Progressive NY Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was not pleased with Texas Governor Abbott’s decision to repeal the state’s mask mandate and reopening businesses 100%.
93.2% of Texans aren’t fully vaccinated.
The state just endured one disaster worsened by selfishness + denial of basic science, and now conditions are being set for another.
Repealing the mask mandate now endangers so many people, especially essential workers & the vulnerable.
She added in a follow-up tweet:
This endangers the entire country and beyond. We are in a pandemic. We know that COVID spread isn’t neatly contained by state borders, and explosions in COVID cases can increase the likelihood of new COVID variants to develop or spread to new places. It’s dangerous.
