The greatest damage the GOP has done to the United States over the long term is the incessant attack on government and expertise as the sources of our problems rather than solutions.
It started with Ronald Reagan, reached its pinnacle with Trump, and will likely remain an anchor around our necks during my lifetime. I grieve for the ignorance that the GOP has cultivated and grown during my adulthood, all in a craven desire to hold power it cannot gain by fair elections.
I hope local medical professionals will be able to have some impact on this, that we can send more people into communities with low vaccination numbers, and that the thoughtful approaches offering incentives will work. #GetVaccinated #CommunityImmunity
Reaching ‘Herd Immunity’ Is Unlikely in the U.S., Experts Now Believe: https://nyti.ms/2SmTV5H
@TonyStark Republicans didn't even want their valued herd Immunity through vaccines. They wanted people to catch a life-threatening, serious disease and let people die and suffer through to get it.
Party of life, right.
@TonyStark I just can’t help feeling that states are rushing to end restrictions and “get back to normal” when we still get news like this, but I know we can’t stay in lockdown forever. I used to hope that people were going to learn from this experience. Obviously a lot of people won’t.
