obama on drugs

July 21, 2009

I read recently that Obama is backing down on two key promises – importing generic drugs and lowering the time that big-pharma can hold patents – both very important in providing cheaper prescriptions to the poor. He may not have been able to do this due to the financial meltdown (as big-pharma stock is one of a few that is resilient), but I hope he uses these concessions to firm up other initiatives.
