"Martinez, from the White House Council on Environmental Quality says the plan is big because the problem is big. We have an opportunity. Now. This is our key opportunity to transform Our economy as well as our infrastructure. Republicans in Congress, though, have not included most of this funding and their infrastructure counter proposals. And even if the money does come through Tony reams at the University of Michigan says the government does not have a good system for reaching all the homes that need work, because one of the challenges with so many of our programs is that It is very individualistic. They usually rely on homeowners applying for help. Reams would like cities to think of housing more like essential infrastructure that requires regular maintenance. I used to work in local government and we planned out our sewer pipe replacements. We planned out our water pipe replacement street replacements based on the age of that infrastructure. And it's the same with housing right cities could put entire neighborhoods on a schedule, he says. Go door to door checking to see what they need. Kimberly Foreman, executive director of Environmental Health Watch has worked in Cleveland's neighborhoods for decades, says You Do have to be careful, though. We always got to ask the community. What do they want? Versus saying We had an answer. You should do this. You can renovate homes and install new equipment, she says. But it'll only work well, if the people who live there, understand those changes and want them.

"white house council" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Mostly this is here and now, Treasury secretary nominee Janet Yellen says. Now is the time to act big toe help provide the economy. Kind of stone always agree, but I think there is a consensus now. Without further action. We risk a longer, more painful recession now. And longer term scarring of the economy later. That's Ellen from her confirmation hearing today she's urging lawmakers to pass President elect Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion economic relief package, despite concerns about the proposals large price tag in the mounting national debt. And for more. Let's bring in NPR chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley. Hi, Scott. Good be with you Tell you We heard a little bit from yelling. But how does she plan to convince lawmakers that borrowing more money to help Americans get through the worst of this pandemic will actually be worth it in the long run? Well, her argument is that the cost of inaction would he be even higher? You know, there's a sense that as impressive as it was that we got these potentially very effective vaccines developed in record time. They've been slow getting into people's arms, so they want to speed that up. But even with that there's going to be you know, Maura, months before the economy is ready to reopen, and in the meantime, there are Some 18 million people on unemployment. There are small businesses that are struggling, and the proposal here is to extend a lifeline to those families and struggling businesses to keep them afloat until the vaccines get out and could do their work. Mm hmm. Yellen is expected to have an easy confirmation. She is highly regarded on both sides of the aisle, having been the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve and also chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisors. But she is likely to face opposition from some lawmakers and pushing Biden's broader economic agenda through Congress. What obstacles do you think she'll likely face? Well, there is opposition to some pieces of this $1.9 trillion proposal both some of the short term pieces and the long term pieces. There were questions raised in the committee hearing today about, for example, the $1400 relief payments. Some lawmakers don't think that's particularly well target, then they're also pieces of this package that are not really directly tied to the pandemic, like the push for a $15 minimum wage, so those air those are likely to see some opposition, especially from Republicans and the Senate. Have just about a minute with you. I want to ask you about this. Yellin was also asked about the Biden administration's approach to the U. S dollar. President Trump wanted a weaker dollar during his presidency. What impact does the value of the dollar actually have on the Econ and the economy overall? A weaker dollar makes it easier for US exporters to sell their products abroad. That makes us exports more competitive on the international market, and that's that's why President Trump has has advocated for that. But Yellen touted sort of the traditional US party line, which is that the currency evaluation should be set by markets and that no country should Deliberately devalue its currency in the interest of boosting exports. NPR's Scott Horsley. Thank you. You're very welcome. So questions. Can an employer require employees to get a corona virus vaccine? The more people get vaccinated. The quick of the pandemic is temp down. That's how vaccines work. You've long had a show proof of some vaccines. When you travel a certain countries, kids have to have certain shots at most schools. Airlines's are already starting to require flyers to show proof they've tested negative and soon airlines sports arenas may ask for proof of the vaccination. So can employers require employees to roll up their sleeves? If I understand it correctly, The answer is yes. No. And maybe Dori Rice is a law professor at UC Hastings College of the Law. She specializes in vaccine law Policy. Professor Door Eat welcome. Thank you very much, and we see ethicists arguing this. This seems to be a really tough one with the Corona virus vaccines having to do with the fact that they have emergency use. At least from the U. S government talk a little bit about how that might complicate things. So there's legal uncertainty on whether you can mandate a vaccine under an emergency is authorization. On one hand, the law says, you have to let recipients know that they can refuse the vaccine and any consequences of that, so that would imply that they have to have a choice. On the other hand, the law does say that there could be consequences, and it says nothing to employers, so it's not directed that impose it all gives us conflicting signals, and it has never been before court. So normally in purse can mandate so maybe they commanded here, too, On the other hand, because this is new ground because this is the thing that's hasn't completed two years of testing. Then maybe we can too quiet, right? Which is why you have the ethicist our friend Dr Arthur Caplan saying, Hey, these air, basically experimental drugs, You know, a requirement would never hold up to a legal challenge. But you also have your fellow law professor Peter Meyers. Of George Washington University Law School, saying, Look, the FDA says, as you just said the recipient or their caregiver has the option to accept or refuse. And this is the Fizer. Vaccine. But as you just said, or alluded to, it says you have the right to refuse, Then it doesn't also say that you still have the rightto work. Employers, especially private employers have the right to decide who will work for them. And part of that, right is trying to create a safe environment. So one question is, If you require your workers to give the vaccine and something happened to a worker, there is both an ethical problem. And there might be a liability under Workerscompensation. On the other hand, if we don't require the vaccine from your workers And one of them infects another worker or a customer. Again. You face an ethical problem and potential liability. But I guess my question is if the FBI saying that somebody has the right to refuse a vaccination and doesn't seem to go further there Can an employer, fire them and say you have every right not to take the shot. I'm not going to hold you down and force you to take the shot. But our workforce needs to be protected. That's my right. And so I'm going to fire you. In other words. There's a muddy area there isn't there. There is a muddy area and it's going to probably end up with some employees doing exactly that. And this ending before a judge and the judge could go either way. