An irony of the drug reimportation debate:
Proponents of drug reimportation often say they are merely trying to make prescription drugs more affordable for American seniors, but the pro-drug reimportation stance of the House is so strongly opposed by the Senate that the provision is a major (though, to be fair, not the sole) complicating factor working against passage of a Medicare prescription drug benefit this year.
In related news, Ed Haislmaier’s work exposing the dangers of drug reimportation continues apace, with the Houston Chronicle and Charlotte Observer, among others, running his thoughts on their op-ed pages.
