Can’t get enough free meds for the bedroom? The Health and Human Services Dept is mandating that all insurances and employers provide entirely free contraceptives to their employees (and families).
While some are crying that this is a violation of the First Amendment (which it is), there are other serious issues involved that the Daily Beast is uncovering.
This becomes a giant boon for the Pharmaceutical companies. HHS did not require generics, but whatever the patient desires in regards to contraceptives. Suddenly, there will be millions more people getting free brand name meds from the Pharmas. Since there is no co-pay or deductible (HHS mandate), the money is passed directly through the insurance company to the Pharmas, and of course, paid for by taxpayers. IOW, there will be no one screaming that their meds are too expensive, since they are “free!”
This is what Texas governor Perry did with Gardasil, ensuring the $360 injections were given to all young girls in Texas. It was a boon to Merck. For this reason, the Pharmas have promoted Obamacare, to the tune of $600+ million in lobbying.
Can you figure out who the Pharmas supported in the past election between Obama and McCain, and will do again this election year?
Can you say this is a serious, serious danger to have companies bribing politicians in order to get billions in mandated kickbacks and returns?
Can we see how the prophets Isaiah and Nephi warned us about the rich taking from the poor, and making themselves richer? Can we see how some Gadianton Robbers enriched themselves by working inside the government, where the wicked rich (not all rich are wicked) sought gain and were obliged by the bribed in government? Guess what? We’re here again. The Book of Helaman can explain a lot of this stuff.
