China hints at denying Americans
life-saving coronavirus drugs

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 3/13/2020 12:30:47 PM

Now that the number of new people infected with the coronavirus in China is slowing down, the country's Communist Party is ratcheting up threats against the West, with a particularly nasty warning about access to life-saving drugs aimed at the United States.(Snip)The article also claimed that China could impose pharmaceutical export controls which would plunge America into "the mighty sea of coronavirus." The disturbing threats made during a global pandemic as well as the scary consequences if that threat becomes real highlight just how tight China's grip is on the global supply chain. Already, the Food and Drug Administration has announced the first drug shortage related to the coronavirus.

Comments:

Pharmaceutical companies in this country need to consider the consequences of their decisions to outsource the manufacturing of medications that put American lives in harm’s way. A ripple effect impacts not only American citizens, but its armed forces as well. That consideration should include not only prescription medications, but over-the-counter medications as well.

The last thing on earth we need now is something medical ''new and improved'' from our frienemies in China. Of course, the Democrats are killing as many babies a day as they can shove down the tubes, but they can't kill the old people that fast, there's just too many of 'em.

China doesnt dare make good on this threat. Sure, in the short term they get to poke the United State. The long term economic consequences to the Chineese economy would be devestating. Right now, in board rooms across the world, companies are discussing diversifying their manufacturing facilities. At this moment, some company is reconsidering opening a new plant in China. Right now, trade represenatives from Mexico, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea etc are putting presentations together showing why companies should open shop in their coutries. Right now, the Trump administration should be doing the same.......if it isnt already.

So finally the fact that our unfettered and unequal trade with the Communist Chinese is damaging to US security and soveriegnty, you know what President Trump has been saying for years, has come home. I would like to thank the globalist of both parties for placing us in this position. You wanted to sell cheap Made in China crap to America for outrageous profits. Cheap crap is turning out to not be so very cheap in the end. Blood on your hands!!

If China chooses to be an unreliable trading partner, especially in such an important issue, they will soon find they are not a trading partner at all. Trump has been saying all along that China gets too much of our business and we need to manufacture our own goods. Of course the dems fight that idea. Now the Chinese have shown their true colors and dems look stupid once again.

1.) Chinese pharmaceuticals companies have moved in and taken over, No, we handed it to them thinking we could make more profits. 2.) China cannot stop this country from weathering this virus better than they do. If they hold all the pharmaceutical cards then why are more of their people dying? 3.) Even if China follows through on this threat, America will be just fine. And those people around the world who wanted to see China so deeply involved in our supply chains will be forced to admit that Trump was right about China all along. Sorry, but this needless suffering will result in more winning.

China is making a statement that "You need us more than We need you." The U.S. Rust Belt States would rejoice to have manufacturing return to these depressed areas.

Thanks, OP, I was just getting ready to post this. Once this particular insanity passes, we need high tariffs on ALL medical supplies, including precursor chemicals, from China. And we need tax incentives and other regulatory relief, as needed, to encourage medical supplies and all pharmaceuticals to be manufactured in the USA. Perhaps a requirement that all US military and dependent medical supplies must be entirely US sourced might get things rolling. One of the barriers to US pharma manufacturing is, I have no doubt, the EPA. EPA regs are frequently nonsensical bureaucratic insanity which do not accomplish the goals of clean air and clean water any better than less intrusive and less expensive alternatives. These increased costs drive production overseas. In an earlier life, I worked in the chemicals and plastics industry and the EPA was just getting cranked up and was a rapidly growing bureaucratic nightmare. Offsetting tax relief for the added EPA-induced costs is needed, or the economics just don't work. EPA regulations are a literal "tax" on manufacturing in the USA. We have to offset that.

It only takes a minute for the smiling mask to slip off the face of these Communist murderers. The sooner we stop buying all this stuff from these third-world thugs, the better. Poster #6 is correct: this will result in short-term pain and long-term gain.

