Anyone agree with this ?
« on: Tuesday 24 March 20 13:50 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone of ANY country of this age group feel they would agree with what this Texas Official stated?

"Older people would rather die than let Covid-19 harm US economy Texas official"

Yes but they claim that's how the elderly feel, as if theywould all be happy with this. I know my mother wouldn't feel she'd sacrifice herself for the economy, whereas she would maybe for someone younger who needed aventilator if there weren't enough.

 I would agree with your Grandmother Sam.  Trumps concern is with his promises on the economy,  looking towards re-election!
