    President Biden agreed with several Republican governors on Monday that there is no definitive COVID-19 response, Fox News reported.

    The comments come as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have attempted to enact sweeping federal orders to mitigate the pandemic, including employer vaccine mandates.

    The OSHA rule, which mandated private businesses with more than 100 employees to require vaccination or weekly testing, will be heard by the Supreme Court soon, per Fox.

    During a Monday meeting, Gov. Asa Hutchinson, R-Ark., chair of the National Governors Association, advocated Biden to consider federalism in his administration's COVID-19 mitigation policy.

    "One word of concern or encouragement for your team is that as you look towards federal solutions that will help alleviate the challenge, make sure that we do not let federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions," Hutchinson said….



    …Biden quickly responded that "there is no federal solution" to COVID-19.

    "This gets solved at the state level," he added…

    Biden stupidly blamed Trump for China virus deaths. Now more have died while he’s been President than before he was. Trump provided hospital ships and field hospitals and staffing for them. He provided respirators, masks, and PPE’s replenishing supplies Obama drained during a prior pandemic. Trump got us therapeutics and vaccines. Biden has done nothing but command and blame and refused the prior administrations offer to help with vaccine hesitancy. Biden said he had a plan. Now we know he never did. All he and democrats did was scaremonger over the disease and scapegoat the Trump response while showing the world that he never had a clue.

    As a teacher you know if a student has a bad source you’re supposed to take points off their paper for citing a bad source right?

    and yeah I was right. It was taken out of context. The president isn’t pawning the problem off on states. The president is saying “you want help with the pandemic, you need to do something about it and then we’ll help”. No more De Santis thinking he can ban mask mandates.

    Really? Since virtually everything here and in the rest of the article at the link is a direct quote of what Biden or a Governor said, explain what is not truly quoted and then reply to the literal content of what he said instead of blindly attacking the source..

    Context for why he was saying it. Was he really saying the states are on their own now? No. He explicitly says the feds will help state governments. So there has to be something more to it than that.

    The plan he never implemented? Is he just now getting around to it, because of all the pushback?

    He never had a plan.

    It doesn’t bother them in the least. Covid was a tool that both China and the democrats/Brandon used to get rid of a very successful president who was getting in their way

    When does he plan on implementing his plan? He's had 11 months, what's he waiting for?

    You mean like the part where I’m quoting the OP? “There is no federal response and it’s the states job”. If you want to split hairs, go ahead. A



    You mean like those massive spending bills republicans and conservatives were decrying as whatever? Or the fact that we now have at home tests distributed? Or the fact that we have lots of Covid measures in place since delta?

    From the Salon link:


    There is no federal solution," Biden said. "This gets solved at a state level."

    While acknowledging the limits of the federal response, Biden said his administration would support state efforts.


    So, does this mean state’s can stop listening to Dr. Fauci?

    biden's plan, was for more testing?

    But, he promised he was going to get rid of Covid, not just provide more tests.
