CDC Promised Free Testing
On March 12, Rep. Katie Porter convinced CDC Director Robert Redfield to commit to use his authority to make coronavirus testing free. Watch this video to see an American leader in action. As of March 23, however, Director Redfield has not delivered on his promise.
“You do the math. You solve one problem, then you solve the next one and then the next and if you solve enough problems you get to come home.”
Storylines are the backdrop on which today’s headlines play out. They are the threads that weave through the political and social battles of the day, often driving strategies for control of the narrative and for influencing public opinion. Whether they are embraced or rejected by prevailing sentiments, the storylines persist as long as we retain faith in the nation’s democratic ideals. It is the ongoing saga of American history that we strive to be better than we are, and that we remember to put our loyalty to the institutions of our democracy ahead of our loyalty to political party or celebrity.
It is why democracy is always a work in progress, and why it is vital that we all remain informed and engaged shareholders in our American experiment. We are our democracy’s citizen CEOs. Tomorrow’s storylines are not yet written; only we control where they go from today forward.
The American Leader will be an oasis, a respite from the 24/7 stream of news, information, and media manipulation that casts the world and its problems in a seemingly endless battle of us-against-them. Our goal is simply to focus on the problems that threaten Americans and their communities, and the people who are acting to bring about solutions through government policies and business activities. Like noise-cancelling headphones, we’ll eliminate the distortions, distractions, evasions, and obfuscations of the news cycle to focus on progress towards problem-solving.
