1082: What Really Happened?

The shameful Big Pharma giveaway called S. 1082, the FDA Revitalization Act of 2007, was passed by a bought-and-paid for Senate by a vote of 93-1. Other than Independent Bernard Sanders (Vermont), every member of the Senate voted to weaken the few protections left to the American people from dangerous drugs and corrupt regulators so focused on their own conflicted interests that they regularly allow the people of the United States (and, through the "Trilateral Cooperation Charter, of Mexico and Canada, too) to literally die while they make a killing.


Follow the Money

It is interesting to look at the Statistics presented by USA Today on May 11, 2007 in an article entitled "Senators who weakened drug bill received millions from industry".

I am, quite frankly, absolutely astonished that buying a Senator is so cheap. All in all, even the "big bucks" of their purchase prices are really not that much. Perhaps the non-monetized "favors" and "friends" that come with Big Pharma's pleasure are worth much more. As reported, between 2001 and 2007 the campaign donations from Big Pharma to the Senators that did the most to pass this dangerous, corrupt and corrupting bill came to:

* Richard Burr (R-NC) $520,694 (Burr was the sponsor of Bioshield III, a the biggest Big Pharma give away every until 1082)
* John Kerry (d-MA) 304,888
* Joe Lieberman (I-CT) 281,040
* Arlan Specter (R-PA) $259,699
* Orin Hatch (R-UT) $241,850
* Chuck Grassley (R-IA) $216,599
* Max Bacus (D-MT) $199,000
* Chris Dodd (D-CT) $192,025
* Tom Carper (D-DE) $183,749
* Mike Enzi (R-WY) $174,338
* Ted Kennedy $71,000

For Shame!

For shame that the Senate took no steps to protect food and dietary supplements, the single greatest economic competitor to pharmaceutical profits from a marauding FDA which already seeks to put the competition, natural medicine, out of business.

For shame that this Senate could not protect the American people from the same FDA that issued their malignant FDA "Guidance on the Regulation of CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine)" which Representative Ron Paul, MD (R, TX) calls "an abuse of the power of the FDA."
