Why can't we just license a test kit that we know works from another country?? Manufacture here?

Somebody else has already made one.
Why do we have to re-invent the wheel with Trumps Dismantled CDC?

We could even call them the Trump Corona test kits.
He likes to license and brand brand with his name right?

1. It won't matter as long as they are controlling who and

how often people are tested.

3. You know that this is probably the truth of the whole matter, that business profits are going to...

drive the CV responses from this administration.

Another domino that will fall hard when things get rough over the next month or so, when the full impact of CV becomes more clear, and the steps that this admin. took (priority over preserving/creating profits VS. need to save lives) will doom further this administration and its blatant support of the business world and its god, money.

4. Nope, he actively wants us sick.

He hates working class and poor and thinks he can keep the testing small so he personally profits and nothing that doesn't personally profit him happens. He is having CDC control and deny kits most of the time so they don't run out of the few kits they have. He is personally responsible for firing the pandemic task force in 2018 so there is no structure in place. If there is a pandemic, he can fire Pence and call a national emergency and cancel the elections.

5. He can't cancel the election.

Elections are run by the individual states and even Republican-run states would give him the middle finger if he tried to get them to cancel.

7. There are lots of things that are illegal as hell that he does every day with repug approval.

If things get bad and there is the chaos he's trying to create - watch him and watch the supine Russian Repug SCOTUS go along with it.
Repug governors won't have a say if he sends out troops to "secure" voting places.

10. Well, right now global commerce is running kind of slow...

so that might not be the best idea.

Many bigger cities have universities close by with the capability. Most larger university medical centers could devise a test pretty easily, I would think. That would take care of the blue cities, maybe the red rural areas could just pray it away.

(sorry for the snarky end, there, I'm feeling pretty pissy towards Repubs in general today)

11. Trump needs to keep the numbers low.

The only way to do that is not test.
