Mark Cuban and freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are becoming strange bedfellows.
On May 17, 2020, Cuban went on Twitter to float the idea of a federal jobs program to track and trace the Wuhan virus. This would be a program to transition workers back into the economy despite the economic upheaval. Cuban argued that the Paycheck Protection Program didn’t stimulate the economy and instead asserted that consumer demand is the only factor that can rescue businesses.
“It’s time for trickle up economics,” he stated. “We need a transitional fed jobs program that trains and hires millions for a federal tracking/tracing/testing program as well as for support for at risk populations including long term care. We need to dent unemployment with stable jobs.”
Cuban also put forward the idea of a $500 billion “use it or lose it” temporary spending stimulus program where 128 million U.S. households could receive a $1,000 check every two weeks for the next two months that must be spent within 10 days or it ends up expiring.
Last month, unemployment reached about 15 percent due to jobs lost from the Wuhan virus pandemic.
“This is not like the recessions of the past, even the Great Recession, where we had time to allow entrepreneurs just to create enough businesses or create enough jobs,” Cuban said to the Washington Examiner last week. “We’re down 30 million-plus jobs in two months.”
“We may have to go to jobs programs like we did in the ‘30s, which would make perfect sense for like tracking, and tracing, and testing where we train healthcare workers to do that and create 2 or 3 million jobs,” he continued.
Ocasio-Cortez noticed the thread and agreed with the tycoon.
“Totally agree,” AOC tweeted on May 17. “It’s time for a Federal Jobs Guarantee.”
On previous occasions, Cuban has expressed his fondness for AOC but does disagree with some of her policies however.
Hack Economist Paul Krugman Celebrates the Death of Elderly White People
On June 30, 2020, economist Paul Krugman expressed his desire for the death of White Americans.
He tweeted, “Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts” in reference to an article from Bloomberg News that highlighted how the Wuhan virus pandemic is particularly deadly and disproportionately impacting older segments of the American population.
According to Bloomberg, “record numbers of Floridians 75 and older are testing positive for Covid-19,” according to a June 29 report.
The report added:
Florida hasn’t seen a departure from its relatively low rate of Covid-19 deaths, but it can take weeks from onset of symptoms to death, and the surge in infections is recent.
The new positivity rate — which measures the proportion of people testing positive for the first time compared to the day’s overall testing — started climbing significantly about two weeks ago.
Common sense measures such as quarantining and isolating the elderly population make sense in these circumstances. But total lockdowns are an overreach.
To the point of Krugman race-baiting, this is not a surprise given his status as a mainstream economist.
Political correctness is his M.O., from pushing central banking to perpetuating destructive identity politics.
The Right will need to assert itself against this mob and keep them from gaining power.
More importantly, they must implement policies such as defunding public education at all levels to prevent these people from further consolidating power.
