Christian Weller: Companies' fiduciaries should be able to offer add'l choices as long as the ratings & fees are similar; they should also be allowed to offer those as the default investments. Make the paperwork less. DOL & SEC need to work together.

Bob Ney: Harvard & MIT are totally online now & are suing the US gov't since ICE has said foreign students can't be in US for online-only college classes. The repercussions of this will be that home countries will tell their students to go to Canada instead of U.S.

Tom Arnold: Joni Ernst, 1st female Senator fm Iowa--I want to support her,I really do,but she can't say anything bad about Trump. She served in the military, she stood up to her ex-husband who was abusing her, but she won't speak up against Trump. Iowa deserves better

Emily de La Bruyère: The one hope, as we deal with COVID, is it will be the wake-up call as to how dependent on China we are. We're seeing that in the PPE chains. China has done this across industrial sectors, making us totally reliant.

Propane Jane: Shut the state [of Texas] down. Masks are one thing, but that's not stopping people from going to work or going to places they don't necessarily need to be. Our numbers were not this bad when we were staying home. Shut things down till we have control

Sarah Kendzior: In a free & fair election, Trump would lose. With the coronavirus, economy, etc., Biden would stand a very good chance of winning...in a free & fair election. However, I'm worried we will not have a free & fair election.
