Pharmaceutical Companies Lobbying Budget Hits 168 MILLION

According to a podcast put out by the Center for Public Integrity, Big Pharma increased its funding for Capitol Hill lobbying to 168 million… yep, that’s million.

 

That money, amongst ‘other things’, is used to fund 1000 lobbyists.  That is two lobbyists for every member of Congress.
