Planned Parenthood Improperly Claimed $80 Million in Coronavirus-Relief Loans
"Morning which organizations should get money from the federal government's coronavirus relief programs like many Planned Parenthood chapters around this country received funds from the paycheck protection program several Republican senators now want Planned Parenthood to return the money NPR national correspondent Jeremy cameras on the story Sarah good morning good morning Steve what did the Planned Parenthood chapters receive exactly so what we're talking about is the federal loan program under what's known as the cares act the one meant to keep small business workers on the payroll during this crisis so small businesses and small nonprofits with fewer than five hundred employees can apply for forgivable loans and it's important to note that while Planned Parenthood federation of America is a big national organization the national groups as they did not apply for these funds instead it's the local Planned Parenthood organizations that operate clinics around the country that received the money I talked with Stephanie frame the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of southwest and central Florida she says they got a little over two million dollars mostly to cover employee paychecks economic uncertainty at that moment was profound and the two weeks while we waited for this loan we spent having some very tough conversations about what we do we didn't get a strong so it's not clear how much Planned Parenthood or its affiliated groups have applied for or received nation wide fox news has reported and some Republican senators have repeated a figure of eighty million dollars combined nationally but the small business administration which administrates these loans would only say that the agency doesn't comment on individual borrowers okay but in any case the money was loaned to these Planned Parenthood chapters loans that they may not have to pay back if they keep people on the payroll like a lot of other businesses and non profits but this particular nonprofit does work that some Republican lawmakers are ideologically opposed to what they say right a Florida senator Marco Rubio who's chairman of the Senate small business committee says that Planned Parenthood isn't eligible for these funds under the program's rules he wants the money returned immediately he wants the SBA the small business administration to investigate why and how Planned Parenthood got the money and I talked with Republican senator James Lankford of Oklahoma who's also objected to this he also wants Planned Parenthood to send the money back that's what the Los Angeles Lakers are done that's what check check is done that's where risk Chris is done so other organizations arms exposed that they should not taken the money have returned the money so that would be the reasonable thing for them to be able to beat and Lankford says because Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide have many more than five hundred employees combined they don't qualify so Steve there's some dispute about how to interpret these rules but let's not forget there is a big political element to this I mean currently it is illegal in most cases for federal funds to pay for abortion but there is a long standing political debate about any federal funds going to Planned Parenthood because of what it has come to represent about the national debate around abortion and of course Planned Parenthood has argued they do a whole lot more than that perform abortions how is Planned Parenthood responding to the specific criticism here well they say they haven't received word from the SBA small business administration about this they only know what Republican senators are saying and what's been reported by fox which says that the SBA has sent a letter to Planned Parenthood affiliates informing them that they're not eligible for this money and instructing them to return it but again SBA isn't commenting on this are you able to figure out what the rules actually say and how they actually apply to this particular organization it's hard to say for sure Steve I talked to a few lawyers about this and I'm hearing that there is just a lot of confusion Republican senators insists Planned Parenthood doesn't qualify under the rules Planned Parenthood says each local affiliate looked at the program decided whether to apply for this paycheck support but a lot of lawyers say the rules are unclear and they've been

"And but six four months five months later when things got back to normal you went ahead and hired for people You'll be able to at the end. Show that and say look. We tried to hire people. We couldn't find good. We hire most of them back but not all of them and there's an opportunity to for them to basically say all right. What will will forgive that because we understand you made real good efforts and so there's a provision in the bill for that as well cinema this brings up a really good point because a lot of small business owners asking what happens if I've already closed my business down you know. I run a SPA. I run a bowling alley. Can I still get this loan forgiveness later? It seems like you can you can and you can. Also by the way. Go back to the people you laid off and say look. I know you've been off to two weeks. I'd like to pay you for the two weeks that I laid you off or I'd like to hire you and pay you on to have you on board so that when we start your here and that's why we think many small businesses would love to be able to pay their employees. They had the money in the bank. They don't want to let their employees