The elected officials behind Texas' abortion ban subsequently received financial support from major corporations, according to new campaign finance filings with the Texas Ethics Commission. Some donations come from the same corporations that purport to support their employees' reproductive rights by paying for out-of-state travel for abortions.

New rules.
1. People who oppose women's reproductive rights are bad, and they are wrong.
2. Politicians/public office holders who oppose women's reproductive rights are bad, and they are wrong, and we should oppose them. Full stop.
3. People who support politicians/public office holders who oppose women's reproductive rights are bad, and they are wrong, and we should call them out and refuse to support them (by commerce or whatever).

Anybody disagree?

There's lots of recent stuff out about Walgreens being shiatty about things like birth control, recently.

Great. The shiatty health insurance company that my company picked for me donates to fascists.

I'd love to have a non-fascist supporting health insurance company, but that would require the United States become a democracy so I guess I'm trapped.

CVS? Based on an earlier thread, this is shocking, truly shocking I tells ya, to learn they are pro-Gilead.

This is why if someone has the guts to set up an independent drugstore I make sure to patronize them. We're in for a world of shiat if the right figures out(seems they are on their way) that they can control reproductive freedom through dominating the pharmacy market so people are dependent on shipping stuff, and who knows how long we'll be able to do that. Next they will pass a law stating that drugs must be shipped to a pharmacy for pickup and they will have the right to not turn them over to the customer for "moral" reasons.

This just in: corporations are single-issue entities.

They give money to whomever will help enrichen them, be it from tax cuts, building up barriers to entry, or just plain old deregulation.

Claiming that giving money to a politician means endorsing every last policy plank that politician stands for is disingenuous at best.

Have Biden use an EO to end or counter spell the incantations of incorporation for all the offending golems of corperation.  Either the golem persons known as corporations get on the right side of history or have Biden and his mages and wizards and witches cancel the incantations of incorporation for those companies.  Kill the corporations.  Let their stinking flesh rot in the sun.

Froman: CVS? Based on an earlier thread, this is shocking, truly shocking I tells ya, to learn they are pro-Gilead.


In the weeks since the Supreme Court issued its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which allows states to make abortion illegal, there has been a raft of stories about patients with chronic illnesses being denied their prescriptions for methotrexate, a common autoimmune medication seen as the "gold standard" treatment for arthritis, lupus, Crohn's, and other conditions. Uncertainty around what can legally be dispensed given the new abortion restrictions, especially in states with so-called "trigger laws," has put doctors, pharmacists, and patients in the crosshairs of potential legal repercussions.
This is not about rogue individual pharmacists acting unilaterally, though. It turns out that the largest pharmacy chain in the country sent explicit instructions to its pharmacists informing them that new checks would be implemented to confirm the reason a doctor prescribes a drug before filling routine medications for patients.
Rebecca, a pharmacist at a CVS in Alabama, who did not want her real name used, said that CVS headquarters sent a memo to pharmacies in "high-risk" states after the decision came down. The memo, which she shared with me, and which has not previously been reported, explicitly states that as a result of Dobbs, Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Montana, Oklahoma, and Texas "have implemented laws creating potential criminal liability for any individual who knowingly or recklessly dispenses an 'abortion-inducing drug' for purposes of inducing an abortion."

The actual amount of dollars donated directly is laughably small.  I want to see the super pac numbers; that's where the real whoring happens.

Unanimous then.

So everyone agree Henry Cuellar qualifies and should be reviled and opposed?

I recently had a chance to switch and switched away from AT&T because of their support for the insurrectionists in Congress. Sure, they don't care, but if enough people did it they might.

One of the things that keeps rocking around in my head lately is Matt Bevin.  Kentucky POS who got elected governor mostly on a platform of, "I will end Gay Marriage" (even though it was federal law).  He then proceeded to loot and plunder Kentucky in the name of corporate profit and ranted (but could do nothing) about gays and anything else not straight, white, and stupid.

It worked.  It still works.

Megacorporations donate money to both sides and all candidates; I'm not going to be too upset because $5000 went to some rando politician in Texas.

What will impress me more is knowing, for instance, the CEOs position, or whether they will require their pharmacies to continue dispensing methotrexate.

I'd love to have a non-fascist supporting health insurance company, but that would require the United States become a democracy so I guess I'm trapped.


Have you told your coworkers, and told your company you want them to change?
Probably nothing will change, but if you don't speak up, definitely nothing will change.

So do you think we should just go along, or do you think we should work to organize action against them to try to change it one day?

Well I only just found out now about the donations, but yeah I have told HR and some coworkers that its the worst coverage I've ever had and the company should look for something better.

A lot of corporations give money to politicians on both sides of the aisle.

They're hedging their bets, and either way, they get ROI on their bribes contributions...

The photo with the post reminded me that we learned last year we have adult nieces and nephews who did not know how to write a check. One nephew opened a checking account and then came to us to learn how to write a check. This isn't exactly rocket surgery. One of our accounts charges a fee if we transfer money in or out of it more than three times electronically, but we can write as many checks on it as we want free of charge. Go figure. So, we just write checks to deposit money into it. Graduation from HS should include a class in Consumer Ed/Personal Finance that includes everything from comparison shopping to investing. My HS required that in IL (Class of 1974). One of the best and most useful classes ever taken.
