Doctors, nurses and other health workers are my heroes! They risk their lives to protect us all from the scourge of the Coronavirus-19. Congress adopted a $2.3 trillion CARES ACT aid package to help both businesses and consumers with a historic economic crisis triggered by this world-wide pandemic.

Unfortunately, our President doesn’t seem to understand -- or care enough -- to set realistic goals for getting our nation back on its feet. Instead of requiring every state to issue stay at home orders and require social distancing, he says it's up to states to decide. He even suggested that perhaps we could drink cleaning solutions (chug of Lysol anyone?) to get rid of the virus so we can go back to work by the end of this month. Why does this sound like #45 cares more about business than the health of us all?
