Democrat President Joe Biden told governors on Monday that there was “no federal solution” to combat the coronavirus pandemic and that challenges needed to be tackled at the state-level.
Biden made the remarks after Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson (R), chairman of the National Governors Association, spoke about challenges his state is experiencing in responding to the pandemic.
“And so 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 solution stand in the way of state solutions,” Hutchinson said. “And 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.”

A few moments later, Biden responded, “Look, there is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level.”
Biden repeatedly promised on the campaign that he was going to “shut down the virus.”
As Biden prepares to release yet another Covid “plan” tomorrow, recall that his *only* pitch when running for election was that he’d “shut down” the virus.

Fox News reported:
Biden, however, has put the federal government in a central role on pandemic mitigation measures. The Education Department opened civil rights probes into several states for banning school mask mandates. The president continues to mandate masks in airports, airplanes and on public transportation – and his administration increased fines for those who don’t comply.
And the administration is currently going to the Supreme Court to defend its vaccine mandate for any private businesses with more than 100 employees.
Biden later spoke about the dramatic need to increase testing capacity amid a surge of the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
“For over the counter at home tests, as I said, there, there were none when we took office, none. Now we have eight on the market,” Biden said. “And just three days ago another test was cleared. We went from no over the counter tests in January to 46 million in October, 100 million in November, and almost 200 million in December. But it’s not enough. It’s clearly not enough. If I had, we’d known, we would have gone harder quicker if we could have.”
Joe Biden says if he had “known” about the winter surge in COVID, he "would have gone harder and quicker” on testing.

Coronavirus experts reportedly presented the administration with a 10-page plan more than two months ago that would expand America’s ability to quickly detect the virus by producing hundreds of millions of rapid tests per month for use by Americans.
“The plan called for an estimated 732 million tests per month, a number that would require a major ramp-up of manufacturing capacity,” Vanity Fair reported. “The antigen tests at the center of the plan can detect the virus when patients are at their most contagious. Though less sensitive than polymerase chain reaction (PCR) laboratory tests, which can detect the virus’s genetic material at any stage of infection, antigen tests provide a quick snapshot in time for those seeking assurance that they are safe to travel or won’t accidentally infect vulnerable relatives.”
The plan might have prevented problems that the U.S. is currently experiencing as many Americans are trying to find tests during the holiday season.
“Three days after the meeting, on October 25, the COVID-19 testing experts—who hailed from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the Rockefeller Foundation, the COVID Collaborative, and several other organizations—received a back channel communication from a White House official,” the report added. “Their big, bold idea for free home tests for all Americans to avoid a holiday surge, they were told, was dead.”
Vanity Fair also cited an “administration official” who was allegedly at the meeting, who claimed that such a plan simply wasn’t possible at the time: “We did not have capacity to manufacture over-the-counter tests at that scale.”
Top scientists slammed Biden over the report, including:
So… it’s up to the states, like Texas and Florida have already done and which the idiot Biden idiots denounced.
Florida just set a new state COVID record, with 32 thousand new confirmed cases in a single day.
Today, December 27, Texas reported 15,093 confirmed new cases and 2,338 new probable cases.
The Texas Health and Human Services trend chart is also informative:
Forward any complaints you might have had for Joe Biden to each state’s respective governor.
Abbott’s office, btw, “says vaccines are the best defense to the pandemic.” He just won’t speak those words himself, because…
Florida is the benchmark and highest standard of how to handle the virus.
NY and California offer how NOT to handle the virus.
“Democrat President Joe Biden told governors on Monday that there was “no federal solution” to combat the coronavirus pandemic and that challenges needed to be tackled at the state-level.”
Luckily many Republican governors didn’t wait for our puppet-in-chief to start doing that themselves.
Good job to Ron DeSantis, who’s shown us all how shutting down Covid is actually done.
Positive tests are not “cases.”
Covid-19 is about as big a deal as the common cold or the flu, at this point.
If they’re not reported, they’re nothing to worry about?
June 7, 2021 – Florida Stops Publishing Daily COVID-19 Numbers:
Florida will no longer update its COVID-19 dashboard or release daily updates about COVID-19 cases and deaths.
Now the Florida Department of Health will provide reports about coronavirus cases and vaccines on a weekly basis each Friday, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.
There’s no longer a need to create daily reports, Christina Pushaw, press secretary for Gov. Ron DeSantis, told The News Service of Florida on Friday.
“COVID-19 cases have significantly decreased over the past year as we have a less than 5% positivity rate, and our state is returning to normal, with vaccines widely available throughout Florida,” she wrote in an email.
The latest weekly report, issued on Friday, showed 11,900 new COVID-19 cases and 35 new deaths during the past week. The case positivity rate is 3.6%.
