Texas Lt. Gov Dan Patrick (R) on Monday said that he is willing to take a chance on his survival as a senior citizen for the good of the country’s economy amid the virus outbreak and added that thinks “there are lots of grandparents out there in this country” who feel the same way.
“No one reached out to me and said, as a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren? And if that’s the exchange, I’m all in,” Patrick said during an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program on Monday night.
