Senator Kaine: We need over one million tests per day by fall.

Right now we are doing 250,000 per day. The admiral (forgot his name) who works for Trump and kisses his ass every day said that will happen, IF it is necessary.

1. They dont want to save lives, they want us gone.

GOP which supports rump, whatever percentage that is, wants us gone, dead or deported they dont care which.

Their SC wont obey the law and demand we see his taxes, because 5 of them are fascist traitors.

William Barr believes Jesus sent rump here and that no law is to apply to him, for real he believes this.

2. 4x increase needs a plan

Saying that we could do it with no detail is meaningless. It adds zero new information.

How long would it take to ramp up production by 4x? Have we identified which manufacturers have capacity that could be reconfigured and how long that will take?

How long from pulling the trigger to getting to 4x.

Same set of questions for labs and other materials to process the tests.

Statements like this are meaningless.

3. What specific tests?

How accurate are they?

Not only did the FDA allow companies to market whatever the fuck they wanted to market as a test without bothering to check that any of them were even remotely worthwhile, the very best ones seem to have something like a 30% false positive and a 30% false negative. Which makes them only a little better than flipping a coin. Or flipping it for two out of three.
