  1. Dan Stein:

    Even in an age in which trillion dollar spending packages and are considered modest, the additional $20.4 billion the Biden Border Crisis has heaped onto the backs of American taxpayers is still staggering, $20.4 billion could address some very important needs of the American public, instead of covering the costs of the surge of illegal migration triggered by this administration’s policies.

That breaks down to nearly 950 calls from veterans (or nearly 40 calls per hour) every day since Halloween, and more than 200 calls a day from friends and family.

  5. Peter Marks:

    We take our responsibility for reviewing these vaccines very seriously because we're parents as well, and in looking over the data, I think parents can feel reassured that we have set a standard by which we feel that if something does not meet that standard, we can't proceed forward, for those parents who really feel this, we empathize with them, because I suspect that they're not only concerned about the current situation, even though there's a drop in cases, but they're concerned about future variants that could potentially come along, and that's how we're thinking as well. So this was not based on the dropping number of cases, because it's still a staggering number of cases each day that we're having.
