“FDA, Audit for profit organization. As the FDA and CDER received financial support from congress through tax payer's money they also equally charge out rages audit fees and seminar fees. For example, 4 times a year they enter into a facility, with 5 auditors for 5 days charging a total of approximately $260,000 to one company. This pays $50,000 to each auditor to work 20 days with $10,000 for expenses. I questioned why to a senior vice president the answer was "pay or be shut down". Why doesn't the AP or Huffington Post investigate these areas for mob attitude?”

“Before the complaint, of the GOP/Conservatives/Tea Party, was AGAINST the unemployed claiming they were mooching off the system and receiving "handouts" from the government at the expense of the taxpayer.

“You're not understand the law. The mandate applies to people who CAN afford health insurance, but choose not to, then if something happens to them we the taxpayers have to pay higher premiums to cover the cost. It's called "personal responsibility", or as Newt Gingrich stated in 2008, "There's no such thing as a free lunch." It was the Republicans who had the idea of individual mandate in the first place!”
