FDA and Avastin

Avastin is a cancer drug developed by Roche Holding AG. It is also a costly drug. Avastin is used successfully for certain types of cancer (colorectal, lung, kidney, brain, and breast). It’s that last one that is raising eyebrows.

Obamacare created a new Independent Medicare Advisory Board (IMAB) to ‘curtail spending’. Now, on advice from the IMAB, the FDA is considering restricting Avastin. It is amazing to see the range of responses from the left here in America.

Try searching your favorite internet search engine for Avastin. The Avastin debate has been painted as everything from “right-wing-nut-job death panel talk” to “the drug doesn’t work for breast cancer” to “we already ration healthcare, so get over it.” I’m glad some on the left are admitting the truth. It’s a little scary that they still think it is the way we should handle our healthcare. This will be an interesting debate to watch once the November elections are over (maybe it is just a weird coincidence that the FDA kicked the can down the road until then).

Here are two of the articles that I found interesting: one from Big Government, and one from FoxNews
