By now, everyone living in civilization has heard that the U.S. economy created 4,800,000 jobs in June. Not only that but the unemployment rate dropped from 13.3% to 11.1%. That doesn’t mean that Democrats didn’t try splashing cold water on the report. Pelosi’s statement is classic partisanship:

The early June snapshot in the jobs report, when the economy was opening up too early, does not reflect the coronavirus spiraling out of control, forcing communities that had begun to reopen to close once again.

Unemployment continues to be higher than any previous period since World War II. We have reached 15 straight weeks of more than 1 million Americans applying for unemployment insurance and tens of thousands of new coronavirus cases reported each day, as the critical lifelines that are helping to keep American families and communities above water expire. Economists, scientists and even the Chair of the Fed have indicated that if we don’t deliver the investments in The Heroes Act, we will end up in a worse place economically and health wise.

The economy created 7,500,000 jobs in the last 2 months but Ms. Pelosi insists on accentuating the negative. In fact, she’s lying to make things seem worse than they are. Saying that the coronavirus is “spiraling out of control” is as stupid as when Ms. Pelosi said that “Republicans were trying to get away with murder, George Floyd’s murder”:

What a whack job. Yes, we’re experiencing a spike but we know what we need to do to get that under control. Potentially, that’s a momentary blip because it’s easily fixed. Joe Biden’s tax hikes aren’t a momentary blip. Those would be permanent. The Democrats’ tax policy would certainly push corporations back overseas, which means lower wage growth, lower workforce participation rates, lower consumer confidence and higher unemployment rates for minorities and women.

Speaking of Biden, he apparently couldn’t wait to look stupid:

Biden noted that only a third of the jobs lost in March and April have returned and stressed that “most of those jobs that returned are people on temporary furlough. That means these were the easiest jobs to get back as we reopened cities and states. It’s only going to get harder from here though.”

Nobody thought that we’d get all 40,000,000 jobs back in a month, Joe. The whole point of the PPP was to make sure small businesses could ramp back up the minute we got past the hardest part of the virus. If that’s the criteria, then the PPP, which Nancy Pelosi delayed twice in her attempt to get a few extra items on the Democrats’ wish list, is a huge success.

That bill wasn’t put together by Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer. The PPP was put together by people like Steve Mnuchin, Peter Navarro, Mike Pence, Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell. If Biden is elected, only Grassley would be there to put together economic packages that actually work.

Do we really want to return to the Obama-Biden days of shipping jobs overseas? Shouldn’t we prefer the great pre-COVID Trump economy over the 8 years of lackluster economic growth of the Obama-Biden economy?

Saying that this election hinges on taming the various mobs (Black Lives Matter, Antifa and Justice Democrats) while jumpstarting the economy. That requires mental toughness, agility in messaging and the willingness to proverbially cut the Democrats’ heart out. Anyone that’s watched what’s happened to babies through teenagers in Chicago and thinks that the mob can be dealt with isn’t paying attention. That’s just stupid thinking. Anyone that’s watched what’s happened in Minneapolis, specifically along Lake Street, and still thinks that this election isn’t a street fight is kidding themselves.

Antifa, BLM and the Justice Democrats have Biden right where they want him. He isn’t capable of putting 2 straight sentences together, which means that Democrats can push him to do whatever they want him to do. What they want him to do is be a trojan horse, someone that looks harmless at first, then transforms into society’s worst nightmare.

For instance, the Justice Democrats state on their website that “Justice Democrats is working to elect a mission-driven caucus in Congress that will fight for solutions that match the scale of our many crises: skyrocketing inequality, catastrophic climate change, deepening structural racism as the country becomes more diverse, and the corporate takeover of our democracy.”

That isn’t all the Justice Democrats say. Here’s more:

We need a Democratic Party that fights for its voters, not its corporate donors. That’s why we helped elect leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Congress. We need leadership in the Democratic Party that will represent and fight for our communities.

After NYC cut $1,000,000,000 from the NYPD budget last night, AOC said this:

Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”

The Resistance isn’t disappearing. It’s getting stronger. If thoughtful people of all political stripes don’t recognize this, they should be ostracized. The Democrats’ political hacks, like Donna Brazile, Marie Harf and Jessica Tarlov can assure us that Democrats don’t want to defund police departments all they want. They’re either lying or they’re just stupid.

