Despite Biden proudly proclaiming that the ‘pandemic’ was over earlier this year, his administration has now extended the Covid-19 ’emergency’ order.
The order, originally set to expire on January 11th, has been extended into April of 2023.
Conservative pundits point to the massive power that mail-in voting schemes provide to Democrats as the sole reason for continuing with the Covid-19 health ’emergency’.
Officially, the reason given is that the federal government needs time to offload the management of the Covid-19 virus to the private sector…
It remains to be seen if the Biden administration will attempt to continue the emergency policies into 2024 and the 2024 Presidential election.
Responses to the continued policies were overwhelmingly negative:
BREAKING: The Biden administration is extending the COVID-19 “public health emergency” until April 2023, despite Biden’s statement in September that “the pandemic is over.”
This administration doesn’t want to relinquish power over our lives.
Enough is enough.

This just in: The Biden administration is extending the COVID-19 "public health emergency" until at least April.
This is not about "public health." This is about blue states keeping the mass mail-in ballots for 2024.

According to Washington Examiner:
The public health emergency, which was set to expire on Jan. 11, will remain in place through the first quarter of 2022 to allow the government more time to offload responsibility for COVID-19 vaccines, tests, antiviral treatment, and other COVID-19 pharmaceuticals to the private sector.
The COVID-19 "public health emergency" is set to expire on January 11, 2023. The Biden administration will extend the "emergency" AGAIN until at least April.
They will never give up their emergency powers willingly. Oldest trick in the government playbook.

"Biden to Extend COVID-19 Health Emergency Through April 2023"
The official reason? The plan to transition from public to private responsibilities hasn't been "formalized" yet. The *real* reason? They don't want to give up the power they have through this.https://t.co/rSJjOFDjQu

The public health emergency, first declared in January 2020 and renewed every 90 days since, has had a vast impact on the U.S. health-care system.
The declaration has dramatically expanded public health insurance through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Enrollment in these programs increased 26% during the pandemic to a record of more than 89 million people as of June.
