Trump's first appointee to be the head of the FDA, Scott Gottlieb, is a board member at Pfizer. He served for two years as commissioner of the FDA. He resigned in March this year and was replaced by Ned Sharpless who is one of the founders of G1 Therapeutics, a publicly traded bio-pharmaceutical company. The foxes have been given keys to the chicken coop.

Go look at the last 10 or so FDA appointees and their connections with pharma. Americans haven't cared that they've had the keys for 40 years. The sudden outrage over it now is disingenuous.

I looked up one, asking who was Commissioner under Obama.... and he was a Cardiologist. So if you have info on the subject, a link would be great.

I don't like the first, but the 2nd is common from a multitude of different government agencies to private companies.

You're right. I mean 1 guy was a cardiologist, so that means that everyone is clean. /faceplant.

Take a look at Michael Taylor.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_R._Taylor

Think his hands are clean? Think he cares about your health? He created a product that causes cancer, and then determines which cancer drugs get approved to treat the medical illness he created.

Making money hand over fist.

Wake up already.

I ask for her to show me what she was talking about.

Thank you for providing an example.

He worked for:

FDA then,

Dept of AG, then

Monsanto, then

Center for Risk Mgmt. and then back to the FDA.

He is an attorney. I am not for industry people being in charge of Govt agencies, in general terms, too much conflict of interest.

In your guys case, I don't like the 2 time he went to the FDA.
