Earlier last week, the Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Health revealed that her 95-year-old mother was moved from a nursing home facility into a hotel.
This came at a time when the state government was ordering these facilities to accept patients who tested positive with the Wuhan virus.
This policy was issued on March 18 and specified that retirement homes “must continue to accept new admissions and receive readmissions for current residents who have been discharged from the hospital who are stable,” include residents who have caught the Wuhan virus. The policy was created to “alleviate the increasing burden in the acute care settings.”
The rule may have a played role in creating a significant death toll in the state’s elderly care institutions. The bulk of the deaths in the Keystone State took place in nursing homes, over 2,400 of the state’s approximately 4,000 deaths.
Levine admitted this on May 12, 2020 while talking to Pennsylvania media, declaring that “she and her sister complied with their mother’s request to move from a personal care home to another location,” according to a report from the Allentown Morning Call report.
The admission does raise questions about state health officials being potentially aware of the devastating threat that the Wuhan virus presented to nursing homes even when they ordered said facilities to accept Wuhan virus patients.
Various states have been tackling with Wuhan virus outbreaks at nursing homes. The data show that the Wuhan virus disproportionately hurts older and sicker individuals, two groups that are over-represented at care facilities across the country.
New York State has witnessed significant numbers of care facility deaths during the past several months, which likely caused Governor Andrew Cuomo to rescind the state’s previous directive, which is similar to Pennsylvania’s, that nursing homes would be mandated to accept Wuhan virus patients.
Daniel Payne of Just The News highlighted that “Emails that surfaced last month showed state officials refusing one nursing home’s request to transfer coronavirus patients into emergency care facilities.”
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
