Great. Despite how Scott Bauer wrote story, they didn’t repeal the mask mandate. They repealed Evers’ Emergency Order. Governor Evers has used a string of emergency orders to order a mask mandate and other restrictions to our civil rights. By definition, an emergency doesn’t last nine months. This is just our normal now and there is no reason that we should be living under the rule of one dull grey slow man. This is about returning to the normal law-making process through representative government and exiting an era of personal rule and arbitrary government.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Senate voted Tuesday to repeal Gov. Tony Evers’ statewide mask mandate, despite warnings from virtually every sector of the health care community that doing so would impair efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
Both legislative chambers have to pass the resolution in order to undo the mask requirement. The Assembly, controlled 58-30 by Republicans, scheduled it for a vote Thursday.
The Senate passed the resolution to repeal the mask mandate on an 18-13 vote, with all Democrats and Republican Sens. Dale Kooyenga, of Brookfield, and Robert Cowles, of Allouez, against.
Does anyone know what Kooyenga’s deal is?
This “logic” is seriously flawed. Here’s Kooyenga on why he won’t vote for a resolution suspending Evers’ “mask order.”
…”Governor Evers has not followed the law,” said State Sen. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield). “I have to balance out my priorities here — and right now, my priority is to open our schools. Open the schools, get the kids in the classrooms. And my fear on this resolution is that people in our state will use the actions in this chamber to say, ‘Well, there’s another reason to close our schools.'”…
Soooo… arbitrary rule and abandoning representative government is cool because then the government teachers might go to work? Might…
You missed the mark on this one, Kooyenga.
