“Every health care system is ordering based on worst-case requirements. They may not need it today, or even this week. But when the virus hits their system, it will be too late.

They will use everything they can acquire.”

“Health care workers are the people at the front lines fighting this crisis. You don’t blame them for supply shortage, just like you can’t blame soldiers for running out of bullets in the middle of a war.”

— Bruce Hunter
“Her actions during the stimulus bill hurt Democratic image. Her comments now are not helping in our efforts against the virus.”
— Margie Nelson
