Just watched the 60 Minute segment on these lobbyists. What a freakin' joke. The bill which was written by lobbyist, prohibited medicare from negotiating on the price of drugs. So, compared to drugs purchased through the V.A. (which is able to negotiate), the price is 3 to 4 times higher. Congressmen who pushed the bill through, have taken jobs with the drug or lobbyists after the bill became law. One Congressman is being paid $2 million a year in salary after Bush signed the bill. Everyone is a winner, politicians get money for campaigns or in new jobs, the pharmaceutical companies get windfall profits and the elderly get to meet their maker, much, much sooner. God Bless our Government.
