Mental Stimulus Package: Government Officials who Forgot to Pay Taxes Will Receive Free Memory-boosting Supplement
Date:2/24/2009

MADISON, Wis., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- A biotech company in Madison, Wisconsin is so concerned about the declining quality of memory among federal government officials that they have volunteered to give away free bottles of brain-enhancing supplements to any member of Congress or the incoming administration who has forgotten to pay taxes within the last 10 years.

"We realize that government employees in positions of responsibility have many important issues on their minds, so it's easy for items on their personal 'to-do list' to slip through the memory cracks," says Quincy Bioscience president Mark Underwood, formulator of the memory-boosting supplement Prevagen(R). (www.prevagen.com)

"We're confident that after 30-60 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," said Underwood.

Underwood says Prevagen is so effective at rehabilitating memory that most government officials will even recall times when they failed to make Social Security and Medicare contributions for undocumented household workers.

Here are a few of the embarrassing situations Underwood says might have been avoided had the officials involved been improving their brain health with Prevagen:

  • Back in September, Charles B. Rangel, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, (the committee in charge of writing tax policy for the entire nation), forgot to pay taxes on $75,000 income he received from his rental property in the Dominican Republic.

  • Tom Daschle, the former senator from South Dakota, was chosen to head the Health and Human Services Department but had to withdraw February 3rd over his failure to pay 128 thousand dollars in taxes in the last two years.

  • Nancy Killefer, former Assistant Treasury Secretary under Bill Clinton, was forced to withdraw after President Obama nominated her for the post of Chief Performance Officer when it became known that she had failed for a year and a half to pay employment taxes on household help.

  • Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner failed to pay $34,000 in taxes for Social Security and Medicare when he was a senior official at the International Monetary Fund from 2001 to 2003.

"Our goal is to spare our elected and unelected officials in Washington the embarrassment that failing memory often brings," says Underwood.

Prevagen(R) is now available in select GNC stores (www.gnc.com) and Rite-Aid Pharmacies (www.riteaid.com) and fine health food stores across the United States.
