Thanks to Uncle Remus for this link detailing Big Pharma's drug-pushing among U.S. Senators, of which our own Dick Burr is prominent for receiving a half-million bucks from pharmaceutical executives since 2001.
Unfortunately, Sen. Ted Kennedy is also listed as not only taking drug money but working, along with Burr and others, to weaken a new drug-safety law.
Bottomline: our federal reps have made it easier for drug companies to experiment on us at great profit to themselves and with limited liability should they accidentally kill us. Way to go, fellas!
