  29. 29. The Indy Politics Informal COVID-19 Questionnaire 29 / 36 # RESPONSES DATE 1 People (media and other politicians) should stop being political and trying to assign blame for a deadly virus and just try to focus on the problem. 4/2/2020 6:10 PM 2 China should be held responsible. 4/2/2020 1:30 PM 3 It will be worse before it gets better... Washington can’t spend its way out this! 4/2/2020 1:08 PM 4 Republicans who still stand for what being a Republican used to stand for have an obligation to criticize Trump loud and clear. I'm an independent who votes R solidly 80% of the time, and the Rs have folded like the cheapest of cheap suits, so I look for my percentage support to drop precipitously at the national level. I still have hope for the party at the state level as long as people like Governor Holcomb are still in charge. The extreme left is crazy, and the extreme right is crazy dangerous. That's how I see it. 4/2/2020 12:00 PM 5 God bless Abdul. 4/2/2020 11:23 AM 6 If we ever needed another FDR, Truman, or Reagan in the White House, it's now. If the daily briefing comes on and Dr. Fauci's not up there, I change the channel or walk out of the room. The press corps should, too. Holcomb is handling this well at the state level, but he's been dealt a lousy hand just like all 49 of his fellow governors. A friend of mine lost her father to COVID-19 last night. This is all too real. 4/2/2020 10:40 AM 7 Personal opinion - I'm one of those who think that we didn't need to wreck the entire economy for the fear of the virus. This in not Chernobyl, or the plague. How many were shot or killed in Marion County over the last few years and we don't do a shutdown of certain zip codes. What about #s for traffic accidents, cancer, and yes, the flu? Many of the kids would have been better cared for staying in school. Won't be surprised if domestic violence goes up. We could have asked those at higher risk to quarantine themselves instead of shutdown the city, state, and country. $2 trillion in debt is probably just the first installment. We can't survive the debt. I've been saying "the Deplorables want their country back - let's get back to work". I think Trump's true instincts for closing borders and limiting some but he's being advised to do more by those around him to seem like he cares more and is taking care of the country. Not to be heartless that there have been deaths which is hard on families. Get beyond the red tape and the trial meds out there. My worry is how do we come out of this. What company or state wants to be the one "who doesn't care" and starts back up, then why isn't everything going to be discounted or free for how long?! We didn't need to worry about Bernie or Biden getting elected. In a month, we crashed our country over fear of a virus. "Hoosier Up" and let's stop hunkering down. Rosie the Riveter went to work, she didn't stay home! 4/2/2020 9:30 AM 8 Iam thankful for r leadership. stay safe an healthy 4/2/2020 9:21 AM 9 What happens in two more weeks when all the unemployed’s payments in arrears are distributed and people start freaking out. I think our nation is struggling to form any kind of consensus and most people continue to live in insulated bubble cultures rather than truly being integrated and collaborative. 4/2/2020 9:10 AM 10 Young people must get back to work, or what's the point of saving ourselves if we lose the economy to sustain us. I'm retired, so staying home is not a huge burden. But most people have to work to stay alive, and they aren't dying of the virus. 4/2/2020 9:04 AM 11 Federal gov't fails: national stay-at-home orders, testing, PPE supplies, organization and planning. No respect for Pence-Trump's lapdog.Hope Holcomb stays away from Washington Republicans and does what's best for IN 4/2/2020 8:46 AM 12 Alcohol won't ward off COVID19, but it can't hurt. 4/2/2020 8:43 AM 13 COVID-19 impact on economy is huge and it may take several years to recover. 4/2/2020 8:36 AM 14 Don’t think the State should be on a mandatory quarantine. Also upset with Holcomb about his comments to people about not paying their rent. We are landlords with 10 tenants and would be hurt if our tenants didn’t pay monthly rent. Holcomb should stay out of this issue. 4/2/2020 8:18 AM 15 The Democratic candidate for governor offers very little. He comes up with plans after an emergency is already happening. Holcomb's leadership speaks for itself, and he deserves another four years. Also, the ISTA wanted the state to dip into its reserves to increase teacher pay this session - before arranging for a long term, sustainable funding plan. Now that covid 19 4/2/2020 7:56 AM
