Will America Have To Rethink The State Of The Union?

Via The Washington Examiner:

Panic. Chaos. Economic collapse. 

Thanks to the spread of the coronavirus throughout the United States, this is all happening right now. We’re in the middle of a situation that we didn’t cause and can’t control. The immediate challenges of safeguarding public health, protecting the vulnerable, and limiting economic and social disruption are undeniable and immediate.

But there are also lessons to be learned for the future.

We must turn our attention to why we were so unprepared for a pandemic such as the coronavirus, and how we can prioritize long-term risk assessment and contingency planning. Certainly, we all can agree that our political class should spend less time reacting to the tweets and surface-level topics that drive ratings on cable news and more time ensuring that American ingenuity will be ready to respond to future crises.
