Skip to comments.McCaskill asks for investigation into Obama administrationís sole-source vaccine contract
Posted on 11/24/2011 3:33:27 PM PST by ColdOne
Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, has asked The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to review the Obama administrations award of a $443 million sole-source contract to a company owned by a major Democratic donor.
The Los Angeles Times reported earlier this month that the Obama administration has taken unusual steps to procure an experimental smallpox vaccine from a company owned by a major Democratic donor despite concerns from some experts that such a drug was unnecessary and would not be effective.
Citing serious questions about the contract, the Los Angeles Times reported that McCaskill has asked the inspector general of HHS to investigate. McCaskill is the chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Contracting and Oversight.

...even the dems are turning on him
So, readers might be wondering: why would the Ubama Administration tell a corrupt socialist piece of dog feces like McCaskill to ask for this investigation? Here’s a clue: the “investigation” will be handled by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). In other words, the Ubama regime will be investigating itself.
Apparently, the Ubama regime got word that this latest example of its corruption was going to be exposed one way or the other, and so this preemptive strike gives the administration an opportunity to “clean things up” and get stories straight. They are simultaneously buying some time.
This is really nothing more than that. Don’t look for anything serious to be done about Ubama’s corruption. Ubama and the rest of those animals are really, really good at the corruption thing.
Nope. See post #4.
I think she is up for re-election isn’t she?
Two additional names: Dr. Oz and Andy Stern.
McCaskill is up for reelection in Missouri and is trying her best to establish herself as anti Obama.
Notice McCaskill didn’t ask the Senate to investigate anything...
Now it makes sense, thanks.
Sounds about right...
A few months ago there was an Executive Order about this and Andy Stern.
Screw 'em all ... no re-election, especially to the ones that are now acting so patriotic and honest.
They're the most devious and dangerous to our Republic.
she is just trying to CYA

God only knows what they say in private.
Night of the Long Knives
Some key points. The antiviral pill is for smallpox, a disease that only exists in two labs on the planet. The cost is $255 per dose. There is no way to test the effectiveness of the medication. The proposal is to stockpile 300 million doses. The shelf life is three years.
The most "transparent", "ethical" and "truthful" regime in the history of the planet.
Holy toledo - 300,000,000 x $225 = $67,500,000,000 .. that’s money even elected members of Congress might pay attention to!
I don't think this is going to prove anything to the folks in the Show Me State other than Claire showing how desperate she is to get re-elected.
I noticed that.
Thanks Jet Jaguar
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
My husband just remined me that Glenn Beck had stated that Andy Stern left SEIU to join this drug company when things were getting hot with SEIU. This corruption just takes on different hats, but the players are always the same. As for Claire, well I agree she is CYA’ing and knows that Kathleen Sebelius will never do a damned thing about this. Again, we just need to clean the cess pool of DC out before they start injecting us all with crap we pay for, to do us all in! My adult children just heard my rant and think I am totally nuts. Happy Thanksgiving to my FRiends here who get me.
Each Federal Dept. has an Office of Inspector General
(OIG) that conduct internal investigations of allegations of criminal, civil and regulatory violations within the Department. They also conduct external investigations of, for example, contractors who deal with the Department for any alleged violations. The OIGs are autonomous and, by law, cannot be influenced by higher-ups within the Dept. nor by anyone outside of the Dept. within the Executive or Legislative Branches. (At least they’re not supposed to be)
So McKaskill’s request for HHS to conduct an investigation is SOP.
She did not get the memo from the DNC
Somebody told me there's no tooth fairy, either, but I distinctly remember finding a quarter under my pillow the next morning.
When she looks into the Carnahan windpower grant that proceeded Barry’s trip to St. Louis. Then she might get a touch of traction. Otherwise, were these the people who ratted her out on her airplane scam?
Sounds about right. I'd bet serious money any FOIA request about it will now be refused because it's "under investigation".
