Jerry Moran should be ashamed of himself. This pandemic is the worst disaster our country has faced since the Great Depression. He told the Hutchinson Rotary Club that our response to the pandemic was flat-footed, that we were unprepared.

But he, personally, let this happen. We were fully prepared with an extensive epidemic response system and stockpiles of supplies. But he voted with the president to defund and dismantle the entire system. That's judgment as poor as you can get and it's fully on him.

It's unforgivable to leave us unprotected. He needs to be held accountable for his poor judgment. Tell him so today. Since he can't be kicked out now, when the time comes, he needs to be voted out.
