Washington, DC – Media-declared President-elect Joe Biden has started naming who would be involved in his administration if he is ever declared the winner of the 2020 election. In his first move, he named a coronavirus task force to address the continued pandemic. The team did not waste any time.
Dr. Michael Osterholm immediately started suggestions to help combat the Chinese virus that has disrupted life throughout 2020 across the world. His first suggestion? A national shut down.
In his comments, he said that the US could get a handle on the pandemic if they shut down the country for 4-6 weeks. Osterholm suggested that the government cover expenses and payroll while we shut everything down. You can see his comments below.
One of Biden's new coronavirus task force doctors floating the idea of a 4-6 week lockdown:

Biden and his advisors have come to the conclusion that he may not be able to force a national mask mandate, at least not constitutionally. So it is obvious they will want to look at other measures. There is no way that they will simply let this pandemic go without changes.
Osterholm said that the terminology of lockdown was confusing. He said that Americans do not understand what the purpose is all about.
As he continued to build support for his national lockdown, he said that there is enough money for the country to borrow to pay for employees, cities, states, county governments, and more. He said that a national lockdown was necessary to drive the numbers down.
President Trump has shared that Democrats would quickly want to move back into lockdowns if they were in control. They wasted no time showing that. They have intentions of forcing Americans into submission.
They are of the mindset that the federal government knows best. They believe that you should rely on the federal government for a paycheck and for the necessities of life. While I agree that the coronavirus is an issue, we simply cannot let the virus control our lives.
Instead, the Democrats propose that the virus controls your life and everything in it. Or actually, they are proposing that the government controls your life and everything in it. This is just a sign of what is to come.
