Jared Kushner up-he's been their boy Friday for the task force group.
He's also been employed as an enforcer to break down barriers and do what's best for the US.

There are some exceptions to these loans. The 60 days delinquent on child support may knock a few out. No one in the sex trades or gambling biz gets a loan. You can't be a lobbyist either (hahaha). I assume they have another package for farmers as they don't fall under this relief package either.

Review and Check All of the Following: Applicant must review and check all the following (If Applicant is unable to check all of the following, Applicant is not an Eligible Entity):

  • Applicant is not engaged in any illegal activity (as defined by Federal guidelines).

  • No principal of the Applicant with a 50 percent or greater ownership interest is more than sixty (60) days delinquent on child support obligations.

  • Applicant is not an agricultural enterprise (e.g., farm), other than an aquaculture enterprise, agricultural cooperative, or nursery.

  • Applicant does not present live performances of a prurient sexual nature or derive directly or indirectly more than de minimis gross revenue through the sale of products or services, or the presentation of any depictions or displays, of a prurient sexual nature. [NO ONE IN THE SEX TRADE]

  • Applicant does not derive more than one-third of gross annual revenue from legal gambling activities.

  • Applicant is not in the business of lobbying.

  • Applicant cannot be a state, local, or municipal government entity and cannot be a member of Congress.

Using defense production act to assure supplies of raw materials.

6 airbridge flights completed. Usually takes 37 days to implement one flight-fill orders, pack ship get to destination.

Teams scouring the globe for PPE-28 air bridge flights scheduled.
Multiple flights in coming few weeks.

How can Biden tell the President ANYTHING about how to do this?

In fact, how can anyone level ANY critique?

This is like the logistics for the taking of Normandy.

Dobbin
I might have misheard, but I swear I heard a smackdown to Biden? Missed part of it, but wasnt the reply that we have done that/been doing that and have had the best person for 13 days now.

ETA: just heard Trump say it was Schumer that was said to.

Commercial supply chain-6-7 different suppliers of equipment, getting fed from commercial sources to federal shipping of product to hospitals.

Using some sort of weapon system software to track parts pallets completed pallets where they're at in delivery chain.
Hell, a fed gov UPS system sped up 3X !

This navy admiral got carte blanche from Pres Trump to do what needs to get done. He has family members working as nurses in the NYC area.

Percentage of cargo flight supplies going to private hospitals -product going to private sector, hospitals buying from distributors.

That's why every state saying buying products like bidding in Ebay. The admiral has left the existing supply and end user chain as is-smart. No need to reinvent what is a very efficient wheel.

A good leader hires top people that can function in their positions with little to no supervision. If they can’t they are replaced quickly
Yep-Pres Trump's business experience clearly shows through too. These guys get the job and do the job. Osama micromanaged-Pres Trump supports his folks and lets them run. First tenet of keeping mid level management in business-let em run, pick em up when they fall, let them blow you away with success.

Logistical admiral is using defense supply categories to get supplies to ventilator manufacturers. Vent makers are D-0 in terms of priority to get supplies. Think that's the highest supply category.

NYC PD sent an SOS to the task force 2 days ago-running low on people because of covid issues, no PPE. Raytheon and Honeywell contacted, Pernod called. NYC PD had 6000 gallons of it shipped within 2 hours, along with hundreds of tyvek suits and gloves and masks.
Love it when a plan comes together.

"Buy American" discussion and the previous sensitivity of the US to foreign interruption.

The SBA program is for companies of 500 employees or less. There are other programs in place for large companies, try treasury dept website for info on those.

Hospitals to be compensated directly for coronavirus treatment of individuals. Insurance might not be needed if we get sick.
Proposal in process. Blue Cross waiving all payments deductables for corona treatment of individuals. Blue Cross folks don't have to pay at all if they get corona!

Mentioning testing positive rates for US.

NY and NJ-35% of tests coming back positive. CA and CO at 8%, DC at 13%.

IL, GA, MI have increasing rates of positives-can see the coming hot spots.......

Bet their GIS man is working his fingers to the bone to get all this data together.

I've been worried that if either me or DH (or both) have to be in hospital for several weeks it could wipe us out financially. I don't see how this could be feasible for the insurance companies, though. They'd go bankrupt.

ETA: Thanks so much for the summary for those who could not watch it.

Your'e welcome!

The administration and the insurance companies are in talks to get some form of help from the .gov for not charging for corona treatment. VP Pence said something could occur in the next few days.
So, the insurance companies probably won't take much of a hit for doing this. They make more than enough profit as it is anyway :)

It's a good move on the administration's part. People wouldn't normally want treatment if financial considerations were in play. This eliminates the worry for the citizen and ensures they will get treatment, and not suffer financial ruin as a result.
That's huge for millions of Americans.

Jared Kushner talking about ventilator distribution/ allocation to the states. Explaining it seriously!!! well.
First I've really heard of him talking. Impressed with his grasp and savvy on the subject. Seems unflappable, knows his subject like an SME in a big way.

Hmmm. Kushner 2032?
