According to our report w/@COVIDoversight, nearly 400M doses of lifesaving coronavirus vaccines were destroyed as a result of Emergent BioSolution’s failures—far higher than previously thought.
Emergent’s business practices are simply unacceptable.
According to our joint report with @COVIDoversight, Emergent profited from the pandemic while violating the public trust.
WATCH Chair @RepMaloney call on the government to subject all federal contractors to rigorous oversight to prevent such abuse from happening again:
“The Oversight Cmte strongly supports the purchase of electric vehicles for the Postal Service’s fleet. An all-electric Postal Service fleet would reduce costs, increase reliability, and improve the Postal Service’s ability to efficiently deliver mail and packages."— @RepMaloney
HAPPENING SOON: At 10 AM, @OversightDems will consider legislation to ensure the Postal Service has an accurate environmental impact statement to inform its acquisition of Next Generation Delivery Vehicles, and make other good government reforms.
Chair @RepMaloney was right: "With a hostile Supreme Court, extremist state governments are no longer chipping away at constitutional rights—they are bulldozing right through them."
The leaked SCOTUS draft decision affirmed this. We will fight to protect #abortioncare.
For years, McKinsey lined its pockets with money from opioid manufacturers WHILE consulting for FDA on drug safety measures at the same time.
This week’s @OversightDems hearing was another step toward accountability.
Our investigation has made it clear: McKinsey worked for big opioid manufacturers while consulting the FDA on regulating the dangerous drug.
@RepKatiePorter wants to know why McKinsey's Global Managing Partner didn't feel the need to disclose this glaring conflict of interest:
According to our investigation, McKinsey made more than $140 million in taxpayer money consulting for FDA in 2008—but McKinsey's Global Managing Partner cannot answer how much his company made advising #opioid manufacturers on selling the dangerous drug.
The goal of today's hearing is simple: Promote accountability and seek justice for the millions of families whose lives have been ravaged by this epidemic—and to protect Americans from suffering more harm.
WATCH Chair @RepMaloney deliver her opening statement:
Bob Sternfels, managing partner at McKinsey, testifies before Congress today, in response to a "stunning" report about his company’s consultants working simultaneously for Purdue Pharma and the F.D.A. In a guest essay, @drJoshS outlines the stakes. nyti.ms/3vL3ueH
Make no mistake: McKinsey leveraged federal contracts to obtain additional opioid business and fuel the deadly #opioidepidemic.
Tomorrow at 10 AM, we're holding a hearing to hold them accountable and prevent further abuse. invidious.fdn.fr/fK0pmrmjmtE
According to @USGAO, eight million tax returns from 2021 are still awaiting processing.
With the #2022taxseason already underway, Congress must ensure the IRS has the resources it needs to catch up and give Americans the high-quality service they deserve.
"I hear from constituents every day who are battling the IRS’s online, telephone, and in-person systems to get their refund, money they need to buy medication, groceries, or their children’s school supplies."
—Chair @GerryConnolly on why he is holding today's hearing
