Texas Lt. Governor: Grandparents should 'take a chance' with their lives to save the economy (VIDEO)
Dan Patrick, the Lieutenant Governor of Texas, is tired of having to sit inside his home all day. Just like President Trump's sentiment in recent days, he is suggesting all this pain to the economy isn't worth it, regardless of the health risks to people.
"My message is, let's get back to work, let's get back to living, and those of us who are 70 plus, we'll take care of ourselves. But, don't sacrifice the country."
Tucker: "So, you're basically saying that this disease could take your life but that's not the scariest thing to you? There's something that would be worse than dying?"
Patrick: "Yeah. Umm...and look...I'm going to do everything I can to live. But, you know, if you said are you willing to take a chance, you know, if I get sick I'll try to get better, but if I don't I don't. I'm not trying to think in any kind of morbid way, Tucker. But, I'm just saying we have a choice here."
There you have it: The Lt. Governor just told the citizens of Texas that it was okay to take a chance with your lives. What he didn't mention is that by taking a chance with your life, you're also taking a chance with someone else's.
