Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who is traditionally viewed as a person who will work more quickly with her Democratic Party allies in the United States Senate than work with President Trump, came to life this afternoon when she put aside her traditionally low energy demeanor to take to task the delay tactics of the Democrats in the Senate concerning the Stimulus Package Bill that is currently being negotiated.
“We are in the midst of a crisis in our country. A crisis caused by the Coronavirus. I cannot believe that the answer to this crisis, as we move to address the economic consequences that are so severe for the people of this country, that the answer from our friends on the other side of the aisle is ‘delay, delay, delay’. No sense of urgency. No hurry,” said Collins from the floor of the Senate.
“I’ve had the honor to serve to this body for many years; Never, never have I seen Republicans and Democrats fail to come together when confronted with a crisis. We did so after 9/11, we did so with the financial meltdown in 2008. Here we are facing an enemy that is invisible but equally devastating to the health of our people and to the health of our economy.”
“And yet unbelievably the Democratic Leader objected to my even being able to speak this morning. Is this what we have come to? The Democratic Leader objective to our convening at nine o’clock this morning so that we could begin working in earnest. Is this what we have come to? “
The Senator from Maine who is on a regular occasion labeled a “Republican in Name Only” end her fiery remarks by saying “We don’t have another day. We don’t have another hour. We don’t have another minute.”

Trump Considering Enforceable Quarantine New York, Parts of New Jersey and Connecticut
This afternoon in remarks given to the media President Trump said that he is giving consideration to putting in place an “enforceable quarantine” for New York, parts of New Jersey and Connecticut.
Before leaving for Joint Base Andrews, the President told reporters, “We’d like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot- New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts of Connecticut quarantined. I’m thinking about it right now.”
“We might not have to do it but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine — short term two weeks for New York, probably New Jersey and parts of Connecticut,” remarked the President.
Currently New York is the epicenter of the Chinese Cornoavirus outbreak in the United States with over fifty two thousand confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to latest reports. New Jersey has over eight thousand confirmed cases and Connecticut has over twelve hundred.
The President suggested that the quarantine would be travel-based, mean that people inside the quarantine areas would be limited to travel only within the quarantine areas and travel outside would be restricted.
After landing at Joint Base Andrews, President Trump tweeted, “I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE of developing “hot spots”, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly.”
