"Producer. The top stories we're following for you today all of Congress will be back this week with a house joining the Senate after a summer break, and there's no shortage of issues to tackle before the end of the month. Mitchell Miller is on Capitol Hill. The Senate is already in the midst of debate over how a short term spending bill is going to come together to avoid a government shutdown by October 1st, and even before their return into session, dozens of House Democrats have indicated they don't like a side deal with West Virginia senator Joe Manchin that could fast track energy projects. Lawmakers are also awaiting a briefing on potential damage linked to the classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago due to legal developments. Virginia senator Mark Warner chair of the intelligence committee hopes the Intel community can provide some information soon. I'm hoping and I'm going to urge the IC. Give us at least an interim report. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO. Virginia senator Mark Warner, who chairs the Senate intelligence committee says, his committee has work to do because former president Trump took top secret documents with him when he left The White House. What are responsibility is, is to assess whether there's been damage done to our intelligence collection and maintenance of secrets. That is on a damage assessment that frankly, even the judge in Florida has said, can continue. That federal judge in Florida has ordered the appointment of a special master to examine the documents to determine whether any are covered by executive privilege or attorney client privilege. With the November midterms less than two months away, concerns are mounting over election security. So what can we expect and our officials ready for any drama that could unfold? We do expect some contested outcomes. Meredith Wilson, CEO of emergent risk international says it's expected in some states, particularly those battleground states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia. She doesn't anticipate a repeat of 2020, it could be similar though, but more along the lines of post voting intimidation around some of polling centers vote counting things like that because there's certainly some remaining frustration over the 2020 outcome.

"Back to work. You want to allow folks to build up those skills as balance sheets, givings, feeling like the economy is moving so that we can weather these storms. Or anything that kind of comes along the horizon in the months and weeks and weeks and months to come. It is clear that the labor market at this point is not in a recession. It continues to be clear, of course, that high prices are a challenge for families, and that is why the president has focused so much of his energy on making that a priority. How do we bring costs down for families? How do we make sure that what families are experiencing in the economy is sustainable for them in terms of their budgets? That's of course why the inflation reduction act is so important to American families and is a part of how we keep the economy moving forward on that stable path. We keep those costs down and we keep creating jobs. So let me go to that inflation reduction act. We talked to senator Mark Warner of Virginia about that and the negotiations that went into it. It sounds like The White House is definitely in favor of this package as it's been negotiated. At the same time, the reduction in the inflation looks like it's going to be more in the out years. Are you expecting a short term relief to inflation from the passage of this act if in fact it's enacted? Well, this act is a number of things that directly affects family budgets. So one of the things that will expire if this act does not continue them, is the subsidies that families have to be able to afford health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. So there are some additional subsidies that were put in place and we need to extend those. That is economic relief for families. And so that is a near term issue. Giving the government the ability and the capacity to negotiate over drug prices, this is going to bring costs down for families. It's going to be significant help. And we all know how families have been struggling with high energy prices, particularly high gas prices. Although I will note over the past over a month and a half now, we have seen those prices come down and the president has been using all the tools that he has there to affect how much

Over the long haul supporters of the legislation say this will help consumers get the products they want and that the prices won't be as high since the U.S. will be making a substantial number of chips much greater than it is now. It's also expected to create tens of thousands of jobs as U.S. facilities in Virginia and elsewhere expand and do more to catch up with many other countries, including China and supporters also say it's important from a national security standpoint.

