Blue Dog-Affiliated Group Runs Ads for Big Pharma

"A nonprofit affiliated with the conservative Blue Dog Coalition of House Democrats is working to boost the reputation of Big Pharma through a series of paid ads it’s running on Facebook.

The group, Center Forward, is currently sponsoring seven news articles and op-eds that give positive coverage to the pharmaceutical industry’s efforts to create COVID-19 treatments and vaccines, according to Facebook Ad Archive. While the articles Center Forward is promoting do not necessarily contain false information, they are in line with messages from the Trump administration and many in the business community who are eager to fully reopen the economy more rapidly than is advised by most epidemiologists."

lol:
“Trust the seeds of hope our scientists have planted working around the clock to develop COVID-19 treatments and vaccines,” one ad reads.

2. Warming up for the big kill on the public option and anything that allows

the federal government to comprehensively negotiate fair drug prices. Over the next 20 years there are trillions in pure post tax profits at stake. Big Insurance, Big Healthcare, Big Pharma, etc, will fight to the death to keep the death skim going. Book it.

3. I PRAY

There are more than enough Democrats to sideline these Blue Dogs when it comes to votes.
Why do we even have them if their only purpose is to sabotage the agenda and create in fighting?
