If I were in charge of a process this stupid while people were dying, I’d cut out the middle man. But, you know, that’s me.
This is so important for everyone to understand. This explains why Governors say: I'm not getting the supplies I need - yet @President Trump says we are sending tons of supplies: It's going from the federal govt to commercial distributors who then deliver to the highest bidder: states!
This may be close to the scariest thing he has done yet. All Presidents have respected the impt role and the independence of th Inspectors General. But not him. He has not filled many vacant IG positions and has now created another vacancy solely on basis of personal politics.
I talked to the guy who decided to cut funding for the national stockpile 9 years ago. He said there was no way to predict an emergency like this. Except the cut came right after swine flu, which is why the CDC was asking for an increase. https://www.propublica.org/article/us-emergency-medical-stockpile-funding-unprepared-coronavirus
Our Governor is ignoring doctors and nurses and business leaders. Who the hell is he listening to? #AskGovParson
Not sure why this makes me so angry. But it does.
Quit trying to rewrite your gross incompetence.
