Barnicle: “I’m struck by the indifference"

“I’m struck by the indifference that we’ve witnessed over the last couple months—two or three months—in both the House and the Senate toward the plight of millions of Americans who are struggling with eviction, with joblessness, with hunger,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle about the economic toll added to the death and illness of the coronavirus catastrophe that has plagued the country. “There seems to be just an indifference that really stunned me, and it’s certainly a contrast to…as recently as the early mid-90s. It seemed different then—it seemed Congress and the Senate was more in touch with the needs of people than we are in this age of instant communication. It’s incredible.” More of Morning Joe “final thoughts” here.
