AstraZeneca, The Policy Pimps Of Medicaid Fraud

A precious gem I have discovered!

This is an excellent specimen of pathological propaganda. In 2004, AstraZeneca, LP, a pharmaceutical corporation, sponsors a symposium with a university to reshape Medicaid. The main focus was on mental health and children, not on quality of life but to increase funding to expand eligibility for drugs.

That's right, boys and girls, a drug company pays off a university to get Congress to pay more money for their drugs. This is tangent to the practice of ghostwriting in medical literature.

These cats were so good at manipulating public policy to make more money that they even got former Michigan Governor John Engler, the king of privatization, to come and support their agenda. For those of you who may not know, Governor Engler was the individual who established the nation's first privatized child welfare system. As a result, Medicaid fraud has been astronomical. Here is a sample of his work.

Without further adieu, I present to you, a hallmark in the history of Medicaid fraud child welfare!

 The Future of Medicaid: What Will Medicaid Look Like in 2010?

What makes this so-called "Medicaid vision" so entertaining is that it is now 2010 and look at what the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General caught AstraZeneca, LP doing..."wrongfully and illegally marketing" their drugs

I am not sure as I have yet to investigate, but I believe the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was allowing Medicaid to pay for the experimental drug trials on foster kids for AstraZeneca, LP. Even so, Medicaid pays for using foster kids as lab rats.

In the end, the only lesson I am trying to teach is that it is time for transparency and accountability. No more secrets.


AstraZeneca's policy pimping only gets funnier. Utah's Attorney General Shurtleff wants his money back. I wish the other States would follow suit.
