    This madness is the embryo for riots and a depression. A person would almost need to leave the planet to avoid what is coming.

    Not having a job or money means nothing if you’re in the ICU on life support.

      @Trevor Moylan Listen I can’t help you when it comes to the Coronavirus it has a rate higher than the flu. If you want to deny reality that’s your business. Your the type of person who would say the sun doesn’t exist.

      @O SNOOPY SNOOP #1 I am sure alot of people don’t have savings. I think about all the waitresses who depend on tips, because they make very little hourly wage. Their unemployment will be mere pennies. We need a complete overhaul of unemployment.

    That’s why leadership should stay humble at all times instead of bragging and comparing administrations

    • David Goeken why NY won’t take action if they know everything and why let the city became the center of this virus??

    • Michael Nolte | March 26, 2020 at 5:13 PM | Reply

      @David Goeken Idiots like you were still trying to impeach him in January, while Trump was closing flights to China. Biden the Senile called him a racist when he did. CNN and MSNBC, home to the brain dead, were calling it nothing but the flue in February, now idiots like you say he should have taken action in December. Why did Governor Cuomo turn down the chance to purchase respirators in 2017 for New York hospitals? Is he guilty of “lack of intelligence”?

    • David Goeken | March 26, 2020 at 5:40 PM | Reply

      @Michael Nolte unfortunately you are the typical Trump supporter. Your genius President would have realized that stopping flights from China didn’t stop flights to other countries. He should have known that and did things differently from all flights from all countries.
      You can do your deflection/distraction for this lame president and put the blame on others.
      Trump is the president, should have not voted for a business man with 6 bankruptcies cause America is not a hotel or a golf course.
      Trump needs to take responsibility for his poor performance.
      I am independent, when I seen Trump in the 2016 primaries with his immoral actions I realized he was not the person I would vote for.
      So let’s say that you are just the biggest idiot like Trump for putting this moron in office.

      You might as well say Obama good Trump bad…

  7. You trust the FED? Remember what Greenspan said I in 07′

  8. *Sad to say that it is barely starting. This is nothing like what it’s going to get like*

    • @Zac Ziggarot Stocks are not back up, it’s an artificial rally based on hopes for the stimulus. The reality is we’ve lost about 4 years worth of financial gains, and the FED can’t save us any more. It could take months, maybe even years to get back to where we were.

      @Ty Love market s are looking pretty green right now, whether or not it’s gonna stay that way is another story.

    • @United States of Anonymous He doesn’t own the hospitals…blame the hospitals and local government instead of scapegoating the President like you always do.. He didn’t create the situation he is just dealing with it, and much better i will say then dementia Joe or socialist Bernie who OPENLY said they would NOT have closed the borders to China….yeah…you are on the wrong side of the fence to be casting stones. Enjoy another 4 years…you can thank the incompetent democrat party for that as well.

    • @Ty Love market was already inflated and due for recession…this was just one of the catalyst but you have to look at Russia and Saudi oil price wars as well…this was more then just the virus, we were in a bull market for a long time.

    By the time the millions get this stimulus, they’ll be almost ready for the next months bills, it’s going to get much worse.

    • Should have saved huh? And not got nene those jordans

      @Bianca Christine how is it you can edit a comment and it still sounds like you are unsure of what to say? I may not have the nicest apartment but, I still have money for a 500 dollar emergency what in your tiny mind can’t comprehend that? You will defend multimillionaires who profit off drama and fear mongering but, refuse to defend a president because, what he’s rich surely, you introspected at some point in your life and discovered you have more inconsistencies than one of Joe Biden speeches.

      @Bianca Christine you’re defending CNN coverage dear, try and keep up who your hating today my little keyboard warrior.

    Americans have been told from birth the almighty dollar trumps everything, now they’re having to come to terms with life being the priority. For how long tho?

    • The mighty dollar does trump everything. If the US economy collapses, so will other economies globally. Too many other countries depend on us

      My heart goes out to you. This pandemic is devastating in every aspect of our lives. We are not in a position to help other. Hoping that our elected government provides sufficient help and soon.

  18. Looking at the growing record number of jobless claims it’s safe to say the proposed bailout package is not enough.
