How many Congresspeople are over 60? How about the SCOTUS? A lot of them are at risk right now. Paul also has been in contact with a lot of people in the last few weeks.

Being a 1% pays off. Even Harvey Weinstein got a test - in jail!

Granted, it would be good to keep him alive so he rots in prison.

A WhiteHouse economic person (Kudlow?) said there will be a blood-bath on Wall Street very early this week, if Congress can't get the package out the door.
a reply to: carewemust

The blood-bath is ongoing, and this package won't change that. Maybe around Dow 14000 or 15000, but we still got a ways to drop.

It was a big Trillion dollar tax break bubble that purchased all those stocks, not some uber stoked economy created by a genius president.

Reality hurts.

I do believe there are evil people gleefully rubbing their hands together, to buy up the wreckage of our lives.

We, on the other hand, have been pretty proactive. We cut travel from China and other affected areas well before almost anyone else was doing that, slowing the spread here.
a reply to: face23785

Sigh. How quickly some let me help you with a little history.


January 22: Trump on Coronavirus “We have it totally under control”!

January 24: Trump on Coronavirus “It will all work out well”!

January 30: Trump on Coronavirus “We have it very well under control, and I think its going to have a very good ending. So that I can assure you”!

February 2: Trump on Coronavirus “Well, we pretty much shut it down coming in from China, but we did shut it down!” No clue whatsoever of the severity of what’s coming.

February 10: On Fox News Trump says without evidence that the coronavirus "dies with the hotter weather” "You know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat

February 24: Trump tweeted another baselessly claims: "The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA.”

February 25: Trump falsely claims : you may ask about the coronavirus, which is very well under control in our country. We have very few people with it, and the people that have it are … getting better. They’re ALL getting better! Obviously he doesn’t care for those who died from it. (Like captured soldiers)

February 26: Trump wrongly says the coronavirus "is a flu"

February 26: Trump baselessly predicts the number of US cases is "going very substantially down" to "close to zero”

February 26: Trump wrongly says the flu death rate is "much higher" than Dr. Sanjay Gupta said. Coronavirus has 10X death rate compared to flu. If 60K die from flu then 600K will die from Coronavirus!

February 27: Trump baselessly said: "It's going to disappear. One day -- it's like a miracle -- it will disappear.

February 28: Trump said at a rally: Coronavirus is a democratic” Hoax”. No, it was a warning he did not listen to as usual. It’s always all about him.

March 2: Trump falsely claims "nobody knew" the number of US flu deaths, nope he’s the only one that doesn’t know as usual.

March 2: Trump says a vaccine is coming "relatively soon” Trump did not mention that CDC had told him earlier that day that a vaccine was "a year to a year and a half" away.

March 5: Trump wrongly claims the virus only hit the US "three weeks ago” Trump was informed of a confirmed case on January 21(6 weeks prior). He lied.

March 5: World Health Organization (WHO) based on data collected around the world stated the global mortality rate for coronavirus at 3.4%. Trump says :”I think the 3.4 % is really a false number, this is just my “Hunch”! (Hunch over Facts in Trumps world)

March 6: As the number of cases and deaths in Italy rises, Trump says
“I hear the numbers getting much better in Italy” Another Lie.

March 6: Trump falsely claims anybody can get tested if they want.That wasn't true. There were an insufficient number of tests available, as Pence said the day prior, and Americans could not get tested simply because they wanted to get tested. "You may not get a test unless a doctor or public health official prescribes a test,"

March 6: Trump baselessly muses that "maybe" the coronavirus improved US jobs numbers, Trump never thinks in terms of people and families losing lives… just numbers to boost his ego.

March 11: Trump TV speech wrongly states Insurance companies will pay for patients Coronavirus treatment. Next day Insurance Coalition corrected Trump and said they will pay ONLY for Co-payments ,NOT Treatment. Big Difference!

March 11: Trump TV speech wrongly states his Travel Ban to Europe will “apply to the tremendous amount of trade and large”. Next day white House Officials corrected Trump misinformation and said” Travel ban will NOT include trade!”. Trumps can’t even read a Teleprompter correctly.

March 11: Trump’s Ban to Europe does NOT include Britain and Scotland, were there are more confirmed coronavirus cases than in some European countries.
Trump owns Golf Resorts in Britain and Scotland, I’m sure that’s just a coincidence.

May 2018 : In May 2018, the top White House official in charge of the U.S. response to pandemics left the administration.

And the Presidents admin cut the budget for the CDC. It's been 100% REact by this admin.

Nice copy and paste.

First of all, CDC's budget was not cut. You were lied to.

Second, even Washington Post flagged Joe Biden for misleadingly telling people the White House gutted the pandemic response team. The responsibilities were simply shifted from one place to another. It was part of a wider effort to cut the size of the NSC, which had ballooned to absurd proportions under Bush and Obama.

Finally, none of the stuff you copied and pasted refutes what I said. We were proactive. We instituted travel restrictions before other countries did, and it is undisputed that that helped us. No off-the-cuff comments from Trump change the actions that were taken.

Try again. And find new sources. Wherever you get your news from lies to you constantly.

Amy Klobuchar's husband has tested positive for COVID 19, and is in the hospital, on a ventilator with pneumonia.

I saw he was positive but missed he was intubated. That unfortunate and a headline we may have to get used too in the coming weeks

Fred the article says he is on oxygen but not ventilated.
I’m assuming that is just the over the face oxy mask?

Shouldn't Senator Paul be recovered by now? Tom Hanks contracted CV-19 at about the same time, and he's fully recovered.
