Republicans Hit Biden on Coronavirus
Jonathan Weisman 5 hrs ago

WASHINGTON — Over eight hours last Thursday night and into Friday morning, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California hit on many issues as he spoke on the House floor in an unsuccessful effort to thwart House passage of President Biden’s social safety net and climate change bill. But among his most audacious assertions was that Mr. Biden was to blame for the country’s failure to quell the pandemic.
© Pete Marovich for The New York Times Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the House Republican leader, has seen members of his party flout mask ordinances and block President Biden’s vaccine mandates.
Mr. McCarthy used this line of attack even as members of his own Republican Party have spent months flouting mask ordinances and blocking the president’s vaccine mandates, and the party’s base has undermined vaccination drives while rallying around those who refuse the vaccine. Intensive care units and morgues have been strained to capacity by the unvaccinated, a demographic dominated by those who voted last year for President Donald J. Trump.
© Ash Adams for The New York Times Republican lawmakers continue to try to block vaccine mandates at the local, state and federal level.
As of mid-September, 90 percent of adult Democrats had been vaccinated, compared with 58 percent of adult Republicans.


Yet Mr. McCarthy, the House Republican leader, pressed his point: “I took President Biden at his word; I took him at his word when he said he was going to get Covid under control,” he declared in the dead of night. “Unfortunately, more Americans have died this year than last year under Covid.”
As cases surge once again in some parts of the country, Republicans have hit on a new line of attack: The president has failed on a central campaign promise, to tame the pandemic that his predecessor systematically downplayed. Democrats are incredulous, dismissing the strategy as another strand of spaghetti thrown at the wall.

White House spokesman Andrew Bates hit back hard: “If Covid-19 and inflation had lobbyists to help them kill more American jobs, Kevin McCarthy would be their favorite member of Congress,” he said. “He is actively undermining the fight against Covid, which is driving inflation.”
And Chris Taylor, a spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, called House Republicans “Covid’s biggest promoter” for “recklessly hand-waving lifesaving vaccines” and for promoting ivermectin, an antiparasitic drug falsely said to cure Covid-19.
“When Republicans abandoned the American people in the middle of a global crisis, House Democrats amped up vaccine distribution to crush the pandemic, reopened schools, small businesses and delivered a massive monthly middle-class tax cut,” Mr. Taylor said.
But Republican strategists and pollsters say Democrats should not be so quick to brush off the criticism, even if many Covid-related deaths this year were among those who ignored Mr. Biden’s entreaties to get vaccinated.

“McCarthy’s first hit on Biden is a competence hit — that he sold himself to voters as the guy who can make a difference in the fight against Covid, yet more Americans are dying,” said Neil Newhouse, a Republican pollster who has surveyed voters on the issue. “The bottom line is that Republicans have always been more focused on the economic impact of the pandemic, and now we’re seeing independents and swing voters expressing concern about those impacts as well: supply chain, inflation, jobs, stores not being open or having what they need.”
He added, “There is a sense that Biden’s presidency is falling short on its promises.”
The Thanksgiving wave is the latest surprise in a pandemic that is nearing its two-year mark. The nation’s 14-day average of new infections is up 25 percent, to over 94,000 new cases a day, with the upper Midwest again the hottest of hot spots. At the same time, the efficacy of the coronavirus vaccines is holding, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Unvaccinated people are 5.8 times as likely to test positive than fully vaccinated people, and 14 times as likely to die if infected.

The partisan gap in infection and vaccination rates is only slightly narrowing. The most Republican counties have 2.78 times as many new cases than the most Democratic counties, down from three times as many a month ago, according to the Democratic health care analyst Charles Gaba, using data from Johns Hopkins University. The death rate in those Republican counties is nearly six times as high as the death rate in the Democratic counties.

It is unclear whether the continuing pandemic or the vaccine mandates devised to beat it are causing the president’s approval ratings to slide. Mr. Newhouse’s firm, Public Opinion Strategies, found Mr. Biden’s overall approval rating for his handling of the pandemic to be a relatively fine 51 percent in October, down from 69 percent in April but only from 53 percent in August.
But in the suburbs, where the 2020 presidential race was won, the president’s approval rating on the pandemic has slipped since August from 51 percent to 45 percent. And among white men, the slide is more pronounced, from 58 percent in April to 43 percent in August and 32 percent in October.

