If Kerry is elected President, we can expect the profitablity of drug companies to be LESS IFFY?

doubtit, you win the "knee jerk" award for the day.

The drug companies are indeed very profitable.


I think Pfizer is the largest US Drug company.

In 2003, Pfizer made $1.6 billion profit on sales of $45 Billion => 3.6%

In 2003, Pfizer spent $7.1 billion on research and development.

Goofy ???

Do you think 3.6% profit is TOO MUCH ??? = VERY PROFITABLE ??

LMAO
