Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) was carjacked at gunpoint on Wednesday as she returned to her vehicle after an event in a Philadelphia park.

The congresswoman was “physically unharmed,” according to a statement from her spokesperson.

“She thanks the Philadelphia Police Department for their swift response, and appreciates the efforts of both the Sergeant at Arms in D.C. and her local police department for coordinating with Philly PD to ensure her continued safety,” the statement said.

 

According to WPVI, “Scanlon was walking to her parked vehicle and was approached by two men driving a dark-colored SUV.”

“Both men, who were armed, demanded the keys to her vehicle, police say,” WPVI continued. “They took off with her blue 2017 Acura MDX with license plate LKG-8893.”

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney released a statement saying he was “appalled” by the crime.

“I’m appalled to learn of this violent crime that was perpetrated against my friend and colleague, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon,” Kenney wrote on Twitter. “My thoughts are with her during what I’m sure is a traumatic time.”

“Everyone deserves to feel safe in our city, and sadly that hasn’t always been the case this year,” Kenney added. “It’s disheartening and infuriating that criminals feel emboldened to commit such a reckless crime in the middle of the day in what should be a place of peace — one of our city’s parks.”

    It’s exactly what our government in power has taught and sanctioned. And it rings across the country. Not just politicians being victims but citizens everywhere. It’s so disgusting. It started with Obama and has been on a roll with every democrat politician elected to office. Glorify criminals and this is what it will get you.

    What happened to the part where she is an advocate of defunding the police? Did the perps get caught by the Deleware state police because Philly doesn’t have enough cops anymore, no thanks to her?

    According to Fox, her defund-the-police bill calls for mental health workers to be sent out instead of police. That is who they should have sent, a psychiatrist.

    What would you expect? It is the message of lawlessness preached in every liberal state in America.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
