Forget about death panels. Governor Abbott's preparing to get his corpse convoy rolling.

No. They don't get them. States that refuse to do anything to combat COVID get no support. Period.

The people that elected Bush Governor didn't get smarter after he left.

If seeing their families get sick is the only thing that finally makes people get vaxxed, then so be it.

Better their families suffer than the families of the people who are doing the right thing.

and?

When have Republicans ever had an issue punishing families for something the entire family isn't responsible for?

Parents poor? No school lunch for you!
Parents brought you across the border illegally? You can live in a cage!
Parent did drugs? Kiss those food stamps and rent assistance goodbye and enjoy living under a bridge!

And none of these things can actually kill someone else unlike COVID.

Why do they need this, when Texas is crawling with illegal Mexican ditch diggers?

Abbott should be forced to quarantine in one of those mobile morgues.

Well, hopefully they will prioritize the kids who's parents were vaccinated but the kids couldn't be because of age get put into the coolers I guess.

Is covid suddenly deadlier for kids now? Can you provide some facts to back that up? Because from the data I have seen there have been 350 under 18 covid deaths in the US since the beginning of it, which is on par for the number of kids who die from the flu each year. So, unless you have new data to share, your "put into the cooler" assertion seems to be exceedingly inflammatory and emotional.
