TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): How is it like drunk driving? How do unvaccinated people hurt anybody? Hey, Phil Murphy, got a second? We've got some time. Why don't you explain that to us.

Not because the science has changed -- the science is the same. It's because our leaders realized that they could leverage fear to crush their political opponents. And if that means fining people $700,000 for employing someone, throwing the weakest people in our society out on the street with no unemployment insurance, and no health insurance, they'll do it.
