60 Minutes

This Sunday, April 1, CBS News 60 Minutes will focus on Big Pharma's
lobbying efforts influencing Congress. Included will be an expose of the
dirty tricks that were used to gain passage of Pharma's biggest profit
windfall: the Medicare Prescription bill which forbids price negotiations.

Congressman Walter Jones, a Republican from North Carolina who along with
Dan Burton, ar Republican from Indiana, tried but failed to prevent the
stampede. Jones says: "The pharmaceutical lobbyists wrote the bill."
"I've been in politics for 22 years and it was the ugliest night I have ever
seen in 22 years," says Jones of efforts by Republican Congressional leaders
to persuade defecting Republicans to vote for one of the most expensive
bills ever before the House.

The 60 Minutes airing coincides with a report to be issued by the Center for
Public Integrity, will focus on the number of government lobbyists employed
by pharmaceutical companies.

It was a GREAT ten minutes. They should have devoted an entire hour at the least to the subject.

Really showed just how corrupt congress is and how easily they sell Americans down the river for a big paycheck.

I'd say there oughta be a law, but they won't do it in a million years. OR at least not without some serious public shaming.

Or course that would require them to have some sort of shame.

And they don't.