but they don't have the cash it depends on the industry you know there are a lot of people out there for example that might run a restaurant where you're allowed to run take out but you're not allowed to have in dining well you can't really keep your the revenues for takeout don't make sense to justify a full payroll but now with this place You might be able to bring some people back and pay them their salaries you were paying them before. And there's also by the way unrelated to the paycheck protection program but complementary to it. There's a new tax credit right that you will receive at the end of the year For whatever monies you spend on payroll so there's another incentive as well so when things get back to normal so we've tried to create a mini incentives as possible because it's good for the worker but frankly it's also good for the small business you know it's going to be tougher. Small business to shut down. Imagine the restaurant again and all of a sudden you have to go out and hire a bunch of New People that you've never worked with before you have to train from scratch that there's startup impediment. There could cook prohibit you from starting. That's really prohibit a lot of people from starting so so we wanted to address that as well. So how soon do you? You hope that the money will start flowing to small businesses. Once they've applied to the bank will frankly theoretically okay now. Every banks can have different procedures but theoretically it should be able to flow immediately. And let's say that I'm a small business. Ten employees and I have an account with the small business division of a local bank or one of the national banks. They've already confirmed that. I'm an employer domin employer. They already did all that due diligence. Today they open my account. They already know what my payroll is. I may even be using the services they provide. There are a lot of these banks provide payroll services for Small Businesses. So for them. The confirmation is instant and by the way the banks get a wrong. They're not gonNA be held liable their health harmless to that so really. There's no reason why they couldn't immediately dispersed those funds into that account Now I can't speak for every bank and with every banks going to follow that procedure. You know what I'm increasingly comfortable with. Is that the banks particularly the bigger national ones but a lot of the community ones are going to take care of their customers of their depositors. What I'm more concerned about our what happens to the people in the small businesses that either have a banking relationship with a bank that That that that doesn't participate. And that's why there was a practice of bringing additional banks into the x and what happens to those small businesses and and independent contractors who are covered by this ten ninety nine employs who may not have a regular banking arrangement. There are people that don't use the banking system from the way they conduct their business. So you know that remains to be seen but Th- that's the one. I'm more concerned about and that's why we're trying to Treasury is doing everything possible to create an alternative ramp for additional financial servicers to to to be a part of this. If you are a sole proprietor or your independent contractor in your Gig economy can you still take advantage of this program correct and they they will begin? Applications for sole proprietors will begin April tent Which is Six days from now and and and the rationale for that is They they need to create. There's we've never done that before. So they need to create a new set of forms and guidelines. For how we're going to verify aero for in those situations but the goal here is wallace to understand the nature of our economy. You know the guy that cleans your pool the guys do your landscaping people who drive a new or these folks is kind of a new dynamic in our economy that has really taken off in the last decade. And so it's GonNa take just a little bit more work to sort of create the parameters that now that doesn't mean sole proprietor. You know there are sole proprietors who are escorts and the only employees Nature they would be treated as a that that they would. They would be treated as a business concern. We're talking about people that work on the ten ninety nine basis you know and and may not necessarily be incorporated in any way But but worked for themselves and and can show some record and that's what they're creating so that that will begin to six days and for now Friday April tenth. Now my understanding is that is part of your payroll people that get paid over one hundred thousand dollars. Don't qualify the first one hundred thousand dollars to do so only up to one hundred. Yes the first one hundred dollars the first hundred thousand dollars. So if you haven't employed that makes hundred sixty you you you can pay up to the you can pay him what you want say theoretically but but when calculate what your monthly payroll is salaries over one hundred thousand dollars they will only Take the first one hundred thousand dollars into account when determining your eligibility so I asked listeners of the program to send in questions because they knew it was going to interview so I got a couple of questions I want to ask. You one comes from Chris Keith. He said that with almost ten million Americans filing unemployment last couple of weeks. Do you foresee US doing something? Like Canada. Did with covering more costs or France with his estates were payments to Americans. American business owners. Well I think that that that really is