If mandates don’t work, this might: Kaiser reports 72% of US healthcare plans are no longer waiving Covid-19 treatment cost (as of 8/31). Context: Medicare has estimated covid hospitalizations average $24K in costs. Get ready to pay if you don’t get vaccinated.

Every adult diagnosed with COVID-19 in Idaho is on a universal do not resuscitate order. Every adult. Don’t try to live with the virus. Get vaccinated if you can. Wear a respirator or well fitted mask, good seal, and ventilate your workspaces/schools.
Meanwhile, in Idaho...

Replying to @GOPLeader
Using veterans to make yourself look good is pathetic, even for you Kevin McCarthy. 10 years ago you promised vets in your district a new VA clinic and still haven't delivered. More empty promises. You know nothing about service to country. You're a disgrace and dishonor vets.

As all eyes are on the Capitol today, on the other side of the National Mall is a new reminder of the pandemic’s toll on the U.S.: An art exhibition by Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg, through Oct. 3. Visitors are lining up at a booth to write remembrances to loved ones on flags.

Saw the photos and had to go see it myself. More than 670,000 white flags are flying on the National Mall memorializing victims of the pandemic. They’ll be out here through October. Stunning and tremendously powerful, sparkling in the evening sunlight.

In his last hours as POTUS, Trump gave 6 months’ extra Secret Service protection to his adult kids and 3 aides. Now we know the cost: $1.7 million, as agents followed the 7 to weekends in Cabo, ski trips to Utah, and business trips to the UAE. washingtonpost.com/politics/…

US hospitals are overwhelmed with patients suffering from COVID. NOT with patients suffering side effects from the vaccine.

BREAKING: Pope Francis criticizes US bishops who are trying to deny communion to President Biden because Biden believes in separation of church and state: "Bishops must be pastors, not politicians."

This week we unanimously passed a resolution in Harris County welcoming Afghan refugees. The strength of our community comes from diverse people, many of who braved perilous journeys to get here. We're proud to welcome Afghan refugees who will undoubtedly make us stronger.

After six months in hospital, including almost six weeks on a ventilator, and a huge amount of hard work, my father finally goes home today. If you’re still wavering - please get vaccinated. Covid is terrible.

Anonymous political spending snatches power from the American people and hands it off to big donors & corporate interests. It’s the force behind voter suppression, partisan gerrymandering, and the capture of our courts. This was never about freedom, only control.

Her mom was distraught. She was not vaccinated and was also diagnosed with Covid. “I was one of the people that was anti (vaccination), I was against it,” she said. “Now I wish I never was.” Here's the story from the local paper in Galveston. Yes, Texas. galvnews.com/news/free/artic…

Kali Cook, 4 yrs old, hated bows and was funny and sassy. She lived with her parents and older siblings. She attended pre-K classes. This Tuesday, she died in her sleep of COVID. She had never tested positive - underscoring warnings that illness in children can progress rapidly.

And btw, if, like me, you don’t believe Biden has the authority to FORCE private businesses to require their employees get vaxed, then you can’t believe DeSantis & Abbott have the authority to FORBID private businesses from requiring their employees get vaxed.

Raise your hand if you're thankful we have a President who actually cares enough about the lives and safety of Americans to make the tough calls of leadership. ✋