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agency that the device is employers about discrimination in the workplace has a guidance that suggests that yes, you can mandate of vaccine under anyway. And to remind you implants have been managing testing, and many of the tests are still under any way, too, But it's still a risk if it goes to court well, and is there another middle ground. We're an employer might realize that it's a you know, right now it's just a legal jungle that we don't yet understand. And they might say, OK, I'm going to require that my workers all get vaccinated except that they have a medical Or religious exception or disability And with those people and anyone who's refusing to get a vaccine, I will insist on this, whether it's wearing a mask or sitting apart from everyone, in other words, yet, so there's a little bit of a distinction there people with medical exceptions. And people with religious objections. They have a legal right to be accommodated and one accommodation. Maybe you can come to work. But you need to work Peopie. So yes, you could. Say, Get the vaccine over Peopie get the vaccine or you're going to be the one that works remotely or the one that work separate from everybody else. Can someone refuse that and still keep their job? That's up to the employees in clerk and say This is your option. You can vaccinate put an extra pp. I will not employ you if you refuse both of them. Yeah. Do you think we're going to see this? You know that scenario, for instance, in court, I think we will and we have seen that Indian friend the mandate context with some employees. Challenge the mask mandate most of the time. It's unsuccessful. And how about we know the dollar store, for instance, which is a huge chain is already giving an additional compensation money. Two employees to get a vaccination. For some, it's hardship. They have to leave work or, you know they have to pay for whatever it might be. Does that run into any trouble? If it's seen as paying off workers to get them to vaccinate? It's actually very appropriate for workplace too. Give incentives for things that they could see the healthy behavior. For example, employers can have wellness programs in which they give bonuses to work is that Participating, stopping smoking programs and so forth. Giving money for vaccinating can be seen as a wellness program. You're giving in a financial incentive for people to do things that give them healthy. Fascinating. Dori Rice law professor at UC Hastings, College of the.

Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy
"City every thing that we have been saying we're now going on three plus years is now true there is a miscarriage of justice they set up general Flynn we now have hand written notes to prove it where do we stand and your thoughts what we have even more evidence now Sean than we had yesterday we did a new filing at about one o'clock this afternoon with a report from the FBI that completely exonerated planets of January fourth of any sort of Russia problem and repeats in multiple ways that they had checked all the government files on him the FBI files the DA files probably ASCII files all those those two were redacted and found no derogatory information on him whatsoever so then we learned a task a confidential informant against them from the other information I have another that staff and helpers and he's a total slimeball but was running an operation against when I'm probably through the office of net assessment James Baker colonel James Baker in the department of defense with his handler and we think banker that they could not be at the operator but the defense department Baker is the one who had the connection that allowed him to get the transcript of the Kinsley act calls that he then probably leaked to his friend David Ignatius there been recent disclosures of how cozy their relationship was which was inappropriate for more reasons than one and we've just got more and more evidence of the strong page text messages hell struck at the instructions of seven four went back in which means the upper echelon of the FBI Comey and McCabe went back in and kept the following general Flynn from being closed he references their own incompetence and realizing that the file has been closed even though it was supposed to be on so they started all over again and start making up the attempt for the Logan act delegations and set up the interview now as I read these hand written notes and and new information that has come out potential questions for DD's call explain what that is this is from struck that son an email from strong before McCabe is going to place the call to swing on the day of the interview that Comey was talking and bragging about his little speech on national January twenty fourth four days into the trump administration and McCabe now general Flynn it's been widely reported ask or do I need a lawyer anything in Andrew McCabe lied to him did he not and deny him his Miranda rights well actually technically Maranda doesn't apply in the non custodial setting but what they always do is at least mention of one thousand one possibility the false statement possibility and what that means that they have plans and schemes by other information we have not even do that with general Flynn there emails yesterday produced that recommended that they do that and note that they always do that at least mention it in an interview and they decided here because it was planned not to mention it at all they schemes and plans and met at length about it to decide to keep him relaxed and unguarded and then I would not have their and what wouldn't a White House council of as well what is the nature of this then again improper process was and protocol what is the nature of the discussion with general Flynn and if they had the Telemus about an investigation into planned and Russia well that point the White House counsel would say will red flags general Flynn they probably would have told you probably need a lawyer that would have happened now in that and then these other you know hand written notes what is our goal now