PhRMA has said it would support the health care legislation provided the White House lives up to its deal. PhRMA said that deal included assurances that the White House would resist the effort by Mr. Waxman to restore the drug rebates for elderly Americans who are dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid.

Reporting from Washington - "An $80-billion deal with the drug industry that the White House thought would add momentum to its campaign for national health care reform."

"I've heard a lot of confusion about what was agreed to," said Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Beverly Hills), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, who wrote health care legislation that would impose more cost on the industry than that contained in the White
House agreement.