  30. 30. The Indy Politics Informal COVID-19 Questionnaire 30 / 36 has hit, we will need the money we have in reserve! A long term plan to raise teacher pay is good, but raiding the state surplus was always a bad idea! 16 Politicians and health officials are being negligent in their communication about covid-19. They are misrepresenting the facts by reaching conclusions based only on those having been tested when we know many have no symptoms and are not being tested. They are using fear by misrepresenting facts in order to gain compliance with stay at home orders. And last time I checked, you don't have to be an epidemiologist to do basic math. People with covid-19 who aren't tested don't go into the denominator for any calculations. Meaning the "death rate" being bandied about is far higher than reality. Politicians and health officials should be much more clear about that fact. 4/2/2020 7:53 AM 17 Wish Holcomb would get to point in daily briefings. I like the guy a lot but he buries the lead every day. Give us the meat and potatoes then talk about the garnish. 4/2/2020 7:48 AM 18 I love listening to Abdul slap down whiny Rob Kendall on the radio! 4/2/2020 7:47 AM 19 It will be interesting to see if the governing Republicans will actually use any of my tax money that they have squirreled away for emergencies like this, or brag about protecting our reserves in trying times. 4/2/2020 7:18 AM 20 #2 is newspapers on line 4/2/2020 7:04 AM 21 BEAT TRUMP..... 4/2/2020 6:50 AM 22 Should put age in this survey, influences answers . I am in 70s and never seen a issue like this in all my life so I am very concerned.. 4/2/2020 6:40 AM 23 Inability to trust news (nationally). The bias on both sides makes it nearly impossible to know the truth. I believe I dismissed the magnitude of the potential problem because the shameless "Breaking News" tagline is brutally used that who the hell pays attention. I watch the MSNBC talking heads for amusement purposes mostly and they use "Breaking News" taglines probably 20 times a day per the 365 days of the year. 4/2/2020 12:18 AM 24 Pot should be legal. 4/1/2020 11:56 PM 25 Hearing grumblings that the definition of "essential" is too broad and a very high percentage of workers are still at it. Especially in manufacturing and labor sectors. With high percentages of people still in the workforce, we are not achieving the social distancing that will "flatten the curve". Making the sacrifices of those who HAVE shut their businesses down even more depressing. 4/1/2020 11:04 PM 26 Git ‘er done! 4/1/2020 10:42 PM 27 Lots. 4/1/2020 10:30 PM 28 No 4/1/2020 10:23 PM 29 Would have been interesting to ask what business segments people worked in and if their business is thriving it barely surviving. 4/1/2020 10:20 PM 30 It is scary how kids to late 20’s are not taking this serious 4/1/2020 10:03 PM 31 weaker business will be filtered out on the comeback, of course all pandemic plans will be revisited, am wary of basic freedoms being legislated in the future in the name of public safety 4/1/2020 9:56 PM 32 . 4/1/2020 9:56 PM 33 People need to stay home and enjoy life for the next 15 to 30 days so we can all live a healthy life. My God bless our leaders and the front line medical professionals. God bless America! 4/1/2020 9:43 PM 34 This is either going to be really bad, or the biggest overreaction in history. 4/1/2020 9:40 PM 35 The hysteria created by the media has not been proportional to the current situation. Never have I seen a more complex topic be analyzed so casually by people who know nothing about the science behind it. Every reporter is now an expert on this in their minds. I'm not trying to will it away, or in denial about it. But I'm also not conceding that James Briggs or John Russell know anything more about what is the right response or not than me, someone who admittedly doesn't have any expertise here. WH reporter antics in the press room have been absurd. Just check out The Hill column by Jeff McCall (from DePauw). Even locally, some of the headlines have been really sloppy. I respect the IBJ, but when their headline says, "Holcomb orders 4/1/2020 9:37 PM
