A Canadian Connection for Prescription Drugs

June 16, 2003

Re "Congress on Verge of Remaking Medicare," June 11: I nearly lost my breakfast after reading of the plan to revamp Medicare. Republican administrations have fought social programs down through the years, and the "new and improved" plan proposed by them would certainly put the individual's well-being at the bottom of the list. They don't know what they want to do but plan to have it passed by June 27.

There is one simple way to reduce the cost of drugs for the elderly or for anyone else without drug insurance. My husband and I order our drugs by mail from Canada, and we pay anywhere from 20% to 60% less than the cost in the U.S. Drug companies must contribute too much to the politicians to expect this price reduction to happen here.
