Sen. Rick Scott: We Have to Stop the Coronavirus Spread and Get U.S. Businesses Open Again

‘We’ve got to get this economy going again’


SCOTT: "I think, Neil, people want to make sure we are helping our small businesses and helping the people that have lost their jobs. We just have to make sure we do it the right way so that we get this economy going again. I think the President has been very clear. We have to one, deal with the Coronavirus — and that’s what we are doing. But once we have that under control, we have to get this economy going again. So in my case, I’m very focused on how we stop the virus, how we stop the spread and how we get all of these businesses open again. And I don’t want to do something that’s going to create the opposite effect."