why would any FBI agent ever have to ask the question because the goal should be truth the goal should be justice they say then it goes on truth admission R. or to get him to lie get him we're trying to get him to do something or and then it's so so we can then prosecute him or get him fired well that sounds like a perjury trap but I'm not the smart lawyer that you are Sydney about one that was obviously written obviously their goal and that's even more apparent in the text messages of Strzok and page and others that came out in the production today where they also talk about using a defensive briefing as a pretext to talk to him they're trying to figure out a way to talk to him in such a way that he doesn't know he's being interviewed so they could try to trap him or make something up against him and they wound up having to just make it up and we learn more in today's production also about how Mr Strzok did massive added to the original agents three oh two and was trying very hard to keep that other agents employees in the report despite his significant changes to it and was talking to Lisa page about that she was fussing with him that helps lobbyists work was on it all right I'm I want to get John Solomon here in here in a second but Sydney what we now knows that this was a set up that they knew ahead of time that they had put this case to rest they resurrected it for political purposes we know even earlier and and the attorney general's confirm this that in fact when we've confirmed it that it was premeditated fraud on the FISA court because they will warn John Solomon will address this in a minute and that is they will warn that the dirty dossier that Hillary paid for should not be trusted it was political in nature it's unverified and my and that Christopher Steele has an agenda numerous times but they took the unverified later we find out unverifiable odd dirty Russian dossier that even apparently the Russians knew was going to Hillary Clinton which brings up a whole new story likely Russian disinformation even The New York toilet paper times got that was used as the foundation for all four FISA warrants totally debunked at this point they never even tried to verify it and then they took away Carter page's civil liberties and constitutional rights they spied on a candidate a transition team and deep into the presidency of Donald Trump those last words are Attorney General bars are and then we have other issues involving helper and Joseph miss foot in Brandon and and clapper which I assume at some point will be addressed to hear Sydney but here's what happened they denied that we now know that general Flynn is even a bigger hero don't week that what we have been saying on this program and thank god for you because you've got the crap beat out of you all a lot you work your your you know what off offered no money for the most part pro bono and donations from generous people thank god because this guy went bankrupt and he fell on the sword to save his son is not true Sidney Powell yes yes the generosity of the American people has kept our litigation going in his defense and we've learned that there was a secret side deal of course but generally they have promised not to indict his son but the judge didn't know it and we found documentary evidence only recently that Covington and Burling as per our lawyers and the prosecutor Mr van crack it made this a secret side deal deliberately to avoid that Mr Bannon cracks obligation to produce that exculpatory or impeachment information to any future defendant that they wanted general Flynn to testify against so it was another example of them cracked deliberately trying to hide the ball of exculpatory evidence and believe that the same time we on at the same time the judge did not note that the plea was coerced at and the plea was course because they said well we didn't think ally but you're going to admit to lying rose we're going after your son which that is prosecutorial abuse to I don't want to keep John Solomon out of this discussion John you've brought amazing work here and you have a lot of updates we have to listen today's documents that should be forced into the public I think really bring to light the deliberate nature of what was going on here the normal process for the F. B. I. was taking its course they looked at general plan they decided he wasn't a Russian asset he posed no threat he should be okay to be the national security adviser and then this is a more right from their notes the seventh floor of the FBI got involved the seven floors James Comey and Andrew McCabe and they stop the closure of the files the they were gonna treats when the right way and just give me a defensive briefing I move on and they put a stop to it and then they can talk this interview and you
What does the coronavirus mean for the global economy?
"Got to get a grip we have to ask ourselves rationally logically impact here Eckley academically what does the corona virus mean for the global economy let's not just assume that everything is going to result in economic disaster and please on file you have to say this I said it last week but I guess I should say it again I am talking here only about the money I'm only talking about the finances the economy I'm not talking about the human toll which shows of course we all know the far more important toll here and I'm very sorry if this has affected you personally or your family we've seen horrible stories of illness deaths and people stranded in isolation quarantine often in foreign countries I that's matters that matters a lot frankly matters more than what I'm talking about but it is a personal finance show song gonna stick to my screen here what we've got to do is recognize this is an economic related issue what does it mean for our economics so here's the info the White House national economic council and the White House council of economic advisers they're both jointly assessing the potential short term and long term effects of the coronavirus and so far they say there's limited economic impact they say it's going to reduce our domestic output by zero point two percentage points now let me just put that in context for you last year our GDP the gross domestic product is the total value of all the goods and services we produced in our nation last year our GDP rose two point three percent they say that this is going to cut it by zero point two Cincinnati two point three you have two point one in fact they say if this is really awful it'll cause a reduction of point seven five what were two point three last year so instead of two point three it'll be about one point six so this is not some is horrific to you doesn't to me how about the vice chair of the federal reserve he said recently that the broader economy be fine if this virus is resolved within six months he noted that slowdowns caused by a temporary crisis are usually followed by significant up tech is the economy stabilizes but let's just take a look what's going on in China directly China's GDP last year we were two point three percent growth they were six point one China is on fire China is just rock and but what about the coronavirus in China well Oxford