The fact they only decided to do these free at home tests is because a reporter at a White House Press Briefing two weeks prior to them announcing this asked the press secretary why don't they provide free tests to everyone like some other countries do and she replied kind of dismissively "Should we just send one to every American?" YES. And people online got very vocal with their YES. Wish everything our government decided was a good idea suddenly because of backlash came to happen. If only there was a system in which we vote on like maybe just a candidate who stands for these ideas, they get elected, and then actually gets them implemented. What a concept, We should try that all the way through sometime.