would have to be part of a whatever we're GONNA do to recover from this and I tell people and we have some experience with this. Unfortunately because the natural disasters hurricanes one of the keys is the first phase in all this is the is the The acute phase. You know the the the what we're in right now. That's the midst of the emergency. And how can we provide people assistance in the middle of the emergency and in the immediate aftermath? The second phase after any disaster is always the recovery. And what are the monies needed to recover? What are the programs that are needed to recover and so I think it's going to be very difficult right now to speculate entirely on? What all the recovery efforts are going to have to be because I think I forgot to take a damage assessment but I think you know given what we've already done a lot of options octave and I think one of the things that gives us confidence and I would separate people compare this to two thousand seven two thousand eight and even two thousand and one. There's a big difference between two thousand seventeen thousand eight and right now in two thousand seven two thousand eight. We had a sector of our economy that make bad. Decisions almost collapsed the economy with him and asked to be saved because of their bad decisions. In this case. We're talking about businesses that were doing very well Or well that were vibrant and there were viable and the government told them you cannot open you cannot function you cannot service your clients customers. Your employees can't commend. You can't operate and so we have basically ordered Business America to shut down. And so that's a very different situation from from what we've had four and the truth of the matter is if we if we go through this crisis and collapse our economy on top of it. We're not going to be able to recover. We're not GONNA be able to do some of the basic things that we're going to need in the navy after acids this and so that's why I think a lot of options on the table and I noticed thinking already going on but we're GONNA have to wait and see and have a full assessment of what this means but I do anticipate additional release Will follow this at some point question. The Franklin Koch Ask is that you really envision wants to reactivate the economy some kind of FDR approach with the new deal where we actually put people back to work creating things or infrastructure and the government or out there in the world but look I think infrastructure spending as a jobs program is always a difficult prospect. Take into account. It's a very specialized industry. We need infrastructure spending in this country and right now we do it by borrowing money basically for free so it gives the opportunity to pay for tomorrow's projects at today's prices right. So if you allow me to pay for something that cost a lot of money in the future for less money today that makes a lot of sense And so I think that is going to be a part of something that we do But but I don't I also think that this is an economy that has long sectors. That won't do it well. And that will be given. The appropriate support can go back to doing well. Future that lead. This is different from the depression. This is different from other areas in which you had some major structural issues in the economy that created the downturn. The downturn here is entirely because the government mandates the government's basically timetable. Don't travel don't go out to eat. Don't go shopping. Don't go to work so everything stops and I think the minute you list the breaks it's not going to automatically go back to the way it was but I think you're gonNA have a lot of economic activity which you don't normally get when you're in the midst of a depression. Those businesses are there and we're just trying to keep them alive so there's something to restart I think we're all hoping for that. V-shaped recovery the final question. I WANNA ask you senator. Rubio is what's your overall message for small business during this historically tough time. I would say to them number one. They're going to be a big part of this covering cut country recovering. And it's the reason why you saw so much. Bipartisan support for this program because everybody recognizes that when you look at the just the sheer volume of jobs and the sheer number of firms. In this country that qualify small businesses they represent a vast majority and And so we can't have an economic recovery that leaves behind. I envy percent of our companies and sixty percent or so jobs and everyone recognizes that the difficulties they face right now are extraordinary and unprecedented and And they don't have. I told her I was fighting on behalf of the people who don't have lines of credit that they can draw down on for thirty days. I'm talking about people that have bank accounts they can draw on for six days. You know who basically or cash in cash out every week whose hopes and dreams have been tied to these businesses and the message. I have for them. As extraordinary bipartisan support. For the industry we had no issue whatsoever. Garnering support to help them in this effort and I don't think we're going to have an issue from a partisan perspective garnering support for them in the future of. We need to do more. This is our attempt our first attempt to do something just to help you. Keep your head above water but died. I know we need to do more. We all know we need to do more. And we're prepared to do more but when the time comes we'll send a very well. Thank you so much for helping small business owners during this very difficult time.