economics says the virus is gonna cost China's growth it's not going to be six point one this year they say it's gonna be five point six the colonists were surveyed last Friday by the Wall Street journal they say that the first quarter growth for China will be four point nine a global economic growth will be two point three wanted in two point five dollars these numbers are just not that big a deal Goldman Sachs says it's expecting the virus to reduce U. S. growth by one half of one percentage point in the first quarter and that we're going to recover that in the second quarter with minimal impact for the whole year overall it says that these viral outbreaks typically last only a few months of activities back to normal within six to nine months and based on that Golden economists say China's economic growth for the year will be five and a half percent the earlier forecast of five point nine they say if things just get more prolonged as a result of the outbreak growth instead of five point five will be five percent noticed we're still talking about growth is sort of like saying you're on the highway doing seventy miles an hour and you're going to slow down to fifty miles an hour you're still moving forward you're still making progress yeah fifty feels a lot slower than seventy but it's not like going backwards I NG economist iris paying says retail sales in China are going to expand despite the virus but she says they're only going to expand three to four percent this quarter would have been even more the Congressional Budget Office documents yet the CBO says they've modeled the economic effects of a flu pandemic and they said that one hundred thousand deaths would cut our GDP by one percent it wouldn't even cause a recession focus on that number this is amazing the CBO says that if we suffer a hundred thousand people dying in the US our economy will still be growing by the way the flu in the U. S. has sickened nineteen million people this year we've put a hundred and eighty thousand in the hospital ten thousand have died from the flu the corona virus so far four hundred people have died worldwide so explain to me why everybody is panicking over the coronavirus ones getting all the headlines we should be more worried about the flow then you should be worried about the coronavirus

"Four one, Sean if you wanna be a part of the program. All right. A ton of breaking news on the deep state. We now know the Justice department literally destroyed the tax that were on struck and pages iphones when they were given those phones courtesy of the special counsel's office fascinating. How quickly they can. They can get rid of them clean them up send them back to the manufacturer white clean. And it's beyond frustrating. We have Christopher Steele saying that he was hired to help Hillary challenged the 2016 election results as an August. Second declaration with the funneled money through Perkins. We and and then hiring fusion GPS which hires former mix agent foreign agent steel that uses Russian contacts. Full of lies, but it becomes the basis of a Fiso warrant, they don't tell the judge visor judges that Hillary paid for it. That information is disseminated. The Russian lies are told that the American people it spreads like wildfire Russian lies to influence an election. And I think our big bombshell. That has come out today. Are these comments by former FBI director James Comey because these basically boasting about setting up general Flynn back in the first week of the Trump administration. I frankly, he says, well, this is something I probably wouldn't have done or wouldn't have gotten away with in a more organized administration. It was week one was organized about any administration week one. But in the Bush administration or the Obama administration at the FBI wanted to send agents at the White House itself to interview a senior official you'd have to work through the White House. Council and there would be discussions and approvals on who would be there. And I thought that's early enough. Let's just send a couple of guys over. Now. This is after a few other events happened one is that we now know deputy FBI director mccade told Flynn. No, no, no. You don't need a lawyer for this. Okay. But becomes the basis of a? Although admission of lying to the FBI. And remember the information they had a transcript obtained illegally because it had to do with surveillance with no minimization of an American citizen. And then, of course, unmasking of general Flynn leaking the roar intelligence because they got a transcript of the whole thing. Bragging about setting up a thirty-three year veteran here. And now the judge in this case, this is going to be fascinating. This is the same judge that I've been telling you about Emmet Sullivan who literally unloaded on horrible tactics of the DOJ in the Ted Stevens case. All right. Joining us. Now, we have to freedom caucus members. They have been in the forefront of fighting on a lot of these issues, and whether or not there's going to be a government shutdown. We'll get to that to Louie Gohmert at Texas and Representative Jody hice Virginia. Guys. Welcome to the program. Thanks for being with us. Hey, Sean, great to be with you. Talking to you, Sean, and I'm glad you brought up Ted Stevens case because it's another reminder that that was Muller was FBI director, and the one that actually the FBI agent that was a whistle blower in that case got run out of the FBI on on Muller's watch and the one that actually hit Tori evidence, and and basically frame Ted Stevens that agent went on to do well and continue to move on to bigger and better things, that's the way molar ran things. And now he's in charge of this. It is at outrage outrage, and let me tell you, you know, for all of my professional career as as been prosecutor, I've been quarter pointed on defense case in federal corden, stay court, judge and chief Justice, but but every other law enforcement agency in the country. Now videotapes they audiotape, you know, you go into the interview room there is a camera there. So there is no question about what is what said the FBI has been able to get away with all of this modernization of communication because they were so straight and we could trust them. And when they did an interview they didn't need an audio or videotape because they were going to make a note of what was said, and we could trust that the trouble with that is now we have caught so many of the top FBI people under the Obama administration and now under Trump administration. Album Weiying that I think it's time. And I hope that that judge Sullivan will help initiate this by having a ruling I'm afraid he's not gonna do it. But a ruling that sends a message to the FBI acc- come on into the modern age you start audio taping because your notes that you try to manipulate it. And maybe even change after the fact to manipulate are not good enough to go after somebody for lying. Let me get. Jodi in on this. I look at this. And I am flabbergasted at the statements of Jim Komi, former FBI and the actions of call me and the actions of McCabe I and snowing this this judge's background Sullivan's background and the Ted Stevens