Boehner To Drug Makers: Stop Appeasing Obama

House Republican Leader John Boehner launched an unusually harsh broadside at an estranged GOP ally Monday, ripping the drug industry for siding with President Obama's health care reform proposal.

PhRMA has agreed to trim $80 billion in costs over ten years and support the president in exchange for assurances the White House is not making public.

Republicans on Capitol Hill have been grumbling about the defection of the powerful lobby, which is running vague ads in support of reform. The letter is by leaps the most public stab at the group, which is run by a former top Republican congressman, Billy Tauzin.

Read it all along with a copy of Boehner's letter here.
