In these days, when Wisconsin is among the top states in the nation for COVID-19 infections and with hospitalizations and death rates steadily rising, I believe it is time to properly remember the men who got us into this position.

There are three Republican legislators who are primarily responsible for the state of COVID-19 in Wisconsin now, and I believe it is high time we give them the honor they are due.

It isn’t that they did nothing—though Wisconsin now is pretty powerless to do much of anything—but these men actively opposed any efforts to do anything.

I recommend that we appropriately honor Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, Rep. Robin Vos and Sen. Steve Nass by naming things after them. Specifically, I suggest the following: the Scott Fitzgerald Emergency COVID-19 Field Hospital, the Robin Vos Emergency Community COVID-19 Testing Sites, and the Steve Nass Temporary Morgue Trailer Trucks.

Without the efforts of these three men, we never would have needed these things.
