"That is actually what previous administrations have done. That's what some of the aid to this. These countries are supposed to accomplish to take away the motivations for people to flee, poverty and violence. President Trump, of course, has done the exact opposite cut funding to these countries kind of punitive lease assuming that then they would cut down on their out migration. I don't really know. How that's supposed to work. You know, a president's limited in his power. Right. And this is why you saw it. You see it happened to lots of presents. You have President Obama come in and say that he was going to change the ways of Washington, but then got sucked up by the ways of Washington. Do you have President Trump who essentially comes in making an outsider argument from the complete other end of the spectrum saying that he's going to come in? And he's going to drain the swamp and he's. Gonna make all these changes. And then he's getting frustrated with his homeland security secretary because he can't implement the kind of hardline measures. He wants he essentially pushes to shut down the government because he's not able to get what he wants. And then declares a national emergency over a border wall. All those tactics have failed except in one way, which is all throughout. He has kept the issue that he considers to be the most important to him and his voters on the front burner. All right.

"NPR's, Scott Horsely and Danielle Kurt Slaven. Thank you very much. You bet. This is the politics show from NPR. I'm Scott detro-. So every week we focus on one race. And we already talked about the Georgia governor's race in the show. But here's the thing. That's just a week and a half left before election day a lot of big races to talk about. So this week. We're gonna add a second race of the week. And to do that we've got Dominica Montinaro of NPR. Hey dominica. Hey there, and we're gonna bring in Brett Jaspers of member station.

The Arizona Senate race is going to make history. It's elected eleven senators since becoming a state in one thousand nine twelve none of them, though, have been a woman, and that's definitely going to change this November. That's because voters here will either elect democratic Representative Kirstin cinema. She's a former social worker or Republican congresswoman Martha mcsally, she's retired from the military. With the rank of Colonel, and she was the first woman to fly in combat. This is for the seat being vacated by Jeff flake who decided not to run again because he said he just couldn't see himself getting elected given on the Republican party has gone one way. And he's gone. The other way Brett what is the strategy that that MC Sally and cinema are taking into this campaign. What if they both been focusing on? Well, both of them have tried to re make themselves to some degree cinemas project of remaking has lasted many years. She was in the state legislature in a very progressive member of that years ago, and she's been one of the most moderate members of the house of representatives in congress. Whereas MC Sally also started off as a moderate congresswoman. But in this campaign has really embraced President Trump soubra, we could really say this for for most Senate races at this point in an election. But this has gotten really negative while we were.

