GOP: Democratic Health Bid Is Partisan, Helps Pharma

Monday, 07 December 2009 11:04 AM

Top Senate Republicans say President Barack Obama's drive for a health care overhaul has become a closed-door, partisan effort that is aiding drug companies and other medical providers.

As Obama met privately with Senate Democrats at the Capitol, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said the exclusion of Republicans from the meeting underlined how partisan the health care effort has been.

Arizona Sen. John McCain said Obama, who beat McCain in the White House race last year, has forgotten his pledge to change the way Washington operates.

McCain said pharmaceutical companies and other health providers are doing well in the bills being crafted by Democrats, at the expense of rest of the country.
