GOP governor: 'I don't believe I am costing lives' by refusing to act on coronavirus

By Dan Desai Martin -March 26, 2020 2:34 PM

Gov. Mike Parson ignored the advice of the Missouri State Medical Association, which called for stay-at-home orders to stop the spread of the virus.

Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO) has so far rejected the advice of medical professionals as the coronavirus pandemic grew in his state, and now he is claiming no responsibility for the harm his decisions may be causing.

On Monday, the Missouri State Medical Association called on Parson to issue a stay-at-home order to help slow the spread of the coronavirus in the state.

"If things progress as is, COVID-19 patients will deplete the state's available hospital beds, ventilators, and precious personal protection equipment," the group's letter to Parson stated. "Any additional time without a 'shelter-in-place' requirement wastes crucial health care resources, including manpower."

On Wednesday, Kansas City public radio station KCUR reported that Parson rejected that advice, saying such an order would hurt the economies of rural communities in the state.

4. MO is a state that did not expand medicaid under ObamaCare. As a consequence rural hospitals are

dying. Whether rural residents are infected with COVID-19 or not, they are generally older and have plenty of CVD and related health risks. They will be competing for hospital care with COVID-19 in St. Louis, Kansas City and in the regional hospitals. Guess who will lose out?

What a damned fool.

10. I thought along similar lines per rural people.

If there are beds available, they get med evaced to a big city. But if big city beds are full, the rurals are out of luck.

5. Rural counties are EXACTLY who is at risk from this virus -- 1 in 8 Trump voters live in a county

without a single ICU bed!

13. and the rural counties are slower to act

Gov Coathanger closed the schools after the districts had made the decision to close, and that's only until April 6, some schools are closed for the next month

6. He's too stupid to be in charge of anything more challenging

than putting his dirty socks in the laundry hamper.

This is what Trump created, a country more concerned with making the rich richer while everyone else quite literally drops dead.

8. Our GOP governor

Refuses to act, and Florida has over 4x the number of cases.

Obviously drawing them a picture doesn’t work.

12. Gotta love this new GOP logic.......

"I'm making this decision."

"I take no responsibility for the results of this decision."
