Politico reports Families USA and PHarma working together on reforming Medicaid.
Medicynical note: Medicaid reform is probably a good idea but should not take the place of a more fundamental review of health care policy, with particular emphasis on cost containment.
PHarma has one and only one goal. To promote and protect the profits of pharmaceutical companies. That’s their responsibility as the lobbying arm of the industry. It’s as close to a fiduciary responsibility as there is. They oppose a public insurance plan, oppose comparison studies of efficacy, oppose negotiation of prices for Medicare part D, oppose patent reform and by inference oppose cost containment if it effects company profits
PHarma doesn’t want reform they want surrender to their goals and objectives.
