    No it doesn't.

    Not until seriously pursuing those Americans who break the law by hiring them is done.

    Then IF that doesn't work get back to me.

    Because those followers do exist in disturbing numbers and may not submit to Darwinism fast enough.

    And my attack was on Republican, who have NEVER gone after employers, even when they controlled the government.

    The abiding truth is that none of that matters for two reasons:

    1) The CDC doesn’t need any money to exercise common sense. Money doesn’t solve for the fact that their implementation of containment protocols has been and continues to be a comedy of errors.

    2) It need this money to implement its pandemic contingency except that contingency plan has several predicates that aren’t satisfied anyway. For example, it needs a stockpile of at least 20 million doses of pre-developed vaccine. The CDC has no real plan for managing a pandemic involving a novel virus like this one.
    1) The "comedy of errors" couldn't possibly be a result of firing competent people and hiring of those who swear loyalty to Trump - now could it?

    2) from post #5 "The CDC is working on a new test to screen for the coronavirus, but according to New York magazine, problems with the test's development resulted in only three out of 100 public-health labs being equipped to screen for the virus. Moreover, each test costs as much as $250, and the Health and Human Services Department is already running out of money to finance an adequate response to the outbreak.

    One of the problems with fighting virus-caused diseases - the viruses mutate quickly, storing 25 million doses of "pre-developed vaccine" may be a waste of storage space and funding. I have read that due to the rapid development of the CVD-19 virus, vaccines may not be available for a year or more.

    1) Absolutely not. The errors being made are mostly a lack of common sense on the part of people who should know better at both the federal and local level.

    2) You missed the point. The CDC has no adequate response plan to implement for a novel virus. The only pandemic contingency it has ever developed relies upon a scenario involving a known virus for which we already have a vaccine and a large enough stockpile of it to inoculate a minimum of 20 million people. And let’s keep in mind the fact that the only treatment on offer for this virus in America is literally Tylenol and chicken soup. If you’re looking for money just to figure out how to test for it then it’s already too late and it doesn’t matter if the CDC has all the money ever printed.

    Borders stop the corona virus? Who knew?

    In fact, from what I have read not one case in the US has been traced back to someone illegally crossing the border from Mexico. So far, it appears to have been introduced to the US by people flying into the US.
