No. You’re comparing deaths at the peak of a full-blown epidemic to deaths from one which is nowhere near its peak, and minimizing the latter. You could have cited similar statistics about Italy a few weeks back, which makes clear how wrong your analysis is.
Lyin’ Mike Lester. The Republicans give money to airlines and cruise ship companies in the economic recovery package, but that’s OK, because . . . That’s not really travel? No, because Amtrak is an important piece of transit infrastructure in urban areas, especially the Northeast, which don’t support the Fat Bastard in Chief, and therefore are scorned by Lyin’Mike. Much more important to sneak in special provisions to help sunscreen makers in Mitch McConnell’s home state. Much more important to include a gigantic tax break for real estate developers — one that is most valuable for those whose business isn’t significantly hurt by the coronavirus. Remember, it’s not pork if it’s a tax break for people who don’t need one.
Why are you bragging about your stupidity?
Mr Payne, your utter lack of a moral compass is flagrantly on display. The Senate Republicans included an obscure provision giving a $170 EFFING BILLION TAX BREAK to real estate developers — a retroactive break that has nothing whatever to do with the coronavirus. Even worse, this tax break had been repealed in the first round of Trumpy tax cuts as a trade-off for expanding other tax breaks. And who are major beneficiaries of this well-hidden but of sleaze? The Trump Organization. Kushner Inc. And Henry Payne is bothered by aid to American cultural organizations. Have you no decency, sir?
Trump suffers primarily from self-inflected moral disabilities.
And Trump can do more of this in an afternoon than Biden does in a month. More covfefe for everybody!
It took you this long to notice, Ms Benson?
So, Lisa, you prefer the pure SOCIALISM of the Republican plan to the more capitalist tradeoffs in the House bill?
Way too late.
Except that, until a few days ago, Fat Donald was insisting that the coronavirus wasn’t really coming.
