As January 2021 comes to an end, many businesses across the nation are still suffering due to shutdowns. Most of these businesses have the misfortune of being in areas controlled by members of the Democrat Party.
The passing of time and reopening of other communities seems to be setting in with many business owners, however. During a period when unemployment is at an all-time high and the new president seeks mass amnesty, some Americans have decided that they’ve had enough when it comes to the government shutting them down.
This explains why California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is currently facing a lawsuit from multiple wineries and restaurant owners, as reported by Breitbart News.
The Lawsuit Against the California Governor
Over 50 Bay Area restauranteurs suing Newsom argue that the California governor lacks the “rational basis” to continue keeping their establishments on lockdown. The lawsuit’s plaintiffs furthermore allege that Newsom’s shutdown breaches their constitutional rights as their businesses continue suffering losses.
The ban is senseless, “has no scientific basis, does nothing to protect public safety, and, in fact, likely undermines public health.” 2/2 https://t.co/XiwO4m0SRY

Earlier this week, the Wine Country Coalition for Safe Reopening also sued the Democrat governor of California. In this suit, the group argued that Newsom and the California Public Health Department haven’t presented scientific evidence that outdoor dining poses greater danger than indoor mall shopping or film work.
The Wine Country Coalition for Safe Reopening additionally alleges that California is breaking equal protection laws with its ongoing shutdown.
Getting the Economy Back to Normal
Democrat leaders across the spectrum have continuously shown a disregard for the need to restore America’s economy. Newsom is just the latest example and more of his state residents are deciding they’ve had enough.
Since being sworn into office, Joe Biden has taken heat for his own seemingly caliver attitude towards getting the economy back on track. In a slew of recently-signed executive orders, the 46th president has yet to prioritize an economic reopening.

As a matter of fact, Biden actually killed off thousands of jobs by ending the permit for Keystone XL pipeline. Union workers and manufacturers aren’t happy with the Biden administration on this; sadly, these workers are losing their jobs at a time when unemployment is already a pressing problem.
The 46th president has yet to put forth a plan for getting Americans back to work.
