Republicans float plans to stop nursing homes and hospitals from restricting visitors

JEFFERSON CITY — Hospitals and nursing homes in Missouri would lose some of their ability to restrict visitors during a pandemic under legislation being considered in the Legislature.

Republican lawmakers have introduced at least four proposals designed to address concerns that patients and elderly residents lost valuable contact with their loved ones when the spread of COVID-19 triggered prohibitions on visitors.

“Isolation kills. Human beings were created by God to interact with each other,” said Rep. Brian Seitz, R-Branson. “Only God can determine life or death.”

Hospitals and nursing homes are against the changes, saying they need to have the ability to control what goes on inside their doors.

8. Black eye peas?

I love black eye peas, but I also treasure children and old folks.

What did this guy say about black eye peas?

9. here

Missouri State Rep. Brian Seitz, after defending calling coronavirus the "China virus" and slamming Critical Race Theory, says, "For the record, I love dumplings, I love black-eyed peas and I love cornbread."

11. I would bet money.

That he never eats those things, except maybe for new year.

Eating southern food doesn’t make you a racist, but claiming you love to eat them, sounds like you’re trying to prove you’re not racist.

Missouri Republicans are dumb.

3. Republicans are nothing but murderers and haters.

The more working class/poor people they kill, the more money in the Social Security fund for the rich to steal.

4. And they have no shame . . .

Saw a group of GQPs on tv blaming President Biden for COVID and my family looked at each other and rolled our eyes.

GQP are anti vaxxers, anti maskers, anti social distancing, etc.

5. I'd edit that line "Only God can determine life or death." to "Only God and the QOP

can determine life or death." That's the truth and one of the markers of Fascism.

6. The Kill Grandma bills. We Dems have to get better at painting these Repugs for what they are.

Freedom is a great thing until people end up dead from too much of it in the wrong place.

7. Missouri legislature...

Attacking children and elders.

Forever punching down. I am hanging my head in shame, that these people do this in my state. Their mommas should slap them.

10. This is such government over-reach, I don't get it. How do they do this.

Their brains have got to be wired weirdly and differently or they would explode trying to reconcile what they say and do. I know it's possible to keep different things compartmentalized but what they are saying and doing these days is far beyond that.
