The Capitol's attending physician said Thursday that coronavirus tests will be available for staffers and senators who are ill, but not enough to proactively test all 100 senators as the chamber comes back in session, according to two people familiar with the matter.

"Anybody that wants a test can get a test." Donald Trump, March 6th

It was a lie then and it's still not true now.

I'll bet they have the capacity to test 51 Senators.

If we don't have enough test for Senators you can be damn sure we don't have enough tests for everybody else...

I recently had surgery and they tested me prior to operating. Since then I've been asking everyone I work with or live around if they've been tested.


But to be fair I've probably only asked 250 people at most.

And I ain't special...

How can we possibly be this far behind. It's not like this just became in issue yesterday or last week.

Jesus Christ And Huey Lewis! This thing is out of control.

When Pres Trump talks about having a lot of testing capacity nationwide, what he is referring to is the hardware to process the test samples.

What he is not referring to is the ability to take those samples, e.g., enough swabs, enough people in the testing process to run the advanced testing hardware, etc.

So he's talking about "the cyber" and not the cotton swabs needed to administer the tests?!?

And apparently this is the health plan which is far better than average Americans get...

This exemplifies why there will be multiple waves of illness.

We can't even tell who is sick.

Because we didn't start making tests back in January.

Los Angeles just opened up free mobile testing.

I am eager to see how that works out.

California leading the way once again.

He only has millions of tests, not millions and 100 extra. Sheesh.

They can all get private tests right now. They can afford it. Guarantee you most have, and all of their families.
