About Importing Cheaper Drugs from Canada...

With all this talk about importing drugs from Canada, has anyone even bothered to ask Canadians how they feel about the U.S. leeching off of Canada's taxpayer-funded health-care system?

Also, I personally get a kick out of the FDA claiming that drugs from Canada could potentially be hazardous to us Americans, because we don't know how or where the drugs are made. Because, of course, Canada is home to all sorts of third-world diseases and sweatshops, not to mention the little tiny detail of how we import everything else under the sun from them anyways.

My favourite importing-from-Canada question: if drugs from the same manufacturers are less expensive in Canada, maybe we should do what Canada does to keep the prices down.
