I am looking left and there is not much to see, but that all depends on your perspective of what is real and what is meant to be. I had this thought that since the vaccinations are slowing down and we all want to get back to a normal life again, that the government could issue $200 vaccination stimulus checks to everyone who has gotten a vaccine, or will get one by August. I think this would do the trick so we could reach heard immunity. Some people don’t need another $200, but most people would like to get this. Some people will not get vaccinated, no matter what and these are the anti-vaxxers who probably believe in some type of conspiracy theory, or they just don’t care about spreading the coronavirus around.
We have made a lot of progress combating this pandemic, but we still have a long way to go, as we have the vaccines, but we need to get those shots into the arms of the citizens. This could be the incentive that allows all of us to survive and sure some people will fight against including Mitch McConnell who has pledged to block Biden on every issue, but I don’t have anything more than the idea and somebody else would have to create a plan. Wouldn’t it be great if life went back to some type of normalcy? I think it would only be fair to include all the people who have already been vaccinated in this stimulus, which would mean that I would get a check, but I am not saying this to be greedy. I hear them saying on TV, how people should be telling others that they were vaccinated and this would encourage the reluctant ones, who just can’t make up their minds to get vaccinated. There is no stronger encouragement in a Capitalist society than money, so if we show them the money like Jerry Maguire said, we can put an end to this. Actually, that would probably make a pretty good name for the legislation, the Jerry Maguire Covid-19 Stimulus package.
