Florida’s Drug Importation Plan Is A Bipartisan Blunder

It’s not every day that President Joe Biden and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis agree. But that’s exactly what happened this month, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration green-lit Florida’s request to import certain prescription drugs from Canada, where they’re cheaper. “Canada has the same drugs.

The Biden Administration Abuses Inflation to Attack Medical Innovation

It is theoretically bankrupt because price changes for individual goods and services reflect unique market factors in addition to broad-based inflation trends. There is no reason to expect any good’s price changes to always equal the average of all price changes (e.g., measured inflation). For instance, a deep frost that ...

Seniors are disappointed with efforts to lower Medicare costs — and rightly so

But wait, the law’s proponents may say: The federal government hasn’t yet exercised its power to “negotiate” — or more accurately, cap — the prices of drugs in Medicare.

Incompetence, Abuse Comprise 340B Health Program

There’s a paradox at the center of American healthcare policy.
