 On Jan. 15, by 85 votes in favor to five abstentions, the Chamber of Deputies outlawed the use of vaccines containing thimerosal for children under eight, pregnant women and the elderly, claiming the mercury-based antiseptic agent may cause autism and neurological damage. This marked a successful end to a four year legislative campaign against the chemical, spearheaded by Party for Democracy (PPD) Dep. Cristina Girardi. Then, a fortnight later, President Sebastián Piñera torpedoed the Thimerosal Law with a presidential veto.

I wonder how much President Piñera was paid for that veto, and by whom. So sad. :(

$o True! Who thinks this doesn't happen in the USA as well? (or any other country, but especially the USA!)

 

The people at the top are corrupt, simple as that. Heck, many people at the lowest levels of government are corrupt too!
