Republicans aren’t happy.
Recently on NBC, Gov. Phil Murphy (D-NJ) claimed that it was “almost undebatable” that the U.S. needed to have a national requirement for face masks.
According to Breitbart, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked, “Do you think there should be a national mask requirement?”
Murphy replied, “I do. I do, Andrea. It’s become almost undebatable. As I mentioned, this virus is more lethal inside than outside. When you leave your house put on a mask, there ought to be a national requirement.”
Then, when discussing delaying restaurant re-openings, Murphy stated, “We have nothing, but sympathy for them, believe me. It’s why we need direct federal cash assistance to states so that we can help those restaurants and small businesses out, but the choice is either we open inside or based on the data that we saw and the lethality of this virus inside or we lose people, we literally lose lives. When you combine indoors, lack of ventilation, sedentary, close proximity, and you have to take your mask off to eat, and those are bad facts, and we’re just not there yet. We’ll get there, I hope, but we’re not ready for it.”
