Why is Medicare paying $40 instead of $1.50 per Covid-19 dose?
Because Chiquita Brooks-LaSure approved it.
She is the head of Medicare & Medicaid Services, a one trillion dollar agency.
Chiquita’s budget is bigger than the Pentagon’s.
The U.S. spends half of what the rest of the world does on military operations.
According to her federal agency’s website, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is paying $40 per Covid-19 dose.
India, however, is paying three dollars for a dose made by one of its country’s drugmakers.
