help developing nations' COVID response with $5 bil

Using debt money to help other countries, still no news how to improve Japanese economy and population

The White House also announced the same day that the United States has marked a grim milestone of 1 million lives lost to COVID-19, far more than any other country.

Japan and the US, two nations characterized by big failures of their COVID responses.

The US by slow acknowledgement of the gravity of the situation and COVID prevention measures and ongoing misinformation leading to many deaths.

And Japan relying too much on the health and hygiene of its population and enacting stimulus measures that enriched few and left many poorer than ever as the pandemic winds down.

So the national debt goes up, you need to print more money, you increase income tax-next step give money away? You can’t make this stuff up..

Meanwhile Japan cant provide financial assistance to people domestically.

Have "you" received financial help from the Japanese government ?

I think if we give all this money to US drug companies, then USA can counter the growing dominance of China in Africa.

It seems that ignoring the problem and focusing on irrelevant matters and spending money frivolously is how PM Kishida intends to deal with those issues.

Not just him James. The 2 IDIOTS before him did the exact same thing. Seems like the LDP manifesto. spend it on anything but the actual people of Japan.

$5 billion...right, but they have no money and have to cut budgets for the disabled and disadvantaged here Japan. Despicable.

They don’t even want all those tons of vaccination stuff there and let most of it only rot in their hot sun. But maybe some pharmaceutical and intercontinental logistics companies as well as those third world leaders and dictators have surely a use for that money. lol

Like I said only yesterday -- all they can do is throw money everywhere except where it's needed, and all and only for reputation. No doubt attached is a survey on what the recipients like best about Japan.

Meanwhile, back home they are talking about raising income taxes and doing everything but helping... because, you know, they can't just throw money around.
