Statement from Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford on Governor Charlie Baker's Failing Pandemic Response and Delays in Unemployment Benefits

 Statement from Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford on Governor Charlie Baker's Failing Pandemic Response and Delays in Unemployment Benefits


"What exactly are Charlie Baker and Karyn Polito doing? The failures of the Baker-Polito Administration are growing in number and severity every day. The level of ineptitude and indifference being displayed by Baker and Polito as they continue to totally bungle the vaccine rollout is putting people's lives at risk. Now we're learning more about yet another area where their technical incompetence is having profound impacts: delivering unemployment benefits to people struggling to get by. Under Baker's watch, people are having to wait weeks or even months to receive unemployment benefits that they are eligible for. Baker's blunders have real consequences. People are going hungry, they are falling behind on rent, they go another day without the vaccine, but Charlie Baker and Karyn Polito seem to spend their time making excuses rather than solving the problems they helped create."
