Biden Lied About Why COVID Tests Are In Short Supply

I&I: When Joe Biden was running for president from the basement of his Delaware home, he issued what he described as a seven-point plan “to beat COVID-19.” More than a year later, Biden announced his latest plan, which basically repeats everything he promised he’d do when running for president.

The big news announced on Tuesday was that the administration would buy and distribute half a billion at-home tests to anyone who asks because, he said, testing is key to getting COVID under control.

But Biden promised the same thing last year. In fact, the very first item on his seven-point plan was to “fix Trump’s testing-and-tracing fiasco to ensure all Americans have access to regular, reliable, and free testing.”

Biden said he’d “double the number of drive-through testing sites … scale up our testing capacity by orders of magnitude … stand up a Pandemic Testing Board like Roosevelt’s War Production Board (to) produce and distribute tens of millions of tests.”

Yet the news today is filled with stories of people who can’t get tests.

At his press briefing Tuesday, a reporter asked Biden if the lack of sufficient tests was a failure. “No,” was Biden’s response. “COVID is spreading so rapidly. It just happened almost overnight.” He denied that it took too long to ramp up testing, saying that “the Omicron virus spread more rapidly than anybody thought … All of a sudden it was like everybody rushed to the counter.”

But as with so many things Biden says, that was a big, fat self-serving lie.

  1. OT: Philly’s liberal congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon’s car, purse and ID stolen during an armed carjacking. She complained that criminals are emboldened these days. Gee, congresswoman, have you ever taken a look in the mirror and ask yourself why crime is out of control, you moron?

  4. OMG I thought they were discontinuing the fake tests since they don’t work for a fake virus??

    In Africa, where this “omicron” was first detected, it has been dismissed as little more than sniffles. And here, by God, it is a full-blown massive killer for all time! The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

  5. This guy has no degree in medicine. This is a clear example of how no-nothings graduate into the Dem Party with no skills, education or love of Country…but massive BS and feigned anger, and an uncontrolled drive to steal other people hard-earned money, along with a False Constitutional power to control others.

    This false political prophet has been an unemployable menace to the Democrat Party since its inception.
