6:29 am
identify billions of taxpayer funds spent ineffectively, inefficiently, or inequitably, within pandemic relief programs across the federal government. as this sun report shows, and many instances, the management of programs left them particularly vulnerable to waste, fraud, and abuse. the report lays out in detail how the previous administration prioritize politics for public health and a pandemic response. engaging in an unprecedented campaign to undermine federal agencies responsible for protecting americans health and lives.
6:30 am
importantly, the report lays out recommendations to combat the main instances of fraud, abuse, and interference that fled the country's pandemic response. it was shameless he observed, those that cannot room or the past are condemned to repeat it. you must remember the response to the coronavirus crisis so that we do not repeat them in our responses to future crisis. i commend the work of the select subcommittee. over the past two years, and the vital work of this members and staff that worked tirelessly to assume that our country would be better prepared for the next public health emergency. thank you, and i yield back.
6:31 am
is anybody seek recognition? >> mr. chairman? >> mr. jordan. >> we wish to speak on the report. >> you may. >> thank you, mr. chairman. the report is strong on bashing president trump but there's nothing in the report about the cause of the virus, nothing about american tax dollars being spent to china -- being sent to china. nothing about this concern. nothing in the report about what happened at the start. american tax dollars went to a company that was not properly bedded. then sent money to a lab in china that was not up to code. that lab is the place where this virus most likely started. nothing in the report about that. i find that amazing. the select committee on corona
6:32 am
virus, the only select committee on this virus doesn't want to look at how the thing started. nothing in the report about any of that. nothing in the report about governor cuomo's home order. do we know what happened there. the tragedy situation? the tragic things that happened there. nothing in their part about cdc colluding with the teachers union. nothing in the report about the impact of the vaccine mandate on our country, the impact of the vaccine mandate on our military, nothing in the report about that. i will be voting no on this report. i don't think it got to what this committee should have focused on. frankly, i think a lot of americans think the same way. i appreciate the chairman. i will yield back my time.
6:33 am
i need an anonymous consent request if i could? >> are you asking for? >> that all members have two counter days including minorities -- >> mr. jordan, for we get to that. >> thank you, mr. chairman for recognizing me. i wanted to thank you and the committee members for their participation in the subcommittee. particularly for your leadership over the past two and half years. you conducted diligent oversight. that is reflected in this committee's final report. it captures the challenges that our country has faced during the coronavirus pandemic and among the reports, 30 recommendations is that critical investments are needed to address the coronavirus and to prepare for
