tv   Craig Melvin Reports  MSNBC  July 26, 2021 8:00am-9:00am PDT

8:00 am
on twitter and we will see you back here for special coverage of that second committee hearing. good monday morning, i'm jose diaz-byart. the count down is on for the long awaited first hearing of the house select committee investigating the january 6th insurrection. the bipartisan lineup is set. we learned that liz cheney will deliver one of the opening statements tomorrow. we're also keeping a close eye on the white house. president biden and vice president harris are set to make the anniversary of the american with disabilities act. a law that the president cosponsored when he was still in the senate. we'll take you there live to the
8:01 am
white house to hear from the president once he begins speaking. but we start with the latest surge in new covid cases. we start to see mask mandates slowly rise. 36 states have seen triple digit cases. in nebraska they have spiked nearly 800%. shaquille brewster is in new york city where the mask mandate is in order. thank you to both of my guests for being with me. in the last 30 minutes or so the st. louis mayor spoke about the new mask restrictions. that region made up 20% of the state's new infections least week. what are you hearing? >> yeah, that press conference
8:02 am
wrapping up in the last few minutes. they are explaining this decision to reimpose the mask mandate. you heard them explain is as the delta variant throwing them a curve ball saying the numbers are simply too high to ignore. you also heard them frame this mask mandate as a stopgap measure to help get to the point, to bridge the gap, to the point in which the vaccination numbers are ticking up a big. not enough they say until they're at a level to really help stop the spread. they also said there was politics at play in terms of the opposition that we're already seeing to this mask mandate. opposition from the state attorney general that will file a lawsuit as soon as today. you heard the mayor had strong words against the attorney general there saying this is about politics saying he is running for state senator.
8:03 am
listen to what she said. >> even if you're not concerned for yourself, think about the people in your life and in our region who need to be protected from this virus. vaccine help keep us safe. healthy, and out of the icu. masks help stop the spread of disease. >> now we're also hearing opposition from the county council. he said this is not about politics, but about the county executive not having the authority to enact this mask mandate. he say there will like i will be a mandate to terminate this. you heard them join the calls to get vaccinated.
8:04 am
that is a call for everyone to get vaccinated. as of now, that is for local grocery stores and they're going to encourage and mandate masks. right now they're required at indoor locations, not restaurants or bars, outdoor locations, strongly encouraged. >> so with a spike of these new covid cases, is it a matter of the delta variant or is it that people are not vaccinated? >> it's a combination of the two we know the delta variant targets them. they are largely unvaccinated populations. you talk to the doctors in those
8:05 am
hospitals. our affiliate crunched some numbers and compared the number of hospitalizations and the number of people in icu. the number of people from a year ago. and they are currently more than doubt what they were a year ago. the idea is that more people get vaccinated, and you heard the country executive today in the last few minutes say that mask puts an extra barrier between the vaccinated and unvaccinated and it is caused by the covid variant. >> they said sunday that they're considering recommending that vaccinated americans put their masks back on, but it was tough to convince everyone to wear a
8:06 am
mask. how should the nation's top doctors make the case? >> good morning it is good to see you. they said that we're moving in the wrong direction. 34 states are seeing a spike in covid infections. missouri as well as texas and florida that is nearly half of infections from the three states, but really it is all going in the wrong direction. i'm going to quote yogi berra. this is deja vu. a year ago they were talking about the important mask. we're medically and technically
8:07 am
in a better position, and now we have the first line management that is vaccines. we have multiple highly effective vaccines that can prevent severe hospitalization, illness, and death. masks are a great measure, but they're a stopgap measure. the l.a. time asked people why did you wait until now to get the vaccine. one woman thought i'm tired of being scared and wondering if it is covid or not. i might as well just get covid. another said she was waiting to see how other people reacted before getting her shot. she said she recently watched a
8:08 am
man on spanish tv talk about how he waited to get vaccinated but he got sick. that, she said, motivated me, i didn't want to keep thinking about it. someone else said it was their pastor that convinced them. so is this the best way to convince people to get their dose. >> this is public health 101. this is exactly what needs to happen. that l.a. times article really resonated with me. once a week awork in the bronco where i treat opioid addiction, but i'm helping some of the most vulnerable individuals in the country and i say by the way did you get your covid vaccine. i said no, i heard because i already had it that i don't need it, or that it makes me sicker. just laiden with misinformation,
8:09 am
but when you talk to them one on one and say no, this is how the vaccine works, this is what is happening and we all need to get it. i tell them my story. i tell them why i got one. why i got my elderly mom and dad vaccinated, that's how you gain trust. you listen to their concerns and you address them head on in a way that is rooted in science and data. i also think that we need really deally public health messaging from our highest authorities. every day, here in new york city, we have the officials talking every single day. i think that really makes a difference in engaging and getting the trust up of people. >> one thing can guarantee the
