Re: 2007 House Bill 4044 (Repeal FDA approved drug lawsuit ban )  by Jack C. on March 7, 2009 

The recent supreme court ruling will help people hurt by side effects caused by perscription drugs where a drug maker failed to warn    them about it. Maybe they knew about the side effect or should have known and failed to add the side effect to the drug warning lable. I believe the new supreme court ruling will help people seek regress in 49 states, but not Michigan. Does anyone know if that is the case for sure? If True the Michigan Senators working to block Michigander`s rights should be ashamed of their lack of action. I hope this gets tested in the Michigan Supreme Court soon. I don`t expect any action in the Michigan Senate until after the next election when some of the hard line Republicans are voted out and more compasinate law makers are voted in. I have a feeling that if this issue is taken up by the Michigan Supreme Court the law may get changed. Please write your Senator and let them know how you feel on this issue. Tell them you demand this issue be taken to the floor for a vote, once on the floor they will have the right to vote to retain ammunity for the drug makers if that is what they want, but its not fair to not allow a vote. Please write the Gov. Granholm administration asking for her help move this issue to the frying pan. Please demand all the Senators tell us their view on this issue so we can use the information to help decide who to support in the next election.

clean house  by Anonymous Citizen on October 25, 2008 
Its time for us voters to clean house of most of our self serving republicans who only care about themselves and the rich. I guess that is to get money from big medical companies to try and win elections and get high paying jobs from the big drug companies when they are term limited or voted out like our previous govonor. I have voted republican in the past but the republican party no longer cares about the people in this state.
I look forward to seeing the democrats running the state house and senate and the majority of our national goverment starting with the president down.
Good luck to you guys in the real world.

Help  by Anonymous Citizen on October 7, 2008 
Its time for our Gov Granholm to give this a little more than lip service. She needs to start putting pressure on some of the Republicans to take up this bill. She says she supports changing the bill but is almost silent about the bill. She could twist some arms and push this bill.
