  • Look. I know they are looking for how to restart the economy, but I hope to god these CEO's know to trust the scientist and don't **** this up.
  • It's not the CEOs you should be worried about.
  • Yeah. It's the politicians who are in charge. Thankfully most of the decisions will be made by state governments, not the White House.
  • I know that, I just hope they don't just give into these politicians.
  • It is 100% the CEO's you should worry about.
  • <deleted comment moved >
  • Are you serious!? These CEOs do nothing but science. They make a living out of it.
  • It's just political cover to push the opening timeline ahead. The ultimate decision will be "made" by the president and his decidedly non-expert committee. Of course he can't force states to ignore the science and let up on the lockdown early... Unless he wants a constitutional crisis, which he might. He doesn't seem to care about the health of the public, the Constitution, the economy — he just knows there's an election in November.
  • Trump sure does love his stupid committees. He can put together as many committees as he wants, but he is the problem. Incompetent, corrupt buffoon without a single redeeming quality. Rotten to his core.
  • He likes committees, his predecessor preferred czars for everything. Not sure what's better - a group of different people or one person with almost unlimited power accountable to no one. Or maybe it doesn't matter because there should be neither
  • Very happy to hear there will be a group of such diverse talent across industries to assist in lending their expertise and getting our country back on its feet
  • And...
    ... apparently most of them knew nothing about this until they saw it on TV Surprise!
  • I mean they could start by paying their fair share of tax, that'd probably help out a bit.
