The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed Washington, D.C., Democrats, and President Joe Biden on every issue important to Pennsylvanians, according to GOP Senate primary candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz.
"They got it wrong on inflation, because they didn't realize that taking out over $30 trillion in debt can signal to the world that your currency is not strong," Oz told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on WABC 770 AM-N.Y. "They got it wrong on paying people not to work and giving people too much pajama time, which has hurt the ability of business, especially small businesses, to adequately hire people, so we now we've got underserved supply chain issues
"They got it wrong, Washington has, on our schools, literally force-feeding teachers and kids about issues, values in particular, that parents need to be involved in. We've got problems at the border
"They tell us it's about people who are coming are in trouble. No, it's about a cartel-run, human-trafficking operation. And they're running drugs at the same time. And those drugs, many times, come from China."
Washington just has "different values than we have," Oz added to host John Catsimatidis.
"Washington's got China wrong," he continued. "We don't understand the absolute threat this country poses to us. They must destroy America because, if the world sees that a democracy can create a thriving economy like America, then what's the point of having a Communist Chinese government, a totalitarian-ruled state in order to have an economy?"
Americans are growing wiser to the dangers of big government ruling our lives amid the pandemic lockdowns, travel restrictions, and mask and vaccine mandates.
"Anytime the government has enough power to do everything for you, it has enough power to take it all the way from you," Oz warned. "We witnessed this throughout human history. We don’t want government involved in aspects of our lives where we can take better care of ourselves."
Oz is among a number of Trump-supporting GOP Senate primary candidates who are vying for the seat vacated by Trump-critic Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., who voted to impeach the former president.
"We've got a double-digit lead, and we've held onto that as more contestants entered the fray," Oz told Catsimatidis.
