It should be evident to even the Trumpsters that what the Republicans want is for the elderly (who are on Social Security. Medicare or Disability ) and the working poor (who are on Medicaid) and people of color (who are dispropornately affeced) to die. How can I charge that?
Why is he holding back on testing?
Why else would he want he elderly to attend his pep-rallys?
Why would he want to curtail testing?
Why isn”t his administration seeing that there are adequate medical protections for our health care workers?
Why does FEMA send “junk” to the providers in nursing homes?
Why has he silenced the CDC?
WHY ARE THE REPUBLICANS SAYING OR DOING NOTHING?
The death of these non-one percenters are the only hope this president and his Senators have of gettng elected.
At the same time, their deaths would decrease payments for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid freeing up mney to dealwith the exploding debt they created with their first stimulus to the one percent.
NOW, that the President has declared a victory over Covid-19 and is dismantling the Covid-19 Task Force led by the Vice President, can the Senate led by Mitch Mconnel try him on his impeachable offences, find him guilty and remove him from office?
It would be too late for the 100s of thousands of our citizens who will have lost their lives because this President refused to recognize the danger and do his duty for his citizens. That would be for the citizens other than his friends, grifters and money makers.
This is on you Mitch and your Republican cronies have stood by and watched while Nero fiddled and Rome burnt. You, Mitch are the modern Nero.
Which would you choose? Which have the Republicans chosen? Which will the Democrats choose?
Osterholm, who has advised several presidents on pandemics during the past 2 decades, co-authored the nine-page report, titled “COVID-19: The CIDRAP Viewpoint,” with epidemiologists from the Harvard School of Public Health and formerly from the CDC.
The team used prediction models, historic pandemic data, and published reports about COVID-19 to forecast the next 2 years. Based on that, they said government officials should prepare for a long-term pandemic. They discussed three scenarios:
The first scenario could be that the first wave of COVID-19 this spring is followed by several smaller waves during the summer and the next 2 years, gradually decreasing throughout 2021. This could vary by geography and require periodic shelter-in-place recommendations.
The second scenario could be that the first wave is followed by a larger wave in the fall or winter, and then smaller waves in the 2021, which could require shelter-in-place measures again in the fall. This scenario mimics the 1918-1919 pandemic.
The third scenario could be a “slow burn” of transmission during the next 2 years, which may not require additional shelter-in-place orders but will continue to cause new cases and deaths.
IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE SO VOTE. VOTE EARLY. VOTE BY MAIL.
Fight those who want to limit the citizens who can vote.
So, the want we taxpayers to cover their losses and then they will also raise our premiums. THIS IS WHY WE NEED UNIVERSAL COVERAGE AND NOT FOR PROFIT MEDICAL COVERAGE. We’re paying on both ends may as well go Medicare for all. We’re footing the whole bill anyway.
