The Newest, Tackiest Exploitation of COVIDCon Yet

Well, it wouldn’t be the USSA if greedy Marxists didn’t capitalize on their troubles so the government would force the rest of us to pay them, would it?

As President Joe Biden pitches a multi-trillion-dollar package to shore up the country’s physical infrastructure, [Covid survivors]— including people who lost loved ones to the virus — are focusing their grassroots lobbying on the follow-up plan Biden is expected to unveil later this month addressing the country’s “human infrastructure.” They’ll press the White House and Congress to prioritize mandatory paid sick leave and make permanent the temporary expansion of Obamacare subsidies that was approved as part of Biden’s $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package, among other goals.

…recently formed groups like Covid Survivors for Change and Marked by COVID with several thousand members are also launching efforts at the federal and state levels, including setting up local chapters. They have an ambitious agenda: more funding for research, treatments and some form of compensation for the Covid-related deaths of more than half a million Americans.

Keep it up, Commies. You’re moving us ever closer to revolution…
