PhARMA Bought Buyer

This on representative Buyer–a representative for $200,000 that’s the cost of some drugs for a just year or two.

  • “Rep. Buyer is a member of the House Energy Subcommittee on Health, which regulates drugs, and matters in which PhRMA has a stake frequently appear before the committee. Buyer himself in 2007 led an effort to kill a ban on advertisements for new drugs and other restrictions.”

Medicynical Note: I wonder what Buyer’s position is on negotiating prices with drug companies, health reform, direct to consumer ads, etc.
