Bill Moyer: Amgen given $500,000,000 dollar provision in the fiscal cliff deal...



...in an 11th hour sweet-heart deal, behind the scenes.
Amgen agreed to pay a $762-milllion criminal settlement just prior to this.
Amgen has 74 lobbyists on Capitol Hill.

Great interview with an inside look on lobbyists, etc.

Very sad day for America.
Maybe this is why the Republicans always take these situations to the last minute, or "fiscal cliff."

4. Republicans will insist this corporate welfare be paid for by reduction in benefits

to social security and Medicare: I'm betting they will be successful, for that's how a corporatist government operates.
