Let’s Put the Government in Charge of Healthcare!?!

This just in:

Companies with thousands of employees, past penalties from government investigations and risks of financial failure even before the coronavirus walloped the economy were among those receiving millions of dollars from a relief fund that Congress created to help small businesses through the crisis, an Associated Press investigation found.

Isn’t that awesome? The government f%cked this up as well. Here is one example:

Wave Life Sciences USA Inc., a Boston-area biotechnology company that develops new pharmaceuticals, received a $7.2 million loan. Weeks earlier, Wave Life Sciences, whose parent company is based in Singapore, disclosed in its annual report net losses of $102 million, $147 million and $194 million during the last three fiscal years. 

“We currently have no products on the market and expect that it may be many years, if ever, before we have a product candidate ready for commercialization,” it wrote.

The CV19 pandemic was bad. The government response to it was bad. The government printing money and giving it the wrong people……priceless.

But let’s let the government take over healthcare?

    “Bipartisan” by definition means “failure.” The government took a problem and made it worse; now it is too invested in its mistake to admit it, and so is making it worse still by adding to it.
