HHS bids $250 million contract meant to 'defeat despair and inspire hope' on coronavirus - POLITICO


One day its just going to disappear.


Isnt there already a government agency that can handle this?

The document also lists the goals of the contract: defeat despair and inspire hope, sharing best practices for businesses to operate in the new normal and instill confidence to return to work and restart the economy, build a coalition of spokespeople around the country, provide important public health, therapeutic and vaccine information as the country reopens, and give Americans information on the phases of reopening.

Great use of a quarter of a billion dollars. Meanwhile:

Trump Administration Slashes Funds for ACA Outreach
Most of the funding for an Affordable Care Act outreach program is being cut by the Trump administration, a move announced late Tuesday that touched off an angry response from Democrats who called it another attempt to sabotage the health law.

Obamacare Markets Will Not Reopen, Trump Decides
So far, the administration has declined to publicize the existing options for Americans who have recently lost health benefits through job reductions.

12 million have lost employer-sponsored health insurance during pandemic
Since the pandemic hit the U.S., more than 6 million Americans have lost health insurance they'd previously had through their work. And when you take into account spouses and children, the number of those affected climbs to more than 12 million, according to new research.

If only there was some constructive use of PR money that could concretely better the lives of millions of people. But what could it be?!

So no matter what the federal government does or does not do our friends on the left are going to bitch a storm about it.
Trump hate at a frenzied level. Biden is sinking so there is lots of despair on the left now. Get ready for more acting out! ;)

Guess that means more American cities burning courtesy of the radical left.

When people think that government spending is the solution to all problems, what's another wasted $250 mil.
