More free swag for politicians

Posted by Lissa on February 25, 2009

And I am completely, totally in favor of it:

A Madison biotech company is offering what it is calling a mental stimulus package to government officials who forget to pay their taxes.

Quincy Bioscience will provide free bottles of its flagship brain-enhancing supplement, Prevagen, to any member of Congress or the Obama administration who has forgotten to pay taxes during the last 10 years, the company said Tuesday.

“We’re confident that after 30 to 60 days of taking the supplement, most legislators and government officials will recall, without being reminded by aides or reporters, all tax periods for which they have forgotten to pay state or federal income taxes,” Quincy Bioscience President Mark Underwood said in a news release.

Prevagen is so effective it also should help most government officials recall when they failed to make Social Security and Medicare contributions for undocumented household workers, Underwood said.

Forget Bob Dole doing Viagra, I want to see Tom Daschle, Charlie Rangel and Tim Geithner doing ads for Prevagen!!

(P.S.  I listed Daschle, Rangel and Geithner because they are listed in the article and easily spring to mind, but I’m sure there are a bunch of Republican politicians who could use a dose as well.  Specter, Collins and Snowe might actually recall to which party they belong!)

    Can it help our elected officials remember the principles of The Constitution as well as the intentions of The Founders?

    [Brad, they can’t remember what they never bothered to learn in the first place. –Lissa (Note – replaced “you” with “they” for clarity.)]
