Pandemic stress, the filibuster, Utah’s economy and more

Both Sides of the Aisle – Natalie Gochnour is joined on The Right by Sen. Dan McCay, R-Riverton, and on The Left by Shireen Ghorbani, former Salt Lake County Council member. They discuss President Biden’s falling approval ratings, the continued stress of the pandemic, the Salt Lake County mask mandate vote, Gov. Cox’s ban on a statewide mandate and the upcoming legislative session. They also discussed the Senate filibuster and passing voter protection bills, Utah’s economy, the rate of inflation, the finalists to host the 2024 Republican National Convention and thoughts on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

    PLEASE ask Dan McCay if he really believes that masks do nothing to prevent the spread of COVID! And while you are asking, does he believe the 2020 election was stolen ??? Got to say I still must listen. Your demeanor is astounding.

      I don’t think I have heard Dan say anything about masks not being effective, but he has talked about the effectiveness and considerations of mandates, which is a much different question. If I heard wrong, feel free to reply with the timestamp, but I think you might have misheard or misconstrued what was said.
