Pfizer Lobbying Hits Decade High as Dozens of High-Profile Political Appointees Become Big Pharma Reps. By Natalie Winters.
Pharmaceutical giants including Pfizer and Moderna have substantially increased their lobbying efforts, a National Pulse investigation has revealed.
The lobbying apparatuses at both vaccine-reliant companies — in terms of the number of lobbyists hired and the overall budget deployed to influence government officials — have seen dramatic increases since 2019.
The news comes one day after hidden camera footage revealed a Pfizer scientist admitting: “Basically, our organization is run on COVID money now.” …
Many of the new Big Pharma hires have come from consulting firms with deep and historical links to the current White House, and President Joe Biden himself. …
Among Pfizer’s robust lobbying team are alumni of Republican presidential administrations and Congressional offices. …
But I’ll bet there are no MAGA/tea-party/country class big pharma lobbyists.
The real scandal, however, is represented in the sheer number of political operatives who have recently gone on to work for Big Pharma, from both Democrat and Republican offices.
The National Pulse has assembled a list of those declared by Pfizer and Moderna alone, below. The list includes their previous jobs or affiliations. Of the 83 listed below, many come from high level backgrounds such as the White House, presidential candidates, the Speaker of the House’s office, and a number of congressional offices.

Where’s the media? Oh, they’re on the same team.