The house oversight committee has been hearing from executives with major gun manufacturers and the committee chair Carolyn maloney pressed Marty Daniel. He's the CEO of Daniel defense, which made the gun used by the gunman and Yuval Texas to kill children and teachers. How many more American children need to die before your company will stop selling assault weapons to civilians and children going from a belief that these murders are local problems. That was kind of the tenor of this hearing, the gun executives say that companies and law abiding citizens should not be penalized for the crimes of a few, but Democrats on the committee say that these companies are making a lot of money selling AR-15 style weapons. House Democrats have been talking a lot about resurrecting the assault weapons ban. Where is that? Right now it is stopped, steny Hoyer, the House majority leader, said it will not be brought up this week. They are still trying to wrangle some issues related to funding for police as well as the assault weapons ban, Democrats right now don't think they have enough votes

"What we're hearing is far as a relief bill goes, is that there's optimism amongst senators. You saw some of them out yesterday, Democratic Senator Mark Warner of Virginia was out talking about how it appeared is, though, um lawmakers will be able to put forward a proposal is earliest today for another coronavirus stimulus package, saying the details about the piece of legislation could be worked out as early as this morning so that they would have everything finalized. Ready to go. What the legislation out there and begin the process of seeing if they get support for it from other senators, which we're hearing in some cases like Bernie Sanders, he is not in support of this $908 billion packages out there, mainly because There's no inclusion of any sort of stimulus check going out there. Yes, there's unemployment insurance will pay $300 a week for a period of four months. Yes, there are elements to the P p p portion of things, but There is no individual stimulus check in there, and that's a little tough when you're trying to call this the stimulus package that would make this just a relief package for the most part, so the discussion seemingly ongoing here, but they think they've got the top line numbers. Now they're getting the language finalized, and they should have. This thing is early as today on some level and again. This is a short of a four month emergency relief package.

"On. Roy joins us with the latest. And maybe her rendition of a christmas carol. I don't know you know it's up to you. I do love the christmas season. Joe and what democrats are doing right now is trying to make the christmas season a little bit more mary. For unemployed workers there is interest on both sides of the aisle in breaking this logjam on capitol hill surrounding neta virus. Relief package and today more than thirty democrats are getting behind a new push to extend expiring unemployment benefits for twelve million workers before they go away at the end of the year. Virginia senator mark warner is leading this effort with a letter to the leadership of both parties. That says letting these payments lapsed during the holiday season would be cruel and that it would hit the services sector and the art especially hard. The letter says these workers are all facing job loss. It has nothing to do with their skills abilities or performance now there have been some preliminary conversations in the senate on bipartisan measures. That might be able to pass alongside the government funding bill next week and so this letter is just one indication. Democrats appear to be coalescing around the problem of what they're calling the benefits cliff also today senators ron wyden and sherrod brown the top democrats on the finance and banking committees as well as colorado senator michael bennet. They're unveiling bill that would extend these expiring provisions and it would also reinstate that six hundred dollars in enhanced unemployment benefits that has been more controversial and has been one of the sticking points in these broader negotiations surprise. This could be a sign that democrats might be willing to accept something smaller than that to you. Trillion dollar deal

