Gov. Brad Little Moves Idaho Back To Stage 2, Calls Up National Guard, But Resists Mask Mandate

Source: Boise State Public Radio

Idaho Gov. Brad Little is rolling Idaho back to a modified version of Stage 2 pandemic restrictions and calling up the National Guard to prop up a teetering healthcare system amid skyrocketing COVID-19 infections in the state.

“We’ve come to the profound conclusion that what we’ve been doing hasn’t been working,” Little said.

But the governor continues to resist growing calls for a statewide mask mandate, despite evidence that such measures have worked in other states.

Idaho is in the grips its worst COVID-19 outbreak since the first state case was diagnosed in mid-March. Deaths have also been rising sharply and health care officials say some hospitals are getting close to having to ration care.

5. What a moron

He will spend the time, effort and money to call out the national guard, but won’t do the simplest, most effective and most inexpensive thing calling for a mask mandate.

The Governor is a Dumbass.

9. The bad part is, he's one of the better governors Idaho has had in a long time

Cecil Andrus (the last Democratic governor we had) was the best governor Idaho ever had. Phil Batt, Dirk Kempthorne, Jim Risch (now Idaho's most worthless senator...the somewhat-competent senator is the one who has to put a tutorial on how to pronounce his name on his Senate website) and Butch Otter were all about as worthless as three-dollar bills with Trump's face on them. Little isn't great, but he didn't have a hell of a lot of competition in 2018.

3. freedom! Like the freedom u experience being strapped down, intubated, and on a ventilator

Little’s compromise approach has angered both the far-right, who see any restrictions as an affront to their freedom,

7. People screaming 'freedom' are actually asking to infect others.

Its not personal choice of individual risk, its collective risk. They are demanding the right to infect and spread this contagion.

8. So true. Just like "religious freedom" usually comes at the expense of another person's religious

freedom. E.g. the "religious freedom" of an employer like Hobby Lobby denying an employee contraception coverage.

4. One Solution

People who aren't wearing masks should be given a citation and asked to sign a waiver that wouldn't allow them to receive state or federal funds for treatment if they contact Covid 19. That might get them to think twice (maybe).

10. they all can go with god, and be free.

I feel bad for anyone who lives in an area getting hard-hit, as the ripple-effects can be so debilitating. But, it's what the majority wants. Put up some road blocks to keep them inside their state, and let her rip.

11. America doesn't ration health care



If only there was something very simple that every American can do to stop the spread of this disease. Nah, better to blame foreigners or liberals or whoever else they want to blame. Maybe it's Biden's fault there's COVID spreading through Idaho.
