    You know, you could have paid for the research and development and nobody bothered to tell you.

    And you did.

    Or the cost of risk.

    Don't forget these companies are (or were) creating a product that never been created before, and did not even know at the time if it would work or if they would ever be able to get any money from their investment.

    If the Democrat states had wanted to, they could have gotten together and, with their research universities, developed their own product. But they didn't.
    So it was left to the for-profit private sector.

    And it probably would have been left to the for-profit private sector even if the Democrats had been in charge of the federal government. As most of you will have to reluctantly admit.

    It wasn't left to the private sector.

    "The US government invested at least $31.9bn to develop, produce, and purchase mRNA covid-19 vaccines, including sizeable investments in the three decades before the pandemic through March 2022. These public investments translated into millions of lives saved and were crucial in developing the mRNA vaccine technology that also has the potential to tackle future pandemics and to treat diseases beyond covid-19. To maximize overall health impact, policy makers should ensure equitable global access to publicly funded health technologies."

    - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9975718/

    So the government has been funding mRNA gene therapy research and development since before the turn of the miillinium. Then the covid comes around and the federal government giving Moderna contracts, including 53 million dollars to increase manufacturing capacity.

    That's nothing compared to the markup on most prescription drugs.

    Most prescription drugs are not prescribed through conscription.

    Let's see here what all your government has done here. - first they gave out a bunch of grants to investigate mRNA gene therapy. Meanwhile, at the same time your government was giving grants to China's Wuhan Institute of Virology which was working on gain of function research. Next, the Wuhan flu gets loose and your government gives money to Moderna so they can test , although minimally, the effectiveness and saftey of the new mRNA gene therapy shot which was funded by you, the taxpayer. Then your government buys the product you paid to reaserch, develop, and produce from a private manufacturer names Moderna.

    Do you suppose Moderna has to pay back any of the billions of dollars they received for taking on almost no risk whatsoever?

    It's not like their "vaccine" induced immunity. The product does not work. But your congressman and senators have Moderna stock, and they needed a return on the investment in research and development which congress had already payed for with your money.

    The pharmaceutical industry has been effectively nationalized for decades. It is part of the fascist system under which we live. Congress & Reagan granted them immunity from liability for their dangerous products, after the industry instructed them to do so. About 10 years later Congress & Clinton changed the laws so that Pharma could advertise direct to consumers for Rx medications.

    Under cover of law and executive authority, it is mandatory that all children be inoculated at young ages. And on and on....

    The answer to the question you pose is simple--this was an inside job, planned years in advance, and in full cooperation with the military's desire to have biological weapons to play with. Our entire federal government is a criminal organization, sleeping with Big Pharma.

    No, we just need to remove the monopoly privileges.

    You mean, the cost of developing the virus itself...?

    I wonder what the rebuttal to Dr. Martin might be.

    In today's world they will simply say he loves Putin, and the herd will applaud.
