With Trump's HHS Pick Big Pharma Takes Over Our Health System

Justin Mendoza

A typical case of the revolving door of Washington, D.C.

Alex Azar, the former U.S. president of drug giant Eli Lilly and Co. This would put the pharma industry in charge of regulating its own exorbitant prices and it seems likely that his private interests would swamp aspirations towards public service.

What you mean-um “takes over”, Kemo Sabé?  Big Pharma (along with Big Health Insurance and Big Hospital Korporations) has been running “our” Health Care System for decades. The appointment of Azar would merely make it official.

The rank and file membership of both major parties, you mean.  The Fat-Cat elites who run both the RNC
and the DNC, if they were honest, would vehemently disagree with that statement.  Even before ‘Citizens United’, Big Pharma hedged its bets by giving Yuuuge campaign contributions bribes to both parties.

That was during the campaign, when – as ‘everyone’ knows – “you can fool all of the people some of the
time and some of the people all of the time — and those are pretty good odds.”   IIRC, he also promised
not to touch Medicaid or Social Security . . .
