PhRMA Statement on House Passage of Health Care Reform Bill
Date:11/8/2009

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Senior Vice President Ken Johnson released the following statement regarding the House health care reform bill:

But there there's a lot of work to be done before its final enactment will be possible -- or desirable.'

"That's our take, too. This is a three-act play and a good critic doesn't write a review after the opening scenes. We