8:10 am
vaccine, and that is that it will save your life. protests in cuba are taking their message to florida. they came from different parts of the country. protests in cuba exploded earlier this month when they demanded freedom. the end of the country's 62 year dictatorship. we are with that caravan going to dc. paint the picture for us. what's going on there outside of the white house? >> hello, good morning. . behind me and in front of the white house, hundreds of cubans and the number is expected to
8:11 am
grow. they want to be heard by president biden. they are dealing with what happened weeks ago. some of these right here, they slept in the lafayette park. let's talk to one of them. thank you for being here today. what is the message you have? >> we're here asking for the president to help us because we have in cuba a difficult situation. we have all of the people asking for freedom for the first time in 62 years. they cannot end the dictatorship by themselves. >> they have done enough? >> not yet. he is in the right direction now because he changed from remittances to sanctions. the people repressing our people. so that is a good direction, but
8:12 am
we need an intervention, a humanitarian intervention. the cia or a political regime. >> thank you for that. that is what they're asking. later on some cuban american congressmen will be here supporting the crowd. they will march into the late evening just like they did some days ago. what they say is the cubans will remain in the streets. back to you, jose. >> thank you very much, as you know the government is 62 years old. now many say they're taking that date back and reappropriate rating that meaning, how? >> that's right, the 26th of
8:13 am
july is seen as the equivalent of the first shot on fort sumpter. but what is interesting is the cuban american community said they want to reappropriate in meeting. and they are asking, as you saw, they're asking for the biden administration to help with that change. what that change looks like is up with of the most complicated questions. many differ on what more intervention looks like. the protests in cuba, two weeks ago as you know, is clearly in opposition to the dictatorship there. many are showing up to show support for those protesting in cuba. some are calling for humanitarian intervention to address the shorltageing of
8:14 am
food, supply, and vaccines. others want to go as far as intervention. so the slogan was that the cuban revolution started 68 years ago and today we call for it's end. so even does agree they will keep fighting for change until everyone has their homeland as well as their lives. >> so as you heard, that is a gentleman that came to the states and fled the cuban regime four months ago. he is saying the u.s. i'm bar go is not the issue that the cuban government alleged that it is for decades.
8:15 am
there are short amgs, there is lack of access to goods. and so much reporting has been done through friends and family and through social media. videos like that that cubans are posting and sending to us that have strong internet here in america and they're saying this is what we need help with. we need your intervepgs. we need you to come to us and provide and make it easier for us to implement the changes here on the ground. >> morgan, it is amazing to think that the castro regime took power in 1959. there was only 48 states in our country. that's how long ago it was. mcjagger was still six years away from writing "satisfaction." and adequate that same
8:16 am
government is still in power today. how do you explain that? how do you explain that it has only billion until 2021 that people have been able to step forward. >> the question is why now. it was not a spontaneous combustion. this was issues that was layers with issues upon issues. the cuban people were too afraid to whisper their quest for freedom. but now the consequences became worth it and why? because of the pandemic. because of the embargo, and everything coming together. they say we were already having difficulty getting things imported. so for example i have a cousin that waits in line, he says only one of us can leave the house and wait for food all day in a line with people who are largely unvaccinated. now for them it is a life or
8:17 am
death issue to get access to the things they need to survive. why the is they wanted freedom, but right now is the pandemic. the shortage of resources that created a really untenable situation. and people who spent decades in prison in cuba. there has always been people standing up and asking for freedom. now is different. good to see you both, thank you very much for being with me. >> any moment now we're expecting to hear from president biden and vice president harris. you see the podium there inside of the white house. by the way, you know, he was a cosponsor of that bill when he was a senator. the landmark law prohibits discrimination against any
8:18 am
disabled american in all areas of public life. including jobs and transportation and anyone space up to the general public. according to the cdc one in four adults in the u.s. is living with a disability. mike memoli joining us now. we know this is important to the president, what can we expect to hear from him? >> it is critical for the president for his infrastructure package. why is he spending this time today on this finish. it was, of course, one of the pieces of legislation that the president is very proud of. he signed it, he cosponsored it, but you're going to expect to hear from the president as well. take a listen. >> so sorry to interrupt you. >> this day is indeed a historic
8:19 am
