REP. CHENEY: Thank you very much, everyone, for joining us today. A couple of issues that we want to address. First of all, on coronavirus, every day we’re learning more about the threat that this virus poses. It’s very important for everyone to understand that we are united. This is not a partisan issue. We believe, the House Republicans, certainly, that we have a duty to make sure that the nation is prepared. Our nation has more resources than any other nation in the world to be able to address whatever threat coronavirus poses, but it’s going to require bipartisan action. This is not a time for partisanship. Pathogens do not respect party lines and it’s very important for all of us to come together and to work together to make sure we’re prepared. I think we have a duty to do that – it’s a patriotic duty. We do have the very best infrastructure in the world, we have the very best ability to innovate, the very best ability to develop whatever responses are necessary, but it has to happen on a bipartisan basis. I think it’s absolutely clear as House Republicans that we’re going to be prepared to stand behind and support whatever resources are necessary for this, to work closely with the President, to work across the aisle with our Democratic colleagues, and we would urge our Democratic colleagues to do the same.
