awmakers are still debating over President Obama’s health care reform and how to make the plan work. So far, it’s been a plan Congressman Gene Taylor is against. The South Mississippi Democrat says there are three major issues he feels haven’t even been mentioned, which could greatly benefit citizens.
“Increasing the use of generic drugs. Generic drugs, you get the benefit without the cost and we ought to be doing that for what we buy with taxpayer dollars.”
Taylor also says, our nation has great purchasing power and lawmakers need to expand on that power to get better prices on prescription drugs. He also says, “The insurance companies were given an exemption for the anti trust laws in 1946. It was supposed to be for one year, and here we are in 2009 and they still have that exemption from the anti-trust laws.”
“Insurance companies need to compete for your business” says Taylor, “just like everybody else competes for price and quality.”
