But Big Pharma Is On Our Side, Right?

After all this time and all the talk about the opposition to ObamaCare being the product of astro-turfing by Big Pharma, it turns out that the pharmaceutical companies may have a dog in this fight after all; but it isn't the dog the Left has been barking about. From Jimmie at the Sundries Shack:

Pharmaceutical companies certainly could seed a bunch of opposition groups
with money, but why in the world would they? The truth is that its in the
best business interests of Big Pharma for Obamacare to pass. Government-set
prices, new regulations that crowd out smaller competitors, and big fat
subsidies all work to their advantage. They get more bang for their bucks
from members of Congress who can return the favor tenfold (or more) and they
don’t have to worry about the pesky pressures from often mercurial consumers
like you and me
.

Big Farms sold out to the government in return for subsidies that pay them not produce food. It makes sense that Big Pharma would sell out for subsidies to pay them not to produce drugs. If ObamaCare passes, the government, not the market, will decide what drugs will be available. By throwing in with Obama, the pharmaceutical companies can play both sides of the field.

Trailer Trash Bill Warner Has Enlisted in the White House Internet Snitch Brigade

Ever since the White House announced the creation of its Internet Snitch Brigade (flag@whitehouse.gov), Americans were waiting for Insane P.I. Bill Warner to join it. And today it finally happened! In "ASSASSINATE BARACK OBAMA PLOTS INCREASE TO 10 RACIST RIGHT WING BLOGGERS FUEL WHITE SUPREMISTS (sic.) SECRET SERVICE SHUT EM DOWN by Bill Warner investigator," Warner writes:

"The US Secret Service so needs to investigate "Muslims Against Sharia by Khalim Massoud and Pamela Geller for her Anti-American racist activities on her website, which she operates out of her Manhattan NY apartment, and her incitement to hate by others and the possible murder of President Barack Obama.

Contact flag@whitehouse.gov and provide information for websites that promote hate and or attacks against the President of the United States Barack Obama.U.S.
Secret Service
New York City Office
335 Adams Street
32nd Floor
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Telephone: (718) 840-1000"

After pretending to file various lawsuits and complaints with the FBI, USSS, County Court, etc., Insane P.I. Bill Warner decided to employ another tactic. He wants the Internet Snitch Brigade to do his dirty work, to defame people who dare to disagree with Warner's demented rants. Could this trailer trash be more of a Nazi?