case. I I could see him vacating the whole thing. And maybe doing what he did the last time. And that would be appointing a special prosecutor to look into the prosecutors is I've always been saying. Yeah, I think you're spot on Sean. I mean here, you know, these people were so focused on getting Trump that they were willing to set up a three star general. And I mean that that is appalling. And as you mentioned earlier, we're talking about the first week of of this administration. There's four things with this. They really are disturbing to me as before the interview with Lynn during the interview. And then afterwards there was not a they didn't follow procedure ain't even setting up. The interviews. It's just kind of casually. Listen a couple of ages over here and talk with him. Then the meeting itself is not even aware that it's a it's a interview it doesn't appear at least says that's what's being alleged. In fact, he gave a tour the White House after the interview he was just a casual meeting as far as he was concerned. I listen, I guys I gotta tell you something. I treat little old Sean Hannity like this. Maybe I expected, you know, this is a this is an American hero three-star general. Absolutely. This is a guy with setting up a guy that served his country for thirty three years. What is going on here? They didn't even whether it was the details of this until seven months after the interview. I mean, how do you? How do you have an interview like this with the FBI? And then they did not even turn in the what the interview consisted of until almost in interview. But there's a problem with well, hang on the and they'll tell you this is. Great piece that was put out by the federalist today. But call me in the latest interview with trae he said you'll. Yeah, I think I'd probably did look at that three. Oh two, but he was gone and may twenty seventeen and then the struck page memos referred to a three oh two with an F in front of it, which probably means Flynn. And so they're caught red hat. That means that it was either destroyed or altered to me one or the other pick your pick your poison Louis at it. Sure looks like it was altered or maybe redone, and they got rid of evidence that was there. But under the law the case Brady, you have to disclose exculpatory evidence. And they're all kinds of exculpatory things here that it appears not only did they not disclose it to the defense. But they actually hit it much like they did in some other matters we dealt with. But let me tell you the whether it's Sean Hannity or a decorated. Hero. Of course. You're my hero to Sean. But but they. I'm not I'm not general Flynn. Wait, hang on. They made this guy. Sella's freaking house. This is ridiculous because he's a target. They have to give you your right? And clearly general Flynn was a target. They were coming after him their required to read him the right? And when your target read the rights day didn't doing dude that they were setting him up. And I don't know what judge Sullivan. I know what I would rule. This is such an outrage me if I can add to that. I mean, you're exactly right. He was not even allowed to have an attorney in this interview, and the double standard is glaring when they interviewed Hillary Clinton. She had what mine attorneys in there with with her when she was interviewed Roddy FBI, but here, which we. Yeah. Yeah. She had witnesses with her too. Rollout witness to be in with another witnesses testimony. They did that with jewelry. Well, I'm gonna tell you something here. I I it's now beginning to come together. There have been rumors of this. I have heard for well over a year. You're a half. John Solomon has heard them. Greg. Jarrett has hers them Sarah Carter is heard them in. You know, we've discussed it. But this seems to now be the smoking gun here that we now have and what are you both make of this special counsel that they hired struck and page. Find out that these two are politically, you know, the ones that exonerated Hillary. He was writing the exoneration before he ever interviewed her then he racist to the Russia investigation. He's the one saying well the hundred million zero Hillary should win and so- Muller gets rid of them quietly than these phones are white clean. How conveniently. Yeah. And you know, the answer Muller wanted people that we're going to treat the Trump administration and anybody that was close to him very unfairly he knew Weisman's record. And you've talked about this more than anybody. Sean, Weisman destroyed thousands and thousands of lives in a case that wasn't even a crime knocked down nine zero and molar knew that he doesn't care as long as he could destroy these lives. This is a really serious. One one of the few people. That's why would he ever hire? The guy that lost tens of thousands of jobs lost in the Enron investigation. He's been cited and excoriated on the issue of sculptural evidence, read license to lie. I mean, it's chock full of information. About Muller's pit bull. Just like genie Ray is at the Michael Kohn sentencing. The she'd worked for the Clinton foundation. I think I'm the only one that have been saying we find one Republican here. Oh Muller is a Republican. I don't think so. And you know, all of these guys are best buddies together. And I don't know what to think if this is how our top officials now have acted. I don't I don't even know if there's any hope Jody hice, Sean, I'll just say, I'm I'm thrilled that finally at least there's a glimmer of hope the judge Sullivan is going to hold Mahler accountable. This is long overdue, and it appears that at least we have the possibility the potential of that taking place. Well. With destroying Ted Stevens live. I'm hoping that Sullivan won't let him get away with destroying the I don't think it was Muller in the Ted Stevens case was it was the FBI director. Well, he wasn't the way. He was he involved in the prosecution because I was they went after six Pacific people the DOJ the whistle blower to be fired and the one that engaged to end the setup the fraud. She went on to do great things from there, you know. And I mean, better jobs rather. But it also brings back to mind the meeting where Rosenstein is sitting there and most of the media, not you. But most of the media what she kidding when he said he'd wear wild. Was you not kidding? That was not the point of that the point of that is that you had high DOJ officials sitting around conspiring to take down a duly elected president believable, whether he was kidding or not stay there. I gotta take a break more with Jody hice Louie Gohmert, and we'll get our legal experts in Greg Jarrett, David shown on the same issues also going to play part of the interview Harris Faulkner had with the president today. Hey, if you are like, our friend, Linda you bought a timeshare, and you never go to it. Then you pay all these maintenance fees, probably coming due in January. And maybe your wish she got you know, how can I get out of? This. Burdensome inexpensive timeshare. I don't even use it. I thought I. Use it. But I don't use it. And I paid for it every year, and I'm wasting my money because I can be paying for real vacations. Anyway, our.
