The Obama administration repeatedly sought to cut hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), yearly budget requests show — seemingly undercutting former Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated attacks on the Trump White House for its pandemic preparedness.

Numerous Democrats, including Biden, have falsely claimed that Trump slashed the CDC budget, and Biden has suggested that he would never pursue similar cuts. The Associated Press has noted that those claims “distort” the facts, with FactCheck.org pointing out that CDC funding has actually increased under the current administration, largely because Congress insisted on maintaining funding levels for both CDC and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The article goes on to state the following:

Nevertheless, speaking to ABC News’ “This Week” on March 1, Biden claimed: “They’ve cut the funding for the CDC.” On Friday, Biden stepped up his attacks, writing on Twitter: “Donald Trump’s careless, shortsighted actions left our nation ill-prepared and now Americans are paying the price.”

The Fox News report reveals that the Obama administration sought CDC cuts in five of its eight years, with some of the administration’s cuts specifically targeted at the CDC’s preparedness initiatives.

The report further states:

In its fiscal year 2013 budget, while Biden was vice president, the Obama administration sought a total funding level of $5.9 billion from the CDC, or a $569 million cut from the 2012 budget of $6.46 billion. In fiscal year 2015, the Obama administration wanted a $414 million cut year-over-year, and again in the fiscal year 2017 budget, the Obama administration looked to eliminate $251 million in CDC funding.

Biden has continued to blamed the current situation on President Trump:

    Ya know Joe, we don’t have problem with any administration trying to save money and doing the right fiscal thing. It’s the ignoring and lying about your actions and then even worse your attacking BS!!

    The real sad part is the number of people who buy into the spoon fed Soros & Friends crap just cause they have a piece of paper that says they are a democrat; ya know people you can vote for the best most qualified. You have brains in your God given body that allows you the ‘choice’ you preach about all the time! Try exercising it and not just checking the party line vote 🙂
