No Senator should be re-elected. Replace every single one of them with an adult that understands a penny of prevention is worth a dollar in treatment. In this case, ~$7B could have been 20 N95 masks per American. I’ll be shocked if we keep the financial cost under $7T. As far as the cost of lives lost, that price will go unpaid if we allow the same people that failed at their post to remain. 10 years ago experts said that this is coming and preparing isn’t difficult. If one thing had been different, masks. If we all had them from day one we would have saved tens of thousands of lives, thousands of businesses, and incalculable, irreparable damage to our society. If an elected official shows their incompetence or willful ignorance, believe them.
