Common sense has been a more reliable guide than the CDC since the beginning of this thing— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) May 13, 2021
Joe Biden came out today and announced the good news that public health experts had concluded that it is pointless for people who have been vaccinated to continue wearing masks outdoors.
“WASHINGTON (AP) — In a major step toward returning to pre-pandemic life, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eased mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people on Thursday, allowing them to stop wearing masks outdoors in crowds and in most indoor settings.
“Today is a great day for America,” President Joe Biden said during a Rose Garden address heralding the new guidance, an event where he and his staff went without masks. Hours earlier in the Oval Office, where Biden was meeting with vaccinated Republican lawmakers, he led the group in removing their masks when the guidance was announced.
“If you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask,” he said, summarizing the new guidance and encouraging more Americans to roll up their sleeves. “Get vaccinated — or wear a mask until you do.” …”
We’re with Joe on this.
There is one small problem for Joe Biden.
The progressive base doesn’t want life to return to normal. They don’t believe that vaccines are effective. They don’t really care about science or public health. It was never about that. They want everyone to continue going on wearing masks anyway. Wearing a mask has become a fashion statement for them and an excuse to scold and control the lives of others. Now Joe is asking them to give this up and even worse he is talking about taking away their temporary COVID unemployment benefits.
