President Donald Trump said at the White House Tuesday he wanted the federal government to send direct payments to Americans suffering economically from the coronavirus as part of a larger rescue package. “We’re going big,” Trump said, adding, “We want to go big, go solid.” The proposal was detailed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday during a press briefing at the White House.“We’re looking at sending checks to Americans immediately,” Mnuchin said, adding,

Well, great! I just sent Uncle Sam my tax money and now they want to send it back to me? What a stupid, knee-jerk idea! Here's a much better solution: Stop the idiotic panic and let people get back to work!

I don’t need or want a government check. I want these communist power mad governors to get a grip and for all these nanny state politicians to leave me alone. No, it is NOT their job to ‘keep me safe’.

I have to say I fear financial ruin for friends and family more than I fear catching the virus. I would normally be against a move like this and it bothers me that I breathed a sigh of relief at this news.. We lost everything we ever owned during the Obama disastrous years. Physically and emotionally I can't go through that again. Before the fall we had more than a years pay in savings along with stocks and a 6 bedroom house ....all gone after four years of litigation. I still get a sick physical reaction when I think of those times. In the last eight years we have clawed our way back and have what's now a very tiny nest egg of about two months pay. I refuse to be dependent on the government for anything. At the worst we never applied for any public assistance. Maybe if we had had young kids at home but for just the two of us...never. It's so easy to be enticed by handouts, but...under these unprecedented circumstances and given the taxes we pay I thank DJT for thinking of us.

I agree ... just tell the truth about this whole idiotic thing, start with a huge gathering at a Trump rally and send all back to work the next day! HOWEVER, the MSM and Dems would go ballistic with that ... so, Trump is just beating them at their own game. Folks will focus on the stimulus, the decisiveness, and the air will go out of the panic. The panic is SO much worse than the disease. The Dems will be left with nothing! They can’t complain about wanting to help the workers. It’s brilliant.

I don't know how I feel about this but all of the criticism? Maybe President Donald Trump is trying to make the best out of this situation. He didn't ask for this; as a matter of fact, he tried to rein it in January. Guess who made the biggest stink? Democrats. Especially Joe Biden calling him xenophobic and hysterical. They were also putting a bill together to stop the travel ban. One of the things that I like about Donald Trump is that he cares about Americans and want to Make America Great Again. What the Democrats and media did with this is irresponsible and I find the criticism just as irresponsible. Boy, is he between a rock and hard place.

Just what I need, some my tax money back, so I can pay tax on it next year. Two thoughts, just give taxpayers a tax credit next year if you're feeling generous, and secondly, when private sector workers lose their jobs for these national emergencies, don't pay the furloughed public sector employees either. It will show citizens how 'FAIR' the government is and everyone can feel the pain equally. Members of Congress need their pay stopped, but since most of them have stolen their way to millionaire status, it probably won't make a difference to them. Almost nothing gripes me more than to hear that mon-essential employees are sent home, and upon return to their non-essential jobs,get their back pay. Unless thre language had changed, non--essential means not necessary. There are enough jobs in the private sector, if they're willing to really work.

This might seem funny to a lot of folks, but here is what is happening in the real world. All of the Dental Offices are closed for at least two weeks on the very strong recommendation of the Dental Assoc in IL. The women in that office (one is my daughter) are hourly workers. Their Boss a fine woman is allowing them to work for a few day this week catching up with things. Then, they will wait until they are able to work again. Most of those women have young children, a mortgage, car payment and groceries to buy. Not getting the paycheck they depend on will be a huge hardship. Some of them are lucky enough to get a "Parental Handout" (mine included). But not everyone has that Bank of Mom to fall back on. So, I am in favor of President Trump's wanting to do this! God knows we throw money to all kinds of Foreign Countries. It's time we take care of our own People!

One more comment. It is an extension of #7 because I have been thinking about it more. There are people who are recovering from the Obama years namely my family. For all of the people criticizing President Trump, maybe you work for the government and didn't have to go through the Obama years in the same manner. I have no idea if you support President Trump or just tolerate him. I do sense that he was pleased as punch that America was recovering even through the Russian collusion, impeachment and whatever. He wants America to be great and is very concerned about our people and families. What would you do? Act like Obama and not give a hoot. Not only that, we find out that the Biden family was profiting big time from other countries while our country was declining. So, yeah, keep complaining about his actions. . .