day. on this day the americans with disabilities act was signed into law. on that day america became better. because we know an accessible america is a better america. speaker nancy pelosi, chairman path-- pat leahy and more for being here today. i see so many who helped make the ada real. the activist that's gave everything they had to fight for that bill. the advocates who helped to shape the bill, title by title. the policymakers who worked tirelessly to pass it including, of course, our own president,
8:20 am
joe biden. house majority leader steny hoyer. and congressman cuello. every day in every community lives of the american people are better pause of the work you all did. when people can ride a bus because it has a lift. when they can enter a building because it has a ramp. when they can watch a movie with closed captions. when a student with a disability goes to school instead of discrimination gets support. that is the ada in action. the ada gives all americans the
8:21 am
opportunity to fully participate in our democracy, in our economy, and in our society. the ada gives all americans the opportunity to determine their own future. self determination, which i believe the government must facility. that is the impact of the ada. and after all, the promise of america. at the same time, truth must be told the ada was a a very important beginning, but there is still so much work to be done. both on enforcement and on future legislation. and that is why i'm so hearten heartened to see the generation of leaders
8:22 am
that are here and remain committed to doing this work. earlier this month i met with several leaders of the disability community that are fighting for voting rights. they told me about the obstacles that voters with visible and invisible problems they face. ramps that are unstable. tables too high or too low. complications with voting assistance. the list goes on and on. one leader said vice president, equity cannot be achieved without disability being part of the equation. this is a fight that is a civil rights fight. a human rights fight. this is about equity. and whether or not we're committed to making it equitable
8:23 am
in every way. and as we all know, that truth is not just that, it is also about employment, it is about an education starting with prek. it is about being able to live in your home and participate in your community which is why we also must invest in in home and community based services. so, folks, here is the bottom line. the president and i will continue to fight with you to make america more accessible. the work is important. every person in our country deserves the opportunity to dream with ambition. to have choices, to shape their
8:24 am
own future. free from any obstacle. because this as we know is the very definition of self-determination. and this is the united states of america. so thank you, all, for your courage and your commitment. and now, it is my great honor to introduce a person, a leader, who exemplifies all of that. tyree brown is an artist wholies -- who lives in american and she is focussed on building a america of her own design. i'm thankful for her extraordinary leadership, and i'm pleased that she is here with us today. please welcome tyree brown. >> hello, everyone.
8:25 am
it's a pleasure to be here. all right, my name is tyree brown. i'm a 26-year-old christian artist living in maryland with faith in jesus christ. i was in a car ax that rendered me quadriplegic. art and faith has always been prominent in my life but everything changed after my injury. i could no longer walk or use my dominant right hand. i was sent to a rehab hospital, then to a nursing home, back to rehab only to go back to the nursing home where i stayed another ten months. i was away from my home for over a year. while in the nursing home a program called money follows the person intervened. which the president supports investing more funding in. the waiver program that helps those that choose to be home in their communities by supplying durable medical equipment, home
8:26 am
modifications and oklahoma health care services. a program made possible by the ada. this program made it possible for my mother to become my full-time aid. i want to thank president biden, vice president harris, and the biden administration for being advocates for the disability community. with american jobs plan there is a $400 billion investment in caregiving economy. and is this will directly and positively direct my mother as she is my aide. moving forward my goal is to be able to have affordable accessible housing and to live on my home more independently. i have been on the waiting list
8:27 am
for four years but i hope to move into my own place soon. i'm home with my family and working as a freelance visual artist. i received my degree from the corcoran college from that is across the street from here. i exhibit my work at their next exhibition as well as a raw showcase exhibition. i attend highway deliverance church where i volunteer in reading the bible. i'm also part of a non-profit organization that supports individuals with disabilities like myself. i'm also a newly born member of providence now. the ada pushed for a more inclusive environment for wheelchair users by making more public buildings and more public
8:28 am
transportation wheelchair accessible. the ada pushed for wheelchair ramps, curb cutouts, and accessible places. i was worried i would not be able to live independently and pursue my dreams but now there are programming helping me to achieve my goals. it's thanks to the ada that paved the way for me with the full support of president biden. thank you president biden and vice president harris for advocating for the disability community and celebrating the 31st anniversary of the ada. i'm honored to be here and especially to now introduce president joe biden. >> madame vice president, tyree, you're an inspiration. thank you for sharing your
