Here's a plan to save America:
1. Provide the testing and equipment needed to combat the pandemic. Immediately. Use full powers of the federal gov't to achieve this.
2. Create an economic plan that helps people--no cost for testing, no cost for care, safety net for lost work.
3. Any funds going to bailout industries must go to essential high-employment industries that promise no stock buy backs, no exec comp boosts until funds paid back. Also: no aid for airlines that squandered capital on buybacks, Boeing that was criminally negligent...
...casinos and cruise lines that are non-essential (and in the case of cruise lines foreign registered and run), or hotels owned by Trump.
4. Make grant or cheap loan capital available to small businesses.
5. Create cash support for gig and contract workers.
6. Follow advice of medical professionals for how long to maintain lockdowns. If you provide sufficient economic package we can wait it out.
7. Restore market faith by having leaders that tell the truth and a credible plan to both stop the pandemic and restore the economy.
8. Invest the money needed to ensure fair elections can take place in Nov & install systems enabling Congress to securely operate remotely.
9. Elect a Democrat president & Dem majorities in the House & Senate.
10. Investigate what went wrong and hold wrong-doers accountable.