  31. 31. The Indy Politics Informal COVID-19 Questionnaire 31 / 36 restaurants and bars to close" that is incomplete. Another clause is needed to accurately reflect what he did do. I'm not saying that they're trying to screw Holcomb there, but it's an irresponsible headline because many people won't click to the full story. I have gotten most of my "news" on this issue from watching the press conferences because the commentary from reporters on social media has been unreliable. Did Holcomb really cut a press conference short after 10 questions or was Ryan Martin just too slow to get his question asked? Is the Star reliable after the post an old photo of a press conference held pre-social distancing and then decide to question whether the governor should hold press conferences? Give me a break. Fortunately, I don't have to rely on the media because I can watch the Holcomb and POTUS press conferences. 36 I'm frustrated (nice word) with those who are ignoring the recommendations to stay home. These people should be fined. And if minors are ignoring it, their parents should be fined. Businesses have been ordered to close and small businesses are suffering. Individuals should be held to the same standard. This is going to last a lot longer than it need to because of these knuckleheads who refuse to follow the rules made to save lives. 4/1/2020 9:31 PM 37 so sick of watching Nancy Pelosi politicize Corona Virus for political purposes 4/1/2020 9:19 PM 38 I fear that the damage already done will not be solved before the end of 2020. The longer the emergency continues, the longer the recovery. Six more months of this is, in my view, going to mean a recovery period measured in years, not months. 4/1/2020 9:17 PM 39 Stay the f$&k home! 4/1/2020 9:15 PM 40 not sure this is worth wrecking the entire economy over. the people most hurt are the middle class working men and women who have been laid off and not all will be hired back. 4/1/2020 9:15 PM 41 Keep up the good work, Abdul! 4/1/2020 9:13 PM 42 Trump is useless. His ego made us miss the ball on the virus. TLTL! 4/1/2020 9:12 PM 43 You should ask State officials about their plans for the $2.6 Billion in Federal funds coming to Indiana. Indianapolis is the only city that automatically qualifies to receive funds (45%)but the rest of the money (55%) is at the states discretion. 4/1/2020 9:10 PM 44 Wouldn't want my name attached to this, but I just can't get worked up about a large number of 80+year olds facing their demise due to CV-19,. In the immortal words of Gilda Radner-"If it's not one thing , it's another" 4/1/2020 7:52 PM 45 I wish there could be a positive spin on what is happening in our world. Everything on the media is doom, gloom or lies. So exhausting 4/1/2020 6:52 PM 46 The definition of essential jobs should be more narrow. I work for a landscapelawn Care company, we are considered essential. I am thankful that I am able to work and provide for my family, but what we are doing is not essential in helping "flatten the curve" or essential to critical infrastructure. I will happily continue to work and feel a little guilty because a lot of people are truly sacrificing. Of course, taking time off to help "flatten the curve" would not be a popular move with my employers. 4/1/2020 6:04 PM 47 Too much pork in relief bill. I wish Trump had kept his threat early on to not sign another one of those massive bills. 4/1/2020 5:59 PM 48 Under the radar / wheeler mission is has Reduced staff that has worked With out days off sleeping - bathing - feeding - laundry - homeless- no govt money - 856 men women and children .. they have no where to go during the day - please help 4/1/2020 4:48 PM 49 Through friends I have received texts from nurses and ER staff that are terrified of what they’re seeing. They need help. They are becoming very emotional and are losing their grip emotionally to deal with these cases. Is there any reason that the Indiana military groups cannot help the medical staff in hospitals? They need support now! Could we employ the school nurses? The isolation pits are everywhere on floors on hospitals. Nurses are not able to continue with this pressure. Could we bring home troops to help us here? Help us in US. 4/1/2020 3:18 PM 50 Lot of businesses will operate diff coming out of this, but so will Govt, especially courts 4/1/2020 3:06 PM 51 Stay safe 4/1/2020 12:12 PM 52 Legalize, legalize ,legalize Canabis 4/1/2020 11:58 AM
