"And the Senate has passed the bill to protect same sex marriage. It begs to have more. Yeah, exactly right, Paul, this has been a project of president Joe Biden, senator Chuck Schumer and House speaker Nancy Pelosi. It's pretty exciting to have this marriage equality bill come up. So we passed it a while ago in the house. We look forward to having a beautiful signing ceremony for that.

It is announced that in a Jean journal known as the iPhone city, it will roll back some of what it calls mobility controls as of November 30th. Bloomberg examiner O'Brien says a question is how well it tolerates the increased cases. Yeah, I mean, this seems to be officials attempts at still controlling the situation there, but trying to be or at least appear to be more targeted. We have sort of seen similar moves going back and forth in zhengzhou over the past couple of weeks. They locked down. They went more targeted than they had to lock down again. Now, Emma also says that they will target vaccinating seniors how that plays out will depend on the programs themselves and then how much continued resistance there is an older communities to getting vaccinated.

"Allen. And I'm Joan Jones and teddy Gilman as our producer, the top story this morning former president Trump criticizing the house January 6th committee that has issued him a subpoena. However, that panel says he has to be held accountable for what led to the violence at the capitol. We get details from WTO's Mitchell Miller today on the hill. President Trump was the only person who could get the mob to end its violent siege of the Congress. Maryland congressman Jamie Raskin, who introduced a new video showing congressional leaders trying to get help during the siege, including House speaker Nancy Pelosi and senator Chuck Schumer. They're breaking windows and ransacking our offices. The concern we have about personal safety. Personal safety to just transcend everything. Former president Trump questions why the subpoena is coming now and it's highly unlikely he'll provide testimony given that the committee is likely to disband after issuing a final report before the end of the year.

Now to that explosive Washington commander's story and we're not talking about the win on the field last night, ESPN is reporting that owner Dan Snyder hired private investigators to get information on fellow team owners and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to discourage them from trying to force him to sell the team.

People with knowledge of the agenda for next week's owners meetings in New York State, there was no plan for the owners to vote on Snyder's ownership status.

"Concealed carry gun law on Thursday. The ruling takes effect in three business days allowing time for the state to appeal. Members of gun owners of America sued the state over its new law, which went into effect in September after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the state's concealed carry laws. Here's governor Kathy hochul when she signed the legislation into law this summer. This is a moment of reckoning for us as New Yorkers and as Americans. The ruling is from chief judge Glenn su to be of the U.S. district court in Syracuse he scheduled in October 20th hearing su to be specifically blocked the portion of the law that outline you requirements for background checks for gun permits, including the disclosure of all of an applicant's social media accounts. Governor hulk who attorney general letitia James and Adams issued statements criticizing the decision. But Republican Joe pinion is campaigning to unseat longtime U.S. senator Chuck Schumer of New York at the Valentine spoke with pinion about his campaign. Mister pinion, I know you're only 39 years old and what gets you interested in serving constituents in New York at this young age. Well, look, I think for me it was looking at what was happening in the states and then juxtaposing that with what was happening with my own family. We looked at the state of economic affairs, the printing of $6 trillion like drunken sailors down in D.C. by career politicians like Chuck Schumer, a man who has been in D.C. longer than I've been alive. 42 years in Congress, 24 years in the United States and you look at the pain and suffering that people all across the state are experiencing the runaway inflation that is bankrupting people on a fixed income like those on social security. You then juxtapose that with decline shootings up 90% in New York City homicide up 30% while structuring said nothing and does nothing. And so it came to be in my mind that somebody had to do something that there had to be someone standing up for New Yorkers. And after 24 years, New Yorkers have a real chance to have a real choice to say that what has happened on Chuck Schumer's watch over the last 24 years in the sense and 42 years in Congress is simply unacceptable. It is said that people vote on their pocketbook. How would you grapple with the issue of inflation? Well, look, first and foremost, you have to set an economic framework for productivity. America has always been a middle out economy. We have seen the hollowing out of the middle class because when you raise taxes in the middle of a recession in the middle of record inflation, that is a recipe for the replacement of people of medium means with deep wells of poverty. New York State currently has in Syracuse New York, the highest level of child poverty per CAPiTA in the country for any city. You turn your eyes to New York City specifically, three out of 5 black children in The Bronx who live in poverty, one out of three black children in the state live in poverty. So we have work to do.

