Cheap uggs saleTrump first announced he would declare a national emergency in August, and his event Thursday was characterized by critics as too little, too late.
“America is hemorrhaging lives by the day because of the opioid epidemic, but President Trump offered the country a Band-Aid when we need a tourniquet,” said Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.). “Today’s announcement is nothing more than a dog-and-pony show in an attempt to demonstrate the Trump administration is not ignoring this crisis.”
Markey lambasted Trump for not requesting emergency funding from Congress and for indicating he would reallocate money from other programs. Markey was among the sponsors of a bill introduced this week that would direct $45 billion in new money toward prevention and treatment related to opioids.
Even some Republican lawmakers,Cheap Uggs Boots Canada tmtop 100, including Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), who praised Trump for “a significant step forward,” acknowledged that more money is essential. “Of course, the president’s action is just part of what must be a larger and broader national effort,” Capito said, adding that she would “continue pushing and advocating for much-needed resources.”
The presidential memorandum signed by Trump on Thursday orders Eric Hargan, the acting secretary of health and human services, to declare a nationwide public health emergency and direct all federal agencies to use any emergency authorities that they have to reduce the number of opioid overdose deaths. The last time that a national public health emergency of this scope was called was in 2009 in response to the H1N1 influenza virus. The emergency status will last 90 days but can be repeatedly renewed.
Shortly after Trump’s event, Hargan said he had declared the emergency and noted that in the current fiscal year his department has invested nearly $900 million in “opioid-specific funding” to support the efforts of state and local governments and others.
