UPDATED: Attorney Generals Negotiate with Terrorists: Corporate Terrorists VOTE Nov. 4th
Updated: December 31, 2014
Targeting drug/device companies is NOT enough. Not until we quit allowing two known corrupt entities to negotiate behind closed doors on behalf of the American people will positive change occur. The million/billion dollars fines are doing nothing to prevent or deter future crimes; and, NOT until the DOJ is willing to put these criminal CEOs in jail will the industry change positively for “the People.”

Election time! Do you know if your state’s Attorney General is up for election? Do you know why you should care? Candidly, prior to the last few years I really hadn’t given it much thought, that’s changed and here’s why-we’re allowing two known corrupt entities to negotiate on behalf of the American people behind closed doors.
The State’s Attorney General is the one who prosecutes those big federal cases against GM, Toyota, Johnson & Johnson and Bank of America ; and, those big billion dollar
checks fines (wire transfers actually) are nationally announced via the newly resigned US Attorney General Eric Holder who holds an exciting press conference and the government sends out a press release with #PRSPin to let the American people know that they’ve taken money from corrupt companies. The only problem with that is that “We the People” never really know where all these billions are going other than into the hands of the corrupt government. Anyone remember IRS $50 million line dancing meetings? Or this: DOJ spending over $500,000 on a LinkedIn Profile
It’s been stated here before that there’s really no incentive for the government to want to “fix” or prosecute criminally the corrupt companies who act like terrorists as money changes hands, the goverment profits, and executives are free to encourage, replicate and are rewarded for their unethical and illegal behavior while accountability is shifted away from the criminals back to the victims–the American taxpayers.
It’s not until “We the People” vote in Attorney Generals who are willing to force accountability from the companies by putting executives behind bars and banning them for life from holding any executive positions will we create any positive change that will protect patients, consumers, employees and taxpayers alike. And it’s not until the USDOJ provides a transparent breakdowns of where all these billions are allocated will the government be held accountable to those that elected them.
This settlement is part of the ongoing efforts of President Obama’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force and its Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS) Working Group, which has recovered $36.65 billion to date for American consumers and investors.
“As patients and consumers, we have a right to rely upon the claims drug companies make about their products,” said Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Civil Division Stuart F. Delery. “And, as taxpayers, we have a right to ensure that federal health care dollars are spent appropriately. That is why this Administration has continued to pursue aggressively – with all of our available law enforcement tools — those companies that corrupt our health care system.”

They have said that because GM allegedly covered up problems with the switch for more than a decade, and received support from the U.S. government during its bankruptcy, it should not fight against plaintiffs’ attempts to seek payment for their injuries. Reuters
Although Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, wouldn’t comment on the GM investigation, he did issue a clear warning to all automakers about avoiding the same mistakes made by Toyota. CNBC
Also today, the Department of Justice announced a deferred prosecution agreement with TOYOTA (“the agreement”) under which the company admits that it misled U.S. consumers by concealing and making deceptive statements about two safety issues affecting its vehicles, each of which caused a type of unintended acceleration.