I don’t buy the notion that they’re stupid. They know that police forces are funded at the municipal level, not the federal level. It doesn’t matter what Pelosi or Jim Clyburn or Joe Biden says on the subject. The voices that matter are the voices of people most voters haven’t heard of. People like Lisa Bender and Jeremiah Ellison have infinitely more say in police budget matters.

It isn’t a stretch to say that the Justice Democrats essentially run the Democrat Party. They just took out Elliot Abrams in a primary. They almost beat Amy McGrath in Kentucky’s primary. Here’s their entire list of candidates.

This isn’t the time for nitpicking. It’s the time to fight like hell. Idiots like Mitt Romney should be criticized for supporting Black Lives Matter. Did Mitt even know that BLM’s co-founders admitted that they were “trained Marxists”?

Wake up Mitt. This isn’t some innocent organization. They’ll rip your heart out, too, after they’ve used you. You’re just a useful idiot that they’ll use on their way to achieving power that will lead to the overthrow of this constitutional republic.

Politicians, it’s time to set aside the partisanship. It’s time for everyone to put America first. To Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jim Clyburn and other Democrats, it’s time to set aside the partisanship that’s been part of your system. Sit down in good faith with Tim Scott and negotiate a principled compromise with him. If Van Jones can work with Jared Kushner on the police reform executive order, then it’s certainly possible for you to negotiate in good faith.

If you can’t do that, then just step aside. Let others who can work in good faith finish this legislation. It’s time to fix what’s broken. Americans have the right to safety. Eliminate the idiotic ideas about eliminating police departments. Tell the activists who want deep cuts in police department budgets to take a hike. The vast, vast majority of Americans want that for their kids and expect that from their politicians.

If you won’t do what’s right, we’ll find people who will. You think that you’re irreplaceable? I’m telling you that you’re only essential if you do what’s right for the people.

It’s long past time to tell Democrat media hacks like Jessica Tarlov, Marie Harf and Donna Brazile to shut up about what the ‘Defund the Police’ movement is or isn’t about. Tarlov, Harf and Brazile are Democrat establishment hacks waging a public fight against the Bernie Bros/BLM/Antifa/AOC activist wing of the Democratic Party. The truth is that Democrats are split on this from a PR standpoint. Democrats aren’t split on this from a policy standpoint.

Bill de Blasio is the worst big city mayor in America. He wants to cut $1,000,000,000 from NYPD’s $6,000,000,000 police budget while “gun violence has surged across the Big Apple.” De Blasio insists that “We can do this, we can strike the balance, we can keep this city safe.”

Of course, that doesn’t match with reality, which is normal with de Blasio:

The violence continued across the city over the weekend as eleven people were shot in less than 12 hours Saturday night into Sunday night, including in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Manhattan.

The key to preventing crime is … reducing the numbers of officers on the street? If de Blasio had been alive when they made the Wizard of Oz, he might’ve gotten cast as the Scarecrow even without an audition:

“We have caved to the mob in a moment we know will come back to haunt us,” Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) told The Post. “The mayor is smart enough to know that these actions will create a more violent environment in New York. “This is what you get when you have government-by-hashtag,” he added.

Borelli’s counterpart from Queens, Councilman Robert Holden, echoed the complaints. “I’m against wholesale cuts based on protest signs,” the Middle Village Democrat said. “One billion dollars is an arbitrary number that the mayor and some of my colleagues are trying to reach to appease the masses without considering public safety.”

De Blasio insists that this is part of his reform package. That’s BS. There aren’t any reforms in this proposal. The only thing that’s happening is de Blasio caving to BLM, Antifa and AOC.

Defunding the police is happening in too many places for Democrats to ignore. LA, NYC, Seattle, Portland and Chicago are cutting their budgets. Minneapolis wants to eliminate their police department entirely. Since PD budgets are set locally, Democrat hacks like Tarlov, Harf, Brazile and Biden can say whatever they want. Their voices are irrelevant.

The voices that matter are the activists’ voices (#BlackLivesMatter, Antifa) and the de facto leaders of the Democrats (AOC, Ilhan Omar, Lisa Bender and Jeremiah Ellison).

