It’s the kind of thing that makes you go “HUH”?
Unless you have been living on Pluto for the last couple of years, you know that the Dems have been vilifying “Big Pharma”. Those that watch the so-called “legacy media” have seen any number of verbal assaults.
- But, then you hear that Harry Reid (D-NV) has received $154,000 from Pharma PACs as of May 30.
- Hey, wait a minute! They say that they hate Big Pharma. What’s going on here????
- Reid’s lobbyist-bundlers also come from Big Pharma. Paul DiNino.. a lobbyist…represents PhRMA, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Novartis, Pfizer and Sanofi-Aventis…raised $23,950 for Reid last year alone.
- Tony Podesta represents Amgen and Genzyme, and he has bundled at least $78,400 for Reid.
- William Singer, a Pfizer lobbyist, clocked $39,750 for Reid last year.
- DLA Piper — the K Street firm that cut ties with Republican former House Majority Leader Dick Armey because of his opposition to Obamacare — has a PAC that has raised at least $26,400 for Reid.

So, Bunkie, are you puzzled????
A hint to guide you in these troubled times: FOLLOW THE MONEY!
The Dems crafted Obamacare to ENRICH THEIR FRIENDS IN BIG PHARMA IN RETURN FOR MILLIONS IN CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS! Guess where you have to buy your medications??? Duuuhhh……..
Just exactly what are you going to do about it???
Sit in the corner and sulk?
Say it just isn’t fair?
Say that the Dems are being meanies?
It’s time to send a message. As I have said before, money talks and B..l S..t walks, You can send a message that crony capitalism is over. Send Sharron Angle $25. Or more. Harry Reid will get the message. And so will every other entrenched politician that believes in “crony capitalism”.
