WASHINGTON — Progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar on Sunday called it “shameful” that young, healthy lawmakers — such as fellow “Squad” member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — are receiving the coronavirus vaccine before American seniors and front-line workers. The Minnesota congresswoman has joined a growing number of lawmakers who have vowed not to take the Pfizer miracle drug out of concerns they are jumping the line. “It’s now clear that we don’t have enough vaccines for everyone and there is shortage of supply, we have to prioritize those who need it most,” Omar wrote on Sunday.

“It’s now clear we don’t have enough of the vaccine and there will be shortages...”
I don’t understand this rhetoric, and I’ve heard it from more than just this bitch.

I actually agree with Omar on this one. The most vulnerable should be vaccinated first. Assuming the vaccine is safe of coursw.
Politicans like AOC get vaccinated last. A privilege i would be happy to extend to all politicans.
Of course, if there were a rushed, untested and unsafe vaccine out there, then it stands to reason that the politicans get it before anyone else. I’m sure they should be glad to shoulder such a risk for the nation and it’s people.

And yet, if no politicians take it, people say there’s something wrong with the vaccine.
