Congressional Pharmacist Spills SHOCKING Secret


>>FOR A NUMBER OF DECADES
MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE HAD ACCESS TO A LITTLE-KNOWN CLINIC
AND PHARMACY RIGHT NEXT TO THE HOUSE OF REP IS AND IF THAT IS
RUN THROUGH A MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM. THROUGH THIS CLINIC
THEY CAN GAIN EASY ACCESS TO DRUGS VERY CLOSE TO THEIR PLACE
OF WORK WITHOUT FOR THE MOST PART HAVING TO DEAL WITH REGULAR
PEOPLE OR HAVE IT BE CLEAR THAT THEY ARE GOING FOR THESE DRUGS
OR THINGS LIKE THAT. THIS BY ITSELF IS NOT NECESSARILY ALL
THAT IMPORTANT OR INTERESTING, BUT RECENTLY THE PHARMACIST AT
THAT LITTLE PHARMACY HAS COME OUT AND TALKED ABOUT SOME OF THE
PRESCRIPTIONS HE HAS BEEN GIVING, WITHOUT BEING TOO
SPECIFIC. WE WANT TO GIVE YOU INFORMATION ABOUT THE CLINIC AND
ALSO THE CONSEQUENCES, LEGISLATIVELY, COMING OUT OF THE
CLINIC –>>
>>FOR A NUMBER OF DECADES NOW MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE HAD ACCESS TO A LITTLE-KNOWN CLINIC
AND PHARMACY VERY CLOSE TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES THAT IS
RUN THROUGH A MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM. THROUGH THIS CLINIC THEY CAN
GAIN EASY ACCESS TO DRUGS, VERY CLOSE TO THEIR PLACE OF WORK,
WITHOUT HAVING TO DEAL WITH REGULAR PEOPLE AND THINGS LIKE
THAT. THIS BY ITSELF IS NOT
NECESSARILY ALL THAT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT OR
INTERESTING. BUT RECENTLY THE PHARMACIST AT
THAT LITTLE PHARMACY HAS COME OUT AND TALKED A LITTLE
BIT ABOUT SOME OF THE PRESCRIPTIONS THAT HE HAS BEEN
GIVEN. WITHOUT BEING TOO SPECIFIC ñ YOU
WANT TO HAVE A VERY CLOSE IN CASE THERE IS A PROBLEM. IT MAKES SENSE AT THAT POINT
THAT THEY HAD IT. IT MAKES LESS SENSE NOW WHEN
THERE IS A CVS ON EVERY CORNER. NOW THERE ARE MANY PRESCRIPTIONS
THAT A PERSON CAN GET. THE AVERAGE AMERICAN DIET IS
TREMENDOUS, SO IT IS OUR NATURAL DESTINY THAT WE WOULD
END UP ON VARIOUS FORMS OF DRUGS AT SOME POINT IN OUR LIFE. BUT THERE ARE WAYS THAT MAKE YOU
STOP AND MAKE YOU THINK A LITTLE BIT. THIS IS MIKE KIM, THE PHARMACIST
TALKING ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCES.>>MIKE KIMIS DEFINITELY GOING
TO GET IN TROUBLE.>>YEAH, MAYBE HE HASN’T BROKEN THE LAW
BUT I WOULD TAKE A VACATION.>>I’M NOT CONCERNED THAT HE
BROKE THE LAW ñ HE DIDN’T SAY REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT. THE ONE EXAMPLE HE GAVE WAS NOT
RELATED TO ANY ALZHEIMER’S, HE GAVE THE EXAMPLE OF JOHN
CAREY WHO IS A DEMOCRAT. HE SAID HE CAME IN THE DAY AFTER
HE LOST THE ELECTION. ISN’T THAT AMAZING, THAT GUY
COULD’VE BEEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE NEXT DAY HE IS A SCHLEP
WAITING IN LINE FOR HIS DRUGS AT THE PHARMACY. I LOVE THAT ABOUT AMERICA. I WISH THAT WOULD HAPPEN MORE. IT IS NOT POLITICAL IN THAT
