    The government can't even protect our food supply and yet they reject this cost saving measure because they are worried they can't protect us from "potentially dangerous or ineffective drugs"? Come on...

    They also paid Republicans a lot for that favor. Recently and during the pill bill debates.
    Try and not let your memory be so limited.

    Agree 100%. Most of the drugs we pay big bucks for are available overseas for low cost. These guys will fuck us commin and goin. They all suck.

    Get with the program pal....we are discussing THIS AMENDMENT and the roll call...
    majority of dems voted against...majority of repubs voted for the measure.
    This is a sad testament to lobbyists and their influence on Congress!
