I think the plan is to get the shipping company to reimburse the government. But, as I understand, that may take years cuz I’m sure the company will try and weasel out of paying. So, the Biden administration is fronting the money to get work started on the rebuilding and getting life back to normal.

Also, as I understand, the engineers can’t design a bridge that protects against everything when budget constraints prevent it. This incident was so beyond what one could protect against or imagine. That ship is just so danged gigantic. Set adrift without power, I doubt ANYTHING could have stopped the bridge from collapsing after contact.

And now, Amazon gets to be the holder of all these debts, too. How many small business loans do they already hold? The community bank is dead. Long live the United Bank of Amazon. 😢
