The incidence of coronavirus again begins to increase in the south and west, which leads to the fact that daily morbidity figures in the United States return to the north of 30 thousand, and revive the fears that the subsequent economic devastation, not to mention the consistently higher mortality rates, will us longer than the myth of the V-shaped restoration predicted.
The conversation about another incentive bill seems to have disappeared as the Democrats switched their efforts to infrastructure, a problem that is doomed to a lot of scrap from the beginning of Trump’s term, as it quickly became apparent that any widespread bipartisan cooperation would never be successful in such a warlike a polarized atmosphere, for fear that President Trump will indeed be able to take out a loan for something uniquely positive, such as rebuilding old bridges, airports and roads.
