Yes, friends, the dementia-addled sock puppet occupying the White House reversed President Trump’s order lowering the cost of a variety of prescription medicines on Friday, including some that are crucial to millions suffering from diabetes and allergic reactions. This from the party that claims to be the advocate for healthcare in America.
From a story at Daily Wire:
President Joe Biden’s United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Thursday stopped executive orders from his predecessor designed to significantly lower prescription drug prices for Americans, including insulin and epinephrine.
The new administration will apparently re-evaluate the executive action from President Donald Trump toward the end of March. It remains unclear if it will be reinstated.
“The HHS Thursday froze the former Trump administration’s December drug policy that requires community health centers to pass on all their insulin and epinephrine discount savings to patients,” Bloomberg Law reported Thursday. “Centers that don’t pass on the savings wouldn’t qualify for federal grants.”
“This freeze is part of the Biden administration’s large-scale effort announced this week that will scrutinize the Trump administration’s health policies,” the report noted. “If the previous administration’s policies raise ‘fact, law, or policy’ concerns, the Biden HHS will delay them and consult with the Office of Management and Budget about other actions.”
A report for Bloomberg Government said the Biden administration is on a “different page” about curbing drug prices than the Trump administration, noting of the Biden team awaiting “at least a dozen lawsuits … over Trump-era moves to lower drug prices”:[End]
If you’re one of the dimwits who voted for Biden expecting a man who has been in government for half a century without ever making anything better for the American people to somehow now suddenly start making things better, you are the problem. Frankly, you deserve whatever misery he throws your way. But the millions of other Americans who aren’t complicit in this farce don’t deserve it, and that’s on you, too.
Remember this incident, in which Biden told a union factory worker that “I don’t work for you!”? Well, what part of that did you nitwits not understand?
Democrat voters have no idea what it is they’re voting far, Part II – The people of New Mexico are suddenly all verklempt today after the Swamp’s designated Sock Puppet signed an order last week imposing a senseless 60-day moratorium on new leasing on federal lands and waters in the United States. Seems that those New Mexico dimwit voters didn’t realize that about half of the oil and gas production in their state that pays for about half of their state government each year is produced from … wait for it … federal lands, and their state is now facing a big budget gap that will only grow larger thanks to China Joe’s demented act.
Hey, New Mexico, you voted for this. You get what you vote for. In this case, thousands and thousands of people will be out of a job. Biden's pause on oil cause for big concern in New Mexico #BetYouMissTrumpNow https://t.co/Kf2wewxUOv

From a story at Fox Business:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — President Joe Biden’s 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits is prompting widespread concerns in New Mexico, where spending on education and other public programs hinges on the industry’s success.
Top Republicans in the state as well as local leaders in communities that border the Permian Basin — one of the most productive regions in the U.S. — say any moves to make permanent the suspension would be economically devastating for the state. Half of New Mexico’s production happens on federal land and amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties each year.
Congressional members from other western states also are raising concerns, saying the ripple effects of the moratorium will hurt small businesses already struggling because of the pandemic.
“During his inauguration, President Biden spoke about bringing our nation together. Eliminating drilling on public lands will cost thousands of New Mexicans their jobs and destroy what’s left of our state’s economy,” Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway told The Associated Press on Friday. “How does that bring us together? Environmental efforts should be fair and well-researched, not knee-jerk mandates that just hurt an already impoverished state.”
Steve Pearce, chairman of the state Republican Party, said drilling was beginning to pick up in New Mexico’s share of the Permian Basin because of rising oil prices. But he said he’s concerned that activity could evaporate.
“I think we’re going to see companies choosing not to invest in New Mexico and take their jobs and drilling to Texas just 3 miles away,” Pearce said. “They can just scoot across the border where they don’t have federal lands.”
Chairman Pearce, a former GOP member of congress, hits on a key part of this story that New Mexico Democrat politicians like to ignore: Texas is right next door, and Texas isn’t held hostage by half of the state being owned by the feds. The Permian Basin is a massive geographic area almost as large as the entire state of Wyoming, about 3/4ths of which lies on the Texas size of the border. The impact of Biden’s moratorium on federal leasing and his coming ban on fracking on federal lands will almost certainly result in companies focusing on drilling wells in Texas and reducing their activity in New Mexico.
Whether they realized it or not, this is what New Mexicans voted for when they went 55% for China Joe. After all, it wasn’t as if he and Kamala Harris made any secret about their intentions during the campaign. As is always the case with Democrats, they always telegraph exactly what they plan to do to you – all you have to do is pay attention to exactly what they say.
New Mexicans didn’t pay attention, and so the schools and hospitals and all sorts of programs oil and gas revenues have been delivering to them will suffer, and so will the people. Biden’s attitude about it all? “I don’t work for you.”
That is all.
