Go ahead and issue an executive order stopping Florida hospitals from acquiring ventilators from the federal government, Gov. DeSantis. Don't those government ventilators keep parents from seeing their "children's smiling faces" (since ALL of us are someone's child) when they're stuck down their throats?

Stay consistent now.

Time to recall the Florida governor.

Just like COVID-19 itself, the number of available ventilators "will soon go to zero."

The bloated plague rat from Mara Lardo predicted COVID would disappear after the election. What happened?

Sure thing just as soon as they start doing as the feds tell them the feds will start helping.

till then I see no reason to believe desentis isn't going to sell the ventilators for crack.

If Governor DeSantis himself needed a ventilator I'd tell him to call Rent-a-Center.

But if the hospitals need them to save lives, that's another story.

Ahhhh the "c-c-conservative" way.

Let people die for your ambition.

Let others pick up the tab for the wreckage your ambition leaves behind.

---- DeSantis. ---- anyone who supports him.

DeSantis drives his state into a ditch, killing God knows how many in the process, and all you got is dick jokes.

Again, you wonder why you're seen as an idiot ------ --------?

DeSantis doubts report of Florida requesting ventilators: 'I haven't been notified of that'

... I haven't been notified of that. ...

Could it be that Florida health officials are keeping Gov DeSantis out of the loop because they know of his apparent lack of concern about the health of the good citizens of Florida?

The death squad flittering around Governor DeSantis must be trapped between trying to keep folks alive and kowtowing to their putative 2024 VP candidate. I'll wager that DeSantis will continue driving this crazy train, high on swamp water, to a record-setting body count and that a year from now no one will be left to vote for him, or even put out yard signs bearing his name. Come 2024, the orange fascist will figure out on his own that a presidential ticket with DeSantis as his #2 will be a sure loser.

Ron DeSantis' political career is all over except for the dying...

and not that consistency matters, but DeathSentence is doing all of this while being vaccinated.

Not that hypocrisy matters anymore:

Too bad the FedGov can't make the ventilators contingent upon DeSantis' resignation.

I really wonder if the state would have the personnel to staff another 300 ICU ventilator beds. Most places fatigued, traumatized staff are going to be the factors that are most important.

You couldn't pay me enough money to be a nurse right now.

The average nurse in Florida makes $64,000/year
