    Pretty sure China has been pursuing a more aggressive quarantine policy than the USA has so far. If misrepresentation is going on, wonder if it's from the WHO or the Chinese gov't.

    Spoke with an old home stay student of ours. He lives in Beijing. Been quarantined for 6 weeks.

    China’s numbers:
    A) Cannot be trusted
    B) Will rebound as people return to work.

    However, their efforts at stopping the virus are unparalleled in history. They have done an excellent job at slowing the spread.

    They’re now focused on getting the economy back on line which makes their reporting even more dubious.

    as much as I would like some tax break like this, it's something around 35% (give or take a bit) of the governments tax levy....that money is going to have to come from somewhere, or else the deficit is going to explode even more than it has.

    Our previous President added more to the deficit than all other Presidents combined... deficit spending is a ticking time bomb. President Trump is not much better. Both parties are out of control. Only difference is social issues.

    I like the F you to China idea though..

    Obama did walk into the office with another Vietnam going on, one that was 18 yrs instead of 7. Plus the economy that was one of the worst in all time.

    If we do fuk china on debt they would stop exports to the US......the would cripple some many companies

    The national debt, Dump is half of what Oblama lama added...https://www.thebalance.com/us-debt-b...ercent-3306296

    I like the BS Donny has tossed china's way.....Someone had to stand up and do something.

    China needs our consumers and this market. You can only subsidize your mercantilism for so long until it implodes. Iím glad that we are addressing our trade imbalance in a meaningful way.

    He inherited that real estate bubble. Still waiting for those shovel ready jobs... throwing nearly a trillion at it didn’t help much if any. I wish President Trump would learn from that. We will recover without stimulus bills. Cut tax rates even further... this is a great time to get that done.

    It’s about time we yanked China’s chain. We cut them off, it might hurt for a bit, but it would bring real jobs back home. We’d be better off in the long run. We’ve already regained our energy independence, we need to get away from the service economy now.

    Do you know what an f-150 would cost if it was built 100% in the us...??

    There's no easy decisions in times like this. For anyone manning that job

    you’re not in the same way that BT is (he owns his owns business).

    I work in production lol - you’re a w2 employee. WC is paid to and handled by c&c or EP (or whatever payroll company) by the studio (or production company if it’s an indie)
