Utah Republican Sen. (and 2012 U.S. presidential candidate) Mitt Romney is leaving from  lunch with fellow Republicans. Its purpose is to provide substantial assistance and credits to states and regions affected by Covid-19, but without the stifling restrictions that DC is accustomed to exercising in these cases. In this photo, Romney is holding a large poster, which clarifies that Democrats and Republicans are paying the exact same price in current crisis : “Blue states aren’t the only ones who are screwed.” (photo by Gabriella Demczuk for The New York Times)
