HASKELL, N.J. – Assemblyman Robert Auth joined Bill Spadea Monday on NJ’s talk radio station NJ101.5 to speak about how the response to the Covid-19 pandemic was justified, but needed to remain fluid instead of becoming more drastic.
“I’m advocating choice and public responsibility,” said Auth (R-Bergen). “Right now we are reliant on government to tell us what to do.”
Auth mentioned he has asthma and is taking the necessary precautions to stay safe. The underlying condition puts him at greater risk. The economy has entered into another depression as a result of prolonged shutdowns of business – ultimately harming more lives than have been saved according to initial models, which estimated 1.7 million deaths if nothing was done.
“Government officials seem to have this inability to admit when they are wrong,” said Auth. “They have already put their anchors in the ground and they’re not going to budge.”
