Progressive policies of Democrats cities that do not make sense, instead worsening its economy
The development of bipartisan in the USA roots in the issue of Big and Small government. Democrats want a “big government” that provides for most of the citizens’ needs and regulates more policies than needed. However, many of its overarching policies do not make sense.
WORST PROGRESSIVE LAWS OF DEMOCRAT STATES.
Extended employee benefits, instead of pushing people to work
In 2021, unemployment benefits were extended by Democrat leaders, even months after the economy recovered. Republicans were against it, but Democrats insisted that unemployed people continue to receive money.
In turn, it discouraged millions of people benefiting from it from working, among other reasons, such as the fear of exposure and the chain supply problem.
Worse, the money “printed” for the stimulus packages was losing its value. In 2022, inflation was the highest in 40 years.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS.
Policies on supply chain restrictions worsening inflation
In 2022, Republicans blame inflation on pandemic restrictions, enforced mainly by Democrats. For example, more workers refuse to report to work because of mandatory vaccinations.
The lack of people working in the chain command resulted in a massive supply-chain problem. As a result of restrictions by Democrat leaders, commodities prices go up.
In contrast, Republican states like Florida alleged they could help solve the supply chain problems. It appears to show that too much control and restrictions affect the economy. Democrats are scrambling to direct action and deflect blame. [Axios]
Vaccine policy of Democrat city New York

In New York, basketball player Kyrie Irving was ineligible to play with the Brooklyn Nets team because he refused to comply with the vaccine mandate. The city policy requires players and employees to be vaccinated.
In 2022, he sat maskless inside the Barclays Center to watch Duke play Virginia Tech in the ACC Tournament. He even hugged a player who was OK with New York’s state policy for as long as he is not officially in the game. It makes zero sense.
With the city becoming a dangerous place—living in New York City may not be worth it, especially for Asians.

L.A. Prosecutors advised giving softer sentences to illegals
