Bush and Vioxx?

How about that Vioxx scandal? Official estimates that as many as 100,000-150,000 people unnecessary had heart attacks due to the risks that were never disclosed to the public. And of course, business interests pressure scientists to give results that are in the interest of the business, as a news item this week mentioned. How could the situation possibly be worse? I didn't think it was possible to make such a situation worse -- selling people poison that kills them, marketed as medicine. But now Bush has made it harder for class-action lawsuits against companies by passing a bill limiting such power. Of cousre Bush cowtows to big business. Expect many more needless deaths due to the corps hunger for power and profit.
