Despite the spike in death rates hospitalizations and new cases of the Wuhan virus are dropping around the country and most Americans are hoping to get back to work, but not if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can help it. Pelosi warned Trump that he better not fix the economy.
Nancy Pelosi Says Congress Will NOT Reopen In April, Warns Trump Not To Restart Economy

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Politico Friday that she is considering keeping the House of Representatives out of session longer than the April 20th return-from-recess date, and may not bring Congress back until well into May — and she’s warned President Donald Trump to keep the country under lockdown even longer.
Pelosi said that only the scientists can tell us what to do.
Pelosi wants the country in economic lockdown much longer, she told Politico.
“Nobody can really tell you that and I would never venture a guess. I certainly don’t think we should do it sooner than we should,” Pelosi said. “This has taken an acceleration from when we started this. Little did we know then that at this point, we’d be further confined.”
She also suggested that Trump’s advisors rein the president in if he moves too quickly to restore economic function: “I would hope that the scientific community would weigh in and say, ‘You can’t do this, it is only going to make matters worse if you go out too soon.’”
Pelosi’s response comes after the President announced that he is going to start a second Taskforce that is going to be responsible for getting the economy back on track.
