You can talk a million theories about the virus. What should’ve been done, what shouldn’t be done. There are studies that prove any point.

But 26 million unemployed isn’t a theory. It’s a fact. We did that to these people. Not China. We told these people to lose their jobs. FACT
China didn’t force a single restaurant to close. China didn’t decide barber shops can’t open. China didn’t ban people from public parks.

We did that. We made that choice.
“Do I have a job?”

“Can I pay my bills?”

That might not be how YOU vote. But that is very much how a Rust Belt swing voter who voted for Obama twice and then voted for Trump does.

If the answer to those questions is “No”, we are in trouble.
