Democrats Block Scalise Amendment to Administer 200 Million COVID Vaccines in 100 Days

steve scaliseHouse Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) offered an amendment to the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s portion of the FY21 budget reconciliation bill that would give the Biden Administration the necessary resources to develop a new plan to administer 200 million vaccines in 100 days. Whip Scalise released the following statement after Committee Democrats voted against his amendment:

“It’s a shame that House Democrats refuse to work with us in a bipartisan way to safely re-open schools, get people back to work, re-open our economy, and expand the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines. The Biden Administration inherited contracts for 300 million doses of vaccines for two approved vaccines and two in the final stage of clinical trials. Thanks to the groundwork laid by President Trump’s plan, Operation Warp Speed, the United States is already administering over 1.4 million vaccines a day. We are on track to deliver well over 100 million doses in 100 days, showing that President Biden’s plan is simply a continuation of President Trump’s plan. 


“House Republicans stand ready to work with President Biden to develop a new plan to administer 200 million vaccines in 100 days. Unfortunately, Democrats voted against my amendment that would provide the Administration the tools they need to increase the number of Americans vaccinated for COVID-19.”

During his opening remarks, Whip Scalise criticized Democrats’ hyper-partisan approach for additional COVID-19 relief and emphasized the importance of working together to help struggling workers, families, and small businesses by re-opening our economies, schools, and expanding vaccine distribution. Click here to view his opening remarks.

Just as in the past, you can count on China-Joe to do the exact Wrong Thing on every issue. His administration will destroy everything that they touch, all in the name of “Progress”. And they are targeting You & I for a sick political revenge.

IT’S NOT A VACCINE, AND IT’S NOT WISE TO TAKE SOMETHING THAT’S NOT BEEN TESTED ON RATS OR GUINEA PIGS, PRIOR TO INJECTING PEOPLE WITH THIS EXPERIMENTAL WAY OF CHANGING THE HUMAN CELL. MANY DOCTORS (1,000’S) AND SCIENTIST, AND MEDICAL PEOPLE WORLDWIDE ADVISE PEOPLE NOT TO RUSH TO TAKE THIS. PROFESSOR DOLORES CAHILL, JUDY MARKOVITS, DR. ANDREW KAUFMAN, DR. RUSSELL BLAYLOCK, MANY OTHER’S. IT OFFERS ZERO IMMUNITY, CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HARM AND HAS CAUSES MANY SERIOUS REACTIONS, EVEN LEADING TO DEATH. THERE ARE MANY SAFE AND LOW COST TREATMENTS HCQ & ZINC, IVERMECTIN, Z PACK, STEROIDS, SEE DR. V. ZELENKO, DR. GEORGE FAREED, DR. DAVID BROWNSTEIN, DR J. MERCOLA, MANY THINGS TO STRENGTHEN AND SUPPORT IMMUNE SYSTEM TO AVOID SERIOUS ISSUES.

This was also something that was to be expected. The Democrats want to leverage the Covid-19 crisis for as long as possible. “Never let a good crisis got to waste” is more than just a saying. It is what they live by.

Anything that would accelerate a return to normal for the entire country is going to impeded by the Democrat party. The Democrats, if they have their way, would like to keep the country in a permanent Covid impaired state for years to come. It helps to facilitate so many of their arbitrary and draconian policies of governance. When they can’t milk the Covid crisis anymore, they will simply create another crisis to justify “emergency measures”. It’s what authoritarians of all types do.

They’ve already come up with another covid (corona-virus) that is more deadly, to keep the fear, mask, loss of freedoms, controls, forced injections of experimental, God only knows what it will do to your bodies, if not kill you, or make you wish to be dead.
