Return the money to who exactly? Is the government just taking it? Or does it go to the insurance companies, or the drug companies???? Nobody thats actually going to touch this money deserves it

Likely to the investors. And this is the problem with our regulatory agencies, only the investors are protected in our current form of capitalism. There are other working parties involved that don’t get the same consideration, and unfortunately, the dummies who vote based on what their preferred Facebook threads say, have no clue about the things that actually affect their lives.
