Presidential Debate on Drugs

By January 6, 2008Innovation

On the topic of pharmaceuticals, last night’s New Hampshire debates saw a push-back against the anti-industry rhetoric. Instapundit has a good selection of links on both the Republican and Democratic debates. Jonathan Adler, a Thompson supporter, gives Mitt Romney an “attaboy” for rejecting the demogoguery, which, if translated into policy, cripples research and prevents cures.

ABC’s Charlie Gibson was very good, asking serious questions and seeking information. How low have our standards fallen, that a moderator avoiding goofiness is worthy of note?

Granted, ABC’s new platform for political coverage is Facebook, not usually thought of as a policy-heavy medium.
