eight ten is the telephone number eighty eighty eight tennis got a bill in Los Gatiss Hey bill welcome to KGO tape that thanks again for taking my call I couldn't he at once I heard about the Mexico situation where those people came back from Italy and then a lot of people I'd realize flying to Mexico before they come up through our southern border I was thinking if we had a democratic president that had you know health care Medicaid for everyone Medicare for everyone and we had relaxed borders is a lot of them seem to want could we actually handled the numbers that would come flooding in here you mean people who are eight inspections sewer flooding in yeah just people in general worrying about getting it if it really does spread around in Mexico which you could very easily they would be going to where the health care try to get their health care taking care of yeah right well first of all I think it's important to point out that I don't think anybody in the democratic field and nobody that I've ever spoken to Democrat Republican or otherwise is supportive of open borders so people want to be able to control who comes into our country and how when you're talking about infectious diseases I think especially something like this I think you have to screen people but on the other hand I gotta tell you this if there are people who are suffering in neighboring countries who are suffering and if we have a way to detect that they don't if we have a way to treat which they don't if we have a vaccine which they don't I think it is incumbent upon us because of global health concerns you know that concerns every single one of us in addition to every other country in the world we have to be able to help provide those services not here in the United States but in those countries themselves so that they can treat their own citizenry if we had a Medicare for all of course our own citizenry would be treated much better and we would know that we would have access to whatever vaccines are made available for something like this in order to control it there would not be a cost concern for individuals here in the United States listen I'm on the break here I need to take a break I think Scott Weiner may be here and if so we're going to move to that but we will talk more about corona virus we're gonna be joined by Kenneth C. Davis at the top of the one o'clock hour I can wrote a book this a couple years ago and it's called more deadly than war and it's about the Spanish flu outbreak during World War one and horrible that was and the incredible mortality rate and how that spread so he's going to be talking us with what about that then we're gonna take a break here we'll be right back with state senator Scott Wiener you're listening to KGO they're still on KGO eight ten it's.

"Couple of points. I wanna make the first is that coming to the legislature and demanding a annual bailout is worse than bankruptcy, and that's the direction PGA looks like it's going, and as we can see not even the legislature has an appetite for that. But more fundamentally the PG any management is in such disarray. That I am worried that no amount of money is going to be enough to get us wildfire safety. No amount of money is going to be enough to keep them out of bankruptcy because they have a management and board that. Needs to be replaced. We need to replace financial people and legal people were running the company with people who know how to run electric operations gap operations. We need faith engineers, we need wildfire experts. That's we need elitist it at PG need, not the finance and legal people who have driven it into the ground. Talking about replacing people. What about replacing the company a lot of public? Power advocates are looking to this as their opportunity to try to move electric production and distribution away from shareholder own for profit entities. Even Scott Weiner made reference to that in his official statement yesterday. This could be a time for San Francisco. Consider public power. I'd like to see those proposals. What they look like see how the public entities proposed to those.

