Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell is threatening that if Americans don’t get the COVID19 vaccine the country will be locked down again.
“A fresh wave of pandemic lockdowns like the ones that crippled the country last year loom on the horizon if people don’t wise up and get vaccinated against COVID-19, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warned,” according to the New York Post. [emphasis added]
“‘These shots need to get in everybody’s arms as rapidly as possible or we´re going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don’t yearn for — that we went through last year,’ McConnell (R-Ky.) said at a news conference Tuesday, adding, ‘This is not complicated.’ [emphasis added]
“Asked about comments from Utah Gov. Spencer Cox alleging that conservative pundits are killing people with their rhetoric, McConnell stated that he encourages everybody to ‘ignore all of these other voices that are giving demonstrably bad advice.’…
“A new Axios Ipsos poll highlights the difficulties that government officials have had in convincing a significant segment of the American population to take the jab: Of the unvaccinated respondents to that poll, fully half said they are ‘not at all likely’ to take it.”
