Harry Reid: Big Pharma Stooge

All you Democrats out there that have been bleating for years about “Big Pharma,” could you please explain this to me?

The drug lobby has begun a pro-Reid TV blitz in his home state of Nevada. One ad praises Reid for saving jobs and for understanding that “good jobs with good benefits [mean] a better future.” The narrator then instructs viewers to “call Harry Reid today; tell him to keep fighting for Nevada families.”

But “Nevada families” didn’t pay for the ad. The drug lobby did. And while the TV spot makes only passing reference to the health care bill passed in March, there’s no doubt this ad buy — and the rest of the drug industry’s generosity toward Harry Reid — is a big thank you for the corporate-welfare “reform” bill that Reid shepherded through the Senate.
