2-Expect a coronavirus stimulus agreement in Senate, Schumer says
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters early Tuesday that he expects Republicans and Democrats in the Senate to come together and reach an agreement on the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package that set off a fierce debate on the Senate floor and allegations from both sides that the other was politicizing the emergency.
Despite the logjam, Schumer, the Senate minority leader, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told reporters that there was progress made in late-night negotiations. Schumer said he expects a vote sometime on Tuesday.
DML: I wonder what Republicans agreed to fold on, I’m guessing its either funding Planned Parenthood, supplying jobs to illegal aliens, or agreeing to the Green New Deal.
3- UK to lowdown, China opens
Britain has announced its most draconian peacetime restrictions, joining about 20% of the globe on lockdown. Nepal has also gone into a lockdown, while Thailand has issued a state of emergency. A desperate race to find medical equipment continues as the World Health Organization warns that the outbreak is accelerating and calls on countries to take strong, coordinated action.
Meanwhile, China is lifting a lockdown on most of virus-hit Hubei province. People who are cleared can leave after midnight today. Restrictions on the hardest-hit city of Wuhan remain until April 8.
DML: In the end, this will be the biggest overblown event / pandemic of our lifetime.
4- Stocks set to rally
Futures contracts tied to the major U.S. stock indexes surged in early trading Tuesday on hopes an agreement on a stimulus bill to rescue the economy from the coronavirus was close.
As of 7:34 a.m ET., Dow Jones Industrial Average futures jumped 930 points, or 5%, to hit so-called limit up levels. S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures were also up 5% and “limit up.” The S&P 500 SPDR ETF was up 4.7% in premarket trading.
DML: Don’t get all cozy with this upside, the basement hasn’t been hit.
5- I have been sick free for months
Check out this testimonial for DML CBD products: “Winters are horrible for me. I have a history of getting sick every year between January and April. At 66 years old I get more nervous about getting sick each time. I have tried everything including natural rememdies but none of it works — I am always sick in the winter. When you started using CBD and offered us the chance to buy your brand I held off thinking it would be a waste of money. Then you added the Miracle Me body oil to help with body pain. In addition to having chronic winter illness, I also suffer from neck and back pain that keeps me up at night. I purchased the DML Combo pack that I see you advertise on the news pages of the website with your name. I don’t know how it all works but it does!!!! The back and neck pain is gone, I am sleeping like a bear in the winter, and I have not been sick this season for the first time in 12 years. With all the virus fear that is ripping through the world this was a smart time for me to take the DML CBD and Miracle Me. I love you DML.” — Marge
