Are you tired of all the new rules the government has thrust upon the people over the last six months?
Joe Biden isn’t.
He said this week that he wants to require all Americans to wear masks outdoors, for at least three months.
FOX News reports:
Biden calls for mandate requiring all Americans to wear masks
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday called for a nationwide mask mandate to help fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Every American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months at a minimum,” Biden told reporters in Wilmington, Del.
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee spoke after sitting down for a briefing on the coronavirus with public health experts. He was joined at the briefing by his newly named running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California.
“Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide starting immediately and we will save lives. The estimates are we will save over 40,000 lives in the next three months if that is done,” Biden emphasized.
And the former vice president stressed that wearing a mask “increases exponentially the prospect that if you are a carrier and you don’t even know it, that you will not infect anyone if you cough, sneeze, sing, shout.”

The science isn’t even settled on this issue.
Joe Biden & Kamala Harris are calling for a nationwide mask mandate.
This would be counterproductive.
The American people don’t like being told what to do.
The science doesn’t support mandating a mask in every locality in this country, many of which are having no issues.

One other thing. How are the American people supposed to believe this would only last three months?
Remember when the lock downs started and they said it would only be two weeks to slow the spread?
