Trust is a two-way street

About two weeks ago, certain businesses in Lafayette Parish opened their doors to a new way of doing things. They wear masks if interacting with customers. They established systems for spacing employees and customers six feet apart. They monitor employees’ health and don’t allow sick workers to report in. They keep to 25 percent of their fire marshal’s set capacity. And if they don’t, they risk fines and even having their utilities cut. It meant some adjustments, creativity and patience, but… they were back in business.

Great Depression, The Sequel

It took President Donald Trump three years to build the world’s best economy with an unemployment rate of only 3.5%, rising wages, strong consumer confidence and a robust stock market. Sadly, it only took three weeks for that healthy economy to be destroyed and the longer the economy is closed for business, the harder it will be for our nation to recover.

COVID-19 aid could cause long-term financial damage to Louisiana

New details have recently emerged in a new Foundation for Government Accountability Report (FGA), “Extra COVID-19 Medicaid Funds Come at a High Cost to States”, which indicate that Democrats in Washington are once again not letting a good crisis go to waste. Democrats are attempting to entrap states like Louisiana into COVID-19 aid and relief funds that have massive redistribution obligations buried in them. New COVID-19 legislation is being contemplated as we speak, and It is imperative that our U.S. Senators and Congressmen fix this problem now!
