In remarks from the White House on Thursday — billed as "Remarks on Leveling the Playing Field in Our Economy to Bring Down Costs and Ensure that the Backbone of the Country, the Middle Class, Can Finally get a Break" — quickly turned vindictive as Biden repeated his attacks on Republican-led states.
"The governors of Florida and Texas are doing everything they can to undermine the lifesaving requirements that I have proposed," Biden said repeating a line of attack he first used in a non sequitur speech on the Wuhan coronavirus as his failed Afghan airlift was underway.

Biden's blind partisanship is, unsurprisingly, based in fantasy. Republican governors in Florida and Texas have pursued measures that ban mask mandates — which is different than an outright ban on masks, despite the lies peddled by Biden and other Democrats — while President Biden is the one who is undermining life-saving measures in those states. In what appears to be petty political maneuvering, Biden is putting American lives at risk. This development is somewhat unsurprising given he's also left Americans stranded behind Taliban lines in Afghanistan, but it's disturbing nonetheless.
As has been reported by officials in Florida, the Biden administration blindsided Florida's health officials by restricting the supply of monoclonal antibody treatments without warning.

NEW: Florida says its bracing for a big reduction in monoclonal antibody doses. Blames the Biden Administration. @GovRonDeSantis' office released these #'s:— Jay O'Brien (@jayobtv) September 15, 2021
- 72,000 doses is average need for hospitals + state clinics
- 30,950 total doses were allocated by feds this week
And in Texas, a similar situation unfolded when Biden and his administration cut supply for the same treatments for residents in the state. It is clear that Biden is pursuing an "agenda of cruelty" against those he disagrees with politically.
WOW. Read this. The Biden administration is reportedly reducing its supply of monoclonal antibodies to states like Texas. Add this to pharmacies refusing to fill prescriptions for treatments that are saving lives under the direction of the CDC, and the agenda of cruelty is clear. pic.twitter.com/JVVN3H5nF7— Allie Beth Stuckey (@conservmillen) September 16, 2021
Pair the Biden administration's withholding of lifesaving monoclonal antibody treatments with the CDC's directive for pharmacies to stop filling prescriptions for ivermectin — another drug doctors prescribe to help COVID patients fight the virus — and it's clear that Joe Biden is playing politics with the lives of Americans simply because of the state in which they live. Contrary to what he claimed of Texas and Florida, it is President Biden who is engaging in the "worst kind of politics."
