(Tea Party PAC) – Nothing has revealed to what extent the Republican Party has been populated with jelly-spined hacked like the events of the past month.
And now we’re faced with the reality that the GOP establishment in Washington D.C. is hardly going to put up much of an effort to Biden’s Orwellian push into the Great Reset.
GOP Rep. Steve Stivers of Ohio is now under fire for proposing that $1,400 in additional planned stimulus checks be issued to those who have received COVID-19 vaccinations.
Speaking to Yahoo News in an interview published on Thursday, he suggested this “solution” as part of a broader narrative on bringing Democrats and Republicans “together.”
“Hopefully there are things that we can come together on. You know, even the pandemic response. It’s so important that we build herd immunity as soon as we can,” he said.
“While I am not for giving a $1,400 stimulus check for anything, I’d be willing to sign off on a stimulus check of $1,400 for people who take the vaccine, and I hope the administration will look at that option because we actually buy something with our $1,400 — and that’s herd immunity,” he continued.
Herd immunity, by the way, is something that is sorely needed when a population is faced with a novel virus like the coronavirus. It has been argued for months now that continued restrictive lockdowns and school closures is preventing the population from developing such an immunity, in fact, as the virus is has consistently proven to be largely harmless to children and healthy younger adults.
As it happens, this idea was first floated by Rep. John Delaney of Maryland, a Democrat.
“Pay people to take a covid vaccine. The vaccines are likely to arrive at the same moment Washington is, belatedly, taking up much-needed stimulus legislation. The timing couldn’t be better: Money would go into Americans’ pockets just when the U.S. economy can begin fully reopening with a vaccinated population that can go about their daily lives without fear of catching the disease or infecting others,” he wrote for the Washington Post two months ago.
“To that end, the federal government should pay every American $1,500 to get vaccinated. Send proof of vaccination, receive a $1,500 check or money via direct deposit. Such an incentive might be the most effective way to persuade people to overcome suspicion or even fear of vaccines that, like so much else about the pandemic, became politicized during an election year,” he explained.
He was quickly joined by several on the left who agreed.
Both Never Trumper Anthony Scaramucci and former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang chimed in their approval of this terrifically statist plan:
“Well, I like the idea because it’ll increase the likelihood of the herd immunity. There’s a lot of anti-vaxxers, a lot of misinformation about vaccine out there, Don. And I also think people need the money,” Scaramucci told CNN’s Don Lemon at the time.
“I think we should be getting money into people’s hands right now, but certainly it would increase adoption of the vaccine, and we’re going to need to do something to stimulate trust and widespread adoption if we are going to actually be able to resume any kind of public gatherings, indoor dining, or really any form of normalcy,” he said.
Stivers’ echoing of this disturbing policy proposal was widely criticized among conservatives on Twitter:
1. Enjoy your final term.
2. Your proposal regarding withholding #COVIDRelief checks until ppl are vaccinated is so stupid, when I heard about it I thought you must be a democrat.

@RepSteveStivers Let me get this right…I will have to take a vaccine shot (that I’m not positive is safe) in order to get $1400.00 back of my own tax money. Doesn’t seem right to me.

@RepSteveStivers just what kind of nonsense are you thinking NOW?! You get a survival/stimulus check only if you get vaccine?! That way you get something for YOUR $! Take that idea & shove it up your ass! All of you Republicans were all for giving $ to rich & lining your own cups

You're nothing but an unconstitutional satanic SELLOUT! trying to force people into getting the sinister covid vaccine so they can get THEIR money via stimulus check. Damn RHINO! Go work for Bill Gates you Luciferian Masonic Swine!

@RepSteveStivers do not tie getting a vaccine to the stimulus checks. People with severe allergies cannot take this vaccine. They have severe reactions to the vaccine and many have died. I have suffered all my life with severe allergies to the outdoors, foods and medicines.
