Proposed Rebate Rule Hands a Hefty Payday to Big Pharma Paid for by Patients AND Taxpayers
By Rich Pezzullo
There is full -fledged crisis that is not on the border – it’s in our families and can no longer be ignored. One in four Americans cannot afford their medication.
There is a controversial initiative being pushed in Washington called the Rebate Rule, which affects the ability of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) such as Express Scripts, CVS Caremark and OptumRx to negotiate rebates with drug makers for Medicare recipients. We need leaders from both political parties- including Congressman Frank Pallone, to come out and take a more vocal, stronger stand against this.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Frank Pallone, Health Care, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: CD 6, Congressman Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ-6, Opinion, Rebate Rule, Rich Pezzullo | 2 Comments »

“Frank Pallone has taken $7,000 from Facebook since 2010,” Pezzullo marveled. “Seven thousand dollars,” he repeated, to a group of voters in Middlesex County. “And he has the gall to sit up there and claim he’s an unbiased observer, to claim he’s representing his district?” Read the rest of this entry »Posted: April 12th, 2018 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Congress, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ Politics | Tags: 2018 elections, CD 6, Congressman Frank Pallone, Middlesex County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Rich Pezzullo | 2 Comments »

Congressman Frank Pallone and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi rallied House Democrats to block the passage of legislation supported by President Trump that would allow terminally ill patients to try to extend their lives by using experimental drugs that have not been approved by the FDA.
President Trump called for the “right to try” legislation in his State of the Union Address. The U.S. Senate passed the bill unanimously and there is bi-partisan support for the bill in the House.
The bill was up for a ‘fast track’ vote in the House on Tuesday, which requires passage with votes from two-thirds of the chamber. The vote was 250 aye to 140 no, falling short of the two-thirds requirement.

Conservative businessman Rich Pezzullo announced last night that he will seek the GOP nomination to challenge Congressman Frank Pallone in the 6th Congressional District of New Jersey (parts of Monmouth and Middlesex counties).
Pezzullo declared his candidacy at the Middlesex County Republican Women’s Club’s annual Reagan Day celebration.
“We can no longer allow enemies of American progress like Frank Pallone to represent us when he and others like him are spending every day trying to hold our nation back. I am challenging him because I believe that the Sixth District deserves so much better — a representative they can rely on, that they can be proud of,” Pezzullo told the gathering. “Pallone was elected to Congress 30 years ago and has not accomplished anything. He is too far left even for his own rabidly leftist party. Isn’t it time for a Congressman who will work for a living?” Read the rest of this entry »Posted: March 5th, 2018 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2018 elections, 2018 U.S. Senate election, Bob Hugin, CD 6, Congressman Frank Pallone, Doug Steinhardt, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ GOP, NJ-6, Rich Pezzullo | 16 Comments »
AG Lynch closes Clinton email investigation; Sonnek-Schmelz blasts special rules for powerful insiders
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced this afternoon that she is closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation based upon the recommendation of FBI Director James Comey. “Late this afternoon, I met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State,” Lynch said in a statement released on the Justice Department website. “I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation.”
Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, the business man running for Congress against 28 year incumbent Frank Pallone in the Monmouth/Middlesex 6th District, said that Clinton’s free pass is more than enough reason to clear out partisan political puppets, like Pallone, from both political parties.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Congressional elections, Frank Pallone, Hillary Clinton, Monmouth County | Tags: Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, CD 6, FBI Director James Comey, Frank Pallone, Hillary Clinton, Middlesex County, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, NJ CD 6 | Comments Off on AG Lynch closes Clinton email investigation; Sonnek-Schmelz blasts special rules for powerful insiders

Congressman Frank Pallone said last week that sitting on the floor of the House of Representatives to try to force the Republican majority to force a vote on gun control legislation was his proudest moment in 28 years in Washington.
Pallone told NJ.com’s Auditor that he is holding a “symbolic sit-in” in his New Brunswick Office today, as a “national day of action” with his fellow Democrat Congress Members, where his constituents could sit on the floor and discuss gun control legislation with him.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Congressional elections, Frank Pallone, Gun Control, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2016 Elections, CD 6, Congressman Frank Pallone, Gun Control, Middlesex County News, Monmouth County News, NJ CD 6, Phony Pallone | 1 Comment »
Congressman Frank Pallone’s (NJ-6, Monmouth and Middlesex) once formidable campaign war chest of roughly $4 million is down to less than $1 million according his latest report to the Federal Election Commission.
New Jersey’s senior Democratic congressman, Pallone spent $3,778,155 in the Special U.S. Senate Primary last summer in his bid to replace the late Senator Frank Lautenberg. He lost that primary to then Newark Mayor Cory Booker.
Pallone reported $938,472 cash on hand in his congressional campaign account as of March 31, 2014. He raised $200,449.64 in the first quarter of this year and disbursed #338,450.67. $60, 645 remains in his senate campaign account.
The $938,472 that Pallone reports on hand may be inflated by illegal contributions. A cursory examination of his most recent quarterly report reveals $14,200 in contributions from individuals during the current election cycle that exceed the legal limit of $2600 per election.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2014 Congressional Races, Frank Pallone | Tags: Anthony Wilkinson, Campaign Finance, CD 6, Frank LoBiondo, Frank Pallone, NJ-6, Scott Garrett | Comments Off on Pallone has less than $1 million in campaign cash
