Caving Slightly to Public Pressure

The Bush administration has opened the door slightly to the idea of reimporting low cost, American made drugs. They're usually 35% to 55% cheaper than the same drugs that never leave the US. But the White House wants to put out a list of which drugs can be reimported. Even Republican Congressmen claim the White House's relaxed rules don't go far enough. Rep Gil Gutknecht (R-MN) said, "I don't know whether to describe this as an insult or an embarrassment." (LAT)
