I say all of that to say this, make no mistake about it. The GOVERNMENT IS DOING JUST FINE because “We The People” are footing a massive portion of the bill.

Fact: the financial impact of the novel coronavirus on the United States has been undeniable. It is fair to say that COVID-19 has not only stirred a public health crisis, but it has prompted an economic crisis as well. The Brookings Institute released its research on the impact of COVID-19 on the American financial system. In an era of “fake news,” it's important to note that the “Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. [Their] mission is to conduct in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national and global level.”
I know, I know, but you have to do that now. Anyway…
