6:32 pm
>> good evening. i tell you, sometimes the numbers tell the story better than anything anyone can say. it took 99 days for a million case for the second million. took, what? 25 days for the third. 14 or 15 for the fourth? you know what? in the last four days we have had a third of a million. and so if you pace that out it will probably take about 12 days to get to 5 million. what does that tell you? it tells you that it's not working. this thing is out of control and governments are not doing the job they need to do. >> yeah. those numbers are scary. so why have states across the country stuck with this failed approach? >> a couple of reasons. the president offloaded it. itsds it's up to you, you guys manage this, so they would be the fall guy if anything went wrong. they have been in some respects but not their fault. the states just don't have the ability to do this, janelle.
6:33 pm
they don't have the ability for several reasons. to begin with, they have different policies. one state, within states, even in california the policies are not uniform. also means that people go back and forth. you know? from good states to bad states, goods parts to states to bad parts of states. they don't have the money. and they compete with each other to buy things like gowns and masks and whatnot. you put it altogether and states are having a hard time doing what they have to do and the country is the worse off for it. >> san mateo county, only one not on the watch list in the bay area and somebody go to get their hair cut across county lines. >> absolutely, absolutely. what happens, the folks where things are not so good infect folks where things are good and then those folks go to where it's not good. it is not good and cycling.
6:34 pm
like whack-a-mole. >> right. so what would be different? what about a national plan? everybody following the same rules. >> if you look to europe, the european union, that's what they did. the national countries, the national governments managed the breakouts, the outbreaks i should say, and the disease went away fairly quickly to a bare minimum. if president trump or whoever was president took control several things would happen. first of all, the president could say we will have a same rules for everybody, the same standards for everybody. not guidelines. rules to follow. and then the governors could enforce those same rules. everything is the same. another thing that would happen out of this. the president would have the ability to use what's known as a defense production act. this is a powerful piece of legislation to be used a time of crisis where the president says company a, you manufacture for me 10 million masks, i need them
6:35 pm
immediately. get the equipment you need. you will get it done. we'll pay for it. they have no choice. they get it done. that is done in a war and this is a war as president trump said. another thing to realize is the national government has deep pockets. states are limited. they can't borrow against the future sort to speak. go into debt. the national government. nobody wants to go into deficits but that is -- >> well -- >> clearly if the national government was in control, this disease would probably have a much better chance of going away a lot faster. >> okay. we have to see what the nation does, what governors do. if they get on the same page with the president but of course besides the health implications, this is a political year so a lot of decisions based on that so we have to see what happens. larry gerston, thank you for joining us. in washington, a day long tribute to late represent john
