We were talking the other day about the ‘Rona vaccine. We were talking about how some don’t trust vaccines and to fight this, three former presidents are willing to take the vaccine on live TV to reassure all that it is safe.

So now the conversation is, 

 

Good question. Trust and credibility with the government regarding the pandemic has taken it’s toll. Those in power know it.

So when former congressman John Delaney (from Maryland) brings up this idea, it just doesn’t set well with me for many reasons.

What Delany is proposing is giving people a $1,500 stimulus check after they get vaccinated. What? As A reward?

“The faster we get 75 percent of this country vaccinated, the faster we end Covid and the sooner everything returns to normal." Delany said.

So his proposed idea in reality is a stimulus check & big vaccine incentive rolled into one.

Got a problem with that?

Congressman Delany’s idea is, the more people get the vaccine, it saves lives, helps people financially, and the $400 B pays for itself w/ economic boost from ending pandemic.

That is a solid argument. I get the economics of this long-term. We are gonna pay for this one way or another.

Another way to think about this is, are you punishing those who DON’T get the vaccine by withholding stimulus money?

Is this social bribery? Is paying someone to take the vaccine a good thing? Will this build a slippery slope where when the government wants you to do something, they give you a chunk of cash?

Would you take the vaccine for free? Or are you going to avoid getting it at all costs? (no pun intended).
