We’ve got to bring manufacturing home

Governor Andrew Cuomo of N.Y. has just ordered 125,000 ventilators from China at a cost of $25,000 each.

I do not quarrel with what may have been necessity. However, considering the actions of that government in arresting and disappearing several prominent Chinese doctors who tried to warn the world about coronavirus, any American of average intelligence has to ask “How did it come to this?”

The answer is simple: big business transferred our manufacturing to China to make higher profits, and politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, were their enablers.

The day of reckoning has come. Americans, for our national survival, must reclaim our manufacturing supply chains, especially those of medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, or the consequences will be dire.
