Next to Wall Street, the pharmaceutical industry is the most powerful political force in Washington. They spend huge amounts of money on lobbying and campaign contributions, and they always get their way. While one out of five Americans under 64 is unable to afford the medicine they need, and while we pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, the industry goes merrily forward. Despite Donald Trump’s campaign promises, the drug companies will continue to get everything they want until we elect a Congress and president prepared to stand up to them.
Drug makers have been carrying on with business as usual, scoring some early legislative victories, and reminding lawmakers why they are so influential.
