He even used up the stockpile and refused to replenish it. He actively tried to make America unprepared for an emergency.

What an anti-American fuckwit.

Obama administration repeatedly sought to cut PPE stockpile, but Biden team points to GOP-led 'budget squeeze'


In its fiscal 2011 budget, submitted in early 2010, the Obama administration explicitly sought a reduction in the SNS: "CDC requests $523,533,000 for the Strategic National Stockpile in FY 2011, a decrease of $72,216,000 below the FY 2010 Omnibus," the budget request reads.

The document went on to make clear that $68,515,000 would separately be transferred to the SNS from the fiscal 2009 appropriation for an H1N1-related fund, meaning that overall, the strategic stockpile would receive $592,048,000 -- a reduction of only a few million dollars from the previous year.

The Obama administration also sought a $47.572 million cut to the stockpile in fiscal 2013, a $38.190 million cut to the stockpile in fiscal 2014, and a smaller drop of at least several million dollars in fiscal 2015.

Indeed, the Obama administration's budget requests implicitly reference the Budget Control Act several times. The fiscal 2013 budget, for example, states that the "current fiscal climate necessitates scaling back" even though the SNS is a "key resource."

And, the fiscal 2015 budget states: "CDC has always sought to maximize the effectiveness of resources and investments, and is even more focused on doing so in the current fiscal environment."

Um, just because he was a shitty leader who couldn't get anything done EVEN WHEN his party had control of both Houses of Congress doesn't absolve him of what he tried to do.

You lose again, IQ7 :abgg2q.jpg:

Oh look at this...from the OP....got anything to say about this?

-- although some of the reductions were relatively small, and most came after Republicans implemented a new law to restrict federal discretionary spending,

hmmmm



Fiscal restraints imposed by Republicans in Congress in the early years of the Obama administration left the U.S. less prepared to respond to the coronavirus pandemic today.
Couldn't he have used some of the "shovel ready jobs" money?

With a coin you have a 50/50 chance of being right.

With the Kenyan.Klown, there was about a 3/97 chance of getting it right. That was one tedious, dumb motherfucker.

Republicans in Congress gave Obama even less than he wanted. Republicans refused to replenish the stockpile. If Trump had gotten his way, it would have suffered draconian cuts. These cuts were too much for even Republicans to stomach.

Youve got a mostly false rating from politifact.
