businessweek with Carol massar and Bloomberg quick takes Tim steno on Bloomberg radio Hi everyone welcome to the weekend edition of Bloomberg business week Among the big headlines from this past week Tesla's Elon Musk taking a stake in Twitter Figure that one out Tim Yeah that was pretty surprising on Monday morning and then we've got the perfect person to break down what that means to the world's richest man and of course the social media platform as well Our conversation with Kathy wood is coming up Also ahead the president of Mattel and the retail industry's new normal we're still trying to figure out normal I got to say that And also oakview group CEO Tim leiweke he breaks down the company's big bet on Vegas We're talking $3 billion There's some serious money there Plus our editors roundtable profiles a GOP Senate hopeful who's going full maga in a hotly contested and highly priced Pennsylvania primary running against Doctor Oz That's our domestic cover story Stir I couldn't put it down All of that to come we begin with the war in Ukraine Now more than 6 weeks old Russia is facing new international sanctions on the heels of apparent war crimes in town surrounding Kyiv that were among the first targets of the invading Russian forces In the meantime companies with workers on the ground there are taking steps to hell Andy kurtzig is founder and CEO of just answer It's a site that connects people with doctors lawyers vets mechanics and other experts 24/7 And he's had more than 200 employees caught inside the war zone They're all live and doing as well as they could possibly be doing in this situation that we're in So all of our preparations have paid off We've been hosting to keep them all safe and so far it's working And in your notes you said that 6 of them are currently fighting and those who are fighting are still being paid a salary Yes So what we promised to them even before the war started when we thought that this might happen was we'd pay them 50% of their salary in addition to the seller and they get for being in the military And then we guarantee their jobs when they come back victorious Hey Andy we can take a step back And we are grateful that you've given us some time What are you it's hard for any of us I think in terms of some of the atrocities that we're seeing in some of the news coverage of what's going on in Ukraine right now what are you hearing from your team members who are on the ground in Ukraine I'm hearing pretty much what you're seeing in the news which is it's dreadful It's terrible I mean the seeing the bodies and the torture and the reality now that they've taken back some of their territories near key is just awful And they're horrified For those of the rest of the world For those that have stayed on the ground and decided not to leave Ukraine why is that Well so a few reasons I mean so we have the 258 now employees that we have in Ukraine 39 of them have we've been able to get them out But the rest either they can't get out because of their men between 18 and 60 It's against the law for them to leave the country Okay And then we've got people that maybe their spouse or their family members are stuck there and so they don't want to leave either So some of the women are staying by the side of the men that are forced to stay in Ukraine And then we've even got like the woman that leaves their office in Ukraine Her son just turned 18 So he can't leave until she's not leaving her son behind Wow What's the message that you want to send to other people in Silicon Valley other Americans who are here in the United States and really just watching this play out I mean I think a lot of people have this feeling that well okay the government's doing what it can do There's only so much I can do You know first thing is that this affects all of us This is not some small skirmish in Eastern Europe This is about democracy and about freedom and east versus west This is everything really worried about during the Cold War It's actually happening now And this affects all of us And so we all need to.

