No matter the mask you still got to feel good and chastise your fellow citizens, all that truly matters.

I for one can say I was ripped off by a "local" Maine company when I ordered several masks online. There was no communication on their end when my masks would arrive unless I pestered them. When my masks arrived they were literally cut in an uneven pattern and did not even have basic stitching in some areas! I will be getting a refund. I was lucky to have a neighbor that made solid masks that were superior to this clothing manufacturer.

MA and other states were driven to desperate searches for PPE because not only did the feds refuse to help provide it, they set up bidding wars and then swooped in to buy equipment themselves to mete out to the administration's favorites. When states that were out of favor did manage to purchase equipment, the feds often swooped in and grabbed it at the last minute.

That's why MA was driven to steps like the Patriot's plane. And the reason for giving money up front was because very often the deals wouldn't go through if the states or hospitals insisted on not paying until delivery. Has everyone forgotten the stories of hospitals losing out on purchases because they couldn't provide cash on demand?

Ah, "the feds refuse to help provide it", is the new "it's not my job".

part of the reason for Donald Trump's ascension into the Oval Office in the first place is because Barack Obama, unfortunately, was not that great a president, and Hilary Clinton was neither a good Secretary of States, or a good presidential Candidate.

Her job had nothing to do with the states in the US.

She was Secretary of State ... and only for four years of Obama's tenure.

This is just like the opioid crisis. It's everyone else's fault. The government and the health care industry at all levels were unprepared and slow to react. Lots of targets for the brush of blame here.
