Congressman Comer Reveals Who Biden Should Be Taking Pointers On How To Handle COVID
Rep. James Comer revealed on Tuesday that President Joe Biden, after having said there’s “no federal solution” to the COVID-19 pandemic, should start taking pointers on how to handle the situation from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“Joe Biden should have a New Year’s resolution, and that’s to try to change everything he’s done with respect to COVID to make it more look more like what Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis have done,” the Kentucky Republican went on to say during an interview on Newsmax’s “John Bachman Now.”
That response, Comer said, would include giving his current chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the boot.
“He should try to get someone in there to work with his administration to have a consistent message moving forward, and the message should be that the states should have their own unique plan,” said the congressman. “The federal government will assist the state but we have to learn to live with this. We cannot continue to have forced shutdowns.”
Meanwhile, there are still vaccine standards for federal workers and the military, as well as the pending order for private businesses, but Biden should drop those and let the responsibility fall on the states and municipalities, said Comer.
“Without a doubt, that’s contributing to the labor shortage in America,” Comer said during the interview. “Our phones ring off the hook at my congressional office from angry Kentuckians and confused Kentuckians, and confused employers about what to do.”
He then added, “They have a large percentage of their workforce who refuse to be vaccinated, and that’s their constitutional right. And they don’t know what to do, and we tell them that we feel like the court will prevail. But this is creating more uncertainty for our employers, and it’s not doing anything to help get Americans on the same page with respect to vaccinations.”
Comer also Tuesday discussed the unemployment reports being released by the government, calling the dropping numbers in question because a record number of people remain outside the workforce, even if they’re not drawing unemployment payments.
“People are frustrated, leaving the workforce because of unnecessarily burdensome regulations like vaccine mandates,” Comer remarked. “We also have just situations where the government has incentivized people not to work by extending unemployment. This needs to stop, and the way the government measures unemployment is obsolete. It doesn’t take into account the people that have been disenfranchised and aren’t looking for work anymore.”
Comer said he’s been critical of the unemployment program for some time.
“Not only have we been paying out fraudulent claims for unemployment, but we’ve got people that are making more money drawing unemployment than working, and that’s very frustrating to the American taxpayers and very frustrating to the employers in America,” said the Kentucky Republican.
Comer is right on the money. If Biden really wants to know how to handle the COVID pandemic correctly, look at the example set by DeSantis and how well Florida has been doing during all of the madness that has overtaken the rest of the country.
And definitely give Fauci, the mad scientist, the boot. This man is sick, twisted, and infatuated with himself. He’s not the kind of person we need to provide advice and direction concerning this illness.
