As the US Congress debates the 2nd, but stalled, stimulus bill to help Americans hurt by the China Act of War Virus shutdowns, is a Key figure playing a role in the negotiations is Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) billionaire Bill Gates.
If it makes you wonder why Mr. Gates, who is not an elected official, would have anything to do with the stimulus, you are not alone.
He is, and he bragged about the fact that he is working with Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to get billions of dollars added into the stimulus package to give to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, just another Dem Pork Chop.
If he is successful, that money would not go to struggling Americans but will be sent outside of America for vaccines in developing countries.
Mr. Gates says that he wants “billions” for Gavi, evidently beyond the $1.6-B that The Trump Administration has pledged to Gavi for the fiscal years 2020-2023.
The techonaracy at work.
“I believe that his efforts are very self-serving and will not meet the needs of the intended American recipient – the lower income families. This is where the need is required which is the true reason for such a stimulus. It is not to finance, self-serving projects, especially where there are presently a number of potential vaccines awaiting final approval by the FDA.
“I hope certain politicians understand this and that they stop playing pork barrel, self-serving games with the American people. People, like Gates, know little about the Washington system required to get bills approved. In fact, they think money talks and unfortunately billionaires are wrongly perceived in Washington.
“Most are totally ineffectively, except using their money adversely to affect American opinion and destroy our traditional system of democracy. We all know it is not perfect and can be improved in certain areas”, says economist Bruce WD Barren.