Where do you think they really should begin in getting assistance? If they're looking for their small business well I'm GonNa tell you. Theoretically and ideally were easiest entry program and that is a bank that you already have a relationship with. Let me explain to you how it works. small business that qualifies. Meaning you may you either meet the SBA guidelines for small business or you have five hundred employees or less. It's not it's either or You go to a lender that lender be able to afford to you a grant and the amount of two hundred and fifty percent of your monthly payroll Before the crisis and before you were forced to close down or before everything started closing down and as long as you spend that money on payroll benefits rent or utilities. Those as long as you spend on a combination of those things. You won't have to pay any of it back if you decide to spend on for a different purpose it turns a year from now it turns. It doesn't become a loan into a year from now a year. From now on the books close it turns into a one percent loan I say the ideal place to go is is the bank. You already have a relationship rates.

N. dot gov forward slash team at T. E. M. A.

S. then you have in other countries it is because of the actions the president took immediately on restricting travel from China the restrictions have since placed on Italy and on South Korea analysts say also the actions that are being taken by many companies I know many companies are now placing our travel restrictions on individuals until we know more about the incubation time the covet nineteen and on the the symptoms how long the disease last things of that nature some people are are of the of the mindset senator Blackburn that the corona virus outbreak could have an effect on the the upcoming presidential election of the presidential nominating process though with with Bernie Sanders now out and he was or or at least seemingly mathematically out I don't wanna say these out loud but seemingly mathematically out it will I I would have thought he would have done better on super Tuesday as he is the man who is advocating for universal health care and that would be something that that some supporters of Bernie Sanders think would help when it comes to the outbreak of of the corona virus are are you surprised that or or are you concerned that the corona virus could have an effect on the process of electing our next president I I don't think that it will I think that knowing Tennesseans and I think many Americans are like them and they feel that our country three is when you look at the issues of security whether it is economic security national security border security and access to services like healthcare and making certain that we are addressing issues like the environment with clean air clean water that many of the stepsisters ministration have take has taken our steps in the right direction and they are pleased with that and people are going to go to the polls they are going to vote for Donald Trump it looks like it is said to senator Marsha Blackburn a Republican from Tennessee and I I wanted to kind of learn the last question here Fauria switch topics kind of a hard pivot here one of your colleague senator Marco Rubio left a video message on his Twitter page last night let me just play a portion of this you can see what he's advocating here and I'll get your reaction things

Senators want TikTok investigated for "national security risks"
"Senators chuck e. humor and tom cotton have asked the acting director of national intelligence to inquire into any potential national security risk posed by tick tock well we have alfred here from seen it alot all right thanks for having me thanks here first things first how can the talking anna dancing lip synching app via national security risk in the first place this is where we've got to start going try we forget history a lot player you know people kind of over short term memory of what's online right like so yesterday mark zuckerberg was congress and they go down this whole laundry list of all the ways that facebook was a threat to US democracy with election interference that data breaches discrimination using that platform but there was a time where we looked at facebook the same way we look at tech talk now oh this is cool way to connect with my friends i can make funny videos on it i can make these silly looking photos there and it's weird at this new shiny app comes along all the genza teams are on it and it seems to be this innocent fun app and it's weird that was forget history so quickly and that's one of the main concerns that these two senators laid out here is that they have his algorithm that collects data on at least one hundred and ten million americans and and there's nothing there's nothing you know that we know about it we don't know what they're doing that data we don't know how that impo can be used against us we don't no if other nations are using this to perhaps spread disinformation come election day or you know ways to affect like US democracy so actually are like a few concerns around tick tock here yeah that makes sense and in fact i wasn't too terribly long ago i saw one of the i don't necessarily go to tick tock it's on its own a whole lot but i'll see them come through on twitter where people are sharing them and someone pointed out that a pretty popular category on talk is just funny videos that people within our military post on tick tock and with that came the concern that if there are folks who are working in undisclosed locations or who are you know in the midst of troop movements are posting