The individuals who were responsible for the contamination are the only ones who should be punished. There is no logical reason to create a stereotype on the issue, and punish others. There should be no change in Medicare coverage unless the problem is systemic.

Wow… blame Medicare? Let’s blame crooked and disgusting people who should be in jail for killing people instead! Why is the the freezing of assets even an issue that has to go to court… just close the place and freeze assets automatically so that there can be victim compensation and payback for the costs involved.

This should be a reminder that regulations/regulators have been targeted to be removed by such “leaders” as Romney… to lessen Government controls (which also means a free for all to get even richer for types like Romney)

The FDA is actually too small and inefficient. It ‘regulates’ by allowing ‘self regulation’ until a problem like this occurs. Some drugs are allowed and not even tested for 10 years for efficacy! If anything, Americans should be advocating for real regulation crackdowns, nad more regulators so this shoddy and shady type of business is stopped before it becomes rich on the taxpayers dime.
