    Because certain law makers view it as “saving the economy” in short. Majority of them are also involved stocked wise or directly participate in said company.

    This host, I have seen in the Chinese news, he was talking about 5G, said the United States 5G is on the basis of 4G, changed a head picture. It’s like my Volkswagen, with the Ferrari logo on the side. I want to see him do a rap. 这主持人,我在中国新闻上见过, 他当时在说5G ,说美国5G是在4G基础上,换了个头像。就好像我的大众汽车,在车身上装上法拉利标志 。我想看他来段说唱。

    Rep Porter, what makes you think the Dem party will get a 2nd opportunity to get these things done. If history is any guide it appears your party will lose your majority in the House and possibly the Senate in 2022. While I respect the stand you have taken on many issues, your response rings hollow if not disingenuous.

    Wait are these the same as vaccine manufacturers????! Jesus!!!

    Where are the file a lawsuit Republican talking heads now who think regular people one, have the money to file lawsuits and two, beat corporations at these games.

    Just so uou know they are trying to break off an asset here. And they can do it but for individuals, transfer when there are pending litigation or even threat of litigation is illegal.

    So congrats corporations have more rights than actual people.
    The government for the people protects corporations against the people. Government by the people for corporations 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 yay America

    5:01 That’s where you’re technically wrong, Trev. They may not be monetarily bankrupt, but they ARE morally bankrupt.

    I hope judges don’t fall for this b*******. The United States used to execute charters, which means if corporations were found to be acting in ways that harm the public, their corporate charters were yanked. We should get back to that

    The irony of america and its “free market” is that there are tons of systems that make sure its not a free market and the same companies don’t die and the market doesn’t change and they can avoid destruction even if they are criminal

    Representative Katie Porter should be our first female president. Please don’t let it be Liz Cheney…

    My thing is how can we trust private corporations to make a vaccine for a virus that sprung out over night if we can’t trust them to make baby powder and pain pills.
