“House Republicans are probing whether the White House and Democrats in Congress were promised political support from drugmakers in exchange for limiting what the industry would be asked to contribute under the 2010 health- care overhaul, according to a memo. Those involved in negotiating the law’s passage are being interviewed by a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee, people familiar with the investigations said this month. The probe, led by Republicans Michael Burgess of Texas and Cliff Stearns of Florida, has included companies such as Pfizer Inc. (PFE) and the Washington-based Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, a trade group.
 
“The House panel released the memo today, and said more details will come ‘in the coming weeks.’ ‘The investigation has confirmed the existence of a deal between the White House and PhRMA that explicitly bound both parties to certain commitments,’ the House Republican memo said. ‘The important question to answer is what did the White House get in return.’”
 
ObamaCare – with all its unconstitutional mandates, tax hikes, and cuts to Medicare, must be scrapped.
 
House Republicans have been fighting to repeal ObamaCare – voting nearly than 30 times to repeal and defund it. To learn more about the GOP’s efforts to repeal ObamaCare, click here
