Surprisingly to get into the Supreme Court you must be vaccinated, masked and have a negative test to get admitted. Will rule on mandate from questioning it seems like the Supreme Court will reject the Administrations argument. I other words “screw everyone but us”.

I also read that Medicare is NOT part of this government program. Only private insurance companies.

Totally and completely ridiculous!

So much mis-information spread on Faux news and social media, and people bought into that nonsense. Maybe people finally got it through their heads that the virus is deadly, after over 3/4 of a million people have died.

Fake numbers, fake news. Check out the global mortality rate over the last 4 years. It has stayed consistently at .76%. So much for a contrived global "planned demic". What you should be asking is how many of these lives could have been spared by making Hydroxochloroquine and Ivermectin readily available.

more added nonsense, America is going broke and people just stay on this band wagon. when did you test every time, you had a cough, a runny nose or a body ache.

Well, I was thinking "sheep", but lemmings also fits.

Craziness abounds. I was reading the other day where several states are now allowing COVID-positive workers to remain on their jobs in health care settings if they're showing "no or only mild symptoms". So does someone wanna take a stab at explaining just how firing totally healthy people who refuse to get vaccinated and then allowing people WITH COVID to work around sick and vulnerable people, makes any sense?

Pure fear and control. Nothing is free. Some working person is paying for this.

Bingo!

In Minnesota the media is pleading for people NOT to go to the E.R. or Urgent Care for tests. They're overflowing with people who are NOT sick but who get tested anyway, and apparently repeatedly, for COVID. It has reached the point where legitimately sick people cannot get emergency services.

Ever see a herd of animals panic and run blindly, all in the same direction? Sheep will do that, among other herd animals. They charge blindly toward what they envision as safety.

Apparently human sheep are pretty much the same.

Something to think about when you order a test because you think maybe you might have symptoms.

And then there is this:
Americans on Medicare won’t be eligible for the federal reimbursement plan, though Medicare already covers Covid-19 tests conducted in labs, and Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program plans are already required to fully reimburse the costs of FDA-approved tests.
Biden Requires Insurance Companies To Cover Free At-Home Covid Tests Starting This Weekend

Well, it's not like older people have a need for testing. /S

I had heard a while back that these tests are inconclusive. A close family member got tested twice---1st time was positive and 2nd was negative. NO symptoms!! I agree that unless you have symptoms or need one to travel (which I also think is ludicrous) then go for it. FEAR has been so prevelant these last couple of years it's palpable.