After President Trump walked over to St. John’s Church, aka the Presidents’ Church, Democrat ‘leadership’, aka Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, issued a statement criticizing the visit. In their joint statement, Pelosi and Schumer said “Across our country, Americans are protesting for an end to the pattern of racial injustice and brutality we saw most recently in the murder of George Floyd. Yet, at a time when our country cries out for unification, this President is ripping it apart. Tear-gassing peaceful protestors without provocation just so that the President could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us.”

Marco Rubio, the acting Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, fired back, saying “Many in the media fell for the calculated & deliberate tactics of professional agitators. They knew the street needed to be cleared before 7pm curfew. But they deliberately stayed to trigger police action & get the story they wanted, that ‘police attacked peaceful protestors.'”

As for the Pelosi-Schumer statement, blaming President Trump for enforcing the laws exposes these Democrats as the next generation of soft-on-crime McGovern-Carter Democrats. Without enforcing laws, there is nothing to govern. It becomes an Antifa-driven world.


Until now, I’d separated the rioters from the protesters. The more I think this over, the more I’m forced to consider the possibility that the protesters are just a milder version of the rioters. What else should we think when we hear that Joe Biden’s campaign staff bailed out the rioters?

At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.

Apparently, Democrats don’t care about the destruction that these terrorists create. Democrats see this crisis as an opportunity to increase their political power. The greater good, aka the destruction of Republicans, especially President Trump, is what they’re focused on. This statement is beyond dishonest, especially this paragraph:

At this challenging time, our nation needs real leadership. The President’s continued fanning of the flames of discord, bigotry and violence is cowardly, weak and dangerous.

That’s pathetic. Democrat mayors in Minneapolis, NYC and Philadelphia have let rioters run roughshod over police:

Letting rioters riot is the definition of being “cowardly, weak and dangerous.” Letting rioters burn down a police precinct is the definition of being cowardly, weak and dangerous. Pelosi and Schumer are the definition of the ‘Hate America First’ wing of the Democrat Party.

Mitch McConnell’s Senate passed by voice vote the PPP bill to refill the PPP refill account. After weeks of stalling, Pelosi’s House will likely pass the bill Wednesday. It didn’t come without plenty of grumbling from Democrats. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, virtually one of the members of the Democrats’ Squad, didn’t hesitate in talking about why the PPP refill bill was delayed:


According to Tyler O’Neil’s article, Rep. Jayapal said “I think what you’re hearing from all of us on the call is that we have real concerns about giving away leverage now without getting some of the priorities that we need.” This isn’t surprising. Pelosi used this tactic to hold Blue Collar America hostage when the PPP was created. Pelosi also tried this technique to negotiate the trial rules for the Democrats’ faux impeachment trial.

In that instance, Pelosi ran into a brick wall named McConnell. Predictably, that negotiation went nowhere fast. I wrote about that negotiation here:

The Constitution gives the sole power of Impeachment to the House. If a House majority wants to impeach a president, the ball is in their court. But they have to do the work. They have to prove their case. Nothing in our history or our Constitution says a House majority can pass what amounts to a half-baked censure resolution and then insist that the Senate fill in the blanks. There is no constitutional exception for a House majority with a short attention span.

Look, I think everyone knows this process has not been some earnest fact-finding mission with House Democrats following each thread wherever it leads. The Speaker of the House did not reluctantly decide to impeach after poring over the secondhand impressions of civil servants. This was a predetermined political conclusion. Members of her conference had been publicly promising it for years.

Here’s the video of that famous speech:

But I digress. The point is that Democrats, whether it’s a matter of people losing their jobs or some other life-and-death situation, always seek a political advantage. Doing the right thing right off the bat is never part of the Democrats’ tactics.

Let’s not forget that the leader of the House Democrats shot off her mouth on this, too. She and Schumer both essentially told Blue Collar America to go to hell. This is the Schumer-Pelosi Shutdown. Check this out:

Literally millions of people have lost their jobs as a direct result of the Democrats’ stall tactics. Any family that lost their family business should directly hold the Democrats to blame. This shutdown of the program was entirely avoidable. Pelosi’s Democrats could’ve avoided the shutdown had they acted. Instead, these Democrats delayed helping Blue Collar America multiple weeks in search of a partisan advantage.

