As a sign that the government will soon be led by adults with government interests, Joe Biden revealed his full COVID plan on his transition website.
The testing part of the plan alone will make a huge difference as Biden will do things that are not currently being done:
– Double the number of passage inspection points.
– Invest in next generation testing, including home testing and instant testing, so we can expand our testing capacity by orders of magnitude.
– Set up a Pandemic Testing Board like Roosevelt’s War Production Board. In this way we have manufactured tanks, planes, uniforms and supplies in record time and in this way we will produce and distribute tens of millions of tests.
– Establish a US Public Health Jobs Corps to mobilize at least 100,000 Americans across the country, with the support of trusted local organizations in the most vulnerable communities, to conduct culturally literate approaches to tracing and protecting vulnerable populations.
The United States was a rudderless ship as the Trump White House had no interest in actual day-to-day government duties. Trump didn’t read briefing books and didn’t judge by his public appointments. His oral letters were extremely limited in time and space.
Donald Trump had no political plans. Detailed goals and methods are described on the Biden Transition website. If Democrats can win two Senate runoffs in Georgia, the sky’s the limit as adults are back in command and ready to take action.
