What Ails John Kerry’s Drug Plan?
The Globe and Mail, 10-24-04

Perhaps quoting the article, from Canada’s leading daily paper, says it best. “Hypocrisy aside, does the Senator really believe Canada’s tiny pharmaceutical-production industry could supply the U.S. market? The bulk of our prescription drugs come from the same U.S.-owned Puerto Rico factories that supply most of the U.S. market. Why does he think it’s called “reimportation”? And does he really believe drugs would remain cheap if large-scale reimportation were permitted?”