The Long Island railroad says commuters can expect faster transit times thanks to the completion of a new ten mile third track, the new track along the railroad's main line runs from floral park to hicksville, governor Kathy hochul, touted the project completion yesterday in Nassau county. What does this mean for long islanders? Well, it's great. They all start with the letter F if your delays, faster commutes, and more frequent trips.

"Act. Let's get to Elon mui on the fast line. He's got the details, Elon. Yeah, that's right, Melissa. This is a surprise announcement from senator Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin and this package would essentially impose new taxes on corporations and the wealthy to pay for new spending on healthcare and clean energy. The deal includes a 15% corporate minimum tax on large businesses Manchin indicated that could be applied to businesses with about $1 billion in revenue or more. It would also close the carried interest loophole to step up IRS enforcement and allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices. Altogether, the senators estimate this would raise $739 billion over the next decade. And that would go toward paying for $369 billion in energy and climate policies and $64 billion toward extending the Affordable Care Act subsidies through 2025. There would be an additional $300 billion left over that would go towards paying down deficit. Now in a joint statement, Schumer and Manson said that this is a historic down payment on deficit reduction to fight inflation investment domestic energy and reduce carbon emissions. Melissa, this is going to be sent to the Senate parliamentarian tonight to get scrubbed for make sure all the language is correct. Make sure it sort of passes muster, but this plan is for the Senate to vote on this as soon as next week. Melissa. Elon, thank you. Elon muy with the latest on what is being billed as the inflation reduction act Dan, your take on this. Yeah, no, I think if these are priorities that are important to you, I think this is a big win. I think there was a time that they were hoping that this would be a bigger package. I do think that the headline that says this deal would close the carried interest loophole. That's something that's been bandied about a lot and there's been a lot of people in our business who don't want to see that happen here. So I think that's interesting that that was a part of it. All right, coming up. More details on metas quarter gene monster loop ventures will join us next to break down his thoughts on the company's results. Plus four driving higher after a big beat on the top and the bottom lines of what's the details from the report when fast money returns. Welcome back to fast money. Take a look at shares of meta after posting its first ever revenue miss. Let's bring fast money friend gene Munster of Luke ventures from our reaction on meta's numbers. He's been dialed into the call since the top of the hour. Any highlights from the call so far in your view, gene, and what did you make of the quarter overall? Melissa was bad as a shareholder. It was bad, but about as bad as the rest of the tech companies and advertising down 1% YouTube down 5%. They guided down for 2% at the high end of their range, snap was flat. So it was negative. But there was signs of positive and you saw a little bit of movement in the stock in the aftermarket or at least when the call started, a small move up when Zuckerberg started to outline some of the impact of reels. I know you covered it earlier in this show, but let me just recap here. They've done a billion in reels revenue. I suspect that's life to date, which you implied that that's about 5% of revenue today. It was zero a year ago, engagement in it is up 30% quarter over quarter. I suspect it's probably 15% of total engagement. And lastly, it is accretive to total time spent. This is all about fighting TikTok. And it seems that they have some of the pieces in place to do just that. Hey, gene, it's Karen. One of the things I was one of your opinion on is the CAPEX cut, is it enough, or do they still need to spend so much, what are your thoughts there? Step in the right direction. They talked about being more disciplined around their hiring. They basically suggested that for 2022, they'll reduce the CAPEX by 3% versus their prior guidance. But Zuckerberg is in this mode of either get on the ship, get on board or get off. And I suspect that there's going to be future reductions as I mentioned, one of the reasons we are owners, one of the reasons is we believe that he's going to be more aggressive at some of these cuts in 2023, so I suspect that it's 3% today. It's a starting point. And I suspect we'll see more of it. And it really sets up next year to be a good year relative to earnings because all this pain that they're having right now, whether it's revenue growth or on the earnings side that should be easy comps next year. The comments that Zuckerberg has made so far about the ad spending environment gene and it being worse than before. I'm wondering if you think this is sort of sandbagging or I mean, what does this mean particularly for players out there like a snap who arguably would be much worse positioned to weather this unpredictable downturn? So he talked about the macro, the term that Cheryl used was turbulent times on the call. And they also talked about the impact of IDFA, the impact of FX. And this isn't sugar coating it. It is that you need to look at all the layers here. And part of their guidance, they're going to have a bigger FX impact. All companies are going to have a bigger FX impact. But that's something to keep into context here. And so when you think about the advertising push, they're effectively trying to wean advertisers off of stories and move them onto reels, will advertisers are pulling back and they're still finishing navigating the comps on IDFA with Apple. As a reminder, that came out in April of 2021. So this is the last full quarter where they essentially will see essentially the comps related to IDFA starts to get easier in the September quarter. So Melissa, I would say I was expecting to get on the call and then really to throw the macro under the bus and talk about advertisers moving in a different direction.

