Big Pharma

Have you ever wondered why the federal government is prohibited, by law, from negotiating drug prices for Medicare beneficiaries? Here are nearly 269 million "reasons". The 990 form submitted by all "not for profit" entities shows that the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association spent nearly $269 million lobbying our representatives in 2016...a nearly $50 million increase from the previous year. Thanks to John Ulness of Ulness Health for sharing this with us.
