Governor Ron DeSantis has a clear and unequivocal message for President Biden and the rest of the lockdown crowd: Florida WILL NOT be locking down.
The Governor was on FOX News responding to questions about a possible travel ban to Florida being floated by the Biden administration, and proved again why Florida chose the best governor in the nation.
“There’s no basis in medical, there’s no basis in economics, there’s no basis in reality to do this except to punish a state that is doing it better than what his experts have recommended,” said DeSantis. “Biden is a lockdowner. His experts are lockdowners. Lockdowns don’t work. We’ve demonstrated that. We’re not turning back.”
Our governor is focused on lifting people up, while the “lockdown states’” governors are putting people out of business, putting employees out of work, putting children out of school and making life miserable for no discernable gain, but considerable loss.
The numbers continue to show Florida, with its open-for-business freedoms, is doing as well or better than the lockdown states such as New York and California. This is shown with excruciating clarity in the following chart on total increases in mortality per capita.
Shutdowns don’t work.
“There’s a whole bunch of things we’ve been doing for COVID, but at the same time, we’ve lifted our state up, we’ve saved our economy and I think we’re going to be first out of gate once we are able to put COVID behind the country,” DeSantis
Again, we are blessed to have Governor DeSantis leading our state.
