I have two questions that I would like to for your office to answer for me if you will.

My first question is, Why is it that the US Government prohibits American citizens from buying American made pharmaceuticals from Canada or Mexico, but at the same time will contract with a foreign company to supply vaccines? Is this not a contradiction to your many public statements concerning how unsafe foreign made pharmaceuticals are suppose to be?

My second question is this. Since the US Food and Drug Administration has taken on the responsibility of certifying which drugs and other pharmaceuticals are safe for human use and consumption, then why is it when something your office said was safe turns out to actually be harmful and not safe that the manufacturer is the one who is suddenly liable? Common sense and logic would say that since the US Food and Drug Administration was the one responsible for verifying that these were safe and certified them as such, that they should then be the ones held responsible for when it turns out that they were wrong about how safe they were.

Neither of these makes any sense to me whatsoever. I would greatly appreciate your answers and comments regarding these two questions.
