This boggles the mind. With sky high COVID infections and deaths rising back to 1000/day, this: In talks w Senate GOP over the weekend, “administration officials instead pushed to zero out the funding for testing and for the nation’s top health agencies”…
More details in this @washingtonpost story. “Several Senate Republicans including @SenBillCassidy (R-La.) are exploring pushing a testing and tracing provision in the next stimulus package but are expected to meet resistance from the White House.”…
In addition to zeroing out $25B for testing and tracing, “The administration is also seeking to zero out $10 billion in new funding for the CDC in the upcoming bill.”
