    In the Edwards Admin. I could do it.
    PhD in Pharmacy Admin with 20 yrs of clinical and managerial experiance. Charter member of "No Free Lunch", an anti drug company sales tactic group.

    New rule #1. All testing to be initiated on CEO's, Board members, upper level management and their families.

    No Ads on TV.

    No samples in MD's offices. Free drug can be obtained for trial period after completion of a prior authorization program.

    Cost-benefit studies before all new approvals,
    performed by Univeristy researchers, not PhRMA.

    No licensing of isomers or metabolites unless they are clinically better for patients.

    Any drug developed with NIH funding repays NIH back first, with market interest.

    No sales reps without a degree or licensure in a clinical discipline. 1 visit per drug after it is released or 1 per year fornew indications. No glossy folders, and must contain reprints of clinical studies. Pre-approval of all marketing at time of drug approval.

    These would cut the price of meds by 40%.

    I'm as Mad as Hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore!

    •  I like your thinking. (0+ / 0-)

      I would vote for you for head of FDA.

      Maybe Bush can pay for one child's health care in turn for his and Laura's health care being paid for by the taxpayers when he leaves office.
