Kerry nails Bush on prescription drug issue

There's a reason the big pharmaceutical companies have donated big bucks to the Bush campaign -- and John Kerry spells it out:

Kerry said Bush is standing in the way of bipartisan efforts in Congress to allow drug imports from Canada. He compared the prices of popular drugs in the United States and Canada, noting they were close to more than twice as expensive stateside.

"George Bush stood right there and said, 'Nope, we're not going to help people to have lower cost drugs in America, we're going to help the big drug companies get a great big windfall," Kerry said.

"It's a monopoly and it's been put in place by George Bush and his friends and it's costing you a whole bunch of extra money and it's wrong," he added.
