The White House has ramped up their fear-mongering rhetoric surrounding COVID-19 as the Democrats push for another major taxpayer spending bill to combat the virus.
The Biden administration is claiming that without billions more in taxpayer dollars, 100 million cases of COVID-19 will hit America in the fall and winter.
CNN reported that the “Biden administration is issuing a new warning that the US could potentially see 100 million Covid-19 infections this fall and winter, as officials publicly stress the need for more funding from Congress to prepare the nation.”
“The White House is sharing these estimates as officials renew their push to get Congress to approve additional funding to combat the virus and as the nation approaches a coronavirus death toll of 1 million,” CNN’s Kaitlan Collins admitted. “Officials have said the White House will commemorate the moment when the US surpasses 1 million deaths from Covid-19.”
According to the Daily Mail, Biden is looking for Congress to approve a package north of $22.5 billion, “to allow the federal government to continue to purchase tests, therapeutics and continue other virus surveillance and prevention measures into the future.”
The push to renew COVID fear comes as Democrats decided to remove COVID funding from their new multibillion dollar package to support the war in Ukraine in an effort to speed up the package’s approval.
“We cannot afford delay in this vital war effort. Hence, I am prepared to accept that these two measures move separately, so that the Ukrainian aid bill can get to my desk right away,” President Joe Biden said.
The Hill pointed out that disagreements between the GOP and Democratic officials regarding the U.S. southern border and public health measures has also caused delays in securing support for the federal funding.
“Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and a group of Republicans had previously struck a deal for $10 billion in coronavirus assistance,” The Hill noted. “But Republicans want to add language into the coronavirus bill that would prevent the administration from lifting Title 42, a Trump-era pandemic public health policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants at the border and blocks them from seeking asylum.”
Biden has been in office for more than a year and previously promised to destroy the virus – a promise which not surprisingly, he has failed to deliver on and is now somehow trying to use COVID as a rallying cry to drum up support ahead of midterms.
Donald Trump Jr. pointed out that that the Democrat’s latest message ahead of the 2022 midterms seems to argue, “be afraid, only the extreme competence of Joe Biden can save you!!!”