  32. 32. The Indy Politics Informal COVID-19 Questionnaire 32 / 36 53 I'm more concerned that the economic impact of the pandemic will last far longer than the health impact. 4/1/2020 11:31 AM 54 Our Gov. Eric Holcomb goes out of his was for the BOOZERS who wants to remain DRUNK. But us Cannabis USERS BE DAMNED!!! THE HELL WITH HOLCOMB!!! 4/1/2020 10:31 AM 55 I've been healthcare for 34 years, and this pandemic has us down on our knees.. Just praying to get through the next few weeks. 4/1/2020 10:29 AM 56 It seems the media would rather cause panic and irrational behavior than report the facts. And this includes the local media. Much of what we see from the politicians on both sides of the aisle seems to include a lot of political posturing. 4/1/2020 10:27 AM 57 If you have any interest in determining why Full Beauty Brands thinks that delivering clothes is essential, I would appreciate you looking into it. I think that the order issued was vague enough to allow the claim, assuming businesses would be responsible enough to know what is essential and what isn't. 4/1/2020 10:24 AM 58 We need to capitalize on producing items in IN and the US, as a result of this crisis, to become less dependant upon China! 4/1/2020 9:57 AM 59 cant believe the sneaky way the thieves in the general assembly pushed last minute crap through the sausage making process.. makes me long for brian bosma to be speaker 4/1/2020 9:34 AM 60 This emergency could be an opportunity to make real changes and reforms, but I don't believe any level of government has the wisdom or courage to do so. 4/1/2020 9:34 AM 61 Overall, I fear the cure is more costly than the disease. Too many layers to detail further. 4/1/2020 9:21 AM 62 We still have way too many people moving about. Too many waivers being given to companies who aren’t really essential (Draper in Spiceland). I work for the State in a correctional facility. We are making contingency plans beyond what the general public could even fathom in preparing for the surge. Gov. Holcomb and his staff are supportive of corrections and understands the challenges we face when not confronted with a pandemic. I have nearly 25 years in state service and this is the first Governor I feel has truly supported the rehabilitation of offenders. Thank for reading my ramblings! 4/1/2020 9:03 AM 63 As a D I am satisfied with Gov Holcomb's leadership and think that thought I don't agree with his every decision he is fair and thoughtful ... however the super majorities in both chambers have broken our legislative process. I understand I'm a center left D in an R state but I think anyone truly looking at it objectively realizes the longterm health of our state and economy (and maybe I'm guilty of looking at this through the lens of Central Indiana) is jeopardized by the type of circus we saw at the end of the last session. Thank God they are out of session in the middle of this public health emergency. 4/1/2020 8:46 AM 64 Federally, I do not believe that any current presidential candidate is best to handle a crisis of this magnitude. In Indiana, I think that Governor Holcomb is doing a fair job, but that he should do more to help Hoosiers economically, such as suspending mortgage/rent payments and assisting with small business funding. 4/1/2020 8:32 AM 65 INDOT sent out a promotional video yesterday touting construction progress on I-69 in Martinsville. The drone photos in the video showed terrible examples of "essential work" being done with NO social distancing of the employees doing the work. I was disgusted that one of the governor's agencies was so tone deaf to the crisis, just so they could brag about I-69. Find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljfw5x-1PRg&feature=youtu.be 4/1/2020 8:02 AM 66 Every elected official in the state, from town councilors to the governor are under a lot of pressure. This isn’t something that we can just pick up the phone and call about how it was handled in the past. Our decisions during this time will define who we are, we will be remembered for them. 4/1/2020 7:42 AM 67 I don’t think Trump should be re-elected, but I’d be happy to see just about any other Republican take his place. 4/1/2020 7:16 AM 68 I think overall our President, Vice President, and Governor are doing a good job addressing this. Sure, they might not always make the right decision or say something they shouldn't, but leadership requires tough decisions. It's easy to sit in the stadium and yell from afar, its harder when you are the one standing with the clipboard in hand and making the final decision. 4/1/2020 7:13 AM
