Far-left congresswoman deflected from this catastrophe that her policies created

Democrat strongholds are crumbling.

Bad leadership is at the heart of the cities’ problems.

And a far-left congresswoman deflected from one catastrophe that her policies created.

Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, one of the members of the radical left-wing “Squad” that were elected in 2018, is blaming business for the failure of left-wing policies.

A Walgreens pharmacy in a predominantly black neighborhood of Boston closed down, which triggered Pressley to call the company racist.

Instead of blaming pro-crime policies that drive up operating costs, it was Walgreens’ fault for not lighting money on fire.

Pressley said on the House floor, “Walgreens is planning to close yet another pharmacy in the Massachusetts 7th, this time on Warren Street in Roxbury, a community that is 85% black and Latino…This closure is a part of a larger trend of abandoning low-income communities like the previous closures in Mattapan and Hyde Park, both in the Massachusetts 7th. When a Walgreens leaves a neighborhood, they disrupt the entire community and they take with them baby formula, diapers, asthma inhalers, life-saving medications, and, of course, jobs…These closures are not arbitrary and they are not innocent…They are life-threatening acts of racial and economic discrimination.”

The closings are most certainly not arbitrary.

The Left think that companies can easily absorb theft because they have insurance, but they have no concept of how a business works.

Insurance is for emergencies, not chronic behavior.

If someone got in a car accident every day, his premiums would be through the rough, and eventually he would be uninsurable.

Mass shoplifting is not harmless, and it leads to these types of closures.

Pressley continued, “That is why I joined with Senators Markey and Warren to demand answers from Walgreens’ CEO…Why was there no community input? No adequate notice to customers? And no transition resources to prevent gaps in health care? Shame on you, Walgreens. Having a website with talking points about health equity and underserved communities is not enough. Walgreens is a multi-billion-dollar corporation that needs to put their money where their mouth is and stop divesting from Black and brown communities.”

Walgreens gave advance notice that the store was closing down and said that prescriptions would be transferred to a Walgreens approximately one mile away.

That Pressley would suggest Walgreens consult the community regarding a store that was unprofitable reveals the warped mind of a leftist.

It’s easier to blame Walgreens than left-wing policies that create these conditions.
