Well, then if the NVIC awards $1M to "verified" vaccine damaged families (which, I have to say is peanuts compared to the cost of living and caring for a severely damaged child for the rest of their life), why aren't the vaccine companies paying for this? Why aren't vaccine companies putting the money in the fund? They are not being made accountable, or financially liable, for the damages. It's a "no fault" judgment, but one that is being awarded in favor of the plaintiff...and yet it is the plaintiff and every other vaxing person's money that pays for the damage. Not one penny is from the vaccine industry.
Would you expect to pay extra on food, just in case there was a huge lot of tainted eggs or meat that killed a "few" kids and severely harmed some others? Would you expect to pay extra for a car, just in case there was a design defect that caused the car to speed up unexpectedly and kill innocent people and maim others? No. Why not? Because the manufacturers are made to take the full brunt of their products shortcomings. People aren't told, "Yeah, because of the tainted meat, you now have to wear a colostomy bag and cannot hold down a job due to muscle weakness and other medical problems. Here's $1M. It's from a fund you paid in to and you cannot sue the meat company. This industry is important and so we do not want them to go out of business."
One of the reasons there are so many vax manufacturers out there is because of the PROFIT with little chance of LOSS going into vaccines. Made a lot that caused infant intestines to block and burst? The worst thing that happened is that the vax will be pulled from the shelves...they will never lose money on the litigation side...they'll just "revamp" the vax and push it through the FDA, again. How much money did Rotoshield make in the 15 months it was on the market? How much money did Rotoshield pay out in damages to affected families? I can answer that one, easily. Zero.
The very point in fact is that this IS about product liability. This is NOT about a "few" children that were hurt. We're talking, potentially, thousands (or more). If it would be better to have the NVIC, that's fine. I'm not against that. What I am against is absolute unaccountability to the vaccine industry. If they are not forced to take responsibility for their crap products (and there ARE a lot of those out there), what incentive do they have to make sure the vaxes are as safe as possible, etc?
If this was about 1 or 2 or a "few" kids harmed, there wouldn't be an issue. But, this is a much larger issue, and deserves a much broader avenue of compensation. If putting the vax industry under is such a concern, then make a tier cap. Because, honestly, $1M is not enough to care for a severely affected child, who needs a lot of medical care, in-home care, and parental care (meaning one parent will have to leave their job to care for the child). $1M will easily be spent in a couple of years' time and then what?
No, make the industry liable for the defects in their products. Remember when Thimerasol was supposed to be pulled from the vaxes? Yeah, they didn't make more with Thimerasol, but they were not required to pull the old lots with Thimerasol...that wouldn't be cost effective. Greed. Pure and simple. Greed.
You always hold a manufacturer liable for their products. If the concern is so great that holding them financially liable is going to put a $39 billion/year industry out of business...then maybe it's really is
time to sit down and really
consider the "safety" of the product/industry they are trying to protect.