Q&A with Senate hopeful Daniel Gade

"Weeks away. But nearly 38 million voters have already cast their ballots. That includes roughly 1.5 million voters in Virginia, where incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Warner is facing off against Republican challenger Daniel Gate. In a state that's become increasingly blew some of called Gates Campaign a longshot recent polling shows Warner up by almost 16 point. We've had Senator Warner on the show twice this year, but we haven't heard from his opponent yet. And that changes today. Daniel Gate. Welcome to one, eh? It's a pleasure to be on Earth. You thank you so much. And we should note that Daniel was also a professor at American University, which holds the license for our parent station. W AM. You So you're a military veteran and a disability rights activists running for office for the first time. What made you decide to run? Well, you're right. I'm a military veteran. I spent 25 years in the U. S Army and was wounded in combat twice decorated for valor, gave a leg in combat my hip level amputee and then later went on to get a PhD and a master's degree in public policy working in both the Bush and the Trump administration, so I'm a public policy expert, and I consider this race an extension of my military service, in the sense that I've been under oath to the Constitution my whole life, and this is just more service as someone with a little experience in politics. You've been running in part on the idea that you're Ah Washington. Outsider. Why do you see that as an advantage? Well, it's an advantage because you know, I think Virginians are sick of and nationally you see people sick of career politicians who have done little to solve our problems. I'll give you a couple of examples. When Mark Warner took office in 2008, he pledged 2009. He was elected Noh eight, but he pledged to be a budget hawk and back Then the deficit was $12 trillion, and now it's something like $27 Trillion or the debt rather And on issue after issue. There's a history of broken promises here, and even the Washington Post's no friend of Republicans said that he had quote muddled through his time in the Senate with few signature accomplishments. That's from spring of 2019 so This is who the career politicians are, and people are sick of it. They want career servants, and I'm a career servant of the Constitution. And that's the fundamental difference between us. But Republicans have held a majority in the Senate for some time. So how much of that? Can you lay? At Senator Warren Warner's feet. Will remember at the beginning of his time in the Senate. Back in 09, 10 and 11. The Democrats had a super majority in the Senate, not just a majority, but a super majority and and the White House and for the bulk of his time in the Senate, the White House and the Senate have been Held by Democrats, So it's not. It's true that there has been some fiscal indiscipline by Republicans as well. And I'm not in favor of that, either. What? Explain a little bit one example. What approach which you take to fiscal responsibility if elected. Oh, sure, one thing we need and I know a lot of people talk about this, and then they get to Washington. See and forget about it. D C has proven that we need about balanced Budget amendment and it can have an escape hatch for emergencies with, you know, some kind of three quarters majority in both houses to override for a period of time and You can write it so that it's not a suicide pact. But we absolutely must have that. And that means we need to weigh need to take seriously our obligation to our future generations. And that's something that I care deeply about. Do you think there's a political will for that kind of move? No, there's not on Capitol Hill. Of course, there's not, And the reason there's not is because they all are feeding at the same trough, Republicans and Democrats alike. But there's absolutely political will for it on Main Street, and it's a very populist thing, people. That's what people want. People want Washington to spend within its means, just like every state has to and just like every family has to. So if this is not rocket science, so if you're critiquing both Democrats and Republicans for this issue, how would you shift that dynamic if you're elected? Well, The first thing is that we need to elect Republicans who have a spine and we need Teo and we need to work. Of course we need to work cross, but we also need to tie into our core principles and his Republicans. Far too often, We've abandoned our core principles in favor of short term gain. And so that's you know, that's a broad based critique of my party and of end of, frankly, the other party as well. There hasn't been a Republican elected to statewide office in Virginia for more than 10 years, and some of called your Senate run a serious long shot. What makes you think Virginia could shift red again? Well, a couple of things one is you know, in the last quarter, I actually outraised Mark Warner, which was fantastic. And and what we're seeing at the doors on our phone calls and in our polling is that when independence here about me And my bio just my history of service to the country and my qualifications for the office. The fact that I have a PhD in policy they're coming over 2 to 12 to one and part of that is Mark Warner's failures on you Know, he voted against Cove it really for Virginia families. He voted he put in a budget that defunded the police by $50 million in 2002 as governor. And when people discovered that kind of thing, they're like, Wait a second, he says. He's moderate. But in actuality he's not. And so that kind of betrayal is really digging in and people are sick and tired of it. Well as we speak. There's a debate in Congress

