  7. "The economy is not bearing fruit, so lets cut interest rates by a (full) half of one percent." "There is nothing else to do, but get people to borrow more money and spend their way out of debt" "you! spend your way out of debt!" "but don't worry, because when the interest rates go up, no-one will be able to service their debts", ….."including the government–so live now and don't pay latter–you won't need to, it's all part of our big , opt out plan." "We just blaim it on the C19 epidemic"

  32. How does it help Americans? Trump has been looking for reasons to give himself and the rich more tax cuts, and the coronavirus is his reason. Trump supporters need to wake up. Who do you think is gonna pay the fed bank back? Not the rich and corporations, it'll be the American people.

  34. We know of a family who's gone to Italy last week. Know how they are coming back? Through another country. One of 3 or 4 countries they went to visit. I'm betting they won't be tested and will be back to work within a week of returning to the USA.