How disgusting is that?

Guy Benson’s article highlights what I’m now calling the ‘Democrats’ hate Americans agenda.’ 22,000,000 people have lost their jobs this past month. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell proposed appropriating $250,000,000,000 to the Paycheck Protection Program fund, which started with $350,000,000,000 a month ago and has already run out.

Sen. McConnell’s bill was a clean bill to speed assistance to the fund to keep employees on their employers’ payrolls. It was an emergency, aka stopgap, measure that was needed to keep businesses afloat. Unfortunately, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are playing hardball while people’s lives are literally hanging in the balance. She’s even bragging that Democrats blocked the McConnell bill that would’ve kept millions of employees employed.

That’s the definition of heartless. Meanwhile, the MSM is running interference for Democrats:


This isn’t a “game of chicken. This is people’s lives being put at risk by a POS devil woman from San Francisco who loves playing partisan games with other people’s lives. This is a Don’t Give A Damn NY Senator saying ‘I can’t be bothered.’

This isn’t a time for partisanship. Look at how much President Trump has worked with Gov. Cuomo, Mayor De Blasio, Gov. Murphy and Gov. Newsom. Pelosi and Schumer, by comparison, have been totally worthless. I don’t trust them whatsoever. What’s worse is that rank-and-file Democrats haven’t stepped forward for their small businesses. They haven’t told Pelosi and Schumer to knock their ill-advised tactics off. They’ve sat in the corner like silent sheep, unwilling to do what’s right. Politicians who aren’t willing to do what’s right, especially during a crisis, are worthless, especially to their small businesses and their employees.

Here’s Queen Pelosi’s ‘Let them eat chocolate ice cream’ moment:

What type of person thinks that it’s funny to show off their $22,000 freezer filled with $12 per half-pint ice cream right after she essentially put 5,000,000 blue collar workers on unemployment by playing obstructionist partisan games?


Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, these jobs and these livelihoods are solely your responsibility. Had you negotiated in good faith, Blue Collar America wouldn’t be hurting as much as it’s hurting.

Election Day can’t happen soon enough. Mike Huckabee said that “the best form of leadership is servant leadership.” That’s true. The leadership that Pelosi is practicing isn’t servant leadership. It’s haughty autocrat leadership.

While families lose their life savings and small businesses go bankrupt at Depression-era rates (and 22,000,000 lose their jobs in a month), Nancy Pelosi’s $24,000 freezer know what’s most important:


San Francisco’s Marie Antoinette hasn’t flinched since the Paycheck Protection Plan, aka PPP, ran out of money. Let’s examine Ms. Pelosi’s history of destruction. The first time, when they were negotiating the creation of the PPP, Pelosi insisted that funding for the Kennedy Center and the National Institutes for the Arts and the National Institutes for the Humanities be funded. That helped delay funding for families by a week.

This time, Pelosi and Schumer are calling “for ‘further changes’ to the Paycheck Protection Program, plus ‘significantly increased’ funding for disaster grants and loans, plus ‘additional support’ for the food-stamp program, plus ‘adequate funding’ for nationwide virus testing and personal protective equipment.” Thus far, she’s held small businesses hostage over these minor details.

While small businesses go bankrupt, Pelosi eats $12 a pint ice cream from her $24,000 freezer. While I don’t begrudge Pelosi and her husband the wealth that they’ve accumulated, I’ve got a problem with leaders who don’t pay attention to the people they’re supposed to serve. What’s frustrating is that that’s just part of her path of destruction. Kim Strassel writes “Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed President Donald Trump during a private call with her caucus Monday, saying he was putting Americans in grave danger if he rushes to reopen the economy at the end of this month,” reported Politico this week. The article laid out Mrs. Pelosi’s requirement: Until a robust ‘testing and contact tracing’ system is in place, ‘it would be impossible for the president to guarantee Americans a safe reentry into their normal life.'”

