Congressman Lynch and Big Pharma


Along with many of you, I attended Congressman Lynch's Town Meeting last August.  It was very fair and open.  He tried to listen and reflect the thoughts of both sides.  The one adamant position he took was against the profits of the big drug companies and the salaries of their executives.  I am sure the entire MA delegation feels the same way.

The big drug companies have been working closely with the Obama administration for the past 14 months.  It has just come out that they met with the administration behind closed doors all weekend - while we get busy signals. 

Today big pharma started running ads in favor of the Senate health bill in the districts of the 37 Democratic Congressmen who voted against the bill in November.

They have all the money and the power.  All we have are a huge majority of the citizens.  Please call your Congressman, again, to say that the big drug companies are behind the Senate bill, which should make the Congressman want to vote against it.

If you absolutely cannot get through to Washington, the local office is better than nothing.  Your perseverance is laudatory!  Thank you, Anne

NB.  Please note that Cardinal George, President of the USCCB, has publicly disagreed with the Catholic Hospital Association for backing the bill.
