Guv Kelly Fights GOP Over COVID Cash

This is one the best reports we've read on the political debate along partisan lines in Kansas as CARES ACT cash quickly runs out.

Of course there's the typical chatter over spending priorities . . . HOWEVER, a right-wing money line about the reality of the pandemic is something that our blog community should find relevant . . .

Sen. Jim Denning, R-Overland Park, wanted to make sure there was funding for a public information campaign on following COVID-19 guidelines.

“We got to convince, educate the Kansas populace that we got to mask up, we got to avoid crowds, we need to not go to the bars after 10 o’clock ... we need to get that message out and we need to spend some CARES money,” he said. “We’re in a exponential spread as far as a virus spread. That’s a terrible place to be.”

Governor, legislators fight for control on remaining CARES Act spending

With only 30 working days left before the spending deadline, the governor and legislative leaders in the State Finance Council met Friday to appropriate the remaining reserve funds, as well as take action on any potential leftover COVID-19 relief money."As a very practical matter, we have to get those dollars into the programs that can actually execute and get dollars out the door," said the state Recovery Office's Julie Lorenz.

Public info campaign. Sheesh! You aren't convincing anybody at this point. Dr. Faucistein and others blew it in the beginning and people have figured out the game.

^^^ There's no game. Even Republican is trying to warn people. You're coming dangerously close to spreading false information Dave/Bandit. Give it a rest and stop spamming this blog.

You fucking idiots are still whining because Fauci didn't have perfect knowledge on day one?? What a stupid excuse to kill your mom. Do you just want her house?

Did you study Fauci and his profiting on the AIDS vaccine before you commented? Sometimes people don't see the whole picture, just what they want to make excuses for.
