…But that char grilled taste of deregulated beef just may make you sick; just another value of free market deregulation many are so fond.
Today it is the beef industry with notable outbreaks of E.coli. When will we realize that allowing corporations to regulate themselves is not a good idea? Corporations are creating more sick people for the insurance agents to make more money off illness. It’s all about corporate greed-take short cuts in food safety to make more corporate profit and let the sick people give greater profit to insurance companies. It’s a vicious cycle at the average Americans’ expense.
Here’s the thing America-so many are promoting the reduction of government to put power in the hands of the free market and corporations, but look at what’s happening. Food companies are taking short cuts in food safety at consumer expense for profit, which is in turn is making people sick and making more money for insurance companies. We, the American public are a tool for big business to make a profit. And we wonder why we have a health care crisis in this country.
What is most interesting is; suddenly when stuff like this happens who do many blame-The current administration. Why hasn’t President Obama done anything? Well it was President Bush who ruined the FDA, because big government is bad and big business is oh so good. Now many are crying for President Obama and the government to do something. Which is it? Do you want to be rough-ridden by corporations or do you want ht helping hand of our government? You simply cannot have it both ways; you can’t complain about government intervention one moment and then blame them for something that is not their fault another time. The excuses and rationalizations are not becoming of a nation.
First we have to understand the problem-Greed. It is incessant and is ruining many lives. We Americans have to ask ourselves do we want to be at the mercy of corporations and their profits. I don’t .
