(NAM Executive Vice President Jay Timmons is blogging from the Republican National Convention this week in St. Paul, Minn., following up on his reports from the Democratic Convention last week in Denver.)
Rising health care costs are at the top of most manufacturers’ list of concerns.
NAM member Eli Lilly sponsored a health care policy discussion at the GOP Convention in conjunction with Creative Coalition with a focus on diabetes. Olympic medalist (1996, 2000 and 2004) Gary Hall, Jr. detailed the challenges he faced when he was diagnosed after his first Olympic competition. Innovative research and life saving medications as manufactured by Lilly make a difference every day.
Our nation’s policymakers can keep medical progress moving forward with their legislative decisions. A permanent R&D tax credit is an obvious step in the right direction.
