texas along with 500,000 Dead Americans Exposes the Rot of gop Ideology


Recommended Posts

What is clear, however, is that the past year has exposed the rot of GOP ideology that led to such excess death and despair. 

Yet, as tempting as it might be for some to attribute those failures to Trump's unique combination of laziness and malice towards the public, the situation in Texas is a cold reminder of how well his failures fit with the larger GOP approach to policy. The state is in shambles, laid flat because the power and water systems — poorly managed due to the Republican mania for low regulation — were no match for the kinds of extreme winter storm events that climate change is making more common. Texas's situation illustrates how Trump's approach to the pandemic is just one aspect of the Republican approach to everything, which is to say, to neglect government duties in favor of pandering to wealthy interests and to deflect and deny when the consequences inevitably occur.

"And Biden was in office last year at this time how many deaths do you think we'd have?"

 

 

 

a small Fraction of how many Died under your POS

 

the Obama/Biden Global Pandemic Team would have been FULLY FUNDED and employed to intercept the Virus...America would have been ready

What would Biden had done different[sic] to save lives?

 

The Cuomo Plan?

I refuse to get into yet another in a long line of repetitive conversations with you.  You have previously asked me that question and I have previously answered it.

After grappling with the 2014 Ebola epidemic, Obama in 2016 established a Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense at the NSC. A directorate has its own staff, and it is headed by someone who generally reports to the national security adviser.

 
 

The structure survived during the early part of Trump’s presidency, when the office was headed by Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer. But, after John Bolton became Trump’s third national security adviser, he decided the organizational chart was a mess and led to too many conflicts. He also thought the staff was too large, having swollen to 430 people, including staffers in the pipeline.

Bolton fired Tom Bossert, the homeland security adviser, realigning the post to report directly to him. He eliminated a number of deputy national security advisers so there was just one. And he folded the global health directorate into a new one that focused on counterproliferation and biodefense.
