What’s interesting is that the current right wing effort to discredit Fauci, which no doubt is the source of these clips, is ultimately motivated by a concern that he’s championing too strong a reaction.
The effort aligns his position more closely to Mr Trump’s
@mark YEAH, so the federal government should pull them out of their ass... Tada, magic ass ventilators... Don’t hand me that bull. There’s been no one on this forum more against wasteful government spending and taxation than you. And having 30K ventilators in the national stockpile would have seemed wasteful. Hell, it still does
There's a lot of TADA! wishful hindsight among many people who know how government works, and are projecting some alternate reality about how fast government can move within our federal system.
Shucks, Hitler and Stalin bitched about people in their government not moving or producing fast enough...And they executed people to help speed things along...
I think there’s much we could do in the direction of his medical response. If not actually go as far as he says.
It might just be that China does something akin to what he’s suggesting for vaccine testing and will be rolling out a global solution while the FDA are still filling out all their forms.
I've said this before, but the FDA is laboring under antiquated laws mandating near-perfection. Yep, we change things and we may get another thalidomide debacle, but I'll trade those problems for some nimbleness and common sense.
