What happens when the ‘Average Joe’ gets caught committing a crime? He or she usually gets the book thrown at them, most often spending time in the slammer. However, what happens when “corporations too big to fail” get caught with “their hands in the cookie jar,” so to speak? Not very many folks pay the time, but the corporate treasury pays the fine. Why? Apparently, large sums of money can “absolve corporate sins” time after time after time. One industry that has had enormous fines levied against it is the pharmaceutical industry, also known as Big Pharma.
It is the opinion of this writer that Big Pharma’s corporate largess is too tempting to resist by federal government agencies, and fines work nicely. Pharma’s lobbyists spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year contributing to congressional campaign coffers, which should be outlawed because it is nothing short of bribery—plain and simple. Obviously, a member of Congress will champion a cause – or is ‘morally’ obligated to do so – for the money Pharma’s lobbyists freely hand out.