Republican lawmakers are continuing to try to block vaccine mandates at the local, state and federal levels. In September, a proposal by Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas, an obstetrician, to block the use of federal funds to carry out the president’s vaccine mandate for businesses with at least 100 employees failed by one vote, after all 50 Republicans in the Senate backed it.
Later that month, Republican senators introduced legislation to prohibit federal agencies from requiring proof of vaccination. And Mr. Marshall and 10 other senators wrote a letter this month to Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York and the majority leader, vowing to “oppose all efforts to implement and enforce” vaccine mandates “with every tool at our disposal, including our votes on spending measures.”
As Mr. McCarthy faulted Mr. Biden for failing to stop the virus, he also criticized him for demanding people get vaccinated, even health care workers. Mr. Biden, he said, “fired workers who were working because they wouldn’t comply with his Covid mandates. These were the same people who were heroes a year before.”

Matt Sparks, a spokesman for Mr. McCarthy, said he saw no contradiction in fighting vaccine mandates while faulting the president for his pandemic response. For instance, “natural immunity from those that have recovered from infection” should suffice to meet vaccination requirements, he said.
“The lack of acknowledgment of this fact further erodes the public trust in the vaccine and our public health officials,” he added. (The C.D.C. strongly advises that even those who have recovered from Covid-19 get vaccinated, citing a study out of Kentucky that found that previously infected people were more than twice as likely to get Covid-19 again as fully vaccinated people.)

Beyond the science is politics: Republican strategists believe Mr. Biden’s approval ratings on the economy — the key to his party’s prospects in next year’s midterm elections — cannot improve until voters are more satisfied with his performance on the pandemic.
David Winston, a Republican pollster who advises House G.O.P. leadership, said Mr. Biden was repeating a mistake that President Barack Obama made early in his tenure when he interpreted his election in 2008 as a mandate to make good on his promise to provide universal health care, when it was really to right an economy mired in the Great Recession. In Mr. Biden’s case, his pursuit of ambitious social welfare and climate change policies may feel to many voters like a diversion from their central concern — ending the pandemic so that economic life can return to normal.
During the presidential election last fall, Mr. Winston said, “the economy was the No. 1 issue, but you couldn’t get to the economy until you resolved Covid. People trusted Republicans on the economy, but Biden on Covid.”

White House officials say the president has made substantive progress toward ending the pandemic. At this time last year, 250 million adults were not vaccinated. Now, 50 million remain without inoculation. In the administration’s early days, the government was struggling to scrounge up enough vaccine for those who wanted it. Now there is enough to vaccinate adults and children, and for booster shots.
And the nation’s largest employer, the federal government, complied with a vaccine mandate with no real disruptions.
Republicans assert a different response: that the administration squandered an opportunity to bring the country together, by buffaloing through vaccine mandates and sending mixed signals on mask-wearing and booster shots. A more productive strategy, they argue, would have been making a full-throated push for Covid treatments and other approaches that the unvaccinated might have been more willing to accept.
As Mr. Biden’s first year in office nears an end, Republicans argue, the public outlook has changed. “Joe Biden and the Democrats ran an entire campaign based on a dishonest promise that they alone could shut down a worldwide pandemic. They failed and voters are punishing them accordingly,” Mike Berg, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said.

Come August next year, the Republican strategy will be in disarray; the US economy
will be a non-issue, with inflation down, the shelves full, people back to work and
enjoying family leave and child care under the Build Back Better plan.

The Democrats will be able to point out what they have done for voters, and to state
that if given a chance, they are willing and wanting to do more, such as $15/ hr

The GOP will be running away from Trump and his voter fraud claims, as well as ducking
responsibility for their attempt to overthrow the US system of government

Republicans are going to take over the house and senate. History is on there side. No matter how the economy is doing.

It’s the same in 2010 with Obama. He lost both house and senate. It’s the same with trump in 2018 when they lost the house.

The only way democrats could win the midterms is with strong turnout of young voters and blacks which I can’t see that happening next year.

