Oh man, I hope that guy doesn't blow all that money and then do something like buy a car. "I'm getting $5,000 a month, I can afford that car payment!" x_x
I was reading about how the vaccination rate is going so slow in the US and that our country is donating doses all over the place now. It got me thinking about how much that cost us as taxpayers since it was a huge federal government deal that got signed back during Trump's presidency. Basically we have a huge surplus because a large chunk of people aren't getting the vaccine and the vaccines that were ordered have a shelf life of either use it or lose it. Looks like US taxpayers paid roughly $19.50 per shot:
and we're been donating those all over the place:
I can't find an actual solid number of total covid 19 vaccine doses that have been donated. But at roughly $20 a dose, for every 100,000,000 doses we've donated it's roughly $2 trillion? in taxpayer money to vaccinate other countries. I would love to see an actual breakdown of that initial deal for how much us as taxpayers have spent on Covid19 vaccines. As it is now, these vaccine companies are making huge profits.
And since the US gives away all the covid vaccines for free to the citizens, turns out its free to anyone that resides in a location. Turns out canadians have been able to get them since way early this year. They only had to drive to the US, say they're staying at a hotel and get a free shot. lol.
More local... I've been seeing alot more places starting to lift their mask requirements. It was nice last week, I went to a local ice cream place and everyone outside in line had no masks and masks were no longer required inside either. It was almost like things are going back to normal. But everywhere is understaffed and every place is hiring. Nobody is taking the jobs because that last stimulus guaranteed $300 a week in extra federal unemployment through September. Some states have opted out of that extra money, but NY seems hell bent on keeping it so everywhere in NY will be understaffed until at least September since everyone is making more money to stay home than work jobs.
