(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Upset that additional COVID funding is not moving through Congress as fast as he would like it to, President Joe Biden sent White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki to the White House Press Briefing Room to chastise Republicans for, as she and Biden see it, playing politics with COVID funding that is needed “otherwise people are going to die.
You can watch the video of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki a bit further down this post.
As you’ll witness in the video, according to Psaki during her press briefing:
“Our point, it’s [additional COVID funds] not political. The vast majority of people who are opposing this moving forward are Republicans. That is a fact. Our point here is that there is an urgency to move forward. We can have a range of debates about a range of issues we have disagreements on. That’s fine. Immigration. Childcare. Environmental rules. We welcome that. By the way, the president put forward an immigration bill his first day in office. If Republicans want to work on immigration, come on down to the White House, we’re happy to work with you on it. But right now, this is a game of politics, and we need to get this funding otherwise people in the country are going to die. That’s our larger point” [emphasis added]
