With far fewer people, WI's COVID new caseload more than doubles New York State's

Let some sick numbers which are driving the poisoning of Wisconsin people and policies sink in:

While WI GOP legislators' leaders are continuing months of COVID-19 coddling by freshly joining a lawsuit aimed at overturning Gov. statewide COVID masking prevention order, Wisconsin's new positive case tally of 17,641 in the previous week is more than double New York State's new caseload of 7,877 - and New York with about 19.5 million people is more than three times Wisconsin's population of 5.85 million.

And Wisconsin has population densities in its populous areas nowhere near New York State's historically crowded neighborhoods, high-rise dwellings, massive office complexes, complex transit systems where COVID-19 can be expected to easily spread.

In fact, Wisconsin's relentlessly faster-spreading outbreak is sending more new COVID patients to ICUs than are getting that treatment across all of Canada

Yet Wisconsin GOP legislators remain on their campaign season-facilitating and extensive fully-paid vacation here, so are add to the problem they have enabled through self-centered sloth.

People of good will across party lines In Wisconsin have to vote out these failed office-holders and begin planning recalls of the most deleterious incumbents who remain in office after Nov. 3rd. because their unscientific dismissiveness - 

- or outright policy obstruction which has accelerated an out-of-control public health emergency.

Legislators swear an oath to faithfully and impartially carry out their duties to the best of their ability, but undermining the Democratic Governor's COVID-prevention obligations by sitting on the sidelines since March while the worst pandemic in a century rages on here makes this oath into just another COVID victim:

swear (or affirm) that I will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the State of Wisconsin, and will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of said office to the best of my ability. So help me God.
