Why else would they want to raise taxes on drug companies?

Such as the provision in Obamacare which took effect January 1, 2011, raising $2.3 billion annually from the drug industry (Politifact confirmation here).

The political logic is there, just look at how Democrats argue that Republicans wanting to control federal government spending on health care means Republicans want people to die, or how Republicans wanting law students to pay for their own birth control means Republicans hate women.

Gonorrhea becoming resistant to last available class of antibiotics (h/t Instapundit):

There may soon come a time when there is no effective treatment available for gonorrhea, a sexually transmitted infection, or STI, that until recently had been easily cured with oral antibiotics.

Resistance to the last class of antibiotics available to treat the disease has been showing up in populations around the world, and will likely soon follow in the United States.

“We believe it is only a matter of time until gonorrhea develops resistance to this last remaining treatment option,” said Dr. Gail Bolan, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of STD Prevention in a telebriefing recently announcing new treatment guidelines for gonorrhea.

Why do Democrats want you to get incurable gonorrhea?  Whey do they hate you so much?

Who is going to invent the new strains of antibiotics to deal with this threat to reproductive freedom?  Definitely not Sandra Fluke or the Internal Revenue Service:

The CDC is urging the private sector to prioritize the discovery of new treatments, as there is only one new drug treatment currently in the pharmaceutical pipeline and only one clinical trial under way to test existing drugs against the infection.

The truth stings, doesn’t it.

(For the record, I don’t think Democrats want you to get incurable gonorrhea, but I do wish they would stop making stupid and dangerous arguments for political effect.  But then they wouldn’t be your modern Democratic Party, would they?)
