This administration did not fail to enact a strategy; they actively prevented its implementation. This is not passive incompetence, it is proactive malice toward Americans. Could there be a more basic violation and abandonment of consitutional duty? #VOTE nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus…

The Trump administration doesn’t see “the workforce” as equals worthy of rights. Just read Atlas’ latest agenda-driven BS: (ht @JeremyKonyndyk) nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus… pic.twitter.com/7Ep7e58h9F

this article doesn't spell it out, but Atlas's insistence on only testing the "vulnerable" is key to the Great Barrington Declaration. nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus… see this op-ed by two of its authors, "The Case Against COVID Tests for the Young and Healthy": wsj.com/amp/articles/t… pic.twitter.com/cC3tEqbigl

Yet again we are hearing of White House opposition to expand #COVID19 testing for fear it will identify more cases. The thing is, you can't hide from the pandemic by not testing. Rising test positivity will provide clear evidence that we are undertesting. nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus…

📍ATLAS SHRUGGED & PEOPLE DIED. Trump’s WH pandemic advisor Scott Atlas arm-twisted CDC to say no need to test asymptomatic people for #COVID19 *even if exposed to virus*—angering Drs. Birx & Redfield. Atlas now tied with Miller for worst Trump advisor. 🧵nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus… pic.twitter.com/e9EJXYBrs8

This article is unbelievable. Here is our federal testing "strategy". Not only have thousands of people unnecessarily died because of this insanity, but it's also why we can't return to normal and why millions of Americans remain unemployed. nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus… pic.twitter.com/UTJsb1dSDb

“⁦@WhiteHouse⁩ Opposes Expanded Coronavirus Testing” via @Nytimes. How is this possible? Testing is key to identifying infection, without which we cannot find outbreaks. Testing doesn’t create #covid19, but is key to controlling it. nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus…

White House Opposes Expanded Coronavirus Testing, Complicating Stimulus Talks - ⁦@nytimes⁩ Scott Atlas knows NOTHING about public health of infectious diseases. It is terrifying that he is advising the President on issues he is ignorant about. nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus…

The President has no plans to expand testing for #COVID19. He has no plans to stop the virus, depending on “herd immunity” instead. He has no plans for passing a COVID-19 relief bill. He has no plans, period. It’s time to vote him out. #AFTvotes  nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus…
