Who is PHRMA?

First yes that is how you spell it.
Second Who are they?

They endorsed this!
http://sharerevmedia.com/component/option,com_seyret/Itemid,52/task,videodirectlink/id,701327/

And this is the Member Company List!
http://www.phrma.org/about_phrma/member_company_list/members/

So what are they getting out of endorsing the above?

(I am being vague, because some never really look at links they just start accusations.)

  • No lefties? None of you guys want to clear this up? Maybe give me a little, Obama didn't know the CEO of PhRMA raised his pay by 17%.... Or maybe an explanation on why PhRMA would endorse something that is supposed to lower Rx costs, and make it to where they have to produce generic forms which would make them less money? Anyone? Hello?? :::ECHO::: :::echo::::

  • Crissy1213, didn't you know.. It's Bush's Fault .. YUP, it his fault that these guys are so intertwined with the Obama Administration and O's Policy agenda.. Damn that Bush. It couldn't dare be that Obama/his admin are just as if not MORESO corrupt...  It's those right wing smearers again. Using facts, research, and people's own words to smear the left..  Man facts suck!...  (whine, whine, blinders on looking the other way whine...)

  • What's to defend? Obama appears to be a Corporatist like the last 4 presidents, not a Socialist like the right wing keeps blubbering about.

     I think you are correct. However, it isn't hard to find where a czar, advisor, or 2, or 3 (past, present,  haven't admitted to embracing or wanting socialist ideals for this nation? Or even having radical thoughts in varying political agendas. So, is it wrong to base an opinion of Obama on the words and opinions of some of his admin/advisers? Especially when he won't personally acknowledge where HE stands on their respective views?

    ***

    So Obama is just another typical politician (a very inexperienced at that)? Nothing to write home about? Interesting! LOL :o)
