Senator Sanders' question highlights the obscene nature of our healthcare system

Senator Bernie Sanders asked a very important question to Trump's testing Czar Adm. Brett Giroir. Will a vaccine be dispersed irrespective of income. He could not get a definitive answer.

1. for those you who remember standing in the polio sugar cube line..

...did our parents pay for these as they entered the (in our case) high school gym to get out sugar cube with the red dot?

3. Had it been Cheeto instead of Ike, they would've not only had to pay

But the payee would've been a Trump crony - and your parents would have had to sign a loyalty oath.

4. I remember being disappointed that I wouldn't have that cool scar on my arm.

Elementary school gym, 1957 or 58. Folding tables lined with rows of white squares. First time I'd ever seen, much less eaten a sugar cube. Had no dot. Did I get a placebo? Never did trust that "county nurse".
Amazingly, 15 years later I had reason to meet her again and she hadn't changed in appearance even one bit. I think she was Garp's mother or something.

2. Or irrespective of one's governor's political party.

Cheeto, as you know, has been hoarding tests, PPEs and medical supplies to later dole out to crony governors - while cravely denying it to states whose governors aren't quite as flattering.

It's 3rd world despot behavior - like so much of what we've seen from him since before he even took office.
