(NaturalNews) Those infamous last words once spoken by Barack Obama — if you own a business that you built from the ground up, you didn’t actually build it — apparently had a lasting effect on some members of Congress. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), seemingly reflective of this sentiment, recently told a conference room full of people that, because the government supposedly helped create pharmaceuticals and vaccines (with taxpayer money), it deserves a kickback every time a drug company is convicted of engaging in criminal behavior.
Rather than chastise the drug industry for committing countless crimes against humanity throughout the course of its existence, Sen. Warren emphasized only increased financial penalties so that the feds can get a larger cut of the spoils following a conviction. Drug companies shouldn’t actually be punished for their crimes, in other words, with executives going to prison and licenses being revoked — Sen. Warren thinks there merely needs to be a “swear jar,” of sorts, for when a drug company needs a little time-out to pay the piper.
