White House COVID leader announces need for new funding toward vaccines and treatments

White House COVID-19 response coordinator Ashish Jha said on Sunday that the nation needs Congress to authorize additional funding for vaccines and treatments later this year.

Jha shared the comments during an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with Mike Emmanuel.

“Let me be very clear on why we need the money. We’re going to have a new generation of vaccines, my hope is in the fall. There are a lot of really promising treatments coming down the pike. None of those things are going to be available for the American people if Congress does not step up and fund these efforts,” Jha said.

Jha also responded that the recent extension of the federal government’s airline mask mandate until May 3 seemed “pretty reasonable,” a move angering many Americans.

The Senate is considering a deal that would include an additional $10 billion in funding for COVID, but many Republicans are opposing the bill over the Biden administration’s cancellation of Title 42 that allows Border Patrol to stop migrants from entering the nation to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

The face-off could result in the bill not passing, a move that would have a strong negative impact on Jha’s work.

Great idea – when the EPA just used funds set aside for COVID to push “woke” agenda!!! Sounds like a violation of federal law to me. But, no surprise in this administration. Just stick the taxpayers with the bill for whatever they want!! I can hardly wait for November!
