I don’t often talk politics here. Unfortunately, politics permeates every single aspect of our lives whether we like it or not, largely thanks to lobbyist money. Ken Paxton is our Texas Attorney General. He is considered to be the most conservative and aggressive Attorney General in all 50 states, and he has been under strong attack for most of this year.
Big Pharma money is arguably among the most powerful lobby groups in both National and State Govt. I’m sure Pfizer and Tris Pharma have been aware of this pending lawsuit for quite some time, and you know they are fighting back in one of the most effective ways they can (money). While I don’t yet have any proof, I’d bet my left foot that some of their money encouraged the sham impeachment trial aimed to sideline Ken Paxton.
Every time a drug manufacturer is successful in:
1. Getting a vaccine on the Childhood vaccination schedule
2. Getting a drug on the TAXPAYER FUNDED Medicaid reimbursement list,
….. they have succeeded in two things. They have CREATED the problem (PLEASE, go do some research on the role the current vaccination schedule plays in creating ADD/ADHD in children), and They then “create” the solution. What just happened? They made billions in the process at the expense of the health and/or the bank accounts of all of us.
Excerpt from AG Ken Paxton’s press release:
” Pfizer contracted with Tris, a drug manufacturer, to produce a pediatric attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder medication (“ADHD”), Quillivant XR. Pfizer knowingly distributed Quillivant to children on Medicaid despite the drug’s pattern of failing quality control tests due to flawed manufacturing practices. For years, Tris altered the drug’s testing method in violation of federal and state laws to ensure Quillivant passed regulatory hurdles and could continue to be sold.
Despite knowing about these serious problems, Pfizer misrepresented to the Medicaid program that Quillivant complied with federal and state law and concealed from Medicaid decision-makers the fact that Quillivant was an adulterated drug. As a result of these misrepresentations and concealments, Pfizer and Tris obtained the benefit of taxpayer-funded Medicaid reimbursement for Quillivant. “
As a rule, people don’t like politics. I don’t either. It’s a dirty business unless people of light step in and shine light in the dirty corners. We owe it to ourselves to get involved and at least support BIGLY the people who DO have our best interests at heart. Get to know your candidates AND the current politicians at the local, state, and national levels. Know what they stand for, and know who they take money from. Follow the money.
Don’t think for a moment Big Pharma has our best interests at heart. They do not. If money (and lots of it) weren’t involved, there would be zero altruism in that industry. It’s not wrong to make money. Money in the hands of good people can do good things…. just like money in the hands of bad people can do horrific things.
Rely on your body and on the gifts God gave us. He has given us the ability to heal. He has given us an immune system that needs TLC.
