America needs to pump the brakes on Covid-19 restrictions.

The fact that perhaps tens of thousands of New York professionals — doctors, nurses and teachers to name a few — are choosing to walk away from six-figure careers because of vaccine mandates would have been unthinkable in January.
The fact that New York Governor Kathy Hochul could sign an executive order to allow herself to use National Guard members to work in hospitals looks dictatorial at best. Is there no check and balances anymore?
Why is it that a government worker can ask me for my vaxx card and driver’s license to go to dinner, but it is racist if you ask for ID on Election Day?

We the people need to put our foot down and slam the brakes, because our government will not.
