Expect wild overreaction, posturing and unintended consequences, from politicians
While the USA and rest of the world goes through a crisis, we are seeing politicians use it to advance their careers. Many will vie with each other to show over-the-top rage, they will advance bills which will have the opposite effect to that which is claimed. The fact is that in any crisis, some people, or groups, will win or lose unfairly. No set of rules and regulations can be so finely nuanced as to create a fair and equitable world. We need to accept this and move on. So let's simply ignore much of what the politicians say.
