“Reporter: Does this mean that the lobby was really so strong then, the pharmaceutical lobby against politics, and you had to pull back, so to speak.
Horst Seehofer: Yes that is so, has been the case for 30 years, until the present moment, that meaningful structural changes, in the sense of a more social market economy, are not possible in the German health care system because of the resistance of the lobby associations.
Horst Seehofer: I can only describe to you that this is so and it works very effectively.
Reporter: But it can not be that the industry is stronger than politics, so at the end of the day, it has to be the politics that is in the position to say no, that's not how it works.
