It is a well-documented fact that the pharmaceutical industry has more lobbyists on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures than almost any other industry. Multi-national drug companies marketing vaccines and funding medical trade organizations, which have their own lobbyists as well, are some of the most clever marketers on the planet. They know how to leverage their resources by donating money to politicians, who will vote for legislation that give them an unfair advantage in the marketplace.
One tactic is to push through legislation that will eliminate their competition. We’ve seen this repeatedly in all sorts of legislative attacks on anyone associated with alternative health, whether the laws backed by pharmaceutical corporations are aimed at stamping out alternative health care options, or the legislation is designed to encourage regulatory attacks on the availability of vitamins and other kinds of holistic health supplements.
Such legislation favoring pharmaceutical companies is typically implemented through enactment of regulatory laws that are carried out by federal regulatory and policymaking agencies like the FDA and the CDC. State legislation that threatens to take away or restrict the ability of citizens to obtain medical, religious and conscientious or philosophical belief exemptions to mandatory vaccination laws is another way drug companies and Pharma-funded medical trade associations protect their bottom line by forcing everyone to buy and use vaccines.
So why is it not okay for the CDC to promote “friendly competition” among doctors’ offices and individual office’s staff members to see who can boost vaccination rates the most?
I believe it’s very difficult to defend such tactics because what it really boils down to is bribery using taxpayer money.
Another factor that warrants mentioning is the use of fear to promote the purchase and use vaccines. Fear is the hidden side of these competition- and financially-driven incentives the CDC is using to promote high vaccination rates by pressuring doctors to become drug company sales reps. While “good” doctors are rewarded in a myriad of ways for increasing vaccination rates (i.e. selling more vaccines), doctors, who fail to comply, can face a less pleasant future. They not only risk being reprimanded or fired by their employers, but could also be reported and get into trouble with the medical board for being “bad” doctors if they don’t aggressively sell vaccines to all patients.
It’s important to understand that the foundation of corruption is all about bribery, and bribery involves giving a gift with monetary value to somebody, who makes a decision on behalf of the public. Certainly, doctors have tremendous influence over their patients, and providing gifts/incentives to doctors to sell more vaccines is not really in the public’s best interest… Health factors such as individual biological susceptibility to vaccine damage is completely ignored in this scenario—the only thing that counts as “good” is increasing overall vaccine use by all patients.
