Is Kerry’s Rhetoric Better Off Than It Was 4 Years Ago?



Is Kerry’s Rhetoric Better Off Than It Was 4 Years Ago?


“If I’m President we’re going to repeal that phony [prescription drug] bill." (Sen. John Kerry, “Ending The Era Of Special Interests,” Remarks In Nashua, NH, 1/21/04)


4 YEARS AGO, KERRY SAID MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION DRUG BENEFIT WAS URGENT PRIORITY (TODAY, KERRY OPPOSES BIPARTISAN MEDICARE LAW)
In 2000, Kerry Criticized Senate For “Missing A Historic Opportunity” To Provide Prescription Drug Benefit For Seniors. “We are missing a historic opportunity in the Senate in terms of our legislating process. The fact is, we have an opportunity to provide 14 million senior citizens, who lack prescription drug coverage, with that coverage. … Increasing costs coupled with the lack of coverage force 1 out of 8 seniors in our country to choose between buying food and medicine. Unless we act, we can only expect these numbers to increase. … We cannot afford to allow this problem to continue.” (Sen. John Kerry, Congressional Record, 4/5/00, p. S2148)


4 YEARS AGO, KERRY OPPOSED LETTING MEDICARE NEGOTIATE DRUG PRICES (TODAY, KERRY SAYS HE’LL ALLOW MEDICARE PRICE NEGOTIATION)
In 2000, Kerry Co-Sponsored Democrat Legislation That Prohibited Medicare From Negotiating Drug Prices. The bill, which was introduced by Senator Daschle and co-sponsored by Senator Kerry, included this provision: “NONINTERFERENCE.--In administering the prescription drug benefit program established under this part, the Secretary may not-- (1) require a particular formulary or institute a price structure for benefits; (2) interfere in any way with negotiations between private entities and drug manufacturers, or wholesalers; or (3) otherwise interfere with the competitive nature of providing a prescription drug benefit through private entities.” (S.2541, Introduced 3/10/00; S.2541, Thomas Bill Summary, Introduced 5/10/00; Julie Rovner, “GOP, Dems Spar Over Negotiating Language In Drug Law,” National Journal’s CongressDaily, 2/10/04)
