Grisham Must Drop Out

Grisham’s actions have been morally repugnant. She earned hundreds of thousands while charging New Mexico’s sickest patients 10% more and needless costing taxpayers $43 Million a year. 

Grisham Must Drop Out — if she’s nominated, Steve Pearce is our next Governor.

National News Article from Politico shows the depth of Grisham’s Fraud

“Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, the leading Democratic candidate for governor in New Mexico, profited from the state’s use of a high-priced health-insurance program for seriously ill patients, even after Obamacare made such programs virtually obsolete.”

Check out the timeline of how Grisham used her political power for a decade to pocket millions.

Grisham calls being Secretary of Health the “hardest job on the planet"

“Lujan Grisham says she quit because the appointment was the ‘hardest job on the planet,’ and she hoped to find new career opportunities, including running for elected office.”

Grisham was in charge while 8 painful, unnecessary deaths occurred at a nursing home in Fort Bayard.

Letter from US Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division found “numerous situations where residents’ last days of life were spent in miserable pain as they died from the effects of what appeared to be reckless and almost willful disregard to their health and safety.”

The reported nursing home pain, suffering and unnecessary deaths took place in 2004 & 2005, years after Grisham conducted her “undercover” stunts in 1997 & 1997 to investigate nursing homes.
“Grisham also told the Albuquerque Journal that she “inherited” all these problems, despite being in charge of the agencies involved since 1991 and having done undercover work to identify them.”

Helping Drug Companies While
Prescription Opioid Deaths Skyrocketed

Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham became the NM Secretary for Health and Human Services in 2004.

In 2005, New Mexico had the second highest drug-induced death rate in the nation. Under her watch, “the death rate from prescription opioids other than methadone increased roughly 40% from 6.3 per 100,000 in 2006 to 8.8 per 100,000 in 2007.”

Grisham has received $16.5K in campaign cash from one of the “Big Three” opioid drug distributors (McKesson) highlighted in the recent 60 Minutes exposé on how the drug industry has fueled the drug crisis.

“Now in a joint investigation by 60 Minutes and The Washington Post, Rannazzisi tells the inside story of how, he says, the opioid crisis was allowed to spread — aided by Congress, lobbyists, and a drug distribution industry that shipped, almost unchecked, hundreds of millions of pills to rogue pharmacies and pain clinics providing the rocket fuel for a crisis that, over the last two decades, has claimed 200,000 lives.”

JOE RANNAZZISI: This is an industry that allowed millions and millions of drugs to go into bad pharmacies and doctors’ offices, that distributed them out to people who had no legitimate need for those drugs.

BILL WHITAKER: Who are these distributors?

JOE RANNAZZISI: The three largest distributors are Cardinal Health, McKesson, and AmerisourceBergen. They control probably 85 or 90 percent of the drugs going downstream.”

The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 (S. 524) was the bill Congress used to derail the DEA’s ability to crack down on opioid pill mills.

Congresswoman Grisham voted to pass this law, siding with Congressman Steve Pearce who also voted for restricting the DEA’s ability to go after opioid pill mills.

Earlier this year, the board at New Mexico’s high-risk insurance pool extended a contract worth up to $600,000 to an Albuquerque consulting group to run the day-to-day operations of the pool, which was designed to offer insurance to people who had trouble getting coverage.

But wasn’t the Affordable Care Act, colloquially called “Obamacare,” supposed to make high-risk insurance pools obsolete?

. . . the contract pays Delta and its president and executive director of the pool, Debbie Armstrong [Chair of the NM House Health and Human Services Committee], up to $600,000 — a $300,000 base package, plus another $300,000 in incentives to bring the numbers in the pool down to what the board considers to be a minimal level.

Not every member of the board thought a contract worth up to $600,000 was appropriate.

“I personally think that it’s a little much,” said Sandel, who voiced concerns over the bonus package.

Lack Of Commitment to Legalize Cannabis

Rep. Lujan Grisham only offered lukewarm support for legalizing cannabis, giving a long list of criteria for a bill she’d sign and at times even asking for more studies.

The Weekly Alibi called her stance on legalizing cannabis “a squeamish lack of commitment.”
