We Gotcha Death Panels Right Here!

You first, Dan. Do it for the children.

Anyway, this morning’s email thingie from Axios is show us that the tide is changing:

We just lived through the week that America changed: The second installment of our weekly Axios-Ipsos Coronavirus Index shows sudden, massive shifts in how we work, shop, socialize and care for ourselves and our families.

  • “We’ve never seen this widespread, systemic, forced behavioral change — never in American history — this quickly,” said Cliff Young, president of Ipsos U.S. Public Affairs.

Partisan divisions about the seriousness of the coronavirus have collapsed, writes Margaret Talev, Axios White House and politics editor.

  • 9 in 10 Americans now fear the virus, with half worried about their jobs and their ability to pay the bills.
  • A 21-point gap last week between Democrats and Republicans has narrowed to 11, with 95% of Democrats and 84% of Republicans now saying they are concerned.

The Smart Brevity on the poll: Everything’s worse.

You don’t say?

    If it’s public health versus the economy, the only choice is public health. You cannot put a value on human life.

    You do the right thing. That’s what Pop taught us

    There are still people alive today who lived through WWII, when rationing was set up, cars weren’t made because bombers took precedence, and women entered the manufacturing workforce en masse to replace the men who went off to fight against the Nazis and other fascists.
    People were willing to go along with the new rules to protect the country (kind of like now) and to help the rest of the world with the problem. I guess a difference can be seen in the leadership we had then – it went right to the top instead of being displayed best by governors and mayor.

    Republicans have become great advocates for sacrifice–as long a someone else is making the sacrifice. Young people can make the sacrifice and go to war; old people can make the sacrifice to “save” the economy. But don’t worry. Everyone making a sacrifice will have Republicans’ thoughts and prayers to keep them warm. Trump will throw himself a parade, and throw you a roll of paper towels (but not toilet paper; he needs that for those 10-12 flushes).

    • Republicans in my lifetime have always been great advocates for sacrifice of others. I think the very last one who wasn’t completely so was Ike. (and he certainly presided of the running up of the Cold War that sacrificed millions around the globe in the thrall of fascist anti-communist dictatorships…so maybe not even him…)

      Patrick, another divorced, bankrupt republican, didn’t sacrifice himself during the Viet Nam cluster-f*ck even though he was “qualified” to serve. So, don’t expect this coward to do-himself-in any time soon, not for love or money.
