all heard the saying that money isn’t everything. This is true, that is why the government wants the power, too.
As parents, when your
children open their birthday, Christmas or special occasion envelopes and find inside a check for their gift, you may tell your
children that you will deposit that money into their bank accounts. Because your kids don’t value money at this stage as much
as playtime, they let you, no questions asked.
Now, the government is
telling us that on April 15th, when they receive billions of
dollars, not from inherited free-welfare-like money, but from the 8 to 5
that Americans give of their lives, they will deposit that money into an
account called a Secretive Government Agency.
The difference here is
that the government has shown many times that it has not always been the
Unlike our kids who can
ask about their account and even go and see their balances, every American
is not allowed to see where their money is going. The bank, also called the Secretive Government Agency, has no
ATMS, no drive-thrus, no tellers, no front door. There is a huge back door, however, where public money pours in and
pours out into many secretive pockets.

GOP Lawmakers Propose Forming Secretive Federal Agency to Spur

WASHINGTON Dec 2, 2005 — By
creating a federal agency shielded from public scrutiny, some lawmakers
think they can speed the development and testing of new drugs and vaccines
needed to respond to a bioterrorist attack or super-flu pandemic.
The proposed Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Agency, or
BARDA, would be exempt from long-standing open records and meetings laws
that apply to most government departments, according to legislation
approved Oct. 18 by the Senate health committee.
exemptions would streamline the development process, safeguard
national security and protect the proprietary interests of drug
companies, say Republican backers of the bill. The legislation also
proposes giving manufacturers immunity from liability in exchange for
their participation in the public-private effort.
"We must ensure the federal government acts as a partner with the
private sector, providing the incentives and protections necessary to
bring more and better drugs and vaccines to market faster," Sen.
Richard Burr, R-N.C., said when the Committee on Health, Education, Labor
and Pensions approved the bill.
The agency would provide the funding for development of treatments and
vaccines to protect the United States from natural pandemics as well as
chemical, biological and radiological agents.
But it is the secrecy and immunity provisions of the legislation that
have alarmed patient rights and open government advocates. The agency
would be exempt from the Freedom of Information and Federal Advisory
Committee acts, both considered crucial for monitoring government
"There is no other agency that I am aware of where the agency is
totally exempt either from FOIA or FACA," said Pete Weitzel,
coordinator of the Coalition of Journalists for Open Government. The
coalition is an alliance of journalism groups, including the American
Society of Newspaper Editors and Associated Press Managing Editors, that
wrote to lawmakers seeking amendments to the bill. "That is a cause
for major concern and should raise major policy concerns," Weitzel
