Herbalife is the most recent example of how justice is doled out when political parties are ruled by the rich and powerful.
Like the Wall Street Banks before them companies like Herbalife which are nothing more than giant Ponzi schemes are allowed to continue operating as long as they "pay to play." The Obama administration has consistently allowed this form of corruption to go unpunished and one can guarantee that Hillary Clinton will easily fit into his shoes.
What once was a playground for Republicans is now filling up with Democrats and it looks like the biggest losers are the "people" working class tax payers who are being exploited and drained of their hard earned income(s) and are at the mercy of the billionaires and millionaires who run and operate both of these political parties.
FTC moves against Herbalife, but leaves a question: Why is this company still allowed in business?
The FTC’s findings about Herbalife, in other words, couldn’t be clearer. The agency extracted a $200-million settlement from the company, along with a promise to straighten up and fly right. (The sum is a pittance, compared to Herbalife’s revenue and profits.)
“Herbalife is going to have to start operating legitimately,” FTC Chair Edith Ramirez said Friday, “making only truthful claims about how much money its members are likely to make, and it will have to compensate consumers for the losses they have suffered as a result of what we charge are unfair and deceptive practices.”
So here’s the unanswered question: Why is the FTC allowing Herbalife to remain in business? The answer, sadly enough, looks to be money. Reading between the lines, Herbalife has become too rich to shut down.
