During a Senate hearing this Wednesday, Sen. Robert Casey Jr. (D-PA) tore into Republicans and President Trump as America reached the "grim milestone" of 200,000 dead from coronavirus, saying the the virus could possibly be considered a pre-existing condition "just as the Affordable Care Act could be struck down by the Supreme Court in early November."
According to the Senator, the Trump administration has "no effective strategy" to the reduce the number of senior citizens dying in nursing homes from the virus.
"This is an American tragedy," Casey said. "There's no excuse for these numbers to keep going up."
"Now, the majority in the Senate could be doing something about this," he continued. "The majority in the Senate has been obsessed with confirmation votes, all kinds of confirmation votes all summer long ... now the Senate majority is obsessed with getting a confirmation vote on the Supreme Court justice. I just have one question for the majority: when will Senate Republicans and the Trump administration become obsessed -- yes, obsessed -- with reducing nursing home deaths?"
