AOC Makes Suggestion That Coronavirus Tests In US Are Going To ‘Wealthy And Powerful’ First

Published

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently went off on the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping across America — much like every other leftist — seemingly suggesting that the tests for the illness are going to the “wealthy and powerful” first.

Here’s more from Fox News:

“South Korea has up to 10,000 tests per day,” Ocasio-Cortez said during an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier. “They’ve been able to provide tests to any single person that wants it, and here people are scrambling. It almost seems like the more wealthy and powerful you are, the more able you are to access a test. But the rougher road you’ve got here, it’s going to be a lot more difficult to access health care. That’s exactly a recipe for disaster in a pandemic.”

South Korea has more than 7,800 cases of the virus, which causes a disease known as COVID-19, but reports of new cases appear to have slowed after weeks of intensive monitoring for infections. According to The New York Times, the country has tested more than 235,000 people, while health officials have carefully tracked down people who may have symptoms, testing more than 10,000 people daily. The government also opened drive-through testing centers.

Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star in the Democratic Party, also questioned whether the U.S. health care system is the “best in the world.”

“That’s something that’s up for debate,” she said.


The U.S. being the best health care system in the world is not really up for debate, much to the surprise of a socialist like AOC. Just go to places where universal health care exists and you’ll see unbelievably long waits for treatment, sloppy care from supposed professionals in the medical field, and all sorts of problems.

Our health care system is indeed the best, which is why so many individuals from other countries opt to come here for serious procedures.

AOC is just being her typical, ignorant self on this issue.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Published

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
