Harrisburg PA , Pennsylvania breaks ranks with other Northeast states, the Pennsylvania state Senate has passed a bill to reopen businesses in the commonwealth that adhere to social distancing guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The bill passed the Senate with a 29-21 vote after it was debated for more than two hours during a very contentious day in Harrisburg. It would essentially reopen businesses across the commonwealth.  While some feel its too early and the Governor Tom Wolf  announced Wednesday evening that he plans to veto the bill, “If we don’t do this right, the economy is going to be in even worse shape than it is now.”

  5. Nothing done to just “hope” that their cult king gets reelected

  6. It’s very sad to see how many folks have lost their jobs during this pandemic. It’s horrible so see how many people have suffered and died. I personally have lost people in my circle of friends and family due to this new and unknown disease. However no matter what political beliefs we have, the idea that we will take money over lives is just inhumane. My spouses business was forced to close and yes it’s tough, but dead and sick people wont make good customers. Safety first. Perhaps God forbid if those fighting to prematurely open up the economy gets sick or worse, maybe then they will have a change of heart. There is only one right thing to do. All lives matter.

  7. We all need to wait patiently and put it in Gods hands! He will work it out!

  8. First of all we have lost too many precious lives already and if we open businesses back up we may just keep losing more. Lets put it in God’s hands and continue to pray and let him decide when it’s time to open up businesses again! AMEN

  9. Yes.
    Let’s close ALL businesses until we can eliminate ALL risk factors from EVERYTHING and prevent ALL Deaths.

    Safety first.
    The idea that we will take money over lives is just inhumane.
    There is only one right thing to do.

    If we can save JUST ONE LIFE it will all BE WORTH IT.

  10. What drives those people to reopen? More power to the governor for his plan to veto the bill. Can he, really? Hope so. Dumb stupid people.
