Writing in the Guardian, Glenn Greenwald describes the career path of Elizabeth Fowler, who was, in order:
- Top healthcare policy aide to Senator Max Baucus, the Democrat who chairs the Senate Finance Committee
- Vice President for Public Policy and External Affairs at health insurance company WellPoint
- Top healthcare policy aide to Senator Max Baucus, the Democrat who chairs the Senate Finance Committee (for a second time)
- Special Assistant to the President for Healthcare and Economic Policy at the National Economic Council (in the Obama administration)
- senior-level position leading 'global health policy' at Johnson & Johnson's government affairs and policy group. Johnson & Johnson is a member of the Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America
He writes, "This is precisely the behavior which, quite rationally, makes the citizenry so jaded about Washington."
