What's this? The Klown agrees with a government agency?


In a move that could help the government trim its burgeoning health care costs, the Food and Drug Administration may soon permit Americans to obtain some drugs used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes without obtaining a prescription.

The FDA says over-the-counter distribution would let patients get drugs for many common conditions without the time and expense of visiting a doctor, but medical providers call the change medically unsound and note that it also may mean that insurance no longer will pay for the drugs.

“The problem is medicine is just not that simple,” said Dr. Matthew Mintz, an internist at George Washington University Hospital. “You can’t just follow rules and weigh all the pros and cons. It needs to be individualized.” More at the Washington Times:

Well, you heard him ... "Medicine is just not that simple."  In other words, you people are just too stupid to renew your prescriptions without paying a doctor a doctor's permission every three months or so.  Oh yes, yes, buying the same medicine as before is far to complex for morons the American people to manage on their own.

I wonder why he could be against the government removing its hobnail boot from your throat on this one this perfectly logical and reasonable path of action?  Hmmmmm, it's a mystery, ain't it?
