SEAN DUFFY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): By the way, if these closures continue, Brian, and the government gives these workers a check for a little while, they're going to have checks for the rest of their life because there won't be any bars and restaurants to go back to to work in. They're all going to be closed. We're all going to be forced -- or these workers are all going to be forced to be on the government dole forever, because they're crushing these businesses that won't come back.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Maybe that's the goal. Maybe that's the goal.

DUFFY: Maybe.

RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Maybe it is. That's what they're doing in China. They're consolidating power, even more, whatever little bit of free market was left over this pandemic. You know, Chairman Xi has consolidated and made it less so, because the middle class has always been the most unruly,  feisty group. And that's who you have to control.
