    Maybe, maybe not. President Nixon was able to order a nationwide wage and price freeze.

    That's why I was questioning if Trump would take responsibility for what this "new" task force advises and he follows.

    Yes, until the national government says otherwise. It is constitutional until the courts say that such orders are not, and the courts are not going to do that during this emergency, Arcangl8

    One, the courts will uphold the federal government.

    Two, the states will not ignore the federal government, particularly when it nationalizes the state NGs.

    One, the courts are part of the federal government.
    Two, the courts had no problem in the past affirming the states over the federal government when it came to issues of federalism, which this is.
    Three, the states ignore the federal government all the time.
    Four, yes the President can federalize the National Guard, but because of Posse Comitatus doesn't have the authority to use the military to enforce the law. And what would that look like anyway? Would he arrest governors for not lifting stay at home orders?

    If you believe all that and think that will prevent the national government from being in charge of this crisis within the states if necessary, you are in for a shock.

    I would be in for a shock, because that means the rule of law no matter exists in the United States and we have become a two-bit dictatorship.

    Dont let them mix with Liberal New York politicians then. Inside NY we see the stupidity you describe.

    Best graph I've seen yet.

    Notice that the duration that people need medical care is extended as the curve is flattened. But containment measures must continue over the entire time that infection of the population is possible.
    Notice also that the line depicting medical capacity drops over time.

    It certainly has to begin at some point and always better sooner then later. A task force is a great way to get that ball rolling.
