February 2022: Covid Relief with Resurgence of Delta Variant

In December of 2022, the Delta Variant has spread unchecked due to high rates of the unvaccinated. Within a week 50,000 have tested positive with over 10,000 dead leading to more social distance guidelines. When the pandemic spread across the United States back in 2020, as many as 200,000 businesses were affected and forced to shut down due to strict social distance guidelines. President Biden is calling for the senate to create a federal plan backed by the states. With the new Delta Variant on the rise, what can be done to ensure the safety of public health and the economy? Will midterm elections be enough to create discord?
