I think Biden will do a very good job at managing Covid. Of course by the time he takes office the worse will be already be with us. Trump did a few things right and worked at if for about six weeks.FredS wrote: ↑Mon Nov 16, 2020 1:27 pmWell Uncle Joe will put a stop to any good (or bad) decisions being made by governors, mayors, school superintendents, and private employers when gets his national covid team set up. Trump has made a few a lot of mistakes, but leaving local authorities in charge of protecting their people is not one of them. Since the feds approve new drugs and medical procedures, they're rightly in charge of funding and fast tracking medical trials, but pretty much everything else should be driven down as local as possible.
We're tightening up here in CO because it's getting bad, but rural areas in KS don't need or deserve the same sort of restrictions we do. The devil's in the details and the details shouldn't be implemented from Washington, but I expect Jo will presume the people have given him a mandate to "fix this deal that Trump messed up".
Biden will have a national plan, sure enough, it will look a like like California or Colorado’s plan. There will still be room for local input and local regulations in addition to federal action. High time too! I do not believe that a pandemic is something to leave to the states alone. For that matter, this pandemic is a global crisis begging for global action.
