There is legislation in Congress that is considered ‘must pass.’ These are bills of such vital importance that there is virtually total agreement on their importance to protecting the safety of the American public.
- · Random and ill-founded seizures of legitimate prescription medicines by Customs Inspectors, extending even to intimidation of the Elderly persons, who were denied their vital medicines by the seizures, by demanding that they sign letters prepared by Customs in which the Seniors purchasing the medicine ‘admitted’ to being ‘guilty’ of importing ‘illegal’ medicines.
- · Attemptsto deter personal importation by attempting to lump prescription medicines fromoutside the US as ‘bogus’ and potentially dangerous to the health of Americans.
Attempts by PhRMA to co-opt legislation in the same manner that it dealt with a White House so desperate to enact a legacy bill that it violated the positions and principles that the American public embraced in Candidate Obama in 2008, must be opposed by the American public, who hopefully will rally in opposition to continued efforts at power grabs by unelected bureaucrats claiming the right to interpret implementation of legislation that could drastically affect the personal health and well-being of untold numbers of Americans.
Let's hope their legislators heed the sentiments of American citizens and not those of PhRMA.
