Remember back in the spring when Biden said if you get vaccinated, you no longer need a mask? And remember when he said that if Americans got vaccinated we could have a normal July 4th? The point is that he keeps moving the goal posts.
Now he has done it once again, and in a big way.
He was asked when life can go back to normal and he set an almost impossibly high bar.
The Federalist reports:
Biden All But Admits He’s Never Letting The U.S. Return To A Pre-COVID Normal
President Joe Biden indicated that it will take 97 to 98 percent of Americans receiving the COVID-19 jab before he lets the nation move on from the pandemic. The moment came during a White House event on Monday, where the president was receiving his COVID-19 booster shot.
“I think we get the vast majority … 97 percent, 98 percent. I think we’ll get awful close,” he said. “But I’m not the scientist. I think one thing is for certain. A quarter of the country can’t go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem.”
The president later went on to note that the U.S. will continue funding efforts to expand global COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
“We’re doing more than every other nation in the world combined. We’re going to have well over billion, one million shots,” Biden said. “We’ll continue going. We’ll do our part. We’ve also given a great deal of funding to COVAX, which is the vehicle that does this, so we have plenty, plenty of opportunities to make sure we get everyone in the world. We played our part, the largest part in the world, of getting everyone vaccinated.”

There are some Democrats who never want life to go back to normal.
It looks like Biden is one of them.
