Obama & McCain Agree On One Thing: Generics

You’re not surprised, are you? In any event, expanding the use of low-cost generics, including versions of biologics, would be near the top of their health care agendas, according to their advisers, who were speaking at a conference for the generic industry.

“We know that expanding the use of generics and eliminating barriers to that goal must be a centerpoint of any health reform effort,” Dora Hughes, a health care adviser for Obama, according to the Associated Press. And McCain adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin echoed the sentiment: “Controlling health care costs has to be the imperative of any effective health care reform.”
