Trump should stay out of it.
    Price wars involving commodities like oil are dangerous for economic stability. Always have been. Always will be.

    That Putin thing is really old, and as illogical as it gets.

    Trump is trying to protect the US shale industry, but he needs to stay out of it. Shale can weather the downturn; they did it before.

    Oil is the most resilient commodity that ever existed. It drops slowly but rebounds on the fact track. All it takes is one attack on an oil well, one skirmish in a Middle East country, one refinery fire, and gas prices shoot up like a firework.

    Trump wants the Saudi to reestablish OPEC price controls, which is the standard anti-competition by curtailed production for 50 years now. Why is it unsettling?

    Congress doesn't want to spend trillions, but they really have little choice as both sides, including the president, have obviously agreed.

    Hopefully the virus will keep the Representatives from voting for this inappropriate spending bill. However, the bill is likely to be approved and be an extension of the virus' detrimental affect on America and the world. It can't be the will of the people to have chains put around our necks.

    Probably all that Congress should have done was to cancel all taxation for 4 months.
