The Coronavirus has panicked Americans across the country. Places like Costco and Walmart and being wiped out of disinfectant wipes, paper towels and toilet paper. As the hysteria continues to grow, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) decided to debunk a number of claims that are being perpetrated by both Democrats and the mainstream media. 

One of the ads failed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg ran was about the Trump administration. In the ad, he claimed the Trump administration cut funding from the Center for Disease Control. 

"This is false. They haven't," Crenshaw explained. "The Associated Press had to fact check Mike Bloomberg for making this really dishonest claim."

"In fact, over the last five years, we've increased funding for a lot of the resources that we need for this kind of epidemic," he explained. 

President Trump has met with pharmaceutical companies to work on creating a vaccine for the future, although that will take time to produce.

"Bernie Sanders and many other Democrats have been making the implication that the vaccine would only be available for the rich. This isn't true because there is no vaccine," Crenshaw explained. "It probably won't be available for another year."

According to the Congressman, efforts are being made to create a vaccine, but right now, all that Congress can do is allocate funds "to better testing and treatments for the disease."

Democrats point to policies like Medicare for All as a way of fighting the Coronavirus, saying 

"As the Wall Street Journal pointed out, the kind of innovation for treatments and vaccines that we need to battle the Coronavirus, that all comes from the private industry," Crenshaw said. "That kind of innovation in research and development that's actually been happening even before this epidemic, would be put to a halt when you implement price controls that are inherent in the Medicare for All scheme."

Democrats and members of the Democratic media complex ran with the notion that President Trump called the Coronavirus a "hoax." What he was really referring to was how Democrats are using this epidemic to push their own political agenda.

"Is he really downplaying it? Of course not. What he was saying was, he's tired of the Democrats trying to politicize this entire thing," Crenshaw explained. "When he says, 'Don't panic,' it doesn't mean he's not taking it seriously. It doesn't mean that our government, as a whole, isn't taking it very, very seriously. Of course, we should, but we also shouldn't panic."

The Congressman said Congress wants everyone to be safe. He also reminded Americans to wash their hands and stay home if they're sick. 

Crenshaw is absolutely right. Having policies, like Medicare for All, would prevent innovation and new technology from emerging. If businesses are prevented from investing and making money, then they have no incentive to try to find cures for diseases, like cancer, or vaccines for diseases, like Coronavirus. Democrats continually use this epidemic to spread fear. Instead of putting politics aside to work with the Trump administration, they would rather see the Amerian people suffer... all in the name of partisanship.
