Since 1990, Big Pharma has made about $152 million in campaign contributions to candidates for federal office. (Health services and HMOs have given nearly $54 million since 1990.)

What is the priority of Big Insurance? How does that priority fit into social policy as articulated by the legislative and executive branches of government?