"We take a call right off the bat here and get a sense of what's going on? We go all the way to Sherman oaks Patricia is here right now. But Tricia, welcome the KBC. Hi there. Yeah. I this is probably one of the worst things that our legislators could do for public health, generally, I side with governor Brown, and it was very courageous of him because he is a democrat. So it's Scott Weiner. I side with him for saying it's gonna put more DUI's on the road, that alone is a reason. But you know, what we got politicians that talk out of both sides of their mouth. For instance, we have a horrible homeless problem in Los Angeles. San Francisco every one of those cities that you mentioned has a homeless issue. And if people don't realize that it didn't start with the drug of alcohol, they are uninformed because it did start with the drug and alcohol still considered the entry level drugs. You were discussing a someone who passed away possibly from a drug overdose. Ninety nine percent of the people who are involved in other kinds of drugs starting with the first drug of choice, which is alcohol people do not start out saying I want to be an alcoholic on that basis. Should we make alcohol illegal? We tried that once it's a stupid question. Yeah. But but you understand. No, no, we should not. But we shouldn't be putting more gasoline on the fire. Okay. Patricia. Thank you so much. Another thing. Everybody needs to go to Scott wieners webpage. It's Sacramento state legislator from the eleventh district in San Francisco and see what else he proposes? He's the one that's in favor of the stack impact plan for making high rise apartment without any parking provision. He's gonna let the developers get away with not including parking provision. There. Are there are other things that he is in favor of he's a bright, man. But he would've wanted to biology class than I thought. The tricia. Thank you very much. The Patricia Scott wintered dinner tonight has been cancelled in case people are wondering wasn't enough parking go to Cyprus, David. Welcome KABC. How you doing good? Thank you. What do you think? No, absolutely not. We have enough drunk drivers on the road. And it's a real problem. Anyways, you know, more people die from alcohol. I got rear ended by drunk driver a year ago at one thirty in the morning total. My car had to go to the hospital and every day you see drunk drivers on the road and running red lights and killing people and we've got to cut it off to in the morning, sir. All right, David. Thank you very much. You know, there is an argument that says that if you extend the cutoff time, you're actually going to have fewer drunks because people tend to drag faster and more because the going to close they'll wait. And they'll maybe so we're up were they'll drink more responsibly and they'll drink more slowly. And it's interesting. I think the caller show a real sense. I mean, it's what I said. Which is I'm scared. I don't wanna be on the road. If there's drunk drivers if there's a way to prevent that. And I'm comfortable with the government doing that. Why not close at midnight? Well, I think that that would be just politically untenable. And then I mean, you're right. So this is like everything in life. It's a gray. And where do we hit in terms of that tipping point of people just saying two things one? I'm just gonna drink really quickly at eleven thirty or I mean, how many people would really adhere to that law, and how much do we just create kind of an underground system of bars that are open. I mean, this is one of the things that we talk about when this is the first year where we've legalized marijuana. It hasn't worked out the way we thought it would. And in part, I think that's because there's so many regulations that there's a very vigorous and healthy underground system of selling marijuana still. Do you think people are more comfortable sometimes getting their marijuana illegally than legally? Yes. In part because I will say that. I I actually don't have experience in this area. But I think in part it's habit and for me. It still would be so surprising to be able to walk in broad daylight to shop. You want to go to your friend Benny down the street in by from him. But because Benny is what we always said, we always met or not I shouldn't say, okay, right? It's my that's what my friends would do, and that's much more of the culture. And that's what was accepted one eight hundred two two two five two two two. I was talking to you about this before the show. When we talk about alcohol and we talk about marijuana. Marijuana was the devil stuff. Harry and Slinger the head of the first drug enforcement. Whatever said, it'll kill you. If you take it it'll kill you in the movies came out Reefer madness. You took it you turn into some kind of weird zombie thing. Whatever. But alcohols, okay. Now, the truth is I think it's cultural in other words of marijuana was around. I we might be having these conversations about you. We legalize alcohol. This what you agree with me? I think that it is largely cultural, and I think again, it's based on what we're comfortable with. And the example I used to with you beforehand was here we eat chicken. And that's why we don't eat dog. What if we lived in a different society where it was completely normally dog, but chickens that's just Louis shady's? You eat those little clicking thing. That's disgusting. Little chickens that you can pet chicken. Okay. That's good. They provide you with eggs. You can't later eat that one eight hundred two two two KABC David Woodland Hills. We've got a different point of view here. Hey, david. I read that when when you have a four a m a limit people don't binge drink as much because it's going to close I've been to Europe and other cities. In the US were it's it's four and five AM all night, and they handle it. Very well. And I think with Uber. It's not gonna be a big health problem. And I think the last person is over over to concerned about something that well really won't be a problem in a really help the economies of those cities so much of this is based on our life experience. If you've been rear ended by a drunk driver. Like, the last caller, then you really don't you want to do everything you can to get drunk drivers off the street, but David who's been to Europe and says they handle it for particularly. Well, says we should be more worried about binge drinkers. And I mean, I think this is so many hot button political issues. It's whatever our particular, David. Thank you very much for calling. There is something to be said. And by the way, the argument for this is to create a thriving community at three AM in the morning. And if you go to other countries and sometimes other cities as well, there is a street life. And there is a vitality going on at three am in the morning. It's shocking to us. But I think that that's based on so much more than the idea that you could keep bars open. I mean that is such a different cultural environment, it's different expectations. They're not just going to bars. I mean, they're also going restaurants. Everything is open later. And so I think that it's not a hop skip. And a jump from last four AM to all of a sudden, we have a thriving artistic scene. What we like, simple statements. Don't we? I'm all for America, by the way. Let me let me get back to this with you. The legalization of marijuana. It's a cultural thing for some people. It's a moral issue to legal issue. But demographically marijuana seems to be here to stay the network two and a half generations deep into it. Now, where it's more of a usual thing was it a mistake to legalize it. I think it was inevitable. I think that the question for me is maybe was in a mistake to legalize it the way we did. So the way we legalized it is one through a fairly kind of Byzantine regulatory process. The other way, we we legalized it is that we have this kind of very slow roll out where we provide permits through the state, but then we're waiting on a local level to see if localities will allow or ban marijuana. And then if a locality meaning county or a city says guess we can't have marijuana. Then we also have to look to see what their taxes are. So for some people the taxes, for instance, in LA can be. I think is highest thirty four percent, which means what do you wanna do? If you want to sell marijuana, you probably just wanna stay out of the system period. Not register. Yes. But you know, what are the arguments by legalizing drugs in general is take the criminality out of it. Right. Take the Mexican cartels out of it. Take the people who are a dipping kids on the street because. They live in a another world when this is happening. Is it naive to think? Once you legalize that all goes away. No, I don't think it's naive to think it all goes away. And I think that for all the reasons that you said one I think it was as I said inevitable that we're going to legalize if you look at the demographics. If you look at the people who are going to age into the big voting block, it was now or a few election cycles from now. But I think that there's absolutely something to be said for we're going to regulate marijuana. We're gonna make sure that it's safer. But if you look at what's happening, for instance, in California in Colorado in Oregon, there's really varying degrees of success and the laws are still trying to catch up with behavior. For instance, you know, how are we gonna treat edibles? How are we going to? This is a big issue. Advertise to minors. For all the people who push marijuana and say, listen makes my life better makes me feel good it eases. My pain. It relaxes me. So I can go into a party be comfortable. And all of that. It's naive. Not to think that there is a downside medically physically biologically as well. Once again, if there's a gray area that exists here. Peter hang on. You got something. You wanna tell us here?

