Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is thinking of new restrictions that would destroy the economy.
She’s looking to expand government power.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave Joe Biden a terrible idea that could doom America.
Many on the radical Left see the coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to reshape society.
Last year Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed the Green New Deal which would stop air travel, rebuild every house in America and guarantee a living wage even for people who were unwilling to work.
Now again Ocasio-Cortez is looking to pay to do nothing.
She says that in order to get the coronavirus under control the government should pay people to stay in their houses.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home.”
She then blamed Republicans for favoring the rich and not the poor.
“Republicans are mad at this when they literally just voted to do just this in March. The reason they’re opposed to it now is because last time they got a Wall Street bailout and this time all that’s left is helping working people, the disabled, the poor, etc.”
She also brushed aside concerns about how the government would pay to keep people at home.
“Funny how you didn’t hear Republicans complain about ‘spending other people’s money’ or ask ‘how are we going to pay for it?’ when they insisted on creating a $4 trillion leveraged slush fund for their Wall Street buddies in March.” she added.
There are major problems with the idea that Ocasio-Cortez is proposing.
Many white-collar jobs can be done from home but people working in the service industry or in manufacturing aren’t so lucky.
Even if the government pays the wages, if businesses are forced to shut down for extended periods how will they survive?
It will take years for the economy to survive from the impact of the virus and there’s no possible way for the government to fix things.
The people who are in danger from the virus are the elderly who the government already pays social security to.
Yet Democrats are trying to impose lockdowns of America again.
Sen. Rand Paul, who is also a medical doctor, said that he would resist any lockdowns.
Paul said, “I’m going to do everything I can to try to prevent Biden from locking us up and locking us down and forcing us to wear masks forever. We can’t go on like this forever.”
“Today, Biden’s talking more about a lockdown,” Paul continued. “This is absolutely why he’s going to be a terrible president if we get him. He’s going to ruin the country. Lockdowns don’t work. And in fact, all of the evidence on mandatory masks show that they don’t work either.”
