Rep. Don Young Skips Vote on Coronavirus Relief, Gives Seniors Dangerous Advice
Rep. Don Young (R-AK) skipped a vote on a federal coronavirus relief package on March 14.
Young was in Alaska where he gave dangerous advice senior citizens about the coronavirus at Mat-Su Senior Services in Palmer, Alaska on March 13.
Young’s “advice contradicts recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and information posted to Young’s own official campaign and congressional Facebook pages and his congressional website,” notes the Anchorage Daily News.
I say the exciting part about if you just look even in China where this thing originated, it peaked and it’s going down. It will happen here in the United States.
This beer virus I call it, they call it a coronavirus I call it a beer virus how do you like that. It attacks our senior citizens. Now I’m one of you. I still say we have to as a nation, as a state to go forth with our everyday activities.
Young called for bailouts for businesses (socialism) and blamed the media:
This challenge we have, the small business community is going to have some support from congress in the sense of loans and in the sense of loan forgiveness.
If they lose business with the development of this corona attack, again the beer virus, we can overcome this mess if we just be calm.
Whether you realize it or not we are at war now, but mostly because of the presentations by the mass media.
Young also blamed the pharmaceutical companies:
This is blown out of proportion about how deadly this is. It’s deadly but it’s not nearly as deadly as the other viruses we have, but we respond to I call it the hysteria concept.
Most of this medical equipment we’re using, 85 percent is coming from China. That’s wrong guys and I blame the pharmaceutical companies.
