Headline of the day I don’t believe

From the Post:

Sorry, don’t buy it.  Are Republicans really going do selectively not pursue their pro-Corporation agenda to punish those companies that game the Democratic majority some support?  I seriously doubt it.  Just how does the Republican party punish Wal-Mart without punishing all sorts of corporations?  Furthermore, their threats are entirely non-credible, e.g.,
“There’s going to come a time when pharma companies are going to want Republicans to take a tough vote for them, and they’re going to be like, ‘Why are we going to walk off a cliff for you guys? You were fighting against us,’ ” said one Republican lobbyist, who declined to be named in order to speak candidly.
So, instead, the Republican Congress will vote against Big Pharma and vote with the interests of consumers?  Riiiiight.
