Texans are dying because Abbott listens to pollsters instead of doctors. If he’d done the right thing from the start, we’d probably be re-opening by now. But he didn’t, and so instead we’re seeing record cases, deaths and hospitalizations throughout Texas.…
“[The] choice, to embrace partisan politics & a fringe populist backlash over common sense & sound medical advice from his own advisers, condemned the Lone Star State to the circumstances we face today: Hospitals near the breaking point. Nearly 3,000 Texans dead — and counting.”
“This isn’t the same as ... clownishly calling the Texas State Guard to monitor a federal military exercise because some right-wing conspiracy theorists on the internet were convinced Jade Helm 15 sounded like a government plot to take their guns.”
“Abbott’s actions this time led to widespread sickness and hundreds of deaths.

...elected to represent all Texans, [he] chose to pander to the Republican base and curry favor with Trump, who lauded the “fantastic job” he was doing getting Texas back up & running so quickly.”
“The blame rests with the governor” - Houston Chronicle Editorial Board