8:29 am
story. 31 years ago today president george h.w. bush signed the american's with disabilities act. he was sounded by advocates and bipartisan members of the united states congress just as we are today. speaker pelosi, welcome by the way to madame speaker, chairman leahy, leader mccarthy, senator casey, congressman scott, congressman there you are, paul. you understand this better than anybody does. i want to thank you for all of your work and thank you all for being here. second, and where is mom? mom? is she here? >> i don't know where. >> she is watching. i thought you said mom was out there. mom you can't stand up if you're home. but folks, thank you for what
8:30 am
you're doing. the second gentleman is here as well, thank him for being with us as well, and some of the same folks that fought so hard for this landmark decision are with us today. i just got off of the found with a man named tom harkin. but no one worked harder than tony cuello to get this done. dear friends as i side like tom harkin and bob dole. bob is one of passed on his regards. tom is in wisconsin working on ada, doing something up there. and still more with us that are here in spirit like ted kennedy,
8:31 am
major owen, and countless others. i was normally proud to be a cosponsor of the ada. as a member of the united states senate. i'm proud to be here today as president alongside so many other fearless champions. 31 years ago after it's passage, many americans have never lived in a world without the ada. generations have grown up not knowing a time before it existed. we can remember when people were denied service in restaurants and grocery stores. a person with a wheelchair could not ride a train or take a bus. an employer could refuse to hire you because of a disability. then we passed the ada and made
8:32 am
a commitment to build a nation for all of us. all of us. and we moved america closer to fulfilling that promise of libber city and justice and maybe more importantly dignity and equality for all. you know, perhaps most importantly we did it together. this was a democratic bill signed by a republican president. a product of passion and compassion. not partisanship. progress, not political, but personal to millions of families. i will never forget the moment the ada passed. standing on the floor of the united states senate, and tom harken sought recognition. and the first time that i'm aware of, he stood up and he signed in a speech to his brother. he was not just sending a message to millions of deaf and
8:33 am
hard of hearing folks, he was speaking to frank. it was personal to him. it was personal to bob dole as well. he laid out in a hospital for almost three years. his injury listed and they also lasted an entire lifetime. like so many americans, he turned his disability, his limitation into greater purpose and will. he made the rights of disabled americans a lifelong cause. for more than 60 million americans, the ada is so much more than a law. it is a source of opportunity, participation, independent living, and respect and dignity. a path to independence. and for our nation, it is more than a law as well. it is testament to our character as a people. our character as americans.
8:34 am
a triumph of american values. of course this didn't bring an end to the work we need to do. today too many americans still face barriers to freedom and inequality. but it spans all races, briefs, backgrounds, and generations. we're making progress together. my first day in office i was proud to sign an executive order establishing a government wide commitment to advance inequity including people with disabilities. and i was proud. to appoint the first ever white house disability policy director. where are you, ken? where is ken? thank you, ken. and i'm ensuring that dignity and rights of disabled americans are lifted up in every policy we
8:35 am
pursue from continuing to make sure this administration looks like america, pointing people with disabilities to positions across the government. the american rescue plan we're able to include substantial support for schools to better serve students with disabilities. as part of my build back better plan it was mentioned that we proposed $400 billion to home and community based care. helping people with disabilities, and older adults, live more independently. i'm glad that congress is moving on the better care and better care act. championed by bobby casey. that builds on that effort. this past year the entire nation saw just how vital our care givers are and how critical home based care truly is for so many americans. this legislation will help
8:36 am
ensure that caregivers are fairly compensated for their work. there is also discriminatory sub minimum wage that keep people with disabilities from getting fair wages. because of the orders i signed we're working to remove barriers to hold back disabled americans. and we're ensuring that the central government is a model employer when it comes to wages, accommodations, and opportunities to advance people with disabilities. that's a firm commitment. today, finally, i'm proud to announce a new effort. the first of it's kind, to help americans grappling with long covid. many americans that seem to recover from the virus facing lingering challenges like breathing problems, brain fog,
8:37 am
these conditions can sometimes rise to the level of a disability, so we're making sure that americans with long covid that have a disability have access to the rights and resource that's are due under the disability law which includes accommodations in services, workplace, so they can live their lives in dignity and get the help they need. we made important progress and we still have work to do. we have to make sure every american has a chance to contribute their talents, to drive, and success. i know that today's fearless advocates, are going to accomplish inscheduleble things. people like mr. tudel.
