While this next article isnt directly related to the core purpose of this thread, at this time with the ramping up of the US elections and the fanfare that surrounds this event, it might be a good time to think about whether this type of political monetary support from some of the industrial giants is actually of benefit and if so then primarily, to whom?

Most people would agree that this really is a self serving practise that often impedes on the best interests of the wider community, and usually serves more or less as a form of bearing unwanted pressures on to our law makers and those whom we rely on to make the best decisions they can on our behalf, but become entangled in conflicts that originate with these practices.

Perhaps its time to ask if this type of practise has enough credibility for it to continue.

Health sector opens purse for US election
Biotech and health industries spend nearly $200 million in record-breaking election cycle.

Adrianne Appel 04 November 2012

Miriam and Sheldon Adelson have donated millions of dollars to political action committees this election season.

A slow economy has not stopped the biomedical industry from spending big on US elections this year. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, a non-partisan group that analyzes political spending, the health sector which includes the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, health insurance providers, hospitals and organizations representing heath care professionals has so far poured more than US$193 million into campaign coffers and political action committees (PACs) in hopes of influencing the 6 November vote.

The record breaking figure is roughly 9% greater than the amount spent by the health sector during the 2008 election that swept US President Barack Obama into the White House. Overall, the sector ranks fifth in spending out of thirteen industry sectors that are monitored by the Washington DC based center.
