There must be no blue state bailout coming: Cuomo and Lightfoot favor rolling back lockdowns

Among the most draconian lockdown orders come from two leftist politicians, New York governor Andrew Cuomo and Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot. Both of them now favor rolling them back. Why? The virus, which as I've said before is not the 21st century version of the Black Death, the 1918 flu pandemic, or even the Asian flu of 1957, shows no sign of dissipating. In my opinion it's because tax revenues are way down. Well duh!

Here's the key point. I suspect the Cuomo and Lightfoot have gotten the word from Congressional Democrats that there will be no widescale bailout of blue state spendthrifts like New York, Illinois and Chicago, whose financial problems pre-date the COVID-19 epidemic.
