RELEASE: The Texas Democratic Party on Dan Patrick Suggesting Seniors Die to Save the Economy

Austin, TX — Yesterday, Texas Republican Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick suggested that seniors are willing to die during the coronavirus epidemic to “save the economy.” [FOX News, March 23, 2020]

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“Republicans are not here to protect you or your family. The only thing they are concerned about is enriching themselves and their stock portfolios. They would see our family members die to bail out wall street.

“Texas Democrats believe healthcare is a human right. The lives of our families, our friends, and our communities have no dollar amount.”