Handing me $1,000 in cash now but committing me to paying back $5,000 in the future when I want to retire isn't something I would remotely sign up for. I hope nobody is fooled into believing that this won't be another massive wealth redistribution from the makers given to the takers. Here's the deal folks, this thing is deadly but no deadlier than things we have weathered with nary a whimper in the past. The problem, it spreads so fast and even at a relatively low rate driving the need for hospital care it will completely overload the capacity if we all get it at the same time. It is going to run through us they can't stop it but they hope to spread the timeline out. Remember the massive construction project in China?

Like #7, I lost everything I had worked for my entire life during the Obama years. I have been struggling ever since to get even close to recovering from that debacle. The house, the car, the savings, the sterling credit rating, the good job, any shred of confidence, all gone. I fear yet another financial meltdown because I don't have anything in reserve left.

#7 Same here. Lost everything, including my dignity, during the Obola years as a self employed person. So many in this area were self employed and sold everything to keep a roof over their heads. It pained me to see construction guys sell their tools and wife's jewelry and have Mexicans come in and buy it dirt cheap while they work for cash under the table. People sold their silver collections by the 5 gallon bucket full. If $1000 will help people pay their rent or mortgage and keep the lights on, I am for it. Landlords don't take IOU's.

Joe Biden Confusingly Pretends He’s President,

Joe Biden apparently doesn’t know where he is or who he is again. Maybe the loss of his mental faculties is accelerating? Biden recently decided it’d be a great idea to undercut the real administration by having “shadow briefings,” which are basically political ads that run the risk of misleading people and exacerbating the current pandemic. RedState first reported on this possibly happening in a recent article by Nick Arama. In the midst of an actual crisis, where people need a single, knowledgeable source of information, the former VP has decided to pretend he’s president. (Tweet)

The Food and Drug Administration approved a rapid coronavirus test on Saturday that will deliver results in about 45 minutes. The test will be available in the next few weeks and no training will be necessary to administer the tests. Cepheid, a California-based diagnostic testing company, announced on Saturday that the FDA approved the use of its XpertXpress Sars-CoV-2 rapid molecular diagnostic test for the detection of the Chinese coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The test is designed to work on any of the company’s more than 23,000 automated worldwide testing systems.

Math is math.

On March 17th Pennsylvania officially shuttered all Turnpike service plazas in response to coronavirus concerns. However, the decision was ridiculously short-sighted as long-haul and regional Truckers depend on fuel stations, bathrooms and restaurants along the route. Thankfully PA officials realized their error and reopened the service stations yesterday.

Dr Anthony Fauci has been caught smirking at President Donald Trump during a coronavirus press conference, further fueling rumors of tension between the pair. The incident occurred Friday afternoon, while the Commander-in-chief was giving the media an update on the COVID-19 outbreak flanked by members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force team, which includes Dr Fauci. The highly-respected immunologist looked to roll his eyes and suppress laughter as Trump lashed out at the State Department, describing them as the 'Deep State department'. Dr Fauci then placed his hand over his face, in what many described as a 'face palm' reaction to Trump's inflammatory remarks.

Anthony Fauci, M.D., the 79-year old head of the National Institute of Allegy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has become the #1 point man on the government’s role in the coronavirus crisis. Fauci has worked for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) his entire professional life. In the past, for more than two decades starting in the mid-1980s, he was the medical establishment’s face of HIV-AIDS – omnipresent on television when AIDS was hot and ever present at international AIDS conferences well into the 21st century. Always, he was an enthusiastic advocate of throwing more federal money at the problem of AIDS. He's widely praised in the press.

Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. The move covers about half of all home loans in the U.S. — those guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie. But regulators expect that the entire mortgage industry will quickly adopt a similar policy.

Calls are increasing for cable networks to stop airing President Donald Trump’s press conferences live as critics believe Trump is turning White House news briefings into virtual campaign rallies that can “get people killed” with lies about the Coronavirus crisis. The pressure only increased after Trump’s Friday briefing.The Atlantic’s James Fallows believes the attention-starved Trump is turning the press conferences into “virtual campaign” rallies and Trump would actually lose interest in showing up if the media did not cover the briefings live.“Also, as a practical matter, if the briefings were no longer covered live, Trump would lose interest in attending himself,” Fallows argues.
