Action: We Can Do Better Than “It Is What It Is”




Trump has no policy or plan to protect Americans from COVID-19. He never will.

Seven months after he boasted to Bob Woodward that he knew COVID-19 was airborne and deadly his only focus remains the stock market and his re-election.  

The choice is clear.  We must choose leadership that values our lives, knows to recover from COVID-19, knows we all need to be in this together, and insists we must listen to science.  

Biden’s platform does all of that:  

  • Establishes a national testing board and a Public Health Job Corps.

  • Returns our public health institutions to scientists.

  • Ensures all Americans have free access to vaccines and treatment

  • Establishes an Infectious Disease Racial Disparities Task Force to confront the racism and discrimination in pandemic response.

  • Supports state and local governments.

  • Supports mask mandates.

While Trump:

  • Pushes businesses and schools to reopen regardless of the risk.

  • Directs the CDC to recommend reduced testing and alters reports to hide the actual number of deaths.

  • Pushes an untested vaccine to market before elections. 

  • Listens to Big Pharma lobbyists and conspiracy theorists rather than scientists in HHS leadership.


When we call Congress and work for Biden/Harris we are working to build back better.