susannah Palmer This is Bloomberg Your listening to balance and power with David Westin on Bloomberg radio Still to come this hour bracing for the next wave of COVID I talk with doctor Anthony Fauci about getting a fourth shot and the critical funding needed for COVID-19 treatments vaccines and testing But first this week former president Barack Obama returned to The White House for the first time on the 12th anniversary of his landmark healthcare bill or ObamaCare as it became known appearing with the man who was his vice president and is now the president It is good to be back in The White House It's been a while I confess I heard some changes have been made President Biden used the occasion to announce new regulations to expand and improve ObamaCare With this change it's estimated that 200,000 presently uninsured Americans are going to gain coverage Nearly 1 million Americans will see their coverage become more affordable To take us through the changes at what war should be done I talked to doctor Catherine baker dean of the University of Chicago's Harris school of public policy There were a number of glitches or unintended consequences of the original ObamaCare or Affordable Care Act formulation that this is an opportunity to potentially fix one of The example here is called the family glitch where people with low incomes are eligible for subsidies to get care on marketplaces or health insurance exchanges if the care that if the insurance they're offered from their employer is unaffordable But the way unaffordable is defined is based on the cost of an individual plan even though the whole family might need coverage and a family plan might be unaffordable So there's just a mismatch in the way coverage is defined and the way affordability is defined that there's an administrative fix for that the current policy is aiming to address This would make more families eligible for subsidies which would make insurance more affordable for them Was this just a mistake in the original regulations about how to get drafted this way Of course I was not part of the drafting and I can only guess but my guess is that it was just a mistake I think that they're in legislation as complicated as this There are lots of pieces that all have to work in concert And if things are defined differently in different parts of a complicated statute it can create gaps or glitches that I do not think worthy intention If you look back at Medicare from the 1960s there have been so many fixes of that program because it has just been an incredibly complicated thing to administer Yeah and if anybody doubts what you just said they should take a look at the code of federal regulation It does understand how complicated and how lengthy these things are Are there other I'll put it in quotation marks mistakes like this that need correcting Well another example of something that I don't think was intended but isn't this kind of glitch is that when the law was originally drafted the assumption would be that all states would be expanding their medicate programs But then of course that was challenged in the Supreme Court said that it was optional for states to expand but that they didn't have to expand Well a lot of the coverage for health insurance exchanges started for families with incomes above the Medicaid cut off because the assumption was that all families below that cutoff would be in states that had expanded Medicaid Well in the states that didn't expand Medicaid they were then some families who didn't have Medicaid but whose income was too low to get subsidies in the health insurance exchanges So there have been a number of administrative attempts to sort of fill some of these gaps Really I think in an ideal world there would be an opportunity to also implement some statutory fixes for things that were just not the original intention And I don't think our serving anyone's interests What movement if any has there been in the states parts the states that have opted out or not opted in to go back and opt in because at the time as I recall there were some states particularly with some governors who didn't think much of the portal care act that said almost as a matter of principle we're not going to participate At this point it seems like Affordable Care Act is here to stay Our states now changing their minds on this Slowly and slowly additional states have been opting in And it's important to realize that for the populations covered by ObamaCare or the ACA the states have to contribute very little for that coverage Most of those are federal dollars So the cost to the state of opting in.

Many thanks. Indeed. James. It's 10 minutes to the hour. We're going to actually go and talk now about we're hearing earlier about South African infections. This new variant of the covert virus. We're hearing memories of New York under Wave one. I think we should catch up with the situation in L. A. Now Los Angeles, which seems to be theme center of the pandemic in the U. S. Anthony Fauci, the top government scientists in the U. S. Has been warning that the worst of the pandemic may yet be to come. Newspapers in California are calling it Viral wildfire is that exaggeration? Been speaking to Dr Robert Kim Farley, who is professor of epidemiology U C L, A. The fielding School of Public Health in Los Angeles. I really think this is now a viral tsunami. If that kind of gives you a visual understanding the magnitude that I see the situation being if you think matches being thrown into a Forest, No occasions little bit of flare up like covert disease. But now we really are facing a viral, a raging wildfire here in California and Ellie, and when we think of the kind of the first spike or the first wave to use that analogy, we think of New York and the hospital's under enormous pressure. Is that what we should be comparing it to now? Yes, Really. L A is having its New York moment at the moment. And so we are seeing that high steep rise that has compromised our hospital systems. We really have no ICU beds. Capacity. So what's happening is that you elective surgeries are being stopped. People maybe are being discharged from the nice you earlier than they might normally have been patients or laying down in emergency departments