WHERE THEY ARE AND HOW MANY HAVE BEEN AFFECTED INTO ALL OF THIS SENATOR KEVIN CRAMER, NORTH DAKOTA REPUBLICAN SENATOR JOINS US RIGHT NOW

SENATOR, YOU WORRIED WHEN YOU HEAR THESE REPORTS, NOT ONLY OF SPIKES OF CASES HERE, BUT ABROAD, THAT THIS IS PROVING YOU KNOW, A NASTY THING TO GET UNDER CONTROL, MAYBE ROUGHER THAN WE THOUGHT? >> WELL, NEIL, MAYBE IT IS, WHAT I WORRY MORE ABOUT IS THE RESPONSE TO IT ALL, THE PANIC IT CREATES, THE FEAR THAT DRIVES PEOPLE’S THINKING TO SUGGEST SOMEHOW WE SHOULD LIVE IN A RISK-FREE WORLD IS SILLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER ALL THE OTHER WAYS THAT PEOPLE CAN GET SICK AND CAN DIE, THE WAY WE, EVEN KEEP TRACK OF NUMBERS IS A BIT I THINK CONFUSING TO A LOT OF THE PUBLIC AT THE END OF THE DAY WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE AS THE PRESIDENT SAID FROM THE VERY BEGINNING THAT THE CURE IS NOT WORSE THAN THE DISEASE THAT IS WHY I WORRY ABOUT AS WE THINK ABOUT AN ECONOMY THAT OPENS UP THAT INCLUDES AND SHOULD INCLUDE SCHOOLS BEING REOPENED NEIL: YOU KNOW, AS THINGS STAND NOW, SENATOR, I KNOW IT’S A MOVING TARGET

EVEN FIGURES I GOT FROM THIS MORNING MIDDLE EAST BE DATED ALREADY BUT 26 STATES NOW ARE IN ALL OR PART DELAYING THE START OF THE IN PERSON SCHOOL YEAR OR JUST GOING ENTIRELY VIRTUAL SOME ARE SPLITTING IT BETWEEN VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON CLASSES BUT, THIS SEEMS TO BE GROWING THEME ARE YOU WORRIED THAT THE RECOVERY ITSELF IS IN JEOPARDY, WHATEVER THE MEDICAL NECESSITY OF THAT? >> WELL, I DO WORRY A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT AGAIN, REGARDLESS OF THE MEDICAL NECESSITY, WHAT YOU KNOW DRIVES REALITY HOW PEOPLE RESPOND IF YOU DON’T HAVE SCHOOLS OPEN, THAT MEANS ONE PARENT PROBABLY WILL HAVE TO STAY HOME OTHERWISE WOULD BE EARNING AN INCOME

IT MEANS THAT SCHOOL SUPPLY DISTRIBUTION AND WHAT NOT WOULD BE HURT THAT IS PART OF OUR ECONOMY OBVIOUSLY ALSO MEANS THAT OUR CHILDREN MAY NOT BE LEARNING AS MUCH AND AS WELL, THAT IS COMPETITIVE ISSUE THIS IS NOT AS YOU SAID EARL EARLY UNIQUE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IT IS GLOBAL

NEIL: WONDER WHAT ABOUT THE STIMULUS MEASURE THAT YOU AND YOUR REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES ARE WORKING ON, IS IT FAIR TO SAY THE $600 A WEEK UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFIT WILL END? IT MIGHT BE LESS BUT CERTAINLY WON’T BE LESS THAN $600? >> IT WILL BE LESS THAN $600 WE CANNOT HAVE ECONOMY REOPEN IF A LARGE YOU WILL NUMBER OF THE WORKFORCE GETTING PAID NOT TO WORK THAT CLEARLY DIDN’T HELP WITH THE RECOVERY TO REOPEN THE BUSINESS YOU NEED NUMBER OF THINGS YOU NEED CAPITAL, YOU NEED MARKET AND YOU NEED WORKFORCE

THAT IS WHY OUR PACKAGE FOCUSES ON THAT AS WELL INCENTING SCHOOLS TO REOPEN IN A SAFE WAY AS WELL AS FOCUSING ON THE HEALTH CARE NEEDS THAT FIGHT THIS VIRUS THAT IS WHY THIS TARGETED APPROACH THAT, ONLY COST A TRILLION DOLLARS AS OPPOSED TO THE LEFT-WING WISH-LIST THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BROUGHT UP THAT COSTS $34 TRILLION NEIL: YOU KNOW, I’M JUST WONDERING IF THERE IS A DELAY IN REOPENINGS, PUSHING THINGS BACK, THOSE SAME PEOPLE GETTING THESE UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS WILL POINT TO YOU, SENATOR, AND SAY, WELL YOU KNOW, WE’RE THE ONES HURTING HERE AND YOU’RE ACTING LIKE THESE DELAYS AREN’T HAPPENING? NOW YOU’RE CUTTING WHAT HAS BEEN A VITAL WAY FOR US TO PAY OUR BILLS AND TO AVOID FORECLOSURES AT A REALLY BAD TIME, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT? >> WELL I THINK THAT YOU KNOW WE LIVE EVERY DAY WITH CERTAIN AMOUNT OF UNCERTAINTY, NEIL, BUT THE GOAL SHOULD STILL BE THE GLORY OF WORK, JOY OF LIVING TO QUOTE NORTH DAKOTA’S FAVORITE PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT WE NEED TO PROTECT PEOPLE WHO CANNOT GET A JOB AND CANNOT WORK IN WHATEVER FIELD THEY’RE WORKING IN BUT AT THE SAME TIME EMPLOYERS HAVE WILLING WORKFORCE AND NOT INCENTED NOT TO WORK

WE SIMPLY CAN’T HAVE EITHER/OR SECOND QUARTER STANCESES, IF KEYNES WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG, TAX EVERYBODY TO DEATH, REDISTRIBUTE THE WEALTH, THAT IS WHAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO DO WE NEED TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE AND THAT INCLUDES REOPENING SCHOOLS IN A SAFE MANNER NEIL: YOU HAVE TO GET A DEAL DONE PRETTY FAST MAYBE BY THE END OF THIS WEEK IS THAT DOABLE

>> WELL I DON’T KNOW THAT IT IS DOABLE BY THE END OF THIS WEEK, NEIL CERTAINLY RIGHT NOW LOOKS LIKE WE’RE A LONG WAYS APART I APPLAUD LEADER McCONNELL COME UP WITH TIGHTENED UP PROPOSAL THE HOUSE LEAVES FOR AUGUST RECESS SEEMS THEY’RE WILLING TO COME BACK THE FOLLOWING WEEK WHEN WE’RE STILL IN AND WRAP SOMETHING UP IF IT IS NECESSARY

AS FAR APART AS WE ARE, ONE THING I NOTICED ABOUT THIS PLACE, WE ALWAYS DO OUR BEST WORK WHEN THERE IS A DEADLINE LOOMING ONLY MAKES SENSE AS LONG AS THE CLOCK IS STILL RUNNING, NEGOTIATORS WILL TRY TO PUT POINTS ON THE BOARD BUT WE’RE ALSO DRIVEN BY DEADLINES, THE FACT THAT THESE, SOME OF THESE BENEFITS DO RUN OUT AND PEOPLE REALLY NEED HELP WE HAVE TO FIND A MODEST APPROACH NEIL: ALL RIGHT ONLY IN THIS DAY AND AGE, SENATOR, $3 TRILLION CONSIDERED
