Today’s read is from Carina Benton writing in The Federalist. Here’s an excerpt:
At a press briefing last week with Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and representatives of the People’s Convoy, one reporter seemed confused as to the point of the truckers’ protest, given that many mandated have now been lifted. Even conservatives like The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh have superciliously questioned what difference any of this makes.
Cruz explained it this way: “It makes a difference to everyone who’s lost their jobs over these mandates.” For Johnson, it’s about “bringing the truth to the American public.” He argued that although “our response has been a miserable failure … the people that foisted this response on us … will never admit they were wrong.”
