Capehart and Abernathy on COVID deaths, pandemic funding and January 6 subpoenas


Gary Abernathy:

Well, it’s hard to come up with good arguments not to come up with a life-saving vaccine.

But when you talk about what happened two years ago and how it happened, you have to remember that we took a unique approach to fighting this thing on a national scale. And I know communities that got a huge influx of COVID money and couldn’t figure it out – couldn’t figure out how to spend it all.

I mean, it was kind of, let’s just throw a lot of money there. And this is not a Republican or Democrat criticism. Donald Trump was one of them. Donald Trump also endorsed these things. Republicans and Democrats did.

And now some people are starting to say, well, wait a minute, where is our priority list? Where is it on President Biden’s priority list? Is it — is it over Ukraine? Is it above helping more – with more money for Ukraine? Is it more important than the Build Back Better program? Is it more important than giving up student loans?

Perhaps. For me, I think providing these vaccines is. But, at some point, we reach a point where this money no longer exists. We don’t really have that money to spend. And so I think people are asking – asking the president, hey, to prioritize. And I think he has a plan that says, OK, now we’re going to prioritize people.

We’re going to provide vaccines maybe only to those most at risk, people 60 and over, people with immune issues.
