CDC says there have been 3 more deaths from meningitis outbreak, bringing the death toll to 28

Romney’s lax regulation may have fueled meningitis outbreak

The fatal meningitis epidemic sweeping the United States can now be traced to the failure of then-Gov. Mitt Romney to adequately regulate the Massachusetts pharmaceutical company that is being blamed for the deaths.

At least 344 people in 18 states have been infected by the growing public health crisis and 25 have died so far.

But the epidemic may also play a role in the presidential campaign, now that state records reveal that a Massachusetts regulatory agency found that the New England Compounding Co., the pharmaceutical company tied to the epidemic, repeatedly failed to meet accepted standards in 2004 — but a reprimand was withdrawn by the Romney administration in apparent deference to the company’s business interests.

“It goes all the way up to Mitt Romney,” said Alyson Oliver, a Michigan attorney representing victims of the outbreak. According to Oliver, on at least six occasions, NECC was cited by authorities for failure to meet regulatory standards and almost subjected to a three-year probation. “It goes directly to the heart of what Romney says about regulation, ‘Hands off. Let the companies do their thing.’”

The fallout from a deadly meningitis outbreak continues as Florida suspends operations at one compounding pharmacy, while a report finds state oversight of the facilities lacking.

(CNN) -- The company at the center of a deadly meningitis outbreak was warned by its own environmental monitors of bacterial contamination of its facility months before the first cases were reported, a government report said Friday.

Mold, and in some cases, an overgrowth of bacteria was detected in different areas of the New England Compounding Center's two "clean rooms" nearly 90 times since January, the Food and Drug Administration report said.

“When the person who is supposed to be in charge of oversight does not believe oversight is necessary, this is what happens,” Oliver added.

“The philosophy of the Romney administration was to have lax regulations across the board,” Philip Johnston, a former secretary of health and human services in Massachusetts before the Romney administration, told Salon. “It speaks volumes about the tragic outcome of Romney’s view on regulatory issues. There are two dozen people who died needlessly. It was clearly the responsibility of the company to protect them, but it was also the responsibility of the government at various levels, and, as far as I’m concerned, they failed.”

On Oct. 28, Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., called for “a full investigation” into the regulatory issues that led to the epidemic. “There’s a regulatory black hole here,” he said, “but the full assessment of responsibility, state to federal, is ongoing. We need to know everything.”

Romney may have been initially responsible and lax towards regulations as he did with the criminal justice system, others also died due to that (children) as murderers were let out of jail by a made up parole system.

However, Romney has been gone for years and the Governor of the state, Obama's friend has been in for years now and has had every opportunity to check into all issues. Perhaps he should have spent more time doing so rather than traveling for Obama, etc. They both take blame. Now 28 people are dead not 25 and many many are ill. Physicians were complaining, people complain about many issues. He is another Chicago person relocated in Massachusetts, Romney is not from Massachusetts either by the way. They see the state as a stepping stone to which makes the state weaker.

If you look at Massachusetts they probably top the list for Democrats that simply will not retire. Now ask yourselves this one thing:

Why are any government jobs state or federal going to those who are very well off when others need those jobs? They say they know people need jobs but then take jobs they honestly do not need (income wise) when they could step down and let others that do need jobs an opportunity? That goes for all of them: Frank, Kerry, Pelosi, Clintons, Nelsons, you name them-they honestly do not need these jobs yet steal those opportunitys from everyone else.

I have 3 points:

#1: I respect DoorBert, and also find him to be very even-handed when reporting info. Therefore, where ever he came up with the info, I believe it is out there, and being reported as it came to us.

#2: I don't believe Romney meant there should be NO monitoring/regulation of companies...just that they should be regulating themselves. It certainly should not be the GOVERNOR's job to regulate companies....there are deputies/departments for that. Was this part of their job, and did someone NOT do their job?

#3: I believe this is another underhanded, dirty, filthy trick by the Obama administrationt to PIN ANYTHING on their opponment in an effort to WIN, just throw it out there and see what sticks.

Did you even read the post? "Investing" was not mentioned, although it would be interesting to know if he had any interests (financial) in the company.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4428411


I would hardly say that regulating compound pharmacies as "going all 1984". We can strike a balance with regulation while not going all 1984. Remember that these people died because a company that was sighted 90 times was allowed to continue to make drugs with mold and excess bacteria in the vials.

I agree that we can't blame it all on Romney. However, I do think he is way too soft on regulation. His idea about getting rid of FEMA is crazy. Can you imagine how well that would have worked with the damage that Sandy caused?

Sounds like this is a recent problem. The FDA had found issues but the problems apparently weren't resolved. Romney hasn't been Governor since 2007. If regulations were a problem why didn't his successor change them? Regulations are not a panacea. Problems can still occur regardless of how suffocating the web of laws is made. This seems like a rehash of the "its Bush's fault mantra"
