Is Profit More Important Than Public Health?

Is Trump holding back on COVID-19 testing, to make sure that his buddies can make huge profits from vaccines?

Federal money is going in to vaccine research, but will the vaccine be sold at monopoly prices, putting it out of reach of the person in the street. Has money become more important than health? Robert Weissman, President of Public Citizen, joins Thom Hartmann to discuss the topic. Weissman is a staunch public interest advocate and activist, as well as an expert on corporate and government accountability.