"white house council" Discussed on MSNBC Morning Joe
"They had a tweet fascinating tweet that really put the numbers right there in front of the president to read. The White House is clarifying tweet by President Trump on the state of the economy, saying portion of the facts, the president put out were wrong. The president tweeted yesterday, the GDP rate, four point, two percent is higher than the unemployment rate. Three point, nine percent for the first time in over one hundred years. Exclamation point while the GDP and unemployment figures are correct. The one hundred years part is not. In fact, in that timeframe that GDP rate has topped the jobless rate more than sixty times with the most recent being in early two thousand six, the administration was forced to correct the air with chairman of the White House council of economic advisers. Kevin Hassett telling reporters yesterday, the mistake likely was the result of incorrect information being passed along to the president. The history of thought of how errors happen is not something that you know I can engage in because like from from the initial fact to what the president said that, I don't know the whole chain of command. But what is true is that it's the highest in ten years, and at some point, somebody probably conveyed it to him adding zero to that and they shouldn't have done that. So Joe, what's zero here, there attends place here there. Obviously, as I said, it happened twelve years ago and has happened many, many times in the period. The president described as this being the first. I mean, these politicians do they exaggerate usually though. That little closer, you don't usually go well, unemployment's blow four percent. If it's like four percent or four point, one percent usually don't multiply it ten times the amount, but that's what Donald Trump always does and lease. It always seems that good is just not good enough for Donald Trump what he's doing poorly. He tells everybody he's the best ever that is. White House is running, extraordinarily smooth and same with this poll numbers, but even when things are going well, even when he's he's saying the Obama recovery continue into his term. He can't just let it go. He has to gerate tenfold. That's what's so baffling because Donald Trump right now has strong economic story to tell. But instead he creates these distractions through his own unforced errors, and we'll continue to make such unforced errors as I'm sure. The midterms approach, and he's going to have to exert a level of self control as President. Obama begins to appear more frequently back in the public eye campaigning for democratic candidates. And that seems to definitely pose a threat to any stability that he might actually possess. None. Another interesting note out of this story, John Heilemann yesterday just sort of a media watch at Fox News put out a correction on Donald Trump in real time, and it was quite a stinging rebuke recent quarters of GDP growth higher than the unemployment rate, and they listed a ten to twelve a dozen or so time to that happen. It reminds me also a few weeks back when the Florida candidate for governor talked about monkeying up the economy there. The recovering their Fox News actually came on and distance themselves from to Santa's is language. Yes, me know that quote, still from the Washington Post show after the the op Ed came out the anonymous Ben came out the quote where the person said the on background quote where he said, the sleeper cells have awoken apparently the sleeper cells of also Fox News..
Amazon is being used as a laboratory for new products
"Ten years ago, the financial crisis changed the global economy as we knew it. If you've been following our project divided decade, you've heard some of the many ways that crisis also affected people's personal economic lives in today's installment of our series. How we changed. We hear from shontae Ray talking to us from one of the three toy stores. She owns in the Saint Louis area in one thousand nine hundred five. I took a job as a clerk in a little toy store and Edwardsville while I was getting my BFA in sculpture, and just I feel like kind of became a natural retailer. My husband was very supportive and seemed like he was willing to dive in lead a toilet with me. So we bought three giant stores with thirty five employees and the future was wide open. Two thousand eight. The holidays can didn't come. We didn't sell any doll houses. We didn't sign castles, train tables at stopped, and we came out of that season with a what the heck is going on. What? What just happened? Part of our strategy during the worst part of the crisis was to go directly to our Bank and talk to them. They could see it going on with everyone. So it wasn't a surprise that we were also struggling and we renegotiated the terms of our SPA loan. In two thousand thirteen. We went to our normal Bank appointment and the bankers called the entirety of our of our loan. We were shocked and heartbroken. The Bank guy cried with us. We cried and we were crushed. We sent out a letter on a Friday afternoon telling everyone that we were closing our stores. And at that point, hundreds and hundreds of families came people like, what are you talking about? This can't be possible. You know, I had moms that are like my water broke in your store. As all these families were coming in the question kept coming up, well, what do you need? Like? How much do you need? And we, you know, we said, I, it's a lot. I don't know. We don't know what it what we need to keep going, but we were kind of forced to give a number. And so we said, well, if we had seventy five thousand dollars, then we could push the Bank off, but I'm not comfortable with that, you know? And that's kind of where we left it. My husband and I was are actually our tenth wedding anniversary pi day twenty thirteen. My phone exploded and they had raised eighty two thousand dollars, and we're giving it to me no strings attached. And we were floored. When you have a town that says, we really want you here. You know, it's a very powerful statement by their grace was the only reason we're here. Well, in my hard work. The company shanty Ray and her husband own is called happy up Inc. We've got some pictures on our Instagram that marketplace APM. And while you're there, tell us your story with the hashtag how we changed. Welfare has been back in the news lately with the White House council of economic advisers calling earlier this month for reform of social programs, like food stamps and rental housing assistance. But while welfare has long, been one of those hot button issues that people tend to have a lot of opinions about the facts about how the system works in this country aren't so well known over the last few years. Our wealth and poverty team has been working to change that in their podcast, the uncertain our marketplace's Chrissy Clark led an investigation into how federal welfare funding actually gets spent across the country, and the answers are pretty surprising. She joins me now with an update on her reporting. Hi Chrissy. Hey, Amy. So we use the word welfare to mean a lot of things. What are we talking about specifically today? Yeah, so it can be used to refer to everything from food stamps, Medicaid. But what we're talking about right now is the program known as temporary assistance for needy families or Tanith. And this is the federal program that provide. Ads, cash assistance to poor families after welfare