Just about every day since the Coronavirus crisis began I’ve seen progressive politicians voice the disturbing notion that this is a perfect opportunity to transform the United States in some way. Always their proposals will make the United States a more progressive nation. These politicians are nothing but shameful opportunists. We should resist these calls very strenuously.
Several progressive elected officials and Hillary Clinton have proposed that enacting Medicare for all would be a perfect solution our current crisis. They are living in a fantasy world. Socialized Medicine has an abysmal track record. Check out how nations with socialized medicine have fared during this crisis. The US has preformed far better. Nothing would destroy the United Sates medical system, which is by far the best in the world, faster.
Joe Biden, and others, have, proposed enacting the Green New Deal because of Coronavus. That would destroy our energy sector, which thanks to the efforts of President Trump, made the US a net positive producer of energy.
Universal basic income has been proposed many times, including recently by Nancy Pelosi, as a temporary solution to our crisis. Once enacted that new entitlement would quickly become permanent. Nothing would trap generation after generation in poverty more securely than this.
Changes to our electoral system such as voting by mail and vote harvesting are the most dangerous changes proposed by progressives. If they were enacted progressives would win election after election because of their willingness to use fraud and to deceit to win elections.
Getting everything back to the way we were before the Coronavirus crisis as quickly as possible is the best and quickest way to restore our economy and standard of living.
