On Friday’s show of “Varney & Co.” Fox Business Network’s House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said President Joe Biden is trying to fire health care workers, when he “should be firing the incompetent people who have brought back to another COVID outbreak when he said he was going to stop the virus. And that especially applies to anyone who has decided to reject proposals to ramp up testing in October 2021.
Scalise said: “Stuart, he was presented with a plan – at least there are reports that say so – in October to speed up testing. And as you just pointed out, people are looking for test kits. They line up for hours and hours at a stretch. In October, he was told more than likely around Christmas that there would be another outbreak, we would have to order 750 million tests, and President Biden rejected that plan. What I said was that we have to have a hearing to find out, first of all, did this happen? The White House has been silent on this. But if it happened, who was involved in that decision? Who made the decision not to order these tests? These people should be fired. He is trying to fire our health care workers. He should fire the incompetent people who brought us back to another COVID outbreak when he said he was going to stop the virus.
