    President Biden Puts United States On Path To Global Covid Vaccine Leadership;
    Sharp Pivot From Trump Failure.

    • March 11, 2021 at 11:32 am

      President Biden: “If we have a surplus, we’re going to share it with the rest of the world.”
      “This is not something that can be stopped by a fence, no matter how high you build a fence or a wall. So we’re not going to be ultimately safe until the world is safe. So we’re going to start off making sure Americans are taken care of first, but then we’re then going to try to help the rest of the world.”

    ‘No longer being coded’:
    Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett says Rep. Grothman has a history of ‘very racist remarks’.

    “After Rep. Glenn Grothman made a comment suggesting that the Black Lives Matter movement was not interested in “the old fashioned family,” Delegate Stacey Plaskett says “If you just look up Glenn Grothman, he has a history of making remarks about ‘welfare mommas,’ just very racist remarks throughout his time.”

    Senate Leader Schumer.
    Speaks At Enrollment Ceremony For The American Rescue Plan:

    “…And we worked together – Democrats on the House side, Democrats on the on the Senate side,
    all together because we knew how important this was to America.
    So what do we say to America?
    We say to America: Help is on the way.
    Help is on the way.
    You will receive $1,400 checks by the end of March. Help is on the way.
    Vaccines will be available far more quickly to far more people in a shorter time. Help is on the way.
    Our schools will open safely and more quickly than we thought. Help is on the way.
    Half of America’s children who are in poverty will not be in poverty because of this bill. Help is on the way.
    We Democrats made promises, particularly we did in the Senate. We said if we won those two seats in Georgia, we would get things done. Mitch McConnell blocked bills four times in a row.
    And Mr. Ossoff and Mr. Warnock told the citizens of Georgia if they were elected, they would make sure that the actual promises made would be promises kept and they have been.
    So this is a wonderful day for America.
    This is one of the most consequential pieces of legislation we have passed in decades.
    And you know what we can show America? That we can get things done to make their lives better.
    And we will continue to do that through the rest of this session.
    Help is on the way.”

    President Biden’s speech on the anniversary of Coronavirus lockdowns – 3/11

    • March 12, 2021 at 2:51 pm

      President Biden yesterday:
      (excerpt)
      “We’ve been working with vaccine manufacturers, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson,
      to manufacture and purchase hundreds of millions doses of these three safe, effective vaccines. And now, at the direction and with the assistance of my administration, Johnson & Johnson is working together with a competitor, Merck, to speed up and increase the capacity to manufacture new Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is one shot. In fact, just yesterday I announced, and I met with the CEOs of both companies, I announced our plan to buy an additional 100 million doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccines. These two companies, competitors, have come together for the good of the nation, and they should be applauded for it. It’s truly a national effort, just like we saw during World War II.

      Now, because all the work we’ve done we’ll have enough vaccine supply for all adults in America
      by the end of May. That’s months ahead of schedule, and we’re mobilizing thousands of vaccinators to put the vaccine in one’s arm. Calling active duty military, FEMA, retired doctors and nurses, administrators, and in those to administer the shots. And we’ve been creating more places to get the shots. We’ve made it possible for you to get a vaccine at nearly any one of 10,000 pharmacies across the country, just like you get your flu shot. We’re also working with governors and mayors in red states and blue states to set up and support nearly 600 federally supported vaccination centers that administered hundreds of thousands of shots per day. You can drive up to a stadium or a large parking lot, get your shot, never leave your car and drive home in less than an hour.

      We’ve been sending vaccines to hundreds of community health centers all across America located in underserved areas. And we’ve been deploying and we will deploy more mobile vehicles and pop-up clinics to meet you where you live, so those who are least able to get the vaccine are able to get it. We continue to work on making at-home testing available, and we’ve been focused on serving people in the hardest hit communities of this pandemic: Black, Latino, Native American, and rural communities.

      So what does all this add up to? When I took office 50 days ago, only 8% of Americans, after months, only 8% of those over the age of 65 had gotten their first vaccination. Today, that number is 65%. just 14% of Americans over the age of 75 50 days ago had gotten their first shot. Today, that number is well over 70% with new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the CDC that came out on Monday, it means simply this: millions and millions of grandparents who went months without being able to hug their grandkids can now do so, and the more people are fully vaccinated, the CD will continue to provide additional guidance on what you can do in the workplace, places of worship, with your friends, as well as travel.

      When I came into office, you may recall I set a goal that many of you said was kind of way over the top.
      I said I intended to get a hundred million shots in people’s arms in my first a hundred days in office. Tonight, I can say, we’re not going to meet that goal, we’re going to beat that goal because we’re actually on track to reach this goal of a hundred million shots in arms on my 60th day in office.
      No other country in the world has done that this. None.

      I want to talk about the next steps for thinking about it. First, tonight, I’m announcing…direct all States, tribes, and territories to make all adults people 18 and over eligible to be vaccinated no later than May 1.”
