I wonder if they lean in hard into the "2% mortality and 2 in 100K mortality are the same thing" argument Acting DHS tried yesterday to cheer everyone up.

Who appointed him?  There's your answer.
 
2020-02-26 2:52:50 PM  
Everyone panic, because reasons.

I am spending way too much time studying the scalp of woman suffering from severe alopecia behind congressman Pocan.

Wait, what? Seriously?

It's always refreshing when the CSPAN camera does a pan shot and shows that there is hardly anyone there.  America cares a lot about this clearly

Wow Azar is a piece of shiat and Kennedy wrecks him

Is the member of the CDC going to be that Chonker with the 40 gallon hat and cowboy boots?
 
2020-02-26 3:16:48 PM  
I wish someone with a piano wire would come behind azar and chop his farking head off. farking piece of shiat defending kids, immigrants and people with coronavirus not having health insurance is alright

He's talking to Congress about how pharmaceutical companies went from 7B in 2012 to 19B or whatever in 2019.

To Congress.

Where the majority of them are bought by entities like pharmaco's.
 
2020-02-26 3:24:01 PM  
Whew, glad I am not watching this one, it seems like garbage.

"Can you promise that American families won't lose their health coverage?"

I get the feeling something huge is about to drop, and we're already halfway to Friday

I am much more looking forward to Drumpf trying to spin the wonderful stock market - I mean how the Administration is protecting us from the Coronaviris. I'm sure he thought the DOW would go up by his mere presence and he'd say it's indicative of how the world thinks we'll do - but losing more is bad juju.

It's sure to be steaming.....

So, Pompeo is in charge
 
2020-02-26 4:35:07 PM  
None of these panelists can answer a question directly.

I wonder who is profiting from this disaster or from making this a disaster.
 
2020-02-26 4:44:19 PM  
Congress should approve only money that go directly to states
 
2020-02-26 4:47:27 PM  
Azar is saying private pharmcos must be able to make their profit margins.
 
2020-02-26 5:06:03 PM  
They're lying about the quarantines and the strategic stockpile.
 
2020-02-26 5:08:23 PM  
Ooh, an actual PHYSICIAN (Rep. Ruiz) asking questions
 
2020-02-26 5:09:44 PM  
No funds for reimbursement.
 
2020-02-26 5:10:11 PM  

GreatGlavinsGhost: No funds for reimbursement.


For local health officials

Dumbass just had to kiss Republican President Father's ass.
 
2020-02-26 5:13:46 PM  
WTF does ass kissing have to do with this?
 
2020-02-26 5:14:28 PM  
Oh, and Buschon is also a physician, so I guess even a doctor can be a dumbass.
 
2020-02-26 5:16:43 PM  
Looks like we're done here.

Damn, what a mess.

If Trump is really worried about reelection he might want to avoid arguing that the cure to a potential pandemic better maximize shareholder value.

I love how everyone on the panel has to say what a great job Trump is doing.

As a Canadian, I cannot imagine an important vaccine like this not being absolutely free.

Cull the poor.

albertmdh: Cull the poor.


If you eat the rich, to you obtain their vaccine immunity?

Did anyone ask him why he wants the government to do anything when he ran and was elected on destroying the administrative state?

Worth a shot.
