Despite her claims to being a "New Democrat", and expressing
astonishment at the tax burden carried by New Yorkers, Hillary Clinton continues
to make it clear that she still likes her governments big, meddlesome and, in
the health care arena, in the price control business. And if she wasn't able
to get her way through Hillarycare, she'll settle for allowing the Canadian
government to determine the prices for drugs in the U.S.
"Hillary", as she likes to be called now, is proposing the
"Access to Affordable Prescription Drugs Act", which would allow price controlled
Canadian drugs to be imported into the U.S. The "Hillary" campaign claims the
plan would cut Americans' drug costs more than 15 percent a year.
