Most business loans require owners to purchase insurance to cover losses incurred during an EMERGENCY. Most owners have been paying these premiums as long as they have been in business. If no one declares an EMERGENCY, the Insurers will refuse to pay. Explains why so many Governors are reluctant to Declare an Emergency

You're saying the governors are reluctant to put the insurers at a disadvantage, so they don't declare an emergency?
To save THE INSURANCE COMPANIES??!!


Doesn't apply to Mississippi, anyway, since an emergency was declared here on Mar 14th.

Unfortunately, Mississippi is a poor state and most people in it can not afford to be without an income for months at a time. They need to get back to work to feed their families, pay house payments, car payments, etc.

At some point the damage from not being able to support your family outweighs the risk of Covid-19. I get it, some people are getting sick and some are dying, but the majority of people recover. We cannot continue to decimate our economy for a virus with a 98+ percent recovery rate.

Have you read reports from those who have had the disease? We seem to have some who die, some who are completely without symptoms (do they ever test negative?), and others who recover but say it was the worst 3 weeks of their lives.

I don't know about you, but I don't want to struggle to breathe for three weeks, fever, hallucinations, forced to lay on my stomach most of the day and night to ward off pneumonia, and just the general fear of death. I don't want to go through that just so the local flower shop doesn't go out of business.

The correct answer is that no one should be forced to make this choice - my financial future or my health. Government should be providing long term payments so people don't lose everything and feel like they need to go to work even if they're sick or might get sick.

Mississippi isn't a poor state though. People run this narrative and don't pay attention to the % of the state isn't poor= 80%.

It doesn't make much difference, since about 80% (I just made that figure up) of families in America live from paycheck to paycheck. In that regard Mississippi is just like every other state.
The stimulus check was a wonderful move and the extension of unemployment benefits will help, too. So it's not like the government is not doing anything. In fact, the 1200 stimulus check went a lot further in Mississippi than it did in San Francisco, so having a low COL worked in our favor.

I'm not dismissing the fact there is a virus that is killing some people, however, the recovery rate is astronomically high and we have basically crippled the economy because of it. We can't stay locked down forever. I think you are taking this too lightly. It isn't just the local flower shop that may go out of business... it is small and medium size businesses throughout the country at risk of never reopening. Those are jobs lost.

There is a link between unemployment and a reduced mortality rate as well, due to a number of factors such as not being able to afford healthcare, food, etc. People will die either way.

This will sound crazy to people who don't realize what is happening, but I am OK with that. I am not willing to trade my freedoms or live in media driven fear for a false sense of security over a virus blown way out of proportion.

Also, regarding what you said about the Government providing long term payments, who is going to pay for it? I don't even think the economic stimulus package is good for the country. Sure, it may provide a little help for people, but that $1200 goes fast when you are not working. It may be the nail in the coffin actually. Remember, that money has to come from somewhere and the national debt is already too far gone to fix.

LOL, is this your solution? That gives away your true intentions.

People have been making the choice between success and health since the beginning of time. Grow up.
