Why isn't the AG announcing investigations in to companies who are profiteering from the states being forced to bid against each other for essential medical supplies. A bidding process coming as a result of Trump's abdication of his role as the national coordinator of the dispersal of scarce supplies.

States Are Being Forced Into Bidding Wars To Get Medical Equipment To Combat Coronavirus


Similarly, Kentucky Governor, Andy Beshear, admitted that his state lost out to the Federal Emergency Management Agency when bidding to get protective equipment saying, “It is a challenge. The federal government says ‘states, you need to go find your supply chain’ and then the federal government ends up buying from that supply chain.”

Detroit Mayor, Mike Duggan, has also been frustrated with the bidding wars saying, “I shouldn’t be trying to out-negotiate the Mayor of Chicago or the Mayor of Houston. There needs to be a federal response.”

In Desperation, New York State Pays Up to 15 Times the Normal Prices for Medical Equipment

With the coronavirus outbreak creating an unprecedented demand for medical supplies and equipment, New York state has paid 20 cents for gloves that normally cost less than a nickel and as much as $7.50 each for masks, about 15 times the usual price. It’s paid up to $2,795 for infusion pumps, more than twice the regular rate. And $248,841 for a portable X-ray machine that typically sells for $30,000 to $80,000.

This payment data, provided by state officials, shows just how much the shortage of key medical equipment is driving up prices. Forced to venture outside their usual vendors and contracts, states and cities are paying exorbitant sums on a spot market ruled by supply and demand. Although New York’s attorney general has denounced excessive prices, and ordered merchants to stop overcharging people for hand sanitizers and disinfectant sprays, state laws against price gouging generally don’t apply to government purchases.


BTW, Claudette, go fuck youself.
