I bet he runs for senator so he can have 6 years job security instead of 2 years in the house.

Companies must continue to do this right up until the exact moment when the patent runs out and competitors can sell the drug significantly cheaper.

I’ll bet he avoids the unemployment line. Stories I won’t likely see: What kind of baggage did the voters of Virginia perceive connected to his name, to transfer the job to an unknown?

Solvaldi, this is a perfect example fo why single payer is needed to put and end to such profiteering.

Of course, Obama, Hillary & the repubs could never do that to their corporate sponsors.

But the real question, I challenge anyone to truthfully reply, Has anyone EVER met or heard of a former elected official being in line for unemployment checks or welfare, ever? These type never had a real job and see no reason to get one now,
If in the real world, would you hire any employees who refers to on resume, “Spent half my time not at work, but raising funds to keep my job,” Only someone wanting to have government sweeten their bank accounts, would hire such folks.

We need about 500 Senator Elizabeth Warrens to get the job done.
