The power of big Pharma

This video is a look at the power of big Pharma in the United States, and just how difficult it can be to make changes that negatively affect the industry's profits:

instead of "our law makers" they should be renamed "our law breakers"!! if myself or others would be participating in such "bribery", corruption, thieveing, underhanded, lieing,backscratching, threats of retaliation of harm, scaming, you name it and this is only the tip of the iceberg---we'd be up for treason amongst other charges. at the same time these "lawbreakers" enjoy the best health care, food, travel, clothing, houseing etc. at our expense.

anyhow, we all know where i'm comeing from--greed and money---and power.

they got this thing going on they can listen to us anytime they want---that's ok--but fair is fair---"i want to listen" to their private wheeling and dealing conversations. all their conversations!! i got nothing to hide---but i'll bet the news report we just watched would seem like a sunday school class compaired to what we don't get to hear.

they talk the talk but don't walk the walk once they get what they want.

Thanks for that Blossom. It furthers my conviction that the government is run by crooks! BTW that bill was a Bush initiative. So no one can say its all the Democrats who are crooked big spenders. The Republicans are equally crooked. I haven't voted for an R or a D for president in the last 20 years. Unfortunately in the House and Senate there aren't many options, but where ever possible I vote Libertarian.

I'd love to throw out all the Rs and Ds.
