Politicians not concerned about COVID-19’s detriment to average folks
When unemployment insurance runs out and the moratorium on evictions ends, millions of families will be in dire circumstances. Homelessness will be as epidemic as COVID-19, and the anguish ordinary Americans experience will equal anything felt during the Great Depression. But having bailed out Wall Street, neither the administration nor Congress seems inclined to do anything to address the agony that will afflict everyday people. Contrast this with what’s being done in Germany, Ireland and elsewhere. It is obvious some governments provide for their citizens in a crisis, whereas ours supports only business and thinks that is sufficient. Sadly, the people affected won’t ever dare to challenge the powers that be.
