Congress omitted from the Product Liability Fairness Act 1995, Defective Prescription drugs and Defective Medical Devises.This is discrimination against commerce and/or Contract law. Also discriminates against the Consumers and gives immunity to the drug companies and leaves the public at risk a violation of Equal Protection of the Law. this is a violation of the Health and Human Services committees that are now drafting a new bill to shield the drug manufacturers.

I scanned the summary of this bill & it all looks like a waste of money. Honest, hard-working people will take any job. Don't need millions for training, green jobs, older workers, labor law enforcement, community health centers, substance abuse, etc. We are in economic crisis, why add billions to our debt? We can all do without a lot of handouts; families can help each other. Our poorest citizens are considered wealthy compared to 90% of all other countries. STOP THE WASTE!
