Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer said right now we should see how things play out and go from there when it comes to phase one.

He said if you do not open all the way, you wouldn’t have the full effect of bringing back the economy.

“By fall, the American people will see this is not as serious of a situation as advertised,” he said. “The American people will be out and about.”

Luetkemeyer said everyone interprets the data differently, but if you listen to Birx and Fauci and how they speak about it now, it’s not as deadly as anticipated.

“We have to keep all of this stuff in perspective,” he said.
