Biden Calls On Republicans To Help End Pandemic

President Biden is now calling on lawmakers, especially Republicans, to do more to help end the pandemic.

He says lawmakers either need to help or get out of the way of people trying to do the right thing.

The Delta variant is fueling a summer surge of cases and hitting states with the lowest vaccination rates the hardest. Florida is one of those states.

During a news conference on Tuesday, Biden called out Florida Governor Ron Desantis for not taking action to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Desantis says it’s up to individual Floridians to decide whether to wear masks or get vaccinated.
