Why do People Give?

The Post reports on political contributions from PACs and workers in the health insurance and pharamaceutical industries. 

W.J. “Billy” Tauzin, a former Republican House member from Louisiana who runs the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), said campaign contributions from his industry simply reflect participation in American democracy.

“We do what most people do in political systems: We support people with whom we agree and with whom we believe in,” Tauzin said, adding, “We also support other people who don’t always agree with us but are honest and fair and open-minded.”
