This thread is really worth the read.
The US pandemic response — no monthly relief checks; no establishing a national health care system; no meaningful debt cancellation; no rent forgiveness; no universal housing; just forcing people to work/risk their lives — is the worst domestic political scandal of my lifetime.
It is deeply shameful that leaders in both parties have dealt in acceptable spread and acceptable losses and operated under the assumption that government interference in the economy must remain as minimal as possible — that business must go on as much as possible.
Human lives are not data points. They are not expendable. Life is the only thing with any value.

This country deserved better — it deserves better still.
