Dr. Howard, who is also managing editor of Medical Progress Today then goes on the explain the Orphan Drug Act, how we have higher cancer survival rates in the USA when compared with Europe and how the latest and greatest drugs are launched in the USA do to a lack of drug price controls.
I wonder if Dr. Howard has any idea how drugs are developed? I wonder if Dr. Howard has any empathy for the thousands of children in the US that have no health insurance. Did I mention that Dr. Howard has a Ph.D. in political science? Two of the trustees of the Manhatten Institute happen to be William Kristol (perhaps one of the most dangerous conservatives in the USA) and Hillary hater Peggy Noonan.
BTW. Let's update ourselves on what a great prognostician William Kristol is:
On Sept. 18, 2002, he declared that a war in Iraq "could have terrifically good effects throughout the Middle East." A day later, he said Saddam Hussein was "past the finish line" in developing nuclear weapons.
On Feb. 20, 2003, he said of Saddam: "He's got weapons of mass destruction.... Look, if we free the people of Iraq we will be respected in the Arab world."
On March 1, 2003 -- 18 days before the invasion of Iraq -- Kristol dismissed the possibility of sectarian conflict afterward.
On March 5, 2003, Kristol said, "We'll be vindicated when we discover the weapons of mass destruction."More recently
Kristol says "we now seem to be on course to a successful outcome."
