    .jakes....

    It was "gaining traction" in 2014. It failed. There is a reason it failed. It is BS legislation. These types of bills are put forward to allow politicians to say they are thinking about the people. They always get tied up in committee and go nowhere. Medicare and Medicaid are broke. Do you really think that they want to add costs. You want A good medical bill. Get the government to step up to the plate for veterans.

    I talk to doctors all the time.n they are in my family. They are my friends. I consult them. I play golf with them. I dine with them. I speak t them very regularly. They all agree obesity is a problem. Not a single one of them thinks that legislation is the route to solving the problem.

    You should understand ha things really work and stop falling for the mantra you are falling for. People can "mKe up their own mind". It does not matter. Just because you and some anti-obesity sector investors want it to pass for greedy reasons does not mean it will, nor does it mean that thus BS legislation is good. If this BS legislation passes before some serious reform in the VA, it will be yet another national travesty. With that loser Obama on his way out, he will not be able to put forth his anti-American mantra anymore. The next 16 months can't pass fast enough.

    Obamacare sucks. Most Americans do not approve of it. Those that get freebies like it. Those that have seen coverage drop and eaters increase do not. Those that are naive line it. Which group are you?

    I am not going to support crappy, crappy, crappy legislation just because I have an investment. It is short sighted.

    The government has no business legislating this.....period.

    Further, thus legislation will not be the solution to the problems of Vivus, orexigen, and Arena. Would you support this legislation as much as you are if you were not invested?

    I believe in the type of government that the FOUNDING FATHERS intended, not BS handouts creating a society that relies on government. That stands above any investment I have. That us called integrity. I am not about to blow smoke up the proverbial asses of naive readers telling them legislation that is doomed to fail will cure all. You want that BS, put the conference call on replay again and again. 30 years ago this nation was not fat. Over the last 30 years we have let people make a lifestyle and living sucking off of the teat of government. You want to know why people are fat? It is because all of these friggn programs allow people to be LAZY.

    You say your are disappointed in my stance.....then you should print out a copy of the constitution, lay it on the ground with a flag and piss on it. That is what your stance is doing.

    Unadulterated BS.

    Obamacare is a national travesty and has increased insurance costs in a massive manner. My policy went to $2000 per month with that joke if healthcare. Costs are up and things covered are down, and deductibles are up

    I am saying that we should not want the government to legislate what people should be doing anyway.

    Obesity is a disease for a small minority of people. Those that stuff their face and do no physical activity do not have a disease. They are simply lazy in most cases

    I know, let's let the government dictate how often you have sex, whether or not you sleep in on Saturday, or what color you should paint your house. The treat and reduce obesity act us BS "feel good" legislation.

    All of these drugs are in the same neighborhood in terms of efficacy. Between 5% and 10% weight loss. You are talking a matter of a few pounds.

    Stendra can be good, but Vivus needs a lot more to sell to make money

    The low income can walk, run, and jump. It is free. They can eat better food and intake better portions. It does cost much more to eat healthy.

    You can see all coverages in fingertip formulary.

    Most insurance pays for gym memberships. There us free conciliar available everywhere. Legislation is the worst possible answer.

    No, I do not want to the the obesity act pass. I do not want the government getting into the business of that.

    If people are not healthy.....let them die early. It is high time that people take responsibility for their own action and inaction.

    How many times do I need to tell you the following:

    1. The 2015 treat and reduce obesity act is GARBAGE
    2. The 2015 treat and reduce obesity act will not go anywhere until the travesty that is Obamacare us resolved. That will not happen until after the next election.
    3. Having the government legislate that people take fat pills is stupid, foolish, and wasteful
    4. The transfer of wealth from the middle class is going to freeloaders in the lower class. Certainly there are deserving people that need a little assistance, but the cast bulk of those sucking on the government that are doing as a lazy lifestyle.

    Phentermine is indeed cheap. That us indeed why it sells. Does that mean it is right to require branded drugs substantially higher price points to be part of the governments welfare. HELL NO! Listen to what you are saying. "iF THEY ARE FREE FROM OUR GOVERNMENT". That is INSANE. Come, pepsi, coffee, band aids, lint brushes, tooth brushes, tooth paste, etc would all sell well if they were free from our government. Take a look a friggin Greece fir gods sake. Look what happens when everyone wants to suck off of the government teat.

    Wake up. Go to the damn gym, take a walk in the park, and eat proper portions of proper food. That is the REAL solution.

    Boo....

    I am in green territory on thus investment and like the prospects of smoking cessation. I have been pretty clear about that many times. My speaking in realities in the face of comments waving Pom-Poms gives the appearance of negativity.

    twalt.....

    1. The articles are not "timed" for anything specific other than the information is pertinent to what is transpiring with company.

    2. My motive is simply to cover the space in a realistic manner. Nothing else.

    3. My position is indeed long. If my position was anything other than what is stated, I could wind up in jail. With a wife and two kids, do you really think that I would lie about my position in this or any equity? That would be quite foolish considering my accounts, trading activity, etc. are all on record.

    I do live in the real world. The real world understands that the treat and reduce obesity act is a bunch of hogwash that will not see the light of day until after the election if ever. Obamacare is a national travesty, and passage of such bogus legislation would be a continuance if that tragedy. Has the human race degraded so far that we need the government to legislate proper diet and exercise? My thinking is not stubborn. It is realistic. Thus nation disfavor so obamacare, and disfavors flush legislation that is meaningless. I, as a person if integrity, would never want to see piss poor legislation passed just so o can benefit in stock I own.

    Think about it. Are we such a puss poor welfare society that we need the government to make our fat bill free before we take them? Those touting the treat and reduce obesity act are seeking excuses and seeking a handout. It is that plain and that simple. The best thing that can happen is to get that sorry excuse for a current president out of office and take out his nation destroying obamacare with him. It will take time to bring about changes, but I assure you that the piss poor legislation of the treat and reduce obesity act should go to the round file and never return.

    Eat right, get proper exercise. Not is that simple. Having a nation of people feeding off of the test of government will put us in the death spiral Greece found itself in. It is long overdue that people take personal responsibility.
