Biden is wrong. These milestones still mark our national mourning. Passing the 500k death toll should be not just noted, but lamented and regretted. Each milestone marks a failure of our government and our health care system. Many of the deaths that contributed to passing those milestones could have been prevented by a better health care system, meaning Medicare for All. It seems rather callous to somehow repudiate or deny the significance of the people who died for whatever reason. And there doesn’t seem to be a reason. Kindly Uncle Joe is not looking so kindly.