reform in nineteen, Ninety-six cash assistance, stop being something based strictly on need. And now there, lots of work requirements and time limits involved. The thing that changed is that welfare became a block grant. Capped at about sixteen point, five billion dollars a year. And now each year, the federal government gives a certain amount of town of money to each state states have to contribute some of their own funds. And then the key part is that each state decides how they're going to spend their pot of federal and state ten of money, and they are given a lot of flexibility and what do we know about how states are actually spending the money, so they're spending it in some pretty unexpected ways. The first surprise is that for the last few years, if you look at all the states combined only about a quarter of Tanna funds goes to actual cash assistance to poor families. Then another quarter of the funds goes to what you might call work, supports, things like job training. And child care transportation to and from work. But that's all to say that just a little more than half of Tanna funds go to what most people think of as like the core purpose of welfare, which is money directly assisting poor families or helping them get a job, where does that leave the other half? So that's where things get even more surprising. So states use some of it to fill their own budget gaps for unrelated things like pre k. and child protective services. And then there's this kind of crazy quilt of other programs that the money goes to for many years. For example, in Oklahoma, some welfare funding was going to marriage counseling workshops, not just for poor couples, but for anyone who signed up. And then Michigan is an interesting example about fifteen percent of Tanta funds there go into college financial aid and scholarship programs, and these largely benefit students from middle and upper income families, not just poor kids. So in fact, when you crunch the numbers, actually. More Tanith money is going to these college scholarship programs in Michigan than to actual cash assistance for needy families. Wow. Is that because there are just fewer families that need that help? No. So so nationally poverty has slightly declined in the last couple of years since the recession when it spiked. But the poverty rate is just about as high as it was back in nineteen Ninety-six. When we overhauled welfare around thirteen percent of Americans live below the poverty line. And that's about twenty four thousand dollars a year for a family of four. The other startling thing that I found in my reporting is that nationally very few families who are poor receive cash assistance. In fact, there are more avid postage stamp collectors than there are people who get cash welfare in the in the in the country nationally, just twenty three out of every one hundred families who live at or below the poverty line gets cash assistance in more than a dozen stay. As the decline is even more pronounced less than ten out of every hundred. Poor families gets cash assistance and what's behind that decline. So part of it is the time limits. You're just not allowed to receive assistance for as long even if you are still struggling with poverty. It's also just a harder program to navigate. Now, the application process is more difficult and more time consuming. There are these work requirements that can be hard to meet. So for families who don't have a lot of resources that might just discourage them from even applying in your reporting, what did you find in terms of what this actually means for families who are out there struggling to get by and could use that cash assistance? Yeah. So I've talked to people who sell their blood plasma to get by. They're also just the everyday tough choices that families face. I talked to one mom who on a given day might be grappling with whether to buy toilet paper or cough syrup for her kids because she just did not have enough money to buy both. So the hard question what is being done, if anything about this. So there is a welfare reform Bill that has been introduced in the house that would put more oversight on how states spend their money. And in the hearings leading up to the Bill, a member of congress actually pointed to things that we had revealed in our reporting like these college financial aid programs that we're getting ten if money that was going to higher income families. They pointed to that as one of the problems with how the program works. These days, the Bill had been expected to come to the floor this month. But in the run-up to the midterm elections, it looks like welfare is just too hot button topic to touch right now. So we'll have to see. All right, Christy Clark host of our documentary podcast, the uncertain our Krissy. Thanks so much. Thanks for having me.

When you think about buying this week's groceries, chances are Amazon, isn't your go to destination? At least not yet, but that doesn't mean food isn't selling on the site. Nisha novelty food products are increasingly popular on Amazon, which has kind of turned it into a laboratory for testing new food products. Vanessa Wong as written about this. She's the deputy business editor for BuzzFeed news. I asked her, I some examples. Some of their bestselling products include like protein powder and like weird chocolate covered almonds that you've never heard of and strange, like limited time or promotional offerings from some of the bigger food manufacturers. So like one of the big themes this summer, you might know this a lot like Jurassic World Food being watched on Amazon, which includes like a twenty five dollar box of Kellogg's. Frosted flakes that comes with a digital screen loaded with behind the scenes footage of the film. Film which you can only get from a box of cereal on Amazon. You know, twenty five dollars sounds pretty cheap. That's true. You know, it's interesting. I was wondering like who actually buys this stuff, and I found this guy who bought the drastic world, frosted flakes and admitted that like in no sense was it worth twenty five bucks? He could have bought the cereal and like gone to see the movie for less than that. Why are they putting some things on Amazon that you wouldn't find say in a grocery store, there are a couple of reasons. It's kind of like a lower risk environment. So at traditional grocery stores, they actually charge manufacturers fee to have their products on display. And so there's that, you know, there are a lot of kind of logistical complications and supply chain things that get in the way of launching a new product. And when you go an Amazon, you kind of have a lot more control over the situation in terms of like how many you sell, how many produce how it's marketed. The thing that is a little. Complicate about Amazon is that Amazon obviously has a lot of control over like algorithms and like where your things show up, which obviously has a lot of impact on whether or not consumers see them and buy them. And how does this fit into Amazon's overall strategy? I mean, obviously, with the purchase of whole foods, it's a bigger player in the grocery space. Is this part of its larger effort to take over? You know, when it comes to Amazon's strategy who can really say at this point, they are like all over the place, but in terms of their food strategy, obviously they're trying to beef up like what types of offerings they have for customers. And one of the ways to like differentiate themselves