Big Pharma spends big on lobbying

Recommended Posts

Big pharma doesn't care about patients, they just want more money in their bank account.

 

"The pharmaceutical industry's main trade group spent a record high amount of money on lobbying in 2018, according to disclosure reports released Tuesday."

 

"Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) spent $27.5 million on lobbying, more than it ever has in a single year."

 

"The pharmaceutical industry has upped its spending over the last few years as it faces  immense pressure over high drug prices."

 

"The second highest year for the organization was 2009, when Congress was debating ObamaCare and the organization shelled out $26 million to push for provisions favorable to drug makers."
