“Bernie Sanders Attacks the 21st Century Cures Act and Pharmaceutical Industry ‘Greed’”


“At a time when Americans pay, by far, the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, this bill provides absolutely no relief for soaring drug prices,” Bernie Sanders said in the statement. “The greed of the pharmaceutical industry has no limit, and this bill includes numerous corporate giveaways that will make drug companies even richer… It’s time for Congress to stand up to the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies, not give them more handouts.”

  1. Sanders and Warren still don’t oppose the Murphy sections of “Cures,” however; in fact Warren considers Murphy a “bipartisan mental health reform bill” that is also being “held hostage” by Pharma. But we need to support efforts to get it defeated by any means necessary.

  2. There is no anti-psychiatry movement. Being here on MIA makes this obvious. We need to organize and act. We must put out a 100% anti-psychiatry, anti-therapy, anti-healing, anti-drug message, and also a message which promises resistance to forced procedures, using any means necessary. Doctors and parents must be sued and prosecuted, and children must be protected.

  3. Ignore the spam if you will.

    Again, starting tomorrow people need to call their Senators to request they OPPOSE THE 21ST CENTURY CURES BILL BEING APPENDED TO HR 34. That’s all you need to say, unless you want to say more. It’s much easier than blocking streets & getting beat up (though that could come later).

    On Sunday, December 4, 2016 at 9PM Eastern, call in to (267)521-0167 to be part of the program. This is an urgent call for you to speak out to your legislators.

    TO LISTEN IN LIVE: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/talkwithtenney/2016/12/05/emergency-senate-vote-on-amendment-to-hr-34-is-near-ideas-for-legislators

    On this show, Yvonne Smith, Lauren Tenney, and others will discuss things that you can talk about with your Senators AND Representatives concerning the scam of amending the Tsunami Warning, Education, and Research Act of 2015 H.R. 34 as the 21st Century #CuresAct amendment, which includes awful versions of the Murphy Bills and multiple other bills that Senators are still attempting to amend before a vote. They are pushing this through and if you can believe, Senators are even still adding amendments.

    Senate will take up the proposed amendments on Monday, December 5, 2016, or earlier.



  5. Call BOTH your Senators BEFORE NOON TODAY (Monday). Tell them to OPPOSE THE 2!ST CENTURY CURES ACT BEING APPENDED TO H.R. 34. FURTHER, tell them you want MURPHY’S SO-CALLED “MENTAL HEALTH” PROVISIONS FROM HR 4626 REMOVED from the “Cures” package.
