Pharmaceutial companies don't make that much money, so politicians shouldn't beat up on them in the healthcare reform debate, NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg said today.

"You know, last time I checked, pharmaceutical companies don't make a lot of money, their executives don't make a lot of money," Bloomberg said while co-hosting a radio show on WOR Radio this morning. "Not that they couldn't do better,"

Bloomberg corrected himself later after doing a Google search, in which he found out that pharmaceutical executives are "making a decent amount and more than a decent amount."

Bloomberg did take a shot at drug companies for selling drugs cheaper in other countries than in the United States, but said "that's not a reason to go and beat up on big Pharma."