from brick and mortar grocery is to like, have a different product assortment. So you know, by getting food startups launch, they're kind of like novel and novelty snacks and big manufacturers to kind of like tryout promotional items and other things kind of like brings customers to your sites in. Talking about food, right. Well, how long do you think before we might get there where people go to Amazon for their regular groceries, not just their Jurassic world, frosted flakes I think we're a long ways from their e commerce has had a lot more success in other industries like electronics, apparel, things that ship. Well, groceries is complicated. I mean, aside from like snacks and kind of other dry goods that are temperature sensitive at cetera. It's really hard to get people like, you know, regular food that they can cook that day. The market share of like ecommerce and food is tiny. It's like less than five percent. Still the nessa Wong is deputy business editor for BuzzFeed news. Thanks, thanks so much. At last count more than six and a half million public school children receive special education services, how schools educate those children is governed under a federal law that covers thirteen disabilities. A lawsuit about that law went all the way to the US supreme court last year. The court's ruling changes. What kinds of services schools and districts are legally obligated to provide? Marketplace's Lizzie O'Leary went to find out what that means for the country's largest school district New York City. I hate it. I'm listening Heinsohn picking in a bright orange shirt eight year Old Aden's ready to show off what he's learning in third grade. French, his mom Alana Philip remembers meeting his French teacher. I said French, he studied French because in pre k. Aden was diagnosed with a subtype of autism. One thing that really comes out clearly is it seems as though this thing is going to take a lot of money, there was the occupational therapist. So Aden could learn to hold a pencil. The reading program at one hundred fifty bucks a session and a private neuro psych evaluate and that costs forty five hundred dollars out of pocket in New York City within sixty days of requesting an evaluation. Parents, teachers and other school staff are supposed to hash out an implement a student's individualized education program or IEP under federal law. It's the document that lays out exactly what services a student with disabilities gets. Here's Alana. Philip again, what I had to really fight full was one to one tutoring, an extra support as we know not. All schools have the same resources that's Laurie pod Vesper. She's an advocate at include NYC a nonprofit that helps students with disabilities access services. She says school, sometimes make recommendations based on what they can give, not necessarily what students need in the past New York students with disabilities were often taught separately in their own classes. But then in two thousand ten, they changed the funding formula. Now the district give schools more money if they keep kids with disabilities in mainstream classrooms. The idea being that if you educate students with disabilities alongside their peers, they'll do better academically and socially, but it's just that enough again, Laurie pod Vesper who's a proponent for these kinds of classrooms? My gut reaction is no. There's still huge achievement gap between students with disabilities in New York City. In general education students, New York City schools spent three point, seven billion dollars on classroom instruction. For special education students last year about thirty percent of such spending and they're doing better at getting students classroom services than ever before. But still one in four kids don't get the full services. They're legally entitled to two families. Recently sued the district in a statement, the New York City department of education says they ensure students with disabilities have access to education in quote, the least restrictive environment, and they say they try to resolve concerns as quickly as possible nationwide. A lot of families have sued Jack Robinson Representative, Colorado family whose case went to the supreme court. You have this inherent tension between what the parents want and believe is necessary for their child to succeed. And you know, with the school district is is willing to do alerts financially or just conceptually the supreme court ruled unanimously that just access to education is not enough chief Justice. John Roberts wrote, schools need to offer. Services. So students quote, make progress appropriate in light of the child circumstances. But the first time children with disabilities are entitled to more than just the bare minimum, the federal law, which gives students with disabilities rights to an education also promises funding to cover forty percent of extra special education costs today, only fourteen percent of those funds have come through leaving it up to states and districts to figure out how and what they can pay for since the supreme court ruling the federal education department released guidance to schools clarifying their increased duties. What we don't know yet is how that will play out for students like Aden or anyone else with a disability since divided by ten by ten. Correct? Good boy, high five for now, it likely still means a lot of hard work in New York. I'm Lizzie O'Leary for marketplace. You can check out a marketplace, special report on the economics of disability.

"There is not yet a bill for the republican plan to overhaul the tax code but the white house already has one of its main talking points this week press secretary sarah huckabee sanders tweeted that american households would get what she called a four thousand dollar raise from the plan and pure political reporter daniel kurtz laibin has been digging into this number what it means and how realistic it is and she's here with us in the studio to tell us about what she's learned now hairy to an extra four thousand dollars would be a big deal for a lot of american families you report though that households should not count on this kind of a raise why not right so we can't exactly fact check a prediction but here's what i can tell you there are several reasons to doubt this figure and this is tax policy and that means it's comparable laid out for us are at so in a recent report the white house's council of economic advisers said this if we cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to twenty percent that it will help workers the basic idea here is that when a company pays taxes some of that burden gets passed on to workers resulting in lower wages so a higher tax bill ends up resulting in lower wages likewise a lower tax bill would result in higher wages for workers but here's the important thing economists disagree widely on how much of a businesses corporate tax burden is eventually passed on to workers so have bowed the white house get the specific number four thousand right so to reach that four thousand dollar figure the white house looked at a range of estimates but then relied on one particular one to do the math and that ended up showing that the average household in one year would end up getting more than four thousand dollars in income incidentally not only that but the white house says it that four thousand dollars is a conservative estimate they also said the actual figure could go as high as nine thousand dollars per household.