8:38 am
thank you for your continued efforts. a long time before the foundation for progress is strong though. it is part of the moral bedrock of our foundation and something that every prern should be proud of. now it's my honor to share. i want to thank you all, may god bless you, and all of you dealing with disabilities. you're an inspiration to all of us and i really mean it. now i'm going to walk over and sign this. and nancy, come on up.
8:39 am
steny, pat, you were there at the time? get your rear end up here. the leader is taking his camera. because pat would rather use his camera, i think, than anything else. >> come on, tony, you get right in the back here. >> the president calling out some of the folks that worked on this disabilities act so many years ago as he signs an executive order on this. mike, it's worth mentioning that house minority leader kevin mccarthy is there. a very rare bipartisan moment in dc. >> that is a message around this
8:40 am
event. it is explicit. what the president is making the point here through the anniversary of the americans with disability act, is the way in which government can work in a bipartisan fashion to really improve the lives of ordinary americans and in fact i was listening to something he said friday evening when he held his first campaign event on behalf of a candidate for governor. he said democrats need to breakthrough the republican fog that government is part of the problem when government is the solution to many problems. this is really a foundational approach with which this president is taking office that is to approach his duties in a way that demonstrates how they can help americans and their everiy day lives.
8:41 am
it was a perfect way to describe that, but he also pivoted to his human infrastructure. the things that he proposed as part of this legislation. it is part of what president is trying to sell here. an important part of an event that was more about the bill that he was celebrating from 31 years ago. >> americans with disability act was so important and meaningful. thank you, mike, for being with us. >> coming up tomorrow, the hearing of the january 6th select committee. one of them is taking on a more prominent role, next. first, the mark that congresswoman chaney is making. bill deblasio just announced that by september 15th the entire city workforce will need
8:42 am
to be vaccinated or have weekly testing. a huge change in their approach to the coronavirus pandemic. we'll be right back. we'll be right back. and here. which is why the scientific expertise that helps operating rooms stay clean now helps the places you go too. look for the ecolab science certified seal.
8:43 am
8:44 am
in about 22 hours from now, the first meeting for the bipartisan house select committee for the january 6th investigation will be starting. leann caldwell is joining us leann, let me start with you. we got details on how the hearing will go. the committee chair will give an opening statement along with liz
8:45 am
cheney, what does that tell us? >> she will have an extremely prominent role in the process. she has not been named the ranking republican member of the committee, but the fact that she is giving an opening statement is significant. and it shows the democrats have a lot of trust in her. and that is what we have been reporting in the past few days. democrats on the committee have been thoroughly impressed with her work ethic, her preparation, and what they say is her commitment to finding the truth. now republican, it's not -- cheney is not a democrat. they disagree on almost everything regarding policy except for what happening on january 6th and except for the former president saying the election was stolen. which cheney along with democrats say that is in fact a lie. so this is all coming together,
8:46 am
just one day before the first hearing of the select committee where we're going to hear from capitol police officers and dc metropolitan police officers who are on the front lines. and it is the first time they will officially hear from the members, jose? >> democrats on the committee sound positive. other republicans not so much. mccarthy said kinzinger was self appointment. are you encouraged to see some of this? looks like the republicans are not on board at all. >> i want to underscore something that leigh anne said. these are not central moderates. they have reputations in both parties. some republicans will attack them now, but the truth is a lot of the republicans that did vote to certify the election result
8:47 am
earlier this year are happy to see adam kinzinger and liz cheney on the committee. some 35 republicans voted to establish a january 6th commission. so even though some republican leaders and other obviously rank and file republicans are attacking them, there are a decent amount of republicans that are glad that they will be on the committee. they are holding democrats honest. making sure this is not a part an exercise. this is too important to make this a partisan exercise. we have to get down to what happened and we should do it in a bipartisan manner. >> i'm just wondering who. i have not heard ewe don't really hear republicans speak out to say "this is great. it has been like this deathly silence from republicans on this. >> republicans these days say
8:48 am
something privately that they wouldn't say publicly. especially those that don't agree with donald trump that want to make sure that he and everyone else responsible for the 6th of january are heldble and that we learn lesson sos this never happens again. the rule of law was at risk that day. there are republicans that won't say it loudly and proudly, but they are happy to see their colleagues on this committee. >> is this going to cost congressman kinzinger in his party to take this bold step. >> it could, but they have been clear they do not care about
