From Bloomberg:
Canadian Drug Import Bills Divide U.S. Republicans
Republicans running for Congress in Ohio, Iowa and Florida are splitting with President George W. Bush over his opposition to importing drugs from Canada, where the government sets prices as much as 70 percent lower.

``I don't see why we shouldn't be able to import,'' said Ohio Republican Frank Cusimano, 39, who is trying to unseat a Democrat in the House. The issue became personal when his 58-year-old mother- in-law needed a two-week supply of the Pharmacia Corp. antibiotic Zyvox. It cost $697 and wasn't covered by insurance.
