'We have gone backwards': Covid confusion snarls Biden White House
A half dozen former health policy makers, including members of Biden’s transition team, said the Biden administration needs an urgent strategy reset.
WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is urging schools to stay open, but there’s a widespread Covid testing shortage.
He calls it the “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” but that’s only confused 'boosted' Americans home sick with the Omicron variant.
And the administration hasn’t changed its guidance to urge high-filtration masks, despite calls from the medical community.
Recent isolation guidance has only added to the uncertainty.
The White House’s stay-the-course strategy on Covid is increasingly colliding with the realities of a roaring pandemic that is forcing schools and businesses to close.
A half dozen former health policy makers, including some members of Biden’s transition team, told NBC News the Biden administration needs an urgent reset on its Covid strategy, or the White House could rapidly lose credibility with the public.
“Biden was elected president, in large part, based on a message of ‘I’m competent, I’m capable, I will tell you the truth and I will get a handle on Covid in a way my predecessor could not and refused to do,’ and that continues to be the number-one issue for most people,” said Kathleen Sebelius, who served as Health and Human Services secretary in the Obama administration.
He calls it the “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” but that’s only confused boosted Americans home sick with the omicron variant.

I heard from Jimmy Dore vid that a judge is demanding FDA to release all of Pfizer vax Data within 8 months not 97 years is this true?
While citing a quote from JFK. That was brilliant.
To me it was red flags when FDA decided to hide the vaccine for 97 years? just what are they trying to hide? if the data is nothing serious bad?

Thing is that a lot of the COVID emergency funding was for extra ICU beds, and despite those billions, we now have less beds than we had going in!
If you put the government in charge of the desert, there would soon be a shortage of sand.

Guess this is why he knew it'd be a dark winter afterall. He knew he didn't have the mental capacity to really help and thus he made a gaffe telling us the truth..
But on a serious note, this is what happens when you push a singular method to fix a multi faceted problem. A vaccine that doesn't do what was promised and then that promise changes every week was never going to be the solution. Lots of us crazies saw that early on. That was before the conspiracy ideas were really settling in as well. I just can't wait for the progressives and the inevitable "how did we not see this coming" articles in regards to the vaccines being truly mostly ineffective.
Let the clown show continue. I'm prepared for the worst but always hoping for the best. I'm sure many here are in the same or a similar situation as I am. Or I hope so at least.

I expected at least an intelligent and semi-informed opinion from a Supreme Court justice.
Maybe from the next batch.

Joe Biden promised the American people that if we elected him President, he'd utilize 100% of his talents,
100 percent misguided effect multiplied by zero talent equals let’s go Brandon.
Who said political science makes no sense?

Actually it was that kind of talk that started us down this path to begin with.
"We have X many beds, and if COVID puts Y many in the hospital needing Y many beds ... that's Z many more than our X many beds, so you see, we have to shut down. Just shut down for two weeks to flatten the curve so we don't get Y many needing Y many beds ..."