"Year, we learned our oldest has a rare chronic disease. Preexisting condition. We know what that's like I've just Holly. I support forcing insurance companies to cover all pre existing conditions. Well, that is a statement that you could argue is very much at odds with the lawsuit that he is a part of to unwind the Affordable Care Act. If you're just joining us. You're listening to the politics show from NPR. I'm Scott detro- here in the studio with NPR's, Scott Horsely and Danielle Kurt Slaven talking about healthcare. So what is the basis of all of this focus on healthcare me? Do people care more about healthcare now than they did two years ago or four years ago? One is that ObamaCare is somewhat more popular now than it was back during a lot of the Obama administration of if you look at polling data from say twenty fourteen in two thousand fifteen ObamaCare was generally seen net. Unfavourably more people seeing it unfavourably than favorably that flipped right around the time that Donald Trump took office writer on January twenty seventeen you started seeing people about evenly split. Or more likely than not to say to see it favourably. And it's there are partisan breakdown in that is it more democrat or Republican support. I mean, Democrats definitely do support ObamaCare more than Republicans. Absolutely. But when you look at individual provisions like for example, preexisting conditions like we've been talking about those sorts of things are very popular things like that protecting people up until they're twenty six letting them stay on their parent's insurance people love, those the problem is when you look at the individual mandate, which is sort of the glue that helps keep ObamaCare together that is something that's unpopular, and so that was at the core of a lot of Republican attacks on ObamaCare during that whole time. But it's got something you always pointed out when we talked about this during repeal efforts is that those two things have to go each with each other to work, right? If you're going to make insurance companies cover all the stuff that's expensive you need to make people buy insurance. That's the economic argument. Even if the political argument, let's keep all the popular stuff and get rid of the stuff that people don't like. So we're talking about this with less than two weeks. To go before the midterms as as much as we can predict the future. What would it mean if the house is in democratic control versus Republican control when it comes to bills being passed that deal with healthcare? If Democrats were to win say the house and Republicans were to keep control of the Senate, then Democrats would at least be able to prevent the Republicans from making another run at repealing the Affordable Care Act. They might also be able to use their oversight powers to discourage the administration from chipping away at the Affordable Care Act. Although the White House would still have considerable leverage to make administrative changes in the law. Now, Democrats some Democrats on the left have been calling to go further than the Affordable Care Act and pass something like Medicare for all which Bernie Sanders has championed if they were to control just one chamber, of course, they wouldn't be able to do that. But they might be able to make some noise about it. This is where I want to jump in. And also point out what Republicans are saying about. Healthcare this year, which is it's not just playing defense. It's not just pushing back on democratic ads. I mean, one third of Republican ads are about healthcare. It's less than Democrats. But it's still sizeable and what they're doing aside from playing defense is also attacking Democrats on Medicare for all saying, you know, my opponent's. So so and so is just too liberal. She wants to or he wants to take away your Medicare, as you know, it take away your healthcare as you know, what if you like your employer sponsored healthcare. So and so is going to get rid of it. If they vote for Medicare for all, and you can see that shaping the healthcare discussion not just this year. But for years to come as more Democrats back that there's a lot of fear mongering going on there. We saw for example, the president wrote an op Ed for USA today was widely criticized for factory factual inaccuracies. In fact, USA today itself had to run a fact check the following day. But it has long been a successful gambit for either party to play on the fears of Medicare recipients that the other party might. I try to go after your Medicare in particular because older people are very regular voters. And if Republicans keep control can we expect more attempts to repeal ObamaCare, or do you think the current climate the way this has played politically the cycle. What would keep them from trying to do that? I mean, you can certainly imagine that there would be more attempts. But then again, I mean there's also given how fearful so many Americans have been about healthcare during the cyclists specially about things like preexisting conditions. I wonder and I'm just guessing here because he knows I wonder if they might be a bit ginger about the specific provisions they might be attacking like preexisting conditions. I think there are definitely some Republican activists who will want to finish the job. Now that John McCain has been replaced in the Senate by more reliable vote for the Republican agenda. But Danielle is right. There will also certainly be some wariness given the backlash they've gotten already and if Republicans gain some seats in the Senate three Republicans wouldn't be able to. Stop a repeal effort likely did this year. That's.

"In a lotta ways that hearing that Cavanaugh Blasi Ford hearing and the reaction to it that happened immediately. It was like reliving the 2016 election. Intent our most most definitely one thing. I would add here, by the way is let's say that Kavanagh's confirmation is derailed. You can imagine that people on the right will be phenomenally upset, and we'll themselves energized to turn out in November and will feel as if they're person got a raw deal in all of this. Can I should say that I think is an interesting part of this that isn't just about how voters feel or how people are running one thing. I've noticed is that at least three senators who normally walk around this building walk around the offices pretty much on encumbered except for having a few staff with them or walking around with police escorts with capitol. Police escorts Susan Collins, Jeff flake, and Chuck Grassley, all walks through the capital. Today with at least two police officers with them because this has become such a tense political moment. Democratic women have been really fired up in this election as Daniel looted to know, they've been looking to send a message to President Trump Democrats need Twenty-three seats to take back the house, and they're going to get their first shot at sending that message, and whether or not they're going to be able to do that is largely going to be tested in that battleground, even beyond the midterms this this could extend certainly beyond November. I mean, people are gonna remember this for sure people remember, Merrick garland, for example. I mean, this this could hold on for a while. And by the way, opinions change well after the fact I was looking at some polling today from nineteen ninety one and nineteen Ninety-two as of nineteen Ninety-one pulling found that around twenty four percent of Americans believed Anita hill in the Anita hill Clarence Thomas hearings one year later, forty four percent said they believed Anita hill is similarly a lower number believed. Clarence Thomas a year later opinions can change.

This is bigger than just the midterms total. You know, this is the five four vote that will place essentially, a conservative majority in place for a generation potentially. And for the first time in seventy five years, or so there would be a conservative majority on the court. This is a big deal and bigger than one midterm election.

