Healthcare

"So huge benefit cuts...I don't think that's where we want to go." - President Bush, 12/16/04

"The White House, in a private memo to conservative allies, strongly argues that Social Security benefits paid to future retirees must be significantly reduced." - Wall Street Journal, 1/6/05

Canadian health officials are drawing up plans to prohibit prescription drug sales to Americans, apparently the result of private discussions between President George Bush, who opposes legalized reimportation of drugs, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. The Los Angeles Times reports that during the president's November visit to Ottawa, Bush encouraged Martin to prohibit drug sales in exchange for potential trade concessions between the two countries.
