Friends, I can’t make this up.
Former Democrat lawmaker John Delaney in an interview with CNBC suggested that Americans willing to take the vaccine a $1,500 stimulus check.
Andrew Yang who ran for president in the democratic primaries also said “he’s on board” with giving people a stimulus for taking a vaccine.
Leave it to Democrats to try to bribe people who are struggling financially to take a vaccine.
Paying people $1500 to take the vaccine as I've proposed w/ #vaccinestimulus will result in 75% of Americans vaccinated (the threshold needed to end the virus) months sooner. This will save lives and end the COVID nightmare. It will easily pay for itself. https://t.co/q3gfHXdBV6

BEST ECONOMIC STIMULUS? Pay every American $1500 for vaccination—especially for vaccines that need 2 doses. Remember, vaccination programs is what will save lives & economy. $7 Trillion global economic boost if we roll out faster.🧵 @JohnDelaney #COVID19 https://t.co/jxN64KVVWe pic.twitter.com/EmaxQB0ha4

CNBC covered the story exclusively and released these details:
Millions of Americans are still hoping for a second round of stimulus checks to help them cope with the financial fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, the U.S. government is preparing to distribute vaccinations to the American public in order to put an end to the public health crisis.
Now, one proposal aims to help both efforts by giving people $1,500 stimulus checks in exchange for getting immunized.
The idea comes from entrepreneur John Delaney, a former Democratic congressman for Maryland who also ran for president in 2020.
“The faster we get 75 percent of this country vaccinated, the faster we end Covid and the sooner everything returns to normal,” Delaney said in an interview with CNBC.com.
Baiting poor people who are desperate for financial resources is cruel manipulation.

No. You will honestly never learn that you cannot withhold their much needed stimulus check as a carrot for a medical treatment. John this is so wrong and I’m in the Pfizer trial.

Fox 5 News dropped these details:
Would you take a COVID-19 vaccine in exchange for another stimulus check? That is what one politician is proposing to entice Americans to get vaccinated.
According to CNBC, former Democratic congressman and presidential candidate John Delaney suggests giving Americans willing to take the vaccine a $1,500 stimulus check.
“The faster we get 75 percent of this country vaccinated, the faster we end Covid and the sooner everything returns to normal,” Delaney said in an interview with the news outlet.
The proposal faces some major hurdles, considering Congress has yet to come to an agreement on a new stimulus package amid the pandemic. The last stimulus check sent to Americans was back in March.
Former Rep. and 2020 candidate John Delaney says Americans should be paid $1,500 to take a coronavirus vaccine.
