Trump says he wants to ease up on coronavirus related shutdowns 'pretty soon' amid concerns about economy
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: ‘Lots of Grandparents’ Willing to Die to Save Economy for Grandchildren
Extreme measures to flatten the virus “curve” is sensible-for a time-to stretch out the strain on health infrastructure. But crushing the economy, jobs and morale is also a health issue-and beyond.

What does one call the “guess some people gotta die” stage of capitalism? pic.twitter.com/ZmufExsfGz— nikki mccann ramírez (@NikkiMcR) March 23, 2020
Just the introduction of a false choice between letting the elderly die (ignoring the young people who are chronically ill, immunocompromised, pregnant, etc.) and having millions die from poverty in the future is incredible and shows that no matter what, Republicans would rather let millions die than implement any kind of socialist-adjacent policy or allow the death of their precious capitalism, which kills millions yearly via poverty anyway.
If you don't want to bring it all down after this I don't know what to say to you.
We can save a lot of people if we want. Republicans would rather hold on to their wealth and power while millions die. Same as it ever was, this virus has just put it directly in the sunlight.
