CRUZ INTRODUCES BILL TO BYPASS BIDEN, WOULD GIVE STATES POWER TO DIRECTLY ORDER MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES
Staff | January 11, 2022
Americans continue to suffer the devastating consequences of feckless and dementia-ridden Joe Biden.
Fortunately, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz is fighting back.
Biden recently stomped on states rights with a federal takeover of monoclonal antibody treatment. This prevents states from directly purchasing COVID-19 treatments like monoclonal antibodies.
States can only purchase COVID-19 treatments through the Biden administration and its distribution restrictions.
Many people, such as Florida surgeon general General Joseph A. Ladopo, have sounded the alarm because Biden is clearly failing to adequately and fairly distribute the antibody treatment.
In response, Cruz has introduced a bill that would allow states to directly purchase COVID-19 treatments.
The bill, S3440, would amend the Defense Production Act of 1950 and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to allow states to use federal funds to purchase supplies related to COVID-19.
The legislation would also prohibit the federal government from prioritizing Federal contracts over State contracts relating to purchasing supplies to combat the COVID19 pandemic.
Cruz told Fox News, For months, many of us have been sounding the alarm over the Biden administrations federal takeover of monoclonal antibody treatment distribution.
The bill Ive introduced would empower states to determine their own needs, so those now facing critical shortages because of the Biden administrations misguided policy can ensure their citizens are able to get the care they need.
President Biden has finally admitted that states, not the federal government, are the answer in situations like this and my bill is a great first step in that direction, the statement added.
