Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently floated the idea of paying Americans “to stay home” as a way to combat the spread of the coronavirus. To quote AOC, “To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home”.
The proposal is eerily similar to communist policies. This, however, should not be surprising as AOC describes herself as a “democratic socialist”.
The suggestion comes as politicians across America have begun to lockdown their respected areas for a second time. Many leaders, such as Democrat Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, have gone as far as discouraging individuals from celebrating Thanksgiving.
