Trump Admin incompetence makes almost 3,000 ventilators useless

WASHINGTON — President Trump has repeatedly assured Americans that the federal government is holding 10,000 ventilators in reserve to ship to the hardest-hit hospitals around the nation as they struggle to keep the most critically ill patients alive.

But what federal officials have neglected to mention is that an additional 2,109 lifesaving devices are unavailable after the contract to maintain the government’s stockpile lapsed late last summer, and a contracting dispute meant that a new firm did not begin its work until late January. By then, the coronavirus crisis was already underway.

Doesn't surprise me in the least..Trump's view of the minutiae of the things government oversees is that all these people are sitting at desks doing nothing, departments that appear to be doing nothing must be doing nothing, they aren't making headlines..he's never heard of this before..that's the basis for eliminating all these people and departments and programs..because 'he thinks'..and therein lies the danger.

Obama's fault for not having long enough contracts.