Michiganders protesting in Lansing might not care about “a safe reentry into their normal life.” They might be willing to accept a tiny bit of risk to return to work. Then there’s this:

Congressional Democrats are meanwhile debating their “own plan to reopen the nation,” said Politico, with legislation that would ask “each state to submit a plan” and that “would also require adequate testing and contact tracing to prevent a second outbreak.” The Washington Post reports that “Trump has been so insistent on the reopening that some officials worry only a narrow window exists to provide information to change his mind or to ensure that the effort to reopen does not significantly add to the country’s rising number of infections and deaths.”

Pelosi is misreading this situation terribly. She’s pretending that she’s negotiating from a position of strength. She tried that against Mitch McConnell over impeachment rules. That negotiation flopped miserably. She got nothing out of it except terrible headlines. This won’t end any differently. The good news is that she’s dragging her caucus down with her. That likely means that Kevin McCarthy will be the next Speaker, starting in 2021.

Good riddance to Speaker Pelosi. She’s been hurting Blue Collar America for decades.

When Chuck Schumer shut down the government for a weekend, he suffered a political backlash that likely cost him the Senate majority. It was one of the dumbest political stunts in political history. (Read more about it here.) As bad as Schumer’s Shutdown was for Senate Democrats, Pelosi’s Payroll Protection Program, aka PPP, will make Schumer’s Shutdown seem like a little turbulence.

When the SBA account ran dry Thursday afternoon, Pelosi took to TV to brag about shutting down those businesses. When she was asked on C-SPAN why she let the PPP run out of money, she stuttered:


Here is Pelosi bragging that Democrats shut down small businesses nationwide:

How tone-deaf is Pelosi? It’s possible that she’s the most tone-deaf politician in U.S. history. After watching this, wouldn’t you agree?


Middle class families’ lives hang in the balance and she’s playing Marie Antoinette. How heartless is she? How spineless are Democrats like Debbie Dingell, Adam Schiff, Dean Phillips and Angie Craig? Thursday afternoon, Craig said that she’s working hard after hearing that the PPP ran out of money. Apparently, Craig didn’t think that criticizing Pelosi for letting the fund dry up was her responsibility. Then again, Phillips is MIA on this. How’s that fit into his resume of being a vital part of the Problem Solvers Caucus? Phillips has been MIA within the Problem Solvers Caucus, too.

Pelosi just ate the economic downturn by shafting small businesses and their employees. It isn’t likely that they’ll let Pelosi or Democrats off the hook for that decision. Further, voters shouldn’t let Democrats off the hook for not listening to Main Street.

Apparently, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want to be blamed for the economic hardship Americans are experiencing. It’s apparent because the Paycheck Protection Program has used all of its $350,000,000,000. President Trump knew that the money was going fast. That’s why he’s given Steve Mnuchin the responsibility to negotiate another appropriation of $250,000,000,000 with Nancy Pelosi. The problem is that she’s nowhere to be found.

Politicians, experts and bankers had been warning the program would run out by the end of this week or sooner without additional appropriated funding. But Congress has been locked in a stalemate over a possible $250 billion extension, with congressional Democrats pushing for additional funding for hospitals and state and local governments. Lawmakers have been on recess themselves as part of an effort to avoid further spread of the virus through large groups.

We were told that hospitals would be overwhelmed, that they’d run out of the supplies that they’d need to fight COVID-19. USNS Mercy was sent to Los Angeles Harbor while the USNS Comfort was sent to NY Harbor. The Javits Center was turned into a 2,900-bed hospital. Each of these facilities have been vastly underutilized.

That isn’t saying that hospitals aren’t hurting. I wrote this post to highlight this:

Mayo Clinic has unveiled a plan to cut $1.6 billion in pay, withdraw nearly $1 billion from its financial reserves and save another $700 million through a hiring freeze to counteract a $3 billion loss inflicted by the coronavirus. A large portion of this loss was the result of Governor Tim Walz’s ban on non-essential procedures that has cost Mayo up to 75% of its business in some areas.

I’m not saying that we should return to business-as-usual. That would be foolish. Those aren’t the only 2 options, though, are they? Why aren’t governors working to put plans in place that would incorporate the CDC’s recommendations into workplaces?