In addition, 10 million Floridians have now received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, which covers about 53% of the population. More than 8.2 million residents are considered fully vaccinated.
Florida’s COVID-19 state of emergency remains in effect until June 26. DeSantis has said that he doesn’t plan to extend it further, The News Service of Florida reported…
December 27, 2021 – Florida COVID-19 update: Cases remain on the rise as 39,032 added to state toll:
Florida on Monday reported 39,032 additional COVID-19 cases and 42 more deaths to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to Miami Herald calculations of CDC data.
This is the largest multi-day increase of newly reported cases since Sept. 6, which saw 46,105. The CDC backlogs cases and deaths for Florida on Mondays and Thursdays, leading to big increases. The increase also includes two days of data as the CDC doesn’t report cases and deaths on Sunday.
All but one of the newly reported deaths — about 98% — occurred since Nov. 29, according to the Herald analysis. About 83% of the newly reported have died in the past two weeks, the analysis showed.
In all, Florida has recorded at least 3,936,170 confirmed COVID cases and 62,389 deaths.
In the past seven days, as the omicron version of the virus has circulated, the state has added 18 deaths and 24,231 cases per day on average, according to Herald calculations of CDC data. That rolling seven-day case average is the highest it’s been since Aug. 23, when it was at 26,203.
“If they’re not reported, they’re nothing to worry about?
June 7, 2021 – Florida Stops Publishing Daily COVID-19 Numbers:” So, since the media stopped showing the running tally of COVID deaths (as they did when the last true President this country had was in office), we shouldn’t worry about the deaths?
Omicron is like the cold. Where science is actually followed, it is treated accordingly, not by using it to spread more fear and dread. Idiot Biden was going to “shut down the virus”. Does it look like he did? They passed a $1.9 trillion bill to address COVID… now, idiot Biden admits that treating the variants as if it was still 2019 isn’t working and that his regime doesn’t want to be bothered with thinking about any solutions. Total, gutless, utter, complete failures. Their only concern is to maintain the amount of fear needed to justify the election fraud they used in 2020 to put this catastrophic failure in office. The consequences are now blatantly obvious.
Omicron is the end of the CCp virus. As unfortunate as it may be, it is a necessary inconvience to gain overwhelming herd immunity.
Always some twist or deflection to make squawk on about how things are exactly opposite of what we can see with out own eyes.
The Omicron disinformation campaign has been in the works for months.
People have a cold in Florida. Given our unelected dictatorship, it’s fair to believe Omicron was imported to Florida just to give you the numbers you have…
That said, this isn’t the silver bullet you pine for from your non-god.
Florida is the standard on how to handle Covid. By the data, and by the science, it’s fact.
Good job, Ron DeSantis.
Hey NJ is the First state to pay out for the evil and murderous placement of Alpha strain positive patients into a veterans retirement facility. 4 more democrat run states to go. I remember when this news story broke, on the Mark Levin radio show, a woman caller from NY she sent the proof to Mark who promptly put it on his website to expose the black hearted bastard and Emmy winner media sweetheart Cuomo.
They rewarded the Mental patient that lived for 50 years as a man that Rachel Levine by promoting it to Assistant Heath Secretary who pulled his/her mother from a home before the Bio Attack of Alpha into PA facilities. The demented Biden made it an Admiral.
comrade greggy poop: still plagiarizing like your idle. you are not that bright to compose this note
“Forward any complaints you might have had for Joe Biden to each state’s respective governor.”
My Democrat Governor speaks for most people, and against Joe Biden, when he says “the emergency is over.”
Joe Biden has killed hundreds of thousands and exacerbated the virus with his abject incompetence.
The over-emphasis on vaccines is idiotic, pathological, and just plain UnConstitutional.
My body, my choice.
Baby’s body, parents choice….both of them.
Looks like Texas and Florida didn’t drop the ball on testing like idiot Biden did.
Let’s remember that while idiot Biden banned travel from Africa (black people), he allowed 2,000,000+ illegal immigrants with an infection rate of 20% to come in and spread them out in Texas and Florida.
Texas and Florida will not be paying out millions of $$ for deliberately putting veterans and seniors at risk of being infected with a virus that was particularly virulent to seniors.
When is Comrade Greggie going to demand Andrew Cuomo spend the rest of his life in prison for his part in the deaths of the aged in New York?
Never. That would be like admitting he was wrong to worship the Emmy-winning charlatan as a god (which he still does anyway).
So the story is about Biden pulling a bait and switch and you deflect to Florida and Texas. Two states people are flocking to. So which state is handling the virus the way you prefer? NY?
So why are they leaving?
If Biden’s COVID Response Was a Gun, He Just Shot Himself
The CCP virus is no longer a pendemic, it is an endemic. Mandatory vaccinations should end immediately. The vaccinated are and have been the problem over the past 6 months.
