The writer claims that there will be "plenty of time” to review this crisis later. How does he know that there will be plenty of time?

The Trump administration has been widely criticized for its delay in mounting an appropriate response. Other world governments have also been criticized. We need to study the health, social and economic issues related to this pandemic. Another delay would be simply political and downright shameful.
I support Speaker Pelosi’s plan. The leadership void in the White House must be met by a strong response. We have no time to waste.