Another 4.4 Million; Reopening Georgia; Oil, Oil Everywhere

"Look at. What's been happening another week? In the pandemic another round of unemployment data this week's Labor Department report of initial jobless claims revealed an additional four point four million Americans have newly filed for unemployment benefits. That brings the five week total to well over. Twenty six million people completely erasing job gains for the last decade since the recession four point four million is actually lower than the number from last week which could be a sign that the corona virus impact on the real economy may have hit its peak but the curve differs state by state in New York for example claims. This week were about half of what they were week before in Florida. Though new findings were nearly double while the number of American signing up for unemployment benefits grows states. Like Florida are setting near-term timelines to reopen their economies earlier. This week Georgia governor. Brian Kemp announced his plan to partially reopened his State's economy as soon as tomorrow governors of Ohio Tennessee and Florida as I mentioned have also tested the waters with opening plans. The announcement prompted a backlash from some public health officials. Lawmakers and the President Hears Becky quick the Virginia senator. Mark Warner is here and obviously he's been watching all of this play out. Senator Warner thanks for joining us today. If people are home aren't getting paid can open their businesses. They're getting more and more frustrated with this. How do we handle this? How do we kind of figure out where it's okay to open up again where it's not all? I think two things one clearly people are frustrated. My concern is you reopening should be a priority but it's got to be data driven. I think the president's own recommendations have been you need to see fourteen days of declining cases and my concern is if we send back people and only half the workforce goes back because people were concerned or God forbid they go back and you get another spike in the virus and then you may lose. The confidence of your folks entirely I know is a former governor. I would be having this data driven as possible. The president did ask me to serve on his on his taskforce. And I'm my contribution I hope will be. We need more testing testing testing testing. And the fact that we don't even have a common information data site out there that can say what are all the tests that have been approved. What's in the pipeline? What does the FDA about to approve that might give us all a little more guidance? On what the schedule might look like because if we can do the testing in an efficient way do the contact tracing then. I think we can move. As we've seen the cases come down into a reopening face and just wonder how long before we get some of those things testing ability and and the data ability based on everything you know well the FDA has been in the process of approving both additional swab type tests and the antibody tests. I think they're both proceeding on a parallel track in the bill. That's passed to. Hopefully we'll be past today. There's twenty five billion dollars for testing. That's a remarkable investment and clearly testing has to be coordinated on a national level. The one thing I hope the president would not try to impose similar to I think the mistaken he's approached. Ppi which is every state for themselves simply driving up the cost of this equipment. The testing level has to be coordinated at the national level. The fact that there's already a national information site out there. I've actually started to work with Johns Hopkins University who created the definitive site on tracking the virus. There now trying to create. And I think we'll be going live shortly with the the definitive site on testing. We have that information that will be a great guide to governors and others on reopening senator. Sorry about that having technical issues here today. Let me just ask you though. I were doing the state by state because it's hard to come up with the federal plan when there's so many differences between the states but even within the states there are huge differences. cases obviously are much higher in the cities and congested areas and in states where you have lots rural areas Right outside some of those cities. That may be a big part of the problem. Too Do you. Do you think this needs to go almost by a on a county by county basis or is that problematic? I think we need to look at it. Both state and region-wide. You know my state Virginia very very large state you know. I live up in the greater Washington area. You know you can't just open northern Virginia without dealing with DC and Maryland on the other hand. We've got parts of our state. Southern Virginia South side South West Virginia. Eight or nine hours away. They might have a different reopening schedule. But even some of those rural communities we've seen counties with a dramatic spike so I do think you need flexibility. Here there will be some regional reopenings. But you gotTa have that testing equipment and one of the other things. I hope we can get to. We're also going to try to do in terms of restarting the economy in terms of federal support. Because I've got some different ideas there as well and I want you to explain that to us ways of trying to reach out and help small businesses as well as what we've already seen what we've what we've got right now is we've we've got kind of a barbell approach where we've done a very generous program for the airlines and parts of air cargo and even with the challenges with small businesses five hundred and under we've got the eight weeks of of payroll and a little bit of overhead. We've done frankly nothing for the middle market the so-called mainstream facility. I don't think the take-up rates going to be very great. There's no loan forgiveness. We've got this cliff affect if you're under five hundred you get everything taken care of if you've got seven hundred employees you've got nothing so looking at how our reaction has been with the numbers which. I'm sure we'll see a little bit later this morning. Four or five additional million additional unemployed. Maybe we ought to take a step back since this is probably not going to be v-shaped recovery and look at actually what Europe has done and actually put together a paycheck support program paycheck security program. I've laid out some ideas there and we've got support on this idea ranging from Bernie Sanders on the left to Josh. Holly a very conservative senator from Missouri. On the right and a whole series of kind of opinion pages from left to right the Europeans have only seen a two to four percent increase in unemployment. Because they've had this direct payroll support Our plan would get rid of some of the problems around the P P P program. You'd have to actually show a twenty percent revenue decline. So you wouldn't have some of the abuses taking place we would use the payroll processors to provide direct payroll support for folks up and down the food chain and might be a chance as we look at this covert four package. Then we'll come up in a couple of weeks to step back and say if this is going to continue this level of support for the next few months we may learn from what's happening What better approaches from abroad candidly right now with six trillion dollars that we've already put out before the five hundred billion today when you add into thirteen three fed lending facility. You know there may be a smarter. Way To distribute those resources senator some interesting ideas and ways of refining this We hope you'll come back as we move closer towards Kind of addressing the nest factions package.

