Elon Musk Says Open America, Mark Cuban Disagrees

Elon Musk is urging governors to release their hold on the public by lifting restrictions on citizens and businesses.

The Tesla CEO posted a series of messages on Twitter questioning the effectiveness of draconian style lockdowns orders designed to protect the public from the new coronavirus.

The latest tweet from the famous executive came Wednesday. It simply stated, “FREE AMERICA NOW.”

Musk joins a growing number of Americans who believe the government has overstepped its powers by imposing stay at home orders and forcing businesses to close their doors. But not all CEO’s are on board with returning America to its pre-virus status.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says returning to normal is not the right thing to do. “I think it’s a mistake to start OPENING retail establishments to walk in traffic,” the Shark Tank star tweeted on Sunday. “INSTEAD we should allow ANY BUSINESS to offer Pick Up and Delivery starting now. It worked for restaurants, it can work for any biz.”

Last week, Cuban told his followers the solution to the current situation is more government. “We absolutely need a federal jobs program,” he tweeted. “50m people unemployed and underemployed! We need millions trained to be Healthcare professionals who will do tracking and tracing within HIPAA privacy protocols to allow us to learn and to be prepared in case of a resurgence.”

While some states have announced loosening restrictions, most of America remains on some sort of shelter in place order, prohibiting tens of millions from going to work. According to Marketwatch, 26 million Americans have lost their jobs since the start of the coronavirus crisis in January.
