Is it possible that our congressmen are talking out of bothside of their mouths

  1. I like to watch all kind of hearings, state, local and federal. Recently quite a few congressional hearing have been about drug prices. Many times I have seen various representatives talking about how the evil drug companies are over charging our senior citizens. This week I am watching the Govenors Convention on health care cost and one thing I heard shocked me. They were interviewing a representative from a pharmaceutical company that specializes in making low cost generic drugs. He was complaining that congress really screwed his company over when they gave an accross the board 1 year extention on all patents to the big drug companies. What!@! Is it possible that congress is out in public denouncing drug company gouging while in back rooms it is making decisions increasing their profits? Nah, I must have heard wrong. I must of misunderstood what was being said.
