From the appropriately named tool, Sen. Johnson (R – WI) in USA Today:
“Each year, approximately 48,000 Americans commit suicide and an estimated 67,000 die of a drug overdose. That level of individual despair has occurred in a strong economy with near-record low levels of unemployment in virtually every demographic. Imagine the potential psychological and human toll if this shutdown continues indefinitely, unemployment reaches 20% or higher, as some now predict, and we sink into a deep recession or depression.
Just what are you getting at, RoJo?
“The U.S. Senate just passed a $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill in a less-than-perfect attempt to mitigate some of the economic fallout. In addition to the current human toll, future generations will be required to pick up that tab. Every premature death is a tragedy, but death is an unavoidable part of life. ”
Very deep. As Ms. Fleming said in Heathers, “Whether to kill yourself or not is one of the most important decisions a teenager can make.”
