    Moscow Mitch says he going on vacation and with school closing will starve poor kids. He does not care and won’t help kids – extend snap program and now those kids have no food to eat. PLEASE HELP the kids- I don’t care about what party you are. This is wrong. The illness and death of those kids will be on Mitch for not helping them. Mitch says he not gonna pass any bills, his vacation is more important than American children starving.

    Why isn't there more testing? What good is insurance companies covering it if you can't get tested? Why are there not mobile testing stations in every country? Stop acting like we can stop this from entering the country. Those measures should have been taken months ago. It's here now. Every individual over the age of 50, or with underlying respiratory or immune deficiencies, should be tested now!

    The truth is that pence like all others know very little about the virus. To say there are "irresponsible rhetoric" is something we all already know starting with trump as a source. That is not helpful, without knowing how to differentiate good advice from bad. and since no one knows much it is not going to be possible to separate the good from the bad, which is why the compelling need to say something anything will do just say something including pence is so prevalent.

    Trump is still spouting this nonsense? The Free Press did not start the pandemic. The Democrats did not start the pandemic.
    Trump's GOP inaction is making this much much much worse!
    When I heard that Republicans believe Trump's claim that a pandemic is a hoax and wash their hands less often, this is my signal to edge away from the crazies in red hats…they are possible disease vectors when they're in public.
    The CDC has listed 0 tests conducted for several days now. Where did that testing capacity go? To borrow a phrase from Trump, "some people are saying" that the connected are getting priority.

  • Reply John Townsend March 13, 2020 at 11:23 am

    The trump administration over the last three years has been drastically cutting budgets and gutting public health agencies, eliminating preparedness teams, and abruptly dismissing expertise. It has been a deliberate concerted effort to dismantle the important measures Obama made to effectively protect the nation from the 2014 Ebola infection crisis. And as with all things Obama, trump is doing these things vengefully and recklessly. The nation is already paying a huge price with the emergence of the COVID-19 outbreak and more is definitely on the way. Meanwhile

    Pence is a lying windbag. tRump doesn't give a flying f#@k about the American people. His address last night was like a hostage video. He was obviously forced to drop his rhetoric for a more sane statement. Nobody bought it, not even Wall Street. His honest statements, which he has repeatedly made, are his real priority. He wants Americans to keep going to work & being good little consumers while he bails out industry. And remember the administration is still in court trying to dismantle what is left of the ACA. When asked if he still intends to go through with the cuts to food assistance he said yes. While many lawmakers & experts have said that we need to immediately arrange sick pay for the many Americans who will be forced to stay home due to closures or illness, tRump's plan is to give a payroll tax break…which will really help all those people receiving NO PAYROLL. These idiots are going to cause preventable deaths. Pence better stop praying for tRump to die so he can be president & start praying for forgiveness for his role in this
