Could it be that poor policy choices made by blue, democrat-led states resulted in higher unemployment rates?
According to the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, the answer is yes.
The committee pointed out in an email to subscribers Wednesday that the seven states with unemployment rates above 8%, are all run by Democrats.
“This is what is so egregiously unjust about the Biden blue state bailout stimulus bill,” the Committee wrote. “The competent, open states are forced to bailout the reckless lockdown states, both through massive direct cash giveaways to their governments and through weekly unemployment bonus checks.”
In the case of the two states with low unemployment rates that are run by Democrat governors, the Republican legislature overruled the governor and opened schools in Kansas. Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, the Republican state Supreme Court struck down the governor’s lockdown.
