FOX Business’ Stuart Varney, in his latest “My Take,” argues that Democrats are using the coronavirus to their political advantage.
“I guess this is politics 101: How to use the virus to get what you want when you can’t get it at the ballot box,” he said. “I’ll call it virus abuse.”
In Illinois, Varney said, Gov. J.B. Pritzker is prompting for $40 billion in taxpayer money to be reallocated to states in need of coronavirus relief, but $10 billion would be going towards retired government worker pensions.

Varney said Speaker Pelosi is using the coronavirus to push “universal income schemes” where every adult in America receives a monthly payment, “no strings attached.”
