As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, major companies are looking to ramp up their workforces to meet the demand for critical products such as food, household essentials and medical supplies.
Pay roll tax cut as requested by the President
increased unemployment for hospital workers misplaced due to virus(quarantined)
Loans for small and large businesses who keep their employees
forgo the 1k checks and provide testing for American citizens who request one;symptoms or no symptoms. We’d just as soon NOT bankrupt the country;we would definitely like to have some idea of who is infected and who isn’t. We’re probably not doing much shopping at this point so a 1k check isn’t going to help a business we can’t patronize anyway.
You see,they’ve cancelled some of my husband’s Dr appointments. The Dr isn’t willing to chance being infected. He doesn’t know if we’re infected. We don’t know if he’s infected. We don’t know if the other people who came into his office were infected. You can’t blame the Dr. We had to drop our in home service of health attendants. We didn’t dare chance it. As much as we need their help we hate to think we could infect them. A test would answer that question. A 100.00 test would run up millions in the general population. It wouldn’t run up TRILLIONS like the bill Congress is passing.
They hate to think they could infect us. We’re caught up in this uncertainty and not sure what the best decision is. Peace of mind is worth more to us than a check.
The post office? We’re supporting the post office? I thought it was already subsidized by the Federal government.
Amtrak-how about we privatize rail? I guarantee it would be managed better.
Help the hospitals,nurses,doctors,nursing homes,hospice/health care attendants.Put funds into much needed equipment,masks,ventilators etc. Put funds into research for a vaccine, treatments and drugs.This would have more to do with the virus than sending the general population a check they can’t spend.
We can’t keep running up these debts. Wait till we hit a crisis worse than this one and we no longer have the funds when we REALLY need them.
ABSOLUTELY NO PORK. NO PAY RAISES FOR CONGRESS. NO FUNDING FOR OUR PET PROJECTS IE KENNEDY CENTER,PBS,NPR.
Stop the extortion. The only way we get bills passed is to give Congressional members their goodies? How about we cut off their pay? We could save plenty. All they’ve done is try to impeach the President and investigate him every other week. We paid for it.
This bill sucks like every other bill they pass. They get paid for writing bills that suck? They’re lawyers? Would you hire them?

I’m done with this Wuhan Flu scare. I’m going shopping tomorrow.
I want to get back to focusing on jailing Comey, McCabe, Clinton, Jarrett, Rice, Yates, Ohr, Powers, and the rest of those slimy bastards.
No more hiding from a stinking bug.
Let’s bring down the real viruses.

Comey,McCabe,Clinton,Jarret,Rice,Yates et al are proof we have a 2 tier justice system.
I’m no longer holding my breathe that they will ever be held accountable. We’ll see.
As for the Wuhan Virus(it’s not an influenza)here’s where I am as we near the 15 day mark:
My husband and i are in self isolation.We’re not quarantined. Neither of us have symptoms or been tested for the virus but we had to take the steps the President’s task force put out.
We’re in that vulnerable age group PLUS my husband has a very serious heart condition. We don’t dare chance it. Besides he JUST got through spending nearly 4 months in the hospital and part of that in a nursing home.
It’s a long story-so I’ll spare you- but he survived quite an ordeal where bacteria basically destroyed his mitral valve to the point it now needs replaced.
It’s not the only thing that happened to him but that’s enough. I don’t know how he survived;we’re not about to chance him being taken down by a virus out of China.
As for your decision to go out and do some shopping;the truth is you’re a free American adult who can decide for himself what’s best for your situation. We’re not in the same boat.
I can’t criticize you for deciding that it’s safe enough. It might be for you.I hate how the media is hyping up the fear and panic. On the other hand it is a very infectious virus that can be incredibly lethal. There is no vaccine and no cure. You get it there’s only 1 of 2 ways to go.
You get mild symptoms or in other cases suffer horribly, quarantined in ICU with little to no hope of recovery.If you do catch it you could be one of the fortunate ones with mild or no symptoms;the problem is you can then pass it along to other people and they may not be so fortunate.As infectious viruses go they pass it onto people they’ve had contact with. It’s why it’s become a pandemic.
I wouldn’t be fearful but i definitely wouldn’t throw all caution to the wind either. Most of us don’t know anyone who has the virus. The ones who don’t have it far outnumber the ones who do have it.
I think from that we can get a false sense of security. I would hate to be the first person to start the ball rolling so I’m SUGGESTING to you pls reconsider your decision and postpone the shopping spree for awhile. Not indefinitely, of course,but at least until the worst has passed. There will be plenty of time to do some shopping and get our lives back to normal again.
It’s something how we went to bed one night with a booming economy,full employment and a historic stock market only to wake up the next day to learn China had let a terrible virus get out of control, kill their own people,
shut down the people who were sending out warnings & finally let this virus be unleashed on an unsuspecting world.
Worse,they LIED about it and even made a useless attempt to try and blame the United States when the world knew it was them. They are a godless COMMUNIST REGIME after all.They will have to be held accountable. They committed genocide without firing a shot.
I wish it were over too and there are days i get tempted to do the same thing you are in spite of the danger to us. I’m tempted to do it just to make a statement that no virus,no communist regime,nothing is going to make me sit in the house and watch life go by like this. I think we ALL realize there’s no way on earth this is a normal way to live and if we defy it maybe we can get some sanity back.
