Antitrust Laws suspended for medical suppliers (1)

They can now legally form an anti-competition pact among themselves but make hospitals, first responders, and the public bid for product and compete against one another.

Blue Flame Agency/Great Health Companion 

An American company, chartered in 2020 when the crisis hit, dedicated to providing best in class service to governments, hospital systems, companies and non-profits to help America navigate this crisis. The founders, John Thomas and Mike Gula, came together to leverage their networks for the purpose of providing critical COVID-19 medical supplies from authentic licensed and certified manufacturers to millions of people around the world who need it most.

The slightest acquaintance with history shows that powerful republics are the most warlike and unscrupulous of nations.” –  Ambrose Bierce, Warlike America