Last night, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy issued this statement:

This did not have to happen. Republicans have been sounding the alarm for more than a week. Last Thursday, Senate Republicans tried to pass a narrow and clean bill that would have simply put more money into this critical program without changing any of the underlying policies that passed the Senate and the House unanimously. Democrats blocked it. Even as the program is saving millions of American jobs, Speaker Pelosi has said she sees “no data as to why we need” to keep funding it.

It has been stunning to watch our Democratic colleagues treat emergency funding for Americans’ paychecks like a Republican priority which they need to be goaded into supporting. Funding a bipartisan program should not be a partisan issue. The notion that crucial help for working people is not appealing enough to Democrats without other additions sends a strange message about their priorities.

The cost of continued Democratic obstruction will be pink slips and shuttered businesses. We hope Democrats see reason soon and finally heed Republicans’ repeated calls for a funding bill that can quickly earn unanimous consent from all 100 senators and become law.

Thanks to Schumer’s and Pelosi’s temper tantrum, small businesses will get hurt, perhaps to the point of shutting down forever. Those bankruptcies will be solely on Sen. Schumer’s and Pelosi’s and the Democrats’ hands. Democrats are the idiots that fought against sending these people a lifeline. Democrats are the people who thought that this crisis shouldn’t go to waste. Democrats are the politicians that thumbed their noses at blue collar workers. That’s whose getting hurt the most by small businesses shutting down. The big corporations that Democrats constantly rail against have other ways of getting help. There was a time when Democrats cared about blue collar workers. That time is gone. Democrats just proved with their inaction where their allegiances are.

Kelli Ward’s op-ed in Newsweek contains the right medicine for restarting the U.S. economy. Dr. Ward writes that, just as the first COVID-19 task force has recommended regulations that slowed medical innovation, so must President Trump’s economic task force eliminate regulations that cause economic stagnation:

Just as first task force identified places where our medical regulations sometimes hindered the swift action required (such as forcing the FDA to rapidly approve clinical trials for potential life-saving medicines), the new task force needs to identify the abundance of regulatory obstacles standing in the way of an economic jump start. From the start, the Trump Administration has done an exceptional job removing burdensome regulations to foster a booming economy. As America returns to work post-coronavirus, it is imperative that we finish the job by eliminating every remaining shred of unnecessary red tape that holds our economy back.

It’s also critical that the task force represents diverse sectors of our economy, starting with a robust delegation of small businesses. In addition to mom-and-pop small businesses, the travel, hospitality and food service industries have been clobbered and all deserve to have a seat at the table. Other considerations should be given to restaurants, live events and sports leagues, as well as all other entertainment and leisure industries.

The first important step is rejecting Sen. Schumer’s and Nancy Pelosi’s government-centric initiatives. When was the last time regulations created a FedEx or a Microsoft? When did government interference help ignite an economic upswing? The answer to both questions is never.

Dr. Ward is right about this, too:

Furthermore, the task force should avoid making one-size-fits-all pronouncements on entire cities, states and regions. As someone who lives in flyover country, I can tell you that many Arizonans have felt inundated by a big-city-only perspective on the crisis. While our hearts are with our fellow citizens in New York City, I can assure you some parts of the country can and would reopen now if given the opportunity. The same approach should be applied to entire sectors of the economy. Many industries will have to enact new protocols to ensure the worker safety in order to restart. The second task force can and should provide guidance on those protocols.

One-size-fits-all policy-making is fantastic — if everyone’s needs are exactly the same. Thinking that the manufacturers’ needs are the same as the financial industry’s needs or the agribusiness’s needs is foolish. The task force should have people who’ve built strong economies on it. It requires people like Larry Kudlow, Art Laffer, Steve Mnuchin. It requires small business entrepreneurs. Bernie Marcus and Steve Forbes should be part of the task force, too.

Speaking of one-size-fits-all vs. federalism:


I can’t say it better than that. I’ll leave it at that.

If President Trump staffs this task force on Tuesday, then it’s imperative that they start the research on rebuilding the economy on Wednesday at the latest. While it’s important to get people physically healthy, it’s essential that we get people financially healthy, too. The best way to do that is to eliminate punishments on entrepreneurs. Imposing taxes are required to run a government. Imposing regulations are required for running an orderly society. Too much of either, though, leads to economic stagnation.
