“The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions,,, $3,070,301 was spent on payroll.”
In a nutshell, the company did zero for cancer research and did a lot for Biden’s DC friends who were paid to do, well, nothing
The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 by Joe and Jill Biden to “develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes” according to its IRS mission statement.
In a nutshell, the company did zero for cancer research and did a lot for Biden’s DC friends who were paid to do, well, nothing. The charity “gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent millions on the salaries of former Washington, DC, aides it hired” reported The Post.
“The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018” reported The Post. Certainly, great things could be done in the cancer research field with that huge sum of money. Instead, $3,070,301 was spent on payroll.
Tax filings show the group’s president, Gregory Simon, made a whopping $429,850 from July 2018 to June 2019. “Simon, a former Pfizer executive and longtime health care lobbyist who headed up the White House’s cancer task force in President Barack Obama’s administration, saw his salary nearly double from the $224,539 he made in fiscal 2017, tax filings show.”
