When this stunt was originally rolled out in winter 2022 during the first Omicron wave, massive federal purchase orders emptied normal distribution channels and caused drug store shelves to be empty — meaning no tests when people wanted them — and they arrived in the mail weeks later when the wave was mostly over.
Biden must think that the Federal government is running a $2 trillion surplus, rather than a deficit.
