I roll my eyes that they seriously think Pharma will save consumer $80 billion on this handshake.
Or perhaps I am not being sufficiently cynical. I like to think Emmanuel and the rest of his DLC "we will never understand that our base matters crowd" understand that the supposed $80 bln in savings is nonsense. They are trading away huge concessions to Pharma to get the $150 million Pharma has committed toward major ad buys to push the plan.
And they wonder why the progressive foot soldiers who financed the campaign and won them the election are a lot less interested in pushing this reform package through.
