Trump Voters Attack Sen. Liz Cheney After She Opposes Opening US Economy With Coronavirus Spreading
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) stated her opposition against President Donald Trump’s plan to reopen businesses as the coronavirus spreads.
There will be no normally functioning economy if our hospitals are overwhelmed and thousands of Americans of all ages, including our doctors and nurses, lay dying because we have failed to do what’s necessary to stop the virus. https://t.co/AchwfXtuLi— Liz Cheney (@Liz_Cheney) March 24, 2020
Cheney was pounded by Trump supporters who made ludicrous non-scientific claims.
The economy is a KEY FACTOR IN PUBLIC HEALTH!!!!! Isolate hotspots. Limit travel in/out (like NYC). Test, track, quarantine the positives. Mask the general public. At risk continue to self-quarantine and we help them.— Derby (@derbybbb) March 24, 2020

There will be no country left if everyone is jobless and defaults on their mortgages. I'll take my chances with washing hands and limiting exposure to large groups, you know, normal flu precautions.— 40 year-old Grandpa (@XRP2112) March 24, 2020
There is no functioning economy now. We just slammed 40% of our economy into a wall at 200mph, vast parts of the economy that are the most vulnerable. The personal devastation this will cause will dwarf this bug. But if we just save one…….right?— Bull Admiral (@bull_admiral) March 24, 2020
60,000 +/- people die every year in USA from influenza , even more if you add other viruses. 20,000 died in 2009 from H1 . Nothing was closed .— Gregory De MMXIX (@240aero1) March 24, 2020
We have the 15 day study window , when it's over we open up.
So we suck it up, do our part, take the enormous hit. What's the plan then, huh?— Margaret Ferrell (@Ruggins68) March 24, 2020