8:49 am
their political future. we know that representative cheney has half a dozen primary challengers lining up against her to beat her, the same is likely with representative kinzinger. there is threats from leader mccarthy to try to remove them from their committees. leader mccarthy was just outside of the white house and some reporters caught up with him. he was asked about that and he didn't give a definitive ans, he just said we'll see. so there is two things to look at. how they will be received, and out in their home districts, jose. >> leigh ann and carlos, thank you for joining us today. we're still losing hundreds of lives a week from covid, and the pandemic has accelerated the opioid crisis. the cdc says we saw the most
8:50 am
every recorded overdose deaths last year. more than 93,000. the combination of overdose deaths and losses due to covid lead the u.s. to the largest drop in life expectancy since world war ii. so now officials are sounding the alarm. i want to bring in former congressman from california, mary bono. part of a campaign launching today called reverse the silence. why do you think we've seen such an increase in drug overdoses during this last year? >> josé, it's so great to see you and be with you. you know, the pandemic, the covid pandemic really exacerbated the opioid epidemic. the numbers have increased because by and large the substance use disorder comes from what we call a disease of despair, and covid-19 certainly has created a lot of despair in
8:51 am
our country, stress has gone up, people are forced to deal with so many crazy situations. so those numbers have really gone up and we're here today to do everything we can to raise the awareness and bring these numbers down. 93,000 american lives lost is just not acceptable. >> i agree. by the way, i just want to say, a big fan of yours. why do you think this project to help build awareness about the opioid epidemic is so important to you personally? >> it's important to me personally because i was one of those people that was suffering in silence and i was one of those people that overdosed because of opioids and i was somebody that thought going the route of opioids was going to give me the peace and calm in my life i was looking for and help me escape all the problems i was facing, but it really didn't. it was really just delaying all
8:52 am
the problems in my life until i was ready to face them head-on, and it took my experience for me to want to change and have an open mind toward rehab, treatment and just allowing people into my life. >> how can this campaign help? what can we all do? what could we all do to help? >> well, this is one disease that, believe it or not, talking about it is a huge help. darren is agreeing with me, talking about it, and so often people suffer in silence. they don't come out, they don't talk to people about it. it's what darren is talking all about. right now we're talking about access to an overdose reversal drug, so if you happen to witness somebody, whether it's a family member, neighbor or somebody in the community, you actually have the opportunity to save and life and reverse an
8:53 am
overdose. right now it's scary in america that people are finding fentanyl in pills, kids are getting pills over the internet. these pills are oftentimes laced with fentanyl, which is deadly. this could happen to anybody in america. nobody is immune. it happened in my family. i've got a very long personal journey with this and i couldn't be more proud of the work that i'm doing with danner. we have a website called >> darren, reading today, the largest drop in life expectancy since world war ii in our country, and there is no doubt that the opioid crisis contributes to that. our communities, the latino communities, african-american
8:54 am
communities have been overwhelmingly affected by this crisis. darren, what message do you have to our people, people who may be struggling with addiction, who may not see any light at the end of a very dark tunnel? >> my advice would be, just because using opioids in the current moment may feel good and it may provide some temporary relief, in the long term it's doing more damage than it is repairing or healing. it's going to damage our relationships, it's going to damage our career opportunities. it put my career on death bed. i was completely isolated from all the people that cared about me and wanted to have a relationship with me in my life, all because i thought that drugs and opioids were the answer. really, they're not. the answers are within ourselves, if we look deep and far down enough to our childhoods, and pasts, things that have traumatized us or hurt us. if we look to those and put the
8:55 am
drugs to the side, that's when we can really find true healing. >> and congresswoman, we're putting up the web page there, i think it's important to wrap it up with, this is a problem that affects all of us, not just some, all of us. >> absolutely. i don't know that there are too many american families whose lives haven't been touched by this any longer. and maybe it's not in your immediate family, but it's cousins, it's distant family, it's neighbors. and it really is time that we tackle this head-on. it's long overdue. josé, congress is working hard. they're together on this t. i'm proud of the work they're doing. but it's also time that we come together in our communities ourselves and arm ourselves with what we can do to prevent overdoses. again, it is one of those steps. so thank you for putting up our
