From the Quad-City (IL) Times:
Blagojevich pitches RX for high drug costs
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is making a barnstorming, campaign-style tour with one highly charged issue and it’s not even an election year for him.

Blagojevich was at Friendship Manor in Rock Island on Wednesday to explain I-SaveRX, a joint effort of Illinois and Wisconsin launched this week. The plan will allow citizens of the two states to purchase prescription drugs from outside the United States at savings of up to 50 percent.

Many Americans already are taking advantage of less expensive prescription drugs by ordering from pharmacies outside the United States, but Blagojevich and Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle are the first to take importation a step further by supporting the practice through their state governments.
