Border-surge spending is sapping money from COVID-19 fight, GOP investigators say:
The Biden administration’s move to siphon money away from health programs to finance housing for the record number of migrant juveniles is putting a dent in the effort against COVID-19, the top Republican investigator in the House charged Thursday.
Rep. James Comer, the ranking Republican on the House Oversight Committee, led a letter to Health and Human Services demanding to know just how much money has been moved around and suggesting the shift was done without full congressional approval.
The members of Congress are particularly interested in $589 million reprogrammed within the HHS budget.
“We are at a critical juncture in fighting the pandemic and it strains credibility that these huge transfers will have no impact on HHS mission critical functions or the administration’s efforts in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr. Comer and the committee’s other Republicans wrote to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. The Washington Times is first to report on the letter.
All told, the lawmakers said, HHS has diverted more than $2 billion to handle the surge of migrant children. When children show up at the border without parents, HHS is charged with housing them while it searches for sponsors to take them. --->READ MORE HERE
Leftists: Health Care Is A Human Right, Unless You’re Unvaccinated:
Threatening to deny health care to more than one-third of the adults in the country is just one more way the panic pornographers are trying to tyrannize you.
The same people who spent the last decade telling you health care is a human right now want to be able to deny it to you.
As if it wasn’t enough to hound people without the COVID-19 shot out of their jobs, schools, and even effectively whole cities, pundits and even some doctors are now floating the idea of denying medical care to people based on COVID-19 vaccination status.
“Is it time to put those who are endangering public health by refusing vaccines on notice that if they need care they will go to the end of the line, behind the patients who acted responsibly?” asks the Washington Post in a totally-not-loaded-at-all question.
While the Post article doesn’t endorse refusing treatment to the unvaccinated as punishment per se, it leaves the door wide open for denial of health care in certain instances. “Patients should expect to be told that being tested and wearing a mask are conditions of receiving care,” it notes. “For non-urgent care in which sufficient advance notice is given, requiring vaccination as a condition of continued service might also be defensible.” --->READ MORE HERE
