Pfizer CEO Went “All In”: Bets the Whole Company on ObamaCare

Pfizer CEO Jeffrey Kindler…is a case study in the hitch-and-hope mentality—a CEO who became the motivating force behind Big Pharma’s $80 billion “deal” on reform, and industry support of ObamaCare. With that health agenda burning, the choice isn’t looking so grand…

 The CEO made no fewer than five trips to the White House last year. He was the man prodding Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America head Billy Tauzin every step.

  1. Bruce says:

    Hitch-and-hope deserves to fall on his face.

  2. Tom H. says:

    I can’t think of a punishment severe enough to match the enormity of this crime.

  3. Bart says:

    They deserve to be nationalized. Unfortunately, this would hurt all the rest of us.

  4. Ken says:

    Why couldn’t we nationalize them and then resell them to the private sector?

    It’s the “resell to the private sector” that “we” usually have trouble with. Lots of times it doesn’t happen without a shooting war.

    Just fire the guy. Simple no muss, no fuss, private sector solution.

  6. Neil H. says:

    I propose that we start a national boycott of Pfizer until Kindler is gone.

  7. Larry C. says:

    Good idea. Let’s boycott them.
