Well known show host Rush Limbaugh has a theory that blue state Democrat governors are trying to ruin the economy with their persistent shutdowns, stay at home orders, and not letting everyone back to work fast enough.
Some of the Democrat run states are pushing lockdowns further back. Some locations like California are even trying to keep people home until after summer.
Meanwhile, the government has completely failed the American individual. They think sending us a one time check for $1200 was enough to get by - and after all this time, some people haven't even received their measly payment yet.sponsor
Not to mention that $1200 in a city like Philadelphia or NYC doesn't go far, won't cover the rent or normal bills people have like utilities, car payments, food, etc.
The next relief bill pandered by Nancy Pelosi, a complete waste of skin as a House Speaker, doesn't do much for the individual either - but hey, keep sending millions to pet projects or local government who will squander and waste the money themselves.
Rush Limbaugh goes into some details on why he thinks the blue states specifically are possibly trying to burn down the country and economy.
Limited Supply - Order Now!
On one hand, any state that is opening slowly, in stages, and using their data to make decisions - they are smart. Doesn't matter if they are red or blue, they are using real information to base their decisions on. That's called being the smarter state leader.
But if your state is canceling things in August and it's only mid-may - then you need to investigate them and their reasoning to cancel things that far in advance when we have no idea what the data will be a week or month from now. We could kick this thing in June and would they still remain closed until August?
Here's what Rush is thinking...
RUSH: I’ll tell you something else that’s starting to send red flags up. You probably have already noticed this. All these blue state governors that want to keep their states locked down, it’s purely political. But what are they depending on? They’re depending on the red states — the red states that are opening up! The red states are gonna get the economy kickstarted.
The red states are gonna create capital and money to transfer to pay these people their stupid welfare costs (and whatever else they’re using to bleed this country dry), while their population sits home, doesn’t work, waits for the federal check to show up — and they sit around and they trash the supposedly reckless red states. I cannot tell you how this irritates me.
The red state governors — like Kemp in Georgia and any number of these people — are doing the right thing. They’re trying to get their people back to work, for all the right common-sensical human and humane reasons — to protect lives — to protect livelihoods, the United States economy, the state economy. And then you go to a blue state, and it’s the exact opposite.
They shut down and lock down, and they want to remain locked down until July or August or whatever — and nothing’s gonna open and nothing is gonna happen. And they fully expect the red states to sit there and essentially pay for it. Folks, I’m gonna tell you, these next four months are gonna be a veritable war like we have not seen.