these videos is to the social service and location is attached to that then there's very likely a concern that that data could be shared with bad actors and oh i think you know on on the face of it we do think of this like you said has just this this app and we're not considering the history but in fact there are turns that we are sharing more information that we intended to my question here is what makes this app different front some other social media apps i mean you you post to facebook post to twitter you post whatever and you may be sharing your location there you may be you know they are collecting information about you so what's the big deal with tik tok in particular i think a big difference would take talk is that they are a chinese owned companies facebook is owned by a US company twitter also US company google apple etc when you look at tech talk you know this is a chinese company based in china and so there bound to chinese rules where there are chinese laws where if you're a tech company you have to have somebody from the government on your board and you compelled to turn data over so even if i'm making these videos on military bases like uploading to youtube which google owns they're not gonna turn that data over to most governments unless there's a warrant behind it or something like that in china it's much different story so if i'm uploading video there bacon request that video and it's not like the folks behind textiles we're going to really tell the chinese government no right yeah so tick tock says that the data that they are uploading is stored here in the united states and so that's sort of tick talks immediate return to to the question but the lawmakers are saying yeah you might be storing it in the united states but that doesn't mean that the chinese government can't hold the company which is based in china too the rules that are in place in in china so what i find fascinating about this conversation that sort of split into two two areas one is the the problem with data but the other one also seems to be the problem it was mark zuckerberg who talked about this with with the great firewall in china that folks who are using apps that are from their chinese based apps in the united states are still affected by the chinese it's sort of great firewall as it were and i'm curious are the lawmakers that we know are are they considering that perspective as well or is this or focused on it has become a problem for the for american government until we think about the national security concerns while now they've definitely looked at it from the grapevine all perspective as well we talk and we see these funny videos right but we don't really see any content from the protests in hong kong we don't see anything from a sin jang where more than a million muslims are being held captive currently on and that's because they are chinese owned app and in the same way that the NBA blizzard has basically said yeah we're not going to touch any of that take talk is gonna do the same thing where they have been actively censoring any kind of content related to any kind of anti establishment perspective so censorship is definitely a big part of that as well absolutely now when this is not the first time even within the month that there has been some activity in washington around us there was a there was a moment earlier this month were senator marco rubio also you know had had a congressional request what what's the difference between the two the difference here is that this is a lot more bipartisan this from senator chuck schumer a democrat senator tom cotton republican in the past i i think giving follow politics it's pretty hard to get people to agree on this but i also think that this is after the issues that happen with blizzard that have happened with the NBA where this is a war at the forefront now and this is a much bigger concern now for US politicians well particularly because we've seen i think the tampering from from foreign actors in our election cycles one of the concerns that it seems folks are raising two is the spread of russian propaganda in the sense of the way that they've they've affected the election through facebook and other platforms i'm curious do you feel like tick tock is an app that's particularly prone to being able to do this and i'm asking this because the times that i have scrolled through the app the videos tend to be short bite sized little things and like you said it's mostly people dancing or doing some sort of lip sync and partnering with other people wear where are the where's the room for for these videos to spread and is it just sort of a an issue of me missing them or they actually are we seeing some of this the concerns that they have yeah so the disinformation campaign from the two thousand sixteen election was also primarily targeting teens you know i had looked at a lot of these pages that russian actors made and they were there was a good chunk of them that were like mean pages that were nima counts where it's like a right wing james or left wing means and things like that but there were a few that were like memes for teens where we if you look at who they targeted these adds to it was people between the ages of thirteen and eighteen in and that is exactly what talks a prime demographic is currently and you know on monday facebook had a press conference where they talk about a three information campaigns at the dismantled a one was from russia the other from iran and then one more from china now the chinese government is fully aware that tectonic has a graph on american teens and that's an audience that's