@soapboxstand is speaking truth to power, calling out irresponsible appropriation of disaster funding:
Too bad we can’t bomb the virus. We’d spend however much was necessary if that was the fix. But face masks for doctors? Sorry, we can’t afford it! Maybe America needs a humanitarian intervention?
This wasn’t inevitable in the most prosperous country on earth. But, it was inevitable in a system which prioritizes Wall Street over human life and politics over people.
