    1. The post you quoted is my issue with Cuomo.

    2. I've already been vocal with my issues against the dems and republicans.

    As a former fiscal conservative, Normally I would agree with you. But we're in a very difficult time in the country. So, I'm willing to forgo my old beliefs of smaller government to help get the country get back on track.

    This is way too much money to shell out to corporations without any oversite. We would just end up right back where we are if there weren't any checks and balances.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    No red tape. Yes oversight.

    The $500 billion corporate slush fund in the Senate GOP bill doesn't require reporting of recipients for six months — and provides no guarantee that Trump's own businesses won't benefit.

    I'll take all of it and give each of you in here, including Jorge, $1B.

    I will then buy my own private island and live there for the next couple years.

    REPORTER: Will you commit that no money from the emergency stimulus bill will go to your own properties?

    TRUMP: "I have no idea what they're talking about. Everything is changing. But I have no idea ... let's just see what happens."

    (That's definitely not a yes!)

    One of the most blatant instances of presidential self-dealing in American history.

    Trump finds himself in a position where he can sign legislation directly enriching himself illustrates why the precedent had been for presidents to divest themselves from their business interests when they took office. Trump refused to do that, merely ceding day-to-day operations of the Trump Organizations to his two adult sons, whom he speaks with frequently and who serve as key political surrogates for him.

    REPORTER: Did you or anyone in your administration talk to anyone at the Trump Organization about the potential effects of the coronavirus?

    TRUMP: "No. I didn't speak to anybody. I speak to my sons." (Trump's sons are running his business)

    The GOP plan included a $500B “Exchange Stabilization Fund” that would’ve given Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin broad authority to decide which businesses benefited, and Congress limited authority to oversee it or even know where the money was going.

    “We’re gonna give $500 billion in basically a slush fund to help industries controlled by Mnuchin with very little transparency? Is that what we ought to be doing?” asked Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii.).

    “We're not here to create a slush fund for Donald Trump and his family, or a slush fund for the Treasury Department to be able to hand out to their friends,” railed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who made corporate accountability a big part of her White House campaign. “We're here to help workers, we're here to help hospitals. And right now, what the Republicans proposed does neither of those. “

    Even moderate West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin lashed out at the Republicans over the lack of controls on the Exchange Stabilization Fund.

    “It’s throwing caution to the wind for the average person working on Main Street, it’s balls to the walls for the people working on Wall Street,” Manchin declared. “It’s the same ol’ story from Mitch McConnell.”

    The COVID19 is not mutating significantly as it spreads around the world, according to scientists studying its genetic code. That's encouraging news for researchers hoping to create a long-lasting vaccine.

    Personally I think the President is doing a great job, this is unchartered waters. I will not put blame on China even though it originated there. Could you imagine if the President had pushed the panic button from the get go. I beleive he was calming the waters before the tide hit. Of course they knew what was coming after seeing what was going on. We all look at hindsight and shake our heads and point our fingers. Most people think because we live in a free World that we do not have to listen to the authorities. I owned a business for 20 years and if I was told to shut down, I wouldn't listen. I would have never made it if my doors were closed. I have been lurking on PSD for the past 10 years and just recently joined the team. I am a die hard Yankee fan who grew up in Montana moved to Nevada and currently working in Iraq. I have been in the Middle East for the past 10 years so if I am lucky I catch maybe 1 or 2 games a year on TV and if I schedule my vacation right I can catch a game in Oakland

    Mitch McConnell says that they’re on the 5-yard line.

    Chuck Schumer says that they’re on the 2-yard line.
