WATCH: Mississippi Governor Fights Potential National Lockdown

As it stands, if Joe Biden becomes President, we can look forward to mandatory masks, even inside, and another national lockdown that can take up to six weeks. It wasn’t that long ago, the first lockdown sent our economy spiraling downward, so it is only fitting that the Democrats would want to do it again. Luckily, the Republicans aren’t going to sit by while they trying to ruin the country.

Speaking in a news conference, the Governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves says he will not take part in any national lockdown that may take place. His comments come just days after Dr. Michael Osterholm said, We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers for losses to small companies to medium-sized companies, for city, states, county governments.”

In a virtual conference, Reeves went into further detail as to why he would not be taking part in a national lockdown. He said, “The fact is that we’re going to try to work with whomever the president is, but we’re not going to participate in a nationwide lockdown. This notion that one of his advisers has said that all we really need is about a six-week national lockdown and we can slow down the spread of this virus is totally and completely beyond reasonableness.”

While some may believe Reeves is acting out of party defiance, the governor claims to be fighting for the average family. “The people of Mississippi can’t just go home and shut down their small businesses … for six weeks, and just think that you can come back six weeks from now, flip a switch and everything’s gonna be fine. It’s not the way the economy works.”

As for the money that would fund another lockdown, it appears no one is claiming where it will come from. As it stands, thousands of American families never even received the first check. Now, they are wanting the same people to believe they will help us out the second time around. Thanks to governors like Reeves and many others around the nation, Americans can rest a little easier knowing their jobs are safe.
