John Kennedy: ‘We Can’t Leave Economy Shut Down or It’s Going to Collapse’
KENNEDY: "Sure I am worried. We all are worried. You don’t know — we have never been here before. You know, we all know that the most important things in life aren’t things, but we got to eat. We got 22 million Americans out of work and climbing, and we are faced with choosing between cancer and a heart attack. We’ve got to save lives and livelihoods. It's a miserable choice. But this much I do know. We cannot leave this economy shut down or it is going to collapse. The Federal Reserve is holding it together with spit and duct tape, and if the American economy collapses the world economy collapses. Now some in the preening elites say, 'Oh, Kennedy doesn't care about human life.' Yeah, I care about human live. You can die from poverty, too. I care about saving lives and livelihoods. I think that's the way most Americans feel."
