Wouldn’t hardly surprise me that we’ll soon find out this was the fault of George W. Bush. So sad....

or Hillary Rodham

Didn’t she change vaccine manufacture rules during her term as co-president? Any relationship to this?

I’ve been doing some reading and I got to walk back my comment about Hillary.

There is plenty of blame to go around here, stretching back 2 decades or more more.

The problem has been intensifying under this administration, with its ham-handed federal pressures on insurers to cut costs, and in the case of steroids, to manage patients in pain with cheap therapies rather than surgeries or more expensive treatments (”sometimes you got to take a pain pill”).

Lots of lobbying money to congress by insurers and compounders to keep the FDA out of the business of overseeing these compounders with the same rules faced by big pharma (rules that drive up their costs).

Of course everyone now is circling the wagons and going inot “CYA” mode while scrap-snarfing political dingos like Ed Markey (this originated in his district) pretend to turn into legislative rottweilers,

Here is one big case an FDA lawyer is citing to defend their lack of oversight:
