The Biden Administration cut the necessary amount of monoclonal treatments that Florida needed to complete their life-saving program. Gov DeSantis announced in early September a new program in Florida that was to make monoclonal antibody treatments available to Floridians – but in a new move, the Democrat-controlled administration cut the amount of treatments that Florida would receive. Other red states: Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, and Louisiana, will also be shorted. They will now get less than half of the amount they need because HHS says those states take up ”too big a share.” Is this revenge? This is exactly why the Federal government should not be in control of your health.
UPDATE: According to the Daily Wire, DeSantis called GlaxoSmithKline and plans to order the Monoclonal treatments directly from the pharmaceutical company.

If they will not help, if those governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way,Joe Biden
Is he getting DeSantis and red state governors “out of the way” by shorting their states of life-saving medicines? A week ago, the HHS stated that they were upping their distribution of doses of the treatment by 50%, which was great news for states that are struggling with full hospitals. But suddenly they backtracked and now the Biden administration cut the amount of doses to be more “equitable.” The move stinks of politics.
“HHS will determine the amount of product each state and territory receives on a weekly basis,” a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said…
Already, this has had a negative impact on states such as Florida, where Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has been announcing more and more antibody treatment centers across the Sunshine State and battling the establishment media’s criticisms and misinformation along the way. Even Dr. Anthony Fauci has recognized the treatments as “effective intervention” for the Chinese coronavirus.
As a result of the Biden administration’s moves, the feds delivered less than half the needed doses to the Sunshine State this week. According to CBS12, they sent 30,950 doses “according to numbers from the governor’s office and confirmed by the Department of Health.” But normally, the state needs about 72,000 doses a week to meet the needs.Breitbart
Florida isn’t the only state squeezed by the new policy: Alabama’s Medical Association was extremely upset by the announcement.
Alabama’s hospitals are full and under tremendous stress. That’s why physicians are very concerned about federal efforts that will end up limiting our supply and access to this effective treatment,” Dr. Aruna Arora, the association’s president, said in a statement Monday.
“We’re calling on the federal government to help us provide more of this treatment – not less – so we can save lives and keep COVID patients out of the hospital.”Fox
The Biden administration cut the supply of the life-saving medicine to states that need it. Is the Biden administration- or Joe Biden himself using withholding medications to people because of of an egotistical personal vendetta? If so, there is an even worse problem in the White House than we thought.
Christina Pushaw, press secretary for DeSantis, blasted the Biden administration’s move and suggested that “every corporate media outlet that publishes sensational stories about ‘overflowing hospitals’ in the South” should first “demand answers from the Biden Administration about why they’re restricting the supply of life saving COVID treatment to the South.”
Supply of monoclonal antibody treatment to Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas & other Southern states restricted by Biden Admin with no real explanation besides ‘equity,’” she continued, asking, “How is it equitable to only send treatment for HALF the Floridians who need it, & NO state sites in Alabama?”Breitbart
