Covid-19 Conversation: Florida Bad News?

Today’s data (thanks to the Miami Herald) show a there is clear recent rising/reversing trends in the number of infections (hugely underestimated) in FL and the number of deaths in FL.

This is the wrong time to open. Better to tighten down, stay at home, face masks, distancing for the coming weeks or we will get hit again in two or three weeks.


Healthcare, which benefits millions of people during the COVID-19 pandemic, is not needed, according to the President of the United States. Totally irrational and crazy at the least.

The Ryan Budget Is Health Care Fiction, Not Reform

Nothing like cutting back on health care spending of the government this way.

…the Congressional Budget Office looked at Ryan’s plan, they said it would make Medicare more expensive for seniors, not less. The reason the deficit goes down is because seniors are paying 70 percent of the cost of their insurance out-of-pocket rather than 30 percent. But that’s not sustainable: We’ve just taken the government’s medical-costs problem and pushed it onto families.
