Missouri’s health care system remains stable.

Some of the responses:
If you are concerned about getting the #COVID #vaccination, please get the facts from the scientists. [….]
“Stable” is what you say about a patient that may get better or may die. It’s not something you say about something doing well.
Why can’t you just come right out & say to your voters “please get vaccinated today, it’s safe and effective” that’s all – just keep saying that everyday. Maybe make a trip (like the one to Branson or Liberty or Kearney but talk about vaccines. That is how you serve your voters.
It would actually be a more effective PR strategy to just help people instead of ignoring the problem. Just saying.
Keep telling yourself that.
Is this the opening line of your stand-up act, Gomer? Because it’s the best joke I’ve heard all day.
Mike ignored not just science but math, so #Missouri has taken a bath as his new cases soar. Of the toll he lost score in the face of the variant’s wrath but he keeps his head stuck in the sand, now and then at events to grandstand. [….]
Totally normal thing to say when things are going well
When you have to send patients hours away to hospitals in larger cities that is not a stable healthcare system for rural Missourians. The elected GOP in this state have failed their constituents by politicizing a virus that is causing their voters harm.
Parson must be back at the family farm this weekend, because he is shoveling some bullsh*t this morning.
Sure sure. Stable as in the infection rates are going UP.
Hospitals are turning away covid patients. @GovParsonMO is incompetent.
You know nothing about the stability of our health care system. You’re too busy with photo ops and propaganda. [….]
You mean what we’re seeing with our own eyes is not what we’re seeing?? Your COVID-19 leadership = callous indifference to human life.
If you are going to continue to lie why not say this:
Trump made you a big beautiful vaccine. The most beautiful vaccine. A special one just for MAGA. So come get the bigliest beautiful vaccine. Only for you, his special ones.
Our state government is an international joke
Repeating lies does not change the facts.
Missouri’s health care systems, especially in rural communities that listen to you and your party over professionals and science, are strained nearly to breaking.
You did nothing to promote the vaccine! NOTHING. And now the Delta variant has become the dominant strand in Missouri. You have blood on your hands.
As is the rise in COVID hospitalizations in your state.
Right, and you’re a very stable genius.
You’re in denial.
Not even close, thanks to your incompetence. [….]
Had a woman tell me the vaccine is poison. I’m assuming these are the kind of people that voted for you. We are the laughing stock of the country. It’s you’re inability to lead that’s getting people sick here.
Excuse me, Governor—what the f&@k does that mean, exactly? And by the way, if you had the courage to push vaccines as a remedy to the pandemic (instead of the “availability” of vaccines), maybe you wouldn’t need to comment on the “stability” of the health care system.
Don’t you want MORE for Missouri than merely “stable” (your word)? Don’t you want Missouri citizens’ health THRIVING? “Stable” sounds like you’re totally fine with people getting sick and dying.
Why not put a little effort into getting shots in arms? You’re a terrible governor.
People die, but the system is in good shape. You’re a weird dude, Parson. Not running again, yet you are such a coward and somehow proud of being a national embarrassment.
Get the fuck out of office & let someone competent take over.
LOL what are you talking about? How can the GOVERNOR be so out of touch with the realities of his own state?
Or are you a shameless liar?
Our state is #1 in the nation for per capita covid cases, only 39% are vaccinated, our death rate is raising, and our state has been declared the least safe state during the pandemic. We are failing under your leadership and you are out on a Bicentennial tour. Kindly fuck off
If you haven’t already done so, get vaccinated.
Don’t be like Mike.
Wear your damn mask.
