I’ve spent a lot of time trying to understand what went wrong and it’s emblematic of other issues we are struggling with in our great country. Remember the phrase two weeks to flatten the curve? That metastasized into this terrible authoritarianism and overreaching that did not make us safer,” Egli ha detto.

People with big yards told people with no yards to stay indoors because that’s where the virus was. Some closed the parks, shamed people about beachesand now threatening the same overreach with the Omicron [variant] ….he told Hannity.

I think those choices should be yours, the American people’s,” Egli ha detto, going on to praise Il presidente Trump handling of vaccino development. “I’ve fought to empower my audience, my patients and now the people of Pennsylvania.

Every choice I make will be serving the citizens of Pennsylvania and the United States and none of them will serve the special interests in Washington, many of which I have been at war at my entire career.

Oz noted how hetook on Big Pharma… and have scars to prove it” nel passato, and also voiced support for forze dell'ordine amid the ‘Defund’ movement.

Oz also told Hannity that his view on education policy is that the people who know best are the parents and local educators, rather than larger government bodies.

So you need choice so you can make sure you can take kids where you need to be – you need local rule… and you need to have your values defended,” Egli ha detto.
