VA Residents: Tell Your Senators to Call for a Full Investigation of the FDA's

Earlier this month, the Washington Post exposed the FDA for taking part in a blatant “pay-to-play” scheme: companies paid as much as $25,000 to attend meetings with FDA officials to shape policy on how drug manufacturers can prove the “safety and effectiveness” of painkillers.

Sen. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia—one of the states hardest hit by the painkiller epidemic—is now calling for a full investigation of the FDA’s role in these meetings.

Ask your senators to add their voice to Sen. Manchin’s in calling for a full Senate probe!