I do not think so. The reason why they took the House under Obama was that
the economy sucked. Obama was engaged in minimalisms, oblivious to his side
of the political isle, obsessed with his own election and already taking the middle
and indecisive road. He asked for $700 billion in stimulus money, and I remember
hearing one of those economists saying the money was too little. He oversold his
plan saying that it was meant to fund shovel-ready projects when only $50 billion
of it went to any infrastructure. He was punished because the terrible economy
he inherited was not sufficiently recovered by the mid-terms. He also lied to the
voters telling them that they would be able to keep the healthcare they had under
his Obama care. Biden is straight up progressive. This is the first time that the rank
and file are actually getting a president who is doing things for them. The Democrats
are not performing Hara Kiri. If they pass build back better, they win because the GOP
does not stand for anything.

Nancy Pelosi took the House from the GOP because she harped on pre-existing
conditions. The GOP got lucky in the presidential elections. The voters punished both
Trump and Pelosi for failing to give them the stimulus checks. The negotiations were
between Pelosi and Mnuchin. McConnell and MaCarthy were out of them and that is
why the GOP House and Senate candidates were not punished.

Pelosi made calculated that she would rather lose the House than let Trump win
reelection by sending out more checks in his name. That is why she refused the good
and increasingly desperate offers from Mnuchin for a deal.

Both parties use there voters anger and do nothing for them.

Republicans use Rednecks anger about immigrants and foreigners taking away there jobs. But when they get into power all they do is give taxcuts to mega corporations and Free trade that enables companies to ship jobs to China

Democrats use black people about how they are oppressed and how the GOP is racist. But as soon as democrats get into power. They use there power to power other groups like LGBT mafia and illegal immigrants and do nothing about the conditions in the black community.

Democrats just lost a blue state like Virginia. And Joe Biden approval is almost approaching under 40 in the RCP average.

There is absolutely no way they can win the midterms. He would need extreme high turnout and young people and blacks do not show up during midterm elections most of them are not even paying attention to politics right now.

The Virginia loss was just statistical noise. It did not represent a trend
The Democrats were in the middle of an intraparty squabble over Build
Back Better and infrastructure. The shelves were empty, prices were up
and the perception was that Dems did not care. By next year, BBB
will be law, and Democrats will be able to point out what they have done
for the voters. They will be able to contrast that with the fact that the GOP
have done nothing for the voters.

GOP only worry for the midterms is 45 when they get their hands on his records at the end of the month he will be taking the GOP down with him. He will sale them out before falling on a sword for them. 45 base will not follow the GOP if 45 goes down and they do nothing to save him.

Virginia was a huge warning sign. When democrats lost it in 2009. They knew come 2010 they would lose the house and senate. History repeats itself. Whoever controls the white always lose the midterms. It goes all the way back to Clinton

Most voters are not going to care about infrastructure. Since most jobs don’t start until 2025.

What Biden needs to focus on is gas prices and trying to do something about food cost. That’s what voters care about.

But 2022 is pretty much gone. Why you think Pelosi is retiring and buying a mansion in Florida. She knows it’s over. She has been in politics for over 40 years.

What is killing the democrats is pretty much wokeness and not focusing on middle class issues. Especially when it comes to Gas and Food prices.

For democrats to win they will need very high turnouts and these elections of 2021 all had low turnout from Texas to Virginia, I don’t see how it increases in 2022.

You didn't see Biden winning so who would trust your vision. You just hoping listening to the right wing media. The Democratic have dominated the GOP for a hundred years. That's the only trend here. The progressives will take the crown back. Them GOP old farts fighting for their lives.

Dems just need to show ads showing the insurrection........

"This is the party that stood by while this happened.
This is the party that that states they love America, the flag, the military and family." (Cut to rioters replacing the US flag with confederate and Drumpf flags. Rioters using weapons/ objects to injure Capitol police....then the specific candidate refusing to vote for the hearing into the insurrection.)

"This is the party that said Covid was a hoax and would disappear in a few months and stood by doing nothing to prepare waiting for it to ravage our nation, economy and destroy famies. Hundreds of thousands of US families would strongly disagree with it being a hoax."

History WAS on their side.....until Jan 6th and Covid

Yeah In the Virginia race all the democrats talk about was Trump, Trump Trump? How did that work out?

Biden approval would need to be 46-47 range in order to win the midterms.

He cost the democrats Virginia so I don’t see how he would win more swing states in 2022.

Republicans will win the house because they have more states to Gerrymander than the democrats. The Senate is different because it's all about turnout and quality candidates to get excited about and no one is stepping up to the plate like last cycle. Schumer was begging established people to run and nobody wanted to. He needs legislation passed so he can avoid AOC running for his seat. We'll see in Feb/Mar.

