FDA and Presidential Candidates Bought By Big Pharma


Today, Allison and I are travelling from Nelson, NZ to Auckland, NZ.  Therefore, I have some time to write you.

Tuesday is election day in Michigan.  Again, as in past elections, I am unhappy with the choices presented to me.

As for my politics—I dislike both major parties and feel they have failed our country terribly.  We are in desperate need of a third party where healthy, normal citizens can run for the major offices.

Although I am in New Zealand, I just discussed the election with Allison.  Here are my thoughts. Crippled America: How ... Donald J. Trump Best Price: $1.48 Buy New $8.97 (as of 03:40 UTC - Details)

In the U.S., as in other countries, we have a lot of problems.  But, the biggest problem–the white elephant in the room– is our dysfunctional health care system.  We spend nearly 20% of our GNP on health care—well more than any other Western country– and have little to show for it.  On every single health indicator as monitored by the World Health Organization, Americans finish dead last.  As compared to other Western countries, America finishes last in every category including infant mortality and longevity.  We take more medicines and inject our children with more vaccines than any other people on the face of the planet.  Our children are suffering more and more health disorders and each generation seems sicker.  According to the WHO, our children are sicker than children from other Western countries.  And, to top it off, our medicines are the most expensive.  Clearly, taking more medicines or injecting more vaccines is not the answer.

I fear our health care expenditures will bankrupt the country if we do not change things.

So, which candidates could you trust to change this situation?

Best Price: $5.63 Buy New $8.22 (as of 10:41 UTC - Details) Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio have all been well-funded by Big Pharma.  They have all received hundreds of thousands of dollars in financing from Big Pharma.  Each one of these candidates is already bought and sold by the Big Pharma Cartel.  None of these candidates can be counted on to make the right decisions when it comes to the Big Pharma Cartel.

Recently the Senate confirmed a new director of the FDA—Dr.  Robert  Califf.

I have two words for this confirmation:  Oy vey.

Dr. Califf is the epitomy of the Big Pharma Cartel insider.  (Note—the next bit of info was taken from,  A disclosure statement on the website of Duke Clinical Research Institute says “Robert M. Califf, MD, reports receiving research grant support from Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson/Scios, Lilly, Merck, and Schering-Plough, and consulting fees from Annenberg, Aterovax, Bayer / Ortho-McNeil, BMS, Boehringer Ingelheim, GSK, WebMd /, Johnson and Johnson / Scios, Kowa Research Institute, McKinsey & Company, Medtronic, Merck, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Sanofi-Aventis, and Schering-Plough, and has an equity position with NITROX, LLC.”
