Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar announced he will be personally self-quarantining after coming into contact with a person infected with the Chinese Coronavirus at last month’s CPAC conference.

Individuals who attended the conference have been receiving testing and evaluation for possible coronavirus symptoms, after it was revealed that an individual affected with the pandemic disease did in fact attend the conference.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz also announced he’s spending time at home, making sure that he doesn’t have the viral illness after coming into contact with the anonymous person who is infected.
Gosar’s contact with the coronavirus patient seems to have been more serious, as Cruz has clarified he only briefly interacted with the individual. His statement on the matter confirms he was in the presence of the individual for an “extended” period of time, and that he shook hands with him or her.
Three of Gosar’s staff members are also self-quarantining. None of them are currently experiencing any of the symptoms commonly demonstrated by Chinese Coronavirus patients, such as fatigue, fever and sore throat.
Italy today announced a public transportation and quarantine throughout several northern provinces of the country, demonstrating just how quickly the respiratory disease can spread. More than 16 million Italians will be locked down by the mass quarantine.
Fortunately, there probably isn’t any real cause for alarm. But Northern Arizona community members will keep their Prescott-area Representative in their thoughts all the while.
Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks
Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.
Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.
If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.
The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
