There are lots of people who cannot get on unemployment who’re actually actually determined to get again to work. The fed needs to be getting these folks right into a place the place they’ll by with out working for the better good – ceasing the unfold.
Nonetheless, since Trump clearly believes his re-election hinges on the financial system, truly addressing the unemployment points on this nation truly hurts him, because it doesn’t spur the desperation to get again to work that Trump wants within the populace to attempt to bolster the financial system. So the federal government shouldn’t be going to do something about it, purely as a hail mary that it’s going to, down the highway, increase his election. That could be a dangerous (and silly) gambit, as it’s mainly a certainty that it’s going to result in extra contaminated, elevated unfold, and the repeatedly mounting pile of deaths, a statistic which we very heartily lead in globally.
The consequence you get is folks with a false sense of immunity, a false sense of “it will not hit me or my household” being very quick sighted and determined to get again to work.

Stopping the contagion shouldn’t be even on his radar. We’re in the course of a really quick sighted and flat-out idiotic re-election bid that’s not going to work. The one shot Trump has at re-election is that COVID fucks off earlier than November, as a result of he isn’t doing jack shit about it and is actively pushing for the other plan of action we needs to be taking – it is solely going to worsen. You suppose his dips in polling are dangerous now? We’ve not even seen the complete ripple impact of states opening up but.
