Trump authorizes reduced funding for National Guard coronavirus response through 2020

Source: The Hill

-snip-

The memo indicates that the federal government will no longer cover 100 percent for states' use of National Guard forces for the COVID-19 response once the existing authorization expires on Aug. 21.

Instead, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will fund 75 percent of the National Guard's activities related to "preventing, mitigating, and responding to the threat to public health and safety posed by the virus."

The governors warned that they have to start transitioning the forces to state control and funding well ahead of that deadline, though, disrupting planning for the coronavirus response.

The looming lapse in funding was a major point of discussion in a call among governors and Vice President Pence earlier in the day, according to a person on the call. States were not given advance notice before the memo was put out publicly on Monday night, the person said.

Another move to undermine testing, and to make things harder for the states.

4. IMO he is trying to hide the actual positive cases.

He has said it, that if there is a cutting back on testing, there will be less cases.

7. I can't even summon outrage anymore.

I'm numb to all the underhanded, inhumane dumbfuckery Trump, his family, and congressional republicans have committed in the past 3 1/2 years. I wish I could still get mad at any of this shit, but I'm completely out of shits to give. I really do feel bad about that, but the well is dry.
