A prominent billboard in Times Square was displayed Thursday morning asking President Joe Biden to end the federal mask mandate.
“Hey Joe! Even your home state is ditching the mask requirements. Isn’t it time you do the same?!” the billboard reads. “Blue States, including Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware, are ditching mask mandates because the American people are tired of them.”
Delaware is dropping its indoor mask mandate on Wednesday and school mask mandates in March, as a handful of blue states are reversing course on two years of strict mask requirements.
Oregon, New Jersey, and Connecticut made announcements Monday about dropping their school mask mandates, and Virginia Democrats changed their stance on mask requirements Tuesday.
“The American people are hungering to go back to normal. And yet, Biden is holding out, keeping all the federal mask mandates,” JCN president Alfredo Ortiz said in a press release.
“The sooner we can get back to normal, the sooner our economy can begin recovering from Biden’s low growth and stagflation. We’re calling out Biden publicly in the heart of Times Square,” Ortiz said. “This isn’t a conservative issue or a liberal issue, it’s a common-sense issue – but one that’s key for our recovery.”
