The Disaster Relief Fund (DRF) is expected to run dry this month, during hurricane season. The Biden Administration deliberately chose to ignore several requests for the need to supplement the DRF.

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL) sent a letter to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Deanne Criswell requesting current DRF levels, a plan for when the account runs dry and reasoning behind the lack of response from the Biden Administration.

“The uncertainty resulting from the DRF’s projected shortfall two months into hurricane season is unacceptable. The Biden Administration has been completely silent on the need to act. A deficit to the DRF cannot be ignored and we demand action before a crisis emerges and the American people suffer from the administration’s poor planning.”

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is promoting resources that advise Title X family planning clinics to deliberately leave parents in the dark as their children receive advice on sex, birth control use, pregnancy testing, sexually transmitted diseases, and other important questions about sex and family formation.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and colleagues sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra regarding the Biden Administration’s effort to alienate parents from Title X family planning services for minors.

“Healthy parental involvement is one the most powerful protections for children’s health. More importantly, parents have a right to oversee their children’s development and to be involved in their health decisions. Violating this right is detrimental to children and, in this case, it is against the law.”

There is a shortage of various important drugs throughout the U.S, including commonly used oncology treatments that are critical to beating cancer. Hospitals across the United States have already reduced their usage of these treatments. To combat the shortage, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that the U.S. will import cisplatin, a chemotherapy drug, from Qilu Pharmaceuticals, a Chinese manufacturer. Qilu Pharmaceuticals has not completed safety and efficacy testing of its cisplatin production that is standard for traditional FDA approval in the United States.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent a letter to FDA Commissioner Robert Califf regarding the decision to temporarily import this oncology drug from a Chinese pharmaceutical company. Rubio also requested transparency on the agency’s approval process of this manufacturer.
