Lockdown Politicians: Lock Them Up … Or at Least Defund Them

Actress Kirstie Alley proposed a plan to withhold salaries from politicians who impose coronavirus lockdowns if those restrictions leave individuals and businesses without income.

“My solution,” the Cheers actress tweeted. “All senators congressmen governors and city political officials from any state or city who impose shut downs to the extent that businesses and people have no form of income, take no salaries for the duration of the shutdown. Leadership leads by example & from the top.”

If you ask me, politicians who impose lockdowns should be arrested and imprisoned. However, suspending their salaries and perks is a good second place option.
