Senior Fellow Benjamin Powell is Interviewed on American Medicine Today Radio on Drug Approvals and the FDA
Recorded: Saturday, December 12, 2015

What is the cost of the long approval process for potentially life-saving drugs by the FDA? The approval process can take up to 12 years and cost $1 billion. But there are other costs. Patients aren’t able to take drugs that aren’t approved and they might die or become more ill. Another cost is that a potential drug maker might not want to take the financial risk of taking a drug to market. Powell recommends testing drugs but possibly making drugs "FDA recommended", rather than "FDA approved." What’s needed is competition and markets to help patients and entrepreneurs, says Powell.

Recorded: Sunday, December 6, 2015

Senior Fellow John C. Goodman, author of A Better Choice is interviewed about Texas Congressman Pete Sessions’ proposed alternative to Obamacare. It’s legislation that will fix problems with the healthcare system that the Affordable Care Act failed to do. Instead of subsidies, everyone—regardless of income—will be treated equally. Under the proposed plan, which Goodman is helping to craft, the healthcare marketplace will be utilized to lower costs to consumers, with government playing a minimal role.
