Catching up on Conflict of Interest news. Please make it stop.

A little end-of-the-year clean up of desk clutter never hurts.  Well, yes it does when you see the accumulation of health care confilct of interest stories that have piled up recently.  I had started this cleanup at the end of 2012 but am just now getting around to publishing it.

(Excerpt:  “This is precisely the behavior which, quite rationally, makes the citizenry so jaded about Washington. It’s what ensures that the interests of the same permanent power factions are served regardless of election outcomes. It’s what makes a complete mockery out of claims of democracy. And it’s what demonstrates that corporatism and oligarchy are the dominant forms of government in the US.”)
