Rep. McCarthy on Democrats' COVID restrictions: This is about power


The House minority leader joined ‘The Faulkner Focus’ to discuss growing calls to reverse COVID restrictions, arguing the shutdowns are not effective.

KEVIN MCCARTHY: This is what so many people have been talking about for so long that it does not really have an effect… how well we were able to go through it. But what does it have an effect on on these shutdowns? How many people missed the cancer screening, the mental health, the suicides for young children? I mean this this shutdown is going to have effects for decades to come. Children being held back in school, not being educated in the process, the mental health damages that’s going to go on for years. Government should lift all these lockdowns, but the White House says one thing and does another. Look at Gavin Newsom just this weekend at a football game, but he’s going to make NFL hand out masks again. You see Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done when no one else is supposed to. They have rules for the but not for me. I mean, that’s what they’ve gone about doing. It’s all about power.
