Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Pay People to Stay Home’ to Lower Coronavirus Cases

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., suggested Thursday that the U.S. “pay people to stay home” to curb the spread of coronavirus. 

“To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home,” she wrote.

Ocasio-Cortez’s office could not be reached to elaborate on what the congresswoman meant, be it the stalled Covid relief package or some other set of direct payments. 

Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., had another suggestion: “We need to send every American a check until this crisis is over.”

On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez knocked Republicans for failing to reach a consensus with Democrats on coronavirus relief.