More Americans have died of Covid in 2021 than 2020, despite vaccines: CDC data

Despite living in one of the richest nations in the world, home to the pharmaceutical companies that have developed some of the world’s leading Covid vaccines, more Americans have died of Covid in 2021 compared to 2020—and things are only going to get worse during the holiday season.
As of Tuesday, 386,233 people have died of Covid in 2021, according to the CDC, compared to 385,343 Covid deaths in 2020. The US is on track to have 13 per cent of its overall deaths this year from coronavirus, an increase from last year’s 11 per cent portion.

A combination of factors including comparatively low vaccination rates, relaxed Covid policies and personal precautions, and the highly contagious Delta variant, are driving this grim trend, according to experts.
Right now, about 60 per cent of Americans are fully vaccinated, the lowest level in the G7 well below the 85 or 90 per cent needed to achieve “endemicity,” a status where the disease still circulates at a low level but doesn’t cause widespread illness.
“We have the very unfortunate situation of not a high level of vaccine coverage and basically, in most places, a return to normal behaviors that put people at greater risk of coming in contact with the virus,” Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist and senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, told The New York Times. “If you take no protections whatsoever, you have a virus that is capable of moving faster and you have dangerous gaps in immunity, that adds up to, unfortunately, a lot of continued serious illness and deaths.”

Some of the Biden administration’s key proposals to slow the spread of coronavirus have also faced strong opposition.
A federal appeals court blocked a White House mandate earlier this month that would require employees at private businesses to be vaccinated or submit to regular Covid testing, calling it a “fatally flawed” remedy that was “staggeringly overbroad,” raising “serious constitutional concerns.”
This week, the American Medical Association, the largest group of doctors in the US, wrote into the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in support of the policy, arguing, “The more workers who get vaccinated, the closer we are to slowing the spread of the virus and creating a safer environment” because “immediate, widespread vaccination against COVID-19 is the surest way to protect the U.S. workforce and the public and to end this costly pandemic.”

Trump Administration handled COVID better than the Biden Administration. That is irrefutable and should be brought up daily to shut up the shills and pro-whites.
I thought they were done talking about COVID and are now on inflation. When did the inflation we talked about last year under Trump become an issue? Remember when they told the bots asset inflation wasn't inflation and we :roflmao2::roflmao3::roflmao: all the way to the bank.

On the real side, how many people do you encounter that know how this shit works? When I explained it to people in 2020, they thought I was crazy. 2020/21 had to be the best time in recorded history to make money and voters who fucked that up will be looking to blame sides in 2022.

The reason for this was the summer surge of the D variant in the stubborn Republican
states. The number next year could be more than 2021 and 2020 combined because
40% of the country refuses to vaccinate. 40% of America is 132 million people- that
is more than the population Germany, or Japan, and far much more than those of the
likes of Italy, UK, Spain, France... It slightly less than that if Russia at 144 million.

What makes the US particularly susceptible is the fact that the majority of the mother
fuckers who refuse to vaccinate are concentrated in particular states. So when these
places are afflicted like covid, the shit spreads like a fire in a Pittsburgh neighbourhood
where ancient 3 story houses are congregated 2 yards apart.

The problem with the sheep is that they lack insight AND foresight which is important for having the gift of being astute. I can’t even have much empathy for them because it is not like they were not warned. Many of us have been posting about it on BGOL, telling friends and family and they still don’t understand.

Fools still saying it is because of “supply chain” when the reality is that it is a MINOR factor. I don’t encounter as many that don’t understand because I don’t even engage with ignorant people. On BGOL, it is entertainment for me because it is mind boggling. Luckily for me, I have control over my family and am able to teach them about economics and personal finance but most people offline I’ve run into have the same sentiment about inflation that most posters on BGOL have.

I personally know a few brothas that withdrew their entire 401(k) during COVID (I believe the max was $100k) and flipped it into over $1M because the stock market was like a broken casino floor and the crypto market was booming in 2020. Even the timid ones did because, like Trump said, “what do you have to lose?” Those brothas have now left corporate America and gotten into STEM.

:lol: generational wealth was established in 2020 and I know that was not the same for everyone but it is difficult to waste time trying to explain concepts to the masses that don’t want to understand because the so-called white man didn’t tell them or it wasn’t on TV.
