And because the U.S. "supply is not unlimited," Psaki added, "we believe it should be equitable across states across the country." Highlighting one of the many issues with central government control over the distribution of resources, Psaki declared that "Our role, as the government overseeing the entire country, is to be equitable in how we distribute." Explaining how the Biden administration views equity in this situation, Psaki said "we're not going to give a greater percentage to Florida over Oklahoma."
It's hard to imagine that Biden would have told then-Governor Cuomo of New York or Governor Newsom of California that they wouldn't be receiving the full amount of lifesaving monoclonal antibodies they requested because Oklahoma needed to get the same "equitable" amount. It's also hard to imagine the media would give cover to President Trump if he decided to tell Democrat governors that he'd be withholding a lifesaving treatment.
After President Biden attacked Republican governors in an address on Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki denied reports that Biden was cutting lifesaving Wuhan coronavirus treatments to red states.Reports
