Government Medicine in Action


So there’s no confusion, I’ll make my position clear from the beginning: The idea of government-run healthcare is a bad joke.  It’s not just the bad healthcare that government agencies give that’s the problem – it’s also about the medicine and the healthcare options that they take away. Now a panel of advisors to the Food and Drug Administration has advised that agency to forcibly ban the use of drugs like Vicodin and Percocet that combine acetaminophen and narcotics.  The reason for their elimination?  Risk of overdose.