right for disinformation you know they're the ones that are going to be voting in a few years and they're the ones is that are really easily influenced especially through something like an app i remember seeing a few months ago there were articles about how teams have been using talk to help protests for teachers teachers were going on strike because they weren't getting the resources that they needed and students were kind of rallying for them using tick tock now zi hao political adversaries might see that in think oh we can use that to spread this relation to get kids to start rallying against this thing that we want them to go behind that makes sense the one other question i had is do we know how sort of regional some of these filters might be or when i'm specifically speaking of the censorship perspective the reason i ask this is i think it was even just yesterday pretty peeler person on instagram she was on the netflix show queer eye and she had just joined tedtalk and was posting videos there and there are a lot of comments on this instagram post about well tick tock sensors LGBTQ content and it's been my experience that on the app that has not been the case but then it had me thinking you know while i'm in the united states i'm logging in from the united states i'm seeing this from the united states do we know if i mean like i said tick tock such new app that bit hasn't really gained the kind of scrutiny that we've given to facebook google and twitter when it comes to social media and i think this is a move in that direction where you know let's not let them pull the wool over our eyes again where we know this is a social network we know that have an algorithm to get designed to get you stay on it as long as possible we know that they profit off people's data why are we acting like this is a cool fun new toy again uh-huh where i think this letter is pushing them is is kinda speeding up to where we are now with facebook already and so i i think that more people might start taking a look at it soon but as of right now we don't really know how regionalize the content is
Senators want TikTok investigated for "national security risks"
"Litters Chuck Schumer and Tom Cotton sent a letter to the director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire requesting an investigation into possible national security threats Tom Tick Tock Yeah with the music in the memes and all of that Senator Marco Rubio wrote to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin earlier this month asking the Committee on foreign investment in United States to investigate tick Tock for national security threats and Censorship Tick Tock told the verge it does not have details on the request but tick tock is committed to being trusted responsible corporate citizen in the US which includes working with Congress and all relevant regulatory agencies. That's the thing they have to say they said the thing they had to say tick Tock guidelines told moderators to censor any content that refers to TNN men square Tibetan independence fallen gone This was discovered in September by the Guardian and bite dance which owns tick Tock said those are old guidelines we retired those a long time ago in May of this year we were totally retired those guidelines and now tick tock takes a localized approach they have different guidelines for each market based on what the norms are in that market now if you're wondering about Tick Tock being a Chinese company it's not quite that simple by dance launched a APP called Doe Yen D. O. U. Y. N. and China September two thousand sixteen hit one hundred million Chinese users within a year and it's still there under that name in September twenty seventeen hi Dan decided to go international and the international version of Doane was tick Tock that was not terribly popular until November nine 2017 went by chance bought musically musically was a Shanghai product that was also based in Santa Monica so it was a more worldwide product and in August of two thousand eighteen musically and tick tock merged and so all The musically people flooded into tick tock and instantly made it hugely popular in addition to the audience which had been building over that time as well now as mentioned do yen is a separate APP for China up until the merger of musically and Tick Tock Tick Tock was mostly Chinese operation by dance had some international popularity kind of in Southeast Asia and so I find it totally believable Justin that yeah that not waste the time on that and in May of this year started to realize crap since August we have blown up when we merged musically the musically folks have different moderation guidelines we need to clean up this documentation but of course the Guardian gets a hold of it and says hey look at all this stuff that would make perfect sense for du Yan because in China but it seems like it was applying to other people now you have to connect the dots there to say oh that was a cover up they wanted those moderations to apply

I most of the president's comments saying today quote when the only American citizen President trump singles out for China's investigation is his political opponent in the midst is to the Democratic nomination process. It's strange credulity suggest it is anything other than politically motivated. He goes on by all appearances. The president's brazen in an unprecedented appeal to China to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling but that was it really for Republicans with misgivings Senator Senator Marco Rubio for instance on the other hand says we're all over playing the president's comments.

