Hasty: Governor Abbott’s Sympathy Doesn’t Help Closed Businesses
On Friday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Hasty talked about Texas Governor Greg Abbott's visit to Lubbock, and the inconsistency of forced closures still affecting many businesses, while other businesses are allowed to remain open.
These bar owners don't care about your sympathy Governor...The governor gives no timeline. He says that we need to see the positive rate go back below ten percent for a sustained period of time. Well what is that? A month? Two months? Three months, four months? A year?
Hasty continued, saying,
The governor of Texas believes it's safe to play football. He believes it's safe for you to go to a football game. He believes that it's safe for kids to go to school, for teachers to go to school. But if you want to go to a wine tasting, oh no, no no no no. You want to go to Llano winery and taste some of their wines? That's where the 'rona is going to get you. It makes zero sense....These are real business. These are real people. And guess what: If it can happen to those businesses, it can happen to yours. That's why I hate what's going on...Because one person, whether it's right or wrong, we should at least have a debate about this. One person is deciding whether an industry lives or dies in this state, and that is so wrong.