So, idiot Biden is saying the $1.9 trillion he spent for COVID19 aid was just wasted?
Joe Biden Officially Taps Out on COVID Crisis “There is No Federal Solution”
Today is actually a stunning day in the world of COVID transparency and the manipulation of COVID for political benefit.
After the White House tried the Omicron “winter of death” narrative, they suddenly realized what some (including myself) had mentioned earlier. When you require something, you are by nature of that requirement taking ownership of the outcome.
The Biden administration mandates -writ large- mean the government has to take ownership of the outcome. Thus, if government tests are required then government is responsible for testing.
The problem is, when any entity takes ownership, they are setting themselves up for accountability and criticism.
White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain should have been prepared for that; but, like all things in Biden’s crazy world of ‘throw it at the wall and see what sticks’ policy making, the White House had no system, plan or intent to take ownership of anything – nor are they going to.
Today, Joe Biden officially tries to take the U.S. government out of the COVID mess by saying “there is no federal solution” to the crisis their COVID-19 response created. Yes, JOE BIDEN SAID THAT. Directly and without any pause as to the ramification of what he was saying or reading.
For two years Joe Biden has critiqued, criticized, complained and promised that his administration would handle the spread of COVID-19 and all the downstream consequences. Today, all of that is summarily trashed -as if it never existed- and the White House proclaims that individual states are now responsible for every outcome on their own. WATCH (40 seconds):
Why the shift? Because the crisis they created is about to be very visible, on a local level, in every town.
Obviously, the White House can NOW clearly see the looming crisis they have created by their COVID policies, dictates and mandates. A genuine shitstorm is unfolding in real time, and I guarantee you CoS Ron Klain (and the crew behind Biden) have been given detailed, specific briefings and information about the scale of the national COVID mess that is about to surface.
It’s not just the deadlines for the vaccination mandates hitting hard and creating an absolute mess with the testing requirements, and it’s not just a shortage of workers this vaccine requirement is creating, and it’s not just the amplified shortage of workers who test positive and must remain quarantined. It’s actually a much bigger mess within the cumulative economic and social ramifications.
Keep in mind the vast majority of Americans are done with two years of COVID-19 and variant fear mongering. That’s why the “winter of death” narrative backlash was so strong and so transparently dangerous on a political level to the White House after deployment. They started backtracking within 72 hours and trying to thread a needle between calm control and the more useful panic/crisis.
The federal government triggered mandatory vaccine or testing requirements. That process requires COVID tests. However, now the federal government is trying to back away from the crisis created by the testing demand and throwing the testing responsibility to the states. The testing mess has only just begun.
Meanwhile, the Omicron variant is nothing more than a cold, yet the federal government has overhyped the Omicron fear and is now dealing with the outcome. Think about this example from a commonsense perspective: The federal government hyped Omicron to install more mandates, and simultaneously the quarantine time for Omicron positive test result was lowered to 5 days. These two points conflict with each other.
The COVID mess is going to get worse specifically because Biden is responsible for it, and specifically because everything the Biden team does is based on politics of COVID. Their supporters are about to discover just what a hot mess this administration has created. Right now, those administration supporters are only seeing the tip of the iceberg, while the media works earnestly to shout ‘look over here, shiny things, shiny things’.
Inflation data is going to hit hard, and it’s going to hit soon. Lower price inventories now depleted are going to be replaced with much more expensive stuff coming in that carries the cumulative cost increases of Biden policy. Combine that with the mounting COVID mess that’s about to come to a head, and you can see the panic in the White House that has now triggered them to try and get distant from it.
Can you hear that sound in the distance?…
Yup, “Let’s Go Brandon” is about to get a boost from even more rapidly dropping Biden supporters.
2021 Population Changes by State
Final thought…. RIGHT NOW, and for the next few months, is when we need to get really worried about the people behind Joe Biden going to war with some foreign country or entity over some cooked up reason to try and distract from these outlined and looming domestic consequences.
One might ask, why is the biden regime trying to offload their incompetance upon the states? It is crystal clear that they have created this mess and did so intentionally.
I can only imagine the msm reaction had this or anything like this occurred while President Trump was in office…
biden is an unmitigated disaster
They need to declare the emergency OVER.
The omicron variant is no worse than the common cold.
Of course they won’t. Why? If they did, the emergency authorization for the “vaccines” would vanish. Big pharma would magically stop all vaccines immediately. Suddenly they would be liable for deaths and injuries.
“One might ask, why is the biden regime trying to offload their incompetance upon the states? It is crystal clear that they have created this mess and did so intentionally.” I guess Kumallover is just too busy to take on another task.
So Biden surrendered?
Yeah, makes sense.
