Free Lipitor, Viagra, other drugs for jobless
TRENTON, N.J. – . is unveiling a new program Thursday that will let people who have lost their jobs and health insurance keep taking some widely prescribed Pfizer medications — including Lipitor and Viagra — for free for up to a year.
The world’s biggest drugmaker will provide more than 70 of its at no cost to unemployed, uninsured Americans, regardless of their prior income, who lost jobs since Jan. 1 and have been on the Pfizer drug for three months or more.
The announcement comes amid massive job losses caused by the recession and a campaign in Washington to rein in health care costs and extend coverage. The move could earn Pfizer some goodwill in that debate after long being a target of critics of drug industry prices and sales practices.
The program also likely will help keep those patients loyal to Pfizer brands.

While the Senate voted to give Timothy Geithner the top job at the Treasury, 60-34, despite his failure to pay taxes for four years, 55000 employees lost their jobs in a two hour period. Those announcing job cuts today included Caterpiller, Sprint, Pfizer, and Home Depot. These follow Bank of America’s layoff announcement last week and the closing of Circuit City.
Caterpiller’s layoffs follow this past summer’s credit problems where despite their perfect credit rating they could not get the renewal of the regular credit line.
Rush Limbaugh, sitting in the ominous position of being a United States citizen who is under verbal attack from the President of the United States, has issued a positive challenge to President Barack Obama. Based on the 52-54% of the electorate vote that Obama received, Limbaugh has suggested that the Obama administration use that percentage of the $825 billion dollar price tag on their ideas, such as the renovations to the National Mall and the funds to stop the spread of STD’s. The balance of the package will be utilized in the manner taht the Republican’s are suggesting, primarily in tax cuts. Limbaugh says that he is positive that the Republicans will prevail.
With all the money troubles at home, why are we spending money in foreign lands to provide abortions!
