From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Senators push for bill to allow drug imports
To cut soaring prescription drug costs, particularly for senior citizens, Wisconsin's two Democratic U.S. Senators called Friday for approval of a Senate bill that would legalize the importation of cheaper drugs from Canada.

Speaking at the Washington Park Senior Center, 4420 W. Vliet St., Milwaukee, before a crowd of 100 that included many AARP members sporting red T-shirts with slogans supporting importation, the senators said sales of cheaper Canadian drugs would force pharmaceutical companies to lower domestic prices.
