THREAD: We are at a tipping point in the midst of this global pandemic and we need the President to act.
President Trump’s refusal to use the Defense Production Act to address the dire shortage of much-needed emergency medical equipment is putting lives in our district and across the country at risk.…
The law allows the federal government, in times of crisis, to coordinate the manufacturing of essential, life-saving items. Companies in our region who are eager to step up and produce these materials, but w/o guidance from the WH, their hands are tied lives hang in the balance.
This is not a time for placing blame or shirking responsibility. The scope of this pandemic, and its potential impact upon Americans, is too immediate and life threatening to await a voluntary response from the corporate sector.
I urge President Trump to use his authority under the law to coordinate the national effort we need to overcome this challenge, save lives, and protect the vulnerable who are at greatest risk. We don’t have a moment to wait.
