GOP senators ask for more CDC funds after voting previously to cut them

By Dan Desai Martin -March 2, 2020 3:25 PM

Many lawmakers now calling for additional CDC funds to address the coronavirus outbreak voted in 2017 to repeal Obamacare, which would have cut hundreds of millions from the agency's budget to fight public health crises.

Several Republican senators facing tough reelection races are now clamoring for more federal funds to deal with the new coronavirus outbreak.

But just a few years ago, those same lawmakers voted to repeal Obamacare, which would have slashed $1 billion in funds for the CDC's Prevention and Public Health Fund, including hundreds of millions set aside "for detecting and responding to infectious diseases and other public health threats."

Last week, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) said that $2.5 billion proposed by the Trump administration to deal with the coronavirus outbreak "may just be a down payment."

Earlier in the month, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) wrote a letter to congressional appropriators requesting "sufficient funding for both current and potential future efforts" to deal with outbreaks.

1. Where's the money going to come from, boys?

And will Trump deride Senate Republicans about the money ask the way he was deriding the Democrats last week?

Will anyone in the media even recognize the complete 180 Republicans have done in less than a week?

3. Nothing like sticking their foot in their mouths, eh? Hypocrites. Now that they've shot ...

themselves in the foot with their ridiculous rhetoric from just a few days ago (cut cut cut/slash slash slash). It's not a pretty look to run backwards w/o falling, eh republicans?

When things get tough, the republicans seem to want to duck and hide, or go running away.

This seems to be a good way to describe them and their 'policies' of the moment. They simply got caught w/ their ridiculous rhetoric and it's making them look awful stupid or worse.
