NEWS:

"Total System Failure": Congress Pushes $2 Trillion Pandemic Bill. Will Dems Allow "Corporate Coup"?. the country will be unrecognizable after this pandemic if big corporations walk away with trillions of dollars and no strings attached. Video from Democracy Now here.

Seattle NPR Station Says It Will No Longer Carry Donald Trump's Coronavirus Briefings Live Because Of Misinformation. "KUOW is monitoring White House briefings for the latest news on the coronavirus - and we will continue to share all news relevant to Washington State with our listeners, However, we will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time."

It's not a bailout, it's corporate robbery. It's not 500 billion, it's 4.25 trillion. David Dayen, gives his take on the massive slush fund that the stimulus bill provides for corporate America's bailouts.

'Looting of America by Big Corporations': Senate Unanimously Passes Largest Bailout Bill in US History. It is not an economic rescue package, but a sentence of unprecedented economic inequality and corporate control over our politics that will resonate for a generation. The financial crisis of 2008 and the bank bailouts it inspired did long-term damage to the American social fabric. The campaigns of both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders largely grew out of the anger and resentment that the bank bailouts and the outrageous inequality of both the crash and the recovery inspired. Democrats control the House. They can pass a simple relief bill for people who really need it - working families - and emergency measures to actually fight the coronavirus pandemic. Or they can rubber-stamp the Senate bill and help Donald Trump foreclose on the next generation of American democracy. 3/26/20 Full article here

'All About Power': Ignoring Experts, Trump Reportedly Moving to Lift Coronavirus Restrictions Over Reelection Fears. Trump and allied Republicans fear that he will be hampered in his reelection with a bad economy. And that, in turn, matters more than anything else: science, hospitals, social cohesion and, now, human life. More here.

No Thinking Person Would Vote to Give Steven Mnuchin a Blank Check. So, as Mitch McConnell fusses and fumes, try to remember that the guy behind these stories of poisonous economic deceit and persiflage is the guy to whom the Republicans want to hand a half-trillion bucks to dole out with practically no oversight at all. Article here.

Coronavirus Outbreak Proves There Is No Public Health System in the US. Instead of a public health system, we have a private for-profit system for individuals lucky enough to afford it and a rickety social insurance system for people fortunate enough to have a full-time job. More from Robert Reich here.

My son called a few hours go to tell us his wife is home, almost certainly with the virus. She is a nurse practitioner working in an under served area in metro Detroit. She has been telling us for weeks that she has been seeing patients,most certainly with the virus, since January but there were no test kits available to confirm it. In addition there was almost no protective equipment until the last few days. My son will take care of her and their one and four year old and we will pray for the best.
To my friends. Don't even dare to tell me how great a job Trump and the federal government has done. They have been pathetically slow to acknowledge the problem. Remember "This will be gone in a few days"? They are still way behind in getting critical supplies where they are needed, despite the constant lies in the daily briefings. On top of all this my daughter-in-law has been told she has to cover her time off with her PTO and if she runs out, too bad. Do you think there is anything in this huge bill being passed to help our health care workers who are at risk. If there is I haven't heard about, but then why worry about them. I hope none of you find out how you really feel when it gets personal. Scott

Trump to Mike Pence: 'Don't call the woman in Michigan,' aka Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. What a vindictive, evil man! I called Governor Whitmer's office yesterday to show my support. #517-373-3400. Linda
