Letter: The FDA is run by Big Pharma

Anchorage Daily NewsJuly 9, 2013 

Big Pharma has convinced the FDA that obesity is a disease. They did this because, by law, a disease must be treated with prescription drugs. Get the picture here? Maybe this will help. Exactly 2 days after that “decision”, my insurance went up $900. No warning, no letters to inform me. Nada, but a word from the rep that this will be taken out of the paycheck in 2 increments. Gee thanks, Big Pharma! I really didn’t need that since you’ve already taken $2,000. I like working 20 hours a day and still being unable to pay my bills.

The FDA is run by Big Pharma and the insurance companies, not the government. What can we do about it? Pray to ALEC.
