Sen. Todd Young on new CDC mask guidance, wages

Indiana Senator Todd Young doesn’t want to see his state, or the country, reverse course in the fight against COVID.

“Our kids belong in school,” Young told FOX Business. “Hoosiers and other Americans want to be at work, and we should look at this (new CDC) guidance and follow the science. But in the end, we should do what we’ve done in the state of Indiana, which is make responsible, balanced, risk-based decisions, while understanding that there’s no risk-free environment in this world.”

He added that “we should encourage our neighbors and other Americans to get vaccinated for their own health and for their neighbors’ health.”

Young also discussed the rising cost of living in the United States. He says it’s nice that some companies are offering higher wages, but at the same time, when prices of everything else goes up, it defeats the purpose.

“We have a cost of living tax increase effectively occurring on the American people right now,” he said. “Gasoline and groceries. You go to a restaurant, pay for a meal, those prices are going up. Housing costs are increasing.”

“So, though our president promised that we would not see any tax increases whatsoever on Americans who make $400,000 or less in household income, we’re, of course, seeing that. Though their wages may be rising in certain instances, as the economy opens back up, we’re seeing prices increase.”

Yet he voted to move the massive “infrastructure” bill forward in the US Senate. As if the word “infrastructure” somehow makes it all OK to bankrupt the country. Just like clockwork we hear nothing from Todd Young for 4.5 years. then he magically comes out of his Rumpelstiltskin stupor to tell us he is doing a great job for Hoosiers.

If you want to stop the decline of this country we need to find political candidate who will relentlessly obey their oath of office.

Did you make that squirrel joke up all by yourself? Are you smarter then a 3rd grader? I think not.

Todd Young has also REPEATEDLY introduced a bill to give the Federal government more power to abolish single family home zoning. It is called “Yes in My Backyard” and its intent is to destroy the suburbs. This is exactly what the left was clamoring for with AFFH.

Todd Young is a RINO traitor and needs to be primaried ASAP. DO NOT GIVE HIM ANY SUPPORT!

Right… we need to trust the science but only “The Science” approved by the White house and big tech. I’m sure that things can’t end badly when a population blindly accepts what their government tells them is “The truth”.

He sounds like a wolf in sheeps clothing a democratic in disguise!

Follow the science. Masks don’t stop the virus. Kids a very low risk for a medical event that has a 99.07 survival rate. “the shot” is no vaccine, per CDC definition. Doesn’t protect anyone from getting it, not transmitting to others. people who have had it have antibodies and could be harmed by taking the shot.

Follow the science
