Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick essentially said as much to Fox So-called “News” earlier today, Tuesday, March 24, 2020. He said he would be willing to take his chances, and believes many other older people would join him in taking the chance of getting the Coronavirus. They would take this chance to allow everyone to be able to get back to work.
Yes folks, this is how a Trumpist thinks!
It is so noble of him to be willing to possibly die of COVID-19 so everyone could go to work and spend money. The logic being the stock market would then rebound and help his Heir Leader win in November.
Lt. Governor Patrick doesn’t mind sacrificing the elderly. I guess he thinks since they’ve lived a long life, they wouldn’t mind dying now. The message is the elderly don’t matter! What matters is the rich getting richer as the stock market rises and be damned with the rest of us!
I don’t know about you, but I loved my one grandma I got to know. She left this world much to early. Her life was full of sacrifices for your husband and for her children. She, like so many grandparents, have already sacrificed enough for us. Why should they risk their lives to save the economy when there are alternatives in which lives and the economy can be saved?
There is one thing Mr. Patrick seems to have overlooked though.
In the United States, the group becoming sick and being hospitalized are in the 20-54 age range. Based on that data, I have a question for Mr. Patrick.
Which of your children and grandchildren are YOU willing to sacrifice for the economy?
