Cory Booker, the New Jersey Senator assumed to be angling for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, found himself in trouble with progressives Thursday after he voted against a measure to allow prescription drugs to be imported from Canada.
Booker was one of 13 Democrats to oppose the symbolic provision, but he was the target of derisive news coverage and a minor social media campaign. Angry progressives quickly noted Booker is one of the drug industry’s biggest financial beneficiaries in the Senate.
In the same week Booker probably got himself uninvited to Jeff Sessions’ confirmation party.
It looks like his NJ colleague Senator Bob Menendez was also in the Nay column. Why not list all 13 in the article?
Because New Jersey is the Artist Formerly Know as the Capitol of US Pharma. It now is a decaying beast, like the mortally wounded Stegosaurus decomposing in the jungles of Isla Nublar in Jurassic Park.
Laura, Mr Menendez doesn’t care about importing drugs; only hookers.
