house Bill H.R. 471

Should The Ties Between Big Pharma And Federal Agencies Be Tighter?

Argument in favor

This bill would prevent prescription drug abuse, by creating clear and consistent enforcement standards. Also ensures that patients have access to medications by promoting communication between government agencies, patients, and industry stakeholders.

Thats the whole point behind "Controlled Substance". This bill would prevent prescription drug abuse, by creating clear and consistent enforcement standards.

The DEA doesn't care whether people who are in pain receive the medications needed to help them. Thousands of Americans have died in pain as the result of their jihad against pain medications. Time to take the DEA out of the business of intimidating physicians for helping their patients.

Argument opposed

This legislation was tailor made for drug lobbyists who care a lot more about keeping the stock prices of their drug manufacturing companies high, than they do about solving the ever-increasing problem of prescription drug abuse.

Should make it illegal for a FDA employee to go to work for a pharmaceutical company for at least 5 years. It is amazing how much they get paid when they leave after approving a drug and then go to work for the drug manufacturer.

    Another way for congress to enrich themselves at the expense of the tax payer. Congress is a failure at conducting oversight.

    If someone OD's, illegally sells their prescription, or comes to work high, that's on the individual or the doctor prescribing it to them. Government involvement in our health care has already shown to be a fiasco - why add to it? The government needs to get out everyone's business.

    Big Pharma is already too powerful. I want this special interest groups political donations and influence to be limited if possible.

    Big pharmaceuticals and the federal agencies that regulate them are already lying in the same bed, allowing even closer collaboration would mean even deeper corruption.

    Yes this would help to better monitor the way that drugs are transported and cared after. as a result of this the amount of drug smuggling from pharmaceutical companies and thereby decrease instances of drug abuse and trafficking.
