Rick Perry and HPV vaccine-maker have deep financial ties

September 14, 2011 by legitgov

Rick Perry and HPV vaccine-maker have deep financial ties 13 Sep 2011 Rick Perry's  gubernatorial campaigns have received nearly $30,000 from Merck since 2000, most of that before he issued his vaccine mandate, which was overturned by the Texas legislature. In 2007, Perry became the first governor in the country to attempt to make the HPV vaccine mandatory. One of Perry's closest confidantes, his former chief of staff Mike Toomey, was then working as an Austin-based lobbyist for Merck, which was in the midst of a multimillion-dollar campaign to persuade states to make the vaccine mandatory. Toomey has since helped found Make Us Great Again, a pro-Perry super PAC that can accept unlimited donations from corporations and wealthy donors. The group plans to raise as much as $55 million to help Perry compete for the GOP nomination, according to media reports.

Use of Private Contractors Doesn't Save Government Money, Study Finds --Federal government spends about $320 billion a year on contracts for services 13 Sep 2011 Despite a widespread belief [fueled by corporate-owned media propoganda] that contracting out services to the private sector saves the federal government money, a new study suggests just the opposite -- that the government actually pays more when it farms out work. The study found that in 33 of 35 occupations, the government actually paid billions of dollars more to hire contractors than it would have cost government employees to perform comparable services. On average, the study found that contractors charged the federal government more than twice the amount it pays federal workers.

C.I.A. Examining Legality of Work With Police Dept. 14 Sep 2011 The Central Intelligence Agency has opened an internal inquiry into whether its close cooperation with the New York Police Department in the decade since the Sept. 11 attacks has broken any laws prohibiting the agency from collecting intelligence in the United States. The C.I.A. is prohibited from gathering intelligence on American soil, but some have criticized its counterterrorism cooperation with law enforcement services as a de facto domestic spying campaign. The head of the Police Department's intelligence unit, David Cohen, is a former C.I.A. official, and the agency has a senior clandestine officer embedded in the New York police force.

Michele Bachmann attacks Rick Perry on Mandatory HPV Vaccines

Michele Bachmann attacks Rick Perry on Mandatory HPV Vaccines 12 Sep 2011 Michele Bachmann accused Rick Perry of using sixth-grade girls as profit engines for a drug company at the CNN/Tea Party Express debate, lacing into the Texas governor for having attempted to mandate the [deadly] HPV vaccine for young teenagers. "To have innocent little 12-year-old girls be forced to have a government injection through an executive order is just wrong," Bachmann said. "Little girls who have a negative reaction to this potentially dangerous drug don't get a mulligan." The Minnesota congresswoman went even further, accusing Perry of handing out favors to a company, Merck, represented by his former top aide, Mike Toomey. "There was a big drug company that made millions of dollars because of this mandate," Bachmann said. "The governor's former chief of staff was the chief lobbyist for this drug company." [Exactly. Texas parents should have said, 'we'll take your shot after you take ours.']

Bush and Obama, Shoulder to Shoulder 12 Sep 2011 On Sunday, for the first time, President Obama and former President [sic] George W. Bush stood together at the site of the Sept. 11 attacks, listening as family members read the names of lost love ones and bowing their heads in silence to mark the moments the planes hit.
