    “Proposals to Address Outbreak’s Impact on Economy Must Include
    Paid Sick Leave for Workers, Among Other People-Focused Initiatives.”
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and
    Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer
    released the following joint statement yesterday:
    “We are hoping to work with the administration on a coordinated, government-wide plan to respond to the coronavirus. We are pleased that we passed an emergency response bill on an overwhelming, bipartisan basis that provided a significant increase in resources beyond the administration’s request.
    However, President Trump continues to manufacture needless chaos within his administration and it is hampering the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. In light of reports that the Trump administration is considering new tax cuts for major corporations impacted by the coronavirus, we are demanding that the administration prioritize the health and safety of American workers and their families over corporate interests.”

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer joint statement yesterday:
    “Paid sick leave — workers impacted by quarantine orders or responsible for caring for children impacted by school closures must receive paid sick leave to alleviate the devastating consequences of lost wages;
    Enhanced Unemployment Insurance — we must ensure unemployment insurance benefits are available and sufficient for workers who may lose their jobs from the economic impacts of the epidemic;
    Food security — we must expand SNAP, WIC, school lunch and other initiatives and suspend implementation of any regulations that weaken federal food assistance, in order to ensure vulnerable populations do not lose access to food during this epidemic;”

      “Clear protections for frontline workers — we must have clear standards and sufficient distribution of necessary protective equipment for health care and other workers who are in contact with people who have been exposed or are suffering from the virus as well as the people responsible for cleaning buildings and public facilities;
      Widespread and free coronavirus testing — to control the spread of coronavirus, the administration must ensure that all Americans who need an evaluation are able to access locations for cost-free testing and rapidly increase the unacceptably low daily test processing capacity inside the U.S.;”

    is desperately
    trying to equate COVID-19
    with the flu
    and unlike countries all over the world,
    he is concealing, lying, and covering up critical data t
    that would help us find solutions and stay alive.

    • March 9, 2020 at 12:31 pm

      Senior Live Science writer Rachael Retter:
      “Scientists have studied seasonal flu for decades. So, despite the danger of it,
      we know a lot about flu viruses and what to expect each season.
      In contrast, very little is known about the new coronavirus and the disease it causes,
      dubbed COVID-19, because it’s so new.
      This means COVID-19 is something of a wild card in terms of how far it will spread
      and how many deaths it will cause.”

      I remember repeatedly correcting myself during the 2008 campaign; I had a propensity for saying Obiden…

      BTW, I “knew” it was going to be Biden for VP several days before it was announced. Had been at a meeting at Philly Obama HQ for a meeting; saw Biden’s name with several columns of post-it notes underneath on a wall, above a staffer’s desk. my fellow vets hadn’t noticed, and discounted my observations. A couple of weeks later, at the convention, they stuck to me like glue…

    “Trump Administration to Collect DNA From Immigrants Taken Into Custody.”
    = Potentially hundreds of thousands of people a year, but who’s counting the cost to invade privacy?
    “The Trump administration plans to begin taking DNA samples from migrants crossing the border or held in detention for use in a federal criminal database, a significant expansion of immigration laws that is certain to raise privacy concerns.The new rule, posted by the Justice Department on Friday and set to take effect in April…”
    –First a ‘pilot program’ in the summer followed by an even more intensive DNA sampling program.
    –Who is next…are we tired of being frogs on the slow boil yet?

    “You know, my uncle was a great person. He was at MIT. He taught at MIT for, I think, like a record number of years. He was a great super genius. Dr. John Trump. I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it. Every one of these doctors said, “How do you know so much about this?” Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for President.”

    • March 9, 2020 at 2:15 pm

      Trump said:
      “that everyone who wants to be tested for this virus can get tested, which is not even close to true.
      He called Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington state, who is on the front lines dealing with this epidemic, a “snake.” He made it clear that he wants to cook the numbers so it doesn’t look as if the nation is in the midst of an epidemic. This has been obvious from the outset, but for the president to come out and say it is something else again.” (Salon)

    During the Swine Flu, Stock Markets continued to rise.

    That’s because President Obama’s leadership brought a sense of calm and order throughout the world.

    The DOW is now down 2,000 points and markets are crashing because trump brings chaos, stupidity and uncertainty.

And none of them are endorsing Bernie, and not because they hate him or that he thinks that they are a part of the establishment, no. They aren’t endorsing Bernie, because they know Bernie.

    Trump would like to underplay and hide the facts of COVID-19.
    In fact the more testing done = the more numbers of those infected rise.
    (Thus Trump strategy is not to test).
    “Total number of deaths in locked down Italy is 463 with confirmed cases surpassing 9,000.” (Al Jazeera)
