So, the federal government has a contract to buy and distribute all of Regeneron’s dual monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID. Biden was beginning to look like a fool due to Ron DeSantis’ effective measures to make the treatment widely available, and now has curtailed shipments of Regeneron treatment to Florida and other red states, in effect, attempting to harm the citizens of those states by restricting access to effective treatment for COVID. Biden will ship the medicine to blue states that haven’t been using it aggressively and withhold it from red states that are using it. A supply of 70,000 doses requested by Florida was reduced to about 30,000 doses by Biden. Clearly an effective medication for treating (and preventing) COVID is being used politically by the President to harm his constituents in states that oppose him politically. Medical care is being made available (or unavailable) based on politics. Unity? Not.
And of course, Biden is trying to do exactly what Democrats always accuse Republicans of doing–killing Grandma. Particularly if she votes Republican. Apparently, this is what Biden meant when he said he was going to get those Republican governors out of the way of his policies. Either by damaging them so greatly politically for opposing his policies, or killing their constituents that voted against him. Democrats of course think that Americans are brain dead and don’t realize what’s going on, or they think the media will cover for them and bamboozle Americans on this issue as on all the others.
The Democrat canard that Republicans want to kill Grandma should be buried by this move by Biden, but, alas, the Democrats will always and forever continue with the same preposterous canard when it suits them, regardless of the hypocrisy, cant, lies, obfuscation, etc., etc.
Fortunately Ron DeSantis, playing Road Runner to Biden’s Wile. E. Coyote, found a way around Biden’s order within 24 hours by directly contracting with Glaxo Smith Kline to purchase what appears to be a superior dual monoclonal antibody treatment.
Don’t be surprised if the FDA soon asks for the withdrawal of the Glaxo-Smith Kline product. Or issues an advisory against its use in treating COVID. Or the federal government forces GSK to sell all of its product to the federal government for Biden to dispense according to his political calculations.Published in
