President Biden Tells Governors ‘There’s No Federal Solution’ to COVID-19 Pandemic


President Biden held a phone conference with the nation’s governors Monday as COVID cases began to rise across the United States.

When speaking with Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, Biden said “there is no federal solution” to the ongoing pandemic.

“One word of concern or encouragement for your team is that as you look towards federal solutions that will help alleviate the challenge, make sure that we do not let federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions,” Hutchinson said. “The production of 500 million rapid tests that will be distributed by the federal government is great, but obviously that dries up the supply chain for the solutions that we might offer as governor.”

“There is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level,” Biden responded.

“This is not like March of 2020, the beginning of the pandemic. We’re prepared and we know what it takes to save lives, protect people and keep schools and businesses open,” Biden added. “My message to the governors is simple. If you need something, say something.”

    Basically “this isn’t my fault” Biden. Next they’ll say Trump created an ineffective vaccine to avoid blame.

    Well, well, well. Didn’t Trump leave it up to individual states with some general guideline advise? And didn’t biden end that when he got into office because he could solve the problem?
    Full circle it seems. Was Trump right once again?

    Ground control to Major Tom…Can someone translated Biden-ese for me? Is what he said not the opposite of everything he has done? Another World, Another Planet…
