Edwards: Drug Companies Bad

Peter Hauck

John Edwards wants volunteers to lobby against drug company lobbyists. They're the reason "we don't have universal healthcare today."

Sound Bite: "They [drug company lobbyists] wrote the Medicare Prescription Drug law. Literally."

Universal Coverage is a tantalizing idea, but the public must be aware that we will have to pay for it. Hilary has been quoted as saying she "wants to be the health care president". Her opponent John Edwards has implied she may become one by negotiating compromises with the insurance and pharmaceutical industries.

This would be a shame since in my opinion allowing these two industries a large voice in health care reform is similar in part, to putting the fox in charge of the hen house. Let's hope that our national health care debate can tackle real issues and come up with some meaningful changes that can provide a more equitable health care system, one that provides quality healthcare to all Americans.

I agree with the comment by Dr. Johnson. It is not just the lobby for the pharmaceuticals, but I don't think the insurance industry would be happy with universal coverage either.
