Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) stated on Sunday that claims the FDA’s approval of the abortion medication mifepristone will be disrupted by the judge’s decision to halt the approval process temporarily were unfounded.
In an interview on Sunday, the Louisiana Republican stated that the FDA should be held to the same legal standards as everyone else. In theory, all government agencies must adhere to the Administrative Procedure Act, but in practice, this agency is free to disregard this law if it so chooses. That, according to Cassidy, is very worrying.
It’s a stretch to call pregnancy sickness, and it’s known what happens to the unborn infant, so it’s unclear why the faster drug approval pathway would be appropriate in this case, as pointed out by Cassidy.
He added that he had faith in state courts to resolve abortion cases fairly.
Cassidy asserted that Louisiana is a pro-life state with laws that are more protective of the unborn than those in California. However, if California and Louisiana stick to their respective laws, the result will be the same nationally.
Meanwhile, the senator has stated his support for the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Cassidy believes that Dobbs represents the uneasy compromise where individuals will be forced to face the reality that there are many points of view and that no one group can impose its will on the other. Therefore, selecting Dobbs was the right move.
Cassidy was questioned about the conflict over Social Security budget cuts. When the fund becomes insolvent in roughly 8 or 9 years, the senator claimed, President Joe Biden plans to do nothing and allow a 24% decrease in payouts.
He stated things are more complicated since the President has opted to insist there is no issue, even though every actuary who has looked into this has reached the same conclusion. As things stand, those who receive this after turning 80 face a reduction of 24 percent of their benefits, which is a significant hardship given how irresponsible many are.
Instead, according to Cassidy, he supports a plan to establish a fund apart from Social Security that would allow $1.5 trillion to be invested in the economy.
According to Cassidy, the recipient takes no risk, and no money from Social Security is transferred to this account. It must be allowed to accumulate, as this will ultimately ensure the long-term viability of Social Security. The fund bears every possible risk.
Cassidy remarked that Biden was demagoguery of the proposal. In addition to honesty, Americans need a great concept to fix 75% of the problem.