"With an awful lot to do in a short bit of time. And to bring us up to speed, we turned out our washing correspondent, Joe Matthew. He's host of sound on weekdays on Bloomberg radio. So Joe, they've got a lot to do, but you just told me that they're all at The White House at the moment, I guess. Well, a lot of them are at least a lot of Democrats as the president signs into law this gun legislation, the gun safety bill that passed a couple of weeks ago, David, but you're right. This is a very familiar scenario for democratic leaders in Congress back in town with a long to do list and a pretty short window to get things done. Keep in mind lawmakers are going to be on recess for the better part of August. Now, senator Chuck Schumer says he is plowing ahead with a reconciliation bill. I should note, by the way, Schumer tested positive for COVID just yesterday, but moving ahead with a reconciliation bill that will sound a lot like the one from last year build back better that never passed. This is a slim down version as Schumer talks with senator Joe Manchin about a final product that could include a lower prescription price plan and also a higher taxes on the wealthy to lower the deficit. The problem here is, as Chuck Schumer moves ahead with reconciliation, Mitch McConnell is hitting the brakes on the bipartisan China competes Bill. This is the one that includes the chip back. This is a major initiative that Democrats and Republicans have wanted to get done, but McConnell says Republicans will not play along if Democrats go it alone with another reconciliation bill. So this indeed is starting to sound a bit familiar here, David. Now, you mentioned the president, he's signing that gun Bill today, and he'll be on his way to the Middle East later on this week. He'll be packing his bags for a very important trip to Israel, they'll also move on to Saudi Arabia. This is another tough one. Progressives don't like this idea as they question Saudi Arabia's human rights record, Republicans are making fun of the president because he's going there essentially to ask for more oil production. They say that should be happening here domestically. We'll pick up on that Joe if you would because there was an op-ed piece by the president of the United States and in Washington Post. Right. Basically, I think perhaps addressing those progressives who don't like his going. And all the emphasis I thought was on security and the Abraham accords and geopolitics rather than the oil. Well, that's right. And The White House would like to remind you of that. And that he is also not going, they will say hat in hand to Saudi Arabia that he'll be asking all of our partners in a time of war and historically high oil and gas prices to try to up production. This is one of the difficult parts of the job here, David, and then this president will be walking a bit of a nice edge as he heads to the Middle East and tries to make his way home with good news. Okay, Joe, thank you so much for coming in from The White House. That's Joe Matthew. He's our Washington correspondent and you can catch him every day of the week at 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Bloomberg radio on sound on. And now we turn to an expert in international relations. He's bob horman of the tedman associate of divisors. He's ambassador hormat served as U.S. deputy trade representative under president George Herbert walker Bush and his undersecretary of state under president Barack Obama. So ambassador hormones, thank you so much for being with us. Pick up on the president's trip to Saudi Arabia. How much of this is about oil and inflation, I guess, and how much it is about actually national security and the region. Well, I think it's both. I think certainly is an underlying theme that we would like Saudi Arabia and indeed other gulf countries to increase oil production that would help put some downward pressure on global prices and help Americans at the pump. But it is not only about that. And I think that it may turn out to be that the big story is going to be on expanding the Abraham accords, which of course are based on efforts to increase ties, political economic and other between the gulf Arabs and Israel. And I think the fact that he's going to Israel Israel would like to see closer ties with Saudi Arabia and other gulf countries may mean that we will see some positive news, maybe substantial positive news about closer ties between Saudi Arabia and other gulf countries and Israel. The Crown prince of Saudi Arabia has to be a little bit careful because not everyone inside Arabia is a 100% enthusiastic about this. But I think you realize that in the new Middle East, there's a lot of benefit between cooperation between Saudi Arabia and Israel intelligence cooperation and of course neither of them are particularly fond of Iran and trading information on Iran and resisting Iran's nuclear growth. It's a common goal of both countries. Yeah, exactly. One thing that maybe Israel and Saudi Arabia can agree on is actually Iran. Let's turn now over to East Asia and particularly Japan. We had that tragic incident on Friday with the assassination of former prime minister Shinzo Abe of Japan. Then we had his party the LDP get a resounding victory on Sunday over in Japan. What does it say about the continued influence of Shinzo Abe and particularly his economic approach? Well, Shinjo abi was a really great prime minister of Japan really historically great. And he did a number of things when the U.S. pulled out of TPP. He resurrected it. No one thought that could be done. And now there's a very solid trade agreement between Japan and many other countries and the Pacific. Also, he's taken a much stronger view on bolstering the defense of Japan against possible incursions from China. The Chinese are pushing their influence out and into some of the smaller islands around Japan and he wants Japan to be in a position where he can push back. If need be and feels the Chinese are encroaching too much on Japanese territory or broader threat to the region. Yes, as I understand it, he was the original of the idea of a free and open indo Pacific region, something that's subsequent administration is really picked up on. But talk about China specifically. I mean, you were there with Henry Kissinger in the day when you were opening up the relations with China. What should our relationship right now be with China? Because it sounds like we're almost not talking right now. Well, that's part

