The U.S. will soon begin to run out of money to bolster COVID-19 testing supplies and to guarantee that uninsured Americans keep getting free treatment for the virus unless Congress swiftly approves more funding, the White House warned. (snip) “This is an urgent request and this is what is at stake in our fight against COVID,” press secretary Jen Psaki said on Friday.

It’s always terribly urgent that we give them more money to blow on graft and kickbacks, isn’t it? They haven’t figured out that no one believes a thing they say, have they?

We must have more nasal swabs out there that implant micro spikes of dangerous chemicals right next to your brain. For scientific purposes of course. You know, to keep people feeling safe and protected from dying. Trust the government to give you eternal life by just rolling up your sleeves and getting jabbed and boosted 3-4 times a year. Regular testing masking up hand sanitizing and social distancing is the key to real obedience and surrender of your free will.

Guess now that Zuckbucks have been deemed bribing officials they need to find other sources of "walking around money". Was just at a large conference, with thousands of people. Almost no one was wearing a mask, except the few seconds to enter the building, but it was quickly removed by most. Lots of hand shaking and hugging, as it had been a few years since the conference had been held in-person. Yet, the two items of swag seen most often were masks and hand sanitizers at sponsor booths when it seemed like a good idea when they had to order them months ago. I would say the health crisis is gone, but the democrats don't want to lose the new-found authority they were able to wield.

If you're COVID-19 deputy coordinator Natalie Quillian, your agency will always need more money because that's the source of your personal power and keeps the money flowing into your pockets. This is why USA is doomed; our massive fedgov will keep spending money until we're all broke and the dollar is worthless. FTA: “From the COVID side, the bank account is empty,” said COVID-19 deputy coordinator Natalie Quillian. “We’re in conversations with lawmakers about how to secure the funding, but it’s urgently needed.” Some of the consequences could be felt later this month.

Back in January, when Biden had his sign up for the free at home COVID test kits, both my spouse and I signed up through the website. Biden said everyone who signed up would have the test kits mailed out to them in eleven days. Up to today neither my spouse or I have received any home test kits by mail. Apparently those test kits were part of a billion dollar government contract that Biden handed to Chinese companies. Before Congress passes out anymore COVID money, they should follow the money on the past Government contracts.

President Biden’s announcement that the United States will ban imports of Russian oil caused the price of crude to surge on Tuesday morning. However, the pain that Americans are set to feel at the gas pump could eventually be offset if Congress were to pass Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, a new study finds. An analysis released Tuesday by the nonpartisan think tank Energy Innovation finds that the climate change provisions of Biden’s now-defunct proposal, such as tax credits for buying new electric vehicles, would have reduced U.S. oil consumption by 2025 by half of the roughly 200,000 barrels of crude oil from Russia

U.S. Navy officials have said a warship can’t be deployed because its commander has refused the COVID-19 vaccine. The service said an East Coast guided-missile destroyer is “out of commission” after a Florida federal judge ruled that the Navy and Marine Corps cannot remove its officer for being unvaccinated against COVID-19. The warship now remains docked in Norfolk, Virginia. It comes after U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday, a George H. W. Bush nominee, ruled on Feb. 2 to bar Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and all other military officials from taking punitive action against the unnamed Navy officer, who sought religious exemptions to the military’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
