According to 450 policy makers, PhRMA is the most powerful industry group

 

Capitol-dome-cc

 

The pharmaceutical lobby is the most influential in Washington DC according to a recent survey by APCO Worldwide.

 

PhRMA has a team of influence Jedis. and they have friends everywhere on the Hill. Republican or Democrat, House or Senate, the drug guys know how to get what they want.

They got what they wanted from Obamacare.

(From The Hill)

Respondents in the survey generally agreed that the Pharmaceutical Research Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) — the lobby group for the drug industry — excels in key areas.

PhRMA garnered the most wins in the most categories, voted the best at lobbying, the most effective at having a local and federal presence and the group whose members most frequently “mobilize to contact policymakers.” Respondents in the survey said those were the most important characteristics for a trade association to possess.

How can we feed the world—today and tomorrow?

The biggest players in the food industry—from pesticide pushers to fertilizer makers to food processors and manufacturers—spend billions of dollars every year not selling food, but selling the idea that we need their products to feed the world. But, do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world? Can sustainably grown food deliver the quantity and quality we need—today and in the future? Our first Food MythBusters film takes on these questions in under seven minutes. So next time you hear them, you can too.

There’s a price on YOUR head – Private Prisons Want YOU

US Private prisons want You

There's a price on YOUR head - Private Prisons Want YOU

While economic improvement in the US are slow, it’s still gloom and doom when it comes to the big fiscal picture. Many people are trying to make ends meet in these hard times, but an enormous industry is cashing in.

It’s the business that keeps people behind bars

… Private prison companies, however, essentially admit that their business model depends on locking up more and more people. For example, in a 2010 Annual Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) stated: “The demand for our facilities and services could be adversely affected by . . . leniency in conviction or parole standards and sentencing practices . . . .” As incarceration rates skyrocket, the private prison industry expands at exponential rates, holding ever more people in its prisons and jails, and generating massive profits.

And while supporters of private prisons tout the idea that governments can save money through privatization, the evidence that private prisons save taxpayer money is mixed at best – in fact, private prisons may in some instances cost more than governmental ones. Private prisons have also been linked to numerous cases of violence and atrocious conditions.

Constitution Rising Webinar

0


Imagine a *non-political*, well-funded, locally controlled organization in every state dedicated solely to defending the state and federal Constitutions. Imagine just 3% of Americans joining together to Organize and hold every government official across the nation, from mayor to the President, accountable to the the Rule of Law!

3% x 300 Million of We the People  = 10M real Americans…

If those 10M Americans each contribute $25 toward funding their individually financed, controlled and managed state Constitution Lobby,  we have reached  “critical mass” and secured millions of  $’s to ACT!

Locally controlled $$$ = full time paid professional staff including attorneys, staff, constitutional Monitors and lots of well-organized Constitutional activism to restore Liberty and hold government accountable!
 

This IS the WTP Constitution Lobby project!.