  33. 33. The Indy Politics Informal COVID-19 Questionnaire 33 / 36 Keyboard warriors need to tone it down a bit and let the process play out, sure, it's tough, but I trust my leadership to get us through this. 69 I am an association representative in the travel industry. I had to terminate 5 employees and furlough 7 more. We had reserves and I'm still going to have to borrow money with these and other drastic cuts. I think this will forever change our world and I'm not sure people fully understand the ripple effects. Our GDP is 80% dependent on consumer behavior? Think about it. We just told everyone to hoard toilet paper and stay home. We had to -- not arguing that. It's just how do you recover from 12 weeks of it? It's heartbreaking. 4/1/2020 7:07 AM 70 My wife works in healthcare and I am in education. 4/1/2020 6:36 AM 71 I have more confidence in my fellow citizens than our governor. I care for my parents in their 80's I am 60 and my husband is 72. I am capable of keeping us well without tanking the economy for my kids and grand kids I also believe this was intentional on China's part and we should eliminate most of the debt we owe them. . 4/1/2020 6:36 AM 72 I would like to pay my federal and state tax bill on time if they offered a 20% instead of a stimulas check of which will never see my mailbox. 4/1/2020 6:07 AM 73 The lack of media coverage of any positive developments - such as the anti-malaria drug regiment and it’s overwhelming success - is appalling. The difference is in the coverage of this “epidemic” and the swine flu of Obama’s administration is also telling. The news media should be held accountable for their blatant bias in the “pandemic” coverage. This is why, despite spending hours each day consuming news, I have cancelled all of my “news” subscriptions. 4/1/2020 6:05 AM 74 The health departments did not do well in tracking the initial cases and sharing where the cases had been to... thus potentially accelerating the spread. Saying someone in this county is not sufficient. Saying someone in this county visited these locations at these dates/times would have helped to identify possible transmissions earlier. 4/1/2020 5:41 AM 75 I know too many people that have contracted this to be completely chill, I am being furloughed next week. But we are in a good financial position, healthy millennials and healthy. Hoping for the best! 4/1/2020 5:23 AM 76 Essential business should be more strictly defined 4/1/2020 5:22 AM 77 Planes, ships, automobiles and trains should be shut down like 2 months ago. 4/1/2020 3:38 AM 78 These are the only surveys that I get to vote in that includes republicans and democrats. Thanks for sharing. 4/1/2020 3:23 AM 79 Why do we not hear more in national media about why People’s Republic of China and WHO’s negligence that got the entire planet in this mess? 4/1/2020 1:43 AM 80 I think if the President had done a better job (not fired the pandemic team, took advice from prior presidents on pandemic management, etc) then the states wouldn’t have such a big problem to solve. Also it turns my stomach that the President thinks Governors need to be nice to him and kiss up to him, to get relief supplies. 4/1/2020 1:07 AM 81 we need more coverage of all the money government is conjuring up. the coming inflation bubble scares me more than the wuhan flu. 4/1/2020 1:04 AM 82 nope 4/1/2020 12:15 AM 83 We’d ‘flatten the curve’ quicker if the public would abide by the stay at home order. Stay at home! 3/31/2020 11:56 PM 84 Holcomb needs to formally extend our stay at home until April 30. And the list of essential businesses is too big. I want us back to work. But not at the cost of +200,000 lives. 3/31/2020 11:53 PM 85 What liberties will be taken away at the mere threat of another potential pandemic in the future? We are walking a very fine line. A precedent may be developing. 3/31/2020 11:49 PM 86 Vocal Republicans and conservatives might want to check with like minded healthcare workers before running their mouths. Holcomb is not a leader. Lastly, rather than handing out money we don’t have why didn’t Congress stop taking the money for do have? 3/31/2020 11:45 PM 87 I think that, legally, some of the executive orders we’ve seen have been questionable at best. I’d like to see an experts breakdown on the Constitutionality of a lot of these measures. 3/31/2020 11:44 PM
