Douglas Forrester on Health Care


Tax credits for self-insured; drug benefits for seniors

A tax credit for individuals who purchased their own health insurance would vastly reduce the number of uninsured. We must pass a comprehensive prescription drug plan, because too many of our parents and grandparents are forced to choose between food and the prescription drugs they need.

Americans deserve affordable access to prescription drugs

Pharmacy is the future of medical care. The good news is that pharmaceutical manufacturers develop wonderful products. The bad news is that the delivery system for getting drugs to people is a national scandal. I believe making sure every American has access to affordable prescription drugs is not just a goal, but a responsibility.
