I spoke too soon on Friday, when I heralded a Senate vote denying a filibuster on allowing drug imports from Canada, where costs are lower.

Yesterday, Big Pharma struck back, winning a vote inserting a disingenuous provision, only allowing imports if the Secretary of Health and Human Services certifies the imports are safe and will lower costs.

And everyone knows President Bush won’t have his secretary do that, no matter what the facts are.
