    Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) president and CEO John J. Castellani has also criticized the latest back tracking.
    I take it you're trolling because you have no way to actually refute anything in the OP article... assuming you bothered to read it before you began trolling.

    “PhRMA got an $80 billion deal, and in return for which they ran $150 million worth of ads in favor of health reform,” Republican Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain said at a meeting with the President in February 2010.
    I hope they are angry enough to spend $150 million in favor of his opponent in 2012.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    WOW..look at this PB...HuffPo saying the president reneged on his deal with the drug companies not to require the drug rebates.
    Obama's Plan To Cut Medicare Costs Lets Drug Companies Off The Hook -- Again
    ...requiring them to give rebates...
    Seems that your liberal leaning (falling more accurately) site agrees with the 'drug industry sources' that FOX mentioned.

    How odd.

    I am not all liberals Other people will have their own opinions.

    However, in this case, politics happening as usual (meaning a politician changes his or her stance depending on the issue at hand) has worked out favorably for the general public. I am ok with that.

    In this case, yes, there are times where the ends justify the means, depending on the issue. If Bush (since the bush comparison always creeps up, I will just play the card) did the same thing, I would be just as happy about it

    In the end, I am all about making a better society and in this case, the resulting good outweighs the harm (mainly because it wasn't real harm, just a business deal doing south)

    Drugs saved my life. And if they cause excitability in small children, I gotta have it!

    I'm sorry.... I just can't agree with you … I see it as diminishing the integrity of the White house, and the President himself.

    While I can agree that the results are favorable, I can't go along with the simple fact of what the president got out of it. He got 150 million of free advertising for his unpopular health care bill.

    When you begin down this path, then you have no right to complain, when it's used in ways that you don't happen to agree with. I'm just one that thinks our elected officials should have morals, have integrity and be honest. When you go after supposed bad guys using the same means they use, that makes you … one of them .
