I think taxpayers should be much more concerned about the richest members of society not being taxpayers at all.
I understand the point of the thread. Why are we collectively giving money to big Pharma? They killed countless thousands with opioids, and when it came time for them to be held accountable, they declared bankruptcy. How can they be “bankrupt” when they still have billions in their pockets?
Our system is absolutely rigged for the rich, and nixing this patent in this one exceptional case in order to help the entire world would have been a better choice. If they can be “let off the hook” for the opioid epidemic, they can make a bit of a sacrifice sometimes too.
I, too, understand the point of the thread, if it is expressing a concern about the profits "big pharma" (in the US) can hope to extract from the conditions of the current global pandemic.
But, the point of the thread is not reflected in the title of the thread.
