With all the proof that this company disregarded federal and state laws and regulations to protect the consumer, what is there to consider and vote on?  Is this an attempt to see if the GOP party will side step their official policy to oppose all regulations and restrictions upon any business that hinders their profit margin? 

This is exactly what we get and should expect when a party goes out and denounces all regulations on business as bad and vows to deregulate everything in the name of capitalism.  After all, it should only be the consumer who decides if they should buy something from a company and it is only about supply and demand.  If a company is behaving poorly, then let the people decide not to buy from them.  The GOP founding belief that government should be out of the lives of business and every man for himself is what prevails here.

Kevin Outterson, an associate professor of health law and bioethics at Boston University, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics said:

"What we’re talking about, there was a series of regulatory actions taken by the Mass State Board of Pharmacy in 2002 and 2006, when Mitt Romney was governor, which decided not to file a consent decree, which would have caused a lot of scrutiny of this pharmacy.

And they pulled back, despite the investigator’s suggestion, you know, recommendation to file a consent decree, and we really don’t know much about the political lobbying effort that went on behind the scenes on that.

We also have, you know, publicly reported as well the donations from one of the owners of this pharmacy (Conigliaro) in a fundraiser not that long ago for Senator Scott Brown at one of the owner’s houses. So there’s just a lot of, you know, politics that goes into regulating an industry like this."

If Conigliaro was running fundraisers for Brown this year you have to wonder if he was doing the same thing for Romney when he was running for Governor.
