From the 1920's to the 1970's liberal medicine headed up the most distinct and vile atrocities against the poor and minorities of America. Just off the top of my brain I remember learning about the Tuskegee Experiments sponsored by the US Health Service, Sterilizations of minorities and the so called genetically unfit under the auspices of Eugenics and "fitter family" policies, experiments by Marion Sims on female slaves, Dr Leo Staley of San Quentin Prison and his testicle implants, US Army Docs and a Harvard Doc in the Philippines infected tribal members with plague and cholera, Rockefellar, Michigan university injected mental patients with influenza, Stateville Prison Malaria Study again a university of Chicago endeavor with US Army and State Dept, this Malaria study was cited by Nazis during Nuremburg trials, Louisiana State Board of Health tested sulfuric acid as food addative on black prisoners, Iowa "Monster" project on children, and the list goes on forever just about.

From 1988 to 2008, the number of overseas clinical trials for drugs intended for American consumption increased by 2,000%, to approximately 6,500 trials.
Why would we ever let the Fed be in charge of medicine in this country?, and are we really surprised that earlier today Senator Harry Reid said he cared more about furloughed military in Nevada than kids with cancer....talk about foreshadowing and not learning from our past.
