Pharma:1, America:0

And so it goes…
Another deal with the devil, or one of them at least, to deliver support, or lack of opposition to H.B. 3200.
As reported in the NY Times:

Pressed by industry lobbyists, White House officials on Wednesday assured drug makers that the administration stood by a behind-the-scenes deal to block any Congressional effort to extract cost savings from them beyond an agreed-upon $80 billion.

And what went?
The chance for the government to negotiate drug prices.
As a part of this bill, now.
Because savings would surpass the agreed upon $80 billion.
Lordy, too much savings.
Food or medication anyone?
