One of the big questions that will be asked if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris become President and Vice President is, how will they deal with the pandemic? Will they continue the policies of President Donald Trump? Or, will they change course? Well, before the ballot counting is even over, we may have just gotten a look at what a Biden/Harris administration might do – namely, place the country in a four- to six-week lockdown.
“A member of President-elect Joe Biden’s coronavirus task force said Wednesday that the US could manage the pandemic by enforcing an extended economic lockdown with the government compensating workers for lost wages,” according to the New York Post.
“Dr. Michael Osterholm floated the idea in an interview with Yahoo Finance, explaining that a four- to six-week shutdown of small to medium businesses could drive down infection numbers.
“Osterholm said the federal government is in a prime position to use borrowed money to pay for such a lockdown package…
“‘We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies to medium-sized companies,’ and losses to lower levels of government, Osterholm said.
Watch Osterholm on this video (there may be a short ad first) and then share your thoughts in the Comment section further down the page. Would you support a four- to six-week lockdown of the United States because of COVID-19?