Jeff bell and Patty rising earlier tonight. Phil tell us about the loophole. Here's the penal code states that the difference between sort of felony auto, burglary and misdemeanor. Our theft out of a car is whether or not this car door is locked that might sound a little strange. I mean, somebody busted a window in your car, you'd think okay that's auto burglary. It's a felony. But no under California law that goes back decades the door has to be proven to been locked now. It's like I said, it's pretty strange because if your house gets burglarized through the window, nobody comes in and says was the door law, but you have to prove that the door walk and that has led to well a number of people being charged with a lesser offence of theft from an auto which often results in going on probation. And as George Gascons explained today's conference that can mean a basic get out of jail card probation back on the streets probation back on the streets probation back on the street, and he wants to change it. Okay. So here's the explanation. I need from you, Scott. Peter put this forward before he didn't make it out of committee. Why would anybody be against this plan? Whereas interesting it made it out of the public hearings. Jeff, and I think that if it got on the Senate floor and on the house for where everybody had to publicly vote thumbs up or thumbs down it would pass. And I think the governor would wherever the governor is would be hard pressed to sign that. But last year when you tried it what they did is they steer got steered into called the appropriations committee were all the bills are put in considered together. And that is where they hit the brakes on them without any votes. So it never got out of appropriations. It was never heard an appropriations. It was never voted on an appropriations why? Well, there was pressure.

That's what's Scott Weiner is hoping changes with some new faces in Sacramento. I was wondering about that. Because I was with Jeff who would oppose that, you know, the car burglars. Do not have their own lobbying benefactor memento. No. But they have a group that says we're criminalizing too. Many people were putting people too many people in jail, and there's just a real reluctance to make crime harder to make to make the sentencing harder or to make the laws tougher. It's a trend. We're seeing in the state, and we we've seen it repeatedly. And whether or not that continues is like I said if at first you don't succeed Rina's gonna try again. And I wonder now that more light is being shined on this particular topic if it's more likely to get through Sacramento as well. Like, you said he says, he get it. If it's a public vote he wins.

U.S. sues after California governor signs 'net neutrality' law
"Attorney general Jeff Sessions has filed a lawsuit against the state of California over its efforts to implement net neutrality protections for the state's consumers KCBS is Jeffrey Schaub reports. The Justice Department's action came yesterday the same day governor Brown signed net neutrality legislation into law. California state Senator Scott Weiner, says internet providers want free rein over what you can access on the web. And he says the state's new net neutrality law protects consumers neutrality is about companies like AT and T and then in Comcast in order to make money manipulating where you go on the internet. Basically, they want to turn the internet into cable TV where you have a limited set of. Option of where you can go. And that is the absolute opposite of what the net is. We should be able to make those decisions for ourselves. The FCC under the Trump administration reversed years of government policies mandating internet neutrality, California and a handful of other states now have their own laws. But the Justice department claims only Washington has the right to regulate interstate commerce Weiner says he does not believe the FCC has the right to preempt state law.
FCC chairman says California’s net neutrality bill is ‘egregious’ and ‘illegal’
"Governor Jerry Brown has not indicated whether he will sign or veto the net neutrality Bill sitting on his desk. But the chairman of the FCC is now weighing in with his opinion. Larry, what is he saying? Well, he's claiming that if the illegal with the pie who the chairman appointed Republican chairman, and of course, as you know, the FCC repealed, the network neutrality Bill that was the rule that was passed by the laughed Pepsi where the Democrats were in charge, so California along with a few other states have taken upon themselves to create their own network neutrality Bill within the state and that has been passed by the legislature. It's waiting the governor's signature. I'm assuming the governor will find it a I'm not certain about that. But the bottom line is at the FCC chairman of claiming that this should all be done on a national basis on a federal basis that you can't break up the internet into little state that it all has to be done. In a coordinated way. However, another argument that's been made by Scott Weiner legislator who with behind one legislative behind the Bill is at the FCC, essentially, abandoned, its control over the internet or lethal. I should say not of the internet over over of network you chat net neutrality and this nation because they have essentially repealed, it also the other argument could be made that internet service providers operate within states. I mean. Yes com. Comcast and others, maybe national, but they're operating within California. They could very well. Create a law that only applied California is Weiner points out to pie did not weigh in on the whole debate over Reisen throttling. Data for firefighters during that big wildfire. That's right. And this has become very positive. I don't know why that would be political. But certainly the entire net neutrality debate has become very political. But the fact that the FCC has basically said, hey, we're not going to get involved. You know, we're we're just basically going to allow it to happen. And I don't know anything, you know, this is something I guess could be tested in court. But certainly the state of California has a vested interest to try to protect its own citizens. And we'll have to see whether a court might rule in favor of the fear. They might say, yeah. The California Las dance. Meantime, we are waiting on California governor Jerry
