TV Networks Fighting Against House Plan to Change Ads for Prescription Drugs

Jul 10, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The major broadcast networks –ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox—argued in a letter to the House Ways and Means Committee that a possible plan to eliminate a tax deduction for prescription drug ads, one of their major ad categories, would cost jobs, the Wall Street Journal says.

The elimination of the deduction is one option House Committee members are considering as they try to figure out how to pay for a health care system overhaul.
