Sen. Ted Cruz asserts that Democrats want excessive misery in this election year so that Americans yearn for change and so vote Trump out of office.
He makes the point that leftist politicians are encouraging mass misery by supporting the riots, making mass COVID-19 restrictions, and for the government incentivizing unemployment by paying the unemployed much more than they were paid while working. It's a double hit to businesses which have difficulty staying in business due to COVID restrictions - and because of the inability to hire those incentivized to stay unemployed.
He might surprise you. I really enjoy listening to "Verdict".