  34. 34. The Indy Politics Informal COVID-19 Questionnaire 34 / 36 88 No 3/31/2020 11:40 PM 89 The media has jumped on this to go after Trump. Nothing else has worked, and this is one of their last shots to keep him from being reelected. 3/31/2020 11:21 PM 90 IN educational system needs to be drastically improved. 3/31/2020 11:19 PM 91 Thanks! 3/31/2020 11:18 PM 92 Rob, chicks, Abdul, Hammer and Tony to govern the state! Seriously! p.s. Nigel never shows up, or I would have included him. 3/31/2020 11:15 PM 93 State needs to do more to help local hospitals get proper PPE and testing. My spouse is a RN on a Indianapolis ICU and she does not have enough PPE supplies or tests to properly handle the situation at hand and it is only beginning. 3/31/2020 11:11 PM 94 Dr. Box and Dr. Fauci should run the world. 3/31/2020 11:09 PM 95 It is tiresome to read comments online, mainly on IndyStar stories, where the same people bash Holcomb on every issue. Similarly, the people that defend Trump will defend every step - and his detractors will always be harsh. I get it, media is often biased, the public who bother to post comments are very partisan. It makes it difficult to find balanced conversation. Dad that covid-19 is a partisan issue. 3/31/2020 11:08 PM 96 I do think there will be a lot of businesses that will not survive. Some of them will fail right away, but others will try to hold on and fail eventually, even years from now. 3/31/2020 11:02 PM 97 Need to test serology for those immune not close down the entire state 3/31/2020 11:00 PM 98 GOP locally is weak and not listening to Indy area conservatives. Evidence by local elections not being funded or fought. 3/31/2020 10:57 PM 99 The best possible outcome of this disaster is that it will kill globalism. 3/31/2020 10:55 PM 100 I hope that Trump's negligence and incompetence don't completely undermine the pro-active efforts of Holcomb. 3/31/2020 10:55 PM 101 None. 3/31/2020 10:55 PM 102 Holcomb is the worst governor we’ve had in a long time. This public health crisis just proves how little this guy cares about the Hoosier people. He cannot commit to anything. He makes no sense. He has got to go. 3/31/2020 10:50 PM 103 While we can attempt to educate ignorance, we are losing the battle against stupid. There are no real consequences for these people. 3/31/2020 10:44 PM 104 I wish news outlets would stop sensationalizing this pandemic through fear and negativity. I am tired of negativity. How the hell does it make any sense that some state officials advocating to release inmates from prisons, but also talking about arresting people for up to 90 days for violating the stay at home order? 3/31/2020 10:44 PM 105 President Trump has been a pleasant surprise. I will vote for him this time. 3/31/2020 10:37 PM 106 Stay healthy Abdul. Indy needs you pestering the knotheads in government. 3/31/2020 10:37 PM 107 The mayor of Indianapolis and the city council are a joke. They do not care about the people they are supposed to serve. 3/31/2020 10:36 PM 108 As my husband and I are both self employed and both deemed non essential, we are financially hit very hard, like so many others. I just hope the stimulus package is fairly easy enough - at least to maintain bills and groceries. Thank you for all you do and your common sense approach to politics, you are a breathe of fresh air! My husband and I both, have much respect for you.... #TigerKingForever 😂 Twitter @DeannaKnighten 3/31/2020 10:34 PM 109 President Trump should resign but won’t because of his ego. 3/31/2020 10:34 PM 110 CV-19 deaths are being inflated for the purpose of FEMA funding. Additionally, small businesses are hurting and many won't survive the crisis. Many people who are unemployed will risk losing everything. 3/31/2020 10:33 PM 111 Stay safe! 3/31/2020 10:32 PM
