#NotDying4WallStreet goes viral as progressives accuse Trump of putting corporate profits over public health

Mod: Apparently your continued and healthy existence is not the top priority right now in Washington.

#NotDying4WallStreet goes viral as progressives accuse Trump of putting corporate profits over public health (Raw Story link): As President Donald Trump and business elites suggest the U.S. public should go back to work in the midst of the worsening coronavirus pandemic, the Twitter hashtag #NotDying4WallStreet went viral late Monday as progressives made clear they are not willing to jeopardize their own or their community’s health to protect corporate profits.

“If we have to rent strike, general strike, whatever has to happen, we will not die for oligarchs’ quarterly profit margin,” tweeted progressive radio host Benjamin Dixon. “This system crashes without our participation. But they cannot force us to participate at the expense of our lives.”

The hashtag erupted after Trump signaled Monday that he could move as early as next week to lift federal social distancing guidelines and encourage some people to return to work—even as the number of coronavirus cases in the United States continues to grow and the death toll rises. “America will again and soon be open for business. Very soon. A lot sooner than three or four months that somebody was suggesting,” Trump said during a press briefing Monday evening, ignoring dire warnings from health officials both within and outside of his administration.

Author and activist Eric Blanc wrote in Jacobin on Monday that “we have now reached the point where, according to some experts, only a five-week national lockdown can avoid a public health catastrophe.”

“Yet the Wall Street Journal and the Lloyd Blankfeins of the world are proposing the exact opposite: ending lockdowns rather than extending them,” wrote Blanc. “Even the limited governmental measures taken so far are apparently too much for Wall Street to stomach.”

“Unless we take action, Wall Street may get its way,” Blanc added. “Stopping Trump from scrapping our existing public health measures is literally a matter of life and death. We need to do everything possible to force the White House and its corporate backers to take the urgent measures that experts agree are necessary to prevent a public health catastrophe. Our lives are on the line.”

  2. The Party of Life Embraces Trump’s Death Cult

    We’ve skipped over any nuanced discussion of economic considerations, straight to the part where Republicans rationalize letting a million or so people die to fix the economy.

  10. Another day and another day: Donald Trump has not left the White House to see first hand what's going on in the country. No visit to see first responders or ER docs or nurses. No visit to a small business that's repurposing to help the cause. King in the Ivory Tower.

  11. It will be much harder to enforce even statewide lockdowns if the president is saying it’s safe to go back to work.

    Perhaps there has been a more irresponsible presidential decision in U.S. history, but I’m not sure what it is.

  13. Biden Unloads On Trump For Putting The Stock Market Before American Lives

    In a tweet, Biden said, “Let me be very clear: No one is expendable. No matter your age, race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or disability.”

    “No life is worth losing to add one more point to the Dow,” he added.

    We will not put a dollar figure on human life.

    We can have a public health strategy that is consistent with an economic one.

    No one should be talking about social darwinism for the sake of the stock market.

  15. New Poll Shows Biden Trouncing Trump In 300 Swing Counties Across America 😎

    A new poll shows that in key swing counties that will decide the Electoral College winner in the upcoming general election, former Vice President Joe Biden is trouncing Donald Trump

    But for the president, a more troubling piece of data from the survey is that Biden leads by a whopping nine percentage points in 300 swing counties across America.

    “The poll results suggest Biden may actually be starting out with an advantage in crucial swing areas of the country,” he added. The Electoral College, not popular vote, should be the focus

    At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how large or small Biden’s national popular vote margin is as long as he performs well in regions of the country that decide the Electoral College winner

  16. ‘Oligarchs are running the White House’: Trump called Wall Street just before ‘back to work’ remarks

    President Donald Trump hosted a private conference call Tuesday morning with several billionaire Wall Street and hedge fund titans just hours before the president said he hopes to “have the country opened up” and “get people back to work” by Easter—even as the coronavirus pandemic worsens.

    Among the most prominent executives on the call—which was joined by Vice President Mike Pence—were Ken Griffin, billionaire CEO of Citadel; Stephen Schwarzman, billionaire CEO of the Blackstone Group; and Paul Tudor Jones, billionaire co-founder of Just Capital. The firms represented on the Tuesday morning call collectively manage hundreds of billions of dollars in assets.

  17. Trump would willingly step over our dead bodies to get his way. He should be nominated for an equivalent to a World Court Trial and subpoenaed for US Crimes Against Humanity or whatever violations fit. Nothing would guarantee a faster US economic crash than returning to work & further spreading the virus. What's the point of crashing our hospitals & medical staff before their minimus safety equipment supply is solved ? Trump's defense against accountability for the crisis he created is to create a more extreme crisis so people are overwhelmed.

    One answer: help locally - order food from a to-go business with local restaurant, (like Rod's Grill). to help keep it open or help friends who have just lost their job. Example Bring catfood to someone who otherwise can't feed their animal. Around me I see small acts of kindness to cancel out Trump's malignancy. Soaring gun sales may stop the fear of potential home invasions in Arcadia but can't stop the Recession or CoV risk spread by large numbers of LAX employees in overcrowded LAX shuttles. One market chain will now protect cashiers by installing a plastic shield between cashiers
    and customers.

    A question: Does anyone know if the Trillions bill just passed by the Senate kept the part requiring national elections
    to use paper ballots ? That was importantly intended to allow the November election to proceed.

  19. Economists say Trump's coronavirus reopening plan is dead wrong

    President Trump's proposal to get business around the country back open by Easter Sunday, April 12, will do more harm to the economy if the coronavirus outbreak has not been contained, economists say. Such a plan would sow uncertainty in markets and among customers and business owners and make the recession longer and harsher.

    Threat level: "We are still significantly behind the curve in containing coronavirus and reopening the economy for political expediency in the middle of a pandemic, to which no has has an immunity, is absolutely mindless," Bernard Baumohl, chief global economist at the Economic Outlook Group, tells Axios.

    "It will only delay a full economic recovery."

    On the other side: A smattering of business owners and asset managers backed Trump's plan to push forward with lifting the lockdowns sooner than later.

    David Neeleman, founder of JetBlue and WestJet, told Bloomberg that the suffering from a major economic downturn would outweigh the damage from the disease.

    "If we go back to work and the disease continues to spread not only will people die and the 20% of our economy dedicated to health care be overwhelmed, but people won't have the confidence to resume normal activity."

  27. T-rump's gonna have an unlimited negative Legacy. Think about all the lies, the misleading statements, the name calling, calling the media “the enemy of the people” just like Hitler, and Stalin. The pay offs of porn stars, the insults of a goldstar family, and a disabled reporter. The name calling of political rivals. The pardons for Arpio, and Blagovich. His ongoing financial relationship with Putin, including the help he received from him in his election(s). Trump will be remembered as THE WORST PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY!