"So what are tech companies doing with your data. Google is handling the medical records of millions of Americans as part of a big push into the healthcare industry. A project between the tech giant. One of the country's largest hospital change chains is under scrutiny by federal regulators and lawmakers. Who are asking if Google can really be trusted? This is just the latest example of big tech companies making forays into health care and also raising questions about patient privacy and just know here. Google is among NPR's financial supporters. Porter's I want to bring in. NPR Tech correspondent Shannon Bond. Good Morning Shannon Morning David. Okay so Google has a project called project nightingale would is it. This is a deal deal. Goule has struck with ascension which is a big Catholic healthcare system that operates hospitals and doctors offices across twenty states and DC. I it was first reported by the Wall Street Street Journal. This week in Google has since confirmed it it says it has a contract to manage ascensions clinical data. So that's test results hospitalization records your treatment records your whole Oh health history. Sure the companies say they want to improve patient care and they're working on artificial intelligence tools to help get there and is anyone who's dealt with a doctor's office or a hospital. It'll knows a lot of these systems are really fragmented so one doctor might not have any idea what you know. Other parts of the system are doing all. These healthcare providers are looking into move electronic medical records into the cloud and for tech companies. They there's this massive business opportunity to do that. Not just for Google but the other tech giants to like apple and Amazon and Microsoft so all of this could be good for patients. I mean if it organizes your medical records if it can make recommendations for treatment and so forth so so take me to the other side of this which is the the worry. Yeah I think it really comes down to privacy Google already know so much about all of us now. We're talking about medical article history health information. This is sensitive stuff in so critics are asking. What else might Google do? With this data. It comes on the heels of Google's recent announcement that it's buying fitbit which makes fitness trackers and spending two billion dollars on that deal. You know so these are the questions that are being raised. Spoke with Tiffany Lee. A visiting technology law professor professor at Boston University. And she says these aggressive moves into healthcare by Google are going to increase. The scrutiny of the company is already under so any sort of acquisition or any any sort of partnership that gives them more. Data will only give Google more power and more ability to be influential in the healthcare sector essentially a Google Elsa ghouls not allowed to use this data for its own advertising or research data's encrypted it's on Google server but in space exclusively for ascension but Google well does say that some Google employees working on the project have access to the data and there are strict federal laws about who gets to handle patients health information and Google states abiding adding by those laws. And so all of that. You just said Is that satisfying lawmakers and regulators. Are they going to keep asking a lot of questions here. Well this this week the US Department of Health and Human Services says it wants more information about how the companies are collecting these medical records to make sure they are following the law. And Senator Senator Mark Warner of Virginia said. Google essentially should stop this project while it's being reviewed he told CNBC he's concerned about whether patients have been notified properly about this. You know about their data going into Google systems. Some critics are also saying the Google just doesn't have a great track record on privacy especially when it comes to health data there the companies. What he's being sued over how it handled health data for a research project with the University of Chicago? The company and the University Hospital were accused of leaving identifiable information and the data. Now Google's denied those accusations and you know when I talked to people at the company they say look. There's a lot of competition there's as race among tech companies to get into healthcare and they don't want to let anything slow them down here

