rxrights ^ | april 03,2014 | rxrights

There are a number of obstacles Americans will face this year related to access to affordable medicine. One of the most troublesome involves Section 708, a portion of the FDA Safety and Innovation Act (S. 3187) passed in 2012.

Section 708 requires the Secretary of Health Human Services (HHS) to establish rules regarding the seizure and destruction of imported medicines valued at $2500 or less. The proposed rules are set to be released on April 18. A minimum of 60 days review and comment period will follow. During this time, RxRights intends to mobilize our 75,000 members to respond on behalf of the millions of Americans that rely on personal importation as a lifeline to vital drugs.

If, as was the case last year, my prescription costs exceed the limit due to a hospital stay, and I land in the coverage "doughnut hole" the only option I have is ordering my very expensive prescriptions from a Canadian pharmacy. I save between 300 and 400 dollars a month, and that's the difference between living and just existing.

There is no doubt in my mind that someone wants me to sign up for medicaide, but that ain't gonna happen.

This is about the U.S. feral government granting monopolies to fellow crony fascists. Period.

... Section 708 requires the Secretary of Health Human Services (HHS) to establish rules (emphasis added) regarding ...

The Founding States had made the first numbered clauses in the Constitution, Sections 1-3 of Article I, evidently a good place to hide it from Congress, to clarify that all federal legislative powers are vested in the elected members of Congress. So Congress has a constitutional monopoly on federal legislative powers whether it want it or not imo.

But by delegating legislative / regulatory powers to a non-elected third party like the Secretary of Health and Human Services, corrupt Congress is wrongly protecting federal legislative powers from the wrath of the voters in blatant defiance of the statutes referenced above.
