Senate Health Committee roster
New members of the Senate Health Committee are unlikely to support legislation favoring the brand industry. Senator-elect Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a strong supporter of drug importation, described himself during his campaign as "one of the national leaders in opposing the pharmaceutical industry - the greediest industry in the country." Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), who has also supported importation, will also join the committee (1"The Pink Sheet" Nov. 8, 2004, p. 5). As expected, Senator-elect Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) will be the other addition to the committee; the congressman has a history of supporting generic drug issues (2"The Pink Sheet" Nov. 13, 2006, p. 3)...
