It seems like Democrats just want to watch America burn.
Recently on Fox’s “Your World,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) weighed in on the decision of protecting Americans from coronavirus and restarting the economy.
According to Breitbart, Kennedy insisted there was a “moral imperative” to do both.
“We can do both, and by both, I mean save lives and save jobs,” Kennedy stated. “We have to do both. I think we have a moral imperative to do both. The reason that we shut down the economy, to begin with, was so that our health care delivery system would not be overwhelmed. It wasn’t. We’re even better prepared today. Some of my colleagues trust government more than people. I trust people more than government. My people in Louisiana, they get it. They understand the coronavirus can kill you. Won’t kill most of us. But they’re taking it seriously.”
“They also know that poverty can kill you,” Kennedy said. “And I trust my people to social distance, to stay apart, not gather in big groups. They understand we need to protect the elderly and those with preexisting conditions. I think we can do both.”
