starting with the jobs report last week, but away expectations but that is one of many reports that have been good, consumer spending very strong, manufacturing has come back, services sector, leisure and hospitality, vacation has come back, we see the economy surprised to the upside time and again and that is why the stock market is so high, the american people seem to be getting back after it faster than thought so that is good news, we are dealing with a lot of coronavirus spiking that so far hasn't seemed to dampen people's desire to get back to work or employer's ability to hire them. the question is will they continue? todd: the nasdaq is up 226, the dow up 2% and the s&p up one.5%. do you really think the stock market is in touch with reality? people worry what the fall will look like, will these kids go

2:35 am
we don't know what is going to happen in the fall. we are seeing people aren't exhibiting the kind of fear in the economy we thought they were, devon better economic outcomes which translated into the nasdaq, the s&p, hitting levels we did not expect at this point. jillian: mitch mcconnell said the next coronavirus bill could include another round of stimulus checks, do you think there should be another stimulus bill? a lot of republicans are concerned about the price tag. >> the price tag matters. we spent $3 trillion of money we don't have. we've got to be careful about this. at this point the key to recovery, forget relief or stimulus and talk about recovery, helping people get back to work. i'm looking for policies that help people do they whether ith is a payroll tax cut that is the cost of hiring or protections for businesses from frivolous lawsuits so they are not stuck in court spending money there. these are the things that could
2:36 am
help, stimulus checks are tricky, last round we send a lot of money to people who needed it, probably a lot of money to people who didn't need it. if we do that this time it has to go to the people who are really in dire straits. we were not able to do that last time but it matters when you spent $3 trillion, you can't keep piling trillions on top of that. >> the debt is something people like to ignore but good to bring it up once in a wild. carley: suspects accused of killing jamal khashoggi, 25 russians linked to the death of lawyer sergey megnitschke, an american resident was killed in 2018 in the saudi consulate in his temple, his remains have ever been found in the saudi government denies involvement. in 2009, he was beaten and left
