A little sampling of blogger reactions to yesterday’s Senate vote scuttling an attempt to allow cheaper prescription drugs to be imported from Canada.
David Sirota: “How Many ‘Free Trade’ Senators Can PhRMA Turn Into Corporate Protectionists?”
Down With Tyranny: “Yesterday the Senate nixed the proposal to allow consumers to import prescription drugs from Canada and other advanced countries. It failed 49-40 with 15 mostly corporate Democrats who take big money from Big Pharma joining 33 crooked Republicans to do what their corporate masters demanded.”
Blue Mass Group: “This is PhRMA’s world; we just live in it. Pay up.”
