You know they will tell us we need to pay more for a new system ?

I've been ordering from only local businesses to keep them going....are others doing that too?
I dont follow or listen to this station so I’ve no idea of usual stance.. but today I tuned in & called to respond to a question regarding Use of Protective Masks for All & was cut off before I finished my response ( I believe because I opined that the CDC would have likely recommend MASKS for all two wks ago HAD our Leaders not shipped 17 TONS of Protective Sypplies ( Masks Respirators, Gloves ) to China AFTER US had already confirmed Infection ( Coronavirus) here !! Senators & CDC warned Mr Trump of impending risks... Our President admitted that Hehad a good feeling about this virus that all would be fine & we were way ahead of it, under control, prepared for anything ( supplies & tests). my orher point ( but cut off) is answering his question as to why so many ignore the Experts Medical Advice ( CDC etc) & think they know more ..... Well... it’s because this is exactly what the President DID & this cavalier attitude has damaged our ability to gain control over this infection
