With the Covid-19 pandemic in full swing nationwide, with Friday's count at 54,441 positive cases and 906 deaths (just one day), Republicans still won't budge on masks or anything else.
Rightists claim COVID-19 was a hoax and a money making Democratic plot (Breitbart) to shut down the economy blah, blah, blah…why don't the Democrats ever tell me their plans?
Wisconsin Pandemic Spreads to New Levels: In just one day:
Saturday's 2,892 positive cases, 19 more people have died. Wisconsin's outbreak is among the worst in the nation:
With Republicans blaming Democratically run cities for everything, it should be of interest to #TrumpTrash that Republicans controlled Jefferson County, and it's no conservative utopia:
What Wisconsin Republicans didn't expect was an uncontrolled statewide rise that should have forced them into action. But still, they won't budge or change their mindless excuses.
COVID-19 took a back seat to "procedure" and "freedom," as Rep. John Nygren and Sen. Duey Stroebel whine that Gov. Evers didn't go to the legislature first , which didn't matter since a "one-size-fits-all" solution is out of the question. And that's the big reveal here. WKOW's Capitol City Sunday:
"There is a correlation," State Sen. Rob Cowles, R-Green Bay, said of the rising hospitalizations in Wisconsin. "Precisely the correlation? We don't know. But there's no doubt that things have gotten worse." That day, a hospital in northeastern Wisconsin had to treat people in hallways because it was so overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients."Sen. Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, said "There is not a scientific consensus that using face coverings have been proven to stop the spread of COVID. In the place of evidence, face masks have become a politicized mental placebo."
Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt, R-Fond du Lac, gave a similar argument against Evers' extension of the mask mandate, saying "statistics show that Wisconsin’s mask mandate has been ineffective in controlling the spread of the virus."
Rep. Scott Allen, R-Waukesha, said the same day: "Data is in: masks either hurt or do not seem to make a difference." Allen tested positive for COVID-19 five days later.
According to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll. In two separate questions, 72% said that Trump did not take the "risk of contracting the virus seriously enough," nor "the appropriate precautions when it came to his personal health."They're just not Republicans, they're dumbasses too:
