Pelosi and Schumer Block Coronavirus Funds


There will be no help from your elected officials with a “D” behind their names, no matter how many Americans die or suffer. Losing a few thousand American lives is a small price to pay for getting Trump out of office in 2020!

---------- snip --------------

The Trump administration sent to Capitol Hill on Monday night its $2.5 billion supplemental budget request for additional money to fight the coronavirus, but House Democrats immediately labeled it as insufficient, indicating a battle ahead in Congress over the emergency aid.

The administration’s request would require enhanced authority to move around federal funds — a non-starter with Democrats, who are already livid over White House moves to reshuffle existing federal funds toward the border wall.

Did you catch that? Pelosi is still grinding her store-bought teeth over the president securing the border by moving money around. So, she will be punishing you by not allocating the funds needed to fight the coronavirus…not without long delays and public bickering.

Moving the funds around would make them available immediately, but that might actually help reduce the Coronavirus impact on our nation—and make the president look good. But you can’t have that in an election year!

Of course, what this hack site doesn't mention is that the Democrats say it is not enough and are introducing a bill, hopefully tomorrow, budgeting for more funds. Because, hey, what wingnut goober is going to click on their site if they aren't telling lies to get wingnuts into a tizzy?

Yet only $180 million was used for Ebola and they think over $2 billion isn’t enough? Lol

Ebola is less contagious and more containable.

If they were serious they would pass it, and if more was needed, just push another bill through then. Simply holding it up does nothing but delay what they are screaming is so serious it should have been done yesterday! Please. It is nothing more than faux outrage once again.

Correct. Do you know why? Of course you don't. You just didn't have anything else to say to protect dear leader.

If they were and are serious - they would ask for what they truly think is needed (and, it's not just the Dems).

Who knows? Maybe the Emperor is wrong.

Honey, there is a higher percentage of deaths world wide from the flu than this has at this point.

Do you understand why the difference? Of course you don't, my facebook rightwing meme-educated friend.

No, if it is that serious to them, they would pass it and then work to get more. $2 billion is an extraordinary amount to start.
False, and that is stupid. Don't worry, Trump gets to pull out his sharpie and apply his "methhead on a trampoline" signature to any law that passes. So rest easy.

However, it seems to be very contagious.

You must be some sort of wizard, or shaman
No.

Ebola kills it's victims quite quickly, it's spread through direct contact with bodily fluids. Not a very efficient virus. Have there been world wide ebola outbreaks?
Yes, I know. I was being facetious. Like, how CRAZY that you would know such things.. you must have divined them via tea leaves or a crystal ball

(or you actually read something)

Honey, facebook is yours, not mine. I read what the epidemiologists are saying, the WHO and the NIH. Maybe you should, too.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Why The World Cares More About The New Coronavirus Than The Flu
But even if the death rate for the new coronavirus turns out to be more on par with the flu, Althaus says there's another consideration: If officials could permanently eliminate the flu, they would. The trouble is that the flu is already too widespread. By contrast, this new coronavirus has only just started circulating in humans.


GOATS AND SODA
Wuhan Coronavirus 101: What We Do — And Don't — Know About A Newly Identified Disease

"We basically have the opportunity to prevent spread of a new respiratory disease in the first place," says Althaus.

Indeed, Althaus notes, nearly 20 years ago the world succeeded in eliminating another coronavirus — the one that caused severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS — which infected at least 8,000 people globally and killed hundreds.

That said, he notes an important difference. With SARS, says Althaus, "the majority of infected individuals [did] not transmit the infection at all." Instead the disease mostly spread through what's known as "super-spreader events": Rare cases of people who shed an unusual amount of the virus, for instance. Or particular hospitals that had terrible infection control — such that lots of health workers there got sick and then passed the disease on further.

"Just a small fraction of infected individuals can infect a lot of additional people — like 10, 20 or 30 people," says Althaus.

As scary as that sounds, this pattern of spread is actually easier to contain. With SARS, officials were able to put most of their energy into identifying the super-spreading sources.

"If you miss a few infected individuals it might not be that bad," says Althaus. Chances are they won't be a super-spreader and so, "they might not cause a new transmission chain anyway."

Unfortunately, modeling by Althaus and others suggests that the new coronavirus may be spreading at a much steadier rate — similar to the way the flu spreads.


GOATS AND SODA
MAP: Confirmed Cases Of Wuhan Coronavirus

"That means that we have to be very careful that we really find all individuals that are infected with this virus that travel to other countries," says Althaus.

U.S. officials have described the quarantine plan as a key element of that strategy. "The goal here is to slow the entry of this virus into the United States," said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking at a press conference Monday.

The hope is this will at least prevent the disease from taking root in the United States and becoming one more common disease.
