Dear President Trump,

Thank you for doing much to fight the Corona Virus.  Thank you for caring about our people and our economy.  I have heard much about your plans and programs to help the airline industry, the cruise industry, the banks, and the stock market.  I have heard about helping the restaurants and workers.  I appreciate all the efforts about which I have heard.  But I have not heard much about helping the typical small business.

So, Id like to tell you about the hardship that our firm is facing because of the Chinese Corona Virus.

Our firm is an insurance agency that was founded by a legal immigrant who became an American citizen and started an insurance agency that specialized in helping senior citizens get the biggest “bang for the buck” on insurance.

Everyone in the agency works hard to help our senior citizen clients.  When I came to the firm, we started offering our clients help with Medicare related medical bills without charge.  In the first seven years that we offered that service, our agency grew from one office with three agents to four offices with over a dozen agents and almost a dozen staff. There was a great need to help seniors who were getting false bills – often caused by the federal government.  I have saved our clients over two million dollars by fighting mistakes and fraud in the Medicare system.  I have written over 700 articles about problems with the Medicare system.  I even wrote the book SOLVING MEDICARE PROBLEM$ to teach others how to help seniors with this problem.

I believe that our agency is the largest senior citizen-oriented insurance agency in the Midwest.  The founder, agents, and staff work hard.

Normally, each of the four or five agents at our headquarter office meet with two to ten clients per day.  On March 18, 2020, NO SENIOR CITIZEN VISITED OUR MAIN OFFICE.  They are afraid of the Corona Virus.  So, they stay at home.  That is how the virus is hurting our business and similarly hurting other small businesses.

So, please design programs that help small businesses that have been harmed by Corona Virus.  Perhaps invite some small business people to participate by phone to help White House staff and others to develop helpful proposals.  If we work together, we can beat this imported Chinese flu and America will become stronger for going through this trial.