SENSE, NOR DO I THINK IT IS A VIOLATION OF LAW. BUT I JUST FEEL BAD
FOR HIM.>>SO I ORIGINALLY SAW THIS ñ
THE COMMENTS WERE ALMOST UNIVERSALLY
APPARENTLY CONSERVATIVE. THAT IS WHAT YOU’RE SCARED OF,
THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO POWER OR ABILITY TO ENACT THE LAW? WHAT
ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE ACTUALLY PASSING THE BILLS? I’M
NOT EVEN GOING TO NAME NAMES BUT LET’S THINK BACK TO SOME
POLITICAL EVENTS OF THIS YEAR, WHERE THERE ANY REPUBLICANS WHO
HAD WEIRD DIFFICULTIES EXPRESSING THEMSELVES AND
REMEMBERING THINGS? I’M JUST SAYING. YOU HEAR ALZHEIMER’S ñ
MY GRANDFATHER ACTUALLY IS PRETTY DEEP IN ALZHEIMER’S AT
THIS POINT. IS A VERY DEBILITATING AND SAD
CONDITION THAT AFFECTS A LOT OF AMERICANS. BUT WE DON’T KNOW THAT THEY ARE
AT THE DEEP END. MAYBE THEY ARE JUST AT THE VERY
BEGINNING. I LOOKED UP THE EARLY STAGES OF
ALZHEIMER’S, HERE ARE SOME OF THE EFFECTS IT HAS. PROBLEMS COMING UP WITH THE
RIGHT WORD OR NAME, FIND. TROUBLE REMEMBERING NAMES,
CHALLENGES PERFORMING TASKS IN SOCIAL OR WORK SETTINGS,
FORGETTING MATERIAL THAT ONE HAS READ, LOSING OR MISPLACING
OBJECTS, INCREASING TROUBLE WITH PLANNING OR ORGANIZING. THOSE ARE THINGS, IT DOES NOT
TAKE A BIG LEAP OF LOGIC TO LEARN HOW THAT AFFECTS A PERSON. REALLY FAST, AS JAYAR JACKSON
POINTED OUT THE ONLY THING SAVING US HERE IS THAT NONE OF
THESE REPRESENTATIVES OR SENATORS ACTUALLY MAKE UP THEIR
OWN MIND. THEY JUST VOTE THE WAY THEIR
DONORS TELL THEM TOO, SO PERHAPS ALZHEIMER’S DOESN’T REALLY
MATTER AT THE END OF THE DAY. BUT IT IS STILL WORRISOME.>>TO BE FAIR THE PHARMACY
ALSO SERVICES STAFFERS, LOBBYISTS, AND FAMILY MEMBERS. SO NOT EVERYBODY GETTING
ALZHEIMER’S MEDICATION IS IN CONGRESS. BUT VERY LIKELY SOME ARE. STAFFERS ARE YOUNGER, SO THIS
DOES GO TO TO ACTUAL PROBLEMS. ONE IS THAT PEOPLE IN CONGRESS
ARE UNIFORMLY INCREDIBLY OLD ON AVERAGE. DIANE FEINSTEIN JUST SAID SHE IS
RUNNING FOR REELECTION, SHE IS 84. BY THE END OF HER TERM SHE WOULD
BE 90 OR 91. THE REASON IS ONCE YOU HAVE
MONEY AND POWER AND YOU HAVE A GOOD DONOR BASE AND GOOD NAME
RECOGNITION, YOU JUST HANG ON FOR DEAR LIFE. THEY STAY THERE AND THEY ARE
ANCIENT. IN MY OPINION THE CORRUPTION
SETS IN AND IT CALCIFIED. DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE FACT THAT
THEY DON’T REMEMBER THE BILL, THEY DIDN’T READ IT IN THE
FIRST PLACE. REMEMBER THAT TALKING POINT THAT
THE PUBLICANS HAD ABOUT THE DEMOCRATS? YOU DIDN’T READ ABOUT IT
OR DID YOU? LATER ON THEY WENT ON TO SAY
THEY BRAGGED THAT THEY DID NOT EVEN READ THEIR OWN
LEGISLATION. THEY NEVER READ IT.>>THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS I
HAVE TO DO THAT ARE NOT READING.>>THERE IS ONE THING THEY READ,
THE IMA FROM THE DONOR THAT TELLS THEM WHICH WAY TO VOTE. THE ALZHEIMER’S AND FORTUNATELY
IS THE LEAST OF OUR PROBLEMS.
