Responding to Governor Phil Murphy comparing those who choose not to get the COVID vaccination to drunk drivers, Senator Ed Durr said the comparison is wrong.
“Governor Phil Murphy was wrong to compare the unvaccinated to drunk drivers,” said Durr (R-3). “It’s the kind of rhetoric that unnecessarily scares people, which has been the Democrats’ strategy all along.”
“As elected officials, we have an obligation to speak truth to the people,” Durr continued, “And, the truth is the science tells us the Omicron variant is being transmitted by both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.”
“It’s time for the governor to stop the dangerous rhetoric, follow actual science, leave the political science to the consultants, and end his unpopular vaccine and mask mandates,” Durr concluded.
