The bill, known as the HEROES Act, is the opening entry from House Democrats in what will certainly be a highly partisan fight over the contents of the 5th piece of federal COVID-19 relief legislation, which emerges at a time when The White House has shifted its focus from the health of US citizens to the health of the US economy, all but abdicating its responsibility for monitoring testing and treatment of the virus to the states.

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back: Trump Budget Adds HIV Funding While Slashing Safety Net Programs
