BERNIE on VIRUS: US Gov Must ‘Guarantee’ Every American Has ‘All the Health Care They Need’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.07.20

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his universal healthcare scheme Tuesday; saying every American must have government-provided health care in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“At a time when millions of people are losing their jobs and their health insurance, the United States government must guarantee that you will have all of the health care you need,” posted Sanders on social media.

 

Sanders made similar comments late last week.

“Last week, 6.6 million applied for unemployment. Millions more will lose their jobs in the coming weeks. In the midst of this horrific crisis, Congress must pass a new, unprecedented emergency bill that guarantees income and health care for all Americans. Working on details now,” posted Sanders on social media.

 

Sanders ripped the Trump administration’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic this week; calling the White House’s efforts to slow the spread of the disease “insane.”

“Millions are losing their jobs and health care at a rate never before seen in American history. @realDonaldTrump’s response? Block http://HealthCare.gov from enrolling people who desperately need insurance during a pandemic. That is insane,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders ripped the Republicans’ Coronavirus relief package on social media last Monday; saying the plan focuses on “corporate CEOs” at the expense of “food and transit workers.”

“Reading the Republican coronavirus bill, you’d think the most important people in America are corporate CEOs. That is wrong. Our essential workers include: Health workers. Delivery and warehouse workers. Food workers. Transit workers We must put their needs ahead of CEOs,” posted Sanders on twitter.

AMERICA RESPONDS: AOC Describes Coronavirus Relief Vote as ‘Literally a Hostage Situation’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez described Friday’s vote on the Coronavirus relief plan as a “hostage situation,” calling the legislation a gift to America’s biggest corporations and wealthiest residents.

“Each one of us takes this vote alone. This is not an easy position for anyone to take. It’s a tough position, because it’s literally a hostage situation,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

 

Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her fierce opposition to the Senate’s bipartisan Coronavirus relief package Friday; calling the legislation “shameful” and “crumbs” for American families.

“Our community’s reality is this country’s future if we don’t do anything. Hospital workers do not have protective equipment. We don’t have the necessary ventilators. We have to go into this vote eyes wide open,” said Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on the House Floor.

“Shameful! The greed of that fight is wrong, for crumbs for our families, and the option that we have is to let them suffer with nothing or to allow this greed and billions of dollars which will be leveraged into trillions of dollars!” she screamed.

AOC VS AMAZON: Ocasio-Cortez Says Amazon Response to Coronavirus ‘Racist and Classist’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.03.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped the Amazon corporation over their Coronavirus response Thursday evening; accusing the global company of organizing a “racist and classicist PR campaign.”

“Amazon’s attempt to smear Chris Smalls, one of their own warehouse workers, as ‘not smart or articulate’ is a racist & classist PR campaign. If execs are as concerned abt worker health & safety as they claim, then they should provide the full paid sick leave ALL workers deserve,” posted AOC on Twitter.

 

“Jeff Bezos: The richest man in the world. Amazon: Pays $0 in federal income taxes. Workers: Unable to get the protection they need,” added Sen. Bernie Sanders. “The greed has got to end. I stand with Amazon workers who are fighting for their rights.”
