1. Next caller asked if someone was positive, can they go back out and live normally if they recover

No mention from the Dr on the call as to having tested Negative TWICE before doing so!

3. Oh FFS

I've been on unemployment. It doesn't pay well. It just meant I didn't have to deplete my savings as quickly.

4. This Man Was Part Of A Company Stole Billions, Sir

From Medicare and Medicaid with fraudulent billings.

Certainly someone with his finger on the pulse of how gig-workers and zro-hour contract people think.

5. Saw this coming from 11:06 this morning. Actually when Trump tweeted "Our people"

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213183655#post7

County by county reminds me of Trump tweeting that "Our people" are ready to go back to work.

Implication is that HIS followers want to go back to work which ties directly to the "we work to pay for your food" thing. Also I can see maps being used to show who has it vs. who doesn't. I think it will probably look a lot like red-blue maps.

6. if the alternative is getting zero money to live on, then yeah

I'd want it if I could not go back to work due to the virus.

There are many other good reasons to take Unemployment. Do we PREFER to be on Unemployment? Fuck no.

7. Next caller says she can't get sanitizer to disinfect her home. Also asked when testing will ramp up

pRick saying supply chain is ok and doing the best they can.

As for testing, referred her to FL Dept of Health and gave out a phone number. Says he's been vocal for weeks now that South Korea and Taiwan did great testing and he's been vocal about doing testing here.

Well, I've not seen nor heard anything where he's applied pressure to Twitler

8. Next caller asking how gig workers can get unemployment

pRick saying he'll get w/her later to give her contact info at Dept of Economic Opportunity

Saying an uber/lyft driver, for example, can get on unemployment system the same as a regular employee who's been laid off (uhh...I don't think so)

10. Rick Scott installed in FL makes perfect sense with his past crimes, a perfect addition...

For this squad of evil assholes.

Fits right in, no testing to see if he's crooked required, one of the boys!

11. Current caller saying only 250 people/day can be tested at drive up facilities

and limited to specific symptoms and how can the Federal govt help

pRick defers called to call Fl Dept of Health

pRick saying just because test kits are out there doesn't mean everything is there to process them. Keeps saying we should be able to do what So. Korea has done and that he asks the Task Force to speed things up

Dr on the line saying early tests had swabs coming from No Italy so had to stop using those. Also, the RNA reagents needed to process the tests has been a bottleneck. Needs FDA approval for them and FDA trying to approve them for use. 3rd bottleneck is the machines to run the tests. We weren't expecting to run thousands a day (even though Federal govt was warned in DECEMBER!)

Screeners don't have enough PPE.

13. next caller: Will a retiree on SS still get a check from the stimulus bill

pRick saying based on filing status of 2018/2019 taxes. If you made less than $75k for an individual, you will get a check

Doesn't address specifically those on SS
