For three and a half years, Barack Obama has been excoriating the eeeeevil minions behind Big Pharma. Attacks upon them were necessary to push the Obamacare legislation. So why would the administration be privately dealing with the very people he was trying to publicly destroy?
Pfizer Inc. and Merck & Co. are being pulled into an expanding congressional investigation about the agreement drug-makers reached with the Obama administration to support the Democrats’ overhaul of the U.S. health-care system.
The probe began last year, with Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee seeking documents from an industry trade group, said the people. When that group didn’t cooperate, the panel decided to target Pfizer, the world’s biggest drugmaker, along with Merck, Amgen Inc., Abbott Laboratories and AstraZeneca Plc.
I’d love to hear the administration’s explanation, but they’ve declined to comment. Transparency delenda est!
Is there anything going on in the Obama White House that isn’t shady?
The Republicans last month began negotiating directly with the companies demanding documents and information outlining what the industry agreed to with President Barack Obama in 2009 and 2010, when the law was being worked on in Congress. Michael Burgess, a Representative from Texas, said he’s been frustrated by a lack of cooperation.
Wait a minute; people in bed with the Obama administration are less than forthcoming? I am utterly shocked!
Why is this important? It’s important because Obama is forcing a radical new health care law down America’s throat. He told us that this is what the people want and need, yet its passage was only made possible with backroom deals, kickbacks, and waivers for his friends in Congress and Big Union. Every time someone investigates the legislation, another lie, or another untoward partnership is revealed.
Barack Obama is a hypocrite and a liar. I’m not sure which is worse.
