Remember during the pandemic when we occasionally wondered where the supplies that the federal and state government was supposed to have stockpiled for emergencies like this were, and it turned out Obama and Democrat governors had emptied them out?
Even lackluster RINOs like Schwarzenegger had responsibly built up stockpiles of supplies for an emergency that Democrats trashed.
Once this became an issue, the media rushed into action, spinning frantically and tossing out denials. Except that we’re now seeing the same process repeating itself in real time.
The Department of Health and Human Services has diverted more than $2 billion meant for other health initiatives toward covering the cost of caring for unaccompanied immigrant children (ed: illegal alien migrants of uncertain age), as the Biden administration grapples with a record influx of migrants on the southern border.
The redirected funds include $850 million that Congress originally allocated to rebuild the nation’s Strategic National Stockpile, the emergency medical reserve strained by the Covid-19 response. Another $850 million is being taken from a pot intended to help expand coronavirus testing, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.
Hey, we’re past the pandemic. Let’s start redirecting the stockpiles and supplies to fund illegal aliens instead.
And then next time this happens we can redirect more infected patients to nursing homes killing tens of thousands of seniors who are statistically more likely to vote Republican while promoting the illegal aliens who are more likely to vote Democrat.
But by then the media will ghost edit its old articles mentioning this and insist that it never happened.
But these transfers come as HHS has publicly sought to pump new funds into the Strategic National Stockpile and Covid-19 testing efforts by emphasizing the critical role that both play in the pandemic response and future preparedness efforts.
They don’t care about prepping for a pandemic. They do care about illegal aliens.
“The fight against Covid-19 is not yet over,” Becerra testified to a House panel on Wednesday in defense of a budget request that would allocate $905 million for the stockpile. “Even as HHS works to beat this pandemic, we are also preparing for the next public health crisis.”
This is politics as usual.
Clamor for money to fund something that people want and need, and then shift it over to your priorities like filling the country with illegal aliens.
Becerra later stressed the need to “make sure we’ve got the resources” to replenish the Strategic National Stockpile
It’s Becerra, by “national stockpile”, he meant the stockpile of illegal aliens that Democrats used to turn California blue and that they intend to use to take over Texas.
