Guthrie: President Biden deserves an ‘F’ for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02), who serves as the top Republican of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Health Subcommittee, released the following statement on President Biden’s year of mishandling the COVID-19 pandemic.
“President Trump had to start from scratch to fight COVID-19. Last year President Trump gifted President Biden Operation Warp Speed, which delivered safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics for the American people in record time. As a result of President Trump’s leadership and Congressional Republicans, around one million Americans were getting vaccinated each day by their own choice. Yet, with President Biden’s complete mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen shortages of COVID-19 therapeutics, confusing and politically compromised COVID-19 guidance, and overreaching mandates that undermine vaccine confidence and exacerbate labor shortages. President Biden deserves an ‘F’ for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Guthrie.
