When Biden/Harris are asked about what they will do about Covid

Like at the town hall last night and surely at the VP debate. People are afraid that life will be this way forever. Assure people that #1 vaccines are in the works and treatments are getting more effective as more is learned through science. #2 If we had a national plan from early on and a president who encouraged same from the start we very likely would be much closer to getting back to normalcy . Give the people hope and show how republicans have screwed the pooch on this at the same time. Then if time lay out your plan.

2. The problem is

The Democrats will have to be the adults AGAIN and enforce some discipline.

It's like a bad divorce where the kids get to spend weekends with Dad and eat cake all the time. Mom looks like the jerk when she makes the kids eat vegetables and do homework.

What is even worse is that it won't work because 40% of the Country has been taught that it is unnecessary. It is the worst of both worlds where we have a dysfunctional economy and still spread the disease.

3. They also need to make it clear that this won't be over soon.

Way back in March or so it was possible to hope this could end soon, but since then, and more and more as time goes by, it's become clear we're in this for the long term. But there's still a notion that once we get a good vaccine, we'll get everyone vaccinated right away and it will be over. No, it won't, for lots of reasons, if only that vaccinating some 7 billion people will take a very long time.

5. sadly

without a massive nationwide commitment to wearing masks out in public, it's not going to get a lot better without a vaccine.

but, Biden & Harris won't screw states over if they don't support them, like Trump did with cutting funding for disinfecting public transportation in NYC

4. Use countries like South Korea and Taiwan as examples

both used science & testing & tracing to get a handle on things much more quickly than the US
