“Here’s what I think government ought to do: Give us good information. Since COVID started it’s been all political. Just give us good information.
“Americans are smart. They will make good decisions for their families, and we can’t go back to fear, fear that kills jobs, fear that shuts down schools, fear that slows everything down, because it hurts all families.
“Here’s what I believe we ought to do at every level of government. Let’s be honest. If you feel comfortable, get the vaccine.
“That’s what I believe we ought to be doing and I’m going to do everything I can to tell people, you know, that I’ve been comfortable with the vaccine. I had COVID, I don’t want anybody to get COVD.
“I hope no one else gets sick. I’ve been blessed. I’ve got grandkids. I don’t want any of them to get sick. So be careful, but let people make their choices. This is not a country where we need people telling us what to do.” – Sen. Rick Scott, today on Fox News.
Sen. Rick Scott, Republican of Florida, with the richest quote from all the Sunday shows so far:

1-doctors/ scientists have been giving good information for a year and a half. Just because republicans don’t follow it doesn’t mean it isn’t there
2-based on people refusing vaccine/ wearing masks, you are quite wrong that many Americans will do the right thing
