You think just because he reads a few lines from a speech that says a "few nice things about him" that all of sudden we're going to forget the malicious and dishonest way Regressives have treated Bush for more than a decade?
Not going to happen
Actually, I agree with you and one of my disappointments was that the USG has prohibited this to support the ludicrous pricing we have now.
Do you know that Plavix sells for $5 a pill? A common heart medication that Doctors tend to prescribe not realizing it isn't on the formulary. You can (illegally) buy Indian made copies through Canadian "pharmacies" for about $1. But why should you have to choose between breaking the law and taking affordable medication?
I do recognize the costs of R&D. It costs almost nothing to make a medication, all of it is R&D, packaging, record keeping and advertising. But how about some balance in this? Some of these medications are frivilous but some are essential. Sure, you can be an informed consumer and in some cases generics can be found that allow you to buy affordably. But the Doctors don't care, they get free samples of, say, Ambien and they write a script and you pay $6 because you don't know that Zolpiden is exactly the same thing and is under $1. So some people are subsidizing other people out of ignorance. If foreign companies could openly market their products, you'd see Ambien at $1, not $6. It's not a good system and I resent that Bush and Obama have knowingly supported this.
My view of Obama would skyrocket if he truly reaches out to the GOP and becomes less of a partisan and more of a reasonable moderate.

Thanks. I had my heart surgery in 2011 and that was not the case then. So, I suppose anecdotal evidence has failed in this case. 40¢ each for clopidogrel - very good. Maybe I'll start taking them again although I'm reluctant because I have 3 cats and even the slightest scratch bleeds like your throat was cut.
I listened to the speeches live today on my way down the road coming home, and I thought as the three highly political, and partisan Presidents, Carter, Clinton, and Obama, that they were measured, and managed overall to keep in the spirit of the opening of the library...I didn't hear anything too awful.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
