I'm changing my name to Steven McHugh Pharmaceuticals Inc. Then maybe I can get my government back.

Nope! It's a done deal. All bought and paid for.

But at least you, as a pharmaceutical company, are legally protected from any threat of your biggest customer (the government) asking for a quantity discount.

I'm Changing My Name to Chrysler
by Tom Paxton

Oh the price of gold is rising out of sight
And the dollar is in sorry shape tonight
What the dollar used to get us
Now won't buy a head of lettuce
No the economic forecast isn't right
But amidst the clouds I spot a shining ray

I can even glimpse a new and better way
And I've demised a plan of action
Worked it down to the last fraction
And I'm going into action here today

CHORUS:
I am changing my name to Chrysler
I am going down to Washington D.C.
I will tell some power broker
What they did for Iacocca
Will be perfectly acceptable to me
I am changing my name to Chrysler
I am headed for that great receiving line
So when they hand a million grand out
I'll be standing with my hand out
Yes sire I'll get mine

When my creditors are screaming for their dough
I'll be proud to tell them all where they can all go
They won't have to scream and holler
They'll be paid to the last dollar
Where the endless streams of money seem to flow
I'll be glad to tell them what they can do
It's a matter of a simple form or two
It's not just renumeration it's a liberal education
Ain't you kind of glad that I'm in debt to you

CHORUS

Since the first amphibians crawled out of the slime
We've been struggling in an unrelenting climb
We were hardly up and walking before money started talking
And it's sad that failure is an awful crime
Well it's been that way for a millenium or two
But now it seems that there's a different point of view
If you're a corporate titanic and your failure is gigantic
Down to congress there's a safety net for you

CHORUS

:D

Well, the good news is that the US taxpayer will pay for most/all of your research and no repayment needed.

Then, you can have the joy of skinning the very people who paid for your new, at least as good as all other's, marvel. You will no longer have to worry about people buying made in the US, deadly killer drugs imported from Canada at fair prices either.

Even if your marvel kills people, you can delay reporting any incidents for a good 2-3 billion in extra profits and, with any luck, the corrupt government will finally get caps put on torts, so you can just tack on an extra few bucks/pill to cover a more finite cost of killing people.

I dunno if this is a good idea, Bud. Steven McHugh Pharmaceuticals Inc sounds a little formal and standoff-ish compared to 'Bud'. If you've been Bud all your life do you think this is a good idea? I mean suppose 'Bud' McIntosh had changed his name to Steven McHugh Pharmaceuticals Inc McIntosh do you think he would have sold as many copies of his boatbuilding book or been so highly regarded in the wooden boat community? The name ought to suit the man after all.
