    End result, probably a slight edge to the supporters or something close to an even split. I had guessed it would have been a large divide, one way or the other.

    Pharma companies must be predicting a nice jump in profits because of this, otherwise I can't see them supporting the bill.

    Well, I mean people do buy medication now even when they don't have insurance coverage but I'm guessing part of the new, unannounced insurance mandates will force prescription coverage to the top.
