I’ve been saying since March that we can’t beat COVID with an “Articles of Confederation” response. We have a national government for a reason. If Donald Trump won’t use it to beat this killer disease, I know someone who will, starting on 1/20/21. https://t.co/8yb3vTa8na

President Joe Biden said that the COVID-19 pandemic “gets solved at the state level” because there is no federal solution during a virtual meeting with state governors and his COVID-19 response team Monday.
“Look, there is no federal solution,” Biden said in response to statements from Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson. “This gets solved at the state level. My message to the governor is simple: If you need something, say something and we’re going to have your back in any way we can.”
It’s amazing how quickly things change when you’re forced to go from empty rhetoric to recognizing reality:

Biden said he would “shut down the virus, not the country” during a presidential debate against former President Donald Trump in October 2020.
How did that work out?
