Republican Rep. Trey Hollingsworth says letting more Americans die of the coronavirus is lesser of two evils compared to the economy tanking https://t.co/UP3895I9rX pic.twitter.com/9CXQI2Q7Nd— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) April 14, 2020
Trey Hollingsworth, real name Joseph Albert Hollingsworth III, and yes he is very rich, is absolutely opposed to abortion and identifies as "pro-life." But when it comes to people who are already born, they can die by the millions if it means getting the economy back to the way it was pre-pandemic. Meaning when workers toiled for him without health insurance, making him millions while millions of PEOPLE died every year from preventable health problems.
I don't think this could get much more egregious.
But again, the good thing is that the labor movements and demands for universal healthcare coming out of the pandemic are scaring the shit out of rich people who only care about hanging on to as much money and power as they can. And this is only the beginning. We're not going to lay down our lives for Trey's fucking profit margins.
