  • Ventura, CA (1888PressRelease) April 09, 2020 - Today Ronda Kennedy, the Republican candidate for Congress in California’s 26th District, denounced a proposal by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for ‘coronavirus reparations.’ Ocasio-Cortez said that inequality is a preexisting health condition and that minority and low-income communities should receive coronavirus relief in the form of reparations. Ocasio-Cortez is proposing the ‘coronavirus reparations’ be placed in any new stimulus bill and be available to members of the minority community. Kennedy slammed the position stating that the pandemic knows no racial, gender, or economic difference as it afflicts and kills people. She said that as an African American, she found Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal disgusting and shameful. Kennedy further stated that while thousands are suffering and dying in the United States, and millions are being forced into unemployment these racially divisive demands are especially despicable. She said this was nothing but an attempt by Democrats to pander in an effort to win the African American vote which is slipping away from them. Kennedy challenged Congresswoman Julia Brownley to state if she was for ‘coronavirus reparations’ with a simple yes or no response.

    “Thousands of Americans are suffering or dying from coronavirus with reports that we have yet to reach peak,” said Sam Peters. “This deadly pandemic does not differentiate between race, color, creed, gender, religious preference, or economic status. It strikes everyone equally. All of humanity is susceptible to its grasps. For any United States Representative to play the race card and demand reparations because of this pandemic is disgraceful. Thousands are dying and she plays racial politics. Shame on Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and anyone who supports this. This is totally disgusting.

    “I call on Congresswoman Brownley answer these questions,” continued Kennedy.
    1. Do you support ‘coronavirus reparations, yes or no?
    2. Do you believe the doctors and health care workers in the frontlines in the 26th District battling this pandemic are treating people differently because of their race, yes or no?
    3. Do you believe the coronavirus is only afflicting minorities, yes or no?
    4. Will you denounce this proposed legislation?
