Lena Rothman started this petition to Governors of Minnesota;Georgia;Iowa and Nebraska

When President Trump was asked to invoke the Defense Production Act to turn out  ventilators and PPE(Personal Protective Equipment) to save peoples lives from Covid 19 he refused on the basis that it was reminiscent of Socialist policies.He stated "You know, we’re a country not based on nationalizing our business. Call a person over in Venezuela, ask them how did nationalization of their businesses work out? Not too well.” 1. He alone is responsible for not providing for our front line defenders, nurses, doctors,family and friends of dying patients. He acted as if we,the people, are disposable.

Yet when the meat industry is in jeopardy of losing $$ profits he threatens to invoke the Defense Production Act to forbid Meat Packing Plants from closing.This act alone further proves his disinterest, his distaste for human life over economic profit“When Congress passed that act(The Defense Production Act) it certainly did not have in mind that the president has the power or the right to put workers’ lives and health at risk,” says Lawrence Gostin, professor of global health law at Georgetown University and director of the World Health Organization Center on National and Global Health Law.2 Please sign the petition asking the Governors of these states to stand up to Trump and shut their plants until safety is guaranteed to the workers.
