(RightWing.org) – During the 2020 general election, then-Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his running mate then-Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) offered promises that they could fix the problems ailing America due to COVID-19. He framed Donald Trump as too incompetent to handle the crisis. Yet, it appears that Trump wasn’t the problem. Based on the current results, incompetency is raining from the current administration, not the former.
Throughout last fall, the Democratic duo undermined science. Harris said she would be hesitant to take the vaccination while Trump was still in office. However, even before taking office, they both went straight to the front of the line and took the vaccinations they both subtly and overtly undermined.
Biden repeatedly accused the Trump administration of being a colossal failure in the handling of COVID-19. However, if that’s true, what about their own administration?
What Was Biden’s Plan for COVID-19?
Under the Trump administration, the policy allowed states to create COVID-19 plans to handle their unique situations instead of a one size fits all approach. It was an example of federalism and government restraint not often seen but only dreamed about by conservatives. Operation Warp Speed was a resounding success leading to inoculations that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
However, what was Biden’s plan? It appears he didn’t have one other than a national mandate that everyone should wear masks they were already wearing. Any semblance of a plan was already part of Trump’s plan that Biden hijacked as his own. The rest simply doesn’t exist.
Million Vaccinations Per Day
Once securely settled into the shelter of the White House, Biden said the goal of the new administration was to ensure 100 million shots would be achieved within the first 100 days of his presidency. It was dishonest and disingenuous.
During the week of Biden’s inauguration, the US was averaging 983,000 vaccinations a day. Biden set a benchmark that was already being met thanks to Trump. Once the public was onto the president’s ploy, he increased it to a new goal of 1.5 million vaccinations per day. That goal would be achievable right now if it weren’t for the bureaucratic red tape involved.
As of Thursday morning, February 18, Pfizer and Moderna shipped over 70 million vaccinations to the states. Yet, the states only put 52.8 million of them into people’s arms.
America can’t get back to work, and the economy can’t recover if schools don’t reopen. It’s a fact of life in the modern world. Aside from that, kids are hurting academically. Some haven’t stepped foot in a classroom in almost a year and are falling behind in math, science, reading and writing.
Biden appears to be politically calculated on the issue as he vacillates back and forth due to the teacher union support he received during the campaign. On one hand, he says schools should open, and on the other hand, he defers to the teacher unions.
To make matters worse, members of the administration aren’t on the same page. Press Secretary Jen Psaki said 51% of schools should open one day a week. Unfortunately for her, 64% of school districts were already doing some form of in-class instruction. Biden was forced to walk back her statement and say the goal is five days of in-class instruction, not one.
Biden Never Had a Plan
It’s blatantly obvious that Biden never had a plan. What little he had came from Trump, which he deceptively took as his own. During the campaign, America was warned that Biden often plagiarized and wasn’t a critical thinker. Looks like that hasn’t changed.
Once again, Democrats offered smoke-and-mirrors. There was no policy, just a lot of talk.
