This is what he said…
Rush Limbaugh went onto his talkshow recently and stated that “the economic shutdown is unsustainable.” He also pointed out that the people raising hostility towards the reopening of the economy was unwarranted.
He said, “We simply cannot — with no end in sight — go on like this. We cannot be in the midst of this economy being shut down with no end in sight.”
“It’s not gonna work. Now, they can tell us, ‘Well, we think in two weeks we’ll be able to relax things,’ and then those two weeks go by and they can’t. They’ll say, ‘Oh, give us another two weeks,’ because they think that we can live with waiting an additional two weeks every two weeks.”
“Right now all of the talk is about medical. All the talk is about the horrible medical statistics, predictions, models, all the talk is apocalyptic when we’re discussing the virus. It’s all apocalyptic. It’s all end of the world. It’s all end of this. It’s all death. It’s all new numbers, 2.2 million, 240,000.”
“Meanwhile, everybody’s at home, the economy shut down, everybody realizes this can’t go on, but there is this degree of uncertainty as to when this is gonna end. It cannot go on like this. At some point, folks, we as a country are gonna have to answer a question: How much of the economy do we let drift toward Great Depression status before we stop it?”
Limbaugh noted that Democrats were chastising people raising the economic question by saying they are caring more about “lives versus money” when it’s really “lives versus lives.”
The economy needs to be address or more people will die from not only the virus, but also because of an economic disaster. Read the full story here.
