WASHINGTON—Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James joined Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s podcast “Hold These Truths” to unpack the National Coronavirus Recovery Commission’s 179 recommendations to safely reopen America.
The two discussed the commission’s approach of tackling both the priority of health safety and economic recovery.
“In order for this thing to work, we as individuals have to take responsibility for our own health,” James said. “Government can’t and shouldn’t be in a position to ‘force’ us to wash our hands, to ‘force’ us to wear masks, ‘force’ us to social distance. But if we accept personal responsibility and do those things on our own, we can see that we can get this country up and running again far quicker.”
