The chart below shows the difference between the European Union and the United States in their effective handling of Covid-19 to date. You can see that Europe got hit hard first and then quickly started bringing down their number of new infections. The US, even with additional time to act, did worse in limiting the initial onslaught, and then totally failed to bring the numbers down significantly. And this is not per-capita, the EU has a much larger population so the real comparison is even more devastating for the US. And with nearly all of the Republicans and a lot of regular Americans ignoring expert advice, expect the red line on the graph to go off the chart in the coming months.
Why do we put up with such deadly, economy destroying incompetence from the Republicans? Why do we put up with weak national Democrats who measly roll over while all this is happening, doing little more than getting off a few good quips?
