How can it be, 6 months after America’s first case was reported, that the U.S. still doesn’t have a COVID-19 response?

How has wearing a mask, a simple, effective way to slow the spread, turned into a political wedge issue?

The answer to both questions is the same: a Republican Party that has zero interest in effective governing and is concerned solely with maintaining power and profiteering. :vote: :voteblue2:

Why is each state being left to figure this out all by themselves? This is a GLOBAL pandemic. Putting this burden on state and local officials is beyond insanity.

Trump wont let cities police themselves for mostly peaceful protests without national armed intervention, but forcing them to handle the worst pandemic in 100 years is OK?

There are things I don't like about Andrew Cuomo, but he's run circles around Trump and the GOP.

@QueenRamonda Any one of the 24 Democratic governors would do a better job as president. I can't name all 24 Democratic lieutenant governors but I'm sure any of them would as well. @TonyStark

@MariaHill @QueenRamonda @TonyStark My lieutenant governor :pa: is John Fetterman who is a true gem, but even our previous nightmare of a lieutenant governor, Mike Stack, would have done a better job than Trump.

I could tell you about how awful Stack was, but we voted him out of office like we'll do to Trump. Watch this adorable campaign video from 2018 of Gov. Wolf and Lt. Gov. Fetterman instead.
