Kerry's Criticism Of Bush On Prescription Drugs Overshadowed By Ad Controversy
Sen. Kerry also traveled to New Hampshire yesterday, where he criticized President Bush on the issue of prescription drugs, and implied that increasing health care costs were slowing job growth. However, Kerry's message was largely overshadowed by coverage of his comments on the Swift Veterans for Truth ads. The Washington Post says Kerry "ridiculed Bush for saying on Wednesday that the administration is studying importing prescription drugs, after having opposed it." Kerry, "using language similar to that used against him by Bush for waffling on issues," said, "He can't even make up his mind about importing drugs. Either you're for importing drugs from Canada, or you're not."
