Red states lead recovery: 17 of top 20 states for post-pandemic rebound are led by GOP:
States with Republican governors — many of whom began reopening last year and are rejecting President Joe Biden‘s enhanced unemployment bonuses — are leading this nation’s economic recovery.
Seventeen of the top 20 states for jobs recovered from the coronavirus pandemic are led by the GOP, with the top 12 all run by Republican governors, according to newly released data from the Labor Department. Two red states, Idaho and Utah, have more jobs now than they did pre-pandemic.
Only five Democrat-run states have recovered at least two-thirds of their jobs lost, compared to 17 Republican-led states. The 10 states with the highest unemployment rates are all led by Democratic governors, with the average unemployment rate for the nation’s blue states coming in at 6.3%, two-percentage points higher than the average unemployment rate for the nation’s 27 red states.
While President Joe Biden and the Democrats believe it’s better to pay people not to work, Republican governors are realizing the damage the federal government is doing to their local economies with enhanced unemployment benefits. Twenty-four Republican-led states have decided to end the $300-per-week supplemental unemployment bonuses, with no blue states yet opting out. It’s estimated at the $300 level, 37% of workers could make more money on unemployment than returning to work — so why return? --->READ MORE HERE

Speaking to host Sean Hannity at a town hall for Republican governors Wednesday night, the group of six leaders from Arizona, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, South Dakota and Tennessee said that each were seeing new residents flood their states to escape liberal policies that prevented re-openings.
“[Former President Ronald] Reagan said if the pilgrims landed in California they would have never discovered the rest of the country,” Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said, adding, “Nobody leaves California because they want to.”
“[T]he lack of opportunity is pushing them out,” he continued, calling the Golden State’s declining population “the result of leadership, policy and lack of quality of life and economic opportunity. --->READ MORE HERE
