The Badass Truth Graph of Republican Politics and COVID

The numbers on this moving graph are the total confirmed normalized* cases per million for each state since June.
A '10,000' means 1% of the state's population has tested positive of COVID since June 1.
June 1 was chosen as it was around that time that countries worldwide that had been sucker-punched months before had the opportunity to apply proven preventative measures.
It also provided an opportunity to contrast the resulting data with states' political affiliations, using the Cook Partisan Voting Index.

The results suggest a strong correlation between a state's political leanings and its ability to employ proven science to slow the spread of COVID.

Sorry this can't be shown here but it's definitely worth the click.

1. Pukes always have another side to everything. That is why

they don't understand that Covid-19 is not an opinion.

2. Too bad for them. They're killing off their base with their alt-reality.

4. And they've got 'til next April-- vaccine distribution time --to live and die in their alt-reality.

Thoughts and prayers indeed.

5. The results show such a stark difference.

Unfortunately, there is going to be a huge financial burden--especially in those red states.

6. Agree. Yet it's not as if they've been any different in the past.

A relatively old graphic



Maybe there will be an update about how some in the tax giver column are now in the tax taker column because of COVID, and vice versa.

Let's say our total tax payout for 2019 was the usual -- about $7.8 TRILLION -- it's not as if we can't afford to help ourselves and postpone the Fed/Treasury debt for a year or two.

The U.S. can really afford what it wants to afford. Austerity Repubs just want to convince us that we don't want to afford other Americans.
