Rep. Dan Burton of Indiana - Opposed by Big PharmaSubmitted by Cushman Davis on Fri, 07/08/2011 - 23:26
I just read the article from Politico indicating that Dan Burton would lose in the primary next year because he tried to investigate the connection between mercury in vaccines and autism. The execs at Eli Lily that is in his district are mad at him and are supporting his opponants. The article say that Dan Burton has lost touch of his district. So opposing the big pharma-industrial complex means distant from his constituents and home-state interests. The article did not offer any other specifics to why he is distant from the people in the district other than the mercury investigation. Anyone in the are know if his other views are closer to Ron Paul's view? Is he a liberty loving representative?
