“Congress hasn’t provided enough money to keep purchasing these monoclonal bo- — antibodies. We’ve had to cancel planned orders and cut the supply we’re sending to the states. Without more funding, we’ll start to run out of them by the end of May — the end of May. We’ve also had to scale back our plan to purchase more preventive therapies for Americans who are immunocompromised — critical tools to protect the most vulnerable among us. Without more funding, we risk running out of the supply by this fall.” (link)


Three minutes later, the WH says this...

“President Biden informed President Zelenskyy that the United States intends to provide the Ukrainian government with $500 million in direct budgetary aid” (link)



And people wonder why the Biden administration's approval numbers are in the toilet.

Are you you implying Biden should excercise emergency powers and take money from the Pentagon, earmarked by Congress as laid out in the constitution, and use it to purchase COVID stuff?

What happened to Biden's promise that if we elected him he would shut down the virus? A year later and more have died under his watch than Trumps to which he also said that if as many had died that did that a president should step down.

Progressives have fallen ill with a case of selective amnesia when it comes to their messiah who delivered them from Trump.

Now he is doing what progressives do. He is demanding we throw money at his manufactured crisis. Nevermind that he has already proved that he is void of any solutions that work.

Biden will need to make some tough choices on how to spend the money he has the best way he can. The same way families are having to do more with less combating inflation

:ROFLMAO:

The OP is citing the White House.

But yeah, in a rare moment here, I have to agree with you - anything from this source is definitely "suspect." At least these days.

Are you suggesting he take money allocated for Ukraine and use it for something else?

I suggest he and Congress get their priorities in order. What is more important? What's happening in another country? Or, what's happening here?

Too many ****ing morons won't wear a mask, get their shots, or take basic, common sense precautions.

Wonder how many people realize that Congress controls the purse strings.

Well call your congresscritter and tell him/her. Congress controls the purse, not the president.

Not getting into that pointless argument. Biden made a promise and has failed to live up to it. He has not shut down the virus not has he resigned as he suggested his predecessor should have done. He is a liar and a hypocrite begging for money in the hopes that he can use it obfuscate those things.

Well, at least that would be legal.

What he is doing with the border wall money might not be legal.

Reading this article, I have questions it seems oddly vague on.

What is "border wall money"? Is this money that is specifically earmarked for the "border wall" or is it part of a larger bill that could include “environmental restoration” and “community consultation”?

Did something illegal occur?

Also on a side note.

Perhaps I missed it but I don't know who wrote the article. It seems like an opinion piece but it does not clarify. The link in the article takes me to an obviously right wing site but no other info is available.

Do you know who wrote this article?

That IS the whole argument.

If you cannot see that I can't help you.

Most likely no one can.
It's not much of an argument. You mean to say that Biden's secret planned that he concocted in his basement was to convince everyone to wear masks and take a vaccine that he discredited from the start and did not even believe wouldn't be ready for years? That was Biden's master plan lol

It's what happened. What did you think? That he had a magic wand that would just make the pandemic go away? BIden's plan was to get folks vaccinated and taking common sense precautions. The fact that a certain percentage of the population is either too stupid or too brainwashed (or possibly both) to accomplish that isn't anything he did.

Which video?

There are two articles. One says Biden is sending 500 million to Ukraine, all part of the money approved by Congress.

The money for COVID stuff has not been approved by Congress.

What did you want Biden to do again?
