(AmericanProsperity.com) – Ever since the first COVID-19 shutdowns began, Americans have wondered how much longer our nation will be plagued with the virus and the isolation it forced upon us. During his campaign, Joe Biden touted he would do a better job than his predecessor when it came to the virus. Even since the president entered the White House, he’s simply churned out false hope.
Biden Promises WideSpread Vaccine Availability In the Spring
On Monday, January 25, President Biden said he thought the US would be able to provide a vaccine for anyone that wanted one this spring. He also spoke of his hopes to achieve herd immunity by this summer.
While these are high hopes, the states who are actually carrying through with the vaccination plans are less optimistic. Reporter Adam Raymond shares Louisville, Kentucky’s current phase schedule that stretches through the end of the year:

White House Press Secretary Rolls Back Biden’s Words
On Tuesday, January 26, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to pull back on Biden’s words from the previous day. She praised Biden’s lofty goal, but added that “every American is not going to be eligible this spring.”
This correction from Psaki is just one of the many the Biden administration has had to make during its first week of office. Last Friday, Biden said there’s “nothing we can do” to quell the pandemic in the coming months.
Soon after, his nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, corrected his sentiment, stating the pandemic was in a nosedive that must be corrected, which will take some time.
The Pandemic Will End, Just Not Yet
President Biden continues to put the cart before the horse. Meanwhile, we can remain thankful that American ingenuity and the progress of former President Donald Trump’s incredible Operation Warp Speed program have been able to give us vaccines that will, in time, end the COVID-19 pandemic.