to senator Chuck Schumer majority leader as he speaks on the capital steps Supreme Court invalidate row Over 80 million women live in those states If the report is accurate the decision would be an abomination an abomination one of the worst ever in modern history Of course Republicans have sought this outcome for years So you'd think they'd be celebrating such a decision but they aren't No this morning Republicans are shamefully scrambling Scrambling to try and distract from the main issue Republicans are spending all their focus on the leak because they don't want to talk about roe V wade where they know they are on the wrong side of history and on the wrong side of American people Let me say it again Republicans are spending all their focus on the leak because they don't want to focus on roe V wade where they know they're on the wrong side of history and on the wrong side of the American people Try as they might they can't distract from the truth The blame for this decision falls squarely on Senate Republicans who spent years pushing extremist judges and justices while claiming this day would never come But comet has so in light of this potential ruling I want to make three things very clear First it is our intention for the Senate to hold a vote on legislation to codify the right to an abortion in law Second a vote on this legislation is no longer an abstract exercise This is as urgent and as real as it gets We will vote to protect a woman's right to choose and every American is going to see which side every senator stands on Third to the American people I say this the elections this November will have consequences because the rights of a 100 million women are now on the ballot To help to help fight this court's awful decision I urge every American to make their voices heard this weekend this year Call your members write them call your senators write them email them text them and most of all cast your ballots This November Because if roe V wade is overturned we have to assume there's more to come The question is what will these Republicans these right-wing Republicans target and next Will they have the Supreme Court overturned griswold So they can prevent American women from contraception They may say we wouldn't do that because of precedent Why would anyone believe them anymore Well they have the Supreme Court overturned overrun ogre over fail So that they can prevent same sex marriage They may say we wouldn't do that because of precedent Why would anyone believe them Nope It's clear that they will try to turn back the clock to a time when women people of color LGBTQ people are second class citizens I do not believe the hard right will succeed I still firmly believe in my very bones The story of American democracy is the story of progress Democrats are going to fight this decision all the way for as long as it takes We will not relent we will not give up We have been listening to senator Chuck Schumer majority leader from the state of New York on the capital steps surrounded by his colleagues there really decrying this draft I'm sorry it's a draft majority opinion that would if enacted by actually overturn roe against way saying that his Republican colleagues will not defend the opinion they only attack the leak but also saying he's going to bring forward legislation urgently in the Senate to codify in effect what roe against wade said So we'll watch that closely as things develop But now we want to turn from the subject of abortion to another medical subject and that is of course COVID The cases are now up in New York City although hospitalizations are not up as high as they were And the question is where are we going and how concerned should we be For some answers we turned out to doctor Steve corwin He's president and CEO of New York Presbyterian that is ranked as the number one hospital system in the New York area So thank you for being with us doctor What are you seeing in your hospital system We're seeing an uptick in cases from the variants And it's not been a huge surge but nevertheless it's something that we're closely keeping an eye on We've not seen a big surge in ICU cases I think that's a combination of people being vaccinated boosted and quite frankly a high infection rate in the with the first omicron wave I think the positivity rate is being vastly underreported I think a lot of people are getting positive And that's got his quote unquote positives and negatives The positives is more people are getting immunity than the negatives are If you haven't been vaccinated and boosted you can get very sick So I think watchful waiting I'm hoping that this surge will be substantially less than the omicron search And we think it will be when we do our modeling Are we still making progress on vaccination I think we're making less progress on vaccination I'm a little bit concerned about making sure that we can vaccinate zero to 5 year olds I'd like to see that decision Sooner rather than later hopefully we'll get that decision in June I'm hopeful that we'll have a polyvalent vaccine in the fall meaning dealing with some of these variants and I think people will want to get boosted at that point in time But I do think we've had a lot of pushback People wanting to get back to normal lives And it's the debates on masking hence the debates on do I really need the vaccination omicron is mild So I won't get really sick from it What we found in that surge was you could get really sick if you weren't vaccinated So I'd like people to take a sort of deep breath from this right left divide and just look at trying to protect the health of the country your personal health and.

