The White House press secretary now says that the “
The president has this swell deal worked out with drug companies to save $80 billion over ten years. Huge episode. So, it sounds so good that he workd this out....maybe he could talk to McDonalds and get a $40 billion savings over ten years with burgers too? Maybe a chat with Pepsi to get a $25 billion savings there over ten years? Maybe a septic tank replacement savings of $1 billion over ten years? I mean, if this is all possible....just sitting down and chatting with guys....why not spread this around?
Then I came to ask a Bama question....if you were giving up $80 billion in savings.....this means a $80 billion loss in profits. Naturally, its a pretty dismal thing when you volunteer to take a hit like this. I looked over at drug company stocks today....they are pretty much average. Logic dictates that if you give up profits....then stocks drop like a rock. That didn't happen. Is there a funny smell in the air? Do you smell that? If stock owners aren't worried and stock companies aren't worried.....about losing a massive amount of profit....that can only mean that they didn't lose anything. Think about the deal....you never get nothing for free.
Minneapolis is paying $200k....to get people to drink tap water? When banks are failing, GM is dying, and the unmployment situation is so dire.....they toss $200k to get folks to drink tap water? If you had just put up beer advertisements....you would have recovered a bit of your investment via tax revenue....but tap water?
