    Every MAGA supporter needs one!

    We cannot forget the largest drop in history happened under his watch.

    In all fairness, the "crash" is due to Covid-19, not Trumper.

    I guess "God" doesn't like Trump anymore, aw well...

    In all fairness, it only drops every time Trump announces a plan to intervene.

    I guess Hoover didn't have a role in the last stock market crash, either?

    Come on, son, be better.

    He said he got tested.... but I don't believe him.

    Asked what it was like to take the test, Trump says, "Not, not uh - something I want to do everyday...you know, it's a little bit of a -- it's a little bit of -- good doctors in the White House, but it's a test. It's a test. It's a medical test. Nothing pleasant about it."

    The futures were actually flat to near up just a tiny bit then the Fed came in with this emergency measure announcement rate drop to near zero and the futures dropped big time.

    Not the reaction the Fed was expecting.

    But that's what happened in 2008, 2000, 1987, 1973, etc. everytime the rate is dropped, it causes massive problems.

    I thought the GOP learned that last time ... I guess not.

    Every single time 45 announces an economic plan, the gains fall out and turn into losses.

    EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

    That's not COVID-19, that's failed leadership and failed plans (the same ones that didn't work last time).

    Except that with Trump getting nothing is actually the best a progressive can hope for. 'I will take as much of what you already had as I can manage' is what the guy has been trying to do since he took the office.

    He definitely does have a roll to play. If you are lying one day and saying that the cases will soon drop to 0 then the next couple days you are declaring a national emergency and we still cant find test kits that erodes confidence in this being handled. He had to be shamed into appointing a task force. And then he appoints fucking Pence for the job.

    He doesn't know how to comfort the nation, calm people down that's never been who he is. He spent the vast majority of his presidency relishing in dividing us purposefully. So when he says its time to come together and work together it seems fake and disingenuous. No one should have been surprised though. He was never one for a plan or listening to advice or believing in science and medical experts until now hes forced too.

    Then there is the oil crisis which is back burner now but that's partially him as well. He had Kushner palling around with MBS selling him weapons while he ordered journalists to be cut apart. Now when we need him and Putin to quit fucking around with oil prices he has no leverage? Cant talk to them at all?

How well will that work when public opinion is more divided about your plans than FDRís AND there is a 7-2 Conservative majority on the Supreme Court? You donít have to like Biden. But at least vote to ensure that Medicare For All, should it happen, wonít be struck down by a Conservative court.
    I totally get the courts argument, but let's not forget that the Democrats pretty much didn't fight McConnell at all on blocking Merrick Garland's nomination because they all assumed that Hillary was going to win the election and render that moot, never mind that Republican senators were already claiming that they were committed to fighting her on this for the next four years if need be. I don't trust Biden one bit to hold firm here, I can totally see him compromising by finding the most right wing black woman in the nation and putting her on the court because yay representation, and then act all shocked and dismayed when she sides with the conservative justices on everything leading to the exact scenario you described anyway.

    Unlike you, I'm not certain of this. Besides Covid-19 there are other factors at play including that Saudi Arabia and Russia are presently engaged in a brutal price war over crude oil.

    What's behind Saudi Arabia's oil price war with Russia?

    Itís about beyond 2024. The justices picked under Biden will be the ones deciding constitutionality of the law. Biden isnít arguing the constitutional question of itójust how it will be paid for. His justices will be less concerned with fiscal constraints and only that constructional question. If Biden leaves office in 2024 and a new president comes in and gets it passed to law, his justices will be much better about it than Trumpís.

    That's an excellent point. One has to think long-term in politics.
