Coronavirus and the entire pandemic made Americans go crazy.
Since the very beginning, Florida and Texas rejected everything linked to the pandemic and received the bastion of freedom label from the conservatives. Rod DeSantis and Greg Abbott implemented an executive order against mandates and urged the legislatures to enforce the bans.
Both states accepted federal funding to push the experimental vaccine to the population. Only one single state rejected the federal funding.

Gov. @ChrisSununu failed to garner a single supporting vote from the 4 Republicans who make up the state’s 5-member Executive Council in his bid for $27 million in funding to promote the #Vaccine against #COVID19 in #NewHampshire. https://t.co/X1P5GmcohS

Ask a COVID robot to explain New Hampshire:
– Government vaccine mandates banned
– Only state to reject federal COVID funding
– Bottom ~5 in COVID restrictions during 2020 (per Oxford)
– 10th most vaccinated
– 45th on death rate

More than a thousand people, primarily organized by @RebuildNH, have kept the pressure up on the government for months to make this happen.

AP covered this story:
New Hampshire’s Executive Council on Wednesday rejected $27 million in federal funds for vaccination outreach, thrilling outspoken activists who previously derailed a public meeting and delayed the vote. Nine were arrested Wednesday after audience members repeatedly interrupted the debate.
Among other things, the money would have allowed the state to hire a public health manager and a dozen workers to promote the COVID-19 vaccine and address public concerns about it.
Opponents argued the grant language would have required the state to comply with any “future directives” issued by the Biden administration regarding COVID-19, such as vaccine mandates. The same language has appeared in other grants accepted by the council, a five-member body that approves state contracts. And it does not in any way impede the state’s sovereignty, said both Attorney General John Formella and Republican Gov. Chris Sununu.
“I appreciate that you have concerns, but they’re based on fantasy,” Sununu told Councilor Joe Kenney.
“You reject these federal dollars, the federal government doesn’t put it in a savings account. … They’re going to send it to New York and California. The dollars are ours, for programs we already implemented,” said Sununu. “So to say no makes no logical sense whatsoever.”
All four of the Republican councilors voted against the grants, including David Wheeler, who urged Sununu to “stand up like the governor of Texas.” Although Sununu plans to join a lawsuit against President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates for private employers, he said he won’t be following the lead of Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott, who on Monday issued an executive order barring private companies or any other entity from requiring vaccines.
“You want the government to tell private businesses who to hire and fire?” Sununu said. “That is completely un-American.”
Gov. Sununu’s comments were very familiar to South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. But, Sununu doesn’t want the government to be involved in private businesses’ personal choices about hiring and firing.
He refuses to stand up to corporations that enforce Biden’s tyrannical mandate.
Without supporting citizens from employer C-19 vaccine mandates, the Executive Council rejects the federal contract.
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) dueled with his fellow Republicans on Wednesday, accusing them of “communism” as they turned down his demand to approve $27 million in federal funding related to Covid-19.
The raucous debate took place at a meeting of the state Executive Council, which holds the power to veto contracts sought by the governor valued at more than $10,000. Sununu was seeking to approve two federal contracts worth $27 million in funding related to Covid-19. The money would have been used for tasks including vaccine outreach and data entry for the state’s immunization system.
Republicans expressed reservations about signing off on the contracts, citing President Joe Biden’s mandate requiring businesses to force their employees to be vaccinated. They asked Sununu to issue a counter-mandate, but Sununu refused.
Sununu’s statement is ludicrous. The C-19 vaccines are medical tyranny’s tool. Rejecting this funding to promote them is the opposite of communism.
