As President Donald Trump and other Republicans push to send Americans back to work during the COVID-19 outbreak over the objections of medical experts, many worried about the public health impact.
Risking millions of lives to boost the economy, as Trump and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick have suggested, reminded many social users of the "death panels" Sarah Palin warned about during deliberations over Obamacare.
Medical experts have recommended a national shutdown for at least two weeks to halt the spread of the coronavirus, and many state and local governments have issued shelter in place orders temporarily but severely restricting many business operations.
Trump hasn't done that on a nationwide basis, and has said that he would like those state and local orders lifted to get workers back on the job -- worrying doctors and the public.
