Red States Get Results, Not Headlines, in Covid Fight----GOD BLESS TRUMP?

On the day that New York governor Andrew Cuomo won his Emmy, the governor of West Virginia announced a plan to vaccinate his state. Since then, Governor Jim Justice’s state has boasted one of the nation’s highest vaccination rates, striking a critical blow to Covid-19 and displaying a distinct heartland model of leadership. While leaders in coastal hubs drew headlines for their press conferences and top-down leadership styles, a number of heartland governors paired efficient government with trust in their communities and people—both to vaccinate and to educate.

Gretchen Garofoli, a local pharmacist in Morgantown, West Virginia, administered one of her state’s first Covid-19 vaccinations—a jab in the arm of a nursing-home patient— on December 15, weeks before any other state could do the same. “It was a beacon of hope,” Garofoli later told NPR. West Virginia is the only state in the country to use independent pharmacies to deliver shots; pharmacists in these communities often know their patients by name. “The more the state collaborates with those at the local, community level, the greater the vaccine uptake,” concluded Christopher Martin, a professor at the West Virginia University School of Public Health. As of mid-February, West Virginians have received more than 400,000 doses of the coronavirus vaccine, and some 8 percent of the population has received at least two jabs (a rate second only to Alaska’s 9 percent).

    I live in Texas, where the Republican experiment in deregulation resulted in millions without power and sky high bills.  Our vaccination rate is only 6% (at our current rate it will take years for us to be property immunized) and people are having to drive from city to city to get appointments.  Other places like Oklahoma, Florida, and Kansas, also dominated by Conservatives are seeing similar economic, infrastructure, and pandemic failures.  

    Live without power for 60 hours and then tell me how great the GOP is doing.  I bet you'd be the first in line to file a personal injury law suit when that happens.

    It's funny how you have to answer your own questions because no one else takes you seriously.
