Pharmaceutical giant Amgen leveraged 74 Washington, D.C. lobbyists and more to extract a $500 million giveaway from Medicare in the so-called "fiscal cliff" deal.
This is lavish and corrupt corporate welfare at its most insidious. We may not have our own lobbyists, but Amgen owes it to us -- their customers -- to use their own expensive lobbyists to give back the very giveaway they just wheedled out of Congress.
And if we build enough public pressure, we can make it impossible for Amgen to ignore.
Sign our petition telling Amgen Chairman and CEO Robert Bradway to give back the taxpayer dollars his company extorted from Medicare in the recent fiscal deal.
