Texas' lieutenant governor says USA should 'open for business'

Texas Lt. Gov.: Grandparents would be willing to die to save the economy

First, I hope Dan Patrick realizes that he's not speaking for all seniors, because I have a strong hunch millions of older Americans would be far less eager to put their lives on the line in order to prevent short-term economic hardship. "It is a divide that is pitting public health officials, who are desperately begging Americans to stay in their homes and therefore avoid spreading the virus, with some of the voices in American politics and business, including former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein".

"No one reached out to me and said, as a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren?"

'Let's get back to work. Let's be smart about it and those of us who are 70-plus, we'll take care of ourselves. "But don't sacrifice the country". Texas has more than 700 cases of the coronavirus and eight deaths, with most of the cases in the major metropolitan areas of Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio.

Patrick's comments set off a backlash online, but were also met with some approval, with the reaction often splitting along Democratic and Republican lines. "Let's get back to living", he told Carlson.

"I was very clear last night that we should continue President Trump's 15-day plan and if he believes we need more time, then we need more time".

"We could do a really good job of this in Austin, and if we're the only ones who do a good job it's not going to work", Adler said. "The lives of our families, our friends, and our communities have no dollar amount", he said.

This too shall pass: Tom Hanks offers dose of optimism
Be it the rich, the poor or even the famous, the virus has affected people from all walks of life and spared none. Actor Idris Elba , who also tested positive for the virus, praised Wilson and Hanks for speaking out so early.

His comments come after Trump said he wanted the economy to start up again and make America "open for business" in a matter of weeks - not months.

"I intend to be around a long time on your show, but it's worth whatever it takes to save the country", Patrick said.

'Our country wasn't built to be shut down.

At the White House's coronavirus briefing Monday night, the administration's coronavirus response coordinator, Dr Deborah Birx, said that emerging data from Europe suggested that 99% of the coronavirus deaths were people over age 50, and that many had pre-existing conditions.

Trump, who has raised concerns about the damage that coronavirus prevention measures are doing to the USA economy, said he was eager to return for the country to return to normal as soon as possible, and suggested that an economic crisis might result in more deaths, through suicide, than a global pandemic.
