GOP Vendetta Threatens Public Health

WEST POINT, WI – Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-West Point) released the following statement after Senate Republicans voted to strike down a lifesaving health protection.

“As of yesterday 5,699 Wisconsinites have died from this pandemic, yet some Republicans Senators refuse to take COVID-19 seriously. Masks saves lives. At a time when there is a more contagious strain of COVID-19 spreading through communities the last thing Wisconsinites need is non-medically educated Republican politicians turning a life-saving measure into a political statement. It’s dangerous.

“I am fed up with this pandemic as much as the next person. I am also fed up with Republican politicians that refuse to listen to the experts, refuse to do their jobs, and continually exacerbate the problem by not taking this crisis seriously.”
