Sara Carter To Pelosi: ‘Put the blame where it needs to reside…on the Chinese Communist Party’

Sara A. Carter criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during Fox News’ “The Next Revolution” Sunday night for her response to the coronavirus pandemic, specifically her delay in pushing necessary funding through Congress after the emergency Paycheck Protection Program reached its funding limit of $350 billion last week.

The nationwide lockdown has only made matters worse for working Americans as the number of Americans filing for unemployment reached 22 million last week.

“If Nancy Pelosi wants to do the right thing for the American people as House Speaker, she should stop playing politics and she should put the blame where it needs to reside, and that is on the Chinese Communist Party that not only wounded and hurt their own people, but the rest of the world,” Carter said.

Carter added, “And if we stay together and focused on that, we can make real effective changes, but we can’t when the Democrats keep playing these political games.”

Pelosi has put the blame on President Donald Trump saying “his earlier delay and denial caused deaths.” During an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with host Chris Wallace, Pelosi assured American workers and small business owners that more money will be coming ‘soon’ pending bipartisan agreement.

“We want to add more money there,” Pelosi said, but added that “it is very urgent though that we support our — our police and fire, our health care workers, our nurses, our teachers.” She continued, “that’s what the state and local government is about, is meeting the needs of the coronavirus. And everything that we’re doing is about the coronavirus, understand that.”

Republicans have called for $250 billion in additional funding, but Democrats have refused the offer and the two parties are at a standstill.

“They will have more money as soon as we come to an agreement — which will be soon,” Pelosi said. “And I think people will be very pleased because these small businesses must thrive in a community where they’re, again, health is essential to them opening up.”

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
