OCASIO-CORTEZ: "It is absolutely needed. We are thankful to anyone who is pitching in on this effort. But we are nowhere near the beds, the capacity, that we need in this country. And, you know, we’re hearing every step of the way from this administration, first we were hearing it was a hoax, then we were hearing everything was fine, then we were hearing that the fundamentals of the economy was okay, until the crash comes. And we cannot wait until people start really dying in large numbers to start production, especially of more complicated equipment like ventilators and hospital beds. We need to start this production right now to get ready for the surge that is coming in two to three weeks."