The beauty of free markets and capitalism is that it gives both parties to a deal an incentive to satisfy each other - or no transaction occurs. China has been playing capitalist with the rest of the world to grow their economy, with spectacular success for them. But now we see behind the curtain. Fair enough, if they do this, then they will learn that capitalists require partners who honor agreements. They will destroy their world trade for a generation if they do this.

I wish President Trump would start his speech tonight by saying that he is stopping the import of all Chinese goods into this country effective immediately. Turn the ships around. Load the crates back on other ships and send them all back. China wants to play hardball, we play right back. We can live without cheap plastic garbage from China, but China's economy couldn't survive the loss of the USA's dollars!!!!!

China China China. We have been fed this BSA by every Dem administration since Carter. Militarily, technologically, and industrially South Korea could kick China's butt. China can not deny Americans ANYTHING for more than 6 months. Remember way back when? The Saudi cloth tops were going to cut of our oil (gasp). Nice try cloth tops. as of this week you can't sell it for enough to cover one weekend in Bahrain (that's where the Russian hookers are). China can go to hell.

The real problem is that everything goes right down the memory hole, thanks to the (completely biased) media. The fact that Democrats have been ridiculing Mr. Trump for wanting America to become less reliant on China, will be promptly "forgotten" by the American press. (This characteristic also makes learning almost impossible.)

China has just sighed it's own economic death warrant. Their handling of the coronavirus outbreak teamed up with these threats is so singularly stupid it is almost had to believe. The resounding message is China cannot be trusted to tell the truth and can't be trusted as a trading partner. I guess they forgot that Donald J Trump is the president, not what's his name. The proud message "Made in the USA" is returning with a vengeance.

Kind of like the cop going back to the McDonald's where the clerk blew her nose into his Big Mac and wrote "Pig" on his coffee cup. Why would you want to depend on China for anything? What can't be done cost effectively in the United States, transfer production to India, and even Mexico, where jobs would keep their citizens working on their side of the border.

Building on what some of the people above have been saying: The decision to move manufacturing to china was, yes, cost... but not just cost of labor or production... It was cost of regulation, taxes, legal liabilities that were outrageous here but non-existent in china. Basically, our congresscritters and our government, and the hordes of administrators who could impose taxes and regulations at will with no review, PUSHED U.S. manufacturing out of this country. Some companies followed just to stay competitive. The first big thing to change that? Trump's 21% top rate of tax for companies. The next thing was tariffs. Those evil things that so many people said 'weren't conservative', 'weren't free trade', 'didn't match our principles.' Now we have the third thing. A bit of reality about what we really put at risk. Enough.

Until the Clinton regime, US tax law was favorable to pharmaceutical companies to operate production facilities in Puerto Rico. The company I worked for had operations there as did many others. With the end of the tax favorability, we moved our production to Ireland in the late 90s.

Actually, #9, while what you say used to be absolutely true, we now have a handful of moderately to reasonably effective antiviral drugs. Not perfect, don't work on every kind, but they are there. About 10 years ago I had a flareup of shingles while traveling in Russia, didn't know what it was. Two Rooskie docs had no clue at all, gave me skin ointments. When I got back in the USA, I went immediately to my doc, and she opened the door to the exam room, and said.....OK, shingles, we'll get you going on an antiviral for that, at a glance, from 10 ft away. So much for Rooskie docs. In any case the antiviral started that day, and things were noticeably better in a day, symptoms gone in two more days. It had been getting worse every day for about 8 days. Get the shingles vaccine.

Clarification: to #36. Shingles is a later in life manifestation of the chicken pox virus, which your body drives down but cannot entirely eliminate, it hides inside our nerve cells, apparently. As we age, occasionally it resurfaces as shingles. It is a virus, and there is now a vaccine. And antivirals druges do exist and do help a LOT.

Our lives might depend on some Chinese commie dwarf who becomes more aggressive every time he opens his mouth?? American manufacturers you had better start producing medications in this country again, as of yesterday! Any job we can perform in this country bring it back over here. We the people demand it, we do not want to be at the mercy of some Chinese commies. Any job back over here is one lost over there! Great! I'll celebrate that!
