Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 08, 2021

Like seemingly everything else in America, the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked its fair share of bitter, polarizing debates: over masks, over distancing, over vaccines. Lockdowns are no exception. One assumption many Americans seem to make is that the more a government limits gatherings, mandates masks, restricts business activity and advises residents to stay at home, the more economic damage it will do. Among the loudest of these voices is Florida Gov.

Republicans want normal people to do worse economically. Republicans only want successful people to do better economically. And if you're up or you're not successful.

Doing worse economically is a core Republican value.

And just look at the red States. On average, yhey are economically worse off than the blue States.

Wow. I'm shocked this thread hasn't gotten any play.

I figured Madbomber would have gotten some kind of sign to address this.
