This is a small example of the stunning graft and hypocrisy within the ideological Biden administration.

The White House has announced {SEE HERE} they are purchasing ten million courses of the new Pfizer COVID therapeutic treatment pill called Paxlovid.

[…] “Today, I’m announcing that we have purchased 10 million treatment courses of the Pfizer antiviral COVID-19 pill, with delivery starting at the end of this year and across 2022.” (link)

The Biden payment to Pfizer is for $5.3 billion {link}.  At 10 million courses that equals $530 per treatment.

Laughably, the White House says “pending FDA approval“, as if the FDA would not approve the Pfizer pill.

Pretending not to know things, just two days ago the White House Press Secretary said this:

Keep in mind the U.S. taxpayer fully subsidized the research and development for the entire spectrum of COVID-19 treatments and vaccines.  The development cost the private pharmaceutical companies, in this example Pfizer, absolutely nothing.

We the taxpayers fund the COVID pill development through Pfizer, and then we the taxpayers purchase the final product from Pfizer; in this example for $5.3 billion.  It’s a big money laundry.  (Plus 10% for the big guy)

$5.3 billion nets 10 million treatments, or roughly $530.00 per treatment.  At 30 pills per course each pill costs $17.67
