DeSANTIS DESTROYS BIDEN ON MONOCLONAL PIVOT: ‘Haphazard Decision, Will Cost American Lives’ 

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.25.22

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is furious after the Biden Administration has changed its protocols for life-saving monoclonal antibody treatments, canceling more than 2,000 treatment appointments for Floridians in the process.

According to a press release from DeSantis’ office, the Governor is demanding the Biden Administration “reverse its sudden and reckless decision to revoke emergency use authorization (EUA) for Regeneron and Eli Lilly monoclonal antibody treatments.” 

“This abrupt and unilateral action by the Biden Administration will prevent access to lifesaving treatments for Floridians and Americans.”

“Without a shred of clinical data to support this action, Biden has forced trained medical professionals to choose between treating their patients or breaking the law,” says DeSantis. “This indefensible edict takes treatment out of the hands of medical professionals and will cost some Americans their lives. There are real-world implications to Biden’s medical authoritarianism – Americans’ access to treatments is now subject to the whims of a failing president.”

“Rather than giving Americans the option for various COVID treatments, the FDA and the Biden Administration issued their royal decree, taking away the very thing that is proven to reduce hospitalizations and save lives,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. “Monoclonal antibody treatments like Regeneron have had a positive impact for thousands of Floridians. For the CDC and FDA, which have been consistently inconsistent throughout the entire pandemic, to restrict treatment does nothing but put individuals at risk.”

“As a result of this abrupt and clinically unsupported action, the appointments for more than 2,000 Floridians to receive this treatment were canceled on January 25, 2022, alone. This decision was made solely by Biden’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) without advance warning to states or health providers and without clinical data to support the decision. The deliberate decision by the Biden Administration to make this announcement effective immediately, through a press release, actively prevents states and health care providers from making real-time operational decisions that save lives.”

DeSantis shared the news, and the press release, on Twitter:

“Floridians have benefited from the state’s treatment sites and their access to treatment shouldn’t be denied based on the whims of a floundering president.”
