Republicans Probe Drugmaker Political Support for Obama’s Health-Care Law

(Bloomberg) House Republicans are probing whether the White House and Democrats in Congress were promised political support from drugmakers in exchange for limiting what the industry would be asked to contribute under the 2010 health- care overhaul, according to a memo…
“The investigation has confirmed the existence of a deal between the White House and PhRMA that explicitly bound both parties to certain commitments,” the House Republican memo said. “The important question to answer is what did the White House get in return.”
Community: We don’t need investigations to prove that our legislators are bought and paid for by big donors. And that goes for Republicans as well as Democrats. I’d like to say the Republicans are opening a can of worms here, but we’ve seen that we can’t count on Democrats to throw these kinds of accusations right back in the Republicans’ faces.
