Hot Topic Pray for New York
NY is epicenter, so residents are leaving the city. Going somewhere else is not flattening the curve, you’re taking it somewhere else. Sara thinks people are sheltering somewhere else as a way of taking control in an environment where they don’t feel any. Sunny talks about NY being the hub of everything, but many are ~from somewhere else. So maybe they’re going to their original home where they have other family. Whoopi says, uh keep in mind, you could be asymptomatic then you spread it somewhere else. Meghan talks about Falwell reopening Liberty University because they’ll pray it away. Talks more about other places not as affected yet, so people go there thinking things are fine but it will catch up. Healthy sense of fear is applicable.
Hot Topic #TrumpLiesAmericansDie
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says a lot of things about the bill. Thanks the health care workers who are working harder than everyone. Two bills, with names Martial Plan for Hospitals and Protecting Our Workers Above Corporations. Bills accomplish these things /summary. 1-more money for hospitals, 2-more money for workers, re/unemployment, length of time, furloughed to keep health care, and 3-corporate oversight and gives props to Elizabeth Warren on this element, list several details, 4-money for small businesses, and 5-money for states and localities. CS says none of this was in the bill GOP put together on Sunday. It’s not everything, but it’s better than it started, and it’s a start. Meghan complained about the back n forth delays. CS explains that Mitch is sh’t. Tells reasons they had to fight back. Sunny asks about provisions to block his family from benefitting from bailout. CS outlines that elected officials will not benefit and it’s written strongly to prevent that. Also says foreign companies won’t get loans (eg cruise lines with flagships of other countries). Sara and CS talk about the differences in this crisis to 911. Uncertainty, isolation, look after and encourage health care workers. Dum dum wants to reopen America for Easter. CS says the advice should come from health care professionals. Plus our economy would be better if we beat it, rather than prolong it.
