for Prescription Drugs
2005-03-14   Lady Jade
American pharmacists across the country are outraged with the new changes associated with the addition of Medicare's new Part D and so are Americans that need prescription drugs.

2004-12-22   Christy Harvey, Judd Legum and Jonathan Baskin
Christmas came early this year for the pharmaceutical industry. A Bush administration task force took the drug industry's talking points opposing drug re-importation and gift wrapped them in a 130-page report released yesterday. Instead of making substantive recommendations about how to provide Americans access to cheaper prescription drugs, the report exaggerates the costs and complexity of importation.

 Why We Pay So Much For Drugs: How the Clamor for Cheap Canadian Imports is heating up the 2004 campaign and giving Washington a headache
Helen Clark of Kennebunk, Maine, is a smuggler of sorts. At 77, the retired registered nurse doesn't look the part. She still does volunteer work administering flu shots, cutting toenails and organizing blood drives—at the Southern Maine Medical Center, where she worked for more than four decades, first in the maternity ward and later in the operating room.

She has lived in the same house since she was...
