Let’s see, the Republican party now days is mostly right-wing, whack-job, fake Christians who want to assemble in large groups
I think the article did a pretty good job of making the point that the Christians who insist on assembling are in a small minority. Perhaps you missed that picture of Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square.
and put the rest of us at risk by taking their contagion out into our communities.
Well, freedom has always had a price, eh?
Republicans have voted to cut, cut, cut agencies that actually serve us like, oh let me think, the CDC, rural hospitals, stockpiling pandemic supplies BEFORE an outbreak, which has caused unnecessary deaths
If you go back and look at the budgets of all these agencies, you’ll find that not a single one of them has had less money in a fiscal year than they had in the previous fiscal year. Not one.
Further, part of the federal pandemic response “plan” was *always* that the states needed to be the ones managing those stockpiles. I am not aware of a single state that followed through on those federal recommendations.
You know, the federal government cannot possibly indemnify a population of nearly 330 million against every crisis that may arise.
, and failing to expand Medicaid in the states they control
I can’t speak for other states, but expanding Medicaid was constitutionally impossible in Texas. It really wasn’t something which was open to interpretation or discussion. It was a massive unfunded mandate from the federal government which simply could not have been met without disabling the state’s economy, due to the constitutional restrictions on taxation which are somewhat different than most states.
, not to mention the tanking of our economy because people can’t go back to work without testing.
Yea….it’s kind of hard to acquire 327 M tests for a disease you were being told was not contagious up until mid-January. Put a different party in power…..same result.
SO — does that make Republicans and the Dolts who put them in office murderers? Or should we just call them traitors?
Hm. You consider that statement to be …. sane?
