Oh, the irony of the radical left!
All of this time that President Trump has been saying that we need to reopen the economy, the Democrats have been fighting him tooth and nail and have been making Americans suffer as a result.
Now that Joe Biden will become the next President, the Democrats have decided to embrace President Trump's philosophy.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for New York to reopen now. He says that we can't just wait for everyone to be vaccinated before doing something. If we wait for too long, there won't be anything left.
"We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely."

Well, duh! That's what we've been saying the whole time! Now he waits until New York is at its highest point in terms of new cases before deciding on this plan?
Cuomo also held his State of the State address on Monday and laid out a plan to stop the spread of the coronavirus while addressing the financial struggles in the state.
“First, we must defeat COVID and beat back the assault as the virus rages in these next few months. It will not be easy. High-performing hospital system as well as the diligence of New Yorkers are the keys to stop the spread,” he said.
“Second, the vaccine will end the COVID crisis. We must vaccinate 70% to 90%, and we must do it safely and fairly. We must also learn the glaring and costly lessons of America’s failed public health system, so we are better prepared for the next time ... Third, we must deal with the short-term economic crisis. A record $15 billion state deficit,” he continued.
Donald Trump Jr. said exactly what we're all thinking on Twitter,
"Brilliant strategist... it's incredible that no one thought of this months ago!"
