Governor Tom Wolf, Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman, Second Lady Gisele Fetterman and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine visited the York County YMCA to announce the findings of the Wolf Administration’s COVID-19 Response Task Force for Health Disparity. The task force, created in April to investigate issues with how the pandemic is affecting the state’s minority and vulnerable populations, has compiled recommendations for steps the commonwealth can take to reduce health disparities and work to dismantle systemic racism.

Via TTN:

The Washington Post Editorial Board is calling on Lt. Gov. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania (D) to release his medical records and to hold multiple debates with his Republican opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz.

The move came after Fetterman suffered a stroke and confessed to a heart condition he refused to disclose until recently, saying he “almost died” because of it.

The Washington Post’s editorial reads:

The campaign’s response to questions about Mr. Fetterman’s health is to point to a doctor’s note, released more than 14 weeks ago, which said ‘he should be able to campaign and serve in the U.S. Senate without a problem’ if he takes his medications and exercises.

That’s not good enough. Mr. Fetterman is asking voters for a six-year contract without giving them enough information to make sound judgments about whether he’s up for such a demanding job. We have called for full disclosure of health records from candidates for federal office in both parties, including Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and we believe Mr. Fetterman should release his medical records for independent review.

Breitbart notes:

Additionally, the editorial board is pressuring Fetterman to engage in more than one debate with Oz, noting that at least one matchup should be “before voters start casting their ballots.”

The op-ed comes after Fetterman, facing criticism from local and national media and his opponent, told Politico last week that he would debate Oz “sometime in the middle to end of October” but provided no specific details. This is well after mail-in voting begins on September 19.

“There is no Fetterman debate offer,” Oz told Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday over the weekend. “He conceptually agreed that you know, he’d show up at some point, but a debate has to be held at a specific time, a specific place, got to be on TV stations. You have to have a host. He’s given us none of those details,” Oz explained. 

The op-ed follows a similar piece from Marc Thiessen, a Post columnist and former speechwriter for former President George W. Bush, who on Friday, called for Fetterman to debate before mail-in voting begins.

This is, in itself, amazing. I would have never expected the WaPo to call out any liberal socialist.
But, miracles can happen.

If you join the armed forces you must pass a physical. Serving in the government should be no different. This is not discrimination it’s common sense. Many private sector companies require physicals. Nuff’said.

The reason why all these evil things are going on in our country is because the American people are cowards. That is why all these evil people are doing all these evil things because they know no one is going to do anything to stop them because all are cowards. That is the whole sad fact of the matter and is why whatever happens America deserves what happens to them because we should have settled this a long time ago instead of being cowards who just complain and don’t do anything effective.