I a key part of the state of the union and get your responses to the president talking about Venezuela. Cut number eighteen we stand with the Venezuelan people and their noble quest for freedom, and we condemn the brutality of the Madero regime whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America. Enjoy state of abject, poverty, and despair. Now, Senator Rubio, I agree with that. I'm glad he brought it up. And I was amazed. That speaker Pelosi did not rise for applaud freedom for the Venezuelan. People your reaction to the remarks into the response. Well, in fairness, she has spoken already made statements in the past and support of the administration's policy and everything that we've done there. So obviously, we're grateful for that. And I want to be fair. I don't know why she didn't stand and applied on that line. And obviously another mentioned of socialism makes a lot of my democratic colleagues nervous that avast majority of them are not socialist. But they know that there is a very strong and growing socialist energy and their party, and they're afraid to take it on. They're afraid of these new elements in their party that are growing in prominence and energy. This is very important. What you just brought up is this cut.

But I know what you're getting at Roger and all all that stuff. I can also tell you, and frankly, I mean this, you know, in truth, not in the spirit of nastiness. The media wasn't winning in this too. Because the media reported breathlessly on a lot of the revelations that were leaked that we know we're now the product of the work of Russian intelligence, and all of us need to be wiser when we see this thing or something hits your inbox or another reporter's inbox from third party source that we don't know who it is. We have to be careful that we are not doing the work of the Russians or some other intelligence. Agency, that's trying to undermine us. We all need to be wiser about this movement. Should it be a crime working with WikiLeaks? Well, took a question. I think certainly if your wittingly doing it. I it should be considered a such. I mean, you're participating in the work of a foreign intelligence agency. But one of the keys that they do is unwittingly. It's not like they have a sign at the front door. That says, you know, we're we are an instrument of Russian intelligence that we're being used by Russian intelligence for this purpose. But that's why I've supported the special prosecutor and the work they're doing I think it's important for them to finish. We'll have all the facts before us, and then we can render judgment. I think it's a real big mistake. Trust me to jump to any conclusions until Mr. molars workers done.

"Might have something like what happened in Vegas, or we might have something like what happened at the pulse nightclub in Orlando or Stillman, Douglas and Broward County, Florida, those types of things often color our imagination, and that is where we still have mainstream. News media influence that is Corrina picture that is also pulse. And part of the reason that I'm bringing this up. There was a piece of legislation proposed yesterday that not many people. No about or paid attention to its gun control. And it came from none other than Senator Marco Rubio, and what's all this about? So every time we have a new congress all the pending legislation from previous congress that is dead. That Bill on Capitol Hill from schoolhouse rock. He was part of the top two percent. Only two percent. A proposed legislation ever passes into becoming law, and literally and that was a more than ten thousand bills die when with each new cars that comes into session in the wake of the shooting and Stephen Douglas in Florida last year Marco Rubio proposed some reforms that became part of comprehensive gun control here in Florida. And it went nowhere. The very first thing he decided to do in the new congress was propose it yet. Again. Now, here's something to watch. Whatever you happen to think of it. Yeah. Your name we tend to also through perception and reality. I think that everything is necessarily partisan, for example, any type of gun control or reform is necessarily something that Republicans don't want, and and necessarily something that Democrats do want and in the like, but somewhere along the line there can be a level of pragmatism that enters the equation. And this is where Ford is a little bit anomalous this way. Did pass comprehensive gun control reform last year and happened to be reformed that as a proud supporter of the second amendment and a gun owner, I generally supported and it happened to pass with a completely Republican controlled state government here in Florida happened to be signed into law by our Republican governor Rick Scott who happens to be the incoming junior Senator from Florida. So as Marco Rubio proposed this as you have Rick Scott that is going to be another Senator from Florida who actually helped install it and make it happen. One of the things you're likely to see playing out is some type of reform here. Now, you might be aware the President Trump ended up using his pen to sign out through that kid of action bomb socks. He is also that.