Asia stocks calm as China slows

"What's happening in financial markets as the Asian trading day gets rolling. Let's get it over to Bloomberg's Doug krizner. You were talking earlier about one of the components. I guess a foundational component for this optimism being optimism on U S China trade, given the fact that is Bloomberg news reported last week. The Chinese were making some kind of offer on a path to eliminate the trade deficit with the US. But now we're hearing that the US and China have made very little in the way of progress when it comes to the issue of IT, we are told Chinese officials have denied IP theft, and they have asked the US for proof. So in turn the US T R, the office of the trade Representative of told US lawmakers of the lack of progress on the issue of IP. This may have been one of the factors helping to take equities from session. Highs here in the early asiapac session. We also have negative South Korea neck port export data for the first twenty days of the month of decline of nine and a half. Half percent. If you look at semiconductors by themselves. Semiconductor exports in the first twenty days were down twenty eight point eight percent. The Korean one right now against the dollar weaker by four tenths of one percent. Let's look at the equity picture very quickly in Seoul, the kospi down two tenths of one percent, Sydney. Asx two hundred is better by two tenths of one percent. In tokyo. The Nikkei still holding onto a gain of about four tenths of one percent. We had been higher by about one percent earlier. But the yen has strengthened now against the dollar to one oh nine fifty five in that has helped to take some of the wind out of the sales of the Nikkei in Hong Kong hang sang up three tenths of one percents. Shanghai composite. Meantime, better by about three tenths of one percent. Now, we have a holiday in the states markets will be closed in observance of the Martin Luther King junior day. So as a result, no trading in US treasuries in the Tokyo session. The ten year was last quoted at a yield of two point seven eight percent. I'm Doug krizner at Bloomberg. Interactive brokers studio in. New York, Paul. All right. Thanks very much. Doug. Well, the second Trump Kim summit is expected to be held in Vietnam. Baxter's. Global news in the Bloomberg nine sixty San Francisco newsroom. Ed, exactly right, Paul. That's the word today from the Trump administration. Anyway, vice President Mike Pence on FOX saying the US goal to begin to make real the denuclearization. That can Jong on committed to the first word is location Hanoi. But that hasn't been firmed up. We're told denying hokey men city also appear to be in the running. He you nations are split and disagreeing over how long they think the UK could delay Brexit how some of them pushing for up to a year. Others want pressure applied to accept a deal as soon as possible it's up to the UK to ask for a delay. Something Prime Minister, Theresa may has adamantly said she will not do you k- trade secretary Liam Fox in the BBC says the message to the EU is that there is a real possibility of Brexit without a deal there watching my message stem is I hope you've understood from this program that new deal is a real possibility at least put the African. And may is preparing to set out where Brexit goes next in parliament tomorrow MP's are already preparing to take control of the process. She's had a call with her cabinet today. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's heads for talks in Moscow this week. The hope is resolution of the seventy year old dispute over Pacific islands, but Russian rhetoric has turned strident as foreign minister Sergey Lavrov says Russia will not surrender any territory and is publicly offering a pointed reminder of Japan's World War to defeat. Japan's hope would be that this is just pre negotiation rhetoric. US house leadership is how the Trump announcement over the weekend of a compromise which would give some dreamers, DACA. Three years to stay in the US. They say, it's an odd started. But Republican James Langford says it is a very good approaching the presents put a reasonable compromise on the table. Everyone knew we're going to go through this process. We're gonna end up compromising on multiple different areas to be able to resolve it. But the core elements are there that we all strongly believe about. But democratic Senator Mark Warner says this announcement by the president could be a starting point. But the government has to be opened. I what we cannot do. And I've actually had Republicans as well recognizes is that we cannot reward the kind of behavior of hostage-taking because if the president can arbitrarily shut down now he will do it time and again warned her on NBC and the House Democratic whip James Clyburn on FOX says he has a path forward temporary protective status for all people sick in the come to this country and the Trump Tower Russia talks didn't end until November election year.

He gave a full and complete answer to it. I can't share the whole thing with you. But I can't share the conclusion, which is he had conversations with Michael Cohen.
