Can we pay AOC to stay home?

November 21, 2020 |

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared that to stop the coronavirus, we need to pay people to stay home until the coronavirus goes away. Except that if everyone stays home and hides from it, then it will never play itself out, as all viruses eventually do (all we’ve done with these draconian lockdowns is delay the spread, not stop it), and we’ll be paying people to stay home and do nothing until there's either an effective vaccine that everyone will take or the economy collapses and the government is $100 trillion in debt.

Still, even though it’s a flawed plan, I will personally agree to pay AOC $25 a week to stay home instead of going to Congress. I’ll bet we could get that even higher with a GoFundMe page.