"Rare Sunday sessions underway the Senate as negotiators complete thousands of pages of text in a trillion dollars bipartisan infrastructure bill, said a majority leader Chuck Schumer, once the legislative text of the agreement is finalized and I understand it is being finalized imminently. I will offer it as a substitute amendment. As I've always promised, And then the Senate can finally begin voting on additional amendments. Given the thoroughly bipartisan nature of the bill, I expect will be able to consider all the relevant amendments and finish the bill in a matter of days. Humor says that after the work is done, he'll push through a $3.5 trillion so called human infrastructure bill for its social programs.

Does he think that the best way to prevent something bad from happening that he thinks is bad from happening in Texas is for these lawmakers to be hiding out in a different state or for them to go back and sit down at the people? The president fundamentally believes you should work together in areas where you can find agreement as he is. On the bipartisan infrastructure framework that is going to help rebuild roads and rails and bridges around our country, and also that you should be outspoken where you have concerns about affronts to democracy. That's what he did yesterday. And that's what these legislators are doing now. Now.

Little to stop the push, especially in the evenly divided sentence. Speaking of the Senate, the top Democrat there is backing a bill that would strike down a longstanding federal prohibition on marijuana, embracing a proposal that as a slim shot of becoming law but demonstrates growing public support for Decriminalizing it as Senator Chuck Schumer and the legislation co sponsor as Senator Cory Booker said the bill would treat marijuana much like alcohol or tobacco, allowing it to be taxed. And it regulated. So today is a big day in the Senate for the first time. Highest majority leader. Senator Wyden is the chairman of the Finance Committee and Senator book or one of the foremost champions for justice and equity here in the Senate. We are all joining together to release draft legislation to end the federal prohibition on cannabis. This is monumental because at long last We are taking steps in the Senate to right the wrongs of the failed war on drugs. I was the first Democratic leader to come out. For the legalization of marijuana, and I will use my clout as majority leader to make this a priority. This is a grievous reality lives are being destroyed every single day. And the hypocrisy of this Is that right here in the capital now people running for Congress people running for Senate. People running for president of the United States readily admit That they've used marijuana. We have Children in this country. People all over this nation are veterans. Black and brown people, low income people now bearing the stain of having a criminal conviction for doing things that half of the last four presidents admitted to doing. Senate leader. Schumer acknowledged that not all Democrats support the bill that includes the president to city supports decriminalizing marijuana, but believes the federal prohibition should remain, and that's what Causing headaches for the industry is 18 states have legalized recreational use and 37 allow for is some sort of medical marijuana. Chris Middleton and Devin Booker shot the lights out Wednesday night. But it was Middleton's 40, including 10, straight for Milwaukee down the stretch that sent the Bucks past the Sons 1091 of three Wednesday in Game four of the finals.

Obamacare would get a big (and quiet) overhaul in the Covid relief bill
"The covid nineteen relief bill. That passed the house on saturday and is now making its way through. The senate includes an expansion of the affordable care act health care legislation. It would be the first significant expansion of the aca also known as obamacare since it passed in two thousand ten white house correspondent marine groppy reports. This would primarily helped people in two ways. One is for the first time people who are making more than four times. The federal poverty level will become eligible for help paying their premiums so for example if a sixty four year old woman is making fifty thousand dollars. Right now she's not eligible for help but under the law for the next two years she could get subsidies that could make her premium dropped from about thirteen thousand dollars a year to just about five thousand dollars a year. Secondly people who make one hundred and fifty percent of the federal poverty line could get additional subsidy help they already qualify now but the extra help would allow them to buy plans without premiums that have much lower deductibles than what they can afford right. Now there's also incentives in the bill to For the twelve states that have not expanded medicaid under the aca to give them extra money in hopes that they will do so to cover people below poverty in their states who don't currently qualify for medicaid. These changes that are in. The bill are expected to stay in the question for whether they become law is whether the entire bill passes. It's not expect to get much. If any republican support. The democrats need to stay united in order to pass the legislation and get it to president biden's desk and these are provisions that he has promised he has supported and once in there and he's expected to sign the bill into law go relief plan which also includes fourteen hundred dollar checks too many americans and more could enter.
