Well, he's at it again. Here's what he had to say yesterday ...
"The FDA has essentially become the government affairs office of the pharmaceutical industry," Hinchey said in a statement, which called the relationship between the agency and industry "far too cozy and inappropriate."
This is anticipation of today's sitting of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health.
A "Mo" untrue, unjust, and unfair statement is hardly imaginable.
The FDA is staffed with public health professionals on personal public health missions. They care, deeply, about safety and efficacy and about doing the right thing.
Mr. Hinchey, it seems, cares about headlines and hysteria.
An apology is in order.
