      I think they need to label the products with country of origin.

          Big pharma squealing bc they've invested heavily and cheap shyt from Chiiiiina?

          Im so surprised.

          once this is over, tariffs baby, tariffs!

          and extensive testing to ensure that this Chinese shtt meats quality standards.

          it's worth paying a little more to have American production (in case of war or emergency) and American jobs.

            If this "Pandemic" has taught us anything it is we need to diversify supply of essential manufacturing...

            AND we at least need a significant capability to produce these goods and/or RAMP UP in the USA.

            Funding should have been tied to this.

            Furthermore: When this is over...We should stock-pile a "Strategic Medical Reserve" similar the "Strategic Oil Reserve" This will happen again.

              yeah. hard to make more masks (or ventilators) when we don't make any masks or have production capability to make anything.

              The My Pillow owner...Mike? Is now making Masks and medical supplies.

              Ford, GM, and Fiat/Chrysler are making ventilators. TRUMP has to cut the regulations.

                  Screw those bastards. They aren't interested in curing anything. They are interested in lifelong customers and big profits, at the expense of an entire nation.

                  I have nothing against profit, but we simply cannot trust our vital manufacturing to the freaking chinks.

                          Find the **** available now, you know the military has an agency just for that DLA.......

                          then, my life rant, you’re not **** if you don’t make ****.... manufacturing, ranching, farming, control your supply chain. Kind of national security, no? Corporate shareholder greed sold jobs for stock price... some union greed didn’t help....

                          all the griping about regulations isn’t the problem it is cheap government controlled labor and prices