waiting for ICU beds. Ambulances that are sometimes having to wait hours to offload. So the ICUs are in effect, Fool. You seem to be saying Yes, exactly right and unfortunate, Because usually you talk about mutual aid. You know, if your hospital doesn't have a bed, you send them to somewhere else. But in this situation where everyone around us in Los Angeles and surrounding counties are experiencing the same levels, there is no excess capacity. Is that no advantage, Robert in what we've learned or what you guys have learned since the first way that you know the fact that people don't have to be intubated and put on machines to the same degree is before we've learned other work arounds and so on. It seems that what you're describing is your suffering a crisis of that degree, even bearing in mind the fact that now you can beam or efficient in your treatment or Laura's, You're correct in the sense that we do have better treatments. Knowing prone ng, for example, for other necessary having too good intubation and ventilators at the beginning you having Regeneron and Dixon at the zone and some other treatments on hand. But the problem is is sheer magnitude of numbers that you know the numbers of cases are leading them to higher numbers of hospital on what he's driving. That simply, I mean, would die. Predictions weren't there when people were allowed to mix around Thanksgiving? It is that a simple line between cause and effect. Well, I think what happens is is that we have what I call amplifying events. You know, from these holidays back to back from Halloween going into Thanksgiving, going to the Hanukkah and Christmas and now soon to be going into New Year's Eve. So what happens is that Previously maybe only you know, less than one in 1000. People had Cove it well, now, more than one in 100, so that means that the chances whether you're in a store or whether you're visiting a friend, All of these things are so much higher to transmit the disease. Can people actually go out on celebrate inverted commas New Year's Eve as that not being locked down and put off limits. Really? The thing is, it is a situation, I think. Just say no. When someone asked you to a party just say no. If someone asked you to come over to their house for dinner, Just say no. So that hospitals when you need ICU bed aren't telling. You know, that's Professor Robert Kim. Folly of U. C L. A is fielding School of public health. Used a BBC World Service Lana's Pollack, Claire MacDonald, Thanks for joining us this morning. We're going to end on an annual tradition, but it might not know this might be the most 15 year. For it. It's a good riddance Day today, where New Yorkers right down their least favorite memories of the year on a piece of paper and see them shredded into confetti. In Times Square, and this year the event is taking place largely digitally. Of course, you could still get involved. I'll tell you how shortly a little earlier, I spoke to Tim Tomkins, president of the Times Square Alliance, which is behind the event. And he told me how will work well as with everything else. It's a little different in that there's not gonna be much human contact. Usually we have lines of people around the block who bring things ranging from their old doctor's bills because we don't have a national cell service here to pictures of their ex boyfriends and girlfriends. To, you know to more serious things like cancer diagnosis, whatever it is, And they just want to say good riddance and goodbye to the things from last year, it actually grows out of something. We heard about a Latin American tradition where people would write down. Kind of evil things for the last year, put them into a doll and then, like $2 on fire, So I think in different places around the world, there's different ways in which people want to say good riddance to the bad things in the dark things from the last year and certainly 2020. There is no shortage. So this year people can do hashtag Good riddance Day. Or they can go online that times Square on by sea, and they could write whatever it is that they want to say good riddance to and we will print that out and put it into a shredder to be pulverized. And so come people witness the pulverize ation online. Yes, they can. Facebook page of Times Square and messy and that will be you feeding them in, Will it.

"My guest. If you're just joining us for just another few minutes is Diane Morale is who is now running for mayor in New York City. She is a former CEO of Several nonprofit social service organizations, non profits with budgets in the millions, and now she's running for mayor. And before you go, let me touch on at least one of the issues in the mayoral election itself now, and that is how the election itself will be run New Yorkers and listeners. For those of you who don't know this yet. Passed a referendum to begin ranked choice voting, which means as some of our listeners may not know that, instead of just voting for one candidate for mayor, people will rank their choices. And if nobody gets a majority, then there's a formula for eliminating the bottom candidate and distributing that person's votes to each voter's second choice. And then the next bottom candidate is eliminated and their voters next choice gets their vote. And so on until someone has 50% plus one, But some members of City Council wanted DeLay ranked choice Voting. On the argument that the public isn't being educated on it quickly enough, and that's going to disadvantage Voters of color, they say. So what's your position on ranked choice voting and whether it should be delayed? Uh, Brian. My position on that is that it was overwhelmingly voted on. But New York residents in 2019 and that the focus of the City Council right now, and the city leadership needs to be on providing voters with the education that they need in order to exercise their rights. This is something that people have already raised their hand in favor of, and the idea of kind of backpedaling from that sort of mandate is highly problematic. I think the city needs to focus on doing everything that they can and engaging other stakeholders in this process of educating people so that they understand what that what the options are that are available to them.
