Now extrapolate the savings in healthcare by folks not getting the virus and not being hospitalized. You got to crack a few eggs to make an omelette.

Quite the business model

Problem (created/inflated)

Pfizer getting paid was probably a byproduct of China’s release of the Wu Flu. Getting Drumph was the primary intent.

Drug companies are bad. Government protections for drug companies are really bad. I don't care what it sounds like to you.

This is basically an anti-capitalist rant.

If you ignore the government involvement and inherent NAP violation, sure.

I have no problem of being critical when calling out exploits (in any system)

I hold many "opposing' views in balance. An example being an advocate for food quality and responsibly caring for the environment while acknowledging that "climate change" is fear mongering

You don't think people infer from your OP that you are suggesting that the billions in profit is a bad thing? Other who responded certainly believe it is bad. There is no button for respond to all in a thread, so I directed the response to your op.

I think the amount of government money they received for development and being paid by the government by the dose can be called into questions without saying the profit is necessarily "bad"...

How much in taxes is expected from their 3.5 billion windfall?

This sounds like the pharmaceutical version of the military-industrial complex. Government and industry and rubbing each other's back. If the government can sell the need for a vaccine to more of the public, they get more kickbacks and big pharma makes more profit.

I'm not against companies making profit after footing the bill for the research and development when the market calls for natural demand of a product. But this doesn't smell right to me.

The link says Pfizer took no federal dollars and always said they were looking to profit.

They need it to keep pace with all the pay-offs given to politicians.

So far, the largest sums have gone to pharmaceutical giants Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and a collaboration between Sanofi and GSK, as well as biotech firms Moderna and Novavax – all of which have candidate vaccines being tested in people

So, did they not take the money, give the money back or was USA Today wrong in their reporting?

USA Today

NY Times

Reuters

If you mean knee jerk reactions and not reading the link, I guess you are correct.
