The people of the state of Ohio and conn need to know that the republicans are a BIG part of the prescription drug abuse problem we have . Florida is one of the worst states for prescription drug abuse . The republicans in Florida fought for over 7 years against the database . First they claimed privacy issues and when that did not fly, they went on to budget issues . Under severe pressure they passed a watered down version of a database . The doctors are not required to report the controlled substance scripts they write . The drug dealers love this . They can go to 10 doctors a day and get as many scripts as they want . They pay cash and there is no paper trail . This country needs a national prescription drug database , not just state by by state . Just like we have a national drivers license database . In Florida the republicans would only pass the watered down database if the tax payers did not have to pay for it . They figure the cost to be 1 million a year to keep the database on line , so do the math . I dont believe anyone other than the republicans would disagree to pay for it. The money was never the issue anyway . The issue is that the republicans protect the profits the drug companies and doctors make . For this one reason alone I would never vote for a republican . Please vote for Obama in 2012
