I appreciate everyone staying home to not only slow the pressure on our healthcare system but also protect those of us who are more vulnerable. I am one of them, but if we do not get the economy going again we will have a long-lasting recession if not depression. It could be bigger than the BIG one and we are much less able to withstand that than before.
In rural America we might be able to weather it better, but imagine you are in a city where many do not even know how their food chain operates or how corn gets to their grocery store. Shut that off and panic will ensue and you can bet it will spill out of the city to rural America. We won't be dealing with Bonnie & Clyde who thought it was fun robbing and killing. We will be dealing with desperate, starving people who will do whatever it takes to survive.
We need to use the same urgency in getting the economy going again, as we did trying to slow down the virus. The secondary result could result in many more preventable deaths. We more vulnerable folks health-wise need to hunker down and continue with the social distancing but America needs to get up and running, NOW!
We also don't need partisan bickering. No adding "pork" to bills that need to get passed NOW!
