Q & A with Joe

  • What's your plan to lead the country through the coronavirus pandemic and to recover the economy?

    "Make no mistake: An effective plan to beat the virus is the ultimate answer to how we get our economy back on track. So we should stop thinking of the health and economic responses as separate. They are not."
