COVID-19 government spending short-sighted

The money that is borrowed today has to be paid back tomorrow and the hardship of sky-high taxes, in my opinion, will put many more people in dire straights.

While the government is spending billions of dollars to help those who have lost their income, we must realize that this is only a stop-gap measure.

It can only go on for a short period of time. Sooner or later, virus or not, people have to go back to work.

In my opinion, the fear that the health care system is overwhelmed can be mitigated by placing respirators into private homes for those who need them.

Let's allow restaurants to open if they can serve food by spacing out the tables available.

Tennis courts and golf courses need not to be closed.

Fitness centers might have to let only a limited number of people at any given time.

Wearing cotton or other gloves when shopping should be mandatory as well as temperature checks at the door.

There are still too many people touching surfaces that might be contaminated.

The money that is borrowed today has to be paid back tomorrow and the hardship of sky-high taxes, in my opinion, will put many more people in dire straights.
