Obama Administration Has Issued Stay to Stop Pending Preemption Rules

In a blog entry on the Huffington Post website (1/28) Les Weisbrod writes, “It has become devastatingly clear that the drug and medical device companies will do just about anything to make a buck, regardless of the effect on public health and safety. And the FDA is unable to police an industry that time and time again has engaged in dubious tactics and put lives at risk.” Weisbrod writes, “The Bush administration decided that since the FDA approved the drug or medical device, the manufacturer should be immune” and “preemption is not some hypothetical concept, but has real-world consequences.” He adds that “preemption language has been silently inserted into regulations regarding mattresses, the roof crush strength of your car, and railroads carrying hazardous materials.” Weisbrod concludes, “Thankfully, the Obama administration issued an immediate stay on Tuesday to stop pending rules, many of which included preemption language.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
