Skip to comments.The Administration targets a drug CEO in a troubling precedent.

HHS this month sent a letter to 83-year-old Forest Labs CEO Howard Solomon, announcing it would henceforth refuse to do business with him. What earned Mr. Solomon the blackball? Well, nothing that he didas admitted even by HHS. In any case, the federal complaint contained no suggestion that Mr. Solomon was involved with, or even aware of, misconduct. And the question of his continued leadership was never part of the plea deal. Only after a federal court ratified the deal in March did HHS drop its intent-to-ban bomb. Mrs. Sebelius unearthed a dusty provision in the Social Security Act that allows officials to bar executives of health companies from doing business with the government when the firms are guilty of criminal misconduct.

Every day, “Atlas Shrugged” becomes less prophecy and more reality.
And where is the Republican House committe trotting Sebellius up for a hearing?
Perhaps one of the Big Pharma companies that supported ObamaCare wants to gobble up this little fish. It’s the Chicago Thug Way of getting what you want.
This is the sort of injustice that American patriots detest.
I guess he didn’t donate enough to the DNC.................
The Fascists win because ‘we’ let them win. They start small like a snowball and their misdeeds get bigger and bigger. Eventually all the little people are in thrall to the government. Now is the time for the targets to band together and resist.

That covers all RAT-owned businesses, unions, lobbyists and other assoered perverts.
“What earned Mr. Solomon the blackball?”
Simple. He did not bribe the right Communist officials in the US government.
Ever since the government arrogantly shat upon the GM bondholders in criminal, historically unprecedented fashion, the integrity of our entire financial system has been in question.
This is a big concern for ALL of us, whether you are a day trader or have all your money in ammunition, rice and beans.
“HHS says its action is about holding corporate CEOs accountable, but it looks more like the Administration’s latest bid to intimidate the health-care industry into doing its bidding on prices, regulations and political support for ObamaCare. This is the same agency that has threatened insurers with exclusion from new state-run health exchanges if they raise their premiums more than Mrs. Sebelius wants, or if they spread what she deems to be “misinformation” about the President’s health bill.”
This is all about the company not signing on to 0bamacare.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Bigger checks to the DNC and Obama campaign would probably help.
Who is John Galt?
