  • We’re working with lightning speed on this…I had a wonderful conversation with Mary Barra, the CEO of GM, and I was so pleased to hear from her that they’re going to begin rolling ventilators off that factory in Kokomo, Indiana within a matter of weeks. They’ve answered the call…I want to assure the American people that we have the full force of government and the full power of private enterprise working together with patriotic pride to help the American people meet this challenge.
