There are troubling signs beneath the surface for how the coronavirus pandemic will reshape American life.
There could be bad news on the way for conservatives.
And Rush Limbaugh revealed a ticking time bomb that could destroy the Republican Party.
One of the features from American life that figures to outlast the coronavirus is the idea of working from home.
Businesses were urged to allow workers to telework wherever possible to limit in-person interactions that could spread the Chinese coronavirus.
On a recent broadcast of his radio show, Rush Limbaugh warned the blue state Governors maintaining endless lockdowns would lead to residents fleeing the state since they realize they don’t need to live in the same state where they work if work from home is now the norm.
“You know what’s happening right now in New York? Because of the stay-at-home order being extended and because of work from home, a bunch of people — this happening in San Francisco too. The tech companies. Google, Facebook, Twitter. They’ve all shut down their primary campuses in Silicon Valley, in places like Cupertino, some of the other cities. And people are working from home,” Limbaugh began.
“The same thing’s happening in New York. People that live in Connecticut who commute to Manhattan every day are realizing they don’t have to go back to Manhattan ever to do their jobs. And if you don’t have to go back to Manhattan, you don’t have to live in Connecticut, and you don’t have to pay massive Connecticut taxes. And you don’t have to share the tax burden with New York,” Limbaugh added.
Limbaugh warned that blue state workers fleeing places like New York and California would be bad news for red states as it could tip the electorate from one favorable to Republicans to a Democrat-leaning state.
“And then if you’re not going into Manhattan for your job, the company doesn’t need to be renting all that commercial real estate space. If these people are not careful, these governors, they’re gonna destroy the essence of what the blue states are. They’re going to destroy these urban areas where massive blocs of Democrat voters live — and this massive bloc of Democrat voters is gonna scram,” Limbaugh added.
There is evidence of this.
Data showed five percent of New York City’s population fled before the lockdown.
The number one destination was the red state of Florida.
