Toothless tigers and "tort reform"

by Robert B. Reich

The American Prospect

12/22/04

The White House says the Food and Drug administration is doing a 'spectacular' job. Really? The FDA didn't respond to warning signs that block-buster painkillers like Celebrex and Vioxx increased the risk of heart attacks. Worse yet, its own drug-safety officer says the agency suppressed his research showing the apparent dangers of Vioxx.

... 'Spectacular?' I don't think so. In fact, one might conclude that the Food and Drug Administration is failing in its core mission to protect consumers from harm. It's a toothless tiger." [editor's note: Reich is characteristically unaware of the difference between an industry-based certification entity (Underwriters Laboratories) and the usual fedgov burEAUcracy that is only reactive rather than proactive in its "chewing" - SAT]
