    US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said on Wednesday that he expects COVID-19 vaccines to be ready soon. According to CNN, Azar said he anticipates "one or two safe and effective" vaccines by the end of the year.

  • Yeah, No: Top Senate Republican 'Not Optimistic' Stimulus Deal Will Arrive Before Election

    Despite US President Donald Trump's vocal push for a new COVID-19 stimulus package, it appears unlikely that one will come before Election Day. On Tuesday, Business Insider reports Trump signaled he wanted an ever-larger deal than the $2.2 trillion bill proposed by House Democrats. But according to Business Insider, Senate Republicans are skeptical that anything is going to happen anytime soon. It's getting to be toward the last minute. And the clock keeps ticking away. And I'm not optimistic about us doing anything. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL)Chairman, Senate Appropriations Committee Furthermore, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pushed for a far slimmer package than Democrats and the president. The GOP has prioritized Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett over economic relief for Americans. But on Tuesday, Trump phoned in to 'Fox and Friends' to say he wants a stimulus program even larger than the Democrats' proposed $2.2 trillion package.

  • A Thousand Current And Former Employees Protest Politicization Of CDC

    Over 10,000 people work at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And according to Business Insider, a thousand current and former CDC officers have put their names to a letter criticizing the politicization of the health agency. The letter comes after a Kaiser poll revealed 62% of adults reported last month they fear 'political pressure' will rush a coronavirus vaccine. In September, Trump administration officials reportedly delayed CDC reports that were not in line with its politics. The White House also planted two political operatives, with no public health experience, in the CDC to keep the agency's scientists on message. The absence of national leadership on COVID-19 is unprecedented and dangerous. Open letter from current and former CDC employees to the Trump Administration

  • As Doors Slam All Around Him, Trump Spends Election Run-Up Ranting On Fox News

    US President Donald Trump appears to be running out of lifelines to save himself politically. CNN reports Trump had hoped a range of pivotal events would turn the electoral tide in his direction, but they're vanishing as quickly as Halloween candy. A coronavirus vaccine hasn't been created. Nor has a massive stimulus package materialized. And the investigation into the Clinton Foundation was a bust. So the president has taken to dialing Fox hosts from the White House and ripping his senior-most Cabinet members for not delivering before election day. It's an unfamiliar experience for a man used to getting what he wants. He is in a completely different universe right now where nobody is left, really, to help him out of the jams he keeps getting himself into.
