Sean Hannity railed against President Biden after his national address on COVID-19. Biden largely blamed the unvaccinated for the ongoing pandemic. Since they didn’t “do the right thing” and get the COVID vaccine, the pandemic remains.

“He claimed that we are to blame for the rise of COVID that happened under his watch,” Hannity said. “Now he’s looking for a scapegoat. So today he vilified the unvaccinated.”

“Do the right thing,” Hannity said, mocking Biden. “Joe’s patience wearing thin? No, Joe, our patience is wearing thin. Since when have you ever done the right thing? And is not about freedom, you canceled all medical freedom today with your broadband data and your mandates, one-size-fits-all medicine. You eliminated medical privacy and doctor-patient confidentiality.”

Then, Hannity pointed out Biden’s lack of medical expertise. “Ask yourself, what does Dr. Joe Biden know about every unvaccinated American?” Hannity said. “Does Dr. Joe Biden know the unique medical history, the current medical condition of 80 million people?”

However, Hannity pointed to research on natural immunity “According to the Cleveland Clinic, those who were infected with COVID, they have natural immunity. This is extremely effective at preventing new illness,” Hannity said. “Now they are saying more research is needed to find out how long immunity lasts. I want to see that research.”

Meanwhile, when former President Trump was in office, Biden blamed him for the pandemic. He openly blamed Trump during his campaign.

“If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive. All the people — I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data!” Biden said at the time.

Now the U.S. has shipped over 140 million doses of the vaccine to countries around the world. There are plans to ship 500 million more in the near future.

Biden Administration Expands Obamacare Coverage for ‘Dreamers’

Friday morning the Biden administration announced it is expanding health-care access for “Dreamers”, a select group of illegal immigrants brought to the country as children. Illegal immigrants enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be granted access to health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House. Beginning in November, DACA members will be able to apply for healthcare coverage on healthcare.gov and state level insurance marketplaces.

“I’m proud of the contributions of Dreamers to our country and committed to providing Dreamers the support they need to succeed,” President Joe Biden said in a prepared statement. “And that’s why today we are taking this historic step to ensure that DACA recipients have the same access to health care through the Affordable Care Act as their neighbors.”

National Review notes Biden was vice president when then-president Barack Obama created DACA through executive order over a decade ago. The program gives deportation protections and work visas to illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children. An estimated 580,000 people are enrolled in the program. Former president Donald Trump failed to put an end to DACA during his term and the program continues to be fought in court.

Over 100,000 DACA beneficiaries will purchase health insurance in the Health Insurance Marketplace and Basic Health Program created by the Affordable Care Act, the Department of Health and Human Services estimates. Access to Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program will not be incorporated into the White House’s new rule after Biden proposed doing so last year, according to National Review.

“Now as Vice President, I have worked alongside President Biden to take steps to preserve and fortify DACA. Today, we are building on this progress by ensuring DACA recipients also have access to affordable health care, which will improve the health of all communities,” Vice President Kamala Harris said in a prepared statement. “This announcement will bring relief to more than 100,000 people and help them thrive while working to achieve their aspirations.”

The White House did not share a cost estimate for the expansion of Obamacare to DACA recipients. They will be eligible for financial assistance to help them afford the health insurance DACA enrollees are now eligible to purchase.

Biden called for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform and to give Dreamers permanent citizenship. It’s unlikely that Congress will grant Biden’s wishes, given the failure of the Senate’s bipartisan immigration package earlier this year. Conservatives widely rejected the Senate’s proposal for not being tough enough on the southern border at a time when record levels of illegal immigrants are entering the country.

Immigration is a top issue for voters in the 2024 election because of the surge in border crossings under Biden’s watch. Polls indicate that Americans believe that Trump is better suited to handle the crisis at the southern border with his hardline approach.