"Done then again she's not exactly making a bipartisan appeal there after taking on terrorists and combat the liberals in the Senate won't scare me one, bit at a time when congress as polarized as ever trying to tell voters you'll reach across the, aisle just may not be a winning strategy whether you're a man, or a woman Danielle Kurt Slaven NPR news And you're listening to all. Things, considered from, NPR news All right let's turn to another story about women. Trying to find their place in a male dominated profession a Japanese medical school has admitted to systematically rigging its entrance exam to hurt women candidates an internal investigation into Tokyo Medical University found that the school had. Been lowering women's test scores for at least a decade it should be noted that some men. Were given bonus points in order to boost their scores the schools officials have since publicly apologized and the scandal has caused outrage throughout the. Country, bringing to light Japan's deep problem with gender discrimination Elaine, Lee's from Reuters has been covering. The. Story in Tokyo and she joins us now welcome Hello so what originally was the university's rationale. For docking scores of women and boosting scores of men the idea was that women would quits, early on in their careers as doctors and to have Children to raise their families and they were worried that this would lead to a shortage of. Doctors, at the university hospital that was the assumption that was, made and they followed it since. Two. Thousand and six apparently and it was prompted by a jump in women doing well and passing. The exams year before so they decided they would keep the number of women around thirty percent And when news of this investigation broke did people even seem surprised. By in Japan I mean what what has been the reaction. In, country kind of the overarching reaction was fairly calm but women were furious and there was. A hashtag campaign on social media saying it is. Okay to the angry at sexism and women wrote in sharing their own stories, not just in the. Medical field but throughout their, lives throughout their job hunts and throughout their experience and that was really something and that's what kind of story oh they were this one woman. Said that she had fought her parents to go into academia they said academia has not a. Place for women she got into the best university in Japan than when she was job hunting. People said to her if you were a man we were hired immediately And her comment was wow I thought my only enemies my parents but it was all. Of society now Japan is one of the biggest. Economies in the world but do you have a sense of how it ranks, in terms of women, being represented in elite professions, or in senior positions It is very very. Very, low and prime minister AVI when he came to power he. Said that improving the, gender-balanced. Was one of his goals, he said, he wanted to make Japan a. Society, where women can shine and wanted women to be in, thirty percent of the country's leadership positions by twenty twenty right well that does not seem to be advancing appreciably at this point What, has this government said about this particular. Case of gender discrimination by the med. School well obey, himself, has not commented on this directly as far as I know, but there were reports today that the education ministry is going. To look into the entrance exams for all of Japan's medical schools so we'll see where that goes to see if scores have been doctored I assume Elaine Lee's have. Reuters, joins us from Tokyo thank you very much and thank you.

The government, employs the doctors themselves. The most prominent champion of Medicare for all is Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders but while Sanders, considers himself a.

Championed the idea of eliminating the US immigration and customs enforcement agency and some. Democratic lawmakers have picked.

That socialist caused the shift among Democrats, maybe that's actually a really important distinction there's a progressive wing of the. Party that I think is having an.

"The actual figure could go as high as nine thousand dollars per household but there are other economists with other estimates and in fact until very recently the treasury department's website including a paper saying the corporation's really don't pass all that much of their tax bill onto their workers at least not as much as this white house says they do and incidentally that paper recently disappeared from the treasury department's website well can a corporate tax cut end up helping average workers yes absolutely that's not a stretch but the question is how much i mean luck even some rightleaning economists would argue that the white houses being overly optimistic in its math year one critique they have is about fiscal discipline attacks cut the growth deficit in a big way as this plan very well might could eventually hurt overall economic growth and of course there's some criticism from the left some economists there so you know look if you really want to give working class people more money just give them a tax cut instead of hoping and assuming the corporations will pass you know more money on to workers and by the way we don't know exactly yet who would pay what rate under a new gop plan but the important thing to remember here is that were only talking right now about the corporate part of the tax overhaul that's what this four thousand dollar figure refers to whatever congress ends up doing is gonna be broader than that it's gonna be about individual rates deductions that sort of thing and it seems like even when we do have a specific plan from congress the answer to this question will the four thousand dollar raise be real won't be until the bill ultimately passes if it passes absolutely and it will take some time is not going to happen immediately these things take tend to work into the system that's npr's danielle kurt slaven thanks a lot i know yes thank you.
