Doesn't anyone remember anything anymore?

Doesn't anyone remember the "Bus to Canada" ads during the last election, when we were told Canadians were coming down here for cheap drugs? Their medical system, supposedly, had been hijacked by "government controls," leading to:

Restricted access to newer and more innovative medicines.

Rationed health care services that keep government costs down.

Long lines for life-saving treatments.

Long waits for cancer treatments.

If all that's true, then why would the Senate have passed a bill that allows Americans to head North for lower prices? Apparently, government controls and higher prices aren't as linked as Republicans would like us to think...
