Swallow The Decider?

The story "Drug maker lobbies Utah AG John Swallow to strike unfriendly Medicaid policy" (Tribune, April 3) reported on a local drug maker that feels wronged because it lost its ability to charge patients 100 times the price of a drug it scalped from another company. Worse, if it get its way, our Medicare tax dollars are wasted.

Who do we have to adjudicate? Attorney General John I-will-take-cash-from-anyone Swallow. I feel so much safer now … not!