  35. 35. The Indy Politics Informal COVID-19 Questionnaire 35 / 36 112 The GOP sucks. Print it. 3/31/2020 10:31 PM 113 Living in a twilight zone. Why would anybody with common sense, integrity, and maturity, support Trump, Pence, Braun, or Young, that live in the state of Indiana. Trump is CEO of the swamp. GOP senators are cowardly, pathetic card carrying swamp members. 3/31/2020 10:30 PM 114 Keep us informed about the virus and the state of Indiana & our citizens, being realistic but with some level of hope. Many people are on the edge and a total negative spin might be too much for some. 3/31/2020 10:28 PM 115 I think the impact on small business closures will be far reaching. Larger businesses will weather this financial down turn. Students will do fine even if they have limited internet access. The parents not so much, but teachers will be “Persons of the Year” this fall. Health care will be a hot button issue and the ability of the state and local communities to handle another crisis will be a political football. Primary voting will be a fiasco. (Makes up for all the canceled sporting events.) 3/31/2020 10:28 PM 116 Thank God Indiana has a big rainy day fund & we didn’t blow it on pet projects over the past few years. Also - it’s beyond time we pass constitutional carry in this state. 3/31/2020 10:27 PM 117 Of the 2016 Presidential candidates, why is Joe Exotic the only one in jail? 3/31/2020 10:24 PM 118 Legalize recreational marijuana! 3/31/2020 10:20 PM 119 I do believe we all could do better to slow the virus, but I also observe many rash decisions by too many people. 3/31/2020 10:19 PM 120 I just cannot understand the lack of preparation from the President or Governor. What would they have lost if we bought too many masks or ventilators? The GOP, especially in Indiana, has gotten too comfortable running barebones budgets that don’t allow for rainy days. 3/31/2020 10:19 PM 121 Tired of how backwards the state legislators are. Not just a lack of progressive ideas but actually detrimental ideas that the push through in the 11th hour with no debate or thought. Really hate how they take over municipalities right to rule and carve out special rules for Central Indiana. Think I will move when I can. So fed up with it 3/31/2020 10:18 PM 122 Na 3/31/2020 10:18 PM 123 Moving forward there needs to be nuance in the rules. Example, they treat a boutique gym that could limit users to just a few at one time the same as a 5000 member YMCA. Is Holcomb working w local biotech big guys like Lilly, Roche and Covance/Quest to come up w a testing strategy to get more people back to work while some level of risk remains? 3/31/2020 10:16 PM 124 I think this may get marijuana legalized. 3/31/2020 10:15 PM 125 Definition of essential business not strict enough. People not taking this seriously in small towns 3/31/2020 10:15 PM 126 Trump incompetence will kill many and cost millions their job. Firing those who had the job of monitoring pandemics is grossly under reported. Glad the rich got their tax cuts - but they’ve lost more $ than they saved in taxes 3/31/2020 10:13 PM 127 Haven’t noticed Indys mayor much. Odd. 3/31/2020 10:12 PM 128 In comparison to Governor DeWine, I find we are lacking in Indiana in communication, planning and news delivery. Ohio's press conferences are so well done in comparison. 3/31/2020 10:12 PM 129 Indiana seems to be doing very little at a State level to address this relative to other states. New York, for example, has extensively sourced medical supplies. They recently even ordered thousands of Bag Valve Masks (manual ventilators if you will) and have considered training National Guard personnel you use the device in the event of a ventilator shortage. They have also been exponentially more transparent in terms of hospital/ICU capacity as well as ventilator counts. Watching the response of our state officials makes me worry we’re being reactive rather than proactive. 3/31/2020 10:12 PM 130 Trump lost two months in denial 3/31/2020 10:08 PM 131 No 3/31/2020 10:08 PM 132 Major overreaction and overreach of government power. I'm voting Libertarian in the governor's race. This is ridiculous how government has grabbed and confiscated our civil rights. I place most of the blame on the governors 3/31/2020 10:06 PM
