If Democrats and the media somehow manage to install Joe Biden as president, the American economy may be doomed sooner than previously thought.
One of Biden’s COVID advisers is telling him that locking down the United States for weeks might be good for the economy.
You know, the economy that’s trying so hard to recover now after being locked down in the spring for weeks.
This is asinine.

4-6 Week Nationwide Lockdown Could Curb The Pandemic And Jumpstart The Economy, Biden Covid Advisor Says
Dr. Michael Osterholm, a coronavirus advisor to President-elect Joe Biden, said that a 4-6 week lockdown that shut down businesses and compensated workers for lost wages may curb the spread of the virus and get the economy on track until a vaccine is approved and distributed.
Osterholm, the director of the Center of Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told Yahoo Finance Wednesday that the strategy would help decrease daily case counts and hospitalizations until an effective vaccine arrives.
“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 or city, state, county governments,” Osterholm said. “If we did that, then we could lock down for four to six weeks.”
Can you think of anything more monumentally stupid than this?

Just like we said, Biden's team wants lockdowns.
We already know that lockdowns DON'T stop the spread of the virus. However, they destroy small businesses and jobs, and they make it difficult for families to put food on the table.https://t.co/ktDPedRM9e

One of Joe Biden’s top covid advisors is already advocating a 4-6 week full lockdown. This is absolute insanity: lockdowns don’t work and they kill our economy. https://t.co/A5x1fF9K0u

America is going to struggle if these people take over.
