The Right shifts from 'it's a real crisis' to 'let grandpa die for the economy' almost overnight - 2020-03-24
Over the weekend the discourse on the Right coldly shifted from "Yes, we finally agree this is pretty serious" to "Y'know, the elderly are gonna die soon anyway and I was hoping my 401K would be around longer."
And now the Lt. Gov of Texas just said pretty much that, out loud, and somehow worse.
That's where the pro-life party is right now in the midst of a genuine pandemic, doing cost-benefit analyses and finding senior citizens expendable. (As an aside: are they aware who keeps them in office? Do they know who watches Fox News?)
