Drug Money?

This toon of Bob Englehart might explain the following MSNBC coverage as much as anything. Lobbying stalls generic drug legislation contains the following:
An Associated Press review of lobbying reports, from July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007, found that $38.8 million was spent by at least a dozen generic and brand-name companies and their trade associations on issues including the Senate legislation.

I reckon 38 large buys a lot of access. I've long favored some type of Universal Health care and so far the plan of John Edwards works for me. That he's honest enough to admit an increase in revenue will be required to fund his plan speaks well for him. Peace ... or War!
