Manning in Townhall: Rubio’s Response to Biden Health Rationing puts Democrats in Tough Spot

President Joe Biden is the latest in a long line of Democrats who seem to think that just because they got elected to office, they should determine what patients should get which medicines.

TOWNHALL

By Richard Manning

What is it with Democrats and their desire to play doctor for the rest of the country?

President Joe Biden is the latest in a long line of Democrats who seem to think that just because they got elected to office, they should determine what patients should get which medicines.

The latest dispute is over Biden’s decision to ration access to monoclonal antibody treatments the FDA has approved as very effective in treating COVID, thus ending the “COVID is death” narrative.

But Biden has decided that he needs to ration these medicines and keep them out of the hands of doctors in states which have not bowed the knee sufficiently to his vaccine and mask mandates.  States which, not coincidentally, are led by governors whom he fears will lead the GOP in taking back the White House in 2024. Florida being first and foremost in his sites.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), however, has an answer to Biden’s COVID treatment rationing. The question is, will Florida Democrats choose to save their constituents lives or stand with Biden on his political grandstanding power play?
