  •  So... (4+ / 0-) we now look to lobbyists to educate our representatives on issues of health and medicine?

    Are they in a better position to advise our representatives than someone with an actual medical degree and experience in the field?

    Is a contrary opinion so terrifying to this lobbyist that they can't bear to even allow a discussion on of the product their clients produce? Does the evidence in favor of their product not withstand scrutiny? Is that evidence not strong enough to stand on its own?

    Do we fear the perceived bias of this individual while simultaneously embracing the bias evident by the actions of this particular lobbyist?

    Do we want a special interest group -- any special interest group -- manipulating our system of government? Should this interference be rewarded?

    We don't see things as they are; we see things as we are.
