Remember when Sarah Palin was running for vice-president on the Republican ticket with the late Senator John McCain? And she proclaimed that Democratic plans for universal health insurance would lead to death panels? Well guess what…the GOP thinks you should all die to save the economy.
Dan Patrick, Texas’ Republican lieutenant governor, on Monday night suggested that he and other grandparents would be willing to risk their health and even lives in order for the United States to “get back to work” amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Those of us who are 70 plus, we’ll take care of ourselves. But don’t sacrifice the country,” Patrick said on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
At a press conference Monday evening, Trump appeared to lean towards reopening businesses as soon as possible against the advice of medical experts. “Because of the magnitude of our economy… we can’t turn that off and think it’s going to be wonderful,” Trump said during a briefing at the White House. “There will be tremendous death from that…probably more death from that than anything that we’re talking about with respect to the virus.”
and there’s this:
So no need to worry about the market or the economy. Either you will save the economy by dying or you will prosper because the president allowed millions of Americans to die. No worries!
Hey! Hold those Bibles up where I can see ’em!
