A Country Divided: Democrats and Republicans Split on How the Federal Government is Handling the Crisis

Published

It’s no secret that the Wuhan Virus has had a disproportionate impact on certain parts of the country, while other parts have largely remained unaffected.

A recent Yahoo News report recognized that, in which it noted that “Urban areas, such as New York City, have been harder hit than rural locales and that difference in impacts follows some of the deep partisan political splits in the country.”

There is a clear divide between Democrats and Republicans on the issue of the Wuhan Virus.

So far, there are over 258,000 Wuhan Virus cases according to John Hopkins University’s Coronavirus Resource Center.

Interestingly, the Yahoo piece noted that “About 77 percent of those confirmed cases were in the 490 counties that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. And the overwhelming majority of those Clinton counties, 81 percent, had at least one case.”

On the other hand, “there were more than 2,600 counties that voted for President Trump in 2016, but they hold only 19 percent of the cases. On the whole, only 50 percent of those Trump counties have a single case.”

Particularly revealing are the differing opinions on how members of both parties believe the government should be handling the Wuhan Virus:

More than 65 percent of Democrats believe the federal government is not doing enough to protect life in the outbreak, while only 24 percent of Republicans believe that. And even on the economy, a major concern of the White House, 52 percent of Democrats think the federal government has done too little to blunt the impacts of the coronavirus, while only 40 percent of Republicans believe that.

There is clear polarization in America.

The Wuhan Virus split we see here is similar to the divisions on policy questions such as gun rights and abortion.

As American becomes more politicized on cultural issues, this partisan gulf will only widen.

This does not bode well for American political stability in the long-term.

Rush Limbaugh Announces That His Lung Cancer is Terminal

Published

on

Conservative radio titan Rush Limbaugh announced to his listeners Monday that his lung cancer is terminal.

Recent scans showed that the cancer has progressed despite much treatment and positive results. “It’s not dramatic, but it is in the wrong direction,” said Limbaugh.

Limbaugh announced his cancer diagnosis back in February. President Donald Trump honored the pioneering conservative talk show host with the Medal of Freedom at the State of the Union address shortly thereafter.

Here’s a transcript of what Rush said on his show Monday. Excerpt below:

From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, okay, that’s it. Life’s over. You just don’t know when. But when you get that diagnosis, I mean, that’s… So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life, do what you can to prolong a happy life. You measure a happy life against whatever medication it takes.

And at some point you can decide, you know, this medication may be working, but I hate the way I feel every day. I’m not there yet. But it is part and parcel of this. It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over. Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.

[…]

Stage 1 is just a bunch of little nodules running around, and even if you got a scan that showed a bunch of nodules, they’d say, “Gotta keep a sharp eye on them. There’s some nodules here, some nodules there.” But it really doesn’t present as what it is (this type of cancer) until it’s stage 4 — and stage 4 is, as they say, terminal. So we have some recent progression. It’s not dramatic, but it is the wrong direction.

So we have to tweak the treatment plan, which we did, and the chemotherapy drugs in hopes of keeping additional progression at bay for as long as possible. The idea now is to keep it where it is or maybe have it reduce again. We’ve shown that that is possible. If it happened once, it can happen again. So that’s the objective of the current treatment plan.

We here at Big League Politics will continue to keep Rush and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
