Ralph Nader on Secret White House Agreements with the Drug Industry

By Democracy Now!

What we'll end up with is another patchwork piece of legislation, allowing huge and expanded profits for the health insurance companies and the drug companies, and continuing this pay-or-die system that has plagued this country for decades, a system that takes 20,000 lives a year, according to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. That's about fifty to sixty people who die every day.

That's six lobbyists for each of the 535 members of the House and Senate, according to Senate records, and three times the number of people registered to lobby on defense.

"Sensitive" Oil Industry Memo Lays Out Plan For Astroturf Rallies Against Climate Change Bill

Zachary Roth, Talking Points Memo: "A leaked memo sent by an oil industry group reveals a plan to create astroturf rallies at which industry employees posing as 'citizens' will urge Congress to oppose climate change legislation. The memo - sent by the American Petroleum Institute and obtained by Greenpeace, which sent it to reporters - urges oil companies to recruit their employees for events that will 'put a human face on the impacts of unsound energy policy,' and will urge senators to 'avoid the mistakes embodied in the House climate bill.'"
