We Can’t Shut Down Again


Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that shutting down the U.S. economy for a second time to combat the spread of Covid-19 isn’t a viable option and could cause even more headaches for Americans.

“We can’t shut down the economy again. I think we’ve learned that if you shut down the economy, you’re going to create more damage,” Mnuchin told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”

“And not just economic damage, but there are other areas and we’ve talked about this: Medical problems and everything else that get put on hold,” he added. “I think it was very prudent what the president did, but I think we’ve learned a lot.”

    But there will be some Democrat governors and a couple of dumb ass Republicans who will shut down their state if someone gets the sniffles.
    And the closer to the election, the chances are pretty good that some Democrats will close down their state just to hurt President Trump.

    Democrats salivate.
