Eleven state governors, all Republicans, are ignoring the CoronaVirus Pandemic, and refusing to shutdown their states to combat the threat!
At the same time, other Republican states held off, delayed doing so, including
The delay on the part of Georgia, Florida and Texas, all large populated states, is particularly reckless, but even smaller populated states, by not cooperating, insures a higher level of infection, and more deaths.
All of these governors have failed in their responsibility to protect their population, the most urgent job they have.
By all rights, all of these states’ governors should resign in shame, including the ones that delayed to just today!
One other point to make is that many of these states are mostly small in population, much more rural, and are concentrated in the South and Great Plains and Mountain West, all states known for being much more backward in their concern for their citizens!
