Barbara Radnofsky on Health Care
HUTCHISON: We should look at that, but the plan was a different type of plan, where we had private companies competing, and it is working very well. The "donut hole" [of missed coverage] gives people the choice to cover the donut hole, or they don't have to, and that determines their cost.
RADNOFSKY: That response addressed the donut hole, not the criminalization of US government conduct. Of course Medicare should be allowed to use its massive bargaining power to negotiate better prices for drugs. It consistently works well for the VA. The only people who are in favor of criminalizing the negotiation of drug prices are people who profit from selling drugs.
JAMESON: Tweaking a bankrupt system is a parlor game. We need a real solution. I'm calling for universal mandatory health insurance.
