It was news when it happened six weeks ago...

2. Well i consider it news as long as the rethugs EVERYDAY call for opening of our country

EVERY time they call for OPENING up they should be reminded of GOVERNMENT is NOT open. That's my thoughts!

4. What i want is for media to QUESTION, Why it's NOT safe to open government offices i guess.

What would their answer be for NOT opening Gov. offices? I mean ALL including the White House!

5. My wife works for Treasury and they ARE preparing to open...

...part of the problem is that DC Government still limits non-essential work.

6. Not to argue, but that's my point

WHY is DC Government different from ALL other industries? I'm saying IF the GOVERNMENT can't open, NOBODY should be opening up until it's safe to do so!

7. The Trump Administration is not "opening up" anything...

...STATE and LOCAL jurisdictions make the decisions. In the case of the IRS, the DC (local) Government decides when it's safe. Republicans will simply say that the DC Government is being too cautious.

8. Again i'm saying the State and local DO make their decisions BUT

I'm 100% certain that local rethuglicon senators are HIGHLY involved with their governors pushing the white house opinions! (i'm saying forcing them to open per tRUMPS orders!) This needs to be noted by MEDIA!

9. Im not certain at all...

If they're Democratic Governors, they won't be pressured by Republican Senators; it they're Republican Governors (with the exception of DeWine, Hogan and Baker) they don't need to be pressured. Still has nothing to do with what the media should be saying.

10. Some returned.

It was national news.

Trump wanted people to die. That was the news. It was all bad.

It started before the date of this article (which is written a day or two after the fact).
